I reread through Seth Dietrich’s notes.
When I returned to my office station, I found that an encrypted file had been left for me. The encryption was good, but my hacking skills were enough to break it.
I laugh. If he was a peer of Armitage then he was probably damn good.
Renraku was a dead end, and almost my end too. Their damn IC almost killed me while I looked over their security tapes of the area around the flagpole where Agent Camp was found.
Almost makes me feel bad for trusting the data to Renraku.
Looks like maybe Dietrich and some of his runner pals personalities got merged into one body. No clue how that would happen. Maybe Smoke would know… Would Dietrich have used an old commlink that Armitage knew about? In his notes his confession to Armitage took place long before the end of the notes and there are things in included that Armitage couldn’t have known.
Maybe we should look for Glass Child or one of the runners who helped Dietrich. From the sounds of it there is no Dice. Couldn’t resist the bad pun but maybe one of the others lived.
I’ve recovered from the surgery and I’m testing downloading skills of the Renraku network. Intimidation. Whoops maybe I shouldn’t have scared off the orderly. I grab the cyber scanner and download the cybertech skill. I could get used to this…
Some suit from Renraku delivers the deck they promised. Can’t believe they’d block shutting it down. That could get me killed if they spot it running silent. I play around with it for a bit. It is better than my deck, well other than the power off and the configuration. I miss my prototype quick config chip. Bing. A new message? On this thing? Curiosity gets the better of me.
If you have an interest in you acquiring a prototype cyberdeck, break into the 53rd level office #5010 copy the files from the computer folder operation bladerunner. This file will lead us to the prototype deck and the schematics, I only have interest in the schematics of the deck, you may keep the deck.
A prototype cyberdeck? How can I resist the chance of getting a cutting edge deck? I download English literature. I mean if they cut me do I not bleed?
Alan and I levitate down towards the roof. Alan might have bruised ribs from my cyberarm clutching to his chest to avoid falling 3 or 4 hundred meters. I download the Mathematics skill and calculate the impact velocity if I were to fall. Maybe that was a bad idea.
We stealth over to the turret, I plug into directly into it and try to hack a mark. Damn! I have the worst luck. Great Grace, first things first, on a stealth mission alert the guards right when you get there. Check.
I download Free Fall and jump out the window spreading my arms and legs so that wing suit let me glide. Damn rifles getting in the way. I move my arm to shift the guns and start falling straight down. I pull the chute but a little late and I fall in a heap on the ground rolling. That might be the last time I fall for one of Alan’s plans. Literally fall. I feel the bruises on my arms and legs but still manage to sprint in the direction of Roy’s approaching van.
