Whoofa! Just checking in, to let everyone know I'm still alive haha!

The plan is to start things back up in September.

In the meantime, I started a massive new project, that will eventually lead into a new Fantasy BHB game system, following a Fantasy Novel for publishing.

Writing a Novel is one of the last major milestones on my bucket list and I'm determined to do it this time around!

At some point, I'll also start posting the World Building for the setting here on BHB in private threads (don't worry, you'll all have access). I'm open for input in that regard, and would certainly credit anyone who contributes (including monetary compensation) in the event it gets published.

Perhaps my weakest area in storytelling is dialog, so I'll be seeking a ghostwriter for help with dialog between characters.

In the RGP system aspect, I'll also need artists.

The rate I can foresee paying contributors would be 2 cents per word for setting material, 3 cents per word for dialog, and 10-20$ per art piece.

Anyway, that's probably my second biggest distraction right now haha!

We'll see how it goes...  ;D

Hope to have more time in August too.  :)

When we get back to it, what about two side quests?

1. Robor, Beats, and UsdiYona "Proactively" taking out the two remaining vampires, when they trip Emend's alarm by returning to their Haven.

2. The Saint and Emend, meeting Robert Swane about the potential buyer of The Heart of Flies.

Also hope folk will still be around when we're ready to start back up!

Since Robor is so adamant about being pro-active, I'm going to create a Robor and Beat's Epilog where they take out the two vampires (Easy as pie).

Conversation of One will be Saint/Killer's Epilog & Emend will get a small one where he is approached by his mentor to discuss Angelic Legacies (which Emend turns down this round haha!) .

Tournament went well. It was also a memorial to the promoter's son, who drown at a church event two months ago and who's body took 8 days to find.

It was sad but profoundly unifying and intensified the usual comeraderie surrounding the event.

Once the competition started, it was a blast.

Lady Z and I are old. We were both twice the age of everyone in our divisions haha!

Still, she took 3rd in weapons with a double nunchaku form and 4th in sparring.

My 9 year old daughter took 3rd sparring in her division, and 4th in open-handed forms.

I did a breaking demo, trying to laterally chop through two house bricks with a knife and chop.

Got one but only chipped the second.

In the old man's division, I got 1st for weapons with e same double nunchaku form Lady Z did and second in sparring.

Too old for this haha!

“Get out!”

The Killer finds his chanting suddenly interrupted by… himself?

The words had just slid out of his throat in a coarse whisper, almost as if on their own.

Looking up, his confusion resolved itself. Across from him was himself, eyes burning with righteous fury.

“So you’re finally awake?” Killer said in a disturbingly playful tone. “Took your time. It’s fine though, I figured out a new way to have some fun. You can go back to sleep.”

“Get out. Get out of my head, get out of my body, get out of my life, you farking filth. GET OUT!” Saint shouted angrily, running towards the Killer and striking at him – only to have his fist pass through his mildly amused alter ego.

“You shouldn’t treat our body like that, self-abuse is seen poorly in heavenly circles.”

Saint clenched his teeth as he answered, “This is my body, not yours demon.”

Killer shrugged and gestured to Saint – “Then make your move. I’ve been wanting to cede control back to you for nearly a month now. Your priest life is boring. You’re the one who’s pretending to be held captive while you’re hiding in your own head.”

Killer then looked slyly at the Saint; “Could it be that you’ve wanted me to do what I’ve been doing all along?”

“Why do you think I would ever fall prey to the lies of a demon?” Saint shot back; “I know you, I know what you are, and this ends now. I silence your use of the power given to me by God, and soon I will take back myself. You cannot hold me back forever, and when I regain control the angels will purge you from me.”

“Leave now, while you still have a chance, and perhaps you will have a few more hours to live before I hunt you down.”

Killer smiled sadly at Saint; “Where do you think I’m going to go? I’ve only ever had one home, and it’s here”. He tapped his temple twice for emphasis.

“You’re lying to me again.”

“What do you think my name is, Saint?”

“I don’t care, I will erase it and you from history.”

“You’ve already tried.”

“If only I’d succeeded, how many lives I could have saved.”

“I’m not a demon.”

“You’re murderous filth AND possessing my body - of course you're a demon!”

Saint took a deep breath, trying to calm himself, but it clearly wasn’t working. Killer could see the holy man trembling with pure, unadulterated rage.

“I hate you so much that it burns me.”  Saint confessed; “When I think of the things you’ve done with my hands, I feel like every nerve in my body is screaming with pain, ordering me to leap at you and rip you to pieces. You are a monster, you are disgusting, you are evil, you are –”

“I am Giles Moreau.”

