    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. 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 Acknowledged

    Mable checked to make sure the court area was clean and secure. She did some paperwork before it was time for others to arrive.

    She was wearing her grey suit tonight. After all it was a simple court.

    When It was time she went out and waited to great the guests.

    Tonight was an affair of small victory for the newest Priscus of the Lords. For tonight, Lenora would be available publicly to the whole of the greater Domain for the first time since attaining her position.

    As such, Lenora elected to take a measured risk and where the very same purple suit she had donned during the last formal court. Also present were the rings and choker she had worn, as well as a simple pair of gold hoop earrings. Makeup was kept light, highlighting her natural beauty while darkening her lips only by a few shades.

    Once her descent was complete, she would afford herself some pause to rein in the terrified nature of her inner Beast in response to the sight of a greater monster than herself. The monster in question was, naturally, the Keeper. Having composed herself, Lenora assumed her familiar, cordial expression and moved forward, granting the Keeper a smile and a brief nod of respect as she did.

    "Good evening, Keeper Wood," she offers, her tone soft and amicable, "I trust your night goes well?"

    Beast roared as a weaker one entered the room. "Good Evening, Ms. Black. My night is well thank you. How are you doing this evening? Anything new going on?" Mable gave a warm greeting.

    "Nothing of particular impact to the greater Domain, no." Lenora answers, "However, I believe it prudent to inform the officers of the Court that I have been selected as the Priscus of Clan Ventrue. As such, should scenarios occur in which one of my title is needed, I implore you to let me know."

    Lenora allows a moment for the reality of her placement as her clan's head to take route. She considered mentioning Thomas and his fall, but decided against it. Now was not the time to chafe against the Crone.

    "Beyond this, my nights continue as they have been," she offers, "I rise, I feed, and, through the bountiful communal hunting grounds Her Majesty has provided, I do both in relative comfort. I am content."

    Then a slight head tilt as Lenora's eyes rest on Mable's warm expression.

    "And you, Keeper Wood?"
    she asked, "Have your nights seen anything new since we last spoke?"

    As one of the few VIP members in the Prince's favor, Derek licks away the bit of dried blood at the corner of his mouth, having enjoyed a fresh feeding. The awkward and insecure looking Mekhet doesn't look like much, but he has money to spend and an intellect to capture the interest of the odd sapiosexual.

    Given the importance of appearances under his new title of Reeve, Derek wears a black suit, tieless with the top button undone revealing a reedy neck and thin frame. As he descends the Stair he straps on his knife holster. Normally he keeps the weapon hidden or obscured, but now he intends to send a message to this Kindred community that the Prince's Office of Security has teeth. Even if those teeth are beared by an unimpressive mouth.

    One can only wonder what Prince Alessandra is thinking naming this man as Moretti's successor.

    He cringes and recoils at the presence of Beasts in attendance, though he emits none of his own. All the more evidence of his weakness and youthful Requiem.

    "Keeper Wood," he greets her with a nod and soft smile before turning to Lenora. "Priscus of Ventrue, if I've heard correctly. Your Clan has chosen well. I hope you are both having a pleasant evening," he conveys respectfully.

    He does not linger, not intending on intruding on a budding conversation unless they choose to invite him to join. Instead he makes himself available to any who have security concerns as he watches as more Kindred join the Danse.

    With a laugh and a blown kiss, Twist left the small group of clubbers and maneuvering through the crowd made her way toward Court. The faintest tickle of other Beasts had roused hers and she figured it was time to head down.

    Dressed simply this eve, she nonetheless knew that the at least half of the small group she left watched her go. Summer was hanging on with everything it had, and she was not upset with the opportunity to enjoy the clothing options it left. Running fingers lightly through her hair to resettle it, she breezed by the weapons check and entered Court. It was early yet, a few worth notice already in attendance. They did not seem to be too deep in serious conversation, so once she had her Beast firmly reigned in (even if blood was always lovely decor), she wandered toward them.

    A respectful nod of greeting to Mable and Derek with a murmured, "Keeper Woods, Reeve," followed by a smile of acknowledgment toward Lenora "Good evening to both of you, I hope i am not intruding."

    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.

    Courts as of late had been quiet, calm, and quite frankly, enjoyable. Was that due to a smaller number of Kindred, or a change in the season? She wasn’t sure, but she was finding it pleasant. Would it last? Mostly certainly not. Court, and Kindred society in general was a mixture of personalities. There would always be clashes.

    The Savage decided to go with a dress for the evening. Seemed like a reasonable selection, and she was trying to add new things into her evenings. Her dress was white, something different for her, and could be considered a sun dress. It hit mid-thigh and was made of flowing, gauzy material. So at least it was comfortable. Though she did like how it showed of her leg tattoos, something she didn’t do often enough.

    Walking into Court, Cain at her side, she pauses. The press of the numerous weak Beasts clashed with her Beast. Its teeth bared, craving the bloodshed of the weak. Shoving it aside, she observed the room. A deep bow of her head was offered to Twist, who looked great in her outfit. A nod was then offered to Mable and Derek.

    For now, she seemed content to remain where she was. Watching.

    Dirt Nap enters wearing a clean pair of nice, black dress jeans, newish and clean dark leather cowboy boots, a new, clean flannel shirt in a nice color that complemented his red hair, which in its turn was mostly controlled and corralled between the effects of hair product and a sharp cowboy hat.

    He pauses a moment to let the waves of emotions spurred by the presence of so many other predators wash over him, allowing him to get the reins of his beast and it’s anger.

    Then he proceeds with studied caution into the Nox in it's splendor and atmosphere, and to the gathering of kindred, the Court.


    He entered looking around without any challenging stares or differing dropping of the eyes either, his demeanor and Beast responding as a predator among predators, not giving or taking offense, well fed and relatively compliant.

    Good evening, Keeper Wood.” Dirt Nap says in respectful greeting.

    He takes off his hat and nods respectfully to the rest of those present, most notably to the officers of the Domain, the Prince most of all.

    Aiden entered Court in simple jeans and a light gray jacket. His black leather ankle boots were worn down and scuffed, but still had a fresh layer of polish. His hair had been secured with a generous application of pomade that gave him a shine, but not a sheen.

    Before he even cleared the stairs the rage came. Aiden's Beast begging for blood and viscera and freedom to terrorize the room. It was indiscriminate, all consuming, and ultimately temporary. The sensation was gone by the time the last step.

    Rather than dive into the socializing, Aiden drifted around the main group. Offering a nod and smile to anyone who met his gaze, but otherwise not engaging. He gave a bow to the Prince, but was careful not to enter her orbit. Instead he perched up off to the side; available to anyone who was interested. No need to bombard the Keeper or his Priscus when they were already so thoroughly engaged.
