White Tiger - Snowy Moguls

GM: Posh
Players: BillyBob, Blackheart, Murdock, Posh, Prey
Synopsis: BillyBob has recently managed to capture and interrogate the primary product negotiator of the man who destroyed his chopper and sent him to run the shadows, the drug runner, White Tiger. With the information gained and the setup developed in the previous job (White Tiger – Blizzard Ahead), BillyBob convinces Posh to help him out with this loose end and lift a fancy prize from under his nose – the tiltrotor that has become the segment of his smuggling operation, smuggling drugs hidden in snaptight containers implanted in the cyberlimbs of trolls and orks: bigger cyberlimbs, more novacoke!

After a harrowing fight in which a surprisingly powerful mage felled Posh with a manabolt, causing the loss of an eye, however, the team managed to kill the White Tiger and hold his head of security at gunpoint, leaving them to find a new master and BillyBob to make off with his prize!

He’s going to owe Posh and her crew big for this. ;)
Date: 12/5/2075

«Plot» Posh says, "Everyone okay with giving up reward to BillyBob on this one, and also the 6KP (7 for humans) dealio?"
«Plot» Murdock says, "I consent to both of those."
«Plot» Prey says, "Fine fine."
«Plot» Blackheart says, "hohoho."
«Plot» BillyBob says, "I consent to get all of this cashmoney"
«Plot» Posh says, "It’s not money isn’t it gear? :P"
«Plot» Scurry says, "I’m just here as a cameo."

"Well," says Posh, giving a smile, noticing Prey doing much better now that the magical healing has arrived, and everyone gathered round. "Well, I'd better let you know what I'd found," Posh says. "This TR-55T that BillyBob had told me about had been the primary vehicle that White Tiger had been using to fund his operations. It's a ski-charter aircraft that was used to ferry passengers to and from - who smuggled the drugs through in sealed bodycompartments, or in snap-tight cases sealed in body limbs," she says. "The vehicle itself was clean - just standard photovoltaic covering, of course," she says, with a grin.

"In any case," she says.

"Anyway. The White Tiger's….consilgnere, shall we say, had a rather interesting conversation with me," she says. "Let's just say that he was pathetically grateful to be allowed the chance to live. He's got a number of boltholes, and he wasn't the type to take revenge - not without his killed with 'im anymore," she says. "Anyway. She told me that the White Tiger's resort shuttle company had been filing plans through the airport in Dove Valley from time to time. Anyway, in exchange for his worthless life, let's just say that he gave up both the name of the gal in the ATC's office that he files with, and his buddy on security. And I watched him send them messages that he's going out of town, but that he's got a bonus for them so long as they're willing to take on some new business he vouches for," she says, with a chuckle. "Let's put it this way: he'd have a hard to getting anyone to listen to him now, if he spilled the beans," she says, with a chuckle. "You won't have to look over his shoulder as far as I was concerned. My condition was, well, a dose of laes and a lobotomy. I like redundancy," she says. "So. Here are our tools: we now know where the White Tiger's pad is up in Fort Collins, and we also know how he used to scrub his trips. But we've got to be careful on this one: at one point, to make sure their ownserhip and such weren't being closely looked at, they'd pass through security," she says. "And I don't want our stuff associated with this. So we've got to pass security, too. All of us," she says. "BillyBob…better remove everything from that Doberman you don't want to ditch at the smuggler's haven," she says, with a grin.

BillyBob is standing with a pinch of dip in his lower lip, causing it to bulge slightly, and a spit cup in his right hand. "Remove shit from mah' Doberman? Then it'll be kinda useless," he says and then spits. The juice causes his teeth to appear brownish. "I may as well not bring it. Ya'll think you can git me to tha' plane so I can rig in and get it started up? I'm not much without mah drones."

Murdock ticks as Billybob spits, then looks to Miyo. He chuckles and winks to her, putting up his own hood and facemask as well. "Great minds think alike."
BillyBob grunts. "Hey I ain't smokin' at least."
Blackheart nods her head, "Getting you to a plane will be pretty easy, I can keep you invisible, which will keep you from getting shot at," she explains, then looks to Posh, "What kind of security are we looking at?" she wonders.

