A Taghairm Is Called
Posted by Galileos Lens on Sunday 13 August 2017 - 23:36:07
al'Masri's Cafe is politely spreading the word that a Taghairm has been called and will be held within the week. The cafe will be closed to outsiders for the night for an 'event', a wedding. There will be an actual kinfolk wedding taking place downstairs while the Taghairm occurs upstairs.

All invited. Neutrality is guaranteed.

The Taghairm is to fall on the evening of the 26th.

(( For those new to it, a Taghairm is a little like a Bastet moot. It is a neutral meeting ground sanctified by rituals and protected by the spirits. A Taghairm is a way to settle disputes, share information, and brag. They're much less formal than a Garou moot, and aren't called as frequently. ))

Huntington Library and Secrecy
Posted by Galileos Lens on Sunday 13 August 2017 - 23:33:01
People seem to have forgotten that the main method most supernaturals use to hide is secrecy. The mage chantries of the city in particular make use of this method. I recently had to retcon and disavow several scenes because somebody forgot this. The following post goes into detail:

Is the LA Ripper back?
Posted by CalliLurk on Monday 31 July 2017 - 10:53:27
Some may remember a few years ago the LA Ripper case. Multiple prostitutes of Asian ethnicity were found dead with organs removed and a loss of blood which was assumed from wounds before being dumped or displayed in various areas of Los Angeles. We recently have come to the conclusion that the person or people responsible had gone underground for many years the deaths quit. Now there seems to have been another one. Reports from the LAPD state that a Chinese girl of 16 was found in the area of Malibu Hindi Temple, strung up almost like she was Crucified with her heart missing. The girl also suffered multiple lacerations over her body and excessive contusions and bruising that may be associated with being beat. There was also signs of sexual trauma. We wish to let the city know that our Finest are hard at work trying to find the culprit of these heinous atrocities.


Shootout in Little Tokyo!
Posted by CalliLurk on Wednesday 26 July 2017 - 08:29:15
Down in Little Tokyo a man has been shot dead after a drug fueled shootout involving an unknown person of oriental descent inside the 323 Apartment block.

The man now identified as Tabata Takamori an independent software engineer; was found to have high concentrations of a new designer drug known as Nephilim in his system. Nephilim is a sensory enhancement compound that has started surfacing across the nightclub scenes throughout LA and it is believed to have caused the man to have severe hallucinations which resulted in him shooting and later, killing his wife of three years Tabata Yukio, leaving their daughter Tabata Fuji in the care of extended family.

Witnesses report three individuals heading into the building just after the first shots were fired, followed by several more which resulted in the gunmans death. One of the witnesses involved in the shooting was hospitalised and is said to make a good recovery.

So, not sure what the heck happened to all of the site's avatars, but if you want to link a new one, make sure it's http, NOT https, and just not too long. This was fine: http://farm5.staticflickr.com/4242/34996742983_9f1a3b31fa_m.jpg

I used imgur personally, and this worked fine for me: http://i.imgur.com/NYZODXk.gif

Also, the site can get testy, if at first it doesn't like the link, try again. You won't see it in your settings, to test, check the forums for one of your posts.

PS: Don't use Photobucket. They're systematically blocking off ALL third party links unless you're paying for an account. They seem to go by pages and graphics that are getting higher traffic, but ultimately ALL of their stuff will be blocked. If you are using them for anything, transfer to a different provider. This isn't the old days where they were the only game in town, as they're going to discover quite swiftly.


Double Homicide at Euro Arms Inc. Gunshop
Posted by Hermione on Saturday 08 July 2017 - 13:23:59
The local news stations and radio stations carry this as one of their breaking news stories for the next couple of days:

Police responded to reports of an active shooter situation taking place yesterday afternoon at gun shop Euro Arms Inc in Pasadena. Two people are reported dead, not including the gunmen who is said to be critical condition after an apparent self inflicted gunshot wound to the head. A third man said to be the owner of the shop is said to be in serious but stable condition as he under goes treatment at a local hospital.

The cause of the shooting is still under investigation but it appears that the gunman was not working alone. Video from the shop shows him depositing an undisclosed number of arms and ammunition into a waiting van which speeds off moments before the gunman tried to take his own life. Officials aren't saying much, other then they believe it may be gang related. They have released a blurry image of what appears to show a black van with tinted windows fleeing the scene of the crime. Anyone with information regarding this situation is urged to contact the Pasadena Police Department immediately.

This is the second crime in a two weeks where the gunman has or tried to take his own life after an otherwise successful robbery. While police insist the two matters are not related, city leaders are pressing for answers. As concerns of possible renewed gang violence or a spike in violent crimes like that which was seen in the early to mid 90's might once again be returning to Los Angeles.


Jewelry Exchange Robbed
Posted by Galileos Lens on Saturday 24 June 2017 - 14:01:02
Fantasy Jewelry Exchange on Hollywood Blvd, was robbed this afternoon in a brazen attempt by a lone gunmen to rob the store. Its reported by witnesses that a disheveled tired looking man in his 30's, who was armed with a handgun, and what looked like an explosive vest of some kind. Entered the exchange during the end of business hours and demanded an undisclosed amount of jewelry and money from staff.

While initial reports claimed the suspect has escaped. His body was later found several blocks away. Dead from an apparent self inflicted gunshot wound to the head. The police are withholding the suspects identity for the moment citing an active investigation. Offering little in the way of further details.

However, sources involved in the investigation have been quoted stating that "none of the stolen property was found on the body of the suspect, and that the possibility of accomplices is being investigated".

In the meantime, the police have attempted to cut off access to the several blocks that suspect may have had access to during his brief escape from the Exchange. As a sweep of the area is undertaken.
