Shadowrun: A Game of Drones

Dead Run, part 1

Take out some poor guy who’s already in a coma, that’s got to be the easiest money a Shadowrunner’s ever made, right?

Except that when the team is finally ready to strike, the target isn’t there any more… and then Zombies start taking over the hospital. Just another day in 2073.

A Stranger in Our House

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.

Soup for One

Played on May 1st, 2013
Players: Cleveland, Ben, Steven, Kirsten

A sideline mission in Hong Kong. The runners are hired by a noodle soup restaurant owner, in order to make sure a rival’s noodle soup factory fails health inspection in the most spectacular way possible.

This ended with the dead rival sharing a soup vat with a ghoul in a gimp suit.

A Fistful of Credsticks

Played: December 2012 to February 2013
Players: Beir, Wuffy, Chris, Martin

The first in a series of modules revolving around Horizon corporation. The runners are originally hired for a routine job of transporting and securing some “special” props for a movie that is shooting for a couple of days at the Seattle Space Needle.

A Fistful of Credsticks tells the adventures of Shadowrunner Jenny Freelance (played by rising Simsense star Pandora),as she races corporate agents and magical sects around the world, to retrieve ancient artifacts of a forgotten age. The director claims it is based on real events.

The set comes under attack by another group of shadowrunners and the team gains the attention of the producers by rescuing Pandora from the attack. They are hired by Charisma Associates (a wholly owned subsidiary of Horizon) to extend their contract for a much more attractive pay as the shooting continues down in L.A. Expenses and transfer included, of course.

On The Run

Ran in November 2012.
Players: Beir, Martin, Wuffy, Anusorn

A classic Shadowrun intro adventure. The runners are hired by a Troll Johnson to retrieve the last record of a dead rock legend.

Once they do find the disk, they find out that not only it’s missing an encryption key, and that there’s a lot of people gunning for it. Including a Horizon security team, another group of shadowrunners, and a mysterious third party.

On this run, the team ended up meeting up with the third party (in a graveyard, of all places) and accepting their offer for the disk. That left them with an offended Johnson but a very nice bundle of cash.

The Bunraku Breakout

Ran in Otober 2012
Participating: Beir, Martin, Dave, Anusorn

The players were hired by a Mafia boss, Don Lorenzo Bigio to retrieve his missing daughter. Discretion is key as he does not want his rivals to learn about his vulnerable family.

After some inquiry, it turns out she had been abducted by the Yakuza – unaware of her identity – to be used in one of their Bunraku, or meat-puppet parlors, a type of brothels where the girls are implanted with a personachip that brainwashes them to best fit the client’s fetishes.

Much noise, smoke, and kicking of gratuitous amounts of Yakuza ass followed, and the runners managed to get the girl just before she was implanted with the chip.
