    "Ok. Let's fly then."


    They discussed exactly where they will patrol, and switch off to cover the two key areas plus the surrounding area, then went off to do exactly that.

    "Don't forget, we also have school and homework," Arachne says.

    Since there are 4 of us lets do a 1 in Lakeview, 2 in poverty Gulch(Arachne and our fastest flyer) and 1 in Brackett Park
    every few day we swap where our heavy 2 person unit is
    we have radios to call in the others should 1 unit strike gold

    Also maybe it is time we found out how fast you can fly

    "Okay," Arachne says.  "One good thing about this is that Poverty Gulch and Brackett Park are next to each other."

    So we three shall be the mobile ones and Arachne can be close quartered.  Arachne, where do you want to start?

    "Poverty Gulch isn't the only wealthy neighborhood," Arachne says.  "There's also Brackett Park in the city and Falcon Bluff and Royal Grove in Lakeview.  Both Poverty Gulch and Brackett Park are near University Commons."

    "Yeah," Avis replies, "Ghost Cat helped get the bus out of the hole!"


    He thinks for a moment, "Has this been a rare occurrence or have other attempts been made?  Do you think if we patrolled some areas of the city we might catch someone in the act? Would you welcome us doing this?"

    "There are between two and three dozen burglaries each day, some are committed during daylight hours," Diana said.  "It wouldn't hurt if you patrolled.  During the daytime, the burglars are probably wearing regular clothes."

    "Hello Detective, I'm Avis from the Junior Justice Foundation, and we've been looking at the cat burglary information, we've actually gone to talk with Beverly, one of the potential suspects but didn't really get very far with her.  She did point a finger at one of the officers but I think she's just deflecting attention away from herself."


    "At any rate," Avis continues, "I was wondering if you had come across any other leads we could assist you with?"

    "Afraid not, Avis," Diana replies.  "It wasn't Beverly.  There was a traffic accident that tied up the freeway that with the fastest route to the city.  The other two good routes she could've taken were closed, one is having utility lines replaced while the other had a bus break through the blacktop."

    Well technically we've only fought two villains, one was insane and the other just wanted to be left alone...


    How else are we supposed to get exercise if we aren't "Jumping to conclusions" or "running down the boss"?


    <I presume we are heading back to base> Report time again?  What was the name of the cop Beverly fingered as a possible cat burglar?  Oh ya Detective Lieutenant Barbara Whitfield.


    Looks at the others, who is our police contact now?



    (Detective Lieutenant Diana Grove is their police liaison and head of the Paranormal Affairs Unit.)

    Maybe I'm just looking for conspiracies in everything?? Or is this just a normal day for San Angelo?

    "It's a normal day," Bonnie says.  "As I understand it, a lot of the infrastructure under the streets is old and some of it is falling apart."

    Hopefully the fire department is there GC will ask them to hose her off so she is only wet and from there she will shapeshift to slough of any excess sewage and water
    then she will head to the car

    While Ghost Cat's getting hosed down, the gas company crew inspects their lines.  By the time she's in Bonnie's SUV, the gas company crew reports that there are no damage to the gas lines.

    "I need everybody to get back at least 40 yards, I'm going to push this bus up and out from the front"
    once that is done GC will get in the muck and try and find good footing to push off from
    she will push her strength to 50(5pts) and leap 20m back where the bus came from

    "Okay, everyone, get clear.  Once the bus is out, we have to have the utility companies come in and inspect their lines and repair any damage before we can fill the hole and put new paving down."  Once everyone was clear, he said to Ghost Cat, "All yours."

    broken water main?
    does it look like there are shorting out of any power lines
    GC says"Call HQ and see if there are any power lines in this area get them turned off(she will spend a minute to give as exact position as possible +3 for time  base Navigation 12-)

    HQ responds that any underground electrical or communications cables would be inside either metal or plastic conduits and that it was probably caused by a slow leak in a sewer line.  If it was a water main, since they're under pressure, there would've been a geyser.

    "is anybody trapped in the bus?"

    "No, we got them out through the emergency exits, which are the windows, closest to the ground.  However, the bus is close to the transformer vault for the shopping mall  just down the road  Natural gas, water, sanitary sewer, steam, and storm sewer pipes are also close to the vault." 

  12. As you head back, you notice that traffic is backed up on the main road to San Angelo and that the other two are closed at a certain point. 


    One has been dug up, exposing the maze of piping under the street and has a construction crew working on it.  The other has the front of a bus sticking up at a steep angle.  The rear of the bus is in a big hole.

    "Yes. Some gems were stolen."

    "Assuming you're referring to the museum burglary, I could've done it, but I didn't.  You can check the record from the transmitter on my left ankle if you don't believe me."  She pauses, then says, "I don't know most of the burglars in the area.  We're secretive and, usually, don't stay in one area too long, unless we have a good cover identity.  Lieutenant Barbara Whitfield could've done it.  I should know.  I trained her for a series of burglary videos we did for the San Angelo Police Academy, and she was a natural.  She admitted later that, besides growing up in a wealthy family, she'd been a gymnast in high school and college.  Being from wealth, she probably know a lot about the wealthy and their habits.  Let's see, who else, my parents could've, but, last I heard, they were in Las Vegas.  Sorry, I can't help you any more.  Got to get back to doing chores, like I did growing up on my uncle's horse farm."

    "Hello. We are the Junior Justice Foundation. May we speak to you about a series of robberies and break ins which happened recently?"

    "Sure," she replies.  "I assume you're talking about sophisticated break-ins, like I once did, and not a break-in done at random by some drug addict punk who doesn't have the sense to wear a mask, let alone gloves."  

  15. The lighthouse is a Cape Cod-style house with a two-car garage on the first floor and the light sticking out of the solar cell-covered roof.  The section sticking up also has radio antenne, weather instruments, and what could be two foghorns.  A concrete driveway leads from one garage door down to the river's edge.  A second driveway goes along one side to the street.


    A woman dressed like a cowgirl is sweeping the driveway.

    (The thing is, Rob would never think of this himself. He is still an unseasoned superheroien and doesn't know the in and out of the city yet. This is why we have a contact and watched with the parent team.)

    (True, that's why visiting the lighthouse, by a police department Boston Whaler, would be suggested by a detective in the Burglary Bureau.)

  17. (Beverly's lighthouse is the Roe Island Lighthouse in Suisun Bay, a shallow tidal estuary that is a northeastern extension of the San Francisco Bay.  The island lies at the confluence of the Sacramento River and San Joaquin River, forming the entrance to the Sacramento–San Joaquin River Delta, an inverted river delta that is known in the campaign as the Del Oro River Delta.

    (Bigger question: who is going to tell us that prehaps we should go ask questions at a lighthouse? I don't think anyone of us would think it up on our own.)

    (Possibly Detective Lieutenant Barbara Whitfield?)

    (Ok. It is official. We are stuck. We don't know where we need to go to get the desired information we need, if it even exists.)

    (Lighthouse keeper Beverly Archer is a cat burglar on parole.  She may have a few ideas.)
