Into The Shadows — Game Session — 007

Game summary for November 12, 2019, Into The Shadows campaign, Shadowrun 5th Edition, for Phoenix Gaming Club. Session included: Ballyhoo (Human Augmenter played by Andrew Renfrow), Clutch (Human Transport Rigger played by Peyton Harmon), Dell (Human Technomancer played by Shane Bradley), Hollywood (Human Combat Medic played by Chris Harmon), and Octane (Elf Razor played by Casey Scruggs). Game Master for this session was Charles Plemons.

The team drove around for a while as Dell messed with the commlink taken from Dietrich.  He is able to get through the encryption and recover part of a file.  He then took it and combined it with the original file and make one long document.  The team was amazed because it seemed to be proof of Brackhaven’s nefarious dealings.  Dell realized he had probably alerted Overwatch in all his prodding around and shut off the device.  The group continued to drive erratically all over town. 

After a brief discussion, the team decided to sell the commlink(s) to Ares.  They had Dell find a number for her, and they called her.  Upon learning of two commlinks and some negotiation with Hollywood, she upped her price to 235,000 nuyen.  However, she demanded they have both commlinks with them at a meet.  The group told her they would have them in 4 hours. 

The team realized they had to get back into the zoo, so the scoped it out with a drone and realized contractors were coming in and out to do some damage estimations.  They tailed a van back to a warehouse.  Three of the four men left, but one stayed behind.  Ballyhoo cast Mask upon Octane to make him appear as a human who may work there, and he sneaked in and choked out the man, Joe Reynolds.  He left him bound with plastic restraints and gagged with his own underwear.  Posing as Joe, Octane drove the contractor van back to the zoo and walked up to the gate.  The guards were not paying much attention until the wave scanner alerted on Octane’s cyberware!  He was asked to go back through, and the machine must have glitched because it did not go off the second time.  Octane was allowed in, and he went to the locker and got the commlink.  He then walked right out the front door. 

Hollywood called Karen King back, and they agreed to meet in a park north of town in two hours.  While driving there, Hollywood noticed they were being tailed by men on motorcycles.  A little hacking and research later, and Dell was able to learn these were registered to Mitsuhama Computer Technologies.  Dell had earlier figured out the Japanese man to whom they spoke earlier worked for MCT! 

Clutch took off through traffic, and the cycles gunned it in pursuit.  However, Clutch displayed an amazing ability to weave in and out of traffic, and combined with his deployed thermal smoke, he was able to out maneuver and lose the bikers.

    Dell meets back up with the group. We brief him on our encounter at the zoo and hand over Dietrich’s commlink.
    After a little bit of hacking, he is able to break through it’s security and locate a file. However, he also realizes that Overwatch has taken notice of his work and will mobilize a strike team to locate us. He shuts off the commlink. As we are already driving around, we keep moving.
    We review the file and realize it’s contents match up with the contents of the corrupted file from the other commlink. We assemble the contents.
    Without Overwatch actively on our trail, we decide to sell the second commlink. We call up the Ares contact, Karen King. Unaware of the second commlink’s contents, she increases her offer to only 235K nuyen. Hollywood negotiates with her that we will meet with her in 4 hours but that we will also require guaranteed safety.
    Dell sends a fly to the zoo and tracks a crew leaving. They go to their company’s warehouse to finish up the day. After a half-hour, only one of them is still there. We decide to incapacitate that one and obtain their badge, so we can return to the zoo and grab the commlink.
    Ballyhoo casts mask on me to look like one of the crew members. I enter the warehouse and begin looking for the person or an unused badge. I locate the person, typing up an invoice, and choke him out. I take his badge and tie him up, sticking him in the storage room. I grab the keys to the company van, get the zoo locker key, and head to the zoo.
    I get in the zoo, get the commlink, and get out without any hubbub.
    I ditch the van, badge, and work clothes and Hollywood calls up Karen from the original commlink. She agrees to meet us in a couple of hours at a park.
    I send a copy of the reconstructed file to Ajay.
    While headed out to the area, Hollywood notices that we have a tail. Dell sends out a fly and gets the motorcycle’s license plate. He then does a search to find it’s owner–Mitsuhama.
    Clutch is able to lose them.
