To the group:
To everyone who has worked with Elizabeth before, you know her as a relatively serious-minded investigator who tends to have a business-first sort of attitude on the clock, and a rather deadpan sense of humor. She lightens up off the clock, and will have drinks and play cards with the guys (if they're into that sort of thing).
She's in her late 30s, has a slender build, and keeps her straight, brown hair tied back in a pony tail most of the time. She usually wears guy's clothing as she tends to get messy in the shop/lab and while crawling on the ground looking for clues. Her most noticeable features are a series of scars on the left side of her face and neck, as well as the missing lobe from her left ear, missing left pinkie, and partially missing left ring finger. She said there was an explosion when she was 15 while experimenting with some black powder.
Until now. Now Barnes is dead, killed by a 15 foot high monstrosity that looked like some sort of spider or crab. Now your tricks work just fine, and you have to wonder who the unnamed prisoner is, and why he's where he is, because Barnes died before he could tell you everything.Bhu:
Is there any chance we'd get to look at the scene of the attack? If so, I'd like to look for any clues, taking 20:
Search = 20+17 = 37.
Once everything calms down from the attack and Elizabeth has time to clear her head, she storms over to the jail to talk to the prisoner."Who are you, and why are you imprisoned here?"
Sense Motive = d20+10
Rolled 1d20+10 : 6 + 10, total 16
No you have to see to the defense of your town somehow,OOC:
when you say "defense", do you mean against eldritch abominations, or is the town worried about attack from the British?
How many people saw the 15-foot tall monster attack?
and maybe get word through to Philadelphia, where Barnes assured you there was help.
Did Barnes give any sort of clue as to what type of help?
