Chapter 48(2013-01-25)

[08:34:37 PM] Jan Stanek: Hello
[08:34:52 PM] Jan Stanek: well, blood magic galore
[08:37:32 PM] majinotaku83: blood!
[08:37:33 PM] majinotaku83: D
[08:38:03 PM] Ruth Dray: for the blood god
[08:38:20 PM] majinotaku83: No! waste of perfectly good blood!
[08:39:40 PM] Jan Stanek: in this case Divinatory magic used to determine that the god Upuat, also known as Wepwawet, Opener of the ways was somehow bound to the city in preparation of making it (or at least part) a city of the dead.
[08:40:33 PM] majinotaku83: Adn it is up to the forces of good!…i mean, us bloodsucking parasites to stop him!
[08:41:00 PM] Jan Stanek: ‘’Our city! Bad cultists! To the blood bags with you!" :D
[08:45:02 PM] majinotaku83: ooc: everyone good to go?
[08:45:15 PM] lomas_ip: All here
[08:45:16 PM] Joseph Arnaud: Sorry just filling in my Mummy the curse Kickstarter survey :) mine should arrive march :D
[08:45:20 PM] Joseph Arnaud: Now done
[08:46:04 PM] Jan Stanek: ah, my own copy should be in my inbox then
[08:48:46 PM] Joseph Arnaud: So you have done the divination, you know that Upuat is anchored and is drawing closer, his presence disrupting the cities geomancy, well not so much disrupting as reshaping.
[08:50:57 PM] majinotaku83: At least Eva’s mad ramblings which equates to that.
[08:53:16 PM] Joseph Arnaud: You know there are Ghosts in little cairo district that spread disease
[08:53:52 PM] Joseph Arnaud: That forces are imbuing previouly ‘mudane’ eygptian relics ( such as mummys) with life and power
[08:54:26 PM] Joseph Arnaud: that the ‘Devourer’ an eygptian beast of legend is alive well and occasional eating members of VII down at the docks
[08:55:33 PM] majinotaku83: “…chicago trouble be in…” Eva states, after the group realise all this.
[08:56:41 PM] lomas_ip: Tom looks thoughtfully, you can say that again my dear, but what are we gonna do about it. And what do the vii have to do with it
[08:57:39 PM] Jan Stanek: “I have my suspiscions that VII are just suffering from a bad case of mis-timing. After all they don’t seem to be synergising with the current chaos particularly well.”
[08:58:36 PM] lomas_ip: True but do they know something we don’t, and have upset the devourer
[08:59:35 PM] majinotaku83: Eva nods her head in agreement, before frowning “…The operner of ways…trapped…” she shakes her head “…latched…attached…an item of attraction…destroy the focus of contact…”
[09:00:12 PM] lomas_ip: Tom turns to eva, the urn?
[09:01:50 PM] majinotaku83: Eva shrugs “…that which is most likely the focal point may not be…” she said “…the visions may guide” she gestures to her eyes, still encircled by now semi dry blood.
[09:02:16 PM] Joseph Arnaud: seji make an occult roll
[09:04:56 PM] majinotaku83: Eva makes 2 successes
[09:08:13 PM] majinotaku83: Eva gets a far off look for a moment, then shakes her head “…no…the old ties…the old urn…weak…new anchors…new architect…”
[09:09:44 PM] lomas_ip: Some one trying to finish roots work, we need to know who? Laural, do you remember that old man we met chasing the stolen car, do you think he knows more?
[09:13:59 PM] Jan Stanek: Laurel tilts her head, letting her hair fall down like a curtain. “The urn created enough unrest for something ‘weak’.”
[09:16:18 PM] Jan Stanek: “The leylines have obviously been re-arranged with recent construction. The chinaman may be able to tell us something, as may my contact.”
[09:17:27 PM] lomas_ip: I think the first thing we need to know is this architect a kine or something else?
[09:20:17 PM] Jan Stanek: “Without knowing which of the recent constructions had the effect on the leylines we would struggle to find the relevant architect.”
[09:22:33 PM] majinotaku83: Eva looks thoughtful at that “…the man of china may uncover knowledge? The start is the est way to begin”
[09:22:35 PM] lomas_ip: Then let’s try to narrow it down, eva if we find a site could you use your blood magic to know if it linked to all this?
