Ok, time for night two of this little ordeal of ours. Some events might have changed places as I could not find the order of them happening on the recordings and I am trying to go by the in-game nights not the play nights.
We arrive at the gaming location and do the weekly life update. Although this night was a little different, as one in the group had his birthday the day before. There was a nice meat and cheese tray on the table as well as a tin of mixed nuts. Last time we had played, I was totally unprepared for the game. This time, I had a started on some ideas that could be interesting during the game. The characters all gather at Paul's sire's home via the limousine. (I am starting to not like that choice, later it starts to show how bad of a choice it was.) They talk over the fact that they have not seen their sires for a few nights. (That's me not having them ready.) Then, the choice is made to go back to the office building and investigate the explosion that chased them out of it yesterday. They return to the building to find it intact. They all enter and start back to the office where they had the meeting. They take a quick look around and find little that seems out of place in an office. Most of the group; Paul, Gracey, James, Hannah, and Victoria, head downstairs to see if they can find the source of the explosion. Christian starts to wander the halls on the upper floors to see if he can find anything. (He will not because I have little idea what else would be there). After looking for awhile, he heads back down to the limousine. They find themselves in the basement were they can hear some work being done. They search it out and see a couple of welders repairing a steam line. They sneak by the welders, to look in the area for anything else out of place. They get to the end of the hall with another set of stairs leading up and out. (As marked by the EXIT sign.) James (The one person who has played some V:tM in the past.) tells everyone to be still and quiet. He then activates heightened senses and takes a look around. James notices that a door in the hall seams to be out of place. They all wander down to this door and Paul is the first to barge in. (Paul and James both do a Blood Potency check as they enter, and pass.) They enter to find a storage room with a staked vampire in it along with some boxes. James starts to look over the room and finds some evidence of a fight. Paul calls out to Victoria and Gracey to come take a look at the room. While they make up their minds to come into the room, James has found a few boxes with address on them, taking note of one that is from a residential area in town with a familiar name and a piece of cloth with M M written on it. Victoria enters the room. (She passed the roll.) Looking around she does not see much other then a beat-up staked vampire. Gracey goes to enter the room and starts to run away screaming down the hall, drawing the guards (Err, I mean - welders). (Rolled Failed) Well, James takes off after her, the other two try but aren't quick enough and get caught by the welders. Victoria glares at one of them and commands him to sleep (using dominate, of course). This guard, goes into a dazed state. Paul jumps the other guard, and proceeds to beat the piss out of him. Before he kills the poor guy, Victoria yells to him that they needed to go. (I kept calling them guards during the game, when they were, in fact, the welders from earlier.) They meet up with Christian, James, and Gracey at the limousine and head on out. In the limousine, James tells them about the address and the cloth, so Paul has the driver go to that address. At the apartment complex, James gets out and looks at the buzzer panel. He finds one with the name he thought he knew, M. Manson, and got buzzed in without a word. He goes to the apartment number and checks the door, it's unlocked. He enters the apartment just to have some young lady start screaming at him. With a few quick words, he backs out the door and goes down to the limousine. They head back to their havens, via the limousine and while doing this, they talk about what has happened to them so far.
Ok that's one more night down a few more to go. At this rate, I might get them done before we stop playing vampire. :-) . Still kind of wordy, though. I had hoped to compress more, but still like getting in as much detail as I feel does justice to the game.
