  1. Horatio's cheeks flushed. It was subtle, but it was there. Casey sure wasn't the beat around the bush, demure type, that was for sure. He managed a smile, a polite one that told her he wasn't goign to stay. She'd read faces in the courtroom of times and could tell a lot from their expression. "Ah, no. No, I'm sorry but I-I should get going...," he managed another, flushed smile that almost gave him a schoolboy quality charm to him. "Thank you for the wine, though." He stepped out and turned as she was closing the door. "Should you need anything, Casey, please, just call." A polite nod signified the begin of his long walk down the hallway of her apartment building.

  3. "I don't know," he shook his head as he considered the question. "It's possible. I have my team consulting with jagglings, so, we may know more in the few days. I think she might be though. Ravenna doesn't do anything by mistake. Maya was as out of place as a person could be and if she wasn't supposed to be there, well, I know Raven. Maya would be three pints low and begging for death. Instead, she was cordial, which means she wants something from Maya."
  4. "She's offered to meet with you, next week." He paced a bit faster, excited that she seemed ready to go along with it. "Show up, meet, put up with her ego and attitude," he pointed at Casey and stopped his pacing. "Don't piss her off. I know that's asking a lot, I've known her for four decades and I want to press her face into a wall every time I talk to her, but a woman like her you need to play up to her ego. Swallow the pride pill and just see what you can find out. Before next Friday, we'll get together and I'll introduce you to my pack, er, my team."
  5. You may. Keep in mind that those Merits may not kick in right away, flaws, however, will. Also, if there is a 20th book available for your chosen critter, you may use the 20th book to create your character.
  6. "That's just it," he paused. "The people I deal with, and, possibly you and the other Chosen at some point, aren't exactly... well, people, Casey. Spirits, demons, angels, you name it, everyone wants a thumb in the Chosen's pie, but they're all very old and greedy and won't tell us why. They're not really the doorbell type, either." "I can imagine," Casey chuckled. "We need to know who the other Chosen are, and I think Ravenna knows." He motioned towards her with his wine glass. "She's invited you to meet with her. We can use this, if you're willing. Do you own a 'little black dress'?"
  7. Horatio chuckled again. "Well, we don't know," he shrugged honestly. "Usually, if you were, you'd have undergone your first change by now. That's where most tales of werewolves are true... we don't control the change, and... well, we don't control ourselves most of the time. Generally that happens around puberty, no offense, but I think you're a few years past that." He sipped his wine nodded. "Nice." He complimented. "She knows I'm a werewolf, yes. Most of us supernaturals keep tabs on the others. You see, just like humans, even we have our bad apples. Ravenna might be evil and conniving, but believe it or not, she's one of the good ones, but she is old, and very powerful by Kindred standards. She can influence people's emotions, lord over a room like a queen or have everyone cowering in fear of her. We supernaturals are more resilient to it, as we have our own tricks." "All I really know about you, Casey is that you are Chosen, by what or whom, I have no idea. People smarter and wiser than me do know... but they're not picking up the phone."
  8. Some of you may be wondering exactly where you're going to go from here... so far you're people who are seeing wierd things and have no idea where that leads in relation to you as a player... So... here goes... Pick a 'template'. You may choose from: Werewolf: The Apocalypse, Changeling: The Dreaming, Hunter: The Reckoning, or Mage: The Ascension. Simply add the particulars to your sheet and remove what things no longer apply to you (like Virtues). You are not reimbursed anything that you lose, but don't worry those things are into consideration as your character's 'grow into' the new life that seems to be knocking on their door. You can still choose things like Tribe and whatnot, but for the most part it will not come into play until later... remember, we're not using the RAW, we're making things up as we go. We don't have any bonus points to spend. We spent them in the beginning. Yes, you did. Because you were a person before you were this. Again, that will be taken into consideration later, for now, you get the bare bones because none of you are proficient on how live like a life of weirdness and strangeness, yet. Why not Vampire or Wraith? The dead cannot be Chosen. They can only be choosers. We will be going to a lot of places that are saturated in sunlight. By being a vampire you will miss about 70% of the story and frankly I'm not interested in making concessions for that 'one guy'. So... who are you? What was so special inside you that the Choosers... chose you? Go.
  9. Horatio chuckled, keeping his hands in his pockets he kept pacing about. It was honestly nice to talk about this stuff with someone other than a werewolf and not be in violation of the Silver Pact. "No, Casey. I can change my form whenever I wish, although, depending on the phase of the moon that can easier, or harder for me. Longer, or shorter. Forget what you've read, we are not forced to change on certain nights, we don't become just wolves, we have several forms we can take, all wolf related. Strong emotions can trigger a change, even some forms of magic, but by and large most Garou can change when so they choose." "Garou?" She asked, cautiously. "What we call ourselves. Garou. Most simply refer to us a 'The People'. We've been the stewards and protectors of this world since before humans we a thing." He stopped and faced her, smiling with a bit of pride. "We come from all walks of life, all manner of tribes, and we protect the world from malevolent spirits and evils some you can see, most have remained invisible to you... until recently. From evil warlocks, to corrupted fae to... well, vampires and everything in between. If it helps to process... my life is like Hellboy if we had an unlimited special effects budget, except the CGI is actually trying to kill me." "So, you're like the werecat guy in Hellboy?" She ventured a guess. "Please," Horatio snickered. "Werecats are pussies."
