[5:21:05 PM] Jeff Davies: @roseline:you think it could be a floor sensor.
[5:21:19 PM] Bluestreak: [Pressure pad? But, why just throw an area rug over? It looks like the bought it from a native guy out of the back of a van…]
[5:21:33 PM] Jacob Harris: [Its probably a floor sensor, its way too out of place]
[5:22:18 PM] Aoife Strix: [Well, a rug both can both hide the sensor while keeping employees in the know from stepping on it by accident]
[5:22:35 PM] Bluestreak: [Ok then, no one wipe your feet.]

[5:25:09 PM] Jeff Davies: The rug/pressure pad starts at the begininng of the hallway just before the Manager’s office and extends all the way down to the other end. It doesn’t look like there is anyway to walk around it.

[5:33:09 PM] Jacob Harris: Jacob Harris moves up to the door [So when this door electrocutes me, im blaming you] she sends to bluestreak, before placing her hand on the door and attempting to carefully open it.

[5:45:34 PM] Bluestreak: Bluestreak sends the other drone into the stairwell, not getting flanked.
[5:47:39 PM] Jeff Davies: A guard walks out from around the corner. He’s dressed in the security greens and has a chrome cyber arm. In his hand is a small black device (like a key fab) He doesn’t notice any of you.

[5:49:35 PM] Bluestreak: [I wonder if the fob disarms the plate? Let’s see if he comes down here.]

Aoife your picking is now successful.

[6:04:42 PM] * Jeff Davies sent Shadow run 1 office.png *
[6:09:24 PM] Jeff Davies: The inside of the managers office is very 1990’s chic. fake office tree in the corner. Old woodendesk and plastic swivel chair behind it. You rifle through the desk and find a small steel lockbox.
[6:10:17 PM] Aoife Strix: Aoife Strix sets the lockbox down on the desk and starts with the lockpicking.
[6:10:36 PM] Aoife Strix: Agility+Lockpicking: 3 hits
[6:10:38 PM] Bluestreak: Bluestreak covers the door and monitor’s the hallway.
[6:11:33 PM] Jeff Davies: @Aoife: You immediatly realize that this lock is much more complcated and not something you’ll be able to do hear. Maybe not at all at your current skill level.
[6:11:36 PM] Roseline Blackwater: Roseline Blackwater Sits down in the swivel chair and turns in circles while waiting for Aoife to do her thing.
[6:13:02 PM] Bluestreak: Bluestreak takes the fob and looks for radios and panic buttons.

You hear some one talking over the guards comm ear buds (looks like he had the volume turned up and wasn’t wearing them in his ears).

Guard on com: Sit Rep, Jules?
[6:15:47 PM] Bluestreak: [Fart noise?]
[6:16:03 PM] Aoife Strix: [The box ain’t budging chummers. Don’t think I can pull this one]
[6:16:25 PM] Roseline Blackwater: [We can take it with us, its not the main job, what do we do about Jules here?]
[6:16:41 PM] Bluestreak: [Bag it, we need to answer this com. What do you think his guy sounds like?]
[6:17:04 PM] Jeff Davies: Guard on com: Get your check over with.You gotta get back here man this is one hell of match. Screamers are having one hell of a time.

[6:18:58 PM] Bluestreak: Bluestreak Puts the ear bud in the guard’s ear. Shows him his gun and places it against his temple. Then holds the radio by the guard’s mouth and pulls the socks out.

[6:24:02 PM] Jeff Davies: Fairweather: So can we get through to tech?
[6:24:20 PM] Roseline Blackwater: [He didnt set it off with his fob, presumably it disables it]
[6:24:35 PM] Roseline Blackwater: [Probably should have asked him about that.] Rose shrugs
[6:25:17 PM] Bluestreak: Bluestreak takes the fob back. [I think we use this. Hold on, I’ll look up the manual.] Computer + Datasearch 3
[6:26:13 PM] Jeff Davies: Results: You find a manual for The FLOORJET 3000 the latest in security technology.
[6:26:33 PM] Bluestreak: Do you push the button, or does it work on proximity?
[6:28:39 PM] Jeff Davies: a simple pressure pad that can be linked up or modded to fit muliple security purposes. It can use a fob to allow passage of a sinlge person through. press the button once before stepping on and all sensors on the pad within 14ft of the fob will allow you through.
[6:29:24 PM] Bluestreak: How do you reset/disable it completely?
[6:31:55 PM | Edited 6:32:59 PM] Jeff Davies: Fairweather: Got to it on the matrix. Damn thing was hidden like ninja. It looks like it can be removed/disabled but you need to enter sequence code.
[6:34:35 PM] Bluestreak: [Ok, here’s the plan. We work our way down the hallway using the side spaces. Throw the fob to the next person and make our way to tech.]
[6:36:08 PM | Edited 6:36:14 PM] Bluestreak: Bluestreak Looks up a moment. [It couldn’t be this easy.] Looks up the default code. Enters it.

