1. QUESTION: How do I get in touch with customer service phone support? ANSWER: The highest level of official customer service is known as "tier 2" and can be reached by calling 1-800-659-2955 and asking for Tier 2. (NOTE: As of 5/29 the previous direct number is currently out of service) They are unfortunately, a very limited means of support. They are able to check your application status and see the current "stage" and leave notes in your file, but unable to directly make any changes or escalate anything in a meaningful way. Most are very nice and well meaning people but are usually poorly informed and often provided contradictory information between calls. The important thing to understand is that notes left by T2 do not actually notify a loan officer or anyone, they are simply waiting to be read if someone happens to open your file and takes the time to review the case notes. So if a T2 says they requested a change do not assume it was or will be made. 2. QUESTION: What are my chances of being approved for this loan? Can I know in advance? ANSWER: The loan is relatively easy to get approval for by loan standards. The exact underwriting criteria the SBA is using was leaked by some helpful people (hat tip to u/Sbaleaky) and thus you can have a good understanding what your chances are. Underwriters look for the following: -Minimum Credit Score of 570. They will pull from experian. Close to Vantage 3 model found on nav DOT com or TransUnion numbers on credit karma. They do NOT use FICO. Credit score is largest factor for approval for this loan and no exceptions are made for under 570. -If economic injury was sustained based on formula described in QUESTION 4. If this is a negative number you will be auto declined. (SEE QUESTION 5) The SBA does not consider potential revenue lost or general expenses in the loan amount. -Tax liens or tax issues are NOT a disqualifying factor or taken into consideration for COVID19 disaster. -Business start date must be prior to 1/31/20 -open bankruptcies = Declined. Closed OK. -Arrest for felony < 5 years = Declined -Arrest for misdemeanor < 5 years = Declined -Sole proprietors with delinquent child support > 60 days = Declined -Any business principals with 50% or more ownership with delinquent child support > 60 days = Declined -Your business must pass verification in some way that it is a valid operation. If they can find it on google it will suffice. Otherwise you may have to provide documents to prove it's a legit business. -Your business type must not be on the list for ineligible business activity. See list on FAQ. -All owners on application must be either US citizens or Permanent Residents. E-2 Investor visa is NOT eligible and any attempts to appeal or add a co-borrower who is a citizen or LPR will be unsuccessful. Corporations, Partnerships, and Limited Liability Entities (LLE): Alien-owned corporations, partnerships, and LLEs properly registered and licensed in the state where the disaster occurred are eligible. If any member, partner, or shareholder, owning 20 percent or more of the applicant business is in the USA they must be a qualified alien. If the alien resides outside the USA an exception may be made. 3. QUESTION: I received a decline letter for “Business activity not eligible”. What can I do? ANSWER: EIDL has a list of restricted business categories, if your type is NOT on this list and you still received this letter you may have been improperly classified. The following applicants are not eligible for EIDL assistance.
7-Eleven Franchise Stores, despite what corp office says. (advance is OK)
Lending or Investment Concerns (except for real estate investments held for rental)
Multi-level Sales Distribution (Pyramid) Concerns c. Speculative Activities d. Non-profit Organizations that are not considered a Private Non-Profit
Consumer and Marketing Cooperatives. However, other cooperatives and small agricultural cooperatives meeting applicable size standards are eligible f. Not a small business concern (except for PNP of any size) g. Gambling Concerns. Concerns that derive more than one-third of their annual gross revenue from legal gambling activities.
Casinos, Racetracks, Etc. Businesses whose purpose for being is gambling (such as casinos, racetracks, poker parlors, etc.) are not eligible for EIDL assistance regardless of their ability to meet the one-third criteria established for otherwise eligible concerns.
Loan packagers who derives more than one-third of their annual volume from the preparation of applications seeking financial assistance from SBA
Political or Lobbying Concerns.
Pawn shops, when 50 percent or more of previous year’s income was derived 50 30 9 71 Effective Date: May 31, 2018 from interest
Real Estate Developers. Establishments primarily engaged in subdividing real property into lots and developing it for resale on their own account.
Life Insurance Companies.
Concerns Engaged in Illegal Activities (as defined by Federal guidelines). p. Government-owned concerns, except for businesses owned or controlled by a Native American tribe.
Concerns with Principals Incarcerated, on Parole or Probation: remain ineligible if the parole or probation is lifted solely because it is an impediment to obtaining a loan.
Concerns engaged in live performances of, or the Sale of Products, Services, of a Prurient Sexual Nature.
Businesses considered as hobbies.
Concerns Involved in Change in Ownership Situations: Concerns which had a substantial change of ownership (more than 50 percent) after the impending economic injury became apparent, and no contract for sale existed prior to that time are ineligible .
4. QUESTION: How is the loan amount calculated? How can I request a specific amount? ANSWER: There is no way to request a specific amount, the eligible amount is calculated automatically by formula based on your inputs. There are three known formulas:
Standard Small Business: Revenue minus COGS divided by 2 minus advance, subject to maximum of 150K
Not for Profit: 6 months operating expenses year prior to 1/31/20
Business that collects rental property income, your offer is calculated by lost rents due to the disaster, not the standard formula. If your offer is lower than expected you may have been wrongly classified into this formula.
Agricultural businesses: 6 months operating expenses year prior to 1/31/20
If the formula results in a negative number or less than your advance you will be declined for "ECONOMIC INJURY NOT SUSTAINED" 5. QUESTION: What is the maximum loan amount? ANSWER: As of last update it is currently 150K cap. This will not change anytime soon and there will be no way to request more at present. The only way to avoid the cap is if your loan was already being obligated prior to the change by the SBA from 500K. If I hear anything new on this it will be updated here. 6. QUESTION: When will I get my portal invite? ANSWER: Portal invites are a fully automated process and not strictly sequential but follow general group patterns. If you see someone that has a higher number than you get a portal invite it does NOT mean you were "passed over". 7. QUESTION: I finally got a portal invite and accepted and submitted an amount. My application says it is "processing", now what? ANSWER: This is when the actual loan process starts and underwriting begins. Your application will be assigned a loan officer for review using the criteria listed in question 2. The exact process is as follows (hat tip u/sbaleaky and u/LOL_Face_69) with the actual stages from start to finish. Keep in mind that once you accept in the portal a number of things are going on behind the scenes, which is why "processing" can take a great deal of time. Once you see a loan amount in your portal, this is NOT a "pre-approved offer". It is simply a potential amount you are eligible for based on the stated formula if you pass underwriting.
Initial Call Needed (credit not ran)
Credit Pulled (waiting for automated portal invitation, this is by far the longest part of the process)
Quoted (received portal invite with an eligible amount)
Offer Accepted (you confirmed and submitted an amount in the portal)
Submitted Deal (waiting to be assigned to a Loan Officer)
LO assigned and makes decision: Declined, Duplicate, Approved
[The following takes place behind the scenes and will not reflect in your portal, but will still say "processing"]
Approved: T2 Rep can now see your loan is approved on their screen. This means the Loan Officer has approved the deal and it is now going to the Senior Loan Officer. If the SLO does not approve the deal then it will go to declined.
Obligating: SLO known as a "team leader" reviews the work of the first LO to ensure everything was done correctly. Once they sign off on the deal the loan is now fully approved. The loan is being sent to the E-Tran system to receive a loan number. The loan has not yet received a loan number from E-Tran while obligating. This is the most common phase where hang ups in "processing" can error called "error in obligating". Usually due to small technical issues or errors in your information that need to be sorted.
Obligated: A loan number from E-Tran has been obtained and now closing documents can be drafted and sent to the borrower. This is when your portal would change from "processing" to approved. There may be a delay between when your offer is obligated to when it actually shows approved. I have seen it happen in as fast as 10 minutes or as long as 12 hours. You can also see approved but not have docs available. Docs will not show up until you get an email with the approval. The delay on this can be a few hours or more.
Funding: Docs are signed and the loan is automatically moved to funding stage to have treasury issue an ACH. This happens very quickly and you should see the ACH sent right after with the funds arriving in 24-48 hours on banking days. At this point you can track the disbursement with your loan number from the docs using CAWEB to see if the ACH has been sent. See CAWEB question.
Funded: Process complete, funds are successfully in your bank account. Congrats
Note: The exception to this process is that some applications which are considered easy (based on unknown factors) to approve are subject to full automation and may go straight to approval bypassing the above steps. This only happens in rare cases. You may also see a status that says, "On-Hold" Amount $0: This status typically is when your loan was temporarily declined and is still in the reconsideration department pending possible reconsideration approval. It most commonly relates to credit based issues or problems pulling your credit report from Experian. 8. QUESTION: I now understand that processing really means "underwriting", but how long will it actually take? What is the normal amount of time? ANSWER: The amount of time it is normal for your portal to say "processing" is highly variable as a hundred different factors are involved behind the scenes. Once you submit for processing you are in queue to be assigned a loan officer**.** If your application has been in underwriting for greater than 20 days it may merit investigate, but not necessarily indicate a problem with your chances of approval. Do NOT panic if it seems "stuck" with no communication from anyone. This is normal.
UPDATE: As of 7/20 the current queue/wait time to be assigned a loan officer, get approved, and have closing docs drafted is 14-18 days. Some are seeing immediate automated approvals same day, this only happens in around 30% of cases. The rest must be manually processed. You are NOT "stuck" if you are still within this time range.
9. QUESTION: Does contacting my congressmen or senator actually work? ANSWER: Yes, the SBA treats congressional inquiry very carefully and will flag and sometimes white glove your application. Often they will assign a special case worker during the process. The important thing is when your local congressional office reaches out they do NOT contact the local district SBA but this email: [[email protected]](mailto:[email protected]). This email is NOT for use by applicants but only official government purposes. 10. QUESTION: Help! I accidentally entered the wrong revenue or COGS on my application and my offer amount was lower than I expected, is it possible to change this? ANSWER: Yes, butonly if you meet the following two conditions:
You should NOT have already accepted an amount and submitted for processing in the portal. *If you already did see note below.
You have documentation to backup the changes such as Federal Tax Returns 2018 or 2019 or P&L Statements. Tax returns are preferred if available but not required if the offer is showing as eligible in the portal.
