Proceed?* [17:53] <Marina> Yes please [17:56] <&Hebizuka> *You set down your backpack, grab 15 rounds to refill your M9 magazine with, and a 16th to chamber-load the M9 ahead of time, refilling the weapon to its maximum possible.* [17:57] <&Hebizuka> *9x19mm FMJ remaining: 34 in backpack* [17:58] <Marina> "I wonder... maybe I'm naturally good at this?"

There is heavy machinery and rows of conveyor belts. You spot a packaged box of ammo in the corner...* [18:04] * Marina opens the box and peers inside. [18:04] <&Hebizuka> [Ammunition] Taser cartridges, 4 cartridges - Weight: 0.4 [18:04] <Marina> "What the heck, batteries? Meh." [18:05] * Marina leaves the cartridges in the box.

You can't see a thing!* [18:07] * Marina feels around blindly, looking for an exit. [18:08] <&Hebizuka> *You sense there's only one door in the room. (!mrooms1). You can try searching for items, if you want to.* [18:09] <Marina> !mrooms1 [18:09] <&Hebizuka> [ Marina ] Unique door: 345 - Roomstyle: 206 [18:09] * Marina gropes at the handle and finally gets it open. [18:09] <Marina> "Dang! I need a flashlight." [18:11] * Marina goes through the door [18:12] <&Hebizuka> *The next door can take you to the first mission, or let you continue wandering in the Mazes. Where to?* [18:12] <Marina> Mission! [18:29] <&Hebizuka> *You enter a peculiar room, where the walls are covered ,on one end, with posters and advertisements boasting about the way of life and benefits of various jobs and occupations. On the other hand, a giant "CLASSIFIEDS" board, full to the brim. In one corner, a human working at a nice desk, and a sign signaling what the room is: "Hiring bureau'.* [18:32] <Marina> "Hello? Is anyone here?" [18:32] * Marina looks around, curious. [18:32] <~Tempest> [Hirer] Yes, welcome! [18:33] <Marina> "Ah, hi there! So what's this place?" [18:34] <~Tempest> [Hirer] Oh, so you're new here? This is the hiring bureau, the Mazes' job-finding agency and intermediate, where most Citizens not already members of critical personnel may come to request employment... or employees! [18:35] <~Tempest> [Hirer] Here, we function on the principle of volunteering. People looking for a job sign up as Contractors, and people looking to get something done sign up as Employers. Naturally, nothing stops one to be both, but right now, we have a large amount of employers and too few contractors. [18:35] <~Tempest> [Hirer] Would you be interested to sign up? It's a great opportunity! Plenty of varied work fields and a lot of experience and money for those who work hard. [18:47] <Marina> "Hmm! Well, if it means money, then sure! What sort of job offers are there?" [18:47] <~Tempest> [Hirer] [18:48] <~Tempest> [Hirer] First I will need your full name. [18:48] <~Tempest> [Hirer] If you intend to sign up I need to add you to the database. [18:48] <Marina> "Marina Contreras, that's me!" [18:49] <~Tempest> [Hirer] ...All right. Do you have a permanent residence, a phone number, or any sort of reliable way to contact you? If not, you will have to periodically check back in any hiring bureau by yourself, to see if new jobs are available. [18:51] <Marina> "I don't yet - I might be able to get one later though. I'm new here." [18:52] <~Tempest> [Hirer] That's just fine. One more thing, available jobs are influenced by merit and reputation. If you do well and you do a lot, you will find yourself requested by better-paying people. So work through the small stuff, even if it seems trivial, and you'll make it big in no time flat. Got it? [18:53] <Marina> "Yeppers! So what's open for a newbie?" [18:54] <~Tempest> [Hirer] Lemme check... There is one person requesting an armed bodyguard to take him home. He forgot his gear and needed to use someone else's phone to tell us he wanted to open this job, and he doesn't feel safe going home on his own unarmed. It's a relatively short trip. Interested? [18:56] <Marina> "Okay. I suppose I can do that." [18:57] <&Hebizuka> *Mission start! The hirer invites you to step on the teleporting pad to reach the employer's room. You can make any preparations you desire beforehand.* [18:58] * Marina steps onto the pad, unsure what it is exactly but sensing that she's invited to do so. [18:58] <Marina> "What does this thing do?" [18:59] <~Tempest> [Hirer] It'll take you directly to the employer's location, and we can use it to bring you back once we get the confirmation that the job went well. [19:01] <Marina> "Okay. Let's go!" [19:01] <&Hebizuka> *You're teleported...* [19:02] <&Hebizuka> *...into a warehouse room, where a lithe-looking human male is waiting. He is wearing a sweater, jeans, regular shoes, and a beret, and looks like he has massive black rings under his eyes, as if he was a severe insomniac, or a druggie. Nevertheless, he looks oddly and pleasantly peaceful, completely non-threatening.* [19:03] <Marina> "Whoah. Okay, so you need an escort?" [19:03] <~Tempest> [Citizen] Hey. Name's Brian. I'm the one who needs an escort, yeah... of the armed kind, I mean, yeah. [19:04] <~Tempest> [Brian] And your name is?... [19:05] <Marina> "Marina. Nice to meet ya! So what sort of trouble did you get yourself in?" [19:06] <~Tempest> [Brian] It's dumb really, yeah... I went with a bunch of friends, we were like, partying all night, was really crazy... Kinda forgot all my gear at home, and next thing I know, after... maybe 3 days straight of fun, I woke up here... yeah. Crazy stuff. [19:07] <~Tempest> [Brian] So, since I don't wanna get eaten by the next monster and keep on partying, I wanna get home safe, yeah... get me? [19:07] <Marina> "Yeah, I getcha. Well, I'm armed, and I'm here to guard you. Lead the way!" [19:08] <~Tempest> [Brian] Should be straight ahead then...

