After Jules was defenestrated, well the opposite of defenestrated we needed to act quickly. The act of killing a vampire per night did not stand well with me.
I put it to the Hound that as this is a masquerade breaking offense to me, he as our enforcer needed to take care of the situation.
This led to going and having a chat with the werewolves ( we now know it was not them that killed Jules thanks to Tabitha ) I let the Hound take the lead as it was his task to find this werewolf. The talk was interesting it told us a few things.
1. The Werewolf clan will not fight with us, we are on our own.
2. They fight something called the Wyrm
3. And how cute. As a thing of fighting the Wyrm they fight arachnids. (awwww the big scary tough werewolves fight the ow so scary iddy biddy arachnids. i kept this thought to myself in the presence of the werewolf leader as not to offend)
Being told by Tabitha earlier that the werewolves need to come into town for some shopping now and then and that they have not because of our informal agreement, I lifted the ban for shopping and Wyrm activities but they are to let us know if this happening at night and what part of the city as not to clash.
That over we finally got into action trying to find this vampire killer. The werewolves gave us a little insight into this rogue werewolf and how he fights and were he could be.
Following this information we came across and eerily quiet part of the city. Kaleb offered himself us as bait and went off to attract the werewolf. no sooner had he started to feed of a poor homeless man when a Humongous creature swooped down from above landing on Kaleb and sinking its massive mandibles into his chest. Like that Kaleb was down, it dawned on me that these things were the arachnids that the werewolves fight!. The rest of us either shot this thing or ran after it as it scaled the wall it had dropped from. I went to check on Kaleb to see if he survived the onslaught. He was unconscious so i assessed his wounds. There was this green puss/goo leaking from the massive holes in his chest. I rid his body of the goo and then went to get him something to feed on. Thankfully he had as a gesture off good faith to the werewolves gone and brought two rather large, evil and nasty looking rabbits so they could run and feed of them as they do but when it came to the crunch Kaleb had decided not to offer the wolf clan his offering.
The massive rabbits were luckily locked away in there own separate crates as not to rip each other apart as these monstrosities tend to do. I heaved the huge crates (like hefting a fully growen man in each hand ) over to Kaleb and used my personal reserves of blood to bolster my strength knowing I am going up against an opponent of great prowess. I then reached in to grab the rabbit hoping not to loose a hand in the process. My idea was to force the rabbit onto Kaleb's fangs and force him to drink but I do not know how they bread these Viscous rabbits in these here parts but the creature fought me hell to leather. Screw the spider the werewolves need to start hunting these spawn of satin rabbits and soon as i am sure they will be the dominate species on the planet soon.
After my terror encounter with the unnaturally cleaver and powerful rabbit i thought it wise not to unleash the second Terror Rabbit upon the earth. The spider had escaped with its life and we really needed to get Kaleb back to his home and he needed time to heal. With my limited knowledge of Vampire healing it seamed like Kaleb would rouse in two days time and he would be famished.
Thanks to Harry for providing the small hairy sacrifices needed, I timed it so we would fill his coffin with many rats just before Kaleb woke and frenzied, either through lack of blood or shear anger.
Kaleb arrived at the elysium later on that night looking a little worse for ware but he was up. Back on the hunt for the werewolf now two nights later and one vampire smaller in our little town. We wnt back to the same place to see what we could make out from the scene. Armand did his thing and started to peace together information. It led up deeper into the woods and Tabitha said that she saw spider webs everywhere and it must be the would of the wyrm and it looked very different than ours… Its a whole new world… apparently. I could not see anything she is talking about (did Tab get bit from the spider?) But between Tab and Armand they seam to be onto something. Lets see where it takes us.
