Aztechnology's infighting claims one of its own, sources claim
brought to you by The Daily Tail (Subsidiary of Ares Corporation)

The daughter of High ranking Aztechnology executive Eduardo Ortega was kidnapped during a concert last night, and was later found dead Commenement Bay. According to preliminary reports, Jennifer Ortega, known by the stage name Jenny O, the lead singer in a local goblin rock band known as The Foes, was kidnapped during her set last night at the Hellfire club in South Puyallup about 11:00 pm yesterday evening. One witness, who is a confirmed ex-Desert Wars veteran, is recorded as saying that the thugs were armed with prototype Aztechnology pistols that aren’t even supposed to debut for another 6 months. No other attendees were harmed in the confusion, but sketchy reports say that at least one of the kidnappers sustained some type of knife wound. Video was captured by the club cameras, but the kidnappers apparently used some type of sophisticated technology to hide their faces from the camera, as they just show up as a blur on all found footage. Even private footage we have seen from attendees’ cameras was blurred.

The body of Jenny O was found floating in Commencement bay some hours later. She was killed by two gunshots to the torso, possibly from the same types of Aztechnology pistols used during the kidnapping. Our sources inside Knight Errant confirmed that she was high on an unidentified type of street drug, probably an opiate. Traces of other drugs were found in her system as well. No reports have surfaced as to what happened to the poor girl between the time she was kidnapped and drugged and when she was dumped in the bay, but one can imagine. One can indeed.

Both Aztechnology and Jenny O’s father declined any comment.

But we, Dear Readers, surmise that this whole debacle was the result of some internecine war inside Aztechnology. Brutally torturing and murdering an Exec’s family member over some corporate faux pas perhaps? Maybe Jenny O was a corp Shadowrunner ans this was some type of reprisal killing? Who Knows? Be we won’t give up until we find out, Dear reader, we can promise you that!

Kitty Cats, Baseball Bats, and Stuffer Shacks
a prequel

I am just gonna hit the high points on this one. I just don’t have the energy to write a narrative.

The runners were asked to go to a local bar to hear about some possible job opportunities.. When they expressed a little bit of concerns over killing strangers for money, they were put into contact with a pawn shop proprietor and supposedly former grifter named Johnny Pipes. Via a phone call, Pipes assured them that he would pay them well for a simple ride. He needed to deliver an item from his shop to a residence in Auburn. Easy.

A little legwork from Kenzo revealed that the Red Hot Nukes (Spiked Wheels, now) were active in the area and had recently been more aggressive than usual. Kenzo had his biker gang buddy arrange a little distraction to keep the Wheels busy just in case.

The party arrived at Pipe’s Pawn Palace and he was decidedly unprofessional. High on drugs and bedraggled, he took his time getting ready. He offered the guys free flare compensation sunglasses and stim-patched drugs for no reason, and showed them the item to be delivered. An animatronic Himalayan cat.

Half way through the delivery drive, and about half a mile South of Kenzo’s distraction (which was a drive by rock pelting of some idling Spike Wheels Bikers, who promptly caused a ruckus), Pipes declared he needed to puke and had the team pull into a Stuffer Shack, which had an inordinate number of orks hanging around nearby. A few minutes later an explosion of purple foam filled the Shack, followed by intense strobe lights that continued for the next several minutes. The crew understandably were reluctant to go inside and investigate what had happened to the unstable Pipes, until a Spirit summoned by Piped persuaded them to go and and help by offering them more cash.

They rushed into the strobe-lit melee to see a maniacally giggling Pipes fleeing a gang of orks and a massive, furious, bat-chuck wielding troll. (The crew would later deduce that the cat had actually been some type of explosive, foam emitting, flash-pack device) Kenzo rushed the troll and beat on her for a LONG time. TJ-Batuman-Reaper meleed an ork who had taken a woman hostage, and succeeded saving her life. Carson waded into the melee and found out that when it comes to real, professional, shadowrunning, a tire iron is probably not the best go-to weapon for serious fighting. He did bash a fallen ork into submission, though. The massive amount of glitches rolled by everyone certainly didn’t help. Pipes wandered about, blasting orks and bystanders alike with whatever spells seemed handy, while slapping drug patches on every once in awhile.

The troll was finally knocked unconscious by Kenzo, with some help from Carson and a stun bolt from Pipes, who knocked himself out in the process of casting the spell. Kenzo slapped him awake and got him to the vehicle, where he admitted that killing the troll was the actual job, and tripled the 500 nuyen per person price he originally promised. The gang, on top of their pay and nifty glasses, received some trauma patches and 1,500 nuyen each. They also received the ashamed bartender as a level 1/1 contact

Welcome to your campaign!
A blog for your campaign

Wondering how to get started? Here are a few tips:

1. Invite your players

Invite them with either their email address or their Obsidian Portal username.

2. Edit your home page

Make a few changes to the home page and give people an idea of what your campaign is about. That will let people know you’re serious and not just playing with the system.

3. Choose a theme

If you want to set a specific mood for your campaign, we have several backgrounds to choose from. Accentuate it by creating a top banner image.

4. Create some NPCs

Characters form the core of every campaign, so take a few minutes to list out the major NPCs in your campaign.

A quick tip: The “+” icon in the top right of every section is how to add a new item, whether it’s a new character or adventure log post, or anything else.

5. Write your first Adventure Log post

The adventure log is where you list the sessions and adventures your party has been on, but for now, we suggest doing a very light “story so far” post. Just give a brief overview of what the party has done up to this point. After each future session, create a new post detailing that night’s adventures.

One final tip: Don’t stress about making your Obsidian Portal campaign look perfect. Instead, just make it work for you and your group. If everyone is having fun, then you’re using Obsidian Portal exactly as it was designed, even if your adventure log isn’t always up to date or your characters don’t all have portrait pictures.

That’s it! The rest is up to your and your players.
