S03E04 - The French Connection

The presence of a bleed through in the Horizon Realm raises many questions, questions the gentlemen of the Henosian Club are happy to pawn off on those of a higher station. However, as they return to Witwick they are disturbed to hear that Jennifer has gone missing in France. The gentlemen are summarily dispatched to the sleepy French town of Nouvion-en-Ponthieu, also the factual location (but not filmed location) of the televison show ‘Allo, ’allo, a fact lost on anyone but Blakeney, to investigate Jennifer’s disappearance, and try to find answers about the Node.

S03E03 - The Argonatus

The Chantry sends Jennifer Lockhart to France to investigate a potential portal or node with connection to the Horizon Realm of Witwick (much to the dismay of the gentlemen of The Henosian Club), and charges the Henosian Club with traveling the extent of the Realm to discover its vastness. Crossing a large desert, they arrive at a greek temple, and encounter Jason and the Argonauts. Traveling with Jason, they arrive at the end of the Realm, where it is clearly bleeding through from somewhere else – the same place Jennifer was taken by the ape-men, who are also present here.

S03E02 - Journey to the Centre of Horizon

With the Horizon Realm that Witwick is connected to contiues to expand, the Henosian Club is dispatched on a mission to investigate. It turns out that beyond the fringes are not only small dwellings, but a large world, that have clearly been closed off as a result of the missing Nodes. After rescuing children from a fairytale story witch, the gentlemen come across a woman who explains she fell into a well in Nouvion-en-Ponthieu in modern-day France.

S02E06 - Pontypool changes everything

Joining forces with the shadowy Styx Security Company, the Henosian Club agrees to take on the cultists worshipping Erastus Faulkborne and attempting to kidnap Grimm in the small, Welsh town Pontypool. Yet, things are not as they seem. There is a large compound over an old mine, all fenced off and guarded. The gentlemen are dispatched to investigate in the small town, while the paramilitary group assume their various positions (as might be). Blakeney and Benny discover an entrance to the mines in an old boathouse, and call upon Ebeltoft to follow. They are soon directly underneath the compound. Grimm and Brigham come across a mysterious old house which quickly turns out to have belonged to Erastus Faulkborne. With Grimm compromised in what has clearly been Faulkborne’s former lair and the cultists aware of the Henosian Club’s presence, the cawl hath hiteth the fan, so to speak.

The ensuing aftermath is very rarely spoken about among the gentlemen.

Grimm’s subsequent absence is never mentioned.

S02e04 - Nýjum stöðum, nýja vini.

From the journal of Brage Borrson.

Ég hef komið bara til New York og hitti Kabbalah The Henosian Club. A ágætur hópur töframenn sem “loftþéttar” tegund, ef þú veist hvað ég meina. Þeir hafa sýnt með greiningarbúnaðinn frá The Technocracy og Cult Extacy tónlistarmaður farið aftur í skóla. Í heild hlutur er og óttast. Ragnarok er í nánd. Sá stormur eyðir er á leiðinni að vakna og The Henosian Club virðist vera einir geta til að stöðva þessa anda. Það virkar og hvort þeir hafa áætlun. Á sama tíma, einn verður að finna út hvað það er sem gerir gamla hnútar vakna og orku til sjóndeildarhringnum heimili þar Witwick skóla húsa. Þessi framboð orku hefur gert sjóndeildarhringinn heim óstöðug. Við verðum nú að finna út hvar þessi hnútar eru staðsett. Ég og aðrir töframaður að framkvæma athöfn þar sem við erum að þýða fjölda táknum skráð á kortinu með galdur sem breyti tíma og rúm. Ég ætla að taka þetta trúarlega eins fljótt og ég hef rannsakað mér þangað trúarlega sem virkar. Ég er ekki of langt frá að fá það. Þó að þetta á sér stað, á Brigham, Technocrat, komst að því að hann systir hefur horfið einhvers staðar í djúpum umber. Að komast þangað og finna hana, verðum við að ráða geimskip. Hvað mér finnst skrýtið er að ekkert af medsvorne spásagnamenn mínum hafa allir vandamál með þetta. Mér finnst það skrýtið að ekki einu sinni ég í vandræðum með þetta. Ég hlakka reyndar hlakka til að upplifa heiminn sem er til staðar á hinum megin bivfrost.

S02E03A - En Prise

Blakeney contemplates the scene unfolding before him.
From the rooftop he can see the entire plaza, with Starfall’s stage north, the river west, and the burgeoning crowds moving in from the south and east. He easily spots Grimm in the crowds, and can only surmise what is Brigham’s true location.

He sees the world for what it truly is: A cosmic game of chess. Today, he is fortunate enough to be one of the players. How? He is manipulating the empyrean Rube Goldberg-machine that is the Synchronicity Highway. He has put his pawns into motion, looked into the future and divined the spread of consequences. But not by Magick. No, not this time. He sees the game board through his Magickal awareness, but his play has been fundamentally mundane. As it must.

He has no way of knowing if he reached the Technocrat he temporarily held. Probably not. But the seed has been sown, and there will be consequences. He allows himself a fraction of a smile at the thought of having directly influenced the paths the Technocracy must now take, but not a long one. He knows full well that where chance is involved, the String will only be so thick. If it breaks, anything can happen.

He watches as Grimm is approached by Agent Parker. He can see Agent Winters and his faction moving into play. He sees their reasonable futures, their logical possibilities, their mathematical consequences.

He Sees. And like that, the pieces are in Check.

s02e03B - T3s5er4c7 Live
From the Electrostat Blogg by dV8

So when freshman electropunk prognoise necrojazzband T3s5er4c7 announces a grandeur magical demon summoning concert in the middle of the Hudson River, you start to wonder who this guy is. Is it a new Trent Reznor act? Fat Boy Slim on steroids? Aphex Twin/Ulver crossover? When seeing the stage you know there are some real money behind this.
Somewhere in the neighbourhood of 2 million people show up to find out what this is all about. There’s so far only been one gig with this band, the legendary rooftop gig somewhere in the doclands. With only one EP under their belt we’ve got little material to go on when it comes to pre gig research. Would the material be strong enough to carry a pr stunt like this?
When they, or he, opened with a new song named “Implementing the psychosphere” we knew that would not be the case. I’m not sure the PMRC will endorce this artist, as the occult theme of the visual effects is pretty obvious. At the middle of the gig tentacles started popping out from the ground in the middle of the audience. If you touched them, your hand would turn black. Pretty neat trick. I’ve read somwhere that the tentacles were made from rather complex robotics and ferrofluid stained with black ink. Just after that, an enourmous rendition of the great Cthulhu started rising from the river. Elder signs glowing in mid air, pyrotechnics going off, lasers, police units emerging from everywhere. Wonder who the cot to produce and direct this show. During the song “A cure for Weldschmerz” T3s5er4c7 removes his signature 4d cube mask, and it is Ebeltoft Starfall!!!?!?!! The last year he’s gone completely of the rails. Selproclaimed magician/private investigator/drug addled singer. How can he make music this brilliant? It boggles the mind. As the last song “Perpetual movement in the fourth dimension” starts, Cthulhu starts to submerge once again, and you could hear some of the audience chant “Cthulhu fthagn!”
All in all, the show was great, the sound could be better and the music sublime.
A great evening altogether. Can’t wait for the next album, or the next gig.
