Elizabeth shot a look at the goblin. "That memory trick will be handy indeed." After the close call this morning, She was not up for another surprise attack. A couple of buttons is all it took to change her PURSE into a buckler.

She watched Iggy put his hand into the slot. It was probably a stupid idea. However, stupid ideas were often the exciting ones.

My mother is right. I will be dead before thirty. Elizabeth thought as she placed her hand into the slot.

Just as you are about to start talking a jeering voice behind you calls out "well, if it isn't his Lord high muckety muck, Sir Flapdoodle's bit of rough. Sally ain't gonna say nothing to a wannabe Peeler like you."
The speaker is a brutish looking orc you remember as Johnny Biggo, a local gang boss. Clustered around him are several orcs, a couple of humans and 3 vicious looking goblins, all trying to look menacing with varying degrees of success.
" When we finishes wiv you he won't need to pretend you iz the Jammiest Jam in London" sneers one of the goblins.
Hob Henderson
HP: 1; LP: 1; Condition: Normal

Hob chuckled, a sound like a rolling barrel full of gravel. He tipped his battered hat towards Fat Sally. "Won't be but a moment, then..."

Then he turned towards Johnny Biggo, and took one step forward, rolling up his shirt sleeves to reveal the strange tribal tattoos that wrapped his arms. " What say there, Johnny? Still blowing more hot air than a steam engine, ain't ya?" He shook his head sadly, glancing at the the goblin who had spoken. " Shouldn't talk so mean to someone what can toss you straight into the Thames from where I'm standin', ya know. Might hurt my feelings and all."

He took another step forward, straightening up just a bit; closer up, it would be obvious just how big he was- how thick his arms were, and how big those hob-nailed boots on his feet were. "Good ta see ya brought all you little friends along Johnny. Still afraid to walk these streets alone then, aren't ya? And with good reason..." Another step- he was dangerously close now, and they couldn't fail to notice his size. He cracked his knuckles loudly and loomed over the assembled crew, leaning forward so his face was practically within biting distance of the leader.

>OOC: Hob is going to use his Fearsome Presence (2 ranks), after closing to within 10 feet of Johnny. Anyone within 10 feet that can interact with him must make a DC 12 Will check or become shaken. Fail by 5, they flee (if they fail by 10, they panic, but I'm not sure that is possible, even if they are mooks).

>OOC 2: Sorry for the delay here. Next few weeks are going to be challenging, as they say- RL/work stress like crazy. I'll try to keep up as best I can, but ping me if you need a response.

For Eluzabeth and Iggy
There is a sensation almost exactly like a pin sticking into his finger then his hand is released.
The voice mutters "I suppose that is normal for one of those... Next."
The same happens to you as well Elizabeth. The voice mumbling apologies, "terribly sorry M'lady, most unusual, possibly even a first, so sorry, tradition and all doncherknow.."

Much to your surprise one of the walls moves back and opens up into one of the strangest rooms you have been in. It is like a hunting lodge, a gentlemen's club, and possibly a retirement home blended into one. Weapons and stuffed trophies adorn the walls. There are a collection of leather, worn, slightly overstuffed chairs currently occupied by some leathery, worn slightly overstuffed gentlemen ranging in ages from 40's to elderly. One of whom is asleep with his teeth in a glass of port beside him.
There is a slightly mad old gentleman behind you. He salutes the room, "gatekeeper reporting, they have passed the tests."

One of the others, a lean faced man in his forties invites you to sit down. "We don't get many visitors here. Do make yourself comfortable. We will bring some refreshments in. Now how can we help you?"
ooc- feel free to make any rolls you like to give you more information.

For Hob

Johnny Biggo
Will: 1d20+4 14

Johnny doesn't seem too impressed, especially with his boys behind him. "You left remember... Just so you could do some french style with Lord Goldbuttons. We don't want you here and we don't want nuffing to do with any business you bringing here. Sling yer 'ook."
The others are spreading out around you. There seems to be less goblins than you remember.

Iggy extracts his mechanical arm then looks at the finger where the pin punctured it. Seeing it unharmed he dismissed the occurrence.

He waits for Elizabeth to do the arm thing.

Elizabeth removed her hand from the device. She still wasn't sure about the intentions of the people in front of her. They were supposed to have information, but is that because they are criminals or because they are in Her Majesties Service, or even worse... freelancers. She tried to give a look around to ascertain their loyalties.

[OOC: She is looking for insignias, symbols and the like. Anything that guarantees these people are alright to disclose information to. Perception 16]

The stuffed heads on the walls are hideous. Some of them are human with curiously vulpine features, a lot of them are rats, and a few are obviously a metamorphosis captured between rat and human. The pictures on the walls are terriers at ratfighting pits and rat hunts. There are several elderly terriers scattered around the room, watching you through milky eyes. There are several stuffed examples with plaques under them. There are also weapons and pictures from other countries. Carved into the mantel above the fireplace is the title "The royal order of ratcatchers".

In a show of either extreme bravery, goblin fool-curiosity, or confident mechanation Iggy sticks his mechanical hand into the slot.
It was never a 'trick'; this was my original post.

Assuming the old guy makes some tisk of disapproval Iggy switches to his biological arm and receives the prick/blood test.

"Well, we are tracking down pirates, or at least a thieving group not above piracy on the open seas. They contain wielders of the arcane as well as rat humanoid creatures. Possibly Dutch or having ties in that area." Iggy says, matter of factly.

@Iggy, apologies. I'll wait for Elizabeth before I carry on.
