  1. [Secure Tac-Net Comms... Excellent results, alse We here are slowly accruing some potentially useful contacts; the Ariadna Biker responded surprisingly well to the ouvertures of our charismatic "Corporate Leader" and even if is perhaps the copious amount of Alcoholics that She has partaken, seems even quite flirtatious towards both Mr. Lawrence and Me... If also from Your side it seems that Her Tech-Support Team is pristinely clean perhaps We should consider to be on the side of this "Coca Cola Team" more thoroughly and with all the considerable, diversified Skillset we own... After all they are backed by our real Client and so trying to even the odds, or even attempt to correct an almost impossible win, would be still working seriously in His favour; also doing correct scouting for the Trysteryon, being Close Allies of our employers of the Sunz Agency... I have also another avenue of approach to follow; while not a proper Disinformation Operative, in Bourak I followed some Asymmetrical Psychological Warfare course, aimed to sow dissent and confusion amongst enemy rank before a Surgical Strike... Those Druzes seems quite a dastardly bunch, and the fact that their Techies are now meeting the seedier underbelly of this Island Biker Subculture is another evidence towards being quite shady in their business, and also between the more probable culprits... Will see if is at all possible to start some rumors against them, maybe just as murking waters to get our desired "Prize Fish"...] ..... @Solodice... Was re-reading again the Psychowar Rules in the Manual, and being the Druze Team probably only feared and not well loved, maybe there is the possibility to pre-emptively score some desired "Metanoia Effect" against them (just to level some potential opposition, or in the case they are likely involved in a direct manner)... On My character's sheet the only useful immediate Skill will be a meager Psychology Level, but maybe I could cross-reference it with something more robust of My slightly more widespread Pool of Medical Talents (by spiking the Drinks of potential people to sway with wierd Pharmacological Stuff...??)... Let Me know if it is possible to do something useful while awaiting Eddie to reviewing the contents of the Datachip (perhaps some scouting for slander and suspected blackmail material in Maya / Arachne with My Comlog) and what Rolls could be useful... Will also re-read again the Psywar Rules now, to check on whatever strategies and negative results could be inflicted on our prospective foes.....
  2. The rumor grapevine of the various Biografts Maniacs that tried to gravitate around the Red Ankh Headquarters (hoping selfishly to profit from their generous distribution of Anti-Reject Nanotech and Silk-Based Therapies, often granted almost at no cost to volunteers for testing newer, radical experiments) started to hint that all of these weird characters related to the atypical O.N.G. were investigated by the "Boogeyman" of the Chimera Subculture... It was quicklys said that either Akh-Sekhmet, Shoujo Tora and also the relatively newcomer Doctor Amyah Bubastys Hamunaptrah were targeted by a lethal and mysterious enforcer that specifically targeted Biograft-enhanced Persons with Zoanthropic Gene-Modding... ..... The rightly feared (but still difficult to claim even existing) nightmare of any user of unsanctioned Biotech Implants, especially the more radical, illegal ones found amongst the Praxis Black Labs... The "Chimera Hunter", Bellerophon...!! Bellerophon is rumored to be a remnant leftover of the "Violent Intermission", the lethal pogrom-styled staged by A.L.E.P.H. to board and destroy the Nomad Mothership of Bakunin; supposedly was a sort of A.I.-Shard hosted in multiple Posthuman Bodies, rather than a single Recreation Lhost named after the mythological Greek Hero... Apparently the various legends about it (whatever was its real shape and function, if ever at all) was to conduct a personal "Campaign of Terrorism" against the more visible and charismatic of the Gene-Modded Chimera V.I.P. aboard the various Submodules dedicated to Animal Gene-Splicing; not only the Body (Bodies...??) of Bellerophon were state-of-the-art Military Cybernetics in custimized Lhosts, but were personalized for lethal "Asymmetric Warfare Subroutines" that adapted cleverly to any of the original and devious tactics often employed by Morlock Gang Leaders, Uberfallkommando Agents and Chimera Gladiators... Even when the whole of the "Violent Intermission" was successfully repelled it is rumored that Bellerophon was purposefully left behind to sow terror, uncertainity and dissent amongts the various Gene-Splicers Subcultures of Bakunin... When a succesfully Chimera myseriously vanish and is found dead and dismembered (often with the Cube irremediably destroyed