The year is 2183 and the world is the purview of the MegaCorporations; eight monolithic world-spanning companies hellbent on winning whatever there is to be won. The battlefields are everywhere and for everything. Business is war.
On this day in the fall of 2183, the eight are set to become seven. The US-centric OmniTech and the Japanese BioDyne are about make history and become OmniDyne. And yet, one of the most powerful men in OmniTech, and strong opponent to the merger, has vanished; Harrison Webb has disappeared.
Did he walk away from his security or was he kidnapped? Is he lying in a ditch waiting to be found or in the bed of a 10k credit a night call girl? Not a supporter of the merger, could this be an eleventh hour attempt to scuttle the deal?
A soldier from OmniTech and an agent from BioDyne are tasked with finding him and, one way or another, bringing him home.