The important thing here is DO NOT accept the offer in the portal if you need to revise your numbers.
*IF YOU HAVE ALREADY ACCEPTED THE OFFER: Call tier 2 support as soon as you possibly can and ask them to make the following note in your file: Loan Officer, DO NOT approve this file without calling me, the applicant, because my (revenue or COGS) figures are wrong. I have supporting docs to make the changes. Please contact me ASAP. 11. QUESTION: I need to change my Rev or COGS and I already accepted an amount in the portal, Tier 2 told me to do it! Is it too late? Answer: Unfortunately tier 2 is currently giving absolutely terrible advice in this situation. They are telling people to accept the offer in the portal to speak with a loan officer to make the revision. The problem is that once you accept you set the process in motion and then it gets obligated by treasury it is impossible to adjust. The proper time is prior to accepting. Often times loan officers never are needed, never reach out or even read these notes. I see it every day and people are stuck its the "kiss of death" advice. If you already accepted you may have time but would need to work quickly from date of submit. UPDATE: As of 6/15 there is now a way to fix this. See question 13. 12. QUESTION: Who are you, cue378? Can you help me? ANSWER: I am a small business owner sharing the information, strategies, and general knowledge I have gained over the course of 4 months and helping in almost 1000 cases. I do not work at the SBA nor do I have any affiliation with the SBA. Do to an extreme flood of requests for help, I will not be able to answer PM's or chat requests. Some people have asked how they can support my efforts. While I do not ask for donations, another volunteer decided to setup a tip jar in case people want to show their support. To be clear any assistance I offer is entirely free without any expectations. Please note, anything donated prior to contacting me in an effort to gain faster help/special attention won't yield those results, while appreciate your support I keep everything fair to others who don't donate. The tip jar can be found HERE. 13. QUESTION: My loan was obligated, already funded, or I already accepted the amount in the portal. I made a mistake with my COGS or revenue and I am not happy with the amount. Can I change it? ANSWER: As of 6/12 loan modifications are now being allowed. You can contact [[email protected]](mailto:[email protected]) and request a "Loan Modification increase". It is a 3-4 week process that requires documentation. A second loan will be given for the difference from the first one. It will be processed as a 20xx series loan in the old system/portal. For more details email me. Note if you have not yet accepted the offer the normal process is much faster. 14. QUESTION: How do I show support for the volunteers and moderators forEIDL ANSWER: For supporting Cue378, there is a tip jar listed above. If you wish to show support to our community moderators, you may reach out to them direct at u/tahoechick36 and u/Scorpio14534to ask how you can show your appreciation for their time and efforts. It takes a great deal work run the community and they are putting in a near full time effort outside their normal occupations. 15. QUESTION: I received my portal link, but when I go to create an account it just takes me to the login page or I get the error: "The user account has not been confirmed yet. What can be done? ANSWER: If you takes you back to the login screen instead of letting you create an account, try following the steps HERE 16. QUESTION: I was declined for "unsatisfactory credit". What are my options? ANSWER: You have a few options.
You can bring your vantage 3 score over 570 by paying down cards, when you are ready you can request the SBA re-pull your report and reactivate your account via [[email protected]](mailto:[email protected])
*You can request to add a co-borrower that has a higher score than 570 with no open bankruptcy and run their credit to reactivate your application.
*As of July 20th the SBA is no longer allowing the use of a Co-Borrower for reconsideration of an insufficient credit denial. Further details and updates on this situation are available in the threadHERE. 17. QUESTION: What documents are required? Will a loan officer contact me? ANSWER: In many cases no documentation is required and everything is self certified. Most commonly an LO will need to contact you to clarify some things about your business or request specific documents, or confirm your public business presence. In about 1/3 cases you will receive no communication from a loan officer and approvals are automated. For denials you lose self certification ability and you will be required to furnish full documentation. 18. QUESTION: What is the status of the Advance/Grant program? Can I still get a grant? ANSWER: As most of you already know, the EIDL Advance/Grant program has ended and the full 20 billion in funding for the advance has been exhausted. The option has been removed from new applications. Getting funding for the advance as a new applicant at this time will not be possible. For older applications please see this post for more information: https://www.reddit.com/EIDL/comments/hr3l41/eidl_news_714_update_regarding_the_current_status/ 19. QUESTION: What are the eligible uses of EIDL funds? ANSWER: These loans may be used to pay fixed debts, payroll, accounts payable and other bills that can’t be paid because of the disaster’s impact. What are all the possible uses of the funds? The wording ‘obligations that are unable to be met due to lack of revenue’ seems to be a catch all, but how much so? The EIDL working capital loans may be used to pay fixed debts, payroll, accounts payable, and other bills that could have been paid had the disaster not occurred. The loans are not intended to replace lost sales or profits or for expansion. If you have more specific questions on the allowable usage of EIDL funds, one of our moderators, u/Scorpio14534 who is also a licensed professional CPA that is very knowledgeable on this matter is open to email requests. They can be reached here: [[email protected]](mailto:[email protected]) 20. QUESTION: I received a denial letter for the reason "ECONOMIC INJURY NOT SUSTAINED". What does this mean and what can I do? ANSWER: This occurs when the numbers entered on your application for COGS are greater than your revenue. The SBA calculates economic injury based on the formula in question number 4. You can also be denied for this reason if the resulting number is less than your advance amount. Please note that the SBA is only taking into account revenue earned prior to the disaster date of 1/31/20 to calculate your economic injury. If your only revenue was earned after that date as a newer business you may not qualify, but it is possible to use a 12 month projection which you can submit to reconsideration. If the numbers on your application were correct, you would not be eligible for an EIDL. If you made an error you can request an amendment and reactivation of your application. 21. QUESTION: What is CAWEB and how can it help me track my loan disbursement and other status? ANSWER: You can use the Capital Access Finance System to track your EIDL after your documents have been signed and submitted through funding. It allows you to see disbursement status and other details related to your loan. ****Hat tip tou/tahoechick36for this amazing write up*\* Using the Capital Access Finance System to track your EIDL after your documents have been signed and submitted through funding. Visit caweb.sba.gov or click the link at the top of EIDL Setting up an account: You need a SBA Loan # to set up an account - for EIDL it appears on the first page of your documents, in the upper left hand area, and says "SBA Loan # XXXXXXXXXX.” SBA loan #'s are 10 digits. Your Application # will NOT work for account set-up. If you have a PPP Loan, you can use your SBA # for this loan to set up an account. Sometimes this # is easy to figure out, sometimes not. That has to do with an intermediary (like your bank) being involved, but if you can track down an actual SBA Loan #, you can go ahead and get registered without your EIDL loan number.
On the home page click on "Not Enrolled?" in the top left. This takes you to a screen to enter info. You may come to hate this screen, this process is very finicky.
Look at the rules for creating a User ID and Password by clicking on "Rules..." next to the fields.
Write your exact ID & password down somewhere - if you ever get locked out and call the SBA for help, they are going to tell you that Borrowers are not supposed to be able to access CAFS CAWeb. Apparently we still can, so don't make this a big deal or maybe that will change!
For user type - select "borrower" from the drop down menu.
Fill in the highlighted fields with your info. Click on the "ZIP LOOKUP" button after you enter your zip code. This auto populates some other boxes, and registration won't work if you don't do this.
For the country code in the phone number section enter "1" for the United States.
Financial commitment ID is your Loan # - 10 digits.
If you don't have a landline, it has been reported that just entering your mobile number in both fields works. You will have to select 3 of their security questions, enter the Captcha image info, then hit "submit" at the bottom.
If it didn't like the info you have entered, it will give you an error message for what part it didn't like, and you will have to try again, which requires re-entering quite a bit of the information. It's a pain. But if it takes it, you're in! There may be a verification step now as well. Finding your loan on CAWeb
On the caweb homepage, login (if you aren't already), it will be personalized and show your name. You have to scroll down and check the "Agree to Terms" box when you are logging in.
Click on "Borrower" in the top left, then click on "Borrower Search". This should take you to your "Loan List" showing the loan #, borrower name, loan type, amount, and loan status.
PPP loans typically appear as "Active Un-Disbursed" - if your PPP is already funded don't worry about that. Your EIDL will show up as "Disbursed Current" if funds are on their way. It may say something else if you look immediately after you send back you Docs, but it should change pretty quickly. Logging out and back in again will sometimes refresh the status. Loan status will say "Active Un-Disbursed" until Treasury send the funds to your bank, then it changes to "Disbursed Current".
It depends on your bank when they post in your account (same day, next day, time).
If your banking info didn't verify, the transaction will fail to go through, and the status will revert.
If you are not funded within 3-4 banking days, there is likely a problem - check your info in your portal, call the SBA, and then email Cue if needed.
If you click on your loan# in the list, it opens up a page with details about your loan.
There's even a box at the bottom to check if you want electronic account statements only, but if you check that, a warning pops up about "all attached to this loan will be affected by this change", so we recommend not selecting that option just yet.
Hey has anyone been to the formerly known as Treasury casino lately ? If so what games are being played now - i know poker is gone forever and the wheels is gone, what other table games are playing and what rubbish are they doing regards "social distancing" etc?
CHAPTER 6 Astrapian City SpenceSpecter Journal: Entry - ??? It's been days and weeks since the Castle of the Valkyrie Queen crashed into the surface of the earth. Mostly I don't know where the heck are we... However I’m back to the Clan... There is no place like Home... I never thought that this place can look so good. The Specter Clan did a fantastic job in making it secure.
Specter says "Darkcrow, can you walk now?" "Well... With the Mechanic's help, I can walk, but it's going to take awhile before my leg is healed completely." He replied Spencer sits on his bed and think about what can he do.
