Location: Kira’s Appartment
Kira and Dahlia are busy looking for the mysterious backpack that Kira recieved from Richards, they find it under Kira’s bed they exchange looks and decided to wait till they are with the others to look inside. When they are about to leave to meet up with the others Kira finally remembers to go get her weapons so they make a quick stop at Vivian’s. When they arrive they pick the lock and collect Kira’s bag then they relock the door and head for the beckman towers.
Location: Beckman Towers Parking Garage
Kira and Dahlia pull up in the parking garage, Ed walks over after making some final adjustments to the car blocking the elevator, he briefs Dahlia, and the group discusses what their next course of action will be. The group suddenly remembers the backpack and Ed gives it a once over to check for traps, finding none the group opens the backpack to to find 2 grenades, 2 folders, and 2 clips of ammo, which Ed realizes are the same items confiscated by the police! After empting the backpack Dahlia goes to pick the lock on the door, it was open >.<
Ed takes the lead and the group heads inside.
You enter the ground floor lobby of the Beekman tower to use the stairs since the elevators are out of order. Minimal lights are on maybe only enough for security or cleaning. All the lobby security computers are off and not a single person is present aside from your group. As you look around you can see that the elevator lights are on. Moving over to them you press the button with the up arrow and wait for the elevator to arrive. There is a loud ding followed by a dull scraping sound as the doors slide apart. As you begin to step forward to the elevator you notice the floor is missing and you can see down to the giant elevator springs. Assuming it might be an illusion or just reinforced glass Ed grabs a quarter from his pocket and tosses it into the elevator. Expecting to here a clink and the quarter to be floating on the floor you’re surprised to see it fall straight through and bounce off one of the springs. Still not convinced the floor is truly gone ed steps out holding onto the walls and attempts to step on the glass. As he lowers his foot he meets no resistance and nearly falls into the elevator shaft. Giving up you all look around for the stair well finding it right next to the elevators. Being as silent as you can you approach the stairwell to begin your ascent. Not noticing the infrared trip laser Ed storms through to grab the handle and just as he makes contact with it he hears a loud ka-chunk and is met with an immovable door. Without any audible alarms a team of four of what looks like SWAT team members come around a corner and into the lobby with weapons raised. Roll initiative.
