Dozer recieves a message that a corper he and Alyse helped out a while back is looking for help solving a problem. Accepting the job to retrieve a stolen pocsec, the pair discover there's more to the robbery than had first appeared, leading to a showdown in a motel.

«Plot» Dozer says, "Alyse gets a text from Dozer «Remember that guy we rescued a few weeks back? Seems like he might have a job for us if you're interested. Can we meet?"»"

«Plot» Alyse will text back «No harm in hearing him out I guess, where and when?»

«Horse's place in the Sioux Sector, whenever you can get there.» Dozer texts back.

Alyse will respond that she will be there in half an hour or so and drive out.

Dozer will be waiting for her outside when she arrives, a courier packet in his hands. "Heya Doc. Horse cleared out for a while so we can use his office, it's secure. No meet it seems, just this."

Alyse gives a nod as she steps out of her car, locking up and stepping out with a noticable lack of the dog that had been following her around as of late. "Odd…this the normal sort of thing for him?" she asks lightly while adjusting the strap of her medic bag.

"For Horse?" Dozer asks. "Not really no. Guy called him, said he had some work for the people that pulled him out the forest. Was quite happy not noing who we are, just asked Horse to get this to us."

Alyse nods slowly, waiting to see what 'this' is. Absently lowering her sunglasses over her eyes she adjusts her gloves and tilts her head to the side.

Dozer heads inside to Horse's office, which is a mixture of styles between native Sioux and military. Setting the packet down on Horse's desk, "You might want to wait there 'til I've opened this. This is weird enough to make me slightly paranoid."

Alyse frowns but nods none the less, stepping around the corner while Dozer does his thing. Hell of a reward for the rescue if it were a bomb after all.

Dozer nods, putting his body between Alyse and the desk before opening the packet and pulling out the contents, a slim line metal case locked with an electronic keypad. Tapping in the code Horse had given him, he relaxed once the case opened and he could set what was inside. "Okay, we're good. Seems our 'friend' is even more paranoid than I am. There's an incendiary device here but it's not meant for us." he says as he lays out the cases content's on the desk. A chip player, some kind of small electronic device, a disposable cellphone and a stack of scrip.

The frown lessens, but doesn't vanish. Stepping around the corner Alyse crosses her arms. Incendiary device doesn't sound like a real great greeting. Still a chip player? "Huh…that's sort of old-school."

Dozer nods. "Can't say I'm not intrigued though. Wanna fire it up while I get rid of this thing?"

Giving a little shrug of her shoulders before fishing out her pocsec, taking the chip and inserting it. Time to see what might be waiting within…

The chip contains video files, one of which begins to play once the chip is inserted. A somewhat familiar face fills the pocsec's screen, looking considerably healthier than when Alyse and Dozer had found him in the forest. "I realise this is a little unorthodox but I hope you'll take the time to listen to my proposal anyway. I have a problem that needs resolving, something I'd prefer not to go through my normal channel as this may require more finesse than a simple blunt instrument approach. You've already proven that you're both discrete and capable of finding people so hopefully this is something you'll be able to handle. Earlier today, one of our employees was murdered, in a Stuffershack robbery of all things. While this is obviously tragic, my more immediate concern is that the remote wipe protocols triggered by his death appear to have failed.

Blinking at the message Alyse makes to lean against the desk while her pocsec plays, listening in. Already her mind is guessing what might come next. Cyberbrains, ware recovery, anything requiring remote wipe tends to be big fish stuff.

"As such, I need his pocsec retrieved. It's highly unlikely there is anything of concern on it but I get paid to deal in certainties, not unlikelys You'll find surveillance cam footage of the robbery on this chip, what I need is for you to find the thieves, recover the pocsec and attach this device.." he holds up a gizmo identical to the one that's now on the desk ".. to it. That's it, hopefully nothing too difficult." The man on the screen pauses briefly before continuing. "Should you be amenable, text your acceptance to the number you'll find on the phone I included. If I do not hear from you by .." he quotes a time that's 37 minutes from the current time ".. that number will go inactive and I'll take alternative measures."

Assuming Dozer returns, she'll share as much with him, but Alyse moves to text back her affirmative regardless. Of course there's the question of payment, but first and foremost she's mostly up for the job as discovered. Idly the thought does cross her mind of messaging Argos to help her out in locating the thing, but that assumes it's connected to something he could trace or that it could be accessed remotely.

