Zg Session 40

It's the morning of Winter 16. You've arrived in Vendricce early thanks to demonic intervention and are currently resting up in the home of one of the contacts you established while planning for the trip.
Ottavia has been questioned and informed you that after the train arrives at the station at 5:42 this evening, it will disconnect most of the cars and move to a nearby private train depot with Luc, Bree, and Verzubak still on board. There, Luc will be meeting with his sister, Lya, and some of members of the Obscurati. The train should pull up sometime before 6:30, when the meeting is scheduled to start.
Phyllis receives a //sending shortly after 8AM.// "From Delft: Time for a status check. Have you indentified any possible Ob agents? What's your current plan?" The voice isn't Delft's but from one of the ritual mages. You can reply with up to 25 words. You know there'll be probably another 2 //sendings afterwards from your briefing.
Jack‘ pays one of the contacts to deliver coffee and crepes, distributing them to the party that morning.
[OOC] Phyllis: is this standard procedure or can I send my reply to Delft with my own sending JUST TO MAKE SURE I’m not sending info to some other Ob agent
Aleith|DM: //you were briefed this would happen

Jack: "Do we give him a list of names as a heads-up or just surprise him when they show up in irons?"
Phyllis: "Ottavia, in our custody. Brianne Kaldeckis, at large. Verzubak Tantalovich, at large. Olivert Boone, deceased. Luc Jierre, potential recruit. In Vendricce to infiltrate meeting."
Phyllis shrugs at Jack. There's his answer.
Jack‘ nods.
Aleith|DM: After about 15 minutes you get another //sending:// "Bring in who you can, kill if necessary. Any information on what the meeting is about?"
Jeremy` holds back the urge to shout ’giant magic balls'.
Phyllis: "Luc Jierre to demonstrate invention that transports people between planes. Lantern, talk of scaling up to 'lighthouse size.' Nem was 'fun,' by the way."
Aleith|DM: A third //sending:// "Capture Luc, recover lantern if possible for interrogation. Any information from meeting, who he meets bonus. Will contact on 20th if no contact since."
Phyllis glances at Ernst. He's got it, right?
Jack: "(Assuming the Roscommon makes it to port, we should have an easy enough exit.)"
Ernst: "This isn't his original lantern for what it's worth."
Ernst: "We can likely still derive some things from this, but this lamp is as broken as they come."
Phyllis still replies, even though no more are probably coming, given her briefing. "Obtained a broken lantern, though likely not original. Can reverse-engineer. Can arrange for teleportation delivery?"
Aleith|DM: There wasn't another //sending budgeted, no. You can probably bring it back on the ship in the worst-case.
Phyllis can also prepare her own and front the charge from her expenses. To Delft, this time:// "Plenty of ritual materials still in stock. I'll cover expenditures. Again, can arrange lantern for teleportation delivery?"
Aleith|DM: In response you receive, this time from Delft himself, "Harder to think of these in response. Could bring on Roscommon. Can have men waiting at Battalion's circle. Schedule 12:45 your time.
Aleith|DM: Which gives you a few hours to get ready anything you want to send over, while giving you a several hours before the train arrives.
Aleith|DM: Or anyone.
Phyllis relays this information!
Jack: "I'm ready to scrap. I just hope the meeting place isn't too far off from where Luc's starting out the night."
Phyllis: "Someone could escort Ottavia along with the lantern."
Phyllis: "That leaves us one down for the night, though."
Jeremy: "Did whatsherface not know the meeting point in advance? Being able to set up a nest before hand would be kinda nice, although I guess running in swinging is fine too."
Aleith|DM: Ottavia only knows about the initial meeting spot at the train depot.
Aleith|DM: The train depot's south of the main rail depot, just over a hill.
Ernst: "Hrm. I should probably come with. If nothing else there's a possibility we may need to make a getaway at some point and given that it's a train depot…"
Phyllis sends off Ottavia and the lantern, at least!
Aleith|DM: Alright. The //Roscommon seems to have made good time and pulls in to the harbour around 5PM in case you need anything from it.
Aleith|DM: //When are you heading out?

[OOC] Jeremy: Asap! Grab something to eat on the way, then start the stake out so we don't miss 'em.
Jack‘ is gonna quantum-deliver Ottavia to the Roscommon and then sneak over to the train depot as soon as that’s available- he can make a stealthy approach.
