Played: March to May 2013
Players: Beir, Chris, Martin, Ben, Kirsten, Steven
First part of the Ghost Cartels campaign. The runners are invited to a downtown Seattle strip club (Tickler’s) to meet a Ms. Johnson, who turns out to be a Korean stripper herself. The deal is for the players to put under surveillance two Native American gang operatives involved in the distribution of a new Awakened drug known as Tempo.
After an initial close brush with the gang when trying to locate the target, the first two days of the surveillance are relatively uneventful: One of the targets seems to be cutting a secondary distribution deal with another gang, whereas the other is busy pursuing a tryst with a middle aged woman at a local motel.
On the third day of the surveillance, the players observe the second target, the Elf Xa Firebird, as he attempts to eavesdrop on his gang boss during a meeting at an Everett warehouse complex, exhibiting skills and gear way beyond what would be expected of an average ganger.
Upon reporting to Ms Johnson, the runners are asked to terminate the target for a large reward, immediately and with extreme prejudice.
