Vampire the Masquerade V5 - Session Six - The Pasadena Problem (Part One)

I'm currently running a Vampire the Masquerade chronicle using the 5th Edition rule-set for a small group of fellow role-players...
Our campaign is set in Los Angeles and features a small group of Camarilla agents sent into the 'Free States' to search for ways to once again bring the Ivory Tower to dominance under the pretence of being disillusioned neonates looking for the freedom of the Anarch way of life...a life which they hopefully won't decide they like better...
Why LA? - Well it contains a lot of different baronies giving me a lot of interactions to play with, allows me to use some of the more interesting characters from the Bloodlines PC game (which two of the players were familiar with) and is a setting not yet experienced by the players familiar with the Vampire RPG which gives me a chance to keep them on their toes...I've also changed quite a lot and inserted some new characters of my own to make things a bit more interesting...

The now obligatory warning bit - Unlike my other RPG write-ups this one will contain swearing, sexual references and other references that might offend. If you can't tell the difference between real peoples opinions and grown-ups role-playing predators who crave blood then this probably won't be for you. I've also used actual photographs to represent some characters which I'll give acknowledgements to at the end if I've any idea who they are.

The introduction to this campaign and the first story can be found at the following links...

As I have written out introductions and dialogue for certain NPC's and some location descriptions I'll post these more or less as I wrote them so they'll be in a 'reading to the group' style...they'll also be in blue so you can tell them apart from the more traditional write-up sections and occasionally an obscure Malkavian premonition will turn up in purple. If I think something needs a bit of out of character explanation then those will get a storytellers note that will helpfully be in red...

With Elena's portrait returned to the Fortier's, the rogue thin-blood faction eliminated and their patron Marius seemingly satisfied that they had performed the tasks set by him adequately enough to warrant his supporting of their campaign the coterie turned their attention to establishing their business cover 'Galerie Sanguine' before proceeding to the next part of their plan. The coterie had spent some of that time pursuing their own agendas and also during that time had decided to meet the elusive Nosferatu 'Gary' to report that the innocent victim of the thin-bloods scheme who he had known as a mortal had been avenged at their hands.

Scene One - Going Underground
Caleb - Nosferatu Guide
You make your way to the slums of Hollywood to the location given as the contact point for the elusive Nosferatu Gary. You were told to ask one of the bums on the street for him by name and there is definitely no shortage of those nearby.

The task of speaking to one of the street people was delegated by Michael to Vin as he pointed out that he knew how to talk to 'such people' and Roach was in an unusually sullen mood that evening.

At the end of the alley was a pile of rags that they presumed had a person within and this particular alleyway made the rest of the slum seem positively inviting by comparison. Vin gave the pile what was by his standards a gentle tap with his foot.

"Well, well...a Rebel, a Jester and a Diva come a calling." the beggars human features disappear and the instantly recognisable face of a Nosferatu peers at you through a cloth hood. He bends down and opens a manhole cover with a key of sorts that appears and disappears back into his rags and slides it aside..."After you..."

After taking the time to psych himself up adequately Michael followed Vin through the hatch with Roach taking the rear but he made his displeasure at the turn of events obvious to everyone concerned.

The sewer is surprisingly wide and has an actual walkway along one edge though it's smeared with various pungent substances and unidentifiable stains and the shallow water flowing along the bottom of the sewer channel itself is exactly as pleasant as you'd expect. Your guide passes some openings while taking you down others and unlocks several rusty but still solid looking gates at various points with a large metal key-ring containing a wide selection of keys from new to barely held together by the rust.

In an effort to distract himself from the grim surroundings Michael desperately sought out something to occupy his attention that wasn't covered in crap but nothing immediately leapt out at him. Instead he decided to memorise which keys their guide used to open which doors as both a distraction and because the information might come in useful later. Michael noted that the guide seemed to be quite nervous in certain areas of the sewer network, looking right and left and checking behind the group as if expecting pursuit yet seemed perfectly happy in others. Both Roach and Vin also became aware that that were detouring around some quite large sewer sections before being bought back to a route roughly in line with their original course.