[OOC] Phyllis: I kinda want to prepare with Hunter's Blessing to help track Luc better and … maybe Silence to give us a better hiding spot?
[OOC] Phyllis: so enough time to allow for those
[OOC] Jack: other than that I imagine it's just a really long stakeout yeah
Aleith|DM: Alright, you can target Luc Jierre with //Hunter's Blessing.
Aleith|DM: //The train depot appears to be empty when you arrive (and is on the table).

Aleith|DM: Feel free to work out where you're setting up.
[OOC] Jack: does the train roll in from west or east
Ernst ends up just camping out by Gerald for the time being. He seems to know where the best place to be with a gun is.
Aleith|DM: From the west. The east leads towards the edge of the town.
Aleith|DM: Towards a bridge that appears to still be under construction across the bay to the Elfaivar.
Jeremy‘ gunna climb up on top of one of the nearby buildings and camp out. Brought along room tools and wood boards so it might look like they’re fixing something up there to a casual observe. Well, procrastinating working on something. Bunch of good for nothings.
Aleith|DM: Alright. Make a group Stealth check.
[OOC] Jack: okay -now- I wish zane were here
Aleith|DM: I know, right?

Jeremy` stares at Ernst.
Ernst: "Oh. Should I be laying prone or something?"
Jeremy: "We’re gunna be here a while. Put… put the gun away. You don't stake out when your gun out."
[OOC] Jeremy: with^
Aleith|DM: The train pulls up at 6:15, with only the engine, the fuel car, and the last two cars attached.
Jack‘ in the bush with the other two. "One time in the woods, I had a bit of- (oh, wait, here they come.)"
Aleith|DM: The train sits quiet, cooling down for several minutes.
Aleith|DM: At 6:30, the sun starts to set, and a tiefling in a lavish dress-Lya Jierre-steps out of the train depot’s building. When did she get in there…? She calls out for Luc to come out.
Aleith|DM: Luc and Bree disembark from the first-class car, and Lya gives her brother a boisterous hug.
Luc: "L-Lya. Good to s-see you. I thought t-there would be a group…?"
Lya gives a short laugh. "They're already here," she says, pulling a small vial from her bag.
Lya: "Were you followed?"
Phyllis glances over at Jack. Possibly for a signal.
Bree shakes her head. "We had some problem with some possible Risuri agents but Ottavia seems to have shaken them off for us post-mortem."
Luc sighs sadly.
Lya: "That's simply tragic." She pats her brother on the shoulder. She hands Luc the vial. "Light this in your lantern and we'll head inside.
Phyllis nudges Jack. The vial - !
Jack: "(That's a pretty choic meeting location."
Aleith|DM: The lantern begins to glow with blue light, and their surroundings peel away, revealing another train depot, this one gloriously illuminated by candles and chandeliers within while somehow much more deeply dark outside.
Jeremy‘ glances down at the others. Make a trigger pulling motion with his finger, unsure.
Ernst glances at Gerald. "(Based on what they’re saying… I'd say they're going to bring the others on to our plane.)"
Jeremy: "(You think? It'd make more sense to hide out and have the meeting over there…)"
Aleith|DM: Several guards appear, guarding each of the entrances, muskets in hand.
Ernst: "(This area is going to occupy both planes at once if I'm not mistaken. So if either of us run out of range we won't be able to see the other?)"
Aleith|DM: They head inside, past the guards.
Jeremy: "(I duno how this shit works man, I just shoot people.)"
Phyllis: "(I think this is your call, o shrouded one.)"
Jack: "(Well,)"
Jack: "(I'm gonna sneak around to see if I can listen in a bit,)"
Jack: "(If they notice me, swarm 'em.)"
Ananth gives Jack a thumbs-up, ready to charge in.
Aleith|DM: Make a Stealth check, then.
Jack‘ rolled 1d20+16 and got 5 ( Total: 21 )
Aleith|DM: They don’t notice you.
Aleith|DM: There's a window on the unguarded side you could probably listen at in the middle.
Jack‘ presses against a wall, edging under a window.
Aleith|DM: Lya seems to be introducing Luc to some of the other guests here. Lestor Guillory, a Risuri engineer. Dustin Huff, a Danoran astronomer. Emily and Anna Davis, the twins that Ottavia mentioned, who act as political liaisons to the government of Crisillyir who help with the Obscurati’s finances.
