BREAKING NEWS
Another large Earthquake was felt in Asia today, making the eighth 6.0 + rated Earthquake since last month. The Quakes started around the 16th of January, and Seismologists are baffled as there had previously been no tectonic movement, until suddenly there was.

This of course has raised a number of End Times scares, one Church already having had a mass suicide in response. Seismologists are studying the phenominon, in lieu of these events and as of yet have nothing to report.

Repercussions are being felt world wide, the earthquake that shook the Mid Atlantic ridge last week sending a Tsunami that has finally crashed on the coast of South America, the half heading for Africa due to hit withing the next few days. Authorities were able to evacuate a majority of the population, but due to those who refused to leave and a few scientists, there have been a few reported deaths. There is no solid number for the death toll at this time. There has been no word from Cuba at this time, though tidal storms and hurricanes have been bombarding the islands of the gulf and Mexico rather badly. the Campeche Oeninsula has seen some of the worst weather for mainland Mexico at this time, but sources tell us, most everyone has evacuated best they can.

Jonathan Levi is seen on TV with stills of the band in China. “This man, who conveniently just went in to government contracts with two allied countries, appears out of “thin air” in China with a group of questionable individuals and manages to get out within a day with no word or announcement? Is that really the kind of people we want arming our troops?”

Before he gets to the part about demanding the group be labeled traitors, the scene is switched to a conferences with Desi. She’s talking about how the Band is known as a humanitarian group, clips of each of them, even Ihui, doing charity work (including that one time Guillermo lost a bet and had to come long with Meja and Ihui pre-visitations) She explains that after the band had accounts from impoverished and oppressed individuals from around the world of the deplorable conditions of jails all across the world (see very specifically this – http://www.state.gov/documents/organization/210160.pdf – state department report on international prison conditions) the Band decided to pool their resources and energies to do something about it. She is quoted to say; The TV shows a picture of Desi with text scrolling down, anchor reading.

“We knew that getting actual evidence and details would be very difficult due to the lies and spin foreign governments employ to downplay atrocities in their countries. As such, we knew our best bet at getting as close to the truth as possible would be to arrive overseas and be placed in these jails first-hand.” Desi again at the press conference: “Some may call this stupidity, or nothing more than a publicity stunt, but let those stones be thrown by people who have put their reputations and their lives on the line to see first-hand these deplorable, atrocious conditions all across the globe that millions have been subjected to. We will fight for humans on the front-lines, and we will do it unapologetically. Any who would speak against our choices wear the same faces of tyranny that we have discovered in human rights violations all through the lands. I will pray for them.”

With the Natural disasters continuing, the band is brought together by Eric Donner, upset and coming to Roman in desperation after Tori recommended the Scion of Thor come to him. Tori was busy dealing with issues with his apparently estranged wife, and Donner needed help. He appeared with Dr. Aaron Tigrillo to implore the band’s help once all were gathered, saying that Donnie Rhodes and Brigitte De La Croix, their bandmates, had not died or committed suicide, but were murdered.

The band agreed and going to Donnie’s apartment in LA, Guillermo was able to reveal that there was in fact foul play involved, specifically in the shape of Leviathan. Meja also determined that while they were not in their respective underworlds as they were supposed to be, she would hopefully be able to track them.

Game 12 - Demigod Celebration Party
or The Death of Gordon Shaw and freeing Fenris

The band, summoned together by a note from Baron Samedi, found themselves gathering in a swamp around a fire in New Orleans. At some point they all received a fortune cookie that the fortunes all matched reading;
“Beware Chinese influence. You have an altercation in your future. -Ihui"

This came on the heels of everyone having a different dream about being attacked in some way by Chinese related forces, but no one could yet put together any clues to figure out what it meant.

When The Good Baron appeared, he was wheeling a flat scree TV with remote, though it didn’t seemed to be plugged in to anything, and greeted them, turning on the TV to the news. NEWS STORY CNN News Jan

Giving them a rousing speech about what they were doing and where they needed to go, he pulled Desi off for a little conversation before returning to New Orleans, as the concern over the Underworld cracking was growing. And not unwarranted either it seemed. Shortly thereafter, Loren said the Baron had called him and required their aid in downtown.

The heroes arrived to find ghosts, Chinese demons and a powerful Restless Dead controlling them to attack the people of New Orleans. Behind him, Gordon Shaw was crucified on the building top, and the Scions knew this was the Monkey-King’s scion’s nemesis. After a long, arduous battle, the vanquishing of the Restless Dead Emperor [Xiang Lu]], a strange effect went off and the Scions found themselves in the middle of downtown Hong Kong.

Arrested by the authorities for appearing out of no-where (a fairly BS reason, but such is the way)m while sitting in jail, the Scions received a text from Ihui that read; “And thus, did the doors swing open and the righteous walk free into the world again.” After this they were released.

Returning to NOLA via The City Incognita, Loren, who’d not been ported with them, let them know the Baron had set up a funerary right for Gordon back where they’d been in the swamp. Returning there and burning wishes for their fallen comrade, The somber moment gave way to determination.

Building on an idea Guillermo and Meja had discussed, the band decided to try and get the Sword of a Fire Giant to try and free Fenris.
