CONSPIRACY OVER COFFEE

Having survived their run in with a pack of ravenous Ghouls, the Runners return to the relative comfort of their hotel to await further contact with Javid. After paying a brief visit to the store owner Amenemhet to check on his well being, Azriel receives a message with the details for their next encounter with the drug-lord.

As the time approaches, Judas moves to an adjacent dirigible to provide overwatch for the group as Azriel, Raziel, and Scot move in to meet Javid at a local Soy-kaf shop known as Iris. Introducing their new comrade Scot as Socrates to the increasingly suspicious Javid, the group begins to negotiate the details of their clandestine work over soy-kaf and real coffee.

A tenuous conversation, Javid finally agrees that he may be able to make some concessions for the Seattle market in exchange for the information the Runners are willing to provide. However, first he requires proof. Bidding the group adieu in a somewhat less than respectable fashion, he takes his leave to await delivery of the goods.

But trouble brews within Gray Sky Company. Judas, having heard most of the conversation, is furious with the part he has been unwittingly made to play. He confronts the group in a state between fury and panic, making his concerns for the safety of himself, his contact, and his beloved Winry clearly known to the group. He is met, however, with little sympathy. The other Runners assure him that the identity of his contact is still a closely guarded secret and that if things were to get out of hand, that coming for him would be the last thing on Yow-Ming’s mind. This does little to sate Judas’s anger and he takes his leave of the group, using his plane ticket to catch an early flight home; but not before stopping off at a local jewelry shop and purchasing a ring.

With one member of their team abandoning the mission due to a difference of opinion, the rest of the Runners make ready for the next days task. The team makes its plans and quickly begins to put it into action. Azriel and Scot return to one of the shopping dirigibles in search of a Simrig to gather the evidence Javid requires. With luck, they manage to find a shop that will get them one, leaving barely enough time to make the meeting.

Now the team makes their way down to the poluted ground levels of Stuttgart to scout the warehouse and prepare for the following day.

DANGER IN THE DIRIGIBLES!

An arranged meeting amid the dirigible shops of Stuttgart; Azriel, Raziel, and Javid are accosted by a group of ghouls. The trio quickly duck into a nearby shop and barricade the door. However, much to the chagrin of the shops proprietor; one Amenemhet Joames, the hungry creatures begin to break their way in. With Azriel turning the shops floor into a ice rink in a effort to by time, Raziel, Javid, and Amenemhet escape out the back. Soon after joined by Azriel, the two runners utilize their magics to hide their presence from their would be pursuers as they navigate the back halls of the dirigible and escape to the far side.

Offering his thanks for their assistance, Javid heads off for safer areas with a promise to contact the duo soon. The Runners ready to leave, they are halted by a request from Amenemhet. Unable to ignore the shop keep’s plea for help, Azriel and Raziel contact the rest of their group and make their way back towards the shop to confront the hungry horde.

Their colleagues joining them, a short skirmish ensues. Avoiding the remaining patch of Azriel’s ice as much as they can (or merely sliding across it as they need) the group charges into the shop. The first enemy seen is quickly felled as Jackie, Balthazar, Azriel and his summoned spirit make short work of the unnatural foe. But no sooner do they dispatch one than two more appear from another shop behind them! Bullets, lightning, magic and spirits prove to be too much for the voracious predators as they quickly succomb to the Shadowrunner’ assault!

His shop saved with little collateral damage, Amenemhet thanks the Runners for their assistance and; after much assurances that, despite Jackie’s insinuations, he is in no danger, the group leaves with the promise to return and check on his well being later.

A crisis averted, adrenaline in their veins, and intrigue in the air; what will become of Javid’s promise to contact the group and will their plan be successful?

SUSPENSE IN THE SKIES!

Stuttgart, Germany! Our Runners have traveled by air to the city of dirigibles on a mission from an old contact. Upon arrival and receipt of the tools they hope would not be necessary, they find themselves set up in their hotel. A long night is followed quickly by a split morning. While everyone slept, Judas made his way to make an initial rendezvous with one Daniel Titanus.

Meanwhile, Jackie slipped out from the watchful gaze of the rest of the team and headed off to take in the sights via a local skydiving company. After a successful dive, Jackie absconded with the companies parachute. Upon her return and subsequent scolding from both Raziel and Azriel; Scot wiped the RFID chips clean that were stored within the ill gotten goods.

