10/24/2009 - Storming the castle... again...

OK, more info about you current situation.

First, internal mail delivery is pretty much only for packages, maybe a small handful of envelopes per month. While there are plenty of packages delivered to the building, very few get delivered to most floors. So trying to get around the building pretending to be delivering mail is going to be at least a little conspicuous, so you'll need to do a fair amount of internal legwork to get away with that. Unless you convince someone to actually give you access to the elevators, pretending to work int he mail room doesn't help much.

As far as you can tell, they've given you a tour of as much of the building as they plan too. They don't tell you guys much about the upper floors. When asked they tell you that the top half of the building is mostly executive office space, and workspace for a few secret projects.

Everyone arrives to work in business-casual clothes, and they change corporate suits after arriving. Everyone is in dark suits wit white shirts, the only thing that sets people apart is that they all show a single piece of gold jewelry. There doesn't seem to be a pattern to the jewelry, it just seems like everyone has one piece of obvious but tasteful gold. There are a few magical pieces for those looking from the astral.

There are spirits wondering around the building, and almost every om is protected by ward, although the wards on the first few floors are so porous that anyone can sleaze through with little effort, except on the elevator shafts. You are wand about the wards before getting into the elevators, so astrally perceiving visitors can drop their astral activity before being pushed into a ward.

There are security cameras an fiber optic surveillance everywhere. No one is wearing badges, so security is based off of proximity badges or tokens, or visual/aural/chemical biometrics. This will make unauthorized access very hard, unless you can convince someone to give you badges (if they use proximity badges) or put your biometric characteristics in the security system.

Most of the wards are force 8, which make them very hard to get through.

Remember, you need to deliver the box to the executive's desk without killing anyone.
Everyone involved will get 10k nuyen.

Saturday, October 10th

For those who don't remember the gameathon (everyone was there, right):

Everyone at gameathon earned 20 Karma.
All characters received 100 Karma for completing the second year of high school.
All characters received 2 more initiations (grade 3 and grade 4).
(please add 26 karma to your total karma to track the value of the initiations)

For your summer field trip, you're being sent to Europe, with you magical group, and a dozen other classmates. You'll be spending most of your time in Saeder-Krupp corporate facilities, shadowing corporate employees, and sometimes assisting them. The fun part of the trip will be training with corporate security for a week, and participating in a mock battle with some new recruits.

You've been warned that there will be a lot of hard work involved. You will be expected to study current operations of the facilities you visit, work on planning sessions, assisting with the more mundane day-to-day chores of middle management, and finally assisting with the physical work of those being managed.

All in all, the trip will last for six weeks. Your first stop will be in Europort, a highly industrial and mostly automated port complex/city. After two weeks, you'll head to one of SK's central offices in Germany to work with their marketing teams. Finally, one of the last two weeks will be spent going through SK's first week of boot camp for their corporate military. The last week will leave time for tourism and other fun.

Remember, you've been offered your first "shadowrun" job. You've been asked to deliver a box to a specific office in the SK office you will be visiting. You need to get the box on the desk of the employee tat works in the office while he's there, and cant' kill anyone in the process. If you succeed, everyone who participates will get 10k nuyen.

Before you leave, you find a small stock of alchemical supplies on your boat with a message written in blood on the wall in your chemistry lab "payment for services rendered".

Refined Mineral Reagents: 32 unusually smooth quartz pebbles.

Refined Metal Reagents: two units of each metal reagent (iron, copper, silver, mercury and gold)(in the form of crude coins with a symbol of a book stamped on the surface)

Raw metal reagents: 50 units of raw iron dust

All of the reagents carry a strange astral signature, but are magically viable for use in talismongering or enchanting.

You have about to weeks before your trip if there's anything you want to do before you leave town.
