Canned for the night.
NPPD Mainframe: Good evening citizens. Thank you for choosing NPPD for your incarceration.
You will remain in this holding area until a human agent arrives, at which point you will be charged or released.
Estimated time of arrival for an agent is 6 hours. 11 minutes and 46 seconds.
GE: I hate robot cops. Especially NPPD* robot cops. You just can’t reason with them.
GM: Well you don’t suppose the explosion on the 45th floor of Tyrell Corp.
Tower might explain their twitchiness? I’ve never seen so many peeps scooped at one time.
GE: So what happened?
GM: Half an hour before, I saw a grav-cab land on the roof.
I was watching like you asked. Three peeps got out and unloaded a cryo-cap.
Then nothing til the big boom. But check it out, a few minutes after the windows blew out,
someone was back on the roof.
Couldn’t see much though.
They pulled down another grav-cab and powered out.
GE: Anything else?
GM: Was hard to see, the angle was wrong…
but…whoever it was has a long nose.
GE: Hah! Silly Yakuza. They woke her up.
GE: We better get some sleep. Otherwise it’s going to be a real long night.
GE: Ehhh sunrise over Nexus. Place has changed some.
GM: I swear Grady, next time I hear you’re inbound…
GE: Awwww, Gomi, you say that every time I come to town.
NPPD Mainframe: Good morning citizens!
The human agent has decided there is no further reason to detain you.
Please vacate the holding area immediately!
GE: Translation: our lawyers checked their messages. Let’s get out of here.
