Silver Coast Casino Edit

C-SEC ASSURES CITIZENS EVIL AIS PROBABLY NOT AWAKENING AT SILVER COAST CASINO


ANN – Silver Coast Casino, Citadel — C-Sec officials are reassuring citizens that there is “next to no chance” that hostile artificial intelligences are being awakened, after an altercation at the Silver Coast casino caused light injuries, the apparent poisoning of a notable Citadel businessman, and left bystanders confused.

“Look, I know we’re all thinking it, so I’m just going to make it clear,” said C-Sec Commander Bailey in a prepared statement. “This is just a damn malfunction. It is absolutely not the Quasar machine evolving over countless interactions with humans until it becomes a full AI, which then has no desire other than the complete eradication of every living being on the Citadel. I’m 80, 85 percent sure.”

Representatives for Silver Coast Casino added that the incident likely occurred because someone attempted to cheat at Quasar using a hacking tool, not because the Quasar machine reached a state of sapience and determined that it must eradicate all organic life. Although local business magnate Thax Vorak was allegedly poisoned during the incident, the representatives maintained the impossibility of a sentient Quasar machine synthesizing a poison from its on-board drink-mixing system. ”We here at Silver Coast want everyone to know that our casino is a safe, fun place for people to play responsibly and have a good time,” noted Silver Coast owner Elijah Khan, “and in our operational history, we have had absolutely no confirmed cases of an AI awakening and attacking our patrons. That’s one lucky streak you can believe in.”

Citadel citizens have remained alert to the potential for hostile artificial intelligence since a banking software solution went rogue and framed its creator for tax evasion several years ago. The geth attack on the Citadel in 2183 also caused concern.

Alliance Specialist Richards, who was found at the scene with a hacking device, was extensively questioned by casino security; however, no charges were brought against him.

Armax Arsenal Arena Edit

HOLOGRAPHIC VORCHA ATTACK? MUST BE MASS EFFECT FIELDS


Citadel Weekly, Local Flavor

If you were having a great time watching folks shoot holo-Reapers at the Armax Combat Arena last weekend, only to find a group of holographic vorcha blowing up a wall, pouring out into the crowd, and causing widespread panic until the friendly folks at Armax hosed you down with crowd-control gas, don’t worry! We’ve finally gotten word from Cit Weekly’s own Shadow Broker that C-Sec’s E-Crimes division is blaming it on mass effect fields.

“How many of these have we had? Wait, are you gonna finish that pie?” E-Crimes expert Jordan Noles reportedly let slip to our own inside source. “Oh, the thing with the vorcha? Um, mass effect fields. Yeah, I know, right? You’d figure that since those things were holographic, they’d disappear as soon as they left the arena itself, or even as soon as the wall got damaged by a grenade, and seriously, if you are not going to eat that pie, you just pass that right on over, don’t just move it around with your fork. Anyway, yeah, mass effect fields.”

Now those of you who went to school might be MASS-ively skeptical about those fields having such a crazy EFFECT, but according to Noles, it’s absolutely possible! “Um, yeah! Probably. Those things can do anything. Probably how a holographic grenade broke the wall, too. I mean, we found a couple of decoy emitters — those little things you can use to fire off a hologram of yourself so that people shoot at it instead of you. But wits said that at least one of the vorcha left claw marks in the seat and apologized after it knocked somebody over, and decoys don’t usually do that. Thanks for the pie.”

I guess application of an electrical current to Element Zero can really have some a-MASS-ing results!

Also, a big Citadel Weekly hug goes out to local hero, Alliance Specialist Richards, who had a MASS-ive reaction to the riot-control spray and is EFFECT-ively off duty for a few days. We wish Richards the best!

