I'm fine. As long as the pain pills are kicked in. ;P The hard part is going to be in a few days when I satart feeling better, I have to remember NOT to do ANYthing at work. For 6 weeks. :(

Danny snorts a laugh at Tangris' outburst.

"Sorry. Wrong pipe." He says, not even trying to hide his smile.

"I appreciate all the concern. Truly. But I don't think it will come to having to actually fight. No one wants to mess with me." He says with a cocky attitude and smirk.

"I mean seriously. Who wants to mess with a guy who can literally TALK you to death?" He grins.

"Now, for the really hard part. Figuring out WHY this rep is REALLY here. I mean we know the obvious. And I think we're onto the less obvious reasons. But think of the fae, and vamps, as chess players. If your only thinking three moves ahead, your about 5 moves behind a professional. Which puts us about 8 moves behind THESE guys. I figure they're up to something else. Maybe small, maybe big, but something." He muses.

Then he grins again. "Fortunately, I'm good at thinking quick on my feet."

"Overconfidence gets people killed," Sal says heavily into the silence, "But this is your game." She squirms uncomfortably in her chair.


Changling Spellsinger Physical: [] [] [] Mental: [X] [] [] [] Social: [] [] [] [] FP:10

Danny clears his throat, a trifle nervously. But still smiles at Sal.

"That, is true. But when dealing with the Fae, any lack of confidence can get you killed even quicker." He points out soberly. Then he grins broadly again.

"Besides, it's only OVERconfidence if it's not true!" He smirks, his usual attitude returned in full.

"Oh, yeah, I SHOULD probably warn you guys. 'They' HATE being called 'Fae'. Like, intensely. Really, REALLY intensely. The few, nicest ones will take it a personal insult. The rest, which is most of them, will take it as a personal invitation to do their worst." He says seriously.

"Um, 'Faerie' is acceptable, as a last resort. Seelie and Unseelie, or Summer and Winter, respectively, is the correct generic reference. And for heaven's sake, DON'T confuse the two! They all prefer 'Sidhe' I've found. Those that don't usually prefer preferred being called by their title, or something like 'Ohg0dpleasedon'tkillme', or they don't take time to talk at all." Danny explains as if giving a book report.

"Just,... thought you should probably know."

"How about if there's any trouble, if you could get through to me - then I could just have the blues & two's sirens on. That'd spook them? Especially if there's a break-in nearby, or a bomb threat." Laura suggests.

Kenneth says, "It would spook them, indeed... though we'd best be sure it cannae be tracked back tae us tae easily, ye ken?"


Changling Spellsinger Physical: [] [] [] Mental: [X] [] [] [] Social: [] [] [] [] FP:10

Danny's brow furrows in thought.

It looks painful.

He drums his fingers on the table. "We need to get a look at the meeting place. A good inspection. Early. BEFORE the meeting. If possible." He says suddenly.

"You remember when we were spotting the place earlier? They were setting up a lot of stuff. I 'm no expert on outside events, but I know theater. They were setting up a LOT of stuff. I can't help but wonder, if some of it wasn't for the benefit of the attendees?" He offers, looking around for support.

"I don't know why, it's just a hunch really. But what if one of the attendees were setting up a nasty surprise for the others? What better way than to include it in the event equipment setup? Instead of bringing it into the event themselves?"

"I know i'm just being suspicious," He continues rambling, "But something about it just rubbed me wrong. The question is, why would someone risk breaking the rules of guest/host? I don't think even a vamp would risk ticking off the Fae by breaking,..." Danny's eyes go wider, then narrow,...

"Unless,... wait, let me wrap my head around this thought,..."

Danny thinks furiously for a moment, ignoring any comments about how much that must hurt.

"What if, If,... Queen GreenScream set up something? She would be the last suspect, as she is the guest of honor for the meeting. SO she sets up, something, and not only gets away with it, but manages to blame another party at the meeting for it?"

"Oh, OH! It's too perfect! It's Sidhe-perfect! The whole thing is a set up! It has to be! Green Queen isn't coming for the meeting, it's just a convenient cover, She has something else planned!"

