From Mazeworld

[14:45] <&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.* [14:45] <&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.* [14:46] <~Tempest> [Medic] Hello? Can you hear me? [14:47] <Arctic> Nah, I'm as bloody deaf as. Can't hear a bloody word you're sayin'. [14:47] <~Tempest> [Medic] *Dry tone* On top of good vital signs, your sense of sarcasm is pristine. That's a good sign. [14:48] <~Tempest> [Medic] I know you must be disoriented right now but I have important questions to ask, which will help me determine if, er... everything went well. Once this is dealt with, I'll explain all that I can, but my questions first, understood? [14:48] <Arctic> Considering my only other option is to stick my fingers in my ears and yell at the top of my lungs, not much other choice. [14:49] <~Tempest> [Medic] Good. You catch on quickly. I'll start with simple ones. Firstly, can you remember your full name, your gender and your age? [14:50] <Arctic> Desuta Guneria. Male. Twenty... Seven. Last I checked. [14:50] <&Hebizuka> *The sound of keyboard clatter is heard, briefly.* [14:53] <~Tempest> [Medic] Okay. Now, come closer to the TV monitor. I'm going to display choices for the next questions. Can you tell me which species you are, or whatever is closest? [14:53] <&Hebizuka> [Choose one] >Human >Halfling (subchoices) [14:54] <Arctic> Halfing. [14:54] <&Hebizuka> [Select your subspecies] Feline (Cat), Canine (Dog/Wolf/Fox), Lagomorph (Rabbit), Muridae (Mouse/Rat), Squamata (Snake), Salientia (Frog), Equine (Horse/Pony) [14:55] <Arctic> Canine, Fox. [14:55] <Arctic> Lupine really. [14:58] <&Hebizuka> [Info] As a canine halfling, you are slightly more sensitive to pain, but you gain a powerful natural bite attack - use it if you have no weapons and fists and feet do not suffice. [14:59] <~Tempest> [Medic] Normally, for the rest of this, I'd do this myself with more advanced machines, but we've had a lot of equipment damage recently.... So I brought in some old measurement machines, reference posters, and a bunch of mirrors. You're going to use them for the questions I'll ask. [15:00] <Arctic> Sounds about right. I'm guessing you want height and weight then. [15:00] <~Tempest> [Medic] Everything in order, if you don't mind. Take a peek at the mirror in the corner, and tell me what you'd say your constitution would be. [15:00] <&Hebizuka> [Choose one] Average, Thin, Slender, Athletic, Muscular, Overweight, Large-size [15:01] <Arctic> Athletic. Or maybe.. Nah, definitely athletic. [15:02] <&Hebizuka> [Info] As an athletic person, you have higher strength, but your daily food intake is higher than most people - you may need to eat more. [15:04] <~Tempest> [Medic] Excellent. Now, for the more superficial information. There's various equipment as I said, please use it to give me various measurements and data as the monitor will ask you. [15:04] <~Tempest> [Medic] This is merely for a more complete report. [15:04] <&Hebizuka> [Indicate your height and weight.] [15:05] <Arctic> 178cm, Five foot 10. Around 75 kilos. [15:06] <&Hebizuka> [Skin color? Select one] Diamond (Albino), Opal (Nordic, pale white), Pearl (Caucasian), Peridot (Arabid), Heliodor (East asian), Citrine (Malay, filipino), Carnelian (Latino), Axinite (Native American), Onyx (Black), None of them (specify which color) [15:08] <Arctic> Pearl, most likely. [15:09] <&Hebizuka> [Indicate your hair length and color, and your eye color.] [15:10] <Arctic> Close cropped, some form of grey-brown. With brown eyes too. [15:10] <~Tempest> [Medic] Alright. You seem to -look- ... yourself, for lack of a better word. At least in appearance. Now, we will move on to check if your physical abilities are normal. Still using the monitor for this. [15:11] <Arctic> Sounds like /fun/! *sarcasm intensifies* [15:11] <&Hebizuka> *You will now decide your Primary statistics. You will be given points to spend across a few statistics; adjust as necessary.