The Syndicate Revenge Plot went off without a hitch and finished with a bang! Thank you all for your active participation, if it weren't for your dedication, such fun and detailed plots would not be possible. Below you can read a summary of the plot and discover all the possible results you missed!

Syndicate Revenge Plot Summary

The Syndicate returned to Casa di Cavalier for summer 2017. At first they tested the Cavaliers by setting traps and marking their scents near the borders. Gradually the intensity of the traps increased, clearly becoming intended to harm the pack members. During this week Howland, Arthur, and Isaac were sent to Halifax to investigate. In the night, while Howland was hunting, Arthur and Isaac were taken prisoner by the Syndicate. The Cavaliers, upon hearing the news, vote in favor of sending a small group of spies to infiltrate the location their pack mates had been taken too. Grynn Garcia-Knight, Rurik Ivanov, Jace Wolfe, and Arlen Stryder, with the help of a loner named Theo, who was also trying to rescue his friend Josephine (LaBelle, successfully rescued their fellow Cavaliers and Josephine. After staying in Casa di Cavalier for a night of food and rest Theo and Josephine decided to stay.

Realizing that the Cavaliers had out witted them, the Syndicate sent a small party to attack Fort Kingsbury and take hostages, testing the defenses of the knights. Unfortunately for the Syndicate, two of the scouts, Tessa (Raskin and Darius , turn on them and fought alongside the Cavaliers, ending the attack quickly. After questioning the two Syndicate deserters the leadership learned that the Syndicate originate from a pack in Portland but had left to pursue more aggressive means to their ends, starting up a gang in Portland first, then moving to Halifax. Tessa and Darius had traveled from the Portland pack to investigate rumors of the gangs violence in Halifax.

After the attack an eerie calm settled over the pack lands, the Halifax Syndicate base seemingly abandoned. After weeks of silence a loner named Leoris Steinmeister called a warning from the border, the Cavaliers arrived just in time to greet a large group of Syndicate. The leader of the group, identified as Laurent, declared the Cavaliers to be bullies and demanded they leave the territory to settle elsewhere, or suffer consequences. A battle erupted for the lands and the Cavaliers came out on top. The final battle was difficult and the Cavaliers did suffer consequences - many were wounded and long time members Clara Bates and Julien Gauthier, were killed on the field. Leoris, impressed with the knight's skills in battle, and pleased to see the gang that had terrorized his merchant business gone, decided to stay and help the pack recover.
