He pauses again, maybe this might be too big of a distraction. "Change of plans, put out the fire before the entire building goes up!" he looks for a fire extinguisher and failing that, somthing to knock the tiles down with.

Cillian frantically tries to use his Lopan to do *something* about the fire.  Maybe alter chance so it doesn't spread?! Does fire even have chi?

"I got this!" Samuel says, pulling small fire extinguisher from his utility belt. He quickly douses the flames, before the ceiling goes up in smoke.

Montoya and his team then move on to explore the rest of the front portion of the factory, including the following points of interest.

---

An office here looks more like a nightclub than an administrative work area. A fully stocked wet bar, complete with a counter and barstools, occupies one wall, while card tables and chairs are set out on the floor. A couple of worn out velvet couches sit in a semicircle under a disco ball facing a high-end entertainment center next to a collection of x-rated videos.

The only thing ‘office’ about the whole area is a large black executive desk tucked neatly in the back of the room with a laptop on its surface – though even that seems somehow perverse in the setting.

---

Then there is the men and women's restrooms. Nothing unusual here, except a camera hidden in the vent above the woman's stalls...

---

Then the Machine Room: a cluttered workshop and storage area for the various pieces of machinery and parts used to automate the fortune cookie making process.

---

And finally Operations: But both doors to the Operations room appear to be locked with simple hard locks.

---

As this goes on, Butch, Crystal, and Gilbert finally arrive on-scene, having eluded and/or hacked all the camera drones looking for them. Their hearts sink however, when they see that Samuel has foolishly crashed his SUV through the front gate and parked it in the lot. No way the cops will miss that little detail when they start closing in on the area...

"No swashbuckling required but it is looting time! I'll start on cameras, Gil, when you get here the laptop in the 'office' is yours to hack!" Montoya gets the camera from above the women's stalls, might have info in there from secret talks between women afterall.

Everyone else cover out entry and escape points while breaking into the operating room!

Cillian stands around uselessly for now, waiting to dispense luck as needed.

He's disappointed the cookie factory turned out to be so sleazy.  Not like willy wonka at all . . .

"Wh... What happened... here?" Gilbert asks, still struggling for breath after their epic get away. It's the longest distance he's moved in one go in a while after all.

"They don't make cookies in the reception area," Samuel replies to Cillian. "We got to keep looking. I can smell them cookies somewhere in here!"

"Wait... why do we want cookies again?"

With the teams back together, a quick search of the place was made.

The laptop in the office was no match for Gilbert, who hacked into it with ease. It proved to contain all the legitimate business contacts of Wong’s Fortune Cookie Works. There was nothing in it to lead to A.C. Morrison – although Gilbert did find an extensive collection of pornography stored on the hard drive and a wireless feed from the hidden camera located in the women’s restroom.

There really wasn’t anything incriminating here, except perhaps for the voyeuristic propensities of the owner.

As this went on, Samuel used his large crowbar to break into the locked operations room. Inside, were a few old desks and a row of filing cabinets that contained all the paperwork related to Wong’s legitimate business. There was nothing in them to connect Wong's with any sort of drug distribution operation.

Also in the room was a panel of camera feeds, showing all the areas under surveillance in the factory; including the view from the camera hidden in the women’s restroom. Each of the cameras in the facility was also wired for sound, which meant anyone avoiding the cameras might still give themselves away by being a little too loud.

From here, Samuel could see that the entire factory was currently empty.

The rest of the team confirmed, hitting all the rooms for a once-over.

The Receiving Room was a large open warehouse with a thirty-five foot high ceiling and watched over by a camera set high in the southeast corner. Large boxes and crates were stacked everywhere, moved into place with a small forklift, while a scrolling metal door allowed baking supplies and equipment to be brought in by the delivery trucks. A second scrolling metal door opened from the Receiving Room into the Packing Room and was currently open.

In the Shipping Annex, a camera was set twelve feet up the southwest corner of this room, which was used to stage the boxes and pallets of fortune cookies for delivery. A small forklift was also located here, used to load pallets onto trucks through its scrolling metal door. A number of empty pallets were currently stacked along the east wall.

The Mix Mixing Room was where the fortune cookie dough was prepared in a giant industrial mixer and pumped through tubes onto the conveyer belt that started in the adjacent Spraying Room. Huge sacks of flour and other ingredients sat on pallets that lined the edges of the room, leaving very little space to maneuver around the machinery.

