【6E】你剩余的生活The Life You Have Left

THE LIFE YOU HAVE LEFT
你剩余的生活

劇透 -   :
I still remember the day I saw a dragon fly over
Times Square. People don’t talk about that one.
They talk about Ryumyo appearing in the skies
above Mount Fuji on Christmas Eve, 2011. They
talk about January 12, 2012 when Dunkelzahn
appeared in Denver. Hell, that one is a national
holiday in the UCAS. By the time I came into this
world, it was common to see dragons. Ryumyo,
Dunkelzahn, Hestaby, Alamais, Nachtmeister,
Lowfyr, and so on. I grew up knowing the name
of every great dragon like they were celebrities or
athletes. I even bought the trading cards.
Today you hear Johnny Spinrad’s name spoken
in the same breath as Lowfyr. Even dragons became
ordinary as we looked for the next big thing. Want
to know the secret to the Sixth World? You’re special until something else comes along. Dragons remain a symbol of everything changed in the world.
Change in the Sixth World—the name we gave to
our reality when magic came into it—isn’t necessarily good. The old reality still mattered after the
change. We watched the old trid shows and ate the
same crap. The world evolved slowly—some say it
degraded. For the dragons, change meant exposure
to the ailments of this world. These once-mythical
creatures became wrapped up in the mundane human world. They showed up on TV, opened bars—
one even ran for president of the UCAS. And won.
Then the dragons began to die. Their deaths
were viewed as earthshaking events, on par with
the planet’s biggest celebrities, and those events
changed our feelings about these creatures. Suddenly they were mortal, like the rest of us. If something is mortal, then we can kill it. Half the dragons
I mentioned are dead or missing. Each death rattled the world like an earthquake, forcing the powers that be to scramble and realign. That’s where
we come in. That’s how we make our living day to
day. Wars aren’t always fought on the battlefeld
or even in the media anymore. They happen in the
shadows, where the public understand only the
outcome, not the process that led to it. And sometimes not even that. If you know where to look and
how, though, you can start to uncover the play-by-
play of a shadowrun, or even a shadow war. That
report about a warehouse in Renton that burned
down followed by a break-in at a Centurion secured storage facility and the accidental drowning
death of a noted Mitsuhama scientist days after?
All three were part of the same shadowrun to delete all traces of evidence of what Mitsuhama was
working on. You didn’t hear about the Matrix attack on a Mitsuhama datastore, because they controlled that information. You didn’t hear about the
security action in the Redmond Barrens to track
down the runners who did the job, because people
in the Barrens are too poor to get noticed by the
media. These are the lives we lead, defned by anonymity.
Trust me when I tell you it is better to be anonymous than to be special. Life in the Sixth World
is like the game King of the Hill, where everyone
wrestles to reach the top, and once you’re up there,
everyone else tries to knock you down. In the wake
of those battles, you start to fgure out who has
what position in the hierarchy. The biggest kids are
the hardest to move, and the little guys have to
work fast to fgure out how things work. You see,
our world even eats the dragons, so what chance to
do you and I really have to stay at the top? Here’s a
news flash, chummer. You’re the little guy, and you
don’t have much time to fgure it out. Start now.
我依然记得看见一头龙飞过时代广场的那一天。人们不谈那一头。他们会谈2011年平安夜龙树出现在富士山上空。他们会谈2012年1月12日黑牙在丹佛现身。天,这日子在UCAS甚至成了个节日。我来到这个世界时,见到龙已经很寻常了。龙树、黑牙、希丝塔比、阿拉密斯、夜主、洛菲尔,等等。我听着每头巨龙的名字长大,仿佛他们是名人或是运动员。我甚至买了他们的交换卡牌。
如今,你听见强尼·斯普兰德的名字和洛菲尔一同被提起。我们在寻找下一个大目标,连龙都变得平凡。想知道第六纪的秘密?你很特别,直到别的东西出现。龙依然象征着世界上一切变化的事物。第六纪的变化——魔法出现后我们给予现实这个名字——不一定是好事。变化之后,旧现实依然存在。我们观看旧的三维秀,吃同样的垃圾食品。世界在缓慢进化——有人说是倒退。对龙来说,变化意味着暴露于这个世界的疾病之下。曾经神秘的生物被卷入凡俗的人类世界。他们出现在电视上、酒吧里——甚至有一位竞选UCAS总统。还赢了。
然后龙们开始死去。与这个星球上最著名的名人一同,他们的死被视为惊天事件,改变了我们对这些生物的看法。突然间,他们成为凡物,和我们一样。凡物,即可被杀。半数我提到的龙都已死亡或失踪。每一起死亡都如同地震一般撼动这个世界,迫使权力相互倾轧又重组。我们该出场了。这就是我们每天的工作。战争并不都发生在战场上,甚至也不发生在媒体上。它们在暗影中,公众只知道结果,而没有过程。有时他们连结果也不知道。但假如你清楚途径和方式,便能揭开某次暗影狂奔、甚至是暗影战争的内幕。雷顿一处仓库被烧毁,接下来一个百夫长负责安保的仓储设施被入侵,几天后一位著名的三津滨科学家意外溺水身亡?三者都属于同一场狂奔,目的是消除三津滨研究对象的所有痕迹。你不会听说三津滨数据库被矩阵攻击,因为他们控制了这一信息。你不会听说雷蒙德荒地有安保行动追查干活的狂奔者,因为荒地的人太过贫乏,媒体无暇顾及。这就是我们的生活,无名氏的生活。
相信我,无名好过特殊。第六纪的生活如同山丘之王游戏,每个人都努力登顶,而你一旦抵达,他们又都想方设法把你拖下来。这些战斗之后,你会开始弄懂各自的阶级位置。最大的孩子最难挪动,小个子必须迅速找到方法。你看,我们的世界甚至吞噬了龙,你我又有什么机会留在顶端呢?这可是新闻,chummer。你是小个子,你没有太多时间弄懂。现在就开始吧。

Born this Way
生来如此
劇透 -   :
There’s this idea that people end up where they
are in life because that is what they are suited for.
That part can be a crutch for those who deal in excuses. However, there are many factors in our life
besides ability. Birth and opportunity put us in a
starting position that is tough to shake. I was born
into a world of emerging races, shifting demographics, new rising magic, corporate overreach
and overrule. My world was defned by crowded
streets, food shortages, disease, poverty, and crime.
If you’re reading this, you were born into the aftermath of my world. As I look around, I’m starting
to think that my generation had it easy. There were
still choices in the beginning. People were fguring
out the rules and trying to fnd their way in all of
this. Trying to understand where they ft in. The
old-school guys from the ’40s and ’50s made their
own way. They cut themselves a slice of the pie
when there was still pie to be had. Some of them
even hung up the trenchcoat and put on a suit, selling out to corporate interests. Some went the other
direction—slipping away from corporate life and
into the shadows.
有一种观点,人们在生活中的位置与他们自身相匹配。对那些靠借口生活的人来说,这种观点可以成为支撑。然而除了能力,我们的生活还有许多其它因素。出生和机会赋予的起始点难以动摇。我出生在一个种族诞生、人口变更、新魔法兴起、公司执掌一切的世界。拥挤的街道、食物短缺、疾病、贫穷和犯罪构成了我的世界。若你在读这些文字,说明你出生在我的世界导致的后果中。环顾四周,我开始认为我这一代过得太容易。起初还有选择。人们研究出规则,并在规则中找到位置。努力思考他们适合哪里。四、五十年代的老家伙走出了自己的路。他们在蛋糕被分完前切下了自己的一块。其中一些甚至挂起风衣,换上西装,把自己卖给公司。而有的人选择了另一个方向——离开公司,进入暗影。
劇透 -   :
You have some choices left. What to wear, what
to eat, where to shop. These things are yours, so
long as your corporate overlords say they are. You
see, they built a system that was meant to keep
us separated, powerless, and ignorant. All that is
fne if you are a drone, but what happens if you
want more than the special ramen on Wednesdays?
What opportunities do you have to get more?
Play by the rules, and you fnd out really quickly that the world is built to put you in a box. That
same world needs you to pay bills and buy drek
you don’t actually need. You’re the fuel for the corporate machine. Where you are on the food chain
depends on where you started out. Despite what
the corps would have you believe, most people aren’t born into corporate servitude. The majority
of people come into the world with an unaligned
System Identifcation Number or SIN, which is issued to them in the hospital or administered by
sanctioned midwifes.
你还剩些选择。穿什么,吃什么,买什么。这些是你的,除非你的公司领主们说不。你看,他们构建了一个将我们分隔、剥夺我们的权力、让我们被无视的体系。假如你是个工蜂,一切都很好,但如果你想要的不仅仅是周三的特制拉面呢?你有什么机会获取更多?依规则行事,你很快就发现世界的目的是把你放进盒子。这个世界需要你付账单、需要你买不需要的垃圾。你是公司机器的燃料。你在食物链上的位置取决于你的起始点。大部分人并非生来就是公司的奴仆,尽管公司希望你这么相信。绝大多数人出生时都有一个独一无二的系统身份号,或者叫SIN,由医院或被认可的助产士分配。
劇透 -   :
Being born into the system means that the frst
ffteen or so years of your life are already decided.
You go to school, get tested for magical aptitude
around middle school, and are tracked into career-feld classes just in time for high school. Things
are the same if you’re born a corporate citizen or
into a functioning government. The options narrow for the Awakened. They narrow even further
for those of us born metahuman. The best most
of us can hope for is to fnd work as a salaryman
slinging Arrogant Gargoyle at the corner Stuffer
Shack. The system works to support the corporations and criminalize any freedoms that threaten
the corps, such as workers voluntarily taking their
services to employers willing to pay. It became illegal to switch corporations without corporate approval. So, in order to better their lives, wageslaves
needed the complex series of movements carried
out by those of us who work in the shadows. Shadowrunners are problem solvers. Because we exist
outside of the system, we are not beholden to it.
出生在体系内意味着你前十五年往上的人生都已经决定了。你会去上学,在初中左右接受魔法能力测试,在高中按照职业规划进入对应班级。无论你是公司公民还是职能政府的公民都一样。觉醒者的选择面更窄。对我们这种泛人类,选择会进一步收缩。我们最多希望能在街角的杂货铺当个叫卖Arrogant Gargoyle的销售员。体系的目的是支撑公司,并将所有威胁到公司的自由归为犯罪,例如工人自发为愿意付工钱的雇主服务。未经公司同意换公司成为了非法行为。因此,为了提高生活水平,薪奴需要我们这些在暗影中工作的人进行一系列复杂的行动。狂奔者解决问题。我们存在于体系之外,因此我们不依赖体系。
劇透 -   :
I bluffed my way into a charter school with a
faked SIN and got enough of an education to become a decent hacker and get out of the system.
Others I grew up with weren’t so lucky—gangs
treat schools like a draft pool. It is rare to see a
city kid get out without aligning themselves to one
faction or another. Even corp kids have gangs to
worry about. After a while, it becomes a lifestyle.
我凭一张假SIN混进一家特许学校,接受了成为普通黑客所需的教育,然后离开了这个体系。和我一起长大的就没有那么幸运了——帮派将学校当成选秀池。很难见到城市孩子出门不拉帮结派。甚至公司孩子都要考虑帮派。一段时间后,它成了一种生活方式。
劇透 -   :
Not everyone is lucky enough to be born with
those choices. Many people are born poor and cannot afford to go to a hospital and be properly registered. Like me, they don’t get formal education
unless they fnd a way to fake their paperwork.
Undocumented people are treated as a drain on society, overlooked and relegated to the poorest parts
of every urban sprawl. That’s right, your worth is
dependent on the whims of corporations and governments and who they decide to give paperwork
to. Awesome, right? Anyway, SINs became a way
of defning who was and who wasn’t a person. Not
everyone can even apply. The Corporate Court’s
2072 acknowledgment of metaspecies sapience
presently defnes which species can or can’t apply
for a SIN. Down here in the streets, we know the real qualifying test is money. In Dunkelzahn’s last
will and testament, he used his draconic wealth to
provide thousands of SINs to the disenfranchised.
He was helping people get into the system, but
nobody ever stopped to ask if being part of that
system was a good idea, or if we should continue
to survive, and in some cases thrive, outside of it.
不是所有人出生时都有那么幸运获得这些选择。许多人家境贫穷,负担不起去医院的费用,无法注册。像我一样,他们不能获得正规教育,除非想办法伪造文件。未被登记的人被视作社会的下水道,他们被无视、被驱逐至蔓城区最贫穷的区域。没错,公司和政府一时兴起决定给谁发文件决定着你的价值。总之,SIN成了决定了谁是人、谁不是的方式。甚至不是所有人都能申请。2072年公司法庭关于泛智能的公告明确了哪些种族可以、哪些种族不可以申请SIN。在街头,我们知道真正的合格条件是钱。在黑牙最后的遗嘱里,他用龙的财富给一千名无公民权人士提供了SIN。他帮助人们加入体系,但从未有人停止发问:成为体系的一部分好吗?我们是否应该继续在体系之外生存、甚至繁荣呢?
劇透 -   :
Shadowrunning is a survival mechanism. It is
impossible to work at a Stuffer Shack, let alone
hold a desk job, without a SIN. But on our side of
the street, a SIN makes life more diffcult. You get
caught, and they know who you are. They know
your history and your address, if you’re not careful. That’s why we take on street names. It’s an alter ego, a way to do business without risking the
little bit of a life you’ve scraped together for yourself. Without some form of identity—your personal brand—you don’t have many choices. Sure,
you can still lift yourself out of the barrens on a
football or urban-brawl scholarship, but most of
us don’t make it ffteen blocks from where we grew
up. After a time, we stop looking for ways to make
it out. That’s the truth for most of us, but like I
said, things are different if you’re special.
暗影狂奔是一种维生机制。没有SIN,你不可能在杂货铺上班,更别提干文书工作。但在我们的街道,SIN让生活更艰难。你被抓了,他们会知道你是谁。如果不当心,他们会知道你的过往、你的住址。这就是为什么我们使用街名。这是第二自我,避免让工作威胁你积攒而来的生活。没有某种形式的身份——即私人标记,你没多少选择。当然,你依然可以靠足球或城市混杂的奖学金离开荒地,但我们中大部分没离开出生地超过十五个街区。一段时间后,我们停止寻找离开的途径。对我们中的大多数,这就是事实。但就像我说的,要是你够特别,事情将有所不同。
劇透 -   :
So let’s look at the ways to be special.
那么让我们看看变得特别的方法。