Michael decided to broach the subject of their guides nervousness but his enquiries were more or less deflected by changes of subject and even his attempts to get at an answer via subtle sideways approaches to the subject were failing. Vin who had also noticed that they were taking a roundabout route went with a more direct approach "So why aren't we taking a direct route then?" but got no reply. The Brujah who had a somewhat simpler idea about how to deal with people who wouldn't answer basic questions blocked the Nosferatu's path and repeated the question in a considerably less conversational manner. The sewer rat whom Roach had discovered was called Caleb then decided to offer them some explanation in preference to being stared at disturbingly intensely by Vin.

"About fifteen years ago the Sabbat made a move on Los Angeles and as they knew we supplied information to many of the factions within including...well...the Camarilla"  He seems almost apologetic about helping the Camarilla, but it isn't very sincere "They attempted to cut off this information network by separating us from the surface and driving us deeper underground by flooding the sewers with Tzimisce flesh-crafted monstrosities ranging from small hunters to gigantic monstrous things that damn near filled some of the tunnels" "We fought as best as we could but in the end retreat was our only option" 

"One of the Camarilla higher-ups, that asshole LaCroix I think sent some-one expendable down to investigate and find out what happened. Instead he found a network filled with those fucking things and then promptly surprised every-one by butchering his way through them to us. 

Gary thought he must be a fucking nutter burning through blood like he was, using every physical discipline you could think of and draining creatures dry as he went, Gary still calls him 'suckhead' now" He chuckles to himself but it's more a nervous than happy memory from the tone. "Well he helped us clear out a lot more but there were areas we didn't really want Cammy agents in so we finished off the job ourselves but now it looks like a few crawled into dark corners that we missed and every now and again they get fed up of rats and look for bigger prey. Not sure what the Tzimisce made them out of but vamp blood does them just fine as well, unfortunately"

Seemingly satisfied with the explanation they indicated that Vin should let Caleb continue guiding them through the complex underground sewer network. Roach enquired whether the agent of LaCroix still resided in Los Angeles and Caleb confirmed that he did and was doing quite well for himself. "As well as an Autarkis Gangrel perhaps?" enquired the Malkavian and though he got no response the change in his aura seemed to indicate that Roach had made the correct assumption. It also explained why Marius had been aware of the Nosferatu's enquiries about the dead bag lady Dolores 'Doll' Green if he and Gary had a past relationship of some kind. 

After some conversation with Caleb while the now alert for danger Vin was watching their surroundings and Michael was trying to avoid looking at them Roach tried to see if anything else about Gary and their Mawla Marius's relationship could be wormed out of Caleb. The only information he could get was that apparently Gary and Marius had been playing some bizarre game for decades where the Nosferatu would ask him to locate something useless but obscure and Marius would demand payment in some difficult to acquire but completely unimportant item in return. He also discovered that the Gangrel had offered to sort out the problem with the intruder in the sewers but that Gary had turned him down...

Eventually you reach a large chamber with a railing around a circular platform next to an old control panel with a card slot in the centre. No doubt state of the art in the past but archaic by modern standards. Your guide (Caleb) indicates you should stand on the platform before sticking a card in the slot and joining you. There's an extremely un-reassuring grinding noise and the platform begins to lower... "An old fallout shelter...well...till it collapsed" you are informed.

After a few minutes the elevator lowers you into an underground cavern piled with old machinery and a not insignificant amount of junk gathered from who knows where, much of the floor is metal presumably the collapsed shelter mentioned earlier. You can hear activity from a number of side passages but they're either too dark or have curving corners so you can't really see what's going on. Eventually you find yourself in a long room containing a table seemingly cobbled together from three different ones surrounded by a number of chairs, not one of which matches any of the others. Old movie posters featuring the many works of one Gorgeous Gary Golden fill one wall and a large mirror with a single crack running through it graces the opposite one. Caleb tells you to take a seat and disappears back the way he came...

The Brujah moved to the one entrance to the room to keep watch while Roach and Michael had a look around. In an effort to maintain some sense of etiquette Michael sat upon the least filthy of the chairs while Roach engaged in his usual activity of slightly rearranging things in other peoples havens in order to see if he got any reaction. The Malkavian's supernatural senses detected no defences and his scan for auras assured him that apart from the three of them the room was completely empty...he was of course completely wrong. 

Gary Golden - Nosferatu, former Primogen
"Greetings Boss, I hear you've been busy..." A tall Nosferatu in an expensive and immaculate dinner suit complete with bow tie is sitting at one of the chairs that was definitely empty a second earlier.

