    Grim nodded at Joe, glancing around the place idly. "Weird, hunh? Normally, the food's not bad. What, too much cumin this time?" He smiled at the joke. "Oh, and where's Boffo? Sure as sh*%tin', he don't miss a meal ... not if it's free! Unless the food is that bad!"

    Well, have you updated your sheet? It still shows you as having one mild social and one mild mental (which is fine because you have 5 conviction). I know you got Flustered from last scene so that still stays. How long has Headache been around?


    Crazy Joe responds, "Not funny when yer the one eatin' crap, I tell ya! At least that's how it feels like. The meat they put in their meals have been drastically cut. There's barely any scraps in the meals they're servin' lately! And yeah, Boffo does like ta eat, but no one has heard a peep from 'im for a little while. Hadn't checked in on him sinced the police swept from out from under his usual bridge. Dunno where he's been holed up since."

    Grim raised his hands up. "Now don't go all crazy on me, Joe," chuckling inwardly at the little joke. "I was just asking. No meat, eh? Strange ... mebbe they think vegans last longer on the streets!"

    He glanced around the shelter, then back to Joe. "Well, I got some time, and Boffo's usually good people. Where's some of his other hidey-holes? I know you know where his back-ups are, Joe." At the ****-eyed look Joe started to give him, Grim raised his hands. "I'm not poachin' ... I just want to check on him. Promise."

    Headache is now gone. You now have your Extra Mild Mental Consequence free to use. Maybe something like "Extra Tired" because you're putting in 110% on the circle preparation? But be warned. When you actually try to make those Discipline rolls to control the power, that Extra Tired might be compelled by me to lower your efforts by 2 for at least one roll.

    Sigh, RL keeps interrupting. Ok, time to make the first discipline roll. How much Power do you want to channel on the first try? Remember you can channel up to your Conviction without taking stress, but if you fail yor Discipline roll, ALL the power contibuted thus far in the rituals comes back to you as backlash. Each time segment could be an hour or more of game time, so if you wanted to be totally safe you can just channel one each time and the two of you could reach the 10 required power in 5 time segments.

    Well, I got +5 discipline and conviction, so let's go for 4 shifts of power. Still in my favor, but fast.

    (4d6)[6][2][3][6](17) +5
    Total: 6
    Edit: Dang, could have done 5. Ah well.

    Harry, wanting to test the effectiveness of this new circle, starts off with one shift of power, easily controlling it. "Well, so far so good..." says the warden commander. As you channel for the next time period, sudden there is a knock on the door! "Police! Open up!"

    Cripes! What do you do? You can either let the energies flow off harmlessly or try to finish this off all in one go and only have the police wait a *little* bit. There is no middle ground. Release or get 5 shifts of energy between the two of you. However, that "Extra Tired" is starting to take its toll on you. Your next Discipline roll will be at a -2. How much do you want to contribute, if at all?

    Let's see, I did 4 last time, Harry did 1, that's 5. He should be able to get 3 if I go for 2.

    Amber nods as she gets up and quickly moves to the door making sure to shut and lock the magic room as she leaves. With a deep breath she opens the door a crack and flashes a charming smile, "Yes officers? Can I help you?" She asks trying to give them a good starting impression.

    That is a good question...Damn it, considering current events I'm probably in my magic clothing default outfit which according to my sheet is...

    "a black mini-skirt and a black sleeveless top that exposes her midriff, but covers her cleavage" "She also wears black leather gloves on both hands (see enchanted and focus items). In regards to jewelry she tends to wear very little, just a necklace and earrings. Her ears have a few piercings, two in the normal spots and one up at the top. She also has a belly-button piercing, but doesn't wear it as often as her other pieces of jewelry. " "missions she wears a sports bra"

    So...
    Black mini-skirt, black sleeveless top that exposes midriff, black leather gloves, her ears are pierced, a necklace, belly button ring, sports bra. I'd assume she'd have left the cloak in the magic room.

    Glove description btw:
    Right glove: the glove is meant to look like a normal glove to avoid drawing attention and only people focusing hard on it will notice the tiny magical rune ( rune on tip of pointer finger)

    Left glove: This gloves rune is on the inside palm otherwise the same as the right

    Two officers, one male, one female, appear standing at the door, dressed int he standard police uniforms. "Hello, Ms.Ranoue, we'd like to ask about a vehicle parked out front that atches the description of..."

    It is at that time that there is radio chatter. The male answers the radio. "This is unit 24. Uhh huh. Yeah. We're at the model's place. Should be done in...wait what? Can you repeat? Are you SURE? Alright, ten four, copy that."

