 +[20:29] <​@MaGy_ST>​ (We'll start at the crime scene)
 +[20:30] <​@MaGy_ST> ​ Agent Talon looks around again after dismissing the witnesses. ​ "​Remember the good old days when it was just either sex or cannibalism?"​
 +[20:32] <​@MaGy_ST> ​ Talon takes another picture and presses some spots on his keypad. ​ "​I'​m sending the pictures to Dr. Braun. ​ Maybe he can give us some info before he lands."​
 +[20:33] <​@Akuma_Tokai>​ hopefully
 +[20:33] <​@Akuma_Tokai>​ (gah) "​Hopefully he can, more information would be nice..."​
 +[20:34] <​@MaGy_ST> ​ The other police mill around, taking pictures and waiting for the ME to show up.
 +[20:35] <​@MaGy_ST> ​ Agent Talon puts his phone back in his pocket. ​ "So -- no panic button. ​ What do your consultants say?"
 +[20:35] <​@Akuma_Tokai>​ "​Cannibalism... I remember that one we where on... That sicko added a whole new layer to '​eating her out'"​ (Sorry.. Couldn'​t help myself...)
 +[20:36] <​@MaGy_ST> ​ Talon shakes his head.  "​Moving on..."
 +[20:38] <​@MaGy_ST>​ The ME -- a pale man with a somber look, comes in with the body bag and stretcher. ​ He looks at the agent, then to Akuma and back to the body.  He shrugs his shoulders and gets to the body.
 +[20:38] <​@MaGy_ST> ​ The ME -- a pale man with a somber look, comes in with the body bag and stretcher. ​ He looks at the agent, then to Akuma and back to the body.  He shrugs his shoulders and gets to the body.
 +[20:39] <​@MaGy_ST>​ (Julius? ​ Have any questions? ​ Want to examine anything?)
 +[20:42] <​@MaGy_ST>​ (Crichton? ​ Anyone?)
 +[20:42] <​@MaGy_ST>​ (Hello?)
 +[20:42] <​@Kya-the-cute>​ (hi)
 +[20:44] <​+Julius>​ [hi]
 +[20:44] <​@MaGy_ST>​ (Julius -- did you want to examine the scene?)
 +[20:44] <​@Kya-the-cute>​ (Well the Winter Court is well represented in the responses. ​ /me ooc high fives Julius)
 +[20:44] <​+Julius>​ [sure]
 +[20:44] <​+Julius>​ [/me high fives]
 +[20:46] <​+Julius>​ [ill look around the body]
 +[20:46] * Tasso is now known as `peter
 +[20:46] * +`peter bends over near the tree and vomits.
 +[20:48] * +`peter retches again and takes to a knee for balance.
 +[20:48] <​@MaGy_ST> ​ Peter looks pale, even after he purges his stomach of everything since this morning -- with the scent of bile comes the tang of fruit.
 +[20:49] <​@MaGy_ST> ​ Talon helps Peter to his feet.  "Come on -- let me get you to the car.  Officer... could you get this man some water?"​
 +[20:50] <​@MaGy_ST> ​ Talon'​s phone buzzes, and he hands it to Akuma. ​ "It should be Braun."​
 +[20:50] <​@MaGy_ST> ​ Talon guides Peter up the trail.
 +[20:51] <​@MaGy_ST>​ (let me head on over to Kya)
 +[20:51] <​+`peter>​ "I... I think I need to go back to my place. Tell Akuma I'll contact him when I'm feeling better. Sorry I can't be of more help."
 +[20:51] <​+`peter>​ (and I'm out. gl, all!)
 +[20:52] <​Shaddow>​ (take care tasso! and congrats on the new job!)
 +[20:52] <​@MaGy_ST> ​ "​I'​ll take you back, sir.  We'll get you some water."​
 +[20:52] <​@MaGy_ST>​ (Good luck on the job!)
 +[20:52] <​@Kya-the-cute>​ (See ya)
 +[20:53] <​+Julius>​ [see ya,good luck with the job]
 +[20:53] <​@MaGy_ST> ​ Brianne coasts down the road, heading for a seedier part of downtown dominated with bailbonds, pawn shops and...shoe stores...
 +[20:53] * Kya-the-cute is now known as Kya
 +[20:54] * @Kya watches the world pass her by through the window.
