[IC - LA] A Trip to Pasadena (Ian, Cam)

A decade ago, a band of occult investigators battled against the summoning of an ancient and monstrous evil. They failed. Now you must piece together the puzzle and finish what they could not. The stakes are high, and so is the price to pay. Can you do it?

Spoiler:
Cam will sneak up on him, and attempt to sap him with a blackjack if that's possible. Can I spend points on Stealth?

Sure you can spend points for Stealth. First roll for that, it's your Stealth roll against the mexican's Sense Trouble

Cameron sees that Ian is in trouble. Clenching his jaw, and trying to still his breathing, he pulls his pistol, an Astra mod.400, releases the safety, and puts it in his left hand. With his right, he takes out his blackjack. As carefully and calmly as he can, he walks towards Ricardo.

Spoiler:
Here's my roll for Stealth: Stealth: 1d6 3

Cam tries to move as silently as he can, but when he's still a few meters away from Ricardo, the mexican hears him and turns around. Seeing an armed opponent, the mexican hurriedly fires his gun, but haste doesn't make for good aim, and the bullet flies away without hitting its target. Still, the gunshot resonates in the building.

Spoiler:
OOC:   Both of you can now act. Also, roll me Stability (for being involved in a gunfight).

You can act normally. Also, you pass the test and lose no stability.

Without missing a beat Cameron fires off a shot at Ricardo.

The bullet flies straight at Ricardo's heart. The man coughs up blood, then he falls to the ground, the gun clattering away on the floor. He seems to be dead, or dying.

Spoiler:
As for any general ability, you can spend points from your Firearms pool to improve your roll to hit. In this case, you hit anyway, but remember it for the future ;)

Also, I have roller the damage for you, as it can't be modified by spending points.

Cameron runs over and quickly begins to pull Ricardo out of sight.

Ian, help me! We need to search him.”

He picks up Ricardo’s gun.

Spoiler:
Thanks OL! I decided not to spend the points as he is good with firearms. If Ian is able to function, he will move the body to his previous hiding place and search the pockets before they get away.

Stability roll: Stability: 1d6 5

Ian Morin

For Ian it all happened real quickly, and when he is able to move Ricardo is already on the floor, covered in blood, and Cam is screaming for help. "Shit, shit, shit, shit..." He hurries to help his friend to drag the body of the mexican to a hidden corner. Once he's sure the corpse is out of sight, he proceeds to check the man's pockets for anything useful. We have to hurry! The driver and his two partners upstairs are probably coming to see what happened! Ian looks around, trying to find alternative ways to get out of that lobby.

Cameron hands Ricardo’s gun to Ian.

“I’ll try to bluff the driver. Wait here until I signal”.

He moves off to see if the driver is coming, his gun concealed behind his back.

OOC:   You remember seeing an emergency staircase in the back of the building, but that would probably be reachable only from the upper floors. You don't see any other exit on the ground floor, apart from the main one.  


Cam hides the gun and run towards the entrance, just in time to see the driver coming in, holding a revolver. He stops for a second, then without even speaking aims the gun at Cam and fires. The bullet catches Cam on a shoulder, pushing him backwards.

Spoiler:
OOC:   You can now act. You lose 3 Health.  


Spoiler:
Inside the man's pocket there are a wallet... and a vial of white liquid. You recognize it immediately: it's nectar.

OOC:   Roll Stability. This is not against a possible loss, but against the impulse of hiding the vial and keep it for yourself. You can spend points normally to boost the roll, but they'll be removed from your Stability pool as usual.

Cameron staggers back, grimacing in pain, but he manages to bring up his pistol and get off a shot.

Cam's bullet hits the man in the belly. He screams in pain, collapsing back onto the wall, but manages to stay up. Covering his wound with one hand, he shoots again, but he misses.

Spoiler:
OOC:   You can take another shot and try to finish him. Remember as usual that you can spend points from Firearms to boost your roll. Just to clarify, having many points in Firearms doesn't directly improve your rolls (not like CoC), it simply means you have more points to spend and improve your chances to hit.  


Ian finishes inspecting the body. He can now hear footsteps running down the stairs.

Spoiler:
You take the vial with trembling hands and hide it in a pocket. You'll tell your friends later. Surely you don't need to trouble Cam with this right now. You take a quick look at the wallet and find an ID and some cash - nothing strange catches your attention.

OOC:   You can now act normally. Keep the vial for yourself, we'll handle that later.

Cameron grits his teeth from the pain in his shoulder, trying not to black out. Using all his willpower, he points the Astra and fires another round.

The second bullet finishes the job, hitting the man straight in one eye, sending blood and brain over the wall. Soundlessly, he collapses to the floor, where he twitches for a second and then lays still.
