From Mazeworld

[15:32] <&Hebizuka> *Welcome back to the Mazes, Tasia. You have visited 341 rooms, the next special room is at the 348th. You are currently healthy. You're feeling satiated, and mildly turned on. Your allies Telma and Lauren seem to be both OK as well. !mrooms3 to continue.* [15:33] <Tasia> !mrooms3 [15:33] <&Hebizuka> [ Tasia ] Left door: 1844 - Front door: 4214 - Right door: 4683 - Roomstyle: 184 [15:33] * Tasia stretches, feeling ready for something interesting to happen... Front door! [15:35] <&Hebizuka> *A regular, featureless room. The room is depressingly empty. All you spot here is some food on the ground.* [15:35] * Tasia looks at the food, hoping for more pickles or something else that's tasty. [15:35] <&Hebizuka> [Food] Vegetable - Leek. 54kcal [15:36] * Tasia hands it off to Lauren or Telma if they want it. [15:36] <~SU_Tempest> [Lauren] Oh yeah yeah, Imma take that. Hey, don't you think the bottom end kinda looks like a ballsack? [15:36] <~SU_Tempest> [Telma] Ew. Stay classy. [15:37] * Tasia eyerolls. [15:37] <Tasia> !mrooms3 [15:37] <&Hebizuka> [ Tasia ] Left door: 5220 - Front door: 230 - Right door: 4119 - Roomstyle: 546 [15:37] <Tasia> Front door again, I suppose. [15:43] <&Hebizuka> *Another regular, featureless room. There is a lone Death Faction Soldier here, in full desert camouflage garb plus armor. The Soldier carries a submachine gun. There is also a shiny in the corner.* [15:43] * Tasia eyes the soldier warily.. does he look hostile? [15:45] <&Hebizuka> *The soldier has noticed the shiny, and seems very, VERY interested in it.* [15:45] <~SU_Tempest> [DFSoldier] Holy shit? HOLY SHIT! Is that what I think it is?! [15:45] * Tasia glances at the shiny. [15:46] <&Hebizuka> [Valuable] Metal - Gold bar, 500g ingot - Value 1000-4000 P$ (1d3001+999) [15:47] <Tasia> "Oooh, nice. Gee, there's a lot more of us than of you, though... I'll make you a deal. If you let us have this, I'll give you something to make it a fair split." [15:50] <~SU_Tempest> [DFSoldier] What the fuck? I SAW THIS FIRST. How about I give you something to SPLIT YOU IN HALF? [15:50] <&Hebizuka> *The soldier's facial expression turned to a murderous scowl. He wants to fight, there's no denying it.* [15:51] <Tasia> "Are you going to seriously refuse a fifty-fifty split?" Tasia sighs. "Fine then, I won't feel too guilty about this..." [15:51] <Tasia> @cover [15:51] <MazeBot> A wooden barrel. (Health: 16, LDV modifier: -1. AC Eqv: Hardskin. Pass-through threshold: 6+ dmg. Pain modifier: x1) [15:52] <&Hebizuka> *You may roll to take cover now. Thanks to bionics, your cover-taking FT is fixed to 4.* [15:52] <Tasia> @roll 2d6 [15:52] <MazeBot> Tasia: 5 [15:53] <&Hebizuka> *Your allies also attempt taking cover - which means they pretty much all line up behind the wooden barrel, almost humorously.* [15:53] <&Hebizuka> *The Soldier also has the good sense of looking for cover...* [15:53] <&Hebizuka> @cover [15:53] <MazeBot> A static tactical shield, "Defender" model. (Health: 60, LDV modifier: -3. AC Eqv: Kevlar-4. Pass-through threshold: 12+ dmg. Pain modifier: x0.50) [15:54] <&Hebizuka> [Cover-taking rolls] Everyone passed. [15:56] <&Hebizuka> [Cover-taking rolls] (Scores) Tasia: 4, Telma: 8, Lauren: 8, DFSoldier: 10. Order this turn will be DFSoldier, Telma, Lauren, You. [15:56] <&Hebizuka> *Turn 1. What will you do?* [15:56] * Tasia will take 5 shots at him in semi-auto with Lightning - not so much expecting to break the cover, but it might keep his head down. [15:58] <&Hebizuka> *Telma hurriedly draws her Desert Eagle, and attempts dumping four shots at the Soldier's cover.* [15:58] <&Hebizuka> *Lauren unpins and chucks a MkIIIA2 grenade at the Soldier.* [16:00] <&Hebizuka> *The Soldier lifts his submachine gun and fires a 10-round burst at you.* [16:00] <&Hebizuka> *As states before, order this turn: DFSoldier, Telma, Lauren, You.* [16:00] <&Hebizuka> *DF Soldier's turn...* [16:00] <&Hebizuka> @roll 10#2d6 [16:00] <MazeBot> Hebizuka: 8;5;7;10;6;6;7;7;6;12 [16:01] <&Hebizuka> *Shots 1-6: Hit, Miss, Hit, Hit, Miss, Miss* [16:01] <&Hebizuka> *Shots 7-10: Miss, Miss, Miss, Critical hit* [16:03] <&Hebizuka> *The wooden barrel falls apart from the gunfire, and one bullet even seems to have overpenetrated enough to strike you; though it has tumbled badly enough to land on your left foot.* [16:03] <&Hebizuka> *Your piece of cover has been destroyed.* [16:06] <&Hebizuka> *The lone bullet that hit you did hurt a fair bit. It did enough to damage your left foot, as well as blow open a wound.* [16:06] <Tasia> "Ah, damn you!" [16:07] <&Hebizuka> *Telma's turn...* [16:07] <&Hebizuka> @roll 4#2d6 [16:07] <MazeBot> Hebizuka: 5;5;9;5 [16:07] <&Hebizuka> *Shots 1-4: Miss, Miss, Hit, Miss.* [16:07] <&Hebizuka> *Telma's Desert Eagle is empty!* [16:08] <&Hebizuka> *The .50 round that did hit lands on the soldier's shield, causing a multitude of cracks, though you have the feeling that it's been designed to withstand dozens more shots like these...* [16:12] <&Hebizuka> *Lauren's turn...* [16:12] <&Hebizuka> @roll 2d6 [16:12] <MazeBot> Hebizuka: 6 [16:12] <~SU_Tempest> [Lauren] Dicks! I botched that throw. [16:12] <&Hebizuka> *Distant-hit.* [16:13] <&Hebizuka> *The enemy's cover seems unaffected by the blast.* [16:15] <&Hebizuka> *The soldier seems to have been hurt by the explosion. A wound appeared on his left leg.* [16:15] <&Hebizuka> *Your turn. You may roll now.* [16:15] <Tasia> @roll 5#2d6 [16:15] <MazeBot> Tasia: 6;9;8;8;4 [16:17] <&Hebizuka> *Shots 1-5: Hit, Hit, Hit, Hit, Miss* [16:17] <&Hebizuka> *Total: 4/5 hits. All four hits smack into the shield.* [16:22] <&Hebizuka> *The armor-piercing rounds cause much more damage than Telma's .50 FMJs... One of them even overpenetrated straight through, and had enough energy to go on and hit the Soldier!* [16:23] <&Hebizuka> *The shield is still standing, but it shows that it's severely damaged. There's a multitude of cracks and broken ballistic glass on the floor.* [16:23] <&Hebizuka> *The Soldier was hit in the left arm, which is naked.* [16:24] <&Hebizuka> *It caused minimal damage, but at least caused another wound to appear.* [16:24] <&Hebizuka> *End of Turn 1.* [16:25] <&Hebizuka> *You're bleeding, and so is the Soldier.* [16:25] <&Hebizuka> *Turn 2. Next move?* [16:26] * Tasia was considering charging with her pistol, but the wound in her foot and the damage that his cover has already taken leads her to decide to upen up on him with her rifle from where she is. 15 rounds full-auto from the ARX. [16:28] <&Hebizuka> *Telma decides to reload, dropping her empty magazine on the floor and slapping a fresh, full one into her Desert Eagle.* [16:28] <&Hebizuka> *Telma has reloaded her Desert Eagle. She won't act for the rest of the turn.* [16:29] <&Hebizuka> *Lauren switches to her Glock 18C, and with the littlest care in the world, squeezes that trigger until it goes empty.