The original members of S.N.I.P.E. held an open house/demonstration/experiment meeting on Friday evening. Several students and professors were in attendance and the company explained their mission, answered questions, and distributed experimental pharmaceuticals. Among those distributed was a vaccination for the Wendigo Virus followed by the virus itself to a student (NPC) volunteer.
During classes on Saturday the student injected with the Wendigo Virus was brought to the Alchemy Lab; she was having adverse reactions to the virus, but had not fully become a Wendigo and her violent outburst were subdued and similar to those of an angry and slightly homicidal teenager. A solution was decided on and the student's core temperature was magically raised and she was placed into a medical coma and brought to the Healing classroom for further treatment. She was later cured. Company members checked in on all those who had been given treatments the previous evening and no other (seriously) adverse effects were found. Several of these students were offered positions within the company.
On Saturday S.N.I.P.E. was gifted a share of property on Virginia Isle from an anonymous donor who had been impressed with their work. S.N.I.P.E. also has several prominent donors who currently wish to remain anonymous.
Several members of S.N.I.P.E. will be attending the Yuletide Escapade and will continue the work of the company throughout their years at New World Magischola.
S.N.I.P.E. is always looking for new members who are passionate about creating a change in the world of the Magimundi. If any are interested in the work of S.N.I.P.E. please contact Xyia Braithwaite.
