DECEMBER 1931

Dec 14, 1931 - Redland Jack group leaves from Inverness for Sandø Island, with Carl Ellis' group along with crewman John Elwar, and passengers Redland Jack and Henrik Mueller. This island has been uninhabited since a shipwreck in the 16th century which left survivors stranded for several years. The survivors of that eventually founded a clan/cult which would later become the village of Bailey.

Dec 16, 1931 -
Arrive at Sandø. Stay overnight after doing a ritual to investigate for signs of the influence. There is a roughly triangular hollow with vaguely serpent-shaped columns of stones in the corners of the hollow. They find a hole hidden by a flat stone down to a rough-shaped chamber with room for two people.

Dec 17, 1931 -
Late afternoon, the Augusta Queen goes on to Streymoy (the main Faeroe Island port), leaving John & Henrik on the island. The port is strangely quiet, they learn due to a rash of influenza.

Dec 18, 1931 -
Ship stays on Streymoy, where they are unloaded and not fully re-loaded due to lack of people because of the plague. Henrik stays sketching on Sandø with John.

Dec 19, 1931 -
The Augusta Queen leaves the Faeroes early in the morning.

Dec 20, 1931 -
Arrive at Aberdeen in the evening. Hansen shows a crumpled ad for Hardeen the Mysterious from the early twenties, brother of Harry Houdini.

Dec 21, 1931 -
Arrive in Edinborough in the morning. Arrive in Reith, near Bailey at 11PM. After arranging rooms at the inn, they all walk through snow towards Bailey. They are shadowed by a Fae named Andrew, who tells them news. Nearby, Carl, Rebecca, and Auda do a ritual to open the ley line going into the village. Carl and Rebecca are exhausted by this, and Auda nearly goes to attack the church, but he is knocked unconscious by Erich. The group meets at the inn later.

Dec 22, 1931 -
The party goes to Bailey. They arrive little over an hour before the solstice, which is around 11AM. They find a manor house under construction and a church-like building built around a pyramid, but no people about. The church is on the ley line, and they go down steps under the church.

They first encounter a giant scorpion creature, which runs after Hansen shoots it. In a room later, they find 30 people in a trance watching a column of light. They are a distraction, a simple energy source for the Lady. In a room following, they find 10 villagers also in a trance, facing a display of four human skins. Constance is nowhere to be found, though. There is a small chamber adjoining this where they can feel a psychic connection.


They attempt a ritual with multiple parts. They disrupt the Lady's ritual. Auda carves a symbol into the floor of the chamber and activates it with his blood. Using a silver paint pen given him by Carl, Henrik draws pictures of the three guardian statues that he had studied on Sandø Island. When the ritual completes, the guardians come to life. After staying at the back and in corners for a while, Jack inexplicably tries to attack them, but Henrik fends him off. John commands them to take the Lady back to her prison, and they obey.

AUGUST 1932

08/01/1932 - 08/04/1932

08/01 -- Dr. Ecker, JT Williams, James O'Keefe, and Victor Grayson find themselves thrown together at the Irish Rose tavern in Detroit, owing to events relating to "Katie" Flynn. After a violent encounter with the tavern's proprietor, the four men discover a hidden box which contains personal letters in French, a map of Los Angeles, and a strange medical journal. Dr. Ecker reads through the journal, which details a strange infection, with which Ms. Flynn appears to be inflicted.

08/02 -- Led by O'Keefe, the group goes looking for Reverend Scott. Dr. Ecker, JT, and O'Keefe visit the Herman Keefer Hospital for Communicable Diseases, where Dr. Ecker has an old score to settle with Dr. Philips. The four men locate a 5th letter belonging to Ms. Flynn, which has already been translated to English. The letter raises more questions than it answers, with allusions to Weiss, Steele, Petit-Jean, Fae, Communion, and Flynn (and one other guy, whose name starts, I believe, with G).

08/03 -- The group locates Reverend Scott at Clark Park. There is something peculiar about the way his sister paces behind the small group of people he is haranguing. They follow Mr. Scott, and he and his sister appear uncomfortably close. The group also follows Dr. Philips from the hospital. They steal some strange vials he has hidden in his car. JT sets up a meeting with the Purple Gang for Thursday.

