The events that made the newsfeed on our little corner of the
Matrix seemed like unrelated incidents, when we caught them
at all. Only later, in the fullness of hindsight, was it even possible
to attempt to connect the dots. If you wish to do so now, here
is everything that happened, in chronological order, and our
commentary on it at the time.
One thing is clear, though: No one was prepared for this.

September 1: Perianwyr  Arrested for Spirit Summoning & “Treason”

九月一日:佩里安尼尔因精魂召唤&“背叛”被捕
发帖人:Kat o’ Nine tales

Denver isn’t really my town, but Perianwyr is my kind of
dragon, and this is just dreadfully bad news. Because nearly
absolute power over a city-state is apparently all the justifcation
Ghostwalker ever needs to act like an absolute asshole all the time,
the white wyrm has taken his draconic cousin Perianwyr into state
custody. Ofcially, Ghostwalker’s ofce has released a statement
that Perianwyr is being held until he is tried for both “illegal
bondage of sapient beings” and “treason.”
丹佛不算我家,但佩里安尼尔是我认可的龙,这真是绝望的坏消息。对一个城市-国家近乎绝对的权力显然足够正当化幽魂行者永远像个混蛋的行为,这头白龙将他的龙族表亲置于了政府看管之下。幽魂行者的办公室发表了正式声明,称佩里安尼尔在因“非法限制智能个体”以及“背叛”受审前都将被关押。

judicial powers and whatnot? I didn’t think he really rolled that
way.

Ghostwalker serves as judge, jury, and executioner isn’t common,
but it’s not without precedent either. None of the nation-states
whose districts are part of Denver are particularly eager to claim
Perianwyr when Ghostwalker is this pissed off.

Ghostwalker outlawed the spontaneous summoning, binding, and
banishing of spirits in Denver, punishable by expulsion or imprisonment. Needless to say, this was a big deal to all of the region’s
mages. It’s frankly an insane law, and this is the most dramatic
and public example I’ve seen of it actually being enforced.

Perianwyr was taken in to the ZDF headquarters in the Hub,
sedated, in chains, and contained in a dragon-sized manacofn
shortly before noon this morning. He was actually taken into
custody in an abandoned park in the Aurora Warrens just afer
midnight; Zone Defense Force special forces and mages sprung
an ambush on him, throwing a net over the poor dragon and
overwhelming him with a barrage of stun spells, large animal
tranquilizers, and taser rounds.
佩里安尼尔今天中午过后不久被收押在市中心的区防总部,注射了镇静剂,被锁在一个龙大小的法力棺里。他实际是午夜过后不久在奥罗拉荒地(Aurora Warrens)一个废弃停车场被逮捕的;区域防御部队特别部队和法师对他发动突袭,用一张网罩住这头可怜的龙,用连串的晕眩法术、大型动物镇静剂和泰瑟镖打晕了他。

Since being taken into custody, Perianwyr has been denied
either visitors or bail. Tis means Ghostwalker can keep him
bottled up pretty much indefnitely before getting together whatever kangaroo court he believes in appropriate. Peri’s contacts in
the music industry, from promoters to club managers to artists,
are very unhappy, but for the most part they are staying tight
lipped about it except in the company of each other. Publicly denouncing a dragon like Ghostwalker, let alone retaliating,
is way out of their league. For my part, I’m fucking pissed.
Perianwyr’s one of the good guys as far as I’m concerned, and no,
I don’t just mean “for a dragon.”
Whatever his reasons for bailing out these Aztechnology
guys, they don’t change that. Te best I can do for right now is
make this injustice known. I don’t expect anyone with any real
clout in Denver to care what I think, but Ghostwalker is way out
of line this time.
佩里安尼尔被收押后,对他的探访和保释都被拒绝了。这意味着在幽魂行者找齐他认为合适的袋鼠法庭前,他能无限期关押佩里安尼尔。佩里在音乐产业的人脉,从宣发到俱乐部经理到艺术家,都很不开心,但大部分时间他们除了相互间都守口如瓶。不要说报复了,公开反对一头幽魂行者这样的龙,都是远超他们的能力所及。而我,我气得要死。
在我关心的范围内,佩里安尼尔是个好家伙,以及,我不是说“以龙的标准”。
无论他解救那些阿兹科技家伙的原因是什么都改变不了这一点。我现在能做的就是揭露这一不公正的行为。我没指望哪个真的在丹佛势力范围内的人在意我的看法,但这次幽魂行者越线了。

