Seine Situation

Preparing to Play

The team is gathered at the site of a businessman’s conference. Some of the wealthiest and most powerful corporations in the world are present, wheeling and dealing. The team is ushered off to an empty conference room to await their Mr. Johnson. Their Johnson is a European man with a heavy French accent. Though he never tells the team his affiliations, he works for Esprit Industries in Paris, a AA corp that makes military equipment. They had the plans for a new targeting processor for missile system stolen and they want it back. The Johnson gives the runners a name: Hans Gröener. He is the suspected thief.

Hans Gröener is a lieutenant in the local Vory and is extremely paranoid, given the current open war between the Mafia and the Vory in France. He will not take kindly to people snooping around, but will agree to a meet with the team to discuss business. He conducts all his meetings “virtually”, using a trid unit, a satellite uplink and a video camera. When he learns that the corps have learned of him, he thanks the runners for informing him of an internal leak. He tells them that he did not steal the data, but he purchased it from an “independent businessman”. In exchange for the revealing of a hole in the Vory safety net, he tells the team he sold the data to Mitsuhama.

Investigating Mitsuhama will reveal that the info was shipped to an R&D facility in Bordeaux. The team has to infiltrate the Bordeaux enclave and find the file to retrieve it.

To aid GMs on this run, it is recommended that the GM has access to “Corporate Download” and “Shadows of Europe” for full info on Mitsuhama and Paris respectably.

Scenarios

Meeting the Employer

What’s Up, Chummer?

The team meets with a French businessman at a conference center in Seattle. He tells them that vital data for the company he works for has been stolen and they need it back. Now.

The team will need to get on a plane, bound for Paris to track down the only lead the man has: The name of the suspected thief. Hans Gröener.

Tell it to them Straight

The team can be contacted by any of their usual channels, likely a fixer. The only information the fixer has on the run is that it is going to be abroad, but the pay is respectable. The meet is at 8:30PM at the George Michelson Conference Center in Tacoma, conference room number 7.

The Conference Center is crawling with businessmen. Chatter creates a background din throughout the whole building. Not all conversations are in English, since companies from around the world are in attendance. Conference room 7 is tucked away in a darkened hallway, away from the main body of the conference. The room has a large faux wood table and several comfortable chairs that are designed to seat even the largest metahuman comfortably. The room is empty when the runners arrive, but once everyone is in attendance, the Johnson enters shortly thereafter.

He is a man of Saxon descent with black hair. His grey suit is expensive, but his ID badge that he would be wearing at the convention has been hidden away. He speaks with a heavy French accent.

“Good evening, gentlemen. I have a matter of great importance I need you to resolve for me. I have been at this convention for a few days now and data vital to my company was stolen yesterday from one of our shell companies in Paris. If the information stolen is not retrieved in short order and the news of the theft makes it into the media, our shareholders will be very upset.

I need you to get our data back. Due to the nature of the information, I cannot reveal any information about the file to you. What I can tell you, is who has the file. A notorious felon of Paris is rumoured to have the file now. His name is Hans Gröener. Find Mr. Gröener and get our data back, no matter what it takes.”

Being an especially secretive run, Mr. Johnson can’t provide the runners with anything that could be traced back to his company. So, he offers the runners 200,000¥ for the job, with a quarter up front to cover startup expenses.

Behind the Scenes

Mr. Johnson’s real name is Francois Demaine, a senior executive with Esprit Industries. The data that was stolen was blueprints for a new missile guidance system, that was to employed by the French army and possibly contracted to nations in the NEEC. The project was Francois’s baby and he’s more concerned with his image within the company than the shareholders. The money he is shelling out isn’t from Esprit, but his own personal wealth.

Francois is a Caucasian man with brown eyes and black hair. He is always seen in the nicest suits and tows the company line pretty hard. He is nervous about the theft of his project and what may happen to his future within the company should news of the leak escape. He’s willing to sacrifice a chunk of his retirement to prevent the project from getting out.

