Hunger Pangs

Season 2 Episode 6
It's a trap!

The scene opens with In the hope on hastings mission. Father Olafsen is convinced that trying to rescue Van Villet is worthwhile. When Liz awoke she broke down saying that “whatever happens we’re dead anyway.” She expressed little faith in the pack’s ability to protect her or her son but was persuaded to assist them anyway. The pack continued to use her son as a bargaining tool and convinced her to dress for the meeting with Zietterberg’s associates. Uratha assisted, showing her more girly side, and Ted dressed himself as a Bodyguard. The pack readied themselves and took Elizabeth to her Tree milling plant in North Vancouver.

At the plant some argument broke out about strategy, whether to prepare an ambush or try to play along and get more information about the deal. VanVillet again warned the characters about going into an open fight and convinced the pack once more to let her make the meeting and assist the players. The argument about strategy led to Jason putting his foot down as leader and telling Ted to follow the plan. The fetish around Ted’s neck prevented him from arguing the point further. Ted dressed as Liz’s body guard stood with her at the meeting, Uratha stepped sideways to the spirit world and the rest of the pack remained hidden around the milling plant’s grounds. Things became tense when security forces arrived to set up a perimeter before the main party arrived with two strange humanoids, a young businessman and a pack of five Black Spiral Dancers. Ted quickly spotted the Dancer’s and, when they began to snoop around, Jason had to make a quick sidestep to the Umbra to avoid being detected.

The Black Spirals were wary, eyeing off Ted and Liz. They began talking in Garou and sent one of their pack (presumably a Theurge) to go to scope out the Penumbra. In the spirit realm the Black spiral materialized several meters away from Uratha. Luckily the Spiral was distracted and attacked a pattern spider, taking sick delight in slowly pulling it apart once deposed. Uratha managed to stealthily move away from the Dancer but was suddenly joined by Jason in the spirit world. The two got the jump on the spiral Dancer managing to kill the corrupted Garou as it attempted to step back across the gauntlet.

On the other side the talk between VanVillet and the young businessman revealed Zietterberg was purchasing the Mt. Polley mine. The talks began wrapping up but but the Spirals became tense when their packmate still had not returned from the Umbra. As tensions began to mount, Halley snuck into one of the boats that had brought Zietterberg’s attache. Ted moved around the milling shed and detonated a smoke bomb and explosive grenade before shouting “the perimeter has been compromised!”

The security forces grouped with the businessman, and two humanoids and ran back to the boat. The Spiral Dancers, still missing their packmate, refused to leave. Halley tried to attack the group on the boat but a poorly aimed molotov cocktail was dropped of the side of the boat by accident. Leaping off the boat and onto the pier, she moved to attack the security forces but they opened fire with assault rifles, spraying her with bullets. Channeling her rage to stay alive, Halley fled the scene in a fox frenzy (and has a permanently collapsed lung as a result).

In the confusion one of the Black Spirals punched Ted out as he was running towards Liz. Deciding they were under attack and their packmate was probably dead the Spiral pack fled the scene with an unconscious Ted and VanVillet in the grips of the Delirium. The episode closed with Uratha and a battered Jason peeking at the scene through the Umbra, watching four remaining Black Spiral Dancers take Liz and Ted captive and leaving the milling shed empty.

Season 2 Episode 5
Heart-strings attached

After visiting father Olafsen to enquire about the spirit that attacked them, the pack decided to go through with entering VanVillet’s house. Upon entering the house the group found the bedroom of a young boy. In the spirit world the bane that had attacked them earlier appeared to be whispering something to the sleeping boy. The group attacked and the spirit managed to open some kind of portal before being vanquished. While the pack managed to keep scrags from exiting the portal, Jason suffered some serious wounds needing to channel his rage to keep from being incapacitated. He now has a permanent scar as a result.

Once the spirit was disposed of the group were able to exit from the Umbra on top of the sleeping VanVillet, taking her and her son hostage. As well as recovering several articles from the house to try and dig up leads. Ted tried to keep the boy calm while the group made an escape in Van Villet’s 4WD.

