When It all went wrong

Notes – NPC debts – Helping or Fighting NPCs will earn or you are indebted to them

• The characters awaken early to screaming in the door way of the room found earlier as an emergency haven. A man is screaming in pain, burning from the suns deathly rays. Cassandra rushes out to try and rescue the man having a gut feeling who it might be. Tanner delves into the mind of the burning in the last few seconds to discover it is Václav Klaus. Just as Václav Klaus crumples into ash, a horde of Nosferatu bursts into the room. The blame falls upon the coterie for the brazen assassination of the Prince Elect. The group is lead by none other than the Primogen of the Nosferatu, having already hacked our phones. Cody having sent damning evidence of Remember the Tremere ordered me to assassinate Václav Klaus.
Melody Black is marked as the conspirator whom set the plan into motion to murder Václav Klaus.
Cassandra and Murphy were utterly outraged, however Tanner stepped forward saying that Melody was incapable of setting up such a scheme, much less betrayal. That he however was more than capable of such an underhanded plan.
• Both were taken into custody, while Murphy and Cassandra were escorted through the tunnels to the Chateau Marmont Hotel.
Cody has been busy in Walmart, having come across a newspaper – “Gang Massacre in Santa Monica – 64 members of the gang Slaughtered. Man, woman, and child.” – LA Times. Cody immediately knew he had been a pawn and felt that the coterie were in trouble. Calls his small group of ghouls, telling them the unfortunate information about the death of family/friends.
Melody and Tanner are put into the same car, Melody seems focused on trying to keep her ghoul pet hidden. While Tanner uses his mental powers to feel out how many enemies are around us (2 more cars, no Nosferatu) then probes the drivers mind to discover their destination. Finding that the location was the Chateau Marmont Hotel, but a secret entrance rather than the guest entrance.
• He also uncovered the fact that these men had visited all the chantries within the recent past.
Cassandra and Murphy are guided through the sewers, eventually finding their way to the coteries haven. Through a secret entrance. Murphy is not very comfortable with the fact that there is a way into our home he did not know about.
Cody makes a deal with Nines (Anarchs) about forming an alliance with the Sabbat to fight the Camarilla, after telling Nines that the massacre in Santa Monica was the Camarilla’s doing.
Melody sends a text to Murphy reading “There’s a ghouled fish in my room, please feed it while I’m away.” The guards believed this to be a cryptic message. Tanner falls over laughing at their stupidity, claiming this is how innocent and naive she is.
• A stranger down, Jacinta Graven, in the Chateau Marmont Hotel prison slinks from the shadows, saying “You say so much, but do so little.” Thus telling Tanner to be quiet and having a telepathic conversation with Melody.
Cassandra and Murphy are nearly caught by Tremere when they pour into the groups haven, luckily they escape with the Chateau Marmont Hotel plans that Cody needed.
Cody calls Murphy and they make plans to meet up and start the war against the Camarilla.
Tanner discusses a plan of sending Scorchy down to trick the guards to coming to us. Then attacking them and escaping.
Cody, Murphy, and Cassandra meet at ____
Cody begins embracing his crew.

Extra Notes:

TannerTanner is literally threatened, as well as having the life of Melody threatened as well by Jacinta.

Murphy – Debt against Amanda W. Lewin, Owe a debt to Virgil

Melody – Possom hereby named as Scorchy – Due to the circumstances of Václav Klaus dying.
The strange sabbat vampire makes Scorchy completely symmetrical.

Cody – Owes a debt to Virgil

Cassandra – Debt against Amanda W. Lewin, Owes a debt to Virgil
