Mysteries of the Big Easy (Deadlands: Noir)

Tune 5: All Buttoned Up

Simon Beauregard was pretty friendly and talkative with a gun in his face and the dead people not moving on the ground around him after we took them out. Turns out he spilled all the beans he was worth and to our surprise to the coppers as well since we were surrounded on the second floor of the Blue Iris.

Seems the Mafia caught wind of a specific ecentric product some of the local fat cats were craving, human flesh. With a service provided by the Mafia or just a nice way to make a double profit of bumping off people in their way this Cult of the Flesh paid through the nose for a delivered butcher service like from the shirmp plant the party stumbled on. With their main operation up the Mafia was getting a little antsy, no one likes thinking a group of financial secure well connected cannibals are gunning for you wanting to take a ‘piece out of your hide’ literally so they drummed up the charges on Bernard and put a patsy back in charge of the teamsters, when the cannibals caught wind of the new patsy trying to blackmail them they didn’t take kindly to it. Mafia sent out some undead goons to clean up shop for the would be black mailers. Until the party showed up.

We were arrested the lot of us until the cops sorted things out, took em long enough though. Turns out the cars were stolen to Angelo’s disappointment so he found the address out and mailed the keys to them.

Bernard was cleared of charges of killing Travis Evans, Lt Combs seemed to have enough time to pack up and beat feet out of town by the time the fellas were out. Angelo chalked it up to ‘fine police work to let the rat get away’. Simon lawyered up and made a berak for a healthy climate, at least healthier for him.

Faced with the thoughts of going after the cult members before they came looking for the group seemed a little more then they wanted to deal with, who wants to fight a cannibal? With the police getting the information on the group a lot of influential people in New Orleans the party suggest they take it to the Texas Rangers since from how Angelo put it, ’They’ll put a few holes in anything’. Escorting the Sergeant there did seem silly to her but as Angelo put it, if someone pulled up and nabbed her she’d feel better knowing she got dumped into the Biyou with some class act guys. The ranger thanked the group for their trouble and dismissed them. Angelo wanted to tell the guy he was a bit of a sourpuss but he did say they’d put a hole in anything so he thought twice about it.