The runners may decide to do some homework on the Johnson after the meet. Being from France there isn’t much to be found locally, although if they can sneak in, they might be able to glean some info from people at the convention

Francois Demaine

Appropriate Contacts: Matrix Search (TN 5), Corporate (TN 5), Convention (Etiquette) (TN 4)

Success Results

  1. Who?

  2. He’s a big time corper in Europe somewhere…

  3. Works for Esprit Industries. An executive of some clout, I think.

  4. His name is Francois Demaine. He’s a big project manager in the Paris HQ.

  5. He’s in Seattle on business, selling his latest product to anyone interested in co-venture.

  6. His newest product is supposed to be this new wizzer mil-tech gadget.

Pushing the Envelope

The meet should be straight forward. Francois has little room for negotiation, so attempts to weasel extra nuyen from him will be extremely difficult. The runners would be foolish to try and smuggle guns into a convention center filled with bigwigs, since Lone Star has a very visible presence at the building.

Debugging

The team’s worst mistake would be to try and injure the Johnson. The police are very present, as well as reps from various corporate security companies. Obviously, the run comes to a grinding halt if the runners refuse to take the job. You can make a better offer if it will keep the runners playing, but if they are asking for a ridiculous amount of money, let the session end.

If the team prepares for France, go to “Ah, Paris…”

If the team investigates Hans Gröener via the Matrix, go to “Digital Hornet’s Nest”

Ah, Paris…

What’s Up, Chummer?

If the runners have done their homework, they will have tourist Visas for entering France, otherwise their entry into the country will be quite difficult. If the team has acquired a contact in France, they can get in touch with them to secure the gear they’ll need while in the country.

When they start asking questions about Hans Gröener it’s apparent that they are drawing a little too much attention.

Tell it to them Straight

The customs officials in Paris are very diligent and without the proper paper work, the runners will be, if nothing else, detained. More serious offenses, like unregistered magic, cybernetics or weapons will lead to interrogation.

The runners will likely need to acquire weapons when they arrive on the streets of Paris and hopefully, one of the team’s contacts will be able to call in a favour.

Depending on how the runners conduct their investigation on Gröener, they will start gaining some unwanted attention. After a short while of investigating the streets of Paris, both Mafia and Vory will want to have a word with the runners. The Mafia may try to contract the runners to provide the Martinez family with any info they gather, while the Vory will seek to stop the runners from acquiring information.

Behind the Scenes

The mob war has reached a boiling point in Paris. The Vory have been established in the city for some time, but Martinez is making inroads into the historic center of Paris. When Gröener’s name is thrown out onto the street, the rumour mill begins to churn. The Mafia will make contact first, “asking” the runners to turn over any valid information. The Vory will attempt to stop the runners, by sending an assassin through the sewers. He’ll use the manhole covers for a shield, firing through a gun cam and mining the manhole cover with a grenade when he flees.

If the team deals with the Mafia, the Vory will not easily deal with the runners.

The Vory are everywhere in Paris, so they don’t have a fixed appearance. Being mostly white collar crime, most wear suits, but the thugs attacking the runners will be wearing black armored suits (FFBA) and carrying night-vision goggles. The submachine guns are equipped with barrel cameras and Smartlink, to allow the shooters to fire blindly from around corners.

Despite opposition, the runners might obtain some info from the streets of Paris.

Hans Gröener

Appropriate Contacts: Matrix Search (special), Underworld (TN 5), Etiquette (Street) (TN 5)

Success Results

  1. No idea who you’re talking about…

  2. Big time criminal. Cops would love a chat with him…

  3. He’s the local Lideri for the Vory.

  4. He specializes in extortion and fraud. He has implanted spies everywhere.

  5. Rumour has it he has a depot he maintains and siphons money through to send any money back to the Vor. It is on Rue Bonaparte.

Pushing the Envelope

Asking too many questions will definitely garner some attention from unwanted circles. If the team refuses to deal with the Mafia, the Mafia may try and kill the runners, or possibly tail them, in hopes that they will lead them to Hans. The Vory won’t take kindly to having Hans’ name thrown around on the streets. They will arrange an assassination, but if the runners pursue the assassin through the sewers, the runners will be led into an ambush. If the runners survive the ambush, they can question any survivors for info on Hans.

Debugging

If the team never learns any piece of information on Hans’ whereabouts from the street, hint to the team decker to check the local Shadowland node. If there is no decker in the team, have an anonymous courier deliver a note to the runner, giving them a meet location.

There is a massive social stigma in Paris, being the seat of nobility. Excessive cybernetics or flashy magic will bring the police down hard. The runners would do best to keep a low profile, but police intervention can either help or hinder, since the runners might be able to get needed info from the police (if they ask the right cops).

