Research - 5
3d6 <= 10
1 + 6 + 1 = 8 ... success
Ok, if that doesn't get me anything, I'll try asking around the headquarters if anyone's knows anything.

And Vassarious will check the reference materials for directions to locate the senate and mist back out to escape the complex and head that way.

There is a very old former preexist who lives about an hour's drive outside of Lithus City. His name is Hyrum.

Vassarious makes it out and to the senate itself, which is quite close nearby. The senate won't meet for two more days, but the building is busy none-the-less with various officials and other people who seem to be quite pleased with themselves.


Who will be be seeking out?

Well I don't imagine I can come up with much of a reason to go that far away from HQ, especially with a guard schedule, so I guess I'll be backburnering it for now.

Vassarious searches for the offices of the governor of Monstri, Moratus Ingelni.

Its closed today, but will be open tomorrow.

Vassarious uses a bit of Tradecraft and comes up with an imperial identity for travelling the capital. Do the people seem to carry papers or identification they might need to make arrangements for?

TL 7 identification is widespread, yes. Important people also tend to have electronic identities, and you'll need a bit to set those up as well. How complete of an identity do you want to set up?

Vassarious has the skills to set up the identity, but it will take a day or two. Roll tradecraft to get the right contacts, raw materials, and so forth.

So this makes three long tasks?
1) Memetic persuasion of Rubrum
2) Investigating whether there are any leaks in HQ
3) Inquire about the deposed priests
Halcyone isn't quite sure about leaks at headquarters when Rubrum starts talking about getting information from the front near the Sabuleum gate. she has eleminated a good three quarters of the officers from her "most suspicious" list, but has been focusing on getting Rubrum near the caverns.

He makes one last visit to the hospital to visit Alexa (the hospital with the man who says he saw the emperor). After that he'll travel with a unit of fresh recruits down to the Sabuleum gate.


Will Halcyone be visiting the deposed priest before they go?

Well, I guess unless I go AWOL I'm sure I'll be able to make it back to pick up where I left off.

I don't think I can get leave through proper channels to do this; could I persuade Thelo to cover for me and/or drive me out while Rubrum's sleeping or something?

You have a few off-duty moments, yes... What will you tell Thelo when you ask him to drive you out there?
