(2112) Eternal Court

    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.
    Towards the center of the room, a table was placed and roped off that was decorated in similar black and gold runners. Upon it was a model ship, roughly two and a half feet long with two sets of oars on each side- a Bireme.
    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.

    Mable rushed out to get to court, forgetting her earrings. Tonight she had on her Gray Riding Coat and black pencil pants.

    She slipped into the building, showed she had no weapons and rushed to the stairs. At the top of the stairs she did a silent blessing for protection of all who attended the court. She added a thank you for the opportunity she had been given to be in such an interesting domain.

    She descended the stairs waiting for the beasts to flow over her. While she could feel some in the background none were in the room yet. Spying the model ship, she walked over and examined the beautiful craftmanship. Here anyone entering will find her examining the ship with rapt attention.

    Quinn gave a few things to the unmentionables closet, before descending the stairs into the belly of the Nox. Where the real Danse was held. There was an air of resoluteness about the Shadow this evening. Her heels made their signature clack clack clack against the perfectly polished floors. Punctuating every step she took as she steeled her nerves as the beast either wanted to fight or flee everything milling around in the place. Quinn was not moved by the mewling of her mystically chained beast.

    Her hair was carefully swept up in a tight french twist. Her hair smooth and perfect, as was her makeup. A bit more makeup than she'd normally wear due to not being blushed. One had to take precautions. She wore long slender diamond earrings that fell to her shoulders. Her dress was a bit much for informal court maybe, but in Quinn's mind it was Christmas. Quinn had nothing but fond memories of this time of year. Her former coterie had always made a big deal around this time of year. So she dressed up and enjoyed the merriment that was only in her own heart.

    She saw Mable checking out the Bireme and smiled slightly. It was a lovely piece. Milton had done a good job on it. She hung back a bit in case she wanted a moment to simply enjoy.

    The Nosferatu wore a dress in the Florentine Code for her Clan - this one designer in a mermaid cut. It was a one shoulder dress, the left shoulder was intricate in design. A silk dupioni scarf in black was gracefully draped over the left side of her neck, pinned with a spider pin of precious gemstones of brown and green. Her long brown hair was ironed stick straight, a few tendrils in front of her face and the rest brushed into a half - up hairstyle.
    Her ghoul, Liam, attends her by trailing a few feet behind the Nosferatu. He wore a black suit with a white dress shirt of fine qaulity. He did hold a small black leather pocket book, no doubt for his regnant.

    She nodded to Priscus Durant, the appropriate measure of respect for a fellow Priscus. Dark brown eyes regard Mable and nod to the Heirophant, although a bit less than the one afforded to the Priscus. Jennifer moved with purpose towards Priscus Durant, her mannerism that of a refined lady.

    Connor arrived on scene dressed slightly more ostentatiously than usual. He wore a green suit and vest with a black shirt underneath and a black and green paisley tie-. Holding his tie in place was a black, emerald studded clip. On his lapel he wore a boutonničre of alstroemeria and baby's breath.

    He left his knife at the coat check before heading down the stairs to Elysium proper. Already, the press of a stronger beast urged the Nosferatu to turn tail and leave, but a moment's pause on the stairs was all it took to reaffirm himself of his right to be here. The Cockscombe pushed forward down the stairs, eyeing the current inhabitants of note before pushing headlong into the fold.

    To Jennifer, he offered a bow of his head and shoulders, a display fitting her status as not only his Priscus, but as a Lady of the First Estate "Lady Notary, I hope your evening is going well." The Haunt spoke, the tenor of his voice clear and lightly accented.

    Quinn was another story. He turned to greet her and stopped in his tracks for only an instant. After the briefest of pauses he took a few steps toward her and offered her a bow of the head, but said nothing. For once the Whip of Haunts was speechless.

    Without another delay he turned to Mable, offering her a nod of his head; acknowledgement of her title within the Crone. "Hierophant, it's lovely to see you again. Impressing everyone with your sense of style, as always. I hope your night is going well."

    The steps down to Elysium became a little bit easier to descend with each time. Or at least, that was what Conner thought. And he was happy to entertain that thought if it meant doing what a Shadow was meant to do...

    Mingle and learn...