Melody interview with my Clanmates, How did she found Specter also known as Me the Legendary Demon-Hunter. One of the elf girl said "OMG! HOW DID YOU FOUND THE REAL SPECTER BLACKWING" and she continued ask questions for an extended period of time. Melody said "Did you know about Me and Specter? I'm his Girlfriend." The Elf Girl said "OMG! Me and my friend have been waiting for this day for years! We've been Specter fans from the beginning! Sooooo... You guys are together now?" Melody replied "Well maybe... I do love Specter, He so cool and edgy..." The Elf Girl said "AHHHH, She's soooo Lucky to have him!" and they decided to scream in romantic excitements Melody blushed and stopped the rest of her reply. Roger legs has fixed and he gone to trained outside in the clan with the clan mechanics. The clan mechanics added some new features of weapon in his robotic hand. Also the clan warriors added some new features of armor on his robotic body. After the upgrades, Roger is ready for combat for future missions. The Clan Warrior said "This is the new metal coats for your new body, It can protect you from Corrosion and Bullets!” Roger will be a great robot warrior for the Specter Clan! Lily, well she is now awake and has a interview with the knights on the other kingdom about the crash of the Castle of the Queen Valkyrie. She also has a chat with the Mechanic's of the Elf Clan about her motor skills. Spencer said "Yeah, well it's good that she enjoy herself and not think about the sad stuff." Victor, on the other hand, he kinda problem in his past-life as a Gambler. He can't stop thinking about it, he even tried to get the Specter help him to get cured, but they couldn't help. Victor is a total greed loving Magi-Caster and I liked him... But his problem, is he attached on a past life. What is he hiding? The next day after training and having fun, the Clans resume their meeting.
Specter says "Axelegore kill my partner Lurk and I have to avenge him for good. But i need the 7 orbs to combine into "The Elemental Orb" "The Elemental orb is a powerful magic artifact. It was used by the 6 knights of Lairon, but the creation of the Elemental orb is Unknown..." Specter explained the story Specter says "Gizmo, The Small Chimera Furry who the former of the Axelegore Orders and has reveal the story of Axelegore Plan and the 6 knights but he died due to the battle with Cupiditas in The Castle of the Valkyrie Queen..." Gizmo is the Chimera Furry with a chip on his shoulder, but he has a bit of a hero complex. I can relate to that. Specter says "We got the 5 orbs and the next one is the Electric Orb." The Mechanic's look at the 5 orbs and then to Specter. "We can make a Orb." One of the Mechanic's Replied. Specter says "You can't unless you got them all 12 of them..." One of the Mechanic's look at each other and said "What, do we do?" "Well... We got the 5 orbs correct?" "Correct! Specter says "Victor, did you seen the Electric Orb before?" "Yes, I saw it in the treasury before all of this chaos broke loose." Victor said with regret. "We have to get it back then."
Victor said "Mostly the Electric Orb was on Astrapian City, The most futuristic city with full of Money and Violence. It was found by the mayor for some unknown reasons. "It's know for power the entire city." "Do you remember where?" "Yes, It was in the Empire Astrapia State Building." "Can we get it?" Victor said "It's a risky try..." "We have to take down the entire state security force with all the Mercenaries and military there to defend it.” Victor said "The mayor is worked for Axelegore, His name is unknown but the people called him The Black Dragon"
Specter says "Black Dragon, Is that the 4th orders?" "Yes they are, they were created recently. but yeah, that person is very dangerous.
List of Axelegore Orders The Sky Crasher Leader: Gruz "They are the one, Sky Pirates who try to fly by shooting and cast magic to destroy all of the traveling ship and make them to banned traveling with airship all over the world and make their home." The Dark Mechanicus Leader: Cogwheel "They are the ones who have all invented the really big and dangerous machine for the warfare and combat that does most of what the Dark Mechanicus does. The Phantom Cultist Leader: Light "They are the ones who use their magic to battle and cast through the battlefield. They are the magical and powerful of all the orders. The Black Dragon Leader: The Black Dragon. "This is the most unknown order, they are invisible to everyone except other members and seem to only be used as assassins by the other orders."
Specter says "They are one tough Orders..." "We can try but the attempt is most dangerous and failed to do this." Darkcrow said. Victor said "We are ready to go then, let's head to the city." Specter says "Right, we got a world to save!" Victor and you all head to the city and begin your attempt to save the world.
The Astrapian City is a miles away from my Clanhouse and my Village but it's a very long walk to prepare for the Electric Orb... I packed up some food as well as the Orbs also my old dagger and my ropes...
Specter says "Where can i use the ropes for?" The ropes are for climbing big and small rocks. so, you can try climbing some nearby rocks. You find a few rocks you can climb near your current location. Specter says "Well, i have to use the ropes or the dagger later until we headed to Astrapian City..." You begin to climb the rocks while packing the Orbs in your pack. While climbing, you accidentally drop one of the Orbs.
Victor grab and said "I got it!" and after a quick examination of the Orb, he said "Yes, it's still good!" You all continue to climb rocks until one of the rocks you are climbing is slightly wet. After you climb a thousands steps. You see a great view and found Astrapian City. "Woah..." he whisper. "We have to be very careful now, we are in their lands and they may have powerful fighters." Victor says.
Specter says "You got it!" Victor says "Right then, let's start heading to the city and quietly drop our pace until we find a good place to sleep." You all continue your journey to Astrapian City.
Astrapian City A cyberpunk world where everyone is a gambler, perverts, hackers, creepers and rogue. "Everything is illegal is legal" is their motto! Interesting Fun Fact! Astrapian City has the highest crime rate in Lairon Region! (Surprised?) The buildings are tall and the streets are very wide. There is a large park area in the center of the city. The city is ruled by a The Black Dragon and his council of advisors.
Specter says "What a bunch of rogue..." Just a bunch of gamblers and perverts though. We should ask for a job at the gambling hall... Well, looks like we are already in a lot of trouble.
Victor said "Those guys can break a skull on you for good!" which scared you a bit. You all go into a dark alley way to rest for the night. Roger sleeps while standing up and Victor get a little too close to your personal space before going to sleep.
Specter says "This is kinda creepy place..." The three of you look around and see if there is any potential danger. "Yeah, this place is creepy..." Victor says in a low voice. You all feel your weapons ready just in case.
Well it's just a drunk guy who drank a lot of beer... and passed out. Still, might be best to keep an eye on him. The Six all proceed to sleep and wait for midnight to start to find the Electric Orb.
Specter wake up and their items got stolen! They all wake up at the same time and check your stuff.
To his surprise, his weapons are gone. He look at Victor, he's still asleep, he whisper to him that his weapons are missing.
Specter says "Damnit! Victor wake up our stuff is gone!" Victor slowly wake up and feel his stuff. "Hmm, my things are gone too..." "Well I guess we might as well get up..." Specter says "Where the thief at!" You all notice the drunk guy sleeping at the end of the alley. You wonder if he is the one who took your stuff.
Then you wonder if killing him is going to make things worse for you.
Specter says "Hey, you drunk head! Where our stuff!" The drunk guy wakes up and immediately realizes something is wrong. You all wonder if it would be better to wait for him to pass out again. However, he starts running in your direction. Specter says "Hey, that the Thief! Get him!" You all quickly begin chasing the guy. You try to grab his leg, however he eludes your grasp. By now other people have seen the commotion and are also taking an interest. Specter says "Where the orbs and our stuff!" The Drunk guy starts running in random directions trying to get away from you all. The drunkard runs into a dead end alley and the Specters and you all wonder what to do next. Specter says "I tell you one last time! Where is our stuff!" Victor then says something that surprises you all. "We might as well let him go and get our stuff back, he is just a little drunk right now..."
The drunk guy return the weapons and the orb back to Specter and run away from him And Specter said "God! I hate this city!" So, the thief was not punished, but you are all satisfied that he will not do it again. But you realize there something over the dead end alley wall. It's the Empire Astrapia State Building! Making you all think... "Hey, I thought that...!" Victor says something that surprises you all. The Empire Astarpia State Building One of the Tallest Building in Astarpian City. It's also the Tallest Building in Entire Lairon Region with over 150th floors and powered and controlled by the Electric Orb with 1,000,000 gigavolts per years! It was named Astrapia State Building by Victor as a joke for the Mayor.
Specter says "That's the Empire Astrapia State Building, or should i called E.A.S.B" "So Victor, what are you going to do with the Empire Astrapia State Building?" "I'm going to make a profit of course!" "Wait but isn't it illegal to use?
Victor said "Have you read the motto of Astarpian City?" "No?" "It's Everything is illegal is legal!" Victor then said "If you know what you are doing, it's perfectly legal to use.
Specter says "What kind of motto is that..." "Indeed." "How stupid can the government of this city get? (Sigh) Well, we can come back for the Building later, I guess. “Are you questioning my intelligence?" "No, but I’m asking you a question. Darkcrow can't stand up yet. but he found a way to enter the Empire Astrapia State Building. There two girls employees are entering the dressing room at the back door. And he saw one of the mafia with a VIP pass entering the E.A.S.B entrance door. Specter says "Darkcrow, What's your plan?" "Plan? I don't have a plan, yet." "Just wait, maybe the best way is to..." Melody and Lily interrupts Darkcrow plan. Darkcrow said "Geez! What you doing here..." They both replies at the same time "Specter's orders!" Lily said. "We're here to escort you to the Empire Astrapia State Building! Melody said. Darkcrow complain. "Specter!" Specter says "Well.. I don't even know... because I like some girls escort our team..."
Darkcrow punched Specter in a shoulder. "Ow! Why you punch me for?" "I don't know... I’m just pissed at something right now!" Darkcrow secretly doesn't want the girls joining his team mission. One of the gang at outside at the entrance of the E.A.S.B said to the gambler who want to gamble in E.A.S.B "Hey man, Give me your money or we'll beat you up!" Gang beat the Gambler to his death and drop his VIP pass. "What the?" Victor said when he saw the crime. "Well, it's obvious now that this is a perfect place to steal some stuff!" Specter said.
Specter steal the VIP pass.
"Alright team, we need to get out this stinky alley and find the Electric Orb!" Victor nods. You all take a good look outside the Empire Astrapia State Building. But the guards blocking you and said "May i see your pass, please?
Specter present his VIP pass.
You and the rest of your team pass the guards while they say "Wow! You're really lucky, man! Welcome to the Empire Astrapia State Building!" Empire Astrapia State Building A huge skyscraper. While you're on the 40th floor, you can see the nice views of Astarpian City. This means that there should be some spare items around here somewhere.
Specter says "We need to register a room to rest up for the plan."
