Topic: Sport Town - Deck 5

Deck five is restricted access for adults only. Here are a variety of casinos and track clubs for your gambling enjoyment. There are eight saloons and several clubs catering to the individual interests of their clients. Here is also the local Mission Temple. This is used for the relaxation and reinvigoration of tired crews looking to get a little trim to there course after long weeks in the black. Staff are guild trained but available at non-guild rates.

Samuel Arkwright stepped out of the elevator and looked for Phantasm.

The heavy smell of tobacco permeated the air. The bright neon of previous levels was still abundant, but lacked the bright chrome and vibrant colors. The whole environment felt heavier, darker than the retail levels. Lighting was subdued giving the whole deck a sense of perpetual night. There were plenty of people moving about from one establishment to the other. Perhaps it was the security uniform, but the crowds parted before Sam as he walked forward. Most people quickly averted their gaze to other things happen nearby. There was a sense of layered sound with throbbing music in heavy bass combining from the various clubs.

A long lean fellow stood his ground as Sam approached. He tipped his derby towards him. "Something I could help you with Constable?" the man spoke in a heavy Dyton accent.

[OOC: Would you two mind if I brought in Josie Holliday, professional poker player and all around avant garde partier in on this? Mostly just so she can get a feel for the new law in town! (not that she's been here longer than a few months herself - Amanda]

Josie strode Deck Five with the languid pace of a cat surveying their surroundings and looking for something of amusement. Working as a professional poker player left plenty of time for the night life, which happened 24-7 around the deck of endless night.  Her heels hit the deck with a nice slow rhythm. Wearing a dress that was more buckles than it was cloth, a leather jacket and newsboy cap, it was actually a low-key outfit for the poker player.

She brought down her sunglasses, looking over them at the new constable. For some reason, word hadn't gotten around about him yet - but then again she was new herself, recently arrived within the last few months. It was time to get a feel for the new law in town, better sooner rather than later.

"Hello gentlemen," she said with a smile, leaving the sunglasses in place even in the dim light of the deck as she approached them.  "It is after noon right, or did I miss that entirely and just skip ahead to the next day?"

Josie knew what time it was, only because she knew she had a shift to work at the casino in which she would alternately teach poker and then beat people at it.

"Yes", Lieutenant Arkwright said, "I'm looking for Phantasm".

When Josie arrived, he looked at his watch, not that it was a huge amount of use in a 24-7 skyplex. He knew full well that the lack of sun would not only throw one's body clock off, but it could even lead to scurvy in some cases where ships relied too much on protein bars.

"It's still afternoon", he said to her, while he tried to avoid excessive staring at her dress.

The tall fellow seemed oddly more ill at ease with Josie suddenly joining them. "Yes, Ms. Holliday, it's certianly evening now." He seemed to shrink a little under the bowler hat causing long shadows to cover his eyes.

Josie smiled and tilted her head, letting the white blond hair of the wig fall slightly into her face.

"Oh. You two were about to have a private man talk, weren't you?" a sly grin appeared on her lips. "Asking about the Phantasm - well that's a few doors down, that way." 

She motioned to the way the new Lieutenant should walk if he wanted to go there.

"See you there," she said with a smile and then looked to the man with the bowler hat. She reached out a finger and tipped the hat just a  little bit lower on his head so that his eyes were even more covered.  Then she pulled up her sunglasses and looked to the Lieutenant.

"I'll get your name when I see you there. Oh and it's Josie, not Ms. Holliday, unless that's the way you like to play."

Josie smiled slyly and began to make her way to the Phantasm.

The thin man shrank back towards the crowd. His planned tough guy talk was a bit short circuited by Josie's intervention. "What the Lady said Constable. Just that way." He nodded to the security man and rapidly disappeared into the throng texture of humanity.

Re: Sport Town - Deck 5

"Thank you", Sam said and followed Josie towards the club.

OOC I think we are going to change the dialouge a bit to make this happen in thee afternoon so we are all on the same time frame.

Re: Sport Town - Deck 5

OOC: Yeah, it's the afternoon.

Re: Sport Town - Deck 5

OOC: I get that we've agreed it's the afternoon now, but in this scene Sam says it was the evening, so that's why I was confused.

But so long as we're all on the same page now, that's fine.

Re: Sport Town - Deck 5

OOC: Yeah, I know I'd appreciate the three of you editing your posts to say afternoon instead of evening. Deborah's and my characters are running a nightclub, after all, and it will be different there between night and day. Yes the party may well go on longer than just the night, but we'd necessarily use the day time to do other things like admin and sleep. And try-outs. :-)

Re: Sport Town - Deck 5

OOC: Yeah this thread was started before we were corrected that it was afternoon, which is a different feel entirely.  Edited my post accordingly, with edits in bold so people can read. Curse you Plom's for ending my laziness string of just going 'eh, it's one sentence...will edit later...'

OOC: Duly edited.

Re: Sport Town - Deck 5

OOC: Nice, thanks. I imagine the clubbing will begin in the evening and continue through til morning, but we'd use late morning through to late afternoon for less full-on money-making related activities, so I did need to keep it clarified. So... it's about 3pm on Greenleaf Skyplex. Phantasm is probably at the point in the day when we're resting a little and readying for the coming evening's events.

The Marshal got off the elevator on deck 5. This would be the best place to see how security was running, and the fillies here weren't too hard on the eyes either. Langford walked slowly, he wasn't in a rush. After all, he didn't really have anywhere particularly to be.

Of course, that quickly changed when he got a buzz on his cortex.

"Damn," he swore. He lingered a bit, not really in a rush to see who had died this time. Let the stiffs he'd hired do the cleanup first. He looked at his watch and timed his response as he slowly walked to the lift, estimating how much they would be able to get done before he got there.

Alex stepped out of Phantasm ahead of Kris, and looked around the dimly lit 'street' as he did so. Sport Town was crowded and they'd need to be wary of pickpockets as they made their way through.

"That's one thing I miss about being dirtside," he mused, clearly expecting her to ask 'what?'.

She slipped into step with him as they walked.

"What?", she asked.

"Vehicles," he replied. "Sexy, colourful, dangerously fast vehicles," he added, imagining various sports vehicles, wheeled and hover.
