(Session began on January 2, 2017)
Group met at the Shop Around The corner to discuss how to gather all the materials and people needed to imprison The Archangel. Using Professor Charles Fisher or Kachina “Deer Dancer” Dyani or others as the assistant or even the main caster.
Alex departed for Arcana Cabana to speak to Veronika Blake. Doug went to the USS Intrepid Museum to do some Angellic work. Janice and Noonien went to the Columbus Circle Black Market, Teri arranged a lunch meeting with Saundra Smythe, and Telloria arranged a lunch meeting with Alleria Windrunner
At Arcana Cabana, Alex met with Veronika, showing her the shopping list. Veronika was baffled by the items and amounts. When she learned of why he needed the items she promised to help get the items required, but not with the ritual itself. Regarding the marble and artisan for the statues, she recommended Joseph Taylor, Assistant Curator at the Museum of Modern Art. Regarding the mermaid scales she said she could obtain some but not as much as Alex needed, that she only knew 3 mermaids in the NYC area and there was no way they could shed that many any time soon. He also obtained a good size of the Hellmouth Vampire Dust.
At the Black Market, Janice and Noonien were confronted by a large man with a huge battle axe on his back and holding an M-60 Machine Gun. He asked them for their entry fee, 1 human baby each, saying The Souleaters were in town. This caused them to withdraw back down the tunnel. The two then ambushed the guard, taking him out immediately and hiding his unconscious body. They then entered the market, where they were able to purchase an entire Unicorn’s tail. One of the dealers did say he could provide them with 5 mermaids, but could not guarantee their survivability or condition, Noonien learning they had been obtained by him for a brothel but the deal fell through, Janice arranging to have them delivered tomorrow to the warehouse the group had obtained to store all their ingredients.
Teri met with Saundra for lunch. Requesting the vial of spittle. Saundra asked a few questions as to why, Teri reassuring her that it would not harm Saundra. Teri and Saundra then had a pleasant lunch together.
Telloria met with Alleria for Lunch, where she immediately asked Alleria for a favor, letting her know that Alleria could use the means to return home. Telloria then explained what was needed from Alleria. Alleria agreed to assist. The group then had a pleasant lunch together.
Following lunch, the group met up at their warehouse to secure the area and discuss their next actions. Sharing information, Janice shared about the Unicorn tail and mermaid delivery, Noonien requesting Teri’s presence upon delivery and sharing the situation at the market. Alex shared about his obtained scales. Teri shared about acquiring the Red Court Spittle, Telloria sharing about Alleria’s participation. Sharing the info about Joseph Taylor, Teri volunteering to make the statues and archway. Doug shared that he obtained one Crystal Heart’s worth of shards but could get no more.
Seeing they could not obtain what was needed to close the portal, Telloria pointed out that the group needed to determine where in NY they created this, and that she and Alleria needed to determine where the Azeroth end of the portal needed to open. The dimensions of the portal were then discussed (the same of The Washington Park Archway), which then caused Janice to contact Odin. Put on hold when asking to speak to him, Janice was put on hold and Odin arrived, knocking on the door and being let in by Teri.
Janice then explained to Odin about the marble requirements. Odin realized what Alex was able to do, and agreed to assist with the ritual if Alex agreed to let him remove all knowledge of the ritual after the ritual was completed. Alex was reticent to accept, Noonien asking for the protection. As the debate continued, Odin told Janice to deal with this and departed. Janice stepped outside, told the Raven about Alex agreeing, and returned to the group. Odin then returned. Alex then agreed, if Odin gave him the knowledge to remove a white court’s demon from a willing white court.
Janice asked about the Jotun hearts and Odin told them of Surtur and Jothe and their links to the mortal realms and where in NYC there were portals to access the two Jotun. Odin also arranged for an alfar smith and the silver supply.
After some debate, an abandoned Subway Station that Alex knew of in The City Beneath The City was agreed upon as where to place the portal. After a long debate between Telloria and Alex about the benefits of Azeroth, the group finally had enough and Noonien, Janice, Teri, Doug, and Paul went off for Noonien to summon Jeannie.
She arrived in a puff of pink smoke, wearing jeans and a t-shirt. Doug told Jeannie, “Ignore the married couple back there” indicating Telloria and Alex, who she then blinked the two of them into being married. At Noonien’s request, Jeannie provided her bottle to him.
Janice found the marriage hysterical, and sang a song about it, causing Noonien to say, “This is the happiest I’ve ever seen you”. Mid argument, Alex left to meet wiht tauriel regarding the heartwood. Janice arranged a meeting with Jessica Devlin regarding the imperial gold needed.
At The Lair, Alex met with Tauriel, who promptly asked him how married life was. Apparently Jeannie had affected everyone but the other members of the group. Alex then asked for the Heartwood, and she said she would see what she could do, but it would be complicated. Tauriel then told him to go home to his wife and apologize. He stopped by to speak to Smauverovax and told him about dealing with Odin. He then went to join Telloria at ‘their’ apartment.
The next morning, Jeannie’s spell having worn off, Telloria and Alex woke up in bed together, and hilarity ensued as there was no memory of their marriage (except the main group). Telloria held a knife at Alex’s throat, telling him to get out. Telloria spotted Jeannie laughing on her nightstand before she disappeared. Jeannie also transmitted the images to the TV of the rest of the group. Alex used his arm to return back to The Lair And ended up giving an explanation to Tauriel.
Later that morning, the group met up at their Warehouse. The origins of the incident came out, and Alex eventually went out for coffee. Shortly after he left, a horn could be heard. A truck was outside, with two men matching the description of the delivery people. The mermaids were shown, in a crowded tank, obviously drugged. Janice paid them and angrily told them to go.
The mermaids were removed from their tank, covered up as their legs appeared, and given help and medical attention. Evidence of physical and sexual abuse was present, as was their doped condition.
An hour later, the first of the mermaids started to respond to her environment. Janice did her best to calm her down, Teri healing them and translating their Greek for the others, as Telloria helped them dress. Places for them to rest were arranged and the water in the tank was cleared as not drugged and safe for the mermaids. The group estimated a weeks worth of shedding from them would provide the scales needed.
