    Default [NEXUS] MaGLoG II: Alcoholic Boogaloo

    THE GAMBLING LEAGUE OF GAMBLING!

    Located in the scenic city of Inside, in the slightly-less-than-scenic Red Zone, Magtok's Gambling League of Gambling (or MaGLoG, as some are prone to calling it) is open for business! From our slot machines to our Shots-Machine (a robot bartender, in case you were wondering), we've got it all! Everything you could possibly want or need for blowing your children's inheritance, wasting away your wealth, and driving yourself right into the poorhouse in a dangerous game of chance is right here! A fully-stocked bar with a wide variety of beverages you probably shouldn't be drinking before fooling about with large sums of money, robot dog blackjack dealers trained to detect and pounce on cheaters, live entertainment every night, and more!

    Da' Locations:

    Slot Machines - You know 'em, you love 'em, they're in every self-respecting casino: they're the slots. There's three different kinds of slot machines, all set aside in their own section of the gambling floor, with varying payouts. Get three M's in a row, and you win the jackpot! If the machine fails to turn up any matches, or you wind up with three Remnant flags in a row, you lose.

    Blackjack Tables - Also known as Twenty-One, this here's a thinking man's game. Inasmuch as a possibly rigged game of chance can be, of course. Robot dogs run these tables, and gods help you if they catch someone cheating.

    Other Games of Chance! - I honestly can't be bothered to write something up for every casino game available. So yes, there's roulette, baccarat, craps, poker and whatever else you might expect to find in a casino. If you absolutely must play something harder to follow and write for than Blackjack and the slots, then go ahead. I'll totally be passive-aggressively glaring at you from my OOC corner the whole time, though.

    The Bar - It serves drinks. They have funny names, with maybe a luck and gambling sort of theme to them. Do you really need me to tell you any more than that? If I'm busy, just have an NPC hand you a drink and leave me alone.

    The Stage Cabaret Lounge - Not far from the bar, here's where you can find tonight's entertainment. Patrons are discouraged from heckling performers or trying to join them onstage by a combination of our polite but firm security detail and the fact that most of our performers are pretty capable in a fight themselves. Please don't make a scene, and remember: The casino is not liable if you come back out substantially less intact than when you came in.

    The Restaurant - Wait, are you serious? There are people in the Nexus who actually eat food? Weird. Let's include a restaurant for 'em, then. Toss in a buffet line and maybe dress up the bartenders like those card guys from Alice in Wonderland. Take some flowers and paint them red too, just to go with that general theme. Oh, and make everything really expensive for no good reason! High prices on everything, even the salads! Woo, that was easy!


    Employees Only:
    Spoiler
    Show
    Backstage - Exactly what it sounds like. Dressing rooms, controls for the lighting equipment, etc. I don't think I really need to go into much more detail, honestly. There's enough privacy back here to do something rotten and immoral, so long as you're quiet about it.

    Employee Lounge - A water cooler full of red wine sits here, as well as a number of couches, cushy chairs, and some silly motivational posters. I honestly don't really see this ever getting any use, but I'm including it anyway just in case.

    Dead Elf Storage Room - This isn't where the Gambling League of Gambling keeps everyone's coats and weapons. No, that's the next room on this list. This is where unmentionables go, at least until they're needed elsewhere. Drugs, refugees, hostages, confiscated customer materials...basically anything and everything Magtok can get his villainous hands on.

    Coat and Weapons Storage - If you've got a prominent sword on you when you come in, it gets taken here. If you'd like to drop off your coat while you stay, you let the staff put it here, too. Pretty self-explanatory. Attempts to rob the Coat and Weapons Storage room will be seen as an attack upon the casino itself, and such thieves will be executed on the spot by Magbot staff.


    Access Restricted:
    Spoiler
    Show
    Maggy's Office - Y'know, I really don't see why Magtok insists on including a private office for himself in all of his businesses. It's not like he can't just telewarp into his home at any given time, after all. Anyway, there's some chairs for people to sit in, pretty purple carpeting, green $ sign wallpaper, a hidden shotgun strapped to the bottom of the mahogany desk, and a framed picture of the moon on the back wall. He's probably got more sneaky tricks and murder-weapons hidden in here, but I have no idea where they are, so you'll just have to figure it out on your own.

