The soft steps of a pair of sleek, matte-cream-leather high top athletic shoes echoes down a side hallway in the Trickle Down Hydroponics Tower. There’s a beep, as one of the security doors opens, and then a few seconds later, closes again, and locks. Entering into the main lobby, the figure occupying these shoes… pauses - an open office door catch…

Reed, Sedoy, Mavis, and ISO stand frozen in place in their apartment lobby, not wanting to make any sudden movements and risk the wrath of the three Oasis PD-branded Very Heavy Pistols trained on their heads. ISO opens his mouth as if to speak, and then closes it a second later with a frown. He tries again, reaching deep to summon some sort of expl…

ISO struggles in vain with the restraints of the tangle-foot carpet, as Reed’s slashes into the reaching tendrils. The combined scuffle does an excellent job of muffling the faint hum of an Oasis PD drone hovering into the room behind Sedoy. The near-unheard sound sparks something in her subconscious, drawing forth memories of the past few days - s…

The oppressive desert heat seeps through the cracks in the insulation of the downtown Oasis apartments as the sun rises on the first day of the Wave. Each member of our group has isolated in their room, struggling (with various degrees of success) to find comfort from their recently-installed CallumTech Airfresh Window Units. ISO lies motionless in…

The skyline of the Oasis burns, as the Trauma Team Heavy Aerial Assault Vehicle slices through the chaos. Within the vehicle, the relative silence weighs heavy on the party. Mavis cradles her broken arm, struggling for each breath, and wincing as their vehicle is battered by the high wind. She stares out the window, her eyes unfocused, as she recal…

In the dimly lit dining area of Oscar Christiansan’s heavily fortified penthouse, Mavis and ISO stand wearily in front of a cold metal blast door, their bodies battered, bruised, and creaking from over-exertion. Mavis steadies herself against the polished metal of Oscar’s safe room, her breath ragged and adrenaline still coursing through her veins.…

High above the smoke and flames of the Oasis corpo housing district, Reed sits in the pilot seat of a Trauma Team Heavy Aerial Assault vehicle. He closes his eyes, and steadies his breath, focusing on the datastream flooding his neural link. The advanced thermal cameras run a full sweep, peeling back the walls of their client Oscar Christiansan’s p…

'...You best pick up the phone when I call, or you should lose this number'. The words from Nico, their Fixer, bounce around in ISO's head, as Sedoy gathers up the last of her things. She flits around her desk, organizing and arranging her workbench with near-manic energy from her recently injested Synth***. ISO rolls his eyes, he glances at his ag…

While Mavis and Reed fight through the crowds of desperate people searching for Cyberwear parts... Our story today starts on a much quieter scene - in the apartment of Sedoy. ISO, growing increasingly starved for interaction, lounges on Sedoy's couch scrolling through the datapools on his Agent. There isn't much to look at. His usual Night City dat…

Sedoy flexes her arm, testing out the new addition of her invention - the Cyberian Cooler. She glances at Mavis, a concerned look crossing her stern face for a brief moment - and then instructs her base-level internal operating system to power up the cooling equipment. As the fans in her arm begin to lightly hum, she watches as the Environment Temp…

Mavis gingerly taps the side of her apartment vidscreen - and then presses a few of the faceplate buttons for good measure. Unfortunately, her ability to mend flesh and cybernetics doesn't extend to vidscreens, and the electronics whine painfully before clicking off. Mavis sighs, and makes a mental note to order a replacement screen on Reed's tab b…

ISO winces in pain as he hobbles along the sidewalk. He's only a half-step behind Reed, but still - only barely able to keep up. As he walks, he feels his freshly-mended bones and tissue straining against the tight bandages. A sharp stabbing hits him suddenly in the side, and he stumbles slightly, trying to mask his reaction to the pain. Reed glare…

Sedoy blinks wearily at the outline of the Nomad standing in her doorway. Reed, glowering impatiently, stares at her as she rummages through the pile of electronics and schematics scattered about her living room table. Underneath a pile of synthetic insulation, she finds what she's looking for - an AirHypo, with 'Boost XL' printed on the side. She …

Mavis shuts the door to her apartment quietly, so as not to disturb ISO as he slips into a medically-induced hallucinogenic fog. She walks down the stairs, grumbling about the price of medical supplies and cursing that stupid media and his stupid motorcycle. At the bottom of the stairs, she stops for a moment and glances up in the direction of her …

Sharp bursts of pain shoot through the arms, legs and feet of ISO, as he slowly tries to push himself upright. After a few half-hearted, painful attempts at readjusting, he leans back and rests his head on a convenient pillow propped up against the armrest of the couch. Less than 10 feet away, Sedoy and Reed sit at Mavis' living room table. Sedoy t…

A black cloaked figure stands in the middle of the intersection, directly in front of the sleek automated vehicle containing Sedoy. The traffic indicator in front of her car turns green, and the vehicles on the opposite side of the road begin to move.

With a crunch, ISO flips over the front of the handlebars of his new motorbike, as he's flung unceremoniously into the air. Time seems to slow to a crawl as he tumbles head over heels towards a row of abandoned nomad motorbikes. He feels his grapple arm snap as it slams into the roof of an old, rusted sedan. ISO barely has enough time mid-flight to…

A large, black SUV waits in the shadow of Oasis Apartment Building 72-BCB. Inside the empty vehicle, a lone computer display bolted to the center front console reads 'Waiting for Passenger - Sedoy. 136 passengers in queue'.

In the basement server room of the Trickle Down Hydroponics station, one of the guards peers over Sedoy's shoulder with interest as she roots around inside the central control server.

Reed stands alone in his bathroom, shoulders hunched over the sink. The water hisses quietly into the metal basin as he studies his reflection. He scoops water into his hands and splashes it on his face, rubbing away the patches of dried blood with the slow, practiced demeanor of someone who has done this many times before. He inspects his face aga…

The elevator chimes rhythmically as it slowly ascends the dull metal tower on the outskirts of the Oasis. Inside, Sedoy, catches her reflection on the sheen of the glass and steel interior.

As our characters ponder the bizarre interviews they just gave, a million questions swirl through their minds. Though, for ISO, one thought rises above the rest - the person on the vidscreen in the waiting room. Her audio is muted, but whatever she's talking about seems important. Could this be his first Oasis story? And how could he insert himself…

Getting arrested is one of the worst things that can happen to edgerunners such as ISO, Mavis, Reed and Sedoy.

The party waits, unsure and anxious…
