    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.

    Connor enters Elysium, making sure that he looks prim and proper in his black suit with a green shirt. Holding his tie down is an emerald studded tie clip, with agate inlaid silver cuff links at his wrists.

    He stops at the coat check, turning his pistol and knife in, before moving into the court proper and scanning the faceless crowd for anyone that seems interesting.

    Another night in Sacramento, and before she knew it, it was time to make an appearance at Court. Wei Lin stopped in the Elysium without much trouble, armed only with their wits as usual. And their style, wearing a simple black dress, accented with a neck-breakingly high heels (that required an actual training to walk in), elegant hairstyle and a colorful clutch.

    There was a calm smile on their blood red lips, the Succubus much more comfortable than her first time here, as she surveyed the room. There was little of interest, except perhaps for an unfamiliar Kindred.

    Handsome and stylish, it was a good look on him, and as Wei Lin stepped closer her Beast was as calm as it could be, suggesting a man was Masked. She was all but ready to start a conversation, as an unpleasant shiver went through her, almost making her look back to check if there was somebody there. Instead, she stopped in her tracks, trying to gauge the danger. It is Elysium, who would dare, unless... A Haunt? Urgh.

    Normally, Wei Lin would have simply walked away, but there was an annoying little voice suspiciously sounding like Dirt Nap reminding her that she must do exactly the opposite of comfortable. And so, the final few steps towards the man were made, and Daeva extended a hand towards him.

    "Hello. Don't think we've met. I am Wei Lin, new in town."

    Jennifer arrived, wearing a formal black gown that exposed her right shoulder. The dress was tailored to cover her left shoulder. An elaborate green silk dupion scarf was tied elaborately over the left side of her neck.

    A brown gemstone spider held a bloom of blue convolvulus.
    She strode in with confidence, her Beast cloaked. Dark brown eyes surveyed the room. She gave Whip of the family a nod befitting his new station. She glanced at the newcomer.

    She moved to the conversation distance to Connor and the woman. Paused with a glance to Connor, for introduction.

    Her ghoul, a gentleman dressed in a black suit with a white dress shirt, with dark neatly groomed hair, followed behind. After a moment, he moved to stand unobtrusively.

    The night is young, and formal Court has arrived. Conner hopes it will be less...eventful than the last few.

    The Shadow checks in his coat and weapons and begins to descend the steps into Elyisum proper. His inner predator weaseling in its usual Run! Flee! Hide! response as it recognizes other Kindred have arrived. Easy...focus on what these people are, not what they aren't yet. Because yes, even though they were cursed and ferocious, Conner really did believe that they were indeed people.

    Conner takes note of the monsters already assembled. O'Brien he knew as well as Priscus Hazelton, but the third he only vaguely remembered from last informal Court.
    She'd been talking with Dirt Nap about joining the Ordo. The Beast sneers like a cornered wolf, and Conner absently twists his Lancea logo ring on his left hand. He makes sure to give Priscus Hazelton a bow of respect, and less pronounced nods to Wei Lin and O'Brien, though O'Brien's is somewhat more friendly.

    He walks in and stays at a distance from the trio, leaving introductions open but not assumed.
    I think I may be getting the hang of this.

    The haunt feels Wei Lin approaching before he sees her. He turns from the faceless crowd as the Succubus approaches, all the while his beast begging him to pounce; to rip the woman open and drink deep of the sweet ichor that gave the Kindred life. His fist clenches slightly as his beast is silenced for the moment.

    If she is in fact Daeva, she would fit the stereotype exactly. He stares silently as the beauty continues to approach, emerald eyes scanning the woman as the click of her heels break the relative silence of the room. He notices as she stops in her tracks and a wry smirk, one that would make it seem as if he's used to this reaction; a smirk that screams amusement.

    Then she carries on, and the smirk fades back to his usual blank expression; studious, cold, calculating. She extends a hand and introduces herself as Connor sees Jennifer enter behind the Succubus. "Miss Wei Lin," he starts, his accent present, but light, "it's a pleasure." He takes the woman's hand and shakes it. "I am Mr. Connor O'Brien, Member of the First Estate and Whip of Nosferatu."

