  • 362) A Strix has shown up, it's taken up residence in a female reverent but has offered to vacate if anyone wishes to uplift her. The Strix doesn't seem to have any agenda but will converse with the kindred of the city about kindred and Strix nature, the reverent's body is sometimes damaged but such damage seems not to bother the entity within.

      The Nosferatu have dug too deep. They have uncovered a series of artificial caves and ruins beneath the city. Carbon dating shows the ruins as millennia old. Way older than the anthropological record says that humans or Kindred would be here. Worse, all the adventurous Kindred wanted to see what the fuss was about and one of your coterie members or and NPC was taken down into the depths by some sort of lizard like monster. The bad news is that the Prince wanted the depths mapped anyway so you've just volunteered. The good news is that there seems to be strange creatures in the depths, that are able to sustain Kindred. Almost like a full ecosystem.
      Basically Dungeon Meshi with vampires.

          The local Ordo messed up- as part of their experiments, they have tried to create a perfect weapon: a Kindred tailored to destroying his own kind. The found a homeless veteran, embraced him, and put him through a tight regime of training, scales, more training. They succeded all too well.
          They didnt expect him to overcome His guards, hunting down kindred and Going On a Diablerizing spree that even the sheriff, despite being an elder, could not hold off against. Sure, the enhancements, scales, potions Etc are going to wearing off in a few days, leaving him just a moderately-powerful Fighter With A Lot Of Experience, but no one knows this except for a few Defiant, and who knows who he will target meanwhile?
          And will the Coterie use this Situation to garner favour with the powers that be, or are they seeking a Revolution? What will they do when they find the recipe to unlimited physical might?

            The Prince has forbidden cellular phones from Gatherings after a few neonates have gone "missing". The cacophony whispers that get didn't disappear, instead their cloths and phone were found dusted with their own cremains. Rumors say the last image on their phones were selfies in the same spot and cloths as their cremains were found, and that the phone had a new camera app called "Nite Owl Pics", a camera app which claims to be optimized for poor or artificial light, "Perfect for Immortalizing your Night Life" is their slogan. The juiciest and most insane whispered detail is the phone had an Aura, and that aura had Diablerie stains!! The Keeper of Elysium has been treating phones as weapons since these incidents have occurred, and several Elders have nearly gone mad with technophobia, purging their havens of anything electronic and "dining in" as much.as possible. No one is sure if a Strix has an Embodiment or Dread Power which allows it to Diaberize vampires through the app (though that is the most popular speculation), it is technological Devotion or Scale, or

            Coincidentally the rate of Spontaneous Embraces among night-club goers has risen, especially since a few seemed to have died in their sleep without blood-loss, and after investigating deeper those Spontaneously Embraced happen to be of the same clans as the vampires which died under those strange circumstances. The mortals also took selfies the night before they died in their sleep without blood-loss, and the selfie has the same minute on the timestamp and was taken with the Night Owl Pics app. The selfies stand out enough to be noticed because the person's eyes appear glowing yellow with dark black iris slits. Even after this is all discovered and pieced together, it only raises more questions....

            The App is available for free for download in Google Play, with a 3.4 star rating and over 90,000 downloads. Its icon is a shadowy black cartoon owl winking with a smile, with the letter of the apps name spelled with pink neon lights. The app's company is de Vil LLC, a privately traded company based out of PO box in the isolated town of Rachel Nevada, and an IP address in Nigeria...

              A new vampire whose never been your city before. He goes by the moniker "Doctor Zlato" and is a strangely mannered Mekhet Ordo Dracul, who according to the cacophony was originally an Alchemist in 17th century Prague. Currently he is known for three things: Being quite an expert of supernatural sites, having a network of haven safe houses around the world that he loans out as favors, and has has the connections to make secure discrete vampire or relic transportation between cities and countries. Those interested in leaving their current city or acquiring exotic mystical relics from afar are often drawn into his circles of influence because of these two latter traits.

              In this particular visit he came to town bearing mystically useful gifts well suited for all the right people to gift to, and authentic letters of introduction vouching for him from vampires with meaning connections to elder vampires of this city. Many are suspicious of him but he gains favor with others. After he has procured a few haven spots for his travel network, he begins questioning younger less prestigious vampires about modern urban legends of the supposedly haunted or cursed sites. He doesn't seem particularly interested in ghosts themselves, though the history at the actual site that interest him. Following him is quite difficult due to his mastery of Obfuscate, but if he was able be followed to his haven he simply use a Devotion that appears similar to Unmarked Grave but can be used indoors without enough space to meld into and doesn't emerge from a location which can be be found.

              Since he has arrived he's never been seen hunting, but whispers from Kindred whom keep apprised of the of homeless community spin tales of vagrants squatting in abandoned structure disappearing has increased to a rate which implies supernatural feeding devouring a while person each night, even if a night or three are skipped later a similar sized group a vagrants will disappear all at once.

              He has the Devotions Embrace to Genius Loci and Go to Nowhere. He has a Hungry Doorway To Nowhere with him, which he uses for safe haven in the day and freely gluts himself on the vagrants it collects for him so he can leave each evening. He is looking for a Strange Place which has the Awakened Environment so he can make another Hungry Doorway To Nowhere for one of his many Childer in Eastern Europe, but is also happy to extend his research into other supernatural location based Devotions.

              If the domain of Seattle isn't already defined within your Chronicle, might I recommend several of Doctor Zlato's childer be involved in the Ordo ruling council of Seattle, and he has has contributed in their research to make the Memory Biopsy Devotion there, and that Doctor Zlato is intending to gift the Hungry Doorway To Nowhere to his Elder childer there instead of Europe?

              Anyway, this turns into a story in several ways, the PC could want to deal with Doctor Zlato, or perhaps they object to the increase of disappearances of the homeless and blame him without enough status to accuse him without solid proof which is very hard to get. Perhaps the PCs are in a horrible situation and you can use Doctor Zlato and his Hungry Doorway To Nowhere to allow them escape the city when that seems impossible assuming they PCs are willing to bring human sacrifices so he can have they egress to Seattle and have Memory Biopsy remove their knowledge of how they got there due to Doctor Zlato's connections.
