: Moderate Physical: REMOVED
: Minor Mental: WORRY FOR MICHAEL
- Sustained as a result of her thaumaturgical tracking spell to locate the missing Michael, the consequence taken in lieu of stress. She recovered fully once Michael was rescued and in the hospital being treated for his concussion and other wounds.
: Severe Physical: SHATTERED ARM
- Turk Murder was especially offended when Alex pushed over his drum kit in order to get to Michael, in that crowded mini-storage unit. He was aiming at her head, but she managed to get her arms up just in time. The resulting blow shattered both bones in her forearm, and badly bruised her other arm as well. Once she had been seen at UC Davis Medical Center, her consequence was renamed STUCK IN THIS CAST, and will last until the story arc is completed.

The minor milestone is earned for beginning the research below, as well as formulating plans for how to go about accomplishing the objectives of satisfying their clients. Additionally, they were able to rescue Michael and see the three members of Outta the Black who had kidnapped him apprehended and put in jail.
Fee (like Izzy) was feeling unwell, and did not feel up to showing up for the meeting at Dune Investigations.
Ed was ill as well, but it was an easy story add to let Michael become the victim of kidnapping, as Outta the Black was tipped off that the guitar was not destroyed in the fire, but stolen by Michael and his accomplices.
The party had a very nice brainstorming session to start, and worked out some plans as to best accomplish their job, working for The Count of Count’s Vamp’s. Their goals are:
- Discover who is truly behind the mayhem that took place at Count’s Vamp’d including how high up the plot goes (Betty Jean, her purchase, Spike’s involvement and if he is just being used as a pawn of Neahr and the Red Court).
- Do an investigation on Count’s Vamp’d itself.
- Question/infiltrate Spike’s inner circle (Dylan will do this, as Spike does not yet know him).
- Question the band Outta the Black, to discover how complicitous they were regarding Betty Jean.
- Alex to speak to Raven once more, to see if she might shed any further insight.
- Investigate the overdose death of John Bauss, whose body was discovered in the parking lot of C’s V’d the night of the riotous frenzy at the club.
- Dig up more dirt on Gaston Neahr, in order to eliminate him (possibly through deportation)
- Get evidence regarding his drug business
- Find out more about his employees, specifically Charley and the Geun Brothers.
- Alex began research on how best to set up some wards on the office (without killing all the electronics in the building).
- Dylan went to Sac State and got the brush off by Spike, but later made some headway, meeting one of Spike’s apparent groupies, an arrogant loner and geek, Stan (“Stan the MAN!”).
*Eva made little progress investigating the drug scene (other than to reaffirm that with the events of “Smoker, I Didn’t Even Know Her” impacted business for the worse).
All the investigations were suddenly put on hold when Alex finally turned on her phone and discovered a message from Michael, from earlier that morning. It was clear, from the recording, that Michael had been assaulted, and he’d said he just picked up some bagels from the shop around the corner. So they dropped everything and convened on La Bou (the bakery), where they found the scene of the kidnapping, including Michael’s blood-spattered phone.
