Ashmore City was in for a night of unparalleled extravagance and mystery as Club Lazarus, renowned for its opulent events, hosted an unprecedented masquerade party and murder mystery. The event, aptly named "Masques et Désordre," promised an evening of formal dress, top-shelf drinks, fine dining, and larger than life theatrics that left no expense spared.

Lilith Castellanos, the esteemed Manager of Lazarus, took charge as the event coordinator, ensuring that every detail was meticulously planned to captivate and surprise the guests. Little did they know that the night would take an unexpected turn, plunging them into a realm of darkness and intrigue.

Rather than the anticipated homage to an Agatha Christie masterpiece, attendees found themselves witnesses to a grisly and shocking scene. Center stage, a life-like impaled werewolf stunned the crowd, leaving them in a state of bewilderment. Confusion swept through the room, eliciting mixed reactions from the guests, with some retreating towards the exit in a panic. However, their escape was thwarted when an actor or contortionist, whose identity remains unknown, began a startling transformation into a creature resembling a wolf before their very eyes.

Amidst the pandemonium, an even more disconcerting turn of events unfolded. What appeared to be blood began to cascade down from above, drenching the guests' clothing and creating a treacherously slippery surface. Panic swept through the crowd, plunging the event into widespread chaos and confusion.

Fire Chief Ming Yang, who happened to be in attendance, swiftly took command of the scene, displaying remarkable leadership as witnesses attested to his decisive actions. Chief Yang promptly contacted the Ashmore Police Department (APD) and ensured the establishment of clean-up areas for the affected guests, mitigating the risk of further accidents.

Anya Moretti, one of the startled guests, commented, "Lazarus certainly spares no expense in making a memorable event. Sure, they advertised a murder mystery, but werewolves were unexpected. Their actors and effects had quite a few people running for the doors. Though, I've half a mind to send them a bill for my dry cleaning after that blood shower stunt."

However, not all attendees were as forgiving. An anonymous guest voiced their discontent, stating, "There should have been more notice about the extent of the murder mystery. It was irresponsible to allow the destruction of guests' personal property. I will not be patronizing their establishment in the future."

In response to the mayhem that unfolded, Manager Lilith Castellanos issued a sincere apology on behalf of Lazarus Nightclub. "Lazarus extends their deepest apologies for causing disorder and panic within the club," she affirmed. "The club will gladly reimburse the dry cleaning costs of the attending guests. All attendees need to bring their receipt to Lazarus, and we will honor the reimbursement."

When approached for comments, Chief Blacach of the APD adhered to the department's policy of refraining from discussing ongoing investigations. He did, however, assure the public that there was no immediate danger to their safety. Chief Blacach encouraged anyone with relevant information to contact the APD's non-emergency line, urging their assistance in shedding light on the perplexing events that transpired.

Despite the unexpected turn of events, Club Lazarus reassures its patrons that it will resume full operations on Tuesday, ready to continue delivering unparalleled experiences within its lavish confines. As the investigation into the masquerade party and murder mystery unfolds, Ashmore City remains captivated, awaiting answers to the enigma that unfolded within the walls of Club Lazarus.