“A LIAR!” Saint screamed out.

“You’ve locked me away for so long Saint,” the Killer went on unfazed, “it’s unhealthy. Our mother sold our soul and it damaged us; but you can’t deny that part of yourself; you can’t throw the darkest parts of your mind into a dungeon and ignore them forever – it doesn’t work that way. The more you deny me, the worse this will get.”

“Accept me. Become me. We don’t have to be two halves. I’ll play along with your angel friends, and we can hunt together, kill together, save together. We’ll do what we have to. I don’t want to fight you Saint, you’re me after all.”

“You’ve spent too long in my skin;” Saint scoffed, “and it’s driven you mad demon. Especially if you think a servant of God would forgive the sins you’ve committed. I’ve seen your thoughts, as you lived with my fellow disciples; I know your lies and how you can lie; you will never deceive me.”

“I’ve told you what you have to do Saint. You’ll never get rid of me, it just doesn’t work that way. Until then, if you’re not going to do anything then you should quiet down – I’ve got work to do.”

As the Killer leaned back over the corpse and began the chanting again, he found himself completely unable to muster up any magical energy whatsoever.

“The power of creation was given to me, not you, monster.” Saint chided.

“I guess it was, wasn’t it?” Killer remarked. “I was wondering when God would realize his mistake.”

Saint grimaced. “He took too long.”

“Well,” Killer suggested, “until you get back, I hope you’ll still let me use it for missions. I kind of need it to keep your idiot teammates alive.”

The Saint didn't answer.

"I'll take that as an angry yes. I'll be going home now, we have some pretty urgent business to deal with in the morning. Would you like to wish the bishop good night?"

Again no answer. The hallucination of Saint was gone, but anger and disapproval continued to flash through the Killer's mind.

Well, this is getting interesting.

Further edits -

Angelic Legacies

1st Attainment
Halo (Gnosis 3; Integrity 8)
The Angelic Halo can shine forth at will to convince others of the disciple's holy calling. It can be as overt as a blazing glorious ring of white fire above the head; or a bit more subtle, such as a ray of sunlight shining down through the clouds to spotlight the disciple. Even more subtle could be a healthy glow and aura of peace and calm.

Regardless of the visual intensity, the Halo lasts a Scene and bestows the Gift of Tongues on the disciple, as well as allowing him to add Composure to the following Social rolls: Animal Ken, Empathy, Expression, Intimidation, Persuasion (excepting fast talk & seduction), and Socialize (excepting carousing).

2nd Attainment
Wings of Light (Gnosis 5; Integrity 9)
As Flight (Forces •••••), but with a set Speed of 15. Additionally, the sheer grandeur of Wings of Light grants a Bonus to Presence equal to Gnosis.

3rd Attainment
Ascension (Gnosis 7; Integrity 10 -OR- Integrity 9+ with Martyrdom)
Become an Angel

Final Attainment
Greater Ascension (Gnosis 9; Both Ruling Arcanum Above 5; Have Successfully Ascended a Disciple)
Become an Archangel

True, though I think at some point, you would stop losing integrity via seeing something horrible.

Maybe, have that one only able to affect you once?

It is the only one the character has no self control over.

You can use the Legacies more than once per day. Also you don't lose them once you have gained them, though perhaps going full anti-paladin would probably color how they looked/worked later.

Disciples / Conversation Of One

Killer pulled up a chair and sat beside the Bishop, where he lay on his bed.

It was well past midnight. The urge had been driving Killer wild for the past two days; he’d been on the very cusp of turning his need to kill on Faith – but he wasn’t sure he wanted to do that just yet, as it would be hard to explain the girl’s death to the others. She was something to kill once he knew he was going to be found out.

Earlier today, Killer had told Miguel to go practice his possession skills, for when he would provide the ghost conquistador a new body, now that the Killer had acquired the skills necessary to do so. He wanted Miguel to get used to operating foreign flesh. Or at least, that was the excuse.

Killer had scried out the Bishop's location in preparation for the hunt, and on the way to the cathedral, he’d activated his life sights to keep careful track of all the people in the surrounding area. He’d forsaken his usual priest getup and had altered large and crucial parts of his facial structure in preparation – he now had dirty blond hair, a strong jaw, large cheekbones and tanned skin.

No way anyone would recognize him, should he accidently get spotted lurking around the Bishop's house.

Once Killer got to where his prey was located, he looked through one of the windows and began manipulating the shadows on the other side, having them unlatch the window for him to open.

