Party at Mambi's realm, all are invited!

Ah, my apologies, my linguistic database assured me the term was universal. I shall make the correction. Regardless, I am happy to show you anywhere you wish to go.

<the holobunny stands politely and blinks at you, as the lights from the party shine through her form.>
"It would be reasonable for the term to be universal. I don't go to the surface much, so there's a lot that is pretty much universal I don't know..."

<the fox pours himself a small glass of orange juice and smiles wide> Oh it was an adventure for sure, but not certain it's for me. The rides while thrilling at first only hurt my stomach and head in the end, and some of the food is hot or miss...gotta use the ol' nose to get the good from the bad, y'know? As for the games? The fair ones were fun but Mambi saw right through the physics of the rigged ones. It was funny to see the look on the operator's faces as their tricks backfired! <chuckle>

<he catches himself and smiles>
Oh but I'm sure not all of them are crooked, most probably are quite honest with their guests.
"Ehh.... I should ask Bailey how often he rigs the ones he manages. That tiger's specialized in dealing with those. Unfortunately, with the varied size nature of the clients we have, we can't have most of the usual rides. We can't even have things like bounce houses because so many beings across the multiverse have claws. We've been working on ways to accommodate both, and we'll eventually reopen the escape room once we can figure that out... it's a struggle."

The protogen took another sip.

"What we have instead are multiple golf and mini-golf courses. Sadly, we had to relegate the last guy in charge of mini-golf, a leathersaur, into being the guy in the dunk tank because he was kind of a malicious prankster. The Neon Knights mini-golf course has tricks like portals, he actually managed to get a royal visitor to snap a golf putter by the second hole. I... think either an aeromorph or a wickerbeast runs it now? The other runs the arcade."

Oh, well that explains it then. <the holobunny waves her paw> This is called a "building". The light source outside is called the "sun". Prolonged direct observation is not recommended to preserve organic optical function. Further explanations can be provided upon request. Perhaps the observatory would be of use for further education of the surface world, or the holographic gardens can recreate most environments for pre-emptive exploration?

Oooo, I can see the problem. I know though, how about an escape room that is made out of a titanium cage? Nobody can escape that! Oh wait...the goal is to actually succeed in escaping at some point. My bad, I forgot...never mind. <giggle> Maybe mandatory mittens for guests to shield errant claws? The pool area had a smillar problem one time and "swimming mittens" seemed to solve it.

<the fox looks on slightly confused>
Oh...that sounds...bad? I think. Er, what is "golf" and a "putter" Is that the person who sets things in places, like a shelf stocker? A "putter"? I'm sorry, the place I went to didn't have this "golf" ride, so i don't quite know what you mean sir...<he blushes slightly as he shrugs innocently>

"Ah, that second idea sounds good."

Killer serval
A sleek female serval stands eyeing the portal, fiddling decidedly with her claws. A party, eh? She hadn't allowed herself to have any real 'fun' in a while, now. What was the harm?

She nodded to the holographic bunny, beckoning for entrance in. She stepped into the portal and was greeted with a surreal-looking mirage of other creatures. Eirlys herself wasn't dressed too fancy -- she hadn't been prepared for this, after all. She wore simply her usual spiked black steampunk goggles and a black blazer. Anything under the blazer wasn't necessary -- she had fur, anyhow.


"Well then, suppose I should go out and socialize--?" she murmured to herself, somewhat uncertainly. Despite how rough-and-tumble the serval might have appeared, she was actually extremely awkward in public -- simply because of her inexperience with other people.

-A brown fox with mushrooms growing on their ears and white spots all over, walks in-
Noticing the fox, Eirlys prances over to them, trying to conceal her nervousness. "Hello," she says smoothly, flicking her tail.

She can sense his nervousness, and her ears prick promptly up. "No need to be so shy, I don't bite," she promised, although she very much was known to bite (though, in the moment, she wasn't feeling too particularly inclined).

They slowly crawl towards her "Okay, but, I tought you'd be more scared of me?!- " Tobie says confused
"Me? Scared?" She waved a paw dismissively, droplets from earlier's kill glittering on the tips of her claws. "Pssht, no." A light blush crept up onto her face as she said this, for she had to admit she was intimidated by being around so many people. "Anyway... What's your name, fox?"

"Tobie" They said very shy, my ears go down as I blush seeing the blood on her paws
"Tobie," she muses, a low purr rising in her throat. "Nice name, that. I'm Eirlys." Her thick Norse accents drips with an odd sort of friendliness as she extends a paw.

"Mittens, huh? I'll try asking my co-workers about that idea."

The protogen hesitated for a second.

"As for the whole 'golf' thing... there's a lot to explain of the sport, but at its very core you're trying to hit a ball into a hole. You use a club - as in the bludgeon - to do it, and typically they're really thin metal poles with weighted heads. Usually you have a large variety of clubs available. The 'putter' is the club you use when you're really close to the hole and don't want the ball going far."

The protogen actually displayed the image of an LED version of a golf putter on his visor for a few moments, before returning to its usual face.

