Fixer Grid Mission

The second (Team) Fixer Grid mission is not currently covered; please add to the section: #NanoCrystal (Hack Grid Data Stream (Team)) below

If the Grid is Man become Light, then the Fixer Grid is Man become Laser. More focused. More powerful. And soon, it will be your domain... Such a prize cannot be bought, nor picked up while happening by. It must be stalked, and cornered, and won.

The floating rings of the Fixer Grid matrix

NanoCrystal (Hack Grid Data Stream)[edit]

This Nano Crystal is an example of both, the rule that crystals named NanoCrystal rather than Nano Crystal cannot be obtained in Missions from terminals, and the exception to the rule that such crystals can be obtained from Bosses in terminal missions and at Dyna Camps. There are other exceptions that break both these rules, so it is really best to consult another source, such as Kimi's Anarchy Online ClickSaver Rollability Facts

Requirements:


Mission Preparations[edit]

First, lay out a plan. Unless you are neutral, you will at some point need to travel to a hostile city, whatever faction you may be (unless you did one part and then changed factions). At the end, you will need to travel fast, from Omni Entertainment to Meetmedere to the Crypt of Home to West Athen to Omni Entertainment again, to Old Athen.

A Yalmaha would seem to be a good idea, but there are other ways. Engineer Beacon Warp can bring you to where ever the Engineer is. Another Fixer can Grid you in to certain locations, such as Omni Entertainment. And finally, and least useful in this particular situation, a Nanotechnician can teleport you to the main cities, probably your home city, saving a little bit of time getting through the regular Grid.

And you will need some Baksheesh to grease the wheels, of course. Everyone always wants a piece, in the dimly-lit, back-alley world of the Fixer. Seek out the nearest Luxury Shop. You are looking for the Toys and Curiosities terminal. Buy a A Leet Doll. The shop 'Tools 'n' Stuff' in Borealis sells this item. It is tradeable, but the doll given in return is NODROP.

Now buy a Nano Crystal (Instantaneous Encoding) from any Advanced General Shop, Nano section. Or two, if you do not have it or a better version. Sheesh.

The next part is the hard part of the preparation. A Bundle of Nano Tubes is required. It is best left up to you whether it is just the worst thing to have killed a zillion robots already for Dodga (First Clan Shoulderpads Quest) or Alvin (First Omni Shoulderpads Quest), and now you have to go do it again, or whether the worst is over, or whether there is just no such thing as too many, and the task of seeking out a medium-sized army of droids to destroy leaves you giddy with anticipation.

Contacts[edit]

Ofoz: And a good day to you as well! Say.... If you happen to know a seasoned Fixer, ask him to drop by, I might have a business proposal for him if he is interested...
<Player Name>: I am a fixer.
Ofoz: Super! So, might I interest you with a little business venture? I happen to have something you would like.....and you have something I want badly as well. How about it, are you interested?
<Player Name>: I am interested.
Ofoz: And you look like you probably are able to finish the job as well. The deal is that you get access to some pretty neat places and what I get out of it... Well, I get all your money!
<Player Name>: Access to places?:Ofoz drops his voice to a conspiratory level and you are not sure if the theatricals are designed only to fool you into giving him your hard earned cash, or if he is genuinely worried about someone else hearing what he has to say.:Ofoz: There is a place only us fixers know about and which leads to different locations all around the world. If you have been to the Grid, you have witnessed something similar, but this one I am talking about takes the idea of a Grid to a new dimension...it is simply awesome. So, are you interested?
<Player Name>: Yeah..
Ofoz: It will cost you though...
<Player Name>: How much will it cost me?
Ofoz: Hand me 25000, and we are talking... Now, pay up so we can get this done, I don't have all day here.
Ofoz: Cool! Ok, here is the deal, you need to bring me some special components so that I can build a nano crystal that gives you access to this Grid we talked about, or should I rather say the initial version of that crystal. First of all, go to old Smokey and bring me one of them Polluted Instantaneous Encoding Crystals.

Mission: Find a "Polluted Instantaneous Encoding Crystal" and give it to Ofoz.

