【R5】p.15-19 暗影中的机师 RIGGING IN SHADOWS
« 于: 2021-07-12, 周一 14:51:33 »
        提醒各位一件非常重要的事——机师什么都可以负责,甚至包括魔法!他们所能控制和指挥的的技术和系统的范畴如此之广,以至于他们可以一个人干完一支狂奔者小队的活。这简单吗?一般来说并不。他们是不是各个都会的像特动影片里的间谍那么多?大多数时候不是——但如果他们真的肯下功夫的话,他们也不是学不会那么多。但是,他们大多数都选择选中机师工作中的一个特定领域,并且在那一个领域做到极好。他们也会具有一些其他技能,而且一般来说对于所有机师能做的事也会有一个充分的了解,但这里是真实的暗影,不是什么过家家游戏或是特动影片。机师可以填补任何一支狂奔者队伍中的漏洞,或是作为任何人的替补。他们不只是交通工具,甚至有的时候压根就不是交通工具——让我们来看看你队伍里的机师都能干点什么。

Something that is very important to know—riggers can do it all, even magic! They have such a wide array of tech and systems to control and command it all, and they can act as a one-man runner team. Is it ever that easy? Not usually. Do they need the skillset of a trid-show spy? Probably. But they could if they put their mind to it. However, what they usually do is select a particular area of rigging and get really good at that. They’ll have some other skills and usually a decent understanding of everything a rigger could do, but these are the real shadows, not some made-up game or trid show. Riggers can fill in or back-up just about any spot on a runner team. They aren’t just the transport, and sometimes aren’t the transport at all, but let’s take a look at what having a rigger around is going to do for your team.
        在你为某趟活搜罗一个好机师的时候,最先想到的总是运输。但关键是,你得知道机师不全是司机:当你的机师开着辆爆改过的“斗牛犬”出现时,你的第一个念头可能是你们在里面能坐的多舒服,但现实很可能是里面是一个货仓,留出的空间只够修理堆得满满的无人机。如果你想让你的机师替你开车,那记得给你的车安上机师面板,这样他们才能最大限度的利用好它。

Transportation is the first thing that always comes to mind when vetting good riggers for a job. The key is remembering that riggers aren’t all wheelmen. When you see your rigger roll up to the meet in a tricked-out Bulldog, your first thought is probably about how chill it is that you can all stick together, but the reality is probably a cargo area with enough space to fix the drones that are racked and stacked. If you want your rigger to help with transport, get your ride adapted for them so they can make the best use of it.
        我已经能想象到对我上段话最后一句的回应了:“但我们花钱雇机师就是为了糟蹋他们的载具!反正他们自己会修!”别这么干。机师不全是机械师,而就算是那些是机械师的也不喜欢把赚到的所有新円都花在修补弹孔和抹平伤痕上。不要忘了,他们还可以修理你那辆没有装着那些和穿过的铅弹不怎么合得来的,昂贵无比的电子设备的车。
剧透 -   :
I can hear the response already from that last line. “But we hire the rigger so we can trash their vehicle because they can fix it!” Don’t be that runner. Riggers aren’t all mechanics, and even the ones that are don’t like spending all their spare nuyen patching bullet holes and painting over scorch marks and scratches. They can also do the same for your ride, too. And your car probably isn’t full of expensive electronics and gear that doesn’t respond well to ricocheting lead.
        一个受过对应训练的机师在运输方面可以极其优秀,但记住了,我说的是“受过训练”的。还有就是记得看看他们使用的是哪种型号的载具:机师可能会专精某类载具也可能什么都会一点,因此了解他们会开和不会开哪类载具至关重要:如果你想找一个擅长应对拥堵的城市街道的人物,记得确保他开的是辆美利车而不是维斯塔(Vista);如果你想要找个机师负责屋顶撤出,记得确认他开的是架“鱼鹰”而不是“女妖”;如果你的小队需要有个人把你们从翡翠之城(译者注:指西雅图)送去虫之城(译者注:指芝加哥),记得确认他开的是辆“卑尔根”重型货车而不是道奇·氙气。只要有正确的装备,对于一个好机师来说运输算得上是最简单的一类工作。

Riggers trained in this area are great to have around for transportation, but remember, I said “trained,” and remember to check what modes of transportation they operate. Riggers can specialize or be a jack of all trades, and it’s important to know what they operate and what they don’t. If you’re looking for someone good at handling tight urban streets, make sure they drive an Americar, not a Vista. If you happen to be looking for a rigger to do a rooftop extract, make sure they’ve got an Osprey and not a Banshee. If your team needs a ride from the Emerald City to Bug City, make sure they’re using a Bergen and not a Xenon. Transport is one of the easiest jobs for a good rigger if they have the right equipment.
