From Mazeworld

[14:43] <&Hebizuka> *Welcome back to the Mazes, Tasia. You have visited 317 rooms so far. Next special room at the 320th. You are currently feeling perfectly healthy and you are satiated. Your ally Telma seems to be okay - much better than last time at least. !mrooms3 to continue.* [14:43] <Tasia> !mrooms3 [14:43] <&Hebizuka> [ Tasia ] Left door: 2370 - Front door: 1893 - Right door: 4403 - Roomstyle: 300 [14:44] * Tasia cracks her knuckles and heads right. [14:45] <&Hebizuka> *You barge inside of a classroom. Tables and chairs lined up in front of the teacher's desk and a chalkboard. There is a shiny item on the desk...* [14:45] * Tasia peers at the shiny, curious. [14:45] <&Hebizuka> [Valuable] Metal - Golden lighter - Value 300 P$ - Weight: 0.1 [14:47] * Tasia takes this and sticks it into her pack. [14:49] <&Hebizuka> [Pack/Main] 113.03/115 [14:50] <Tasia> !mrooms3 [14:50] <&Hebizuka> [ Tasia ] Left door: 7124 - Front door: 4883 - Right door: 5758 - Roomstyle: 46 [14:50] <Tasia> Left door. [14:53] <&Hebizuka> *An electrical room with only one door away. You spot a power control computer, and as usual you hear the hum of the generators working in the background. The room appears to be otherwise empty.* [14:54] <Tasia> "Hmmm..." Tasia takes a look at the computer, seeing if it's logged in. [14:58] <&Hebizuka> *The monitor is woken up out of idle mode, only to ask for a login and password.* [14:59] <Tasia> "Awww. At least they're secure." [14:59] <Tasia> !mrooms1 [14:59] <&Hebizuka> [ Tasia ] Unique door: 165 - Roomstyle: 342 [14:59] * Tasia heads forward. [15:01] <&Hebizuka> *You barge inside a hiring bureau. On the left, eight cages, with various creatures inside. On the right, a desk, with a hirer busy on his computer, as well as a large classifieds board.* [15:02] * Tasia takes a peek at the board. [15:19] <&Hebizuka> *The board lists five posts.* [15:19] <&Hebizuka> =Classifieds boards= [15:19] <&Hebizuka> Post 1: SRT Guard desperately seeking to buy .357/.38 6-round speedloaders for Manurhin MR 73 revolver - will pay good money [15:19] <&Hebizuka> Post 2: Yousei selling cheap, used load-bearing gear (FS Albatross rucksack, RM/OMON tactical vest, Gunner assault pack) [15:19] <&Hebizuka> Post 3: Tengu selling used 5.45x39mm silencer, very good quality, no longer needed due to selling away all my 5.45 gear [15:19] <&Hebizuka> Post 4: Mercenary looking for 43mm VGM-93.200 tear gas rounds - ready to pay for as many as possible. [15:19] <&Hebizuka> Post 5: Student looking to buy any type of headgear to fill up collection - send offer if interested, prices negotiable [15:24] <Tasia> "Mmm. Telma, interested in any of these? Like, say, the backpack offer?" [15:25] <~SU_Tempest> [Telma] Hmm, isn't the Albatross a pretty big pack? I could probably use one of these yeah. [15:26] <Tasia> "Sounds good, then." [15:27] <Tasia> "Excuse me, Hirer?" [15:27] <~SU_Tempest> [Hirer] Yes, how may I help you? [15:27] <Tasia> "I'd like to contact one of the sellers on the classifieds board, please." [15:28] <~SU_Tempest> [Hirer] Sure, which post? [15:28] <Tasia> "The second, advertisement for backpacks." [15:31] <~SU_Tempest> [Hirer] OK. One moment, calling the seller. He's gonna be teleported here in a moment. *The hirer grabs a phone, tips the number in at record speed, and calls.* [15:34] <&Hebizuka> *A moment afterwards, a diminutive yousei appears on the hirer's telepad, wearing two of the items for sale and holding the hird in his hands.* [15:34] <Tasia> "Ah, hello there! Yes, we're interested in backpack aquisition." [15:36] <~SU_Tempest> [Yousei] Um, y-yes, hello. Which one were you interested in?... [15:37] <Tasia> "The Albatross - err, whichever pack is bigger, I suppose. And what sort of pockets does the vest have?" [15:37] * Tasia glances at Telma, wondering if she might want that too. [15:38] <~SU_Tempest> *The yousei lays all three out on the floor for you to examine.* [15:38] <&Hebizuka> [LBE] (Backpack) FS Albatross rucksack: Capacity 70 units + Spare wpn (1x C3 wpn only) [15:38] <&Hebizuka> [LBE] (Tactical vest) RM/OMON: Capacity 2 units + Ammo 1 (4 mags only, max tier: Large) + Ammo 2 (4 pistol mags only, max tier: Small) + Spare wpn. (2x C4 wpn only) [15:38] <&Hebizuka> [LBE] (Backpack) Gunner assault pack: Capacity 20 units + Ammo (Belts only, max [15:38] <&Hebizuka> 2) [15:40] <Tasia> "Mmmkay, well, we definitely want the Albatross back anyway." [15:41] <Tasia> "How much are you asking for it?" [15:41] <~SU_Tempest> [Telma] I think I'm good with my current vest. [15:42] <~SU_Tempest> [Yousei] 570 P$, u-um, if possible, transferred to my bank account. [15:43] <~SU_Tempest> [Hirer] No problem, I'll take care of the phone call to the bank. Ma'am, just give me your name and your authorization for a money transfer and the sale can be done. [15:44] <Tasia> "Tasia Vakilaainen, and you have my approval." [15:45] <&Hebizuka> [Bank account] Balance: 30786 P$ (-570). [15:45] <&Hebizuka> *You have purchased an FS Albatross backpack on the classifieds board.* [15:45] <&Hebizuka> *Telma immediately starts transferring items from her old backpack to the new one...