The character’s drove VanVillet to the woods and began interrogating her but she was soon possesed by a bane, vomiting and issuing threats at Ted. Jason lost his patience but when he went to break Liz’s neck, Uratha intervened biting his hand. Liz VanVillet made a run for it but (being restrained and running through snow) was easily run down and mercilessly beaten by Halley.

The group took VanVillet to the Hope on Hastings mission and have asked father Olafsen if it’s worth trying to save her from the Wyrm. In the meantime they must also decide what to do with her son, who appears free of Wyrm taint.

Season 2 Episode 4
Unexpected visitors

The pack decided to head north from Whistler. Encountering a snow storm, they came to a stop after hitting a deer. As Jason, Uratha and Ted changed the tire, a whiteout set in. Left alone in rear-most car, Halley was approached by three men. Agreeing to go peacefully with the men, the rest of the group was approached Halley (actually another Garou disguised as Halley) and asked to submit peacefully. The group was led onto a mountain by Garou from the Sept of cold tears. They were interrogated by a Garou known as Crying Ice and Howling wind briefly before Leon Bisclaret (brother to Yves Bisclaret) showed up and explained that the pack had broken the litany and would need to see some form of punishment.

Dimitri soon arrived and was able to intervene stating he was an emissary from Yves. Leon reluctantly agreed to release the pack but wanted assurance they would be punished for breaking two tenets of the litany stating “My own people would suffer punishment for their transgressions”. From here the pack made their way back to the Sept of Sky Lake. Dimitri told the pack that he was aware that VanVillet was meeting some of Zietterberg’s representatives. Upon arrival at sky lake Halley received a rite to prevent her from turning into Crinos and Ted was forced to wear a fetish necklace of some kind. Uratha was able to determine that the necklace made him more obeisant and increased the difficulty to act against orders.

Veronica and father Olafsen suddenly arrived with Olafsen warning that a member of the society of Leopold had arrived in Vancouver. The pack was able to chat with several of the elders, mostly trying to get information about Zietterberg and Elizabeth VanVillet. Jason was also able to learn a little bit about the Corax, in particular their weakness to gold and affinity for shiny objects.

Returning to Vancouver the pack broke into Sean’s aparment to get some rest and take care of the basics. Once rested they decided to visit Elizabeth’s house in Kitsilano but somewhat deterred by the number of security cameras they decided to enter the house via the Umbra. In the penumbra they fought several Scrag banes before making their way into the garage. They slowly made their way through the house with Uratha peeking through to the real world. The group realized that VanVillet has a son who was present at the house. As they began discussing plans the pack was taken by surprise by an unknown spirit that possessed Jason and began blasting the group with bolts of green energy. The group made a hasty retreat and decided to cross back to the real world and check out the main trade docks of Vancouver.

Ted managed to gain access to the docs and take a look around but without any specific thing to look for was unable to generate much useful information. The group was met by Dimitri who explained that Elizabeth would be meeting associates of Zietterberg at the public Marina tomorrow night and that they were looking in the wrong place. From here to group returned home, planning to investigate VanVillet further and possibly join with Dimitri to investigate the public Marina.

Season 2 Episode 3
Blood Brothers

The character’s left Joseph’s farm and as they were driving through the city were attacked by a group of unknown vampires. Joseph’s younger brother, Andy, was snatched from the car with the leeches making a quick escape. A distraught Joseph held back a frenzy while the group consulted what to do.

The group decided to consult with Dante but before doing this Jason convinced Uratha to smoke a strange substance giving her prophetic visions. As the visions hit, Uratha saw the vampire group driving past a sign to Whistler and talking about meeting up with “Sabine”.

Upon meeting up with Dante, he seemed to know Sahara stating that she was an old vampire and an enemy of his. He offered aid to the group giving them access to his personal weapon cache. Stating that sometime the pack could “return the favour”.

The group made their way to Whistler and began scouting around for clues. Rattlehead and Uratha had limited success scouting the parks and umbra. Halley and Jason also had limited success trying to find down and outers in up-market Whistler. Sean and Ted settled in to a local bar where Sean discovered there had been a particularly violent robbery the previous night across the road. Sean managed to find out the name of a clerk who was attacked and the hospital where he was staying.

