Tourist Attractions

 
"The lights, the sounds...! Everything is amazing, I feel a rush while I'm here! I've seen at least..." The elf combed their hands through their hair. "I've seen at least....five shows while I'm here! Magic, dances....Not to mention the bars, and the slots...! I know I'm going to hit it big soon!"

The city itself reminds of places like Cancun and Las Vegas, and I like it! Overall I think the article is very concise and to the point! I love I get to have a feel of the city without much explanation. But I would like to know more about the history of the place and the addiction runes. Maybe that could be an expansion after Summer Camp? Just a thought!

Oh I could definitely add more in the future, it seems like Addiction Runes piqued the interest of a few so I could do that! It would be fun. : D

Absolutely wonderful read of a Las Vegas expy! The idea of Addiction Runes is interesting, and I wonder where else these may be used. Whats the legality behind them? Could They be used elsewhere to keep children going back to school? To keep a spouse from cheating?

Thank you! The legality of Addiction runes is this: It's not legal. :'D at all. It would be considered incredibly unlawful for schools and toward partners (especially in terms of consent). It was probably more legal in the past, but not so much anymore.
