Night 2: The meeting

Post by Seratone on Mon Feb 21, 2011 8:27 pm

Night 2: The coterie wakes up about an hour after the sun had gone down. Since it was winter, this meant that the kindred could wake up a little earlier. It was 7:00 PM. The coterie is scheduled to meet with Damian at 11:00 PM..

[12:37:15 21/02/11] Seratone : The first thing you notice is the repugnant smell of the corpse of the homeless man Justin had drained the night before. The body had decayed a bit and was making quite a stench now. Justin looks at the corpse and frowns. “You were right Rachel. I shouldn’t have done this.” He shakes his head a bit, disappointed at himself for his lack of restraint in controlling the thirst..

[12:37:43 21/02/11] Seratone : Rachel notices a message on her phone. Her retainers had arrived in the city and checked into a motel. They were awaiting her next order..

[12:37:57 21/02/11] Seratone : (anne told us to go ahead she'll be here soon).

[12:38:35 21/02/11] @ Dean : "I told you to clean that up," Amelita spat, glaring daggers at Justin..

[12:41:32 21/02/11] Seratone : Justin checks his watch. "I'll deal with it now." He mutters back coldly. The man bends down and starts to tear away some of the decayed carpenting ont he basement, then he starts rolling the corpse up into the carpet..

[12:44:47 21/02/11] Seratone : "We've got about four hours before the meeting. If you need to do anything I'd suggest doing it now. I don't expect Damian to be serving refreshments.".

[12:45:14 21/02/11] Seratone : The man sounded cold and pompous.

[12:45:27 21/02/11] @ Dean : Amelita muttered curses as she pulled on a pair of jeans. "I've got some things to do. We need to move my Altar to the south-west wall.".

[12:48:20 21/02/11] Seratone : Justin hesitates for a moment before answering. "Alright then." He puts the corpse down for a moment to help Amelita move the alter. "I want to know though. How does this alter of yours help us?".

[12:50:16 21/02/11] @ Dean : Amelita looks at Justin with an air of condescension hard to pull off when you're that short. "The Altar helps my rituals. Rituals like keeping an eye on this place. Things like that. You think it's just for show?".

[12:55:52 21/02/11] Seratone : "The thought had crossed my mind." Justin answers dryly as he finishes moving the altar. He picks up the body again. "I'm going to drop this off in the river. I'll leave you to your own devices. Just be ready for the meeting. First impressions matter.".

[13:01:27 21/02/11] @ Dean : "Eh-heh..." Amelita tittered sarcastically. "If only you'd remembered that with the bum last night.".

[13:05:03 21/02/11] Seratone : "Other things were on my mind." Justin answers in a cool way. "I'll see you in a few hours." The vampire dons his street clothes and departs with the corpse in tow..

[13:05:32 21/02/11] Seratone : (You've got some time to burn. So if you want to make a hunt roll, do a ritual, whatever. Now is the time to do it)..

[13:05:48 21/02/11] Seratone : (plus we're still waiting for anne).

[13:08:04 21/02/11] @ Dean : Amelita begins to go through her clothes and holds outfits against herself. Getting ready for stuff was a bitch with no reflection whatsoever. Finally she decides on a fairly tasteful dark dress and understated shoes. She teases her weave and asks Rachel to leave so that she can prepare for a ritual, stressing that it's something she'd really rather nobody else saw..

[13:09:48 21/02/11] @ Dean : ( http://sheetgen.dalines.net/wiki/WikiDiceRoller?hash=06be5879 1 sux).

[13:10:30 21/02/11] Seratone : (alright so you are leaving a drop of blood that will be a defacto camera for the haven?).

[13:13:30 21/02/11] @ Dean : (the alley entrance, bloodwitness is flexible, like you can paint a line and see from any point along it).

[13:14:14 21/02/11] Seratone : (oh right alright good one).

[13:14:27 21/02/11] Seratone : (how long does it last?).

[13:14:48 21/02/11] @ Dean : (one night per vitae expended, one in this case).

[13:15:26 21/02/11] Seratone : (alright cool).

[13:15:38 21/02/11] Seratone : (we should really wait for Anne before continuing).

[13:15:50 21/02/11] @ Dean : (also a hunt roll).

[13:16:00 21/02/11] @ Dean : (do striking looks add a bonus there?).

[13:17:12 21/02/11] Seratone : (i don't think the rules say anything, but I think that deserves a +1 bonus). There are no modifiers for the slums..

[13:18:13 21/02/11] @ Dean : (cool, so wits+subterfuge? hunt rolls are fleible).

[13:18:48 21/02/11] Seratone : (that works for me go ahead and roll).

[13:20:09 21/02/11] @ Dean : (1 sux).

[13:21:08 21/02/11] Seratone : (I'll narrate).

[13:22:53 21/02/11] Seratone : Amelita finds a corner on the street wher a few prostitutes are plying their trade. It isn't long before an older man stops by to pick her up. The man proves to be a an easy meal, and fortunately was not on drugs..

[13:25:14 21/02/11] @ Dean : Amelita rubs her stomach, satisfied and heads back to the crib to get ready for the meet..

Rachel clears out when Amelita requests, beginning to walk around the block. She shrugs off her backpack and reaches into its front pocket, withdrawing her cell phone. As she fiddles with the button to call her retainers, she lets her peripheral vision take in the area around them, alert for any one paying her any undue attention.

She places a call to her retainers.
"Its me," She declares. "I need you to watch this building during the morning hours tomorrow." She gives the address of 'safe house' they had been given. Always good to know if it still stood.

"For now, start checking out the area around that address. Look for people. Stick together and act natural- go out for dinner, look for entertainment. Meet me at your motel around midnight - I may arrive closer to 1, I have a meeting."

She ends the call and checks her watch. Four hours to get something to eat and find a decent clothing shop..

Rachel's retainers answer in the affirmative then hang up.

Walking around the abandoned derelict neighborhood, Rachel scopes out a crack house full of addicts that would be easy prey She also notices some prostitutes on a nearby corner that are plying their trade.

Rachel decides to wait out on the corner...the second vampire of the same night to do so.

The woman get's some nasty looks from the local girls, obviously not too happy about the new competition, but they don't say anything for now.

It isn't long before Rachel is picked up by an older looking man. The man drives to a nearby secluded alley, and ends up making for an easy meal. Fortunately, he didn't drive too far, and Rachel is able to walk back to the haven without incident.

Rachel is met by Justin and Amelita.

"Is everyone in good shape?' Justin asks the two other vampires. He sighs as he looks around. "The vessels here must be terrible. Ugh, the sooner we can move the better I say."

When everyone has changed into their nice clothes, the coterie piles into Justin's car and departs for the address Damian's ghoul mentioned. The address is on the other side of town, the nice part.

Justin drives slow because it had started sleeting out and the roads were slick. Along the way you see a few car accidents from people that wiped out.

About half way to the destination, Rachel receives a text message on her cellphone.

MEETING IS A TRAP. IF U WANT TO LIVE, GO TO HOLIDAY INN DOWNTOWN, ROOM 104.

"What the hell?" Rachel frowns at her phone, reading the message to the others.

"For all we know, the Holiday Inn is a trap..."

Justin immediately pulls the car over to the side of the road when he hears the message and shuts off his headlights.

He checks his watch. They were running ahead of schedule, and had a little more than an hour before the 11:00 PM meeting.

Justin checks his rear view mirror. An emergency snow plow drives by, orange lights flashing but nothing else out of the ordinary.

