"I think we're done here at the apartment.  We are getting ready to meet with a contact about the Shango ego.  Wish us luck.  The last time I met with this contact, things did not turn out...........as expected."

"Jeeves should have sent all of you an encrypted packet by now.  Your muses will have the key to un-encrypt.  They are e-copies of the documents we found.  I believe some of you have already started looking into them."

"Ace is inside." Oriole adds to the banded conversation. "Friction is right, we cannot access until the real Aghassi leaves and we should not stray too far while one of our men is in a delicate area. In the meantime I have first person information coming to me at a ramen stand in just under thirty minutes that should explain more about why there is a media lockout. I find this information to be strategically vital if we are to anticipate our next move. Luck be with you, Reaver, keep in touch and we'll update you when we have more information as well. Anticipate a new revision of our mission status within the half-hour."

[Ripley, can you decrypt and load the documents to my entropics? I may be the only scientist amongst this group, so I'd like us to maintain an optimal state.]

"Friction, how do you intend to impersonate Aghassi? Do you have the ability to modify your body to match his configuration?" Oriole asks, pauses, and then speaks up again. "Ace, please be careful. I may not be able to pass the biometric scans to rescue you if you become endangered. I would assume you're being watched very closely."

Khalil answers Oriole while walking back to his cycle. "I have the proper implants that will allow me to copy his appearance. My biggest issue would most likely be the biometric reader and actually hacking into his computer. But that's why we have you right Oriole? We will need a layout of the building to find his office so I'll make some calls and see if someone has a map they can send us. I'll also check around for someone with access codes we don't have to tamper with the locks."

Upon arrival at lab/workspace. Ace stops dead in his tracks, looking at his surroundings with (manufactured) wonder, before shaking his head and turning to the cephalopodian scientist and shrugging, holding his hands up in a gesture of surrender. "What machine?" He goes so far as to offer a conspiratorial wink.

"More seriously though, thanks again, Doctor. I hope he left some clues about where he went, probably on the computer there, knowing him." If he can, he'll access the computer and see if he can't find anything interesting pertaining to Reb. Contacts, notes to self, journal documentation, that kind of thing. Nothing proprietary or 'classified' if he can help it, what with Yamaguchi in the place and watching over him.

The mysterious red box gets a good look-at, too.

"Heh. Anyone ever tell you that you use way too many words to say something simple, Oriole? Anyway, I'll be fine. Don't plan on doing anything that'll get me in trouble anyway. Should have access to Reb's computer in a few, will keep you updated."

((Anything I need to roll to get any information outta this stuff, lemme know, and I'll be more'n happy to throw some dice down.))

Ace picks up what looks like a small red case. It is sealed, and there is no apparent way of opening it. Stamped on the box is a silver symbol of a key. (⚷)

[OOC] Research to find out what it is, or Networking: Criminals or Media to ask someone who might know what it is. Complementary skill can include Profession: Police Procedures for the Research test. You can also take a picture of it and send it to the others.

Riveira's terminal sits with an idle animation on the screen. As Ace goes to interact with it, Yamaguchi moves forward. "If you need to check the terminal, I'll use it. No offense, corporate policy mind you. I don't have Reb's access codes but I can check public information such as his last activities and any resources he may have requested, if that's what you want."

----

Khalil finds a former TTO security guard whom got fired for revealing minor classified information. "I've got the layouts, but it ain't gonna be free. A thousand credits, non-negotiable."

[OOC] Giving it to you because of the Networking: Hypercorps roll you had already made after the briefing. You can buy it for 1,000 credits or burn 5 rep. It will give you +20 to infiltration checks in the building.

"Would you? I'd appreciate it." Ace nods amiably, stepping back and away from the terminal. He's no slouch with tech (no-one was, these days, 'cept for those crazy survivalists), but he isn't exactly a specialist either. While Doc-Oc gets his terminal usage on, he'll busy himself mulling over what exactly this mysterious red box could be. Hopefully, somewhere in the years of public service, he's come across something similar. . .

Profession: Police Procedure (55) Rolling 1d100:
(1): Total = 1


Research: (20) Rolling 1d100:

"Found somethin' interesting at Reb's workspace. Little red case, has the image of a key on it in silver, case itself is red, no obvious means of opening it. I should have access to Reb's basic terminal history shortly. "

Ace remembers from his police days that certain smugglers and dark-market couriers would be assigned packages like these. They are made of a resistant smart metal, which would read the fingerprints off the person holding it and "unfold" upon recognizing certain fingerprints. If broken, the contents within would immediately be damaged or disassembled by nanites. However, a skilled hacker could make the case "think" that it had been unlocked, effectively breaking the opening mechanism without triggering the disassembling nanites.

Yamaguchi moves to the terminal and places a tentacle over the terminal screen. "Ah, it looks like Reb's information is encrypted. No problem, I know a list of cyphers that he uses, should be no problem to check." Yamaguchi is silent for a few moments, obviously processing the information. "Reb's last activity on the network was on the day that he was last here, August 21st. He entered at 0807, at 8031 he seems to have used a deconstructor to break down some sort of biological material for study, looks like a type of plant or similar. At 8040 he deconstructed a nanorobot, apparently trying to see what it was programmed to do. Logs out at 9007. No further activity." Yamaguchi removes his tentacle from the screen. "Not much else other than that."

[OOC] Oriole and Friction can give me Idea checks to see if they can think of another plan for obtaining the information on Aghassi's terminal.

Oriole stops at the side of the street, throwing his Comfurt cup into a trash can. "Yes, I have been told that before, Ace. I will try to minimize my replies if you would prefer."