The Awakened
觉醒者
劇透 -   :
There is still debate about what magic actually is. A magician channels magic in a different
way than a shaman or an adept. Both of these
are attached to concepts we call mana and Essence, which are simple labels for connections to
things and powers that we do not understand.
Back in ’22, this e-rag called Data coined the term
“Awakened.” To be born Awakened means having
the ability to manipulate mana. With this power,
you can summon spirits out of thin air, conjure a
freball and send it racing down an alley, or even
leave your own flesh behind and travel through the
shadowy realm known as astral space. Some people can channel mana through their own bodies,
giving them freakish abilities like outrunning a car
or punching through a brick wall.
人们依然在争论魔法究竟是什么。法师传导魔法的方法与萨满或修士不同。两者都与我们称之为法力(mana)和精华(Essence)的概念相关,它们是我们给未知的事物与力量附加的标签。2022年,一本叫做《数据》的电子杂志创造了“觉醒者”这个词。生为觉醒者,意味着拥有操控法力的能力。凭借这一能力,你能凭空召唤精魂、变出火球并让它穿过窄巷,甚至脱离肉体前往被成为星界空间的阴影国度。有的能用自己的身躯传导法力,赋予自身超常的能力,比如与车赛跑,或用拳头打穿墙壁。
劇透 -   :
Magic opened new doors. Suddenly, there was
another way out of the barrens outside of sports
and sex. Kids born with the ability had choices.
MIT added another T (for Thaumaturgy) and
became MIT&T, and it offered scholarships that
lifted kids out of poverty. It wasn’t all good news
and warm feelings. People don’t talk about what
happened in the high schools. Mages, shamans,
and adepts all faced ridicule and abuse until they
fgured out how they could use their powers effectively. The shadows are flled with stories like Rebecca, who’d been bullied her entire life, suddenly learning how to chuck a powerball. Once they
started hurting people, the law wasn’t on their side
anymore. The way things went bad was different
in every country. Many Awakened children were beaten to death by lynch mobs in the early days.
Some of the more religious countries branded magic users as demons and punished them accordingly.
魔法打开了新大门。突然间,除了运动和性之外,多了一种离开荒地的途径。生来就有这种能力的孩子有了选择。MIT加多了一个T(奇术),变成MIT&T,并为贫穷的孩子提供奖学金。但并非全是好消息和善意。人们不说高中发生了什么。法师、萨满和修士都承受着讥讽和辱骂,直到他们学会如何有效利用自己的能力。暗影里充斥着这类故事,例如一直被霸凌的吕贝卡,突然学会了如何扔法力球。一旦他们伤害他人,法律便不再站在他们这边。每个国家发生坏事的方式各有不同。早年,许多觉醒孩子被私刑暴徒殴打至死。
劇透 -   :
This didn’t go on for long before they realized
folks were wasting a valuable commodity. The
arms race had changed. Eventually the corporations tried to seize control of every magical asset
they could, in order to have control of a commodity that everyone else coveted. Corps snapped
up the Awakened people and spirits to the point
where being born a normal human, though they
were still a vast majority, felt like a disadvantage.
Basic supply and demand. The Awakened live in a
different world than we do, one that is quite literally more magical. If you were born Awakened and
the tooth fairy showed up at the foot of your bed
after you lost that frst tooth, odds are it wasn’t
a dream. She was probably somebody’s spirit ally
who came by to check up on you and potentially
recruit you to their side.
没多久他们就意识到大众在浪费一种高价商品。军备竞赛变了。最终公司试图控制所有他们能碰到的魔法人口,进而控制这种所有人垂涎的商品。公司争夺觉醒者和精魂的行为,让出生凡俗的社会大多数感到凡俗成了劣势。基本的供求关系。觉醒者生活在与我们不同的世界,一个字面意义上更魔法的世界。如果你是个觉醒者,那么当你脱落第一颗牙时出现的牙仙子,很可能不是梦。她可能是某人的精魂盟友,过来查看你的安危,将你纳入麾下。
劇透 -   :
Magic and technology don’t mix well. In fact,
they tend to operate like different ends of a spectrum. If you’re one of the Awakened, then any technology joined to your body disrupts the flow of
mana. The more ’ware you have, the weaker your
connection to magic. Before we really understood
or had access to other countermeasures, prison facilities used to perform invasive operations, installing monitoring cyberware in criminal magic users
as a way to deny them access to their abilities. Because the more powers the world invents, the more
creative the tortures and punishments are to stop
them.
魔法和科技相处不好。事实上,它们更像是光谱的两端。如果你是觉醒者的一员,任何进入你身体的技术产物都会干扰法力流动。殖装越多,你与魔法的联系越弱。在我们真正理解或得到其它抑制手段前,监狱设施就使用侵入式手术给犯了罪的魔法使用者安装监视用赛博殖装,以断绝他们的能力。力量的种类越多,阻止力量的折磨与惩罚方式也越有创造性。
劇透 -   :
But while we’re talking about tech, let’s dive
into that a little more.
但既然讲到了科技,就让我们再深入一点。

Jack in and Tune Out
接入虚拟,过滤现实
劇透 -   :
Once the new smell of magic wore off, tech
scraped back into the spotlight. 2024 was the birth
of simsense. This was an evolution of virtual reality that allowed you to sink completely into a digitally realized reality indistinguishable from real
life. Simsense works off of Artifcial Sensory Induction System Technology (ASIST), which allows
a person to disconnect from their physical senses
and truly feel (and taste and smell) sensory impressions recorded on a chip. It presented an easy
enough way out of a world that couldn’t promise
anything. Unlike video games, simsense lets you
really feel the recorded experiences of individuals
as they lived. Instead of watching a movie, you experienced it down to the heart-pumping sensations
of fear, happiness, anger, even lust. You could dive
through the clouds in a fghter jet, experience the
rush of chasing down a criminal through Seattle
streets, or even be that criminal running for his life
as the jackboots of Lone Star offcers close in. Simsense can record everything a person experiences
and feed you that same experience. Naturally, the tech spawned a black market of better-than-life
chips (BTLs) that offered irregular, amped-up experiences, and even snuff chips.
魔法的新鲜感消失后,技术重回聚光灯下。2024年拟感诞生。这场虚拟现实革命让你能够彻底浸入与现实生活无异的数字现实。拟感基于人工感官诱发系统技术(Artifcial Sensory Induction System Technology  ASIST),让人能够隔绝物理感官,完全感受(包括味觉和嗅觉)记录在芯片上的感官体验。它给这个毫无指望的世界提供了一种足够简单的逃离方式。和视频游戏不同,拟感能够让你真实感受被记录的他人生活体验。不同于看电影,你能感受到的包括血脉偾张的恐惧、快乐、愤怒甚至欲望。你能驾驶战斗机直穿云层,你能追着罪犯穿过西雅图街道,甚至成为那个被孤星长靴步步紧逼、正夺命狂奔的罪犯。拟感记录一个人感受到的一切,再给你同样的感受。自然,这种技术催生了比特利(better-than-life,BTL)芯片黑市,供应异常、高强度的体验,甚至还有湮灭芯片。(译注:snuff chip,提供杀人/被杀体验的芯片)。
劇透 -   :
ASIST technology merged with Direct Neural
Interface to form the basic technological premise
of what we call the Matrix. You jack into a computer network and you’re in another world. Depending on the intricacy of the code, it can feel
like the real thing. Hackers take it one step further, running hot, without the safety parameters
engaged to have a faster response time. It comes
with risks. Run hot and biofeedback can be lethal.
ASIST kills. Between 2064 and 2075 ASIST killed
more than 21,000 Matrix users. Those are just the
deaths reported by the corporations and the government. We know the number is higher. ASIST led
to the development of vehicle control rigs (VCR).
That technology is the backbone of the transport
industry. It makes it possible for us to jack into
vehicles, drones, and even security networks and
control them with a thought.
ASIST技术与直接神经界面结合,构成了我们如今矩阵的基础。接入计算机网络,你就进入了另一个世界。根据不同的代码复杂性,这个世界可以和真的一样。黑客更进一步,采取热模接入,放弃安全措施换来了更快的反应时间。但有风险。热模和生物反馈可能会致命。ASIST能杀人。2064到2075年间,ASIST杀死了超过2万1千名矩阵用户。这还仅是公司和政府通告的死亡人数。我们知道实际数字会更高。AISIST带来了载具中控(vehicle control rigs, VCR)的发展。这项技术是运输工业的支柱,让我们能够接入载具、无人机甚至安保网络,仅凭思维控制它们。
劇透 -   :
Tech moves so fast these days that it is hard to
believe that the modern Matrix is barely over half
a century old. In that time, we’ve gone from linking into keyboard-sized cyberdecks to handheld
wireless commlinks that sync to the local grid. The
Matrix used to be a thing you had to jack into.
Now it impacts the physical world through augmented-reality objects. Twice, the Matrix crashed
and burned, rising from its digital ashes as a more
robust version of its former self. In the wake of the
last Crash, corporate organizations banded together in order to reshape the Matrix into Danielle de
la Mar’s vision of a global grid of networks regulated by a singular authority called GOD, or Grid
Overwatch Division. We live in the Orichalcum
Age of the Matrix, but we still don’t understand
the secrets it holds.
近年来科技快速发展,很难相信现代矩阵仅有区区半个世纪的历史。那一次,我们从连接键盘大小的赛博碟板转到操作与当地网域同步的无线通讯链。曾经你需要物理接入矩阵。现在矩阵通过增强现实影响物理世界。曾经两次,矩阵崩溃,从数字灰烬中诞生了更为稳固的新自我。上一次崩溃后,公司组织联合起来,将矩阵重塑为丹妮尼尔·德·拉马尔提出的全球网域联合网络,由称作GOD的单一权力机关管理。我们生在矩阵的奥利哈刚纪元,却依然未能知晓它的秘密。

The Cyber Revolution
赛博革命
劇透 -   :
There are choices we make, and those that are
made for us. Your parents were wageslaves, or
maybe you were a sprawl baby. You are born a
particular race, with all of the discrimination that
comes with it. You are born Awakened or not. A
very small number of us are born technomancers
with the ability to slice through the Matrix with
your mind. The rest of us are left with choices.
Technology creates a lot of choices if you can barter or steal your way under the knife.
The simultaneous growth of technology and
magic meant that there was still a chance to be of
value without being born Awakened. Going under
the knife, already as commonplace as getting your
teeth cleaned, became a necessity to remain a part
of this world. It is near impossible to work an offce job without a datajack. “Fresh meat” is considered ineffcient. If the ’ware is too expensive to buy
outright, there are other options. Shadowrunners are the original high-tech lowlifes. Find secondhand ’ware. Cut a deal with a supplier or local doc
to provide muscle in exchange for the cyber. Offer
yourself up as a guinea pig for experimental ’ware
to an outft like the Grey Brothers.
有我们做出的选择,和替我们做出的选择。你的父母是薪奴,还是你是个蔓城婴儿。你出生就是某个种族,承受种族的所有歧视。你出生就是觉醒者,或者不是。非常少数人出生就是超链,拥有靠思想切开矩阵的能力。我们剩下的人还有选择。假如能在手术刀下谋生,技术为你创造了许多选择。科技与魔法同时进步,意味着即使不是觉醒者,你也有还有机会变得有价值。进行手术就和洗牙一样寻常,它是生存在这个世界的必需品。在办公室上班,没有数据插口几乎是不可能的。“新肉”即是无效率。如果全额购买殖装太过昂贵,还有其它选项。狂奔者是高科技-低生活的源头。找二手殖装。和供应商或本地医生交易,用安保服务换殖装。找灰兄弟(Grey Brothers)这种组织,自愿成为实验殖装的白老鼠。

