Ooc- Iggy, make a diplomacy roll and you both can make sense motive rolls.

Iggy's time in the Air Brigade and his science-enhanced faculties did not equate to any ability to actually talk to people or really be able to judge (or care about) their responses.

Diplomacy: 1d20-1 8 if Aid Other (it adds +0)
Sense Motive: 1d20+1 5

The receptionist frowns a little "do feel free to make an appountment and we can organise a tour for you. Please do understand that we are working on new designs and patents all the time that some of our competitors would love to get hold of. If I could take your names and some contact details we could book you in for a tour. "

Iggy shrugs. "Maybe we'll just wait for the dendroglyphic matrix to see if Dr. Haber is in, right now."

"Of course, who may I say is inquiring after him if we do have a doctor Haber currently in our employ?"

"My name is Elizabeth Carolynn Erin Renwald, lecturer at the University of London, and associate of the London Mathematical Society." Elizabeth gave a slight curtsy.

"Iggdraxikkerlitsyn." He says. Deadpan. No elaboration.

"Mr Iggdraxikkerlitsyn, and lady Elizabeth. Well, we'll see if we can find Mr Haber for you."
She dings a bell and a small cherub appears. Sve hands it a piece of paper and it zips off, it's little wings flapping.

Hours pass. Several cups of tea a d delightful biscuits later there is a buzz of wings and another cherub appears with a scroll. The receptionist looks at it.
"Mr Iggdraxikkerlitsyn, lady Elizabeth we have the results of the personnel search." She hands you the scroll.
There are five Habers on it.
1 is a cook aged 55, living in Brussels. 1 is a lorry driver in Manchester, 1 is a machine maintenance worker in Berlin, 1 is a storeman in Rhiem.

Iggy is impressed she got his name right. The goblin is out of his mind waiting for hours though. After solving every crossword puzzle and word search in every periodical they have in the waiting area he begins opening his mechanical arm to clean muck out of it with a rag.

When the lady came back with dubious results he scowls at her but wait for the final result.

Iggy wanted to say it was 'Alchemy' he knew which.... shared the field with chemistry. But it wasn't worth mentioning. Many people used them as synonyms these days any way.

To synthesize that pheromone...

Alchemical: 1d20+15 35
Oh, wow.

Fritz Haber is the only scientist you think capable of this at the moment. The man is your hero. His ground breaking work on piperonal derivatives, his enlightened work in electrochemistry...You should have recognised his work in the polymer chains. You have followed his work closely. He is currently working for the Royal Dutch Petroleum Company in an unspecified role although his rate of publication has dropped off a lot recently.

Iggy knew he was not mistaken. If the official word was that Haber was not here then they should just leave without fuss. Obviously more was going on here than they knew. Maybe Sir Reginald has word of the RDPC ships going and coming from Africa even if these people didn't.

"oh sorry, I assumed you wanted living emlpoyees. Emil Haber, Belgian Congo, Deceased. So sorry we couldn't be more help. It is getting on but do feel free to drop in and see us again though if you have more inquiries to make."

Iggy whispers 'Is she sincere about the Habers?"
