From Mazeworld

[14:47] <&Hebizuka> *Welcome back to the Mazes, Tasia. You have visited 364 rooms. The next special room is right ahead (!mrooms1). You are currently in a healthy condition with no outstanding issues. Your allies Telma and Lauren are as ready as ever.* [14:47] * +Tasia looks around and cautiously proceeds to the next door. [14:47] <+Tasia> !mrooms1 [14:47] <&Hebizuka> [ Tasia ] Unique door: 839 - Roomstyle: 599 [14:53] <&Hebizuka> *You enter inside the lobby area of what appears to be a sort of half-warehouse, half-office facility. After a little bit of looking around, you realize you're in the top level of a mining facility. There are several things you can distinguish here: an office desk manned by what appears to be a miner, titled "ore bank". You notice a jewelry store set up in the corner, and a supplies shop, in another corner.* [14:54] * +Tasia walks over to the supplies shop, to see what they have to offer. [14:55] <&Hebizuka> *The supplies shop looks tiny compared to other shops and outlets you've seen before in the Mazes, and is manned by a miner.* [14:55] <~SU_Tempest> [Miner] Can I help yall? [14:56] <+Tasia> "Perhaps! what do you sell here?" [14:58] <~SU_Tempest> [Miner] Pick-axes, C4 charges for blast mining, and food for long sustenance in case yall plan to spend a while down there. [14:59] <+Tasia> "Interesting. What do you mine here?" [15:00] <~SU_Tempest> [Miner] All sorts of things. There's a quantity of ores down there, but there also tends to be creatures lurking in the veins. I advise not going too deep unless yall are prepared to face the local inhabitants. [15:00] <~SU_Tempest> [Miner] First time in a mine? [15:01] <+Tasia> "Yes, but it sounds enticing if there's valuables to be had." [15:01] <+Tasia> "How would one identify the ores?" [15:02] <~SU_Tempest> [Miner] If ya got the guts and the equipment, feel free. Mines are free to visit long as you have the gear and the bag space. It's at your own risk though. [15:02] <+Tasia> "I assume we'd need a pick and some C4, then. Not that I'd turn down explosives anyhow..." [15:03] <~SU_Tempest> [Miner] You can bring your ore back up here to have it appraised and identified - if it's valuable, the ore bank miner will convert it into ingots if it's in a tradable material; otherwise, he'll just pay you in cash directly. If you find good stuff, don't hesitate to go visit the jewelry guy... [15:03] <~SU_Tempest> [Miner] You won't be able to mine shit if you don't at least have a pick. And I'm your guy if you want that! [15:04] <+Tasia> "Hokay. I'll take one, and some C4 blocks." [15:04] <&Hebizuka> *Pick-axes are available in virtually unlimited amounts at the mining supplies. C4 charges are in limited quantity, due to their much improved effectiveness - and the fact they are relatively effortless to use.* [15:05] * +Tasia orders one pickaxe and two medium C4 blocks. [15:06] <&Hebizuka> *Mining supplies for sale: Pick-axe (400 P$), Mini C4 charge (Qty: 4, 350 P$), Small C4 charge (Qty: 2, 700 P$), Large C4 charge (sold out!)* [15:06] <&Hebizuka> (By medium, should I assume "small"?) [15:06] <+Tasia> (Yes.) [15:07] <~SU_Tempest> [Miner] Your total's 1800 P$. Hope ya get a good return on investment. [15:07] <+Tasia> "If you accept valuables, I've got some to sellto cover this. Otherwise I can just run over to the bank." [15:08] <~SU_Tempest> [Miner] Sure I do, what's the point if I couldn't. [15:08] * +Tasia hands over some goods. [15:08] <+Tasia> [Valuable] Metal - Golden lighter - Value 300 P$ - Weight: 0.1 [15:08] <+Tasia> [Valuable] Red gem - Spinel - Value 50-150 P$ (1d101 +49) - Weight: 0.1 [Qty: 4] [15:09] <~SU_Tempest> [Miner] Imagine being in the ONE place where you dug out a hundred of gemstones and you have a dumbass mining supply teller saying "duh no I can't accept valuables, only cash". I've seen beginner miners do that, thinking it was the ore bank office guy's job. [15:09] <+Tasia> "How much would these knock off of the bill?" [15:09] <~SU_Tempest> *The miner appraises your spinels: 135, 130, 89, 51 - total value 405 P$.