Prey keeps one eye open, just sort of sitting, on the outskirts of the group. "Someone please give me the TL:DR version of the plan chica."

BillyBob reaches into his satchel and takes out a small 4 inch bumblebee drone. "I'll have this… hrm… my Doberman's IVIS BattleTac receiver is like 50,000 nuyen! An' that autosoft interpretation system… damn that's pricey as hell. Plus mah advanced drone pilot, smartlinks, ares alpha, Ingram LMG wit' dat smartlink… I think we got enough muscle here 'ta get by without a combat drone layin' down fire. Ya'll look real beefy." Calling a woman beefy maybe isn't the smartest.

Scurry is sitting quietly, one hand resting across his collarbone, holding his cardigan in place. His free hand rests casually atop his crossed legs. He hasn't said a word, but he's giving enough side eye to Billybob to chill even the fiercest of queens.

BillyBob adds, after a good tobacco spit into his styrofoam cup, "An' since I can't really pay fer this run… uh… ya'll know ya have credit wit' me. Tilt-rotor rides or whatever favors ya need." A pause. "Da plan…"

Posh glances over at Prey with a smile. "Well," she says. "It's not a plan so much as a series of wants. Like life," she replies. "We've got to get up to this house up in Fort Collins - I only have an address. But we've got to assume it's past some sort of security gate or something. In any case the pads up there are big enough to have a helopad that holds an eleven-seater like this," she says.

"So let's say we got and acquire the chopper. We lift off, having somehow neutralized the White Tiger and his force of security thugs. Then what? We've got to fly it somewhere so that we can then go from there to your garage. You've got to file a flight plan for that," she says. "As Captain Cletus Van Dame," She says. "Right? And you know the gals in the office for that, too," she says. "So I suppose that's the first thing. You know, BillyBob," she says. "You're really going to have to learn some charm. And that's what I need you and Scurry for," she says. "The three of you are going to have to go into the ATC office and file this return plan," she says. "I’ll buy a van off my buddy Rollo and we’ll just head up there ourselves, and ditch the van,” she says. “You defend yourself with your Doberman at the van, then drive it up after we secure things, load the van on and stuff, and try to just scout for us ahead of time with your bee drone,” she says. “That doberman’s loud, so let us handle the assault. We’re going in quiet.”

She looks around. "So. What are the problems we need to overcome so far, in addition to your little office meeting?"

«Plot» Posh says, "Step 1: Scurry and Miyo drag Billybob through an Etiquette check. :D"

BillyBob nods at Posh's plan. "Yeah da Doberman kin hit speeds of like 100 miles per hour. So I'm sure it kin make it a mile to our smugglin' lady, if she kin get it back o'er da border. I'll have 'ta program in a little command program." A pause. "Let me see… overwatch. I got a bee drone to do some surveillance. An' we got finger wigglers 'ta do astral. We hit 'em hard and fast, I fire up tha' TR-55, ya'll load up and off we go!"

Scurry gives Billybob a once-up once-down. "I'll need to fix this up," He says, gesturing with his free hand to Billybob. "Fashion, makeover, the works."
BillyBob also adds to Blackheart, "Yah dis White Tiger slag thinks he's hot shit, he shot down mah last chopper over Ute lands. Had 'ta walk out with a broke arm. Now he's moved inta' Denver proper. He's gotta die."

«Plot» Posh says, "Well, I guess pose it I guess, as you've got to go meet the contact and file the plan for the 'return trip.' We'll have to go through security on the return leg. (Sprawl Survival Guide page 64, rating 4) And do what your preparations were. That's also a Denver Civil Services roll to create the plan, and the support spells from Scurry and Miyo."

BillyBob is, of course, amenable to a makeover by Scurry, after quickly making the type of international request he used to make for other Denver civil servants like these ATC folks. "Uh when dat's done pile in mah RV, we'll git over there an' make da plan. If anyone asks, my name is CLETUS VAN DAMME, from da CAS. Nawleens. Dat's what muh SIN is sayin. Professional pilot and shiz."

