This headache's a killer, you've felt it coming for days now. Well, it's here, and rubbing your eyes isn't doing any good so...

The rain falls in thick sheets, cut through with nauseating neon lights and smoke only a shade more noxious.

This is/was your home, though with how things have been going lately, you hardly recognize it anymore. There's trouble in the wind and on the wires, and their steady hum now sets your nerves on edge instead of calming them. You are (???), and somehow you feel like you're going to need every favor, trick, and scrap of knowledge you've got to get through whatever's coming

*CLASS SELECTION!*
You are :

A. A DodecaDeacon of The Machine Mind

The Machine Mind mandates that there be One Truth and Zero Falsehood. As a twelfth-level initiate, it is your job to spread the Truth and root out Falsehood. That's the official line anyway. You've found the world a little less binary.

B. A Hacker

Coder, cutter, cracker. There's many names for what you do, but only one result: success. You've made a name for yourself on the wires by freeing heavily secured information. Other things, you've found, are unfortunately much harder to free.

C. A Breaker

Sometimes (a lot of times) cracking skulls is easier than cracking code. That's where all seven feet of you (heavily augmented of course) comes in. You're more than a match for any punk who tries to cross you, but some things just might might break you before you break them.

D. ???

There are things in the dark, things that decency (and heavily armed corpsec) demands hide their faces in shadow and names in static. You happen to be one of them.

Guns!

Internet!

and/or

Horrors created by the unrestrained exponential growth of private capital and technology! (and lots of gifs!)
Then this is the place for you!

Some notes: This is my first cyoa, so be ready for some rough edges. I expect to update a few times a week, with a lot of activity at the start as we flesh out our main character. I'm running this off my own homebrew so most things are gonna be under the hood. You'll see your choices, and then their consequences, which should be a lot more fast and fun than minmaxing and juggling numbers. Options will be in bold. Everyone is welcome to both vote and discuss options, even if you haven't been here from the start. For our first vote, We're finding out who we are! Also whether we hung around our hometown or are only now returning.

You... we are... I am? Ugh, this headache makes you feel like your memory buffers are overflowing. Do I even have memory buffers? Your neural architecture is a bit hazy at the moment, maybe a diagnostic would get your meat and metal on the same page. What you can remember right now comes in flashes: a gun in your hand, crumpled bodies in SinDex uniforms, the grey walls walls walls walls wallswallswalls






You're on the street. You shouldn't be on the street. You shouldn't be on the street at all, especially in a maxsec issue jumpsuit after curfew. If you're lucky, you'll get locked up (again). More likely you'll get hacked up and spread over several "used parts" bins by some slicer gang looking for easy money. You need to go somewhere, anywhere but here:

A. Go Home
You lived here, once. Third stop on the subway, around the corner, up the stairs, and through an unmarked steel door behind the Soya Shack. Of course you no longer have a transport pass or your keys, but you'll manage.

B. Make Contact
Someone put that gun in your hand and pointed you at Sindex. If you made it out, you were supposed to head to The Shard and ask for a copy of "Windows 2077". Maybe you were set up, maybe the info's long since expired, but it's all you have to go on.

C. Get Fixed
You're quite fond of your genitals, thank you, but you could do without this headache. Plenty of front, back, and side alley techdocs could sort you out, for a price. You have a few credits left in your account, but a complicated fix could end up (literally) costing you an arm and a leg.

In the past few decades, concrete, steel, and glass have seemed ever more fragile in the face of neglect and recurring nanoplagues. If you were a well to do corp and didn't want your fancy flagship building to have holes eaten in it or collapse in ten years, you had to look to something new. For Paragon Tech, that was supposed to be a revolutionary fast growing monocrystal. A building that would not only build itself, but would also be "Durable as Diamond!". The tagline didn't hold up. There was a mistake in the grow lattice, or a fluctuation in crystallization conditions, something accidental (or deliberate) that created a massive fault line in the structure. On the day of its grand unveiling the Shard was tested, and shattered. The resulting rents in surrounding buildings, pavement, people, and Paragon's profits led to investors pulling out, and the site, with its tower remnant, being abandoned.

Still, real estate is real estate, and the prospect of a glittering fortress ended up being too appealing to resist. Various gangs and grey market groups have moved in since, and the Shard now serves as the center for illicit activity in NuYork. As long as you're willing to work around a worrying amount of monomolecular edges, there's no better place to go if you need something shady.

On your way to the door, you catch a reflection in one of The Shard's facets:


Ugh, who gets face augs?

...

That's my face!

That's not my face!!


The realization jerks you to a halt. You frantically paw at "your" face and pat yourself down:

You Have:
2 arms (meat?)
2 legs (meat?)
1 head (now hurting even more) (metal?)
1 maxsec jumpsuit (paper, the ID U0lOR0VS is written across the chest and back over a bar code)
1 anonymous 500 credit chit
1 pistol (surprised, you surreptitiously take it out and check it. It's a one and done: tiny lovely flashmolded plastic body, fused propellant charge, ceramic bullet. Undetectable to scanners and small enough to escape a cursory search)

Shaken, you continue on into The Shard. You easily find a software dealer on a lower level and ask him if he has Windows 2077.

"That's abandonware Gramps. You want it you can go pull it off a dead board on the wires."

Do you:

A. Keep pushing (write in)

B. Find someone more knowledgeable

There's plenty more software dealers in The Shard. A few even specialize in outdated tech.

C. Find someone more important
No two bit software pirate's gonna take on a corp, no matter how much they hate DRM. Look for someone who would and could.

OOC: OK I freely admit I thought this might be a bit of a clusterfuck, but I wanted you guys to at least have a go at finding out directly what your new toys can do, as well as manage them all. Roughly, runtimes define your available actions, and heat limits how long/how intensely you can do those actions. Runtimes have a short startup and shutdown delay, which means that you want to have critical functions (combat) locked and loaded to reduce delay. Leaving free runtimes is also good, because it means you only need to wait for the new startup (not startup new+shutdown old).

If this sounds like too much goddam hassle I can just abstract it on my end: give me a heat% and runtime% target and I'll stick to them. You'll still be able to tweak things specifically on occasion, the bookkeeping will be rolled into your choices and I'll handle the nitty gritty.

If you have any questions about this feel free to ask, I won't be (as) obtuse
