Log:Session 123 (Meta, no ontology)

From Mazeworld

[16:31] <&Hebizuka> *Welcome back to the Mazes, Jonah. You have visited 364 rooms. Your next special room is next door (!mrooms1). You are currently in a mostly healthy state, suffering from slight pain and feeling satiated, with otherwise no major problems to note. Your allies are for the most part all healthy, with Carolyn still afflicted with a broken hand. !mrooms1 to resume.* [16:31] <Jonah> Okay, first things first. [16:32] * Jonah double checks the ammo in her guns, before taking the Lorazepam and the Cyanide syringes out of her backpack and somewhere more useful - her vest. [16:33] <&Hebizuka> *Brass checking. "Dragonbane": [5+1/5, SAP]. Armsel Protecta: [12/12, Buck], Beretta M9: [15+1/15, FMJ], Stechkin APS: [14+1/20, +P].* [16:34] <&Hebizuka> *Set down backpack (1 turn). Moved 1x Lorazepam and 1x Cyanide from Pack/Main to Vest/Main.* [16:34] <&Hebizuka> [Vest/Main] 6.85/7 [16:34] <&Hebizuka> [Pack/Main] 59.48/60 [16:35] <Jonah> *Is there also an M67 grenade in my vest?* [16:36] <&Hebizuka> *You're indeed carrying 1 spare M67 grenade in Vest/Main.* [16:36] <Jonah> *Let's equip that, then.) [16:36] <Jonah> * [16:37] <Jonah> *And 1 from my spare weapons as well.* [16:38] <&Hebizuka> *You're out of M67 grenades in the backpack.* [16:39] <&Hebizuka> *You still have 3 left in Vest/Weapons ; take one out from there?.* [16:39] <Jonah> *Yes.* [16:39] <&Hebizuka> [Vest/Weapons] 4/6 [16:39] <&Hebizuka> *Class 4 weapons equipped: 1x AN/M14, 3x M67* [16:40] <Jonah> Ayako, Raider - either of you want these last two grenades? Not like they'll do any good here, I can only throw so many. [16:41] <~Tempest> [Carolyn] I still have a full stock. [16:42] <~Tempest> *Raider rearranges his equipment to make space, and signals he can carry one extra.* [16:42] <~Tempest> *Ayako has no grenades and wouldn't mind having one!* [16:43] * Jonah tosses one each to both. The ess weight on her shoulders, the better. [16:45] <&Hebizuka> [Vest/Weapons] 0/6 (emptied) [16:45] <&Hebizuka> *Raider and Ayako each nab one of your last M67s.* [16:46] <Jonah> !mrooms1 [16:46] <&Hebizuka> [ Jonah ] Unique door: 1965 - Roomstyle: 574 [16:47] <Jonah> Time to get going, I guess. Onwards! [16:52] <&Hebizuka> *You and the party makes it into the lobby of a mine.* [16:53] <&Hebizuka> *You spot several points of interest: the information office, a mining supplies shop, a jewelry store, the mining access (an elevator, essentially), and the doors out.* [16:54] <Jonah> Hmmm. I /do/ have a gem and a platinum bar. I could make an engagement ring. [16:54] <Jonah> Jewelry shop first, then. And do you guys particularly want to mine? [16:55] <~Tempest> [Raider] Up to you. I hear the mines are critter-infested. [16:55] <~Tempest> [Carolyn] I'm not particularly a fan of mining... [16:55] <~Tempest> [Ayako] Mines? Best place to have hidden sex. Ain't nobody going to suspect you doing THAT in there! And think of all the "going deep" jokes! [16:56] <~Tempest> *Carolyn elbows the youkai.* [16:57] <~Tempest> [Ayako] I reckon it's a wee bit dangerous. [16:58] <Jonah> That's 2 against 1, with Raider abstaining. And Carolyn, feel free to do that whenever you want, but she'll probably grow to like it. [16:58] <Jonah> No mining for us today. Not with a broken hand at any rate. [16:58] <~Tempest> [Carolyn] Yeah, it's probably not a good plan. [17:01] <Jonah> *While we're walking to the jewelry shop, let's turn on the SIE. Carolyn's been having a rough time of things; how's her morale?* [17:05] <&Hebizuka> [SIE] Subject: Carolyn Knight || Morale: Stable (unchanged) [17:05] <~Tempest> *The jewelry store owner greets you.