Storytellers Note - Even using V5's very generous interpretation of Auspex Vs. Obfuscate, Gary's Obfuscate and related attributes is way better than Roach's Auspex, waayyy better...

Michael started the conversation by introducing himself and the rest of the coterie and explained how they'd sought out and avenged the bag lady killed recently that they were aware Gary had been enquiring about. The number of film posters on the one wall confirmed Roach's theory that Gary was indeed the former actor Gorgeous Gary Golden which in turn made his relationship to the former child actress Dolores Green who had fallen on hard times make sense. In answer to his query about whether they had suffered Vin simply smiled ominously. 

Both Roach and Michael worked their way around the question of what Gary thought about the Camarilla by using references to the former Prince LaCroix rather than direct questions and were somewhat reassured that it seemed like his issue had not been with being told what to do by a Camarilla representative but rather being told what to do by any-one. Michael in particular became sure that if left to do what he wished below the ground he couldn't care less who made the decisions above. Having pushed the issue as far as they deemed safe the conversation moved to the fabled computer network of the Nosferatu known as Schrecknet.

Gary admitted that the presence of the second inquisition had meant that a significant increase in security was needed to maintain the integrity of the system and that in order to avoid drawing attention these upgrades had to be implemented subtly and slowly using equipment acquired from the most untraceable of sources. The upshot was that the system was not yet safe to use and would not be available for some time yet. Vin was however more interested in the blood-drinking creature blocking off areas of the sewer from the Nosferatu but was told by Gary that the matter was "In hand..." though both the other coterie members had doubts about the honesty of the answer.

"What with trying to get Schrecknet back up and running and some sewer areas needing to be reclaimed I'm currently resource poor...I am still however skill and information rich so perhaps I can show my gratitude in another way, Boss?"

Storytellers Note - As a reward from Gary I offered the players the choice of a free one dot skill, a discount on discipline training or a favour to be called in later as this was really the finale of the Three Murders story I figured I'd be generous as they'd done rather well.

Scene Two - The Vignes Commission
A handsome young man with curly dark hair and large intense eyes dressed in an expensive yet oddly archaic conservative suit has been wandering around the gallery for some half an hour but you can tell from his posture and the occasional nervous glance that he's waiting for something.

Roach immediately took an interest in the gentleman's somewhat shifty demeanour and using his particular abilities discerned that he was a kindred and from his particular aura more that likely of the Ventrue clan. It was immediately obvious to the Malkavian that he wanted something but was waiting for the opportunity to speak. Given that he was a vampire it seemed likely that he was waiting for the gallery to be absent of mortals before broaching whatever subject was on his mind. Roach made his way over to Michael and informed him that he might want to have a chat with the curly haired gentleman in question and sent a message to Vin to let him know that he might be needed.

Storytellers Note - Vin has the Illiterate flaw so the other characters have got around this in two inventive ways. Firstly they take pictures of relevant contacts so when his phone rings or when he needs to contact some-one he has a picture of their face as a reference and secondly they have a selection of images that Vin knows has a particularly meaning should they need to contact him via text. A picture of a paintbrush means 'head to the gallery', etc.

Michael approached the stranger and began to make casual enquires about whether he was looking to make a purchase. In response the kindred introduced himself. "My name is Henry Waters, I'm in the service of the Vignes estate" He leaned in a bit closer "Baron and Baroness of Pasadena and as rulers of this domain worthy of your respect of course." "is there somewhere we can talk privately?"
Michael directed Henry upstairs to the meeting room they used for their more exclusive clients and for the occasional planning session. Roach followed behind and a moment later Vin entered the gallery through the loading bay and made his way to the meeting room doorway where he adopted his usual guard position. Roach with his usual disdain for personal space and etiquette plonked himself in the seat right next the Ventrue and turned it sideways so he was staring directly at the side of his head.

Their guest apparently decided that getting straight to the point would be his best bet so he turned to Michael "You are the artist I presume?". the Toreador confirmed that this was the case and Henry continued "My mistress Vera Vignes would like a portrait of herself painted I presume you do such things?" "It would be normal financial transaction at whatever your normal rates for such things are of course, we're not asking for a boon. Perhaps you could also use it as an opportunity for you and your fellow kindred to all formally introduce yourself to Edward Vignes as introductions were previously done on your behalf by Mr Walker whom Edward finds...unsavoury... he leans in as if relaying some kind of secret 'an unfortunately necessary evil in a city filled with the weak...' I think were his exact words..."

