First contact in country

After nearly two weeks you recieve word as expected. The messages indicate a meeting at Pictus cemetery. A historical location of great importance to the Catholic community of Paris.
The meeting will occur during the day and you are instructed to meet at the grave of the General Marquees de la Fayette.

Ours is grave undertaking. Some of your fellows never arrived at their safehouses. ( Kanilas character who was in training and jumped with you). No we brought you here because this gentleman can get us floorplans for our Target. He needs our help first.

The contact number good head.SS troops have been pillaging cultural artifacts from throughout France. The Louvre Isa staging point for these operations. A particularly large and important shipment is set to leave in two nights. We have the routeand are the resistence is staging a hijacking of the shipment. The attack will have to be well coordinated and swift. We need your group to take out the sentries at a guard post just outside Paris and assume their position to stop the convoy. Resistence operators will sneak up and kill the drivers and occupants of the middle vehicles in the convoy. Another group will destroy the rear truck which will be full of soldiers. The first vehicle will also be full of soldiers. K understand one of you is good with explosives? If so we want a trap rigged to take out that vehicle if they are alerted otlr when the back vehicle is blown by grenades.

We have full plansfor your target and can provide some support with intelligence survaillence and and man power if needed for your operation.

The dark of night had fully set in. Though a partial moon shone brightly in the sky, the dense forest prevented nearly all light from reaching the forest floor.
Cool afternoon temperatures, continued to drop and a moisture could be felt gathering on the plant life. A flashlight flickers on and off in the distance on the far side of the road,
indicating the resistance was in place for their part of the operation. The SOE agents each dressed in dark clothing, and ash on their faces remain concealed
in their waiting locations.
Off Topic
Please make a concealment check for each character.
Also, You may want to role play someone signaling each of your party if you are separated by more than a whispers distance.
A signal may also want to be sent back to the resistance indicating you have received their message.


Not far off the edge of the road can be seen. Moonlight clearly illuminating its edges and major contours. Fifty meters from your current position a single guard shack can be seen. Its interior illuminated by the flickering light of a candle or two.
A German soldier can be seen sitting in the shack, some sort of news paper moving in his hands as he gestures with it. Another soldier is dimly light outside the shacks window. A red glow moving erratically before returning periodically
to illuminate the solders face has he takes a puff off the cigarette. The night is silent and not a single vehicle has passed since your arrival. Curfew and the restrictions on civilian travel mean that the sound of any approaching vehicles will
be military. The resistance signaled nearly an hour ago that the convoy left the Louvre Museum, they should be arriving in another 20-50 minutes.
Off Topic
You can not see if the soldier in the shack is armed, but the one outside has the silhouette of an automatic rifle slug across his back
Also please make a roll or rolls for preparing your explosives. Choose whatever skills you think are appropriate as I want to give a chance to level multiple skills.

Benny hunkers down between the roots of a large oak and starts to organize his explosives. Looking up at his companions, he asks them,
"How do we communicate when out of range of each other? Whistles?"

significant time passes as the cold of the nite sets in. The german guards take turns inside the booth and ocassionally take breaks to smoke. Eventually a signal comes in from your forward scouts letting you know the convoy will be arriving in about 15 minutes. The time to take out the guards and rig the explosive charges has arrived. The resitence members signal they are ready to attack as well and take out the middle vehciles. Your job is to stop the lead vehicle and blow the rear truck which should hose the german troops escorting the shipment.

Benito is able to move quietly to the side of the road 10m from the guard who is in the other side by the shack. Nearing his pivot to come back.

The two guards fall to the ground as two shots ring it almost simultaneously.
Spoiler:
Now to prepare the trap. You are to stop the front vehicle and destroy the last one in the line with explosives. That is where the guard escorts are supposed to be riding. The resistance will fall in and take it the people in the other vehicles. It at least that is the plan.

"Well time to get dirty." He says quietly more to himself as he grabs two of the dynamite sticks from his bag. Using his fighting knife he quickly digs a hole deep enough to hide the dynamite in, what he hopes is the most likely place the truck will stop.

He covers the area as best he can, including the small trench for the wires leading to one of the plungers the Resistance lent him for the job.

Satisfied it was as good as he could do for the moment, he takes the last stick into the guard shack, playing the wire out the window opposite the road side. "Hey Gavin, Blaise. What do you think, bring one of the bodies in here and lean it against this charge to act as a slight buffer to direct the blast outward a little more? Probably should place the other one in a chair just outside the door."

Blaise, searches the other trooper finding two additoinal grenades and an automatic rifle with several magazines of ammunition. He props the body up against the barrier getting it to sloch in somewhat standing possition. "I dont think this will fool them for long, hope those explosives do the trick. I am ready to move out when you are."