剧透 -   :
Music fans whose tastes grew up in the good and crazy times
of the 2060s have a cause to weep this Friday, as the legendary
Weekday Eclipse club in Downtown Denver has been torched.
Te club was closed during the day as usual, in preparation for
tonight’s concert, where legendary turbo-punk rockers Blitzkrieg
would be putting on a special concert headlining alongside
classic shadowband Te Elementals. It was well known that the
concert, ofcially titled “1-2-3-4 Fuck Te Pigs” (a reference to the
Japanther cover that helped make Blitzkrieg famous) and known
informally in shadow circles as “Rock Against Ghostwalker,” was
designed to raise both awareness and donations for Perianwyr,
Weekday Eclipse’s manager.
在60年代培养出优秀而疯狂的音乐品味的乐迷们这周五要哭了,丹佛市中心的传奇俱乐部周中日蚀被点着了。这家俱乐部白天照常关门,以准备今晚的音乐会,传奇涡轮朋克摇滚歌手“闪电战”(Blitzkrieg)将与经典暗影乐队“元素”(The Elementals)一同举办一场特别音乐会。音乐会官方名称为“1-2-3-4 Fuck The Pigs”(纪念他们翻唱的Japanther歌曲,他们也因此成名),在暗影则被叫做“摇滚对抗幽魂行者”,它的目的是引起人们对佩里安尼尔,周中日蚀的老板的关注,以及募集资金。

Now that won’t be happening, nor will anything be happening
at the Weekday Eclipse in the near future. Some time before doors
opened for the big Friday night show, the club exploded in flames.
Zone Defense Force arson investigators are blaming the combustion on faulty electrical wiring, but having been around the block a few times myself, I can recognize both arson and bullshit when I see them.
音乐会不会有了,近期内周中日蚀也不会举行任何活动。周五之夜开门前一段时间,俱乐部发生火灾爆炸。区域防卫部队纵火调查员归因于电路短路,但我自己去过那块几次,我能认出纵火和胡扯。

It’s plain that this atrocity was done to add insult to injury (or
vice versa) and to further punish Perianwyr for his transgressions
(imagined or otherwise), just as much as it was done to intimidate
the groundswell of popular support that has arisen for him. And
the disgusting thing is, it’s worked to some degree. Fortunately,
few people except club employees and security professionals were
injured in the fre, but if the frebombing had happened during
the show, the casualties would have been in the hundreds, and the
celebrity casualties in the high dozens.
很明显这件暴行是为了给佩里安尼尔的伤口(可能不只)上撒盐,进一步惩罚他的背叛(无论是否存在),还有恐吓高涨的支持者。可恶的是,它在某种程度上做到了。幸运的是,除了了俱乐部员工和安保人员外没多少人受伤,但加入火灾和爆炸发生在音乐会当中,伤亡会上百,其中名人有好几十。
剧透 -   :
While Blitzkrieg’s PR people have started trying to plan a
new venue for the concert, and have called the fre a tragedy,
the band hasn’t publicly come out and denounced Ghostwalker.
Most likely, whoever took over their management for Ceol
Productions since Perianwyr became exposed didn’t want the
notoriously hotheaded frontmen saying anything too overtly
suicidal.
Still, it’s hard to deny that Ghostwalker is not the same since
he came back. He’s gone mad with power, and he’s taken this
grudge way too far.
闪电战的公关人员开始尝试寻找新的音乐会场地,并将火灾称为一场灾难,乐队没有公开发言谴责幽魂行者。很可能佩里安尼尔曝光后接替他管理科尔制作(Ceol Productions)的人不希望以性急着称的乐队成员说出太自杀式的话。
然而,无法否认幽魂行者归来之后变了很多。他因权力而疯狂,他将积怨看得太重。

It’s almost like Ghostwalker’s entirely stopped caring what people

matter, even if there’s no offcial investigation. You don’t need to
be a regular on JackPoint to tie this run to Ghostwalker.

