Section 7

Section 7: the prelude
campaign brief

Section 7 was started in 1988 by the individual known only as S.O.R. S.O.R. was a visionary for coming up with the idea of a company that would unite the Garou and some of the other Fera who would be willing to work with Gaia’s warriors to combat the wyrm in the weaver’s playground. It would also do some more extreme monkey wrenching with Pentex acting as a competitor company. It started off as one office in Vancouver and has expanded from there. Most of its first recruits were Ronin and those Fera whose ideals were considered extreme. As Section 7’s influence grew they could expand to recruitment of Garou and Fera who were more main stream.

S.O.R. keeps their identity secret and only communicates through computer and coded cellphone calls with a computer generated voice. His second in command is a Silver Fang named Falcon’s Frost who is well known for his restrictive need to fallow protocol.

First Day
Not every job is easy

Four Garou are hired to Section seven right off their rite of passage. Speaks through tongues a Stargazer, Mel “Brews the Spirits”, Tosh “Blue Screen” a GlassWalker, and Truth in the Morning a Shadow Lord. The groups first mission is to investigate a Kinfolk murders.

They found a Black Fury kinfolk girl killed at first Ave club in downtown dumped in a dumpster behind the building. They brought the body back to the morgue where they found a roman number carved into her thigh “I”. The group discovered that a similar case where 14 Garou kinfolk plus a Ratkin kinfolk were killed 20 years ago [1990]in California each with a roman numeral carved into their body. Speaks through tongues and Truth of Morning decided they would try to investigate what had happened in the 1990 case.

Tosh “Blue Screen” and Mel “Brews the Spirits” stay at the Section 7 headquarters. Tosh used some of her contacts to see if any other kinfolk had been killed recently. Unfortunately All Tosh found out was that both Speaks through tongues and Truth in the Morning had been killed.

Mel “Brews the Spirits” left to take sometime to come to terms with what had happened while Tosh “Blue Screen” decided to join the next team that would be heading the investigation.

Body count keeps rising
Kinfolk keep being murdered

Mouse Pad calls a meeting with Tosh “Blue Screen”. She introduces her to the rest of the group that will be joining her Cedric “Thunder clap”, Silent Strike with Andrea Walker a kinfolk. Mouse Pad also assigns Thomas Smith ‘Tommy’ to work with them.

Tosh “Blue Screen” takes the new pack down stairs to where the body of the Black Fury [I] kinfolk was being kept. After arriving downstairs the group find two more bodies. A Bone Gnawer [III] and a Ratkin [IV]. Silent Strike asks if any other bodies have come in which it is revealed that they haven’t found it. There is a short discussion on why the number skipped before Andrea Walker points out that it might be a Black Spiral dancer.

Cedric “Thunder clap” hears someone crying and decides to investigate finding it to be the ghost of the young Black Fury kinfolk. She says her name is Tessa and she’s 16. Cedric tries to get some information on the murder but Tessa refuses to think about it. All she says is she was stabbed. She asks him why she had to die, why it had to be her when she had so much more she wanted to do with her life. She also reveals she was in love. Cedric admits he doesn’t know why this happened to her but promises to find out what happened.

Silent Strike suggests that they go to the scenes of the crime to figure out what information they can find out. At 1st Ave club they get access to the video footage from the My fallout cab @ the disco concert where they see Tessa with a very tall women with bright pink hair most of the night. But when the women leaves to use the toilet someone in a dark hoodie leads Tessa out of the club where they assume she was murdered. Cedric “Thunder clap” goes into the umbra to try and get information but the pattern spiders refuse to be of any help. On the real-side Silent Strike makes Tommy go into the dumpster to see if he can find any evidence. After 20 minuets he find a cellphone.

Meanwhile at the next scene of the murders is found to be the Thunderbird hotel in Bloomington were there is an Anime con going on. Tosh “Blue Screen” distracts the Police while Andrea Walker sneaks into the hotel room using the kin gift “Echos” to find out the Ratkin kinfolk had let the B.G. kin ion to get a free meal before they were attacked [one broken neck the other beaten to death with a phone].

The pack meet back up to try and figure out where the next body would end up. Cedric tries to get some help from the spirits. Tosh and Andrea use their contacts to find a lead, a man was found hung in Fort sneilling park. With their combined influences Andrea and Tosh get the police to back off so Section seven can get the first look. the group makes Tommy carry their gear down to the site of the hanging BSD Kinfolk [II] then send him off to get them coffee and doughnuts.

Cedric “Thunder clap” gets a little help from the tree spirit the BSD kinfolk was hanged on revealing that something was fallowing whatever was happening in the real world. Tosh “Blue Screen” & Silent Strike collect some evidence. Andrea Walker talks to a rabbit who gives a rough description of the murdering matching the same as the person on the video.

