===Team Backstory===
 
* From Knight
 
** "Some militia types decided, I guess, to fund their whole get-away-from-society thing by taking every bit of money out of a bank. But it was a shitshow, and there were hostages, and they had, like, AR-15s and explosives and shit, and they just didn't care, and the cops couldn't handle it."
 
* From Measure

* From Rook
 
** To win the fight, the team broke "Laws. Lots of laws. Federal and local. Mainly they were threatened by the police with: vigilante-ism without a license, assault, breaking and entering, reckless endangerment of the hostages, endangering a minor (the cops threatened each of them that they could be charged with 4 counts of endangering each other, which Theresa was pretty sure was not how things worked), obstruction of justice, and they were threatened with theft if anything was reported stolen."
 
* From Bolo
 
** Bolo is a bit of a loner, but has started to learn from Paladin how to spot potential when he sees it (and just the general value of being a part of an intentional community) and this group could be a good thing.
 
** The team stays connected through an encrypted smart phone app
 
* From Obsidian
 
** We saved Big Mama, a black woman who runs a saloon that's also a grocery store, Internet cafe, FLGS, karaoke, library, and just any other places that young people can go to spend their time. She has no ties with any criminal or police or anything, but she's well-respected by the community, and her shop is considered neutral territory; starting a fight there or trying anything against her is perhaps the only way to unite the people against a common enemy. She tries her darndest to keep the kids who comes to her place on the straight and narrow, with mixed success, but that never stopped her.
