BE - We still don't know the new guy so well and he's probably pretty decent at reading hostile grounds. Might as well spend the hour doing both.

ANYTHING BUT H - Sure he won't just leave for kicks, but do we want to give him a possible payday he might not be able to resist by leaving him someone worth kidnapping as a traitor to her community? (If I have to positively vote, F is fine.)

Publicly and undeniably embarrassing the new bad guy is probably a decent way to guarantee they team up against us. You really want to deal with that?

Short Answer Section
1. Are you still going to pay Yngado, even though you killed Ymirez?
2. Are you going to visit a professional about the level of synthesis you're developing with your cybernetics?
3. Are you going to see Baz Kemandi about her job (Data Assassinaton), or are you going to take time for your team to recover and relax?
4. Are you going to have a talk with Vare about the nature of your relationship, or are you going to leave that metaphorical Lar-gast lurking in the corner for another day?

Essay Section
5. What sort of plans and expectations do you have for Regal and her companions, either short or long term?

1) Yes. Reputation is everything. We can figure out if he tried to throw his deal (read: us) later and settle that if called for. But for now, pay the man.
2) Yes. On the one hand, nothing says we HAVE to turn into a cyberlich or something like it's fuckin' Shadowrun, but we're not going to integrate properly on our own. Or maybe we might, but why chance it. Just do your research so you don't end up walking into some government trap again.
3) Downtime. This job was kind of a big deal and even if the crew didn't need some R&R time doing anything even modestly visible would attract possibly all the attention on the planet in our direction. If it isn't already.
4) Figure things out with her. This one's probably more complicated than I'm giving it credit but there's probably no way around this one. Working too close and too well together for the whole 'starting over' thing to hold up.
5) We don't really have any reason to leave and there's no incentive not to take this place over. We'll want to do it gracefully, if we can. And Lazaruise brings up a good point: we are going to burn slavery off the face of this world.

Thanks for the concern, everyone. Fortunately, everyone is doing well on the average, but a combination of Life and a demotivating lack of votes did kinda push this onto the back burner. I don't have an interest in seeing this dead, though, so I can definitely get to work on the next update if there's interest.

Oh.

B, and let's ask whether/how time runs differently in the Matrix. I doubt we can live out an entire life in 40 minutes like that one Star Trek episode, but I'd be surprised if we're in a rush.

B can turn into A but not the other way around. C I don't know about because of its connotations.