Blackheart listens to the plan and nods her head, "Sounds like a good plan. We should find a spot to park a ways away to give it a good real time peek. Make sure the guy's actually there today." She winces at Billybob's clarification, "Jesus, this dude shot you down? You want us to bodybag him for you?"

"Unless one of you's willing to drive it back, and can take it as well? I suppose I could. But I feel like I should be there to help sell the party wagon," she says…

Posh grins. "His name can't be Walter Scott. His SIN says Cletus Van Damme."

«Plot» Scurry says, "Full soak. Standing."

BillyBob coughs and wiggles his nose as the dust from Scurry's magic tickles it. But he looks much more dapper after the application. The vehicle grease is gone from his fingernails. His teeth look whiter. His dip has been spat completely in his styrofoam cup. His hair is now gelled. "Naw Blackheart, you don't gotta geek White Tiger… unless ya see him. This mission is all about stealin' his whirlybird."

Blackheart nods her head, pleased to know that the assault on Fort Collins will include weapons. She watches as Scurry covers Billybob in glitter and she smiles at the transformation. "Looking sharp, BB," she chuckles at the gelled back hair. Getting up, she fetches her submachineguns, "I'll keep my eyes peeled for anyone in tiger stripes."

Scurry turns to follow, but not before shooting Posh a look with very, very narrowed eyes

Prey creeps one eye open, shifting a little from her lounge in her seat. "Smoke, automatic weapons fire, and keeping heads down."

Murdock chuckles. "yeah,no money to be made if the target is a smoldering pile of slag."

BillyBob hops in the RV and changes, shedding that set of coveralls while giving the RV the command to drive via autonav to Denver civil air. "Uh right, so we do a flight plan." He grabs a dinner jacket and a bolo tie and some slacks and, by the time they pull up to public parking, he's dressed. "C'mon chief, back me up." He swaggers out of the RV and up the steps of the civil air authority, some papers in hand to make it look official.
Scurry blanks Billybob. His sunglasses are down. He has a tablet casually resting in one arm, and his non-expression states that the person Billybob is dealing with is in fact being graded.

Hopping into the RV, Blackheart zipps up her lined coat and makes sure her XSGs are reasonably concealed. Pulling up her scarf for the chilly weather, she settles in for the drive to the airport. She grins as the pair march out towards the offices to file their flight plan.

"Thought you told me it was Black Friday Rule. If it ain't, wake me up when it is over." Prey shrugs her shoulders, before closing her eye again.

Murdock climbs into the van, slipping into a seat to relax back and wait. He lets the others with the silver tongues go into the ofices to get things set up, deciding to just sit back and relax until he has to punch and/or shoot things. He looks to Miyo and offers a hand. "Don't think we've met met. I'm Murdock, Posh's latest adept investment."

Posh enters as well, and grins. "Nothing wrong with making him extra shiny, just make sure he doesn't look like something he can't sustain," she says. "If he's going to be Captain Van Damme," she says, then waggles her finger. "I'm going with Murdock, Prey, and Blackheart, and we're the party guests. So we wouldn't be with the crew," she says, getting it all worked out in her head. "Let me just give you two a bit of the professional look," she says. “We should be at the Dove Valley airport in a few minutes,” she says, thoughtfully.

When BillyBob arrives at the airport office, driving up in the parking lot in his van, and dressed, well…how does an air taxi pilot dress? Well, thanks to Scurry, presentable, decent suit, all himself, and a nice stylish metal mug to spit chaw into, as well as two flight attendants, of course Blackheart and Scurry, to travel with. Got to be believable, after all - but why are they heading up to Fort Collins as the replacement crew to fly a ship back after a sightseent tour of Sioux lands?

«Auto-Judge[]» BillyBob (#10588) rolls Etiquette:

BillyBob goes right into the proper office, as he's got a bit of know-how with Denver civil services, and says, "My name is CLETUS VAN DAMME. I'm the replacement flight crew for this tour tilt-rotor. The previous crew has DIARRHEA. I would like to file a return flight path." He places the paperwork in front of him.

