Prodigal Spawn is an NPC in Hellpoint. Prodigal Spawn is a mysterious NPC that will offer you to conjure a dark ritual over the station.

Prodigal Spawn - Information

  • You'll first be able to meet this NPC in the Arisen Dominion area (See Prodigal Spawn - Locations for more detailed instructions).
  • When meeting him first, he will reference Nemundis, referring to him as God of the Outer Consciousness. Further he will ask your opinion on AI. If inquiring about the Author, he will tell you, that the Author is the mass AI and that he would have to kill you now that you know this if everybody wasn't dead soon anyway.

 

 

  • He will now move to Alma Mater. He will be standing on the platform overlooking the black hole, directly opposite the elevator that leads to Uthos the Ashen Born. Talk to him and he will ask you to craft the Heir of Chaos.

 

 

  • Once you have the Heir of Chaos speak to him. Give him the Heir of Chaos, and he will tell you that you are already late. He will perform a ritual and disappear. This will complete his quest line.
  • By completing his Quest line, you'll be able to acquire the Complete True Ending, by defeating him alongside Sentient in the final battle.

Prodigal Spawn - Locations

 

  • You'll first encounter this NPC in the Arisen Dominion area ; there are several routes by which you can reach him, this is but one of them.
    • (The following instructions assume that you have already stabilized the Arisen Dominion - Tram Station breach. If that is not the case, see Antigravity Module for more detailed instructions.)
    • Starting from the Arisen Dominion - Tram Station breach : exit the Tram Station ; after a running jump, follow the only available path, until you arrive at a crossroad, where you can either continue forward, or go to the left, and enter the building.
    • Continue forward, and just follow the path, until it seems to come to an end. Then, use the platforms of gradually increasing heights to climb the side of the pyramid.
    • There is a brief interlude, where you just have to go along a very narrow path (No sudden moves, you don't have much margin for error) ; and soon enough, you'll be back to climbing, with five more small platforms, before you can reach a much safer "floor", per say.
    • Once you're up there, take a moment to observe your surroundings. Right ahead of you, at a distance, you can see a triangular stained glass (This is the spot in which you'll encounter Tribal for the fourth time, if you're following this NPC's questline). Forward, and to the left, there are six tables, surrounded by two "chairs" each (which look quite uncomfortable...) ; and behind you, to the right, there's a path leading into uncharted territory.
    • For now, head forward, and to the left, in the direction of the short staircase that you can see, past the tables and chairs.
    • Go up the stairs ; head in a diagonal, forward, and to the right ; then, go down the stairs.
    • WARNING. As you go further, you'll get "ambushed" (At this point, the novelty is long gone...) by 4x Crawling Arisen at the same time.
    • Once you've gotten rid of them, exit this room by going through the doorway with light blue lighting.
    • Pass the threshold, and just go straight ahead, until you reach another similar doorway.
    • This is the room in which you will find the Prodigal Spawn ; forward, and to the right, you can also see an Universal Printer ; and forward, and to the left, the upper part of a mag-lift (If you go down, you'll be able to open at least one relatively useful shorcut).
    • (Alternatively, there is a known bug where the Prodigal Spawn isn't present in this room ; don't worry, you just have to continue a bit further, in the same direction, and you'll find him doing his daily cardio routine, by running in circles on a staircase.)

Prodigal Spawn - Notes & Tips

  • There may be a bug where Prodigal Spawn lacks the purple highlights on his armor.
  • There may also be a separate bug, where he is running in circles on a staircase near his intended location.
  • Interestingly, Prodigal Spawn is featured in the icon of the Shattered Mirror achievement, without the purple highlights on his armor.

Dialogue

Initiate Enjoying your little tour?
At least someone here hasn't completely lost hope.
It's commendable... and ultimately pointless.
Talk (again) Ha ha ha!
O great Nemundis, God of the Outer Consciousness!
Can we only imagine the knowledge of a thousand worlds?
Yes, the Ministry did summon Him. And He heeded its call.
Truly, nothing is forbidden now.
Talk (again) You're a stubborn little one, aren't you?
Fine, tell me this
What do you think about artificial intelligence?
Look around. No one can hear us. This is a safe space, so speak your mind.
What do you think about artificial intelligence?
Answer: Is it the Author? Yes, the Author is the mass AI.
It's an absolute beauty, but even less impressive than our capacity to keep it hidden.
Now, the only reason I didn't kill you after telling you this is because we're all going to die soon anyway.
So why not entertain each other in the meantime, for whatever it's worth?
We have great hopes for you, Spawn, so you shouldn't waste time.
See you around.
Answer: Isn't that rather frowned upon? ??
Answer: It would take its rightful place as God.

Precisely!
I see you've read our book.
I knew you wouldn't be able to resist the truth. I could see it in your eyes.
This is what the order of the Prying Eye is all about.

-- You have gained knowledge about the Order of the Prying Eye

We have great hopes for you, Spawn, so you shouldn't waste time.
See you around.

Answer: ... Heh heh... I can see this is all going right over your head.
Or is it?
What's going on behind those dark eyes?
There is rage brewing. You compensate in brawn for what you lack in brain.
Well, keep going, Spawn. See where your feet take you.
We have great hopes for you, Spawn, so you shouldn't waste time.
See you around.
Talk (again) Not now. Let's see how much you're willing to endure first.

      killing him before talking to him in the Arisen Dominion will cause him to not drop the Bloodied Disciple set. Not sure about the full parameters of it, as he wasn't bugged on the stairs this time (my 2nd run) and i didn't talk to him before killing him, he also didn't fight back so i'm not sure if that's another reason.

        I met this npc running around in a staircase and atacked him by accident. This is one of many bugs that were not fixed, yet they are releasing a DLC...

          I guess the quest can be quite bugged: i couldn't find him in Arisen Domination, nor in Port Issoudun after killing Nemundis. Surprisingly, the closed door under the tram was open, even when he wasn't there. I could get the recipe for the heir, and finally the spawn showed up at the ritual site (Alma Mater, throne room, then stairs opposite to elevator for the ashborn god. The first time he bugged and couldn't finish the ritual, i backported to the last breach and went there again, could say the same line that i got the heir and at last the quest was finished. So there is hope when you can't find him before.

            When meeting him for the first time I found him walking in circles on the stairs with the celestial beast and the congregator that leads to the room he is supposed to be in. It seems like sometimes he walks to his normal location starting from the balcony above the Grand Gallery breach, where you press the buttons to lower the magnetic lifts. I don't know if this is a bug or if he always makes this trip when you load into the area, but if you don't see him in his normal room he may be stuck somewhere in between there and the breach.

              After defeating Nemundis he was at the observatory where he gave me a foresight booster module. Then he was at port Issoudon

                I never found this guy in Arisen Dominion, but after beating the 3 main bosses he showed up in the Observatory (near the path to the Embassy). Afterwards he moved to the Port and I was able to continue the quest from there.

                  Glitch: it seems that if you exhaust his dialog at Port Issoudun before he is able to unlock the door, he won’t open it.

                    His achievement seem to be " Shattered Mirror " but doing his quest and killing him with the final boss doesn't complete it.
                    Someone got any idea ?
