IC - Prologue -Train to Peking, 8th of July

On the lunar calendar, it is the twelfth of July, 1920; in three days' time, the good people of China will celebrate 中元節, the festival of the dead. The great festival is an ancient tradition shrouded in dark rumours and whispered tales. Now, this festival will be celebrated publicly in Peking city, open to the gazes and inquiries of foreigners. During this month, the 阴气, the aura of death, is at its strongest; it will be during this month that the dead may influence the living realm with an eldritch plot of horror and madness...

Endymion smiles warmly.

"Mine is the dusty field of academia, dear boy, you might say I'm a bit of an expert on this country's past peoples and their traditions, a great many of which persevere to this day and withstand the turmoil of the new century."

11:40PM, 8th of July
After a few more hours of chatting and general party-going, the party trickled to a stop. The band stopped playing, after they had enough for the night; the train staff started assisting the more...unfortunate ones towards their respective cabins. The refreshments were all gone, as with the food. Cadjost retired to his room accompanied by a team of men wearing suits and jackets.

OOC:   You could choose to end here by going to bed, as there precious little more that you discover at this point, or follow Cadjost...do note that however,
since it's a brightly-lit train carriage with no hiding places, with every member of that group alert and making are that they aren’t being followed...you're going to take a -20 penalty to Sneak. Anything else you want to do?

Retires to his bed.

OOC:   At 15 %, Sneak is not worth trying.
