    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 if Jun's theory is right, your power is only going to grow...
    At almost the same time, it came to light that the company called Cadmium Dynamics had hired a PMC, ArmaTek, and started to mobilize against EE. However, you and your companions have been almost too much for them, defeating them at nearly every turn.
    Just after you thought you had a breath of fresh air, a new, mysterious corp showed up, mostly utilizing some kind of stealth technology.

    >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 currently hiding out in a safehouse, and apparently was trained to be an Agent.
    >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. With your help, she has her son again.
    >John Grayson: A security specialist and agent who works for EE. He has implanted forearms and broad shoulders. He used to be military, and you currently owe him a favor.
    >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 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. After an intense cyberwarfare session between Azure and an enemy AI, Azure had changed.
    >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 multiple times.
    >Goggles: A strange person who you found in CD's computer core, wearing a skintight suit and hat, their only notable feature being strange blue goggles. Apparently they're an agent of the new company in town.

    "I'm. . not sure how we should deal with this. Whatever it is, it's not as miniaturized or portable as the Bullfrog." Jun said, examining the chair. Then she glanced at you. "Dave? Do you have any thoughts? You're the one with the most experience with this, after all."

    Looking at this I doubt it's going to operate quite like the Bullfrog. One of the main weird things going on with me is that I'm shunting piles of my brain's processing to my implant.

    While there does seem to be a guy with a similar implant who plugs into this, a lot of the computing power might be there in the chair and bouncing up and down with computer power when you start giving it more duties, might be bad.

    That and if he was quite like me why would he even bother plugging it in.

    It's a similar project but I doubt it's getting the same results. I'm guessing it is letting the person multitask really well, he was controlling independently hundreds of recon droids, and probably collating the information at the same time. I couldn't do that, I can deal with 6 sources of vision, each of my eyes, the drones and the drites but that many would confuse the hell out of me.

    "All those needles going up the spine... that'd be a pretty intensive augment? Right? I can't imagine having a bunch of holes in the back is a common thing."

    Also, we should see if we can synchronize with the chair. If it works the same way the bullfrog does, maybe we can backtrack it's signal or whatever and activate the chair without being plugged into it. Maybe it'll boost the range of our own abilities

    "Well, they didn't try to hack anything." You say. "Maybe they just have some greater control over electronics?

    "And with a chair, that kind of situation can't develop." Jun said. "Which means that. . I doubt they can hack remotely the way you can."

    "I might try synchronizing with it." You say, eying the chair.

    "But you don't have the required augments for those needles to connect to." Amy said, examining the needles. "It seems like they'd need sockets covering their entire backs."

    "Hmm. . "
    With a shrug, Jun started yanking the cables out of your Bullfrog. "You have around eight retractable cables here, and the chair here has seven needles. It might be a bit strange, but we should be able to connect a cable to each needle and see what that does."

    Well Jun, I can't interface with it quite right, too much static. It's designed for something different than your Bullfrog. It seems to be meant to control drones and the like, the three things I saw were Recon, Smrms and Hyrrms. It might be called IDW or that is at least what they call this specific program for controlling the drones.

    "IDW seems like an acronym, but what for? The device itself?"
    "It's obviously designed to control those invisible drones." Amy said. "It has a counter for three different types of drones. At a random guess, I'd call them 'recon', 'small arms', and 'heavy arms'."

    That makes sense, it's meant to control a fleet of drones, it wouldn't be much use if it couldn't operate over long distances, preferably a distance long enough that it use them to coordinate an assault without being in the danger area itself. Hell they probably try to have enough range that it can just punch through standard jamming, that or it uses individual bots to try and proxy it through.

    "Well, when I took a look at it, it was really similar to the power shield technology." Amy said. "Just a lot weaker and a lot more. . focused to a specific wavelength." She added, then shrugged. "I'll start working on replicating it; we have enough power shields for now."

    "So, there's basically three different . . well, types of suits we've developed." Mark says on the descent.
    "There's a light power suit, which is kind of a misnomer; if anything, it's more like a bodysuit with strength augmentation. Low armor, but it's light and powerful."
    "Then there's a heavy, which is all about armor and strength. It's heavy and bulky, and low chance for customization. But it'd take an entire javelin blast before the outer plating gets torn off. Once Amy is done with the jetpacks, you'll get one with the heavy set."
    "Finally, there's the Medium. It comes with a spare power core, and with that comes a bunch of extra customization you can do, from shielding to, I dunno, cloaking I suppose."

