    Fortune's Fire Resort & Casino

    There was a great turn out at the Grand Opening of the Fortune's Fire Resort & Casino! I made my way to the tables and sure enough I won my first bet, boy this place is addictive!

    Dice Game Tent
    There are three games offered at the Dice tent. 5 hands of a game will be played before the game changes. When the game changes players who have already been playing are asked to leave their seats to allow those waiting a chance to play.

    All bets must be handed directly to the dealer and entered on your "Checkers" stack by double clicking it in the format Your Name: 50k
    Min/Max Bet for any game: 5k/50k


    A player wages and rolls 2d6 to get as close to 21 without going over. Then the dealer rolls. Player wins if they beat the dealer, or the dealer busts.


    Lucky 7 - Players bet on one of three outcomes (under 7, over 7, 7) of the 2d6 total.

    Under 7 [1-1]
    Payout: Over 7 [1-1]
    Payout: 7 [5-1]

    Ankh & Serpent -
    Players bet on any number from 1 to 6. The dealer rolls the dice and pays out according to the number thrown and keeps all other stakes. Some operators or gambling establishments only allow one bettor per number and spread the bets out.

    Payout: Number comes up on one die [1-1] (Evens)
    Payout: Number comes up on a two dice [2-1]
    Payout: Number comes up on all three dice [3-1]

    Lucky Darts Tent


    Bullseye - Players enter their wager onto the Checker stack by double clicking and entering their name, followed by their wager. Player then takes a single throw at the dartboard.

    Example: Player Name: 50k
    Min/Max Bet: 5k - 50k

    I had a wonderful time! When I was through gambling I made my way to the beach up north and sat on a beach towel! Great time EM's I look forward to this resort in the future!

  3. As the Mayor of Nidaros, I had to be real careful as to not be tempted to gamble away the towns monetary funds. But my trusted Emissary, Judge, felt he could up the towns coffer and decided to head to this beautiful beach resort, with all the trimmings, with a pocket full of cash. As soon as he was instructed to stable his pet, he was admitted to the resort, where he immediately headed for the dice tent. Once there, he learned the rules and commenced to laying his money on the table, taking the chance of getting a bundle back. After dropping 200k in losses to the house, (the Mayor will talk to him about this), with head hung low, he made his way to the resorts famous bar, convienently placed next door. He ordered an ale and waited for the pole dancers to begin dancing. After many ales and no pole dancers, he decided to take a swim. So he headed to the "clothes optional" section of the beach, stripped down, and dove into the warm, calm waters.

    After his swim, he made a quick tour of the facilities and because he was late for an executive meeting, had to depart the resort, while all the time looking back at the "Dice Tent". (He so much wanted to return there and try and get his money back and skip the meeting). But duty called.

    I wrote this to say that I thought the ones responsible for putting this togther (EM's/Devs,etc) did a superb job. It was fun, relaxing, and the layout was great. (Ah! the sweet smells of the tropical breezes). The EM's did a GREAT job at running the resort and we salute you. It's projects like this that make this game fun. A very good job done and hope to have more like this continued as time goes by. (oh, and Judges ship might just catch the seas current just right as to find its way back to the Dice Tent).

    Again, thank you EM's for the fun time last night. Looking forward to more.