* [16:29] <&Hebizuka> *The Soldier aims at Telma and fires a 5-round burst in return.* [16:30] <&Hebizuka> *Order this turn: Lauren, Soldier, You.* [16:31] <&Hebizuka> *Lauren's turn...* [16:31] <&Hebizuka> *Lauren's magdumping makes her fire 25 rounds. Keep in mind that G18C is in poor condition.* [16:32] <&Hebizuka> @roll 20#2d6 [16:32] <MazeBot> Hebizuka: 6;5;4;7;8;5;11;7;8;10;6;3;3;7;6;4;10;7;10;5 [16:32] <&Hebizuka> @roll 5#2d6 [16:32] <MazeBot> Hebizuka: 10;9;7;11;9 [16:32] <&Hebizuka> *Low condition malus: FT+2* [16:34] <&Hebizuka> *Shots 1-15: 2 hits, 13 misses* [16:34] <&Hebizuka> *Shots 16-25: 4 hits, 6 misses* [16:34] <&Hebizuka> *Six rounds out of the hail of 25 reach their target and strike the cover. Is it enough to destroy it? Uncertain.* [16:37] <&Hebizuka> *The cover takes even more damage and is about to be rendered useless, but it seems that the Soldier is getting off on the adrenaline and is getting even angrier instead of being suppressed.* [16:37] <&Hebizuka> *Soldier's turn...* [16:37] <~SU_Tempest> [Lauren] Uh oh. [16:38] <~SU_Tempest> [DFSoldier] YOU ARE ALL GOING TO DIE! [16:38] <Tasia> "I respectfully disagree!" [16:39] <&Hebizuka> *He performs some sort of mangled battle cry in response.* [16:39] <&Hebizuka> *He then aims at Telma, and fires 5 rounds...* [16:39] <&Hebizuka> @roll 5#2d6 [16:39] <MazeBot> Hebizuka: 10;3;4;7;10 [16:40] <&Hebizuka> @bodyaim [16:40] <MazeBot> [UPPER BODY] Upper body (Stomach, guts, lower back) [16:40] <&Hebizuka> *Shots 1-5: Hit, Miss, Miss, Hit, Hit.* [16:41] <&Hebizuka> *Telma takes three rounds to the stomach, which her vest and her plate absorb. The SRA Riot Vest now looks damaged.* [16:42] <&Hebizuka> *She suffers no injuries, and only minimal amounts of Pain.* [16:42] <~SU_Tempest> [Telma] Ouch, ouch, ow, for fuck's sake, ow! [16:42] <&Hebizuka> *Your turn. You may roll now.* [16:42] <Tasia> @roll 15#2d6 [16:42] <MazeBot> Tasia: 6;8;4;7;8;9;4;3;10;7;4;2;8;3;5 [16:43] <Tasia> "You psychotic bastard! Take this!" [16:43] <&Hebizuka> *Bonuses: Muzzle brake, Bipod. Recoil is reduced to 1.* [16:43] <&Hebizuka> *Malfunction check: Passed. No malfunction this turn.* [16:44] <&Hebizuka> *Shots 1-15: Hit, Hit, Miss, Hit, Hit, Hit, Miss, Miss, Hit, Hit, Miss, Miss, Hit, Miss, Miss.* [16:44] <&Hebizuka> *Total: 8/15 hits.* [16:45] <&Hebizuka> *The first round breaks the last of the protective ballistic glass, meaning the seven that follow behind aren't hindered by cover anymore.* [16:45] <&Hebizuka> *You have destroyed the enemy's cover.* [16:45] <&Hebizuka> @bodyaim [16:45] <MazeBot> [LIMB] Left arm [16:46] <&Hebizuka> *The 7 rounds strike the Soldier all in the left arm... As stated before, this is an unprotected body part.* [16:48] <&Hebizuka> *A lot of blood is punched out of his arm, which seems to no longer respond to its owner's body, and "falls" off. You have disabled the Soldier's left arm.* [16:48] <&Hebizuka> *The Soldier lost consciousness and crumbles on the floor. He no longer moves.* [16:48] <&Hebizuka> *End of fight - no more capable opponents.* [16:49] <Tasia> "Holy hell." [16:49] <&Hebizuka> *Length: 2 turns.* [16:49] * Tasia gets out an Individual Bandage, pulls her boot off, and dresses the wound. [16:49] <&Hebizuka> *Individual Bandages left: 5 in the backpack.* [16:50] <&Hebizuka> *You've cured the only wound on your left foot. You're no longer bleeding!* [16:50] <Tasia> "Gah. That wasn't exactly pleasant. I suppose... we should loot the body, now." [16:50] <~SU_Tempest> *Telma slowly approaches the Soldier, who is profusely bleeding from the left arm.* [16:51] <~SU_Tempest> [Telma] He's still alive. He's barely breathing but he's still alive. He's going to bleed himself out, though. [16:51] <Tasia> "He's a damn psycho. I'm not going to do anything for him." [16:52] <Tasia> "Let the fucker bleed out. If we save him he might just try for revenge." [16:52] <~SU_Tempest> [Lauren] Is it loot time? Loot time! [16:52] * Tasia limps over. [16:53] <Tasia> ...and remembers halfway there to slip her shoe back on and lace it... [16:55] <&Hebizuka> *Short list: The Soldier is wearing the standard Death Faction uniform with Type-4 Kevlar vest, Light Steel plate, STSH-81 titanium helmet, MK64 Trooper tactical vest, Default Belt and Field Pack. His weapon is a Sterling L2A3 (Fair / Clean) [19/34 FMJ]. He was not carrying any other equipment, besides two extra magazines, both full.* [16:56] <Tasia> "Telma, you can take his vest since your is damaged... Lauren, I guess the SMG is yours since you have room for it... and hey, isn't that the ammo that you have a large can of already, too?"" [16:57] <~SU_Tempest> [Lauren] Sweet! Free 9mm! [16:58] <Tasia> She doesn't have a vest and belt yet either, does she? Might as well give those to her while we're at it. [16:59] <&Hebizuka> *Lauren equips the Sterling L2A3, but she starts by emptying the ammunition from its magazine, plus the Soldier's spares, acquiring 117 rounds of 9x19mm FMJ total.* [16:59] <Tasia> "Hmm, not going to load it? Okay..." [16:59] <~SU_Tempest> [Lauren] Nah, it's because I don't care for FMJ crap. I got +P here! [16:59] <Tasia> "Or.... Ohh. You're gonna use the hot stuff in it." [16:59] <Tasia> "Good call then." [17:00] <&Hebizuka> *The loopy mercenary then sits down and starts filling her Glock and Sterling mags with +P.* [17:02] <&Hebizuka> *In total, she takes 135 rounds of 9x19 +P, enough to fill a Glock 33-rd mag and three Sterling mags.* [17:02] <&Hebizuka> *The merc happily locks and loads both her SMG and her brrt-pistol. She looks ecstatic.* [17:03] * Tasia refills 21 rounds into Lightning's magazine, topping it off. [17:03] <&Hebizuka> *Use AP or FMJ?* [17:04] <Tasia> AP. I don't think I have anymore FMJ, at least not that I'm aware of. [17:04] <&Hebizuka> *I still see 223 rounds (amusingly) of 5.56 FMJ here.* [17:04] <Tasia> Ah., ok. [17:05] <&Hebizuka> *You have 109 rounds of 5.56 AP left, prior to reloading those 21. Now you have 88 left.* [17:05] <&Hebizuka> *ARX-160 "Lightning": [60+1/60, AP]* [17:13] <&Hebizuka> *Meanwhile, Telma reluctantly removes her SRA Riot Vest.* [17:14] <~SU_Tempest> [Telma] *Pout* Man, it's all shot up. I liked that thing. [17:14] <Tasia> "Hey, it did its job very well." [17:15] <&Hebizuka> *She takes out the plate and dumps it, removes the surprisingly intact Type-4 Kevlar Vest from the dead Soldier's body, and wears said vest along with the also-intact Light Steel plate inside. * [17:18] <~SU_Tempest> *Lauren glances at the almost-dead Soldier.* [17:18] <~SU_Tempest> [Lauren] Man, they look a lot weaker without a gun and a vest, don't they? [17:20] * Tasia nods. [17:20] * Tasia goes over to pick up the gold bar [17:20] <&Hebizuka> *She pokes the Soldier's disabled arm with the tip of her Glock.* [17:20] <~SU_Tempest> [Lauren] ...hehe. *poke, poke* [17:21] <&Hebizuka> *You took the gold bar.