(>) Well folks, I decided to compile a file for those of you who are
thinking about paying us a visit here in Israel, so enjoy! <disp. grin> Also
helped me with some of the information gathering and compiling is a friend
of mine, Zapper.
(>) To those of you who don't know him already, Nailer is a matrix legend in
his country, and a proud member of shadowland. Please note that any info in
here is most likely to be true, since if it's online in Israel, Nailer can

(>) Intersting to note that most of the hermetics are practitioners

from god), and that means that their view of astral space is diffrent
from that of new age hermetics. (It has something to do with the Garden
In 2004 Libya unleashed a chimical weapons attack against Israel. The
Israelis responded with a nuclear strike that destroyed half of Libya's
cities, and Libya hasn't fought Israel since. In 2008 Syria, Jordan,
Palastine, and Lebanon open a joined war against israel. It becomes clear
that peace will not be possible without a great loss of land. Due to this
war, Israel conquers all of Lebanon, about 1/2 of Jordan, and more of the
Golan Heights. In the Oslo 4 agreements, reached on 2012, all of Palastine
is moved to northern Lebanon. During the same time, the Mosad terminates
many heads of terorist organization, a move that causes all of the terorist
organizations to unite into one, called the Lohamei Allah, or Wariors of
God, based in New Palastine. The WOG is powered by Iran, Syria, and verious
Neo-Nazis and Antisematic groups from all over the world. The WOG still
exists in 2057, altough many attempts were made to destroy it. In 2016 Prime
Minister Chaim Schonl was assassinated, and the assassin was killed in
During the Awakening, Israel was lightly affected, and has not suffered any
great losses. Israel adopted to Goblinization reletivly easily, as Israelies
are used to have diffrent people with them, since Israel has always been a
country of mixed cultures. Only few magicians appeared, mostly became
hermetic casters. Srafim (6 armed flying reptiles) and verious other
Biblical creatures have apeared during the Awakening, but have not created a
major threat, and even helped people in some cases.
Israel of the 2050's:
Today Israel still creates High-Tech weponry, and newer and improved
versions of verious older Israeli weapons, such as Uzi III SMG, Galil II
Assault Rifle, Desert Eagle III Pistol, and others. They also make excelent
drones and unmaned aircrafts, as well as improved aircrafts. The Israely
Airforce is considered one of the best in the world (Qualty-wise, not
Quantety-wise), as well as the Mosad (Israeli CIA). The IDF has 2 special
forces: Matrix and Magic, aka M&M, which are distributed amongst the other
forces. Matrix is responsible for country-wide Matrix securty.
(>) As well as decking into enemy county's Matrix systems and messing things
Magic is responsible for magical assistance, and are scattred throughout
every unit, helping both in pre-combat, combat, and after combat.
(>) Groups from the M&M are occasionally sent to UCSA and CAS for advanced
(>) Actually, the advenced training stuff is just to keep good political
relations between us and the UCAS and CAS. The REAL advenced training is
done in the high security facility in the Negev, and I talk from experience
when I say that the security there is so tight, that not even a fly can get
As far as political ties go, Israel is allyed with UCSA, CAS, England, some
NAN countries, the Saudi Caliphate, the Scandivaian Federation, and verious
City-States throughout the world. It's major enemies are Iran, Syria,
Palastine, and verious other City-States. Israel has a representative on the
Security board of the UN. As far as politics go, Israel is ruled by the only
democratic goverment in the middle east.
Israel uses a similar system to the Tirs when it comes to the megacorps.
[rules are in the Tir book] Also corps can make contracts with the
government for better terms, for example Fuchi made a contract with the
government to provide it with computers, and in exchange they have recived a
tax deduction of 10%. [GM Note: feel free to make up any others.]
Eilat is a free trade zone, which means there is no sales tax there.
For legalety codes, use 2 levels higher then in the book. If that takes it
above the highest legalety code, then it's illigal.
All magic users need to register with the IMA, Israeli Magic Association.
Locals are usually registered by their family as soon as the ability is
discovered, and outsiders need to register upon arrival. After the
registeration area at the entry point, everyone is astrally scaned and those
that are detected as magic users and have not registered are automaticlly
exiled from Israel for 3 years. If the magic user has a criminal record or
no SIN, he is exiled for 5 years. This is to prevent terorist mages from
(>) And that's if you're lucky, The first thing they do when they detect you
is to detain you for questioning, and if they don't like your answers then
it might be some time before you see the outside world again.
Israel has a closed matrix network, Which means that there are a limited
number of connection points between the Israeli matrix and the outside
matrix, all of them choke points with a rating of 20-red [per VRII]. This
will probobly kill any decker if he tries to deck past it. There IS black
ICE at these choke points.
(>) Luckly for you, I maintain a link to the outer matrix which isn't loaded
with ICE. Only problem is you will have to prove you are worthy of using it
by finding it. Once you do, you will face a very strong black ICE, which
would most likely kill you unless I personally give you the entry code. The
code changes every 24 hours, so you better hurry once you have it.
* The runners are hired by the goverment to terminate WOG leaders.
* The runners are hired by the opposition to overthrow the goverment.
* The runners are recruited by the IDF for special operations (deckers and
mages- for M&M)
* The runners are hired by the Mosad as special agents.
