Vallaki - Slums - The Prancing Nymph Gentleman's Club
« on: September 17, 2008, 02:24:22 AM »
Word begins spreading throughout various cliques around Vallaki about the new Casino recently opened, "The Prancing Nymph".  The Romulich family's brand new establishment is met with mixed views of excitement, thrills, and respect.  As first-time gamers and rich thrill-seekers take their leave, they return to their associates and friends with stories of their fun experience.

A woman wearing a purple cloak and a hat, has been seen going out pretty annoyed from the club. Nevertheless whoever asked her about it, had no reply.

The would be fencing master Umpton has been in there for days... winning and losing in turns.

When asked why doesn't he leave while he still has some money he grins, looks to the stairs heading upstairs and says "Monsieur, there ARE compensations"

And Otake, Wulfgang Eberhardt, Aesin, Humiko, Bonereaver, Anthrania + whatever concept I am playing with...

A man in purple have been seen walking out of the Prancing nymph with a big wincing face, seemingly his cloak got burnt by something.

The well known courtesan, Madison O'Reilly, is seen frequenting the club, occasionally having a drink, but never gambling. She mostly seems to observe, and interact kindly with the other customers, but notably, doesn't seem to be looking for any new clients of her own.

Revendall took a step inside the installment, smiled and thought it was a fine installment. And clearly far from a hive ward bar he thought, seemingly the Vallaki slums was a bit more decent then the hive back home....a bit.

Ramika is seen in the Nymph more and more, often seen speaking with the barmaids, other members of the staff, and drinking heavily while playing the slots. Despite the enjoyable activities, she looks increasingly somber and is seen spending more money than most who know her would expect her to.

The other night a thin man, perhaps of fey blood and wearing a mix of dark chain and hardened leather plates entered the prancing Nymph. His helm covered his features, but something upset the bouncer enough to resort to violence. It was over in a blink, with the dark clad man diving out the door, holding his wounded shoulder, severely bashed by the bouncers maul.

Word spreads of a show of fashion...

Fashion?

Yes! Ladies in beautiful gowns, men in high quality suits.  Velvets, silks, wools and linens. The date of the show is to be on the sixth of the month. A few of the Nymph's workers have been seen around town sporting some of these highly fashionable gowns, complete with cloaks of exquisite materials and gloves to match. 

The rumors are strung with news that these clothes are to be highly under priced,  making it possible for women of all classes to be able to afford a stunning new look.  Men desiring new, fashionably designed suits will have an opportunity to bid on sets of clothes as well. 

There will be something for everyone!

Since Revendall found the place he been tossing coin around him, gambling away hundreds of coin and giving more away as tips. If one is to find the middle aged man and his bald head one should look in the Nymph where he grown rather attached. He even sometimes sit there all alone, sipping something and even falling asleep in the chairs by the fire.

*As morning shines over the bleak skies of Barovia, word is out on the street about the closure of the Prancing Nymph. Locals scream about seeing a fey running out covered in blood. Some of those present speak of the ghastly murders there in which most of the people inside the Nymph had their skulls bashed in. Some mention that one of the Romulichs is dead, but no one knows which. Vallaki Garda have quickly closed the scene and are known to be interrogating an outlander witness.*

*A horrible scream as if a thousand men has died is heard as the news comes to Revendall, his favorite nest of ale and gamble is getting closed. The semi old man will never be the same again*

Rumor has it that a young waitress was recently hired at the Nymph.

A rich weapons-merchant from Immol, Domn Nicu Tesla has been spending a lot of time on the second floor dance hall of the Prancing Nymph. As the tuiska and wine flows, so does the secrets of his trade.

A local guard seems to have entered the Nymph and spoke with the Waitress Anna in the kitchen. What was spoken however, is not known, allowing the rumor mill to do their work.

The reknowned gambling den and womanizers tavern has come under scruteny of the local Garda after one of the 'dancers' went amiss, the Garda turning out in force laying pressure upon the local patrons as they locked down the Nymph to ask some....''Questions''...

Fliers begin to circulate, starting at the doors of the Prancing Nymph and flowing to every District in Vallaki. A delivery man carries a bag filled with handwritten parchment through the city placing the curious notices up on boards and into hands of those he passes. Up and coming at the fine Romulich owned establishment is a Card Night. The date of this anticipated event is left blank, leaving those who read about it teased towards thoughts of fun and riches.

After over a year long absence from the Prancing Nymph, the young, well known Giogoto Tarja is seen returning to the establishment.  She speaks briefly with Ylenia Romulich in her office before getting back to work.  She seems eager to busy herself with serving customers as well as training a new employee;  the sultry Serafim is a young Barovian native who many of the men seem to take a great interest in.  Both women can be seen talking business, sharing ideas on how to improve the club.  There is talk about the possibility of an auction though nothing seems to beset in stone just quite yet.

In the dead of the night the young dancer Serafim can be seen leaving the Nymph to investigate a fire just outside of the building. Finding rebel writings and a burning effigy of the Count she attempts to run back inside when a known Gundarakite traps her in the street. She proceeds to run off, taking an arrow to the back and leaving a trail of blood as she runs away.

A traveler was seen asking questions recently. The man spoke with a thick accent and inquired about a recently deceased bouncer of the casino. At the end of the night that stranger left and has not returned.

Patrons and workers of the Nymph are heard whispering quietly amongst each other.  Apparently it has been some days since the manager of the Prancing Nymph, Tarja, has been to the establishment.  A few of the employees believe that she's on a short break, having overworked herself to some extent.  Others fear that the Prancing Nymph's involvement with Gundarakite rebel's may be to blame for her absence.

After a lengthy hiatus the half Vistani manager of the Prancing Nymph, Tarja, has been seen returning to work.  She is seen at the club for a few hours each day, writing up flyers, taking inventory, and choreographing new routines for a batch of new dancers the club is looking to hire.  Things at the casino seem to be calm, quiet and slow, but numerous patrons have begun whispering, rumors spreading that the once lead dancer of the Prancing Nymph will once again be taking center stage in the coming weeks.

After a lengthy period of slow sales, the Prancing Nymph Gentleman's Club seems to be back in full swing.  The patron's speak of a new waitress and soon to be dancer who was hired, her beautiful smile and positive outlook drawing in numerous customers and record sales on just her first night of work.  It's said that a grand event is to be hosted once the young girl has been trained, to showcase both her talent and beauty.

The Prancing Nymph appears deserted save for the confused customer who would enter in occasionally in to see the building abandoned for the most part.  Rumors spread through the streets of Vallaki, gossipers speaking of a raid which was lead by the guard.  Could it be, the Romulich brothers wanted by the guard?  Some speak of dark deeds coming to light thanks to a lengthy investigation of the guards.  Others say that the Captain has a personal vendetta with the family and has been out to get them for ages.  Whatever the case may be, customers can be seen passing by the building with longing expressions, wishing to have a place to spend their nights and their coin as well.

Patron's of the Prancing Nymph whisper amongst themselves of the resignation of the long time manager and lead dancer of the club, Tarja.  Most hardly question her reason for leaving, and those oblivious to the raid which occurred earlier in the week are quickly brought up to speed.  The following note is left with Angelika just minutes before the once happy and smiling Giogoto is seen leaving the building with a somber expression.