[09:23:39 PM] Jan Stanek: Laurel absent-mindedly flips her hat a few times, her dark eyes tracking its flight. “I think our occult contacts and Eva if she has the sight may be able to help us with pinning down which changes were critical. That means a list of recent construction and the dates of work done.”
[09:24:10 PM] Jan Stanek: “Probably town hall for the latter.”
[09:28:56 PM] lomas_ip: If we can come up with possable sites I could find out about who obtained the permits, tom pulls the map out, so where do we start looking
[09:31:24 PM] Jan Stanek: *chuckle
“Town-planning it is. Nasty little kine that they are.”
[09:32:29 PM] lomas_ip: Polletitions may be small and petty, but some one needs to do it, and they are uniquely suited for it
[09:34:04 PM] majinotaku83: “Small petty minds are in the highest seats…the ratspiders spin their webs and feast…” Eva notes, walking over to see what is going on.
[09:35:42 PM] lomas_ip: Ooc I know we marked sites that we had already been drawn too, as well as the locations of roots buildings, did we marked the known paths of the ley lines?
[09:36:12 PM] Joseph Arnaud: ooc Laural had some information
[09:37:02 PM] lomas_ip: Tom looks at the map, is there anything else we need to add to this
[09:37:36 PM] Joseph Arnaud: you could certainly use the locations of the root properties as the basis for your request to the Carthians
[09:37:55 PM] lomas_ip: Wrong window joe
[09:38:25 PM] lomas_ip: No one here knows I am a carthian
[09:39:57 PM] majinotaku83: ooc: and we still dont :D
[09:41:25 PM] lomas_ip: Tom looks upbat the clock, I’ll leave you too it I need to do my rounds
[09:41:46 PM] Jan Stanek: Laurel tips her hat.
[09:42:59 PM] Jan Stanek: “I shall try to find out more about recent works in the city.”
[09:43:02 PM | Edited 09:43:07 PM] majinotaku83: Eva gives the good doctor a wave of wit hher hand an wanders over next to laurel
[09:44:59 PM] lomas_ip: You are welcome to stay I should not be long, tom says as he leaves his office
[09:46:13 PM] majinotaku83: “Does the shadow intend to search personally? or will the china man be the instrument of knowledge obtained?” Eva asked, taking a seat
[09:47:34 PM] Jan Stanek: Laurel rolls 9 dice to Wits+Investigation 6,9,8,8,7, 9,7,3,8 (5 successes)
[09:47:58 PM] Jan Stanek: oops
[09:47:58 PM] Ruth Dray: once Tom leaves Carrie looks at the History on his internet browser then checks recycle bin and starts being generallly nosy looking at his files
[09:48:01 PM] Jan Stanek: wrong window :D
[09:49:22 PM] majinotaku83: Eva sits there, humming happily as she idly sucks at the now pretty much empty blood pack, seemingly with other tings in mind.
[09:55:02 PM] Jan Stanek: Laurel pulls out her phone and starts playing with it. She has the backlight down so that it barely gives off any light.
[09:56:12 PM] lomas_ip: Ooc joe let me know when you think I would return my rounds will take about half hour
[09:56:26 PM] Joseph Arnaud: well there all reading or thinking
[09:56:34 PM] Joseph Arnaud: so there is no reason not to call it now
[10:01:50 PM] Jan Stanek: Laurel is busy with her phone for a bit then looks up, maybe ten minutes later. A small smile on her lips. “I guess we’ll have to go to the source and talk with those who did the work. How very Marxist.”
[10:03:07 PM] majinotaku83: Eva was staring up at the ceiling, letting her thoughts run wild…her glaxed look matches that of any drug addict or bored school student. “…”
[10:04:25 PM] Jan Stanek: ‘’OOC – I’ve seen a lot of bored school students lately :D"
[10:06:52 PM | Edited 10:09:23 PM] Ruth Dray: ooc will carrie see the e mail from my friend?
[10:07:03 PM] majinotaku83: ooc: i figured you would appreciate the expression :P
[10:07:28 PM] Joseph Arnaud: yes
[10:09:11 PM] Ruth Dray: while carrie is looking through toms computer a new e mail comes through. she has noticed that the inbox is unusually empty as if he saved important e mails elsewhere, this new e mail is from (joe please supply name and content)
[10:09:41 PM] Ruth Dray: sorry that was me ian i started typing on wrong comp
[10:10:00 PM] Joseph Arnaud: I assumed it was :D
[10:10:47 PM] Joseph Arnaud: Donttreadonme1777@googlemail.com
[10:11:00 PM] Joseph Arnaud: whoops thinks its real :D
[10:11:09 PM] Joseph Arnaud: T.