Michael somewhat uncommittedly agreed that Marius was possibly an acquired taste and this seemed to satisfy Henry though Roach picked up that Marius's name seemed to cause a touch of jealousy to creep into the Ventrue's aura. "Excellent. is it satisfactory for me to make the arrangements for tomorrow evening or is that too soon?" A meeting was indeed arranged for midnight the following evening and their guest was escorted outside.

It occurred to Michael that a chance to get close to the Vignes family in order to look into the possibility of a change in management for Pasadena was almost too good an opportunity to pass up especially if he could persuade Vin and Roach to tag along with their respective expertise's in 'bypassing security' and 'target analysis'. Fortunately Roach was already on board with a meeting as he wished to discuss with the Baron the possibility of expanding their business operations in the area and knew that he'd need his co-operation to succeed as he effectively controlled all of the local politics within Pasadena. Vin for his part decided it might be a good chance to check out the Vignes families home security as he knew that Michael had been hinting about making a play for the barony of Pasadena at some point and that would more than likely involve a confrontation. While Michael paid a visit to one of his blood dolls, Roach decided to see what his new dusk-born friends and their leader knew about the Vignes family.

Interlude One - A Trip to the Pier
Jenna Cross - Dusk-born Baron
Roach was now a familiar sight to the thin-bloods and caitiff who saw the pier at Santa Monica as their domain so after a measure of socialising and a quick snack in the darkness beneath the pier courtesy of a lone pot-head the Malkavian made his way to the security office where their leader Jenna Cross mainly held court.

Storytellers Note - Routine feeding within their areas of expertise I tend to skim over as it can get tedious once they've role-played through it a couple of times.

Roach informed Jenna that as he'd discussed with her previously he was still trying to expand his groups influence and should he succeed Jenna's people would be welcome in any territory the coterie controlled but as the baron of Pasadena, Edward Vignes was a considerable obstacle he'd appreciate any information she had on him and his household. Seeing little to gain from withholding the information Jenna relayed what she knew.

Edward Vignes had arrived in Los Angeles from Boston and established himself in the comfortable manner he was used to. He controls the mortal politics of Pasadena very tightly using a combination of Presence and Dominate and the benefits of having money to fund the political campaigns of those who agree with him. He has a reputation of being some-one not to be trifled with though he also doesn't seem to go looking for trouble however Jenna also had heard that he seemed to have offensive resources or abilities not normally associated with a Ventrue without his own soldiers.

She told Roach that a group of kindred seeing Pasadena as an easy target having only three active kindred within it had made it known that they were going to take the barony for themselves. Armed to the teeth they had headed to the Vignes Pasadena mansion and were never heard of again. Since then he has been left alone with his only regular social companions being the Blount sisters in nearby Glendale and his own household of servants. Thanking her for the information he gave her his best regards and then returned to his haven though on his way back he made arrangements for The Cabbie to collect them as this would ensure there was no chance of them not arriving on time and instructed Vin to take only the most easily concealed items from his substantial armoury with him.

Scene Three - The Vignes Mansion
The Vignes home is a large Edwardian style mansion in one of the nicest districts of Pasadena with high walls and elegant cast-iron gates but no obvious security measures that you can see other than the aforementioned physical barriers. 

Arriving with plenty of time to spare the kindred transporter known as the cabbie dropped them at their destination before vanishing as abruptly as he'd arrived. To the supernatural senses of the Malkavian Roach the house itself was glowing a pale cold green and it felt uncomfortably like the house itself was watching them approach which was of course preposterous. As he attempted to tear his attention from it he felt the unmistakable throbbing behind the eye-balls that indicated a premonition of some kind was about to overwhelm him 

He could see three men climbing over the wall and approaching a house very much like this one, as the first man attempted to open the window he was suddenly and bloodily ripped apart by an explosion of glass shards. The remaining two attempted to run but moved as if running through treacle before some unseen force dragged them screaming backwards through the shattered window which reformed behind them without a trace cutting off their agonised screams as it did so. As the vision faded Roach could see Henry Waters dragging the torn apart body of the first would be burglar around the side of the house towards the cellar...Henry looked terrified...

