White or Black would interest me! I wondered when they would finally get around to this type of crossover at WoTC.

As with Vrog above, I am certainly interested in the details.


Page turned gents, updates on the prior page 146 I/C :-)

As you can all see, you begin to gather at the gates of Elysium together.


Venice by Night – Tuesday March 25, 1309

Lorenzo Cappelli - The Mausoleum of the Giovanni

She drops the petals which turn to dust before they hit the floor, she stands and smiles, "The Dark Mother would have you enjoy my beauty, know you of her Lorenzo Cappelli?" She walks to the other side of her small room and begins to dress her round bottom facing you, you see her armor and weapons laying on the bed, the juxtaposition between her soft beauty and her deadly blades is eye opening indeed.


Venice by Night – Tuesday March 25, 1309

Lorenzo Cappelli - The Mausoleum of the Giovanni

Lydia looks up, "I said enter Lorenzo Cappelli do not avert your eyes from my form it is beautiful is it not?"

Dominic you assume hears you as he does not respond and the footfalls in the hallway cease.


Venice by Night – Tuesday March 25, 1309

Lorenzo Cappelli - The Mausoleum of the Giovanni

The door opens and you hear Lydia's voice, "Enter Fledgling, enter and tell m what it is our Master wishes from me". As you peer inside you see that Lydia sits in the middle of the room quite naked with her legs crossed and her hands cupped before her holding dead rose petals within them.

Her beauty is undeniable and if your loins could so be moved again no doubt they would be...

Before you can fully enter you hear a voice from down the hall that of your brother, "Lorenzo, Lorenzo where are you?"

Xing Shi – Just Outside Narses Court

"...and by so doing we hope to move our own pawns into the positions his own now inhabits within our realm".

Valdemar retorts, "And how would that benefit us? I certainly have brethren who could assist you in this but to what end?"

Lanzo smiles, "That is just it isn't it. I would need to know what you would want in order to determine whether this would be a fruitful bargain for both sides".

Valdemar nods, "I will consider it Lanzo and get back to you."

Lanzo smiles, "Do so soon, you are not the only group here with such contacts Magister".

Lanzo walks away from the Lasombra and heads towards the Brujah and the Salubri.


Onfroi:
If you wish to switch to listen to another conversation let me know...


Venice by Night – Tuesday March 25, 1309

Bagrat - The Dark Canals of Venice

The Gondola continues to move along towards Elysium as the conversation continues.

ST Shadow ONLY:
Invade the Mind 11d10 ⇒ (6, 5, 3, 7, 1, 9, 1, 9, 6, 7, 3) = 57

Vykos presses, "May have or did?"

Talisman looks at Vykos and stares, "You wish to met with Sadir? If so say so, you are as bad as the serpents with your innuendo Tzimisce".

Vykos' face contorts in barely contained rage, "How dare you?"

Talisman stares back and responds with a detachment that is incredible to behold, "I dare because you are beneath me Myca. You are a gnat to a Lion, I suggest you not press me lest my paws stomp you into the dirt. If you wish to meet with the Serpent I will arrange it".

Vykos pauses and focuses concentrating on Talisman.

ST Shadow ONLY:
Invade the Mind 9d10 ⇒ (1, 10, 5, 10, 7, 3, 3, 6, 2) = 47

Vykos grins, "You wish to protect him and plan on warning him of my interest do you".

Talisman snarls...

ST Shadow ONLY:
Psychic Assault Attack 8d10 ⇒ (5, 5, 10, 4, 2, 4, 2, 4) = 36 - Resist 8d10 ⇒ (8, 7, 9, 2, 7, 6, 7, 5) = 51

Vykos takes a step back and gasps, "How..."

Talisman smiles, "Do you wish to push this further Tzimisce?"

Vykos scowls and threatens Talisman, "Keep your secrets fool and keep out of my mind else I do something to you you will not be able to undo".

Talisman's skin moves of its own accord his appearance flickering he laughs, "And what might that be?"

Vykos less sure of himself now but brash nonetheless sneers, "My Great GrandSire was the mighty Dracon you would be surprised at what I can do".

