  1. Liberty Park Sunday, December 11, 2016 9:23 PM Somedays, Cannonade wondered what it had to be like to work in Animal Control in this town. It had been one of the weirdest "track downs" he'd ever had. Sometimes, on patrol, he'd run into a cop who wanted to flag him down over something weird, usually related to the Crusaders. Other times, Commander Grayston of AEGIS might track him down, wanting to send him off to God knows where to handle some new interesting wrinkle in geopolitics. This time, however, he'd touched down in the Fens to get some coffee at the Dunkin Donuts, only to be flagged down by a woman with blue hair and the uniform of an Animal Control officer. "It was a jogger," she'd said. "She'd been running through the park, said she was passing by Poet's Grove when they appeared. Dogs. Three of them, black as night. One of them did a real number on her arm, but she was carrying pepper spray and managed to drive them off." "And if you're talking to me, I'm guessing they can't actually be dogs." "Given this town, they could be, but... we checked where she was attacked. No sign of spoor, paw prints, droppings, anything. And her description... it may have been dark and she may have been scared, but they didn't resemble any dog we know. Maybe Mastiffs, at an outside stretch, but... Mastiffs aren't usually that dark in coloration. And then there was the other thing..." "What other thing?" "She said they came running out from behind a hedge. But that part of Poet's Grove is completely clear cut." And so, Cannonade ventured off into a dark stretch of an already dark park, feeling the shadows loom. The air felt crisp and cool, and he could smell pine on the air. No dog, though, wet or otherwise. But he had a feeling that, given this town, that wasn't going to hold for long.
  2. Silberman's Books. Sunday, December 11th, 2016. Sundays were sleepy at Silberman's, since the store didn't open until noon on the weekends; this largely eliminated the early coffee rush, but meant the folks who came in now were looking to take their time and stay awhile. The sales floor looked very Christmas-y, and the fragrance of the decorated Scotch pine filled the store. Lynn was in her office checking emails while Gretchen sat perched on her stool behind the counter, reading a magazine; her half trendy/half 'screw you' ensemble pegged her as a former art student, but nonetheless a playful pair of reindeer antlers were perched on her head.

    The Sidhe

    News about the Sidhe. The HellQ
  4. Player Name: Macabreengel Character Name: Mason Akers Power Level: 10 (150/153PP) Trade-Offs: None Unspent Power Points: 3 In Brief: He is a college student with a bleeding heart and a cursed bloodline that allows him to tap into arcane power. Residence: His condo in the North End. Base of Operations: Same as his residence. Catchphrase: N/A Alternate Identity: The Sidhe Identity: Secret Birthplace: Creede, Colorado (Denver) Occupation: Student Affiliations: Family: Hank and Cheryl Akers Description: A shorter, lanky college kid. Usually in jeans and an oversized t-shirt. Age: 19 (DoB: September 9, 1996) Apparent Age: Same as age. Gender: Male Ethnicity: Caucasian (English heritage) Height: 5'8" Weight: 150 lbs Eyes: Hazel Hair: Light Brown, Shorter Power Descriptions: Mason's powers come from a century long pact between his family and The King on the Yellow Crowned Hill, a Fae (Fae in the style of Dr Strange and Mr Norell). The pact allows him to draw power directly from the Realm of the Fairies, which lets him ignore the whole hand waving and mumbling thing. There are other complications as well (See complications). History: Hundreds of years ago, Mason's family had dealings with the Fair Folk on the British Isle. Whether they were cursed or blessed is hard to determine. The family has a mystical nature, giving them access to certain powers and magic, but they also are unable to have more than one child. When the family left the British Isles for the new world, the Fair Folk took it as an insult. The Akers family has been on the run/hiding ever since. Hank Akers inherited most of his wealth and increased it slightly by expanding on his father's land deals in the west. He has focused most of his arcane study on keeping his family hidden from the Fae interests. When he met Cheryl Brewer, he put her through the general tests to see if she was open-minded enough to deal with his family's predicament. Things turned out well and not too long later, Mason was born. Mason Akers was an average country kid. He got good grades, enjoyed hiking and snowboarding, and played too many video games. He learned of his family's secret at 12 and started his study of magic at that time. Besides his extra studies, he had an average childhood. His parents were a little extra paranoid around the internet, but there was no avoiding it. He played some sports: Cross Country mainly, but dabbled in soccer, football, basketball, and others. The first real trouble came when he wanted to go out of state for college. After 6 months of arguing, it was finally agreed that he could go to Freedom City University. His parents got him a condo, which his father protected, and gave him a protective ring along with the usually send-off. Personality & Motivation: In many ways, Mason is an average college student. He goes to class and does his homework. Occasionally he decides to sleep through an early morning lecture. He gets good grades but more because of intelligence than hard work. He goes to parties on occasion and has a show or two that are guilty pleasures. He enjoys spending most of his free time outside, however, particularly in more rural landscapes. Some of his parents' paranoia has rubbed off on him, but for the most part he feels the threat is overblown. Mason has a hard time stomaching human suffering, especially of innocents. Thinking about the plight of refugees or targets of hate crimes really gets him worked up. Mason is motivated by the fact that he is capable of stopping people's suffering. He also wants to prove to his parents that it is possible to make the world a better place without being killed or taken by the King on the Yellow Crowned Hill. Powers & Tactics: Mason tends to scout areas from home using Astral Form. In confrontations he tries to use snare and let the police catch the troublemaker. Complications: Hunted: The King on the Yellow Crowned Hill is still trying to hunt down Mason's family to end the line. If Mason uses too much magic in a scene, or in front of too many witnesses, Fae loyal to the King might show up and try to detain him. They would want to bring him back in chains to their master. Fay Pact: Mason is not Fae, but the source of his powers are. Many faeries are unable to lie, although they will mislead through technicalities and such. If Mason tries to use magic to break his word, it will fail for the scene. If he breaks his word without magic, any spells he casts for the rest of the scene will try to enforce his promise. (After promising not to hurt someone, a suspect gives up. He could let one of his friends hurt the suspect or he could cast snare. If he tried to cast blast on the suspect, it would miss. If he stabs the suspect then tries to teleport away. The teleport would change to a heal spell, then his magic would fail for the rest of the scene. Attempts to cheat the system fail at best and backfire at worst.) Cold Iron Allergy: If bound in cold iron (true iron, not iron alloys, etc), his magic is completely suppressed.
