From Mazeworld

[09:48] <&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.* [09:48] <&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.* [09:48] <~Tempest> [Medic] Hello? Can you hear me? [09:54] * Marisa__Kirisame nodded, looking around confused and seeming very much out of it, not able to remember hardly anything aside from her own name. [09:54] <~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? [09:56] * Marisa__Kirisame nodded again, brushing the hair out of her face so she could look at her more clearly. [09:58] <~Tempest> [Medic] I didn't quite hear you, and I cannot see you, but I'm going to assume from the good vital signs that you did hear me. I'll start with simple ones. Firstly, can you remember your full name, your gender and your age? [10:03] * Marisa__Kirisame assumed there was a camera somewhere. "Marisa.. Marisa Kirisame." she said after thinking for a moment. "Female, twenty.. i don't remember.." she answered, starting to sit up slightly more. [10:04] <~Tempest> [Medic] All right... Now, come closer to the TV monitor. I'll display choices for the next questions. [10:05] <&Hebizuka> *You hear the sound of keyboard clatter, then the medic's face disappears from the monitor, instead displaying text choices.* [10:05] <~Tempest> [Medic] What species are you among the choices there? Whichever is closest to reality. [10:05] <&Hebizuka> [Choose one] >Human >Halfling (subchoices) [10:10] * Marisa__Kirisame rather ungracefully sat up, then flopped forward, laying on her front and holding her head up with her hand. "Which i am or what? Human, at least if i remember right." [10:13] <~Tempest> [Medic] Human it is. All right... Now. I would do the next part myself with more advanced tools, but I had to bring in some more archaic measuring machines, and reference posters. I hope this will be enough. [10:13] <~Tempest> [Medic] Take a peek at the mirror in the corner, and tell me what you'd say your constitution would be. [10:13] <&Hebizuka> [Choose one] Average, Thin, Slender, Athletic, Muscular, Overweight, Large-size [10:16] * Marisa__Kirisame wondered just why this was all being recorded, and as well wondering if the medic was even a real person... "Slender i guess.." [10:16] <&Hebizuka> [Traits of your choice] Slender: More agile, but limbs are less tough. [10:16] <&Hebizuka> *Confirm?* [10:19] * Marisa__Kirisame looked confused at it for a moment, eventually replying. "Cancel, average i guess..." [10:21] <~Tempest> [Medic] Alright. Now for more superficial information - just for the sake of this file, use the equipment in the room to give answers to the next questions as the monitor asks them. It should be quick enough. [10:21] <&Hebizuka> [Indicate your height and weight.] [10:26] * Marisa__Kirisame slowly got up, still very much perplexed by all of this, quickly going to measure herself for the program. "158 cm, 52kg." she called back to the program as she walked back to it, sitting down on the bed. [10:27] <&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) [10:29] * Marisa__Kirisame rolled her eyes at this question. "Pearl i guess..." [10:30] <&Hebizuka> [Lastly, indicate your hair length and color, and your eye color.] [10:33] * Marisa__Kirisame wondered why they didn't just have a camera in here.. "Long..ish.. " she said, not sure what to call it, but it went about half way down her back. "Blond, and yellow." she added on, hoping she was done now. [10:40] <~Tempest> [Medic] Good. Everything seems to be OK, at least as far as appearance goes. We'll now check if your physical abilities are alright... [10:41] <&Hebizuka> *You will now decide your Primary statistics. You will be given points to spend across a few statistics; adjust as necessary.* [10:41] <&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.* [10:41] <&Hebizuka> Points to spend: 5 [10:41] <&Hebizuka> Natural Pain sensitivity: 0 pts - 100%. 1 pt = 5%. (LOWER is better) [10:41] <&Hebizuka> Natural Strength: 0 pts - 100%. 1 pt = 10%. (Higher is better) [10:41] <&Hebizuka> Maximum Pain before blackout: 0 pts - 100%. 