<- Because few will have read all of this text, instead concentrating on the job at hand, it is reprinted here in its entirety ->

<Player Name>: Let me just ask you some questions before I leave.
Ofoz: Keep them short or I'll have to charge you.
<Player Name>: Where can I find a Polluted Instantaneous Encoding Crystal?
Ofoz: This particular item is prepared by my old friend Smokey Willy, you will probably find him in the more unsavoury parts of the main OT cities
Hey! And don't start arguing with him
He has a real mean temper.
<Player Name>: Let me just ask you some questions before I leave.
Ofoz: Keep them short or I'll have to charge you.
<Player Name>: I have some other questions, if you don't mind.
Ofoz: Keep them short and I won't charge you.
<Player Name>: What are the smoke loungers?
Ofoz: It is basically what the chip says, a group of computer geeks.....like you and me.
<Player Name>: Who is Smokey Willy?
Ofoz: He is an old friend. A bit rough around the edges, but has a heart of gold.
<Player Name>: Who is Brenda Diamond?
Ofoz: A very skilled woman there...
Be sure to stay on her sunny side so to speak, you dont want her to get interested in changing your anatomy without asking. And pay her well for her services, she is worth every credit she charges.
<Player Name>: Who is Sally Tall?
Ofoz: Sally is... Well for starters, she is too good looking to be true.
And more intelligent than possible...
And good to talk to. Me and her can go on and on and on for hours on end.
She is witty and funny and...I dont know how to say it, shes just dead cool!
Too bad I cant spend more time up in the Newland area...darn work all the time.
I wonder what she is doing now...I hope she is fine. I saw her a week ago and she was totally radiant.
I am probably boring you with this talk, heh-heh... But I can go on and on and on about that girl.
You will understand when you see her, she is the sweetest thing you ever saw.
<Player Name>: Who is Coco Cup?
Ofoz: Coco is one of these people that hang around coffeeshops and spend all day long talking endlessly about absolutely nothing.
<Player Name>: I ran across a Dancing Fool the other day..
Ofoz: The less said about him, the better.
<Player Name>: Who is this Sirocco guy?
Ofoz: Sirocco is a guy you dont need to know a lot about. It is better that way.

(gives back the same item, for the purposes of game code item IDs, but he upgrades it, and the mission is advanced)

Smokey Willy:
Ahh, what can ol' Smokey do you for on this fine day?
<Player Name>: Ofoz sent me to pick up a polluted crystal.
Smokey Willy: So, Ofoz sent you for one of them dirty little crystals, a smudgie, a grease gem, a piece of flawless filth!
Well... Then you're in luck, as you have come to the right person. And as we don't want to keep Offy boy waiting, I suggest you hurry along and bring me a regular Instantaneous Encoding nano and I will infuse it in my own very special way!
<Player Name>: I have the Instantaneous Encoding nano for you.
Smokey Willy: Well, no use standing around. Hand it over!
Smokey Willy: That was quick! And because it is you, for a very special price too: 0 credits.
Just bring me a Bburger and some Smudge Cola next time you travel through and we will call it even!
There you go, good luck Fixer!


<Player Name>: I have something for you.
Ofoz: Great, hand it over.
Ofoz: Nice! I hope old Smokey didn't give you any troubles, he can be a bit cranky sometimes.
Next you need to go find me some wafer thin, home grown nano crystals
Pretty rare commodity they are, but not impossible to get hold of I am told.

Mission: Find some wafer thin nano crystals and bring them to Ofoz

<Player Name>: Where can I find some wafer-thin nano crystals?
Ofoz: I really have no idea where exactly to locate this stuff...
I have heard though that some old witch down in the Broken Shores has been known to sell them.
And no, I dont know her name.