Dozer does indeed return, having gotten rid of the case and it's attached device. After listening to Alyse and seeing her pick up the phone he says "Should we watch the other footage first? Find out exactly who's robbing Stuffershacks these days?"

The elf doctor nods while setting her pocsec down where both of them may watch it. "Sounds like a good start. Last time I walked in on a bunch of Stuffershack robbers, I got machine-gunned half to death." Shaking her head at the memory Alyse queues up the video to see what happens.

The video is surprisingly good quality, although without audio, and starts with a man in a suit heading into the store. He looks a little out of place in a Stuffershack but is clearly familiar with the place, exchanging a greeting with the clerk before moving on out of camera range. Shortly after, two men in gang colors enter the store and pull guns, one a pistol, the other a shortbarreled shotgun, on the clerk. The clerk is clearly compliant, filling the robber's pack with smokes and booze while they make impatient motions with their weapons. As he finishes loading the first robber's pack and starts on the second, the suited man comes back into camera view again, carrying what you'd guess to be a selection of unhealthy snacks. Evidently his appearance spooks the robbers as the one with the shotgun turns and fires. There then appears to be a brief argument which ends with the clerk getting shot and the suited man stripped of valuables before the robbers grab the packs and run out of the store.

Alyse watches the exchange with a blank face. The soundlessness helps, but the reality is the woman has seen plenty of senseless violence since coming to this city. The fact those once naievity-filled blue eyes now watch with cool detachment probably isn't a good thing, but that's something to think about another day. "Well, Gang colors. That's a start?"

Dozer nods. "I'm game if you are."

Alyse gives a nod in agreement and tucks the phone back in her pocket. "I might leave the porche behind."

«Plot» Dozer says, "Ok, nothing on criminal orgs, obviously. No rumors either but it may be too soon for those to have spread very far."

Dozer chuckles. "Probably a good idea. You recognise those colors?"

Alyse hmms, shaking her head. "Maybe…at least we can rule out the troll-only gangs, right?" she laughs.

"Right. Did you text the guy already?" Dozer asks.

Alyse nods her head, gesturing to her phone. "Yeah, pretty much after seeing the first bit."

Alyse chews her bottom lip in thought a moment before sighing and pushing off the desk. "If we've got nothing, next best bet is to see the Stuffer Shack and see if I can't work a little mojo."

"That thing you did last time? Psychosomething?" Dozer says.

The elf woman grins, nodding her head. "Yeah, the 'Psychoma-something'"

Sometime later, Dozer and Alyse arrive in neigbourhood of the StufferShack where the robbery took place. Surverying it from a safe distance, it appears to be free of cops and other hinderances.

"Clearly not exactly a priority on the Star or 'KE' list," Alyse says offhandedly as she steps out of her car, locking up and adjusting her jacket before looking to to Dozer and gesturing for him to follow her. "Perhaps we will see something they did not?"

Dozer nods as he follows Alyse. "It's a little curious, certainly, but the 'Star does seem to jump straight from 'not our problem to full riot gear when gangs are involved." he says, sounding thoughtful.

Alyse gives a shrug as she pushes in the door, tucking her glasses down while looking over the shop and the setting, but playing the role of the browsing customer until she can get a good impression. "All things start a mystery till you work them out."

Dozer chuckles as he follows Alyse inside. "I'll get the NERPs, won't be long." he says, before heading deeper into store. The new clerk looks a little nervous but that's understandable given what happened earlier in the day, watching Dozer as he disappears between the aisles. The store itself has been remarkable well cleaned up, there's no obvious sign that people died here recently but Alyse will notice an empty spot where a display stand has been removed. Alyse will remember seeing the corper's body collapsing on it post gunshot which likely explains it's absence.

Alyse gives a little chuckle, but none the less turns her gaze over the setting, reaching out with her magic while her more mundane senses pick up the subtle and less-suble differences between the now and the video from before. She offers the clerk a friendly enough smile, but he's not the center of her search just yet.

«Plot» Dozer says, "Alyse finds herself briefly reliving the moment of the shooting, watching from the point where she's standing. It plays out much as they saw on the video clip but with flashes of emotion from the 4 people involved. The clerk's fear is palapable and colors everything else but she picks up a sense of recognition from the suited man, followed by betrayal, the clinical detachment of the gunman and the amusement of his colleague."

