>>>>>[ Early this morning around 0218, an explosion went off on the main
floor of the Carland Research Institute, a subsidiary of Mitsuhama inc. No
one was reported injured, and the Social Relations Executive of Mitsuhama
stated that the explosion was purely accidental caused by a gas leak. The
Exec declined all other comments. ]<<<<<

>>>>>[ Fragging agas leak! I'd sooner believe a dragon farted over at the
Mitsu lab. I know C-12 when I smell it. I don't know which of the SINless
pulled this hit or why, but I have my hunches. There was the matter of a
certain characteristic LandRover pulling away from the scene and an Ork
at the wheel of a computerized Ares Roadmaster. If you guys are out there,
know that I'm watching you and suspect who you are. Stay out of my district,
"chummers", or I'll bust you soon enough. ]<<<<<

Cut the idle threats, you got drek for a file on us. ]<<<<<

in another corner of the Matrix:

>>>>>[ Anyone know why Fuchi ordered the hit on Whisper? And what was up
with the drek hitting the fan at the Mitsu lab? Did Johnson botch the job
on the other simultaneous hit? I don't like it when things mess up my
plans -- especially counter productive things to our job caused by the same
Johnson. No hard feelings Johnson, just expect a higher price next time you
ask for a pro. The deal was agreed upon, and your cred was good. Next time
I'll have a couple stipulations of my own... ]<<<<<

- The Mechanic [13:04:41/11-14-52]

>>>>>[ I got the info you wanted Mechanic. Drop me a line at the Coffee
Shop, and we'll deal. ]<<<<<

>>>>>[ Hey team, watch your backs. I hear Hollywood Simsense has hired a
team to "pay us back" for that turn we paid them a while back. I'm not sure
who they are, but they're supposed to be good. Mitsu was none to taken with
us either. I'd be waiting for them to respond in turn as well. I say bring
'em on -- I'll give some false info into the bug I found at my place (sheesh,
talk about amateur night), and then put some of that C-12 I've got lying around
to use. I'll be hard to reach for a few days... Latez. ]<<<<<

>>>>>[ To the Fangs: beware, I sensed negative energies in the Astral
on my last "vacation". I fear it might be a disturbance caused by a certain
focus -- nicknamed "the Tiki". I will try to give you advance warning should
I sense else. Take heed. ]<<<<<

>>>>>[ Origato, my excellent associates. I have finally received the
you have requested. For an external micro-tooth transmitter/ear receiver set
equivalent to Commlink II: 20,000nuyen. Begging your pardon chummers, but
anything less would not be profitable, hai? After all, you have asked for
innovative wireless communication units, thus, an associate technician of mine
had to become creative. Meet me at the standard place @ 0200, tuesday, and
we can make the exchange. Once again, excellent doing business with you,
6-pack. Our paths will indeed cross again. ]<<<<<

- Benny Hanna, fixer+ [08:02:51/11-16-52]

>>>>>[ Ah, the tech is in. Good. Good. Then we can begin with the minor
cosmetic surgery implantation. For a dental implant that will be pressure
activated and an inner ear surface implant, my surgical fees will amount to
say: 20,000nuyen. After all, we want no accidental essence losses, and you're
getting only the best hands in the biz. Any clinic time used in recovering
will be free of charge -- I'd say 6 hours and you're on the streets. What can
I say? You guys have been great customers in the past... Drop by the clinic
one by one, surgery should take an hour, as I always have the possibility of
other patients of mine dropping by unexpectedly. Good day, gentlemen.

- Dr. Fineous "Fingers" O'Toole [09:15:13/11-16-52]

>>>>>[ Hey, have you guys seen the Mechanic around lately? I'll have to
his share for the gtech tomorrow, cuz I don't think he'll be anywhere where we
can get a hold of him if he don't want to be found. You guys better come up
with your own cred tho'. Hasta. ]<<<<<

>>>>>[ Where's the fragging Mechanic?!?!?! He owes me cred! I did the
boy a favor and picked up his tech, but he better not be geeked in some alley,
cuz Benny ain't offering refunds. If anyone sees him, tell him to drop me a
line. I can't be doing too many chummers these bloody favors. Drek! Oh, and
chummers, I scanned for bugs after the Mechanic's last message, and I picked
up 2 at my pad. Stock model II's by Fuchi, unless I miss my guess. Keep a
handle on it chummers... ]<<<<<

- Blacksuit [19:38:11/11-17-52]

>>>>>[ Ease up Suit, I've got the cred. You know I'm good for it. And
besides, to think that I'd get geeked by those pukin' amateurs is about as
real as life in a fraggin' BTL. Led 2 poor saps to pier 12, and geeked the
chrome-boy -- standard newbie sam looking for a quick-name. I did manage to
just knock out his partner (I probably shoulda geeked 'em both). After some
heavy interrogation, I got him to tell me that Hollywood is after our butts.
Word on the street is they've contracted the 'killer-star' hit team. I'll do
some more digging, but I'm layin' low for now. ]<<<<<

>>>>>[ Woah! Dere was dis huge hit dat went on down at da 4th street
warehouse. Word was dat Hollywood set up some boys to take out da 6-pack.
I tink dey had a mage or sumpin', cuz da hit team had some hostages and
had da place set up for an ambush or sumpin'. Next ting ya know, I's hears
bullets and grenades and stuff and I's comes running out of my house and
I's sees dis landrover pull away. I's don't knows whats went down, but I heard
6-pack took a layover outta town while tings cool off. I'd hate to see what
happened to dat hit squad. ]<<<<<

- Brutus 'T Gnash <14:44:31/11-23-52>

>>>>>[ Yeah, well I heard what went down as well. And 6-pack, I know it
was you. I found the bodies and the Mechanic's signature sniper rifle shells.
I also found traces of elemental dust, Drake. I had a mage pal of mine check
the background aura and there definitely was some hot stuff flying. Oh, we got
some blood samples off the floor too. Most matched up with the geeked squad,
but we got a line on Ork metagene traces in one sample. How're you feeling
Haus? I don't know who else was there, but I know that you guys were up to
no good. I just don't know why you chose to "execute" these poor SOBs in MY
part of town. I'm telling you, if I ever EVER see your sorry hides again,
they'll be nailed to my duraplak walls. ]<<<<<

- Cpt. Grissim, Lone Star Securities <15:10:11/11-23-52>

>>>>>[ Grissim, you never have a clue about what drek is hitting who's fan
do you? If you did, you'd know that Hollywood set up the hit on US. If you
did, you'd know that they took HOSTAGES and we barely got outta there alive.
If you did, you'd know that we don't "execute" anyone. If you did, you'd
start taking a look at the corporate behinds that you kiss so well, instead of
hassling us. If you did, you'd know that hassling us just isn't
cost-effective for you. I ditched your last two undercover boys without even
breathing hard. Why don't you take a real look at what's going on? Maybe
then you'll realize who's messin' with who. Until then, keep your sorry butt
off the Nets, cuz you're really starting to bore me with your bluster.
