Hawkes Bay Vampire

Vampire Chronicle 3 (GM)

The world is descending into darkness, and most remain blissfully ignorant of this fact. A select few have seen the rise of something terrible, the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse, the very reason the world crashed back in the early 2000’s. These same few have seen the fall of one of the oldest beings the world has ever known.

It is they who see their world change. It changes quickly too. For those where the turning of the sun is but a blink of an eye, fifteen years has flown by.

Society is grim. The privatization of military, police and the like has been devastating on the local populations. Suddenly, the only protection on the streets was if you could afford to pay for it. The rich grew richer, and safer, and the poor grew poorer.

Corporations began to take over local governance and legislation began to change. Soon, the Corporations were leading countries with but a few well placed words and large amounts of money. Politics was all but lost amidst the corruption.

It was then, in 2291, that laws were changed. Supernaturals were denied the rights they had fought so hard for and were granted in 2262, only twenty nine years later. They became a virus. Legally a virus. And the cure was extermination. Anybody with ties to anything supernatural was hunted down, tortured for information and then killed, lest the risk of infection was passed on.

Vampires, denied easy access to food, were forced to fend for themselves and feed on humans. This led to widespread fear and loathing. Extremists were finding it easier to get their agendas across and a curfew was enforced. Factories were destroyed, homes ruined, businesses taken down or assimilated. Anything relating to the supply of blood was crushed under foot.

Mages, werewolves and fairies had a slightly easier time as they could hide in plain sight, go out during the day, eat food humans could. Even so, detection has become commonplace, and while it can be fooled now, it is getting more accurate and harder to bypass.

The Kingdom, set up years earlier as an extremist group of vampires, has seen a massive increase in popularity. They grew so big, and so fast that they were forced to leave the main centres and find a haven of their own. Sanctuary. A land surrounded by enemies on all sides, but carefully protected by sheer numbers and the threat vampires pose. Sanctuary is a mountain base, home to over 50,000 vampires at last estimate. Safe they may be there, trapped they are as well, unable to come and go easily.

The Corporations are so corrupt and so powerful now that the only thing that can endanger them, is themselves. Groups calling themselves runners have become commonplace as corporate espionage has become the norm. Runners come from all backgrounds, human, vampire, werewolf, mage and fairy. All have their uses and all get the same treatment. They are paid well and are publicly denounced. They life and die in the shadows, never for long.

A select group is more famous than most. Frank Tepesko, former political leader is under great pressure to join Sanctuary as one of the Council and help decide the fate of vampirekind. Ethan Harper has somehow managed to not only avoid the purge of supernaturals, but has flourished at Xenith and is instrumental in the success of the company with his eye for detail. Talia has forced her way into the public consciousness as reason vampires survive as they do. Her knowledge and care of those newly turned has ensured many are not making mistakes that has cost others their lives and sent them to final death. Kaleb Marcelos has turned his passion into something terrifying. The fighting scene is now completely underground. There is no second chance for somebody as all fights are to the death. Kaleb has reigned supreme in every bout he has fought. Of late, his bouts are less frequent, but he is starting to scout talent instead.

These beings are considered a high priority, but the last they were seen by the general public was in 2286. Since then, their movements are tracked as they can be, but they have evaded capture. Xenith is constantly under attack from corporate espionage, but nothing is ever traced back to them.

Where does their story pick up now?

If I have to do the talking we are fucked

So we reported what we saw to Xenith Brother and got another location to investigate. Some city Council workers were there and Frank totally fucked up his mind games which meant a simple trip down a ladder took most of the night. I nearly bluffed the guy into thinking we should be there but for some reason he didn’t quite believe me. Then Talia she with the blessed tits tried to knock out one of the council workers just to give him an egg on his head and make him a bit more angry. Ohh well eventually we found something down a couple of levels we shall see what it is. I feel a bit of a scrap coming on…

Fucking werewolf

So we are outside the cannery then things go black…

as i come to and pick myself up i see a werewolf, it would appear i just got knocked the fuck out,
OUCH. I see Kaleb jump into action and realize how big this thing is, after we subdue the beast i take a breath so to speak, only to be grabbed like a rag doll by Kaleb as he starts to frenzy.

