    Default Shadowchums: Denver Edition

    Life has been pretty slow lately. You have had a nice rest from the shadows, but the month is almost up. You needed to find a job to pay for your expenses. You sent out some feelers concerning your line of work.

    This afternoon, it seems like those feelers have paid off. A few minutes ago, you got off of the phone with someone who is on the fast track to being your best buddy. He called about a job. The meeting is at 4:30 at Denim, a nightclub in the Pueblo sector. The caller sggested that you come ready to 'run. It is currently 2:00 pm.

    Declan makes his way down to the city streets, doing his best to look sleek and presentable. He makes sure he's well equipped for the night ahead of him, he loads his specialized Ruger thunderbolt with lethal ammunition and tucks it into his trench coat. His other equipment safe in an attaché he hails a taxi and gives the man directions.

    Having swabbed the clinic down after the last patient and put everything back in it's rightful place, Fran turns to the more mobile gear and gets it ready for the upcoming run.

    A place for everything and everything in its place!

    One hold all containing the scuba equipment and combat helmet; one containing the various pieces of armour to wear later; both attached to their mounts on the bike and secured with locks.

    Backpack strategically packed with med gear in easy to access pockets and the bigger gear on the inside, respirator hung on clips on my belt. Weapons loaded and stowed, knife in my boot sheath, baton in my pocket; all power sources fully recharged, comm-link showing green status and ready.

    Guess I'm good to go.

    Starting, and mounting, the bike Fran heads off to the meeting. Parking up outside the venue and securing the bike Fran sees a figure huddled in the shadows of the building.

    "If anyone so much as touches my gear I'll hang them from the nearest overpass with a micro wire noose round their thumbs and genitals!"

    Fran then has a quick, last check of the bike's security and heads in for the meeting.

    After being up all night gaming in VR, Ygor eventually fell asleep some time in the early hours. Waking up he sees the message to meet at Denim and checks thetime. He's got just enough time to make it if he sets off straight away.

    Slipping out of bed and hitting the floor with a thunk and a "****..." he scrapes together some clothes and has a quick breakfast of cold, half-eaten soy-burger before pulling on his jacket. He stows his Uzi under the jacket and slips his baton into his pocket, flicking it out to extension first to check it's working. Rubbing his face to wake himself up he almost trips over the passed out drunk in the hallway as he leaves his apartment, stepping over the guy he continues down the filthy stairs and out into the streets.

    He knows the way well enough and walks just quick enough to get there on time, the flickering lights of his AR display flashing advertising before his eyes as he makes his way to the door, spotting Fran's bike outside as he walks in.

    Declan walks the last leg of the path, taking the taxi only a few blocks away to drop any thing linking him to the seedy club.

    Walking out of the Droid shop. Chapen starts to walk towards metro to take him to there. While on metro he starts to check to make sure he has everything for a rough night ahead. He get off at the closes stop which is still about four block away. It look like I have dome time to check my guns before heading in.

    Fran notices Ygor enter the club, thinking well my friend, don't you look better than when I last saw you?

    Catching Ygor's eye, Fran nods and tries to indicate that the visit is all business.

    Ygor is immediately assailed by both sound and light. The clubs music is loud and thumping and in AR the amount of peoples public profiles pinging into view amidst adverts for drinks offers causes a strange effect as they mix with the lights, with a small gesture he pushes them all to his peripheral view and looks around. Spotting Fran he shoves his way through the crowd to the dwarf "What are you doing here?" he grunts, completely skipping over any niceties like "Hello"

    Inside the club, you notice a distinct Hopi Native American theme. The walls are covered in Hopi artwork and memorabillia. This early in the day, the tribal beats have been turned down from eardrum shattering to merely loud. The bartender is a tired looking middle aged female human wearing a traditional Hopi dress. She notices you and turns her attention to you. She says: "What do you want to drink?"