[7:08:03 PM] Bluestreak: Bluestreak tosses a thermal smoke grenade down the hall toward the guards.

Hearing Zok’s comment though, the dumb, playful attitude slips away as she rolls her eyes with a sneer. “Yes, because that sounds like a completely solid and logical plan. Go ahead; let’s see what happens.”
[8:46:53 PM] Aoife Strix: “How strong is your cyberarm Zok?”
[8:47:03 PM | Edited 8:47:16 PM] Zok: “Pretty strong. Like, better than Ork strong”
[8:47:30 PM] Aoife Strix: “Might be worth a shot then. My other bright idea is melting the lock.”
[8:48:08 PM] Zok: “I mean, I’m good at the guns thing. Isn’t someone supposed to be good at the ninja shit?”
[8:48:27 PM] Zok: “Then again our Johnson was kind of a weirdo”
[8:48:52 PM] Aoife Strix: “Most of the locks I picked were cheap dive shit in Barrens apartment complexes. This is a bit more complex.”
[8:49:24 PM] Zok: “What about one of those auto-thingies”
[8:49:57 PM] Aoife Strix: “Don’t got one meself. If you’ve got one on you I could try it.”
[8:50:12 PM] Zok: “Nah. But I got a guy.”
[8:50:51 PM] Aoife Strix: “Tell me about this guy.”
[8:51:19 PM] Zok: “I dunno, he’s a guy. He sell guns and shit. Don’t ask no questions”
[8:51:41 PM] Zok: “I mean I think he’s an elf or something, but I never seen his ears”
[8:52:05 PM] Levan Kohris: “An elf or something?”
[8:52:08 PM] Levan Kohris: T^T
[8:52:18 PM] Aoife Strix: “You think he’s got a autopicker on short notice? Or a wielding torch?”
[8:56:27 PM] Zok: “I’ll give him a call”
[8:56:49 PM] Zok: Zok disengages his comlink from the network and steps off to the side
[8:58:40 PM] Zok: “Pretty good Mad Marty. How’re you? Still… Mad?”
[8:59:28 PM] Zok: “Haha. Was wondering if you had some gear. It’s short notice but I’m buying if you’ve got it.”
[8:59:52 PM] Aoife Strix: “Mad Marty? Sounds like a trustworthy guy.” Aoife mumbles this in the corner as she deposits ash from her cigarette into a plastic bag from her pocket.
[9:00:51 PM] Zok: “Uh. No.”
[9:00:58 PM] Zok: Zok looks a bit perplexed
[9:02:26 PM | Edited 9:02:32 PM] Zok: “Rokin.” He relaxes a bit
[9:02:39 PM] Zok: " I need a pretty decent Autopicker. Two if you’ve got em"
[9:03:24 PM] Zok: “Fuck yeah!”
[9:03:45 PM] Zok: “Be there in a bit”
[9:04:04 PM] Zok: Zok turns around to the group
[9:04:12 PM] Zok: “He’s got em.”
[9:04:22 PM] Dylan Montgomery: [How soon?]
[9:04:40 PM] Zok: Zok reconnects to the network
[9:04:44 PM] Dylan Montgomery: [Someon ask Zok how soon, he cut me off.]
[9:04:52 PM] Dylan Montgomery: [Oh, there we go.]
[9:04:59 PM | Edited 9:05:17 PM] Zok: [Hey. I can grab em now.]
[9:06:08 PM] Zok: [I can be back here in about 2 hours]
[9:07:17 PM | Edited 9:07:21 PM] Zok: [I’m picking up some beer and longhaul on the way if anyone wants me to bring em back some]
[9:08:12 PM] Aoife Strix: [Grab me some whiskey and stuffer shack.]
[9:08:37 PM] Dylan Montgomery: Dylan Montgomery finishes his tamales and takes his chair upstairs when Jen isn’t looking.
[9:11:54 PM] Zok: Zok goes to his medium-lifestyle car and starts driving
[9:14:44 PM] Jeff Davies: Zok arrives, purchases, goes back to the team without consequence.
[9:17:08 PM] Aoife Strix: “So I didn’t get my stuffer shack. Disappointing. Alright, let me take a crack with the autopicker.”
[9:18:02 PM] Zok: Zok taks a stab at it first
[9:18:15 PM] Zok: 5 successes
[9:20:29 PM | Edited 9:20:45 PM] Jeff Davies: You open the box and inside is a piece of paper… on the front of this paper are the words “list 27 part 3.”
[9:21:07 PM] Zok: Zok takes out the paper, looking confused
[9:21:40 PM] Zok: Zok hands it to Aoife
[9:21:51 PM] Aoife Strix: Aoife looks at the paper.
