Items in hand, the Group debated their next move, whether to return back to The Library or to return to The Mission to meet with Lady Anonha. Andrea recognized that Sarah, their young friend from The Library, kept looking doe-eyed at House. As the young girl skipped around amongst the group, singing ‘Colors of the Wind’, Cassie looked at the area with her sight, and could swear that Sarah looked like an upright walking Coyote. The group decided to return to The Mission, and repay their debt to Lady Anonna. During the trip back, House complained about being cursed, and young Sarah metioned he was no longer cursed.
Returning to the mission, the group discovered that apparantly there had been an attack on The Mission. Entering inside, they encountered Cameron, holding a ridiculously hugs Gatling gun, while the ghost of Edith Keeler, attended to the injured. Cassie spoke with Cameron, telling her why they were there. Cameron said she would contact Lady Annona, who showed up shortly thereafter, and claimed the items. Lady Annona claimed the items and when the group siad there was nothing else, she vanished. As the group debated about the kobolds or Hades, Sarah chimed in and said the Kobolds would be afraid of the group. Andrea called Sarah pet, and the young girls told her not to clal her that, Andrea swearing the girls eyes flashed briefly as a golden wolves. Eventually, the group resolved to go to Madison Square Garden.
Sarah asked to see Tauriel’s bow, but Tauriel refused, as the group made their way towards Madison Square Garden. Cassie looked at the ruins with her sight, and got the feeling she was looking at a garbage dump. The group looked around, not seeing anything moving. Vlad quaffed his potion of Trap Finding and begn looking around, and finding several traps, guiding the group around them. The lobby stretched off to the elft and right, a bank of elevators stood ebfore them, along with a pair of restrooms and the remnants of several kiosks. Sarah again said Andrea should go first, and Andrea took the elad, heading towards the left. As the progressed, they came upon a ruined stairway flanked by two non-functional escalators, as well as doors inot the arena on their right. Vlad checked the stairs and escalator, seeing that the stairs were impassable and the escalators were heavily trapped, the only passable way up on the very small metal seperator on the escalators. Vlad examined the doors, and found no traps and a lot of dust in front of the door.
Eric boldly opened the doors and rolled inside, gettign a chorus of “Does the rolling help?” Tauriel entered and told the gorup is contained a ruined basketball court. Cassie sensed the ickiness over under the seats to her right, which Sarah confirmed was where they wanted to go. Cassie asked Sarahw aht else she knew and Sarah said she might or might not know. House asked her, and she said “How would I know?” Sarah got…playful, making Andrea dumb for a brief period of time. Sarah said she could help, eventually telling them that Kachina had trapped her in New York, and she would agree only if the gorup agreed to kill Kachina and end her line when they returned. Cassie was strongly against this. Eventually she handed an Indian made necklace wiht a stone arrow head on it. She said it would put Kachina to sleep. Cassie was against this as well. Suddenly a circle of stones appeared around them, Sarah holding Cassie’s staff, a band of music playing from no where, eventually tossing the staff back at Cassie. Sarah then said she could fix Cassie’s problem, briefly swapping Cassie with Andromeda, then brining Cassie back.
Sarah eventually persuaded Cassie to agree. Sarah then snapped her fingers and the group found themselves in the locker room for the Knicks, staring at a tear in space, leaking shadows. Behind them, snarling and barking and throwing fire at an energy barrier, was a glabrezu. Eric made faces at it and raspberried it, the girls all telling him to “Do not taunt the demon”. He asked “why?”, and they said, “It’s tacky”. Eric then bid Sarah farewell and the group passed through into Shadow.