* [15:47] <Tasia> "I wonder if we should check the people for hire, while we're at it - I mean, we'll have a pack to equip them with, and armor.." [15:48] <~SU_Tempest> [Telma] I might get jealous. *Snarky tone* [15:48] <~SU_Tempest> *The yousei thanks you , then takes his merchandise and is teleported back, while the hirer updates the classifieds post.* [15:48] <Tasia> "What, you don't want a maid of your own?" [15:49] * Tasia waves at the yousei happily, as he leaves. [15:49] <~SU_Tempest> [Telma] I haven't been promoted to head maid. *Smirk* [15:50] <Tasia> "Hey, I haven't gotten any promotions at all since the day I got here." [15:53] <Tasia> "Hey, it's up to you I guess. I'm just thinking that it couldn't hurt to add some extra hands." [15:54] <&Hebizuka> =Creatures for sale= [15:54] <&Hebizuka> A) German shepherd dog [15:54] <&Hebizuka> B) Magus Magician [15:54] <&Hebizuka> C) Wyvern [15:54] <&Hebizuka> D) Domesticated lynx [15:54] <&Hebizuka> E) Yousei [15:54] <&Hebizuka> F) Domesticated headcrab [15:54] <&Hebizuka> G) Assault mercenary [15:54] <&Hebizuka> H) Succubus [15:55] * Tasia examines the magician and assault mercenary, out of curiosity. [15:57] <&Hebizuka> *The Magus Magician appears to be a middle-aged, latino male humanoid. He is tall, of average constitution, with shaved black hair, a pair of red eyes behind glasses, and a burn mark on the face.* [15:58] <&Hebizuka> *The mercenary appears to be an adult, asian female. She is dwarvish, of athletic constitution, with short, gray hair, a pair of gray eyes concealed behind glasses, as well as a partially visible scar on the left hand.* [16:00] * Tasia approaches the mercenary. "Hello. What sets you apart from the other hiring choices here?" [16:01] <~SU_Tempest> [Merc] Uhhh. What do you mean? You wanna know why I'm behind bars between miss sex demon and the headhumper? [16:01] <Tasia> "I was thinking more in line with your skills.... but that could work too." [16:03] <~SU_Tempest> [Merc] Oh my skills huh. I'm good with a rifle, I'm good with a pistol; I know how to kill people and I do that without being too nosy. But some dickwads didn't like that I shot the police chief in their local sector. I mean yeah, sure, I was told he's a total dickwad, and the 3000 P$ promised to do it sounded sexy, but all I got was prison instead of money. [16:04] <Tasia> "Hm! And why'd you do that?" [16:04] <Tasia> "I mean, other than the money." [16:05] <~SU_Tempest> [Merc] What else is there? I'm a merc. Well, I was a merc before this shit. I don't really care why I do it. I'm paid, I do it. But here, I wasn't paid. Just promised big money which I needed badly. [16:05] <~SU_Tempest> [Merc] Since I was a model prisoner, I managed to leave prison to earn the right to my own little cell here in this hiring bureau. Officially, I'm for sale. If you wanted to buy me so I could suck your dick all day long for 15 P$ a week, I wouldn't be able to say no. [16:06] <~SU_Tempest> [Hirer] We talked about this already, I want you to be reinstated properly. If someone wants you, you have the right to name your price. [16:08] <Tasia> "Well, that sounds unfortunate... I suppose you're more wary now, though. Can you follow instructions and be more trustworthy than whoever got you into this mess?" [16:08] <~SU_Tempest> [Merc] *The merc girl shrugs.* Well I'm guessing that if you want to buy me from a hiring bureau, yer probably not trying to get me into shit. I'll do literally anything you want me to, just pay me every so often. [16:10] <Tasia> "Well, we can provide you with a pack and decent armor - and loan you a weapon until you can be outfitted with something of your own. And there's a fair chance of pretty good rewards down the line, too." [16:11] <~SU_Tempest> [Merc] That's mighty fine of you, considering all of my gear except my clothes were confiscated... The fuckers, they even took away my goddamn armor and helmet. [16:12] * Tasia nods. "Well, it's a good thing I've got spares then. So, what's your price?" [16:12] <&Hebizuka> *You realize all she's wearing is a PT T-Shirt, digital camouflage pants and a pair of military boots, but nothing else.* [16:13] <~SU_Tempest> [Merc] Honest? You really want me then? Damn nice. Well, before this shit happened, I was 600 P$ for 40 rooms, but honestly, considering you're going to loan me gear, I should probably lower my prices. How's 200 for a first contract? [16:13] <Tasia> "If you're up for a little treasure-hunting with occasional monster removal along the way, I'll call it a deal." [16:14] <Tasia> "800 P$ for the first 80, and then we can discuss things from there, then?" [16:17] <~SU_Tempest> [Merc] Damn. I'm all yours. What's your name? [16:17] <Tasia> "Anastasia Vakilaainen, call me Tasia though. Yours?" [16:20] <~SU_Tempest> [Merc] I got a really plain name. Lauren Smith. I got the nickname "Little Lauren" because I'm short as fuck, but hey, don't let that bother you. Doesn't mean I can't shoot. [16:21] <Tasia> "Doesn't bother me in the slightest. Maybe you'll be harder to hit." [16:22] <~SU_Tempest> *She smirks and chuckles.