Alyse gives a little hiss at the view that graces her senses, shaking her head before crossing her arms. "Well…they knew him…"

"Huh?" Dozer says, coming back to the counter with a couple of NERPs, which he then pays for.

Alyse shrugs, shaking her head and idly reaches for her phone, moving off to browse while she sends off a message to Dozer's phone. «Killers knew the suit guy. May not have been so random»

«Plot» Dozer says, "Putting two and two together, Alyse realises that if the robbers knew the guy they shot, they may have known about the remote wipe on the pocsec. Maybe they jammed it somehow?"

"I'll wait for you outside." Dozer says, heading out pulling out his phone. «Interesting. Get anything we can use to find them?»

Alyse spends a little more time browsing before she makes a small purchase, a good old soy bar that's probably over priced at the 10 nuyen she drops for it. Walking out and tucking her phone in her pocket she continues. "So if they knew it was him, then they knew what they wanted. They could have stopped the auto-wipe. We need a means of tracking them… We need to know more about this guy who was hit."

Dozer nods, looking thoughtful. "Do we contact our employer and let him know what we've found out or try something else?" he asks.

Alyse nods. "Seems the best bet. If we try to find them via the data itself, it may be too late."

"Ok, you still got the phone he sent us?" Dozer says, looking around to check they are out of range of any cameras before opening up one of the NERPs and offering the other to Alyse. "We might as well hang here 'til he gets back to us."

Alyse waves off the NERPS, after seeing what it does to a certain Dwarf, she stays away from the stuff. Taking the phone she'll message the contact with this new development. «Guy was targeted specifically. Info may be comprimised.»

A brief message comes back almost immediately. «You're certain of that?»

Alyse responds «Entirely.»

There is a short delay this time before a message comes back. «That complicates things. I have new instuctions for you. Forget the device I sent, I need that pocsec back intact. There will be a bonus for you if you can retrieve it yourselves, if not, get me a location and I can have a team there in 15 minutes.»

Alyse will text back. «If not intact, is destruction an acceptable second option? Does the device have a means of tracking it?»

This time the response is fairly swift once again. «The memory core must remain intact, the unit itself is less important. It is fitted with a tracker but range is minimal, 100 meters max, so I didn't consider it a viable option for locating it.»

Alyse chews her lip in thought before messaging back. «Pocsecs are phone, do you have the number for it? Device number and such?»

Dozer waits patiently, occassionally glancing at Alyse. He hides a smile at her lip chewing, turning away just before the next message comes in. «They will be on file here, I can get them. I should point out our remote wipe protocols use the same identifiers.»

Alyse looks to dozer, tilting her head to the side. "Have a look round back would you, see if the rack the guy died on was thrown out or something?"

Dozer gives Alyse a questioning look but then just nods. "Your comm on?"

Alyse nods her head, still waiting with her phone.

Dozer heads off, checking for any cameras that might spot him. Once he's out of sight, Alyse gets another text, with the phone number, serial number and other details she'd asked for.

Commlink-Digger> Dozer says, "Yeah, it's here, kind of a mess. I can't get to it though, they've got a camera out here. If you need me to take a closer look, you'll need to distract the clerk or come work some mojo."

Commlink-Witch-Doctor> Alyse says, "Come on back, we'll do the mojo."

Dozer comes back a minute or two later. "I can see why they threw it out. Even if they could clean it up, I doubt they could ever get it straight again."

The doctor nods before giving a smile. "Fortunately we don't need it to look pretty," she says before closing her eyes a moment. Idealy when she reopens them, her form will be invisible after all.

«Plot» Alyse says, "Alright, what's the wall look like?"

«Plot» Dozer says, "It's a basic brick wall, 7-8ft high, but topped with razor wire."

«Plot» Dozer says, "There's a security camera mounted above the rear door to the stuffer shack that covers the area but is pointed away from the alley, towards a delivery gate on the opposite side."

Invisible and silent Alyse spots the wall and simply wills herself upwards and over. Perhaps this was why so many mages are unfit! Regardless the mage floats over efforlessly and sets herseld down beside the rack to look it over.

The rack is badly buckled from the weight of the corper, covered in a mix of dried blood and foodstuffs. One thing of interest that Alyse notes, however, is what appears to a couple of pieces of shot from the shotgun blast, embedded in the rack.