* [15:11] <&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.* [15:12] <&Hebizuka> Points to spend: 5 [15:12] <&Hebizuka> Natural Pain sensitivity: 0 pts - 100%. 1 pt = 5%. Lower is better. [15:12] <&Hebizuka> Natural Strength: 0 pts - 100%. 1 pt = 10%. Higher is better. [15:12] <&Hebizuka> Maximum Pain before blackout: 0 pts - 100%. 1 pt = 5%. Higher is better. [15:12] <&Hebizuka> Maximum Blood: 0 pts - 20. 1 pt = 1 blood. Higher is better. [15:12] <&Hebizuka> Natural limb health modifier: 0 pts - 100%. 1 pt = 10%. Higher is better. [15:15] <Arctic> +1 in Nat Pain, +2 in Max Pain, +1 Nat limb health. [15:16] <&Hebizuka> *That leaves you with one more point to spend elsewhere.* [15:17] <Arctic> So it does. +1 to Nat Strength then. [15:18] <&Hebizuka> Natural Pain sensitivity: +1 pts - 105%. [15:18] <&Hebizuka> Natural Strength: +1 pts - 120%. [15:18] <&Hebizuka> Maximum Pain before blackout: +2 pts - 110%. [15:18] <&Hebizuka> Maximum Blood: 0 pts - 20. [15:18] <&Hebizuka> Natural limb health modifier: +1 pts - 110%. [15:18] <&Hebizuka> *Confirm your choices?* [15:18] <Arctic> Confirmed.. [15:22] <&Hebizuka> [Info] At 110% Limb Health modifier, your limb health map is different. Here is the max HP for all of your limbs. Head: 11 - Torso: 44 - Hips: 33 - Arms and Legs: 22 - Hands and Feet: 17 [15:25] <~Tempest> [Medic] Very well... You are in excellent physical shape. Now that I'm 99% sure your body is functioning properly, let's talk about skills... Specifically fighting skills. [15:26] <Arctic> Fighting huh.. You don't mean hand to hand do you? [15:27] <~Tempest> [Medic] Not only. This is a dangerous place, you'll want to make sure you can use weapons. As before, use the computer and answer honestly. [15:28] <Arctic> Uh huh.. [15:28] <&Hebizuka> *You will now assign points towards combat skills, which will also influence what starting weapons you'll be assigned later.* [15:30] <Arctic> Alrighty. Let's do this then. [15:31] <&Hebizuka> Points to spend: 5 [15:31] <&Hebizuka> 1 point in any skill category = 50 Training Points (TPs) in that combat skill. [15:31] <&Hebizuka> 0 or 1 points leaves the skill level at Unskilled (low accuracy) [15:31] <&Hebizuka> 100 TPs/2 points required for Basic level (normal accuracy) [15:31] <&Hebizuka> 250 TPs/5 points required for Skilled level (improved accuracy) [15:31] <&Hebizuka> [15:31] <&Hebizuka> No skill can have less than 0 points spent - you can get no more than 5 points to distribute. [15:31] <&Hebizuka> Each weapon type represents one skill ; there is a total of 17 combat skills, not 3. (E.g. points are placed in "Precision rifle", not "Firearms", and so on.) [15:31] <&Hebizuka> [15:31] <&Hebizuka> Firearm skills: Precision rifle - Combat rifle - Shotgun - Conventional rifle - Machine gun - Submachine gun - Pistol - Auto pistol - Revolver [15:31] <&Hebizuka> Explosive skills: Grenade launcher - Rocket launcher - Hand grenade - Planted explosives [15:31] <&Hebizuka> Melee skills: Blunt - Sharp - Piercing - Non-gun ranged - Unarmed (martial arts) [15:33] <Arctic> 3 points in pistol, 1 in revolver, and 1 in planted explosives. [15:34] <&Hebizuka> *You will receive 150 TPs in Pistol (raising to Basic with less work towards Skilled), 50 TPs in Revolver (Unskilled) and 50 TPs in Explosive Ordnance (Unskilled). Confirm?