From Mazeworld

[17:51] <&Hebizuka> *You have a bit of trouble understanding what happened... The last thing you remember, you're pretty sure you died, but here you are, slowly waking up from what seemed like a very long nap. The first thing you notice is that you're waking up in a hospital bedroom. It doesn't look like home or anywhere familiar.* [17:52] <&Hebizuka> *The next thing you notice is that you're naked and there's nothing that belongs - or used to belong - to you here. And just as you make note of that, a television turns on automatically on the end of the room, revealing the head of a human male. Lab coat, thick frame glasses, bald head ; he looks like a medic.* [17:52] <~Tempest> [Medic] Hello, can you hear me? [17:54] <Suzume> Yes. [17:55] <~Tempest> [Medic] Our sensors here show that you've woken up, and your vital signs seem stable... I wanted to make sure it was right. [17:56] <Suzume> Y-Yes. That's right. [17:56] <~Tempest> [Medic] You must be disoriented right now, but I have to ask you some questions. Your answers will help me determine if you're in good health. Only after this is dealt with, I'll try to answer any questions YOU may have... Understood? [17:56] <Suzume> I understand. [17:57] <~Tempest> [Medic] Good. Let's start with the basics... What is your name? [17:58] <Suzume> Suzume. [17:58] <~Tempest> [Medic] Just Suzume? No family name? [17:58] <Suzume> Uhh no. [17:59] <&Hebizuka> *A few seconds of silence.* [18:00] <~Tempest> [Medic] Okay. If you haven't noticed yet, I can hear you but I cannot see you. Damn camera got fried last time... Sorry to ask, but what is your gender? [18:00] <Suzume> I am a female. [18:01] <~Tempest> [Medic] Alright. Let me fiddle with the screen for a moment... You should be able to read a few propositions on the monitor. I want you to tell me which one is your species. [18:01] <&Hebizuka> [Monitor] a) Human - b) Halfling [18:01] <Suzume> Human. [18:02] <~Tempest> [Medic] Excellent. How old are you? [18:03] <Suzume> 16 [18:04] <~Tempest> [Medic] *Faint sound of keyboard clicking* ...Okay. Just a moment. [18:05] <~Tempest> [Medic] Normally I would have more advanced machines to do this job, but we've had equipment damage recently. I've brought in some archaic measuring equipment and reference posters to replace them but if they're not precise enough, let me know. [18:06] <~Tempest> [Medic] Can you get out of bed and move to the first one? They're all aligned along the wall that should be to your left. [18:08] * Suzume slides out of bed and walks over to the left wall [18:09] <&Hebizuka> *The first item is a medical poster describing various examples of body shapes.* [18:09] <~Tempest> [Medic] I need you to tell me which of these look closest to you. [18:09] <&Hebizuka> [Body shape?] Thin - Slender - Average - Athletic - Muscular - Overweight - Obese [18:10] <Suzume> Slender. [18:12] <~Tempest> [Medic] Now, I need you to use the measuring tape and tell me how tall it says you are. [18:12] <&Hebizuka> [Height?] [18:13] * Suzume grabs measuring tape and measures herself from head to foot, hm..5ft 6in [18:15] <~Tempest> [Medic] Alright. Now, use the scale, measure your body mass, and tell me the results. [18:15] <&Hebizuka> [Weight?] [18:16] * Suzume steps onto the scale and stands still, 135 pounds [18:19] <~Tempest> [Medic] So far so good. Now for some more superficial information. The next is a medical poster about different skin pigmentations. I'm assuming that since you're a human, you will look close from one of these - i need you to tell me which one. [18:19] <&Hebizuka> *The poster describes various skin colors and ethnicities, referring to them using the name of gems and crystals.* [18:19] <&Hebizuka> [Skin color?] Diamond (Albino), Opal (Nordic, pale white), Pearl (Caucasian), Peridot (Arabid), Heliodor (East asian), Citrine (Malay, filipino), Carnelian (Latino), Axinite (Native American), Onyx (Black) [18:20] <~Tempest> [Medic] If none of them match you, don't hesitate to tell me. We've seen a few oddities. [18:21] * Suzume gazes at the poster, hm..Pearl (caucasian) seems to be correct [18:24] <~Tempest> [Medic] Moving on. The next poster should be about hair. Again, look it up, and tell me what matches you best. [18:24] <&Hebizuka> [Hair length?] Bald/shaved, very short, short, shoulder-length, back-length, hip-length [18:24] <&Hebizuka> [Hair color?] Black, dark brown, brown, auburn, chestnut, blonde, platinum blonde, gray, red, white, silver - or other, if none matches [18:25] <Suzume> Shoulder-length,chestnut hair. [18:27] <~Tempest> [Medic] The next one should be about eyes. You know the drill, by now. [18:27] <&Hebizuka> [Eye color?] Blue, green, gray, blue-green, amber, hazel, brown, red, black, violet - or other, if none matches [18:28] <Suzume> Brown eyes. [18:30] <~Tempest> [Medic] Very well. I think this concludes the first part. I now have a more complete report about you but I still have a few tests to run. We need to know a little about your physical and mental capabilities. [18:38] <&Hebizuka> *For this part, you will need to spend points into various statistics.* [18:39] <&Hebizuka> *You are given 5 free points to spend, but you can also subtract from other statistics to gain more to spend elsewhere.* [18:40] <&Hebizuka> Natural Pain sensitivity: 0 pts - 100%. 1 pt = 5%. [18:40] <&Hebizuka> Natural Strength: 0 pts - 100%. 1 pt = 10%. [18:40] <&Hebizuka> Maximum Pain before blackout: 0 pts - 100%. 1 pt = 5%. [18:40] <&Hebizuka> Maximum Blood: 0 pts - 20. 1 pt = 1 blood. [18:40] <&Hebizuka> Natural limb health modifier: 0 pts - 100%. 2 pts = 10%. [18:40] <&Hebizuka> *You can substract from stats with zero points; it will simply mean you'll get less than average in that stat.* [18:45] <Suzume> Natural Strength: 2pts, Max Pain Before Blackout: 1pt, Max Blood: 2pts.. [18:49] <&Hebizuka> *This will give you: 100% Pain sensitivity, 120% Strength, 105% Max pain before blackout, 22 Max blood units, and unmodified limb health. Confirm this is what you want?* [18:49] <Suzume> Yes. [18:51] <~Tempest> [Medic] Now, I need an idea of your combat skills. Continue using the monitor here and follow the instructions... [18:52] <&Hebizuka> *As before, you will need to spend points - this time into weapon skills. Again, you have 5 free points to spend, but this time you cannot take any points away from skills at zero, as you cannot have lower than zero in any skill category.* [18:52] <&Hebizuka> 1 point in any skill category = 50 Training Points (TPs) in that weapon skill. [18:52] <&Hebizuka> 0 or 1 points leaves the skill level at Unskilled (low accuracy) [18:52] <&Hebizuka> 100 TPs/2 points required for Basic level (normal accuracy) [18:52] <&Hebizuka> 250 TPs/5 points required for Skilled level (improved accuracy) [18:52] <&Hebizuka> [18:52] <&Hebizuka> Weapon skill list [18:52] <&Hebizuka> Firearm: Precision rifle - Combat rifle - Shotgun - Conventional rifle - Machine gun - Submachine gun - Pistol - Auto pistol - Revolver [18:52] <&Hebizuka> Explosive: Grenade launcher - Rocket launcher - Hand grenade - Planted explosives [18:52] <&Hebizuka> Melee : Blunt - Sharp - Piercing - Unarmed (martial arts) [18:58] <Suzume> shotgun: 2pts, hand grenade: 2pts, piercing: 1pt [18:59] <&Hebizuka> *This will give you Basic skill level (100 TPs) to Shotgun and Hand Grenade, and 50 TPs (Unskilled) into Piercing.

