Loyalty 6 is back-to-the-wall, friend-for-life, goes-to-the-mattresses. Your best friend for twenty years, the wookiee whose life you saved from imperial stormtroopers, and so on. Getting them to turn on you would be hard, mechanically and from a story perspective. I have two high end contacts like that, and neither of them are very powerful. They're Nightshade's friends and lovers, not business associates.

The urge to grab friends in High Places and snag a maxed-out C8 contact like Blackwing or somesuch, though...it was hard to resist temptation. Ditto for buying

LG/C8 - Syndicate: Ghost Cartels
LG/C8 - Syndicate: Vory
LG/C8 - Syndicate: Finnegan Mafia
LG/C8 - Syndicate: Shotozumi-Rengo
LG/C8 - Syndicate: Red Dragon Triad

Somehow, I managed to resist.

@Adamu: You are welcome, sir! I tried to frontload them as much as possible. Especially Jenny. I'm sure that shadowrunner-wannabe idiocy is going to get her (or me) into trouble.

Well, RaiderJoseph - it pretty much means what the book says - they'd probably die for you...if you bought them with your own points.

Contact Bios

Marjorie, where to begin at one time I pushed my luck into getting in the sack with her. That fiasco is now the basis of my understanding of Don't crap where you eat. She's a good woman, strong, intelligent and built like a brick... Well you know. I joined up with her when I turned 19, fresh out of jail and looking for a way to get up in the world. She taught me to survive on   (C2/L3)

Caleb is the man I owe my life to. The only Breed... Human that I don't have a problem with. Other then being a cop he's good. He's gotten me out of a tight situation but I've promised myself not to ask him for any favors til I can pay him back. He couldn't do anything about me being locked up but honestly I doubt he even knew I was in the compound. Lone Star doesn't play as big a role in police activity but it's always helpful to know when a team is gunning for you.   (C2/L4)

Anselmo is a Fixer I met in the crime mall.  I was trying to find a new place to make a living but that place is hit and miss.  Anselmo saw an opportunity, in a young troll that didn't have much. At least he couldn't see what else Black had stashed. Anselmo didn't flinch at the odorous troll standing in his doorway. He hooked Black up with drugs to turn a profit. He calls every three days to find out what his money maker is doing. Hasn't been disappointed yet, but is hesitant to give Black another outlet of opportunity.    (C3/L1)

Free 40

Sly is the Armadillo Club owner. She took over not long after Smeland's passing. She lets Black hang outside, so long as he doesn't bother her operations. She frequently deals with Mafia higher ups. She doesn't tell Black much but sometimes will give him a heads up for a mark or if the cops are going to bust in the door. (C5/L4)

Paul is a mafia consiglieri, he bounces around to any nightclub worth a damn, but he seems to be sitting at The Armadillo lately. He has his fingers, in plenty of aspects. But now he seems focused on Black. (C6/L1)

Leif is a bartender at The Big O, he give Black a drink for free, "Sometimes" and will give the occasional tip about a high roller looking for fun. He's good at what he does, but isn't cheap. You give him an extra tip he might forget your name, what you look like. Hell he might have come down that night, and he was so drunk he can't remember. (C3/L5)

James is Redmond's premier transportation specialist. In other words he drives a taxi. He does keep you safe with bulletproof windows and doors, and if it gets bad enough he's not scared to drop a few frag grenades out the window. He's been a good friend to Black when he's around. Just don't call him a taxi driver, he likes Chauffeur much better. (C1/L6)

Lucy, if you looked up Pragmatist in an encyclopedia chances are you'd see her face. Hostage situation? Sure call the negotiator get the perp talking. Meanwhile I want a sniper on that roof outfitted with stick and shock ammo. Sure, you'd probably end up with a tased hostage, but that's better than a dead one.
She's also known to sell K-E good at a discounted rate being the Supply Sarge she has access to the entire armory. Black doesn't come to meet her in Renton, she comes to designated location and goods and Nuyen are transferred.  (C6/L3)

@Adamu: RJ shows keen survival instincts!

@Bart: Not to nitpick, especially since you don't explicitly say that Theresa is Theresa Smeland, but TS has been dead for about five years now. Might consider changing it to Sharon Louise "Sly" Young.

The dumpshock from trying to the Z-O node with Sharon kept her in a coma. She was on life support for a long time, but she finally kicked. The armadillo has an entry in Seattle 2072.

Damn. I need to catch up, to many years out of the shadows and I don't know anything anymore.

I'm learning by inches as I go. There's still a few things you can count on in the Barrens, though. Mostly the gangs.

Oh yeah, the D's are still around. Still duking it out with the First Nations, too. Halloweeners, Cutters, Crimson Crush...that part, at least, is still the same drekshow it always was.

Is it really that important to be able/willing to use Dumpshock as well? It's just that I intentionally left there for a reason (and actually went so far as to request my account be deleted).