    Putting the radio away, he says, "There appears to be a misunderstanding. We will not need to be questioning you after all. Have a good day, Ms. Ranoue."

    As the two officers leave, they look confused. "What was that?" "I dunno. Higher up just said we're barking up the wrong tree..."

    It is about this time that the rest of you get back to Amber's place as well. You all see the police officers walk out.

    "Oh, no problem. Let me know if you need anything!" Amber says waving good bye to the officers with a friendly smile. Once they were gone, she shut the door and went back inside rolling her eyes and mumbling about being stupid pawns.

    Not sure if Joe gave me any more info after my last offer ... did I find out where Boffo hole's up?


    Grim had been walking for a bit, since amazingly enough, Amber's house wasn't right in front of a bus stop. As he neared the house, he slowed as he watched the cops leaving the premises. He kept walking past her house as they pulled away, only going back once they were around the corner.

    "Hey, what kinda party were y'all having while we were gone? And did I miss the nurse's outfit?" He pouted as he waited for her to answer.

    Crazy Joe said to check back with him the next day.


    At this time, Harry also emerges. "I think I've got a better sense of what these...monstrosities are, or at least some of their qualities. What I've learned disturbs me. Physically, they are like ghouls in that they are very strong, and very agile. The main difference is that they appear to spread via a supernatural infection or taint of some sort. If they take a bite out of you, you start slowly turning into one of those creatures over time, probably a few days. From what you've described to me and what the ritual revealed, the victims initially keep full use of their brains, but the hunger they feel for massive amounts of meat eventually turns them into...what you saw. I think that when they lose enough of themselves, they become docile enough to control. At the rate these ghouls can propagate, one can raise a small army within weeks. If someone is indeed doing so, the main issues would be keeping the new ghouls in check, and hiding the army and keeping it fed until the mastermind is ready to attack."

    Brando shows up with Grim, and a Starbucks cup that apparently belonged to some "Zoey" girl

    "Hi. Anyone want some coffee? I stole it from an intern who messed up her stitches. I usually don't drink coffee, but since I might need to stay awake a bit more. It tastes as horrible as I remember..."

    He also throws a can of energy drink into the garbage can. Brando wasn't exactly a good person to pull all-nighters.

    After the explications by Harry are done,

    "Well, we saw two of them so far. One that got killed ,and another ran into the burning warehouse so I guess those two are down. Any chance this infection is gone? Also, how easy was to make the first one? If we eliminate them all could they be repllicated by some other annoying vampire?"

    Grim glanced at Brando with a raised eyebrow. "You don't get out much, do you? No body, no dead. Which means, if the big bad is in hiding, you've got a hungry, infectious beastie running around New Cannes. 28 Days Later, anyone? Twelve Monkeys? Doomsday? Outbreak? Doesn't matter what evil plan Mr. GQ had, if he's not in control, this will be out-of-control in a couple of days."

    Reaching out, he took the coffee Brando offered and took a long sip. "So, I hear Aruba's nice this time of year ..."

    Grim stared at Harry for a long moment, then growled. For a moment, the facade that normally hid his real face slipped, revealing an almost alien visage beneath - bright, angry emerald green cat's eyes looked out from a feline face with a fanged mouth. As quickly as it appeared, it was gone and Grim stood, eyes half-lidded again.

    Sighing, Grim shook his head. "I suppose you'd go someplace where you had a nearly limitless supply that nobody would report ... because they couldn't or because they didn't care.

    Like a homeless shelter."

    "Unless normal animal meat can be used too, in which case I think Aria would call the homeless shelter as impractical. Then, I supposed she'd say you should create a fake buffet service or restaurant so you could order large amounts of meat without suspicion. But of course, you don't ask all your meat from the same place, you'd take about...10%, maybe 20 from each of the main dealers in the town. Not really the same amount from each, as I guess you could just order more of the low-quality meat and the monsters wouldn't care"

    Obviously, he didn't think of all that right now. He tought of the first part, and the last was something he'd do when he couldn't quite resist his primal urges as a Liger. Having a were-form based on your bestial, animal spirit did quite a bit to one's mind. Being a were-something probably did that, but since he was more tightly connect to his other form he assumed he had to deal with it a bit more...

    Grim shrugged his shoulders. "Well, Aria knows more than I do about homeless shelters. I mean, at the one I just visited, folks said there's not as much meat in the food anymore ... and at least one regular is missing. But I'm sure that's coincidence ..."

    He found a seat and sat down. "So somebody gonna call the meat-packing plants?"
