Quote"LSA, BWARE THE SEVEN BLESSINGS MEYER WILL HELP CASEBALNCA BWARE DARLING."
QuoteI was too fixated on making sure a fight broke out.
QuoteRy: We had a little trouble here – if a character's action has already "gone off" because they won initiative, do they get to roll full dice for defense?John: (Yes. I looked it up afterwards.) I was frustrated that I kept defaulting back to "you hit, what's the damage" type of combat narration. I have to remind myself that a combatant who loses the initial roll doesn't necessarily take damage, he still gets to choose and roll his defence. And a "hit" does more than just damage, it should change the situation too.

Serge, whose grip on reality was strained by thoughts of what he was about to do, suddenly turned on Dr. von Braun and attacked his maimed leg cruelly! The unexpected betrayal (and blood for the ritual) netted him 3 victories to roll into the imminent Binding, but nearly tore the group apart. Pete succeeded at a Humanity roll, so von Braun got ahold of himself before ordering Bacillus to attack. Serge wasn't so lucky with his Humanity check; the betrayal cost him a point of Humanity. Well played, Ry!Mike took this as a cue to have Jacques lecture Serge on the horrors of being bound to a demon that he can barely control. It was a great monologue - well played, Mike! - but Serge was determined to go through with their plan. He couldn't rest, knowing that a powerful demon which Needed murder was loose in the city because of him.
QuoteSerge is Catholic. His wife Anna has converted to Catholicism and attends church with him and takes communion.A few weeks after binding the rat Tachyorychtes ('Tack'), Serge was asked by his Jewish in-laws to help them fix something at their bookshop, and to bring his tools. Naturally, Serge agreed, like any good son-in-law, although he puzzled at their insistence that he come alone on a particular Saturday afternoon.When Serge arrived he found most of the Godechaux men were gathered. Serge was asked to help make sure that nothing was damaged as the family set to clearing out "an old unused back room in the basement."Despite the lies, the intent of the enterprise was clear: to open up a new wall in the basement of the Godechaux bookstore. Expanding Jewish businesses was already banned in Casablanca by French decree, and while Serge found the law disturbing he was angry at his father-in-law for drawing him into something illegal.Nevertheless, Serge carefully inspected the structural integrity of the house, and determined that opening up the new wall was probably safe. Always cautious when working with civilians, he sent the various Godechaux kin out of the house so he could get to work.Serge used Tack's conferred materials sight to discern where the weak spot was, and realized one area was particularly vulnerable to being struck. What Serge didn't realize was that he was aiming straight at the entrance to a prison that had been Containing a powerful demon.(snipped: the demon gets out and runs off)
