Episode 2-4
Sunnydale    6:02 pm. 

Initiative base underneath Lowell House

Three of the four Initiative agents are in the mess hall eating dinner.

The fourth, Agent Smith is watching the monitors.

Our four heroes are going about their business.




OCC: Post at will. About 2 and a half hours have passed.  Indicate what your character is doing/has been doing at the Initiative base.

Re: Episode 2-4
After consuming her "homemade" vegetarian pizza, Annabelle spent the rest of the afternoon looking through the Initiative's computer files.  It was tedious to say the least.  As she expected, it was new typewritten font, not scans from actual occult books.  She would be sure to point that out to Michael if he deigned to join her.

Since she didn't know the exact spelling of the type of demons they faced earlier, finding information on them (if it was in here at all)would likely take some time.


Annabelle Berkshire rolled 17 using 1d10+7. Research Kotar demons.


OCC: Remember we playing the game know it's spelled Kotar, but the characters in the game don't since the demons neither spelled it out or wrote it down for the characters.  I predict Annabelle will find something with that roll.

Re: Episode 2-4
Just then, Annabelle finds what she's looking for:


Kotar Demons

Appearance-humanoid shape with green skin, large black eyes with no pupils, human like hair.

HST attributes- Can extend three claws from each hand of variable length at the HST's mental command to inflict edged damage. No other natural weapons.  HST can be terminated in the same fashion as a human, but has a high tolerance for pain. Is not as vulnerable to edged weapons or firearms as a human, but can be terminated in this fashion if sufficient damage is inflicted. Requires oxygen to breath and can be suffocated as a human can. No known vulnerability to specific form of damage. HST strength and dexterity variable, but can reach extraordinary levels.  HST travels alone or in groups of variable size.

Re: Episode 2-4
Annabelle raises her eyebrows.

"I say, that's rather good."she says upon finding the entry.

She looks to her left and finds what appears to be an intercom system. Pressing a button, she speaks into it.  "Everyone come to the computer room quickly.  I've found information on Kotar demons.

Annabelle then turns back to the entry and begins to read.

Re: Episode 2-4
Mike spent most of the time resting. As predicted, his natural healing did most of the necessary work, but he could still stand to take it easy for a few more hours.

"Yeah, that fits."

Re: Episode 2-4
Annabelle frowned when she finished reading.  "That was less informative than I hoped.  Nothing about their code of honor or other notable behavioral traits.  But then that's what you get when the entry is written by a pack of nancy ninja boys rather than an actual occult book. Look Michael, it's not an actual occult book scan. That would be expecting far too much from these people.she said pointing to the screen.


She rereads part of the entry on their abilities; "If this is all correct, you can slay them the same as a human being.  You certainly proved decapitation is effective. But they aren't as harmed by firearms or edged weapons as much as a human body.  That is common of most demons, they don't have as many organs or blood vessels as a  frail human does.

She looks over Michael up and down.  "Or in the case of a vampire, most or your organs don't function anymore.  They're like a squatting tenant not paying any rent."

Mike nodded.

"That's usually a good thing. Particularly when I get shot."

Re: Episode 2-4
Graham ate his double meat pizza while trying to think about their hosts. Graham had not heard anything about reactivating the Initiative base before he left.  "I know things are bad here with Buffy and her friends gone, but how did the military know there would be a problem, so many months ago," Graham thought to himself.

After finishing his food, Graham went back to the main room to talk to the Agents, hoping to find out more about their mission and hopefully their capabilities in case unwelcome visitors came calling.

Re: Episode 2-4
Graham spent the rest of the afternoon talking to Agents Goldstein, Goldberg, and Goldfinger.

They explained their mission is to guard the base.  Period.  If college were still in session and 100 vampires showed up to attack the student body, they weren't to interfere.  Their tracking/sensor capabilities only went as far as the Lowell House property. As far as weapons go, they have enough to arm about ten people altogether.

If there is a greater purpose to their presence, no one told them. They talk rather freely with Graham, since he is one of them after all.

As 6:00 pm approaches,the 3 agents head to the mess hall, leaving just Agent Smith on monitor duty.

A few minutes later they join everyone in the computer room at Annabelle's announcement regarding Kotar Demons.

"Scary looking monster."says Agent Goldfinger looking at the Kotar Demon entry.  "So you people have encountered one of them?"

Re: Episode 2-4
Mike nodded.

"We did. I managed to decapitate one of them rather brutally, but as it was a duel of honor, I was obligated not to interfere with the other duels."

Re: Episode 2-4
"Yes, this is an unusual lot of demons.  They fight with honor and expect their enemies to do the same.Annabelle said, rereading what was on the screen.

"That bit of information would have been a useful addition to your files. she said, making little effort to hide the contempt in her voice.
