    Default [Nexus] Riverside 13


    By Darklord Bright

    Riverside, a small, modern city outside the reach of Remnant control. The city has always been known by one defining factor, it's status as a hive of scum and villainy. A number of factions vie for footholds in the city, though they are largely peaceful at the moment. No doubt some would jump at the opportunity to expand their influence. Riverside sits on the edge of the Nexus, so while it's still prone to the strangeness common there, it's far more stable than other parts of the Nexus. Being the hive and scum and villainy that it is, the streets can be dangerous and shady deals and dark alleys are plenty. Welcome to Riverside.

    Current Events:
    The Districts:
    Spoiler
    Show
    Northside


    Eastside
    Eastside is mostly a middle-to-lower class, densely populated area. It's fairly multicultural, even by Nexus standards, and inhabited by a wide range of species and cultures.
    Like the rest of Riverside, Eastside has been in the hands of either criminals or supernatural factions for a long time. Now it has changed - a democratic election organized by the Democracy Now movement led to the creation of the Eastside Parliament and a Mayor. They hold the power in Eastside now, and the Hunters enforce the law within it.

    Southside
    Where there was people and buildings as dense as the rest of Riverside, the territory once ruled by the Court of One was emptied by its queen when she vanished. What was left behind was a featureless expanse of land.

    Since then, a number of different people and groups have taken the opportunity to construct their own buildings and get a foothold in the city. What resulted from this is a scattered collection of factions with their own territory.

    Westside
    Most notably, the district of Westside is covered by a field of darkness. During the day, the sky is an inky black, where no sign of the sun is visible. During the night, the field allows the stars and moon to show through it. In place of the sun, the "Light of Evolution" lights up the strange sky. It served to light up the days, but the light is more white than natural sunlight.

    Because of these unique conditions, Westside is home to far more citizens of the variety that would typically avoid the sun by living underground and staying indoors during the day. on the other hand, you wouldn't find anyone that couldn't adapt to the lack of proper sunlight here.

    Westside is home mostly the middle class, tough a section of it houses a much more wealthy class of citizens. Large, old mansions are found in this area, surrounded by fences and large yards. the rest of the district is more typical.


    Places Within:
    Spoiler
    Show
    Northside
    • Malechenar Castle Shadowcaller
      Spoiler
      Show
      The castle is a gigantic structure, far larger than any other building in the city and somehow defying the laws of gravity by levitating right over it. This castle have no visible courtyard or entrances however, just a myriad of strained glass archway-shaped windows surrounded by round black walls. The walls are arranged like gigantic archways which supports structure with smaller archways on top which in turn supports other other archways which builds up the entire wall which is connected by an myriad of spires and build in passage ways. {Reference Image}

      There are five much larger spires coming off from the main structure, reaching up into the air like spikes. Four of them end with large diamond shaped objects made of a red glass-like material. The fifth and tallest spire is in the very middle of the structure and could be called a tower instead as it's much wider than the others and ends with five smaller spires arranged in a similar ways as the ones in the castle itself.

      All over Malechenar sit gargoyles upon ledges which seem to have been specifically made for them, their black skin blending in perfectly into the building.
    • Moth Park:
      Spoiler
      Show
      About 100 acres, the moth park is approximately rectangular in shape, with a bandshell/performance stage at the north end, a soccer field and softball diamond at the south and a forested area in the center.

      It also holds two playgrounds (swing sets, slides, monkey bars) several fountains (most of which are nonfunctional) various statues and a network of walking paths.

      Since the re-opening, Moth park is pretty popular with the local residents as well as those who come into the area to work or visit.
    • Police Station:
      Spoiler
      Show
      The police station is a large but simple brick building. All police activity is based out of this building. It's outfitted with interrogation rooms, a few offices, and other rooms that a police station would have.
    • Riverside Hospital:
      Spoiler
      Show
      This hospital is the only one currently in Riverside. It was built after the old hospital burned down some years ago. As a result, it's of fairly modern design. It works just like a normal, modern hospital would with the exception of magic being used along normal medical procedures to achieve better results.
    • Sawyer's Inn:
      Spoiler
      Show
      The inside of Sawyer's is beautiful, though humble. Whoever keeps the place, keeps it in fine condition.

      The dark wooden floors are waxed and shiny. There are four wooden pillars that reach up to the ceiling. The four walls are painted in a brick red, with light grey accents.

      Along the left wall there is a large hearth fire burning, with a dog and cat sleeping together. The dog raises it's head slightly to observe the newcomers, but doesn't rush to sniff them out.

      Along the right wall is the customer service area, with a dining hall just past it. The smell of freshly baked bread and some kind of meat can be smelled eminating from beyond.

