Designing in Public: No Beast So Fierce,

This is a raw design of a sandbox location in the ruined city of Nō, on the alternate high-tech earth world known as Fierce. If you plan to play in the adventure for Lords of Gossamer & Shadow  No Beast So Fierce (Diceless), I suggest not reading this post. 

The Parallax:

There is a large neon blinking sign pointing down to what appears to be a set of stairs leading underground with a large heavy steel door at the bottom right hand side. The door is locked.

Within you find a black light lit nightclub playing music from the late 90s with leopard print carpet with neon colored walls. There is a sunk in dance floor,  with leather neon couches along its edges, a large wine cellar behind glass as well as a humidifier for cigars (bottles and boxes are missing, haven been taken by Sota-sama, and a number of virtual holographic computer consoles, there is also a fully stocked glass bar along the western wall. Around the room near the ceiling along the outer walls is a cylindrical aquarium that leads out to the southern wall, which made entirely of glass and apparently opens out to an underground lake. In two separate rooms are a pocket billiards table and a holographic entertainment system.    

The electronic ink image of Sota-sama, who appears to be injured, will tell non-cyber-naki who reach the bottom of the steps: “Welcome to what was either the world’s greatest nightclub or the worlds tackiest, I am not sure I have too much nostalgia for the place to have an objective opinion. You will find some good wine and cigars here. The Cyber-Naki avoided the Parallax for the last month due to chance of attracting the attention of Phoros.” 

Psyche: A ranked PC will get a sense that there is something off about this location. The highest ranked PC will detect an unusually disturbance to the interaction of Eidolon and Umbra.

Perceiving the Umbra: Anyone using this ability will sense a strong flow of umbra flowing down the stairs, and through this room into the underground lake (eventually reaching Phoros).

The umbra kaiju known as Phoros will be attracted by any use of Eidolon in the club