Cyberware became the great equalizer. It also
became a way to stand out in the world if you
wanted to. You can choose to be a hacker and
buy implants that improve your abilities to interface with the Matrix. You can choose to be a rigger, swapping the precious meatspace along your
spine for a VCR. You can embed ballistic plates
below the skin, improving your odds of survival
as a shooter. You can mount spring-loaded weapons in your forearms, so you’re never outmatched
in hand-to-hand combat. Are you the type who
wants to blend in, with cyberware that is made
to appear human? Are you the type who wants
to stand out with oversized mechanical parts and
burning red eyes? Do you see your body as a piece
of art, sculpted from futuristic-looking cyberlimbs? Perhaps you’ve chosen to abandon human
form entirely for an arachnid base and arms reminiscent of a Hindu god. Cyberware and bioware
were meant to level the playing feld, but instead
they created entirely new avenues of expression
and opportunity.
赛博殖装成了绝佳的平衡器。如果你希望,它还能让你在这个世界脱颖而出。你可以当个黑客,购买提升与矩阵交互能力的殖装。你可以当个机师,用VCR替换脊椎部位的珍贵肉体空间。你可以在皮肤下植入防弹板,提高作为枪手的生存概率。你可以给前臂装上弹簧负载武器,永远不会在徒手战斗中落于人后。你是那种希望融入的人吗?用赛博殖装让自己看起来像人类?你喜欢显眼的超大机械肢体和火红的眼睛?你是否把自己的身体看作艺术品、用充满未来感的赛博义肢雕刻它?或许你选择永远放弃人类外形,换上了蛛形下肢和印度教神灵般的手臂。赛博和生体殖装本意是平衡竞争,但它们却创造了全新的表达和机会。
劇透 -   :
Biology wasn’t standing still during all of this.
For every cybernetic advancement, scientists attempted to fnd a biological equivalent. Bioware
advances kept pace for a while, but in the end it
was clear that metal outperforms meat every time.
However, metal comes with a price tag beyond the
nuyen you lay on the table. Cyberware means a
life of constant surgical upkeep in order to remain
state of the art. For some, it can become an addiction. Rumors abound of shadowrunners who went
beyond what the body could tolerate. They became
more machine than man and the metal drove them
insane. We call them cyberzombies.
一切进展中,生物学并不能原地不不动。对每个赛博技术进展,科学家们都试图找到生物技术的等位体。有一段时间,生体殖装亦步亦趋,但到了最后,金属显然每次都能胜过肉体。然而金属的价格签不仅是你放下的新円。赛博殖装意味着你一生都要进行手术保养才能跟上时代。对有些人来说,这成了一种瘾。有传说一些狂奔者超过了肉体的承受极限。他们更像机器而不是人。金属让他们疯狂。我们称之为赛博僵尸。

ESCAPE ROUTES
逃离路径

劇透 -   :
Daily life in the sprawl can be a grind. Everybody’s looking
for a chance to slip away and fnd some excitement or a life
more interesting than the 9 to 9 they spend behind a desk. The
majority of people don’t spend their leisure time in the physical world. The birth of ASIST technology meant that you no
longer had to be there to be there. Biological advancements in
drug tech alongside the mining of magical properties of plants
mean there are more avenues of escape, depending on how
much risk the user is willing to take on.
蔓城的每日生活可能成为一种折磨。所有人都在找机会逃离朝9晚9的办公室工作,尝试更刺激、更有趣的生活。大部分人的闲暇时间并不会花在物质世界。AISIST技术的诞生意味着你不必待在那里。生物科技带来的药物发展以及被发掘的植物魔法成分,则带来了更多逃离方式,一切取决于使用者愿意冒多大险。
BTL chips
BTL芯片

劇透 -   :
Better-than-life chips offer an experience beyond what
the average person can hope for. Jack in with your full ASIST
activated, and you can feel everything being cast through the
chip experience. This isn’t just a high, it is full sensory dive
into a life a lot better than yours. Or anyone’s. BTLs lack the
safety protocols built into standard simsense chips, so you feel
exactly what the original creator felt, regardless of whether
your body can handle it. BTL-related deaths are second only to
murders in global causes of death.
比特利芯片提供了超出普通人想象的体验。ASIST全开,接入,你就能感受所有写入芯片的体验。不仅仅是迷幻,更是深入体验更好的生活,比你的更好,比其他人的更好。BTL没有普通拟感芯片附带的安全协议,因此你能完整感受创作者的体验,无论你的身体能否承受。BTL相关的死亡数量位居第二,仅次于全球性问题造成的死亡。
Powders and Pills
粉末和药片

劇透 -   :
Drug use is rampant in the Sixth World, but biotech advancements have made it easier for users to hide their addiction. Traditional escapist drugs such as novacoke and the psychedelic
zen are joined on the market by newer drugs derived from magical substances. Wageslaves unable to keep up with the workload
fnd themselves needing to use short-term amphetamines like
cram just to make it through the day.Many corporations have
to drug-test their employees in accordance with the Corporate
Court ruling governing corporations seeking extraterritorial status. As a result, there is a thriving market of supplements and
other solutions to help you fool these tests.
摄入物在第六纪泛滥,但由于生物技术的进展,使用者能更容易隐藏自己已成瘾。市场上除了传统用于逃避现实的药品,例如新星可乐和致幻性的禅,还多了源自魔法提取物的新摄入物。无法跟上工作配额的薪奴们不得不使用诸如超感之类的短期兴奋剂熬过当天的工作。许多公司不得不对员工进行药物测试,以满足公司法庭对寻求治外法权地位的公司的要求。因而,一个提供对应添加剂以及其它解决方式的市场正蓬勃发展,能帮你糊弄这类测试。
Video Games
电子游戏

劇透 -   :
Gaming has been a way to slip out of your daily grind since
the days of the frst computers. We’ve come a long way from
Zork. MMORPGs offer a full range of experiences for everyone
from the casual gamer to hikikomori. Miracle Shooter remains the top online game due to an impressive competitive
balance of grind requirements and a free entry point. Horizon’s
2076 release V-World rates a close second and is the only top
ten game whose focus is not combat. Gaming addiction is on
the rise as is virtual trauma disorder, a condition similar to
PTSD resulting from stressful encounters in the gaming world.
自电脑诞生以来,游戏就是逃离日常折磨的一种方式。自《魔域大冒险》以来,游戏不断地发展,MMORPG能为从休闲玩家到茧居族提供各种体验。《奇迹射手》(Miracle Shooter)因其出色地平衡了重复性操作与精力耗费程度,长久居于在线游戏之首。地平线2076年发行的《V世界》(V-World)以微弱劣势紧随其后,它也是前十名游戏中唯一一个不以战斗为主的游戏。游戏成瘾以及虚拟创伤失调增都在增加,后者的情况类似PTSD,来源是游戏世界里的压力。
Drone Casting
无人机探险

劇透 -   :
From virtual vacations to deep-space or deep-sea explorations, hitch a ride on a drone. Services offer monthly fees to
explore the world through the eyes of a drone. There is a drone
feed for every taste. Evo’s Gagarin Prime lets you experience
the dust storms of Mars. The ever-popular Crimewatch allows
you to follow Lone Star police takedowns. Fly guy lets you voyeuristically observe city life in any major city you want to see.
Guided drone tours of landmarks and ruins have replaced feld
trips as part of the elementary school experience.
从虚拟度假到深空、深海探索,搭台无人机吧。这类服务按月付费,能让你通过一台无人机的眼睛探索世界。任何口味都有无人机提供数据。天演的加加林Prime让你体验火星尘暴。一直热门的犯罪观察(Crimewatch)让你跟随孤星探员抓捕罪犯。飞行小伙(Fly guy)让你窥视任何你想看的大城市。无人机引导的地标和遗迹之旅取代了小学野外考察。