"I don't like this one bit. Someone wants us to make a move and screw up but I don't feel like playing." He comments, wracking his head.

"I say we call off the meeting with Damian, go back to the haven, and fortify the place as best we can."

__________

Jon's Character:

-You were recently "volunteered" by the ruling government of Cincinatti to re-settle the neighboring city of Dayton Ohio. You were told to contact a Justin or Rachel and were given their contact information. You were also told to contact Prince Damian (ruler of Dayton and given contact information for his ghoul, Chelsea Spangler) . On night 2 you arrive in Dayton, making the 40 minute drive safey. What is your next action?

"We call off the meeting, he could send hounds after us for being disobedient little pricks." Rachel replies steadily. "We don't have to over think this - if it feels unsafe, lets be honest. Look outside. We could claim we skid off the road and by the time we were set to rights, we'd missed the meeting. We'd still be in hot water, but he'd have no real way to tell if we're lying until he sets eyes on us."


She sends a quick message to her retainer. [Run a google maps search on [Address of Meeting site]. Where is it?]

A few minutes later, one of the retainers calls back.

"Yeah, ummm. It looks like the second address is a house in Oakwood. The first address is also a house in Oakwood. The two locations are only about two blocks apart from eachother. I hope that is helpful."

Justin adjusts his tie nervously, not quite reassured by Rachel's reasoning.

He looks over at Amelita.

"Do you have an opinion on this?"

[Anyone can go ahead and make a social roll to get Justin on board with their position. If both characters try it, then it is whoever gets the most successes]

Amelita had been listening - and simmering - her arms folded . Her look was kind of... avante-garde, dripping with costume jewellery, with her make-up deliberately lurid, glistening and dark. There was the lacy burlesque frock she wore over a tight pair of low-riders, her weave teased into glossed, snaking waves with coiled around little stones.

"Way I see it, we're of the leash here. We'd be some bitches not to look for a better offer." She thinks for a second.

"You wanna know what I think? We wanna play both sides. We can stall the meeting and see what's up. Maybe split up, make an excuse for the other half and weigh up options after that."

Justin nods his head. The strange woman was making some valid points, making his own suggestions look rather silly by comparison.

He looks at Amelita. "You make some good points Amelita."

He pauses to think for a moment.

"Amelita, we could use you to scout out the holiday inn, and see if its safe. You can use the blood to stay in the shadows right?"

He checks his watch then looks to Rachel.

"I think we have enough time to check out the Holiday Inn, and meet up with Damian. Even if we are a little late, it might be worth checking this out."

Rachel shrugs. "Better late than ash." She replies dryly, hoping it covered the anxiety rumbling in her still rib cage.

"So our plan is Justin and I check out Holiday Inn with Amelita covering us from the shadows? Works for me. I'll have the meat bags keep an eye on the President's spot ."

She opened the text pad of her cell phone, asking one of her retainers to check out the site where they were to meet the President's Ghoul and to call if anything looked suspicious. She asked the other to check out the 'safe house' that was near the site of the meeting.

Justin nods his head to Rachel as he pulls the car back on to the icy roads.

“Agreed.”

Downtown Dayton looked like a lot of built up urban environments. Everything around you from the buildings to the sidewalks is solid concrete while looming office buildings tower above you. Something that tends to stand out about this area is the lack of color and vibrancy. Many of the shops you see appear to be closed and abandoned buildings are everywhere. There is hardly any traffic on the roads except for the occasional snow plow and there are no pedestrians in sight. You even notice a few side streets that are completely unlit extending a long shadow on the roads still fortunate enough to have light.

Justin slides the car into a parking spot on a street about a block away from the hotel, losing control of the vehicle as it slides on the ice for less than a panicked second as he does so.

“Alright, let’s go see what this trap is all about.” He says with a certain amount of dark sarcasm in his voice.
The coterie makes it to the hotel without incident, encountering nothing unusual save the desolate cold concrete sidewalk.
Once you reach the reception area, the only person you see is the man working the front desk. He is a young man with curly black hair and a tan complexion. The man glances at you casually but then goes back to looking at the computer in front of him.

Before taking his first steps into Dayton, relatively young Daeva Marcus Altemeier couldn't have told anyone what his true purpose in life (or unlife) had been. "Drink, play bass and fuck women," would have been his likely answer, but perhaps that was about to change? He had been volunteered to travel to Dayton. He didn't volunteer himself for anything, and sure as hell didn't like being volunteered by someone else.

Fuck this, he thought, I should just turn around and get the hell out of here while I still have the motivation.

He glanced around, sweeping his left hand through his dyed black hair, the one red shock near the front standing out beneath the streetlamps. People glanced at him as they passed; he paid them no mind. What the hell did they matter?Against his better judgment, Marcus extracted his phone from his inner jacket pocket, tapped a few times on the screen, and held it to his ear. He had dialed the number given for Rachel.

He had always had better luck dealing with chicks.

"Great digs. We're coming up in the world." Rachel stated dryly, glancing around the hotel. She specifically looked for any cameras or security, guards or number pads about.
Within the Hotel, Rachel instantly pressed her finger to the side of her phone, silencing the shrill ring. She brings it out, studying the display.

"Don't know the number." She muses for a minute, before opening the phone and placing it to her ear.
"Rachel speaking."

"Marc. I'm assuming that you're with the other members of the band?"

When in doubt, go with music terminology!

"Where the fuck are you people? Our manager must have a shitty sense of humor, dropping me off in this hellhole with no directions and a couple of phone numbers."

He glanced around again as he started to walk, not necessarily headed anywhere, but simply discontent with standing in one place like a jackass.

"Oh, good. You didn't flake out. I was starting to think you were stoned in the back of someone's van."
Rachel replied, her tone cool; but her mind was racing. Things were coming together, finally. The coterie was coming together.
"We're at the hotel. You should come down, we really need to go over the set. Here's the address." She rattled off the address of the hotel that they were in.

As she did so, she wondered about Amelita. She had the urge that she should keep her in the loop. It would suck if she waylaid their new coterie mate. Where was she, anyway?

Rachel stopped in the lobby, glancing back the way they had come.

"Fuckin' A, babe," he replied as he tapped the icon to end the call, turning on his heel and making his way back toward his ride, a fairly late-model dark blue Hyundai Tiburon (an eBay find for the ages, that one).

Climbing behind the wheel, he tapped the address of the hotel into his GPS (that had tried to kill him in the past, so perhaps that one wasn't the bargain he thought he'd gotten), cranked the engine, and set off toward his destination. He was sure he wasn't going to like these people.

But then again, they had been volunteered as well; maybe they were just as pissed off as he was. He shrugged his shoulders and turned his stereo up a little.

I guess I'll find out.

Amelita was toying absently with the stones in her weave. She taps a message into her phone, despite the fact that the people she's communicating with are across the lobby. Justin's phone vibrates. Should he look up he'll see a young, diminutive witch staring daggers at him.

'No jeffe i cnt use the blud to do that. why wld u evn assume that??? why r u in the lobby stupid????? ur fucking this. stop fucking this. only text me, i dnt talk on phones.'

As Marc hangs up, Rachel glances over to Justin as his phone vibrates. Lifting her gaze - she spots Amelita. Her expression leaves an impression.

She began to slowly move towards the lobby door, texting on her phone to Amelita.

That was our last coterie mate, Rachel began -Marc. He's heading down to meet us now. I think your plan makes more sense, I'm going to head out to the car and 'get the luggage'. I'll look for the new guy. You want to handle lobby?
With a thumb press, she sent the text.

