[07:15:58 PM] Joseph Arnaud: you stole a set of papers from the office, you where gathering at the ‘cresent moon’ to discuss them.
[07:16:27 PM] Joseph Arnaud: So we shall open, after sunset, at your usual table at the Cresent Moon.
[07:16:34 PM] Joseph Arnaud: Laural is late.
[07:16:34 PM] majinotaku83: that’s it in a nutshell. We were discovering what the mysterious egyptian architect Root had in his history
[07:16:41 PM] Joseph Arnaud: you are gathered.
[07:17:16 PM] lomas_ip: Evening my dears.
[07:18:16 PM] majinotaku83: “The nights are long…” Eva says, pulling up a chair and taking out a paper cup, an amber liquid within, which she sets onthe table “…fortunes may be found this night”
[07:19:47 PM] lomas_ip: Let us hope my dear. Any idea when laural will be joining us?
[07:21:56 PM] majinotaku83: “The shadow comes and goes…with the darkest depths, may there be deeper darkness…the shadow comes when she pleases…though light will shine soon…” Eva spoke happily, taking a sip from her cup and adjusting her black glasses.
[07:23:29 PM] lomas_ip: Tom shakes his head. So what is our next step?
[07:26:19 PM] majinotaku83: (ooc: sorry for stalling…just trying to recall everything wedo know of the situation…)
[07:26:46 PM] Ruth Dray: (ooc-same here)
[07:27:42 PM] lomas_ip: Ooc last thing I remember was going to break into the office to get original plans for roots world fair
[07:27:55 PM] Joseph Arnaud: yes and those have been recovered
[07:28:18 PM] lomas_ip: But I don’t remember what they showed us
[07:28:45 PM] Joseph Arnaud: you hadent analysed them, you had only recovered them
[07:29:12 PM] Ruth Dray: 9who has them?)
[07:29:43 PM] Joseph Arnaud: Laural gave them to Eva before disappering on an ‘errand’
[07:30:03 PM] lomas_ip: Ok
[07:31:16 PM] lomas_ip: Tom turns to eva pulling out the city map that we have marked with the other known points. So my dear you are the expert here what does it all mean
[07:34:12 PM] lomas_ip: Ooc ruth just found an old thing where laural and eva went through it all
[07:35:04 PM] Joseph Arnaud: ( the city map, yes but not the world fair or building plans)
[07:35:26 PM] Ruth Dray: “[12/7/2012 8:49:36 PM] Jan Stanek: Laurel settles on the bed, seated at one end, her coat spread out like a fan around her. She crosses her legs and pulls the box of files over and starts sifting through the contents, handing some to Eva to study.
[12/7/2012 8:50:07 PM] Joseph Arnaud: There are sheafs of papers, architechural notes
[12/7/2012 8:50:16 PM] Joseph Arnaud: hieorglyphs scattered all over
[12/7/2012 8:51:58 PM] Jan Stanek: Start taking pictures, Laurel focuses on the hieroglyphs (pictures speak more to her than dry text :P)
[12/7/2012 8:52:36 PM] Joseph Arnaud: some of them appear to be notes for ‘set dressing’ for his ‘eygptian city’ theme for the world fair
[12/7/2012 8:54:18 PM] Joseph Arnaud: others are in the margines of notes concerning a varity of building and building designs
[12/7/2012 8:54:33 PM] Joseph Arnaud: motifs he repeated in variouse ways
[12/7/2012 8:54:39 PM] Joseph Arnaud: Int+ academic
[12/7/2012 8:54:45 PM] Joseph Arnaud: Int + occult
[12/7/2012 8:56:11 PM] saji: Eva starts going through the papers, keeping an eye out for something which could aid the group find somthing more coherant.