It's something to go on. Reaching into her medic-bag Alyse raids her supplies of medical gear for a good old rubber gloves before begining to fish out what pieces she can. Maybe mojo will allow her to trace, maybe her gunsmith contact, but better to have it then not.

It's a little fiddly, but being imvisible there's no worries about being seen so Alyse is able to get the shot out of the rack without too much trouble. It's clear once she gets them in her hands that these particular pieces didn't hit the corper, there's no blood or other contamination on them.

One little sterile bag later and Alyse has a few pieces of shot to examine or pass on. Tucking it into her jacket she makes to stand up and return to dozer, chewing her bottom lip in thought. She'll get rid of those gloves in just a moment.

Commlink-Witch-Doctor> Alyse says, "Head back to the care, I'll get there in a moment."

Commlink-Digger> Dozer says, "On my way."

Appearing suddenly and simply next to her car, Alyse casually tugs off her gloves and tosses them in the trash, balled up so as not to show the blood. "Give me a moment, we might need a little hand on this…" she says while fishing for her phone to shoot Angel a text message. Taking ahold of one of the unstained pieces of shot she closes her eyes to see what she might glean.

«Plot» Alyse texts Angel on her Argos-secured line. «Got a little work. Missing info taken from someone gunned down. Was made to look random. Tell you more when I get home»

Dozer nods, then recognising that eye-closed look waits patiently while Alyse does her thing. Alyse, meanwhile, is bombarded with a series of images, seemingly unconnected as they flash through her mind. One is the shooter himself, then a fairly distinctive motel sign, a stream of what looks like financial data on a computer screen, a pale, scrawny looking youth tied to a chair and then lastly the second gunman from the robbery standing with a dark-haired woman in a black trenchcoat.

«OOC» Alyse says, "Anything I can see that was recognizable. Megacorp politics or criminal orgs?"

«Plot» Dozer says, "The one thing that stands out is that judging by the background to the images, both the tied up youth and the couple are in the same place."

Taking some time to process the visions the elf woman sits herself in the passenger seat of her car. She'll let Dozer drive, directing him towards the clinic where Angel should await, sending Luna ahead to describe the visions that Alyse had just witnessed with the message 'search for the sign'.

«Plot» Dozer says, "Computers roll from Angel please"

«OOC» Dozer says, "Ok, with 2, you'll have the info by the time Alyse and Dozer arrive at Deerfield."

Despite some of the mods Angel has, she's far, far from a decker. At the least she knows how to operate a computer and do a little searching. The text warning and Luna's description and task gives the doctor enough time to dig for pertinent information on the motel sign. Hopefully it's enough. Dozer and Alyse will find her still poking around for information when they get there.

@em The information Angel is able to retrieve is both useful and possibly frustrating at the same time. She's able to find a match to the sign in question but unfortunately, it belongs to a small chain of motels, all using identical signs. There's nothing to indicate which of the motels in question the sign that Alyse saw belongs to.

The information Angel is able to retrieve is both useful and possibly frustrating at the same time. She's able to find a match to the sign in question but unfortunately, it belongs to a small chain of motels, all using identical signs. There's nothing to indicate which of the motels in question the sign that Alyse saw belongs to.

Seemingly talking to no-one as she steps through the door Alyse runs her hands over the side of the archway past the deceptively ornamental door at the front of the clinic leading to the rather luxurious lounge inside. "He's fine for today," she speaks to thin air while bringing Dozer inside. Headed for the computers Alyse goes to find Angel, calling out from the doorway. "Angel?"

Dozer loiters in the entryway while Alyse heads off. He's hung around enough magic types recently to realise what Alyse spoke to but not knowing what it's instructions might be he's not going to take any chances.

Angel isn't hard to find. There's a computer console in her room that she uses for business and pleasure alike. "In here, love," the blonde calls out to her pointy-eared roomie. "Though I've got good news and bad news…." she says with a sigh. "I found the sign, but there's more than one. We'll need to narrow it down… do you have any more information on the area, perhaps?"

"I had a few glimpses," Alyse says slowly as she comes into the room where Angel sits, giving the other woman a friendly hug and then leaning over her shoulder. "How many places do we have to choose from? Any pictures to check out that might narrow it down? Maybe I can recognize something else I saw…" The elf frowns as she glances over her shoulder. Never a Decker home when you need one!