Grease in the Gears
齿轮上油
劇透 -   :
Through all that I’ve shared so far there is a
constant reminder that progress moves through
the dark. That idea is ever present in the name we
are given: shadowrunners. To borrow a phrase,
we are deniable assets. We take a lot of the language of what we are from the spy game, but unlike spies we don’t serve a specifc government or
agenda. Shadowrunners keep the wheels turning.
We do the off-the-books work that enables the system to keep running as if everything in the
world is okay.
我分享了这么多,为的是提醒你事情都在暗中发展。甚至我们的名字也指出了这点:暗影狂奔者。引用个说法,我们是“可否认人员”。我们从间谍游戏里学了很多词,但和间谍不同,我们不为特定政府或特定目的服务。狂奔者负责让车轮转起来。
劇透 -   :
Shadowrunning isn’t a way out. Nobody goes
into the life thinking they’ll be a millionaire and
move to a twenty-fve-meter yacht. That isn’t to
say it can’t happen. Success just looks different
this deep in the shadows. Success looks like staying
alive and keeping a roof over your head. For some,
success looks like doing real good in the world or
at least making a difference. Shadowrunning is not
noble work, but it can be. Those of us who call
ourselves street samurai adhere to a code of honor.
This doesn’t mean I won’t shoot you in the face
if I have to, but it means I’ll look you in the eyes
before I do it.
狂奔不是逃离途径。没哪个过这种生活的人会梦想成为百万富翁、搬进25平的院子。不是说不可能。只是在暗影深处,成功有不同面貌。成功看起来是活着,有片瓦遮头。对一些人,成功看起来是行善、给世界带来些许改变。狂奔不是高尚的工作,但可能如此。我们中自称街头武士的人遵循某种荣誉准则。但不是说必要时我不会开枪打烂你的脸,而是开枪前我会注视你的双眼。
劇透 -   :
Choosing to live the life of a shadowrunner is
not an easy one. Once I made that choice doors
closed behind me, narrowing who I could be. You
still have choices to make and an impossible world
to navigate. You can still take the easy way out
and be a drone. Jack in every day and let them
guide you along the well-paved road. Or you could
step out into the world and look around. Just remember to look behind your back every so often,
because in this world, trouble never comes at you
from where you expected.
选择狂奔者生活不易。一旦做出选择,身后的门便关上了,我的可能选择的道路被缩小。你依然有选择,无情的世界依然等着你探索。你还可以选择容易的路,成为工蜂。接入日常生活,让他们指引你走在铺好的路上。或者你可以踏入世界,四处看看。只是要记得时不时向后看,在这个世界,麻烦从来不会来自你预计的方向。
劇透 -   :
If you are going to run, there are a couple of
things you need to know before you get started.
The frst is employment. We are, after all, at-will
laborers working for the most dangerous forces
on the planet. The man doing the hiring almost always goes by the same name.
如果你打算狂奔,那么开始前有些东西你得知道。首先是找工作。毕竟,我们是自愿劳工,为这个星球上最危险的势力工作。雇佣我们的人总是用同一个名字。
Meeting Mr. Johnson
会见约翰逊先生
劇透 -   :
A common misconception is that we only work
for the corps or the criminals. The nature of shadowrunners as off-the-book agents of change means
that we can work for practically anyone. Corps and
crooks may be the groups that get play on the trideo, but shadowrunners work for anyone willing
to pay. The thing is, we aren’t supposed to know
who we work for. That’s part of the appeal to our
employers. Most shadowruns happen through an
intermediary known collectively as Mr. Johnson.
Sexist, I know, but the gendered term helps reinforce anonymity. Not knowing who you work for
means deniability on both sides. The way it works
is, you or someone you know is contacted by Mr.
Johnson. You set up an initial meeting where terms
of the job are discussed. A small down payment is
generally offered up front to secure your services,
and then you go to work.
我们并非只给公司和犯罪干活,这个是个常见的误解。狂奔者作为改变的暗中代理这一本质意味着我们基本能给任何人工作。三维剧演的可能是公司和骗子,但狂奔者为任何付钱的人工作。重点是,我们不应该知道雇主是谁。这是这点吸引了他们。大部分狂奔行动通过通称“约翰逊先生”的中介进行。性别歧视,我知道,但性别指代有助于增强匿名性。不知道你给谁干活,即双方都可以否认。方法是这样,约翰逊先生联系你或者你认识的某人。你准备初次会面地点,讨论好工作条件。你通常会收到一小笔预付款,保证你接下任务,然后干你的活。
Legwork
搜集信息
劇透 -   :
Shadowrunning isn’t all shoot-’em-ups and slicing through IC, though a lot of us wish it were.
Being good at what we do means doing research
and connecting with people. Once we get the job,
we have to do our due diligence.
Never assume that Mr. Johnson told you the entire story. You’ll only get as much information as
they think you need to know. Any runner who goes
into a run solely on Mr. Johnson’s info is likely
to be carried out by a DocWagon team—if you’re
lucky. Use your connections to fnd out what they
aren’t telling you. Any good runner is going to
make friends in the circles they can’t get into themselves. If you’re not a mage, meet one. Get to know
a smuggler. Find contacts in the corporations who
can give you information you’ll need to do your
job.
Above all else, fnd a fxer. As the name suggests, they’ll have the answers you don’t. They
know what jobs need to be done, and they excel at
connecting teams to the jobs they can pull off. You
want to be one of the teams a fxer trusts.
狂奔不全是射爆和黑爆,尽管我们不少人希望如此。要干得好,需要前期研究、和人交流。我们接到活,就得尽职完成调查。
永远不要认为约翰逊先生告诉了你事情的全貌。你只会得到他们认为你需要知道的信息。完全依赖约翰逊先生的信息的狂奔者很可能被医疗马车抬走——如果够幸运。好狂奔者会在自己无法获取信息的各种圈子里结交朋友。如果你不是法师,去认识个。认识个走私者。找公司里的联系人,好获取工作所需信息。
最重要的,找个掮客。就和它的名字一样,他们有你不知道的答案。他们知道有什么活要干,他们擅长为接到的任务联系队伍。你会希望自己是某个掮客信任的队伍。
On the Run
狂奔中
劇透 -   :
Runs aren’t necessarily one type of thing; therefore, you’ll need to put together a flexible team
that can respond to any situation that presents
itself. You need someone good with their hands
and/or a long gun. It is important to have someone
who can do the talking. You’ll need someone to do
the driving away when talking doesn’t work, or
just when you need to get from point A to point B fast. Break-in and recovery inevitably require Matrix support, so you’ll need a good hacker. Magic
users—spellcasters, summoners, enchanters, what
have you—are your ace in the hole, if you’re lucky
enough to fnd one.
What shadowrunners do is frequently illegal,
so conceal your identity, especially if you’re unlucky enough to have a SIN. Remember what Mr.
Johnson asked you to do, and more importantly
advised you not to do. Shadowruns are delicate
operations that rarely leave room for collateral
damage. Be professional. Every run is an audition
for the next one.
狂奔不一定属于某种类型,因而你需要一支灵活的队伍,能应对任何出现的情况。你需要擅长用手以及/或者用长枪的人。有会说话的人很重要。你还需要有人开车离开说话不管用的场合,还要快速从A地到B地。闯入回收无疑需要矩阵支援,所以你需要个好黑客。魔法使用者——巫术师、咒术师、附魔师,假如你有幸找到一个,将是你藏起来的王牌。
狂奔者的行动常常触犯法律,因此隐藏你的身份,尤其当你不巧正好有SIN时。记住约翰逊先生让你干什么。暗影狂奔是精细活,很少留有附带损失的空间。专业。每次狂奔都是下一次的面试。
Getting Paid
收取报酬
劇透 -   :
All too often, the most dangerous part of any
run is getting paid for it. Mr. Johnson’s anonymity
means that nobody knows who they are if they decide to screw you over. You’re not going to be able
to take them to small-claims court or anything if
they don’t pay. How you’ve decided to get paid
shapes the interaction. Traditionally, runners are
paid in one of three ways: untraceable credsticks,
corp scrip, or equipment. The presumption is that
they wouldn’t pay you in their own scrip—that is,
if they pay you in Ares dollars, they’re likely from
anywhere but Ares. Running for gear may be the
only way to gain access to rare and illegal goods.
Some Johnsons like to deal in corp scrip as a way
to throw you off the employer’s scent, but the
downside is that you have to fnd a way to spend it
or locate a scrip exchange. If you’re given a choice,
credsticks are the way to go. Certifed credsticks
contain funds backed by the Zurich-Orbital Gemeinschaftsbank. Those funds are good anywhere.
I’d say they’re worth their weight in gold, but the
currency is nothing more than digital encryption.
It has no weight. But I digress.
Once terms have been established and a location for the payout decided, it can be a good idea
to treat the meet with the same level of caution you
would any other stage of the run. Make sure to
scout the location ahead of time, maintain security
where possible, and always be on your guard. Mr.
Johnson may be looking to clean up any loose ends
connected to the run, so don’t make it easy for him
to erase you.
许多情况下,狂奔最危险的部分是拿报酬。匿名的约翰逊先生意味着没人知道他们是否决定背叛你们。要是他们不给钱,你没法带他们去小额索偿法院之类的地方。你决定收取报酬的方式影响着你们的交流。基本上,狂奔者有三种获取报酬的方式:不可追踪信用棒、公司券,或装备。假定他们不会用自己的公司券付账——即是,如果他们给你阿瑞斯元,很可能他们是阿瑞斯之外任何一家公司。装备狂奔或许是取得罕见且非法物品的唯一途径。有些约翰逊喜欢用公司券,让你搞不清雇主,但坏处是你得找地方花,或者找本地公司券兑换商。如果有选择,选信用棒。加密信用棒的资金由苏黎世-轨道共同体银行背书。这些钱在哪里都好用。我会说他们等于同等重量的黄金,但货币不过是数字加密信息。没有重量。可我不同意。
定好条件和收取报酬的地点后,最好以与狂奔中任何阶段同等的警惕对待这场会面。确保提前侦察地点,在可能的位置布置安保,保持警惕。或许约翰逊先生打算解决掉所有与狂奔有关的线索,那么不要让他太过轻易地把你抹去。

Downtime
闲暇时间
劇透 -   :
So you got a job. You took all the right steps,
pulled it off, and got paid. What now?
We live our lives between shadowruns. That
means doing more than cleaning our weapons,
studying spells, and maintaining the contacts we
need to survive. In other words, the runs are a
means to an end. Each of your employers has their
agenda and reason for being, so between jobs you
ought to be asking yourself, what is yours?
Until you fgure it out, the Sixth World is flled
with distractions to occupy your time. There is a
sports league for every taste. Baseball, soccer, football, hockey, and basketball are popular draws, but
the modern sports connoisseur is more likely to be
drawn to combat biking or urban brawl. Thanks
to the trideo, you can follow your favorite team
or player from anywhere on the planet (or off).
Speaking of trideo, multi-sensory immersive viewing is about the most addictive thing you can do,
legally. There are channels for every taste and news
trids for every political flavor.
If staying in isn’t your passion, then it isn’t hard
to fnd a joygirl or boy eager to fnd out what is.
Sex is still the oldest and most popular pastime.
The Sixth World can bring it to you, virtually or
otherwise. Just be aware that everything that happens in the Matrix or outside of it can wind up as
someone else’s paydata. Some parts of the world
are pretty laid back about it, so you can do just
about anything with as many consenting individuals as you want, and no one will care if someone
tries to blackmail you about it. Other parts are still
dealing with taboos and restrictions, so be careful
about who might be watching when you cross certain lines.
那么你有活干了。你的每一步都完全正确,你完成了任务,收到了钱。然后呢?狂奔间歇,我们过自己的生活。不仅仅是清理枪械、学习法术、维持我们赖以生存的人脉。也就是,狂奔是通往某种某种的手段。你的每个雇主都有自己的计划和理由,在工作间隔,你也该问自己,你的计划和理由是什么?
在你找到之前,第六纪充斥着占用你闲暇时间的消遣。有每种类型体育联赛。棒球、足球、橄榄球、曲棍球和篮球都是流行项目,但现代的体育观察家更喜欢战斗摩托或城市乱斗。多亏了三维视频,你能够在地球上(或外)的任何地方追踪你喜欢的队伍和运动员。说到三维视频,多感官沉浸式观看可能是最让人上瘾的合法行为。有适合所有不同品位的频道,有适合所有政治观点的新闻。
如果你不热爱待在家中,那么找个可人儿看看你的爱好在哪也不难。性依然是最古老、最流行的消遣。第六纪能给你虚拟或非虚拟的。只是记住,任何发生在矩阵之内、之外的事都能变成某人的有价数据。地球的某些地方放任这类事,你可以和任意数量的自愿个体做任何事,即使有人以此勒索你也没人在意。而其它地方依然有禁忌和限制,当你越线时,当心,或许有人在看。

Ten Ways to Make a Living in the Shadows
暗影谋生的十种方式


Extraction
撤出

劇透 -   :
Once a valuable employee decides to make a move to
another corporation, they must fnd a way to get away from
their employer and to the other corporation. Extractions
are not necessarily friendly. Often a corporation will kidnap
a targeted employee. They haven’t agreed to the transfer.
They’ll have no idea you are coming, and they might well
resist the entire time. Furthermore, extraction orders don’t
always include the target’s family. It is common to show up
to extract a worker only to fnd them sitting down for family
dinner. The choice to extract additional targets is ultimately
yours, but in these situations you are operating without pay
and outside the parameters of what you were hired to do.
They might pay you in gratitude for getting them out, but be
sure you’re getting them to a better place.
若有某位有价值的员工决定去另一家公司,他们必须想办法离开原来雇主。撤出不一定是友好的。经常有公司绑架目标员工。这些员工并未同意转移。他们不知道你要过去。他们可能会一直抵抗。更重要的,撤出任务并不总是包括目标的家庭。经常你出现在撤出地点却发现这名员工正在准备和家人吃晚餐。是否撤出额外的人员由你全权决定,但这种情况下你不会得到额外报酬,也超出了你的雇佣条件。他们可能会出于感激付你钱,但前提是你把他们带去了更好的地方。
Babysitting
看护

劇透 -   :
Often confused with bodyguard work, in this job runners are tasked to protect a location or a person. The job is
straightforward—sit on the principal until a team arrives for
retrieval. Corporations and other employers tend to farm
this work out to gangs. This work is best suited for people
who don’t ask questions. They don’t know or care why they
were hired to sit on the principal, who hired you, or even
what they are protecting. The mission is to make sure the
only people who get to the principal are the ones that know
the password.
看护经常和保镖工作弄混,那类任务里狂奔者需要保护某个地点或某个人。而这种工作很直接——坐在重要地点等一支队伍过来回收。公司和其它雇主喜欢把这种工作派给帮派。最适合那些不多问的人。他们不知道或不在意为什么自己被雇佣待在这个地方。任务目的是确保只有知道密码的人才能进入这个地点。
Protection Detail
派遣员保护

劇透 -   :
Mr. Johnsons and other frontline employers need protection when they meet others to do their work. Corporate workers need protection when they are operating
outside the boundaries of their corporations or off the
books. This work differs from babysitting in that you are
generally protecting the employer, so injury to the employer means you don’t get paid. Beyond that, you are
expected to show a level of professionalism toward the
employer that you don’t have to worry about in a babysitting run. Often the hardest part of a protection detail is
dealing with the principal. Shadowrunners who develop
a talent for this kind of work often wind up up guarding
trid stars and occasionally become signed on to a private
security corp such as Wolverine or Centurion.