        机师不是“一款供全家”的那类人——他们的种类数量和特化程度就和你跑步用的肌肉差不多。所有机师唯一的共同点就是他们都有个中控器。和所有其他事情一样,你得知道你在和谁说话以及你想找的究竟是什么,才能在正确的时间坐上正确的那辆车。为此,让我们了解一下机师还能在一支小队中扮演什么角色。

Riggers aren’t a one-size-fits-all group of guys and gals. They’re as varied and specialized as the muscle you’re running with. The only thing every rigger has in common is that control rig. Like everything else, you have to know who you’re talking to and what you’re looking for to get the right ride at the right time. Let’s move on and look at a few other roles the rigger can flesh out for a team.
         监视常常被与侦察混为一谈。后者我稍后会谈到,但首先,机师们拥有的设备尤其适合监视。别误会,他们也很擅长侦察,但我说了那个我们之后再讲。
剧透 -   :
Surveillance is often confused with reconnaissance. I cover the second one later, but riggers are especially well equipped to perform surveillance. They’re good at reconnaissance, too, don’t get me wrong, but I’ll cover that later as I said.
         发现我刚刚干了什么吗?我通过反复强调一件事来让你去考虑那件事,从而创造出让你分神的可能。有些人可能就是这么甩掉尾巴,或是逼迫他暴露行踪的。但机师的“尾巴”不止一条。一个机师会同时控制好几条“尾巴”,这样当其中一个被一个急转弯甩掉的时候,另一个就可以跟着之前的痕迹继续追踪。一支常规的监视小队可能需要六七个人才能达到的效果,机师一个人就可以靠着切换跳入和轮换使用12架无人机实现。半打人试图相互配合对战一个人掌控全局。机师先取一分。
剧透 -   :
See what I did there? I repeated something just to get you to think about it, and possibly distract you. That’s how a mark throws off a tail or gets them to reveal themselves,
but a rigger isn’t limited to just one tail. A rigger will run several tails at once so that when one would be burned by a double-back, another can pick up the trail. A regular surveillance team could consist of half a dozen people trying to work in coordination to pull that off, while one rigger can have a dozen drones that he’s jumping between and keeping on a rotation. Half a dozen people trying to coordinate, or one person running the whole show. Advantage rigger.
         一个机师可以极大的增加一支小队在监视方面的可用选项。在都市中,很少有一架型号正确的无人机或载具无法融入的环境。使用广泛散布的一系列无人机,就是一位机师相对传统监视者所具有的最大优势。无人机部署起来十分容易:放置在屋顶上,顺着无人机的“车流”飞行,在广告之间浮动,或是升到他人难以将其从天空的底色中辨别出来的高度。在野外,选项则有些不同:机师会选择将无人机隐藏起来而不是融入环境——或是用另外一种方法融入环境。在城市之外,他们可以使用小型无人机来进行隐藏或伪装。不论是用传统的分型伪装还是更加先进的钌镀层或是变色涂层,他们几乎可以藏在任何地方。

         对于机师而言,野外监视带来的最为常见的一个变化就是距离:利用先进的光学目镜和麦克风,无人机可以在一公里之外听见和看见目标身上发生的一切。拥有足够的距离,再加上正确的涂装,机师可以说万无一失。传统方法也能达成类似的效果,但和前文一样需要大量的人手和甚至更长距离上的协作——机师再得一分。

A rigger brings a wide range of surveillance options to a runner team. In urban environments, there are very few places that a drone or a vehicle won’t blend in with the background, given it is the right kind. Using a series of them, spread all around, is the advantage a rigger has over traditional surveillance. Drones are easy to deploy, leave stationed on a rooftop, flow within the dronestream, float among the other advertisements, or sit so high up they are indistinguishable from the sky. In rural areas, the options are different. Riggers will trade the usual, one among many, method of blending in for being unseen or blending in in a different way. Out here they can use smaller drones to stay hidden or disguised within nature. They can use camouflage in the form of traditional shape-breaking methods or more advanced ruthenium polymer or ElectroPaint options to hide almost anywhere. The most common change a rigger will make with rural surveillance is distance. With advanced optics and microphones, their drones can be a kilometer away and still
see and hear everything going on with a target. Distance combined with the right paint job and the rigger is golden. Traditional methods can do similar things, but again require large amounts of personnel coordination over even longer distances. Once again, advantage rigger.