9月20日:丹佛弑神者——帮派洗牌
发帖人:Stone
剧透 -   :
A couple years back Traveler Jones posted a data dump on
Denver’s syndicates and gangs based on his friendly chats over drinks
with mouthy Dean Costello at the Tower of Babel nightclub in the
Hub. Jones doesn’t live in Denver any more than he can be said to live
anywhere else, but I do make my home there at least half the year, so
here’s an update. So much crazy shit shook out in the last week that
the whole second half of the previous fle has just become irrelevant.
It started Monday when the pretty boy dynamic duo that
runs the elf heavy Godz go-gang, Rex Paquette and Apollo, were
both found dead in a small park off of I-70 near Wheat Ridge in
the PCC sector. Not just regular dead, either; the drone footage
I’ve seen of their bodies being removed by PSE is pretty gruesome.
几年前Traveler Jones发了一包丹佛犯罪组织和帮派的信息,来源是他与多嘴的Dean Costello在市中心巴别塔夜店喝酒时的闲聊。琼斯不住在丹佛,也不住在别的地方,但我的确在过去半年把那当成了家,这里是信息更新。上周发生了太多疯狂的狗屎事情,前一份文件的后半成了毫不相干。
先是周一,掌管精灵为主的暴走帮“葛兹”(Godz)的漂亮小伙二人组,雷克斯·帕克特和阿波罗,被发现死在了PCC区一个小停车场,在I-70公路旁边,靠近惠特里奇。不是正常死亡;我看到的无人机录像显示已经被PSE(译注:Pueblo Security Enterprises, Inc,普韦布洛安保集团有限公司)移开的尸体相当血腥。

kind, something messy and personal. Also defnitely not how I

Te Godz weren’t feuding with anyone, so this took them by
surprise and then some. Numerous other less-famous members of
the gang have turned up dead in ditches alongside I-70 throughout
the PCC sector, mostly victims of vehicular homicide.
葛兹没有和谁结怨,这让他们措手不及。还有很多不那么出名的成员被发现死在PCC区I-70公路沿途,大部分是载具谋杀。

The upshot of all of this is that the Godz, as an organization, no longer functionally exist. Whatever’s left has
no organization, leadership, or safe haven to protect them,
and will probably be picked off in the next couple of weeks
by (in roughly decreasing order of likelihood) the Vory, the
Dogmen, the First Nations, or local law enforcement. So one
of Denver’s top-tier gangs has vanished overnight in a coordinated, focused, and efficient strike that, in a very un-gang-like
manner, no one has taken credit for.
Whodunnit? Well, the obvious question is who stands to
beneft. Te Fronts are the next largest go-gang in Denver, so
they’re possible suspects if you assume they’re looking to expand
their limited cells in the PCC into a substantial presence in Pueblo
Sector, and all that comes with it (adding a third law enforcement
agency for them to contend with). Te brutality of the killing,
however, doesn’t seem to be their style at all; if Amy Steur, the
Fronts leader, wanted to take out Rex and Apollo, she’d have challenged them one on one in a very public arena.
结果就是,葛兹作为一个组织,已经不复存在了。仅存的人员没了组织、领导、安全屋保护,接下来几周很可能会被几个组织吸收(可能性粗略地从高到低):俄罗斯黑帮、狗人(Dogmen)、第一民族(First Nation),还有本地执法部门。丹佛的一线帮派一夜之间被协调、集中、有效的攻击清除了,但没人承认。
谁干的?这么说,明显在问谁受益了。前锋(The Fronts)是丹佛第二大暴走帮,要是你怀疑他们寻求将势力从PCC的小格子扩展到普韦布洛区的重要玩家、以及随着而来的好处(再加上需要对抗第三支安保力量),那么他们可能是嫌疑人。但杀戮的残忍程度似乎完全不是他们的风格;如果前锋的领袖艾米·斯特劳打算取代雷克斯和阿波罗,她会在公开场合一对一挑战。

directly after the aging don in Dallas-Ft. Worth, or after both of his
sons, if they had operatives in Denver looking to hurt the Chavez
family; nothing so indirect as the Godz.