      And then there is the back wall. There is a set of stairs leading up and another leading down. Both sets are made of the same wood as the pillars and floor.
    • Temple of Dalachrech: Earl of Purple
      Spoiler
      Show
      This building closely resembles all the other semi-detached houses along this road. The temple takes up both halves of the house, however; although the building has been designed such that the halves don't match to maintain the illusion of separate owners. It has a red tile roof and is constructed from red brick, although the left half has been painted white. There's a pair of garages and two front doors, both of which work.

      The temple is a private location. Please PM Earl of Purple before visiting.
      Posts for the temple should occur in this thread.


    Eastside
    • Cosiellio's Temple: Harnel
      Spoiler
      Show
      There's a small temple here that just finished construction last week. It's a fairly plain thing, more utilitarian than ostentatious, but it's made of marble and granite, giving it a glowing white appearance in the sun, with Cos' holy symbol in a large carved statue above the front door. It's a shield with feathered wings imposed along the front, giving it the impression of a heart. It's carved impeccably; it must have been done with magic.

      A few of Cos' faithful are here almost all the time - given the informal nature of the temple, everybody drifts in to say a few prayers whenever they're feeling like they should, or whenever they have the time. Cos himself regularly visits, of course, and answers prayers directly.
    • Fallow’s Furry & Feathered Friends: Earl of Purple
      Spoiler
      Show
      The shop is lit up with bright lights and neon advertising. Around the store is a secure, electrified fence and there's four watch towers in the corners. The gate is near a large, secure-looking building within which are three ogre guards. Inside lie four warehouses, a large collection of aquariums and gigantic tanks, a squat and ugly toilet block and three seperate bunkers for customers to evacuate into should something more dangerous escape, such as a smilodon from the Mammal House, a wyvern from the Reptile House, a giant carnivorous slug from the Invertebrate House or something worse. Patrolling the wide, open spaces are the occasional group of six uniformed humans armed with net-guns. Slaves can be bought here if one asks the right questions.
    • Golden Flagon Tavern:
      Spoiler
      Show
      The Golden Flagon Tavern was once the main hideout of the local mafia. It was destroyed, but recently it has been fully restored. It still tends to attract the unsavory sort, but the owner keeps things civil.

      The tavern is very old fashioned. It's a stone building with polished, wooden supports. A fire always warms it's large hearth and the drinks always good. It makes for a comfortable atmosphere.
    • Hunter Lodge: Morty
      Spoiler
      Show
      The main administration building for the Hunter force. The Hunter Commander's office is located there, as well as the rest of the administrative staff.
    • Light's Heart: Shadowcaller
      Spoiler
      Show
      The citadel rises up like something taken from a sci-fi movie. The walls are golden colored, untainted by age and dirt. Like something that was just build just recently.
      Five towers have been built into the wall, standing no less then 40 feet tall, looking like they have been cut out from the same stone.

      Above the towers rises the citadel itself, completely square in form and made of the same golden stone it have numerous arrow slits carved out at the upper floors.

      Leading around it's form is a wooden staircase going from the top of the citadel to the courtyard below.The only visible entrance is the massive gate made of obsidian colored wood which stands wide open, inviting anyone inside.
    • Parliament: Morty
      Spoiler
      Show
      Not far from the Town Hall, the small circular new building serves as the meeting place for the People's Parliament. It includes a large hall for meetings as well as offices for all the members.
    • Town Hall: Morty
      Spoiler
      Show
      Converted from several buildings in the middle of the district, it serves as the seat of the administration. The Mayor resides there.


    Southside
    • Church of Terenti: Reinholdt
      Spoiler
      Show
      This rather classic looking cathedral sprung up overnight by Terenti's blessing. It is holy ground for those it matters to. Every day the high priest Saul, holds sermons to a slowly growing congregation on Terenti's Word, the Seven Virtues, and redemption before the cleansing fire.
    • Harald's Lab: GrandDM
      Spoiler
      Show
      Located under an apparently empty lot in Southside, this facility contains a lot of science experiments and equipment, as well as a large number of robots and orks. Due to the teleblocker and dimensional lock, the Lab is only accessible by Harald's teleporters, and thus by invitation - unless you want to try and dig down to it.

      It is currently undergoing expansion to equal the size of the facility removed from Inside.
    • Lotus Gardens: Wolfbane
      Spoiler
      Show
      The Lotus Gardens are a veritable Eden, a paradise in the middle of an otherwise fairly "normal" city. The entire section appears carved of white marble and smells of sweets, a hint of sweat, and exotic flowers, inviting all to come and stay in the Lotus Garden's Embrace.

      Home to the Slaanesh Cult "The Masks", the population is full of exotic and beautiful appearing people who are always welcoming. Though many just live around the area, actual cultists seem few and far between, wearing their Masks as they patrol the streets as guards.

