[IC]Chapter 1 - Cold Tidings

Using the 2018 remastered edition of Masks.

March 1921, Lima, Peru: A disparate group of academics and adventurers gather to assist Augustus Larkin's expedition to locate a pyramid long forgotten by history.

Years later a friendship forged in Peru will bring this group together again - can the investigators unravel the mysteries of the Carlyle Expedition massacre before it's too late?

Upon realizing that he would be unable to apprehend the driver, Atauchi, albeit reluctantly, maintained his position as the car pulled out of the alley and onto 23rd. He committed the description of the man and vehicle to memory and continued his observation until it was out of sight. He then took to casing the alley for anything of interest that may have been left behind. As the sound of the approaching sirens reached his ears, the Quechua man immediately slipped back out onto the busy street and mingled with the pedestrians.

OOC:   As a Listen roll, the result passes by 5.

Atauchi notes the licence plate as the black tourer pulls away - NYL7.

The car turns left onto 7th Avenue and heads uptown.

Atauchi can hear the siren of an police car in the distance, getting louder.

OOC:   I'll use your roll above as a listen roll, as there's nothing to spot in the alleyway.

By the time Cynthia Rebecca makes her call to her editor,
editor the cop car is close enough for everyone to make a listen roll.

"The police are almost here," says Amy, hearing the sirens.

“You’re right,” Cynthia grimaces. “Let’s hope they’re not crooked ones. We’d better pocket this stuff we’ve found in case it gets ‘lost’ in the evidence locker.”

She surveys the scene, sighing sadly.

“At leads this exonerates Adams; Rebecca and the press will see to that.”

Nemesio Sánchez frowns 'I'm off, the desk could identify me' I'm taking the fire ladder I'm not up for questioning'
He promptly goes over to the balcony looking for the fire escape.

Marcus raises an eyebrow as Nemesio comes out. "Where are you going, Doc? I don't think the cops would be too happy if you took off."

“Think about it Professor, a foreigner, running from the murder scene; they’d have the perfect excuse to hunt you down and make you the number one subject! You’ll be identified by the receptionist in any case. Better stay here and we can all vouch for each other.”

Rebecca makes her way back into the room.

"Well the whole city is going to know what happened before the end of today, did I miss anything while I was downstairs?".

“We found a few clues we don’t really want the cops to know we got, but that’s about it. We’ll show you when it’s safe. In the meantime, can you get a photographer up here? A picture paints a thousand words and all that jazz.”

OOC, Can i assume that the editor said one would be on his way now - or do I need go back to the lobby to make another call?

Cynthia nods.

“Peachy. Let’s hope the cops don’t stop him on the way. I wonder if anyone else has a camera around here? Y’know, just in case.”
