Anachronox/Sender Station revisited
 Sender Station, Take 2
After the cutscene you're back in the Lounge of Commerce. Show the package to Salsa, who asks you to take it to Mardoman.
You now have five characters, and two story quests to choose from. It doesn't really matter what you say to Rho and Grumpos; feel free to agree to both. We're going to do Rho's quest first.
 Anachronox, Take 2
But first, take Grumpos and Democratus back to Anachronox.
By the doorway to the terminal is a boy looking up into a tree; apparently his plane is lost. Go up the ramps and all the way around to the right and tractor it in. Trade it to the kid for a Bugaboo APE cartridge.
In Sender Station Station, Yammer the monk in Gate 2 for Master Yammer. Also talk to Frankie in the Gate 3 lounge to get Wanda's Bracelet (MysBlock +2), and pay the guy under the Customs sign $503 for a TACO.
Head out to the shuttle through Gate 6, and choose to go to Anachronox.
You may have noticed the TACO while going from level 4 to 3 in the Platform elevator on a previous visit. Now that you have Democratus, you can get it.With the elevator on level 3, look up, hold down CTRL, and click madly around the left side of the ledge where it is until the minigame starts.
Take the package to Mardoman for a Mysteria Gold Shieldcell (128/80/64). He asks you to meet a floater near the bug mound in Casinox. While you're in Rowdy's, have Rho talk to the doorman for some silliness.
Head to the MysTech Museum, visit Plib, the merchant upstairs, and buy the Theories of Asagan (Scanalyze, Rho's 1st-level skill). Note that you can buy it, and even use it on her, without her being in the party.
In Zordo's, Democtratus can tractor in a Cordicom Powerbelt Cell (48/32/16) from over the door. Also buy more Wristbands of Whacking. Three should do.
Go find the floater. He tells you about a meet in Frank's Privacy Suite. Head for the basement room at Frank's and pick two locks to get into the privacy suite. Head in until Boots says it's time to leave.
Have Democratus talk to the Democratan by the desk for Master Tractor.
You can give Wanda's Bracelet to Wanda in room D; she gives you a note to take back to Frankie in the departure lounge of Sender Station, for which he will give you $500. Or you can just keep the bracelet.
Talk to the guy in front of the Cinema about his critter which has gone missing. The critter is in the Junkyard area. On the same way you went to get to Eddie you will find it. When you killed it go back to deliver its dead husk and get your 500$ reward.
If you care, you can fight through the Junkyard again until the battle in a room with a truck: up on a board is a HealGrease Complete. Tractor it in.
Head toward the Tunnels, but turn right at the fork and Yammer the guard for a Cobalt Crawler. Now head back to Mardoman for a Rapid Wristlet (Speed +2). On your way back out, in the Spiral Democratus can Tractor in a HealGrease Complete from a pipe over the sign for the Platform Area.
If you're feeling motivated, you can pay another visit to the MysTech Tunnels for some MysTech, but you'll be back later and it's not really worth the time now. If you want to, fight through until the fight with six Skitters, then Tractor in the WinkyVortex MysTech (Purple, Great).
Just past where you found the Vistin Spikehead, turn around and fight a Cave Crawler and a Skitter for NutsHammer MysTech (Yellow, Great).
At the junction, turn left to the Lifeflower room and fight for PoisonBeams MysTech (Green, Great). Also grab a petal while you're here. Now head back out.
Head back to Platform 2, get on the shuttle, and return to Sender Station.
 Sender Station, Take 3
If you gave Wanda her bracelet, stop by Gate 3 to give Frankie her note.
Talk to Salsa again, pick up Rho and Democratus, and head for the Routubes.
Along the way, stop into the Sendormitory. Use Democratus' worldskill to tractor in the Bag o' Glodents, and have Rho talk to the scientist who gave you his ticket for the Cubic Impactor (Rho, Good, ranged).
At the busted panel, Analyze the plans on the chest and fix the panel.
 Lower Routubes
After the next fight, watch for the Batt. After the next fight, there's another Batt.
At the sign for the pumping station, head left and pick the lock.
 Sender Station Underworks
When you come out into a larger room with a guy standing down below, walk past the first light grey vertical girder and look across the room and a little down. Eventually a Red Bipidri will appear. Take its picture.
Grab the HealGrease Complete.
When you come out below, talk to the Gorian and accept his recipe.
Continue on and meet the MugMugs. The one on the right wants moss. Give him the Sunder Moss and Hive Moss for a Circlet of Safety (prot. all) and Resonance Crystal (Democratus, Good, ranged). The one on the left wants the El Puno Toy he dropped; tractor it in and return it to him for a TACO.