 +[20:55] <​@MaGy_ST> ​ "Now, I'm looking for a locket with a picture of Grandpa Jimmy and Grandma Marianne in it." ​ She stops at a stop light. ​ "I think I know where it is."
 +[20:55] <​@Kya>​ "​OK"​
 +[20:57] <​@MaGy_ST> ​ "None of this freaks you out?  Well... you're talking to ghosts, so I'd imagine that the freak-out-o-meter is a little higher."​
 +[20:57] <​@Kya>​ "​Grandpa Jimmy doesn'​t look like a ghost."​
 +[20:57] <​@MaGy_ST> ​ Brianne stops and turns on the blinker.
 +[20:58] <​@MaGy_ST> ​ "​Yeah... I don't know why.  He looks good, but I think it might be just a way of how he died."
 +[20:58] <​@Kya>​ "How did he die?"
 +[20:59] <​@MaGy_ST> ​ She turns left, narrowly avoiding an oncoming car.  "He had a heart attack in his sleep. ​ Went peacefully. ​ He even told me as such."
 +[20:59] <​@MaGy_ST> ​ "He wants the locket because that's the last thing he thought about. ​ He misses Grandma."​
 +[21:00] <​@Kya>​ "​That'​s nice."
 +[21:01] <​@MaGy_ST> ​ Brianne pulls into a parking lot.  She turns off the engine and lets it cool in ticks. ​ "​Things go weird -- run.  Don't worry about me.  This place gives me...a bad feeling. ​ OK, sweetie?"​
 +[21:01] <​@Kya>​ "Why does this place make you feel weird?"​
 +[21:02] <​@MaGy_ST> ​ She looks back at the place. ​ Her eyes go to each of the visible corners on the roof, but pause in the middle. ​ "Ever seen those old movies with the Indians, and they stop drumming?" ​ She looks at the roof again. ​ "​Whatever'​s here just stopped drumming."​
 +[21:03] * @Kya scratches her head.
 +[21:03] <​@Kya>​ "You mean like that moment in Disney movies when the bad guys get the upper hand on the princess, before there'​s a happy ending?"​
 +[21:04] <​@MaGy_ST> ​ Brianne nods.  "​Right. ​ Although if we find dancing candlesticks,​ we should excuse ourselves."​
 +[21:04] <​@Kya>​ "You want me to scout it out first?"​
 +[21:05] <​@MaGy_ST> ​ She looks concerned. ​ "No -- we'll go in together. ​ You're sneaky, but I don't want you to get hurt."
 +[21:05] <​@Kya>​ "​Ok"​
 +[21:05] <​@MaGy_ST> ​ She gets out of the car, looking around before closing the door.
 +[21:06] * @Kya slips out her side and immediately makes for the shadows.
 +[21:07] * Kairi ( has joined #grovewood
 +[21:07] * Kairi ( Quit (Client Quit)
 +[21:07] * +TolBot waves goodbye to Kairi
 +[21:07] <​@MaGy_ST> ​ "​Sweetie,​ I -- dang it." ​ She looks over her shoulder. ​ "You say so, Grandpa."​
 +[21:07] <​@MaGy_ST>​ (Back to the crime scene)
 +[21:08] <​@MaGy_ST> ​ Talon comes back.  "Your friend is getting sent back home by a LEO."
 +[21:09] <​+Julius>​ "Oh, good."
 +[21:10] <​@MaGy_ST>​ Talon turns to Julius. ​ "What are your thought on all of this?"
 +[21:10] <​@MaGy_ST> ​ Talon turns to Julius. ​ "What are your thought on all of this?"
 +[21:10] <​+Julius>​ "I just think we should find the killer as soon as possible."​
 +[21:12] <​@MaGy_ST> ​ Talon nods.  "​Nothing that you can think of about the...what did your friend call it?"
 +[21:14] * +Julius looks puzzled
 +[21:14] <​@MaGy_ST> ​ He points to the head as it's picked up and put with the body.
 +[21:15] <​@MaGy_ST>​ "​That. ​ Brass head?"
 +[21:15] <​+Julius>​ "Oh. It is odd,to be sure."
 +[21:16] <​@MaGy_ST> ​ "Right -- no idea why someone would do that?"
