Background

Paragon is a full mage that is aspected to the Fire-Bringer.

The Meet

Paragon discusses delivery terms with the person who wants a mysterious cold cannister delivered to a stuffer shack.

The Plan

Use levitation spells to move it around, go through a checkpoint like a normal person and *hope*.

The Run

Paragon successfully moves the goods through the checkpoint with no issue. As she went to leave the stuffer shack, she was intercepted by an elf student who needed a paper delivered to her professor that she couldn't do her self because of her need to visit her grandmother at a local hospital. Paragon successfully represses the urge to fangirl over the fact that U-Dub uses actual paper to deliver for their papers and look into the backpack to see her papers and talk to her about the joys of college life. Paragon does not question the actual validity of the fact that they probably don't actually have paper, nor why it was specifically a backpack that needs to be delivered. Paragon asks if there is any illegal stuff in the bag and is told no, and accepts this at face value.

Paragon delivers this to the U-dubs campus, informs the student that the paper is delivered and promptly gets caught in the blast radius of the bomb inside the backpack. Barely staying conscious from the blast, Paragon leaves the scene and drives over to some hospital near the stuffer shack and stalks it for a couple hours hoping that the do-badder who tricked her into doing such a horrible thing at the behest of her mentor spirit. After having no success, and realizing that they probably lied about what they did, Paragon goes to Dr Elijah "Snowflake" Turing to get treated for their explosion wounds. after a day and a half of treatment Paragon then contacts Obelix to get more info on what happened in the U-Dub Bombing. Paragon is informed of the 8 dead and 17 wounded during the explosion and smolders in a quaking rage at being used like this. Paragon makes a poor lie after a pointed question from Obelix about being the one who planted the bomb and quickly logs off.

Paragon stalks the chummer shack where she got contacted by the "student", and assenses the area. she spots a adept power use where she was talked to by the Elf. She then talks to the clerk who was somehow very helpful and gave a description of the runner team who did this along with her associates.

A cybered up dwarf, a troll, a human accompanied the the elf adept. Paragon contacts Patches on more info on the group and a chance to talk with them. Paragon meets with them at a Redmond Bar named "Gus's Bar". orders an alcohol and gets to business with he people. Paragon gets a scathing dress down on the nature of the shadows and feels really bad, and lies through her teeth when she states that she is gonna go home and sulk about being used as a courier for a bomb. The troll not-so-subtly tells Paragon that any instigating actions will result in broken Arms for Paragon. Paragon makes a bad excuse and kinda just leaves. She then promptly stalks them through a window while on an invisiblity spell, and follows them to their safe house.

Paragon uses a levitation spell to come to the roof of the safe house, hooks onto the side and ends both invisibility and levitation spell and climbs up, nearly slipping in the process. She sneaks past the earth spirit, through a hatch ont he ceiling and onto a cat-walk. She taking a picture of the human and dwarf watching some trids, and cracks open the door. Paragon promptly gets punched in the face by a gigantic troll with titanium bones and cyber spurs. by a miracle, Paragon did not perish on the spot.

Aftermath

Paragon wakes up in a burning safe house with a ominous note to stop following these runners, and a life lesson to not wear her heart so openly.