* [17:21] <&Hebizuka> [Pack/Main] 85.82/115 [17:21] <Tasia> "Are you expecting him to poke back?" [17:22] <~SU_Tempest> [Lauren] Huh? [17:22] <~SU_Tempest> [Lauren] No, I just find it funny he's not even reacting. [17:23] <~SU_Tempest> *The merc removes her backpack and searches for something inside of it.* [17:23] <Tasia> *Oh dear, she's nutty too* [17:23] <~SU_Tempest> *She pulls out the leek found earlier, and slowly shoves it into the Soldier's mouth, all with the grin of a maniacal child.* [17:24] <Tasia> "That's fucked up." [17:24] <~SU_Tempest> [Lauren] Heehee. I'm paid to fuck people up. [17:24] <~SU_Tempest> [Telma] Sometimes I wonder what I got myself into. [17:24] * Tasia sighs... and feels like she could use a cig, it's been a while. [17:25] <Tasia> "Likewise." [17:25] * Tasia gets out a cigarette and lights it up. [17:26] <&Hebizuka> *The cigarette helps return you to normal. It won't make you more accurate but it also helps you forget about your stomach turning from Lauren's crazy.* [17:27] <Tasia> "Just limit your shooting to people that need it, and I guess it's okay." [17:27] <Tasia> !mrooms3 [17:27] <&Hebizuka> [ Tasia ] Left door: 3238 - Front door: 5841 - Right door: 2631 - Roomstyle: 92 [17:27] * Tasia heads for the left door, now that we're all squared away. [17:27] <~SU_Tempest> [Lauren] Okay, okay. Sorry, I just like to have fun sometimes. [17:28] <~SU_Tempest> [Telma] Is that what you said before being put for sale at that hiring bureau? [17:28] <~SU_Tempest> [Lauren] *shrug* Maybe. [17:29] <&Hebizuka> *Moving forwards.* [17:32] <&Hebizuka> *You and your team climb up a flight of stairs, before reaching a shower room. There is nobody here. All you spot is a strange item in one of the clothing lockers.* [17:34] * Tasia checks on the item. [17:35] <&Hebizuka> [Item] An odd recoil spring. A custom recoil spring that doesn't seem to properly fit in any standard firearm. [17:35] * Tasia shrugs and leaves it. [17:35] <Tasia> !mrooms3 [17:35] <&Hebizuka> [ Tasia ] Left door: 1223 - Front door: 1126 - Right door: 5138 - Roomstyle: 315 [17:35] <Tasia> Left again. [17:38] <&Hebizuka> *A shooting range. There are a few lanes, and benches and tables in the back. Someone has forgotten a weapon behind, and it's sitting there on one of the tables... There's no-one else here, though.* [17:38] <Tasia> "Oooh, what's this?" Tasia examines the weapon. [17:39] <&Hebizuka> [Weapon] Class 1 - Remington Model 700 XCR II sniper rifle | .300 Winchester Magnum - Bolt-action | M.Brake, Bipod | Internal magazine, 3 rounds, no +1 | Weight: 22 - [3/3, 3x FMJ] - Cond: Fair / Clns: Clean [17:40] <&Hebizuka> *All it's missing is an optic.* [17:40] * Tasia hands the ammo to Telma and stuffs it into her pack. [17:40] <&Hebizuka> *Telma grabs the three rounds, and raises an eyebrow.* [17:41] <~SU_Tempest> [Telma] 3 rounds? That's all that big rifle can hold? [17:41] <Tasia> "Apparently, but it looks valuable." [17:42] <~SU_Tempest> [Telma] Damn. Well, okay. I can't say no to more ammo! [17:42] <&Hebizuka> [Pack/Main] 107.72/115 [17:43] <Tasia> !mrooms3 [17:43] <&Hebizuka> [ Tasia ] Left door: 2947 - Front door: 1825 - Right door: 6298 - Roomstyle: 389 [17:43] * Tasia heads right... [17:46] <&Hebizuka> *A messy bar. There must've been a violent bar fight in the recent past given the broken furniture, cracks on the counter, shattered glass on the floor, and drink stains on the wall. The bartender is here as usal, the @radio is dispensing its sounds, there are no patrons to be seen, and you spot an item on a table...* [17:47] <Tasia> "Oh wow, what happened here?" [17:47] * Tasia glances at the item. [17:49] <~SU_Tempest> [Barkeep] Two oni got violent. I preferred staying out of it. They decided to settle it out of the room, though... [17:49] <&Hebizuka> [Weapon accessory] Rail adapter: A75 - Compatible with: CZ 75 AUTO, CZ 75B. Adds 1 light mount to the equipped weapon (X300U, APL and SCV4). [17:50] * Tasia takes the rail adapter in case it's useful. [17:51] <&Hebizuka> [Pack/Main] 108.72/115 [17:52] <Tasia> "Hm. Well... do you have any coffee or something resembling it?" [17:54] <~SU_Tempest> [Barkeep] Sure do. Black or cappucino? [17:54] <Tasia> "Black sounds good." [17:54] <~SU_Tempest> [Barkeep] Will your friends have anything? [17:55] <Tasia> "I don't know - will they?" [17:55] <~SU_Tempest> [Telma] Black coffee for me too. [17:55] <~SU_Tempest> [Lauren] Rusty AK for me! I feel like having a really nice drink. [18:01] <~SU_Tempest> *The bartender serves you and your maid ally the ordered coffees, then gets to preparing the mercenary's cocktail.* [18:01] <~SU_Tempest> *You see him put vodka and coffee liqueur together, served on the rocks in a suitable glass. Lauren looks delighted.* [18:02] * Tasia sips slowly and happily. [18:13] <~SU_Tempest> *The barkeep finishes the cocktail and hands it to Lauren. Telma sips along with you.* [18:14] <~SU_Tempest> [Barkeep] So, what brings such a well-armed band of girls? [18:17] <Tasia> "Just trying to stay safe... of course, if there's any monsters or people crazier than us running around cauing trouble, we can take care of them." [18:19] <~SU_Tempest> [Telma] What she said. [18:20] <~SU_Tempest> *Lauren downs her cocktail really fast.* [18:21] <~SU_Tempest> *Lauren reaches for a silver bar in her backpack, which she plonks on the counter.* [18:21] <~SU_Tempest> *Thinking it was money.* [18:20] <~SU_Tempest> [Lauren] *hips* Keep the change. [18:22] <~SU_Tempest> [Barkeep] Ummm... Let me appraise that. And no, you will get your change back. [18:23] <&Hebizuka> *The barkeep takes the ingot, and gives 414 P$ back to the mercenary, paying for everyone's drinks in the process.* [18:23] <Tasia> "Thanks, Lauren." [18:23] <~SU_Tempest> [Lauren] Yer welcome. [18:24] * Tasia raises her just-emptied coffee mug in salute. [18:25] <Tasia> !mrooms3 [18:25] <&Hebizuka> [ Tasia ] Left door: 6796 - Front door: 1087 - Right door: 4075 - Roomstyle: 535 [18:25] <Tasia> "Mmm, I feel refreshed now." [18:25] <&Hebizuka> *The coffee helps you feeling stronger.* [18:26] * Tasia wanders toward the left door, going through if her allies are ready. [18:33] <&Hebizuka> *Your allies finish their drink, and follow you onward.* [18:49] <&Hebizuka> *A regular, featureless room. There are no creatures in this room, just a roll of blue paper abandoned in the corner and covered in dust. You notice there is only one door ahead (!mrooms1).* [18:51] * Tasia goes over to collect what is assumedly a blueprint. [18:55] <&Hebizuka> [Crafting] (Blueprint) "Level 1, DynLeg, Dyneema leg pads + Ceramic plated jockstrap" [18:55] * Tasia takes this. [18:56] <&Hebizuka> [Pack/Main] 109.72/115 [18:57] <Tasia> !mrooms1 [18:57] <&Hebizuka> [ Tasia ] Unique door: 1896 - Roomstyle: 143 [18:57] <Tasia> Forward to the next room... [18:59] <&Hebizuka> *You may proceed towards the next mission, or continue roaming the random Mazes.