Question of clarity, Brom

“... Saint Nick don’t want no media, and don’t want the wind t’ sing of the thing to those Inside. So, we operate on the low. Payday is two grand apiece for delivery. Five large for information leading to recovery by Saint Nick’s team, and three grand apiece if those that stole from Saint Nick wind up in a body bank."
So, two questions here, because I think Blossom would actually understand Starlight:

1) Who is Starlight referring when she says "... those Inside."?

2) Is Starlight say that:
- we get $500 each if we pass on info that allows Saint Nick to retrieve his son with his own team,

- we get $2000 each if we actually retrieve his son,

- we get an additional $3000 each if we kill the kidnappers...

Did I get that right? So, $5000 if we get the boy back safe and kill the kidnappers? Or did I miss understand?

3) Also, do we know how Starlight got our contact Agent numbers?

Thanks!
Ayrn

No rush, Hammer.

Ayrn,

Those on the inside would likely mean whomever it is that Saint Nick associates with on a regular basis. So, work, friends, etc.

Your understanding of the offer was almost spot on. The difference being that if you return Jace you're paid $2k apiece. If you kill the kidnappers, you get $3k apiece.

Lastly, those looking for work would post their contact info and willingness on a Dark Net Job Board. You can even use a LinkedIn for Edgerunners. That's where all of you full-timers would post skillsets, etc. Those who have day jobs and run on the side arent as likely to be taken seriously in that environment.

So it is Not 5 Grand ???

So it is Not 5 Grand if we Kill those responsible for the boy's disappearance + deliver the boy ???

3 Grand for Killing Abductors + 2 Grand for Delivery of the Boy = 5 Grand Total ???

Library search

If found us through some DarkNet LinkedIn place, can you make a Library Search check for Blossom for the following:

1) Blossom would do a search on Starlight and try to pull up as much info as she could on the fixer prior to coming to the meeting.

2) With her cyberwear (minivision screen) and wifi connections to her Agent, can Blossom give mental search commands for the other four people runners here in the room with her? Maybe through image recognition software?

3) Having the pic of the kid, and the info of the school, can Blossom run mental search commands to gather an additional information from the DataPool regarding the Jace? Maybe so friend of his posted something online about his disappearance, or there's info on the DarkWeb about the disappearance?

Thanks!
Ayrn

Nope! This is the arrangement:

$500 a piece if we give Saint Nick info s/he can use to retrieve his/her son.

+$1500 a piece if we find and retrieve Saint Nick's kid ourselves (for a total of $2000).

+$1000 a piece if we also kill the kidnappers (for a total of $3000)

Nothing if word leaks out to the media or people close to Saint Nick that we've been going gang-buster and killin folk to get the kid. (well, maybe Saint Nick will pay us something to get the kid back... but no promises, and we'll definitely be on Nick's naughty list)

Running silent on this one, Choombas.

If found us through some DarkNet LinkedIn place, can you make a Library Search check for Blossom for the following:

1) Blossom would do a search on Starlight and try to pull up as much info as she could on the fixer prior to coming to the meeting. - Check your PM.

2) With her cyberwear (minivision screen) and wifi connections to her Agent, can Blossom give mental search commands for the other four people runners here in the room with her? Maybe through image recognition software? - Simple tasks can be ran through the mental link. Consider them preprogrammed default commands for the Deckchip. These would be a DC 10 or less. Anything more than that and you'll need to use your entire interface. Performing a Library Search for these Edgerunners—accessing the DarkNet in general—is more of an Everyday (14) to Challenging (1.

3) Having the pic of the kid, and the info of the school, can Blossom run mental search commands to gather an additional information from the DataPool regarding Jace? Maybe some friend of his posted something online about his disappearance, or there's info on the DarkNet about the disappearance? - This falls under the realm of the previous answer (2). You have to enter into your Deckchip specific unique information so it isn't a preprogrammed command.

Awesome

So, if Blossom wants to be discreet about it, she'll need to do it privately?

Thanks!

Also...

Can Blossom give her Agent verbal commands if she wants... something similar to "Suri"?

Thanks!
Ayrn

Yes.

Correct on both accounts, Ayrn.

Good start to the posting, my little meatbags. I'm going to give everyone a chance to post before giving Starlight's responses.

One quick correction on your post Tann. The Gray Samurai aren't the location of the meet, but rather a boostergang (the fellows you encounter outside the fish processing warehouse with the battlemasks).

Delayed until late tonight

I'm busy until late tonight.

Brom, if you want to update, Blossom would likely only ask upfront if Starlight is coming with them.

Other than that, I'd probably interact a bit with Casino's and Vegas's obvious staring at Blossom.

I'll leave that up to you.

I'm not about to try and channel your vision of Blossom.

Thanks Brom

I'll do a quick edit.

Ayrn, Casino is not staring at Blossom. Rather he has at certain times given her a look depending on the direction of the conversation. Staring implies that he has only looked at her the entire meet
