(The Eye) Fiat Lux

    It didn't take long to get to Davis from Sacramento that next night, and the locked classroom that Thomas was provided a key for was exactly what he was told it was. Out of the way. Unused at this point of the year. There was nothing spectacularly secure about it at all, save for locked cabinets and obscurity. Whenever they chose to bring the Eye, this place would do, but it wasn't Fort Knox by any stretch.

    There were no Kindred interceptors.

    In fact, as the Kindred moved through the city, they saw nothing that indicated vampiric presence in the area. No tags. No graffiti in the slang of the Cacophony. Nothing easily recognizable. To be fair, the town only had an average population of about 70,000, and it was a university town. In May, a lot of folks were going home for the summer.

    The Circle of the Crone and the Lancea Sanctum members might have put their feelers out. No members of their Covenants were noted to currently reside in Davis. That didn't mean they didn't, or that there weren't other Kindred around, but it certainly lent itself to the understanding that this was not a big town, and the vampires here were likely running fairly quiet.

    Which is precisely what the investigators of the Eye realized they needed to do. Find a place to stay, if they were remaining in Davis and not going back to Sacramento each night in these shortening California eves. Get some entrenchment.

    This wasn't their Domain.

    This wasn't their home.

    For this Scene, your Blood Pool is Humanity - 1 for feeding away from your home Domain.

    This means there are no Favor bonuses, no Haven bonuses, no Herd bonuses -- but also for any Kindred staying in the Barrens, the negative modifier is gone, too. You are, for all intents and purposes, feeding in another city for this scene.

    Naturally, being smart Kindred, you fed outside of Davis's city limits, so if there are Kindred here, you will not be deemed to be poachers.

    Please note that I am not going off of years-old plot about what was in Davis. If any of your PCs have Politics 3+ or the Cacophony Whisperer merit, please advise and I will give you some information about what Kindred could expect in this town from a recent standpoint.

    Please let me know clearly where the Eye is - if it is staying at the Crone Farm for this scene or if it is coming to Davis now.

    Mable plans to stay at the farm with the eye unless a good argument for a different decision exists.

    Elettra is ready and willing to help in anyway the Crone is needing. Since this is dealing with something for their covenant and not hers, she waits patiently for the others to take the lead.

    Krieg looks to Thomas Boyle ( Woland ). "We get in, drop it off, and get back before the sun rises. We need more intel before we make too many visits. If anything bad happens, the Eye messes up Davis, and not Sacramento."

    "And who are we indebting ourselves to this time, Krieg?" Thomas didn't like the idea of going in nigh-blind either, but the prospect of everyone in Sacramento knowing the Crones are up to something is even more unnerving "Do you need any help repaying that loan from Simmons?"

    Before she comes up with exorbitant interest?


    "Besides, Mable seems intent on keeping the Eye on the farm tonight. We already did some scouting and came up empty, so she may need convincing to let it go"


    They are on the Crone Farm's porch, but Thomas is ready to go to Davis if needed. It's not that far, after all.

    We'll put all of you at the Farm so you can hit your final approach and go, but please be quick about it. JonReeves may also join you. I will need to know specifically where the Eye is going to be, if it is going to have anyone with it, and who is going to be where.

    Mable heard the guys talking on the porch. She opened the door. "You are not wrong, Thomas."

    "Of course I'm not" he says to Mable. Sometimes his Ventrue pride surfaces like that.

    "Let's all go together to Davis, with the Eye. The recon came up empty, so we might as well get the feel of the place. Elettra Vitale should be here somewhere..."

    The Lord doesn't wait for a response. He ducks into a side room with a quick "Be right back".

    Once there, he prepares a bowl of water and slices his hand lightly, just enough for vitae to drop. Reciting a brief supplication to Isis, he allows for blood to mix with water and awaits the results, focusing his will on their current situation.

    "I am right here," Elettra says as she steps out from around the corner. She was just taking in the scenery and must have wonder out of sight. She's just waiting on some directions from the others on what to do next.
