Data Shamans

Is there life beyond the Recycling Bin?
Where does all the data go on a corrupted or destroyed hard disk?
Did you neglect to back up all your family photos before the disk crashed?

Data shamans are able to go beyond the veil and communicate with the spirits of lost software.

They can do an after-the-fact data recovery, but also they can trawl around for secret files that their owners had thought to be long-ago deleted.

And then there are the black-hat data shamans too, who can root out all the fragments of virus code that have ever been written or cleaned away in a disk scan. Taking bits and pieces from the gigantic slush pile of discarded code, they can synthesise monster viruses to unleash upon the world.

But now, there are reports from the "after-del" that the data spirits are restless. They warn that something big is coming, bigger even than what Y2K or MyDoom threatened to be.

What existential threat could be echoing its ominous approach across both the realms of the real infosphere and the astral-bit plane?


There's a similar thread to this one, with a bunch of urban fantasy settings, over on that I've been enjoying reading-
Collaborative Settings:
Cyberpunk: Duopoly Nation
Space Opera: Behind the King's Eclipse
And heaps of forum collabs, 30+ and counting!
