SR PBEM NPCs
Hopi a docwagon ER nurse and Qwiki's girlfriend,
doesn't necessarily approve of Qwiki's new "hobbies" but sees them as a
step up from being a Stuffer Shaq slob. She is responsible for introducing
the PCs to Van the fixer whom she buys hardcopy Euro-Fashion mags from.
Joel Fordham a detective hired by Haz's parents
(Rich Texans) to find him after the characters claim that he has been kidnapped
by an Aztech art-dealer. He is currently undercover
in Atzlan territory continuing his mission, starting with his attendance
at an Aztech party the PCs managed to buy an invite for (from Van).
Jentz, the Razboys leader whom Piert befriended
after the initial Raz-Trogz gunfight in which a young gang member died.
He liases with the PCs regularly to swap information and plan the "defense"
of the neighbourhood from the Trog Boyz. Recently this defense has taken
on a distinctly offensive nature as it becomes clear that the Trogz are
playing for keeps and working to a larger plan.
Hemlock, Mage Lieutenant of the Razboyz
one kick ass mage for a street urchin, he makes no secret of the fact that
he is leary of the PCs and distrusts them, yet he always attends when Jentz
meets with them, he is always hovering in the background.
Trogboyz are a large gang consisiting almost
solely of orks and trolls. They previously claimed several abandoned warehouses
and a light industrial area to the south of the pcs home burb as their
turf. They are long time enemeies of the razboys. Recently they started
a turf war apparently with the intention of extending their control into
the pcs burb, they came armed with new looking heavy weaponry, submachine
guns and even a few ARs. Following a successful defense of their HQ from
the pcs/razboyz pre-emptive strike they have completely vanished as far
as the pcs and the 'star are concerned.
Jimbo's family commitments seem destined
to keep him a minor player in the unfolding events but he is still a useful
"buddy" to the pcs. He lives in a cheap apartment block relatively near
store with his wife and three kids (a 11 yr old girl and 9 year old
twin boys). He drives trucks for Nutri-Vat, the company that makes all
those yummy Stuffer Shaq Snaks (tm). He was the first to suspect Yak involvement
in the linked events of gang war and trucking company takeover attempt.
dt is the name Qwiki's matrix contact gives
himself. dt is some kind of shit hot decker who acts as some kind of virtual
Jonson cum Fixer. He has given Qwiki some good leads and even better software,
in return Qwiki and his friends have performed several "odd jobs" for dt.
One of which, a simple pick up and delivery from a disused rail station,
ended up with their discovery of a underground path from CAS to Atzlan
territory. His matrix persona is an ultrarealisticly rendered Bogart clone
complete with smoldering cigarette, he signs all text communications "cognito
Vanidols is a very slick middle aged man of
Mediterranean descent. THe pcs have found out from Hopi that he is a blackmarket
dealer in cut price luxury imports although they suspect he is much more
than that. He gave them information that lead them to suspect that the
art dealer who bought all of Haz's works may have organised his kidnapping.
He also buys from them the tunnel map for the border crossing and in part
payment gets them the invitation to the Aztech art festival opening which
Joel Fordham uses to go undercover in enemy territory. He is a relatively
friendly guy if dealt with honorably, and more than slightly sleazy. He
makes no secret of the fact that he is upset about the manner of Haz's
Anaximander Qzeotl Hernandez the pcs know
little of her except that she is the Aztech art dealer who bought all of
Haz's works and may have organised his kidnapping,although after seeing
this very attractive hispanic ladys' photo, taken off Van's security camera,
Jimbo forms the theory that it may well have been a voluntary 'extraction'
by the Dwarf.
Silent Bob is a funny guy for a bartender/owner,
he runs the "Rainbow Connection" a somewhat anachronistic tourist attraction
cum local watering hole that also serves good value counter meals. The
bar was originally aimed at the yuppie market when this part of Denver
looked set to become a rich burbclave. when the recession hit 10 years
ago and the area went downmarket the owners concreted the place shut to
keep out squatters and left. 5 years ago a guy moves into the flat above
the bar and starts refurbishing. He introduces himself, almost monosyllabically,
to anyone who asks as "Bob" and claims he is the new owner. A short time
later several trucks are seen delivering large quantities of boxes. One
week later the new holosign out front blinks to life and the bar opens
for business without any fuss whatsoever. The locals enter to find an inviting
looking bar with comfy neo-velvet seats arranged in small alcoves and groups
around a main bar. Just when they are getting used to the newly nicknamed
"silent bob" they freak when the curtains on the small stage are raised
to reveal Kermit the Frog and Friends singing a meddly of catchy tunes
from the past ten years. After the bizare hour long show Bob looks around
the room and asks "So what dya think?", everyone laughs and bob smiles
and starts up his robotic orchestra again.
mazzy troll bouncer at the Rainbow Connection,
has thrown out all of the pcs at some stage but still maintains a friendsip
with all of the regular patrons. He lives with Silent Bob, the owner, above