* [15:09] <~SU_Tempest> [Miner] That'll cover 705 P$, leaves 1095 for you to pay. [15:10] * +Tasia pays the cash over. "Thanks. I hope this is a good investment." [15:11] <&Hebizuka> *Money remaining: 457 P$ in pouch* [15:11] <~SU_Tempest> [Miner] Awesome. Lemme get these to you... [15:12] <&Hebizuka> [Weapon] Class 4 - Small C4 charge. A 200 gram charge of Composition C4 for demolishing and destroying. Requires a detonator to be set off. Weight: 2/item - [Quantity: 2] [15:12] <&Hebizuka> [Weapon] Class 5 Long: Pick-axe - Sharp/Piercing. Weight: 14 [15:13] * +Tasia equips the pickaxe and places the explosives in her pack. [15:14] <&Hebizuka> *Pick-axe equipped!* [15:14] <&Hebizuka> [Pack/Main] 98.7/115 [15:15] <~SU_Tempest> [Miner] Good luck down there. Don't hesitate to ask the ore bank office if you need more info. [15:15] * +Tasia looks for an intrance to the mines proper. [15:15] <+Tasia> "Thank you, will do." [15:16] * +Tasia will, actually, stop at the bank office. [15:16] <&Hebizuka> *Another miner greets you.* [15:16] <~SU_Tempest> [Office miner] Welcome! May I help you? [15:17] <+Tasia> "Yes - I'd like to know what exactly the ores in this mine are like, since I've a mind to try and find some." [15:19] <~SU_Tempest> [Office miner] Well, the ore patches we've discovered already have probably been mined out and processed. What is actually still down there, we have no idea! [15:20] <+Tasia> "Okay, do you have any suggestions as to what to look out for?" [15:22] <~SU_Tempest> [Office miner] If you find an ore patch in a particular mineshaft, mine it or blast it out. Here is a document that will help you identify which is which. [15:22] <&Hebizuka> [Key item] Ore identification guide [15:24] <~SU_Tempest> [Office miner] Note that this WON'T help you identify processed gems - what we call jewels. It will only help you here in the mines, to avoid wasting your pickaxe time or explosives on ores you don't deem valuable. Though, if you're the kind that's strapped for cash, I suggest you stock up on food and dig up everything you can carry... [15:24] <+Tasia> "Gotcha." [15:25] <~SU_Tempest> [Office miner] I can also tell you that this particular mine has 10 levels, and it is one of the deepest in the Mazes. You three seem well-equipped to handle the monsters in the lower levels, but take it easy if it's your first time. Nobody will laugh at you if you come back early. [15:25] * +Tasia flips through the guide to familiarie herself with the basics, then puts it in her belt. "I'm itching to get started. Where's the entrance?" [15:26] <~SU_Tempest> [Office miner] Over there, the big red door that says "mine access". [15:26] <+Tasia> "Ah, thanks!" [15:26] <+Tasia> "I'll be back sooner or later..." [15:26] <~SU_Tempest> [Telma] I've never been in a mine before... [15:26] <~SU_Tempest> [Lauren] It may come as a shock to you all but I ain't never been in one before either. This gonna be a first for Lil' Lauren. [15:26] * +Tasia heads over to the access door. "Neither have I. It should be interesting." [15:28] <&Hebizuka> *You are now in the access elevator. Head to which mine level?* [15:28] <&Hebizuka> *Valid range: -1 to -10* [15:29] * +Tasia punches in 6, that seems like a good bet to start with. [15:29] <&Hebizuka> *The elevator hums, and starts taking you deep, deep downwards...* [15:31] <&Hebizuka> *You reach Mine Level -6. You see a dug out corridor, which appears to be safe. You see 4 mineshafts, entrances lettered A, B, C and D. Pick one in order to discover what's inside, deal with it, then return to the corridor to pick another mineshaft, and so until you've cleared the entire level, or you desire to leave.* [15:32] * +Tasia goes for shaft A. [15:33] <+Tasia> "Be on the lookout, as usual. There's no telling what might be down here." [15:33] <~SU_Tempest> [Telma] Understood! [15:33] <~SU_Tempest> [Lauren] As always, boss. [15:35] <&Hebizuka> [MLvl6-A] *You see a group of three miners, carrying pick-axes, C4 charges, and assault rifles. They are going about doing their business, and their business is apparently digging through rock. No ore patch of any sort in sight. There isn't much to do in this mineshaft other than leave and keep searching.* [15:36] * +Tasia turns around, then and heads for B instead. [15:36] <+Tasia> "If this level is being worked, that's a good sign." [15:37] <&Hebizuka> [MLvl6-B] *This mineshaft is empty. It's all rock and boring.