Hey!

I heard about you getting stuck with the BBBOBL. Sorry to hear that bro, but hey I also heard you made him do something AWESOME.

I mean man! That was a Troll if I ever saw one, Making a Mysterium break into his own club house and screw the rules. That’s like convincing a Catholic nun to STREAK. :D How did you do it? Get him drunk? Stone? High on meth?

I heard he came bursting through the door screaming something about “Knowledge.” He burst through the guards WITHOUT MAGIC and just RAN through. I heard he didn’t stop until he ran into a WALL.

Whats more the Old men are tearing their hair out trying to figure out what to do. They are saying it was an Awakening or something, which can’t be possible, from what I understand Dora the Explora was at least rank three, and I say WAS because from what I understand they kicked him out. They wanted me there because they damned near took a bite out of you, I had to reminded them that the F.c. wouldn’t pull that shit, not even an insane one like you. They were talking about spying and some shit

Man dude what happened? I have a bet with Borders and Renfair that he was just faking but they think it was legit.

anyway signing off

Basement,

Yeah, looks like we’ve got another Cabalmate soon. Haven’t informed the Heralds yet, so don’t tell anyone, but it’s definitely looking that way. I can’t talk about it, but suffice to say the BBBOBL is gone. The guy’s got a new name and everything.

Sorry man, but I can’t take credit for any of that. Just let him into the library and he did everything else himself. Awakenings are trippy shit, you know? Sorry to tell you, but I think you owe Borders and Renfair another one. For an Acanthus, you sure do lose a lot of bets.

As far as getting nuns to streak, did I tell you that story? I was a weird Apprentice.

Your letting him into your Cabal? I heard from some of the F.c.-ers where he came from he was insane and really grumpy! Are you sure you want to? They said it was hard enough keeping the Guardians off his back. I can’t Imagine what the Mysterium are going to do to him in this city. You have bigger balls than me.

No wai you have the keys to the library?!

Also its not luck its logic: He can’t have awakened. The dude was a Full blown sphinx and everything, there were stories of him casting and stuff, like during New Orleans he lit a vampbitch on fire. OR the time he summoned a TROGDOR on Boston. There is now way a Sleeper could do that with out awakening!

You have to tell me next Cacus, we are voting for P.m. anyway so it will just be a bunch of waffling.

Re:awakening?
 

The guy doesn’t really have anywhere else to go, and I’ve been responsible for him for this long anyway – might as well make him a full member. I don’t want the poor fuck going off and getting himself killed, do I? At least this way I can keep an eye on him. If the Mysterium want to things to him, then that’s all the more reason he needs a Cabal’s protection, eh? You know how it is in the F.C. We take care of our own. And name one Mastigos who can’t be accurately described as “insane and grumpy”.

Not the Aetheneum; my library. Those books caught another one. One of my best acquisitions.

As far as the Awakening thing goes, it’s a long story. You’re not telling me anything I don’t know – I was there for half that stuff – but I’m not bullshitting you here. Not something I could do justice to over e-mail anyway.

Be careful, your generosity might bite you in the ass. The last group that figured that is in a Vampires castle acting like hounds. still your right.. its the honourable thing to do.
You might find they are very persistent though. If he literally awakened they are going to want to test and poke and prod him like a lab rat, and they won’t take no for an answer. This is the find of a life time, and the fact that hes living and can be experimented on.. well.. I like the Mysterium but I don’t trust them as far as I can throw them.

grins oh did they now. I think that makes this all the sweeter. You think you can convince him to go into the free council? we would welcome him for sure if you think hes cool.

fine but I want the scoop. I might even trade the latest sleeper Wizard : The stirring protype for it.

Tell me something I don’t know. I’m being careful. You know Mastigos.

Jesus, nobody’s taken the leeches down yet? How hasn’t anything been done about that yet? Get someone down to the local assembly, kick their asses into gear and get a column set up. This shit’s gone on long enough.

You’re telling me the Mystagogues are gonna look to be experimented on a recognized Mage in the Consilium? I thought that was just Boston being fucking insane. And, well, you don’t want to see how I left that place…

I don’t think he’d be up for joining the Assembly. The guy seems pretty Diamond. I wouldn’t mind having him in the Order though, no.

Jesus, they’re still putting out those games? How hasn’t Black Dog gone out of business yet?

Right, I forget your one of those. You don’t do all the creepy “I am a demon summoner” things I would expect.

We have been trying but Honesty its a wreck down there. From what I can tell the Leeches are being more open than usual, but not enough to break the masquerade. Its martial law down there as far as the Conslli are concerned. The A.a. are trying but they just don’t know how to stop them from doing what they are doing. I am trying to convince the F.c. down there to help but the seers are still giving them trouble. We have lost quiet a few friends to them at this point. Theres a U.s. wide call, but no asking of us yet. You know how Americans are with accepting help.

Nah the whole Groups half crazy, those damned secrets get into their brain and eat them alive. They figure if they can dissect him properly they can figure out how to Awaken people, or perhaps what caused him to be able to cast. They are literally wetting their robes over it.