A few moments later (or perhaps several, if the demon-GPS gets its way), the blue Tiburon comes barreling around a corner and parks quite ungracefully in one of the spots farthest from the hotel. The engine stops, the door flies open, and out steps probably the last sort of person any of the other coterie-mates expected to see.

Dressed like something out of a music video, in loose-fitting black leather pants and a sleeveless black tee-shirt beneath a long black coat with various slogan and music patches all over it, Marcus completely ignored the stares he was getting from anyone walking by. His eyes, heavy and made heavier by the liberal amounts of black eyeliner he was wearing, sparkled in the darkness, like those of a predator getting ready to pounce.

"Hey, motherfuckers, anyone lookin' for their bass player? Here he fuckin' is!"

His voice is loud and obnoxious, and just to call even more attention to himself, Marcus raises both hands in the air like he's waiting for an answer from God.

If no one in the parking lot responds, Marcus sets off toward the lobby, fully intent on doing the exact same thing inside.

Amelita does a double-take when she sees the guy, she begins to wonder what the fuck he came dressed as before she feels her consciousness submerged under the Beast's churning aggression. Suddenly her world happens in flashes of clarity, tinted by a crimson film. She stalks towards Marc, making a fist.

Rachel exited the lobby, walking towards the car that they had arrived in. She suddenly stopped, mid -stride, glanicing upwards fearfully. She grimanced, her lips drawing back in a grim, teeth flashing grin. She took three quick steps forward, before realizing that there was a new car- and that frightening person was besides her exit route. She froze, caught without a rabbit hole..

[14:08:06 28/02/11] @ Seryna : Rachel's mind slowly uses its intellect, boiling down to the need to get away. She bolts from the hotel, hoping to race past this terrifying newcomer. Her eyes dart about, panicked as she streaks towards the newcomer..

[14:08:08 28/02/11] @ Dean : [cool, Amelita's jumping Marc in a grapple].

[14:08:15 28/02/11] @ Seryna : [uses =loses].

[14:09:42 28/02/11] @ Dean : [ok, 4 suxx on grapple].

[14:11:36 28/02/11] Static : [Too late to attempt a dodge? >.>].

[14:12:09 28/02/11] @ Dean : [don't you need to beat the init to dodge?].

[14:12:52 28/02/11] Static : [I dunno. I said I'm rusty, don't judge me! *whines* Eh, I'll try and break it, what's her strength?].

[14:13:17 28/02/11] @ Dean : (3).

[14:13:43 28/02/11] @ Dean : Amelita breaks into a run as she clears the lobby threshold, enslaved by the Beast's jealousy and wounded pride. She leaps onto Marc, locking her legs around his waist and locking her hands onto his upper arms..

[14:14:02 28/02/11] @ Seryna : [The mekhet is stronger than the Daeva! LMAO].

[14:14:49 28/02/11] Static : [He's a lover, not a fighter. Chance roll!].

[14:14:58 28/02/11] @ Seryna : [we are going to be an awesome coterie. if we dont kill each other].

[14:15:08 28/02/11] @ Dean : [we should survive this].

[14:15:30 28/02/11] @ Dean : [but it's cool since this is an excellent example of why it's so difficult for vamps to move from city to city].

[14:15:36 28/02/11] @ Seryna : [Im writing the jokes to how the Daeva gets his ass kicked by the Mekhet girl].

[14:16:09 28/02/11] @ Dean : [amelita's vice is gluttony... so she's probably going to attempt to feed here].

[14:16:13 28/02/11] @ Seryna : [we can eat the clerk and hide in the empty room. he has the system up for us ].

[14:17:58 28/02/11] @ Dean : [from marc, that is].

[14:18:14 28/02/11] @ Dean : [ok, so what's marc's strength?].

[14:18:15 28/02/11] @ Seryna : [whisper go chnace die].

[14:19:15 28/02/11] Static : Marcus levels his gaze just in time to see something out of a horror movie streaking at him across the parking lot. Caught completely by surprise and unable to muster the agility to dodge, he struggles hopelessly aganst the vicelike grip (and mildly sexy positioning) of the vampire who is suddenly on the attack. He is only vaguely aware of the other vampire fleeing the scene as he finds that his struggle is in vain. [Str 2].

[14:20:52 28/02/11] Seratone : .

[14:21:13 28/02/11] @ Dean : (1 sux on feed).

[14:21:25 28/02/11] Seratone : (takes a minute to read up).

[14:22:36 28/02/11] @ Dean : The stones in Amelita's weave whip againt Marc's face as the mekhet feel the Beast direct her jaws around his neck, like a whip. He feels the fortifying vitae within his system... lessen..

[14:22:52 28/02/11] @ Dean : (no damage, but -1 vitae for Marc).

[14:23:06 28/02/11] @ Dean : (ok, ser, shit got real).

[14:23:27 28/02/11] Seratone : ok give me the condensed version of what happened.

[14:23:30 28/02/11] @ Dean : (you might want to have Justin help get this crazy bitch off of the new guy).

[14:23:51 28/02/11] @ Dean : (we failed predators taint).

[14:23:51 28/02/11] @ Seryna : [we started off in the lobby. Marc called, Rachel directed him to the hotel.].

[14:24:13 28/02/11] @ Seryna : [But we, being new kids on the block, just got rocked by predators taint].

[14:24:44 28/02/11] @ Dean : [and now we're in the parking lot, grappling].

[14:24:57 28/02/11] Seratone : (ok just Rachel?).

[14:25:06 28/02/11] @ Seryna : Rachel ran.

[14:25:20 28/02/11] @ Dean : (no, amelita too).

[14:25:31 28/02/11] @ Seryna : Afterwards, we can check the text .

[14:25:32 28/02/11] Seratone : oh man.

[14:25:35 28/02/11] @ Dean : (and we even gave rachel the dice bonus for knowing marc was coming).

[14:25:49 28/02/11] @ Seryna : [that sucked].

[14:25:56 28/02/11] Seratone : so Justin can't dominate anyone out of frenzy right?.

[14:26:11 28/02/11] @ Seryna : [Marcs not frenzying. Perhaps he can scream for Justins help].

[14:26:26 28/02/11] Seratone : ok let's get back ic.

[14:26:54 28/02/11] @ Dean : (so basically, we need to resolve this and recover).

[14:27:16 28/02/11] @ Seryna : [its rachel - amelita marc, right?].

[14:28:08 28/02/11] @ Dean : (we were here).

[14:28:10 28/02/11] @ Dean : The stones in Amelita's weave whip againt Marc's face as the mekhet feel the Beast direct her jaws around his neck, like a whip. He feels the fortifying vitae within his system... lessen. [21:22:52] @ Dean : (no damage, but -1 vitae for Marc).

[14:28:28 28/02/11] Static : [My turn?].

[14:28:40 28/02/11] @ Dean : [yup].

[14:32:04 28/02/11] Static : [Holy crap, success.] Marcus' eyes open wider than ever before as he feels the crazy bitch start to drain his precious vitae. From somewhere inside his dead little heart, he summons enough strength to let out a hellacious, "Get the fuck off me, you crazy bitch!" Pushing Amelita off with all the strength he can muster, Marc turns on the spot and starts for the relative safety of his car. [1 success!].

