 SLOT MACHINE

 

In the back of the game room, a dusty old slot machine sits. The lower half of the machine has been modified, so as to dispense larger items.

Come one, come all, and test your luck. Every spin nets you a prize - will you find yourself with some tricks or some treats?


What is the Slot Machine?

This creepy cowboy-themed Slot Machine sits at the back of the game room, loud and out-of-place amongst the rest of the room's items. Every spin wins a prize - whether or not it's something useful is up for debate. Every so often, casino tokens will show up by your character's bedside. These can be used to play the slot machine.

How do we earn tokens?


ICly, it's a mystery. OOCly, tokens are awarded for every 20-comment thread (10 comments per person) between player characters you submit here. The only threads you cannot submit are those that take place during investigations, trials and motive announcements are eligible for a coin. Threads with NPCs are eligible for coins as well, but these threads must take place in public (i.e. you can't submit any letters/private threads with the Ghost Host for coins).

How do they work?

A token earns you a spin on the slot machine, and every spin earns you a prize. This may be one of your regains, somebody else's regain, or a piece of junk. This is all determined by RNG (there are two item groups, regains and misc. items. each item in those groups has an assigned number. we roll first to see if you're getting a regain or a misc. item, and then we roll to figure out exactly what you're getting.)


Do the threads I use/my coins have to be from this week?

Eligible threads never expire. For example, you can still submit week 1/intro log threads long after those periods end.


Can we use our coins to opt out of death rolls?

Nah. Gambling kills.


My threadmate turned in our thread already. Do I have to turn it in too to get a coin?
 
Yes


How do threads with more than two people work? 

In order to be able to redeem a thread, your character has to have contributed the minimum 10 comments normally in a standard coin thread. For instance, in order for all parties to be able to submit it, a 3-person thread has to be 30+ comments with at least 10 from each person, a 4-person has to be 40+, etc. Any participant with at least 10 comments can submit it for coin so long as the thread is at least 20 comments total.

The character I was threading with died. Can I still get paid for interacting with them? 

Yep! Dead characters can no longer redeem coins, but you can submit the threads anyway.


So who owns this slot machine anyway?

Who knows? It definitely doesn't fit in with the mansion's aesthetic. All we know is that occasionally, when nobody's around, your characters might hear it being used. Other times, they might stumble on to a bonus item that somebody left behind. Seems somebody here is fond of gambling...

 Room Assignments


The bedrooms are slightly less derelict than the rest of the mansion - if nothing else, you at least have running water and a bathroom/shower in here. Every room also contains an individual dresser than includes a notebook and a pencil, as well as a closet and a trunk to store your personal belongings. It'd almost make you think this was a pretty decent place - until you step outside the room and you notice the cobwebs and dust hanging around the place.

Attic


An old storage space. Being here for too long unnerves you. There are about twenty KEEP OUT signs posted to the door. 

Fourth Floor

Trophy Room
This room is filled all to wall of taxidermy animals of countless types of animals.  Thankfully or not, all the animals are recognizable so no one has been hunting mystical creatures or aliens. 

Shooting Gallery 
Right next to the trophy room is a shooting gallery.  The wall closest to the door is lined with guns and the targets line the wall on the opposite side.  The guns are just BB guns though, so don't think about killing someone with it unless you want to shoot someone's eye out! 

Bathing Room
Finally something not weird!  The bathing room is divided into two sections: men and woman's, although as long as you're not weird about it there is nothing stopping you from going into any side.  Each half is identical, with a large heated pool in the middle with enough chairs and heated towels to supply an army.  There's also various types of fancy soaps and lotions to get a real spa experience out of this room.



Third Floor

Casino 
The third floor is mostly compromised of an expansive casino.  Featuring various slots machines, roulette tables, and tables to play various card games.  The slots are free to play, too, so you don't have to worry about using up your precious coins to do some gambling

Bar

Near the entrance of the casino there is a full bar, with more alcoholic beverages and mixers  than you could ever drink in your life!  Like the kitchen, it's stocked daily too so you'll never have to worry about running out of 

Laundry Room

Yeah it might be a good idea to finally clean up all that blood and dirt that got on all of your clothes


Second Floor 


Ballroom

A large and ornate ballroom, with a large organ in the corner. Occasionally, it will play on its own.

Music Room 

Covered in dust, some of the instruments you find in here could almost be antiques. 

Seance Room 

This room is littered with tarot cards and dark texts. A crystal ball sits prominently in the middle of the room. 

Billiards Room 

The most defining feature of this room is the large pool table.. Jiminy will still have a heart attack just looking at it.


First Floor


Game Room

This room is filled with dusty old chess boards (the pieces sometimes move when you turn your back) and vintage board games, including everybody's  favorite: Dip Flip! In the corner, there's a dirty old slot machine - care to try your luck? 

Kitchen

A 1950s-style kitchen, alebit it's as run-down as the rest of the place. Surprisingly, the food in here is safe to eat. The cupboards are fully stocked, and the fridge is filled with a decent amount of food, both replenishing overnight.

There is a mirror with a blue frame in the corner. Staring at this mirror for up to five seconds will cause the viewer to become briefly disoriented and send them to the Study. 

Gallery

A portrait gallery, featuring paintings of rather ghoulish-looking figures and scenery. Are their eyes following you?

Lounge

This lounge would honestly look pretty fancy if it weren't for the cobwebs hanging about everywhere. Might be a good place to hold a swinging wake.

There is a mirror with a red frame in the corner. Staring at this mirror for up to five seconds will cause the viewer to become briefly disoriented and send them to the Conservatory. 

Foyer

The foyer is simple enough - it leads off into the bedrooms and has quite a number of seating areas scattered about. It's almost a little elegant, despite the creep factor. 

Against one of the walls are 25 biographies - similar to what one might see in a museum. Each biography has a red button next to it - pressing it will play a song associated with the subject of the biography.

Bathrooms

Just in case you get too spooked.

Staircase

A large staircase, leading up to the other floors.

Conservatory

A sitting room that will allow you to enjoy the outside - there are actual windows here, allowing you to see a graveyard outside, but the windows themselves won't break or budge. There's also a door here that similarly can't be broken.

There is a mirror with a red frame in the corner. Staring at this mirror for up to five seconds will cause the viewer to become briefly disoriented and send them to the Lounge. 

Study

This is a pleasant little workspace, featuring a large clock and a desk with a large amount of writing material. There's a crackling fireplace in the corner that can't seem to be extinguished.

There is a mirror with a blue frame in the corner. Staring at this mirror for up to five seconds will cause the viewer to become briefly disoriented and send them to the Kitchen. 

Stretching Room

A circular room, with no chambers and no doors there are four very large portraits hanging all around the area. Why do you suppose it's called the stretching room?



Outside


Accessed through the conservatory doors, the outside is exactly what it seems like. It's a large outside area, littered by the occasional tombstone (of nobody you guys know) and an expansive forest filled with twisted trees and cawing ravens. It's always an eternal night here, with a constant full moon lingering over the proceedings.

Though it might seem like this is an easy way out, given there's no walls or obvious barriers, walking away from the mansion will eventually just bring you to back to it. Good luck leaving.
