Merry Bridgetmas! Even during the holiday season, work never stops for the shadowrunners of Seattle. One crew is contacted to eliminate a target VIP at a certain building by a certain time. Of course, getting in a heavily guarded site requires skill, cunning, and good teamwork. This team is not quite as functional though, constantly bickering and arguing. What twists and turns await them and what is Santa carrying in that sack?
The year is Tenshō 10, in the Twelfth month. Six months ago the betrayer Akechi Mitsuhide attacked his master Oda Nobunaga at Honnō-ji, burning it to the ground along with the demon warlord. Snowfall covers the mainland, and a time that should be spent in contemplative seclusion is now spent in clandestine war meetings. Stillness and oppressive silence envelope the countryside, but whispers of secret treachery fill the halls of every daimyō. In Settsu province, Lord Inukai and his loyal retainers meet to discuss the coming war for the title of Shogun.
In the grim dark future, Seattle is home to freelance mercenaries armed with high technology and magic. Called Shadowrunners, they take whatever jobs they can get, even if they involve murder. One such team needs to get blackmail material on a rich man hosting a most unusual convention.
In the chaos of World War 1,the Serbian army evacuated to the Greek islands after a death march through Albania, losing over a hundred thousand soldiers in the process. The survivors were scattered across the islands, most barely alive. Months later, the army regrouped at Corfu but teams were sent out to the other islands to find any stragglers. One team of six soldiers, barely recovered from typhus and starvation, is sent to the island of Paxos. From there, they hitch a ride on a fishing boat to the even smaller island of Antipaxos. What they find may even be more deadly than the frontlines…
Thanks to Adam Scott Glancy of Pagan Publishing for running this scenario at Gen Con 2017!
A Cultural Resource Management field archaeology team in eastern New Mexico has uncovered petroglyphs connected to a known cult (keywords CTHULHU, DAGON). The survey is being conducted after workers for Innskeep Energy discovered artifacts on the site. Preliminary research has indicated the site was connected to operation GRANITE ORION. Initial analysis of operation documents indicates that the site is in of itself dangerous and steps must be taken to prevent any development on it.
Agent ATHERTON works for the EPA and will take the lead for Operation UMBER FARM. We believe our best chance is to condemn the site as hazardous to human life to prevent future development. All artifacts connected to flagged keywords must be confiscated or destroyed. Civilians must not gain knowledge of the Group unless they are inducted as Friendlies. An office park in Santa Fe has been rented under a holding company Consolidated Synergy. Key cards, burner phones, and documentation for the company is being couriered to you now. Agent HOLDEN will meet all of you there in 48 hours to brief you in more detail. Make arrangements to take time off from current assignments for the next week. HOLDEN will act as your handler for this mission.
