Deltakere: 12-13 players

|AJ Smith (Lead GM)|
There are gentlemen's clubs. There are clubs for estate agents, engineers, policemen and lawyers. There are the Masons. Then there is the Highgate Club, which caters for those who live extra-ordinary lives.
The Highgate Club overlooks Highgate cemetery, and membership is by invitation only. Its membership supposedly includes witches, warlocks, immortals and vampires - but nobody really knows for sure. (It is considered impolite to inquire.)
The club is presided over by three senior members, Commodore Ed Crouch, Kensington Hammersmith and Tris St James and, generally known as the �inner circle�. Other senior members are known affectionately as the �outer circle�. Anyone else is an ordinary member.
Tonight the auction for �the Volcano� is being held. The Volcano, and its remote Pacific island (which has been named St Martin�s-in-the-Pacific). The Volcano has been left to the Highgate Club by the will of the previous owner, Mycroft Holmes, a reclusive dark magician and member of the club. According to the Rules of Holmes� will, a committee of three Executors (Kensington Hammersmith, Sam Bexley, and Gabe Islington) will sell the Volcano in accordance with certain rules. These rules are known to include a sealed bid auction, as well as certain other requirements currently known only to the committee. The island is expected to sell for at least ￡100 million.