Machinery in the Spraying Room would then roll out the fortune cookie dough on the conveyer belt and coat it with a sugary glaze, before it passed into the adjacent Cutting Room. Fifty-gallon drums of ‘Uncle Carl’s Ready-Mixed Fortune Cookie Glaze’ sat along the east wall, pumped through tubes and into the sprayer – no doubt Wong’s very own “secret” ingredient. 

A catwalk, overlooking the conveyer belt and machinery as it heads along the process, was accessible from a fifteen foot high ladder in the room.

In the Cut Cutting Room, machinery would cut and shape the fortune cookie dough as it came in on the conveyer belt from the Spraying Room and then send the now individually folded cookies into the adjacent Baking Room for the remainder of the process.

The catwalk, overlooking the machinery and conveyer belt as it heads along the process, is set fifteen feet up the southern wall of the room, but is not accessible from here (except to the very determined).

In the Baking Room, hot oven coils hang from the ceiling and would bake the fortune cookies as they passed under on the conveyer belt. The hot cookies would then continue out of the room and into the Packing Room to the north.

The catwalk continued through this area as well.

And finally, the Packing Room. A camera watched over the area, set high on the northeast corner of the room. The conveyer belt that ran through the cookie making process ended here, dumping the folded and baked cookies into large cloth bins, where workers would then slip paper fortunes into them and pack them into bags and boxes for shipping.

Piles of empty pallets are stacked here, no doubt to be filled, wrapped, and transferred to the shipping annex when production was running.

The overhead catwalk ends in the back half of the room, but is not accessible from here. Under the catwalk are stacked hundreds of boxes of paper fortune strips for insertion into the cookies – literally millions of them.

"I saw a ladder in the hall to the roof," Samuel continued, "I'm gona go up and see where the fuzz is."

A moment later, a hail of bullets came crashing down through the structure's roof.

"Ugh..." Samuel gasped, "we're surrounded. ... I'm hit, bad..." His comlink then went silent.

"THIS IS THE POLICE! WE HAVE THE BUILDING SURROUNDED!" a loudspeaker blared from outside the front of the building. "ANYONE SEEN WITH A WEAPON IN HAND WILL BE SHOT! COME OUT WITH YOU'RE HANDS UP!"

"Welp, I'm out of here." Cillian stated simply, holding his lopan over his head and walking out the front of the factory. There he was immediately tackled and taken into custody by a SWAT team.

As this went on, Gilbert observed his computer feeds. They were indeed surrounded - by hundreds of cops and more than a dozen security drones (recording the standoff as it unfolded). Moments later, the lights and power to the factory went out and Gilbert's computer feeds all scrambled - the telltale sign of a jamming transmitter having just been set up over them.

Strangely enough, from where he was standing, Montoya could see that the Shipping Annex still had power and light for some reason...

"Oh well. Samuels most likely dead, Cillian pussied out and we're Farked." Jacob Said over the comlink from whereever he was. "I'm blowing up the entrences. I'm a dead man walking if they catch me." And with that Jacob rushes to place C4 at the entrences, he may have forgotten how much he should be using howevever... (he'll use too much C4)

"Lights are out." Butch says, as he squints, wishing he installed a night vision enhancement when he had the chance.

"We need to get out. I'm not letting them have moonkit." Butch adds, quickly drawing his shotgun and looking to the team.

"Someone tell me something good."

"I-I think we should surrender!" Gilbert stutters out. "We're surrounded... and without my computer I'm useless!"

He then starts shaking, as he slowly begins to shuffle towards the reception with his hands up.

Standing dramatically (even though he can't be seen by most of them) Montoya shouts "The shipping annex has power! Regroup there and look for a secret escape hatch or hidden treasure room before the police get inside!" he pauses "Bring any loose computers too!" he then activates his rapiers dramatic music score and charges toward the annex

As Jacob went to booby-trap the doors with C4, everyone but Gilbert moved into the shipping annex. There, the team could see a small forklift and large stacks of empty pallets along the east wall. Nothing looked out of place - though a muffled humming sound could be heard coming up through the floor.

Someone would need to hop on the forklift and move the pallets to see if there was anything hidden underneath them...

He then starts shaking, as he slowly begins to shuffle towards the reception with his hands up.

Making his way back to the entrance, Gilbert was disappointed to see that Jacob had already set C4 to blow the area if the door was opened. While Gilbert was not sure how to disarm the trap, he was fairly certain that Jacob had used much much too much. Perhaps enough even to level the entire building from this door alone.

With a satisfied smile Jacob looks at his handiwork and nods. It would have to do.

