Aaron disconnected the comm channel and pumped a fist in the air. He was getting paid today, and any day you got paid was a good day.
The other patrons at the greasy café knew better than to look back at his office. The booth where Aaron ran his ops was reserved primo Los Pistoleros space. Everyone who came down here knew that this was his spot, and anyone disconnected enough not to know got the money treatment from Aaron’s bruisers. Those two, cybernetics bargain-bin level but beefy, sat in the booth just across from Aaron watching clones and golems face off in a g-ball match beamed from Luna to the table’s inset screen.
It must’ve been an interesting game, because they didn’t even notice when the woman slipped into seat across from Aaron.
The low-watt lighting arrays gave an oily sheen to her close-cropped dark hair. Her dark dress had a high skirt and a low neckline.
“Whatever you’re selling, chica, it’d better be good. I’m having too good a day to let it spoil.”
Aaron’s two toughs stood up in alarm, crowding the table, but Aaron waved them off. “Todo bien.” They looked at the woman uneasily.
She smiled, and suddenly she looked very familiar.
“Oh, you mean that job you just pulled with Gabriel? Yes. That was interesting.”
Aaron’s jaw worked for a few seconds as his brain caught up. “I heard you were out,” he finally said.
“I am, and I’m not. I’m just a lot more discerning with my skills. Interested?”
“Oh hell yes.”
Just This Again
I’m convinced that the best way to use Spot the Prey is to camp remotes. Money up, hit R&D whenever it makes sense, then use Spot the Prey to see if it’s worth it to go after whatever they just put down. If it turns out it’s something you don’t want to go for, you haven’t wasted any cash or clicks.
And since we’re in criminal, that non-wasted click turns into Temujin credits, SecTesting runs, Turning Wheel counters, or Datasucker tokens.
But who to put it in? Well, I just did a Gabe deck, and a lot of the other runners didn’t make a lot of sense. So, let’s just do an Andi deck. AndiSucker lives on!
The deck makeup is pretty standard actually. Everything you’d expect Andi to be packing three years ago, but with her Fracter and Killer upgraded and Aaron added to the resources. I mean, I would absolutely love to put Desperado in here instead of Doppelgänger, but that would probably mean losing a Medium or cutting Turning Wheel and a Datasucker.
I suppose an alternate build would be to drop one Medium for another Turning Wheel and swap the Doppelgängers for Desperados. I think that one would focus more on Account Siphon and less on turning Doppelgänger or Spot the Prey runs into Medium digs. Something to think about.
