From Mazeworld

[17:02] <&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.* [17:02] <&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.* [17:02] <~Tempest> [Medic] Hello, can you hear me? [17:06] <Reina> ...Well, Mom sure as hell never mentioned I'd be /stuck/ here. But then she probably never kicked the bucket. [17:07] <~Tempest> [Medic] You, in the bed. Can you hear me? My sensors show your vital signs are stable, but I need to be sure. [17:08] * Reina takes her sweet time getting up, bringing her soft, unruly tail between her legs so she can smooth the fur back into proper place. She doesn't talk to the television directly, instead giving him a small nod, but most of her attention is focused grooming the luscious bush that's tucked betwixt her thighs. [17:09] <~Tempest> [Medic] I know that you must be disoriented right now, but I have to ask you a bunch of questions, which will help me determine if you're indeed in good health. Once that's dealt with, I'll be coming in and answer whatever questions you have. But for the time being, mine first, understood? [17:13] * Reina nods again, a far cry from the rough and rowdy persona she likes to put on - but fuck it, dying from something that's not sex related does that to you. She hasn't been this intense on personal care for years, but it's a small comfort, one that keeps the racoon girl's nerves from fraying as she combs out frayed hairs with long, slender fingers. [17:14] <~Tempest> [Medic] *deep breath* Can you please reply? If you couldn't tell yet, I can't see you, but I -can- hear you. [17:17] <Reina> That's fucking dumb. You couldn't spring for a camera? [17:18] <~Tempest> [Medic] We've.. suffered a bit of equipment damage. Now if you would please be patient and reply to my questions... The faster it's dealt with, the better, understood. Now, let's start with the simple basics... What is your name? [17:20] <Reina> Don't you guys already have my name on the database or something? Big honking letters, 'Contestant' in bold print right next to it? Reina Miyako-Knight, at your service. [17:21] <~Tempest> [Medic] ...That is strange. I was about to reply we don't have this info and that it's the point of my questions, but I do already seem to have information by that name. I suppose the Administration was more forthcoming than usual. [17:22] <Reina> That's what happens when you got a recently-dead VIP on your hands. Good luck with the paperwork, by the by. [17:23] <~Tempest> [Medic] Reina Miyako-Knight, female raccoon halfling aged 18 years old. Your height is 188cm, your weight is 75.5kg, your skin is Heliodor-typed, you have shoulder-length brown hair, and you have green eyes. I suppose all of this information is correct? [17:25] <Reina> Actually, about that - shouldn't that say I'm an x-female? Like, you know, with a penis? Because I'm /pretty sure I had one when I arrived,/ and I never got the chance to file the paperwork vis a vis my forced sex reassignment. [17:25] <~Tempest> [Medic] ...No, your file says "female". And there is no history of it being edited, nor do you seem to have genetic anomalies of this sort... and I should know! [17:26] <Reina> Right, okay, so that's gonna be a question when it's my turn. We can move on for now. [17:27] <&Hebizuka> *The monitor ceases displaying the medic's face, instead showing a bunch of text, numbers, and sliding selectors.* [17:27] <~Tempest> [Medic] Very well. I need to have an idea of your physical capabilities. Please come closer and take a peek at the monitor... [17:29] <&Hebizuka> *Now determining your primary statistics. You have 5 points to spend across the stats that will be displayed below. All stats are currently set at 0 points, and can go no higher than +4 pts, and no lower than -4 pts. If you wish to have more than 5 points to spend, you can substract from stats at 0 to spend them elsewhere.* [17:29] <&Hebizuka> Natural Pain sensitivity: 0 pts - 100%. 1 pt = 5%. Lower is better. [17:29] <&Hebizuka> Natural Strength: 0 pts - 100%. 1 pt = 10%. Higher is better. [17:29] <&Hebizuka> Maximum Pain before blackout: 0 pts - 100%. 1 pt = 5%. Higher is better. [17:29] <&Hebizuka> Maximum Blood: 0 pts - 20. 1 pt = 1 blood. Higher is better. [17:29] <&Hebizuka> Natural limb health modifier: 0 pts - 100%. 1 pt = 10%. Higher is better. [17:31] <Reina> So, what, is this a touch screen or something? [17:31] <Reina> I'm gonna get dried cumsmears all over this thing if you let me press my fingers against it. [17:31] <&Hebizuka> *The monitor does come with a more traditional mouse and keyboard ,which is how you interface with it.* [17:32] <~Tempest> [Medic] What? Just... please get on with it. [17:33] <Reina> Your medic professor would weep at your terrible bedside manner. [17:34] <Reina> *+4 points into pain sensitivity, -2 points from Blood, +3 points into Strength.* [17:34] <Reina> Always been a little anemic. [17:35] <&Hebizuka> Natural Pain sensitivity: 4 pts - 80%. [17:35] <&Hebizuka> Natural Strength: 3 pts - 130%. [17:35] <&Hebizuka> Maximum Pain before blackout: 0 pts - 100%. [17:35] <&Hebizuka> Maximum Blood: -2 pts - 18. [17:35] <&Hebizuka> Natural limb health modifier: 0 pts - 100%. [17:35] <&Hebizuka> Points spent: 5/5 [17:35] <&Hebizuka> *Confirm?