Talisman's expression softens and he blinks, "Indeed, you are are you not. I apologize for what has happened here between us Vykos. Let us forget it ever took place".

Vykos does not respond and turns to look forward and scowl at the Gondola driver who wisely did not turn around for this entire exchange.

Make a Perception+Empathy check DC 8.


Venice by Night – Tuesday March 25, 1309

Alessandro Khadaji - A Brothel

The two men look at each other and then back at you, Mario speaks, "A costly endeavour my Lord but you are a good payor and we know you are good for it. It will be done".

Maurizio twitches his lips seeming to be confused, b]"Pray indulge me Signore, but if you own this place will you not know who goes in and out already? How am I to know what they would leave and take or does this not matter to you?"[/b] His eyes seem wide as he slowly contemplates the task at hand.


Venice by Night – Tuesday March 25, 1309

Just Outside Prince Narses Court

Andrew the Hardy, Ranerius Bernerius

Cantor nods whether as force of habit or agreement with what you have both said he does not clarify. "I understand that some Clans enforce a partial blood bond, some a full bond and others none at all. I suppose this may also vary by individual Sire but what is not clear is how they break or fade away.

If a Childe is to be freed should not his bonds be broken?

If a Chile is fully bonded and commits a villainous act is that Sire not one with much greater control over the actions of that Childe than one who only gave their Childe a single draught to start them upon the path of this Long Night and thus more culpable for the actions of said Childe?"

Vitaliano

Alexander shrugs turns to you, "He will arrive when he chooses to then. An interesting debate to be had here Fledgling let us join it".

Vitalian da Riva, Andrew the Hardy, Ranerius Bernerius

The elder Ventrue arm in arm with the Fledgling Malkavian Vitaliano approaches your group.

Alexander smiles, "You raise most interesting points Gangrel, your Sire chose you well. What do these others younglings think of that last statement?" He asks this of Andrew and Raerius point blank, his mere presence compelling you to answer his inquiry.


Xing:
Note that Andrew glanced your way and nodded... Also note that you can't speak out loud right now! At least until Lanzo says so... :-)


Venice by Night – Tuesday March 25, 1309

Just Outside Prince Narses Court - New Arrivals

This Post Is To Keep All Players Outside Of Elysium Abreast Of Who Is Arriving Should You Wish To Interact With Or Spy On Them.

The Brujah Sir Dunstan along with Lord Bajazet, his Childe Giovanni and the Lasombra Muslim Khadijah Saadeh arrive.

Shortly after them, by mere moments - former outlaws Talon Vandras and Sepio Volusenus the Shadow Pirate arrive - if their Nosferatu ally is with them none of you can see.


Venice by Night – Tuesday March 25, 1309

Giovanni Dal’este & Sir Dunstan - the Dark Canals of Venice

Bajazet turns to stare at you Dunstan and whispers "A strange sight indeed if a former Crusader were to ally with a hero of the Reconquista El Cid himself. I hope that your promise holds true..."

The rest of the trip is quiet and your group finally arrives just outside of Elysum. Quite the crowd is gathering on the docks...


Venice by Night – Tuesday March 25, 1309

Luca Marano – the Dark Streets of Venice

Fear goads yo to react more quickly than this dark creature and the stream of rats anticipated!

Initiative Order - Round 1:
Luca
Adria & Rats

You can either attack the woman or try to flee to the canal and hop on a Gondola (if one is passing by) or run through the dark streets. Your action!


Luca Marano wrote:
** spoiler omitted **

I will be updating your scene today, baby problems last night forced me to cut my updates short.


Venice by Night – Tuesday March 25, 1309

Bagrat - The Dark Streets of Venice just outside of Greetings

You step out into the night with Vykos as you flag down a Gondola a figure walks down the street next to the canal towards you both. Vykos turns to him and smiles, "Ah Talisman, you are a far way from the Inn in which your ilk is staying are you not?"

Talisman shrugs, "So I am".

Vykos motions for you to grab the Gondola Bagrat, "Is this about Milov who I have hear is most unhappy with you?"