Lya: "Some things with the Obscurati will have to stay secret for now, but your invention, when scaled up and reproduced as lighthouses and clocktowers, will help us change the world."
Luc: "H-how would we be ch-changing things?"
Lya: "I was uncertain about things at first, too, but when we get to the palace, Nicodemus will have a chance to explain in more detail."
Lya: "I assure you, we're doing this to make things better, and we're aided by the wisdom of some of the wisest people in the past five centuries."
Aleith|DM: The man she points to, Nicodemus, speaks up then. "Now now, Lya, we shouldn't say too much in mixed company."
Nicodemus: "Congratulations on making it this far, Luc. Your intellect and bravery have carried you far from home while being spied on by hostiles."
Nicodemus: "I'm sorry, but there's still some logistical issues to sort out before proper pleasantries can begin."
Nicodemus pulls out three amulets made with rusted metal and hands them to Lya, Luc, and Bree. "Put those one, then feel free to mingle. I'll just need to check on some last-minute security first."
Aleith|DM: The other members of the conspiracy come up and begin gushing to Luc, while Nicodemus heads outside.
Jack‘ gestures to the bushes and roof. Now’s good.
Nicodemus lights up a cigarette and tells the guards to keep watch. They salute, and Nicodemus begins to scan the dusk.

Aleith|DM: There's a barricade across the tracks near the start of the bridge.
Ernst groans. "Not this again."
Jeremy: "Pretty sure this one is real!"
Ernst: "Given there's an unfinished bridge ahead of us? Yeah, I think so."
Ernst hits the brakes.
Aleith|DM: A few workers stand in front of it as the train approaches, waving their hands and trying to warn you away.
Aleith|DM: The train stops barely in front of the barricade.
Aleith|DM: Cavalry's probably not far.
[OOC] Garrett: I thought they were discouraged :(
Aleith|DM: Running for the harbour, you make your boat and they cast off immediately.
Ernst makes his way over to Chandra and sends two healing infusions his way. "That's all I got. I need you to carry Garrett we have to get to the boat on foot."
[OOC] Ernst: +48
Phyllis probably conjured up a Tenser's Floating Disc to help carry Garrett
Aleith|DM: The Roscommon barely makes it out of the harbour as a couple of frigates start heading for the mouth the block it.
Garrett‘ gives a thumbs up from the disc or burly Eldarin arms.
Jeremy: "Zane! You’re never going to believe what you missed…!"
Ananth: Please. That's the paladin's job.
Aleith|DM: After a tense couple of days, you figure you're in the clear, and after 8 days at sea you make it back to Flint.
Ernst will actually take the time to look at Garrett once he's not operating a train or running to a boat though. He has a lot of time on the boat.
Garrett‘ , true to his word, is a right miserable bastard.
Aleith|DM: It’s not really a clean cut.
Aleith|DM: jagged edges and cut straight through the shin
[OOC] Ernst: Heal check?
Aleith|DM: No, going to need a ritual. Delft says there's something they can use once you get back to Flint.
Garrett: "Fuck me am I glad we took the faster boat."
Ernst knows Remove Affliction?
Aleith|DM: His foot. Got lopped of.
[OOC] Ernst: What ritual do you even need for that stuff anyways
Garrett: "The affliction is 'my goddamn foot is unattached'"
Phyllis also probably has time to give Delft a few Sendings. Like so: "Altercation at rendesvouz point. Luc, Bree, Verzubak still at large. Escaped via Bleak Gate. Lya Jierre Obscurati. Obtained functional lantern."
Aleith|DM: Alright.
Garrett: "Oh my god I'm on a ship though, I'm gonna fukken mindmeld with it through the nerrrrrrves."
Garrett: "Does that count as having a peg leg,"
Ernst chuckles.
Garrett: "Because the entire ship is alive and shit?"
Aleith|DM: Once you get back to Flint, and Garrett's foot is reattached, Delft debriefs you.
Delft: "Welcome back to Risuri soil. I hear you had some success, and no so much in other areas, but at least all of you are in one piece. Now, anyway."
Phyllis: "Uhm."
Phyllis: "Poor phrasing, sir."
