    Closer than you think
  1. I aplologise for going AWOL; what I should really have done was stop directly after the pay off and have a dignified exit. You will not being seeing me again for a while, but thank you playing with me and I am glad that I am to help create games that people have (twice now) wanted to carry on after I finished GL and HF
  2. Jake does not even bat an eye lid at Alek's abortive questioning, instead he goes to stand behind his mother. Oleg: "We will look into this for you. I'll contact you at the same number when we have results." "Excellent," she not so gently pushes Jake into the car and the taxi heads off. The gangers over by the arch watch it go and then go back to their drinking ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ Rori pockets her share of the cash, "So now what? We more on from being finders of lost children to striking down with great anger and furious vegence those that would harm or destroy our brothers?". None of you can really tell if she is up for this or not, but she has not exactly run away screaming either. Oleg's call gets picked up on the 4th ring, your contact sounding only slightly stoned, "Yo corpse. What you lost this time?"
  3. I try to avoid giving my real opinion on anything http://dilbert.com/strips/comic/1991-11-27/ So I apolgise to Mark if you have taken to heart what was meant in jest If I had wanted to initiate a flame war I would go to the smoking room.
  4. I am cool with whatever you guys want to do. I can either finish up after the meet and be done, spend some loot chill out and get ready, or g "less ethics more money" I am generally far happier, as I think everyone is, with exploring how far people are prepared to go. I am also happy to keep Rori as an NPC, for the same reason you are, and for the practical ones that she has both a purpose and a personality.
  5. Really, remember talking to any of the genuinely anti-gun people who used to be here? Bookwyrm? Strawberry Cream?
  6. Oleg and Andrei: "Da, 11,500. The abductor was not part of the deal - you hired us to retrieve Jake, not punish his captor. She did not cooperate quickly enough to avoid injury. We left her on the floor of the dive where we picked up Jake. Her injuries were not life threatening, though being unconscious in that neighborhood may be. If you want name and address, we will sell them to you for another 2,500." She ponders this for a moment, then begins getting the credstick out of her pocket. Alek: "alright then, thanks for the help.the musical number was a nice touch." "No prob tvoratisch, oh look, looks like your girl is over there. They point at the taxi as you head off, he might be being sarcastic, but he isn't being threatening. Andrei: There isn't really any much cover or concealment where you are apart from the vehicles themselves and a multitude of places someone could be watching you from - though they would need some sort of zoom/telescope to do so - like the sights on a sniper rifle for instance. Fortunatly for you, anyone shooting is going to go Rori or Alek first depending on their priorities. Everybody: Alek has made it to the car in time to watch her finish the credit transaction and hear her counter-offer. "They say there is no %ge in vengence. "They" of course are correct. However, it is not vengence to deal with a possible source of future expenditure. Here is your 11,500. I will pay another 5,000 each, cash, for you to bring me this woman." +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ Andrei: Jake reacted to your employers counter-offer to deal with Hilomeh but then quickly composed himself Oleg: Jake looked worried when you made your offer to sell Hilomeh's whereabouts, and more worried when his mother made her counter-offer. He just about has his composure back though Alek: MONEY! Though this might be a line Alek has never crossed before
  7. There was an or in that question? Apart from telling me tha Obama was ruining the country? Which is not exactly a fringe opinion even if I don't agree with it. Question of mandatory training was raised and discussed "with merits on both sides" (not by me it might add), which I am sure any of the self-appointed 2nd ammendment guardians here would be quick to denounce as the first step on the road to a communist sponsored genocide. No strong opinions on the merits of cartridges either (9mm, 10mm, .357 and .45 all talked about as potential for self-defence. Got told no when I asked about 7.62x25 and 9mm Sov, which I was not partcularly suprised about. Fellow trainees were 1 ex-cop, his son and a Doctor. +++++++++++++++ Only shot GLock 17 which, having no frame of reference I found ok. Though possibly a little big for my hands. Probabkly would prefer something with a smaller grip (single column mag) Got hit on the head a lot by falling brass Shot Weaver the whole trip (pick one thing and stick with it ws my philosophy) Training was all shots from holster, mostly double taps except when turning to face target. Head Shots were not part of the test, nor an automatic part of the drill Drill is: Draw Two shots to torso Back to ready Check target Be ready to shot headshot if necessary.
  8. Oleg: Jake sullenly gets out of the car, "Hello mother. "Hello Jake dearest" A truly touching and insincere family reunion that is. There is the sound of singing from where you are trying to pretend Alek isn't; or what someone thinks is singing. "11,500 to settle then, and the abductors?" Andrei: Everything looks to be going okay outside, Jake gets out and stands by Oleg. Are you staying in or getting out? There is noise from the Gate where Alek went but does not sound like trouble. Alek: ?!?