[10:12:12 PM] Joseph Arnaud: Steer clear of Pig trouble, things are looking like there going to paint the scenery our favourte colour
[10:12:14 PM] Joseph Arnaud: S
[10:13:52 PM] Ruth Dray: carrie forwards email to herself deletes evidence of sent mail and then changes email back to unread
[10:16:56 PM] Ruth Dray: she then opens up a game of solitaire
[10:17:24 PM] majinotaku83: Eva looks up, both at Laurels words and the way Carrie seems to have finished with her computer activities “…class dismissed?” she asks in a sleepy tone of voice before shaking her head “…knowledge has been aquired?”
[10:23:09 PM] Ruth Dray: Carrie then changes Toms settings so that it does not automatically delete content when closes internet explorer and then looks on internet for a picture of scantily clad female vampire and changes the background picture to it
[10:23:36 PM] Jan Stanek: “I’ve thought of somebody who could help us learn what we need to learn, but questionning them is more in Tom’s field.”
[10:25:42 PM] Joseph Arnaud: [10:12 PM] Joseph Arnaud:

<<< would be an opposed computer roll
to cover her tracks
wits + comp both roll :D
[10:26:17 PM] majinotaku83: Eva cocks her head tothe side “…the secrets of the crafft of corpus?” the girl asks, a smile on her face.
[10:34:32 PM] Joseph Arnaud: right I will take the silence to mean people are tired
[10:34:38 PM] Joseph Arnaud: …
[10:34:39 PM] Joseph Arnaud: ?
[10:34:43 PM] Joseph Arnaud: time to call it a night
[10:34:44 PM] Joseph Arnaud: ?
[10:35:04 PM] majinotaku83: ooc: I was waiting to see what was going on…
[10:35:45 PM] Jan Stanek: ‘’OOC: drat playing quiet, predatory types can be awkward :D
[10:36:23 PM] Jan Stanek: Still it is late. How are you Ian?
[10:36:54 PM] lomas_ip: Not too bad at the miniute
[10:41:22 PM] Jan Stanek: ’Upon Tom’s return Laurel will look at him. “Research suggests that the works at the carpark & office block may be the last stone in the architectural net that has been woven. The works foreman may be able to tell us if any ‘unofficial’ or additional construction was done before the tarmac was poured.”
[10:42:29 PM] Jan Stanek: “It’s likely he’s a day shift sort of fellow so we’ll need to identify him and then pay him a visit.”
[10:43:21 PM] lomas_ip: We should be getting a copy of the permits tomorrow of some demolition work that was carried out near one of roots buildings, the timing seems about right.
[10:47:32 PM] lomas_ip: So we have two solid locations next we need to check to see if these places are infact involved, tom looks at carrie, having fun?
[10:47:42 PM] Joseph Arnaud: GM brain approaching critical failure level, so the questions becomes do I caffinate?
[10:47:50 PM] Joseph Arnaud: because if I do, there goes sleep :)
[10:47:58 PM] Joseph Arnaud: so I need a sense from the rest of you
[10:48:10 PM] Jan Stanek: I’m expecting a call from my dad soon. So maybe not a good idea tonight
[10:48:24 PM] Jan Stanek: though this is fun :) we at least have some avenues to proceed
[10:48:36 PM] lomas_ip: I think here is a good place, next we need to go look at places anyway
[10:48:39 PM] Joseph Arnaud: yes, out of the office and back into the field :D
[10:48:45 PM] Joseph Arnaud: you have the pieces to go places now :D
[10:48:50 PM] Joseph Arnaud: Dangerouse places
[10:49:09 PM] Joseph Arnaud: (ninja)
[10:49:47 PM] majinotaku83: ooc: heh heh, we managed to progress and now have 2 options to investigate! quickly! to the blood sucking parasite-mobile!
[10:50:55 PM] Jan Stanek: ’OOC – and on that note… Okay taking call. See/speak to you soon (wave)
