So the party makes their way thru the sewers to the undercity, and holes up in Fat Carl’s to recuperate. April heads home and checks in at work, and Scrounge makes contact with Ango to set up a meet to exchange the data Remus stole for some cold, hard nuyen. actually, probably credchips and direct deposits. but, you know, still money. Barry is resting upstairs under the care of a gang medic, and eating a bunch of Fat Carl’s famous subs, so he recovers fairly fast-being a troll doesn’t hurt either.
Unfortunately, when Scrounge gets ahold of Ango, things seem a bit off, as Ango offers to meet them at a different site than planned, and tells Scrounge he better bring the whole party, so that Ango can check them out. Scrounge senses somethings up, and arranges the meet for the next evening, in the undercity warehouse district. He calls April, and she decides to scout out the meet site and look for good sniping points/side entrances/etc.
The next night, Barry, Remus, and Scrounge hire a Prometheus cab and ride to the meet. April travels separately and begins sneaking onto the roof and into a vent system she noticed earlier. Barry, somewhat impatient to set off the trap, heads straight thru the front door before April is set up. Sure enough, it looks like someone got ahold of Ango before Scrounge got in touch-he’s tied to a chair, with some heavily armored goons taking cover behind some crates on either side, and slight, unassuming man directly behind him.
The slight man speaks up and suggests that the party has stolen something from his employers, and that they demand it’s return, along with the scientist. not waiting to hear out the rest of his offer, Barry and Remus open fire, and Scrounge summons a spirit. April continues to sneak down the vents until she reaches a grate, which she cuts out and lets drop. The party quickly drops the first two guards, but the slight man seems to slip thru space and quickly gets up close and personal, hitting Remus with deadly force with his bare hands.
Fortunately, april is able to line up a sniper shot, and quickly takes him down. however, she doesn’t go unnoticed as another guard with a heavy machine gun opens fire from cover and ventilates her position, nearly killing her. Barry quickly dispatches this final guard with a grenade, and the party frees Ango, much to his relief. He explains that W-Y must of caught wind of his looking for a buyer, and hired the goon squad to foul the deal. However, he quickly finds an interested client and offloads the data, which is good, since April desperately needs some very expensive hospitalization….but at least they got paid.
Next time, the party meets an exciting new undercity character….
