Remembering some information from Antwon’s laptop diary, Ken suggests that the answers to the problem may lie in the Shadow. He suggests that they seek out the Serpent’s Creed’s totem, Waits-in-Grass.
The group crosses over to the spirit realm. They get their first glimpse of the Wound that lies to the South of their territory. It appears to be a dark, roiling storm sparking with multi-colored lightning. They traveled West, following the directions described in the laptop.
On the way to the location, they battled storm spirits in the shape of ravens. They also met a owl spirit by the name of Fate-Like-Razor. The rest of the pack were ready to attack, but Ken spoke to the curious spirit and they left on good terms. This was an attempt by the Storyteller to get the pack interested in getting a totem, alas they didn’t take the bait on the owl
The group finally makes it to the caves where the serpent is hiding. The serpent is antagonistic until the pack realizes that the spirit has given birth to a brood of serpent spirits, that it is protecting its young. Once the serpent learns that the werewolves do not wish for it to become a totem spirit, it is willing to talk to them. It tells them of Eddie’s theft of the gem which fell from the sky, of his despair over the loss of his pack, of his research into the nether worlds of death. Waits-in-Grass speaks of how Eddie shattered the gem somewhere in the park.
When the pack finally makes it back to their locus, there is a message on Ken’s cell phone. Warden Harbrook needs help, he’s decided to close down the park now that a person has died jogging in the park.
