LA's After Action Report : Nine
LA's After Action Report(Nine)

Jan 28, 2075

I was in Miami, on a quiet errand, when I received a message from the Red Queen. She has a favour she needed done.

She needs some specific hardware and data contained therein. She has cooked a ‘mission’ with the Orange Tigertails, to cover the hardware theft. This completely in character for Red Queen. The drag is this facility is a tier three MCT research facility. Mitsuhama Computer Technologies is a the third largest Mega on the planet. They lead in Magical Research, Hardware, Software, Robotics, and Entertainment. They also employ a zero survival rate of intruders philosophy. This means, they use Magic, magical beasts, spiders, drones, and human assets deployed on a lethal footing. They are willing to accept the internal collateral losses such a philosophy would dictate. It also means a no prisoners directive with no interrogation, before a summary execution.

Some reason, as yet unknown reason The Orange Tigertails raised 500,000 CAS to hire a team to attack this site. They can best be described as soft on discipline of convictions but, hard on rhetoric. They are NEO-Luddite in philosophy. The grown up disenfranchised youth from “Miami Beach who were impacted by the matrix crashes, and see the technology mega-corporations as the cause of the problems of the 6th world.”

They want to hire us for 500,000 $CAS to hit the facility and cause several million dollars of damage. Mega vandalism for hire. Unsubtle and appealing to base appetites, for an mythological time before our tools became indistinguishable from magic.

She left these parting thoughs. “You should probably take Mariner along with you – if you feel you must.” and an appointment for “Element Miami International Airport Hotel” at a date and time.

We catch the meeting, with out Mariner, as he missed his connection to Miami. We end up in a very nice AR enhanced meeting room. We get to meet the Red Queen’s new hired help.

‘Elrige’, the gaunt ‘longhaul’ amped frame of a vehicle rigger. He must be transport. Young with a casualness that I find somewhat sloppy.

The Decker is ‘Millie’, Low on interpersonal skills, reminds me of an artist, if it is not related to their art, it must be Algae feedstock. No visible weapons, or visible armor. Not well adjusted, this one.

After , we go do out meet at Wolfgang’s Steakhouse to meet with Clutch. Vertigo leads the talking and we get half the CAS payment in advance. They use Electric bikes, comlinks, some cyberware in enough concentrations to pass for a run of the mill go gang. Maybe their NEO-Luddite shtick is a cover.

I spend the time rigging a fuel and agriculture truck bomb. It was dropped into parking, and we then prepped for a boat ride out to our ticket into the MCT-Mercy Hospital research and development complex.

We get in according to plan. We get to the target clean except for some confusion with one of Millie’s agent in a track drone. The Prize is thirty blades of a complex micro proto-matix node. For those that Know this stuff better then me, that is what it looked like.

After disabling a few techs, triggering the alarm, and extracting all thirty of the quantum hardware blades, we made our way to the extraction point. My bombs were impressive, but the freighter collision was the gem.

Vertigo and Melie brought down a pursuit chopper. I covered the Millie’s Roto-killer drone up to He made it up the coast, and Eldrige stopped for food at a fish and chips place as we wait for our transport for the package.

It’s been a good week off – hanging out in The Islands. With the successful

Meeting with Ascension … new person (Mellie)
– setting up meet with local peeps who want some destruction and mayhem.
– meeting gang at parking lot outside Wolfgang’s Steakhouse – meet with Clutch

LA's After Action Report(Eight)

Jan 10, 2075

We have recovered Mr. Eddie.

We have been paid a portion of the total possible pay out, but that speaks to complexity of the various factions that were in play.

It has been a four months since Chance had to disappear after being the Face for the Ares negotiation. He was very hot, and simply had to drop of the radar.

It appears that Pennance was shot up again, by post soviet expats. We began to work on why, anyone would want to target the place.

After beating the bushes, I ended up at Mr. Eddie’s bar. Apparently Mr. Eddie has been abducted and Dominick his nephew shot up Pennance in some form of misplaced vengeance.

