(Session began at 2PM on December 13)
The group’s discussion regarding the Elfstones, Telloria, and such continued. Noonien got Telloria to admit to never agreeing to helping via The Hellmouth. Alex then pointed out that an immortal being can be used to power a means of opening a portal to Azeroth. As the group discussed why Illidan gave up the Orc warlock, Alex pointed out that it could be a distraction as if Illidan has the Elfstones, he could use them to find the Gypsy Morph and then sacrifice the Morph directly as a guaranteed means of opening The Hellmouth, whereas the Fel magic eating away at the Seal MIGHT
work. The group they discussed the possibility of releasing the stoned Drow via Teri’s capabilities. Noonien pointed out that Cymrial was not necessarily a grateful being so there was no guarantee she would be cooperative to those who released her.
Recalling information shared to the group earlier by Lady Ariel
was that the Fae believed the current host of the Gypsy Morph was the daughter of Damien Thorn (The son of Lucifer) and Lila Crane, who was born in (and lived in for 5 years) a home in Amytiville, New York. The house has been vacant since 1990, the last family living there being the Freeling Family. Comparing names, the group deduced that the youngest daughter, Carol Anne Freeling
, was probably the Gypsy Morph, as she was on Janice’s list of Missing person’s narrowed down from the folder the group recovered from Shayleigh
According to Paul’s information form Missing Persons, her last place of residence was an apartment in 55 Central Park West
. She was a history major at NYU
, worked at [[S. Meliorare]], and was last seen on a date with Joe Stanton
(6 months ago) at the Golden Dragon
Chinese Restaurant. According to the Police Report, Joe met Carol on Match.com and they were on their first date, having arrived separately, and Carol left 20 minutes before Joe, alone.
The group finally left the ‘Drow Enclave’ returning to Central Park
. From there the group made their way to 55 Central Park West. En route, Alex attempted to contact Melissa Alexis
reaching her answering machine. Paul and Telloria entered the building, using their police credentials, learning that the apartment had been cleaned out and sold 2 months ago. Additional checking showed that her belongings had been removed to Police Storage as part of the ongoing investigation. Nothing in the inventory was useable as a material link, what little genetic material had been found was in the possession of Forensics and locked up in One Police Plaza.
Teri then shared that there might be something at the house in Amityville as a link to her. Sharing information she discovered during her last expedition to that house, she mentioned that there was an item there that might have acted as a Soul Prison for Carol Anne, during the events that forced her family to vacate the home and it to remain empty since the 1990s. Teri explained she was reluctant to share this information, “I don’t want to go back there, OK?”
With Teri’s. Information, the group decided to take an expedition to Amityville, NY, in a two car caravan. 6hrs later they arrived in Amityville, and got themselves rooms in a Holiday Inn. A discussion of when to go then ensued including a talk about how removing the television (Soul Prison) or not, as well as Alex’s issues with Telloria’s deal with Illidan Stormrage
At Midnight, Telloria decided to take a walk, Doug noticing her departure. Telloria’s wandering’s took her to a local coffee shop that was open late. Leaving with some coffee, she got the feeling of someone following her but saw no one. Finally someone took a shot with a sniper rifle at Telloria form a nearby rooftop. Doug, having followed his instincts, had been following discreetly behind and was also on the scene, as was Noonien, who had been intrigued by the departure of both. The sniper threw his rifle at Doug to escape and fled down the road, with Doug in pursuit (His resonance detecting the man as a Calabim). Noonien remained with the unconscious Telloria and contacted Paul. Paul alerted the others and they made their way down, Teri arriving first. Janet, Alex, and Paul arrived shortly thereafter, Janice adding her medical knowledge training to helping Telloria. Doug called on Silvermist
and received no answer. Teri then called on Druscillia
, who arrived shortly after a few moments. Doug recovered the Calabim’s Sniper Rifle. Janice identified the gun as one easily disassembled, and the group broke it down to take it with them.The group returned to the hotel before the authorities arrived.
Returning to the hotel, Doug mentioned that the group had now encountered 2 of the 3 diabolical a he had been warned were involved in the search for the stones – a Djinn, a Lillim, and a Calabim, the Djinn being the only one not yet encountered. Telloria’s psychometric reading of the rifle revealed that the three diabolical so one of who was Inarra Carter
had been following the group for the past several days, and that it was probably an attack of opportunity on Telloria.
At 6AM, the group arrived at the House. The group, with a reluctant Teri making their way up to the House. As the group made their way up, Telloria, seeing all the ghosts, had one VERY
large cloud like apparition bellow “GET OUT
” at her which caused her eyes to go wide and she turned around and returned to the car, losing all control of her Human Guise, resuming her true Night Elf form.
Teri promptly joined Telloria in the van while the rest of the group went inside. Approaching the building, Janice did not like the feeling of the place, while Doug sensed it was a STRONG
Demonic tether to Nightmares. Janice broke down the door to the house. In the entry hall was a large knife point first into the floor. A HAllway went off to a kitchen with a stairway to the 2nd floor next to it. ON the gorup’s right was a dining room with a connecting doorway to the kitchen. To the right was a family room, with a 1980’s era Television and sitting across was a perfectly preserved mummified woman in a dress with gray hair sitting in a rocking chair. Janice approached the television, it turning on to a screen of static (Not plugged in), as she passed the corpse. The corpse’s head turned to follow Janice. Doug felt driven to read the corpse, detecting it is somewhat Angellic, having spent time keeping evil entrapped within the building, as well as minimizing the influence of The Horseman of Death (as in The Apocalypse). At this point Loki appeared, trying to convince first Janice, then Noonien, to turn away, only to have Janice detect that it was The House manifesting and trying to stop them. The group explained to the Guardian why they were here at its request and after getting Doug’s word on this, agreed to help everyone. It then asked for Alex to take its hand. She imparted to him the knowledge of how to use the Archangel to power a portal back to Azeroth. Carol Anne Freeling, along with the other 13 possibles are imprisoned on the Hidden Island between Ellis Island and Liberty Island, guarded by the two Angels who fell with Arcabiel.