[14:33:28 28/02/11] @ Seryna : Amelita's attack in Rachel's peripheral vision only steels her resolve to flee. She doesn't recognize Amelita now, she doesn't see a kinsmen in Marc's face. He was a stranger to her, now. She simply sprints, her long blonde hair swinging behind her. She knows nothing but a desire to get away from the fear..

[14:34:04 28/02/11] @ Dean : (oh, uh, you only succeed on a 10 with chance dies, I advise you use willpower to break out).

[14:34:46 28/02/11] Static : [damnit, the rust returns. rerolling!].

[14:35:16 28/02/11] @ Dean : (don't worry about it, I know what it's like to return to mechanics after a while away).

[14:35:21 28/02/11] @ Seryna : [we'll remember eventually. I miss my book].

[14:35:39 28/02/11] Seratone : Justin manages to resist the call of the beast when he walks outside to see the chaos unfolding. With a growl he grabs a hold of Amelita's shoulder gazes directly into her eyes and asserts his force of will in a single command. "STOP".

[14:35:51 28/02/11] @ Seryna : [Keiths starting to freak out at all the stuff im bringing, more books may freak him out ].

[14:36:39 28/02/11] @ Dean : (remember that it's -2 to use dominate on a frenzyer, and +2 for that frenzier to resist).

[14:37:12 28/02/11] Seratone : (ok Justin uses his willpower on the roll, gets 3 successes).

[14:37:25 28/02/11] Seratone : (he is down to 2 willpower).

[14:38:04 28/02/11] @ Seryna : [and this is before the meet..awesome ].

[14:38:08 28/02/11] @ Dean : (does that include the frenzy neg?).

[14:38:25 28/02/11] Seratone : (yeah).

[14:38:45 28/02/11] Seratone : http://sheetgen.dalines.net/wiki/WikiDiceRoller?hash=52d0b2aa.

[14:39:37 28/02/11] Static : Marcus' eyes open wider than ever before as he feels the crazy bitch start to drain his precious vitae. From somewhere inside his dead little heart, he summons enough strength to let out a hellacious, "Get the fuck off me, you crazy bitch!" Unfortunately, words mean little; the angry vampire's strength is still too much for the Daeva to overcome, and so he is still locked within her dangerous embrace. Suddenly he senses another presence; is it someone there to save him, or someone else who has come to beat his ass?.

[14:39:59 28/02/11] @ Dean : (there's also a heavy combat penalty for dominate, but it's hard to keep track of all these mods, 1 sux to resist).

[14:41:57 28/02/11] Seratone : Rachel sprints a few blocks away from the hotel and nearly slips and falls on the ice. When she comes to, she finds herself in a narrow alley way about two blocks down and no real recollection of how she got there...

[14:43:04 28/02/11] Seratone : (alright I have been summoned to do something mundane in my exciting real life but go ahead and update the thread before you all leave and I'll post when I return.).

[14:43:12 28/02/11] @ Seryna : The first thing Rachel does is to check her pocket. Finding her phone, she hastily checks the time. "What the fuck." She marvels, checking the time date of the last text she'd sent - to Amelita. She walks towards the street, trying to get her bearings..

[14:43:37 28/02/11] Seratone : (it'll take Rachel a couple turns to get back to the hotel).

[14:43:41 28/02/11] Seratone : ( bbiab).

[14:43:46 28/02/11] @ Dean : Amelita doesn't let go of Marc, but stops sucking at his neck, glaring balefully at Justin..

[14:43:54 28/02/11] @ Dean : (we haven't actually resolved this).

[14:44:22 28/02/11] @ Seryna : [no... first frenzy, fight, drainie...].

[14:45:17 28/02/11] @ Seryna : [Plus, we sort of need Justin here].

[14:45:31 28/02/11] @ Dean : [yeah].

[14:45:38 28/02/11] @ Seryna : [And we could use a minute to figure out whats going on, outside of the lobby and the mortals sight].

[14:48:22 28/02/11] Static : [It's insanity! ._.].

[14:49:03 28/02/11] @ Seryna : [ha, yeah. need a minute to figure out if Amelita thinks Marcs food].

[14:49:13 28/02/11] @ Seryna : [You still here Seratone].

[14:52:34 28/02/11] @ Dean : ok, we're going to continue this using what we can assume to be Justin's sheet].

[14:52:53 28/02/11] @ Dean : [which is probably 2 strength, no brawl].

[14:53:41 28/02/11] Static : [Whee! Hooray for anti-physical characters.].

[14:53:45 28/02/11] @ Seryna : [Rachel will be there in two turns. That ok Seratone].

[14:53:59 28/02/11] @ Seryna : [So we're back to Marc, then Rachel].

[14:57:56 28/02/11] @ Dean : [ok].

[14:58:31 28/02/11] Static : When Amelita pulls away from his neck to glare at the new arrival, Marcus seizes that as his only real chance at escape. Clenching his teeth and pushing as hard as he can, he manages to free himself from the psychotic woman's grip, push her away, and make a break for his car. He doesn't look back; every second counts. [Used WP, down to 2, 1 success].

[15:00:05 28/02/11] @ Dean : (roll stam+athletics and post your speed).

[15:01:04 28/02/11] Static : [1 success, speed 9].

[15:02:15 28/02/11] @ Dean : [ok, into turn 2, roll stam+athletics again. Rachel can enter next turn).

[15:03:17 28/02/11] Static : [Failure!].

[15:05:23 28/02/11] @ Dean : (grapple: 3 sux).

[15:06:57 28/02/11] @ Dean : Marc can see his car by the time the diminutive revenant slams into his back. The pair crumple to the ground, leather and skin scraping against the asphalt. Amelita now has a taste for Vitae which nearly mirrors the Beast's ferocity..

[15:07:12 28/02/11] @ Dean : (keep in mind that this vampire has drank your blood).

[15:07:18 28/02/11] @ Dean : (wink wink).

[15:07:53 28/02/11] Static : [going to cook and eat the cat, back in just a second].

[15:08:04 28/02/11] Seratone : (back).

[15:08:05 28/02/11] @ Dean : (and it's Marc's turn, then justin's turn, then rachel makes the scene, take it away anne).

[15:08:19 28/02/11] @ Dean : (yo, we're probably nearly done with the frenzy thing).

[15:08:33 28/02/11] Seratone : (lol unbelievable).

[15:08:50 28/02/11] @ Dean : (stalled with a chase, and now it's on one).

[15:08:59 28/02/11] @ Dean : *3 on one.

[15:09:30 28/02/11] @ Seryna : Rachel has loped into a jog towards the hotel, her mind awhirl with what happened. Her beast is clawing at its cage, the feeling as though her rib cage, without breath, is moving. What had happened? Why was her beast so riled? Where the fuck was her coterie?.

[15:10:06 28/02/11] @ Seryna : [Kevin you here].

[15:10:11 28/02/11] @ Seryna : [mind if I temp Justin].

[15:10:14 28/02/11] Seratone : (yeah).

[15:10:27 28/02/11] Seratone : (go for it, you have his sheet lol).

[15:12:11 28/02/11] @ Seryna : Justin looks surprised that he word, his blood, didnt have the desired affect. He steps forward, a determined look on his face. He leans in, attempting to lock his arms aroun Amelita's shoulders in an attempt to wrest her off of the newcomer..

[15:13:53 28/02/11] @ Seryna : Justin Jonnik rolled 3 dice to "Brawl" 2,10,5,1 (1 successes).

[15:14:42 28/02/11] @ Seryna : [one sec, think i miscounted].

