Tickling The Bad Guys (Dmitri)

Post#1 » October 20th, 2015, 2:19 pm

They were meeting in a safe house way up in the north end of Manhattan tonight, a basement apartment in a building on Post Avenue and West 204th Street. New members had been recruited, gear had been procured, plans slowly beginning to fall into place, and now it was time to set the plan for the first operation.

Robert, Lee Avery, Natasha Lee, Jimmy Dee, Marcus Johnson, and David Sohn were already onsite. Robert and Marcus were fussing over maps, Paladin Lee was sitting quietly seemingly in meditation, Jimmy Dee was checking weapons, and Lee and David were chatting as the Carthian showed off his state of the art computer.

Dimitri had made sure to hunt before arriving at the safe house, some poor sap walking alone a bit of dominate and he didn't have a clue. It was a quick clean in and out job, no time for social nicety's with the food.

Dimitri had most of the needed equipment needed, the ammo he needed + spare and the various bits of security equipment they may find useful. He had brought the last box of equipment with him and placed it with the others, this box contained Radio's that encrypted signals and then de-encrypted them, probably were not needed but it was good to be prepared in-case they all went black ops.

He took the time to look around the room at who was present, he then looked at his watch. He looked at his options.... meditating, no. Fussing over maps... no...talking about a laptop...no. Checking weapons, that he could do.

Jimmy Dee was double checking a foursome of well cared for military grade semi-automatic shotguns, examining each unloaded weapon for specs of dust (none, they were well cared for weapons) and laying out a box of shells next to each.

Mister Blair was the next to arrive, entering quietly and offering a nod to those inside.

"Successful?" Came the question from Robert.

"We are all set." The answer received a smile and a nod.

Next came Alisa Larionov, dressed in plain black slacks and a black top that was both practical and fashionable. She nodded politely at the room when she entered but quickly picked a corner and settled into it, a different corner than the Paladin.

Deputy/Baroness Conti and Revered Caroline Stewart were next, the Shadow dressed in black designer jeans and a purple sweater, the Daeva in designer jeans with a blue blouse. The Revered was carrying a small designer case in her left hand while the Baroness held a fashionable handbag, also in her left hand.

A minute later the Viscount FitzAlan made her entrance, wearing black slacks and a beige top.

It was then that Robert looked around at the gathered Kindred.

"So everyone understand why we're here?"

Nods all around.

"Good. Tonight we're jumping right into things. We know that the Foresworn control human assets in the Bronx. Borough officials, local cops, fire marshals, EMTs, staff at hospitals, gang bangers, professional criminals, business owners, local media, ConEd. They function like we do in that regard, only they play their cards close to the vest." The Brujah looked around the room. "We've been able to identify the assets they've used so far, however we know that one of them, named Raven, leads a Coterie dedicated to corruption and that she's been busy. They host parties for influential people and during the parties they condition them, they had control of an NYPD Captain and the right hand man of a City Councilor that way, and those two are the tip of the iceberg. These events are held deep in their territory, never in the same location, and are always well guarded."

He pointed at the eastern area of the Bronx, a territory covered by Foresworn strong points and safe houses.

"Learning the names of their mortal sleeper agents is vital, our string pullers can play political wack a mole with the best of them but sleepers popping out of the woodwork at the wrong time and throw any operation of ours into disarray. Given that getting access to these events is a no go we need the agents to reveal themselves." He paused. "And the best way to do that is to make the Foreswoen activate them. At best we'll know names that they don't suspect, at worst we burn an asset they've spent months developing. We have layers of individuals, both in this room and among our fellow Kindred, watching our known targets and waiting to see how high up the food chain their calls go when their masters call and which sleepers open their eyes."

"We just need to tickle the spider web."

Dimitri looked at his watch and raised an eyebrow as Blair walked in, assignment or no assignment he was still late.

Dimitri listened to Robert as he spoke "Sounds like a plan."

"So who is the bait?"