Once adequately recovered Roach attempted to relay to Michael and Vin what he'd saw but without a suitable shared frame of reference the best he could manage was "The house is really weird and creepy...". Vin however wasn't really paying attention as he was more focused on the mansions security, or more correctly it's seeming complete lack of security.

Over the door is an old plaque obviously from a much older property with the date 1822 upon it in elaborate raised numbers though the middle '2' is loose. You are greeted at the door by Henry wearing a stylised outfit seemingly somewhere between butler and manservant. "May I take your coats or jackets? or would you like me to see you straight through to the Baron and Baroness?"

Michael handed him a carefully folded jacket, while Roach removed all his important belongings from his before handing it over, a process which actually took three times as long as simply keeping the jacket with him would have done. Vin kept his on though less because of the weapons within and more because it had been acquired for him by Michael and was about the nicest item of clothing he'd ever owned and he hadn't removed it since it had been given to him. Michael also left the accoutrements required for his artistic endeavours with him. 

The house while still possessing all the modern fixtures and fittings has definitely been constructed and furnished to suit some-one most comfortable in the Bostonian style of the 1800's. You are led into a comfortable, well ordered sitting room where a man and a woman are waiting for you. A tall, thin man with a mane of silver hair and glasses dressed in an expensive suit which like much else is in an Edwardian style who could only be Edward. 

Vera Vignes - Baroness
Sitting by his side is a slender, delicate looking woman in her sixties who though still attractive has made no attempt to hide her age who must be Vera. Henry introduces you as Mr's Tomassino, West and Ghast before moving to stand by the door. Edward dismisses him with a wave of the hand without even looking in his direction. "So you're the acquaintances of the Gangrel who cleans up the messes of those without the breeding to manage their own affairs?"

Michael picked up instantly that the Baron was definitely not a fan of Marius and that distancing themselves may do them some credit though he also knew enough about etiquette to reason that too much hostility to the Gangrel might make them seem uncouth. While briefly pondering his reply he also noted that the look Vera Vignes gave her husband Edward when he dismissed Henry was one of utter contempt, swiftly hidden from which he concluded that Vera is in love (or whatever passes for that in elder kindred) with Henry.

The Toreador explained their association with the Gangrel as purely one of convenience and that they had simply performed a task in exchange for his assistance, now that arrangement was completed he foresaw any further contact as being along the same lines if at all. This explanation seemed to satisfy their host and he turned the conversation to the portrait that was the apparent reason for the visit.

Roach had also observed the brief interaction between Vera and Henry and concluded that there was definitely some subtle flirting going on between the pair and if they're not already lovers it was definitely on the cards however his observation of the auras of the three had led him to another conclusion. It was unsurprising to him that Henry was very obviously blood-bound to Edward but the fact that Vera was blood-bound to Henry was more of a revelation. It seemed unlikely based on the circumstances that Edward knew what was going on between them and would certainly react poorly should he find out.

A vision of the Gangrel Marius at some gathering of kindred flirting rather obviously with Vera flashed through his mind as did the negative reactions of both Edward and Henry to the attention he was lavishing upon her. Though he was unsure whether this look into the past was an accurate representation of a real event it would explain a lot though in his opinion the real issue that Edward had with their patron was that he didn't like the idea of a Gangrel with money, power and influence something no doubt unheard of when the Ventrue was himself embraced. This was also almost certainly compounded by the fact that the Autarkis Gangrel seemed to take a perverse pleasure out of being considered a necessary evil and went out of his way to annoy people he found pompous.

Vin's own observations were more on the practical rather than the social. He'd spotted a handful of servants not one of which looks like they were security or even combat trained, a basic alarm system a child could bypass and not one door lock that could stop even an indifferent burglar. If there was any physical security in the mansion it was very well hidden indeed.

"So are you going to make a start on this portrait tonight or will we be arranging another visit?" "Your fellow kindred can wait in the library if they wish or I can arrange for Henry to take them wherever they require?" "I myself have some correspondence to complete, without my strong guidance the mortal politics of Pasadena wouldn't move in the right directions at all..."

Michael confirmed that he'd bought all the necessary items he required to make a start with some preliminary sketches and would be happy to begin immediately. Henry appeared at the door as if summoned though no signal that the coterie had observed had been made. Edward bade Henry to guide the artist to somewhere suitable to begin and Vera followed along dutifully behind. As the baron himself began to rise to leave Roach asked politely if he could have a word with him about a business venture he had in mind. Intrigued the Ventrue remained seated and indicated that he should continue.

