Vesta runs a Russian Roulette-type game in the V-World in which players and hangers-on bet on whether weapons selected by a spin of a wheel would or would not have a round in the chamber. Tamara Adama comes to Vesta asking for help to leave V-World. Vesta shoots her, expecting Tamara to de-rez and be ejected, but was amazed when that did not happen. Vesta arranges for Tamara to pull off a heist in New Cap City to pay her way home. Vesta later learns that the real Tamara had died in the MAGLEV bombing, therefore her avatar is stuck in V-World. Vesta plans to use Tamara for more gaming and thefts, but Tamara shoots her avatar dead, ejecting Vesta from the game.
