"I live in Mega-City- I don't know how many metahuman robberies you get in France or wherever, but that's pretty ROUTINE here!" he says, obviously still annoyed. The cop with you just shrugs as if to agree.Ken wrote: ↑Wed Dec 12, 2018 3:54 amle Petit Hercule
"Ah, there is something else wrong," Hercule says. He turns to the auction-boss, "Sir, how often do you acution off the items which are, as you say, thought to be magical items? Is there a correlation between when you have these, how you say, 'big ticket items' that may have magic and when the big metahuman robberies occur?" This of course is in a French accent, and most of the 'th' sounds sound more like 'z'.
"As for the Magical stuff- which nobody can legally prove works, by the way- yeah, you get the occasional robbery. These things ALWAYS happen. But most people would rather casually acquire the stuff by buying it. This much Atlantean crap is usually just bought by rich collectors who want some bawbles for bragging rights, though. I have no idea where they're planning on SELLING all of this junk, unless they just want a nicer-looking Villainous Lair or whatever."
"Looks like they grabbed money from the guests, too, though it's not like these auctions are usually paid off with CASH, so mostly it's just jewels and that kind of stuff".
He looks at the formerly-hidden shelf, annoyed. "They didn't even take ALL of it, though. Left some stuff behind for some reason. I couldn't tell you their game."
