Helidrone Memory

Item

Image Cube25.jpg
Description This segment of memory used to reside in the control unit of a Midgard helicopter patrol drone, usually just called a helidrone. Chances are pretty good it contains some usable code or interesting video.
Type Data
Use The life of a helidrone is a surprisingly boring one, and much of it is recorded on video, but you manage to find an interesting fragment of memory.
Multi You combine the memories of several helidrones. Even with hours of video footage, there's not much going on. You do find a few interesting bits, though.
Effects You extract some computer code from the remaining memory. It might be useful.

You gained: networking functions or ?

or:
You learn a thing or two watching the grainy memories of combat.

You've earned 1 XP in Perception or Reflexes, or learn Indirect Fire or Short Burst

or, if you have used too many memory chips in a single day (possibly capped by your stats?):
All these clips of drones fighting have started to blur together.

Notes

After using ~60 drone memories* you can notice the mysterious drone signature with the following message:

There's a few strange patterns in the code you can't quite explain. It's like a subtle signature. You've seen it across dozens of drones, but it jumps out at you now. It's interesting… it only seems to appear in the oldest, original code. Whoever wrote it originally, over ten years ago, was obviously a genius, but it's hard to figure out what they were trying to do in a lot of passages.

Or, if Etheric:

There's a few strange patterns in the code you can't quite explain. It's like a subtle signature. You've seen it across dozens of drones, but it jumps out at you now. The longer you stare at the code, the more it feels like it's staring back… as though some great secret were encoded in those tiny stylistic quirks.

* Some vague anecdotal evidence that the "blurring together" message doesn't count, and possibly the code results don't count either.