  10. The squeek of a few rats drew their attention away from the wretched spirit. Jadzia's heart went out to the malformed creature; this was not what she wanted, but for now was deigned to at least repurpose this creature in the hopes her deeds here could purify this place. It started as two or three rats, running past like the ship they were on was sinking. The it was seven to ten... The nervousness crept into all of them as the wall of eyes that consistently remained just outside their range of vision suddenly collapsed in on itself in an avalanche of bodies and tails and high pitched squeeks... hundreds, if not thousands of rats swarmed the hallway like a deluge of vermin caught in a current... Piper screamed a short, shrill shriek as within a matter of moments everyone was up to their knees in rats... and the 'water' was rising as they crawled, skitterd, climbed and became tangled in hair and clothing.
  11. I love The Raven. It never gets old. The post with the Lacey text conversation has been edited to allow Lilly time to speak with Jason, as she intended.
  12. "No hyperbole, Casey." Horatio said as he stepped away from her and walked back around the kitchen into the living room. He stuffed his hand in the pockets of his suit and finally turned to face her. "Everything you believe about your reality... is a lie. Magic is real. Werewolves are real. Vampires are real. And monsters? Very real, Casey." He took one hand out of his pocket and she heard the slight jingle of change or his keys, maybe? "Me? I'm over eighty years old. Horatio Mourne is my real name, but I'm also my own son." The look she gave him demanded an explanation. He chuckled. "I wasn't lying when I said I went to the coffee shop with my dad. You, just weren't born yet. I was Horatio Mourne Jr., then. After some time I faked my death and left everything to my son, Horation Mourne the third, technically me." He pointed to himself. "We werewolves live a very, very long time. We're not immortal like vampires, but we can go a couple centuries if we're lucky, or good at what we do." He paced around he living room, expressing himself with his free hand as he spoke. "If you stave off disbelief, as keep an open mind, yes, Casey, I can prove it to you. I know I was cruel at the party, Casey, but the purpose was two fold. One, I still have an image to portray before The Herd-" "Woah... wait, The Herd?" She asked. "Normal people. Everyday mortal Joes and Janes going about their lives." He stated. "I had a reputation, and I had to enforce that reputation with so many people around. After all, that is my day job. Second, I needed to see if the stress or the pressure would awaken anything within you. The Elders and I of my pack... well, to be honest, we don't exactly what's so special about you and the others, but make no mistakes, something out there wants you dead, and myself and some colleagues of mine have been assigned to keep you safe."
  13. Horatio stood there with nothing more than an expression of shock. That was certainly not the reaction he was expecting from Casey. "Uh..." was all he could muster as she broke down and began crying. He slowly approached her and wrapped his arms around her. It was an intimate embrace, it was more the 'I'm not sure what do right now, so I saw this in a movie and I hope it works' manner of awkward embrace. "Look, I uh," he started. He held he close and let her get it all out of her system. "I know it's a lot, but, your life is forever changed. I didn't change it, no one did, and you certainly didn't ask for any of this... but the spirits have dropped this on your doorstep, and you have to live with it. They sent me to help you. To help all of you. I'm trying, here, Casey. All I'm asking for is a chance."
  14. Mycroft's persona sifted through the Seattle directory as Chunin sped through the radio stations in his car, waiting for the ol' dwarf to finish his thing. He'd settled for the 'Punk Goes Pop' station not long before Mycroft came back to the Real. "Well," Mycroft started. "That was interesting." "It was, yeah," Chunin nodded. "Why would anybody want to remake a punk version of 'Chrome Palace'? It's a horri-" "Not the song," the dwarf rolled his eyes. "You idgit. I found her place, and she has a restraining order out on him." "Oooo," Chunin smiled. "Juicy." Mycroft put the car in gear and they were off to meet with Mrs. Fisher. It wasn't far, only about a twenty minutes drive in Seattle evening traffic and Mycroft only had to reprimand the human idiot twice on messing with his radio. Laura Fisher wasn't exactly rolling in nuyen, in fact her apartment was in one the slummier parts of the downtown area, not too far from downtown proper where all the rich elves could look down on her neighborhood and thank their stars they were elves, and rich, and better than everyone else. Mycroft didn't see the harm in bringing up his side arm, tucked casually under his coat. Chunin didn't appear to have any weapons, save for a combat knife tucked upside down underneath the vest he was wearing. It wasn't a good neighborhood, but thankfully they hadn't ran into trouble with gangs yet tonight. The two men entered the building and made their way up the stairs since (surprise) the elevator was out. They'd both been in low-income buildings like this plenty of times, with trash strewn about the hallways and every wall was tagged in either luminescent paint or ARO tags displaying all manner of programmable art. The image two framed animated image of the Renraku logo sodomizing what appeared to be the entire city of Seattle, Chunin thought was particularly tasteful. "I don't know," they heard from the door that was supposed to be Laura's. The voice was muffled but seemed feminine. They both hear the loud smack that came next. A second voice was muffled through the door. "I can do this all night, lady. You better start remembering something."
  15. Horatio paced about while Casey glared at him until finally he stopped and looked her dead in the eyes. "Fine. You think you're ready? You want the truth? Ravenna D'Sombra is a thousand year old vampire. She rules New York's Shadow Courts. She's literally the supernatural Queen of New York, and she wants you because you have a power that hasn't been unlocked yet. She's unaware of the dangers. Something is coming, Casey, it's hungry and it's so evil that it makes women like Ravenna look like they were born into Heaven's Bliss." He took in a deep breath and sighed. "And yes, I'd love some wine, thank you."
