The runners were contacted by Tosh Athack for another job. ADA Dana Oaks has found another target—a drug and gun dealer known only as “Junior.” Knight Errant has identified a few addresses at which they suspect Junior of doing business, but their surveillance has not been able to catch sight of him. Providing little more than this list of addresses, Athack sent the runners off to find Junior.
Shortly after leaving the meeting, the runners were approached by NeoNET reporter Joe Martin. He asks them to act as confidential sources, providing any details, accounts, or video footage of their investigation in return for potential future favors. While meeting with Martin, they received a message from Athena Tatopoulos of KSAF offering the runners 1,000¥ each to provide any information to her instead of Martin.
After some dead ends, Athack called the team and tells them to come to a Downtown bar called Murhpy’s Law. They arrived to find a crime scene—the aftermath of a violent confrontation between the Mafia and the Yakuza. Using video footage of the incident, Hal managed to connect one of the Mafia soldiers to a place called Gravity Bar.
At the Gravity Bar, the team found a number of Mafia soldiers that appeared to be keeping an eye on them. When Deuce approached them about Junior, they told him that Junior was interested in meeting with his team and that they could find him in the Ork Underground. A quick bribe to the manager of the Gravity Bar got them into the Ork Underground, though they didn’t have any leads for tracking down Junior.
After an hour of fruitless searching, their old friend Pip showed up with news that someone named Johnny Torinni wanted to meet with them. Pip lead them to a bar/strip club called the Gold Mine, where they met Torinni. He promised to lead them to Junior and provide them with any information they wanted about him, but first he wanted them to do some favors. These favors turned out to be protecting a shipment of building materials heading for the Underground, delivering food and supplies to a homeless shelter in the Narrows, and breaking up a Bot’Kham protection racket.
After the team completed all his tasks, Torinni revealed that he was Junior. He negotiated with the runners to allow him to fake Junior’s death, so that they could collect some money on the bounty while leaving Torinni to his humanitarian efforts in the Underground. ADA Oaks was not happy with the team for bringing back a corpse, but Athack was fine with the result. The team also worked with Torinni to set up video footage and other evidence of Knight Errant hiring shadowrunners to track down a criminal and execute him. They sold this evidence to Athena Tatoupolos of KSAF.
