The Dancing Drone!!1one
The Dancing Drone!!1one is a decently well-known store. Supplies for most any drone type can be found there, but if you want something combat grade you need to do more then just walk in off the street. It resides in a large building, holding down the corner store of a strip mall in Renton. With a solid middle class clientele to support it, @RC is able to keep the shelves well stocked and even has the nuyen to run an event or two every month. Usually these events are some form of drone-based combat. The basement has been carved out below the mall, providing an arena roughly the size of a soccer field. It is a wonder of modern engineering, able to be shaped and changed to most any environment, from a rain forest (albeit with metal trees) to an urban sprawl; the sky is almost the limit (a 25M height limit, that is). The second floor of the store is the gallery and control booth. Cameras of most every type festoon the arena allowing for a view of any angle from the second floor’s cushy lounge, with comfy chairs all over the place so that those who wish it can view the match from VR. @RC is quite proud of the fact that her store was featured in a Rockem! Sockem! article when she held the National Semifinals.
@RC knows that she has to be very careful, as any dealings she might have with ’runners has to be done quietly and with the utmost discretion. An audit of her finances would get her tossed in jail quickly, and fully half of her Shadow income goes to keeping the right people bought and silent. Her public bubbly exterior hides a ruthless woman when it comes to business; break your word with her and you are likely to find yourself getting stalked by a drone soon after. Whether or not that is an assassin drone depends on what kind of mood she is in and how much you pissed her off.
