Zhora is very concerned that someone has the ability to easily take away our essence and abilities. She proposes that the pack insert Gwen into the family of mages/warlocks/wise people that we delivered Ulysses to as a defense measure. Most of the pack argues against taking any further aggressive action against Ms. Moses.
RETCON*** Blue Sky is not in town, it’s Sunsphere.
Drishti looks into summoning the bone spirit so we can get some more information. We discuss the details required to actually make the binding to contain the spirit.
The pack minus Patrick and Gwen decide to summon the bone spirit at Widow’s mobile home. We decide we’re going to go in wolf form and hunt on the way there so that we’ll have chiminage when we get there.
The pack hunts on the way over. Everyone contributes to Maleya’s roll (27 dice). As a pack we pull down a monstrous old bear, the hunt is so glorious we all get a point of willpower. We strip some bones from the bear for chiminage and bring some flesh for the ban. We also perform a rite to honor the gift the bear has given us.
We make it to Glory acres trailer park without incident.
On the way to Widow’s trailer we learn that the path of the hurricane has changed. It’s now going to hit us in 8 hours instead of 24. Hurricane Chip for the record.
We strip the carpet out of Widow’s bedroom and Drishti inscribes a circle using some of Zhora’s lipstick.
We agree that in order for the spirit to be unbound Maleya needs to say “You are unbound” in Tagaolog.
The spirit is summoned and is much smaller than it was when it inhabited the Bones. Maleya and Drishti start talking to it.
Carmen summoned the bone spirit, created the locus to power the spirit. And told the demon to bring the fleshy ones to her. We learn that Carmen has also bound the bone spirit’s father. The father honors decadence and dancing. The father was on this side of the gauntlet. The bone spirit is really afraid of it’s father. The father has rode Carmen in the past and might now. Drishti banished the spirit and it went on it’s way. It’s worth noting that Zhora cast loose tongue and sense weakness on it. It’s weakness was that it didn’t like being bound.
Maleya heard Patrick howl in the distance. He was howling that there was trouble at the Beauchamp farm and that he was on his way. He pulled up in the truck and headed out. Patrick tell’s the rest of the pack that the Beauchamp’s are under attack. Patrick has put the guns in a duffel in the back of the truck and has brought Gwen with him. We head towards the B’s.
We pull up to the house and see Anna Leigh on her knees in the front yard with her arms outstretched. Patrick almost runs over Anna Leigh but Boone manages to pull the wheel at the last second. Gwen, Maleya, Zhora in spirit form, and Boone all get out of the car and run to Gwen. Just then Levon runs out from the barn and fires a shotgun into the air.
It’s worth noting that the defenses are totally down. The bottles aren’t working anymore and. The only thing keeping the spirits out is Anna Leigh.
Dristhi tries to talk Gwen into helping Anna Leigh, but she doesn’t know how.
Maleya, Patrick, and Zhora go into the house. They’ve been told that Miss Moses is sick. Jack meets them inside and leads the pack members that went inside into a shack.
The walls of the shack are covered with pictures of a young Ulysses and Miss Moses. They hear chanting and Miss Moses is on the bed thrashing and covered in sweat.
Using two worlds eyes the spirit can see a monster in shadow that is attacking Miss Moses. It’s not a spirit.
Fanny and Fiona are in the room.
In order to attack this thing they would need to cross the gauntlet. Because the portable locus was left back at the hotel the pack can’t cross.
Gwenivere touches Anna Leigh, but can’t help her. Zhora comes out in wolf form trying to get Drishti to come in and look at Miss Moses.
Drishti uses the Witches Moon gift to open a hole to shadow to act as a conduit for speech between sides of the gauntlet.
Suddenly a women with a french access starts speaking through Drishti. Drishti challenges her to a fight, she says that she has no intention of fighting puppets like us.
Carmen says that we know nothing about wrath and that the storm that’s coming is made of wrath.
Um, shit happens.
Gwen taps into the power of the storm and lends her strength to Anna Leigh. An explosion blasts out from Gwen and clears frees Miss Moses from the attack.
We learn from the others that Luke has gone off after Carmen. Maleya picks up Carmen’s scent. and we take off after him.
We follow the scent to the pier, but Luke’s boat is gone.
Patrick hears gunshots off to the SW almost jumps into the water, but realizes that the water holds dangers.
Drishti and Jack call Skinner on the sat phone and arrange to have 2 air boats meet us at the pier.
I kind of hate Skinner and Townsis.
Skinner and Townsis take us on airboats to the southwest where we find Lukes boat. on the way there we start smelling Luke and blood.
As the airboats close with the airboats we see an arm draped over the side of the boat holding a gun and dripping blood.
Townsis and Skinner take Luke’s boat back with Luke for first Aid.
Zhora and Drishti see what looks like a spirit festival off in the distance, we keep heading in that direction.
Many many many alligator get into the water.
The channel opens up into a lagoon, in the middle of the lagoon is an island. On the island is a decrepit old mansion. Maleya smells tobacco and decay coming from the mansion.
The island is the source of the festivities that are happening in shadow.
The island is unnaturally quiet. There are hundreds of alligators on the shore, they’re not moving.
Um, and then other stuff happened.
Malaya shot a path’s worth of alligators. The pack quickly dashed through. Boone and Zhora got snagged but managed to break free.
Zhora has a danger sense feeling about the front door.
The pack tried to break in through the windows and the side of the house. These proved ineffective.
Malaya opened the front door. Front door was trapped with a curse.
Maylay suffered -2 due to a crushing feeling.
To the right there was a room with a bunch of carpets. That were covering a hole in the floor.
There was an alter with candles and a doll that was laughing.
Pack was attacked by Alligator men, that most likely were the stolen mortals.
Pack killed them all,