And you're all surprised to see that this city has a hotel on top of the sky city. Of course, it's the Empire Hotel Astarpia State Building. The hotel room has a very luxury bedroom, kitchen, and a very large living room. A butler awaits your orders and ready to serve you at all times. You can make people think you're really rich by just telling them your name is Master Specter. The butler announced the Black Dragon has a ceremony at E.A.S.B event hall. Tonight at 12:00 AM "Be there or we'll kill you!" "You bet, boys!" Victor said. You nod at each other. "Go get some rest of the guys, we're heading to the ceremony." Specter ask. "Yes, Master Specter." The butler leave your hotel room.
Specter says "Geez! What we gonna do to get the Electric Orb!"
Victor says "I don't know." Spencer thinks for a moment. Roger says "Does anyone remember where the location of the location was? Victor said "Basically it's on the top to the tower." Spencer stands up "Let's get to the 100th floor!"
Specter says "But, how we gonna get the Electric Orb without getting caught by Black Dragon and his guards"
Specter hears and saw in the peephole. About those Bunny-Suit waitress talking in the hallway about The Black Dragon Identity. The one waitress said "Did you know that he is working with Axelegore. That's why we should sit next to the VIP area in the event hall." Another waitress replies "Well, I heard he is the head of the Black Dragon Order.”
Specter says "Melody, Lily. I think you gotta need a distraction as the Bunny Girls Waitress at The Black Dragon."
"Haha, good idea!" Victor laughs. Spencer says "Victor, let's use your trick card to open the control room."
Specter says "Darkcrow, Roger. You guys up to make money at the Casino for me."
Darkcrow said "You serious, man?" Roger said "Yeah, I'm programmed to never ever to do gambling!" Victor says "Well, you can help me at the Control Room instead." Darkcrow said "Really, this is my worst mission of my life!
Specter says "I bet you, all the money from the Casino is yours!
Darkcrow agreed with his greedy attitude "Deal!" Melody replied "Hey Specter, why do I really need to distract The Black Dragon with the Bunny Suits anyways?" Spencer says "I think the plan is, you seduce him with the bunny suit to prevent him from calling the guards, so we can get the orb from the room. also you with Lily!
Specter says "Lily, on the other hand is also has a Magi-Ability: Lilith"
Linda "Lily" Lilith Skyhound, The Demon Pilot in the Sky, Specter Ex-Girlfriend. Magi-Ability: Lilith She can turn into a lilith or a succubus and any type of class such as Knight, Wizard or Cleric anything she wants! According to her beautiful and seductive dress of the entire female class! She can take the job of a magical-demon to be tricked actively by the Black Dragon, but she is not stupid and agrees with Specter. Lily said "I agreed with the plans of Specter, also if I wears the bunny suits, I can turn my class Pilot into Magician! " Spencer: "Yes, I think you can do it. Lily said "Melody, are you doing this?" Melody replied "Of course :)" Lily said "Beautiful, let's get ready!" 11:55 PM before the shows started… The plan has already started at E.A.S.B. Lily and Melody are in the dressing room where they going to serve some wine to the mayor also known as The Black Dragon, Darkcrow is on his black suits and got some chips and some cheating cards to his pocket. While Specter, Roger and Victor wearing a suit and they now going to the 100th floor. The Bunny Waitress Team is on their way to the Casino as well, Specter decide not to tell them of the plan, they will probably just do the distraction. Darkcrow is on his poker table with some Mafia around him. He gulp nervously... and he got the sweat all over him and said "Oh, hello there!" The mafia has a menacing look all over him! "Do you know how to play game?" The game master asks politely. "Why yes! I got a huge game of 5D-Jacks going on right now! Come let do this!" Darkcrow says happily. Darkcrow sweating nerverously and wished "Man, i wish Roger should join me in this Casino! Meanwhile, Victor, Specter and Roger enter the control room... Spencer uses his magical powers, but no one is around, in fact the room seems deserted.
Specter says "No one here..." "It's empty!" Victor said with a creepy laugh. "Let's get the work done!" "What happens if the boss comes back?" Roger asks. Specter says "Well, we have to stay focus." Suddenly, The Electric Orb is gone!
"Where is it?" Victor asks. "I don't know, someone must have took it." Roger says.
Specter says "It's must be that Black Dragon Guy at the Event Hall!"
"We have to find it!" Victor says. "Orb's power can be accessed by anyone." Roger points out. Specter call Melody in her small microphone on her Bowtie. "Melody! Lily! The Black Dragon got the Electric Orb!” "We're in the begin in the ceremony now!" She replied. "Got it! Thanks Blueberry!" He replied. "We're on our way, we'll be there soon!" Roger said. "Huh, whoever he is, he must be a powerful and intelligent guy..." Victor mutters.
Specter end the call with Melody.
and Victor said "You called your Girlfriend, Blueberry?" "Yeah, she's a big hero around the campus..." Specter said with a cheeky smile. "Heh, well alright, I guess it's just as well that we have you along then." Meanwhile at Melody... Melody said "The Black Dragon got the Electric Orb!" "That's great!" Lily replied. "Let's get going, we have to meet The Black Dragon in the ceremony!" Melody said. "OK!" She agreed. The show announcer said "And now, the biggest guest! we like to announce..." PLEASE WELCOME! THE MAYOR OF ASTARPIA CITY AND OWNWR OF E.A.S.B! THE BLACK DRAGON! The Black Dragon has a shiny black silky tuxedo and a sharp white hair that cover his one eyes also with a black fedora and a Skull staff on his hand. He looks like Specter. "Hello Everyone! Thank you for attending my biggest event so far!" He has a microphone in his hand. Dragon said "This ceremony about my greatest city of them all and my biggest power in this city!" Then, the Dragon begin to speaks... "Now, I want you know that this event WILL be a historical moment! Axelegore, He one of my working partner with this work and this city, Our powers will rise above the world! I make this promise! Now, this isn't a speech this time, this is a question and answer session. If you don't ask me, you don't sit at the table! I HAD THIS! BABY!" he present the Electric Orb! The Crowd gasp and say "WOW!" "Now, ask me a question, and i will answer!" The Dragon said while smiling. "This Orb can powered our City to the Unlimited Powers!" That mean More Crimes, More Violence’s and More Deaths in this Death Arena for those weaklings heroes who tries to restore the Orb! Now it's your turn to be the Dragon! "Why didn't you restored the other Orbs?" A Man asked. "It's a long story..." Dragon began to tell his tale... Dragon disagree the tale "But, it's a secret!" "Don't worry about it!" He replied. "But..." The Man said. "IT'S A TRUTH, NOT A BIG DEAL AND I'M NOT GOING TO TELL YOU!" He replied angrily!" "I WANT TRUTH NOW!" He yelled to him! Dragon yelled "OK, I'll reveal the truth, WHOEVER SHOOT THAT MOTHERFUCKING MAN HEAD WIN FOR A THOUSANDS BUCKS!" The man said "Wait, please no!" Then he turned to the Crowd and said "I'm sorry for my actions, I'm new at this and it was a mistake to come back here!" Dragon said "IT'S TOO LATE! EVERYONE DRAW!" Everyone shoot at the Man Head and lead him in the painful death with a thousands bullet shot through the entire body... The Black Dragon is a very powerful and dangerous man with a huge killing streak. Surprisingly, he dislikes to talk about his past. Dragon said "What a Bloodbath! Guards, Send this man corpse to the Cremation Room. Before those grubs eaten him alive. Also here some thousands bucks whoever kill that guy!" He throw the Bill towards to the Crowd! Everyone starts to grab the Bill! Dragon laughed insanely "Haha! I loved this city!" Melody was serious and said "What a dangerous man..." Suddenly, Dragon invited "Who's that pretty woman? You want to join us for some drinks?" He pointed his staff to Melody... Melody accepted, this is some kind of amazing thing... Melody said "Me?" "Yes, come sit next to me!" Dragon replied. "Really?" She replied back. "Yes, really! Don't I know you?" Dragon questioned. Melody walk down the stairs and sit with Dragon but Lily started sit with Dragon, But he said "Stop! NOT YOU!" Lily said "But..." Dragon replied "Aren't you the blue haired bunny-suit woman that I pointed to her? Lily said "Yes, I'm her partner." "Oh, you look prettier! Come sit next to me…” Dragon agreed her info! Melody and Lily were sitting next to Dragon… They talked about life as the mayor of Astarpian City and then he said. "So tell me, have you ever loved a boy before?" Melody reply with embarrassment "Wha.. What? No! Please, who would love a girl like me? Dragon said "Tell me, have you ever loved a boy before?" "Seriously?" She replied. "Serious" He replied. "No, why would I?" Melody replied again. "Tell me, have you?" Dragon replied again. "No! Melody replied. Dragon said "Well, this is your lucky day for you. Because I'm here!" The next moment, Dragon started to stare at Lily very close... Then he said "Hmmm, you're not quite pretty enough to be a succubus, but you could make an excellent-" Lily said "What?" Dragon interrupted him "I was going to say you could make an EXCELLENT PAWN ... or MEAT..." Lily ask the Crowd "WHAT?!" Meanwhile... Specter, Roger and Victor is now on the Casino and saw Darkcrow won a lot of pokers chips bets from the mafia. The mafia are well known defeated and broke! Darkcrow said "FUCK YEAH! FIFTY TIMES IN THE ROW!" He high fived the Crowd surrounding him. Roger said "Let's stake our winnings here!"
Specter says "Yo! Dark! Are you done here?" Darkcrow said "Yeah! I won 50 times in a row!" Victor and Specter got some chips from Darkcrow. "Victor, what do you think of Darkcrow's winning? Victor, disagree his winning streaks and said "Amateur! I won 100 times in this Casino!" Darkcrow look confused and said "What? You're joking!" Victor said "I swear to God! I'm the best Gambler here! Darkcrow said "OH YEAH?"
"Yeah, you're still an amateur." Victor said and walk away. Specter said "Let's stake our chips here! Dark shouted "Oh yeah! Victor, For now on, You're now my rival!" and high fived him. Victor said "Hah, you and your 50 winning-streak in the row. Enough with the High Fives! Let's play Poker right here! Right now!"
Specter says "Enough! You Greedy Rats! We're have to find Melody and Lily!" "Oh, sorry! Let's go!" Darkcrow said. They left the casino room to find Melody and Lily and Darkcrow came back to get the chips "Sorry, but the chips coming with us!" He steal the chips and put them in the loot bag!
