Prologue - May 2078: Run with the hunted

The story of ShadowHaven picks up just after the events of Brackhaven Breakhaven in Hard Targets. Chief of Staff Corrine Dakin, Seattle Commissioner of Race Relations Jassila Feddersen and Brackhaven Investments United Corporate Council Representative William Roger all end up dead in due to an apparent natural cause, an accident, and a bloody murder, respectively. However, the coincidence of so many Brackhaven allies taking a dirt nap leads Brackhaven to undertake a brutal campaign of revenge against the Shadows, hiring the private mercenary company NullNode to geek as many runners as they can find in the hopes of sending a message to the shadows. Some of the notable deaths included the Sysop of the network of runners and support personnel in Seattle whose death triggered a deadman's switch, deleting the shadow host and dumping its files into the resonance. Emile Corrigan becomes the new chief of staff to Brackhaven.

June 2078: Dancing for rain

A Shadowrunner Sysop TANJ, a low-level assistant to the sysop of the network of runners now in ruins, started to reorganize the Seattle shadows. An emergency extraction of a runner doing a long con in a Knight Errant was conducted before she ended up as the next victim. A low-level advertising corporation was forced into bankruptcy and brought in order to form Blue Suited Joker Consulting, Inc., a shell corporation for shadow runners. A free sprite, planted by the previous sysop, was recovered and informed to aid the restarting of the shadow network.

The previous sysop's deadman's switch also dumped a large number of files, found on the comlink of William Roger, to a reporter and activist named Holly Nicholson. It also provided funding to hire runners to protect Holly until the data, which further implicated Brackhaven in Operation Daybreak, was published.

July 2078: In the distance, thunder cracks

The public at large was still not truly aware of Brackhaven's involvement with Operation Daybreak. So, Enduring Resistance sponsored runners to replace a projected video with one detailing Brackhaven's involvement as well as changing a fireworks display so that it spelled out "Brackhaven did Daybreak" during the Ares' Freedom Day celebrations on the 4th of July. Runners suppress an Ares investigation into the previously rescued corporate espionage runner. Aztechnology conducts a rescue of one of their executives turned ghoul, Carmela Monteagudo Rosales, and start training her to become a shadow asset. Meanwhile, an anti-BTL rapper in Puyallup wins a Taco Temple prize and safe extraction in order to start his own record label.

August 2078: The First Drop

Anti-Brackhaven resentment grows across the city, with protests and marches taking place daily. The activist group Enduring Resistance sponsored a mission to cover Seattle in anti-Brackhaven advertisements, with the crown of the mission replacing the Brackhaven Investments logo at Brackhaven's tower with "Brackhaven did Daybreak". Due to the growing mistrust over Brackhaven, Ares attempts to incite anti-Brackhaven protesters into violence with BTLs, but runners are able to shut the program down by blowing up the BTL lab along with the project team members. The same runners also defeat a Brackhaven sponsored Night Hunter attack on the protests, resulting in only one injured protester. A mysterious woman with full body replacement cybernetics hired runners to retrieve an item from the Barrens before a group in a Tiltrotor could.

Shadowrunners, involved in a feud between restaurants Le Cochon Rose and Mucho Bucco, discover a tape with the last known appearance of Edmund Jefferies, press secretary to Governor Brackhaven until late 2074, when he disappeared. There is another man, Emile Corrigan, current chief of staff to Brackhaven, seen meeting with the Edmund. This explosive tape is delivered to the acting district attorney Dana Oaks.

September 2078: The Storms of September

Politics in Seattle

Brackhaven, sensing his control slipping. Sends his chief of staff to a retreat to get liquidated. Lucky, Dana Oaks - along with brave runners - rescue him. They also manage to fight off the mercenary unit Null Node hired by Brackhaven to attempt to stop Mr. Corrigan from spilling what he knows to the acting DA. Brackhaven also locks down the city, desperately trying to hold onto power. But it is too little, too late. The truth of his actions comes out and Brackhaven is forced to resign. Arch-Conservative Deputy Governor Chuck King takes over. (Link to Welcome to the Breakdown)

Deckercon and the Beginning of the End of NeoNet

Deckcon worldwide takes place. It uses technology similar in what is found in Dante’s Inferno to connect convention centers around the world in a non-stop weekend long convention.

