Session 6
Points made at a moot

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.

Session 7
Sally Forth to Heal the Wyrm

The Moot gathers and readies for the assault past the Blue gate. The party preps along with the other Garou making the venture. Beowulf’s child Elomina, a healer will be joining the party while Beowulf stays to observe the rituals on this side of the portal.
The group dives into the wyrmhole and falls a day, landing in the same spot the party had been in previously. The gate is opened by Edmond and the Bone Gnawer from the moot, likely trying to recover his lost honour, raced past the gate and into the realm of the wyld, weaver and wyrm. He stumbles back out moments later, his face torn from his head. Ferrus roars with rage and flies into the gate, the garou surging with him.

The other side of the gate is full of vile fomori, they form a large mob between the party and the wyrm, which is writhing on the ceiling. The black ichor is steadily oozing from the flank of the wyrm from where Cereberus pierced it. The garou hit the fomori like a freight train striking a jello mould. The fomori envelop the war party and a mighty melee ensues. The healers of the group prepare a healing circle around the wyrm’s wound. The remainder of the war party creates a defensive ring around the healers and does it’s best to hold the disturbing masses at bay. Fomori of all sizes and mutations surge against the line, leapers dive over the defensive line, the party acquits itself very well and manages to keep themselves alive and contribute to the line. Unfortunately, many of the garou are turned to the other side by the black ichor and strike against their former allies. The line gets thinner and thinner, the healers start to drop as the remainder of the prayer circle works harder to close the wyrm’s wounds. It starts to work, but the healers are dropping like flies now. The war party is a fraction of it’s original size when the wyrm’s injury is sealed. As a mass, the fomori turn and sprint towards the portal to the earth. The party follows, many fomori are slain in the mad rush to the earth but many more are able to get through to the earth. The party gets to the portal and jumps through to reach the Earth. At the last second, the key master, Edmond, turns to see the wyrm’s wound open again and a single drop of the black ichor falling to the ground. The party regroups at Notenoch. Yeisha has an encounter with Trelayne, who seems older again from when the party last saw him. He asks that she bring the party to a mountain in the south to meet Belial, a demon from beyond the red gate.

Session 8
A Refined Monster

The party ventures into the mountains to the south west of Notenoch to meet Belial, as they had been advised to do by Trelayne. The path to the volcano caldera was treacherous but the ascent is made successfully. The party is astounded to find, at the top of the volcano a luscious home. Made from fine marble and gentle columns, a solitary man, clothed in refined and gorgeous clothes is waiting for them with food and water available to sate their terrible hunger and thirst from climbing the steep path up the volcano. Beowulf refuses to indulge but the rest of the party accepts his hospitality.

He explains that he is Belial, a rebel angel cast from heaven for daring to take a stand defending humanity. He followed Lucifer in the red legion and was punished for his sins along with the other fallen. He has a dilemma and the party has need of some services. He would be happy to sign their document if only they would indulge him in a pair of tasks. Firstly, he explains that the rebels angels have fallen into an abyss, held behind the red door at the bottom of the wyrmholes. But, when they leave the place between worlds they need to be concealed within a vessel or God’s fury is made manifest upon them and they twist into monstrous creatures. He needs a vessel and will explain all of the ins and outs of sharing a body with a potential host. Secondly, he needs the party to find and slay his brother Abaddon. While Belial claims that his task in life is to create a better world for mortal man, Abaddon seeks its utter annihilation, further, he has captured a key to the red gate and is prepared to unleash his faction of demons of the abyss to pour across reality and to destroy all of God’s works. He must be pursued and slain in this world, then he must be found in the shadowlands, followed into the malfean realms and destroyed there as well. Belial tells the party that Trelayne would know where Abaddon is and tells them where they can likely find him, at a waterfall under the crescent moon. The party reluctantly agrees to his tasks and returns to Notenoch.

Gilboa delivers an impassioned speech to the people of Notenoch about life in general and asking for a vessel for Belial. His daughters volunteer for the task and he sends them to the volcano with his blessing. The party then prepares to meet Trelayne at the waterfall.

