Scene 4

ContextDelbiot and Zed rush away from the Digital shop, the car drives them through the highway to the next district. They travel to make a stop by a friend’s shop: Lucia. They need supplies

The district they approach is calledΒ Ion-Trix, an artificial, nature grown district that is known for being not receiving state protection from enforcement parties, which turns it extremely dangerous… and recognized due to its psychedelic Ionic-Trees (hence the name).

Delbiot and Zed approach Lucia’s shop (🎲 Describe shop β†’ Strongly Empty. 🎲 Describe immediate surroundings β†’ Knowingly Empty), which is located on an incredibly silent back alley, approachable only by foot. The car is parked around the corner.

Lucia’s shop, “Directrix”, seems too quiet. (🎲 Is it closed? β†’ Don’t know, unless…)
Delbiot: “Hello…?”

🎲 GM Action (Chill) β†’ Places a thread element behind a challenge
🎲 Interaction β†’ Strength or good stamina can help

Lucia: “Yes?”
Delbiot: “Hey, you in the shop?” (🎲 Is she? (unlikely? β†’ Yes.))
Lucia: “Yeah, why? What’s up?”
Delbiot: “Well… I’m knocking at the door. I’m here with a Friend. Everything looks closed”
Lucia: “is it important?”
Delbiot: “Yeah…”
Lucia: “K, hold on. Opening now… Don’t mind the mess…”

Lucia: “Sure… you don’t look weird”
Zed: “Hm?”
Lucia: “Never mind. So, what are you looking for, boys?”
Delbiot: “We need premium equipment, the time has come. I guess Helbrok made some arrangements with you”
