    Default Wonderland: Rise of the Jack (IC)

    (Player slots are hereby closed! To discuss a new Game thread please speak with us at This thread and we'll sort you out)

    Chess Board Zero

    "Welcome to Wonder Jack Casino's opening night! We are proud to present over a hundred tables, six hundred slot machines, three fully stocked bars, and many more wonders for your gaming pleasures! With all of these dreams and prizes far beyond belief, it's no wonder without Wonder Jack!" The giant voice shouted through out the street in that huge city of Bradford, England in 1899. The casino was filled with lights, music, and eye candy on every inch of the gigantic structure.

    On the gaming floor, it was pure pandemonium and chaos with every blackjack and poker table almost filled to the very brim. Within seconds fortunes were gained and lost with the flip of one card, or the turn of a crank. Waitresses served free non-alcoholic beverages; they were clad in the least amount of clothing that they could possibly pass off as legal.

    Among all of the colorful lights and raging crowds hungering for money, as an old man who sat in his office chair, watching with his cane planted at his side. He was dressed in a black tux with a blue dress shirt underneath his jacket. His sunglasses hid his eyes as they gazed out the window. Even with his casino taking off with an opening night that far exceeded expectations, he did not seem the least bit impressed. In fact his finger still tapped the handle of his cane as if he were waiting. Still he waited with anxiety that was very palpable. Soon, very soon, but for now, he waited.

    A rather tall young woman with dirty blond hair and large brown eyes comes sauntering down the street. She looks well-bred and expensive, and is wearing multiple pieces of exotic jewellery. She stops and looks at the casino with interest ... and grins.

    A tall, dark haired, muscular man walks in carrying a suitcase. He looks around the casino with a huge grin on his face. Feeling in the mood for a test of fate, he walks over to a roullete table and plops down in a seat.

    A pretty young woman, with short black hair, standing so that a slot machine and the flow of people hid her from casual view, smiled, patting the hidden pocket she'd sewn into the front of her dress, to make sure none of its contents were showing, watching the dark-haired newcomer's path closely.

    And, once he sat down at the roulette table, and she was sure he really was a gambler, and probably rich, her smile widened, and she stepped out of her relative concealment, mingling with the crowd of people, so that she was able to detach from the current next to him, looking just like any other patron of the casino - Anrielle was worthless as a gambler, and she knew it, but she was equally aware that she had a nice face and a way with people, and she was sure that she could, if nothing else, convince him to use a bit of her money in a bet, with a promise to repay what she'd lent him, and a bit of the profit on it; probably she'd actually be able to get him to give her some of his money as a gift, or, if nothing else, an effective, though not technical, payment, one of the risks of playing on her looks being that someone would like them more than she'd hoped. But at least if that did happen, she'd picked someone reasonably good-looking, so as long as he wasn't completely horrible in terms of personality, it would at least be a tolerable prospect.

    "Hello," she said softly, extending a hand to the man, once he'd made a bet and the wheel was spinning, so that there was no chance of being blamed as a distraction if he lost, all of his active parts, for now, having already been completed. "Anrielle Hunter. You?"

    Taking out half of his money from his wallet, he turns to the man running the table. "You know how they say always bet on black? Well tonight is a ngiht for breaking old trends, ! I want all this on red 7." he says and laughs. After he places his bet and the wheel starts spinning, a gorgeous woman walks up to him. Taking her offered hand, he stands and offers her his seat. "A pleasure ma'am, my names Tony Virmire." he says in a light New York accent.

    Catherine strolls in, and immediately stops in her tracks. All the lights and voices and sights and smells are - for a moment - too much. She shakes herself out of her stunned daze, and approaches the bar.

    "It's nice to meet you, too, Tony," the woman replied in a moderate British accent, with a hint of Scottish in it, gratefully accepting the offered seat. It may put her in a bit of a weak position, but that could be used too, and her feet hurt. "What is it that brings you here?"

    "Oh nothin much, just here to see the sights." he said making a point of looking her in the eye. Then he asks, "What about you? A pretty girl like you can't be here all alone, right?"

    A child that could have been anywere from thirteen to seventeen manages to walk in with the rest of the crowd. Pulling his shapeless grey hat on his head down on his face, he scans the room for weak-willed rich twits with cash. Sure, being with a group that is older that he is is hardly his sort of modus operendi (he prided himself on his vocabulary), but the fact is that few of the people here realy paid much attention to there purses. He blinked his brown eyes once and smiled.

    Ah, yes, the faint-looking one near the opening who has no idea what she is doing! Walking over to the girl-women ( he realy could not tell if she was nearer to his age or to the older men around) he comes near the bar and takes a seat, all while attempting to exaggerate the muscles that made him look older than he realy was. He waited for the girl to get out of her daze and take a seat, for the only ones open where the ones near him.