[9:23:52 PM] Levan Kohris: Being unable to see anything from her position on the ground, and with her curiousity itching away, Levan stands up and schimmies her way over to the others, peering over Aoife’s shoulder to get a look at the contents.
[9:23:54 PM] Zok: Zok cracks one of the beers open
[9:24:17 PM] Jeff Davies: The paper is covered in small print. The text includes the names of executive heads, and politicians, and people of influence. Under each name is a way to blackmail them and the hiding place of the evidence to do so.
[9:24:55 PM] Dylan Montgomery: Dylan Montgomery watches through the tacnet. “Holy drek.”
[9:25:53 PM] Dylan Montgomery: “Who the fuck is Larkspur Blue and what the fuck is this list?”
[9:27:07 PM] Zok: Zok ENHANCE
[9:27:22 PM] Zok: Zok ‘s cybereye zooms
[9:27:56 PM] Dylan Montgomery: “Anyone else get the feeling like seeing that list makes us a little more expendable?”
[9:28:14 PM] Zok: Zok saves a snapshot
[9:28:34 PM] Aoife Strix: “This is some serious shit.”
[9:28:49 PM] Zok: “So, how much were we getting for this?”
[9:28:59 PM] Zok: “because this seems like it might be worth more than that”
[9:29:03 PM] Levan Kohris: “… Anyone see the Kohris name?”
[9:29:40 PM | Edited 9:32:25 PM] Aoife Strix: "I can see your point Dylan. Still, Larkspur hasn’t screwed us over yet."
[9:30:02 PM] Levan Kohris: “No? Awesome; now I won’t feel terrible for haggling the price up higher for this!”
[9:31:44 PM] Roseline Blackwater: Roseline Blackwater has been asleep in the corner, oblivious to the conversation going on around her, music drowning out the backround noise.
[9:33:42 PM] Zok: “so… we never found it, right?”
[9:33:43 PM] Dylan Montgomery: “3k does seem cheap for this. But we have to balance that against future work and concern for future well being. In short, we may be fucked.”
[9:34:23 PM] Dylan Montgomery: “Part of me says we break back in, put it back.”
[9:34:47 PM] Aoife Strix: “Or we stick it back in the box, say we couldn’t get the lock open, hand it over to Larkspur.”
[9:35:23 PM] Dylan Montgomery: “That’s clever. Let’s mark it up too, make it seem like we tried and didn’t use an autopicker.”
[9:35:54 PM] Zok: “I could still punch it”
[9:37:42 PM] Zok: Zok holds out the open case
[9:38:27 PM] Aoife Strix: Aoife sticks the piece of paper back in. “We’re going with the we never saw it and sticking with that plan, right?”
[9:38:56 PM] Dylan Montgomery: “Sounds good to me.”
[9:39:14 PM] Aoife Strix: Aoife Strix closes and relocks the case
[9:39:35 PM | Edited 9:39:48 PM] Zok: Zok puts the box on the ground, kneels, and punches it with his left hand
[9:40:19 PM] Zok: 1 hit
[9:40:25 PM] Zok: 6p damage
[9:41:05 PM] Jeff Davies: The box is scuffed.
[9:41:51 PM] Zok: (after a pause) “wait isn’t this worse?”
[9:42:01 PM] Zok: “aren’t we supposed to not try and get in?”
[9:42:41 PM] Dylan Montgomery: “We were expecting a chip.”
[9:43:13 PM] Aoife Strix: “Which means they expected us to at least try to get in.”
[9:44:31 PM] Zok: “ah”
[9:45:07 PM] Aoife Strix: “It’s possible Larkspur got bad info and thought it was a chip. Still better this way, plausible denaibility.”
[9:46:38 PM] Dylan Montgomery: “One of us needs to do the drop. Someone who can play it completely cool.”
[9:47:15 PM] Zok: I run the image in my comlink, double checking to see if Larkspur is in there
[9:48:05 PM] Roseline Blackwater: Roseline Blackwater begins to snore.
[9:50:16 PM] Jeff Davies: @Zok: He is not in this part. Also that is an alias and the names all appear to be real god given names.
[9:51:16 PM] Zok: (how barbaric)
[10:09:09 PM] Levan Kohris: “So little ol’ Blue is setting up a drop off point for us in 12 hours.”