      In the very center is the Mask Temple, a cathedral of white marble and stained glass windows, surrounded by paired statues of lovers locked in eternal embrace.
    • AMENside
      • AMEN Embassy: AMEN Players
        Spoiler
        Show
        The Main Base for AMEN in Riverside, this building is shaped like a spider above ground and goes fairly deep below ground.
      • AMENside Wall AMEN Players
        Spoiler
        Show
        This wall forms a large slightly amorphous half-circle in connection with the river and clearly designates AMEN's territory. It is guarded by the occasional emplaced turret and has gates for entry/exit.


    Westside
    • Blood Donation Clinic:
      Spoiler
      Show
      A small clinic has been established in Westside for the purpose of collecting blood from those willing to donate. The blood is then distributed to those that require it. This is primarily Tenebras vampires, but any being that requires blood for sustenance can get it here. Some blood can be given to the hospital when needed as well.

      The clinic itself is a small building. Inside there is a reception area, and a few different rooms for the actual procedure. There is usually one person on site twentyfour seven.
    • Cathedral of the Sacred Order of Cunningham: happyturtle
      Spoiler
      Show
      The Westside Cathedral is large enough to house people for emergency purposes, but in general, only the family of the pastor and the groundskeeper live there.

      Pastor Rockwell
      is the Pastor
      Sister Janice is the Pastor's wife, and a skilled hippiemancer.
      Spoiler
      Show
    • Club Pulse: Shadowcaller
      Spoiler
      Show
      The club is quite easily noticed by the huge neon sign outside, Pulse was easily recognized as Riversides largest nightclub. Beyond the line and the bouncer outside is a classic club layout with a large dance floor with loud music and flashing lights.

      In a slightly more calm area of the club is the bar run by an one-eyed bartender called Ryo.

      There are two stairs leading up to the upper floor where it's easier to talk and drink.

      The atmosphere is pretty heavy as you walk inside with techno music playing very loud.
    • Doctor Stroffelnburg's Psychiatric Clinic: Reinholdt
      Spoiler
      Show
      This rather unassuming white building contains the world's finest psychiatric doctor. After the setback at his hospital that caused the loss of the use of his legs, Doctor Stroffelnburg took his savings and set up a smaller clinic here in Riverside. Walk-ins are encouraged.
    • Enforcer HQ: Gulaghar
      Spoiler
      Show
      On the outside, this building almost looks like a bunker. It's a low, squat building constructed of stone. The only windows are on the front of the building and they are small. There is a fenced off area in the back that contains a number of vehicles.

      The lobby area is fairly bare. There are a few different clearly labeled desks to approach, depending on the reason for being there. One is for general business with the Enforcers. The wall opposite the desks is lined with chairs.

      Off to the left is a hallway that goes deeper into the building. An Enforcer guard stands at the entrance to this hallway at all times. At the end of the hall is a heavy steel door with a card based lock. Behind this door is an armoury that contains the Enforcer's weapons and armour.

      On the opposite side of the lobby, there is a similar hallway, though it's not guarded on the lobby side. At the far end there is a door that leads to an area with a few holding cells and a desk for a guard to work at.

      Halfway down the same hall is another hall intersecting it. This hall is lined with doors to a number of offices and other rooms.
    • Evolution Industries: Darkcomet
      Spoiler
      Show
      The Westside branch of EI. The main building is a fairly nondescript, tall (not a skyscraper or anything, but still with several floors) modern one, with a large Evolution Industries logo on it.
    • Evolution Industries Power Plant: Darkcomet
      Spoiler
      Show
      The Class 3 MACE unit offered by Evolution Industries is a large, static installation capable of generating enough power to supply all of Riverside with electricity, and it was Tenebras that commissioned the first of these installations from EI.

      The installation is housed inside a large, reinforced building. The interior has multiple levels linked by elevators and stairs, all surrounding the roughly cylindrical silver crystalline structure that is the actual Class 3 unit. It's quite the view at the top for EI's employees and the occasional tourist, and naturally there are plenty of guard rails. Naturally, office space, bathrooms, and the like are all present in the building, though obviously away from the main spiral surrounding the installation itself. Many computers and other such pieces of equipment are present in the areas around the installation, perpetually monitoring and controlling its output.

      The building itself is guarded and patrolled by Evolution Industries' corporate security division.

      All that is known to the public, but given what Evolution Industries used to do, and the identity of its head, it's possible the place is far more guarded than it immediately seems...
    • Exbourne Manor: Gulaghar
      Spoiler
      Show
      Exbourne manor is rather old, though kept in excellent condition since it was restored when Tenebras moved in. The rooms are large and spacious, and most of the public areas have been painted in bright pastels and decorated with vases of flowers.

