Votes are mixed on this one. It seems like the general trend is head downstairs in search of either a ground exit or some kind of sublevel. Runner up is up and out, either from the roof or a convenient window.


Just to confirm, you're going:
A)Up!
B)Down!

We've literally got jet engines, we'll just fly away.

Unless those nacelle-looking things in the picture of our wings aren't engines, then we'll have to improvise. Or just glide down to the street and start sprinting.

Pictures are as close as I can find, but may not be 100% accurate.

God drat it, was that a simulation the entire time or something? Regardless, I'd appreciate if the Boss would stop loving swapping our personalities out at will.

Can we remember anything we did while Personality Matrix 1 was active? What time does our internal clock read, and how does it compare to when we woke up/were at the Met/whatever?

Your internal chrono puts the time at 22:13:85:843, which makes it just about a .. day and a half(?) since you entered the Shard

No.

1 head (metal?)
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.)

100 is about a days wages for the average prole. You could easily put yourself up in a tube hotel or roach motel for a few days.

Though there is a difference between anonymized credits and normal ones. If you want anything off the grey or black market you'll have to use anon credits, and laundering normal credits, while possible, incurs a steep cut.

Y'know, I'm betting Personality 1 is our mission personality, Personality 3 is our debriefing/escape/whatever personality, and Personality 2 is our normal everyday life cover story personality. The Boss keeps them all nice and isolated from each other so that if 1 gets captured, it can't give up any information 3 knows about where the Boss lives or safehouse locations or whatever, and 2 is the perfect cover for 1 and 3 because it's living a completely normal life and won't know about the others' adventures even if it gets mindread or something.

Mindreading isn't a thing. Mindripping is. It's technically a crime against humanity, but most with the tech to do it also have the resources to cover up any involvement.

You don't know? It's something that is only ever spoken of in whispers. If you had to hazard a guess it'd involve replacing a lot of brain matter with tailored cerebral implants?

Yeah that'd be the "or something." But TL;DR we're some escaped experiment that was designed to be the ultimate deniable asset and has now been hijacked by the shadowy revolutionaries. Or, gently caress it, maybe we're not escaped at all and this is working as intended. All this is on behalf of some hypercorp and we're the baddies, how the hell would we actually know?

I'm guessing its something like that too. I would go as far as to say Matrix 001 is our fully 'transformed' mode (Battle Mode), Matrix 002 is skirmish mode (Single Weapon), and Matrix 003 is our walking around mode (I'm just a normal person).

Only issue is, we're still wearing our 'gear'.