08/04 -- The four men meet with the Purple Gang at an Italian restaurant.

08/05 The four men meet in the Irish Rose to consider their next move. Williams recruits Drifter Joe and Dr. Obediah Walters.

Daniel Macklin is murdered, and left hanging by his heels from the ceiling of The Irish Rose.

08/06

  • Ecker, Williams and Joe kidnap Dr. Phillips as he leaves from his golf game, and discover details about the Fae blood condition (without that name).

08/07 Lila gives Katie Flynn the injection of serum from Dr. Ecker (the serum developed by Parkhurst).

08/08 A new manager is hired at the Irish Rose (Susie Q). Mysterious Russians seek an audience with Lovejoy and the Irish Rose crew. The Purple Gang tasks JT's 'gang' with importing unspecified items from Canada on the 12th (Friday). A wealthy woman, Voisoine du Montaine, gives Obediah a strange elixir after causing a scene at the Irish Rose.

08/09 Rev. Scott (allegedly) sprouts tentacles and devours one of the agents at his ministry. Obediah follows Voisoine from her hotel so that he can 'accidentally' run into her at a bar. She offers him a job producing the mysterious elixir and gives him a check for $2000.

08/10 Michael Barnes (the presumed leader of the government agents that were trying to capture Scott asks Victor (who agrees) to lure Scott to an isolated area so that they can capture him without alarming people (Victor instead warns Scott). Victor meets again with the Russians and returns to the Rose with an offer of a meeting (to be held Thursday or Saturday).

08/11
Irish Rose crew meets with Harvest Trust.
They also have Delphinus set up a meeting for them with Parkhurst.

08/12
Delivery for Purple Gang from Canada turned out to have wine, whisky, and at least 1, possibly 3 kids in a comatose state. (Turned out to have the 2 boys and 1 girl, all around 9-11 in age.) A courier from Harvest Trust showed up to give Doc Walters a retainer of $100.
Talk with reporter Frank Lovejoy that night at the Irish Rose. That night, the same courier girl, Delphinus, returns to say that Parkhurst will meet them at 9 the next night. (...) Lila and J.T. follow her leaving and see her disappear into the shadows in an alley.

08/13
Found that the Russians spoke well of Harvest Trust.
Met with Parkhurst in the Rose.
He talked about the "necrophagic" disease, which over the course of it replaces the body, making the host stronger and more perceptive, and heal super quickl, and makes a need to drink blood.
The elixir replaces the need for blood, but creates a dependence, and they can no longer process blood after a while.
Parkhurst talked about Carl Ellis who was the founder of Harvest Trust. Also about his own clinic, the Parkhurst Institute for Medical Research.
J.T. told Parkhurst about smuggling the kids for the Purple Gang. Parkhurst said he would do research and track them down.

08/14

  • Bought a farmhouse from a farmer with cash from Voisson, to use as a base for producing aqua vitae.

J.T. sent for his cousins Rufus and R.J. to oversee the brewing and distilling half of the operation.

Irish Rose crew investigate Canadian site where children were first picked up.
Recover some leads on a guy named Farbeque.

08/21
Lila, J.T., Casey, Walters, and Lovejoy journey through a portal to the Seelie Court.
Note background - there were 7 bodies at the site of the rescue attempt, including 2 known Purple Gang members - plus 3-4 blobs of ichor.
Photographer Casey develops his pictures of the burnt documents from the Canada farmhouse. He has lifted out good information on the 4 pages of medical notes, and semi-good information on 2 middle pages of a personal letter.
The medical notes are a rough draft, written in a man's handwriting. It concerns a mutation in the Condition - not the one that Parkhurst talked about or the serum.
Olivia says she was attacked and knocked out in her house in Britain outside Bailey about 1 year ago. She only heard of Parkhurst from her kidnappers - as Regent to the Queen of the Seelie Court. They moved around the world, including Egypt where a rescue attempt happened in Thebes. Thebans set the house on fire, but then Paige St. Mar chased them off using illusions. The boss was not a human or someone with the Condition - he had eyes with pure-black irises, tall and big with brown hair.
Jason says he is from Ohio and then later California, where he was kidnapped from a house near L.A. He says he saw Parkhurst once when he was in that house.
They report that Ricky was an American who was kidnapped last.

