While your combat idols would be predeployed on site, Niko would be arriving via Hornet, both to provide a flashy entrance and so the Hornet could be used as emergency extraction if needed.First, though, you needed to figure out which district you wanted to hit.>Select the district to stage the concert in. Refer to the INFLUENCE pastebin to see which district is which and how much influence you currently have in each. However, Districts 1 and 2 are currently off limits.
>>35464655I pick whatever one is Akihabara.
>>35464655>District 5Although I would like the bonus of 100% which we probably can get in the district 9. I think its better to start off easy for Niko.
>>35464655>District 5Time to go mainstream
>>35464655I am torn between district 9 and district 4......fuck it. District 9 then. Lets top that off. it's the highest rating we got.
I hope Niko gets to play her guitar for the show. What do you think she’ll play.?

Not having them perform this song on stage?https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2Y4-4Wecz1s
>>35464768I think something like this would fit the idea of a guerilla concert perfectly.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sdPwvBJiQJY
So Rochelle and Morgan are bffs. The lewd possibilities increase and I have the feeling that the latter is going to be the man...
>>35465016I like that song but I also think this is a nice song she can do as well.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aCiut6jlGbEAlso why district 5?
Also, since it's Niko, District 9 world be her ideal fanbase.
>>35465129>>35465067>>35464935>>35464738>>35464793Why District 5?
Okay, so District 5 seems to be the consensus, is that correct?>Y>N
>>35465158It's probably a whole lot safer than district 9, which is the PRISON district.
>>35465097What will happen when Morgan hears about Yellow?
>>35465226N, District 9Merc mentioned that the district control perks come into play at 75%++. I want to see what those controlling perks are.Considering that the prison is owned by Hyperion, our sponsor and we've done a big concert there, th guards might just think we're just coming in for a perk-the-prisoners up.
>>35465226"Okay girls, we're going to be dropping into District 5." You say. "We've already disseminated the info through underground channels. Now, we have a fair bit of influence in D5 so we shouldn't run into too much resistance. However, we can't be too careful.""Um, so who's going to be Niko's backup on stage?" Rochelle asks.Ah, right. You needed backup idols on stage to enhance Niko's performance. However, that meant whoever was on stage couldn't directly participate in protection duty.>How many idols and which do you put on stage with Niko?
Rolled 14 (1d20)>>35465753>2>Sparky and Morgantrio of idols is always good and I don't think we need an explosive expert and a sniper for this mission
>>35465753Cole and Melissa Team Bad Girls?
>>35465753Sparky and Julie.Disguise Julie's shield as a stage prop for that -just-in-case so she can shield the group incase of hostile fire.
>>354657532 idolssparky and julie
>>35465753Sparky and Melissa.We're going for the neo-punk genre, right?
>>35464655>http://pastebin.com/w2rX1XgeIsn't the Hornet supposed to be in the Hanger list?Also how did we gain influence in the lower districts?Wasn't that like -5% before,
>>35465753Sparky and Melissa sounds good
>>35465753Sparky and Melissa
>>35465231I bet Rochelle uses Morgan as a stand-in for Yellow. Mostly because she isn't used to doing lewd things with a guy looking, so she uses Morgan to slowly get used to it.
>>35465753Okay, so Sparky and Melissa seem to be the consensus. Is that right?>Y>N
>>35466086>YMake sure everyone practices before the big show!
>>35466086YI'm cool with that. We should let the second team head this and keep the starters in reserve.
Rolled 7 (1d20)>>35466086Y
