    The Nox Populi is an upscale experience that will take Sacramento nightlife to a whole new level.


    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.

    However the Kindred arrive they are discreetly met and led to the back of the club. 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 brown silken drapes cascading from floor to ceiling. Draped in elegant bunches and gathered into valances across door frames and between supporting pillars; the lighting is intentionally low, but without the pulse of the 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 decorated 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. The furniture setting is familiar now: a set of elegant chairs, all dark wood and red leather, arranged in a circle. The baroque lighting leaves the corners of the Elysium commons in deep shadow.

    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

    Eternal Court is not a singular event. Always open and in constant motion, a compression of the comings and goings of Kindred within Elysium throughout the nights. As such, Eternal Court is also never truly empty; this can include 'faceless masses' of Kindred beneath notice, ghouls, herd members, devotees, or even officials in their offices.

    Lions did not concern themselves with seeking the attentions of cubs. As such, Lenora weaved through the faceless masses of Nox and, later, the inner sanctum that was Elysium.

    The Priscus of the Clan of Kings was dressed in a matter befitting her temperament, returning to her more conservative, subtly fashionable style following the previous month's less than successful move instructed by her sponsor. Donning a black suit, Lenora further ventured into the realm of fashion with a frilled shirt. Her makeup was relatively minimal, save for her eyeshadow and eyeliner, which had been done darker than her usual method in order to more boldly complement her attire.

    Having made her way into Elysium, Lenora observed her surroundings. No Kindred of particular note had arrived. Yet.

    Thus, the Priscus of Clan Ventrue moved to her usual space, situating herself at a table off to the side of the more centralized floor.

    Horatio enters the club, he looks around for a moment before the guide shows up. Making his way down to the court he reflects on last court and hopes this one will be uneventful.

    Coming into the common area, Horatio looks around at the people and not seeing anyone of note before entering court proper.
    Horatio spots Lenora and gives her a slight bow before finding a seat to claim not to far. He adjusts his tie before sitting, noting the darkening of the purple of his tie in the lighting.

    Lenora spared the Mekhet a glance as he entered, her eyes following him briefly as he moved.

    A pause hangs following the man's bow before Lenora dips her head slightly in acknowledgement. He had earned that much and it would be uncouth of the Priscus of Lords to shun him unnecessarily.

    Thereafter, Lenora's eyes turned back to greater Elysium, silently wondering whether anyone else of note would be joining them.

    The Lady Notary strode in with confidence. She was somewhat early for precedence, but she was curious if Mr. Moore would be in attendance. She was dressed per the Florentine code: An A line gown in black and green. A black silk dupioni scarf was wrapped around her neck, completely obscuring it. A pin of fire agate in brown and green emerald in the shape of a spider secured the silk scarf securely in place.
    She spotted the newcomer and tilted her head as she surveyed him.

    "Evening."
    She spoke to the newcomer, her voice a ruined thing. Her words crept like a serpent through dying leaves. She had been about to speak her full introduction when her dark eyes caught another figure off by its own. Why, finally the prime example of another Invictus making proper introductions had presented itself! It seems like it had been too long since Invictus presented one another to avoid embarrassing mistakes.

    "Priscus Black." The Lady gave a nod to the Priscus, her dark eyes watchful. Would the vampire who had a lifetime of education in proper ways offer the proper introductions?

    PRE

    Dirt Nap enters with JC a newcomer and stranger to the court.

    The man with him stands about 5'9" with dark hair and beard. His clothes and shoes are worn with several stains, though they look like they were of higher class at some point in the past.

    They are discreetly met and led to the back of the club; some may recognize the area leading to rear stairs upward. New construction is apparent, as there are now stairs leading downward. The space downstairs is new, and decorated in dark, rich velvet and brocade remaining from the Gothic theme. 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 common area circles the Court proper, and it becomes apparent that this is not decorated for a single evening. Small symbols note areas for Kindred only that branch off of the Commons

    It is just before they enter into this special area, explicitly marked for Kindred only that Dirt Nap makes eye contact with JC and nods slight as if to say, "Remember. Brace yourself."

    Then they come into the inner sanctum.