* [17:05] <~Tempest> [Jeweler] Greetings. Be forewarned, I don't do group discounts. How may I help you? [17:09] <Jonah> I have this gem I was hoping you could appraise. Is that a thing you can do? [17:09] * Jonah plops down her backpack and rummages it out to show it to the shopkeep. [17:11] <~Tempest> [Jeweler] White gem huh? Lemme take a look. [17:12] <~Tempest> [Jeweler] Yeah, I can tell you what it is, for 50 P$. [17:12] * Jonah hands the 50 P$ over. The costs of business. [17:13] <&Hebizuka> *Gem identified and appraised.* [17:13] <&Hebizuka> [Valuable] White gem - Big pearl - Value 51 P$ - Weight: 0.1 [17:14] <~Tempest> [Jeweler] Aww. You've made a profit! [/sarcastic tone] [17:15] <Jonah> Hey, pearl rings aren't bad at all, right Carolyn? [17:16] <~Tempest> [Carolyn] I like pearls, they're rather pretty. [17:16] <Jonah> Mhmm. So, how do I make this into a ring, shopkeep? [17:16] * Jonah has to desperately bite her tngue to resist a crack about pearl necklaces. [17:17] <~Tempest> [Jeweler] Anything else? [17:19] <Jonah> Well, I mean - what do you sell? Do you have ring bands, or something? [17:20] <~Tempest> [Jeweler] Technically speaking I -make- them, and offer the service for free, so long as you have your own metal ingots. If you don't, I have some for sale. [17:21] <Jonah> Platinum fine with you, Carolyn? [17:21] <~Tempest> [Jeweler] I can also carve bracelets and collars out of them, and I can also offer to mount gems on them to increase your jewels' individual value. Great gifts for some, great investment material for others. Custom-made valuables are very popular. [17:21] <~Tempest> [Carolyn] Sure, I guess. [17:22] * Jonah hands the pearl and the platinum bar right on over. [17:23] <Jonah> Here you go. A ring would do it - unless carolyn here has something else in mind. [17:30] <~Tempest> [Jeweler] Okay, with this 250g bar, I can cut up to 2 rings out. If you have a second gem to mount it on, feel free to show me. Otherwise I can sell you one of my finest. [17:30] <~Tempest> [Jeweler] Let me first appraise it... [17:31] <&Hebizuka> *Platinum bar, 250g: Appraised at 1911 P$* [17:36] <Jonah> What's the next step, then? [17:37] <~Tempest> [Jeweler] Well, it's possible to have gemless rings, that's perfectly fine. They'll just have less value. So, rings out of this bar. You want me to mount the pearl on one of them? Is it fine to have the second one gemless, or did you have another em? [17:40] <Jonah> Can't you leave a space for a gem in the second ring? So if I find another gem, I can just head to another jeweler to get it inserted. [17:40] <~Tempest> [Jeweler] Gemless rings can have one mounted later if you want, so that's fine. [17:41] <Jonah> Then have at. [17:42] <&Hebizuka> *The jeweler takes your platinum bar and your pearl away, then disappears into his backroom to cut the metal into pretty rings, and mount one of them with your pearl...* [17:45] <&Hebizuka> [Valuable] Custom - Platinum ring - Gems mounted: Big pearl - Value 648 P$ - Weight: 0.1 [17:45] <&Hebizuka> [Valuable] Custom - Platinum ring - Gems mounted: None - Value 597 P$ - Weight: 0.1 [17:45] <~Tempest> [Jeweler] Here you go. When you find a matching pearl for the other ring, they'll make a really charming pair of engagement rings. [17:48] * Jonah brings both of them to the artificial light, letting them gleam and sparkle for all to see. [17:49] <&Hebizuka> *The rings are tastefully cut and shiny, both very fine pieces of craftsmanship.* [17:49] * Jonah can't hep but smile, and as she pockets the gemless ring into her vest, she hands the other to Carolyn. [17:49] <Jonah> For you. I - I hope you like it. [17:49] <~Tempest> [Carolyn] It's for me? Really? [17:50] <&Hebizuka> *Carolyn accepts the gift, and that seems to lift her spirits big time.