约翰逊先生和其它前线雇员在工作中与其他人见面时需要保护。公司员工在公司区域之外工作或非公开行动时也需要保护。这类工作和看护不同,你一般需要保护雇主,因此若雇主受伤,你就拿不到钱。此外,你需要向雇主表现出一定的专业水平,而看护工作一般不需要担心这一点。通常,派遣员保护最困难的部分是与被保护人沟通。长于此道的狂奔者经常会获得保护三维影星的机会,偶尔还能被诸如狼獾和百夫长这类私人安保公司雇佣。
Diversion
诱饵

劇透 -   :
In some circumstances, a location’s security cannot be
breached unless that security is distracted or otherwise dispersed. Shadowrunners can make a name for themselves
getting hired by a corporation or even another runner team
to cause a diversion so the primary run can succeed. Often
this is high risk, because the goal of a diversion is to draw
the authorities away from the real attack. That means everyone will be looking at you—any heat from the job, any
gunfre, will come your way. Employers are not always so
direct about this kind of work, and runners may fnd them selves on a run they thought was real only to discover they were selves on a run they thought was real only to discover they were
the diversion.
有些情况下,一处地点的安保布置难以突破,必须引开安保的注意,或将他们分散。狂奔者被公司甚至另一队狂奔者雇佣,转移安保注意,以便让关键行动顺利进行。这种狂奔者能够以此出名。但这类行动通常有高风险,转移注意的目的正是将当局的安保力量从真正的袭击上移开。这意味着所有人都会盯着你——所有压力、所有子弹都会朝你来。对于这类工作,雇主不总是说实话,狂奔者可能以为在进行真正的狂奔,却发现自己是诱饵。
Straight Thievery
直接盗窃

劇透 -   :
We live in a world of increasingly rare and unique items.
From time to time, runners are hired to steal some of these
items. Occasionally they will be hired by the victim to steal the
item back. Theft is a large part of working with organized crime
syndicates. While bank robbery is rare, syndicates hire runners
to hijack automated cargo trucks, disappear shipments of goods
for the insurance, and rob stores who refuse to pay protection
money. Thievery is also a common part of Matrix shadowruns. A
hacker turned loose in a datastore to steal a specifc fle might
fnd several other fles they can sell on the black market. Taking
more than you were asked to steal is frowned on by employers,
but it’s incredibly hard to track or prove. Most runners view taking extra stuff as valuable side income.
我们生活的世界拥有着越来越稀少的独特物品。时不时会有狂奔者被雇佣盗取这些物品。偶尔雇佣他们的是想把东西偷回来的受害者。盗窃很大一部分属于有组织犯罪。虽然银行抢劫十分罕见,但犯罪组织会雇佣狂奔者劫持自动货运卡车、偷盗运输中的货物骗取保险金、打劫不愿意付保护费的店铺。盗窃也是矩阵狂奔掉的常见内容。一名黑客混进数据库窃取特定文件时可能会发现其它几份能在黑市上出售的文件。拿走你要求之外的文件,雇主会不满,但这一行为极其难以追踪和证明。大部分狂奔者把拿走额外物品当作外快收入。
Datasteal
数据盗窃

劇透 -   :
Companies are always working on the next new prototype.
It is often easier and cheaper to hire shadowrunners to steal a
prototype and all related research data from a company than to
invent new things themselves. Corporate redundancy and compartmentalization mean that often, the data needs to be acquired
from more than one location. One team of researchers could be
working on part of a prototype at one location while a separate
research facility holds the rest of the device. Particularly sensitive
fles may be stored at yet another, air-gapped location. Occasionally this type of work is combined with extraction when an employer decides they need the scientists as well.
各个公司总在研究下一个新原型。雇狂奔者从别的公司偷一台原型机以及附带全部相关研究数据总是比自己研发新的要容易且便宜。企业的冗余以及功能划分意味着需要从多个地点获取数据。一队研究员可能在一个地点研究某原型的一个部分,装置剩余部分在另一个研究设施。特别敏感的文件可能会放在第三个与外界隔离的地点。这类任务有时还包括撤出——假如雇主认为他们还需要研究的科学家。
Wetwork
湿活

劇透 -   :
Wetwork is murder by a sweeter name. Often this kind of
work needs to be done discreetly. The job needs to be made to
look accidental. Runner teams like the Smoker’s Club specialize
in this sort of business. Wetwork is a highly specialized and competitive market. Once you start to make a name for yourself,
you are likely to fnd yourself the target of a rival wetwork team
trying to make a name for themselves or carrying out the orders
of a Johnson who previously hired you.
湿活即是好听点的谋杀。通常需要隐秘完成。需要让死亡看起来像是意外。吸烟者俱乐部(Smoker’s Club)这种狂奔者队伍专门擅长这种工作。湿活生意十分专业,竞争激烈。一旦你有了名气,你会发现自己成了某个竞争团队的目标,可能是想出名,也可能是执行之前雇你的某个约翰逊的任务。
Transportation
运输

劇透 -   :
Smuggling and goods transportation is the backbone of the
black market. Drugs, people, telesma, and tech all move across
borders. Though commonly associated with gangs and syndicates, NGOs and other private-sector interests frequently use
smugglers to move assets. Smugglers, like thieves and assassins, operate as part of a larger network that includes fences
and fxers. Smugglers, however, tend to be regionally based
and have expert knowledge in the geographical terrain of their
home territory.
走私和货物运输是黑市贸易的根基。摄入物、人口、魔法物品以及科技产品都需要穿过边界线。虽然运输通常是帮派和犯罪组织的范围,但NGO和其它私人投资者也常常使用走私者转移资产。走私者和盗贼和刺客一样,都属于一个更大的网络,还包括销赃客以及掮客。但走私者多是区域性的,他们对自己的领地的地理有专业的知识。
Bounty Hunting
赏金狩猎

劇透 -   :
There will always be a market for the hides of rare animals.
In the Sixth World, there is also a market for sentient critters.
From the ghouls of Asamondo to Awakened storm dolphins off
the coast of Australia, there are standing bounties open to any
runner enterprising enough to claim them. Public and private
law-enforcement services like Lone Star and Knight Errant
maintain a less-exotic list of wanted criminals. Thankfully, these
law enforcement organizations tend to not look too closely at
who is picking up the nuyen in these situations.
稀有动物皮毛的市场一直存在。在第六纪,还有灵智怪物的市场。从阿萨蛮多的食尸鬼到澳大利亚海岸的觉醒风暴海豚,都有公开的赏金,供任何有野心的狂奔者攥取。诸如孤星和游侠这类公共和私人执法机构则有不那么古怪的通缉犯赏金清单。幸运的是,这些情况下,执法机构一般不太注意谁拿走了新円。
White Hat
白帽子

劇透 -   :
Runners are sometimes hired to test the capabilities of a
security system. This traditionally happens more in Matrix security than it does in physical security. White-hat runners are generally instructed to not cause lasting damage to the institution
they are breaking into. They aren’t supposed to harm security,
and most importantly, they’re ordered to not steal anything.
Unfortunately, these limitations do not apply to the security elements assigned to stop you. They don’t know your operation
is a test, and they will employ all available means to neutralize
the threat.
狂奔者有时会被雇佣来检测某个安保系统的可靠性。从前更多用在矩阵安保而不是肉界安保。白帽狂奔者一般会被要求不对他们闯入的机构造成永久性损伤。他们不应当伤害安保,更重要的是,他们不能偷任何东西。但不幸的是,这些限制不适用于被安排来阻止你的安保力量。他们不知道你的行动只是测试,他们会使用任何可行手段消除威胁。

The Powers that Be
盘上玩家
劇透 -   :
There’s far too much drek hanging over our
heads to be able to take the long view. Stare up
too long and you can guess what happens. So instead, we keep our heads down. Once in a while,
the clouds part and there is a glimpse of what is
going on in the larger world. Our reality exists in
an employer/employee dynamic that is generally fltered through a middle man. If you’re lucky, you
don’t have to know who you’re working for, but
sometimes it helps. The different types of employers can’t necessarily be stuffed into nice categories,
but I’ll do my best.
我们头上吊着太多烂事,难以取得长远预见。只要盯得够久,你就能猜到发生了什么。因此我们低下头。时不时云消雾散,我们得以一窥更广大世界。我们的生活仰赖雇主/雇员关系,这一关系通常又被一位中间人过滤。如果你够好运,你不需要知道自己在为谁工作,但有时知道也有好处。我没法给不同类型的雇主一个清晰的分类,但我会尽力。

Dragons

劇透 -   :
Here’s the thing about dragons: For as much as
they want to be left alone, they also want to be able
to control what you’re doing, watching, and seeing.
They’re like corps in that way. They fght like corps,
too. Not long after UGE (I’ll cover that in a minute—
see p. 26), the great dragon Aden frebombed Tehran,
killing the ayatollah and everyone else in a fve-mile
radius of his compound after the Muslim leader declared jihad on the Awakened, including metahumans. Aden was protecting assets, plain and simple.
Still, the similarities end there. Thousands of years of
tension, animosity, and planning defne draconian interactions. There’s a story that Alamais and Dunkelzahn used to hire runners to break into each other’s
compounds every year, costing drekloads in nuyen
and lives, all to deliver a fruitcake as a prank. Dragons have their hands in everything. Some control cities or nations, such as Ghostwalker in Denver and
Hualpa in Amazonia. Others have their claws deep
in the world’s fnancial systems. Two of the top ten
megas are at least partially run by great dragons. All
of the great dragons have amassed fortunes beyond
human comprehension, yet it is not clear what a single one of them actually wants or even cares about.
They play long games, their motives are inscrutable,
and it’s not clear if they care about you at all. I’ll tell
you what a runner told me when I got started: Never,
ever cut a deal with a dragon.
关于龙:尽管他们希望自己干自己的,但他们也希望能够掌控你的所行、所见、所闻。在这方面,他们和公司很像。他们也像公司一样争斗。UGE(等一分钟——见p26)后不久,在穆斯林领袖向觉醒者和泛人类发起圣战后,巨龙亚丁用火球轰炸了德黑兰,杀死了他周围五英里半径范围内的ayatollah和所有人。亚丁在保护自己的财产,简单且单纯。但是两者之间的相似也就这么多了。几千年的僵持、仇恨和谋划塑造了龙之间的交往。有个故事是这样的,阿拉密斯和黑牙曾经每年雇佣狂奔者闯入对方的建筑内,造成鬼知道多少新円和人命损失,只是为了给对方送一个恶作剧水果蛋糕。巨龙参与了所有事情。有的控制城市或国家,例如丹佛的幽魂行者和亚马孙尼亚的瓦帕。有的把爪子伸向了世界金融体系。十大中有两家至少是部分由巨龙管理。所有巨龙都积累了不可计数的财富,但不清楚他们中是否有一位真正想要或是在意这些财富。他们放长线,他们的动机难以捉摸,你不知道他们是否在意你。我开始这个行当时有位狂奔者告诉过我一句话,现在我要告诉你:绝不和龙打交道。

Corporations
公司
劇透 -   :
The great dragons don’t live alone at the top
of the food chain anymore. The day magic reemerged, governments took a backseat to more
powerful forces. Corporations became the architects of our awareness. Education, the news,
even social media is fltered through outlets they
control. Unlike dragons, the corporate agenda is
transparent. The goal of every existing corporate
structure is to make nuyen. They accomplish this
goal well, and as a result, corporations influence
the Sixth World more than any other type of employer you will encounter.
No matter how little they want to admit it, corporations need shadowrunners the way cars need
mechanics. Working for the corps represents the bedrock of what shadowrunners do. We are deniable assets. Our job is to carry out the work given to us, get
paid, and forget about everything we just did.
Each megacorporation has its own identity beyond the bottom line. That identity presents itself
in the kind of work they offer and more specifcally, the kind of security you can expect to encounter
when running against them.
食物链顶端不再只有巨龙。魔法重现之时,政府屈服于更强大的力量。公司成为了我们认知的构建者。教育、新闻乃至社交媒体都经他们控制的渠道导出。与龙不同,公司的目的很明显。每家公司的目的都是赚取新円。他们干得很好,因此,公司对第六纪的影响比你预见的任何其他类型的雇主都要大。无论他们有多不情愿承认,狂奔者之如公司正如机械师之如车辆。为公司工作是狂奔者工作的基本。我们是可否认人员。我们的工作是完成给予我们热任务,拿钱,忘掉我们做了什么。
每家超企在底线至上都有自己的特点。表现在他们提供的工作类型,以及更具体来说,针对他们狂奔时你会遇见怎样的安保。

Public Sector
公共部门
劇透 -   :
Governments still matter. Sort of. Local and
federal agencies work to preserve the fragile peace
in the spaces between corporations. That means
plenty of business for shadowrunners willing to
get their hands dirty. As is the case with corporations, you might fnd yourself hired by one part
of the government to run against another in a private war to help someone move a bit further up
the chain of command. Government work rarely
comes from the very top. It is usually doled out
by double-blind mid-level staffers anxious to make
an impression on their bosses. The work you do
can be small potatoes, like kidnapping a local offcial so they can’t make call on a critical vote. You
might also fnd yourself caught up in a larger conflict as many runners did when Aztlan and Amazonia used runners in the run up to their war.
政府还是政府。算是吧。本地和联邦政府机构致力于维持与超企的脆弱关系。这意味着愿意弄脏手的狂奔者会有很多工作。和公司一样,你可能会被政府的某方雇佣去针对另一方,这场秘密战争的目的是让某人在命令体系里爬得再高一点。政府的工作很少来自最高层,而是通常以双盲的方式由渴望获得老板青睐的中层职员派发。你干的活可能只是小事,例如绑架本地一名官员让他们无法提出关键投票。你可能会发现自己陷入了更大的冲突之中,正如许多被阿兹特兰和亚马孙尼亚雇佣用于相互倾轧的狂奔者那样。

