MAY 21 – Fixer bids Natalya and her team farewell as they leave for the north. Susie reports she has hacked into Cyber Solutions system and caused confusion in their shipping and such, costing them tons of money. She also reports she has found some hints about some big project named “Terminus” up there, but she will require more time to check it out. Fixer tells her to get on it.
A couple of days later she finds info about it, noting that is the code name for a place where Werewolves are indoctrinated into the Wyrms embrace while cybernetics are added to them, creating a legion of cyber-wolves. Natalya reports beck in and tells them she and her group are going radio silent while they do their job and will contact them again later.
A day or so later, Susie claims she has been “wiped out” of the system and her support for Natalya’s team has ended. Almost at the same time Fixer receives a visit from Kyleah who attempts to warn him there is a sudden influx of spirits from up north and it has attracted the wrong kind of attention. Fixer goes off on her and tells her he doesn’t care, causing her to be terrified and retreat without any further words. Fixer calls James and makes a report over the last weeks worth of progress, and how he feels it is unfolding.
Gerald wields his political prowess and attempts to activate some legislation or the like in and among the Canadian province. For reasons unknown to him, he fails in this endevour and come up with nothing to show for it but effort.
The full moon arrives and James decides to dedicate the Fanum while also holding a moot. He contacts Ingrid and asks her to come to their Moot as well, so she activates the Moon Bridge and steps thru. He also contacts Ingyana, Lucian and Tyrus and asks them to show as well. Tyrus begs off, but the other two show up. After the Moot starts, James makes Fixer the Seneschal and Po the Master of Rites. Then he forms the Knights of Jupiter by selecting one of each Auspice from the different packs, plus Ingrid, to form a “board of trustees” of sorts to work with Fixer and James in managing the Caern. He also adds Ingyana and Lucian, granting them temp honor as well as a position in the Knights. Ingrid and Hector get into a squabble. Fixer assigns Pariah, Shag Gut, Logan and Izzy to go and check out the Carnival south of Gary. Then he also asks Nanna and Anna to take Logan and Izzy, when they get back, and go looking for cubs
Then all things said and done, they dedicate the Fanum to Jupiter and the Caern benefits from it.

Time silently passes by as spring passes and summer approaches. Saint comes up and tells Fixer that he hasn’t heard anything from Pariah in about a week. Fixer pitches a fit, and gathers Kurlos, Saint, Midnight and Pauley and has them go check on the Carnival. They give hourly reports back to Fixer, increasingly odd until they encounter a Nosferatu freak. (although they don’t know that’s what it is.) Then they begin reporting back all crazy like, talking about the cotton candy they have found and other goofy stuff. Fixer orders then to return home, and bring some of that cotton candy with them. They do so, but they are wacky, an Fixer discovers the cotton candy is tainted. Later, they seem to have shaped up and are ok, but Fixer still wants to “cleanse” them. Come the dawn, he tries but only Izzy is healed – Pariah, Shag Gut and Logan are still tainted. Then Fixer destroys the cotton candy, unsettled by a low hissing moan coming from each. Fixer talks to Izzy and gets a detailed report abut what all happened to them. When night comes he takes Pariah outside and tries the Rite of Cleansing on him. The only outcome is the “taint” tries to “jump” onto Fixer, but he manages to avoid its clutches. Deciding to find out as much as he can about the Carnival, he delves into the Fanum’s Occult Library and works hard, luckily discovering several rare bits of info. The details of what he finds seems to indicate the Carnival is called the Midnight Circus, and contains problematic elements from the Kindred, Werewolves, Mages, Changelings and to a lesser degree Wraiths. He reports to James, who in turn summons Jupiter and asks him questions. They learn more info on this new threat to the area.