* [17:35] <Reina> *Yes* [17:37] <~Tempest> [Medic] Alright... Now, I need to have an idea of your weapon skills. [17:37] <&Hebizuka> Points to spend: 5 [17:37] <&Hebizuka> 1 point in any skill category = 50 Training Points (TPs) in that weapon skill. [17:37] <&Hebizuka> 0 or 1 points leaves the skill level at Unskilled (low accuracy) [17:37] <&Hebizuka> 100 TPs/2 points required for Basic level (normal accuracy) [17:37] <&Hebizuka> 250 TPs/5 points required for Skilled level (improved accuracy) [17:37] <&Hebizuka> No skill can have less than 0 points spent - you can get no more than 5 points to distribute. [17:37] <&Hebizuka> Each weapon type represents one skill ; there is a total of 17 weapon skills. [17:37] <&Hebizuka> Firearm skills: Precision rifle - Combat rifle - Shotgun - Conventional rifle - Machine gun - Submachine gun - Pistol - Auto pistol - Revolver [17:37] <&Hebizuka> Explosive skills: Grenade launcher - Rocket launcher - Hand grenade - Planted explosives [17:37] <&Hebizuka> Melee skills: Blunt - Sharp - Piercing - Non-gun ranged - Unarmed (martial arts) [17:37] <Reina> I'm really, /really/ good with thick, hard swords. [17:40] <Reina> +2 Shotgun, +2 Sharp, +1 Pistol [17:41] <&Hebizuka> *This will grant you 100 TPs in Shotgun (Basic skill), 100 TPs in Sharp (Basic), and 50 TPs in Pistol (Unskilled). Confirm?* [17:42] <Reina> *Confirm* [17:44] <~Tempest> [Medic] All right. Now to proceed with allocating equipment for you to pick, unless you actually enjoy being naked and unarmed, you will surely find you need these items. [17:45] <&Hebizuka> *There will be 5 points to spend for -all- equipment: clothing, armor, load-bearing equipment, and weapons. There are opportunities to choose lesser, or no items in certain categories to regain points, or to use them to acquire better items. Any unspent point in this phase will be converted into money: 150 P$ per point unspent.* [17:46] <&Hebizuka> Clothing - For having something to put on your back, and for style. [17:46] <&Hebizuka> Top: None/Naked (+1 pt) - Yes (0 pt) ; if yes, a selection will be displayed [17:46] <&Hebizuka> Bottom: None/Naked (+1 pt) - Yes (0 pt) ; if yes, a selection will be displayed [17:46] <&Hebizuka> Footwear: None/Naked (+1 pt) - Yes (0 pt) ; if yes, a selection will be displayed [17:46] <&Hebizuka> Headgear (clothing): None/Naked or Yes (either choice is free) [17:47] <Reina> *Am I allowed to look at my options later and go back?* [17:48] <&Hebizuka> *Yes, your choices can be reviewed at the end and modified as you see fit.* [17:48] <Reina> *Headgear only.* [17:48] <~Tempest> [Medic] Are you serious? [17:49] <Reina> I don't know how expensive everything else is, and a good armored vest is gonna cover up my breasts well enough anyways. Besides, have you /seen/ me? I don't actually need bra support. [17:50] <~Tempest> [Medic] ...Fine, but do keep in mind that indecent exposure is a crime. I urge you to reconsider, but you're the one with the selector. [17:50] <Reina> Like if there's nothing worth my time I'll probably pick out a good pair of panties and a dress or something, but when you come in here look me in the eye and tell me you don't like what you see. [17:50] <&Hebizuka> *Available headgear (pick one): Baseball cap, Beret, Fedora, Bandana, Boonie hat* [17:51] <Reina> *Wow these are shit. I'm going headless, too.* [17:53] <&Hebizuka> Armor - For actually protecting yourself. [17:53] <&Hebizuka> Body armor: None - Flak jacket (-2 pts) - Type-2 Kevlar vest (-4 pts) - Type-3 Kevlar vest (-6 pts) [17:53] <&Hebizuka> Headgear: None - M1 Helmet (-1 pts) - Twaron helmet (-2 pts) - SPECTRA helmet (-3 pts) [17:53] <&Hebizuka> Arms addons: None - Elbow pads (0 pt) - Arm guards (-1) - Twaron arm pads (-2) [17:53] <&Hebizuka> Legs addons: None - Knee pads (0 pt) - Leg guards (-1) - Twaron leg pads (-2) [17:53] <Reina> Pricey, pricey. [17:54] <Reina> Let's check out the weapons, first. [17:55] <&Hebizuka> Load-Bearing Equipment (LBE) - For carrying items and having an inventory. [17:55] <&Hebizuka> Backpack: No backpack (+4pt) - Shoulder bag (+2pt, 20 units) - Student's backpack (+1pt, 30 units) - Field pack (0pt, 40 units) - Standard backpack (-2pt, 50 units) - J├Ąger rucksack (-3pt, 60 units) [17:55] <&Hebizuka> Utility belt: No belt (+2pt, but can't carry key items) - Default belt (0pt, can carry key items) - LE Tactical belt (-1pt, key items + extra inv space) - Gunfighter belt (-1pt, key items + extra inv space) [17:55] <&Hebizuka> Tactical vest: No vest (0pt) - Competition vest (-1pt) - MK64 Trooper (-2pt) - VersaForce (-3pt) [17:59] * Reina just continues mashing on the mouse to get to the important part. Weapon first, everything else second. [18:05] <&Hebizuka> Weapons - For combat and self-defense. You can select ONE of the listed packages for free. Any extra packages costs 4 points. [18:05] <&Hebizuka> Shotgun 1: Baikal MP-27M (Buck) + 20x 12 gauge buckshot [18:05] <&Hebizuka> Shotgun 2: Savage/Stevens M67 (Buck) + 20x 12 gauge buckshot [18:05] <&Hebizuka> Pistol 1: Beretta 84FS (FMJ) + 3x Beretta 84 mags (FMJ) + 50x .380 ACP FMJ [18:05] <&Hebizuka> Sharp 1: Pocket knife [18:05] <&Hebizuka> Sharp 2: KA-BAR combat knife [18:19] <Reina> *From the bottom: Shotgun 2 package (0 Points), Competition Vest (-1 Vest), No Belt (+2 pts), Standard Backpack (-2 Pt), Elbow and Knee Pads (0 Points), SPECTRA helmet (-3 pts), Type-2 Kevlar Vest (-4 pts).* [18:19] <Reina> *And let's see what we have for my legs and crotch. If these things will even fit my tail.* [18:24] <&Hebizuka> *One moment...* [18:27] <&Hebizuka> *With the current selection, you have 2 points left to spend.* [18:33] <&Hebizuka> Available bottoms (pick one): Jeans, Regular pants, Tracksuit pants, Shorts, Leather pants, Mountain pants, Cargo pants (plain) [18:37] <Reina> ...You're seriously expecting me to wear these things commando? My pussy's gonna /chafe!/ [18:39] <Reina> *Additions: Leather Pants, upgrade Competition Vest to MK64 Trooper.* [18:47] <&Hebizuka> *The current selection puts you at -2 points ; you need to change certain choices.* [18:53] <Reina> A glitch in the system? Ugh, whatever. Nothing in Mazeworld works anyways. [18:54] <~Tempest> [Medic] I heard that! [18:54] <Reina> *Downgrade Trooper to Competition Vest, downgrade SPECTRA to Twaron.* [18:54] <Reina> Good, because you should *get someone to fix it!* [18:55] <&Hebizuka> Clothing - For having something to put on your back, and for style. [18:55] <&Hebizuka> Top: None/Naked (+1 pt) [18:55] <&Hebizuka> Bottom: Yes / Leather pants [18:55] <&Hebizuka> Footwear: None/Naked (+1 pt) [18:55] <&Hebizuka> Headgear (clothing): None [18:55] <&Hebizuka> Armor - For actually protecting yourself. [18:55] <&Hebizuka> Body armor: Type-2 Kevlar vest (-4 pts) [18:55] <&Hebizuka> Headgear (armor): Twaron Helmet (-2 pts) [18:55] <&Hebizuka> Arms addons: Elbow pads [18:55] <&Hebizuka> Legs addons: Knee pads [18:55] <&Hebizuka> Backpack: Standard backpack (-2 pts) [18:55] <&Hebizuka> Utility belt: None (+2 pts) [18:55] <&Hebizuka> Tactical vest: Competition vest (-1 pts) [18:55] <&Hebizuka> Shotgun 2: Savage/Stevens M67 (Buck) + 20x 12 gauge buckshot [18:55] <Reina> Either I get 200 P$ on top of this because it reads me as having extra points, ooooor it doesn't. Either way, eh. [18:55] <&Hebizuka> *Confirm?* [18:55] <Reina> *Yes, yes. Let's hurry this on already.* [18:56] <~Tempest> [Medic] All right. Good. We're getting through this. You aren't easy to work with, miss Miyako-Knight. [18:56] <Reina> I resent that remark. I have been nothing but honest and amicable. [18:57] <~Tempest> [Medic] I'll be coming inside this room myself with the equipment you've chosen. [18:57] <Reina> Good, because I have a few questions. [18:57] <&Hebizuka> *The monitor shuts down.* [19:01] <&Hebizuka> *After a short moment, the medic comes in the room, pushing a cart with several items inside ; presumably the gear you've selected for yourself earlier.* [19:01] <~Tempest> [Medic] Good morning. Here is your gear. [19:01] * Reina grins as soon as the man walks in with all of her gear, and takes a step back to both give him room and to grab at her attention. Without any sort of support, Reina's soft, meaty breasts jiggle with every gentle step, and the lusty halfling helps emphasize them even more by letting them bulge and spill out between her groping hands. "Look me in the eye and tell me you don't like what you see." [19:01] <~Tempest> *The medic pauses, and gives a long, cold stare.* [19:02] <~Tempest> [Medic] Miss Reina. I was part of the people who brought your very body to life. If all it took to distract me was large breasts and nudity, I'd be out of a job since a long while. [19:04] <Reina> Yeaaaaah, but there's a difference between a cold fish and a very warm, very wet body. Gods rest your soul if you can't process that, Mister...? [19:04] <~Tempest> [Medic] Didn't you have questions to ask? [19:05] <Reina> I'm asking them right now. What's the name of this hunk of a man standing before me? I want to thank him properly for pulling me from the aether. [19:06] <~Tempest> [Medic] I'm just the person that... well... Made your body, so to speak. The one you have to thank for technically bringing you here is the Administrator. But to answer your question, I am Dr. Philip Gage, chief of the Proving Grounds medical staff. [19:08] <Reina> A /Doctor,/ eh? Well, you know what they say about large brains. Sure you're not up for a little fun before I have to put my puppies away? [19:08] <~Tempest> [Medic] No. Anything else? [19:08] <Reina> I think the person who made my body deserves first crack at it - bah, you /are/ a dead fish. Gods have mercy on whoever fancies you. [19:08] <Reina> Yes, just the one - who do I go to to get genetically modified and get my penis back? [19:09] <Reina> Becanse Lance sure as hell isn't making bionic penises anytime soon. [19:09] <~Tempest> [Medic] Y- Uh. I don't think such a thing is possible. Sorry. [19:11] <Reina> What? Come on, there used to be tons of guys with cunts and girls with cocks here. There has to be /something./ Don't the hospital machines change physio codes? [19:11] <~Tempest> [Medic] ...No. I'm not sure what sort of information you have - and by the Gods I have no idea how you know about Lance to begin with - but it's wrong for the most