Their mission pressing; Azriel, Raziel, Scot, and Jackie made their way to meet up with Daniel Titanus. After several walking laps around the dirigible, an agreement was reached to trade one favor for another. In an effort to ingratiate themselves further, and to satisfy the twittering desires of Jackie, a duel, however brief it was, was arranged between Daniel and Jackie.

Sent back to the hotel with Balthazar to lick her wounds, the rest of the team set into motion a plan to fulfill Daniel’s request. A small drone, controlled by Judas from a nearby restroom stall, made its way across the ceiling of a very prestigious restaurant, narrowly escaping a deadly table cloth wielding server, and planted a listening device over a table in order to gain Daniel as much information on his target as possible. Their mission successful, Daniel treats the team to a five star breakfast including real eggs and coffee.

Later, Judas, accompanied by Balthazar who streamed the entire encounter, followed through on his arranged meeting with Liam, the head of the local law enforcement unit in Stuttgart. Scot displayed the meeting for the others back at the hotel on the 3D Vid and, after much fumbling by Judas and shouting from the rest of the team at the images, Judas managed to arrange a deal for weapons to be delivered to Liam from his contact back in Seattle. Sensing an opportunity, Raziel quickly formulated a new plan and nimbly worked to put it into action. With much coaching and some monetary assistance from Azriel, Judas was able to arrange for an initial shipment to be sent in the next couple of days.

Unbeknownst to Judas, Azriel and Raziel have arranged for Javid to see the delivery of this merchandise in an effort to assist him in gaining leverage over the law officer in order to continue the production and shipment of his illicit goods.

Now, the two walk with Javid amid the dirigibles of Stuttgart in a dangerous game of innuendo and ploys. But who will prove to be the more dangerous; Javid himself, or the group of Ghouls which the group now finds coming towards them?

So…imminent collision with Balthazar’s wall…
The armored truck hits the wall at 35 mph and is shunted into the motorcycle that had hit the wall and is now pinned against the guardrail. (That guy is having a bad day.) Raziel attempts to launch herself form the bed of Truckasaurus Rex (TR) and over the wall when TR collides with the armored truck. She failed. There is now a massive pile-up against the wall. Azriel and Jackie attempt to take-out the guys in the civilian escort. In total; Jackie shoots out a window and gets shot in return, Azriel stabbed a guy and got splattered in blood and yuck because Jackie blew away the guy that shot her, Azriel gets shocked by the stabbed guy, Jackie gets Tasered twice and is unconscious, Judas sniped the second guy in the car and Syn shoots the last guy. Civilian escort is now neutralized.
Meanwhile, the guys in the armored truck shoot a grenade at TR and the windshield is now covered in blue goo. Azriel moves on to trade shots with the guys in the armored truck and Judas snipes him to finish him off. The driver of the truck is shooting at Raziel, who’s been cutting the hinges on the back doors of the truck with a mini-welder this whole time. Once the hinges are cut, Azriel pulls open the door to reveal 2 figures, shackled and hooded. He pulls the hood off Seppo and says “Good morning sir. Your carriage awaits.” Seppo is dragged out of the truck and thrown in the back of TR. Raziel get into the truck with Seppo while listening to Syn cuss-out Judas for putting Jackie in the truck before Syn could Stim-patch her. Azriel jumps on the bike with Syn and they take off in the opposite direction of TR.
Did that read somewhat chaotically? Good, because it’s hard to write a chaotic event concisely.

Syn and Azriel arrive at McMillian at around 10am, well before anything is happening. The rest of the team is waiting about halfway between the 2 secondary split points along the routes. As plain-clothes officers show up and 5 armored trucks, Azriel is taking photos and short videos and sending them to Scot, who is then passing on relevant information to the rest of the team. Eventually, the trucks begin being loaded, via canvas gangway. Once a truck is loaded, it pulls away with 2 motorcycles flanking it, with the riders carrying fuck-you automatics. As the prisoners are being loaded, Raziel gets their names from her contact inside the prison.

