Golas leads you back through the kitchen to a private meeting room. There is a muffled noise coming from inside the room, which quickly turns into full shouting as soon as the door is opened.
“..LET HIM TWIST! I’M NOT….” a deep gravelly voice shouts.
The shouts break off in mid-tirade as the team turns to look at you. You recognize the woman from your commcall and guess that the troll across the table was the one whose arm was in the picture before. In addition there is second elf, a human and an ork.
“You made it. May as well sit down and tell us what was so bloody important. If you want to talk to Malcolm, you’ll need to convince us that it’s okay.”
One thing strikes you as strange when you look around the room: there are several glasses, bottles of soda, and pitchers of water. For a meeting in the back room of a bar, the containers all seem oddly free of alcohol.
Zak explains that you are looking for the Phaistos Disc that Malcolm stole from a Greek museum.
“The Heraklion Museum job. The goods were all shipped to a location in San Francisco via a slow-moving cargo ship. But Carella removed the disc just before the container was sealed. He paid each of us an extra 5,000 nuyen and said that the disc was being sent to a different buyer. Only Carella knew who the other buyer was.”
“The original buyer wouldn’t have gone by the name Rosenberg would it?”
“His name seems to get around a lot.” The female elf says. “If you are interested in the name of who Carella sold the disk to you are going to need to help us break him out of prison.” The Troll seems to be unhappy when she says that, but she carries on without paying any attention to him. “Let me introduce you to the Loose Cannons.”
After introductions are given you know that the Loose Cannons consists of Widget, a female elven rigger/decker; Hiver, an elven ranged specialist/medic; Emillio, a troll heavy weapons specialist; Nerefeiz, a human face and Yuyi, an ork covert op and B & E specialist.
“We have the beginnings of plan, but we were short on manpower. With the addition of your team we can deal with both the external reinforcements and the internal security. The basic plan is to hack into the system, acquire a floor plan to double check it matches with the rough plans we have and check which cell Carella is located in. This will only require access to the administrative host, rather than the more secure security host.
We fly into the building. Land on helipad, take down guards using overwhelming firepower. Leave Emilio in helicopter with Widget to detonate charges on the street as oncoming vehicles respond. He also keeps an eye on Widget while she is in the Matrix. Hiver, Nerefeiz and Yuyi can lay the charges and tackle the external security while you deal with the internal security forces and free Carella"
Zak and Alan can barely hear Emilio whisper “Still too dangerous. We need to talk.”
“Fine, you and gh0st get the floor plans for the prison, while I get some food. One of you guys should come so we pick something you guys like to eat.” Emilio says. “So who’s coming?”
Alan says “Roy will go, he can drive.”
“I’ll go too. We can take my car.”, Zak states and then says under his breath, “Besides I want to get something edible.”
