Into The Shadows — Game Session — 016

Game summary for February 11, 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 licked their wounds and reloaded, waiting for any further attacks.  Dell’s drones alerted the team to activity across the camp, and the team went to investigate.  A bear-like piasma was charging forward followed by half a dozen neo-tribalists armed with spears, firearms, and Molotov cocktails!  Octane charged into the fray with an amazing leap over several barrels, but the piasma dodged his chainsaw attack.  It then mauled him.  Octane swapped to his knife and engaged a neo-tribalist. 

Hollywood advanced and opened fire on the piasma while dodging hurled Molotov cocktails.  Clutch started mowing down enemies with his roto-drone’s assault rifle.  Ballyhoo began hurling acid at the piasma but found himself dodging bottles of flaming liquid as well.  Octane stabbed one of the men, but he stepped back and flattened a full-auto burst of assault rifle ammunition into Octane’s armor.  The damage was not lethal, but it did knock the elf out.  The piasma spun around and mauled Hollywood nearly to death before being gunned down by Clutch. 

One of the men picked up Octane and started heading for the woods.  Quick-thinking Ballyhoo cast levitate and snatched him to safety!  He fell back and levitated Hollywood as well.  Clutch continued shooting down opponents, covering Ballyhoo’s retreat.  Meanwhile, Bhagat Singh made it into the fray and cut down one of the assailants with his great curved sword.  Suddenly, some of the barrels caught on fire by the Molotov cocktails exploded!  The shrapnel ripped into the last attacker, and Clutch finished him off with his drone.

  1. Octane says:

    Dell’s drones soon alert us that a bear-like paracritter accompanied by various humans are approaching another section of the compound. We immediately head that way and prepare for the attack.

    We start by focusing on the bear. It, however, is quite brutal and does some damage to me. I opt to switch to a squishier target, while Hollywood consecutively burst fires on the bear. It, however, mauls him, nearly killing him.

    One of the humans lobs a molotov at Clutch’s drone and damages it significantly. But it is able to keep flying and mow down the bear before it can finish off Hollywood.

    More human attackers throw molotovs at the party, but miss us for the most part. One of them picks up Hollywood’s unconscious body and begins heading for the forest. Ballyhoo, however, levitate’s Hollywood out of his arms, freeing up the attacker to get blasted by Clutch’s drone.

    I pull out my knife and attack one of the humans. Injured, but still standing, he steps back and full autos on me. It doesn’t pierce my armor, but it rattles the hell out of me, knocking me unconscious.

    When I came to, I was told what happened for the rest of the fight:
    Clutch kept taking out fighters while Ballyhoo escaped his attackers and lifted up my body and carried both Hollywood and me with him.
    With just a few attackers remaining, Singh shows up with his sword and immediately takes out one of them.
    One skid of barrels that had been hit by a Molotov exploded and injured the last remaining attacker, which also set him on fire. Clutch finishes him off with his drone.
