After spending a week in jail the team finally decides to break Vinny out. Dakka goes missing to follow up on a lead on his missing twin sister, but this chick code name White Rabbit shows up saying she’s heard about the breakout and wants to help since her friend is also being held in the same facility. The plan is set, Rabbit and Daemon will get the prisoner transfer route from the police database, and Hitori uses a watcher spirit, then a regular spirit to astrally scope out the substation. Block the transport and break Vinny and this hacker friend out.
Rabbit finds out she needs a passkey and gets the rookie desk cop to give up his commlink. They get into the Node and things are going according to plan, but the information they want isn’t in the node. They follow a hard line connection to police dispatch, examine the node, see the databomb, and send in a Crack sprite to atempt a disarm. The sprite fails and a general alert is triggered. Daemon uses a Paladin sprite to protect the Crack sprite and the team beings to hack their way into the node. Daemon gets a user account, and compiles a stronger Paladin sprite to wreak havoc for a bit while Rabbit goes for the admin account. The Spider on the node begins to flail at the Paladin sprite in futility as it puts up an excellent defense. Rabbit gets into the node, and begins a data search for the transfer route information. The Paladin protects Rabbit’s icon which proves to be its downfall. Daemon logs into Rabbit’s PAN and sets her up with another Paladin sprite on her own icon to protect her. The data is finally found and then Rabbit gets it in her head to crash the node (make it look like a kid prank). It takes some time but the node crashes.
A spot is picked along the route with minimal camera coverage and a good vantage point or two. The team steals a garbage truck and a passenger vehicle to block in the convoy of the prisoner transport and patrol car. Hitori makes the truck invisible until the last second so the convoy has no idea what hit them. Rabbit jumps down from a fire escape onto the transport van and waits for an opening, Stan moseys on over to the patrol car and smashes the tinted windshield, Hitori lobs some stun damage at them, at which point Rabbit jumps down, steals an FN HAR, and rifle butts the two occupants of the squad car, fatally wounding one and KOing the other. A police lieutenant hops out the passenger side of the van and starts shooting at Rabbit, and 2 Steel Lynx attack drones emerge from the sides. Daemon leads all the surrounding civilians to safety (no witnesses) A call for backup is called in, despite efforts to jam it. Stan rips the power supply out of one of the drones and it crumples in a heap. A firefight ensues, with the second drone being a bit more of a problem. Stan rips the door off the back of the transport and is stun batoned for his trouble, but he Judo flips the guy into the alley. Two more officers attempt to harm Stan to no effect. Daemon’s drone appears on the scene and starts mopping up injured guys. The last drone finally goes down and Vinny is busted out of his transport cage. The teams gets out before backup arrives and blames the whole thing on the orc gangers who were also in the transport van.
