The world is full of shadows. The runners live in this twilight, the space between bright lights, the cracks of society where light never reaches. It can lead to a sense of camaraderie, a sense of us-against-them. It can make you forget that the cracks are full of mercenaries who are in this game to make money and not die in the process. Mercenaries who don't care about you - don't think you're worth a damn and will sell you out if it profits them.

The Wire, a matrix unknown with an icon like swirled, gnarled tangles of barbed wire, holds an online auction for information - solid, verified information - about the location of Lazarus 'Tonka' Jones. Bidding climbs from 1000 nuyen, swiftly to a ceiling of 30,000 nuyen. 30,000 nuyen is the value of someone's life. Their allies lives. Their home.

It doesn't take long for it to filter through the professional bounty hunters who are flocking to the area. Be on the look out for Alexandra 'Gemini' Beddleton. For Henry 'Knox' Rydell. Lazarus was seen in the Cranks not more than 10 hours ago and was maintaining a safe house.

Now is the time for fear.
