The runners meet their Johnson in The Neo-Retro Club and take a job showing her boyfriend, Bash, the runner life. They agree and have him come to the no-tell motel where they are planning a datasteal on Jam Bo Games in Bellevue. After almost killing Bash to show him what getting shot is like, the runners go about doing some legwork. Dr. D takes Bash on an astral journey, and after dealing with a free spirit, they make their way to their target and disable a mana barrier around the building. With KE alerted, the team heads to the building and proceed to shoot some guards and break some windows while Shiki hacks the host. While trying to deal with a spirit ad the resistance, Dr. D tries to conjure a larger spirit to help them take control of the situation. The toll on his body is too much unfortunately and he perishes in the attempt. Bash is shot down and Gladius begins to get overwhelmed by the guards. Unable to grab Bash, he retreats while Shiki secures an escape room from them. Bash is hauled off by KE, but stabilized. The Johnson seems mildly annoyed, but also not to care all that much and pays the runners for their trouble. A job complete.
