"So Jones recruited all of you to some extent?"

"Kind of. I more or less volunteered."

"Ah.  Recruits by unfortunate circumstance then."

Eric nods, and looks at the rest of his companions.

There is a knock upon the door and councilman Bryan bids them enter.  It's a very nervous looking aide who whispers into the councilmans ear for several long moments.  He then bids the aide leave the room, and turns to Mr. Jenkins. 


"It would seem some of my council brethren are as motivated by fear as common sense.  They want to have some sort of hold upon various important persons, and your Colonel Peebles is one of them.  I will see to it the pressure is taken off of him.  It may indeed be that they wished to use him to get yo you sir.  The council has parted ways in our opinions on how to best handle the current circumstances.  Indeed we aren't even sure in total what our current circumstances are.  You may wish to...be careful.  Even enlightened men who should know better can act oddly under duress."

"But now Constable Jones, who was among our most formidable practicioners of...science, has disappeared on an errand.  Much like Franklin.  Much like General Washington, whom we all suspect to be dead.  You were picked by him, most likely for some sort of training I think because desperate times demand desperate measures.  But you will need a new governmental liaison until Jones reappears.  I would suggest Constable Isaiah here, and that furthermore at least one of you be made a constable as well.  I will leave that to you."

He turns to the natives

"What news did you have for Jones?"

"I was told to speak only to Jones or his second, Harry Dresden.  Failing that I was to locate the rest of his men, who would conveniently appear to have been arranged for my arrival."

His expression and tone are perfectly neutral.  You can't tell if he's fishing or being accusatory.

Jimmy watches all of this quietly.  He's finally starting to wise up, unlike Jones these people will probably not be okay with The Boss, and The Boss will probably want to know what's going on with these people.

"Are you looking for a volunteer for a new constable, or what?"

'someone who both wants the job and is capable would be preferable.  What exactly is it that you do now?"

He pulls out some paperwork and scribbles on it.

"Sign here and you're officially a constable.  One of you sign as a witness."

"Until Jones is found you report to me.  Go find him, and if you can't interview these gentlemen and find out what you're supposed to know.  If you'll excuse me I need to have a stiff word with a few people."

With that you and the natives are shown into the street.  Still with no explanation for the attack on one of your own."

"Wonderful. I don't even know where to begin to look.

I was a bit preoccupied with wall defenses as of late. Do any of you remember when and where we were supposed to meet up with Jones? Who saw him last? We may have to start there and go backward."



Eric looks at the new companions:

"Where were you supposed to meet Jones? How did he contact you?"

ooc: He and Harry were supposed to contact you within a few days.

"We've been laying low outside of town.  Jones was to meet us today.  He didn't show so we came looking for him."

"Is there a way for us to stay with one of you?  Given today's reaction I doubt we'll be welcomed into the city again if we leave, and we most definitely aren't safe outside it."

"I think that's a good idea.

So, where has Jones been known to stay in the past? We need to start looking for something that would help us find him."

"I'd ask Harry, but seeing as he's missing as well...Jones must have had some sort of lodgings."

"Dammit. I'm fresh out of ideas. Shall we lay low for a night and see what the morning bring?"

He looks to the native Americans and tells them they can come with him.
