The massive Renraku arcology, once the crown jewel of Seattle architecture and sightseeing, has become the biggest mystery in the metroplex. This huge. truncated pyramid rises nearly one thousand meters into the sky above the waterfront and stretches more than ten huge city blocks on each side. Its dark walls are covered with silver-green tinted windows. The building bears the Renraku logo and name in bright red-and-blue neon. The arcology is a self-sufficient fortress. a city within the city. Currently, the arcology is in complete lockdown mode. Armored doors cover every entrance and exit. Automated security systems sweep every side and prevent anyone from getting too close. The building’s Matrix connections are off-line, and no one is receiving any transmissions or broadcasts from within. Magical wards surround the building. keeping astral intruders out. Nobody knows why the arcology is locked down or what has become of the 100,000 people believed to be trapped inside. E.ven Renraku doesn’t seem to know what’s going on inside its own building. The rumor mill is buzzing with stories. blaming everything from some kind of secret corp test to a hidden nest of bug spirits to little green aliens from inside the hollow Earth.
