Grifter

Mr. DuBois: Well, naturally, Tyrant's Palace cost an astronomical sum to construct.

Mr. DuBois: The structure itself is mammoth and the interior needed to match the opulence and luxury associated with the Casino's namesake.

Mr. DuBois: With our funding, though, we had the freedom to create a beautiful facility that spoke to the eternal grandeur of the emperor.

Mr. DuBois: Well, because we cater exclusively to the wealthiest of clientele, we occasionally get some truly famous individuals.
Mr. DuBois: Naturally, we cater to these individuals - It truly is the number one location for the Emperor's Praetors.

Mr. DuBois: When they are not maintaining peace through their constant vigilance, the powerful come here to play.

Mr. DuBois: As you well know, we are a world-class hotel and casino, complete with all the ammenities you would expect.
Mr. DuBois: It's not the normal ammenities of Tyrant's Palace that makes it so unique, but rather how we cater to the unique and specifc tastes of our patrons.

Mr. DuBois: Virtually anything is available within the luxurious privacy of the Casino, for a price, of course.

Hitter

EdLetter.png Editor's Note:

The correct patron to train is the man in the trench coat, the Disheveled Drifter.

Training the Disheveled Drifter:

The Disheveled Drifter: Easy. Hi-Lo strategy. Two through Six, I add one; Seven through Nine, nothing; Ten, Jack, Queen, King, Ace, I subtract one. I'm going to enjoy this. Rattle through some cards quick!
The Disheveled Drifter: Minus one, minus one, plus one, plus one, null, plus one. Oh this will be sweet!
The Disheveled Drifter: I told you I could do this. Anything else I should know?
The Disheveled Drifter: Time for sweet sweet revenge!
The Disheveled Drifter: Hey! Look who's back! Scoot over!
Dealer: The game is Blackjack, gentlemen...
Dealer: Please place your bets!
The Disheveled Drifter: In here? Wait until we get out of here - ALL IN!
Gambler: He's murdering us here!
EdLetter.png Editor's Note:

Training any of the other patrons will not alert the casino.

Training the Honest-Looking Professional:

The Honest-Looking Professional: Alright, I think I get it. Hi-Lo strategy. Two through Six, I add one; Seven through Nine, nothing; Ten, Jack, Queen, King, Ace, I subtract one. Please provide some numbers for me to remember.
The Honest-Looking Professional: Minus one, minus one, plus one, plus one, null, plus one. Wait, this seems to have gone past just probability and seems a lot like cheating.
The Honest-Looking Professional: Well, dubious as it sounds to my ears, I've gone far enough that I might as well try it. Anything else?
The Honest-Looking Professional: Well, let's take this for a spin and learn how good I am at this!
The Honest-Looking Professional: Mind another player, gentlemen?
Dealer: The game is Blackjack, ladies and gentlemen...
Dealer: Please place your bets!
The Honest-Looking Professional: 'Little lady', eh? I'm in.
Gambler: The little lady has cleaned me out! Fold.
Jimmy Crescendo: Everything on the up and up, over there?
Dealer: Mr. Crescendo? Yes, everything seems fine.

Training The High Roller:

The High Roller: Alright, I think I get it. Hi-Lo strategy. Two through Six, I add one; Seven through Nine, nothing; Ten, Jack, Queen, King, Ace, I subtract one. Okay! Throw some numbers at me!
The High Roller: Minus one, minus one, plus one, plus one, null, plus one. Arg, this is confusing to keep track of. I think I got it though, keep going!
The High Roller: I've got it! Woa-boy! The house is going DOWN! Before that, you got any more pointers?
The High Roller: Alright, Senpai! Watch as your Kohai goes all Bushido on this establishment!
Dealer: The game is Blackjack, gentlemen...
The High Roller: Wha-uh... I mean, All in. Too.
The High Roller: Oh! Jimmy! I-uh didn't see you there. I swear, I wasn't counting cards. Not this time at least. Honest! Please don't break my knuckles!
Jimmy Crescendo: You sure about that son? I think I gave a warning to you last time I saw you in here trying to cheat the house.
Gambler: All in.
Dealer: Gentlemen, please place your bets!

EdLetter.png Editor's Note:
