Pairing up for dinner
Unrelated Incidents S01E02

Two weeks pass by.

Alba is intrigued by the events of the battle that scarred her living room. She works her contact (a local know-it-all named “Shave”) that points her in the right direction of someone who is known to have information regarding that incident. Due to a poor die roll that someone is revealed as Robinson thatcher. He is reluctant to help her because she is so condescending when talking to humans (Aspect).

Robinson has spent the last two weeks in a daze of reading and searching for any scrap of information about the creature that attacked Nieve in The Thatcher House. Eventually he managed to borrow a book belonging to the Shadow Shaman depicting some of the creatures of the Summer Court. In there he discovers the description of the Summer Stabber, a blood hound of a tracker used by members of the court to track down specific kinds of prey.

Alba reluctantly follow Robinson into Neutral Grounds Coffee House were they grudgingly exchange information. The news is filled with the recent victory of Mr. Johnson of the Thatcher, Johnson and Sow-Ohn law firm (an old friend of Lee). During that time both Lee and Nieve delve more and more into apathy. Nieve return to work and disregard the attack while Lee takes a long and luxurious bath in the Nile (“denial”).

Alba also tries to talk sense into Nieve despite Robs (the current manager and son of the owners of The Far Side roof bar where Nieve works) she fails.

Robinson appears at Lee’s house and collapse on her sofa. She helps him despite her better judgment (Compelling an Aspect). Johnny the rabbit warns Lee that Robinson need to be well dressed and so should she. She ignored some of the advice of the future divining rabbit but get a suit for Robinson. A letter arrives inviting her to a private dinner at The Hanging Gardens, a trendy Babylon style restaurant. She tries to excuse herself but to no avail.

A similar letter invites Nieve to that same dinner, although she had difficulty understanding the transaction of signing for your mail (Aspect) she eventually get it and dress appropriate for the event (a flowing silver dress fitting for a banquet).

Lee (followed by Robinson) and Nieve (followed by Alba) go to the restaurant. Alba and Robinson meet outside and have a loud conversation in front of Mathew (a teenager who works at The Dragons Lair comic book shop).

Lee and Nieve are seated at the private outer room and discuss their previous meeting while Lee is denying anything supernatural. Meanwhile Robinson and Alba attempt to enter the trendy restaurant but are stopped by the head waiter who asks them to remain silent so as to not disturb the shrimps.

Eventually Robinson and Alba are admitted (apparently they were on the guest list all along and will probably discover letters of invitations at their respective apartments when they’ll get back). Following a short delay a short Asian lawyer approaches the group and identifies himself as Sow-Ohn, a lawyer employed by an anonymous third party. Said third party would like to extend his regards to the group via a free meal and something else that is located at a certain address (he give them a card with an address and a business card with his contact information.

The lawyer leaves while Robinson orders “all the shrimps you have” and a fine whiskey. The order is delivered as “the Gilgamesh platter” a buffet design to feed 10-20 guests and some excellent whiskey. The group eats and drink while the huge amount of shrimps sway (apparently Lee can’t hold her liquor and fall asleep). When they return their attention to the card they find it’s gone. Alba look among the shrimps for the cards when the pile of cocked shrimps rear up, extend fishy tentacles and attacks!

The Summer Stabber Strikes! Creating New Doolin and It's inhabitants
Unrelated Incidents S01E01

Nieve and Alba are friends, being two outsiders from the Nevernever, both stuck among humans in the mortal realm.

Robinson and Lee have met before. They spent a while helping the people of Crock Town in a strange epidemic that Robinson was certain had a supernatural source and Lee helped from a medical perspective. They save a few children from certain death.

Alba has looked for a solution to the curse cast upon her. She tried to elicit the help of the Shadow Shaman, a voodoo practicing sorcerer from the edge of the jungle. The plan turn south and the Shadow Shaman summoned a huge shadowy bear to assault her.

Alba is indebted to Lee who wondered the jungle to collect plants and notice the bear approaching Alba. Lee used her anti bear kit and sedated the creature. Giving Alba enough time to escape.

On a break from her bartending shift Nieve leave The Far Side roof bar and being targeted by a magical monster. Luckily for her the monster was tracked by Robinson Thatcher who manages to avert the attack and because some harm to the creature by pulling her from under the creature while it’s behind crashed the concrete where she stood.

Robinson and Nieve both escape the ass-wounded creature. The creature stalks them as they make their way to the house of Alba, a friend of Nieve. Upon arrival Robinson try to think of a ceremony he heard of that repel supernatural attackers for that ceremony he need a special kind of blue flowers that he knows his friend grows.

Alba shape shit into her eagle form and flies to Lee house. She knocks on the door and demands her flowers (being a condescending character). Alba helps her (needing to help others) but demands to come as well, Alba tells her to come after day break. As Alba leaves Johnny warns Lee that if she won’t go over there now they will die. Alba packs her medical kit (with her anti bear’s kit) and head out.

Meanwhile Robinson prepares a blue paste and smears it over the doors to the apartment. The effectiveness of this is questioned as the creature barge in through the window of the sky high apartment. The creature (a Summer Stabber) has two large noses and one small eye. Nieve tries to stop it by throwing black pepper into the creature noses. He sneezes yellow goo all over the living room and charges Alba but the door opens and Lee enters and shoots it with a tranquilizer gun from her anti bear kit. That momentarily stuns the beast.

The group fights for their lives. Robinson grabs a morning start (since it is Alba’s apartment (Aspect)) with a cooperative effort they manage to dupe the creator to charge unto the balcony and push him of the edge of the sky kissing apartment (Aspect).

The creature take a long moment to crash, while in the background a nearby roof bar played Rahinyn new hit “Welcome to the electric jungle”.
