    As the newly contracted operatives discussed their respective roles the train began pulling back into the station below the docks its gears whistling and screeching as it pulled to a stop in the station. Out of one of the connecting cars one of the Valets entered theough a door to a connecting car. On his breast pocket was the symbol that was being seen so frequently now. The Young man's face was one of the most curiousthings about his as it revealed his was from the orient, a quite unusual sight in london.

    "Sirs and Madams" he said cordially greeting Bowing his head lightly before bringing in a tube before extracting a few papers from the tube and laying them out on a table in the room revealing floor plans for the tower "i do hope this helps woth the planning, if you need anything do ask" the young Valet said before withdrawning to an unoccupied corner of the room.

    "Heh, what a polite trained monkey."
    Lucia said when the valet entered and had spoken. She finally found a light and lit her cigarette. She flicked the match at the valet and leaned back on her chair.
    "What kind of opposition can we expect exactly? Anyone inside we can manipulate? Options for covert inflitration?"
    Blowing cigarette smoke out of her nose, she took another sip of her drink and crossed her legs.

    "Lovely to see that you recognize your cousin.." The Brit mumbled to himself at Lucia's 'monkey' comment - though aside from that he kept himself quiet. His gaze turned out towards the window at his side, as though to watch the scenery (should there even be any) and listened with his ear facing the group. Or, towards the inside of the train car at least.
    He may not look as though he was interested, he did keep his ears on alert for any noise or anything that was said!

    Izzy had been in his seat silently watching the scenery as time went on began stirring from his trance of just staring out at the scenery, Grabbing a book from his pack the man began, slowly sketching something up, his right hand as he took it out had glinted several times at other passengers from a piece of metal that revealed itself that his hand was not at all a normal hand at all. "Quite a nice day out isn't it?" he asked to no one in particular possibly talking to himself.
  5. Karl adjusted his seat for a moment before looking at the papers the man had brought in. He chose to ignore the rude woman for the moment and simply looked over what was presented to him. While he would very much not think about the past but he couldn't just forget everything the war taught him. Though his tired eyes made examining what was on the papers difficult he had nothing better to do. Either he does his best here or dies and despite some thoughts he had in the past he would much rather live. He brought the glass of beer to his lips again as he tried to make sense of the floor plans.

    Cornelia shot the pirate woman a foul look when the monkey comment came forth, but she got up from her her seat and strode over to the table that held the map. She placed her hands by her sides, as her eyes looked over the map see where the LTA 15 would likely be stored, and where it was in relation with where the papers would be, and where the ship itself would located.

    All so that the Engineer could make a reasonable assumption that if their mission should turn from subtleties to violence, which would be the fastest way to get all their objectives done before they had to deal with the inevitable response over the small matter of stealing an airship.

    The map had information on where the Delphinus was stored , unfortunately it was stored higher up in the tower in the 3rd pier from the top and on a building that was 40 stories tall it would be quite the feat to reach undetected especially with the rest of the requirements for the crew of the Delphinus' daring rescue. The Elevators were monitored and the variety of workmen around the place would provide a challenge if a brawl burst out their worker suits capable of dealing quite the hefty punch though the route of taking the spiral slopes was possible it would be lengthy

    The LTA 15 would be a bit more accessible to the crew. A collassol storage tank in the core of the building that ran up its entirety contained LTA 15 for the refilling of Airship balloons along with the equipment necessary for auch a procedure at regular stations about it, unfortunately the valuable commodity was guarded and monitored.

    The beating bureaucratic heart of the Daedalan Docks lie underneath the base of the tower into 3 basement levels of files and bureacrats who would sound alarms at sight of intruders. Unfortunately the information in the documents the Valet had brought failed there, the only information of its location being that it was not on the first level of the burecratic basement.

    Once that information had been established the Valet looked up to the crew and smiled faintly "while this task may seem in its nature herculean i assure you that our employer has in place a method to assit you" from his coat he pulled a small device and placed it on the table "this is incase you need a distraction to assit you though i beg of you to use it with..." he paused and smiled a mischevious smile "caution" he said simply before stepping back away from the group to allow them to plan

  8. Karl put his hand to his chin as he took as much information from the papers as he could. The task they have been given was indeed impossible and it was ridiculous to ask this group of stranger to acompish something like this without working with eachother in the past. Not like he hadn't been given a ridiculous objective by uncaring superiors before. But he would rather not dwell on that as the Valet placed what looked like a detonator on the table. Christ what had he gotten himself into today? He was looking for work as a doctor and he had gotten involved with an airship heist. "If this distraction is what I believe it is then we would require at least three separate teams to acquire each objective. Two would go up to secure the ship and the gas and a third acquires the documents. The one going underground would need to be especially quick in order to rendezvous with the other two teams. The one securing the gas would need to be heavily armed and the one securing the air ship would need to assure they airship isn't damaged in the battle. An air frame full of holes won't fly." He was thinking to himself aloud as the gears of his mind being turning.

  9. Wincent folds his arms, looking at the group, and the informant. He sighes, as he agrees to Karl's words. It is... quite the undertaking to put it lightly. He strokes his hair back, thinking of what needs to be done.
    "This operation, by the sounds of it, is almost akin to a special tactics operation. Though it is quite clear it isn't of the "kind" sort."
    He rolls his eyes. He is quite sure their contractor wouldn't give a shit about if they got hurt or not.

    Lucia took a sip of her drink, and switched her legs around, still keeping them crossed.
    "I've stolen some ships here and there. My strengths would be put to best use to haul the ship out, as I can navigate it. Also need a pilot and the fuel. We could use the slopes to try and minimize risk of detection."