Commlink-Scurry> Scurry sends, « From this point forth, I do the talking. »

The lady there looks left and right. "Settle down sir," she says, dark eyes darting left and right. "Look, all right, you're here to file a damn plan," she says, presenting a tablet for you to operate quickly. "You'll first have to present your SIN information, of course, to register with us. Mr…Janssen mentioned that you were…something of a new hotshot in town. And that this is the last time you'll hear of him," she says, with a smile. "These two will be helping you today?" she says, politely not suggesting that they're 'merely' crew.

BillyBob clears his throat, but does not say anything, letting Scurry do the rest of the chatter as he requested.
Posing as a blonde with heavy makeup, Blackheart adjusts her skirt and hat on the way into the office area. She's wearing her coat, belted up tight with her guns back in the RV, they won't be needed here. She follows along with Scurry and Billybob, doing her best PANAM impression.

The woman takes a momentary long look at Blackheart for a second, as if she can see that there is a disguise, but she seems relatively impressed at the way that BillyBob's demeanor has kept anyone from really wanting to have anyone to do with him. She presents the tablet, which has a credstick slot on the side, and a message that insistently demands you slot before Creating Account.

BillyBob plucks a credstick from his dinner jacket and inserts it. It reads as clear. He takes it back, sliding it back into his jacket pocket with a nod.

«Plot» Posh says, "Well, you got 3 successes at TN 4 filing the return voyage, and so that means you've got the right to land the tiltrotor for contraband/security inspection and SIN checks back at Aurora before moving on to your final destination, the private property of Rocky Mountain Air Taxi."

«Plot» Posh says, "BillyBob, Give me a smuggling routes and smuggling havens roll each to add to your plan for the location of such a haven appropriate for a canyon viewing siteseeing trip, then, as you said."

Anita glances at Blackheart and Scurry indifferently, but a little curiously. "Well, this is the air traffic control," she says a little boredly, as she's just waiting for BillyBob to finish his inputs, for the first plan at least - future are likely to just be submitted on his behalf by her anyway. "Anyway, it was a pleasure," she says. "Move along when you're finished," she says, with a little smirk, looking a little expectantly at Scurry.

BillyBob passes the checks and so it's back to the Bison with the crew. "Fuck yeah," he says as they exit the civil air building with an electronic flight plan registered proper. "Les' git over da border 'ta Fort Collins."

Meanwhile, back at the Bison, Posh gives a quick grin to the others. "Well," she says, to Prey and Murdock. She looks a little taut, perhaps, a little tense, but as the others return, she grins. "In any case, I think we nearly have all the pieces of this puzzle together, now, yes?" she asks. "Our next task is to figure out how we're going there in the first place," she says. "I suppose…let's see. We just drive up and then sneak as far as we can, taking in the Doberman, and sending it back when we either have the whirlygig or it can proceed no further," she says. "BillyBob will have a chance to scout out ahead of time, too," she says, "How's that sound?"

BillyBob piles back into the RV and sits in the driver's seat. "We got a flight plan!" he says triumphantly, and puts a big wad of dip in his lower lip. "Les' go meet Posh's gal!" The massive Bison recreational vehicle uses autonavigation and its drone brain to head for the stash. "Yahoo!"

"If you're offering burners, I think a pair of ingram smartguns would do just fine," Blackheart says, adjusting her hat after knocking it askew on the door while climbing into the RV. She agrees with most of the plan, "And quite a few smoke grenades, I've got some IRs that we can blanket the compound with while we pull out, just in case any of the Tiger's folk feel like firing a rocket at us while we take off."

Murdock smiles to Posh. 'hey, making sure he doesn't get jumped sounds like an important enough job to me. I'm okay with watching over him. Did so for you and Prey, didn't I?"

BillyBob grunts. "All I got personal is a Predator 3. But I think I gots a permit on dis SIN." He opens the doors once he's at the stash and begins loading his drone into the proper van for the border crossing. "Yah keep me alive! I'm yer way outta thar."