 +[21:16] <​+Julius>​ [should i roll for said ideas?]
 +[21:17] <​@MaGy_ST>​ (yes -- roll Int+Occ, diff 8)
 +[21:17] <​+Julius>​ 4d10 8
 +[21:17] <​+TolBot>​ [Julius'​s 4d10 (8Tgt/​10Agn) [ 6 2 5 3 ]: Failure ]
 +[21:18] <​+Julius>​ "I cant think of anything."​
 +[21:19] <​@MaGy_ST> ​ Talon looks a little flustered. ​ "​Right. ​ Well, if you think of anything -- give me a call."
 +[21:19] * +Julius nods
 +[21:21] <​@MaGy_ST> ​ Talon takes one last look at the bag as the ME carts it back up.  "​Yeah."​
 +[21:21] <​@MaGy_ST>​ (bouncing back to Kya)
 +[21:21] <​@MaGy_ST> ​ Brianne walks into the pawn shop, trying her best with the floppy hat and sunglasses to not look like a native.
 +[21:22] * @Kya follows behind her, trying to not be noticed.
 +[21:23] <​@MaGy_ST> ​ The guy behind the counters smiles slatly and asks "Help you with anything?"​
 +[21:24] * @Tolman ( Quit (Quit: Tolman)
 +[21:24] * +TolBot ( Quit (Quit: TolBot)
 +[21:25] <​@MaGy_ST> ​ Brianne smiles. ​ "Sure, honey -- I'm looking for a locket."​
 +[21:25] * Tolman ( has joined #grovewood
 +[21:25] * ChanServ sets mode: +o Tolman
 +[21:25] * TolBot ( has joined #grovewood
 +[21:25] <​@MaGy_ST> ​ "What kind of locket?" ​ he shuffles over to the jewelry case.
 +[21:26] <​@MaGy_ST> ​ "A silver one, about yay big," she holds her thumb and forefinger apart about an inch.
 +[21:26] * @Kya looks around the shop, keeping an eye out for anything off.
 +[21:27] <​@MaGy_ST> ​ The adults, and Brianne, don't seem to pay you any mind.
 +[21:27] <​@Kya>​ (Just the way I like it)
 +[21:27] <​@MaGy_ST> ​ "A yay big.  Silver chain?"​
 +[21:28] <​@MaGy_ST> ​ "There was one on it, I don't know if it still has it or not."
 +[21:28] <​@MaGy_ST>​ The man shuffles over to the case and opens it up.  One of the other counter helpers walks over to Kya, but doesn'​t seem to take his eyes off of her.
 +[21:29] <​@MaGy_ST>​ The man shuffles over to the case and opens it up.  One of the other counter helpers walks over to Kya, but doesn'​t seem to take his eyes off of her.
 +[21:29] <​@Kya>​ (Off me or off Brianne?)
 +[21:29] <​@MaGy_ST>​ (Brianne)
 +[21:30] <​@MaGy_ST> ​ There is something familiar and predatory about that look.
 +[21:31] <​@MaGy_ST> ​ "​Let'​s see what we have here." ​ The man takes out a velvet lined tray and sets it down.  "See anything that tickles your fancy?"​
 +[21:31] * @Kya slides her hand into the pocket of her dress, and feels the smooth steel handles of her sharp sewing scissors.
 +[21:31] <​@MaGy_ST>​ (I'm going to alter your pants...permanently...)
 +[21:32] <​@Kya>​ (Yup)
 +[21:32] * @Kya continues to keep herself relatively unseen.
 +[21:33] <​@MaGy_ST> ​ Brianne looks over the tray.  The expression in her face changes -- she looks a little older and a little more serious.
 +[21:33] <​@MaGy_ST> ​ "This one?  Can I see it?"
 +[21:34] <​@MaGy_ST> ​ The man takes it out of the tray and hands it to Brianne. ​ "It didn't come with no chain."​
 +[21:35] <​@MaGy_ST> ​ The other man fidgets with his thumb and makes his way to the duo.  "​Umm...bossman...can know?"
 +[21:35] <​@MaGy_ST> ​ The man behind the counter looks familiarly disgusted. ​ "You don't have to ask for permission. ​ You gotta go -- go."
 +[21:35] <​@MaGy_ST> ​ The other man nods sheepishly and heads to the back room.