There's half a dozen different motels in the chain, Alyse is able to narrow it down to two that are the most likely. Unfortunately, they are on different sides of the metroplex, quite some distance apart.

"There…or maybe there," Alyse frowns, narrowing things down to one of two places. Looking back over her shoulder the elf glances to Dozer before looking back to Angel. Maybe her friend Max can help with the info on the motel and the pocsec itself.

"Let me see if Max can help, love…" Angel says with a small frown and then purses her lips. "if he's online…" the doctor adds, perusing an instant message service for a certain individual. The window pops up, belonging to a certain eccentric individual that goes by the name of 'Max Headroom.' "…never a stranger man that I've met but he's got a finger on the pulse of the 'trix…" then she gives Alyse a lopsided smile. "Only sometimes it's his thumb." A little doctor humor.

Alyse chuckles, but waits to hear what they might learn from mysterious Max.

Perhaps unsurprisingly, Max is online, he is a decker after all. After taking the relevant info from Angel, including the details supplied to Alyse by their employer he gets to work, coming back to Angel surprisingly quickly.

«There are a few tricks to locate a pocsec that's off the grid, things the corpers don't always know. I won't bore ya with the details 'cause I think we might be in a hurry here. Your pocsecs off the grid right enough, but someone beat me to one of those tricks I mentioned, the thing is sending out a decker SOS right now.»

Angel blinks, asking for a little bit more elaboration on the whole 'decker SOS' dealie. She looks to Alyse for her thoughts on the matter as well, but does take extra care thanking Max for his assistance and being very prompt about it.

Alyse considers for a moment, looking to Angel. "If every decker out there can track it, we might want to ask Max how to shut it off when we get our hands on it, but first we'll need to track it down. Has he got a location?"

«I'd guess one of my fellow 'trix hounds has got himself in some trouble he can't get out of. Meat trouble, that is. I've got a location for ya but it's not very precise. Best I can do is a two block area.»

"Two block area," Angel replies. Then she forwards the two locations Alyse had narrowed down to Max, just to double-check and see if one of those motels is near that area. "I'll ask him how to shut it off, yes, just in case…" the doctor says quietly. She sounds a little grim and distracted as she types, looking over her shoulder at the elf.

The location provided by Max does indeed include one of the two motels Alyse had shortlisted, out on the outskirts of the CAS sector.

Alyse nods, giving Angel a little kiss on the cheek. "Thanks a million. We'll get moving, if Max comes back in with a way to kill the SOS shoot us a message." she says to the blonde human before moving past Dozer towards the staircase. "I'll meet you outside, just let me retrive something. With that she goes to fetch a few vital pieces of equipment.

Dozer mods, offering his hand to Alyse's friend before heading back out to the car, doing a quick inventory of his own gear while he waits.

Returning with a duffle bag of gear Alyse moves to the Porche once more, stuffing it in the back. She herself is now wearing a long-coat clearly intended to hide the ruth poncho she's got beneath. "There's a set of security armor in there that might fit you and another handgun if you want it."

"Lets get the lay of the land first." Dozer says, taking a quick look in the duffle. "It might get us in more trouble than it's worth. Still, if you could swing by my place first, picking up a little extra ordinance won't hurt."

Alyse gives a chuckle at that as she revs up the engine and the porche sets off. The woman takes the car in the direction, but runs her hand over her necklace as she speaks to yet another invisible friend while they head to towards Dozer's home. "Luna, go on ahead and have a look at the area for me, let me see what we are going to expect."

After Alyse pulls up at Mountain Hills, Dozer heads into his apartment to pick up whatever it is he feels he needs. While Alyse is waiting for him, Luna makes contact. "Mistress, I found the woman you saw, she was getting food, a lot more than for just 1 person. I think she's awakened but there's an elemental guarding her, I couldn't get close enough to be sure."

Alyse doesn't have to speak aloud to speak with her familier, closing her eyes. «Very good, show me Luna…» she says and peers through Luna's senses, watching the vision for herself as they share their thoughts.

«Plot» Alyse says, "Will Alyse be able to see more, or has Luna seen everything that she could have seen from where she went."

«Plot» Dozer says, "Alyse won't be able to see any more than Luna did without exposing herself to the elemental or anything else lurking astrally."

Commlink-Witch-Doctor> Alyse says, "Luna has gotten back to me. There's a mage and possibly an elemental about."