"We are." Robert glanced around the room. "Target needs to be tempting enough for them to swing for the fences and composed of Kindred who have enough legitimate scores to settle that they might overreach on a mission and make themselves a juicy target."

"Well that explains the crowd." The Baroness looked at Dmitri, at Paladin Lee, at Alisa Larionov, and at Marcus Johnson in turn.

"Then our rescue team gets to probe their defenses and test their own reaction times and reserves. Plus we let the Foresworn see what direction they come from, which is the way we want them looking."

"Dangerous." Alisa Larionov's voice still held her Russian accent.

"Very. It's a volunteer mission, anyone who doesn't want to go can sit here with Lee, David Sohn and Mister Blair to coordinate the operation and handle communications."

"Call me nuts but I'm in. If we can't eliminate them before their big Ritual then we need to do everything we can to make sure that their assault team on that night is four ghouls with metal baseball bats aided by two beat cops in a donut shop."

"If the Assassin shows up?"

"There will be extra eyes on you. For security's sake I can't reveal what those eyes are but they know about the capabilities the Assassin showed when it attacked and they're in place to specifically counter that particular son of a bitch should he show himself tonight." Robert smiled. "That's the trump card to counter their trump. All of us are the rest of the deck."

"So Deputy Bathory, Alisa Larionov, Paladin Lee, Marcus Johnson, and Myself."

Robert nodded. "Swap Marcus for Reverend Stewart. Rescue team is myself, Marcus Johnson, Viscount FitzAlan, and Jimmy Dee."

"Scouting trip, giving our Occultists an up close look at their strong points. We just slip up, maybe we see a target and tempt fate, and touch the spider's web."

"Okay." he paused for a moment "What are the Priority Targets?"

"Our priority target is deep within the eastern Bronx. There are softer targets but their top influence mover seems to be this Raven woman and she operates around Country Club, Pelham Bay and the south end of Baychester. She's got the most cards to reveal."

"She is Xiao, the original bloodline not the Californian Cult branch. Provided we grab her attention she will make every effort to stop us, probably with every minion, lackey and associate she has plus any ally she can sweet talk." The Reverend smiled. "The lineage as a reputation for being unable to keep their emotions in check and Gabriella and I foiled her plans once when her agents attempted to murder Stanley Dyer, I am willing to bet that she is yearning for a rematch."

"If we can pull them through a couple of precinct areas we should be able to spot who in the police command structure are more interested in chasing after us and NYPD jurisdiction rules." The Shadow crossed her arms. "Anything else that our behind the scenes team is specifically tracking?"

"NYPD, EMTs, FDNY, local politicians, City Council, the Bronx Chamber of Commerce, Political Organizations, the Girl Guides." Lee smiled at the end of the statement. "With the amount of back room power we're being lent at the moment we can pretty much watch everything and are aiming to do so. It's a dangerous mission and we've got one shot so we don't want to miss anything and screw up this opportunity."

"Got any suspected safe houses for Raven?"

"Four." Robert gestured at the map.

The Lasombra studied it for several seconds. "Anyone got a problem with going deep into the Heart of Darkness?"

She did not really wait for a reply before tapping her right index finger on the map.

"Tremont and Waterbury. We hit that suspected safe house, it's close to the Bruckner Expressway and given our size, and the presence of two Occultists if we're identified, they'll probably assume we're a scouting raid and will want to get the hell out of there as quickly as possible. I bet they'll block the expressway, revealing information we want in their method of doing so, and leaving us stranded in the between two of their larger groups so we can test how much they cooperate and how well they are able to follow us out."

"If they do us the favor of closing the expressway, first option is north and then west along Tremont, it runs the length of the Bronx and gives us good options to cut north or south around any roadblocks. Second option would be 95 North, takes us deeper into Foresworn territory but it is the type of move they probably won't see coming, plus we can get off and cut west at either Pelham or Gun Hill road or continue north and take the long way home. Worst case we swim the Westchester Creek and then hug the south edge of the Borough."
