Tea With Bowser (Salem, Mirv, Lilah)

The streets of Manhattan, constantly in the shadow of the towers in more ways than one. Here is where all Mage scenes and glimpses go.

Salem smiled, "Well yes. You know you're going to meet one, so that's a start."

With Blackstone's mention, Salem threw up the death sight as they walked, not bothering to chant high speech first.

"I can certainly appreciate that," The Moros answered, and took another, slower look around the street with enhanced vision, looking for any less obvious 'spooks', "I suppose it's too much to hope he's a sympathizer, eh?"

"His goals usually don't involve murdering Pentacle Mages and therefore he avoids doing so since I think he hopes that one day the best of us will see that his position is the right one. I think that several of the Mages on our side who know or know of him have a similar point of him eventually seeing our cause as right." Blackstone shrugged and led them down a side street towards the next major north/south running avenue.

Salem could see a single ghost at the end of the street, it had no distinct features and just seemed to be watching them.

"So until the status quo changes both sides hope that neither gets killed by all the things that want to kill all of us and / or eat our souls."

Salem nodded, "He's not going to change sides, I think, but as long as he's not directly working against us for now, it's a non-issue."

The Moros looked around again, and settled his left hand on his belt buckle, "For some reason, I am reminded of this quote I heard once- an open mind is like a fortress with its gates unbarred and unguarded."

Instead of commenting, Mirv carefully listened to the discussion. He seemed very quiet.
So this was Blackstone. Interesting Guardian. He might actually end up liking him.
Mirvalad remembered to throw up a spell to be less noticeable. "Trustworthy" Seer or no (oxymoron in and of itself, in any case), he wouldn't want to leave a more lasting impression than necessary. He also tried to open his Third Eye, but listening to the discussion was too distracting. The spell fluttered when Salem mentioned the open mind, and prompted by Salem's remark, the sleuth hardened his mental defences instead.

Lilah followed and listened keeping her mouth closed. Her hands were in her back pockets as she nodded here and there to the conversation flipping through mentally what she should be preparing spell wise.

"The world is black and white only to those who are removed from it. For the rest of us it's gray, although not with fifty idiotic shades."

He crossed another street and the group approached a small, nondescript cafe. There was another of the faceless ghosts near the door and the establishment was being Warded (plus a Ban) from the inside.

Salem smiled, and tried for a joke, "It is if your monochromatic, and don't have the knowledge to fix it."

When they got to the ward, his mood turned sour, but he kept his mouth shut. This was the part where he stopped talking, and let Blackstone do the whole cold war spy routine.

Instead he took in the building and did a tactical analysis. Entrances, exits, areas open for ambush, high points around the building where snipers could be hiding. Obvious ghosts, and obvious traps where a ghost could be waiting.

The location probably had a back exit (it had to for fire code) and the front approach was narrow. The cafe had a narrow store front and that continued inside - the counter ran along the left side of the store and between it and the wall there was room for about three average sized individuals to stand shoulder to shoulder. Before and after the counter there were tables - one on each side of a central path through the cafe.

Nobody was in the front. There was one person on the counter. One table in the back, mostly hidden from the street, looked like it might be occupied.

Lilah moved and kept up, keeping her mouth shut but her eyes open.

As they entered the store they noticed the Forces and Mind effect over the further half of the room - where the lone man was sitting at a table with several empty chairs. The effect, from a basic glance, appeared as if it would prevent others from understanding the true nature of any conversation in its area - instead those outside the small radius would hear what they wanted to hear.

The man was in the "gunfighter" position with his back to the corner and he greeted the group with a friendly nod.

Blackstone nodded back but stopped to grab a coffee (home brewed) before moving on.

Blackstone motioned the trio to follow him once they had their drinks.

"Hanover."

"Blackstone. And associates."

The Guardian took a seat.

Salem made his way, with drink, to a comfortable seat. He raised his cup to the man in recognition, but kept his mouth shut. For now.

Mirvalad absentmindedly grabbed a coffee and followed. Like Salem, he kept his trat shut (not an easy thing to do) and instead focused on 'Hanover', trying to get a read on the man.