Non-Governmental Organizations
非政府组织
劇透 -   :
There are several other organizations that are
neither corporation nor government. Their global
reach and wealth make them relevant to the conversation. NGOs are interest-based organizations
often founded by wealthy donors or through money funneled through legitimate governments. The
Atlantean Foundation and the Black Lodge are two
organizations founded by magic users and whose
primary interests are magic and the recovery of
magical items, while the Draco Foundation and the
somewhat-related Dunkelzahn Institute of Magical
Research were born out of a dragon’s hoard and
exist to carry out his will beyond the grave.
Several popular NGOs known as policlubs exist to promote racial division. The Humanis Policlub is the most well-known. They see human and
meta as a black-and-white division, like good vs.
evil. One guess as to which side they think is good.
While Humanis is the pinnacle of rage, hatred
comes from both sides of the racial divide. That
work is based on shifting the perceptions of the
races they hate or improving the perceptions of
their own.
Universities can be just as dangerous as
megacorporations, because they are often locked
in a competition where name recognition directly
correlates to funding. Faculty extractions are commonplace, especially between the public and private universities.
有些组织既不是公司也不是政府。但它们的全球影响力和财富使得它们成为这次谈话的内容。NGO是基于不同目的建立的组织,通常由富有的资助人或合法政府赞助建立。亚塔兰蒂斯基金会和黑结社都是由魔法使用者建立的,他们的主要目的是魔法以及获取魔法物品,而巨龙基金会以及姑且和它有联系的黑牙魔法研究院都诞生自一头龙的财产,在他死后继续追求他的目标。若干叫做政治俱乐部的NGO的目的是促使种族分裂。人类至上政治俱乐部是其中最出名的。他们认为人类和泛人类之前的差别如同黑与白,正义与邪恶。你可以猜猜看他们认为那边是善。人类至上是愤怒的顶峰,仇恨来自种族对立的两边。他们转变对仇视种族的看法,或提高对自身种族的看法。
大学可能和超企一样危险,他们陷于相互斗争之中,这里知名度直接影响赞助。设施撤出十分寻常,尤其是公立和私立大学之间。

Organized Crime
有组织犯罪
劇透 -   :
Syndicates might be the last bastion of cultural
exclusivity. Yakuza, Mafa, Triads, Native American Koshari, Vory v Zakone, elven Laesa, Seoulpa
Rings—there is no shortage of criminal syndicates
to get involved with. Syndicates are street-level performers heavily involved in traffcking and protection schemes. They operate in specifc geographical
turf, and getting involved with a syndicate tends
to mean doing work that protects their turf. There
is money to be made working for one syndicate
versus another, but be careful about forming allegiances, because once you do, you become the
enemy of everyone else in the cesspool.
The lowest level of organized crime is the street
gangs. These are local organizations usually anywhere from ten to one hundred members. Some
gangs reach beyond their sprawl, spreading their
wings and making a name for themselves. The Cutters come to mind, with chapters in multiple cities.
犯罪辛迪加可能是文化排他性最后的阵地。极道、黑手党、三合会、美洲原住民的克夏利(Koshari)、俄罗斯黑帮、精灵的莱斯、首尔帮——可供加入的犯罪辛迪加从不匮乏。辛迪加都是街头活动,主要涉及非法贩卖和保护费。他们在特定地区的领地,和辛迪加扯上关系通常意味着要保护他们的领地。帮一个辛迪加针对另一个能挣钱,但要当心和他们结盟,因为一旦结盟,你就成了这个污水池里其他所有人的敌人。
最低级的犯罪组织是街头帮派。这些地区性的组织通常由10到100名成员。有的帮派拓展至自己的蔓城之外,羽翼渐丰。切割者(Cutter)就是一个。他们在多个城市都有分部。

Private Individuals
个人
劇透 -   :
Not all running jobs come from organizations.
Rich celebrities, so-called immortal elves, philanthropists, digital lifeforms, and free spirits all
might have their own agendas to advance in the
shadows. They aren’t as global as corporations,
but the problems that impact their lives and create work opportunities for us are no less dangerous. As expected, a bunch of the work you get is
bodyguard duty, settling old scores, and suppressing information they’d rather not have leak out.
However, private sector work can offer the illusion
of benefting the greater good. Many of the jobs I
come across are anti-corp or jobs that help out the
little guy. I’m sure these employers are playing an
angle, but taking a minute to do some good helps
offset the all the drek I do for the corps in order to
keep the ramen coming.
并非所有狂奔工作都来自组织。有钱人、所谓的不朽精灵、慈善家、电子生命体以及自由精魂都有可能有需呀在暗影中进行的计划。他们不像公司那样全球化,但那些影响到他们的生活、并为我们创造工作机会的问题却同样危险。如你预料,你会得到不少保镖、寻仇,以及压着他们不愿泄漏的信息的任务。但私人工作也能带来“服务大义”的错觉。我接到过许多反公司或帮助小人物的活。我确信这些雇主是在巧妙地实现自己的目的,但花一分钟做好事能帮我抵消那些为了继续吃拉面而为公司干的烂事。

全球总部:日本帝国,京都
CEO/总裁:东四郎·三津滨
三津滨庞大、高效,忠于日本帝国。最后一条不完全真实。没有哪家公司像三津滨一样把董事会内的事务藏得那么好。它团结和安静的行事方式是日式商业模式的榜样。然而升至首位后,这家公司开始出现成功倦怠,团结的模式逐渐断裂。每个大股东都开始私下将股份卖给未知对象。更不祥的是,一些旧领导班子的成员,例如主要持股人弘伦·山名(Korin Yamana)和荣誉董事会顾问大贺·三津滨(Taiga Mitsuhama),神秘死亡。通常来说,改变是好事。然而十大顶端的变化通常伴随混乱——和许多狂奔。

Corporate Slogan: “The Future, Brought to You by Mitsuhama”
Corporate Status: AAA, public corporation
World Headquarters: Kyoto, Japanese Imperial State
CEO/President: Toshiro Mitsuhama
Mitsuhama is massive, efcient, and faithful to the Japanese Imperial State. Except that
last one is not entirely true. No other company
has done such a good job of hiding the truth
of what goes on inside their boardrooms. It is
a credit to the Japanese way of business that
the company has stayed so steadfast and silent. However, since
their rise to number one, the company has suffered from success fatigue and the lines of solidarity are beginning to fracture. Each of the major shareholders has begun privately selling off stock holdings to unknown parties. Even more ominous,
members of the old leadership caste, such as key shareholder
Korin Yamana and honorary board advisor Taiga Mitsuhama,
have died under mysterious circumstances. Under normal circumstances, change is good. However, change at the top of the
Big Ten tends to come with chaos—and lots of shadowruns.

Corporate Slogan: “One Step Beyond”
Corporate Status: AAA, private corporation
World Headquarters: Neu-Essen, Allied German States
CEO/President: Lofwyr
The great dragon Lofwyr harbors a
distaste toward fellow Big Ten CEO Johnny Spinrad, the roots of which are too
detailed to explain here. Despite a lack
of evidence, S-K holds SpinradGlobal at
least partially responsible for its recent troubles, which resulted in a fall from the top spot of the Corporate Court rankings.
Lofwyr’s corporation failed to claim the top spot due in part to
a series of shadowruns that impacted sales fgures in a number of key industrial areas. Even as the corporation is moving
to settle that score, Lofwyr is presently at odds with dragon
Loremaster Celedyr, presenting S-K with an entirely new set of
allies and enemies. S-K is the only corporation bold enough to
shun the Mr. Johnson moniker, instead calling their operatives
Herr Brackhaus, a strategy that has led runners to know when
they are working for S-K and to act accordingly.

联络的CEO是稻造·姉木,他用黑牙赠与的一件小礼物踏入了西藏周围不可穿过的迷雾。姉木没有归来,在65年被宣布法律上死亡。尽管如此,关于姉木以精魂形态生活甚至出现在董事会成员面前给予指导的传言一直经久不息。无论真假,姉木的位置和投票权仍然属于他。下津·佐佐木(Orito Sasaki)负责公司总裁一职,四家·中臣(Shikei Nakatomi)负责董事会主席一职。两人对联络的未来计划并不一致,导致的内部冲突为许多狂奔者提供了生意。

Corporate Slogan: “Let Us Serve You”
Corporate Status: AAA, public corporation
World Headquarters: Chiba, Japanese Imperial State
CEO/President: Inazo Aneki (Honorary)
Renraku is known for two things: the massive worldwide
SIN database, which they maintain, and the Red Samurai. The
latter are the elite security forces of the corporation, known
by the red samurai (natch) armor they wear. Make no mistake,
this isn’t shogun cosplay. If you see a Red Samurai, you’ve wandered into someplace very important to
the corporation, and they likely don’t
want you to emerge alive.
Renraku’s CEO is Inazo Aneki, who
used a trinket gifted to him by Dunkelzahn to step through the impenetrable
veil that surrounds Tibet. Aneki never
returned and was legally declared dead in ’65. In spite of this,
rumors persist that Aneki lives on in spirit form and even appears to members of the board to offer instruction. True or
false, Aneki’s seat and vote remain his. Orito Sasaki operates
as president, and Shikei Nakatomi chairs the board. The two
don’t see eye to eye in terms of Renraku’s plans for the future. The resultant infghting has kept a lot of shadowrunners

Some corporations run cities. Aztechnology owns a country. The corporation
evolved from a collaboration of drug cartel leaders who were treated like folk heroes in their hometowns. Grandmothers
prayed for their safety. Now they pray for
the life of Flavia de la Rosa. Aztechnology is a way of life. When
the company’s beliefs shift, the beliefs of a nation shift with
it. This folk-hero mythos makes Aztechnology extremely dangerous on their home turf. Outside of Azzie-land, the company
works to build that type of public support with the people and
cities with which it interacts. Yet, behind the façade, Aztechnology is dedicated to two things: growing its brand and expanding its land.

Corporate Slogan: “Advancing Life”
Corporate Status: AAA, public corporation
World Headquarters: Osaka, Japan
CEO/President: Tadashi Shiawase
Perhaps the oldest recognized
megacorp, Shiawase suffers from the
failure of notoriety. The company’s energy production and manufacturing divisions are household names. However,
the company’s other named divisions traditionally underperform when given the
Shiawase label. People still don’t expect the company running
the power plant to be named after the one serving them sushi. Disconnected branding led to the company lingering near
the bottom of the top ten for years. During the megacorporate
audit, Shiawese’s new leadership began to snap up small but
popular national and A-rated corporations, rebranding them
under the Shiawase name. This lifted the company’s image
immediately. As this strategy continues, other larger corporations are taking notice. In the shadows we know Shiawase
for its Marketing Forecasting and Information Division (MFID),
a predictive think tank that works to shape the stock market
through purchases, rapid sell-offs, and yes, shadowruns.

Corporate Slogan: “We’re Behind Everything You Do”
Corporate Status: AAA, public corporation
World Headquarters: Hong Kong, Free Enterprise Enclave
CEO/President: Sharon Chang-Wu
Sharon Chang-Wu elevated her company on the spiritualist principles of Chinese numerology. That
belief system has led to unusual habits. In
fact, Wuxing is known to have sabotaged
itself once it gained the number-four
ranking in order to avoid staying at that
level and being closely associated with
the number of death in numerology. That
brand of mysticism impacts the relationship Wuxing has with
shadowrunners. The company is notorious for hiring runners
to break into a facility for mundane tasks like moving a chair
from one side of the room to the other, thus disrupting the
feng shui. When it comes time for payment, expect odd denominations whose meanings reflect numerology. Just be
careful your fee doesn’t end in a four.

而天演选择了另一种方案,放弃与其它日本公司保持一致,将公司总部搬至俄罗斯。天演不仅拥抱泛人类的领导,还接受了自我演化的理念并深信不疑。感知到泛人类市场的利润后,这家公司迅速调整了策略扩张不同种族的市场。天演欢迎改变,最终让自己成为了最主要的泛人类雇主。那么天演接纳单子文化也是十分自然的转变。天演这样的公司认为未来属于后人类。而我们其他人还没决定是否如此。

Corporate Slogan: “Evo is Acceptance”
Corporate Status: AAA, private corporation
World Headquarters: Vladivostok, Russia
CEO/President: Ysil
Evo was born out of the ashes of the Yamatetsu Corporation. After the eruption of the Ring of
Fire in 2061, the corporation named its
frst metahuman CEO. This move rankled
the Japanese rank and fle. While Japanese citizens could stomach the idea of
a manga-esque free spirit named Buttercup owning thirty percent of the company, an ork at the helm was just too much.
It led other Japanacorps to suggest that Yamatetsu appoint
someone more suitable to be the face of the corp.
They went the other way, ditching the lockstep philosophy
of the Japanacorps and physically moving the HQ to Russia.
Evo didn’t only embrace metahuman leadership, They took
hold of the idea of evolution itself. Sensing a potential for
proft, the company quickly adjusted to the expansion of racial
groups. Evo leaned into the change, ultimately leading them
down the road of becoming the premier metahuman employer.
It was a natural transition then for Evo to accept the Monad
culture into the fold. Corps like Evo recognize that the future is
posthuman. The rest of us haven’t decided that yet.

