After siding with Mitsuhama in the Seth Dietrich fiasco, the runners went to ground for a while. Their benefactor, Mitsuhama big-wig Yamamoto-San, set them up with a wiz condo in Tacoma. There, they waited, bought some toys, and did some training…
…hoped to give Annie Goldsmith and the Ork Underground time to forget about them.
Work solved all the problems; made the enemies they’d made seem far away. Mitsuhama needed to sabotage the latest comm from Aztechnology, the heavily-hyped AzTro, and an opportunity presented itself. In a job for Yamamoto-San, Shortround and Trixi had the distinct honor of murdering MatrixBook CEO Chadwick Gable with a comm-bomb, even if they didn’t know they were doing it at the time.
What followed were a pair of jobs from Trixi’s runningmates, the Halloweeners. With Phil and Frank, they shot their way out of a drug deal gone sour, and now, they’re working with Vlad, the ‘Weeners’ ace decker. They stole some outsider elvish art for a Senator, and Vlad fit them with microcameras.
The purpose? Well, nuyen, of course, but it’s also going to provide surveillance for part two of the job. From the roof, they’ll enter the Senator’s two-story condo at the top of a skyscraper, using the cameras in the paintings to keep watch over the interior, and sneak inside to find the Senator’s commlink. After that, they link it up with Vlad, and he does… well, something. They don’t know what.
After that, they finish the framing. Plant the novacoke inside the Senator’s vault, which they’ll need to both locate and find a way to open on site. It won’t be easy, but if they manage to sneak their way through the job, the inner vault and its treasures await.