But wait, it gets weirder. I’ve heard that the Cyberspace
Designs Hornet F21 drones that the Godz got from Emilio have
wound up in the hands of the Aurora Angels, a hacker gang based
out of the Aurora Warrens. Te Angels are a tier or two below the
Godz (or were—I guess they just got promoted), and they don’t
have the muscle or manpower to either take out Rex and Apollo
or expand into the Pueblo Sector.
But word on the streets is that the Aurora Angels were just
absorbed into the Fronts, who they warred with a couple years
back. Apparently their leader, Base-13, was reluctant, but his
lieutenant, a technomancer by the handle of Tenebrous, was
instrumental in brokering the deal. The Hornet drones were
reportedly part of that deal. So the Godz are done for, Pueblo
Sector is gang territory up for grabs, and the Aurora Angels have
just become the largest and most influential chapter of the Fronts.
What next?
但是等等,更古怪了。我听说葛兹从埃米利奥那弄到的赛博空间设计·大黄蜂F21无人机落到了奥罗拉天使(Aurora Angels)手上,这是一个在奥罗拉荒地(Aurora Warrens)活动的黑客组织。天使比葛兹低了一两级(或者说曾经——我猜他们等级提升了),也没有足够的实力和人力去袭击雷克斯和阿波罗,或者扩张到普韦布洛区。
但是街头传言称奥罗拉天使刚被前锋吸收,他们几年前还在争斗。显然他们的首领,基数13(Base-13),不太情愿,但他的副官,一个自称“阴郁之人”(Tenebrous)的超链者,主导了双方合作。即是,葛兹完了,普韦布洛区的帮派领地等待认领,奥罗拉天使成了前锋里最大、最有影响力的分部。下面还有什么?

>    Actually, my contacts have the details on how the illustrious
“merger” of the Fronts and the Aurora Angels went down.
Apparently, the Yakuza somehow discerned that young Miss
Tenebrous was a technomancer (I’m surprised it took them so
long, although she tried to keep a low profle). The Denver Yaks
have a sideline in grabbing, bagging, and selling technomancers,
and they’ve become quite good at it. The Yaks or some runners
they hired—details are sketchy—made such a grab for Tenebrous
at a time and place where there weren’t nearly enough Angels
around to make a difference against the Yak muscle. Then the
Fronts—or again, some runners associated with them—rode in like
the cavalry in a flatvid Western, fghting off the Yaks. Of course,
they didn’t do it out of the kindness of their hearts. The entire
incident left Tenebrous deeply in their debt. Rather than lose his
Matrix specialist to defection, Base-13 decided to throw in the
entire gang’s lot in with the Fronts.

deal between the Angels and the Fronts. See, I know this all the way from Seattle, with the magic of the Matrix. No idea what
Costello’s interest is in getting involved in gang politics, though.
Maybe I’ll crack into his commlink and fnd out if I get bored.

OCTOBER 2: ZONE DEFENSE FORCE CRACKS DOWN AFTER TERROR ATTACKS
POSTED BY: 2XL
10月2日:区域防卫部队遭恐怖袭击
发帖人:2XL

剧透 -   :
Tings have just gotten a whole hell of a lot hotter in the
Mile High City. Yesterday and today, Zone Defense Force
patrol vehicles and checkpoints have come under numerous,
concentrated, and frighteningly successful terrorist attacks. Te
pseudo-random acts of violence have all followed a certain pattern,
involving hit-and-run tactics, improvised explosive devices, and
signifcant collateral damage and civilian casualties. Te culprits
seem to be members of the nomadic Zombies thrill gang, although
the number, frequency, and geographic spread of the attacks all
seem to exceed the Zombies’ current manpower.
英里高城里,事情变得烫手许多。今天和昨天,区域防卫部队的训练载具和检查点遭到了大量密集的恐怖袭击,恐怖的是都成功了。看起来随机的暴力行动遵循特定模式,包括了“打了跑”战术、临时爆炸装置以及可观的附带伤害及民众伤亡。犯人似乎是流动的寻求刺激帮派,僵尸帮(Zombies),的成员,但袭击的人数、频率以及波及范围都超出了僵尸帮当前的实力。

