  • The Sword of the Ever-Thirsting Vampire

    This unusual blade, also known as Spatha Strigoi Însetat, is not a true Klaive or Grand Klaive, as it is not forged in silver or invested with Gaian spirits. Instead, it was a prize taken in battle by one of Razvan's Theurge ancestors. After vanquishing …

  • Shining Burning Finger!

    Zero's cyber-weapon is his own design, plus some inspiration from his favorite anime, built by the Nanospider colony that's taken up in his brain -- and clearly migrated out into the rest of his body. Lacking any other ready source of Gnosis to empower …

  • Eye of the Simurgh

    Willow's fetish eye has replaced her flesh-and-blood eye, but seems as functional as before. When activated, she can use its special insight to subdue enemies (or possibly friends?) without killing them...or, it may just be the prelude _to_ killing them. …

  • Chapter 1: Welcome! Now get to work.

    The Garou Nation is beset with crises: don't think for a minute that Baltimore represents the _only_ last stand for desperate skin-changers on the verge of losing territory. The situation in Baltimore is just one of many. But while wandering packs of …

  • Fourth Story: Keep It in the Family

    It's a sad statistic: about 800,000 children are reported missing every year in America. And while 97% of them are recovered, _consider the other 3 percent._ Human trafficking, prostitution and sexual slavery, forced labor, even poverty-stricken parents …

  • Fifth story: Under Siege (Regnum Irae)

    It's been just a few days since _Last Call's_ triumph over a bunch of Black Spiral Dancer hill-folk, more cunning than clever, but clever enough to have spirited away who knows how many human captives and perhaps even some Kinfolk to an unknown fate in …

  • Sixth story: Ghost Trail

    Some months have passed since the Black Spiral Dancers' failed attempt to take the Sept of Abundant Grain. Surviving the siege has been good for the Fianna, along with everyone else there, it would seem. The youngsters of _Last Call_ are not the only ones …

  • Interlude: Downtime!

  • Interlude: Downtime! pt. 2

  • Third Confluence: Downtime!

    Our next instance of downtime will see the rise of the reborn Sept of the Hidden Spring, and some parting shots/RP with the regional packs and Garou who came just to help make it happen. After that, we may have a few months' downtime, as the new sept's …

  • Story 10: Long Pig

    Brace yourselves, friends, for your first guest storyteller. Dave will be entertaining and horrifying us for the foreseeable future. Perhaps there will be *DOOM!* He should be able to fill us in with some commentary below, and if not I'll just do it …

  • The Road of Trials: Downtime!

    After the mind-shattering events of "Hush":http://rage-across-baltimore.obsidianportal.com/adventure-log/story-11-hush, it's not clear what the characters will do next. Rites of Cleansing, hot showers until your skin is raw, or bleeding...but who to talk …

  • Fourth Confluence: Downtime!

  • Story 13: Forlorn Son

    In our next guest-ST story, journey together to the farthest of the north to aid Long Runner, the Red Talons, and Mammoth! It will take Razvan's skills in modern medicine, and Zero's high tech expertise; no doubt there will be something useful for the …

  • totems

    *A pack's totem* is one of their strongest ties that bind them together, in spite of whatever personal disputes, rivalries or domination games packmates may play. Pack members choose the totem that they feel best represents them, although it's the totem …

  • Roster of Banes

    p. Banes are the spiritual minions of the Wyrm, more numerous than fomori or Black Spiral Dancers. Although they feed on dark and corrupt energies and may spread them as well, they may not necessarily be the cause. Those that materialize in the physical …

  • Glass Walker Tribal Gifts

    Glass Walkers have some specialized Gifts, the result of spiritual innovation and discovery. Gifts known to the Tribe can be taught to Garou of other tribes, and most GW's will readily do so -- the more people who know it, the more it will be developed -- …

  • Rogues' Gallery

    Just a place for the players to store what information they discover on their opposition, if you'd like to keep track of the vampires, fomori, dozens of Black Spirals, and miscellaneous miscreants arrayed against you. The real noteworthy ones may get …

  • Talens

    While Fetishes are rare items requiring great effort to create, Talens are far more common. Even a fairly inexperienced Garou can create a Talen. Unlike Fetishes, which are permanent until either the Garou releases the spirit or it somehow breaks free, …

  • Gifts -- Systems

  • Sept of the Exiles' Rest

    [[File:372050 | class=media-item-align-none | Farm.jpg]] *The Sept of the Exiles' Rest* is Willow's old home, and a safe place for the Metis of the Garou Nation to be born and raised. A small caern of Calm, it is a rarity both for its particular type …

