Overview

You hear a click over the line, then some horrible dial-up internet noises. A computerised male voice hisses into your ear "Dial-Up. What can I do for you today?"

An escaped Renraku AI, Dial-Up was released during the crash and floated around the 'trix before noticing the profitable and entertaining world of shadowrunning. He soon became a well-connected and well-informed Fixer.

Aspects Description

Aspect Description
Matrix-Bound Dial-Up is a sentient AI, and as such cannot provide physical active checks or legwork.
Above Aspect pending approval. Please notify Thematics.
Just a game to me What would I do with Nuyen? Nothing. I'm in it for the fun. If Dial-Up thinks the run would be particularly interesting (High, Semi-Prime and Prime Runs, along with any Renraku run,) he will demand to be given full footage of the run afterwards.
Above Aspect pending approval. Please notify Thematics.
Like a fish to water Like many AI, Dial-Up is startlingly good at manipulating the matrix. +2 on Matrix active checks
Data Miner Everyone leaves tracks, some fainter than others. +2 on checks to find people or files on the matrix
Computer Jackson Due to his constant presence on the 'trix, Dial has made many friends, few of which know his real nature. +2 on networking with and +2 on knowledge checks about Hackers
Hard Drive Dealer While his days of being bound to a physical server are long gone, Dial still knows where to find the good stuff. +2 on gear checks for electronics.
Briefing Failure is suboptimal. Thus, Dial-Up will have a standard matrix search of the Johnson or another job-relevant topic which he will tell the Runner upfront.
Former Renraku property Before you ask, no, he didn't know Deus. But after he wriggled free in the second crash, he managed to keep some Renraku files. +2 on knowledge (Renraku)
Logistics His programmed purpose was to do stock predictions and asset estimation. +2 on checks regarding the stock market or finance
