Double cross

We finally reached the Palm House hotel. It’s ritzy, five-star, super nice joint. We met with Martina and Martin and a few of their friends. They explained that Vlad awakened as a Mage. They said that based on the squad that hit us, that we are clearly disliked by Blackwell. Blackwell is a puppet corporation run by a rival sect of Mages. If Blackwell hates us this much, they probably aren’t going to stop pursuing us. Martina needed to talk to some higher-ups and sent us to a safe house for some more medical attention. When she returned she said that her clan wouldn’t be able to protect us. They couldn’t afford to bring further attention to themselves. We decide to call in our favor with the Vampires and see if there is anything they can do to protect us from the Blackwell Mages. We set up a meeting at a park at night and explained our situation. It’s the same non-descript guy in a dark suit that we dealt with before (when the ghouls attacked us in the mixup). He was surprised. He apparently wasn’t expecting something so serious. He told us he’d check with his boss and get back with us the next night. The next night we again met him in the park. He took us to a stage theater. In the back office we spoke to a guy with corn-rows and red eyes. This guy explained that we aren’t really owed enough of a boon to get the service we need. We inquired about doing some additional task to help us get enough boon to have protection. Vampires and Mages have an understanding. They don’t mess with each others business. Basically, the only way that the Vampires would protect us from the Mages is if we were Vampires. So the most obvious way to get us out of the situation is to turn us into Vampires. We would be in his debt if he turned us. Tracy, Vasili, and Zhenya decided that they would like to get turned. Race refused, owing to his fear of all things related to death and the undead. It’s illegal to kill other Vampires, and it’s illegal to create new vampires. But our friendly Vampire had some rival Vampires he needs to off, and some pesky witch hunters he’d like to take the fall. So we agreed to kill the three rival vampires and the five witch hunters. Only one vampire had real security, the other two rely on secrecy. The strongest vampire lives in a penthouse with ghoul security. The other two live in a service tunnel in the sewers, and an abandoned apartment. We decided to make it look like the fancy vampire killed the other two vampires and that the fancy vampire framed the witch hunters for those kills. Then all the witch hunters and the fancy vampire died and a final brawl. We split the information needed to kill the fancy vampire from the information about framing the witch hunters. Vlad and Vasili took that information to the witch hunters and asked them to help us kill the fancy vampire. Eventually, they agree to help us. Tracy, Race, and Zhenya stake out the witch hunters while Vasili and Vlad do some dirty work. First Vasili and Vlad went to the fancy vampires highrise. They were able to see into the apartment from a nearby building. Vlad puts an aura around himself, which made himself hard to see. He then got telepathic control over a ghoul. At dawn, Vasili, Vlad, and the ghoul went to visit the vampire in the abandoned basement apartment. Vlad directed the controlled ghoul to go murder the basement vampire with the stake. Unfortunately, Vlad didn’t have enough common sense to make the ghoul be stealthy. So the ghoul woke up the vampire by shooting off the lock on the way in. The vampire promptly ripped the throat out of the ghoul. Vlad magic’ed a wound into the vampire. Vasili maimed the vampire in the head, mostly by removing it. They staked him, and then shot him until he got all pulpy. Vasili and Vlad then went to visit the the vampire living in the sewers. Vlad magic’ed him and Vasili cut him with his crazy s-word. He eventually hacked him in half diagonally. They staked him and messed him up good. Later, at the fancy vampires, Vlad got control over a ghoul, found out that there are four more (inclusive). The ghoul disarmed the alarm. Vasili then murdered the first ghould. Vlad got control of the second ghoul. Vasili failed to kill on the first try but still won the encounter. There were two more ghouls remaining. Vasili and Vlad left these, so that the witch hunters had some amount of opposition. Vasili and Vlad met with the witch hunters and Vasili invaded with them while Vlad sniped from the rooftop of that nearby building. They overcome the remaining two ghouls easily. Zhenya, tracy, and Race came up the stairs to ambush the witch hunters. The witch hunters disable the keypad and enter the vampires room. The witch hunters killed the fancy vampire with only a small wound. Then we kikll the witch hunters easily. Woot!

