Indeed, those gambling plaques turned out to be a source of mayhem, as Ghost attempted to steal a few million dollars worth (about ten I think). Ghost of course did some wonderful slight of hand. all while Chesa was on stage. Well, someone found out, and poor Dominka was getting lovely precognitive visions of everything from severe interrogations to being taken to a field and killed.