As you head back, grab the HealGrease Complete at the bottom of the ramp.
Go back to the Pumping Station sign and head on into the
 Red Light District
There's $100 lying by the dead body on the left.
Talk to the guy by the Brebulan for a lead. Head upstairs to Mistress Marina's and talk to the guy on the right. Now head over to:
Head right and talk to Kevester Kopp. He asks you for a favor.
OK, back out and over to the:
Pick a girl and a "treatment", and follow her to her room. When you get there, change your mind and go break into room 2. Grab the TACO and get the ring from the Bipidri on the bed.
Take the ring back to Kevester, and then go to:
 Cold Sweat Sex Machine
Give the Gorian recipe to the Brebulan at the back for $275. Grab the HealGreases from the Male and Other bathrooms, then talk to the bartender for the Field Transduction Module.
On your way out of the Red Light District, stop into Tubby's Grease Shack (the shop with the "Booze 'n' Condoms" sign). On the right end of the shelf behind the bar is a TACO. Buy it for $50.
Also stop into Pile o' Hunks. Grab the HealGrease Complete from the DJ booth. Then talk to the guy in the back corner to do a Man-Dance!
The moves are: LLLL LRLR RRRL RRLR RLLR LRRL
If you did a perfect job, talk to the guy again for a Stargent Turboblaster (Boots, Good, ranged).
Head back to the Common Area. Hmm, it's night out. There's now a Lifeflower to the right of the door to the Routubes. Pick a petal every time you go by. Go to the Lounge.
Now you're just controlling PAL.
Talk to the wandering PAX guard for an OX APE cartridge. Grab another petal.
If you're up for a challenge, take PAL to the Red Light District. The fights are a lot harder when you're alone. Use Freezo in the first fight, and PsyPull in later ones. Equip the Mysteria Gold Shieldcell, the Rapid Wristlet, and Valesta's Bracelet.
The fight with the Gorian Drug Runners is hard, but you should be able to win it by going PsyPull, PsyPull, HealGrease Complete, PsyPull, PsyPull. At that point one or two of them should be dead, and it gets easier.
In the Red Light District, talk to Joey Twink, the robot wandering around, for the Ballotine Crazyclaw (PAL, Good, melee).
Now head for the museum. Hack your way in, go into the closet to the right, and then into the air ducts.
From the beginning of the puzzle, head right, up and right. Hack the port. Drop back down to the starting position. This time, go left, down and left. Hack the port. From here, go left, straight, right and up. Hack the port. Go around to the TimeMinder, and you're through.
In the display room, walk around to the back and hack the port. Walk across the cleaning robot and out.
Head back up the ramps outside, and practice Stiletto's Throw Loonie skill. Grab the HGC and another petal, then head back to the lounge to get Boots.
 Anachronox, Take 3
Pick up PAL and Rho for a trip to Anachronox. But first, take Rho into the GDP and talk to the scientist in love to get Master Analyze.
Have PAL talk to Zordo for a Battlebot Conduit Upgrade (Transfer NRG).
Visit Mardoman again. He sends you to Joe's Diner, near Anachronox Tours. Go there and talk to the guy by the menu for some tickets. Head for the Tours building.
Have PAL talk to the robot in Anachronox Tours again for Master Comp Talk. Head for the OneGate shuttle, to:
 OneGate Station
Before leaving the platform, go down the ramp by the Exit door. Below the platform is a vendor, Parvenute. Also, if you go off the path to the left you can find a Bloodstone, but you can't pick it up yet.
Just past the parked cars, look for a TACO on the left.
Photograph all the PAX guards. Just before the fourth (and last) one, grab the Three-Function Host. Return to Anachronox Tours.
On your way out, stop at the place where you photographed the speeder. Analyze the computer there, and then hack the dataport. A button appears across the road, but you can't do anything with it now.
Now take the photos back to Mardoman for FreezeCubist MysTech (Cyan, Great). Or you can wait until later in the game; that way, you keep the OneGate tickets, so you will be able to get the Bloodstone sooner.
Head back to Sender Station. Talk to the TACO guy for a Cordicom Personal Shieldcell.
Now grab Grumpos and someone else for the trip to Hephaestus. It doesn't matter much who you take. There's stuff for each of them to do on Hephaestus:
- Stiletto can get her Good weapon, which you can buy for $2000 later.
- Rho can get a new skill, which you can buy for $500 later.
- Democratus can tractor in a Cobalt Crawler and some duplicate MysTech.
- PAL can get some nice equipment if you're willing to leave your computer alone for hours at a time.
FYI, you will have to take Democratus on the next quest after Hephaestus. And Rho and PAL will need to come back to Hephaestus later in the game.