      The ground floor largely consists of the lofty entrance hall, a comfortable living room, and the kitchen. Ramiro's office is also on the ground floor for easy access. The second and third floor have mostly bedrooms and attached washrooms. The basement serves as rooms for the servants primarily. In a separate part of the basement is a large vault as well as an Evolution Industries Class 2 MACE Unit which provides the building with electricity. Finally, the attic contains whatever it is that creates the darkness field within Westside.

      The manor is surrounded by a courtyard. An iron fence surrounds it, and a number of trees provide privacy along the sides and behind the building. The courtyard is grassy and has a cobblestone trail leading to the front door. Behind the manor is a private garden. The courtyard's gate is almost always left open.
    • Light of Evolution/Control Center: Darkcomet
      Spoiler
      Show
      Once the Class 3 Installation was completed, the head of Evolution Industries approached the leader of Tenebras with an answer to a question that had been asked of him before-that of bringing light back to Westside.

      The building at ground level is fairly normal-looking, wide but not overly tall. It is marked with Evolution Industries logos, and serves as the control and maintenance center for the site's true purpose.

      The crystalline sphere that serves as Westside's artificial sun, known as the Light of Evolution, floats in the air far above the building, a bright blue beam linking it and the structure. This serves to power the Light. This beam is surrounded by a translucent, shimmering blue forcefield, to prevent anyone from interrupting it.

      The beam is projected from a system usually at the roof of the building, and is taken in by a receiver panel at the bottom of the Light, which is how it powers it.

      The Light brightens and dims as appropriate to simulate a natural day-night cycle, and the beam that powers it dims with it. After all, when it is dimmer, it requires less power. In the darkest times of the night, the beam projector deactivates and the forcefield drops. The former lowers itself down into the building, and the Light floats down on anti-gravity systems with their own onboard power. The Control Center's roof contains a hatch that, at this time, opens and allows the Light to land for maintenance. During the day, this hatch is normally sealed around the energy projector that powers the Light, preventing it from being used as a secondary entrance during this time as well.

      Naturally, the site is heavily guarded by Evolution Security, and no tourists or civilians are allowed inside.

      Interestingly, Evolution Industries has issued an official warning that it is not responsible for the results of anyone flying into the forcefield around the power beam, or the beam itself should those be somehow disabled. It is noted that death or serious injury is likely to occur.
    • MagMart: Lord Magtok
      Spoiler
      Show
      If the individual entering has any sort of familiarity with the other MagMart, back when it was its own building apart from Mallside, they'll probably notice that this Riverside one doesn't look anywhere near as glamorous as its predecessor. It's a modest purple brick building, the glass display windows aren't even properly bulletproof, and the smelly homeless people usually employed to wander around about the front of the store in a wacky MagMascot costume with an enormous cyborg head are mysteriously absent.

      That said, you can still find just about everything here that you can at the Mallside store. Curtains to carpets, macaroni to monkeys on motorcycles, groceries to zombies garlic. The staff is always happy to help (or else), and if you aren't entirely satisfied with your shopping experience, you can pay a small fee to watch the MagMart employee of your choosing get fired out the MagMart complimentary employee morale cannon. Except in this store, the 'morale cannon' is really more of a morale bazooka, and while it's still fun to watch, it's nowhere near as charming.
    • Toy Tinker: Murkus
      Spoiler
      Show
      Here stands the Toy Tinker, a rich, ancient wooden building styled after the sort of boardwalk shop you might've found on Earth in the early American twentieth century. It's a crude blocky affair dominated by sweeping, simple architecture, built in two stories with a basement beneath. The front of the shop is covered by two long, shiny windows, behind which waits a plethora of playthings. Mostly metal work, plus some plastic or wood worked in. The various creatures move about with a life of their own, eyes aglow by some strange inner light. Dragons with clockwork guts waddle alongside tin soldiers run on batteries and copper wire. You can find just about any sort of toy here.

      The Tinker supplies the most lifelike toys anywhere, guaranteed. Just don't ask how the proprietor makes them - unless you're looking for business of a different sort.
    • Westside City Hall: Gulaghar
      Spoiler
      Show
      The newly constructed city hall is a towering, impressive building. It is crafted primarily out of a light stone. There is an old feel to it's design, but it is very much a modern building on the inside.

      It opens up to a wide open lobby. The floor is a clean white and the room is brightly lit by florescent lights. Immediately to the right of the door is a reception desk where a receptionist can be found for direction during business hours. On the left of the entrance is a security desk where an Enforcer can be found. In the middle of the room is a small fountain with several chairs around it. On the far side of the room is an elevator and there are a number of other doors that lead out of the room.

