NLA Commercial District
Raijin is standing outside an extravagant-looking diner, talking to Mr. Moneyfists.
"So, you built this place?"
"Since I couldn't bring in The Business as a whole, I decided to rebuild one of my personal favorite parts of it. I could've built it with my own two hands, but I paid for it instead since I'm not a professional at everything."
"And your advertisements say it will cater to all denizens of the Arena, regardless of their origin?"
"Quite. That's part of the beauty of the Business. If you want it, we got it."
Raijin strokes his beard. "How intriguing... and impressive, for a mortal."
"Eh, that last bit's arguable."
Raijin chuckles. "I suppose I will have to go in and check it out."
Mr. Moneyfists gestures to the door. "Be my guest. You'll actually be the first patron, so this meal's on the house."
Inside Fists Of Food
The place is a true showcase of Scenery Porn, featuring a surprisingly well-designed mixture of different cultures' architecture, and a view of the kitchen on full display no matter where someone chooses to sit.
Raijin steps in and is immediately blown back (metaphorically), going wide-eyed and gasping like a child. "Su-sugoi ne~!"

Cinke runs in, pointing at the building.
"MY PALATES YEARN FOR SUSTENANCE ! I SHALL FEED ON THE INSIDE OF THIS BUILDING AND THIS WILL BE DONE WITH GEAT JOY BUT LITTLE HASTE !"
She attempts to enter !
Moneyfists steps aside briskly to allow Cinke to enter.
Raijin looks at a massive circular table with twenty chairs, seemingly the largest table in the establishment. He immediately swoops in and sits down at that table.
"... So how do we order here?"
Mr. Moneyfists hollers from outside, "You can order at a counter or you can wait for me to come take your order!"
She sit next to Raijin all of a sudden.
"Ha, a real deity ! How impressive !" she says. "Can I touch your muscles ?"
"... S-sure?" Raijin rolls up his sleeve. "Pretty sure the owner of this establishment is actually more muscular than I am. Also, you look familiar. Would your surname be Tripadora, by any chance?"
Mr. Moneyfists walks in. "So, what can I get for you?"
"Ah, I'll start simple. Can I get a vegetable tempura platter?"
"And what about you, ma'am?"
"Hm... a bobotie, please !" she says, as she touch his muscle. She gets a jolt but, being a sister, doesn't mind it.
"Why, yes, have you met one of us before ?" she says. "They must have told you about how great I am !"
Thor and Loki can be seen on Slavebird Isle, the latter using Jack's sword to draw a circle in the ground.
"I do hope your more... bombastic counterpart possesses more of those capsules, should the coward somehow weasel his way out of this trap."
"Knowing the hatred he harbors for this Loki, I would be more surprised if he didn't."
Nicole is presently going for a jog through the city's Commercial District when she spots the Fists of Food diner.
"Huh... Funny, I was actually just about to find somewhere to stop for lunch."
She proceeds to enter the diner, letting out a low whistle upon getting a look at the interior.

"No, actually, she didn't even mention having sisters." Raijin pauses to say, "Greetings!" as Nicole enters.
"Her given name was Neuff, she said. She looked rather world-weary compared to you, though."
Mr. Moneyfists pulls out a pen and a notepad and starts writing, muttering, "Veggie tempura and bobotie... What about you, new patron?"
"Ho, hello Nicole !"
"... ho yes, this is a future Neuff. My Neuff is younger and less cynical. There is another Neuff, a mother of two, who's more powerful by a margin and also happier." says Cinke. "There's a lot of alternate Neuffs but there's only a single me, I'm that good."
Myth Thor descends from the sky, his hammer shining with lightning.
"GREAT FRIENDS ! I WILL CHANNEL THE SPELL ! IF THE IMMORTAL GOD ARRIVES, I SHALL SLAM INTO HIM AND BEGIN THE BATTLE A COUNTRY AWAY, PREVENTING A QUICK RETURN !"
Nicole waves to the others as she approaches the table before looking to Mr. Moneyfists in particular.
"I'll have... a steak, well done. Could I get some fries with it, too?"
"Right... I can only assume that's your way of telling us to spring the trap. Thor, would you do the honors?"
Thor proceeds to empty the capsule's contents into the circle before flashing a smile at Myth!Thor.
"If all goes well, your Asgard shall have one less pain in the arse to worry about."

"Veggie tempura, bobotie, and well-done steak with fries. And, would you like chopsticks with your tempura, sir?"
Raijin shrugs. "Why not?"
"In that case, I'll be right back." Moneyfists clicks his pen "shut" and disappears into the kitchen.
Raijin nods to Cinke and Nicole. "So, what are your names, ladies?"
"Cinke Tripadora, like the french number." she says.
"I'm doing perfect. Anything less wouldn't work."
"DO NOT WORRY FRIEND, OUR BOTTOM IS WELL AND PAINLESS !" says Thor, raising his hammer... as several huge lightning bolts impact the tiny Mjolnir. After a little while, he points it at the circle and toss concentrated lightning around the circle, with blue seithr flying around the accumulating energy.
Azula is walking around being in the lack of money and sleep. Her hair is down, and her blaster isn't equipped, though her Saiyan armor is.
"*sigh* I need-
She spots Fists of Food.
-… some food."
She pushes her way inside and looks around.
"I'm Nicole, your resident ex-cop turned half-dragon who's a friend of Cinke here and her Sisters," Nicole answers Raijin, taking a seat at the table. "You got a name, dude?"
Upon noticing the newly-arrived Azula, she greets her with a nod.
"Yeesh... looks like she's seen better days."
Cue a raised eyebrow from Loki.
"I... do believe my brother was speaking metaphorically."
"He's an odd fellow like that, Loki, just be prepared to strike."
Thor and his younger brother watch as Myth!Thor adds the finishing touches to the trap, their respective weapons at the ready.

