Choose life. Choose a corp. Choose a career. Choose a family. Choose washing machines, cars, the latest sim-rigs, and soy in six thousand flavours. Choose good chrome, low calorie, and Doc Wagon contracts. Choose fixed interest mortgage repayments on a Belvue condo. Choose sitting on that couch watching mind-numbing, spirit-crushing game show trids, stuffing the Stuffer Shack Special into your mouth. Choose rotting away at the end of it all in a miserable home, nothing more than an embarrassment to the selfish, chip-head brats you spawned to replace yourselves. Choose a corp. Choose life.
But why would you want to do a thing like that? You chose not to choose life. You chose something else. And the reasons? There are no reasons. Who needs reasons when you’ve got the Shadows?
WANTED: Five Business professionals for freelance corporate consultancy work. Short term contract. Opportunities for further work. Discretion a must. Contact Mr Johnson for details.

He will tell anyone who asks that he is the younger son of one of the councillors on the council of princes of Tir Tairngire, if you do any digging though, it’s easy to find out that particular councilor only has one son. One son, who is still alive and a highly decorated member of the Tir peacekeepers.
Face/Infiltrator skilled at getting into places either through stealth or talking, is equally as good at getting back out again. Likes the finer things in life and lives a rather extravagant life style for a Shadowrunner. Helps with ensuring he has a supply of quite a lot of expensive clothes for when he needs them for talking his way into places.
A cheerful looking young elven woman who speaks with a cultured Tir Tairngire accent. Sunny has the pale skin of someone who spends most of her time indoors, surfing the matrix. Her clothing is cheap, but worn with style. Whilst on a job she takes the default persona of her Renraku Sensei (a peasant wearing traditional Japanese clothing), but otherwise her persona is an angelic figure. Her marks are small sunbursts.
