You can get already get a good selection of books for, literally, one dollar.

What you need to understand about the apocalypse is that you aren't Mad Max. You're part of the skull pyramid in the background.

RE: [World of Darkness] New Babylon
The Dark Resurrection of Wes
(aka the “Wesurrection”)


Purification
There is some foreign, malignant force within Wes. It needs to be removed, or at least significantly weakened, before the Final Ritual can commence (see below). Other preparation steps can still be completed beforehand though.

How? That’s up to you to figure out.


Preparation
Several things are required for the Final Ritual:

1: A Death-Bag
The remains of Wes must be placed within a Death-Bag. You can construct such a thing out of two or three Wraith’s Cauls, depending on their condition. The Cauls have the power to transform one dead thing into another by way of… “rebirth”, although that term is quite inaccurate.

NB: Spirit matter brought into the fallen world of mortals tends to vanish or evaporate. If you can acquire some Caul scraps and need to store them before you have obtained the rest, you will need some suitable container with mystical properties which can hold them.

2: Blood of the Father
Vitae from the Sire of Wes must be used in the Final Ritual, added with the remains inside the Death-Bag. The blood must be given willingly and for the purpose of passing on undeath to the recipient, just as if it were used for Embracing a mortal.

NB: Blood from the Grandsire, Great-Grandsire, or further up the lineage probably also works.

3: Thaumaturgy
There is a 13-segment clock which must be filled before the Final Ritual can be performed. This represents a wide assortment of tools, ingredients, preparation of the body, etc. You can work on the clock during downtime as a Long-Term Project. If you can think of something appropriate to add to the ritual as a tool or resource, or happen to encounter something during play which sounds helpful, then a Fate Roll during your work on the Project will determine how many extra segments of progress this will add.


The Final Ritual

Once all is ready, the Final Ritual is an Occult-type heist. This heist will require at the very least some Attune rolls to complete the ritual itself, but you should also be prepared for drawing the attention of ghosts, lower spirits, and for a Beast-ridden Wes to try to tear himself out of the Bag prematurely.

Finally, the ritual requires a human sacrifice to provide a living soul, a spark of life for the vampirism to attach to. Wes will acquire a new Trauma during this resurrection, based on the nature of the person used in the sacrifice. Choose your victim with care.

What you need to understand about the apocalypse is that you aren't Mad Max. You're part of the skull pyramid in the background.

We should sacrifice Amy to save Wes.

edit: HUMAN sacrifice?! DAMMIT. Can we try anyway?