by molten metals poured down the throat, a scary reminder of the tactic employed by the Hellenic Hero of Legend againts the Legendary Monster) there is always some crackpot tinheaded plot-theorist that scoff at the more probable culprit and claims "The Hunter Has Taken Another Trophy"... Obviously there are as many theories that dismiss how an Undercover Mind-Shard / A.I. Splinter of A.L.E.P.H. could possibly survive and thrive, right in the middle of a Nomad Mothership, building in secret spare Android Bodies in some abandoned Black Lab and constinuously donwloading its Artificial Consciousness after being destroyed is a ludicrous story, often employed as cheap newscast coverage by unscupolous Nomads Virtual Tabloids... Like the 20th Century sighting of the "Yeti / Sasquathc" randomly and periodically rumors of "Another Attack by the Chimera Hunter" resurfaces on ethe darkest recess of the Arachne Servers of Bakunin, and are given the same kind of coverage... ..... Nonetheless the leaders of the Red Ankh were warned soon by reliable Street Contacts that y their Bodyshop Free Clinics and their Headquarters was often seen nearby a mysterious Bounty Hunter that claimed to be specialized in capture of the most heinous Criminals amongst the Chimera Subculture (the so-called "Cannibals", crazed and serialistic Chimera that hunted young naives to surgically explants their shiny, brand-new Biografts to add to their own monstruous bodies.....!!!)... Apparently a gorgeous, but muscular and athletic Young Woman, with clearly an artificial Combat-Grade Lhost Body, hiding milspec hardware under an armoured trench raincoat and driving an A.I.-Assisted Cyberbike was asking more and more untoward, suspicious questions... What was alarming is that the Bike was christened "Pegasus" (as with the mythological winged horse of the Hellenic Hero of legendary yore) and that the Bounty Huntress claimed to be named "Belle" (as in "Southern Belle" or "Belle & The Beast", but also as a contraction of "Belle-Rophon" !!!).....
  3. As was due for a proficient bodyguard, then Amyah moved slightly some paces to keep up apparences to be ready to cover for Eddie's "Business Comlog Conference-Call", but tried to be still fully visible to the winking Ariadnan Biker... She did not mind whatever flirtatious advances were done by the inebriated Native of Planet Dawn, but at the moment ANY kind of opening was priceless to further advance the lagging investigation... Trying to appear focused and un-bored, but still relatively approachable if it was needed, she discretly surveyed that no one was trying to interlope on the Chimera... All the while She surreptitiously checked Her com-log, the relative absence of useful leads from the other half of the struggling "Merry Band of Detectives" was troublesome... .... [Trying to stay relatively nearby to Eddie to still give Him the Observation Bonus of the Advanced Sensor Suite (but still granting the necessary privacy), just in case... Shall I have some Rolls to do to be dutifully on Bodyguard Detail in an effective manner...??]
  4. It was refreshingly surprising for the "Haqqislamite Bodyguard" see that the Ariadnan Cowgirl was unarmed and in a relatively talkative good mood; not that the suave Nomad Chimera would have too much problems, but this would provide a far easier work for all... She politely ignored any other further issue with a "Kaffir Woman" drinking fermented beverages like fresh water and concentrated on trying to sense any interlopers lurking in the nearby parts of that debauched kermesse of Hyper-Elites and Parasytic Attendees... That kind of environment was totally off for Her, but a Special Forces Medic from Bourak is good at improvising and adapt to unforeseen circumstances and questionable intel and so She continued to trudge onwards in those "Unknow Waters"... A quick check to the Comlog signaled to the bronze-skinned exotic beauty that there were no further replies from the other tor wo team-members... Evidently even they were a little swamped by that difficult, alien environment... She patiently continued to stalk and lie in wait, like a Predator Cat hidden in the bush, with practices considered sacred by both Egyptian Lion-Headed Gods, the ferocious, cruel Hanur and the fierce, graceful Sekhmet.....
  5. Work still undergoing at a snail pace, because My new Digital Graphic Tablet has many unnecessary "Smartphone Apps" that are seriousl interfering with programs like Photoshop / Gimp / Mangastudio and so I'm continuosly shearing away unnecessary complicate interactions... Is very annoying that, after having expended so much money to go Full-Digital, still have to draw om Paper and then Scan the sheets... Unfortunately I have ready access only to a very subpar Technical Support, that at least is not very expensive.....!!!

