Second Week's Offerings

This week’s offerings:

No job offers this week from any of your contacts. However, you’ve been given a few bits of information, and if you wish to act on any of them, it’s up to you.

The chip: Through skill, some work and his luck, everyone’s favorite coked-up pirate hacker managed to decrypt the data taken from the facility. AZ was busy doing destructive testing on Technomancer abilities, testing their limits and ways in which to removes those abilities permanently. While most of the research is already available with just a moment’s querying through some of the more black data havens of the Matrix, a few bits of prime information come to the top. One of the things they stumbled upon was a chemical that could permanently strip any magical ability from the subject, be it Resonance or Magic. The formula has been included in the file (and, for your reference, it includes such savory things as an HMHVV-infected host being rendered down while still living, the remains of living invader-spirit hosts, and a few synthesized drugs, manufactured by AZ).

One of the Vory has something for Yevgeney: “Hey, boss, one of the boys and I found out about a shipment of immigrants being shipped in. Bunch of kids that’re being smuggled in, though we don’t know what for. It’s some independent work, so I’m thinking we might show these guys who they’re dealing with and what they’re doing on our turf!”

Ralph’s bartender: “Hey, man. Had a spirit in here yesterday. Yeah, a spirit. No idea what for, it’s not like we serve anything here for ‘em. Anyways, was asking for a private dick to look into a case about a missing sibling or somebody’s brother or something. Feel like doing a job?”

SEATTLE POST TIMES

For all the news you need to get.

Terrorist attack!

In North Seattle today there was a reported explosion, and a group, Jaguar Liberation, has claimed responsibility. The company that was attacked suffered only minimal casualties, though at the time of this reporting it has come to us that Dalia Scintil and Mark Smith were both killed in the attack. We offer our condolences to those who survive them.

Ork Civil Rights Leader Assassinated!

Earlier today, Ork civil rights leader Johann Gunther was killed today in Seattle, apparently on his way to a clandestine meeting with civil authorities to help smooth out some of the current wrinkles in what some people are calling “The Ork Problem.”

“The Underground is just crawling with them, living in squalor down there. My granny used to tell me about when the Underground was a fine thing to visit, but now it’s just full of orks squatting. When’re we going to deal with this problem in our city, that’s what I want to know!”

-Maurice Walters, Sanitation Worker

Fire in SODO

A fire broke out after what was apparently a smash and grab style robbery on Integrated Components, Inc, on SODO. While the business is insured, the contract they had recently landed with Ares- kept on the secret until now- has fallen through.

Man Eats Himself to Death!

A man- Justin Pierce- somehow ate himself to death in a Taco Shack in northern Seattle today. According to Witnesses, he came in about 3pm and started stuffing food into himself. Though plenty of people remember him eating, nobody thought to stop him.

“Look, man, we get trolls in here with cybergear up the wazoo, and they eat like it’s going out of style, so lay off, okay? I thought- everybody thought the guy knew what he was doing!”

-Kevin Jan, Taco Shack employee

Witnesses reported that Mr. Pierce fell over, comatose, at about 5pm. Ambulances were dispatched, and found that Mr. Pierce was suffering from a burst stomach. Despite the prompt and timely help in the matter, Mr. Pierce died en route to the hospital, and police are investigating the matter.

First Offerings
In which the first choices are made

So, runners, looking for work? Your fixers have three jobs in the offering, but you can only take one of them for short notice.

Aleph: “Greetings! My favorite guys! Hey, listen, I’ve got a Johnson, and boy, is he huge! You’ll want to see this Johnson, I’m sure of it! If you’ve got the time, this guy’s got a job for you—I got some word out of him about picking up and transporting some sensitive data. He’ll meet you at il Fomaggio out in Bellevue.”

Seraph: “I trust that you are well? I’ve a client that has the need of the specialized services that your group may be able to provide. The client wishes to meet with you at Genki Kobe steakhouse downtown. It seems to be some kind of bodyguard work.”

Johann: “Hey, guys, listen, I’ve got a friend down here who’s looking for a group to help him out with a little problem. He’s got a friend who’s coming into town and needs a hand moving his luggage, y’know what I mean? You know the usual place where I set up the jobs.”

I’ll get your pick on Saturday.

Edited: Saturday, June 12th:

Seraph: Excellent. I’ll pass on the word to this particular client that you will be willing to meet with him.