         机师不只能够承担起监视的责任,而且他们往往比传统方法更加优越。的确,骇客们也能通过偷取监控录像和从原主手里夺取无人机达成类似的效果,但骇客们不得不面对GOD这个麻烦。机师们不需要会引起权威注意的代码也能工作。并不是说从来没有哪个机师被GOD从矩阵里踢出来过——这种事是有的——但比起被踢的骇客来要少的多得多。
剧透 -   :
Not only can riggers take on the role of surveillance, but they tend to be the superior option to traditional methods. Now, hackers can work a lot of similar areas by snagging camera feeds or taking over drones from their standard users, but hackers have the issue of GOD. A rigger operates without the coding designed to draw the attention of authorities. Not that GOD has never blasted a rigger out of the Matrix—it has happened—but at nowhere near the frequency of hackers getting the boot
and scoop.
         下一项,战斗。比起焦虑、反社会而且改造过度的街头武士,或是谨小慎微而且磕多了“禅”的修士,为什么不用一支无人机大军呢?这些无人机不发脾气,不闹情绪,会服从命令和执行计划而且——最妙的是——也不会老是想着要开火。机师可以轻松的用不具备那些被称为“人类感情”的化学物质的无人机代替队里的战斗力;这些无人机也许不能解决一些需要思考的问题,但他们可以在队伍或是机师做好决定之后接受命令去很快的执行这些决定。
剧透 -   :
Next up, combat rigging. Who needs an angsty, anti-social, over-cybered street samurai, or prissy, hyper-zen adept when you can have an army of drones with no anger issues, the ability to follow orders and execute a plan, no drama, and best of all, no itchy trigger fingers. Riggers can easily replace the muscle on a runner team with drones that lack the chemical miasma that is the human psyche. They may not be able to solve some problems that require lateral thinking, but they can quickly be commanded to execute whatever solution
the rest of the team or the rigger decides on.
         通过使用形状、尺寸和战斗能力不同的各类无人机,机师可以为小队提供比平常广泛的多的各种选项:装备着毒气、飞镖、电击器或是化学注射器的一个或是一群微型无人机可以起到和一位用尽一生保持隐秘以至于一个愿意相信他的人都没有的前企业特工相同的作用。小型无人机也能扮演相同的角色,但有着更强一些的力量和灵活性。更大的无人机往往更加专注于某一项功能,但机师们会对其进行一系列不太影响外形的改造,从而为其加入很多对有些工作来说十分有用的功能。这些无人机往往可以伪装成某栋建筑的服务无人机或是助理无人机,然后在成功潜入之后再发挥出它们的隐藏天赋——当机师直接控制时,这些天赋的效果可以十分惊人。
剧透 -   :
With drones of all shapes, sizes, and combat potential, riggers also have the potential of bringing a much wider range of options to the solutions table. A microdrone, or even a small swarm of them, with small gas payloads, a dart, electrical discharge, or chemical syringe stinger can go in quiet to take out guards just like that former corporate operative who no one trusts because he lives a life of secrecy. Minidrones pack a little more punch or versatility in the same role. Larger drones often become more specialized, but riggers do a lot of customizations that blend into the original design but add features that are useful to the specific job. These can often be snuck in as service drones for a building or personal assistants, and then they deploy their hidden talents once inside the facility. These talents can be quite exceptional when they are directly inhabited by the rigger.
         机师能为小队带来的最为显而易见的一项优势就是在正面冲突中的人数。尽管我们被称为“暗影”狂奔者——一个暗示了某种程度的隐秘性的名字——但某些人眼里唯一的解决方案就是显而易见且光明正大的暴力。此时的机师就好比军队中的火力支援:他们可以指令数架无人机分别负责从火力压制到狙击特定目标的各种任务;他们可以给它们装备上能够应付各种意外情况的多种武器弹药;而只要机师一声令下,它们就会执行包括停火、变更目标、移动、火力复盖新区域、直接冲锋甚至自爆在内的任何命令,而不会产生任何情绪、争论、延迟或是犹豫。
剧透 -   :
The most obvious advantage the rigger brings in terms of being the team’s combat support is numbers in a direct assault. While we are called shadowrunners, insinuating some level of stealth in our activities, open and obvious violence is often the only solution some people see. Here riggers are like military fire support. They can bring in several drones with commands for suppression or specific targeting. They can arm them with a range of weapons and ammunitions to cover several contingency plans. They can be commanded to stop firing, switch targets, move, cover a new area, charge straight in, and even self-destruct without any argument, attitude, delay, or hesitation, all with a single thought from the rigger.
