Ow

 

After my first games I was failry perplexed about what jsut happend. I have never dealt with such an issues before. I generally spend my days pickpocketing or sipping a fine wine hear and therie but this kind of issue was violent to some other next level. My impression was that we go and find information. Not make things safe. I was jsut suprised by all of the events that took place. Most of my time was spent trying to make sense of this new world that I have come to understand.

The other major problem was that I was in a great deal of shock over the murder that happened. I have never seen some thing like that before my very eyes. I next began to practice and train. I know that my skills were nothing like the others I enountered. I made sure to begin a workout regieme that was kept me in a better shape so I was able to move quickly and fire with ease.

Once I found a better way to move. I now have figured out a way to get through all of this. Now that I got the van working I can start looking for a better score. I know there was a great place to get some diamonds but the couple is to nice. I really dont want to hassle. I have decied to go with the corparte store. I think that this will be a better use of my time as I can get through all of this easier and they can just pay for it through insurance.

Another night

It's been a while since I actually wrote in this journal. I was suprised by what I have accomplished in all that time. I still am but I will have to take some time to think back between what happened after that contract to what I have done getween the time. So from what I remeber I lost because I left the mansion. I guess I should have shot them and tried something else. After that I got back in my van and started to move around from place to place looking for another score.

Mind you I dont do drugs and drink or anything like that. I like to steal from people. Yes yes you can call me a bad person but what if I told you that many times these people that I do take from have stolen from other and hurt people? These large organizations make so much profit especially the musems they have large donation that they use for so man nefarious schemes. I can not begin to tell you how bad it has become.

I generally take my time and look for a muesm that is large but there was a smaller musem nearby that had the right type of foolery. The owner had taken art form an old man and used it to fund his new enterprise so I decided to take everything that he had.

I need a good distraction so I decided to use terminets people hate bugs I tell them there is a infestation and we made a mistake and need to sweep the area. All free. That is the big important part dont charge ir you have to work for a living. They never like that.

The van broke down

After my excitement of finally being able to win I completly forgot about my van. It is a 89 Ford and it tends to break down at times. I have tried ot get it fixed a few times but after a while mechanics either refuse to work on it or want to charge me thousand to maybe repair where this might work or this could be the right thing. I really have no idea how to fix a car or how to do anything so I have to get creative and try things that might not be the best advice to give to well anyone.

 

This week it was the oil. This thing leak oil like no tomorrow. It always has a leak somewhere and it always happens in the wrong spot. So nornally you takr the vehical in and the shop repairs it. They wanted 3,000 to look at the thing. Now I am not a car guy but that sounded like a alot of money to fix a stupid oil leak. So I did what any person that is low on cash would do. I bought more oil and lots of duct tape. Yes you heard me. I bought it and then wrapped it around anything that I could find.

 

So the issue with this is that duct tape doesn't do well with road conditions and lots of heat. Or the idea of doing lots of stops and starts so I have to re duct tape many area so that is a pain. But it is easier that one might think. Oh and I was able to get my hands on a Picasso. It was pretty easy but I never knew the cops wanted it so bad maybe that shouldn't leave pricelesss art hanging around.

After the fall

IT took me a great deal of time and ability but I found this place where I can rest. I am stuck in the past and I have no idea about how I am going to get out. I barley have enought food to get out but I do know there is this small dinsaur that is following me. Turn out my rations were slwoling slipping away and I befriended it after a time and gave it the rest of my food. I decided to call it Gwell she is a great creature. Powerful and fast.

So the first thing that we had to figure out is a place that is safe and far away from all the lizard men. There were crawling all over the place. I needed a place to lay low while I figured out a way out. I took my time and creeped out of there. They did not notice me. After a time I found a way to get out and we found a small cave. We got food and water for a few days but it does not last for very long.

The problem became that we would run out of food and were were attacked multiple times. I even befriended a tiger that was helpful for a time. Gwell got inrued pretty badly I had to help a few times and I didnt want to use my gun until I had to. I even made a bow out there. It was survivable but I will always now be much more careful when cutting paitings on contracts because you never know where you are headed.

The world went black

I dont think I have ever upset a person like that. After the big loss I had to console myself. I did not bring back the items so I needed to find something that I could do. I knew that it would take time for me to figure it out, but I wasnt sure what I would do next. The van has been working well for the last few days and I just needed to replace a tire. I spenth the next could days trying to figure out a better heist. I know that I need to get a hold of egyytian artifacts. I am told that the Goddess Nephyses had multiple items stolen and they are all over the world.