  9. Oleg/Andrei: You see the passenger shuffle to the far side of the backseat and then get out. It is, rather to your suprise, your principal. She is weraing a black coat of some desciption, as their is a fur collar showing around her neck. Her head is wrapped tightly in a scarf. Most of her body is behind the car and only really her head is showing. "It is late, it is cold. I am not planning to double cross you, you have nothing to gain by double crossing me. So let us do this and get on with out lives. You have the goods?" Oleg: She is entirely on the level, it seems. Andrei: Rori is twitching like her inner Admiral Akbar is yelling "It's a TRAP", she probably thinks you have not noticed. +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ "hey guys, nice weather tonight. I'm wondering if you can help me out. I'm suppose to meet a girl here, she said under the arch, so yeah here. cute little red head, likes to wear corp suits, kind of on the thin side. seen anybody like that around here tonight? I've been around the place twice and i can't seem to find her... help me out and I'll buy the next round." There's a couple of raised eyebrows at this, "Why the hell some corpwoman meet you here this time at night? she slumming it or what?" "UpTown girl, she's been living in her uptown world, now she's looking for a back street guy, I bet her mother never told her why." There is about a 14 rolled on that performance check, and only a 9 when some of them join in for the chorus. Don't ask about the coreography. "Da, Eurodyne for ever." "Original Westlife version is better, fuck Eurodyne" Yes, they are blatently mocking you and apparently do not care if you mind.
  10. Alek gets out, there is not a lot of wind blowing around here, or it would be bitterly cold. As it is it is just cold, well, cold to someone who was not Russian, to Alek this is "Nice wheather for a stroll," "you know what I had better be indoors wheather" would start about the time you feel the hairs in your nose freeze. There is not anyone you can see in the park itself as you walk down along the eges, getting to the gate it gets to about 15m range and you can see some of the figures. There look to be about 6 that you can see, dressed in a variety of cold wheather clothing and street gear. Most of them look to have either a chrome coloured glove on their right hand or to have at least a cyberhand. It is hard to tell if they have a full arm, because this is under clothing - no one exposes metal body parts to the Russian winter unless they are complete idiots. They are watching you as you approach, and a couple are watching the taxi also, but they do not like they are getting ready to attack. A few cigarettes are lit and there are a couple of bottles of vodka in various conditions around the place. +++++++++++++++++++++ Oleg, Rori and Andrei: After Alek has got a bit closer towards the destination Rori sets off, as she turns onto the plaza she slows down to mount the cub giving a bit of a bumpy ride. But as the lights flash across the interior of the cab, you see it has two occupants, one driver and one passenger. Rori pulls the Lada up alongside but facing in the opposite direction - that way the two passenger sides are next to each other. As a concidence it means she has the whole width of the car and Oleg between her and anything that happens. It also means that those riding on the passnger side can talk and or shoot at their opposite numbers without impediment. The cab driver, so far as you can tell, is in a dirty set of overalls and giving the disinterested impression that nothing is going to happen. Andrei: Alek has reached the destination, there appear to be about 4 or so gangers hanging out there, not sure if they are anything to do with you. Oleg: No one else around, your 'phone vibrates "GET OUT OF THE CAR, I WANT TO SEE THE GOODS PLEASE"
  11. Why the heck do you think I got out of California the powers that be there want their own Communist state. Seriously if you ever listen to what some of the long term California Politicians have said it's obvious that they want to control peoples lives from the cradle to the grave. Rocky, You wouldn't know a Communist if it bled on you.
  12. By the time you get back to K'Grad there is very little traffic, whle there are streetlights in the road the woods are not lit. There are only a few drunks, deliquents on the streets as well as a few very optimistic streetwalkers. The parkland itself has a reputation of being a hangoutfor the homeless but not of being particularly dangerous to anyone. Rori, rather than drive straight though, heads down Yuriya Gargarina and pulls a right turn, decelerating enough so that you can get a good look around. There is a yellow cab parked on the plaza between Frunze and Litovsky - oppsite to the gate itself. This is not usually considered a parking space, as it will have had to have mounted the sidewalk to get there. As Rori accelerates off the the North she sniffs, "One cab, you want me to go back and pull up next to it or you want to go in on foot? Alek: There are a couple of shapes under the gate itself, opposite from the plaza. They do not ook to be just hanging out, but that also does not mean they are anything to do with you." Andrei: Lots of places to hide here... Oleg: Apart from the fact there are plenty of places you could be ambushed from if tis was a double-cross, nothing to report
  13. Just as well really, as that shit is more addictive than crack and even more expensive. Last thing we need out of this is a crime wave by people trying to feed their Warhammer $40,000 habit.
  14. Thank you all for your advice. You will be pleased to hear that the Wilphe passed; you may now fear my mad leet skillz.
  15. Having finished at WBC this was what I discovered I see chat is down though
