Wuxing Spy

Smogg often provides his sponsor Mei Chaofeng with data around his shadowrun activities. This section covers how the data is collected, and how it is used. Smogg has bought off the qualities day job and electronic witness, so he is mechanically free to choose not to record or to set a price on his data.

  • Data is by default delivered after the run, but can be set to intervals or streaming.
    • Hook: Mei Chaofeng may request this for missions of particular interest.

Data Usage

Most data goes directly to Mei Chaofeng who hold a high position within Wuxing Seattle. She uses this data to further her own career and Wuxing Inc. in general.

  • Rival Mega Corporation data is of primary interest
    • Used for corporate intelligence
    • Used in relation to the Megacorp Audit
  • Other Corp data and Organized Crime data is secondary interest
    • Used for investments and hedge funding
    • Used to understand Organized Crime trends
  • Shadow community data is of tertiary interest.
    • Used to identify qualified resources
  • Mei Chaofeng has no interest in incriminating herself or her agent. She will handle the data with that in mind.

Backstory

Shen Ming was born in Hong Kong. His family has served Wuxing for generations and is well respected. Shen Ming was taught business skills, but it soon became clear that he had a talent for the Matrix, and he took a track towards Matrix Security. Fully trained he transferred to Seattle of the position as Security Spider. He had a promising life and fell in love with Lìxúe. During his professional life, he prevented a group of hackers on a Wuxing Host from sinking a Wuxing Mega Cargo Carrier. However not without getting bricked and he spend several months in hospital with severe trauma, and the migranes would not seem to fade Slowly he came to realize that his condition was caused by his mind opening to the resonance, and when he finally began to embrace it, the pain disappeared. Unfortunately Technomancy within a Megacorporation is problematic and he soon realized that without a license and the blessing of Wuxing, his days as a brilliant and well paid corp spider were numbered.

Mei Chaofeng, a resourceful executive in the Seattle branch would not let an opportunity slip by easily. She has promised Shen Ming to set him up with a proper license and to let him return to his position. However, first she would need some important work done. Specifically she needs financial data on all rival Megacorporations in relation to the Megacorp Audit. Ms. Chaofeng has set up Shen with records of memory loss and a "recovery" arrangement. She further put him in contact with Xiao, a solid fixer. His biggest regret is leaving Lìxúe when he turned to shadowrunning. With a proper runner team and training he will under his new handle "Smogg" eventually penetrate target corporations and retrieve essential data. With his dream link, he is trying to get a better understanding of his own mind and the Resonance. Meanwhile his cyber-eyes and -ears feeds data back to his Wuxing contact.