Using the tri-vids I tracked Mr. Eddie to the Pickering international ariport. Saeder-Krupp extra territorial holdings. After working a former Mr. Johnson for information, the parting including the unwilling Mr. Eddie were on a plane out bound to the Caribbean League. Their passports of individuals were a mix of 3 Haitian and 1 Dominican. I also have their plane’s flight path. Miami and then Port-au-Prince.

It be a good time to explain, that the Caribean League is a Kleptocracy or ‘Ruled by theives’. So it is major activities, include agriculture, banking, light manufacturing and counter fitting.

Saeder-Krupp took a wad to look the other way, but as do have a large regional interest in shipping in the League.

We went down with a plan load of two Russian factions, Obsidian, Verigo and I. At customs, people from our “group” were all getting filtered out for secondary assessment. We evaded that, and sweated as we ripped the flight data we needed. Then we left the complex in a picked up rental convertible . I had hoped we would ditch all our “additional” associates, but Obsidian also made it though the confusion. We spent the night in a good hotel.

Obsidian lost all his heavy gear, including his trademark heavy armor.

Next morning we went to scoop our gear shipment.

We were intercepted after our pick up by a tuk-tuk driver. This put us into a meet in VR with the “Baron Samedi”, after some expenses, 3000 Nuyen for information and a very expensive 20,000 Nuyen to get us to and back safely from the island.

I hate being shaken down, and it will cut into my fat, but I needed some local muscle and navigation help.

I called ‘hot tuna’ to make sure that if I needed an extraction I have an out.We had a quiet evening. I was on edge, as my new friend might decide It was easier to come get the rest of out valuables rather then working for the rest of the money on the deal.

Next morning we arrived at our charter to find Mariner and two Different vory factions had taken over the boat we were going to use. Once introductions were made and people were released we made it out and refuelled, and made it with in sight of the island. Vertigo led away a dragon turtle, as we swept into the windward side of the island. We landed, and after rigging a shaped charge on the engine and leaving obsidian with the detonator. Mariner, the captain and I went out to look for Mr. Eddie.

We made contact with the Locals, and after no shooting them. He were led to their stockade surrounded village. Once vertigo, had a chance to impress them with her power, they surrendered Mr. Eddie. Well most of Mr. Eddie, as they mistook his leg for a light lunch. After more restrained displays of force, and more careful talking. We carried Mr. Eddie back to the boat.

Then we shipped back to home port.

The Mr Eddie Saga
"We Leave At The Crack of Dawn"

Case Notes: Mr Eddie flew in and then transferred to a private plane which was scheduled to fly to Port au Prince. After six hours here, he chartered a private plane from Port au Prince and flew to San Juan. Eight hours later, the plane left San Juan for Nassau – then on to Miami and Toronto. Plane to Nassau never landed. Contact lost over the ocean, near the Turks and Caicos Islands.

Over previous few years, Mr Eddie has taken five separate flights down. He has always flown from Toronto, Miami, San Juan and back. The deviation to Port au Prince is this time around. Only time he has done this.

Gear coming into Odyssey Aviation building – where gear is arriving. "Influenced: guard to help us pick up package shipped from Square Peacock.

Augustine = female tuk-tuk driver. Had the misfortune of her pants igniting while driving on W Bay St.
Works for Baron Samedi. LA decks in to meet the Baron.

2000 Nuyen – tracking flight. Not taken down by Baron’s affiliates. His guess, taken down over either Maya Guana or Crooked Island.

1000 Nuyen – who operates out of these islands? Bands of indigenous cannibals. Very active in magical reagents. No technology on the islands. Affected the inhabitants.

20,000 Nuyen – to get us to and back safely from the islands, with enough guides to “keep us safe”. 10K up front, 10K when we get back safely.