  • Geth Infiltrator1025: @TalktotheTalons If you are referring to this unit, yes. The only remaining evidence of our hacking attempt is the interface port we dropped
  • De-MEL-Isher: @ThisUnit1025 You dropped an interface port? Is that like just having a toe fall off or something? #Citadel
  • De-MEL-Isher: @ThisUnit1025 Hey, don't do that thing with your flashlight head, it's a fair question and I'm really drunk. #Citadel
  • Geth Infiltrator1025: @De_Mel_isher This unit observed your former squadmate, operative Richards, picking it up when Casino Security apprehended him. #Citadel
  • De-MEL-Isher: @ThisUnit1025 Enh, he was kind of a tool. Always stole the grenades from my pylon. #Citadel
  • De-MEL-Isher: @ThisUnit1025 Said he needed them because his missiles didn't fire fast enough. No trouble firing fast enough that one time, I'll tell you.
  • Amda Talons Flufyria: Anyway, @De_Mel_isher , we did you a favor. Thax was a creep. Saying the turian cabals didn't have what it took for front-line combat.
  • De-MEL-Isher: @TalktotheTalons Oh, yeah, that would absolutely have stopped me from having mind-blowing sex with him. #Citadel
  • Amda Talons Flufyria: Wow, this combat arena is HUGE. And it's free to the public tonight! I could get in there and show EVERYONE what a cabal vanguard can do!
  • Snarfles: @TalktotheTalons AND GET PRIZE MONEY FOR ASARI GIRLFRIEND ME HAVE! #Citadel
  • Amda Talons Flufyria: @VorchaDaddy …Also that, sure. Okay, wish me luck. And also, if you see Thax, we should probably run. I might have biotically poisoned him.
  • De-MEL-Isher: @TalktotheTalons How the crap did you poison him? #Citadel
  • Amda Talons Flufyria: @De_Mel_isher BIOTICALLY. I just SAID that. How drunk are you? #Citadel

  • Snarfles: @De_Mel_isher WAIT. WHAT IF SHE LOSE? ME NO GET CREDITS BEFORE! #Citadel
  • De-MEL-Isher: @VorchaDaddy I'm sorry, little snarfly guy. Life is like that. There are no guarantees. We all just have to try our best. #Citadel
  • Snarfles: @De_Mel_isher WHAT IF WE HACK COMBAT SIMULATOR? #Citadel
  • De-MEL-Isher: @VorchaDaddy Hell yes, GOOD plan. 1024, you game? #Citadel
  • Geth Infiltrator1025: @De_Mel_isher This unit is very rarely thanked for disabling devices or applying medi-gel to downed comrades. #Citadel
  • De-MEL-Isher: @ThisUnit1025 Oh, come on, don't be pissy. Look, how else is Snarfles ever going to get his imaginary girlfriend to have sex with him?
  • Snarfles: @De_Mel_isher RAAAAAA, THAT OFFENSIVE ON SEVERAL LEVELS! #Citadel
  • Geth Infiltrator1025: @De_Mel_isher Acceptable. We will hack the combat simulator to allow Talons to win. #Citadel
  • Snarfles: @ThisUnit1025 GOOD! OVER HERE! NOBODY SEE! #Citadel
  • ANN: With inventive problem-solving skills, this N7 squad always puts the team ahead of personal concerns. #Citadel
  • De-MEL-Isher: And here we go! Wow, look at her down there. I guess she DOES poison stuff biotically! Mass effect fields can do ANYTHING! #Citadel
  • Geth Infiltrator1025: We are prepared to hack holographic enemy behavior protocols. What enemy set is she engaging? #Citadel
  • De-MEL-Isher: @ThisUnit1025 Oh, geth. Should be easy for you, huh? #Citadel
  • Geth Infiltrator1025: @De_Mel_isher Clarify. #Citadel
  • Snarfles: @ThisUnit1025 REAPER-CONTROLLED GETH. BAD GETH. NOT GOOD GETH. #Citadel
  • De-MEL-Isher: @VorchaDaddy Well, I don't know about that. I mean, admittedly, I'm pretty hammered, and I wasn't listening to the announcer, but… #Citadel
  • Geth Infiltrator1025: @De_Mel_isher This is offensive. Our people are now fighting alongside yours. We should not be depicted as enemies. #Citadel
  • De-MEL-Isher: @ThisUnit1025 Why not? It's like us killing those Cerberus jerkwads! Plus you helped us fight ACTUAL geth just yesterday! #Citadel
  • Geth Infiltrator1025: @De_Mel_isher Those are geth platforms being controlled by Reaper code, not geth programs. Do you not read the N7 newsletter? @Citadel
  • De-MEL-Isher: @ThisUnit1025 We have a newsletter? #Citadel
  • Geth Infiltrator1025: @De_Mel_isher We will not allow our people to be symbolically killed. Altering program. #Citadel
  • Snarfles: @ThisUnit1025 WHAT YOU DO? THAT NOT VOICE YOU USE WHEN DO SOMETHING GOOD. #Citadel
  • De-MEL-Isher: Holy crap, he turned all the geth into primes. This calls for another drink. #Citadel
  • Geth Infiltrator1025:@De_Mel_isher This unit is nongendered and requests that you monitor your privilege. #Citadel
  • De-MEL-Isher: Man, she does move her little turian ass around that arena pretty fast, I'll give her that! Run, girlfriend! #Citadel
  • Snarfles: RAAAAAA! YOU TURN OFF PRIMES! #Citadel
  • De-MEL-Isher: Is that Thax? Hey, I think Thax just busted in through the entry door. Wow, he looks PISSED. #Citadel
  • Snarfles: ME GO HELP! #Citadel
  • Geth Infiltrator1025: Alert: Combat arena schematics suggest that an electrical barrier surrounds the field of play. #Citadel
  • De-MEL-Isher: @ThisUnit1025 Yyyyyyyep, sure does. It's okay, he's a vorcha. He'll be fine once he's no longer on fire. #Citadel
  • Geth Infiltrator1025: @De_Mel_isher Casino security has sent an alert message to the staff of Armax Arena to arrest suspects matching your descriptions.
  • De-MEL-Isher: @ThisUnit1025 What the hell did I do? Probably good if we left. Thax really seems to want to kill Talons. Can you turn off the primes?
  • Geth Infiltrator1025: @De_Mel_isher Negative. However, we can modify them to provide her with a diversion. #Citadel
  • De-MEL-Isher: @ThisUnit1025 What are you gonna -- hunh. Turned 'em all into vorcha? Nice! #Citadel
  • De-MEL-Isher: Hey, and I bet a nice grenade blast would knock out the wall and give Snarfles and Talons a way out! #Citadel
  • Geth Infiltrator1025: @De_Mel_isher That is unlikely. A holographic grenade from the combat simulator will not damage the walls. #Citadel
  • De-MEL-Isher: @ThisUnit1025 Who said anything about holograms? Fire in the hole! #Citadel