    The Chamber of Honesty and Fair Play - There aren't many rules here in Club Magtok. All the more reason to emphasize them, of course. Anyone caught cheating or otherwise getting on Magtok's nerves is brought into this filthy, disgusting, soundproof concrete room. A number of hammers, nails, circular saws, and other toys stand on a shelf off to one side, just begging to be used on any unlucky sucker dragged in here.

    The Big Important Money Vault Full of Money - This is the grand vault that both stores patron's money, and houses the machine regulating the flow of slot machine tokens. A series of tubes and pipes connects all the slot machines together, because apparently Maggy was just too lazy to include a token-storage unit in the slot machines, and couldn't be bothered to stuff an entire jackpot's worth of tokens in each one.


    Da' Rules and OOC stuffs:
    Spoiler
    Show
    Disclaimer stuff: The Gambling League of Gambling is meant, obviously, for more than just losing and winning currency in a setting where currency means absolutely nothing. Underneath the neon gleam and polish, there's a dark, seedy underbelly to this MagCasino, and folks are free to try to interact with it. Entertainers may have to throw away their dignity just to nail that big gig, security personnel may find themselves paid to keep quiet about all manner of dark secrets, and anyone trying to expose MaGLoG for what it is will almost certainly be dealt with in an exceedingly brutal manner. We'll work with just about anyone, so long as there's money to be made.

    Anyways, rules!

    1: I hate to steal from Vael's Mallside post, but please don't destroy the Gambling League without discussing it in OOC first. Chances are I'll say no, but it doesn't hurt to try, right? Who knows, maybe your idea is just cool enough to warrant the destruction.

    2: Please don't have huge fights in the casino. Broken bottles are okay, radioactive homing magic bullets are not. Exercise some restraint, and if you have any doubts as to what will and won't be tolerated, please ask the management.

    3: The casino is public, so please, no curtaining, or drug use beyond the expected alcohol/nicotine junk. Unless you're not a Remnant investigator, successfully pay off the right people, and get a private room for that sort of thing, of course. Even then, try to keep it short and most of it to the imagination. There's other people doing stuff here too, y'know!

    4: I am not always going to be online, unfortunately. I know, it's a huge shock to me too, but apparently there's this "Real Life" thing that insists on getting in my way! It teams up with this big tough guy called "Sleep" to drag me off every now and then, too. Feel free to NPC-ify the casino staff a little. It has to be within reason, though. The bartender will serve whatever you want, but you're not going to seduce that dealer into giving away all his MagTokens without at least a little Mag-involvement.

    5: Don't think about the layout much. Like Inside and Mallside, it'll change when it damn well feels like changing. Maggy's office might be upstairs today and smell of cheap Coffin Nail cigarettes, but wind up on the ground floor tomorrow, with a faint odor of coconut oil and human remains. The slot machines might be in a completely different room, or within shouting distance of those slovenly drunks at bar.

    Final Note: The Gambling League of Gambling OP is presently (and always will be) a work in progress, I'm afraid. Feel free to enter, as most of it will stay fairly consistent, and we'll do our best to notify the public of any major changes, but anything and everything could change at a moment's notice, so please, watch your step.

    Oh, and any similarity in name to charity organizations focused on redemption are entirely coincidental. Totally, completely, and absolutely a coincidence. So don't bother suing.


    News Update: The Masks are currently on the premises, holding a 'slave' auction party thingy, and everybody who's anybody is going to be there! For more information, go look at the OOC thread!

    She hands over her invitation and saunters into the area where everyone's gathered and takes a look around.

    There were just so many +1s she could have brought that bringing any of them would severely disappoint the rest! So none got the lucky choice. Besides. Having a +1 when you enter makes it that much harder to leave with a new +1.

    "I'll just show you." Reinholdt says, and with just the briefest of winces, he shapeshifts into his normal cat self, clothes melding in and pink eyes disappearing. He sits there on the table and watches Dena for her response.

