Red Cloud Hotel

Post by The Amazing Tazy Ten » Sat Jan 16, 2010 3:46 am

Desert was basically in all directions. It's strange purple color covered every part of the ground, other than the occasional skeleton or Lizard. The Mysterious Creature walked without end. The sand was almost like buzz-saws to any part of his skin not under the cloak that hid this man's identity. He had been in various fights and was just about to sleep on the sand with the cloak protecting him when he came across a hotel. It looked to almost be in shambles with pieces of wood being randomly strewn around the area, but it looked sturdy. At least from the mysterious person's somewhat sand filled eyes. "Anything to avoid this damnable Death Trap" said the man. He forced the door open and met the voice of an innocent girl...

"Hiiiiiiiii~!"

From behind an wooden desk sat this girl. Quite possibly one of the cutest things any normal human would see. If the man hadn't known she was a succubus, he probably would have proclaimed her a god almost immediately. Her tiny black wings weren't easy to hide, if she was even trying to hide them. Of course the black leather jacket she was wearing are a good way to disguise the fact she has some damn wings poking through them. Under the jacket was the usual unitard that succubus's find so popular these days, blue in color, matching the hairband in her unnaturally pink hair. She was standing on a soapbox, addressing the new guest, so one could easily see the almost knee high boots of pearly white and striped socks.

Maybe the man could not abstain from her spell. He attempted to keep his mind off her and spoke. "One room please" said the man, the ruined cloak blowing in the wind behind him. "Alllllright-y!" responds the girl, then she turns to the back room "Hey, Judoe! We have our first guest!". The back room responds with a more male voice "Coming Lizzie", followed by the sounds of closing books and opened shelves. A man pops out of the room with Dark Orange Hair barely touching the cloak covering most of his person. The cloak was white in color with angel's wings embroidered on the front. Other than the cloak though, the man was pretty thin, and his Beige Eyes showed a thinker's mind. "I was just about to finish tonight's meal. We're horribly understaffed" said Judoe. Lizzie rolled her eyes "I heard the Lightning Ball Spell". "I whispered it!" said Judoe in a somewhat harsh tone "Besides, it's not like we can spare too much other than food and a place to sleep."

The stranger smiled. Then he started to laugh at the two's argument. Judoe shot a glare back at the stranger, "What are you laughing at?". The man noticed the state of the building. Creaking floors, Peeling Purple wallpaper, chipped wood...the place looked like it was hit by a hoard of grade-schoolers and left to rot for 6 years. It was then that the cloak finally flew off him. The stranger had long black hair in a somewhat stylish ponytail. A Brown Tank-top and torn jeans with blood on the left shin. "Name's Qual" said the stranger known as Qual. "And I believe we can help each other out." The two stared at the creature for a few seconds until Lizzie spoke up. "THE Qual?"

Qual was a little shocked to hear the words fly to his ears. THE Qual? So, he's a celebrity now? "Well, I'm not one to brag but...". Judoe cut off Qual's boasting. "Oh, that Minor Leaguer? Yeah, you made a name for yourself in some dimensions, especially the Metropolis of Applegrove, and the Gunjin Circuit. He's no Aiden, Wyborn, or Joker...but-". Lizzie interrupts "No one cares about those old fossils anymore, Judoe." "They're an important part of the history of the Gunjin. You know as well as I do that-" "Well, I don't see them around anymore, so how important are they?" Qual responds "They're probably lurking through dimensions. I don't blame them really, since those in the know generally try to avoid the old vets." Qual starts to walk towards the two hotel owners as he continues. "Hell, I've seen whole planets evacuate from the sight of a Gunjun Veteran..." Silence grips the room once more before Qual speaks again. "Anyway... my deal goes like this: You give me free room and board, and I'll get this hotel fixed and enlarged to a grand building in three days." "THREE WHAT?!" sputtered Judoe, before he composed himself. "....fine. But if you can't do that, you'll have to pay full price. 80 Gold. Deal?" Judoe stuck his hand out to seal the agreement. Qual obliges, "Deal".

There was continuous building, sawing, melting, covering, painting, and crafting as the building quickly increased in size. In the meantime, Qual asked Lizzie and Judoe to employ some Creatures from various dimensions, preferably those that wouldn't mind working for Room and Board. Finally, after 2 and a half days, the building was finished and ready to accept tenants. Now that the sandstorm had died down, the three Innkeepers looked at the building in all it's majesty. Gold covered the large 70 Floor Hotel as various Pixies and Maids were working as bellhops and room service. The rooms were made to be adjustable and the building itself was made to become four times it's size, for easy custimazation. On the lower floors were a Kitchen, an Indoor Pool, A Training Room with settings that would read the user's mind to create simulations, and a Transfer System to transfer any currency into gold (thanks to studying the Virtual Hotel's version of the machine) not to mention the various things Qual put in secretly. Qual was now wearing a Suit with a Blue and Red "A" on the back of the tuxedo and a completely Purple Tie. "And with time to spare." said Qual "I do say I'm much more efficient then I thought." "Cut the crap" said Judoe, obviously mad about being proven wrong by the creature. "How much do I owe you?" "Nothing" said Qual "I just want a job." "A....job?" said Lizzie in a somewhat amazed tone of voice. "Yeah...fighting is nice, but it doesn't get food or anything like that, and I'd rather not have to rely on my superiors for nourishment." said Qual "So, we'll just work together on this, hm? It's not like you'll be hindered by me. I may even get some guys from the Gunjin to come by." "Well, obviously you helped us with the building....how can I say no?" said Judoe. "Then it's official!" chimed Lizzie "The Red Cloud Hotel is open for business!"

