*GL is torn by indecision, and doesn't make it through the gate in time. The others are already some ways off, so GL just follows by himself, close to the city wall. As he passes a small indent in the wall, an arm reaches out and pulls him in. A swarthy looking face moves in close to his for a good look.*

Thief: Arrrggghhh. Another bloody soldier. Take his helmet and sword, but he'll have nothing else of value. Throw him in the pen with the others.

*GL's helmet and sword are taken from him and he is pushed through a hole in the wall, where other hand grab him and push him through a maze of alleyways and finally into a dark basement. A heavy door slams behind him and he hears a bolt pushed home. He senses others in the room and is surprised when someone lights a candle.*

Prisoner: We're not supposed to have light, but smuggling things in here is easy. The early morning guard is a friend and we are all breaking out in a few hours.

*Affy and Mackenzie make their way through the town. They come about half way through. Affy flinches for a moment, as though something extremely surprising had happened to another member of the party. But he decides to not do anything about it, since the other members of the party are all together, right?*

*Minos, meanwhile, is becoming more and more convinced that there is nothing to fear from his captors. Especially from captors that seemed to think of the longest way around a problem, as opposed to the simplest*

*And, the strange being continues watching the party, wondering if saving Garius would be the best usage of his alloted intervention*

[YK] Wait! Peet! I sense a disturbance in the Force ... one of us got captured. [senses around] No, not Mackenzie ... not Affy ... not you ... not me ... GL!!


Incidentally, Aff, it's Culex, not Cthulhex. The E-Mail header was a joke on the "Call of Cthulhu" horror roleplaying system.


[Mackenzie] GL's been captured!

*GL spends some time conversing with his fellow prisoners. He finds out that they are all victims of a gang of robbers who steal what they can from their victims, then sell them later as slaves to the Spartans. Tomorrow night, they are all scheduled to be transported to Sparta, but one of the prisoners is a government agent and another agent is the early morning guard. It is planned that during that guard's shift, the prisoners will be freed and the house will be raided by soldiers (the robbers sleep upstairs, when they are not conducting their "business"). GL hopes that his presence doesn't change this bit of history in any way.

YK, you had to use the force to check if it was *you* who had been captured... That's... reassuring...?

[YK] I have a weird sense of humor. What did you WANT?

*Despite knowing that an escape is immanant, GL dozes off, being exhausted by all of the action. He is woken by the sound of silence. He looks around to find the cell empty and the door open. He leaps up and runs out the door, stopping in indecision. The hallway in both directions is deserted and in both directions turns, so that GL can not see what lies beyond. He mentally flips a coin and turns to his right.

He runs as quietly down the hall as he can. When he reaches the turning, he peers around the corner and breathes a sigh of relief. Beyond is an open door to the outside, where dawn is just breaking. He is just starting around the corner, when he sees some motion outside the door. A soldier cautiously steps inside, his sword in his hand. He turns and motions to someone outside. A second soldier steps inside and begins up the stairs near the door. One by one, 4 soldiers enter and go up the stairs.

GL doesn't wait to see if any more come - he runs back down the hallway and around the far corner. He comes to an abrupt halt as the hallway ends in a blank wall. He backtracks to the first room off of the hallway. It is about the size of a closet and is absolutely empty. Sounds of a scuffle are heard upstairs and a scream rings out and is promptly cut off. GL looks up at where the scream comes from and notices a curved scrape on the ceiling of the cupboard. He examines the wooden back wall of the cupboard and finds a small knothole near the floor. As he puts his finger in the hole and pulls, he hears footsteps approaching down the hallway. The back wall swings inwards, scraping the ceiling slightly. GL steps through the doorway and hurriedly pulls the door shut. Moments after is closes, he hears a voice right outside the cupboard.*

Soldier (shouting): Nothing down here.

*GL heaves a sigh of relief and turns to see where he has put himself*


I will be away from now until Sunday

Mackenzie, can you try and sense where GL is? Our homing beacons haven't been working well lately, so I can't find 'im.


Incidentally, YK, I recognized the name "Cthulu", but from Lovecraftian stories, not roleplaying. Just FYI.

[Mackenzie] He's in some sort of house, I think ... Maybe we ought to try and find him.


"Cthulhu" is spelt with an H.

Okay, let's find 'im. But let's keep a low profile.

No, you can't. smiley - bigeyes

Peet, it's night time by now. The city gates wouldn't have been closed, otherwise.


*Affy and Mackeznie pick a house at random, and go through the door*

Early in GL's tome, "...an open door to the outside, where dawn is just breaking.", and a little time has passed since.

[Mackenzie looks around and uses her magic senses]

[Mackenzie] This is the one, all right ...


Let's say, for the sake of continuity, that it's morning by now.


[YK jumps onto a house, making sure he remains hidden, and uses his Force senses]

[YK] This is the one, all right ...

*The Professor - who, incidentally, went /around/ the city as opposed to through it - stops staring and following blankly, removes the PAG from his mouth, and has it destroyed.*

Ah, that's better! Now, where are we, and what's the situation?

*His Watch informs him, and the Professor nods.*
*Scanning ahead to make sure no one would see him, he teleports in front of the building with GL in, and runs another scan inside the building.*

Indeed, Garius appears to be within. A number of people have just left the building as well, so he's the only one left. At least, the only person I can currently find...

*He brings up a 3D holographic map of the house made from data acquired by the scan.*

Um, he doesn't seem to be in a room with any standard access to it...

You forgot to mention that Affy and Mackenzie entered it before you, and YK and Peet are on top of it.

Oops, I missed the bit where Affy and Mackenzie went in, sorry. I didn't mention the two on the roof because the holo-map is only of the inside of the house.
What a good comeback of mine. smiley - winkeye