part. [19:12] <Reina> My Mom was in the Mazes. Turns out Contestantship's genetic. [19:12] <Reina> Or. A Mazes. If you pulled me from another dimension, there's probably multiple Mazes too. [19:13] <Reina> Okay, quick double check - we still have the Soldiers and the Activists, the Angelics and the Demonics, and the Guards versus the Outlaws, yes? [19:13] <Reina> I already know Lance exists, so some things stay the same. [19:14] <~Tempest> [Medic] Yes, all of these exist... This should be a case study on its own but I don't really have any authorization to keep you here. [19:15] <Reina> ...Wellllll, I don't mind sticking around once I get back up on my feet. Even if you have no authorization, I don't mind coming back for a few more tests, /Doctor/ Gage. What Sector are we in? [19:16] <~Tempest> [Medic] We are in the civilized area of Arnett, if that's what you're asking. [19:17] <~Tempest> [Medic] Oh, there is one more thing, but it's optional. I have an incomplete section on my file about you. It does list your cause of death in your homeworld (it seems to be... dehydration?), but none of the other details are filled out. If you wish, you can answer those. [19:18] <Reina> ...Okay, new question. Do these particular set of Mazes work off a numbered Sector system, with each Room having a four digit code to designate it? [19:18] <~Tempest> [Medic] No. [19:18] <Reina> Well, that's new. So... what, you guys have /actual towns/ now? [19:19] <~Tempest> [Medic] As far as I'm aware we've always had them... [19:19] <Reina> And - wait, how do phone numbers work, if they're not keyed to location? Each phone come with its own unique number to call now? [19:19] <~Tempest> [Medic] As it always did. [19:20] <Reina> As we've established, Doctor, your 'always did' is not my 'always did'. So, how did it always work for you and yours? [19:21] <~Tempest> [Medic] It... did, what do you want me to say. [19:22] <Reina> My question is, 'If I had a cell phone and wanted to call them, will I always be using the same phone number or will the phone number change depending on where the other person is?' [19:23] <~Tempest> [Medic] What a ridiculous question, a number is tied to one phone, of course. [19:23] <Reina> Oh /thank christ/ you guys are so much less batshit than Hebi's other Maze. [19:24] <Reina> Are the service numbers still the same? To call the police, emergency medical services, things like that? [19:24] <~Tempest> [Medic] Yes, it's 9-1. [19:26] <Reina> Okay, good to hear. [19:29] * Reina begins dressing now and slotting everything where it needs to be slotted, but it's slow going. Her breasts are large enough to make squishing into the Kevlar a bit of a chore, and nothing needs to be said about the tight leather pants. The tail doesn't help matters at all, but in truth the leather pants seem like they're a size too small. Reina can only get the waistline to hug her voluptuous ass, [19:29] * Reina and no matter high hard she tugs and pulls, her thick brown pubes are only partially hidden. [19:29] <~Tempest> *The Medic is currently questioning his life choices.* [19:29] <Reina> Jesus mercy you guys need a tailor or something. Okay, so, uh - that's all my questions, Doctor Gage, so do you have any more for me? [19:30] <~Tempest> [Medic] A couple of optionals. As I was saying earlier, I have your cause of death (is it correct?), but I'd like to fill out the last three sections. For clarity's sake. [19:30] <Reina> Like you said, I make for a /very/ interesting Case Study - ah, yes, sure. [19:31] <Reina> Right, so, this isn't anything new, but I'm a temple prostitute for the gods. It's the best way I can use my natural talents to serve my faith, and I was very, /very/ good. There were lines, and I can promise you there's not a whore alive in the Mazes that can say the same. [19:32] <Reina> But, well - you're a Doctor, you know how exhausting sex can get. And it's not like I haven't died before, so instead of taking a break to refuel I simply kept cumming, and cumming, and /cumming.../ [19:33] <Reina> I came my soul out. Usually, I'd be brought right back, but you guys managed to snatch my soul while I was waiting for the priest to clean up my body. So, sorta like what you do. [19:33] <~Tempest> [Medic] ...oh for dear Suzaku's sake. [19:33] <Reina> Seiryuu, actually! [19:34] <Reina> Suzaku's a bird, they only have cloacas. [19:34] <~Tempest> [Medic] Like y-... Nevermind. You do know. Ugh. Let's just proceed with my last three... [19:35] <Reina> But /dragons./ Oh man, you have not had a good time until you see the Gods descend from the Heaven to sate their lust on trained virgin mikos. [19:36] <~Tempest> [Medic] Now... Look at these descriptors here on my clipboard. I want you to tell me which Type is closest from your personality. [19:36] <&Hebizuka> Type A: Reserved, responsible and passionate, but also stubborn, tense, and squeamish. [19:36] <&Hebizuka> Type B: Creative, strong, always active, but also irresponsible, selfish and unforgiving. [19:36] <&Hebizuka> Type C: Cool, adaptable, rational, but also cold-hearted, indecisive and forgetful. [19:36] <&Hebizuka> Type D: Confident, optimistic and strong-willed, but also egotistical, unpredictable