Event 13 Rumours

Freelancers are reporting a string of missions to acquire paper documents rather than digital records. These seem to be largely quite mundane information as well, nothing corporate, nothing scientific, nothing of what anyone would consider real worth within the Zone. Enquiries have not led towards an identity for the hirers of these missions, but staff at all the various bars insist these missions are benign.

An unknown party has been claiming to have found the body of Malcolm Cartwell, one of the first truly legendary freelancers, who vanished in early 2026. Claims of Malcolm's death were disputed by a great many people and it was widely believed he had gone into hiding in pursuit of some great secret. The unknown party is said to be seeking aid in recovering the body, and they have given no details on how recently he would appear to have died.

Freelancers are reporting at least six separate individuals asking after someone with a metal face who appears out of thin air. Suspicions are growing that this is a coordinated manhunt, which suggests government. It isn't clear what they want with this person but they are putting a significant amount of effort into finding them.

A handful of people have reported suddenly finding themselves in a strange place, standing in a puddle of vomit. They can't explain how they got where they were, and when people have checked up on them they've seemingly lost anywhere from a few hours up to a couple of days of their life, with no memories from the time lost. Freelancers have been warned that a new narcotic may be responsible, and to be on guard for people selling spurious pills.

The High Rollers may finally be on their way out. A series of failed business ventures have hit them hard, and while several individual members remain quite wealthy by Zone standards, the faction's pooled resources are reportedly all but depleted. These rumours are damaging recruitment, and the group may not function as a collective for much longer.

Recent bounties posted for various types of soft drink in intact cans have all been traced back to one freelancer, a chap calling himself Buzzby. It isn't clear why he wants the cans, or why he is willing to commit so much money to them. A few people have tried to track him down, but cannot find him or anyone that knows him. All of the bars where bounties have been posted insist that the money is real and Buzzby has an account with the necessary funds to pay out. When pressed as to his whereabouts, description or affiliations, the bar staff have repeatedly stated they will not divulge client information. None of the four bounties have been claimed yet.
