Sunday lunch time and I'm in my sitting room, logged into Zoom on my laptop and ready to play 50 Fathoms.
After Manny Morkon had left, we decided to investigate Bruno Baltimus some more.
On the next day, we looked into matters some more. It was fairly common knowledge that Bruno likes his drinking, whoring and drugs.
I looked into matters a bit further and it turns out that Bruno's 'party needs' are generally all met by an individual called 'Edgar Davies'. We also learnt where and when to find him.
Meanwhile Shia met with again Morkon and agreed to his conditions. - Shis will 'eliminate' Bruno and Morkan will provide her with 'Versalis'. Shia concocted a plan to poison the drugs that Bruno will take during the gala's 'afterparty'. Shia then went shopping for rat poison.
The invitation is for one person only - plus entourage.
We had to wait a couple of days for our clothes to be prepared.
During this time, there was much discussion amongst our company. We did not agree on how we should deal with Bruno and how we should deal with the situation.
The day of the gala arrived.
The invitation says to arrive at 6 pm, so we decided to turn up at 7 pm.
The gala is taking place at Bruno's mansion. It is a large and expansive two storey building.
Shia - under the identity of 'Vivian Veohiti' is welcomed and announced to the gala. After Shia is led to the ballroom, she is introduced to Baron Bruno.
As part of Shia's retinue, we are also granted entry, however we are essentially ushered into a corner with all the other 'hanger ons' so that the true nobility could mingle and entertain themselves.
The ballroom is filled with music, but we realised there was no band playing? The music must have been coming from somewhere else?
We notice sa small group of young men at one side of the ballroom. These were Bruno's 'friends'.
One of them was paying particular attention to Win.
Meanwhile the rest of us began to mingle. Rufus and Rackham were both in the possession of some 'strong weed'. They both proceeded to generously share it around the party and particularly amongst Bruno's friends, thus ingratiating themselves.
Meanwhile, I made some excuses and left the ballroom to go exploring the mansion.
As the gala is drawing to a close, we are all given 'tokens'. This must be something to do with the 'afterparty'.
I play, I paint.
