The following takes place between 10am and 10pm (game time); 1pm and 5pm (real time)
A major crisis was averted, agents. Well done. Report requested so we can work on security measures.
Preliminary report by Special Agent Moth (FBI#:SA818)
09:00 On site at Fallcrest Agency Building
Order received from Bauer to assemble a team and report for protective security detail to Agent Charlie Francis, Head of Security at Terra Angelus Concert.
09:15 Team Assembled
Agents assigned to security detail:
Team headed to the concert venue, passing by several young visitors to the town, thought to be ‘fans’ who had travelled to Fallcrest for the concert.
- NOTE:Many of these fans were seen drinking vials of ‘TA FAN’ and wearing detachable tails.
09:50 Agents arrived at the concert venue. Stalls were being set up and the stage was being built.
Agents noticed Resonating Crystals on the stage.
10:00 Agents located Charlie Francis in the backstage area, and reported for duty.
Also present were Terra Angelus and his manager Harry the Halfling.
Agent Charlie Francis was engaged in a heated discussion about a death threat which had been delivered to Terra Angelus that morning.
The note was written in newspaper cuttings and clearly stated that the murder would take place at 10pm that evening.
Upon further questioning Harry the Halfling revealed that there had been other, similar notes in the past, but he had chosen to keep these hidden from Terra Angelus
The note was examined by agents and upon closer inspection, it was discovered that there was a food stain on the paper.
This was identified by Djinnfarsi as being Barbecued Displacer-Beast, a well-known speciality at The Three Cats
11:00 Agents split up
Agents Djinnfarsi and Leo headed to The Three Cats taking the evidence with them.
12:00 Djinnfarsi and Leo arrived at The Three Cats.
The manager of the tavern, Jander was shown the death threat, and recalled that a guest, who checked in as ‘Mr Smith’ had ordered the Barbecued Displacer-Beast the previous evening.
- NOTE ‘Mr Smith’ is a suspected alias.
‘Mr Smith’ had checked in to one of the rooms but was not in the building at that time.
Agents decided to return at a later time to question him.
12:00 Moth and Thraeanya searched the concert site for any clues. They questioned a stall-holder named Gary who was found to be selling Multi-Phonic Amulets – Mark 3 which played Terra Angelus hits.
This new ‘MP3’ device was unknown to the agents, and thought to be a potential weapon.
A device was handed over to the Fallcrest Battle Initiative for further examination.
13:00 Agents regrouped at Fallcrest Agency Building
The ‘MP3’ player was inspected by Bishop but found to be harmless.
14:00 Agents walked to Fallcrest Market to search for leads
14:30 On approach to the Fallcrest Market agents found a huge commotion at Graff’s Jewellery and found a young girl trying to steal from his stall.
The girl was let off with a caution
- NOTE Shoplifting Crime Report filed.
15:30 Agents were approached by Dodger, a known local informant, who revealed that he knew a young man, by the name of Brossan, who had been paid a large sum of money to deliver a note to Terra Angelus
The young Dodger believed that this exchange had taken place the previous evening at The Three Cats
16:00 After finding no one home at Brossan’s house where he lived with his mother, agents returned to The Three Cats to see if Smith had returned.
- NOTE: Jander was displaying eratic behavior, and seemed to be suffering from amnesia when Smith was mentioned.
Upon being let into ‘Mr Smith’s’ room, a body was discovered, thought to be that of Brossan, although not formally identified.
Cause of death unknown.
- NOTE: The body was later found to be missing. In future, Agents are to follow protocol and remove bodies immediately.
Also discovered at the crime scene were an MP3 Player, several vials of Limited edition TA FAN, a defaced poster and 7 small gems. These were taken as evidence.
Moth suspected there was some Arcana attached to the gems and suggested they should be examined further.
17:30 Agents returned to Fallcrest Agency Building taking Gems to the Lab to be inspected by top Agency scientist, Bishop.
He felt positive that the gems could be used for a ritual of some kind and would need to come from four different sources.