      On the second and third floor there are a number of offices. The mayor's office is on the third floor and there is an office for the Enforcer chief here as well.

    "What kind of demon?" Talaitha asks, reaching into a pouch to draw three cards, hoping that the fates guide her right in what she should do next. Ten of Wands Reversed. Hierophant. Nine of Pentacles.

    The elf will see the Romani looking at the cards before smiling and snickering a little, putting them away. "Well, the Fates have no idea how we should proceed, but they promise success at any rate. Among other things. Though, it's going to be difficult. Now that my idea doesn't seem to work. What do hyu have in mind?"

There's no way it can get a shot to hit, for Clegg came into the fight expecting to be attacked, and so he made it storm and fog. So between the heavy rain, and the massive amounts of green fog flying everywhere, it's nigh impossible to hit. The perfect tactical position for Clegg. The Undead Captain raises his fist again, shouting out, FIRE, ye beggarly bunch of bones, slice their weak mortal flesh to ribbons! FIRE THE SHRAPNEL SHOTS, AND PREPARE THE MAW. The Maw was the massive cannon on the front of the ship, on deck. This huge thing could swivel and turn. It was a huge cannon, and it was built on top of the deck nearest to the front. This cannon turns to face DMside, and after a few seconds, fires. The massive projectile is meant to take down enemy ships in one big flaming shot. The cannon ball is shot, on fire, and as soon as it hits something, the huge thing will explode, sending shrapnel everywhere and probably smashing buildings.

    At the same time, Clegg orders firing of the fifty shrapnel cannons on AMENside, sending a hailstorm of jagged metal and glass down on the HALOites and Clarissa. It is storming, which makes the shrapnel spread, so it will effect a large area. At the same time, the other fifty cannons on the other side are fired, sending cannonballs smashing out there as well, probably decimating a few buildings. Blow them all to HELL! BUAHAHAHAH!!

    AMENside - DMside

    The big cannonball flies in the direction of DMside. Assuming the fog is also woking against Clegg's men, it would have missed, but DMside rose a shield in defense. So it will explode at the shield, giving DMside their own smokescreen.

    "Shields are on 35%." A man shouts as the shield starts t flicker.

    "Channel the energy of the gate shields to the main shield and fokus on the front. Place guards, just in case. i doubt they will attack us on the ground." Mia shouts her order.

    The man just does so and the shield stops to flicker. Then another man comes over his robot carries a pc.

    "High Priestress? We discovered a way to get better aim of the ship. Due to their constant fire and the attack against us AND the shouting of their captain, we are able o predict their movement inside of the cloud."

    "Good. Send in some drones. The weapon still cools down so we can't land an attack. I want to get a safe shot on this ship. Remember our target is to damage them enougth so they flee, we don't need to kill them."

    The man nods and heads away. A few seconds later four objects leave DMside and head for the cloud. They all got an X form and seem to be very high tech.

    AMENside - Beta


    The emerald disapears into the ground and Tovpir follows his leader underground.

    AMENside - Defence


    Again Clegg's massiv attack causes a few mines to explode. A lot less then before.

    "It's a elder fear demon according to my sources." Obriane explains as Talaitha draws her cards, she leans to the side a bit, trying to see what she got. As the Romai suddenly asks a question her attention spins around 180 degrees back to the other woman. "Umm... I think I told you my plan already. It just wasn't working out. So I need to think of a new plan." She thinks for a moment. "The best way I think is to find out more about the demon, that's usually how you beat something this powerful. Find it's weak spot."

    "Yes, I get it, you're all Slaanesh types here. Attractive people with libidos bigger than my over-inflated sense of self-worth. You don't have to-"

    Magtok stops abruptly, blinks, and glances at those red eyes a second time.

    "Wait wait wait. You said Rebecca. That...you? Here? Clothed? How? What is this, I don't even-"

    Oh snap, Becky's cover has been blown! And so has Magtok's mind!

    "Surprise"
    And the Shadowmancer did grin...
    "I was wondering if you'd make it all the way to Lady Jezebel without catching on, Tin Man," she says in a sing-song voice, turning back to head to the door.

    "Alternate dimension Becky? Secret twin who's messing with me right now? Head injury leading to amnesia bring you here? Mind control? If it's mind control you can tell me, I don't care enough to help AMEN bring you back. Did Ilpholin have you split in half, too? Wait no, that's doesn't make sense, you don't even have a decently-dressed half. Not even a well-dressed tenth, for that matter."

    Whatever the case is, it's obviously not the Becky he knows, acting of her own free will. It couldn't be. That's not true, that's impossible!

    Search your feelings, you know it to be true!

