SRM 05-06 Take a Chance
The GM (Ryan)
Spoilers beyond! During another flirtatious interview with Lennie and Sarah Silverleaf, she hired the team to explore the underwater Yamatetsu Research Facility. The friendly dwarf rigger Goober supplied a sub and underwater gear. Despite tightly wound nerves from several eerie, watery shadows, the runners parlayed with a curious youth named on Otoko in one of the modules. Only after she disappeared through an airlock without diving gear did they realize she wasn’t the norm they thought.
The team swam to the main structure. Using a water spirit, Blaster rushed forward through the mazelike submerged portion. He came up in the manufacturing module and found a huge man in simple clothes wielding a glaive and growling threateningly in Japanese. Blaster understood just enough to agree to a battle for dominance. Following a titanic battle between melee specialists, Blaster collapsed from an unknown toxin while the brute transformed into a dead fish-person.
The team emerged from the nearby pool with both warriors down and paused just long enough for Dr. Urashima to rush forward demanding an end to hostilities. Together they negotiated to protect the merrow and return Urashima to Renraku.