* [15:39] <~SU_Tempest> [Telma] Well, so far so good... I didn't plan on dying in a mineshaft anyway. [15:39] <~SU_Tempest> [Lauren] Could be worse! [15:39] * +Tasia looks around for anything that resembles ore. [15:39] <~SU_Tempest> [Lauren] Like dying in an animal cell in a hiring bureau. [15:40] <&Hebizuka> *There is no ore patch in this shaft.* [15:40] * +Tasia nods. "Aye, I wouldn't want to end up there either." [15:40] * +Tasia heads for shaft C. [15:41] <&Hebizuka> [MLvl6-C] *You enter the C mineshaft, and discover an ore patch!* [15:42] <+Tasia> "Oh hey, I think I've found something." [15:42] * +Tasia gets out her ore guide to identify it. [15:44] <&Hebizuka> *Your guide helps you estimate there is a consistent patch of jade ore, which is a type of common gemstone ore.* [15:45] * +Tasia will take up the pickaxe and attempt to mine a bit. [15:46] <+Tasia> "I think I can dig some of this loose..." [15:46] <&Hebizuka> *HOW TO MINE: Use your pick-axe and announce an amount of turns you plan on spending to strike the ore patch. Every strike has a 1/5 chance to extract the ore and will consume nutrition. Or, use explosives to immediately blast the ore out. A limb damage roll is performed - the result is the total amount of pickaxe strikes (and thus, pickaxe turns) that will be blown out at once.* [15:47] * +Tasia will use 10 turns with the pickaxe. [15:47] <&Hebizuka> *Please roll 10#1d5.* [15:47] <+Tasia> @roll 10#1d5 [15:47] <MazeBot> Tasia: 5;3;2;2;2;3;1;4;3;3 [15:52] <&Hebizuka> *Strike the earth! You hit the jade ore patch 10 times, and manage to extract one bundle of gemstone ore for your efforts.* [15:52] <&Hebizuka> [Item] (Gemstone ore) Jade ore, 90 grams - weight 0.09 [15:53] <&Hebizuka> *Already, you're working up a sweat, but at least your efforts are (for now) paying.* [15:54] <+Tasia> "Whew! Let's see if there's anything more valuable elsewhere." [15:55] * +Tasia puts the jade into her pack. [15:55] <+Tasia> Time to try shaft D. [15:59] <&Hebizuka> *The patch still bears a medium amount of jade ore - you can try working to get more, or try another shaft.* [16:03] * +Tasia will give it 5 more turns. [16:03] <+Tasia> @roll 5#1d5 [16:03] <MazeBot> Tasia: 4;5;5;3;2 [16:07] <&Hebizuka> *You struck the earth again five times, and managed to extract two more bundles of jade gemstone ore.* [16:07] * +Tasia takes these as well. [16:08] <&Hebizuka> [Item] (Gemstone ore) Jade ore, 133 grams - weight 0.13 [16:08] <&Hebizuka> [Item] (Gemstone ore) Jade ore, 99 grams - weight 0.1 [16:09] <+Tasia> "Okay, let's try another shaft. I'm not sure that this is all that valuable, compared to oter stuff that might be down here." [16:09] * +Tasia heads for Shaft D... [16:09] <~SU_Tempest> [Lauren] Least, you're getting pretty green rocks. That can't be so bad! Green rocks tend to be useful in comic books. [16:11] <&Hebizuka> [MLvl6-D] You reach inside the last mineshaft of this level, only to be confronted with three gorillas. Three cave gorillas, out of freaking nowhere. [16:11] <~SU_Tempest> [Lauren] Holy shit, so it IS true! The cave gorilla conspiracy IS a thing! [16:12] <~SU_Tempest> [Lauren] I should have KNOWN that guy who sold me the hallucinogenic mushrooms was on to something! He was WAY too coherent. [16:13] <+Tasia> "Hah! I've got the one in the middle, anyway." [16:13] <+Tasia> @cover [16:13] <MazeBot> A static tactical shield, "Guardian" model. (Health: 60, LDV modifier: -2. AC Eqv: Kevlar-3. Pass-through threshold: 10+ dmg. Pain modifier: x0.75) [16:14] * +Tasia moves for the shield-out-of-nowhere, hoping to get the drop on the gorillas. [16:15] <&Hebizuka> *Roll to take cover now.* [16:15] <+Tasia> @roll 2d6 [16:15] <MazeBot> Tasia: 7 [16:16] <&Hebizuka> *Success. You're now behind cover (Exposed). Your allies both succeed at taking cover as well. Stealth has been preserved, your side has the advantage and is the only one to act this turn.* [16:16] <&Hebizuka> *Turn 1. What is your next move?* [16:17] * +Tasia takes aim at the gorilla in the middle with Whisper. 