Saturday June 6th

Karma and Next Game session
Cedrick: 5

Radcliff: 5

Well, you managed to make an anonymous call to the police to get the cult you stumbled onto investigated. It hasn't made the news yet, but after only a day, there isn't much news for the police to tell. You didn't actually kill anyone, so unless someone rescued them before the police arrived, any good investigator should have been able to determine that something really bad was going on. So you shouldn't have to worry about those guys anymore...

Lu Bu seems mostly back to normal. He's somehow managed to break his bed twice (the frame was broken in the middle, like a troll had been jumping on it). After two breaks, it was replaced with a heavy metal frame. He can still out-eat the troll, but thats something you can live with (everyone knows a skinny guy who can eat more food than anyone else... kinda like to eating contest winners, they are always the skinniest people...).

The weather's getting cold, and you haven't heard from the gangers that threatened to kill you yet.

For interesting things in the news, “ghoul town” is opening up. Its a high-profile event, a community of ghouls has been invited into the city, living in their own section. Obviously their diet will bring a lot of trouble to them, so the police will be making extra patrols in the area to curb hate crimes. (OOC: It is common knowledge that ghouls eat metahuman flesh; at least a pound a day. They can get it from local mortuaries, but this doesn't make people feel less threatened.)

There's a new charity organization opening another chapter in town. Master Ken has suggested that all of his students check it out. The Universal Brotherhood is the new name for a group of charity organizations banding together. They run dozens of their own charity missions, and help other charities as well. They are also big on promoting peace and community, sponsoring family friendly performances for entertainment, and encouraging people to get engaged in local politics. They do a great job motivating people to help. When they take on a project or assist another charity, people just seems to pop-out of the woodwork to help. Most notably, they help refurbish or renovate abandoned buildings to make low-cost housing or even small single-family homes, and the run at least a half-dozen homeless shelters and soup kitchens in the greater Chicago area. In addition to feeding and housing the homeless, they do a good job reeducating them and getting them back into middle-class society. Many of the people they've helped in the last couple years have become notable civil employees, and a couple are running for local office (various city council positions).

OOC: More to come before morning.

Markus has been researching Lu Bu's symptoms as best he can, but there's nothing that makes any sense. No legends or even shadow stories exist that match what few symptoms you're willing to expose to public communication channels. The closest you can find is complaints about how some new experimental bioware makes people who possess it eat a lot more.

None of the native american stories told by his grandparents even come close either.
Well, those of use that can see into astral can tell that he doesn't have any kind of bioware or cyberware, correct? If so, we can rule that one out.

I know that I don't have too much of a connection with Japanese culture, as I believe that I'm more of an North American Japanese person than a Japanese Japanese person, but I do check with some relatives that might know about ancient Japanese history and culture. As I asked before, isn't eastern dragons oriental dragons?

Check out my other post for other things that my character is suggesting.
