Jojo's Bizarre Grail War Part 4 : A Z-Machine Adventure
« on: May 21, 2018, 12:19:34 am »
>You are Lily Humboldt!  Magus of Calumet City and a Master in a very unusual Grail War.
>Your Servant is Robin Hood -AHEM- Robin Wood, who is of the Archer Class. The two of you have gotten along well so far. You have met or at least heard of several other Servants in the Calumet City thus far, which is curious because as near as you can tell, the Grail is actually someplace in Delaware. That it's even on this continent is strange enough... Your servant has encountered Berserker, and the two of you decided to leave him be. You have had a battle with Rider; who turned out to be Henry Ford under the command of none other than Charles Koch; and came out victorious. More distressingly, you have also met Assassin, whom you have identified as Gavrilo Princip. He took to killing Charles himself, employing a Noble Phantasm that apparently strikes at the world order itself.
>Thankfully, the police didn't batter down your door that night as you slept, and even more thankfully Assassin was nowhere to be seen. Instead, you made your way out of Illinois while the nation went more and more insane in the wake of the murder of a highly influential billionaire. Passing through Indiana, you encountered Lancer and his Master, a Native America woman named Kimimela. Your meeting was tense, but ended somewhat peacefully, until Berserker showed up and you left them there to deal with it. After overnighting in the soulless husk of the eastern-most midwest, you make your way through the Appalachian Mountains and encountered another master, this one with a servant whose class didn't fit any of the ones that you expected. Just contemplating his information gave you a sense of disquiet. This time, things broke down and you ended up taking a more lethal solution to deal with things.
>Finally, you managed to reach your goal of Delaware, and had a reasonably peaceful and restful night. You then moved on to the Rehoboth area, where the sensation of the grail is strongest. You patrolled the area, found a reasonably secluded place to camp, and managed to find the Overseer, who is just about as clueless about the whole thing as you are; you were the first Master that she encountered at all! You managed to locate Caster and his Master, tracing them to a motel, and luring them out to beaches not far from your camp for the showdown, eventually overcoming his wind and mana distortion abilities through the power of screaming really loudly. You managed to part with the master on reasonably amicable terms, and engaged in a magical oddity that seems to break all the known laws.
>You got some rest and have woken up fairly sore. The news is full of even more of the nation going insane. You have been using the morning to take it easy.

> "Much appreciated."
> Plop down and have a seat.

>You have a seat close to Archer. "Feeling any better?" she says, not looking up from her work.

> "Kinda stiff, but I'll be alright. More anxious than anything. There are so many things to keep track of, I'm feeling a bit scatterbrained."
> "One thing at a time, I guess. Once Koch's mana battery isn't lighting us up like a christmas tree, I can start thinking about how to use it..."
> "Archer, you don't use much mana at all, do you? You didn't even notice the drain at all last night until you tried to use your noble phantasm."
> "If you had a huge amount of mana, is there anything interesting you could do with it?"

>Finding a mark is a little more difficult than it seems, most rich assholes don't seem to make their addresses particularly public. While Delaware is the sweet-heart incorporation capital of the US, if not the planet, it somehow manages not to have any actual billionaires, the closest you can find is the guy who invented Gore-tex.  However, looking into Scientology does reveal that a particular top level scammer seems to have a bungalow around Rehoboth Canal that they're trying to sell off for 2.4 million. As far as you can tell, they were never successful.

> Perfect!
> Actually, wait, the guy probably doesn't just have a stack of cash waiting in there for us to take.
> Finding a fence for stolen goods is probably well outside our field of expertise, and identity theft leaves a paper trail. We'd have to be pretty lucky to actually get any easy money out of it.
> Make a note of the target, we'll consider going after it if we have time.
> Next order of business: get acquainted with the layout of the University of Delaware so we know where to look for the plant. Do they have an agricultural department or something of the sort?

Actually, it may be a good idea for someone else to take over during this segment because I've never been inside a college before and I have no idea what kind of lies would be plausible.

I'm going to put in a vote for hitting the road and driving to the University, or close enough that Archer can scout it out.
