Weapons Inspection

Kogame asks Tisiphone and Alecto to inspect some confiscated weaponry

[7/4/2011 10:40:13 PM] DM: But first, Kogame would ask you to accompany her on some inspections of goods that have been seized from black market weapons trading.
[7/4/2011 10:40:36 PM] Tisiphone: cool ;)
[7/4/2011 10:41:00 PM] DM: (She’d also like to …. tinker with you…roflmfao)
[7/4/2011 10:41:04 PM] Tisiphone: “…”
[7/4/2011 10:41:10 PM] DM: (hahaha jks jks )
[7/4/2011 10:41:21 PM] Tisiphone: really ;)
[7/4/2011 10:41:22 PM] Tisiphone: XD
[7/4/2011 10:41:46 PM] Tisiphone: “What do you think you’ll find with the weapons, Kogame?”
[7/4/2011 10:47:48 PM] DM: Giving you an indulgent look, “I have a feeling there will be many….attempts to emulate the deviant blades”
[7/4/2011 10:49:12 PM] Tisiphone: "Hmmm. Were these also taken from Grimoire Heart?
[7/4/2011 10:54:23 PM] DM: “No. That is the most disturbing part of our seizures. A good portion of the goods came from inidividual ‘collectors’ who had been looked up and convinced to sell their goods”
[7/4/2011 10:57:50 PM] Tisiphone: Tisiphone frowns, exchanging glances with Alecto. “Do you think they have been recently created…? …Actually, I guess we should just go take a look.”
[7/4/2011 10:58:29 PM] DM: “As far as our weapon smiths can discern, some of these are quite old, some are more recent creations”
[7/4/2011 10:59:25 PM] Tisiphone: The twins nod soberly.
[7/4/2011 11:01:00 PM] DM: “It is also concerning that now of all times, that people are being coaxed into selling these Deviant Blade replicas”
[7/4/2011 11:02:43 PM] Tisiphone: Tisiphone tilts her head. “You think someone is collecting them now en masse?”
[7/4/2011 11:04:11 PM] DM: “Potentially yes. For use or study I have no idea, but it is too much of a coincedence for it to happen now.”
[7/4/2011 11:07:45 PM] Tisiphone: “When we were in the Grimoire Heart headquarters, we noticed there seemed to be a pretty busy market down there…”
[7/4/2011 11:10:45 PM] DM: “That doesn’t surprise me. but knowing Grimoire Heart, they wouldn’t sell their precious research on the black market”
[7/4/2011 11:13:00 PM] Tisiphone: “Perhaps they were buying…? Or… did the people you take the blades from know they were replicas?”
[7/4/2011 11:13:26 PM] DM: “I’m sure there would have been alot of people convinced of their own blades authenticity”
[7/4/2011 11:20:51 PM] Tisiphone: “Well, we’ll gladly take a look at these weapons…” Tisiphone frowns. “Perhaps one of them will be real… though… those who pursuaded the collectors to sell would have had to pay a fortune surely to get one to part with a supposed deviant blade.”
[7/4/2011 11:21:09 PM] Tisiphone: “…or persuaded them by other means, I suppose.”
[7/4/2011 11:21:53 PM] DM: Kogame shurgs, “Either way, the assortment of weapons and whatnot are all sitting in a cargo ship under our care.”
[7/4/2011 11:23:01 PM] Tisiphone: The twins nod. “Is it far?”
[7/4/2011 11:23:36 PM] DM: “Not too far at all.”
[7/4/2011 11:24:42 PM] Tisiphone: “Shall we go then?”
[7/4/2011 11:24:48 PM] Tisiphone: XD
[7/4/2011 11:25:55 PM] DM: Kogame gives you a winning smile, “Of course, I was hoping you’d have the time to accompany me now in fact.” She ushers you towards her own personal carriage.
[7/4/2011 11:27:58 PM] Tisiphone: “Of course.” Tisiphone peeks curiously at the carriage as they get in.
[7/4/2011 11:30:27 PM] DM: As the three of you travel along and you peek out every now and then, you head towards what seems to be the Military Docks where you pass through several check points as guards salute the carriage.
[7/4/2011 11:31:48 PM] Tisiphone: (Is the carriage shiny? XD)
[7/4/2011 11:32:26 PM] DM: (Not thaaat shiny)
[7/4/2011 11:32:30 PM] Tisiphone: (hahaha)
[7/4/2011 11:32:44 PM] Tisiphone: (I guess she’s not a corrupt public servant lol)
[7/4/2011 11:35:04 PM] DM: (If you did streetwise checks and asked around in Official places, people may not like Kogame, but they respect her for her professionalism)
[7/4/2011 11:35:26 PM] Tisiphone: Tisiphone and Alecto peer out the window, watching all the security with interest. “Do you think those you confiscated the items from will try to get them back?”
[7/4/2011 11:35:34 PM] Tisiphone: (haha why don’t they like her?)
[7/4/2011 11:39:01 PM] DM: (It would seem too many find her too stuffy / beurocratic / arragant even)
[7/4/2011 11:39:10 PM] DM: “I highly doubt it”
[7/4/2011 11:40:10 PM] Tisiphone: “How did you find them in the first place?”
[7/4/2011 11:41:02 PM] DM: Our operatives in the Black Market came across these weapon deals and let us know so we ordered a retrieval mission to be carried out. The rest is history."
[7/4/2011 11:43:14 PM] Tisiphone: Alecto: / I suppose you’ve questioned the… merchants… already. /
[7/4/2011 11:43:58 PM] DM: (Is she speaking into Kogame’s mind?)