* [17:51] <Jonah> Why wouldn't it be? I love you, you big dork. [17:51] <~Tempest> [Carolyn] You sure went to great lengths to show it to me. Thank you so much, Jonah. [17:51] <~Tempest> *She goes to hug you real tight. Even Raider goes "Aww."* [17:52] * Jonah hugs her right back, keeping her arms tastefully /above/ the shrine maiden's plump bottom, before stealing away another kiss on the cheek. [17:52] <Jonah> !mrooms3 [17:52] <&Hebizuka> [ Jonah ] Left door: 3002 - Front door: 937 - Right door: 6982 - Roomstyle: 59 [17:52] <~Tempest> [Jeweler] Thank you for shopping at the Miner's Jewel Emporium. Please come back again! [17:53] <Jonah> How's the front door sound, Carolyn? [17:56] <~Tempest> [Carolyn] As usual, then. [17:57] <&Hebizuka> *Next special room at the 375th* [17:57] <&Hebizuka> *Your torso has completely healed.* [17:58] <&Hebizuka> *A washitsu; the bedroom of a youkai. The local resident isn't home, and there's some searchable furniture here. You also spot what seems to be load-bearing equipment on the futon.* [18:00] * Jonah ransacks both the furniture and the LBE, as usual. [18:00] <Jonah> *How is Carolyn's morale?* [18:00] <&Hebizuka> *The SIE indicates Carolyn's morale increased to Good.* [18:01] <&Hebizuka> *You find the following items:* [18:01] <&Hebizuka> [Meds] Syringe - Unidentified - Weight: 0.1 [18:01] <&Hebizuka> [Meds] Vial - Unidentified - Weight: 0.1 [18:01] <&Hebizuka> [LBE] (Tactical vest) RM22SF: Capacity 2 units + Ammo (6 mags only, max tier: Large) + Spare weapon (8x C4 wpn only, max wgt 18) [18:05] * Jonah tosses both the meds into her backpack with no real recognition that she's steaing from a possibly innocent person. [18:05] <Jonah> !mrooms3 [18:05] <&Hebizuka> [ Jonah ] Left door: 5899 - Front door: 1667 - Right door: 2367 - Roomstyle: 96 [18:05] <Jonah> Front door. [18:06] <&Hebizuka> [Pack/Main] 59.68/60 [18:09] <&Hebizuka> *A break room, with all the modern comfort one can expect; a television, a radio, tables and chairs, a comfortable couch, and a small selection of books and tabletop games. The room appears to be otherwise empty.* [18:10] <Jonah> @whatsontv [18:10] <MazeBot> [Reality show] Maid Academy [18:11] <Jonah> @radio [18:11] <MazeBot> [The news] News broadcast with youkai hosts [18:11] <Jonah> If you guys wanna rest, now's the time. Otherwise, we can keep on going. [18:11] <~Tempest> [Ayako] Man, Maid Academy is bullshit. These judges are clearly corrupt. [18:12] <~Tempest> [Carolyn] I'm good, besides my hand. [18:14] <Jonah> Corrupt? What do you mean? [18:15] * Jonah takes a glance on the TV. How depraved is it? [18:17] <~Tempest> *A competitive reality show where four judges rate maids on various arbitrary criteria.* [18:17] <~Tempest> *The winner of the competition is promised 10.000 P$ and guaranteed employment by the sponsor of the month.* [18:18] <~Tempest> *Depravity rating: Not Very Much* [18:20] <Jonah> !mrooms3 [18:20] <&Hebizuka> [ Jonah ] Left door: 2124 - Front door: 3446 - Right door: 5713 - Roomstyle: 409 [18:21] <Jonah> Honestly, Ayako, you could probably win that in a heartbeat by just fucking everyone into submission. [18:21] * Jonah shuts both the TV and the radio off before heading through the front door. [18:23] <~Tempest> [Ayako] I dunno, I'd win that by killing all the other participants instead. [18:24] <Jonah> Yeah, but then you wouldn't get the prize money, which would be a real shame after all that effort. [18:25] <~Tempest> [Ayako] Fuck the money, I won! [18:26] <&Hebizuka> *You go up a flight of stairs, reaching a laboratory room. It's squeaky clean and devoid of any runaway genetic experiments. There are usable sinks in the room. The room seems to be otherwise empty, again.