>>>>>[Kage, do you have any specifics on this stuff? We have multiple reports of them causing weird sh!t, but none of the samples that were brought in confirmed anything. I ran some simulations, and it seems that according to the reports we have, every 13-th bar is 'active'. We have a whopping 10k for every sealed container of this stuff, and even more for any info on the manufacturer. Oh, and I've heard that there's a way to purge the effects with some kind of advanced 'cleaning' magics.]<<<<<

>>>>>[I ate just one, as I was resting and had nothing else at the time. Hazards of the job, so I am told. The Brotherhood? Ah, yes, magic's answer for insects. Nasty creatures. I am surprised Nature does not an a counter for them. Hmm, perhaps shadowrunners are Nature's counter. Nature does abhor a vaccum. And how did you post a day before I did, NisSayer? I am not well versed in hacker skills, but that is one I may need to learn]<<<<<

>>>>>[From what I've gathered (which isn't much, unfortunately), the bars aren't being produced by any Dragons that I know of. The talislegger I mentioned remembers the soup kitchen food and the "royal jelly" the bugs used to feed their queens. This reminded me of a story an old runner told me about the simsense start Euphoria. He claimed that she was possessed of a Ant Queen after eating some of that Amber Gel crap they sold years ago (before that Mikey kid died when he ate some and drank Caff-Pow at the same time).]<<<<<

 >>>>>[Bugs and dragons? Now there is a scary thought, but I don't think we have to wrorry. With a few rare exceptions, bugs don't play well with non-bugs. And I doubt dragons are stupid enough to deal with them; the chance for things going catastrophically wrong is too great, even for them. Still, this "magic candy bar" may warrant looking into and I have a couple good chums of mine who've been bored lately. I'll pass this on.]<<<<<

>>>>>[That's because I can bend space and time. But seriously, I was working around a nasty worm that somehow wiggled in through our system, and had to play with time settings. A trick as old as computers are. Not malicious, just irritating. I guess someone just loves pranks. I hope he'll like mine.
And as for the whole candy bar stuff, I was wrong. It was more like every 20-something-ish bar. And they do contain some kind of tainted magic. Stay clear of the stuff. And Dragons don't have anything to do with it. Bravo, tell your chums if they want, S-K looks for freelancers to deliver the person responsible for manufacturing these bars. Alive and relatively unharmed...]<<<<<

>>>>>[I've said 'worm' like in 'virus', but yeah, one of the more tricky ones. Somebody doesn't like us, apparently. And we're such a nice bunch. Besides that, I've managed to purge the system. If anyone has problems with 'NtK+WW-00' worm, give me a call, I'll handle it.]<<<<<

>>>>>[ I have heard of some odd characters running the shadows of Seattle. I have heard of 2 gorillas, running in different circles. In another group, a Bigfoot, a pixie, and a blue dwarf calling himself Papa Smurf. Have any of you run with these guys? Are they worth having on a team?.]<<<<<

>>>>>[ Knuckles is a good asset to have on the team. Papa Smurf is a lumberjack and a medic. He carries a chainsaw in a medkit. The pixie is a good martial artist. I not would speak ill of them if I was a small animal.]<<<<<
