Welcome to Refuge

Scattered about all levels of Uto and other cities throughout Skire, some posters and flyers seem to have been scattered about. On some, the picture of a blue and white CCCat dressed for a night out and welcoming customers to a place called Refuge within the level of Key in Uto. Others, a darker Crook with purple and pink highlights who is also welcoming customers to the same place. Both carry the same tagline, “Two times, one building.”

After a bit of time winding through the streets of Key following the instructions of the flyers, you stumble upon the exterior of a purple building. There are no windows really to see through into it, however the sound of music seems to seep through the walls. A large neon purple sign signals, “Welcome to Refuge!” and a smaller one beneath it reads, “or are you here for Prohibition?” An odd pair of neon signage but… you’re sure you may just find out what it means.

Walking into the building leads you in two directions. Going to the left of the entrance brings you to an almost entirely different time period. Inside, real instruments are seen as their sounds echo throughout the brick-walled room, and the CCCat that was on the poster sings with a sultry voice from another time. A sign hangs over the bar that reads, “Prohibition”. It is a more relaxed environment with live music compared to the DJ and rave happening on the other side of the wall, and with the way the building is built it is almost like they are miles away from each other.

Heading into the right of the entrance is a purple and pink party hall it seems, with bright lights scattered about and dancing across the room. Music bumps from one end, and a bustling crowd fills the room with bright bands on their wrists. It seems to be a rave room of sorts, and running the bar is the same Crook seen on one of the posters. Above her is a sign that flashes “Refuge Rave”.

The question is, where will you decide to spend your evening?

Here is a layout of Refuge - feel free to pick either side for your entry! The empty area up front is just a general hallway connected to a bathroom, but was not detailed for this event as it wasn’t necessary.
