"Listen kid, you're so jacked up on tech shit you can't see straight, but there's a dead cop in the room and you've got to run. Don't worry, every agent has made a bad transaction. Now beat it, I've got your back on this one kid. Trust me."

You've just killed someone, or so you've been told. Frankly the last couple days have been a blur since the implants kicked in, and you're on the long installment plan. Fucking street docs. Now you're on the run, in debt, and in need of a check up. Better get going -- no one likes a cop killer.

---

The year is 2145, and the world is engulfed in darkness. Deregulation's promise of a better tomorrow meant vast wealth for some, and acid rain for the rest of us. Those with the real money left years ago, but their business interests remain on Earth. That's where you fit into this mess.

You're an agent for hire, doing the bidding of some rich Johnny Nobody cruising around in his space yacht, or whatever it is they do off planet. But don't think you'll be phoning up the twenty billion dollar man looking for work; all transactions happen through an operator. It's the operator's job to dispense assignments to agents in the field, and more importantly it's the operator that makes sure you get paid.

By the books, nice and clean, plausible deniability. That is until some Ape Johnston like you comes along and kills a cop. That's what agents call a bad transaction. Have too many bad transactions and you'll become a loose end that needs to be cleaned up by some bounty hunter cowboy. Keep a steady grip, don't overboard on those implants, and you'll do just fine kid.
