Scene 1: Vory Warehouse. The Collective are instructed to wait outside a warehouse for their next job. Unbeknownst to them, the warehouse is owned and operated by Nikolai Kirilov, one of the leaders of the Vory.
Nikolai and his men don’t seem to recognize the Collective as the group that wiped out Mikael Petrov and Ivan Romanov. Still, they are wary of outsiders and don’t seem too happy about working with American shadowrunners.
Short on manpower, Nikolai asks the Collective to pay the Three Kings a visit and either recruit them or destroy them. Nikolai agrees to pay each runner 1,000¥ up front and 4,000¥ when the job is complete.
The Collective accept the job and Nikolai gives them a map of the Three Kings’ location.
Outside the warehouse, before the team gets in their vehicles, they are approached by Maria Kirilova. She is the daughter of Nikolai Kirilov. She asks for their help and gives Zer0 the address of where to find her. She is called back into the warehouse.
Scene 2: Casquilho Imports. The Collective make plans to double-cross the Vory and go talk to Don Casquilho. They inform the Don of the Vory’s plans and agree to help turn the Three Kings over to Casquilho control. Both parties agree to have Miguel Sanchez accompany the team into the Aurora Warrens.
Scene 3: Tony’s Apartment. Mellora and Lion-O pay Tony and Maria a visit. It is clear that they are on Three Kings’ turf. The Three Kings gang are currently in turmoil after their leader, Jonny, was shot in the back 15 times. The killer is still not known.
Tony and Maria explain that they need protection until morning, when they can take the train to New York state. They say they need protection from the Vory because Maria is running away from her father to be with Tony. Maria says that she just slipped her smotrityel, or watcher. She doesn’t believe they can track her.
Tony says he is one of the more respected members of the Three Kings and that he needs to clear up some gang business before he can leave. Tony and Maria say they wish for nothing more than a peaceful life so they can raise a family together.
Amy Steur and her two guards show up at Tony’s apartment building. Lion-O warns Mellora and Mellora bugs out. It doesn’t seem like Amy is threatening violence, so Mellora and Lion-O leave to meet up with the rest of the team.
Scene 4: Tony’s Apartment. After the team agrees on a plan, they return to Tony’s Apartment only to see Amy and her boys leaving. Zer0 recognizes them and realizes they are high ranking members of the Fronts.
Inside Tony explains that the Three Kings were once part of the Fronts and that Amy is trying to recruit them. The team tries to split up Maria and Tony so they can convince Tony that it is in the Three King’s best interest to join the Casquilhos.
Before they can finish, Mike and Andrew, two Three Kings gangers show up at the door carrying a third member, Kev, who has been badly wounded by a gunshot. The gunshot came from Mike who swears that Kev is an undercover Knight Errant cop. Andrew believes Kev was just being harassed by the cops and that he’s a loyal Three Kings member. They bring Kev’s body to Tony so he can figure out what to do.
Olo casts a heal spell on Kev to save him from dying. Tony sees the situation as a sign of things getting out of control with his gang. He immediately gets up to talk to his brothers before things get any worse.
The team makes a last ditch effort to split up Maria and Tony and are successful. Maria agrees to go with Mellora while Tony goes to clear things up with the rest of the Three Kings.
Scene 5: Streets of Aurora Warrens: Three Kings turf. Tony and the team come upon a large gathering in the street. Two gangers roll back and forth in a brawl. Gang markings indicate that everyone present is a member of the Three Kings.
After things settle down, Tony tries to make his peace with his brothers. He says that he’s going to leave them in goods hands with the Casquilho Family. With some help from Olo, he manages to convince the majority of the Three Kings to go along with the plan. A few members don’t like the idea and peacefully leave.
Scene 6: UCAS Train station. The team allows Maria and Tony to gather all their possessions before leaving for the train statin. With the help of Peaches, the Collective escort Tony and Maria to the train station. There, all is quiet until Nikolai and his two men show up.
Nikolai approaches Maria even though she has a glamour spell cast on her. Maria does not play games and tries to stand up to her father.
Olo tries to summon a spirit and the Vory reach for their guns. Felix and Mellora pull their weapons also and start firing. By the time Olo is done summoning an Earth Spirit, the Vory are incapacited and surrender.
Zer0 hacks into train system to allow Tony and Maria on board. Zer0 then instructs the train to leave for New York as scheduled. Olo orders his spirit to guard the couple on the train. Olo then tries his best to heal the two fallen Vory soldiers.
The team takes Nikolai prisoner and leaves the other two for Lone Star to pick up.
Scene 7: Vory Warehouse. After dropping off Nikolai with the Casquilho family, the Collective examine the data on his commlink. They learn that the warehouse holds large amount of Vory weapons and armor as well as crates of aluminum bone lacing kits. The weapons and armor appear to be Russian military though a couple generations old.
Olo scouts the warhouse only to find three workers. Zer0 hacks into the warehouse node and shuts off the camera and lights. Some quick sneaking and quick striking takes out the three workers in the warehouse. The crates and boxes are ransacked and the gear is loaded into Mellora’s van.
Mellora relays the information for the warehouse and the tied up Vory to her Lone Star contact before the team leaves.
The aluminum bone lacing kits are handed over to Tabby Morgan to fence.
