Another loss

After thos loss I had to find a way to bid my time. I have been having trouble getting what I need done. I jsut dont know what I need to do some times. I was clear but that does not always create what I want. This week. I want to spend more time getting items that I need. I really have a desire to make my life better. Living in a van is great but the cops always need to ask multiple questions that I really dont feel like answering or spending time in jail again.

So I need to find a way to make money that will get me out of debt and a way that I dont end up out of my mind. My goal here is to be wealthy enough that I dont need to think about the things that I need. I should get some sort of crew together. People that can help me get what I need. It will be a small crew that can help me get certain pieces of art that can be moved easily. I figure three comptent people would do it. I have to be careful who I hire and how I go about it.

I go through my contact and have found nothing so far. I will keep looking at figure a better place to live than the side of the street. My next big socre is around the corner. But I need to use the money to funnel my dreams and not some ones elses.

Moving On...

The others have all left now...except me. Staying behind wasn't an easy choice, no sir: this place isn't right somehow...Chuck says everyone & their brother fancies themselves some kinda Monster Hunter here.

Wonderful. Took the wrong step in the Twilight Zone, for sure.

Still, the Ghouls have depleted this boneyard long ago. Chuck & I talked about it; half will go with him, half will go with me.

Not all Ol' Chuck & I talked about either. Told me how he did it also, his magic trick for getting the kind of fugly that I came across naturally. Good to know? Seems like it can give a lifeline to the dying if you don't mind...the side effects. I also read the Cardigan journal, as well as some notes on some crazy book "Cult of the Ghouls" or whatever. Seems Ghouls have always lived near folks, on the edges of society, eating the dead. Sometimes even swapping out youngins on the way, changeling style. Funny that, Ghould kids look just like Normal kids...until they get a bit longer in the tooth anyway.

Is that what happened to me? I was always a Ghoul & never knew it? Would explain a lot, what with givin' ladies the creeps all this time. Book also says that the kids raised by Ghouls also usually become Ghouls, & some people just turn into Ghouls by doin' as Ghouls do.

That last bit also makes a lot of sense.

Not all I learned from the notes either..."Let the duplicitous knave not be afaid to dine wholly on his enemy, so that he may, after fully consuming his flesh, partake in his wives & concubines in the flesh & likeness."

Exit Edgar Stokes, make way for John Cardigan.

Full Setting Description

The year is 2020. At first glance, it appears to be the modern world you are familiar with. Cars, people going to work at McDonalds and Starbucks. If you stand long enough, you'll notice you see very little cash changing hands, nearly everyone preferring to use cards. You notice a flyer, on every other telephone pole in Manhattan, with a unfamiliar logo and an armored Humvee, that reads "Please report anyone suspected of supernatural activities directly to the Bureau of Homeland Security." The culture of Xenos, as a whole, seems similiar to our own. There are constant skirmishes around the globe, but most developed countries have managed to avoid major wars since WWII (Due to sorcerous influence of an unidentified nature, there were a series of outbreaks of Undead in the aftermath of WWII. This hardened many major countries against the idea of mass-casualty events.) Shadow agents backstab each other for secrets, indebted to their employ. Though the supernatural isn't commonplace, it would be safe to say that its more common than people *think* it is. In the sewers, tunnels, underground crypts, and dark shadows of alleys things lurk. Some unknown, some intelligent enough to hide, and yet more, actively on the run. To win, is to find an edge. The powerful, the rich, the people who take charge and manage to *hold it*, must have an edge and many find it. Despite the mainstream's paranoia, and most governments 'enforcing the peace' with a iron fist, there is demand for an edge. Where there is enough demand, a supply will arise. There are nuances to the line of what is, and isn't, "supernatural" and simply science, entertainment, or allies- only natives of the cell will be privy. Unknown to most civilians, there is high black market demand for occult paraphenalia. Never in the open, and the origin is often unknown, but supernatural incidences do occur. Massive PR campaigns have been in place for decades, heavily ingraining "Anything inhuman can kill you.", with gruesome images of crimes committed by supernatural entities. Many will run, hide, and seek help immediately upon seeing anything monstrous and unexpected. It is well known that the 'Department of Homeland Security' will confiscate things, and people, and have the authorization to contain supernatural 'situations', including execution of civilians in severe cases. (Cults in 'crisis mode' or areas with the bad luck of being 'infested', being bombed into oblivion at range is not unheard of to contain severe situations.)
