Judge left Team Remiel before they came over to join me here in Slender Falls.
The whole team had gone undercover investigating possible Slendercult activity in the UK. Well the whole team minus Brother Luke and I. I have absolutely no aptitude for that espionage bollocks while Brother Luke refused to do what he felt was “underhanded Inquisitor work”. Activity was uncovered, some of it cult related but we had next to no Slendercult activity.
Judge managed to somehow lose Hermione and Icarus while they were undercover and Brother Luke had to lead a Cestus Dei raid to recover them. Judge quit the team over some point of honour. So the team were sent over to join me as the colonies are where all the entity activity can be found. It was also seen as something of an acid test to see if Hermione and Icarus had been turned. No they hadn’t. Dictionary had said as much but evidently whomever ran their debrief felt it pertinent to push things. I’m a little pissed off about that, can you tell?
Anyway my team is now indeed My team. As the team’s senior officer I’m in charge. I’m not sure how I feel about that. Although my seizures are still with me they’re less frequent. Which is odd. I thought playing mayor for some town in the back of beyond would be stressful but apparently not.
Anyway we now have 89 guests. Nobody ‘famous’. So we’re still small. It’s now falling below zero here so cold weather gear is de rigueur. We only need the linings when it gets into double-digit negatives or if we’re planning on spending a lot of time out in the cold. Dr P managed to gather a mix of cold weather gear which we’ve been handing out to our guests.
We also now have a bar. JW’s parked itself in a vacant building beside Runner’s Fill. The down side is it violates freaking security. The wards are there for a reason and having JW’s here messes with that. On the plus side JW’s has it’s own security which given the presence of Rodney is probably better than my wards. On the plus side we can always use it as an escaped route in the worst case scenario. The Proprietor said that he and his staff are to be considered on call by us as and when the need arises. He also said we could use JW’s to rescue more runners. He said JW’s will move more of its doorways through the Americas and hopefully be more likely to pick up runners that way. Those are promises I intend to take to the bank.
