Just a game to me
Like a fish to water
Hard Drive Dealer
Former Renraku property
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.
|Matrix-Bound||Dial-Up is a sentient AI, and as such cannot provide physical active checks or legwork.|
|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.|
|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|
|Knowledge Checks||4 + Loyalty + Aspects - Notoriety|
|Active Checks||2 + Loyalty + Aspects - Notoriety|
|Gear Acquisition Checks||8 + Loyalty + Aspects - Notoriety|
|Networking Checks||12 + Loyalty + Aspects - Notoriety|