[12/7/2012 8:56:33 PM] saji: ood: sorry, i thought i had pressed enter, but had accidentally pressed shift+enter
[12/7/2012 8:57:19 PM] Jan Stanek: 0 successes on the Occult
[12/7/2012 8:57:26 PM] Jan Stanek: 3 successes on the Academics
[12/7/2012 8:58:54 PM] saji: 3 successes on the Occult
2 successes on the Academics
[12/7/2012 9:01:20 PM] Joseph Arnaud: There are patterns in the building design which are scaled up in his layout of the the’ eypgpt city exhibition, and sort of scaled up in the placement of the root buildings in chicago, thought the ‘real world’ pattern is incomplete
[12/7/2012 9:01:31 PM] Joseph Arnaud: thats from accademics
[12/7/2012 9:02:06 PM] Joseph Arnaud: well duh there is occult significance in the patterns
[12/7/2012 9:02:31 PM] Joseph Arnaud: they mirror the star patterns that align with the pyramids
[12/7/2012 9:04:18 PM] Joseph Arnaud: and seem to work to align the contruction with higher powers
[12/7/2012 9:04:54 PM] Jan Stanek: so pretty big scale
[12/7/2012 9:05:26 PM] Jan Stanek: which buildings do we need to go ‘Fight Club’ on? :D
[12/7/2012 9:06:06 PM] saji: same query, if there are any which stick out…
[12/7/2012 9:07:39 PM] Joseph Arnaud: ahh you need to translate the hieroglyphs
[12/7/2012 9:07:55 PM] Joseph Arnaud: as you have neither got the knoledge nor the dramatic success you need :D
[12/7/2012 9:08:35 PM] Jan Stanek: ’’to the Bat Cave!”
[07:36:45 PM] Joseph Arnaud: you went to get the ‘root documents’ to help you make sense of this
[07:36:56 PM] Joseph Arnaud: as the root building vist is dataded from december :D
[07:37:43 PM] lomas_ip: This uses american dates that is the seventh of december
[07:38:17 PM] Joseph Arnaud: ahh
[07:38:41 PM] Joseph Arnaud: correct the GM one more time and I will dock you a point of blood potency
[07:38:44 PM] Joseph Arnaud: :D
[07:38:52 PM] Ruth Dray: :P

[12/7/2012 9:08:35 PM] Jan Stanek: ‘’to the Bat Cave!"
[07:45:29 PM] lomas_ip: Can I try to find web site on hieroglyphs using tablet pc from my car?
[07:45:51 PM] majinotaku83: (ooc: its up on the archives now)
[07:47:35 PM] majinotaku83: Eva looked down a little unhappy at Dr Londons question “…The mists are still thick in the pages of architecture…better aids are required before the shell of ignorance is cracked by the tool of wisdom…”
[07:48:02 PM] Joseph Arnaud: unfortuantly there is no easy source for hierglyph translation on the internet
[07:48:40 PM] Joseph Arnaud: you need texts books
[07:48:46 PM] Joseph Arnaud: refrence sources
[07:48:53 PM] Joseph Arnaud: or some one who already reads it
[07:49:50 PM] lomas_ip: Tom looks at eva any chance you have panawis number
[07:49:56 PM] majinotaku83: “The forgotten Pharoh!” Eva exclaims softly “…the wandering queen of the nile…” she ponders.
[07:50:47 PM] majinotaku83: The vampirina takes out a small book which she flicks through…under the section w for ’Wandering queen of the niles’’ she has a phone number…
[07:51:45 PM] lomas_ip: Tom tries to ring the number
[07:54:09 PM] Joseph Arnaud: ring ring ring ring
[07:54:35 PM] lomas_ip: Where is the ringing coming from
[07:54:50 PM] Joseph Arnaud: your phone :D IE no answer
[07:55:29 PM] lomas_ip: Ah shame. Tom hangs up and stores number in his phone.
[07:56:03 PM] lomas_ip: It seems she is busy, do we know anyone else who could read this
[07:56:54 PM] Ruth Dray: “can i borrow your computer Tom”
[07:57:20 PM] lomas_ip: Tom hands it over absently still thinking
[07:58:52 PM | Edited 08:00:06 PM] Ruth Dray: Carrie types in “Egyptian heiroglyphs” under pictures
[07:59:01 PM] Joseph Arnaud: you cant type them in
[07:59:11 PM] Joseph Arnaud: there are some limited websites
[07:59:21 PM] Joseph Arnaud: but no set up for searching them by image
[07:59:40 PM] Ruth Dray: just want to compare them to image to try and see if they are egyptian ones
[08:00:12 PM] Joseph Arnaud: oh yes
[08:02:33 PM] Joseph Arnaud: there definitly eygptian
[08:04:41 PM] Ruth Dray: ooc- didnt we already find an expert on egyptian heiroglyphs, at the university, and did we scan in other images that eva wrote down previously and get him to translate??
[08:04:57 PM] Joseph Arnaud: not that I remember
[08:09:22 PM] majinotaku83: Eva ponders for a moment, before staring at the papers “…a glimps into the possibiltiies, may be an option” she entures, glancing around “…the platform is not ideal, but the service may provide the vitae…” she pondered outloud.