>>35466086"Sparky, Melissa, you'll be backing up Niko on stage. So get into your show costumes and meet her on the Hornet.""All right." Melissa nods."Right away, Boss" Sparky casually salutes.As the two idols head off, you study the map of the projected performance area. You were going to set it in a park late at night. That way there wouldn't be many people around aside from the audience, so it would take a while for authorities or other potential problems from noticing. There were four primary entrances on each side of the park. You currently had 4 idols and K-Zwolf available. You could post an idol at each entrance to screen the audience, but then that would leave them split up and vulnerable to a possible ambush. Or you could keep them closer to the stage where they could support each other, but you wouldn't be able to police the crowd as efficiently.>Post idols at the entrances.>Keep your idols close to the stage.>Other
>>35466320>>Keep your idols close to the stage.
>>35466320>Keep your idols close to the stage.Why would anyone go for the audience, the fans. That's just bad for business and would put unneeded heat on everyone.
>>35466320>>Post idols at the entrances.>>OtherReduce the number of entrances, like 2 with solo idols.Solo idols at the doors, the rest+KZ-Wolf are grouped into a rapid reaction team to support the door guard idols should things go south.
>>35466320>>Post idols at the entrances.>Keep Kzwolf close to the stageSparky and Melissa are on stage that have weapons on hand so they can keep Niko safe
>>35466320>Keep your idols close to the stage.I swear, one of these days we're going to have to hire some guards to do the screening of places for us.
>>35466320>Keep your idols close to the stage.Wouldn't Morgan be on Overwatch from an adjacent building?
>>35466409Generally, official venues have their own private security. It's a different case for surprise events like this.
>>35466431So we might need to have our own guards to keep riff raff out? That's something to consider.
>>35466320Keep your idols close to the stage.Can someone remind me what all K-Zwolf's Recon kit entails again?
>>35466431Merc, when did our influence increased didn't the lower districts we have -5 influence?Also the Hornet isn't listed in the hanger.Also can't Jenner help guard the entrance?
>>35466474I was just catching up on things. It's mostly just minor background stuff.>>35466320"Everybody stick close to the stage. Niko is the priority target here, so I hate to say this, but audience safety is secondary to hers. Do you all understand?"Your remaining idols all nod. They know what the deal is."So you'll all be on standby. Morgan, you'll go set up in an good overwatch position. I'll leave selection to your discretion.""Yes sir." Morgan nods."That means Rochelle, Cole, Julie, and K-Zwolf will remain on the ground as a quick reaction force." You continue. "You see or even have a feeling that something is wrong, you let me know. Got it?""Yes sir!" Your idols affirm."Good, and whatever you do, try to keep it subtle. We don't want to panic or harm the fans.""We'll be careful." Rochelle assures you."Okay. Any questions?" You ask.None of your idols speak up."Good. Everybody load up, then. We're moving out!"You and the idols all pile into the SUV, while Jenner, David, and Falynn follow close behind in the van. Up above, you can see the Hornet flying high above."Producer." Jenner speaks up over the radio. "Perhaps we should create a diversion elsewhere in the district to draw attention away from our main performance.">What kind of diversion are we talking about?>No, we got our hands full with just this.>Other
>>35466459That is what I was thinking. More so now we're on the way up, having our important Idols doing screening jobs seems like a waste to me. If we want them to do a 'Meet the Fans' side event, that can be another matter.
>>35466775>>What kind of diversion are we talking about?Let's keep our options open. Let's see what it is first.
>>35466775>What kind of diversion are we talking about?
>>35466775>>What kind of diversion are we talking about?
>>35466775>What kind of diversion are we talking about? BTW Merc! last thread, a draw anon made puchis out of our Idols. Did he get a star for that?