Danny is in full conspiracy-mode now, and is gaining speed.

"You don't risk your one, healthy person for a possible cure. You bring the cure to where the problem is. The only reason to go to your enemies is, to bring THEM something!"

"To find a cure, you have to understand the disease. You manipulate it to create a cure. What if they found a way to manipulate it,... and affect the OTHER vamps?"

"Queenie isn't here to pick up a cure,... She's here to remove the competition!"

DUH DUH DUNNNN!!!!

Morien frowns speculatively into the tabletop, even the mug of coffee forgotten in her hand. "If you're right, our job just got a lot easier. We wouldn't have to engineer anything except the truth turning up at an inconvenient time." She doesn't bother looking up - the map of possibilities spreading out in her mind is far more important. "Let's check it out right after lunch."

"Heck, Instead of being trouble makers, We get to be the 'heroes'." Danny grins.

"Course, then there's the whole moral dilemma thing. Do we really WANT to save these monsters? Etc. OF course then you have the 'better the devil you know' option,..." Danny sips his coffee.

"Sometimes, being a good guy is SUCH a pain,..." He mutters.

"I say we dust off and nuke it from orbit," Sal grumps.

"It's the only way to be sure..."

"Captain! I recommend that we separate the saucer section and film the rest of the episode from the battle bridge!" Danny declares in his best Klingon accent, not to be outdone.

Kenneth shakes his head, "If ye expect me tae tell ye it cannae take much more, I'll burn ye all bald."

He then looks at Danny and says with a wicked smile, "While I cannae say whether or nae ye have the right ay it, lad.... but it certainly sounds like something that could be true... and we could, like as nae, lead folks tae discovering our truth, and react accordingly."


Changling Spellsinger Physical: [] [] [] Mental: [X] [] [] [] Social: [] [] [] [] FP:10

Danny grins at Kenneth.

"Well, true or not, it SOUNDS scary enough to be true. And as a good little bodyguard it is my duty to make sure my charge is completely protected from any,... 'incidents', accidental or otherwise."

"I think if I go through channels, explain that a simple walkthrough of the venue by myself and a couple of 'security experts' will put our minds at ease,... we should be ok. After all, it's not like the vamps get all insulted like a fae would by hinting that their security might be inadequate. Heck, the undead get a kick out of it." Danny grins.

"And to be honest, I don't expect to find anything." He continues.

"The trick will be figuring out what they added AFTER the inspection, and finding it before the grand finale. THAT'S the real trick." He smiles.

Sorry, been busy, healing, bomb scare on campus yesterday and opening night tonight. I'll try to keep up. :)


Evil GM

"Call up the council and explain we'd need to inspect the venue? Or bluff the contractors - posing as councilmen.... I suppose that's probable." Laura says making certain she gets the plan, whilst using her phone to find the relevant numbers.

So I'll need a Deception, or Contacts or Rapport roll. Maybe Resources, to try and book an appointment with the contractors - for today (the day of the deadline).

Kenneth nods, then says, "Ay course, worst case, Danny's an emissary. I imagine he could, acting on a tip, request a search that would be overseen by his people... Though it might entail some loss ay face... until something be found, ye ken."

He quickly adds, "...Though I still think that should be a last resort.."


Changling Spellsinger Physical: [] [] [] Mental: [X] [] [] [] Social: [] [] [] [] FP:10

"Last resort. Aye please." Danny chirps with a slight brogue. He shudders lightly, presumably at the thought of CAUSING an incident in the Courts.

"But getting in to do a quick inspection? With a contractor? No problem! I once swiped a fry guy statue from a McDonalds drive through. While it was open. With the managers blessing." Danny winks.

"It's all in the attitude." He says breezily.

One Deception coming up! :)

4d3 - 8 + 5 ⇒ (3, 2, 1, 3) - 8 + 5 = 6


Evil GM

After phoning the workmans' office, he gets put through on a direct line to the foreman/principal contractor on site. "Eyup Broth'. Office said thee wants to come around ont' site and have a butchers. You an inspector or summat?" He says in a very broad Yorkshire accent, his tone is quite amenable but concerned that this might cost him some money in retention.