Emboldened by the seeming incoming collapse of the arch-conservative party, runners are hired by Tattered Blag Flags to destroy an Ares/KE matrix listening post (link to Broadcast/Signal/Frequency) and rescue TBF members conducting a raid on an oSin enrollment center in Seattle. (link to Midnight Hands)

An Ares demi-GOD is replaced with a Horizon body snatcher who changes his speech from one demanding a restricted matrix to one asking for a more open matrix in order to enhance its democratizing force. (link to Keynote) Kivanet also uses Deckercon to recruit a bunch of Technomancers. (link to Satellite)

Other Things

The run that made the mana storm: Wuxing hired runners to escort a team of geomancers to a power site in Glow City, where a pair of low force Firefly bug spirits were hiding out. Mana surge went towards and into the Tiger Mountain State Park. Link

October 2078: Prologue to War

With the oSIN enrollment center down, Anarchist Black Cross hire runners to destroy the remaining hard disk version of the database and let those who got tagged with oSINs back into Seattle. (link to Zero Visibility)

Politics in Seattle

With Acting District Attorney Dana Oaks’ investigation into the Arch-Conservative party heating up, protests grow in Seattle. (Link to A Beautiful Indifference) Prominent leaders of these protests emerge, channeling their guilt from their service in Null Node. However, leading these protests get contracts put on their heads from NullNode. Luckily, the runners hired help them escape. (Link To Them These Streets Belong)

Things heat up further when the arch-conservatives start cracking down on their staffers. They falsey capture and torture a staff who they suspect is working with Ms. Oaks. Runners are sent to rescue that staffer along with a staffer(link to From Heads Unworthy) who is actually acting as a witness (link to Wolves). With these shocking details revealed, the whole arch-conservative party is forced to resign with the exception of Industrial Commissioner Kotov. Tattered Black Flags, not satisfied with leaving things there, find dirt on Commissioner Kotov and force him to resign.

Commissioner of Public Works Natoko Munakata becomes Governor, urging the city to calm down for the coming elections.

Lead up to the Triad/Yakuza War

Runners nab a katana from Kakei Steve of the Shotozumi-gumi (https://www.reddit.com/r/ShadowHaven/comments/7594hj/probie_limited_edition_20171014_2000_utc/)

Runners went to San Francisco and retrieved a summoning focus trapped in a Gold Rush era ship underneath Chinatown, fending of blood spirits and Yakuza, while making a deal with a Triad http://www.shadowhaven.info/Gold,_Jade,_and_Bone

Other Things

A building set sail as a consequence of the earlier mana surge. Runners were hired by the corporate courts to turn it into rubble. They succeeded. Link

November 2078: Fire Storm

Seattle Politics

Horizon's data that's been giving them an edge in the election was stolen, but there's a lot of it.

Mana Storm in Seattle

An earlier run moved a leyline in Seattle, however, the mana in Seattle backlashes to restore the leyline to its original place.

Because of this, a newly awakened Metahuman gang has the magical resources to take on the Trog Killers. They then hire runners to take out the wounded at a Paladin Health and Medical Group clinic. (Link to the Great Die Off Part 1) Other runners rescue a surgeling captured by ShadowHaven runners in an extraction job for Wuxing. Yet another runner team rescues a surgeling from an MCT research facility. (Link to Victory) Lead up to the Triad/Yakuza War The daughter of a Shotozumi gumi boss fell in love with a Chinese man and they eloped. The son "Sojiro Sato" an adept was hunting them down but failed because of our heroic runners. The Shotozumi were shamed before other gumis. http://shadowhaven.info/All_You_Need_Is_Love

Frustrated Sojiro hired runners and ordered a hit against "Fatty" a Chinese-Japanese human who used to go by the name of Genji Yamamoto during his Yakuza days and has now defected to the 88s triads. The PCs successfully carry out the assassination without causing a full on syndicate war, but the runners also killed 5 88s goons and wrecked an illegal ware shop. The 88s will know something is trying to wage a shadow war.