* [18:27] <Jonah> Seriously? No chemical vials, mysterious potions, nothing? [18:27] * Jonah searches through the drawers just in case. [18:27] <&Hebizuka> *Nothing of the sort that can be reached. It's a lab, but there's none of the lab toys.* [18:27] <&Hebizuka> *And the drawers are all empty.* [18:27] <Jonah> MAzeworld's a shithole. [18:27] <Jonah> !mrooms3 [18:27] <&Hebizuka> [ Jonah ] Left door: 1453 - Front door: 2965 - Right door: 3485 - Roomstyle: 331 [18:27] <Jonah> Let's keep going in a completely straight line. [18:27] <~Tempest> [Raider] You're just saying that because you can't find stuff to loot. [18:28] <Jonah> I'm saying that because /Mazeworld gave me a penis/ that I can't remove without throwing away a good chunk of money. [18:28] <~Tempest> [Ayako] It ain't so bad! Least you can aim when you gotta pee. [18:28] <~Tempest> [Carolyn] Will you guys stop talking about that? [18:30] <&Hebizuka> *You go up another flight of stairs, then pass a door leading to an outside area. Daytime beach. You end up on a large shore, with bright sunny sky. There's a group of creatures stumbling about in front of you; it appears to be 2 cyclopses, each of them carrying what seems to be a bundle of spears.* [18:30] <Jonah> Oh fuck these guys forever. [18:30] <Jonah> @cover [18:30] <MazeBot> A fridge. (Health: 78, LDV modifier: -2. AC Eqv: Kevlar-3. Pass-through threshold: 10+ dmg. Pain modifier: x0.75) [18:31] <&Hebizuka> *What in the world is a -fridge- doing in the middle of a beach?* [18:31] <&Hebizuka> *No matter; it's your piece of cover now.* [18:31] <Jonah> *You gotta keep the drinks cold /somehow.* [18:32] <&Hebizuka> *You may roll to take cover.* [18:32] <Jonah> @roll 2d6 [18:32] <MazeBot> Jonah: 8 [18:32] <&Hebizuka> *Allies take cover...* [18:32] <&Hebizuka> @roll 3#2d6 [18:32] <MazeBot> Hebizuka: 12;7;9 [18:32] <&Hebizuka> *Success for the whole party. You've managed to maintain stealth ,and you may attack for the first turn without retaliation.* [18:32] <&Hebizuka> *Turn 1. What's your next move?* [18:33] <Jonah> *Cyclops 1, Protecta, 4 shots to the head.* [18:36] <&Hebizuka> *Carolyn draws her M4, and goes for a single shot to the head of the second Cyclops, making full use of her 4x optic.* [18:36] <&Hebizuka> *Raider draws his M24, also aiming down his 9x optic for a single shot to #2's head, in case Carolyn misses.* [18:36] <&Hebizuka> *Ayako sits down and does nothing.* [18:37] <&Hebizuka> *Order this turn: Carolyn, You, Raider. Carolyn's turn...* [18:37] <&Hebizuka> @roll 1#2d6 [18:37] <MazeBot> Hebizuka: 6 [18:37] <&Hebizuka> *Miss!* [18:38] <&Hebizuka> *Your turn. You may roll now. Carolyn curses her hand.* [18:38] <Jonah> @roll 4#2d6 [18:38] <MazeBot> Jonah: 8;10;11;7 [18:39] <&Hebizuka> *Score -1 due to aiming at the head.* [18:40] <&Hebizuka> *Shots 1-4: Hit (4 pel), Hit (8 pel), Hit (4 pel), Hit (3 pel)* [18:40] <&Hebizuka> *Total: 4/4 hits* [18:41] <&Hebizuka> *Cyclops #1's head has been vaporized.* [18:41] <&Hebizuka> Jonah [Protecta] Cyclops /H\ [B] [18:41] <&Hebizuka> *Raider's turn...* [18:41] <&Hebizuka> @roll 1#2d6 [18:41] <MazeBot> Hebizuka: 11 [18:41] <&Hebizuka> *Hit!* [18:42] <&Hebizuka> Raider [Remington M24] Cyclops /H\ [B] [18:42] <&Hebizuka> *End of fight! (1 turn)* [18:42] <~Tempest> [Raider] Easy. [18:43] <&Hebizuka> *The dead cyclopses have dropped items.* [18:43] <Jonah> Well. It's a lot of meat. Wanna hack it up and sell it? [18:44] * Jonah sits down to reload the Protecta - buckshot from her bag - before checking out A: The fridge, and B: the bodies. [18:45] <&Hebizuka> *You take 3 turns to set down the backpack and refill your Protecta with 4 buckshot shells.