Wardens Fourth Edition
Night Quest - Downtime
A look at what happened after Session 21.
Area and Group Notes
Mystic is not at all happy with his new residence being surrounded by water. Shane tries to convince it is the last place any of the others would look and that the owners have abilities that could help locate the others before they locate him.
The Alcatraz Foundation legal staff is reluctant to take up the cause of the 'Alta Verde Protectors.' The matter is presented to the various attorneys that do legal consulting for the Foundation and Karalyn Nicholas agrees to advise on the matter. It is made clear by the Foundation legal staff that on this matter Karalyn will be acting independently and will in no way be representing or acting on behalf of the Alcatraz Foundation.
Mortisha returns to the Wardens headquarters after spending several weeks 'sightseeing' in Northern California.
Karalyn Nicholas, a.k.a. Amethyst (II)
Karalyn takes the basic legal strategy designed by the Alta Verde council and fine tunes it to the American legal system's laws and processes. Der Kampfkoloss, die Kampfmaschine, Kriegstochter, Panzer, der Grüne Ritter and Jagdpanzer would plead 'nolo contendere' for all of charges that have been filed against them in all jurisdictions. A fund, not to exceed $200 million U.S. would be deposited into an account that victims of the defendants alleged crimes could make claims against. The fund would be administered by one of the Radley-Gold group sponsor foundations, who in exchange for legal and administrative fees would process the victims' claims and disperse settlements. The six defendants would be placed under 'house arrest' and remain in the Alta Verde community for the rest of their lives. The Alta Verde council would provide all past, present and future intelligence that it has or gains on the Grand Empire and Sturmwacht to Orion, the FSS and Interpol.
Randy McLeod, a.k.a. Delta-Vee
Randy's search for Mark takes him from the city of angels to the city of sin as the trail leads from Los Angeles to Las Vegas.
Judah Ambrose, a.k.a. Eon (Lazarus)
Lazarus uses his painting as a means to gain insight into his dreams and memories of past. So many things are fuzzy and unclear yet some greater purpose seems to be calling out to or guiding him.
When not painting Lazarus spends his time researching the Grand Empire and finding out all he can on his pursuers.
He also begins devising a cover identity in order to create a legitimate trail of records for himself. He asks the Wardens for assistance in developing this new persona. After careful consideration he chooses to go back to one of his first actual names. Judah Ambrose is one of the first names he can actually recall using and it is long past time for him to rejoin humanity.
Dreams of Katherine
William Rouen, a.k.a. Knight of Saint Michael
William continues his prayer vigils, seeking guidance on the meaning of his visions. With those of the past the meaning is clear, in layman's terms, hindsight is 20/20. The question was who were these individuals that were cloaking their actions from his normal perceptions and why? As for the visions of the future, they had all came to pass. He was destined to watch the Welsh with die before him, but when?
The Knight continues to study the Grand Empire looking for nuances to their activities that can be exploited to take them out. The one clear pattern that keeps emerging is the massive changes in operational procedures since their 'reappearance' in December 1995. The new Grand Empire was definitely more dangerous than the old one.
When he reviews the monitoring of Prime's activities, the Knight finds that the diminutive furry orange lab assistant is totally consumed with manipulating a ball of cosmic energy. The readings that accompany the recordings verify that the lab's shielding is protecting the equipment and personnel outside the lab. There are several gaps in the recordings that show the effect that the experiments are having on the equipment inside the lab. Each time a monitor or other piece of equipment goes out, it is replaced as soon as the cosmic radiations levels in the lab are low enough to permit unshielded maintenance personnel to enter the area. The Knight also notices that Miss Majestic does not visit the lab as often as she use to do.
Getting to Know the Youth?
The Knight talks with Asenblut and Vanenspeer about their 'mission.' He understands very little about the U.S. legal system but does offer to provide any assistance that he can to help.
Thoughts On New Developments
Practice With Father
He also converses with the pair about Die Wächter and Sturmwacht. They say that it is clear that Sturmgräfin had been planning her treacherous plan for quite a while and may have even tried to stage a coup that would have left her in charge of the Alta Verde community. The creation of Sturmwacht as a criminal enterprise may have been her fallback position. It is clear from their recent encounters that Sturmgräfin is trying to eliminate any of the Alta Verde paranormals that leave the valley and she also seems to want some manner of vengeance against the Wardens. It is speculated that when the Wardens volunteered to help Alta Verde and went on the rescue mission at the Kranze Academy, there were more paranormals left in the valley that Sturmgräfin had planned for, thus the unforeseen help of the Wardens blocked her coup.
Talking About the Day
Kore Moorland, a.k.a. Miss Majestic
Kore spends a great deal of time looking in on the wounded girl. When it becomes obvious that normal medical science as well as Lazarus' healing abilities have done all they can for the girl, Kore begins looking into magical means of reviving the girl from her catatonic state. She theorizes that the mystical attack that wounded the girl physically also wounded her psyche. Kore consults with Armstrong and Rhiannon about the girl and her own theory about a mystically damaged psyche. Armstrong and Rhiannon offer some suggestions and a couple of books for Kore to use to continue her research.
Kore also spends some time talking to Shane/Mystic, in the process, she learns of the dual identities sharing the single physical body.
