Across town at the docks the Northern ruffians had already taken possession of the strange crate and took up defensive positions as it was loaded upon a wagon ready for transportation to destination unknown..
Two of the ruffians move forward anticipating the arrival of the Professors men and begin firing. Panic ensues as gunfire is heard on the streets of the Capital. One of the Professors men goes down straight away, luckily there was a Dr in the group who immediately went to his aid.
The fight goes well for the Professor and Captain Fellows and they manage to force their way through the melee into the dock square
Only to be confronted by the sudden appearance of a huge swarm of rats which appear to be protecting the crate.
The rats immediately swarm towards them.
"Hurry Captain Fellows, we must hurry, the light is almost gone!"
To be continued..... ;)