He was unsure as to what the TA FAN contained but suggested asking Old Hacker who would be at the concert.
18:30 Suspected Murder
Arriving at the concert, agents witnessed Charlie Francis running towards them shouting “It’s in the Demons Tale!”, when he was struck in the back by a crossbow bolt and fell down dead.
Suspect was persued and taken out.
Suspect was later indentified as shadow-runner Barel
- NOTE: During the assault Leo and Thraeanya appeared to have had their minds wiped, and could not recall the assailant.
A key was discovered on the body of the deceased. Djinnfarsi identified the coat of arms on the key as being that of Lord Dunham
18:30 Agents split up due to time constraints
Moth used her changeling powers to disguise herself as Barel and headed to the estate of Lord Dunham with the key.
Djinnfarsi took the body of Barel back to Fallcrest Agency Building
Leo and Thraeanya stayed at the concert to search the area.
19:00 On route to headquarters, Djinnfarsi suffered from a temporary memory-loss, as Barel somehow regenerated and escaped.
19:15 Djinnfarsi was appraoched by Dodger who informed him that he had witnessed Barel escape and chase Moth in the direction of the Dunhams Estate.
Djinnfarsi and Dodger hurried to Dunham’s Estate.
19:30 Agent Moth discovered a secret passage off the wine cellar, which could be opened by the key, and found a huge plate-mailed shadow creature inside.
Disguised as Barel, Moth was able to engage the creature, later found out to be named Thannu, in dialogue
It was clear that Barel was working for Thannu.
Her cover was blown when the real Barel showed up.
A struggle ensued until Djinnfarsi and Dodger arrived, and all enemies were taken out.
A further 7 Gems were uncovered and taken as evidence.
19:30 Suspected murder of Harry the Halfling
Agents Leo and Thraeanya reported witnessing him appear to “fall from the sky”.
Concert staff reported the sound technicians had not been seen for several hours.
Missing persons file opened
20:00 All agents reconvened at concert venue.
Following an earlier lead from Charlie Francis, agents began a stop-and-seach on civilians, looking specifically inside detachable demons tales for potential weapons.
- NOTE: During the random stop-and-search, an illegal substance was found and confiscated.
20:30 Old Hacker was found at the concert and questioned regarding the Limited Edition TA FAN, as this substance was still believed to be related to the death threat.
He was able to inform us that the drink contained ‘Astral Diamonds’ and ‘Vampire Dust’, both rare and illegal substances.
21:00 Agents took the TA FAN to Fallcrest Agency Building to have Agent Bishop confirm these results with laboratory tests.
At this point, earlier evidence was re-examined, leading to the discovery by Leo that the defaced poster found at the earlier crime scene (which had 3 holes in it) could be placed over a map of Fallcrest to reveal three points, possible locations of the remaining set of Gems.
21:15 It was ascertained that the final location was the Fallcrest Library, with the concert venue itself being the focal point of the ritual.
21:30 Agents raced to the Fallcrest Library where Thraeanya discovered a book which opened a secret trapdoor into a basement.
Agents were able to overcome shadow necromancer, Fatale and several other assailants and took possession of a 3rd set of Gems.
21:50 Agents arrived back at the concert venue, and sensing Arcana in the coming from the sound booth, were able to locate a bomb containing the final set of Gems.
21:55 During finale number, The Demons Tale ;
- NOTE: In future, agents should think outside the box! (Tail/Tale)
Led by Thraeanya agents began to place the remaining Gems in a sequence to disarm the bomb.
21:58 To buy time, Moth was able to cut all power to the stage for 1 minute.
21:59 BOMB DISARMED
22:00 Terra Angelus seemed to disappear at the end of the number. It is suspected that this was a stage-illusion but a Missing Persons case has been opened.
Another exemplary report, Agent Moth. This agency needs more like you. We shall be taking further investigation into this ritual and your detailed descriptions will help immensely.
Keep up the good work.
