I can't think of a megacorp with a worse reputation among shadowrunners than Aztechnology.
These slags dream of remaking the world in the image of the old Aztec empire, no matter what the world wants. Among runners,
they are known for treachery and using sacrificial blood magic, but the general public never seems to catch on. Azzie PR is
incredible, and nothing the corp does sticks in the public's mind for more than a few days.
Aztechnology is based in the nation of Aztlan. Stretching from the former nation of Mexico to the Norhtern coast of South
America Aztlan, where control of computer voting ensures that the country is basically another division of the corp. The Azzies
provide security for the entire nation through Aztechnology Corporate Security (ACS), which also protects corporate holdings
all over the world and employs about 150,000 people. ACS goons are mean, and usually very well equipped, though not always
The current president and CEO of the corp is a puppet of the Board of Directors; he has recently disappeared. The Board
is using old recordings of him for trideo spots, a tactic that seems to be working just fine; not many people in Aztlan have
the guts to complain, if they even notice. Just who is on the Board is a matter of debate; the Aztlan government excused the
corp from having to disclose that information, so just who runs Aztechnology is unknown.
Through its subsidiaries, Aztechnology is the world's number-one producer of consumer goods, and it's a good bet that you
own at least something they have produced. The mega is also the most influential corp in the Algonkian-Manitou Council through
its Genetique subsidiary. Several nations, such as Tir Tairngire and Tir na Nog, refuse to allow Aztechnology to do business
within their borders, however, so not everyone in the world falls for their PR miracles.
