inspired RPG. The events of the film
have come and gone, and now, Cobb's
old team is trying to pick up the pieces.
Dream extraction is more prevalent
than ever... though far more illegal.
Is it worth the risk?

Arthur wasn't always part of Cobb's immediate team. In fact, once upon a time, Marissa was the point man. However, Marissa and Eames came as a packaged pair, as they were in a relationship, and Cobb never quite got over his nerves about the situation. It all came to a head during one extraction job in which the mark held a gun to Marissa's head. Even though they were only in a dream, and therefore Marissa would only wake up, Eames panicked. He couldn't stand the thought of a gun held to Marissa's head. He risked the mission in order to "save" her. Cobb was furious when he realized that their relationship was compromising their entire operation. They had a choice: either leave the extraction business... or one would "bury" the other so deep into their subconscious that they didn't even remember what the other looked like. At first, Eames and Marissa planned to run away together, but that all changed. On the day when they were going to leave, Eames decided that he wanted to stay. Arthur, who had come on as Marissa's replacement, was part of the mission that went into Eames' subconscious, and obliterated the memory of Marissa. But Eames couldn't forget her forever, and after seeing her in one of their old haunts, it all came rushing back. He left the team to join Marissa in Mombasa, which is where they were working at the time of the inception job. Now, they are married, and Marissa won't have a thing to do with Cobb.
----- Braxton's team
(indirectly) ----- Cronin
The leader of the Professionals, Miss Braxton, has formed an undercover operation hunting down the local rogues. Huntley doesn't trust Miss Braxton and her professions as far as he can throw them--this is his city, his beat, and he doesn't appreciate them getting in on it. It's for this reason that he refuses to let Braxton know the identity of Huntley's undercover man, even though Braxton has demanded the information from him multiple times. Braxton won't take no for an answer, and she's willing to do what she has to to get the information out of Huntley...even if it means sending her own team of professions to extract the information from the chief of police.
Mrs. Karne is hiding a secret. Her illegal addiction to the lifestyle of a dream infiltrating rogue. Never mind that her husband just happens to be in the police. To make things worse, her husband's best friend, Mr. Cronin, just happens to be the undercover police man everyone's been looking for. Things really start getting tricky when Mrs. Karne and Mr. Cronin are hired as a team, and have to work together despite their web of lies.
It's been almost half a year since the day Huntley and Bradley, partners on the beat, busted open what should've been a simple arrest. Instead, Huntley was wounded (which subsequently led to his promotion), and Bradley was shot in the head (which subsequently led to his unshakable coma). Bradley's fiancee, Walker, has grown weary of sitting beside Bradley's bed and not able to do anything about it. Desperate situations call for desperate measures, and Walker has tracked down a skilled ex-extractor she had the displeasure of putting behind bars, Black. Her offer? If he helps her get into her husband's head and try to bring him out, she'll pull the right strings in the system and get him out of the prison and under house arrest. Well. An hit of dream sleep, an opportunity to get out of the jail cell, and a pretty woman to work beside. What does he have to lose?
August 14th, 2011, a woman by the last name of Jarrah is investigated after various reports of suspicious activity. The police find the working of what looks like various materials for a homemade bomb scattered around her house. The report makes its way all the way up to the DEU, who take the investigation into their hands. Fagan, Roberts, and Pryce (on the job as more of a "tourist" than anything...much to Roberts extreme discomfort) are hired to delve into this woman's mind and uncover the truth. Besides...its not torture if she's dreaming it, is it?