         在战斗力层面上,机师在狂奔者小队中最大的优点在于毫不后悔的进行牺牲的能力。是的,有些机师会对自己的无人机产生感情,以至于拒绝操纵它们执行自杀任务,但大多数机师能够理解无人机与泛人的生命不同,是可以轻易替代的消耗品。以机师作为战斗支援的队伍很少会体验到那种与殿后的队友眼泪汪汪的进行告别的时刻,因为机师总是会高高兴兴的驾驶着他的人造躯壳晃进风暴之中死守;而即使他们“死”了,那也只不过是一次不算舒适但很少致命的甩出休克而已——他们随后可以立刻再度回到行动之中。我不得不说,机师又得一分。
剧透 -   :
The single greatest thing a rigger brings to any runner team in terms of combat prowess is the ability to sacrifice without regret. Yes, there are some riggers out there who grow very attached to their drones and would never let anyone send them in on a suicide mission, but most riggers understand that drones are expendable assets that can easily be replaced, unlike metahuman lives. The team that uses the rigger as their combat support will rarely know that moment of saying tearful goodbyes to the one member who needs to stay back and hold off the oncoming wave while the rest of the team escapes, because the rigger will happily wade into the maelstrom in his synthetic shell to hold off the opposition. Even if they “die,” it’s an unpleasant, but rarely fatal, case of dumpshock and they’re back in action. Again, I have to say, advantage rigger.
         尽管前文早就提到了,但我还是决定把侦察放到这里,因为我想按照机师相对其他队友擅长的程度对这些职能进行说明。当进行侦察时,机师十分有用:通过大量拥有各种不同传感器的无人机,他们可以了解到目标人物或地点的每一点信息。我之所以把它放的这么靠后是因为,我得承认,只要有无人机上的传感器和设备,其他人也可以很轻松的完成这项任务。而鉴于侦察通常会涉及到到达某处然后进行观测或录音,无人机和泛人在这一点上各有所长。
剧透 -   :
I moved reconnaissance down here, though it was mentioned above, because I’m trying to progress down the order of what riggers tend to be best at handling versus other team members. When it comes to reconnaissance, riggers are great. They have a range of drones
with an abundance of sensor systems that can get every drop of intel on a target person or site. I move it down here because, I’ll admit, this is often just as easily done by others with similar sensors and equipment as you’d find on the drone. And since most reconnaissance requires getting somewhere and then watching or recording, drones and metahumans both have their strengths and weaknesses.
         在使用飞行器或是飞行无人机进行隐蔽的航拍上,机师是完美的。他们能够记录下他们收到的信息,并即时传回或是在完活之后把它们带回来。长距离传感器系统让这一点变得更加简单,但对方也同样可以使用这些系统。无人机提供了一个收集对方发现无人机并将其破坏或躲藏起来之前的全部信息并将其回传的选项:失去一架无人机比失去一架飞行器里的一条命要强得多。
剧透 -   :
Riggers are perfect for stealthy flybys with an aircraft or drone. They can record the data they take in and either feed it back instantly or bring it back after they’re done. Long-range sensor systems make this easier, but those same systems can be employed by the opposition. Drones offer a way to feed the data back right up to the point that the target notices and hides or destroys the drone. Loss of a drone is better than loss of a life inside an aircraft.
         在地面上,机师可以将无人机送到某个地方并持续观察,但无人机总会受到电量的限制:人可能会感到冷、不适或是不快,但他们可以靠着带上一些东西来轻易的回复自己的能量;是的,他们可能会困,但是藏起来睡一觉相比回来充电或是加油来说要强得多。这一点在长时间侦查中尤为明显,因为发现一件有违和感的东西足以让任何侦查任务功亏一篑——尤其是看到了不止一次的时候。
剧透 -   :
On the ground, a rigger can get a drone into place and watch, but they are limited to the power life of the drone. People may get cold, uncomfortable, or cranky, but they can bring something along to easily replenish their energy in the field. Yes, they may have to sleep, but hiding and sleeping is a better option than needing to travel back and recharge or refuel, especially when it comes to long-term reconnaissance, because spotting something that is out of place is all it takes to blow the recon—especially if the thing is seen more than once.
