Hoping for Peace, we wage war.
Currently you are on route to the front  you have gone through many trials but now you will proceed to subtly manipulate the war to help benefit the Fatherland.

Hoping for Peace, we wage war.
Romilda reflected for a few moments on how nice it was to be able to travel this way. There was a war on, and she was warm and comfortable gazing at a superb view on the deck of the Graf Zepellin II sipping a particularly fine 1929 Hermitage La Chapelle. Romilda was in her dress uniform with her Knight's Cross with Oak Leaves, Swords and Diamonds pinning her collar closed: a medal that earned her a salute from anyone that had not earned it, no matter the relative rank. The uniform had been well tailored and while perfectly respectable it left no doubt that Romilda was close to the Aryan dream woman. The uniform was the uniform of an officer in the army like her brother but had no obvious rank.

Romilda had always thought it a stroke of genius of Göring to let the world believe these enormous air ships were dismantled. The Graf Zepellin II was the first to be designed to use helium instead of hydrogen: something that gave Romilda significant comfort as she watched the ground below

The orders had been obscure, the destination unclear. Normally the Third Reich was almost the definition of German Efficiency, but this mission less so. Still she couldn't fault the start of the mission, she just hoped that the rest of it would be as pleasant

Romilda looked around at her fellow passengers, bringing to mind what she might know about people and their family. Most were scions she knew: favored in the eyes of the Æsir for the work they had done to bring about the inevitablity of the thousand year Reich. She wondered what they would see in her. They would see the physical immediately: her obvious beauty and the grace and poise of a Gräfin. They would see she was no muscle bound warrioress even if stronger than many mortals. Most of her work had been secret and only rumoured, although her work in preparing the way for the annexation of Great Britain and its commonwealth had earnt her the highest of commendations. A thought that usually brought a frown to her lips as she as reminded of the incompetence of the Luftwaffe and the lack of commitment to follow through on her accomplishment.

Taking another sip of the superb wine, she strolled over to a dining table, and wondered who she would be talking with and possibly dancing with. Tomorrow they might be at the battle front, but tonight... tonight was party night.

After a bit another scion Comes in a Demigod from back before the War he is just a bit past a mortal life time at this point, but still looks like a man in his 40s... hes known as a capable commander,  but a somewhat lackluster tactician, he has infectious zeal and drive, but isnt that good at outplanning the enemy.

He bows slightly "Charmed"

Re: Hoping for Peace, we wage war.
Courage and enthusiasm were good qualities in a man, and Thor was living proof that you didn't need an IQ bigger than your shoe size to be a great warrior. Romilda had always assumed he'd been hit one too many times in the head with a hammer. A bit like this man: she made a mental note not to rely on his foresight and judgement. Still 'Blitzkreig' was a powerful tactic, and people like this were probably ideal for fulfilling it. She would certainly rather have had him in charge than Göring. If they head, the United Kingdom would be a United part of the Axis.

"My pleasure" she said giving him her hand to kiss and returning the bow with a little curtsy "What name shall I call you?" many Scions were like chameleons, and changed their names and identities as often as Romilda might change a dress. It was hard though to talk to someone and just call them 'say' or 'hey you'.

"Are you here to discuss the mission briefing" she asked curiously: if so the man's lack of common sense and tactical awareness had extended to his mission planning. Another interesting observation that she tucked away in her little mental file. One good thing about the war of course, was that the 'competitions' for advancement among the Scions were reduced: people were judged on results, and she fully intended to give lots of results

Re: Hoping for Peace, we wage war.
Korina walked into the restaurant area, taking a quick look around before spotting an empty table and sitting down. Not the largest nor most imposing among the people there, one could easily overlook her in a crowd. But then again, not many of those people were Scions, and to those capable of detecting it she carried the unmistakable signs of Divinity within her.

She wore formal clothing befitting the event, though rather than a dress she had opted for a more masculine suit in various shades of gray. Perfectly fashionable for the times, though decisively following Allied fashion trends rather than Axis ones.

And then there was the approximately three foot long Roman-style spatha slanted across her back so as not to upset her center of balance.

He bows slightly and smiles "My Name is Tedrick, An apt fit yah?" he asks.

"In any event, we have reports of an allied Scion Working somewhere nearbye, were not sure on the individual or their lineage, what we can say is their intercepting Axis Patrols their techniques are low tech but effective.

Re: Hoping for Peace, we wage war.
"Indeed so" Romilda said in response to his name glad that she didn't have that name. 'God Given' implied that his powers were a gift. Herself she'd earned and worked for everything she'd had.

"Hmm and Allied Scion. By Low Tech, I assume you mean 'Smashing and Trashing'." Romilda said thoughtfully. "I'm not exactly the best person to fight such a one. Perhaps you need someone with a sword" she said gesturing with her head to Korina, and then moved over to the other Scion

"Greetings" Romilda said with a smile as she introduced herself to the most beautiful person in the room "I'm Romilda von Stauffenberg. This is Tedrick. I think he's here to brief us"

Re: Hoping for Peace, we wage war.
- "The pleasure is all mine. I am Korina Sideris."