[08:11:15 PM] lomas_ip: Tom looks at eve, still obviously at a loss
[08:13:33 PM] majinotaku83: Eva calmly start to take out from her bag some rathe odd objects…a rather…reddish looking plate, a brownish red handkerchief and a rather sharp looking knife…one which you would expect more to use for gutting fish than eating with, still in its scabbard “…perhaps a call to the living servicemen would get vitae to power the ways of divination?” she asked the other two, looking happy and eager.
[08:15:27 PM] lomas_ip: Shall we head to my clinic its a bit public here for that sort of thing
[08:16:42 PM] majinotaku83: Eva looked over innocently where she had placed the plate infront of her with the napkin folded neatly into a triangle on her left with the knife placed ceremonially, still sheathed ontop of the plate “…a relocation to a stronghold of questionable hygine?”
[08:17:41 PM] lomas_ip: I think that would be best don’t you
[08:18:58 PM] majinotaku83: Eva nods her head an quickly replaces the items withinher bag, smiling at the other two “…a request of vitae would make the shadows part with greater ease…sight beyong sight requires little fog…”
[08:19:44 PM] Ruth Dray: Tom is your car outsied?
[08:20:25 PM] lomas_ip: Yes let’s move shall we
[08:21:08 PM] Ruth Dray: Carrie stands up and follows Tom outside looking over her shoulder to check Eva is following
[08:21:54 PM] majinotaku83: Eva is right behind Carrie…about a foot behind her, smiling in her creepy way, glasses slightly slanted giving her a dishevled look.
[08:23:25 PM] lomas_ip: When we reach the clinic the girl behind the desc leers at the two women obviously getting the wrong impression.
[08:23:43 PM] Ruth Dray: Carrie slips Toms Tablet Pc into her bag as she leaves
[08:23:46 PM] majinotaku83: Eva smiles back at her
[08:25:13 PM] lomas_ip: Once in toms office tom heads out for a blood pack ( I am now on -3 dice to next feeding rool)
[08:25:31 PM] lomas_ip: Here you go my dear I hope it helps
[08:29:45 PM] majinotaku83: Eva smiles at the good doctor and nods her head. Before long she has taken out the knife, plate and handkerchief, spread out on the table. She closes her eyes and opens her palm out using the daggar, letting the wound bleed into the plate as her mouth moves, yet no sounds come out…
[08:35:20 PM] majinotaku83: Eva stands there, allowing the blood to flow down her palm and drip into the bowl. at first, she is content to merely fill the plate, not too much, but enough so that the bottom is covered in the red liquid. As she does so, her mouth moves as she speaks words, bizzare words that Carrie has an inclination she should know of…
[08:36:52 PM] majinotaku83: The knife is now being used to stir the blood, slowly at first, but then getting faster and faster, the liquid within becoming a whirlpool, butnever spilling. The silent chanting increases in pace as the knife stirsthe blood. Suddenly, the knife comes out of the plate, blood the blade. Eva brings the knife to her face…
[08:38:24 PM] majinotaku83: and very calmly, traces aroundhereyes, leaving blood traces on her skin. Setting the knife down, she bends down, her cut palm covering the handkerchief as she lowered her face mere inches from the plates vitae…
[08:39:55 PM] majinotaku83: She stays hunched over…breathing in deeply, still muttering her incantations…
[08:45:43 PM] majinotaku83: Eva goes quiet for a few moments, before she leans backwards, her eyes open, yet only the whites visible…“…she…ka…Gau…She…Ka…Gau…She, Ka, Gau…She-Ka-Gau!” she chants
[08:47:43 PM] majinotaku83: “The opener of ways walks amongst us!” she cries out, imbetween chanting, which increases in speed of ‘she-ka-gau’. “…the opener of ways works at the unfinished design!”
[08:48:32 PM] lomas_ip: Root is still alive
[08:50:18 PM] majinotaku83: “The archetect…the designer…the dream of a modern city of the dead…the god of ways opening…” she cries out, as her voice starts to go hoarse “…She-ka-gau will become true…the Lake the Ka is bound has started…”
[08:51:58 PM] majinotaku83: Eva collapses to her knees
[08:53:01 PM] Ruth Dray: Carrie sits down at Toms desk gets out a pen and paper and writes down everything Eva said
[08:53:06 PM] lomas_ip: Tom rushes round the table to help her to a chair, tom looks at carrie any idea what she means
[08:54:59 PM] majinotaku83: As soon as Tom touches Eva, the vampire jumps, head rising and her eyes the normal state of confusion…only this time…ther is some purpose in her gaze “…the opener of ways! The opener of ways is trapped!” she says through a sore throat.
[08:55:54 PM] lomas_ip: Trapped, where’ how?
