3 people meet at a hotel. We were contacted by Alesandra Torres, our former Lieutenant in a government project called Mastadon. MK Ultra stuff.
Meet in Ibis room at 6pm sharp
Red Haired – ginger – in shape Ed Sheeran = Xavier Callahan
Black short hair, jeans and hoodie = Cybil Killian
10 years ago we were experimenting with astral projection and drugs- we went into a meditative trance and shared a fever dream. Saw a science fiction city with humanoid people with bio mods – we had memories about the place and felt like we’d always been there. Bodies changed. We lost a member during the experiment.

Most Rukians are plugged into the All-Song.
Plug into All-Song – it’s noisy –
Trust Code Archeologist has a lab in Ruk.
Reach out to Quiet Cabal – Udam-majir, has no help
Search for a Lore-Shark (Maldaru) going to meet him
Kid tries to sell spiral dust
Woman tries to sell new skin
We leave to meet Maldaru via the tubes – we see a girl moving through the crowd with a Wondergun – see’s Cybil and comes in for a hug – fires the gun – Cybil shrugs it off – clone takes it on the chin
Pneumatic Elevator Tubes we get in – it’s like birth as transportation – base of Market Tri-Tower
Maldaru jokes about eating captives at his feet. He finds her… she is good at hiding in plain sight. Payment – 10 valuables in 10 days time (300 bits, or cypher). Variokaryan – eats people. Deception worked, convinced that we’re with Quiet Cabal and that Almashun is with Karum trying to summon a planetovore. He agrees to give information to keep the Cabal out of his way. I hope we don’t see him again.
Karendar Tower 23rd floor – lobby is dimly lit bio-organic rot covers stuff. Two Chrysalids guard the entrance. I try to deceive our way in. It doesn’t work.
Clone hugs and I stick a Chrysalid in the eye with the Desicator.

No clone for 5 days
Inside, humans are connected to silvery mechanisms and a web of computer nerves, they’re screaming. Brady has a big gun (Slaughter Accelerator) with a half Chrysalid – Amlashun. -
Hoping to use deaths of Mastadon team to entice Brady into action. She is using humans to find the True-Code. Part of humanity came from Ruk.