         当需要进入某个设施进行侦察时,无人机不是总能替代活人,但它们能够提供一个失败代价相对较低的选项。如果有人在错误的时间出现在了错误的地点,那就意味着侦察失败,而那个人需要想法逃出来。如果无人机在错误的时间出现在了错误的地点,侦察还是失败了,但无人机是可以放弃的。是的,活人可以通过招摇撞骗逃出来,但是这也正是这一条位置这么靠后的原因所在:这是一项机师可以负责的职能,但考虑到需要机师负责的工作数量和报酬的分配,让机师负责侦察并不是最佳选项。
剧透 -   :
When it comes to going into a facility for reconnaissance, drones cannot always replace people, but they always offer the less costly option for failure. If a person is caught in the wrong place at the wrong time, the recon is blown and the person needs to get out. If a drone falls into the same situation, the recon is still blown, but the drone can be abandoned. Yes, people can talk their way out, but that’s why this is down here. It’s a job a rigger can cover for the team, but it isn’t the best option when considering which area of the team to leave in the hands of the rigger and which part you’re going to need to split the payday on.
         和侦察类似,潜入某个设施去夺取某个人或某件物件也可以由拥有对的工具的机师负责。再强调一遍,选择拥有对的工具的对的机师是十分重要的——错的机师和错的工具意味着他干不了这活。
剧透 -   :
Much like reconnaissance, infiltrating a site to get someone or something can be handled by a rigger with the right tools. That’s important to mention again, that it’s all about the right rigger with the right tools. The wrong rigger or the wrong tools means they aren’t going to cover the gap.
 
         潜入偷取数据对于机师来说是最简单的。他们可以用一架小型或微型无人机去到小队需要的任何地方,并为骇客们提供他们所需要的接口。使用更大号的无人机时,模仿设施内的无人机也可以把问题简化为将无人机送到有正确的接口的正确地点。门和其他障碍物对于无人机来说常常是个麻烦,但体型较小的无人机可以藏在进入建筑物内的人身上或者行李箱里。这个选项往往涉及到在员工身上安置无人机,或是队伍中的潜入专家与机师的协作:潜入专家负责潜入,而无人机则用于确保接入不会引起注意。
剧透 -   :
Infiltrating for a data steal is the best option for a rigger. They can take in a micro or minidrone that can get wherever the team needs and get access for the hacker to do their part. Move up to larger drones to impersonate (or would it be imdroneate?) a drone on site, and it’s again just a matter of getting the drone to the right place for the right access. Doors and other passage barriers are often an issue for a drone, but small drones can hide on the person or within the briefcase of someone going into the building. Options like this could involve planting the drone on an employee or the cooperation of the team’s infiltration specialist and the rigger to get in and use the drone to keep the access inconspicuous.
         潜入夺取某件有实体的东西则要难上很多。如果能想出一个把无人机送入撤出的方案的话,模仿设施内无人机的方法可能会有效。由潜入专家负责取得物品,而后由机师负责操纵无人机将其带离现场的混合计划也是可行的:理想情况下他们可以利用诸如窗户或是屋顶这类快速的非常规出口让无人机撤出,从而确保肉做的那位搭档不用带着目标物走出大门。擅长使用人形无人机——尤其是那些更轻更隐蔽的型号——的机师需要单独考虑:这些无人机可以和泛人类一样进行潜行,而且被抓也不会丢掉性命。但这些无人机的价格仍然是个问题,而需要机师拥有潜入用的技能或是需要一位潜入专家进行指导也使得这一选项更加罕见且昂贵。这也是为什么潜入排在这么靠后的位置——这属于机师完全没有优势的职责之一。
剧透 -   :
Infiltrating in order to grab something physical is tougher. The imposter drone method above might work if some method of getting the drone in and out can be developed. A mixed method with rigger and infiltration specialist to get the item and then plant it in a drone to head out, especially in the case of a rapid, non-standard exit, like out a window or quickly from a rooftop is ideal to keep the meat partner from walking out with the package. Special consideration should be given to a rigger skilled with anthroform drones, especially some of the lighter and stealthier models, that can be used to sneak around just like a metahuman, but again cost no loss of life if they are caught. Expense of these drones is something to consider, and the need for the rigger to possess, or be guided by someone with, appropriate training in infiltration techniques makes it more rare and expensive. Which is another reason infiltration is so low in this list. This would be one of those no-advantage calls.