6 rounds at its head on FA. [16:17] <+Tasia> "Silencers on?" [16:18] <~SU_Tempest> [Telma] Crap, I have no silencer. [16:18] <~SU_Tempest> [Lauren] Well, neither do I. [16:19] <+Tasia> "Yes you do Lauren, I gave you one for the... ah hell. Fire!" [16:19] <~SU_Tempest> *Telma sets up the WA2000, deploys bipod, and aims at gorilla #1's forehead.* [16:20] <~SU_Tempest> *Lauren has a bit less finesse and a bit more brutal fibers in her, and just shoulders her AA-12, dumping five shells into #3's torso.* [16:20] <~SU_Tempest> *Order this turn: You, Telma, Lauren. You may roll first.* [16:20] <+Tasia> @roll 6#2d6 [16:20] <MazeBot> Tasia: 3;10;6;12;11;8 [16:23] <&Hebizuka> *Shots 1-6: 1 miss, 5 hits* [16:26] <&Hebizuka> *You pelt gorilla #2's skull with five rounds of 9x18 Seg.* [16:26] <&Hebizuka> *They seem to cause a lot of damage, but not as much as you thought... Five bleeding holes in the forehead, yes, but the gorilla is... still standing. It looks in visible pain though.* [16:27] <&Hebizuka> *Telma's turn...* [16:27] <&Hebizuka> *Telma has spent the turn deploying her bipod.* [16:28] <&Hebizuka> *Lauren's turn...* [16:29] <&Hebizuka> @roll 5#2d6 [16:29] <MazeBot> Hebizuka: 10;8;11;3;5 [16:29] <&Hebizuka> *Fire mode used was full-auto.* [16:30] <&Hebizuka> *Shots 1-3: Hit, Hit, Hit* [16:30] <&Hebizuka> @bodyaim [16:30] <MazeBot> [UPPER BODY] Torso (Chest, back) [16:30] <&Hebizuka> *Shots 4-5: Miss, Miss* [16:31] <&Hebizuka> *The mercenary manages to hit on her first three shots. She mutters "good enough", especially considering they strike gorilla #3 with tremendous force AND set him on fire. Overkill? Probably.* [16:32] <&Hebizuka> Lauren Smith [AA-12] Gorilla #3 [16:32] <&Hebizuka> *End of Turn 1. Stealth has been rather obviously broken by now.* [16:32] <&Hebizuka> *Turn 2. Telma is now ready to fire. One wounded gorilla and one fresh gorilla left. What is your next move?* [16:33] <+Tasia> Hmm, they don't seem all that weak to headshots. 6 more rounds at #2, full auto again but not bothering to aim at the head. [16:37] <&Hebizuka> *Telma will open fire, just once, on Gorilla #1's head, as she had planned to do.* [16:38] <&Hebizuka> *Lauren points her AA-12 at #2, firing twice (full auto) at the torso.* [16:38] <&Hebizuka> *The surviving gorillas are angry. Very angry.* [16:38] <&Hebizuka> *#1 rushes towards you, to try and punch you - and will go around your cover to do so. #2, despite wounded, will do the same, but at Lauren instead.* [16:39] <&Hebizuka> *Order this turn: Gorilla #2, Gorilla #1, you, Lauren, Telma.* [16:40] <&Hebizuka> *Big fucking monkey #2's turn...* [16:40] <&Hebizuka> @bodyaim [16:40] <MazeBot> [UPPER BODY] Torso (Chest, back) [16:40] <&Hebizuka> @roll 2d6 [16:40] <MazeBot> Hebizuka: 4 [16:40] <&Hebizuka> *The huge monkey swishes a fist in the air but misses your merc ally.* [16:40] <&Hebizuka> *Gorilla #1's turn...* [16:40] <&Hebizuka> @bodyaim [16:40] <MazeBot> [LIMB] Left shoulder [16:40] <&Hebizuka> @roll 2d6 [16:40] <MazeBot> Hebizuka: 7 [16:41] <&Hebizuka> *You on the other hand, receive a huge simian fist on the left shoulder.* [16:41] <&Hebizuka> *Did it hurt?* [16:41] <+Tasia> Probably! [16:42] <&Hebizuka> *The short answer is "No". The long answer is that your kevlar arm pads took most of that hit for you and absorbed it a great deal - your low pain sensitivity did the rest.* [16:42] <&Hebizuka> *You feel only a shove and a mild sting from this hit. Gotta love being augmented.* [16:43] <&Hebizuka> *Your turn. You may roll now.* [16:43] <+Tasia> @roll 6#2d6 [16:43] <MazeBot> Tasia: 4;8;5;6;7;5 [16:44] <&Hebizuka> *Shots 1-6: 3 misses, 3 hits.* [16:46] <&Hebizuka> *THIS time, the segmented rounds seem to have performed -way- better, nearly to the best they possibly could perform. And despite being merely 9x18mm Makarov meeting gorilla flesh and bones, they do the job, and put down the mighty monkey with three more bleeding holes and a serious, irresistible desire to pass out.* [16:47] <&Hebizuka> *Gorilla #2 has lost consciousness* [16:47] <&Hebizuka> *Lauren's turn...* [16:48] <&Hebizuka> *Yes, #2 went down, but will that stop her from firing at it? Naaah.* [16:48] <&Hebizuka> @roll 2#2d6 [16:48] <MazeBot> Hebizuka: 6;10 [16:48] <&Hebizuka> *1 hit, 1 miss.* [16:49] <&Hebizuka> *The one round that hits, ignites and sets #2 on fire too, as if it needed to be on fire considering the slug killed it pretty quickly.