and doubtful. [19:36] <&Hebizuka> I have no idea / I'm not sure [19:36] <Reina> If one of these isn't 'a raging slut' then - nope, none of these. [19:36] <Reina> Also, being passionately reserved is, well. Kinda an oxymoron. [19:37] <Reina> Type D's the best fit, frankly. Lord knows I don't have an irresponsible bone in my body. [19:37] <~Tempest> [Medic] What lord? [19:37] <~Tempest> [Medic] Nevermind. [19:38] <Reina> Seiryuu. I was /just/ waxing poetic about how awesome it is to see her claim the shrine maidens as her own. [19:38] <~Tempest> [Medic] How would you describe your ability to withstand stress? [19:38] <&Hebizuka> <<< I try my hardest to avoid any and all stressors - << I stay away as much as I can from stressful things - < I have difficulty managing stress - I can handle stress, to some extent - I am used to stressful events > - I've grown to handle all but the hardest events >> - I feel completely insensitive and unable to be stressed out >>> [19:39] <Reina> Better than you, for sure. Seriously, Doctor, you need a good hot coffee and an even better massage. [19:39] <Reina> I'm used to stressful events. All /kinds/ of stress. [19:40] <~Tempest> [Medic] Final question. How energetic would you describe yourself to be? [19:40] <&Hebizuka> <<< Wet noodle ; I am unable to do any sort of hard work lest I pass out - << Weak ; I am tired easily and I require frequent resting - < Fragile ; I am average, just not very endurant - Average ; I am capable of taking some hard work if I need to - > Tough ; I'm not afraid of hard work and can last a while - >> Hyperactive ; I can handle so much, inactivity actually tires me - >>> Unstoppable ; I could last entire days of work without sleep [19:40] <Reina> Enough to die without dehydration. [19:41] <Reina> As for /this/ little thing - Hyperactive's the best bet. I can last a while, but the longest was only 17 hours. [19:41] <Reina> So, not full days. I'm getting there. [19:42] <~Tempest> [Medic] That wraps it up.

[19:47] <&Hebizuka> *One moment...* [19:47] * Reina puts everything on, slides all of the buckshot into her vest, and takes a single shell to load the shotgun completely. Full tube and one at the ready! [19:51] <&Hebizuka> [Reload] Model 67 shotgun: +1 shell. [4+1/4, 5x Buck] [19:51] <&Hebizuka> *Placed all remaining shells in Vest/Shells.* [19:51] <&Hebizuka> *Time taken: 1 turn* [19:51] <&Hebizuka> [Vest/Shells] 19/20 shells [19:51] <&Hebizuka> [Pack/Main] 0/50 [19:51] <&Hebizuka> *You are now all set.* [19:53] <~Tempest> [Medic] If you don't need anything else, I shall escort you to the town center. Afterwards, we will part ways. Feel free to visit the town if you wish. [19:55] <Reina> Won't be a problem, but I'll be able to make my way back here to chat with you, right? Or at least leave a message? [19:55] <Reina> I think the two of us could have a very productive relationship. [19:56] <~Tempest> [Medic] I'm afraid not. I will be leaving town now that my job is complete. You're... decidedly alive and in good health, and I have completed my report. I doubt we will see each other again soon. Good luck out there. [19:58] <Reina> Awww. Can't even get a phone number? Email address? [20:02] <~Tempest> [Medic] Sorry, top secret. [20:03] <Reina> Bah. I'll figure it out eventually. [20:04] * Reina /does/ want to leave him something to remember her by, though. Once he leads the way, but before he vanishes into the mists, she's going to steal a nice, lusty kiss. [20:06] <~Tempest> *The doc sidesteps before the kiss can happen. He proceeds with leading the way out and towards the city.* [21:14] <&Hebizuka> *Ready to leave the room?* [21:14] <Reina> *Yes.* [21:15] <&Hebizuka> *Dr Gage guides you out of the facility, through a few corridors and rooms, then outside. After a bit more walking, where you pass alongside a few shops, you finally end up in the Social Square Center of Arnett, the very heart of the city.* [21:16] <~Tempest> [Medic] Alright, here you go. There is a town map here if you need to find your way. I'll be going now... Take care and -try- not to get yourself killed. [21:17] <Reina> Hey, if I die, we'll just have a chance to shoot the breeze some more, eh? [21:17] <Reina> And maybe you can get me a dick next time. [21:17] <~Tempest> *He ignores that last one and briskly walks away.* [21:17] <&Hebizuka> *You are now inside of the town of Arnett, in the Social Square - very precisely at the heart of it, the Square Center.* [21:18] <Reina> Right, so, I'm broke. [21:18] <Reina> So, map, where's the nearest whorehouse? [21:19] <&Hebizuka> *The center is the central point from which four "arms" of corridors extend, each of those arms having accesses to shops and facilities along their sides. Each of the arms is 5 rooms long, the fifth room of each arm having an access to another one of the town's major facilities. All social squares follow this basic layout ; towns differ in population, active shops, and sometimes, faction.* [21:19] <&Hebizuka> *The North arm points to the Hospital, the West arm points to the Residential area, the East arm points to the shop hub, and the South arm points to the Entrance.