The group learns that Carpenter is not only a prominent Lodge Master, senior Ripper, and personal friend of Von Helping… they learn that he is also the leader of a rag tag group of Slayers out of the US that is trying to revitalize an ancient order called the Watchers that presided over a powerful supernatural warrior called the “chosen one” or" the Slayer"
They also learned that the other members of this group, including Willow and Zander, where working with a half blood vampire codenamed “B” against Ripper policy.

When the group told Carpenter about what had happened and the book, he took steps to retrieve it and then sent them on an errand to recon an abandoned monastery in the countryside of Paris.

There, they met “B” short for Blade, and fought through vampires and demons into the lower levels of the ministry.

The group arrive back at the lodge with an unconscious professor and necromancer. They are also accompanied by the professor’s assistant, Indiana Jones who has given them a mysterious package. He stays that the package was delivered by accident to the museum although it was supposed to be shipped to an address in the lower east side of Paris. The package contains an old leather bound book titled.." the Watchers Chronicle" and also has an envelope and note attached. The note was a private message from someone named Zander to someone named Willow. It alluded to the fact that Zander had found the book the letter was attached to after years of searching, and that he was on the run from “the Gangrils”
It also mentioned someone named “B” and Carpenter.

A few of the group remained in the stockroom to guard the unconscious and bound necromancer, the injured professor and Indiana and the book. The rest went into the basement to find the lights out and dead bodies everywhere. A fight commenced with a giant weretiger. While the main group was struggling wirth the werebeast, the Ripper Gaston kept watch in the stockroom but while watching the front door, failed to notice that the necromancer was conscious and had freed himself. The two began to fight, and the stockroom was set ablaze. The fight spilled into the staircase that lead into the basement where the werebeast was now at. Knowing that the copers where at the door of the LODGE, Gaston managed to seal the hidden door to the basement. After some time and with great injury, the werebeast was defeated and the necromancer ingested poison, knowing his time was up.

The group, badly wounded, was forced to dispose of the bodies in the river, all except the body of the weretiger ( after ripping some samples from it) and Brigham where stored in the basement.

After the battle, the group learned that Gaston and Indiana were taken by the copers for questioning among with the professor and the book.

On the morning of April 10, the group is given their first assignment by Brigham. They are told that a prominent Professor and his assistant are the targets for membership by the Rippers. The two would be at the Marvels Museum in downtown Paris that evening at the opening of a new display on Dinosaurs and that it was the groups job to recruit them.

That evening everything was going to plan, when a disturbance could be heard in the national cemetery across the street from the museum. There, a Cabal Sorcerer attempted to cast a powerful spell that rebounded on him. The night sky turned red and an Erie mist filled the steers. In the museum, dead exhibits suddenly came to life, including the insect exhibit outside the office that the Rippers where in. The Professor was injured sand the group had to fight their way through the swarm back into the main exhibit to find a full size T-Rex skeleton fully animated and attacking museum patrons.

The Rippers decide to investigate the information on the note and go to the London Docks. There they find a cargo ship and are attacked by zombies. Following the battle, they are approached by Ripper leadership and invited to join a new Ripper Lodge in Paris. The group accepts but before they depart they check some of the warehouses for more information.

A meeting took place at 35 Nolen at a Eden Hall for new and prospective Rippers. After a grand meal and much needed networking, a few stepped outside for a smoke or to take in the night air. A disturbance caught their attention.

When jogging down the fog filled London street, the group saw an old women and man accosted by a large cloaked individual. The old women sputtered some gibberish and the assailant suddenly shifted into a Monstrous misshapen fellow. Hey knocked the old women to the ground and fled the scene. The other man being attacked took pursuit followed by a few Rippers. When the Rippers caught up a few blocks later, they saw the creature duck down an ally leaving behind the poor fellow that was chasing him laying belly down in the street with his head twisted so that he was staring at the night sky with dead eyes.

The Rippers gave chase and cornered the man in the alley. A fight insured precipitated by some gunshot and explosions. The Rippers approached the incapacitated creature to witness it slowly morph into a man. The familiar whistle of copers could be heard closing so the Rippers quickly searched the chap, finding a slip of paper in his front pocket then fled the scene.

Back at the hall, the Rippers find their table mates carrying the unconscious old women inside and take the chance to preview the note they retrieved from the creature…
It reads…" Omega arrives tomorrow. I am assured the biosphere will be finished on time. All is proceeding to plan." And is signed…J.

Welcome to your campaign!
A blog for your campaign

Wondering how to get started? Here are a few tips:

1. Invite your players

Invite them with either their email address or their Obsidian Portal username.

2. Edit your home page

Make a few changes to the home page and give people an idea of what your campaign is about. That will let people know you’re serious and not just playing with the system.

3. Choose a theme

If you want to set a specific mood for your campaign, we have several backgrounds to choose from. Accentuate it by creating a top banner image.

4. Create some NPCs

Characters form the core of every campaign, so take a few minutes to list out the major NPCs in your campaign.

A quick tip: The “+” icon in the top right of every section is how to add a new item, whether it’s a new character or adventure log post, or anything else.

5. Write your first Adventure Log post

The adventure log is where you list the sessions and adventures your party has been on, but for now, we suggest doing a very light “story so far” post. Just give a brief overview of what the party has done up to this point. After each future session, create a new post detailing that night’s adventures.

One final tip: Don’t stress about making your Obsidian Portal campaign look perfect. Instead, just make it work for you and your group. If everyone is having fun, then you’re using Obsidian Portal exactly as it was designed, even if your adventure log isn’t always up to date or your characters don’t all have portrait pictures.

That’s it! The rest is up to your and your players.
