The team is still waiting on the intel from Simon, are encouraged to check out the night life of Detroit. The team decides to check out a few spots that are recommended by Simon.
Thunderbird is the first to wake up, he’s laying completely naked on a massage table in a room decorated in traditional Japanese minimalism. Reaching out the Matrix he is only able to find a local network with six silent running devices clustered within a few feet of each other.
MeMaw and Juggs wake up in a Japanese spa room as well being attended by a hospitality drone. BAG wakes up in similar surroundings.
The team, unsure of how or why they are naked in what appears to be a Japanese style spa begin searching for one another. When a hospitality drone attempts to stop MeMaw and Juggs from leaving, Juggs destroys with with her bare hands. A Ork Phys-Adpet is not to be trifled with even when wearing only a soft cotton robe.
Thunderbird makes the starting discovery that when he is actually in contact with his decoy deck he is able to see the Matrix, but when he uses his natural abilities it is once again only a local network with six silent icons.
The team finally all meet up in the room with Thunderbird and shares what information they have. BAG suggests trying to hack one of the icons that Thunderbird is able to see in the weird isolated local network. More hospitality drones and what appears to be a human employee of the spa begin banging on the room door demanding entry.
Thunderbird is able to successfully hack on of the icons, but is unable to determine what the device is as it is not registered and he has never encountered one before. There is a coded series of commands and Thunderbird begins the process of running the commands to see what will happen. As Thunderbird executes all the commands on the device, Juggs falls lifeless to the floor.
Memaw is immediately distraught and blames the robots outside the door, BAG confirms that Juggs body is not just unconscious but lifeless.
Juggs wakes up as the door to the stasis pod opens and disconnects tubing from her. She is in sealed room with five other Stasis pod. Three containing the rest of her team, and two containing a pair of elves she has never seen before. Juggs decides that the best course of action is to get BAG out of the stasis pod next, and lacking any proper tools or ability to interface begins forcibly destroying the stasis pod.
The opening of one pod and attack on the second alerts the people running the stasis pod facility and a person is sent down to investigate. BAg is free of his pod by the time the facility crew come in the door. In the virtual reality BAG falls over dead.
With the room door in the real world open Thunderbird now sees the building’s wifi signal, though weakly as the rest of the room is still shielded. He is able to quickly get in communication with his team on the outside and begin shutting down all the stasis pods in the room. From files he recovers from the central system he learns that BAG and one of the unknown elves was marked to be chopped up and their cyberware sold. Juggs, MeMaw, Thunderbird and the other elf were going to undergo the drugging and mind-wipe process to make them Joy Dolls (sex slaves).
BAG and Juggs make short work of the kidnapper. The rest of the team and the elves are freed from the stasis pods and with the help of the deeply mistrustful elves they fight their way out of the compound and escape into an alley on the streets of Detroit. Once above ground all their devices sync and the team realizes they have lost three days and have several messages from Simon, who has located the information they need to find Lycos.
