Another day in the shadows, another try at some Nuyen. Doesn’t always work - in fact most days it won’t. But that don’t mean you can give it up, walk away. You are too far gone now for a corp job, too accustomed to your “lifestyle” to take anything below it. You turned your back on that world long ago - or maybe it turned it’s back on you.
Con Artist, Thug, Hacker, Vigilante, Burn-out, Errand Girl, Adrenaline Junky or just plain old Junky - which one were you? Which one are you now?
It doesn’t matter what the year is, the story is always the same. The rich get more powerful and the stupid sink to the bottom. In between those layers is a world of shadows that leaves a lot of room for creativity… or violence.
Violence. Sometimes the Sprawl seems to exist on nothing but it or the sad cases where a hot spear of righteous anger was needed but didn’t happen. A friend of a friend caught a ricochet on their last run, or some deadbeat down the hall is sinking under their own weight into the filth, or that girl - always too young and never pretty enough - got dragged into it again with an empty expression on her face.
Today will be different. Today you will stay focused on the job and act in the professional manner the way it’s portrayed on the trids. Today you will do that one thing and no more, take it to the end and no further, and get paid and get home in one piece. If you only knew where home was …
This is a mysterious and violent story set in a Cyber Punk mashup of the Sprawl Series and a mana-less Shadowrun.