Session 9
An Ally is Corrupted

The party knows that Trelayne is going to be at the waterfall during the next Crescent moon. They lay in wait, Gilboa decides that he will talk to Trelayne, he has his workers extract some of the star metal from the ground in the area in the days leading up to the encounter. Beowulf finds a wyrmhole behind the waterfountain and lies in wait there. Edmond Exelby fetches Ferrus Magnus to help in the ambush. All party members except for Gilboa hide in the area.

Trelayne approaches slowly. Old and whithered, he approaches leaning heavily on a withered wooden cane. He questions Gilboa as to why he is present. Gilboa engages Trelayne in conversation. Trelayne makes a small show of power and Gilboa notices that he ages perceptively when he does. Gilboa begins to try to expose him to the dangers of the power that he has accepted. Trelayne is not receptive to the gentle intervention and when Gilboa mentions that they are opposed to Abaddon, he flips completely out. The party springs their trap on Trelayne to mixed results. CS is rooted to the spot literally, axes and knives stop millimeters from him. Ferrus bursts from the treeline, howling his rage for the night to hear. Trelayne pulls the thong that he keeps Cerberus on from around his neck and throws it at Ferrus. It hits him like a tonne of bricks and he folds around it in mid air. Beowulf and Edmond Exelby high/low Trelayne, tearing the old man apart with their bare hands. The old man collapses into a swarm of snakes that slither into the river. Gilboa rushes to aid Ferrus who is collasped on his front. Gilboa manages to roll him over and notices that one of his arms is empty like a discarded shirt. A black, thickly muscled arm bursts from the hole in his pelt that Cerberus created. Ferrus’ other arm starts to flop, like a eight year old taking off an loose sweater and the other arms bursts from the chest. A quick windmilling motion and the head and torso of a changed Ferrus bursts from his own skin. He quickly attacks the party and after their best efforts, he flees into the night bleeding the black ichor of corruption on the ground like a vile slime trail. Everyone in the party is injured to some degree or another. Beowulf wanders into the woods to call for Elohim. He is surprised to find a pale woman in the woods by the name of Gangrel. However, it is not the Gangrel that he had met before, leading him to wonder who it was that he had copulated with above Enoch. Gangrel offers to help CS’ character and proceeds to do so, pruning him quickly without permanent damage. Beowulf and CS go into the woods to continue their interrogation of Gangrel while Gilboa and Edmond Exelby take Ferrus’ pelt back to his cave. Cerberus falls from the hole in the pelt and Gilboa quickly pockets it. They search the cave and find some prayer bones and scrying materials along with many stones that Ferrus used to sharpen his unbelievably sharp claws.

While Gilboa is searching the cave, Edmond Exelby grows curious, he slips the pelt over his shoulders and slips his arms into the “sleeves”. The pelt closes around him and he launches into a black rage, attacking and mauling Gilboa. CS hears the commotion and returns, neatly impaling Edmond Exelby on a starmetal sword.

The Beowulf pulls Edmond Exelby out of the pelt and begins to administer the last of the healing salve obtained at the henge. The two are still on deaths door when another pale figure makes himself known to the party. He offers to save the two but warns that there is a price for his help and he will only provide that help to one who will accept that cost. Edmond Exelby leaps at the chance but Gilboa is unconscious and unable to respond for himself. Another pale figure steps from the shadows and offers his services even if the receipient is ignorant of the risk.

The party quickly accepts on Gilboa’s behalf and each stranger pours some of their own blood into the mouths of the injured party members. The two party members become ghouls to their new patrons, Edmond Exelby to the immaculate and polite Ventrue, Gilboa to the crafty Set.

Ventrue offers to take posession of the pelt of Ferrus to keep it out of the hands of random elements and those who would misuse it, revealing that he has seen the future and is building a repository for the powerful artifacts that should not be trusted to the world. The party declines his help stating that they’d rather destroy it themselves. He accepts their reasoning but offers his assistance in harbouring this artifact if they ever need the help.

Elohim then arrives, having been summoned by Beowulf earlier. She is devastated by the apparent death of Ferrus, howling into the night. Before long, the waterfall is teeming with weeping, moroseful and enraged garou. Beowulf spills the beans about Abaddon, Trelayne and Ferrus. The drums of war start to sound as a red lightning bolt splits the sky far off to the North East, the direction the shadow beast that was once Ferrus Magnus fled in.

In which the party arrives at the garden of eden and dies, discovering that the afterlife isn’t what it’s cracked up to be.