    The Medium, versatility is awesome.

    See if we can get it more modular over time so we can add armor plating to get it closer to a heavy if need be, make it lighter and quieter if we're going stealth. Not ever going to be as good at the light or heavy at it's specializations but we can swap around what we need to do.

    And a number of different drites, some really heavy armored ones with weaponry that should be on vehicles and maybe power claws, medium weight versatile ones and light ones for more precise quiet operations, great for cutting open throats in a blink of an eye.

    "The light and medium sound interesting." You say. "What else can you tell me about them?"

    "Well, the light was designed to have all the awesome strength bonus of a standard powersuit, but in lightweight form. I achieved it by pretty much tearing out everything that looked like armor. The Medium is a bit more. . not-suicidal. The medium is essentially the standard powersuit that CD came up with, but I built in more infrastructure for upgrades and customization. It's fairly modular, though, so you can add and remove armor plating. It's nowhere near as thick as the heavy, though, even when you have plating from head to toe."

    Yup, as I said medium is awesome. We'll never beat either at their specialty but there are many times when going too far in either extreme is detrimental and balanced is best, also we can modify it quite a lot more, swap out power shielding for a cloak or a signal booster for our hacking.

    I'd rather not immediately fire on them. Keep that bit a secret, at least for now.

    He looked at the turrets, and then to the setting sun. "Yeah, your idea is probably best." He said. "I trust you'll explain that to the AI you're designing?"

    Drites are versatile as all hell, they have reach, more strength than all but the most dangerous arm implants, they can carry weapons, perform delicate operations, they're flexible as all hell. The only reason they're not used more often is that most people can't use them well and the procedure for implant one is hellish, we don't need to implant them and they're easy to use.

    Azure is a She because a bit ago she got into a dominance battle with CD's security AI, who the men there considered a she, and with some help from us won. Some non dangerous personality tags carried through.

    See if us with our technopathy and all that jazz are able to help Jun and Amy with their techy business.

    But in all seriousness, the 'drites are simply better in any possible way then arms. If you're concerned that claws do not allow for the dexterity that humanoid hands do, no one stops us from removing the claws and putting the hands instead. Thought that would look goofy and stupid.

    Shoulder mounted weapons is a good idea though. Lets share it with Amy.

    You enter Mark's workshop, and find him with a single, massive set of claws on one arm. They hiss and open slowly, before clanging shut again. He turns to you. "Behold! The power claw!" He cries, and then chuckles and sets it down. "Your suit's over here." He says, pointing you to it. "The helmet has no visor because it's a structural weakness; instead I built cameras into the outside." He says, and you look it over. The entire thing is thinner and lighter than the last power suit you wore, and built more to your build. Instead of a single power core in the lower back, the suit has two. If anything, it looks less like a powersuit, more like a set of armor, complete with rigid, almost medieval plates over the outside.

    You walk all the way to Amy's lab, which is .. across the hallway from Mark's workshop. You knock on the door. and she opens it. "Sup." She says, holding what looks like a large wrist computer, and a small glimmering power core.
    Then she frowns. "Your helmet doesn't have a visor. How are you seeing?"
    "Miniature cameras, apparently." You say. "I have perfect peripheal vision because of them. Almost like I'm not wearing a helmet at all."
    "Well, take it off." She says, and you take off the helmet. "Put this thing on." She says, tossing you the bulky wrist computer. you do so, attaching it to the outside of your power suit.
    "It's based off of the EM hammer with the whole power shielding concept." She says. "Just hold your hand out and. . activate it."

    The red field blasted from your palm, throwing a trash can across the room, where it slammed into the wall. It wasn't very strong, but it was . . focused.

    "Awesome." She says, a light in her eyes. "While you were working on that, I set up the power shield and tied it to the same system that your EMP shielding is on." She said, waving around some tools. You look at your own back with the mechandrites, and see a third power core, set neatly between and above the other two.
    "That was quick." you say. "And convenient."
    "Yep!" She says. "Now give me the shockwave gauntlet thing again. Your subconscious figured out how to use it pretty fast, so I want to use your subconscious' hard work to make sure the repulsion wave is shaped right."
    You take it off, and hand it to her. She eagerly connects it to her own wrist computer and starts typing.

    "What, card tricks are inappropriate?" You ask, already shuffling your deck of cards.
    "Pick a card, any card." You say.
    Amy sighs. "Let's get back to the subject at hand."
    You shrug and put the cards away.
    "So, uh, what if one were to make a power core-powered device, devoted to jostling around another power core to produce more power? And of course the power core powering the mechanism would, itself, be jostled about. Producing more power."

