Avroville/Tavern

As they piled Penelop with drinks, alot of the younger lads boasted of their skill as a pilot and of being an ace three times over. Some older men stayed seated and watched with amusement as they waited to see how many of the boastful 'aces' got shot down by the newly arrived lass. There was another group of men, some rough and ready types who sat off to one side and kept themselves to themselves.



Areodome

Though wary at first of the newcomer, the aviators at the aerodrome welcomed Walter once a few words had been exchanged. After he'd be accepted, Walter was able to listen as the pilots complained about everything from service fees through to the weather and sky pirates.


Administration Office

"We'll see what we have." Replied the bespectacled clerk as he glances over the salvage Crowley and started appraising them. "Hmm yes, once reconditioned they should fetch a fair few coin."

"Verify some local legends? An unusable form form of payment, but then again it'll boost our profit margin on these." Commented the clerk. "Very well, I shall humour you...what legends in particular did you have in mind?"

Administrative Offices

"Well I am no pilot and have not seen the ground from the sky, like they do. But there are rumors and legends that say there is a Wulver camp nearby."

When the looks come in, Crowley continues. "I am also a scientist and a researcher. The past has many secrets for us."

Crusor looked over at Penelop as she was given drink after drink, and briefly thought about the merits of “acting natural”. However he quickly didn’t think he would be able to manage that and instead decided to listen as best he could. He spotted more than a few faces whom looked like they would sooner dent his face in rather than talk to him. It was this that made him pull his scarf securely over his face before he continued to look about the bar.

Avroville/Tavern
Round 0

Penelope spotted Peter following her to the bar. How nice! Protect her honor and all that. But she would get better results as a single lady. She didn’t mind the backup, though, if something happened. She caught Peter’s eye and gave him a playful wink, flirting with him. It would give him a reason to join the men around her if he wanted it, or just hang back and observe.

Peter was shocked when she initially winked at him. The idea of a inter work relationship sent his head spiraling in a thousand different directions. That was until it came crashing down into the realization that this was all an act for those around them.

The clerk gives Crowley an unamused look and sighed. "We're on the edge of the Wulflands, so naturally there are going to be some of the beasts in the area."

"However, the notion of them having an encampment is pure nonsense. They are nought put savage creatures that roam around in packs, though I'll concede that there may be an especially sizeable pack in the area." The clerk continued. "Though the idea of them being intelligent, thinking creatures is both a foolish belief and hearsay."

Tavern

The rough and ready types who'd been sat off to one side got to their feet and started making their way outside, barging their way through the crowd and shoving anyone was too slow in moving. Nobody dared raise a hand in anger against them, the crowd simply parted and fell silent as the men headed towards the door of the tavern.

“Excuse you, boys,” Penelope said, as the men pushed through her little crowd of admirers. She shook her head at the rudeness. “Someone should teach you some manners.”

Crowley's eyes light up at the mention of Wulflands and turns his attention more fully to the clerk. "So you have actually seen the Wulfers? What else can you tell me about your personal experiences?"

Crowley takes out a notebook, writtings in shorthand only he understands, and prepares to take down the clerk's dictation of personal experiences and actual events, should he have any.

The crowd round Penelope parted even further, leaving the lass standing like a lone sentinel in a barren plain. The assumed leader of the band of thugs looked Penelope before giving a stern reply. "Somebody should learn ta mind their own business....lass."

"Me and me lads are leaving see? If ye know wots good fer ya, ye'll go back ta playing a showgirl."

"Only photographs." Confessed the clerk. "I do not stray beyond the town's walls."

"There are one or two hunting outfits that operate out of the town, you'd be best speaking to them if you want to know more about the beasts."

Aleister seems crest-fallen but expected no less from the hot headed clerk. He turned and left the Adminstrative offices after getting the names of the outfits and whether they were currently in town or not.

Something tells him that he should check on the others from the team and he heads towards the bar.

Penelope smiled. “No showgirl here. You see any frilly dress? Just a pilot, looking for the low down after coming new in town,” she said. “But we’re both being rude. Neither one of us introduced ourselves. Penelope Lane.” She offered him her hand.

Peter felt his pistol in his holster before he removed his hand from it and tried to sneak up on the men as they were distracted by Penelope.

Stealth roll
1d10 = 8: 8
1d6 = 4: 4

Peter easily made his way up behind them and silently “hung about” ready to fire into them. Although he did keep in mind that he should shot downward into their legs to ensure that he didn’t hit Penelope

"Do I look like I give a damn lass?" The lead thug replied as he gave an irritated sigh. "Me business is not yers, not anyone's, but mine ya hear?"

"Some advice lass, don't dance with the Renard Noir." Add the lead thug. "Me and me lads are leaving. Now."

Note To Players
Those who have Tylander as a language will know that Renard Noir translates as 'Black Fox'.

And the thugs are very much leaving regardless of who is in the way.