• Truck 1: Gemini Albin
• Truck 2: Oscar Mervin and Goosecap Tutku
• Truck 3: Presumably Empty
• Truck 4: Wahyu and Hyacinthus Jozefo
• Truck 5: Gonway Mark and Seppo Love
Once all the trucks are loaded and are heading out, Scot puts 2 tags on Truck 5 and Azriel follows it along the rooftops and Syn loosely follows on his bike. Azriel notes that each truck also has a civilian escort following it with 2 guards inside. After all splits, we know that Seppo’s truck, as well as Truck 3, is headed to the construction site. The team in Truckasaurus Rex (Judas’s Truck) heads there to set up the ambush. On the way there, Syn and Azriel pace an old man in the geo to put some distance between Trucks 3 and 5. Everyone is rapidly approaching the construction site in this order: Truck 3 and escorts, Syn, motorcycle 1 (MC1), Seppo truck, civilian escort, motorcycle 2 (MC2) and Truckasaurus Rex (TR). Suddenly…ACTION! Azriel throws a flash-bang into the car of an angry black woman and causes a huge accident between Trucks 3 and 5. TR then runs MC2 off the road and Balthazar casts a wall between MC 1 and Syn. After hitting the wall, MC1 is smashed against the guardrail and is now in a world of hurt, if he’s conscious. The guy on MC2 took a ton of damage and is out of the fight. We next need to deal with the imminent collision of TR and Balthazar’s wall. I am just not sure how well this plan was thought through…

A bit more planning before we take a run at this bitch…

We know:
*Which prisoners are placed on which truck as they are being loaded.
*There 4 possible ambush points along the 4 routes; 2 sharp turns, a construction site and a long stretch of abandoned road.
*The vehicles are coming from Advanced Tech Autocraft. (?)

After much debate and arguing, we finally came up with a plan that will hopefully work. Syn and Azriel will go to McMillian’s and figure out which truck Seppo gets loaded into. From there they will relay the truck number to Scot, who will tag it via RFID. Azriel and Syn will follow the truck through the city and to the second split point, hopefully arriving before the trucks actually do. Once the trucks reach the second split point, Syn and Azriel will relay which route the truck is actually taking and speed past it to the ambush point along the chosen route. From there…it will probably be an improvised guns-blazing, grenade throwing, rocket-launching fight-for-your-life type run.

May the odds be ever in your favor.

Prep for operation Cover Our Ass

Looks like Syn hit the bottle hard again and has been doing his best impression of a coma patient. It’s nice to know that even he finds his limit every so often. Well since he is MIA I thought I, Judas, should leave a note in his diary to fill him in on all the work we did while he was in the bathtub singing the poke-rap.

We started off by collaborating on what we didn’t know and realized that we NEEDED to find a way to know which transport our mark will be taking. So we did some digging into our contacts and found two guys that work for McMillan prison that could be blackmailed. One of which frequents a local bar. WHICH APPARENTLY MEANS I HAVE TO GO. Fuckdammit. The place had shit fit written all over it. Well we got in and got to work.

Raziel located the guy we were going to bribe and started hitting on the attractive guy in his group. After which point Balthazar played the roll of the jealous ex-boyfriend and started high fiving the guys friends in the face with his fist. Raziel played the damsel in distress and had the schmuck “rescue” her out a side door. Once there the tables turned; shock gloves to his throat Raziel brokered a deal. Two grand, and a promise to leave him alone, and he will supply us with the information about which transport our mark will be using.

After that we regrouped and continued our prep work. I took out an armored car for a test drive to determine the weaknesses, and found few. The thing is basically air force 1 on wheels. Once disabled, if such a thing is even possible, we think we can power weld through the exterior hinges on the door. We did however also scout out the routes likely to be taken and found a few ambush points.

Gohdammit… Syn is teabagging our dishes… gotta go.

Planning on how in the hell we’re going to get Seppo out of that prison transport…

The intel that we were able to get from Andronikos:
*Seppo is going to be transferred in an armored lead-mined vehicle.
*He will be transferred to either Fort Lewis or Josep Correctional Facility.
*The trucks are leaving McMillian at 1pm on Sunday 15 May 2072.
Intel that we were able to gather on our own:
*The model of truck he’ll be transferred in comes right off the line with the lead lining.
*We have maps of the 4 possible routes to the 2 prisons.
*Nothing is impeding any of the routes, so they are all viable options.
*The trucks will be impenetrable to thermo vision.
*We know the vehicles are being rented to Lanford Security Conglomerate.
*You can asterally project in to the trucks, though magicians can form barriers against this if they are employed to do so.

There was also discussion about potential plans of attack, but no consensus was reach about anything.
