Brother Casimir and the Illinois Railway Museum: a diplomatic problem
Brother Casimir is a young and enthusiastic Inquisitor (perhaps over-enthusiastic). He’s not a particularly cruel man and takes no real pleasure in torture – but he is proud of his ability to “break and remake” sinners. He is ambitious and ruthless.
Casimir’s enthusiasm has been rewarded by his superiors. He has been placed in charge of an Inquisitor project to salvage a pre-collapse rail museum: the Illinois railway Museum (IRM). This is something of a mixed blessing. Casimir has a great opportunity but he has some major problems.
The various exhibits of the IRM are in poor condition, but enough remains to provide an immensely useful resource for (re)building a rail network. Therefore, several groups have an interest in the site; Twin Port University, Maxwell’s Militia,the NAU, and the Frozen Chosen would all like to own it – but don’t want to fight each other. Fortunately, a diplomatic solution has been found: the Inquisitors are clearing the site and (for a reasonable fee) allow “scholars” to study the technology and sometimes buy examples of specific machines.
Obviously, the IRM is a major asset for the Inquisitors and they take great care to keep it safe. They have become quite skilled at dealing with Razers and in “converting” them to their faith.
The Museum is now a church of the Inquisitors and home to a group of 40 fanatical worshippers. They are equipped with the best weaponry that the Church can provide (shotguns, bolt-action rifles, and a small supply of antique Thompson Machine Guns).