* [21:21] <Reina> South it is. I don't have the outfit to go door to door. [21:21] <&Hebizuka> *Fast travel to the Entrance? (6 turns)* [21:21] <Reina> *Yes.* [21:23] <&Hebizuka> *You are now in the Town Entrance's "Gap" corridor. The room is empty, aside from a few directional signs. // North: Towards the Social square (Previous location) - East: Towards the Generator - South: Town Gate.* [21:24] <Reina> *Town Gate.* [21:25] <&Hebizuka> *The Town Gate is nothing more than a sort of checkpoint room where locals are stationed to guard the town entrance, and serve as the first line of defense in case of emergencies. Arnett's Gate is currently occupied by three Maze Citizens, armed with various, personal weapons. They look bored. // North (Previous): Gap corridor - West: Toilets - South: Access corridor.* [21:26] <Reina> Hey, guys. Don't suppose any of you know where the nearest demon sanctum is? [21:26] <~Tempest> [Citizen1] Uhhh... [21:26] <~Tempest> [Citizen2] A what to the who now? [21:27] <~Tempest> [Citizen3] Ignore those two fools. You wanna find one of those crazy Demonic towns? [21:27] <Reina> Yup yup. I want to see what all the fuss is about, and I figured you might have a direction or two. [21:28] <Reina> I mean, I'm practically succubus material already, amirite or amirite? [21:29] <~Tempest> [Citizen3] If I were you, I'd avoid those hell pits. You seem pretty, yeah, but why waste the talents in a place like that? Seek out a safer place, there's nothing but corruption and death in those areas. [21:30] * Reina grins and takes a step closer, leaning forward so that her barely-covered breasts strain against the tight armored vest. "Well, if you got suggestions or ideas, I'll be glad to take them. I'll even thank you however you like." [21:32] <~Tempest> [Citizen3] By the Gods, maybe you are a good fit for a town like that... I've heard of a settlement called Salavat, but that's about it, you're on your own to get there. [21:33] <&Hebizuka> *Salavat has been added to your address book.* [21:33] <Reina> Okay, Salavat for somewhere safer and non-demon corrupted? Alright, and do you know any names of the demon towns? [21:33] <Reina> Just to know what to avoid, honest to gods! [21:34] * Reina takes a good, obvious gaze at the lucky citizen she's talking to. Here's hoping she's found a looker. [21:36] <~Tempest> [Citizen3] Salavat -is- a Demonic town, and that's all I know about it. If you want a more sensible town, there's Mire. It's kind of like Arnett, except instead of a big honking lab, there's just a bunch of warehouses. It's a quiet trading town where you should probably go if you're looking for stuff to buy and sell. [21:37] <&Hebizuka> *Mire has been added to your address book.* [21:38] <Reina> Ahhhhhhhh, alright. [21:38] <Reina> Tell ya what, handsome - won't you lend a pretty girl your name? [21:40] <~Tempest> [Citizen3] It's Maurice. And this is Shane and Tammy. [21:40] <~Tempest> *They both wave hi.* [21:43] <Reina> Nice. I'm Reina. Now, since you've all been so wonderfully kind to me, I'll make sure to come back and show you my appreciation. Will you three still be at the Gate? [21:44] <~Tempest> [Citizen3] No, there's frequent rotations. Can you imagine being here 24/7? Screw that. It might not be us you'll see next time. [21:45] <Reina> Then would a phone number suffice? I /hate/ to leave a debt unpaid, Maurice, and I can tell you're a pretty *hard* worker. [21:45] <~Tempest> [Citizen3] Uhhh, I'm not giving you my phone number. [21:47] <Reina> Ahhh - someone who knows what he wants, then. Well, I don't mind giving a show if you don't, Maurice. I don't even mind if Tammy and Shane join in. [21:47] <~Tempest> *Awkward silence. None of them reply.* [21:48] <Reina> No? Not a single taker? No soul stealing here, just a wonderful way to relax, gods' honor. [21:49] <~Tempest> [Citizen1] Anyone knows this girl? [21:49] <~Tempest> [Citizen2] Nah. [21:49] <~Tempest> [Citizen3] Nope. [21:49] <~Tempest> [Citizen1] Then uhh... No thanks? Can you go now? We uhh, we've got a job to do. [21:50] <Reina> Pfffft. And you three wondered why I wanted to go to Salavat. [21:50] <Reina> Have a good time, all. Enjoy yourselves. [21:51] * Reina heads out the door and into the wild, letting her natural swagger accentuate her hips and her big fluffy tail. [21:52] <&Hebizuka> *Which direction?* [21:53] <Reina> *Into the wilds, right? So, south.* [21:54] <&Hebizuka> *You are now in Arnett's Access corridor. You can see a big sign with the town's name, as well as a bunch of random old posters and advertisements. // North (previous): Town Gate - South: Towards the UA* [21:54] * Reina takes a skim through the posters and ads. There might be something of note here - peoples, phone numbers, places. [21:56] <&Hebizuka> *There isn't much of interest - it's mostly old posters advertising about mundane things such as "Don't leave town without a weapon", various ones advertising the merits and benefits of this and that product (mainly novel, expensive firearms, medical items, and even food ; who'd have thought that canned spaghetti was so vital for surviving in the UA?), and so on.