We watched as the corporations slowly took over every facet of our lives, monetizing our most intimate information, grinding down every right given to us and spitting out whoever wasn't profitable enough.
Unlike the others we didn't keep our head down, we picked up a gun, downloaded the anarchist cookbook and went to fight.
After a stint in corporate prison we are now back home, ready to take the fight to the mega corps again.

Nah, roof seems fine to me. A.

E: Wait, do we actually have wings? We have cooling fins that are vaguely wing-shaped, but that could just be for max surface area. Let's make sure they're actually aerodynamically useful before we throw ourselves off a skyscraper.

Deploying the cooling fins is gonna light us up like the sun in the IR, I dunno if I'd use them even if they were aerodynamically sound. If we can make them not radiate and just act as wings, let's jump. If not, time to find another way in.

Try extending the wings but leaving the cooling loop off

Yeah all that, start heading downstairs but don't commit to the basement until we can find a map.

Also, damnit, we were supposed to dance the dance of friendship and distraction, not the dance of murder and angry milspec drones

E: Actually, basement might be where Gates is, I doubt we want to lead the baddies down there. He's either stealing something or hacking something or whatever, but all the utility access points and vaults and whatnot are in the basement so let's maybe not pull heat in that direction. How's the roof sound?

Hrm, the more I think on it the better the roof sounds. It's the fastest egress - just jump straight up. Doesn't require searching for floorplans or trying to navigate or anything, pulls security as far away from the basement as possible (yes yes I know Gates might not even be there, etc. etc. but it doesn't hurt), and it lets us get out into the city and lose any pursuit ASAP.

We've got wings, and beyond that it looks like our wings have an engine. Two, in fact. Let's put them to good use.

Grabbing a mag is gonna take like half of our time, not worth it.

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?