Andrea Walker makes a call to Mouse Pad letting her know what they’ve found out. Mouse Pad asks they go contact the Black fury sept “Artemis’ Bow” in Farmington since they haven’t been able to get any contact with them thus far to let them know about Tessa’s death. Andrea asks Tommy to order and pay for a Pizza when he arrives with the coffee and snacks to be delivered to the Black Fury sept.

When the pack arrives at the sept Andrea sticks his foot in his mouth with his “Btw, Tessa, that kinfolk chick is totally dead. Kthanks.” Tosh “Blue Screen” suggests Tommy stay and watch the cars as the rest enter the sept. Cedric “Thunder clap” takes the responsibility for Andrea’s behavior even though Silent Strike is the Alpha which they accept. Cedric stays and explains what happened to Tessa to the Elders of the sept as the rest sneak off to check out her room.

In her room Silent Strike finds a couple gray hound bus tickets hidden under the floor boards. Tosh “Blue Screen” finds an odd post card. And Andrea Walker hacks her computer and finds her Livejournal. After reading through he find she was in a ‘super secret’ relationship with a Get kinfolk named Eric. He also finds a message mentioning the post card and how their were at least one kin of each tribe there and he figures who will be the next victim will be a C.O.G. kin named Alice. He contacts her over Instant messaging pretending to be Tessa asking her to meet her at a close by Denny’s.

Andrea Walker also noticed Tommy’s name in the list of kinfolk who got the post card but keeps it to himself for the time.

Echos of the past is introduced to Silent Strike as the person who had been with Tessa at the concert. Echos admits she thought Tessa had run off with Eric. She begs to come along so that she can regain her honor for losing Tessa in the first place. The group agrees and they head out to the Denny’s.

Once at the Denny’s Silent Strike orders Tommy to go inside and wait for the kinfolk to show up. Tosh “Blue Screen” and Andrea Walker wait in the alley near the back door. Silent Strike and Echos of the past wait out front. And Cedric “Thunder clap” waits in the Umbra.

Alice the C.O.G. kinfolk shows up but she brings Ross [The Fianna kinfolk] and Eric [Tessa’s love and the Get kinfolk on the list]. Tommy is slightly panicked but he is told to stay put. Silent Strike goes into the Denny’s to get a better look around leaving Echos alone out front.

Meanwhile in the umbra Cedric “Thunder clap” sees a Lune spirit appear out of nowhere along with a spirit that’s shape keeps changing. Cedric senses that it is wyrm tainted and goes after it before being kidnapped along with Echos.

As Tosh “Blue Screen” and Andrea Walker are in the Alley a hoddied person appears around the same time as the spirit. Tosh and Andrea open fire on the person only to notice that they seem to move too fast to be hit by bullets. Tosh makes the choice to grab one of the explosives out of her bag and drop it on the ground at the person’s feet yelling at Andrea “RUN MOTHERF*CKERS!”.

Silent Strike and Tommy try to get as many people out of the Denny’s before Tosh’s plan goes into motion. Tosh pushes the “Panic” button on her phone. As Tosh tries to sidestep she notices the rating has been drastically increased so she can’t sidestep. Andrea runs with all his speed to get out of the Alley as the bomb goes off also lighting up the rest of Tosh “Blue Screen”’s explosives killing both her and the person. The Denny’s explodes in fiery glory.

Falling out from Exploded Denny's

Meanwhile at the office The entire Minnesota office is on Code Red after the Princess Peach button has been pressed. Mouse Pad drafts Deanna Wyld’s Grace and Meave “Banshee Cry” on to active duty to go with her to help figure out what happened at the Denny’s in Farmington. She also gets Mel “Brews the Spirits” off her sick leave.

the entire Section 7 office comes to the Denny’s. Songs of Season ie [S.O.S.] handles deal with the Police and Fire department to get them to give Section 7 priority over the case claiming to be HomeLand security Section 7.

Mouse Pad goes to where Silent Strike is waiting amongst the scattered survivors of the explosion. Andrea Walker is in bad shape not escape the blast in time. Tommy is handing out stuffed animals from the broken Crane Machine game to the survivors.

Mouse Pad gets a healer to revive Andrea Walker as she screams at Silent Strike demanding to know what happened. Silent Strike explains what had been the plan and how Tosh “Blue Screen” died. Mouse Pad expresses frustration over the cock-up and assigns Deanna Wyld’s Grace, Mel “Brews the Spirits”, and Meave “Banshee Cry” to the team.

Mouse Pad asks Silent Strike what happened to Echos of the past and Cedric “Thunder clap”. Silent Strike admits she isn’t sure where they were. Mouse Pad demands that they find and recover the two missing members.

Mel “Brews the Spirits” hears a ghost on the other side and goes to investigating thinking it might be Tosh “Blue Screen” instead she finds it to be a 9 year old who was a ghost muttering to herself in the umbra. Mel “Brews the Spirits” takes Meave “Banshee Cry” with her as they interview the girl. The girl claims to be “Awakened” and that she had found an object that would help improve her ‘sphere of influence over the spirit world’ improve, she claimed it to be a ‘wonder’. She claimed the spirit the spirit offered her a deal because it was trapped in the library that if she released it all her wishes would come true but that it had someone’s wishes to fulfill first. The girl agreed but the spirit took over her body and now she was dead. Mel “Brews the Spirits” offered to call someone to take the girl “home” but the girl claimed her “tradition” was coming to pick her up.

