Good evening meat drones. Welcome to the latest neurostream of NeoCity Gangs, where I discuss the criminal organizations who rule our metro cesspit. Tonight’s upload will outline the Ordinance. So verify that datalink encryption and get ready to receive an info dump.
Because of the Catholic Death Cult craze, NeoCity Police investigators initially classified Ordinance as an apocalypse sect. Much of the organization’s attire and lexicon lent credence to that assessment. However the deception became apparent, once illicit activities revealed a pattern for artificial intelligence, cybernetic transhumanism, and milspec hardware. Though elaborate, its religious traits are counterintelligence theatrics to obfuscate observation. Ordinance is now recognized as a rogue espionage operation. An example of incompetent oversight and extraordinary autonomy.
Ordinance betrays its state sponsorship via wanton overkill. Whereas most gangs seek precision to limit collateral damage for resale material to acquire afterwards; Ordinance prefers gigawatt plasma rifles and rotary autocannons with UD-HEAPI (uranium depleted high explosive armor piercing incendiary) rounds to disintegrate targets. Unfortunately an equivalent amount of ordinance is necessary to stop them, due to reinforced hypercarbon dermal armor and duplicate internals.
Cybernetic hardware is predominantly North American, though targeting algorithms are indiscriminate firing patterns identical to those throughout the Kyushu Insurrection, with a slight hint of Second Palestine Massacre. To call these, “internationally condemned tactical routines,” would be a gross understatement. If the origin of Ordinance were unveiled as foreign, fallout would result in immediate sanctions, up to and including declaration of war. Nonetheless, I strongly doubt that is the case and believe they are domestic. Your government at work.
Since Ordinance has the firepower of first world dictatorships and the cruelty of pre-irradiated Arabian terrorist groups, how do other criminals compete against them? The fake cultists are fake gangsters. Ordinance preys exclusively on military industrial complexes for beta software, robotic prototypes, and experimental weapons. Monetary finances, narcotic supplies, protection rackets, and commercial goods hold no interest for them. It is commonly held they would depart NeoCity upon acquiring such finite technologies. Cartels caught in their crossfire with private military companies are, “at the wrong place, at the wrong time.” Its unique transhumanist composition also limits membership. Police estimate 63 living and 37 undead, without an immediate means to replace lost members; though current criminal activities indicate intention to reverse that situation. Furthermore Ordinance avoids public view, almost to Shadow Broker obsession, since identification constitutes an immediate Continental Military response. Therefore they negotiate ceasefires with other gangs when possible.
Ordinance is led by the Potifex, a frighteningly charismatic figure thanks to subconscious voice modulation. Always in accompaniment are twin Mother Superiors. I believe a triumvirate neural network is the reason. If so, Ordinance is in possession of bleeding edge wireless technologies reserved for elite special forces. That would also explain the zombie-like Zealots. Prior to the Rio Revenant Revelation, militaries utilized cybernetic bodies that could endure far more damage than human consciousness. Zealots are therefore cyborg corpses, reanimated through synthetic intelligence, until the body deteriorates beyond use. The more interesting implication, is Zealots demonstrate combat improvement. This means necromantic learning, not residual synaptics, constitutes programming. Clear violation of several crimes against humanity accords.
