A Date with [s]Desti[/s] Samantha

PCs - All

NPCs - Rebekka, Sarah Cobbler, Sabine Lafitte, Ramiel Dupre, Radeyah, (Sgt. Baker), Bianca, Heather, Mr. Johnson

Salient Plot Points
  • Leo takes part in a Thaumaturgical ritual so that he can use one of Sarah's magic gadgets as a way to check on a Kindred's generation and whether they are descended from Justicar Walsh
  • Disturbing visions involving Arcadian occur to Leo after Rebekka assumes the Justicar's visage at the culmination of the ritual
  • At Jackson High, Jack (and eventually the remainder of the PCs) meet Sgt. Baker, who commands the fire teams that Mr. Johnson provided for support
  • Rebekka, having assumed the not-exactly-illusory visage of Arcadian during the ritual with Leo, maintains the form as she arrives to the to the meeting place with the other PCs. She also coordinates the movements of the Tremere and Toreador on site
  • Leo and Jocelin look for and find Bianca, who proves less than forthcoming about recent events on the ground, seeming to prefer to give vague, general answers to Leo's questions
  • Samantha herself does not appear at the meeting, but rather her envoy, who identifies herself as Heather of the clan Ventrue
  • After a bit of needling from Heather, Jocelin loses her cool and slices Heather's dress into shreds. Heather then assumes the likeness of Jocelin and handles herself rudely, causing Jocelin to go berserk
  • It takes the combined efforts of Leo, Ramiel, Sabine, Radeyah, and Sarah to finally subdue Jocelin, the deed achieved only after Sarah conjures a stake and drives it into Jocelin's heart
  • The conversation with Heather concludes with Leo arranging to meet at Sammy's mansion at 4 am
  • Rebekka spearheads efforts to wipe the memories of those who witnessed Jocelin's outburst
  • (Menachem exhibits the first signs of hilarious flakiness)
  • Jack assumes the form of an ape to help control Jocelin when the stake is removed from her heart
  • Rebekka reads Jocelin the riot act after she wakes up/calms down
  • Sarah half-apologizes for Rebekka's antics, apologizes for staking Jocelin, and offers her friendship to Jocelin
  • A subdued party returns to report back to Mr. Johnson

Anarch meet-and-greet

PCs - All

NPCs - Uma Hatch, Yuri the Talon, Black Cat, Antoinette DuChamp, Anneke, Radeyah, Mr. Johnson, Rebekka, Sarah, Bianca, Crusher, Rake, Anvil

Salient Plot Points
  • Several new arrivals (Black Cat, Yuri, Uma Hatch, Antoinette DuChamp, Anneke) from LA present themselves to the Prince
  • None of them have any info on Samantha or Heather
  • After presenting themselves, they (minus Anneke and Uma, sent to scout around) reconvene at House of Blues, meeting Bianca there
  • Some heated discussion between Leo and Jocelin ensues concerning the nature of her penance and what she's willing to do to her friends to further the investigation
  • Jocelin arrives At HoB shortly thereafter, and there is some discussion about the situation on the ground and the perceived heavy-handed treatment of her by Leo
  • Three more Brujah (Crusher, Rake, Anvil) meet those already at HoB
  • Crusher and Bianca head to Wal-Mart at Uma's prompting

==========

Appendix A

PCs - Jack, Menachem

NPCs - Uma Hatch, Bianca, Crusher

Salient Plot Points
  • Aided by Anneke's super peepers, Uma finds Jack and Menachem while they are hunting in the French Quarter
  • She attempts to negotiate milder reparation terms for Jocelin and her Masquerade near-breach
  • After failing at this, Uma follows Jack and Menachem to Wal-Mart and calls for some backup
  • Bianca and Crusher arrive and are waiting with Uma when Jack and Menachem finish shopping
  • After further failed negotiations on behalf of Jocelin, Uma flips out and transforms into little Uma Swearingen
  • Uma's tantrum loses steam when she tries to attack Crusher and ends up getting both her hands crushed
  • The Brujah leave with the promise to try to convince others to help with the investigation of Samantha

==========

Appendix B

PCs - Leo

NPCs - Anneke

Salient Plot Points
  • Anneke tracks down Leo, who is monitoring Jocelin's conversation with the other Brujah and Antoinette at HoB from Jocelin's car, parked atop a nearby parking garage
  • Anneke pledges her help to Leo in the investigation and then recites her (short) lineage back to Caine
  • She then tampers with Leo's mind so that he will not reveal her until she permits it
