A look at what happened behind the scenes during and after Session 12.

Interludes

Interlude 12.901

Game Date: 10/9/2004
Location: San Francisco, California

In the dim red light, a presence lurked. There was a sense of loss. He must be replaced. The hum droned on and in the vat filled with a dark viscous liquid a sinister shape began to take. He would be replaced.

Interlude 12.902

Game Date: 10/18/2004
Location: Unknown

"Frere!"

Matthieu's nose wrinkled at the charnal house smell of blood and chicken shit that accompanied his brother's overly enthusiastic entrance to his private office. He sighs and looks up to see Andre in his full bokor regalia.

"Andre, couldn't this have waited until you had at least cleaned up?"

"Non, the hunter that I told you was after the boy you had us take. The hunter who the Loa says is powerful enough to destroy us. He has released his chien to find this boy."

"I see, and has this 'chien' found the trail yet?"

"Non, it is still searching for the scent."

"Have the Loa said that we are certain to be found yet?"

"Non, there are still chances that the chien won't find the trail."

Matthieu slowly shakes his head, "mon frere, you have always been too cautious. This boy can be a great resource to us, if we can just break him. I will not let him go until, we have no other choice. Still there are precautions we can take. Go clean yourself up, and than follow back along his trail and do what you can to spoil it. Alter records, cloud the minds of those who may have seen him."

Grudgingly, Andre nods his head. "Oui, Matthieu, I will do these things, but I warn you frere, this risk is too great."

Matthieu says nothing as Andre leaves. Non, Andre, if we are to ever be more than a bunch of swamp rats preying on the highways around here, we must have an alliance with the Empire. Unfortunately, if I am not to give them you to seal our bargain, we must have the boy to give them...

Interlude 12.903

Game Date: 10/20/2004
Location: San Francisco, California

The sister looked at the back of the coven-leader. She saw the tension, no resolve, that steeled her Mistress. The sister had never seen her like this and knew that she had been called for a special task.

Cara turned and faced the sister.

"The brothers know that he is here. We must make a move that may reveal us but we cannot chance that they contact him. Their having influence over him would be the end of us."

"Yes, Mistress."

"The one who is following the knight must be banished from this world. There needs to be no trace of our involvement." Cara paused to let the sister realize the significance of her statement, then she continued, "I charge you with this task."

"Yes, Mistress. I will not fail you." answered the sister before she turned and left.

The choice had been made and action taken, Cara wondered if she had chosen the correct course.

Interlude 12.904

Game Date: 10/25/2004
Location: San Francisco, California

The High Lord knew this was a gamble, Doctor Johnson's serum was only a preliminary sample and the results were highly unpredictable. The loss of the doctor and his labs had almost cost him dearly. Now he stood to gain much if his plan was approved.

The High Lord turned his attention back to the video screens and watched intently as Grand Lord Suden and Grand Lord Norden reviewed his proposal.

Interlude 12.905

Game Date: 11/6/2004
Location: San Francisco, California

In the dim red light, a presence lurked. There was a sense of loss. He must be replaced. The hum droned on and in the vat filled with a now clear watery liquid a sinister shape laid. Fully formed but not yet awake. He would be replaced.

Interlude 12.906

Game Date: 11/10/2004
Location: San Francisco, California

It had been over a week since Tancred had reported in and the Father was worried.

The brothers that had looked for Tancred had found no trace of him. The findings had also turned up no sign of the sisters involvement in Tancred's disappearance.

The Father shook his head. Had he misjudged the knight, had the destiny prophecy been misinterpreted. They said that the knight's coming would bring the struggles to an end. One's death could end one's struggles. Instead of their salvation, could the knight instead be the end of them all.

The Father turned his head skyward and wondered what to do. Should he call in the dissenter? What would Edward and his acolytes do?

Interlude 12.907

Game Date: 11/13/2004
Location: San Francisco, California

The sensor tech's luck had not been good. No clear opportunities had presented themselves to gather more readings on the girl with a companion aura, the small orange furry creature who would make a good energy source nor the warrior of the old lines. He was however gaining a sense of the world that was outside. Once again it was an age of power and many wielders once again walked the world.

Interlude 12.908

Game Date: 11/20/2004
Location: San Francisco, California

The aide entered the High Lord's office. His lordship sat at his computer reviewing reports. The aide cleared his throat and the High Lord looked up from his screen.

"Your lordship, the initial tests of the serum have had a success rate of over 45% when administered to Alpha class subjects."

The High Lord nodded in acknowledgment before commenting, "Excellent, surely this will gain the go ahead for my project."

"Yes, your lordship. Grand Lord Suden and Grand Lord Norden have given the go ahead, once suitable subjects are available."

A shadow passed across the High Lord's face as he waved his aide to leave.

His aide did not go far, for he knew that his lordship would soon call to task him with finding a stress reliever. He did not like his lordship's excesses, but at least it gave his lordship's rages a different target than him.

Interlude 12.909

Game Date: 12/4/2004
Location: San Francisco, California

In the dim red light, a presence lurked. There was a sense of loss. He must be replaced. The hum had stopped only to be replaced with a strange metallic chiming. In the vat, a sinister shape laid, slowly being encased in an unearthly cocoon. He would be replaced.

Interlude 12.91

Game Date: 12/12/2004
Location: San Francisco, California

The sensor tech was upset that he had not found them sooner. There were signals, a great quantity of them. They did not use the standard waves, so he had to modify one of the consoles to pick them up. Most were simple transmissions with visual and aural data but there were some that monitored signals from the standard waves. He had picked up some feedback from the end station and found it to be the station where the wielders of this area resided.

Interlude 12.911

Game Date: 12/15/2004
Location: San Francisco, California

The aide walked with a hop in his step as he entered the High Lord's office. His lordship would have a very happy new year, he thought to himself, as the High Lord looked up from his computer screen.

"Your lordship, excellent news. Grand Lord Suden campaign has been highly successful and a large number of Alpha class subjects have been secured."

The High Lord only spoke two words, "how long?"

"Six to eight weeks, your lordship."

The High Lord nodded and waved for his aide to leave.

As he turned to face the window, he smiled. It would truly be a happy new year for the end of the Wardens was near.

Interlude 12.912

Game Date: 12/25/2004
Location: San Francisco, California

Cara stared into the night sky contemplating the dilemma that she now faced.

The old man had made the call and the answer had come, the dissenter and his band were on their way.

Cara knew that it would take time before their arrival but she had to plan. Time lost now not planning could later lead to the end of the sisters. Could she trust the knight? Would he trust her? Her gaze focused on the moon and the silent sister seemed to wink at her. She knew what she must do.

Cara reached out with her mind and called for a sister to come to her.