    Dirt Nap nods respectfully towards Horatio Quilz, Lenora and Jennifer Hazelton, and then realizes that he's going to have to say something out loud, if he wants to help out his cousin.

    "Evening Sir, Ma'am, Priscus Black, Ma'am, Lady Hazelton." Dirt Nap says very softly, nodding again to each in turn. "This here is a cousin I just met the other night, goes by ' JC.'"

    Meeting up on the street, JC let Dirt Nap lead him around the Nox. It was fancy. More fancy than he liked, especially since he didn’t fit in with his current clothes. However, there wasn’t much he could do with that feeling so he let it go for now.

    Dirt Nap showed him past the coat room but had no weapons to surrender. The area with TVs caught his attention for a moment as something that might be useful. His ability to access news was currently limited right now after all. He also took note of the local symbols indicating Kindred private areas, while acknowledging the nod from Dirt Nap. This was where things got dangerous.

    Part of him immediately started to panic when they entered the common area. The closest he could approximate it was it was similar to when you first saw something next to your foot that might be a snake. Only it kept going. Fear, the instinct to jump away from the twist danger about to strike at you. Even being prepared for it probably wouldn’t have been enough if he had been alive. Part of him was thankful not to have to be dealing with the adrenaline, the heart beating out of control, or the reflexes he’d lost. Another part was annoyed at the irrationality of it all. And another part was telling everyone else to shut up and let him listen to what Dirt Nap was saying. The part that felt terror, continued unabated.

    JC took note of the ranks and titles, and forms of address. He still wasn’t entirely sure if he was allowed to talk at this point with being addressed. For now he bowed to the three Kindred and listened patiently for their response.

    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.

    Exiting her office, Cain at her side, the Savage enters Court.

    Pausing, dark eyes look over the room as her Beast roars and rages, wanting the blood and flesh of the weakness it sensed in the room. And as much fun as that would be, Ale pushes it aside, tonight was not the night. Maybe another.

    A nod of respect was offered to Jennifer Hazelton , the Haunt was a Lady of the Invictus after all. Smaller nods offered to the others.

    Tonight, the Italian wore a leather fitted skirt and an open shirt. Most of her tattoos were on display, and her lips were a blood red, dark hair in gentle waves. Moving off to the side, positioning herself to watch the room and be seen, she approaches none. Though the new face with Dirt Nap was interesting. A new Dragon? Or simply someone he found?

    Cain stands in front of her, the presence of the Hell Hound was unnatural, and filled with hate. This was one hundred and twenty pounds of muscle and teeth. Ready at a simple command to tear apart anyone his master decided.

    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.

    Eventually Alice appears, leaving her office, with her ghoul Lyssa just behind her shoulder. The Blind Doll is wearing a petal pink dress, with loose sleeves, and nicely tailored cuffs, and with buttons running from the scooped collar to the slit resting above her knee.

    She pauses before she reaches Elysium proper, feeling the Wraith within writing and thrashing against her bones. Her gums itch. Remembering the cloying taste of blood and ash and rot. She closes her lids over her sockets and wills that terrible hateragefearterror away.

    She opens her empty sockets and strides into Elysium.

    Offering Ale a deep curtsy, first before she finds an appropriate place to wait and see if any would approach.

    Horatio rides the subtle wave of his beast for a moment, the lines blur but he stamps it down or he thinks he does. If he really thinks on it, some of his actions or reactions may have been the beast all along, the line so blurred between the two. Nevertheless it does not have a vulgar reaction for now. A Mekhet once mentioned their beast was more subtle, more quiet, exerting a insidious control over the person becoming their reactions and emotional outbursts. No, now to focus on the scene in front of me.

    Horatio stands up from the seat, letting go of the arm he was gripping as he does.
    He gives a general greeting to the new arrivals. "
    Good evening." Horatio gives the appropriate bows of respect to each in turn. He sees Dirt Nap and gives a nod of recognition before spotting his stray. I do love strays, I'll have to see what this is about later.

    He sits back down as he considers on how to go about his next move. May decide on approaching the Seneschal Hart later for asking about "Right of Tenancy" later on that is, but for now he is content to see where things go for the moment.