If the team searches the Matrix for Gröener, go to “Digital Hornet’s Nest”

If the team goes to the Vory depot, go to “Taking out the Launderers”

If the team arranges a meet with Gröener, go to “Mr. Gröener, I presume…”

Digital Hornet’s Nest

What’s Up, Chummer?

The Paris grid is as unique as the city itself, but Shadowland is just as recognizable as it is in Seattle. However, asking questions about the Vory draws a lot of attention and several watchdog frames will lock onto the decker and follow him around. After a short while of asking questions, the decker receives a ghost drop, with the address for a chatroom and a warning to show up alone. The Vory decker in the chatroom, makes sure that the tracker frames are gone before revealing himself and questioning the runner. If the runner can plead his case well enough the decker will arrange a meet with Hans.

Tell it to them Straight

Jacking into the Ile de France LTG renders the Champs Elysees, with each building representing another district of the city. The Shadowland for France can be accessed by going to the sanitation department (manhole cover) and a back door disguised within the cesspool icon of the sewer tunnels.

The Shadowland node is a hive of activity, with job postings, back room deals and file transfers happening in a controlled digital carnage. The rumour mill is extensive. When the decker inquires about Hans Gröener, or checks the rumour board for information, they are flagged by both Mafia and Vory watchdogs. After several inquiries or conversations, one of the watchdogs approach and delivers a message before shutting down.

It gives the decker the address for a private chat room. “Show up alone, or I won’t be there.”

The decker had best make a Perception test to find his fan club and either shake them or dispose of them before going to the chat room.

The chat room appears as a digital board room. It appears empty, but a quick Browse check will show that he is not alone, but the other person in the room is running a high level Chameleon and Mirrors utility in tandem and is almost impossible to track down. If the runner still has bots attached to him, the Vory decker says, “I told you to come alone,” before jacking out.

Otherwise, once the Vory discovers he is alone, he disengages the defensive utilities, appearing as a businessman, with a large snake logo emblazoned on his jacket.

“You must be dense to be throwing around a Lideri name like that…”

The Vory questions the decker as to his purpose for looking for Hans. If the decker is diplomatic enough, he can arrange a meeting with Hans. The Vory tells him that if the Mafia are found anywhere nearby, the deal is off.

He gives the runner an address and tells him to park in the open. Hans will come to him.

Behind the Scenes

The criminal underworld has their feelers dug into the Matrix pretty deep and have rigged up keywords with warning flags. The Mafia may offer the decker money for any relevant information, while the Vory will watch the decker and try to determine if he needs reprimanding.

Pushing the Envelope

If the decker really churns things up in Shadowland a brief battle may begin between himself and the Vory, before the sysop bans the fighters from the node. If the runner gets banned, he will need to find other ways to obtain his information.

Debugging

This should be purely investigative, but if for some reason the decker picks a fight with the Vory decker, cybercombat should last one round before the Vory jacks out. At that point, legwork will be the only way to obtain the needed data.

If the team doesn’t get the meet, but learns of the laundering depot, go to “Taking out the Launderers”

If the team has a meeting with Hans, go to “Mr. Gröener, I presume…”

Taking out the Launderers

What’s Up, Chummer?

On Rue Bonaparte is an industrial park that seems to be in disuse. However, the Vory have seized a large warehouse and are using it to launder money and track how their other white collar crimes are faring. While a good many of the people here are little more than accountants, there are some Vory shestiorka (soldiers) here as well.

Tell it to them Straight

The industrial parks on Rue Bonaparte look pretty derelict, housing small manufacturing businesses for the most part. A lot of them seem vacant. The area is large and may take some time to sift through.

The runners could go from building to building, searching for the operation, but perceptive runners may notice a wealth of expensive cars parked outside one particular warehouse.

The lock on the door is new and high tech, but once the runners are beyond it, they see counterfeiting equipment and rows of computers, where people are diligently typing away. Upon seeing the runners, the alarm is raised and the shestiorka are sent forward, while the accountants seek shelter.

The Vory will use heavy equipment as cover while dealing with the runners. If subdued the runners can either extract information from one of the employees, or plunder it from one of the workstations. The runners can contact Hans and demand a meet. If they are diplomatic enough, he may even agree.

