Retcon – week 7 – Matt dreams about Shamayal – can tell that she has aligned interests and is still at least in part the person you knew before the incident you all suffered. She is dangerous but you don’t believe to you or your friends.
Week 7 thursday
- preparing for the meeting with Marcus’s Organization and his boss (invisible ‘deader’ that Michael saw and mentally talked to).
*Discussion – not agreeing to anything at the meeting, they will ask for time to consider first. What can they offer? Show of good faith requests?
Players all cast buffs on self, and come armed. They Aura Fix Shamayal to look like a mage
Arrive at location:
- Party walk up to the Heavy door and hit a button to talk on the side, camera swivels to view them, door opens.
-Party walk into a room with a door to the right and the left, the door to the right clicks open and the lights in the next hallway turn on. Continue down long hallway, camera tracks progress, Heavy door at the end opens. Next room is a comfortable waiting room with couch-chairs against two walls and tables in front of them. Two other doors, both heavily reinforced.
After less than a minute Marcus Crassus enters from the left door, and greets them. He asks them to leaves their weapons with Gus and the other door opens to show a heavily built man in a business suit, with another similarly outfitted smaller man behind him. They take the parties weapons and then those items seem to disappear. Kyle is able to sense then overcome the illusion and see shelves and racks of weaponry lining the walls and watches the two men take the items and slip them into the illusion.
Marcus then leads them down a set of steps, that seem to go on forever and cause the players to stratch their heads as to far how and in what direction they were going. They arrive at what appears to be a blast door which clicks open. He motions them all inside a nicely outfitted conference room with a projector, 10 chairs, and a beautiful oak table. He asks them to sit, and then seats himself at the left-side head of the table. the party situates themselves in a specific order.
A women who Michael recognizes walks into the room, wearing silicon valley business casual t-shirt and long skirt. She introduces herself as Liandra M’nere and with non-committal and veiled language talks to them about her organization, the M’nere Clan , as well as the Invictus and some other groups.
The conversation stays friendly, the party also meets Claire Kindler a hacker who brings them in drinks/snacks and Peter M’nere a doctor for the clan who sits in on the talks.
Friday: there is a party near Chris’s place, and he ends up encountering Dove and Azir two Carthian deaders. Things get hostile when he resists some ability of Dove’s and then Azir chases after him. Chris uses a friction curse and then invisibility to get away, then resolves to move.
