World of Darkness; Darkness Fall

Welcome to your Adventure Log!
A blog for your campaign

Every campaign gets an Adventure Log, a blog for your adventures!

While the wiki is great for organizing your campaign world, it’s not the best way to chronicle your adventures. For that purpose, you need a blog!

The Adventure Log will allow you to chronologically order the happenings of your campaign. It serves as the record of what has passed. After each gaming session, come to the Adventure Log and write up what happened. In time, it will grow into a great story!

Best of all, each Adventure Log post is also a wiki page! You can link back and forth with your wiki, characters, and so forth as you wish.

One final tip: Before you jump in and try to write up the entire history for your campaign, take a deep breath. Rather than spending days writing and getting exhausted, I would suggest writing a quick “Story So Far” with only a summary. Then, get back to gaming! Grow your Adventure Log over time, rather than all at once.

Arriving at the rendez-vous point, inside a internet cafe, O`Toole met with Mr.Anderson one on one,Monika waiting outside in the car.For O`Toole, it was just crazy talk, stranges occurences,time distortion,destiny manipulations and so on…Mr.Anderson finally got O`Toole attention and propose him to met two others individuals who experienced some weirdness in link to what happened this night.Promised by answers and some sense of this very night,O`Toole accepted to wait and see for himself.A couple of minutes after,the two others individuals arrived in a car and were welcomed by Anderson,Monika and O`Toole.

Frost and Dickinson joined the gathering and Frost realised that he met Patrick O`Toole earlier at the Historical Society.The PC introduced themselves and the “troupe” was finally created :)yeah!

Anderson was taken apart by Tyler and Frost and talked about Tyler necessity to bring back this wooden box in the hand of his employer.Anderson accepted to leave the strange object in the hand of Tyler but before he needed to verify something with O`Toole.All party agreed and they finally arrived inside a desert hangar numbered #6.Inside the hangar was junk and a old table, Anderson opened the wooden box and installed the clock device on the table asking O`Toole to concentrate himself on the object and empty his mind.After a couple of minutes of silence,O`Toole realised that he was somewhere else.A dead land with a strong wind,the feeling of emptiness and sadness.A voice behind him told him not to worry about not been able to save the hobo..he was marked anyway.After a short conversation, O`Toole was back inside the hangar.
NOTA:ALL THE OTHERS SAW o`tOOLE KIND OF STOIC AND MOVING HIS LIPS BUT WITHOUT A SOUND.
Anderson explained that Patrick was inside a “pure dimension” and told him that Patrick was able to reach powers and knowledges that are unreachable on the moment but not if he decided to join a selective society.That invitation was given to all PC and they were to decide yes or no to join tomorrow at 18h by calling Anderson to give him a answer.

It`s not far from 06:10 and the sun `s pointing at the horizon.O`Toole decided to go downtown and found some hard drugs to differienciate from what he experienced at the hangar and the drug trip to verify if all this was not an elaborate hallucination.Dickinson leaved the hangar with the wooden box and the strange clock inside it.Tyler bought an airport locker and inside leaved the clock wrapped in a rag.Inside the wooden box, he filled it with underwears and called Diego Pucci to gave him the object in question.After a small talk and agreeing on the final terms of the contract, Tyler gave Diego a false hotel adress and left the place and hided into another hotel room.He shaved his head to make sure nobody will recognize him.Concerning Frost,he presented himself at his job at the museum and ask to talk with Anna Dorovkievabout the strange rock.Frost asked for a special permission to take the rock and examine it at the museum lab.He took the rock and another piece of rock of similar size with the idea to create a replica of it.

CUT AWAY: We see a pair of shoes,shiny and black coming out of a vehicle.They stop and a briefcase is posed on the concrete floor.The man go back inside his car and start the engine, leave the place and we realise from a back point of view, we are on the docks in the morning around 10:33 am.We see the orange pants of the docks workers approaching the suitcase and see a hand grabing the suitcase in question.The hands open the suitcase and we see inside it a clock device similar to what Anderson used to “awake” O`Toole.We hear a voice yelling something about going inside the office for a couple of minutes and being back very soon.We see that this man is Mike.At large on the highway we follow a black car, we get inside from the driver point of view and see a hand composing on a cellphone fixed on the daskboard, a voice come out and tell" YES.." the driver respond " IT`S DONE "
the voice on the phone respond " GOOD WORK!" and the driver say " THANK YOU, I WILL BE CALLING YOU BACK VERY SOON MR.ANDERSON." and the conversation stop .We follow the car on the highway and distance ourself from the car going straight up… END.

SCENE:3

After a couple of minutes, the characters started to feel warmer and the lights from the candles started to filled the hangar from the characters point of view, and felt their body disapearring from the hangar and rematerialise somewhere else.

