"What is this, a scene from a movie?"

Two small time crooks are also enjoying a meal, and in a sudden moment of inspiration decide to rob the diner. Confronting Phillip, they demand his wallet and that he attempt to open a briefcase belonging to a gentleman who looks similar to Jules from the movie Pulp Fiction. “Jules” decides that he will have none of that and opens fire on the two hooligans. Phillip dives away from the gunfight, swiping the briefcase, taking a few shots which seem to have absolutely no effect on him, and runs through the kitchen with “Jules” in pursuit. Attempting to make his escape, he nearly bumps back into “Jules” in the lobby before running out a fire escape and making his way from the scene. He returns to Eva’s apartment and carefully opens the case, finding some money, car keys, a pillow and blanket, and something that growls. Ivy, Phillip’s geist advises him to close the briefcase, which Phillip does and prepares to retire for the night.
  • Jonathan, Tommy, and Connar attempt to capture Luke by staking out the apartment he is visiting, where Luke has requested the fairies build him some sort of “supernatural nuclear weapon.” After a series of quests involving the bargaining with the fae, Luke, using craigslist, gets a ghoul in the form of a 17 year old girl. An argument breaks out between Connar and Luke over the ghoul, both of which makes the ghoul upset. Tommy comforts the ghoul. They stop at a dinner with werewolves. The werewolves tell Connar that Jonathon is possessed by a demon. The werewolves attack. Connar andLuke attack each other. Jonathon starts burning werewolves. Tommy jumps into the car and drives off, leaving his psychotic friends behind and taking the ghoul to a safer place. Jonathon turns into a greater demon and the rest of the wolves are killed. Even though he has little trust in his “friends”, Tommy comes back. More arguments with the group leave Luke and Jonathon behind to fend for themselves as Connar and Tommy take the ghoul with them. Luke creates 2 more ghouls. Jonathon and Luke make up and Luke bargain with the fae and appear in front of the car. Luke gets hit by the car. They talk it out and start to work together. Luke bargains to to have a quick passage to New York city and for his first ghoul too be safely returned to her parents. Tommy refuses to take the quick passage, his main concern is the safety of the young ghoul and takes the car to New York city. The rest of the group are transported into the hedge where they’re attacked by brairwolves. The group loses the other two ghouls and escape it into the hotel where they meet Tommy in a bathrobe and eating crab cakes. The hotel was also a part of the bargain with the fae.

After series of events where Luke leaves early in West Virginia and there’s an altercation in a diner that leaves the bus empty and the diner destroyed, they drive back through West Virginia to find Luke. Tommy feels less certain of his co-adventurers motivations.
  • Jonathan, after getting into an argument with his geist, was a mortal for a day before Connar accidentally cut himself on a silver straight razor, releasing the bound demon within “Karen”, an ancient demon of wrath, pride and envy who spent the bus ride goading Jonathan into acts of destruction through fire. Eventually, during a confrontation with three vampires at a diner, Jonathan allowed “Karen” into his body to turn one of the vampires into ash – while simultaneously killing their prey, a mother. After this Jonathan, Tommy, and Connar steal the dead woman’s Tahoe and retrace their steps to track down Luke, who has committed a series of extreme crimes in the absence of the three.
  • Eva Gardner, Jezebel “J.J” Jones, and Abigail “Abby” Roth arrive in Cairo, Egypt and head to see Eva’s father. Upon arriving at the hospital, Eva attempts to administer to her father before a group of military men arrive and announce that Eva and her group must evacuate. While reluctant, the three women leave and are promptly captured. While Eva fights her captors when they enter to retrieve her companions, killing one, she is ultimately stuck in a small hotel-like room.
  • Abby is interrogated by Agent Ethan Stone, and Agent Alice Nelson, while their first exchanges are relatively neutral, as the hour passes Abby’s will is broken down and she eventually spills a lot of information regarding the group, before being pulled away by a flash of light. The agents are left to determine how they are going to file a report on this.
  • Abby arrives in her grandfather’s house, Edward Roth having teleported her out of harm’s way, and reminds her of the mission. Abby describes the situation to him, and Edward gives her a piece of information to help her before allowing her to rest up and heading back to Egypt.

A noise eminates from the bathroom and Victor opens the door. They both decide to head to a restaurant.
  • Tariq Hiraga revives as a vampire and is awed by his powers for a length of time before drinking from the fratboy blood slaves and then heading into town to confront Phillip. Calling Phillip, he launches into an angry tirade before Officer Binky notices him and tells him to simmer down, you’re disturbing the peace. Tariq stalks off, finally meeting Phillip and Victor at the restaurant, holding all of a five minute discussion before Victor excuses himself to use the restroom and promptly disappears again, leaving Phillip to pay the bill.
Bathrooms, rats and nudity
  • Eva Gardner, Abigail “Abby” Roth, and Jezebel “J.J” Jones travel to Orlando to board a private jet for Cairo. Eva decides to feed and targets a group of cheerleaders, successfully dominating one of them and drinking their blood while the other two are involved in a cat fight in the bathroom. The girls then board the plane without further incident.
  • Meanwhile, Phillip in Gainesville contacts his drinking buddy Tariq Hiraga in order to explore some of the surrounding areas where there could be information on the supernatural phenomena plaguing the city. After receiving some information about the surrounding natural sinkholes which could be acting as a conduit of transportation and of supernaturals, Phillip and Tariq travel to Devil’s Millhopper just outside of town. On their arrival that evening, they proceed to investigate an unusual entrance which leads them into a cave system where a small group of strange, half man, half goat people are currently attempting to sacrifice, oh, wait, suddenly rats attacking Tariq. While the goat men run for their lives, Phillip attempts to free Tariq from the rats by beating them off with a wall hanging, unfortunately igniting the entire room in flame. Phillip’s geist Ivy notifies him of the vampiric energy, and while Phillip does make a rescue attempt, he is ultimately driven back by the flame and the vampire energy. Tariq is left behind.
  • Connar Larsson and Jonathan Masters pick up Thomas Highchild from the hospital and find a motel. They agree on taking a bus to Nashville in the morning and try to get some sleep.