* [18:59] <Tasia> Eh, next mission! [19:00] <&Hebizuka> [Mission 13: Doppelgänger...] [19:01] <&Hebizuka> *You set foot in a large arena-like room... the ground is sandy, and there seems to be no ceiling.* [19:01] <&Hebizuka> *You don't see any doors either. In fact, the room seems endless.* [19:04] <&Hebizuka> *A strange, otherworldly voice, booms out of nowhere, and seems to be everywhere at once!* [19:05] <~SU_Tempest> [???] Chosen One, there is no greater enemy than yourself! Forces of nature cannot be defeated by those who cannot defeat themselves! [19:06] <&Hebizuka> *You see a flash of light occur in the distance - though you're unsure just how far it is. Then you can distinguish the silhouette of something very tall and square.* [19:07] <~SU_Tempest> [Lauren] ...Whoever that is, they have a REALLY good sound system. [19:07] <~SU_Tempest> [Telma] That ain't the moment to joke, Lauren. [19:09] <Tasia> "That's an interestig welcome." [19:10] <&Hebizuka> *Investigate the monolith?* [19:11] * Tasia approaches very warily. [19:13] <&Hebizuka> *It's a glass cage. There is a strange, humanoid... thing... inside. You're not sure if it's artificial or living.* [19:14] <~SU_Tempest> [Lauren] What the heck is that? [19:14] <Tasia> "A genie in abottle?" [19:16] <&Hebizuka> *The humanoid thing starts morphing in shape... It seems to start growing human features; a face, a more human bodily shape, hair... until it becomes perfectly human-like in appearance. It morphs further, into a feminine shape. Grayish-blue eyes, caucasian complexion, collar-length deep brown hair...* [19:17] <&Hebizuka> *...The more this thing goes on, the more it starts looking like a perfect clone of you.* [19:17] <Tasia> "What the..." [19:18] <&Hebizuka> *The thing opens its eyes, and immediately wakes up from an apparent slumber to crash into the glass wall, apparently very angry to see you.* [19:18] <Tasia> "Defeat myself, you say? Why not team up instead? I think we'd get along." [19:18] <~SU_Tempest> [???] You... [19:18] <~SU_Tempest> [???] Why, why are you there... You're me! [19:19] <&Hebizuka> *The naked clone-you is frothing at the mouth. It seems it... or rather, she is enraged at you.* [19:19] <Tasia> "No, I'm me. You're a bottle person that looks like me, but I was here first so I'm clearly the original." [19:19] <~SU_Tempest> [???] I'll kill you, I'll kill you, I'll kill you! You're the copy! I'll kill you!! [19:20] <~SU_Tempest> *Telma and Lauren both back away in fear.* [19:20] * Tasia backs away as well... [19:20] <Tasia> "See, if you were really me, you wouldn't be feeling so... suicidal, I guess?" [19:20] <&Hebizuka> *The glass cage that contains the clone-you seems to go downwards, as if absorbed into the ground. Soon it's out of sight, but you continue hearing the muffled thumps of clone-you punching on the glass and screaming at you.* [19:21] <&Hebizuka> *After a while, they stop. Telma feels serious chills down her spine.* [19:21] <~SU_Tempest> [Telma] Tasia, I have a really bad feeling about this... [19:21] <Tasia> "That was seriously weird." [19:29] <&Hebizuka> *CRASH* [19:29] <&Hebizuka> *The sound of glass being shattered is heard. Something jumps out of the sand where the glass cage was located. Copy-you is no longer naked... She's wearing the exact replica of your clothing, armor, and weapons!* [19:30] <~SU_Tempest> [Copy-Tasia] I'LL KILL YOU! [19:31] <Tasia> "The last person to say that didn't have much success. Pressing your luck much?" [19:31] <~SU_Tempest> *Lauren and Telma each raise their primaries, AA-12 and WA2000 respectively, but the copy-you gestures at them.* [19:31] <~SU_Tempest> [Copy-Tasia] STAY OUT OF THIS. It's between me and the faker! [19:32] <~SU_Tempest> [Copy-Tasia] As for you... Come, let me administer the death you need. [19:32] <Tasia> "Another point against your argument: when have I ever insisted on fair play?" [19:33] <~SU_Tempest> [Copy-Tasia] Sure... Don't make it any easier for me. It will make no difference. [19:33] <&Hebizuka> *Copy-you wants to fight.* [19:33] <Tasia> "Okay, girls. Feel free to open up on her if you'd like." [19:34] <&Hebizuka> *Cover appears on both your side and the copy's.* [19:34] <Tasia> @cover [19:34] <MazeBot> A metallic file case full of papers. (Health: 35, LDV modifier: -2. AC Eqv: Kevlar-2. Pass-through threshold: 8+ dmg. Pain modifier: x0.75) [19:34] <&Hebizuka> *Copy-you's cover...* [19:34] <&Hebizuka> @cover [19:34] <MazeBot> A plastic crate full of garbage (Health: 26, LDV modifier: -2. AC Eqv: Kevlar-2. Pass-through threshold: 8+ dmg. Pain modifier: x0.75) [19:34] * Tasia takes advantage of this and moves behind the filing cabinet... [19:34] <&Hebizuka> *You may roll to take cover. Your cover FT is 4 thanks to augmentations.* [19:34] <Tasia> @roll 2d6 [19:34] <MazeBot> Tasia: 5 [19:35] <Tasia> "Awww man. It's gonna be a shame to mess up that pretty face of yours." [19:36] <&Hebizuka> [Cover] (Roll results) You: Pass (5, FT 4) - Telma: Pass (8) - Lauren: Fail (5) - Copy-you: Fail (4) [19:36] <&Hebizuka> *Everyone gets behind their respective pieces of cover, but neither Lauren nor the copy-you can act this turn.* [19:36] <&Hebizuka> *Turn 1: What will you do?* [19:37] * Tasia props her bipod atop the filing cabinet and opens up with a 20-round blast from Lightning! [19:39] <&Hebizuka> *Telma imitates you but with her WA2000. She decides firepower is more important than accuracy, and dumps three shots at the duplicate.* [19:39] <&Hebizuka> *Order this turn: You, Telma. You may roll first.* [19:40] <Tasia> @roll 20#2d6 [19:40] <MazeBot> Tasia: 3;11;4;5;8;6;2;7;4;8;10;9;4;8;4;3;7;2;10;4 [19:41] <&Hebizuka> *Malfunction checks: 2. Pass, Pass* [19:41] <&Hebizuka> *No malfunctions this turn* [19:41] <&Hebizuka> *Bonuses: Muzzle brake, Bipod for Recoil -2.* [19:43] <&Hebizuka> *Shots 1-16: 8 hits, 8 misses* [19:43] <&Hebizuka> *Shots 17-20: Hit, Miss, Hit, Miss* [19:43] <&Hebizuka> *Total 10/20* [19:47] <&Hebizuka> *The first 4 rounds hit the plastic crate, blowing it open on both sides and spilling the garbage on the sandy floor, making it useless. 2 of the rounds overpenetrated and struck the Copy-you - one round in the upper body, a second round in the lower body.* [19:47] <&Hebizuka> *The six rounds that follow hit the Copy-you directly, all 6 across the left arm.* [19:55] <&Hebizuka> *All 8 hits seem to have caused injuries to the copy-you, as they all produced bleeding holes.* [19:56] <&Hebizuka> *The copy-you seems to be down. It feels like you killed it.* [19:56] <&Hebizuka> *End of Turn 1.* [19:57] <&Hebizuka> *After a few seconds of long silence, the copy-you slowly regains consciousness and stands up. The first thing you notice is glowing red eyes, and a skin complexion that is closer from warm orange than your own caucasian white.