Summary

The gang go and collect on a debt, by smashing up a bunch of robots and stuffing a man in a bag.

Background

Dale Applewood is a local drone racer, who has taken out a significant loan to pay for a shiny new cranially-integrated cyberdeck, then refused to pay it back. Unfortunately for him, the mysterious person he took the loan from has hired Mindy Dahnerhardt, an unscrupulous and extremely unlicensed surgeon, for a little repo work.

The Meet

The runners met with Mindy outside of a storage unit in Tacoma, where she explained the situation - they were to retrieve Dale as unharmed as possible, so as to avoid damaging the cyberdeck inside his brain, and so Mindy could make a proper example out of him.

The Plan

Shove the target into a Faraday bag ASAP to prevent any signals getting out. Other than that, wing it.

The Run

The runners travelled to Dale's house in Snohomish, travelling through the Redmond barrens to avoid drawing any attention in Scrappenny's yerzed-out van. They briefly ran into a ganger trap, but thanks to the power of Run-Flat Tires, they didn't even have to slow down.

Arriving at the house, Apotheosis approached the front door, while Tempo went around the back and immediately spotted Dale through a window. Immediately, combat broke out, with several flying drones opening fire on Tempo. Around the front, Apotheosis axed down the door and was met with a pair of sword-wielding robots, which Scrapenny and her drones quickly dispatched. While Tempo continued to fight the hoverdrones, the other two picked off a group of shotgun-wielding walker-drones.

With the drones dispatched, the runners restrained Dale while he was cowering in the bathroom, gagged him, and stuffed him into the Faraday bag, then into Scrappenny's van.

Aftermath

The team delivered Dale to Mindy, who was very pleased with their performance, even offering them an opportunity to "see how the proverbial sausage is made", an offer that everybody declined. Dale was immediately sedated, taken into the storage unit, and everybody tried not to think about what happened next.

Game Quotes

Player After Action Reports (AARs)

Tempo - Well most of us came out okay, Scrappenny had a bit of a negative drug reaction but other than that we all came out well. The J was a bit weird but they paid well and appreciated our work. Apotheosis got me interested in cyber limbs, and am impressed with Srappenny's ability to run their drones. Generally went smooth and doubt I will get heat off this, though I do worry about Scrappenny's car being seen.
