Storms of Steel and Sound

A hard day's night
day 1

After a last minute booking at the Red Velvet Lounge, Madam Boom Boom and her crew found that the clubs owner was looking for more than a soft set with an edge to it. Gregor Travaski had a job that needed the utmost discretion. His home was robbed during some renovations and the former Kombiant soldier does not wish to appear weak, thus outside help is required.

His home was getting some renovations and a security upgrade, unfortunately only a low end redundant system was functional at the time, so the only vid is low end but does show 4 men tossing the place and leaving with several items.

Gregor does not care about the money but several items were of sentimental significant and the insult alone is making him see red. He is willing to pay 10k for the recovery of his items and an addition 4k for an ear from each of the scum runners to robbed him, to teach them a lesson.

The only items he wants back are a small wooden icon box, a gold and ruby ring w/ a Russian military emblem on it, an DMX music mixing deck, and a Chinese urn with his fathers ashes. He provides 5k up front as well as a copy of the security vid. His nephew, Zander, will also be going along. Zander is new to Night City and has fallen out of favor with his former comrades so he is looking for work.

After packing up the boom-bus, the crew gets to work. Glitch ran a search on the web and ’Misa examined the vid while trying to improve the resolution. Although nothing comes up on the net for Gregor, the video shows four black men (faces obscured) ransacking the place and leaving. In a reflection one of the men can be seen shooting up. Enfuego, the roady, knows a local dealer who caters to low end users in the area.

Dust, the cook / dealer, has an idea of where the men must be from but does not want money for the information. He has a more personally problem; his input seems to have been kidnapped by a biker gang called the snake bites.

The crew rolled to the snake bites club house and tried the frontal approach. While Boom Boom tried to make a distraction, Enfuego and Zander attempted to take on the entire bar in a brawl. Meanwhile ‘Misa managed to make it to the back of the club house only to discover that Trish, Dust’s former input, has willingly shacked up with the snake bits, apparently unimpressed with Dust.
When things went (further) south Glitch cut the power to the club and Boom and ’Misa made their escape, dragging Trish with them. After inadvertently offing the head snake.

The evening ending with a early morning wake up call for Dust and an apparently happy reunion. For his part he managed to place the area of town the men must have been from. He even has a contact there that can probably identify the hoods the team is looking for.

Exhausted from the long night after a show the crew heads out to crash for a few hours before hitting the streets again.

Fire...To destroy all you have done
day 2

After a few hours rest and an afternoon breakfast later the team headed to the east end of town to find the White Rabbit.

Wisely deciding not to take the boom bus into the less then savory neighborhood, the crew finds themselves entering a large hab block in a rundown area of town. The insides look and smell as bad as you would expect, although the well-armed guards on the elevator seemed a bit out of place.

After being forced to walk up several flights of stairs the team found that the White Rabbit apparently operates out of several well maintained floors in this building. His “office” is one entire half of the 5th floor with the walls knocked down to make a spacious work area. The Rabbit himself is an obese black male in his 30’s with an eclectic collection of dangerous associates. Having heard from Dust of the teams need and their ability to do favors he had one of his own.

It seems that he does not care for the explanation of competitors in his domains and has asked the players to “burn down” a small time operation as an example to any who might think it a good idea. Upon confirmation of the task he will give the players what they want.

In very short order Glitch and Feugo manage to locate the lab and quit literally burn it down but upon leaving the now burning building they find their targets occupy a room two floors higher in the same – now burning – building. The fire department looks to be late.

A quick entrance, which leaves Feugo with 2 black eyes and a bloody nose, surprises the burglars and after a brief fire fight (and a 7 story drop) the stolen items (and some ears) are recovered. All but one item anyway, the urn, which was made apparent by the escape of a young man of Asian descent – after a dirty escape in which the shit almost hit the fan as well as Zander. In the confusion of the building evacuation Zander lost the last item and now that Feugo has come-to the party is ready to make their next move; hopefully soon as the building is still on fire…..
