Disguised as a large, imposing manga library is the world's first Hellscraper: An underground complex that stretches down underground for over seventy five storeys, and his home for more than its fair share of dodgy dealings.
Each floor underground belongs to another ruthless criminal organisation- or perhaps, some groups that like not to be known about. Those involved in the occult, or extra terrestrial activity. Denizens from the future have been known to reside in this submerged tower, a cower if you will, although none know what resides on the 77th floor.
This changes tonight.
SamJaz strode into the foyer, waiting to see how many would reply to the advert he'd posted online. He'd posted a letter into Crown's actual mansion to get his involvement, as the only other ally he had at the moment was brawling in Osaka, slightly out of place.
The room looked welcoming. There was a pleasant water feature amongst the dark tiled floor. Behind it was a large counter where a receptionist sat at her computer, ready to talk to any visitors. There was a staircase up to the manga library that ran as the front of this place, but there was another staircase down, these guarded by large men in dark suits and sunglasses. And a velvet rope. Always a velvet rope.
On either side of the receptionist were elevators, which were what SamJaz strode for. Drawing his keyblade, hey aimed it at the metal doors and fired a beam of light, before lowering his blade in frustration.
"The doors aren't locked sir." The receptionist pointed out. "But I must warn you that there is only one button inside, and that leads here. If you have an appointment, I can operate the lift for you."
SamJaz smiled and walked over to the counter. "I would like to visit the bottom floor." He said charmingly.
The receptionist pressed a button on her desk, and a large screen opened up on the wall behind her.
[ TEAM PROGRESS - CURRENT FLOOR = GROUND ]]
[ TEAM COUNT - 0001 ]
[ HEAD COUNT - 000000000 ]
When SamJaz lowered his head from the screen, a second woman was sat at the counter, a nurse this time. She certainly had a lot of medical supplies on her person. "Feel free to return here for medical assistance whenever you require." She assured him sweetly. "I can assure you that I can heal any wound, injury, poison or debilitation quickly and efficiently so long as my patient is not deceased, although I must warn you that unless at least one member of the party remains inside while the injured come for treating, then you must start from the beginning."
SamJaz nodded, noting the large banner that dictated the rules of the Hellscraper Challenge. He was grateful for the rule that allowed for new team members to be allowed to join at any point, even skipping straight to the rest of the team via lift regardless of how deep the exploration got. "I'd like to wait here for my entourage to arrive. Is that agreeable?" He asked, not willing to show how much he was bricking himself at the moment.
"Of course." The receptionist replied with a smile. "Take as much time as you like."
SamJaz thanked her, then sat by the water fountain, looking at the door. He hoped Phantom took the bait.
