我可以给出更多的建议,但不可能在我剩下的这一点点时间内把所有的建议都写下来。尽管如此,我还是想在这最后一节里试着传授一些这些年来我学到的更有价值的经验。

There’s more advice I could give, but it’s impossible to write all of it down in the short time I have left. Still, I’d like to try to impart some of the more valuable lessons I’ve learned over the years in this last section.

意识到你行为的后果BE AWARE OF THE CONSEQUENCES OF YOUR ACTIONS
每个人在这个世界上做的每一件事都会产生连锁反应。由于我们工作的性质,我们刺客在我们所从事的每一项工作中都会掀起巨大的涟漪。这个世界上的每个人,包括目标,都是某人的兄弟姐妹、父母或重要的人,他们都会因为你结束了目标的生命而痛恨你。这并不意味着所有人都会向你复仇,但如果他们发现了你的身份,就要做好准备。如果真的发生了,不要太放在心上。
劇透 -   :
Everything that everyone does in this world has a ripple effect. Because of the nature of our work, we assassins leave major ripples with every job we take. Everybody in this world, including the target, is somebody’s sibling, parent, or significant other, and those people will hate you for ending your target’s life. This doesn’t mean all of them will seek revenge on you, but be prepared for it to happen if they discover your identity. If it does happen, don’t take it personally.

这不仅仅适用在想要为之复仇的家庭成员们身上。举个由某人死亡而引起了巨大的连锁反应的例子吧,不妨看看引发了第一次世界大战的奥地利的弗朗茨·斐迪南大公遇刺一事。更近一点的,美国总统杰西·加雷蒂(Jesse Garrety)的死导致了威廉·“种族灭绝”·贾曼的上任。他企图对美洲土著进行大屠杀,这使得丹尼尔·嚎狼意图去着实施大百鬼舞(the Great Ghost Dance),这后来又导致了《丹佛条约》的签订。(译注:杰西·加雷蒂是被威廉·施普林格(William Springer)于10月15日所刺杀,但请不要搞错了,杰西·加雷蒂,威廉·贾曼,丹尼尔·嚎狼三个家伙都不是好人,杰西通过了拘禁北美土著的法案,威廉通过了要驱逐或者以其他手段(屠杀)赶走土著的法案,而丹尼尔此人则是宣称要把所有非原住民都赶出北美)只有一条龙才可能会去考虑清楚一个人的死亡可能会对世界产生的所有影响,但了解一次工作可能造成的广泛影响依然是值得的。
劇透 -   :
This applies to more than just vengeful family members. For some historical examples of major ripple effects caused by one person’s death, just look at the assassination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand of Austria, which sparked World War I. More recently, United States President Jesse Garrety’s death got William “Genocide” Jarman into office. His attempted Holocaust of the Native Americans drove Daniel Howling Coyote to implement the Great Ghost Dance, which in turn led to the Treaty of Denver. Only a dragon could possibly think of all the ways a person’s death could affect the world, but it still pays to be mindful of the wider consequences of a job.

不要搞砸了DON’T SCREW UP
我不觉得任何一个有点价值的刺客会想着把事情搞砸,这有有一个很值得一说的简单的原因:如果你搞砸了一趟活,你就会马上变成你雇主的主要目标了。毕竟,死人可不会讲话。避免这种命运的最好方法就是建立起不谈论自己工作的好名声。不幸的是,拥有完美的工作记录和惯于保持沉默的名声,并不一定能拯救你。即便活干成了,雇主也有可能把你给灭了。所以,除了要树立起这种名声之外,你必须得时刻保持警惕,时刻提防着背叛。如果这类事情真的发生了,毫不留情地保护好自己。
劇透 -   :
Not that I think any assassin worth a damn would try to screw up, but this is worth saying for one simple reason: When you screw up a job, you immediately become the first target of your employer. Dead men don’t tell tales, after all. The best way to avoid this fate is to build yourself a reputation for not talking about your jobs.
 Unfortunately, having a perfect job record and a reputation for staying silent won’t necessarily save you. An employer might decide to eliminate you even after a successful job. So in addition to building up that reputation, keep your guard up at all times, and always prepare for betrayal. If and when it happens, show no mercy in defending yourself.