    Jack carries himself into the club and takes a look around, unsure if he's ever frequented the place before. "Gimme' a shot of scotch" he says, his familiar accent catching the attention of the runners before turning around to rest his slender frame on the bar. "Afternoon, you two, 'ere for the same I am?" he makes an effort to not make eye contact with the two beside him.

    Making it to the club Chapen walks in sets at the bar. " give me a shot of vodka." look around to notice the other runners. But just set there quietly and takes his shot. Now it is time to wait.

    "Always good to know who your workin with" he drinks his scotch and shakes his head is it goes down. "Always prefer to work a job with a friendl... familia..." He looks at he Ork's uninviting scowl and decides to change his words. "Well a known face." Declan turns his gaze back to the dance floor. Closing his eyes for a moment he opens them again, this time gazing into the astral plane.

    Vynzzt had been out late the night before Running the streets and rooftops alike. He liked the freedom of running the rooftops, and did it on most nights he could get away. He got to bed late and had a late start to the day, so he rushed through all of his preperations and hopped onto his Bike and Sped to the Club afraid of being late after not having many jobs recently. He pulled up to the club and ripped it to a stop and then proceeded to walk in calm and collected. Upon entering the club, he immediately noticed a popular club song playing that he liked and he started bobbing his head to the music. he walks to the bar and has a seat and looks to the bartender "I will have a Screaming Goblin and add alittle fire to it." he gets a shotglass pushed at him with an odd mixture alcohol and with a fire lit on the surface of it. He take up the glass and swiftly blows out the fire and downs it all in one motion, slamming the glass on the bar. he then turns and sits with his back against the bar watching the dance floor and waiting for the contact to show himself.

    The bartender adresses the group: "You guys the 'runners I was told to watch for? You sure don't look like any of the regulars."

    Quick to reply but still refusing to turn or make eye contact Declan opens his mouth. "Regulars runners she says hah, no personally I dont get out of bed unless the pay's enough so I'd say your boss is looking for specialist help. Can we get this meeting underway. Names Connell, Declan Connell" The suited elf turns around to shake the woman's hand.

    Addressing the world in general, but making sure the bartender and the suit can here Fran says; "Specialist is about right; not many Runners will do what I do!"

    turning to the suit she continues,

    "Looks like we're gonna form a real special team here Chum, why don't you lead on through and I'll follow on at the back?"

    and to the others,

    "You fellas better head on through in case he" nodding towards Declan with a smile "gets in to the wrong room!"


    Fran hangs back and then follows the rest through.

    The back room is set up like a medicine lodge. The floor is covered in what appear to be authentic skins. Several cushions surround a firepit in the center of the room, where a small brazier currently burns. The atmosphere is smoky and aromatic, but a metal chimney seems to be pulling most of the smoke out of the room. Directly across from the door, behind the brazier, a man dressed in a grey business suit and wearing a traditional Hopi mask ( emblazoned with a stylized raven) sits. He silently gestures for you to enter and take a seat.

    Vynzzt gets up and follows the group in to the room, being second to last into the room. He skeptically walks over and has a seat and removes his helmet placing it in his lap letting his long following almost white blond hair fall out and around his slender face. His eyes seem to flash with fire from there orange coloration, while his multiple piercings shimmer in the light of the brazier. He waits not saying a word, but sitting ready and focused on the man, eyes locked on his every move.

    Ygor snorts derisively when the barmaid ignores Declans hand and points to the back "Smooth move ,suit".

    Walking into the back room he takes a quick look around and lets out another snort, but he's smart enough not to say anything, this guy could be a witch doctor who'd shrink his nuts or something. He walks to a cushion and sits clumsily with a heavy thunk, his legs stretched out towards the fire.

    Fran follows the others in to the room, takes a brief look round and sits quietly down, near the entrance but not directly in front of it.

    just right for a quick bug-out if things go down badly, but no chance of someone sneaking up on me from behind.

    As part of lowering down to the cushion Fran adjusts the holstered taser to a more comfortable position for sitting; coincidentally highlighting the fact that it is there and making it easier to get at if there is a need for it.

    Once settled Fran focuses on the Johnston in the mask.
