Babes in London: Act Two, Scene Four (Leyila’s House, Part 8: Setite Attack—Aftermath)


If the PCs win the battle with the Setite assassins and manage to rescue Leyila’s parents, they are able to find the three (still breathing) constables and can attempt to bring DI Mullins back to consciousness before his back-up arrives. Otherwise they have a lot of explaining to do. Play out the scene where PCs decide what to do. If the PCs show any sign of leaving, the Andrews beg them to stay.
Mrs Andrews says she will make another pot of tea, before realizing the pot is smashed and bursting into tears. However, she quickly pulls herself back together and apologizing for being ‘such a wet blanket’.
Mr Andrews offers to square things up with the police when they arrive and asks for help with the officers. If pressed, he admits he doesn’t think they can ‘cope’ with another attack.
DI Mullins, if he can be brought round, asks them to stay and make their statements. He says they should at least give the police time to recognize their allies, and he makes a call to get the back-up to come in more calmly.
By the end of this section, PCs should be established as being ‘helpful’ to the police and the Andrews will be heading back to the station so they can be protected. Once all the loose ends are settled, read or paraphrase the following:

With the door the Andrews house being firmly locked behind you, you realize what’s probably happened to Anika’s parents. The only problem is that you can’t work out what the assassins would want with them. There’s something you feel you should remember about assassins, and children, and children’s parents, but, for the moment, it escapes you. In the meantime, your mind buzzes with the things you must do.

If PCs have already been to Anika’s house, add the following:

—and the artist in Cambden is only one of the items on your list. Finding out about the symbol on the disk is another. Overlaying it all is the need to act. The children must be found and found quickly. What are you going to do next?

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.