Ernst: "We have a broken and fully functional lantern to do tests on. Luc would have been nice, but with all his work present we should be able to figure out everything he knew in time."
Jeremy: "Delft."
Delft: "It was intentional."
Jeremy: "Good joke."
Jeremy‘ appreciated it.
Ananth sighs.
Phyllis: "Ass."
Delft nods.
Garrett: "Look at it this way, there’s now more Garrett in the world than there was before. Do we still have that foot?"
Garrett: "Then there'd be like, one-point-zero-one Garretts."
Jeremy: "So hey we should."
Garrett: "And hey the HQ paid for the ritual, so I mean… the only thing to do now is get an even tan on it."
Jeremy: "Probably do something about the new queen being a fucking lunatic terrorist, huh?"
Garrett: "That's kind of a huge problem, yeah."
Delft: "She's not queen yet. They're not even technically engaged."
Ananth: "Someone… ought to break the bad news to the king, yes."
Garrett: "She might'a seen his dick though, that's pretty bad."
Ernst: "We going to lay low until the big event then, Delft?"
Jeremy: "I duno the technical word for that."
Garrett: "Dating."
Delft: "Okay, for the record, we're going to run through some questions."
Delft: "Then I'll tell you our next move."
Jeremy: "Okay."
He gets out a quill and parchment. "Who was Caius Bergeron supposed to meet in Vendricce?"
Garrett: "Luc, sort of- they would have been on the same train. But also, Lya, Ottavia, and this new guy, Nicodemus."
Garrett: "Which- there's something special with that guy."
Phyllis glances over at Jack and Ernst.
Garrett: "Tons of other names were there too."
Garrett: "Tons of other names were there too."
[OOC] Garrett: oops
Delft: "And who was working with them on the train?"
Garrett‘ exhales slowly. "Damn near everyone."
Phyllis: "Ottavia and the others I mentioned in our Sending exchanges."
Garrett: "Bree, Boone, the dwarf gambler guy- Verzubak."
Ananth: "Practically a who’s-who of mid-rank Obscurati. They've got inroads in Crisillyir, at the very least."
Delft: "When did they each board the train?"
Garrett: "The Davis twins. Emily and Anna. Literal Obscurati liasons to the Crisillyir government to help with Obs finances."
Garrett: "(Sorry, later.)"
Gerald: "Luc and company were on it from the start of the line."
Phyllis: "Are you sure?"
Garrett‘ shakes his head. "Luc and Ottavia joined at Cherage."
Delft: "Do you know what they did each night when the train stopped?"
Phyllis: "Oh. Forgot to mention one more that was helping them. Boone, now deceased."
Garrett: "Verzuback… joined in Keskay, a small hub city."
Garrett: "Yeah, Boone, he showed up then too."
Garrett: "I know what Boone was up to- he was killing people each night and absorbing them into his gun."
Garrett: "He’s no longer doing that, at least."
Delft raises an eyebrow but marks that down.
Garrett: "That one was for free."
Delft: "Did he get caught by you or the police?"
Gerald: "Luc did a demo of his lantern at one point which I watched, but otherwise they were basically just hanging out."
Garrett: "I beat up punks like that on my days off from kicking ass."
Delft: "Did you notice any patterns, codes, or other identifying traits?"
Garrett: "Foot joke, sort of."
Garrett: "Anyway it was me and then turned over to the authorities who didn't question it too much."
Phyllis: "Verzuback, most likely gambling. I spent a good amount of time with him. Bree, mostly drinking alone. Trends, but not constant monitoring."
Garrett: "There was also that crazy witch Elanor, but that's a different story."
Delft: "What do we know of the conspiracy's goals? Do we know how they will accomplish them?"
Phyllis: "Platinum coins marked with near-microscopic runes. Garrett probably knows more since he saw that vision. Medals covered in rusted brass."
Gerald: "Oh yeah we uh."
Gerald: "May have overthrown a government out there but eh."
Garrett: "The Obscurati talks a lot of shit about how they're going to cause a revolution or reform something and shelter the weak,"
Gerald: "They said they were trying to save the world, but absolutely refused to elaborate at ny point."
Ernst: "If we ever wished to enter an Obscurati compound we'd likely need the amulets they're using."
