New info about John Hopkins in either Clutch of Dragons or Storm Front ... I blank on which. It didn't emerge form the dragon war untouched.
Yakashima's also one of the corps in the running for elevation to a Triple A. It's bigger than many on the court and has fought for access for years, but back in the day, the other Japancorps froze it out as they had plenty of influence. After that influence poofed, the other corps were able to keep it from joining in to turn the tide back to Japan.
With a place at the table so tantalizingly close, the question starts to be "What would they do to get it?" Was the sale of their African investment a bribe? Are they Japan-aligned or did decades of freeze-out embitter them to be a foe? What leverage do they have? What leverage do they need? Just how many 'runners are being hired by Mr. Johnson right now, all over the world, to get the job done?
(Because, at the end of the day, that's the big question ... how do the players at your table get involved? How does this generate runs for the characters?)
Love their logo, personally. Wonder what it'd look like in full color...