Talisman nods in assent, "Indeed, which is in turn tied to this very Inn. Some weeks ago there was a group that I sent here to allow me to find them easily when I arrived in the city. Have you an idea what happened to them?"

Vykos considers for a moment, "I believe Kestral told me that he threw you and a few of your Ghouls out is that what you are referring to?"

Talisman shakes his head, "No another group..."

Vykos shrugs, "You will have to speak with Kestral or the Owner of the Inn as I fear that is all I know. Is one of them the one you promised to Petrankov?"

Talisman nods, "Indeed I had heard they had left the city from other sources but you know, ever trust just one source".

I do indeed replies Vykos as the Gondola driver pulls in to the dock near you Bagrat, "Shall we share a ride?" Vykos asks.

Talisman nods in agreement. He turns to you, "A ghoul? You would bring a Ghoul?"

Vykos smiles, "Not just any ghoul. Tell me, did you meet with the Setites last night?"

Talisman turns to Vykos, "I may have..."

A chance for you to interject if you wish...


Venice by Night – Tuesday March 25, 1309

Xing Shi – Just Outside Narses Court

"You stand in the correct place Fledgling of that you are correct. It is your mouth which it seems, cannot cease prattling that vexes me.

If your Sire were here perhaps he could instruct you in proper etiquette. But for now I will do so, after all it takes a village. [b]"DO BE QUIET UNTIL I INSTRUCT YOU TO SPEAK AGAIN", the words of power rattle from his mouth.

ST Shadow ONLY:
Mesmerize 10d10 ⇒ (8, 6, 4, 2, 6, 5, 4, 2, 7, 2) = 46

He turns back to Valdemar, "As I was saying, there are several fruitful endeavors upon which we can join. One of my Sires rivals has great influence within the Church influence we wish to curb...."

Do you attempt to interrupt him again?


Venice by Night – Tuesday March 25, 1309

Lorenzo Cappelli & Michele Querini & Michael Santo - The Mausoleum of the Giovanni

Lord Benne continues, "Very well then Radek. I shall support you in this endeavor on one condition, you will teach me the basics of your Thaumaturgical powers. In exchange, I shall not only vote for you but I shall lobby on your behalf as well. Do you find this arrangement agreeable?"

Radek considers the options placed before him, "No, I do not. Let me propose a counteroffer. We will exchange magical aptitudes my Thaumaturgy for your Necromancy, after all the powers of my Clan are less widespread than those of yours. You will then lobby for me and for each Clan who sides with me because of your efforts, I shall support you in an endeavor for which I disagree".

Lord Benne raises an eyebrow, "You offer me better terms than I had even initially asked for, why would you do that?"

Radek smiles, "Once these political games are over certain factions of the Tremere will seek me for Final Death regardless of whether I am on this Inner Circle or not. The power to command spirits as spies gives me forewarning that my foes cannot currently combat or detect..."

Lord Benne nods, "I understand. If you wish in the meantime I can lend you the services of my personal bodyguard, is that something you would find agreeable?"

Radek replies, "Yes, it would is it a spirit lie the one I saw earlier?"

Lord Benne shakes his head, "No someone more tangible, Dr. Cappelli, could you please retrieve Lydia Varaschenko from her quarters? Come Radek, we shall draft paperwork to present to the Prince to ensure that both sides are equally duty bound to honor this rather complicated transaction..."

Radek turns to Michael, "Stay here Childe, when we return we shall all head to the Conclave together".

Lorenzo, I assume you go get Lydia?

Michael and Michele are left alone in the foyer...

DISAPPOINTED!

We already know the plot. Move plot move.

Yep a bit of a dud that one.


Luca:
Dice Pools. The points represent actual dice which in this game are all d10's. So you would get 2d10 for Alertness and 3d10 for Wits. Use the dice roller for that pool. Here the target number is 6, every dice roll 6 and over is a success. Every roll 5 and under is a failure.

1's are bothces which remove successes. 10's count twice but only if you are specialized, you need 4 or more dots in something to be specialized so 10's only count once for you on this roll.

