From Mazeworld

[13:42] <&Hebizuka> *Welcome back to MzW, Jonah. You have visited 7 rooms. Next special room is next door (Mission), so just type !mrooms1.* [13:43] <Jonah> !mrooms1 [13:43] <&Hebizuka> [ Jonah ] Unique door: 619 - Roomstyle: 453 - Enemy strength: 4 /6 [13:43] * Jonah grimly preps her shotgun, the sheer weight of the Remington a cold comfort in her hands. [13:43] <Jonah> CHARGE. [13:45] <&Hebizuka> *You enter a shooting range. You see three citizens groupes together, apparently concerned by a problem judging by the tone of the discussion ongoing. They don't seem to carry anything on their person, but there are two firearms laid out on a table next to them.* [13:47] <Jonah> *What are they saying?* [13:48] <~SU_Tempest> [Citz1] ...not showing up? [13:48] <~SU_Tempest> [Citz2] Yeah, he just called me. Said something about wife problems. [13:48] <~SU_Tempest> [Citz3] Oh man. We were meant to have the shooting contest of the century! But it's just not the same thing if we're not four! [13:49] <Jonah> *This is such a setup.* [13:49] <Jonah> *STill, might as well play along.* [13:50] <Jonah> Hey, uhm - I overheard you guys talking about needing a fourth person? [13:50] <~SU_Tempest> [Citz2] Huh? [13:50] <~SU_Tempest> [Citz1] Oh, yeah! But uh first ,who are you, miss uh, knight lady miss? [13:51] <Jonah> Oh, Im, terribly sorry - I've forgotten my manners! [13:51] * Jonah GALLANTLY BOWS. [13:51] <&Hebizuka> *Your armor rattles and clangs.* [13:52] <&Hebizuka> *One of the citizens steps back.* [13:52] <Jonah> "I'm Jade, Knight-in-training! Unfortunately, the Academy was out of swords, so I was sent here to learn how to use a gun." [13:52] <Jonah> All I really know is to target the center and pull the trigger. [13:53] <~SU_Tempest> [Citz1] The... what? [13:53] <~SU_Tempest> [Citz3] Nevermind about that. We could probably have another game if she's here. [13:54] <~SU_Tempest> [Citz1] You're new with firearms, right? [13:54] <Jonah> Yes, entirely. If you could just show me the ropes, I'd be happy to join the contest with the rest of you. [13:55] <~SU_Tempest> (oh btw, don't forget to join #mzwbeta ) [13:59] * Jonah pulls out poorly loved, poorly used ACS Hezi SM-1 assault rifle from her backpack as well. [13:59] <~SU_Tempest> [Citz1] Aight. We'll have a little fun with target shooting. But don't take your own weapons out, you'll use ours! [13:59] <~SU_Tempest> [Citz1] If you're new, save your own ammo. [14:00] <Jonah> Also, I stumbled upon this on my way here. Could any of you teach me how to take better care of - oh, really? [14:00] <Jonah> Wow, that's - thank you very much! [14:00] <&Hebizuka> *Another of the shooters presses a button on the wall, and up comes a steel target. It is as tall as a human, shaped like a human, and is even painted to look like one. But it's still a flat steel target.* [14:02] <~SU_Tempest> [Citz1] All right, all right. Nothing like a situational exercise, ain't it right? First, let's have you try this. [14:02] <Jonah> *The question remains - is it male or female?* [14:02] <&Hebizuka> *It's shaped like a highly stereotypical male.* [14:03] <~SU_Tempest> *You're passed a weapon, but it's empty.* [14:03] <~SU_Tempest> [Weapon] Class 3 - Ruger Mark III pistol | .22 Long Rifle - Semi-auto | No accessory | Mark III 10-round mag, +1 | Weight: 3 - [0+0/10] [14:03] <Jonah> Thank you, sir. Uhm - what is it? [14:03] * Jonah examines the gun, trying to - oh okay. [14:03] <~SU_Tempest> [Citz1] As you can see, a pistol. Though I haven't given you ammunition yet. For this game, you will be given two mags, which is 20 rounds. Every body part on the target is worth points. [14:04] <~SU_Tempest> [Citz1] Torso is 10 points. Arms and legs, 4. Hands and feet, 5. Shoot the balls and you get 