Roof (Whimsy) Michael was thoroughly confused. If strangeness of your surroundings on having finally woken up were any indicator of how well the night previous had gone ... well, it had certainly been a doozy then. Alone with just his Slowpoke and a mattress - God knows where that came from - on some odd roof, the young trainer surveyed his surroundings, looking for some means of getting out of this rather awkward predicament. As he slowly but surely made his way across the roof, he noticed two things of immediate interest to him. On the other end of the roof - some distance away - was a small hut like building, no doubt some sort of access point to the roof from within the building he found himself atop. There was a large green sign attached to the side which clearly indicated it as some sort of fire escape, so chances were it wasn't locked. Unfortunately, the more pressing issue at hand was perched on top of the hut itself. A rather large Fearow, even by standards typical of the species, was perched above the hut, furtively scanning the area with it's beady eyes. Oddly, something seemed to be strapped to the crest of the bird, but Michael couldn't quite make out exactly what was attached to the black leather strap from this distance. Though its back was mercifully to Michael for now, should be make any sort of hurried movement there was no telling whether it would detect him or not. Given the species' tendency for violence and their proclivity to defend their territory, it was evident that Michael would need to be careful for more reasons than a worry of falling through the roof.

Upstairs (Missingo Master, CyberBlastoise, Gemini Spark, EpicSquirtle, morningstar): Keith and Ginny, intending to disperse from the gathering trainers who were now flooding into the Casino - no doubt with intentions entirely similar to their own - headed towards the nearby staircase which led upstairs. As they ascended the flight, they noticed that the surroundings were a little more lavish than the lobby area; no expense had been spared when it came to decorating this area, with intricate gold decorations hanging along the length of the walls and glinting gently in the somewhat softer lighting of the surroundings. Finally, the pair come to the head of the stairs, pushing against two large, wooden doors. They move open with ease, a little creak resonating around the room, and Keith steps inside. He finds himself in an incredibly spacious room - likely situated just above the main room of the Casino itself, and certainly as large as the main floor. Numerous tables sporting different games were spread around the area, but much more interesting were the people - rather, the distinct lack of. The area was barely occupied, and every participant seemed to be dressed up in their absolute best, each sporting fancy apparel and dripping with an air of higher society. Keith is brought to his senses by a deep grunt, turning to his right to see a Machoke with his arms crossed, eyes narrowed and staring at Keith. After a while, the tensed Pokemon simply nods, turning back towards watching the others in the room, and at this point Keith notices others climbing the stairs now behind him, a rather weird group in their own right.

Bill and his Squirtle, Error the Magneton, Hyrem and his Froslass, Athena and her Snubbull all stood in the doorway, frozen in place by the beady eyes of the Machoke. It was clear that the Fighting type was becoming suspicious of such a large gathering of people, so it would likely be best for the group to split up as soon as possible. As those within the group look around to take in more of the surroundings, they realise three corridors leading deeper into the floor - with the door behind them situated at the south side of the room, the corridors each led off in the other three cardinal directions, north, east and west.
