- Within the Developmental Neogenetics Amalgamated facility, the pack first encounters what appears to be an intricate and advanced sort of greenhouse. The plants within, heavily genetically modified, seem to bear no spirits despite being healthy and thriving in the physical world. They also discover a gazebo-like structure in the center, beneath which is a passage leading downward into the ice.
- Below, they find a heavy sort of blast door that parts without obstructing them, and beyond that a very mundane, almost boring office building. It seems impossible that it would be sheltered beneath the ice of the Alaskan coast, and yet the occupants and employees seem to pay the Garou no mind, seeing to their tasks without distraction unless interfered with. Splitting to search for the ancient frozen wolf and the artifact it sheltered, the pack seemed to have free reign of the place while finding little of interest beyond computers, a strange flower with a single little Desire spirit circling it, and finally finding an armed and armored guard lying on a cot. After snatching his weapon, the man set off an alarm that seemed to rouse other security forces.
- A quick but bloody battle resulted in the deaths of nearly all security forces, giving the Garou only a moment’s pause before additional invaders descended from the elevator’s shaft, this time in the form of a Pentex First Team. Not anticipating werewolves, the strike force still boasted enough silver weaponry, expensive gadgets and mystic abilities to make the fight a lethal one. The aftermath left both Jack and Jules “Against-All-Odds” Scranton in a frenzy, while Artorias “Downfall” Thorolund lured them into the elevator in an attempt to keep them from the others. The combined weight of three crinos forms brought the whole affair crashing down, putting an abrupt end to the matter.
- Attempts at interrogation were made with the remaining First Team member, even if she had been brutally blinded by a swipe of claws. She knew little, other than to say a man named “Allred” had dispatched them here to acquire the ancient, frozen wolf, and that they knew as little of the facility and its occupants as the Garou. The occupants themselves seemed next to useless to interrogate, their memories fragmented and their identities thinned. Only when Tommy Knockraha attempted to wrench the artifact up from its mechanical moorings did they respond, and then it was to simply go insane, uselessly attacking the crinos Garou like animals.
- Jack was sent to climb up the shaft as something of a pulley system, while Amun slipped his way up to the Pentex helicopter outside, cutting down the remaining soldier and “convincing” the pilot it would be in his best interest to fly them closer to Lawson. In the end, the pack opted to allow the pilot and surviving First Teamer a chance to live, sabotaging the radio and fuel supply before disembarking with their prize.
- Returning to the Sept of the Weeping Daughter, the pack howled their tale and presented both the frozen dire wolf and the artifact to the Red Talons. Sensing a mystically kindled covetousness to the power of the ancient fetish, they served as its guardians until Old Storm-Chaser proclaimed himself the caretaker. Sensing his resistance to the drum’s lure, the Wolves of Montauk relinquished their prize and returned to planning what to do about the town of Lawson and its deep-rooted Wyrm taint.