* [16:50] <&Hebizuka> Lauren Smith [AA-12] Gorilla #2 [16:50] <&Hebizuka> *Telma's turn...* [16:50] <&Hebizuka> @roll 1#2d6 [16:50] <MazeBot> Hebizuka: 4 [16:54] <&Hebizuka> *A stable bipod, a good gun, good glass, and Match rounds.* [16:54] <&Hebizuka> *What could possibly go wrong? Oh, that's right. The gorilla's skull.* [16:56] <&Hebizuka> Telma [WA2000] Gorilla #1 /H\ [B] [16:57] <+Tasia> "Good shooting!" [16:57] <&Hebizuka> *The big ape's head is adorned with an exit wound that is more "exploded ordnance" than "gunshot wound" in shape and quantity of gore propulsed.* [16:57] <&Hebizuka> *End of fight! (2 turns)* [16:58] * +Tasia checks the area for ore, now that it's secure. [17:00] <&Hebizuka> *Unfortunately, the mineshaft is a dead end, and you find nothing of use, aside from the apes' bodies - two of which are on fire, and the last has a blown out head.* [17:03] * +Tasia shrugs."Shall we try another level?" [17:04] <~SU_Tempest> [Lauren] Lead the way, pardner! [17:04] <~SU_Tempest> [Telma] Sure, if we meet less huge monkeys and more precious ores... [17:05] <+Tasia> "Here's hoping." [17:05] * +Tasia enters the elevator and sends it to level 8. [17:07] <&Hebizuka> *The elevator takes you further downwards, before stopping at Level -8. It's noticeably darker here; there's less lights installed. Despite this, you spot six mineshafts, lettered A to F.* [17:09] <+Tasia> "Hmmm....this might be more promising, if we're lucky." [17:09] * +Tasia approaches shaft A... [17:10] <&Hebizuka> *You find abandoned supplies here... It seems to be food that was left behind.* [17:13] <+Tasia> "Ooh! Useful." [17:13] * +Tasia rummages through the supplies to see what's here. [17:13] <&Hebizuka> [Food] Canned goods - Rice, short-grain, cooked, canned, 700g. 910kcal - Weight: 2 [17:13] <&Hebizuka> [Food] Fast-food - Bag of potato chips. 970kcal [17:13] <&Hebizuka> [Food] Fast-food - Sandwich. 352kcal [17:15] * +Tasia eats the sandwich right now, and offers the rest to her allies. [17:17] <&Hebizuka> *That sandwich was very tasty.* [17:17] <&Hebizuka> *Telma takes the potato chips, and Lauren the rice.* [17:18] <+Tasia> Now to Shaft B. [17:19] <&Hebizuka> *Mineshaft 8B appears to be empty. It's not even dug very far, so it's pretty much immediately a dead end.* [17:19] * +Tasia moves on to C... [17:21] <&Hebizuka> *You see what appears to be someone's abandoned temporary residence, judging by the stack of papers with many notes scribbled on them - most of which are smudged up and unreadable. Among the papers, you also spot an item of interest...* [17:22] * +Tasia gets her curiousity activated and takes a look! [17:22] <&Hebizuka> [Item] A long pistol slide. Made of stainless steel, 39 cm long and contains a very long recoil spring. The left side indicates it's for a .454 caliber weapon. [17:23] * +Tasia takes it, unsure if it's useful - it may be, though. [17:24] <+Tasia> On to shaft D. [17:25] <&Hebizuka> [Pack/Main] 100.02/115 [17:26] <&Hebizuka> *Another dead-end.* [17:27] * +Tasia goes on to the next shaft. [17:27] <&Hebizuka> *An ore patch!* [17:28] <&Hebizuka> *Your guide informs you that it is a very rare diamond ore patch of consistent size!* [17:28] <+Tasia> "Yes!" [17:28] <~SU_Tempest> [Lauren] Okay, okay, hold on, I'm not an expert with this, but THIS, this looks like fucking DIAMONDS. [17:28] * +Tasia readies a block of C4, determined to get all of this. [17:29] <+Tasia> "I think this is what we're looking for!" [17:30] <~SU_Tempest> [Telma] Aw, yeah! EXPLOSIVES! [17:31] <&Hebizuka> *You retrieve 1 small C4 charge from your backpack. Plant it on the ore patch?* [17:31] * +Tasia squishes the C4 onto the stone below the patch of diamonds. "Fire in the hole... let's back up." [17:31] <&Hebizuka> *Detonate when ready!* [17:31] <&Hebizuka> *Your allies scamper away.* [17:31] * +Tasia dashes out of the tunnel and takes shelter around a corner with her allies, then presses the detonator. [17:32] <&Hebizuka> *WHAM* [17:32] <&Hebizuka> *You've detonated the ore patch, leaving no ore patch and 11 extracted bundles of diamond ore.* [17:33] * +Tasia walks in, waving the dust out of her face. [17:33] <+Tasia> "Ahhhh, beautiful!"

