From Mazeworld

[17:46] <&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.* [17:46] <&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.* [17:46] <~Tempest> [Medic] Hello, can you hear me? [17:49] * Lima looks at the bald man on the TV before looking around a bit, did he get injured and wake up from a coma? He couldn't ask that as now he was being asked a question by the guy on the TV. "Huh? Yeah, I can hear you.." Lima replied in a low tone, feeling under the weather from whatever he had just waken up from. [17:53] <~Tempest> [Medic] Good. My sensors indicate that you have just woken up, and that your vital signs seem stable. [17:54] <~Tempest> [Medic] I know you must be disoriented right now, but I have to ask you some questions. Your questions will help me determine if you're indeed in good health. Once this is dealt with, I will answer any of yours if you have any, which I am sure you do, but... First, I will ask you to wait and answer mine first. Understood? [17:54] * Lima 's eyes are a bit wide, the fast pace being a bit too much for him before he just nods and opens his mouth to speak. "Yeah, I got it. What do you wanna ask me?" [17:55] <~Tempest> [Medic] Let's start with the basic stuff. First, I need you to give me your full name. [17:56] * Lima scratches the back of his head... should he really just give someone he doesn't know his last name? That'd probably compromise his INFOSEC, but it wasn't like he had a choice right now... "Andrew Hamilton." [17:58] <~Tempest> [Medic] All right... If you haven't noticed yet, I can hear you but I cannot see you. Damn camera got fried last time... Which brings me to my next question: What is your gender? [17:59] <Lima> Male. [17:59] <~Tempest> [Medic] Concise and to the point... I like that. Now, take a peek at the monitor. [17:59] <&Hebizuka> *The monitor stops displaying the Medic's face, instead showing text - a bunch of choices.* [17:59] <~Tempest> [Medic] I need you to tell me which of these corresponds the most to your species. [18:00] <&Hebizuka> [Species?] Human or Halfling [18:00] * Lima raises his brow when he reads "Halfing" and snickers, thinking it was like one of those half-cat things in cartoons. "Human, I believe." [18:01] <~Tempest> [Medic] Very well... Can you tell me your age? [18:01] <Lima> Thirty five. [18:04] <~Tempest> [Medic] Good. Now, for the next part, I would normally have more advanced machines to do this job, but we've had equipment damage recently... so I brought it some older, archaic measuring equipment and reference posters as a replacement. If they're not good enough, do let me know. [18:04] <~Tempest> [Medic] And now, I need you to get out of bed, and start with the first, which should be a poster describing body shapes. Look at it, and tell me which of them looks closest to yours. [18:04] <&Hebizuka> [Constitution?] Thin, Slender, Average, Athletic, Muscular, Overweight, Obese [18:06] * Lima grabs the left rail that's on the his bed and pulls himself upwards, whilst his lower body swung over so he could be in the sitting position; afterwards, he pushed himself up against till he was standing. He looked at the poster and started inspecting the poster. "I think Athletic describes me." [18:08] <~Tempest> [Medic] Now, use the measuring tape machine, and give me your height. It should give readouts in both feet and inches, and in meters, so use either one to your liking. [18:08] * Lima nodded and did so, going for the one in feet and inches and using it. "Five feet, nine inches." [18:09] <~Tempest> [Medic] The next one is a measuring scale. Use it to give me your weight. Again, it should read out either in pounds or kilograms, so use either one. [18:10] * Lima went over to the scale and stepped on it slowly, standing up straight so all his weight was distributed evenly. "One-hundred and seventy pounds." [18:11] <~Tempest> [Medic] Very good. Now, for some more superficial info. The next poster should talk about skin colors, each one named after a gemstone. I need you to tell me which one is the closest from yours. [18:12] <&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) - or Other, if none match [18:12] <Lima> Pearl. [18:14] <~Tempest> [Medic] The next one should talk about hair. You know the drill. [18:14] <&Hebizuka> [Hair length?] Bald/shaved, very short, short, shoulder-length, back-length, hip-length [18:15] <&Hebizuka> [Hair color?] Black, dark brown, brown, auburn, chestnut, blonde, platinum blonde, gray, red, white, silver - or other, if none match [18:15] <Lima> Short, dark brown hair. [18:16] <~Tempest> [Medic] Next one is about eyes. Same drill. [18:16] <&Hebizuka> [Eye color?] Blue, green, gray, blue-green, amber, hazel, brown, red, black, violet - or other, if none match [18:16] <Lima> Hazel. [18:18] <~Tempest> [Medic] Excellent! This concludes the first part. I now have a more complete report about you, but I still have tests to run. I need to know more about your physical and mental capabilities. [18:18] <Lima> Sure thing, just ask away. [18:20] <&Hebizuka> *You will now decide your Primary statistics. You will be given points to spend across a few statistics; adjust as necessary.* [18:21] <&Hebizuka> *For this first part, you have 5 points to distribute among five statistics. All of those stats are currently set at 0 points. They can go no lower than -4, and no higher than +4. If you want more points to spend, you can remove points from stats at 0 in order to put them elsewhere.* [18:22] <&Hebizuka> Natural Pain sensitivity: 0 pts - 100%. 1 pt = 5%. Lower is better. [18:22] <&Hebizuka> Natural Strength: 0 pts - 100%. 1 pt = 10%. Higher is better. [18:22] <&Hebizuka> Maximum Pain before blackout: 0 pts - 100%. 1 pt = 5%. Higher is better. [18:22] <&Hebizuka> Maximum Blood: 0 pts - 20. 1 pt = 1 blood. Higher is better. [18:22] <&Hebizuka> Natural limb health modifier: 0 pts - 100%. 1 pt = 10%. Higher is better. [18:22] <&Hebizuka> *If you need explanations on what a stat does, ask the medic.* [18:23] <Lima> 1 in everything.] [18:24] <&Hebizuka> Natural Pain sensitivity: 1 pts - 95% [18:24] <&Hebizuka> Natural Strength: 1 pts - 110% [18:24] <&Hebizuka> Maximum Pain before blackout: 1 pts - 105% [18:24] <&Hebizuka> Maximum Blood: 1 pts - 21 [18:24] <&Hebizuka> Natural limb health modifier: 1 pts - 110% [18:24] <&Hebizuka> *Confirm this is what you want?* [18:24] <Lima> Yes. [18:26] <~Tempest> [Medic] Now, let's talk about weapon skills. [18:26] <&Hebizuka> Points to spend: 5 [18:26] <&Hebizuka> 1 point in any skill category = 50 Training Points (TPs) in that weapon skill. [18:26] <&Hebizuka> 0 or 1 points leaves the skill level at Unskilled (low accuracy) [18:26] <&Hebizuka> 100 TPs/2 points required for Basic level (normal accuracy) [18:26] <&Hebizuka> 250 TPs/5 points required for Skilled level (improved accuracy) [18:26] <&Hebizuka> [18:26] <&Hebizuka> No skill can have less than 0 points spent - you can get no more than 5 points to distribute. [18:26] <&Hebizuka> Each weapon type represents one skill ; there is a total of 17 weapon skills.

