Where it all went wrong

A call from a friend from the old days, Cal, finally got Jimmy, Pierre and Lanche together after months apart. Cal put them in touch with a new contact who was looking for a crew for a series of missions. Unknown to them the missions were being recorded on a full simsense rig by a new member of the group, an inexperienced but talented hacker known as Steeleye (or just Gary).
Steeleye’s drones and datasearch skills provided invaluable information during their missions together, and in spite of Pierre’s reluctance to trust the rookie he proved to be an important member of the team.
Unfortunately (for Gary), Chrome and his crew caught up with them, just as Ramirez had planned. But instead of attacking the group (and in spite of Pierre’s repeated attempts to kill him) he told them what was really going on. Gary, controlling his drones from inside Lanche’s van, attempted to override the locks to keep himself safe and escape, but Lanche’s familiarity with the vehicle won out. Pierre stunned the rookie with a taser and the group drove off with him, shaking pursuit from Ramirez’s mooks thanks to Pierre and a handy grenade launcher.
Shaken by the betrayal, the group decided to take a gruesome revenge. They took the unconscious rookie to an organlegging den and tortured him, recording everything on trideo using his drones, and everything he felt on his simrig. The torture was cut short by a black ops team raiding the den. They managed to leave through the back and escape, the assailants initially seeming more concerned with recovering Steele’s body.

It has since come to their attention that whoever Steele was, his death has pissed off some serious players within Ares Macrotechnology, one of the Big Ten, a member of the Corporate Court, and owners of Knight Errant, the privatised police force for much of the UCAS

Recap: Chrome & Ramirez

Once upon a time, an experienced team of shadowrunners named Chrome, Sally, and Mac accepted a unique job from a man who called himself Mr Johnson. The job was unique because, in addition to the expected tasks of larceny, kidnapping and murder, they were asked to record their experiences to be broadcast as part of an ultra-gritty simsense reality show.
Under the promise of anonymity and a hefty pay cheque, they set about embarrassing gangs, corporations and security forces, all in the name of entertainment. The recordings were distributed virally and with their origins heavily obfuscated, to ensure that none of the injured parties would be able to trace the deeds back to Mr Johnson or the team.
Everything went smoothly until the team found out just how much Mr Johnson, or Ramirez (as they discovered after much digging), was making from their partnership. Chrome approached him, wielding the new found knowledge and politely (in Chrome’s words) requested an alteration to the terms of their deal. When Ramirez refused the crew started making trouble, not enough to harm the enterprise but enough to send a message to their employer. Ramirez’s response wasn’t what they had hoped, he cut the deal off completely and vanished, leaving the crew with no job and the threat of the exposure of their recent work hanging over their heads. They agreed to go into hiding, biding their time until Ramirez resurfaced; intending to either get their jobs back or, failing that, to just cause as much trouble for the Aztlan as possible.
