Description[edit | edit source]
Have a problem in your neighborhood? Big bad corporation dumping chemical waste? Gang messing up your day? Can’t deal with it on your own? Vannaugh and Meyer are there to help you.

Special rules:[edit | edit source]
Bail You Out[edit | edit source]
If the runners get caught on minor to moderate charges (most things not involving dead people) Matthew Vannaugh can pull some strings at court and KE to make the charges disappear. For a price.
In The Know[edit | edit source]
Matthew Vannaugh seems to be on a first name basis with a distressing amount of people in the Courthouse, City Hall, Knight Errant, and even Lone Star. He is more than happy to help the runners get some juicy gossip, contacts, or even in to these buildings. For a price.
Defamation Suit[edit | edit source]
Heat too high for you? Tabloids posting horrid things about you? For a price Vannaugh & Meyer can help you with your PR problems. Mr. Vannaugh can drop your Public Awareness or Notoriety for ¥5,000 per point (minimum ¥5,000).
I Don’t Know Him, Officer[edit | edit source]
If the runners get freed through Bail You Out and then get caught again within two runs (or leave evidence during those runs) they will find Matthew is swift to drop them. Every time this happens decrease Vannaugh’s loyalty by one. Runners can get back in his good graces by doing some odd jobs (with reduced pay) for him.
