    The Nox Populi Nightclub.



    In the heart of downtown Sacramento there is a place of intrigue, excitement and entertainment. The modern flare of this venue is host to exclusive parties. The seduction of this establishment may take you away as you drink, dance and socialize. There are private services available upon request. The best DJ’s in town are in line to play a wide variety of music. Some of you may dine…as long as you have your VIP pass.

    It’s autumn in Sacramento. A chill is in the air. Smoke from the fires make the air outside heavy. The air in the Nox is fresh and clean. The Nox nightclub's upstairs section fills with college students celebrating life and youth. Excitement and lust fill their hearts and minds. Most of all is their exuberance and joy that surrounds their young growing minds and bodies. They spread this joy to all, including those who dance the slow Danse of the eternal undead.

    The Kindred are discreetly met at the door and led to the back of the club where they may use the stairs or take the elevator to the exclusive meeting rooms. The space downstairs is decorated in dark, rich woods and expensive furniture. There's a coat room that will also hold one's 'unmentionables'; namely, weapons, at the foot of the stairs. There are also private areas, dark, and furnished with soft couches, as well as meeting rooms with conference tables and chairs, and an area with several televisions.

    The Court area is decorated with long black and red silken drapes cascading from floor to ceiling. Drapes hang in elegant bunches and gathered into valances across door frames and between supporting pillars; the lighting is intentionally low, and even with the gentle pulse of music from above, the place has the feel of a sepulchre.

    The common area circles the Court proper, and it becomes apparent that this is not a place used just for a single evening. Small symbols note areas for Kindred only that branch off of the Commons, which will be necessary once those Kine privileged enough to see behind the Masquerade filter in: ghouls, herd members, or even devotees.

    It is expected that all Kindred will check in their weapons into the coatroom. Please be sure to do so unless you have permission to carry one.

    Another evening; another Danse. For some it will their first, for some it shall be their last. After all, this is the Prince's Elysium, and subject to the Laws of the Domain.

    Eternal Court is open once more...

    Please remember that Predator's Taint is in effect and role-play is expected, or rolls will be asked for!


    This is a great place to get

    Mable waited in court. She smelled Faintly like smoke from working near the fires and the heavy smoke which hung in the air.

    She was wearing a simple black dress and heels. Her hair was tied back in a low ponytail. She hoped for a quiet night.

    Seth Kind strode in at last. He'd been waiting on a nearby rooftop, tossing knives to kill time, deciding to be punctual for once in his life.

    His outfit was entirely simple, a black suit and red tie. But carried with him is a duffel bag of throwing knives, spare clothes, and lockpicks- not for violent ends- but on hand in case Mable actually wanted him to stress-test their security.

    Emphasis on stress, as his slinking form stood out in the open Court. "Keeper." A nod of the head, grinning.

    "Just so you know, I brought my supplies with me- I'm not sure if you'd like a live test of your defenses of course. But should you wish for details after the fact... Well, I am around." A pause for a response, before finding a wall to wait against until more came into the Court.

    Hopefully being early would present more opportunities.

    Now and then, Lenora got tired of suits.

    Every once and a while the mood struck the prudent Lord to dawn something more... defining.

    Thus, tonight the Priscus of Clan Ventrue strode to the depths of Elysium in an elegant white cocktail dress matched with cream pumps. Her other embellishments were minimal, consisting of a simple pair of gold disc earrings, and a gold necklace with a bee pendant. Otherwise, the Lord carried nothing save a white clutch, possessing as it was a few business cards should the need to share details with new residents - or those rather unknown to her - become necessary. Her coat had already been checked in.

    The bottom step was met with the instinctual terror of her Beast as Lenora bore witness to two Kindred of greater potency, but she quelled it, it's passing noted with the slight tightening of her jaw and a light lift of her bare shoulders.

    Once composed, the woman who led the Clan of Kings finally moved forward offering Seth and Mable a cordial smile.

    "Good evening, Keeper Wood," she said, dipping her head in respect. Then a slight turn to the Carthian. To him, a nod was offered, though it lacked the reverence she had offered the court officer. Nonetheless, it was an acknowledgement. "Mr. Kind."

    Lyssa Wolfe. Ghoul

    Curse

    Past her Albinism, Alice is naught but a doll, beautiful in her impossible perfection. Taking on a inescapable sheen of artifice, both movements and manner seem, hollow and fake. She's nothing but a marionette, limbs jerking and twisting as if pulled by invisible strings.

    Marring her unnatural beauty are her eyes, or the lack of them, vacant pits of visceral horror.

    Alice comes to the Nox.

    It is a journey she had taken for nights upon nights, though less in those recently passed. It was a habit she did not wish to keep, she need to have a presence in Elyssia. Now that she was newly returned and not, considered old and entrenched.

