Background

A man named Jackie finds a buyer for a large amount of Pharma grade Pixie Dust. He had some muscle who was going to escort him to sell it but some crazy mono whip wielding elf put all of them in the hospital. He hires the runners to take him to where he stashed the Drugs inside a false wall built in a new home in Tacoma. Then they need to bring him to Everett Docks where he has a Russian (Read Vory) person who is willing to buy them.

Meet

The runners are given the location of a house in Tacoma and a time of 630. The runners arrive early as some often do to find a condemned one story house with a rusted chain link fence outside. The grass in the front, the part that was not covered in weeds was about a meter tall. A passed out drunk squatter sits on the porch. The players go inside and are assaulted by the smell of urine and worse. While they are inside, Blue Streak is outside in his truck. A man, who's head is down, wearing a baseball cap, large sunglasses walks quickly down the alley besides the house and tries to get inside Blue Streaks truck. Blue Streak lets him in and the runners come back out to see him. He's really jittery, with some bad wires and paranoid as f***. Heart takes some time to calm him down and get him to turn off his wires, which he does. He tells them that they need to take him to a stash and help him get it then take him to sell it. He's still paranoid constantly looking out the windows. The players eventually decide to start off. He offers 10% to each player and Heart convinces him to give her a bit more and a few doses of the drug.

Run

The players find out that the Johnson (Jackie) is bugged to all hell, with tags that are slaved to a deck with some decent sleaze. They find that there are 3 drones with following him, and eventually a spirit in the astral tracking him. They shoot the drones down once they find it. They eliminate the bugs when they find them. But the spirit remains when they pull up besides the house that contain the stash. There were tags also put on Blue Streaks vehicle by the drones while they were not seen. As they stop at the house and the 2 go inside to get the drugs they hear in the distance a chorus of motorcycle engines heading towards them. This is when Maddox engages the spirit in the astral, a Force 7 Plant spirit. He bests it but it took a little while. While he did this a pack of motorcycle riders wearing armor and wielding SMG's and Shotguns gets off there bike. What appears as the leader shouts out: "Jackie its time to return what you stole!" Blue Streak makes a 10 hit perception roll to identify the mage under his motorcycle armor and the smallest hint of magical trappings give away one of the bikers. So Blue Streak fires at the mage, and Plumo follows suit leaving the mage with a large hole in his head. The leader is next to fall with coordinated shots by Plumo and Blue Streak. The rest of the bikers spread out around the white picket fence around the house shooting at the windows that Plumo and Blue Streak were at. Maddox who was hurt from his battle with the spirit crawls out of the closet and attempts to help Plumo with a Combat Sense spell since Plumo was taking some damage. Heart spends her time watching the field of view from each of the runners video feeds and offering words of encouragement to help. Plumo almost goes down but luck spares him and him and Blue Streak take out a couple more Bikers. The rest seeing they are loosing run out attempt to patch their fallen leader and mage pick them up and put them on their bikes and drive away. Maddox uses some magic to eliminate 2 more and 2 get away with the bodies of the likely dead leader and mage on them. The ride to Everett is pretty uneventful after they eliminate the bugs on Blue Streaks Truck. The meeting with the Russian and a runner named Silver Crow at the Everett docks goes pretty well. A show of strength is used to make sure that Jackie isn't double crossed and gets paid. Heart manages to get a little more for the drugs but asks for 250k at first and gets rebuffed. Settling for 170k. 10% is 17k for the runners, 20k with 5 hits of Pharma pixie dust for Heart.

Aftermath

Jackie takes the money and while in the heat of the moment told Heart he would party with her later forgets about that and travels to Russia with the Russian part of the deal for the drugs.