 

I found that one of her necklases was left in the egyptian musem and was on display. The hard part is when everyone is watching. It is better to get these things when they are in transit or are being fixed the back office has tons of materials and way less camera's. So I found my way to the musem getting in is easy taking the item can be the hard part. These big musems dont take kindly to power outages or any of that sort of thing. So I needed a big distraction. Fire is bad that gets the authories. But if an donation is made to a school and there are children everwhere and some how that got sugar and soda. Things get broken. So the neclakce was tane to the back room and I was able to swipe an ID card and away I went. I replaced it with a decent forgery. Rarley doesn the real thing go out there and they would never admit to a stolen peice of merchandise.

Another loss

After thos loss I had to find a way to bid my time. I have been having trouble getting what I need done. I jsut dont know what I need to do some times. I was clear but that does not always create what I want. This week. I want to spend more time getting items that I need. I really have a desire to make my life better. Living in a van is great but the cops always need to ask multiple questions that I really dont feel like answering or spending time in jail again.

So I need to find a way to make money that will get me out of debt and a way that I dont end up out of my mind. My goal here is to be wealthy enough that I dont need to think about the things that I need. I should get some sort of crew together. People that can help me get what I need. It will be a small crew that can help me get certain pieces of art that can be moved easily. I figure three comptent people would do it. I have to be careful who I hire and how I go about it.

I go through my contact and have found nothing so far. I will keep looking at figure a better place to live than the side of the street. My next big socre is around the corner. But I need to use the money to funnel my dreams and not some ones elses.

Another day

Today was interesting. I met a wolfman and got out of the submarine. Now on to my next adventure. I have been looking at working with some people to start a fellowing of people in the know. These folks all have specific skills and are able to work together. I need certain capable folks and a good plan. I dont want this to get out so yea. I have heard of a guy Mikey that can creat wonderful paintings pretty easily. He has the know how and the smarts but I need to watch his other habits.

 

Next there is Bill he can drive anything be it a truck car or tank. He has an odd miltart background and wont talk about why he left so his past remains odd. Lastly and more importantly there is Janus out tech guy he can figure jsut about any system but hes hard to get a hold of as he lives near the artic and does not like people. So I have to approach his carefully. My plan is to get them to work together but each of them have issues and a past so I need ot find some thing that will interest them that is not all about money. I know millions is great but these folks need more motivation that is not material. They are pretty young so they need a reason to work with me. I would like to know what they want and how we can work together. I have a few places that would be a great start but I need to get them working as a team. The first person I will contact is Bill. We need to get around easily.

Another day in the life

Today I am tracking down a driver that can help me in my many heists. The main issues is trying to get these people to work for an organization that does not exists not earns them real money and can land them in prision. So you tend to look for people that are down on their luck or are desperate these peopel do not make good long time employees and can hurt an operation more than help it. I tend to be careful who I work becuse the last group got me in prision and that can be a real pain.

 

This time around I think it is best that I am in charge of the group so if there is some kind of problem then I know who to blame. So When I talk to these people I need them to know there is always risk but we make sure that there are rules and we change how we do things. One of the things I have noticed is that police are careful with descriptions so we want to change out apperance and not be noticed. I will have to work on that later. For now I need to recruit the driver.

 

Bill has a wierd military background. He says he was in for 20 years but they say he didnt exist. I told him I'd look at it. It turn out he changed his name and social a few years back and I found that he's got a retraining order from his wife that is going to make it impossible for him get wit hthe program. I told him he can work with me while I sort it out. He has a year. I think that;s what it will take for court costs and laywer fees to pay me back. The hope is to keep him permenant.

next person

Bill was an easier person to get. Well atleast longer than any of the other people I have talked. He had some issues but not more than the others. As I sit and think who was the most difficult I would have to say Mikey. He is renown artist and could make just about anything that you would like or wish. He has worked in the criminal empire most of his life. He has done so with out doing a day in prison or dealing with the cops.

He says he has his great and powerful system. Yea if I had money to burn and the connections he had you would have little problems as well. He knows these peopel and what he can get from others. So I will have to say what he wants is difficult first you have to pass all his tests to see if you are not a rat. He had someone kidnapp and see if I would squeal. I was amzed. Then he was something of value to you. No not money something you could never replace. You know like your child. Like he keeps it. I gave him something I dont want to discuss. Once this was all established he then want you to get him something of value. Something that could fetch a huge fortune. But he end up keeping. I was amazed by all this and did what was asked. I then was able to get the vase that he requested. He then wanted 100 pound of cocaine. This was the thing that got me. He like cocaine and used it all the time.

