The runners make their way to Skyline Drive, where they set up camp and discover the presence of a group of teenagers. While waiting, March returns to 66 High’s node in an attempt to learn more of the gang, their involvement with the Commonwealth Troopers, and the reaction to the group’s decimation of the ambush. Johnny and Kiku spend a decent amount of this time interrogating their prisoner, only to discover that he is more afraid of one of the gangers, named Faust, than anything the crew might do to him.
Providing sniper cover of the road, Donavan spots an ATV sporting an assault rifle. Sanura, providing astral overwatch, takes a moment or two to investigate and decides to follow the young man who steps out, trailed by a trio of spirits. He traipses through the woods until he finds and attacks another Awakened, later identified as Faust. Faust leaves the man, Daniel, to bleed to death in the forest while he argues with David Creek, titular leader of 66 High, over whether or not to burn down the Bed and Breakfast in retaliation for the failed ambush.
The group tends to Daniel’s wounds and convinces him to join them, whereupon they set up their own ambush near the B&B to capture the incoming gangers. After Kiku warns Delilah and the trap is being set, March rigs the outcome of a poll being used by the gangers, convincing David that he has enough support to launch his attack.
In the ensuing fight, March exploits a flaw in the OS of the ganger’s bikes to force them to a stop before Donavan brings down a tree and opens up with a grenade of tear gas. Sir Rivalen, an English knight summoned from his slumber by Johnny, and Kiku team up and time their attacks on the north flank to disguise Kiku’s presence and forcing a disproportionate number of gangers to focus their efforts on this front. Donavan’s tree creates a firing line, while the southern flank is temporarily bogged down encircling the underbrush and refuse of the downed tree.
Supporting Sir Rivalen, Sanura cloaks him in a spell of invisibility while her Spirit of the Earth begins tethering gangers, slowing their escape from the area of Donavan’s tear gas. The gangers respond by first taking down Donavan, who had been exposed atop the turret of the ATV, then punching several rounds into Sanura while Johnny uses the spell Hot Potato to break up the advancing southern flank of the gangers.
Daniel’s own spirits lend a certain amount of distraction, though most of his usefulness comes from healing Donavan to continue fighting. All the while, motorcycles keep flying amongst the enemy, tearing out from underneath them and generally creating an atmosphere of chaos amongst the frightened and confused gangers. About then, after most had dropped their weapons and all hope for order was lost, the tear gas kicked in, dropping many of the gangers still standing. The few that remained were swept up by the group’s spirit servitors.
David Creek was separated out from the mess, to be turned in for the bounty, and the remaining gangers were tied to the nearby trees, naked, as a warning to the rest of 66 High. Shortly thereafter, Huey informs March that the rest of 66 High is pulling out of Fauquier County.