* [15:34] <Arctic> Confirmed. [15:37] <~Tempest> [Medic] All good. I don't suppose you want to stay naked all day, so let's assign you some equipment. Pay close attention here, alright? [15:37] <Arctic> Yeah, cause I'm gonna shove my fingers in my ears now, when I want bloody clothes. [15:38] <&Hebizuka> *You have 5 points to spend across ALL equipment categories, including weapons, so choose wisely. You will get the opportunity to review your choices before confirming.* [15:38] <&Hebizuka> Clothing - For having something to put on your back, and for style. [15:38] <&Hebizuka> Top: None/Naked (+1 pt) - (Yes) [15:38] <&Hebizuka> Available tops: T-Shirt, Shirt with tie, Tracksuit jacket, Sarashi, Trench-coat, Duster coat, Parka [15:38] <&Hebizuka> Bottom: None/Naked (+1 pt) - (Yes) [15:38] <&Hebizuka> Available bottoms: Jeans, Regular pants, Tracksuit pants, Shorts, Leather pants, Mountain pants, Cargo pants (plain) [15:38] <&Hebizuka> Footwear: None/Naked (+1 pt) - (Yes) [15:38] <&Hebizuka> Available footwear: Regular shoes, Running shoes, Hiking shoes [15:38] <&Hebizuka> Headgear: (None/Naked) - (Yes) ; none of the choices are armor [15:38] <&Hebizuka> Available headgear: Baseball cap, Beret, Fedora, Bandana, Boonie hat [15:42] <Arctic> Trench coat. Regular pants. And... Hiking shoes. *cue muttering* Woulda preferred some damn boots.. [15:44] <&Hebizuka> *No headwear?* [15:45] <Arctic> No headwear. [15:45] <&Hebizuka> Armor - For actually protecting yourself [15:45] <&Hebizuka> Body armor: None - Flak jacket (-2 pts) - Type-2 Kevlar vest (-4 pts) - Type-3 Kevlar vest (-6 pts) [15:45] <&Hebizuka> Headgear: None - M1 Helmet (-1 pts) - Twaron helmet (-2 pts) - SPECTRA helmet (-3 pts) [15:45] <&Hebizuka> Arms addons: None - Elbow pads (0 pt) - Arm guards (-1) - Twaron arm pads (-2) [15:45] <&Hebizuka> Legs addons: None - Knee pads (0 pt) - Leg guards (-1) - Twaron leg pads (-2) [15:49] <Arctic> ...None. I'll be fine. [15:49] <&Hebizuka> *No armor at all?* [15:50] <&Hebizuka> *Your call.* [15:50] <Arctic> No armor.

[15:54] <&Hebizuka> *Backpacks are for heavy duty carrying, but accessing items in them takes a while - it's hard to reach what's in your back, after all.* [15:55] <&Hebizuka> *While you can put items in your backpack without problems, if you need to reach for something inside, you will have to set it down (an action that costs 1 turn). Normally it's not a problem, but during combat it can be an annoyance.* [15:55] <&Hebizuka> *Vests, belts, and leg rigs (not displayed) are smaller and have less capacity, but allow you to access items immediately, which is useful during combat.* [15:55] <Arctic> Acknowledged. [15:55] <&Hebizuka> Weapons - For combat and self-defense. The packages shown below correspond to the weapon skills you have put points into. You can select ONE for free, any extra package costs 4 pts. [15:56] <&Hebizuka> *At this point, you actually have 6 points to spend ; you can afford 2 weapon packages as listed below, if you wish to.* [15:57] <&Hebizuka> Pistol 1: Beretta 84FS (.380 ACP) + 3 full mags + 50 rounds [15:57] <&Hebizuka> Pistol 2: Beretta M9 (9x19mm) + 3 full 15-rd mags + 50 rounds [15:57] <&Hebizuka> Revolver 1: S&W Model 10 (.38 Special) + 3x speedloader + 50 rounds [15:59] <Arctic> Berettas huh.. I'll take the pair. [16:00] <&Hebizuka> *You have 2 unspent points. You can review your choices and adjust your purchases, or confirm - all unspent points are converted into money, at a rate of 150 P$ per 1 point.* [16:01] <&Hebizuka> *Review your selections? Or confirm immediately?* [16:09] <Arctic> Belt to Gunfighter.