>>35466775"What kind of diversion are we talking about?" You ask."Well, I've been doing my research on this District, and I've found that the majority of the idol companies based here hold their funds in a particular bank." Jenner displays a map for you, pinpointing a building that was quite a distance away from the park. "If we hit the bank before the performance begins, they'll surely investigate that first and be out of position when they realize we're staging a guerrilla concert.""You're saying that we should rob a bank?" You blink."We just need to make them THINK we're robbing it." Jenner clarifies. "Just drop in, cause some property damage, and get out. It'll tie up both our rivals and the police for a while.">Sounds good. >Sounds too risky.>Other
>>35467100>>Sounds too risky.Seems like too many factors for this plan.
>>35467100>Sounds good.Sounds fun.
>>35467100>Sounds good, but who's doing the property damage?
>>35467100>Sounds too risky.
>>35467100>>Sounds good.If Jenner and Producer do it, I guess we can do it. The Idols are busy as is.
>>35467100>Seems to riskyMaybe instead we should just hack in and trigger the alarm.
>>35467182This is possible.Make them THINK there is a robbery.
>>35467182That's a good idea
>>35467182I support this >>35467100
>>35467100based off of what >>35467182 said:>OtherHack into their systems to trigger the alarm and plant remote detonations to go off.
>>35467182We do have a great hacker on hand. Let her run loose then and have fun.
>>35467100>Sounds good.Have KZ Wolf go in Stealth Mode, go up to the bank, fire some missiles at the side of the building with the vault, then run away.
>>35467100Robbing it is too risky. We don't want to make a bad reputation for other idol companies.>>35467182Hack and trigger an alarm is fine.
>>35467243The main reasons I suggested that was that it'd be less likely to get investigated afterwards.If we blow up a back, the cops are gonna show up in droves, but they're also going to try and track us down.If we trigger the alarm, less are gonna show up, but they'll probably just write it off as a false alarm.
>>35467182I don't think that would work, if you could hack in and trigger the alarm, then you could hack in and disable the alarm. Same amount of risk for no gain.
>>35467243But Meliss- ahem, Sparky is up on stage.
>>35467100>>Sounds good.inb4 we meet up with a group who's actually going to rob the back....or actually just go ahead and rob the bank.
>>35467100"Can't just like... remotely trigger the alarm?" You ask."It's possible." Jenner says. "But the problem is that once they realize it's a false alarm, that's it. They wouldn't be particularly bothered about it unless they see a 'robbery' in progress. Plus, there's the fact that we have to hack the bank's security in the first place.">We should still go with the hacking option.>We'll go with the original plan, then.>We don't need a diversion.>Other
>>35467298Why did you start to say Melissa, she don't do explosives.Unless you were going for Sparky's name, which would be Marisa.
>>35467376>>We don't need a diversion.
>>35467376>We don't need a diversion.
>>35467376>We should still go with the hacking option.
>>35467376>>We'll go with the original plan, then.
>>35467376>We don't need a diversion.Seems like too much work for too little payoff. We will be spread thin and Falynn would be better taking care of technical security like she did in her school's concert.
>>35467376>OtherA mix of both hacking and Original?
>>35467376>We'll go with the original plan, then.
>>35467376"On second thought, we don't need a diversion." You say. "Whatever comes, we'll deal with it.""Whatever you say, Producer." Jenner says.Finally, your little convoy pulls into the park. David and Falynn go about setting up all the equipment and the stage while your idols form a security perimeter. Due to the hour, it was dark and cold, and incredibly quiet."MOVEMENT DETECTED." K-Zwolf buzzes, pointing to the direction of the movement."Anybody got eyes?" You ask."I see glowsticks. Looks like a few early birds." Morgan says. "Don't appear to be armed or anything.">Maybe we should check them out just in case.>Just some dedicated fans. Leave them be.>Other
>>35467927>>Just some dedicated fans. Leave them be.
>>35467927>>Maybe we should check them out just in case.
>>35467927>OtherGo and thank them in person for being such great fans. Maybe give them some teeshirts while assessing if they are here to start trouble.

