The evening is off to a less than quiet start as Xavier, a prominent Malkavian,
perishes when his motorcycle explodes in the Arts Exchange parking lot....with
him still on it. With the memory of Jefferson Kent's earlier demise in mind,
some suggest a mad bomber is in our midst.
Mortigan is seen to make a brief appearance gathering the fractious Tremere.
After a extended meeting the sequestered Tremere return forsaking their grudges
and apparently working together. Explanation range from simple threats to
a clan wide blood bonding. Typically, the Tremere are tight lipped about
the whole affair.
The Garou return to issue a heated declaration. Their "Caern stone" has been
stolen from their holy site in Piedmont Park. They insist that Kindred have
done this and swear bloody vengeance if the stone is not returned. Occult
minded Kindred quickly explain that without the stone Piedmont Park's deadly
ward is nullified. Some decide to take advantage of this time of weakness
to "settle the score" with the Garou.
The Gangrel, unhindered by the Tremere, are able to recover Kay Lear's sword
for their own, apparently purely sentimental, reasons. Erik the Gangrel becomes
the sword's bearer, at least for know.
Shards of transcripts, apparently from a translation of an early rendering
of the Book of Nod, begin showing up in the Atlanta area. Many fall into
the hands of clueless, human collectors but some are recovered by the Kindred
community. Strangely enough it is the Malkavians, not the Tremere that devote
the greatest energy and reap the greatest success in the gathering effort.
The Malkavians attribute many reason for zeal most of which concern crayon
and modeling clay. Frustrated Tremere seem unsatisfied with the explanation.
Nosferatu led by Jarvis follow up on the encounters with strange creatures
as reported by Sebastion. For their efforts they find passages leading from
their sewers to the Water Treatment plant. Therein they encounter and do
battle with the monstrosities. One adversary seemed particularly intelligent
and called itself Sludge.
