This session involves three characters:
- Arianrhod Monica Trengrove (aka Aria), the succubus and Perfect Yandere of War who believes Psyche is Doing the Right Thing and is Lost Outside the Hierarchy
- Sophia Ecks, Voyeuristic Visionary and Virtual Apex Predator who lives on The Bleeding Edge
- Sarah Gow, a Napoleonic Werepanther from an Urbanized Tribe who's a Practiced Shapeshifter
|Only a part of the story|
|Her panther form is a bit bigger than that, actually.|
In the first jousting between Sophia and the hidden system, there is a hotly contested flash of data packets which results in the chaotic triggering of every alarm on the buildings' two systems. Fire, burglar and so on.
Sarah makes use of the screaming alarms to avoid being noticed when she drops down into the tall grass, like a pokemon chosen by a mildly psychotic player at a computer some distance away. She tries to say "I hate you" into her bluetooth, but unfortunately all Sophia hears is "Thank you." There is a close call when a guard hears something, but the natural stealthiness of a panther combined with Sarah's training and small size keep her hidden as he investigates and she positions herself to make a dash to a nearby bathroom.

The mindscape went well. Within the fiction, the appearance of a mindscape between mortals (and both the sidhe and succubus are mortals) represents a dangerous mistake by the psychic trying to get into the other person's mind. Usually they try to move too fast or too powerfully. The person being invaded has the natural advantage, being in their own mind. The usual goal is to force one side or another to drop the mindscape or to kick them out and that is what happened when Mei over stretched herself. Aria went for several high-difficulty visualizations to defend herself, trusting in her large Essence Stress Track to be able to handle the effort. Realistically, Mei came away annoyed but generally untouched save a near miss by the sniper visualization and Aria, untrained in telepathy, was pushed to her limits so badly that even the stuff she normally handles well (Manipulative type powers) caused her corruption to aggravate to the severe levels.