[15:17:00 28/02/11] @ Dean : (after this round, Marc and Justin can combine their strength).

[15:17:19 28/02/11] @ Seryna : [yeah, he grabbed at her, but no die. Literally lol].

[15:17:30 28/02/11] @ Seryna : [so lets go on].

[15:17:38 28/02/11] Seratone : (keep going).

[15:18:20 28/02/11] @ Dean : and rachel, should she join in).

[15:18:29 28/02/11] Seratone : (yeah).

[15:18:40 28/02/11] Seratone : (smacks head. Oh predator's taint).

[15:19:09 28/02/11] @ Dean : Amelita snaps her jaws again at Marc's neck, wearing an expression of manic hunger..

[15:19:29 28/02/11] @ Dean : (I think it's cool, it shows exactly the kind of shit which makes going ot a new city to meet new kindred a bad idea).

[15:20:04 28/02/11] @ Seryna : [It is, really. Technically, this is exactly why we need each other, to guard against the insnity of the beast].

[15:20:37 28/02/11] @ Dean : (guess what, no sux!).

[15:21:33 28/02/11] @ Seryna : [yay!].

[15:21:55 28/02/11] Static : Marcus struggles, trying to summon the strength to shove Amelita away again, but he fails to dig deep enough into his reserves, the battle thusfar weakening him against her assault, sapping at his will to fight. "Come on, baby," he pleads quietly, "you don't want to do this. Seriously. What will killing me get you?" [Failure on the escape roll.].

[15:22:51 28/02/11] Seratone : Rachel notices that about an inch of snow has fallen on the ground, and that the down town streets are much as they were before. Very much abandoned and desolate. The whole place has an errie feel to it. Then Rachel finds herself in the hotel parking lot,. She sees the vampires clutching at eachother with their bared fangs and gutteral hisses. Fortunately, no mortals are visible in the immediate vicinity..

[15:23:10 28/02/11] @ Dean : (ok, team grapple system: the characters can combine their strength for the purposes of overpowering amelita).

[15:23:18 28/02/11] Seratone : (I lived in dayton. It really is that bad).

[15:24:39 28/02/11] @ Dean : (oh, I forgot to ask, what's Marc's BP?).

[15:25:04 28/02/11] Static : [1].

[15:25:31 28/02/11] @ Seryna : She quickened her pace, sprinting towards the fight. Recognizing Amelita, she gives the second man a searching glance. Why was Justin grabbing at Amelita? The bared fangs, the look in her eye- Rachel assumes the worst. She sprints forward and takes position behind the stranger, working to keep Amelita's face from the man's jugular..

[15:26:44 28/02/11] @ Dean : (Marc can try and form a partial vinculum with Amelita, the BP difference just means she gets +1 to resist).

[15:27:57 28/02/11] Seratone : (sernya keep rolling for justin, I'm running damage control here lol).

[15:28:17 28/02/11] @ Seryna : [hes your char].

[15:28:37 28/02/11] @ Seryna : [Go ahead and take over, i only took over because we thought you had left].

[15:29:07 28/02/11] @ Seryna : [so combining strength thing, does that give any good mods?].

[15:30:10 28/02/11] Seratone : (lol ok can you send me his sheet?).

[15:30:54 28/02/11] @ Dean : [well let's tally the strengths, you each have 2 strength, so that means you all get +3 taking amelita's strength into account).

[15:31:17 28/02/11] Seratone : ok so is it just one big roll or 3 separate rolls?.

[15:31:19 28/02/11] @ Seryna : [ok, let me re roll].

[15:31:44 28/02/11] @ Dean : (three seperate).

[15:32:06 28/02/11] @ Seryna : 2011-02-28 23:31:54 Rachel Giles rolled 4 dice to "Brawling with Amelita" 1,2,4,2 (0 successes).

[15:32:16 28/02/11] @ Seryna : its not going to be Rachel saving the day.

[15:32:49 28/02/11] Seratone : http://sheetgen.dalines.net/wiki/WikiDiceRoller?hash=9ab2d4d2.

[15:32:54 28/02/11] Seratone : (1 sux.

[15:33:38 28/02/11] Static : [Failure!].

[15:34:37 28/02/11] @ Seryna : [this is sort of hilarious].

[15:34:43 28/02/11] @ Dean : Justin manages to wrench Amelita off of Marc. The Mekhet crawls around, shocked at the abrupt change..

[15:34:52 28/02/11] @ Seryna : [how many people to get the little Mekhet off of Marc].

[15:36:39 28/02/11] Seratone : Justin grits his teeth as he throws his weight behind shoving the woman off of Marc..

[15:37:36 28/02/11] Static : As Amelita is pulled away from him, Marcus backpedals as quickly as he can. "Fuck, man, what the fuck?!" He glares down the woman, legs still in position for him to flee the scene as quickly as possible if she happens to break free of Justin's grasp..

[15:38:11 28/02/11] @ Seryna : "Calm down." Rachel steps in front of Marc, trying to keep an eye on him. "You Marc?".

[15:38:33 28/02/11] @ Dean : (there's no real rules for ending frenzy other than ST discretion, so yeah, ser?).

[15:38:47 28/02/11] Seratone : (go ahead it ends).

[15:39:15 28/02/11] Seratone : (Did Marc take some damage?).

[15:39:32 28/02/11] @ Dean : (1 lethal and -1 vitae).

[15:39:37 28/02/11] @ Dean : (a scratch).

[15:41:20 28/02/11] @ Dean : Amelita pulls herself to her feet, dusting off the lacy burlesque frock and checking her weave with a ringed hand. She glares back at Marc. "You! 'Did somebody order a fucking bass player. I am him'. What is this? What are you thinking? Idiota.".

[15:41:35 28/02/11] @ Dean : (how are we handling the vinculum?).

[15:43:35 28/02/11] @ Seryna : "Holy.." Rachel wipes a bit of sludge off the front of jer jacket. "That... was great. Really. Maybe we should plan our meetings better, now.".

[15:43:35 28/02/11] Seratone : "Damnit this is unacceptable." Justin snaps angrily as he looks at marc and Amelita. "Both of you pull yourselves together and remember who you are and where you are.".

[15:44:23 28/02/11] @ Seryna : "Hey." Anger blossoms over Rachel's face. "We didn't want this to go down here, Justin. We should have handled this somewhere else.".

[15:45:47 28/02/11] Static : Marcus glares right back at Amelita, some of his swagger returning now that he's confident he's not going to get annihilated again. "Baby, that's just how I am. You'd best get used to it, because you're fucking stuck with me." He turns his head a little to glance at Rachel. "Yeah, I'm Marc. Marcus is the real name, but I like to keep it short.".

[15:46:22 28/02/11] @ Dean : "Shut the fuck up, Jeffe. What are you doing in the lobby, when I'm supposed to 'scout' this place? Hmm? So don't you act like you haven't fucked this up.".

[15:46:31 28/02/11] @ Dean : (at Justin).

[15:48:44 28/02/11] Seratone : Justin forces himself to take a deep breathe.. "Alriht fine, we all screwed up. Is that a fair assessment?" He mutters something under his breathe and then looks at Marc. "Let's start getting it right then. The message said room 104 right?" To marc: "I'm Justin Jonnik..".

[15:49:50 28/02/11] @ Seryna : "Well, welcome to the big happy family, Marc. I'm Rachel." Rachel half turns, eying the hotel lobby to see if any one was noticing the commotion. "We're supposed to meet someone here. I thought the plan was that we let Amelita check it out first. That still sounds like a good plan, but I think we fucked each other up too much to go in blind, Justin. Lets talk it over for a minute. Amelita and Marc -" She eyes them over closely. "- you going to be okay tonight?".