Doug asked The guardian about Illidan and Alice Anguis
and she told him that Illidan, and Illidan alone, needed to return to Azeroth, that Telloria needed to remain in this world, and that Alice would betray Illidan as it was in her nature.
As they returned to the vehicle, Doug asked Janice about her stealing power form Spring and Autumn, which caused Teri to be surprised and ask “what? Have you totally gone around the bend?” Janice brushed it off and said she would explain it all later.
Alex mentioned that Alice and Illidan were on their way now, and that Alice would betray Illidan. He also proposed getting their assistance in dealing with the Angels on the Island. Doug then revealed to Telloria what The guardian revealed about Telloria and Illidan and their destinies – Illidan’s on Azeroth, Alice to betray Illidan here, and Telloria to remain here.
Alex then said, “We can discuss this with Illidan when he gets here, and what is this about the Fae???” Janice explained about the leaking power form the Ladies and how she had been trying to gather it up. A long and involved discussion regarding Janice’s actions ensued which was derailed by the issues of deals with Illidan. As this was being discussed, several ‘Advent’ troops opened fire on the Van, causing it to explode, damaging everyone. A battle ensued with the group victorious and Telloria and Alex severely injured.

(Extra: The Formulae for the Magical Creation of a Gateway to another Dimension:
The process of powering a portal to another Realm of Existence requires the sacrifice of an Immortal Being of Significant Power. Allowing that such beings will rarely agree to be such a sacrifice, it is therefore necessary to first entrap and bind one before the sacrifice can be made. This requires a Prison of enormous complexity, and such an endeavor should not be undertaken lightly.
The first item required is the Athame to be utilized throughout every aspect of the implementation of the Prison and that of the rest of the ritual. Therefore the Ahtame must be a dagger of Celestial Bronze blessed by the Greek Goddess Hecate and the Egyptian Goddess Heka.
The Prison itself is to be in the form of a Pentagram, created with a specifically created pingere. The Pingere must be mixed in a Cauldron made by both Summer and Winter smiths working in partnership and needs to be combined over a fire lit by Soulfire whose fuel is that of the purest Heartwood from the trees of the Elven Woods of Arborlon. The Pingere is to be combined in a liquid suspension made of melted Imperial Gold drawn from weapons blessed by the Roman God Mars and Roman goddess Minerva. Into the molten Imperial Gold, the following ingredients are to be combined, each held in a separate amphora made by one of Hephestaeus’ blood, one at a time, in fifteen minute intervals:
1 xestēs Spittle of a Red Court Vampire
1 xestēs Blood of a White Court Vampire
1 talent of Black Court Vampire Dust
4 talents of Hellmouth Vampire Dust
1/2 Talent of Dragon Scales
1/2 talent of Mermaid Scales
1 Heart of a Fire Jotun
1 Heart of a Frost Jotun
The crystal remnants of a Celestial Heart
1Egyptian Shu on Nile Papyrus detailing the life and accomplishments of the caster
1 Egyptian Shu on Nile Papyrus detailing the being to be entrapped
Once each component has been combined into the Pingere at its specified time, the mixture must be mixed until the heartwood is expended. The Pingere must then be placed within a bottle of a Free Willed Genie to maintain liquidity.
Once the Pingere is created, a space must be prepared for the Prison, near the archway for the desired portal. This space must be made of purest white marble, smoothed to a reflective sheen and purified with Holy Water blessed by a believer of The White Christ. The portal must also be made of this marble and its sides flanked by marble replica’s of the material form of the being to be sacrificed.
Once the space has been prepared, a pentagram of 8 pous in circumference is to be painted with a brush whose bristles are made from the tail of a Unicorn.The pentagram must point towards Galactic North, and the Archway for the desired portal. At each of the points of the pentagram must be placed items with an affinity to the being to be imprisoned along with corresponding affinity items of the caster.
After these preparations are completed, the Caster must then seal the pentagram with several drops of their own blood, cut from them with the athame. Then the caster may summon the being into the pentagram, where it will be imprisoned until the empowerment stage is reached.
To create the portal, the prison will slowly close upon the being entrapped within, drawing out it power and Magic. When this begins, a conduit is required to transfer the power to the gateway. This process require the participation of a second magus as well as someone familiar with the dimension to which the portal is to be opened to. The conduit is to be woven of the hair of the Four ladies of Faerie, dipped in the purest silver by a smith of the alfar. The participating magus will place the conduit upon the northern point of the pentagram and the center of the bottom of the portal. The native of the dimension to open the portal to will place their hands on the stone of the archway and focus upon their home. During all this the original caster must continue the summoning chant, ensuring the immortal within remains trapped as it’s very being is siphoned off through the conduit to the emerging portal. Once the being within is no more, a permanent portal to the desired dimension will have been established. This process will consume both the conduit and the prison.)