* [21:57] <Reina> Mmm. Mire will probably have some more things to do. [21:57] <Reina> Or, wait, no, Mire's the boring place. [21:57] <Reina> Okay, so, Salavat it is. Past the Southern gates and here I go. [21:59] <&Hebizuka> *Are you sure you wish to leave Arnett for the UA? If you confirm, there is no going back until you reach the next town.* [22:00] <Reina> *Yes.* [22:00] <&Hebizuka> *You have left Arnett and ventured into the Uncivilized Area...* [22:01] <&Hebizuka> *You will now be traveling through the Uncivilized Area (UA) ; this is the traditional MazeWorld experience you have come to know and love in the past, with a few modern changes.* [22:02] <&Hebizuka> *When leaving a town for the UA, you must choose an intended destination. You may choose to search for Salavat, Mire, or search for a random new town, which may increase your traveling time.* [22:03] <Reina> *To Salavat.* [22:03] <&Hebizuka> *Since Salavat is a yet undiscovered town, your traveling time may be increased.* [22:03] <Reina> *Like I have a choice, let's get this show on the road.* [22:04] <&Hebizuka> *With your destination set, you must then choose your traveling style, which will affect your journey in several ways: it may affect how dangerous it is, how long until the next town (or the next stop, if something important comes on the way), and what your chances of finding an explorable area will be.* [22:04] <&Hebizuka> *The three different styles are Fast route, Safe route and Deep route. Fast: Speed+, Danger+, Explorables-. Safe: Danger-, Speed-, Explorables--. Deep: Explorables+, Speed--, Danger++.* [22:05] <Reina> *Safe. I have 20 rounds and not liking my chances.* [22:06] <&Hebizuka> *The next town is at a fair distance ; not too far, not too close.* [22:06] <&Hebizuka> *Do you confirm you want your traveling style to be Safe route?* [22:06] <Reina> *Yes, yes.* [22:09] <&Hebizuka> [Next rooms] Left: Empty forge, overgrown // Front: Dining hall, abandoned // Right: Empty shrine, abandoned [22:10] <Reina> Right. There might be some money left over. [22:13] <&Hebizuka> *An empty shrine. No way to tell what faction this shrine belonged to - the room is old and abandoned, with most of the furniture missing. Even the altar is missing. There is, however, a donation box - rotting, old, and broken, but it's there; and you can spot a few coins at the bottom. For some reason, there is also a kangaroo in the room, presumably part of the new local wildlife.* [22:15] * Reina does her best to not, you know, piss off the kangaroo, as she heads towards the donation box to scoop up the coins. [22:21] <&Hebizuka> *But the kangaroo is a violent, mean and dumb creature - and it just won't let you pick up those coins.* [22:21] <&Hebizuka> *The kangaroo engages you in a fight! Turn 1. What is your next move?* [22:24] <Reina> *Time to see if I'm... faster than a kangaroo. God fucking damn it.* [22:24] <Reina> *Shotgun, three shots, Kangaroo's head.* [22:26] <&Hebizuka> *Order this turn: Roo, You. Kangaroo's turn...* [22:26] <&Hebizuka> *The 'roo saunters towards you, just about to attempt punching you.* [22:26] <&Hebizuka> @bodyaim [22:26] <MazeBot> [Human] Hips, buttocks ; [Non-human] (LOWER) BODY group [22:26] <&Hebizuka> @roll 2d6 [22:26] <MazeBot> Hebizuka: 5 [22:27] <&Hebizuka> *Miss. The 'roo fails to hit you, leaving him wide open.* [22:27] <&Hebizuka> *Your turn. You may roll now.* [22:28] <Reina> @roll 3#2d6 [22:28] <MazeBot> Reina: 4;8;7 [22:30] <&Hebizuka> *Shots 1-3: Miss, Hit (6 pel), Hit (5 pel)* [22:30] <&Hebizuka> *Total: 2 hits (11 pellets hit)* [22:34] <&Hebizuka> *The kangaroo's head is ventilated - the cranium's contents are forcefully expelled, leaving the marsupial disfigured and just short of shotgun beheaded.* [22:34] <&Hebizuka> *In any way, it's dead.* [22:34] <&Hebizuka> Reina [Model 67] Kangaroo /H\ [B] [22:34] <&Hebizuka> *End of fight! (1 turn)* [22:35] <Reina> That was a waste of ammo. [22:35] * Reina pops in three shells to fill the Model 67 back up again, and takes the coins from the donation box for her trouble. [22:36] <&Hebizuka> [Money] 30 P$ [22:36] <&Hebizuka> *Total money carried: 30 P$ in pouch* [22:37] <&Hebizuka> [Reloading] S/S Model 67: +3 shells from Vest/Shells. [4+1/4, Buck] [22:37] <&Hebizuka> *The process took one turn.* [22:39] <Reina> Right, so - what's next? [22:39] <&Hebizuka> *Unless there is something else you need to do, you can simply state you're looking for the next doors.* [22:44] <Reina> What doors do we have here, then? [22:46] <&Hebizuka> [Next rooms] Left: Shower room, abandoned // Front: Pantry, abandoned // Right: Corridor [22:50] <Reina> Pantry it is. [22:54] <&Hebizuka> *An abandoned pantry, with its many shelves and compartments for storing food - though it does visibly look pretty old. There isn't any trace of food left in this room, unfortunately... but there is a weapon accessory on the floor.* [22:56] <Reina> What do we have here? [22:57] <&Hebizuka> [Weapon accessory] Weapon light: Inforce APL. Full battery life: 250 turns. Soft light. - [Battery: 92%] [22:59] <Reina> Meh, I can sell it. Into the backpack with you. [23:00] <&Hebizuka> [Pack/Main] 1/50 [23:05] <Reina> And back to the door grind. [23:11] <&Hebizuka> [Next rooms] Left: Clothing shop // Front: Storage area, abandoned // Right: Empty room, damaged [23:13] <Reina> Not gonna get anything worth a damn with 30 Parallers. Storage area it is. [23:15] <&Hebizuka> *The storage area is dusty and long abandoned - no signs of any loot here. There is an angel, smallsword at the hip, wandering about for some reason.