* [19:58] <Tasia> "That - doesn't bode well." [19:58] <~SU_Tempest> [Lauren] FOR FUCK'S SAKE GUYS, IS THIS SHIT A ROBOT? [19:58] <~SU_Tempest> [Telma] I-I think Lauren is on to something... [19:58] <~SU_Tempest> [Copy-you?] ...kill you! [19:59] <&Hebizuka> *Turn 2. The fight resumes; it seems that the copy android of you - if it's an android at all - isn't down yet.* [20:00] <Tasia> "I hope that this doesn't imply that *I'm* a robot too. I mean, I wouln't be all that broken up about it I suppose, it'd just be a bit disconcerting to have not known." [20:00] <~SU_Tempest> [Lauren] Less debating, more shooting! That thing is trying to KILL us! [20:01] <&Hebizuka> *What is your next move?* [20:01] * Tasia switches to Whisper, and fires 10 shots semi aimed at Robo-Tasia's face. [20:02] <&Hebizuka> *Telma resumes aiming at copy-you, but adjusts her aim to a singular headshot, using her optic.* [20:04] <&Hebizuka> *Lauren looks like a mix of nervous and excited when switching to her G18 again. Switch on full-auto, she'll fire about 12 rounds.* [20:05] <&Hebizuka> *Copy-you reaches for a grenade - it looks like she picked the tear gas grenade, about to throw it at you!* [20:05] <&Hebizuka> *Order this turn: Copy-you, Lauren, You, Telma.* [20:06] <&Hebizuka> *Copy-you's turn..* [20:06] <&Hebizuka> @roll 2d6 [20:06] <MazeBot> Hebizuka: 11 [20:07] <&Hebizuka> *The M7A3 grenade detonates nearly at the very instant it touches your cover, dousing your entire side in tear gas!* [20:08] <&Hebizuka> *Your allies are crying, eyes tearing up and feeling very, very painful. However, your augmented eyes resist this without effort - you're unaffected by the tear gas effects.* [20:09] <~SU_Tempest> [Lauren] BLOODY FUCK [20:09] <&Hebizuka> *Lauren's turn...* [20:10] <&Hebizuka> *The fact her Glock 18 is in bad condition is already bad news for accuracy. But now that she's tearing up and can't see shit...* [20:10] <&Hebizuka> @roll 12#2d6 [20:10] <MazeBot> Hebizuka: 8;8;9;4;10;9;7;8;8;8;9;5 [20:13] <&Hebizuka> *Shots 1-12: All misses* [20:14] <&Hebizuka> *In less unfavorable circumstances, nearly all of those shots would be hits, but...* [20:14] <&Hebizuka> *Your turn. You may roll now.* [20:14] <Tasia> @roll 10#2d6 [20:14] <MazeBot> Tasia: 8;7;9;4;8;11;7;4;6;2 [20:15] <&Hebizuka> *Malf check: Pass. No malfunction this turn.* [20:18] <&Hebizuka> *Shots 1-10: Hit, Miss, Hit, Miss, Hit, Hit, Miss, Miss, Miss, Miss.* [20:18] <&Hebizuka> *Total: 4/10 hits* [20:23] <&Hebizuka> *The segmented rounds of 9x18mm Makarov seem to have been less effective than usual. Whatever happened, there was clearly a failure to cause enough damage, because the copy-you survived those four shots to the head.* [20:24] <&Hebizuka> *The Duplica's face skin is all torn up, revealing part of its actually metallic skull, and its glowing-red eyes.* [20:26] <&Hebizuka> *Telma's turn...* [20:26] <~SU_Tempest> [Telma] Just what the HELL does it take to kill her! I mean... it! [20:26] <&Hebizuka> @roll 2d6 [20:26] <MazeBot> Hebizuka: 8 [20:28] <&Hebizuka> *Hit!* [20:28] <&Hebizuka> *Copy-you takes a bullet right in the forehead, and you hear a distinctly metallic "KLANK" - the sound of a bullet striking tough metal.* [20:28] <&Hebizuka> *Now there's no doubting it, that thing IS a robot.* [20:29] <&Hebizuka> *Telma's eyes widen in fear.* [20:29] <&Hebizuka> *End of Turn 2.* [20:30] <&Hebizuka> *The copy-you is profusely bleeding from over a dozen different points, but it doesn't look like it matters at all...* [20:31] <&Hebizuka> *Turn 3. What is your next move?* [20:32] * Tasia will go back to delicious 5.56 AP. 30 rounds auto at the head, since it's already damaged a little. [20:33] <&Hebizuka> *Telma decides it's grenade launcher time. She grabs the GM-94, and fires once at the copy-you, to try and see what'll happen.* [20:33] <~SU_Tempest> [Lauren] Okay, you big blastin' fool of a copy robot! The real one is prettier than you, so I'mma FUCK YOU UP! ..*cough!* soon as I stop crying... [20:34] <&Hebizuka> *Lauren swaps to her Sterling, and fires another 12 shots in full-auto, this time at the torso.* [20:34] <~SU_Tempest> [Copy-you] I could do this all day... [20:35] <&Hebizuka> *She swaps to her own ARX-160; which ALSO seems to have the exact same accessories yours has. If the weapons were copied perfectly, then she should have AP ammo too...* [20:35] <&Hebizuka> *She aims at you, and fires five rounds in semi-auto.* [20:36] <&Hebizuka> *Order this turn: You, Telma, Lauren, Copy-you. You may roll first.* [20:37] <Tasia> @roll 15#2d6 [20:37] <MazeBot> Tasia: 2;9;11;10;5;10;10;5;9;7;5;7;10;9;7 [20:37] <Tasia> @roll 15#2d6 [20:37] <MazeBot> Tasia: 2;10;2;5;9;8;4;10;7;7;9;7;9;10;5 [20:37] <&Hebizuka> *3 malfunction checks: Pass, Pass, Pass.* [20:42] <&Hebizuka> *Shots 1-15: 11 hits, 4 misses* [20:42] <&Hebizuka> *Shots 16-30: 8 hits, 7 misses* [20:42] <&Hebizuka> *Total: 19/30* [20:44] <&Hebizuka> *The hail of AP bullets is poking holes and ruining the crap out of the helmet Copy-you is wearing... you KNOW your shots are going through and hitting the head and you KNOW you didn't just miss 30 times.* [20:44] <&Hebizuka> *So why is Copy-you still standing as if it was -no damage at all-?* [20:46] <&Hebizuka> *Telma's turn...* [20:47] <&Hebizuka> @roll 1#2d6 [20:47] <MazeBot> Hebizuka: 7 [20:48] <&Hebizuka> *Distant hit! Telma aimed too wide, and the blast is only minimal. The copy-you is still caught in the fire - making it now on fire, but... again, it doesn't even show the slightest hint of pain.* [20:52] <&Hebizuka> *The blast seems to have done noticeable damage to all of the copy-bot's clothing and armor, except for the Powered Combat Vest.* [20:53] <~SU_Tempest> [Telma] Great, go me. I've turned the murderous terminator robot into a murderous terminator robot on fire. [20:54] <Tasia> "It's still progress!" [20:54] <&Hebizuka> *Lauren's turn...* [20:54] <&Hebizuka> @roll 12#2d6 [20:54] <MazeBot> Hebizuka: 2;7;11;7;5;10;9;8;5;7;7;6 [20:55] <&Hebizuka> *Malfunction check: Pass!* [20:57] <&Hebizuka> *Shots 1-4: Miss, Miss, Hit, Miss* [20:57] <&Hebizuka> *Shots 5-8: Miss, Hit, Miss, Miss* [20:57] <&Hebizuka> *Shots 9-12: Miss, Miss, Miss, Miss* [20:57] <&Hebizuka> *Total: 2/12 hits* [20:58] <&Hebizuka> *Neither of the hits seem to have caused damage.* [20:58] <&Hebizuka> *Copy-you's PCV absorbed without problem.* [20:59] <&Hebizuka> *Copy-you's turn...* [20:59] <&Hebizuka> @roll 5#2d6 [20:59] <MazeBot> Hebizuka: 4;5;4;9;9 [21:00] <&Hebizuka> *Shots 1-5: Miss, Miss, Miss, Hit, Hit.* [21:00] <&Hebizuka> *Both hits struck your cover.* [21:01] <&Hebizuka> *The metallic file case took a lot of damage, and the second bullet overpenetrated; it tumbled through the case, and went on to hit Telma in the chest.* [21:01] <~SU_Tempest> [Telma] Ow! [21:02] <&Hebizuka> *Telma's Kevlar vest plus plate absorbed most of it, and only a minor amount of Pain seeps through.