The Lobby is surrounded by a nice Green Wallpaper, with elevators conveniently behind the receptionist's desk. Near the desk is a sign "Rooms: 80 Gold, Special Rooms: 140 Gold". Lizzie ran over to the receptionist's desk when Qual walked in front of her. "One thing" said Qual, immediately casting a spell on Lizzie "I'm using a sealing spell. You probably didn't notice, but I can't have you unknowingly seducing guests. Get me?" "Uh....right. I forgot...." said Lizzie smiling cutely. Qual turned to his office behind the desk and pulled out a picture. It was of a childish looking man with a red shirt and pants with black boots and brown hair. "Tazy. I've heard the terrible stories about you in the tournaments and wars you've been in. Hopefully, this will lead me somewhere before the angels decide to send Kiyone after you."

Two men walked in the front door of the Red Cloud Hotel. They both wore very complex red and blue clothing that were assortments of long cloths and chain mail. One was six feet tall with black hair and emerald green eyes. He had a scabbard on his left hip. The other was six feet eight inches tall with stubble and carried a large hammer. He wore a medallion around his neck.

"Two single-bed rooms, please." The larger man asked the person at the receptionist's desk.

Lizzie opens a book with the title "Rooms", and turns the pages of the book to a section marked "Single Bed Rooms", then she says "Ok....Your rooms are 5134 and 5135 on the 51st floor. I assume you guys want to be next to one another, hm?" Lizzie doesn't wait for an answer before she pulls out the keys. "The price is 160 gold. That's 80 per room of course. If you don't have gold, just insert your form of currency riiiiiight over there." She points to the Currency Transfer Machine near the door. She waits for the two warriors to respond.

Suddenly, a trench-coated man walked into the hotel. The man's trench coat was black, and went down to his ankles. The man also had short spiky light brown hair, and knee high black boots. Currently in his left hand, was his trusty crowbar, a weapon he used to deal justice to the wicked, which made sense, seeing as the man was a vigilante. Yes, this man was named, Nightshade, and he trekked through the long and arid desert to find this hotel.


Nightshade walked up to the front desk. "I'd like to stay here a few nights, plea-" when something he saw made him stop right then and there. It was one of his biggest enemies, Qual, a large demon-like man with piercing violet eyes. He saw that the man was wearing a black tuxedo with a blue-red A on the back, as well as a purple tie. Nightshade walked up to the man and spoke. "Hello, Qual. I guess we meet again. I see you've made something of yourself and got a job here. I hate to say it, but I'm actually happy for you. I'd fight you, but I don't want you to get fired on your first day. Besides, it'd be a shame to mess up that nice suit." the trench-coated man intoned, as he walked back to the front desk. "As I was saying, I'd like to stay here a few days, say, 4 or 5?" he said to the manager.

OoC: THE FOLLOWING TAKES PLACE BEFORE VG Addict's POST^:

"51 floors?" the smaller man said in surprise.

The larger man overturned a leather bag and gold clattered on the counter. He counted out the correct amount, slid it forward and scooped the rest back into the bag.
"For that price, I'll just assume it includes meals..." he said and walked to the lobby, the shorter man following.

"Does this place feel strange to you?"

The large man shook his head. "This whole desert has a strange feeling. You just didn't notice it because you were busy fighting monsters. Now, you are relaxed and able to concentrate on the atmosphere."

The smaller man looked around. "I just feel like there's someone watching us..."

"There is. Those are the hotel workers, Wellings. We're obviously the first patrons they've had in a while."

"Since you have the money, you stay here and check out the gift shops and junk like that. Give me the keys and I’ll check out the rooms.”

The large man handed the keys to ‘Wellings’.

Whether or not there was an elevator did not matter to Wellings, he would not recognize it anyway. He dashed up the stairs to the 51st floor. The gold decorations on the wall caught his eyes. While he was admiring them, he thought he saw a dark figure run across the hall out of the corner of his eyes. He looked quickly, but saw nothing.

<My imagination must be playing tricks on me…>

He unlocked the door to room 5134 and walked in.

------------------------------------------

[Insert ^VG Addict’s post^]

Qual rolled his eyes. "The only thing that would get messed up is that stupid face of yours..." he mumbled under his breath.

Lizzie put her hands together and put them against her left cheek while tilting her head slightly to the left. "5 nights will be 400 gold. If you don't have gold, you can use our Currency Transfer Machine located near the entrance."

After he completed the transaction, Nightshade was approached by a 6’8” man with a giant hammer.

“Greetings. My name Srellen. I am a disciple of magical arts. Who are you, and what do you do?"

'Srellen' motioned for a handshake from Nightshade.


OoC: I've never done one of these before. Could I have a link to a good one so I can read it?

Also, is Nightshade psychic? How would he know Qual was on his first day of work?

OoC: It's actually 80 gold for as long as your want, so that you don't have to do keep making a payment for every metaphorical day.

Also,This is a good place to start and it has at least four parts to it., though this is back when I sucked at writing and I am kind of embarassed by it. If you have trouble finding the other Virtual Hotels, just ask me to get them for you.

Also, Nightshade and Qual have a past.
------------------------------------------------------------

Nightshade's compliment might as well have been an insult. Qual glared at Nightshade and said "You shouldn't be humbling me, Nightshade. I've wiped the floor with your face on more than one occasion." Before Nightshade could respond, Lizzie interjects, having just noticed the fighter. "Oh, wow! Nightshade! THE Nightshade! It's only been a few minutes and we have a real Gunjin celebrity!" Nightshade stared at Lizzie than back at the newcomer Srellen. Lizzie quickly composed herself. "Oh Right!" She turns a couple pages and says "Ok, you can have Room 1050 on the 10th floor, and it's 80 gold." She waits for a response.
