The Starfield Ryujin Industries faction is a large conglomerate operating out of Neon. The city’s bright lights and cyberpunk themes hide a seedy underbelly filled with corruption, and it’s up to you if you want to get your hands dirty. Our guide discusses how you can become one of Ryujin Industries’ members, climbing the corporate ladder from lowly dreg to trusted henchman.
How to join Ryujin Industries in Starfield
The Starfield Ryujin Industries quest is called Back to the Grind. To start it, you’ll need to hear of a rumor concerning their job postings. This can occur as you’re exploring New Atlantis, where you’d overhear some NPCs chatting. Alternatively, you can head to the Volii system and the planet of Volii Alpha. There, you’ll see a landing site in Neon.
Job application and an interview in Imogene
Upon arriving in Neon Core, look for one of the company’s terminals along the street. There should be an option for a job application, which you can fill in. The answers are entirely up to you, though we opted to be more boastful about our character’s expertise (i.e. 10+ years of experience). No matter your answers, you’ll get invited to a follow-up interview, so don’t worry about what you select here.
When you’re done, submit your application and make your way to Ryujin Industries’ head office on the other side of the thoroughfare. Go up the elevator and talk to Lane. He’ll take you to Imogene, the person handling the operations. She’ll also ask some typical HR questions, such as how you’d see yourself after five years of working for the company. Answer as you see fit and she’ll give you a task.
The coffee errand and Tomo
Your next objective if you want to join the Starfield Ryujin Industries faction is, believe it or not, getting coffee from Terrabrew. Well, you’re starting out as an intern, after all.
Make your way to the Terrabrew shop and talk to the barista. Suddenly, a man named Tomo pulls a gun on you. It seems that he used to run errands for Imogene, and he’s become somewhat paranoid. Thankfully, you can use your Persuasion skill to calm him down.
After this incident, return to Imogene and tell her about what happened. You’ll then go to the boardroom, where you’ll talk to various corporate heads, handing them their coffee.
Once you speak with Imogene, she thinks you did a good job, and you’ll end up with a promotion. That leads to another objective, where you have to upload software into the databank of a rival corporation. Welcome to the world of corporate espionage and corrupt businesses.
That’s all you need to know about how to join Ryujin Industries in Starfield. Don’t forget that you can still be part of the United Colonies Vanguard, Freestar Collective Rangers, and the Crimson Fleet. You can also learn about all these rival forces in our factions guide.