"I am Raijin, the Japanese storm god."
Mr. Moneyfists comes back in. He has the meals on plates which appear to be straight-up levitating around him with telekinesis, and he calmly sets each one down in front of the person who ordered it. "I've always preferred to get food before beverages. Anything you'd like to drink?"
Then he turns to Azula. "That goes for you, too, ma'am."
"I'll have some green tea." After ordering his beverage, Raijin then attempts to make small talk. "You know, in olden times, I would eat the abdomens of children who kept their navels exposed during my thunderstorms. I've long outgrown such a habit, but I was considering ordering cow stomach or something similar just to test this restaurant's claims."

"Just some iced tea, thanks." she says, listening to Raijin.
"Ha, yes ! It could be useful for sustenance !" she says. "It's quite morally dubious however, so I will instead refrain my enthusiasm as a mark of disapproval !"
She wags her finger and frown.
There's a huge circle of lightning around the circle now !
"NOW FRIENDS !"
"Er, hello," she responds to Nicole.
She looks at Mr. Moneyfists.
"I'll, uh… have some tea as well? With mint?"
"Root beer, please," Nicole answers Moneyfists before popping a fry into her mouth, then fixing Rajin with a bewildered look at the mention of his former... hobby.
"Uh huh... Anyway, speaking of storm gods, you ain't the first one I've met around here. Ever heard of the Greek god Zeus?"
At Myth!Thor's cue, Thor unleashes a blast of lightning towards the circle while Loki fires several blasts from his scepter alongside him.
Raijin nods. "I know of other cultures' storm gods, though I have not met them in person. I think a battle royale between us would be truly... electrifying." He picks up his chopsticks. In the blink of an eye, his hand darts out to try and snatch one of Nicole's fries, which he will eat if he succeeds.
Mr. Moneyfists goes in and immediately comes out with the drinks, setting them on the table just like with the food. "So, new woman, what would you like to eat?"
Edited by KiriK on Sep 12th 2018 at 11:44:45 AM
Cinke just begins to eat and drink.
"ZEUS ? Ha yes, i hope that he'll try and seduce me so that I can see Olympus for myself." she says. "And perhaps get a demigod son or daughter to raise !"
She laughs. "Haha, the hybrid of a Sister and the top god ! He or she shall rullle... the schoolyard. Because he'll or she will be a well adjusted adult. Because such power should be manipulated by a sane person of course !"
Loki promptly appears.
"Wait, who-WHOAH !" he says, being promptly buried under tons of explosions.
”Erm… anything would be good. You have any platypus-bear roast? I haven’t had that in… forever, really.”
Azula glances at Raijin when he talks about electricity, but is paying more attention to the prospect of food.
She then sends a glance Cinke’s way, a little weirded out.
Nicole takes a sip of her root beer, then bites into a chunk of her steak.
"Heh... you could try challenging Zeus, Rai, but I think he'd just go 'HAHAHA, YOUR CHALLENGE IS MOST AMUSING, BUT THE GREAT AND POWERFUL ZEUS HAS FAR MORE IMPORTANT THINGS TO DO THAN SPAR WITH LESSER STORM GODS!' I could be wrong, though, so don't let that discourage ya."
Cue Rajin swiping one of her fries, much to the Arcane half-dragon's annoyance.
"...Seriously? You could've just asked, dude."
She eats several of her fries, then raises an eyebrow at Cinke in response to her... odd remark.
"...What. Please me you ain't being serious, Cinke."
Loki flashes a taunting grin at Myth!Loki before quickly moving to slash at his face with Jack's sword.
"Caught unawares by such a simple trick... You truly are a disgrace to the name of Loki!"
Thor flies straight towards Myth!Loki, then attempts to repeatedly bash him into the ground hard with Mjolnir.
"There's nobody here for you to cower behind now, wretch!"

"Sounds like quite the character," Raijin comments. "Also, sorry."
He looks up at the overhead lighting while eating the stolen fry, as if deep in thought. Then he swallows. "Meh. Is this that 'American' food I've heard of?"
Mr. Moneyfists bows to Azula. "I'll be right back with your order, ma'am." He steps into the kitchen.
Narktus suddenly glides over the ground at breakneck speed onto the scene, throwing what could damn near be considered a Megaton Punch at Myth!Loki.

They all hit it... or rather, they all hit a straw doll of Loki. It glows with foreign power and then explode with great force, as the real Loki melt into view, with some burns on his disheveled face. These burns promptly vanish as he sweeps his hands over to his face though.
"I never thought that this dumb little musclehead would be able to form a trap !" he says. "But with the way he was just spouting that nonsense, I eventually heard of it !"
He sprouts two blades !
"I wasn't excepting you to take the initiative now but whatever, I'll just kill you all on the spot !" he says.
Boss Fight : Loki.
The God of Lies
Loki laughs hysterically as his torso and neck enlarge to freakish lengths. After a moment, he promptly throws up a green wave of acid towards the group, devouring everything in sight as it bears down towards the group.
Thor begins to attack but is tackled away by Baldur. Loki turns around, glance... and raise an eyebrow.
"Who was that ?"
"Of course I'm not joking, I want a demi god son or daughter."

She mumbles something about a 'madwoman' and glancing at Cinke.
She turns to Raijin.
"how much does this place cost?"
