what do people think of a casino based group?

so I've been thinking about groups again, something which I do quite often.

I know this idea sounds a lot like the gamblers but I want to hear the communities views on it.

I wish to make a group sooner or later about a man who "worships" Lady Fortune, basically my character Kenway have been showing insanity and an over attachment in this mystical being Lady Fortune which is what the Chinese to be a God who over watches luck and fortune. even of to the point of calling himself Mr Fortune Cookie.

because luck is commonly known with gambling, and that many Chinese gamblers often say "Lady Fortune give me luck".

I want to start a group which situates in a place, they call The Fortune Casino. a place where they reside and promotes vice(drugs, gambling, smoking, drinking, etc)

a little like the New Vegas Strip from Fallout 3 New Vegas, yes it would most likely be a bandit/survivalist group but I prefer to look at it as a group who based their survival on the sole gamble. a group of survivors who believes that luck is the most important thing in the world.

(P.S if I was to make this group, I would require someone to actually lead it. I would provide as much help as I can but with my time zone I'm not on that often until weekends)

It has been done before, when the Gamblers were active they would set up events involving casino games, drinking and fights etc. So I'm sure that if it conformed with the Lore then I don't see it as being an issue. Might be an idea to speak to Johnny Denver though.

Aside from the above considerations I myself, though I support the idea, would give it another name than Casino. It sounds too much like flashy lights and all the pre-apocalyptic amenities. Make it something more dark like, more gritty. I am not sure whether Littlefinger offered gambling too but something but something with the feel of his whorehouse in Game of Thrones.

A place where the customer is absolutely not in control, where anything might happen to him. You could even spin that further to ask ooc permission to permascar/permadeath as an entry prerequisite. Think about smashing hands for cheating. But I guess for a lot of RPers that might go too far ;)

I think it would actually be pretty interesting to see. I could see it like the above, being a place of very dark, dank vices. A place where you could be on anything, like how many infected a man could take down bare handed before he gets killed or gives up.

Honestly, if the Sons of the Fallen, or the other motorcycle group gets going strong enough and your casino group does not, I could see this being a little backroom thing as well.

It's been done.

But might be fun if you made it similar to the Gamblers casino.

Although i think you should ask for permission before making a copied casino.

I've ask Johnny for some advice and hopefully a copyright stamp so you know, fingers crossed

As far as what I can tell from the interactions I had with the Gamblers, they mostly travelled across the map, not necessarily staying in one place for a large amount of time. This being said, I'm not sure if they travelled much when they opened their Casino, but if you had a permanent settlement, perhaps it will be different than what the Gamblers had?

Personally, I think it may be a little soon to be bringing in another group based on Gambling, but if it's done well then you may be able to pull it off even despite the history with the Gamblers.

yeah I agree, honestly I want to start a settlement based on gambling and vices. much like the anti colony, a place where people come and have a good time. like I always say "why resist sin when you can enjoy it till your last breath"

A colony based on hedonism? If executed right, it could be pretty successful! Good luck with this idea if you decide to go through with it!