In this time, Ted disappeared without Sean’s notice returning with another car. At this point pack tensions flared and the group accused Ted of strange behaviour. Halley demanded to see his phone and when he refused a struggle broke out. Halley made the full change to Crinos, Ted responded and the two went a few rounds in the street with several pedestrians screaming and running away.

The group decided to make a quick escape after the outburst and made their way to the hospital. Here they managed to talk to the clerk who was attacked and get information about the attackers. The clerk spoke of the robbers wanting to “juice up” before leaving town. While the clerk took this to mean drugs, the pack assumed this meant feeding and hit the bars.

The pack made their way to the main bar strip and after checking several bars found two vampires who had made a meal of an unwary patron. The vampires sensed something was up and made a quick escape with the 1/2 the pack following in pursuit. Joseph, Sean and Ted made their way North to try block the exit out of town.

The leeches fled to their hide-out grabbing Andy and three other vamps while taking shots at the pack. Under fire and driving into oncoming traffic, the car with Halley, Jason and Rattlehead stalled and the vampires fled North. “Sequestering” the vehicle from the friver who caused the accident the pack made their way to the Northern roadblock.

It was here that the vamps were forced into a showdown with the pack. Ted’s sharp shooting taking out one while Halley and Rattlehead took out two others. The tall blonde male leech and the goth looking female made an escape into the snow leaving Andy part way in the woods. The pack were able to locate Andy but the two vamps had disappeared.

At this point Joseph departed with Sean as Rattlehead made his way south to meet up with his mentor The Maw. Halley, Jason, Ted and Uratha drove south in the stolen car and were able to retrieve their impounded car by knocking out the tow-truck driver that had impounded it. The pack now find themselves in the early morning in Whistler with a stolen car and an impounded vehicle.

Season 2 - Chapter 2
Maggots in the meat

At the opening of the story the pack was driving towards the Packhenham abattoir and meat processing plant. Halley wanted to pull up and discuss strategy before entering the plant.
It was here Sean contacted his brother in response to a text from Joseph. He learned that his mother had passed away and his brother wanted him to return to Boston for the funeral.
Halley wanted to have a spar with Ted to test out his combat abilities. After exchanging a few blows they called it quits and decided to move on to the plant.

At the abattoir the group discovered that there was a single security guard who was absorbed in a television show. Jason and Ted snuck around the back of the complex while Sean kept an eye on the guard from the shadows.

Upon entering the complex Jason and Ted discovered that it had been closed for some time and that it appeared deserted. As they made their way through the complex they discovered three formor on the fourth floor. While they were able to silently approach the room, continual discussion about what to do roused the formor.

After exchanging several blows, Ted was struggling to take down the formor. Jason killed one and told Ted to make a run for the elevator. Ted escaped to the fifth floor while Jason continued fighting. Ted found an office and as he entered the room lit up and a phone began ringing.

Hearing the commotion in the building Sean changed to Crinos and tried to scale the building. After falling once he alerted the security guard who was overcome by the delirium. Sean persisted and was finally able to scale the building. He entered via the roof and found Ted scrambling through the office.

While Ted found a gun and some US dollars, Sean answered the phone. Sean realized he was talking on the phone with Zietterburg. In the conversation Zietterberg seemed to know the group were fairly young Garou and wanted Sean to join him serving the Wyrm adding that Sean should come find him in Arizona.
Sean told Zietterburg to “go fuck himself” and Zietterburg asked about Sean’s family.
Finally Zietterberg told Sean he left a surprise in the basement for them.

Downstairs Jason had disposed of one more formor before the other suddenly stopped fighting. The ground begun to rumble as a large Thunderwyrm erupted from beneath the carpark. The formor turned and ran. Sean and Ted ran to the top of the building while Jason rabbed the body of the dead formor and ran at the barred window. Jason successfully busted through the window but took enough damage from the fall that he was knocked unconscious.