Thankfully Frank was on hand to get Kaleb back under control and Ethan who managed to get handcuffs on the big guy.

As the dust settles we find a secret entrance, there were a few traps and locked doors, Ethan was able to disarm and pick and we made our way into a room with screens connected to a surveillance system, so it would appear someone is watching the cannery we are just not sure why or who. Ethan also came across a coffin with his aura perception which no one else could see cos it was invisible, after checking inside there no one home. Ethan plants some surveillance of our own, which Kaleb finds and Luke does his computer thing so we can keep an eye on who ever it is that is watching the cannery.

Ozzy Osbourne - Bark at the Moon

Fucking Werepuppy attacked us while we was looking around some of the Xenith buildings. He tasted quite nice but fuck me if I remember what happened after that. Supposedly I just about tore up my mates. Thankfully Frank managed to use his mumbo jumbo bullshit on me and stopped me long enough for me to get back under control.
We then found a trap door followed by some traps, yup fucking booby traps. Fucking wanker using traps… I mean someone could have lost an eye or something. Found a room with lots of monitors and an invisible stone coffin some beds but no wanker brother.

Paladin Field Report 12477-A (Ethan)

While investigating the outside of the cannery we were attacked by a werewolf. The vicious beast tore into Talia and Kaleb before they were eventually able to subdue it. It didn’t react to demands for it to stop (though luckily that worked on Kaleb when he got a little carried away and I had to ensure he wasn’t a threat to the party or himself).

We found a secret entrance that lead to a room below the cannery. There were several traps and a locked door we had to avoid, but luckily no more werewolves. In fact there were no other occupants present, though we did find multiple cots, and a coffin, that suggested multiple people had stayed there at the same time.

The coffin itself was interesting as a magic spell had made it invisible, and I was only able to detect it with my aura perception. Certainly a smart way for a vampire to hide.

The room had computers with several screens connected to surveillance camers situated all through the cannery. Clearly someone had the cannery under observation, though we have no idea what for. #REDACTED# downloaded the camera footage so that he can sift through it to see if there is anything unusual on there.

Well, that’s my report, hope you’ll believe this one, cause it’s true… just like all the others.

Not that I care, I’ve had a better offer and I’ve seen enough of werewolves to know I don’t want to work for them. My resignation will be filed tomorrow.

Fift Fift Fift Bad Vampire

So after picking ourselves up and working out that the noise was our back up or maybe it was a rescue, Im going with back up im sure we could have taken those guys. We meet with our back up who took us to a room were we got to meet Xynith owner Nicholas. Turned out it was’nt him after us it was his brother, after the talks had ended i get handed a folder, after all these years of thinking my mother was killed in a car accident, she was, but it was no accident so when i get time i shall investicate that further, and they will pay. In the mean time its off to get hammered, which didnt take long for me, must be a light wieght.

So after the hangover passes we make plans to visit the can factory as inspectors, after finding nothing inside we head outside to have a look around, here’s hoping we find spmething…

Frank change's his mind
Xynith is the best

We pick ourselves up of the ground after the grenade explosion, there to greet us was a sergeant or corporal or something telling us to please follow him.

he took us to a room where we were finally introduced to the CEO of Xynith ( frank builds up rage )
he explanes that he never turned us it was his brother Seith he never attacked us it was his brother Seith and that he is trying to get to world where Vampires and humans can co-exist together.

Well i take it all back Xynith is the best Company ever the C.E.O is “The Man” and would be happy to call myself his “Bitch”
If there was anything he wanted or to ask of me i would do it happily.
His two brothers on the other hand can go sit and spin.