30. Shoot the head, 50. [14:04] <~SU_Tempest> [Citz1] Score the most points you can, but remember... The head, the crotch, and the hands and feet are harder to hit. [14:05] <~SU_Tempest> [Citz1] Got it all? [14:06] <Jonah> I... I think so, sir. [14:06] <Jonah> But if the limbs are harder to target, why do they offer less points? [14:07] <~SU_Tempest> [Citz1] Just the hands and feet. Because in an actual situation you will not deal as much damage, and shooting hands, feet, arms, legs... all of that isn't what you wanna do for a kill. However it could be a good exercise! [14:07] <~SU_Tempest> [Citz1] When you're ready, tell me and I'll pass you the ammo. [14:10] * Jonah falls into a shooting stance, getting used to the pistol's weight and grip in her hands. [14:10] <Jonah> Ready.\ [14:11] <&Hebizuka> *The three citizens chuckle. One of them carefully slips a magazine in the empty weapon.* [14:11] <~SU_Tempest> [Citz1] Probably a little easier with the ammo, ain't it? *grin* [14:11] <~SU_Tempest> *He then pulls on the slide before letting you readjust.* [14:12] <&Hebizuka> *Combat tutorial part 1. You have a semi-automatic pistol. In order to announce your target, you must state which weapon to use, which target, then how many shots. For this tutorial, you won't need to announce the weapon, but it never hurts to always announce it.* [14:12] <&Hebizuka> *Turn 1. Whenever you are ready, announce your attack.* [14:12] <Jonah> Eheh. Sorry. [14:13] <Jonah> *Ruger Mark 3 Pistol, groin region, 3 shots. [14:13] <Jonah> *Ruger Mark 3 Pistol, groin region, 3 shots.* [14:13] <&Hebizuka> *When you are told to roll, you may make the roll and see if your attack succeeded. Since you fired 3 rounds, type @roll 3#2d6.* [14:14] <&Hebizuka> *Adjust the number before the # so that it matches the amount of rounds (or bursts, IF your weapon has burst mode) fired).* [14:14] <&Hebizuka> *Your turn. You may roll.* [14:15] <Jonah> @roll 3#2d6 [14:15] <MazeBot> Jonah: 5;9;6 [14:16] <&Hebizuka> *Shots 1-3: Miss, Hit, Miss.* [14:16] <&Hebizuka> *Score: 30 points (+30)* [14:16] <~SU_Tempest> [Citz1] Straight for the nuts, huh? [14:16] <~SU_Tempest> [Citz2] It's strange, people always shoot the nuts. [14:17] <Jonah> A girl's gotta know how to protect herself! [14:17] <Jonah> Where would you fire, sirs? [14:17] <~SU_Tempest> [Citz2] Straight in the head! [14:17] <~SU_Tempest> [Citz1] Haha, he's a crazy fucker for sure. Anyway, keep shooting! [14:17] <Jonah> Head it is! [14:17] <Jonah> *Ruger Mark 3 Pistol, head region, 3 shots.* [14:18] <&Hebizuka> *Turn 2. You may roll.* [14:19] <Jonah> @roll 3#2d6 [14:19] <MazeBot> Jonah: 6;8;4 [14:19] <&Hebizuka> *Shots 1-3: Miss, Hit, Miss.* [14:19] <&Hebizuka> *Score: 80 points (+50)* [14:20] <~SU_Tempest> [Citz2] Now we're talking. Boom! Headshot! [14:20] <Jonah> I think I'm getting the hang of this... [14:20] <&Hebizuka> *Turn 3. What's your next move?* [14:20] <Jonah> *Am I allowed to alternate between different regions in a single move?* [14:21] <&Hebizuka> *No; you would need an accessory for that.* [14:21] <Jonah> *Ruger Mark 3 Pistol, head region, 4 shots.* [14:21] <&Hebizuka> *You may roll.* [14:21] <Jonah> @roll 4#2d6 [14:21] <MazeBot> Jonah: 8;10;6;9 [14:21] <&Hebizuka> *Shots 1-4: Hit, Hit, Miss, Hit.* [14:21] <&Hebizuka> *Triple headshot, how about that!* [14:22] <&Hebizuka> *Score: 230 points (+150)* [14:22] <Jonah> ...Holy shit did I just do that. [14:22] <&Hebizuka> *Your Mark III is now empty.* [14:22] <~SU_Tempest> [Citz2] DAMN NICE. [14:22] <~SU_Tempest> [Citz1] All right, let me reload your weapon... [14:23] <&Hebizuka> *The citizen removes the empty mag, and slides in a new, full one before giving it back to you. You have 10 more rounds.