Mel and Meave cross back to the other side and warn everyone else. Mel “Brews the Spirits” looks for anything tainted in the area and finds a minivan filled with a lot of weird objects [a fob watch, a wooden flute, a vile of blood, a necklace and a dream-catcher] and a sleeping bag. Meave “Banshee Cry” finds the necklace to be the main tainted thing, trying to cleanse it but even though it should have worked it was still tainted. They hand the objects to Mousepad.

Meanwhile Cedric “Thunder clap” finds himself in an odd place in the umbra that looks like a child’s playroom. He sense the bane near by and think he hears crying. A Lune spirit [the same one that the bane had convinced to attack him] appears saying it is going to save him. The lune grabs him and takes him a cross a moon bridge dropping him off on the Umbral side of the Denny’s. He meets the little girl ghost as well. He asks her how she died and she told him that the spirit had taken over her body. Cedric realizes that the spirit or bane has been using a real-side counterpart and apologizes for not being able to save her. She accepts his apology but warns him her ‘tradition will not be as forgiving’ and he crosses back.

Andrea Walker wakes up from his injures and has a private conversation with Mouse Pad where she offers resistance to letting him stay with the pack but agrees to let him continue.

When Cedric “Thunder clap” comes back he along with Meave “Banshee Cry”, and Mel “Brews the Spirits” warn the Section 7 people there for the clean up that something is coming. The clean up crew pull out leaving the scene to be taken care of by the team except for Grease Trap who offers her help since they are with out a fighter.

Mel “Brews the Spirits”, Meave “Banshee Cry”, and Deanna Wyld’s Grace decide to leave the scene too. Tommy asks if he can go with since he doesn’t want to die. Andrea calls him a ‘wuss’ and the rest of the original team tries to pressure him into staying. Meave takes Tommy along with them anyways. Andrea and Tommy exchange a couple text messages about whether or not having sex with Meave when she offers it is a good idea or not. Tommy goes ahead with it anyways.

Andrea Walker hides in the blown up alley way while Silent Strike Blurs and peaks in the Umbra. Vacates-the-Premises waits with a gun on her hip for the trouble to start while Cedric “Thunder clap” goes across the street to offer back up if needed. A police officer rolls by and tries to give Vacates a little trouble but Andrea uses his influences to make the officer leave.

Silent Strike sees in the umbra what looks to be a ship drift in and take the girl onto their ship and then leave again. She says the trouble left making most of the group depressed and head back to the main office.

When back at the main office the group finds out that the C.O.G. [Alice V] and the Fianna [Ross VI] kinfolk died on the way home from the Denny’s but Eric [Get Kinfolk] is still alive and was put under house arrest until things got sorted. Andrea Walker reveals to MousePad that Thomas Smith is next on the list. Mouse Pad agrees that Andrea take Tommy out and try to keep him safe.

After Andrea and Tommy have left Mouse Pad tells the rest of the group that Tommy is next. They all decide to fallow the 2 kinfolk to the Bone Bone Gnawer sept in Minneapolis “People serving People” [also named after and located in the homeless shelter].

Andrea Walker tells Tommy the bad news who freaks out a little bit. Silent Strike shadows the 2 kinfolk in blur at all times.

Meave “Banshee Cry”, Mel “Brews the Spirits”, and Deanna Wyld’s Grace sit around watching the kinfolk but mostly just Sing and talk.

Rittimer “Juggles Frag Grenades” had gotten intel from S.O.S. to go to this bar and has been sitting in the back of the room watching everything.

Cedric “Thunder clap” stands near the edge of the bawn waiting for the physical tool of the spirit/bane to show up. After a couple minuets Echos of the past shows up. Cedric is over joyed that she escaped as well. Echos says that the Section 7 office told her to met them at the bar. Cedric takes her in closer to everyone else as he goes back to being on watch.

Tommy gets up from the bar to go to the toilet with Andrea Walker and Silent Strike fallowing. At the same time Echos of the past walks into the woman’s room.

Bar fight
"Just wanted a quiet drink."

Andrea Walker and Thomas Smith are in the Men’s room using the urinal talking about Tommy’s lack of a sex life. Silent Strike is in the bathroom with them Blurred half temped to smack Andrea into the wall when her Danger sense goes off. She drops Blur and screams “GET OUT NOW” as a similar shaped person in a hoodie and gloves walks through the wall in front of the 2 kinfolk. Tommy screams dropping to the ground. Andrea pulls out both of his guns and Silent aims her bow at the shape.

