Summary

A mysterious Johnson hires a team of runners to deliver and set up computing equipment to a specific location within the old Renraku Arcology. It seems he may have had an ulterior motive however, as there was a former follower of Deus who was a Green at the location specified.

The Run

The team uses some help from the Johnson to get into the ACHE, then they head to the middle (un-reclaimed) floors of the arcology. During their time in the zone of horrors, the team deals with the following:

  • Numerous Teeth Drone attacks
  • A Dissonant Technomancer who hates Noaido for being able to hack
  • Two Toxic Spirits (Sludge and Barren) who hate each other (the party assists the Barren defeat the Sludge)
  • A Deus-Worship Cult
  • Numerous Spider Drones, one of which attaccked Noaido
  • Cable rooms (rooms filled with cables hanging from the ceiling with nasty universal-metahuman connectors covered in blood) sometimes filled with corpses
  • The visceral fear of being in a background count of 2-3 the entire time

Rewards

  • 26k nuyen
  • 11 karma
  • 2 CDP

That was more than I thought it would be. I had heard stories of the Arcology, but I did not expect anything like that. It will take a pretty payday for me to go back in there. And next time, I bring my new, big gun. Now, I am going to take a hot bath and get the reek of that place off me.

So, I wasn't here for most of this one, but I was asked to write something since I was called in for advice at the end there. Turns out something big's been going down in the ACHE with Deus cultists, and a dissonant technomancer green-eyes had taken control of a floor, locked in a struggle with a resonant technomancer white-eyes. While I remain certain the call to put the dissonant green-eyes down was the right one, I worry about what the white-eyes is planning. It can't be anything good. I heard talk of a well somewhere in there - that will be worth investigating in the future. I've been meaning to return to the ACHE ever since I saw that horrible, dissonance-filled host icon that looked like a burning eye. The time sounds about right. But who else would willingly go back? I'll have to think on this one.