"Okay, doors are now deathtraps, we got a relatively Good headstart should they try to storm us" Jacob said over the comlink as he ran back to the others.

"I got it. Shouldn't take too much time for a cyborg to move crates."  He says, hopping onto the forklift and moving the pallets as quickly as possible.

Seeing he has little else to do, Montoya does a quick look for alternate entrances, windows and cameras from which they might be watched while making their dating escape. He also keeps the dramatic music playing to make sure everyone stays excited about their great escape from the syndicate. "Don't worry, we will escape from these police soon with evidence in hand!" he calls out while thinking 'The syndicate caught onto us quickly this time, to think they had such control over local police, I have been letting my guard down!'

Moving the pallets with the forklift, butch uncovered a large concrete lid of some sort, roughly four feet wide and eight feet long. A large steel ring in the surface of the lid could be strung with a chain that hung in the corner of the annex, so that the lid could be lifted up using the forklift.

After rigging everything, Butch pulled the lid up.

Beneath the opening was a stairway heading down into a metallic basement of some kind, where light could be seen shining up the stairs and the sound of humming generators could be heard. There was a salty tang in the air - reminiscent of the moon's vast oceans.

The stairs descended about eighty feet beneath the shipping annex and opened into a high-arched hollow under the floating island's superstructure. The place had no floor - just a narrow sixty-foot long pontoon pier, floating on the unimaginably deep water of Ganymede’s Ocean surface. Docked along the pier was miniature submarine, measuring forty-feet long by ten-feet wide.

A small platform just off the stairs to the right held a bank of batteries that hummed with power, as they provided the area (and shipping annex above) with lights and electricity.

"Haha! A masterpiece!" Jacob exclaims as he finished putting down the C4, this time he set it up for remote detonation. Or maybe he did for the other aswell, he just couldn't remember. Either way, he set it up for a glorious explosion.

And with that, as he presumably was the last one to leave through the tunnel he will set it off when he was safely away from the hatch.

Gilbert's gear was still blocked by the jamming transmitter above - but doing some signal diagnostics to see if he could break through the jamming signal (he could with more time), he inadvertently discovered a feint electronic ping coming from inside the docked submarine. A quick analysis revealed it to the geo-taging request signal of a cell phone.

If he doesnt find one he checks the controls to see if he can pilot it.

Fortunately, there was nobody aboard the small submarine and it was a simple enough design that Montoya could easily pilot it. The question was, where would they go with it?

Once it was determined to be free of any lurking syndicate members, Gilbert entered the vessel, and used his sensors to find a small cell phone that had apparently fallen (or perhaps been hidden) behind the steering console.

Fishing the phone out, he discovered it to be locked, but was able to hack into it with out breaking a sweat - or at least adding to the copious amounts of sweat he had already worked up running from the cops.

The cell phone belonged to an SSPB agent from Ganymede named James Lee. Its ringer was off and the volume had been muted, but it was still active (though just about dead battery-wise).

Montoya immediately heads down and away before coming back up to a depth able to get a live stream of the surrounded building.

"Right, let's watch the finale then decide where to go!" he asks Gil to bring a steam or two up on his laptop

"Lets first get out from under the whole place. Who knows if this tunnel will hold the whole place collapsing." Butch says.

"Whats with the phone? Owner of this submarine maybe?"

"Maybe it's the guy whose blood was on the fortune cookie we found?"

Montoya immediately heads down and away before coming back up to a depth able to get a live stream of the surrounded building.

Montoya set a course and piloted the submarine out from under the floating Uliga Island. As the vessel moved beyond the radius of the jamming transmitter the police had set up around Wong's Fortune Cookie shop, Gilbert's net connections abruptly came back online.

There immediately followed a shuddering THUD! - as a shock-wave from the exploding factory rippled through the waters and rocked the sub. The sub seemed to take the hit relatively well, except for a sudden gush of water, spraying in from a now separated seam in the hull (and right into Butch's face).

"Oh, that's not great..."

Crystal checks to make sure the submarine's drain pump is on.

"Better not go too deep underwater. Montoya, think you could patch the hull? Doesn't seem like too big of a breach"

His equipment back online, Gilbert buries himself into his work and tries whatever he can to gain info from this cell phone.

"I'll get a little closer to the surface!" he says as he quickly looks for a sealant kit or expanding patch kit of some sort on the mini-sub.

(Not surfacing though incase we get spotted, just cruising speed away whilst searching)

Butch spits out the water, and grasps around for a towel.

"Cant let the water get into any circuits." He mutters.

"This place has to be related to the bounty right?"
