Dresden: Seattle

Let's Get That Band Back Together

The session began with the group enjoying themselves i a local bar known and the CrowBar. Relaxing and listening to the small band that was playing that night, “Positive Dementia”, the group did not know that they were about to get tangled up in a mess.

Eric had stepped away from the group and stumbled upon a girl that was on the brink of tears, the girl that had been singing with the band. The nice guy that he is he inquired into her troubles. She told him that Daniel, the lead guitarist for the band, had just been hauled away by the cops and that she didn’t know what to do. The police had accused him of being part of the vandalism that had been going on at a construction site in town.

Eric went back to meet up with the others and they all tried to console the girl, who was names Sierra as it turned out. The girl did not have the ability to finish her show without Daniel, and the bar owner came over and started yelling about the work ethic of kids these days. The crew decided that the owner had taken his anger a little to far and (Michael) decided to take the matter into his own hands. Inevitably with (Michael) this means that he had to use some magic, and he decided to hex the bar’s television to cause a distraction. With a flash and a loud noise the bar owner shouted an exclamation and left.

The group made plans on where to go from here. Sierra insisted that Daniel had never been like this before, but that he had been getting into some heavier music lately. The trio briefly considered going to the police station, but they decided that they would not be allowed to meet with a prisoner that they didn’t even know this late at night. From this they decided that they would go check out the construction site.

Recalling some info from the local news, the group heads over to the construction located just north of the Pike Place Market. Doing some initial scouting the party did not find anything too out of the ordinary. There were two private security guards that were backed up by security cameras. There had been a fair amount of damage done by vandals though. Wooden timbers had been burned, things had been knocked over and damaged, and cement bags had been cut open and spilled.

Taking note that these damages all seemed like the work of mundane rather than supernatural delinquents what came next was a surprise. The group found themselves under the attack of a blanket wave of emotion, pushing them to destroy the site. (Michael) and (Rachael) fended the suggestion off well enough with their magical training, but Erik was not so lucky. He felt himself moving to go break some equipment, but tapping to is deep reserves of will he pushed the compulsion off.

The noise of a vehicle driving up the road to the site suggested that more danger might be on the way (Rachael took this opportunity to get the heck out of there, she wasn’t going to do Daniel any good if she wound up next to him in a jail cell, or even worse injured in a hospital. (Michael) and Erik decided they needed to stick around though, and get more information.

The vehicle turned out to be a normal SUV that was speeding up the road. Without slowing down the SUV smashed through the chain link fence and smashed into a stack of building materials causing a lot of damage, it seems that the party wasn’t the only target of the psychic assault.

The two guards ran over and started checking on the driver, pulling their guns in the process. One of the guards also pulled out a cell phone, presumably calling the police or an ambulance. The remaining pair had started to wonder if they had made the right choice in sticking around.

A black van pulled into the site shortly after and a young man in a suit got out. he started yelling orders to the security guards. The guards opened up the SUV and carried the driver into the trailer that was close by. (Michael) decided that he didn’t need to leave any evidence of his being around here and hexes the cameras into scrap. This caused an immediate reaction from the young man in the suit who came back out of the trailer to look around.

Erik quickly called upon his powers, transforming himself into the form of a great bull moose. (Michael) climbed onto his back and the pair escaped into the woods. The man in the suit and the security guards were reluctance to follow past the tree line. Picking up (Rachael) on the way back the group safely made it back into town.

(Michael) decided to consult with his teacher on what had happened in the night. Cranky about being woken up in the middle of the night Alibaster told (Michael) that he shouldn’t be getting involved in stuff like this and that he definitely should not be out hexing things willy-nilly.