* [14:23] <~SU_Tempest> [Citz1] Going hot. Whenever you're ready. [14:23] <Jonah> *Ruger Mark 3 Pistol, head region, 5 shots.* [14:24] <&Hebizuka> *You may roll.* [14:24] <Jonah> @roll 5#2d6 [14:24] <MazeBot> Jonah: 10;7;7;7;7 [14:24] <&Hebizuka> *Oh maaaaan.* [14:24] <&Hebizuka> *Shots 1-5: Hit, Miss, Miss, Miss, Miss (with amazing consistency.)* [14:24] * Jonah proceeds to land one right between the eyes and then alternatingly graze the ears. [14:24] <&Hebizuka> *Score: 280 points (+50)* [14:25] <&Hebizuka> *Next turn. What's your next move?* [14:25] <~SU_Tempest> [Citz1] Don't worry, it's always a little hard to hit the head. [14:25] <Jonah> No, it's fine. I just got a bit cocky. [14:26] <Jonah> *Ruger Mark 3 Pistol, head region, 4 shots.* [14:26] <&Hebizuka> *You may roll.* [14:26] <Jonah> @roll 4#2d6 [14:26] <MazeBot> Jonah: 5;3;5;9 [14:27] <&Hebizuka> *Shots 1-4: Miss, Miss, Miss, Hit.* [14:27] <&Hebizuka> *Score: 330 points (+50)* [14:27] <Jonah> Well, score wise, I'm still ahead of all torso shots... [14:27] <Jonah> In real life I'd probably be dead now. [14:29] <~SU_Tempest> [Citz1] You still have one round in there, be careful. And I'd say you're doing okay! [14:29] <Jonah> *Ruger Mark 3 Pistol, groin region, 1 shot.* [14:30] <&Hebizuka> *Roll now.* [14:30] <Jonah> @roll 1#2d6 [14:30] <MazeBot> Jonah: 10 [14:30] <Jonah> *pow* [14:30] <&Hebizuka> *The satisfying "DING" of a steel target being hit resonates.* [14:30] <&Hebizuka> *Shot 1: Hit.* [14:30] <&Hebizuka> *Score: 360 points (+30)* [14:31] <~SU_Tempest> [Citz1] And there you go! 360 points, not bad at all. [14:31] <Jonah> Wooo - okay, that. Is kinda a rush. [14:31] <Jonah> Rings are earing, though. [14:31] <Jonah> Er - reverse that. [14:31] <~SU_Tempest> [Citz1] Haha. You weren't shooting the loudest weapon either! [14:31] <&Hebizuka> *Ruger MkIII stage: 360 points. Rating: Excellent [14:32] <Jonah> /Really?/ That's - yikes. [14:32] <Jonah> ...Excellent? But I missed so many times! [14:32] <Jonah> I'm pretty sure I had less than 50% hit rate. [14:32] <~SU_Tempest> [Citz3] Yes but you made hits where it counted the most. Your hit rate doesn't matter if your opponent's noggin has a hole. [14:32] <~SU_Tempest> [Citz3] I kind of start to understand why our friend is such a headshot happy guy. [14:32] <~SU_Tempest> [Citz2] Heh. You KNOW me! [14:33] <~SU_Tempest> [Citz2] Anyway, lassie, do you want to try the second weapon? [14:33] <Jonah> I see... well - oh. [14:33] * Jonah shakes her head, offering an embarrassed smile. [14:33] <Jonah> Well, this is supposed to be a contest, right? [14:33] <~SU_Tempest> [Citz2] Well, if you beat the scores we have on paper... Yeah, kinda! [14:33] <Jonah> I was hoping to see you three sirs handle this stage first. [14:34] <~SU_Tempest> [Citz1] Thing is, we already shot our rounds before you came in, while waiting for the fourth dude. [14:34] <Jonah> Oh, you have scores already? What did you three get? [14:34] <~SU_Tempest> *First citizen got 100. Third got 200. Second got 800.* [14:34] <Jonah> I see, I see - well, in that case. Did you get the - whoa. [14:34] * Jonah does some quick math in her head. [14:34] <~SU_Tempest> [Citz1] He's a total monster, haha. [14:35] <Jonah> That's 16 headshots in 20 rounds? [14:35] <~SU_Tempest> [Citz2] 15 headshots, 5 torso hits, in fact. [14:35] <Jonah> ... Holy fuck. [14:35] <~SU_Tempest> [Citz2] Heh. You should see the second stage, ma'am. [14:35] <&Hebizuka> *You're shown a larger weapon; a rifle of some sort.* [14:36] <~SU_Tempest> [Weapon] Class 1 - General Motors M2 Carbine assault rifle | .30 Carbine - Semi/Full | No accessory | M1 Carbine 30-round mag, +1 | Weight: 9 - [0/15] [14:36] <Jonah> I'm getting a little... uhm, right! Second weapon! [14:36] <~SU_Tempest> (scratch that, 15 round mag, not 30) [14:36] * Jonah is terribly thankful that all the armor and leggings gets in the way of her dick. [14:36] <Jonah> *Because holy hell I do not need an erection right now.