Summary

The runners were hired to Stop Knight Errant from interfering with Vintage Misery and release some VM imposters from KE custody.

Background

VM contacted the runners to Meet them at a local bar to discuss terms.

The Meet

The meet took place in a dingy run down Bar. The meet was going as planned until one of the VM members started acting suspicious and tried to send a message to an unknown third party.

The Plan

The Plan was to trade the Dawkins Agent for the VM imposters.

The Run

The Runners arrived via air, and stealthily infiltrated the region where the compound was. They found a convenient cave in which to lay low and wait for nightfall, and use Luna's drones to survey the area. With that limited intel, the runners elected to levitate over the fence, and then hit the office building wherein most of the bug infested Firewatch were positioned, while Deimos and BB provided overwatch from the roof of the residential building nearby.

Their attempt at providing overwatch went... poorly, as shortly after engaging, Deimos went down, though she did manage to squash a bug with a satellite dish. BB dropped to the ground to drag her out of the line of fire, and handed her over to the Knight Errant officers that elected not to side with the bugs, before taking a burst of MG fire and going down herself. Meanwhile, in the other building, Frag Face splattered the first bug he came across, before engaging in a duel with the MMA trainer bug spirit that took a fair while, while Marionette and Luna provided supporting fire, either personally or via drones.

They continued doing the good work for several combat turns, during which time BB got up, whiffed, and then was put firmly back down, before one of the bugs attempted to finish the Banshee off, realizing then what she was. Thankfully, Marionette (I think) managed to distract him from doing more than superficial damage to the Infected, though she remained unconscious until the fight was over, as regeneration takes time. Eventually, Frag Face, Marionette, and Luna were able to destroy the remaining bugs, rescue 40 odd captives from certain infestation, and drag Deimos and BB back onto the airplane before HTR showed up.

Aftermath

They burned down the facility, dropped Wolf's Gaze and her compatriots off at a location of their choosing, and then returned to Seattle.

Rewards

  • 30,000 Nuyen, 40 karma, +3 rep Ex Firewatch, +3 rep Ares: Anti-Project Pyro
  • +1 PA Frag Face, Luna, and Marionette

Player After Action Reports (AARs)

Luna - Normally I don't pay much mind to Ares, Knight Errant are annoying but ineffective at dealing with organized crime on a large scale, especially when facing a group as powerful as the Ancients (though there are few worth considering our equals). They also aren't direct competitors in arms dealing. Legal purchases of their weapons go through them, we fight the yaks and vory for the illegal purchases. This bug business though...this is something else. It scares me. They dropped a banshee 3 different times (nearly managing to kill her) and sent Marion running scared twice. If the Ancients fight these things head on, we're doomed; we don't have the numbers or the strength to win without partnering with other...lesser groups.