Feeling the rumbling from the emerging Thunderwyrm, Halley ran into the car park. As the Thunderwyrm grabbed onto the side of the building, Sean tried to leap off the roof and onto the beast. Unfortunately he missed and was also knocked knocked unconscious by the fall. Halley ran at the wyrm, clawing up one side of the beast while Ted shot at it from the roof. The wyrm ripped one side of the building off before turning to grab at Halley. It managed to pierce Halley in the shoulder with one of it’s mandibles while Ted shot it in the side. Finally Halley clambered up to the head, ripping it free from the creature’s body.

Once the creature was disposed off, Sean and Jason were able to recover themselves. The pack grabbed a hard drive from the office, dragged the security guard free from the building before setting the building alight.

The pack are now on route to Joseph’s farm. Sean has announced he will leave to go to Boston and that the pack should head to Arizona. Halley and Jason expressed interest in talking to Veronika.

Season 2 - Chapter 1
Picking up the pieces

The story opened with the characters standing at the body of a lifeless man just after the moot. A howl summoned the players back to the heart of the Caern where they were directed to return to the lodge in the valley. The next morning The Maw left with Rattlehead to return to the Sept of Winter’s teeth.

The characters spent three weeks stuck at the caern performing basic duties and patrolling the bawn. During this time they had a few opportunities to speak with Jawn and Yves. At the end of the third week The Maw returned with Ted Cane (as a replacement for Rattlehead). Later that same day Joseph arrived to pick up the characters and return them to the city.

Upon arriving at the city the Jason and Ted decided to stake out Jason’s old apartment. They didn’t find much inside but Ted was able to discern that someone was watching the apartment from across the road. The rest of the pack decided to find a hotel downtown while Jason wanted to stick around and investigate who was watching over the apartment. Unfortunately a a botched attempt at unlocking the lobby door caused the glass to break and Jason decided to take the pack’s car (given to them by Veronika) and leave.

The pack found a hotel in Yaletown and while outside the hotel Uratha slipped sideways into the Umbra. Here she met with Skree, who stated he would come and find the pack. Upon returing to the material world Uratha met up with Sean, Halley and Ted. They headed off to a restaurant where they were soon joined by Jason.

At the restaurant Sean made eyes with a girl at the bar, Lakshmi, and agreed to meet her out later. Jason and Halley exited the restaurant early and while Halley was buying some first aid supplies, Jason was approached by Skree. Skree asked Jason to dispose of a vampire in the abandoned train tunnel, stating he would leave a urine trail to follow.

After some disagreement over who should pay the bill, the pack decided to go after the vampire with the exception of Halley. Halley organized a meeting with Veronika downtown. The rest of the pack entered the abandoned train tunnel and Sean used his fae light to light the way. Some way along the path, the pack discovered a backpack with a box inside and a note to bring it along. Jason took the box and continued following the trail.

After some trepidation from the rest of the pack about the identity of the box, Jason tried to open it. After another botched attempt he ended up arming the bomb inside. Jason threw the box and he, Ted, Uratha and Sean all jumped into a sewer pipe. The resulting explosion collapsed the tunnel trapping them in the sewers. The group eventually managed to catch up with Skree in the sewers and appearing annoyed, Skree bailed on the group.

Meanwhile Halley was discussing the possibility of getting another car with Veronika. Halley also discovered that there were two groups of vampires fighting each other in the city. The group Dante was involved with had made peace with the Garou but another group known as the Red scorpions were trying to take over the city. She also warned Halley that she should be very careful in having dealing with Ratkin, that these deals usually worked out for the worst.

Veronika also looked over the documents the pack recovered from Victor’s and was able to discern the address of the abatoir the meat had come from. She also said that a M Zietterberg had signed off on many of the documents. Veronika said she would dig up some dirt on Zietterberg and get back to Halley. Halley walked outside the restaurant to find smoke rising up form a nearby street. Dropping through a nearby sewer vent she was able to meet up with the pack.

Uratha followed the faint smell of blood in the sewers and eventually reach the point where Halley was. While everyone met in this room they were attacked by a group of Cannibal formor. Jason decapitated one and while Halley, Ted and Sean took on three others. While Ted was able to shoot the formor down and Halley finish them off in Crinos, Sean’s gun jammed and he was badly mauled by one of the formor. Jason used the body of one formor to subdue the last one.

