Episode 218
The Miscreants know who the next target that Corvus intends to grab and move to their Cryptid Concentration Camp. So they plot to get in there and stop Corvus from achieving their aim, and then use this to segue into the Prison Break plan.

Episode 217
With cryptids being grabbed by what might be a government body, the band of miscreants tries to work out what they intend to do about it. The White Council is far to busy, and smashing into the Shard to force the Lawyer to free them is likely not going to work. Given there are intelligent cryptids being held the miscreants are unwilling to let it slide and a plan takes form.

A Bad Plan

A terrible plan.

Can anyone say “Prison Break”?

Having found out that the Scrolls of the Sedefkar Simulacrum were not in the Topkapi Palace seemingly having been donated by Garaznet and then seemingly stolen by Selim Makryat.

Lost and confused they decide to engage in some Grave Rubbing in the hopes that Garaznet’s grave can give them some clues. With the back up plan of changing the vowel and engaging in Grave Robbing.

Of course this depends on if their Dice stop trying to kill them!

Randy may have blown up a boat to kill the Chupacabra, but it seems like that isn’t the end of the problem as a bunch of military guys and a lawyer turn up and start loading all of the cryptids (including the sentient ones) into large vans and whisking them away to… gods know where.

Anthea is unimpressed to be overruled, and everyone else is worried about the question of who is next.

So they decide to do something about it. Probably something risky and ill thought out.

Heading towards Constantinople the Investigators start to plan exactly what it is they need to do as they approach the literal end of the line. However, they are also stepping right into the belly of the beast as the Cult of the Skinless One must surely run rampant in the city.

Will they be left to research in peace. Or will an early grave in the Bosphorus come to call.

Episode 211
Firstly Mawdrigen and Sheba went to Georgia (the country not the state) and came back with tea that we reviewed.

But that is just a momentary distraction from the death and destruction that happens next. Trapped on the train with an angry Vampire willing to kill who knows how many people to secure the Sedefkar Simulacrum the Investigators are backed into a corner like never before. The horrors they have seen are eroding their sanity and their will.

Can they survive, can they rid themselves of the Vampire, and can they live with what they may have to do to triumph?

Chai Masala from Tea India is reviewed and Mawdrigen quite likes it (which is good as it is Sheba’s favourite).

The Investigators have finally got the whole of the Sedefkar Simulacrum, and although it is making them feel awful if they can just get to Constantinople and find the Scrolls of Sedefkar they may be able to destroy it. So they settle in for a nice relaxing time on the Orient Express.

Yeah

Right.

There is something on the train with them, and it seems to be interested with their cargo.

Absolutely.
