CH2-10a Brichester bound

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

OOC:   NB The server went down in the middle of the night (Jacob, Clay and Greg arrived around 8pm) DOS attack started around 2am. Assuming, everyone was up and about they've had several hours in which to track you down if that is what they are doing. Also from the news after the shoot out which drove you all into hiding, they didn't have a wireless jammer, they simply brought down the three nearest mobile phone towers - subtle they are not.

Andy Wade

Andy helps pack, making sure nothing is left that can help identify them.

"We're not ready to go to Albania yet, we don't have enough information on what to do, we're better off here 'floundering about' than in Albania. Lets up sticks... to a new town and have a re-think on what we're doing."

"Let's not lock away those artefacts yet, I think we ought to get an opinion on them from an 'expert'."

OOC:   Lets de-camp then arrange to meet with Westerlund.
We still need to identify 'who' is after us!

"Now there's a thought," says Liz. "You can always say they were given to you by an anonymous source. Good old Anonymous, the most prolific writer there ever was."

"Sounds good, I didn't see anyone out there, but they could be watching us. We need to double back a couple times to make sure we aren't being followed." Clay says. As he finishes packing everything we move it out to the cars.

OOC:   That maybe, but our characters don't know that at all. We assumed it was a jammer, and we have no idea of the capabilities of this group we are facing. Even if they traced us,it would be to the hotel, not to a room. But Clay doesn't like coincidences.

Assume the cars are loaded and driven around aimlessly for an hour or so while everyone tries to see if either has a tail - neither do as far as anyone can discern.



OOC:   I was sure I mentioned that post the incident? - if not my bad. It was immaterial it was more about its potentially been several hours since the site/server came down that was all, you can read that as they're not here yet or they've had bags of time to take you down if they've tracked Liz's location.Your behaviour is exactly the same behaviour as I as a player would exhibit.  


OOC:   I believe you now have the professors details so can ring him directly.

OOC:   I think the info regarding the mobile tower being cut down was in the segment detailing Andy's recuperation whilst in hospital.

Andy will arrange a convenient meeting with Westerlund once they've chosen a new location.

Did we get a reply to the email sent to the address that Gossham used for his 'Mysterious benefactor'?

Spoiler:
That would explain why I didn't see the information about the towers being taken down. I didn't get to read that thread.

OOC:   Its easy enough for you to make a phone call to the Professor (you have his details from the last meeting) in which case he'll agree suggesting you meet either in the pub where you met last time or at his office in the University.  


OOC:   With regards the email no there is no response - MrHandy can you just summarise any precautions you took when sending the mail, I cant find the original post.

I don't remember either, but I'm sure I would have used a Hotmail account registered and used from some other IP address that has no connection to me.

OOC:   Guys, I'm waiting to hear where you are meeting the prof and who is going? BTW, if you wanted more privacy at the pub it does have a function room you could probably rent for an hour or so.

Albert gives Liz a call

Hey lady, hows tricks? I'm just about done over here, are we agreed on what's next? Do I need to buy an English-Albanian pocket dictionary? he goes quiet as Liz recounts the events with the server and their rapid vacation of the hotel.

Hmm, ok, not good but glad you're all out of there. Let me know a time and I'll meet you at the pub with the prof

Spoiler:
Last time around I only failed on fumbles, assuming the same applies this time as it's basically the same thing:

Forgery[80]

For the ids
Papa Gateau rolled 5d100 and got a total of 252:

For the credit cards
Papa Gateau rolled 5d100 and got a total of 232:
41, 66, 57, 43, 25
Yeah, well, sometimes nothin' can be a real cool hand.

Spoiler:
Yes that is fine but it takes more than the 12 odd hours you've been away to do all the work, you reckon 72 hours is the fastest you can do it in, without risking quality.

"It should prolly just be the three of us who met him before who go to meet Westerlund," says Liz. "The rest of you could watch our backs, unless there's something else one or more of you want to follow up on."

"Just tell him the story has been picked up by a TV company and the rest of us are there reps, I'm happy to stand outside or wait in the car to keep watch" says Greg.

OOC:   I'd rather everyone was present when possible to prevent people getting bored. Unless people have a specific reason not to head elsewhere.
