Into The Shadows — Game Session — 013

Game summary for January 14, 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), 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 landed the stolen chopper on the Ares ship and made the exchange, collecting their fee.  They then remotely called in Clutch’s boat and abandoned the helicopter, letting it crash into the sound.  Then they took a two-week vacation to the California Free State to lay low a while. 

After returning to Seattle, they received an early morning call from Fast Freddy who got them in touch with Donnie Hua, a retired Lone Star officer.  He convinced them to accept a run to the Redmond Barrens to investigate some deaths, some strange animal attacks, and to bring in needed medical and mechanical supplies.  However, they had to leave in 3 hours to get generator parts to Kaur’s Farm before nightfall. 

The group gathered their gear and traveled to the infamous Crusher 495 bar to meet up with a Crimson Crush convoy hired to take them to the farm.  They met Arona, a female troll member of Crimson Crush.  The team watched the various riffraff and desperate denizens of the Barrens negotiating passage on the convoy.  The trip was mostly uneventful; the Crush disabled one IED, but otherwise were not harassed. 

Once they arrived at the farm, they found piles of dead animals and lots of tired and wounded people.  The gear was unloaded, and Hollywood went off to help tend to the injured.  Clutch was asked to help with the generator repair.  Octane and Ballyhoo accompanied Donnie and Chaaya into the compound to meet with the patron of the farm, Bhagat Singh.  They discovered him to be a massive troll armed with a sweeping curved sword.  They exchanged some pleasantries for a few minutes while Hollywood and Clutch were doing what they could to help out.