    Not his best exit, and he didn't quite befuddle and perturb her as much as he'd hoped, but by and large, I think we can call this a success. When it comes to auctioning Magtok off, there'll probably be one more wallet on the line, furiously out for revenge, hoping to get the winning bid and make that cyborg pay by washing windows, dusting floors, painting walls, or whatever else it is that she'd be able to come up with.
    [Cabaret - Nadia and Irena]

    "Pffh, I'm not planning to drink all of this tonight but this way I don't need to go back to the bar all the time. Want some?" She opens the bottle and offers her a sip.

    Cabaret - Dena and Reinholdt

    That certainly causes her to raise an eyebrow. "Whoa, I didn't know you were a druid. You really didn't seem the type." She observes as she watches Reinholdt's catform. "Are you protecting nature from here?" She then asks with a slight smile.

    [Cessie and Magtok]

    The mage sigh and shakes her head, she hadn't been finished with the cyborg but it didn't matter now, she did disagree with him though. "Have a good evening yourself Magtok."

    Now she turns to the rest of the party and notices an familiar figure. Was that... Ilpholin? She looked a bit different but it was possible she was wearing some sort of costume. The clothes were revealing as always but she had tried to accept them by now, just as she tried to accept the clothes of everyone around here.

    Slowly she approaches the drow/demon and attempts to catch her attention by waving a bit, "Ilpholin, that was quite a while ago. How are you?" Cessie asks in a gentle voice.

    "Pfft. Druids. They envy me and want to get in my pants." Reinholdt says, licking a paw and rubbing his ear.

    "I'm actually a full on cat, with the ability to turn into a human."

    [Cessie and Magtok]

    "I'm doing good Cessie! Really good!"

    "Hope you are as well." Ilpholin adds.

    To her credit, Ilpholin is probably wearing one of her least revealing outfits of all time! Except when she wears the big fluffy dresses that she likes. Which is rare.

    "Lolth came to me in my dreams and blessed me with a newer, better form! I'm so lucky. What do you think?" Ilpholin turns to let Cessie see all of her.

    Depending on how good she is at reading his body language, she'll notice his ears falling back a bit, uneasy. "I'll stay to watch you." He agrees to after a minute. "Maybe I'll even bid." He adds with a nervous chuckle.

    Javert and Missy

    Javert takes a step back from Missy and gives a bow as he gestures her towards their seats. "After you, my lady." He says, sounding completely sincere.

    Dressing Room

    "That night had been a show, Kirk. Nothing more."
    The Lady says as she steps behind a screen to dress. Of course, the light behind it provides a lovely silhouette on the paper of the screen. "Saw Feia and wanted to meet her at her own game. I don't own anyone, and I never will." She explains before giving a peek from behind the screen, smirking at Kirk. "I just wanted to piss her off. I still have that hat if you want it." She adds before going back to dressing. "I think it'd look dashing on you."

    Reelshka isn't very good at judging non-goblin body language, but she can tell Pathfinder is uneasy. Her ears perk up and her eyebrows rise when Pathfinder mentions bidding. Oh? Well, it'll be interesting, then. Who knows, maybe you'll win, she adds. Either way, it's a way to help those poor people in the Red Zone.

    Cessie just briefly glances at the drow/demon, not really wanting to look too closely. "It's certainly an interesting change." She replies, not really sure what to say. "You do seem a lot happier so it must be helping you... who's Loth if you don't mind me asking?"

    [Cabaret - Nadia and Irena]

    "Fine, doesn't really matter anyway. When do that thing start anyway? I hate waiting." Irena comments as she pours up two glass given to them by the barkeeper.

    Cabaret - Dena and Reinholdt

    The drow blinks, "A cat? Okay, that I did not expect..." She looks slightly awkward. "Uh... so what does that mean exactly? Being a cat I mean."

    Defelent's eyes certainly linger on Dani, but they also linger on several other people around at the moment. I've got a predetermined maximum for Defelent, because I thought it would be a good idea. It might be a bit high, but until the bidding starts I don't know. It could be too low, especially given the people here.

    Kirk chuckles. Pissing Feia off is something he can get behind. "Keep it. I don't need another hat all that badly anyway." The trouble with any other hat is that it isn't his hat. He's rather fond of his hat.

    To the very most observant, the smallest amount of tension that was barely perceivable to begin with has left him. "So I take it that you'll be running the auction tonight." He can tell Jezebel isn't the type to play second fiddle. Her title gave it away in any case.

