The Disappearing Act (Open to all!)
The Disappearing Act - the museum plot where a small group of individuals try to steal an exhibit. Will it be for the good of the city or will it only do damage?
This plot is an open thread where anyone can join. If you’re human you’re limited to just having fun at the party, or even spotting the thieves. If you’re not human then you have the chance to join in on the heist.

The Scriptor Bay Museum was known to host several banquets throughout the year in order to keep it funded. Although they made money through the tax payer’s hard earned dollars and tickets that they sold for certain exhibits, it was hardly enough to keep the museum funded alone. Not with the staff that they had on hand, the outside company that they hired to move out old displays and bring in new ones. And of course, can’t forget the cost of storage for the old displays before they were shipped elsewhere!
So the museum held banquets and always sent invitations to their most valuable clientele. Of course they didn’t have to pay to attend these parties, but those who didn’t receive a formal invite had to purchase a ticket for $60! Of course all the proceeds went to the museum directly and not a third party, which made it much more of a bearable price to the working man or woman.
Giant lights shone and rotated, illuminating the museum like some sort of flashy advertisement. It was to draw everyone’s attention to it and it worked well. The pillars that held the up the front of the building were decorated elegantly, another thing to make it aesthetically pleasing and inviting.
Around the perimeter of the building was security as a precautionary procedure just like every other banquet that was hosted there. They didn’t want someone to sneak in and steal anything of value. Not to mention it made those with money feel much safer knowing that they wouldn’t be pick pocketed while they were enjoying a glass of champagne over cool conversation.
Cars were pulling up to the front of the building as a valet service that was hired just for the night would take the keys and park the vehicles in a parking structure that was just across the street. They outdid themselves like they did every time. They knew they’d get enough donations to pay for the cost of it all from the guests of the banquet. And if not? Then they’d hold another in less than a month’s time.
The banquet didn’t start until eight but the building was already filling up quickly with guests.Read more:http://scriptorbay.proboards.com/index.cgi?board=museum&action=display&thread=979&page=1#ixzz1nzGe7bwI
