THE FATE. Criminal organization based in New York City. The Fate began as a club of spiritualists headed by parapsychologist Otto Schmidt and the mysterious Madame A. After a murder on their premises in 1930, Schmidt and Madame A went underground, using magic to establish a foothold in the New York crime scene. Their fame and reputation grew until they were seen as a threat, and in 1951, Madame A was rubbed out in a Mafia hit. Two years later, the Fate appeared again, with the mysterious Stephen Alzis at its head. When the dust cleared, Alzis and his cadre of wizards were the effective heads of organized crime in New York, though they rarely made their influence felt. The Fate is headquartered at the city's most notorious nightspot, Club Apocalypse, where almost anything can be had - for a price. The Plastic Wax Factory, purveyors of intricate and fine molten effigies. All your gods, demons, monsters and creatures of the abyss to Leech Lords of the Cthulhu mythos, witches, warlocks, and lunatic residents of asylums the world over still murmuring their arcane incantations. Plus the odd tome, sigil, place of interest and manifestations of magical mumblings amongst the cursed. All are represented here in glorious molten plastic wax, set alight and melted into puddles of primordial grotesquerie. Recommended for the mad and delirious and those fine folks from Leeds, Hull and Scarborough.
