  • I turn around with a smile, lower my shades to peer over them at her, "they couldn't afford me," I joke. And I make my living... well... not like that. I let the boom-boom of the music pulse through me and I start to subtly move with the beat. Get …
  • Luu Cat is one of those all-positive club kids. Little bit snarky and casual on the outside, but she's hiding something dark by using and fronting. You don't get into this kind of life without some kind of hangup. Whenever she speaks to me it feels …
  • Sharing is weird. I've spent plenty of nights at someone or other's place... seldom at mine. And he's not here cause I'm into him either, which is just weirder. He sees me tuned down... not completely, but I'm not all glam for the clubs, or even fl…
  • I look at him dryly, hint of a smile, "I probably shouldn't go home either," I head out the door with him onto the street. Take in the disappointing sight of the humid, mostly gray street. I glance at him, without the augmentation of the veil he's…
  • This is a mind trip, watching Glitch sort of fade from the Veil. He's there... just as much as always, but the metadata, visual enhancements, physical tracking... it's all gone. Reminds me of Rostum, really, but this is deliberate, not just incident…
  • The construct is gone and I'm back with Glitch in the little lounge. I approach him, close, and whisper, "we're in luck..." I let a moment of anticipation build, "Someone will help." I take his hand, subtly, between us and open it. The digital choc…
  • "Understood," I answer. I'm pretty good at making my feeling... they are my trade... but as much as I'm nervous about this whole thing. Getting so close to a would be assassin of a direct relative of the Daimyo, I'm relieved to have shared the burde…
  • I pause again. Nobody likely notices, although Mnemosyne is quite perceptive. But not long. I made my choice when I helped this guy from danger rather than bring security down on him. He would be dead right now if I'd chosen the easy way. "I am," …
  • I pause. Because I have no idea... wait. I do have some idea. "The situation is serious," I explain without too much detail, "someone may be tracing us... and it feels bigger than I know. He needs to disappear until things settle... I'm sorry I do…
  • I settle comfortable into the construct. The veil feels not quite as home as not, but I can operate in either place. Mnemosyne is beautiful and confident here, and through her concentration I feel trust and strength. Like I'm welcomed into her rea…
  • My identity is fluid, Mnemosyne herself helped me set it up. It's difficult to disappear from the Veil, but everyone who scans me sees something a little different. It's not subterfuge, but anonymity that I'm looking for. And that makes using even t…
  • I know it... but with Giri comes attachment. And like it or not I'm connected to this guy. For now. I should ditch him and report, probably. Report that I neutralized a threat and hope for some kind of bonus pay for the gig.... but I ain't like that…
  • As we walk I send a message to Salomé, "keeping this guy out of your signal range, expect no trouble from this guy tonight. Hope we didn't stir up too much on our way out." I lead Glitch off the mains, take to the narrow, damp little alleys betwee…
  • I don't stop walking with purpose, but unsure where to go... "I haven't quite noodled that out yet," I answer truthfully, "did you notice someone was tailing us? You, I think. You've been tagged as a threat.... by someone. You're not safe Glitch." …
  • [HAVANA] 10+ Choosing 3: * Your actions create an opportunity for you or someone else. (For Rostam, or for Glitch to also escape if need be) * You’re able to slip away. (Will take this or the previous twice if need be)
  • [HAVANA] Rolling to Divert the guard's attention from myself and Glitch. +0Scared +1Analyze (Rolled: 2d6+1. Rolls: 6, 4. Total: 11)
  • Someone stalking Glitch? Because he's after the Daimyo's son? Because he failed? The possibilities flood through my head, but Rostam is here... and he's on the trail of this threat... on the best of days I'm not a fighter. And I'm not even armed be…
  • Analyze questions: What is my best way out? Just play it cool and walk past? Or do we need to find a secret path. What if anything appears out of place? Of course, my sense of the flow might be a factor here. What do I feel.
  • [HAVANA] Analyze the situation: Scared+0 (Rolled: 2d6. Rolls: 2, 6. Total: 8)
  • Pretty sure being armed with a deadly weapons is discouraged in a high class place like that. So magnum's at home. Unless I'm totally wrong. But I'm alert and wary for danger, so let's go with the analysis roll, it can help us get to safety, or ale…
  • Guessing I'm unaware of all that huh? Got my own stuff on my mind... but was Rostam bailing on the party, too? Is he on to us? He wouldn't be working with the Guard... I know that much. Once we're outside the bar it's a matter of keeping low and g…
  • Trevis, that sounds great. Will edit that in above and on my charsheet.
  • [HAVANA] Rolling Risk : Scared+0 (Rolled: 2d6. Rolls: 3, 6. Total: 9)
  • Want to look like we're going to the washrooms, but then break for the exit once we're out of sight.
  • Even a few moments without an answer gets me looking for her, and as I find Salomé chatting with Rostam... that's a surprise in itself to see him here... but I curse under my breath and I know I have to do something on my own. Probably in the middl…
  • Havana's Giri questions (empath) If someone caught you manipulating someone else’s emotions unbeknownst to them and didn’t tell anyone else, they have 1 Giri on you. [Mnemosyne] I you used the Flow to comfort someone when they needed it the most, …
  • "My name is Havana," I offer, as I slip my hand gently across his ear and to touch the back of his neck. I'm being gently, but firm, not letting go. That's not going to happen, Glitch. I'm here to keep things smooth, make this thing happen nice and…
  • I calm a little. he's opening up, letting it out. He wants to be convinced... he wouldn't speak of it otherwise. Not knowing all the details I'm pretty sure I don't need to right now. I just need to control the flow and change this moment. I touch…
  • I can feel my pulse quickening. To be truthful, this is beyond my normal routine. I glance towards the Daimyo's son and his honor guard... they could waste this whole place in moments, couldn't they? And here I am... a low-life metro... an elegant …
  • Spending hold: How can I get you to leave the venue with me?