  • The Legendary Realm

    [[File:719728 | class=media-item-align-center | 500px | LegendaryRealm.jpg]] _Note: Tribal glyphs represent regions of tribal dominance, where many ancestors may be found._ The Legendary Realm is a place that never was, but should have been. In it, …

  • Vaughan Evenhand

    Vaughan, like the other Fianna at the caern, counts among his ancestors the founders of the Sept of Abundant Grain. This latest generation of Fianna have not yet lived up to the deeds of their mighty forbears, however. They have held the caern thus far, …

  • Willow "Gluten Free" Shaeffer

    Willow's metis flaw is easy to spot; she's an albino, with violet eyes and a certain exotic appeal to her. Willow has some history with the Garou of Baltimore, although she was not raised in the city (for obvious reasons). Having survived the painful and …

  • Moira Leaps-into-Shadow

    Moira inherited the position of Master of the Rite at the Sept of Abundant Grain, and of the four elders at the caern she might seem the least friendly and welcoming. The relatively minor caern might have once been a nice place to settle down after years …

  • Tracker-by-Moonlight

    Tracker-by-Moonlight is the lone wolf (lupus) in a sept full of homids, and a city-wolf to boot; it is an unusual situation, and likely a good story if anyone cares to tell it. Tracker's post as Warder of the caern has taken on additional importance since …

  • Líadan Wind Across the Hills

    Líadan's official post at the sept is Keeper of the Land. Among the Fianna that's a bigger deal than one might find at other caerns, where some may not bother with one at all, or it may be at best an afterthought, left for lesser ranked Garou to maintain …

  • Fade to Black

    Fade to Black, or just "Fade" to her friends, was a racing motorcycle enthusiast before she Firsted. Although the social and spiritual ties of tribe and pack and sept bind her to the Fianna caern, she still longs to suit up and go racing around the city, …

  • Brenna Deathsong

    Brenna is a tough firebrand of an Ahroun, more interested in drinking and brawling than the typical Fianna tale-spinning. At least they have the beer covered here. Unlike most of her packmates, Brenna welcomes any troubles that beset the caern. Having …

  • Mikhail Argentclaw

    What's this, a Silver Fang being led around by a Fianna, and stuck on guard duty rather than leading his packmates in glorious battle? Mikhail carries himself with all the regal bearing one might expect of a pure-bred Fang, and of all the Grog …

  • Sophia Davenport

    Sophia was born and bred into a life of charmed, perhaps tainted, luxury. The Davenport family is one of wealth and privilege, having provided her with a fine education. Although they once had a hand in the steel industry back in the city's more …

  • Felony, Griffin and Penance

    Social terrorist punk cells are the Ascension Warriors of the Hollow Ones. They don’t stick to the subtle synchronicity of coincidental magic, and they prefer brawn and action to brains and mellow goth-itude. They tend to specialize in the ability to …

  • Stainless Steel

    Stainless Steel is a stain on the honor of the Glass Walker tribe. Once a high-ranking tribemate and Gatekeeper of the Sept of Unbroken Synergy, his defection to the Black Spiral Dancers was instrumental to the fall of the skyscraper caern. Worse still, …

  • Tanner Hayes "Loki's Grin"

    Tanner is one of the many Black Spirals that called the Shattered Glass Hive home. Unlike their Gaian counterparts, the fallen tribe seems not to have the same population problem, at least in Baltimore... For one of the Spirals, the smiling villain …

  • Ryan Crawford "Bright-Eyes"

    As hard pressed and short on friends as the Sept of Abundant Grain may be, the Fianna elders still have a few contacts and allies in the city, along with other wanderers like Bright-Eyes. As one of the wereraven breed, the "Corax":http://whitewolf.wikia. …

  • Zero "Treebeard"

    Just a placeholder for Zero's growing back-story. Spawn of a now-dead Cyber Dog and an as yet unknown Kinfolk parent, Zero was implanted with something ... mysterious and cybernetic as an infant or child. He grew up in a socially stunted, sort-of …

  • Seth Tracy

    Willow lives with her Kinfolk boyfriend, Seth Tracy. Seth and Willow both grew up on the same Children of Gaia communal farm. A nasty machine accident and an absent healer left Seth with a crippled leg. His "deformity" and her metis flaw naturally drew …

