    The year is 2025.
    Your name is Dave, and you never asked for this.
    Once a generic white-collar worker who lived alone save for your cat, you were hit by a car and spent three months in a coma.
    You awoke to find that your unconscious body had been taken in by the corporation 'Emulsified Electronics', and implanted with an experimental augmentation. You soon found that it allowed you to control electronic devices with your mind, and you immediately used that power to it's fullest, eventually gaining in power and prestige until EE hired you, officially, as one of their agents. And if Jun's theory is right, your power is only going to grow...
    At almost the same time, it came to light that the PMC, ArmaTek, had started to mobilize against EE. After a solo mission, you found they had been hired by the company called Cadmium Dynamics. CD has been working toward expanding their territory- and unluckily, EE is the corporation that they need to remove next in order to expand.

    >Abel Rowling: Your coworker\drinking-buddy. Used to be your roommate years ago before you got him a job at the place you worked. He's hiding out in a mysterious safehouse somewhere.
    >Jun Viridian: The 38 year old neuroscientist who implanted you with the prototype, and from what you can tell, was the one who designed it. Her son has been captured by CD, who forced her to become a mole.
    >John Grayson: A security specialist and agent who works for EE. He has implanted arms and broad shoulders. He used to be military.
    >Verne Tolstoy: A quiet, overweight man who used to be a cop. Most of his internal organs are all augmented versions, and he has an augmented arm; Ever since a mishap with an EMP, he's been unable to do any kind of mercenary work.
    >Amy Tolstoy: A teenage mercenary girl with neon hair, augmented legs, and a wrist computer full to the brim with random AI constructs. She has all sorts of strange friends. Now works for EE as both a researcher, technician, and agent. Is somewhat keen on Dave, but he's just starting to realize that.
    >Azure, Onyx, and Cyan: Your bullfrog's three onboard AIs; Cyan specializes in networking, Onyx specializes in combat, and Azure bridges the gap between them.
    >Grasshopper: Undercover as Natalie Adede, she's an enemy agent who seduced and interrogated you when you first met her. You were able to capture her, but Cadmium Dynamics broke her out.
    >Mark: The mechanic who works for EE in B-4, building and maintaining the gear of all Agents. He's a capable pilot and has saved your skin at least once.

    "Night." You say. "Soon enough so that they won't expect a stealth mission, but late enough so that visibility will be impaired." You add.

    "I'm calling in some favors too." Amy said, her smartphone on her head. "My friends will be content with hiding in the bushes until, as you say, shit hits the fan."

    You nod to her, and start preparing.

    You're standing in a wooded field just outside of the prison, with a group of people that look like. . bikers of all things, and Mark leaning against his heli. Amy's there, complete with her strange thick, sleeveless armor.
    "Onyx is good with helping with stealth." Amy says as she pulls on some goggles. "So I'm having him show me their lines of sight."
    You'd been watching the prison all day. . and apparently you've been cursed. As you watched, you saw more and more helis appear, slightly damaged; apparently returning from a mission of some kind. From the general cheer of the troops, it looks like it was an easy, successful mission, and they're still jacked about it.
    "This isn't good." Amy whispered to you. "There's. . way too many to make this easy."
    In the distance, you notice someone talking to the ArmaTek troops.
    Natalie. In a power suit, holding her helmet under one arm. There's strange, red lightning coming out of her power core. Fuck, Grasshopper is here, and it looks like she has that power shielding from the video Abel showed you.

    You glare at Grasshopper, and draw out the Javelin, twisting the knob to 6 and aiming carefully.

    "No!" Amy said, grabbing your arm. "I thought this was a stealth mission!"


    You sigh. It would probably work if you hit, but all pretenses of stealth would be gone by that point.
    Instead, you close their eyes, and enter their security.


    You can see almost every single point of the entire prison, and every person in the building. There. . were a lot.

    The prime directive of an AI is to be useful to humanity, yes?

    We'd have to convince it it'd be doing a greater service to humanity by way of going turncoat on Cadmium Dynamics.