    The tall young woman takes a seat at the bar and orders a vodka. After all, she came to the city to try new things. She is revolted by the first sip, but soon gets used to it, and slowly empties her drink while looking around for something interesting.

    Err, miss? It seems that your downing that stuff fast. Are you alright? He was honastly rather surpised by this. After all, if the girl had problems or needed something, this could turn from a attempted robbery to a buiness negotiation quickly.

    Catherine turns to look at him. He doesn't look well-bred, which initially invokes suspicion.

    "I'm just fine," she says. "Aren't you a bit young to be in here?"

    Heh, me? Nah, legal age and everything. Actualy, it was just that you seem quite young to be drinking such a strong drink, and from where I am from a young women drinking heavly, alown, is never a good thing.

    Seeing her hard stare at his rather sad choice of clothing, he nods, laughs a bit, and says " To be fair, I suppose that I could have worn something better than my old hat and this tattered jacket, but it's the warmest thing I own. It's cold outside, and I walked here."

    "Oh? And why not?", she asked, looking straight back at him, gaze not wavering from his eyes for a moment. "I can take care of myself, after all, and not being committed to anyone when I arrive means I have a lot more choice in things now that I'm here."

    Shocked by her intensity, Tony reasses his initial judgement of her. "Would you care to get a drink with me?" he asks, walking away from the table before the ball stopped.

    She grinned, standing from her seat at the table, and starting to follow him off to wherever it was he was going, though, as he'd mentioned a drink, she assumed the bar was their goal.

    "Certainly. Though perhaps we should wait a moment on doing so? I doubt anyone is going to try tracking you down to give you your money if you win, after all..."

    Pausing he stops and thinks for a second. "Hmm... well your right they probably won't." he says with a laugh then adds, "Tell you what. If you'd prefer you can wait and collect any winnings, ill have a drink waiting for you at the bar." he says with a wink and walks away.

    "Right! Red seven it is then!" The man exchanged Tony's coin for some gambling chips. With the game set up along with nine other people. With all of the wagers put down, the clerk put the ball on the roulette roller and around it spun. "Alright, the bets are placed and we're ready to go! Good luck to you all, and lets all have a ball." Round and around it spun, and soon the ball came to a stop, it took a moment to slow down to where the clerk could see it, but as he did, he called out a number.

    "Black 28!" He shouted, "We have no winner, sorry folks." He collected the tokens but gave them back to whoever bet on the color black. "Place your bets folks, place your bets."

    Meanwhile, at the bar, while the young lady and the boy talked, the security took notice of the boy who probably didn't belong. It wasn't long that a security guard found his way to him.

    "Excuse me! Young man, I do believe you have a card that you need to have in order to take part in this casino's opening night, might I see yours?" He said, and made sure the boy got a glance at his night stick in which he used to beat upon ne'er-do-wells.

    "Ladies and gentlemen!" The giant voice said from all of the brass horns in the walls. "Wonder Jack is proud to present our main event for the evening! The challenger, Tony Virmire is set up to face off with our Heavy Weight Champion boxer, Kenneth Squire Junior! All in attendance please make your way toward the center ring located in the east side of the casino, and all staff involved with the fight please get to your posts!"

    The old man's hand was now grinding on his cane with excitement. The time was very close, and the night was getting ready to sing a song that brought the world's true fate upon it. Was he dressed properly? Was he ready to meet the real world in this state? Was he too old? None of that should have mattered at that point, if he wasn't ready then than he never would be. It was getting so close, he could taste it.

    Err.... The night stick was a bit too big for his tastes, and the last thing he needed was a bump on the head. He looked at his pockets, trying to remember what stuff his friends planned out... wait. Crap. He looked around for his fellows, and could only see a single other grey-capped kid, and he was careful in not paying attention to the guard while his hand was slinking into a fat ladies purse. He actualy, to the guards surprise, walked up and pointed to the other grey-capped person in the crowd. Sorry, Tom. Your going to take the fall for this one.

    "Good sir, my ID was taken from me a few moments ago by the man right there, yes, the one right there with his hands in her purse!"

    He looked in the direction of the girl. Brat never even looked at his face after she downed her vodka. If he makes it out of this, she is going to loose some of the change in her purse, without a doubt.

    "It's not my money, Tony,"
    Anrielle replied with a laugh, continuing after him. "You want to lose it, that's your business."

    Of course, just as they arrived, she found that she likely wasn't going to have time for a drink after all...

    Pulling out his pocket watch Tony checked the time. Damn. I thought I had a little more time. Calling back over his shoulder he said,"It seems that our drink will have to wait until after the fight Ms. Hunter." Then he took a light jog into the lockers to get ready for the fight.

