Dane: [GM] The sound of police sirens begins to howl through the air as you stand around. No doubt by now emergency services are on the way to put out the fire.
Joe: [OOC] Can we have a wanted level system, GTA-style? I want a quantifiable way to know when we've provoked enough attention to get the army to show up.
Soo: [Kali dVostog] Kali tucks the journal into her blouse and runs out into the street. "Fire! Fire!" she screams, looking panicked.
Ian: [Mari Shasho] Mari runs after Kali. "Seems like a good idea... FIRE!"
Kyle: [Bailey Hunt] Bailey doesn't so much run after Mari and Kali as he runs away from GR-210.
Dane: [GM] You all manage to evade police attention as you flee the scene, probably because that's a perfectly reasonable thing to do. With the setting being, at best 1890s in terms of forensics, it's not too hard to imagine you've just gotten away with mass murder, Ian.
Ian: [OOC] Why am I taking all the responsibility for this!?
Kyle: [OOC] Because you HAVE all the responsibility for this. You started the fire in the first place.
Ian: [OOC] Mari's a pyromancer, it's what they do. You know that' expression "when all you have is a hammer all problems start to look like nails"?. Well, it's like that but the hammer is the BURNING FURY OF THE FUCKING SUN.
Soo: [OOC] When you say it like that, it kind of implies you enjoy it. Anyhow, let's go home and do some reading.
Joe: [OOC] That's kind of a step-down in my opinion. We started the evening immolating hundreds of innocent people and now we're going home for some light reading.
Soo: [OOC] And tea with scones. Nothing caps off murder like scones.
Kyle: [OOC] It's kind of troubling that you have an opinion on cooling down after murder.
Ian: [OOC] Speaking of troubling, what happened to Danielle?
Dane: [GM] *sigh* I was hoping you'd forget she existed...
Dane: [Danielle] Danielle manages to regroup with you guys on your side of the street. "I had to discard the rifle into the river. I broke it into individual parts and scattered them over a several thousand square yard area."
Joe: [GR-210] GR vibrates with agitation. "Dammit woman, a gun that's claimed a life is inherently more powerful and accurate than one that hasn't! It gets a taste for blood. I demand you spank yourself when we get back home."
Soo: [OOC] I'm not entirely sure which part of that sentence disturbed me more.
Dane: [Danielle] Danielle nods bleakly. "As you wish..."
Kyle: [OOC] The fire is right there guys. We can just shove her in. Put an end to all of this.
Ian: [OOC] No Kyle! If we do that we'll be just as bad as him. Let's just cut ahead to back at the house.
Dane: [GM] You arrive back at Kali's townhouse. It's now around midnight.
Ian: [Mari Sasho] Mari cracks her back and walks for the stairs. "Is it alright if I go take a shower before we do anything else? I'm feeling dirty after that."
Joe: [GR-210] "The souls of the wrongfully dead do kind of leave a clingy film. Try exfoliating."
Soo: [Kali dVostog] Kali slumps onto her couch and pulls out the journal. "I think I'd rather read this now. I'll let you all know what I find."
Kyle: [Bailey Hunt] Bailey smirks. "Wha's that? Bailey, go drink yer'self stupid while I do all tha' work? Well, iffin' ya say so ma'am." Bailey wanders into the kitchen to look for a drink.
Soo: [Kali dVostog] "There's table wine on the counter!"
Dane: [GM] The journal doesn't seem to have any more clues than it did when you read it at the fire, but you do notice that the recurring religious symbolism is very evident.
Soo: [Kali dVostog] "So I'm thinking we should go find an expert on ancient religions" Kali says, thinking aloud.
Joe: [OOC] Who will then turn out to be evil, attack us, be killed by us and then a fire will happen?
Ian: [OOC] ...
Joe: [OOC] What? Just calling a trend when I see it.
