<Azreal> "You want to slap me too?? I'll give you a free shot, but you better give a fair chance to me..."
<Nova> "I don't give fair chances."
<Azreal> "Then I would suggest backing off."
<GM> * The little elven girl calls you both out in the middle of the woods. *
<GM> ((i should just drop diablo on you people))
<GM> ((like, he skydives in from a plane...))
<GM> ((lands on fenix...))
<GM> ((pummels nova... and gives Azreal a flower))
<Azreal> ((lmao))
<Nova> LOL
  • FenixHawk sits down.
  • FenixHawk takes off his shoe.
<GM> * Your foot is beginning to swell a little. It's tender, but you can wiggle your toes. *
  • FenixHawk wiggles his toes.
<GM> * Not broken most likely. *
<FenixHawk> "That's good."
  • Nova looks up to the sky when Fenix starts wiggling.
<Nova> "..."
  • Azreal walks back towards Allan and crouches down to look at him.
<GM> * Allan is ALL FUCKED UP. *
  • Azreal tries to help Allan the best she can.
<GM> * Az: You position Allan's head better against the tree bark. *
  • Nova keeps on searching for hostiles.
<GM> * Nova, you pick up an approaching plane. Sounds single-prop. *
<GM> * It may land... may circle... *
<GM> * Only Nova hears it, with his superman hearing. *
  • FenixHawk stands up.
  • Azreal tries to hold onto Allan.
  • FenixHawk walks over to Allan also.
<GM> * Allan begins to stir. *
<GM> * "Mmmm." *
<GM> * Allan starts to come around. *
<GM> * "...Ma...Maaa.." *
<GM> * "MY fucking knee!!" *
  • Azreal holds him.
  • Nova goes closer to the landing area and tries to localize the plane.
<GM> * "W-what...W-where am I?" *
  • Nova uses his vision mag. to check the plane closely after he notices it.
<GM> * The plane is approaching. You can see the lights in the distance. *
<GM> * You hear it now, Fenix. *
  • FenixHawk turns.
<GM> * It's a single prop plane. Old fashioned. *
<FenixHawk> "Take defensive positions."
  • FenixHawk gets behind the van and pulls out his gun.
  • Nova draws his gun, still looking at the plane.
<GM> * Azreal, what're you doing? *
  • Azreal protects Allan.
<GM> * In about 4 minutes the plane lands on the runway. *
<GM> * There is one heat sig, the pilot. *
<Azreal> "Let's get to the drop..."
<GM> * Allan: "Am I safe?" *
<Azreal> "Yeah, you're safe, sweety"
  • Azreal kisses Allan's forehead.
<Nova> "Who was to pick you up?"
<GM> * "I-I dunno....My dad... My dad sent him." *
<FenixHawk> "What's your dad's name?"
<Azreal> "Who's your dad, baby?"
<Nova> "Great.. any passwords, handshakes, signs?"
<GM> * Allan looks confusedly at all of you questioning him at once. *
<GM> * "N-no..." *
<Nova> "I HATE this run.."
<Nova> "Okay, who wants to check on the plane?"
<FenixHawk> "I'll go."
<Azreal> "You can."
  • FenixHawk gathers his senses and walks out to the plane.
<GM> * The plane glides to a stop in front of the shack. *
  • Nova still keeps an ear for movement.
  • Azreal sits with Allan.
<FenixHawk> "Az, can you come with me? We may need to negotiate."
<Azreal> "Fine."
<Nova> "And guard the plane if necessary"
<Azreal> "Of course."
  • Azreal follows.
<GM> * The propellers come to a stop. *
<GM> * Nova, you see the pilot sit there for a little while. *
  • Azreal rolls her eyes.
<FenixHawk> To Azreal: "You know, come to think of it, you were great on the docks."
<FenixHawk> "But that car... It's been with me through some shit."
<FenixHawk> "It was a lot to take in."
<Azreal> "I told you I would fix it up for ya.. I can make it good as new."
<GM> * The pilot opens his door after checking his watch. *
<GM> * He gets out of his plane and looks at the van. *
  • FenixHawk looks at him.
