Clay picks up two of the Baikal opting for a faster fire rate than the extra stopping power of the .45. "I'll take a couple spare mags and a couple boxes of the 9 mm ammo." Clay says. "Everyone get a bit extra and we'll do a little practice out in the desert. You won't be an expert but hopefully you won't shoot yourself in the foot."

"Oh, you speak German," says Liz, brightening when she hears Alex speak. "I understood that: in good health. It's useful to have a language that at least some of us understand and the Verbetoi likely won't. Well, I could sure use some practice too. Will the shotgun be too loud to practice with?" She has already picked out the Norinco HP9-1, which she had spotted right away, and she takes a Makarov as well.

"I speak German, Italian, English and Greek as well as a bit of Russia, but that was Yiddish for the Rabbi" says Alex gesturing at Jacob.


OOC:   You can assume an hour or so is spent in a secluded valley and you become reasonably familiar with your chosen weapon.  


What now says Alex, We try to find the village in the photo?

OOC:   What now guys

I think the Baikal was from earlier.... [em]Clay[/em] sourced that handgun back in the UK.... he also 'got rid of it' after the fire-fight at Prof Mathers' house.

The 9mm pistols on offer are Norico Type-59's a copy of a 'Makarov'.

"Yes, that sounds like our only lead," says Liz. "We know she's been there before, so maybe she went there again. Maybe someone remembers seeing her there, but we'll have to be cautious if we make any inquiries, or the Verbetoi are sure to find out we're poking about."

OOC:   my bad, I was just looking at the gun thread, it didn't really say what was available where, or I missed it.

OOC:   Sorry all - been silent for a while but back now

Albert will also take a shotgun,if there is one to be had, along with the sidearm.  


Yeah, I'd say the village is our best clue to chase her down. he smiles at Liz and definitely the softly, softly approach. We may be tooled up now but I'd rather not stir the wasps nest if we can help it.

I've been practicing breathing since I was born and I've got quite good at it now, I'd hate all the practice to go to waste and have to give it up.
Yeah, well, sometimes nothin' can be a real cool hand.

What about a flash lights and a fire protection vests ?

They were handy last time we encountered them.

"Lights is easy" says Alex "but fire protection vests, this place?" Alex gestures at the surrounding market and then shrugs. "Maybe"

OOC:   There isn't anything akin to the heavy weight fire jackets Clay "acquired" last time. Unfortunately for Albert - Liz has grabbed the only shotgun.

Yeah, some mini fire-exstinguishers would be useful. If we can't find any here, which I doubt, then maybe the cars will have them, most modern cars have a fire-extinguisher in the boot or glove box.

"Oh, yes, please!" says Liz. "Fire extinguishers are a must! This lot likes to use fire."

"This is not a place for modern cars" says Alex looking around the market full of tractors clapped out vans and cars. When someone points out it is possible to spot virtually every model of Mercedes produced since the 1970's. From the plushest new S-Class to battered sedans from the 70's. "They are status symbol. Who wants to drive Trabant or Fiat, if you can have a Mercedes? But for these people I do not think they sell bits of their car"

Then turning to Liz, "Is old wives tales you know. Verbti and fire, I think they use whatever is in their hand and this is those big knives they always carry. All Albanians dislike Verbti, they are like Gypsies, but they are not so easily driven away*."

OOC:   *Yes, Alex holds a fairly typical (for the region) racist attitude towards gypsies and Verbti.

Andy Wade

Andy's barely healed burns itch as the others talk about fire.... and he has to concentrate to stop from scratching but still be shudders at the memory of being ... hunted by the flames...

"Yeah.. I think we have missed the boat, for any specialist stuff we might want... we best make the best of what we have. We best proceed with due caution but we're here to find Maria, so let's be about it..."

Albert smiles at Alex

Yeah, old wives' tales or not, this lot have been more than happy to use fire in the past. Maybe we can get some woollen blankets, we can soak them and store in the cars, or a couple of sacks of sand, at least have something to smother flames if we need to eh?

"Yes, it's better than nothing," says Liz, recalling how she - and possibly all of them - would likely have been killed had they not taken similar precautions before. "They use guns too. I don't suppose there are any bulletproof vests available?"

OOC:   There are indeed a couple of vests which Alex seems to get for free or perhaps part of the package. The vests are old Soviet era, perfectly functional, but heavy, uncomfortable and reeking with the smell of old sweat.  


Spoiler:
There are home grown methods to fireproof materials, but they will probably take a couple of days.


So now we are armed for hare. says Alex "Do we go and find where Maria's photo was taken?"

Liz was unfamiliar with the vests, but she takes the smaller one anyway. "Cheers!" she says, "Well, I don't fancy getting shot, and I'm not as tough as the rest of you, so I'll need one of these. It's uncomfortable, but not as much as a bullet in the chest. I'm ready now. Let's head to the village and see if we can find the location in the piccie."

Both vest are the same size clearly to big for Liz (siz 9) and not designed for women. Whereas Jacob's (siz13) seems a reasonable match.

OOC:   The search will start here feel free to post further comments here, but I'd like to move things along.