Behind the Scenes

This warehouse tracks a large portion of the Vory wealth in Paris and has enough incriminating evidence to bring down several key figures in Paris: nobles, police and executives alike. Hans will be more likely to deal with the runners, knowing that his infrastructure is in danger.

The Vory are everywhere in Paris, so they don’t have a fixed appearance. Being mostly white collar crime, most wear suits, but the thugs attacking the runners will be wearing black armored suits (FFBA) and carrying night-vision goggles. The submachine guns are equipped with barrel cameras and Smartlink, to allow the shooters to fire blindly from around corners.

Pushing the Envelope

Hans knows his network is compromised. If he thinks for a moment that the runners are going to double cross him, he will activate a radio transmitter that will detonate several explosive charges in the warehouse. The runners will need to flee the building before the entire thing comes crashing down on top of them.

Debugging

If the runners double cross Hans and the building is incinerated, remind the runners that they have Hans’ contact address. He will be rather upset wit the loss of the warehouse and the runners may be required to offer up compensation before he is willing to meet them.

If the team checks the Matrix, go to “Digital Hornet’s Nest”

If the team arranges a meet with Hans, go to “Mr. Gröener, I presume…”

If the team cannot procure a meet, the run will probably end here, having exhausted all leads.

Mr. Gröener, I Presume…

What’s Up, Chummer?

The runners are given an address for the meet and told to park in the open. The address given is a vacant lot. Shortly after they park, a convoy of cars pulls into the lot and form a circle around the team. Several shestiorka pile out of the cars and make sure the runners are very aware of the weapons present. A sniper sits atop a nearby factory and watches to ensure the runners make no sudden movements.

The car directly in front of them empties and the Vory scramble to setup an elaborate electrical configuration. When they are done, a holographic image of Hans Gröener appears and interacts with the team via camera. He will negotiate with them in order to learn that he already sold the data to Mitsuhama.

Tell it to them Straight

When the runners arrive at the meet location, they find that it is a vacant lot in an industrial sector on the outskirts of Paris. If they do as they are instructed and park out in the open, the Vory entourage arrives in the form of nine black sedans. They form a circle around the runner’s car and eight of the cars empty out, revealing armed Vory, who stand ready to strike if provoked.

The ninth car empties out and begin operating like a race pit crew. They retrieve a folded trideo panel from the trunk and set it on the pavement. A cable is run to the back seat where a decker has set up shop. A satellite dish is planted on the roof of the car and calibrated, while a camera is setup and pointed at the runners.

With everything in place, the decker types in a few keywords and the trid unit springs to life, revealing the holographic form of Hans Gröener.

“You’ve gone to a lot of trouble and drawn a lot of attention to get the chance to talk to me. So…what do you want?”

If the runners tell him that they know he had some vital data and they want it back, he tells them they need to be more specific, since he is in the information brokerage business. If the team knows the Johnson was from Esprit, Hans will know exactly what info they are after. However, Hans is into information trading…

He thanks the runners for indirectly telling him that he has a spy or a leak in his network, if Esprit learned that he had the file. He tells the runners that he didn’t steal the data, but purchased it. And he recently sold it to a client for a healthy profit.

If they want to know who he sold it to, they’ll need to deliver him another shred of information. Data for Data. If the runners have a tidbit of info that Hans finds useful, he will tell them that Mitsuhama was the buyer.

What Hans can’t tell them is where the data is now. Once the money is in his hands and the merchandise delivered, he no longer cares about the old. It’s bad for business.

Behind the Scenes

For a criminal, Hans is honest. If the runners play by his rules, he is forth coming and he’s always interested in gathering more information. He truly doesn’t know where Mitsuhama has taken the file and he doesn’t care to piss off the AAA corp. He has enough enemies.

The Vory are everywhere in Paris, so they don’t have a fixed appearance.

The submachine guns are equipped with barrel cameras and Smartlink, to allow the shooters to fire blindly from around corners.

Pushing the Envelope

If you need to mix things up, have the Mafia come across the meeting area and start firing into the Vory. A firefight is likely to ensue and the runners may have to prove to the Vory that they didn’t tip off the Mafia to the meeting (if the runners shoot and kill the Mafia goons, that’s a fairly decent sign of faith).