[19:12] <&Hebizuka> *A storage area. There's a bunch of large, searchable boxes, 4 in total, which might contain stuff. In addition, you spot a box of ammo on the floor.* [19:13] * Marina looks in the boxes. [19:14] <&Hebizuka> *You ruffle through, and you find the following:* [19:14] <&Hebizuka> [Item] Mobile phone battery - Weight 0.1 - [Battery 4/6] [19:14] <&Hebizuka> [Meds] Syringe - Hydroxocobalamin (HXCB) - Cures Cyanide poisoning. - Weight: 0.1 [19:14] <&Hebizuka> *...And a lot of useless paper trash.* [19:15] <~Tempest> [Brian] Whoa, so you're like, a trash can scavenger, or something? [19:15] * Marina takes these - looks like a common kind of battery, unlike those odd things earlier, and medication would be potentially useful! [19:15] <Marina> "Eh, I'm a little low on supplies, and it's not like anyone was using this stuff!" [19:16] * Marina stuffs them both in her backpack before peering at the ammo [19:16] <&Hebizuka> [Pack/Main] 6.04/40 [19:18] <&Hebizuka> [Ammunition] Box of 12 gauge, buckshot, 10 rounds - [3/10] - Weight: (variable) [19:19] <Marina> "Oooh, rounds for a shotgun?

A creature is lurking about in the room - it appears to be a naga ; half humanoid, half serpent creature.* [19:27] <Marina> "Ah shit, another monster." [19:27] <Marina> "Get to cover, I'll handle this!" [19:28] * Marina spurns the cover herself to avoid failing and wasting time, instead drawing her Beretta and taking aim. [19:28] <Marina> Does the naga look like it's carrying weapons? [19:30] <&Hebizuka> *Brian looks for cover...* [19:30] <&Hebizuka> @cover [19:30] <MazeBot> A wooden crate with metal covers. (Health: 59, LDV modifier: -2. AC Eqv: A2. Pass-through threshold: 8+ dmg.

[19:40] * Marina takes the magazine and ammunition - since it's at least something straightforward and easy to see how it'd be used. [19:41] <&Hebizuka> *Do you want to remove and separate the ammo from the magazine, or keep the ammo loaded?* [19:42] <Marina> Keep the ammo loaded for now. [19:42] <Marina> "Onward and forward."

Feels good to be home. See, if you weren't here, that naga would've torn me apart, yeah... [19:44] <~Tempest> [Brian] You did good , Mariana, yeah...

The hirer is all smiles.* [19:47] <Marina> "Done! There wasn't much trouble, just a snake person that I scared off." [19:47] <~Tempest> [Hirer] Good job, new gal! [19:48] <~Tempest> [Hirer] As per the contract terms, I'm authorized to award you with 200 P$, as well as a good mark on your record. [19:48] * Marina grins. "I'm up for anything else you have available. So what was the pay, anyway? I got ahead of myself and forgot to even ask beforehand." [19:48] <~Tempest> [Hirer] Like I said, 200 P$. [19:48] <Marina> "Ahh! Nice. Can I get that in cash?" [19:49] <~Tempest> [Hirer] I can, or I can let it sit on your hiring bureau credit if you'd rather wait. The money's yours either way.