1 pt = 5%. (Higher is better) [10:41] <&Hebizuka> Maximum Blood: 0 pts - 20. 1 pt = 1 blood. (Higher is better) [10:41] <&Hebizuka> Natural limb health modifier: 0 pts - 100%. 1 pt = 10%. (Higher is better) [10:55] * Marisa__Kirisame flopped back on the bed, thinking for quite a while after reading all of that. "Two to the first one, two to the third one.. and the last point to the last one." she finally answered as she sat back up. [10:56] <&Hebizuka> *As it stands, your choices are:* [10:56] <&Hebizuka> Natural Pain sensitivity: 2 pts - 90%. [10:56] <&Hebizuka> Natural Strength: 0 pts - 100%. [10:56] <&Hebizuka> Maximum Pain before blackout: 2 pts - 110%. [10:56] <&Hebizuka> Maximum Blood: 0 pts - 20. [10:56] <&Hebizuka> Natural limb health modifier: 1 pt - 110%. [10:56] <&Hebizuka> *Is this correct?* [10:57] * Marisa__Kirisame thought for a bit longer, then sighed. "Yes." [10:59] <&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 [11:06] <~Tempest> [Medic] Very well... You are in good physical condition. Now that I'm 99% sure your body is functioning properly, let's talk about skills... Specifically fighting skills. [11:06] <&Hebizuka> *You will now assign points towards combat skills, which will also influence what starting weapons you'll be assigned later.* [11:06] <&Hebizuka> Points to spend: 5 [11:06] <&Hebizuka> 1 point in any skill category = 50 Training Points (TPs) in that combat skill. [11:06] <&Hebizuka> 0 or 1 points leaves the skill level at Unskilled (low accuracy) [11:06] <&Hebizuka> 100 TPs/2 points required for Basic level (normal accuracy) [11:06] <&Hebizuka> 250 TPs/5 points required for Skilled level (improved accuracy) [11:06] <&Hebizuka> [11:06] <&Hebizuka> No skill can have less than 0 points spent - you can get no more than 5 points to distribute. [11:06] <&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.) [11:06] <&Hebizuka> [11:06] <&Hebizuka> Firearm skills: Precision rifle - Combat rifle - Shotgun - Conventional rifle - Machine gun - Submachine gun - Pistol - Auto pistol - Revolver [11:06] <&Hebizuka> Explosive skills: Grenade launcher - Rocket launcher - Hand grenade - Planted explosives [11:06] <&Hebizuka> Melee skills: Blunt - Sharp - Piercing - Non-gun ranged - Unarmed (martial arts) [11:22] * Marisa__Kirisame felt like she was being beaten with spreadsheets as she thought through all of this.. "I'll take two into Grenade launcher, two into Submachine gun, and one into Pistol." she finally said, really hoping she didn't end up getting into a close fight with that load out... [11:25] <&Hebizuka> *You will receive 100 TPs in Grenade Launcher (Basic skill), 100 TPs in Submachine gun (Basic skill) and 50 TPs in Pistol (Unskilled, but less work to do to raise to Basic). Is this correct?* [11:27] * Marisa__Kirisame sighed, not sure if she made the right choice. "Yes." [11:28] <~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? [11:28] <&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.* [11:30] <&Hebizuka> Clothing - For having something to put on your back, and for style. [11:30] <&Hebizuka> Top: None/Naked (+1 pt) - Yes (0 pt) [11:30] <&Hebizuka> Bottom: None/Naked (+1 pt) - Yes (0 pt) [11:30] <&Hebizuka> Footwear: None/Naked (+1 pt) - Yes (0 pt) [11:30] <&Hebizuka> Headgear (clothing): None/Naked or Yes (either choice is free) [11:36] * Marisa__Kirisame was tempted to put all her points into something cooler, but sighed. "Of course i want clothes and shoes. And i want my hat back! It cost a fortune and i know you have it somewhere!" [11:36] <~Tempest> [Medic] I'm afraid we don't have your old hat... [11:37] <&Hebizuka> [Make your selection, one per category.] [11:37] <&Hebizuka> Available tops: T-Shirt, Shirt with tie, Tracksuit jacket, Sarashi, Trench-coat, Duster coat, Parka [11:37] <&Hebizuka> Available bottoms: Jeans, Regular pants, Tracksuit pants, Shorts, Leather pants, Mountain pants, Cargo pants (plain) [11:37] <&Hebizuka> Available footwear: Regular shoes, Running shoes, Hiking