Deanna Wyld’s Grace, Meave “Banshee Cry” and Mel “Brews the Spirits” bolt for the bathroom at the sound of Tommy screaming. Some of the other people in the bar run. Rittimer “Juggles Frag Grenades” moves slightly so he has a better shot into the bathroom.

Cedric “Thunder clap” realizes that Echos of the past must have been the spirit’s real world tool. He relays this over pack-link as he crosses umbral side to try and stop the bane. He notices the spirit [he sense that it is a bane now] looks like Athena now. The Bane turns to Cedric and frowns, suddenly the ground in the umbra start to shake horribly. Cedric loses his balance and then feels the spirit rip into his mind leaving him motionless.

On the Real side Meave “Banshee Cry” grabs Tommy and drags him out of the bathroom. Andrea Walker, Deanna Wyld’s Grace, Silent Strike, Rittimer “Juggles Frag Grenades” and Mel “Brews the Spirits” fight the possessed Echos of the past. The notice that she is stronger then she used to be. Silent feels Cedric ripped from pack-link but continues fighting.

Echos of the past balefires the Bathroom only killing Andrea Walker. The rest of the group on the real kill Echos of the past fairly quick afterward.

Meave “Banshee Cry” tells Tommy to stay outside as she goes to back in. She also tells Tommy to call Mouse Pad.

Rittimer “Juggles Frag Grenades” introduces himself to the rest of the group then starts to clean up the mess of the fight. Mel “Brews the Spirits” relieves that Andrea Walker has become a ghost himself.

Mouse Pad arrives seeming to use Bridge Walker. The entire group feel as if Mouse Pad is over flowing with more rage then should be possible not to be in frenzy. Mouse Pad demands to know what happened. Rittimer “Juggles Frag Grenades” tactlessly tells her that Andrea Walker is dead and Cedric “Thunder clap” has been ripped from pack link but none of them feel like going to the other side to help Cedric or take care of the spirit that’s there. Mouse Pad crosses to the Umbral side with a growl.

S.O.S. appears shortly after and tells the rest of the group to go back to the office.

Mouse Pad saves Cedric
This is completelly OOC to everyone who wasn't there.

Mouse Pad appears on the Umbral side. She seems to reach into Cedric “Thunder clap”’s mind and free him of the Bane. The Bane’s shape changes from Athena to Grandfather thunder then to an odd mix of a great deal of things( A Scanner Darkly has a good example, watch the trailer to see what I mean).

Mouse Pad then uses an Elder Bone Gnawers gift [infest] to take on the bane. As soon as it looks like the Bane is about to die Mouse Pad uses an Elder Galliard gift making it so the Bane can never come back again.

My Fallout Cab @ the Disco concerts always end in death...

It’s been a month since the last mission the team was on. They get a phone call at 9pm telling them to meet in the main office building.

Deanna Wyld’s Grace says goodnight to her daughter and kisses her husband good bye as she heads to the office. Silent Strike goes up to the meeting room the the shooting range in the basement. Rittimer “Juggles Frag Grenades” hires a sitter to watch his young metis daughter. Cedric “Thunder clap” leaves his room and head up quickly. Meave “Banshee Cry” kisses Tommy goodbye running off to the meeting. And shepards the wicked a Silver Fang lupus is waiting in the meeting room.

Mouse Pad makes the announcement that the Section 7 office that is still pretty new has run into some trouble with a * My Fallout cab @ the disco* concert ( Cedric “Thunder clap” & Silent Strike give each other a worried look). Apparently a bunch of Garou frenzyed at the concert and there are a lot of humans trapped inside. there are unconfirmed reports that all of the band is dead except one Aiko Tenoh (or Tenoh, Aiko). Mouse Pad asks them to go and help them out. She says she wants them to get going soon but they have a couple of minuets to get supplies.

Rittimer “Juggles Frag Grenades” and Silent Strike both go to the forge in the basement where “Micky” gives them some silver bullets and arrows. Rittimer also checks the Section 7 files on My fallout cab @ the disco finding out its a very popular indie/emo band and that Tenoh, Aiko is the drummer and the only girl. He also finds from google that Aiko is the most popular member of the band and she came over from Japan shortly before the band started [2008]. Rittimer then goes to Glasswalker-net to see if there is any further information there.

He runs into a couple posts about how a lot of strange things seem to happen around concerts. He looks to see if any of his fellow tribe members who filed a report are online only finding one, “bad for business” a ragabash cliath from Texas. He reports that they have seen a large number of leeches seem to show an interest in the band. B.F.B. also reports that none of the bad seemed wyrm tainted but there was something ‘strange’ about Aiko. Rittimer also finds that the band that opened for them that night is called “Within Nightfall” which is a very low key rock band that’s only played a couple of concerts.

The group takes a Moon Bridge to the Iowa office where they are greeted warmly by “Starbucks” who takes them to the helicopter waiting for them. shepards the wicked being a lupus tries to convince the rest of the group not to go by the fearful Weaver-bird but is tricked onto it.

