Background

The radical Eco-terrorist group known as LOGOS are looking to further their agenda by kidnapping prominent figures in the corporate world. A plan is devised using captured Ares prototype wing-suits to intercept the private jet of Walter Beckmeier while over the mid-Atlantic.

Meet

The runners head to a warehouse in the Tacoma docks and are greeted with what appears to be an automated message from LOGOS, though they do not know this at the time. Their misgivings aside they agree to head to Miami and get more information on the run.

Run

Accepting the offer from LOGOS they board a plane to Miami, which is currently in the throes of a powerful hurricane. With the weather beating down on them they meet with operatives of LOGOS and are taken to a private airfield near the coastal wall. A VTOL is waiting for them along with the prototype suits. Boarding the VTOL they intercept Walter's jet and in a daring aerial maneuver board it using the wing-suits.

A short but brutal gun-fight ensues once they cut their way into the plane, with Yokai slipping out following an Ice Sheet being cast at one end of the plane. Even so, Walter Beckmeier is retrieved and they safely exit the planet, traveling down via parachute through the storm clouds to a waiting ice-breaker from LOGOS. Once aboard they are paid by an old, asian-looking man in an ornate suit holding an amber-topped cane and sent back to Seattle.

Aftermath

Walter Beckmeier is filmed and publically executed on a live Matrix feed.

AAR: We were told to go into this abandoned building. There was no johnon, just this floating ARO ball that spoke to us. We were to highjack a private plane, mid Atlantic, capture a target of significant wealth and power. Anything else is expendable, the offer was non-negotiable. Boy, I do like these ultra shady jobs. I accepted it and were picked up on Sea-Tac next day for a flight to Miami, FL. The first thing I witnessed when I landed on the tarmac was the massive storm blowing, reminded me of back home. A transport picked us up where we actually spoke to the Johnson, the offer was re-negotiated and he agreed to offer us magical goods in exchange for our service, now how can I refuse that. Man kept speaking about this guy defiling mother earth and what not. Few hours later we took a flight to mid Atlantic, as per plan to intercept the flight. I have to say, the jet suits that these guys took out for us was some impressive piece of tech. We were to jump out of the plane at mach 1.5 and intercept the flight. It was one hell of an adrenaline rush and excalibur almost got himself splattered by the plane's metal as he was cutting through it. I started the party by throwing in a nice aoe spell and it..began. Unfortunately, when the fun just began the enemy fucking mage made me slip using some cheap ice sheet tactic and before I could do anything, I flew out of the airplane. By the time I recovered myself from helplessly falling, the plane was long gone. It took me a while to get to the rest of the team and by then they had already secured the target. We were rescued by a VTOL and dropped off on a ship where I met the J in person, some old man, kept saying that mother earth will be pleased now. Oh well, I got my shiny centering focus, now to figure out how to use this thing.