From there, he cast human minion to usurp control of the Bishop’s body, not wanting to give him a chance to wake up and complicate anything. Once inside he walked up to him in his bed and pressed an elongated fingernail into his neck, injecting an extremely potent paralytic venom he’d fashioned using fantasia.

The man’s breathing turned quick and shallow, becoming panicked - as someone who could barely breathe - gasping for air. The Killer noted how the Bishop's eyes trembled, as if he was trying to force them open.

Killer leaned down and whispered into his captive's ear – “I’ve learned a few new tricks recently; I’ve been itching to try them out – they’re not very practical in a real fight you see; they are a bit more complicated and not even as effective as the others, but damn if they’re not satisfying to see in action.”

The old man released a weak moan, unable to shape any words with his frozen jaw.

Killer then pulled the old man from the bed and laid him out on the floor – he didn’t want to stain the sheets in a way that would bring his death into question.

Pulling out his prayer beads, Killer carefully traced them along the Bishop's skin – first on his legs, then on his stomach and arms, all while chanting the words for death, rot, destruction, pain. The rot spell twisted the helpless victim's bones; his flesh turning black; his body swelling as his blood thickened; his teeth beginning to fall out. His skin then shrunk, like drying rawhide - and where it got too tight, it simply split open. For all the pain he suffered, the Bishop still couldn't muster anything more than the weak moan.

Killer next drew the prayer beads back towards the Bishop's heart, and there he splayed them across the man's chest and pressed his hand down. This time, he reached into the Bishop's fading pattern and began to burn it - drawing mana from the old man into himself.

Picking the prayer beads back up, Killer ran them across the shriveled corpse and reversed all the visible damage to the body, then put them away.

“He died of a heart attack in his sleep,” Killer spoke to himself quietly, as he puts the Bishop back into his bed - tucking him in as he would a child.

“They’ll say he barely felt a thing. His veins were clear of any poison, his house was undamaged. My most horrific kill yet.”

So why don't I feel a goddamn thing?

“I can't kill worse than this. I can't hurt them any more than that. No one can. Is it the target? No, I feel like even Sarapheen wouldn't be enough at this point.”

Wait, Sarapheen!

Suddenly the Killer remembered how he'd initially planned on getting rid of the angel - setting up an ambush in the cathedral basement and sealing her soul so that she couldn't reincarnate.

It doesn't have to end when they die does it?

Suddenly, the Killer found himself filled with something the likes of which he hadn't felt in months, and he knew he had stumbled onto the right path.

Going through the Bishop's kitchen, he took a small tupperware container - not wanting to take something people would notice was missing.

Returning back to the Bishop's room, he laced his prayer beads around the container and placed them both on the chest. Maybe what Killer needed was to start collecting souls as trophies. The thrill of having to hide something so sinister from the others might reinvigorate his zest for life.

Beginning the spell, he hoped that it wasn't too late to still capture the dead Bishop's before it had departed the mortal coil...

Without Advanced Prolongation, the spell is basically only good for gathering a bunch of spirits for a task and then it ends. You need at least Gnosis 4 for it to be of any real use, as you would currently be considered a Rank 3 Spirit with Gnosis 3. That means that only weak spirits would currently follow you.

So...

Seems like we hit a bit of a slow down, as the direction of the game is not as clear-cut as it used to be. This would actually be a decent place to break off between the next Chapter, if'n everyone feels like doing XPs now of course.

We just need to have a group descision about whether to bother with the two Belial's Brood vampires or to let them go for now. Emend will know if they ever return anyway, and by then, the PCs will be leveled up enough to nuke them pretty easily.

As for Robor's deal with the devil, he's actually quite screwed.

His bargain was to get his payment after he recovered all the pieces of Rakshasa's treasure and the ability to sense their locations. However, Hitler's typewriter was destroyed, rendering Robor's side of the bargain unfulfillable. This means that Rakshasa never has to worry about actually paying Robor AND got promoted from Rank 3 to Rank 4 (for coercing an Awakened into a deal). Rank 5 is Demon Prince by the way (only one more to go haha!).

As for the next Chapter, it deals with the Heart of Flies, etc...

What does everyone think?

29
Depends on the payoff haha!

Good luck either way though.  :)

With a little time on the computer, Emend was able to access Robert Swane's call logs. They appeared to be pretty mundane, being daily interactions between business clients, the office of Blume and Blumenthal, and his wife.

Nothing stood out as unusual, even when Emend spent time rooting out the clients themselves.