         机师不是骇客。他们可能会偶尔参与一点电波上的战争,但他们的主要装备,RCC,并不具备赛博碟板所具有的那些功能——那是碟板的职责。尽管如此,机师的确可以负责起骇客所负责的工作中的几个方面,也可以在付出一些代价之后,有效的阻挠敌方骇客的一些努力。让我们来看两个例子以帮助你理解你队伍里的机师能够负责哪些工作,而哪些工作又必须要你掏出钱来雇个正经骇客。
剧透 -   :
Riggers are not hackers. They may occasionally partake in a little warfare on the airwaves, but their normal equipment, the RCC, is not configured to be a cyberdeck. That’s what cyberdecks are for. Of all things. That said, a rigger can manage to fill in a few of the aspects your hacker handles and can convincingly work to stymie the efforts of opposing hackers, though often at a cost. Let’s look at the two instances and try to help you develop an understanding of when your team’s rigger can cover a job and when you need to just cough up the cash for a real hacker.
 
         骇客往往需要破坏敌方的通讯,负责监控和确保己方的通讯畅通,获得和提供目标设施外或设施周边的视频或音频的调用权限,以及帮助接入和绕过电子锁与安保措施。以上四项的顺序并非随机:它们是按照机师可能擅长的程度进行排列的。
剧透 -   :
Hackers are often asked to obstruct the communications of the opposition, handle the monitoring and securing of the team’s communications, gain and provide access to video or audio feeds from nearby or inside a facility, and help in accessing and bypassing electronic locks and security measures. The order above is intentional. The four areas are in the order in which a rigger tends to best be able to cover in some capacity.
         干扰通讯是最简单的一项。由于当代通讯设备的特性和接入矩阵所需要的程序与带宽,要把一台通讯链变成一台干扰器是十分简单的——机师们为了降低他们周围其他机师和碟客的工作效率日常这么干。准备好改造,然后把噪声打到最大吧。这个动作会把机师和其他所有人一起干扰到,但好机师总会有办法应付——尤其是他们知道这波杂讯会来的时候。一般的干扰器在任何人手里都有效,但它一看就知道是个干扰器:一拿出来对面的枪手就会立刻为了给自己的碟客清理电波而把它当成目标。当搅乱电波的是一台人人都有的通讯链时,要认出它来就困难许多了。
剧透 -   :
The easiest is obstructing communications. Due to the nature of modern communications and the processing and bandwidth needs for accessing the Matrix, turning a commlink into a jammer is relatively easy. Riggers do it all the time in order to reduce the effectiveness of other riggers and hackers communicating in their vicinity. Have a burner handy and kick up the squelch. The move jams up the rigger along with everyone else, but the good ones have ways around that, especially if they know it’s coming. The standard jammer works in anyone’s hands, but it’s a jammer and becomes the instant target for opposing gun bunnies to clear the airwaves for their hacker. Harder to tell what’s muddling the airwaves when it’s a commlink just like everyone else has.
          确保队内通讯对于机师来说就有如第二天性:机师并不怎么喜欢自己的无人机被黑,因此他们在自己的RCC网络上都有一面不错的防火墙。而只要机师愿意用通讯链替代一部分PAN上的无人机,那么这面防火墙同样也可以保护队内的通讯。用通讯链代替无人机的确会导致可用选项的大大减少,但在危急时刻这么做也并无不可。机师们一般也同样具有用高级通讯链构筑一个还算安全的网络所需要的技术知识,只要队伍里有一个人不那么吝啬而且愿意充当骇客的靶子就行。值得一提的是,不愿意贡献出自己的通讯链这种现象现在正在变得越发普遍,因为搞到一个SIN越来越难,而越来越多的超企开始把SIN直接和通讯链硬件绑定了。
剧透 -   :
Securing the team’s communications can be like second nature to a rigger. Riggers are not huge fans of having their drones hacked and therefore tend to have a solid firewall on their RCC network to prevent it from happening. This same firewall can protect the team’s communications via their commlinks, if the rigger wants to slave those commlinks in place of some drones. The big potential downfall is the replacement of drones with commlinks, but in a pinch it’s something to do. Riggers also tend to have the technical know-how to make a pretty secure network with a decent commlink as well, as long as someone on the team didn’t skimp and is willing to be a bullseye for potential hackers. As a note, skimping on a ’link is getting a lot more common as SINs are getting harder to come by, and more and more megacorporations are having them hardwired onto commlinks.
