This was an idea I whilst writing up the session notes. Seeing as the game is somewhat focussed on the Cabal, and I can’t have NPC’s talking all the time, here is some narrative away from the PC’s spotlight. Hopefull this will begin to forshadow some very nasty plot progression coming their way.
+ Excerpt of Inter-Guardian Messaging Dated Two Day’s Ago
C: To give you the head’s up, we’ve got some heavy Seer activity from London.
NH: What kind, do you require Caucus Assistance.
C: Negative. They aren’t Active. Only mobilising, as if for a contigent to move.
NH: Keep me posted C, I’ll get JD to ask around.
Dated One Day Ago
C: They moved. Certain. Location found: Nottingham. Repeat Nottingham. Code Indigo. VIP sighted.
NH: Details C dammit, JD’s gone offline.
C: VIP is an Under-Secretary. Repeat Under-Secretary.
C: Tell me about it, apparently U-S is moving to solve the “Gated Issue”, couldn’t find more.
NH: But it is coming here?
C: Yeah, I have no idea about JD but U-S is coming. Expect Change of Tide.
