Tremere Diary

Exempts from the diary of Don Miguel Cervantes de Francisca

Description:

Written in a nearly indecipherable hand in a heavily antiquated Spanish dialect, only a few select fragments of the diary of Bombay’s former chantry master, who apparently met his end at the hands of the being only known as “Sin Cara”, is yet to be translated and decoded.

However, with diligent study, and more than a little help, from a yet to be identified source, Thomas Blackthorne has managed to glean a certain amount of intriguing insight from its crumbled pages.

Diary entries of Don Miguel Cervantes de Francisca – Bombay Chantry regent

At last! After far too many nights wasted in this desolate, heathen cesspool of a backwards haven of sycophantic troglodytes something useful has been brought to my attention. The local ignorants babble of a ruined sanctuary nearby consecrated to their flea-ridden monkey god supposedly guarding a secret of immense mystical value guarded by a faceless demon tasked to punish those who trespass against their simian lord. I fear neither flies nor flung faeces, and if there truly is worthwhile lore or relics there to be plundered, they shall belong to the Pyramid soon enough!

Remarkable, from the dung-heap of local superstition and ignorant idiocy a true gem has appeared. The so called chalice of Hanuman that my childe Hector and I recovered from the jungle shrine after the power of my blood “persuaded” the leprosy ridden wretch of a local priest to part with the secret of its location is a treasure far more valuable than even its gilded exterior would have one think. I have not yet had time to subject it to through examination and testing but even at a glance, the obvious power of this artefact is beyond doubt. And once this power is mine… we’ll see who will cast who aside so easily at the next conclave!

Impossible, I almost dare not pen these words for fear of being proved an even greater fool than that lack-wit coward Etrius believes me to be, but all my experiments have confirmed it. The chalice is not merely a container nor a generator of quintessential power, it is a focus. Painstaking research by Hector have confirmed that two immensely powerful leylines meet in a conflux exactly where the statue was found, and through amazingly skilled spell-craft woven into the design of the chalice and the materials it is wrought from, which I no longer believe to be mere gold, this elemental force is drawn upwards, into the chalice to be collected for purposes I have yet to fathom.

More meaningless chatter from the chattel and our serfs about the “wrath of Hanuman” and the vengeance of “the faceless demon” I fear this “Sin Cara” no more than I fear the ravings of the lepper priest. Let lesser beings fear the punishment of heathen idols. I have more important work to attend to. I have nearly unlocked the power of the chalice… and once I do, I believe the Counsel of Seven are due for a demonstration… Prague or Budapest should do nicely I think!

Screams of panic and fear intrude upon my studies again! I hear Hector’s voice outside the oaken door to my study, babbling… pleading? What nonsense is this. As if any foe could shatter the spell-warded stone of my chantry. I should discipline the oaf severely, but there is no time I’m close… so close now. All I have to do is drown out the distractions of the meaningless sounds from outside my sanctum and focus. Soon True Power shall be mi…
