In every city, there are twisting, turning alleys. Hidden in those dark corners, in the underbelly of large cities, lie small shops. They're hidden within their neighborhoods, well-protected from sight and only subtly advertised by a single sign - 'The Emporium'. Strangers come and go, and with them, even stranger things leave the small, well-appointed shops. Things from tea, to antiques, to drugs, to more wondrous things. Things that people only dream of - their greatest desires. Li specializes in reading people, in finding out what they most want. He has sucked men from the highest levels of politics, finance, and law into his web. They are indebted to him, after what he has given them - their deepest, darkest desires.
Naturally, the police are trying to figure out exactly what goes on in the shop - they have some proof, though not enough to arrest Li. There are rumors that the shop is a front for drugs, for human trafficking, and for the sale in generally illegal things.
I'm looking for someone to play either a cop investigating the case, a gangster looking to get money from Li, or a customer. Or anyone that you can think of, really, that would fit into the plot - could be a neighboring shop owner, or something.