    Considering that they're holding a child hostage in plain sight of it, in order to further their plans and are cyberpunk enough to be cyberpunk IN RUSSIA...

    Yeah, I don't think it'd be hard to convince this AI that its masters are, in fact, worse than Hitler, Stalin and Mao COMBINED, and that its continued service to them is a disservice to the whole of humanity.

    Buuut that fucks the plan because this one doesn't give a shit. It's already gotten all "All non-Syndicate are inhuman" shit going on. We'll have to go loud and find a physical link to the system in order to hack it and Azure would be risked in the attempt.

    We'll never abandon drite-kun.

    "Forced integration isn't like that. It's not how much CPU one has, it's more like. . strength of will." She says.
    You remove your drites, slipping them in a bag so that you can still bring them with you, and put the rest of your power suit on. "Does this bag make me look too strange?" You ask, your voice coming out of a speaker.
    "No, I don't think it'll be a problem." Amy says, her own voice mechanized as well, and then waves her arms and legs around. "I don't like these things. They seem too bulky. I do like being tall, though."

    You yourself try to walk around, but you find that it's actually extraordinarily uncomfortable- the suit seems to think your shoulders are higher than you're normally comfortable with, and you have to change your walking gait to one that the suit accepts easier.

    See if we can get Cyan or Azure to integrate with the suit. Have them take over walking, if possible, to keep it steady and natural.
    At the very least see if one of them can control the suits at all, be able to keep it moving if we get shot or knocked unconscious.

    The two of you walk down the hall, following Cyan's route to the letter. There's a close shave as one of the Armatek guards notice you, but he just salutes as you walk by, directly to the computer core.
    <You can do this, Azure.> You tell your AI.

    Thinking quickly, you attach your Drites to the back of your power armor, and slip on the helmet. Using the drites, you cling to the roof.

    "Wait!" Amy called. "I don't have drites!" She called. So you descended, grabbed her tightly, and clung to the roof.

    Natalie was still helmetless, as she walked into the room. She looked around, feeling something was off, and then turned to the computer, ready to type.

    Unleash zombies.
    Get back to Azure as fast as possible and then get out.
    Turn on turrets when either zombies or powersuits are winning, keep balancing between them to keep it as even as possible, let them kill each other off. Keep turret use to a minimum.
    When we extract Azure put a copy of Onyx AND cyan in to kill of as many as possible.

    "Quiet until we're out of enemy territory." you say. "Amy, carry the kid."

    She picks him up, despite his protesting, and the three of you charge out of the core room, running through the underground tunnels. As you run, a zombie bursts out of a vent, snarling and waving his claws. Before you can react, a turret twists and shoots the zombie in the head, blasting him down. The building shakes from what you guess is another missile salvo, and you finally reach the exit tunnel.

    <Azure, we're out. Kickstart the core!>

    "Yeah." Amy said, looking to you. "The explosion was the power core, right? Didn't you have Azure do that?"
    Grayson sighed.

    Ten minutes later, you've explained everything that happened on the mission. You walked in, tricked the AI, entered the core, fought Natalie, and then got the kid, activated PANDEMONIUM, and walked out.
    "Wait." Jun said. "You got her power core, her armor, and her body? That will be. . definitely useful, having a power shield to tinker with and reverse-engineer."

    Well, give him all the mission details. Sneaking in the pipes, taking over their AI core, ripping Nat's head off, getting the kid, getting out. Turning it into a massive kill zone, leading them outside right into missile salvos. Then blowing up the AI core so they couldn't use the place again and to be sure they couldn't retrieve anything from there.

    Also if we want we have the video footage of people wearing CD uniforms, us, committing various acts of sabotage, if we want we can spin it and edit the footage a tad so it looks like they were the culprits.

    Dump all the data we got, hand over the body and bits of armor we could recover.

    For the most part, EE sells electronic devices like smartphoneheadsets, PDAs, computer parts, stuff like that. But lately they've been going into weapons and augments. For Reasons.
    That wasn't by EE's judging, that was by my own, OOC judgement. In truth, there are probably NPCs without names that are higher ranked than Amy is. I just don't mention them because they don't actually have names.
