Liz tells him the date they calculated Fomalhaut will be at its zenith. "We'll need everything and everyone on Malta before that day," she says. "We expect to face about fifteen combatants, at least some of them with gnarly powers, so we'll need enough reinforcements and gear to beat them. Handguns all round, grenades too if you can get them. I'd also like a 12-gauge pump shotgun. What do you and the other chaps want?" she asks Andy.

"We have some...spoils of war we can liquidate," says Liz. "Gold, specifically. You might be able to help with that too, cut out the middleman."

No, I am not interested in dealing in gold and neither will those I deal with they'll want dollars or euros in large denominations. When you tell me how much you have then I can tell you what you can get. says Mitar

OOC:   We can work out what your selling and for how much and what the Prof thinks about it ooc

Spoiler:
I'd rather not sell the artifacts; we're probably going to need those. However, we do have a bunch of gold stuff we've found, much of it in Chapter 1. I don't remember exactly what we have available to sell.

I remember there was some gold stuff taken from the tattoo shop, but I wasn't on the inside for that one.

OOC:   The tattooist's tools were gold but they were only worth about £250, that might get you the shotgun but little else

OOC:   Greg checking in here, haven't posted for a while. Just reading the exchange. I have a thought. Surely the Verbti have some enemies. People just as fanatic trying to stop them. Not sure if we contacted them, would they be willing to fund us and supply backup?

OOC:   There are probably cultural enemies of the Verbetoi, but typically people are shit scared of their scorched earth policy of vengeance think Keyser Söze. That said Mitar clearly has history with them.

Spoiler:
Yeah. he's the one I was thinking of who might oppose them on principle. There was also some gold we recovered from the house at the end of Chapter 1. I saw there was a gold chain that was used to secure a door that we took.

OOC:   BenTheRat - happy for Greg to be there in person if you want to interject. Mr Handy same as the Tattooists tools anything you picked up is not going to make the sort of money you are looking for

Spoiler:
It looks like we'll have to unload one of the artifacts, then. We'll have to be careful that it isn't one we'll need to fight the Verbetoi or stop the ritual. The scepter is definitely useful, with its ability to allow the holder to resist as well as start fires.

OOC:   I agree we need the sceptre.
We can 'liquidate' the coins - and the book if we have to.

OOC:   On the basis of simply selling the gold for material value only, the coin necklace is worth approximately £8000 the Book about £30,000 you could raise this money in a reasonably short time period. Westerlund believes both artefacts are priceless and reckons they could get up to 10 times that money if sold to the right museum or collection but that this will take time. Naturally, Westerlund is aghast at the idea you would simply sell the artefacts off to raise cash.

Spoiler:
Does Greg know which artifacts we might need to stop the ritual. I don't want to sell them either, but I don't see that we have any other choice unless Westerlund has some other source of funding. Could we pawn one? That way we could buy it back later with whatever loot we manage to get off of the bad guys (if we survive, that is). Rudaj is loaded...

OOC:   None of the artefacts specifically, but Greg gets the impression that all would help in some shape or form.
