We started out the night with the troll trying to take out his enemy. He got the ork to help him put some explosives and a radio detonator on the guy's car.|
Meanwhile, the (hot female) rigger was trying to get close to said enemy, to aid the troll. But never said anything to anyone about it.
The troll and ork watch as the valet pulls the car up to the club. The enemy walks out the front doors... with the rigger. Oh shit. Drive! The ork races down the street. The troll leans out the car window with an assault rifle, intending to shoot the guy, to hopefully prevent the rigger from getting into the explosive-laden car. He rolls a critical glitch. More dice rolling ensues, and the rigger is hit. She takes two boxes - hit in the shoulder. Perception test - she recognizes the troll.
Several days later we show up for a meet, and head out on the mission. Troll tries to apologize for it, but she's not having it. Goes VR, turns off communication.
Okay, here's our plan. We need to clear the Yakuza security guards from the late night gym. I levitate the ork up to the windows on the second floor. He opens fire, while the rest of us break in the front and run upstairs to attack them. Ok, go! Ork shoots at the mage (chooses this target by pure luck) and misses. He very shortly fills in all his boxes to a mana bolt. I bring him down and the rigger stabilizes him while the rest of us go upstairs. We had control of a gun drone, and took out one bad guy before they shot it up. Troll runs into the room (armor jacket and gyro-mounted MMG) and takes out the mage before taking damage from four SMG's and a mana bolt (I rolled one hit on the eight dice of my edged counterspelling test). Three boxes into overflow.
The physad goes in the room under invisibility.
I levitate the troll's body out of the line of fire and call the rigger up for first aid. Now... as a player, I knew that she might not want to help the dying troll. As a character, I had no idea of the previous conflict. She goes past me up the stairs, pulls out a machine pistol and finishes off the troll. I pick up the troll-corpse and try to smear her down the stairs with it. I roll a sort of attack test, and succeed with a glitch. I drop it on her and they both end up on top of me. I end the rigger with a mana bolt.
The physad, using his missile master powers, wins a war of attrition with the Yaks who can't see him. We call the Johnson, and we have to hold the place for ten minutes until his guys can get there. We put the bodies in the hacker's truck and loot all the corpses for comms and foci. We leave in the truck, and the technomancer heads out in his own truck. We pick up our pay. We never see the technomancer again.
I don't really need to list out the stupidity, do I? That would take too much time, anyway. *sigh*. The only competent parts were the physad, and the matrix action which took care of three drones.
The technomancer? He was dwarf with a strong hatred for humans. He was controlling the gun drone on the first floor. He saw me (human mage) standing at the bottom of the stairs, casting spells up. A dead troll and an elf come down the stairs, and then I cast a force ten spell and the elf died. The player said he almost shot me at that moment. Later, he realized that I was also somewhat responsible for the ork being taken out. So when it was all over, the humans were unscathed and the metas were dead. Except for the ork, who only *almost* died. And that ork hated prejudiced people. So the dwarf took his money and ran.
