Lorainna quickly recovered after her complete failure to disguise her surprise at seeing Jonah’s son in her living room. She composed herself.

“Well you certainly don’t have Jonah’s looks,” she said matter-of-factly. Harrison noted that she had been the first to mention his father’s name. This mean she either had incredible eye-sight (and had read his name on the floor), or had recognized his Harrison’s surname. He was pretty sure it was the latter, which meant, she did indeed know Jonah.

Lorainna yelled down the corridor, “Mia!” startling both the boys. She then turned back to them, “what’s the folder all about? And, who are you again?” she asked Michael.

“The folder is a copy of Jonah’s extensive CAP-sheet (OOC: again, CAP is nickname for CAPital city guard). It in turn led us to you. We would like some information,” Michael returned coolly.

“Mia!” Lorainna yelled again.

Harrison figured it must be the woman’s daughter who had poked her head out the door. He also sympathized with the girl’s lack of response in heeding the summons. This woman may be pretty, but she gave him the creeps.

Lorainna didn’t get an answer, so she pounded her high-heeled boot on the floor where she stood; knocking on the floor three times.

“Two gold coin for what kind of information?” Lorainna asked, she didn’t try to hide her suspicion of the two visitors.

“Where is Jonah Arbuckle for starters?” Michael asked.

“He was transferred to SouthHaven a week ago. Running a shrine of his very own I am told,” she replied.

“So he received a demotion then?”

“Apparently,” she said curtly.

Harrison heard a muted thump and felt the floor vibrate at the exact moment of the noise.

“Why?” Michael parried.

“You read the file, you tell me?”
“Alright, I will cut to the chase. Jonah handled elicit affairs for the Church here in ShantyTown, you were his liason with the sackers. But he also had many other contacts for other activities; gambling, fighting, drugs, you name it. But he got too close to someone or something and was chased out but for some reason I can’t put my finger on. Why wasn't he simply... quieted.” Michael’s speech seemed a bit reckless to Harrison, as if the teenage boy was revealing far too much.

Harrison then felt the same thump in the floor.

“Who are you again? How do you come by all this information?” Lorainna asked with a bit of anger.

“Who I am is of no concern. Who knows I am here and what will happen should anything occur to me or my little friend here is, however, your concern.” Michael replied. “ You are very involved with Jonah according to that CAP copy,” he added.

Out of Harrison’s view, he heard the door down the hall open. A tall but think and mousy girl with long brown hair stepped into the opening. She was covered in blotches of soot on her clothes, face, and hands. She looked sweaty, as if she had been working in a blacksmith shop for the past 8 hours.

“Yes Mommy?” she asked quietly.

“Go get my sticks (SafeHaven version of cigarettes) upstairs in my room,” Lorainna told her. There was little kindness in the tone of the request.

“Yes Mommy.”

The girl passed the heavy set woman who was mumbling over a hot stove and went upstairs.

(OOC: Another break in the narrative for any input you would like to give. If I have said anything above for Harrison that you don't like, please edit as you wish.)

We have to finish "A boy of the Cloth" so we can finish "Light's Hope Chapel" so we can start "Harrison Wakes to the Game".

In that order.

School runs from 09.15 to 05.15 each year. Anyone who turns "18" years old prior to 05.15 is assigned a post in the military.

(So if someone turns "18" on 05.16, they get to stay in school for another year).

Renee will step down as leader after graduation. Graduation for "seniors" is on the 15th day of the 5th month of each year. So she will be shipped off to the military on 05.15.2133. It is at this time the guild will recognize its new leader, Emma, and its new 2nd in command (lieutenant) Harrison.

The two boys could see Lorainna as she walked the final few steps into the kitchen. She was a tall and beautiful woman with long, shiny black hair. She was dressed in nothing more than a tight-fitting red silk housecoat with high-heeled leather boots. (Picture Jennifer Connelly)

The woman walked the short distance between the kitchen and the filth they sat upon with 8 or 9 hip-swaying steps.

“Well, well, well, what do we have here?” she said in a deep and lusty voice.

“Ma’am,” Michael began as he stood up from the littered couch to shake her hand.

The woman declined his offer with a polite wave of her hand, the same one that held two gold pieces. Behind her in the kitchen, the heavy set woman was moving a bunch of pans around in a noisy attempt to start dinner.

Michael sat back down and Lorainna leaned back on a wall. The sides of her house coat hugged her leg as she brought her knee up, her foot anchored to the wall. “So, Dee-dee tells me you two boys are paying this gold for some kind of information?”

