14 After Curfew

Dusk in Cheapside

Awarded 1 xp to Dan and 2xp to Elizabeth
(Note that Dan is now a “Seasoned” explorer on 20+xp and so this was based on level of danger and character development.)

Email post session 14:

All,
A quick note on last session. (Paul was keen to visit the book depository, so we’ll include him in the group visit and assume he was there).

Chapter 2

After James the Librarian disappeared from the cellar of the safe-house in Cheapside, you searched his satchel, finding a well thumbed book called “Legends of Old England” with some poorly written notes in the margins.
At the book depository in Holborn, Dan managed to pick the lock and you all rummaged around.

George Hartley wanted to stay there, so Elizabeth and Dan made their way back to the Convent in Southwark. That was the night of Wednesday
22nd September.

On Friday 24th September, the Pall Mall Gazette carries a front page article that catches your eyes:

“The Fall of The Gifted

It is dire indeed when a lady of once good standing falls, and so brazenly too that she mocks all civilisation. Once called Elizabeth she now names herself Judy and becomes a ladybird at the door of a Convent in Southwark, a place of God no less, hiding amongst the trappings of blessed morality.

At least one encounter has been witnessed between this talented spiritualist and a gonoph gal-sneaker from the Twice Rebellious Union States, disturbing the sleep of the good families of the area and their children.

Woe upon the Convent if they are to continue to host such immoral banquets and woe to the good ladies there lest they become betrothed to an Abbess of another sort! The area can ill afford to attract further crime, and dollymops will flock there aplenty with their attendant crooks and rollers, mug-takers will stalk the alleyways around for johns and flash houses will appear to appease the bludgers.
All good citizens must beware the spread of these wicked ways and the malodorous tidings they bring."

We will skip a week, so if there is anything you want to do in the meantime, please send me a mail. I will write separately to Paul.