Posh gets together a care pack rather quickly at the stash quiet guns, a Beretta 99SC for Murdock and a quartet of : a quartet of Beretta Model 70 SMGs with integral suppressors and with external smartgun 2 packages strapped on, just a few minutes for each. She brings EXEX ammo for the Dobermans, and a new set of rounds. “So we’re dumping guns,” she says. “We don’t want to potentially damage the plane, but we also don’t want to cause too much trouble. So that’s why I’ve brought flechette rounds,” she says. “We can expect heavy live security, but it’s still residential, kinda high end stuff – fortress houses, dudes in suits with shades, that sort of thing. Of course, Prey can go hot, that'll be fine." She thinks. Thoughfully. "Well," she says. So that’s it. A silent assault if we can, to give us the advantage if we get spotted.”

Murdock perks up a bit. 'I'd like a silencer for my machine pistol. That would help a lot."

Blackheart nods her head. "I was thinking Scurry and I could put the gate guards to sleep, then we slip in while the Tiger entertains his guests. One by one, we take down the guards, and then we let Billybob get his just revenge."
BillyBob says "As long as its a muthafuckin bloodbath. I don't want these chumps trackin me down later. He nods. “But I’ll leave the Dobie. I don’t want it to have security troubles if we’re dumping stuffs."

"That'll be a hard hitter with a laser sight, built in silencer. Just remember we're dumping the guns after this one," she says, with a wink. “Now let me call up my buddy Rollo to see if I can’t get us a van for the trip. We’ll be leaving pretty soon.”

Prey opens up an eye, yes, she had apparently been napping again. "Bit out of my places chica, but I can prolly find a place with time. Unless someone else gots a plan."

Posh glances over at Prey. "I mean, I know a place you could pass gear through," she says. "What if some of us crossed through, one of us brought the gear on foot - you, perhaps, Prey, and then we pick you up after crossing through with the van, all good and clean?" she asks.

BillyBob is asked his mother's maiden name, but aside from that, everyone manages to get across, and since nobody's carrying weaponry and the van passes a cursory check, they're waved through after slotting credsticks, able to pick up Prey, then, who manages to sneak through the border on foot, carrying the team's gear.

The journey then, is relatively uneventful around south, to take a winding route out of the CAS sector, diving into a traffic jam to pick the longest time to cross the border into Sioux territory, then take a long, relatively droning route around to Fort Collins, a good overall trip of a hundred miles. So everyone's got a chance to check gear and weapons before they arrive on the outskirts of the city - no need to enter, it seems, as the approach is to one of the many mansions on the outskirts of the resort town. Clearly this is used as a private stopoff for the cover for the drug smuggling operation: somehow, drugs are being brought through the border to this estate.

One thing that you all seem to notice, however, is the odd scale of the big house. Everything looks relatively huge. Even the doorway to the left of the gate - it's all encircled by a big fence, appears to be ten feet tall. It's like everything human-sized and grand, and then is scaled up to the proportionally obscene, fifty percent bigger.

Prey eventually comes back to the group, with guns, and such.

"This guy's architect really put one hundred and fifty percent into this project," Blackheart cracks a corny joke and elbows whoever is sitting next to her. "Hey? Hey? Aw, come on.." She scopes out the setup before assessing the astral plane to see if there are any demons lurking behind the bushes so to speak

Murdock looks to the others. 'This is a place meant for Trolls, I think. Look at the proportions…"

It's relatively easy to park the Superkombi off to the side and approach, with BillyBob left to wait in the van and provide a beedrone scouting. It's open and clear - the house is set back from the gate, and there's a driveway leading up from the main gate. It's a good hundred meters distance - basic security, to provide sight lines.

Blackheart can catch the signal of a pair of signatures up on the roof, as well as a watcher spirit, just waiting, dumbly, over by the front door.

There's also a few more, clearly another two out front, tough looking customers with the expected suits and black shades. Private security with a comfy gig for a drug dealer. They look old but smart - the kind of ideal retirement job for a dhadowrunner, actually, or maybe ex o-crime hangers-on. Of course, there's no way to see through the building, and it's fair to surmize that the wather's triggered to report any astral signature entering the property. Aside from that, well, it's easy to see the vehicle in question. It's to the side of the house, on a big flat helipad, next to a garage that it likely wheels into, parked and quiet. IT's about twenty meters from the house, and there seems to be a camera atop the garage overlooking it, its housing big, tough, and obvious, more armored than concealed. It's the kind of security that just says 'STAY AWAY' but is not quite obvious enough to draw the attention of corrupt copts. The obvious bulges suggest the good old SMGs to match, too - the drug dealer or corp bodyguard's machinegun.

