The Building with the Gargoyles

From Talk:Necrogenesis

GM REPLY

On Monday, a rest and then some portal-hopping via Ciel leads you into the heart of Manhattan. The city is clearly suffering from a lack of constant upkeep. Signs of flooding are everywhere, most of the buildings have been thoroughly looted, and several landmark buildings from your version of New York are missing, having simply never been built.

There are sections, though, that are well-kept and even well-secured. A fly-by reveals several small areas that look like claimed territory, complete with growing gardens.

The northern section of the Financial District is alight with electricity and activity. Buildings there have been turned into places of pleasure, brothels and casinos and bars, pit fights of every kind, drug dens and markets.

At its center is City Hall and the nearby Woolworth building. The small park in front of City Hall has been converted to an auctioneer's block and a handful of holding pens crowded with slaves and surrounded by watchtowers.

It looks like this: https://docs.google.com/drawings/d/1o_TTf7lvgsmgJwxu__OuZQWSuNSp7aEjgK3aS6R188U/edit?usp=sharing

I may have missed something on chan when I missed Friday's scene but what supplies do we actually have? Body armor, stunners, and general camping/survival type kits?

You can have whatever you want to have as long as it is not particularly unusual. IE, guns are okay, rocket launchers are not.

Recon:

  • How many guards are manning each tower? What are the entrances (windows and doors) to the towers? How are they visibly armed?
  • How many guards are at the pens?
  • How many guards are at the auction block? (Is there an active auction?)
  • How many people are in each pen approximately? What is their state?

  • How many guards are manning each tower? What are the entrances (windows and doors) to the towers? How are they visibly armed?

Two guards per tower. They are wooden towers that are open at the top, with a ladder up, sort of like this: https://s-media-cache-ak0.pinimg.com/originals/4e/ba/af/4ebaaf314bdd70429f37d5d43e456592.jpg - more about visibility than protection.


  • How many guards are at the pens?

Shifting numbers, but it looks like each pen has at least two guards on it, as well as more that move through the crowds checking out the wares.

  • How many guards are at the auction block? (Is there an active auction?)

Currently none. There is no auction during recon, but you hear there's one set for tonight.

  • How many people are in each pen approximately? What is their state?

The pens are different sizes, but people are packed tight. Not quite mosh-pit tight, but tight. We're talking 50-75 people per pen. Their state is not good. A lot of minor injuries from being jostled and rough transportation. Some outright bruises and bloodied noses and black eyes. Occasionally something worse. Few look very well fed, and most look as if they haven't bathed in weeks. Or months.

We try to send out flyers/sneakers in for some recon. (Probably mostly Ciel, Richard, and William.) We want to get a closer look at the slave pens, guard towers, and market.

  • Can we get a better view of the slave pens? Maybe general estimation of numbers? Anyone look familiar?
  • What's the guard situation look like?
  • Does it look like there are active auctions going on at the moment?*
  • What's the activity around the slave pens? Are people freely moving around in that area, or are non-slaves kept away?
  • Since Will can get closest, can he get any more specific info about what's going on from actual chatter?

  • Can we get a better view of the slave pens? Maybe general estimation of numbers? Anyone look familiar?

Yes, see above, and yes - one of the pens holds a handful of men (and one woman) who look oddly well fed and /very/ well worked over. One of them is cradling an arm that looks like it might be broken. Two more have broken noses, and several have deep gashes on arms and legs and abdomen. They're not clad in anything so obvious as body armor or uniforms, but closer inspection suggests that under all that dirt and blood, they're Sterling's missing military team.

  • What's the guard situation look like?

See above.

  • Does it look like there are active auctions going on at the moment?*

See above

  • What's the activity around the slave pens? Are people freely moving around in that area, or are non-slaves kept away?

Moving freely, checking out the wares. In addition to the guards at the pens, each pen has a handler who'll bring a slave over for up close and personal inspection on request, if you're registered as a buyer.

  • Since Will can get closest, can he get any more specific info about what's going on from actual chatter?

Chatter suggests an auction tonight, a lot of bickering over prices. He can probably pick up that everyone in the slave pens is human - no mutants.
