You are Alexei Solokov, scion and heir of the Sokolov crime family. It is Wednesday, October 22nd, 2017, and the Family is in a dark age. The assassination of your father and the severance of the Family's ties to the forces of Hell and the Witch Covens have left the once Great House in a downward spiral. Only the monstrous servants remain allied with the Sokolovs.Your bank reserves are at 165,070,450 USD.Your weekly income is 70,450 USD per week.Your forces are: >250 Werewolves, scattered across the globe; 92 at the Manor, 20 in Beijing, 20 in Louisiana, 30 in New York, 30 in London, 50 in Afghanistan and 8 with you here in Moscow>18 Jaegers (S) at Sokolov Manor and 2 here with you in Moscow>2 Cyclopes (S), here at Sokolov Manor>5 Minotaurs (S), here at Sokolov>10 Centaurs (S), at Sokolov>1 Dragon (S) (Vern, a Red adolescent) here at Sokolov>2 Pegasi at Sokolov>8 Nightshifters, at Sokolov>25 Salamanders, at Sokolov You are currently in the lobby of the Sokolov “safe” house in Moscow, running for your life from an Abomination which just shrugged off a round of buckshot at five feet…+++You drop the gun, turning and sprinting for the exit. The Abomination roars in fury behind you, and you hear plaster shatter as the thing wheels to pursue you. You waste no time looking over your shoulder to check on Caroline - you just go. You slam out of a side door - the fire door, no time to waste on the automatic - and into the freezing Moscow night. Snow whips around you, and your feet crunch in the snow. You’re too terrified to be glad that you put on your coat. >Cont. +++Welcome back: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ySXsFk3v-_EDiscord: https://discord.gg/4Xy8Cg
Sorry I'm late, everyone. Let's do this!
A terrifying roar from behind you, together with an insane laugh, assures you Caroline has survived. Another laugh, deeper, meets hers, and together, the Jaegers scream:"WIR JAEGEN!"Even though the Abomination is surely busy now (with two Jaegers on it, what wouldn't be) you keep running. The Kremlin. You need to get to -You freeze. The crosswalk is deathly silent, but something...There. From the shadows between two of the buildings, five Stalkers emerge. Their breath, light and silent, makes small puffs of fog in the stark lamplight. You are boxed in. The only path left open is the one back to the safehouse, which is a warzone right now.You think. What are your options? You can't go back to the safehouse, you can't get by the Stalkers, you can't outrun them...>1d20 + 3

Rolled 6 + 6 (1d20 + 6)>>2039995OuchYour mind goes blank. You can't think. You can't reason. At least ten Stalkers are staring you down, and one has blood dripping from its jaws. You take a step back in fear, then another, then, in panic, you turn and run. That was a mistake. The Stalkers, enthused by the chase, give a terrible scream. Together, they leap forward, closing the gap between you faster than your eye can track. The leader pounces on you, dragging you to the ground. Your chin cracks against the packed in snow, and you're rolled over so the Stalker can rip out your throat...>cont.Sorry for my absence, I was drafted for housework
>>204121712The Stalker's jaw opens wide, and the stench of carrion hits you with its breath. Suddenly, its ears perk up, and you see a dim realization in its eyes -Something massive side-ons the Stalker, and you hear the Stalker scream before something crunches and it's cut off. You look over at the rest of the Stalker pack, which is retreating from...A huge, red-and-white furred wolf, which, as you watch, spits out the bloody remains of the Stalker Alpha. It howls, and four more wolves appear out of the shadows. >Get up and run, try to get to the Kremlin>Take some shots at the Stalkers>Play dead>Other (write-in)

Rolled 10 (1d20)>>2041790
>>2041793>19Invigorated by the appearance of your wolves, you rise to your feet. A bright pain from where the Stalker grabbed you on your shoulder only floods more adrenaline into your system. You snap your fingers three times fast - a signal to Bas. However, the great wolf whines in a pleading manner. He doesn't want to go. You've passed the roll - if you want to run, you'll succeed, no matter whether you bring Bas or not. He wants to stay, and you might lose some wolves if he comes. However, who knows what lurks in the frigid Moscow night...>Let him stay and fight>Override his decision
>>2042468>Write inKnow what, fuck this, if he wants to stay we're staying and fighting too.
>>2042481No.We don't have a gun compounded with the fact that we're a skinny nerd with no close combat training. And oh yeah, one of those stalkers would've ended the damn quest 15 seconds ago if it weren't for Bas.>Let him stay and fightHe can if he wants, but he at least needs to know where we're going so he can track us after he finishes these fools.
>>2042499You actually do have your handgun.
>>2042506Oh. We still need to haul a metric fuckton of ass if we want to make it through tonight though. Just GTFO
>>2042499We may be a skinny nerd with no close combat training but we're at least somewhat armed and have backup. If we take off alone there's no way we're gonna make it to the Kremlin without running into some horrid thing that's going to eat our spine disc by disc from the bottom up while we're still fucking alive.
>>2042481This. If we get caught out on the streets, there's no backup.
Looks like stay and fight. Are you sure? This discards your successful attempt to run!Note: This may seem like railroading, but you are throwing away a highly successful roll here. I want to make absolutely sure that this is the will of ANON (praise be).
>>2042605Yes or no to this post, one vote per person.
>>2042609>>2042642Your resolve steels. You are the Lord Sokolov. You will stand and fight with your men! You draw your heavy pistol, stepping backward behind the lines of your wolves. Bas growls at you, but turns back to the Stalkers. Faced with the wolves, the Stalkers seem to be reconsidering their options. They cast their heads around, taking a few steps backward...>Fire a shot at one, see if that scares them away>Leave the situation alone, they might retreat on their own>Order the wolves forward and shoot>Other (write-in)
>>2042682>>Leave the situation alone, they might retreat on their ownBe prepared to react on a moment`s notice
>>2042682>Leave the situation alone, they might retreat on their ownWe'd likely just reveal how poor a shot we are if we took a shot, and the third option is needlessly escalating.
>>2042682>Order the wolves forward and shoot
>>2042692>>2042706You give a long, slow whistle, telling the wolves to heel. Hackles raised, the wolves stop where they are, still staring down the Stalkers. The Stalkers seem nervous...
Rolled 6 - 3 (1d20 - 3)>>2043635Forgot my fucking roll
>>2043638The Stalkers chitter at each other. A few scream at your forces, but they back up...And turn and flee. The wolves shift back into their human forms, and one - Roger, Ram's medic - jogs over to you. Apologetically, he inspects your shoulder. You let him, but you hiss at the pain. "That looks fine for now, not too much blood loss. I'd advise getting that disinfected and bandaged as soon as possible. I can't do much here, I'm no witch."You nod, grimacing at the stinging pain. Bas comes over to you, revolver out, eyes wary. "Sir, Ram is needed elsewhere, but I can come with you to the Kremlin. We can wait this out until it blows over, and get out of here in the morning under Russian escort.">Good plan, let's go>Good plan, but I want Ram with me>Fuck that, I'm fighting with you>Other (write-in)
>>2043801>Good plan, let's go
>>2043801Forgot another option:>Good plan, but you stay with Ram. I can make it to the Kremlin on my own.
>>2043801>Good plan, let's goAny way to send our guys any reinforcements?
