Tour Through Time

Rest on the Seine - 42BC

The party began the session with a trip to the Necropolis to formally present themselves to Lord Invictus Rexus III and to adhere to the policies of the “True Camarilla”. It was not lost on our kindred that this was the 3rd time they have met the True Ruler of the True Camarilla. After such time, they were asked to expose Argentum for his treachery against his brother, with the help of Luna and the Larude spirits they did just that. Argentum was exiled. Invictus asked the party if they would be the honor guard of Zertax as he travelled to North Gaul to Lutetia. After a trip to the Forum, Anumani managed to smack down both Octavius and Antony. The party headed out and overcame many dangerous situations on the road to Lutetia. This included treachery by Zertax, an unwanted trip to Arcadia, rumors of Evil maneating Uratha, and the muck and mire of the road. Finally arriving in Lutetia, Akkadius discovers that his forerunners were thwarted and went North to Melun. The city of Lutetia is surrounded by an army of Usurpers headed by Vercingetorix who was supposedly dead. After sneaking into the city, it is discovered the entire city is held hostage, and the young kindred within are powerless to stop it. In a brutal underground assault, Vercingetorix is discovered to be a Geist of moderate power. FInally the party prevails, and Lutetia is saved. They are granted use of Clodius’ palace, and Anumani joins the Council of the Pagi Maximi. All seems to be at peace, but darkness is awlays at bay…

The adventures began in Egypt as our brood slumbered in the Sarapeum outside of Alexandria only to discover that 4 khaibit assassins of Sutekh were waiting to steal the masks from out heroes and take their places as Gods. Their plans were foiled by some nifty obfuscate and auspex trips.

Next the onslaught of Ana-Khem. Arriving at Ptolemy’s Palace as Sobekh, Bastet, and the mysterious elephant God, the party convinces Ptolemy into revolution against traitors mainly at the Temple of Khem. After sneaking in uninvited as a member of the Azia guard of Na-Ramanase the Persian Ventrue Lord with the help of Lord Alrik, the party is discovered by Lucia. Outside the Temple, they make an alliance with Na-Ramanase and have safe travel to Persia. The next day the army of Ptolemy ransacks the Temple and burns it with wood and hot oils. Ana-Khem is trapped within, and in frenzy kills Lucia before roasting into oblivion.

After returning to Rome, the party discovers high political tension amongst the mortal world. They hear rumors that the child of the Camarilla’s founder, has returned to claim Rome for himself. The party meets Lord Invictus and his many powerful allies, and sees that he is a very noble kindred, although they suspect his brother is not, the deceptive argentum. they make an agreement, and in 44BC when Brutus strikes Caesar, Invictus’ forces flood Rome. The party runs to the Sanctum Camarilla to find Fabius, but in a sad turn of events, Fabius’ trust in his ancient allies is misplaced as they rapidly kill and then eat him.

Now Invictus takes over, but the party fears what will happen with Argentum in his ear, and their mistrust of Luna and her intentions. Invictus holds the first Camarilla Senex in almost 200 years and the brood has pledged to call out Argentum. What will happen in our next installment?

Egypt 48BC

The story began with Julius Caesar encamped with the Legionnaires outside of Rome. Fabius called together the council of the Camarilla and needed to have more info on the kindred controlling Pompey. The party went to scout, Timjuradi questioning the Praefectus, Anumani and Tyr meeting with Pompey, and Rhiatt scouting from Obfuscation. It was determined that several kindred were here, led by a powerful female Consulltia named Lucia, and her childer protecting her. After a Majesty showdown, the stalemate ended with everyone going home. Civil war hit the streets of Rome, but thanks to some advanced intel delivered to Antony from Timjuradi, the forces of Pompey were at a disadvantage. In order to curry favor, the party was asked to Compel the God of War Mars for assistance. Mars would only grant his favor if the party fought his Champion, Orbituis, and his pack of War Wolves. The party agreed and after some devestating blows, they finally prevailed. After some snooping Timjuradi discovered that Kratos was held here, apparently for the murder of the Greek War God Ares. They curried favor with Mars, and in exchange for the mighty gladiator Marcellius, he freed Kratos. The party waited out the time of war, and when the end game was near, it was discovered Pompey and his sons had fled. The children of Lucia were spotted at the harbor, and the party unwisely stowed upon the barges. Nearing Sicily it was determined that it would be good to take out the False Akkadian, a rather easy battle. Upon arrival in Alexandria, the party moved the sacred texts from the Library and burned it down, they then intervened in Caesar’s negotiations with Ptolemy. The 3 Queens of Egypt were removed to Rome along with Antony, and Caesar went south to Memphis to hunt for Pompey. The party, unsatisfied with the loss of Lucia, hunted her down. It was here they discovered the abandoned underground Temple of Khem, and the true ruler of the Kindred world, Ana-Khem.

Rome, beginning of the Empire, 63BC to 60BC

The brood awakens in the bowels of a museum of history in 63BCE. The priests of the mighty God of Trickery Mercury maneuver the party to a bastion painted an ominous black. The God Mercury arrives and reveals himself to be the ancient and wise Marduk. The party has learned a thing or two now and immediately insinuates itself onto the scene. The old denizen of the bastion is booted and after a skirmish for the North Tower, the party fits in. The kindred no longer rule as Gods, but live in the shadows under a construct called the Camarilla. The ruler, the Pater Sanguiness discounts the age and wisdom of this party, and it costs his life as they grant support to the usurper Fabius and Scipio. The pater is killed, his mortal rulers the Consults are decapitated, and the Triumvirate headed by Julius Caesar is placed into power. In exchange for the support, Fabius grants the party positions of authority in the Camarilla, a decision that in time he is sure to regret…