http://shadowhaven.info/All_You_Need_Is_Kill

Japanocrop-Yama King Storyline

Shiawase organized Seattle fashion week, showing off their new line of ware in their term "augmented fashion future". Universal Omintech hired PCs to kidnap the host of the fashion week and a chief scientist Dr. Giulia Marie Bisonette, in an attempt to persuade her to join them (she's a French elf in Shiawase so not very happy). Shiawase's show gets ruined and they lose a valuable asset. Losing face in front of other 2 Japanocorps. Its possible that MCT or Renraku may have tipped off UO about the prototype ware Bisonette was working on. http://shadowhaven.info/The_Bleeding_Edge_of_Progress

Hideo Masamune is the last in the line of guardians to guard one of the cursed sword forged by Muramasa. The blade was on its way to Seattle when the ship was ambushed and stolen by a team of Renraku Red ninjas. The sword acts as a key to the realm of one of the Yama Kings. Renraku wanted to use the blade to siphon off enough magical energy and apply it to heir new prototype tech to do catapult them way ahead of the other two Japanocorps. The blade became unstable and so they took shelter in the now abandoned underground labs of ACHE and jury rigged some equipment to contain the energy from the blade, stabilizing it. The runners in an attempt to retrieve the blade, defeated the red ninjas but also opened a small rift and set free the demon tainted soul of Muramasa. The runners successfully banished the demon lord back to the Shadowlands and took the sword back to Masamune. http://shadowhaven.info/The_Demon_Blade

Displeased with the failure of the Red ninja and curious about the Haven. Renraku hired Haven runners to track down another artifact (they did not want to antagonize Haven yet by going after Muramasa for now), that is tied to the Yama King legends. Deep in the Himalayas outside Tibet border. The runners tracked down a cursed death mask, which traps the soul of a monk and a supposed demon in eternal conflict. The runners, through use of violence managed to retrieve the mask for Renraku, this making doomsday clock tick a little faster. What could ever go wrong… http://shadowhaven.info/Shangri-La

Other Events

An Ork is rescued from an Paladin Health and Medical Group operation to make BTLs more additive. (Link To The Rumours…)

The Ghoul Liberation League hired runners to kill a toxic blood mage mystic adept ghoul (the combination of all of those is due to the fact that he was spreading HMHVV). Adept powers were toxic, spells were blood; mostly things like blood blade and giger spit, using his own Infected blood. Link, Wiki Pending

Dwight Holt, hapless Explorer, lost his body again, this time to a biker gang known as Heck’s Saints (legally distinct from Hells Angels) that hacked his car and redirected it out to the middle of nowhere. Biker gang had some Markers with local wild bike spirits. Had. Link, Wiki Pending

Meistersingers hired runners to recover stolen kraken eggs from an underwater base in an inland lake to quieten a kraken mother. Base was not too much more than a lodge with Oxygenate bound to it. Success. Link, Wiki Pending

The war against the the bugs in the underground continue. http://shadowhaven.info/Last_One_Out_Hit_The_Lights_Part_2

A raid against a Aztech black site fails, allowing an Aztech research black site in the barrens involving unethical research into a radioactive mutagenic substance and fungi, is now fully operational.

http://shadowhaven.info/Corrupt_Findings

Runners battled pirates in Puget Sound, fighting a particularly nasty Ork pirate captain named Khrushchev, they ended up freeing a bunch of Changeling slaves, and Khrushchev blew up his ship and escaped.

December 2078: Blood Soaked Snow

Marriage Troubles

Following the chaos of the previous year, December begins with some old fashioned corporate intrigue as Michelle Serrano, and James Turing plot the murder of Dr. Walter Serrano, CEO of Serrano Petrochemicals. The runners, Ashe, Maddox, Memnoch, and T-Bone, succeed in their task, but are quickly faced with the consequences of helping greed, over doing what was right as the workers of Serrano Petrochemicals lose their healthcare, and their children’s education.

Bloody Business

The Runners go off into the deep end. First,”A’, Memnoch, Vulcan, and Weaver, help an Investigator Anothony Mercer, to capture the serial kill Joe Hess. Joe Hess had made a partnership with the Blood Revenant of Daria Antunez de Prieto. Using Joe’s victims to perform her experiments into blood magic, this duo drove terror into the heart of the Redmond Barrens. When the runners finally caught up with them, they were forced to face their fears through illusion magic, but they overcame the obstacle. Having defeated the Revenant in its own metaplanar temple, Joe Hess is left to deal with the consequences of his murders.

