I think last night's Mob War game rocked on toast. We introduced a new PC, Ray's obese burglar Dre (turns out Ray slept through the last get-together) and played out a little caper flick sort of an adventure. The PCs pulled a con job on the local law enforcement of Madison, Wisconsin, convincing the Chief of Police that they were federal agents. A joint taskforce then proceeded to take down the Tolino Mob's convoy of Canadian whisky. I had a rip-snorter of a time, even though the PCs offed my two favorite Tolino mobsters, the Basque and Butcher Bertello. The Basque died an ignominious death, but Butcher went out like a man. I'm not sure how much material I have left for this micro-campaign. The escalation of mob violence has reached a fevered pitch and I'm not sure how much longer it can be sustained. Still, it started as a one-shot and I never promised more than 6 sessions, so I only have three more sessions to bring Lakefront City down around the PCs' ears.
Best moment of the night for me had to be when the guys realized that one of the Tolino gangsters was packing a World War I army surplus flamethrower! Their reactions were priceless.