Garrett: "But it just seems like their plan is to project these lantern bubbles over huge amounts of area and then just kill people."
Delft: "Do you have any clues who in Risur might be allied with them? What about allies in other countries?"
Phyllis: "Ottavia's phrasing was that they'd 'illuminate' the weak. She's spoken the most about their goals and we have her in captivity."
Ananth: "Or do something that'll have the casual side-effect of killing anyone unprotected."
Garrett: "Oh yeah, absolutely."
Garrett: "There's a Risurian engineer- Lestor Guillory. Let's shortlist him on 'arrest his ass to a blacksite' because he's Obscurati."
Garrett: "Danoran astronomer Dustin Huff."
Delft: "Alright. We'll look into his associates as well."
Garrett: "The aformentioned Davis twins."
Delft: "Did you find out anything else about this 'Nicodemus' character?"
Garrett: "…he a'int right."
Phyllis: "How much do you want to delve into supernatural explanations?"
Garrett: "He seems to be a higher up at least, and his spirit is… weird."
Delft: "Anything you have proof for, Miss Lenz, or just wild speculation?"
Garrett: "He got knocked out in the scuffle, not dead, but his spirit was already sort of wandering away from his body."
Delft frowns. "You're right. That is weird."
Phyllis: "I can only relay what Garrett witnessed."
Ernst: "I was under the impression that Nicodemus held an important leadership position. I'm not sure if he's at the top, but he's definitely higher than what we've seen?" He shrugs.
Delft: "Alright. Whom do we tell, and where do we go from here?"
Phyllis: "Are you interested in the 'wild speculation' part, at least?"
Delft: "Like what?"
Phyllis: "He's likely responsible for The Great Malice."
Phyllis: "… But that's just speculation, again."
Ananth: "So we -are- on the same page."
Phyllis: "Nothing quite actionable about that yet."
Ananth smiles, -very- thinly.
Delft: "That sounds terribly unlikely but I'll put it in your 'I-told-you-so' jar."
Phyllis: "Good, it was getting empty."
Phyllis: "Anyway."
Garrett‘ turns to the group and does some weird shit with his hands, palms down, hooking his fingers, and then he leans forward like he’s hanging, then sort of… gives them a quizzical look?
Gerald: "My vote is letting the King know and if he doesn't look shocked then doing something I probably shouldn't say inside an station."
Delft: "So. I'll talk to the King about this. Warn him about his would-be fianceé."
Delft: "The politicians are already protesting about how much money was spent, so we're not going back to Vendricce for the moment."
Gerald‘ stares blankly at Garrett, not catching on.
Ernst: "How much did this operation cost us, anyways?"
Ananth: "Let’s try to keep our prisoner safe this time."
Delft: "You're probably gonna want to lay low for a while in case the Ob decides to retaliate. Lya recognized you, at least, so they know who you are."
Delft: "I'm going to say 'talk to Accounting' because I don't want to think about it right now."
Garrett‘ waves it off.
Phyllis: "Who else can we trust? Sachim seems likely, in my opinion, given my interpretation of his father’s visions and the events we've witnessed so far."
Ananth: "They'll be back in Flint sooner or later."
Ananth: "We have something they want."
Delft: "Two months, in fact."
Garrett: "We're also a huge pain in their side, probably. Even given the last skirmish."
Delft: "The peace summit with Danor is in here, in Flint, near the start of Spring. Lya's one of the guests."
Gerald: "Haha not anymore, I should hope."
Ananth: "Stock up on fireworks."
Ernst chews at his lip before speaking up. "Well, accountings going to love this then. I'm putting in a request to eat up more funds. I need to acquire oil for the lantern and if I'm not mistaken it's going to be a bit of a trial and error process."
Delft shakes his head. "We've got nothing concrete on her other than a sword."
Garrett: "We still have my foot, right?"
Delft: "It's basically you-say she-says."
Garrett: "You saved it, right?"
Gerald: "Yeah that blade was uh."
Gerald: "Super fucking distinctive."
Gerald: "As was the cut it made."
Phyllis: "We do have the mayor of a huge gambling city that owes us a favor."
Delft: "Nice scar, but it happened on foreign soil and there's not much we can do about it."
Gerald: "Also I'm gunna shoot her if she turns up. She came out swinging, didn't even try and talk us down."
