"Glad everyone made it," Grant said, taking his place at the head of the small kitchen table. His kitchen, like the rest of his apartment, has typical of a working class man: small, and untidy. He had made an effort to clear his usually cluttered table of papers and cartons, instead opting to move them to the counter. There were barely enough chairs for everyone, but minimal room at the table itself. Alright, didn't think this bit through, I'll admit that.

It was a sight Grant wasn't used to: so many different kinds of people at his place. The old guy was definitely sticking out in his mind. Until now, Grant had always been the oldest person in his apartment. He certainly wasn't used to the gentleman with the hair gel fetish, or the crazed-looking anarchist fellow. But none of these people were there to be his friends. They were there to do a job.

He wasn't sure exactly how to start. He hadn't exactly planned a lot of bank robberies before.

"Alright, people. So far, the only thing we got set in stone is the bank, the Bank of America downtown. That's all I got so far, so come on, throw something out here." Grant knew he had to take advantage of each member's skills, and make sure that they'd use their skill to the point that they were worth cutting his take down a fraction.

Ilari had seated himself by one of the walls, the chair leaning towards it just so that the two front legs didn't touch the ground. As the apparent leader began talking, he turned his attention towards him. After listening, he nodded. Okay, so this guy is obviously not a bank robber by trade, his mind concluded. That might make it more interesting.

"Well," he said, seeing as nobody else seemed to be speaking up first, and he'd just hate for this room to fall quiet. "What do we know of the security systems? We should know what our possibilities are before rushing into any kinds of plans here," he suggested, wondering what the mixture of English and Russian in his accent said about him to the others. As far as he could tell from TV, foreigners were mostly criminals. Classy British burglars and rugged Russian weapon-dealers. His presence in the room didn't exactly protest to the criminal part, at least, though he wouldn't define himself as either of the above. Yeah, his first American heist was going to be hilarious.

Grant was pleased that the first suggestion wasn't "let's just wing it, bust in with guns a blazing'.

"We know of the security system is fairly standard." He pointed at the fridge, a blueprint of the bank conspicuously attached to the door. "The back doors are locked and rigged to set off the alarm should anyone attempt to force entry. I don't know if there's a way around that or not, that's why you guys are here. From there, there's no other locked doors that we can tell, other than the vault. Act the part, and we could walk right up to it if we wanted to. Now, the vault. It's locked, bulletproof, alarmed, and only accessible by the computer here." He pointed at a smaller room on the floor plan. "The manager can open the vault from his officer, but it's time locked and he can only open it at a certain time."

"Oh, yes, a few last things I forgot. Cameras, like everywhere. In the alley, in the offices, in the lobby, in the vault. There's also exploding dye packs hidden in the money, set to go off if they trigger the sensors on our way out the door. And there's a few rent-a-cops in the lobby, maybe a few by the vault. They're not our problem, they're not getting paid enough to die for the bank's money."

He stopped there, letting the rest of the team absorb the information.

Bart crossed his arms, listening to those around him. Occasionally, his body twiched, glancing from each person. "Vault is bulletproof, huh? Well, I'd be willing to bet it's not BOMB proof. Haaha! Haha! Haaahahaaahahaa!" He said, bursting into a short mad cackle. "The cameras won't be much of a problem. I can make us some smoke. Nice thick smoke. In grenade form! Just chuck one under a camera, and we've got about five minutes of coverage. The doughnut-dunkers can be handled with a little C5,H11,N2,O2,P! One lungfull of tabun gas? Enough to make a man pass out, shit himself and then blister up his lungs untill he can't breath!" He said, smirking wildly.

"As for primary infiltrations, what's wrong with marching in there. Rent-a-cops have the testicular fortitude of the Golden Girls. Not to mention, their piss-poor use of weapons. No risk of getting hurt other than them. What is stopping us?"

Grant was following Bart's enthusiastic plan right up until he suggested seizing the bank violently. He cut in.

"If we're seizing the bank by force, we're in for a hell of a tougher time. That cuts our time to get into the vault down to mere minutes. There's no way we can guarantee we stop absolutely everyone from hitting the silent alarm. There's no way to guarantee the vault doors don't lock-down as soon as the alarm is triggered." He paused. "Of course, we get a few guys inside, be standing where they need to be, then take the lobby to buy us time, that might work, if we're hell-bent for some violence. What's uh, what's everyone's stance on Valcoda's idea?"

James leans back and chuckles at their foolhardiness. "Taking something by force only ruins its quality. As for the security, I can hack nearly anything computerized. As for the bomb, it's not wise to use explosions near hostages while inside a building with a questionable structure. If we could find some more information on the structure, our plans could be more definite. Traffic is obviously an issue, as is guard times, guard skills, capacity, average holdings, etc, etc. I can tell you men don't think out all the variables, no?"

He smiles and pulls out a folder from the bag he brought in. As it lands, several papers and pictures slide out. The pictures show men of different races and cultures, all with the same uniform. "I realized you people wouldn't have all the ends cut, so I helped you out. The pictures are of the guards. Their hours are on the sheet underneath. I also have some traffic sheets I typed down after watching the streetlight camera.
"It seems like my Valcoda's idea, it seems a bit. . . what's the word. . . insane! Using combat materials in a closed space with other people is just idiotic. And this is a bank, not some crap-ass police evidence storage room. They will be ready for a fight at any time, and giving it to them won't be easy. I say we do the date-rapist's way: Drug them."