Risky Politics

However, they fall further into corporate intrigue as Booker, Peacemaker, and Scooter accept a run from Ares to annihilate a base of Firewatch operatives on Blake Island. Ironic, that nothing is left but ashes when they finished.

Some of the ShadowHaven runners go further into the shadows as Booker, kilbo, and Mister Sarcarian accept a job from Humanis(A political group focused around racism against metahumans) to perform property damage, which they blame a local Ork/Troll rights group.

This trend continues as Booker, Captain Freeball, Memnoch, and Weaver are sent on a run to track down Brad Jackson and Christina Rice, daughter of a corp executive. Finding that Brad had sold Christina to the Vory, they make sure that he is arrested by the authorities, while also rescuing Christina and returning her to her father.

April Serrano, daughter of the previously murdered Walter Serrano, hires Memnoch, Moose, and Peacemaker, to steal information that would convict Michelle Seranno and James Turing. She is almost killed in the job, but the runners succeed and the killers are put on trial.

War In Seattle

Following the events in All You Need Is Kill(hyperlink), the 88s want revenge for Fatty’s death. So, in calling back to All You Need Is Love, they murdered poor Jackie Ma, and Maggie Sato, and presented Maggie’s head as a declaration of war to the Shotozumi-gumi by hiring Bones, Candle, and Kitten to leave the package in her brother’s office.

With war declared, the plotline continues in Philosophy of Ceremonies, as a retired boss of the Shotozumi-gumi hires Peacemaker, Lamm, and Maddox to keep 88 assassins from ruining one of his daughter’s weddings. Needless to say, the wedding goes off without a hitch, and everyone lives happily ever after. Except those three Triad assassins.

However, being shadowrunners and playing both sides, the next step in the war has Booker, Maddox, Nero, and Ray assassinating Miyoshi Senjuro of the Shotozumi-gumi in his own food processing plant, and then using his corpse to contaminate the food goods, causing several restaurants to be temporarily closed down.

The war closes out in December with Exitus and Snake Eye’s rigging one of the Yakuza’s casinos to win for the House. Following the Johnson’s wishes, they fake a digital signature of the 88s, only putting fuel on the fire.

Oh The Humanis

The Year closes out as the runners accept two jobs from the Humanis Policlub.

The first, is a job to assassinate a rival Humanis leader. The runners are successful, but the Policlub once again blames it on methumans. Tensions are rising.

The last job, just before Christmas, is when a Humanis member learned that a bar nearby her neighborhood has a Merrow(think Mermaid, but more fishy)  entertainer. She hires the runners to exterminate the Awakened, saying that it is feral and should be put down. The runners instead decided to protect the performer, and even negotiate her a better working contract, all while fighting off other assassins. The Year closes out on a redemptive note.

January 2079: Forgotten and Explosive

Update On The Warfront!

Kicking the new year off with a bang, we start with Aden Grogali, formerly of the MET2K. Coming to Seattle after being dishonorably discharged, he begins a plot to bring the Italian Mafia into the Shotozumi-gumi and 88s Gang War. He kidnaps Spider Kage’s son, threatening to kill him if the Yakuza do not attack the Mafia.

Instead, the Yakuza hire our runners, Marion, Rabbit, Rook, and Snake Eyes, to rescue the hostage. But the run goes south, Spider Kage’s son is killed, and the runners receive a black mark on their record.

In another part of Seattle, the runners of The Pain, Disorder, a Cataclysmic Dawn, gave a bomb to the Octagon Triads. Wanting in on the Yakuza-Triad war, the Octagon plan on blowing up the Tattered Black Flag triads while framing the Yakuza, in the hopes that all of the Triads in Seattle, as well as Knight Errant,  join in and eliminate the Shotozumi-gumi. The runners work with the Yakuza to disable the bomb. Lives are saved, but the run is failed, and the Octagon are not happy.

But then, the startling happens! The Shotozuni-gumi want to hire the runners, Liquid, Peacemaker, and Y3, as security for upcoming peace talks! However, it is all a ploy as the runners’ real job is to kidnap one of the Octagon’s mages during the meeting. Which they succeed at, pleasing the Shotozumi-gumi, and annoying the Octagon.

The Forgetting Cobra

The runner named Cobra has amnesia. However, fellow runner Ashe, has been helping her to reclaim her past.

