You tell Shirai that you'll look into ways to make sure Macland dreams. From what you've gathered, as long as a person afflicted with Nil dreams, Nil can't strengthen its grip on their brain. You may be able to affect Macland's delta waves, or increase his DMT production, to ensure dreams. He should also keep a dream diary, and look into psychedelic drugs. It's not a permanent solution, but you have an invested interest in getting rid of Nil--this will at least keep Nil at bay until you can find a way to accomplish that.

You tell Shirai that you need information on Thale and Carpenter.

"Patton is... secretive. I've only met the man once in person, every other time it's been that creepy secretary of his. He works through proxies and obfuscates everything. I keep being surprised by how far his influence extends, and who all's actually working for him.

Carpenter's a nut job. I've gone out of my way to keep him at a distance."

You ask if Shirai has any documentation on Edison.

"That ghost girl? Nothing. Thale's secretary gave me some basic instructions and dropped the canister off. I was told to offer her needles and scarlet thread, and hope that was enough to get her to cooperate. I needed to tie up some loose ends with Detective Shaw... I thought it might get your attention, but I was a little surprised it actually worked. I wasn't sure if you were working with the feds or not. If anyone has solid information on the canister ghost, it'll be Patton Thale or his secretary. Maybe Carpenter, but they seemed hesitant to give me the can--Arvin might not be trusted enough to know about it. Lord knows I wouldn't give that psycho something like that."

You emphasize that Gesenai and Macland need to lay low, and stay under the radar.

"I hate to admit it, but Macland might be making the right call... this all sounds out of our league. I'll probably pull some funds, and the two of us will get out of the city. Where do you want me to drop your car off at?"

Drop it off at not-Walmart's parking lot?

*sigh* Man what a day.

Let's update everyone on the latest situation, and also ask Michelle and Fuse how Howler's apartment bust went.

No no no, we drop it off at, say, the hospital? It's far enough away that they can't locate the bunker, and they know that we've been there before because of chapter 1.

Seconded at the Not-Walmart. I guess we should.. Lay low, now? And gather some resources, or something? Unless there's another immediate plothook I'm forgetting. Be sure to tell her that Macland's out of Thale's reach, 'cause of your blood.

Also, Jane - Read those memories.

the not-walmart where they found us would be a fine place to drop the car. and it better not have any tracking devices on it, i swear to god.

ask her if she's willing to leave us any resources when she and macland get out of the city. it should be pretty easy to make it looks like we stole from her if she's interested in keeping up appearances. we are very underfunded and outgunned. if we're going to survive thale, we need all the help we can get.

I'd rather not pick up the car at the 24-hour store because the tracker was active there for a LONG time. There might be a random encounter there we'd want to avoid.
How about we just pick it up at Club Elegance? Given how easily we got in and out of that joint, I'm guessing it's free of Thale and Carpenter's monitoring AND it allows Shirai to drop off the vehicle without looking suspicious herself and possibly getting followed.
I still recommend we do a bug tracker on it before driving it all the way home. It's nice Shirai SEEMS nice, but I still don't trust her or Macland.

And then here's a list of things to do either tonight or tomorrow:
Get the story from Fuse/Michelle.
Have Fuse check for Nil.
-De-Nil Fuse OR tryout dream-drugging Fuse tonight.
Restore memories (as best as we can)
Check on the Jury repair progress.
-Give Unity her name.
-Bring Jury back if fixed.
--Ask Jury about Section Z50 project Edison and possibly Nil (if that was a Section Z50 project).

Since I'm on the subject of things-to-do, our current side projects (as far as I can remember them):
Explore the Mars plant room.
Look into Southern Pass/Reigns.
Look into/plan infiltration of the Queen production place.
Find a way to restrain Edison and attempt rehabilitation (may require info from Jury).
Look into whatever-the-Hell is in Bunker C (WILL require info from Jury).
Find a way to deal with Nil/get better with Force-syncs in general (may require info from Mom's Red).

How about a thank-you, Gesenai ?
You still owe us, btw. We could use some free access into your real estate records.
