Did not know that SR had Dune size worms...
Well, who really knows what is going on in the Mojave? Manastorms and unfriendly natives could do a lot to hide something like that.

Now if they find some new BAD in the desert...

Per RNB on Facebook, looks like "Hazard Pay" :)

Nailed it.

Got my first cheque, but it didn't include hazard pay.

You'd have to go back to the 4th world to catch its name.  The dune worm sized Horror is called Ubyr, and it has Xenomorph acid for blood and drains the life force from its victims and relentlessly hunts down anyone who actually manages to escape its coils.
There is no overkill.

Only "Open fire" and "I need to reload."

Could be a Mongolian Death Worm. Looking at the picture somebody's shooting it in the "face" with a firearm that appears to have an underbarrel grenade launcher.
REJOICE! For bad things are about to happen.

Wait, so horrors that big are already back in this world?  And they're intelligent enough to do that?

I thought the first wave of horrors after the bugs was supposed to be mindless eaters.

The plans have been...  Adjusted.

It's up to future history to see what happens next, as the details have been manipulated exceptionally.

Any info out there if we get news about the olympic games? Will there be zero-g games in the year '74 (Evo Shibanokuij Orbital Ressort)?

Damn, I was really hoping you guys wouldn't do that.  If you bring the horrors, (the smart, powerful, capable ones) back too quickly, there's no bigger threats for you to bring in.  I was at least hoping that Catalyst would save the return of the mindless horrors for later, hell, even another edition (as a new edition is always accompanied by a time skip, and let's face it, there's always room to improve an RPG).  It just doesn't sit right with me for all the horrors to be coming back within the first century of the new age.

Some of the intelligent horrors have already made it through. They got put away again, but that's not the point. And there are forces on this side that aren't exactly unopposed to the Horrors coming back sooner than they ought. *cough*SmokingMirror*cough*

Just do what we have done everytime: Ignore the plot. Ignoring it in the same way I for my group will ignore a potential vampire plot.

Meh. Some people just can't handle not knowing what will happen. I like these unknowns that are popping up.
