{ This is an open post for all in the thesanctuary_rp  including Cabal and transient characters | Basically, once darkness falls - the Cabal make their move on the Sanctuary | The Sanctuary eventually survives - but it is a very close call | Helen Magnus will be charging any damages to the Sanctuary building to your accounts... }





It is an unremarkable Thursday afternoon. Cold, as it always is at this time of year, and particularly grim with the passing haze of rain that coats the sandstone walls of the Sanctuary. Everyone has been on high alert of a Cabal attack for months but the feeling of impending doom has worn off enough that the residents have lowered their guard.

The Cabal have waited for this - and now they're coming.

They don't just want this decayed building in the middle of Old City - they want the whole Sanctuary network. Once the sun settles behind the hills, they will begin.

And all through the Sanctuary,
Not a creature was stirring,
Except all the Abnormals on the way to the party...


Yes, it's Christmas Eve in the Sanctuary and there's a party ready to celebrate. Chat, drink, eat and be merry. Just be careful what you do under that mistletoe ;)

As everyone's probably aware by now, our original Magnus had to bow out (thanks, RL, for repeatedly slamming both mods at once). On the upside, it didn't take us long at all to end up with a new Magnus :) 

lanna_kitty will shortly be joining us as dr_helen_magnus so let's make her at home and do what we can to help her catch up. Thanks, all and, as always, good gaming.

Will's been humming violin concertos to himself for days now, lost in a haze of what's almost contentedness that he's afraid to examine too closely for fear of losing it. In retrospect, he'll be muttering a lot to himself about jealous gods and counting your blessings while you damned well can.

He smiles when he sees Morgana's picture on his phone. "Hey, Morgana, what's up?" he greets her cheerfully.

"H... help..." 

The word is weak, slurred, barely discernible, and Will immediately springs into action, firing off an email to Ashley and calling Henry on his desk-phone.

"Henry, I need you to trace a cell location ASAP!" he barks into the phone as he types a message to Ashley to gear up and meet him five minutes ago.

Just so everyone knows, I do plan on getting back into tagging soon. Sorry again for the delay *kicks RL*

In the meantime, we have some new (and one not-so new) players who you may or may not be aware of who would love to interact with you

Dr. Dana Scully red_skeptic (the X-Files)
Dr. Elizabeth Weir redandsolitaire (Stargate: Atlantis)
Colonel John Sheppard solitary_flyboy (Stargate: Atlantis)
Noriko Ashida/Surge coolblue_rebel (X-Men)

In further game news, we'll probably be getting several new players in the next few days:
Hinata byakuganheir (Naruto)
Inuyasha tetsuisaiga (Inuyasha)
Buffy Summers slays_in_heels (Buffy: the Vampire Slayer)
so keep an eye out for friend notifications from them :)

I think that's everything. Thank you all for bearing with me in my absence and, as always, if you have any questions or concerns, let me know.

The Cabal facility in the foothills outside of Old City could be mistaken for just about any private (albeit massively large and surprisingly well-fortified) research lab. Except for the fact that it's been completely off the grid for a good three months now and is apparently still running at full power.

Thus one paranoid burnout of a former profiler sending a pair of Sanctuary heavies to figure out what's going on.

Not too late to turn back, kids...

(ooc: this'll start Ashley->Declan, then eventually go Ashley->Declan->Cabal, and finally Ashley->Declan->Cabal->Nori ... once they're out, you can go to Ashley->Declan->Nori. sound good to everyone?)

So everyone knows, there's a new face in town. Agent Owen Harper of the UK represents a branch of British Intelligence code-named Torchwood (yes, like the television show which apparently exists for the sake of plausible deniablity). Torchwood's remit appears to overlap somewhat with that of the Sanctuary (in Agent Harper's words "shit too weird for the stupid sods Downtown") so, for the time being, we will be working in a loosely cooperative relationship. Agent Harper may be coming and going from the Sanctuary in the following weeks and months. You are asked to extend him due courtesy; however, his jurisdiction in this country is limited at best. No one is required to provide him with anything they'd rather not. If he gets pushy in his requests for information, please contact me immediately as Agent Harper seems weak on both interpersonal communication and professional boundaries. 

If anyone has any questions or concerns, feel free to email me, call me, or find me in my office or around the Sanctuary.

Just to make everyone aware, we have a new guest, one Micah Callahan, a protean (he expresses a preference for the term shifter). The Cabal is gunning for him so let's do our best to make him feel at home. He's also asked me to advise everyone to not be alarmed should they see a leopard moseying around the Sanctuary; it's just Micah stretching his other pair of legs.

If anyone has any questions, email, call, or find me and I'll be happy to address them for you.

Part of her wishes that it wasn't the gravity of the situation reuniting The Five (or the four remaining members, including her protege), because it's been over a century since they've occupied the same room, and this is a much anticipated event to her.

Magnus sets out brandy, wine (for Tesla), cigars, and arranges the chairs and couch in her office for five bodies to sit comfortably.

As comfortably as this can possibly go. She has no doubt the room will be ripe with tension in just a few moments time, which is why when she takes a seat on the end of the couch nearest the illuminated fireplace, her fingers are laced tightly together on her lap, and concern is etched into her face.

She glances at her watch. Five minutes till the top of the hour. They should be arriving soon.

"Let them not all act like children," she murmurs under her breath.

[OOC: For posting order we'll try Magnus/Druitt/Tesla/Will/Watson. Behave, gentlemen. Or, you know... not...]

ATTN: All Sanctuary Residents

It has come to our attention that there has been an increase in the number of abnormal residents of Old City reported missing by their friends and families. At this time, it’s important to note that there does not currently appear to be a credible threat to the Sanctuary itself, however there have been too many disappearances to dismiss as having vanished by mere chance when there has been no corresponding increase in the number of non-abnormals reported missing.

For the time being, we are asking all residents to exercise extreme caution. Please do not leave the Sanctuary grounds without telling a member of the staff where you are going and how long you plan on being away. If in doubt of your skills at self-defense, ask someone to accompany you. Even if you use the “buddy system”, please remember to inform a member of staff about your intentions to leave. If you leave with a member of staff, inform a member of staff who will be remaining on-site.

If we have any questions or concerns or if you just need to talk, please email me or visit me in my office or room any time of the day or night. I want to be here for all of you through this time.

Magnus and I will be keeping you all updated.