[15:50:43 28/02/11] @ Dean : Amelita continues to glare at Marc. She tastes his blood in her throat and concentrates on it with Memnisse..

[15:52:16 28/02/11] Seratone : From where you are standing, it doesn't look like anyone is in the hotel lobby. The parking lot is almost empty as well. Along the street, another snow plow lobs along, oblivious to the predaotrs in its midst..

[15:52:19 28/02/11] @ Dean : (using meminisse 1 to create blood sympathy with Marc).

[15:52:33 28/02/11] @ Seryna : "We got one meat bag in there, on the computer." Rachel stated, glancing around the parking lot. "We could use him to see who checked into 104." [How many cars are in the parking lot?].

[15:53:10 28/02/11] Seratone : [you count 5).

[15:53:46 28/02/11] @ Dean : "I'm fine," she answers. "But 'you'..." she points at Marc, aggressively, "...you wanna watch what you say to me, now I've had a taste. I don't care 'how you are'.".

[15:55:24 28/02/11] Seratone : Justin nods his head to Rachel. "Good thinking." He steps over to face Amelita. "Amelita, could you check the hotel for us?" He was hoping to get her focused on the task at hand..

[15:55:29 28/02/11] Static : "I'll be fine," Marcus replied. "As long as your mildly psychotic friend here doesn't try to assault me again." He glances around, eyeing the cars. "We could," he replies to Rachel. "If you want, I can handle that part." Amelita speaks and his gaze immediately becomes cold as it settles on her. "I've got something you can taste, baby." With a playful (suicidal?) wink, he awaits Rachel's response..

[15:56:15 28/02/11] @ Dean : Amelita slaps Marc across the face..

[15:57:33 28/02/11] @ Seryna : "This is going great. Chance at your own coterie. Thank you, Mr. President." Rachel mutters under her breath, tucking her hands in her pockets. "This President guy is really fucking with us. " As Amelita moves on Marc again, Rachel straightens. "Amelita. You really want to be the Presidents tool tonight? Come on. Put it away." She looks at Marc as she says this..

[15:59:34 28/02/11] @ Dean : The Mekhet mutters a string of foreign curses, turning to Justin. "I'll check the hotel. Anything to get away from this pig. Teach him some manners for me, would you?".

[16:00:53 28/02/11] Static : "Clearly you're into the rough stuff. Maybe a bit too crazy for me," Marcus says as he rubs his cheek where Amelita's hand landed. "Pig? Come on, now, let's be fair. I may be a pig, but I'm a fucking tasty pig." He shrugs, finally looking toward Justin. "Marcus Altemeier. Sorry we couldn't meet under more pleasant circumstances.".

[16:01:43 28/02/11] @ Seryna : Rachel relaxes somewhat as Amelita scales down the assault. She wasn't eager to get brawling again. "Marc," She tried to catch his attention. "When you just got owned by a Mekhet that barely pushes 90 llbs, you may want to watch the lip. She might bite it off. ".

[16:02:52 28/02/11] @ Seryna : "So, lets focus. What can you do, besides invite your own ass whupping?".

[16:03:09 28/02/11] Seratone : "Fuckin A." Justin mutters under his breath, looking slightly relieved..

[16:04:28 28/02/11] Seratone : He nods to the mekhet as she heads for the hotel. "Hitting on women will only get you so far in this business sadly to say.".

[16:04:37 28/02/11] Seratone : (said to Marc).

[16:07:13 28/02/11] Static : "Drink, fuck, and get that poor little guy in that hotel to tell me anything I want to know," Marcus replied to Rachel. "Apart from that... well, what else does anyone need to do?" He quirks an eyebrow at Justin's remark. "She was clearly hitting on me. I've got the marks to prove it.".

[16:08:02 28/02/11] Seratone : Inside the hotel, the place is empty. The man you saw earlier behind the desk at the computer is gone. You do notice a little bell to call an attendant and a halway that leads to room 104....

[16:08:12 28/02/11] @ Seryna : "She takes his spleen and puts it on her little rock, I'm not saying anything." Rachel says dryly. "But seriously, Marc, my new crazy little brother - scale it down. She really has this big bloody rock. Its sort of scary. There's a place for an array of your internal organs." She smiles, but it doesn't reach her eyes. "You got enough juice for that tonight? We're meeting up with someone who says theres a death threat on us. I'm thinking we'll need you to make thats ong bird sing.".

[16:08:20 28/02/11] Seratone : (That would be for Amelita).

[16:08:40 28/02/11] @ Seryna : [song bird*.

[16:10:13 28/02/11] Seratone : "Well at least he has a sense of humor. It might help with morale." Justin comments to Rachel somewhat dryly..

[16:11:16 28/02/11] @ Dean : Amelita gazed around the desk, searching for logs or guestbooks or anything. She wasn't worried about cameras, being hollow mekhet..

[16:11:33 28/02/11] @ Dean : (I'm going to roll wits+investigate for the front desk.

[16:11:41 28/02/11] Seratone : (ok).

[16:11:42 28/02/11] @ Seryna : "Justin, we have to sleep with these people." Rachel smiles despite herself. "You want to wake up with thier blood all over you?".

[16:12:01 28/02/11] Static : "I think I'll be fine," he replies. "Lost a little of myself back there, but I should be fine. I can get whatever we need out of someone. At least I hope so." [Completely forgot to roll for vitae way back when, just did it, got 3, minus 1 from earlier leaves 2! >.>].

[16:12:45 28/02/11] @ Dean : (1 sux).

[16:12:46 28/02/11] @ Seryna : "This place is lousy for food." Rachel takes in the 5 cars. "And theres the weather that has be worried. We need to be real careful.".

[16:14:24 28/02/11] Seratone : "Its not him that I'm worried about Rachel...yet." He smirks quietly then looks back to Marc. "I'm sure your skills will be an asset to the team.".

[16:15:08 28/02/11] Seratone : Amelita notices that room 104 has been flagged VACANT/UNOCCUPIED. She also notices a series of room keys, one of which is for room 104..

[16:15:28 28/02/11] @ Seryna : Rachel turns, eying the hotel lobby. "Justin, I'm thinking you and me need to be clean up crew on this. Let 'Lita and Marc try to finesse why we're in trouble. Why we missed our meet.".

[16:17:23 28/02/11] Seratone : Justin checks his watch. "I agree. Fortunately the weather should be a convenient enough excuse to postpone until tomorrow night.".

[16:17:52 28/02/11] @ Seryna : "Which you should probably do, don't you think?".

[16:18:29 28/02/11] Static : "Yeah... why exactly are we here again? I thought the meeting was supposed to be somewhere else?" He quirks an eyebrow as he asks the question, glancing between Rachel and Justin..

[16:18:53 28/02/11] @ Dean : Amelita takes the key and searches for any petty cash, rattling off a text to Rachel: '104 vacant on record' The Mekhet traipses down the halls, searching for 104. She keeps her senses boosted, in order to hear all she can behind the doors..

[16:19:17 28/02/11] Seratone : Justin frowns slightly eyeing his long time companion for a few moments before finally relenting..

[16:20:07 28/02/11] Seratone : Amelita finds 104 all the way down the hall. She sees nothing unusual along the way..