* [18:46] <&Hebizuka> *Protecta: [12/12 Buck]* [18:46] <&Hebizuka> [Pack/Main] 59.48/60 [18:46] <&Hebizuka> *The fridge only contains sand. Nothing of use inside.* [18:46] <&Hebizuka> *You check the dead cyclopses and find this:* [18:46] <&Hebizuka> [Weapon] Class 5 Long: Roman pilum - Piercing. Weight: 22 - [Quantity: 12] [18:47] <Jonah> I've never been one for spears. Either of you want to carry one, sell it for later? [18:48] <~Tempest> [Carolyn] Fuck that, way too heavy. [18:49] <Jonah> That's what I thought. Alright, let's start butchering these guys, we'll call in the deli again. [18:50] <&Hebizuka> *Use your KA-BAR to butcher these two creatures?* [18:51] <Jonah> *Yes.* [18:52] <&Hebizuka> *You spend 2 turns to gut, hack, slash, and cut to pieces the evil monsters. There are now two bloodied piles of bones, and the following items:* [18:54] <&Hebizuka> [Food] Meat - Raw game meat, cyclops - 126+1d126 kcal - 25% Nausea (3 turns) - [Quantity: 42] [18:56] <~Tempest> [Raider] Well... That's some meat alright. [18:56] <~Tempest> [Raider] I bet chefs would pay good money for this. [18:56] <Jonah> That's the plan. [18:56] * Jonah picks up her phone and dials delivery - er, the deli. [18:58] <&Hebizuka> *You dial 5-GET-FOOD...* [19:00] <&Hebizuka> [Phone] You have reached the unified food service number. We may locate the nearest delicatessen or restaurant from your location. If you desire, we may also send a delicatessen to your current location, or have restaurant food delivered to you. Please beware that ordering restaurant food is accompanied with a price markup. [19:00] <&Hebizuka> *>Locate deli >Locate restaurant >Call deli >Order restaurant food* [19:01] <Jonah> *Call deli.* [19:01] <&Hebizuka> *A delicatessen will arrive shortly. Please wait in your current area. Be considerate and do not leave early.* [19:01] <&Hebizuka> [Battery remaining: 1/6] [19:02] <~Tempest> [Raider] All we gotta do is wait now, huh? [19:04] <Jonah> Pretty much. [19:04] <Jonah> Want to swim for a bit, Raider? Bet I'm faster than you. [19:04] <~Tempest> [Raider] Wanna bet on that? I might be old but I'm still good. [19:05] <Jonah> Loser sucks the winner's cock? [19:05] <~Tempest> [Raider] Let's not get ahead of ourselves. [19:06] <&Hebizuka> *Wait now?* [19:06] <Jonah> Mmmm. Let's make it 50 P$. And winner gets a round with Ayako, if she's up for it. [19:06] <Jonah> *Wait, I suppose!* [19:07] <~Tempest> [Ayako] Hey, don't pass me around! I haven't given my consent! [19:07] <&Hebizuka> *While you wait, the team goes swimming, at the exception of Carolyn who stays to look out for the shop owner. Roll 2d6.* [19:07] <Jonah> I /did/ say if you're up for it! [19:07] <Jonah> @roll 2d6 [19:07] <MazeBot> Jonah: 10 [19:08] <&Hebizuka> *From one of the doors, the requested food merchant makes an entrance in the beach area.* [19:10] <Jonah> Oh, he's here! [19:10] <&Hebizuka> *From another door, a dude dressed like a ninja comes in, with a strange belt and an item in the hands. Looking closer, you notice it's C4.* [19:10] * Jonah swims back up to - oh fuck me. [19:11] <~Tempest> [Kamikaze] ALOHA SNACKBAR [19:11] <~Tempest> [Merch] For FUCK'S sake, that's the third trap this week! [19:13] <&Hebizuka> *The food merchant draws a pistol, and the Kamikaze brandishes his C4 charge.* [19:13] <&Hebizuka> *For all intents and purposes, it's a fight about to start.* [19:14] * Jonah stays right where she is, in the water - if the C4 carrying dude hasn't actually spotted her, so much the better. [19:14] <&Hebizuka> *All of your equipment ,as well as Raider's and Ayako's, are on the sand with Carolyn!