    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 integration 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.

    Your name is Dave, and the world is burning.

    You look out of the window from boardroom at the top floor of Emulsified Electronics. Through the pane, in the distance, you can see the cloud of ash and smoke getting ever closer. You look down to the streets, and see the people rioting, shoving cars aside, smashing and looting the stores.

    You look up to the cloud of ash and smoke once more, and then the world shakes, and you hear a massive, earth-shaking roar. The window you're looking out of, besides being made out of molecular strengthened glass, cracked.

    Out of the cloud of ash and smoke, a great winged beast burst, it's wide maw spread as it's wings clawed through the air to get to you. Unearthly fire lay behind the beast's eyes, and when it looks at you, you understand exactly what this beast is.
    This beast is Death itself. And on top of that, it's hunting *you*.

    You give a wild grin to the winged beast. It might be hunting you specifically, but you aren't meek prey to just lay down and die, or run and cower.

    You raise the javelin; now more than just a machine- It's a weapon, something to balance the unnatural adversary before you. You don't understand how you know this, but you know that it will only fire once. So, without hesitation, you pull the trigger. The spear of deadly, roiling plasma splashed against the beast to no avail; it simply bounced off the beast's flesh.

    You shrug, and you bring your mechandrites to bear. With a powerful, shockwave-aided leap out of the window, you roared, your own voice matching the monster in front of you, as you collided- Cold, mechanical efficiency tempered with the most organic sort of wrath, fusing the two into a deadly, deadly dance as you rage against this unnatural, unearthly hunter.
    Your eyes snap open.

    <Azure, look for available apartments near here.> You ask your AI. Soon enough, she gives you a map with a list of open apartments and houses.
    You shrug, and end the meeting with Jun. Now you need to find a place to live.

    First thing you do, you ride the bus to your old apartment- wearing your full, medieval-esque, matte black suit of armor complete with a creepy, faceless helmet, of course.

    Your old landlord is there, it seems, sleeping on a chair outside of the apartment itself, a cigarette dangling from his lips.
    "Hey, Fergus." You say, removing your helmet.
    "Eh? Dave?" He asks. "Thought you were dead. Rented out your place."
    "Any chance you still have some place open?"
    "Nah, not anymore. Just a few days late, Dave."
    You shrug, and sigh.
    "Speak of the devil!" Your landlord says. "Ey, Lucca!" He says, waving to a girl with long braided hair. "This is the dead guy who used to rent your place."
    The girl just stares at you, her face paling as she saw your armor.

    "So, where did all of my stuff go?" You ask.
    "Well," Fergus says. "I put it all in a storage container, waiting for your next of kin to ask for it." He shrugged, and grabbed his keyring, pulling out a key. "Here." He said, tossing it to you. "You owe me."
    You nod, examining the key- it's not far from here.

    I'd like to beleive that, for whatever reason, Dave knows about Warhammer lore, the tabletop, and everything. He knows its a thing that people play. But for some reason he can't find anybody who's played it, or even heard of it. Maybe it's popular somewhere else, but he doesn't know. This has made him a little crazy, and he decided that if an Admech army doesn't exist yet, he'll make one from the memories he has. And so he painstakingly sculpted and built a small army; just so he had an outlet for all these memories in his head.

    That Admech army is REALLY FUCKING IMPORTANT.

    Besides the normal augmented arms, legs, and basic gauss and railgun weaponry, you notice a strange handgun. It's large, unnaturally so, and denser than normal. On the side is inscribed Mjolnir, and from what you can tell, it looks like an oversized gunpowder-based weapon. You notice another pair of drones, and, suprisingly, you see a few mounts for miniature turrets.

    You notice that, by some strange, eerie coincidence, the two drones you bought are identical to your other drones, even after mark's modifications- perhaps to make it easier to organize your inventory.

    Having bought the box, you close your eyes, putting your hand over it, and focus. .
    It clicks open, and you open it slowly.

    With these things we hardly need to use our legs. We can just use all of our drites to clamber along pretty much any surface.

    Now the decision is whether we stay with Grayson or if we give him the I want to stay with this cute techie girl look, which is much easier with a face that can display messages. Both are good options.

    we should visit Mark and have him upgrade the mechandrites. They will benefit from engine upgrades.
    Also, visit Jun for CPU upgrade if possible, we need another AI.

    "Sure. But first," Grayson says. "I. . have that favor I can still call in, right, Dave?"
    You nod.
    "Then I'll call it in. I need your help on a mission."
    "What kind of mission?" Amy asks.
    "The kind of mission where we attack the military." He says.

    I'm not one to mess with a good thing but... how would we even get leverage for that?

    We're in power armor and we can use the other three drites to brace ourself.

    On a scale from 1-10 how fucked are we concerning attacking the military. Where is standard and cutting edge military tech in comparison to the power suits CD has?

    >About at the same point, actually. The military has much greater funding than the corporations, but less (actually almost none) experimental or prototype technology that's actually in service. They're always a year or so behind the corps, technology-wise.

    Finally, here's an update to the inventory screen because of this SHOPPING TRIP.

    Man, we're a walking fucking armory. We'll have to take our new drites to Mark and see if we can get some power claws attached. Ripping the turret off of a tank sounds fun. That and adding in the biggest guns around. We have the two gunners for delicate work and the big guys for less precise more smashy work.

    Can we control our power armor even if we're not in it? Could we perhaps be lounging on a couch and use the armor to open the door for us or fetch us something from the fridge/

    We've got our priorities straight, we'll also use it to get stuff on high shelves.

    That and it'll also be useful if we're say captured and separated from our armor. We'll wake it up and it can rip the doors off of our holding cell.
