Liam, Annie, and Sister Mary Elizabeth get permission from Bishop Rice to investigate the Relics room. While Walking through the Halls they notice an number of signs pointing out the relics exhibit that opens in a couple of days. Liam Also notes that there are 3 other sponsors for the exhibit other than Monsanto (Ameren, BJC, and Boeing).
Upon arriving at the Relics room Annie assesses that it is a very secure location nothing the glass thickness, steel doors, cameras, and laser sensors. SME is draw to an “un-right” feeling from further down the hall. Liam cast a number of thaumaturgical spells to identify which item had magic residue on it. He also determined that this spell had been cast within the hour and that there was a hint of mortal magic the overwhelming spell was in fact a glamour.
The plaque read that it was the “Sepulcher Stone” believed to be the stone that sealed christ’s tomb. It was found between 20-50 B.C. and was later engraved in 490 A.D. and believed to safely delivery people to the next life.
After asking Bishop Rice to turn off the security system SME cut the top of the glass off the exibit. When she touched the sword of the cross the the item it dispelled the glamour revealing a wooden sphere with a metal band around in engraved with magical sigils. The item was activated and exploded out with water forming into a construct that attacked. It was defeated without many wounds to anyone and the sphere was taken by SME.
The Group Retrieved their cars and went to meet at the “clubhouse” on the grounds of Sisters of St. Joseph Carondelet where they were reminded again how weak the threshold around the Archdiocese was. Liam investigated the item to learn that it was a temporary holding device for a construct made by a mortal practitioner of some skill. It would have taken someone a long time or alot of skill to make this device. SME cut the item in half to no success…
They Recognized that a Mortal Practitioner, Fairy, and Demon were all involved in this nights murder and theft.
They decided to convene at the archdiocese after mass the next day at 8:30am.
