1. Write a Letter to Mr Whitman requesting a Very Valuable Cargo™
2. Arrange the overnight stopover and publicise it by arranging through official channels
3. Get Elder Kendred, Chief Orc whoever and maybe 1 more unimpeachable witness set up in the hide
4. Observe Robbery (hopefully)
5. Demonstrate that Persons Unknown have moved the VVC to the Trade Bank vaults in a suspicious fashion.
Anything else? Edit as required, JJ and Dan from notes.
Heist Planning – Part 2.
Okay, now we have proof that the consignment has been mysteriously tampered with, on to the next stage of the plan.
1. John retreats to the Hidden Coin casino, where the Anti Magic zone protects him from scrying.
2. We get someone to perform the Magic Map Ritual, using Johns Holy Symbol as the link item. This should point towards the location of Roy, hidden in the box they have stolen.
3. If the box is still in the city (as we believe it should be in the bank) this will be shown on the Map, and we can then meet up to remove the box from the area it is held in.
4. With our friendly senior Tax man, we recover the box, showing it to him as proof that it is the same box he inspected.
5. We can then perform “Object Reading” upon the box to see the face of the person who brought it into the storage location.
6. John uses the image he saw to create a “picture” of the person who stored it, using Prestidigitation, to see if anyone recognizes them.
That’s about where My planning ends. What are we missing?
