May have to watch the place over time, which Giles may have already done.


Any reason Giles is staying in the car? Does he mention why he's not coming in?

Early evening, more people coming than leaving. Giles has been driving across country picking up the PCs and sped from picking up the last of you to get you all here tonight.

Giles isn't going in because there are blanket warrants for his arrest (& all Devas) and he needs to lay low.

No hotel or extra elevator buttons. They are not hiring.

As soon as Jeff's PC & Ashe post their initial actions, I'll post the results of everyone's actions... while chatting her up, are you ordering & tipping big?

Sure, Ember will accept a couple of drinks from some of the men at the tables.
She'll stand next to the men who have large amounts of chip in from of them.
If they ask her to sit down, she'll tell them in a poutty voice that she has lost all her money.
She accept drinks or money they may let her wager.
She'll ask them: Do you come here often? Does he get comps at the casino? Does he know the casino owners?

Mine was to head to the craps/blackjack tables and watch different things (like I have been posting) while playing. I have 40GP to spend over the night.

Okay, my bad. We'll reconcile everyone's actions once Telgarth posts his initial actions...

Those of you gambling, I'll try to get a map up tomorrow (without Telgarth's token yet), but do you try to stick close together on the same table (or near) or spread out throughout the casino?

Telgarth uses the alias Jamison, tries to modify his looks minorly, leaves longsword with Giles, but wears his holy symbol under his clothes. He needs a starting $ roll. He is looking for areas that may be used to disappear from view/hide. Trying to find camera blind spots, watching patrol and cart routes. He is also looking for weapon sources other than the obvious - table legs, chairs.

Telgarth spends no more than 20 gp gambling, but does eat well. Who knows when we may rest again?

Ok, one way or another we'll have a map up tomorrow, but I'm having trouble opening the nicer one Ken found. At worst, we'll use the first one we found, but we'll have a map tomorrow...

I take it you all are entering seperately and not advertising you all are together, and give it enough time to get a feel for shifts, etc, so I'm going to say after 3 hours of playing, shopping, eating, observing...

(Stu's PC): sleeping in the car and/or talking with Giles.

Blade: You find sunglases from 15gp to 120gp, and the 'badass' ones you like for 95gp. On the craps table, you are up 50gp, and you notice that a lot of people are winning, and all 3 dealers that rotate through your table give you that same 'bad vibe' that the monsters that killed your family gave off, and they all ask you questions, "You look familiar, do I know your family?", "Hey, what brings you here this weekend?", "So, have you signed up for our player's card?" (hands you an application, you think fishing for your name) You get the same vibe from the waitress that comes by you, and she seems to look at you intently...

Ember: Already answered the 'casing the outside' questions, once you go back in & start flirting for chips, drinks, it works surprisingly well, since most of the table you're at is winning and feeling good. You get a 'bad vibe' from the first dealer that reminds you of the monsters that attacked your family when you escaped, but then it goes away and you don't notice it again from anyone else. Your free chips & drinks and your winnings add up and you have an extra 75gp. You aren't used to exploiting your feminine wiles, being the former loner in school, but it's working very well and you are really enjoying yourself and feel very good. You have 2 "Golden Keys" for a chance to win a car tomorrow, so far. Most of your suitors are from the city & play regularly and are here for the car promo this weekend. They all make comments like, "So Where's Jo, he off today?" to the dealers. None seem to mind as these new dealers are doing pretty well by them... Most are familiar with Mr. Mui, the owner, as he often walks the floor giving away chips to customers...

Ashe: <10+6=16 bluff (disguise) check> The stools are padded leather, but you think they're metal, since they're bolted to the floor, but the tables are all made of wood (including the legs). You quickly win your 'soft max' and because so many others are also winning, you keep playing and are up 250gp and have 3 "Golden Keys" for tomorrow's drawing. You notice that all the dealers look pretty experienced with cards/dice, but quite a few don't know where the bathrooms are, bar is, etc. You notice that the Goliath bouncers every even hour, 2 come down the stairs, replace the 2 at the elevators, who replace the 2 at the main entrance, who then collect the money cages from the tables then bring them upstairs...