Brenda Diamond recognizes Ofoz' name and is displeased. She appears to cast a hex on him, muttering something about insects. She gives the wafers.
<Player Name>: I have something for you.
Ofoz: Great, hand it over.
Ofoz: What?! You actually found some!
You are proving to be more resourceful than you look
I am not going to ask you where you got these or what you had to pay for them, but this is really cool, well done.
You cant help noticing that Ofoz is dotted in huge red stings from some insects..you dont ask, but to stay on the safe side you decide never to make old Brenda mad if you can help it.
Ofoz: Now I need you to go get me a bundle of nano tubes. That should not be a big problem for someone like you.

Mission: Find a bundle of nano tubes and give them to Ofoz

<Player Name>: Where am I supposed to find bundles of nano tubes?
Ofoz: Try tearing some robots apart, you will find what you need.

Mission: Get the ICC brand AI processing cube, or some fancy toy that contains it and give it to Ofoz.

<Player Name>: Where am I supposed to find an ICC brand AI processing cube?
Ofoz: This is a tricky one, but it might actually not be so hard to aquire this commodity. I have heard that the newest supertoys from the intergalactic luxury toy shop; "But mommy loves you!!" contain this exact AI cube.
You dont look like you know any of the upper class omni brats that might have parents with the amounts of money needed to waste on theese kind of things. But if you manage to rob some rich-kid of its possessions, give me the toy, you can keep the lollypops.
Ofoz: There we go, this seems to be all that is needed to start the process and yes, the doll does indeed contain the right cube, I need to make a note of that.
Ofoz makes some notes in all haste and then starts putting together the items you got for him. Before long, he hands you something resembling a nano crystal, but one without the usual glow and humming. It is obviously not active yet.
Ofoz:
From here on you need to make haste completing the upgrading process of the nano as it is VERY volatile in its current and incomplete state.
For security reasons I can not tell you where this mission will lead you, but the next person you need to hand the crystal to is no other than Smokey Willy, who I believe you have met already. He will tell you where to go from there.
Here you go! Now hurry and good luck!

Give Incomplete Grid Hacker Crystal to Smokey Willy in Omni Entertainment. You need to hurry, as crystals in this state deteriorate VERY fast.

Run fixer...RUN !

10 minutes

Smokey Willy:
Ahh, what can ol' Smokey do you for on this fine day?
<Player Name>: I was supposed to give you this Incomplete Grid Hacker Crystal?
Smokey Willy: Whooaa, you better hurry up there.
What's the holdup? Give me the crystal already!
Smokey Willy: On a mission to become a real Fixer I see!
Here you go, this is still a totally useless piece of junk, but if you hurry and give this to Sally Tall in Newland Desert somewhere, she will be able to carry the process further and tell you what you need to do next.
Why are you still here?! Now GET GOING, or the crystal will end up like an atrox in a fertility study.
<Player Name>: Useless?
Smokey Willy: Yes, totally useless! Now go, GO!
Give Incomplete Grid Hacker Crystal to Sally Tall in Meedmedere. You need to hurry, as crystals in this state deteriorate VERY fast.
Run fixer...RUN !

Realtime left: 0 days, 00 hours, 09 minutes.

very north in hole

Sally Tall: Hi there! I've been looking forward to meeting someone I can talk to..
<Player Name>: I'm in a hurry! I was told to give you this Crystal.
Sally Tall: Ohh. Hold on there.
I'm not in a hurry.
What crystal? Let's take a closer look.
Sally Tall: Let me see... Yes, this was how I did it last time, I think...
Yes, this way, or was it that way...hmmm...
Well, you will find out if I made this right, I am sure.
Now hurry over to Broken Shores, there is a witch out in the desert close to Home that will build this thing further.

If I didnt manage to screw this up for you....

I am sure this didn't look like this last time I made one...
But then again, all this nano stuff looks a bit strange to me anyways..
Like my mom used to say, "No nanos are good nanos, except the real useful ones of course", wise woman she was.
Makes you wonder about the meaning of it all doesnt it?...
I mean Life, the Universe and Everything.
The nanos, that is.
One can really waste away all day wondering about this stuff...
Good thing you are not slowing me down....
You want to stay and talk some more?
That reminds me of something my mother used to say...

Give Incomplete Grid Hacker Crystal to Brenda Diamond in the Broken Shores. You need to hurry, as crystals in this state deteriorate VERY fast.

