Collateral: Snowflake was kidnapped by the Croki after he was recognized at a bar trying to catch surveillance on her. Unfortunately for the Croki, her mind probe was passively resisted by the sodium pentethol patch she had to apply to him in the bathroom in haste before kidnapping him out of the bar and returning with him to her lair. The croki, recognizing a corporate SINner, SURGEr, and magically talented individual, bartered Snowflake's compulsed and bewitched soul to pay for her own material debt. Unable to approach the soul issue, the Jarl settled with a dream pact, eager to take revenge against Horizon for his losses in the casinos of Las Vegas.
Synopsis: Runners were paid to surveil a relationship with a believed 'cheat' or possible 'honeypot' situation for a VIP. Prior legal methods of surveillance had failed. RUnners IDd the Johnson as undercover UCAS or governmental security by the end of the meet, but accepted the Job anyway as as they were unsure whether or not this actually was a ploy or protection for the VIP. They discovered and elaborate scheme by Dawkins infiltrators to use hostile possession to turn Tif, and then the VIP, to working for them, gaining access to secured information from both companies - EVO (Tif) and FedBo (VIP). Their VIP turned out to be an elevated clone batch from an early UCAS military breeding project; Tif had been hostile possessed by a Croki for months, and the military had been systematically wiping and brainwashing the VIP to prevent data breach while attempting to counter-surveil the honeypot situation. While Snowflake and Raptor provided some real world recon, the deckers kept the show running with the pertinent surveillance information. The team finally ID'd the pickup-team for Tif's infodumps, and the fact Tif was possessed at all - after a number of infosearches, drone pursuits and a bad time at a bar for Snowflake, resulting in new problems. After collecting a majority of evidence, the Deckers decided to risk it all in the final hours and dive the foundation of the facility they saw the infodump agent disappear into; after ID'ing the team in the archive, the team quickly absconded, leaving personal anchors until the next cyclical metaphor change might prompt the spiders to clear out all the anchors.
Special Rewards: Slicer subsitutes 8000 nuyen from the reward as an extra payment for preparations from contact Taka Hayakawa, raising loyalty +1
Special Rewards: Snowflake charged 12 RVP from run reward; receives contact Jarl Earlbach (6/1, Free Spirit, Service: Magical Advice, Power: Dream Pact), Solid Rep: EVO SURGED, pays double income tax on SINner quality this month, knowledge skill: Seelie Court [chosen link], knowledge skill specialization [Fae] for Spirits.
Background All characters in this story have extremely long backstories; Tif has been acting weirder and weirder, according to her significant other, the VIP, for the last few months. The VIP believes some kind of malfeasance may be going on at a corporate level and wants this investigated after her legal P.I.s have their equipment destroyed. Meet Downtown Seattle, 'THE JERKZ CHYKN SHAACK' Run Hx61 lead T6's and profiling attempts on the VIP and the secondary to get a clearer picture of the minor datafiles they had been handed by the J. After checking out some minor hosts around the subjects, the hackers collated with the physical team's reconnaissance efforts. Raptor planted some surveillance drones outside the property line, while Snowflake got a closer look at the property. Located in a AAA corporate park, the property had some nice defense, but the runners waited a little while to check out some of the other linked properties in the neighborhood. Eventually, simple surveillance and persistence gave them a detailed picture of people entering the property as shapeshifters while the VIP was at work, and the various functionalities of quite a few hosts surrounding the access of these individuals to corporate servers. When Hx summons a guidance spirit, the auguries point towards some sort of astral phenomenon and a possible influencing hand in the situation. Their deepest fears were realized, however, when the team celebrity - Snowflake - was kidnapped by the Croki and ransomed to a Jarl Fae while attempting to ID her magical signature up close. The rest of the team were unable to provide timely rescue, and refused to make any further physical contact with Snowflake afterward, out of superstition. Snowflake succeeds in not having his brain probed by the Croki before sale to the Jarl, whose immediate sweet-talking and insane desire for a corp SINner attached to the biggest gambling city on the planet were too easy for the Croki to exploit. After pursuing the seconday influencers, they realized that Horizon corpsec was possibly managing Dawkins mages using shapechange spells to to avoid detection on long term counter-intelligence and contact gathering operations. Hacking the foundation, they found that Horizon had been tuning the foundation's metaphor as a Neil the Ork Barbarian Dungeons & Dragons-esque adventure, and the players took up classic Warrior, Thief, priest, and wizard roles. Slicer luckily started in the archive, keeping movement minimal; once the master node was reached, the team gave themselves beneficial metaphor sculpts, kept their variance low, and got the fuck out as quickly as possibly, planting anchors near the portal node. Aftermath Snowflake has acquired a 6/1 contact, a Jarl Fae. Slicer Purchased booster potions from Taka, boosting loyalty with a health tip. Tif will attempted to get extracted by Evo, with dire results. The croki escapes. Expenses No expenses over 1k nuyen; casual drugs.