* [19:15] <&Hebizuka> *To recap, you and your party are on Side A, with everyone except Carolyn being currently naked and in the water. All naked people's gear are beside Carolyn, on the ground.* [19:15] <&Hebizuka> *The merchant is on Side B, alone.* [19:15] <&Hebizuka> *Aloha Snackbar is on Side C, alone as well.* [19:15] <&Hebizuka> *Turn 1. What is your next move?* [19:16] <~Tempest> [Raider] There are times where I hate my job. [19:17] <&Hebizuka> *As a reminder, the fridge is on Side A.* [19:18] * Jonah has to resist the deep urge to drown herself as she rushes into cover to grap the machine pistol. [19:18] <&Hebizuka> *Raider and Ayako will both run to cover as well to try and get some of their gear.* [19:19] <&Hebizuka> *Roll to take cover.* [19:19] <Jonah> @roll 2d6 [19:19] <MazeBot> Jonah: 5 [19:20] <Jonah> *Carolyn still has her guns, right? So she can still be shooting.* [19:20] <&Hebizuka> *Ally rolls... excluding Carolyn who is still behind cover.* [19:20] <&Hebizuka> @roll 2#2d6 [19:20] <MazeBot> Hebizuka: 4;7 [19:20] <&Hebizuka> *Raider fails, Ayako succeeds.* [19:20] <&Hebizuka> *Neither you nor Raider will act this turn. Ayako can, and so can Carolyn.* [19:26] <&Hebizuka> *Ayako spends her turn to reach for one of her guns; specifically her AK-105.* [19:26] <&Hebizuka> *Ayako reunited with her rifle but her turn is over.* [19:26] <&Hebizuka> *Carolyn draws her S&W 686 to aim at the kamikaze, and simply attempts emptying her cylinder, all 6 shots, into him, aiming at the torso.* [19:27] <&Hebizuka> * [19:27] <&Hebizuka> *Shopkeep draws a pistol and aims at the kamikaze, firing five shots without aiming much.* [19:29] <&Hebizuka> *Kamikaze will be priming the C4 charge ; essentially "planting" it on himself then replacing it in his belt. He yells "Aloha snackbar" again.* [19:29] <&Hebizuka> *Order this turn: Kamikaze, Merch, Carolyn.* [19:29] <&Hebizuka> *The kamikaze has planted an explosive on himself.* [19:30] <&Hebizuka> *Merch's turn...* [19:30] <&Hebizuka> @bodyaim [19:30] <MazeBot> [UPPER BODY] Torso (Chest, back) [19:30] <&Hebizuka> @roll 5#2d6 [19:30] <MazeBot> Hebizuka: 3;6;5;7;6 [19:31] <&Hebizuka> *Shots 1-5: 1 hit, 4 misses.* [19:34] <&Hebizuka> *A single hit only. The bullet causes very minimal damage; very little apparent pain and a mere singular open wound.* [19:34] <&Hebizuka> *Carolyn's turn...* [19:35] <&Hebizuka> @roll 6#2d6 [19:35] <MazeBot> Hebizuka: 12;6;12;11;8;7 [19:36] <&Hebizuka> *Shots 1-5: 4 hits (including 2 critical hits), 1 miss* [19:36] <&Hebizuka> *Shot 6: Miss* [19:38] <&Hebizuka> *4 solid hits, including two perfectly landed shots in the heart area.* [19:41] <&Hebizuka> *The high-powered .357 hollow points expand and cause tremendous damage to the kamikaze's body. Had he somehow survived, he would've been paralyzed by the sheer hydrostatic shock. Instead, he is promptly killed without being given so much as a chance!* [19:41] <&Hebizuka> Carolyn [S&W 686] Kamikaze [B] [19:41] <Jonah> Carolyn I /fucking/ love you oh my god marry me. [19:41] <&Hebizuka> *End of Turn 1.* [19:42] <&Hebizuka> *Turn 2...* [19:42] <~Tempest> [Merch] Which one of you fuckers had the funny idea of luring me in here? Because this kamikaze shit is NOT funny! [19:42] <&Hebizuka> *He points his pistol in your general direction, without aiming at anyone in particular* [19:43] <Jonah> Do you see the meat on the ground, right over there? And the Cyclops corpses? I called you because I wanted to sell my game meat, that crazy psychopath was a fucking coincidence! [19:43] <Jonah> *SIE SIE GO GO GO* [19:44] <&Hebizuka> *What do you want to know about the food merchant?* [19:45] <Jonah> *Everything.