Run fixer...RUN !

Realtime left: 0 days, 00 hours, 09 minutes.

Brenda Diamond turns to you and looks deep into your eyes
Brenda Diamond is still looking...
Brenda Diamond is staring still...
You are really starting to feel uncomfortable under the steadfast gaze of the woman, when she finally speaks...
Brenda Diamond: I hope I meet you in good health traveller, or should I say "a fixer on a mission"?
Can I in any way be of service?
<Player Name>: I have something for you.
Brenda Diamond: Is that right, darling? Let me see what you got.
Brenda Diamond: Now that's a pretty sight, not often people pass here doing anything interesting or important...
Brenda looks at you in a strange kind of way...in a way that leaves you not entirely at ease
Brenda Diamond: I might even be inclined to let you continue your journey without hurting you.
Tell you what, give us a kiss and I will even help you!
And with that, this old hag makes a go for it!!
Brenda Diamond:
No, not a dry, old granny kiss!
Now come on, do it properly!!
Hahaha! Got you there, didn't I? Going around kissing old ladies like this, think about if somone saw you! Hahahaha!
Now go, go before I turn you into a Leet. Hand this thing I gave you to Coco in "The Cup" in West Athens, she will know what to do next.

Give Incomplete Grid Hacker Crystal to Coco, you can find her in the city of Athens. You need to hurry, as crystals in this state deteriorate VERY fast.

Run fixer...RUN !

Realtime left: 0 days, 00 hours, 09 minutes.


Coco: Cool runnings, Fixer!
<Player Name>: Here's the Incomplete Grid Hacker Crystal..
Coco: Less talking now, just hand it over.
Coco seems to be well aware of your mission and reaches out for the Incomplete Crystal you're carrying.
Coco: Under other circumstances I would offer you a cappuccino, but you really need to hurry with this here thing to Baboons in Omni Entertainment. There is a guy there that will help you with the next step. Just look for a big guy dancing his butt off
You can't miss him.
Give Incomplete Grid Hacker Crystal to "A dancing Fool", there are quite few of those around in the nightclubs of Omni Entertainment, but this one rather stands out from the crowd, you will know him when you see him. You need to hurry, as crystals in this state deteriorate VERY fast.
Run fixer...RUN !

Realtime left: 0 days, 00 hours, 09 minutes.


A Dancing Fool: Groovy! GROOVY!! Yeah!
How do you like my moves?? Pretty cool for someone of my build, right?!
<Player Name>: Here, the Incomplete Crystal, just take it so I can finish my mission!
A Dancing Fool: Don't mess up my groove here!
Hand it over.
A Dancing Fool: Ohh.. I am afraid you will have to hurry with this stuff to Sirocco in Old Athens, but when you are done, come back and dance, DANCE !!

Give Incomplete Grid Hacker Crystal to Sirocco, it is not easy to locate that guy, but most often you can find him snooping around in Old Athens. You need to hurry, as crystals in this state deteriorate VERY fast.

Run fixer...RUN !

Realtime left: 0 days, 00 hours, 09 minutes.


Sirocco: Do I know you?
Sirocco looks at you suspiciously.
<Player Name>: I have the crystal for you.
Sirocco: So you say... Hand it over then.
Sirocco: Well well... Aren't we all sweaty and panting.
I guess this is what you wanted, a gateway to modern ways of traveling if I may say so.
Welcome to the club, young Fixer. Use your powers wisely. This little thing can lead you to places not even I would like to go to without some very trusted friends.
When you think you are capable, bring back this card I gave you and if you measure up to what is needed, I will have some more for you to do. Expand on your newly aquired powers so to speak!
But until then, safe journeys!


<Player Name>: I have some questions before I leave.
Sirocco: I see.
Well, go ahead..
<Player Name>: I was supposed to give you the Membership Card?
Sirocco: Gung-ho and ready to die I see. I do understand your eagerness, but I am afraid you are still lacking somewhat in skill. Come back to me later and I will tell you more.