[17:36] <+Tasia> Are there any more diamonds left in the wall? [17:37] <&Hebizuka> [Pack/Main] 99.96/115 [17:37] <&Hebizuka> *The entire ore patch has been blasted out.* [17:37] <+Tasia> "Well! That'll be a payday for us. Let's check the last tunnel while we're here, though." [17:39] <~SU_Tempest> [Telma] Alright, lead on! [17:39] * +Tasia heads for the last shaft on the level. [17:40] <&Hebizuka> *You skip shaft E, and head into shaft F...* [17:45] <&Hebizuka> *More ore! You identify it as being a patch of common awaruite, composed of 75% nickel and 25% iron. The patch size appears to be large.* [17:45] <+Tasia> "Eh, this doesn't look too promising... I'll give it a shot anyway." [17:46] * +Tasia will put in 5 turns to see if anything comes out. [17:46] <&Hebizuka> *Roll for mining.* [17:46] <+Tasia> @roll 5#1d5 [17:46] <MazeBot> Tasia: 5;1;3;5;5 [17:47] <&Hebizuka> *You dig out the following:* [17:50] <&Hebizuka> [Item] (Ore) Awaruite, 361 grams - weigh 0.72 [17:50] <&Hebizuka> [Item] (Ore) Awaruite, 539 grams - weigh 1.08 [17:50] <&Hebizuka> [Item] (Ore) Awaruite, 554 grams - weigh 1.11 [17:50] <&Hebizuka> *Total amount of awaruite: 1454 grams, 2.91 units* [17:52] <+Tasia> "I don't think it'll sell for much, but it's still good." [17:52] * +Tasia checks Shaft E to finish the sweep. [17:54] <&Hebizuka> *You come across another ore patch!* [17:55] <&Hebizuka> *It seems to be a patch of rare sperrylite ore, composed of 1/3 platinum and 2/3 arsenic.* [17:56] <&Hebizuka> *The patch appears to be of medium size.* [17:57] <+Tasia> "Oooh! I'll apply another dose of explosives." [17:59] * +Tasia places a C4 charge at the ore deposit and leads the team out, once again taking shelter and readying the detonator. [18:01] <&Hebizuka> *THOOM* [18:02] <&Hebizuka> *You blasted out the whole patch. 10 bundles of sperrylite ore were extracted!* [18:02] * +Tasia re-enters the shaft as the dust clears.

