IC-Ep 1-Rain of Death(Everyone)

Story, Elizabeth, and Brook arrive in London in September 1940, in the middle of an air raid. They discover the body of a woman who has apparently been killed by something unnatural. They meet air raid warden Eddie Lawlor, who guides them to an air raid shelter where several others have taken refuge. A German airman also arrives, claiming that his bomber was downed by a monster.

"And count me in too," says Elizabeth to her friends. "I'm not staying here without you, air raid and monsters or not." She smiles grimly, little relishing what they might face outside, but determined to be there if need be.

Rufus gives up the handgun to Archie. He'd hunted some with rifles in his youth but he had no experience with handguns. "Well Professor Story, it looks like we're all going to find out the truth here". Rufus heads out the door.

Story nods and says, "Very well." He looks at his companions and as he begins to head towards the door he says to them, "Stay close."

Elizabeth nods in response to Story's comment, and follows him.

Archie takes the Luger from Rufus and tucks it in the inside pocket of his jacket. "Thanks old boy."

He looks slightly askance at the number of people planning on heading upstairs. "Ah, not everybody need risk their necks up there. Feel free to stay here." Worth a try.

Turning to the German officer, he adds (enunciating carefully), "You are our prisoner, old son, but you are safe and we will treat you well. Please be on your best behaviour though."

Spoiler:
Does Archie know what rank the German is? Can he at least count the number of stripes or pips?

Eddie makes the sign of the Cross, muttering to Felix, "Come on little fella. No rest for the wicked."

He was planning on going back out on his own, but safety in numbers..

OOC:   Is Eddie unwilling to guard the prisoner then? Is anyone going to guard the prisoner?

Spoiler:
OOC:   Whoops! Not unwilling,just missed that bit.  

Eddie gently, but firmly, takes the German by the arm. "You're coming with us, where I can keep my eye on you. What's yer name by the way?"

Eddie plans to get him to the nearest police station as soon as possible, but wants to find out more about the situation first.

Spoiler:
OOC:   Where is the nearest station? Presumably Eddie knows where it is.

"Oh, come now, I bet ye'll be missing me ar-- bottom -- the moment I walk out that door." Seamus comically exaggerates a bow to Phyllis and winks.

OOC:   Would Seamus know where the nearest station is?
With his underworld background he may know to avoid it if he hasn't been brought there a couple times.

OOC:   Thanks, Mr Ginge! Problem solved.  


Archie nods appreciatively at Eddie's managing the prisoner.

"Danke," said the German prisoner, giving Archie a weak smile. "I am Leutnant Friedrich Kurtz," he said, displaying his dog tags which had his name, serial number, blood type, and other sundry information. Archie also recognized the insignia that confirmed his rank. "I have always liked the English. I went to school in England, years ago. I never wished to fight your people. We should have been allies together against the Bolsheviks."

Phyllis remained behind in the shelter with Giles Curry, Maggie Duncan, and Laura. Everyone else went back above.

Spoiler:
Phyllis is moving to the thread linked below:
