jdeleski said:"Hello Mr. Liuzzi, my name is Frank Pabodie. I'm one of the professors of engineering from Miskatonic University and I overheard you introduce yourself as an engineer and mechanical specialist of the Starkweather-Moore Expedition. It's a pleasure to meet you! I invented the core drilling apparatus that your team will be using in Antarctica"
Hurbert paused. "Story... Yes, if I remember correctly, our Commander Starkweather actually wrote a couple of books. When I get back to my office, I'll contact my friends at the Tribune and ask them to look through their files. If they find anything, I'll have them contact your hotel. In the meantime, you might want to pay a visit to the library." Hubert reached into his jacket, retrieved a well-worn pocket notepad and fountain pen, wrote himself a reminder, then said with a wink and a smile, "Just be sure to keep me in mind if you find something interesting in your travels."taitzu52 said:Jim nods to Hubert, responding, "Well, best I could muster was the Corps of engineers. I'm no war hero, but I did my part like everybody else. And you know, that would be great if your gents could send me some clippings, or at least lemme come down to their office. I do love a good story." Jim's curiosity is getting the better of him as was his drawl. Being in the field at the time of receiving the invitation, he had little time to do any research on the man that Starkweather was.
taitzu52 said:The charming Mrs. Broughton lets her guard down, for some reason or another. Jim very quietly responds, "Forgive me for asking, but if you barely know him, how...." Jim is used to working for oil tycoons and other self made men, i.e. glorified thieves. He is simply curious as to what would make a proper lady risk so much in conversation.
Amanda Broughton looked decidedly uncomfortable for a moment, then flushed scarlet in deep contrast to the white pearls at her neck. "I...," she began, looked away, then returned her gaze to your eyes, "I honestly cannot speak more of the Captain. I'm afraid that he and I do not see eye to eye on many things." Then she brightened, "But enough of me and my trivial concerns! Are you planning to visit any sights in our city before you depart?"The Shaman said:The mountaineer leans close to Mrs. Broughton, speaking as softly as he can amid the hubbub of the guests.
“Señora Broughton, I do not wish to pry, but your opinion of Señor Starkweather...” He hesitates for a moment, unsure of how to continue. “You do not seem to think very highly of him,” he says directly. “If I am not being rude, may I ask why?”
"Ooh!", Susan purred as she spun away to dance at arm's length, the two of you linked only by your fingertips, then asked with a smirk "So are you here to spend money? Or are you planning to jilt me after we've only just met and go join those madmen on the ice?"Morpheus said:"Mon cheri, I am Martin LeBlanc and I am most definitely pleased to make your acquaintance."
