The team is contacted by Pia Oliversson, who tells them that thanks to their hard work she is making better & better connections, and getting them better jobs as a result. She has a job for the Seoul’Pa Rings on offer, and the team agrees to the meet. They meet a Choson Ring rep named Sung Yi in the matrix, and get the rundown: she wants them to do the heavy lifting in a heist against a secret Kanaga-Gumi vault in Auburn, hidden under a private bank that the Yakuza uses to launder money from front businesses in the area.
They agree, deciding to take an amount negotiated upfront rather than a percentage. Caria also asks after her father, KImo Alten, knowing that the Choson work closely with Komun’Go and their allies the Dogmen. Being smugglers who operate in Salish lands, she figures they might know something. The team does some recon, and confirm the info that they were given: the bank is across the alley from a strip mall containing a number of fronts, including a bar, a hotel, and a tattoo shop, all of which have a somewhat shady rep, and are rumored to be connected to a number of disappearances in the area. This indicates that the Kanaga-Gumi may be trying to expand into organ-legging more seriously, which would eat into the Komun-Go/Dogmen dominance in that field.
They decide to hit the bank at night, due to the lower number of staff on hand. They negotiate with a Skraacha member named Gurzag to use a partially collapsed smuggling tunnel nearby as an access point, and they dig over to create a small chamber under the secret vault, where they rig up some explosives to blow out the floor, having decided that a frontal assault was too problematic. They agree to give the Skraacha a 6th share, but tell the Sung Yi that they are only paying a 10th share, as they figure no-one besides the Yak actually know what’s in the vault anyway, and this will leave them some wiggle room. They also arrange to lay low for a week after the job in a Skraacha safehouse, to avoid (immediate) retribution.
Shri goes into the Yak bar to distract and intoxicate the foot soldiers loitering there, hoping to slow their response time to the disturbance at the bank. With Seducer’s help, she succeeds, but also gets pretty messed up herself, and sleeps with 2 of the Yak LT’s in the cube hotel next door, before fleeing to the safehouse, luckily with all of her organs and parts. Munty, dressed as a city worker, manages to hide a decoy bomb in some shrubs out front of the bank before getting chased off by suspicious security. That bomb goes off a little early, due to Achilles lack of expertise, but the basement bomb works out fine, and they storm the vault, and Munty uses ultrasound to guide them through the settling dust and debris.
They get into a gunfight with 4 very surprised Yak guards, and Servaas manages to get to the vault door and seal it from the inside before any further guards can enter, assisted by some gas grenades they chuck outside first. They manage to loot all of the notable looking containers in the place while Achilles sets up 2 more bombs to cover their escape. They barely make it clear before the Yak manage to hack the door open, setting off the first bomb. Using big dog drones rented from the Skraacha, they escape down the tunnel with all the goods as Achilles detonates the 2nd bomb, further collapsing that area and ensuring that they won’t be immediately followed.
They reach the safehouse, and pay the Skraacha their 6th share using a huge pile of corp scrip that they find, before sending the tripchips, personafixes, organs, ’ware, and bribe/extortion books onto the Choson Ring. They get paid, and prepare to lay low for a while.
