Clive’s Lonestar contact came through with the plates on the van that the team saw leaving the strip mall. The van was registered to a local low-life that was wanted in connection with a Tamanous cell (body part smugglers). Lord Z3R0 was able to find his commlink and use its own GPS to track it. The team moved in on the site which turned out to be an old warehouse built into the side of a hill, with a top-down loading gantry/catwalk.
Lot astrally assensed the locale and discovered that there were a bunch of humanoid paracritters fenced in between the warehouse and the hill. At least one of which was dual-natured and spotted Lot. In addition there was a new-build roadway on the hill top leading to the other end of the loading gantry which appeared to be an office of some sort.
The team did a quick planning session and decided on a three prong approach. Gyoza scaled the warehouse while Builder circled through the scrub to the office. Lot returned to the warehouse astrally, discovering that there were at least 5 other chop shop targets unloading bodies from a truck. Lot handled them, causing them to start firing on each other, effectively killing 4 of them and causing the last to flee.
Meanwhile Builder infiltrated the office though the back of a refrigerated truck, discovering that there were 2 dark clad bad guys standing over a surgical table which had somebody on it all cut open. There was also a troll with a ballistic shield and a medium machine gun standing by the gantry. He appeared to be ‘turned off.’ the was a fourth guy in the room but he was lounging in a chair around the corner and not very visible. Builder attached his commlink to the truck and had Lord Z3R0 pull it away from the loading dock. Builder then opened up with his LMG, shredding the legs of the guy in the chair and bouncing rounds off the troll. the two figures by the table darted for cover very quickly then dashed down the gantry. Lot had already left by then, having finished off the threat inside the warehouse.
the fence gates were opened and the ghouls were freed, but they cowered in the shadows, refusing to come out int he sunlight. a turbocharged car sped away without anyone getting a good look, while builder poured fire into the troll. Gyoza joined the fight and grenaded the room from above. something threw the commlink out of the truck and it started to drive itself. Builder finished the troll before it could come fully ‘online’ and the two of the m regained control of the truck.
Another 50 rounds of LMG fire finished off the ghouls, though Lot killed two with his MP-5. The team then captured the leader of the warehouse crew and the driver of the original van. They discovered that the guys holding the big rig had sold the crew to the chop-shop guys and the crew was still alive upstairs, stacked with several other bodies, who were undercover behind a surgical table and survived the firefight and grenades.
The team has completed its mission, bloody though it was.
