Vampire: Duluth — Character

Posted in Duluth Characters, Duluth Game on April 11th, 2006 by Mary

Vampire: Duluth – Character

Name: Cecelia Harrigan

Clan: Daeva

Apparent Age:

Cecelia Harrigan was born to rich parents and a priviledged life. Her parents are both from old money families in New Orleans. Being beautiful, polite and well-mannered were the focus of her upbringing.

She did well in prep school and that led her to college. Her general lack of interest in the simpler parts of life lead her to the white collar pursuit of the legal profession. Being of above average intelligence, her studies came easily to her, but she got little satisfaction from her learning.

The level of social interaction involved in her job is the only thing she likes about it. She enjoys the game, and the dance of words in the courtroom. Cecelia depends on the money from her job to keep her in the lifestyle to which she is accustomed.

She has been rising up the ladder in her firm fairly quickly more out of her greed then her skill or sense of professional pride.

Her personal life is empty of any real attachments. Her apartment is beautifully kept and furnished but feels unlived in.

Becoming a vampire pulled her into a new world, where the rules seem to be the same as the old. Power is there to be earned. If she correctly plays the game.

Vampire Update — Duluth

Posted in Duluth Game, Duluth Story on April 11th, 2006 by Mary

Play Date: 02 Apr 06

Game Date: 29 Oct 87

We open with our heroes meeting with Father John at Corpus Christie Church. They wanted to see if he could identify any of the names they seem to be remembering upon waking each evening. He told them how to find Miss Opal. They have also spent quite a bit of time learning about the condition they find themselves.

Father John and others have been helpful to them in learning about their own makeup. They also found two others that have no clue what happened or how they came to be vampires. Tina Baker & Cecelia Harrigan Our heroes have befriended them and helped them out as much as possible. They have been introduced to Father John and Father John advised them to get them to Vidal soon, but Vidal is busy right now with Andrea and trying to find out what the scene at Corpus Christie was all about. The group agreed that they should do so, when he isn’t so busy.

They are learning about the various talents that seem to be inherent to each of their make up. Like Jack & Charles being able to meld with the earth in the first night.  After meeting with Father John our gang of adventurers decide to split up to search for more information.

Jack & Charles went to the Zoo to talk with the wolves to see if they can find out if the myth of werewolves is real or just a myth. The wolves at the Zoo didn’t know. So Jack & Charles set out to the northwest of the city where they found a fox and talked with him about the rumor. The fox wasn’t really helpful, but he did tell them to beware of the east cause “sharpteeth” live there.

Tina, Cecelia, Edward, & Kaspian went to talk with Miss Opal. They learned where Nathaniel Dubois used to live and are going to check it out. Since that is one of the names that more than one of them seem to remember from what can only be the night of their transformation into the creatures they are now.

Update Battletech – Duluth

Posted in BattleTech, Duluth Game on April 3rd, 2006 by Mary

The Gallows Hunters met on 26 Mar 06 and the following are the events that unfolded:

We started out doing some practicing on various skills like shooting and piloting our ‘Mechs. We got into a minor skirmish in with some unknown assasins. Unfortunately, Jordi had a bullet “graze” him in the head, Col. Wilder got shot in the leg and is currently laid up in the med bay aboard the “Hangman”. We found no type of ID’s on the ones we took out in the gunfight, but we did find a fair amouint of House Kurita money on them.

Then persuant to our contract with Kurita we were requested to assist a Kurita lance out in thier engagement with a Steiner Heavy lance. We of course saved the Kuritans. Mikul fell down alot but we still came out victorius. We managed to salvage some of the Steiner ‘mechs: we salvaged a mostly intact Locust, a beat up Jaeger, a beat up Hatchetman. Our techs believe that they can completely salvage the Jaeger, and we are keeping the Locust and all of the ammunition that was available. As per our contract we will be giving the rest to Kurita including our old Locust as thier portion of the salvage.

Upon our arrival back at the dropport base Mikul was given a medal from Kurita for his amusing SNAFU with communications in the field. Mikul had asked Kidd to get him an open frequency to the Steiner lance. When Kidd got him the frequency, unknown to Mikul, it was the command frequency for ALL Steiner forces on the planet. Mikul asked all Steiner Forces to surrender unconditionally to him, the answer was no from the Commander of all Steiner forces in theater. Kurita found it humorous so they awarded him a medal for a valiant effort…Laughs will be had for a long time over that one.

After refit and repairs it was back into the field doing recon work. We ran into a Stiener assault lance and were engaged in battle when a sesmic event struck the planet at about 9 on the richter scale. It knocked part of both lances down to the ground. Mikul radioed back to Col. Wilder on the “Hangman” to find out what happened and he was told to disenegage and give coordinates to the “Rum Runner” for pick up. Kurita is “bugging” out and they want to rendevous with us in orbit.

After the “Rum Runner” picked us up we looted all the supplies left behind by Kurita and other mercenary units. We found out that approximately half a Warship impacted with the planet causing the sesmic event we felt in the field.
