IC-Ep 1-All Roads Lead to Rome(Story/Elizabeth/Lucius/Brook)

Story and his companions arrive in Rome in 44 BC, the day before the Ides of March. They encounter a very unusual soothsayer who delivers a warning to Julius Caesar and soon find themselves embroiled in intrigue.

As Story turns towards Brook he says, "Not so much a party... more like ancient Rome." Looking around at his companions, "Shall we venture forth and have a look?" He places his hand on the door lever.

"Yes please!" says Elizabeth eagerly. "I've always wanted to see ancient Rome." She skips over to the door, ready to head out.

With a smile and a nod of his head Story pulls the lever to open the door.

Spoiler:
You've all been to ancient Rome before, in the unwritten "zeroth" adventure where Lucius joined the TARDIS crew.

All of you, please roll Idea before you leave the TARDIS.

Something occurred to Brook.

Spoiler:
The instructions for using the board's dice roller are here (the link is in the Character Creation thread's first post as well).

Spoiler:
Brook suddenly realized that her outfit belonged in the 20th or 21st century, and it would draw a lot of attention in ancient Rome. The same went for all of their current clothing.

Looking down at his clothing Story chuckles to himself and says, "Quite right Brook, quite right. We should still have our attire from the last time we were here."

"Oops!" says Elizabeth, grinning. "Yes, well spotted Brook. Let's go and see what we've got."

Brook smiles. "I like dressing up." She heads for the wardrobe with the others to pick out something suitable.

Before heading to the wardrobe Story returns the lever to its original spot in order to seal the doors to the outside shut once more.

Story and his companions went to the TARDIS wardrobe room, which featured clothing from many different cultures and eras. It wasn't terribly well organized, but it was very diverse. There were a number of outfits suitable for ancient Rome, and Lucius was easily able to identify what Romans in his day typically wore. There were of course the obligatory togas, the off-the-shoulder garments worn by both men and women. There were several of them in different colors. There were a few gallia, or overcloaks, of different colors as well. The weather had felt mild during the brief moments when the door had been open, so they probably weren't necessary. There was also a brown cucullus, a hooded cloak made of wool that belonged to Lucius. He had sometimes used it in the course of his job when it was necessary to be stealthy and to hide his identity. For footwear, there were pairs of sandals, again with a choice of colors. In addition, there were a few shawls of different colors.

"Ah a toga for me I think!" says Elizabeth, reaching out for one in a nice colour. She also finds a shawl to wrap around her shoulders, just in case, and a pair of sandals in the right size. Having gathered her goodies she scurries off to change in private.

Lucius puts on a toga and sandals, and also grabs his cloak, just in case. "The streets of Rome can be dangerous, we should stick close."

Once everyone had changed into Roman garb, the group left the TARDIS. The four time travelers found themselves in a blind alley that came to a dead end here. The only way out was into the marketplace they had seen on the scanner. Graffiti marked some of the walls here, which they knew from their previous journey to ancient Rome was ever present.

Spoiler:
You may continue to interact here. Once you enter the marketplace, you'll be joining the other PCs.
