The city is normally a lively place. All glitz, glamour, endless money, and unending entertainment on tap.
Or so they tell the tourists.
That's not where the night finds you.
You find yourself in the dirt mall part of town. The casinos that have been there for decades, and seem like they haven't been remodeled since they opened.
There are no beautiful people here. You find only drifters, vagrants, beggars, and people of the night, out for whatever they can scourge together from either the streets or any hapless visitors.
And yet, for whatever reason, this is where you were told to go. A worn down building off the beaten path of the beaten path
. You'd never know it was a casino if not for the very particular directions.
Once the creaky door opens inward, the exterior isn't much different from your expectations. A narrow room that seems to be a few hundred feet in perimeter, lined with beat up slot machines, dusty dealer tables, and a single occupied roulette table, at which a bored older attendant and a scruffy senior are watching the wheel spin. Judging by the amount of chips on the table, he's not doing too badly.
Neither strikes you as the type familiar with the whereabouts of the local Consilium, but they're the only lead you have.
Any attempt to call back the phone number that gave you the address just results in a generic voice mail message.
