Oh yes. There's a lot of little things hidden in that sucker.

Is the allusion to Rox-in-a-Box being responsible for the crash of 29 one of those, or is that old news?
You don't ACTUALLY have to conserve ammo.  It's dirt cheap!

No. That's just an added bonus. There are many plot teasers and ideas throughout the material.

*reminded of things*

Gah.

Ahem.

Rox's connection to the Crash Virus can be found in the Dragonheart Trilogy of novels, if my brain works right.

That's also one of Alice's final pop-ups.

Of course, when she poofed, that left Wonderland unoccupied...

For the backburner metaplots might be worth mentioning that Masaru (A Great Dragon) joined the Draco Foundation as a trustee, but Hestaby was not.  But more importantly Nadja attempted a hostile take over of an ares research corp.

>Ares acquired Institute Thaumaturgique du Québec when CatCo crumbled. Instead of merging the research corp with Xerxes Positive Research, Ares held it at a distance at the behest of Damian Knight himself. The move turned out to be a smart one. ITQ barely survived a hostile takeover by a conglomerate of companies a year after its acquisition. Most of those companies listed in the takeover bid were indirectly connected to the Draco Foundation, including MechAnima, Libra Holdings, and Centurion Financial, strengthening the claim that it was a bid orchestrated by Nadja Daviar.

About the fall of one of the AAA corp, Book of the Lost contains some hints that...

[spoiler]
  • NeoNET will take the fall, as the other corps want to make them the scapegoat for the CFD/Boston debacle.
  • The Corporate Court is considering Thor shots to remove Boston from the map... But that's only one of the possible solutions.
  • EVO wants to negotiate / offer a home to the Monads.
  • Ares will regain its lost power, but at the price of a change of leadership.
  • Spinrad will try to grab the vacant seat at the Corporate Court, but there are forces trying to stop him.
[/spoiler]

Of course all of that appears through cryptic prophecies and Tarot readings, so time will tell how much will actually come to pass, and how... :)

That happened way back in The Clutch of Dragons.

Updated the OP with some of the stuff happening in Book of the Lost and Cutting Aces.

Such a tease :p

BTW, I've also added the current Denver metaplot to the list.

The Denver Nexus putting crosshairs (at minimum) on members of Jackpoint. What do they know? What do they believe?

It probably has something to do with Puck doing stuff involving the Nexus in False Flag and being granted Jackpoint posting privileges in Data Trails. I don't know how the rest of you feel about him, but my opinion of him has been pretty low since I read through False Flag. If I ever run into him, I'll riddle him with APDS as soon as it's convenient for me.

Puck is a rather complex guy. I enjoy writing him quite a bit and the question of where his loyalties ultimately lie, and why he does some of the things he does, is always up in the air. He's worked for and against Deus, for and against Pax, he and FastJack have some kind of a deal, he's worked with Harlequin, or his rogue ally spirit, in Denver, and then there's what he does in 10 AIs which y'all still haven't seen (one day, it'll see print!) ... whatever he's doing, he's someone to keep an eye on, but it's hard as he's quite good at vanishing for months, or even years, at a time.

And we haven't even talked about his time as a captive...

I briefly considered writing a fanfic involving Puck, where my Decker NPC meets him while hunting down Network nodes and the two end up in the matrix equivalent of fisticuffs.

However, I ultimately decided "not my circus, not my monkey."

Remember, you're only a genius when they need you. The rest of the time you're just an asshole.
