The party goes looking for Edmond, out in the woods with Fiana. Yeisha hasn’t been the same since the last session. Beowulf does a less good job than he normally does, but the party does manage to find a henge in the woods. A crystal clear body of water sits in the middle of the clearimg. The moon hangs high in the sky sky. Beowulf notices a rustling sound in the woods and ventures into the underbrush with the rest of the party oblivious. Two figures are encirlcing the henge. Beowulf watches as they circle and waits until they strike against the party. The first figure bursts from the woods and is beaten to the ground by beowulf. He manages to push the garou he is fighting into the water in the middle of the henge. It begins to bubble and froth as the evil garou melts under it’s cleansing effect. He strikes and strikes and strikes with the blade that he was gifted by Gangrel, it is shockingly effective against the garou and he manages to kill one of the moon beasts. The other succombs to wounds inflicted by the rest of the party, but not before howling into the night. The sound of returning howls echoes back to the party as they see the trees around them being pushed this way and that by at least 4 other of the vile beasts. Fianna and Edmond Exelby overhear the howls, Fianna‘s home is not far from the henge and then run to see hwa the commotion is. Yeisha invokes the name of Abdiel who appears, resplendant in his golden armour, bearing his flaming sword. The angel arrives just as the corrupted werewolves break into the clearing of the henge.
Abdiel catches the first one by the neck and his beautific purity scorches the foul beast, killing it instantly. A melee ensues as Fianna and Edmond Exelby arrive. Fianna is torn apart by one of the garou and Gilboa is injured but the party is victorious in the end. Fianna is carried to the sacred pond and begins to heal while Abdiel takes Yeisha into the woods to speak to her. Yeisha returns to the party and shares information that a tooth of lucifer is loosed onto the world. It appears to be what has pierced the wyrm leading to its’ corruption.
Fianna has recovered sufficiently and howls into the night. Almost immediately there is a chorus of howls in the night. Shortly, the clearing is filled with many Garou. Each of the tribes is represented and a Moot, a gathering of the tribes begins.
The moot begins with each of the party members receiving a sponsor to speak. Yeisha starts off with the Stargazers and announces the wyrm’s injury, and how it happened. The gathering seems doubtful of the truth of this. The Spiral Dancers get in the circle with Gilboa, sponsored by the Shadowlords. He clearly spells out the history to this point and the Spiral Dancers argue their innocence, it is a close social battle, but Gilboa wins out.
Beowulf enters have circle with the patriarch of the Bone Gnawers and howls his rage. It is a truly impressive howl. His sponsor, Elohim, is impressed, as are the other gathered garou. The Bone Gnawer howls back, maybe he sensed the crowd turning away from him, but his howl is a pitiful moan rather than a proud howl. The party has won the moot over, Edmond enters the circle and puts forward a plan of attack. The garou agree, the wyrm must be inspected.