    [Cabaret - Nadia and Irena]

    "I don't think it'll be all that long, but I have no idea." Nadia shrugs and sips at her drink. "Try to be a little bit patient, for me." Nadia bumps her shoulders into Irena, smiling sweetly.

    "I am. Going to be the first auctioned off as well."
    Jezebel says before stepping out. A black dress hugs her tall and curvy frame. "And I do hope you'll bid on me. If you excuse me though, I need to prepare an announcement and have the show start. I'm sure these ladies would appreciate your help." She says before trying to "squeeze" past Kirk, making sure to be more than a little too close before going past.

    Pathfinder and Reelshka

    "I admit I don't have much."
    He mentions, feeling somewhat embarrassed as he pats the rather small looking pouch of coins at his side. Looking back to her, he gives a small smile. "But I'd be honoured if I won."

    Ilpholin is surprised!

    "Lolth is the Spider Queen. She's the goddess that the drow worship."

    She probably notes Dani, but at this point in time, does not leap on Dani's head, rip her eyes out through her ears and tell her to stop eavesdropping on people.

    That'd just be rude.

    Kirk gives Jezebel a quick elevator look, and he likes what he sees. "I do look forward to seeing you on stage." He says, leaving his bidding plans a secret for now.

    Once she's gone, he turns his attention back to the women that needed assistance. "I'd love to help you ladies out." He says with a charming smile. He just has to be sure to get back out there by the time the auction starts.

    "I see. Well, I'm glad for you then Ilpholin." She tells her with a faint smile. She did have few questions but you had to take it gently with Ilpholin. In a way she was rather sensitive.

    "We don't have drow or Lolth in my world but if sure she blessed you for a reason." Cessie doesn't seem to have noticed Dani just yet though. "So what have you been doing otherwise? It was such a long time since we saw each other."

    "Oh... so how do you feel about non-cats then?" Dena wonders, not really sure what to think of this situation.

    [Cabaret - Nadia and Irena]

    Irena is bumped and smiles back a bit, "Don't worry, I will be patient, it's all just so new to me. That's all. All these rich people make me uncomfortable." Don't you forget something here Irena? The fact you're very rich as well now?

Dionysius reaches out across the table to attempt to grasp Grace's hand between his.

    "And, at least in my case, worship is sustaining to a god in ways nothing else can be. Without people to acknowledge our existence, we simply fade, shrivel, and become naught but a myth in the annals of history. Some gods think of their worshipers as nothing more than cattle, but for me, they are my caretakers, keeping a tired old memory alive for another day."

    "It isn't just scale, and most men do not gain what I would qualify as worship." Grace says, frowning as she withdraws her hand and place it in her lap. "Those that do have largely set themselves up as divine figures, I would not approve of them either. Worship asks for a level of subservience, a certain amount of degradation, even, promoting the myth that the being in question is somehow superior, something that must be lauded and honored and appeased. It may even go so far as to imply that this being must be appealed to have success, that otherwise in a given endeavor, you are helpless."

    "Ah yes, 'As dogs are to men, so too are men to Gods.' An outdated, overused concept that sadly grows more popular the more a god distances themself from their people. Let me ask you then, how you would solve this situation were you in my position? I walk among men, no more elevated than they, and exchange good fortune for the chance to remain living. Should I simply end? What more can I give those that would follow me, or should I simply convince them all to let me die?" That is why he claims to have come here after all, to gain a better understanding of how to please his followers.

    "We don't have drow or Lolth in my world but if sure she blessed you for a reason." Cessie doesn't seem to have noticed Dani just yet though. "So what have you been doing otherwise? It was such a long time since we saw each other."
    "Thank you. Ah... I've been working on some projects actually."

    She pauses.

    Reinholdt hops back into his seat and turns back into his human form. That clearly went very poorly. She was supposed to snatch him up and cuddle him cause of adorable.

    "Much of what I object to is inherent to worship, no matter how much you try to ground yourself." Grace says with a sigh. "Being more grounded will reduce some of those effects, but it won't do away with them. As for what I would do, if I found myself in your situation... I'd look for alternatives. The universe is vast, and worship seems like a peculiar thing as a requirement for life. Do you really need worship? Or is it a less complicated need, that could be fulfilled in another way? Can you find a way to change that aspect of your nature, or generate 'worship' from something non-sentient?"

