Well that's exciting though Ginji. Something was up but he couldn't tell what exactly; that guy from the apartment maybe? He wasn't going to get all crazy about it. His very nature, just like in the Matrix, was to simply improvise. All the plans he made always ended up changing anyway.
He got up and followed the pack. An intriguing bunch, he even thought the Elf was one of the gang. Well, let's not put all suits in the same dirty basket
He passed the guard by the door and noded: Spasibo!. One third of his Russian vocabulary used already...

Andy was relieved by the fact, that the others in fact joined him and he wasn't the only one stupid enough to walk into an obvious trap.

He looked for a place to sit and made himself comfortable, making sure his bag was always in reach of his hands.

As you walk into the room the obvious change of decor is breathtaking, from the peeling wallpaper and stained walls and floors of the main restaurant, you have stepped into a lavish room. The immaculate half walnut paneled brick walls are lit in dim candle light from ornate fittings. A fire burns on the far side of the large antique table sitting in the middle of the room, the table is lit by a simple but stylish down light . Old worn leather chairs sit in from of the fire and one is occupied by the ork bodyguard with his feet kicked up on a side table. He leans forward and lights up a big fat stogie and starts muttering incomprehensibly to himself.  The human bodyguard is stood leaning against the other chair just over Boris' right shoulder.

Boris the dwarf Johnson is sat on the far side of the table eating a bowl of goulash. that has obviously been sat waiting for him and must be stone cold by now. As Boris hurriedly finishes his bowl of food and casually pushes it to one side. he gestures to the four empty chair in front you.

Please take a seat gentlemen,

I appreciate you will have lots of questions so please let me try and give you some answers....


Without waiting for you to take seat he continues on ....

Well i'll start with the simple introduction, My name is Boris.
I work for Evo BioMed operating out of the arcology in this district as a human resources manger....

One of our assets didn't appear at work a week ago, following procedure we awaited contact from the assets handler.

The handler has since failed to report... and can not be contacted.

The job is simple locate and return the asset alive!
There will be a bonus if you can find out any information on the handler.

For your services you will each be paid 8,000 ¥

If the job interests you we can talk more if not the door is that way and  i wish you a good evening.

Frank gets in and takes a seat at Boris's request. He unbuttons his greatcoat and makes himself comfortable while listening to the run's details. He thought it odd that Boris gave so many details about his identity but chose not to pursue it any further for now.

"Sounds reasonable, you definitely got me interested, Boris" answers Frank. He quickly follows up with "We will have to talk a bit more about payment though. But until then, you can consider me a party in this."

Miner took a seat directly next to the Elf with the greatcoat at Boris's request. Miner placed his left arm on the table and kept his right tucked down by his lap in close reach to his Government 2066 as he listened into the run details.

Jeez.... spill your guts onto the table while you introduce yourself Boris.

Miner didn't enjoy the fact Boris was so open. He was either new at this or really didn't give two shits about his life or career.

So just a simple search and return op. The money's alright and it seems the Elf can dig out some more. Why the hell not!

"You got yourself a second man Boris," Miner said right after the Elf finished speaking.

Kyo could really do with 8,000 ¥ right now. And it didn't matter what he had to do for it actually. Find some creature and its handler was even better. Information retrieval was his specialty; follow the flow of the Matrix and the right info will show up.

Even if he had already agreed to it - not even bothered with what danger laid behind the whole story - Kyo didn't say a word. He looked around focused on the signals in this room, looking for some sort of white noise generator or jammer. If someone outside was spying on who get in, and out, they might as well have some audio listening device planted in or pointing at the room.

Sorry to interrupt... but before more sensitive information is revealed, can you confirm this room is safe from privy ears? Don't want to be the one pointing finger at anyone, but those in the front apartment across the street are curious enough about who's getting in the restaurant that I wouldn't be surprised they'd also be interested in what is being said inside.That being said, i'm in too.

He lean toward the bold guy that will possibly soon become a fellow runner. And if they are listening, I'd love to see their face right now.

Miner's eyes shifted over to man or was it a boy that just spoke.

Oh so there was somebody up to no good... again... in that apartment across the street.

Miner leaned in towards the young man, "I would too! They're probably busy cursing out loud and trying to pack up gear before they become the new paint job of the place." He then looked over to Boris, "I'm no interior decorator but I think the color red inside that apartment would look fantastic. I could even head over there and do it myself."

