Episode Two - The Plot Thickens..

Journey with us to an alternative 1898, where history rubs shoulders with imagination. Where ‘what was’ is replaced by ‘what might have been’. Leagues of Adventures presents, for your edification – ‘The Dreaming Spires, episode one of the Great Game Campaign’.

“... A time when science itself stands poised to usher in a new golden age, or doom the world to terrible war.
In the ancient university of Cambridge, the scion of an aristocratic family has gone missing, unearthing a plot which threatens to plunge the British Empire into chaos.
Can the intrepid globetrotters solve the Cambridge conspiracy before it’s too late? What secrets lie hidden beneath its dreaming spires?”

Spoiler:
Character's IC Observations,
You can all deduce (separately and in combination)
  • If there is such a thing as the 'Apostles' dinner - it would be well under-way by now if not finished - if it was to be held today.
  • Harcourt would definitely know if his famous namesake (The Chancellor of the Exchequer, no less) was in Cambridge.
  • Judging by the actions of the people at Fen House - Choker et al - they weren't preparing to initiate any plans tonight.
  • 3 shootings? One would have been that chase on the rooftops earlier, the second (as far as you're concerned and the facts reported to the Inspector) would be the shots fired at the cab as detailed by Alf ... the third could be the fracas at Fen House but if so why would the Inspector be at the College? Was there another incident?

"Come to think of it," says Rachel, "it doesn't seem like the assassination is planned for tonight. We may be better off cooperating with the Inspector and trying to enlist his aid. Something he said strikes me, too. He said there was one more shooting than we know about, and he was here when we arrived. Could there have been another shooting here in our absence?"

Taking the pipe from his mouth, Jonathan says, "Yes, you're right." Tamping the tobacco he continues, "Another shooting is quite interesting. While it may be unrelated, it's definitely worth looking into."

At the main Gates of Trinity College

Harcourt stands watch over you waiting for transportation to arrive.

Roxburgh nods and agrees with his companions deductions ""Look here Harcourt... we want to co-operate with you, indeed it is our patriotic duty.. for in rescuing young Ponsonby from his captors we have stumbled upon a diabolical plot to strike at the very heart of our great nation..." Roxburgh launched into an impassioned appeal, drawing on his aristocratic heritage to try and ingratiate the party with the dour Inspector. "... We are more than prepared to cooperate with your investigation... ooof!" he exclaims as Nellie elbows him in the ribs.

"What he means is... was there another shooting here? After that horrid man shot poor Jonathan I mean?" Nellie asks the Inspector, evidently unable to wait for Roxburgh to get to the point.

"Not here no... but the circumstances warranted an official visit here as you four may have been involved, indirectly of course..." he adds the last part hastily, reminded that Roxburgh is a 'Lord' and that he had better not rush to make assumptions that might have consequences. "There was a shooting... the cabbie.. MacPherson he was shot and mortally wounded as my officers were escorting him into the Police Station..."

Spoiler:
There will be time to ask a follow up question before the Police carriage arrives.

"MacPherson was employed by Professor Choker, who is behind the kidnapping and the plot against the Chancellor," says Rachel. "I suspect Professor Choker had him shot to ensure he wouldn't talk. Do you have any leads on the shooting? From which direction and angle did the bullet come? Was he able to say anything?"

Spoiler:
Edited because I forgot the villain's name. Whoops! :oops:

"That's right, Rab was working for Choker, 'e was right made up about it an all, said that Choker 'ad deep pockets..." Alf pipes up, confirming part of Rachel's comments.