          狂奔者队伍中的骇客最优先的任务之一就是提供情报,尤其是通过骇入本地的摄像头提供即时的视频和音频数据。机师没办法骇入摄像头;他们能做到的是让无人机骑在摄像头上同步摄录。他们没办法编辑录像,但他们至少能知道在指定地点发生了什么。当队伍里的机师和骇客合作时,这种骑乘行为在复制录像时可以十分便利:无人机可以接入摄像头的线路从而方便骇客进入。记住,狂奔者组队是有原因的。
剧透 -   :
A high priority for hackers on a runner team is providing intel, especially up to date visual and audio data by hacking into local camera feeds. Riggers can’t hack local feeds. What they can do is piggyback microdrones in places where there are cameras and match the feed. They can’t edit it, but at least they know what’s going on in a given location. This piggy-backing can also be quite handy if a rigger and hacker team up and while duplicating the video feed; in this instance, the drone also taps into the camera’s wiring for the hacker to get in. Remember, shadowrunners work in teams for a reason.
          最后一点是绕过电子锁。骇客往往可以挥一挥手就做到这点——至于矩阵里发生了什么那是另一回事,你明白意思就行了。而机师,至少他们中的大多数,则一般都对电子元件有一定了解。因此,他们可以利用这些知识去手动绕过电子锁,而不是通过矩阵。相比骇客的做法来讲这样既慢又麻烦,但这活上机师确实可以支援骇客——或者在有必要的时候,也可以自己来。
剧透 -   :
Last point is bypassing electronic locks. Hackers often do this with a simple wave of their hand. What goes on in the Matrix is a whole other ballgame, but you get the point. Riggers, most of them anyways, tend to have a decent understanding of electronics that they can use to take apart electronic locks and bypass them manually, rather than in the Matrix. It’s never as easy or quick as how hackers would do it, but it’s a place for riggers to back them up—or take the lead if necessary.
          该谈谈大家都等着站起身来大喊犯规的东西了:魔法!当然,我不是说机师可以召唤精魂或是施展法术,但他们那油乎乎的袖子里的确藏着一些察觉和反制魔法的法子——再说,有火焰喷射器、电击弹和榴弹,我觉得机师在战斗方面原本也不算落后。让我来具体说明一下我指的是什么。
剧透 -   :
Time for the one everyone’s been waiting to jump on and cry foul: Magic! Now I don’t mean a rigger can cast spells or summon spirits, but they’ve got some countering and detecting tricks up their greasy sleeves. Plus, with flamethrowers, lasers, Stick ‘n’ Shock rounds, and grenades, I don’t think they’re lagging behind in the combat options field anyway. But let’s get specific on what I’m talking about here.
          首先,让我们讨论一下机师对抗魔法的选项:最主要的一个就是单纯,老派的视线遮挡。机师可以用平平无奇的手法放出烟雾,弄脏窗户,遮挡视线,或是用光线将敌方施法者致盲,从而阻止或阻碍其施法。多亏了大多数超企的研究部门,现在也有很多不是那么平平无奇的对魔法手段。含有FAB(星界荧光细菌)的烟雾弹可以用于侦测施法(使用FAB I)或是阻碍星界移动(使用FAB II);而在奇术领域,机师们近年来发展出的最棒的一个小戏法就是AP炸弹,俗称土炸弹:AP代表的并非穿甲(Armor Piercing),而是星界粉尘(Astral Powder),一种会被魔法活跃的物品,包括人所吸引的物质。在你自己的奇术专家不在的时候,这是识别敌方的法术来源的终极方案;而一旦确定了法术来源——队伍里的其他人就可以开始考虑怎么应用 “先干法师”的原则了。

First, let’s discuss the countering options riggers provide against magic. The biggest of which is plain, old-fashioned line of sight. Riggers can deploy smoke, tint windows, cut off sight lines, and use lights to blind opposing spellcasters and prevent or hinder spellcasting, all through mundane means. Thanks to the great research & development departments at most of the major megacorporations, there are also a number of magic-inhibiting options that are not so mundane. Gas grenade loads that contain FAB (fluorescing astral bacteria)
can be used to detect spellcasting or hinder astral movement depending on whether the FAB-I or FAB-II strain is used. One of the best tricks riggers have developed lately to help out in the arcane arena is the AP grenade, usually called a dust bomb. AP doesn’t standfor armor piercing, but rather astral powder, a substance that is drawn to magically active items, including people. It’s the ultimate way to identify the opposition’s magical resources when you don’t have your own arcane specialist handy. Once those resources are identified, the rest of the team can decide how to apply the principles of “geek the mage first.”
