With the ever colourful Lochlan Finnegan at home with a massive hangover Freddy and Frank go out looking for some good paying work.
Upon entering there usual haunt (The Scummy Dive) they find that a rather unusual patron is stiring up a lot of talk, some suit wearing hobnob with a pair of similarly suited bodyguards is taking it easy at the back of the bar, apparently talking to no one and not drinking anything….odd for this establishment to say the least.
Well halfway through there pint Freddy Finnegan gets jacked into via micro drone (bloody neck ports!) and receives a direct data transfer Job offer, and so the boys have moved up in the world (or possibly just across it a bit) and have met there very first Johnson! Freddy handles the offer fairly well for a man with a data jack in his spine and the pair are soon off to find and retrieve the head of a Mr James Phillips.
Now Mr James Phillips head may not be so easy to retrieve, he’s currently using it and it’s fairly attached, this does not seem to present Franky Finnegan with much of a moral dilemma though as he stops by the hardware store on the way home to purchase a mono-filament chain-saw….
Now the mark is working for the Humanis Policlub and is in town to speak to there affiliates in the Human First movement of local New Albion, he arrives by boat early in the morning to a private dock near the Warrens and the boy’s have three days to deliver. After a lot of discussion and various thrown out plans (blow everything up? wait no head then, hijack the boat? we dont have a boat to get to it, pose as humanis members? wait..ork :P ) they decide to try and wangle a bonus by catching him alive and decide to ambush the party as they come ashore.
So the human Freddy infiltrate’s the dock laymen workers and Franky bribe’s the guards (rent ‘a cops from ’Chump Security’) they set up to lay a beat down on anyone in the way, the boat comes in, Franky kicks off with the distraction (i.e shooting the mark in the chest, capsule bullet with stun toxin) and Freddy steps up behind them and promptly throws his brand new incredibly pricey pistol in the ocean after an attempted double quick-draw….oops….he jumps after it leaving Franky out-gunned 9 to 1…
The next twenty seconds or so are rather crowded, Frank does his gun Fu with exceptional prowess dropping one man every 3 to 6 seconds with his twin Cavalier deputy’s and dodges incoming fire like a coked up hair on a hotplate, Fred having remembered too late that the waters toxic and now is covered in toxic burning water, at least he got his gun back. Just as Frank is getting overwhelmed Freddy makes a timely comeback and drops another body guard only to have his gun jam (it aint waterproof buddy) but the pair eventualy run off the remaining guards and leg it with there still living captive.
So in the end it all works out fine (well except for the guards, and the captive, and the rent a cops but hell that’s not what matters right?) and the lads get payed a handsome bonus and end up with a few new contacts amongst the shadow world.
