Grave City: Savannah by Night

The story thus far...

In brief:

Our Heroes awoke after 20-30 years in torpor.

We found ourselves in the basement of a hospital, strapped into some sort of medical machinery. We were immediately attacked by some sort of chitinous rage monster which we dispatched.

Over the next few weeks we acclimated to 2012, founded a haven, defended the haven, took over a gang’s territory and staked their leader, lost the haven, founded a new one.

We explored sites with similar medical equipment to the one we woke up at located at a disused lighthouse and derelict asylum. Both had a mix of sane and monstrous vampires.

We located a tree that appears to serve as a nexus between this world and another, as well as a focal point for some very dark spirits eager to come across. We learned that actually touching the devil tree is not recommended.

We have made overtures to several factions of vampires within the city, as well as continuing our investigation into what happened to us, and what the experiments we were test subjects in were intended to accomplish.

We discovered some sort of highly potent blood and after debating for about 10 minutes, we all took a sip.

In conjunction with the local less-homicidal werewolves, we put down the (apparent) leader of the more-homicidal werewolves.

We opened the evening exchanging notes on what we each individually accomplished during our downtime investigations.

We then met up with Lily at the Pulse to negotiate for her support in our attempt to declare ourselves in charge of the city. She accepted and offered her support, though not without reservation.

After the negotiations we took a quick trip to the nearest locus and stepped into the shadowlands. We met Cloak of Night, and toured the local spirit world.

During our visit, we encountered a bane spirit and a Baelhound, and killed both.

Once we returned to the land of the living, we went to the Haunt and met with Madame Midnight, Madame Black and Mordecai.

The score from the meeting was one outright supporter (Madame Black), and one neutral who still wants in on Domain and Elysium (Madame Midnight).

Kate and Monique retrieved another book regarding the banishment of demons and are studying it for use against the Three.

Learned about a gang of vampires calling themselves the Brood causing havoc in town and set out to deal with them.

We located the first four near an attack site and staked them, interrogated them telepathically and then executed them. Derek also began ghouling the survivor of the attack.

The second group of nine was tracked to their current lair after they burned a bar on the outskirts of town. We likewise killed them all after staking and interrogating them.

We sped home just ahead of the sunrise with plans to finish off the Brood first thing tomorrow night.