Got it? :-) I am getting you out of the gate hot here with some combat so you can see how dice pools work and you can get acquainted with what you will soon become...


Just an FYI, I will be busy all weekend into Monday. My last post will be tomorrow at some point and then I will be back to posting on Monday evening.

That should give some of my wayward Cainites a chance to catch up in their scenes...


Venice by Night – Tuesday March 25, 1309

Luca Marano – the Dark Streets of Venice

As you move to walk around her, her eyes begin to glow a fierce unnatural red color, "I insist!" She raises her hands and from the alleyway dozens of rats come streaming towards you!

Initiative = Roll Wits+Alertness DC 6.

ST Shadow ONLY:
Adria 4d10 ⇒ (7, 5, 4, 4) = 20. Rats 3d10 ⇒ (4, 5, 5) = 14.

I should have mentioned before, but was at a conference... Las Vegas. First time, I didn't gamble!

Also, I should start toting a laptop again so posting should be easier.

Sorry folks! Catching up this weekend.

Taxes due, as well.

I am a little upset that it took a roll to remember what happened in game only a 3 short years and 5,000 posts ago. :-)

Shame...


Venice by Night – Tuesday March 25, 1309

Alessandro Khadaji - A Brothel

Alessandro:
Greetings Inn Saturday March 7th a lifetime ago a Mortal Alessandro approached a certain Gunther Thesing proprietor of that very same Greetings Inn offering assistance to the man as his daughter had been attacked just the night prior, the night Il Corvo met Xing Shi.

As your interaction with Gunther was riddled with misunderstandings as you awaited a Gondola out from the Inn came Talisman and Katriana flanked by two beautiful unnaturally handsome eastern European men. The Inn was closed by order of a Mr. Kestral! This was where you first met what you now know to be Sebastian/Talisman/Beshter/Michael/Gesu, the masquerader Methuselah...

It was Ghost that sent you to the very doors of that Inn claiming that evil dwelled there, its seems that he was indeed correct in his assessment.

Saturday March 7th to refresh your recollection...


Venice by Night – Tuesday March 25, 1309

Xing Shi – Just Outside Narses Court

Nope neither one.

Lanzo scowls at Xing, "If you are done interrupting Fledgling this night may go well!"

The Lasombra stay quiet to see how you will react to Lanzo's admonishment.


Venice by Night – Tuesday March 25, 1309

Giovanni Dal’este & Sir Dunstan - Al Ponte Mocenigo

You both step out of the Al Ponte with Bajazet he pauses at the front of the building seeming to wait for something. Soon enough Khadijah Saadeh joins your party.

Bajazet nods to him and the four of you journey together to a Gondola close by.

Khadijah appears to have a sullen look, Bajazet not once to mince words addresses him, "Is there something bothering you Akhi?"

The Muslim Lasombra nods, "Indeed something is. I have heard from one of my brethren that Narses has requested the presence of a member of your Clan as a possible replacement due to your stubbornness".

Bajazet laughs, "Let him seek one. The Old Man will send no one but me".

Khadijah frowns, "An outsider".

Bajazet snorts, "Talon Vandras has just been brought back into the fold".

Khadijah shakes his head, "No another Rodrigo Diaz..."

Bajazet spits into the water before Khadijah can finish the name, "That cannot be!"

Khadijah sighs, "It may come to pass Bajazet, I suggest you forge alliances in case it does..."

The rest of the Gondola ride is silent.

Unless Giovanni or Dunstan wish to speak that is!


Venice by Night – Tuesday March 25, 1309

Just Outside Prince Narses Court

Andrew the Hardy, Ranerius Bernerius

Cantor shrugs, "If we can interpret them so differently perhaps a more clear definition of what each Law truly entails is a function that this future august body should perform no?"

His eyes widen at your second statement, "Are you saying that Clan Salubri will remain neutral and abstain from voting for other members of the Council?"

Andrew and Rnerius as you are speaking with Cantor you both see Xing Shi approach the Lasombra contingent at the far end of the dock.

