GURPS - TrueBlood

Quinn's...Lamp?

Flashback: 1472 – Feudal Japan. Katsu has discovered the location of an ancient blind swordsman is taking on a new student. Jeff arrives at the location to meet Jubei (The Master) along with his two students. Later, Katsu discovered a package came for Chiu (one of the students), after which, Chiu’s skill got better. That night, he snuck into Chiu’s room, and found the package. Opening it, he sees an Oni mask. It comes to life and Katsu drops it.

Chui grabs the maks and put its on gaining power. The Master comes in and Chiu takes him out along with Katsu. Afterwards, he buries Katsu in a casket and wraps it in silver.

Present: Back at Parkers house, Eric tells the group their fees have been paid for the location of Pam (human not vampire); however, he’s not satified. Eric wants to find out how this is possible she is human and if there is a way to restore her. He will pay them for their work. They agree. Eric picks up Pam and super speeds out.

Soma askes Parker (glamoured), why was Pam living with him? He said that Liam had given her to him as a gift. When asked, “A gift for what?” for finding this case at their work. He also mentioned he and Liam are lawyers working for a lawfirm, Balch & Bingham. The group ask, “What was this case?” Parker responds the doesn’t not know all the details, it’s at his work.

Meanwhile, they hear something in the bathroom. Upon investigating it turns out there is another male in the bathroom. Kyle! Dash goes into the bathroom and gets Kyle to get dressed … he closes the door. Seconds later, they hear the window break. Katsu goes outside and captures kyle. He is then Glamoured and put in the trunk.

Flashback: 1912 – Dash is sitting in his personal library when a flicker of flame comes out of nowhere. From here, a beautiful female comes out and request to hire Dash. He agrees to the job. Careful not to touch Dash, she gives him a Map of a hidden temple in South America.

He goes to the hidden temple and makes his way through all of the traps to the hidden treasure. Upon getting the golden coins, he causes the temple to destroy itself retrieving the Lamp. He returns to his library and gives her the treasure and gets payment for it.

Present:The group now hears police sirens in the background. They leave and check into a Hotel known as the Silent Shore. They decide this will be their base of operation. After getting settled and formulating a place, they go to the law firm where all of the lawyers seem to work.

They go into Liam office and Parkers office. From Parkers office, they get the files from Parkers computer on what Liam was working on. In Liam office, Soma sets off a silent alarm from a complicated series of events. Soma can hear it with his ultra-hearing. The group has Parker call downstairs to cancel the silent alarm only to hear from the guard, “No alarms down here have been sounded.”

Parker looks out the window to see a black car drive up. From here, two males, like Jewish shamans, get out of the car. The Team goes to the roof. The Shamans see the team on top of the roof and assault the building. The top half tips over and crashes into the next building which is a condo.

Russell Edgington, the King of Mississippi, is the condo the group smashes into. He is surprised by this and asks who the group are. They inform him they are just visiting and were on their way to see him to let him know they were just visiting. The King reconizies Dash and is flattered he is in town.

Giving them a new Prowler, the group leaves.

They go back to the Silent Shore and review what the plan is. They decide the next step would the graveyard that Liam was researching. With a bit of their own reseach: They discover this graveyard was were witches were killed. And, there is a left over supernatural power thread here. From here, they go.

At the Graveyard: They summon Ryan. They ask why Ryan was after Liam in the first place. He tells them Liam had stolen Quinn’s lamp which is what he wanted back. And, two wishes has been granted for Liam.

Session Ends.
