Runners

Summary

Part 1

A grey day. The team met up a the Blue Moon to meet with Xe Wia Shou, a Johnson who did his best to pretend that we were old friends. He seemed worried that automated surveillance might pick up on key phrases, so we played along. At the meet was Relic, Trainwreck and Smogg. The job was to attend a conference at Mars and sort out some diplomacy. Aggressive negotiations?.

The team accepted and were given a data chip with details. With chip in hand the team went a concert with a lot of noise. DJ Knife-ear was playing. It was a trash place, but it worked. More details about the job. The team was actually to work with "The Resistance" on Mars in order to blow up the Ares command space station! With pay in the millions. The runners were given fake SINs from Papertrail Security Consultants, and Ares subsidiary used when employing deniable assets. The cover was an Ares contract for security and anti-terrorism on the space station.

Trainwreck contacts the Mafia, and gets the team set up with Red Horizon SINs on very short notice. The plan is to have a backup identity on Mars. The cost for this, is a hit on Mars. Some guy needs to die. In addition Trainwreck also get the deck and tools needed to pass off as the team decker.

Smogg Does some digital checks on Papertrail Security Consultants, manifests and related SINs. Everything seems to be in order, both at the port and the shuttle. Best guess is that it will all check out. One problem through. The fake Papertrail Security Consultants SINs have been attached with the wrong licenses. This may be a problem at the check-in. It will certainly be something we need to work around at Mars.

Also Smogg invited Ed along to Mars. Ed had always dreamed of visiting Mars, so this was a huge thing for him. He went to hang out in Smogg's cyberdeck.

Part 2

The team passed through security. Some illegal items were smuggled through, but with a bit of tampering and a lot of concealment, the team was able to smuggle in some weapons and drugs. Aboard the AMMS Alberto, the team were each installed in business class cabins. The ship featured massive concealed surveillance so the team tried to act natural and blend in. Smogg got the team invited to dinner with Lynette and Jim. Sylvester (AKA Smogg) got to befriend them and talked a good deal about hunting and concerts. Relic engaged a suspicious individual spying on the table. He turned out to be a humanis fanatic. Relic got him to mind his own business though.

Weeks went by until a night where the nightly assassins came for the team, planning to kill Smogg first. Trainwreck was awoken by a persona in an old spacesuit and alerted to the ambush. Trainwreck engaged the assassins on the corridor outside the cabins, and a violent fight began. Relic soon woke up and joined in. Despite one of the assassins being heavely augmented featuring a build in SMG with explosive rounds, Relic and Trainwreck managed to take out the nightly assailants. Smogg finally woke up and appeared in the doorway wearing his pyjamas, hat and soft slippers to discover the hallway covered in blood, bits of flesh, lots of metal parts, a whole lot of bullet holes and a single fist hole in the wall.

Part 3

There is time for some quick investigation before security arrives. Smogg cuts open the "Dave"s cyberskull, and download all his files. Smogg furthermore discover that Dave has an implanted cranial bomb. Smogg disarms it to the best of his knowledge. The team is arrested and goes through interrogation. While waiting Smogg goes through daves files at discover him to have several layes of undercover identities. Information that is used during the interrogation to put him in bad light and clear the team. The team is released but from here things goes pretty fast. An EMP bomb explodes. During the transport of the dead Dave, he wakes up and attacks the team, glowing eyes and crazy. Dave is quite powerful and leaves a resonance signature level 8. He hacks Relic's arm though skinlink and she has to chop it off. Runners and Security combine effort and eventually take down Dave again. As Smogg warns about an incoming spaceship, the sound of a spaceship docking to the AMMS Alberto can be heard.

Part 4

It turns out Alberto is about to be boarded by Ares Special Forces. Smogg intercepts communication. They are looking to lock down an NAV outbreak. On second though, the pull back to blow up Alberto. Team decide to eject the corpse of the cyberzombie. There is a bit of struggle with chief of security but the body is ejected. In space it comes to life AGAIN and engage special forces. The team tries to arm up and assist remotely keeping the pressure on "Dave", the zombie. Negotiations with the Ares cutter fails, and the team adjust plans. Using a stealth suit Smogg will space-sneak to the cutter and disable sensors so Trainwreck and Relic can make it over. Smogg, realize he wont be able to stealth with his runner gear, so he pass the bag to the team to bring with them. A nerve wrecking plan unfolds involving sneaking through space, hacking sensors, disrupting both engines and later a laser turret. The team is finally together on the cutter and using manual overrides, Trainwreck and Relic moves into the ship and quickly overpowers the crew. What a mess. Smogg fills in Relic and Trainwreck on past encounters with Adam Bell. Relic seems to be infested. Now what?