After arriving at an outdoor theater that was made in a ditch. They find that Zell the leader of the Iowa office was the first on the scene. He admits he doesn’t know what happened but his daughter was at the concert and he wants her extracted but has had his beta use a Black Fury gift to keep everyone inside so not to rend the veil.

Rittimer “Juggles Frag Grenades” uses a gift to look inside the closed off area seeing that the daughter is inside being protected by a young Africa American women in her 20s who is also protecting some others. He also sees a lot of crinos formed Garou continued in frenzy and lots of humans trapped running around.

Zell drops the ward as the team heads in. Silent Strike decides to use blur and fly over the crowd to get a better look. Meave “Banshee Cry” decides to stay outside and heal anyone who comes out. Rittimer “Juggles Frag Grenades” finds a good snipping point and sets up.

Cedric “Thunder clap” & shepards the wicked decide to head into the fray to see if they can find the cause of the trouble. Deanna Wyld’s Grace and Mel “Brews the Spirits” make a point to get humans out the exits.

Deanna Wyld’s Grace saves a young girl who seemed to be looking around lost and a couple of panicking humans. Mel “Brews the Spirits” guides out a man in his early thirties out who seemed to be trying to knock out a crinos along with somemore panicked humans.

Rittimer “Juggles Frag Grenades” snipes a couple Garou who were all going after a 60 year old women who had in toe a bunch of girl-scouts.

shepards the wicked draws some of the attention of some Garou away from some of the Garou who were chasing some fleeing humans knocking the Garou out.

Cedric “Thunder clap” notices that none of the Garou are within 20 feet of the 20 year old women who is protecting the children and decides to direct others out.

Silent Strike gets insight of the stage and notices all the band members are dead except Aiko who is being held by four women while a fifth women stands singing on stage. Silent Strike senses the women [Members of Within Nightfall] are extremely tainted and instructs the rest of the group to go after them.

Silent Strike, Cedric “Thunder clap” and Rittimer “Juggles Frag Grenades” focus all their attention on killing the women singing seems to have some control over the crowd.

Deanna Wyld’s Grace and Mel “Brews the Spirits” finally get to 20 feet of the women protecting a group when shepards the wicked draws the frenzying Garou’s attention again. The women pleads, “Leave us alone, please!” Deanna response, “We’re here to help. Don’t be afraid.” The women seems to relax as Mel and Deanna help her get out of the hall.

After Rittimer kills the women singing (who dusts) another gets off of Aiko to start singing but is killed by Cedric. Aiko suddenly changes shape turning into a Kitsune going into a type of frenzy as she rips apart another women. Silent Strike kills the other two as Cedric picks up the past out Aiko.

After all the Garou who where frenzying pass out the group leaves the theater glad to be done with this mission. There is a short discussion of the team trying to convince shepards the wicked back onto the helicopter before he relents.

As the group flies closer to where the Iowa office should be they notice what looks like a lot of smoke and fire. As they get closer they see the office has explodes leaving bodies scattered and debris all over but what was the center of the building. As the helicopter flies closer they notice that seemingly written in flames it the message: YOU’VE TAKEN FROM ME NOW I’LL TAKE FROM YOU.

Got to be somebody
The aftermath

Rittimer “Juggles Frag Grenades” upon seeing the message in the rubble panics and tries to get the polite to turn the helicopter back to Minnesota thinking it might be a message from someone in his past. shepards the wicked makes a comment about how running in fear and abandaning their allies in a time of need seems foolish which is met by most of the party telling him he doesn’t know anything since he’s just a lupus. Silent Strike suggests that they see if there is anyone still alive before they flee.

From the helicopter they notice at least one person might still be alive. They decide to land close by. Deanna Wyld’s Grace and shepards the wicked decide to stay in the helicopter to make sure it doesn’t take off. Cedric “Thunder clap” leaves them as he walks off to make a phone call.

Silent Strike looks around to see if she can find anything useful in the mess. She finds a golden watch, a locked brief case, a shoe, a brick with M.M. signed on it, and a fetish laptop.

Meave “Banshee Cry”, Mel “Brews the Spirits”, and Rittimer “Juggles Frag Grenades” go to the one person whose still alive. He’s badly injured but the manage to heal him enough to get him up to talking. He claims that they were ambushed and then he dies. Upon looking over his body they find shards of Silver and Gold in his skin.

Everyone except Cedric “Thunder clap” get back on the helicopter. They get a message from Mouse Pad to go to a secondary landing point as not to lead who ever blew up the Iowa office from fallowing them back. The team lands at a small air strip in Aitkin, Minnesota. Upon arriving they are met by Beats Back Death who says she will lead them through the secret passage back to the office.

Mel “Brews the Spirits” senses no wyrm in the area and goes down the hole to find a bunch of tunnels. Meave “Banshee Cry”, Rittimer “Juggles Frag Grenades”, and Deanna Wyld’s Grace fallow after her. shepards the wicked resists going into the tunnel as it is a mode of travel the Black Spiral Dancers use. He is once again told to be quiet by the group because he’s a lupus. Shepard goes into the hole after Beats Back Death and Silent Strike.

