A chance occurrence in London's Heathrow Airport leads to a desperate search to find answers to terrible lost knowledge.

CH3-03 Photo Recognition

You leave the burgeoning arms market behind, climbing the slopes of the steeply wooded valley until you arrive in the village of Tropoka the first of three villages which Alex says are the rough distance from Bajram Currie indicated on the sign in the picture. In the market square you quickly identify the small café and the road sign from the first photo. After some deliberation you head north, climbing further up the valley. (largely because this is in the direction the road goes, and you clearly haven't passed any landmarks in the other pictures).

OOC:   Can I have Spot Hidden from everyone, please.

"Where?" says Liz, looking around but not seeing anything of note.

A short distance north west of Tropoka you spot a small roadside shrine at what looks as though its the head of a mountain trail. Tucked into the trees and bushes by the side of the road is a battered looking Volkswagen polo.

Albert zooms in on the car and focuses onto the registration plate,

Hey guys, Maria's car is a VW right? Did we make a note of the registration? I think I can make out the number of it he starts to read out the number

"Yep, that's her car, all right," says Liz. "It's not like there would be two cars that look just like it here, anyway. Let's go give it the once over. Maybe we'll find out where she went or what she's trying to do here."

Spoiler:
I'm glad it's not more of that graffiti, which is what I thought it would be!

"Careful where you walk, lets not disturb any footprints here." Clay looks around for other tire tracks or foot prints and which direction they would lead.

Once they stop Jacob goes out of the car and takes a deep breath and looks around. The mountainous area is beautiful.
He then decides to examine the area in more detail. The kind of trees, flowers and the trail. He search for any road signs that might tell them what lies down the trail. A natural reserve or ruins ? maybe debris that were thrown from passing cars on the dirt road. He is leaving Maria's car to be monitored by the others

Spoiler:
does Clay have a Track skill if so now would be the time to use it.


Nothing seems particularly noteworthy or out of the ordinary to Jacob, the only thing which does seem to stand out is the trees seem more mature and that there doesn't seem to be any obvious clearance, a nature reserve perhaps? Although there are no signs to indicate this is the case.

OOC:   One other thing your spot hidden should also have revealed was as you drove up the valley it becomes clear a significant proportion of the locals are ethnic Verbtoi (at least if the knives/swords hanging off the men's belts is any indication).

Liz gets out of the car and approaches Maria's VW, careful to not trample on any tracks or other evidence of her or anyone else's passage. She has her shotgun with her, just in case.

Placing her feet carefully so as not to disturb any sign, Liz can see the car is full of litter (food wrappers, empty bottles etc) as though Demachi had lived in it for several days, as she gets closer Liz realises nearly every flat surface with the exception of the windows has the been written or carved upon.

Andy gets out of the 4x4, making sure his pistol is in his jacket pocket. Whist Liz approaches Maria's car he keeps an eye out, scanning the tree line.

Liz collapses and starts fitting on the ground by the car.

Greg rushes over and starts to give her first aid. Its the same as when she saw the graffiti in the town he says as he tucks a rolled up jacket under he head.

After a few minutes Liz regains conciousness.

Andy looks on concerned... but Greg seems to have things under control.... "Let's not let Liz[/]b rush into any 'situations; again...." he says.

"Any clues as to where [b]Maria could have gone... Alex where's the nearest village... and what's up that way?"
he asks.. pointing in the direction that the VW was traveling.

Jacob comes to see what Liz done this time. He takes a look into the car and opens the front door and the trunk.

Glancing at Liz to make sure she is OK,Alex turns back to Andrew and points back down the road. "Where we see the cafe is nearest village" pointing up the road and up the trail is mountains. He smiles. "Around here is always mountains. But if she was going further up the road why not just keep driving."