While tending to Sean’s wounds the group was approached by Brian (who they later found out to be the vampire Skree was trying to kill). He offered to guide them out of the sewers and somewhere they could get help. Using a strange song he was able to enchant Sean and the group were led to the Bourbon, owned by Dante Marconio.

The old vampire tried to glean information from the player’s and when unsuccessful with Jason was able to read Sean’s addled mind. He warned the players to leave Brian alone and allowed them to leave after they refused his invitation to heal Sean.

From here the pack headed to Father Olafsen’s to rest for the evening and the next morning went into Stanley park to find Jaimie Ishihara. Jaimie seemed to view Skree in a more positive light than Veronika and reiterated that he thought they might know something about a powerful fetish.

Finally the characters left their bulky equipment with Jaimie before setting out to investigate the abatoir.

Chapter 10
Something wicked this way comes

The pack was driven to the Sky Lake Caern by Joseph and asked to leave their Weaverish belongings at the lodge. They were led through the forest by Jawn “The-Little-Crow”, an elderly Garou until they reached the central Caern. Here they found several other Garou including Joseph and his pack.

The silence was broken by the arrival of The-Maw-in-the-Mist, Rattleheads mentor. He entered directly into the clearing staring each of the pack down in a display of dominance. Halley was the only one to momentarily resist.

Shortly after this the arrival of Yves Bisclaret was announced when two men entered carrying his shrine. The shrine bore the symbol of house Gevaudin (a deer’s head in a silver wolfs mouth) and a large silver klaive. Joseph explained that the crest of house Gevaudin commemorates the defeat of the Fianna in Europe. Yves declared the moot had begun by raising his klaive; Sebraya Neshmir (The Silver Death). The weapon caused palpable fear in all pack members except Halley. Sean fell off his seat running a few meters. After the opening of the moot, one by one the players moved off to talk with various Garou.

Sean spoke with Joseph,
Jason spoke with Jaimie,
Rattlehead spoke with The Maw,
Halley spoke with Kathrynne Warrior-of-song
and Uratha tried to speak with Rhiyann before moving on to Little Crow.

After this The Telling began and each of the werewolves presented recounted their recent deeds. Each of the characters was questioned by the elders and judged according to their responses. The elder Garou (Yves, Jawn, Jaimie and Hunter) made it clear they believe the pack has made some rash and foolish decisions. They told the pack to go and discuss how they would remedy this.

The pack discussed the option of returning to the city to find the source of corruption causing the cannibal formor to appear. A this point Rattlehead announced his intention to leave the pack and return to his home Caern. The pack discussed who would lead in Rattlehead’s place and after some speculation decided that they would leave the decision to their elders.

Returning to the clearing the elders seemed pleased that the characters would return to rectify their mistakes but Yves was particularly upset at the announcement of Rattlehead’s departure. The Maw assured Yves that he would return with another great warrior but that a Red Talon’s place was truly in the forest.

Yves agreed to this but told the pack they should nominate their own leader, as they knew each other better than any Garou. Jason was finally chosen as pack leader.

Following the telling the Sept’s totem, Pek the mountain goat, was summoned and Halley and Rattlehead stepped forth to receive it’s blessing.

After this ceremony Yves announced that anyone may call challenges and fights. Halley was the first to respond and challenged Rattlehead to a battle in Glabro form. After a few back and forth exchange of blows Halley was able to upend Rattlehead face first in the dust and knock him unconscious.

Uratha challenged Rhiyann, with Rhiyann saying she wanted to use weapons. Uratha agreed only to realise she had left her axe at the lodge. Uratha was able to stave off Rhiyann’s attacks for a few rounds but eventually succumbed after a few dirge wounds and an almighty kick to her groin left her unconscious.

Sean decided to call a fight with the sept leader, Yves. The fight did not last long as Yves paralyzed Sean with a howl of fear and headbutted him to the edge of consciousness.

Joe Owens called a fight on Jason for his remark the Fianna can’t fight. Interupting this, the Maw said it was not honorable to call a fight with a younger Garou. The Maw fought in Jason’s place badly mauling Joe.

