IC-Ep 3-The Rescue(Brook/Eddie/Eugene)

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.

Brook nodded. "Yeah, good idea. Let's blow them up! Well...the place, at least. I was sort of hoping a bomb would fall on the warehouse when I had the searchlight turned on it, but that warden woman turned it back up again."

"We could always pop over to Woolwich Arsenal and ask for a couple of artillery shells," Eugene chuckled. "Seriously though, if we get through this, at the very least a gang of navvies with picks and crowbars would make short work of that place!"
He stooped and thought for a second. "Maybe our first priority should be to deal with the Steadmans - or at least Madeline and her deal ol' mum. We have to get that jewel thing, or whatever it is, off them... I get the feeling that ol' Major Steadman could be worked on - I reckon he might have doubts..." He shrugged. "Or maybe that's just wishful thinking. It passes the time at least - better than trying to sell you vacuum cleaners!"

Brook nodded thoughtfully. "But how to get the gizmo from them...that's the question. Know any pick pockets?" She smiled, to lighten the mood.

Eugene chuckled. "Well I've met a few dodgy characters in my time, but most of them have either been called up into the army or are lying low!"

With the conversation petering out, Eugene made himself as comfortable as possible with cushions and kneelers and tried to get some sleep.

With Thorn currently busy, I'm happy to wait until everyone gets back to the church.

Spoiler:
I'm not sure what time the other group of characters will arrive, but you may as well both roll Sanity when you get a chance for enduring the second night of the Blitz. Sanity loss is 0/1, so you lose no Sanity if you succeed but 1 Sanity if you fail. Once you've failed a roll, you will no longer have to roll again on future nights, as you'll be used to it. However, both of you succeeded at your rolls the previous night, so you still need to roll this time.

Eddie poured himself a modest cup of tea as he listened to the conversation, a quick drink to warm himself up before the patrol. "I'm not sure if The Woolwich crew will consider the presence of a cult a sufficient reason to lend us anything. We could try passing them off as a potential German spy cell, if all else fails. Would at least get them arrested and the place searched." He started to wonder if he should take Felix along with him, given all these nightmares about.

Eugene opened his eyes as Eddie spoke.

"A German spy cell? That's not a bad idea. If you could persuade the authorities to investigate the warehouse it'd put pressure on the Steadmans at the very least - maybe force them to make a mistake. Watch out for the two women though."

He paused, shuddering as the sirens wailed.

"It would have to be a daytime raid though. We can't risk more deaths at the hand of that monster. During the night... well, could you ask your colleagues to occasionally sweep their searchlights over the warehouse? Hopefully that'd keep the creature's head down, rather than allow it to go out in the dark to kill."

"Another option is to get to them via Major Steadman. If we can get him on his own somehow - maybe when he's on duty - we could try to make him see just what a terrible thing he is involved in."

Well, whatever it was they did to your face would surely cast them in a pretty bad light.
OOC:   Roll anything to see what Eddie knows about the Steadmans? Also, is Eugene's face back to normal?

Spoiler:
Eddie only knows what others have told him about the Steadmans. London's a huge city with a large population, and he wouldn't have been in the same circles they are.

Eugene's face is not quite as bad as it was when Eddie first saw him, but it's still far from back to normal.

Eugene's hand involuntarily went up to his face, feeling the healing blisters. He had no idea what he looked like since his ordeal, but he was sure he wasn't a pretty sight.

"Um, thanks Eddie. I'm sure my face is in a bit of a state, but I don't think it'll be enough to persuade the authorities that there's a coven of witches going around summoning demons. When the air raid is over, we should find someone and report our suspicions that there's a spy-ring in the warehouse. If we can find out where Major Steadman works, we can also talk to him if he's alone."

Brook sat with her back to the wall, listening to the sirens and the conversation. "We could pin that poor girl's murder on them....that should get the police involved, shouldn't it? And it wouldn't be wrong, either. They did turn that monster bat loose on her...."

"Very true miss. Either way we need to get the authorities interested enough to raid that warehouse."

Has Eugene ever witnessed Story use his sonic screwdriver?

I don't think he's used it yet during this adventure, so I'd say no. If you saw him using it when you were catching up, you'd probably remember.

Eddie sipped his tea, when something came to his mind. "There's also one more thing I believe you should know about. On the night that girl was murdered, a madwoman had escaped from Maxell's Sanitarium. Name's Catherine Exeter, me and Archie heard about her when we delivered the German to the police. She's been locked up for attempted murder for a decade now. Given the current situation, this woman is either in danger or a danger herself.
Spoiler:
I presume Eddie will have to leave for a patrol soon, correct?