Frost reappeared not so far from the old ruined house he saw in his first experience in this dead land of gray and windy realm.He was back again ! Their was again those dark particules transported by the cold wind all around Frost and he decided to start walking toward the ruined house.Arrived to the house, he realise that it was only one facade of a house in ruins and tried to hide from the wind but no success so far.He decide to take a direction and see where that will lead.After a long walk, he arrived of what seems a crypt with a half opened door.With no effort, he opened the door and a staircase going downward was his only way in,toward darkness.With trust in himself he ventured inside and started going downward.After a dark and unsure travel he finally started to see some strange glowing mushroom lighting the way and finally a large cavern at the bottom of the stone staircase.Frost saw at far a stone ceremonial table and something shiny on the table.As he approached, he realise that the shiny thing was a coin with skull engraved on it.As he touch it to take it,Frost realise that he was surronded by a warm light and started to feel again his body and as the light started to fade away,the environment was quite different.He was now inside a shed,placed at the corner of a similar triangle but this one drawed on a wooden floor, and a man in a wheelchair arboring a welcoming smile.

O`Toole realise after what seems seconds,that he was in a foetal position inside a room too small for him with a small door just big enough to escape the stony and cold room.When finally be out of the room,he realise that the outside wasn`t so welcoming with that strong wind and some particules being blown and going everywhere without any destinations.O`Toole decided to choose a direction and started to walk that way.After what seems hours, he started to heard the ringing of a bell mixed with the noise of the cold wind.As he approach the bell ringing,O`Toole saw at far a metal pole,inclined at 45 degrees,planted in the soil with a leather pouch attach to it and a bell made of iron.Arrived more closely at the metal rod,O`Toole hesitated before touching the pouch or the bell and decided to try to contact the voice he heard before in his first experience of reality switching,but no success.After a while, he decided to detach the leather pouch and opened it.He found a couples of coins inside and when he arrived to take them, he felt his body desintegrated particules by particules to finally reappear inside a warm light and a place that seems to be the inside of a shack.Realising that he was elsewhere and taking a quick look around, O`Toole saw Frost not so far from him and a man in a wheelchair in front of a laptop.

Dickinson was surrounded by the warm light from the candles when suddenly, everything went dark and silent.After a couple of seconds he realise that he was in complete darkness,eyes opened and the fall of a drop of water was the only noise echoing in this dark and humid place.Dickinson started to venture blindly into the darkness and come to realise that the floor was rocky and not leveled at all.He came to touch what seems a stalagmyte and concluded that he was somewhere underground.Suddenly, a mixed voice of a man, a woman and a child asked Tyler why is he here.Dickinson told that he was following the way and asked where he needed to go to continue his course.The voice told Tyler to go straight up and there he will find the way.Following the advice of the mixed voice, he walked straight up inside the pitchblack cavern.He arrived at a rocky slope and found at touch a wooden club.With a strange feeling,Tyler knew somehow that he posseded the faculty to light the club only with his will.Obliging his will,he light up the club and came to have a look at where he was.A cavern like he never saw and a kind of stone staircase climbing to a upper level at far.Reaching the kind of staircase,Tyler climbed it and came to a stone wall.That part of the wall was clearly man made and in the middle of it was that carved insigna…a gauntlet of some kink.When Dickinson touched the curved insigna, he felt that some kind of force and/or presence smashed with a evil will his body to the point of voluntarily inflict pain and frustation.When finally taking back conscience,Tyler was again inside that warm light and realise too that he was inside a shack with Frost and O`Toole not so far from him and that strange man in a wheel chair.

All too weirded by what happened, the man in the wheelchair told to relax and go have a seat at the couch in the corner of the room, answers are coming but for now they need to wait a little bit for Mr.Anderson and Monika.The PC`s followed the whellchair man instructions and seated themselves and started to asked themselves what happened from the hangar to this place.O`Toole was the only one who kept shut.After a while, Anderson and Monika appeared inside the room and the lights from the candles started to fade to a more normal light radiation radius.Anderson asked the PC`s if everything was alright and told them to wait a couples of minutes here inside and that he will be back to answer all the questions the characters will have.Anderson,Monika and the man in wheelchair went outside a couple of minutes and during that time,Dickinson examined the laptop on the table,the candles on the floor and the symbols around it and realise that no wires were connected at all leaving him very perplex.Frost and O`Toole were in the dark and were wondering where they were.

After a while, Anderson came back alone and answered the characters questions.What they gathered in informations was that the way they used to appeared “here” is a portal in the timespace continum.That they were to be introduced to a hermetic and secret society.That the characters now needed to have a shadow name that they will use now on.They learned that their identity is to be changed.Anderson asked the characters to follow him and be ready to be welcomed by a group called the HERMETIC ORDER OF THE DAWN.Been outside after that conversation,they embarck inside a econoline van,one adapted for the man in the wheelchair,with Monika at the wheel.During the way out of the woods,they hit the road and realise that they were following a coastal route at night.During the trip, Tyler asked the man in the wheelchair his name and Firewall introduce himself.Tyler asked him about the cavern and where he was exactly.Firewall smiled and told Tyler that he was somewhere called PANDEMONIUM, one of the pure dimension in a sort.