* [16:22] <Tasia> *To Hirer* "I suppose I'll take her, then - and this might be slightly annoying, but could you call the yousei back here and tell him that we want to buy his vest too?" [16:23] <~SU_Tempest> [Hirer] May I make the necessary calls and bank transfers then? [16:23] <Tasia> "If he doesn't mind all the running back and forth, anyhow..." [16:23] <Tasia> "Yes please." [16:23] * Tasia gets out some equipment for Lauren, once she's released (pastes incoming) [16:23] <Tasia> [Clothing] Body addon - Type-4 Kevlar vest (Upper body) - AC Kevlar-4 - Blunt-PROOF, Sharp-resistant, Piercing-resistant - Plate carrier - Weight: 9 - [Cond: Brand New] [16:23] <Tasia> [Clothing] Trauma plate - Light steel - Health: 30/30 HP / Pass-through threshold: 7+ dmg / Pain reduction: 0.20x - Weight: 3 [16:24] <Tasia> [Armor] SPECTRA helmet - AC Kevlar-3 - Blunt-PROOF, Sharp-PROOF, Piercing-resistant - Ballistic protective - Weight: 9 - [Cond: Good] [16:24] <Tasia> [Weapon] Class 4 - AN/M14 incendiary grenade. Causes a fiery explosion which may set on fire its victims. Weight: 3/item [16:24] <Tasia> [Weapon] Class 4 - MkIIIA2 high-explosive grenades. May damage targets with explosive power. Weight: 1/item [16:24] <Tasia> Telma's old backpack [16:28] * Tasia reluctantly unslings Whisper and sets it down for her, as well. "This is one of my favorites, so take care of it until you're set up with your own armaments." [16:31] <&Hebizuka> =Deducted from bank account:= [16:31] <&Hebizuka> RM/OMON vest from classifieds: 425 P$ [16:31] <&Hebizuka> Hiring "Little" Lauren Smith: 800 P$ for a 80-room contract [16:31] <&Hebizuka> *Remaining bank account balance: 29561 P$* [16:31] <Tasia> [x]Confirm [16:31] <&Hebizuka> *Please wait, creating "Little" Lauren's sheet.* [16:46] <&Hebizuka> *Lauren quietly wears all the armor you hand to her, and happily equips the offered grenades.* [16:47] <&Hebizuka> *She then looks at Whisper.* [16:47] <~SU_Tempest> [Lauren] Izzat your personal gun? It looks really pretty, customized an' all... [16:48] <Tasia> "Yeah, but I don't mind as long as you don't break it or pour lemon juice in it or anything." [16:49] <~SU_Tempest> [Lauren] Na, keep it. I insist. [16:50] <~SU_Tempest> [Lauren] Am pretty sure I'll find a piece for meself. Plus, I hate to use other people's stuff. Just ain't right. [16:50] <Tasia> "You've gotta use something." [16:51] <~SU_Tempest> [Lauren] Sure, yeah. Wouldn't wanna be useless after all. How about... this? [16:51] <~SU_Tempest> *She points at your knife, the KA-BAR.* [16:51] <~SU_Tempest> [Lauren] That'll do until I find my own. [16:51] <Tasia> "....If you insist." [16:51] * Tasia shrugs, handing it over. [16:52] * Tasia re-equips Whisper. [16:52] <&Hebizuka> *Lauren takes your KA-BAR, unsheathing it, observing it, then equipping it proper.* [16:53] <~SU_Tempest> [Lauren] Ma'am, sorry if it ain't my business but, why is your maid so heavily armed an' armored? [16:54] <Tasia> "That's my friend Telma Greenwell. She's more of a... former maid, I suppose." [16:55] <~SU_Tempest> [Telma] No, I'm totally still a maid. I just serve you, and I do a very different kind of cleaning. [16:55] <~SU_Tempest> *The merc smirks, appreciating the attitude.* [16:55] <Tasia> "Point taken, though I think grenades just trade one kind of mess for another..." [16:55] <Tasia> "Not complaining! ust don't light me on fire again, alright? That wasn't particularly fun." [16:56] <~SU_Tempest> [Telma] Hey, I'm sorry, okay? That was an accident. [16:56] <~SU_Tempest> [Lauren] Oh boy, what did I just sign up for. [16:59] <Tasia> "If things go the way thay should - and that's hardly guaranteed - you'll be glad you joined up." [16:59] <~SU_Tempest> [Telma] Ohh yeah. Do we keep it a surprise? [16:59] <Tasia> "It's lucrative." [16:59] <Tasia> "Well, I think.... it has been so far." [17:00] <Tasia> "Nothing illegal, mind you.... at least, not as far as I'm aware. Unless, y'know, it's necessary for some reason." [17:00] <~SU_Tempest> [Lauren] Do I look like I care about legality? If I ain't caught, we good. [17:01] <Tasia> "Ah, hell. The main thing on the plate right now is helping an investigation that could lead to some treasure." [17:01] * Tasia nods. [17:01] <Tasia> "I hear you there - I just am sure you aren't in a hurry to go back to the cage." [17:02] <Tasia> "So! Shall we be going?" [17:03] <~SU_Tempest> [Lauren] Sure, if yall want to go then I'll follow.

[17:04] <Tasia> Right door. [17:06] <&Hebizuka> *Next special room at the 328th (in 8 rooms).* [17:07] <&Hebizuka> *A regular, featureless room. You spot absolutely nothing in here, except perhaps for some food.* [17:07] * Tasia examines the food. [17:08] <&Hebizuka> [Food] Vegetable - Carrot. 25kcal [17:09] <Tasia> "Ah, the treasure hoard already! I guess we can pack up and go home now." [17:09] <~SU_Tempest> *Telma elbows you. Lauren does more eyebrow raising.* [17:09] <Tasia> "I'm joking." [17:10] <Tasia> "Oh gods, don't take off running." [17:10] * Tasia tosses the carrot to Lauren. "I've got plenty more food in my pack, but it can't hurt."

