We need to get those train logs!
An ornithopter is tooling around up in the sky, looking out for the party, so they decide to hijack it. Psyker tries to find out where they will land while up in the air, but freaks out the pilot and causes them to land early. Tybalt heads over to where they are assuming the chopper will land based on available spots, once the chopper lands Tybalt walks around to find a spare suit and bullshits his way on as the spare pilot. Dariel continues projecting after the chopper following them around. Tybalt disables the radio and pretends that they have spotted the party, and are being sent to chase them down. The soldiers in the back are lowered on a winch to the street. He then heads to go pick up the others, the other pilot sees the party on the roof, and starts trying to radio back through the broken system. Dariel dominates the pilot and forces him to head to the back of the chopper. Tord is brought up on the winch, and tosses pilot Wilkins out for Priss to catch.
Once all on the chopper, Tybalt flies around for a while to throw off suspicion, then drops them off at a convenient rooftop where they can get in. Tybalt keeps flying around for a while to not let on anything is wrong, and as a possible escape route.
Unfortunately the dropoff is spotted, and Lionel radios the chopper asking what’s going on. Tybalt tries to pretend to be Johnson and spin a lie about what happened, saying that one of the soldiers really needed a bathroom break, but his deception was seen through and he was ordered to report back to the landing spot. He tried to pretend to be the crazy pilot and who then forfeited command to the other one, who he also tried to pretend to be, but it didn’t work out.
Inside, Priss turns to Dariel, hands him a rebreather, says ’you’ll need this’. Then starts shooting hallucinogen grenades out. Pretty much everyone near them is affected by the torrent of grenades. They see some guards, one manages to get his gas mask on in time, but the other does not, and then attacks the one who does have his mask on.
They follow signs to the keeper of records office, take out the guards in front. From behind the door they hear a scared voice ‘Is it time?’ Dariel assumes he’s going to try to destroy the logbooks they are here for. ‘No, stay your hand!’ ‘oh, thank the emperor…’
They try to convince him to open the door, or to knock the door down, fail on both counts. They hear him crying from inside, and then something drops. Dariel invokes Compel and tells him to protect the logbook with his life, which stops his crying. Tord chainaxes through the door, and they see some kind of official standing in front of a fireplace holding a burning book, looking very confused, trying slowly to put it out. Dariel grabs it and is able to put the fire out before there is much damage.
Around the room, there are shelves and shelves full of more of these books, the one book is train history and delays for the last 10 years, there must be over 1000 years of history here.
Priss decides that they need to kidnap the doofus in there with the book, but it takes two tries to grab him, to her chagrin. They start heading back to the roof, and Tybalt tries to sneak the ornithopter back around quickly. They are able to get back on the chopper and sneak away in all the commotion from the hallucinogen grenades.