>    That’s a troubling understatement. The Zombies are a third-tier
thrill gang, little more than a bunch of psychotic nobodies with
some motorcycles, a yellow school bus covered in graffti and
armor, and a theme. These guys barely manage to not get wiped
out slinging Mafa-supplied BTLs on the streets. They don’t—or
at least shouldn’t—have the organization or frepower for this
kind of thing.
>    Traveler Jones
>    Nobody can deny they have the balls for it, though.
Disorganized and dumb or not, these are some hardcore crazy
motherfuckers. Like if-everyone-in-the-Halloweeners-got-afree-combat-bike crazy.
>    Kane
>    Here’s the anatomy of a typical hit, based on one I had the misfortune to personally witness. Some hacker or corner kid prank calls
local law enforcement with something big and juicy, like a downed
t-bird or (ironically) a bomb threat. Something that requires local
law enforcement—whether it’s Lone Star in the CAS Sector or Eagle
Security in the Sioux Sector—to call out to the ZDF force. The ZDF    arrives on scene in a heavy patrol vehicle, usually something with
muscle and off-road capabilities—a General Products COP, Ferrari
Appaloosa, or Rover Model 2068—and park up on the roadside.
While they’re looking around for the cause of the call or
touching base with headquarters, a lone Zombie on a bike, usually
wearing gang colors, rides up nonchalantly alongside the vehicle
and tosses a short-fused IED underneath the chassis of the patrol
vehicle before riding off. One violent explosion and a geyser of
mangled body parts later, what’s left of the ZDF patrol is fring
off parting shots at the gangers as they roar away.

>这是严重低估了。僵尸帮是个三流刺激帮,比一帮有几台机车、一辆喷了黄色涂鸦的校巴、护甲,还要自己主题的路人疯子好点。这些家伙因为在街上叫卖黑手党的BTL才勉强没被抹去。他们没有——或者是不应该有这种程度的组织或火力。
>Traveler Jones
>但没人否认他们有胆。虽然毫无组织,又蠢又笨,但他们是帮硬核的疯子。那种“如果万圣帮里每个人都有免费战斗机车”式的疯狂。
>Kane
>这是一次袭击的报告,我不幸成为了目击者。一些黑客还是街头恶作剧的小孩打电话给当地执法部门,说有大事件,比如有架雷鸟掉下来,或者是(很讽刺)炸弹袭击。总之是需要执法部门——CAS区的孤星还是苏族区的神鹰安保——呼叫区防部队。区防坐着厚装甲的巡逻车来了,一般有火力和越野能力——通用产品的COP、法拉利阿巴鲁萨或者是罗孚2068型,停在路边。
当他们寻找报警来源,或是和总部联络时,一个僵尸坐着机车,通常穿着帮派颜色的衣服,毫不在意地经过车子旁边,往车底扔一个易爆的IED(译注:简易爆炸装置)。剧烈爆炸,肢体横飞,剩余的区防巡逻还要忙着给逃跑的帮派成员饯别的子弹。

>    Classic insurgency tactics. While this kind of warfare isn’t going to
put a big dent in the ZDF, it is going to hurt their morale, knowing
that any of their random patrols can be targeted at any time. The
attitude that’s going to foment isn’t going to win them any friends
either. On a hearts and minds level, it’s smart and effective.

>    Picador
>    The IEDs they’re using are a bit like old-school pipe bombs, only
they must be packing more wallop than a standard high-explosive
grenade to be able to punch through the underbelly armor of an
SUV and cause those nice secondary explosions. Wonder where
they got ‘em?
>    Beaker
>    The Zombies managed to pull off several of these attacks? The
Zombies? Seriously? Those guys are more of a bad joke than a brain
trust. What about the big magical and Matrix support the ZDF pulls?
>    Haze
>    It would be standard priority under Hototo’s policies for ZDF
Mages and Shamans to send off spirits in hot pursuit of the
suspects with crimes like this. Something seems to be stopping
those spirits. Like they were being, well, eaten by larger spirits,
or banished by a powerful mage. Details are sketchy, because
ZDF survivors and frst responders are concentrated on trying
to medevac their blown-up guys, not getting the straight skinny
from their summoned and bound spirits.
>    Ethernaut
>经典的暴乱战术。虽然这种战争对区防不算什么,却会有损他们的士气。他们知道任何一次巡逻随时都可能被袭击。袭击挑起的气氛也无助他们找到盟友。精神和头脑是,都是聪明有效的战术。

