SUBJECT: Truth Behind the Calcutta Incident
Good evening my illustrious council members. As you are ready to hold your convention in New York City, recently reclaimed (for good) from the Sabbat, I figured now would be the appropriate time to send you my findings on the Calcutta Incident – AKA, the Week of Nightmares.
In short, there was NO evidence of antediluvian activity. The nuclear strikes were a result of (and I will cover each point in detail):
1) Poor nformation.
2) Hasty decision making on the part of the Tremere.
3) A terrorist cell of political dissidents in China.
ON POOR INFORMATION
Suffice to say, there was no antediluvian arisen to consume us all. Such stories are simply fear-mongering spread by less enlightened minds. The picture, below, was taken near ground zero when the so-called ancient was rampaging through the city. (See Attachment 1.)
What you see here is a wraith, crossed over into our world because of the intense violence between the Keui-Jin and our Kindred brothers. It is a pathetic creature. Certainly not a Methuselah, such as Zapathasura, who fought bravely against the eastern invaders. The glowing, which some said was a result of the ancient’s presence, is simply an optical illusion created by phantasms.
I’m sure folks at companies such as Terril & Squibb or The Orpheus Group would probably appreciate receiving such elaborate hoaxes to debunk.
HASTY DECISIONS FROM THE TREMERE
A Tremere who was on ground in Calcutta reported the situation incorrectly. They panicked and took such vistas as attachment 2 to mean that the apocalypse was coming. The Tremere even testified that this picture was taken at 1400, local time.
Total rot. The sky’s odd color is a result of several large chemical-based bombs that went off during the day. Some results of such applied chemical weapons can include hallucinations, fugue, and general confusion. The Tremere, Lorenzo, was probably just under the ill-effects of one such detonation. When he reported that Ravnos had arisen, he was mistaken.
Of greater concern to me is that the Tremere have been withholding information on this, “Project RAGNAROK.” I recommend an official inquiry be opened.
The second nuclear attack was a strike from Chinese dissidents, as our Las Angeles Kuei-Jin representative was quick to say. While we may not normally believe the likes of Miss Xiao, she stands to lose just as much if the nuke was of Chinese government origins.
The Calcutta Incident was a result of poor planning, poor execution, and poorer judgment on the part of the Tremere. Gehenna has, predictably, not begun.
