[IC - LA] The UCLA (Clarence, Holly, and Chris.)

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?

It's a quick trip to the secretary office inside the Mathematics department building, but it doesn't seem like it will be easy to access to the records you're looking for. Apparently, these documents were originally stored in the old University building, before the move to the new campus. During the move, most of these documents were just gathered in unlabeled cardboard boxes, and never properly reorganized. You get the feeling no one is willing to go investigate that mess and find them for you.

OOC:   Here we go. Sorry for the wait, but I'm pacing this topic with the other one.

So, 1-point spend in any ability you can use to apply pressure and force the secretary to dig up the old stuff for you.

Spoiler:
My skills are more one softer side. Bureaucracy would have done it, but I've spent that already. I'll spend Bargain if I can. Maybe I can offer to do some of her work while she helps us. Otherwise, Christopher has Bureaucracy and Clarence has Intimidation.

Christopher will use his Bureaucracy spend to get hold of the information.

You pressure the secretary, threatening to go over her head, and she finally accepts to help you. Digging up the old documents take a couple of hour, but she manages to find everything. Job's grades were good in the beginning, but got worse over time. He failed a few exams, but repeated them until he managed to pass them. As Tichener said, he surely didn't lack dedication. In fact, he seemed to be following a large number of courses, perhaps even too many, up to the first half of 1924. He then disappears completely from the records. Anyway, judging from what you can see, it doesn't look like he was a brilliant student.

Holly reviews his transcript, looking to see what electives he had taken, particularly in history or archaeology, in the hopes that there's some connection to Dr. Ayers.

From what you can see in the documents, Job only followed Mathematics and Physics courses.

"There's nothing in here that suggests any connection to Ayers," says Holly.

Christopher shrugs, "That's as maybe.. it's possible they met through an acquaintance it's plausible that Job was friends with a student that was in one of Ayers' classes.. or simply bumped into Ayers on campus ... that's not something we are going to be able to prove either way of course. I don't think we are going to find anything more here and time' is moving on... and so should we. We only have a limited amount of time until Pizner makes bail or he gets word back to Walker or Trammel. I vote we go to our rendezvous* point and wait for Ian and Cameron."

Spoiler:
did we make/agree a rendezvous place/time?

OOC:   Well, you can head back to the hotel, as it's late afternoon anyway. Since the others are closing up in their thread as well, I'm going to open the new IC thread shortly.

"I agree, I think we're done here," says Holly. "Let's go to the hotel and meet up with the others."

Spoiler:
We did change hotels, right? Pizner knew where we were staying before.

OOC:   You already had booked rooms in two different hotels, and abandoned the one discovered by Pizner. You can book rooms in yet another hotel if you want.

Spoiler:
We'll meet at the hotel Pizner doesn't know about yet, then. We can always book a new one later.
