You have:

1 set of armor(?)+helmet (Your clothes are thick and stiff, seemingly reinforced with ballistic weave. There's no kind of tab, logo, or label on any of them.)

"It's in some kind of safe. You open it, it's yours. Hold on."

You hear her move to the door and begin undoing the locks



Finally the door swings open and you see the occupant:



Behind her banks of salvaged monitors flicker fitfully


She sees you too, her eyes widening in surprise. She steps back hastily and trains a pistol on you.

"'Knowledge can be dangerous' huh? I'm going to need some answers."

Her hands tremble slightly

"Now."

"Who told you about the previous tenant's stuff?"

"Was I mentioned?"

"What the gently caress is in that box that a freak like you would show up for it?"


A) Negotiate
She's still willing to talk, even if it's only to interrogate you. (You'll have to answer at least a few questions)

B) Incapacitate her
You're faster and stronger than you remember being. You could rush her and knock her out, though you might get shot in the process.

C) Kill her
Bringing a knife to a gun fight isn't all that bad when you've also got body armor(?) and combat augs(?).

Check if we have junk. "Wait, poo poo. Hang on....yep... Oh thank god..... okay, sorry, that was wierd. I had to see if I still had my dick. Long story. Also if you shoot me or I die there's a very good chance I'll blow up. Also a long story. Good news though, I have a dick. Where's the drat safe?" <-- That's my vote by the way.

"You? You're the-"

Her grip loosens on the pistol and one hand goes to her forehead, pressing hard.

"No, no I suppose I don't. Get your poo poo and get out"



You kick your way through old takeout boxes and scattered electronic components, your way lit by the dim glow of many monitors. The safe is still where you left it, though now a tangle of wires run to the keypad from a hand terminal and scrapes and scratches cover the surface. It hasn't been opened, but not for lack of trying.



You bend over, rapidly punching in 0451...

and the safe chirps angrily, its lights flashing red.

You hear a derisive snort behind you.

Did she break it somehow? Or did someone else get to it before she moved in?

****?
(You can either guess a combination or question the tenant.)

No. The only software you have with you is the Windows 2077 tapes. Your personal hacking skill boils down to running a few scripts. Kiddie stuff. As for what's in your head, you're not sure, but you can't find an i/o port on yourself to make use of it.

Various thoughts run through your head, some absurd, some obscene. If your suspicions were correct however, there was one obvious answer:


With a sinking feeling you type '2077' on the keypad.



The lights on the safe flash green and the door swings open! You can feel the tenant crowding behind you, trying to peek over your shoulder. You shift your weight to block her view and quickly scoop up the contents of the safe.

You now have:
1 data chip (standard, contents unknown)
1 hand terminal (standard, off)
1 pistol(?) (loaded(?), conventional(?))
1 SinDex ID (supposedly for a "Kal Hinton")
1 anonymous 500 credit chit

You turn and straighten to find the tenant blocking your way, pistol still casually held in her hand.



"At this point I know better than to ask. All I'm gonna say is that if any of this comes down on me I'll be in touch."

With that she steps aside.

You were planning to head to Red Row next. You:

A) Head over

B) Go somewhere else
