>>>>>[Way I heard it, some Humanis thugs hit a bar he was at in the Underground. By rights, he should be dead, as I heard they made a big enough blast to put a hole in the world. As is, all I heard is that he needs to regrow a few limbs.]<<<<<

>>>>>[Does anyone have any idea what Humanis is up to? I hear about weapons shipments vanishing in the Barrens, a troll shaman (follows gator, go figure) told about how Humanis have run metahumans out of a neighborhood and now that area has the stench of humans. I understand some of what he said, and took no insult about the stench of humans, but it sounds like maybe Humanis planning something big. Besides blowing up an ork bar, I mean. Funny, they didn't try that at the Big Rhino. Anyways, if anyone gets wind of a job against them, drop me a line. ]<<<<<

>>>>>[I don't know anything about Bull's whereabouts. But if Bull blew up in a bar... there's no way this is some random Humanis bombing and it probably means he finally found something to use against them.

Tsssk! Bombs... What an unsophisticated, unreliable and sloppy way of killing someone. Amateurs these Humanis pricks.]<<<<<

>>>>>[Also a good way to cause collateral damage, which is exactly in the Extremist Humanis Handbook.  My Uncle took a copy and beat a couple of punks with it until they were unconscious.  It's an interesting read, even if they do screw up how to make home-made thermite.

>>>>>[Good to see someone taught you the classics, Murphy.

And we don't know whether Bull was the target. That's the fun thing about bombs. Sure there happened to be a big name fixer there. But it wouldn't be the first time some of these morons blew up a building just to see trogs die. We need more intel before we jump to conclusions.]<<<<<

>>>>>[Uncle Murphy preferred Carl von Clausewitz's "On War", but I found that Sun Tzu's "Art of War" worked better in the current day and age.  And Footwork was the first jobs Uncle gave me, so I know how important it is.  I got a lot of contacts from doing that stuff, kids like me back in the day.  That's the joy of being an ork, lots of family to call upon.]<<<<<

>>>>>[MacCallister is ok.  At least as ok as the old man gets.  He purchased The Gold Mine along the Tourists' Highway in the Underground last month after Johnny Torinni disappeared.  Still trying to figure out where he went.  Anyway, Humanis decided to take him out, along with the runner team he was working with.  Fortunately, like all bigots, they're dumber than a bag of hammers and their explosives went off early.  Still killed 14 of the Mine's employees and two innocent bystanders.  Racist sons of bitches.]<<<<<
