[Leveraged Serenity] Werewolves of Londinium, Session 2

Session 2: July 27, 2012

The second session continued with character generation (using the Leverage rules and mixing in the Serenity rules as necessary).
  • L played Tobias Bunt, The Merry Old Gentleman (Mastermind/Thief)
  • X played Gunther Mason, The Road Warrior (Wheelman/Hitter)
  • E played Ella James, The Mechanic (Hitter/Hacker)
  • C played Chaucer Geoffrey Chaucer III, The Actor (Grifter/Thief)
Planet: Persephone
System: White Sun
Year: 2515

The session started with the PCs trapped in the same shipping container and no farther on their individual quests to steal the Firefly Aught Two extender kit, a very valuable commodity.

Tobias used some knowledge of thievin' to break out of the shipping container and the combined group made off, to work on a way to disrupt the Zanzibar Marketplace auction and steal the extender kit.

Just out of the shipping container, the group ran into USW guards, one of whom was an old flame of Gunther that ended tragically (in fact, Gunther has the "Disastrous Love Life" distinction and X was playing it to the hilt).

But it turned out that "Hash Browns" (his pet name for her) actually thought of Gunther as "The One who Got Away" (I had rolled a 1 in the dice-off and that allowed X to declare an asset) and managed to sweet talk her from turning them in.

After escaping the guards, the crew then worked to get more info on the auction. Chaucer met up with an old "friend," an info broker named Jonny the Red. Using an Intimidatin' Phone Call to Chaucer's former kick-ass bodyguard (who promised to break Jonny's fingers, one by one, the next time they met), they got an invite to the auction and learned where to meet.

Tobias and Chaucer went to the meet and once there, noted that the extender kit was not present (much to their displeasure). The bidders could see the kit over a video feed. Chaucer contacted Ella, who quickly tracked down the video feed and found out where in the Evesdown Dock the vid was coming from.

Tobias was playing a drunk bidder and Chaucer a rich man, each pretending that they didn't know each other. As the bidding started, they each asked for proof that the kit was actually there and that the vid wasn't just a tape.

The session ended with the PCs split up, each trying to work the auction or find the kit.