    She arrives, stilettos, dark jeans, and a peplum leather biker jacket, in white. SHe is the Wraith, doll. Nosferatu and not ashamed. Let them stare at her, and hesitate. Wonder, and fear.

    Vivian once told her she didn't look normal or human in white, and Alice knew and accepted that she neither.

    She she descends the stairs, she takes that moment of the rushing of water, the writhing of the Wraith to adjust. To center. To take of the amethyst sunglasses, pocketing them. Let the kindred see, if they the strength.

    Once the Wraith is but a whisper of teeth gnashing upon her vertebrae, she ventures closer, she offers a slight bow. She doesn't know who is here, and it is always better to be safe then sorry.

    "Greetings."

    First thing you will notice about Ale is the abundance of her tattoos. They go from her face all the way to her feet, and not much is left bare. The second thing? Her strong Italian accent.

    Another night, another Court. Which meant making an appearance, seeing who was there, who wasn’t and if there was any new faces. Social. Being social. Maybe the only thing that kept them in control of their Beast at times. Or maybe not, she wasn’t the philosophical type.

    Tonight she was clad in her usual color of black. But was trying something new. In tune with last Court, she wore leather. A short leather skirt with a zipper to expose more leg should she wish it, and a plunging black long-sleeved shirt. It was obvious from the deep plunge that she wore nothing, save for her ever-present tattoos under it. Which stood out against her pale skin.

    Walking into the room, she pauses, as does Cain, to observe the room. And give her Beast the chance to throw a fit, demanding blood and violence. But Ale didn’t feel the need for a lot of violence lately. It was necessary at times, but it wasn’t as appealing as it once was. As she dealt with her Beast, Cain was still, his own eyes focused on the Kindred present.

    A nod of her head was offered to Mable, one to Alice, though Ale knew she couldn’t see it, then one to Lenora. Seth was allotted a gaze, but that was it. He had yet to prove his worth to the Domain in her eyes. She remains at her spot, not close enough to talk with, but there should someone wish to converse.

    Dirt Nap braces himself against the mob of predators and his beast's anger, then he enters, greeting Mable with, "Evening, Ma'am Keeper Wood." He says. "Evening, Mister Kind; Ma'am, Priscus Black; Ma'am." in turn to Seth Kind, Lenora and Alice Hart.

    Dirt Nap nods deeply in a respectful bow towards the Prince without presuming to actually address her in her slightly distanced position of watchful authority.

    "Good evening," Mable says to everyone as they enter. Ale got a curtsy as she arrived.

    To Seth, "Hmm, that would be up to the Reeve. I hope none of the tools are weapons?" She raised her eyebrows. She knew he could hide stuff on him that could be missed by the security people. Would be interesting to see if he did as a check of defenses.

    So cometh the Blind Doll, her Beast mercifully shielded from Lenora's sight.

    Lenora finds herself gazing to the empty sockets, a quiet curiosity seeping over her features. Soon though, the curiosity is replaced by a relatively blank expression as Lenora's mind shifts to some other thought. In particular, the eyeless Nosferatu reminds her of the promise her sire granted her of a certain Hollowness to come, unless she moves to push her blood and Grow as she must.

    Then Lenora realizes she's staring.

    A couple blinks and Lenora's cordial nature seeps back to the surface as a potent Beast fills her own with terror. Reigning the leash, Lenora grants Alessandra a deep bow of respect. It is what the Prince is due. However, Lenora does not approach, for the Laws forbid such action on her own and the Prince had made no move to engage further.

    Then came the quiet horse trainer, his presence noted by Lenora with a respectful nod. "Good evening, Mr. Nap" she says, reciprocating the man's greeting.

    The matter of Mr. Kind and his tools is not touched, for the Keeper is seeing to it, but a peaked eyebrow readily conveys Lenora's own interest in his intentions.

    Always the courteous host- did she find it exhausting? Perhaps an eternity of such acts make it simpler... The Blind One that drew eyes, Dirt Nap, Lenore... And of course the Prince and her Mutt. That the Prince insisted on displaying her Paranoia and Status (justified and earned as it was) only compounded the grating fact that such traits happened to present themselves in the hellhound. The thief didn't have the best disposition towards dogs- borne from his occupation more than anything.

    The thief snapped his attention back to Mable. "They are nearby, if you wish to make the test more authentic- though I did not bring them into Court, no. My cousin likely has enough to worry about as it is." A grin at the reference- and a slightly ambiguous answer on whether or not the thief would ever actually consider such an act without permission. Though it had crossed his mind, the means to hide them without magic.. If only out of habit.

    "Dirt Nap. Always a pleasure." And it was, for such a friendly person. " Kinded Black. Eating well still?" More formal as they were, their presence was welcome

    To the blind one the thief said nothing- he was still unsure of her, and how to approach her. She seemed familiar with many of the older elements... That she had survived this long, given her condition, was likely indicative of something. A hidden Resolve? Something in the Blood?... Both?