引用
>你懂的,我想这也许能帮你了解为什么你会被你的现任雇主盯上。毕竟,如果这是因为你给搞砸了,你的这个建议就将会招来质疑了,不是吗?
> Snopes

> 因为这涉及到谈论某份工作,所以我必须说“无可奉告”
> Quietus

 > 好好算算吧,Snopes。他说在2034年真主联盟出现的时候,他是一个十几岁的少年。那是40年前的事了,这让他现在至少有53岁了,成年后每年都在干这类活,至少现在是这样的,他到了现在还活着。我敢说,这份记录就能够证明一切了。

劇透 -   :
> You know, it occurs to me that it might help to know why you’re being targeted by your current employer. After all, if it’s because you screwed up, that sort of calls your advice into question, doesn’t it?
> Snopes
> Since that would involve talking about a job, I must say “no comment.”
> Quietus
> Okay, do the math here, Snopes. He said that he was a teenager when the Alliance for Allah came along in 2034. That was forty years ago, which makes him at least fifty-three years old today, every adult year of that spent doing this job, and he’s still alive, at least for the moment. I’d say that record speaks for itself.

保持移动KEEP MOVING
不要在一个地方待太久了。四处搬动,即使只是在同一个城市的同一个区里。把你住的地区也换一换。如果你只是搬到雷德蒙荒地的另一个安全屋里,那也并不会比常年待在原来的那个雷德蒙荒地的安全屋里要好。偶尔在兰顿找个奢华的地方住,这就能让你不会被跟踪了。
与之相关联的是:去和几个可靠的整形外科医生和赝造者交朋友,以免你在需要改变你的外貌并得到一个与之对应的假SIN的时候束手无策。这可能是你在某份活进行得不如人意时的唯一选项。

劇透 -   :
Don’t stay in one place too long. Move around, even if it’s just to another district in the same city. Switch up the districts you stay in too. If you only move to safehouses in the Redmond Barrens, that’s not much better than staying in the same Barrens safehouse for years on end. Getting a ritzy place in Renton once in a while might be the last thing someone tracking you would expect.
 Somewhat related to this: Make friends with a reliable plastic surgeon and forger in case you need to change your appearance and get a corresponding fake SIN. That might be the only option if a job goes really bad.

明白你的极限KNOW YOUR LIMITS
如果你需要一你不具备的特殊技能,或者目标是某个你需要专门知识才能拿下的家伙,那就请来专业人士帮忙,或者直接拒绝掉这份工作。假设你的目标是吸血鬼,而你对被感染者一无所知,而你决定接受这份工作的话,去找一个吸血鬼猎人来帮你。不要害怕说“不”,因为工作已经超出了你的能力范围。这标志着你是一个聪明人和一个专业人士,而非一个懦夫。
劇透 -   :
If you need a special skill set that you don’t possess or if the target is someone you need special expertise to take down, contract a specialist for help or turn the job down. If your target’s a vampire and you know absolutely nothing about the Infected, get a vampire hunter to assist you if you decide to take the job. Don’t be afraid to say “no” because a job is beyond your skillset. It marks you as a smart man and a professional, not a coward.

引用
> 我已经记不清多年来我所见过的因为太担心自己的名声,不敢对他们做不到的活说“不”的狂奔者的人数了。并不是所有狂奔者都能活着做完那些活,即便是那些做到的,也因为他们过度歪曲自己的能力而使得其名声大降。这对他们名声带来的冲击可比拒绝一份工作要大多了。对你自己和你的潜在雇主们诚实点。淦哦,有时候只要你事先说了这份工作已经超出了你的能力的话,你的雇主都会给你找来干这部分活的专家的。

> I’ve lost count of the number of runners I’ve seen over the years that ended up in over their heads because they were too afraid for their reputations to say “no” to a job they couldn’t do. Not all of those runners made it out of those jobs alive, and even those that did took a major blow to their reps because they were exposed as misrepresenting their abilities. It is far more of a hit than their reps would have taken by turning the job down. Be honest with yourself and your potential employer. Hell, sometimes the employer will give you access to a specialist as part of the job if you say up front that it’s beyond your abilities.