You also notice the Malkavian Vitaliano has arrived with the Ventrue Elder Alexander.


Venice by Night – Tuesday March 25, 1309

Luca Marano – the Dark Streets of Venice

Night deepens as you begin to head towards your temporary home. Though you have heard of the troubles of the city as a non-Venetian and non-Noblemen you think nothing of the petty political games of the Venetians and do not worry about moving about on the dark streets and canals of the city. The Khadaji household and the household where you stay are no more than a 15 minute walk and 5 minute Gondola ride apart.

As you close on the canals a woman steps out from an alleyway ahead of you, she is beautiful in appearance though her dress reveals her to be a gypsy.

"Signore' do you wish to have your fortune read?"

Luca Marano – Khadaji Household

Jalel grins at Luca's response, "Very well, my Master Alessandro Khadaji is out for the evening, can you return as the sun sets on the morrow to meet with him regarding this proposal?"


Venice by Night – Tuesday March 25, 1309

Just Outside Prince Narses Court

Andrew the Hardy, Ranerius Bernerius

Cantor nods in agreement, "All fair propositions I would say. I do believe that those who are Progeny though are the property of their Sires who could freely destroy them without consequence should the Sire so choose. At least that is how I would interpret the Fourth Tradition, perhaps I am mistaken though...

Should Religion matter one whit? Is that not a personal choice?"

He then leans in to both of you,

Andrew and Raerius:
"Has the Knight Sir Dunstan arrived yet? I believe that he and his Sire are the Brujah that we should support at the Conclave. My Sire has left up to me alone all such choices but I feel input from others would be useful, truth be told I trust not the judgment of other Elders that they may have long grudges which those such as you have not yet had time to develop. The same I think for this Alessandro of Clan Ventrue".


Venice by Night – Tuesday March 25, 1309

Alessandro Khadaji - A Brothel

The two criminals seem to sense your disappointment and quickly respond.

Maurizio first, "You did not ask about them Signore but we did.

Her entourage does or did consist of her brother Sergei and four men. Three foreigners - Brice, Wilhelm and Francois as well as one local man a Michael Santo - a Gondola operator. There were stories of another woman but we did not discover her name and she too seems to have vanished.

Sergei and this Brice and Wilhelm left the city weeks ago and have yet to return. It is not clear why they left, perhaps to pursue this woman you seek? Francois is still here but he is a cagey one and difficult to follow. When we have seen him he has ever been alone or with two men, tall and oddly handsome men of Eastern descent but never with the woman"

Then Mario, "We checked the four places where she is rumored to have stayed. One though we could not enter so she may well be holed up there, a Greetings Inn. An armed man guards the door and he nearly skewered us when we tried to barge past him! He told us a private party was ongoing and to return in one month! I have never seen a man so fast with a blade, discretion was the better part of valor there we both thought..."

Alessandro:
Michael Santo was introduced the previous night as the Childe of the Tremere renegade Radek!

Make an Intelligence+Investigation roll to see what if anything about this information allows you to connect any dots.


Venice by Night – Tuesday March 25, 1309

Just Outside Prince Narses Court - Onfroi

Onfroi:
You note the arrival from the far side of the building of Xing Shi, you did not see her before this and have no idea how she arrived in the island... Her appearance seems to have taken the wind out of the conversation that Lanzo sought to strike up.

Yo also note the arrival of the former Prince Alexander of Paris arriving with the Malkavian Fledgling Vitaliano.


Venice by Night – Tuesday March 25, 1309

Luca Marano – Khadaji Household

Jaleel cocks an eyebrow at you, "Quite an interesting proposal. Captain Menini I fear is in no condition at the moment to negotiate on his own behalf but perhaps the knowledge that a new ship is being commissioned may raise his spirits...

Tell me have you ever built such a ship as large as the trading vessel which the Captain owned prior to the... unfortunate accident that befell his last vessel?"


Venice by Night – Tuesday March 25, 1309

Vitaliano da Riva – Just Outside Prince Narses Court

Alexander smiles, "Not just the face, the greatest practitioners of this power can sculpt bone as well. Tzimisce Elders make truly wonderful creations with this power, things which would weaken the knees of western sensibilities.

