Mage Hunting part 2
  • Found out the Mage was going to meet in the Rat’s Nest
  • got round the difficulty of check points by heading out in the back of a garbeg drone.
  • On leaving the drone was attacked by a hoard of scavengers and plague rats. Easily fended them off. (Other than the small bit of Shade trying complicated acobatics and throwing her smart goggles down a pit.)
  • The target mage turned out to be meeting a whole tribe of Rat Skins that turned up in an open toped lorry over thirty of them and lots of rats some the size of lions.
  • What they were selling to the mage was a toxic elemental in a bottle. For assassination that’s akin to using a nuke.
  • The meet was happening in the Colosseum of Steel
  • The crew desisded that there was little chance on taking on the whole mass of Rats and there was no way that the Mage should be allowed that bottle, or anyone else for that matter. Desisding that this was the best place for such things to be reliased Wishlist shot the bottle on the way out.
  • Runing like hell, triping falling and scabling as a huge 50 meter tall monster formed it self out of the black oze from the bottel and the scape metal of the Colossem. Its Burning green eyes radiated pure malice.
  • More Runing
  • Run some More.

Mage Hunting

The crew is called in for another job.

The job is to track down a mage and get information from them in what ever means works.
The mage is meant to be a good stealth based mage so could be a useful person to hire given the crews stealth mage is currently disposed still working on the mission from lay Laying the foundations

They have been tracked to a B zone, and that means security and cops. The building security is run by Building Security Limited one of the most budget rent a cop / security firms in existence. The building is managed by Housing Inc another cheap company.

The matrix security of both is laughable but they know it so they keep a lot of their stuff off line.

It turns out the subcontract their key cards to another company. which also has poor security so an easy mark for a good hacker, the biggest thing in these groups favour is they are too small to be wroth messing with.

The apparent building is name Apple Tree Apartments apparently they once had an apple tree in the garden outside. That has now been replaced with a wall and a few auto turrets to keep the place safe. The Building has an underground car park and that is the main entrance the the building. Its dose not look like many if anyone just walk in form the street.

Will the crew dressed in corp grade cloths and now with newly printed and elivered valid key cards they playes head out.

With out working SINs thay can not get in to the right distirct of the citty so a bitt of money wheels contacts in the ork underground sorts that out.

The ork guild is riding one of the bikes you took as loot from the biker bandits defeated outside the devil ant contraimet zone.

11:30pm

So drive up to bulding us key cards etc it all works fine., Its just before shift change for the gaurds so they are tired and not payying too much attention. Yet the do manage to look like they are “good” security staff very quickly transforming form board slubs to polight secuity in the blink of an eye,

The securiy guards dont notice anything is up and they crew impression of corps back form a leate meating adds to thri cover

All the apareamtnes have all modon comfuts, many servis drones and the like. A rich place to stay.

have a corner room on floor 43 and 4 normal rooms adjacent turned in to it that has been converted to and sweet for co works to linv in.

security stuuff

the mages floor is a criminal run thing with vbrofle and fake security

There internal walls have been rearanged by hand by the look of thing, they lack the neatness and sturdyness of when the drones do it.

It a maze of illisite deseres both flesh and chemecal distractions are hawked to anyone passing. Many of the corp wage slaves living in the building use this floor as thier primary form of entiament.

Alogn the way the crew meet up meet up with an ork that is willing to help for a fee. helps out a little bit but not much. gets a cred stick with pocket change on seems happy enough with it.

The mage
is a altheltic male human, ablivus to the world in boxers and a teeshirt a sim sense headset on compley ablivisu to the world. He seems unremarkible.

His gear is more intresting.
A custom fitted mil spec steal suit that hides from IR, thoemr grapg is radar ands sound dampning. Very expensive but can only be used by the perosn it is made for. So worthless as loot. It looks well used and could use being repalced.
Grapple lanucher, flashbags, radio allarmclocks, a hammer, glass cutter, graple lancher etc.
Not a single weapon.

The mage goes by the name of Cloaker seems to be a complete coward

After he rellises that they are not just here becuase of his rent payment. he first veirw it as a test refusing to give out infomation as proff he is trust worthy. A few veiled and not so veiled treats quickly change his mind.

He seem to be undeicaled with limited knowledge of anything but he dos eknow some useful things.

Lady Griffon also known as the High Bitch lives in the three floor penthouse and has a pet griffon that she uses to eat people that goe aginast her. She has aparently huandrads of gaurds and at least 8 with her at all times.
All rent from the black floor goese to her and most people pay it by doing work for her. Those that work fo her have a small chip in their arms that acts as ID. Letting them though doors and decripting messages for them.

Its from her that he got his job to help the main target the unknown mage.

Facts on the Unknown Mage

  • Seemed to be able to become slight imcomporal (Maybe stealth?)
  • Can levatate and fly
  • Might be a mind mage
  • dresses like a nija in body armour, black warps, black cloths, black armour and black cloack.
  • Had esome strange metal symbols on the armour that Cloaker did not resocnise as anything
  • was talking to aminals that seem to be acting smart (so likly either controles, shapeshifters, spirts etc)
  • The animals seemed to be the ones using the tools.
  • the Mage looked though the fiberopticcable that had been place in the hoel draw in the wall
  • Left Cloaker to escape on his own.
  • Cloaker is expecting a job at some point to help him finish what he started.

So its a case of weighting till the call come in stuck in luxcare accomidation.
