I am thinking Deus is dead, though stranger things have happened. I was thinking more on the lines of Sojourner. He did afterall take over an Azzie orbital.

Think he meant Dunklezahn. He's still probably out on the bridge holding off the Horrors. He would have the body to to it though who knows what the Azzies stuffed in Billy.

Yeah.  Dunkie's old handle on Shadowland was "The Big D".  Not exactly a secretive name.  But it certainly fit the person that would become The Presidential Dragon.

But, yeah, not likely to be him.   :'(

So many gone.  I cried when I found out Wedge and Ricky Ratboy died...

Well, that's something Shadowrun has over a good number of fictions.  Characters come and go due to a variety of reasons.  Rarely retirement (Raises a glass for The Chrome Accountant), and usually the hard exit (Pours a 40 on the curb.).

Is it too meta to think that maybe it's the guy who is releasing all the Jackpoint info to you, the reader, scrubbing his own name first?

Yeah... too meta.. and not even close to satisfying.

Here's a thought, from the section on Aztlan in the unpublished and much maligned SoLA, one Salai cuts though Captain Chaos's security to post info about The Smoking Mirror and Aztechnology's more sordid details.
Some of that info is re-printed in Corporate Guide, where most folks, including Pyramid Watcher, dismiss it as a Conspiracy theory, except one Jane "Frosty" Foster, who has a 'friend' who would really like to see the original message.

Anyone have any info on who that Salai might be? If it is the original poster of the Smoking Mirror document, he may be dead, but he could be MOSTLY dead.

Salai? That's Michelangelo's assistent! Michaelangelo the Immortal Elf from the similarily much maligned Black Madonna novel, that is, also known under his net nickname Brightlight. Of course said Elf was later retconned to be just a fanbody of the real Michelangelo, taking on his name, and not the historical real deal - but in any case, Salai did escape Lofwyr's murder of Brightlight, didn't he? So it must be him! And he's an otaku techwiz who has learned from who was the most tech-savvy IE, so he should be able to cut through net security well enough. And of course, given what happened to his mentor he would have a motivation to hide.

So, yeah, that's Salai. But what has he to do with Atztech?

Speaking of Shadows of Latin America, did it become available and where can I get a copy?

SoLA never came out.  You can't get a copy.  It's a bad idea to mention it on message boards.  Rabid Fanboys live here.

Ugh. On both counts. At least the Sixth World Almanac covered abit on Amazonia and I've got the old Aztlan book.