  7. Are those Sunrise "Gundam Z" images and references...?? Pretty good stuff for Inspirational Material, but still I will stay more as Conceptuals go towards the works of Masamune Shirow (both Appleseed and Ghost-In-The-Shell as previously said) and even more obscure, older stuff like Kya Asamya's "Madox Suit" (that are now a strong inspiration for the Ariadnan Blackjacks) and even Kenichi Sonoda's "Bubblegum Crisis" (for the Military Exoskeletons turned to Anti-Cyborg S.W.A.T. Squads, not the silly Main Characters with impossibly high heeled Powersuits, that are nonetheless a powerful starting image for the Nomads Riot Grrls)...

  8. The gold-skinned woman with bronze-hued tanning made all efforts to stay cool and remain unperturbed by everything happening, but something was not right with those "Odalisques"... Usually the Bodyguard Battledancers of Bourak were trained to be the utmost of gentle courtesy and graceful poise at all times, Specially when menacing someone who harassed their appointed charge; those instead acted as crude, unrefined Street Thugs with a thug attitude that would have been not out of place on the infamous Module of the "Feminist / Terrorist" group of the Riot Grrls of Bakunin (whose bad temperament could easily be ascribed to be "If You Are Male, You Are Enemy; If You Are Female And Not One Of Us, You Are An Useless Idiot".....!!!) that She had the misfortune of meeting often during Her tenure in that Mothership... Perhaps they were of a particularly crude batch of "Specimens" (maybe hailing from Kum stock !!) or were simply belligerent babes that were filled with Milspec Grade Biografts and merely masqueraded as Odalisques; there was definitely something odd and menacing from all that weird bunch... As soon as the beautiful Chimera that She was safeguarding disentangled from the vulgar band, the attention of the Runihura Medic was focused on the Ariadnan Pilot chugging down literal liters of whatever toxic stuff those Primitives favoured... A little, scientifically detached part of Her mind was intent on analizing at purely visual levels that fascinating throwback to the earliest days of the Human Race pioneering extrasolary colonization (it was almost the "Polar Opposite" of the Haqqislamite Special Force Soldier, that had the first corrective Gene-Therapy even before Natural Birth, in the womb of Her Mother, that wanted to raise a perfect child with the best Eugenics available at the moment) but it was Her military istincts that were mostly at alert... If that Cowgirl was aggressively drunk and antagonistic towards the "P.R. Corp Exec" even a powerful, well-trained Cybergladiator like the Nomad could be at risk if facing an oversized Revolver Handcannon or even worse, one of those lethal Teseum-Edged "Bowie Knives"; those left particularly jagged cuts even on the best Subdermal Armours....a fact that the Army Medic had often fatigued to solve during some Black Ops went particularly awry... If was at all possible and the situation warranted it, then the Fake Odalisque would send a quick pinged Data-Infodump at the oter half of the Investigative Party... ..... [Secure Tac-Net Comms... Nathan, Chi Lin, everything good on Your parts...?? At the moment the Silk Lord and its Entourage of Pseudo-Odalisques are a dead end, apart from their insufferable Hyper-Elite brand of Rich Snobbiness... Our Boss is initiating Preliminary Contact Protocols with the Ariadnan Pilot of Team Coca-Cola; maybe if You are able to case Her Technical Support Team, it could be useful to cross-reference infos.....That is, if You two have not better leads down there... Let Us know when needed.....] ..... @Solodice Is possible for Amyah to size-up a little the Ariadnan Biker; maybe just to see if is dangerously inebriated or if is just a ruse...?? Let Me know if I have to do generic Observation Tests, some more in-depth, professional Medicine ones (like the ones done to Emre Tulki and its Babes' Gang, but maybe more difficult for the telltale Genetic Differences of Humans from Dawn !!) or even something different altogether... .....
  9. Have some issues with purely Digital Art as the Tablet is not functioning properly... Analog Colouring of Roughs on Paper with subsequent Scan is too slow and cumbersome as system... As I have THREE different Graphic Projects on the Backburner, maybe will be wiser to merge all of them in a single, larger "Image Folder".....!!!