[18:31] <&Hebizuka> [Note] You have maximum training in Auto Pistol and can no longer improve that skill through training! [18:34] <~Tempest> [Medic] I suppose you don't want to remain naked all day long either... It's just a supposition, though. Please use the next few selectors to assign yourself equipment.

[19:06] <&Hebizuka> *The monitor shuts down.* [19:17] <~Tempest> *The medic finally shows up in the flesh.* [19:18] <~Tempest> *He is pushing a cart with boxes and crates inside, presumably with your selected items inside.* [19:18] <~Tempest> [Medic] Good morning, Andrew. [19:19] * Lima looks at the boxes before nodding. "Morning, I take it this is all the gear I'm going to be taking with me...?" [19:20] <~Tempest> [Medic] That's correct.

Items you choose not to wear can be carried in the backpack instead.* [19:26] * Lima grabs the pants first, sliding them on upwards before buttoning it up and sliding the zipper upwards; then he goes on with the shirt with tie. "I got one question... what is this place? This isn't like any hopsital I've ever been to. Everything seems foreign." He said then put on the hiking shoes, M1 Helmet, Flack Jacket and pads. "Also, where's my machine pistol?" It seems he was rather uneasy without a weapon. [19:28] <~Tempest> [Medic] My bad, let me open the weapons box. [19:30] <&Hebizuka> <Weapons and ammo> [19:30] <&Hebizuka> [Weapon] Class 3 - Beretta 93R auto pistol | 9x19mm Parabellum - Semi/Burst3 | M.Brake(I), Foregrip(I) | Beretta 92 series 20-round mag, +1 | Weight: 3 - [19+1/20 FMJ] - Cond: Brand new / Clns: Lubricated [19:30] <&Hebizuka> [Weapon accessory] Magazine: Beretta 92 20-round extended magazine.

Size tier: Small ; Weight: 0.5+0.2 (0.7) - [20/20 FMJ] [19:30] <&Hebizuka> [Weapon accessory] Magazine: Beretta 92 20-round extended magazine.

"Hm.." He ponders a bit before putting two of the spare magazines in Ammo 1, then the 3rd spare magazine in ammo 2(Competition vest). He puts the Money and 50 FMJ rounds in his Backpack. "Is there anything else, or am I free to go?" [19:36] <&Hebizuka> *Managing inventory, please wait* [19:38] <&Hebizuka> *Loose rounds do not go into [Vest/Ammo 2]. They can go into [Vest/Main], however.* [19:40] <&Hebizuka> *Place your 50 rounds of 9x19mm FMJ in Vest/Main? (general capacity)* [19:40] <Lima> Yes. [19:40] <&Hebizuka> [Vest/Ammo 1] 2/2 mags [19:40] <&Hebizuka> [Vest/Ammo 2] 1/2 mags [19:41] <&Hebizuka> [Vest/Main] 0.5/3 [19:42] <~Tempest> [Medic] I must quickly explain who you are and what you are doing here. You have, in fact, died in your original world. The administrator of this realm has however seen fit to capture your soul before it moved on, and it was placed in the body you are now in. No superhuman, magical, or extraordinary abilities, if you had any ; you are now a perfectly healthy normal human being. [19:42] <~Tempest> [Medic] In doing so, the Admin has essentially granted you a second chance at living, provided you can survive through the Mazes. Your objective is to find four divine artifacts, the Cardinal Amulets. Once you have all four, you will be allowed to return home, safe and sound. [19:43] <~Tempest> [Medic] That's for the basics. Do you need anything else? [19:44] <Lima> "..This all sounds like a bad dream, but all right. I suppose that'll do. " He gave a reluctant sigh before shoving the boonie hat in his Student's Backpack, unsure of where to go or what to do now. "Is there a hub, where I can go do missions or something? [19:45] <&Hebizuka> [Pack/Main] 3/30 [19:45] <~Tempest> [Medic] Please, go this way.