Ok, so I am not the most creative person in the world, and certainly not artistic. It took me a while to come up with a theme and then it hit me. Why not my favorite city? I created a league based on the casinos of Las Vegas. Think of it like a casino employee rec league. Given that its Vegas, it gave me liberty to diverge from traditional baseball looks and do some different things. Some are more logo based (many of the logos are text based, making it easier), and some are more thematic. Leagin Las Vegas Teams
Ten years ago, one of my dreams was to visit USA some day. Not so much anymore.
The skyscrapers of New York, the casinos of Las Vegas, the Grand Canyon and the Redwood forests of west coast. I wanted to see them all and have taste of an american culture on the fly. Now all I can see in the news is hate, violence, fear and ignorance. I'm afraid if I don't speak fluent english, someone will tell me to go where I came from. Other people cough at others on purpose to spread the virus. I might get shot by literally anyone if I'm at the wrong place at the wrong time. I'm sorry, but the states doesn't seem to be too welcoming anymore for traveling, apart the obvious reasons and restrictions because of the covid-19.
Adelson’s Las Vegas Sands Exploring $6 Billion Sale of Vegas Casinos
(Bad) sign of things to come for Vegas? Surprised that Adelson would want to sell basically at the lows; things must be looking pretty bleak on the Strip to consider dumping Las Vegas. REAL ESTATE News Wire Company News Investing 17m ago Adelson’s Las Vegas Sands Exploring $6 Billion Sale of Vegas Casinos Gillian Tan and Christopher Palmeri, Bloomberg News Pedestrians pass in front of the Venetian Resort in Las Vegas, Nevada, U.S., on Sunday, Oct. 18, 2020. Las Vegas Sands Corp. is scheduled to release earnings figures on October 21. Pedestrians pass in front of the Venetian Resort in Las Vegas, Nevada, U.S., on Sunday, Oct. 18, 2020. Las Vegas Sands Corp. is scheduled to release earnings figures on October 21. , Bloomberg (Bloomberg) -- Sheldon Adelson’s Las Vegas Sands Corp. is exploring the sale of its flagship casinos in Las Vegas, according to people familiar with the matter, a move that would mark the mogul’s departure from the gambling mecca. The casino operator is working with an adviser to solicit interest from potential suitors, and may fetch $6 billion or more for its Vegas properties, said the people, who asked to not be identified because the talks are private. The portfolio includes the Sands Expo Convention Center, the Venetian Resort Las Vegas and the Palazzo. A representative for the company confirmed it was in very early discussions about a sale and that nothing has been finalized. A sale would result in Adelson, one of the world’s richest men, exiting the U.S., with his remaining casino assets concentrated in Macau and Singapore. Adelson is chairman, chief executive officer and a majority shareholder of Las Vegas Sands, which has a market value of $37.5 billion. The stock rose as high as 12% in after-hours trading Monday, after Bloomberg reported on the news of the deal. The stock had closed down 3.1% to $49.13. https://www.bnnbloomberg.ca/adelson-s-las-vegas-sands-exploring-6-billion-sale-of-vegas-casinos-1.1513344
TIL that in the 1990s, Las Vegas wanted to revitalize its downtown area. There was a plan to build a full scale replica of the USS Enterprise, with a bar and restaurant on top. Casinos were willing to pay for it and the city was onboard; a Paramount executive said no fearing it would be a failure.
“The Venetian” Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas has large tarps such as this one covering the construction on top of one of their buildings. At a second’s glance and because of the magnitude of size of the building, it blends perfectly into the surrounding eye-catching scenery.
