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.

The young Guardian slightly bowed his head. To the Seer, he said "Do you have any other information that could help us? One of his connections, or his providers, or one of the people that dropped out of business lately, would be a-plenty. "


In his mind, he went through possible ways to corner this forger.
They could check some of the other messengers to be sure, but those were most definetly a dead end.
They had some names courtesy of Don Spaghetti, possible contacts.

If that didn't check out, they'd have to go at this from the other side. "Ugh."

"The competition are mostly hopeless and that is at their best. Both your side and my side would use Matter or our own connections to procure what we need, no need to be involved in the petty criminal activities involved in acquiring the materials. The competition in that market are Sleepers and you're dealing with a Mastigos." Hanover smiled at Blackstone. "We all can guess it. No sympathetic connections, mundane cutouts acting slightly out of character and a lack of Matter. Simple two plus two." The Seer shrugged. "A smart Mastigos can run circles around Sleepers. Hence why the competition are hopeless - it was never a fair fight to begin with for them. As for connections or providers - you have evidence and I am sure that you have your own Pentacle channels of inquiry. You also know what your target desires."

Mirv put on an oblivious expression. "I do?" He threw Blackstone a glance: If that was it, let's get out of here.

"This Seer is too affable for my tastes. Memo to me: bug Blackstone about what the story is here."

Salem nodded, and glanced across to the others. Yea, that would be enough questioning.

Hanover seemed to smile when the pair of gentlemen from the Pentacle went silent.

Blackstone showed no emotion, well no emotion that he was not already showing in the conversation.

The Guardian finished his drink and held the empty cup in his hand. "Well we should let you get on with your day."

The Seer nodded. "A pleasure to meet the three of you." He spoke to the trio with a friendly smile.

"It was... an interesting experience" Mirv said with a blank face.

Hanover smiled.

"I am sure that it was."

Salem forced a smile, and tilted his now empty cup to Hanover. Yep. Never happened.

"Stay out of trouble." Blackstone nodded at Hanover.

Hanover returned the gesture. "Don't go doing anything dumb."

The Guardian stood up and led the way out of the coffee shop.

They foursome walked for a few blocks as the Guardian switched sides of the street randomly, doubled back and worked to flush out any tails. Finally satisfied that they were not being followed he stopped on a quiet street and grinned.

"So was that what you were expecting?"

"Partly. Less obviously malicious, no twirling mustache" Mirv offered. "You sharing some history was a bit surprising, but makes sense, because how else would this kind of contact be established? Seemed genuinely interested in taking care of his business, which I did not see coming, but he was also prepared to take action- in case something went awry during the meeting I suppose. Observant, relaxed and intelligent. Not someone I'd want to cross paths with unnecessarily, and certainly not someone I want to remember me. He's dangerous. Good sense of humour, though, I'll give him that."

"He had a respectful rivalry with a member of the Mysterium who died in the Incident. In the aftermath he got a bench dedicated to her memory in her favorite park and made a pretty large donation in her name to a charity that promotes literacy and access to education in the third world." Blackstone pressed his lips together.

"Too many newly Awakened individuals pick their side and assume that everyone else in opposition to them are evil fanatics and monsters. That's true in a lot of cases but in far more they are just people. Once you can't see them as people anymore it becomes almost impossible to read their intentions or understand their motives since you can't see them as anything more than the Joker."

"Do you really think being friendly makes up for the fact he's trying to suppress humanity's right to Awaken?" Salem asked, curiously. He could see them as people with individual motivations, but at the end of the day, the man was still fighting for slavery.

"Nobody's perfect." The Guardian of the Veil shrugged. "Better than Cannibal Banishers, Soul Eating Tremere, Fanatical Seers, Left Hand nuts worshiping the Abyss or Pentacle Mages who pull Jackass stunts with Vulgar Magic. Everyone's an asshole from some perspective."

Both had a point. But Blackstone's reasons were very close to his own. "If it means I am better at predicting his next move, understanding his train of thought, and able to thwart that, I am more than willing to recognize he is a flawed human being with intentions he probably considers noble like the rest of us. He can be friendly and affable for all I care, he is still on the other side of the war and thus a danger. If there is even a snowball's chance he might come around, though, that would be a tremendous win. The insight into Seer work routines alone would be worth the effort. As long as we can make sure he's not a mole, of course."
Mirv shrugged. Someone higher up the ladder (Blackstone) made a call to trust this guy, and despite his hatred for the Seers, he could kind of understand the reasoning behind it.

As long as he could be reasonably sure it wasn't emotion clouding Blackstone's judgement, he was willing to arrange himself with the situation.

Salem just shrugged, "Maybe. So we have a plan of action now?"

He glanced to Mirvalad. He'd seemed like he was on to something, but Salem hadn't wanted to give anything away that he didn't have to.
