DAMNIT. Alright, I'll wait for TCM as well.

EDIT: Okay, while I'm waiting for TCM/Xantalos, I'll just give a bit of an explanation of Las Vegas in 2213 (since sci-fi Vegas won the poll).

Layout: Okay, since I'm not too familiar with modern-day Las Vegas, I've decided that in 200 hundred years time, Las Vegas resembles Hensha from Deus Ex Human Revolution; namely, the two levels of city. Basically, the upper level is all the high-end casinos/hotels/brothels. Down below is the living quarters for the city's normal residents, workers and the more seedy whorehouses and gambling dens.

Level of Tech in 2213: Robotics is now a functioning thing, humanity has railguns and mecha and the average human lifespan is approx 140 years.

Start: You all get $10,000. After that, you're set loose. Do what you gotta do and we'll see what happens. Try not to go into debt or anything.

Okay, starting that turn now.


Outskirts of Las Vegas, 23rd January 2213.

All
The rundown 50 year old bus grinds to a halt outside a seedy bar.
End of the line, you little bastards! Now get the hell off of my bus!
And with that, you're in Las Vegas.
...
Each of you has brought your life savings here. Each of you has come for a different reason. But one thing is for sure; whether it's up top in the soaring skyscraper casinos or down here in the dirt and seedy gambling dens, you're gonna win big! At least, if you can figure out where you will go to do so.

Call a taxi to take me to the part of the Strip where 2Pac died.

Take a taxi to a production studio. Try to get a show where I cook foods, especially Cheesecake. Call the show: Piece of Cake! Get +1 bonus to rolls due to awesome witty name.

Open up Google Maps 21.7 and see if I can't navigate my way to the hotel I'm staying at. Hopefully everything I need for my cosplay actually arrived there...

Find a map of the city or somewhere to buy a map of the city.

I would ask why fire can burn two men to death without getting hot enough to burn a book, but then I read "INEXTINGUISHABLE RUNNING KAMIKAZE RADIOACTIVE FLAMING ZOMBIE" and realized that logic, reason, and physics are all occupied with crying in the corner right now.

Samuél Malbeau - Open up Google Maps 21.7 and see if I can't navigate my way to the hotel I'm staying at. Hopefully everything I need for my cosplay actually arrived there...

Google Maps gives you accurate directions and you go on your way.
(Will arrive next turn.)

Chaeskake - Take a taxi to a production studio. Try to get a show where I cook foods, especially Cheesecake. Call the show: Piece of Cake! Get +1 bonus to rolls due to awesome witty name.
[5 - 1 = 4]
After some cajoling and negotiation you manage to get the cabbie to drive you.
-$20
[1]
You end up at a warehouse in a pretty seedy area... well this must be the place!

Kyle Johnson - Venture into a casino.
[5 - 1 = 4]
The casino you find yourself in is pretty upscale; the thugs are relatively well dressed and the hookers aren't entirely obvious.

Jonathan McMacen - Find a map of the city or somewhere to buy a map of the city.
[2]
No maps for you!

Aaron Wallace - Call a taxi to take me to the part of the Strip where 2Pac died.
[4]
You manage to hail down a cab driver and explain where you want to go.
[5]
"No worries bro, I can get you there!
After a few minutes of driving the cab pulls up at the abandoned University Medical Centre of Southern Nevada.
-$20
