RVP: 12
Date: 26th October 2018

Runners are hired by a snobby rich elf called Samuel Rothstein to retrieve some tea from his friend Lord Bareon. After a dubious amount of edge spent during negotiation Leaf and Geodesic check out the marks mansion in meat/matrix/astral and it is wrecked. Suspecting it was already robbed Geo hacks into the host, fails composure even with edge and leadership and starts scrambling the data. Luckily some of the data survives and the runners find out the tea was indeed stolen.

Runners then spend dubious amounts of money on finding out who stole it and realize that a group of 3 trolls is meeting to ransom of the tea right now. Runners walk into a Triad tea shop with the 3 trolls uncomfortably waiting for their money. Lord Bareon walks in with corpsec. Negotiating turns into arguing, which turns into open gunfire when Leaf casts Armor. Jagganoth gets booosted into hyperdrive and starts smashing the lot. After a round of random shootings and trying to grab the tea that is secured behind a physical barrier, gangers turn on the glowing mage but Geodesic hacks a grenade and detonates it. In the ensuing scramble runners secure the tea and make a getaway on foot. A mysterious taxi driver takes the team to the Johnson, who reluctantly acknowledges the runners' success and pays up the agreed upon amount.
