A Cautionary Tale of Two Cities

Consequences: Day 2

After getting Enrique some needed medical attention, the group called in Stinky Joe to assist with covering their tracks. Joe used shapeshifting and glamours to make it appear that the group died in a car accident. On his way back to the group, Joe was pressed into carrying a message to Enrique, informing him that his help was needed by his fellow Knight of the Cross, Sanya. He set the remainder of the group up with a contact in Baltimore.

Consequences: Day 1

The next morning, following the Red Court annihilation, Nicholas got a call from Officer Fintan. Officer Fintan told Nicholas that there was a federal task force gearing up to arrest him and his friends. While on the phone he asked Nicholas if he knew anything about multiple grave sites being disturbed around the area.

The group immediately mobilized and fled to the Never Never. They promptly discovered the cause of the grave disturbances. Dabumun was waiting for them with hundreds of zombies. They retreated back to the normal world and took off to find another spot to enter the Never Never. They slipped back through a portal, and, under cloak, proceeded on their journey. After a short tussle with a few zombies, they eventually came out in the Outback. A few more hops and they found themselves traveling through Winter Court territory. They ended up having to fight their way out, slaying two trolls and several hobs in the process. Eventually they came through at Klaus’s house in Belgium.

After a short rest and bringing Klaus up to speed they left for Benny’s hideout in the Agean, leaving Zeke behind to recuperate.

Something Wicked: Day 3

After spending the night in rest and recuperation, Nicholas and Enrique left to seek assistance. As they were driving they were accosted by a group of the Jaguar Knights. Thinking quickly, Enrique called The Hammer asking for assistance. After a tense standoff, the Hammer rode up on his bike, dismounted and told the Knights that they had best see to their own as the barrio was now on fire. The Knights quickly left to see to their loved ones and the Hammer told Nick and Enrique that they owed him even more now, but he’d collect much later, assuming they lived, as he was leaving town shortly.

The entire team got together to discuss their plan. After a short while they came up with an inspired plan of mayhem. They stole a fire engine from the barrio fire, ensured the tank was filled and then blessed. They caught up with the Hammer before he left, where they managed to get a some heavier firepower and Nick picked up Nannupuq to assist with the battle.

For the assault on Duke Gaspar’s compound, Nick took up an overwatch position, Benny prepared to augment the attack with magic, Trick was in the driver’s seat of the fire engine and Enrique prepared to blow the gate with an RPG.

The attack went off without a hitch. After exploding the fire engine inside Gaspar’s mansion and massively decimating his guard force the group retired to Benny’s.

While they were celebrating they heard the telltale sound of a beating heart, the signature of the Jaguar demon. In a final battle against the demon and the Eebs, Enrique lost his arm, but the Red Court forces were ultimately defeated.

Something Wicked: Day 2

While discussing the previous evening’s diplomatic apocalypse, the group was interrupted by the sound of rolling thunder. Nick stepped away to listen in to what was happening on his police scanner, where he heard of an explosion in St. Paul.

The group immediately headed out to investigate. Upon arrival, they found that Olav‘s house and the surrounding five houses had been destroyed in a massive explosion. Benny presented himself to the police as Olav’s next of kin. As Benny was talking to the police, Olav was pulled from the wreckage, grievously injured.

The quickly followed Olav’s ambulance, arriving just as they were pulling up to the hospital. Benny was able to convince the administration to put Olav in an isolated area through the application of large amounts of money.

As Benny was making arrangements, Nick received an panicked phone call from Zeke indicating that the mansion was under attack.

The group tore off towards the mansion, only to have the car fail en route. Thinking quickly, Benny opened a portal to the Nevernever. After a jaunt through floating rocks, the Arctic and a dank cave, they came out a half mile from the mansion.

As they came up to the mansion, they saw Eva Fediraya engaged in fighting a massive jaguar demon, while Red Court vampires were taking shots at the mansion itself. After a short battle they managed to run the vampires off.

Something Wicked: Day 1

The day began with Benny reading in the paper that the American Swedish Institute had burned the previous evening. While he was getting ready to go investigate, Eva received a call from Hernando letting her know that the entire St. Giles cell had been wiped out that night.

Benny and Nick investigated the attack on the ASI and found the place gutted. They went to Professor Tomasson‘s house and found him there, gravely wounded. A quick conversation with his wife led them to calling Dr. Alhazred to stabilize the professor. After the doctor’s tender ministrations, the professor was evacuated by a team from the Venatorum Umbrorum.

Benny reached out to his contacts and found out that the Red Court was preparing the way for a major ritual. Apparently, one of the Lords of Outer Night, Tezcatlipoca was coming to town.

The group arranged a meeting with Duke Gaspar at the Pig’s Eye. To describe the meeting as disastrous would be putting it mildly. Benny insulted the Duke and it fell to Enrique to act as peacemaker. Enrique’s efforts were unsuccessful.

Hounded: Day 14

The group, after considering Connall’s demands, agreed to return the Gae Bolg to him in exchange for certain concessions. Nicholas drew up the following document:

In exchange for safely returning the Gae Bolg:
1. Bill will be returned alive and unharmed.
2. Connall, his friends, allies and any potential contracting intermediaries cannot harass, kidnap, harm, torture or kill the undersigned, their families, hangers on and non-supernatural business associates now and in perpetuity. This agreement is voided in regards to those previously mentions as protected if they attack Connall.

This was signed by Nicholas, Benny, Enrique, Trick and Connall.

Connall accepted the agreement and the exchange was made.
