(21:22:48) arcanus: Synopsis
(21:27:48) Black: After spending casting his mind out for any traces of Raz and Annette, Black found only a trace of the elf. He spent an hour sitting in the last detected position letting his mind roam, trying to follow any threads that might lead him to where Raz had gone.
(21:28:45) Black: He got one image - that of a Swastika.
(21:32:25) Black: He travelled back to Chicago and spent time searching through all the archives at Infinity, trying to find mentions of magic users that utilise sound, and also of jumpers. Having found very little, Black, against all his better judgement decided he would have to consult with an old and wise man he knew on Pheonix.
(21:37:09) arcanus: The concern of course what that Infinity was ultra paranoid regarding Pheonix, considering it ones of the greatest threats to The Secret. However their were routes to it, ones that Infinity were unaware of, ones that Black would have to uttilise.
(21:39:01) Black: How much do I know of these alternative routes?

(21:45:44) arcanus: A year or so after his escape from Pheonix, he began to clandestinely look into how much was known of his World Line most was ultra classified and he had to steer clear or draw attention, however he did pick up rumours of a way in based in the Bering Sea.
(21:47:35) Black: Whilst considering the the consequences of his his decision, Black sends an email to Wallace: X is all he writes. From that point on he turns off his phone and leaves it in his appartment. (21:49:19) Black: "Russians!" he muses as he takes the El to a safety deposit repositary on the south side. there he removes his old Pheonix ID's and some money.
(21:50:36) arcanus: "You stink of Cop" purred the gravelly voice of the Russian sitting opposite him "Why should I even talk to you?"
(21:51:23) Black: Because I can pay...
(21:55:02) arcanus: As far as dens of iniquity went this one was pretty drab and depressing, a gambling den sat within the middle of the Southern Fish markets of Juneau, Alaska. The Russian grunted and drew heavily upon the short stubby cigar that never seemed to shrink, "Money is no good for a deadman!"
(21:56:27) Black: You are still breathing
(21:56:59) Black: Besides where i want to go is not exactly legal...

(22:04:47) arcanus: The Russians mind is foggy, Homelines usual Inertia bears down, as subconciously he resists, his mind slipping and sliding beneath Blacks grasp
(22:27:52) Black: "Shit!" Black curses as he struggles to get a grasp on the Russian's mind. Is this the only contact he has?
(22:28:43) arcanus: Yes, he was very hard to trace, in terms of layers of secrecy it seems those who know of this are intensly paranoid
(22:30:27) Black: What sort of security has he brought with him?
(22:35:13) arcanus: There are at least ten goons of Slavic origin positioned at various places around the market
(22:38:22) Black: Listen... i have to get to Pheonix Black says with determination. And I have to do it without Infinity knowing.

(22:43:42) arcanus: He closes his eyes again, rubbing his forehead and scratchs his wiry grey beard and sits back down on his crate
(22:45:40) arcanus: Black senses something amiss with is thought patterns
(22:46:17) Black: with his own thought patterns of with the Russians?

(22:49:40) arcanus: "What" he replies looking confused
(22:50:25) Black: You seem.... distracted? Are you not well?

(22:55:01) Black: Did the change in his thought patterns come on suddenly or perhaps as a result of my attempts at probing?
(22:55:31) Black: How much do you want?
(22:56:02) arcanus: You think they were always there, however his headache seemed to grow worse as you initiated the Probe
(22:56:49) arcanus: $50,000 in unmarked notes
(22:57:30) Black: Do i have tht much?

(23:16:26) arcanus: "They will want more at the other end, a lot more" he frowns
(23:16:57) Black: "On Pheonix?
(23:18:56) Black: "
(23:19:18) arcanus: He shrugs, "Before you depart" he replied nonchalantly
(23:19:48) Black: How far is this Guy taking me?
(23:20:17) arcanus: "How do you mean?"
(23:21:17) Black: Is he saying that once i arrive on Pheonix I will have to pay the people at the other end?
