Ok, Chummeros. Anyone have any hard paydata on Assets by 2070? I heard that Quicksliver is likely goin' after his lady love after her dissappearing act, but what about the rest of the crew or the organization itself?

Assets, INC. was disbanded after most of the members were killed, but the decker Peg created a replacement group called DAMAGE. Argent sometimes works with them, but is mostly retired. (As of 2064, Loose Alliances, p. 132)

Always sad to see the Heroes of past times get old. Good to see that some actually DO get old, though.

DAMAGE got formed by Peg after the Wrecking Crew was destroyed. AFAIK there is no crossover with Assets, INC.

Well, DAMAGE is the former motto (Drastic Assault Measures And Global Engagements) of the Wrecking Crew.

Yes it was. Assets INC and the Wrecking Crew were two different teams. Wrecking Crew had Argent, Peg, Toshi, and Hawk(?). While Assets INC had(has?) Ryan Mercury, Kaitlin Axler, Grinder, a bunch of dead mages, and Jane-in-the-box.

Are we having some kind of miscommunication?

D'OH!  ;D

The neurons fired, I know they're two separate things, but signals got crossed when I was responding...

*ahem*

Yes, nothing's been mentioned about Assets Inc. since Nadja Daviar went missing at the attempted military coup of the UCAS.

(and the first one that cracks wise about my age... )

Thanks all. So do we have a confirmed body count on Axler, Grinder, et al?

Axler is still alive. She is still working for the Draco Foundation as head of security I believe. A drawf matching Grinder's discription is active as well but it never states it's him just a black dwarf with 3 arms. I'll check for the specific references.

EDIT- Hmm... can't find any info on either at the moment. I could have sworn I read that Axler was working for the DF or DIMR as head of security, and about a 3 armed dwarf still running about. They were both really quick references though.

I'm going through some of my books for references in another project. If I find anything, I'll be sure to post it here.




... and Doc? Did you really want me to post that picture of you and that Kitteh protosapient last month?

What... you... I... oooooh, that slimy son of a binary clock, he said that room was secure... ok ok, I'm all peaceful. Really.

On topic, looks like they cut all ties with the Assets members storylines, doubtful that we're gonna see them again.

Unless Ghostwalker decides to drop by and check on his brother's projects.

Who would say no?

so the old VP and head of the DF disapeared during the coup huh....me thinks i smell a run posibility here ;)
May god grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, to change the things I can, and the firepower to make the difference.

Suicide is never the answer, now homicide on the other hand, that has posibilities.
