Mission in The Burbs - Zaibatsu rpg session One Shot Report

  “Desperation is the raw material of drastic change. Only those who can leave behind everything they have ever believed in can hope to escape. ”

― William S. Burroughs

Today was one of those days where I was able to actually play rather then DM. And we got in a spot of Zozer games  Zaibatsu. We rolled up our street scum & got down to a mission involving recovering some data for a street hustler named Masque. 

Masque had us in the backroom of his illegal club in the back of a book shop in Ginja district. The ciggarette smoke was thicker then the music blasting through the speakers. And we were surrounded by Yakuza & their hangers on. We didn't even qualify for the rungs of the laddar in this adventure. Masque wanted three disks from a gold hauling operation at the edge of the solar system & information on two departing colony ships. He wanted the letters of passage that the authorities had for colonists enabling anyone with forged documents to leave the Earth. 
What we didn't realize is that this was a suicide mission to go into the heart of the mega corporate district to pick up these files. As the SDI agents  were waiting for anyone stupid enough to do the pick up. 
But I'm getting ahead of myself as we had our hacker get some intel on this operation before it started. And what we found wasn't good! We knew that this was a trap. And we needed to find a way of getting those documents. 
So a different plan formed and that was to break into the SDI safehouse where the computer archives were held in the suburbs. 
We actually switched to corporate mode as a cleaning service to break into the safehouse. Our van drove to said safehouse and we went about quietly taking out guards non lethally. Grabbed the card key to get in & went to work on the whole outfit. And then the things went side ways as my character got shot by one of the SDI agents with a silenced pistol. 
And so I took over another member of the team who was driving the van and resumed play shooting the guy who shot my PC. And then taking extra ammo and tools from old PC's corpse. 
Our hacker was able to break into the computer with the codes from one one of the dead SDI agents. We got the data got back to Masque's club and then got killed as an SDI hit force was waiting for us. 
But this wasn't the end of the adventure as we hid the information disks before we went to the club forcing DM Steve to come up with another mission for next weekend!
