Be hard to let Aztec go, been such a good boogie man for several decades of game time.
A new mover, an unexpected shakeup or last minute twist with its roots in Boston.  Now that I could work with.
Whats that Big D's spirit comes back and orchestrates a takeover of Ares, cures CFD. ( I know tinfoil hat plotline but an extreme example.)
Why do things happen the way they happen? For
all I know the world Is Just one big game and all of
our actions are determined by the roll of a die.

One day, I'll post my proposed finale for the CFD storyline. But that's neither here nor there. :)

Once MP drops, I'm going to go through what was cut from my chapter (I messed up! I thought I had 20,000 words but only had 10! The editing pen shows no mercy when you double things!) ... stuff I can recycle into a fuure book I'll keep, but the stuff that I can't (Mostly jokes, but not entirely!) I'll see about posting here. Because some of it was funny, durnit. But word count is a harsh, harsh mistress. I totally understand, but I'm willing to give you a lil' bit for free. 'Cause I love you guys.

But as someone mentioned (on another thread, I guess), they are still holding all of those loans that Bank of America purchased to leverage control over CATCo and paying them off now that they own a lot of those CATCo assets. They can't just spin off the debts into separate entities and write them off because Ares is its own biggest creditor.
Huh?

While they totally can spin such loans off into separate companies, they sure have little point in doing so first because it would be hard to find a buyer for a borrowing position with no collateral assets, and then because it would be totally pointless for them to sell borrowing positions they happen to be the lender to someone who could actually default for real

The Ares group is the lender and the borrower here. First, they own the bank: BoA could simply grants new loans to Cross former companies indefinitely to allow them to repay older loans (what is usually shortened as "renegotiating") and keep things going foreover. Then, in the possible situation such loans would go beyond what banking regulations allow BoA to perform (I assume such regulations still exist, ikely in the hands of the Corporate Court), the Cross former companies could simply default on their loans, and BoA file a petition of "involuntary bankruptcy" to foreclose on any available assets. Which would just move assets from one part of Ares to another.

Except for the part where debt needs to be repaid with karma along with the nuyen, I don't know about anything that would make things different in SR.

D'Oh! Brain fart.

On the one hand, SCIENCE!

On teh other hand, I like this job.

You'll forgive me if I lean towards the latter. :)

(But Market Panic should be landing Soon (tm), so then everyone'll be all together and shiny and happy.)

Your offer intrigues me, and I would like to know more. I see a clause forbidding "actual harm or injury," but tell me, what about mental trauma?