[16:10] <~Tempest> [Medic] Got all of your choices. Thanks for keeping up with me and my questionnaire. I will be coming in person to deliver your equipment - just give me the time to gather it for you. [16:11] <Arctic> Then I get to bug you with my questions I'm guessing. [16:11] <&Hebizuka> *The television screen shuts down.* [16:12] <Arctic> *And thus, Dez waited..* [16:15] <&Hebizuka> *After a little while, the medic shows up in person, pushing a cart inside of the room. There are three boxes inside of the cart - presumably containing your gear.* [16:15] <~Tempest> [Medic] Good morning, Desuta. [16:16] <Desuta> Welcome to the Naked Fox, may I take your order? [16:16] <~Tempest> [Medic] Very funny. *Dry* [16:16] <~Tempest> [Medic] Take a peek at your gear and take what you need. [16:17] <Desuta> *Nods, and goes to the gear* Hmm. *cue gear inspections, the clothing came first.* [16:18] <&Hebizuka> *You will see event lines, which are lines containing information about items, and are designed to be readily copy-pasted.* [16:19] <&Hebizuka> *Edit your sheet as needed with the items you intend to take - and don't forget to clearly announce what you are taking and if you're wearing/equipping it or placing it in a piece of LBE, like a backpack. This is so both sides (GM and player) see the same inventory.* [16:19] <&Hebizuka> = Clothing = [16:19] <&Hebizuka> [Clothing] Top - Trench-coat (Upper body, Lower body, Arms, Legs, Crotch) - AC: C3 - Blunt-resistant, Sharp-resistant, Piercing-resistant - Weight: 9 - [Cond: Brand new] [16:19] <&Hebizuka> [Clothing] Bottom - Regular pants (Lower body, Legs, Crotch) - AC: C2 - Blunt-resistant, Sharp-resistant - Weight: 3 - [Cond: Brand new] [16:19] <&Hebizuka> [Clothing] Footwear - Hiking shoes - AC: C3 - Blunt-resistant, Sharp-resistant, Piercing-resistant - Weight: 9 - [Cond: Brand new] [16:20] <Desuta> Taking and wearing the three outfits. [16:21] <&Hebizuka> *Copy and paste the event lines on the relevant section of your inventory.* [16:22] <Desuta> And done, next box! LBE would be logical. [16:22] <&Hebizuka> = Load-bearing = [16:22] <&Hebizuka> [LBE] (Backpack) Student's backpack: Capacity 30 units [16:22] <&Hebizuka> [LBE] (Utility belt) Gunfighter belt: Capacity 3 units + Key items (Can carry key items), Ammo 1 (4 pistol mags only, max tier: Small), Ammo 2 (S-ldr and S-strip only, max 4) [16:22] <&Hebizuka> [LBE] (Tactical vest) Competition vest: Capacity 3 units + Ammo 1 (2 mags only, max tier: Large), Ammo 2 (2 pistol mags only, max tier: Small), Ammo 3 (Shotgun shells only, max 20) [16:25] <Desuta> Taking and equipping all.

First picking up the 92, gently removing the magazine, and cracking the 9mm box, and topping up the magazine with the extra round, to bring the mag back up to 15. After putting it down, he repeated the action with the 84FS, bringing that up to 13 as well. Then, he placed both the ammunition boxes into his backpack. Next, the spare magazines. [16:51] <Desuta> Each of the 92 mags went into his Gunslinger belt, while each 84 mag went into the two pistol mag pouches, and one generic mag pouch. Wordlessly equipping each pistol on his person. "Alright. That should be good.." [16:51] <&Hebizuka> *One moment...* [16:55] <&Hebizuka> *Whenever your inventory is updated, I will give reminders on how full each LBE currently is. It should normally match what you see on your sheet - if there is any discrepancies, notify me.* [16:55] <&Hebizuka> [Tacvest/Mags 1] 1/2 mags [16:55] <&Hebizuka> [Tacvest/Mags 2] 2/2 mags [16:55] <&Hebizuka> [Belt/Mags] 3/4 mags [16:56] <&Hebizuka> [Pack/Main] 1/30 [16:57] <&Hebizuka> *All good on the inventory?* [17:09] <Desuta> Inventory is good. [17:12] <~Tempest> [Medic] Okay then. We're finished with the things I want you to do, as far as I'm concerned. Now, you may ask any questions you have on your mind, I'll try to answer as best as I can. [17:14] <Desuta> "Two major ones. What happened? Where am I?" [18:46] <~Tempest> Checkout!