>我认为你忘了“恶心且毫无人性。”
>Picador
>他们用的IED有点像老式管状炸弹,但他们一定塞了比普通高爆榴弹要多的分量,才能穿过SUV底盘的装甲、造成漂亮的二次爆炸。好奇他们从哪弄到的?
>Beaker
>僵尸成功完成了好几次类似的袭击?僵尸?认真的?他们就是个笑话,才不是什么脑力顾问。区防的魔法和矩阵支持呢?
>Haze
>在胡托托(译注:Javier Hototo,贾维尔·胡托托,区防指挥官)的政策下,通常区防的法师和萨满派出精魂追踪这类犯罪。似乎有什么阻止了精魂。就像是,好吧,被更大的精魂吃了,或者是被强大的法师驱散了。细节很模糊,区防的生还者和首先抵达的反应部队都专心把被炸的队友送上急救直升机,无暇顾及召唤和束缚精魂的实际情况。

killed the Godz. I’ve heard that the Zombies had a serious grudge
against those pretty-boy elves based on aesthetics alone; pretty
sick business for a matter of taste and appearances, but who am I
to judge? Or maybe whoever’s backing the Zombies wanted them
out of the way.
>    Riser
>    Oh, it gets better. The ZDF have thus far been unable to track them
through technological means either. They are getting serious Matrix
cover from somewhere, just fucking disappearing from traffc
cameras, surveillance drone footage, and MeFeeds that should be
showing them. After the hits, they just straight vanish.
>    Glitch
>    I’ve actually seen some of the trideo footage of Romero, their leader,
speeding away from one of these messy bombings—right before he
vanishes from the feed entirely. That’s a nice Edgecrusher Combat
Bike he’s got himself, but I would think that an experimental
prototype bike like that would be outside the means of a two-bit
gangbanger. The Zombies seem to have found themselves some
serious backers with deep pockets. I bet the autocannon on that
bad boy is great for running and gunning at ZDF patrol vehicles.

>Riser
>哦,越来越棒了。区防迄今也无法用科技手段追踪他们。他们从某处得到了很好的矩阵掩护,他们本该出现在交通摄像头、侦察无人机片段和MeFeed推送里,但都消失了。袭击之后,他们就这么没了。
>Glitch
>我见过他们的头罗梅罗的三维录像,他正迅速远离一次混乱的爆炸——然后就完全消失了。他骑了台不错的极限粉碎者(Edgecrusher)战斗机车,但我觉得这种试验原型机超出了下等帮派成员的水平。僵尸似乎给自己找了个口袋很深的赞助人。我打赌那个坏小子上的自动加农很适合袭击区防巡逻车。

Prior to these attacks and Ghostwalker’s disappearing/reappearing act, the ZDF was more laissez-faire than ever with T-Bird
smugglers coming in and out of the city. Now they seem to be
swinging, pendulum-like, in the exact opposite direction. ZDF
is reinforcing border checkpoints with heavy machine guns and
spirit overwatch, upgrading the frmware on their SIN verifcation
systems, and strengthening patrols to military level. Running the
border into Denver, or even crossing from sector to sector, is going
to get a lot harder in the coming weeks and months.
Zone Defense Force press releases emphasize how they are
working to cooperate with local-sector law enforcement to bring
these dangerous criminals to justice, but they haven’t speculated
on how the Zombies got either the motivation or the means
to make these assaults. Ghostwalker has been unavailable for
comment on these attacks, although his ofce has issued a fairly
boilerplate statement condemning them and offering condolences
to the families of the slain ZDF heroes.
这些袭击和幽魂行者的消失/出现之前,区防比以往更放任走私者开着雷鸟出入城市。现在他们似乎像钟摆一般摆向完全相反的方向。区防正在用重机枪和精魂监视加强边境检查点,并把巡逻部队提升到军队级别。未来的几周和几个月,通过边境进入丹佛,哪怕是从一个区到另一个区,都会越来越难。
区域防卫部队进行新闻发布会,强调他们如何与区内安保力量合作,将这些危险的犯罪分子绳之以法,但并未指出僵尸的动机及进行这些袭击的手段。幽魂行者未作出评论,但他的办公室发表了一份相当官样的生命谴责犯罪、慰问被杀区防英雄的家人。

>    ZDF raids of known Zombies hideouts apparently have turned
up nothing but a bunch of hapless posers and hangers-on that
didn’t seem to know much of anything about much of anything.
Unfortunately, ZDF and Lone Star showed up in such overwhelming
force that most of those know-nothings, along with plenty of moreor-less innocent bystanders, went home in body bags. Romero and
the rest of the Zombies have not been found.
