  • "Understood, Ceres-san." I withdraw my hand and bow slightly. If that concludes our business, shell we turn to pleasure? I would be honored if you came to the gallery and engaged with my recent work. Provided, of course, duty does not oblige you to…
  • I do not pretend there is actually a choice. I tilt my head slightly. “Alas, I wish I could be certain I could tell when said information is leaking. Wild rumors about the Oni fly across the veil constantly, only insects and stars are more numerous…
  • So… quite dangerous then. And Personal? I bow slightly. “I understand.” And I straighten again. “If you will forgive the temerity of my further inquiry, what timeframe do you propose before more extreme agendas, I presume starting with Mox, are purs…
  • My dear Tao, Regrets at not being able to take you up on your offer. Obligations did not permit. I look forward with pleasure to our next meeting. Mnemosyne Attachment The attachment is a artistic construct, a sort of portrait of you but nothi…
  • The Oni may know I’m the hacker. They may not. If they do know then this game has some other objective entirely, or they would have told me. Either way, they’ll be watching, though watching me isn’t the easiest thing to do. “Would elimination be pr…
  • The soft sigh through my nose is the only expression of perturbation I permit, except perhaps a cooling in the tone of my voice. “Our relative positions are much more clear now, Ceres-san, and of course I welcome the opportunity to fulfill my oblig…
  • Let's call it Anxious, then, so rolling with scared. (Rolled: 2d6-1. Rolls: 2, 3. Total: 4)
  • Clearly Tao has affected me more deeply than I anticipated. That is equal parts thrilling and disturbing, but I do not have the bandwidth to do more than take note of it, though it pulls at me. I'm long practiced at having my expression reveal only…
  • Detailed and expansive. Secure.
  • Rolling Construct (Rolled: 2d6+1. Rolls: 4, 5. Total: 10)
  • I bow again. "Of course." I move the interior door of my lobby, configuring the door for my private domain. I lead them in and we pass through the mirror hall and with what might seem a neck wrenching twist of environment pass into a construct of …
  • Not direct access such as this back door. Though I invite them in on occasion. You don't hand intel operatives the keys to the kingdom, it's bad form. So we maintain a face-saving fiction. They pretend they can't get in and I pretend that I could s…
  • I first met Ceres as a client. Actually I’m not sure if the man I met was Ceres, or if it’s a codename passed among operatives or shared on operative teams, or if the Oni simply change sleeves like you and I would change our clothes. The first two …
  • Agreed on all counts. I have no session moves.
  • Tao gets added to my subconscious as a named NPC
  • Rolling intimacy move (Rolled: 2d6. Rolls: 2, 1. Total: 3)
  • I owe Jasper for keeping some secret of my subconscious from me for my benefit. I owe Havana for comforting me with flow after breaking up with Sarah. I owe the Oni for my cybernetics (they also provided my current sleeve.) My mother betrayed me t…
  • I review quickly the image of Tao as she entered. I find a gentle smile on my lips as I step in close to Tao, enjoying the heat from her body as I wrap the obi around her waist. I can hear her breathing and my own as I carefully tie it in a sober Ka…
  • I cannot help but smile softly at her struggle against her own desire. It is endearing. Increment counter for how much trouble Nem is in. “Indeed. As will I.” I relieve her tension by standing. She would not thank me for compromising her in her dut…
  • Her hand is warm, and larger than mine. What was I hoping for? To dissuade from such an intimacy? To protect her or to protect myself? Present such a thing as a danger and of course the warrior charges it head on. I blink, looking deep into her eye…
  • I tilt my head slightly. “I am. And it is possibly the most secure option as I can conceal my own connection to your neurochip within the general connection of the veil overall. This is, of course, if you judge it best that my presence remain concea…
  • I let the moment stretch out while I contemplate her. She is as beautiful as the folded lily, folded by fate and the Damiyo into a shape not altogether natural. Is she proud to be honorbound? It seems so. It is an office of great respect. But there…
  • I see Kage but do not shift my gaze. I am sure she is not fully present in the veil and that Tao will not see her even if she were to stand in front of Tao. But there is no need to draw attention. I am silent a moment. "It sounds, Tao-san, as if …
  • Reconfigure (Rolled: 2d6+1. Rolls: 5, 4. Total: 10)
  • I raise an eyebrow and set down my own empty cup. Sharing such a thing with an honorbound like Tao seems a dubious course. “I know Jasper, or rather, we have met. He is exellent at hardware and cybernetics. Sarah referred me to him for some tasks t…
  • “An honor, and a pleasure that I shall look forward to, Tao-san.” I say, and then drink my own tea. She knows why we are here. I wait for her readiness to discuss our business.
  • "And I, you, Havana-san. Good fortune." Do I truly? It is something I question. Not for Havana herself but for my own feelings of vulnerability to her. I bow once again and unspool the construct.
  • Tao will truly be a test of my self-control. I imagined, however briefly, her taking my inquiry as invitation and…er… pouncing. I move across the open space to the kitchen, biting my lip for a moment when my face is not visible, and retrieve a love…
  • I watch her remove the weapons and my eyes glide along the edge of the slightly open kimono before returning to her eyes and registering the request. A smile. “It is no trouble at all. Tao-san. Do you prefer tea or something more… potent?”
  • I nod. “Very well, I can temporarily spoof his chip to a courier and mask his current signal as a maintenance subroutine and overwrite his local presence. The more thorough work will necessitate an in-person meeting and an entirely off-line constru…