[18:05] <+Tasia> "Arright! Time to cash in, I say." [18:07] <&Hebizuka> [Pack/Main] 110.52/115 [18:07] <~SU_Tempest> [Lauren] Whee! Explosions! Gorillas! Ores! Rock dust asphyxiation! That's the life I've always dreamed of! [18:08] * +Tasia chuckles. "I'll take two of those, anyhow." [18:09] * +Tasia returns to the elevator. "Reay?" [18:09] <+Tasia> Ready, even [18:09] <~SU_Tempest> *Your allies both nod in agreement* [18:10] * +Tasia sends the elevator to level -1. [18:11] <&Hebizuka> *Did you want to leave the mine or to go to the topmost mineshaft level?* [18:11] <+Tasia> To leave the mine. So level 0? [18:12] <&Hebizuka> *Level 0 indeed!* [18:13] * +Tasia goes there, then! [18:13] <&Hebizuka> *You've returned to the mine entrance lobby.* [18:15] <+Tasia> "Ahh, the surface again! Fresh and open air! How I've missed you! Well, not really, but it seems appropriate to say." [18:16] * +Tasia beelines for the Ore Bank. [18:16] <~SU_Tempest> [Office miner] Ah, welcome back. Did it go well? [18:16] <+Tasia> "I'd say so." [18:17] * +Tasia unloads all the ore collected. [18:17] <~SU_Tempest> [Office miner] Let's see what you've got - oh! Damn [18:18] <~SU_Tempest> [Office miner] 3 jade ore, 11 diamond ore, and substantial amounts of awaruite and sperrylite. Let's see... [18:27] <&Hebizuka> [Mine cash-in] [18:27] <&Hebizuka> 3x jade ore => 4x jade [18:27] <&Hebizuka> 11x diamond ore => 34x diamond [18:27] <&Hebizuka> Awaruite, 1.454 kg => 1.0905 kg nickel + 0.3635 kg iron => 43 P$ [18:27] <&Hebizuka> Sperrylite, 4.828 kg => 1.6093 kg platinum + 3.2187 kg arsenic => Platinum bars (6x 250g or 3x 500g) [18:27] <&Hebizuka> *Convert your ore to these items?* [18:28] <+Tasia> Yes. [18:29] <&Hebizuka> *Do you want 6x 250g platinum bars, or 3x 500g ones?* [18:29] <+Tasia> 3 500g ones. [18:29] <~SU_Tempest> [Office miner] Alright, lemme take away your ores. Gimme a moment, I'm gonna fetch a few things in the vault. [18:32] <~SU_Tempest> [Office miner] By the way, you are one lucky first-timer! Those diamonds are all of very good quality! I've seen a few diamond patches before but they were all impure and of rather reduced value. But this stuff? You'd make a few jewelers jealous of you right now! [18:32] <&Hebizuka> [Valuable] Green gem - Jade - Value 65-250 P$ (1d186 +64) - Weight: 0.1 - [Quantity: 4] [18:32] <&Hebizuka> [Valuable] Clear gem - Diamond - Value 350-2000 P$ (1d1651 +349) - Weight: 0.1 - [Quantity: 34] [18:32] <&Hebizuka> [Valuable] Metal - Platinum bar, 500g ingot - Value 3000-12000 P$ (1d9001+2999) - [Quantity: 3] [18:32] <&Hebizuka> [Money] 43 P$ [18:33] <&Hebizuka> *Total weight: 6.8 units not counting the money* [18:34] * +Tasia puts the money in her purse, collects the rest, and heads over to the jeweler's shop. "It was a pleasure doing business, thanks."

[18:36] <+Tasia> "Indeed! So, what can you do with this fresh wealth?" [18:40] <~SU_Tempest> [Jeweler] Let's see here... [18:41] <~SU_Tempest> [Jeweler] I could appraise these jewels and precious metals for you and buy them back from you, if you would like to offload them immediately. Or, you can use some of it to create some custom jewelry, high in value, low in weight... and possibly very fashionable as well. [18:42] <+Tasia> "How about a little of both?" [18:42] <~SU_Tempest> [Jeweler] Up to you, ma'am. [18:42] <+Tasia> "If you could appraise all of these diamonds - and I seem to have one unidentified gem here, too..." [18:43] <+Tasia> "Also three bars of platinum and one of gold." [18:44] <~SU_Tempest> [Jeweler] Certainly. Identification is 50 P$ per item, but I'm sure money is no problem for you by now... [18:46] <&Hebizuka> *The jeweler wants payment before identifying your unknown gem.