Rite of Passage, 9th Session:
Blood flows, claws flash, fangs rip. The battle is in full swing; fighting against himself Grey Paw takes advantage of the distraction caused by Rena and enters the dark bowels of the truck he has ripped an opening into. There the stench of the Wyrm assails him as he sees the great box, bound down with ropes and webbing. Calling on the tearing fury of the Hispo form he sets about ripping the bindings that hold the box. Rena and the pack fight on, spread out along the convoy. Banes twist in unnatural shapes and unleash both silver and their own foul gifts as the wind bears the distant call of approaching reinforcements, a chorus of damnation heralding the advent of the children of the cursed spiral.
Once again, ignoring the battle around, the insides of the cavernous prison, the truck, now lit with eerie flame, prey at Grey Paws senses as taking the battle form he calls on all his strength to force the great box back out through the hole in the truck’s side… a mighty heave, a leap and he is outside sending the box tumbling down the slope through the blizzard.
Meanwhile above, on the roof of the truck, a half-moon of the cursed dancers lashes about with the powers at her command. Her attention is captured by a call, a challenge. One would name her coward and cursed, thus she finds herself bound into conflict with a wholly different dancer. This one a dancer of shapes, a master of Kailindo… the two vanish from hearing behind us as their battle seems swallowed whole by the storm.
What a night! It was amazing! We got to fight Fomori! Actual Formori! Ambush went well. Convoy came and we pushed tree trunks down and caused the lead van off the road…then the other trucks we slightly off and the ground underneath gave in thanks to the water spirit’s undermining. Summoning the North wind was clever. Got really hard to see, but no need.
Was on top, so I got a good look. 4 guys in the front van, armed too. Jumped down, with some mighty fine acrobatics if i dont say so myself and sliced 1 of them in 2, before the others shot me. Let me tell you, Silver Bullets hurt the blazes…but thank me sterile bollocks, it dont hurt as bad as it could have. Still, Marty joined in and got 1 of them, while I got the other 2. Nasty bunch too. 1 made of mushrooms I think..the other, filled with black sludge. Ew. managed to avoid those. By the time we were done, sounded like Grey Paw and Rena had got the item…but then I heard it. Black Spiral Dancer calls! Wow…a chance to fight one of them!
There was green fire on the roof of one of the trucks, real nasty stuff. How awesome would it be to shink a Black Spiral Dancer! Stylishly, of course. But, before I could do anything more, something else joined in, rushing up and jumping onto the roof. Wanted to see, so i jumped up too. 1 massive melee. 1 female Black Spiral Dancer (Not a bad looker if I say so myself…shame she went to the Wyrm side. still), trying to claw and green fire this grey wolf, who as changing shape so quickly i couldnt concentrate. Still, you dont waste time. Rest of the pack was running, so I ran too, helping them carry the crate off.
Long story short, met up with Pole, who had decided tracking a helicopter was a good idea, and took the artifact to the nice Bear we met. Made a promise to find a way to properly secure it before heading home.
Took a while, but we finally made it and, low and behold, all of this wasa nasty Black Spiral Dancer Plot! Who could have seen it coming?! ok, maybe a bit thick…still. Either way, now am a full Garou. Woohoo! Cant wait to tell the rest of my family…
we got out of that alive i can barely believe it, it is all merged together in a big blur, but we got out with the package. now we need to decide what todo with it. for now we have left it with bear, he was willing to hide it for now but a more permanant solution needs to be found. but for now at least it is safe. after leaving the package with bear, we finally mangaed to make our way home to new york, ah the feeling of those soaring towers. to be home once again. a feeling i can barely descibe. and now we are full Garu, it will be hard to return to studies after this.
