Thanks to everyone who contributed to this month's Caern Convos. Next month's CC submissions are due *by* Tuesday, August 31st and are taken throughout the month. If enough submissions come in during the month to justify a special edition (sent mid-month), I'll try to, so submit soon and often!

If you notice something missing or grossly inaccurate in Caern Convos that you'd liked to be added in, please send +mail to Mercury (alias 'CC') on the game, and it'll be put in the 'addendum' for next month's edition.

Also, remember if there is a log of the event you submit, to include the URL in the +mail, so it can be included in the HTML version. Thanks!

|| JULY ||



Multiple visions have come to Soren, Sepdet, and even some non-Garou. Collin

  spreads word to the city; gossip filters out through the caern more slowly
  during the week since an ominous red star appeared in the sky visible only
  to non-humans (the same night Sepdet was found in a coma in the burial
  mounds). Various dreams have built a puzzling composite picture. A sudden
  quake or storm releases a huge apelike creature, ten-headed, wearing ten
  crowns, which engages in a climactic sky battle against a crane, a dragon,
  and a tiger. The storm seems to be part of the battle, releasing a rain of
  bones. The three totems (?) are losing ground. Dreamers sometimes try to
  come to the aid of the three but are fiercely engaged by a second enemy
  that takes the form of humanoid vultures. Other unidentified figures seem
  to be on the dreamer's side, including a strange gray-clothed man who may
  have been spotted by Collin in Harbor Park. The battle's ending is
  obscured by a searing, blinding explosion of sunlight. Sept Theurges
  debating the matter have yet to figure out what, if anything, is meant by
  this acid trip, apart from the fact that it appears the Sept has a new
  enemy on the horizon who is intentionally sending nightmares as a
  challenge or preliminary assault.

Around the waxing halfmoon, a scouting mission was mounted to explore the

  Umbra around the former Blue Sky logging site for any sign of Wyrm
  habitation. The party, consisting of Collin, Kristine, Duncan, and Megan,
  found a desolate area. When the group went to investigate further, they
  encoutered some menaching force only slightly reeking of Wyrm protecting
  the area, which took the form of duststorm which took on twisted, human
  faces. The group left at that point, having fulfilled their objective.

While out running off steam under the full moon, the new moon Child of Gaia

  cliath Dante Seeks-His-Own-Peace and galliard Wendigo cub Leonard
  Little-Bear were assaulted by a Wyrm-tainted cougar in the undeveloped
  forest north of WWNP. The poor beast was dispatched with little trouble,
  but its blood burned to the touch and destroyed plant life. The two fetched
  Joseph Soulcatcher who performed the Rite of Cleansing upon the area, which
  was promptly burned, ridding the woods of that taint. The origin of the
  cougar and its taint are unknown.


Blackwatch, Ouroborous, and Edge, along with Branwyn and Razor closed with the

  powerful nexus crawler living in the power plant. After Quiet unfurled some
  kind of powerful talen on the spirit, the rest of the Garou fought through
  some kind of viscous goo, and literally exploded into violence, fury and
  carnage as eleven rageful Garou unleashed the combined might of their
  attacks at once. Simply overwhelmed by the sheer force of the assault, the
  Nexus Crawler lingered on for a few seconds and then slowly ceased to be,
  the goo, the illusory Crawler, everything returning to normal, the way it
  used to be. When the dust settled, Jose "Jabs" Figueroa had sustained a
  mortal wound from one of the creatures' jaws. All sense of victory was
  tainted by the loss of the septmember, packmate and friend to many
  city-dwelling garou.


Over the next few days, no-one sees hide nor hair of Jimmy Wilson, in any

  capacity. Later, it simply appears that he's moved on, with little or no
  word to anyone.


Elan took over the Alphaship of Cavall after Jimmy's disappearance. At the last moot, Duane and Jonah announced that they were starting a new

  pack. Eventually it begins to be known that the pack is called 'Skulk'; it
  isn't known why.


Word gets around the Walkers have found themselves a new cub. Cindy, as she's

  called, was presented to the tribe by Bowen, and her training commenced
  almost immediately.

Duane, Collin, Signe, and Cindy were all involved in the cubnapping of a new

  as-yet-unnamed Uktena cub (Ricky). Duane was alerted by the kid's
  kinfetch, and he convinced Signe to help him corral the cub. They did
  so fairly easily, even though he shifted to crinos and tried to attack
  the cub Cindy, who happened to be nearby at the time. The cub ended up
  at the farmhouse, but is being restrained in the barn because he is, as
  Duane put it, "a crazy little crackhead spaz".


During the Stories portion of the Moot, Robert announced that challenges

  could now be accepted and executed again. The only current outstanding
  challenge was between Joseph and Quiet, for the rank of Adren.


Jose Jabs-with-the-Left was killed in the attack on the power plant, being

  chewed to death by the nexus crawler.

Bailey Night's Justice was also killed on the attack on the power plant,

  against the banes in the basement, but details are so far sketchy.


Master of the Howl: Steven Fool: Mountain's Peak Caller: Shadow-of-Blood Truthcatcher: Megan Wyrmfoe: Nightflash Announcements: Sepdet discussed her dreams. Megan announced that Clouded Sky is looking to renounce, and that a Rite of

  Renunciation will be held during the waning crescent moon to do this. Those
  wanting to discuss it may find Megan

Kristine announced the siting of a troll passing through the Grotto, and asked

  that anyone who sees it or notices his passing anywhere please find someone
  who knows about such things to pass word on.

Brian stood up at the end of the Cracking asking some rather pointed questions

  about what the other packs have been doing during the state of war in the
  city when it seemed only certain packs were regularly there for the
  pre-scheduled fights. He also questioned what the unpacked Garou were up to
  and why they aren't forming packs. There was some open discussion after
  that, including Duane and Collin each announcing the formation of new packs
  they were involved with, and Elan defending Cavall's absence at several of
  the fights as well as recruiting warrior-types for the pack.

Brian also announced that the state of war is over, but that people should

  continue to be careful as there are still nests of banes in the city

Brian got up again during the Stories portion and asked those who had fought

  in the many fights in the city since the explosion of the power plant to
  stand up and be recognized by the Sept.
