Adam begins sniffing around, seeking scents and evidence. He asks the mother wolf to serve as his eyes, asking her to describe various things as he notices them. He again checks for Magic, and for hidden clues. Perhaps something the attacker left behind?

((OOC: Investigation x2, Garou Lore x3, Awareness, Occult x3, Spirit Lore x2, History: Western Door x2. Sense the Hidden. Sense Magic. Lupus senses. All to try to find a clearer picture of what happened here, why these wolf cub spirits were attacked by a BSD, and where the attacker might have gone with her captives.))

Who knows how the mind of a Garou works once it's been twisted by the Spiral? Such things are mysteries, and perhaps they should remain mysteries...for understanding them could be the first step on the spiral path.

You follow the trail a short distance through the ghostly trees, and then the wolf stops.

<< One can no longer scent the cubs. >>

Magic was employed here; Wyrm-tainted spirit magic. If you had to hazard a guess, you'd say that a Rite was performed here. Which one is uncertain. Whatever it was, it seems to have eliminated the trail of the spirit-cubs...one way or another.

Adam snarls in frustration.

<<"Are there any other Spirits here?">> He asks aloud, in the speech of spirits.

A shrill titter comes from somewhere above.

<< Spirits here, yes, yes! >> a harsh, shrill voice says, mockingly. << Careful what it asks for, should be, should be! >>

Adam glances up, and then apparently remembers he is blind.

《"Tell me who you are, spirit, that I might address you properly."》

<< Names have power, yes, yes! No tricksy Garou will fool Magrot into giving his name, no! >>

Harsh, raucous laughter follows, from a point far from where the voice originally spoke. Whatever it is, it seems like it's a flier.

The Galliard looks sidelong at the Wolf.

<<"Did you see it? I need to know what kind of bird it is.">> He whispers quietly. To the bird he adds, <<"I can see you are a wise one, oh mighty unnamed spirit. It is a shame that when I tell this story I will not be able to tell of your wisdom, for I will have no way to refer to you. I guess I could say that you were a disembodied flying voice, but other spirits would find that hard to believe. They'd want to know your brood. Oh well. I'm sure some wise and capable spirit will come along. One who will know where the Garou who performed a Rite here has gone.">>

He chuckles, and begins walking.

<<"That Spirit will be well-renowned. Trust me, we Galliards know these things.">>

<< Tell story? No, no, Magrot thinks you will tell no more stories. Magrot thinks you will not need to find what you seek. Magrot thinks that she will find you first. >>

Another harsh cackle. Clearly, the spirit is amused by its own wit, such as it is.

<< It is a black bird. One believes it is a crow, but even from here, it smells of sickness. >> the wolf says, in a low voice.

A strangled squawk is heard, and then a new voice--a female voice, from perhaps ten yards in front of you.

"Idiot bird."

The wolf whines. << She comes. >>

Then the female voice speaks again.

"A blind Garou and a wolf-spirit walk into a forest. Is this some kind of joke?"

The Galliard follows the sounds with his sightless eyes. If a wolf could laugh, he would be. He takes a careful sniff in her direction. ((You know it. Sense Magic. Persuasion. Static Social below. Illusion. Static Gnosis below.))

<<"It does seem like one, doesn't it? Listen,">>

Suddenly, the wolf's demeanor turns serious.

<<"You don't know me. I don't know you. We can both walk away here. I want the cubs back. If they're dead, you're dead. If they're alive, I'm willing to entertain the idea of you living too. I'm not hunting you. I know you smell of the Wyrm, but that doesn't mean you're a BSD. You could just be an active Warrior in need of a cleansing. It isn't a priority for me to find out.">>

The Galliard nods at the Wolf.

<<"I will have her children returned, or I will have the head of their killer. You decide. Now.">>

He looks back to the source of the voice, and suddenly his eyes have fire in them.

The voice is amused.

"The pups? Yes, I have them. I thought they would make useful talens. I suppose I could give them up. But I would want something in exchange, no-eyed child of three eyes."

A thoughtful pause.

"Of course, you could just try to take them from me...in which case I will depart. The choice is yours. Bargain in good faith, or we say our goodbyes."

It is Adam's turn to offer a thoughtful pause.

<<"So, first was the kidnapping and now comes the ransom demand? Very well. What is your proposed 'Bargain'?">> The disdain in his tone when he says Bargain is readily apparent.

The amusement is still in her voice, wry now.   "Ah, the wonders of perspective.  When WE consume the Gnosis of Englings, it's just and proper; when those with whom we don't see eye to eye do it, it's "kidnapping."

A thoughtful pause.

"Perhaps that's why the world's in such a sorry state. No matter.  What I want is a simple thing, easily done.  I want you to do what you do best.  Tell me a tale.   Teach me."

Her voice sharpens a bit.

"Specifically: I want to know about...a tunnel.  A dark tunnel, a long tunnel, with boats that travel through it.   Not natural, I think...but close by."

"Tell me about this tunnel, and you can have your friend's cubs back."

<<"You would hear of the Canal? I know much about it, and will happily teach you. I will require a show of faith, however. Release the pups. Let them return to their mother, and let them leave this place. You and I will remain, and I will teach you about the Erie Canal. I'll tell you about it's construction, it's effect on this area, and answer any questions you might have about this tunnel.">>

He makes the wolf approximation of a shrug.

<<"Worst case scenario, you can still kill this poor defenseless blind Garou and go bind them again. Best case scenario, we all get what we want.">>

"This tunnel is on the Erie Canal?"

There is a thump in the grass near your feet.

"One of the cubs. You can release it at your leisure. But the Canal is long. For each useful piece of information you give me about the tunnel, another. Give me the location, and you get them all at once."

<<"Very well. I know the place you seek. There are a series of Underground caves in Lockport. They are known to the men as Lockport Cave and Underground Boat Ride. They're made from a portion of the canal, and yes, they are man made. They are rumored to be haunted by the souls of the men who died working on them.">>

He feels around for the Talen with his paw, and when he finds it he breaks it with a bite.

<<"You have the location. Release the rest.">>

There is a louder thump in the grass at your feet.

When you bite the bone carving, it splinters, releasing a small wolf Engling.

"I deal fairly. You hold up your end of the bargain, I hold up mine."

A pause. Then, in fluent Seneca,

<< You might want to think about whether your "friends" in the Sept do the same, Brother. >>

Then silence.

Adam keeps his sightless eyes on the other Garou.

<<"Mother, break the items on the ground, and your children will be released. Take them and head back to that clearing I showed you before. I would share a few more words with this Garou.">>

<<"Do not leave yet, unknown Garou. I do not speak the language you just spoke, and would know what you said.">>

He takes a step closer to better be heard.

The voice comes again...but from further up.

Adam takes to the air to follow the voice as best he can. ((Spending a Gnosis.))

<<"Have you been dealt with unfairly by members of my Sept? Tell me the story.">>

A laugh.

"They haven't had the opportunity. I'm afraid the storytelling will have to wait for another time. Oh...there are some fairly large Banes not too far away, and I suspect your little bird friend has gone to spread the word of your presence. You may want to give some thought to leaving."