Tommy hears this and tries to finish. A redneck kicks the door. Tommy stands up and pulls his pants up. The door is kicked in and Tommy grabs the toilet brush, dunks it into the toilet and thrusts it at the intruder. Tommy misses and is stabbed by the intruder with a syringe. The syringe didn’t take effect and the redneck behind the intruder hands the intruder another syringe. Tommy uses the toilet brush, disarms the intruder and the syringe almost hits the redneck to the rear. The intruder tries to tackle Tommy and misses. The redneck grabs the syringe. Tommy leaps over the intruder and past the redneck. The intruder grabs Tommy by the ankle and the redneck stabs Tommy with the syringe. Tommy blacks out.

Tommy comes up with a plan, Jon and Tommy squat down and search for a stick or something to lock pick the manacle. They find a hard stick but Tommy can’t pick the lock with it. Frustrated, Tommy bangs his hands against the tree and one of the manacles comes off. They’re free. Tommy and Jonathan begin trying to follow the foot prints back to civilization. Tommy believes Jonathan is losing his mind as he begins talking to ghosts of civil war soldiers. A howl breaks the quiet of the night as Tommy freaks out and tries to run away. A second howl is heard and Tommy recovers his composure, only to be dragged away by a now frightened Jonathan. They continue this for a while, getting frightened and getting lost. Jonathan freaks out and pushes Tommy to the ground but then Jonathan loses balance and lands on top of Tommy. Tommy threatens “shitting on it” if Jonathan ever thinks about raping him. Even though it was strange circumstances, they are now uncomfortably warm. They stand back up and resume getting lost. Connar is seen flying over Tommy and Jonathan‘s head into a tree. 3 wolves charge towards where Connar landed. Jonathan and Tommy used the chain between them to trip over one of the wolves. The other wolf starts laughing like a hyena. This causes the tripped wolf to sulk off. Tommy and Jonathan try to nonchalantly make their way towards Connar and the hyena-wolf jumps in front of them. They prepare for battle when the wolves leave. They find Connar and travel back to Dalton city. Tommy finds some clothes hanging to dry. Tommy found a nice suit that fits him perfectly in colors that matches his eyes, Jonathan got a floral dress for a larger lady andConnar decided to just turn into a wolf instead of wearing a child’s lederhosen.

They leave Gainesville in the Orange mocha frappacino express.
  • Phillip remains behind to investigate the supernatural forces of Gainesville, and to get a good night’s rest. Having told Eva of the time it would take to make repairs to his van, she calls Bill the mechanic and “requests” that he move up the repairs, instead of 5-6 weeks, it will take only two.

Tommy smacks his head onto the dashboard in the accident. They manage to crawl out of the vehicle to see their wrecked Jeep. Tommy begins trying to pull out his suitcase while a female trucker comes out of her truck with a shotgun. Tommy and Jonathan continue to try and take out their luggage while Connar begins to talk to the trucker. An argument heats up between Connar and the trucker then Tommy interjects and calms the situation down. Sheriff Buford and his deputy show up at the crash site and pull Connar aside. Tommy redirects the trucker’s anger and dismay towards what caused the sudden stop in the middle of I-75 and then returns to pulling out his suitcase in which he finally succeeds. An ambulance shows to to tend to the wounded. Tommy notices his phone is destroyed. Tommy seeing how wrecked the Jeep is thinks of another way to continue the journey. Tommy goes up to the ambulance and begins flirting with the female paramedic. With Tommy’s success, he manages to get a ride to the hospital but not without his friends. Tommy declines, opting to stay with his friends since he doesn’t have a phone anymore. Just as he’s getting the blonde paramedic’s number, the deputy comes over and interrupts. The deputy is the paramedic’s cousin. The deputy begins questioning Tommy and Jonathan. Someone starts talking about werewolves and Tommy instinctively uses his mage spidey sense.

Sheriff Buford threaten Connar and Tommy to leave before noon. A frantic series of calls from Connar Larsson to Phillip doesn’t net the group any sort of transportation, potentially dooming them to be stuck in Dalton, Georgia.

Phillip immediately takes off in the opposite direction terrified by the sights and sounds of Connar’stransformation. For Connar the situation is much more straightforward…first he’s in pain…the force of his transformation is agonizing and leaves him as little more than a beast, intent only on sating his blood lust and hunger…fortunately prey is easy to find…its the thing running away…so as he recovers from his wounds he gives prusuit following Phillip in his mad dash across town towards Lake Alice.
