S1E1: Everyone's Your Friend
Well, not EVERYONE...

Seattle, 2076. Maybe not the Runner’s Golden Age, but there’s always jobs to do and the bills always need to be paid. Enter Peoples, BitShift, and Wheels, three down on their luck Seattlites fallen into Running.

Their fence, a known recruiter named “Honest John”, had an offer to protect the one and only Vendetta Violent as she swung through on her Seattle-leg of her most recent rock tour. The job is simple: Babysit VV for the week, if she needs back-up help her out, and don’t blow up Seattle in the process. Peoples negotiated for 11k nuyen plus expenses and their share of any money VV makes on side runs while she’s here.

Meanwhile, BitShift decided to engage in some high-stakes digital robbery and stole money from the Commlink of a man in the restaurant who turned out to be Johnny Gao, a major lieutenant in the Gao Yakuza family. After the meet Johnny invited BitShift over and a fight quickly broke out. It ended just as quickly as BitShift learned the pain associated when a Decker goes rounds with a Physical Adept.

Their mission planned and BitShift still smarting from the ass beating he received, they started prepping to rendezvous with Ms. Vendetta Violent.

VV, The Vatos, and Marty's

Intel in hand, the crew got into Wheels’ car and hit the airport in time to catch up with Vendetta at the Seattle Airport.

There VV and Gao spoke and despite his best offer, VV turned Johnny down and went upstairs for some “baw-chicka-wow-wow” time with Peoples. Afterwards they got dolled up and started heading to Marty’s, a Runner club in the Barrens.

As you know, chummers, drek in the Sprawl don’t ever go to plan. So scan this, unknown to the team, they entered the territory of Los Vatos, a Go-Gang run by Raul Ortiz and his cousin Filipe Rodriguez. BitShift, not a hardened runner, went hostile and in a quick motion killed Filipe, causing his bike to slide into a dumpster, crushing him to death. When the team stopped, BitShift scrambled to get his Gang Fixer “Dick” on the Com, who smoothed things over in the immediate, but before the week was out BitShift would need to come explain to Filipe’s mom why her son had to die. Visibly affected by the realization of what he had done, they continued to Marty’s.

Marty’s was a great show for VV, except that halfway through her third song the club’s hostilities lights went yellow and before the team could really react People’s saw three guys dressed at ninjas slip into the club, pulls guns,at the stage, and fire…
