But I was talking with Vann and we have an idea and I am putting it here so we all can see it at once.
Grace can find the blue prints to the cruise ship and (maybe Grace can remember if Uncle Steel every told her what type of luxury ship he uses for this private yacht)print them. With Lilianna, the brother's and maybe Asante's help, we can figure out where the wedding is being help, we can figure out where they are hiding Daniel, where Templeton yacht is docked and where the wedding is being held.
When we arrive, Lilianna could kick up a fuss and ask that she be allowed to take two of the 'new friends' she made to her wedding (Angela and Catie). That way we have two members of the crew inside.
The brother's can go in and maybe with someone's help (like J.C or the Captain) and go get that 'package' of Badgers. We can lie and say that the brothers are bring Jon or J.C along so that they can determine if the package will fit with our very limited amount of space. We smuggle the still alive Daniel onto our ship and the brother can sneak off to find their colt.
Then either by sneaking her on or by saying she is 'assisting' Asante, we get Tess inside and she goes after Steele's yacht. Grace can (hopefully) hack into the system of the cruise ship and deactivate the security and Tess could pilot the luxury ship a good distance away or we let Asante and her crew get a hold of it.
Once we have everything, Catie and Lilanna can approach Baron for a meeting. Business man to Business woman style. We tell the Baron that we know what he and Steel is up to and if they don't back down and let Lilanna marry who ever she pleases, we are sure the media would love to hear about their darling Princess being force to marry someone against her will. Since we have Daniel, Baron can't use him against him.
Then for Steele, we hold his yacht, and whatever goodies that he is hiding in the yacht, hostage and we will only return them if he signs over the mining goods to Asante (or us so we can sell it to Asante for a nice chunk of money) If he doesn't, well I am sure there are plenty of gun collectors who pay handsomely for his guns.
Everyone wins in that way. Lilianna is free, Daniel is free, we get paid, the brother's have an opportunity to steal back their colt and Asante gets her lands and we keep our heads.
It seems to me there was GM that told me to stop giving him ideas.
When the GM sees all the ideas in Q&A they have time to figure fun ways to make the story interesting if plan just happen to go wrong.
But OUR GM would NEVER do that, would he?
So open planning is ok with me. So far I see a lot of stuff that is similar to what I was thinking. Because of the unknown plot twists this won't have the precise timing of Oceans 11.
Steele and the Baron are use to playing the dark side of the rules and bring pressure to bear with extreme prejudice.
They can claim security breach and that we were putting the threatened Lillianna in danger. They have enough money and infuence to spin to their way. We should pit them against each other, fan that fire and slide in while they are creating chaios. We can't play the NPCs but if Catie goes with Lillianna she could mention to the Baron that she thought from what Alsante said was sleeping with Steele and she hopes Lillianna doesn't find out. That startes the ball rolling.
As part of the rich social groups, Grace knows that it is not proper for someone of Steele status to NOT have a pretty young woman on his arm. We already know that he has bad habits with women (and those habits are most likely why the companion guild gave him a black mark) so he can't get a lady with his charm or money
Lianna is young, pretty, a media darling and has a father who really wants something Steele has. Sounds perfect for Steele needs and better yet, Lilanna can't run away.
Well maybe it needs to take a little ride out the dump cute. Let Asents's friends follow it like a crybaby.
Also, Jon is going to be p***ed about being followed, the memory of the EM attack and the loss to Destiny trigger dark emotions.
I feel him about to unleash on Asente.

Feel free to unleash - you are certainly entitled . Just remember, Assante and her crew didn't count on Destiny's speed, so while they may be following, there's no way they could have enacted their plan - we weren't going to slow until we got to the cruise ship