* [23:16] <Reina> Ah! Hey there, handsome. Don't suppose you could point me to the nearest shrine? [23:16] <~Tempest> [Angel] Mind your manners, human! [23:17] <Reina> Oh come on, handsomeness is an objective fact! I was just asking for directions. [23:20] <~Tempest> [Angel] I have not been assigned to a shrine, so I cannot tell you where the closest one is. My mission is to wander the Mazes, and cleanse the uncouth filth. So unless you're here to seek more spiritual guidance - whether by words or by my blade, begone and return on your way, human! [23:21] <Reina> So, besides the obvious demonics and devil worshippers, what counts as uncouth filth? So I can keep away from such. [23:23] <~Tempest> [Angel] Anyone who sympathizes, by and large, with our enemies, and anyone who is straying off the right path and attacking or disrespecting us, Heaven Ltd, or our noble mission, is bound to be chased and put down by our forces. [23:24] <~Tempest> [Angel] The right path is difficult, human, but greatness and glory awaits the righteous. For all else, death and misery. Do not come close to the Demonic filth! It can only bring you ruin! [23:29] <Reina> So... why did you guys incorporate, again? An ltd. is designed to protect its constituents by only holding them accountable to what they're willing to put in. Isn't that just cowardice, asking to be protected from your own inability to have faith? [23:30] <~Tempest> *The angel completely pauses, unable to reply to that.* [23:30] <~Tempest> [Angel] ... Uh... well... That is... [23:32] <Reina> I mean, I can understand why /Hell/ would do it, they're literally a bag of dicks, but isn't trying to appeal to the common man by allowing them to only half-heartedly believe just allowing more weakness into their hearts? I feel like there can be a way to present a softer, more welcoming side to Heaven, but this cold businesslike mentality only encourages possible converts to avoid making a... [23:32] <Reina> ...decision. [23:33] <~Tempest> [Angel] *Shaking his head, unable to parse more of your words.* This is all nonsense! We, uh, we are not cowards, what are you suggesting? This is blasphemy, isn't it? Oh, Gods help me with you bureaucratic fucks! I'm a foot soldier, not a paper-pusher! [23:33] <~Tempest> [Angel] Address yourself to your local shrine maiden, not me! I'm DONE with you people! [23:33] <&Hebizuka> *The angel turns heels and prepares to leave the room. Unless you want to act first?* [23:33] <Reina> May I have your name before you go!? [23:34] <Reina> So that I can keep you in my heart as I pray! [23:34] <&Hebizuka> *He does not reply and slams the door on his way out.* [23:34] <&Hebizuka> *You are now alone in the room.* [23:34] <Reina> What a cunt. [23:34] <Reina> Alright, there's probably going to be /more/ teleportation bullshit. [23:34] <Reina> But I want to go through the same door he did. [23:35] <Reina> So, which door was that - right, left, or forward? [23:35] <&Hebizuka> *He has left through the left door ; there is no guarantee you will find the Angel by following him, though!* [23:35] <Reina> Might as well try it! [23:35] <Reina> Left door it is! [23:42] <&Hebizuka> *Before you decide which door you're going, here are the next rooms.* [23:42] <&Hebizuka> [Next rooms] Left: Dark room // Front: Pantry, abandoned // Right: Danchi, forsaken [23:46] <Reina> Ahh, damn it. This is a dumb move - left it is. [23:47] <&Hebizuka> *A completely dark room. You have no idea what's in front of you.* [23:48] <Reina> Hello! Anyone here? [23:48] <Reina> Mister Angel? I just wanted to talk a little longer! [23:49] <&Hebizuka> *No response. The silence is deafening.* [23:52] <Reina> Come on, Mister Angel, don't be a dick. [23:52] * Reina sighs as she takes out her weapon light from her bag to actually see what's going on. A waste of time, but she wouldn't put it past that winged freak to hide in a corner somewhere. [23:53] <&Hebizuka> *The process took one turn. You're now holding the Inforce APL in your hand, and you have turned it on to shed some light. [23:54] <&Hebizuka> *You discover an office room, with four desks, each one with a computer, and office clutter. The room is covered in dust and spider webs, and the computers and monitors have been shot up, presumably beyond repair. There doesn't appear to be anything of use here.* [23:54] <Reina> Le sigh. [23:54] <Reina> Alright, usual looting practices it is. There's probably something in the desks if I'm lucky. [23:55] <&Hebizuka> *The desks have long been emptied of their contents.* [23:55] <Reina> Welp. [23:55] * Reina turns off the flashlight and puts it back in her bag. If no one's here, then she can rest for a little while. [23:56] <&Hebizuka> *The Inforce APL has been turned off and placed in Pack/Main.* [23:56] <&Hebizuka> Checkout [23:56] <&Hebizuka> 4 rooms, 1 kill, 0 missions, 0 Amulets, 30 P$, 0 Runs
