Suddenly Scion

Introduction (Part 3)

Roxanne Arian’s Diary:

The surprises dont stop coming. That in a way is a good thing, we cant have life become boring and repetitive. However, being in the dark so often is rather frustrating. I mentioned previously how we had gone searching for the person who hired the car which was watching us when we were being attacked by Shinobi (As my Japanese friend Ayumu corrects me). This S.U. Denim can be tracked to one of the upper class hotels in town. I dont know why he/she would be there, Ayumu says its a place thats good for hosting meetings between businesses as well as other activities. Makes me wonder if this is a case of contract jobs? Heard about them in movies. After everything I have seen, I wonder if i should start treating life like a movie.
Ciara, a young woman of Irish descent, has an ability to summon a murder of crows. Intelligent crows, which makes it all the more disconcerting. I am glad that I have a better idea of how the world works, otherwise i would forever be paranoid about birds. She summoned this flock to help us keep a watch out for S.U. Denim, though I am not entirely sure how subtle a murder of crow is.
Our group managed to find the room where Denim was supposed to be, only to find it empty. Talvi, our Finnish Mountie companion, went to search the room, when a Japanese gentleman and a group of henchmen entered into the room. It was at this point that one of Ciara’s crows informed her that there was a person matching the description
of S.U. Denim running down the fire escape. Without further ado, Talvi disappeared in a blur, much like Flash; whilst Ciara jumped out the window. I ran off after Talvi, but wasnt as fast. Of course at this point, the fire alarm goes off, but I think that was Ayumu trying to evacuate people inside from being harmed by whatever was to happen next.
Talvi managed to reach the bottom of the stairs to block off Denims escape, while Ciara managed to leap mid air onto the opposite building! I did not witniss it, but the group of henchmen tried to follow Ciara out of the window, revealing themselves to be shinobi, in an attempt to chase after Ciara, presumably still interested in her cloak. Ciara jumped once again onto the fire escape, level with Denim. When the shinobi landed on the ground (No hint of damage…I call bullshit), they rushed up the fire escape after Ciara, who had managed to intercept Denim.
Denim turned out to be a woman! Well, shouldnt be surprised, women are capable of being as dodgy as men, no surprise there. Still, it was strange. I heard talking, then Ciara ran off away from Denim and up the staircase. I didnt want Denim to flee so I used a few acrobatic tricks to make it down to her level just as she slammed the fire escape door shut.
Talvi, who had been taking care of the Shinobi, rushed passed me, slaming the door open. As i ran, Ciara jumped passed, doing a very good impersonation of a pinball as she bounced off the walls, retreating into the distance. As i ran, Ciaras murder fly passed once more. I really need to see if there is a way i could match the othes uber speed.
It took a while, dodging the crowds of people fleeing out from the supposed fire. A few were panicing about a giant bear on the fire escape, but I figured that was just hysterics. I turned the corner to see 4 large, what appeared to be, men fighting both Talvi and Ciara. Ciara’s murder were flying passed the group, obviously still following Denim.
Taking inspiration from a film, I ran forwards, used 1 of the men knocked prone by Ciara as a spring board, flipped over another and used the maneuver to hurl him down the corridor away from my Irish companion. A flash of insight allowed me to realise what was off about the men. They werent men, but Ulfen, the wolf-men spawn of old Nordic tales. Strong and tough, very much a trouble.
We fought for a while, until 3 of the Ulfen turned and ran, muttering something about Auntie. Talvi managed to capture and interrogate 1 Ulfen who spilled the beans on Miss Denim. She was a daughter of the Ulfen’s grandfather (Likely Loki if i am any judge) and was interested in finding the artifact in question. She was a good Aunt to them (Didnt kill any of them when they messed up and they love fast food apparently) so they were loyal. That didnt stop him from spilling his guts on the her. We let him go after he said everything he could, we didnt have the heart to kill him.
The lift doors were open, though there as no lift there…

Introduction (Part 2)

Roxanne Arian‘s Diary:
I thought learning my mother was actually a Goddess would be the strangest day in my life. Turns out that I have a very poor imagination. I am rather glad that I started reading those fantasy and theology books. Not sure if i would believe have the stuff going on around me.
I met up with 3 other people today. All children of various deity’s (Another sobering thought. Just because mother’s a member of the Persian Divinity doesnt mean that is the only one around) and all told to meet here. As we were introducing ourselvs, we were attacked by Ninja. Yes, I am not kiddint, Ninja. Apparently, they are after a cloak, an ancient artifact of great power. One of my companions, Ciara, has a cloak, but we arent convinced that is the one. Ayumu, a daughter of Japanese decent, managed to talk them out of fighting and made them go away. A very pursuasive woman. We decided to keep in touch, but we separated after that (One of our number, a Canadian woman, went after the Ninja, exclaiming they would pay for damaging her coat). I went home and did some research on the artifact in question. I managed to find several references, but after a while, i felt as if i were back on the front, in the sights of a sniper. I fell back on my training, contacting the others to let them know what i knew and left the house quickly. As i drove off, I was sure I saw a figure in my room for an instant.
We met up at Ayumu’s apartment, or at least that was the plan. the Ninja struck then, causing mayhem and lots of property damage. We managed to get away, but a few cars exploded, including Ayumu’s own. I am impressed by my companions capabilities. truly, children of the gods.
We talked in a cafe, going over the fight and what we knew. the others had some ideas about what i knew, but we still were in the dark. It was decided that we would separate and investigate the situation using our own resources.
I decided to meet up with my Peri friend. Though expensive, i do like her company. And it was very much worth it. She pointed out that the letter telling me to meet with the others was a fake, not from my mother.
Another point of good knews was Ayumu managed to track down the numberplate of a car which was acting suspisious during our initial meeting. She had a name and a place, so we decided to go investigate. I hope that things can become enlightened soon. I dont like being left in the dark.

Welcome to your campaign!
A blog for your campaign

Wondering how to get started? Here are a few tips:

1. Invite your players

Invite them with either their email address or their Obsidian Portal username.

2. Edit your home page

Make a few changes to the home page and give people an idea of what your campaign is about. That will let people know you’re serious and not just playing with the system.

3. Choose a theme

If you want to set a specific mood for your campaign, we have several backgrounds to choose from. Accentuate it by creating a top banner image.

4. Create some NPCs

Characters form the core of every campaign, so take a few minutes to list out the major NPCs in your campaign.

A quick tip: The “+” icon in the top right of every section is how to add a new item, whether it’s a new character or adventure log post, or anything else.

5. Write your first Adventure Log post

The adventure log is where you list the sessions and adventures your party has been on, but for now, we suggest doing a very light “story so far” post. Just give a brief overview of what the party has done up to this point. After each future session, create a new post detailing that night’s adventures.

One final tip: Don’t stress about making your Obsidian Portal campaign look perfect. Instead, just make it work for you and your group. If everyone is having fun, then you’re using Obsidian Portal exactly as it was designed, even if your adventure log isn’t always up to date or your characters don’t all have portrait pictures.

That’s it! The rest is up to your and your players.