<GM> * He's a human man, about 6' tall. He's wearing a red baseball cap, and a tacky collared shirt tucked into denim jeans with tennis shoes. *
<FenixHawk> "Are you here for the package?"
<GM> * "Who's there?" *
<GM> * He's dark-complected, with thick black hair. *
<FenixHawk> "Name's Fenix Hawk."
<Azreal> "I'm Azreal."
<GM> * The pilot shifts. "Where is he?" *
<FenixHawk> "Safe."
<GM> * He thumbs his waistband, putting his hands behind his back. *
  • FenixHawk whispers something to Azreal.
  • Azreal nods.
  • Azreal stands there with her hands on her hips.
<FenixHawk> "Whose authority are you here on?"
<GM> * "Mr. Smythe sent me." *
<FenixHawk> "Call him."
<GM> * "..." *
<GM> * "Jesus Christ." *
<GM> * He takes his cell phone off his belt and dials a number. *
<GM> * It's old-fashioned, like him. An actual cellular phone. *
<GM> * "Mr. Smythe, please." He pauses. "It's Rogers...Yes..." *
<GM> * He looks at you both, annoyed. "On hold." *
<FenixHawk> "You should have said 'no'."
<GM> * "Hey, the boss doesn't take 'no' for an answer." *
<GM> * "I got a kid to feed." *
<FenixHawk> "Me too. She's 16."
<GM> * He looks at you both. *
<GM> * "..." *
<GM> * "You too, huh?" *
  • FenixHawk nods.
<GM> * "Scary as hell, some of the boys she brings home." *
<GM> * He shakes his head. *
<FenixHawk> "You should see the ones mine brings home, one in particular."
<FenixHawk> "I'm going to kill him."
  • FenixHawk says it flat, without emotion.
<GM> * "Hello? Yeah...Mr. Smythe...uhhh...There are some elves here, they told me to call you." *
<GM> * "..." *
<GM> * "Yes sir." *
<FenixHawk> "Let me speak with him?"
<GM> * He's already handing the phone over to you. *
  • FenixHawk takes it.
<GM> * The voice: "Where's my boy?" *
<FenixHawk> "Safe."
<Nova> ((the phone explodes into your head))
<FenixHawk> "Alive."
<GM> * "None of your shadow talk, let me talk to him." *
<FenixHawk> "Ok. But while I am walking over to him, I will tell you why I am calling. We want more money."
<GM> * He barks a laugh. *
<FenixHawk> "I'm sorry you feel that way."
  • FenixHawk hangs up.
<GM> * That was...foolish. *
<GM> * The phone sits in your hand and the little green number pad goes off. The pilot looks at you both. *
<GM> * The phone's light shuts off since it isn't in use. *
  • FenixHawk waits.
<GM> * Rogers stands at the plane and looks at you Fenix. *
  • FenixHawk walks back over.
<GM> * Rogers: "Mr. Smythe doesn't play games." *
<FenixHawk> "So what do you say?"
<GM> * "Hit redial." *
<FenixHawk> "IN a minute."
<FenixHawk> "What do you say when your daughter brings someone home that's strange?"
<GM> * "Me?" *
<FenixHawk> "Yes."
<FenixHawk> "Or do you just shoot him?"
<GM> * "I find out whether I like the kid or not." *
<GM> * "..." *
<GM> * "Never had to shoot one." *
  • FenixHawk laughs.
<FenixHawk> "That's good."
  • FenixHawk re-dials
<GM> * Click click. *
<GM> * Mr. Smythe: "I knew you'd call back. You mercenaries are all alike." *
<GM> * "I suggest you don't do that again." *
<FenixHawk> "Mr. Smythe our expenses come to over 20,000¥ and I will make this brief. We ask for 8,000 per person and 20,000 in expenses."
<GM> * Silence. *
<FenixHawk> "Considering we made enemies with one of the top dogs in the bounty hunter business, is that so much to ask?"
<FenixHawk> "Not only that, we had to kill whoever was paying for your son's bounty. Well, we blew up his helicopter anyway."
<GM> * You hear his breathing for a moment. *
<FenixHawk> "And I know the bounty is worth 250,000¥"
<FenixHawk> "But I have a reputation to keep, and I'm sure you will do well to enhance it after this job is over."