«Plot» Alyse says, "Could she tell how strong it is?"

«Plot» Dozer says, "Force 5 fire elemental."

Commlink-Digger> Dozer says, "Great. Sounds like 'quiet' and 'safe' may be mutually exclusive here."

Commlink-Witch-Doctor> Alyse says, "I should be able to defend us from it, but if you want me to go in physically, we may have to be careful for unseen threats."

Commlink-Digger> Dozer says, "Is it something Luna can handle?

Commlink-Witch-Doctor> Alyse says, "Not on her own, but Luna won't be."

Commlink-Digger> Dozer says, "Ok. I'm on my way out. Lets go get a closer look at this place before we start making plans."

True to his word, Dozer soon reappears, carrying a metal case in one hand. Putting the case in the back of the Porsche with Alyse's duffle, he gets back into the passenger seat.

Alyse nodding to Dozer Alyse sets the car into drive and her necklace reappears as Luna returns. "Alright let's see what we can find. I'll park around the block." Even as she speaks Alyse extends her power, focusing the 'shield' of her magic around the pair of them and the spirit alike."

The motel is set on a wide stretch of road with other businesses aimed at travellers arriving in Denver from the South. Apart from the motel itself, there's a tyre fitters, advertising tyres for everything from motorbikes to bigrigs, 2 fast food places, a bar and a burned out building that looks like it was once a store of some kind.

As they pulled up she closes her eyes and focuses her attention to the astral world to see if she can spot the spirit seen earlier and signs of the mage or the others she'd seen about. "Maybe we can narrow it down."

The motel isn't the sort of place to have magical security so anything Alyse spots out if the ordinary is likely to be just that, out of the ordinary. It has a number of rooms, one of which has an awakened male in but clearly not whom Alyse is looking for. She finds what she -is- looking for in one of the larger rooms, a female mage, two heavily cybered types and a second female, young, scared and sporting only headware.

«Plot» Dozer says, "The mage is iniated but not masking, magic 8. The scared young woman has tpyical decker headware, the other two are sams, one leaning more heavily towards bioware than the other."

«Plot» Dozer says, "One wired, one boosted, if she'll recognise it. Both have smartlinks. The boosted guy is the one with more bio."

«Plot» Alyse says, "Also, does the male have any emotional indicators of fear/concern? Given Alyses lucky roll."

«Plot» Dozer says, "There's also two elementals, not one, both force 5."

«Plot» Dozer says, "There are two males, one is feeling mostly impatience and anger, directed at the scared female. The other is feeling boredom and lust, the latter directed at the mage, whom he clearly has feelings for."

Dropping back into her body Alyse offers Dozer an explination of what she's seen, even the affections she'd gleamed. While it might lead to him wondering if she can read his mind it's an issue for another day. "So what do you think, this could have been another runner team doing a wet job, these guys are armed and they probably have our objective." Pausing she looks back towards the rear of her car. "So Ranger-man, what's our best bet? Shock and awe? They're probably not letting this thing out of their sight.

While Alyse had had her eyes closed Dozer collected his case and begun assembling the rifle it contained. On hearing Alyse's report he chuckles briefly. "Well, I did bring both. It's not going to be subtle though, given I don't like the odds much. Sounds like you're going to have to handle those elementals while I lay down the hurt. That decker girl they've got in there isn't going to enjoy it much, regardless of whose side she's on but I'll try not to kill her."

Alyse sighs and moves around the rear to retrive her armor, tugging her jacket and such off till she's down to her FFBA beneath and then starting to change into her armor before she pulls her ruth-cloak on over the top. "Well this could be interesting," Alyse says and retrives the SMG she carries. "I suppose we need to do this quick and hard. Can you cover from out here or do you need to get close?"

"I can cover from here but I'd prefer to toss a couple of grenades through their windows, to be honest. It depends how you want to handle the elementals, I'll need them off my back if I'm going to get close enough for the grenades."

Alyse chuckles and closes her eyes. "I'm going to call in my own elementals to attack, and I'm going to call another and add it's power to my own." While that probably raises questions unless Dozer has seen it before. "When I do so we may need to move fast, since it takes a lot out of me when it's over, but we should be able to hit them extremely hard. What sort of grenades?"

"Concussion. Like I said, I'm going to try not to kill the decker, but she's gonna get hurt. Less likely to set the place on fire too." Dozer replies, slapping a magazine into his now assembled G38.

