"Well if not beating Lee at chess I would probably be on some crazy mission across the river seeking more intel about the Foresworn."

"Chess? When you are free and not busy playing Lee, let us play a game, yes?" Chess used to be so much fun, but he had not played in years. "Ah yes, I was told the Brood is rather active around here. Are there many conflicts?"

"Stay out of the Bronx. Also give the house here a call every night to check in so we know that you haven't been captured. It's war that is heating up."

Lee nodded. "Sure, we can play chess sometime."

"It is that serious? Or course I will adhere to the necessary regulations. I was not aware the situation was that dire. If you need a helping hand, please do tell me."

He smiled at Lee and nodded when saying "I would like that very much."

"They control most of the Bronx. Took it in a surprise assault during the East Coast Blackout of August '03 and the Domain was hurt too bad to retake it. They wanted the whole City but the Domain held and the sides entered a kind of Phoney War which lasted until late 2011. The Foresworn, that is their official name for themselves, got frisky and began subtle operations aimed at destabilizing the Domain. Those were foiled but we decided that it was time to dig them out."

Robert waited for Lee to make her next move before continuing as he pondered the chessboard. "Each side is nearing their respective end games and the war is getting hotter, hence the warning. Generally Manhattan and Brooklyn are safe, Staten Island is safe but has a Regent who dislikes a lot of company, Queens close to Manhattan is relatively safe and the rest is the hinterlands. Barrens would be out in Nassau county."

That sounded serious indeed. And most likely proved a hindrance in everyday's work. Something behind his eyes started working. Problems, variables, possibly contributions to the War effort.
"What weapons are utilized by us? What does the enemy use? Is the conflict lead openly? What would the largest acts of violance be that could be hidden from kine eyes?"

Robert held a hand out. "It's under control. What skill set do you possess that can assist with direct combat, indirect combat or keeping the Masquerade?"

"Forgive my eagerness. I would just like to be of help in times like these. I have no noteworthy combat skills. However, I can easily produce weapons-grade material that may prove rather effective. Napalm, for example, is not as hard to create as one might imagine. Which is why I was curious about how openly fought the warfare is: Sticky flames are not exactly covert. I could also provide acids that eat through glass, or with some patience, walls. While not as useful for an all-out attack as handgrenades, that may prove useful for infiltration, as it would be silent. Alternatively, superglue to prepare an ambush site. Can be used to stop cars and leave the enemy as sitting Ducks in the open." He carefully only listed things that could not be easily bought.
He also had an idea regarding application of his research in a different way, but kept that to himself for now. A spontaneous, unchecked possibility is not exactly the kind of thing he likes to present to others. Jeremy decided to invest some of his future research exploring the following question: "Can I create a Catalyst that will, for a long time, reduce a Kindred's ability to contain Vitae in his Body?"
The effect after subsequent injection would be the opposite of the first Coils of Blood. He would need to do some reading. Hopefully, the experimental Phase could Start soon.
"And I am rather acceptable at sneaking, so if that might be of use, please let me know." he added.

"Alright." Robert nodded and made his move on the chessboard.

"So is there anything else you want to see or need to know?" The question came from Lee.

"Oh, no, I do not think so. Except that I wanted to Thank you, again, for welcoming me." He extended his arms in an appreciative gesture.
"Well, there is one more thing, but I do not think you need to bother Interrupting your game for that. If it is alright with you, I will withdraw into the library now. The books and me need to get to know each other" he added with a cheeky smile.

Jeremy politely excused himself from their company and entered the Occult Library upstairs, where he spent the next few hours before he had to return to his haven reading, getting known to the cataloguing system and taking special note of a few books here and there.

Garret sighed and looked over his glasses at the sign. Interesting.

He raises his hand, swipes it through his hair and knocks on the phone.