“That’s right Ms. Prescott,” Michael replied politely.

“Who are you working for?” she asked.

“Him,” responded Michael with a thumb pointed at Harrison.

Lorainna chuckled a bit, but it didn’t sound genuine. “The young man is working for the toddler? To what end?”

Michael opened up the file on Jonah Arbuckle at dropped it on the floor. The stack of papers slid out of alignment but for the most part stayed in the folder. “Lorainna, allow me to introduce you to Harrison. Harrison Arbuckle.” Michael said meaningfully.

Lorainna’s mouth dropped to the floor.

(OOG: Giving you a chance to say, think or do anything during this awkward moment for Lorainna.)

Quote from: Johan

Dray, you can correct me if I'm wrong, but I don't think that we were aware of the younger kids' participation.

In 01.02.2133 - Temmit Wakes To The Game thread (page 3, the post by Johan, 4 posts down)we are introduced to the idea that young children are being brought to the games for some reason.

In the Game Session 4A - War Games thread (page 2, my last post), it is quickly covered that the children drove the machines, a fact that was played out at the table.

“You said exactly what I was thinking Harrison, that it couldn’t have been wolves that killed your mother in the night,” Michael said plainly. “So if that is the case, you and I must be cautious when we take whatever blackmail we find to your father. We need to insure our safety somehow before meeting with him, lest we meet some other silent fate.”

The sound of footsteps coming down the steps beyond the kitchen indicated their conversation was coming to an end.

“Agreed?” Michael asked.

Johan and Griznuq, tell me what day and what time you plan on getting together. I will sit in if the time slot allows.

Johan, I gave you my version of Temmit's player notes. Griznuq, did I have you Harrison's?

I just read your text above, you have a very good point. It would make sense that since you were watching him like a hawk, you wouldn’t stop to do so just for a toilet break. That being said, Shannon won’t know that you are currently watching Marcus from the toilet, so she will still be eager to go warn you of his exit.

I am thinking that perhaps for the moment we will stay with 3.5e until we are ready to make a seamless move. Especially considering Wildfire’s current lack of experience with the system, it wouldn’t be fair to him. So keep playing Temmit as his 3.5e enjoyable self.

That being said, Leslie’s invisibility doesn’t necessarily have to be a result of 4e transformation, but of something else she has attained (potion, ring, or cloak).

In regards to Temmit’s predicament:
    he doesn’t know what is happening and would most likely be anxious to return to Marcus watching in the Hall.
    *if Shannon is able to get outside before Temmit comes inside then he will indeed be free to go around the Hall and to the barn. He would expect a search party to leave the Hall and find him if he didn’t come back in though.
    *Temmit didn’t notice that anyone was stationed outside.

    Alright, here is the situation:

    FIRST: Read the recent posts (at least the last three I made) from “2133.01.02 – Game Session 4A – WarGames”, that will give you a better idea why I am listing everything below;

      *The Outhouses for the students are accessible through the main entrance.
      *The Outer-Rim Defense guards are letting the kids go to them a pair (one girl and one boy) at a time.
      *There currently is a line of five girls inside the hall. When the door is opened from a student returning, another student of the same sex is let out.
      *None of the kids are being allowed back to their tents, the participation in the celebration appears to be mandatory.
      *At the moment Shannon heard Leslie’s warning, Temmit was actually sitting in the Outhouse and losing track of time, probably caught in a conversation with Smokey as he pinches one off. What you do from this point Johan is under your control (though you know not of the situation as of yet).
      *The barn is to the east of the Hall, about 300 yards away.
      *The outhouses are to the west of the Hall, about 50 yards away.

    Michael looked at Harrison a moment, then looked down at his hand. He was quiet for a moment, then finally asked, "so if there were all those dogs around, how come you didn't wake up when your Mom was fighting wolves that night?"

    “Only a few moments child,” the Judge stated gently.

    Natasha took her hand at that moment and gave it a squeeze. “Be strong for them Miss Auvryndyr,” she said. The three entered the last check-in point before the prison hallways.

    (OOC: just giving you the one last opportunity before you see the two of them).

    Michael pressed on with the question, "How many dogs did the farm have? Did you have one?"

    [color=#00ff00](OOC: You probably remember that Harrison had the Saint Bernard named Gunthar, but your family also owned a half-dozen retired Outer-Rim Defense dogs. These dogs were posted in verious places around the farm to ward off wild dogs, wolves, and warn of the occasional Kahr'Thul should one ever sneak past the border patrol.)[/color]
