With Rockhound joining the team , they now have a young punk hacker , with a bad attitude and badder mouth, so what if the likes milk?
With team on full alert them jump into rockhounds car , a mean peace of street kit – no how do we fit a human, an ork and a troll into this!!!!
They join the busy streets and follow the information lady nels sent them via commlink –
The neighborhood was once a very nice residential development, showing decades of the neglect associated with the Redmond Barrens. There is a squat, one-story storefront across from a battered Citymaster. The only sound on the street comes from a large red truck, turning onto the highway several blocks away.
They begin to search the area , The following is a list of evidence that can be found at the scene:
•The Citymaster has been totaled; its doors and front
hood have been torn off, its engine ripped apart. The
inside, however, is completely clean, without a
speck of dust.
•The storefront is demolished. The windows are
gone, but there is no broken glass anywhere to be
seen. The frame of the door is on the ground, having
been ripped off of its hinges, but the glass that was
in it is gone.
•The interior walls are plastic and have many bullet
holes. . They contain no bullets.
•The back room contains the broken casing of a
desktop commlink, but the internal components are missing.
•You detect the faint odor of cleaning solution in the
carpet and on the walls (and the ceiling if anyone
checks that). Four hits on this test will also detect the
even fainter scent of blood and cordite.
•One of the walls has an indentation, as from a large
object striking it with heavy force. ITsuggests that the object
may have been a body.
•When assensing of the astral space in the area, you
determine that there was much violence and fear in
Getting back to Lady Nells , the team update her on the situation,she offers them the job that Ice’s Irregulars were trying to accomplish, along with their paycheck of 73,000¥ She is willing to throw in the 10,000¥ left over from the team not being able to rescue the Irregulars, but she will not part with it willingly.
Ice’s Irregulars were hired to find Mr. Johnson’s newlywed bride, who is about three months pregnant. Trideo identification is offered, but the name given is simply “Mrs. Johnson.” Mr. and Mrs. Johnson are also both magically active. Lady Nell does not know anything more about the run; that information was given to the runners by Mr. Johnson personally. Mr. Johnson met with the runners virtually via commlink, and then started his journey to Seattle from the Zurich Orbital station, and will be out-oftouch for another twelve hours. Mr. Ice, the Irregulars’ leader, was confident that they could retrieve the woman before Mr. Johnson touched down at SeaTac.
Whilst the are looking around Rockhound keeps hearing a whisper in his ear … the voice whispers “Wait ” , he then spots a figure in a building , the characters maker there way there and see a A ghostly image of a short human in a flowing coat hovers .
“That was Lady Nell, wasn’t it? You’re the backupteam. Fat load of fraggin’ good you slots turned out tobe! You’re as useless as my glitched-up chiphead slitchof a sister. You’re too late, watcher-brains, we’ve all been killed. Oh, spirits! I’ve been killed! I am dead! This is the end! There’s nothing left! I am dead! I am dead!” He curls up into a fetal position, sobbing and muttering. [after the ghost is calmed and comforted] “I’m sorry about that,” says the ghost, “I’m afraid I’m new at this whole being dead thing. First time for me.” He laughs nervously. “My name is Sobriquet; I’m the magician for Ice’s Irregulars. Look, I don’t have a lot of time, but I’d appreciate it if you could pick up where we left off. “The woman’s cab had been hijacked remotely from this place. Alice, that was our hacker, had just pulled a bunch of paydata out of their system when we got hit by … something. I didn’t see it coming; I was doing astral overwatch at the time. All of a sudden, I felt violence and fear, and when I came back to look, I got a glimpse of a magically active aura when I felt my body die; it was the most painful thing that’s ever happened to me. Or likely ever will. Anyway, I hid, and the thing vanished as quickly as it had come. Almost at the exact same time, a truck pulled up and about a half a dozen people came out. I manifested discretely to see what was going on and they were cleaning! For a second I thought I was in shock, but that’s what they were doing. They took the bodies and cleaned the place up, and took off. It was very strange. Anyway, the truck was red, but otherwise unmarked. One of the body bags they used had a logo, though: a pale man in a puritan costume. If you can find Alice’s body, I’m sure you could get the information out of her commlink. She had it implanted in her skull. That’s it. I’ll answer your questions, but I really need to go. I have some things I want to take care of before I finish dying.”
