Shadowrun 2056

Downtime...

Glider is going to get a few things with her new found earnings.

First, she is paying for two months rent in her current apartment (4000).
She is going to get a rating 4 fake credstick Identity (5000).
She is going to buy a half suit of form fitting body armor (250).
She is also going to get another place to live/safe house perhaps a middle lifestyle for a little more security.
She also is thinking that a defiance supershock that shoot darts is going to be a good acquisition. She is going to ask Hal, her fixer for one along with some ammo for it, 40 rounds.

Going into the Museum.

We sabotaged the duplex guard’s scooter. he gets to the museum anyway.

Tis and Eris take the defiance supershocks.

I take one rating 10 tranq patch and 2 rating 5 tranq patches to help incapacitate guards.
Eris does astral recon. No spirits are visible. The astral signatures in the building are distributed through out. Two on each of the top two floors, one on the third and three total on the lowest. Plus three in the security office.

We back up the the loading dock, the keycard gets us in. Thanks Sidewinder.
He works on the cameras.

Tis, Black Sun and I go down to the second floor, Jackhammer, Eris, and Exx go to the top floor to start work on the guards and prepping the car for transport. Tis turns on the jammer which blocks communication. Which also alerts the rest of the guards to our presence.

I tranq patch the first guard. Unfortunately, his buddy down the way hears him hit the floor. We use the supershock that Tis has and take down the next guard fairly fast but guard on the top floor looks over. Another taser dart, from Eris, and he falls the the second floor.
The other guard up top gets a bullet and goes down from Jackhammer. who also keeps him from bleeding out with a quick first aid.

Black Sun, Tis, and I go to the security office. We open the door and tell them to stand down and onone gets hurt.
Meanwhile, Eris sees a guard fleeing to get out of the building. he gets out. We enlist the radios and tell the supervisor to have him come back. he of course called Lone Star.
We tie up everyone in the security office and keep the guys on the bottom floor there.

Exx is successful in getting the tracker off the car and Jackhammer and the rest of us then push the car to the loading dock and get away just in time to avoid Lon Star. We change into the garbage truck successfully.

Then we load it into the container truck and take it to the docks.
And we get paid.
We split up the nuyen 21,000 each and leave 4050 in a group fund.

We learn that the special event the next day is cancelled and was to have been a wedding between Enricae Carouzo and Starshine (aka sophie Calhoun). The two Shelby’s were to be their wedding presents.

Getting the Shelby...final preparations.

We recruit Sidewinder for Matrix support for the run on the Shelby for 4500 nuyen, 1000 up front.

Black sun is renting the truck we will use for getting the car first.

Tis, Eris, and I are going to get the guard’s credentials by staking out their dosses to start with.

Tis and I go out first. One of the guards we followed lives in an apartment complex and the other in a duplex. Eris and I go to the apartment complex to see if there is a vacant apartment near the guard;s apartment to facilitate the snatch and grab. We talk to the landlord and find out that there are a few apartments for rent just none near enough of the guard’s.
I leave my applicaiton open in case I can get a new apartment as a second hideout.

Tis and I then go to the duplex. I was thinking that we would stake out the duplex and watch it to see the guard’s movements. Tis decides to stake it out by stealthing into it directly. She spends some time in there. Turns out it will be very difficult to get the guy out without potential issues.

We therefore procure a fake keycard, via Jackhammer’s contact Gunny, that sidewinder can use to get us into the museum once he has secured things on that end.

Tonight we go in.

Black Sun fails some more stealth.
October 9th, 2055

We decide to go make sure that Black Sun’s failure to shadow the guard has not caused any changes. Unfortunately, it has. The are more guards the next night than the night before, looks like there are now 8 instead of 5.
Worse yet, during our stake out, Black Sun is made again! Luckily they do not see me, but she is forced to slink away after a Lone Star police cruiser shows up and starts looking directly at where she is hiding. This is followed up by another cruiser showing up and several cops search her hiding place.
I decide to try to alleviate some of the guards concerns by tagging the museum sidewalk with a gang symbol, an older one that is not necessarily used as much but still somewhat legit.

However, the next morning all of the guards leave the museum in pairs.
Looks like we are going to have to be careful when we talk to one of them at home…

On a brighter note, Exx finds a place to stash the garbage truck for the hand off of the Shelby to lose any tails the next day (October 10th).

Here’s to hoping Black Sun does better in the stealthiness department when we do the run.
Let’s just say that I plan on not being next to her on the way in…

Staking out the Museum
October 8th, 2055

We decide to tail three guards to their homes in order to be ablet o take one of them down/convince them to stay home on the appropriate night to facilitate our retrieval of the Shelby. Black Sun, Tis, and I do the shadowing. Tis and I are successful, however, Black Sun get made and the guard drives to the Lone star station directly.
I hope she is better at stealth than this later. She could compromise things if she is not careful.

