Shadowrun Session Report – The Third Run – Session 03

[This session happened on January 26, 2015.  We started late and things went a bit slow as we (the entire group) were not very focused.  This lasts two more sessions as we do recon and gather information, which tends to leave certain characters with little to do.  That said, all the planning and research means we are very prepared for the run when it happens.]

Player Characters

Void – female human physical adept B&E specialist, a shadow that blends in easily
Murdoc – male elf kilt-wearing street mage, at home with the hobos
Prometheus – male human street samurai, handy with any firearm
The Fin – female human con artist and gambler from India, by way of Russia, posh and elegant
Sin – male human rigger, knows exactly the wrong thing to say and says it

NPC’d Characters

Bookie – male elf alcoholic hacker, favors whiskey with a whiskey chaser
Killroy – male human street samurai, specializes in hand-to-hand combat

Sin spent some time during the afternoon flying a Lockheed Optic-X2 around to check out Cap’n Freddies [sic], where his contact, Kaylee, indicated we could find a Proteus Lamprey available for a large five-fingered discount.  The big sign over the low office read “Boats! Boats! Boats!” and the lot was full of used boats.  Sin got a picture of Freddie and then checked out the stock.  In addition to the Lamprey Sin was looking for, Freddie also had a Vulkan Electronaut in stock!

                                 Cap’n Freddie – You’d buy a boat from this guy, right?

Sin contacted The Fin and let her know there was an Electronaut on the lot and plans were immediately changed.  With an Electronaut, SCUBA gear will not be necessary for the run, nor would water-proofing the package be necessary.  The plan for the run was to get the package and one team member into the minisub and have Sin remote-pilot it around the island while the rest act as a decoy for anyone attempting an intercept.  The plan for stealing the Electronaut would take some thinking.

To get operational data on the various dock facilities on Harbor Island, The Fin and Bookie investigated the marina apartments on the south end of Harbor Island to see if the team could rent or commandeer an apartment for the run.  The Fin went to the leasing office, acting as a corporate scout looking for a corporate apartment.  She got the floorplans and prices, which let the group decide that squatting would be the better way to go, budget-wise.  After the rental office closed, Bookie hacked the rental office’s computer system to get a record of all the leases and what the current occupancy status was on all of the apartments.

Looking at the maps, Prometheus indicated that two of the empty apartments lined up well for observation, one on the 2nd floor and one on the 4th floor.  Sin sent a Fly-Spy to the apartments to check the sighting angles and which neighboring apartments were actively occupied.  The 4th floor apartment’s line-of-sight on the docks was blocked by the West Seattle Bridge, so Prometheus chose the 2nd floor apartment, Apartment 2B, as the best place to set up a camera to observe the rest of Harbor Island.

At Midnight, Prometheus and Void met a couple blocks from the apartments and walked over.  Void led Prometheus over the fence and through gaps in the security camera coverage.  As they are approaching the selected building, Void spots a person in all black climbing an outside wall and breaking into an apartment on the 3rd floor of a different building than their target.  Void and Prometheus stayed hidden until the mystery man (now dubbed “Spiderman”) finished breaking in.  They then quietly passed around the far side of that building and broke into 2B.  Once inside (and after verifying the apartment was empty), they contacted The Fin to report that they were in and what they had seen.  The Fin requested Sin immediately send a drone to see if “Spiderman” was a runner returning home or if something was happening that might draw police attention to the apartments.

In the meantime, Prometheus unpacked the camera and supplies he had brought and set up light housekeeping in the furnished apartment.
