Delivery is to 190 Valencia
Bozuko did recover his damage. A new scene began when we left the garage.
Skipito easily blends in with the top of the ambulance. The wailing siren makes it difficult to hear anything over his headset, though, so for the moment he only hears about half the conversation, and vice versa (others can't hear him well either). He does realize, fully, that he's no longer on the delivery van, however, and can act accordingly.
Bozuko calmly attaches a Starsky & Hutch-style globe to the top of the van, and Rin flips the switch that changes the black delivery van to white, helping with the overall disguise. It won't pass for an ambulance but people do seem to be getting out of the way.
says Bozuko. His -2 for Standing Out does indeed knock him down to the point where nobody notices his wailing (the other ambulance is still louder), but that's probably a good thing under the circumstances.
The Dispatcher says "Stop shouting out the window; if you really want a siren, just play one of the prerecorded sounds from the computer. There's an entire library in there."
Rin does her best to get the team rerouted properly, encouraging Toru to take a quick left onto Austin and a left -- no, a right -- onto Van Ness. Unfortunately, Toru is a little spaced out at the moment, and misses the turn. The team continues in the van down Franklin, heading into oncoming one-way traffic. Luckily the flashing light on top keeps traffic at bay.
Zipdrive's punning keeps the stress level down, so we won't penalize the driving any further this turn.
