"We also need to work out which site... which temple they're going to use. It's got to be the one where they found the 'impossible' statue, right? You reckon that if we could 'destroy' the temple then that would put a stop to it?"

"No doubt, Alex does know people that could help us out, but it would cost and we're flat broke. Maybe Westerlund could help us get to Malta... ohh shit, we need cash right... we have gold! Let's sell the fucking necklace thing.. we could get that back from the Prof, right?

"There's a thought," says Liz. "We'll want to get to Malta early then, as soon as we can make the arrangements and get as much of the translation done as we need. We'll have to be careful where we sell the gold. Something like that would be recognisable."

Andy looks glum, "Yeah... Clay would have known who to go to. We ought to be able to shift those coins though..."

Spoiler:
IDEA Roll please - success = Greg thinks Andy is probably wrong the temple they are looking for would be by the sea because the location of the main temple was by the cliff edge overlooking the city. Failure = Yeah Andy's probably right.



OOC:   Greg/Liz you'll have to search your memories but you have met people who have grudges against the Verbti, who might have regional contacts who may be able to help with all sorts of illicit things.

"Hey, remember Mitar Todovic?" says Liz, excited. "He's the one who told us all about the old man and his lot. He's got an axe to grind with the Verbetoi, and he might be able to get us allies and gear, and know how to get it to Malta. Father Marakis introduced us, and he should be able to put us in contact with him again."

"Andy, I think the main temple was on that cliff, by the sea. That is probably where they are going.

And Liz, have you seen anything about Clay online. Its been a few weeks, he maybe up and moving around again. We should check in on him, maybe we can get him out, or perhaps give us a clue as to where we might be able to find help. "

As far as Liz can ascertain Clay is still in hospital although reading between the lines he may be helping with police inquiries. The story he seems to be sticking to is he was mugged. You could try and get in touch with him.

NB: Locally ie in the UK Greg has used up a lot of favours it is not clear what he'd be able to do (certainly as an NPC - happy for BenTheRat to play him again and roleplay events, but we really need a player for Greg who is the only guy who knows the relevant spells.)

Liz sends an email to Clay asking how he's doing, along with her public PGP key and instructions on how to use PGP to encrypt his emails and decrypt hers so that they can communicate without fear of interception. The police, or someone else, could easily be monitoring his emails.

OOC:   Mr Handy - Can I have a luck roll, please.  

OOC:   Is someone going to get in touch with Father Marakis at St Agata's? He is your point of contact with Mitar Todovic the former Serbian fighter

Liz has a good feeling that Clay will be able to help.

Spoiler:
I'll go to the church, along with anyone else who wants to come.

Before she gets in touch with Clay Liz goes out and gets a Burner phone as a result when the response SMS from the police arrives she simply dumps the phone.
OOC:   He's helping with investigations, what were you thinking!!!! :lol:

Liz rings ahead and arranges with Father Marakis to meet at the church that evening, Driving out to Hounslow they find the church still surrounded by scaffolding with work on repairs seeming having made little progress since she was here what seems a lifetime ago. The Old priest Father Marakis greets you at the door welcomes Liz and Andy and then guides you through the church to his own rooms at the back where Mitar Todovic sits waiting.

Father Marakis explains for Andy's benefit that Mitar is a veteran of the 1992-94 war in Eastern Bosnia. Short, balding and now running to fat Todovic does not cut a very impressive figure but its clear there is muscle beneath the fat and he has the looks of a hard man.

The priest excuses himself claiming he will go and make some tea and bring biscuits. Todovic waits for the priest to leave the room and then a sad but knowing smile crosses his face.

So now you know who you truly face eh?

"Yes, I've got a much better idea now," says Liz, lowering her head. "We're fighting outside our weight, and we need some help. We've discovered quite a bit already. The one in charge seems to be a chap named Alex Rudaj. He and his mates are going to be gathering on Malta to do something horrible in about a month's time."

Mitar as clear an expression of "so what" as if he had said it out loud.

"The god they worship, Verbti," continues Liz, "which is also known as Cthugua, seems to be the source of some of their...unusual abilities. They plan to bring it into this world, which would be...really bad. For everyone. This thing may not really be a god, just an extremely powerful alien being from another dimension. Still, I wouldn't want it coming round."

Mitar gives an exasperated sigh looks at Andy and rolls his eyes as if to say, women, eh. My grandmother like her she talk talk talk all day long but never get to the point Mittar mutters his accent quite thick then a bit more clearly "[b]Maybe you tell me what d'fuck you want to talk to me about[/b]"

Liz thinks she would like to meet Mitar's grandmother and have a good yammer with her, but she knows better than to say that. "We need your help," she says, getting to the point. "We need to get guns into Malta. Explosives, too, if possible. And we need backup to help us fight. I've discovered I'm quite the badass, but I can't defeat them all by myself. I'm not Chuck Norris."