Didn't expect my road to riches and freedom to start with floor food. [17:11] <&Hebizuka> *She packs it nevertheless.* [17:12] <Tasia> "Hey, it was probaly grown in real dirt! That's luxury food." [17:14] <&Hebizuka> *You arrive in a shrine. As always, an altar, a donation box, an omikuji vending machine, and the shrine maiden to go with it all.* [17:15] * Tasia greets the shrine maiden."Blessings to you." [17:16] <~SU_Tempest> [Miko] Greetings to you three. How may I help you all? [17:17] <Tasia> "I'd like a fortune, please. Keep the change." Tasia hands over 100 P$. [17:19] <Tasia> "The Gods have been generous to me for some reason, so I'd might as well return the favor when I can." [17:19] <~SU_Tempest> [Miko] My, that's very nice of you! [17:20] <~SU_Tempest> *The shrine maiden uses some of the coins you donated her to fetch you an omikuji reading, which she offers you.* [17:20] <Tasia> @omikuji [17:20] <MazeBot> Small blessing! [17:20] <~SU_Tempest> *The shrine maiden is all smiles and bows to you.* [17:20] * Tasia bows back. "A small blessing...!" [17:20] <&Hebizuka> *Total money carried remaining: 1906 P$* [17:21] * Tasia goes up to the altar to offer a prayer for safety and luck. [17:22] * Tasia will offer something small, first...

[17:49] <&Hebizuka> *Lauren grabs the AA-12 with a wicked smile on the face.* [17:50] <Tasia> "Take good care of it." [17:50] <~SU_Tempest> [Lauren] No pun intended, but HELL yes I will. [17:50] * Tasia hands her the mags and ammo, too. [17:54] <&Hebizuka> *She equips the AA-12, but realizes none of the mags can fit anywhere in her vest. So she puts them in her backpack along with the shells.* [17:57] <Tasia> "This certainly is going to help, indeed..." [17:58] <Tasia> "Thank you for letting us use your shrine, miss miko!" [17:58] <~SU_Tempest> [Miko] Oh, you are more than welcome.

[18:16] <~SU_Tempest> [Telma] Nah. [18:16] <~SU_Tempest> [Lauren] Sure, so I have something to munch on in the bag, just in case. [18:17] <Tasia> "Okay, get something and I'll cover you."

[18:55] <~SU_Tempest> *She loads each of the magazines, slaps one inside of the Mark III, and equips it, scooping up the extra two mags in her vest.* [18:57] <~SU_Tempest> [Lauren] Oh. Yeah.

[20:14] <Tasia> "Not me." [20:14] <~SU_Tempest> [Lauren] Negative, sis. I need 12 gauge and .22 LR, apparently. *Snarky* [20:20] <&Hebizuka> *Both allies leave the M1A behind. Moving on to the next room...* [20:27] <&Hebizuka> *You and your allies enter inside a fully renovated, and even modernized library. Prisca's old book den became a snazzy, sharp-looking place with a lot of light, clear-colored furniture, brand new computer, and all books and objects where they should be. You see Prisca happily working at her desk, and you see someone familiar standing next to the desk, with whom Prisca is chatting.* [20:32] <Tasia> "Prisca! How's it going? Any new developments?" [20:33] <~SU_Tempest> [Prisca] Hi Tasia! I was just speaking with Brother Minik here, about the arrangement to have the Brotherhood defend my library, so that I can go out more often with Marcus on searches and whatnot. [20:33] <~SU_Tempest> [Minik] Greetings, Sister Tasia. It is good to see you again. *Respectful bow.* [20:34] <~SU_Tempest> *The librarian then pauses, and reaches for something under the desk, which she shows you: the completed crown, adorned fully with all of its jewels!* [20:35] <Tasia> "Beautiful!" [20:36] <~SU_Tempest> [Prisca] I'm just waiting for Marcus to return now- [20:36] <&Hebizuka> *Loud door slam noise, which scares the wits out of Prisca.* [20:36] <&Hebizuka> *Precisely, it's Marcus coming in.* [20:37] <~SU_Tempest> [Marcus] I FOUND IT! I FOUND THE PLACE! [20:37] <Tasia> "Oh my. It looks like we're right on time." [20:38] <~SU_Tempest> [Marcus] I finally found the entrance to Maratuxa's Tomb! Come on, Prisca! And- oh! Well, Tasia, come along! You have more than deserved it, after all! [20:39] <~SU_Tempest> *He rushes towards the room's telepad in order to set it up. Minik gives a respectful nod, as a way to remember everyone that he and his fellow brothers are providing security, and that they have nothing to worry about.* [20:40] <Tasia> "Suuuure thing! Do you have any more information, other than the location?" [20:41] <~SU_Tempest> [Marcus] That the place is probably trapped and infested with monsters, but that the first room itself, the entrance, is safe. Other than that, I didn't want to explore everything. [20:41] <~SU_Tempest> [Marcus] After all, all of you guys deserve to see for yourselves! [20:42] <Tasia> "You mean that you needed heavily armed backup. You don't need to understate." [20:42] <Tasia> "After all, we've got these guns for a reason, right?" [20:42] <~SU_Tempest> [Marcus] I guess you're right, yeah. [20:45] <~SU_Tempest> [Lauren] Hold the horses, what's all this about? [20:46] <Tasia> "Recovering some old treasure and putting history right, more or less." [20:46] <~SU_Tempest> [Lauren] Big treasure? [20:47] <Tasia> "Possibly so." [20:48] <~SU_Tempest> [Lauren] Sounds cool. I'm down. [20:50] <&Hebizuka> *The telepad is ready. You may go whenever you feel you're ready.