Storyline

A flickering hologram of a being in a black cloak appears. You cannot see its
face, and its voice is electronically distorted to prevent identification.

"Greetings, fellow being!" says the image. "I have contacted you on behalf of
the Very Serious Liberation Front here on Bathos. We are seeking a true
adventurer who will help us bring about the destruction of the planet. The
quest is dangerous and tricky, but should be well within the capabilities of
a skilled player." The figure leans forward. Sneeringly, it says, "Are YOU
one of those players?"

The figure leans back. "Find the bum in the abandoned Bathos train station
and kill him. He holds a clue to finding our headquarters."

Suddenly, a Vogon strides into holographic view. "Hey, trooper, you done
taping that message?" "Shut up!" the trooper yells. "Oops," says the Vogon.

This is a very complicated quest that may be done by any level. There
are ways to complete this quest without any fighting.

What to do

Go to the place where the plant's right activist is and eat the salad, enter the building and search petals and ask the guard about VSLF. Torture the puppy and they should give you the form up, up, out, southeast, southwest, north, 3x west, 2x up , pull lever, 2x down, push button (you have to be pretty quick from the moment you pull the lever or the machine will explode and you'll have to wait for a reset), 2x east, south, northwest, stand in steam.

Kill the girl or steal the card. If you search the junk in the university (science part ground floor (n, 3w)) you will find an old telescope. If you give that to the girl on the roof, you'll get the card she has. So no killing or stealing needed there. Give the card to Nick in the audio shop, give the card to the retinal doctor in the science place.

Go back to the government building and type the room number that Eliza gave you when you ask her where is the office of technology. Give the form to the droid and take the ink pad from the desk. Put your fingers in the pad and press fingers on the card. After you get the badge go back to the science place and go all the way north. Ask the doctor about machine and keep asking what component he needs and give it to him.

Take the device and go into the power plant where that omnibot is. Follow instructions and then when you reach the dog pull lever to get rid of him. Press button and then  ****BANG*****. If you've done the missions without killing absolutely anything (also non mission related monsters), you'll get an extra cash reward. This reward is only given once.
