SCENE EIGHT: THE CONCLUSION
If Rasputin has been killed and the Tsar saved, then he will quickly recover from the Disruptor influence. The Tsar's mind will clear and he will begin to realise what a fool he has been.
The train will be stopped shortly after the final fight. The communists, after hearing of the failing of the rising in Petrograd, have fled. The civil servants, however, have gathered in a near by building, fully equipped with a working telegraph and extensive legal documents for the promised 'great announcement'. Instead of abdicating, Tsar Nicholas will make a great speech, which is broadcast by telegraph and recorded on paper. This is his first step toward uniting his country and goes a long way to quelling the brewing rebellions. For the moment disaster is averted.
The players return to Petrograd as heroes, and are the honoured guests of the Royal family. They should then return to London to pick up their medals and recieve their accolade before returning to Zero-Zero to boring ald life as usual.......
AN HISTORICAL NOTE
Obviously a great deal of artistic license has gone into the events of this adventure. However, in an infinite number of parallels, anything can happen so indulge me and enjoy this scenario. Special thanks to Micheal Cassells for helping me design the Rasputin character and for turning him into such a lovely villian.
A FINAL NOTE ON RASPUTIN
Historically, as every schoolboy knows, Rasputin did not die so easily. If he fell from the speeding train, their is no reason why he can't disrupt the Tsar's speech. returning bloodied and furious in true horror story style; or return to wreak his revenge in a future scenario.
