Actually, this is a good post and I have had those questions as well. Answer will be forthcoming soon!

The next thing we are adding to the list of things to work on, is Willpower. Until stated otherwise, willpower can not be spent for inconsequential rolls.
We will consider a spend in the event of a Bestial failure, but it will be at our discretion. We have already eliminated the Social willpower damage as it does not work in our game.
RE: Let me get this straight-
A mortal was sent. Not a Vampire who may know what to expect and has supernatural abilities at their disposal.
Mortals being used is a coward’s way. They only know we are coming because a mortal was used. I have heard about the investigating that has been going on. These Sabbat have been here less than a week, that is why there is no information to be had. But I have also seen it reported that it’s not because they are small and new but are in fact big and heavily entrenched. Yes, that was said. I mean, it couldn’t possibly be a small, weak group who we can easily handle, could it? naaaaa, couldn’t be that. But they killed one mortal and tagged a few buildings and suddenly they are Mafia-SonsofAnarchy sized and powerful.
But with each night we sit and “investigate plans of attack” they CAN become stronger and more deeply entrenched. Sabbat tend to mass embrace for sieges. Yes, they go out and kill a mass of humans and turn them into vampires and set them loose in order to take over a city. Each night we wait is a night closer to them doing that because it’s clear from the little that has been done against them means we are weak and ripe for sieging.
I am not military-minded, that is why I have a coterie of warriors and scouts, but even I can see sitting on our hands, clutching our pearls and “investigating” is useless without actually putting eyes on the prize- you know eyes that can be supernaturally enhanced, possibly in the bodies of vampires that can be supernaturally stealthily, and if engaged, can be supernaturally fast and strong and resilient.

Let me get this straight-
We have known there is Sabbat in the city. We know roundabouts where they are. We knew there were at least 2 and 2 probably ghouled dogs. But we have YET to scout and get confirmation from our own eyeballs on anything else.
We have a whole (pretty big) Coterie whose sole responsibility is to scout and fight. Yet, we have no scouting reports. We have several people in the city who can move stealthily and quietly, some in other Coteries that can be utilized.
In a city full of bleeding hearts and near-human Vampires, I am shocked that seeing 4 mortals rundown and mangled by two SUVs outside one of our Markets has not triggered your special snowflake fee-fees.
We have lost The Collective for the time being now, a building I myself had an interest in. But it is also a building that was the site of many vampiric events, gatherings, and meetings. Two additional mortals have been killed.
But NOW, only when two big, bad vampires get shot at and singed, do we have a “fuck this shit!” going on.
So, to all of you Humans-who-happen-to-drink-blood pussies, get to work. Get eyes on the Sabbat and engage if possible. If it doesn’t happen tonight, I myself will lead a group to do it. I can hear you all going passive aggressive now and saying I should do that and you will stand down, but it is not my job. We have a group that should have already moved and not spent a week “gathering information” - which apparently doesn’t include actually LOOKING WITH YOUR OWN EYES. I have provided training things, I have offered any help needed with equipment. Yet, our fighters and scouts have yet to scout in order to fight.
We have three coteries whose jobs are carefully curated and cultivated. It’s kind of telling that at the first sign of a threat, the fighters sit on their hands and flex influence, rather than move.
And you all want to move to take out the Tower. HA!

Plus News- Buildings targeted by fire overnight
Branton was the site of two overnight fires confirmed to be have been arson. Several people were injured and 2 were killed.
The first fire was at The Collective Art Gallery in Midtown. Two people were killed, and several bystanders were injured. The names of the dead were not released pending notification of their families. A worker at The Collective reported that he was in the lobby when bullets shattered the windows and projectiles were thrown through. Two people who were killed had their clothing set alight and the surviving worker stated, “I tried to help them but it was too late and I had to run.”
Structural damage is extensive and The Collective is currently closed pending investigation by the Fire Marshalls.
Another building was attacked by fire bombs in Seven Points. This building had just been foreclosed upon and was the site of a gym. Damage is extensive but no one was injured in this attack.
Investigations are pending and results will be released when completed.
