The runners penetrate the HQ host of the Atzlan military. In two attempts, they manage to steal important data for Operation Hell Gate, destroy its decks, and inflict significant damage on a squatter settlement.


In preparation for Operation Hell Gate, N-51 still needs information about the military site where the Blood Hawk will be tested. Therefore, Commander tries to gather all the necessary information before the start of the planning phase for the operation.

The Meet

The meeting will be held at the N-51 base in Seattle. Commander explains that he needs plans of the facility, equipment lists, mission plans for the Bloodhawk and personnel data for an operation. He is willing to pay 10,000 nuyen for each information package and a bonus if the operation goes undetected. The runners agree.

The Plan

Heracles uses his Technomancer powers to buff Spider and Janet. While Heracles and Spider drive through Seattle in Spider's car and Spider invades the host, Janet has retreated to her lair in a squatter neighborhood. General informations about the host makes clear that after an attack its very likely that a lot of security deckers are active for the next 24 hours. After a few attempts, the Runners manage to find the Host in Aztechnology's grid and enter it.

The Run

1st attempt: The Janet and Spider enter the host and look around. They find that one piece of information is probably in a nested industry host. They were able to find the personnel data and plant plans. The Blood Hawk mission plans are available but in an outdated version. The latest version is not available in the host. However, it can be determined that the file was last available on an offline commlink in Atztechnology's arcology. Both runners decide to tackle the industry host first. They find a list of major plant equipment there and Spider is able to remove a data bomb and encrypt the file. However, it is discovered by GOD during the action and the host's security chief a technomancer can also detect Spider and Janet. He decides to fight Spider with Puppet Animal and let her open a file with a data bomb, which leads to the destruction of her deck. Janet is able to copy the disarmed file, but her location is discovered by the security chief and a NeoNet Avenging Angel from GOD destroys her location with a thermobaric warhead. Janet is able to escape, however, as she flees immediately.
2nd attempt: After everyone has gathered, waited two days and the equipment is repaired. Janet and Spider try again with the support of the Technomancer buffs. They penetrate the host and find that 3 IC are already active. They decide to tackle two files (the personnel file of the commander of the facility and the building plans) at the same time. Spider manages to disarm her data bomb. However, Janet sets off her data bomb and is thrown out of the host by destroying her equipment. Spider therefore encryted both files at the same time but was again detected by GOD. The security chief tries to find out her whereabouts, but is unsuccessful. Spider copies both files and leaves the host.
