coffee.jpg blueganger.jpg As you make your way through Southside Park, you hear a shout behind you. "You! I'm out a job because of you!"

Eclipse.jpg crazybum.jpg A wild-eyed bum looks up at you from his burn barrel. He gurgles something incoherent and charges at you! Only if you helped the gangers in the Southside Park Quest.

He launches himself at you.

Eclipse.jpg trashgolem.jpg As you wander through the park, a nearby pile of trash trembles then stands! It lunges at you, far faster than you'd expect from a barely-animate pile of garbage.

LeatherJacket.jpg  blueganger.jpgMidgardSecurityGuard.jpgblueganger.jpg In your hunt through Southside Park, you discover two obvious Fang members discussing payment with a Midgard Security officer. As you edge closer, you see they're haggling over the corpse of a recently dead bum, with the main argument being whether his lack of eyes is "significant."

It doesn't take long for you to pass judgement.

(Drops old coins in addition to normal drops.)
LeatherJacket.jpg  ThirdEyeThug.jpg ThirdEyeSorcerer.jpg You hear two voices in the park, one angry and another whimpering. Closing in to investigate, you can see two men in gang uniforms interrogating one of the local bums.

Judging by the ball of flame collected in one of the ganger's hands, the bum isn't going to be able to help himself.

(Drops extra copies of The Eye and old pill bottles.)
LeatherJacket.jpg  Slasher.jpg You hear a muffled scream from the far corner of the park and rush over to have a look. In the shadows, you see the bleeding scattered remains of a homeless man.

Crouched over the grisly scene, another man grins as he wipes the blood from his knife.