>>35467927I like the t-shirt idea:>>35467981

>>35467981This would be a good thing I'd say. Seconding.
>>35467927>>Maybe we should check them out just in case.HAVE SOME PROMOTIONAL MATERIAL!
>>35467927"Ah, well, I think we can give them a bit of a welcome party." You say."Are you sure that's a good idea?" Jenner raises an eyebrow."Hey, part of a Producer's job is to deal with the fans!" You nod. "Just keep an eye on David and Falynn.""Got it." Jenner nods."You have eyes on them, right Morgan?" You whisper."Da." You sniper says simply."Okay." You take a deep breath and move forward. "Hey there!" You immediately see three individuals, decked out in glow sticks and other glow thingies. They pause for a second when they see you approach."Who are you?" One of the figures asks cautiously, obviously a girl. "I'm the Producer." You say. "You're here for Niko's concert, right?""Yes!" All three girls squeal. "We're in the right place, right? We're not too late?""You're in exactly the right place, and you're actually an hour early." You chuckle."YES! We get the best seats then!" One of the other girls giggles.>Ask them why they're such big fans of Niko.>Let them continue on their way.>Other

What if Niko knows these people?"Sis?! Cousin!? And...girl who sits behind me in Architectural Design?"
>>35468349>Ask them why they're such big fans of Niko.Do we have any promotional materials for them?If so, make sure they get some.
As wrong as it is to ask, but what do you think Vahlen and Cole were talking about?I think Cole was learning what their dad was like as a person, or maybe Vahlen's medical history (especially for things that are passed down genetically).
>>35468687they have not talked
>>35468778Pretty sure they did last thread.
>>35468806well fuck I missed last thread somehow time to go read it
>>35468349"So, anyways, for feedback purposes, I was wondering if you could tell me what you like so much about Niko?" You ask."She doesn't let the rules weigh her down!" The first girl chirps."She does what she wants and I respect that." The second girl nods."I just think not enough idols play guitar." The third girl says simply.Huh. Guess you shouldn't be surprised. "Hey, uh, Jenner, do we have like any T-shirts or swag we can give these girls?""Heads up."You see Falynn heft what looks like a repurposed mortar tube and it fires with a loud WHUMP, and you see a trio of balled up T-shirts fly out. You manage to deftly catch two, while K-Zwolf leaps into the air and snatches the third one."Well, seeing as you girls are the first ones here," You grin, "you all get free shirts, then!""Sweet!" The first girl jumps excitedly."Anyways, it'll takeus a while to set up, so just sit tight, okay?""Okay!" All three girls chime.Heh, that was pretty cute. You look up and see more and more fans starting to filter in. Suddenly, you hear the rumbling of engines, and you can see over forty motorcycles roar in from the road. You had an idea of who these guys might be."WOOOOOO! TUNNEL SNAKES IN THE HOUSE!" You hear one of the bikers whoop."Of course." You hear Cole sigh.Yeah... this might get interesting.>Remind the Tunnel Snakes to behave.>Leave them be.>Other

>>35468882>Leave them be.
>>35468882"Cole? Do you want to handle this?" You ask."Do I haaaaaaaave to?" Cole groans. "It's so embarrassing!""They're your fans, Cole. At the very least you can tell them to behave.""Fiiiiiiiiine." Cole pouts. You see her stomp up to the approaching procession of bikers, standing in the middle of the road and putting her hands on her hips like a disapproving mother. "Hey, douchebags." The entire procession screeches to halt. Some of the bikers in the back who can't see the front begin to complain, but are quickly silenced."Boss!" The lead biker croaks and bows his head. "It's an honor!""Yeah yeah." Cole shakes her head. "Listen, this is my friend Niko's first big concert, and I do NOT want you idiots screwing it up, you go that? I find out any of you are misbehaving I will shove my foot so far up your ass you'll be tasting leather for weeks!""She's so amazing!" One of the bikers whispers."W-we'll do our best, Boss!" The lead biker nods quickly and turns to his flock. "Isn't that right, guys?""YEAH!" They all cheer."Kill me now." Cole grumbles silently to herself and to you."Not until you fulfill your contractual obligations." You chuckle."Producer, we're just about ready to begin." Jenner says."All right." You nod and key your radio to Niko. "Niko, it's showtime. Are your ready?""Yeah!" Niko says happily. "Actually, I sorta came up with last minute thing that would make the entrance ULTRA COOLER!

