For this run, King James played the part of both fixer and Johnson. Americana and Ceyda met him in the back of Rusty’s bar. They were told that they were to play Johnson for another team and pay them 25k for an optical disk, with an additional 5k bonus for the runners or ours depending on who won those negotiations. When they arrived at the abandoned hospital where they were to meet the new runners, they found a sniper rifle set up and a description of the four runners. Americana made the connection that this was their real job from a Moloch quote King James had dropped at the end of the conversation. The mage had died en route and the two muscle were killed (after Flare gave Americana a decoy disk), but they needed the real disk and a confirmation that the missing decker was dead …

- Havoc: (off screen) magical drain. En route from Halloweener ambush to abandoned hospital.
- Flare: Ceyda’s sniper rifle. abandoned hospital parking lot.
- Delta: Ceyda’s sniper rifle. abandoned hospital parking lot.
- A bunch of Halloweeners. Americana’s pistols and bomb. Redmond tenement.