* [20:55] * Tasia steps on the telepad, waiting for the others to get on as well. Ready! [20:58] <&Hebizuka> *You, your allies, followed by Prisca and Marcus, all huddle up on the telepad, which transports you... in a large room with yellow, rocky walls. Ahead is the entrance to the Maratuxa Tomb, a huge gate of grey rock which had faded with time into a brown hue. There is a huge, crown-shaped keyhole in the dead center. * [20:59] <~SU_Tempest> [Marcus] Prisca, if you would be so kind... [21:01] <&Hebizuka> *The librarian scuttles to the entrance, and inserts the crown in its intended place. The gate then slowly rumbles itself open, inviting everyone to enter in a sort of antichamber.* [21:02] * Tasia reaches into her pack, getting out a yohimbine vial. It's not ideal, but it'll help her stay alert. [21:03] * Tasia swallows the contents. [21:03] <Tasia> !mrooms1 [21:03] <&Hebizuka> [ Tasia ] Unique door: 6557 - Roomstyle: 221 [21:03] <Tasia> Forward! [21:04] <Tasia> "Watch your step, everyone." [21:04] <&Hebizuka> *You swallow the yohimbine vial. You feel a strong sensation of sensitivity and alertness. The substance also artificially mildly turns you on.* [21:06] <Tasia> Could have been worse. [21:09] <&Hebizuka> *You make it inside an antichamber. There are no outstanding features, outside of large engravings and statues of people dressed in otherworldly, ancient era clothing. The engravings are written in a weird, seemingly undecipherable alphabet. Prisca reads them, trying to make sense out of it. There is also only one door ahead.* [21:10] <~SU_Tempest> [Prisca] OK, so... Ahead is a sort of morturary chamber, but there's also a warning message, saying that "unauthorized people will not be"... er... I don't get this last word. "Tolerated"?... [21:12] <Tasia> "I think that King Maratuxa is just going to have to accept that times are changing." [21:12] <Tasia> !mrooms1 [21:12] <&Hebizuka> [ Tasia ] Unique door: 2894 - Roomstyle: 560 [21:12] <~SU_Tempest> [Prisca] Anyway, look at this symbol here. Do you see those nine squares? They represent the mortuary chamber's map. It's a sort of hub composed of nine rooms. According to this text here, there are two keys, and one of the rooms contains the locks. They lock the door towards the actual grave. They also warn that only the official royal gravekeepers are allowed to go any further, but... [21:12] <~SU_Tempest> They're kinda dead by now. [21:13] <Tasia> "And what do we plan to do aout the locks?" [21:13] <~SU_Tempest> [Prisca] Let's imagine we give a letter to each of those rooms. According to the map, the door ahead leads into door D, the left square on the map. A is top-left, B is up, C is top-right, and so on. Get me? [21:13] <Tasia> "If all else fails we could blast our way in, but I'd really hate to." [21:14] <~SU_Tempest> [Prisca] Nononono. Let's find those keys. They have got to be inside. I don't see where else they might be. [21:14] <Tasia> "Okay then. Let's go." [21:14] * Tasia pushes at the door ahead. [21:16] <Tasia> Going forward [21:17] <&Hebizuka> *YOU ARE NOW IN MARATUXA'S MORTUARY CHAMBER. This is a 9-room hub. Navigating within the rooms of this hub will not count towards rooms visited until you exit through the locked door.* [21:19] <&Hebizuka> *You are currently in Room D. This room appears to be empty. There are three doors here (counting out the one leading to the antichamber you just came from), which lead to rooms A, E and G.* [21:21] <Tasia> "Hmmm, I suspect that we should circle around the whole hub before going to the center." [21:21] * Tasia takes a left turn to Room A. [21:23] <&Hebizuka> *You are now in Room A. You find a huge, rusty steel key on the floor, with more of the weird symbols engraved on it.* [21:24] * Tasia examines it carefully, before picking it up and handing it over to Prisca. "Key here." [21:30] <Tasia> "Hopefully this is what we're looking for." [21:30] <~SU_Tempest> [Prisca] Yup, this is one of the keys. We're looking for the other twin, now. [21:30] <&Hebizuka> *There are 2 doors: towards D, and B.* [21:31] * Tasia nods, and goes on to room B. [21:31] <Tasia> "Clockwise sweep..." [21:33] <&Hebizuka> *Room B. Through a streak of complete chance, the second key is right here in this room!* [21:34] <~SU_Tempest> [Lauren] Well that settles that. Now to find where they go in. [21:34] <Tasia> "Hey, here's the second key... it'd be best to check all the rooms anyway, I'd think... to avoid surprises." [21:35] <&Hebizuka> *The doors here lead to: A, C and E.* [21:35] * Tasia hands it to Prisca like the first, and goes on to room C. [21:37] <&Hebizuka> *Room C. This room is infested with two Wyverns!* [21:37] * Tasia gasps in surprise, and motions to the group to get to cover! [21:37] <Tasia> @cover [21:37] <MazeBot> A metallic container (Health: 40, LDV modifier: -3. AC Eqv: Kevlar-3. Pass-through threshold: 10+ dmg.