Everybody get into position." You announce. "Start it off!"With that, Falynn steps onto the stage, a bit nervously, before clearing her throat and putting the mic up in front of her mouth."HELLO, FANS!" Falynn yells. "YOU WANT TO SEE A CONCERT!""YEAH!" The audience booms."What's that?" Falynn playfully puts a hand up to her ear. "I don't think I heard you! Maybe you don't want a concert after all! Do you want it?""YEAAAH!" The crowd booms even louder, loud enough to rattle the windows of the surrounding building."All right!" Falynn grins and points up to the sky. "Then without further ado, let's hear it for NIKOOOOOOOOOOO!" NEMO then turns on the Hornet's running lights as it comes down for a landing. You can see Niko hanging out of the side, waving at the crowd as the craft descends, with Melissa subtly keeping a grip on her safety harness just in case.>roll 3d20

>>35469501Unfortunately, Niko probably could have handled the landing a little better, as she loses her foot and stumbles out of the Hornet as it hovers above the stage. Fortunately, Melissa and Sparky are quick enough to grab her and pull her back from certain peril, though you feel it couldn't have set a good impression with the audience. Thankfully, Niko powers on through the setback and does her second take, dropping on the stage and holding her arm out just in time to grab her guitar which Melissa throws from the Hornet. Melissa and Sparky both leap down from the Hornet as well, taking up flanking positions beside Niko."HEEEEEEEEEEY EVERYBODY!" Niko yells through her mic. "YOU ALL READY TO GET YOUR FACES MELTED!""YEAH!" The crowd cheers."All right!" Niko grins as she gets to work on her guitar.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rgQeQlEsEkMMeanwhile, your other idols keep a wary eye out for possible threats."Producer, I'm getting reports of a mob heading for the park." Jenner says. "Seems like they're intent on causing trouble.""Haters?" You ask."More like a probing attack." Jenner says. "Probably rival fans coming to try and derail the concert.""I also have a visual of Tunnel Snakes moving in to intercept." NEMO adds. "The likelihood of a violent confrontation is extremely high.""Well, the Tunnel Snakes will certainly keep the mob busy." Jenner says.

You Cole slink away in the darkness as she "borrows" a Tunnel Snake bike to head to the scene. Through her visual feed, you can see the Tunnel Snakes have already formed a picket line, while the rival fans were starting to gather and build up numbers."Should we get 'em?" The lead biker grins as he sees Cole approach, cracking his knuckles in anticipations.""No, I don't want a brawl on out hands." Cole grunts. "Just keep an eye on them and make sure they know you're watching them. But don't start anything.""Boss!" The leader starts to tear up.