* [19:45] <Jonah> *Personality and persuasive values are most important.* [19:48] <&Hebizuka> [SIE] Name: Diana Dodge || Hostility: Hostile (sharply decreased). Motive: Friendly. Morale: Poor (sharply decreased). || Persuasion level: Low [19:49] <~Tempest> [Merch] So you're saying that wasn't intentional? That it was just bad luck? [Persuasion increased sharply, now High. Needs to be further convinced though.] [19:50] <Jonah> Yes, absolutely! Hell, three of us are /completely naked and wet/ from swimming! If this was a trap, we'd at least be armored! [19:51] <~Tempest> [Merch] I suppose that makes sense... [Persuasion is now Very High. You seem to have successfully convinced this person.] [19:51] <&Hebizuka> *End of fight! (2 turns). The merchant lowers and reholsters her weapon.* [19:53] <&Hebizuka> *You're free to dress up again.* [19:53] <Jonah> So, uh. While I'd love to begin showing off my meat, I don't really wanna show off my meat. Give us a second. [19:55] <&Hebizuka> *You and your party dresses up again.* [19:55] <&Hebizuka> *You're now in a presentable state again.* [19:55] <Jonah> Right. [19:55] <Jonah> Okay, Carolyn. [19:55] <Jonah> I love you. [19:55] <Jonah> I love you /so much holy shit./ [19:55] <~Tempest> [Carolyn] Cause I just saved our lives? Cmon. [19:56] <Jonah> What can I say? Not dying really makes the heart grow fonder. [19:56] <Jonah> Next - [19:56] <Jonah> Miss, here's my 42 slices of delicious meat. Have at. [19:57] <~Tempest> [Carolyn] Yes, we called you to sell some fresh raw meat [19:58] <~Tempest> [Merch] Okay, okay okay. Let's do business. Yes. That'll take my mind off of this attack. [19:59] <~Tempest> [Merch] 42 pieces of raw meat. Nice. [20:00] <~Tempest> [Merch] I'll buy that for 420 P$. That fine? [20:00] <Jonah> After business is done, maybe we can all just - relax on the beach. We can buy drinks from you and everything, and Raider can stay on guard for us. Get the jitters out, you know? [20:00] <~Tempest> [Merch] Yknow what? Drinks are on the house. You just saved my ass, it's the least I can do. I just hope I have anything to drink at all. [20:00] <Jonah> And yeah, that's compleyely fine. Can I take that in credit? [20:00] <Jonah> Haha, alright then. [20:01] <~Tempest> [Merch] Yeah sure. What's your name? [20:01] <&Hebizuka> *Trading 42 pieces of raw cyclops meat for 420 P$ of delicatessen credit.* [20:01] <Jonah> I'm Jonah. These people here are Carolyn, Ayako, and Raider. All awesome. And yourself? [20:02] <~Tempest> [Merch] Diana Dodge, owner of DDD - Diana Dodge's Delicatessen. Stop smirking, it's not a breast joke! [20:04] * Jonah very obviously and jokingly examines her breasts, using the SIE to get the real down and dirty. [20:05] <Jonah> I'm sorry, but I fancy myself as a ... conniseour of breasts. Wanna make a little bet? I can guess your real size no problem. [20:06] <~Tempest> *The merchant raises an eyebrow.* [20:06] <~Tempest> [Merch] There's a catch, isn't it. [20:09] <Jonah> Not really. If I'm right, you give me your phone number. We can bond over drinks, maybe see if this leads to anywhere interesting, it'll be great. If I lose, well... I give you P$ 420 to pay you back for the meat, and you can do whatever you want with me 'till you're satisfied. [20:09] <Jonah> That's how confident I am. [20:09] <&Hebizuka> [SIE] Subject: Diana Dodge. Code: 2-9-2 2-4-2-2-6-5-6 || Age: 27. Ethnicity: Islander. Height: 155cm. Weight: 61kg. Constitution: Athletic. Very short, dark brown hair, hazel eyes. Breast size: 38AA. [20:11] <~Tempest> [Merch] Huh. Okay, I guess. Try me. [20:12] * Jonah makes a show and dance of examining Diana without ever touching her, walking around to view all her proportions while humming and hawwing all the while. It's only once Jonah's done two full rotations that she plays up the smirk on her face. [20:13] <Jonah> 38AA. [20:13] <~Tempest> [Merch] Spot-on! How'd you guess? [20:14] <Jonah> *What is Diana wearing?