New York Public Library
7:30pm - Wednesday 14th January, 1925

Dr. Sánchez's friend Samuel McConnell meets the investigators at the staff door of the New York Public Library, and ushers them in out of the heavy snow.

"It's a good night for reading Nemesio, but the weather is awful outside. This must be very important for you all to brave the elements."

Atauchi gazed about him as he removed his fur adorned coat. On occasion he had assisted the Professor with his research, but this was still very much his area of expertise. That being said, from what he knew of Michael Anderson, he was no slouch in the academic arena himself. No, the Quechua man was merely here in a protective role should the band of cultists make a move against their group.

OOC:   That's a critical success at the Spot Hidden, hopefully there's something to spot this time. I got closer with the Library Use than I thought I would, but alas, not close enough.

None of the investigators notice anything usual, and Atauchi is certain that they are not being tailed.

Once everyone is inside Samuel shuts the door and leads the way to the stacks.

"I can't stay much longer myself tonight Nemesio, but you know your way around the place well enough, take as long as you like. I'll let the night watchman know to let you all out when you are done. We have archives of all the New York newspapers, perhaps there's information in there about these people."

OOC:   I'll use the library use rolls that you've already made when you do your research. Didn't want to post the results immediately, as the other thread is likely to involve more interaction.

"Thank you anyway for letting us doing our research". - says Anderson already preparing himself for a long night.

Atauchi followed Samuel McConnell towards the night watchman's desk. Once there, he took a fair amount of time to confer with the guard about the museum's security measures, number and location of points of entry, and any past attempted break-ins. He wouldn't be doing his due diligence if he didn't perform this mundane task. With the possibility of renewed death cult activity, he couldn't be too cautious.

OOC:   @Raiko If you want to rp the discussion between Atauchi and the watchman, feel free to take it in that direction. I'm game for it.
