  1. What's new in this game
  2. William adopts his most sombre expression as he says, "The poor man appears to have been carrying vials of a peculiar liquid. And, whilst we will certainly have to have this substance analyzed at our laboratory, the most likely explanation for his actions would be a strong adverse reaction to a narcotic. I have it on good authority that the effects of laudinum on a small percentage of unfortunates can be likened to turning Mr Stevenson's Dr Jekyll into a certifiable Mr Hyde." "Sheriff, we don't want to interfere in your jurisdiction any more than we already have. I think it best if you have the body transferred to Mr Algreto, along with all effects - as they are now all evidence." "I'm sure we can leave this in your capable hands whilst we pursue the true nature and origin of potion. "
  3. Adam said, "The good news is we found one of the guys involved in the murders. He was a little sloppy last time. One guess whose hotel room was just a couple of feet away from the last victim. The bad news is he resisted arrest a little too much."
  4. Within a short spell, Deacon, the Sheriff makes his way to the scene. Standing there, holding his sweat stained hat in one hand, scratching his sweaty scalp with the other. "So eh...what happened here?" He asked in a concerned tone. Obviously sure he won't like the answer, and knowing he can't do anything about it.
  5. The Ophidian takes the letter and puts it into his jacket pocket amidst a great many slithering things. In response to William and Adam's inquiries he answers only, "Indeed."
  6. William sighs, but nods. "Mr Blakemore, if you wouldn't mind, your coat pocket is probably the last place anyone would look for this letter. Other than that, I believe we can remain more or less true to what actually happened whilst subtly shifting emphasis and consequent blame toward... the unfortunate gentleman." "Shall we?"
  7. The Ophidian shakes his head no. "I have not heard of thiss Gentek. Piper is however quite wealthy and keen to invest in any projects that capture his interesst."
  8. Assuming everyone goes with what Adam said, we'll keep the paper and get the cops. We can tell them we think this was the killer's partner.
  9. Thinking as he worked, Adam says, "OK, we've probably been seen, and we've got a fresh corpse here. I think there's only one way to handle it... but you're probably not going to like it. When you have a mess of this nature, what you want to do is to blame the dead guy."" Adam takes a deep breath, ""We knew he's involved, we tried to arrest him, he ran, he resisted arrest, and while he was pulling out his stuff we killed him. This even has the advantage of being true."
  10. Well, we've got 2 options - we can go back to Algreto, cap in hand, or we can just deal with it. William's manipulation skills are somewhat fearsome, but I suspect we've been seen - so the options for that route are somewhat limited.
  11. I think we the players have been a little stunned (well done that). A good question. I don't think we have a license to kill... certainly not "innocent" people. Or in this day and age, maybe we do? Fleeing the scene of a crime, person in league with the murderer... I'm open to suggestions.
  12. I still think it was a great scene. FYI the injection, as you will come to learn was actually a curative (anti-venom) He was poisoned by a snake and happens to be a resourceful geneticist. The fact that you feel spooked into action as in a Cathulu game makes me happy. That is the idea.
  13. Agreed. I don't think the PCs actions were unwarranted... just a bit paranoid. The sort of paranoid you get from being a PC in Call of Cthulhu. ::tongue But then again, from the vic's perspective - he sees people in his room, realizes they've seen him, figures that it's 'Piper', and runs for it. If anything, even more reasonable. I was in two minds as to what William would do as he's the least experienced of the characters by a long way. I finally decided on Shoot First because it's what the people who actually know what they're doing are doing and it seemed to fit. But ya win some, ya lose some. ::tongue
  14. William sighs. "Well, we have our lead. We'd best contact our benefactor, although I doubt he will be terribly impressed with our... progress." He turns to Adam, "Mr Trooper, as you have already been exposed, would you mind gathering up the evidence? I suspect it would be worth a more thorough analysis.... Especially as our unfortunate victim doesn't seem to have any other weapons. And Mr Blakemore, I don't suppose you might know where we would find this Gentek lab, by any chance?"
  15. Adam adds, almost as an after thought, "That means this stuff on me is probably a knock out drug and not a poison... well... " (Addressing the corpse) "My apologies Thomas." *On the other hand better you than me.*
  16. Ski is right, this one was mostly my bad. But with the information I actually had IMHO tactically it was the right move. We're dealing with something that could and would kick our collective asses, *or* just run away from us. After we went down that Jeckle/Hide line of thought and then saw what he was up to (i.e. injecting himself) I made the choice that we needed to act now rather than wait for perfect information.
  17. The Ophidian, broodingly, chimes in. "Cheng-men Piper. Chinese millionaire and investment banker. Has a rather familiar taste for rare and arcane artifacts. We have...run afoul of each other before..."
  18. He could have just stopped when we yelled halt. Then again he probably thought we were agents of Piper coming after him. It was a misunderstanding really...we pursued he attacked and we had to defend ourselves. That said Hadrian went for a non lethal strike. It was our fearless Highlander who had to go all ginsu... ::huh
