CH3-04 Down by the shore

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

Greg knows best how they can be used, as he's done the most research, so I'll leave the decision to him.

If Westerlund is aghast that we would just sell these for money, would he be willing to help finance our venture, in exchange for the artifacts?


OOC: Sorry, I have Enginnering week coming up, that I am running for my company. Shipping out Crit Fumble Dice, and a convention coming next weekend. This is on top of working on Devil's Swamp. So I have been super swamped. After next weekend, I'll be able to get back into things.

Westerlund doesn't have that sort of cash on hand he probably has £4000 on hand and could probably raise another 20-30K but that would take him some time. He could also broker a deal to sell the artefacts for their proper historic value but that would take a lot, lot longer.

To arm and equip you each with a pistol and long gun (of dubious provenance) plus a couple of magazines of ammo for each delivered to you on Malta is going to cost you £1000. For every extra person, you want along for the ride is going to cost you another £1000.

You could try a PERSUADE roll so see if you can get Mita to see this as an opportunity for vengeance against those who massacred his friends

Liz tries to get Mitar to see this as an opportunity for revenge, but she doesn't have much luck. She hopes the others will lay out a stronger case.

Spoiler:
Persuade roll (21% skill) to convince Mitar to help for the sake of revenge:

Andy Wade

Andy tries to build on Liz's plea to Mitar, showing pictures of the golden book and the 'coin belt' heavily implying that these are probably the tip of the iceberg and that Rudaj and his cohorts would have more of items like this.

OOC:   Do we know how many people (on Rudaj's side) are travelling to Malta?

Spoiler:
I did find that information. There are about forty people in all, fifteen of them males of fighting age.

Mita listens to both Liz and Andy's arguments "So this guy is responsible for the deaths of my comrades, and he's a big man with these Verbti and this thing he wants to do in Malta is his big goal in life? So I say fuck him, fuck them all we fuck him real bad. I call in some favours and get you credit, not vast but get you all armed. I talk to old comrades maybe they are also keen for so payment on old debts"

OOC:   Mita will make sure you each have a pistol and long gun and some ammo. He'll also arrange for 5 of his old mates to come along, they're all past their prime, but all veterans of a very nasty war. You'll have to dispose of the coin necklace but can do so with the assistance of the professor thus maximising the cash for it, which should more than cover costs.

Could we get Kevlar vests too? I'm not fond of getting shot.

Liz asks if Mitar can provide vests, he looks at her and nods saying he will see what he can find.

OOC:   Remember the chance of Liz getting a suitable (ie properly fitting vest) vest is slim as she is both female and a short arse and Mitar is not be buying any of the stuff he is going to source it from "friends and acquaintances".

Shall we move on time wise? There are about four weeks until whatever is happening in Malta is due to happen, how do you intend to use that time.

We should do as much of the translation as we can, focusing on the end.

OOC:   Here's my tuppence worth:

Someone should get used to using the 'wand', seeing what they can get the thing to do - it could be an important weapon.

We need to work out an effective way to tackle the fire thingies - in case they put in an appearance.

OOC:   Fire extinguishers seem to work effectively but the problem is they are bulky and have a limited number of 'shots' On top of which flame-resistant clothing has proved to also be effective in providing some protection.

OOC:   We can steal fire-extinguishers from hotels in Malta - so that's covered, I guess.

OOC:   Less risky might be to buy them, but yes they are common and easy enough to acquire. Once Westerlund knows you plan on going back to Malta he offers you the keys to his house. He isn't going back to Cyprus until his court case.

Spoiler:
Yes, we definitely need fire resistant clothing. Greg should probably be the one to practice with the wand, as he has the highest POW and isn't otherwise skilled at combat, plus he's fragile and may need more protection from fire. Granted, I'm fragile too, but not quite as fragile as him, plus he's the doctor so we need him healthy. Are we able to get grenades?

OOC:   As it is coming from Mitar's contacts on a charity basis, rather than being paid for its potluck.

OK with me, if Greg agrees.

I'm hoping we can do the obligatory raid a mining operation to get dynamite :o while on Malta.