The story so far
Everything we have already forgotten

Detective Dan Spitzer – police contact

Toby Franklin – Wants to buy something from an antique store, but not if all the stuff is stolen. Store is called Annie’s Antiques. It’s on the north side of town. Annie Anderson is owner, can’t find any record of her existing prior to five weeks ago. One document has her lawyers information. His college is made up. Got contact information fro Annie by bribing the lawyer. We advised Toby to not shop there. Case is probably closed.

Mario Jump Carver – Stole from payday loans. Homeless and living on the east side. Vasili contacts his ally in the black market and gets the name of Big George, the middle manager drug lord that Jump bought his crack from. He probably used the money stolen from the payday loans. We go to George’s address on the west side. George said that Mario did something bad and angered the dealers. He “will be taken care of.” We found ot the money he stole is counterfeit. Mario is a homeless crackhead. We met with the employer in an alley to check in. He said that he got the money from a bank. Seems like he wanted to use us to launder it. We tried to rough him up. Vasili bashed his head and the employer was knocked out. We stole his clothes, wallet, file, and pushed his car into a river. We left him from in the alley. On the way out we got attacked by the three guys we recognized from the drug lord’s place that we were torturing Mario. They had crazy speed, strength, and healing. Race says they were ghouls (vampire servants.) We killed them. We mentioned ghouls to Martina, from the neighborhood occult bookstore. She said she will keep her ear to the ground. A clean up crew came and made all the carnage go away. They said that the ghouls were after Mario/The Employer and got confused when Vasili walked out of the alley in his clothes. They owe us a favor for not telling everyone. They say to pass along the info to our Henderson contact at occult bookshop.

James and Teresa Smithe – Their son is missing for a while (4 months). They are desperate to find him. Their son, Walter Smithe, is known to be on the Blackwell payroll. When Race hacked into the Henderson pharmaceuticals employment records, he found out that Walter was in the military in the past. He was discharged he was a paraplegic, injured and crippled in the line of duty. He in in the Henderson payroll as well. He is a sales representative there. Henderson is guardian a location. Vasili and Tracy staked it out. They saw Walter go in the apartment. Vlad, Zhenya, and Race joined them in a second car. In the morning we followed Walter to an industrial park. The parking lot security prevented us from following him in. Tracy, Vasili, and Race went back to the apartment to search it. The industrial park is owned by a plastic molding company that is owned by a company that is owned by Henderson. As Tracy, Vasili, and Race approached the apartment an SUV sped away. We got the tags off the car. It belongs to Blackwell. We searched the computer. Walter spent a lot of money on medical supplies until four months ago when he started working for Henderson. He makes six figures, and has at leas a half a million in his account. We found a secret panel in his apartment, in which he stored ten thousand dollars, a gun, and tactical stuff. We took that. We all hid in the apartment. we knocked out Walter, so we could take him and interrogate him. We got shot and Tracy stopped his bleeding. Right as we started to interrogate him, Vlad gets a call from Martina Tessenopolis telling us to go to the Palm house hotel immediately. It’s super famous. Vlad gets woozy and passes out.

Fred Tazwell – Came to use, middle aged professional representing the owner for Henderson pharmaceuticals. Wants us to investigate the security system at Henderson. Right before we do the security sweep, a guy came and tried to bribe use not to search the security. Tried to kill us at the office, as well as attacking Race and Vasili back at the office. We turned down the bribe. When we spoke to Henderson , the want use to investigate the bribe now in additional to the security check. We are not to contact Fred Tazwell in the future, instead updates should go to Martin and Martina Tessenopolos, owners of the the neighborhood occult bookstore. We did a search on Henderson, they do gene therapy research, pharmaceuticals, and other cutting edge stuff. The guy that came in ad tried to bribe use was part of a privates security firm called Blackwell ??? . Large corporate office in Chicago recently. Race hacks in, sees account numbers, they make a lot of money. They have a lot of resources going overseas and Walter Smithe is on the payroll. The company seems to be interested in Henderson Research and Development. They have a big house and apartment complex. Tracy and vlad investigate the Blackwell address. It’s and apartment complex. We both get beat up, but manage to kill four guys before both passing out in a car. The two remaining bad guys abduct us and strap us to operating tables in the basement. Race, Vasili, and Zheyana saved us by rigging automatic doors to kill people and throwing grenades. Broke into security cameras too. We all survive to play another day.
