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.

    The group flies to the rendezvous point/island, where we find Ares people waiting for our arrival. We exit the helicopter, but do not see Karen King. We call her up and confirm the people are legit. One of them takes the data and verifies the content. Another gives us certified credsticks as payment. We then part ways.
    Realizing that we don’t have a place to stash the helicopter, we decide to have Clutch‘s boat pick us up and drop the chopper in the puget sound.
    Wanting to lay low for a little while, we decide to head to Eureka, California, and let the heat cool off.
    After a few days off, the crew gets back together when Hollywood is hit up by Fast Freddy with a new job offer. We meet up, head back to Seattle, and contact Fast Freddy. He connects us with the client, Donnie; he is a retired officer investigating some animal attacks that are oddly reminiscent of a string of attacks he investigated back when he was active. He wants to hire us to deliver a restock of supplies and help fend off the attacks for a couple of days.
    We spend a couple of hours gathering what we need and head to the Crimson Crush gang’s bar in the barrens.
    Soon after arriving at the bar, a convoy of armored and gunned vans show up. The leader of the escorting party makes contact with us and motions for us to pack up as they are about to head out. Other people in the bar strike up deals with the convoy to gain passage as well.
    It takes a couple of hours to get out to the farm where our client is based. On the way we review the security video recordings of the attacks. They seem to come in waves: first dogs, then crows, then coyotes, eventually a bear.
    As we travel further out, our connection to the matrix fades. Eventually, we make it to the compound. When we near the farmhouse, we see mounds of animal carcasses, as well as many injured people. Donnie greets us, accompanied by a woman seemingly afflicted with some kind of mental issues. Before departing, Hollywood makes arrangements with the Crimson Crush escort leader to get picked up once we are done here.
    Donnie has Hollywood help in the triage area and Clutch help repair the generator. Ballyhoo and myself enter the house and meet Mr. Singh, the proprietor of the property.
