Detroit, Dresden Style

So ... who brought the hooker?

Events

- As Chuck waited patiently to spring his trap on the man who had coming for them earlier at Father Adrian, Sister Mary alerted him to a suspicious looking vehicle across the street. It became more suspicious as it was the same type of high-goon-capacity, black SUV that had arrived at the abandoned mansion the night before. While wondering what to do, Sister Mary suggested he go out the side door into the area where he could make his escape unseen. Ah Nuns, so helpful. What crap! Chuck learned as the door was slammed shut on him and he saw the alley was a dead end. The alerted gang of thugs blocked the other end with the SUV and piled out to capture (or kill, gulp) Chuck.

- Meanwhile, Grimes and Dondarion were rolling back with their newly learned info that was painfully gained from Bobbie (wizard-extraordinare yo). Would they get there in time?

- Seeing he was heavily outnumbered Chuck didn’t fight back as he was held fast by one large man and then worked over a bit and questioned by the cultist. However, Chuck’s incredible presence and coolness under pressure came through and he managed to give them pause with an intimidating bluff. Two of the goons even started to panic and wanted to leave fearing repercussion. However, the cultist was winning the debate and it appeared he might eventually succeeded in getting people back on track and taking Chuck in (after beating him up some more). As the one, on-side goon restrained Chuck and began to pull him into the SUV, Chuck slipped out the desert Eagle and fired a surprised shot to take out the goon. All hell broke lose as a livid Sister Mary bursting through the door exclaiming, “Why the fuck can’t you idiots kill this guy” and began to sling dark magic.

- But all heaven was about to arrive as Grimes and Dondarion raced to the alley after hearing the shot. After some proclamations on top of the SUV, Dondarion charged the nun and took her out with a garbage can (not quite Captain America, but he tries). Grimes slang’ed a spell of his own then downgraded to fists for a few good shots. Soon two goons had fled and one goon and Sister Mary were subdued.

- The new time-honored tradition of interrogating a villain/henchmen/random-unfortunate every session continued as they worked over the cultist and goon in their … unique style. They were not forthcoming, but an unlabelled phone number was found, that when looked up pointed to Martin Ford — one of the lower ranking but still rich and powerful Ford clan. The White Council wizards popped-in and teleported away with the dark magic user for his (likely quick) trial. The goon, Frankie, was released (or so he thought) after Chuck ensured his silence.

- What do you do after a lively interrogation? Why an exorcism of course. Being one of his favourite activities to pass the time, Dondarion has the act done pat and within 2 hrs, Sister Mary was unconscious and hopefully bearing a buffed and waxed soul.

- Not knowing which of his several residences that Martin Ford was at, the 3 decide to call on Frankie (since they’re chums now) and, it turns out, his mother at the goon’s home. With some urging, Frankie decided to come out and play and drove the group to where he was supposed to deliver Chuck — the exclusive, well-guarded Bayside condominium complex (secretly owned by the Ford clan). They lied their way past the speaker/camera at the guard gate by claiming to have a the call-girl that Mr. Martin requested.

- Now they just need to find said call-girl … in the 50 meters between the driveway and the front-desk guarding the elevators.