I heard. Damn the F.c. are praising you as a hero. They say since then a lot of the old diamond mages have up and left Boston and they are getting their chance. You know it was hard for them to break that old lie feeding machine but then you come in and it just smashes.

Thats too bad, the guy would have plenty of fans, we have been watching him since forever, we think hes bat shit crazy but at least getting him on our side would let us driect him better.

Nah man they just rebooted. Tell you something they are better now, though the Reverent reboots a bit dry you know? Less back story makes it harder to play well. Wizards though, well they had it so spot on the GoTV were worried one of us had a hand in it.

Yeah, I’ve… never really been one to play up the stereotypes unless I have to. People don’t generally want to get to know you when you’re a creepy demon-summoning “Look at me I’m so evil” motherfucker, so…

I still don’t know how they’re even doing it in the first place, so I’m not surprised the AA haven’t figured out all the details yet. And the Seers, man, haven’t they calmed down yet after what happened in Boston? Shit, did you hear about what Gonzo did to that poor Throne bastard? Whips out his gun and blows his head clean off before he even has a chance to blink. I love Gonzo, man, but sometimes he scares me a little. One moment he’s the life of the party, all smoking and drinking and who knows what else and the next he’s dead serious. The guy gets cold when he gets down to business.

Again, there’s a story behind what happened with Pandora – his name’s Iblis now, btw – and they’re not gonna find anything out going after him. He’s getting better now that… well, I’ll let him tell you.

Yeah, never was one for the bloodsuckers. It’s bad enough that we have to deal with the real thing; don’t need to be seeing them in my off-time. As far as Wizards goes, I wonder how many references to Ancient Lands they put in this edition, if the Guardians are on our asses about it? I still can’t believe that freak managed to pull off that stunt. Had to have those books in my library just to recognize the sheer balls that takes.

I see you aren’t but.. Iblis? really? The Rejected lover of God turned Satan? Have to say this about your new Cabal mate, hes got flair. A certain B-movie flair but flair none the less.

The A.A. trying but remember that blocker thing the Vamps up here had? Well the Americans have those in spades. I think the Seers are helping the God damned monstrosities. They are loosing good men left right and centre.
I don’t know about the Seers but I heard a lot of America is in the midst of a civil war: mage style.
Yeah same, though don’t tell him that. If I had half the brass balls he had I would have a full set and a half.

Was he turned into a newt? ;3
Seriously though “Iblis” will still be a marvel. IF he was not awakened then he is a Sleep walker who could cast spells, OR he has been in a fucking Shadow play for ten years. Either way that’s something that we didn’t know could happen! I wish I could have been in the drivers seat for that.

Ah tons, all over the place, though they seem to have dissembled the real stuff with disbelief. Same idea for casting though. Backroom says they were pretty good at it before, so it might be Guardian interference.

Yeah, not all of us don’t go for the fire-and-brimstone stuff. What can I say? The kid’s pretty religious.

Seers in with the bloodsuckers? First they bow to the usurper-kings, now they’re in cahoots with undead parasites? How low can they sink? And a fucking Wizard’s War? I’m glad I don’t live down there. What happened to Boston was bad enough. If that’s happening all over the place then… christ. I hope our big guns are looking out for em. Lord knows the Tetrarchs’ll be backing up their side.

The Mysterium’s looking to dissect the poor guy and here you are making Monty Python references. I knew I kept you around for something.

In any case he definitely wasn’t a Proximus, if that’s what you were thinking. And really, I don’t think you wanted to be around for all the shit we had to go through to get to that point. Almost got killed… at least three times. I’ll tell you the whole thing next Assembly. We’re living in interesting times, my friend.

And yeah, that sounds like Guardians work. Looks like we’ve got some Prophets looking through it, if they’re still leaving in some of the stuff rather than just censoring it all. At least we got the good Guardians, eh?

Well he’s from the southern U.S. Its no surprise. Just be careful he doesn’t start summoning angels or excising demons. If I am around him and he goes for my head I will blast him into next year. Literally.

Doesn’t surprise me in the least to be honest. They want power and they know they can turn the abominations head with all the entertainment they can get out of it. I am surprised though you haven’t heard. Next you will be telling me you didn’t hear about the pure tribes down there. We are lucky we have the R.C.M.M.P. out in the circle, they stopped that after the attack on Toronto, but the American pure…

Basically. From what I can tell the Seers are just concentrated in the south for now but its still causing a lot of damage to the Veil and the innocents around them. They need to get their spell happy fingers in their pockets.

From what I can tell Canada’s pretty much on a lock down from most American Mages and those in Canada are being watched closely. We don’t want this spreading up here much less to the rest of the world. As for the Archmages… well we will see.

I try, the only way to solve such a conversation is to yuk it up while we can.

I figured that, if he were he would be much prettier. As for wanting to be around, I guess, but I really wish I had seem what you saw. Watching an Awakening would be awesome.

Sounds like it. I think this is the key for awakening at least some people. I told you my story yeah? It was crazy but I think the only way I could have ever realized Magic existed was through the books. I hope they keep letting it seep more.
