The Reality Hackers are a techno-gang out of Puyallup proper, near the Puyallup River and Tacoma. They go in for a sleek techno look and feel, with exotic cybereyes, metallic cyberlimbs and everything in chrome and gold. Most members are human: the gang recruits from runaway corporate kids, concentrating on the Tacoma area.
The Hackers pay for their techno-toys through theft, datasteals, chips and pirated software along with more traditional ganger fare. They’ve turned a large abandoned warehouse along the river into their own private headquarters/ nightclub, where they stash a fair amount of computer gear for their own use along with high-tech audiovisual systems for parties.
