Group Xi (ξ
Outside Alexander PalaceWhen:
Midnight, Bellum Letale, and all is quiet.
Then, 12:01, and a rush of blinding light overtakes all members of Group Xi, regardless of location. There is a whirl and a swirl of heavy-thick magic, and it feels like the full moon has come early.
But no. When the disorientation settles, you find you're ankle deep in snow, in the dark of night, outside the gates of Alexander Palace. You can see no one you you recognize in the thick crowd. There is Russian being spoken around you, which you can only understand if you are fluent in the language.
In the back of your mind, you can hear your tales. Present. But you are not transformed.
And you are almost
alone.[This is a party style post (post your location in the crowd in the subject of your thread start). Feel free to find others in the crowd, to go in search of other people, to hunker down and find clothes, etc. You can only be in one thread at a time, however.
All posts once the sun rises must be in other logs - this group post is only for night one/arrival activities. Morning/Day 2/Day 3 logs may be started by characters in the group once the sun rises at their discretion. You cannot write beyond Day 3.]