[08:58:13 PM] majinotaku83: Eva shook her head “…an anchor…” she said slowly “…the archetects machinations are coming to fruit…the city will become the Lake the Ka is Bound…Upuat walks amongsts us…” she rubbed her throat, feeling around for the blood pack the good doctor had given her.
[08:58:56 PM] lomas_ip: Any ideas carrie?
[09:00:16 PM] majinotaku83: Eva finds the pack eventually and greedily drinks up the life bringing drink, not spilling a drop as she does
[09:00:46 PM] Ruth Dray: im guessing someone is trying to finish the original designs so that the original purpose can work??
[09:01:32 PM] lomas_ip: But who, and to what purpose, who is this opener of ways?
[09:02:46 PM] majinotaku83: Eva gulped the last of the blood down and sighed with relief before shrugging “…the architect wished to create a city of the dead…” she spoke in a more normal voice “…She-Ka-Gau…” she reasoned “…the opener of ways…Upuat…”
[09:03:31 PM] Ruth Dray: Carrie type Upuat into Toms computer
[09:04:51 PM] Joseph Arnaud: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wepwawet
[09:06:51 PM] Jan Stanek: A soft knock sounds from the office door
[09:07:22 PM] lomas_ip: Tom looks around before calling out who is it
[09:07:46 PM] Ruth Dray: ah Upuat appears to be one who will open the way a scout for the army, he is pictured as a wolf
[09:09:02 PM] Jan Stanek: A soft thud and then a click precede the door opening. Laurel pops her head through and says “Me”
[09:09:43 PM] majinotaku83: “Upuat…the opener of ways…” she says, before perking up at the sound of Laurels voice “The shadow arrives!” she spoke ith glee, her teeth amix of white and red from her recent meal, her eyes still smered with blood.
[09:10:24 PM] Jan Stanek: Raising one thin eyebrow Laurel looks at Eve, “Ah, the bride of Dracula look.”
[09:10:38 PM] lomas_ip: Evening my dear tom says to laural,
[09:10:48 PM] Ruth Dray: he is also seen to open the way for the spirits of the dead and guides the deceased into the netherworld
[09:11:42 PM] Jan Stanek: Laurel half opens the door and slips in sideways, ubiqutous long coat wrapped around her. Closing the door behind her… “Any luck with the classical comic script?”
[09:12:24 PM] majinotaku83: Eva nods her head vigorously "…the opener of ways will finish teh architectswork…to make the city into She-Ka-Gau, By the Lake the Ka is Bound…the city of the dead…
[09:12:25 PM] majinotaku83: "
[09:12:39 PM] Jan Stanek: “Oh, old Wepwawet. He’s been knocking around town for a bit. Or at least prophecies of him have.”
[09:13:25 PM] lomas_ip: You have heard of him them
[09:14:04 PM] majinotaku83: “The Opener of ways is trapped…anchored…” Eva says “…the anchor disrupted…” she cups her hand stogether before spreading them wide and making a whooshing sound “…the dead will be to rest…”
[09:15:22 PM] Jan Stanek: “Oh, some possessed nut jobs tried to stake me for being a threat to his return. Or some such nonsense.”
[09:16:23 PM] lomas_ip: When was this?
[09:18:00 PM] Jan Stanek: “Five-six weeks.”
[09:18:38 PM] Ruth Dray: what were you doing at the time?
[09:18:58 PM] lomas_ip: Why did you not tell us
[09:19:44 PM] Jan Stanek: Tilting her head sidewise a little in consideration “I was passing near that funeral parlour we checked out.”
[09:20:41 PM] Ruth Dray: what funeral parlour?
[09:20:55 PM] majinotaku83: “Anchor of the opener of ways may be at the parlour of the dead” Eva said, a flash of excitment in her eyes “…free Upuat…free chicago”
[09:23:50 PM | Edited 09:23:58 PM] Jan Stanek: “Well there you go, the creepy Seer…” she grins towards Eva “…has spoken. Intriguing, the parlour is where we learned about the urn.”
[09:24:47 PM] lomas_ip: This all seems to be going in circles
[09:25:25 PM] majinotaku83: Eva smiles, like a student being rewarded by a teacher for being clever “…circles and mirrors…smoke and saphires…SHe-Ka-gau would be beautiful to see…” she spoke wistfully.
[09:27:43 PM] lomas_ip: Ooc ruth has wor in morning so we will have to go soon
[09:28:19 PM] Joseph Arnaud: Ok 2exp each :D
[09:28:32 PM] lomas_ip: Cheers