Meanwhile... Melody and Lily trying their best to distract Dragon! "Hey you! Stop staring at my butt!" Lily said. "Oh wait, are you talking to me?" Dragon replied. "Yeah, you better stop that." she replied. "Or what?" he replied. Melody try to sneaky steal the Electric Orb... and Dragon caught her! "What are you doing?! You trying to shock me?" he said in annoyance. "NO! But you have to let us go." Melody replied. "Oh yeah, I should let you go..." Dragon said. She smiled. "NOT, IF I GIVE YOU A KISS!" Dragon laughed insanity. “No, No, No, No!” Melody tries to run for it! He ran towards her and kissed her. Suddenly, Specter saw Dragon kissing Melody in her lips... Dragon saw Specter and said "Aw... was that your Girlfriend that I kissed her in front of you?"
Specter says Rghh..." Specter stare at Dragon angrily and completely cover with red haze and aura in his body! "Should have waited until we're alone!" Dragon now knows. Melody tries to free herself from Dragon, but he is too strong! “By the way, as the mayor of the Astarpian City, She is now shall will be my QUEEN!” Dragon shouted! Specter says "YOU GET AWAY MY GIRLFRIEND, YOU FUCKING FREAK!" In his demonic voice! He dash towards Dragon and gave him a punch in the face cause his skull break and then another one, and then another one! But Dragon won't go down! He punch back, and then several of them! Specter summon the dead, demon and ghosts from out of nowhere to be his ally to protect from the Crowd! Several Ghosts and Demons started to appear around the area! More ghosts, skeletons and demon appeared to back them up! "Come on Specters! Do your thing!" Darkcrow orders. Dragon cast his mysterious Magi, and blew many specters away, including the crowd! Grim and evil spirits are powerful indeed! The crowd shoot the dead with their Tommy Gun. But no effects to the dead! The ghost slice through the crowd! The crowd died instantly! Specter cast his powerful weapon Hades Scythe! Dragon casted an spell against him, but Specter block the attack! Then, he used his weapon, Hades Scythe to cut Dragon's arm! It was bleeding! The battle now begin to heating up! Dragon said "Damnit! Where that Rogue come from!" Then, in a flash of light, Dragon see a man standing there holding a very large scythe! He was tall, with dark shadow aura and long red hair! Specter says "Dragon, You're souls is mine... AND I WON’T FORGIVE YOU!!!" He swing his scythe and Dragon casted his own Magi against him, but the Specter easily blocked the attack! "Let's make one thing clear, before I kill you!" Specter ignore his orders and attack his wrath! “IT’S TOO LATE, TO PAY YOUR CONSEQUENCE!” He attacked him, with several ghosts, skeletons, and demons supporting him! Dragon casted some sort of shield against Specter attack! The clash of the powerful auras shock both fighters and their minions!
Suddenly, Dragon cast Nova! Nova appears to be a powerful explosion of light and sound! He can barely hear anything, but he see everything! Demons, Specters and even some ghosts blown away instantly! “NGAHHHHH! DRAGOOOOON!” Specter shouted! Dragon is retreating with his cutted right arm and left the Electric Orb behind. Dragon run for his life and got collapse on the ground and Suddenly, the mysterious pirate grab him and take him to the familiar ship. Dragon said "Thanks for saving me, Gruz..." Gruz reply "No problem, but I think it's time we stop this little fight. The other group is ready to retreat this rogue wrath." "Hmm, let me just finish this fight, and then we can attack together!" Dragon replied Gruz said "I'm afraid, you can't do that! Step on it, Sizzling Sisters! We have to retreat!" The Sky Crasher ship retreat to the another place instead of the E.A.S.B. Meanwhile... Melody and her teams trying to stop Specter wrath, Specter walking down the hallway to the exit to find Dragon! Melody said "Specter! Just listen to me!" But he's not listening to anyone. He's too focused on killing Dragon cowering at the Sky Crasher ship. Melody said "Come on! Specter! Just listen to me!" She grab him and kiss him!
Specter heart is filled with love... He calmed down the Wrath... The shadows aura began to fade away.. Specter return to his former self... Melody take back her right hand away from him and just stood there awkwardly "Uh... Just let me come with you..." He said sadly. She said "Sorry Specter." Specter says "Melody..." She turn around and she run away. She left him standing alone.
Meanwhile in Dragon... Gruz said "Dragon, I can't believe that Specter Boy, destroyed your headquarter!" Dragon said "Heh! I know..." Gruz said "I take it you want revenge?" Dragon said "Of course..." Gruz nods and hands over a small black orb. Gruz, The Captain of the Sky Crasher Magi-Ability: Chaos The Black Dragon, Leader of the Black Dragon Magi-Ability: Omega Gruz: He can cast every Dark Magi from every Dark Magi-User. Dragon: While Dragon on the Other Hands. He has the power to cast every Magi whatever he likes! Gruz: Well, Axelegore is on Death Island with the Entire Orders also aren't you wanna stay with your crew at Death Island first, It's for resting for the battle you and that Specter Boy? Dragon: Yes, fly your ship to Death Island. Gruz: WELL THEN, OF WE GO TO DEATH ISLAND! END OF CHAPTER 6 You have reached to Chapter 6
What kind of drivel is this? I thought Philip Roth was supposed to be a """"""literery""""""(((writer)))?!
Call me Smitty. That's what everybody else called me--the ballplayers, the bankers, the bareback riders, the baritones, the bartenders, the bastards, the best-selling writers (excepting Hem, who dubbed me Frederico), the bicyclists, the big game hunters (Hem the exception again), the billiards champs, the bishops, the blacklisted (myself included), the black marketeers, the blonds, the bloodsuckers, the bluebloods, the bookies, the Bolsheviks (some of my best friends, Mr. Chairman--what of it!), the bombardiers, the bootblacks, the bootlicks, the bosses, the boxers, the Brahmins, the brass hats, the British (Sir Smitty as of '36), the broads, the broadcasters, the broncobusters, the brunettes, the black bucks down in Barbados (Meestah Smitty), the Buddhist monks in Burma, one Bulkington, the bullfighters, the bullthrowers, the burlesque comics and the burlesque stars, the bushmen, the bums, and the butlers. And that's only the letter B, fans, only one of the Big Twenty-Six! Why, I could write a whole book just on the types beginning with X who have called out in anguish to yours truly--make it an encyclopedia, given that mob you come across in one lifetime who like to tell you they are quits with the past. Smitty, I've got to talk to somebody. Smitty, I've got a story for you. Smitty, there is something you ought to know. Smitty, you've got to come right over. Smitty, you won't believe it but. Smitty, you don't know me but. Smitty, I'm doing something I'm ashamed of. Smitty, I'm doing something I'm proud of. Smitty, I'm not doing anything--what should I do, Smit? In transcontinental buses, lowdown bars, high-class brothels (for a change of scenery, let's move on to C), in cabarets, cabanas, cabins, cabooses, cabbage patches, cable cars, cabriolets (you can look it up), Cadillacs, cafes, caissons, calashes (under the moon, a' course), in Calcutta, California, at Calgary, not to be confused with Calvary (where in '38 a voice called "Smitty!"--and Smitty, no fool, kneeled), in campaniles, around campfires, in the Canal Zone, in candlelight (see B for blonds and brunettes), in catacombs, rounding the Cape of Good Hope, in captivity, in caravans, at card games, on cargo ships, in the Caribbean, on carousels, in Casablanca (the place and the movie, wherein, to amuse Bogey, I played a walk-on role), in the Casbah, in casinos, castaway off coasts, in castles (some in air, some not), in Catalonia (with Orwell), Catania, catatonia, in catastrophes, in catboats, in cathedrals, in the Catskills (knaidlach and kreplach with Jenny G.--I taste them yet!), in the Caucasus (Comrade Smitty--and proud of it, Mr. Chairman!), in caves, in cellars, in Central America, in Chad, in a chaise longue (see under B burlesque stars), in chalets, in chambers, in chancery, in a charnel house (a disembodied voice again), in Chattanooga (on Johnny's very choo-choo), in checkrooms, in Cherokee country, in Chicago--look, let's call it quits at Christendom, let's say there, that's been Smitty's beat! Father confessor, marital adviser, confidant, straight man, Solomon, stooge, psychiatrist, sucker, sage, go-between, medicine man, whipping boy, sob sister, debunker, legal counselor, loan service, all-night eardrum, and sober friend--you name it, pick a guise, any guise, starting with each and every one of the Big Twenty-Six, and rest assured, Smitty's worn that hat on one or two thousand nights in his four score and seven on this billion-year-old planet in this trillion-year-old solar system in this zillion-year-old galaxy that we have the audacity to call "ours"! O what a race we are, fans! What a radiant, raffish, raggedy, rakish, rambunctious, rampaging, ranting, rapacious, rare, rash, raucous, raunchy, ravaged, ravenous, realistic, reasonable, rebellious, receptive, reckless, redeemable, refined, reflective, refreshing, regal, regimented, regrettable, relentless, reliable, religious, remarkable, remiss, remorseful, repellent, repentant, repetitious (!!!!), reprehensible, repressed, reproductive, reptilian, repugnant, repulsive, reputable, resentful, reserved, resigned, resilient, resistant, resistible, resourceful, respectable, restless, resplendent, responsible, responsive, restrained, retarded, revengeful, reverential, revolting, rhapsodical, rhythmical, ribald, rickety, ridiculous, righteous, rigorous, riotous, risible, ritualistic, robustious (adj. Archaic or Humorous [pick 'em], meaning "rough, rude or boisterous," according to N.W.), roguish, rollicking, romantic, rompish, rotten, rough-and-ready, rough-and-tumble, rough-housing, rowdyish, rude, rueful, rugged, ruined, rummy (chiefly Brit, don'cha know. Slang odd; queer), rundown, runty, ruthless race! A' course that's just one man's opinion. Fella name a' Smith; first name a' Word. And just who is Word Smith? Fair enough. Short-winded, short-tempered, short-sighted as he may be, stiff-jointed, soft-bellied, weak-bladdered, and so on down to his slippers, anemic, arthritic, diabetic, dyspeptic, sclerotic, in dire need of a laxative, as he will admit to the first doctor or nurse who passes his pillow, and in perpetual pain (that's the last you'll hear about that), he's not cracked quite yet: if his life depended on it, the man in the street could not name three presidents beginning with the letter J, or tell you whether the Pope before this one wore glasses or not, so surely he is not about to remember Word Smith, though it so happened old W.S. cracked a new pack of Bicycles with more than