So there's the two out by the door, the two on the roof, and one seated on a chair on a pocsec, clearly detailed to watch over the tiltrotor itself. Security guys, watcher, and a camera - a simple triad, but effective.

«Plot» Posh says, "Recap: BillyBob awaits in the van with a burner 99SC for self defense and he'll drive up the burner van as soon as the all clear is given. Murdock has burner 99SC to help with the assault. Prey has been offered a burner Beretta Model 70 with or without external smartlink-2. Posh and Blackheart each have two of those. All PC guns loaded with Flechette to prevent damage. PCS have a fence between them and the estate, which is guarded entirely by suited trolls and orks with guns, it seems."

Posh widens her eyes. "I've got an idea. Anyone we take out, we bring the bodies with us on the tiltrotor. We then…well, get the smugglers to take care of them for us. At the Haven. Or dump them out in the desert somewhere before getting there. But if nobody's reporting murders here…"

Commlink-Jett> Blackheart sends, « Okay, I see two up on the roof, two by the door, and one up on the hill by the chopper. Once we get going, the watcher's going to alert whatever mage summoned it, I imagine. Think we can drop the four of em in one fell swoop? I might be able to get two with one manaball. »

Commlink-Murdock> Murdock sends, « Should be able to, if we aim well and catch 'em off-guard. Best to be as quick as possible. »

Commlink-Posh> Posh sends, « Might be possible. I don't think it's a mission fail ether if we don't get them right away. Looks like they're suppressed too…judging by the guys on the roof. Up on the roof there's a rifleman with an SM-3 covered by a spotter with a scoped 227-S - seems like these are all suppressed weapons here, likely to prevent attracting attention. Anyway, let me check for break detection and see if I can't make a hole in this fence. »

Posh has to sneak past the sight line of the camera in order to get to a part of the fence with access in outside the camera's line of sight, from which the side of the building can be approached quietly. She does so, and begins to look for a break detection wire.

Posh uses a few lines of long, slim wire to create a few extensions in the break detection wire she discovers, so that it can just rest on the ground simply. Then, she tkes a fes minutes, simply tool lasering a couple of the fence bars to create a way in for everyone.

«All right. Prey and Murdock. You're taking the roof. Blackheart, we're taking the three guys on ground level. Let's do this.»

«Plot» Posh says, "Everyone, make stealth rolls of some sort, or cast an invis spell"

Prey pauses once, then just gives a look to Posh. Then she sighs, and starts moving.

Posh simply tosses Prey her wrist grapple gun, unclipped from her forearm, with a wink. "It'll be quicker with you. You're lighter, skinny."

As Prey and Murdock ascend to the roof of the rather tall, squat mcmansion, they can see about ten meters away, the sniper spotter team, a troll and an ork, relatively big and tough looking. The ork, the one with the SMG out and heavy looking armor, the closest you can get to sec without it being sec, bulky under his suit, likely a sleeping tiger mix and shit, starts to turn in alarm. He doesn't hear much, but the other guy's got his pants almost completely down.

«Plot» Posh says, "Figuratively, not literally."

Blackheart slides her mirror shades on and fades out of view as she slips out of the van. With her weapons at the ready, she lurks across the street, finding a goot spot with some cover where she can get a nice clear shot on the two guards at the gate. «Okay, I'm in position.»

«Auto-Judge[]» Posh (#11342) rolls Initiative with a result of 20.

The two guards there outfront just suddenly seem to drop, their lives stolen by Blackheart as she quickly snuffs them by surprise, a rather cruel end to the situation as the guard who'd spotted her has little chance to react to her presence, leaving them on the brink of death.

Blackheart scowls as she spots one of the guards eyeballing her as she sneaks behind some bushes. "Well hello, there, wage mage," she whispers to herself as she gets the drop on them, firing off an invisible sphere of doom on the pair fo them before they have a chance to draw their weapons. "Bye bye, wage mage," she whipsers. «Gate's clear, third one's all yours»

All is not well, however, as Posh's flechettes simply bounce off the tough guard's armor and he grins, starting to level his SMG at her. «Oh shit. These don't work at all!»

