Mr. Chang hires a team of runners to get Ujizane Mitsuomo out of Seattle and into Shanghai, where Mitsuomo will disappear, who is wanted by the police and his own Yakuza clan following the events of Kill the Czars And His Ministers. The runners are not being paid any cash, but are told that if they are able to carry out the task Chang will be very impressed with them. After some deliberation, the team agrees to go through with the job. Roo5T3R finds a place for the team to lay low, while Crowbar consults with Mr. Black-hawk, his smuggling contact, to find someone in Seattle who can get them to Shanghai, and Leaf summons a spirit to conceal the team as they move their VIP to a safe location. Roo5T3R sets the team up in the Loveland Bump and Sleep, a brothel posing as a hotel, while waiting on their contact to come through, though at the hotel he discovers that their rooms are filled with recording equipment. Attempting to hack the equipment to disable it, Roo5T3R triggers the attention of the onsite spider, who pokes around in the teams less secured comlinks. The spider sells the information that the runners are guarding something valuable to the Gang Tacoma forever, who arrive on site to kill the team and take the valuable package. The run team manages to fight their way through the gangers, and escape into Crowbars car, when Crowbar's contact gets back to her. He has arranged for the team to meet Mike the Train Conductor who also Drives Boats just off the coast of the Tacoma harbor. As they get close to their rendezvous point however, Crowbar receives a secret message from Mr. Black-hawk, who offers Crowbar 20k to just walk away from the mission, intimating that he has figured out who they are smuggling, and sold the information off. As Crowbar is deliberating his options, his car is struck by sniper fire. Thinking fast, Crowbar deploy's a smokescreen to protect his car, and tries to put a building between the team and the sniper, while Leaf casts an illusion over the car and sends her spirits to fight the sniper. Yakuza hit men swarm the area and Crowbar decides to take the money and walk, abandoning his team and earning a point of notoriety, though increasing his loyalty with Mr. Black-Hawk. The rest of the team abandon the car and try to escape under the cover of concealment. They make it to the docks, where they are picked up by Mike the Train Conductor who also Drives Boats, and they escape to Shanghai.
