Lenny Goes Undercover
In last nights Weird Adventures WaRP game on Google+, the gang followed up on some leads but were still left with no clear idea of who killed the body of the now disembodied brain William Carmody or kidnapped his fiancee. Without Diabolico in attendance, they had no car, so that meant a lot of cab rides.
First, they crashed the Cobalt Club to check try to dig up something on industrialist Hew Hazzard, who Carmody had been working with. This involved overall wearing Lenny having to wear a coat and tie. Loone pretended to be a reporter out for an interview, but no headlines were made from his chat with Hazzard.
Next, Lenny went undercover to infiltrate Waxy Moldoon's gang. He had impressed Two Teeth (a suboordinate) with his moxie last time and got offered a job. Lenny got a chance to prove himself in front of the boss by applying "harsh interrogation" to an Eisenmensch they had captured. What did thaumatosurgically altered cyborgs from the Great War have to do with this? Well, Waxy seemed to think they had the dodecahedron (or "dingus" as he called it).
Either the guy didn't know anything or wasn't talking, and Lenny contrived to bust him out and escape, which he did with the help of a fire started by Boris, telepathically coordinated by Loone. Before that, though, Lenny almost lost control to his "imaginary" rabbit-like companion who wanted him to kill them all:
After they made their escape under the goons' guns, they used a bit of gentler interrogation on Karl the Eisenmensch. he still claimed to no nothing, but Loone's peaks into his mind revealed he did know of a group of Eisenmensch that were good candidates for having the device, and a place called "Greasy Lake" seemed important. Boris recalled there was a big junkyard at a place called Greasy Lake.
The gang decided to find Diabolico and check it out.
