Missing Children Case From 2014 Bittersweet Ending
Posted by fangwulf on Thursday 24 August 2017 - 12:05:08
Elly and Simon Horton had gone missing while their mother was in the hospital under treatment for glioblastoma. To her last breath, she promised she would never stop looking for her children. Today, in a heartbreaking and startling discovery, six year old Elly was found alive on the fourth floor of a local hospital. Authorities and hospital officials are stunned. The hospital had been swept top to bottom with no sign of the children.

In a tragic twist, Simon's remains were found with her. Authorities have not released a statement about what they believed happened.

"I only know," Kenneth Horton, the children's father said in a statement, with clear emotion, "that I'm so happy to have Elly back. I'm hoping we can get past this horrible event and get back to being a family."

Elly has been put into psychiatric care to address severe post traumatic stress symptoms.


Strange Behavior in Wake of Solar Eclipse
Posted by Galileos Lens on Monday 21 August 2017 - 13:24:44
Monday saw the first solar eclipse to cross the entire continental United States from coast to coast since 1918. And while many were looking to the skies, some seem to have been strangely affected by it. Reports have come in across the U.S. of spontaneous and unusual behavior by eclipse watchers. Most simply stopped watching and wandered or even ran off, disappearing to the befuddlement of friends and relatives. Others exhibited a marked change in behavior. The concentration of these events seems strongest along the path of totality, radiating outward along the course the sun's shadow took. Experts are at a loss to explain what some are dubbing "Eclipse Sickness."

While all of the country lies within the path of the eclipse, the path of totality will pass well to the north, with the maximum in Los Angeles being a lot like a classic crescent moon in shape. There will be incidents of this sort in Los Angeles; though significantly fewer in number percentage-wise than in areas closer to the full shadow, the sheer volume of the population will make it a widely-known occurrence, and the affluence of the area means that many more will have made the trip north or east to see the full eclipse.

On another curious note, there are numerous verified reports that clouds and storms which would have blocked out the eclipse seem to have dissipated in most of the country long enough for it to be visible.

(( In game terms, expect mysteries across several game lines. If you wanted to be a Changeling returned or Mage awakened because of the eclipse, speak to the appropriate ST. And expect... surprises. ))

Strange Behavior in Wake of Solar Eclipse


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 2nd.

(( 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.