While in her noodle shop, Noodle’s Noodles, Cobra has flashbacks to a battlefield, where she and her unit are under fire from a sniper. Ashe arrives on the tail end, and shows Cobra a memorial MeFeed for a sensei from one of her previous flashbacks. Ashe also tells her that she used to work for Raven Security Ltd. This triggers more memories for Cobra, and also helps her to remember Julian Lynch, a former lover. Ashe does a quick search and discovers that Julian died ten months ago. This triggers the final flashback, as Cobra remembers being dragged from the battlefield, and Julian’s body.

A few days later, Cobra invites Ashe to Toronto, her hometown, in a hope to reclaim more of her memories. This instead causes Cobra to interact with her mentor spirit during the flight. She reclaims most of her memories after the discussion, and instead spends the trip making new ones with Ashe.

February 2079: Forgotten but Digital

Little Trouble with Big Renraku

Riley Martinez is a Renraku employee, who is one of the blessed few to witness the birth of an AI. However, due to her documented paranoia about surveillance, she has left Renraku to build a nursery for her “future children”. Renraku wants this data back, and so they some Yakuza to retrieve her.

Unfortunately, Kyle Bradmine, an Ares employee, gets wind of the retrieval and hires John, the Hurricane, and Y3, to intercept Riley first.

The runners managed to find out where Riley was hiding out, just in time to intercept the Yakuza who were also pursuing her. They managed to retrieve the data and destroy all but one copy, which Kyle has them videotape flushing down the toilet, before sending the video to Renraku. Riley is left to be retrieved by the megacorp.

However, a little while later, Renraku has taken Riley’s former team, and put them on the chopping block, while also sending runners to search the sewers for the lost chip. One of Riley’s former coworkers, Ryujin Gen, hires Booker, Brick, John, and Shepard, to find the data first. Unfortunately, Ryujin knows very little about the actual situation other than Riley was retrieved, and was supposed to have the data on her.

Luckily, John, having been involved with the previous run, knows more about the situation. They manage to defeat the Renraku runners, as well as “The Beast” that was living in the sewers, and retrieve the data chip. Ryujin returns the chip to Renraku, and saves his team from being fired.

Forgetting Cobra, Part 2

Cobra is at it again. Enlisting help from Ashe and Maddox, she tracks down her last surviving coworker. Upon meeting him, he blames her for him being in the Bellevue mental hospital, which triggers her final flashback. She realizes that she did indeed put him in the hospital, as she had been in the middle of SURGEing, and in a temporary lapse, had thrown him out a window. With all of her memories restored, she knows who she is, and has resolved to fixing some of the previous wrongs.

March 2079: Of Dragons and Pests

Crouching Runners, Paying Dragon

The Church of the Dragon has learned of an expedition to uncover a crescent staff that might hold information about the 4th World. They discover the head of the expedition, Dr. Engles, is being wined and dined by the Red Dragons Triad. Posing as one of the prostitutes, the runners manage to steal the doctor’s comm, which they then use to infiltrate a storage facility and steal the staff. They get into a fight with the Triad guards afterwards, but they escape, and hand the staff over to the Church.

Pest Control

Kyle Bradmine is tired of the Bug Spirits in Ares. They keep posturing to him, and all he’s ever done is be helpful and playful towards them. So rude. Anyways, he’s hired Firebug, the Hurricane, John, and Kris to set a trap for some of the higher ranking possessed individuals. Thanks to the intel that Kyle provided, the runners finish the job without a hitch and are in and out before too much trouble.

Fischer tags in for John, as the plan moves to its next phase. They sneak back into the Ares building, and plant more traps. As a result, when everything hits the fan, more than just the top exec Bug Spirits are killed off. The Wasp Hive now knows not to screw with Kyle Bradmine.

This however seems to have an unintended side effect. The Wasp Hive is relying on their resident Bug Shaman, Matthew Garneau. Aztechnology, who has been investigating the hive, impersonates an Evo Johnson, and hires A, Cobra, Dapper, and T-Bone, to capture the Bug Shaman.

Matthew had made contact with a fellow street mage named Lela Canales. Lela has contacted Marcelo Rojas, a member of the local gang Bot’Kham(Sons of Kham), to act as security for her. The runners are supposed to meet up with them in the Ork Underground, but when they arrive, Marcelo is dead, and Lela has been taken by Bug-possessed mercenaries.

