Trieste, Italy
31 January, 1923

Having obtained another piece of the simulacrum, the Investigators board the Orient Express yet again and attempt to figure out what their next destination should be. But the decision is made for them as they unexpectedly arrive in Zagreb.

Dramatis Persone:
  • Edwin as Jean-Paul "Le Nez" d’Augustine;
    Gary as Lloyd Edwards;
    Jim as Zelda;
    Jonathan as The Keeper of Arcane Lore;
    Max as Hugo Sterling;
    Randall as Zebedee “Zeb” Peppin.

Trip Advisor: Zagreb

AVOID. Place is mad as a box of frogs (which incidentally were bloodied after a full on brawl with a group of mice, they alleged the mice started it). Porter was there to meet us at the station but proceeded to take us the most convoluted route through the city to the extent my wife asked if he was on a meter. Signposts appeared in mid air but were written in verse making the whole thing appear to be some convoluted treasure hunt when we just wanted to find the local swimming pool. Street cleaners were non-existent, as no one seemed to be doing anything about the milk rolling down the street or the ring one of our children found. When we returned the ring its owner just muttered some gobbledygook about talking to some women tied to Madonna! And the less said about the insights into arcane knowledge the better

Also no sign of McDonalds or where to find the Superhero capes the local children were wearing, so kids miserable
