16 June, 2025 – Dubai, U.A.E.
A chase through the sleeping city ensues. The party is pursued by numerous Emirati police interceptors as well as the remaining police helicopter.
Again, Mike’s powers of mind control are used to great effect, while John in the machine gun turret and Daphne with the Barrett, combined with Emily’s electronics disruption, repeatedly foil the strafing runs of the chopper. However the party does hear the approach of new helicopters, which Cole identifies as military gunships by their sound.
After crashing through a roadblock, the party finds themselves briefly without pursuers and abandons the APC in a parking garage. They hotwire two cars and approach the marina from two directions. The marina was blocked by a small police cordon, and after some maneuvering the party splits up and approaches from different directions.
Hugo, Daphne, Emma, and Cole remain unseen and hop the fence into the marina, find the target yacht, and go about hotwiring it. Mike and Seamus head down the coast a ways and swim to the breakwater in the dark. Jamie and Emily walk through the world of the dead and make it to the boat, but are spooked back to the real world by something that appeared to be a fiery approaching storm. Margaret and John talk their way past the police and walk to the boat.
The party steers the boat out past the breakwater and into the dark seas, leaving the chaos of Dubai behind, but before long they hear the sound of gunships in the distance….
