Warehouse fire still going one week later. Not spreading. Lots of psychological disorders nearby. We all receive a formal invitation to the Unessle Accord talks. We can all bring one weapon. A glamour is put up to prevent suspicion from everyone entering. Bran gets there first, checks in, escorted down. Alice arrives, then Kyoko, Zoe, Lance and John arrive together. In the entrance area, then let into a banquet room. Buffet along one side, speaking podium up front. A huge red headed and bearded man sits at the head of the table, Thatius Tordin, petroleum lord. Blonde women, ripped, armored with ceremonial spears around. Thatius starts the meeting, tells us to get all the chit-chat out of the way first before the talks start. The library has a weak threshold. Maria Lopez introduces herself to Zoe. Then Samantha Hart shows herself to Zoe and starts inciting her. Tells Zoe about her husband, thought missing. After being unsuccessful, they leave. Jack Frost Burton the Winter Knight talks to Alice. Talks about how they were appointed as knights, Jack’s history. He’s tried to get into the White Council, likes guns. Bran asks Jack about who invited him. He agrees to help him if he gets a date with Alice. They all agree. John talks to Maria Lopez a little, she is surprised to see him here. Kyoko gets swarmed by pixies that think she’s the “Raven girl.” Lance and John talk to Privo. Donal Vateral interrupts then and introduces himself. They start to talk about John’s gambling problem. He teaches John a lesson about gambling and life. Everything carries a risk, stack the odds in your favor. It goes over John’s head. Zoe tries to talk to Privo’s submissive woman unsuccessfully. The meeting is called to start. The fey courts want to introduce the two minor courts, Autumn and Spring. They will maintain the military power. Protect “The Throne” in same sequence as the Summer and Winter courts. All the remaining free fey will go to the new courts. As the gathering continues a strange inky shadow is overtaking the back of the room. The assembled start screaming and complete darkness overtakes everything. A fight with some Winter Court monsters begins. After the fighting. Maria Lopez is found mortally wounded and gives Zoe a locked, locket before dying. The man Kyoko rescued during the fight is a Warden but is found shot dead after the battle. A strange Jade Court operative is found but commits suicide before questioning.

Kyoko hands her sword over to Zoe and scampers off to talk to nearby ravens. They tell her about 3 ghouls and 6 humans inside. We have only 30 minutes till they move the shipment. A scuffle breaks out inside. A Summer Court Knight, Alice, shows up and opens the door of the storefront. As she opens the dead human falls out. The shipment was moved up to 5 minutes. We engage in a fight. We head back to Catherine’s house in the black vans and talk to her. Alice has found a blood bank paper in the warehouse. It mentions that Lord Raith has donated lots of blood. Maria Lopez thanks him. Catherine thanks us for the work. Unfortunate that we didn’t get more samples to study.