    "Nope, nope, nope, would I even know, don't care, she broke my heart, and Lady Jezebel wants me to be 'a proper lady'," 'Rebecca' replies dryly, holding the Temple door for the cyborg. "After all that was going on, I couldn't stay. So I came back here," she explains, wrinkling her nose a bit. She'd suggest Magtok try it but (a) this is Magtok and (b) even if she didn't hate his cyberguts he has catgirlfriends and probably has fleas.

    "So you finally realized you were being used as little more than a cheap lay, and-" Magtok stops himself midsentence, the harshness of his own words catching up with him, biting him with their venomous fangs before he can go any further. It's time to face facts, Ilpholin hurt people. She ruined lives, and he just sat around the base the whole time ignoring it all, telling himself the victims deserved or wanted it. Not just that vampire boy fell prey to her vile and obsessive brainwashing, but Becky too, probably. It doesn't help that he feels a similar sense of betrayal, though obviously far less intimate than what was going on with the recent Mask convert.

    "Right, well, err...that was probably for the best. Riverside was a trap, and when I called Ilpholin out on that, they called me the traitor, so I left too. So, umm...good luck with your proper lady thing, okay?"

    That...wow, I think he actually meant that. Obviously he'd never go so far as to say he's sorry for anything, since this is still Magtok we're talking about, and he has his pride preventing that sort of thing, but I think that's as close to an apology as he's ever come with Becky, or ever will.

    Leaving the Northside Temple of Dalachrech

    Shanaya Evilene Klisvane, a 14 (almost 15!)-year old girl, wearing clothing befit of a Brand-New-Novice of Dalachrech, leaves to go down to the Southside Temple.

    She walks the whole way, 'cause she's a Player Character and Player Characters always decide to go walking.

    On the road between Northside and AMEN'sside

    It would be so incredibly awesome for some random attack/encounter/vampires/whatever to befall Shanaya along the way (hint, hint).

    Edit: of course, it's only logical for her to get lost on the way, so basically anything can happen.

    "Thank you."

    Becky says nothing more, but her back does stiffen a bit, and she remains in uncomfortable silence as she leads Magtok the rest of the way to Jezebel.

    "The bane of all fear is courage in the face of it."
    Talaitha suggests, looking at the door again. "Perhaps we should push on then? Fear only hurts us if we let it after all."

    Lotus Temple - Magtok

    Magtok will be lead to Jezebel's office, where she's waiting in her usual revealing toga-style dress. She gives Rebecca a smile and nods, gesturing for her to leave. Once she does so, she gives Magtok a smile as well. "What do you think? Of both this place and of her? I understand you two worked together."

    Obriane scratches the back of her head and looks down at the ground. "Eh... wouldn't that be... a bit bullheaded? Not sure if I want to charge into the lair of a elder demon with a complete stranger." She laughs nervously. "Not that I'm scared or anything of course, it just seem a bit... foolhardy."

    Magtok takes a seat. "The place is very...very you. Beautiful, charming, hypnotic. A subtle undercurrent of danger, of playing with fire every step of the way."

    Of making Magtok doubt his heterosexuality, but that's not something he'd ever admit to anyone.

    "As for Becky, or Rebecca, or whatever, I was never too close to her. The assless chaps made it kinda hard to take her seriously, as you can imagine. No idea how you convinced her she was wrong about that."

    "What do hyu recommend then?"
    The woman asks with a slight smile. "If we aren't to go in, and they aren't able to come out, we're at an impasse."

    Lotus Gardens - Magtok

    "There wasn't, really." Jezebel admits. "Except it was so...debasing. This place is about one thing." She starts, giving him a small smile. "A new start. For anyone. The Lotus Gardens taken in all sorts of people. Give me your poor, your downtrodden. Give me the whores and refugees and I can give them all a place to live. I house them, feed them, offer them warmth and comfort. I can educate them and give them clothing. Most importantly, I give them a shoulder to lean on and cry to. And all I ask in return?"

    "Just a bit of understanding about what we are and friendship to everyone else here. I nurse everyone back to help, despite whether or not their issues are physical, mental, or emotional. I have apartment complexes where people can rest without having to worry about paying rent. Sure, they're communal, but it offers a chance for interaction in a place where they'll grow healthy." She says before grinning. "Besides, some people like such group things." The daemon points out with a wry smile to Magtok before shaking her head.

    "But no, like I said, there was nothing wrong with Rebecca acting or dressing how she was, but she came to me for comfort after that trash abused her. In return for her confidence, I'm molding her so she'll have some self-respect and the ability to take care of herself instead of having to rely on others. In the meantime, I get a wonderful handmaiden and a good student."

