Dice roll summary:
Whutaguy/Skipito: 54 = 9

Lorthyne/Bozuko: 40 = 10
Wroe/Rin: 14 = 5
In traditional Ninja Burger Driver fashion, Toru guns the engine before the airbag light has had a chance to go out, before he knows where he's going, before, even, anyone gets their seatbelts on. He manages to get the van up the ramp and onto the road [roll of 4 + Stunt Driver of 2 = 6), but in so doing the van gains some air, scrapes the top of the tunnel, and then hits the road and bottoms out. Something that looks and sounds important clunks around and falls off. It looks dishy. For the moment nothing bad appears to have happened, but the van does sound a little louder.
Oh, wait, that's just the sound of Skipito yelling. Luckily, a good roll (9) prevents him from falling off and rolling away, and he manages to clamber into the underside of the van through an escape hatch and belt himself in. [OOC] Just a reminder, be sure to indicate in your posts any Qualities you want to call on [/OOC].
"Tatsuya-san! Left or right?", shouts Toru as he (flips coin) turns left without waiting for the answer. Luckily, "Left" is the reply, and he gets things pointed in the right direction.
As he turns, Kitaro barely manages to stay upright long enough to belt in. Bozuko, apparently finding some inner reservoir of balance, is able to ignore the belt for now and prepare some of the equipment in the back for deployment. Through an amazing coincidence, he manages to find the switch that turns on the monitors that display the view from the cameras around the vehicle. Suddenly, everyone in the van can see in all directions around the van (including up and down) by just watching the side wall of the van. Something on top of the van is sparking a bit.
"Alright, baring any unforseen misfortunes," says Rin,"You're gonna want to follow Stockton until you hit California. Then hang a right and follow California until you hit Van Ness, take a left onto Van Ness and follow it up until Market Street. Turn right on Market, then follow Market for four blocks and turn left onto Valencia St."
The Dispatcher cuts in over the headsets... "KSHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHMarkSHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHacciKSHHHHHHHHHHHHH".
That's static, folks. Guess what fell off?