Perhaps as we get to trust one another I can bestow my knowledge of this power to you..." He then falls silent and stays silent for the remainder of the trip. The walk, the Gondola ride and the eventual arrival at Narses Court or just outside at any rate.

Many Cainites have already arrived as you and Alexander arrive together.

Several Lasombra including Xing Shi who meet with Lanzo of Clan Ventrue, Lady Jadviga and her Chidle of Clan Ventrue, Andrew and his Sire from Clan Salubri (who is currently interacting with the Brujah), Milov Petrankov and his Childe Cantor, the Toreador Anacillae Rafael with his Childe and Francois with Ranerius. The Brujah Elders Criatas and Selina as well as one standing with them who you do not recognize. Obviously, there are many more yet to arrive...

Alexander looks around and then turns to you, "Do you believe your Sire has arrived yet?"


Venice by Night – Tuesday March 25, 1309

Xing Shi – Just Outside Narses Court

As you approach you hear the tail end of what Lanzo was saying to your fellow Clanmates.

Xing:
Lanzo raises his hands as if he has been struck in a mock tone responds, "You wound me, I already know I shall the chosen one, I was simply seeking to increase rapport with you all as I shall be spending a great deal of time here among you. Certainly not all business conducted here will be Camarilla business..." He let's that suggestion sink in.

Valdemar turns to you Xing, "Ah Fledgling, greetings. Welcome to your second night at Court. Alejandro bade me watch over you this night as he shall be arriving late this evening".

Your appearance appears to have curtailed further discussion by and with the Ventrue Lord.

Greetings.

I will be filling in the vacancy for a Gangrel character. I am inexperienced in this rpg set, but am eager to join in as I heard nothing but great things.

Hopefully the game will meet the great grading it has warranted moving forward as well! :-) Feel free to poke around in the Campaign Info tab a lot of rules for the game in there.

And your first post is up! :-)


Venice by Night – Tuesday March 25, 1309

Luca Marano – Khadaji Household

You stand at the front door of a heretics house, a rich heretic but a heretic nonetheless. If the rumors you were told are true, Captain Menini, a man who has a reputation for being an excellent Captain, is staying here. The man will need a new ship why should you not be the one to build it?

As yu raise your hand to knock on the door you hear footsteps coming up from behind you, "I am Jaleel, the Head of This Household, have you business here?"


Venice by Night – Tuesday March 25, 1309

Giovanni Dal’este & Sir Dunstan - Al Ponte Mocenigo

Bajazet replies, "It is not the Lady I do not trust but her benefactor. Criatas is transparent in his aims. Dark Selina mad. Leeland too much an idealist to act practically. Still, each one is predictable in their own fashion. Once I know what Meridie is beholden to then I can decide whether I would want her to sit beside me on a Council that resolves crisis which span the known world. Do find out for me, won't you my new friend?

Come Giovanni, Dunstan. It is time we go". He stands and walks out into the night, slowly, in case either Fledgling has more to say.


Venice by Night – Tuesday March 25, 1309

Andrew the Hardy & Ranerius Bernerius

Sorry for the confusion, you can't see Onfroi right now... :-)

Cantor responds, "So Ranerius, Andrew, how have you found this process thus far? My Sire asks me to give him my opinion on who he should be seated with a daunting task with so much living history before us is it not?"


Venice by Night – Tuesday March 25, 1309

Xing Shi – Just Outside Narses Court

Xing finds herself out under the stars, when she turns back, the door is blocked by the stuff of shadow and is not inviting. As you round the corner you see over a dozen Cainites arrayed on and near the dock on this isle.

The Gondola drivers are present standing at the edge all seem to focus on light conversation among themselves and do not interact with the Cainites whether out of fear or an instinct that those gathered are predators in the shape of men and women.

You see four of your Can members gathered in a semi-circle speaking with another, the one who tried to leave the night before Lanzo. You also see Andrew still on the docks speaking to two other Cainites.


