5 Minutes to Midnight

Binary Blues

After months of recovery, the team returned with new implants in tow. The Tiller Group, who was responsible for their miraculous recovery, is their new employer. The gang found themselves indebted to Roal Stevens and his mega-corp, forced to work off the value of their experimental new tech. Leo Holmes is presumed KIA; his office trashed and signs of a major struggle suggest the hard ass at least put up a fight. LXE (Lexie) contacted Noemi and company for help, afraid to reveal her location to The Tiller Group. A trap was set to catch LXE’s dogged pursuer red-handed and the gang came face to face with the mysterious assailant who put their asses in traction the first time around. The tables were turned in this grudge match however, and the would be assassin barely limped away from the fight. Their contractual obligation to Tiller Group led them to a fleeing former employee hoping to be smuggled out of the country by Mubato LTD in exchange for corporate secrets. The gang gave chase, turning downtown into a warzone. Mike D almost bit the dust, leaving a stain the length of a Fragball field on the pavement. Garuku secured the asset while Noemi battled an enemy Mubato agent. The mission was a success in the end. Elsewhere Garuku tried to determine the identity of the ruthless bounty hunters chasing him down, accidentally stumbling upon some disturbing evidence that indicated him in the murder of his wife. Noemi received a surprise of her own when a heavily modified Bunny Bronson returned from the dead, revealing his true identity as NoNo bear. New pieces to the puzzle keep presenting themselves, but like a deconstructed watch, all the parts are there but nothing is coming together. Hopefully the hard-luck heroes can put everything together before it’s too late to turn the clock back.

Secrets fill graves...

The group came face to face with Zero, the leader of the Musashi and was on the cusp of finally getting to the bottom of the The Tiller Group murders. But the rabbit hole was much deeper. A mysterious assailant made quick work of the Musashi ‘Make Believe’ production facility. Noemi faced off against the threat head-on and was punished for her efforts. Zero was able to hold off the mystery guest long enough for the group to recover vital data on who was pulling the strings of this shadowy puppet show. After one final effort to destroy their deadly pursuer, the group was dealt a deadly blow; their TAPs attacked and destroyed. Bunny went out in a blaze of glory, dragging their assailant with him 100 floors down, but even that failed to stop the stubborn fucker. The group is on death’s door and it’s about to close. But you know what they say about closed doors and open windows…

Welcome to Denver. Welcome to the End.

The band, consisting of a former star, her gruff bodyguard, and the secretive AI gun-for-hire met with the expert Negotiator, Leo Holmes. After detailing a recent rash of murders involving a leading global conglom and cannibalistic tech-thieves, the group sought out information on the leading suspect, Zero, the mysterious figure who controlled the Musashi, a violent gang known for peddling the street drug Immersion. After scouting the local drug front of the gang, the group was forced to reveal themselves when a brutal attack by insane ‘borgs’ broke out in the club. After defeating the psychotic cyborgs the group discovered that a strange outside party was controlling the carnage, seeking out the very same thing as their employer, Zero. All roads lead to this self proclaimed ‘Neo Samurai’ of Olde Aurora. After recuperating and learning small fragments about Holmes’ tragic assistant, LXE, the group departed with tech expert and street surgeon Max for a safe-house that could be housing their quarry. But Max would have other plans when he openly attacked the group, specifically targeting Garuku, going so far as to call him out by a his true name, which he has been fleeing for years.