One good thing about the Caribbean, it’s a lot warmer than home in January. And I’m really “living it up” – we checked into a hoity-toity resort. Then got to walk the beach. Sure, we’re ducking and weaving from the corp guys … but who’s gonna look for Runners in the middle of the tourists? We usually hide out on the seedy side of town.

Glad we made a local connection. And I’m so relieved that we aren’t dealing with corp guys. Didn’t get to meet Baron Samedi myself – but I get the feeling from LA that he’s on the same side of “the corp law” as we are. Nice to deal with a real person for a change. Sure, he’s got his own agenda; so do we. It’s that type of trust/mistrust amongst pirates … honour among thieves type of thing.

Funny, but LA is the one being more paranoid right now. You would think he would be a little more relaxed and respectful, dealing with another person who operates outside the corp world. It’s very surreal actually. Part of me will be glad to get back to the safety of The Sprawl, where I know the players and how to watch for the people hunting me. Isn’t that strange … to prefer the hunting grounds that I know to the “safer” unknown locations that are, well, unknown.

So, we sail in the morning to try and find Mr Eddie. Hoping he’s alive and we can get both him and ourselves out alive. He’ll really owe us after this one … but on the other hand, I think I need to find me a new fixer. It will be good to have a few, in case one goes missing again.

As the sun sets, Oblivion and Vertigo sit on the balcony, eating Lobster Thermidor and drinking champagne.

The Mr Eddie Saga
The Meet

Case notes: Aztec security has area locked down of the meet that The Idiot Nephew has arranged. When we get there, not only is Dominik there, but the following people arrive:

1. Don Fabrizio
2. Black Tuna gang: Roman Austin (caucasian orc) plus two gangers
3. female corp johnson … completely unfamiliar … from Aztec
4. Zoya Laskutina (from Russian mafia group)
5. S-K Johnson from Ace of Clubs
6. Mr. Maureau (Miami job)
7. Bulian Yasneyev (another Russian mafia gang)

Finally the nephew speaks: Mr. Eddie kidnapped – from transportation of “product”, owned by Black Tuna gang.

What do we know?
Mr. Eddie has been taken by people unknown in Caribbean league, associated with BT gang. We do know that Mr Eddie has ties with both corps, Fabrizio family, Aztec, and S-K. Need to send gang down to investigate, and extricate Mr. Eddie.
Advised to take Maureau’s man with us (Oblivion)

100K Nuyen each – plus 100K Nuyen collective bonus for safe return of Mr Eddie
half payment upfront

Yasneyev family has opened assets for our use to acquire and use them
(access to high grade weaponry etc)
S-K will be footing bill, but unable to help us through customs in Nassau

Catch:- Will not be going alone. Corps and families want own insurances. Both Russian families are sending squads of their own. They will be operating independent of us, but can contact for back-up.

side job from I N: extra 50K certified Nuyen to retrieve the narcotics shipment (trance)


Oleski Budny – contact with one of the family thug groups

Pavlo – other thug group


Wow – as you can tell from the notes above, it was quite an evening.

Now, I know I’m young, and more than a little naive about the runner world, but even I can see that The I N did a really stupid thing. He’s certainly living up to his name.

It’s a relief to know that Mr Eddie got himself nabbed because of some drug thing. I haven’t slept since this thing started. I was SOOO sure it was The corp – that they had somehow found me. At least we weren’t walking straight into a trap that way.

Now – what we will face once we reach the Caribbean, who knows. I N might as well have taken out a full-page colour advert, and maybe even got a few billboards, to let everyone who might be interested know we were on our way. I have no idea what he was thinking – and I certainly wouldn’t want to be in his shoes once Mr Eddie gets back and finds out about this evening. I N was so proud of himself, for being able to pull so many important people together. The fall out of this is going to last a long time.

Traveling outside the UCAS. Now that’s something I haven’t done in a long time. It’s really stretching me to go beyond the Sprawl. Chicago was … well Chicago. I don’t even want to think about that. But THIS? Flying on a commercial airline? Going through customs? I hope I can keep it together.