 +[21:36] <​@MaGy_ST> ​ The counter man shakes his head and mutters something.
 +[21:37] <​@MaGy_ST> ​ Brianne opens up the locket. ​ She studies it and shakes her head.  "No, this isn't it.  How abuot this one?"
 +[21:37] <​@MaGy_ST> ​ The man leans in.  "Is there one you speficially lookin'​ for?"
 +[21:39] * @Kya just watches, and waits.
 +[21:40] <​@Akuma_Tokai>​ (Sorry guys, still storming like a mofo here)
 +[21:40] <​@MaGy_ST> ​ Brianne scratches the back of her neck.  "One with my Grandpa and Grandma in it.  It was taken three months ago."
 +[21:40] <​@MaGy_ST>​ (that'​s ok)
 +[21:42] * @Kya looks around to see if there are any cases with knives, or openly displayed knives... just in case.
 +[21:43] <​@MaGy_ST>​ (Kya -- roll Wits+Occult,​ difficulty is 8 minus however many points in Wyrd you have)
 +[21:44] <​@Kya>​ 3d10 6/10
 +[21:44] <​TolBot>​ [Kya's 3d10 (6Tgt/​10Agn) [ 4 3 4 ]: Failure ]
 +[21:44] <​@Kya>​ (Well damn)
 +[21:45] <​@MaGy_ST> ​ The man nods.  "​Anything familiar about it?  Markings?"​
 +[21:46] <​@MaGy_ST> ​ Brianne touches the back of her neck.  her face is looking a little flush.
 +[21:47] <​@MaGy_ST> ​ Kya, you see Grandpa Jimmy storm by the two of them and you, heading to the back.
 +[21:47] * @Kya raises a brow.
 +[21:48] <​@MaGy_ST> ​ Grandpa Jimmy'​s saying stuff that you instinctive know little girls shouldn'​t say.
 +[21:48] * @Kya stays with Brianne, thinking something might be wrong with her, even though she doesn'​t know what.
 +[21:49] <​@MaGy_ST> ​ "I don't know if it has an inscription,​ but I know that there was a picture of my grandpa and grandma in it.  Grandpa was in the army, so he's wearing his soldier'​s cap."
 +[21:49] <​@MaGy_ST> ​ "Let me get some stuff out of the back.  Hang on a second."​
 +[21:50] <​@MaGy_ST> ​ Kya, you look at Brianne, and you can get the feeling that there is something not right.
 +[21:50] <​@MaGy_ST>​ (brb -- slight crash)
 +[21:50] * @Kya waits for the man to go out back, so they are alone in the shop.
 +[21:51] <​@Kya>​ (Grandpa Jimmy must have dropped something again.)
 +[21:58] <​@MaGy_ST>​ (back -- sorry about that.  Wife was trying to clean one of the light fixtures and it dropped)
 +[21:58] <​@MaGy_ST> ​ The man walks to the back, closing a door behind him.
 +[21:59] <​@Kya>​ "You need to go to the car and lock the door right now."
 +[21:59] <​@MaGy_ST> ​ "​Why?"​
 +[22:00] <​@Kya>​ "They did something to you, you're sick now."
 +[22:00] <​@MaGy_ST> ​ She looks to the back and then to the front.
 +[22:00] <​@MaGy_ST> ​ "​Sweetie,​ I probably just need some water or a fruit bar."
 +[22:01] <​@Kya>​ "No, go to the car."
 +[22:01] * @Kya starts getting frustrated.
 +[22:02] <​@MaGy_ST>​ (roll manip+intimidation,​ diff 8, you cna spend of point of Glamour for an automatic success. ​ I'll roll Brianne'​s willpower to counter)
 +[22:03] <​@MaGy_ST>​ (same diff of 8)
 +[22:03] <​@MaGy_ST>​ (no exploding 10s)
 +[22:03] <​@Kya>​ (Can I use Persusion instead of Intimidation?​)
 +[22:03] <​@MaGy_ST>​ (...sure)

 +[22:04] <​@MaGy_ST>​ (...)
 +[22:04] <​@Kya>​ (Cuteness overpowers rerolls)
 +[22:04] <​@MaGy_ST> ​ Brianne looks down at this mouthy pre-teen...and starts walking back to the car.
