Shadowrun News Reports - November 7 to November 13

This is a listing of news blurbs that happen between the last run and the next one.  The next run starts November 13 (in-game), so the final news item is a little early, but it will come out during play and I don't want to list it in the actual session report.

Astute readers will notice that AIPE appears in a previous post.

(Seattle Metroplex) Alvarez Integrated Power Equipment (AIPE) announced today a new line of micronized power cells, the Energin line of products.  Providing twice the power over the same lifespan, the new line will provide greatly expanded possibilities for cybernetics and many types of portable electronics.  Pricing on these new power cells is “commensurate with their expanded capabilities”.  No word on how this will affect manufacturers who use AIPE power cells.

(Seattle Metroplex) Alvarez Integrated Power Equipment (AIPE) announced today the pricing schema for the Energin line of micronized power cells.  The pricing is slightly higher than their previous line and rumor has it that they have also eliminated their discount system for cyberware manufacturers.  AIPE stock values increased significantly after the announcement.

(Seattle Metroplex) gang violence flared up overnight in the Everett District.  The Knight Errant Gang Taskforce reports that members of a Vietnamese gang known as the 19 Hatchets were targeted by an unknown group and many of the gang members were killed, including their leader, known as Buddy Mak.  Many, including Buddy Mak, were killed at a “party house” the gang maintained at 1905 Hoyt Avenue.  “Someone was surely angry at the 19 Hatchets,” a member of Knight Errant said, speaking anonymously as they were not authorized to comment on the case.
