Superbowl Sunday, January 24th, 2072
Scene 1: PCC:CAS Border Checkpoint. Mellora, Lion-O, and Felix carpooled together in Lion-O’s Hyundai Shin-Hyung car. At the border crossing, they were unable to talk their way past the Knight Errant guards and were pulled aside for further inspection.
Knight Errant officers, without explanation, detained Mellora and Lion-O and took them to the Knight Errant station. They allowed Felix to go free. Mellora and Lion-O complied peacefully.
Scene 2: The Aspen Chalet. Missing two members, Olo, Zer0, and Felix pressed on and attended the meeting with Mr. Johnson to receive the mission offer.
During an expensive brunch, A well-dressed Mr. Johnson offered a job of corporate disruption of Rocky Mountain Dynamics. He asked the team to disrupt RMD through harassment, vandalism, and sabotage throughout the upcoming week.
Despite being short two members, Olo convinced Mr. Johnson that they could handle the operation. The team agreed to accept ¥2,000 up front and ¥4,000 upon completion for each member of the team.
Scene 3: Knight Errant Station in CAS. While Lion-O was being interrogated by Police Chief Alice Bujold, Olo pretended to be Lawyer Benny Factor and convinced the reception officer to be allowed to see Mellora (with a little help from Zer0).
While “Benny Factor” was talking to Mellora, Zer0 activated the sprinkler system to distract the guards and “Benny Factor” used that opportunity to knockout Mellora. Knight Errant guards came to Benny’s rescue and helped subdue the unconscious but “threatening” Mellora.
In a second encounter, this time with the attendance of a doctor, Benny mind controled the doctor to convince the guards that Mellora should be transferred to a hospital.
Scene 4: DocWagon Hospital. Olo and Zer0 tracked Mellora’s transfer to a nearby hospital. This time, Olo impersonated a Dr. Akula and Zer0 hacked into the hospital database and edited personnel files to have Dr. Akula be Mellora’s doctor.
While Dr. Akula examined Mellora, Zer0 controlled the medical devices to indicate that Mellora had passed away. Police Chief Alice Bujold made an appearance and ordered the guards to transfer Mellora to the Knight Errant morgue instead of the hospital morgue.
Dr. Akula claimed that Mellora had contracted a virulent mutation of the HM-HVV virus and must be disposed of in the hospital morgue. Dr. Akula managed to convince everyone especially the nurse to stay away from the infected body.
Zer0 intercepted a call to the Center for Disease Control and bought Dr. Akula enough time to “dispose” of Mellora’s body. Olo placed Mellora on a wheelchair and casted a disguise spell on her. He rolled her out of the hospital and they both got away.
Felix spent his time at a sports bar, watching the the Minnesota Vikings defeat the Pittsburg Steelers to win Superbowl CV in a closely contested game for the ages.
Scene 5: RMD Plant. After taking a wait-and-see approach to rescuing Lion-O, the team begins its operation to disrupt the RMD Facility in Bow Mar in the PCC Sector. Zer0 regularly finds lone, unoccupied Knight Errant squad cars to hack into to keep tabs on Lion-O’s whereabouts.
During off-shift hours, Olo uses his magical projection to scout out the RMD plant. He finds that there are no magical defenses and is able to get a picture of the complete layout of the plant. Still, there are at least a dozen guards as well as other maintenance workers.
The team of Olo, Mellora, and Zer0 continue their surveillance throughout the day. They see a cargo truck leave the plant and decide to hijack it.
On northbound Route 121, Mellora and Zer0 follow the RMD truck in Mellora’s van. Zer0 first bricks the driver’s commlink and then hacks into the truck, guiding it to a stop. While Zer0 distracts the truck driver, Mellora sneaks into the cabin and steals the RMD truck.
The team contacts fixer Tabitha Morgan, and asks for her help in fencing the goods inside the RMD truck. Tabby instructs them to hide out in the sewers until she can arrange for a pickup. After a non-eventful 7 hour wait guarding the truck, Tabby arrives with two movers and take the goods. Olo negotiates a 30% take when the goods are fenced.
Inside the large, heavy crates are hundreds of completed electric motors. The retail value of the motors is between 40k and 75k nuyen.
Scene 6: A “free” man once again. Lion-O is released from the Knight Errant station. Lion-O contacts Zer0 to let him know that’s he’s okay. Lion-O carefully crafts his words to give Zer0 the strong impression that the call is being monitored.
Lion-O feels it’s best not to make contact with the rest of the team and sets off on a plan to frame Stooby and the Dogs of War for the kidnapping and murder of Catherine Westmore.
Lion-O arranges a meeting with the Dogs of War at Marcel’s at 7:30pm. During the dinner, he finds it hard to manipulate Stooby because his brother Joeby is also there watching out for his brother.
Under a Mr. Johnson pseudonym, Lion-O asks if the Dogs of War are able to do wetwork missions in a “delicate” fashion. Stooby responds that car bombs are delicate enough. Lion-O does mention that there is a price on JJohnny Ono‘s head which has peaked Stooby’s interest.
Scene 7: Outside the RMD Plant. Trying to infiltrate the plant, the team acts as a surprise inspection crew. The gate guard reports their arrival into the plant and tries to stall the team of Olo, Mellora, and Zer0. The team misinterprets the stalling tactics and aborts the plan.
Shortly after, they return and Olo mind controls the gate guard to come meet them beyond the range of the camera overwatching the gate. Olo has the guard hand his commlink to Zer0. Zer0 hacks into the commlink but finds that it’s not part of the RMD security host. All he can get is a list of employees and a daily delivery schedule for when trucks arrive and depart.
They use the schedule to try to hijack an incoming delivery truck from WTF Extruding. Mellora and Olo get the incoming truck to stop by crashing her bike in front of it. Mellora does a good job of faking a serious injury.
The irate driver confronts the two of them. While, Olo distracts the driver while Mellora pretends to be seriously injured. Felix sneaks into the truck and drives off after Zer0 hacks it.
Zer0 then “steals” Mellora’s bike and rides off. Lion-O drives up in the van to pick up Mellora and Olo to take them to the hospital. They drop off the angry driver at the nearby RMD plant.
Olo casts heal spells on himself and Mellora.
Felix notices that the truck is being followed by a pick up truck registered to Bruno Santino, a member of The Chavez Family. With Zer0’s help, they lose the tail.
The team meets up with Tabitha Morgan again to fence the goods. Inside the truck are coils of copper and berrylium wiring worth 45k nuyen.
Scene 8: RMD Plant. The next day, the team returns to RMD Plant before the first shift starts. Olo casts disguise spells on Zer0 and Felix.
Zer0 infiltrates the plant as a maintenance worker and Felix infiltrates the plant as a security guard. Both are able to easily get past the gate guard.
Zer0 goes to the rigger control room and talks another maintenance worker into leaving him alone inside the room. He then hacks into the system, getting access to the main node.
Felix goes and talks to the receptionist. He seduces her and takes her to the bosses private room.
Zer0 gets Lion-O access to the forklifts in the assembly area and Lion-O causes a lot of physical damage to the machinery in the area. Zer0’s unauthorized presence on the node is detected and alarms are set off. Lion-O jacks out of the matrix. Zer0 also jacks out of the matrix before they can locate him.
Zer0 and Felix try to make their way out of the plant, but are stopped by security. Zer0 gets held up at the last door. Felix is able to get past the guard, but is unable to help Zer0 out. Felix does gain control of the gate to allow the rest of the team in the van to drive in. Olo uses a spell to distract the guards while Zer0 makes and run for it and jumps into the van. The team gets away safely.
