#81 Boosted

Most in game players sit inside the gunman's tavern.
Eventually they get a distress call from Tin Duhk from the parking lot.
Tin Duhk the Golden Age weaponsmiths dealer has been working with the group, he is a full conversion borg who lost his most of his body in battle and has been wired up to Truck #2.

Tow Jam (whos player was not in game) was the driver of truck #1, by the time the group comes out to the distress call, truck #1 has driven off and is mostly out of site, and truck #2 is being guarded by some Biker gangers.

Drago tries to scout the location of truck #1 by flying but it gets away.
Truck #2 has some bikers around it who pelt Caldor with Ramjets, eventually the bikers are neutralized and the single remaining truck of loot is traded in for half of the bounty (125Million black market).

Players learn from streetwise they are a victim of a "Boost" perpetuated by the "Booster Boys".  The most talented computer hacking gang in Merctown when it comes to tech heists, the booster boys are a feared thorn in the side of all organizations in Merctown.  When they can afford various organizated are rumored to hire out the Booster Boys against other organizations.  Tin Duhk says Towjam was knocked unconscious by an unknown hack and taken as loot along with Truck#1.

Sparticus gets a message from GAW his jet is ready at the airport.

Drago tries to send and listens for magic pidgeons to no avail.  Drago finds teleportation in Merctown is jammed.

Bluey takes Tin Duhk to the best cyberhospital in the Warrens and cashes in some of his reward to get a red type Triax body for Tin Duhk.

Upon activation Tin Duhk swears revenge for the kidnapping of Tow Jam and the disappearance of Merl.

A new player has returned, Hiro.  He is working to steal truck #2 and tries to sneak away.  Caldor sees through his magic and pins him to a building near a nightclub by the truck jacking, realizing who he is caldor reluctantly lets Hiro go because Hiro might know how to get to Tow Jam.