Using forces, Emend was able to see the account of the person that had called the Saint - a Robert Swane, using an AT&T cell service in the Arlington Virginia area. Trying to find the guy's call logs however, was a little more difficult, as there was an overwhelming number of places they could be on the internet.

Emend got the feeling that he could get what he was looking for faster, if he could actually connect to the guy's cell via a call. Baring that, he could try spending time at his computer, trying to root the info out - or maybe try to tap into the guy's phone while he was making a call himself.

Beats was able to pass between the stone pylons, leaving Robor to follow.  Fortunately, the mud things didn't seem motivated enough to leave the crater; and just sort of slopped back into the mire.

Using the personal items taken from the subway car, Beats focused for a few minutes, before locking onto the location of the two Belial's Brood vampires. They were in The City Without Foundation, far to the southeast, which would be the tenebrous reflection of the physical world's Washington DC.

Scrying in, Beats could see 'Vesh' - the middle-aged gothic rock-star vampire in the black leathers, frilly operatic blouse, and fishnet highlights. This was the one that had used blood magic to open the way into the vampire's haven under the nightclub.

The King Leonidas reject was also nearby, being the mature overly-muscled man in the cheesy leisure suit (and bling) that the other vampires had referred to as 'Ductus'.

Both lay sleeping on ornate marble slabs in an unusually bright and large atrium of some kind. They were surrounded by carefully arranged plantings of flowers and small colorful trees - the area being quite pleasant and park-like with marble benches, slabs, and trickling coi ponds filled with odd fish-like spirit-things. This appeared to be one of the upper levels of a massive multi-layered tower, open in the center.

Looking into the aerie of the eight hundred foot high tower, Beats could see other levels, both above and below. Each concourse was expansive and palatial - being occupied by a multitude of demonic-looking denizens. Some looked like guardians, some like stewards, while others carried themselves with the haughty airs of nobility.

There even appeared to be human slaves here and there, as well as other creatures more animalistic and base in nature and appearance.

Way down at the bottom, on the main floor, Beats could see a large bazaar of some kind, where transactions and trade of all sorts were being made between the hundreds of the hellish minions.

"Deal!" the hound hissed with supreme delectation, abruptly taking on shadows from the surrounding area. They cloyed around the monster for a moment and then seeped into its flesh - transforming it into something different.

The large Egyptian Mastiff's body changed from canid to humanoid, while the head remained the same - only the ears elongating to stand twice as tall as before. A royal Egyptian robe with blue and gold nemes head crown formed on him as well, while a long hooked rod of lapis lazuli and gold appeared in the air nearby.

The seven foot tall Pharaoh-looking thing reached out to grasp it - laughing.

"I AM RAKSHASA! HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!"

A sudden shame shot through Robor, as he instinctively realized that by making a deal with this devil, he had somehow made it even more powerful than it had before.

Rather than feel guilty about it however, he managed to convince himself that he really hadn't had any choice, and that it was somehow... for the better?

Robor could also sense the general direction of each piece of the demon's treasure, though it was hard to fix on an exact location, across the barrier between worlds. He suspected that he could pinpoint each item precisely when on the same plane.

Rakshasa meanwhile, smiled, looking down at the two disciples still stuck in the muddy crater.

"When you have gathered it all, then I will come and fulfill my part of our bargain. You may now leave the circle. A'nekh Djet!"

With that, the demon teleported away.

The mud spirits did not stop their plodding pursuit of Robor and Beats, at Rakshasa's departure however, mindlessly continuing to follow as Beats led them in circles.

"Stalking?!? Harrumph!" the regal canine huffed, "I spun a web and waited for someone to fly into it. Nothing more."

"So then, is it just you?" he asked Robor, "or your friend too?"

"You agree to recover all the pieces of my collection? During which time I will grant the power to unerringly know their exact whereabouts. And after receipt, I agree to serve for one hundred and one years as the guardian of a location and treasures of your choosing."

Once again, Beats was unable to overcome the potency of the stone pylon's ward and ban.

Fortunately, the mud creatures were pondering and slow. It was an easy matter to outmaneuver them in the huge expanse of the boggy crater - and they seemed too stupid to actually split up in any attempt to corral or flank the disciples.

"What?!?" the mastiff hound scoffed at Robor's question; "Gads no! I guard treasures! ...Though, I suppose exceptions could be made to guard a person; but that would suggest I am a 'bodyguard' spirit, which I emphatically am not."

"Best you just give me an area to guard and some treasures to go with it - so as to avoid any potential confusion."