CEO/President: Damien Knight
Ares is the world leader in combat
applications. This shows in their own security forces, such as the elite Firewatch
Brigade, which came to notoriety during
the Chicago Containment. The rank-andfle of Ares security is Knight Errant, a subsidiary that is second
only to Lone Star as a worldwide police force. This is notable,
because if you’re wanted by KE in one part of the world, then
that warrant extends globally. The corporation is in the midst
of a massive PR campaign following the Excalibur rifle debacle,

and killing people who were trying to use it to injure and kill

to help rebrand the corporation. There is plenty of work to go
around cleaning up their image. Rumors abound of other difculties behind the scenes, including their longstanding battle

explored many paths to ending their troubles. Some of their
solutions may well be explosive.

A Brief History of the Sixth World
第六纪简史
劇透 -   :
I’m sure the history lessons from your corporate-funded primary school did a great job of sharing the version of history according to whatever
corp footed the bill. There is nothing wrong with
that. Everyone tells the same story about the big
moments. What is lost are the connective fbers
between those moments. History is the timeline
sprinting backward from where you are right now,
zigging and zagging between those huge datapoints. If you’re here reading this, then where you
are now is in the shadows. There is no corporation
shelling out cash to turn this into the history they want. In spite of the specifc circumstances that
led you here, there are certain inexorable occurrences that made it certain that you had no other choice than to become a runner. If you’re with
the church set you might think all of this is God’s
plan—whichever God you subscribe to, of course.
These aren’t necessarily in chronological order. In
our lifetimes, a lot of bad drek tends to happen all
at once, and only after we’ve sifted through the
wreckage do we start to approach the idea of what
came frst and how it all affects us. This world is
harsh and unfriendly, but it also makes a drekload
of sense. You pull on the right threads, you can
trace where your life is now all the way back to
the beginning.
It all started with a plague.
我确定你们公司资助小学里的历史课好好讲过了付账公司喜欢版本的历史。那些没什么错。关于大事件,每个人的说法都是一样的。缺少的是这些大事件之间的连线。历史时从你的现在往后回溯的时间线,在巨大的数据点之间折行。如果你现在在读这份文件,那么你现在身处暗影。这里没有公司花钱按他们的意愿扭曲历史。无论什么情况让你到了这里,一定是有某种无法避免的原因让你成为一名狂奔者。如果你信教,你或许会认为全都是神的意志——当然无论你信哪个神。
这些内容不都是按照时间顺序。在我们的生活里,许多破事经常同时发生,我们只有在随后的废墟里翻找才能知晓最初发生了什么、将怎样影响我们。这个世界不宽容、不友好,但它也很合理。只要沿着正确的线,你就能从你现在的生活一路追溯到开始。
从一场瘟疫开始。
VITAS and UGE
VITAS和UGE
劇透 -   :
Virally induced toxic allergy syndrome (VI
TAS) hit the world in two waves. The frst emer
gence of the disease was in 2010 in a crowded
corner of New Delhi. The disease caught like dry
kindling and spread across the planet. By 2011,
one out of every four people on the planet was
dead or dying from the disease. The hardest hit
were the densest world populations of China,
Bahrain, and Bangladesh. Mexico was the frst
government to collapse under the weight of the
disease. Its citizens predictably fled north toward
the promise of medical care.
What happened next is still the subject of speculation. Unexplained genetic expression (UGE)
touched ten percent of the remaining population.
Children were being born with signifcant physi
ological differences from so-called normal kids.
The media quickly classifed these changes into
catchy categories with names borrowed from pop
ular fantasy: dwarf and elf. Soon after, the phe
nomenon called Goblinization introduced orks
and trolls. Like VITAS, there wasn’t a person on
the planet who didn’t know someone affected by
these changes. The new meta-racial emersion knew
no class. They try to make it seem otherwise now,
but the elves weren’t all born to wealthy parents,
and the trolls and orks weren’t all dumped into the
slums. My father was born to a wealthy Texas-oil
family, and they hid him from the public because
he was born an ork.
病毒诱发毒性过敏症(VITAS)两次袭击世界。这种疾病第一次出现在2010新德里一个拥挤的角落。如同点着的干草,它传遍了整个星球。2011年,每四个人中就有一个死于或正要死于这种疾病。最严重的是人口最密集的中国、巴林和孟加拉。墨西哥是第一个在疾病重压下崩塌的政府。它的国民都为了治疗跑到了北边。
接下来发生的事情依然只是推测。剩余人口中10%发生了不明基因表达(UGE)。孩子出生就带有与其他所谓普通孩子明显不同的生理特征。媒体很快把这些变化用流行奇幻的名字分类:矮人和精灵。不久后,称作哥布林化的现象带来了兽人和巨魔。和VITAS一样,时间上没有哪个人不认识一位受影响的人。新的出现的泛种族部分阶级。现在有人想让它看起有区分,但精灵不都是富裕家庭的孩子,巨魔和兽人也不都是出生在贫民窟。我的爸爸出生在一个富有的德克萨斯石油家族,他们把他藏起来不见人,因为他是个兽人。
劇透 -   :
Goblinization sparked fears that this was a
side effect or even the next wave of VITAS, but
that wave was still to come. It hit in early 2022
and resulted in the death of another ten percent of
the remaining population. None of the emerging
metaraces were spared. However, VITAS helped
us metahumans because it allowed the research
to be done to prove that goblinization was not
a side effect or infection path of VITAS. Doctors
discovered that UGE was not even a disease in
and of itself. UGE was the genuine emergence of new races. We’d learn soon enough that those
myths and legends that inspired the names of
those races had a basis in reality. But before we
could set about to working together, the pope gave
a speech that stopped just short of justifying the
murder of metahuman children. What it did was
announce that it was okay to hate metas, and that
hate came fast and hot. Ayatollah Hamidullah of
Iran declared jihad against metahumanity, only to
have the great dragon Aden declare war on the
ayatollah, and win it forcefully. That didn’t stop
the spread of hate, and hate groups formed in
every nation. Some continued to blame VITAS on
metahumans even though they had zero evidence.
哥布林化引发恐惧,人们担心这是VITAS的副作用,甚至是VITAS卷土重来,但它还没来。VITAS再次袭来是在2022年,又导致了剩余人口中10%死亡。新出现的泛种族未能幸免。但VITAS的确帮助了我们泛人类,它促成的研究证明了哥布林化不是VITAS的副作用也不是VITAS的传染途径。医生发现UGE本身甚至不是一种疾病。UGE是新种族的基因表达。我们很快知道那些赋予新种族名称的神话和传说的确有现实基础。但在我们能够团结一致前,教皇发表演说,内容仅限没有正当化谋杀泛人类儿童。但他却宣称仇恨泛人类毫无问题,而仇恨来得又快又狠。伊朗的阿亚图拉Hamidullah对泛人类发动杰哈德圣战,导致巨龙亚丁对阿亚图拉宣战并凭借暴力取得胜利。但这并未停止仇恨的蔓延。有人继续将VITAS归罪于泛人类,哪怕他们什么证据也没有。
劇透 -   :
Sometimes people said that tensions between
metatypes overwhelmed tensions based on skin
color, but it’s not so simple. Those old tensions
didn’t flame out. The arrival of the new races was
more like throwing napalm on a forest fre. Suddenly everyone had an “other” to be mad at, and terrifyingly fewer of “their own” that they needed to protect. A second wave of UGE called SURGE
struck with the return of Halley’s Comet in 2061,
setting off a new wave of racism as more meta
variants poured into our world. It proved once and
for all that UGE was unrelated to VITAS—not that
the true deniers even cared.
Being so far removed from that plague, it’s hard
to think about what losing one out of four people
globally actually did to society. Above all else it
created a power vacuum that the corporate world
was in the best position to fll.
有时候人们会说泛种族间的紧张关系超越了肤色问题,但事情没那么简单。旧冲突并未消解。新种族的到来更像是火上浇油。突然间每个人都有了“其他人”作为仇恨对象,“自己人”势单力薄需要保护。被称作SURGE的第二次UGE随着2061年的哈雷彗星一同到来,更多泛类型诞生,导致了新一轮种族歧视。但它又一次证明了UGE与VITAS无关——但否认者不在乎。
瘟疫已经过去了那么久,现在很难想象全球失去四分之一人口会对给社会带来什么影响。在一切影响之上,它为超企创造了完美的权利真空。

