    The past few months had blessedly seen none of the odd and possibly concerning flyers that were creating almost dead zones in the Hisil. Terse words and the weakness of humanity had allowed the pack to urge that group on without bloodshed. Though surely some questions remained.

    There are no hand written flyers this time, nothing stapled to poles or trees. No dead spots in the hisil. No Guile staring at you when you round a corner and think you have a moment alone. No this time it is in the local newspapers both in print and digital.

    QuoteQuote:
    The world is dark and only growing darker. There is no reason to stand alone without friends and family.

    We are the Temple of the Primordial Dawn. Any and all faiths are welcome to join us. Those without are welcome as well.

    Don't stand alone. Don't be alone.

    Join us and see the light of the world that we can make together as one people.
    An address just south of the Sacramento River Deep Water Ship Channel in West Sacramento is listed. Along with services time at Dawn and Dusk. A google search will show that the Temple is located in one of the numerous and repetitive structures that can be found around vaguely industrial parts of cities.

    There is no location set at the start this story. Instead I want to prompt the pack and let you all work out how you approach it.

    It seems I was too vague, I am sorry about that. Feel free to hop in and show where your Wolf is when they see the posting. Conveniently or possibly "conveniently" that will happen around the same time.

    Nathaniel was slowly growing a potentially insightful and undoubtedly dangerous interest in the occult and the "Other." Those things that Nathaniel knew existed, and that fell outside the purview of Wolf and Spirit.

    And naturally, part of "occult" was... Well, "cult." And this Temple of the Primordial Dawn seemed just that. His academic studies and dalliances in the occult had given Nathaniel enough to know that these cults (and those in the past) could very well have served to house or hide the activities and knowledge of Others...

    So now here Nathaniel was, slowly wandering around the area, standing across from some holy building nearby and reading over one of his occult texts (an index of demonic figures in legends). If he was careful and kept a check on his curiosity, he might stumble on something to help in his journey.

    He just had to wait in his approach- take some time to compose himself, watch the crowd. Keep his suit clean. And peek up from reading to find anyone that might wish to partake in such an act.


    Equipment: Phone, some random occult texts of varying credibility, and a cheap suit.

    Emily has several tattooes:
    - a sleeve of vines and flowers on her right upper arm and shoulder
    - a collection of stars on her left wrist, tapering up her arm
    - flowers on her right foot around her ankle
    - A crescent moof on her left shoulderblade

    Emily was perched sideways on the desk-chair, checking the advertisements through the online papers. She'd paid for some space to promote the business. It meant working a few weekends, but it was worth it for the extra business in the long run.

    Still, it was always worth checking they got put up right. She didn't want to be Emma again. That was a ball-ache.

    And that was when she saw it.

    "Wha...? 'The world is dark and growing darker....' oh shit. Not these guys again..." she groans. "We warned you. We had a deal, man!" The Crescent really wanted to live and let live.

    Muttering darkly, she fires off a text.

    Guys. Big problem. Those cult-guys are back and advertising in papers now. Anyone not know come on by and I can fill you in. Ems xoxo

    Still muttering she goes upstairs, gathers her ritual kit and begins summoning her blood crow.

    "Chief - those crazy cultists are still around and recruiting online in papers. Pulling peeps together asap to look into it. Don't Worry, we got this! Ems." As the Crow flies off Emily slouches back upstairs.

    "Urghh.... guess I'd better dedicate some pants...."

    Emily has dedicated pants, t-shirt and trainers (she's not wearing underwear), and an old tobacco pouch with 5 rolled cigarettes in it.

    Brigit did a lot of things, but reading the paper or roaming around online were not among them.

    Today, she was climbing. Again. Using the same gym in the city as she had before.

    Thus, Brigit does not get word about the cultists from the paper or the web. Instead, she hears about them while she is dressing following a shower at the gym after her phone buzzes.

    What? Cultists?

    Brigit had never been told about cultists by the pack before, but if Emily was texting her it meant she needed a little help. Thus, the Redeemed skipped past the usual regulars that she often had small talk with, referencing the need to head out quickly due to an appointment to those who asked. Then, the Once-Pure got in her Defender, put on her seat-belt, and shot a text back to Emily letting her know she was on the way.

    Then the Defender growled to life and began its journey.

    Due to the content of the text, Brigit is going to Emily's.