Venice by Night – Tuesday March 25, 1309

Lorenzo Cappelli & Michele Querini & Michael Santo - The Mausoleum of the Giovanni

Lord Benne smiles, "For those not in the know, Goratrix is one of the Childer of the Clan Founder Tremere and one of the leaders of it's three factions. He currently resides in Paris. For hose who wish to be in the know, it will require information or a boon for me to tell you more than that Fledgling, alliance or no alliance"

Radek nods in agreement with Lord Benne.


Venice by Night – Tuesday March 25, 1309

Vitaliano da Riva – the Winnowing Inn

Alexander chuckles a bit, "A scalpel? A crude tool Childe, the power of Blood can achieve so much more. Observe. You there come hither".

One of the mindless blood dolls heads forth and prostrates himself before Alexander. He begins to touch the man's beautiful skin and it moves!

ST Shadow ONLY:
Fleshcraft 11d10 ⇒ (8, 1, 1, 1, 7, 9, 10, 2, 9, 1, 5) = 54

The movement goes awry, horribly so the man become hideous to behold but then Alexander concentrates and puts him back together again. The man is beautiful still and a few of his so called "birth marks" are gone his skin now unblemished.

"Is such a simple task all you desire Vitaliano? I can show you that to be sure. I think it is time to go now, attend to me as we walk perhaps in the silence of the night you can show me greater ambitions when next you speak..."

He stand and holds out his arm for you to take it. This beautiful, powerful, terrible child terrifies and excites you and you certainly seem to have gained his attention...

I'll give you another chance to post before we move you to Elysium.


Venice by Night – Tuesday March 25, 1309

Finn Garrety – Greetings Inn

"Excellent, I have great faith in you my friend. You shall attend me and no doubt at some point he shall call you forth".

He stands, "Dragan, mind the Inn while I am gone. Come my friend let us be off. It is better to be tardy but not terribly late".

Do you want to mention your nocturnal encounter of the previous night to Vykos before you go?


Venice by Night – Tuesday March 25, 1309

Just Outside Prince Narses Court

Andrew the Hardy, Ranerius Bernerius, Onfroi

Francois continues to speak with Lady Jadviga while Patrizia, her Childe begins to engage Rafael and his Childe several feet away.

The Lasombra continue to stick together watching the other groups interact with one another.

The Brujah entourage and the Salubri in their midst stand still as statues none speaking to the other. From the entrance of the building a Cainite

Onfroi:
Armin
who is unfamiliar to you approaches them.

Onfroi:
"Greetings, I am Armin Brenner of Magdeburg. Am I mistaken that you are Selina of Clan Brujah?"

Selina smiles, "Indeed and this is Criatas of Clan Brujah Neonate, pay proper respects. And this is some Salubri whose name I just can't seem to remember".

Brian frowns at her, "Brian or Sir Brian are fine Armin".

Armin continues, "Is Clan Brujah going to be joining this group?"

Criatas nods, "Yes, if for no other reason than...." he lest the words trail off as he glances at Brian.

Selina smiles, "Than more power than any Brujah has had since the time of Carthage! Multiple Clans and resources at our disposal wonderful is it not Armin?"

Armin half-heartedly shrugs, "I suppose. I am wanted in Magdeburg by a Ventrue Lord or two. Will you both protect me so that I can say what must be said?"

Criatas nods, "I would be delighted to thwart the schemes of Hardestadt and his cronies".

Arminr nods satisfied. Brian turns to Criatas, "So why do you wish to join..." his statement trails off as more new arrivals land.

More Gondolas arrive, these bear Milov Petrankov and his Childe. A second bears Sadir of Clan Setite sailing with the Ventrue Lanzo von Saschan.

The Gangrel Cantor stops and interacts with Ranerius and Andrew while his Sire awaits Sadir. "Well met and good evening gentlemen".

As the Setite disembarks, the Gangrel begins gesturing toward him and speaking in angry tones.

Lanzo shakes his head and moves towards the Lasombra contingent.

Onfroi:
"Greetings Magisters. Can I bend your ears for a moment?"