Debugging

Trigger happy runners may not be happy with being surrounded by gun toting thugs and assume they’ve been ambushed. If the runners open fire on the Vory, the meet is over and any hopes of talking to Hans are gone.

If the team learns of the Mitsuhama purchase, go to “Trail of Crumbs”

If the team botches the meet, the run ends, due to leads drying up

Trail of Crumbs

What’s Up, Chummer?

With some investigation, the team will realize that Mitsuhama doesn’t really have a presence in Paris. Mitsuhama has offices in Lyon and Bordeaux, but the Lyon branch is a distribution center. They will also learn that a Mitsuhama rep was in Paris for business with an undisclosed party, but with GridGuide’s aid, they’ll learn he returned to the Bordeaux enclave.

Tell it to them Straight

Now the team knows that Mitsuhama has acquired the files from Esprit. But where have they gone?

Exploring leads can reveal that Mitsuhama has no real presence in Paris, but they have a large distribution center in Lyon and a corporate enclave in Bordeaux.

A sales rep was in Paris the day the chip was purchased and GridGuide will reveal that the Mitsuhama corper took ER2 to Bordeaux’s enclave.

Behind the Scenes

This should be a simple investigation to track the chip’s progress. The team will need to gear up in preparation for a corporate infiltration.

Pushing the Envelope

Mitsuhama could be watching the grid for inquiries around the purchased data, or depending on the conversation had with the Lideri, Gröener, the Vory may aim to secretly undermine the runners’ efforts in order to preserve their business connections.

Debugging

If the team seems to be having no luck, suggest they hire a snoop or get in contact with a local fixer to search the area to usher them along.

Go to the next chapter, “Into the Enclave”

Into the Enclave

What’s Up, Chummer?

The Mitsuhama enclave is on the outskirts of Bordeaux, in a picturesque landscape. The walled community contains several residential buildings, all surrounding the R&D building. The data was been moved to a data locker on the eighth floor, where the deckers will cut through the chips security so they can get to the data underneath. The team needs to infiltrate the building to reach the chip and then escape with it.

Tell it to them Straight

On the outskirts of Bordeaux stands the Mitsuhama enclave. Rolling green hills and a vineyard (owned by a Mitsuhama subsidiary) surround the complex. The entire enclave is a gated community of private homes and condominium buildings with the corporate tower at the center. The research building is a ten story tinted glass pillar rising over any other building in the area. There are guards protecting the entrance to the enclave and a zero zone that separates the housing from the complex.

The grounds are protected by drones, sensor nets, autoguns and cyber-Barghests. Inside are patrolled by guards and the clinical appearance of the inside hides several rigger-controlled security measures. The chip is stored on the seventh floor, in a data locker.

Behind the Scenes

Mitsuhama learned from Hans what the data was and snatched it up for use in their own drones. The problem was the thick layer of security protecting the data, so they’ve stored the chip until the heat cools off and then they will attempt to break in and unlock the potential within. Security is heightened, due to Esprit hunting down the errant data.

Each floor of the corporate tower is laid out identically:

Mitsuhama Building

Room Details:

No map Legend was ever recorded.  Map provided by Blackjack’s website and was borrowed without permission (but seeing as his site was a resource page like mine, I hope he’ll allow it – J.)

Mitsuhama Soldiers

Stats pending

Pushing the Envelope

This mission can be as hard as the GM wants. MCT has some of the best security out there and obtaining the chip should not be a cakewalk.

Debugging

Anything that can go wrong here will likely end the mission, whether it be the death of runners or failing to retrieve the chip. If the runners destroy the chip as a last ditch effort, Mr. Johnson will not be happy that his project was destroyed, but thankful Mitsuhama didn’t keep it. He will pay the runners a considerably smaller amount in that eventuality.

Picking Up The Pieces

It’s a Wrap

The team meets the Johnson at Esprit in Paris to deliver the goods. The Johnson will be extremely thankful and be sure to remember them, should he need work done in the UCAS. Depending on how the runners conducted themselves, they may have made enemies in the Mafia, Vory or Mitsuhama. While they are in Europe, they have connections in Seattle and could make their lives difficult.

Awarding Karma

Award Karma according to merit of the character’s actions. There are some bonuses the players can receive:

+1 for arranging the meet with Hans

+1 for crippling the laundering operation

+2 for successfully getting the chip from Mitsuhama