Las Vegas casinos are going to be in trouble - Nevada just doubled their previous record of virus cases
Please see my edit at the bottom of this post! https://www.reuters.com/article/us-health-coronavirus-usa/florida-arizona-nevada-hit-daily-highs-for-covid-19-cases-idUSKBN23Y0MR "Nevada disclosed 1,099 new cases, double its previous high." At the height of the pandemic for New York, in the second half of March, they were averaging about 9k cases a day. New York has a population of 19.4M people, meaning roughly 1 new case every day for every 2,160 people in New York in March. Nevada, with 3M people, set a record for themselves of 1 new case for every 2,700 people. And the numbers in Nevada are increasing fast. Nevada could pass New York's worst day in per capita terms in a week. I just can't see the casinos there remaining open, and even if they do stay open, no one will want to visit from out of state. EDIT: Turns out the overly big jump on June 26 was due to data from lab reports dated 23 and 24 June being included in the 26 June total. However, the brand-new numbers reported for today, June 27th are likely a new record even though weekends are usually lower numbers. https://www.southernnevadahealthdistrict.org/news-release/public-health-update-covid-19-case-increase/ "After a review of the case data, it was determined the increase in reports was due to a delay in laboratory reporting. More than 240 of the cases reported were from laboratory reports dated June 23, and more than 380 were from reports dated June 24." Original data from: https://nvhealthresponse.nv.gov/
I manually adjusted the data, assuming a 1-day offset between lab report date and the date the info is reported by the state (moving 240 and 380 cases from June 26th to the 24th and 25th, respectively):

Adelson’s Las Vegas Sands Exploring $6 Billion Sale of Vegas Casinos
Article link: https://www.bnnbloomberg.ca/adelson-s-las-vegas-sands-exploring-6-billion-sale-of-vegas-casinos-1.1513344 I saw this posted over in investing and thought it might garner some discussion over here. It appears there is talk of Adelson leaving the US gambling scene. With his immense wealth and political sway, Adelson has been one of the biggest barriers and opponents of legal online poker in recent memory. If the sale of his Vegas properties go through, do you feel the lack of vested interest in driving patrons to gamble in person will help turn the tide of legal online poker in the US? Personally, I feel in conjunction with the health barriers being faced by gambling facilities due to the pandemic, this could present a prime opportunity for legal online poker proponents to make a meaningful push toward widespread legalization. Thoughts?
My life has officially hit rock bottom. Any thoughts?
It all started in 5th grade. My aunt whom I loved dearly and spent every visit to my grandparents with, had died. It was the night after my family left from Halloween break. it was a sordid affair, we sat down as a family after one of my baseball games and they told me and my sisters. I remember instant denial, going up to her room only to find everything cleared out. It broke my heart. I remember she had told me about her son whom she gave up for adoption because she was 16 at the time, she confessed that I was like the son she always wanted. For a time I was left to cope with it and move on. I made quite a few mistakes 6th grade year, a lot of fights and bad dating. The next event followed the summer before 8th, my grandmother was showing early signs of dementia and was in need of constant care. Luckily my grandfather was a great man, however not too much later into the year he was diagnosed with bialduct cancer and had 6 months top to live. This was the worst thing I could imagine, after my aunt died my grandfather was my number one, the person who taught me how to grow up and be a person. He was more of a father than my actual father who I live with. It turned out 6 months was a pipe dream. He died in front of me 6 days later. I was devastated, my mother started drinking the family finances went down the drain, yet this wasnt dates work, it was my horrific uncle's doing that pushed my grandfathers life before his time, he overdosed his morphine drip. After this my uncle stole my grandfather entire retirement fund, a substantial amount of money meant to be used for my grandmothers care, and squandered it in the casinos of Las Vegas with his drunk of a girlfriend, the place of residency for my grandparents. Then he locked the entire family out and away from my grandmother. I distinctly remember the only allowed contact being a brief conversation and hug over the houses side fence. It grew worse when they sold the house and took the money to move to Oregon, a place where my uncle didn't have to register as the child molester he is. Eventually through the courts my family gained guardian ship over my grandmother after he twisted her kind and verbally abused her. It was tough as a family after that taking care of her without money. Her medicine per month was 4 digits easy and Medicaid had just cancelled her services. We fell behind on house payments and the apec of our despair approached just the beginning if this recent school