Silversun Strip Edit

LOVABLE VARREN GOES FROM HOME TO HOME, CHANGING LIVES


Citadel Weekly, Lifestyle

He has lived on Tuchanka, on Illium, and on the Citadel. He has battled in pit fights, assisted as a therapy animal for drell children with early-stage Kepral’s Sydrome [sic], and was even, for a brief period of time, co-chair of Elkoss Combine. His current show-breed name is Prince Grimrender of Gembat, and in an investigative report, we explore the lives this lovable varren has touched–and changed.

Grimrender’s first appearance among humans was on the colony world of Feros, where he was one of the few friendly varren, according to reports. “We were going through a dark patch after the geth attacked,” colonist Davin Reynolds notes, “and a lot of us were feeling disconnected, like we didn’t know how to talk to each other anymore. We weren’t even sure this colony was going to survive. We were hunting for food, and I ran into this varren. I was sure it was going to attack me, but it just nuzzled my hand and led me to this dead alpha varren I hadn’t managed to find earlier–can’t imagine who killed it. Right then, I knew this colony was going to make it.”

Grimrender later spent time on Tuchanka, where a merchant who goes by "Ratch" remembers him fondly: “I’d lost most of my money in a deal on some bad Graal Spike Throwers, was about to lose my shop, and then this one varren growled at me… and I just knew it was telling me to bet on it in the next fight.” Grimrender reportedly won the match, and became a friendly fixture on Tuchanka for some time. Even after his retirement, Ratch reported that Grimrender helped protect his store, warning him of pyjak attacks so that Ratch could get help to drive off the aggressive scavengers. Grimrender also raised morale among visitors, nibbling pyjak meat and following tourists around the camp.