    Conner is dressed down compared to last Court's finery: Sunday best would be the most accurate way of putting it. Though the Lancea blue and his signet ring would be immediately recognizable from some of his other Court appearances. He offers gestures of respect to those he sees; Priscus Hazelton and Priscus Durant given their dues, as well as a nod of acknowledgement towards Mable. How strange to think he'd be so chummy with a Circle Witch? Sacramento continued to surprise the young Shadow. O'Brien gets his own nod similar to Mable's in acknowledgement of his Clan role.

    He sees Priscus Hazelton approaching his own Priscus and decides to hold back, content to let Quinn signal him in if the conversation wasn't meant to be between the two leaders. Though he does eye the Bireme crew to see if an opening approaches. ​Allies of all stripes so far...

    All the beasts entering were cloaked. She really needed to practice what Dirt Nap had taught her.

    Mable gave a deep nod of respect to Quinn and Jennifer. Connor and then Conner arrived. She gave a less deep nod to each of the gentlemen. They both held positions either in clan or covenant and she respected them and their positions. After all, they respected her as well as Gangrel Whip and Crone Hierophant.

    Connor approached her, "Good evening, and thank you, it's so sweet of you to think I have any style." She gave a lilting laugh at her own expense. "And you look wonderful, I love paisley ties and that one is deliciously gorgeous." She pressed her lips together for a very brief moment, she hadn't meant to say that last part out loud.

    Changing the subject..."My night is going great, how is yours going?"

    side thread?

    Goes by Jack.

    Educated, scholarly, lawyer, scientist.
    Jack's outward demeanor and tone are a baseline of respectful and calculated.

    He actively debates, persuades, negotiates and even at time tries to intimidate, as core skills of any lawyer worth his salt.

    Jacque made his way into court proper, wearing a black, single-breasted tuxedo vest over a pristine white dress shirt. His wrists were accented with cabochon amethyst cufflinks and his Rolex. He also wore a tie bar adorned with amethyst trimmed with gold. It was a quieter night so far... most likely individuals decompressing from the stuffiness of formals. The outfits were magnificent though and the Kindred didn't fail to impress.

    He took a moment to steel his beast, pulling tight the leash despite the presence of only one other it could feel. She seemed engaged in other conversation so it made the feelings subside even more.

    He nodded first to Hazelton, "Lady Notary Hazelton," followed by a nod to Quinn, "Priscus Durant." Seeing no new faces in the Domain he made his way over to the Bireme. His legs planted ever-so-close to the rope barriers and he leaned forward to take a closer look at the details.

    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 of Court.

    But what made this one more interesting than the others, was the Savage. Would the girl come back and attempt to gain Acknowledgement? Or had she fled?

    Time to find out.

    The Italian wore an expensive black pant suit, but no shirt beneath. This showed the presence of ink on her chest and stomach. A single button, and double-sided tape made sure there wouldn’t be a problem. Not that she was particularly worried.

    Cain was at her side, all one hundred and twenty-five pounds of muscle and disdain. He hadn’t made an appearance at Court for a bit, so she figured why not. He was a good boy after all.

    Walking in, she pauses in her usual spot to look over the room and those gathered. Her Beast roared in anger at the weakness present, but she wouldn’t give in to that.

    Nods were offered to the priscus, a deeper one to Jennifer Hazelton and a deeper one to Jacque .

    For now, she remains. Observing the room, seeing if there would be any excitement this evening.

    Quinn gave Priscus Hazelton a nod that befit her station, and smiled slightly at her approach. Making sure she was confident in her welcome if she chose to continue her current trajectory. She admired her dress, and carefully arranged silks with a keen eye for the details.

    Quinn noted Mr. Obrien's mute state with a glance, and nothing more. Closed mouths don't get fed, as they say.

    The next face to wander into court made Quinn smile. She gave him a little tilt of head to let him know she'd seen him. Conner Wells looked well, and that was always a welcome sight.

    To Mable Quinn nodded back, acknowledging the Whip of Clan Gangrel. Not as deep a nod as she gave to a Priscus perhaps, but it was noted nonetheless.

    When the Seneschal entered, Quinn swept into a deep curtsy, holding the show of respect for long enough for to be noted. "Good evening, Seneschal Jack." She spoke in a gentle tone. She felt the quiet of court tonight.

    And then the Prince entered, and another curtsy, though this one was the deepest and longest of the evening.

    She folded her hands, and simply watched court, her gaze occasionally straying to the entrance. As if she was watching for someone's arrival.
