Are you alright? It looked like that knife went in fairly deep.

Subject: Checking In

Hey, Vlad

How are your injuries healing? I hope you're doing well.

Brian's pissed that the last full moon was a dud, but he's getting nowhere. So he's still oblivious.

I've got something I need to show you. I think you'll like it.

Public: Greetings to you all...

Greetings to you all.

My name is Bernadette Prideux and I've just moved here from France. I'm originally from the London area and I do a lot of my business there, but travel across Europe has been the norm for some time now, and I usually settle for rest in the French countryside. I've come to New York City in order to expand business opportunities and try some new things, and I have to say that even my first hour here provided such an opportunity...

This was initially going to be much more upbeat and pleasant, but several bottles of wine haven't made me forget the last few days and due to the evidence of a hideously old coat still very much present in my wardrobe, I am forced to concede that... whatever happened actually occurred. And from the number of traumatized looking individuals I saw in the lobby the other night, this wasn't just me.

Something went very wrong the other night. Can anyone explain?

That said, I look forward to meeting many of you in the future.

[ Locked to P1, P3 & P4 ]

As it seems we shall be some of the closer neighbors I was wondering if I might be able to persuade you to have dinner in my apartment in the coming weeks. Hopefully we can work out a convenient date for everyone, but if not I should love to have a chance to personally make all of your acquaintances.


Public -- 104

My name is Lily. I've just moved in myself. Strangely enough, I was also pulled away to Russia... and then to the hospital...

I have some family members in the building, but I've lost my list of contacts when I was syncing my phone last night. Something to do with the SIM card. Probably more to do with me. :( Here's hoping that they're able to read this. I'd rather not have to knock on every door in the building asking which room they're in, or seeing if that's their door. Which I will have to, if that's my last resort--let this be my courtesy apology in advance if so for bothering you. ;) And yes, I should have it all memorized by heart, you're right, but technology makes me rely on it to be my memory. Now it's my amnesia. :(

I'm originally from here, but moved to San Francisco for a long while to finish school. I've been back here for a few years performing in theatre, until mine closed down. That's what lead me to Bellum.

Let's see, some facts about me... that aren't too revealing.

Thanks for having me. :)


Public; sent from 602

Um, I was going to introduce myself before, but I didn't have the chance before being sent to Russia. I'm Sebastian Burke, I moved here very recently from Virginia. I'm a new nurse at Country General Hospital. I'm twenty-one, I have a bachelor's in nursing, and I now live in room #602. You can stop by if you need anything ever, if you want.

It's nice to meet you all.

Just got back from crazy shit. Spent a week in the French Revolution. Hopefully you weren't there, because the French fucking reek.

We need to talk. Immediately. Get back to me.

Subject: Thank You


Fuck Thank you for mentioning the cemetery to me at our meeting the other week. It wrecked my mojo. You were right - it is very peaceful. Too peaceful, I need some fucking noise. And if you stay there long enough, the moonlight hits just perfectly and I didn't see him it sets everything off just beautifully.

This fucking place is jinxed. I hope that we can meet again before too long. And you can tell me where that fucking blonde girl lives. This is her fault this is her fault this is her fault. My schedule is always open for a friend.

I thought I heard But no one has a child on this floor, and Please tell me I am not going to have to deal with a crying baby every damned night

I apologize if I am disturbing you, and I realize that this is likely none of my business, but [...] I thought I heard a crying child. Since I was not aware that you had a there was anyone in the building who had young children, I wanted to make sure [...] everything was alright.

Public; from 904

Jesus Tapdancing Christ! Where the hell have I been? Rhetorical question. I actually plead the fifth regarding my existence for the past however many hours I've been locked in a laboratory with my head up my ass piss drunk gone.

Since everyone is thrilled to see and hear from me once more, I have decided to host a classy get-together for all of my dear friends here. Where and when can be decided at a later date, but for now we can just pick a theme.


- Recapturing Lost Innocence. Remember those days of your dewy and glowing virginity? Neither do I. For this party, you'd arrive with someone who wasn't your current partner. If you don't have a partner then just grab someone off the street, it's fine.

- ABC Party. Stands for Anything But Clothes. I'm not talking nakedness because getting arrested is not on the agenda and, well, some of you really need to keep your clothes on for the sake of my retinas. But obviously creativity comes into play here.

- Rave Party. Blacklights, florescent colors, glowsticks. What's to hate about this?

- Wine and Cheese from Around the World. Nerds only.

That's just something to ponder. For those who don't know who I am, I'm Samuel but no one calls me that anymore so Sam is fine. It's shorter and rolls off the tongue easier. I don't do anything like tarot cards or palm readings or seances; I'm actually a scientist of sorts so I can appreciate mental disturbances. It will help me fit in really well around here. You may have also seen me around at various benefits and other charity events - I believe in giving back to the community, and I have a few causes I am strongly devoted to but I don't like to make a big deal out of it. Anyway, I'm sure I'll be seeing you all around at some point. Try not to burn the building down - those stairs can be tricky to navigate when your pants are on fire.

If I get you the money I got left (about a quarter million), can you invest it for me and rent me somethin that ain't here?

My name is Esme Grigore.

There is no need to explain to me the nature of this place - I know it well enough, and the changes in it have already been told to me by my sister in 1203. I have also been told that, on the full moon night several months ago, she was harmed.

I would like to say, just to be clear, that if anyone sees fit to do her harm again, on a full, waxing, waning, or new moon, they will have me to reckon with.

That aside.

Reading the tarot is my business, and you'll find my readings more accurate than your average new age street woman with a veil and a deck of new cards that she thinks make her qualified. If you would like to schedule a reading, you need only contact me.

I would like to settle here with a minimum of trouble. Leave me be, and I will do the same for you. you know who you are

[After catching up on the building dramatics via the forums]

It does not concern me, what anyone thinks they are or who they believe they turn into when moon mother is full and heavy in the sky. I have a spear and many knives, and I do not mind using them if anyone turns their anger on me. There is talk of powers also, yes? I can open all of your doors if I wish it. I recommend staying away from mine.

I much prefer bluntness to false, friendly introductions. I do not want to sleep with your women, and I do not want to steal your things. Your politics and dramas, they do not concern me. If I play my music too loudly, I recommend the purchase of ear plugs.

I'm left to wonder if things get better, in a place like this.


Did you settle in alright?


It seems I'm a little late to volunteer, but if you still need participants for your tribunal, I am fairly new and don't know any of the people that seem to be involved.


I still owe you a drink, I think. unless i'm not to be trusted


Public from 1003

Well, aren't these intriguing. I never knew the internet could provide such entertainment. I normally use my computer for business alone and even that's disturbing. What happened to the days where we valued face-to-face meetings? The warmth of a handshake, the honesty in eye-contact, the sound of someone's voice - don't these add up something that cannot be replicated by the internet?

Granted, you're all amusing. I've only paged through the last few posts or so. I've been a bit busy moving in, checking out the place and so on. I should be settled by the next business week - I did find a hardly trustworthy construction worker to help with the remodeling. Whoever was here last did a poor job of cleaning it when they left; there's mold everywhere.

Of course I'm sure you'd all rather hear about something other than my moving in process. My most sincere apologies to my neighbors though - if the noise is too bothersome, let me know when a better time to work on repairs would be. I'll have my man come by then instead.

Is there a way around this? It'll help in the long run, I suppose.

In case I forgot to mention it - I believe I didn't - I'm Xavier. I'd say it's a pleasure to meet you all but I technically haven't yet and I have a dislike of liars. Once we meet in person, I'm sure I can say it more satisfactorily. If you can find me, that is.
