For 5 citizens of Vagol that night was like any other. A hard day followed by peaceful slumber. As they drift into deep sleep the strangers find themselves outside of Portal 51, the most exclusive club in Vagol. A long line has formed where individuals must meet the standards of two short orcs to get inside. The group notices a pink blur flash across the sky. Alain, naive to societal customs cuts to the front of the line and walks in. One orc stops him and asks him who he thinks he is. Alain casually explain that he is simply following the pink blur and the orc grudgingly lets him inside. Other members begin getting entrance into the club through similar flimsy excuses, but almost all mention the pink blur.
A singer has just taken the stage as they enter the club. She is a blue gemstone come to life. Her singing is mesmerizing and after a moment they realize she is not singing out loud, but inside their heads. While most of the group approach the stage and mil about in the pit, Harbek Ironbone (dwarven/fighter) makes his way into the common bar. Here he notices a female mul bartender who looks like the one he just saw in the pit. He also see a variety of strange people drinking, playing games, and itching for a fight. In the main area, Alain flirts with the singer, but he realizes this is just part of the act and she is not really interested in him. Fosse scans the room for spies, seeing eyes, or other security besides the Thri-Keen blocking the door next to the stage. She fails to notice 1 eye on each of the four ornate decorative pillars that are monitoring the room. The pink blur darts across the room this time going behind a velvet rope guarded by an incredibly tall and thin, blue genasi. While most of the party make their way to the fellow and begin using their silver tongues that got them into the club, Mord (orc/barbarian) recognizes an acquaintance from his old job. They talk briefly and his friend encourages him to go to the bar and have a couple of rounds of Moonsprite if he wants to get what this singer is all about. Mord makes his way to the bar. The female mul introduces herself and teases Mord that he’s not man enough to handle Moonsprite. Two rounds later the mul has a newfound respect for the young orc.
No one knows that this is still a dream…
Once everyone has made their way into the vip area, the pink blur slows down and officially introduces herself as Maddie. A pink gnome with spiky-white-hair and sass. She tells them that she needs them to do a job for her and the group agrees.