Commlink-Murdock> Murdock sends, « No shit! We needed armor piercers! »

«Plot» Posh says, "Prey, you're up. :)"

«Plot» Posh says, "6 successes. The troll takes L."

«Plot» Posh says, "Sniper has spent all combat pool and 2/3 karma pool."

The troll meanwhile rises to his feet, grinning as he clutches the rifle, cursing as he prepares to defend himself with it, knowing that the weapon's likely sensitive balance is going to be badly disrupted.

None of the remaining guards are able to do much as they start to cover their surprise, but there are shouts of alarm that likely fade somewhat by the time one would reach the next house, over a hedge and 200 meters of rolling artificial hilliness, but there are quickly sounds of movement, thumping heavy steps inside the house.

«Plot» Posh says, "He goes down, unconscious. Pose it up."

The front door where the watcher had ran into bursts open, revealing a heavily armored looking dude with a suppressed assault rifle. He looks a little more serious, but still socially impressive - an armored plated vest worn under a heavy blazer. This one isn't a troll, but he almost might as well be, a hugely muscle-slabbed ork.

He's flanked by another troll with a pink mohawk and the only non ork or troll that you've seen - an angry looking blond man with a scar coming down over his eye, like a tiger's stripe. He's got a little short ponytail and he's wearing a black gi. "You all have fucked with the wrong guy. White Tiger's gonna end you. We heard there might be trouble on this job after my product negotiator disappeared…

The building is actually rather beatufiul in there - open plan, huge couch, lofted, ceiling. Like a massive hunting lodge - probably great to stage a sex comedy or a corporate retreat at. Or, well, host a lot of drug mules and bodyguards in.

The big brutish troll is injured badly now by Prey's hand razors, a painful wound opened up as she rakes past his dermal armor, brutalizing him as he's ganged up - but the subgunner, quick on his feet, is ready with a response!

«Plot» Posh says, "Troll at 4 boxes Phys"

Posh, meanwhile, suddenly sprins forward, aiming at the elite looking guard and trying to focus on delivering another spray of projectiles at the huge threat, covering distance towards him almost maniacally as she opens up.

Apparently enraged at the sight of the woman choosing to charge directly at his employer, the mage suddenly says. 'I'll take one off the table for you, Boss. Wake me up when it's over,' he says, grinning, and then he focuses all his will, all his rage, all his hate, all his power, and fires a brutal manabolt at Posh, dropping her like a puppet with its strings cut, but he looks severely weakened by the effort.

The troll, however, takes a mortal wound and goes down badly, bleeding as he's all slashed up from Prey's tender ministrations, leaving just the ork submachinegunner with her and Murdock up on the roof.

Murdock looks to the orc and moves to intercept the orc in a melee!

The huge Elite bodyguard continues to toe at Posh, who’s just on the edge. Meanwhile, the Ork that Murdock smacks seems rather badly affended, stumbling and flopping weakly as he fights against the effect of the shock weapon on his body, looking quite wobbly.

«Plot» Posh says, "Blackheart, action? Elite holds action."

«Plot» Posh says, "Nope. He's in the house, although you can see him. He shot through the doorway. The elite, who's pointing the gun at Posh's face, is a little bit outside the doors. The mage, weakened, is just behind the elite, kind of right at the doorway."

«Plot» Posh says, "The elite had like burst the double doors open, revealing the mage backing him up, and the White Tiger with partial cover, kinda behind a couch, see?"

The elite had sprinted out onto the lawn where Posh was, and is standing right over her, with his gun pulled out and pointed at her face.

A hole suddenly starts to open up in the earth underneath the elite, rather right next to Posh. The elite disappears from sight suddenly, the earth falling loosely packed beneath him, about a meter of it, or so, indeed.

Dodging the gunfire from the Tiger, Blackheart grimaces as she sees what's going down. She's got to take some of these guys out fast! The ork looks too tough to take out with guns, so she uses her magic. Six cubic meters of earth puff up from beneath him, dropping him into an impromptu grave, about two meters deep. As he falls, Blackheart releases the spell, dropping the heavy, cold soil on top of him. Probably not enough weight to kill him, but it will take him minutes instead of seconds to dig his way out..