* [20:15] <Jonah> I used to be a nurse before I changed careers, you know? Once you've physically examined every woman in the world, it's pretty easy to compare and contrast. Plus, what you're wearing helps. [20:16] <Jonah> Wanna go double or nothing? This is my favorite party trick - I can do years and height, too. Weight's a bit trickier though, with all the gear. [20:16] <~Tempest> [Merch] I'll pass, thanks. Am already giving you a few favors [20:17] <Jonah> Oh, alright. Then let's enjoy ourselves, Diana. I have some paper for your number, but we can get to that later. [20:17] <Jonah> *Time to see if she has any drinks!* [20:21] <~Tempest> [Merch] [20:21] <~Tempest> [Merch] My number's 1-324-2202 [20:22] <~Tempest> [Merch] Don't bug me too much, okay? [20:23] <Jonah> I promise. I'll just refer all my friends to buy from you instead. [20:24] <~Tempest> [Merch] Don't worry, I don't have problems to get clients! Everybody needs food, after all. Anyway, let's check out if I have drinks...

Sake on the beach isn't bad at all. [20:29] <Jonah> And enough pie for everyone, if we're feeling peckish. How much for those, Diana? [20:30] <~Tempest> [Merch] Not the alcohol, please, it sells nicely and I'd rather save it for paying clients. I can spare the lemonade though. [20:31] <~Tempest> [Merch] And the pie slices are 20 P$ apiece. [20:32] <Jonah> Mmm. How much for the alcohol, then? After a thing like that, you could probably use a drink. [20:32] * Jonah buys five slices of pie, in any case, for a cool 100 P$, and helps herself to five cans of lemonade. [20:35] <~Tempest> [Merch] Each bottle of sake is 90 P$. But it sells like hotcakes on good days. Youkai love that stuff. [20:36] <Jonah> Haha. That /is/ pricy. If it's your kind of drink, I'll foot the bill for a lady as gorgeous as you. You could use a good day yourself. [20:36] <~Tempest> [Merch] Not on the job, friend. But thanks for the offer. [20:39] <Jonah> Oh, alright. [20:39] * Jonah leaves the lemonade and the fifth slice for her, before handing out the goodies for everyone else. [20:39] <Jonah> *The fifth lemonade, rather.* [20:39] <Jonah> *Might we Wait and relax as we eat?* [20:43] <&Hebizuka> *Merchant takes 100 P$ away from the credit you made from the meat.* [20:43] <&Hebizuka> *Delicatessen credit: 1020 P$* [20:44] <Jonah> *ACTUALLY WAIT* [20:44] <Jonah> *How full am I feeling?* [20:45] <&Hebizuka> *You acquired 5 lemonades and 5 slices of pie.

[20:53] <Jonah> Thanks for everything, Diana. We owe you one.

Unless you wanna tag along, or do something before I gallop off into the sunset? [21:00] <~Tempest> [Merch] Nah, I can't come with you. Still got clients to serve. Gimme a call if you wanna to talk, like tomorrow or something. [21:00] <~Tempest> [Merch] You guys stay safe, alright? [21:02] <Jonah> You too! Keep near the doors so you don't run into a fourth trap this week. [21:02] <Jonah> Front door it is, guys. That ended well, all things considered. [21:08] <&Hebizuka> *A regular, featureless room. You see a file abandoned on the floor...* [21:09] <Jonah> What do we have here?

[21:18] * Jonah tosses the file in her pack, alongside everything else. She'll skim through it later. [21:19] <&Hebizuka> *It's hard to read and complicated. Maybe more competent people can figure it out?* [21:19] <&Hebizuka> *Not enough space in backpack [59.48/60]* [21:19] <&Hebizuka> *Do you want to consume or throw something away?* [21:21] * Jonah tosses it in her belt, then.
