Court of Contra Costa
Status Report, 6/1/99

          The Trinity collapsed last week. The werewolves have decided that the vampires' dedication to it was insufficient. Conveniently enough, the shapechangers demand that the Kindred demonstrate their enthusiasm by wiping out the local pit of Black Spiral Dancers - corrupted lupine. Should the newly installed Prince - Coriana, childe of Devon Ashmoore, enstated after Jeremy Archdeacon fled the werewolve's displeasure - decide to try to placate the lupine by engaging their enemy, then the werewolves will have managed to get their cake and eat it, too. The garou will have set two of their traditinal enemies against each other. No matter what the outcome is, the ranks of those enemies will be reduced.

          I have no information about why the mages chose to leave the Trinity simultaneously, but I suspect that Marcus' inreasingly negative opinion of both vampires and lupine, was a factor. Marcus' departure from the area immediately prior to treaty's collapse, most likely foreshadowed the departure of the magii in general.

          At the moment, the area's courtiers are most concerned with dealing with the Black Spirals, which suggests that they wish to preserve the Trinity. However the court is paralyzed by political bickering, a lack of clear leadership and a general feeling of malaise. Corianna's attempt to assert Princely authority may be a case of too little, too late.

          Several newcomers have arrived, including one Agent Stanton who claims to be working for the FBI. However, since he also claims to believe that werewolves are aliens, I am not too sure about his reliability. He is either a lunatic, very cautious, or both. Once I have established a better relationship with him, I will let you know.
