Shadowrun: Montreal

Getting away ain't always free...

from Minor Events perspective

I can only speak from my perspective as I may have been unconscious during some part of the meet afterwards.

It all began after the crushing by Gizmodo of the sneaky, “janitor”, and his partners trying to escape with our paydata. Not on this teams watch. As we drove away to escape two bikers and a van approached from behind and started messing with us. Saber prepared to lay waste to the van but I was at the back of our vehicle and may have took up a bit of his space. Never the less he opened up on a biker on the side. They were flashing strobe lights at us with little effect. Saber started having issues with his gun and started teching out. Shutting off his wi-fi? and smartlink. I think he went silent like I always like to be. Something was still effecting him though and he guessed they may have a Mage messing with us. Gizmo was having problems with his tech as well but he did show it in his driving. He was steady and determined to get away. Snow went on the hunt looking for people and tech on the Matrix. I did my best (not much) to help her find those icons. I felt more helpful than I may have been, but Snow found them and starting working her techno magic.

Quinn, laying back waiting for his shot, got it and fired a burst which sent the biker up in flames! One down. A bike and the van left. It was obvious to me Gizmo was not going to be able to outrun this assault. Saber fired off more rounds and it was only a matter of time before he would have taken the other biker down as well.

The opportunity arrived! Gizmo got ahead of the van again and they moved right up to his bumper. Perfect! I took my chance to bring this chase to a head. I leaped out of the back door right on to the front windshield of the van, punched through the window and grabbed the driver. He was distracted but squirmed loose and attempted to stun me with a baton. This was Sabers chance. He fired into the van and took out what I later found out was the decker who jacked Gizmos gear. He shouldn’t have done that and he paid for it with his life. The other backseat occupant did some mojo and I recognized he was the spell caster. The driver was losing control and this van was soon to crash. I mumbled where the Mage was and rolled into the back seat to force feed him some knucks. He didn’t like that much but really disliked what came next. Saber took his shot and that Mage was dead. I told them they should have left us alone. Right at that time the turned, out of control, right into a building. The crash was severe. Someone, Gizmo? Woke me up with some stim patch. I remember waking up saying, “Yes! They should have left us alone!”

Then there were some bright lights and a distinct buzzing in my ear and…Crash! Whew that Kamikaze packs a punch. All I know from then is Saber called way too early in the morning for me to be coherent. Fortunately, Quinn and Snow can put a face on to meet with our payers. Some Mafia guy says he owes us a favor.

Gizmo and crew agreed to sell off some swag we retrieved from the dudes in the van. Turns out the Mafia guy knew some people who could use the cyberdeck. He netted us some great pay which we agreed to let each other repair any broken gear and then split the rest. Lucky, because tech is not cheap! Turns out this run paid good…

We got a call from our first Fixer in Montreal. He had a doosey of a job up North in the wilderness. Uh, yeah, he offered anything we wanted to drink… I let the Face handle the details…

Waiter! Bring me a double…

Comments

Saber pipes in:

“Almost, chummer. However much I’d like to, I can’t take credit for killing the decker. I wounded one motorcyclist, killed one, wounded the frontseat passenger, and killed the mage. It was the accident that knocked out the decker and both guys in the front seat. I slit their throats after that.

Nice move with that suicide jump onto the van. Looked like something right outta a trid action movie!"

Snow had crushed the decker before the crash. He was in Hot Sim, which means he literally felt the pain of her ice spikes.

Great Summary! Minor Event on Kamikaze is a blast!
