Prior to the Spring Break, the cabal met with Nina Chigi. After her show (it was marvelous!) she spoke with them about the threat to her life from the Nephandi. She mentioned that she believed it likely that Ibliss, and several other things, were contained within the pyramid. She appreciated the warning on the threat to her life. Nigan left his card for her, to relay any further information she or her sources would like to share with enemies of Ibliss.
Duing the spring season, Nigan went on a spirit journey around the streets of Toronto and deepened his understanding of the Telurian and the Pyramid. Richard spent some quality time with his library and read a lot. Nyx and Sabine went to Branugurix and learned about Time.
The city was hopping for the Summer solstice! Richard Hobart attended the New Age Festival being hosted in High Park, where he partook of many drugs. He also attended a play. Nyx Phanaeus ….. and lit herself on fire. Nigan Nowife went out of town and attended a sun dance being hosted by Kaga.
At the tail end of the sun dance, a wind spirit found Nigan and carried to him a message from the trombonist at the Winter Theater. A collection of people were burning a girl. He asked the wind spirit to convey the message to the rest of his cabal, and the team assembled at the theater. There, they found a collection of Sidhe who were burning a Pooka girl. ( Eireen ap Fiona, Evan ap Gwydion, Gweneira ap Liam, Morwenna ap Eiluned, Roderick ap Dougal, Tiernan ap Ailil, and Tomas ap Leanhaun, as well as the Mage Mabon ap Modron ) Upon being confronted by the cabal, they explained the Pooka girl was indeed not a human but a Pooka, and also an assassin they had caught when she attacked Gwideon. They had selected the location due to the fact that it was where they had returned to the world originally. Nigan complained vociferously at them for buying into the paradigm of butchering women at the location. Gweneira requested a meeting later to discuss clearing up any misunderstandings.
At the Old Don Jail, the Summer Solstice brought down the gauntlet. Specters from the underworld poured through and mass murdered those within. Of the roughly 200 people in the jail, only 6 survivors made it out alive. One of which was Yongjin Lee, a brand new immortal as of that night. The Technocacy surrounded the facility and deployed (presumably) Void Engineers, who went all Ghostbusters on the Spectres. While the 6 survivors were being whisked away by the Technocrats, Richard and Nyx launched a rescue operation and jail broke Yongjin. Nigan used the shallowing at Old City Hall to cross into the Penumbra, make his way to Old Don Jail, and strengthen the gauntlet there to prevent another incursion. (4 points stronger for 1 story)
It was discovered that Yongjin worked for Tan Ning Yi as a heroin dealer. Richard secured permission from Tan to take Yongjin as an apprentice, without telling him about his employee being an immortal.
At the Royal Alexandra Theater, six people passed through the shallowing by accident and became trapped in the Penumbra. The cabal gathered soup, sandwiches, and blankets. They travelled into the Penumbra from Old City Hall again and delivered the supplies to the trapped people, then showed them through a thinning generated by Nigan with some vague comments of bank holidays and such.
The next morning, on the news, it was discovered that in the subway tunnels at Hogg’s Hollow had been the site of the brutal murder of a teenage girl. Was it the next strike of the Nephandi? Tune in next time to find out!
