Okay, so if you’re not in my Mage game, probably none of this will make any sense at all to you.
Just had a fun, if somewhat low energy game session with loupyone. Rhys got to have a personal “chat” with the Hierarch who tried to at once make a showing of being concerned and at the same time intimidate Rhys. I think both worked, Bannaker isn’t an especially nice guy.
After that he headed back to the Hallow, called up p01t3rg3ist and they went to work on Constructum, using the information he gleaned from the “ring sight” spell. It took some work (we had a investigation montage that was great fun) but Rhys eventually found the seal of one of the creators. He dumped some serious mana into it (seven pawns) and the seal opened, revealing the “brain”. A thousand golden threads, each finer than a spider silk and all of them interlocking to form some kind of clockwork mechanism. This of course lead to the great scientific insight of “huh, that’s strange” followed by a beer as the camera started filming the threads to try and create a model. I think the hard drive is going to fill up first.
And finally, Rhys asked p01t3rg3ist to look at the laptop Rhys took from the Seer sanctum. Weird shit on it. A camera program by Bay Area alarms forwarding the video capture to a static IP address. Okay normal enough. The other program, however was a proprietary medical monitoring software developed by Bay Area Advatatech, Ltd. which was what the 53rd was using to monitor the status of their “patients”.
All in all, good stuff. Rhys learned quite a bit. I just hope it wasn’t too dry as I didn’t have the energy I like to put into games.