Alyse nods. "An air elemental could flood the place with gas that might knock them out," she explains before she suddenly gives a grin. "Or I could make myself bulletproof…"

"Bulletproof sounds good to me." Dozer replies, returning the grin. "No telling what they've got in there that might protect them against gas but at least if this goes south, if you're still standing you can drag my sorry ass out of there.

"I'm going to put one of your windows out if I try putting this on in here." Dozer muses, pulling the second set of sec armour out of the duffle.

While Dozer goes to change into his armor, Alyse removes her necklace once more. "Luna, find the drive the cameras the hotel are connected to and ensure it fails." she says simply.

«Plot» Alyse will summon her earth elementals and channel her air greatform.

Now not having to worry about any cameras seeing him, it was much easier for Dozer to into the armor Alyse had supplied. Stepping out of the car, he shrugged off his coat and sidearm, before quickly buckling the sec armor on and reequipping. "We better get moving before some nosy guest sees us." he says, pulling on his balaclava as the final addition.

Alyse nods and steps away from the car, her glasses in her hand as she tugs the hairpins out of her blonde locks and sits them on the seat of the car. They wouldn't survive what's to come otherwise. "Keystone, Old Rock, to me…" she calls and feels the two earth spirits she favors come into being on the astral beside her. "Defend myself and my allies from the spirits and mortals who would harm us" the invisible earth creatures are commanded, but now Alyse steps forwards and away from the car. "Vortex, lets share your power to defeat our enemies" she now calls for her air elemental, opening herself to it's power and letting it's mana and aura merge with her own.

The wind picks up, starting to whip at Alyse blonde locks as the spirit comes to her. There's a little electric tingle to the air itself around them as that breeze seems to localize around Alyse herself and the mages pupils dilate, the only real sign of her channeling. "Alright," she speaks with a voice that seems to carry a little 'something' behind it and slides her glasses into place. "Cover me, lets make this fast."

«Plot» Alyse says, "Alyse is going to use the crazy-speed and movement power of the air greatform to pretty much 'blink' over to the door."

«Plot» Alyse says, "Alyse's quickness is now 6 + (6 +3) x4."

"Roger that." Dozer replies, hefting the rifle, ready to follow Alyse. He's about to say something else but instead breaks into a sprint to try and keep up with the now super-speedy elf.

Commlink-Witch-Doctor> Alyse says, "I have three minutes for this."

Commlink-Digger> Dozer says, "Understood. I'm on your six."

Arriving at the door Alyse lifts her weapon, but she's already seeing the world through the rush of the wind spirit. It's only now that she stops to add one last edge before she steps in.

Commlink-Witch-Doctor> Alyse 's voice sounds awfully calm for someone being shot at. "I think I got their attention"

«Plot» Alyse resists due to the immunity to normal weapons confered by greatform channeling.

The shotgun blast explodes point blank into the mage wearing the armor that by all rights shouldn't completely stop it…and the shot simply bounces off the petite elf woman like it had it the side of a tank. The elf mage grins, her eyes narrowing behind those glasses.

The trenchcoated mage gawps at Alyse in shock for a moment, before her hands erupt in fire, a gout of flame shooting across the motel room in the elf's direction.

The gout of flame heats up the room as it washes around Alyse, twisting in the mini-gale around her form and seeming to warp and suffocate out of existance. That which does make it through only seems to warm and slightly blacken the sturdy armor beneath. So that's how it's going to be.

"Fragging christ." the other human mutters, pulling his pistol in the vain hope it'll do something and firing a burst at Alyse

Yet more rounds to get swept way, slowed in their tumble through the magical aura so much they plink of Alyse's armor like nothing more then a spitball

Magic vs Magic is always a tough battle, that shielding clearly getting in Alyse's way of simply nuking the others with the nastiest spell she can think of. Fortunately magic isn't the doctor's only trick and she falls back on the long overlooked solution mages can use on other mages. She lifts her gun and squeezes the trigger, sending a double burst of bullets into the other spellcaster.

The trenchcoated mage's longcoat is no match for Alyse's fire, the woman going down in a spray of blood. Faced with an apparently invincible mage and his own dead on the floor, Cyber does the sensible thing, shooting out the plate glass window of the motel room, shattering it, then charging through the newly opened space.

