TYPE: Private Business (Burlesque Club)
BACKGROUND: Background: In 2012, Lena Koslova, formerly Millet, opened Shotgun's Cigar Lounge in Black Bottom. The club specialized in cigar and liquor sales and mainly stuck to it's 1930s theme. The club also hosted nightly burlesque shows and events were centered around cigar sales and burlesque. Shotgun's doors stayed open for a good while, but later, Lena then closed Shotgun's doors due to proper clientele and moved business to Tennessee. Since then, Lena has expanded her business to Las Vegas, NV and Atlanta, GA migrating away from cigar specialization and venturing into only providing live burlesque shows and stage performances. Along with Lena's professional life, the socialite has also become involved in human and drug trafficking and has been in close ties with some of Hathians most notorious criminals.
UNIQUE: Shotgun's is a Burlesque club and Crack Den hasn't had one since Shotgun's closed years ago. Burlesque is more about the artistry of the striptease than it is about taking your clothes off; it'd open many opportunities for events frequently giving players several venues of roleplay. Lena's seedy connections in her interpersonal relationships provides roleplay opportunities for players who enjoy dark scenes. Lena is in the business of selling flesh and sometimes she involves women forcefully. Those players whose characters have plots going with sex trafficking may find themselves doing business with Lena or her associates. Because of the "good time" culture she promotes drugs will be flowing in and out of Shotgun's, being provided to dancers and staff and provided to patrons by the same. Players who write junkies, pushers, ravers, etc. could find Shotgun's to be a place to commune in peace. Shotgun's also provides HPD with possible frequent rp. Raids, bribes, stings, etc.
EXPERIENCE: I've roleplayed in CD for years (about 9 years) now and before I came to CD, I danced in SL clubs (strip clubs and others), and roleplayed in other fantasy and urban sims. I was the Social Chair in CU's MAD sorority and planned all of our events and parties. I stayed and became co-president until MAD eventually disbanded. I also open Shotgun's years ago and ran it for sometime before traffic dwindled and I shut it down. The main part in its closure was the location. Black Bottom was not a prime location. Why would people leave all the action in Hathian to shuffle over to quite and sleepy BB? Over the years, I've solely roleplayed in Crack Den on and off, only taking a hiatus if RL was too hectic to keep active plots going. With the support system I have now, if I did go on a brief hiatus to handle RL, I have a reliable support system to assist me in world absences; and nowadays, I'm only a Discord message away.
IDEAS: I plan to make someone reliable and trusted, and communicative to be my "right hand" if the occasion arises that I cannot be online during an emergency. Sundays and Friday nights are my best days for events and major plot involvement. All levels of writing and experience are welcome. I'm willing to help and guide those who are new to dance oriented rp. I'd love a playroom in the establishment for a "anything goes" area available to patrons and staff. Private auction nights that are just essentially bids on trafficked bodies; this event would be "invitation only" but all would be welcomed to come and rp being "invited". Open to factions offering to be Shotgun's supplier in drugs and bodies; individual salespeople are also welcome. One time sellers are awesome and welcome, but long term plots are encouraged.
OTHER: I also want everyone to feel like I'm available and around as often as I can be, or at least reachable for questions, ideas, or concerns. During the week, Mondays and Wednesdays are my best days after 4pm SLT until about 9pm SLT. And weekends are more flexible. I'm typically around early on Saturdays and then available all day Sundays. I'm open to all ideas for plots that would involve the business.