          最后我们来说说机师,或者说他的无人机替代队伍的出面人的情况。这并不总是最好的选择,而且一部分约翰逊先生会认为这种行为很没品,但如果这么干能拿到更多钱而且队里的谈判员刚好没在的话,那你们只需要担心约翰逊先生同不同意就行了。首先,即使是最狂妄的机师也不会只送一个无人机进场:得有其他几个队友跟进去,最好是队里的打手——如果他是那种知道在谈判时应该闭嘴的打手的话。但不管跟进去的是谁,他的工作都是坐好,闭嘴,然后看着队伍里最擅长谈判的那个人透过无人机和约翰逊先生对话。

          这么做的好处有两个:首先,谈判者在透过无人机进行谈话时不会感觉到平时的那种个人压力。和巨魔——矩阵上的那种,不是大个子的那种泛人类——一样,这种距离感可以允许人说出平常绝对不会在他人面前说出来的话。第二个优点则是无人机没有鼻子或是其他能够摄入荷尔蒙的器官,因而能够免疫任何通过化学物质动摇泛人潜意识的殖装——其他队友可能会奇怪为什么谈判者对自己的新挚友这么混蛋,但只要企业的傀儡和谈判者的傀儡之间能够在任务开始之前达成协议,那么这些对约翰逊先生产生感情的队友就不是问题。Kane以前告诉我说他认识一个加勒比联盟那边的机师:他经常接单人任务,但每次都会雇一个当地的帮派成员或是寄居者去替他和委托人见面,而他则开着无人机旁听;他说到最后当地的约翰逊都告诉那个机师别再费这个劲了,但他还是坚持这么干——因为这样他既可以接济一下本地人,又能不显得像是在施舍他们。

Last in line here is a look at riggers taking over for the team’s face. Or at least, a drone taking over, if not the rigger. The move is not always the best option and sometimes considered in poor taste by Mr. Johnson, but if it gets the team more money when their negotiator is currently out of the picture, all that matters is that the Johnson goes with the deal. First off, even the cockiest rigger would never suggest sending in just a drone. Some other member of the team needs to go in, preferably the muscle (as long as they are the type
of muscle that knows not to talk during negotiations). Whoever goes in, it is their job to sit back, be quiet, and let the best talker left on the team communicate through the drone with Mr. Johnson. The benefits of this are twofold. The negotiator doesn’t feel the same personal pressure when talking through a drone. Much like “trolls”—the Matrix kind, not the big metahumans—that level of personal separation often frees one to say things they would never say to someone’s face. The second benefit is the lack of olfactory or any other form of hormone analyzing and processing systems, making implants designed to sway people via subconscious chemical cues completely ineffective. The team members in the room may start wondering why their negotiator is such a dick to their new best friend, but as long as the negotiation is defined at the beginning as between the corp drone and the real drone, those runners who catch feelings for Mr. Johnson shouldn’t be a problem. Kane once told me of a rigger he knows down in the Carib League who will run solo jobs but hires local gangers or squatters to go into the meet and stand with the drone. He said the move has become such a common occurrence that area Johnsons have told the rigger not to bother bringing in the local. Kane said the rigger sticks with it to help out locals without making it look like a handout.
          希望上文能帮助各位理解机师不只是你的司机。他们可以扮演这个角色,但如果你能找到对的机师的话,他们可以为队伍做出的贡献远不止当个司机。当然了,秘诀在于找到对的那个。

Hope that helps everyone understand that riggers aren’t just your wheelman. They may play that role, but if you find the right one they can be so much more beneficial to the team than just a driver. But the trick, of course, is finding the right one.