Ilari frowned as the German explained his plan, only shaking his head slightly when Grant asked for their opinion. As James spoke up however, he seemed to lighten.

"Spasibo, thank you, I was almost going to say the same thing myself. To enter in such a way would not only be highly risky, but very unnecessary. I suggest we rather try to find a stealthy way to do this - preferably so that they don't fully realize they're being robbed before we're gone. I don't have any more detailed suggestion for the moment, but I do believe we can rule out a, heh, war. But then again," he leaned back on his chair again, shrugging. "I suppose drugging the lot of them might work, as long as we can make sure there are no difficulties, or reinforcements, from the outside."

Grant nodded as Ilari admonished the idea of seizing the bank by force, but spoke up as soon as he mentioned drugging the guards.

"Let me stop you there. I agree one hundred percent that the stealth approach is the way to go, but drugging isn't the way to go. Too many variables. Body weight, metabolism, things like that. Unless we can get detailed medical histories of every single person we may need to dope, we'll fuck something up at some point. Give buddy too much sedative, we kill him, give buddy too little, he wakes up early."

He pointed again to the blue print on the fridge, specifically at the back of the bank. "We find a way to get in through this door without setting off the alarm, and we can walk right up to the damn vault. Only thing to worry about then is the cameras, opening the frigging thing, and getting the money out."

He knew that the three things he'd just mentioned were hardly minor obstacles. But that's why he assembled the team of experts and professionals that were currently crowding his kitchen.

Bart only listened as he was pretty much slapped in the face with words. He rolled his eyes. "This isn't some goddamn museum heist. We're robbing a bank for Christ's sake. How the hell will we SNEAK in? Put on camoflauge and fake shrubbery? Unless we're going in at night, I don't think sneaking is possible. AND if we try to sneak in at night, the place is going to be locked down even damn tighter. They're going to have twice the security they have during the day. Not to mention, the invisable laser grids they have all over the place, vault door sensors and every other nifty and interesting toys that ALL banks have at their disposal. Ghost isn't possible here, unless we have ten hackers working around the clock inside the building. Sneaking in is about as valid as my idea."

He paused for a second. "Wow. I thought at least I would've had my support."

"Anyway, don't you see what I'm saying? It's a bank, for the love of trinitroluene. Not a fucking convience store. The greedy capitalist pigs don't waste a cent guarding theirs. Getting in without leaving a trace is without a doubt more unlikely then one of us winning the lottery as we sit here and plan this. Is my plan perfect? Not by a long shot. But is it at least a possibilty."

"Drugging by far, isn't a bad idea. Instead of worrying able specifics, why not make something that you KNOW takes them out? Mr. Imbetterthaneveryoneelse's idea is going somewhere. But he's wrong about some things. The cops we're dealing with are not the fucking Seals, the U.S. Marshalls, or even the SWAT Team. They're RENTALS, according to Grant. They went through the police training program, and got a plastic badge and a shitty little Glock 22. They're more likely to wet themselves rather than man up. So I don't count them as much of an obstical. But; since he's done SO MANY bank robberies before, I think we should continue to listen to him. In all sincereity. His ideas have sounded the best to me so far."

"I enjoy your sarcasm Bart, but it's unnecessary. An OD'll kill them, sure, but does that matter at all? We're robbing a bank, not looking for a suspect. Sneaking in isn't Mission Impossible. We need to act inconspicuous, be nonchalant. We'll need some muscle, a con artist, a "ninja", and some hidden hostages. I can assure you, it'll be quick and easy." James smiles at the group and waits for input.

"Exactly. We can walk right in nonchalant, like we belong. Nothing needs to be complicated..."Grant glared at the German fellow.

"You," he added. He pointed once more at the blue print. "This goddamn door is the only thing stopping us from getting a free pass through most of the bank. It's only a study lock, a basic alarm, and a donut-munching bastard watching a camera. No need for explosions or gas or anything like that. And if we can't find a way past this, we're fucked when it comes to the vault. So come on, think."

"I already said I was a hacker, so the alarm is mine," James retorts. "I say Grant can handle the 'donut-munching bastard', seeing as he enjoys taking things to the next level. As for the rest, get some of the quiet ones to work it out. I'm not splitting my money with those who don't cooperate."

"What about the manager?" Ilari asked, as people seemed to have forgotten about him. "If he's the only one who can open the vault at a certain time, one would think we either need to have him in our pocket, so to speak, or out cold. "If Mr. Samson says he can take care of the technological bits, like the alarm and possibly the sensors, then we should figure out how to move on from there. I actually don't think getting in will be our biggest problem," he paused for a second, looking at the others. "That reminds me, how good are you people at lying? A con-man was mentioned, I think we might need more."

"How's this for an idea. I enter the bank all incognito, and jump buddy in the security booth. Then, I go and grab the manager, and bring him over to open the vault once everyone's inside. Or something like that, I don't know. I could come in with a job application, or pretend I really need to talk to my 'brother' and it's urgent." Grant was obviously pulling ideas out of his ass at this point, but he tried to make at least some of them come out confidently.