    "Yeah, that's exactly how the larger cores work." She says, looking back down to the wrist computer. "Except most of them also contain massive power cells to store the energy it gains, and when the power cells run full, the core itself slows down. And in emergency situations, they pump in something with the consistency of glue to force the core into stopping. The smaller cores don't have anything like that, though."

    "Well, the more energy there is, the harder it tends to be to control. Fuses get blown, cables burn out, electrical death and destruction goes everywhere. That's why smaller cores don't need safety mechanisms; there's no worry of them exploding unless they're hacked."
    Then she shrugs. "You know the time we blew CD's power core? That's what happens if there's too much energy. Big is not the best, regardless of what you might think."

    You thrust your palm outward, and the red shockwave throws Amy away, She flips in the air, landing on her wheeled heels and skidding away, before she throws yet another sphere at you. You dive out of the way, but it hits the ground behind you, blasting you away with concussive force.

    You push yourself off of the ground. Grayson's in the training room alongside you two, but he's not focusing on you- he's focusing on the target at the other side of the room, holding his souped up gauss rifle.

    He pulls the trigger, and the rifle blasts itself back, steam hissing from one of the rifle's dangling pipes. You notice a light on his forearm's augments flash as he does so.

    "Hey, Grayson." Amy calls out. "I forgot to ask; what exactly does your augments do?"

    She gets knocked away, careening down the training room.

    Your power armor is keeping you intact, but you can tell that that was a truly devastating move.

    He chuckles, and pulls you to your feet. "That helmet is unnerving." He says. "It'll probably be terrifying to whoever we fight next- a faceless, unstoppable superhacker with mechandrites and a power suit?"

    We should get that and try it with that then.

    Use these rolls to magic hack it so that it actually does that.

    You shrug, and decide to try again.
    <Cyan, check her gauntlet and see if you can figure out how her shockwave works.>
    <Already done.> Cyan says.

    You shrug, step back, then take a running leap, throwing a 'shockwave grenade' downwards. Then you spread your body, catching as much of the shockwave as you can, and you fly through the air, before landing on the other side of the room, your power-armored heels squealing against the floor. Then you turn around, and smirk. (even though they can't see the smirk)

    This is the part where, after doing a perfect rocketjump, the other ridiculously low rolls bugger us and the floor falls through from the shock of the power armor landing so hard, dumping us into an out-of-order latrine, isn't it?

    Amy raises an eyebrow.
    "You just love to spit in the face of physics, don't you?" She says. "I want to be very disapproving, but. . "

    She shrugs, and takes a running start, before duplicating your move to a T, swerving to a stop with her wheels.

    "But it's cool!" She says.

    "You know, I should probably get some kind of screen attached to the outside of this helmet." You say. "So that you two can see my shit-eating grin."

    You and Amy then proceed to spend the next half hour bouncing around like little kids on a bouncy castle. Amy's much better at it than you are, and she flies much further, probably due to not wearing a power suit.

    "Hahaha, I need to build some of these into a new set of legs." She says, skidding to a stop again. She clicked her heels together and the wheels vanished into her feet again. She panted, and sat down on the ground.
    "It's getting pretty late." She said. "But I am way, way better at that than you are." She adds.

    "Yeah, she is." Grayson says, putting his gun away. "I'm off. Be careful, you two." He says, waving and leaving the training room.

    We could make a claim that we're off-balance, but I can't quite recall if we have a robotic arm or not. I THINK we do, but then I might just be misremembering that arm we controlled by remote. It could very well be both I'm remembering, can anyone else recall if we have an arm augmentation?

    "For the record- two mechandrites and medium-weight power armor? Kind of heavy." You say.

    She nods. "That's why I don't like power armor. I can't wear the legs while using all the cool gadgets in my augments, the arms are too cumbersome, and the helmets bother me. That's why I pried all the limbs off of my set." She says.

    "And couldn't you just add the gadgets to the armor?"
    "Well, I could, but. . my combat style is all based around mobility. If I add too much weight and armor, I get too slow, and when I'm slow that will definitely crimp my style."

    Plasma guns are exorbitantly expensive and the stealth tech hasn't been reverse-engineered yet. You could probably get tracking plasma if you paid through the nose for it, but 'drites are expensive too and you'll already have to pay through the nose for that.