"'Mini-golf' is basically a form of golf where you're only allowed to use those putters. Sometimes you can still get the ball airborne with a putter, but most people have better sense than that. Anyways, snapping a golf club is actually not that big of a deal at our courses. There are certain pieces of equipment that are treated in such a way where if it's broken, it will be sent to an alternate timeline and a replacement will arrive. It's very hard to explain, I didn't set it up."

<seeing a break in your conversation, a few small bunnies wearing suits approach you carrying trays. The lead one bows deeply as the others stand politely behind him>

Oh hello, sorry we're late serving you, it's been quite busy in the kitchen. <one bunny giggles to himself as another pokes him in the ribs> Anyway, Mambi is currently busy conversing with another guest at the moment but should be along shortly. If you wish a tour or a map, our resident AI Aurora or one of can provide it if you wish. Main dining hall is to the right and I recommend the juice bar and cheese flambe. Holographic garden and observatory and pool hall is to the right and upstairs. In the meantime, may we offer you some snacks? <they hold out their trays with a smile>

<the fox examines the image on your visor and nods> Huh...so from what I can see, the funnest part of golf is the putting then, given that it has an entire section dedicated literally just to that and that alone? It makes sense I suppose...such a large field and not being allowed to just run and play in it but rather walking trying to find a small ball over and over and over. It really doesn't sound like a good use of the time honestly.

But the putting part? Yeah, I can see that taking off as a fun activity! They must be much more popular, as I imagine they're more accessible to the masses as well. The timeline idea is fascinating though. Mambi or Aurora might understand the physics more, but I can easily picture having the ball in a time loop, or getting in the hole before you hit it. Or having two or more balls from alternate shots converging on the hole at the same time and trying not to collide. Lots of fun potential as long as they don't stick their limbs on the hole by accident! Might get messy if that happens, bad for business. <chuckle>

"Well... the mini-golf is more popular across age groups."

The protogen finished the rest of his drink.

"The more over-arching form of golf... we have ways to draw people, but usually the ones that come around to that side are far more... dedicated. They use the place for business meetings. Don't ask me why a sport where hitting things with a bludgeon is good for settling a business deal, I have no idea either."

The protogen sighed.

"For the ones that aren't trying to make the big sale... oh right, I should explain another one of the clubs."

The image of a driver golf club flashed on the protogen's screen briefly.

"We have a driving range. That club you saw... in normal golf, that's generally the first club you use, called the 'driver'. Lot of distance, but only works well on the designated start point for a hole - the 'tee' as they call it. The driving range? Imagine you get a bucket of golf balls and are only hitting from the tee. We have targets set up for people to try and hit... and something unique we call 'siege golf'. Imagine trying to destroy a castle by hitting enchanted golf balls at it, and you have a good idea what siege golf is."

<the fox laughs hard as he sets down his drink carefully before it spills> Well it's certainly one way to ensure a good deal is made I suppose! If you're talking about your business power while hitting balls as hard as you can, maybe it sets a threatening tone to the other person? I don't know, Mambi usually doesn't have to negotiate for anything and as far as I know he never played this game either. Huh, you'd think though that they'd want to relax and not deal with work in their free time? Business minded people just confuse me sometimes...no sense of true value to themselves, all about objects and numbers. <deep sigh> We get a few of those kind of creatures every now and then, trying to buy everything they see from Mambi. It's hilarious because as you probably noticed, Mambi doesn't need anything and can usually just get what he wants anyway so they have nothing to offer and aren't used to thinking in terms of "not-money valuables"Always good for a laugh as they walk away exasperated. <he chuckles and takes another drink from his juice, pouring himself a second one from a pitcher with orange slices in it>

<the fox tilts his head intrigued> "Targets"? Now that sounds like a sport with a goal more interesting than "put the ball in a hole you can only see with binoculars"! What does the enchantment do to the balls if I may ask? Fire or explosives would be amazing to watch!

THAT version sounds like a lot more fun!. Huh, "Siege golf"...I'll have to explore that some more I think.

"Usually for an instance of siege golf, we issue ten golf balls. Six of them are ordinary catapult stones. Three of them are fireballs. One of them, yes, is a standard bomb."

The protogen smiled.

"So often, the mistake most people who play it make is to rush right into using the bomb ball. It's far better to use the stones first, open up a hole... and hit the bomb into that. So much more damage to the castle that way."

"We've had a few beings like that in the amusement center, too. We... tend to have far less fun with it. It's usually the best source for information on new arcade machines, though."

The protogen held out his glass.

"Unfortunately, far too often it's merely another iteration of a minigame collection where the controls are just three buttons. Usually the minigames involve a lot of hitting the same button fast, but there's plenty of room for nuance with just three buttons. Even then, though... one of these days I hope for a really innovative arcade game to be unveiled."

((I'll actually give context here - the 'minigame collection' he refers to is a series of arcade games called Bishi Bashi. Not well-known in America to my knowledge.))
