IC-Ep 2-Breaking and Entering?(Everyone else)

London, 1940: The world is engulfed in the flames of war, and now the war has come to Great Britain's capital. German bombers rain death and destruction upon the blacked-out city, but what other terrors lurk unseen in the darkness? The Time Lord, his companions, and a handful of London's inhabitants doing their bit may be the only ones who can avert disaster.

This is Classic Doctor Who meets Call of Cthulhu, the fifth of a series of connected adventures set in different eras and locations that includes The Terror Out of Time, The Ninth Planet, The Shadow Over Dunwich, and The Brotherhood of Death.

Phyllis watches Benjamin with some alarm, "Oh, I thought we were staying here in Queensway, just sheltering. Although, it might be nice to head home to Bethnal Green. Except that there's a bit of a walk at the other end. Oh dear, another night out." She says mournfully.

Spoiler:
While Bethnal Green Station has been constructed and is used as an air raid shelter (in fact, many people died during a panicked stampede there in 1943), the railway line has not been completed as of yet. It was suspended due to the war, and it will only be completed after the war is over. The eastern terminus is currently Liverpool Street Station, so it's somewhat of a long walk, especially if there's an air raid going on at the time.

Charles looked around at the platform. "I suggest we move along the platform, as close to the back of the trains as possible, it's usually less crowded there, although in this situation I don't rightly know if it'll be the same..".

Phyllis uses her formidable handbag and the odd elbow to good effect. A final pointed look removed a couple of younger men from four seats and she sits down allowing Maggie and Doris to take a pew also. "Would you like a seat, Mr?" She says to Story, who did seem to be the oldest there.

Elizabeth grins at Phyllis's question. "Maybe that's a good idea Story? I'll stay standing nearby, whatever." She looks around, trying to absorb as much detail as possible. She knew about the underground bomb shelters during her childhood, but obviously never experienced them herself. Looking back at the group she pauses, before saying "I think we should stay here for now. We should be safe. Perhaps we could take this opportunity to compare notes about what is going on and what we've found out? And then work out what to do next?"

Story smiles at Phyllis and nods in agreement with Elizabeth, "You know, I think I might." As he sits down he says, "Being cramped up under that shelter's cot was a most unpleasant way to spend the evening."

Spoiler:
Those of you who have not previously failed a Sanity roll the previous night for enduring the Blitz must make another Sanity roll for tonight, with a Sanity loss of 0/1. I believe the people who need to roll are Story, Elizabeth, Phyllis, and Anna. Please feel free to continue discussing and planning among yourselves.

"Well, Anna, Charles and I didn't find much in the house, we searched for a good while to no avail"

He said as he sat down near the others, starting to plan out their next movements, with a grin on his face.

"Indeed we did not" added Charles "We just found a letter to Captain Steadman from a Captain Dominic Travers, about a small "coffin-like object", which contained a stone, or gem of some sort, and a ledger entry indicating that Captain Steadman had purchased this from Captain Travers for £1000, back on Halloween 1938" repeating his earlier summation of what was discovered during the burglary. "Sadly the air raid warden came before we had a chance to explore the top floor of the house, so who knows what we would have found otherwise..."

Phyllis looks from one man to the other thinking that 'not much' was actually quite a lot and that the 'burglars' are really not trustworthy.

"That really doesn't have any connection to a deranged old woman or a savage beast roaming the streets of London though, does it?" And that less time spent burglering and more time checking the premises might have been more productive.

"Doris says that Catherine Exeter has been staying with the Steadmans when she ought to be constrained at the asylum. The least we can do is help the authorities get her back into custody."
