Hey K&S you missed an amazing day!
so I caught a banshee in Arthur’s house.
As it is easy for a magician to hide his appearance it is a very high
likeihood this is the real Arthur and the one people see is a stooge.
(Well that stooge is set now assuming he goes all Kagemusha).
Anyway I leave it for the kids to get him out to feel included, they
do funny drek like cable tie a wood spoon to his neck (they are
vulnerable to wood, not allergic heh).
They find out there is 120k to earn of the Banshee (though 75% go in
taxes and handling fees), he has to be dropped off to the Police
Station in St. Kilda.
Anyway K, do you remember that sitcom from 2042 called Living with
Burnie, it is getting remade, just been reading about it.
It was first based on the film 90 years ago called Weekend at Burnies
where they try to hide the fact their “host” is already dead.
2042 did the same thing but Burnie was a veteran who was full of
cyberware and the two characters controlled the cyberware through
cables to make him look alive.
The new one is similar, but involves a technomancer…
Anyway I decided it looked like an idea for some fun and illusioned up
a hawaiian shirt, some sunnies and fedora and Magic Fingered him like
a marionette. "Arthur"is now my “Burnie”
I was amused, strangely this group took it in their stride.
We met with “Gjoni” and it was decided that we would take Burnie to
the cops, before they pushed more for the death of the banshee first,
I gave them illusionary handlebar moustaches to distract tham and like
cats with the laser pointer they dropped it. Enough that they even
let me guide the show.
So my “theory” is bring in a dead banshee is dumb. You are admitting
you murdered someone to the police, which you will be arrested and
then when they discover it is a banshee might let you go (trick for
people, infect your target then kill them to get away with murder). If
you a SINless you now get a Criminal SIN and this gets all ugly.
So I marionette in Burnie and Batmanic is with me, most of the others
were leery and stayed back (which is a shame, but oh well they miss
out on the fun).
I plan to hand over the subdued banshee avoid the murder charges…
The alarms go off, apparently they have sensors on everyone entering
looking for facial recognition cues, skin temperature, etc to help
identify people and characteristics… like banshees.
They over ]react and I stand still with Burnie while the doors close
and shutters come down, it is very loud and people are screaming a
mindspeech to the guard the banshee is unconscious but he ignores it,
okay concentration time, I drop my two illusion spells (Burnie costume
and handlebar moustaches) and just about to “influence” the guard to
Batmaniac pulls out is hatchet and is thinking of killing Burnie..
Hmmm, now I cannot remember but I might of mindwhispered him to do it,
to be honest it was all too exciting and Batmaniac is well… a maniac
with a hatchet thinking of killing this person in the front door of
police station… who am I to stop his dreams?
So Batmaniac starts chopping his head off like a drunken mexican and
everyone is screaming. I need to save Batmaniac, he is fun
What I love is that he is chopping the head off with the steel axe
head when the wooden handle on it would actually be better since they
are vulnerable to wood. But I do not tell him, he is living the dream
and I do not want to ruin it for him but he does that himself when he
gets too excited and hits himself in the head with his own axe…
see what I mean???
Burnie wakes up and starts to make Batmaniac frightened and I have to
interrupt with exploding his head with a spell. Four people get
covered in blood and I am sure that Batmaniac is a good chance for
going Wendigo on us… I ask Babd to give him a hand and she agrees as
he is too amusing to die here.
Three police come in the front door to check us out
The police riggers blow the three unarmoured people covered in Burnie
Goo away and Batmaniac vanishes from sight.
Now I needed to get the attention of the police to let Batmaniac slip
out the front door…
It could not of gone better!
Oh I just noticed my neighbour (who works as a writer for “Anakie”) is
telling his partner about the latest script runthrough, I need to find
out what happens to Troy and if he is infected by the ghoul; I will
write again later…