Finally the moot was concluded by the summoning of Engling spirits and the Great Hunt.
With the exception of Uratha, the rest of the pack shook off some damage and chased Engling spirits through the forest. Devouring them to gain gnosis. While in a forest clearing Jason noticed glowing red eyes and asked the pack to join him and investigate. The eyes disappeard but in their place he found a dead man on the ground with two puncture wounds on his neck. A warning howl to return to the Caern’s heart was sounded and the episode finished.

Chapter 9
New players to the stage

Part 1
The story opened with the players returning to Wizard’s peak to honour the pine spirits with numerous offerings including salmon, fruit and a grab bag of animals hunted by Rattlehead.
Upon returning home Sean reviewed the footage of the webcam he set up to monitor his apartment and found a shadowy figure entering his apartment. The creature seemed to enter under the door by transforming into mist. Freaked out by this revelation Sean met with the others in the pack at Jason’s apartment and the group were soon paid a visit by Joseph and Veronika. Apparently the pair had purchased an old Datsun for the pack to use. Joseph was particularly impressed by the La Cucaracha horn.

Joseph was convinced the figure in the webcam footage was a vampire and warned Sean to cease living in his apartment. Sean and Uratha decided to return to the apartment to recover the documents from Victor’s (which Sean had forgotten to bring). Meanwhile Jason decided to go with Joseph for a meeting with Dante and ask about the vampiric intruder.

Halley and Rattlehead decided to stay home and cook a casserole.

Sean and Uratha returned to Sean’s apartment and, after a quick sip of whiskey, recovered the documents. On the return journey to Jason’s place they split up to try and mislead any potential tails. Thus began a very convoluted trip home. During this time Sean was led via a Raccoon (the pack’s totem) to a vampire attack. Sean attacked the vampire but it escaped. The woman recovered and made a run from the scene (and the lupus Sean). Sean took the woman’s purse and made his way back to a rendezvous with Uratha.

Meanwhile Jason and Joseph entered the Bourbon after goading the Vampire bouncer. Meeting with Dante revealed the intruder to the apartment was part of a Vampiric clan known as the Gangrel. Dante seemed particularly pleased to meet Jason again but Jospheph was clearly on edge about the meeting. Despite this, he agreed to dispose of some of Dante’s enemies. Upon leaving Jason ran into a red-headed woman who was later revealed as Joseph’s sister. Jason decided not to press the issue.

Uratha returned to Jason’s apartmet and collected Halley before making their way back to the bar (and a tipsy Sean). They tried to return to the apartment via the Penumbra but Sean angered a large weaver spirit by playing with its webbing. Halley retrieved Sean and the group had to make a run for it back to the material world.

The group ran back to Jason’s but as Halley was still in homid, she was left behind by Sean and Uratha. She was approached and attacked by a guy on the street. Unfortunately for the assailant she ended up smashing his head into the pavement with a massive blow in typical Halley style.

The characters are now back in Jason’s apartment with the documents and have realized the location of the meat plant and noticed the appearance of a “Mr Z” on several documents. They are also aware of Joseph’s plans to take out a nest of leeches in the morning. The session was left with Sean successfully creating a little Rage amongst his packmates before discussing the possibilites of going with Joseph or checking out the meat plant. Decisions, decisions.

Part 2
The pack decided to join Joseph and attack a house believed to contain vampires. Inside the house a fight broke out and one person inside was killed. Another fled the house. Inside the house Joseph found a closed coffin dragging it into the morning sun. He threatened the vampire inside asking for the location of a person vampire called “K-dog”.
The vampire denied knowing him but warned all the Garou that “Vogrod is coming”.
Joseph opened the casket and let the vampire burn to death in the morning sunlight.

The pack returned to Jason’s apartment where Sean incited a frenzy in Jason. In an attempt to claw Sean’s throat Jason tore through a wall and hurled Sean’s motorcycle. One side of the building has been demolished and several people were sent running.

Once Jason calmed, the pack made their way back to Wizard’s peak. Here Rattlehead challenged Sean for leadership of the pack via a straight fight and won. The pack made their way to the peak and Rattlehead managed to engage in delightful conversation with a group of crows in the trees. After some confusion the pack convinced the crows to call up Dimitri.

