Into The Shadows — Game Session — 012

Game summary for January 7, 2020, 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 piled into the elevator as both Dell and Clutch tried desperately to hack it.  Finally, they succeeded, and it ascended to the 55th floor.  The group piled out, and Octane used his foam explosives to blow up the stairs in the two stairwells before the guards could make it to the top while the others jammed the elevator doors open with office furniture.  Octane then rigged the elevator to blow in case they needed it to.  The group then went out and hid under the helipad awaiting the chopper.

The helicopter landed, and two armed men emerged obviously having trouble with their comms with building security.  VP Muller was quickly ushered off the roof and into the stairwell.  The team emerged and hijacked the helicopter from the pilot.  They plunged off the roof right as one of the guards returned and opened fire.

The group cheered as they began to speed off into the night.  However, one of the building windows exploded outward as a western dragon burst forth and took up pursuit!  It lashed the chopper with flaming breath, badly damaging the vehicle, but Clutch was able to keep it aloft.  Octane threw open the door, and the team unleashed a barrage of bullets and spells at the dragon.  Some struck true, others bounced off its thick scales.  Ballyhoo hit it with magic as Clutch began to outpace it.  Out of range of its breath, the dragon hurled spells of its own.  It knocked Dell unconscious and rocked the chopper.  Again Clutch’s expert piloting skills kept them airborne and moving.  With some impressive maneuvering, he dodged around buildings and left the dragon far behind!  The group then headed out to sea to rendezvous with the Ares vessel to make the drop.