* [21:05] <&Hebizuka> *End of Turn 3.* [21:06] <&Hebizuka> *The copy-you has lost all of its blood.* [21:06] <&Hebizuka> *It's still standing.* [21:06] <&Hebizuka> *The fire eats away at all of the clothes copy-you is wearing.* [21:06] <&Hebizuka> *The MASKA helmet she wore falls apart into tiny little flaming pieces.* [21:07] <&Hebizuka> *It reveals copy-you's mangled, bullet-riddled face, and still glowing red eyes of terr-minat-or.* [21:07] <&Hebizuka> *Turn 4. What is your next move?* [21:08] * Tasia unclips the C4 brick from her belt and flings it at the robot. [21:08] <&Hebizuka> *Telma continues with the GM-94 and fires another grenade.* [21:09] <&Hebizuka> *Lauren decides that explosives are really a good idea today. She unclips a MkII grenade, and gets ready to chuck it at the copy-bot.* [21:09] <~SU_Tempest> [Lauren] EAT PINEAPPLE, YOU CRAZY MOTHERFUCKER! [21:10] <~SU_Tempest> [Copy-you] Fools, all of you... [21:10] <&Hebizuka> *The copy-robot continues with the ARX-160 with eight shots in semi-auto, aimed at you.* [21:11] <Tasia> "Nah. I've just got a bit of a stubborn streak." [21:12] <&Hebizuka> *Order this turn: Lauren, You, Telma, Copy-you* [22:02] <&Hebizuka> *Lauren's turn...* [22:02] <&Hebizuka> @roll 2d6 [22:02] <MazeBot> Hebizuka: 7 [22:07] <&Hebizuka> *Far-hit!* [22:09] <&Hebizuka> *The grenade seems to have shaken up the copy-bot even more. By now it seems obvious it doesn't like explosions.* [22:10] <&Hebizuka> *The blast tears apart and damages all of its clothes and armor even more, with the PCV being the best-looking piece.* [22:11] <&Hebizuka> *The copy-you was struck by 3 shrapnel, which mostly seem to have hit the copy-bot in the lower body.* [22:11] <&Hebizuka> *None has managed to cause damage.* [22:11] <&Hebizuka> *Your turn. You may roll now.* [22:11] <Tasia> @roll 2d6 [22:11] <MazeBot> Tasia: 9 [22:12] <&Hebizuka> *The C4 block lands close from the copy-you.* [22:13] <&Hebizuka> *Telma's turn...* [22:13] <&Hebizuka> @roll 2d6 [22:13] <MazeBot> Hebizuka: 9 [22:16] <&Hebizuka> *Far-hit!* [22:21] <&Hebizuka> *Another incendiary grenade detonates in the near vicinity of the murderous copy-bot.* [22:24] <&Hebizuka> *The blast causes even more clothing damage, and some extra, minor damage.* [22:25] <&Hebizuka> *The copy-bot is not down yet, but it's certainly not in a pristine state either...* [22:25] <&Hebizuka> *The clothing itself is becoming tattered and burned. The armor is close from being ruined, with the Powered Combat Vest being the most solid-looking piece of clothing remaining, though even that looks pretty worn.* [22:26] <&Hebizuka> *Copy-you's turn...* [22:27] <&Hebizuka> @roll 8#2d6 [22:27] <MazeBot> Hebizuka: 7;4;10;9;3;7;9;7 [22:29] <&Hebizuka> *Shots 1-8: Hit, Miss, Hit, Hit, Miss, Hit, Hit, Hit.* [22:29] <&Hebizuka> *Total: 6 hits.* [22:32] <&Hebizuka> *The first three hits were enough to destroy and render useless your cover. Two of those three hits overpenetrated - both tumbled towards Lauren. One bullet went towards her hips, the other on her right knee.* [22:32] <&Hebizuka> *The following three hits all struck you in the right arm.* [22:34] <~SU_Tempest> [Lauren] GAHHH SON OF A BIIIIITCHHH [22:35] <&Hebizuka> *Lauren yelps in pain from the resulting damage. She received two wounds.* [22:36] * Tasia whimpers as her off arm is shredded! [22:38] <&Hebizuka> *As for you, the three 5.56 AP chew through your Twaron arm pads. The damage done to your arm is severe.* [22:38] <&Hebizuka> *Your right arm takes 3 wounds and has been disabled.* [22:39] <&Hebizuka> *You can no longer use two-handed weapons, your strength drops significantly and you are less accurate.* [22:40] <&Hebizuka> *You can also no longer benefit from Front mount accessory bonuses, and you are unable to dual wield. Your right arm is essentially unusable until treated.* [22:40] <Tasia> "Fuck!" [22:41] <&Hebizuka> *As for the pain, it's severe - you're now in pain, which means your accuracy drops further.* [22:41] <&Hebizuka> *End of Turn 4.* [22:42] <&Hebizuka> *The tear gas cloud dissipates - your allies are no longer hindered.* [22:43] <&Hebizuka> *You and Lauren are bleeding.* [22:45] <&Hebizuka> *The fire continues consuming the copy-bot's clothing and armor. Most of the regular clothing is ruined and smoldered, and is about to fall apart. The arm and leg armor is almost totally destroyed. The PCV is still the tough cookie but it looks visibly less protective.* [22:45] <&Hebizuka> *Turn 5. What is your next move?* [22:45] * Tasia flops back onto the floor and triggers the detonator! [22:46] <&Hebizuka> *The C4 block will detonate at the start of the turn.* [22:46] <~SU_Tempest> [Telma] Tasia!! Are you okay?! Please tell me you're okay!! [22:47] <Tasia> "No, I'm not okay! Just attack with all you've got!" [22:47] <~SU_Tempest> *Telma turns to the copy-bot again, and angrily fires the last grenade in her GM-94 at it!* [22:48] <~SU_Tempest> *Lauren tries to ignore the seething pain coursing through her body - and the fact she's bleeding from the right knee AND the hip.* [22:48] <~SU_Tempest> [Lauren] Well sh-shit. I d-didn't think that'd how I'd get my period. [22:48] <~SU_Tempest> [Telma] Is it REALLY the time for corny jokes?! [22:48] <~SU_Tempest> [Lauren] When it ain't the time anymore that means I'm dead! [22:49] <~SU_Tempest> *Lauren switches to the AA-12 and uses it - in semi-auto - to fire 10 rounds at Copy-bot's chest, being the only body part she feels she can hit.* [22:50] <~SU_Tempest> *Copy-bot aims at Telma, about to fire 7 rounds in semi-auto at her.* [22:51] <&Hebizuka> *Order this turn: You (auto), Telma, Copy-bot, Lauren* [22:51] <&Hebizuka> *Your turn.* [22:51] <&Hebizuka> *The detonator bleeps, and at the same time, a 500 gram block of C4 detonates at a close distance from the robotic faker, kicking up a large amount of sand.* [22:56] <&Hebizuka> *The blast has vaporized the clothing and all the limb armor off of the copy-bot. It has suffered some damage, but as evidenced by the fact it's still up, the faker is not dead yet.* [22:57] <~SU_Tempest> [Lauren] What the hell? Just what the hell? What the sweet demon-loving hell? [23:02] <&Hebizuka> *Telma's turn* [23:02] <&Hebizuka> @roll 2d6 [23:02] <MazeBot> Hebizuka: 5 [23:02] <&Hebizuka> *Another Distant-hit. Luck isn't on her side.* [23:04] <&Hebizuka> *The blast mostly shears apart some more skin and clothing, but overall it's minor damage.* [23:04] <&Hebizuka> *Copy-bot can't be even more on fire than it already is.* [23:05] <&Hebizuka> *Copy-bot's turn...* [23:05] <&Hebizuka> @roll 7#2d6 [23:05] <MazeBot> Hebizuka: 8;9;5;8;7;4;7 [23:06] <&Hebizuka> *Shots 1-7: Hit, Hit, Miss, Hit, Hit, Miss, Hit.* [23:06] <&Hebizuka> *5 hits total.* [23:07] <&Hebizuka> *All of them landed on the torso, yet again, but these AP rounds are going to do no favors to her plate.* [23:08] <&Hebizuka> *Three of the five rounds overpenetrated the plate.