A Darker Future
Location: Soluna City -> Soluna City East -> Mysterious Stranger -> Quests -> A Dark Future

Requirements: Completion of The Stranger's Plan
Release Date: September 20th, 2015
Stranger: Ah, you've returned. I have discovered where the ghosts have been hiding.
Stranger: They are using an old observatory, scavenging pieces from it and utilizing the rest of what they have stolen.
<You>: Any idea what they're attempting to do?
Stranger: Possibly, but nothing that is worth sharing.
<You>: Try again.
Stranger: Excuse me?
<You>: You heard me. Try again. You're hiding something and I don't want to walk into a situation where I don't know all the facts again.
<You>: What. Do. You. Know.
Stranger: Very well, since you are so persuasive.
Stranger: They may be attempting to open a portal to another plane of existence.
Stranger: I do not know why, but that is all I can consider them doing with the technology they have.
<You>: Maybe they're trying to open a portal to whatever dimension Mysterious Johnson uses to store all those ghosts we capture?
Stranger: That very well may be the case. It's beside the point though.
Stranger: You should proceed to the observatory and discover what they are actually doing.
<You>: It seems quiet enough. There also don't appear to be any of the ghost mecha around.
<You>: What is that...
<You>: OK, that can't be good. I need to figure out what's going on.
(After defeating Spectres:)
<You>: That looks to be the last of them. There weren't any of the mecha from before here though.
<You>: The machine they were using seems to be burned out. It looks like...
<You>: Ok, that's not the blue glow from earlier which is more a bad sign that it just turning back on. Ghosts I could deal with.
<You>: Also, since it looks like Shadowscythe tech, I should probably go grab my mecha and just level this place before it gets worse.
<You>: Yep, leveling the building seems like the best choice.
<You>: Alright, time to wipe whatever that is off the face of...
???: Hmph. Are you the one that opened the portal, freeing me upon this realm?
<You>: No, you have a bunch of kleptomaniacal ghosts who built a portal generator to thank.
???: Then you serve no further purpose. Begone!
(If defeated by Doom Lord:)
???: Pathetic. If this is the strength of those defending this realm I will have no problem conquering it for the Master.
???: Now get out of my sight before I choose to destroy you completely.
(After defeating the Doom Lord:)
<You>: Alright, enough is enough. I'm making sure that portal generator is in little pieces and then the Stranger has some questions to answer.
