Just all the coast cube was an island, it was relatively small and owned by a neutral benefactor who had way too much money for his own good (a good portion of which was invested in the criminal underworld). The island was often used for many illegal purposes but this one is particular was unique as four crime bosses and their respective gangs along with several corrupt politicians, cops, world leaders, hit men, mercenaries, and some of the worst scum gathered. The crime bosses held a private poker game between them with high stakes however this year security was on high alert several high ranking members from the four have been assassinated and the crime lords have received a threat from the killer warning he will strike again killing three of them. Now the four have begun to point fingers at one another trying to find who hired the assassin. To protect themselves they have hired four of the best Hidden World mercenaries their money can buy.
The mansion where their poker game took place was built for such events each floor had a spate purpose and had plenty of rooms for guests to rest in; one floor was set up like a brothel with the finest girls to provide all kinds of pleasures with more than enough provide rooms, another was set up like restaurant, one floor was a small casino with several games for the guests, even the basement was used as some barbaric bare knuckle fighting ring. However one room was the most secured the most private and that was the room used poker game it was locked from the inside and out, guards protected the halls with orders to shoot on sight, and it was built with technology that keep all manners of surveillance and detection were blocked. The dealer and deck was changed every third hour to prevent any cheating. In the room at a small table sat the four crime lords; from Japan Kurōbā Matsomuto the head of an infamous yakuza gang, from Mexico was Ramon Corazón a cartel boss, from Russia Ivan Almaz a Russian Pakhan, finally from Italy was Antonio Vanga the head of a mafia family. Hidden within the shadows of the room stood three figures; the first dealer enter as the game was about to begin.
Meanwhile in the casino room, which was filled with various criminals who were gambling recklessly, a young man stood at the bar dressed in a black 3 piece suit and black shades along with a particular cowboy hat was the American Bounty Hunter Crow Cementerio. The Last Gunslinger had snuck into the event under a fake aliases (Clint Bala) however despite all the high targets in the room he couldn’t go after them because of their various connections the bounty Crow was after was the mysterious assassin going by the name of Snake Eyes who was supposed to be targeting the crime lords. Crow was not the only Bounty Hunter going after “Snake Eyes” within the same room was two other BHs also from the Artemis Branch. Causally walking around the room was Toni Sociere (alias Megan Magie) who were a medium black dress with a small black cape around her shoulders and small witch hat on her head. At the black jack table was the Artemis Branch’s White Rabbit Felicia Faraday (alias Catherine Conejo).
The Rail-gun glanced around the room as the bar tender asked what he wanted to drink, “Whiskey on the rocks partner.” With a courteous nod the bar keep made Crow’s drink and sighed a little stealthy mission like this could get tedious; no one knew what Snake Eyes looked like and with a place filled with criminals it was like a trying to find a snake in a viper pet. Meanwhile Toni was also looking around a cocktail in one hand and a frown on her face as she dealt with men trying to get with her. However that frown suddenly burst into a smile when she spotted her knight in shining armor and future husband Crow. Toni became overjoyed her face blushing bright red as she was unsure how to approach the Gunslinger. On the other side of the room Felicia was keeping the house on a streak at the black jack table, “Come on boys you can’t let this girl kick your butts all day. If I didn’t know any better she guys were letting me win.” The White Rabbit flashed a smile at one the men who slowly developed a nose bleed, Felicia hot streak was a bit more than just luck as her tight outfit left plenty of cleavage for the men to eye ball.
Downstairs however as fun and pleasures of all kind took place in the mansion a figure stood in the center of a darken room blood and bodies all around him. He causally wiped the blood off a pair of scissors in his hand on one of the corpse’s sleeves as he spoke to the dead. “Hmm that last one gave me plenty of information even though it was kind of hard to understand through his screams of pains as I removed his genitals. At least I had some fun making him watch as I killed the others. Now time to make good on my promise to kill three crime lords today.” The Viper was there.
