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

Bugs in the Underground! Their Insect Shaman died, but there's still workers around, and another shaman or queen could move into the area. http://shadowhaven.info/Last_One_Out_Hit_The_Lights

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

Some gangers who’s gang leader was corrupted by the use of blood magic got geeked in a plan by Aztech.http://shadowhaven.info/Ganger_baised

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.