    The lights came on all around the boxing ring, and as the stage hands readied the outside seats, the ushers showed the spectators to their proper arrangements. Above them all, the old man arose from his study, accompanied by his two young lady servants. He had no great entrance, nor was he announced. His boredom was quite present in his expression, obviously not interested in brutal, physical sports.

    "Good evening ladies and gentlemen!" A very well dressed, top-hat man stood in the center of the ring. "Please be patient as our contenders ready themselves for their glorious battle for the title of International Heavy Weight Champion! Until then, we present to you our pre-show delight, that wonderful, light-hearted joy, Smiley the Clown!" The band began to play cheerful clown music as their face-painted entertainment came out in an aristocratic, purple outfit with a white wig, with a big-red smile make-up along with the glittery white clown paint framing it.

    "Hiya folks! Bummy good weather we're have-" He was interrupted by a bucket of water splashing onto him. "Oh! Bloody hell!" Much to the laughter of others around him. He honked a horn hooked up to his purple coat on his chest and laughed along with them.

    Tony stood in the locker room, shirtless and wearing his custom shorts. His trainer had just finished lacing his gloves and was now rubbing lard onto his face. "I don't see why you have to do this." Tony complained. "This will help the punches slide off." His trainer said. When his trainer finished rubbing the foul stuff on him, he began warming up. He ran in place and began shadow boxing. He made his way out of the room and down the hall. He felt adrenaline begin pumping through his body. I'm actually nervous! he thought amazed, then he smiled and continued shadow boxing. Good. It'll keep me focused. hearing the sounds of the crowd and the band made him more nervous and excited. His corner crew opened the doors for him and he walked steadily towards the ring. He tried to catch a look at the Champion as he climed through the ropes.

    It was time for Corwin to shine...as much as an usher could shine. Today, he had to keep the crowd from getting too close to the boxing arena, and generally make sure there wasn't any chaos that wasn't part of the show. He didn't actually have any formal combat training, but Corwin was tall, looked strong and could resist being pushed over, and that was enough. At least he got to watch the match for free.

    No one rushed the visiting boxer as he emerged from his locker room, so Corwin jogged over to the Champion's room. "Hurry up, the other guy's ready!" he almost shouted at the crew, grabbing one of the locker room's double doors and pulling it open...

    After the clown's small performance it was time for the evening's entree of entertainment.

    "And now, lady's and gentlemen! Wonder Jack's casino is proud to present our evening's main event!" The announcer said from the center of the ring in the loudest voice he could. As he did, Tony came into the ring, much to the crowd's delight, as did the Champion himself, making his way through the crowd with the help of the ushers clearing his path.

    "In the red corner! All the way from New York, USA! Tony Virmire!" The crowd gave a great cheer, allowing Tony time to gain his thoughts and guts.

    "And in the blue corner!" He said as the massive man climbed through the ropes and took off his red and white robe. "Born and raised in the great city of London! The Crasher Disaster! Kenneth Squire Jr!" The crowd gave their applause once more and the referee motioned them both into the center of the ring.

    "Alright, lads! I want this fight by the books! No punching below the belt, no neck shots, no unnecessary taunting, and no hitting after the round's ended. If you both understand, bump gloves and lets have a good fight!"

    Kenneth, showing his respect, held out both of his gloves to Tony to bump, and the bell sounded, signalling the first round.

    Meanwhile, outside of all of the excitement, an old bloke stood behind the young Corwin and smiled, "Good day my dear boy!" He took off his bowler hat as a greeting. "Always had respect for a hard working lad. Here you are." He said and held up a rather large coin and gave it to him.

    Upon inspection of the coin, it was a bit larger and much thicker than a fifty-cent piece we would know today. On the coin it had a single rose with a blood drop hanging from one of the thorns. On the other side, it simply had a heart much like one from a deck of playing cards. It looked to be made of a metal that resembled silver, but not the least bit tarnished.

    Had Corwin thought to thank the old man, he couldn't. The old man was gone without a single trace.

    The coin was the exact shape of the coin slot on the extremely large slot machine that several workers set up in the main lobby. Mr. Jack Winston himself had it custom made and set up piece by piece to be the most beautiful slot machine there ever was. It was eight feet tall, and covered in marble and fine white gold. The coin slot was far too large to accept any normal coins. But if Corwin wanted to get to it, he was going to either wait for his break or get by the very large supervisor waiting by the lobby entrance.

    Tony nodded to Kenneth and touched his gloves to the Champs. He backed into his corner not taking his eyes off of his opponent. As soon as the bell rang he came out swinging. He charged towards the Champ and lead with a huge right hook, hoping to catch him on the jaw before he was expecting it.
