Fifth Session – A lot of different kinds of activity this session, without the frontal assaults that are our bread and butter. Of course, our attempt to sneak blackmail material into a police inspector’s house to have some dirt on the Bluecoats goes south and there’s some shooting.
Delazia Finchester, of the Circle of Flame (cult), which is an underground subset of the Centralia Club (National Geographic Society style club), has been on Reis’ “get with” list for a while. (In other words she’s the Emma Frost of the Inner Circle in the Hellfire Club, but less evil). They want some artifacts that sound exactly like the Vecna stuff – the eye of Kotor, the hand of Kotor, the
head heart of Kotor… Reis talks everyone else into it, his primary motivation being that Delazia is hot.
So he summons a spirit, the Hand of Sorrow, to get information. That starts going awry and we end up sacrificing Stinky Pete, our formerly-homeless hanger-on, to it. We are very careful to keep this both from Kraid and his player Tim, who missed the session, as they are both big Stinky Pete fans.
Then we go to trade that info to the Centralia Club and get unceremoniously shooed away by the doormen and a backup ghost.
