We’ve strolled in to Mattan’s compound…now what?
Some slight trashcan trashcan work at the beginning, as there was some confusion as to the layout of the complex in the spire. The complex is implanted in the side of the spire, with a lot of tower above. Tybalt created a sort of dual grapnel, so he can shoot both out at the spire, and a ladder will be made between them.
Hastus left the spire after dropping off the ‘prostitutes’, and then sprinted to the Eagle’s Nest to get on the ornithopter.
Drake attempted to put the poison back in the drugs in the elevator going to the top. Priss began to sexually terrify Tristan in order to distract him. Valthrain and Drake then switched the drugs to the poisoned drugs. They arrived at the sex room, a giant bedroom with multi-tiered levels around for the guards to stand on, which stand stock-still. Drake left while invisible to go plant the charges on the side of the building. He got there, but found a camera watching the spot where he would plant the explosives.
Mattan came in, he’s about 6’5", huge, and began trying to intimidate them by crushing some nuts with his cybernetic hand. He seemed to really enjoy the thought of them being intimidated, in spite of their tough looks, and apparently history of pain. Mattan took the bag of drugs from them, went into the adjoining bathroom, and snorted two lines of them. Drake saw this, and began disabling the camera on the wall, then planting the explosives. Mattan came back into the bedroom with a disturbing look on his face. Priss tried to crack one of the nuts in her hand and failed, just further enraging/arousing him. They engaged in some play fighting, turning into actual fighting as they tried to get out of his grasping strangling hands. Valthrain got grabbed by the throat, and Priss clawed at his back while Valthrain hit him with his club leg.
Blood began coming out of Mattan’s face, and he seemed to recognize that something was wrong, the poison was taking effect, but the guards still did not move.
‘We jump on him in a gyrating manner’
He tried to do something to a bracelet he wore on his wrist, but they forced his arm back to prevent him from hitting it, and he gradually died. But, so far it all looked like a kinky sex game to the guards. They tried to surreptitiously take the bracelet from his arm and the key from around his neck. They weren’t able to do it sneakily, so they just yelled the word and grabbed it. The explosives blew, and Priss whispered to the dying man ‘Tastes like defeat’. Valthrain then carved a talon in his chest, while the guards gaped, surprised.
Tybalt shot his ladder grapnel onto the wall, the people inside climbed on the ladder, and he pulled the ornithopter away (the grapnel was magnetically attached). They exchanged some shots with the guards who made it to the hole, and then floated away.
They examined the crypto-key they took from Mattan, and found that it doesn’t go to a nuke at all, but is an encryption key for his personal and business files. They have been lied to.