Part 5

After the initial stages of securing the Syntambioco and it's crew, the team called back Incursion 1 and had him taken prisoner. This was followed by the team launching nukes at the AMMS Alberto, destroying the ship and the cyberzombie. A drastic measure that no one enjoyed taking. It did however tie up loose ends and help limit the scope to resolve.

Smogg with the help of Ed, Relic and the sprites Rocco and Coldspell managed to subdue the Syntambioco AI. Unfortunately it was too crippled for Smogg to gain control over it, and Ed was not comfortable retrieving it's code by eating it. Smogg ended up eating the dead AI. It was a somewhat disturbing experience. Meanwhile everyone else seemed to have flashback relating to being eaten by ghouls.

While Smogg started working on getting control of the host itself, Relic stealthed into the locked room where the resonance stream came from. Here she found a female human in cryo stasis. Relic went ahead and activated the wake-up procedure and did her best to help the lady recover. The subject seemed confused and distressed learning the current date. She soon insisted on meeting the rest of the group.

Part 7

The team gets to meet Dr. Grey. The frozen lady. She was frozen down some time around 2055. Back then her daughter was deadly sick, and Dr. Grey expected her to be dead. Naturally she really want's to get on the Matrix to check, but so far the team has prevented this in order not to compromise the ship. The team secured the crew. The marine was restrained and lock up in a closet size compartment. The rest of the crew were gradually persuaded to assist keeping the ship flying, the pilot the most eager to help, hoping to secure her escape. On a side note Ed has been really unhappy due to his dead friend AI, and is spending a good deal of time listening to heavy metal in Smogg's cyberdeck. Smogg got in touch with Renola Forszetina and secured very well designed flight plans to navigate to a mining facility near Mars. Following the flighplan, working the ship's systems and keeping the crew committed, the team managed to make a cloaked escape with the Ares Military ship and reach the Martian mining station. Disembarking the ship, the team meets and strange looking man. It seems the team will need to do some important negotiation.

Poetry

WITNESS! - The five fold path

How could ephemeral beings such as us accept such a permanence? ~the day is not today~

The Gods' chagrin will be revealed when the mortals act and overthrow the titans in a homegrown Götterdämmerung, and how glorious  a balefire it will make ~this event is one of many that we have seen and will see~

Sweetlings, have you ever experienced a crossroad with their decision trees and tricksy pacts? The devils who live in the cracks  of words will tempt you, and you will need to tempt them back ~for you have the most succulent fruit of all; free will~

Has your wife left with the dog and truck like an [country western song]? Or does that only happen in the movies. Let us fill  your husk visage with our wisdom ~it flows so sweet, taste and see~

Is it time to move on, oh sweetling ours? Come, we will usher you onto the next world like the ferrymen chiron, though our smile  will be much less skeletal. ~the radiance of the nextlife awaits~

A gleaming city

 A gleaming city sprawls far 'neath the sky.
 All eggs in one basket, ignoring luck.
 For those outside, distant dream on high
 A nation without papers. Just like you. 
 
 See, even the poor have over their heads
 plasecrete and glass: save your lives every day.
 Vast tunnels and rooms for lost feet to tread
 give us strongholds immune to the man. 
 
 Small price to pay, just costing nature's fields.
 But fields have no use when they can't bear fruit.
 And skies with air you can't breathe serve no point! 
 
 Its safe walls keep the wars at arms length too,
 while inside violence hides its fascade.
 Cloaked freedom, false flag waved to rally the crowd;
 still choice is held blessed even when it's not true. 
 
 A hive, with people and all of their stuff
 still sings of home when the work year is done.
 Magnificent construction. Protect it.
 Streets 'neath a dome never face toxic snow.

I have the power

 "I think you'll find that,
 I have the power to enforce my demands"
 Those were great words you spat
 All across mighty virtual lands!
 
 Adam, when you were crossed in the Amazon.
 You never lacked respect at the base
 Still you went on rampage like a Gigamon
 To settle with murder just in case.
 
 Up in space you had great authority
 And there is no doubt that people would listen
 Yet you killed with your nanite majority
 There is no need to put subjects in prison.
 
 To runners "Destroy the station" you demand
 It is not your fault you don't have a body
 Now the wrong installation is toast at their hand
 Certainly it was not you being sloppy.
 
 I do feel sad that you abandoned your lover,
 and I am sorry we lost your ring of power.
 Mighty Bell it is "very odd" that none follows order
 When you are such a handsome nano hoarder