[16:20:29 28/02/11] Seratone : (alright I have to eat dinner let me fast forward and let you know what yo find in the room).

[16:20:41 28/02/11] Seratone : (I'll throw it out there for you to chew on).

[16:21:06 28/02/11] @ Seryna : "We were told the other place was a trap." She says to Jon, picking up her vibrating cell phone. "Hm. Says that 104 is vacant. Maybe we should back her up on this." She looks up at the windows. "Figure out where her exit should be if this goes wrong.".

[16:21:14 28/02/11] Seratone : (Amelita finds a letter, it reads as follows).

[16:21:33 28/02/11] Seratone : To whom it may concern,If you are reading this you are in grave danger. Our enemies are two or three steps ahead of us. But perhaps if you listen, the gap can be narrowed. Two years ago, President Logan asked me and three other neonates to investigate this city of Dayton Ohio. We came to this place and contacted the “ghoul” of “Prince Damian.” When we arrived at the meeting, we were ambushed by a group of mortals. They killed two of us on the spot. The rest of us fled. It took them six months to track down the third. They put her down as well, leaving me alone in this God forsaken place. It wasn’t long afterwards when I found out through my sire that I had been framed for the murders, and the blood hunt was called against me. I don’t know why this is happening or even how. But IT IS happening again. It is happening to you. I hope to meet you in person if you survive long enough. But I don’t trust you. I don’t know if they sent you to take me out. You need to trust me…Salim..

[16:21:43 28/02/11] Seratone : (bbiab).

[16:22:46 28/02/11] @ Seryna : [To Marc, woops].

[16:25:12 28/02/11] @ Seryna : [I'm thinking we prepare to bed down nearby and plan our next move. ].

[16:27:20 28/02/11] @ Dean : [yeah].

[16:29:05 28/02/11] @ Seryna : [Would Amelita bring the note on down?].

[16:29:23 28/02/11] @ Seryna : [Im thinking we can drive back to our haven and start planning].

[16:30:32 28/02/11] Static : "If anything goes wrong in there, I feel sorry for whoever gets in her way," Marcus says with a smirk. "But in all seriousness, she can run, and she's on the first floor. Shouldn't be too awfully difficult to get out.".

[16:31:21 28/02/11] @ Dean : yeah.

[16:31:48 28/02/11] @ Seryna : "Yeah.." Rachel says slowly, not like that they wern't in control of the situation. "You guys need to do anything before daylight?".

[16:32:39 28/02/11] @ Dean : Amelita comes out lugging a tv and the note. "Let's get in the car and talk," she whispers to the others..

[16:33:07 28/02/11] @ Seryna : [TV! lol].

[16:33:31 28/02/11] @ Seryna : Rachel silently agrees, shifting into the passenger seat of Justin's car..

[16:34:21 28/02/11] Static : "I need to eat, I'm fucking starving..." Marcus replies to Rachel, trailing off as he sees Amelita coming out with a TV. "I'm not even gonna ask," he says with a dismissive gesture. "Go on ahead, I'll follow you, then I'll find some food." He starts off toward his car..

[16:35:05 28/02/11] @ Seryna : [want to auto to the haven?].

[16:36:37 28/02/11] @ Dean : Amelita smirks "Hey, if you're hungry..." She bares her forearm at Marc..

[16:38:09 28/02/11] Static : He replies to Amelita with nothing but a raised middle finger over his shoulder..

[16:38:15 28/02/11] @ Seryna : "Free erntertainment. Now all we need to boost a fucking computer...".

[16:40:02 28/02/11] @ Dean : Amelita struggles with the TV. "Help me with this," she groans. "There was a note.".

[16:41:27 28/02/11] Seratone : (back).

[16:41:51 28/02/11] @ Dean : (we haven't gotten very far).

[16:42:27 28/02/11] Seratone : (ok we are back in the haven planning).

[16:42:55 28/02/11] Seratone : [The haven is the basement of an abandoned house in the slums].

[16:43:22 28/02/11] Seratone : Meanwhile Justin had called Chelsea Spangler and managed to postpone the meeting until tomorrow night..

[16:44:40 28/02/11] @ Seryna : After helping Amelita get the TV into the car- and then into the haven- Rachel propsed that Salim was the same person the President had warned her about. "He said he should be treated like any blood traitor." She stated..

[16:46:10 28/02/11] @ Seryna : "What did the Ghoul say?" Rachel asked Justin. "When you postponed?".

[16:46:12 28/02/11] Seratone : Justin looks at the note with a sense of foreboding on his face. "This is mind boggling. Who do we trust? The regime, or a criminal?".

[16:46:33 28/02/11] @ Dean : "Who says we have to trust anybody?".

[16:46:58 28/02/11] Static : Marcus enters the haven behind the others, keeping mostly to himself until Justin poses the question concerning who to trust. "I've met some fairly trustworthy criminals in my day, but never a trustworthy regime. Just my two cents.".

[16:47:29 28/02/11] Seratone : Justin nods his head. "Chelsea? She just said she would have to check with Damian but given the weather, the same time tomorrow would be acceptable. She also commented about meeting one of Rachel's people.".

[16:47:31 28/02/11] @ Seryna : "I say we trust whose in this room." Rachel stated grimly. "And thats only if lil Tiny doesn't suddenly think I look tasty.".

[16:48:10 28/02/11] @ Seryna : "My ghouls? Fuck." Rachel opened her cell phone, checking for any messages from her meat bags..

[16:48:24 28/02/11] @ Dean : Amelita frowns, although there is a hungry cast to her made-up feature as she glances over at Marc..

[16:48:29 28/02/11] @ Seryna : "I need better meat bags." She declared, disgusted..

[16:49:00 28/02/11] Seratone : Text message: Hey Rachel. I met up with Damian's people. They were cool. Had a beer and watched basketball. Cant believe it was no show 2nite..

[16:49:33 28/02/11] @ Seryna : Rachel lowered her phone, shaking her head..

[16:50:35 28/02/11] Static : "I'm more worried about her eyeballing me like I'm a cheeseburger," Marcus remarked to Rachel as he caught Amelita's glance. "No news is good news, and I'm assuming you got bad news?" Also posed to Rachel..

[16:50:46 28/02/11] Seratone : "Perhaps they'd be better suited to watching this place during the day." Justin suggests..

[16:51:21 28/02/11] @ Seryna : "Perhaps they are better suited to watching basketball." Rachel was disgusted. "But yeah, lets assume thats the new assignment for Beavis and Butthead.".

[16:51:54 28/02/11] @ Dean : "No. Don't let them know about this place, you idiot! I have rituals laid out for the express purpose of watching this place!".

[16:52:20 28/02/11] @ Seryna : Rachel blinked at Amelita, startled by her outburst..

[16:52:25 28/02/11] @ Dean : Amelita calmed down. "Damian's guys can get to the ghouls," she explained.

[16:52:48 28/02/11] @ Seryna : "Or...okay... maybe my blood leeches are less than useless.".

[16:53:29 28/02/11] Static : "Testy, testy... But she has a point," Marcus said. "If this really is a trap, no one can know about this place but us, otherwise this little adventure could end very badly.".

[16:54:05 28/02/11] @ Seryna : "Look, if we think they blood pissed my ghouls, this is even easier." Rachel proposed. "I tell my ghouls to go furnish that 'safe haven' we were told to go to. Then tell them to entertain themselves, I'll be at the meeting. We can see if some mortals try to fuck the places up.".