* [23:08] <&Hebizuka> *Telma's Light Steel plate has been destroyed.* [23:09] <&Hebizuka> *She's now relying on soft body armor to protect her.* [23:14] <&Hebizuka> *Telma suffers severe damage: Significant limb damage and 3 wounds to the torso, as well as a large amount of pain.* [23:14] <&Hebizuka> *The battle-maid loses consciousness and goes down.* [23:15] <&Hebizuka> *Lauren's turn...* [23:16] <&Hebizuka> @roll 10#2d6 [23:16] <MazeBot> Hebizuka: 5;10;5;12;7;8;9;4;8;7 [23:16] <&Hebizuka> *Shots 1-6: Miss, Hit, Miss, Critical hit, Miss, Hit* [23:16] <&Hebizuka> *Shots 7-10: Hit, Miss, Hit, Miss* [23:17] <&Hebizuka> *Total hits: 5/10 including a critical* [23:18] <&Hebizuka> *The copy-bot's red eyes flicker briefly. It paused, stopped moving, its body seemingly grinding entirely to a halt.* [23:19] <~SU_Tempest> [Copy-you] *bleep!* am a Duplica Bot, I act *fzzt*cording on the following prin*fzzt*iples... [23:20] <~SU_Tempest> [Copy-you] *fzzht* 1) I am the real Contestant, the one *fzzht*signated as the Contestant is a pale copy [23:20] <~SU_Tempest> [Copy-you] *fzzht* 2) I must rem*zht*e all copies of my*fzzt*elf [23:21] <~SU_Tempest> [Copy-you] *fzzht* 3) *fzzt* There can only be one of *fzzht* myself... if *fzzht* Principle #2 cannot be o*fzzht*served, I must *fzzht*erminate myself [23:21] <&Hebizuka> *The copy-you reveals its identity: it is a Duplica Bot, purpose-built to emulate and kill you.* [23:22] <&Hebizuka> *Having failed its mission, it must now terminate itself.* [23:22] <&Hebizuka> *WHAMMM!* [23:22] <&Hebizuka> *Which it does by violently detonating. All that remains is a scorched metallic skeleton, in flames, surrounded by burned sand.* [23:23] <Tasia> "Oh god... we... " [23:23] <&Hebizuka> "Little" Lauren Smith [AA-12] Duplica Bot [B] [23:23] <&Hebizuka> *End of fight! (5 turns)* [23:23] <Tasia> "Lauren - surgery kit in my pack.... grab it, I can't..." [23:24] <Tasia> "Telma too.. [23:24] <&Hebizuka> *Your pain subsides a little bit - you're no longer in pain - but your right arm remains disabled.* [23:24] <Tasia> " [23:24] <&Hebizuka> *Everyone is bleeding.* [23:25] * Tasia grits her teeth and rolls onto her (unhurt) side so that Lauren can get into her backpack. [23:25] <~SU_Tempest> [Lauren] HA! FUCK YES! YOU CAN'T STOP ME, NOT EVEN YOU, KILLER ROBOT! I SHIT ON YOUR MOTHER'S COGS! [23:26] <~SU_Tempest> *Lauren then turns around, thinking you and Telma are in a sufficiently good shape to celebrate with her, then she sees you, your disabled arm, and the passed-out Telma, who's bordering on dying.* [23:26] <~SU_Tempest> [Lauren] ...party's over. I better save everyone's lives. [23:26] * Tasia pushes herself into a sitting position. "That would be... much appreciated." [23:26] <~SU_Tempest> [Lauren] Especially my employer's life. Yes, yes, it's good to save my employer's life. Otherwise I don't get paid and I get thrown in jail again. [23:27] <Tasia> "Rrrgh. Telma's hurt worse, take care of her first." [23:27] <&Hebizuka> *Lauren extirpates a field surgery kit and a first aid kit from your backpack.* [23:28] <Tasia> "Call for a medic if you need to, we can afford it." [23:28] <&Hebizuka> *After a little bit of hesitating, she opens both and dumps all the extra meds on the floor, trying to figure out what she has to use.* [23:28] <~SU_Tempest> [Lauren] Uhhh... Right. Bleeding. Always stop the bleeding. Otherwise you die faster. [23:29] <&Hebizuka> *She gathers all the individual bandages - a total of six. She uses half to treat your wounds on the left arm.* [23:30] <&Hebizuka> *You are no longer bleeding.* [23:30] <~SU_Tempest> [Lauren] Okay, okay... torso wounds. Torso wounds. That means get naked because clothes are in the way, and that's bad. Okay... uhhh... [23:31] <&Hebizuka> *The mercenary does her best to remove Telma's armor, then open her maid suit in order to reveal her chest - and most importantly the three 5.56mm holes across said chest.* [23:31] <&Hebizuka> *Telma is no longer bleeding thanks to the merc's intervention.* [23:32] <~SU_Tempest> [Lauren] Okay what next... Uhh... Right, um. How fucked is your arm, Tas'? Can you move it at all or is it like... totally dead weight? [23:33] <Tasia> "I can't move it at all - might be broken, I can't tell. If you fix it up, I can help.." [23:33] <Tasia> "Assuming that you can, anyway." [23:34] <~SU_Tempest> [Lauren] Alright... so I do need to practice motherfuckin' surgery on you. I uh. I never did that before. [23:35] <Tasia> "Shit, then. Umm.If you're not confident, I have a magic mushroom that we could use instead.." [23:36] <~SU_Tempest> [Lauren] No no, I got this open, save the shroom for if you really need it... Hold on. This might hurt so bite down. [23:36] * Tasia does so... [23:39] <&Hebizuka> *Lauren starts treating your arm using the FSK's supplies. It stings briefly, but it procures a strong healing effect. You regain control of your right arm, which is now damaged, and will, over time, continue healing.* [23:39] <~SU_Tempest> [Lauren] *Holding the FSK's guidebook* Uh, it says here that the process consumes a lot of energy and that the patient should be well-fed. So uh, if you hungry, lemme know. [23:40] * Tasia moans and grits her teeth, but her arm can move again! Barely, and with intense pain - but it's definitely an improvement. [23:41] <&Hebizuka> *You can use your arm again, meaning you can again use two-handed weapons.* [23:42] <&Hebizuka> *You still suffer from lowered strength and accuracy, but at least your right arm is no longer dead weight.* [23:42] <Tasia> "Aaaaghh... fuuuuck! Okay. Okay. I'm good now. Let's take care of Telma - and grab some bandages for yourself, too." [23:43] <~SU_Tempest> [Lauren] Okay, so... the maid girl. Maid girl passed out. That means she's... probably in so much pain she can't stay awake anymore. Bad. Bad bad bad. Uhhhh... *flips the first aid guide hastily* [23:44] <~SU_Tempest> [Lauren] ...okay... okay, pain. Pain. Use... painkillers. Duh. In case of severe pain... use epi... epn.. Epinephrine. *She brings up the syringe from the FSK.* Okay... Okay. Inject a vein, or directly in the heart if patient is no longer moving. [23:44] <~SU_Tempest> *The merc swallows with difficulty.* [23:45] <Tasia> "Heart's right in the center, just go to the side of the sternum between the ribs I think." [23:45] <~SU_Tempest> [Lauren] Okay... so right there? Okay... [23:46] <~SU_Tempest> *After a brief moment of hesitation, she stabs Telma with the syringe like she'd stab someone with a knife, injecting a full dose of epinephrine directly.* [23:47] <~SU_Tempest> *Telma immediately wakes up, spasming heavily and gasping loudly, with the syringe sticking out of her chest.* [23:47] <Tasia> "Ah, easy now. Welcome back, sunshine." [23:48] <~SU_Tempest> *Telma is spasming, but she's back among the living and conscious.