Time: Sunday June 3, 2095 - 1:54 AM
Weather: A deluge of rain pounds against the building and can be heard over the roaring din of the crowd.
Kit stops in the middle of the room and places her tray of drinks on the table next to her and stares at the doorway for a moment. Several things happen at once. Her cheery demeanor disappears and something like rage tinged with panic replaces it. Black Swan and Whiskers receive a live video feed which they can share with their team if they choose. The noise level in the Downside drops by half as other teams receive the same video feed that Black Swan and Whiskers receive. The locals are momentarily oblivious and continue their conversations.
The Downside's entrance unlocks and slides open. The lights immediately dim to low, and what previously seemed to be some sort of party lights begin strobing brightly. Those with infravision can see light strobing in that spectrum, too. The strobe effect is angled towards the entry and is only a mild inconvenience to those facing towards the entrance.
A tiny drone zips through the door first, and Kit pivots when her leading foot strikes the floor and flings a small dagger at the surveillance drone. The dagger neatly nails it to the wall where it sparks then dies as she continues pivoting full circle. She reaches the security door and regulars begin reacting. A mountain of a rhinoceros hybrid in gang colors steps in front of Kit as she opens the security door to step inside.
The unit's vanguard lobs a pair of grenades into the Downside. One is smoke and covers their entrance while the second is a flashbang. Most patrons are prepared for this tactic and manage to protect themselves from the worst of it. Kit returns from the back room with a monster of an assault cannon and hands it to the rhino hybrid. The vanguard secures the entrance for their unit, and more enemies begin hustling inside. None of them say a word as they seek cover and line up shots.
Two more drones zip in and begin darting around the room when Kit reveals a pair of sleek custom revolvers as she steps out from behind the rhino hybrid. Everyone in the Downside Security network hears her snarl through their TAPs, "What the hell are you idiots waiting for, an invitation? Shoot, maim, kill!"
With that declaration, Kit begins the Battle for the Downside with a crack bullseye shot between the eyes of the nearest armored enemy. His head snaps backward and he falls to the ground as all hell breaks loose.