The ork with the SMG falls unconscious, now, leaving on the White Tiger and the wounded mage, and presumably the elite who's now buried under a meter of earth above him.

The mage dies, badly, his soul ripped from him, leaving him dying unless medical attention allos the bonds to be kept from breaking. The White Tiger, however, manages to barely survive, hanging onto life by a thread, now very badly wounded, it seems, leaving Blackheart quite weakened from her burying of the elite guard too.

«Plot» Posh says, "BillyBob: You are able to acquire a key fob from the corpse of the White Tiger. So you can just replace the transponder, as you made filed the plan for that information correctly."

«Plot» Posh says, "Blackheart is at 1 box Stun. Posh is trauma patched with 10 boxes, at Deadly."

Blackheart's spell reaches out, taking the White Tiger down in a flash of magical energy, leaving the badly wounded mage suddenly at the complete mercy of Prey's claws, who drops from above directly onto him, leaving in the doorway, his throat torn out moments later.

Things got bad and bloody, it see,s and Posh is dying…however, BillyBob pulls up soon, in the van. It seems like things are a go - at least for now. But the team's been hit much harder than expected, and there's only seconds as the enemies die all around.

Blackheart gets a little bit sinister, though - after a moment of resting up, she's taking the chance to create another spell: one that will clear magical traces of her here.

With Posh and the rest of the enemies swiftly trauma patched, however, and the elite bodyguard emerging right into gunpoint, only the White Tiger dies as a result of the mission. Unable to attack the law, and with his operation gone, the elite guard seems only interested in preserving what might be left for some other operation…and it's not like they really have help to ring in.

So they allow BillyBob to depart with the White Tiger and with Posh, one a corpse, the other nearly so, but stabilized with the trauma patch, and then…well, let's see if he can get things going.

«Auto-Judge[]» Posh (#11342) rolls 1 for "Limb damage":

As Posh is examined more closely, it seems that the energy feedback from the powerful spell, which had hit her right in the head, had sizzled and damaged her cyberarm - there's the magical effects of the wound, a necrosis-looking phenomenon, around the eye socket with the burned out cybereye. But she, and the corpse of the White Tiger, are loaded effectively on, leaving the survivors to deal with the fallout of the death of their boss and their need to find a new protector. And with BillyBob liftin' off, to head on over to the Smuggler's Haven…well, all that's next is a border check.

And of course, on the way, the door of the rotodrone opens, an inert falling form drops out, to become a meal for the beasts of the wilderness.

The White Tiger's days are over.

«Plot» Posh says, "Credstick accepted, and cyberscanners are not successful enough to detect other than the presence of cyberware."

Blackheart is able to just show her datajack, which didn't get picked up either, and her cybereyes, and the scanner waves her on through.

«Auto-Judge[]» Posh (#11342) rolls 4 vs TN 4 for "BillyBob Rating 4 SIN vs Scanner":

BillyBob is questioned briefly about his vehicle control rig, detected by the cyberscanners, but as that is covered by his pilot license, which checks out as a legitimate application on his SIN, he's headed on through, and then it's just a quick trip back…leaving Prey and Posh, together, with the SuperKombi, to head back to the border.

However, with Prey's ability to pass borders, it's relatively easy to ditch the van outside the city and then sneak Posh in on foot, Prey's superhuman strength making it relatively easy to do some version of firearm carries. Indeed, though - Posh is likely to hear a lot about just how much her nearly eighty kilos was for the considerably lighter Prey.

«Plot» Posh says, "Prey, give me a Smuggling Routes and an Evading Border Guards."

Murdock, with no cyberware, however, is waved on through, consisting of the tired element of the party along with Blackheart. The air taxi itself is given a thorough inspection but comes up clean - apparently it has no contraband aboard, either. And so…many hours later, the team awaits to hear if Prey successfully got Posh over the border.

Prey does in the end, what Prey does best. One moment she is there, and then she is gone. It isn't like she is ever carrying visible illegal equipment. And thus, before long, she is dropping off her oversized cargo at the Keeps and scowling.