With a little magic, the runners manage to track her down, and they fight the Bug Shaman, and subdue him. Aztechnology gets their bug shaman, and the Bot’Kham get their revenge fro Marcelo’s death.

April 2079: Dance Under the Burning Flags

Dirty In The Kitchen

When a Tir Prince wants his favorite chef to cater his daughter. Ms. wedding, what does he do when he finds the chef is being held hostage by Yellow Lotus Triads? He hires =SUM, Mr. Irons, Siren, Vicar, and Witchblade to extract the man and his family.

Everything seems to be going well, as the team does an excellent job of reconnaissance for the job. Unfortunately, there is a breakdown in communication between Witchblade and the rest of the team, which ends up leaving them a runner and a vehicle short. Being forced to give up the job, the team gives the fruits of their labor to the Johnson, making it easier for the next team.

Black Flag Politics

Upset with Horizon having their own gubernatorial candidate in the Technocratic Party, Aztechnology hires Ashe, Belladonna, Dokkaebi, and Frau Reiher to do something about it.

The run seems to be going good at first, as the team realizes that Knight Errant and Horizon are working close together for security. They get their shot lined up and - miss. Well, more, they would have hit if some bodyguard hadn’t jumped in the way.

So the team tries again. They find out the politician is having dinner at the Space Needle, and so they send Belladonna in undercover. She pulls the candidate away from the crowd, literally takes one for the team, and is then carted away by an ambulance, a job well done.

Smokin’ Hijinks

The Eco-Terrorists of TerraFirma! want to tag an MCT Factory. However, the members they sent in all got killed. So instead, they hire Crownless, Paragon, Plumo, and Ranger to do it for them.

The runners organize a plan to disable the factory’s power supply, which would let them sneak in. This goes off explosively, as they enter the facility, and start killing guards. They tag the smokestack, and then move on to the administrative building.

There, they coerce the scientists into giving up access codes, which they then hand over to the ecoterrorists. Another run gone well.

Party of the Month

April ends with a quiet bang as Molly Carney, local rich kid, hires the runners Paz, Peacemaker, and Vydra to be extra security for her party. They bribe security to look the other way, and keep out the drug dealers, letting the party go without a hitch into the month of May.

May 2079: Enduring Horizon

Event, Horizon’s

Mr. William, aka Base, of Horizon is a very youthful and energetic individual. Too youthful and energetic, apparently.

Mr. Delgado of Horizon hires Maddox, Peacemaker, and Plumo for one simple task: Capturing Mr. William, and bringing them to him. Alive, but preferably intact.

The team starts out by reconnoitering the warehouse that Base and his friends from Enduring Resistance are hiding in. They note down their routines, and then try to catch him while he’s out in a van. Unfortunately, that goes bad, and the team has to regroup.

The next go round, they opt for a stealthier approach and gas everyone inside the warehouse. It almost works, except the guards outside notice all of the health monitors going off. Everyone fights free with their prize, and make it back to the Johnson. An hour later, and they’re returning Base to his home and buddies.

May Day Parade

Enduring Resistance wants to make some noise at the upcoming parade. And so, they hire Fischer, Paladin, Paz, and Witchblade to sneak in a massive sound system. They do so by posing as an HVAC repair crew, and install the sound system into the Glass Door Building Management company building. It almost goes belly up when they lift in the system by blimp, but thankfully they’re able to pass it off as innovative, and finish the run.

Following May Day, a team of Enduring Resistance runners, that includes the aforementioned “Base”, were attempting to tag the top of the local Ares building. However, much to the horror of his teammates, Base jumps, and commits suicide.

The Ms. Johnson hires Fischer, Marionnette, Mirage, and Spectre to retrieve Base’s body, and his cyberdeck. There is also a bonus for any information that leads to whoever murdered Base, as the Enduring Resistance does not believe it was voluntary suicide.

The team manages to track their way to Mr. Delgado of Horizon, and he informs them that Base was a sleeper agent, who was sent to demoralize Enduring Resistance, and that then they were planning on returning his cyberdeck anyway, as it was infected with a complex virus. They hoof it to retrieve his body befre it is incinerated, and then pass it, the cyberdeck, and the info back to Enduring Resistance.