shoes [11:37] <&Hebizuka> Available headgear: Baseball cap, Beret, Fedora, Bandana, Boonie hat [11:44] * Marisa__Kirisame found the choice in clothes rather boring. "I guess i'll take the running shoes, duster coat, and leather pants. And i know you have my hat somewhere and i want it back!" she said, grabbing the monitor and shaking it angrily. [11:45] <~Tempest> [Medic] No need to brutalize the equipment! We've suffered enough damage as is! [11:45] <&Hebizuka> Armor - For actually protecting yourself [11:45] <&Hebizuka> Body armor: (None) - Flak jacket (-2 pts) - Type-2 Kevlar vest (-4 pts) - Type-3 Kevlar vest (-6 pts) [11:45] <&Hebizuka> Headgear: (None) - M1 Helmet (-1 pts) - Twaron helmet (-2 pts) - SPECTRA helmet (-3 pts) [11:45] <&Hebizuka> Arms addons: (None) - Elbow pads (0 pt) - Arm guards (-1) - Twaron arm pads (-2) [11:45] <&Hebizuka> Legs addons: (None) - Knee pads (0 pt) - Leg guards (-1) - Twaron leg pads (-2) [11:51] * Marisa__Kirisame thought she'd save her points for now. "I guess i'll take the elbow and knee pads... And i still want my hat back.. " she grumbled. [11:52] <&Hebizuka> Load-Bearing Equipment (LBE) - For actually carrying items and having an inventory [11:52] <&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) [11:52] <&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) [11:52] <&Hebizuka> Tactical vest: No vest (0pt) - Competition vest (-1pt) - MK64 Trooper (-2pt) - VersaForce (-3pt) [12:03] * Marisa__Kirisame wondered what the deal with all these points was anyway. "I'll take the student's backpack and the trooper vest." she said, seeming like she knew less and less of what she was doing with each level of this. [12:07] <&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. [12:07] <&Hebizuka> Grenade launcher: M79 (loaded with HE) + 6x 40mm NATO, M386 HE [12:07] <&Hebizuka> Submachine gun 1: PM-63 RAK (9x18mm Makarov) + 3x 15-rd magazines + 50x rounds (9x18mm Makarov FMJ) [12:07] <&Hebizuka> Submachine gun 2: H&K UMP-9 (9x19mm Para) + 3x 30-rd magazines + 60x rounds (9x19mm Para FMJ) [12:07] <&Hebizuka> Pistol 1: Beretta 84FS (.380 ACP) + 3x 13-rd magazines + 50x roudns (.380 ACP FMJ) [12:08] <&Hebizuka> (rounds*) [12:13] * Marisa__Kirisame was happy there where pictures on the screen this time, but sad she had what was given the choice of the grenade launcher she was very happy to see and the choice of thee ugly smaller guns... "I'l have the M79, ..and the UMP-9 i guess." she said slightly reluctantly. [12:15] <&Hebizuka> *Let's review your choices.* [12:15] <&Hebizuka> Equipment selection: [12:15] <&Hebizuka> Top: Duster coat [12:15] <&Hebizuka> Bottom: Leather pants [12:15] <&Hebizuka> Footwear: Running shoes [12:15] <&Hebizuka> Headgear (clothing): None [12:15] <&Hebizuka> Body armor: None [12:15] <&Hebizuka> Headgear (armor): None [12:15] <&Hebizuka> Arms addons: Elbow pads [12:15] <&Hebizuka> Legs addons: Knee pads [12:15] <&Hebizuka> Backpack: Student's backpack (+1 pt) [12:15] <&Hebizuka> Utility belt: None (+2 pt) [12:15] <&Hebizuka> Tactical vest: Mk64 Trooper (-2 pt) [12:15] <&Hebizuka> Weapons: [12:15] <&Hebizuka> > M79 package [12:15] <&Hebizuka> > UMP-9 package (-4 pt) [12:15] <&Hebizuka> Unspent points: 2 (300 P$) [12:16] <&Hebizuka> *You can confirm, or make adjustments.* [12:21] * Marisa__Kirisame thought for a moment, apparently having overlooked something. "Can i still get a flak jacket and a boonie hat?" she asked, looking around for where all of this stuff would come from. [12:23] <&Hebizuka> Top: Duster coat [12:23] <&Hebizuka> Bottom: Leather pants [12:23] <&Hebizuka> Footwear: Running shoes [12:23] <&Hebizuka> Headgear (clothing): Boonie hat [12:23] <&Hebizuka> Body armor: Flak jacket (-2 pt) [12:23] <&Hebizuka> Headgear (armor): None [12:23] <&Hebizuka> Arms addons: Elbow pads [12:23] <&Hebizuka> Legs addons: Knee pads [12:23] <&Hebizuka> Backpack: Student's backpack (+1 pt) [12:23] <&Hebizuka> Utility belt: None (+2 pt) [12:23] <&Hebizuka> Tactical vest: Mk64 Trooper (-2 pt) [12:23] <&Hebizuka> Weapons: [12:23] <&Hebizuka> > M79 package [12:23] <&Hebizuka> > UMP-9 package (-4 pt) [12:23] <&Hebizuka> Unspent points: 0 [12:24] <&Hebizuka> *Is this correct?