Dresden Files Accelerated: Emerald City: Requiem
SITTING ATOP THE WELLSPRING
Redmond is the home of Microsoft, Nintendo of America and other major Technology companies. The area is small, but has one of the highest per capita incomes in the State. Redmond is a small town with some very big fish in it. Partially it has to do with the major Leyline it sits on, both generating energy and receiving it. Redmond sits on an area rich with the power of Air and Intellect that either intentionally or not is being redirected into a Place of Power. The has been dubbed The Well Spring by local Spellcasters, of which there are few since local Computer firms are of little interest to most Magic Users incapable of using their products. But there are Talents being born to the area because of the sheer number of people and because the Wellspring has started to have effects on the population. It could explain why there are so many bugs in Microsoft products.
TESLA, TECHNOPHILE SORCERESS
ASPECT: HEAD OF THE REDMOND RANGERS; REALITY HACKER; THERE ARE ONLY 7 LAWS THAT MATTER; OLD WORLD = OBSOLESCENCE
Formerly a Member of the now defunct Emerald City Eldritch Engineers(Ecees), Tesla decided not to join The White Council as an apprentice with a sizable portion of the Ecees and decided to start from scratch in Redmond with a more Alliterative name. The Redmond Rangers are an Occult Organization of magic users. They are like the Ordo Lebes, but they recruit from those Talents that emerge from the employees of the various High-Tech firms around Seattle and in particular Redmond. Their predecessor organization, the Ecees had bold goals of becoming the Amazon.com of the Supernatural Community, but those dreams came crashing down. Many of the old Ecees became apprentices to the White Council, but some stuck in Redmond with Tesla to continue what they wanted to do, develop their abilities X-Men style. The Redmond Rangers’ goals are much less lofty: Develop our powers without getting our heads chopped off. The only saving Graces of this organization is that they take the Laws of Magic very seriously. But that doesn’t change the fact that Tesla was one of the Ecees who kept finding ways of using Magic to make money and wanted to use that money to be more like the Alphas. This comes from the fact that the Redmond Rangers were established in conjunction with the Alpha’s Outreach program. Right now this organization is just a bunch of small fish….but really smart small fish.
