As much as I'm sure none of us really wants to relive what happened the other day, in the interest of figuring everything out as much as this building will make that possible, you're going to have to humor me. I'm sure it'll be of great interest to a lot of you, anyway, to know exactly what's happened, what you missed, and what your currently-hospitalized loved ones may have gone through.

What I know so far is that people have gone to Chicago, early 1929; Russia, 1917; and France, likely 1789. I know that people have gotten hurt, sometimes badly, because of this. If you could say where you went, what you saw, what you did because I've been doing some research and I'm seeing things that aren't right, so I'm curious as to what the hell you all did, and who you were with, and if they were hospitalized or not, I'll compile a list and send it out later if everyone's interested. If anybody has anything complied already, I'd like a look at it.

If you don't want other people to know, just send it to me privately and I'll be sure to credit you as 'anonymous'. I can keep secrets, unlike some people. And don't complain at me about probing too deep into anything and being a nosy bastard. It's pointless, this is helpful, and complaining isn't going to change anything.

If you have no idea what I'm talking about, disregard this. If you have no idea what I'm talking about and you're new to this building, nice to meet you. I suggest you move out as soon as possible.

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.

[There's a bit of silence before her voice begins. It's clearly tired, though she tries to hide her exhaustion with a wry tone.]

To all the people who are still awake - there's probably like two of you - let's play a game.

[She takes a long pause, trying to collect her thoughts.]

Let's hear what tonight has taught us all. If you learned anything, put it here. [She laughs, the sound tapering out into a whisper.] Make it good.

Voice, from P3

[The sound of furious banging against a heavy surface, followed by a series of snarls and words spoken in Romanian before he switches to English]

Who dares attempt to imprison Count Dracula? I have been tolerant of your inferior species for far too long - these walls cannot hold me forever, and when I am free, whoever is responsible for this will beg for death when I find them.

[The heavy sound of footsteps as he begins to pace back and forth] All of you will rue the day you crossed me, and this building will be mine, for you are merely mortal and I am superior; I will rule this pitiful place and destroy all who stand in my way.

[A pause] Mina, where are you? I can sense you, but these infernal walls will not yield.

I am sorry to be bothering you, but you are the only three women I am knowing in Bellum.

American customs are not very familiar to me. If I am giving my phone number to an American man, and he is giving his to me, he should call, net? Or if he doesn't for two days, should I be calling him? I am This is I am not understanding Americans sometim In Russia, it is not so complicated.

Thank you for your advices.

My most esteemed neighbor:

Do you know anything regarding the woman that tells fortunes?

I have said before, I cast stones for building. Sometimes, I see specific things and people. Perhaps you should be coming to my tea shop? I am thinking it would be better to talk there.

Since things get pretty dangerous around here on the full moon, it's probably a good idea to have some place the dangerous ones can go so everybody else isn't going to get killed. The catacombs seem like a good place for that.

The rest of the time, since the cops don't have a clue around here, setting up some regular people to deal with crime and medical stuff and repairs would be smart.

All in favor say 'aye' so I can go back to bed.

For friend, I read runestones about the magic that was happening the night not so long ago. I am very certain that it will be happening again with the full moon. I thought it would be good to be warning all people here to be careful then.

Jack, you still owe me a dinner.

Right now I'm wanting drinks more and drinking alone is sadder than I want to admit to. Willing to make that exchange?

Please. God, please... Look, I'll even say please to be polite.
