09 March 2014 - According to Rags
Slowly kindred gathered together again. Strange rumors and threats to local kindred caused a sense of uneasiness to be felt in the domain.
A number of Gangrel were present, and after some brief socializing they took off for a Clan Meeting. When they returned, Montgomery Grant had been "volun-told" to stand as Primogen for the Gangrel. We welcome the Voice of the Gangrel to the Primogen Council, and am pleased to add his Voice to those that support me as Master Harpy.
During a brief court.. the Gangrel known as Jasper, Jacob & Doctor Deliberata were all acknowledged. Elder Goring of the Nosferatu also Courteously sought acknowledgement in Her Majesty's domain.
Rumors of a Northeast Convocation have begun circulating. It has been said that Her Majesty, Prince Fournier, will be making a call for a regional conclave to take place sometime this May. Elder Biltmore of Clan Malkavian is rumored to be opening up the Danvers Asylum to the Camarilla for an Art Exhibit. Whispers have also begun that the Elder Nova Arpad, Ventrue Prince of Mediasch Romania will be in attendance and that she may be backing a pair of proposals that the Prince of Fall River and the Islands will be bringing to Conclave. I've also heard that Dominic of Clan Brujah, rival of the Arpad line, was spotted in Boston a month or so ago in the company of Primogen Kincaid.
Elder Kincaid really does keep the most interesting company, no?
After Court was when things began to get truly interesting though..
First.. Mister Morgenstern of Clan Tremere was removed from his position of Sheriff. Elder Sebastian, loyal childe of Elder Kincaid, was chosen to replace him. From what I heard, Dorian Twain of Clan Malkavian and Mister Morgenstern will be serving as Sheriff Sebastian's Deputies.
Second.. The Sabbat still have it out for Seneschal Grigori and Keeper Saltonstall. Apparently their Rival is an old enemy of theirs.. a spy who bested them in spy games in their past and is now the childe of Collin, the Lasombra. Gotta love when old enemies come back for more.
Third.. Rumors of an Infernal Geomantic Nexus began to circulate within the Court and a mortal cult of Moloch had been rumored to have popped up this last month.
A number of individuals decided to go tromping off to the affected cities to see if they could determine more about the infernal graffiti.. or the demonic servitors themselves. Yes, that's right.. a group of mostly neonates decided the *smart* thing to do was to go hunting Baali blindly. At least they asked the Sheriff for a ride-along and had permission of Her Majesty.
Fourth.. A few of our Court managed to find where one of the Infernalists was holed up. Apparently this Infernalist is tied to the "Frozen Heart Killer".. a serial killer that has been active in the Domain and quite elusive. The Hell Hound they fought quite literally blew up, destroying it's master and likely taking a chunk of necessary intel and information back to hell with them both. Now it has been alleged that this FHK created some sort of infernal relic that has been handed over to the power that is behind the Lasombra Collin.. which may potentially be Moloch and the Baali. Lovely.
But all of that happened late in the night.. and no one involved saw fit to tell the Queen.. until she demanded correspondence with those involved. And rather than engage in private discourse.. they decided to write public explanations.
Elder Kincaid noted "Firstly, when Her Majesty requests contact, she wishes private contact. Spewing forth your back peddling, incorrect assumptions, and substandard justifications in the more public forum is bad form and not in your best interests. You see, if she has asked, she already has answers. If she is pointing out an issue, it is because the error has reached a point that is intolerable to her that she has made commentary." He also went on to point out how vulgar he found Mister Henry Abrams words during this fiasco. Thankfully for Mister Abrams, he carried the favor of Elder Absalon Dieudonne and is not marred by Primogen Kincaid's opinion.. though he no longer carries Elder Dieudonne's favor. Such is the price for publically stumbling in the Danse.. thankfully Mister Abrams is a quick learner.
I'm not going to warn anyone about their behavior in the Moloch fiasco.. they know if they have behaved justly and rightly, and it will be up to our Prince to settle any issues she feels are remaining. I will however leave us to ponder these words..
Again, thou shalt say to the children of Israel, Whoever he be of the children of Israel or of the strangers that sojourn in Israel, that giveth any of his seed unto Molech; he shall surely be put to death: the people of the land shall stone him with stones. And I will set my face against that man, and will cut him off from among his people; because he hath given of his seed unto Molech, to defile my sanctuary, and to profane my holy name. And if the people of the land do any ways hide their eyes from the man, when he giveth his seed unto Molech, and kill him not, then I will set my face against that man, and against his family, and will cut him off, and all that go a whoring after him, to commit whoredom with Molech, from among their people.
I will also say this about our March Gathering..
Deputy Dorian Twain composed himself quite Courteously over the course of a stressful evening. I thank him for his example to his fellow neonates.
I would also like to thank Mister Morgenstern for his Loyal service to the domain. We are all safer for your continued vigilance and service to Her Majesty.
Sofie Renner and I have shared a few Courteous conversations, and I am looking forward to getting to know her better.
And let us not forget the Honorable example of Primogen Montgomery Grant of the Gangrel.. I look forward to watching him guide his clan.