Ananth: "I… sir. She is a -threat to the nation-. To our king and country."
Delft: "Not without my say so. You'll start a war with Danor if you shoot her when she steps off the boat."
Ananth: "What are we here for if our testimony is going to be ignored?"
Gerald: "Yeah,"
Garrett: "So… we need to get to Danor and do it beforehand?"
Gerald: "I don't need her to step off the boat to be in my firing range."
Ernst: "I'm not sure how admissible out testimony is considering we were doing illegal foreign activities to begin with."
Ananth: "…we should investigate the sovereign of Danor. If he's not with the conspiracy, he's in danger, and if he is…"
Delft sighs. "Look. I don't like it. I know you don't like it. But we can't prove anything. We barely know anything about the Obscurati as it stands."
Delft: "And if Danor is involved, and we shoot their foreign minister, they'll declare war."
[OOC] Aleith|DM: *isn't involved
Delft: "Hell, if they ARE involved, they'll still declare war."
Gerald: "I mean,"
Garrett: "That's kind of where this is going -anyway- so."
Delft: "We didn't exactly do that great in the last one."
Gerald: "What's the difference between War and constant terrorist attacks on our soil, other than war letting us use our entire military?"
Delft: "Those we can try doing something about."
Ernst: "It also lets them use their much larger entire military rather than covert attacks for what it's worth."
Gerald‘ folds his arms over his chest.
Phyllis: "Surgically strike, and we can cut off their movement before it gains momentum."
Phyllis: "Openly strike, and they’ll roll over us."
Garrett: "Please don't use that metaphor."
Delft: "While we wait for the peace summit, we'll start cracking down on Lorcan Kell's guild. We know they're connected to the Obscurati somehow."
Garrett: "(I'm kidding, I don't care, haha.)"
Ananth: "Cook up some excuse to disinvite her from the damn party, at the very least. She is an agent of the enemy, sir."
Garrett: "Shit I'll take that."
Garrett: "I hate him, too."
Delft: "She's the very heart of this agreement. We can't."
Phyllis: "I was going to ask about him. His guildmates were at our HQ."
Delft: "And that's why it's personal."
Phyllis: "Does this leave a power vacuum for the Family?"
Garrett: "I got enough rancor for all these mooks."
Delft frowns. "Probably."
Phyllis: "Another slip for the 'I-Told-You-So Jar.'"
Delft: "They play nicer for the most part, but they're still shipping illegal goods in and profitting off of shopkeepers."
Ananth: "…sir. If the king is assassinated during the talks I am going to hold you -personally- responsible. I just want us to be clear on this."
Garrett: "I-deally we'd have something to replace it with, official or not, but two months is sort of a short amount of time."
Delft: "I know."
Garrett: "We just have to sort of jump into the tiger's mouth here, don't we?"
Phyllis: "Spycraft is Delft's craft."
Delft: "Sadly, yes. I'm hoping we can crack down on the guild before they get here on the 13th of Spring."
Delft: "Maybe if we can find something with Kell, we can call off the summit."
Garrett: "-Now- we're talkin'."
Ananth perks up.
Phyllis: "Feet first, Garrett."
Garrett: "Security concerns, oh man we just busted this fool, hey let's reschedule and then be continuing the investigation on the Obs on the down-low."
Garrett‘ directly turns to Phyllis and goes "Guess I’ll never be the head of a major corporation."
Garrett: "Anyway it was fun, I'd be down for this again."
Delft: "Alright. Dismissed."
Garrett‘ salutes.
Phyllis: "If I have anything else to ask you, I can come again, correct?"
Delft nods. "Sure thing."
Ernst glances at Delft. "So. Requisition? Yes, no?"
Aleith|DM: You level up to 10, and receive a stipend of 25,600 gp over the next couple of months as you start cracking down on Lorcan Kell’s guild.
Ernst: "I'm going to need a lot of oil to figure out the lantern."
Phyllis: "Witchoil, I presume?"
Delft: "I'll let you work with the people experimenting with it."
Ernst: "Attuned to the right planar energies, yeah."
Phyllis: "Oh. We found another."
Ernst: "I have a fully functional one."
Aleith|DM: Your prestige with Risur, the Obscurati, and the Family increases by 1. For rescuing Isobel and helping her get to safety, your prestige with the Unseen Court increase by 1.