    Jennifer stops silently, staring at the haunt expectantly and, after a bow to the Priscus, he obliges. "Miss Wei Lin," he says, not only for etiquette's sake, but also so Jennifer can hear her name, "May I introduce the Lady Notary Jennifer Hazelton, Priscus of Nosferatu." A pause follows as Connor notices the nod from Mr. Wells. "And this is Mr. Conner Wells, Head of the Lancea Sanctum of Sacramento. Pastor Wells, this is Miss Wei Lin."

    His attention then goes back to the newcomer. "What brings you to Sacramento, Miss Wei Lin." His eyes lock on those of the Succubus, unblinking.

    Wei Lin had not missed the smirk on the man, her eyes narrowing in annoyance. She had to remind herself again, Be civil. Don't fall to his level. You're better than this and he will eat this smirk when I shove it into his throat. Kill them with kindness.

    The handshake was blissfully brief, and the Succubus fought the urge to wipe her hands with something after. Instead, she made notice of the title, taking a subtle exhale of relief. First Estate were notoriously formal if anything else - no danger of uncivilized snarling here.

    New faces approached, and now it was even harder to keep still, all but surrounded by the Haunts. Her Beast surged, fighting to break free and break something, someone, but there was no allowance for that in Elysium, and with some effort Wei Lin managed a thin smile.

    She hid any visible wariness in her expression with a curtsy aimed mostly at Jennifer. "It's a pleasure to meet you all, Priscus Hazelton, Mister O'Brien, Pastor Wells."

    A curious glance to Wells was more for his Covenant allegiance than the man itself. Wei Lin never interacted much with Lancea Sanctum, as they preferred to keep their holy secrets in house, whatever they were. Judging from religious fanatics anywhere else, it was better to steer clear. Wiser, certainly. Not that the Succubus was often wise.

    "Oh. Mostly a change of scenery. There was another matter, but it... did not work out as I expected." A shy glance away. A smirk covered with a hand.

    She had to remember Dirt Nap's desire to keep her own allegiance a secret.

    Mable entered the court. She stood at the top of the stairs and gave a short blessing over the evening. She was wearing a white knit dress and knee high boots. her hair was pulled into a loose bun.

    Coming down the stairs she paused as beasts already in the room washed over her. She give Jennifer a deep head bow.

    She walks over to Jennifer and her small group, she waiting until there was a lull in the conversation. "Good evening, Priscus Hazelton, you look amazing. I hope I'm not interrupting" To Connor O. "Good evening Mr. OBrien." To Wei, "Good Evening, I'm Mable Wood, Clan Gangrel Whip, Heirophant of the Circle of the Crone."

    A few more kindred separate themselves from the masses. The first was an older gentleman with white hair, styled in a well groomed fashion from the 40's. Dark grey expensive suit with amythyst cuff links and a matching tie bar were his accessories. The tie pattern was grey, silver and purple interlocking chains, well made. He gave a respectful nod to the Nosferatu priscus and slightly lesser to the nosferatu whip. A nod to Conner, Mable and then Wei Lin. Connor has spoken with him about Pope before.
    Two other men seem to follow the older kindred, the same nods to the same angle, paying respect to the others in the same way.
    Conner saw Vincenzo.

    He moved over to the second gentleman. The second gentleman was BP 4. He has a buzzed scalp and a face marked with scars from life. He wears a brown suit with a purple pocket corner, silver pin on his lapel in the insignia of the Lancea Sanctum.
    " Good day. I believe you might be from my Family, sir."
    " Indeed I am. We have met a few times before. I am Mr. Vincenzo of the ventrue."
    The two men shake hands. "I'll be in town more than two evenings, so I must make my respects. How is your evening?" Mr. Vincenzo inquired.

    Both men had formidable beasts, BP 4.

    " Thank you, Whip O'Brien. Quite well done.

    Wei Lin, is that a surname? I've hear Lin as part of a first name in some cultures.
    Yet I did not hear you offer a surname."
    . Polite smile to the newcomer. Jennifer's voice is a Curse, it's supernaturally creepy. Tonight, it's a serpent like quality. Jennifer gave a small smile to Mable.
    " Madame Wood, good to see you. Thank you. You are too kind.

    You look a dream."

    "Does something amuse you?" Jennifer's voice inquiring of Wei Lin.
