"Welcome to the Gator Bar, home to the Gator Sandwhich" - Roflgator's greeting
The Lair of Roflgator was Roflgators first world for VRChat created in Unity in 2018 which replaced the main location for The Gator RP Group's gatherings, which previously was The Great Pug. Today the map is no longer the location of the RP.
This article describes the state of things as they were throughout March-July 2018.
What is The Lair of Roflgator?
The Lair is a map in VRChat that was constructed by 'Rob' Roflgator by ordering random stuff from Menards, Craigslist, and Costco. He got help from WiFiPunk to construct the place, such as lighting and some interior decoration. It is a relatively large map to navigate but offers great views into outer space and has a crudely cozy but lively atmosphere.
In RP, since Rob's Great Pug burned down, this place has been the go-to replacement location and meeting place for The Great Pug RP Collective. The multipurpose location serves as Rob's headquarters and base of operations.

Main sections and features
The Lair of Roflgator features several sections with their own specialty purposes.
The Gator Bar
Bar & grill, featuring a large dance floor. To the left is a lounge group with a "hot tub" and pole for construction purpose only To the right is a private bedroom that can be reserved for VIP.
Featuring the most exquisite animated space wallpaper and a greeting desk where the manager sits in front of a lovely blinking portrait of Roflgator.
Currently, Wooks the penguin has the position of manager.
The personal table
A table with two chairs and a couch sitting on an island surrounded by water and a photo of an eye on the wall that is actually the drain in a bath tub. Very artsy indeed.
The personal table area features a sofa and an infamously haunted chair. The haunted chair was actually a hilarious week-long troll by Space Whale.
After the welcoming hall and the personal table, there is a secondary bar sitting in the middle of the room. To the right from the welcoming bar is a hallway - with a patio that offers exquisite views into outer space - that leads to the personal bedroom of Roflgator and Ikumi. To the left of the bar is the dining and lounging group. Behind the bar is the bathroom.
Dining and lounge group
This room has several seating groups and stalls for dining. This also features a support pole.
A wide room with a mirror, table set, flat screen TV, a stool for R3dz to sit on, and a whiteboard with 'keys to success' on how to efficiently operate the bar. This also features a support pole.
Church of Blue Man (Formerly)
See main article Blue Man Cult. This of course also features a support pole.
The room features a mirror, a cage for his wife Ikumi (w/ lights), a flat screen TV, and of course the bed with a portrait of Rob's bunny bot form hanging over it. This also features a support pole, right in front of the bed.
Secret Fighting Pit
Hidden behind a wall near the entrance is a secret fighting pit ('The Pit') used for Bloodsports UFC-style fighting. Usually, only fighters that wear leg trackers are allowed to participate. Exhibition and title matches are regularly held here.
Many spectators tend to place bets on these rounds, so be sure to attend!
Renovations and upgrades
Dungeon & Roflgator's throne room
On June 17th, 2018, Roflgator would remove the Blue Man Church and replace the section of the map with an underground dungeon that he calls a storage room. Attached to the dungeon is Roflgator's throne room, complete with a stone throne flanked by two dragons spewing fire. Behind the throne, the imposing effigy of Blue Man remains, continuously watching over Roflgator's back.
June 26th renovation:
Rob debuted a new basketball court on the roof of the lair. The basketball is actually a galaxy ball.
Rob also introduced a so-called "hot tub". However this (scuffed) hot tub is short and ragged, resembling more a large ankle bath than a steamy oasis for bar-goers to relax. He has promised to get a better hot tub installed, eventually.
Located in the throne room, the six-sided dice was introduced on June 26th as a way of dealing with contentious situations. Each of the dice's sides are used as a form to punish someone that's done something off-putting or controversial. The dice is only used as a last straw and is mostly used to decide someone's fate.
- Side 1 - The Boot. The person that the dice is rolled for gets kicked from the lobby.
- Side 2 - Jail. The person that the dice is rolled for gets put in the jail cell in the dungeon.
- Side 3 - Date. The person the dice is rolled for is forced to go on a date with someone not of their choosing, usually someone unsuspecting.
- Side 4 - Dance. The person the dice is rolled for is forced to dance for a target individual or the group, usually in a seductive or embarrassing fashion.
- Sides 5 & 6 - Safe. Nothing happens and that person is spared for that roll.
July 2nd renovation:
Rob underwent a renovation of the welcoming bar, increasing it's size and presence and adding new dishes and larger plates. He would also add an alternate access to the bathrooms and actual stairs to the roof to access the basketball court.
July 6th addition:
Rob would replace the old Gator Bar counter in the club with a new stage for performances. He intended it to be a musical performance stage, but his wife Ikumi said it resembled more of a comedy club stage due to its confined, box-like dimensions. Nevertheless, he would keep the new stage, promising to make it better in the future.
- On Joey Bagels' first visit to the place and was given a tour by Roflgator himself. Joey fell in love with the hospitality and service. He won a bet against WiFiPunk when Harly and SpazKoga fought in a title match in the Pit. Since then, Joey has regularly sought to pay visits to the lair to see what shenanigans are going on.
- You can watch the video of Joey's first experience at the lair here
- It is seen by some as a rival to Club Rogue. Only one of these places at least has a bathroom.
- Yes, the bathroom as a support beam, too.
- Sundays are double-priced drinks day. "God RPers" pay quadruple.
- Miggy can sometimes be seen spying on Rob and his group on the map. It's a mystery as to what Miggy's agenda is.
- It's become a regular occurrence where Rob would sight Miggy and attempt to catch him for an explanation, chasing him across the roof of the lair.
- WiFiPunk and JKLMNOPaige were the first to ERP in Roflgator's bed.
- There are various easter eggs and inside jokes hidden throughout the map.
- It does not have any power sockets/outlets. Rob claims all the lights are LED (Is that really how LED installation works?)
- Don't read behind the whiteboard.
- Don't ask what the big generator-looking thing is in the basement. (Spoiler: It's not a generator).
- Out of character, Roflgator spent time building it and is using it as a multipurpose map for roleplaying. He got help adding lighting, music and various effects by WiFiPunk. He is always adding new rooms and features to the map while also optimizing in order to reduce lag as much as possible.
- See The Great Pug RP Collective for more information about the roleplaying group.
