Breaking the Static Veil
Details of Job (What the J Wanted Done)
Retrieve the offline Archive Core from the research station on the far side of the moon. Rescue any surviving personnel
Opposition' (What the Runners Went up Against)
Depth YES Xenosapient optimizer AI; "The living drone" (Dr. Davis); many repurposed and optimized station personnel and science team; the re-optimized remains of Runner Team One (that this team was not told about)
'Complications' (What Went Wrong)
They opened their suits slightly after arrival, exposing the entire team directly to CFD nanites. They also fired first. They very nearly trusted the AI's chosen spokes-goat, and distrusted former shadowrunner Gh0st. They decided to use the nanite infested surgical suites of Project Hephaestus, in two cases receiving highly experiemental (and contaminated) nanite-based gamma grade implants. And then, as the grand plan to handle the AI, get the goods, and get away, they Mangled the Host. While 7 deep, deep levels under the surface of the moon. In a base so terribly unsafe (but very secure) floors -2 to -7 have no stairs only multiple elevators and a tram system. Depowered by the Host crash. As was the fusion reactor containment. They did not have to face the Sundowner (Battleship class Corporate Court emergency contingency called in to handle things. They accidentally opted to carry Dr. Davis back on the outside of their ship, until he could slip into an airlock and smuggle himself to... wherever he ended up.
'Threat Level' (As Detailed in the GM Guide)
Initially Advanced Semi-Prime; Escalated
-7.5k (nanoscrub) for Meph, Darq, Sinnae. Double that for Bastion, 1c4ru5. Notoriety for Darqwolf. Gamma titanium bone lacing for Bastion. Gamma wired 1 for 1c4ru5. Deltaware for the group (some awarded, clinic access as reward). Destruction of team assets (arm, chariot). Compulsion (medium) efficiency for Bastion and 1c4ru5. Taint of Dissonance for all (clearable-at-chargen this run only). 1c4ru5 can buy ambidex at chargen. Sinnae and Meph can buy Reverberant at chargen. Darqwolf may buy BotN:Attack at chargen. Spieo was co-GM.
