Here we Have a Smattering of Teams

Introducing all of your RAJEN teams. Most of these heroes hold items that will help us make it to the end. If you see them, help them along their way. If you are a robot, I pray you never see them.

Team – Serpentine:

It was on a museum-sponsored expedition to Egypt where noted electrical engineer, hacker, and outdoorsman Ryan first met Jane–a multilingual public relations expert, ex-NSA cryptologist, and long-distance runner. The two became fast friends while in search of ancient technologies, navigating untold dangers in the desert; from poisonous creatures to extreme conditions and hostile locals.

Returning from the expedition, they were eager set off once again for adventure and intrigue, travelling this time to the Peruvian Amazon to unlock the secrets of the Inca. What they found instead was a mysterious stranger alone in a cave at the base of the central mountain region. He had been living in complete isolation for many years. A man of few words, his background remained enigmatic though it was clear he’d had special ops training but had somehow fallen from grace, surviving many extreme escapes from peril.
Ryan and Jane were indoctrinated into his way of life and learned from him the sacred arts of surfing, hang-gliding, and sinking full-court Hail Mary hook shots. Rechristened #TeamSerpentine, their snake tattoos and eye patches mark them out as disciples of the Holy Order of Plissken.

Back in Chicago, #TeamSerpentine is uniquely trained to survive any scenario, including the impending robot apocalypse. While in the jungle, they leaned the truth about a powerful weapon that can knockout the new technological menace once and for all–but only if they both make it onto the human ship. As a pair they hold the key, so should one of them fall the other will swiftly sacrifice their own life to the other side, putting the weapon into the hands of the enemy.

Human and robot alike should fear the destruction that #TeamSerpentine can wield. How they ultimately mete it out will be determined on September 15th.

Team Serpentine’s Item:

While in the jungle, the strange old man told #TeamSerpentine of a system of satellites ringing the Earth, each with the power to generate targeted electromagnetic pulses which can knock out any electrical system in their blast radius. With the proper geosynchronous device and trigger, these could be re calibrated to destroy all robots left on the planet’s surface in one fell swoop. Of course, in the hands of the enemy they could also be used to swat the last human ship out of the sky like a fly.
The old man’s own detonate had been destroyed in a previous expulsion of the satellite’s power, but with Ryan’s engineering know-how, #TeamSerpentine was able to reconstruct the device with an added fail-safe–the triggering mechanism can be removed from the targeting computer. Only with both parts together can the weapon be activated.
Ryan carries the targeting computer and Jane carries the triggering mechanism. Will they both make it to the ship alive and be humanity’s greatest boon? Or will they be the legendary heroes of the AI who brought about the extinction of man with the push of one button?
