We need to get off the island, to central europe somehow and then take a boat from south France, Italy or Greece or we can take the long route along north Africa.
Jacob suggest.
we must leave the UK somehow. maybe a shuttle from Dover to France or from Wales to Ireland and then France.

As for our identities, me and Alber must throw our I.Ds and Credit cards somewhere for the police to find out. Hopefully, they will think we were kidnapped

"If we do that, they'll just keep looking for us," says Liz. "Better that we vanish without a trace. If they can't find us, they may think we died in the fire. Besides, we don't want the Verebtoi finding us either. If we leave any clues behind, that would help them too. But you're right about crossing the Channel to France. We shouldn't even need a passport for that. Then we can just go across France and get a boat out of southern France or Italy to take us to Malta. Once we decide where we're going and we get away from the safehouse, I'll go online and log onto Andy's site so I can give him an update and find out what he knows. I can tell him where we're headed so he can meet us there. Since we'll be going the long way, he'll have plenty of time to catch us up."

Sadly for you guys you still require a passport to enter/exit the UK even if you are going to France - once on mainland Europe inter border checks are largely non existent.

does Clay have a way to smuggle us all to France across the English Channel without going through checkpoints?

considering Clay owes for the safe house still, the answer is no. Probably the best thing would be to get some forged papers.

"I can probably get my hands on the relevant documentation to get us out of the country, but I'll need good passport photos for everyone who needs documentation and I need to go back to my house. I don't think the police will know about the house, the car is registered to my old place and I'm house sitting this place for an old friend who is out of the country." says Albert.

Time to shave my Rabbi beard, wear sunglasses and dress like a German tourist.

"Well, I've got my digital camera here," Liz says to Albert. "I'm a decent photographer, but you're far better than I am. Before we leave, maybe I can stop by my own place and pack if we're sure it's not being watched. I could also get online there and let Andy know where we're headed."

Spoiler:
If you want to leave a message for Andy post to his thread here


By the end of the week Greg is satisfied with everyone's progress and happy enough for people to start being more active (in fact he actively encourages it) Albert is left with a limp, Jacob a very stiff arm and Liz and Clay with some very interesting scars.

Spoiler:
Given a week to think about matters you may take this opportunity to make skill checks.

OOC:   Guys, those of you actively posting may want to decide what your next course of action is Greg says you are good to go, Albert says he can if he gets to his home provide ID to get you out of the country. You have leads aplenty I believe to allow for next steps.

Spoiler:
I already said we should go to Malta next (once Albert arranges for some new passports). I said as much in my PM to Andy. Do I see his reply? If so, we may want to head to Wales first, and we could do that while waiting for passports.

Spoiler:
OK with Greg and Albert's players as non active at the moment, their characters are NPC's and will not use their own initiative so feel to boss them about. However, Albert needs to get home to produce the documents and has no transport to get there. Once there he can be left to his own devices. Basically, in the absence of active players feel free to make decisions and act upon them. I'll always give everyone to chime in.

Well, I can't go, so is Albert. The police are looking for us. Someone else needs to go.

As Liz has access to the interweb via her phone yes she can.


Albert looks up. "I have to go no one else is going to sort out the documentation. If some one can drive me down I can hide in the back seat with a blanket over my head if necessary".

Actually, I used my laptop at home to access the Internet rather than my phone (where I probably have a router), while I was there packing. Does that make a difference?

Having an apostrophe in the title of a spoiler button makes it impossible to open it, but I was able to see the text using the Quote function.
