Ekaterini Tsakalidis aka The Lady of Laundry (played by Chepe): Godling of Hygieia and Minerva. Face-changing clothes-horse with history as a Mob assassin and crime-scene cover-up artist. Tagline: “Never let them see you sweat.”
- Tercallus aka Callum “Cal” Parker (played by Will): Theogenic Demigod. Thrill-seeking, jaded, time-warping high stakes gambler coalesced into existence over a decade ago in an alley outside a casino for reasons unknown. Tagline: “Time is malleable.”
- Theroikon (played by Jenn D.). Theogenic demigod. Patron of urban wildlife. Shapeshifter, naturalist, and the party’s literal though somewhat reluctant combat monster. Tagline: “Mess with my people and I’ll show you a silent spring.”
- Winfred Timotheos aka The Friend (Played by Chris D.): Demigod of Philotes. The friendliest person you could hope to meet in Las Vegas and leader of a philanthropic Society/Cult. Tagline: “You know they say that a stranger is just a friend you haven’t met yet, and it’s nice to meet you.”
- Julie Wilms aka The Assistant (Winfred’s Ally): Human, probably. Former covert agent turned convert. Now spends her time assisting, guarding, and herding Winfred. Tagline: “Time to go, Sir.”
Previously . . .
After scouting out the Thule Society’s building and reconvening at the hotel. None of the Thule Society noticed them which meant that they could easily go back to the hotel without being observed. Ekaterini had to leave for her own purposes for a while, so only Callum, Theroikon, Winfred, and Julie are left. At least half of the group wants to get some charms to veil their presence and there’s only a few avenues available, freelancers, the Bluebird Society, or perhaps a demigod from the Thule Society’s lists that has some ability with Channeling.

They spend a good amount of time going through the files and checking out the Dark Web. The next day they reconvene and go over things. At the top of the list from the Thule Society is two potentials.
One is theoretically a combat demigod but the dossier says that he’s a drunk, a son of Ares, known as Arnold B. Zann. The notes do not say that he’s a drunken master, but while he was deadly at some point, he’s very much no longer a threat. If he was sober, he might still be dangerous. The notes say that he drinks at a place called Glass House. The abilities noted on the sheet is that he’s really strong, really tough, and good at pretty much any sort of combat, but the fact that he’s been in a drunken stupor for the past several decades isn’t giving him any benefits, something happened in the 80s and he just crawled into a bottle and never left it. He pays for it via bar tricks and a trust fund set up by other Olympians, who normally takes care of their golden children, before he fell out of favor.
The second potential is Sarah J. Pokorny, also known as Pokie. She’s one of the better magicians in the area that the Thule seems to have believed they had a chance of taking on and winning in a fight. It’s said that she’s the daughter of Thoth and therefore knows. . . stuff. One of the reasons she’s been marked is because she’s been cut off and disowned by the Egyptian pantheon thereby meaning that she’s got no protection granted by them. They don’t have a static location for her listed, just that they know that she’s in Vegas as she’s been divined as being around the area, something in the future is going to happen where she’s able to be sensed. Theroikon and Callum finds this promising as it should have some kind of veiling ability.
Since there’s nothing on the dark web that Julie can find, they ask about hacking into casinos and running facial recognition on the camera footage to try to find something, but with her boss having been recently kidnapped she’s a bit myopic on the situation and refuses. Winfred, meanwhile, stays to the sauna area since he’s not allowed near windows and, therefore, the pool or most of the room. Kevin, Casey, and Shira help Julie out with small things while Theroikon tries to enjoy the pool in fish form but finds it too chlorinated for his tastes.
After Action Report (GM)
This session wasn’t much to write home about. The PCs did some dickering back and forth on what they wanted to do when we next met up and I was happy they were doing some planning. They seem intent on taking down the Thule as fast as possible (which is a good idea even if it’s going to be difficult as hell). Overall, short, but it was great seeing everyone.
This was cut short by a family emergency and we didn’t get to play long. Chepe was also missing having prior social engagements he needed to keep.