After getting to the office they are called up top a meeting room. Mouse Pad takes the brief case from Silent Strike and revels to the group that a lot of the newer Section 7 offices have been destroyed recently. She claims that Frost of Falcon wants to keep it under their hats but Mouse Pad thinks it’s stupid. She suggests that maybe gathering some of the people from other offices might keep them safer. She tells them they have free choice on missions.

shepards the wicked leaves the group tired of being treated like an Omega for no reason.

Black Fury troubles
Tommy's past comes back to haunt him

Early in the next morning Rittimer “Juggles Frag Grenades” hears a call over the radio for security at the front desk. He decides to jog down to see what is going on. He sees Becca, the receptionist, panickly dealing with a Black Fury who is demanding to see Taddeo Konstantinos. Becca reassures the Black Fury that no one by that name lives there and that they are simply a Graphic Design firm. The Black Fury shows a necklace that is pointing up saying that the rite of the questing stone disagrees and demands her property be returned to her. Rittimer tells her to cool off and stop scarring poor Becca.

The Black Fury introduces herself as Prowls in Darkness and hands Rittimer a Washington State ID with Tommy’s picture on it demanding he bring her brother to her. Silent Strike enters wondering what the loud noises are to be exposed to the scene. Becca flees her desk saying she’s going to get Songs Of Sorrow, Rittimer “Juggles Frag Grenades” fallows after her asking Silent Strike to watch the Black Fury. Deanna Wyld’s Grace shows up to work and is trapped in the lobby with Prawls and Silent Strike.

S.O.S. is still in her pjs when Becca and Rittimer run into her. Becca tells S.O.S. that Thomas’ family is here. S.O.S. lets out a string of swears before calling Mouse Pad and getting her orders. She tells Rittimer to fetch Tommy ‘just in case’.

Meave “Banshee Cry” is informed through pack-link that someone is down stairs looking for Tommy claiming to be his sister. When Meave asks Tommy about it, Tommy refuses to leave the room begging Meave not to make him go down stairs. Meave offers to go with Tommy and protect him which he agrees to. Meave and Tommy stand off to the side to watch the conversation without being scene.

S.O.S. confronts Prowls in Darkness telling her that they have no one by the name she's requested. S.O.S. then tells Prowls to leave the building quickly. Prowls attacks S.O.S. to the ground. Silent Strike drops Shroud to try and keep combat from breaking out. Rittimer eggs Prawls on to try and get a location on her so he can shoot her. Prowls once again demands that her property be returned to her, calling them out on violating the 3rd tenet [Respect the Territory of Another] of the litany.

Deanna Wyld’s Grace frenzys and kills Prowls in Darkness. S.O.S. was apparently hurt more then thought first and is rushed to the medical wing. Meave “Banshee Cry” claims Tommy as he kinfolk. Mel “Brews the Spirits” comes down just in time to see the aftermath and is exceedingly confused.

Amber eyes comes to the group and tells them it’s time to fill out their paper work and decide their next mission. The group has a long discussion they decide that they should go recruit members from different offices but Silent Strike and Mel decide to go bring back Prowls in Darkness’ body home.

Deanna Wyld’s Grace is given the rest of the day off and is sent home. Meave “Banshee Cry” decides to try and calm Tommy down from watching his sister be murdered.

Mel “Brews the Spirits” and Silent Strike head out for the L.A. Section 7 office to get transport to the Sept of Forgotten Sun. Unknown to them Rittimer “Juggles Frag Grenades” fallows after them ten minuets later.

Upon arriving at the Section 7 in L.A. they are greeted warmly by Eclair “Purifying Flame” C.O.G. Theurge who lets them know that that sept of Black Furies is not some place she’d suggest they’d go alone but Silent Strike informs her they’ll be fine. Mel and Silent Strike borrow a car taking Prowls body back to the sept.

When Rittimer “Juggles Frag Grenades” arrives Eclair greets him as warmly and offers him some tea. Rittimer agrees to a cup of tea as she informs him that there is no way they’ll let him on to their sept because he’s a male. She also says they don’t even have male metis on the sept, only male kinfolk. She also suggests that she thinks it’s slightly wyrm tainted. Rittimer accepts her warning but informs he he wants to make sure his pack is safe. Eclair then takes him to a closet full of clothes and tells him to cross dress.

Upon arriving at the Black Fury’s Sept Silent Strike and Mel introduce themselves. They are showed around the sept noticing that it is entirely female and no signs of any male kinfolk. Mel starts to tell the group of Elders that Prowls had come to the sept they were members of looking for a kin that they had never heard of. Silent strike tells Mel to be quiet as she tells the sept that Deanna Wyld’s Grace frenzied on Prowls in Darkness and murdered her. The group of Elder’s become enraged plotting the death of Wyld’s grace for killing the Sept Alpha’s daughter.

