Except I roll a "1" and have a Travel Encounter. It's a Robbery. Roll up who's on the train... two housewives in separate groups. Seriously? So I roll again on the Robbery Encounter and its a ...Pickpocket attempt?
So some housewife is going to try and pick Billy Pink's pocket? !
Billy leaves the last Encounter and gets on the train.
Moving on Billy meets Sooze in the Financial District and they head towards Gakspar's office. I use the City Deck for terrain.
Next activation and Billy breaks off the melee. Tries to reason with the cop with a People Challenge. Cops is now a Hated Enemy but Billy scores more successes. Cop decides to leave, tells Billy "Stay away from Kay Dee." Fine, whatever. I rolled a personal Confrontation for the reason so I fill in the blank. No biggie, all good.
Out on the street and Billy and Sooze run into the next PEF. Roll dice, Xeog mercenary. Roll to see if Billy met her before. Yep, score a 1.
Okay, if you run into a NPC you have a chance (1) of having met them before. I look on Billy's Character Journal and see that I have met a Xeog Mercenary. We had a Run In before over a previous job.
People Challenge, great, now she becomes a Hated Enemy, noted on the Character Journal. Billy decides it's best to leave her alone and they continue on towards Gakspar's office.
Not today. Next PEF. Exotic, Detective (undercover cop) Female, and....1. Billy knows her from before. Okay, so maybe it's Kay Dee. I figure with what's been happening so far , hey, might be a chance (1 - 2). "1".
Next PEF. Five CVL players. Oh crap! I see a five on one butt kicking in Billy's future. "4". Nope, don't know theses guys, take a People Challenge and just say hello and move on.
Gakspar's office! In we go, time for a bit of Questioning and Billy scores zip, nada. Dead end. Ah, Blondie's there. Billy takes a People Challenge and she agrees to go with Billy and Sooze to get some Green. On the way Billy and Sooze whisper between each other without Blondie hearing (Opposed Challenge) and realize that they are seeing two different girls!
1st one, four cops! (Okay, not the same ones, just going to get some Green).
2nd one, no! It's Kay Dee again,
3rd one, Hishen Ganger (no, it's not Byden from before).
Okay so the cops and the Ganger have a People Challenge, Ganger has a warrant and runs for it! Cops give chase, catch and cuff him.
Kay Dee and Billy take an other People Challenge (When you resolve a PEF in Urban Renewal you always interact with them). Dice are rolled Kay Dee scores zero successes and Billy five!
No way! Finally a break! Kay Dee is swept off he feet and whispers to Billy, "Call me."
Billy, Sooze and Blondie get off the table. Back to the Advance the Investigation Table. It's Friday evening and we're running out of time. Go to the Circle of the Victim and roll 1d6..."4". That's a Shaker. Go the Shaker Table roll 2d6, "9". Government Assistant. Hey, isn't the Trophy Wife (clue 4) married to a Government Assistant? Going to the Where Are They Table I see he'll be at the Pub & Rec Area tonight.
Later that day after Billy arrives Home gets restocked on cash and gives Ashlynn Cooper a call.
" Have any plans for tonight Ashlynn?"
