Heirs of Atlantis

Late July

Late July

Harold is strapped to a table, while Isaac, Jayce, and Solomon are separated into rooms. Harold is strapped down with multiple straps, chin/head, plasticy thing in mouth.

Harold tries to escape, fails.
Harold attempts to cast a fate spell to help (fails), and notices he cannot feel his source of magic. It creeps him out, and he spends a willpower to attempt to escape again.

“Mr. Thomas.. please don’t do that again.”

insert Charlie Brown’s Teacher’s voice

A doctor walks into each of our rooms (Isaac, Jayce, Solomon) questioned us about the day’s events.

(Wits+Occult) for those with mind or prime active.
Jayce and Isaac each have 3 succ.

The doctor has some spells active. One or more mind spells, prime, and space. {Prime Sight, Magic Shield, Prime occulation}

Two orderies come in to hold Harold and a hypo needle is applied to sedate him.

Dr. mattingly is kept under watch. The half twin stabilized but unlikely to last the night. The Hiarch has been notified. (One of five hidden people)

1.5 – 2 hours go by. Orderlies come in “Your presence is wanted this way…”

We are now together

Tall imposing figure in a dark black robe with a symbol of mastigos. The figure nods to us and then motions toward a door then enters the room, pauses, does a head nod, then we follow into the room.

In the room is the one left over twin hooked up to medical equipment. Entwined wood/snakes along both arms. And a giant leech on the chest of the figure. Someone standing in the background (other than the mastigos). The feint sound of a heartbeat drumbeat. A smell of primal crispness and acidic death and decay.

The hiarch reaches out a gloved hand (silver color). The guy on the bed opens his eyes and looks around then starts to scream. The hand waves again and it stops. The twin has a look of eternal pain upon him.

“What questions do you have for him before I begin my interrogation?”

“Why did they attack us?”

“You were attacked because you were holding the key.”

“The girl?”

“Yes”

“Who do you work for?”

…. “-

“What is she the key to?”

“Don’t know, we were just told to grab her.”

“Should we expect more coming after us?”

“Legions..” the body shakes and twitches. “There are a few more groups.”

“Do they have the same information that you do?”

“By now I’m sure.”

“What was that cauldron?”

{some word that sounds like a call of chutulu ancient god name}

“What did you want with the doctor?”

“Her knowledge and her sacrifice.”

“Did you get any of her knowledge.”

“Of course we did, so did it.”

“Given that it is at the bottom of the ocean…”

“That is one location… it probably has been moved by now.”

“Do you know when the next time .. or next group that will attack us?”
{No.}

“What is your group called, and what is its goals?”

“Serpents of Eden, inline with the seers of the throne but we are better than them.”

“Is there any link between you and the denarians.”

he goes to answer and his whole body shutters.

“Where is the person you work for?” “I have no idea.”

“Where is your contact in the organization, and who is it?”
“We already killed him.”

“What does your organization fear the most?” “We don’t fear anything.”

“Are you the bearer of one of the coins?” “no.”
“Do you know any of the bearers?” “yes.”
“Where can we go…” “Hell”

…{soul crafted}

Soul crafting we think is something like a legacy.. and by the tone
of his voice is referring to left handed or unique legacies.

The hiarch starts asking questions of his legacy. He was part of twins
that rebound their souls together. In that fusing they were two that
became one that became two.

More questions about attaintments…

Then an odd question “Where is the chalice and rod?”
Answer: “55 24”

He asks about what rotes he has {….}
If he has stashes of stuff {….}
locations are listed. One is a swiss safe deposit box with a 14 digit code. (given)

“Do you have any further questions?”

“Do you have any suggestions?”
{Funny head quirk}

“Does who you work for know you are answering these questions.”
“No”
“Not a chance in hell.” {hiarch}

“We’re done” and nods to the guy in the corner, then the twin flatlines.
“I expect you all to be there tomorrow.” {he leaves}

We ask about Harold and go see the doctor.
Harold is awake and is as sane as he was before paradox.

Jayce calls Victor and keeps him up to date.

Harold is given a business card “Dr. Diane Brackston.”

At the house.. the girl wakes up.
“I’m hungry.”
Victor gets her some food.
Brownstone grumbles something about “the spirits in the area have been swept clear”
(in spirit)

We decide to take the tram home.
A few stops from home, we notice.. we’re the only ones in this car.
People are coming from forward and back (red colored group, blue colored group) but are in separate cars.

Isaac attempts to fuse both doors on each side shut. (Trying to shut them out of our car) The spell unravels due to disbelief from sleepers. Harold puts up time armor. We stand close the doors, with solomon standing in front of the two of them. isaac’s phone starts to ring. (He mutes it) Solomon’s phone goes off. The gang members look over at the three white boys. Harold says “Hi, we’re just leaving.” Solomon says “Talk later” and goes to hang up.