 +[22:05] <​@MaGy_ST> ​ "I don't hear anything from you in three minutes, I'm calling the police."​
 +[22:05] <​@MaGy_ST> ​ She walks out the door, looking both ways as she crosses the strength.
 +[22:05] * @Kya smiles and heads for the back room... all sneaky like.
 +[22:05] <​@MaGy_ST>​ (Seriously -- whos' the adult in this group?)
 +[22:06] <​@Kya>​ (You may wan't to switch to the other group, if you have material for them.)
 +[22:06] <​@MaGy_ST>​ (yeah -- I need to figure out what you're going to see)
 +[22:06] <​@MaGy_ST>​ (Crime Scene! ​ The Musical!)
 +[22:07] <​@Akuma_Tokai>​ (I'm only semi, I have to run down to our old house, the basement is flooding there so I need to get the sump pump set up)
 +[22:08] <​@MaGy_ST> ​ Talon takes his phone back from Akuma, who is too attracted to the circle for his own good.  It rings once and he answers it.  "​Talon. ​ Yes, Dr. got my message? ​ Good.  What am I looking at?"
 +[22:08] <​@MaGy_ST>​ (ok -- I'll carry on)
 +[22:10] <​@MaGy_ST> ​ "​Yes. ​ Really? ​ What kind of questions?" ​ He balances his phone on the crook of his shoulders as he takes out a pad.  "​Right. ​ Leaves? ​ I don't remember seeing any leaves, but the forensics guys will get a look at that.  Answers questions posed to it and whatever leaves are in it influences the answers. ​ Who seriously believes this?"
 +[22:12] <​@MaGy_ST> ​ Talon snaps his fingers and pulls the phone away from his mouth. ​ "Tell forensics to check for leaves in that thing'​s mouth." ​ He turns back to the phone.
 +[22:13] <​@MaGy_ST> ​ "​Doctor -- if someone were to do this, what kind of questions do they want answered?"​
 +[22:14] * +Julius raises an eyebrow,​then goes to find somebody that looks like a forensic guy
 +[22:14] <​@MaGy_ST>​ (anyone with a dark blue windbreaker with "Crime Scene" seems to fit the bill.  One of them is taking some burned leaves.)
 +[22:15] <​+Julius>​ "​You'​re supposed to check the head for leaves."​
 +[22:16] <​@MaGy_ST> ​ The crime scene investigator looks at you like you asked him something in an obscure dialect of Swahili.
 +[22:16] <​@MaGy_ST> ​ "​Right...we'​ll get on that.  Are you with the FBI?"
 +[22:16] <​+Julius>​ "​I'​"​
 +[22:17] * @Akuma_Tokai walks over to Julius, "​He'​s with me."
 +[22:17] <​+Julius>​ "Agent Talon over there told me to tell you."
 +[22:17] <​@MaGy_ST> ​ He sighs and puts his fingers on the bridge of his nose.  "Then please consult three paces away from me."
 +[22:18] * @Akuma_Tokai glances over at Jack waiting for him to finish his call.
 +[22:19] * +Julius stays with the forensic person
 +[22:19] <​@MaGy_ST>​ (reminds me of Stephen King's cameo on "​Sleepwalkers"​)
 +[22:20] <​@MaGy_ST> ​ "​Right,​ Doctor. ​ Sorry to disturb you on the flight. ​ Please call me when you get in.  I'll have someone come get you."
 +[22:20] <​@MaGy_ST> ​ Talon puts his phone back in his pocket.
 +[22:21] <​@Akuma_Tokai>​ "Hey Jack... Passenger Manifests from lets say a week before the first murder here... shall we task somebody to looking at similiar passengers between it and the previous locations murders?"​
 +[22:21] <​@MaGy_ST> ​ "Get this -- someone can make these bronze heads to answer questions. ​ Sick."
 +[22:21] <​@MaGy_ST> ​ He nods.  "​Yeah. ​ What are you looking for?"
 +[22:22] <​@Akuma_Tokai>​ "​Similiar people at the times of the murders, might get us the perp."
 +[22:22] <​@Akuma_Tokai>​ "​Probably should do the same with Trains and buses..." ​
 +[22:22] <​@MaGy_ST> ​ The forensic man looks back up at Julius. ​ "Can I *help* you?"