"I have thirty minutes until my contact is ready to be met, so we may have some time. The biometric scanners are going to be an issue without tampering with them. Ace, are you recording your path towards his desk? Try and see if you can get a look at the door to the lab he works at." Oriole adds, scrunching up his brow in what he's experienced to be a display of deep thought. "The best overall option, if we can find it, is to get access to any sort of system that authenticates IDs. I'm sure the two of you could do the lying for all three of us, right? It's not my strong suit. Let me think here..."

Having figured out the mystery of what exactly the box is, Ace quickly makes use of his well developed skills in sticking things into his pockets, honed over many years of handling and storing such hazardous devices as keys and slips of paper to, while Yamaguchi is still busy on the terminal, secret the case on his person.

"It's fine, Oriole. Say what you need to say to get what you want to get across, everyone has their quirks. Found a case usually used by smugglers and people carrying things they don't want accessed in here, gonna try and get it out. I'm sure one of you guys should be able to crack it. If not, I can probably pull a few strings, get someone around who can. 'Til then, I'll do what I can. "

Now, all the detective has to do is get out of here with the case safely stored. Time 'fer the 'ol 'baffle them with bullshit' routine.

"Alright, well, that's not a whole lot to go on, but it's better than nothing. Thanks, Doctor Yamaguchi. I guess that's all I can do or need here. Should I leave myself, or are you going to accompany me out?" While he talks, Ace angles his body just right to obscure any view of where the case used to be, if at all possible.

"So, I've been wondering, if it's not too personal. . ." Ace pauses, as if figuring out just how to phrase things.

"How's the octomorph? I hear the lack of bones 'n all makes it real easy to get comfortable in odd places. Like, y'ever been stuck in an economy car for an hour, with your knees at your chin, almost? Bet it'd be much less terrble, y'know, without knees."

For a brief moment, Ace considers bringing up how he's heard women of the Asian variety evidence a fondness for such sleeves, but he rapidly disregards that, as Yamaguchi would probably be horribly offended.

(OOC: I'll burn the 5 rep. It's easier to make up with a rez point)

Khalil can't believe his luck with finding an up to date layout of the whole building and quickly accepts the exchange. He then contacts his teammates with the info to see if it is of any help.

I have a layout of the building and I'm sending it to both of you now. If we look over the plans together we should be able to figure out a way of getting into and out of the building quickly and quietly. Preferably with the information in Aghassi's office. Oriole can you get the biometrics open if given enough time? We should be able to buy that for you.

Oriole thinks of a better idea than to infiltrate the whole way towards Aghassi's terminal, which might be behind several high security scanners and sensors, which would be to get inside the network of the offices and hack their way digitally to the information. With Friction's newly acquired building layouts and with help from Oriole, Ripley and Coza, he could get to a terminal in the building and hack it to gain access to the office's network.

Khalil quickly finds several ventilation shafts, accessible from the public restrooms. Using a few security countermeasures and following the shaft, Khalil could easily get to the ventilation system controls, and from there to the internal network.

----

"Well, you could say that I've had a few cases where my limberness has proven quite useful. My ex-wife for instance..." He chuckles softly, his eyes smiling. "I'm sorry, shouldn't bring that up. Anyways, yes, I would be the one to escort you out." Yamaguchi starts hobbling his way to the door to the corridor with a previously unseen happy bounce to his gait.

As you travel down the corridor, Yamaguchi says "You know, I am interested in knowing what you manage to find during this investigation. Reb and I have been friends for some time now, and since he's not around the research has been stalled. I also see myself having more free time in my hands... errr... tentacles. I guess I just prefer to have something to work on rather than free time. If I find anything else out, I'll be sure to let you know." As he says this, Ace recieves a friend request from Yamaguchi, as well as a Like from his reputation network.

[OOC:] Ace gains +2 c-rep, and now he can communicate with Yamaguchi at any time. Also, I wanted to know if you spent that Moxie point in the Research check. I didn't know, so I didn't give you the information on what was inside the case.

"On second thought..." Oriole says, moving to lean against the garbage can. "I could use those floorplans to find his terminal on their network and access it, or better one of us could with the help of myself, Ripley, and perhaps Coza. Friction, I'd need you to find a way to a terminal in a quiet location, accessible through your floorplans. Can you do this?"

He pauses, turning his head to look up the street in the direction of the ramen stand.

"I'm looking at the floorplans now. The only way I can get past the biometrics would be to input your information as an acceptable pass configuration for the biometric scanners. New user information is likely to be scrutinized by their network AI or network teams. Friction? I'm seeing a series of ventilation shafts accessible from the public restrooms in the lobby, which are likely to not have cameras. Let's move to the restrooms and sweep for sensory dust and then try to get to a terminal from there."

With that, Oriole puts his hand to his stomach as if he has a stomach ache, and turns towards the lobby's doors.

"Hah!" Ace snorts, clapping the octomorph on the back. "You, I like. I'll keep you updated on anything I find, if I can manage to find anything. " The detective nods, walkin' along with his newfound tentacled pal.

"Thanks again, Doctor. Between the two of us, I'm sure we'll be able to track Reb down." He happily accepts the friend request, mentally moving Yamaguchi from the 'target to be pumped for information' category and to the 'buds' listing.

[OOC:] I'll pass on spending the moxie point this time. Sorry for any confusion.

Khalil rubs his chin as he thinks about the plan. Ok, so let me break this down. First we check the bathrooms for sensors, then we go through the vents from there and use them to find our way to Aghassi's office? Or are we taking the vents to another terminal to so I can be recognized by the system and just walk there?