* [18:47] <+Tasia> "Ah. Here you are." [18:47] * +Tasia pays. [18:47] <&Hebizuka> [Valuable] White gem - Opal - Value 125-450 P$ (1d326 +124) - Weight: 0.1 [18:48] <+Tasia> "Okay, I'll sell that and the jades right back to you." [18:48] <~SU_Tempest> [Jeweler] Very well. Just the time to appraise them... [18:49] <&Hebizuka> SELL [18:49] <&Hebizuka> Opal - 310 P$ [18:49] <&Hebizuka> Jade x4 - 76 + 235 + 135 + 141, total 587 P$ [18:49] <&Hebizuka> TOTAL: 897 P$ [18:51] * +Tasia takes this in cash. [18:51] <&Hebizuka> *Total carried: 1347 P$ in pouch [18:51] <~SU_Tempest> [Jeweler] Now, what is next? [18:52] <+Tasia> "Okay, so if you appraise everything, can you set the best 16 diamonds aside? I'd like to have some things crafted with them." [18:52] <~SU_Tempest> [Jeweler] That's... going to take a bit of time. [18:52] <~SU_Tempest> [Jeweler] I will need to check every single diamond and assign 42 price tags. But if you're sure it's what you want, sit tight... [18:53] <+Tasia> "Okay.... here, take these 16 and just appraise them and the metal bars, then." [18:53] <~SU_Tempest> [Jeweler] Alright, sit tight and wait for me to finish... [18:57] <&Hebizuka> [Appraise] [18:57] <&Hebizuka> 16x Diamonds: 22812 P$ [18:57] <&Hebizuka> > 1943 P$ [18:57] <&Hebizuka> > 1917 P$ [18:57] <&Hebizuka> > 1908 P$ [18:57] <&Hebizuka> > 1874 P$ [18:57] <&Hebizuka> > 1839 P$ [18:57] <&Hebizuka> > 1786 P$ [18:57] <&Hebizuka> > 1723 P$ [18:57] <&Hebizuka> > 1710 P$ [18:57] <&Hebizuka> > 1484 P$ [18:57] <&Hebizuka> > 1467 P$ [18:57] <&Hebizuka> > 1344 P$ [18:57] <&Hebizuka> > 1314 P$ [18:57] <&Hebizuka> > 774 P$ [18:57] <&Hebizuka> > 732 P$ [18:57] <&Hebizuka> > 587 P$ [18:57] <&Hebizuka> > 410 P$ [18:57] <&Hebizuka> 3x 500g platinum bars: 26001 P$ [18:57] <&Hebizuka> > 11940 P$ [18:57] <&Hebizuka> > 9948 P$ [18:57] <&Hebizuka> > 4113 P$ [18:57] <&Hebizuka> 1x 500g gold bar: 1865 P$ [18:57] <&Hebizuka> TOTAL VALUE OF ALL ITEMS: 50678 P$ [18:59] <+Tasia> "Okay. Sooooo. I'd like three platinum collars with 4 diamonds each, and four gold rings with the four lesser diamonds. If you could try to even out the values on the collars that'd be nice, but it's not critical." [19:02] <~SU_Tempest> [Jeweler] Very well. Give me a moment... [19:13] <&Hebizuka> *You have converted 3 platinum bars, 1 gold bar, and 16 diamonds into four valuables of extremely high value and highly desirable materials...* [19:14] <&Hebizuka> [Valuable] Custom - Platinum collar - Gems mounted: 4 diamonds - Value 31594 P$ - Weight: 0.3 [19:14] <&Hebizuka> [Valuable] Custom - Platinum collar - Gems mounted: 4 diamonds - Value 27290 P$ - Weight: 0.3 [19:14] <&Hebizuka> [Valuable] Custom - Platinum collar - Gems mounted: 4 diamonds - Value 15050 P$ - Weight: 0.3 [19:14] <&Hebizuka> [Valuable] Custom - Gold collar - Gems mounted: 4 diamonds - Value 6768 P$ - Weight: 0.3 [19:15] <~SU_Tempest> [Jeweler] And here you go. Dare I say these are some of the absolute finest jewels I've had the occasion to craft for a client. If you wish, you may name these jewels, if you have any fancy names in mind for them, but it's not a requirement. [19:16] * +Tasia takes the lesser platinum collar and the gold one for herself, and hands each ally one of the other platinum collars plus 5 diamonds. [19:18] <+Tasia> That should leave me with 16 diamonds and the P$ 15050 platinum collar and the gold one. [19:18] <+Tasia> "Amazing! Thank you much." [19:23] <~SU_Tempest> *You hand over the two most beautiful and valuable collars, and diamonds, to your allies.* [19:24] <~SU_Tempest> [Telma] Man, if I had guessed I'd go from poor maid to the richest maid since... ever, I'd have signed up way sooner. [19:24] <~SU_Tempest> [Lauren] This is the BEST merc job I've EVER had. Bar none. Except for that time where I had to personally pull out someone's eyeballs. That was heavy metal. [19:24] <~SU_Tempest> *Telma winces* [19:25] <+Tasia> "I'm sure we could arrange something like that again if you're rally feeling it." [19:25] <~SU_Tempest> [Lauren] FOR REAL? Oh man, if you had a dick, I'd probably happily suck it for you about right now! Forget about payment, can I be your employee for LIFE? [19:26] <~SU_Tempest> [Telma] ...You sure are forthcoming with your honesty. [19:26] <+Tasia> "Hey, you two've earned it. If I'm making money with your help, the very least I can do is share it around."