Artic Exlporation

Idea for Book I'm crazy and its fucking cold. Good title right? I like how it has its own twist and is completley insane. I have been working with multiple people to get up to the Anartic. Belive it or not people actualy dont want to be there. Wierd huh? The first problem is getting people to help you out there. The number of permits for a tourist is unreal. I was able to secure passage after a weeks and some bribes. Everyone wants a peice of it. Once I was able to get out there I went to try and find Janus. There isnt a real street address and the storms make it hard to find anything.

 

After a few days of searching I found her research station which was a few degrees of from the map. I am assuming she did that on purpose. It was also evident that she was not there. I sent her a message and she wanted to know what I wanted. This is the problem with anti-social people that have no social skills. I reminded her that I was here to talk to her about a job and we were scheduled to meet. She wanted to meet tomorrow. So I got to camp in the snow for a full day. She comes out later that day and invites us in after one of us develops forstbite.

 

She lets us stay there and was able to chat. I told her I wanted her to join our team and help us with some tech issues. She didnt want it and told us to go. This wasnt going to be easy. Looks like I have another contract. To be continued...

Team Assembled

Today has been a great day. I finally got the team assembled.I have arranged with our computer expert to continue to work remotley while upgrading her facilties. She also wanted a substantional amount of information in the crew. But to know their diteray habits was a bit far fetched. She wanted to know essentially who was vegan. We were able to get the information and start planning our first heist. What we needed was a good score around pilos. We find that banks are rather prickly and that musems are almost always end in disaster. One things that was qute interesting is the amount of art in private collections with little to know security. I decided to start with some of the smaller homes and go from there.

 

The process was simple we find a target and then replace the object with a forgery. Then we would sell the real one on the black market for a great amount of money. So if everyone did their part then we would do well. The first time was a botch job. The car we were using was not working the connection the internet was not established. The information we had about the house was wrong. So when we need to get out own information and keep this in house. The more we rely on other people the worse it gets. NExt time we will be more prepared and we will be ready.

Next week we should be able to get started on a Van gough we have been watching for a few weeks.

Now things are rolling

Now that the crew has been assembled it is time to make some real money. We started with pidgen forge and we needed to case a few houses. These were easy enough some of these folks are loaded. After some time we were able to amass a fortune. This really changed the groups perspective on out little adventure. Now that we are able to move the art work out and about I can live a better life.

Right now I live on a farm. Now I can live where ever I want I a skyrise a utopia. Money is not longer an issue. Now I dont have to live in van unless I want to. This is a better day for me. I spend some time trying to get an idea of my new world and what I want. The first thing Ithink about is getting a mansion that is amazing where I can house my things and continue my activites as they were. My next thing is making sure that we have a realy grave for Alexandra and a place to morn her loss. This was a sad thing and I truly did not need this now.

 

My next important thing is to get a place for Gwell she needs open spaces and a place to be herself my bag is stuffy and hard to breather for her. I wanted a large open space that she could play and not feel tied down to jsut one place. This would be better for all of us.

After the incidents I need to do something about the young girl sarh Morris. She is a sweet girl caught up in a bad place. I wanted her to find a better place and not treated like some monster. She also had a penchant for learning. I think the first think I need to do was get a her a room. I used the one at the mansion and let her decorte the way that she wanted so she could have her own place that was one that she could call her own.

the next thing I needed to do was explain my life and that I find myself in unsual situations. I wanted to explain that I need to do things and have people here that are anything but ordinary. I want her to be brave and able to find a place in all this. I do tell her to stay away from these people. The next thing we need to work on is her schooling. I really would like her to go to public school but if anything gets out well Its would be a problem. How do i eplain this girl from Scotlan that I adopted. For now I think a private tutor will be best. Once things settle down and I know more about theses schools then I can get her into something more public that wont ask alot of questions.

 

Now I have been thinking about having a part at the home once we ger things set up. Who to invite.

Babbling of an old man

Sometimes you get this feeling that people are put to get you sometimes you jsut dont. After helping Connor with his project I was able to figure out what needed to be done with these people. I need to win these more often not less. I have found out that sometimes only one person can win and that is the problem. Only one can win everyone else gets basically nothing. The real shame here is that you cna do whatever it takes. I could have killed them all and still won. I have many fewer allies. But I would have won. The flip side is now I have a tattoo that can help me with lockpicking. I do need to start getting those items again. The louve does not wait for any person.