one Chief Exec, one night nearly brought down the republic by cleaning out the entire cabinet, so that at morn--pink peeking over the Potomac, you might say--the Secretary of the Treasury had to be restrained by the Secretary of the Interior from dipping his mitt in the national till to save his own shirt at stud, in a manner of speaking. Then there are the Popes. Of course no poker, stud, straight, or draw, with Pontiffs, other than penny ante, but rest assured, Smitty here in his heyday, kneepans down on terra firma, has kissed his share of rings, and if no longer up to the kneeling-down, still has starch enough left in these half-palsied lips for tasting the papal seal and (if there should be any takers) touching somewhat tumescent flesh to the peachier parts of the softer sex, afore he climbs aboard that sleeper bound for Oblivion. Chucklin': "George, what time she due at Pearly Gates?" Shuf-flin': "Don' you worry none, Mistuh Smitty, I call ya' in time fo' you to shave up and eat a good heffy breakfass' fo' we gets dere." "If we gets there, George. Conductor says we may all be on a through train, from what he hears." "Tru'? To where, Mistuh Smitty? De end of de line?" (Chorus behind, ahummin' and astrummin', "Tru' train, tru' train, choo-choo on tru', I wanna choo-choo on home widout delay!") "Seems there isn't any 'end' to this line, George." Scratchin' his woolly head: "Well, suh, day don' say nuttin' 'bout dat in de schedule." "Sure they do, old George, down in the fine print there: 'Stops only to receive passengers.'" "Which tru' train dat, Mistuh Smitty?" "Through train bound for Oblivion, George." " 'Oblivion'? Dat don't sound lak no stop--dat de name of a little girl!" ("Tru' train, tru' train, lem-me choo-choo on home!") Smitty! Prophet to porters, padre to pagans, peacemaker for polygamists, provider for panhandlers, probation officer to pickpockets, pappy to parricides, parent to prostitutes, "Pops" to pinups, Paul to pricks, plaintalker to pretenders, parson to Peeping Toms, protector to pansies, practical nurse to paranoids--pal, you might say, to pariahs and pests of every stripe, spot, stigma, and stain, or maybe just putty in the paws of personae non gratae, patsy in short to pythons. Not a bad title that, for Smitty's autobio. Or how's about Poet to Presidents? For 'twasn't all billiards on the Biggest Boss's baize, sagas of sport and the rarest of rums, capped off with a capricious predawn plunge in the Prez's pool. Oh no. Contract bridge, cribbage, canasta, and casino crony, sure; blackjack bluffer and poker-table personality, a' course, a' course; practiced my pinochle, took 'em on, one and all, at twenty-one; suffered stonily (and snoozed secretly) through six-hour sieges of solitaire, rising to pun when they caught me napping, "Run out of patience, Mr. P.?"; listen, I played lotto on the White House lawn, cut a First Child for Old Maid in the Oval Office on the eve of national disaster...but that doesn't explain what I was there for. Guessed yet how I came to be the intimate of four American presidents? Figured me out? Respectful of their piteous portion of privacy, I call them henceforth ABC, DEF, GHI, and JKL, but as their words are public record, who in fact these four were the reader with a little history will quickly surmise. My capital concern? I polished their prose.
Summer 4 Side Story: Playing With The Weather (featuring QSH and Iskandar)
Kenzan! Las Vegas Gozen Match ~ Swimsuit Swordmasters Seven-Colored Showdown! Side Story: Playing With The Weather Did a summary of this since I didn't expect QSH's Chaldea Park sprite to show up (with different expressions no less!). Please correct if I've made any mistakes. Guda and Mash run into Iskandar at the casino. Iskandar explains he came across the casino and wanted to try contesting his luck, but he lost badly in a gamble and got wiped. Guda asks if he had fun even though he lost badly.
Iskandar: Indeed, I absolutely enjoyed that critical moment when it's all or nothing. That alone is enough to satisfy me. However, losing is bound to happen when it comes to gambling. Not to mention when it comes to merry-making pleasures, you end up wanting to try things you'd normally refrain from doing. After all, even if I lose money I will not lose my life.
Guda: Seems like you truly enjoy playing.
Iskandar: But I miscalculated, not knowing when to call it quits. Sometimes there are cases where a player is too skilled to make mistakes. I happened across a troublesome opponent who also has Fortune on their side.
Mash asks if there was such an amazing player like that in this casino, and Iskandar confirms, pointing to a table and mentioning that they're probably still making bank. That person is...
Guda: Shi Huang Di!?
Mash: Amazing, they've amassed a mountain of chips...
Guest A: Raise!
Qin Shi Huang (QSH): (Looking nervous) Hoh, confident I see...yes no more. We pass.
Guda: Huh? They lost so easily...
Iskandar: Judging from their opponent's energy, it must have been a bluff.
Mash asks if QSH hasn’t realized, and Iskandar replies that of course not, they must have foreseen it, intentionally passing. In the next round (of Texas Hold'Em, seems like), after a series of calls and checks and the players revealing their cards...
QSH: So it’s the showdown? Umu, We behold. A pair and three of a kind. (Winks) I believe this is what is called a full house?
Mash: Instead of raising when they had that strong of a hand, they continued to keep calling?
That is why those other players were unprepared. QSH never stands in the middle of the battlefield, choosing to quietly run away and then strike and win when the opportunity arises.
Iskandar: Geez. What a sly style of playing.
Guda: You're not a big fan of that kind of strategy?
Iskandar: I’m not saying this because I lost. But it somehow felt like I was banging against a wall. When they’re continuing to win with that kind of strategy, can you say that they truly enjoy playing the game?
QSH finally takes notice of you.
QSH: ...hm? Ohh, so even Guda has come. (Smiles) This is a great opportunity to show you Our abilities, in this game as We compete for supremacy as a state administrator.
Mash: I didn’t expect this at all. I didn’t know Shi Huang Di-san was this skilled of a player.
QSH: There also was a time in my Lostbelt where there were many rivalling warlords. It has been hundreds of years since We have engaged in diplomatic manoeuvring without resorting to military force. However in poker, it is the opponent’s face you read rather than the state of their country. If such a difference exists it is only that. Abolishing all the formal ceremonies and getting rid of special envoys and the like, gathering the leaders of each state in one place and vying with one another using solely their wits to compete over national spending. Yes, conflict can be eradicated if such a clear method exists. What a truly splendid system Las Vegas casinos are!
Guda: ...huh? I feel like there’s a huge misunderstanding…
QSH: And when it comes to competing for national prestige, it is inevitable that We alone will gain victory. Umu, with that the Qin Empire should be restored?
Mash: Um, I don’t think the guests playing here are the leaders of their respective nations…
Iskandar: Well, it’s Las Vegas, so if you’re looking for royalty or nobility, there might be one or two walking around.
Mash: (U-uh? Why does Shi Huang Di-san suddenly look so…?)
Guda: (D-did we set off a landmine with those few words?)
QSH: Wait. Wait wait wait just a minute. There are no administrators here? Then the people gathered here? Are simply subjects? These people blowing exorbitant amounts of money, dressed in a laudable fashion, walking in this courtlike interior, are subjects you say?
Iskandar: That’s right. These people dream of fighting against fate with just one chip. All those who gather here tonight can act like kings. That is the true pleasure of gambling.
Though thinking about it, they were a bit puzzled that the nobility here were a bit lacking in ambition and were rather boorish, but they had chalked it up to them being the Ultimate Perfect Lifeform™ that makes everyone else look insignificant in comparison. But even with the stakes being strangely small, to think that people weren't using their national treasuries but their personal fortune is incorrigible! That there are more than one or two people who have lost all their property in a single game is ludicrous! Iskandar asks if QSH didn’t realize that this was all just a game in the first place, and thus that there really is no logic behind gambling.
QSH: Ah, indeed. With all the gambling money flying about tonight, how many cups of porridge could have been made? How many infants could have been fed!? That these riches have been snatched from the citizens for entertainment purposes? How many people have lost and been driven to ruin after being dazzled by the extravagant entertainment that could be mistaken as belonging to nobility?
Mash tries to calm QSH down, but too late. For the first time in ages QSH is already too furious and must exercise their imperial authority to burn this heathen place down to the grounds. Snapping their fingers their automaton army shows up.
QSH: Las Vegas, at this very moment you shall be reduced to ashes by my wrath!
Guda, Mash and Iskandar fight QSH for a bit to try and quell their anger.
Mash: I completely understand your feelings and how angry you must be, but please calm down…! We’ll do whatever we can to fix this Singularity!
QSH: (Pauses)...what? This is a Singularity? Hahaha! You should have said so sooner, how careless! Why was I so angry anyway?
Iskandar points out QSH should have realized it when they Rayshifted to this Singularity. But QSH couldn't care less, after all Pan-Human History at the height of its oddities cannot compete with the perfect and everlasting Eternal Qin Empire, Lostbelt or correct history aside. But since the fate of this repulsive place is to be completely wiped clean, QSH is rest assured.* Mash explains to them what this Singularity is.
QSH: Hmm hmm, Swimsuit Swordmasters...umu! All I understand is that it's better not to get involved. I leave this matter for you to manage. We shall return to Chaldea at once.
Iskandar: You have no desire to help, huh…
QSH: The task of restoring Humanity is a great undertaking. No, it's unfortunate that you are always forced to clean up these disasters. If you ever come to hate it, report to me. At that time I shall set about reviving the Qin Empire.
And with that QSH walks away.
Mash: They ended up leaving...
Iskandar: But was it okay not to explain that? That it's not unusual for casinos to exist in Pan-Human History instead of just in Singularities?
Guda: We'll explain...next time!
Mash: We will explain to Shi Huang Di-san the next opportunity we get. Let’s prioritize the resolution of this Singularity for now.
