    There might be a Banisher on the run - worse: on the hunt for Sacramento's finest - and for a lack of more information the small task-force of two Mystagogues and the First Talon has decided to return to the place where everything happened. It was one of Sacramento's better neighbourhoods, big properties guarded by cast iron fences or hedges and lavish houses or even estates.
    This time they had no trouble finding (and seeing) the house located at the address Crypto had once provided them - whatever spell had been used to make the place seem more unassuming had apparently run out completely by now.

    The good news were that it hadn't been sold yet, so maybe the garden and what could be found therein was still untouched. It was late enough to give the Mages some privacy and some cover to do some digging. Maybe they could find more leads connected to the madman here?

    Belle Corn Phoenyx your plot starts here.

    Always park far enough away that you aren't conspicuous but close enough that you can sprint to your vehicle if you need to get away fast.

    The red motorcycle has done exactly that as Phonyx dismounts and begins walking the block and a half along to the address. Despite the California summer she has her coat over the top - mostly to conceal the weapons the Arrow is carrying in case this does turn out to be a showdown against a Banisher.

    She idly runs over the spells best suited to counter-magic in her mind. A Mage was a most dangerous foe, and countering spells would need her to be quick on her draw. Not knowing how skilled Belle or Corn were in Prime or the arcana of the target dropped this firmly at her feet.

    The Arrow secrets herself so she can be concealed but watch the house - and spot when the others arrive.

    Corn arrives at the scene. Earlier in the day, in his sanctum to take advantage of his Hallow, he has used the Sybil Sight and has given himself Unseen Aegis (Matter Armor).

    Phoenyx waited for a few moments, looking up and down the street to see if everything was clear.

    Slowly, she moved out over to Corn.

    "Is this definitely the place?" she asked, looking up at the building.

    With her eyes equipped with Prime magic to detect unseemly magical disturbances, and a little bit of Fate magic whirling around her to grant some minor luck, the Warlock parks her car a few blocks back and joins Corn and Phoenyx. She's dressed comfortably in shorts and a tank top, clearly interested in being quick and maneuverable. "Hey gang! Find anything so far" Admittedly she's a bit sheepish from having kind of botched her initial Scrying attempt, but she's ready and willing to be of use today.

    Corn apparently handled this operation on a 'need-to-know' basis - and Phoenyx apparently didn't need to know much more.

    With Belle arriving they had their small task force complete, so they could plan their next steps.

    Belle and Corn don't forget to spend the Mana for your improvised non-ruling spells.

    The First Talon gave Belle a small smile and looked at the Mysterium couple she was with. "Alright, let's go."

    She began making her way up the drive, keeping an eye out for any security cameras. She tries the main entrance to let herself in.

    "Welcome!" Corn said to Belle with a smile. "We just arrived; you're just fashionably late."
    As Phoenyx moved to the door, Corn was looking around for the other mage and trying to make sure they were not spotted or followed. "Do you see or sense anything Belle?" he asked in a low voice.

    Wits + Composure, without any penalties, to see if sleepers or others spot us. I don't know what penalties are there.

    Glad to be appreciated regardless of punctuality, Belle takes her cue to reach out with her Supernal Senses...

    failure


    So far her eyes, even gifted with the veil-piercing sight beyond sight, don't detect anything. But maybe the Warlock is just on edge? "Nope, nothing so far."

    She moves up behind Phoenyx and Corn, keeping her voice low. "I've been thinking about what you said, about the guy 'throwing his voice' at you." She says to Corn. "That sounds like Mind stuff. And that doesn't really depend on distance."
