Issue 0 (Cont’d): Stripclub Shootout

  • Some days after his fight in the garage, Roland finds at the hospital to take his “shift” in watching over his brother, Ray, who is still in a coma. As he enters, he discovers that one of his older brothers, Robbie, is already here. Robbie is a detective in Gang Crimes but at the moment is more interested in blaming Roland for their brother’s current condition. An argument ensues that must be broken up by an orderly. Robbie storms out.
  • Roland later learns that Mohinder was shot in a drive-by that sounds like retaliation for the events that the Black Knight was responsible for. Even worse, he learns most of the criminals apprehended by the vigilante have been released. He questions the man but does not learn much new, then chats with the local police who are assigned to protect some of more badly injured criminals. This points him to an identity of the criminals – Latvian gangsters led by a man named Oli.
  • Hitting the streets, Roland asks around and finally ends up identifying the Latvian HQ in the form of a strip club. He scouts it out in civilian form, intending on breaking in much later that night to get incriminating evidence. While scouting late in the night, he observes first a squad of heavily armed men arriving via the back door soon before a group of cops arrive at the front. Recognizing his brother, Robbie, with the cops, Roland tries to call him to warn him of the danger … but the detective has clearly left his phone in his car or turned it off entirely. The cops enter … and almost immediately find themselves under attack by heavily armed gangsters with submachine guns.
  • Even before the cops have breached, Roland is sprinting toward the back-door, extremely glad that he is at least wearing black motorcycle leathers and a helmet. He kicks in the door at the sound of gunfire, then pauses briefly to hurl a bucket of mop water against the circuit breaker panel, causing a power shortage. As lights start flickering, he enters the stripclub, just as the police pull back, half of their number badly injured.
  • Using the darkness and speed as cover, the Black Knight smashes through the gangsters. Outside, Robbie and the cops still conscious suddenly hear the sound of screaming accompanying more gunfire that isn’t aimed at them. As the shooting begins to die down, Robbie leads the cops into the club – they end up dropping a fleeing (but armed) bad guy and, a moment later, catch sight of the Black Knight at the top of a set of stairs immediately before he vanishes through a door.
  • Charging through a different door, Roland finds a trio of villains, including Oli, lurking in the darkness and waiting…

Player Notes:

  • CommJunkee was out again, so Gigermann stepped in for a one-shot for his planned Supers game.
  • The actual fight sadly degenerated into just me (Rigil) and the GM (Giger) playing against one another since the cops took casualties and wisely pulled back. We agreed, after the fact, that the GM should have given some of the bad guys to the other players…
  • Since we’re livestreaming our games every Saturdays (6:00PM Eastern) at our Olympus Twitch channel and then later uploading the stream on the YouTube channel, we’ve decided to dial back on the extensiveness of the recap to just the overall outline. Evidently, I’ve been providing the wrong Twitch address on these although Ronnke’s page simulcast with ours so…