year back in august. My uncle dropped by on a suprise lunch visit ALL THE WAY FROM OREGON, to see my grandmother. The results of his dastardly visit were the incarceration of my parents over false charges, and the loss of our house as well as the theft of every picture we had of my grandfather grandmother and aunt. Afterwards they slandered my defenseless family through social media. That wasnt the worst of it either. Just a month into his care in oregon she suffered from a stroke. Thankfully she recovered, the reprieve was short lived though as she died under mysterious circumstances in my uncle's home. That happened less than a week ago. Whilst suffering thriugh this I dated a very selfish girl whom made me suffer and broke my heart. She turned my friends against me almost succeeded in turning my best friend against me, he suffers from depression as well and she manipulated his trust, then I found out she cheated on me as well. When I broke up with her I was shaken, her reaction shattered my already fragile state of mind, she smiled at me and without a shed of emotion looked me dead in the eyes and said "k". Last summer I tried to apologize for the few shortcomings I had in our relationship. In response she verbally assaulted me. These events have led to muscle pain due to stress and consistent nighterrors of varying images. I need some positive feedback
My email to the DCMS committee will become written evidence against lootboxes and so can yours
The DCMS (Digital, Culture, Media and Sport Committee) the same committee that heard Kerry Hopkins say lootboxes aren't gambling but "surprise mechanics" allow people to file evidence in support of the claim that lootboxes are indeed gambling. This is my email (sorry for the misspellings):
Hello My name is u/shoshke I am 31 years old, so to be a father and a gamer of well over 15 years. During this long time, in which for a short time, I was also a journalist in, I have witnessed the proliferation of microtransactions in games, sometimes to everyones advantage. Make no mistake, microtransactions are a great compromise between rising production costs of games, which can now easily exceed even Hollywood blockbuster numbers, and the price of video games which has rained almost unchanged for over a decade. However in recent years a new type of microtransactions has risen in popularity, the lootbox. And make no mistake, it was the very company that Mr. Hopkins represents, EA Games, that is the innovator in this field. FIFA's ultimate team has set the benchmark for maximizing profits with minimal investment and all to little to no benefit to the consumer. This was almost a natural evolution of the "player cards" of old. Nothing new right? After all this is how many collectable card games work, however Mr Hopkins will never bring up one thing: Unlike physical trading cards, which have a very tangible value even decades later, in EA games Franchises, this cards and boxes, which cost real money, provide the exact same feelings of excitement and disappointment, not only do not have a monetary value in the long run (albeit short term accounts are often traded), but are made obsolete once a new version of the same game is released. So not only are these mechanics NOT "quite fun" beyond the initial adrenaline impulse, they are less ethical than their physical equivalent. However none of the things mentioned are even remotely as impactful as the fact the with lootboxes, the availability and allure, especially to children, is front and center, spammed with just the right frequency of free samples, to maximize the will to buy for real money. Unlike the trading cards of ol', which would require planning, and traveling to a store near you with your parents, loot boxes are in your face from the second you start the game until you put it down, and make no mistake, Every company has invested research to find the best ways to incentivize the impressionable to buy, buy, buy except unlike the Casino's of Las Vegas, no one is checking the age and the entrance to the Casino. This is how Candy Crush Has made billions, this is why children desperately find ways to spend thousands of dollars without their parents permission, and this is why Mr Hopkins lies for his client. Because it's easy money. Thank you, I can only hope this will reach the commission.
And this is the proof This is the link with examples of written evidence And these are the guidelines I simply sent my email to the address stated under contact us because, honestly, I felt that the things Kerry Hopkins said were simply insulting to any individual with half a brain and I had some time 2 kill. I didn't expect it this to happen. My contribution will probably be a drop in a bucket but hell... let's make it an ocean to drown out the PR BS some of these companies are pushing. I share this in the hope that some of you will take it upon themselves to giver their well formulated opinion on the matter. So speak your mind and let them know how it trully is. Last note: Please do not spam them, don't make "gamers" look like entitled children with things like "fuck EA" or "Lootboxes suck". if you want to give your 2 cents invest a bit of effort and if you don't than that is fine too.
