*About a week has passed since the conclusion of the Saligia. Lakt, mobile after some decent recovery from his injuries, takes a seat at a simple table in the corner. From a bag on his back, he tosses out a few... interesting objects. Some coins, a few books, a number of toys and games, among others. Nothing of any real value at the school, but a number of decent ways to pass the time... and not so decent.

He speads out a deck of cards, shuffles them, and holds his hand over them.*

So, who's interested in a game of cards!!!

(OOC: hope that doesn't imply what I think it implies...)

*Walks/limps (kind of halfway between the two) through the doorway* Screaming at anyone in particular? Well, anyways, I'm game. Not much else to do here...

(OOC: Woah... When did you post?

I reread that, and... wow. I didn't realise it sounded so.. yeah. It's just contraband that would be common in the period. Something that having would be frowned upon, but not strictly enforced as banned.

What I meant really was gambling stuff, songbooks, little bazaar (shop)-quality tabloids and tall tale books, tops, dolls, hats, some drinks (what I was implying, since we're like all minors here and likely some values dissonance and whatever), candy... that kind of stuff. The kind that Mushu (is he still around?) wouldn't (be able to) provide. Stuff easily bought with a child's allowance (actually, peasant earnings) and a military discount, but that no sane military would provide as a ration.

For a parallel; for those in the US military, the drinking age is 18, not 21 (in countries where that would also be legal, like, say, Germany); who cares about a few drinks when one's on day leave, when that same one is also facing his mortality?

But. Um. Wow.)


Sure. See anything that tickles your fancy? I'd go for the nice red longcoat myself. Since everyone's hurt and unable to go shopping with their wages, ya' know, I figure, with my relative health I'd go 'n get stuff for 'em. Of course, I figure I had otta make things more fun.

What's your ante? What interests you?

Poker would work, if you can get someone else. Otherwise Blackjack.

Alright.

*Lakt shuffles the deck. The first card to Riessen is a 10 of hearts; the first card to Lakt is a king of spades (13).*

Your call. Hit or stand?

Hit me.

(OOC: Is this really how Blackjack works? I'm pretty sure you start out with 2 cards...one face up and one down...)

(OOC: Not in the version I've learned; we both draw until we're at ten. then, the challenger (you) draws until he either passes a sum of 21 (a loss) or decides to stand. Then, the dealer (Lakt) draws until he either surpasses or ties with the challenger or he busts (over 21). Aces count as one. Red jacks count as 11, and black jacks are instant wins for the challenger. I'm using a RNG to get the values for the cards.

Perhaps we should have agreed to the rules first of all?)

*Lakt deals a 10 of spades. Riessen has a total of 20.*

Woo... Stand or hit? *Said with a dying hope in his voice.*

(OOC: Has this been a trainwreck so far?)

*Lakt draws a queen of hearts. Total: 25. He busts.*

Ach, darn it. *With obviously faked enthusiasm,* You win! Congratulations!

*He laughs a bit, as he hands a bottle of cheap red wine over to Riessen.* Anything else you want to play for?

(OOC: You could play again, for anything really. Or suggest any other game, like card matching, a solitaire, that kinda stuff.)