<GM> * "How many of you are there?" *
<FenixHawk> "Four."
<GM> * More silence. *
<Nova> ((yay, we can reach 1/5 the bounty..))
<GM> * "I offer you 15,000 a piece. No more." *
<GM> * "You can fight amongst yourselves for the bills." *
<FenixHawk> "15,000 a piece, I accept. If you need more work in the future, please call. Where do I get the money?"
  • FenixHawk points to Allan and motions for Nova to come over with him.
<GM> * Mr. Smythe: "Call your Johnson, shadowrunner." *
<GM> * #Click.# *
  • FenixHawk hands the phone back to the pilot.
<GM> * Rogers slips it into his cell holster. *
  • Nova helps Allan to stand up, roughly, and brings him over.
<GM> * Allan whines about his knee. *
<FenixHawk> "Bring the kid please, Nova."
<FenixHawk> "As much as they hate us, they need us."
<GM> * Allan: "Mike!" *
<GM> * Mike Rogers: "Hey kid." *
  • Nova walks the kid to the plane.
  • FenixHawk helps him into the plane.
<GM> * Rogers goes over to Allan. As he passes you, Fenix, you catch sight of the big nasty revolver tucked into his jeans at the small of his back. His hand must've been on it the whole time. *
  • FenixHawk pretty much knew that already.
<GM> * He gets the kid into the plane and straps him in. *
<GM> "What happened to his knee?" *
<Nova> "What does it look like?"
<GM> * "Huh?" *
<FenixHawk> "We had to fight off 5 or 6 of the hottest bounty hunters in Seattle, and he's still in one peice... more or less.... what do you think happened to his knee?"
<GM> * "Yeah, I figured." *
<FenixHawk> "Take care of yourself, Allan. I hope you learned something from all this."
  • FenixHawk walks away.
<Nova> "Yeah, like to shut up"
<GM> * Allan: "What?" *
<GM> * The door shuts. *
  • Nova walks away to the van.
<GM> * The propeller starts to turn and the plane backs up. *
<GM> * Azreal's at the driver's seat of the van already. *
<Nova> <to Az> "If you really want it.." *sits in the back*
  • FenixHawk calls the Johnson.
<GM> * The line connects. *
<GM> * "Johnson." *
<FenixHawk> "The package is safe."
<FenixHawk> "Delivered. Secured. Whatever"
<GM> * "Hold on." *
<GM> * You're put on hold. The cellular signal's a little rough out here. *
<GM> * You watch the little plane take off and climb into the night sky. *
<GM> * It banks and makes a 180 degree circle. *
<Nova> ((You all hear a gunshot as it flies overhead.))
<GM> ((What the fuck...ruin my ending too. ))
<FenixHawk> ((LOL @ NOVA))
<GM> ((jerkoff))
<FenixHawk> ((LOL!!!))
<Ash``> ((hehe))
<Nova> ((dont tell me i guessed right...))
<GM> ((i was gonna have him ditch the body in the treeline too))
<GM> * The plane flies off. *
<GM> ((fucker))
<GM> * Click click. *
<GM> * Johnson: "Yeah, delivery confirmed." *
<FenixHawk> "Good enough. Wheres my money?"
<GM> * "Come and get it. I'm not a delivery service....God damn unprofessionals." *
<FenixHawk> "Where? Don't you understand me?"
<GM> * "Where do you think? The club." *
<FenixHawk> "Thanks."
  • FenixHawk hangs up.
<FenixHawk> "I got us more money by the way"
<Nova> "Yeah.. IF we get it.."
<FenixHawk> "Let's go back."
<Nova> "Yeah.."
<GM> * Azreal squeels. *
  • Nova sighs at the squeal.
  • FenixHawk piles into the van.
  • Nova sits in the back of the van

. . .

<GM> * Azreal drives you back to Seattle, where you go to Club Menjivar and get paid the big bucks. *
  • FenixHawk collects it all and divies it out after taking reimbursement
  • Nova also takes his 1300 of expenses before the spliting.
