The Story So Far………

The members of the Foundation/Soldiers of Light (need to work on that name guys – got a hint of cheddar to it!!) have gone about their business in Seattle over the last year, keeping a low profile. Media and other attention quickly drifted away from the charitable organisation as other more interesting things happened around the sprawl.

Then, one day near Christmas the Renraku Arcology went into shut-down, with reports of deaths and injuries to those in the mall at the time.

No one has been able to penetrate the Arcology via either the matrix, astral space or physically.

Several weeks into the shut-down the Corporation took the step of hiring shadowrunners to try to penetrate the pyramid.
Jericho had installed one of his versions of HAL on his system at home. A probe by HAL into the arcology alerted certain individuals to his existence. This prompted a visit from some ‘below the radar’ types and before he knew it Jericho was being press-ganged into the team amassed to assault the SCIRE (another term for the Arcology – I’m sure Arcanus can explain the acronym).

Jericho and Pie went in separate from the others and managed to enter undetected. They broadcast images of a family that had been locked inside their own apartment and had starved to death.

Inside they encountered Renraku security but they all appeared to be under some sort of influence. Their eyes had also been swapped out for blue cyber-eyes.

After a number of minor encounters they were nearly killed by what was at first an unknown enemy. Afterwards they detected tiny flying drones that had injected them with harmful nanites.

With that in mind and on the verge of collapse the two made their way to the SCIRE’s hospital. There they encountered more drone-like people, guards with blue eyes and others with green cyber-eyes.
The enemy were closing in and after discovering one of the SCIRE’s original inhabitants about to go through the process of eye replacement, they rescued him and decided to escape from the building.
This culminated in a dramatic exit, captured by the multitude of news cameras surrounding the building, as the two slid down the side of the pyramid, their rescued survivor placed on a stylish sofa for that part of the journey!!!

After a debrief, Pie disappeared back into the shadows.
Jericho was paid a visit from a lawyer – who informed him that he had a nine year old son, by Stephanie Abdul.
This prompted him to immediately withdraw from taking part in any further shadowruns. His task was now to rehabilitate Steph (the mother of his child) despite her wishes and to hell with her husband too!!!

Nearly One Year Later…

Although their intelligence and understanding is a little better now, the military, who have cordoned off the SCIRE completely have not been able to make further entries into the Arc.
However small parts of the SCIRE’s matrix started to become active.
Black’s contact, 2XS and a group of his colleagues decided to try to access the SCIRE through one of these points.
They met with disaster.
A short while later a matrix agent belonging to Black found the partially destroyed node and the dismembered icons that were 2XS’s team.

Concerned for XS’s welfare Black and Drake have travelled back to Oakland.
There they discovered “XS’ parents had been massacred, his home in disarray, and XS in his couch still plugged in to the matrix.
On the monitor attached to his deck Cal and Drake saw that his friend was alive and fighting for his life, trapped in the matrix.
Unfortunalty his meat body was too weak to be unplugged.

Drake then discovered the killer robot type thing in the basement.

A fight ensued where Drake destroyed the creation.

Then the cops arrived and so did Doc Wagon.

To be continued…
