[Wind Reach] Inclement Weather

Description:

Never having seen the light of day, the nightly revelry that is Inclement Weather sits nestled into the very bowels of the mountain. The interior of Mt Skyinarta is filled with corridors, rooms for living and work space, making it difficult to find a sheltered place within the mountain big enough to house the party space. Since the purpose of Inclement Weather is to entertain massive amounts of people, space was of the highest priority. So, the builders just went deeper; further in past all the living quarters and hallways, and down far enough that the raucous celebration of inebriated individuals didn't disturb the otherwise peaceful nightlife of Wind Reach.

Formed by stone reminancers, Inclement Weather is simply a humungous room. Because of the nature of the stone, the walls were far from smooth and possessed many natural shelves and pockets ranging from the size of a mans fist to that of his head. Instead of the rooms perimeter arcing in a graceful curve from either side of the entrance way, the walls were filled with small alcoves and indents, forming more of a jagged oval than the preferred clean circle. The floor was smoothed down by the reminancers, removing most of the natural bumps or cracks in the stone. Since the dance floor was going to be dark, it was unsafe to leave the floor in such an uneven state.

Using everything to their advantage, the many Inartans who were set to decorating the room used the pockets as sconces; lights shining from the hundreds of pockets along the wall giving the room a warm glow. The shelves were also smoothed and evened, left bare to be used as tables or a place to lean. Chairs were placed in the small alcoves for those wishing to sit; those spaces big enough also boasted small tables. Curtains hung from poles secured high up in opening of the alcoves so those inside could close themselves off from the noise of the club if they so wished.

Spaced evenly around the room, certain alcoves were reserved for the musicians that gave the revelry life. The positioning of the alcoves and their sizes, in this case, were intentionally created for maximum acoustics.
To the left and right of the entrance way were the bars. Emerging from the wall, the bar top stretched almost to the doors with stools on one side for the patrons. On the other side was the bartended, and behind him was level upon level of shelves had been sculpted into the stone. Any party must have alcohol, after all. And Blue Mold Paste. There was a bowl of it at the very end of the bar. It had been there for so long that it was starting to look like the blue mold was growing mold. No one really liked the stuff, but they were out of peanuts.

The main floor of Inclement Weather was left open for dancing and mingling. The lights from the walls cast a soft glow around the entirety of the space, but doesn't fully reach the very center of the room, leaving it dark and mysterious. Not surprisingly, this shadowy heart of the room is where the 'miscreants' of Wind Reach are found. Cloaked by the darkness and the press of bodies, superfluous drug and alcohol abuse have been known to occur. As it were, the curtained off alcoves along the wall are another safe hideaway for such debauchery. People do come to Inclement Weather to have a good time, after all.

Even though there was no shortage of individuals looking to dance the night away on any given night of the week, the Inartan's also thought it necessary to designate special nights for extra crazy partying.

Special Nights at Inclement Weather :
  • Spring Revelry- Every 30 days of the season, the space is transformed into a flowery forest wonderland. Those attending are asked to wear pastels and decorate their persons with a flora of their choosing.
  • Summer Revelry- Every 10 days of the season, the space is transformed into a hot, sweaty summer love fest. Those attending are asked to wear as little as possible to go along with the "I'm so hot" theme.
  • Fall Revelry- Every 15 days of the season, the space is transformed into the peak of fall. While everyone is on edge about the approaching summer, these special nights are used to simply relax and actually enjoy the beautiful change in foliage for once. Because spirits are usually starting to dwindle during this time, it is not rare to see less dancing and more lounging and talking.
  • Winter Revelry- During the winter, when everyone is cooped up inside because of massive amounts of snow, this particular party is thrown quite often. Guests are asked to only wear white and put on masks. Mystery is the key, and no one is allowed to reveal themselves. Everyone is paired off and the same partners kept for the entire evening. Every 20 or so days, special games and activities are added.
  • Misc- Birthday celebrations as well as other random occasions

Recreational Drugs
Name: Poppers
Use Sniffed/Snorted/Inhaled
Effects: Chemical contained within the air sack of most aquatic animals. When tissue is punctured and the chemical reacts with the air, the user inhales the resulting gas and experiences a warm, light headed feeling. A feel good drug.

Name: Winger
Use Sniffed/Snorted
Effects: - In the interest of making the drugs easy to conceal and hide, a powder narcotic that can be spread on the fibers of a feather and sniffed (think line of cocaine). Can also be snorted in bullet size out of a hallowed out talon. This drug causes fierce hallucinations as well as a feeling of intense invincibility and usually the side effect of thinking one can fly.

