PostSubject: 06/23/15 A Laundromat [Attn: Ben]   Mon Jun 22, 2015 3:17 pm

* During his time off from work and duties around the caern, Steelheart begins spending time out in Perry, staking out what otherwise appears to be an ordinary laundromat. Anyone of his pack is welcome to join him on this stake-out. *

OOC: This is the one where the payments were being sent, Ben. Pretty sure you said Perry, but feel free to correct me as Steelheart would remember better than I.

He'll check out the spiritual area as well, through Pulse of the Invisible, and actually stepping over if it looks relatively clear. That way, he can watch the physical world even more discretely.

Sure enough, your old friend the "collector" arrives, not long after you begin your stakeout.

He doesn't look happy. In fact, he looks both severely pissed off and badly shaken--not to mention like he's been through the wringer a couple of times.

"I'm here to pick up my comforter," he snaps at the person behind the counter. Once again, the attendant seems to go into a trance, going to the back to bring out a satchel.

Artemis is in the backseat of the car, big sunglasses, a cheap camera, and half of a box of donuts splayed out in front of her. "What exactly are we looking for?"

A donut vanishes from the box as Mitch appears hunkered down next to Artemis. "What's the scoop, bosses?"

The raggedy figure who emerges from the laundromat, satchel in hand, is unkempt and unshaven.  He twitches, and his eyes are bloodshot and half-deranged.

Mitch: Rat's voice speaks in your mind, and you feel overtones of grief mingled with rage.

<< Look what they've done to your brother.  He was one of the best among you, until he fell. >>

The donut stops in mid-flight to Mitch's cavernous maw.  He stares intently at the figure, and a low growl escapes his throat.

To Rat:  << who was he, my lord?>>  OOC:  Bone Gnawer Lore x3 for reference of names/deeds.

"That looks an awful lot like a Bone Gnawer I've heard of. Adren rank last I knew, goes back about three years. Dunno much more about him than that. He went dark in Ohio and nobody's heard of him since then." He takes a bite of the donut. "If the stories are true he's gonna be a strong survivor."

Steelheart blinks in surprise and looks at Mitch.

"Well, I didn't expect that. I was thinking he might have been Ratkin, but the signs could also mean that Rat was his patron, so Gnawer definitely fits. Makes it a bit easier, actually. Less of an unknown than a whole other breed of shifter.

"Mitch, he's coming up pretty Wyrmy, and giving off signs of significant corruption and mutation. But the fact that my gift showed an image of Rat instead of Whippoorwill might mean that while he's far gone, he's not all gone.

"All of my intel on the local Spirals said that they were once Wendigo, Glass Walkers, Get, and Shadow Lords. Nothing on any fallen Bone Gnawers, so that might be a good sign. Best case, he's not a Spiral, worst case, he is but he's not associated with the Pit and is a relative new-comer so he won't have support."

He looks back at Artie, and says, "This is definitely a shady, Wyrm-tainted money operation, but like I said, I don't have a definite answer yet on his nature. I'd recommend we shadow this guy for a bit and try to learn more. Mitch, when/if we decide to make the approach, you might be the best suited to make contact so he doesn't flip out. He looks like he's had some hard years."

Steelheart pauses for a moment, and then asks, "Mitch, do you recall what this guy's auspice and deed-name were? Could give us a better sense of how well we can expect tailing him to work."

"Rat's....not happy. REALLY not happy. He does still recognize this guy, though. Rat, at least, marks him as fallen."

"Okay then. So, it's a kill mission then. Artie, we clear to tail him somewhere private and end this?"

"Bosses?" Mitch's voice is tentative. "Rat called him my brother and then told me he'd fallen. I got no experience with this and I'll follow your lead as always. CAN we try reclaiming him and is it worth the risk?"

Steelheart quirks an eyebrow and says, "So it isn't certain yet, after all. Good. We may still have a shot. Mitch, I'm definitely up for saving him if we can. If Rat still calls him a brother, then we gotta give it a shot. Family is family."

"I'm okay with it. Let's snatch and grab. It might be snatch, beatdown, and then grab." She wolfs another donut. "Fuel up!"

"I'm betting he's at LEAST gonna be able to shrug off Falling Touch like I can. Beyond that I dunno what he might have in his satchel. THAT'S gonna be like my bag as well - figure anything could come out of it." He considers. "Yer arrows didn't outright kill Chris; maybe lead with just ONE arrow to soften him up first." "Fueling!"

"If he's on schedule, the satchel is full of cash. Payments come in, and this guy picks up his 'comforter' on a regular basis."

He looks at both of them, cracks his neck from side to side, and says, "Let's do this."

Mitch reaches into his satchel and pauses. "Now what was that....? Right!" He nods. "Deed name was Pit Stop, a Ragabash with a MacGyver tendency. He also knew Ratkin; they might still be working with him. I doubt he has backup nearby, but it's possible."

"Okay then. Barring any odd surprises, I should be able to trail him in the Umbra to remain unseen, seeing across the Gauntlet as needed, and I think you two have far better stealth capabilities than I do, so you can follow him in this world if you like."

If he's a Ragabash, he'll have a lot of stealth and evasion gifts, just like me. Make sure you're not spotted, Mitch, or you'll never see him again. I suggest trailing him until he's way far away from the laundry so that he doesn't burn it as a drop site.

"I'll bring up the rear on this one, I'm OK but not Ragabash-levels of stealth. Don't wanna spook him. I'll probably go Lupus to start with as well - easier to believe a dog wandering around out here if I get spotted."

Steelheart: When you step across into the Umbra, you spot several twisted rat-spirits. They scatter and skitter away at your approach.

Mitch and Artie: In the real world, you trail your man at a prudent distance. There's something odd about his bearing--almost an air of resignation.

He stops at a Starbucks and takes a seat at one of the outside tables. He appears to be waiting for someone.

Steelheart will pull a quick "Name the Spirit" on one of them before they run off.

Pack-link: A few twisted rat spirits ran off as I started following through the Umbra. Be careful. They might tip him off.

Pack-link: Looks like he's waiting for somebody. Do we wait and see about an ID on the next link in the chain?

I'd say give it a sec. Of course, there's the chance that we've been made and he's ballsy enough to be waiting for a sit-down with us.

A few minutes tick by. The man at the table waits, calmly enough, eyes scanning in your general direction, though not singling you out.

You might be right, Steelheart. Looks like he knows somebody is out here, just not where exactly.
