Babes in London: Act Three, Scene 2A (Part 2: Follow-up LN7—Ending the Conversation & Notes)




ONCE THE PCS HAVE TOLD ALL THEY’RE GOING TO TELL:

There is a moment of silence as Maria considers what you have told her. Finally, she leans forward and says: “Okay, up until now you’ve been on a kind of probation, but now we need you to find these girls and we need you to find them fast. And since they don’t know who you are – or who we are – there are a couple of things you really ought to know. About a year ago, a group of paedophiles tried a snatch on the pair in that park where you first met them. They failed. Two grown-ups from a particularly nasty background and they were found bailed up in the toilet block, petrified of two little girls. You need to be particularly careful when dealing with the pair; don’t frighten them and don’t make them feel the need to defend themselves. All those weird things that have been happening lately aren’t just rumour; some of them are real – and these two little girls, whether they realize it or not, are a part of it. We think there are other elements, incredibly nasty elements, of that weirdness after them, and we’d like to find them first. We think they can help us, once they’ve grown up, but we don’t think they’re going to get to grow up if we don’t help them first. And that includes protecting their family. You should also know that we think the girls are part of a group of about five children, but they’re the only two we’ve managed to identify, so if you find any more children that they seem to be friends with, bring them all in. And be careful. Those of us who can see such things have had visions. Something is after these kids and it isn’t very nice.”

IF THE PCS HAVE TOLD MARIA THAT THEY ARE REINCARNATED DRAGONS:

Add this section if the PCs have told Maria they are reincarnated dragons, and she believes them:

She takes a breath and nods as though coming to a decision: “You’re dragons, so you say.” She waves down your protest. “I believe you. And because you are what you are I am authorized to tell you that these girls are dragons too. We can’t tell what brood, but we think there are about five of them, and we don’t think they’ve found each other yet. That’s our job – one we may also need your help with, once we get the girls back and safe. As I said, something big is after them and you need to get to them first.”

NOTES ON THE DISCUSSION:

Mark will assure the PCs that his company has every intention of protecting the children’s families. He won’t reveal anything more of LN7 except that they’re responsible for protecting people from the ‘worst kinds of weirdness that’s happening’. He won’t put the PCs on the pay roll. He will, if asked, tell the PCs of other organizations who know of the ‘weirdness’ and will mention the Gehenna Consortium specifically, warning the PCs of his suspicions that the Consortium only wishes to utilize the weirdness for its own profit and that it doesn’t care for the safety of the community at large, which is the focus of his company. He says that the PCs shouldn’t have any dealings with the Consortium and that, if they do have any current dealings with them, LN7 will overlook it, but only if the PCs cease these dealings now. If the PCs continue to deal with the Consortium, he warns them LN7 will no longer be able to have any contact with them, and withdraws any help or privileges he has so far extended.

NOTE: This adventure is not sanctioned in any way, shape or form by Fantasy Flight. It is not an official product, and I am in no way affiliated with them or they with me. There is no relationship between us. This adventure is mine, for fun, and for you, because some of you asked me to finish it.

Also, if you like this adventure and want to play it, please go buy the official rulebooks from somewhere where the original creators and publisher of the setting will be paid. I got mine from a Melbourne game store, but I’ve found PDF versions of the Player's Handbook and the Gamemaster's Handbook are now available from DriveThruFiction. If you enjoy their world, this is the best way to thank them.
