Updated WHAT TO DO in the main post and DRAMATIS PERSONAE.

---
Rein
Beautiful silken black hair contrasts with vacant, empty eye-sockets.
Rein is a ghost.

I sigh, thinking of what she once was, and what she is now. She transgressed against a reprocessor who would have forced his way against her and who clawed at her eyes and tore and removed, but soon thereafter, he himself was killed. His fellows filed a report, then had her extracted.

Now she floats and thirsts for revenge. Pity though that she is insane with anger and with pain. She tries to pass for human, and often succeeds if her face can be covered. Otherwise, body is perfectly preserved and she tries not to float. She lures reprocessors, ideageons, and wonder workers into back alleys on windy days. Then she reveals herself and kisses them- none willingly take her kiss and they grow weak. She falls unconscious at the exertion, and then blows away on a gust of wind- not to be found.

Often, after Rein floats away, animals in the vicinity drawn near and begin to bite and gnaw and attack her victim, who, weakened by the ghost, can hardly protect himself.

Dozens of Prometheus' people have been lost to Rein's machinations.


The Golden
I AM A MACHINE MAN WHO WILL STOP AT NOTHING TO UPHOLD THE RIGHT AND PROPER RULES AND LAWS OF MY FATHER, THE JUSTICATOR.

THE JUSTICE OF HE WHO ALWAYS CORRECTLY CALCULATES WILL BE HAD THROUGHOUT THE LAND.

I AM 170 CENTIMETERS TALL. I AM GOLDEN. I DO NOT KNOW HOW MANY KILOGRAMS I WEIGH. I CAN BENCH-PRESS OVER SEVEN MEDIUM-SIZED HUMAN BEINGS WITHOUT CAUSING SPARKS TO FLY FROM MY INTERNAL CIRCUITRY.

I CARRY AN AXE AND I STRIKE WITH ENERGY ARCS.

I HAVE GIVEN BIRTH TO MANY MACHINE CREATURES THROUGH MY METALLIC HOLINESS.

I HAVE DUG HOLES ACROSS THE LAND IN SEARCH OF THE JUSTICATOR.

I HAVE TRACKED ENERGY EMANATIONS FROM ACROSS THE LAND. I HAVE MANY PLACES LEFT TO CHECK. I ENLIST MANY TO HELP ME FIND THESE PLACES. THEY ARE REWARDED WITH ENERGY, AND MY HOLY PRESENCE.

I AM WANTED AND MARKED FOR DEATH BY prometheus.
HE IS FOOLISH.

Sid
Sid is an Ideageon.
He's quite prescient.
In fact, he knew it was a good idea to leave the immediate vicinity of Prometheus.
Though most people would have thought the same, so that wasn't remarkable.
It's usually not a good idea to steal woven ideas from your boss, but Sid did that.
What was remarkable was that Sid was prescient enough to realize he'd get away with his crime.

Why did he steal the woven ideas?
Sid saw an opportunity, and he took it.
Sid is always looking for an opportunity.

Right now though, he's living in an idea-paradise.
He's underground, literally.
But his little idea is of an island paradise.

And he brought a few friends with him, to keep him company, and keep him happy.
So he's content.
But he can't leave the place.
And he's curious.

Will his agent find you and ask you to do him a favor.
Maybe.
Or maybe you'll find him.
Still, even if you do succeed, he'll have known you were coming, and'll have something interesting prepared for you.

Sid is a black haired man with a long pointed nose. His eyes are slanted and his cheekbones are highly raised and perpetually rosy. Sid always smells of lemons. And he walks mechanically, like a toy soldier; he's embarassed about this, so he usually sits.

The computing conglomerate of Xerox-Google-IBM, in cooperation with Mitsubuishi International.

It is rumored that the system runs on Linux. (Whether it is Ubuntu or Red Hat, none have lived to tell.) Others argue the program is based on even more arcane programming languages.

(as above:)

Appeals were abolished after the XEROX-GOOGLEPLEX JUSTICATOR...

Adventure Idea

Ideageon (Molly), Ghost (Lisa), UnThrall (Cory)

Background
- The Cult of the JUSTICATOR is doing strange things to the UnThrall towns. People are becoming augmented with mechanical, moving parts and they are losing their freedom- turning into mindless thinking automatons, even moreso than the Machine Men and their allies who are turning them into these things.

- Prometheus and his people do not dare cross into the land of the Un-Thrall; and it just so happens that Cory has close ties to the tribe of Un-Thrall who are being assaulted. In fact, his whole family is part of the tribe. His sister is one of those who was augmented and who is slowly losing her individuality.

Goals
1) Can we restore the individuality of those who have lost it to their augmentations?
2) Can we hunt down and stop the Machine Men from doing this to other tribes.
3) Why are the Machine Men doing this, what do they hope to accomplish?
4) Can we remove the augmentations from those who still possess individuality? Or will that cause complications?
5) Confront the Human UnThrall members of the CULT OF THE JUSTICATOR.

To Solve
- Any way you can imagine.

1) Reprogramming can change the goals, but the augmented are doomed to be without their ideas (See Augmented Adventurer)
2) Adventure!
3) The machine men believe that by augmenting humanoids, they can bring about the return of the JUSTICATOR. If all organics have implementations within them, they will return to logical reasoning, and come to worship the JUSTICATOR and abandon their magical ideas and false hope in Prometheus.
4) Once parted from their augmentations, most people die unless the powers of ideas can save them. They lack ideas, and they lack the substance of mechanical augmentation. Without either, there is little support for life.
5) The UnThrall members will try to convert the players; perhaps with success, perhaps not.

New ADVENTURER-
 

The Augmented

The Augmented
Augmentation - Each of the Augmented has some strange metal implementation that "improves" their form. Some may have detachable, flying eyeballs that can transmit images. Others may have springs attached to their legs, allowing them to jump great distances.

Download -  An Augmented's memories may be downloaded and stored on a memory-core, then uploaded into another Augmented's body. This is called "Body-Snatching" and is highly frowned upon, because it destroys what little "being" that is left of the overwritten creature.

Soulless The augmented eat and reduce, but they do not reproduce, nor do they laugh or love. They are fully fixated on their programming, to rescue the JUSTICATOR. Perhaps they can be reprogrammed, but their reprogramming cannot allow for free will, only another goal.
