Summary

The team is hired to stop a haunting. They get to the mansion and find sophisticated matrix opposition and a low number of opfors. The team negotiates with the Opfor to leave the place and talks to the Johnson to tell him the job is done.

Background

Another team of runners has been hired to drive the Johnson out. They've taken up residence in his house while he stays in a hotel.

The Meet

The runners meet their Johnson at a Hotel. He asks the runners to deal with a demon that's been haunting his place. He asks them not to damage his tiger drones and he gives them the blueprints to his house, and the runners agree to the job without negotiating for price.

The Plan

Night Claws spends some time on the matrix hacking the Tiger drones and Maek spends some time Casting detection spells on the place, While Trash Panda astrally projects. Trash Panda finds a guardian of spirit patrolling on the Astral. She retreats. Maek finds two lifeforms inside. An Oni and a Troll. They plot to sneak into the security room of the mansion to get Night Claws access. Trash Panda climbs in to find a data-tap already on the security system. She places a Datatap on the data-tap, and is surprised to meet the patrolling Guardian Spirit.

The Run

The Guardian Spirit tells Trashpanda to come to the kitchen. Instead she runs out of the building, and the other runners hide. Eventually the other runners decide to meander in and they find three runners from a rival organization outside. The other runners try to negotiate for the team to betray their Johnson, but instead are persuaded to abandon their job for a favor and a lesser cut of their pay.

Trash Panda spends some time creating a fake video of a exorcism, with the team.

Aftermath

The team goes back to meet their Johnson. They tell him they drove off the person summoning the Demon, and fought the Demon, cleansing his home. They Show him the video as proof and receive their pay.

Ikari

Wow, I thought the rich were stupid, but they really do think they're more important than they are. A demonic portal in your home? The trids really do rot brains, huh. We were lucky those people from the Neo-haven were so tractable, we didn't have to shed runner blood to get the job done. Trash Panda has a nice flair for performance, but ultimately it turned out not to matter much. I hope that YoiJi fellow doesn't call too soon, he seems rather... sketchy, I suppose? I guess I'm one to talk.

Maek

So, this poor Johnson, too clueless to know he was being run out of town by a group of runners, lives in a giant house all alone save two giant kitty drones. Does anyone want to bet on how long this sucker remains rich?

Knew it was rival runners from the moment I could only detect three of them. I hope our paths don't cross again. Nothing about those runners, they seemed professional. Just a hassle.

I enjoyed acting in the trideo afterwards. Tata till the next job!

The next time this Johnson offers a run, I will take my own vehicle. Or better yet, it will occur over the matrix so he cannot keep switching between the meet locations. He pays up, at the least, so I cannot complain too much.