She gave a small seated bow, motioning at the space left at the table if the two of them wished to join her for dinner. She tilted her head at Tedrick, trying to recall if she had seen him before, though regardless of the results she smirked at him.

- "And what, pray tell, would you brief this humble prosecutor on?"

Re: Hoping for Peace, we wage war.
"Hello Korina" Romila said as she looked at the two scions considering what was happening "So we have a Robin Hood. I wonder if he is as handsome as Erol Flynn." Romila loved the movie that was only two years old.

"I can see why you wanted the help of a prosecutor" her eyes flickered towards the huge sword on the back of Korina. "But what about myself. My skills are not in the area of combat. I'll be of little use on the battlefield"

He sighs "I know this will sound disapointing, but we have only so many Scions available to send on the front, you might be able to help with FINDING the scion in question and keeping the matter quiet

Re: Hoping for Peace, we wage war.
"Well that's entirely possible. Is the intention that the two of us" Romilda's eyes glanced at Korina "will be working together" that would certainly be interesting. Romilda's experience with other scions was mostly with the male of the species, who tended to have the IQ of a jock hit too many times in the head with a hammer, and thought they were Odin's gift to women. It would be nice to hang around with the pretty woman.

"If you could brief us with what you know. Locations. Places. The names of dogtags of anyone who survived an encounter... all of those are just useful. I'd also like a letter detailing our orders in case we run into any problems with officious SS or anything"

Re: Hoping for Peace, we wage war.
- "And of course the most important question: Why would we do this task?"

Korina tiled her head slightly as she regarded Tedrick.

- "Correct me if i'm wrong, but sending two Scions behind enemy lines to find a Scion working for the Allies does sound somewhat... peculiar. As as miss Romilda mentioned, we would need to know which operational limitations we must adhere to."

Re: Hoping for Peace, we wage war.
Romilda agreed whole heartedly with Korina. As a result of her success she'd probably made enemies. Not many becuase she was careful about that sort of thing, but some people would feel threatened just by her elevation to power. That was one reason she wanted the paperwork. There were others including the reason she gave. This though 'do something outside your normal remit' especially behind enemy lines, easily had the potential to be a trap for themselves

She should probably find out some more about the stunning Miss Sideris as well she decided

"Apart from being a legislator, Korina, If we do find ourselves in a violent confrontation with some enemy Scion are you skilled with that sword? I myself am not very familiar with violence on a personal scale"

Re: Hoping for Peace, we wage war.
Korina gave Romilda a simple nod in response.

- "I do have some degree of skill, though a sword is not a gun, and while my profession is suited to investigation and interrogation, it is of little use outside of hearing range, and against those with little to no mastery of the language... Which i believe ties into the 'beyond enemy lines' part of our mission objectives."

She gave Tedrick an over-the-glasses look, waiting for him to respond to her concerns. The two of them seemed particularly ill-suited for a mission such as this one, and she'd be a bad prosecutor if she'd just allow herself to walk straight into this one.

Re: Hoping for Peace, we wage war.
"I think what my friend the prosecutor is saying" Romilda said simply "Is that you have the wrong girls for the job. There are a ton of dumb jocks that have been hit in the head one too many times by a hammer that would jump at the chance of shooting it out with a wannabee Apollo type"

"Perhaps there are other ways we can help. The war front has a wide front. There's a lot of opportunity there for us to assist"

"Their coming into territory we effectively control" He says with a sigh

"Thats why the enemy scion is there to resist our control were going through there to reassert it" he nods.

Re: Hoping for Peace, we wage war.
Korina tilted her head in response.

- "As much as i regret going into semantics out of professional habit... Please define 'effectively control'?"

OOC: Hmm.. Know what, i'm going to spend a Legend Point to use 'Blurt it Out' on Tedrick. It's my first Scion game, might as well practice a bit :P

Also, sorry Ama... It's not in her nature to agree to something without knowing the details. Her job and half her Knacks just won't allow it.

Re: Hoping for Peace, we wage war.
Romilda looked unconvinced. She still didn't know whether or not 'Tedrick' had actually the authority to tell them what to do. It would hardly be the first time that a Alliance Scion had impersonated an Axis Scion to force a waste of time. Time and the actions of Scion's were the most valuable thing in the Axis arsenal. She didn't know Tedrick from Adam other than by reputation, and Loki was hardly the only trickster on the planet

"We'll need a proper briefing" she said finally "Details of where he has been seen. Places. Times. Names of people who have seen him, or survived him. And we'll need instructions in writing"

Re: Hoping for Peace, we wage war.
Korina sighed. Freshly conquered territory might as well be on the Moon for all the good it would do to simply waltz in there and expect people to talk the language, German was going to be a red flag regardless of how many boots they had in the area.

- "More specifically, where is this territory? If we are to win the trust of the locals, it would be best to speak the local language and not openly associate with German troops."