    "Gods do not earn their title by being easy to kill, Magtok. One need only look at a single pantheon and see all the gods constantly seeking to stab each other in the back to know that, despite their arrogance, they have a knack for survival. If not, each pantheon would surely soon be reduced to just a single god. One could argue that getting rid of a god would be almost as impressive as, say, actually killing you off for good."

    Yes, that's a compliment.

    Probably.

    Maybe a hint of a threat too. Though there's nothing sinister in Black's tone of voice.

    "As I said, you impressed Affidavit. If you expect us to deny that what you did is impressive when we've already said it is, you're very much mistaken. Father speaks the truth when he says he has no desire for conflict with you any more. It is...a waste of resources. However much he may criticise your methods, you have proved yourself a worthy adversary in the past and you've done some very impressive things. You've killed a god. Now Father finds himself wanting to know how to go about doing so. So he's asking you."

    "Come in with me, Irena. This is going to take a while." Welp, looks like they aren't just dropping anyone off. Nadia wouldn't even think of it!

    Nadia leads the way inside and to the emergency area. She explains that the unknown baby is sick or somehow unhealthy and that Eliseo might have a similar issue. She's not sure exactly what. She explains a little bit of the situation at the kidnapper's house. They need to wait for a while, but nadia uses that time to call the police and explain what happened. Looks like she's going to have to talk to them in the near future about missing child stuff.

    Eventually, a doctor is able to see them. he gets right down to business after asking nadia and Irena a few questions. He starts by examining the obviously unhealthy baby, with Eliseo coming next.

    Magtok clears his throat. Right, down to business, then. "I'd like to know what his intentions for this knowledge are, and how much he's willing to part with in exchange for the the truth. If you're not lying about me being here as a guest, that I'm not to be tortured and such, then you already knew there was going to be a price tag attached to this information."


    Lotus Gardens - Magtok

    "You're certain, then, that she's not just trading one mistress for another. Or at least, if she is, that you'll be able to turn her against that sort of thinking." Magtok words it as a statement, but his tone carries nothing but questions and uncertainty. Jezebel might be pretty impressive, but some people were born to be sheep. Destined to follow, to do what they're told without question or thought. Breaking a lifelong habit like that sounds nigh-impossible.

    "Riverside is doing a thing. I don't know what yet, but I was there, at the Skyside party, and I could tell even without overhearing anything that the River reps were saying that something might be happening soon. With my name off the AMEN member list, and with the Riverside branch of MagMart in particularly dire straits, you can see why such information might have its uses. I know that no matter my reputation elsewhere, I'm merely a minor businessman in this neighborhood. I understand I'm hardly worth inviting to whatever talks may have happened or will be happening, I know all of that, but I still can't help but feel snubbed."

    "Aside from any personal projects he embarks on, Father's work is always focused on improving us. I'm sure you can see how a god might be of use in this. Not that we plan on going on a massive god-killing spree or anything, not at all. If possible we want to avoid causing any violence. But when dealing with such beings it is worth knowing how to gain the upper hand should it be necessary."

    Black falls silent for a moment, contemplating the second part of Magtok's query. Of course there's going to be a price. No doubt quite a hefty one too. Knowing Magtok, it's not unreasonable to assume he already has something in mind...

    "Name your price, Magtok. What do you want?"

    "They did, yes." The woman admits, frowning as she thinks of Obraine's plan. "At least, they said I would give aid to something near a place of suffering, but hyu were the only one I saw near one." She admits before a smile crosses her lips. "Unless hyu think the demon is what I'm supposed to help?"

    The woman chuckles at the joke.

    Let's hope it's a joke.

    Lotus Gardens - Magtok

    At that, Jezebel just gives Magtok a slightly annoyed look. "Magtok, honestly. Don't you think sending an invitation to a shindig to you would be a little wasteful? After all, there'd be nothing I could do to really prevent you from coming anyway. I do recommend bringing some information to trade though. I promised only the heads of three of the governments here, and you don't count." Jezebel points out before a small smile crosses her lovely lips.

    "But a part of the banquet is to discuss how to take care of AMENside should this attack fail. Then the question becomes what do you wish in return for the info."

    "There's a simple enough solution. I'll just attend without claiming to represent anything. You haven't already picked out your plus one, have you?"

    Magtok, willingly attending an important gathering as someone else's date? Putting aside his own brand and image to play second-fiddle to someone else? Dear gods, he must really care a lot more about that MagMart than I thought he did.

    "That aside, I can't really say I know what kind of currency you deal in. I have all sorts of information, if you're in the market for secrets. If you need hard data on a Westside smuggling ring with a MagMart as its front, I can do that. This or that about Watchtower, NO, GLoG, I can help out there.

