    Just as an aside, I have not "responded" to Anna and Lillith because it seemed like they were still discussing. But please let me know how/if you want them moved.

    Given Alejandro's reaction, I think it's a safe bet it is either the same plant or the same kind of plant. Not that Karl knows anything about that.

    Oh. I thought we were done. Is there something else for us to do? Honestly Anna's just going to keep searching and looting until she's convinced there's nothing more to find, or she can't do it safely anymore. Ideally she's looking for the mirror but if she can't find it she might as well gather what other stuff she can and return it to people later to garner favor. She'll probably leave about two hours before sunrise before heading off. Does she have her backpack with her, or something to carry stuff in?

    I honestly have nothing else specifically for Anna and Lillith to do. I kinda figured it was a wrap earlier, but everyone kept searching And as a quick hint... The Prince never had the Mirror!!!

    I don't think Anna has a backpack, but there are trash bags and the like. I don't think it would be too hard to rig something together.

    Anna doesnít know who had the mirror, sheís assuming the prince had it since he presumably diablerized estella. Going to RP with Lilith for the time being while we search.

    I'm pretty much good to move on. The dream was a nice touch and a great chance to see a hint of the life Aisling had with Gazren before her embrace.

    Okay, here we go with the beats tally. To spare me from having to write this for individual characters, all characters gain three beats for finishing this Act of the story, which was a very extended scene, as well as a single beat towards each of the shared aspirations (Depose Gorman, gain political power for the coterie, and protect the ghouls). This totals to 1xp and 1 beat straight for each character.

    I am also giving the coterie a shared Status (SF Kindred) OO, for their relationship to the new Prince and their role in removing Gorman.

    Beyond the above:

    -Anna: Anna gains a beat towards her first Aspiration of gaining safety and security, related to everything that happened in the last scene and the gain in status. She gains a beat for convincing Victor to help her with her blood supply plans. Anna gains a beat for killing, and therefore resolving the Tempted condition. Anna gains an extra beat for the shared aspiration of protecting mortal companions in ferrying Bernardo through the Opera House. Therefore, Anna has gained 2 experience points, and is now at 1 beat and 5 xp.

    -Karl: Karl gains a beat for surviving the chase scene against Schultz as part of his aspiration to overthrow and kill The Sheriff (this is separate than the beat I gave Karl for killing the sheriff, note he also already got a beat for damage taken during that fight). Karl gains a beat for killing and therefore resolving the Tempted condition. Karl gains an extra beat for the shared aspiration of protecting mortal companions in ferrying Gabrielle through the Operah house. Karl gains 4 beats and 1 xp total, bringing his new tally to 0 beats and 4 XP.

    -Lillith: Gains a beat for taking significant damage into her right most health boxes. She gains an extra beat towards humiliating the Prince, in so far as she took part in killing him (I don't think we have to resolve this aspiration if you want, I could see Lillith getting a job for Prince D'Agostino in propaganda against Gorman if that's something you are interested in Ladorak). She therefore gains 1 xp and 3 beats for a new total of 4 beats and 1 xp.

    -Aisling: Aisling gains a beat for her dream, in which she (I believe) now knows more about the purpose of Gazren's book. She overall gains 2 beats and 1 xp for a new total of 4 beats and 1xp.


    Please let me know if and how you want to spend XP. Please let me know if you are updating yoru aspirations. I am updating everyone's character boxes now. I will propose new Coterie Aspirations shortly

    EDIT: Note Karl must replace his resolved aspiration of killing Schultz.

    I think I'd agree. She does know a bit more about it now. Plus it opens some new questions for her too.

    I'm going to hold off on spending any XP since she spent time in Torpor, but my immediate goals for spending will be an increase to the Occult skill, a specialization in Crone Lore and some more Cruac and Protean.

    Benno, do you want me to let everyone get a post in before she wakes? Do you want to write it, or am I okay to do it (keeping in mind Bestial x2 condition and post-frenzy).

    Overthrow prince Gorman sub aspiration can go.

    Did Anna receive a beat for getting her mortal relatives and ex fiancťe out of town?

    The third aspiration can go since thatís basically just spending xp. Instead I think we should replace it with: secure her role as a Hound, gain the approval of the new Sheriff and gain a reputation among the city as an effective Hound.

    Xp spend will be one in coil of the wyrm which she is studying under Miho to learn.

    @Erulasto: Yes, go ahead and post now, my IC post pretty much agrees with what you asked.

    @TC: Would you give me a list of your new proposed 3 aspirations? I gave her beats for protecting Daniel for that back with that interlude scene I believe. A coil of the dragon in your chosen mystery is 3 xp. I will subtract this from your character box. Please update your character sheet with the coil "Stir the Beast", page 157.

    Can we narrow Aspiration 1 to " Gain domain and legal control over a mental institution for the purpose of creating a blood farm.", as the rest of the aspiration is basically covered under a group aspiration?

    Sorry for the delay in posting. New resident yesterday + three admissions meant I didn't eat/drink anything other than coffee till I got home late to cook my wife and myself dinner.

    @TC: I have updated Anna's aspirations in her Character Box according to what we discussed, and fleshed out Aspiration 1 a little. Please let me know if this is okay.

    @Daishain: Karl must replace his resolved aspiration of killing Schultz.

    @All: I've updated the Coterie Aspirations, please review as these are additional ways to make beats.

    How many hours left until Dawn? And is there a target that Aisling would more easily be able to access? I donít know if sheíd be likely to just pick a random stranger off the street and kill them, but I also donít think sheíd know where to find someone with ties to Gorman or the Sheriff.

    Maybe Blackstar, but that would end horribly and despite Beastial x2 I canít see her being that stupid.
    Its somewhere after 4am. There's probably about 1.5-2 hours left before dawn depending on how much you want to push it.

    Aisling may not know where to find someone tied to Gorman, but both Anna and Karl are members of the Invictus and would probably know...

    My sincere apologies everyone. To say the last few days have been kicking my butt would be an understatement. On Monday I was at work till after 9pm, and yesterday, before the end of work all I had to eat or drink was a small bowl of cereal we give to patients and a little carton of milk.

    Anyways, my post rate should be improved for the rest of the week!

    Where and how Anna hunts is going to depend on Lilith providing a target for Aisling. Anna might just suck some vitae from whoever she decides to take down. Will let Aisling decide what she wants to do.

    Ok, sounds fair. And sorry again about botching Anna's Covenant. I think I associate Anna and Karl as being from the same background because they are both Mekhets, but of course it is Lillith and Karl who are Invictus members.

    Ah donít worry about it, I attribute it to sleep deprivation. Messes me up too.

    Edit: FYI Anna is going to try to talk Aisling out of attacking another Kindred on the way, to go for a kine instead.

    I don't think Aisling's target needs to be Kindred. I'd venture to say the Beast just wants a bit of come-uppance to someone that the Prince had in their pocket. Even a ghoul or a favoured mortal servant.

    I think, while it's not something Aisling could pull off herself, that finding a target like that would be a politics or status roll, maybe? Knowing who is who in the former Prince's retinue?

    Thatís what Lilith just did and identified someone, but she hasnít told us yet.

    Anna to know of a ghoul or mortal and where to find them?: int + politics:(3d10)[4][6][3](13)

    TC is corect, but unfortunately, Anna's been too isolated with the Ordo Dracul and does not know Invictus politics well enough to think of someone vulnerable who was allied with The Prince.
