- 0015 Enter location #1 - spot case, try to grab it with magic
-> backlash -> case dislodged -> heads down the sewers
at 25-30 MPH. Team leaves location and follows.
- 0040 Team gets ahead of case and tries intercept it at location
#2 - this location is far more toxic and, due to some comically
bad rolling, Arrow nearly dies in the sewage and Taro takes
a good chunk of damage too. Team retreats.
- While trying to get ahead of it and decide what to do, the
- The case moves counter to the flow of the sewer and in other
directions at ~3 MPH for a few minutes, then stops.
- 0050 Location #3 - team has left area that they had a block
map for. They venture into the sewer. Ambushed by 10 members
of a pack of 14 Ghouls, one is a Mage. Titus knocked out by
a powerful Stun Bolt. They neutralize the Ghouls and retrieve
the case. The case is boobytrapped and they suffer a grenade
blast at close range in a small enclosed chamber. The last 4
Ghouls then try to ambush them, but the team handily dispatches
them, with the aid of Fifi's City Spirit. When they finally
get back to the manhole, there is a dangerous looking guy with
an SMG waiting for them. When the first person pops their head
out, Fifi, he has a gun pointed at her. He demands the case.
She hands it to him and then tries to Stun Bolt him. He gets
the drop on her and shoots her with a burst, which is just enough
to take her to Deadly and "splash" into the sewage
she goes. Taro pops up and blasts with his autocannon, immobilizing
the vehicle. The guy opens the door and blasts at him. Taro
goes one box past deadly and "splash" into the sewage.
Finally, Arrow pops up and takes the guy out, thanks in part
to the fact that she is wearing enough armor to get Ballistic
7 protection and has her Body boosted magically. In the end,
Titus was knocked out, and the rest of the team is almost killed
- Taro with one box of over a "deadly" wound, Fifi
at "deadly" wound, and Arrow a few boxes shy of "deadly".
- 0115 - Team heads to Silver's home (contact of Arrow) for
healing. Silver agrees to heal the team only if they agree to
do a week of volunteer work at an orphanage.