Silent Strike and Mel “Brews the Spirits” are then taken to the cabins where the male kinfolk are kept. Mel notices that each of the houses have a family name marked on it. As the Warder goes in to fetch Prowls’ father [also Tommy’s] the two garou notice the sounds of non-consensual sex. When the Father is dragged out Silent strike repeats the same story to him. He accepts it and Mel heals his as much as she can by shaking his hand before the two flee the sept.

Rittimer “Juggles Frag Grenades” waits until after Silent Strike and Mel are off the sept before going forward to introduce himself claiming to be a female [with help of a spirit from Eclair]. He is shown the sept as well and is more unnerved by the obvious decline. He goes to the group of Elders giving a more ambiguous series of events. The Elders agree not to hunt down Deanna Wyld’s Grace and kill her. He is also guided to the kinfolk cabins but is left alone there. He assures Tommy’s father that his son is safe and sound before leaving.

Dealing with Madame
Not all information is free

Meave “Banshee Cry” goes into labor shortly after the rite was finished. The Rites Master of the Chased Madian opens a moon bridge back to the the Section 7 office in Minneapolis.

Deanna Wyld’s Grace discusses with the rest of the pack what they would like to do next. She suggests that they finish the recruitment in Florida but be careful not to draw the attention of “Never Asks Twice”. Rittimer “Juggles Frag Grenades” mentions that she has some ‘family’ business to attend to.

Rita headed down to the intel department of the Miami office to ask for any information on the picture he had received from Mouse Pad. The person in charge gives what little information he has. The girl in the photo is known as Cendrillon Bonville who has been seen at the Chinese restaurant in one of the worse part of town. They don’t know what or who she really might be. Rittimer “Juggles Frag Grenades” was given the address and wished luck.

She shared what Intel she had received and told the rest of the pack she was leaving. Mel “Brews the Spirits” asks Her alpha if she may tag along with ‘Rita’ to keep her safe. Deanna Wyld’s Grace agrees to the choice. Silent Strike and Oni Marked sneak off to fallow ‘Rita’ without her knowledge leaving Deanna to recruit alone.

Deanna Wyld’s Grace contacts “Wings of swift glory” who agrees to distract “Never Asks Twice” while she recruits members of the office. Deanna got a total of 15 members to defect from the office before she ran into Jafari “Pale-Horse” someone she had gone through her rite of passage with. After a heated conversation she convinced him to defect to the Minnesota office.

Rittimer “Juggles Frag Grenades” and Mel “Brews the Spirits” walk into the restaurant finding it to be ala carte buffet. After both ordered their meals [Rita ordering a more traditional meal and Mel a very ‘american’ safe bet] they hear a door opening from behind the kitchen.

Silent Strike used Blur of the Milky eye to sneak into the restaurant behind Rita and Mel. Oni Marked peaked into the umbra noticing a Blood Bane. He made the choice to cross to the Umbra to kill it.

A women asked if either of the workers had seen someone by Rittimer “Juggles Frag Grenades”’s male description. Rita announces herself to the restaurant. The women send the workers out as she greets the two she can see of the pack. Both notice she is wearing a silver made dog collar. She bows and advises Rita she has to go into combat with her to confirm her identity. After a shot time of combat the women bows and take the two up stairs to Madame Cendrillon Bonville. Silent Strike sneaks up behind them as they are taken to the apartment that outshines the surrounding neighborhood.

Madame seems to have been living with a great amount of riches. She greets Rita and Mel warmly offering them tea. The women [main protector] bows out of the room and leaves. Rita accepts the offer of tea while Mel declines. They met yet another servant wearing a silver collar who serves them tea. Silent Strike explores the apartment, letting Rita and Mel know for the first time she is with them. Oni Marked after defeating the blood bane moves in the umbra to be behind Madame.

Madame explains to Rita that she was the man she knew as Desmond’s ‘sister’ as being sired at the same time and by the same person [evident by a painting she has of the two of them together]. She laments the fact that Desmond has carried on this obsession with Rita’s family. Offers that she knows Desmond has a few shifters working for him which is her reason for having the servants she does for her own protection. She also offers that he has been ‘eating the souls’ of her kind to gain strength and that he showed up in France 5 month ago [which Rita connects to the time the Paris Office exploded] and she’s had to go underground.

Mel “Brews the Spirits” gets up from the room to keep from frenzying to keep from killing Madame before Rita is done getting her information. Madame explains Desmond has become paranoid about those who know his true name and has been destroying those who know his past. Rita asks Madame why she is offering to help her. Madame explains that she wants to give Rita what information she has as Desmond will be coming for her soon and she’d like Rita to destroy Desmond for her.

During this time Silent Strike has discovered that there is a total of 5 ‘ghouled’ garou with silver collars. She tries to open seal them but is unsuccessful. She find the living area for the servants to be a couple mats on the ground in a windowless room that is filthy. She then finds Madame’s bedroom to be stacked with paintings, boxes and other treasures. She also finds a large locked box shoved in a corner.

