A Sci-Fi/Cyberpunk Story
Episode 1: A new Beginning
Skyline City, a normal... city can say... Don't matter. A place full of technology and delightful things. Sure, if you live in the high zone, where the companies and high rank people lives without worry. But if you live in the lower zones... that goes on your luck. Zone X, the place who nobody wants to live. Marauders, informatic pirates, and any disgusting being you can imagine, you can find in Zone X. Many try to steal pieces and high valued objects which goes to High Zone, with the purpose of make money. But the thieves have a problem, my team.
First of all, we have Yumiko. A feline ex-arms dealer, now detaining her buyers. Incredible reflections, excellent vision, and perfect aim. Better not be on their radar. Second, Roy the Doberman. A tank of 100 kg and 1.95m. Superior strength, and a powerful nose, capable of tracking its prey from 100 meters away. And be careful if you face him. And finally there is me, Raymond the Skunk. Technopath, hacker, and team leader. No matter where you run, I'll be able to track you in 2.5 seconds, and be careful with my saber, and my tail.
Creo que ya conté lo suficiente de nosotros, excepto una cosa, nuestra base en Central Town, a unos 3 km de la Zona X. Aquí, es donde comenzamos.
I think I've told enough about us, except for one thing, our base in Central Town, about two miles from Zone X. This is where we started.
* Central room *
Roy: Hey Ray. There is no news?
Raymond: I'll say it again, nothing.
Roy: Aaagh, I just need some action. I am surprised that no incident occurs.
Raymond: I know, and it seems suspicious to me that there hasn't been a robbery in the last 48 hours.
Roy: They are your superstitions. Like sea, I'm going to see Yumiko.
Raymond: She's in the training room, you know what happens if someone walks in during her target practice.
Roy: Relax, nothing will happen. * goes to the training room
* Raymond: * sigh * Yare.
* In the Training room *
Yumiko: * shooting moving targets *
Yumiko: * shoots Roy, and almost hits him *
Roy: Aah! Be careful! Yumiko: I told you not to come in like that while I train
Roy: Now you're going to say the same as Raymond
Yumiko: We have told you several times.
Roy: Anyway, wouldn't you like to train together?
Yumiko: Okay, just don't set yourself on my goals.
* Meanwhile in Zone X *
Marauder 1: This is the cargo we must steal.
Marauder 2: But why this shipment?
Marauder 1: There is a component that is important to the boss.
Marauder 2: If it's for the boss, fine.
* A truck drives down the street in Zone X, until it is attacked by the two thugs. They break the door lock, and remove the component*
Marauder 2: We got it
Marauder 1: This will be good. 2 hours later
Officer: Another component stolen, it is the third in the month. Raymond: Apparently they are the same. They always attack on the same street.
Roy: But what did they steal? Raymond: a Dyxez controller micro chip. It is a very powerful chip, capable of handling an entire computer base of two Atena sites.
Roy: The Athena headquarters? If it is the largest computer center in Skyline city.
Yumiko: What do you want it for? And who is the buyer of that chip?
Officer: We don't know what their purpose is, but we do know that they are the Zone X pirates.
Raymond: * projecting the purchase data from his arm * And the buyer is not registered. Something's wrong.
Roy: Well ... Is there a way to stop them? Can we ambush?
Yumiko: You just have to know when the next attack is.
Raymond: There are three new shipments that will leave from the port, all of them are computer pieces. We will have to hide for a surprise attack.
Officer: We will put up a surveillance team to keep the packages safe.
Raymond: We have it. In one of those shipments we will catch them.
At the base
Yumiko: Did you check what the thieves wanted?
Raymond: not yet, there are gangs in Zone X. Some are just thieves, others are high risk.
Roy: Exotics can be, but they only want weapons and are very hard headed for technology. Orientacticals are also suspect, although it is too advanced for them.
Yumiko: There are also the Stinks, hackers for style, and the Bandits. But it can't be those two.
Raymond: In that case, it may be a new group.
Roy: what are you trying to say?
Yumiko: No gang that we know of has made these types of ambushes, or stealing high-quality materials.
Raymond: While we're still thinking about who they are, there may be another stolen shipment.
Roy: That doesn't matter, we'll stop them.
Yumiko: Like like that dealer?
Roy: He made a very high pitched sound!
Raymond: Right now, I'm going to come up with a plan to surprise the thieves. For now, stand down.
10 days later, a truck left Sonara port. Inside the truck is a TechMoss processor, capable of running the largest and most powerful computer out there. Already in its passage in Zone X ...
Marauder 1: Another component
Marauder 2: Go ahead
* The crooks get in the way of the truck *
Driver: Watch out, it's an ambush!
* A shot falls in front of the thugs, causing an explosion and the truck stops *
Marauder 2: What was that ?!
Roy: * appears behind them * So they're the ones stealing tech stuff.
Marauder 1: Shit, Hackers!
Roy: * hits the two thugs *
* the thugs draw their weapons, but are stripped by two shots *
Yumiko: * appears * Let's make it more fair
Marauder 1: This is not good.
* Roy and Yumiko fight against the two thugs, while the crew of the truck watch the fight *
???: * speaks on the radio * What's going on?
Driver: An ambush, they tried to steal the processor.
???: An ambush?
Driver: Hackers are fighting them.
* Meanwhile in the fight *
Criminals: * pull blades from their limbs *
Roy: Oh great
Marauder 2: now they will pay to interfere in our ...
Yumiko: * shoots him, taking down the thug *
Malente 1: * looks at his partner * But what?
Roy: * hits him unconscious *
Yumiko: It was too easy.
Raymond: Did you manage to stop them?
Roy: yes, we left one alive.
Raymond: All right * gets out of truck * we need it to get data.
Yumiko: Why did you have to be in the truck? And right where the box was.
Raymond: I told you, the processor had to be safe.
Roy: It sounds like you don't want to be in action.
Raymond: Not true, * draws his saber * I wouldn't have lost to one of them. Let's take the suspect and get the cargo to its destination.
The cargo was kept safe until its destination, but the Animal Hackers loomed an even greater danger. A figure who was looking at them from afar, and who is not very pious. A threat that we still do not know.
???: So those two failed me. What a disappointment. It doesn't matter, the following ones won't let me down. And soon, Skyline city will succumb to my hands.
