Harvest of Flesh
West Chicago is a turbulent place to live at the best of times. The streets are lethal, poverty is the rule rather than the exception, and when the government can’t afford to have private security actively patrol the wards, anarchy reigns. However, there is an aura of fear on the streets tonight, because a recent rash of murders is numbering unchecked into the hundreds. The main suspects are so-called “chrome reapers,” viscious gangs of murderous thieves who maim and kill their victims in order to take expensive cyberware implants, which they then sell on the black market. It is into the troubled Aurora Barrens that our intrepid PCs play the role of a “Shadow Team,” a mercenary group specialized to take on legally-questionable jobs of espionage, investigation, or downright thievery…for the right price.
