Andrew enjoyed the photo-op for the press, not being shy about sticking his mug in every camera shot he could. He was also very verbose, talking to the reporters and 'helping' them out with all the details about the raid (carefully trying to avoid the fact that he arrived pretty much after it was all over). The next day he checked the papers carefully, hoping to have a good mention and better yet a captioned photo of himself.
After this he sets to work on the less glamourous but still necessary paper-work.
He then does some foot-work, trying to track down all the info he can about The One Who Got Away, "The Basque". He will also help in the questioning of the arrested criminals, especially to see if they have any dirt on crooked Prohibition Agents.
Okay; here's a quick run-down of things learned/happening throughout the month of September for the Prohibition Agents:
-Orrie, Neals and (to a lesser extent) Band do indeed find themselves in the newspapers; with the Republican (current Governor)/Mob-tied paper: The Lakefront City Tribune burying the story on the 7th page; making it seem like the Agents had only taken down a small still for some small-time bootleggers. In particular; thier own boss; District Commissoner Michael Anthony saying how he was disapointed that the raid was "...not conducted in the proper manner..." and in essence; alluding that while he was happy some illegal bootleggers means of producing alchohol was stopped; he thinks it only put some small timers out of buisness.
-Meanwhile; the Democratic-backed paper (and fiercely anti-mobster); the City Star; featured the agents much more prominently (to the point where Beck chasties all of you to be MUCH more carefull in the future; you don't want to be TOO much of a visible target) and spends most of the article railing agaisnt the corruption of the current administration and how much DC Anthony needs to go.
-As the month drags on; Beck and Band's injuries heal up nicely; and the three younger agents all go on several dates:
-Orrie manages to get dates with no fewer than 3 great-looking ladies; only to strike out with all 3...
-Sal finds a girl who he likes and likes him and the two have gone to the "flicker show" several times and for a couple of meals. Things may be getting serious...
-Johnny dates a couple and gets lucky; but then either he or they or both get bored quickly...
-Neals seems to be in the middle-ground of "should I or shouldn't I keep going out with her"...with a pair of young ladies.
-In crime/Agency related news; Beck gets even more of the "cold shoulder" from Anthony and most of the department; though he doesn't much care.
-"Ernie the Elephant" Fabrinni gets 10 years in the State Pen.; but he stays true to the Gangster-code and says nothing.
-Lars Svenson says nothing; and gets 2 years in the slammer; his buddy "Billy" Ricketts sings and pretty soon; the Tolino mob cuts all ties with "The Miller Brothers" Trucking Agency.
-"Weasel Valdacci" is transferred over to the County Prison due to some outstanding issues in which he's a wanted suspect; and is "killed trying to escape". Beck's 99% sure this was due to the Tolino's having no faith in his ability to keep his mouth shut; and thier using the political machine to arrange for his transfer.
-Hans Mueller is deported back to Germany; mostly for his own protection.
In Game terms: all of the characters gain 10,000 xp and have 100 bucks to buy stuff with before Scenario Two for these characters begins. You are all now Level 2 and may use the XPs for skills or save them as you will. Your existing skill improves; I'll make the adjustments on the character thread.
Also, feel free to spend the money however you like.
