Update: sorry to go "off piste" so early but that is too tempting a lead to not follow up!

My dear Mei, we're on a train, staffed by some of the world's most attentive waiters and other staff. I'm absolutely sure that nothing could possibly go wrong on our trip whatsoever! xoxo Milly

Usually splitting the party in Cthulhu games isn't a great idea (even worse is going off on your own), but at this stage when we're just gathering information, it can be a valid tactic. At least you're in a very public area, so unlikely to suddenly get ripped apart by a squamous yet somehow also rugose, tentacle-laden alien monstrosity that shouldn't be. Unlikely, not impossible, though.

I don't care. Do what you like. I ran four splinters last chapter. No big deal.


Mitsu, have Mei make an APP roll, please.

Oh yes, I am going to use every damn skill and stat in this game.

OK I got 90 vs APP 60. Not sue if that is good or we are supposed to be rolling low… but if it means a tentacle monster suddenly attacks, I guess that will be quite dramatic!!

EDIT: Having slept on it I’ve decided to rewrite that last post.

I've updated to fix the typo and separated out Henrietta. My apologies.

I'm sorry Bluejack. I make typos all the time and realised this morning it was not right to use one that way. I have rewritten the post.

No need to be sorry. This is fun and a hobby. I’m sorry easy-going.

The first step would seem to be the Bibliotheque Nationale as indicated by the dead research librarian. They had no contact there, nor a letter of introduction. Entry would take some doing.
Curiouser can curiouser!

Mei has two possible options to offer here: She can try and talk in - with archaeological knowledge and a fair bit of charm. But I might not be the best candidate for that, amongst the team.

Or, we can wait for nightfall and Mei can try and sneak in, find a door, then let the others in. Though I feel like we probably need to speak to someone inside.

What do you all think?

Milly is an antiquarian bookseller - is there any chance he could get in with his list of books for sale, that the library might be interested n pursuing?

Absolutely!! If you all let me know where you want to go first (hotel, library, etc.) I can write it up for you. You all really have a ton of leads.

Hi everyone, so upon looking up all your character sheets I see none of us actually speak French (not even Milly!). I see Milly does have Latin - which may help with the texts.

How to handle this?

My feeling is that Mei will be able to guess as much as me (Mitsy) because she already speaks English as a second language (like me) and the similarities of some words in French make some comprehension possible - if not the nuance of the grammar.

So I guess we all have to hope Remi cooperates with Milly's request to switch to English!!

Vangeim speaks English as well. Happy to incorporate back stories. Throw the hint and I will pick up on it.