>>35470019>Just have the Tunnel Snakes hold position.It's just like a staring contest.
>>35470070Too bad we can't make funny faces at them to make them lose.
Guys, are there any reasons to not turn this concert into an impromptu mosh pit?
>>35470019>Just have the Tunnel Snakes hold position.Get Cole to put on a quick light show. That should discourage the majority of them. The ones that don't get the message are probably the instigators planted by the rival agency.
>>35470019"Just hold position there, Cole." You say. "As long as they don't try to start anything, we should be fine.""Got it." Cole nods and turns back to the mob. "Better not get any ideas, assholes."She then outputs a little bit of electricity. Just enough to light herself up with small arcs of lightning, which causes the mob to back off for a bit."Producer, I'm detected a VTOL moving towards the park at high speed." NEMO warns. "I'm giving you a visual of the markings.""That looks like it's Maid Entertainment." Jenner says. "I don't think I need to tell you what they specialize in." "Damn." You grunt. Rival idols already on the scene."It looks like they're landing." NEMO continues. "Well outside the operational area. Perhaps they want to talk?""I have a bead on their VTOL." Morgan says.>Send your idols to meet the newcomers.>Have Morgan take the shot.>Other
>>35470255>>Send your idols to meet the newcomers.No need to get violent. Not yet anyway.
>>35470255>>Send your idols to meet the newcomers.
>>35470255>>Have Morgan take the shot.Always kill the maids
>>35470255>Maid EntertainmenI bet the Producer or Lead Idol is named Elizabeth
>>35470255>>Send your idols to meet the newcomers.Also, maybe meet the maids? Turn on your D(iplomacy) gland on and see if it sticks?
>>35470255I wonder could this be a distraction. Just keep an eye on them and we'll see what happens.
>>35470255>Send your idols to meet the newcomers.And yeah, meet them ourself. Looks good, and P-san's no slouch. Morgan covers us, of course.
>>35470311that's a reference to a /d/ quest isn't it.
>>35470417Nah, Merc's first quest involved a spy putting on a maid outfit for an infiltration. The spy was named Elizabeth.
>>35470447ah, my mistake. /d/ has one called slaveworld quest right now, the main character's head maid is named elizabeth too, I guess its just a good name for maids
>>35470255"Morgan, keep an eye on the concert." You say, heading for the SUV. "Rochelle, Julie, you're with me.""Right." Rochelle nods as she takes her place beside you. Julie, as well."Stig, get us to that VTOL."Stig nods and guns the engine. He ferries you past the outskirts of the park and to an empty parking lot, where the rival VTOL has landed. Standing in the middle of the parking lot is a lone girl, dressed in a maid outfit, of all things. However, despite her odd style of dress, she looked every bit as dangerous as one of your own idols."Clover Entertainment." The maid says. It was a statement, not a question. "You should not be here.">Care to at least introduce yourself?>What are you going to do about it?>Other
>>35470508>>Care to at least introduce yourself?
>>35470508>Care to at least introduce yourself?>And why should I not be here?

>>35470508>>Care to at least introduce yourself? Or at least give a us a reason why we're supposedly banned from this district?
>>35470508"Care to at least introduce yourself?" You raise an eyebrow."You may call me Maria." The maid idol curtsies politely. "Again, I ask that you cease and desist this unsanctioned event.""Any particular reason why?""Because my Master says so." Maria says simply, giving a very calm but determine stare. "What is your answer?">Sorry, no can do.>I'll think about it.>Other
>>35470723>>Sorry, no can do.
>>35470723>>Sorry, no can do.Let's be honest here.

>>35470723>Sorry, no can do.
>>35470723>>Sorry, no can do.Our sincere apologises but we too cannot afford to back down
>>35470723>Sorry, no can do.Toss her a Niko tee. "Your welcome to come enjoy the show though."
>>35470723>>Sorry, no can do. and>>Other"Perhaps me and your master can come to some sort of arrangement."Either come to an agreement, or at least stall for time. How much of Nico's set is left? Like three hours? Think we can stall that long?
>>35470723>Sorry, no can do.I would really like to resolve this non violently but I have no idea what we could offer them.>>35470774Seems reasonable.
>>35470723>>Sorry, no can do.lolnope.jpg
>>35470774Actually, shit. Think this may have been a feint? Paranoia in me is saying that there's other elements getting into place while we talk.
>>35470723"Sorry, no can do." You say, matching Maria's calm stare with your own."Regrettable." Maria says simply.>roll 1d20

>>35470910And in the blink of an eye, Maria disappears. You almost don't catch the fact that she's already on the move. However, Julie is already there, sliding in between you and the maid. Maria's gloved fist strikes Julie's shield with a loud CLANG. However, your own idol manages to stand her ground. "Hmph. This might take longer than anticipated." Maria frowns."It looks like it's just her." Rochelle says. "We can handle this, Producer.">Leave Rochelle and Julie to keep Maria busy.>Leave Rochelle to battle Maria.>Leave Julie to battle Maria.>Other

>>35471046"Okay Rochelle, Julie, I'm leaving this to you." You say, retreating back to the SUV. "We won't let you down, sir." Rochelle nods as she turns to face Maria."Huh, never had a maid before." Julie grins. "Oughta be fun."You jump back into the SUV and check back in on the concert. Niko is already well into her set, but neither she nor Sparky and Melissa seem tired just yet.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ATY1JXxLtzI>roll 3d20