    Patrick was in bed, but awake. He'd woken up a little earlier and decided he'd take it slow today. Hit the studio later.
    Plus, the bed was warmer than usual as a result of the very successful date the night before. It was nice, although he knew he was probably a fluke to her. Who knew, for sure though? Fast forward a year from now and assuming he hadn't been gruesomely murdered or forced to move on or...Ah, who was he kidding?
    Take it for what it was: a nice night and a nice morning.
    Just as his eyes were getting heavy again, he could hear his phone buzzing from his pile of clothes on the floor across the room. He ignored it at first and started to drift before snapping out of it. Only like six people had his number, and most of them weren't "people" in the lower case. Sighing, he slipped out from between the sheets as quietly as possible and tip-toed over. He pulled the phone out, read the text and sighed again. He got dressed, left a note and headed out of her apartment. The last time they dealt with these douchebags they were all about peace and love; What gives?
    He replied to the message on his way out, telling the group he'd be at the garage in less than an hour.

    Church is wearing dedicated black clothes and carrying his phone, cigarette case full of sacred herbs, a small carving knife, his wallet and his cellphone. He also heads to Emily's.

    Matt is very tall,at seven feet,he draws stares and attention whether he is doing anything that warrants it or not. He's in his late teens or early twenties. His voices is deep. He moves well for such a big man, with some athletic training in evidence. His expression is generally always angry to some degree whether he is actively glaring or just generally scowling, lost in thought.

    Matt gets a google search alert when certain key words show up on the Internet. He glares at the oversized screen of his phone. He snarls. "Told them." he mutters.

    Then he calls Emily Makerith in liu of being able to easily contact his Alpha or Beta for that matter. Then he calls Nathaniel Dormur to tell him he'll pick him up on the way.

    Matt arrives at Emily Makerith's place of business, Makerith Motors and parks his big, vintage, black Hummer outside. Figures he can get a tune up and alignment while he's there.

    "Hey." he says by way of greeting. Despite his foul mood, he took the time to grab enough lamb tortellini to feed a party of twenty from Mulvaney's on the way over. Totally worth the price.

    The morning grows late and the sun continues to rise over Sacramento as Carillon Call begins to make moves.

    Outside the Primordial Temple


    It seems that Dawn and Dusk are more than metaphorical. A congregation of people slowly make their way out of the Primordial Temple. Little unifies them aside from the look and feeling that comes off them as they leave. Fullfilled, content, ready. Young and old, children and their parents or caretakers. Professionals and retirees. All truly are welcome here.

    There's something on the wind though, well a breeze. Beneath the smell of hot asphalt, under the scent of the river nearby, lingers the scent of fellow wolves. More than one for sure. Some of the congregation linger and some depart immediately. Then there's movement in the open door to the Temple.

    At Emily's

    As Matt rolls up in his hummer Emily's phone buzzes with a reply from Chris.

    At the marina, something's off. Let me know if you need me there.

    This.... Was a bad idea.

    No. Wait. This was a BRILLIANT idea!

    Ok. if this WORKED, it would be a great plan. Though he was pretty sure Emily would still slap him afterwards regardless. Still, the thought helped keep himself composed as he smelled the wolves, and tried to join in the group, very VERY happy for the first time in forever that he was new here- whoever these wolves were, they might not know about him yet, or his affiliations.

    He didn't know of this cult; he might be able to press on his occult knowledge... But thinking it through- Primordial Dawn. "Primordial" might very well have roots in the old tales regarding Father Wolf and Luna, from the very beginning- though the stories were so varied and numerous that such could be said about most things. "Dawn" was an interesting choice; most cults or lodges that Nathaniel knew of related to acts of werewolves- of which few were known to take place during the day... Nathaniel was overthinking things. He got the text of course- but he couldn't just leave now. Besides, this might lead to information the others needed- and if it got too bad, the wolf could risk the Shadow.

    He just had to stay calm. He could speak the cult lingo- play the game, keep low. Pretend to be a scared and anxious young wolf that wants more stability and an anchor in his life...

    Actually, Nathaniel might not have to pretend much at all. But this was what being a Shadow meant. Being wolf. No matter how much this terrified him.

    If ya want me to make rolls just hollar!

    The Garage


    Emily is tweaking something under the Mustang's hood when people start to arrive. She wipes her hands clean and closes the hood, and pops her cigarette back in her mouth.

    "Heeeeey guys. So, like, some of you saw these guys before when they were making banished spots in the Hisil with some kind of hedge magic." Emily scratches the back of her neck. "We had a bit of a chat with them - it's like they're trying to band lost people together - but they agreed to stop putting out those awful fliers. They don't know we're werewolves, but they know something's off."

    The Ithaeur blows a plume of smoke into the air. "So, the fact that they're still recruiting means something's still up. Now they might remember some of us. In fact I'll be offended if they don't. I'm unforgettable." She grins, then sniffs the air and licks her lips.

    "Ummm.... Matt? Did you, uh, bring a little something? Huh? Maybe?" She shuffles towards the Rahu, eyes lighting up. "What? We don't wanna get tired and out of energy if we need it!" She protests to everybody.