 +[22:22] <​+Julius>​ "​No,​carry on."
 +[22:23] <​@MaGy_ST> ​ "​We'​ll have to get some help from the Analytics Department. ​ They might be able to crunch some numbers."​
 +[22:23] <​@MaGy_ST>​ (snerk)
 +[22:24] <​@MaGy_ST>​ (So -- what's the FBI's Wits+Investigation dice pool?)
 +[22:24] <​@Akuma_Tokai>​ (Real life or in game? rofl)
 +[22:24] <​@MaGy_ST> ​ "​I'​ll slap some babies and kiss some hands to see if we can get this bumped up."
 +[22:27] <​@MaGy_ST> ​ Talon turns again, but he looks over his shoulder back at Akuma. ​ "Oh, that brass head thing? ​ Someone wanted some questions answered. ​ Enough to cut off someone'​s head and dip it in brass or bronze."​
 +[22:28] <​@MaGy_ST>​ (ok -- time to get all Scooby-Doo and the Bedeviled Pawn Shop)
 +[22:28] <​@Kya>​ (Jinkies!)
 +[22:29] <​+Julius>​ [zoinks!]
 +[22:29] <​@MaGy_ST> ​ as Kya gets close to teh back, there is a change in the air.  It feels thicker, smells slightly of brimstone and char.
 +[22:30] * @Kya listens at the door and tries to peek through the cracks.
 +[22:30] * @Kya also grabs a knife.
 +[22:30] <​@MaGy_ST> ​ There is whispering in a language you can't figure out, but it even makes your skin crawl.
 +[22:31] * @Kya slowly pushes the door open to get a better look at what's going on.
 +[22:32] <​@MaGy_ST> ​ Behind the door where you hear the chanting coming from, you see that creepy staring guy kneeling in front of a circle drawn on the wall with three burning red candles under it.
 +[22:34] <​@MaGy_ST> ​ "Meni eshitish qora ko'​zlari Mening sovrini uchun menga himoya olib..."​
 +[22:35] <​@Akuma_Tokai>​ (e-shit-ish... really? XD)
 +[22:35] * @Kya sneaks into the room.
 +[22:35] <​@MaGy_ST> ​ You feel power -- Gentry-like power coming from that circle.
 +[22:36] <​@MaGy_ST> ​ "What you are little one that servant threaten mine?"
 +[22:36] * @Kya feels her skin crawl, and looks around for Jimmy and the locket.
 +[22:36] <​@MaGy_ST> ​ In the door, you see a being of pitch black shadow with red eyes looking down at you.
 +[22:37] * @Kya takes a step back.
 +[22:37] <​@MaGy_ST> ​ The guy stops chanting to turn around.
 +[22:37] <​@MaGy_ST>​ "What the hell are you--"
 +[22:38] <​@MaGy_ST> ​ "What the hell is going on back there?"​
 +[22:38] <​@MaGy_ST> ​ The first guy comes back, dropping the tray when he see the shadow.
 +[22:39] <​@MaGy_ST> ​ "​Mother of --"
 +[22:39] <​@MaGy_ST> ​ The shadow thrusts his hand into the man's chest. ​ He gasps once before pitching backwards.

 +[23:46] <​@MaGy_ST> ​ "​Clock'​s ticking on this one.  I need it tomorrow. ​ Pull what you need, call the field offices in Richmond and Miami if you have to.  Yes, tell her to wear her best dress."​ He hangs up.  "Not that it's going to make much of a difference."​

 +[23:49] <​@MaGy_ST> ​ Talon nods.  "Yeah, I might need something to knock myself out before the date.  What do your consultants have on this whole thing? ​ They
 +[23:49] <​@MaGy_ST> ​ 're not really the talkative sort."
 +[23:49] <​@Akuma_Tokai>​ "Thats why we get along, because I'm not really either."​

 +[23:51] <​+Julius>​ "​Akuma,​ a word?"
 +[23:51] <​@Akuma_Tokai>​ "Oh they deduced that the brazzen head was used to ask a question. They could probably even tell us what the question was if given enough time."
 +[23:51] <​@Akuma_Tokai>​ "​Excuse me a moment Jack," he walks over to Julius.
 +[23:51] <​@MaGy_ST> ​ Agent Talon nods and goes back to one of hte uniformed officers.