Commlink-Digger> Dozer says, "I got that guy. Also.. Boom!"

The remaining Sam's face turns hard as the mage go down, he was the one that had the crush on her. Looking like he wants to throttle the elf with his bare hands, he instead scoops up the SMG, aiming it Alyse. "Now you die, bitch." he snarls, just as Dozer's grenade comes flying in through the now open window. It's a long throw, he was almost 30 meters away when Alyse burst in the door, but he's got the strength to get it there.

The threat ringing in her ears Alyse doesn't even turn her weapon towards the augmented man. Her eyes simply shift and in the visible spectrum nothing passes between them. On the astral however that fiercely glowing aura lashes out from the doctor like an angry living creature to try and burn that already stained essense of the man's life-force.

The two exchange fire, Cyber's shots hitting Dozer for a barely noticably effect while Dozer's taser shots go wild. With no easy cover, it's clear the Ork isn't intending to exchange gunfire for long as he continues to barrel down on the Sam.

With Dozer seeming almost as bulletproof as Alyse, Cyber throws his gun aside, raising his hands in the air.

The decker shows assorted symptoms, most recently being too close to a concussion grenade. Aside from that, she's been beaten, although not badly, and shows signs of having been recently drugged. Nothing a day or two of bed-rest won't fix. She's also still clearly terrified.

Alyse goes about taking out the battery and tucking the phone away after she checks out the decker, offering soft reassurances to the tied woman. When her channelling finally fades the elf woman scrunches up her eyes at the headache behind her eyes that grows, but she's still standing fairly well."

«Plot» Alyse says, "Alyse takes an M stun when her channelling runs out."

Cyber reenters the room, escorted by Dozer. "Those fraggers owe me money." he mutters, deliberately avoiding looking at Alyse. At Dozer's insistence, he unties the decker, all the while telling what he knows, seemingly intent on trading it for his life.

Commlink-Digger> Dozer says, "Let him go or turn him over to our employer? He -is- the one that pulled the trigger in the stuffer shack."

Commlink-Witch-Doctor> Alyse says, "Gift-wrap him."

Dozer chuckles, seemingly at nothing, then as Cyber stands after untieing the decker, hits him with a heavy right to the back of the neck. The sam crumples in a heap on the floor, the decker giving a feeble if heartfelt kick for good measure.

«Plot» Alyse will take a few moments to cover up her astral signature

«Auto-Judge[]» Alyse (#10658) rolls Sorcery vs TN 6 for "Cleaning up.":
3 3 4 5 5 5 10 11 11 = 3 Successes

«Auto-Judge[]» Alyse (#10658) rolls Centering vs TN 2 for "Centering for the cleaning I should have done.":
1 3 3 5 = 3 Successes

While Alyse is cleaning up, the decker finally pipes up. "Oh, hey, if you're not planning on killing me or anything, any chance of a ride? This is seriously the last time I go to a meet in person."

Alyse chuckles, her eyes closed in medition. "Of course, I will be a few minutes, but we'll give you a lift." When the mess is finally cleared she turns her attention to Dozer. "Call the guy, I'll take her out to the car"

Dozer makes the call then comes out of the room with unconscious Cyber over his shoulder. Stopping to retrieve his spent darts, he comms Alyse.

Commlink-Digger> Dozer says, "Open the trunk, we're trading this guy and the pocsec for our pay."

Alyse does give a little chuckle as she moves around to the porche to change back into her street gear and then the pair of them load up a former hostage, a knocked-out street Sammie and an ork man into her little sports car. "I need to get a jeep."

Dozer chuckles in return as he dumps Cyber unceremoniously in the trunk before also getting out of the sec armor and back into something more subtle. "I know what you mean, I plan on getting a truck soon."

Commlink-Digger> Dozer says, "Can you send Luna to trash any other cameras that might be around while we get the frag out of here?"

Commlink-Witch-Doctor> Alyse says, "We'll get on it, Argos or out new friend can clean up the rest."

With the remainder of the cleanup details in hand, the pair head for their meet, dropping the decker off on the way. They are met by a very corporate looking black surburban, although without any corp logos. Two suited gentlemen take their captive and the pocsec, handing over a pair of certified credsticks in return, before getting back in the SUV and driving off whence they came.

One final text comes through just after the SUV has left, saying simple. «Thank you for a job well done.»