Sidewinder gets back to us...
October 7th, 2055

Sidewinder call me at 2:30am. Will have to be more explicit with him moving forward about phone etiquette.
He has information for me on the delivery etc.First the makeup of the PMC escorts for the delivery. there is typically a lead car, a tail car and 1-2 roaming vehicles, usually bikes. with 8 to 15 assigned personnel with the senior most team members closest to the item being escorts.

In the Museum, there are 6 cameras/ramp and 4-6 cameras per floor. In addition there are pressure sensors on the roof keyed to go off if more than about 50kg touches any one of them.
He also learns that there is a private party happening on the 14th with extra security being implemented during that time and the museum is going to be closed that day to the public.
Deliveries to the museum usually happen on Saturday nights.

Exx decides that a garbage truck as an intermediary transport would be a good idea. We hash out the details of why, if, and how it might make sense to do this and then go about stealing one.
He then proceeds to work on modifying the inside of the compactor to accommodate the Shelby. He puts in tie downs and works on some appropriate ramps.
We then decide it is prudent to get some defiance supershock pistols for taking down guards without collateral damage. Plus 50 rounds of ammo. That now leaves us with about 4750 Nuyen left from our advance.

More information...
October 6th, 2055

Hermione calls with information, for 1500 Nuyen. The car is owned by an Italian named Selani Baldi (mob…).Senator Fieldcrest from Illinois (mob!) is the one who coordinated the military delivery.
It is traveling from Palermo Italy to Miami then Boston and then direct flight to Seattle by the Fed Boeing PMC. this is not looking like anything that can be intercepted in route to Seattle.

Still waiting on info from Sidewinder. getting a little concerned about him…

Casing the Joint...
October 5th, 2055

This place is kinda cool. However it is going to present some challenges for getting the car out of the building. Even though it is built like a car parking ramp, with all of the displays we are going to have to be creative in how we go about this.
Sidewinder is going to have to own the cameras in order to keep security off our backs and/or we are going to have to take them all out through stealthy means. Need to keep collateral damage to a minimum here.
Magical astral recon indicates no overt magical security during the day.
Lone Star is only about 5 minutes away so keeping things quiet is going to be important.
visiting the museum during normal business hours we see 5-6 security guards om partol and 1 or 2 in the security office. they are armed with tasers and batons, and maybe heavy pistols.
A plan might be forming in the group. will need to know more about the security system from Sidewinder.

Information gathering for the car heist of the year...
October 3rd and 4th, 2055

Well it is going to be on display at the American Car Museum located only a few blocks from The Dome.
I am going to talk to Hal and colonel Walters and see what info I can get from them on this.
The X is talking to Vincent and Samantha, Jackhammer is going to talk to S-Mart and black Sun is going to inquire with Hermione.
on the 3rd, S-mart calls back and says that this car coming in is going to frag up his whole flight schedule on the 10th. Some Senator has pulled some favor to get this car delivered by military transport and Private military contractor.
Colonel walters indicates that there were some significant favors pulled in to do this. but is not sure who.
On the 4th we get some information on the car. it is to be on display at the American Car Museum from October 11 through the 22nd along side a 1967 Shelby GT500 Coupe.
The OMC doing the delivery from Fort Lewis is owned by Federated Boeing and is coming from Miami.
We hire a Decker, Sidewinder, to help us get some information and then to run matrix duty during the run. 1000 Nuyen or 500 Nuyen if other pay-data presents itself.

Time to case the joint and see what security is like. etc…

The meet at the Tacoma Dome Hotel.
its a Car.

We get there a early and have dinner. Tis looks good but damn she is hard to shop with.

Jackhammer is going to wait in the nearby park, he is a little hard ot get into some places especially with his cyberarm. But would not want to go on a run without him.

Mr. Johnson is actually Ms. Johnson, asian in a blue suit. We meet in the bar in a booth that has the customary privacy activated. She says that the item of interest is quite large and is going to be delivered in Seattle on the 10th of October. We are to find out where it is going and divert it to another location.
She offers us 125,000 Nuyen to do the job. We discuss the particulars and come to a compromise of 130,000 total with 10,000 upfront, 120,000 upon safe delivery of the item plus a semitruck for hauling the item to the docks for pickup and delivery.

We get some more details at this point.

It is a 1967 Shelby GT 500 convertible. a one of a kind car. it is to be shipped by military transport to Fort Lewis here in Seattle on the 10th of October in the early morning hours. We are to deliver it to the docks in the container truck and trailer by the 15th of October for free shipping handing over some documentation to the Harbor Master. If we miss that deadline but still get the car, we have to ship it ourselves on our dime. The car must be in pristine condition for full payment.

that is quite a request. We think we can pull this off. Now for some digging to find out where it is going.