Dimitri was able to shed some light on Vogrod, despite Uratha’s hostility towards him. He explained Vogrod as a vampiric ghost story, something the elders tell the younger vamps to spook them. In conversation Dimitri asked the pack for their assistance in killing Dante (the vampiric owner of the Bourbon nightclub) stating he was the real enemy to be wary of.

As the group crossed the umbra, Jason got briefly trapped trying to make the crossing to the umbra and was rescued by Halley. Finally the characters returned to the city, bought mobile phones and called Joseph. Joseph has just picked up the pack and informed them it was time to attend the moot.

Chapter 8

After their foray into the spirit world, four of the packmates retired to Sean’s apartment to sleep while Jason went to work. After napping, Rattlehead and Halley went on a foray to find food and ended up finding and killing a deer in a park. After seeing a suspicious figure in the rain Halley returned to the apartment while Rattlehead buried the deer’s corpse. Around this time Jason finished his shift and made his way to the apartment by taxi (it appears Sean’s bike wasn’t working).

Rattlehead struggled to re-enter the building and had a subsequent argument with Sean. This distraction was enough to allow Dimitri to fly through the open balcony door. Dimitri brought the ominous news that he believes someone else was watching the affairs on the night of the Animal recycling plant raid. He also informed the characters of Thomas Langtree’s suspicious death in hospital and his final words before he died; that the chemical agent that created the fomor was “in the meat”.

Feeling paranoid Jason set up Sean’s webcam to monitor the apartment before the characters made their way to Victor’s burger place to scout around. Sean and Halley managed to distract the guy at the counter long enough for Sean to get into the upstairs part of the building. Meanwhile Jason questioned a homeless woman at the back of the restaurant. Unfortunately due to Sean’s distraction the surly counter attendant began beating up the homeless woman in front of Jason. Sean found a large man sleeping in a chair upstairs and managed to knock the man unconscious.

Everything appeared to be going smoothly until a car screeched to a halt and three men in suits ambushed the group. The assailants seemed well prepared and almost managed to carry Jason off into the car. Changing into Crinos in the street led to mass panic however the pack fought back managing to kill two of the men while a third man barely escaped. Rattlehead performed a beautiful Hare’s leap onto the vehicle but was shaken off eventually.

In the mean time Sean searched the desk of the unconscious man, Victor perhaps, and tied him to his chair. He grabbed a sack of money and some suspicious looking documents. Worried about leaving evidence the pack set the building alight leaving the occupants that were still alive to die a horrible, horrible death. As they escaped Rattlehead thinks he spotted another pink fomor.

The characters have taken documents and cash from Victor’s as well as weapons from their assailants. The good fight was fought but not without many witnesses to the pack’s transformation. Soon the pack will need to face their elders and recount their deeds.

Chapter 7
All watched over by machines of loving grace.

In an effort to destroy incriminating video footage the characters made their way into a weaver domain within the Umbra. Assisted by Veronika Lam, Uratha and Rattlehead tracked down the data while the other packmates assisted Joseph in creating a diversion.

Climbing on top of the tower they were in to cut the webbing holding structures together managed to attract the attention of the weaver spirits but as they made to escape Jason fell down the side of the building (ripping his claws out in the process) with Halley on his back. Sean dived over the edge with a cable in hand and was able to catch the pair before falling to their doom.

Meanwhile Uratha, Rattlehead and Veronika crawled into a nexus of information. While searching for the information Uratha received visions of a man in a lab, scientists performing strange experiments and possibly most disturbingly a vision of the pack being watched during the raid on the Northwest Recycling plant. Finally Uratha found the digital entity of the incriminating footage.

The video footage was found and destroyed while the packmates managed to hold off angry pattern spiders long enough for everyone to escape. Even Sean put his packmate’s lives before himself in a rare moment of inspired leadership, saving Jason and Halley and ensuring everyone made it to the exit portal safely.

And yet all is not yet perfect. Jason is making his way to work with a bloody hand and little more than an hours sleep. Uratha received disturbing visions of the pack being watched and while the pink fomor have been either killed or saved from possession, what creates them or who is targeting the homeless is still not well understood. What it all means still remains to be seen…
