The Setting

Time: March 2050
Area: Redmond
Meet Place: Ree-Ja’s clinic
Places of Interest: Neil’s lab
People of Interest: Neil Scott, Flea

The Synopsis

Ree-ja’s clinic is usually one of the safer places in the Barrens, but the last few days has seen a change in the old building as the streetdoc and her little merry gang react to the current word on the street. The violence hasn’t come too close to her turf yet, but Dr. Kim has been keeping her armed help around more often and more strictly enforcing security protocol.

The last couple of weeks have set the shadows humming with the chant of incredibly violent murders, and you’ve been unlucky enough to see a couple of the results come through Ree-Ja’s doors. The bodies’ resemblance to ground beef is so strong, your boss can’t salvage a single organ or bit of ’ware. When you, the ghouls, or another mage have done an astral sweep, you’ve all realized that there’s been no lost essence to correspond to the teeth marks. Whoever’s been gnawing on your stiffs hasn’t been doing it because of HMHVV.

A new compound is showing up in the streets of Redmond, giving junkies symptoms like cyberpsychosis and allowing them to accomplish feats that would surprise a fifth world PCP user. The drug’s finnicky, expensive, and exclusive injection method makes it an unlikely darling in the Barrens, and the street docs begin seeing strange symptoms in organs.

The Spilled Blood

  • a dead Night Hunter, potentially high on a Zydrate compound, who attacked Americana’s car.
  • some corporate Influencers pedaling zydrate as if they were cool Barrens dealers
  • some guards at a gutted ‘street clinic’ where zydrate was being stored
  • four ghouls who came looking for Nyx at her apartment, taken care of by the Dullahans

The Bread-trail

o A drug called Zydrate which induces symptoms similar to Cyberpsychosis has been making waves in Redmond around the same time that mysteriously mutilated bodies have been coming into the clinic.
o Flea emphatically warns against trying it, and exchanged his last dose and his broken injector for a bit of Astral Extermination turned Relocation
o Ree-Ja most recent autopsy turns up organs that seem off.
o Neil Scott, a tech geek and brother to a famous Street Sam called Alpha Blue agrees to look into the gun.
o On the prowl for a hangover cure, Molly and Nyx chance upon what looks like a soon-to-be Zydrate deal, under Nyx’s invisibility, they await and ambush the dealers.
o At Ree-Ja’s, the Dealer tries to call his employer, who refuses to help him. Ree-Ja has a decker trace the line.
o Assembling a team, Nyx and Molly storm the building and uncover an under construction clinic to be where the Zydrate is being stored. After a fight with the guards, some decking, and a conversation with Neil and a captive, they find out Virtus Corporation is behind Zydrate, as well as a plot to create fake street clinics to gather information on runners to sell back to other corps.
o Ree-Ja starts pulling strings to organize an attack on Virtus and their other fake clinics.

The Synopsis

When the only known recording of a late, great street musician appears in the hands of a local record company, it’s up to the runners to find out the truth.

The Spilled Blood

  • the Oni-Do in charge of Kat Akmura’s security
  • Kachu
  • Usaka and his crew

The Breadtrail

  • Dark Angel, an elf street rocker known for hating tech and corps, was rumored to have committed suicide after using a bad BTL that caused him to pour gasoline over himself and light a match. A short time later, Dynamo Blue of Xanadu Studios releases an album no one knew he’d recorded and produces a will naming her as sole holder of the rights. From Dark Angel’s anti-tech sentiments keeping him away from mods that would allow him to use BTLs in the first place to his fervent vows to never record or even play in larger venues, there’s plenty to be suspicious about. Icelady wants the rights to the songs back, and she wants whoever’s responsible for this to pay.
  • The members of Dark Angel’s band had received a forged chip accusing Icelady of making a ton of money from Xanadu, and they (especially Sheera who already hated Icelady) became convinced Dark Angel’s girlfriend had set the whole thing up. A closer look into the story and the chip revealed yaks to be the planters of the chip, and that the chip had been forged on a rare MCT brand.
  • A quick delve into Xanadu’s systems promptly showed that Icelady’s desires for Dynamo Blue’s face to be rearranged might be cathartic but would have no help finishing the run. Xanadu was simply a shell for the real plot.
  • Further investigation brought up the name Edward Crull, Dark Angel’s brother and a wagemage at MCT with yakuza loyalties. His wife, Sarah, provided ample information for the promise of adventure, fun with the street sams, and a bribe of cold hard cash.
  • Armed with the information that Dark Angel was being held, alive, by local oyabun Kat Akmura, the team arranged a meeting with a competing oyabun, Usaka, to ask for permission to finish their job. Permission was granted with a few caveats, including the death of one of her main mages.
  • The team enlisted the help of Blinkenlicht, OB1, and Racecar to commit an assault on Kat’s yacht by air. The team quickly cornered the oyabun, but the tables turned when Kat struck a deal to save her life and take out the others who might take unkindly to the team reneging on their promise.
