Dark Boston

Unconventional Assault

Session 3

After casing the apartment the Ghost’s intended victim lived in, the Primordial Seekers went back to the sanctum and began debating over and preparing for the victim’s defense. After a significant amount of inconclusive discussion, Aurelia contacted the cabal to mention that a great deal of spirit activity had been happening below the Boston Commons, and to offer a set of five gloves that would make the cabal invisible to spirits for a week to help them investigate.

The cabal then set out to the area under the Commons, to a set of unused subway tunnels which led to a tunnel that was obviously created by magic. It was enchanted and guarded by a pair of spirits which, due to the gloves the Seekers wore, could not see them. In this sanctum were obvious signs of human sacrifice near a large, murder-aspected hallow, a set of ritual chambers which included the symbolic body parts of murdered Awakened along with an indication that two more murders were planned, a small sleeping area, and a small library of necromantic and spirit-related magic including a book that implied the ritual was intended to allow the mage to ascend to the Supernal realm.

Murugan then called up a nearby (actual) ghost and used it to spy on the Ghost. The Seekers left for their sanctum and resumed discussions of strategy. Kite acquired a stray cat and a swarm of bees, Murugan brought water bottles that he turned into Molotov cocktails and improved various weapons’ accuracies, Lumen did item enchantment to affect spirits if necessary, and Zurvan cast a spell that would improve his luck. They waited until the ghost informed them that the Ghost had fallen asleep, and wearing their gloves made an assault.

As the Seekers entered this time, they tripped a spell that woke the Ghost, but continued anyway. Poirot shot the Ghost and was charged in return; Kite used pepper spray and the bees to distract him, and then changed the cat into a bear to attack him; Lumen counterspelled most of his spellcasting, reducing him to (admittedly effective) punches. The spirits attacked the cat-turned-bear and the Ghost successfully healed himself. Kite, Murugan, and Zurvan switched to Murugan’s Molotov cocktails, which along with Lumen’s final blast of Supernal Fire finished the Ghost. Murugan then attempted to drain the Ghost’s soul as he died.

With gloves still on, the cabal walked past the spirit guardians still present and looted the small library.

Friggin’ bees.
