The four of you were meeting with Jon Marubeni at his garage; he had a job offer for people with your particular skill set that had come from his uncle.
He is looking at hiring you to break into a secret lab and retrieve a prototype of a powerful new weapon being developed there. They are free to take anything else they want from the lab.
He has a few details that they have managed to find out about the lab so far:
- Its general location: it is located under a run-down abandoned power plant in Trenton.
- The lab is heavily shielded against wireless intrusion. Once inside, the runners will be cut off from the Matrix & outside assistance.
- There is limited staff at the facility. He is confident there are a maximum of 6 personnel, primarily scientists/technicians. They live within the lab facility.
- There will be some automated defences, though he is not sure of their extent.
- The prototype is scheduled to be delivered in 3 weeks. The job will need to be completed before then.
He is offering 50,000¥ for the retrieval of the prototype, plus whatever else the runners collect from the lab.
As he is explaining the job, Jon receives a com-call & steps out of the room to take it. After a few moments he returns, with an anxious look on his face.
The call was from a friend and associate of his named Hugh Washita. His daughter has been accosted by some gangers and has taken shelter in a building to hide, but they followed her. The call from his daughter cut off, but he managed to get some details.
- The target (Susan Washita) has taken shelter in the residential building at the NE corner of 29th Street & Johnson Ave. (in Old Detroit, about a 5 minute drive from the garage, barring traffic)
- There were at least a half-dozen gangers after her. Shew didn’t ID them before the call cut off.
Mr Washita contacted him because he knew that he had some contacts with some ‘unsavory’ characters and is begging for his assistance. He knows that getting help will not be cheap, and he is offering all he has available; 30,000¥ for Jon to find people to help her. Jon will add another 10,000¥.
