Straffar Gatan 39
Have this on while you read for Maximum Enjoyment:
The players are a pair of Luna Detectives, VALERY and JINGORO--sent to investigate a routine call from Straffar Gatan 39--as well as a Capitol Executive who has negotiated a deal with the Luna PD to test out a new monitoring product on the officers. This comes in the wake of a recent Officer Involved Shooting in the squad, and this monitoring tech promises greater accountability of the officers. The executive has demanded that he accompany the officers, so as to ensure the success of his product, and squad Lieutenant VORDACH has allowed this. The Executive does not know that VALERY has been investigating him off the clock for months, as VALERY believes that he is engaged in illegal activity. JINGORO, on the other hand, has been placed in this squad and tasked with monitoring VALERY, who is suspected of being involved in corruption due to his secretive after-hours investigations of the executive; this reason for JINGORO's placement is not known to Lieutenant VORDACH. None of these men are aware of these existing relationships to each other, but each has his own agenda.
As Luna PD Detectives, JINGORO and VALERY are tasked with sorting out what happened at a crime scene after an initial response by patrol officers. Luna PD is under-funded, pulled between the conflicting desires of its participating organizations, and occasionally must use untested and unknown Freelancers to pick up the slack. Luna PD officers typically join the force due to a desire to do meaningful work and feel less tied to a single corp's influence. Some days, Luna Cops can feel like they've made a difference. So far, this has not been one of those days.
It is a pretty typical night at Luna PD, and the call to Straffar Gatan appears to be fairly routine for the detectives. Residents have been calling and reporting screaming from the third floor, and after 6 different calls came in, a Patrol Unit was finally dispatched by the Luna PD. Within the tenement, the Patrol Unit found three apartments with their doors wide open, but no signs of struggle or theft inside. Blood stains were found, however. Other residents in the building were spoken to and reporting seeing nothing other than the screams they heard. The Patrol Unit had to leave the scene due to a high priority call. VALERY and JINGORO have been tasked with investigating the building and finding out what happened. There is a possibility, however, that one SANDRINE PETERSON may be hiding out in the building. SANDRINE is a daughter of a high-ranking Imperial Executive, FRANCOIS PETERSON. VORDACH has made it clear that finding SANDRINE is the number one priority of this investigation.
Straffar Gatan itself is a rundown tenement located in the Nines, a nastier section of the Perimeters. The Nines are the turf of the Croaks, a violent street gang known for going out of its way to make attacks against police. The Croaks also control drug trade in the area. The Perimeters themselves are the section of Luna City housing either the lowest paid factory workers, or persons eking out a living on public assistance. Some residents spend their entire lives in their apartments, eating cheap delivery food, and spending all of their time watching Corp-controlled television. Police usually only come to areas like this in large numbers with the purpose of making big drug busts. The only thing differentiating the Nines from any other Perimeter neighborhood is that Bauhaus is building a freight line directly through the neighborhood, and after buying out residents' homes for insultingly low prices, is in the process of bulldozing through the buildings. Straffar Gatan is located directly across from an excavation site, and a large section of the tenement has literally been torn from the building during construction; two apartments on each floor of Straffar Gatan are now gone. Due to this construction, the entire building has begun to list and sink toward the excavation site; it is only a matter of time before the entire thing collapses and falls into the black earth below it.
The Adventure Begins
Your group pulls up to the outside of Straffar Gatan 39. You can smell rot and hear the creak of the unstable building even from inside of your patrol car. Your eyes glance nervously back and forth between each other. You all have a job to do. There is a steady pulsing beep emitting from the monitors being worn by each of you.