[21:40] * Tasia crouches behind the rusted iron bin, rifle at the ready. [21:42] <&Hebizuka> *The wyverns both unleash fireblasts in your direction!* [21:42] <&Hebizuka> *Wyvern #1...* [21:42] <&Hebizuka> @roll 2d6 [21:42] <MazeBot> Hebizuka: 9 [21:43] <Tasia> As long as it doesn't melt the bin, hopefully we'll be okay... [21:44] <&Hebizuka> *The fireball is huge! The entire room's temperature can be felt increasing under the deluge of fire - but the container shields your group from damage!* [21:44] <&Hebizuka> *Wyvern #2...* [21:44] <&Hebizuka> @roll 2d6 [21:44] <MazeBot> Hebizuka: 7 [21:44] <&Hebizuka> *Another hit, which the container takes. It becomes difficult to even touch the container, which gets warmer by the second!* [21:45] <&Hebizuka> *Already the container looks like it took a severe beating from the fireblasts, but it can probably still withstand another attack like this. Once.* [21:45] <&Hebizuka> *End of Turn 1.* [21:45] <&Hebizuka> *Turn 2. What is your next move?* [21:46] * Tasia rises up with her ARX and fires 10 rounds, full-auto, at the first wyvern's head. "Take the second one!" [21:47] <&Hebizuka> *Telma raises her WA2000, deploys her bipod on the hot piece of cover, and attempts a singular headshot on the second Wyvern, using her scope.* [21:48] <&Hebizuka> *Lauren says something along the lines of 'Finally some action', before aiming the AA-12 at the first Wyvern and firing off six shells in full-auto, aiming at the abdomen.* [21:49] <&Hebizuka> *Prisca brings up her Saiga-12K, aims at #2's head, and fires twice, also using her bipod.* [21:50] <&Hebizuka> *Marcus raises his Mk18, and dumps 12 rounds in full-auto at #2.* [21:50] <&Hebizuka> *Both wyverns continue to try dousing the world in fire, starting with your container.* [21:51] <&Hebizuka> *Order this turn: Wyvern2, Marcus, Wyvern1, Prisca, Tasia, Telma, Lauren.* [21:52] <&Hebizuka> *Wyvern #2...* [21:52] <&Hebizuka> @roll 2d6 [21:52] <MazeBot> Hebizuka: 6 [21:53] <&Hebizuka> *The blast of fire misses, the dragon aims too low and instead scorches the dusty ground.* [21:53] <&Hebizuka> *Marcus' turn...* [21:53] <&Hebizuka> @roll 12#2d6 [21:53] <MazeBot> Hebizuka: 8;5;5;6;5;8;7;5;7;11;7;9 [21:56] <&Hebizuka> *Shots 1-4: Hit, Miss, Miss, Miss* [21:56] <&Hebizuka> *Shots 5-8, vs Rear left leg: Miss, Hit, Miss, Miss* [21:56] <&Hebizuka> *Shots 9-12, vs Front left leg: Miss, Hit, Miss, Hit* [21:56] <&Hebizuka> *Total hits: 4/12 (1 body, 1 RL leg, 2 FL leg)* [21:58] <&Hebizuka> *Unfortunately, the low amount of hits, as well as their location, did little significant damage to the dragon.* [22:00] <&Hebizuka> *Wyvern #1...* [22:00] <&Hebizuka> @roll 2d6 [22:00] <MazeBot> Hebizuka: 6 [22:00] <&Hebizuka> *Another miss, more groundscorching.* [22:00] <&Hebizuka> *Prisca's turn...* [22:00] <&Hebizuka> @roll 2#2d6 [22:00] <MazeBot> Hebizuka: 10;5 [22:01] <&Hebizuka> *Shots 1-2: Hit (14 flech), Hit (7 flech)* [22:04] <&Hebizuka> *The librarian manages to pepper the crap out of that dragon's skull, the deadly flechettes mangling it despite thick skin and even thicker flesh!

Do you want to finish clearing the rest of this hub, or just go for the loot and hope we don't get blindsided from the rear?" [22:16] <~SU_Tempest> [Marcus] Let's play it safe, we should probably kill whatever else is lurking. With the noise we made, they probably know we're here. [22:17] <Tasia> "Sounds like a plan, then." [22:17] <&Hebizuka> *2 doors, which lead to B and F.* [22:17] * Tasia goes on forward around the perimiter, to room F. [22:19] <~SU_Tempest> [Lauren] Holy shit, this is EXCITING.

Telma and Lauren retrieve their gear.* [23:09] <~SU_Tempest> [Prisca] Whuh? [23:09] * Tasia swaps a new magazine in from her tacvest, putting the empty one back in its place. [23:09] <~SU_Tempest> [Marcus] Don't worry, Tasia is too awesome for us to get killed now. [23:10] <~SU_Tempest> [Lauren] Yo, Tasia, are you some kind of competition shooter? Cause that was some insanely fast draw right there. [23:10] <Tasia> "I just got lucky... wow. Glad you're okay. That scared me." [23:10] <Tasia> "Adrenaline, I guess."

Finally we can go on forwards! [23:14] <Tasia> Which room does the locked door lead to? [23:17] <Tasia> "Okay, go ahead and unlock it - I'll keep an eye on the other doors." [23:17] <~SU_Tempest> [Prisca] Behind this door awaits the actual grave room, and according to the legends, the remains of the King, and the treasure! [23:20] <&Hebizuka> *Prisca shoves in the two heavy keys, and with Marcus' help, cranks them in the lock, prompting the door to open up.* [23:22] <~SU_Tempest> [Prisca] It's open! Oh gosh, I'm getting giddy.

[00:40] <&Hebizuka> *Telma sets down the WA2000, aims at #2's head after deploying the bipod, and doesn't bother doing an accurate scoped shot; she just magdumps everything she's got left in the mag.* [00:41] <&Hebizuka> *Lauren continues firing at #2, but this time, in semi-auto. She still doesn't pay attention to how many rounds she fires, and just presses the trigger repeatedly as fast as she can. It lowers the ROF, sure...* [00:44] <&Hebizuka> *Marcus aims at #1, switches to the underbarrel shotgun, and dumps all 3 of his shells at the creature's head.* [00:45] <&Hebizuka> *Prisca aims at #2 now, doing the same thing she did to #1: 4 shots to the head.* [00:46] <&Hebizuka> *Roc #1 will attempt another talon strike, this time aimed at YOU!* [00:46] <&Hebizuka> *Roc #2 will attempt to peck Prisca with its enormous beak.* [00:47] <&Hebizuka> *Order this turn: Marcus, Roc#2, You, Roc#1, Lauren, Telma, Prisca.* [00:48] <&Hebizuka> *Marcus' turn...* [00:48] <~SU_Tempest> [Marcus] Come on, you big fucking blockhead bird...

