Everybody on the list knows that Easy was due to meet Twitch, assuming
that Easy shared that information with every living soul around. It was
shared with a few, that's for sure. However, there seems to be a lot of
"player knowledge" and asssumption coming to the fore here. People who
were not connected know that Twitch killed Easy. People who weren't
even in the city know that Twitch killed Easy. I'm not too happy about
that. I'd like to know how they know.
I appreciate that Easy is a popular character. Well, too bad. What a
shame. Assumptions are very dangerous things to have. You people want
to kill Twitch, fine, do so. But think about it first. You are all
Shadowrunners - except for the corporate types of course. It would make
sense to me that it would be more advisable for the characters to
consider their own fate rather than threaten that of another. Easy
lived a dangerous life, she has been, thanks to Paul, very lucky in that
life. Far more than another similar person would have been. Easy died,
rather easily neh? She fell into a trap that could catch anybody. Who
else could be killed as well? Anybody. The player might not like it,
but everybody is in danger. Do not assume that because Twitch is a new
character, and I have no concern over having my characters killed, that
I will allow him to simply die, whether or not he accepts Griffyn's
challenge. Whether or not he walks into the sights of a sniper, on some
bogus job. It is my choice whether he dies. Until I agree, there is
nothing anybody can do, nes pa? <g>
Please consider before the entire list decides "Oh twitch has to die,
because he killed Easy." The evidence is circumstantial, there is no
proof, and the player knowledge sneaking into the Shadowtk posts, is
getting - annoying. Neither he, nor anybody else has confirmed that
Twitch created the bomb, nobody has any proof that he was there. Nobody
has any proof that he even has the ability. Unfortunately Paul wrote
the post a little early, and used a method Twitch is not very well known
for. You see, he likes souvenirs.
If anyone is privvy to Private communications between Nakamura and
Twitch, would they please like to explain the method used to tap into
the four posts that were made between them.
Regardless of all the above. It may even be that Twitch is in cahoots
with Easy, a bomb in a van, a big bomb... And he's not hiding, knowing
that a massive portion of the Seattle shadow community is out to "get"
him. Hmmm.... puzzling that?
Understand one thing. Twitch is not another Thunda. He's a man doing
work. Easy was work, a contract. And you can't tell me that nobody
else hasn't done anything like this.
Wanna put a contract on Twitch's head. OK, do it. Hunt him down, and
kill him like a dog, I could, quite honestly care less. But prepare to
get hurt. He's not going to go quietly, or nicely. And if there's one
thing Twitch does well, it's kill. He's had lots of practice, and has
spent his entire life skipping the law, and other unpleasantness on the
For anybody that's interested, you can meet Twitch in more detail at