Rittimer “Juggles Frag Grenades” demands what intel Madame has on Desmond and she brings forth another servant, the youngest of them, to bring out a large box to give to Rita. The girl mouths discretely to Rita to “Help” before leaving the room again. Rita sends over pack link that they should kill Madame. She gets up to leave only to open the door to let the party back up stairs.

Oni Marked sidesteps in his breed form and tries to take off Madame’s head only to have his sword vibrate in his hand as it connects. Deanna Wyld’s Grace and Jafari “Pale-Horse” arrive to the scene shortly before combat starts running up the stairs. Mel “Brews the Spirits” also goes up stairs to join in the combat. Rita tosses the box out the door and goes back up fallowed by Madame’s protector. Rita shoots at Madame. Pale Horse claws. Mel bites. Deanna slices with her labrys and Oni throws fire. Madame controls tentacles to try and combat them away as her protector tries to block the attacks from hitting Madame. Silent strike meanwhile unlocks the box to find an almost blindingly bright glowing ball which she tosses at Madame. All the attacks kill Madame causing her Protector to frenzy but because of the Silver collar keeping her from changing forms.

Rittimer “Juggles Frag Grenades”, Deanna Wyld’s Grace, and Jafari “Pale-Horse” flee from the building because it has started on fire heading back to the Section 7 office in the area to moon bridge back to Minnesota.

Oni Marked falling touches the frenzying protector and leads out the rest of the servents at great harm to himself by the amount of silver. Silent Strike find a key in the ashes of Madame which she assumes will open the collars. Mel “Brews the Spirits” goes through Madame’s room grabbing some books and paintings that may be important. Silent Strike find a Fang Dager in what had been the servant’s room.

Mel, silent Strike, and Oni load the servants in the car as they flee the scene to a isolated location to see if they can cleanse the servants. The youngest of the servants grabs on to Silent Strike crying and thanking her. She reveals she doesn’t remember much except that she was taken.

Mel “Brews the Spirits” comes up with the idea after the collars are taken off that clear water might do a bit of the trick which does seem to bring some emotions forth from the other 3. “Winter’s strength” a Wendigo Philodox Cliath reveals he was taken shortly after his rite of passage at the sept of ma’iingan Heart. Another servant Jontae [who served the tea] syas he was taken from the Bone Gnawer sept near the Arc de Triomphe.

Oni Marked takes the girl who can’t remember her name to the umbra who reveals her name to be Anne, a cub who went missing from the sept of the Chased Maiden a few months back. Oni also recognized the purebreed on the only other servant who wasn’t still frenzying, Zhong Lung. She says her name is Amelia [who brought out the painting] and her mother died and her Dad was ‘away’ when she changes and was taken by the evil women. Oni asked which Wallow her father belonged to, causing her to relax enough to admit her Father was Mokole but her mother was an ‘Egg crusher’. She says her father is at the wallow of Honey Island in the Louisiana swamps. Silent Strike makes a deal with a wind spirit to deliever a message to a Corax at the FL office to deliver a message to Amelia’s father that she was found and safe.

Wings of Swift Glory showed up to help cleanse what taint was left on the servants. At this time they decide to remove the collar from the frenzying servant who shifts to Crinos shortly before she is falling touched again then falls asleep. She stays in what they discover to be her breed form [yey for metis]. Mel “Brews the Spirits” contacts the Black Furys to pick up Anne then offers to the rest that they can come to Section 7 in Minnesota.

The protector awakes and seems to be free from whatever hold the Madame had on her. She announces her self as Lures-To-The-Trap Stargazer Ahroun Claith ‘born of corruption’. She says she was taken many years ago. Mel offers to find her a way home but Lures refuses on the ground that she ‘has betrayed’ too many people to be welcomed back.

The Corax from the FL office shows up to the group to let them know that Amelia’s father was on his way. Oni Marked suggests that the rest of the group leaves but Silent Strike refuses. Mel “Brews the Spirits” goes with Wings of Swift Glory back to the FL Office with all the servants minus Amelia.

Silent Strike and Oni Marked notices a large amount of alligators coming towards them at a quick speed. Oni and Silent suggest to Amelia that they might have to sidestep if things go badly. Only one of the alligators comes out of the water shifting to a human form. Oni, thinking quickly, greets the Mokolé with a greeting he learned from the Japan office of Section 7. The man reveals himself to be the father and comments to Oni when he introduces himself that Mokolé ‘don’t have metis’ and calls Silent and Oni ‘Egg Crushers’. Silent asked the father if he knew what Amelia’s mother had been. He admits reluctantly that he had with a few hisses from the group behind him. Oni says that Amelia is like her mother. The father sighs and says he can’t take her home. Silent offers to take care of his daughter which he response ‘you will be remembered’ and he leaves.

Oni, Silent Strike, and Amelia join the rest of the pack back at the Minnesota Section 7 office.
