Into The Shadows — Game Session — 001

Game summary for September 3, 2019, Into The Shadows campaign, Shadowrun 5th Edition, for Phoenix Gaming Club. Session included: Ballyhoo (Human Augmenter played by Andrew Renfrow), Chase (Troll Tank played by Kaliegh Averdick), Clutch (Human Transport Rigger played by Peyton Harmon), Dell (Human Technomancer played by Shane Bradley), Hollywood (Human Combat Medic played by Chris Harmon), Octane (Elf Razor played by Casey Scruggs), and Thay (Elf Street Shaman played by Taylor Averdick). Game Master for this session was Charles Plemons.

Each member of the soon-to-be-team found themselves hauled in for questioning by Knight Errant for the theft of a truckload of commlinks in Tacoma.  After quite a bit of questioning, they found themselves released after a lawyer, “Imaginary” Annie Goldsmith came busting in and demanded their release.  She invited them for a drink at Soybucks, and they were told she was a talent scout for Mr. Johnson who wanted to hire them for a run.  She provided them with a commlink number and told them to call the number from the Speakeasy bar in the Redmond Barrens, a bar frequented by Chase.  Chase warned them the rules of the bar, and they set out that evening.

The group had no problem entering the bar and making contact with Mr. Johnson.  He pitched this fledging group a run, and they agreed to the first offer of payment and didn’t ask any further questions.  He gave them the details, and they jumped up to head out.  Their mission was to retrieve a commlink from a man named Oxycode who is holed up at the Novelty Hills Sleep & Eat by any means necessary. 

On the way out, the team was surrounded by ghouls from the 162 gang and attacked!  The fight is only beginning, but several fists have been thrown, along with Hollywood’s gun (in a fumbled quick draw).  Clutch got a shot off, and Octane deeply stabbed one of the gangers.  Thay hurled a knife while Ballyhoo cast Increase Reflexes on Octane and began sustaining it.
