Session 7 Log

Mykal:

Mykal continues the investigations of his fatherís demise. He begins by paying visits to the socialites of the time to dig up whatever gossip may be found. He learns details about the struggle and rivalry between Lord Kira and Lord Asano. He begins to suspect that the situation was arranged by an outside party.

Jade:

Jade continues her visit with her father. She decides to test the security of the Ways by trying to penetrate the protected areas. He gets quite far before she is trapped by a living section of hallway. When her father shows up, she fast talks her way out and is escorted out for a walk.. Her father asks her to invite him to Amber to poke around a bit. Jade declines, saying it has to be her mother who invites him. Shortly thereafter, an attack is launched on the Way by a rival house. A number of Fire Angels are used in the assault and seem to be having little difficulty with the defenses.

Andre:

Andre goes out acting as bait. He takes his bodyguards on a cruise to Begma to recruit more men. On the journey, the glamour using chaosian makes another appearance trying to spy on Andre. Andre pulls Gerard through a trump and they try to kill the intruder. Gerard thinks he wounded him, but the spy gets away. Upon reaching Begma, Vindalf disappears in the city. He never returns, presumably killed by the spy for information.

Mykal:

Mykalís investigation leads him to stir the memories and spy on the emperorís thoughts via trump. He learns that a number of important persons were vying for the attention of a particular courtesan and that she was the driving force that led to his fatherís situation. He finds a painting of the courtesan and study leads Flora to tell him it was Dierdre who was responsible. Mykal then is ordered to report to Benedict for duty. When he shows up, Benedict assigns him as liason with a representative from chaos who has been distracting Benedict. Margolis and Mykal spend time sizing each other up and Mykal witnesses one of the duels that have been sucking up Benedictís time.

Jade:

Jade gets to show off fighting the fire angels. She survives and one of the chaosians trumping them in is killed. Jade learns that Dara has married her fatherís cousin and that it is not a marriage of love. Jade then returns to 1925ís era Earth to take dancing lessons and generally goof around. She has a long trump conversation with her mother about bringing her father to Amber and Rebma.

Andre:

Andre confers with the King about his role and it is decided that he will undergo training to become a member of the Secret Service since his debut as bait was less than successful. Andre spends the next few days in the company of the royal agents learning basic tradecraft.

Mykal/Jade/Andre:

Benedict is set up in a duel with his own descendant Dara. When Dara dies, she curses Benedict to never heal. Immediately the chaosians attack to take advantage of the blood curse. Benedict is wounded and evacuated. It is apparent he will not long survive, so a number of options are discussed. A threat is made to the King of Chaos to provide a shapeshifting healer or face a bloodcurse of his own. He refuses, so Jadeís father is brought in on the sly to try. He fails as well. As a last resort, Benedict tries to attune to the Jewel of Judgement. He perishes in the attempt, but magnifies his death curse with it, uttering the word ďJusticeĒ
