Run 2 - The Princess is in another castle

With a plan finally formed, the group set into action. They rolled up to the girl and her bodyguard as they got off the public transit near her home, Geas trying his tried-and-tested method of commanding them magically. However, Shen appeared unaffected, grabed the girl, and ran. Ziggy chased him down and filled him with stick’n’shock rounds that took the ork bodyguard down twitching while November handled traffic drones to ensure there was no photo evidence of the group there. In Astral, Brown and his lioness beast spirit ambushed and annihilated Shen’s magical guardian spirits before they even comprehended what was descending upon them. With the girl’s protection taken care of, November drove her van around and tossed the girl inside, and started driving to their drop off location.

Meanwhile, in Shaukeiwan another group of runners was busy negotiating a peace treaty with the Bloody Tigers gang, a group of a crazed and vicious marauders with no apparent loyalty to the greater Triads. Zheng’s negotiations were going well, when suddenly the Bloody Tigers and Chrome Dragons broke into a border dispute that dispelled any notion of peace. Thinking the peace talks a trick, Peng – leader of the Bloody Tigers – took a swipe with his cyber claw and tore into Zheng’s torso. Unfortunately for him, one of his bodyguards leaped into action and punched a hole in his chest that caused immediate death, the Bloody Tigers who witnessed this being shocked into paralysis. They took the chance to leave unharmed when it was granted and shambled out of the building, but unfortunately for the negotiation team they still remain in the middle of what is quickly becoming a warzone as a delicate package is rushing their way.

Perhaps worse for both parties, the fallen bodyguard Shen rose again as a drake for the first time, the trauma of the previous encounter causing his magic to emerge in the true form even he was unaware of. Now November’s van has an angered dracoform flying after it with a number of Bloody Tiger vehicles heading its way as well, with one agenda or another on their minds.

Run 2 - Your princess is in another castle

The group accepted a mission from a mysterious Ms. Johnson to kidnap a little girl, with the odd addendum that they would lose their pay if she were harmed in any way. On their way back to the underground parking lot, their group was attacked by a number of gangers and what appeared to be a bounty hunter that skewered Geas with a heavy grapple bolt. Thankfully Jah was with the social adept, and Brown, the group’s new Rastafarian monster hunting mage, managed to pull the bounty hunter from the roof of a nearby building with the strength of the spirit possessing him. The thugs themselves fell to the motorcycle might of Jebediah Zigfield, the Kobold drones of Zach, and November’s gun.

From there the party split off to do legwork, the group talking to their various contacts to piece together what information they could for the run. November and Ziggy combed their criminal contacts and know-how to figure out the girl had to have some sort of Triad connection, but it was kept very hush-hush. The general assumption is that her father used to be some big Triad leader, before he screwed up a gang war, lost the Red Dragons a lot of territory, and committed suicide over the affair. A few business connections revealed that the girl’s mother worked for Wuxing as a mid-level manager in their magic department, and that she was often away on international business trips. The location of her daughter’s school was found, as well as the important information that the girl has a bodyguard, known as Shen, that follows here where ever she goes.

Run 1 - Chips and Dip

h1 Run 1 – Chips and Dip

The Shadow Runners quickly and efficiently infiltrated a factory and sabotaged the work efforts, destroying BTL etchers and causing an electrical fire that would force the factory to close down. However, the group was too efficient – finishing the job before noon – and so alerted two other factories that were to be hit by other shadow running groups. Whether or not the other two groups were successful has yet to be seen.

Their new fixer, Silver, still paid them for their good work and it doesn’t appear like relations with him took a hit.