We're practically finished. Before we move on with that, I still have a test I can put you through... A psychological evaluation, really quick. It's completely optional, and you don't have to do it. What do you say? [20:08] <Suzume> Hm..I guess I could try it.. [20:10] <~Tempest> [Medic] Which of these descriptors apply best to your personality type?

[20:20] <~Tempest> [Medic] Alright, that's a wrap. I'll be coming in this room in just a minute to deliver your equipment. [20:26] <&Hebizuka> *The medic opens the door, pushing a cart inside of the hospital bedroom. Inside the cart are three boxes, which you suspect contain your equipment.* [20:26] <~Tempest> [Medic] Good morning. I'm glad to see you're in good health after all. [20:28] <Suzume> Morning. [20:29] <~Tempest> [Medic] Here, feel free to open the boxes in there, there are the clothes and equipment you requested. [20:30] * Suzume carefully opens each box and retrieves her requested items.

[20:35] <Suzume> Mhm! [20:39] <~Tempest> [Medic] Alright. Well, feel free to open the other crates as well. If you have any questions, do ask, I'm here for that. [20:39] <Suzume> Ok!

So far I do not have any questions. [20:50] <~Tempest> [Medic] Well, I'm a bit surprised you have nothing to ask me... You have, in fact, died, in your original homeworld, in which you're no longer. You are in a realm named The Mazes, and without explaining too much the specifics, your soul was captured and placed in the body you're in, right now. [20:51] <~Tempest> [Medic] The reason this happened to you is because the administrator of the realm has seen fit to do so. You are the Contestant, and you've been essentially given a second chance to live, provided you can make your way out of here. As I understand it, your only way out of the Mazes and back in your homeworld is by finding four divine artifacts, the Cardinal Amulets. No-one knows where they are; it is up to you to find them. Once you have all four, you will have the ability to return home. [20:53] <Suzume> Ahh. I see. [20:54] <~Tempest> [Medic] No questions? [20:54] <Suzume> Not that I can think of, no.. [21:00] <&Hebizuka> [Pack/Main] 1/40 [21:00] <&Hebizuka> [Money] 300 P$ in pouch [21:03] <~Tempest> [Medic] Very well, then I shall let you be on your way. [21:03] <&Hebizuka> Checkout
