    "There's no mistakin' it-... That's Creed's voice." Songbird sighed after the recording wound to its end. He had hoped he might hear Kitsune's own voice, but he would have to be satisfied with another lead.

    Sorry for not responding earlier.

    Does Songbird have any idea who Freddy or Marv might be?
    If I need to roll, I will. I'll even spend a Willpower on it.

    Big Tom shrugs and says, "I wonder if Freddy is the Darkling from the other night at the arcade, the one who knew Imere." He looks at his companions, trying to judge Reggie and Sebastian's thoughts.

    First off, sooooo the use of the word "Kindred" was just a typo on my end, probably relating to me having been working on my VtR game around the same time. The word "Kindred" should have been "Changeling". Obviously, that completely changes the implications of the recording, and I apologize if I was getting your hopes up with a cross over so early.

    @Ohiska: Songbird knows that Marv is another high ranking member of the Night Revelers, a Beast who is both a butcher and a Chef in one of the fancier French Quarter restaurants. He is very close with Creed from what Songbird can tell.

    "Marv-... I think I know that guy. Or, know of him, at least. He's a Reveller and some kind of fancy chef. One of Creed's cronies. No idea who 'Freddy' is, though." Songbird absentmindedly looked through Kitsune's playlist to see if he could find anything else of interest. If nothing else, he narcissistically hoped to find some of his own music there.

    ”The proverbial plot thickens.” Tom grumbled, crossing arms over his broad chest. ”Do you know what restaurant this…Marv is employed at?”

    ”I would imagine that the owner of the arcade would be the easiest target to approach first. Provided we can ensure he is not able to warn his partners in crime. Perhaps we could abduct them one by one and question them together?”

    Reggy looks from one face to another to another with dawning alarm. It was never a good sign when he was the one doing the thinking. 'Forget Marv, he's a loyal solider, the type that'll murder innocents just because he's told to. Men like that don't roll over easily. The loyal lackey won't help us, but I'm surprised Freddy said no to them.
    'Freddy... I'd have said that man had no spine at all, if he said no to Creed he either had good reason... Or was even more afraid of someone else. Either way, I think he's the one we need to speak to next.'

    ”Let us be on our way then.” Tom said, shifting slightly to rest a hand calmly on the hilt of his hedgespun blade. If intimidation was the order of the day, then he would be in his element.

    (OOC: As always sorry for the delay in response)

    It was fortunately just a short walk from Annie's store to the Arcade on Magazine street. The arcade has just opened up when the Changelings arrive. The bright sunlight outside is contrasted by the dark and stuffy room filled with flashing and beeping game consoles. Entering the arcade, the group can see that the space is practically abandoned, except for a greasy looking teenager in a trucker hat and stained t-shirt. His patchy mustache fails to hide his freckles and acne, and he looks up from the video on his cellphone to ask dully, "Can I help you? Machines are over there if you want to change cash for tokens."

    He shrugs, not even drawing his attention away from his phone enough to register confusion. "I'm sorry," he says as his eyes refixate on the screen, "I'm not sure what you mean by that."

    Hanging on the wall are a series of small framed photos, each depicting the Mask of the Changeling Freddy in dim lighting and washed out flash. Plaques below each photo read off accolades such as, "Tekken High Score", "Master of Master Blaster", and "Revolutionary Dance Dancer".

    Sebastian reaches across the counter to the boy, grabs the phone from his hand and, with a gentleness that juxtaposes the virtual theft he committed, sets the phone face down slightly more than an arm’s length away from the boy.

    “I can be clearer. Freddy. Get him, now please, and ask him to come here.”

    "Whoa man, whoa! Jeeesus!" the man says in a surprised blubbering Southern drawl. He looks up at the wall behind him, and points at the rows of photos. He says with some confusion, "You mean that guy? He doesn't live here or anything... he just has the high score on like every machine. He's got like no life and is pretty much always here." The kid reaches for the phone, though it's too far away, so he adds, "I'm sure he will be here in a few hours, but if you really want, I can get you his number or something."

    "Woah, man! Take it easy-... There's no need to frighten the poor kid." Songbird turned to face the teenager, offering him a reassuring smile. "Thanks for the help, man. We just want to talk to Freddy about some personal business. My friend here's just-... it's not been his day, y'know?"

    "I suggest we wait for him here." The avian changeling turned to the rest of the Motley. "Say-... That 'Revolutionary Dance' game looks pretty fun. Anyone wanna try it out with me? Gives us something to do while we wait, yeah?"

    Could I roll Persuasion + Manipulation to try and reassure the kid? Make us seem less suspicious and/or threatening. I think that's an appropriate dice-pool for it. I'd understand if you would want to add penalties to it, of course.

    Persuasion 2 + Manipulation 2 = 4

    (OOC: Assuming Sebastian lets go and backs off when the others intercede...)

    The kid behind the desk stumbles back just a little, his eyes darting from Sebastian with wide eyed fear to the others. Fortunately, the silver tongues of Songbird and Reggie have a calming enough affect on the man and he says, "Sure, sure. Give me just one minute to pull it up."

    He shuffles to the computer, his face suddenly lit green by an abused black Dell monitor. After a few minutes of mouse and pad work, the teenager grabs a piece of printer paper and begins writing. Once finished, he pushes the paper across the desk to Songbird, and says, "There. I've uh, even put the address he registered with down. We cool now?"

    Sure enough, a phone number and address are on the paper, written in a wavering chicken scratch.

    Sebastian maintains eye contact, letting the ripples of fear wash over him and blend with himself. He was...practicing. Keeping himself sharp. When the boy asked if they were “cool”, he nodded.

    “Like ice.”

    Reggy dials the number provided by the arcade employee. The line rings, and rings, and rings, never seeming to go to voicemail. Just when Reggy is about to pick up however, a voice comes on the other line, groggy and hoarse, "Hello?"

    'Good morning your majesty,' he said with a deliberately irritating amount of brightness 'Hope I didn't wake you.
    'We met a few days back, it's Reggy. I was there when you beat Imere at that dance dance... thing I'm Imere's...'
    He flounders for a moment looking for the right word, most unusual for him 'I was with Imere' he finished lamely 'And we need to talk.'
