Who were these griffons again? They seem vaguely familiar, yet Amber can't place their names.
"If you say so. Will you go by new names, or don't you think a change of identity is needed?"
Blue Skies nods to the other two
Amber knows who these two are. The white griffin is Helder Von Neuestadt. He claims to be a family friend of the Katerin dynasty, somehow. His father was director of art for the previous king, or something, and so is he. Nominally, anyways. The red griffin is a bit more familiar: Erich Sóbányász. He's not from around here, and plays the violin in the town orchestra, but more importantly, in the personal sessions given to the princess
"I think my name will be helpful, if anything."
"If they are looking for me, yes. If the rumors about the Imperials being involved are true."
"You two get into position. I will give you minute or two before I start my move. Maybe I will be able to avoid violence, maybe not, but be ready."
Silver attempts to move over to the alley, hopefully without anyone from the restaurant noticing his shotgun.
Blue Skies walks to the other side, and takes a round about way of going to the restaurant before walking inside
What is Silver wearing?
It's difficult to move into position, because the alley is genuinely behind the restaurant, rather than to the side. The restaurant occupies a corner position on the lot, with the patio (which is to the left of the building) along the side of the road. The alley is ten or so feet wide, and is between the building and a department store.
What is he wearing? Either the tattered remains of his uniform and his armor, or nothing but his armor.
How is he going to prevent a shotgun from being noticed as he walks directly past on a city street?
Hide it on the other side of his body?
Which would also face a public building? It's a city street
Hmm...any way to go around?
By driving the car around, yes.
Probably a good idea then.
If silver is going to both drive the stolen car out in the open, and carry a long gun out in the open... he should roll die for luck
Okay, so what is Silver’s precise move?
Go around the corner, park, and approach the alley from the other side.
Indeed, very prominent and skilled musicians, though their particular placements place them in the same sort of danger she is in.
"Knowing to disappear is always a valuable skill, though the only griffins able to practice it are lucky spies," she remarks.
"No. Our kind has lived in the shadows long before the first Grover dared to leave his tree in Griffonstone. And we shall outlast this last of the Grovers, just as we have outlasted the Katerins. What was different this time was that we moved into the light. We can move back into the darkness as necessary."
"If you say so, just be careful the light does not follow after you," she warns.
This is not a joke, and Erich especially makes an expression that betrays his fear, while Helder at least gives the impression of being unaffected
"Yes. I know. Are you ready?"
"I have everything I need."
"Alright. I think we can... borrow a car, and go to Montierter Helm's place, where we will meet the others."
"We need to leave the palace..."
"You think?" she asks, raising an eyebrow or the griffon equivalent. "I was hoping it wouldn't be an improvised performance."
"What do you mean?" He asks
"You two weren't able to plan this out in advance to make sure we don't get harried along the way?" she asks in a disappointed tone.
Helder replies, and his voice starts to quiver
"We didn't think they would arrest the princess, let alone think to come after us
"Nothing in this world is certain anymore," she mutters with a sigh.
"Oh I would say some things are certain. The Katerintrue's attempts to save themselves will not work. They will be hanged, or at best thrown aside like the rest."
"It's a shame, but with the way the world is, the best one can do is save oneself."
"How are we going to 'borrow' a car? And can you drive?"
“An associate of Montierter will drive us. We can borrow a car from the lot, if necessary.”
"Alright, good…." though the tone of voice is uncertain.
What is Dark Star’s next move?
Does Dark Star require anything if Silver before he goes through with his plan of driving around the block to come at the alley from the other side?
Sorry did see you respond
a highfive(high two?)
It looks like the ponies are ready to proceed
I suppose there's time for a high-hoof before we get to our positions.>>158675
Once on the other side, Silver makes his way to the backalley, hopefully inconspicuously.
Dark star looks over at blue
"Ready to go?"
He has a semi-grim expression on his face
She looks back to him, and nods
"One last thing. Am I waiting for you inside, or have we never met?"
"Yea we can have met before, perhaps we are a couple. meet me at a corner booth."
Maybe we can pick back up this weekend.
Maybe it will be substantial progress as well