集中自我CENTER YOURSELF
我的意思是,你得找到点什么能让你在工作中集中头脑和灵魂,以确保你你能保有人性。我喜欢培养些不涉及暴力的爱好,不论它是真实的还是虚拟的。毕竟,休息的关键就在于要挣脱暴力。这意味着,像城市混战或矩阵射击这类东西就免了吧。我的爱好是烹饪和卡拉ok。我很擅长前者,尤其是做意大利菜。后者,我则不怎擅长,但在不涉及模拟暴力的情况下大声唱出硬核摇滚或说唱歌曲确实是一种很好的发泄方式。
劇透 -   :
What I mean by this is that you need to find something to center your mind and soul between jobs so that you can hold onto your humanity. Personally, I’m a fan of getting a hobby, specifically something that doesn’t involve violence, whether simulated or real. The whole point is to take a break from violence, after all. This means that things like urban brawl or Matrix shooters are right out. My hobbies of choice are cooking and karaoke. I’m pretty good at the former, especially with Italian stuff. The latter, not so much, but belting out a hard rock or rap song can be a really nice way to let off some steam without involving simulated violence.

>这个家伙是被人格修正成了过渡保护型的足球妈咪了吗?靠杀人为生就忍受得了,在“超自然危机”里杀杀僵尸就没办法忍受了吗?(译注:(Soccer Mom ,一指中产阶级妇女 (住在郊区且有小孩的职业妇女),在美国选举中被视为强有力的(interest group)利益团体。非常重视小孩休闲活动,亲自开车接送小孩参加运动、活动的母亲。)
> Slamm-0!

>他没有说他没办法应付这些。这听起来更像是他想要将自己的生活分成几部分。我想这有点像是在他脑子里有一堵“墙”,他把所有的暴力都放在一边,把他生活的其他部分都放在另一边,这样它俩就永远不会碰面了。我能理解为什么要把这些给分隔开。当你的工作和他一样暴力的时候,在VR游戏中把东西都炸上天或者在投影仪上看城市混战的对你的吸引力应该会大大降低。不是每个狂奔者都是这样的,在接入点里有不少城市混战的铁粉,但有些家伙需要把这些东西分得更开些。
> Nephrine

>好,这些就是接下来的几代刺客都能看到的,我对我这几十年的工作经验的简单总结。不要浪费了这些。几秒钟前,我听到有汽车停在我公寓下的声音。我从窗户往外看,看到了几个全副武装的家伙,他们马上就会进来了。我想是就这样了吧。在我去到不管是什么的另一边之前,最后再闹腾一次吧。祝愿每个人都,安全与和平。

> When did this guy get taken over by an Overprotective Soccer Mom personafix? He can handle killing people for a living, but he can’t handle shooting zombies in Paranormal Crisis?
> Slamm-0!
> He didn’t say he couldn’t handle it. It sounds more like he wants to compartmentalize his life to some extent. I imagine that it’s sort of like a “wall” in his mind, and he keeps all the violence on one side and the rest of his life on the other, so that the two never meet. I can understand keeping them separate. When your job is as violent as his, the attraction of blowing stuff up in VR games or seeing Urban Brawl gunfights on trid is probably significantly reduced. That’s not true for every shadowrunner, there’s plenty of Urban Brawl fans here on JackPoint, but some people need that greater degree of separation.
> Nephrine
> Well, that’s the brief sum total of my decades of experience, there for the next few generations of assassins to see. Make it count. I heard the sound of cars pulling up outside my flat a few seconds ago. Looking out the window, I can see several heavily armed guys who look like they mean business approaching the entrance. I guess this is it. One last hurrah before I go on to whatever lies beyond. Safety and peace, everyone.
