A bus journey and a short walk later, Ms. Magus and Griffin were on the roof of the Creamer Street junkyard. Griffin said to Ms. Magus "I'll wait until you fire your first shot. When that happens, I'll go in loud to keep them off you while you toss the place."
Griffin landed on one of the Saints while Ms. Magus knocked one down with her spells. The Saint who Ms. Magus hit quickly used his autoinjector.
Griffin will delay his action until Ms. Magus fires her first blast. The two Saints are Goons from Gamemaster's Guide with Bulletproof Vests.
Griffin and Ms. Magus are not using lethal force, the Goons certainly are.
Roll Initiative! Ms. Ma
6 P.M., The Lodge...
Jane said "For tonight, I have prepared a New York specialty for our guest. Steak Delmonico. Thick-cut steak with a side of Delmonico potatoes."
Griffin said "It's been ages since I've had steak!"
Twenty minutes later...
As Griffin finished his steak and potatoes, he said "That was an excellent meal, Jane!"
"Thank you, Griffin."
"And that is one way to cook potatoes I haven't tasted before, it was really nice!"
As Jane tidied away the plates and cutlery, Ms. Magus said "Now to business. Have you procured anything for the raid?"
Griffin told her "Yeah, I got a few things in preparation earlier, but there was a slig
The Lodge backyard, three minutes later...
As Griffin landed, Cass said "That was fast!
Griffin replied "Thank you." then he asked "What's so important that you've asked me back?"
Cass went "Let's talk indoors."
In the dining room, Cass told Griffin "A friend of mine has told me that the 3rd Street Saints have a major location here in Brooklyn."
He asked "The 3rd Street Sinners? I'm in. What's going on?"
"They're using a junkyard on Creamer Street as a warehouse for all kinds of contraband. Drugs, guns, dark money, you name it!"
"If it's a major location for them, they'll have some tight security arrangements. I'd expect at l
1st April, 2017... 89 days remaining on Griffin's waiver.
As Griffin and Ms. Magus were finishing their cereal, Griffin asked "There's something I want to do today, and I was wondering if you could help me, Cass?"
Cass asked "What is it?"
"Tell me, have you heard of Goldwing?"
"The griffin technomancer from Ani-Earth who enchants stuff for capes?"
"Yeah, him. I owe him so I'm going to get him a gift he'll find useful. Can you think of anyone in the Five Boroughs who can make those gloves of his?"
"There's maybe one guy I know of who might help. His name's Leo Zelinsky, half the powered-types in this town get their costumes from him! If
10:40 P.M. Sunset Park...
It was late at night and only crickets could be heard at the park. Griffin, Cass and Nieulor were all in position, making notes of potential hostiles. Only one of the bugbears was any good at hiding, but not good enough.
There are three Bugbears in the park, trying to be subtle. They get 22, Natural 1 and 8 on a Stealth roll.
Griffin does a Perception check and gets 22, 6 and 17. Ms. Magus gets 21, 18 and 13. All three bugbears have been found!
That was when Lastrode turned up early with the dog and two bodyguards who looked a lot like the bugbears that Griffin and Cass saw.
The dog's ears suddenly perked up. Last
6 P.M. Cass' House...
When Cass came through the portal and closed it, the Frenchman downed the glass of water, saying "Merci beaucoup!" while Griffin went "I can't believe we just dodged the NYPD!"
Cass said "Now we're out of danger, I have to ask, monsieur... Who are you and why were you down there in the first place?"
The Frenchman said "My name is Delacey, I came to this city from Paris to reclaim... certain property of mine. I was assaulted by the gang you defeated shortly after I landed. According to my phone, it has been a few hours since I landed and you saved me."
Griffin asked "What is this property of yours, monsieur, that you'
5 P.M. Cass' House...
In the living room, Cass asked Griffin "Want to go out for dinner tonight, Griff?"
Griffin replied "Alright. I've got a messenger bag so I can carry my sword outdoors without New York's Finest - or any capes for that matter - giving me any heat over it."
Cass nodded "Smart move."
As they went out, they passed three men who were wearing trenchcoats and cowboy hats.
Griffin whispered "Don't those three look a bit dodgy, Cass? I know it's a bit damp out, but not that much."
"You're right, they don't look like your average leg-breakers to me. They look a bit too big for that."
Griffin gets 15 on his Insight and Ms. Ma