Name: Rez, "R"
Use Can be added any hot drink, like tea, smoked or baked into food.
Effects: An herb mostly used for medicinal purposes. It is intended to help balance the chemicals in ones brain that controls mood and temper, but when used recreationally it acts as a downer, slowing the pulse and inhibiting proper brain functions. Very dangerous when misused, but found to be a popular de-stresser.

Name: Temper
UseCan be smoked or baked into foods.
Effects: Wind Reaches weed. Very popular among the lower castes since it is the more affordable of the drugs. Side effects include paranoia and the inability to sit still for very long.

Name: Apple Sauce
Use Can be smoked, eaten or dissolved in alcohol.
Effects: Like Opium, this is the sap of a small, ugly bush that grows on the side of the mountain, one of very few plants that can withstand the severe weather. It produces what look like miniature apples that are inedible, but the sap from the actual tree can be gathered and used as a narcotic.

Name: Funkus
Use: Can be dried and powdered.
Effects: Small, hallucinogenic mushrooms that grow around the base of the mountain and in the surrounding forest. Can be eaten for extreme hallucinations that consist of either a positive or negative “trip” where ones whole awareness are consumed by this experience.

Name: Warp
Use: Tablet or pill
Effects: After 1-2 hours of ingesting the drug, visual awareness is heightened, sounds become enhanced, emotions and physical sensations are altered. The user’s sense of self and its interaction with people or objects, their concept of reality is generally brought to question. Strange visual stimuli, that may or may not be comforting or frightening overwhelm the user, there is a real risk of irrational fear taking over, paranoia, confusion or panic. Equally, some people have apparently wonderful experiences with none of these symptoms.

Name: The "Pinch" or "Poke"
Use: Can be smoked sniffed or injected
Effects: Used as a painkiller, when taken in large doses it’s extremely addictive. It causes a sense of euphoria, exhilaration and a sense of well being. It is an expensive drug that almost no one but the most wealthy can afford, mostly Endal. Even after moderate usage, if the drug isn’t continuously taken there are extreme withdrawal effects that usually cause the addict to do almost anything for another hit.

Name: Dreamweaving
Use: Absorbed through the skin
Effects: The natural fumes of Mt. Skyinarta are put to use in the Dreaming Lady, causing the user to experience vivid dreams and visions.

Name: The "Slammer"
Use: Tablet, pill or injected
Effects: Primary used as a muscle relaxer, but study proved it to be too strong and with an odd effect. When taking this herb, the user experiences complete numbness in all of their limbs for a period of 1/half hours while still having full control of their bodies. In this condition the user could push their bodies further and harder without feeling any pain at all. Side effects once the dose wears off the user will gain the feeling of their earlier bruises and illnesses and probably need another dose.

Name: Eagle Eyes
Use: Absorbed through the eye
Effects: This liquid drug puts the ciliary muscles in the eye into overdrive, causing the pupil to dilate and increasing the near and far vision of the user to that of supposedly an eagle. Side effect, the user sometimes experiences sensitivity to light and long term use could result in blindness.

Name: Love Dust
Use: Sniffed/Snorted or tasted
Effects: - A powder narcotic that is ingested through the nose or mouth. This drug causes intense lust to be with another (something similar to what animals feel in mating season.) The users body becomes ultra sensitive and something as simple as a hug could send them into blissful ecstasy. Side effect-way too many one night stands.


NPCs:

Bartenders Tom and Tessa: The duo provided something for everyone. In general, clubs were sexually charged atmospheres. Both of them boasted perfect physiques; Tom was tall, muscular, and very handsome while Tessa boasted curves galore and was considered one of the great beauties of Wind Reach. They both were expert bartenders and able to concoct a wide variety of drinks

Akvin Kultra: Wildly popular, talented and sexy, Akvin spends most of his time in the Weather. A wicked drummer with perfect hair for headbanging, the magecrafter lets loose when he is behind his drum set. Not only is he good looking and a drummer...but he can sing. While many people come to Inclement Weather for the fun and music, many more come for Akvin himself.

Lebanon: A loud and racous man, he always loved to be the center of attention. Playing the guitar along with his good friend Akvin, Lebanon is known to pull crazy stunts and run all over the place while he is performing. The crowds love him.
