Tuesday May 6th, 2036
Bob's old good friend Johan Eder have some important stuff, and
drops a packet to Bob while fleeing SecTek agents. After
shooting Johan, the agents try to find the holochip containing
high-classified military data stolen by Johan earlier. Bob,

Wednesday May 7th, 2036
Bob and Fecilia go to investigate the holochip, and find it to
be some military data of the SecTek (well, only Fecilia finds
out). The CompuCafe where they did the search is soon after
blown up by the SecTek after they got all information about Bob
and Fecilia. Meanwhile, characters try to figure out what to do
with the chip and each others....
Bob return to his apartment and is soon shot by the SecTek

apartment, and Jesus hears about that new weapon cache during
night. Other characters see various hints of shadowing and

At morning, Jesus founds that headquarters of the Guardian
Angels is raided (by SecTek), and only a brief message is
left behind. At noon, Jesus, Rico, Escobar, Speedy and
Ziggy assault base of the White Power gang. Jimmy-Boy and
Fecilia are at the same place because their employer is just
selling drugs to gang. No casualties to characters occur, but
place is completely raided and characters find out, that White
Power did not have that Holochip corporates are looking for.
(In fact, Fecilia is holding it but not telling anyone except
Jimmy-Boy). At the same time, searches for mysterious Mr. Ergo
fail; no-one knows him.
During evening, Escobar calls to Jimmy-Boy and after a very long
conversation, some meeting is arranged, where Jimmy-Boy and
Fecilia are going to waste Escobar, which is, at the same time,
captured by the SecTek agents....
While waiting for action in alley in front of Symbiose cafe,
Speedy is contacted by Yanaka agent which offers $50,000 for
the chip, but expects characters to leave Miami and at the same
time do a small Middle-American raid. After a long discussion
and many calls, Fecilia and Jimmy-Boy accept the terms and soon
they are in a helicopter heading for Middle America. Aboard is
also Jesus, Ziggy and Speedy. Escobar also joins them after
Yanaka had rescued him from the SecTek, installed a virus to
his head (to stop him taping with his cyberware) and healed his
hearing and leg.
Characters arrive to Jukatan at the morning, and soon depart the
helicopter. Jesus and Ziggy are still stoned when they arrive
to ruined village, where guerilla group 'New Hope' is expected to
held captive Simon Praz, a neural network expert (which is in
fact an employee of SecTek and a victim of heavy biomutation, and
thus captured by the guerrillas to reveal to important medias what
horrors can corporations do to men).
Ziggy runs to the village, and is soon spotted by the guerrillas. He
is not hit in the twisting streets of this ruined town, but when
he tries to climb to the roof of the building, a guerilla waiting
there shoots him. Meanwhile, other characters wander around and
are engaged in small firefights with guerrillas. Very slowly
Speedy heads for the center of the village, shooting everything
he spots. After a couple of firefights, he succeeds to shoot all
remaining guerrillas and Simon Praz. Meanwhile, Fecilia shots
down the media helicopter which arrived (called by the
After firefight, characters group and head for an old church
north of town, where they pickup is expected to take
place. They leave the body of Simon behind.
After a hard trip across the jungle, they arrive to old
church, where Ziggy dies for drug overdose. Remaining
characters call for a pick-up, and Speedy shoots the radio
when asked about Simon. After a while, a media helicopter
arrives to place, but is soon shot down by the Yanaka shock
troops which arrive a bit later. After finding out that
characters did not even bring the body, they are send back to
village to retrieve it (because Yanaka is only interested in
experimental hi-tech bio and cyberware installed in Simon).
Characters soon arrive back to village, but were too slow and
SecTek is already there searching for Simon. When characters
start to advance to the city, a firefight starts which
eventually leads to shooting of Speedy, Felicia and Jimmy-Boy,
while Escobar is captured by the SecTek commandos. All them
four is packed to the SecTek helicopter along with the body of
Simon Praz, while Jesus wanders around village, and soon
notices that everyone else has departed. He returns to
(Yanaka) pick-up point, where he is later shot by the Yanaka
