Classified ad by a talismonger looking for a quite exotic component for a quite exotic focus enchantment. Aside from hard honest nuyen, other similarly exotic materials, future favours or services (such as weighing a runner’s karma) can be negotiated for as payment.
I am quite fond of breaking the largely transparent, understandable, predictable frame of Shadowrun’s magic by having the unexpected, hard – or not – explainable pop up suddenly (and not just at the climax of some run or world shattering quest or other). Also, today I noted for the first time that “gila monster” is an anagram of “talismonger”. Finally, in my head it’s her who posted the ad.
Both of these were ahead of me by quite a margin in getting the first Ad-Blog plus ads out there.
