Jonny Quest - Blood is thicker

Five years ago, Dr. Benton C. Quest was kidnapped under Race Bannon’s watch. The big-wigs at Intel-One rushed an investigation into how this could have happened and blamed Race for it all. But without concrete evidence they could not convict him with any crime. All they could do was fire him.

Roger T. “Race” Bannon has always been devoted to the Quest family and stayed in contact with the boys despite being under constant surveillance and not being able to see the young men face-to-face, and he has been on the hunt for the whereabouts of the Doctor, with the help of Jade, his ex-wife. A little over a year after Dr. Quest was taken, both Race and Jade disappeared, and the boys have not heard from them since.

It’s been almost 4 years and now Jonny, Hadji and Jessie are in their 20s, and they’ve been gathering clues on their own to the whereabouts of their missing parents, all under the noses of Intel-One as our young heroes suspect a mole within the organization and they cannot trust anyone there. The only thing they’ve managed to find are a few safe-houses that Race and Jade have setup (the one they’ve been to physically is located in Miami)
Six months ago the young heroes began receiving secret messages, via 5-DAC (the AI Dr. Quest created that only the Quest, Hadji and Race can access), it gave them clues to Benton and Race’s possible whereabouts.

1- Some of the messages include a few key code words and phrases that only the family would know, in order to confirm the legitimacy of the message. 

2- Just recently they got a message that asks them to find a person who goes by the handle Mark-IV, who can physically be found sometimes at a net-bar named Under Currents in the city of Miami.

3- The young heroes have once again managed to temporarily elude their Intel-One chaperones and are heading to the net-bar, with their trusty and loyal sidekick, Bandit. They hope that this Mark-IV is on the up and up and that this will finally lead to the men’s location and who’s behind it all.

Meat For The Grinder
It’s currently 2 days after the Witchlight Festival of Caulder. The adventurers of The Golden Shard Adventuring Company, having been instrumental in thwarting the plans of the Immortal Resurgence Terrorists to unleash an Elder Fey monstrosity in the middle of a masquerade ball have made quite a name for themselves in the local Broadsheets. Our 3 intrepid adventurers have been contacted by Airship Captain Alistair Pendrake of the airship Aurora Dancer (and a former paramour of Xandra Coal), to find 6 missing members of his crew that went missing the night of the Witchlight Festival. The missing crew includes his X.O. Mr. Temple, his chief engineer Mr. Johns, plus 4 of his stoutest crewman. The task of finding the men is one he would undertake himself under normal circumstances if he wasn’t currently overseeing the Fey Crystal retrofit of the ship’s main engine, which requires his constant supervision.

Captain Pendrake has been able to ascertain by interviewing other members of the crew that the men went into the Ashgate Ward in search of revelry on the night they disappeared. Ashgate Ward is home to the filthy criminal underbelly of Caulder and known for 3 things: Magma Shine stills, Pit-fighting, and Crime. The 3 members of the party must rush to retrace the steps of the missing crewmen and find them before the Praetorians do.

Part 1
First by interviewing and surviving the rough crowds of a notoriously dangerous undercity tavern known as Slaughterhouse 7. To discover that 2 of the men (Foy and Sinclair) fought and died in a gladiatorial death match vs. The Meat Ripper, a clockwork terror with ties to the Sootrakers Crime Syndicate. And the the remaining four, led by Mr. Temple sought revenge upon the Clockwork and tried to follow it to the Sootrakers hideout.
