Tweeter and the Monkey Man

A Night at the Lion's Den
You want me to what off a what?

Characters go to Lion’s Den (just off the river near Renfrew)
* Stray Bullet punched a hole in Gurn’s fuel tank. * Gurn Offers last Rites to motorcycle before putting it down At Lion’s Den they see the lights off and the staff watching as Tweeter seems to be begging and pleading with the owner to open up.
Character’s roll up and a brief talk with Monkey Man ensues
* MM asks if they have the stuff * Yes and a bonus there is a Little Big Boy in the trunk * Right… you pointing to Jimmy go help Tweeter sort out Mr. Wong, you guys deal with the trunk James goes to try and sort out what is happening with Tweeter.
* Mr. Wong has been told that ‘they’ will kill him if he opens up * Jimmy tries reasoning… doesn’t work * Jimmy tries working around the problem. Around this time 3Fingers and Gurn open the trunk
* there is some flailing around * the gangers SMG decomposes * Louis smashes open some of the Coke causing a cloud. Mr. Wong sees the cloud of white powder from the back of the Samoan and a brief discussion occurs where he will open up while Jimmy and he snort coke off a hooker’s ass (said croupier is NOT happy)
While trying to escape the Little Big Boy gets clothes lined, Louis drags him down the street to a dumpster while Monke and Gurn move product into the club.
By the time 3Fingers is back the club is open and there are people starting to show. Inside the club (a converted warehouse) tables of poker, blackjack and paigow are starting up. Upstairs, Jimmy is negotiating with Mr. Wong over the bare-ass of one of the employees. They come to an agreement without blowing out a septum. Monkey Man sets up in the bathroom and Tweeter starts working the crowd, with the team expected to protect their investment. Ivan has shown up and is losing majestically at poker.
One interesting event is noticed by Louis and Gurn (Gurn is in the overlook office as he is nursing injuries from earlier). A guy is working Jimmy and he is giving all sorts of bad vibes. When confronted he drops a flash bang and makes a run.

The big excitement occurs when one of the bouncers somes through the door with his guts sliced open. A pair of well dressed Asian gentlemen, one of whom is porting an assault-rifle come in and demand to see Mr.Wong so they can kill him. The fellow with the rifle spots Ivan and demands to know why he is here (answer, I am here to win money).
The gun totter pounds bullets into the observation office (at Wong and Gurn) and all hell breaks loose. Gurn replies by emptying out his clip at the gun totter who barely grabs cover under a table. The other fellow flashes across the room towards the stairs while Louis attempts to intercept. The patrons panic, some stampeding out the door, a small group use the large poker table as cover and others running to the bathroom (and back door). And James pops the gun totter with an explosive arrow, starting a fire and seriously wounding him.
Louis goes to smash the samurai with his hammer to find his sledge cut out under him. While the samurai follows up with a vicious slash that floors 3Fingers, Gurn finishes off the rifleman with another hail of bullets. The samurai shrugs off and arrow from Jimmy and charges giving Jimmy a vicious slash.
Ivan stands up (he sat down patiently through the entire few seconds of panic) pulls out a Predator and decapitates the samurai, then walks out.

Monkey Man and Tweeter live up to their bargain and pay out the team with a handsome bonus for Jimmy (actually less than his investment). And they go off to lick their wounds.

I believe introductions are in order

The characters are approached individually by Tweeter or the Monkey Man and told to meet at the Ivanhoe for 8:30pm tonight. He has some work that he feels they are well suited for.

Upon arrival, Tweeter facilitates introductions, made a bit difficult due to Monkey Man cutting rails.

Easy as delivering Pizza

Tweeter explains that all he needs is a parcel pickup. At 10:30pm tonight a Chrysler Samoan will pull into the parking lot of the Samosa Hut at Nanaimo & Hastings. The parcel is in the truck. Monkey man interjects that the parcel is “packed with cocaine”. They are told to pick the parcel and deliver it to the Lion’s Den. Tweeter and Monkey Man will be preparing the sale. When asked if the current owners of the cocaine would be expecting to deliver it to the crew they are informed “Not so much”.

