The Wagon Job

We open to a slew of information gleaned from the back door that Jeet left in the company store’s computer. First, we learn that Boss Kass has managed to keep the robbery at the company store quiet. Next, we learn that Grasne Velosh is a former mob boss unaffiliated with any larger criminal organization. When he started becoming big enough for the larger criminal organizations to start worrying about him, it was mutually agreed that he should seek an early retirement. He is now making moves on Lythos I toward owning a legitimate empire. He’s in the process of buying up Mine 56 and other mines in the area.

Grasne calls Chen into his office. He is not happy with the way the robbery of the company store went down. He feels that not only is Chen not getting Boss Kass out of the way, he is also going to draw the attention of the Espos. Chen jokes about how embarrassing the episode was for Boss Kass. Grasne glares at him and tells Chen not to make him regret the decision to hire him.

Boss Kass summons Mac to the company store to patch a mysterious hole in the wall. He proceeds to grill him on if he has any knowledge of what happened the night before, but Mac doesn’t feel Boss Kass is on to him, just that Boss Kass is trying bully Mac with what little power he is afforded.

With shipment information gleaned from Jeet’s backdoor, the team plans to rob a delivery truck bound for Mine 56. The truck is carrying a safe with payroll for the workers at the mine, as well as supplies to be sold in the company store. After some ideas are passed around, the team decides upon a plan. First, the team will get the key to the safe from Boss Kass. Then they’ll use Talik Secura as a damsel in distress to get the truck to stop. Once they are out of the truck,Ghumbi will knock the guards out with one of his concoctions. The team unloads the safe into one of Mac’s trucks, drives back into town, and then leaves the safe and knocked out guards in front of Boss Kass’s office.

Talik causes a scene with Boss Kass in front of his office over their disastrous first date while Jeet sneaks in behind him and steals the key to the safe. He is nearly caught, as Boss Kass isn’t interested in rehashing the date or talking to Talik, “You might be pretty, but you sure ain’t good company.” But just as Boss Kass goes to walk inside, Jeet slips out.

Next the crew puts Talik and Ghumbi on a “date.” In the path of the delivery wagon, they leave the two of them with a broken down vehicle. The delivery wagon passes and sees Talik as a damsel in distress and go to assist her and the elitist doctor who doesn’t know how to change a flat tire. Talik draws them close, and completely distracts them from the insidious doctor who injects them and knocks them out.

The crew takes the truck, and the safe, back into town. They decide to crash the truck into the company store in the same space the blew open the week before. Chen drives and takes Ghumbi with him just to be safe.

They take a quick car in front of Boss Kass’s office to dump the safe and guards, but Boss Kass is alerted to the car driving outside and rushes out to chase them. Talik and Jeet attempt to dump the safe and drivers out of the moving car, but fail to muster enough strength to hoist it out. They do dump the drivers. While trying to evade Boss Kass Mac obscures a compost heap which Boss Kass runs into. However, Boss Kass begins gaining on them. Mac does a lap around the block and comes back to the front of Boss Kass’s office. Talik and Jeet finally get the safe out of the car. Boss Kass was so focused on the pursuit of Mac that he did not see the safe tumble out of the car and ran into it full speed, knocking himself unconscious.

Meanwhile, Chen and the good doctor crash the truck into the company store and then decide to rob the store’s supplies. Chen distracts the cashier, while Ghumbi knocks him out. Then the two of them take a slew of consumables.

The crew decides to throw a party, and handing out supplies to the miners, fashion themselves into minor local celebrities.