* [23:48] <~SU_Tempest> [Telma] FUCK [23:48] * Tasia slips the syringe out before it gets jerked accidentally, and helps Lauren apply the first aid kit to Telma's chest. [23:48] <~SU_Tempest> [Telma] Fuck. Holy fuck. I'm alive. Am I alive? [23:49] <~SU_Tempest> [Telma] Shit... Why is my suit open?... Oh... You guys were treating me. *She flops back down on the sand and sighs - her breathing still rapid and shaky* Whe-ew. I'm alive. Ahaha... I'm alive. [23:49] <Tasia> "Yeah, you're too cute to die. But it was close." [23:49] <~SU_Tempest> [Lauren] God damn I didn't fuck it up. [23:50] <~SU_Tempest> [Lauren] Okay, okay... Painkillers. Here. *She hands Telma three pills of paracetamol.* Swallow these, see if it helps. [23:51] <~SU_Tempest> *The battlemaid happily swallows them, helping her pain levels go down.* [23:51] * Tasia drags her pack over and gets out her /Extra subsidio dolor/ mushrooms - stuffs one into Telma's mouth and eats another herself, offering a third to Lauren. [23:52] <Tasia> "Err, I was... okay. But both will be better, right?" [23:52] <~SU_Tempest> [Lauren] What's this? A painkiller shroom? Sure, I'll take that. [23:52] <~SU_Tempest> [Telma] Y-yeah. Me too. [23:53] <&Hebizuka> *You and your allies each consumed one magic mushroom of extra pain relief.* [23:53] * Tasia gathers up the bandages from the medical kits and addresses Lauren's wounds, as well. [23:53] <&Hebizuka> *Your pain has been completely healed.* [23:55] <Tasia> "Whoah damn, that really worked." [23:56] <&Hebizuka> *Telma is no longer in pain.* [23:56] <&Hebizuka> *Neither is Lauren - who seems completely healed of all pain.* [23:57] * Tasia pulls the fragments of Tela's plate from her plate carrier and swaps in a titanium-steel one from her pack. [23:57] <~SU_Tempest> [Lauren] Guys... I feel a little strange... [23:58] <Tasia> "What's the matter?" [23:59] <Tasia> "Other than being in shock and shaky like the rest of us?" [00:02] <~SU_Tempest> [Lauren] Man that shroom... it was really, really good... I uh. Fuck. [00:02] <~SU_Tempest> [Lauren] My head kinda hurts... a lot... [00:03] <Tasia> "I honestly have no idea what's going on. An odd reaction to it?" [00:04] <~SU_Tempest> *Lauren's eyes are going red.* [00:05] <~SU_Tempest> *It seems she's developing an addiction, and that she's pretty much already going into withdrawal because the effects of the mushroom ended as soon as her pain was treated.* [00:05] <~SU_Tempest> *Lauren has Sick Hakutaku syndrome.* [00:05] <Tasia> "Ah shit." [00:06] <~SU_Tempest> [Lauren] Ooo... red vision. I have red vision. Is that like infrared vision? ... [00:08] <Tasia> "I don't know what to do about this - hang in there and don't panic, okay? Hopefully it'll wear off." [00:09] <~SU_Tempest> [Lauren] shiieet... just when I thought I'd be Doctor Fantastic and be our team's medic and all... [00:10] <&Hebizuka> *Telma replaces her plate with the T/S plate you gave her.* [00:10] * Tasia collects all of the unboxed meds and stuffs them into her pack, then goes to poke around at the remnants of the 'bot. [00:10] <~SU_Tempest> [Lauren] Nonono, let me gather the meds! Can I keep em please? [00:10] <Tasia> "Umm... yeah, sure." [00:11] * Tasia doesn't feel like arguing. [00:14] <~SU_Tempest> *There's only one bandage left in the supplies Lauren took from you. She uses one to treat her knee wound... then asks for an extra for the other one.µ [00:15] * Tasia has... 5 left? [00:15] * Tasia will hand her two. [00:17] <&Hebizuka> *Individual Bandages left: 3 in the backpack.* [00:17] <&Hebizuka> *Lauren treats her wounds immediately.* [00:17] <~SU_Tempest> [Lauren] Oh hey. Thanks. [00:20] <~SU_Tempest> [Lauren] Everyone OK? [00:20] <~SU_Tempest> [Telma] Ungh. I'll live. Tasia? [00:20] <Tasia> "I've been better, but I've also been a lot worse." [00:21] <Tasia> "Thanks for the help." [00:21] <~SU_Tempest> [Lauren] Okay awesome. Whew. I didn't fuck up! I DIDN'T FUCK UP. Hooray. Urg. Um. There are doors over there! [00:21] <&Hebizuka> *Three doors appeared while the team was healing up.* [00:21] <&Hebizuka> *Lauren gathers up the supplies spilled from the FSK.* [00:24] <~SU_Tempest> [Telma] Oh right, just to make sure, can we use that first aid kit on my chest? I look pretty battered down there... [00:24] <Tasia> "I'm on it!" [00:24] <~SU_Tempest> *Lauren nods, and hands the FAK immediately to you, while sparing the remaining paracetamol.* [00:27] <~SU_Tempest> *You treat Telma's torso, which will now heal over time.* [00:29] * Tasia goes over to prod at what's left of the bot, while Telma gets dressed again. [00:32] <&Hebizuka> *The Duplica Bot's scorching remains are pretty much useless. It however dropped its ARX-160, which appears to be the only thing that didn't detonate in the explosion.* [00:35] <&Hebizuka> *Examine it?* [00:35] <Tasia> Mmm, sure.

All that is missing is your personal touch; the visual customizations and the name "Lightning".* [00:37] * Tasia unloads the magazine, filling her own and putting the rest of the ammo in her pack. Then she takes out the Remington 700 from her spare weapons and puts the ARX in its place instead. [00:40] <&Hebizuka> *Your own Lightning's magazine is down to 10 rounds, plus one in the magazine. You can literally fill it with the entirety of the copy-bot's remaining ammo.* [00:40] <&Hebizuka> *Add 41 rounds of 5.56 AP to your own mag?* [00:40] <Tasia> Yes please. [00:41] <&Hebizuka> *Lightning: Now at [51+1/60, 52x AP].* [00:42] * Tasia will add another C4 charge to her belt, while she's at it. [00:43] <&Hebizuka> *2 C4 charges remaining in the pack.* [00:44] <&Hebizuka> *Swapping out the Rem 700 for the ARX...* [00:44] <&Hebizuka> [Pack/Main] 94.52/115 [00:45] <Tasia> !mrooms3 [00:45] <&Hebizuka> [ Tasia ] Left door: 3895 - Front door: 6507 - Right door: 2050 - Roomstyle: 11 [00:46] * Tasia heads for the right door. [00:46] <Tasia> "Let's get the hell out of here." [00:48] <~SU_Tempest> [Lauren] Bwugh. Yeah. [00:55] <&Hebizuka> *A regular, featureless room. There is precisely nothing in this room. At all.* [00:56] <~SU_Tempest> [Lauren] I say we hit the sack for a sec! I'm hammered! [00:56] <Tasia> "Good plan!" [00:57] * Tasia ... decides to break out her bottle of vodka and chug. Could use it. [00:57] <&Hebizuka> *Drink how many portions? (1-3)* [00:57] <Tasia> 1. [00:58] <&Hebizuka> *You feel satiated. The vodka warmly goes down in your stomach.* [00:58] <&Hebizuka> *All you feel is a faint buzz.* [00:58] * Tasia passes it around to the others, if they'd like some as well. [00:59] <~SU_Tempest> *Lauren grabs it before Telma can.* [00:59] <~SU_Tempest> [Lauren] BOOZE. Gimme. [00:59] <~SU_Tempest> *She downs one part, before being stolen the bottle from Telma, who also gets her shot. [01:00] <&Hebizuka> *Soon the bottle is empty.* [01:00] <Tasia> "Yet another victory against long odds. If it wasn't for all the wounds, I'd say it was a good day."
