Wrapped up a great session of Unhallowed Metropolis just now.
It was Grendal/Jesse’s first time running after playing several sessions as Fabien the Dhampir vampire hunter.
There was only usmelinuk and I today as everyone else was busy.
Some hijinks involving the death of a Mourner during her vigil for some extraordinarily rich and aristocratic families dead son, the disappearance of the body and some shady goings on with a blacklisted former Mourner.
After a lot of running around, threatening and investigating it turns out he’s not quite as dead as we thought - not quite alive as I suspected - and is arm in arm with what turns out to be a Promethian (Frankenstein’s monster). Unwilling to be captured the Promethean blows both their brains out in the private box of some sketchy ass theatre called the Cirque du Monstre.
Thanks to some callousness and general dislike of the nobility on my part, we managed to con the - mostly - aristocratic audience in to thinking this was all part of the show.
In the meantime the disgraced former Mourner disappears after being spotted outside the theatre and the noble family bury a coffin sans-son.
All in all a lot of fun, but thoroughly expecting dear old Henry Abbot to wake up dead - which is actually feasible in Unhallowed Metropolis - any day now.
Aside from one pissed off former Mourner, I’ve got to deal with both Special Branch - a bunch of Psychics and weirdos with very little oversight - prying into the incident and an aristocratic family keenly interested in keeping things quiet.