* [12:24] * Marisa__Kirisame nods. "...Yes." she said, clearly nervous, and wondering why she needs all of this stuff... [12:30] <~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. [12:30] <&Hebizuka> *The television screen shuts down.* [12:33] * Marisa__Kirisame looked at it oddly as it turned off. "Well now would be nice, seeing as i'm totally nude!" she said, not sure if it could here her or not. [12:39] <&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.* [12:39] <~Tempest> [Medic] Good morning, Marisa. [12:41] * Marisa__Kirisame is at this point asleep on the bed again, she quickly pulls the sheets over herself. "So you aren't just a program! Why are you giving me all this stuff? What happened? How did i even get here?" she asked, slowly getting up and wrapping the sheet around herself. [12:45] <~Tempest> [Medic] *Long sigh.* Yes, I figured those would be the questions you'd be asking. To make it simple, you died. Technically you died in your original world, but the Administrator - the being who's in charge here, and coincidentally, my boss - has seen fit to, well, bring you back. [12:46] <~Tempest> [Medic] What happened precisely is that she captured your soul and asked me to build a new body for you to place it in. That's what happened. [12:47] * Marisa__Kirisame "........Cool! How'd i die? And why all the free guns and armor? Let me guess, i have to fight for you or something and they're not really free, are they?" [12:48] <~Tempest> [Medic] Well... We'll come to that later. To answer your questions, the gear is because the Mazes, the realm you are now in, is a dangerous place. [12:50] <~Tempest> [Medic] Either way, no, it's not for me you have to work for... In actuality I don't think you're under any particular obligations, other than to hear me. [12:53] * Marisa__Kirisame nodded. "Thanks then, so i guess i'm just free to do whatever now?" she asked, feeling like this was too good to be true. [12:53] <~Tempest> [Medic] Firstly, hear me otu. The Admin says you are the Contestant, a title that bears a certain amount of importance here. Your objective is to find four ancient artifacts, said to have been forged by deities - the Cardinal Amulets. [12:53] <~Tempest> (out*) [12:53] <~Tempest> [Medic] Legend says they're artifacts of power, but to most people it's folk tales and legends that only shrine maidens and fervent religious followers truly believe in. I just cannot help you on how to find them or even give a clue on where they are, because I don't have any fricking idea. Admin said that it's your job to find all four - once you do, you can invoke them, and you'll be [12:53] <~Tempest> allowed to return home, safe and sound, alive again. [12:53] <&Hebizuka> (line break) [12:54] <~Tempest> [Medic] That's for what you're supposed to do. In reality, you're free to do as you please once I'll let you out of here. Anything else? [12:56] * Marisa__Kirisame nods, having heard she's the chosen one before. "And what if i die again? Can you just bring me back again?" [12:56] <~Tempest> [Medic] Unfortunately, no. This is a second chance, but you're not invincible. If you die again, that's it, I'm afraid. [12:58] * Marisa__Kirisame seemed slightly saddened by that. "Ok.. Did you ever find my hat?" she asked, seeming to care far more about it then any normal person. [12:59] <~Tempest> *The medic shakes his head.* [12:59] <~Tempest> [Medic] Now, these crates, or rather what's inside, is what's yours. There's your gear in there, feel free to dress up and equip yourself. [13:00] <&Hebizuka> *First crate:* [13:00] <&Hebizuka> =Load-bearing equipment= [13:00] <&Hebizuka> [LBE] (Backpack) Student's backpack: Capacity 30 units [13:00] <&Hebizuka> [LBE] (Tactical vest) MK64 Trooper: Capacity 8 units + Ammo (6 mags only, max tier: Large) [13:01] * Marisa__Kirisame grumpily gets up and starts rummaging through the boxes.
