The Timeraptors, the Lab's Structural Integrity


Summary

A bunch of eggheads got carried away with their experimentations, which then proceeded to break free and slaughter nearly everyone within the lab, forcing the loons to hire shadowrunners to clean up their mess. At 4am.

Background

The runners each received a call from their fixers at 4am about a disturbance in Renton, where they all gathered outside of a strange building where three men sat waiting for them outside.

The Meet

The runners met with Malcolm and Ian Crichton (and Nedward, but Artemisia made him take his retirement a day early. Poor man never skipped leg day again), where the pair explained that their experiments ran away and caused chaos, killing most of the staff. They also spent all their budget on the raptors, so they had no money for security. However, for being brought in at 4am the runners were in no mood for their mess, and after a quick and brutal negotiation managed to wrangle 10k nuyen out of the eggheads. With that, the runners set off to slaughter some timeraptors.

The Plan

The plan was exceptionally elegant in it's simplicity, in that the runners simply decided to wing it.

The Run

The run was a quick and extremely brutal affair, starting slow and escalating extremely quickly. Wychking summoned a few spirits to scout out the initial hallway, before Artemisia lost patience and took her minigun and mowed down the first room along the hallway, completely renovating a meeting room with bullet holes. It only got worse from there as Frag Face decided he despised any and all doors, and proceeded to walk straight through several walls, sometimes right next to the doors explicitly to make a point. The raptors were quickly located and killed with extreme prejudice from there, with Artemisia mowing them down one by one and Frag Face literally pasting a few of them with his fists. Zenith helped clean up the few they didn't turn into salsa, and Wychking played support, boosting Artemisia to insane levels of speed. The end result was a slew of dead raptors, and a building with so many new structural renovations it would likely need to be condemned after the fact.

Aftermath

The raptors were slain (alongside a good majority of the building's structural integrity), and the runners collected their payment before going back to their respective homes to go to bed, fixing the mess they were asked to solve.... and leaving the scientists with a completely new issue to deal with.

Rewards

  • 8 Karma (8 RVP)
  • 2 CDP
  • Can exchange 3 RVP for Optional Contact: Malcolm & Ian Crichton (C3/L1) with +1 Chip

Game Quotes

Player After Action Reports (AARs)

Winter

"What is that man's problem with doors? I wouldn't be surprised if that building is condemned after this!

...Still, fair's fair, for waking us all up at 4am."

Artemisia

"Wielding the wrath of the Goddess is truly a powerful feeling. That "Frag Face" seems like a useful ally as well, if guided properly he may be able to cause damage to the Horned One and his followers. Now to re-stock on ammo."

Wychking

"I can't believe I finally have flamethrower ammo, but... I don't know what I was expecting. More professionalism? Might've been a bad call. Oh, well. What the hell were they doing with SURGEd alligators, anyway?"

Zenith

So let's see. We had someone who wouldn't stop screaming about the time, a psychopath with a minigun, Frag Face, and a pretty effective Giant who didn't mind when I shot through her leg. Admittedly I would have liked a little bit more professionalism, but sometimes you gotta killed dinosaurs at five in the morning.

Gotta say though, this was my first run with Frag Face and while he is... effective, I dunno that he's someone I'd like on my team all the time. Seems like another King Beef waiting to happen.
