The team was gathered together and chauffeur driven to the Space Needle restaurant, The Eye of the Needle. There they met with Mr Walker who represented Biogene. The team was offered the job of stealing a sample of biotechnology from an underground Aztechnology research facility.
No sooner had the team accepted the job offer then they were told that they must perform the run that very night. The team was handed over to Mr Holmes who would be their driver for the night. Holmes drove them to a part of the Seattle sewer network from which they would infiltrate the facility with the aid of some plasteel melting spray.
The team made their way through the sewer and infiltrated the facility with little difficulty. The facility was in fact in two parts and the team had entered the Beta section. Access to Alpha section was sealed off by a heavy pressure door which could only be opened from within Alpha. The Beta section was in a lockdown state and signs of combat were found throughout the complex. After much searching and encounters with insane staff members and genetic abominations, the team located the data and bio sample and returned to the sewers. The data and sample was for a Metagene virus, capable of making new metahumans by combining DNA from different creatures.
Upon exiting the sewer system the team realised that Mr Holmes had disappeared from the designated rendezvous point. The van had been left behind and the team used it to reach the designated meeting spot to handover the data and sample.
The team reached the wharf where the drop off was to take place but the contact was an obvious impostor. The impostor had brought along friends who were revealed to be members of the racist terrorist organisation, Alamos 20000. It was soon revealed that Alamos 20000 wanted the data for their own nefarious purposes, preaching a pure world of humanity and a purging of the other races. Before the team could act, an assault helicopter and several APCs bearing Aztechnology insignia arrived. The helicopter fired upon the team and they took cover in a nearby warehouse.
The team discovered a couple of ork children hiding in the warehouse and they offered to take the team down a trapdoor and to safety. Having no other option, the team descended into the sewers again. The team eventually arrived at an underground shopping mall, Wilhem Park.
The team met an elderly ork (38 years old!) Alan Bronston. Alan told the tale of the Night of Rage where hundreds of metahumans were burned to death in 2039. Wilhem Park had become a home to a vast community of orks as a result of that fateful night.
Ghost was taken away by the orks when it was revealed that he was wearing a tracking device provided by the Alamos 20000. Alan assured the team that no harm would come to Ghost and that he would help Ghost to escape the hold the Alamos had over him.
In return Alan requested that the team return to the Aztechnology facility to rescue orks captured for experimentation and to also extract Dr Carole Owens from her employment with Aztechnology. Bronston suggested that Biogene would be more than happy to employ someone of Dr Owens’ talents. Bronston also claimed that he would arrange a new meet up with Biogene so the team could deliver the Aztechnology data and complete their contract.
The team entered Alpha complex and, with minimum resistance, eventually located Dr Owens. The team also liberated some ork captives and were able to sneak out of the facility without raising the alarm.
Back at Wilhem Park, the team witnessed a confrontation between Bronston and Owens as Bronston accused the doctor of profiting from the suffering of her former home. It seems that Owens had worked with Bronston in the past and together they had developed the Metagene research, but Owens had left Wilhem Park in order to work with Aztechnology and profit from her work.
The team convinced Bronston not to kill Owens and agreed to sell her to Biogene. The team then moved on to the safehouse where Bronston had arranged a meet up with Biogene. Upon arrival it seemed that the team had missed a firefight between Alamos 20000 and Biogene’s hired security force, Knight Errant. The Alamos 2000 had lost that fight. It appeared that Holmes had been killed by Mr Walker during the fight, confirming earlier suspicions that it was Holmes who had probably tipped off Alamos 20000 to the earlier meeting place.
Mr Walker was happy to receive the Metagene data and to purchase the services of Dr Owens. He left a reasonably happy man.
- The Eye of the Needle restaurant
- Wilhem Park
- Ghost was not reunited with the team, his current whereabouts are unknown.
- Enigma, under guidance from Pangea, discovered she possessed a powerful weapon focus. When the focus was activated it seemingly awakened a spirit called Morven who had apparently been bound to the weapon by Enigma.
- Lebowski used part of his payment to arrange for a shipment of medical supplies and food to be delivered to Wilhem Park at a future point.
