Placeholder for those heading down to Brichester to talk to Westerlund, investigate the fire at the proofs house.

Let's get down to Brichester then. I'll hire us a car using our false credentials and card - I don't want to be reliant on public transport - I'll pick one up from the airport.
Yeah, well, sometimes nothin' can be a real cool hand.

"They'll still see you when you pick it up," points out Liz. "The coppers may put two and two together if they get your description. We'll have to be careful not to let it be discovered where something happens, and we'd best get something that blends in."

Getting new (false) credentials is important - what about getting Albert in the clear with the law? That's best sorted soon... before any more 'weirdness' ensues :)

I'm not too worried about the law. I've had a think and if I nee to sacrifice my car then so be it.

I can create enough identities and clone cards to keep ahead of the filth and not go bankrupt.

So I'm going to head to teh airport and pick up a hire car with one of teh fake ids and cards.

I'll see you back here in an hour or so.

Albert returns several hours later with a Blue Ford. He was delayed when the first credit card he used failed for some reason and was retained by the rental company.




OOC:   Fumble roll with the forgery. Albert, can make a reasonable press pass with whats on hand, but would be better off at his house. I'm happy for the next post to push us Brichester way.

Andy Wade

Andy looks concerned that Albert is quite happy not to square things with the police. "You'll have to keep your head down when we go to the university then, you don't want to be bumping into people that you know, might make things awkward."

OOC:   On their journey to Albert's gaff Andy outlines a plan, hoping the others can chip in... he's a bit worried about' winging it'.

Their objectives are to a) pump Westerlund for info about Malta (what really got him into trouble) and see if he is involved somehow - b) something similar with Shauna Wilcox

c) revisit the lockup where Gossham's belonging have been stored.

Do we agree?

OOC:   Liz is reasonably confidant Shauna knows nothing about Westerlund's circumstances or anything more about the digs in Malta, while she's certainly been to Malta with Gossham (its the source of the gossip) she seems to have spent nearly the entire time at the pool side.

Spoiler:
Then we don't really need to talk to Shauna again. She's already told me eveything she knows except perhaps the timing of the fire, but that's something that I should be able to find online by searching for articles about it.

Yep that sounds about right to me.

Don't worry, I'll keep my head down.

OOC:   At Albert's house in Brichester the photgrapher quickly creates what to Andy's untrained eyes looks like official press accreditation. Liz meanwhile has created a "conspiracy website" and arranged for its hosting on a free website, she also believes she has created a reasonable piece of spyware which should provide a reasonable chance of backtracking anyone who accesses the site.

Spoiler:
Can my spyware also search the computer's hard drive for files containing relevant keywords (Gosshamm, Verbti, Verbetoi, that sort of thing) and send copies of them to me?

Spoiler:
Yes, I want it to do that. I think it's worth the extra time considering the information we can gain. It doesn't look like we're in any rush. Can it search emails and do keystroke logging too?

Andy Wade

Andy is suitable impressed with Albert and Liz's work. He'll accede to not having to bother Shauna in their enquiries instead focussing on Westerlund. Andy will go about arranging an interview with Westerlund whilst Liz works her magic.

Andy arranges a meeting at the Gate Keeper's a pub just outside Brichester (not far from Westerlund's office at Brichester Uni). Walking in he sees a man sits nursing a pint in the snug who matches Westerlund's description*.

Spoiler:
Will still be working as she keeps coming up with ideas for new features. Your choice as to whether you stop work to attend the meeting.


Spoiler:
An old man, probably in his late sixties to mid seventies, with a fringe of grey-white hair around a balding, and sun peeled scalp. He has the resigned look on his face.


OOC:   I'm happy to assume Andy and whoever chooses to accompany him has done their due diligence with scoping the location out and ensuring its safe. As far as they are concerned it is safe.

Liz strolls in behind Andy, wearing a short blue skirt and a short-sleeved white blouse and carrying a notepad and pen. She lets Andy make the introductions and start speaking, as he is the real journalist.

Spoiler:
I'll pause my work while I attend the meeting.

Albert heads into town and buys a few bit's and pieces before returning home.

Once home he begins work on changing his appearance and making some new id to match.

OOC:   He's not trying any elaborate disguise - just some basics to throw off being casually identified:

Dye/bleach hair - 3 or 4 shades lighter.
Fake/weak pair of glasses that can be picked from Boots or equivalent.
Visit to various charity shops to buy clothes and shoes more suited to his age (no more skinny jeans, biker jacket and cowboy boots).

Under proper scrutiny people would recognise him but a casual glance people would think 'he looks familiar but I can't remember where from' sort of thing  
Yeah, well, sometimes nothin' can be a real cool hand.

OOC:   Without the disguise skill, this will as you surmise not work for anything but casual glances, or with people who are not familiar with him or at least not actively looking for him. Naturally, he now also needs to redo his passport and other credentials.