T/N: 90% sure QSH made a pun here. Instead of 安心 (safe, rest assured), they used 安秦, pronounced the same (anshin) but 秦 being Qin. Edit: nvm, I can't read apparently.
Hey hey! Long term Brisbane resident here. I recently spent 3 months in Perth for work, I loved playing poker at Crown Casino there (it was one of the few things I enjoyed there hahah. They had heaps of weekly tournaments and sit and go games with buy ins as low as $50. Does anybody know if treasury does this? Or cash tournaments anywhere? I can’t find much online about it. I know treasury has sit and go cash games for $100 minimum but I’d love to play a tournament.
Brisbane, QLD Poker Scene... any experience out there?
Hi all. Is there anybody from Brisbane in QLD Australia on here? I'm looking to graduate from my home game and crappy online apps to proper live games - just recreationally. We have the treasury casino and the Australian Poker League and Deep stack Poker League tournaments here, but I cant find any reviews online. Does anyone have experience with these and if so, are any of them worth a shot or am i better off trying to find some more home games to join? Thanks.
There was a post here today about a guy who won a 10k score in a poker tournament in ‘08 and proceeded to black out drunk and wake up without the money, only to receive a letter 10 years later about collecting 13k from a 10k treasury bond he had bought with the money. Thought it was a fun story and reminded me of one of my own degen stories so I figured I’d share. Not poker related and kinda a long read, but hopefully yall enjoy it: Last Summer, I had a little bender where I would take Ambien, drink a few beers and play online blackjack on Bovada (not even the type with a live dealer, just straight up an online program... stupid I know). For those who don’t know about Ambien, it is a sleeping pill (which I am legally prescribed) where, if you don’t go to sleep right away and stay up, you experience euphoria, lowered inhibitions and an insane amnestic effect where you don’t remember anything the next morning. Anyways, I really enjoy the side effects of Ambien so I would pop them an hour or two before going to bed and just chill out. I decided I wanted to gamble so I deposited $500 on Bovada and started playing blackjack. When I woke up the next morning, I didn’t remember I had done this until I opened up my laptop and saw a wizardofodds.com perfect strategy chart open (basically a chart for blackjack that I refer to in spots I’m unsure of). Let me be clear, I had done this before (playing bovada blackjack on ambien), so when I saw the chart open, I was like “oh god, lets see how I did” and logged into Bovada. I had to do a double-take when I saw my balance: ~$3500 I thanked my lucky stars, sent snapchats bragging to all my friends and... popped some more ambien that night. The next morning I didn’t remember playing, but obviously I knew to check my laptop. Surely I had pissed most of it away... Balance: ~$8000 I couldn’t believe it. As a 23 year old at the time, I had a couple sick runs before but nothing like this. Seeing that $8000 in my account balance seemed surreal, it really didn’t register to me how much that was, despite me clearly knowing it was 8 thousand fucking dollars. I think part of it was because it wasn’t like a mind-blowing amount for me (like 20k or something) coming from a relatively privileged upbringing and having a decent job coming out of college, but it was definitely more than double my savings at the time, so it was significant. Knowing this, and knowing that all blackjack heaters must end and they usually end badly, I KNEW I should’ve withdrawn then and there... but alas, I ain’t no bitch so I said fuck it and kept it on. Over the course of the next week, I managed to run it up to ~15k. Some nights I lost a couple thousand, and I had multiple 3-5k swings throughout my sessions, but I kept at it. When I awoke one day and saw ~15k in my account balance, I finally was able to slap some sense into myself and withdraw. The reason I enjoyed playing this Bovada blackjack game was because it allowed you to play up to 3 hands at a time, and the program was instantaneous so you can see a lot of hands in a short span of time - basically a ton of action and swings. Bovada allows you to see all credits/debits to your account and see what time and amount wagered, so I was able to check how I did the night prior, every morning. I got some sort of sick, degenerate excitement from checking how I did each morning. It was funny to see how I would start each session wagering like $5-10 a hand and progressively start betting more as I got more inebriated/ambien kicked in. At my peak, I was wagering $200/hand, 3 hands at a time, banging out like 9 hands a minute. In hindsight, I can’t believe the amount of pure and blatant disrespect and disregard for money I had done. Like, even when I’ve played BJ at a casino, I am way more risk averse when I have physical chips I have to put in, but when it’s just a click of a button, the money just doesn’t seem as real. Even now, $200/hand seems so insane to me, considering how much thats worth at my given age and financial circumstance... Anyways, so that’s how I turned $500 into $15k over the span of a week and I didn’t even remember doing it - a degen story with a happy ending! I hope yall enjoyed the story, as much as I enjoyed telling it! And remember: no gambol, no future.
Another EU country practically bans online poker. New laws came in place during July in Slovakia, only licensed subjects can provide casino games. The reasoning behind legislation is that companies from places like Gibraltar, Malta or Isle of Man are not paying any taxes to the national treasury. Gambling tax in Slovakia is 27%, which is ridiculously high. New rules will affect all types of gambling, but main reasons have been sports betting. Lobbyists from Slovakian sports-betting companies like 'Nike' or 'Tipsport' with tight connections to corrupt Slovakian government wanted advantage over foreign companies. Reason is simple, foreign companies are much better in all aspects like software quality, benefits, rakes etc., so free market drew players away from local companies. They found solution through politics. For poker it is much much worse. The only company allowed to provide online poker in Slovakia is from now on state lottery company called 'Tipos'. We basically created new monopoly. I have played there years back for a short while. They are really really bad, rake is 10% (no surprise with those taxes). Selection of games is terrible, you can play only NLHE, no other types of poker are available. Only cash and MTT, no SNG or other formats. No microstakes or high stakes. Terrible terrible interface (needs flash player). E.g. hand history shows only 5 hands back. It is so bad that nobody sane plays there. During july Financial Administration of Slovak Republic started to publish list of banned sites. List is updated every Monday, but from the state of current laws we can anticipate that all sites providing poker will be eventually banned. As of current date (2. august 2017) there is 16 sites on list. You can see it for example here. 888 or Wiliam Hill are already on the list. There have been some statements from big gambling companies, since new laws from Slovakia are against European rules of free market, but experiences from Czech republic show that in the end gambling companies care only about big markets. Even if there will be law suit against Slovakia in European courts, decision can take years. There is some growth of wealth among European population. That leaves more people with free resources to spend on fun, like poker or sportsbetting. We can only expect that governments will push more towards gaining profit from this segment. It will mean more regulation, higher taxes or bigger rakes to the extent of unplayable legal games. Since poker community as a whole failed to picture poker as sport and it is considered to be gambling by general public, everybody playing poker will be affected by gambling regulations. Your country will be next.
There is a lot misinformation around regarding tax filing so I'm here to help. Remember that you want to do tax planning before the end of the year, but February is still better than April. Start getting help NOW. You can ask anything from general tax questions to poker-related tax questions. I would like to start this off by clarifying that I will not being giving out any tax advice in this post or thread. This is a source of information and current IRS trends and decisions. Therefore, this post will only apply to United States filers. Many factors go into tax planning and it is impossible to provide a plan without having all information available. Here are some helpful sources for people who aren't going to read through the text-post. General Information -- This is a chapter (only 4 pages) out of a continuing education course I attended during December of 2014. It is a good source of general federal tax information relating to gambling income. State legislation and laws may (and will) vary. Ronald Andrew Mayo and Leslie Archer Mayo v. Commissioner -- This case ruled that 1) gambling losses in excess of gambling winnings, may not be deducted to show a loss (even on Schedule C) 2) BUT, other business expenses related to the gambling winnings CAN be deducted to show a net loss (on Schedule C). This decision was affirmed in 2014 in SHIRAZ N. LAKHANI, PETITIONER v. COMMISSIONER . For example, if you had winnings of $10,000, related gambling losses of $15,000, and travel expenses of $5,000, you could show a loss of $5,000 on your Schedule C. ($10,000 - $10,000 - $5,000). FinCEN Report 114, also known as the FBAR is the form for reporting foreign bank and financial accounts. Basically if you have accounts or anyone has an accounts in your name that had a balance over $10,000 USD (in aggregate)(thanks Stefan-Urquelle) at ANY TIME during the year, you are required to report it to the Department of the Treasury. There are no tax effects to this report, it is purely informational. Failure to file the report has very extreme penalties. If you unknowingly failed to file, it has penalties of up to $10,000 PER YEAR unfiled. If you knowingly refused to file the report, the penalties are up to $100,000 per year, or 50% of the balance of the account at the time of violation, PER YEAR.
Thanks to "Stefan-Urquelle" -- FBAR is all of your foreign financial accounts that is $10,000 or more in the aggregate during anytime of the year, not just any one account. There is a concerning case where if you're stateside but your online poker account is deemed to be in another country (such as the Isle of Mann), then your online poker account is considered a foreign financial account for FBAR purposes. Your 2015 FBAR is due June 30, 2016. NO EXTENSIONS. FBARs thereafter (i.e. 2016 FBAR and thereafter) will be due with your tax return.
Also thanks to "Stefan-Urquelle"Direct interests in foreign stock is not reportable on the FBAR until the stock is held in a foreign financial account. Direct foreign stock held, however, is reportable on Form 8938 is you meet the aggregate reporting threshold. It is possible that an online poker account may be reportable on Form 8938.
This release and This release show the IRS guidelines for differentiating between a Hobby and a Business. In simple terms, you have to either make a profit, or make a very convincing attempt to make a profit. (Generally they use the 3 of the last 5 year standard for past profitability) Also, you must spend significant amounts of time completing business activities with the intent of producing profit. I can look up the common practice guideline for hours per year if anyone needs it, although the IRS doesn't have a specific guideline. My tips for anyone with large amounts of gambling income
Begin searching for an accountant (I suggest a CPA) long before the end of the year. Tax planning can require the coordination of many people, businesses, and government offices. The more time the better. NOW is always better than LATER.
Find an accountant that is right for you. You shouldn't pick the first accountant you meet with just because they are a family friend or a CPA. It is important to find an accountant that fits YOU and your situation. Remember, you are paying for their knowledge and planning, not their ability to type numbers into a tax program.
