Elite Forces

The Powers That Be of the Sixth World maintain huge machines dedicated to enforcing and expanding their control over the world. Within those large organizations are smaller units that represent the elite arm, the "tip of the spear," that can be used to respond to extraordinary threats or to carry out missions requiring discretion, secrecy, and often times, deniability that are beyond the ken of shadowrunners. These elite forces exist within government, corporate and private militaries, security forces, law enforcement, and "other" entities.
