Shadowrun: Vancouver Hipsters
As its name suggests, Japanacorp Mitsuhama Computer Technologies (MCT) is primarily known as a computer company that’s also involved in robotics and heavy industry—but it’s less well known that they’re one of the biggest manufacturers of magical goods around (after Aztechnology). They’re also rumored to be in bed with the Yakuza, though the jury’s still out on who’s pulling the strings in that relationship. In any case, they’ve established quite a presence in CalFree over the last few years, taking a lead role in the control of San Francisco following the fall of rogue General Saito.
Shadowrunners have a love-hate view of working with MCT—the corp pays very well for success, but their tolerance for failure is only slightly less draconian than Saeder-Krupp’s (and S-K at least has the excuse of an actual dragon running the show). When running against them, success becomes even more important, because their “zero-zone” policy usually means unsuccessful runners don’t get out alive.