<FenixHawk> ((1300? Noted))
<GM> * Fenix: Your once fully-restored Ford Mustang Cobra is totalled...maybe you can save the engine. *
<Nova> ?is my car where I left it when i come back for it?
<GM> * Yes. *
<GM> * Someone polished it and got you new rims. *
<GM> * Johnathan Myers remains in a coma, under the care of Patch's Clinic. *
<GM> * His bill is 25 grand. *
<FenixHawk> !!!!!!!!
<FenixHawk> ((You're shittin me?!))
<FenixHawk> ((Is it for real 25,000?))
<GM> * For real, 25,000¥. *
<FenixHawk> FUCK!
<GM> * John's comatose. Still in intesive care. *
<GM> * 75% survival chance. He got his fucking heart cut out, what do you expect? *
<FenixHawk> "Ok, well we are going to use Jon's portion to pay for his medicals."
<GM> * 25,000¥ is what you owe Patch, the street doc. *
<GM> * And he'll collect -- either in cash, or your organs if you don't pay. *
<Johnathan> ((I like my organs))
<GM> * So does Patch. *
<FenixHawk> We pay.
<GM> * All 25,000¥? Who fronts the 10k to cover what John's pay doesn't? *
<FenixHawk> Uhhhm, 15,000 of it
<FenixHawk> The other ten... comes... from....
<FenixHawk> The team?
<GM> * Azreal, being 15000 nuyen richer, is thinking about her new wardrobe and a new ear. *
<GM> * "Johnathan who?" *
<GM> * "Oh, him, yeah...Sucks." *
  • FenixHawk took all the money before anyone got paid their individuals.
<Nova> ((yeah, mister leader is first calculating expenses))
<GM> * "Team" is up to you all. *
<GM> * Role play it. *
<GM> * I have orders from Azreal. *
<GM> * Where are you all divying this up? *
<GM> * Patch's office? *
  • FenixHawk took the money, and will fight if anyone who wants to get it before he minuses expenses.
  • Nova stands up to the fight.
<Nova> "You really want to do this?"
<FenixHawk> "I fronted 15,000 at least for this mission to be a success. What do you think?"
<FenixHawk> "You think I am going to just bite it, lose all that money, not make a god damned dime?"
<FenixHawk> "I will die before that happens."
<Nova> "I just dont like anybody taking my money, never said I won't do it your way."
<FenixHawk> "Ok, well I have receipts, it will be fair."
<GM> * You're all in Patch's Clinic where you brought Johnathan some 'Get Well Soon' balloons and a box of chocolates which Nova has already eaten. *
<FenixHawk> "I'm not even counting the car..."
<Nova> "So, I LET you divide the money."
  • Nova smirks
<FenixHawk> "Ok."
<FenixHawk> "That works."
<Nova> "Depends.."
  • FenixHawk gives Nova his 1300 back first of all.
  • Nova takes his 13 hundred nuyen.
<GM> * Fenix, YOUR bill is 3k. *
<GM> * Nova, yours is 1k. *
<FenixHawk> ((I got all the bills mr GM))
<GM> * Azreal will need 5k for a perfect new ear. *
<FenixHawk> ((New medical bills? We already payed him 2K))
<GM> * For Allan's knee, gentlemen. *
<FenixHawk> oy...
<GM> * You guys got healed after getting fucked up in the hotel and haven't settled for that. *
<FenixHawk> "I'm not going to count personal medical expenses. Only gear and shit like that."
<FenixHawk> "Settle with Patch after you get your money."
<GM> * You and Nova sit in the empty waiting room, divying nuyen. *
<Nova> "If you say so.. you pay more than me anyway."
<GM> * Azreal's setting up Johnathan's balloons. *
  • Nova grins slightly.
<FenixHawk> "After gear, Allan's medicals, the incident at the hotel, Nova's expenses... we get 11051 each."
  • Nova considers popping the ballons with his spurs.
  • FenixHawk gives Nova a credstick with 11051¥.
<Nova> "Now what do you know, we got over 10k for all this.."
  • Nova takes it
<Nova> "Underpayment..."
<FenixHawk> "John fronted 3200 nuyen, which is going to Patch. So Patch is still owed 6800 for Johnathan's medicals. Patch, think you can find some work for him to do when he wakes up?"