    The MagCave has bodies capable of killing, listening in, and creating things, if you'd rather something like that. A laurel made of Elementium, maybe? We've acquired some recently, thanks to that stupid war with Excelsior. It'd look nice with the toga, and there's not exactly very many other means by which you could acquire the stuff, seeing as Excelsior is a mob of bloodthirsty eunuchs."


    Creationside

    Magtok's lips curl into an awful, twisted, almost masochistic sort of 'you are totally going to try to punch me in the face for this and I don't care' grin. He clears his throat and steeples his fingers together, barely concealing that obnoxious, infuriating smile of his.

    "I want...two things. A name, and contact information."

    He leans back, already getting ready to roll with the punch that's sure to hit him square in the face.

    "There's no dragoness on my list, and I mean to fix that. Black, I'd like you to fix me up on a date with your mother."

    "Actually, I had been intending to bring a priest of Dalachrech as my +1 for reasons related to the banquet, but since I am the Hostess, I'll just mention it's a +2 to everyone involved." Jezebel admits with a wry smile. "You don't have problems with a threesome, do you?" The daemon asks with a chuckle before frowning when she thinks of Excelsior.

    "I admit, Excelsior really does seem the Eunuch type, don't they?"
    She asks rhetorically with a raised eyebrow, pondering the issue. "Though, they appear to be all Olympian Males, so I could send Juan to test out the theory, but knowing them, they'd probably catch on too quickly. I would like the Laural though." She ponders aloud before setting back and putting her legs on the table to stretch them and letting Magtok see how underdressed she really is underneath that toga.

    "As for information, I always have need for such, and I can always get such on short notice. I just need to know a few days ahead of time. It takes a bit to have one of mine start a "relationship"."

    Being a child with no known records due to the circumstances, the doctor would inform Nadia that they wanted to keep the child under watch at the hospital in case it's condition were to deteriorate. As of now, it seemed to be steady although it was definitely sickly. There was some talk of possible long term effects although they were followed by assurances that they wouldn't be the catastrophic type so much as there possibly being some occasional difficulties that a normal child wouldn't need to deal with.

    Eliseo, on the other hand, would prove to be a surprisingly robustly healthy child. Really, all that might be of circumstance would be the need to bring him back in a few weeks for a checkup on his condition and to sooner or later apply a round of booster shots for his system. Other than that, he would be no worse for ware which was likely a welcome thing to his mothers' ears.

    Well that's a relief about Eliseo, and it looks like the other baby will be okay in some time too. Nadia is hopeful at least. She'll leave her contact information for if anything comes up with the baby and then leave him there. She's going to have to visit too. She can't help but feel responsible for that baby.

    As they walk out, Nadia puts her free arm around Irena and leans against her a little bit. This day has exhausted her down to her bones. She doesn't say anything, but Irena will be able to tell she's finally winding down.

    "I don't think that demon needs much more help." Obriane remarks without any mirth. "But do you serve the cards themselves or an entity which communicates through the cards?" Apparently the distinction is important.

    But as they stand there talking however there is a third woman approaching them, coming from outside the hospital. She has long unkempt brown hair, freckles and glasses, her simple jeans and shirt worn out long ago.
    She's walking quickly but in a way that suggests she's carrying something, her blank eyes stare right ahead.

    That's a relief. Irena puts an arm around Nadia's waist and proceeds to lead her wife and Eliseo back to the car. It was finally time to get home. It hadn't turned nearly as bad as Irena had expected, that thief had been a pushover and Eliseo was okay.

    Now they just needed to get home and forget this ever happened.

    "There is the upper floors but we haven't really decorated them yet." Zareen explains. "So we could go and see Sekai now if you want, she should be at her office."

    When they do arrive home, Nadia says. "I think I'm going to have a nap. I'm exhausted." She certainly looks it. Even if it is still the morning, it feels like it's been a long day already.

    "You came a bit too early to see this place done up nicely. It's still a work in progress." Vax adds.

    The cyborg laughs, and shakes his head. "Jezebel, you know me. Any day of the week, I'd be more than willing to bottom for you. For you, not for Spiderman. I'd already be in a position to be diplomatically torn to shreds even without the bug priest, but when you add him to the table, then I'm a foreign business interest with even less weight than the controversial invertebrates. Let's not pretend I'd be more important than the priest; I'd be your number three, and with that carries a certain insignificance that not even I'm sure I could shake free of. I'd have a better chance of being taken seriously if I went in drag as Ramiro's latest mistress."

    He doesn't show even the slightest hint of shame as her legs are propped up against the desk, his eyes wandering up, down, and then back up again to make eye contact once more.

    "Anyways, I can have the wreath ready before the party. Any fancy toys thrown in? Would you like a built-in laser? Two-second forcefield activated with a thought? Something more in keeping with your usual style and religion?"
