(Session began on January 3, 2017)
Discussions continued while administering aid to the mermaids. Discussing the Mage to assist them with casting the spell, Janice and Teri suggested Violet Marten
to which Alex EMPHATICALLY
refused and argued against. Telloria reminded the group that Prince Malchezzar needed to be dealt with before the portal could be implemented. Janice met with Jessica Devlin
to arrange the needed Imperial Gold, while Teri met with Andromeda
to arrange the Amphora and Athame (which Paul then got blessed). Doug arranged for the Holy Water, Alex convinced Noel Howe
to donate the needed white court blood. Everyone then discussed their next move, Janice and Paul pushing for dealing with Prince Malchezzar. After a brief discussion, the group decided to eliminate Malchezzar. Noonien used his contacts through his family in S Meliorare LLC
to see what they could find out.
Noonien discovered that Alice Anguis
had several laboratories under her authority and performing research at Melioaire sites using grants she received from NYU
but we’re all form Melioaire. Further investigation revealed a single laboratory out on Staten Island
, before a safety measure of Noonien’s kicked in, disconnecting him before The Shop
could finish it’s trace of his system. Google Maps search revealed that the lab was a new construction on the several mile fenced in facility that is the S. Melioair HQ.
The group met up later in the afternoon at Telloria’s Apartment, where Noonien shared his information. Teri then shared her knowledge of The Shop
and their location at the Verizon Wireless Store in Manhattan
. Noonien, through his involvement with Miranda Walker
was able to share additional information to the group regarding The Shop. This caused Telloria to exclaim “And Grougal thinks my world is fucked up. What the fuck?” Documentation that Noonien discovered that since Alice died, the facility and its projects was taken over by Jennifer Garcia
as Project Manager, and Dr. Ian Lesko as Project Leader. Noonien and Teri identified Lesko as Nikolai Tesla
Additional research into the HQ facility revealed that it was a roughly 4 mile diameter piece of property. Essentially has its own private exit off the Interstate on Staten Island, as well as an LIRR
station near the entrance to the HQ. Security for the facility, was performed by Browning-Reed, a private security/private military company who has been repeatedly investigated by the Government for actions performed both foreign and domestic, but has been cleared repeatedly due to ‘lack of evidence’. Telloria and Noonien deduced that to provide Fel Magic for the Advent troops weapons and armor, Prince Malchezzar would have to be onsite to make new ones. Janice proposed speaking to Illidan Stormrage
to learn more.
Telloria contacted Illidan and arranged for him to meet them at The Shop Around the Corner
that evening. Meeting with him that evening, Illidan arrived with Carol Anne Freeling
Aka the Gypsy Morph, in tow. A layout of the facility was provided, as was basic security and facility. After providing the information, Illidan and Carol departed.
Telloria wanted a physical examination of the facility. Teri did a fly over at night, counting 6 other buildings including the HQ and the lab. 5 Humvee’s patrolled the perimeter fence. A troop transport arrived and entered the lab the group was interested in, while a semi with Government Plates arrived at a nearby building, and a fork lift began unloading crates into the building. During all this time, someone took notice of Teri and she narrowly dodged a Fel Fireball targeted at her. After a second spell hit , Teri fled And rejoined the group in the nearby landfill. As she arrived, the area around the facility brightened up as spotlights lit up the night and floodlights apparently were turned on.
As the others debated, Janice exited the car and contacted Odin, who pulled her, via rainbow bridge, to Valhalla. There she told Odin about their objective to deal with Prince Malchezzar, she explained their need for a diversionary force. After a discussion involving Odin trying to convince Janice to not seek oblivion after the job is done, Janice returned from Valhalla with a detachment of Einherjar at her command. Shortly thereafter, three black Humvee’s arrived, stopping near the spot where Janice left and arrived. 4 people exited the middle Humvee’s to examine the burn marks from The Bifrost, one pulling out a ‘star trek’ tricorder and scanning the area.
The group attempted to exit Paul’s car stealthily, one of them obviously heard, and the leader of the men in black blew a whistle, causing the men in the other two Humvee’s to exit and scatter. Battle ensued, Paul fighting from inside his car.
Following the battle, the group seized uniforms from their opponents, seized their vehicles, and began racing toward S Melioaire, persued by Odin’s Einherjar. The radio had a voice requesting for id’s and such as Noonien and Janice pretending their radios were being jammed. The gate was opened as the three humvee’s passed through, the spike barrier going back up as the gate was closed behind them. The Einherjar kept the security busy as the three humvee’s continued up the road. Teri And Paul side stopped their vehicles as they approached, as Janice plowed into the building and Noonien plowed into Janice, causing her gun to fire off at Noonien, triggering an alarm in the facility.
They raced up the stairs to the second floor, then went down a hall and through a door onto the catwalk around the ‘factory floor’. The truck that Teri saw was loading up a dozen Advent troops, with Lorsariel (one of the Angels) directing them, and Prince MAlchezzar looking on. Battle ensued