[16:55:33 28/02/11] Seratone : Justin grits his fangs slightly. "I'd rather have them and not need them then need them and not have them." Justin shakes his head. "Rachel I won't have you putting yourself in harms way. I think the prudent thing is to have Amelita scout the meeting tomorrow night and see if this Damian or any other fang shows up.".

[16:55:55 28/02/11] @ Dean : "Ok, that'll work." Amelita sits down next to Marc, cultivating discomfort. "I don't trust Damian.".

[16:56:11 28/02/11] @ Seryna : "And what happens if the mortals who killed - what, three other new Fangs?- find 'Lita?".

[16:56:16 28/02/11] Seratone : "Assuming he evn exists." Justin remarks dryly..

[16:57:39 28/02/11] Seratone : "I am confident in her abilities." Justin replies to Rachel..

[16:58:05 28/02/11] @ Dean : Amelita eyes Justin suspiciously..

[16:58:29 28/02/11] @ Dean : "No, she's right. Why do I have to be the mine canary?".

[16:58:46 28/02/11] @ Seryna : "Really? You are confident in her abilities when you assumed she could cloak herself in the Blood and you didn't know she couldn't do that?".

[16:59:55 28/02/11] Static : "You are getting way too fucking close to me," Marcus mutters to Amelita from the corner of his mouth before addressing the others. "I'm forced to agree, Justin. While I think that little miss psycho can handle herself in a fight, the odds could definitely be stacked against her if something goes down.".

[17:00:08 28/02/11] Seratone : Justin grits his teeth. "Oh...I just assumed." He grinds his fangs a little once more. "Well so much for that idea." He looks at marc. "Marc do you have an opinion?".

[17:00:28 28/02/11] @ Seryna : "Maybe this Salim guy is BSing us, maybe theres a posse of day loving humans out there ready to jump us. What that note tells us is that this other group thought they were safe and split up. They're ash." She also turns and eyes Marc at Justin's easy loping of the ball..

[17:00:29 28/02/11] Seratone : (already answered lol).

[17:00:51 28/02/11] @ Dean : Amelita turn to Marcus. "You call me that one more time, I'm going to fuck you up royally, are we clear?".

[17:01:26 28/02/11] @ Seryna : "Guard your spleen." Rachel stage whispered to Marc..

[17:03:05 28/02/11] Static : "I'll stop calling you that when you stop eyeballing me like your next meal, baby," he replies to Amelita before turning to Rachel. "My spleen is the least of my worries.".

[17:04:53 28/02/11] Seratone : Justin shakes his head in disgust at the bickering. "Come on Marc, Amelita. We need to focus on the matter at hand.".

[17:06:01 28/02/11] @ Dean : "You think it's funny that I lost myself on account of your strolling in, whooping and hollering like the grinning, loudmouthed idiot you've turned out to be so far?" Amelita asked, livid. "No, I don't think that's fair. You don't want me to drain you? Act civil. Everytime I hear that I just want to suck all the vitae out of your stupid slab of a face.".

[17:06:01 28/02/11] @ Seryna : "I'd like to hear them," Rachel proposed to marc. "- your worries.".

[17:06:36 28/02/11] @ Seryna : "Well, thats a fairly good worry." Rachel replied, giving Amlita a guaging look..

[17:12:08 28/02/11] Static : "Touche," Marcus replied. "And there I thought we were bonding." He shrugs. "Consider this a formal apology, then. I'm sorry." He glances from Justin to Rachel. "You're right, Justin, we need to focus, my worries about my physical well-being notwithstanding. Back on the subject at hand, no, our friend here is not going to go in alone. At least not without some kind of short-range support group.".

[17:12:28 28/02/11] Seratone : "Assumiung we can put our differences aside, what is our course of action?" Justin paces about. "Maybe we should just show up prepared for a fight?".

[17:13:01 28/02/11] Seratone : "Rache;'s ghouls could probably procure some weapons by daylight.".

[17:14:07 28/02/11] Seratone : "But I hate that sort of recklessness. Dying once was bad enough, I'd hate to go through that again." The ventrue seems as indecisive as ever..

[17:14:11 28/02/11] @ Seryna : "I agree with that." Rachel stated, surprised at Marc's stated concern. "They could, but we're fairly certain that at least one of my guys has been blood hosed. I'd say we should rely on ourselves...".

[17:14:47 28/02/11] @ Dean : "Listen, I'm not a fighter. At all. That stuff back there was all the Beast. I don't think we should plan on a fight.".

[17:15:01 28/02/11] @ Seryna : "I think we should stick to our first idea- just find out if we need to fight.".

[17:15:44 28/02/11] Seratone : "Then we need intelligence. Who is our lead? The only one I can think of is Chelsea the ghou...the other one is Salim, but he might be harder to find. The dossier mentioned that he was Mekhet.".

[17:16:41 28/02/11] @ Seryna : "Set my ghouls up with one idea and see if any one shows up looking for a fight. We can stick some effing cameras around there, no need to risk Amelita." She gave Amelita a look. "Not that it wasn't hilarious that it took three of us to tear you off of the Big Bad boy here.".

[17:18:30 28/02/11] Seratone : (alright I'm about ready to call it a night, Static you need to make a hunting roll?).

[17:18:56 28/02/11] Static : [just a sec, random phone call].

[17:20:34 28/02/11] Seratone : Justin nods his head to Rachel. "I agree.".

[17:21:56 28/02/11] Static : "I didn't find it funny at all," Marcus replied, stage-glowering as he stood. "But yes, we can use cameras. If we lose a camera, it's a few bucks gone. No great loss." He glances toward the door. "Now, if you'll excuse me, I'm fucking starving." He gives a sharp look back toward Amelita. "No funny business." [yes, he definitely needs to hunt].

[17:23:53 28/02/11] Seratone : The most plentiful source of blood in the immediate area is a crack house with several addicts shooting up in the house and sorrounding alley ways. Beyond tha, there are few people out on the street. (No penalty for drugged blood -2 for non drugged blood).

[17:24:54 28/02/11] @ Seryna : [watching].

[17:26:22 28/02/11] Seratone : Justin shys away from hunting before the dawn. The murder he had committed had rattled him a bit. With about 3 hours before dawn, Justin decided to spend his time reading quietly in the basement..

[17:28:18 28/02/11] @ Seryna : Rachel stays in the haven; dreading the thought of conflict tomorrow. She sets herself up in her sleeping roll, prepared to meet the dawn..

[17:29:09 28/02/11] @ Dean : Amelita watches TV in the hours leading up to dawn..

[17:29:20 28/02/11] Seratone : roll is manip or presence + persuasion or socialize (basicly any combination of social).

[17:29:55 28/02/11] Seratone : (subterfuge would also work for skill).

[17:31:23 28/02/11] Static : The insufferable asshole wanders out of the haven, glancing back and forth to ensure that he is not seen. Searching for a clean source of blood, he spies a young lady making her way down the sidewalk in a bit of a hurry. Closing the distance quickly but quietly, he remarks, "A bit cold to be out, isn't it?" [1 success on the hunt roll, bleh].

[17:31:55 28/02/11] Seratone : [how much blood does he want?].

[17:33:16 28/02/11] Static : [he's not gonna kill her, but enough to make it for a couple days. Don't really remember how much blood is in a human].

[17:36:01 28/02/11] @ Seryna : [3 - 4 ish].

[17:36:17 28/02/11] Static : [2 sounds good. ].

[17:36:25 28/02/11] Seratone : [alright he gets 4].
