Note: This plot is for the Werewolf sphere. It is concluded.

Summary

  • Following reports of Beshilu activity in Queens following the events of Perihelion, Lex, Yasmine, and Marcy investigated newly exposed beneath a gas station and uncovered a rabid Beshilu hive that had mostly been exterminated. On fighting one of the Beshilu prophets they were told that the Beshilu had heard the cries of something caught in the Gauntlet and sought to free it, and now it was unburdened. Presumably huge and barely able to fit in the tunnels below the city, this same monster that had been released attacked the group who were barely able to escape following the same fate as the Beshilu.
  • Stories have been found of a creature that Father Wolf bound within the Border Marches. They alternate between Father Wolf being unable to defeat it so they sealed it away and the idea that Urfarah chose to bind the creature there to face the threats that were beneath his notice.
  • A powerful earthquake recently rocked Queens, leading to many Safe Places and Loci being destroyed or hindered significantly. This has been attributed to the monster moving beneath the city.
  • The Keepers deciphered a potential way in order to seal away the Border Marcher. The grand rite has a few key ingredients with blood of a liminal creature, the long extinct golden water flower, and a piece of the Border Marcher (spearheaded by Yasmine Ferreira and Kit Reynard of Death Rattle), to be performed at a gate into the Shadow.
  • The Keepers managed to somehow get the extinct flower through unknown means.
  • The Trials investigated an apartment damaged by the earthquake in Queens and discovered a network of tunnels teeming with Beshilu. The creatures have chewed completely through the Gauntlet in some places, and have begun taking live human prisoners.
  • The current plan discussed among the Urdaga responding to this threat is the following:
    • Gather intel about Beshilu numbers and investigate the possibility of collapsing tunnels safely.
    • Using whatever intel is gathered, enter the tunnels to fetch a Beshilu corpse for the rite with the intent of clearing some space out to perform the rite (or at least make a start and return as soon as possible to finish clearing out an area).
    • -Emilia used her Host Ache tell to find a good entrance to the nest. Just off the 75th avenue subway station, the Beshilu seem to only use this infrequently, likely due to the passing trains. That does not mean it is clear of Hosts ALL the time.
    • -Emilia ventured not too far in the tunnel to attempt to scout a bit more, ans had an encounter with two Beshilu to help free a woman they had captured. With the help of some crazy guy who kept spouting off things, the pair escaped but was seperated from the woman, so it is unknown how she is doing. The man has been given to Maddie for now to try to make sense of whatever he is saying, and possibly if he has information about the Nest that may help.
    • Once the flesh and location is secured, perform the rite while others hold off the incoming threats.
    • This is anticipated to be done in collaboration with the Forge Alliance rite to help with the use of gifts and the Hunt.
  • A group of Uratha raided the Beshilu tunnels intent on apturing them for blood. This failed, but they were able to find a place that they will be able to hold the rite.