>>35471638Morgan fires a single armor piercing round, which punches into one of the VTOL's engines and sends the entire craft spinning in the air. However, the pilot manages to regain control of the craft, and it quickly limps away. Morgan tracks the craft with her rifle, but doesn't take a follow up shot."Nice shooting, Morgan." You say."Thanks." You check back in on the other fronts. Cole is still holding down the fort against the mob, but they're start to get more agitated. Meanwhile, Rochelle and Julie seemed to be at a stalemate against Maria, as none of the girls seem to be able to land a decisive blow on each other."Producer, I'm picking up police chatter. It looks like somebody's tipped them off to the concert." Jenner says. "Should we pull out?"Your initial reaction is to pull the plug on the whole thing. Niko had already gotten a decent number of songs out, and the crowd was clearly pretty satisfied. However, considering most of Niko's fans were anti-establishment, maybe a bit of police interference could spice things up...>Pull Niko out now.>Continue with the concert.>Other

>>35471720"Continue with the concert." You order. "As long as you can.""Hey everybody!" Niko pauses in between songs. "Sounds like the fuzz is on it's way to stop this concert! Should we just call it a night and go home, or are we gonna have ONE MORE SONG?""FUCK THE POLICE!" The crowd roars."I thought so!" Niko grins as she gets ready another guitar solo.Meanwhile, you can hear the sirens and see the flashing lights as police cars being pulling up on the outskirts of the park."THIS IS THE DELTA CITY POLICE!" You hear them bellow over loudspeakers. "THIS IS AN UNLAWFUL GATHERING! DISPERSE IMMEDIATELY AND RETURN TO YOUR HOMES!"However, their voices can barely be heard over the music Niko is playing and the cheering of the crowd. >roll 1d20

>>35471930Finally, the Police seem to have had enough, and start breaking out the tear gas, launching several cannisters into the crowd. You see one arcing over towards the stage, but Niko, without missing a beat, bats the cannister away with her guitar, sending it flying away. Surprisingly enough, you actually see people trying to CATCH that particular cannister like it was a home run ball or something. Christ."Well, it looks like we've overstayed our welcome!" Niko chuckles over the mic. "You've all been great! Hope to see you at the next concert! And don't go down to those coppers without a fight!"With that, Niko hops onto the waiting Hornet along with Melissa and Sparky. Falynn and David hurriedly start packing up the most valuable equipment and loading it into the van. "Stig, let's go pick up Rochelle and Julie." You say. "Cole, you got a ride?""Yeah, I can get one of these losers to take me back." Cole says, and then you hear lightning crack."Cole... are you in the middle of a fight?""...maybe." Cole grunts. "Don't worry, these guys are scrubs, anyways."You just sigh and laugh. "Morgan?""NEMO will pick me up." She assures you.That just leaves Rochelle and Julie unaccounted for. As you pull up, you can see that your idols apparently gained the upper hand, with Julie sitting atop Maria to keep her pinned to the ground while Rochelle keeps an eye on her."Yo, Producer!" Julie waves. "Can we keep her? Please?">Now now, we don't know where it's been. Toss it back.>I'm sure we've got some space in the trunk.>Other

>>35472037"Now now, Julie, a maid is a lot of responsibility. Are you sure you can take care of her?" You chide."Pleeeeaaaaaaase?!" Julie pleads."This is utterly humiliating." Maria sighs."Quiet, you." Rochelle says."All right." You acquiesce. "I'm sure we got space in the trunk. Tie her up and toss her in."Maria shoots you a look."Oh, don't give me that. We're perfectly nice people once you get to know us." You roll your eyes. "Let's go."And with that, after dodging a few police blockades, you embark on your journey back to the office, with a new spoil of war in tow.>Niko's APP increases by 1!>Influence in District 5 significantly increased!>Influence in all Districts slightly increased!>Prisoner Acquired>And that's all for tonight!