Around this time an alarm beeps on Jimmy’s wrist and he pops a pill. He informs the group that it is his anti-psychotic medication and his prescription demands it. Monkey man writes him a prescription for something. When asked to provide credentials he produces a business card showing him as a general practitioner.

Monkey Man asks Jimmy about his armament as he notices a distinct lack of weaponry. He produces a folding bow and shows Monkey Man. Monkey Man wishes to know if Jimmy is aware of what year it is as bows are quite passe.

At this point a large Troll biker of from the Siberian Axe comes over and drops his axe through the table. He is curious as to what Jimmy was doing pointong a bow at him and his Honey. Thinking quickly Jimmy throws his voice and indicated to the Axe that the large fellow in the corner is insulting the biker fellows regular enjoyment of underage livestock. The Troll thanks him for the information and proceeds to have a sharp, pointy and brutal conversation with the fellow, and his general vicinity.

It’s not a drive, it’s an adventure

3 Fingers and Jimmy drive to the Samosa hut in 3 Fingers vehicle. Calling it a car would be an overstatement as it is merely a loose collection of semi-mechanical parts with 4 wheels on the bottom, held together by god-knows-what (rust, blood?, will-of-the-gods, etc)

Jimmy is appalled to discover that the most electrically active component of the vehicle he has chosen to risk his life in, is the battery. The fuel economy is something that is rating in litres (of oil) as it blazes a trail of thick, horrible smoke and fumes along Kingsway. Thankfully they are not pulled over for any speeding tickets as the vehicles hits top speed at just over 40.

Gurn elects to take his Motorcycle, being sure to stay well upwind of the moving health hazard. At one point he slows down to point out to the occupants that the vehicle is actually on fire. 3 Fingers exclaims that it’s fine unless if the flames don’t catch them.

The delivery was COD, got $5?

They arrive at the Samosa hut a little after 9:30pm. There are a couple of individuals inside that 3 Fingers identifies as being from The Little Big Boys, an upstart gang. The group decides to go to the stuffer shack down the street and buys some Halloween masks, then they go to the Samosa hut for dinner. As they make their order they notice that the ganger’s are eyeing them up. 3 Fingers flexes his muscles and vocal cords. Gurn and 3 Fingers both tip the scales at being over 6’ tall and 200 to 260 lbs so the gang decides to move to the parking lot and vacate their table. The group sits down in the pre-warmed seats and enjoys their dinner.

At 10:30pm a Chrysler Samoan pulls into the parking lot. The gangers move to the trunk and a fellow gets out of the passenger side.

The group approaches. Gurn starts the action by letting a burst go from his sound suppressed SMG only to have the sound suppressor explosively disconnect in the process. 3 Fingers uses a sledge hammer to cause the driver to require dental reconstruction and Jimmy moves into the drivers seat. They then proceed to lower their masks.

3 Fingers and Gurn quickly work through the gangers (Gurn methodically firing into the crowd and Louis casually beating them). However the gangers begin to regroup, leveling a fierce blast into Gurn, until Jimmy neatly rams the Chrysler into the pack, leaving one locked in the trunk and rapping Gurn’s hand sending a bullet winging away into some nearby vehicle.

With the Little Big Boys generally handled, Jimmy burns off into the night hoping to make his escape.

Welcome to the Shadows

A Quick Prologue

Tweeter and the Monkey Man have managed to ring up a certain amount of debt, to parties that do not accept no for an answer, and require some help to raise funds.
  • Monkey Man sees Louis on a bender and decides that 3 Fingers or no he would be very helpful.
  • Gurn is once again at the Legion and complaining about his lot in life. Tweeter (also a vet, natch) offers to get Gurn a proper job if he shows up at the Ivanhoe this evening.
  • In a spirit of generosity to the mildly deranged (hey he hangs with Monkey Man) Tweeter offers Jinny a ham sandwich and a job.