  11. Then probably the Infos that started the Graphic Project Idea were totally fan-made and not grounded in solid roots of Official Infinity Background... Does not matter; will anyway proceed with the Idea of a Elite Pilots Squad of Mercs, handpicked by O-12 from ANY of the Hyperpowers / Factions and given ample budget to personalize custom Advanced Versions of that signature Yujing piloted Tactical Armoured Gear... Essentially more or less what could be a Player Character group in the Official R.P.G. if the Campaign will revolve around the Military Exoskeletons (the default setting of the Roleplaying Game is a squad of People nominally answering to O-12 Overseers, but anyone with questionable loyalties, and the Guijia os one of the two "Example T.A.G." in the rather small Vehicle Section of the Basic Manual !!)... I think will try to Conceptually explore what coould be, at least, Two Pilots for any Human Faction as differentiated thematically.....

  12. At the moment there was a lull in the ebbing flow "Social Energy" of the party, so the luscious, attractive Haqqislamite (still being very attentive to every possible danger that could present itself) while awaiting that Mr. Calverston would detach from the crass, boorish Silk Lord "Harem of Odalisques" and proceed towards the potentially useful Ariadnan Biker Gal, launched a quick research function on Her Com-Log, instructing the Geist to follow and locate any available, useful infos for the upcoming confrotation... Just barely noting that the Holographic Avatar of Her customized Geist, Ka-Ba-Sekhem, mutated from a Ibis-headed Humanoid to a quill-wielding Baboon (all symbols of the Ancient Egyptian God of Wisdom and Library, the clever, resourceful Toth...!!) then Aaliyah continued to concentrate on the immediate surroundings, starting to feel a little out of Her normal swimming depths... That detective work, while still in Her ample capabilities, was clear-cut for Corporate Spies and Private Policemen, and not totally conductive on the typical curriculum of a Gene-Modded Ex-Special Forces Soldier with a Degree in Field Medicine... If only some kind of shootout with some grievously wounded would somehow happen, then truly the Native of Bourak would have shined.....!!!
  13. At the moment the "Druzes - Silklord" avenue of investigation was dry, drier than the Devil's Dust Plains of Bourak, where the Special Forces of Haqqislam had mandatory turns of training, and whose howling arid wastes would haunt the nightmares of the gorgeous Gene-Engineered woman for the rest of Her life... Better to concntrate on the unexpressed potentials of the Coca-Cola Team and its Ariadnan Cowgirl Pilot... The "Last American State" of Dawn was rumored to produce cantankerous, belligerent People without the stoic determination of the Kazaks, the "Faux" chivalry of the Merovingians or the wild, savage primitivity of the Caledonians; the possibility of that infamous Biker Gal to react unexpectedly were very high, even if approached in a friendly manner (especially after all the copious amount of alcoholic beverages that were assimilated like the freshest Oasis' Springwater !!)... So Aaliyah started to case that peculiar, pictoresque "Retro Babe" and initiated a perfunctory security scan check... General disposition, eventual Sidearms, sourfaced attitude or clearly agitated mood where analyzed with professional, detached and dispassionated eye by the Operative that was both a very talented Medic and an Elite Soldier... Would have not been very conductive to the Investigation if the friendly, debonaire attitude of Lawrence would have been answered instead with an antiquated, oversized Colt Revolver with Teseum-Tipped Buillets, dangerous like the most advanced Heavy Pistols of the Hyperpowers Armies.....!!!
  14. @Zealot... This could be the issue probably; maybe the Pan-O Made "Zeta" are for strictly Military Ops, while the "Amped-Up Guijia" are used for the Inner Security of Concilium (could swear that they are described somewhere as particularly efficacious in Urban Counter-Warfare)... Will investigate this potential lead, and ANYWAY I'm focused on Graphic Exploration of what could be "Personalized Custom Evolutions" of the Yujing T.A.G. Frame...
  15. Had to drop all the silliest parts of the Project (where I tried to scavenge / salvage some very old stuff draw in Disney's Toons style) and will stay on a grittier "Miami Vice In Space, With Furries" drawn in a more serious style... Still undecided on N.S.F.W. Stuff for the moment... Just there are some Family / Work Issues and I'm "Upgrading" from scanned analogic paper doodles to purely digital works on Graphic Tablets, but I'm sorting all of it with daily exercises...!!