[7/4/2011 11:45:18 PM] Tisiphone: yeah
[7/4/2011 11:45:19 PM] Tisiphone: :)
[7/4/2011 11:46:01 PM] DM: / Some were detained for questioning, yes. /
[7/4/2011 11:47:33 PM] Tisiphone: / Did they know anything interesting? /
[7/4/2011 11:48:52 PM] DM: / The only thing worth noting was that they had already made several transactions recently /
[7/4/2011 11:49:12 PM] Tisiphone: / To who? /
[7/4/2011 11:51:21 PM] DM: / Some where actually to authorised Government Agents that I had not been previously aware of who were carrying out similar operations to what I am doing. Some were, as you correctly guessed, were being bought by Grimmoire Heart, but most surprising of all, was that a good portion of goods were being bought by dead people, and by dead people I mean orders were being made by inidividuals who were previously known / thought to be dead. /
[7/4/2011 11:55:04 PM] Tisiphone: / How recently dead? /
[7/4/2011 11:55:58 PM] DM: / Some where supposedly dead for 3-10 years /
[7/4/2011 11:56:30 PM] DM: (I can’t exactly remember, but did you ask Kogame before if she knew Professor Friedrich?)
[7/4/2011 11:56:59 PM] Tisiphone: (yeah)
[7/4/2011 11:58:16 PM] DM: / One name that might be of particular note to you would be one Professor Friedrich Mohs – he was assumed dead several years ago when he left the academic circles to become a recluse. His last known place of recidence was subject to an unfortunate house fire and it was assumed that had passed away /
[12:00:03 AM] Tisiphone: Alecto raises her eyebrows as Tisiphone shoots a quick glance towards her wrist. / …Interesting… /
[12:00:49 AM] Tisiphone: / How about the others? /
[12:02:00 AM] DM: / Most of the other names ended up being aliases or Organisation Fronts /
[12:02:48 AM] DM: / Friedrich Mohs is the only name that meant anything to me due to your mentioning of him before /
[12:05:20 AM] Tisiphone: / Just seems odd that suddenly there are a whole lot of people using the names of dead people to buy deviant blades. Surely they must all be linked somehow. /
[12:06:37 AM] DM: / Most likely, but as to who is behind it all, we do not currently know /
[12:07:45 AM] Tisiphone: / Also… why would Grimoire Heart AND Friedrich be purchasing deviant blades separately when Friedrich was working for Grimoire Heart? /
[12:08:27 AM] Tisiphone: (also… http://www.imdb.com/list/d021y77Jogk/ lol)
[12:14:10 AM] DM: Kogame shrugs / Perhaps this Friedrich wanted to do his own side research /
[12:15:55 AM] Tisiphone: Tisiphone fingers a bead on her wrist. / Perhaps… that would probably mean he had a lab somewhere else. /
[12:17:17 AM] Tisiphone: (sorry, am I grilling kogame too hard? XD)
[12:17:27 AM] DM: (no rofl)
[12:17:34 AM] Tisiphone: (hahahaha)
[12:18:24 AM] DM: / Maybe / Kogame gives you a piercing stare / Perhaps if you were to fill me in with whatever extra tid bits of information you’re aware of I could give you more concise answers /
[12:24:48 AM] Tisiphone: Tisiphone holds Kogame’s gaze, though a slight, uneasy flush infuses her cheeks. / We have told you everything we know of his life. / (assuming Tisiphone told her about those papers of his she found at the university) / And should we discover anything more, we will tell you. He is of great interest to us. /
[12:25:11 AM] DM: (YOu havent told Kogame about trapping his soul right?)
[12:25:16 AM] Tisiphone: (hahaha)
[12:25:41 AM] Tisiphone: (yeah… well, she trapped it spontaneously and she’s got vague ethical concerns over it now lol)
[12:26:10 AM] Tisiphone: (don’t think she’s even told sirello :P)
[12:26:17 AM] DM: (Give us a bluff check !!!! )
[12:26:21 AM] Tisiphone: lol
[12:27:01 AM] Tisiphone: (Well, she’s not lying lol. But yeah, she is evading, I guess… hahahaahahaha rolled a 2. total 9)
[12:27:03 AM] Tisiphone: (LOL)
[12:27:14 AM] Tisiphone: (FAIL IPLAY4e)
[12:28:05 AM] DM: 9
[12:28:07 AM] DM: are you serious?
[12:34:47 AM] Tisiphone: (I rolled a 2 :P)
[12:35:13 AM] DM: Leaning closer to you, Kogame distractedly brushes some flower pollen that has managed to entangle itself in your hair fringe. She murmurs to you “I had hoped that we could build a healthy relationship based on mutual trust Tisiphone, it would hurt me so to find out that you were actively trying to hide information from me after all, I have been very open and honest with you”
[12:38:12 AM] Tisiphone: ( :P )
[12:48:52 AM] DM: lol :P
[12:50:07 AM] Tisiphone: Alecto places an arm protectively in front of her sister, teeth bared as Tisiphone shies away from Kogame’s hand. Alecto’s mindvoice is cold / What we discover of Friedrich’s past and his research, we have and shall share with you. Suffice to say that we have a source on Friedrich that may be more productive as we know better what questions to ask. But as we do not ask you to reveal all of your methods and secrets, neither should you expect us to reveal all of ours. /
[12:51:24 AM] Tisiphone: Tisiphone adds more gently, / We do not try to deceive you, Kogame, but… it is a difficult matter. /
[1:00:39 AM] DM: Kogame absentmindedly glances out the window as she leans back then after several seconds looks intently at the both of you. “I didn’t mean to offend, it’s just that these days it is painfully hard to be able to trust those you work with and due to my increased work load recently it has put a strain on my own resources, I hope you can forgive me for my rudeness.”
[1:07:05 AM] Tisiphone: Tisiphone nods. “We understand. And I am sorry also. We wish to discover the truth behind what is happening as much as you do.”