Roach laid out his plan to bring some new culture to Pasadena by expanding from the gallery outwards into the surrounding block and further to make several of these places 'kindred friendly' with Edward as of course an honoured guest should he ever wish to grace any of these establishments with his presence. Observing the barons aura he could see that flattery and the thought of bringing more culture to the area were working to bring Edward around to the idea though when Roach mentioned using thin-bloods as labour the response became distinctly frosty. Roach swiftly recovered by describing any thin-bloods as 'menial labour' which seemed to satisfy the arrogant Ventrue.

Baron Vignes told Roach that he was pleased that proper etiquette had been shown by asking his permission before expanding outside of their agreed upon territory and agreed to give the matter some serious thought...once he'd dealt with the issue of the expensive painting his wife desired. Having a very clear idea of where this was going the Malkavian assured Edward that the portrait was to be a gift from Michael and the coterie and would cost him nothing except perhaps some goodwill. With his own business concluded he left Michael to continue with his work on the painting with Vin watching over him and left the mansion to return to the haven. Unsurprisingly a cab was waiting for him outside and took him exactly where he wished to go..

Though a willing subject Michael was more than empathetic enough to notice that she didn't seem particularly interested in having the portrait done and as in the gallery it was very obvious that Henry wished to ask something but this time seemed actually afraid to broach the subject. Wishing to move the conversation on but conscious that a delicate touch was needed the Toreador used every trick he knew to relax the pair and ingratiate himself with them and gradually built up their trust. Once he had done as much as he could he switched to a more direct approach and simply asked what he could do to help.

Reluctantly at first and then after checking the door to ensure they weren't overheard Henry finally revealed what Michael and Roach had already deduced that he and Vera wished to free themselves from Edwards influence but knew that he would kill them both before allowing it to occur. Henry had apparently deduced that the coterie were ambitious and pointed out that without the baron reigning in Pasadena and with him and the baroness absent it would be ripe for them to take over. Knowing that they had access to the resources they needed to simply leave Michael pointed out that he didn't see why they would need any help. It was then that they revealed the fundamental problem with their plan.

The love-struck pair were fearful of any attempt to elope as Edward had under his control a mysterious force that acted violently against his enemies. It had to their knowledge destroyed one attempt burglary upon the mansion itself and utterly destroyed a significant group of kindred who had tried to end Edwards unlife without any seeming effort on his part. It was this force that they wished assistance with as without it escape from him would though not easy be much less likely to be doomed to failure.

They themselves had no knowledge of the occult and hoped that the newcomers might and this information made Roach's ominous statement about the mansion make more sense. Pledging to help where he could the Toreador and his Brujah protector made their farewells and left to consider what they were going to do next...

To Be Continued in 'The Pasadena Problem' Part Two

In Conclusion
I like to do a round-up of how the session went in these features but if you couldn't give a shit what I think then feel free to skip this bit...
A mainly social session which may have been a disappointment for those of you who are fans of Vin and his inventive ways of killing people.

This was another session that amazingly went broadly as I was expecting mainly due to the fact that the coterie currently has fairly clear goals and have been making a concerted effort to move their plans forward. Of course being vampires there's a certain amount of furthering their own specific agendas but without those kinds of things vampire the masquerade would be no fun at all I suppose.

As I have no plans to cross-over into any of the other various supernatural systems I'll only be paying attention in the broadest possible sense to the canon for mages and wraiths and if I need something to work a specific way then it will regardless of if a supplement 17 years ago contradicts me, lol.

Spoiler Alert - There's some brutal murders next session to keep the Vin fans happy...

I've used pictures of real people to represent some of the characters and art for others so in no particular order, Michael Tomassio is represented by the actor Matt Bomer, Johnny 'Roach' West is quite obviously a drawing of Kurt Cobain, 'Vin' is the actor Scott Adkins, Dr Matthews is Mads Mikkelsen, Henry Waters is a very young Henry Cavill, Jenna Cross is Rhona Mitra and Vera Vignes is Helen Mirren. Everything else is from vampire related folders and searches and is as far as I know is all of the 'fair use' variety. If there's something that you feel should be attributed to some-one then feel free to let me know and I'll happily add an acknowledgement...

Thoughts and comments are (as usual) most welcome.
