Bright Lights, Weird City

First Session

[OOC: I’d like to try using the Adventure Log to help us remember what happens between games. I’m going to put down some bullet points about what I remember from the session in a kind of third-person narrative format, and others can feel free to add on what they remember as well. Don’t reveal any character secrets, obviously, but if something happened out loud during the session, make a note of it here, even if your character wouldn’t know it.]

Last Streaks of Daylight

  • Alexis meets a mysterious sculptor while working late at the studio. While contemplating her future, she experiences a blackout and awakes to find that she has sculpted a flesh and blood looking yin-yang sigil without any memory of doing so. At home, she finds a note from the stranger inviting her to come find him at the Canopy Club.
  • JT has his first experience with a new enhancement drug that promises to improve his recovery time on the field. It doesn’t agree with him, but he’s willing keep trying as long as he can get it from Laila at Nargile.
  • Tre G is given party favor duty for the Pike’s first blowout of the semester, and the eccentric chess-playing Claudia becomes his new supplier after he defeats her at the game of kings.
  • Claudia frets about her friend Lauren, who seems to have gotten herself involved with some shady characters, and the state of the city after reading about recent night-time violence on the UIUC subreddit.
  • Be, still shaken from night terrors, is cajoled into attending a party at the Canopy Club, but not before threatening an obnoxious Pike with a broken bottle.
  • All is not sunny for Rob, who has to deal with his friend’s gambling debts and a father who is close to death. Sometimes one problem can solve the other, and Rob uses his father’s money to pay off Campustown kingpin Darius Masters.

The entire party arrives at the Canopy Club for the Dubstep Masquerade…

  • Rob meets Darius Masters again and convinces him that he can fund some new illicit enterprises with daddy’s money.
  • Claudia meets Lauren, and now she’s SURE that she’s gotten herself involved with some shady characters.
  • JT and Tre G hook up with Lola and Laila, but JT leaves early after Be decides that the party is too intense for someone in her condition. While outside, JT and Be meet Toby, a slightly skittish skater who knows a little too much about Be.
  • Alexis meets the mysterious sculptor and finds out that he’s being funded by a mysterious woman of exquisite taste and superfluous wealth who finds her very fascinating, indeed. She also has attracted the attention of another strange man who was definitely interested in her (for what reasons though, we do not know).
  • The Dubstep Masquerade is broken up by Gamma Omicron Pi, which might be the only frat on campus with body armor and combat rifles. The party flees the scene post-haste, but not before Alexis sees her potential meal ticket dissolve into ashes right before her eyes.