[02:10] * Tasia peeks into the safe! [02:10] <~SU_Tempest> [Prisca] "However, it is but a small compensation, as I have foreseen the awakening of greater evils. I have predicted that whoever is the first to discover my remains is the one these evils are tied to. The destiny of our world is in the hands of this Chosen One, as well as the burden of defending it against the malevolent forces menacing it." [02:10] <~SU_Tempest> [Prisca] "May these riches and your own inner strengths prepare you for the fights to come. These forces are of unreal might, and may be unlike anything you may have faced up until now." [02:11] <Tasia> "Wow, that sounds cheery. At least Maratuxa is on our side, though." [02:12] <~SU_Tempest> [Prisca] Just what are those greater evils he's talking about?... [02:12] <Tasia> "I haven't a clue." [02:12] <~SU_Tempest> [Lauren] HOLY MOTHERFUCKIN' MOLLY, GUYS! COME LOOK AT THIS TREASURE! [02:13] <Tasia> "Lauren has a point - let's get the treasure before any more birds come around." [02:14] <&Hebizuka> =Maratuxa's treasure= [02:14] <&Hebizuka> [Valuable] Metal - Silver bar, 500g ingot - Value 375-750 P$ (1d376+374) - [Quantity: 13] [02:14] <&Hebizuka> [Valuable] Metal - Gold bar, 500g ingot - Value 1000-4000 P$ (1d3001+999) - [Quantity: 8] [02:14] <&Hebizuka> [Valuable] Metal - Scandium bar, 500g ingot - Value 900-3500 P$ (1d2601+899) - [Quantity: 4] [02:14] <&Hebizuka> [Valuable] Metal - Palladium bar, 500g ingot - Value 1500-6500 P$ (1d5001+1499) - [Quantity: 6] [02:14] <&Hebizuka> [Valuable] Metal - Platinum bar, 500g ingot - Value 3000-12000 P$ (1d9001+2999) - [Quantity: 3] [02:14] <&Hebizuka> *Total weight of the treasure: 34 units* [02:16] <~SU_Tempest> [Prisca] Whoa... J-just... Whoa. How should we split this?... [02:16] * Tasia takes a platinum bar, two gold bars, and three silver ones. "This seems something like a fifth, I guess." [02:17] <Tasia> "Well, wait.." [02:18] <Tasia> "Let's say... three of us get a platinum bar, the other two get two scandium ones. Right?" [02:19] <~SU_Tempest> [Prisca] Palladium is worth more than scandium, though. [02:19] <Tasia> "And for palladium - each of us takes one... [02:21] <Tasia> "Well, you know more about it than I do. How about you divide them into piles and we draw lots for who gets to pick a pile first?" [02:21] <~SU_Tempest> [Marcus] How about this: We give 1 plat bar to Tasia and her two buds. They get the platinum, after all, it's Tasia and her folks that did the biggest job. [02:21] <Tasia> "That sounds fair to me." [02:21] <Tasia> "Hmmm." [02:22] <Tasia> "Well, if you insist." [02:23] <~SU_Tempest> [Marcus] Okay. Next, the palladium. There's six. Enough for each one of us. But that sixth one goes to Tasia. [02:23] <Tasia> "You don't have to give me more than everyone else, you know." [02:24] <~SU_Tempest> [Marcus] Oh but I insist. You deserve it. [02:24] <Tasia> "I mean... you two are the ones that did all of the investigation. Anyone can shoot a gun." [02:25] <~SU_Tempest> [Marcus] Yeah, but that gal who can shoot a gun? She is what saved our lives, and the whole operation. I say it's normal you get the lion's share, plus you have two other people to keep happy, don't you? [02:25] * Tasia coughs. "Granted you may have had to split it all ten ways instead if you used someone else for backup..." [02:25] <~SU_Tempest> [Telma] Personally, I'm already pretty happy to have robbed a bank... [02:26] <Tasia> "In any case, I'd feel better if it was split as evenly as possible." [02:26] <~SU_Tempest> [Marcus] I maintain that you three deserve the platinum, and you get 2 bars of palladium. Now, how do you suggest we split 4 bars of scandium between six people? [02:27] <~SU_Tempest> [Marcus] Oh, I know. We take two and they split the other two amongst themselves. [02:28] <~SU_Tempest> [Marcus] Next, the gold bars... well that's easy too. Tasia and her friends get five, we take the remaining three. [02:28] <Tasia> "Five, but make it up with four shares of two gold bars, which might be worth more, so... split the silver more generously along the scandium line." [02:29] <Tasia> "Hm. Okay." [02:30] <~SU_Tempest> [Marcus] Lastly, the silver. There's 13, so... that means everyone gets two, which leaves 3 extra. You guys take 3 each, and we take the other four. [02:31] <&Hebizuka> =Your proposed share (to be split with allies)= [02:31] <&Hebizuka> > 3 platinum bars [02:31] <&Hebizuka> > 4 palladium bars [02:31] <&Hebizuka> > 2 scandium bars [02:31] <&Hebizuka> > 5 gold bars [02:31] <&Hebizuka> > 9 silver bars [02:32] <Tasia> "Okay, I'll accept this." [02:32] <Tasia> "No sense in debating all day, I guess." [02:32] <~SU_Tempest> [Telma] You know, I'm totally fine with getting less. Lauren needs more cash than I do. [02:32] <~SU_Tempest> *The split is done as agreed, and Prisca helps Marcus distributing your team's share of the treasure.* [02:34] * Tasia takes for herself 1 platinum, 2 scandium, 2 gold, 1 silver. Her friends can split the rest how they choose. [02:39] <~SU_Tempest> *Telma insists you take two Palladium bars.* [02:39] <Tasia> "Okay, but I'm leaving the silver then." [02:39] <~SU_Tempest> [Telma] Fine! [02:40] * Tasia chuckles. [02:41] <Tasia> "Okay, let's pack up and get going, I guess." [02:41] <&Hebizuka> *That leaves 9 silver, 3 gold, 2 palladium and 2 scandium to split. Your allies are sorting themselves out...* [02:41] <Tasia> "There's no sense in staying here longer than necessary if there could be other hostile creatures wandering around." [02:41] <Tasia> "I wonder what they eat down here?" [02:44] <&Hebizuka> *Telma got 3 silver bars, 1 gold bar, 1 palladium bar, 1 platinum bar.* [02:44] <&Hebizuka> *Lauren got 6 silver bars, 2 gold bars, 1 palladium bar, 1 platinum bar.* [02:44] <~SU_Tempest> *An unknown voice is heard.