 

This whole game is starting to get to me. I dont get what we would have to really do to make it happen. Do we jsut keep going risking our lives for all this power? It really does not make sense.

I digress it is time to start planning for my future. I have the mansion set and the money moving but I need to protect myself. I am going to throw a part this will atleast get the word out. We will need to start looking for talent that can work toward our goals and not let it rest. Our next goal is now trying to figure what should be done with the rest and how to deal with them.

Scrolls?

So edgar went back in time and found some information for me apprently. We spent a great deal of time with each other at the mansion. One of the larger problems is that we jsut dont like each other. He eats humans and I eat well kale and walnuts mostly. I eat some chicken but I try to stay health conscince for the betterment of my health. So Edgar comes by asking about a portal. I have no idea about making or finding a prortal. He keeps nagging me about it. The only way I know to get about is though theses games.

 

So I start looking and one Idea is that I jsut take him with me. This may or may not be best idea but atleast we can find a way around for him. It was any intersting expereince. With Edgar there I did give him a room partially because I dont want him digging up the yard and the also I want to treat people fairly. I also had word that his room was made into a bit of a mess. I have told housekeeping to avoid that room no sheets and no blankets. I dont want it tracking all over the house.

One of the things we did was play pool for a while that was honestly delightful. I have not played in ages. It was a sight to see. It was nice to Edgar out and about in the house but I wonder what he is really up to.

Radiation

I ran into my first problem with radiation. The meds first taste horrible. I finally was able to get back home. In that time we had our games. That was a fun time we had many people show up and enjoyed the fastivites we were able to get something going. I wish we could have gotten more people to come and enjoy the party but I belive that most people could have not gotten there due to the lack of portals and living in a different world or what have you.

 

So first up was the fastest contractor these folks were fast! We had many people enter the contest and try it was intesting to see who was the actual fastest. Connor gave it his best and was very quick. Later at night it was a few people with Benny. Now that one can run he was on the other side of the property before I could say or do anything. It was as fast as you could get.

 

It was great having Keith play some music he was quite charming. Next was the eating contest which Edgar tried to show me up. But I guess it was what was needed. I did won and had to chew on some bones. That was hard on my teeth. We had some other things go on but not much else.

 

It was of note that we needed to figure that the part was quite a sucess. I was quite proud of what we did and hope to do it again.

Time Keeps on Slipping

Chama needed some help finding his bag I spent some time looking around trying and looking to find out what honestly happened to his stuff. After a while we could not find anything. This was the true problem and I wanted to spend ore time with him but he seemed annoyed with riding in the chopper and the brunch caviar the butler served so we went on out way.

 

My next little adventure was more of a problem. I have always hated the prision system and its lack of reform. They have no idea what they are doing to these people. Really that only make better ciriminals. I should know. I learned more about getting away with crime than any skills set. Sure they tried and did a wood shop but mostly we just made shanks.

The current family wanted to have a word with me. I saw that we had a connection with them and wanted to see if I could make a better connection and solve a few problems. I have a few of my guys in prison and they are doing there time and there familes are comterable but there have been a few squirmishes that I have not been comfterable with. I want them to have protection and to be able to move product and make some money in there while helping out the family. I have offered to help them with transportation as needed to give them more discrection.

 

They did make an offer that was interesting if I can get there competioin off the docks then I could use that for a bas of operaations. That would help with my operation as I would have to pay less people to look the other way.

a blessing

After we were able to finally figure aout a way to get a deal setup with the mobsters I wanted to find a way to find the equipment and those of the godess. These became more of an issue than I thought. In all told theses are sacred items and not easy to catch. I wanted to figure out the best way to go about this. I know that these people are not the best to deal with so what I needed to do was create a distraction. This was know easy task. I brought Moon along with me as back up she had plenty of good ideas and was able to get there attention while we tried out best to make a distraction.

 

My plan was simple make a relica of the shoes and replace them with fakes. We ordered up a party and did a free money event and place ballon everywhere. I found a large problem with the shoes as there were attached to a wire and there were on some meachanism. This added to the other issues as there gaurds every where. I had no idea how to work the device so I took some time and prayed to her so that she would give me strength. The goddess had told me about a remote that I look to find and use to trun it off. I became the night and moved quirlty into the security room. I waited until it was my chance and then took the remote.

 

Once that was done I was able to easily switch out the item. This made things much easier. However after some investigation I found the tracker and put that back with the otehr shoes. We left and then I had to deal with the those aliens....
