Nov 27 19:53:24 <Echo> Evans looks out the common room to the door. "Uhhhh, breaking in?"
Nov 27 19:53:24 <Maddy> Atropa gets up, shufflinf closer to other people.

Nov 27 19:53:52 <Pemander> "I don't know. I heard glass shatter."

Nov 27 19:53:58 <Dexanote> Myr relaxes, heading inside.
Nov 27 19:54:10 <Pemander> "Either that or someone tossed a rock through a window."

Nov 27 20:05:03 <Echo> Scott is outside.
Nov 27 20:05:26 <Dexanote> Myr is there! as is Arnold.

Nov 27 20:05:35 <Echo> He went outside to see if it was a drunk asshole as the others went up the stairs.
Nov 27 20:05:39 <Pemander> Myrtle's shoulder, then.
Nov 27 20:05:50 <Ragazzo> Arnold continues to stare around confused.
Nov 27 20:05:55 <Maddy> "Guys…"
Nov 27 20:06:02 <Maddy> "Flashlights maybe?"
Nov 27 20:06:20 <Dexanote> Myr looks to the right, drawing a little LED flashlight from her coat. *clik*
Nov 27 20:06:56 <Echo> The white beam blasts everyone's vision for a moment before their eyes adapt.
Nov 27 20:07:24 <Maddy> Atropa takes out a little flashlight too, carefully pointing it at the floor as not to get it in peoples eyes.

Nov 27 20:09:48 <Echo> Arnold might as well be casper the fucking ghost.
Nov 27 20:10:15 <Echo> And the sound Arianna heard before is apparent to each of them. It sounds like something's scrabbling at the walls inside the room.
Nov 27 20:10:26 <Echo> Not next to them, maybe the far side.
Nov 27 20:10:50 <Pemander> Then Arianna is heading to the far side.
Nov 27 20:11:02 <Echo> She's opening the door?
Nov 27 20:11:07 <Ragazzo> Arnold glides on ahead, confidently in his element now,trying to noiselessly pass through the door of the room the sound is coming from if it's open already.
Nov 27 20:11:14 <Ragazzo> Oh it's shut.
Nov 27 20:11:18 <Ragazzo> He stands there then.
Nov 27 20:11:21 <Ragazzo> Off to the side.
Nov 27 20:11:36 <Pemander> She's not opening the door yet. She stands to the opposite side of it.
Nov 27 20:11:42 <Pemander> Opposite of Arnold, that is.
Nov 27 20:11:55 <Pemander> Do the doors open into the rooms or into the hallway?

Nov 27 20:12:40 <Echo> It turns easily, quietly.
Nov 27 20:12:51 <Echo> But the sound stops.
Nov 27 20:14:01 <Ragazzo> Arnold nods at myrtle to go in.
Nov 27 20:14:30 <Dexanote> Myr pushes the door open quietly, sweeping the room with her flashlight as the door opens.
Nov 27 20:14:53 <Ragazzo> He's staying in the dark by the door's side.
Nov 27 20:15:28 <Echo> She's good enough to catch it all quickly, bed on the left side, covers undisturbed, a few chairs around a table in the back left corner, window in the middle, entrance to a bathroom on the right, like the other rooms.
Nov 27 20:15:58 <Echo> «Guys, what's the word? You still lookin'?»
Nov 27 20:16:51 <Tom90deg> Zoe is downstairs, by the fireplace.

Nov 27 20:17:37 <Tom90deg> «Lovely.»
Nov 27 20:17:43 <Ragazzo> Arnold steps in once myrtle has advanced some, and kneeling, tries to peer under the bed cautiously, a knife at the ready.

Nov 27 20:19:12 <Pemander> She goes to check the bathroom, then.
Nov 27 20:19:15 <E4D> «Unless the cold's got me fooled, these walls seem pretty damn th-SHIT»
Nov 27 20:19:27 <Maddy> «Scott?!»

Nov 27 20:20:32 <Ragazzo> Arnold gets up, going to the window and looks out it.
Nov 27 20:21:21 <Maddy> «Scott?» "Is he out there is he ok?"
Nov 27 20:21:35 <Pemander> "What was he going to say? The walls are 'thin'?"
Nov 27 20:21:43 <Echo> Scott's footprints can be seen going out past the vehicles, then back inside the wire around the front porch, then in circles. Looks like he was shuffling around.
Nov 27 20:22:07 <Dexanote> Myr scans the room quickly before turning back to go downstairs. "Was that his gun, or somebody else's?"
Nov 27 20:22:15 <Echo> Five spent casing glint in the snow. His handgun's laying on the porch, with a piece of the elastic cable attached to the butt trailing off.
Nov 27 20:22:48 <Tom90deg> «Anyone see Scott or anything?»

Nov 27 20:23:25 <Pemander> Arianna frowns.
Nov 27 20:23:36 <Dexanote> She's pulled! Looking out the window! "His gun's on the porch, there's footprints everywhere. Everyone back outside."
Nov 27 20:23:43 <Tom90deg> Zoe follows Myrtle and Ari. "Right."

Nov 27 20:24:37 <Maddy> Atropa goes with.
Nov 27 20:24:40 <Ragazzo> Then heads outside, being stealthy still. Two more points dropped, +3 to relevant skills.

Nov 27 20:55:06 <Pemander> "God, what an idiot."