Dawn of the Megas
超企黎明
劇透 -   :
The bottom line about the corps is this: They run the world. It wasn’t always this way. It took the birth of extraterritoriality to push us kicking and screaming into this new reality. We have Shiawase to thank for that. The 2007 Shiawase decision opened the floodgates to corporate overreach. The U.S. Supreme Court ruling leaned heavily on the argument that corporations were beholden to customers, not governments. Government interference stood in the way of a company’s ability to serve its customers.
公司的要旨是:他们管理世界。不总是这样。治外法权的诞生,逼迫我们边踢边尖叫进入这个新的现实。我们要谢谢幸福。2007年幸福决议为企业过度扩张打开了闸门。美国最高法院的裁决在很大程度上依赖于这样一个论点,即公司是对客户负责,而不是对政府负责。政府的干预妨碍了公司为顾客服务的能力。
劇透 -   :
Corporate overreach was inevitable from that point. With many restraints falling by the wayside, owners and shareholders started demanding ever-more rapid growth, without ever stopping to ask whether their demands were realistic. They responded by exploring new avenues of growth, one of the quickest being acquisitions. They merged and acquisitioned their asses off, growing larger and larger until the system that ensured fair competition bent and finally broke. Eventually, the U.S. ratified the Business Recognition Accords (BRA), moving to treat specific corporations as sovereign entities, conferring to them the recognition and resulting powers of a nation. Other governments followed suit. Today, extraterritoriality is recognized by most standing governments. The ones that refuse face pressure to cave.
从这一点上说,企业的过度扩张是不可避免的。随着许多限制被抛诸脑后,所有者和股东开始要求更快速的增长,从来没有停下来问他们的要求是否现实。他们的反应是探索新的增长途径,其中最快的就是收购。他们合并并收购了自己的资产,规模越来越大,直到确保公平竞争的体系屈服并最终崩溃。最终,美国批准了商业承认协议(BRA),将特定公司视为主权实体,授予它们国家的承认和由此产生的权力。其他政府也纷纷效仿。今天,治外法权得到大多数常设政府的承认。那些拒绝的人面临着屈服的压力。
劇透 -   :
After the BRA, diversified conglomerates squeezed every market until the idea of mom-and-pop industries didn’t exist. That commlink you bought? Mitsuhama. Its cheaper off-brand competitor? Also Mitsuhama. The artisan-designed commlink with the bells and whistles from a small independent you’ve never heard of? You guessed it: Mitsuhama. Everything became a conglomerate, and the idea of choice breeding competition became a piece of history. Even the American dream shifted. Individuals no longer started businesses to run them, but instead to be bought out by larger corps and cash in.
在BRA事件之后,多元化的企业集团挤压了每个市场,直到家庭企业的概念不复存在。你买的那个通讯器?三津滨。它更便宜的非品牌竞争对手?还是三津滨。这个来自一家你从未听说过的小型独立公司、由工匠设计的、附带闹钟和哨音的通讯链?你猜对了:三津滨。一切都成了一个大集团,通过选择诞生竞争的想法成为历史。就连美国梦也改变了。个人不再创业、不再经营,而是被更大的企业收购并套现。
劇透 -   :
That would be fine, maybe, if not for the loss of rights that came with this new reality. Empowered by their size, megacorporations argued that civil-rights laws worked to actively disadvantage the corporations in terms of hiring and promotion practices. They made it seem that the goal of civil rights was to hinder corporations by forcing them to hire employees according to a universal set of rules that did not reflect the culture or goals of the corporation. Laws once designed to criminalize race or poverty were re-legislated to actively work against worker rights. Wage slavery was born.
如果不是因为这个新的现实带来的权利的丧失,这也许是可以的。大公司凭借其规模优势,辩称民权法在雇佣和晋升方面对公司不利。他们认为,民权的目标似乎是通过强迫公司按照一套不反映公司文化或目标的普遍规则雇用员工来阻碍公司的发展。曾经旨在将种族或贫困定为犯罪的法律重新立法,以积极反对工人权利。雇佣奴隶制度诞生了。
劇透 -   :
Today’s corporate world is a lot like the highschool lunchroom of your nightmares. Corps buy up other corps to protect their rating—their seat at the table, and everyone wants a seat at the table. The higher up you go, the smaller and more exclusive the table gets. There are ten kids at the head table. Together, they form the Corporate Court. When the Corporate Court first started, there were only seven members: Ares, BMW, JRJ, Keruba, Mistuhama, Shiawase, and ORO. If you hold the core ownership of one of these seven, you get a seat on the Corporate Court, guaranteed. These corps came together to form the rating system that determines extraterritoriality.
今天的企业界很像你噩梦里的高中餐厅。企业并购其它企业,好保护他们的评级,他们的座位在桌上,每个人都想拥有桌上的座位。你往上走越高,桌子就越小,越排外。头桌上有十个孩子。他们一起组成了公司法庭。公司法庭刚成立时,只有7名成员:阿瑞斯、宝马、JRJ、科鲁巴(Keruba)、三津滨、幸福和ORO。如果你拥有这七家公司中的一家的核心所有权,你就可以在公司法庭上获得一个席位。这些企业联合起来形成了决定治外法权的等级制度。
劇透 -   :
The corporate rating system is a complex series of checks and balances, but all that really matters are the three ratings at the top. A-ranked corporations are those that have amassed enough assets to extend across multiple nations, though they don’t have to be fully diversified in their business lines. It takes AA status to get you extraterritorial status, and the Court guards that entry like a watchdog. Being part of the exclusive AA group isn’t a permanent thing. Corporations are subject to random audits to determine if their assets still meet the requirements of AA status. AAA ratings are reserved for the corps that have a seat on the Corporate Court. The order of the ten changes from time to time, but it takes a catastrophic change to lose your seat entirely. This is what happened to NeoNET. The breaking up of the company came from a lot of sources, including Court edicts, but you cannot ignore the role of the shadows in bringing their role in cognitive fragmentation disorder to light and then helping some hostile takeovers of some of their assets. In the end, shadowrunners helped push NeoNET out of their seat. Who is the next Big Ten to tumble? You may find yourself in a position to play a role in that.
企业评级体系是一系列复杂的制衡机制,但真正重要的是三大评级名列前茅。排名A的公司是那些积累了足够的资产在多个国家扩张的公司,尽管它们的业务不必完全多元化。需要一个AA的地位才能使你的获得治外法权,而法庭像一个看门狗一样守着入口。成为AA的一员并不是一件永久的事情。公司将接受随机审计,以确定其资产是否仍符合AA状态的要求。AAA评级是为在公司法庭上有席位的公司保留的。这十个位子的顺序有时会改变,但完全失去你的位子需要一个灾难性的改变。新网就是这样的。这家公司的分拆来自很多方面,包括法院的法令,但你不能忽视暗影的作用,是暗影让他们在CFD中的作用暴露出来,并协助了一些他们资产的恶意收购。最后,狂奔者的协助让NeoNET被推离了席位。下一个倒下的十大是谁?你可能会发现自己在其中扮演了一个角色。
劇透 -   :
As a result of corporate sovereignty, the world went from having just shy of two hundred countries to having half as many AA-rated and AAA-rated corporations, each with its own extraterritoriality, right to print its own currency, and standing army. Corporations gained the power to challenge and even take over nations. Prior to VITAS, nations were the shells corporations gestated in. When the Mexican government collapsed in 2015, a new way of corporate thinking was born. A group of drug cartels quickly organized to form ORO, which would eventually come to be known as Aztechnology. ORO became the first corporation to seize control of a nation. Parts of the Native American Nations understood that the new world order wasn’t just a matter of power but of corporate leverage. A collection of tribes formed and incorporated the Pueblo Corporate Council. Because the corps were so influential in keeping the world running during the troubles, nobody spent much time worrying about the problems with extraterritoriality. By the time anyone did, it was too late.
由于公司主权,世界从仅有不到200个国家变成了拥有一半那么多的AA级和AAA级公司,每个公司都有自己的治外法权、发行货币权和常备军。公司获得了挑战甚至接管国家的权力。在VITAS之前,国家是孕育皮包公司的地方。当墨西哥政府在2015年垮台时,一种新的企业思维方式诞生了。一群贩毒集团很快组织起来,形成了ORO,最终被称为阿兹科技。ORO成为第一家控制一个国家的公司。部分美洲原住民明白,新的世界秩序不仅仅是一个权力问题,而是一个企业杠杆的问题。普韦布洛部组成了成普韦布洛公司理事会。因为军队在困难时期对维持世界运转的影响力如此之大,没有人花太多时间去担心治外法权的问题。当有人这么做的时候,已经太晚了。

The Crash of ’29
29年崩溃
劇透 -   :
You could argue that the history of the Sixth World can be traced along the transaction history of a company called Fuchi and its ugly roller coaster ride to become NeoNET. That story begins with the Matrix Crash of 2029. At that point, the network that had been called the internet was ubiquitous. It was also completely unprotected. The Crash virus overwhelmed the network instantly. Cars stopped dead on the road, the banks went dark, and the virus brought global chaos as it spread. Our world, barely recovering from the trauma of UGE, was code-deep in a new nightmare.
可以说,第六纪的历史可以追溯到一家叫作富积的公司的交易史,以及它成为新网那丑陋而又起伏的过程。这个故事始于2029年的矩阵崩溃。那时,被称为互联网的网络无处不在,也完全没有受到保护。崩溃病毒立即让网络停转。汽车在路上熄火,银行陷入黑暗,病毒传播给全球带来了混乱。我们的世界,刚刚从UGE的创伤中恢复过来,却陷入了一场新的噩梦。
劇透 -   :
The American government commissioned a team called Echo Mirage to use elite hacking tools known as cyberdecks to enter the grid and confront the virus before it could destroy any more of the network infrastructure. Make no mistake, Echo Mirage was the birth of shadowrunning. The thirty-two people sent into the net to face nascent black IC were an expendable black ops team. They knew it. Seven people survived the run. Four of those seven immediately dropped off the grid and used the payday they scored to create new lives for themselves. Some remained in the shadows and are the reason JackPoint exists. Two others used their newly found expertise to form Fuchi Industrial Electronics.
美国政府委托一个名为回声蜃影的团队,他们使用叫作赛博碟板的精英黑客工具进入网域,在病毒摧毁所有网络基础设施之前对抗病毒。没错,暗影狂奔诞生自回声蜃影。这32个被送进网络中面对初生黑IC的人是一支消耗性的特殊部队。他们都清楚。有七个人逃过一劫。这7人中有4人立即离开网络,利用他们获得的报酬为自己创造了新的生活。有些留在暗影中,成为了接入点存在的理由。另外两人利用他们新获得的专业知识组建了富积工业电子公司。
劇透 -   :
The Crash broke the world. Governments, cash, resources, and data starved, and alliances and partnerships broke, shifted, and were newly built, further redrawing the global map of power. Beyond the physical repercussions, the Crash also revealed a truth we’d long feared: artificial intelligences (AIs) stalked the matrix. They would remain out of play for the moment, but not forever.
崩溃摧毁了世界。政府功能、资金、资源和数据被消耗殆尽,同盟和伙伴关系破裂、转移和重构,进一步重绘了全球权力版图。除了物理上的影响之外,崩溃还揭示了一个我们长期以来担心的事实:人工智能(AI)一只在矩阵里徘徊。他们会暂时退出,但不会永远消失。

Bug City
虫城
劇透 -   :
Cockroaches are bad enough when they are three centimeters long and crawling along your baseboards. Now imagine them taking the form of spirits and manifesting on our plane of existence in bodies the size of a car. It sounds like a horror movie. It also sounds like a damn powerful military asset. Nobody really blames Ares for trying to militarize bugs. We just blame them for screwing it up.
3厘米长的蟑螂你的走线版上爬行已经够糟糕了。现在想象他们变成了精魂的并出现在我们位面,有汽车那么大。听起来像恐怖电影。这听起来也像是强大的军事资产。没有人真的责怪阿瑞斯试图把虫子军事化。我们只怪他们搞砸了。
劇透 -   :
The nightmare of Bug City can be traced back to an NGO called the Universal Brotherhood (UB). The organization billed itself as being “dedicated to bettering the quality of life for all people.” Predictably, they set themselves up in the inner cities where the people had no hope and no economic voice. The UB, as it turned out, was a front for the bugs. The organization was collecting people to use as hosts for bug spirits. They set up hives all over the world in preparation for a bug invasion. Ares had some knowledge of what was going on and had set up monitoring on one of these hives in Chicago. They allowed the UB operation to continue until they realized it was much larger than they could handle. Things escalated with mind-warping speed. The military joined the fight and Chicago was walled off, trapping thousands of citizens inside the Containment Zone. The area strangled Chicago’s economic development.
虫城的噩梦可以追溯到一个名为环球兄弟会(UB)的非政府组织。该组织自称“致力于改善所有人的生活质量”。毫不意外,他们在人们没有希望、没用经济话语权的中心城市起家。事实证明,UB是虫子的掩护。这个组织在召集人成为虫子的宿主。他们在世界各地建立虫巢,为虫子入侵做准备。阿瑞斯对正在发生的事情有些了解,并对其中一个在芝加哥的虫巢进行监视。他们允许UB继续运作,直到他们意识到它超出了自己的处理能力。事情以惊人的速度升级。军方加入战斗,芝加哥被隔离,数千名市民被困在隔离区内。隔离区扼杀了芝加哥的经济发展。
劇透 -   :
One thing we know about bugs is they don’t ever pop up where we want them to. Another thing we know is that once they’ve taken root, nothing short of a nuke will get them out. Ares tested that theory, setting off a tactical nuke inside the Chicago Containment Zone. It wasn’t enough. The blast destroyed a large population of the bugs, but enough remained to keep Chicago walled off for another decade while the UCAS military worked to cull the insects. The city has been open for a few years now, but the bug problem is not solved. Far from it, in fact. Try to get bugs out of one place, and they pop up somewhere else. The bug threat isn’t gone or even forgotten—far from it. Everyone holds Ares responsible for the situation as it is, and the corporation knows they need to do something in order to save face, and maybe deliver a decisive blow to the bugs.
关于虫子我们知道的一件事,就是它们永远不会出现在我们想让它们出现的地方。我们知道的另一件事是,一旦它们扎根,只要不是核武器都赶不走它们。阿瑞斯验证了这点,他们在芝加哥隔离区内引爆了一枚战术核弹。可这还不够。爆炸摧毁了大量的虫子,但剩下的还是足够让芝加哥在未来十年内继续被隔离,好让美国军队努力扑杀这些虫子。这座城市现在已经开放了几年,但虫子问题还没有解决。事实上,还差得远。把虫子从一个地方赶走,它们就会在别的地方出现。虫子威胁并没有消失,甚至远未被遗忘。每个人都认为阿瑞斯应该对现在的情况负责,公司知道他们需要做些什么来挽回面子,也许是对虫子进行一次决定性的打击。
劇透 -   :
Of course, in the Sixth World, no problem stays one thing for very long. I mean, why be one thing when you can be a whole clusterfrag of nightmares? The Containment Zone holds more than just bug spirits. Creatures infected with various strains of the human-metahuman vampiric virus (HMHVV) haunt the ruins, stalking the living and waiting for a chance to feed on them. There are parts of the Containment Zone like the Shattergraves, the ruins of the Sears Tower, where ghouls far outnumber the living, which means accidentally wandering into the wrong area means you quickly shift from living being to lunch. While the Infected make many people nervous—and for good reasons—many of them simply want to find a way to live in this world, just like everyone else, and some of them have found a home in the shadows.
当然,在第六纪,没有问题会仅仅只是单一问题。毕竟,当你能有一大堆噩梦的时候,为什么只要一个呢?控制区不仅仅有虫精魂。感染了各类人类-泛人类吸血鬼病毒(HMHVV)的生物出没在废墟中,跟在活人身后,等待进食机会。隔离区的某些部分,如碎坟地(Shattergraves),也就是西尔斯大楼的废墟,那里的食尸鬼数量远远超过活人,这意味着如果不小心走入了错误的区域,你很快会从活人变成午餐。虽然感染者让很多人紧张——理由充分,但他们中的许多人只是想找到一种生活在这个世界上的方法,就像其他人一样,而一些已经在暗影中找到了家。