If they heard that they better be packing a lot faster.

"If a kid runner can spot them so easily, there's no way these guys haven't spotted them long before" thought Frank. "People possibly listening in on this conversation, Boris giving everything short of his SIN info..." A strange theory was forming in his mind but he decided to keep it to himself for now. He decided to let Boris address the Asian's comment and see how things would evolve.

Andy was the first one in the room and the first one to sit.

I'm in.

Andy kept as much as possible to himself, he couldn't afford to be as open as the others (if any of it was true) and couldn't lie reliably enough to tell a story that'ld fit theirs.

Look kid, what kind of fool do you take me for! I funded Orlov's dream so i could have these such meeting in 'PRIVATE' Those petty fool across the street have no idea what they are doing.

The deal I brokered between Orlov and the Vory makes sure of that. They own this town everything in this town even the police there are only a few foolish officials who believe otherwise! oh and the FSB of course and they wouldn't be interested in a place like this!


He seems very offended by Kyo's comments. His voice is strong with rage as he spits his words at you. But this fades with a hint of pride as he starts talking about the deal with Orlov and how he helped his dream. This place is obviously means more  to him that he wants to show. It would also seem that the Vory connection to this place is stronger than the rumors you first hear suggested.

Right then, the job as i said earlier is to find our asset. Everything you should need to know is in here. We need him returned to us in 96 hours. If he isn't lets just my my employers don't take kindly to failure and neither do I.

He tosses an old fashioned paper file out onto the table.
The paper file contains a file photo and a rather in depth history of his movements for his entire duration with the company. It advises that the project he's working on is developing  a new radiation drug.

The assets name is Dr. Stainton Fields, he was employed by SK after they funded his doctoral research project.  Evo head hunted him a few years later and he has been working at the Tolskoi arcology since.

So what say you fellas?

Andy waits for a reply then he turns to the others

Frank doesn't let any emotion show when Boris retorts, but he is somewhat amused. "The kid got his first lesson in meetings" he thinks, looking at how Ginji reacts.

Once Boris hands them the folder, Frank quickly leafs through it and scans it for the main points. Upon reading the Evo arcology and the Tolskoi district, his face purposely sours and Frank lets out a soft "Ohh."

He then shifts his attention to Boris and tells him "I appreciate you're a man with great influence, Boris, and I certainly know doing business with you has its own advantages, but Evo is hot right now and Tolskoi is an especially hot potato at the moment. I would respectfully ask for ¥12,000 a piece for this kind of work, and possibly a bonus if we complete things earlier?"

[spoiler]Charisma 7 + Influence Group 4 + Trustworthy 1 + Kinesics 2 (14d6.hits(5)=5) 5 hits, no glitches and I will spend one edge to reroll failures. Edge to reroll failures (9d6.hits(5)=2) So that's 7 hits total, no glitches.[/spoiler]

The kid raised a good question... chill out Boris.

Miner takes a look over the folder and listens into Elf.

"Oh... that little fiasco." Miner says in a mumbling tone while his nose is in the folder.

Miner looks over to the big man that just introduced himself. Something seemed off about him but Miner couldn't put his finger on it.

"I'm your weapon spec, driver, and demo expert. Also I can patch somebody up but don't expect me to reattach a limb or two." Miner said without lifting his eyes from the folder.

Kyo felt like a kid who had done wrongly and got a sermon from his dad. If he had care just a bit about it maybe he could have turned red a little. But in this case, he just bit his lower lips and shut his mouth. Whatever, 間抜け (stupid) he thought.

He didn't want to point finger but he did touch a sensitive button on the Dwarf.

The big human was the first to speak. Upon hearing his question, Kyo simply raised his hand but remained quiet. The man didn't fit the picture he had in his mind of magicians and hearing him talk about heavy weapons first kind of blew it apart even more, but then again Kyo was known to watch too much Trids on his spare time. Having to team up with an Awaken was pretty awesome though.

Well you do have everything we've got on him...

As you look through the file you'll notice that he's become increasingly more disturbed, he's having delusions and is becoming increasingly more paranoid.
He knows our agents and our methods too well, he could avoid them indefinitely.

So we are using a different tack.

Make no mistake this is not an easy task that lies before you. I can agree to 10k each but no more. Contact me when you have him and i will arrange payment. My details are in the file. In the mean time Orlov will get you whatever you want. have a good evening


Boris stands and is escorted out by his guards.