  • Madison Gables

    With the chronicle currently set in early to mid-September when the pack meets Madison, the heat is starting to break in the city, and she'd just started the sixth grade in school at Collington Square, a struggling city school on the southeast side. That …

  • Razvan "Spine-Render" Dragomir

    Razvan comes from an old, very wealthy family of the Shadow Lord tribe -- a family with strong ties to the tribe's ancestral lands in eastern Europe, but also a family that has little reputation for fighting the Wyrm directly in modern times, perhaps they …

  • Kim "Iron Eyes" Metzger

    Iron-Eyes is the last known survivor of the _Sept of Unbroken Synergy_ in Baltimore, once a powerful skyscraper caern of the Glass Walkers and the seat of Garou power in the city -- now a corrupted Hive full of Black Spiral Dancers. Spirits of Wisdom knew …

  • Gordias

    Gordias was the master of disguise who went with Last Call on their spirit quest into the Abyss, providing a few tidbits of knowledge to their Theurge, Willow, and what favors he could from his shapeshifting talent. In forming a pact with the new pack, …

  • Brickbat's Ratkin Buddies

    The *Ratkin*, so the stories go, were given the task by Gaia of keeping the humans in line, culling their numbers through famine and pestilence. In the time of the War of Rage, the Garou sought to command the other shapeshifter breeds, the _Bête_; in the …

  • Bone Gnawer Stomping Grounds

    The wandering home of the city's Bone Gnawers nurtured Brickbat for a time, after his First Change. He might well still be with them, if not for a chance meeting with the Black Spiral, Tanner, who may or may not have lumped him in with the new arrivals …

  • The City Father of Baltimore

    City Fathers and Mothers used to be rare, a century ago more the stuff of rumor than an acknowledged phenomenon. More citified Garou theorize these spirits are increasing in numbers along with the proliferation of computer networks. All that copper wire …

  • Faerie Kin

    *The Charm City Freebooters:* *Lady Miranda Moonwhisper* - A tall, solidly built young lady, bit of a stunner, really, with cheekbones that could slit your throat, and from her expression she just might do it. If her ears were a little more pointed... …

  • Scully Mac Brón "Seven-Songs"

    Scully looks to be about 30, easily the eldest of the pack (by age, if not by rank). Since most metis experience their First Change around the age of 8-10, their equivalent of puberty, and a homid Changes around 14-18, Scully's had around 20 or so years …

  • Fear of the Dark

    _Fear of the Dark_ came through for the pack during their conflict with some of the city's infestation of "Leeches":http://rage-across-baltimore.obsidianportal.com/adventure-log/seventh-story-desire, scouting out a target for the pack's ire: the so-called …

  • Social Justice

    Social Justice is not the youngest of the metis cubs being raised by the Sept of Exiles' Rest, but she may be one of the more precocious...or rebellious. She and Willow grew up some together -- Willow's not as old as she looks! -- but the success stories …

  • Alpha Mike Foxtrot

    _Alpha Mike Foxtrot_ is a large pack, unusual amongst the Garou for incorporating Kinfolk directly into the pack. These Soldiers of the Dies Ultimae camp specialize in kinds of warfare that could be considered terrorism -- assassination, property damage, …

  • Antonine Teardrop

    Antonine (an odd old name, perhaps old Latin that became Anthony or Antoinette) is a baffling old remnant of a small and dwindling tribe, the Stargazers. Some years back, most of the tribe left the Garou Nation to return to their embattled tribal …

  • Loba Carcassone

    The pack first met Loba at Antonine Teardrop's observatory in the Catskill Mountains of New York state. Her work deals primarily with children and the abuse many children suffer at the hands of the Defiler Wyrm, but she may come across just as wounded as …

  • Troubleshooters

    A cagey pack of city-wise investigators from central Europe, possibly cubs or Cliath on their own Rite of Passage, but Glass Walkers Zero helped with a particular task as part of his own challenge for Adren rank. As Zero establishes contacts with the …

  • Jessica Volk

    The pack first met the Kinfolk attorney when the Garou Kin of Baltimore came under threat, although her place in a suburban gated community seemed the least likely to be attacked by the Black Spiral Dancers. In spite of her marriage, of course, Razvan was …

  • Nightmaster

    Although many Garou, spirits and other denizens of the World of Darkness have passed through (and into) the _Abyss_, it's said there is only one permanent Garou resident, _Nightmaster_, a Shadow Lord and member of the _Society of Nidhogg_. No one …