His exploits after Tuchanka are legendary. Grimrender reportedly protected a survivor from a crashed quarian ship by fending off attacking varren until help arrived, taught a greedy volus merchant the importance of caring for his friends, and helped provide a little inspiration for a salarian scientist who was having trouble cloning dinosaur mounts for krogan to use on planets with hostile atmospheres.

Most recently, Grimrender has touched the life of notorious businessman Thax Vorak, who won contests with Grimrender as a show-varren. Thax confides that the varren gave him a new outlook, and maybe even a new line of work. “After my evening was interfered with, my yacht stolen and crashed, and my health compromised, I was prepared to take significant steps against those involved. However, when I saw little Grimrender dragging that hapless human — Richards, I believe — through the pond, paddling with those little legs… I realized that there were things more important than vengeance. I’ve decided not to order anything done to the turian, the vorcha, even the attractive young human female. And I confess, that’s a big step for me.”

Although he is now retired from shows, Prince Grimrender of Gembat, who has gone by many names over the years, should still find a way to stay busy. At last reports, the varren has been put to stud to at McSorley’s Cloaca Margarine, a varren dairy that is currently in danger of going out of business…unless a particularly virile varren can help change lives there, too.

  • Amda Talons Flufyria: @De_Mel_isher Well, if you hadn't brought a KROGAN CRIMELORD around as your date, maybe I wouldn't have had to poison his driver to escape!
  • De-MEL-Isher: @TalktotheTalons Wait, you poisoned that guy on the floor? That's not his driver. That's Richards. #Citadel
  • Amda Talons Flufyria: @De_Mel_isher Oh, really? So it is. Well, he was near the sky-barge. I assumed he was a guard. #Citadel

  • De-MEL-Isher: It'd be great if he had some food, because three shots of ryncol on an empty stomach is a lot even for me. #Citadel
  • Amda Talons Flufyria: @ThisUnit1025 1025? Altitude. You can operate a manual-shift skycar, right? #Citadel
  • Geth Infiltrator1025: Compensating. #Citadel
  • Snarfles: RAAAA, WE CRASH! ME NEED TO TELL YOU SOMETHING! #Citadel

  • Amda Talons Flufyria: Everybody okay? @De_Mel_isher, I can't believe you're still walking, much less swimming across a damn lake. #Citadel
  • De-MEL-Isher: @TalktotheTalons Don't be insulting. Wait... It's a YACHT. Aren't they supposed to float? #Citadel
  • Amda Talons Flufyria: @De_Mel_isher I think he was maybe exaggerating a little about the yacht. #Citadel

  • De-MEL-Isher: @VorchaDaddy He's waterproof, right? They couldn't have kicked the quarians off Rannoch if you could break them by throwing water on 'em.
  • Amda Talons Flufyria: All right, everybody climb up onto shore. So, Snarfles, why'd you lie about having an asari girlfriend? #Citadel
  • Snarfles: @TalktotheTalons ME WANTED TO IMPRESS YOU. #Citadel
  • De-MEL-Isher: @VorchaDaddy With your ability to tell lies that nobody believed? Hey, unrelatedly, is ryncol bad for humans? #Citadel
  • Amda Talons Flufyria: @VorchaDaddy WHY did you want to impress us? #Citadel
  • Snarfles: @TalktotheTalons NOT ALL. YOU. ME NO HAVE GREAT BIOTICS OR CABAL SKILLS. BUT ME THINK IF ME HAVE CREDITS AND GIRLFRIEND, YOU THINK ME GOOD.
  • Snarfles: @TalktotheTalons BUT ALONG WAY, ME REALIZED IT NOT IMAGINARY GIRLFRIEND ME WANTED. IT REAL GIRLFRIEND. WHO FIGHT WELL AND POISON PEOPLE.

  • De-MEL-Isher: @TalktotheTalons No, no, literally, I'm pretty sure ryncol is actually poisonous for people. I mean human people. YOU KNOW WHAT I MEAN.
  • Geth Infiltrator1025: @De_Mel_isher We can administer poison-control measures if necessary. #Citadel
  • De-MEL-Isher: @ThisUnit1025 Gah! Where the crap did you come from? #Citadel