The team gets back to Havlock pad and there fixer rings them . Just like a bus, you dont get a job for ages then 2 come along……………………
Your fixer’s on the line, and that can only mean one thing—a job. Cred. A way to keep the wolves o- your back for a couple more weeks—if you survive, that is. “Yeah, I got a job for you,” the fixer says. “Looks like something you guys should be able to handle. Meet Mr. Johnson at 21:00 at Infinity. e meet’ll be in one of the private conference rooms—tell the elf bartenderchica that you’re with the Johnson party and she’ll show you where to go. Oh, and dress like you know what you’re doing, willya?”
Ringing you contacts about the paleman logo , you get the info you need Discrete Disposal out in the Barrens Industrial area , mediocre in everything , including REP , its 2am , where else are you going to go???
The Discrete Disposal facility is a gray concrete building, about ninty meters square by about sixteen meters high. It is surrounded by a concrete parking lot, cracked and devoid of life; even weeds. On this side of the building, there are four garage doors lined up along the right side of the building’s face, and a small office visible through the glass windows and door on the left. The office is lit, and a strained-looking human in her twenties is apparently playing some game on her commlink behind a counter. The night is silent.
As soon as you enter the premises
You suddenly feel the presence of a background count as you cross the threshold of the building. The sense of festering decay infuses your astral senses, and the space within the facility is thick with dark eddies and whorls. A deep voice comes from all directions, its echoes preceding it’s words. “Now that’s interesting,” it says sonorously, “most people would flee this place. Why don’t you and your friends come? Once you are all inside the facility, you notice a figure that you thought had not been there a moment ago. It looks male, and stands almost two meters high. His skin is a pale, almost translucent white. He is dressed in a long, flowing black coat over a conservative suit, and wears a puritan hat with a silver buckle. He folds his long-fingered hands together and speaks, “Welcome to Discrete Disposal, (ladies) (and) (gentlemen). We’ve been in business almost twenty years, and this is the first time we’ve had clients from, shall we say, the shadows. What brings you to myhumble establishment?”
You ask about new waste, and the man says he gives all new waste to his guests in the basement, if your looking something it will be there, making theie way into the basement , they are accosted by a lot of ghouls , the fight is short and brutal , and probably best explained by Havlock……………..
They find the com and take it back to Havlocks pad, Rock hound hacks it and finds the following information
30 stainless steel hospital gurneys
1440 body bags
3200 IV kits
2 MT-435 Genetic Stabilizer Units
3 crash carts
30 BG3 Medical Scanners

Data Summary: Project Icarus
Excerpt of CENSORED Internal Resume, Michael
Smith, Project Icarus Lead Researcher 2061-
Project Icarus was a research project
sponsored by CENSORED and based in
CENSORED. The aim of the project was to
attempt to reduce the loss of body integrity
normally caused by introducing bioware by
allowing the implants to grow along with the
recipient. By matching the development of the
bioware to the recipient, we were able to
achieve a 30% success rate, with only a 63%
fatality rate. In June of 2063, the project was
deemed incapable of offering marketability,
and the project’s assets and test subjects were
In the process of leading research, I became
intimately familiar with the MT-435 Genetic
Stabilizer Unit. While this piece of equipment is
generally considered useless in most research,
it was vital to Project Icarus, and is very similar
to the MT-2071 units used in your project.
You have the next lead, but maybe its time for some shut eye , you have a meet at 9pm, plus the daytime is for wages slaves, the night time is for a shadowrunner ………………………..