* [02:44] <&Hebizuka> [Pack/Main] 95.44/115 [02:44] * Tasia reaches for a weapon... better not be more mobsters. [02:45] <&Hebizuka> *A figure comes out of the shadows and enters the treasure room. He is dressed like a GLB member, but you haven't seen him before.* [02:46] <~SU_Tempest> [GLB] Greetings, my fellow brothers and sisters. Firstly, I would like to congratulate you and to thank you for your tremendous work, and for finding this treasure, which you rightly deserve. [02:47] <~SU_Tempest> [GLB] I am Brother Taisan, the 'leader' of the Grand Larceny Brotherhood. I dislike the title of "boss" or "leader", I see myself as no more than a big brother, or a father figure of sorts, to my community and my fellow Brotherhood. [02:47] * Tasia ponders. Is it a double-cross? [02:47] <Tasia> "A pleasure to meet you!" [02:48] <~SU_Tempest> [Taisan] Allow me to explain my presence here. By opening the mortuary chamber, and becoming the person the King has given his post-mortem trust to, you, Tasia, have become the Chosen One that the King himself had foreseen. [02:49] <~SU_Tempest> [Taisan] The greater evils he mentions are none other than the deadly Four Horsemen of the Apocalpse. They are the ones responsible for decimating the world as the King saw it, and for causing the world to "reset", so that a new era could usher. [02:50] <Tasia> "I... I wish I could say that I understand, but I don't at all." [02:50] <~SU_Tempest> [Taisan] The reason they have done so is to bury Maratuxa's efforts. He had uncanny clairvoyance, and the Horsemen saw in him a threat, as he could, according to them, disturb the balance of the world, and break the status quo they defend. And today, the Chosen One that the King had foreseen, has been revealed. [02:51] <~SU_Tempest> [Taisan] Unfortunately, this also means that the day the Horsemen will return is coming soon. [02:51] <Tasia> "And I take it that that's a bad thing, right?" [02:52] <~SU_Tempest> [Taisan] The Four Horsemen are forces of nature, obsessed with maintaining equilibrium. The very fact that you are an otherworlder of great might is certainly enough concern for them... You are a troublemaker, Tasia, and I believe that they've been watching you and that they will soon manifest themselves to you somehow. [02:53] <Tasia> "Hmmm.... well, they certainly sound like more trouble than I am. I won't deny that label for myself, though." [02:53] <Tasia> "If it's what needs to be done, then I'll fight them." [02:54] <~SU_Tempest> [Taisan] The reason I am aware of all of this, is because the Grand Larceny Brotherhood was founded several hundreds of years ago, by people with the same motives and values we defend. My lineage as the 'leader' figure descends directly from the King's Maratuxa, and whoever had survived the "Unavoidable Doom", mentioned in the scriptures, which is the name the King gave to the passage [02:54] <~SU_Tempest> to another era. [02:54] <Tasia> "What was this Unavoidable Doom?" [02:57] <~SU_Tempest> [Taisan] The passage to another era itself isn't well-documented. There are many works and many mentions of varying eras, often recognizable by the technological level and the changes in society at each passing era, but no-one is certain how a new era is "made". [02:57] <Tasia> "Interesting." [02:58] <~SU_Tempest> [Taisan] The King lived in what is documented as "Beta Era 4". Almost every human from that era had been wiped out of existence. [02:59] <~SU_Tempest> [Taisan] It's only afterwards that changing eras were allowed to occur by natural transition instead of a "hard reset" caused by the Horsemen. No-one is certain why. The only notable change between 4 and 5 is that during 5, firearm technology had been invented in the Mazes. [03:00] <~SU_Tempest> [Taisan] It is also the first era in which youkai were being introduced. The oldest surviving youkai today are well over 2000 years old, and descend from that era. [03:01] <Tasia> "Huh! I'd suspected that they were older than the humans, somehow." [03:01] <~SU_Tempest> [Taisan] If the Four Horsemen return, 2300 years after their last coming, and their intention is to "hard reset" the world, this could have catastrophic consequences. I certainly hope nothing will occur and that those are just that, legends. [03:02] <Tasia> "Still. Like I said, if it comes down to it, I'll fight them... I can promise that much." [03:02] <~SU_Tempest> [Taisan] In any case... I have taken the personal liberty to set up and install a teleporting pad, connected directly to this room, which I would like to keep open. As the direct descendant to one of the King's servants, I believe that it is the right thing to open this place to the Brotherhood, so that we may guard this place the same way we guard Prisca's library. [03:03] <~SU_Tempest> [Taisan] You may use this telepad to return to the library and in the Mazes, so that you may go and enjoy your newfound treasures. [03:03] <Tasia> "Thanks. Maybe this could be made into a museum, or something like that. Once all of the fried chicken is cleaned up, anyway..." [03:04] <~SU_Tempest> *Everyone chuckles at the fried chicken comment.* [03:04] <~SU_Tempest> *Prisca agrees at the museum bit, though.* [03:04] <~SU_Tempest> [Prisca] This place is so fascinating! I will be coming back to study the place and take pictures, maybe write a book! [03:05] <~SU_Tempest> [Marcus] Well... I've finally hit it big with this operation. I think I'm going to retire as an archaeologist, and live as Prisca's little library assistant. No more adventures for me! [03:06] <Tasia> "And they lived happily ever after!" [03:06] <~SU_Tempest> *You may use the telepad to return to the library and move on to the next doors.* [03:06] * Tasia steps onto the telepad! [03:06] <&Hebizuka> *You return inside Prisca's library.