After talking with Mr Xynith i was happy to track down Seith’s Minions and bring them to Justice as was the wishes of Mr Xynith " The Man " and not because of his Brother Mr Douche Bag Prince’s orders.

To celebrate we went to a bar and some of us over indulged but all had a good time.

The next night we were on the hunt at the Can factory as “inspectors” but nothing has come of our investigations as of yet.

First day working for Paladin (Ethan)

Well at least it seems Xenith does like us, despite what Tepesko keeps saying. They sent some of their guards, to take care of the turncoat guards that were attacking us… though they were mostly just providing a mobile buffet table for Kaleb.

They were able to sort out Jimmy too, luckily. Not sure how they felt about Tepesko’s… intervention. Turns out he’s a ghoul, after all, so we didn’t need to worry so much.

We finally got the chance to have a proper sit down with Nicholas and gets some answers finally. For a start, it turns out his name isn’t Mr. Xenith. It looks like what is happening is some sort of cold war between vampire factions, that is rapidly warming each day. Nicholas considers himself a Promethean, and thus believes in vampires cohabiting with humans in peace. This definitely seems the faction I agree with the most so I see no problem in helping Xenith, while also trying to complete Paladin’s task.

Nicholas then threw me a bit of a curve-ball, by offering me a job, and letting me figure out what I want the job to be. Complete freedom is attractive… but do I want to sell out and go corporate, when I really want to uphold the law. With the FBI replaced by Paladin though, I don’t know which job I’m even talking about now. I also really need to find out how to spell Xenith if I’m going to work for them.

We decided to pursue the Xenith cannery angle, as we knew Seth’s minions had a base underneath it. We posed as inspectors and had a thorough search of the building, as well as it’s computers, and couldn’t find anything linking the cannery to Seth. We then took our search outside…

Farts Farts and more Farts

So the Fift Fift Fift noise was Nicholas sending in his troops to rescue us from Seths troops. Turns out Nicholas is the Good brother, not the insane brother (Ashton the Prince) or the homicidal brother (Seth). Nicholas is promethian and believes in Humans and Vampires living side by side.
We then stopped at my new local to have a drink and recuperate. Great bar!!! I got a new sponsorship from Zenith made my manager happy. We went to the Canning plant again cause Seth has a base underneath it posing as Inspectors. I told the secretary I was working as an employee of Zenith as part of my sponsorship deal as it helped with the tax implications. Fuck knows if the secretary believed me.

Motherfucking fuckity fuck fuck fuck

OK so I get home from going to training and get told get in the van we are heading over to Zenith Corp to see if we can talk to brother 2 who doesnt want to kill us. So off we go to talk to Jimmy Hand who takes us up to an office to have a wee chat. Frank starts talking to him and all of a sudden gas isbeing vented into the room. Jimmy doesnt look to good so Frank and Luke decide to try and turn him. Shit I didn’t think they had it in them. Maybe there is hope for them yet. Any how I decided it was time to get the fuck outta Nagasaki cause some cunt is dropping bombs right here right now only to find we are fucking locked in aswell. Next thing fucking smoke grenades get chucked into the room. So I decided the best form of defence is attack, only to find it may be the second best form of defence as I get shot by fucking hundreds of guards with Automatic Weapons. So I decide to reassess my situation while having a little lie down. Quickly I decided to retreat with some snacks intow and get back into the room. While I am having a feed Luke decides its a good idea to sneak down in amongst the throng of guards and shoot one of them. He eventually gets back into the room. I gave Frank some packaging that the snack was wrapped in. I grab another snack, while Talia trys to close the door. Frank then takes care of that snack while I grab another. I suddenly realise that none of these big brave guys are helping Talia at all. I have to fucking do everything around here ffs. But as I am heading there with a snack for her the throngs come back into the room following a grenade being thrown in the room. Next thing funny wizzing noises and here we are…
