The team sucessfully links up with TY, who passes off the latest Knight Errant shipment to Ivan’s assembled gangers: a crate of assault rifles for each ganger car. There are 13 cars in the convoy, disguised as a funeral procession. UB! has packed a coffin with explosives in the hearse. Two other cars are empty, rigged by Ivan to detonate mines and crash through the fences. The other ten carry the team and gangers, and will carry prisoners out again.
They head out towards the spaceport, diverting off the highway at the last minute and heading across the desert towards the prison complex. Tobias hacks into the system again, gains admin access, and inserts his edited targeting program with no problems. The convoy hits the fences, and the hearse and dummy cars set off a large series of explosions from the electrified fence and minefield. The rest of the cars start piling through the hole, but get backed up in a huge dustcloud. The first car gets pretty fried going through the remains of the 2nd fence. Tobias opens all complex doors and shuts down the cameras.
The cars pour in, and spread out. The team car heads for the buildings that Marlowe and his crew are supposed to be in. Tobias announces over the comm system that the facility is being liberated, and that there are guns waiting for the prisoners in cars outside their buildings. KS and UB! take out some guards, as well as the security mage, who does some serious damage before dying, including defeating KS’s spirit friend Baelor in astral combat.
Meanwhile, inside, Rooster has just convinced one of the guards to hand over his keys when the guard is decapitated by a burst of autofire from the turret over the door. Rooster gets other prisoners organized to start unlocking themselves, and finds a mage, who he frees, figuring he’ll do some damage once he’s out of his magecollar.
KS and UB! find Marlowe and Astrid in the first building they search, free & arm them, and leave the keys with the other prisoners to free themselves. They start destroying turrets as they go, after noticing them power down again. TY decapitates both gaurd towers with RPG rounds once the turrets drop. Meanwhile, Tobias has been discovered in the matrix, takes some damage from IC, gets his connection jammed open, and has to hotdump, leaving him dazed and shaky, as well as severly injured. He sits in the car for quite a while, trying to remember how to assemble his shotgun.
KS and UB! continue to the next building, find Berokh, and once again leave the keys for the remaining prisoners. TY, Tobias, and the gangers/armed prisoners exchange fire with the remaining LS officers in the processing building (seemingly the facilities redoubt in case of assault), and manage to do some damage. The remaining turrets finish rebooting and start firing on the assaulting parties and armed prisoners.
TY links up with Rooster, and finds that he has already loosed Scratch, the mage. Rooster and Scratch load up and head out in a ganger car with other prisoners. KS, UB, and the rest of Marlowe’s team do the same. The rest of the gangers follow suit, as sirens are becoming audible in the distance. Those that don’t fit in cars begin fleeing en masse on foot. They also notice news choppers monitoring events: apparently Elton Massey alerted them as Tobias suggested.
TY and the rest manage to come up with a number of different routes back into the undercity, as well as some hideouts in the wastelands, so the surviving cars all split up and head in different directions. As the flee towards the city, the sound of distant gunfire continues and they notice an ominous explosion from the direction that one of the wasteland cars headed. The team hopes for the best….