You will be creating a tax PLAN. This entails decisions that have effects on all aspects of your tax filings. Federal vs. State, multiple year periods, multiple individuals (your parents, you, your children), and different schedules on your own tax return. EXAMPLE: Lets say you own a house in New York, and a vacation house at the Jersey shore that you stay at when you play in the casinos. You have investments in some publicly traded oil partnerships that lose $5,000 every year. We decide to set you up as a Schedule C, professional poker player. We could set the 2nd house up as a rental property, that paid $5,000 of rent to your Schedule C every year. The Schedule C would get an expense, reducing income by $5,000, and the rental property would go on Schedule E, increasing the income by $5,000. BUT, the $5,000 of income on the rental property can now be offset by passive losses on the oil partnerships, because they are both passive income on Schedule E. We have just shifted $5,000 of Page 1 income that cannot be offset by passive loses, over to Schedule E and set it against your passive losses. $1,000 - $1,500 tax savings. That is part of a tax PLAN, not tax DECISIONS.
DOCUMENT, DOCUMENT, DOCUMENT. Detailed spreadsheets, receipts, signed letters. Get it in writing, don't take anyone's "word" on anything. If they don't want to write it down or at least send it in an email, its worthless and they won't stand by it when the time comes.
Consider the effects of your decisions on other people. Don't go out and issue $25,000 1099-MISC to your backers (making them pick up income) without talking to them about it.
Give your accountant complete information, even if you think it looks bad or might be illegal. He/She is not a cop, they are not going to report you. This includes but is not limited to foreign bank accounts/investments, other sources of income, past filing information, etc. Don't be embarrassed or scared, they have probably seen much worse. Your accountant has no requirement to notify the IRS or any other government organization of illegal practices of the client. It is worth noting that your accountant (CPAs for sure) may be required to divulge certain information to the government offices when issued a subpoena (unlike lawyers).
Lastly, tax law isn't black and white. It is based on interpretation. As long as the reporting method can be justified and is reported in a reasonable manner, it can be accepted. Four people can report the same expense in 4 different ways, and they could all be accepted, depending on their situation. EXAMPLE: I have a client who has season tickets to a professional football team. He uses some of the tickets to give to clients or take them to games. On his Schedule C, the client wanted to deduct 100% of the tickets, but we argued him down to only taking 50% of the cost of the tickets as a deduction. The client was audited and we discussed the expense with the auditor. He let it go because he saw that we (as the accountants) were trying to work with the client, and were being reasonable by only taking 50% (When we both knew maybe 10-25% of the tickets were used for clients, and none of it was for business-related discussions). IRS field auditors aren't out for blood; they are usually young men and women, just out of school, with a limited number of budgeted hours to complete the whole audit. They just want to see reasonable reporting decisions and clear, detailed records so that they can move on to their next audit.
If there is anything to take away from this post, it is this. Document all of your information, then find an accountant that fits you, as soon as possible, and do what he/she tells you immediately. Please feel free to ask any questions you may have. I probably won't have answers off-hand, but I can try to point you in the right direction or clarify any information you come across. I don't have any clients that file as professional poker players, so I have limited experience with the specific subject matter, but I will do everything I can to try to help. Also, if any mods want me to provide verification, I would be happy to do so. Not that it has any effect on the post, as I will not be giving tax advice or making any professional judgement. EDIT: Thank you to Stefan-Urquelle for additions and clarifications. I have updated the main post.
So I've been out of the poker scene for a while. Used to play a lot (free and cash tournaments/ring games) but never played in the casino. How does it work at treasury casino? I rock up cash in hand (I assume max buy-in is the done thing?) If there's a spare seat at a table can you just sit down? Do you hand the money to the dealer or do you get chips beforehand? Can I ask for my money back if I lose it all? What's the ettiquette regarding leaving the table? Could I hypothetically push all in on the first hand, double my stack and the leave? I wouldn't but what's the ruling on it. Most importantly is it even worth playing at the casino given whatever rake they're using?
Thank you for taking part in our AMA and submitting your questions. Here are responses from John Caldwell (Director of Advocacy), Duncan Cameron (Technical Director) and Andre Jochems (Lead Developer). Get to know them better by visiting our website.
Nole34 (Reddit): How and where will this coin be used? Not meaning as in the network and relay nodes but by a user.
TwoproApps (Reddit): What are the benefits or incentives for casinos to use a crypto currency?
Whufc4life1 (Reddit): What would be the main advantages of using this coin, as an end user, instead of regular fiat currency?
We see CasinoCoin being used as a payment option right alongside USD, EUR, etc. There are many ways to use CasinoCoin, for the customer and the operator that represent tremendous advantages over traditional funding methods. For the customer, you will have to complete KYC once, then you will be able to play on multiple vendors in seconds, deposit and withdraw for a fraction of current rates and have a suite of tools at your disposal to manage and control your play. For the operator, you get a customer that is pre-vetted by a licensed, approved KYC vendor that lands at your door, deposits in seconds in a way where the deposit is permanently and transparently recorded and is not subject to chargebacks.
TwoproApps (Reddit): With the coin being potentially volatile in the future, could it affect casinos wanting to use it?
We don’t believe so. Like any payment instrument, the customer would deposit in CSC and withdraw in CSC - making volatility a non-factor for the casino in the short term, provided the casino maintains a sufficient balance of CSC.
TwoproApps (Reddit): How do casinos exchange CSC for fiat if they wanted to?
Casinos will have several options to acquire CSC, all of which will take treasury functions into account to mitigate possible volatility to the greatest extent possible. This will be done via traditional processing methods.
TwoproApps (Reddit): Will casinos have to make their CSC games payout in CSC or can they also pay in fiat and vise versa. Can a fiat gambler cash out in CSC if they wanted to?
This will eventually be possible, but it will be the choice of the operator. Once a casino starts to allow cashouts in different currencies, the volatility risks rise. We are designing CSC to be used in game, but our first step is to get casinos to adopt CSC as a payment method.
Lowmm (Reddit): Will you go into other trading markets, bittrex for example?Boyo (Reddit): will bittrex be adding CasinoCoin? after the swap?
Our focus is:
1.Designing the best product for the market, users & operators,
2.Compliance within regulated markets
3.Creating strong partnerships within the gaming industry.
We strongly feel if we work on the things we can control, all the external elements like exchanges will take care of themselves.
paulkt (Reddit): When can we expect to see the first Casino using Casinocoin?
We will be ready for real partner integration in Q1 of 2018. However, the actual timeline will be dictated more by potential partners, regulators, banks, and other external forces. We are under no illusion that getting to market with licensed operators in regulated markets (we’ll only operate under these conditions) will not be a quick process, but we are confident it will happen.
hurdamurda (Reddit): I had 50.000 CSC and then cryptsy stole them. :( I still believe
Anyone who has been in crypto for a year or more has a story to tell like this. We can’t control what happens at third party providers like exchanges, and can only encourage holders of any crypto to adopt best practices with respect to protecting your coins. Most of us have been in crypto for a long time, with our own stories like this, so we are building the CSC solution to provide maximum security to customers.
powpow44 (Reddit): In the roadmap you state "New CasinoCoin Brand & Website Launch". Can you share what the foundation has in mind for a rebrand?
The rebrand is more about the logo itself. Most of us really like the ‘button’ logo that has been with CSC since the beginning. However, we don’t love all elements of the logo, and the presentation from both a visual and format perspective is not ideal (ie: no proper graphical/vector files exist). We’re fixing that. It won’t change drastically.
rambroziak (Discord): I do not know, it's possible, CSC has the opportunity to develop !!! Now we have a more important problem !!! When Cryptopia urucchomi payouts CSC
Although the Cryptopia situation occurred before the formation of the foundation, members of the team have been working on collecting data from the CSC community to attempt to first establish how many coins may have been lost on Cryptopia. We have a reasonable idea of the figure now, but in our correspondence with Cryptopia, our figures don’t match. We’re currently waiting on a response from them to our latest email and we hope to have something to share with the community this month.
Whufc4life1 (Discord): Just wondering - how are you guys planning to handle KYC/AML procedures across different jurisdictions?
With a licensed KYC provider, the visibility/transparency of a blockchain and a GLI compliant product, AML issues will be to the highest standard possible. This is actually an area where blockchain is a significant upgrade over current best practices.
nioConisaC (Discord): Will the Bankroll Manager wallet offer feature of bridge currency?
We will not use that feature from the start but it does allow us to implement customer specific reward programs in the future where points/rewards are being issued and linked to CSC.
Boyo (Discord): have the devs contact coinmarketcap to add the new csc?
CoinMarketCap has been contacted and will update CSC to the new network once an already connected exchange implements it.
mark (Discord): I’m still curious how the csc revival came about, I recognise a few of you from the bitcointalk forum a few years ago, but how did the likes of john and the rest of the board come about?
John: It’s really about timing. When I left PokerStars in ‘14, I took some much needed time off. I studied the crypto markets (including CSC) at that time, and felt that the market/world wasn’t ready yet. Then, in early 2016, my wife started really getting into crypto. This got me back into it on a regular basis. The possibility of starting the Foundation was broached to me summer of this year and I felt the timing was right.
HUGE collection sale! random decks (Jerry's nugget, private reserve, etc,..
Hey guys! I used to be big into cards but for a couple years now my collection has just sat collecting dust. Decided now would be a good time to try to get some of it sold to help fund my future schooling. Because packaging up and listing decks on eBay one by one would be absolutely brutally repetitive, i decided i would take another approach i used to see back in the day. MYSTERY BOX I have a bunch of decks, sealed, cracked open, and used. By purchasing a brick you will get 12 random decks that will range from casino decks to fontains and virtuosos. Please note: "Used" simply means i played with them when I was bored fidgeting with them. By no means does this mean i used the deck on a sticky kitchen table playing poker with a bunch of friends. YOU WILL NOT GET A POOP DECK, i promise you. I took very good care of my cards and always wash my hands before handling them because i tend to be OCD like that. Pricing! I remember paying $180 for a random brick on a Facebook group, but being out of the community so long i'm not sure of card values anymore.. I've decided to do pricing as follows: Brick(12 decks): $100Half brick(6 decks): $60 I am only offering a limited number of these. Once i'm sold out, i'm sold out. Sorry! Here's the 'pool' of all the decks you can get.