At the Rose, there was a note from Voisson that she will be in town on the 25th and will meet there.
Parkhurst arrives in the evening, fresh from a fight. He says to keep the Katie-Maturin letter a secret.
Matthias Dargon was a mover and shaker from before Parkhurst's time - not a Fae. He implies the time difference and longevity, but hasn't said it clearly.
Doc Walters admits that he was taken by Parkhurst to the community on the 14th to talk to people - he is mysterious about this.
Parkhurst takes J.T., Lila, Lovejoy, Casey, and Doc Walters through the root cellar into the community - supposedly in New Jersey, though the glow in the sky suggests something strange. There are apparently ~300 with the Condition, ~200 human staff, and ~400+ companions and other humans.
They meet Theo - a man in pseudo-Renaissance-style clothes with riding boots. He tells them that the children were kidnapped to be used as tools by Devarney. He intended to infect the children with a disease to strike at the Fae, inducing an atavism to a feral, animalistic state like the "Before Times". Devarney is dead now.
He explains the time ratio of 60:1 with the community, and the Fae immortality - saying the oldest ever is around 1500 years old, while around here the oldest is probably around 300. He refers to the "Before Times" - before the Queen took over 3 years ago. After at first saying that he didn't know about them or their parents, he reports that their parents are dead.
He says that the necro-phage is from Outside the universe, from a dangerous dimension that will begin incursions starting in October in New York. The three communities: Seelie Court in New Jersey, the less civilized Unseelie Court in New York, and the dangerous Enclave in eastern Europe (Devarney's group).

Theo wants to understand what is where the children were going (to get at the heart of the plan to try to use them to infect the community).

Learn that Parkhurst found out that Ricky is in Kansas City.

According to Doc, Parkhurst says that he gave Katie his journal.
The Seelie court was created here 6 months ago shallow world time. A woman named Hanna, who also became Medea in 1929 just before the night of miracles, who also become the Queen. The Queen is a separate power figure - the Queen of Air and Darkness, while Medea is the one who brought the change (in France in 1929). The community was only created 6 months ago; while the Fae took residence about 4 months ago.
The necrophage came here in an incursion ages ago. Those infected go into a 3-day transformation after they seemed to die. They adopt a new name and personality. They used to live alone or in small family groups. After many centuries, they beco
me incorporeal Elders. (Vandervecken, who was killed in Kansas City a few years ago, was 700 years old and just recently became an elder. He is leader of the Unseelie.) There is magical life force, called the Ambient, which started rising years ago and took a giant leap up about 3-4 years ago. A group of Elders contacted the Enclave, who became riders of the Fae of the Enclave, allowing them to survive the Ambient. He says that the Fae cannot do magic.
The Seelie and Unseelie have non-aggression agreement, and were both transformed by Medea.
They arrange with Parkhurst to meet with Hannah.
She explains the current theory is that the space come through is inhabited by entities - some thinking, some not - and the barrier to that space is weakening. She believes this entirely, and wants to help...
Parkhurst found his serum a failure and stopped work on it. He sent copies to Theo Weiss and Mr. Ellis. Hanna asked Parkhurst for the serum; he refused; loyal Seelie beat him up to get the serum from him. He then gave the journal to Heather, telling her to take it far from the Seelie.

Elders crew arrive in New York, late afternoon. Amanda and Maxine spend the afternoon looking through books and papers recovered from the Pentheus Building. Andrew goes to survey the warehouse where Edward Chandler has indicated the collection jars are taken to. After getting a good idea of the layout, entrances and exits, he goes back to the hotel, planning to return later in the evening with the rest of the group.


08/22 JT, Victor, and Obediah (and maybe Lila) remain behind at the Seelie Court for a couple of months, while the others return.
In the evening, JT, Victor, and Candide meet with Axler. Axler indicates that something big is going to happen in the next few weeks and he wants the Irish Rose crew to be involved.

08/23
Victor and Candide stakeout Cooper-Levitt's house and see Farbeque leave. They decide to break in and poke around.

08/24-08/27
Irish Rose crew meets with Voisoine but nothing is fully determined.
They locate the (probable) home of the third missing child, Ricky.