<Nova> "Like mop the floors.."
  • FenixHawk gives Patch all of John's money.
<GM> * Patch: "Yeah, gimme a second." *
<GM> * Patch goes into a back office. *
<GM> * The double doors to the street open and in steps a 9 and a half foot mountain of tatooed troll muscle. His ram-like horns are very distinct and his mane of black hair it pulled back into a ponytail. He's a little beat up. *
<GM> * He looks down at both of you. *
<Nova> "SHIT!"
  • Nova looks up to him.
  • FenixHawk chuckles.
<GM> * Diablo frowns. *
<FenixHawk> "When I said 'Till the next time we meet', I didn't mean this soon."
<Nova> "I'm not in the mood either..."
<GM> * Diablo: "Business is business." *
<GM> * "Where's the kid?" *
<FenixHawk> "Gone. Still worth something to you?"
<GM> * Diablo shrugs, "He was worth something to somebody." *
<FenixHawk> "The bounty was dead or alive."
<GM> * "Where's the doc?" *
<FenixHawk> "Back office."
<GM> * He grunts. *
<GM> * "You fucked up my bike." *
<FenixHawk> "You fucked up my car."
<GM> * "That's business." *
<FenixHawk> "It is."
<GM> * He lumbers past you both, cocking an eye down at Nova and walks into the back. *
  • Nova motions a gun shot with his hand at his back.
<GM> * You're alone again. *
<FenixHawk> "I think we should go."
<Nova> "Yeah, I'm starving.."
<FenixHawk> "Let's take Az up to a hotel room. We can get room service."
  • Nova eats his last chocolate bar.
<GM> ((i expected one of you maniacs to pull a gun or something))
<FenixHawk> "Eh, Hotel room, what'ya think?"
<Nova> "I dont care, as long they have food and she," *motions to Az* "shuts up."
<FenixHawk> "I don't see her as being quiet under the circumstances I am picturing...."
<FenixHawk> ((End?))
<GM> * If you'd like. *
<GM> * Fenix: Azreal doesn't leave poor comatose John's side for your lecherous gangbang. *
  • FenixHawk curses
<GM> * You all decide to keep in contact. *
<FenixHawk> ((Just gimme karma... like 36 of it))
  • FenixHawk cries.
<Nova> ((oh, yeah, we get karma, or at least would like to))
<GM> * Fenix, you understand that was a Hand of God. *
<GM> * You're at 1 floating team karma. *
<GM> * To apply to the next campaign team you come into. *
<GM> * Hint Hint. *
<FenixHawk> "I will make this rag tag squad a TEAM!"
<Nova> "Who're you calling a rag tag?" *while eating his food*
<FenixHawk> "Did I say that outloud?
<Nova> "Yeah, but I don't care..."

. . .

<GM> * FENIX! *
<GM> * ...Shuffles numbers... *
<GM> * Awww, you lost your inst-o-karma.... *
<GM> * Sucks. *
<FenixHawk> ((It went to a good cause))
<Nova> ((to let you live cause you couldnt beat that guy))
<GM> * Fenix: You get 10 karma. *
<GM> * Smile and negate the bitching. *
<FenixHawk> ((Wooooo!))
<GM> * And remember... *
<GM> * Further insolence will be taken out on more things that are important to your characters! *
<FenixHawk> lol
<GM> * Your Mustang was an example...Be forewarned! *
<GM> * NOVA! *
<GM> * You get.... *
<GM> * 8 Karma. *
<GM> * Would be nine, but you spoiled my suprise ending, you fuck! *
<GM> * That'll teach you... *
<GM> * AZREAL! *
<GM> * She gets 7 for minimal participation. *
<GM> * JOHN! *
<GM> * ... already got his karma. *
<FenixHawk> Well done, now we just gotta think of a team name.
<FenixHawk> Shadow Knights!
<GM> * You're not a team yet. *
<FenixHawk> fine
<GM> * The newbs need a little more experience. *
<GM> * However, I do have a campaign. *
<GM> * Just looking for the right group. *
<GM> * Even though I hate elves... *
<Nova> ((f-you))
<GM> * GAME OFF! *