Breath, darling, breath. You’ll be alright.

So, here I sit on the plane, with LA. Hope Binky will be able to join us soon. Guess this is where I find out if I can trust LA with my life. Bink seems to trust him.

Think I’ll just close my eyes and try and get a little rest. Things never go smoothly for us – and I’ll need to be able to focus to work the magic once we land.

Shot Up Again!
What happened while Chance was away

It has been a few months since Chance had to disappear. And He’s Back ! !

I would be lying if I said I was surprised by the fact that Pennance was the site of a gun fight. We’ve had a few of them ourselves there. But, to have people come looking for Binky with guns blazing does not make me happy. Now that he’s back, we want to find out who was behind the destruction.

Mr Eddie’s idiot nephew was the one who shot up the bar, thinking Chance was behind the disappearance of Mr. Eddie. Mr. Eddie was abducted from his bar, during a shoot up. LA go

Saeder-Krupp rented the car that took Mr. Eddie from his bar (as per security footage from Mr. Eddie’s bar). It appears he was being compelled to get into the car.

Private charter plane, landed two days ago, rented car and paid cash (enough to make SK look the other way). Last port of call for the plain was Miami, before that Port-au-Prince. LA obtained copies of passports of individuals (3 Haitian, 1 Dominican). Mr. Eddie boarded the plan with these individuals when the were leaving the SK airport.

Chance, in six inch pink spike heels, matching mini skirt and frilly white blouse, saunters into Mr. Eddie’s Bar. I’m in some type of skimpy leather outfit that Chance has dressed me up in. Now, we just need to see if the Idiot Nephew is willing to pony up the money to cover our time.

Wow, when Mr Eddie said his nephew was useless, he was being kind. He thinks our suggestion to hire a group of runners to go after Mr. Eddie is a good idea – and he’s going to go through his Uncle’s contacts to find a group.

Sigh!!!

What Corp is behind this? And, since Mr. Eddie is a fixer, I’m sure they are trying to find a group of runners.

Are they catching up with me?

It has been a while.

“Can we trust Trind?”

“A Client is not necessarily a friend.”

The short answer is No.

Trind may be on the up and up, but, probably not.

We know Trind is relatively recognized inside of Ares, as he has visibility on the ‘restricted’ Chicago research.

He also has enough clout within Ares to stop the interrogation of LA by Knight Errand.

He also can draw liberally on Ares Personnel, and material. As evidenced, by the submarine, the armor, and even the fire team he sent in with us to Chicago.

LA thinks Trind is out for Trind.

We see that in Trind, went outside the regular ‘channels’ and ‘Mr. Johnson(s)’ to set up his chicago mission.

We see that, with Trind as he is running an opp that may not be completely aligned with Ares or ‘Damien Knight™’. Litteraly an extraction by part of Ares, of another part’s personnel.

We see that with Trind, being somewhat taken aback by our walk out of Chicago, literally had our gear we brought out of ‘reviewed’ and cataloged.

We also saw, part of Ares keeping us under field observation, despite being ‘on a job’ for Trind. This means that Ares, is out keeping an eye on us, and Ares was paying us at the same time

LA has had his ‘mission affects’, subtly gone through very recently, probably by Trind or one of his associates while aboard the submarine.

Having successfully completed the field operation, Trind, the team may have a ‘swimming accident’ with no loss to him, and in all probability a rise in his status Ares as having gotten ‘rid’ of those guys that stole the Ares Shipment.

Or, Trind might try to keep the team around as his ‘pet’ shadowrunners. This is also not a desirable outcome, as LA values dangerous freedom over being in safe serfdom.

The principle expression of this ideal, is he reserves right to choose who he works for.

And so the show goes.

On the trip home about three days in, Trind Calls us into the ward room.

“There are not that many suitcases, or four star hotel on a submarine.”

This is his opening line, and it was not promissig.

when, we land. Passcode to an abanoned in salut st marie.
