Default The Lafayette Cemeteries (Mon. 4/2/07)

Here's the lay of the land, close up and zoomed out. You'll be going to Lafayette Cemetery #2 first, because it's closer to the house you're in/about to leave.

On the zoom out map, the little red circle by Loyola/Tulane Universities is the present meeting place. The big red circle is where Camille et al. are going. We'll stipulate that you've all exchanged the relevant contact info with the other scouting party and anyone else in the current Kindred power structure as needed.

Jocelin knows that the buildings closest to Washington Ave. are pretty well maintained, but that as you get farther into both cemeteries from that direction you'll encounter increasingly poorly kept up tombs. Anyone trying to hole up in the cemeteries will almost surely do so in the buildings in poor repair.

Personnel right now are the 4 PCs and Sarah. Jack will be ranging a bit afield from the cemeteries to start out, as SD mentioned in the previous thread. Leo is free to do the same (or not) as he sees fit.

Does anyone want to enter the cemetery proper?

Maps given below:

The Audobon area south of Loyola University (opposite side of St. Charles St) looks like a good place to recruit bats.

OK, that's fine. It'll take one application of The Beckoning to summon some bats, one application of Sweet Whispers to tell them to follow you to the cemetery, and a second Sweet Whispers to give the instructions once you arrive on site.

Also, will there be any splitting up the party (i.e. Jack and possibly Leo go to the Audubon grounds separately)?

There's a bit over an hour's worth of walking between the house and the cemeteries and back if you did that. That would leave maybe an hour and a half for scouting and deploying animal watchers. You could also drive and park some place just off Washington Ave between the two cemeteries to cut down on walking if you wanted to do that.

My vote is we just take the bus or other convenient public transportation if available, otherwise drive

OK, I just rolled a 7 for Jocelin's Area Knowledge check, so she knows an expedient way to get from near campus to the cemetery by bus. It'll be about 15 minutes each way, and it's probably easiest to just walk between the two cemeteries themselves, they're only about 8 blocks apart, so maybe a 10-15 minute walk.

It does occur to me that: a) It might be kind of hard to take a Nossie on the bus (security cameras are NOT fooled by low-level Obfuscate) and b) It might be equally hard to take bats on board a bus. Factor these things into your deliberations.
