INV ONLY Thirteen Robberies and a Mysterious Murder

Post by Zonky Blong on March 26th 2020, 5:28 pm

Eddie Vex loved Vegas. He loved the way that the city bled with untamed probability and the prospects of millions being lost legally in a matter of moments. He loved it enough to rob the Cresswell Casino - formerly known as Ceasars Palace. He didn't give a shit about the previous owner, or anyone inside. Still, Eddie wasn't a murderer. At least not intentionally. Sometimes his tags caused some issues with the balance of things, and people got hurt. But Eddie did try to save them if they looked near death. Eddie was a villain after all, not a monster.

Eddie put on his costume and stepped into the casino. He started throwing around tags, and people started losing money at an accelerated rate. Thirteen felt the luck energy course into him with the force of a tidal wave. It almost knocked him off his feet, but he stayed standing and grinned. "Hello, everyone! Welcome to the robbery! Place your chips in the bag, and your luck will improve. Don't, and well..." Thirteen threw 5 more tags into the bodyguard pointing his weapon at Eddie. "Nobody wins." Eddie heard the gun fire, but it went wide, bounced off the steel support, and destroyed a display screen. "Well that's gonna hurt the old paycheck, eh?"

Thirteen's bag started filling with casino chips and dollar bills. He loved Vegas.

INV ONLY Re: Thirteen Robberies and a Mysterious Murder

Post by Nate6595 on March 29th 2020, 4:57 am

It was a strange place for Sam to go, but Melody had suggested that he take a vacation. She was after all and she wouldn't be around much to give him further guidance. He, of course, complained about the money and said that it should be going to his family which she quickly dismissed. She offered up to pay for the endeavor and again he tried to go against it, yet...she can be very persuasive.

So, there he was in Las Vegas. Someone once told him it was like a big circus and have previously been a carnie, he was interested in it.  Plus, Mel told him he may actually be able to win some money. He was pretty good at blackjack. Just...if he did, that he'd give her some of his winnings which he quickly agreed to. If he could make money on a vacation, money that he could send to his family...then, well...that was a vacation he was happy to go on.

So, there he was in a casino, it was third day there when...oh. That was far from good. He looked over his shoulder at the ruckus. The strangely dressed man beginning to hold up the place. Was he allowed to be a hero on vacation? He wasn't sure...he liked it and never really considered it work, but...it was his job? Hmmm...

That's when the guns were pulled and all missed their target. Yep. That was sign enough for Sam that he should probably step in. But what to do? He could just walk up to the guy and ask him to stop. He could use his power and try to restrain him or just try and knock him out right away. That didn't seem right though. He should at least give the man a chance. So, he let out a sigh and pushed himself away from the table he was at, a table where he had failed to notice the other gamers and dealers had ducked behind.

In a very casual way Sam raised his hand and waved to Thirteen, as if he had been some old friend. He gave him a chipper smile and slowly approached him, "Hey bud, any chance you want to not do this? Everyone here is just playing, having a good time, trying to win some money. Why not join in? earn some money the fun and legal way? I'll even play a hand with ya, pal!" It was a simple enough offer. "Come on, friend, what do you say we not do any of this, yeah?" Sam, of course, was not in his hero attire and just looked like a young gambler, no one threatening or even carrying some merit of danger. It was just a guy with an offer.

Thirteen looked the man up and down. He wasn't too tall, seemed about... a couple inches shorter than Thirteen? He frowned. This guy didn't look like he was too used to this setup. Thirteen heard him talking, but admittedly didn't really listen. He was busy picking up the golden tokens that had fallen on the floor.

"You know, it's weird." He said, talking to the apparent hero. "Here I am robbing a casino, and it never once occured to me that I should consider what I'm going to do with these chips and tokens." Thirteen bit one. Solid gold. Whoever owned this place had some excellent taste and resources. "I guess the tokens I can melt down and sell..." He suddenly whipped back to the other guy. "I'm sorry, you were saying some-" Thirteen was interrupted by the sound of a gunshot outside. "What the hell?" He asked, sounding genuinely surprised.

Sam frowned a bit. It didn’t really get on his nerves to be ignored, but it was still rude as hell! Ain’t no like that in the carnival business or back home. Who was this man’s mother? He should’ve gotten more stern talking to’s as a kid. Surely he knew that when someone addressed you give them a bit of attention. Yet, like any cliché villain, which did earn some points in Sam’s book, he was caught monologuing. Gosh, that was bothersome.

When the man finally began to address him they were both interrupted, their attention being brought to the source of the gunshot. That was never a good sound. Chances were it wasn’t the cops or the security given that it was too soon for the cops to arrive and the security, well, this man was sure to deal with them at a relatively decent pace. What kind of vacation was this turning out to be? He thought they were supposed to relaxing or…something? Not more work. Not that he minded all that much. Hero work was nice. It was fun. He liked it, but…it would’ve been nice to have some sort of break.

Sam looked back to the man and let out a sigh, “Alright. You’re gonna stay here and I’m gonna check that out. Alright-bye!” And Sam moved to walk past him, as he did so he would attempt to open two portals beneath Thirteen, one at his right leg, one at the left leg, the two connecting portals being in two random sections in the air. He’d try and open a third on his right arm for a good measure, also somewhere in the air somewhere.

Regardless of whether or not it actually worked, Sam would continue forward towards the sound of the gunshot. Someone better not have died or else he’d call Mel and complain to her about her choice of vacation spot. She was probably out on her vacation too…maybe he’d wait until she was back. No! Wait…that defeated the purpose of the angry phone call.

"Oh boy...here we go..."