    Grace shakes her head. "There are so many powers and things out there, or even just in Nexus, that I cannot truly believe that you must, inevitably, subsist on worship. I can believe that there is a possibility that such a thing might be complicated, or rare- but I would try. If only from a selfish perspective, ridding yourself of such a limitation would be a good thing, as it would eliminate a way you might perish."

    Dionysius sighs, slumped slightly in his seat. With a lightning fast gesture he tilts back his head and pours the rest of the nearly full champagne glass down his throat.

    "We all have a brash youth, even and especially gods. In our infancy, we needed naught but acknowledgement, the same as any other sentient creature. After we learned to claim lands and peoples under our power, that power swelled and sustained us, and we became more concepts than phyical beings. With so much power flooding our veins, living without becomes nearly impossible, and those few that are forced to try descend into a state of a disproven ideal, scorned as falsehood and proof of the idiocy of past generations."

    The god shrugs, and relaxes back into his chair, "Perhaps, with your upcoming study of magic, you could reveal a supplement of some sort that has not been found by my lazy brethren. Somehow, I doubt that most would take such a substance, even if it was offered." The sad truth, he's afraid. The gods he knew were far too content with the status quo.

    "Somehow I doubt it." Finally getting around to his drink, Icarus sniffs at the shot of whiskey cautiously before -assuming it's either free of poison or any toxins within are hard to detect by scent- sipping at it.

    Rather good. Certainly better than the disgusting highly violatile chemical-laced moonshine he normally drinks. In a second there's none left, Icarus grimacing a little as the drink hits him full force and wisely choosing not to go for a second shot. "Is the catering on the house, or do I owe you for the drink?"

    "Not yet." Cessie admits. "It's just an illusion, there are still a few months left before I'm supposed to have the children. I myself am working on a few projects actually. Trying to create a golem for example, had some help from your brother, he's have been a great help actually. Very insightful." She nods.

    And how did your secret mission go exactly? I'm not ruining anything here am I?

    "Ah, that's a shame... I used to have a cheetah you know? Technically it wasn't mine but I petted it every day and took care of it. It was called Mirrian. Were there any talking cheetah's where you're from?" Dena asks, obviously remembering things here.

    [Cabaret - Nadia and Irena]

    "You can take a person off the streets but you can never take the streets out of a person." Irena quotes(?) "I don't think I will ever get used to that much money. Should buy a yatch so we can go on high sea adventurers." She says with a smirk.

    It's a long-term thing. You're fine.

    Ilpholin's face screws up a bit though. "You've talked to..." Ilpholin trails and bites back whatever she was going to say.

    "Hmmm. Afraid I don't know much about creating servants like that. Hope it goes well."

    "Huh. Yeah. Back on my world, every cat what you people call house cats. Only each one had the ability to shift forms into a larger cat. For war or work usually. But we had cheetahs among them, yes." Reinholdt explains.

    Nadia laughs a little. "Now that sounds like fun. You know, I've lived pretty close tot he ocean all my life, but I've never been on a boat." It seems a little odd now that she thinks about it. Funny that it never really occurred to her before.

    And now you're erecting a large mimed sign pointing to it. See, this is just going to make him think that Magtok set up a sign pointing at a unicorn you gave him.

    "That is why you're mistaken sir. Ninjas do not hide all the time. I especially didn't when I was still hired as a medical advisor at Umbrella. Being a ninja helped me be a doctor, because everything I did was more precise."

    He looked at Kal.
    "It really is true." he said as his hair turned into tentacles and brought a shot of whiskey up to his mouth, which he drank in a single gulp.

    "I'm confident it will." Cessie replies, avoiding mentioning Nada's again for now. "So you aren't here with anyone?" She casks while looking for any potential partners the drow/demon could have had with her.

    Okay, good luck then. If you need help with anything just ask okay? I haven't done anything for watch in ages.

    Irena shrugs once she taken a sip from her own glass. "Neither have I. 'just heard that's what 'rich people' are doing once they get too much money. Of course I have been in riverside lake a couple of times... hey, we should totally spend a day there now that you can get out in the sun!"