Angel: You are eating at the bar and down 25gp from ordering & tipping big. You can see the stairs going up/down, and no one except the bounces every couple hours use the up stairs, but the serving girls are constantly going up/down the down stairs busing tables and bringing food/drinks. Sometimes there's as few as 1 girl at the bar near the stairs, but usually 3-4 as they take chat & take breaks from working the floor. The waitress you chat up is new. She tells you that Mr. Mui hired a lot of extra staff because of the car give-a-way promotion, concluding tomorrow night. You just spent the last couple hours with hottie after hottie flirting with you and you are feeling very happy and good...

Telgarth: <Wow, 20+5=25 bluff (disguise) check!> Your starting gp roll is a '2', so you have 100gp + the 100gp Giles gave you. You notice the cameras are watching every angle of the tables, entrances, and stairs, but you do find plenty of blind spots near the walls, bathrooms etc. You see the craps dealers hae wooden rakes for the table, but you know you can't use them more than once each since they're pretty thin. You don't see much other wood, except for the building walls themselves. After a big meal, you start playing the low stakes games and are on a roll and feeling great! You are up 200gp and have 2 "Golden Keys".

...After these 3 hours, Blade & Ashe see each other and are ready to reconoiter, and you both see that Ember, Angel, and Telgarth have completely lost track of time and are really enjoying themselves...

Ashe, Blade... What do you want to do next?

forgot Angel's sports betting. You are down 20gp early, but didn't play much after that.

I will cash out and head to the restaurant and get something to eat. I will not get any alcohol instead I will drink mineral water.

Out of the tables I have seen how many golden keys have been given away?

What sort of bodyguards does Mr. Mui have when walking the floor?

About 4/5 of the players have at least a couple Golden Keys. Blade is one of the few that has none. A few have as many as 12-15, but most are in the 4-5 range. They are giving away a car every hour tomorrow from midnight to dawn tomorrow and you need a key for a chance to win.

Zero, but often has his lady friend with him. He hasn't been seen tonight.

As soon as possible cash out $350; takes a walk through the casino talking to other players gauging how often they play; how many regulars are in the facilities; if all of the service staff is new; as Mr Mui walks the floor often, ask the regulars how often he isn't present.

'Jamison' isolates a weapon source or two. Looks like they will be scarce. The dealer rakes don't count.

Got it! It finally worked & they look great! Hey, I went to Maptools online and opened a bunch of token images, but the edit mode only let me see a small sample of choices. ...In otherwords, I am not very computer literate, and a couple hours with Ken tutoring me does not make me a 'Ken' on the computer. I have the story down, but expect some technical difficulties to start...

I positioned the PCs as best you all described, now I just have to add the NPC tokens, and then add it to the thread. Working on that later today.

To post an image:
Press the "Host an image" button

A dialog will appear, press the Browse button to select your image.

Then press the "Host it" button.

The dialog box will change and you will see three "Copy" buttons.

Press the top one to copy the Thumbnail URL, then press Ctrl-v to past the image to the post.


Here's an image I found for Mickey's character if it were a male.

What does show up?

Are you sure you're pressing the "Host an image" button?

If you're pressing the right button then it is probably a browser setting that needs to be changed.

Do you have a secondary browser like Safari, Firefox, or Google Chrome?

Sorry for the technical difficulties everyone, especially Ken, who has to spend time helping me figure out what to do next! Smile

Until then, Stu's PC can get out of the car (3 hours after everyone else) or ask Giles, everyone's Watcher, any one-on-one questions, or hang out and/or sleep in the car, and it's Blade's turn. You see Ashe headed to the bar to order some food...

After I'm up $50 I will cash in my winnings. As I'm walking out to leave I'll throw the dealer and $10 tip and tell him, "My name is Brooks, but you can call me Blade." Then I'll walk out of the Casino towards our car, stealthing to lose anyone that might follow.

Got it. Blade rolls a (7+11=18 stealth) and (13+10=23 perception) and are pretty sure you made it back to the car unfollowed. You make it back and Giles is awake and (Kenedy? -Stu's PC) is asleep. You can ask Giles any one-on-one questions you may have wanted to ask, but in a crowded car never seemed like the right time... How long do you wait for the others to come out? Do you do anything in the meantime?
