So as the bullets are flying I thought I would take a little time to update my logs. Currently we are working for some weird little casino owner who thinks old timey mysticism is a cool gimmick. (You would think he would at least paint his cyber hand like wood or something then.)
But anyhow when last we left we had taken a ‘job’ for this shady dude to carry a car for 3LY and he was going to pay us big bucks. Sounded two easy to be true, I figured he was gonna steal it from us, claim the insurance, and then make us pay for it, thus getting triple value from the vehicle. But it turns out he was just smuggling some sick pervy stuff in a computer in the car. Whatever!
So anyhow we get to this old space station called Shadowport (you would think they wouldn’t advertise that it was a seedy criminal hive of scum so blatantly in the name of the place, but there you go…) to deliver the package. I had determined there was more computer in the car than it needed but I didn’t even want to take this job so what do I care right?
_to be continued once I have read up more on cyberspace and time within the computer.
GM: There’ isn’t much, that’s for sure! Anyway, I’m going to likely have to use some other source; probably Cyberpunk with some “updates”. If not that, then I’m looking at both Shadowrun or Alternity I guess. i’ll decide by next session and let everyone know then.
I have been looking online and they came out with a book called Hardware/Software: Take a walk on the cyber side. But I can’t find a digital copy anywhere. (well not one I can afford) And no info can be found about actual rules anywhere I look in the internet, guess that’s what happens when you play an old game that never was that popular.. The test of Shatterzone says a million times faster, I am going to assume a little less than that._
I guess we contacted the receiving party, and tried to get the car back from security, I stayed on the ship and worked on my ENVI-suit. After a couple hours the station alarms went off. My hand computer linked to the station comm system and found out it was due to some strange space phenomenon near the station. Everyone got to the ship during the ‘emergency’, but we were forced to wait in the station because the control room wasn’t answering comms.
While waiting Todd met some kid that told us to go meet someone for a job. We had nothing better to do and we couldn’t leave anyway so we went with him. He took us to a different section of the station. W had to use an elevator to quickly cross the open center of the station. Todd kinda freaked out and had to be put down to save us from a fatal elevator accident. He probably just has a massive headache though.
We got to the gambling hall and saw it was made up all ancient and pre-science looking. We sat at a table and on of those sexy Kestarians came up to take our order. She seemed to think I was some kind of child. She had great boobs but seemed pretty stupid, I could handle anything she had, like those boobs. When she brought the drinks and got my order wrong I left. If a place doesn’t want to give me any respect I got no time for them.
While heading back to the ship I found a homeless guy having a sip himself. I sat down with him and we discussed how judgmental some people are. We shared the bottle and he seemed like a pretty good guy. It took a few tries but I got the hang of his brand of fire water. That is about when Todd showed up.
He wanted me to go back and give the gambling hall another chance. We came to terms and I agreed. He was going to get me a date with the waitress and I would show her I was old enough … ya by having manly sex with her.
I went back to the tavern and got the info that we were going to provide extra security for the casino during some kind of tournament. Sure, doesn’t sound too hard. We traveled to the ship, except Todd (I think he didn’t want to deal with the elevator in space), to get some gear.
When we arrived back at the casino (called shiny rat or whatnot,) and we sat down. The bimbo offered us some drinks but didn’t talk to me, I was gonna head back to the ship when an even hotter Kestarian Kestarian Chick came over and asked me if I wanted to get a drink with her. She couldn’t even hide how much she wanted me so we got a table. After a bit she took me to the room I had been furnished with for the job and I fucked her all night. It was awesome, she totally couldn’t control herself and we had a lot of sex. She is the best woman I ever knew. I think she has got it for me bad. I should get her something nice to remind her of our first romantic night together. She said I was the best ever.
So that’s pretty awesome, I have a serious girlfriend and she is hotter than everyone else on the station, they are probably all jealous.
I was up early after only a couple hours sleep, but I was so awesome I was totally awake. Nobody else was up yet, so I went over some of the tech systems of the casino. I looked over the computers, got some breakfast and looked over the gaming tables. I set up shop in the security office. When cappy woke up I went down and told him how great the day was.
So now I am back in the security office interfaced with their security network. They don’t have any automated gun turrets or offensive security devices. but the cameras keep a good eye on things.
That’s how I noticed the man who dropped some kind of electrified barrier across the front door. That was followed by four more individuals pulling out weapons and threatening the patrons. That all happened about seven seconds ago, I informed the security detail and my team and now there are two live machine gun wielding assailants and the guy in black who triggered the electro barrier.
SO I should get back to turning the lights off and focusing on the bad guys, stupid lighting system has redundant backups I have to disable, and I can only turn them off as fast as they can physically be manipulated. So while waiting for the lights I thought I would update my log. We will see if any medical assistance is required for my team. So far so good. Go get em!
