    Nimbus: A spatial distortion occurs around Alastor, bending the world toward him as if the walls were closing in.

    The Circle of Creation. A potent reminder of the power of the Awakened Nation in Sacramento, the gorgeous replica of Westminster Abbey stood brightly against the sun like a beacon of light. Within, the Mastigos known as Alastor, a practical gentleman with a sense of fun along with stern duty, had spent some pennies to add an option to their lives.

    A ping-pong table.

    And a couple of two-sixers of drinks with mix. Nothing special, but then, this wasn't a special night. The Heirarch hadn't called it. Neither had the Sentinel. It was simply the commander of the Adamantine Arrow reaching out to check in and make sure everyone was still okay.

    With the quiet of late, they probably needed an opportunity to simply... be. To socialize and relax against the heat of Sacramento's summer.

    Plus, who knew? Maybe there were newcomers out there that needed to check in.

    This thread will close on June 30; it's a quick social opportunity for the entire Consilium in the wake of a quiet couple of months IC.

    It felt as if he wasn't at the Circle in ages. Little wonder - the building always seemed a bit intimidating, out of place, like it mocked the area and by extension - the mages within. Shodan much preferred either the coziness of his own sanctum or those green spaces in the city that weren't yet devoured by the Man.

    But something compelled him to visit today, and from what he sees, it was a good call.

    "Hey, man. A ping-pong table?" He asks, visibly amused and relieved "And... drinks, I see? Good thing I ate lunch already" Never drink on an empty stomach. You'll only embarass yourself.

    "Is it somebody's birthday?"

    Mages might be capable of bending reality to their will, and that makes them prone to forget they are people first and foremost. And people have birthdays. Small joys between trying not to get eaten by Paradox and wrestling for control over millenia-old artifacts.

    There is the clicking of hard boots on stone and the First Talon walks into the room. The nasty-looking knives at her belt and pistol under her shoulder ruin the like of her long coat somewhat, but Phoenyx would much rather that than be unarmed and vulnerable. She's wearing loose pants and a form-fitting red vest-top.

    Giving a look at the informal layout and a small nod to Shodan, she cocks her head and turns to Alastor. "I was not expecting this. Had I known we were having a party I would have brought something." Direct as ever. And a joke? Or just a statement? It's hard to tell.

    Nimbus

    Dark shadows scatter in ordered symmetrical patterns traversed by a crackling pallid silver light that wraps Winter in a pleasantly numbing and icy coldness.
    When vulgar magic is cast, the frequency of the oscillation of the dark fluid surges until the shadows arrange themselves in a solid black halo around Winter's head, the white light darkens into a fiery black sunlight and his eyes are set ablaze with vivid incandescence.

    The Guardian enter the circle, or better, reenters the central chapel from the side entrance, the one directly from the Guardian's wing. He's positively surprised to see the Arrows and the Libertines. For the past few weeks, Sacramento had been quiet. He figured their dwindling numbers were from a mix of people being busy with their lives and going off-grid to avoid the FBI's surveillance.
    He adjusts his white shirt, before he joins the group for the social outing. He greets them with a nod, but doesn't say much.

    Kaze wanders in and looks surprised. "I totally missed the memo! I just came by to see if anyone was around!" he exclaims with a grin, apparently just glad to see everyone.