* [14:36] <~SU_Tempest> *All that covers your crotch is jeans. Your armor doesn't go past your upper body.* [14:37] <~SU_Tempest> [Citz2] Aight. See this selector on the side. You can choose between semi (one round per trigger pull) or full-auto, which will make it go off like a machine gun. You can shoot a lot more rounds at one time, but recoil will be harsher. [14:38] * Jonah very casually angles her legs so that no one notices her increasing bulge. [14:38] <Jonah> Alright - uhm, Sir, does this stage have a timed component? [14:38] <~SU_Tempest> [Citz2] Like before, two mags. That means 30 rounds. *He loads the rifle, then safely hands it to you.* Goin' hot, whenever you're ready. And no, we don't do timed stuff. Take all the time you want. [14:39] <Jonah> That's... okay. [14:39] * Jonah takes a deep breath, and braces the rifle against her shoulder. [14:39] <Jonah> Like this? [14:39] <~SU_Tempest> [Citz2] Yup. [14:40] <&Hebizuka> *Combat tutorial part 2. Your weapon is select-fire, meaning it has multiple fire modes. Here, it is semi and full (or "auto"). In order to announce an attack with such a weapon, do like before, but state the fire mode before typing the amount of rounds. Forgetting to do so invalidates the roll, so beware.* [14:40] <&Hebizuka> *What is your next move?* [14:42] <Jonah> *General Motors M2 Carbine AR, semi-auto fire, head region, 3 shots.* [14:42] <&Hebizuka> *You may roll.* [14:42] <Jonah> @roll 3#2d6 [14:42] <MazeBot> Jonah: 8;7;7 [14:42] <&Hebizuka> *Shots 1-3 (FT 7): Hit, Miss, Miss.* [14:43] <&Hebizuka> *Score: 50 points (+50)* [14:43] <Jonah> Not a bad start... [14:43] <~SU_Tempest> [Citz1] Aye, aye. Keep going. [14:43] * Jonah very carefully, very deliberately, flips the selector to full auto. [14:43] <Jonah> *General Motors M2 Carbine AR, full-auto fire, head region, 3 shots.* [14:44] <&Hebizuka> *You may roll.* [14:44] <Jonah> @roll 3#2d6 [14:44] <MazeBot> Jonah: 8;10;4 [14:44] <&Hebizuka> *You notice these three rounds came out a LOT faster, and you feel you would lose control of the M2 a lot faster in full than in semi... But thankfully, 3 rounds isn't enough to start feeling that.* [14:44] <&Hebizuka> *Shots 1-3 (FT 7): Hit, Hit, Miss.* [14:45] <&Hebizuka> *Score: 150 points (+100)* [14:47] <Jonah> *Wonder if there's ever gonna be a time when I need that level of speed... Let's keep going like this for now.* [14:47] <Jonah> *General Motors M2 Carbine AR, full-auto fire, head region, 3 shots.* [14:47] <&Hebizuka> *You may roll.* [14:47] <Jonah> @roll 3#2d6 [14:47] <MazeBot> Jonah: 4;9;3 [14:47] <&Hebizuka> *Shots 1-3 (FT 7): Miss, Hit, Miss.* [14:47] <&Hebizuka> *Score: 200 points (+50)* [14:48] <Jonah> Feels like a quick squeeze is just right. [14:48] <Jonah> And I hold down the trigger to empty my cl... er, magazine, right? [14:48] <~SU_Tempest> [Citz1] Basically. [14:48] <~SU_Tempest> [Citz1] If it's on full-auto! [14:49] <Jonah> Okay. Well, if I hold it that long for three shots... [14:49] <Jonah> *General Motors M2 Carbine AR, full-auto fire, head region, 1 shot.* [14:49] <&Hebizuka> *You may roll.* [14:49] <Jonah> @roll 1#2d6 [14:49] <MazeBot> Jonah: 3 [14:49] <&Hebizuka> *Miss.* [14:49] <~SU_Tempest> [Citz1] Don't concentrate too much on the trigger, aight? [14:50] <Jonah> Oh - you noticed? Eheh. [14:50] <Jonah> Sorry, I was trying to figure out how to control how much I shoot in full auto. [14:50] <~SU_Tempest> [Citz2] 3-4 rounds is good enough, I'd say. [14:52] <Jonah> I see. Right, okay - let out seven bullets, so... [14:52] <Jonah> *General Motors M2 Carbine AR, full-auto fire, head region, 5 shots.* [14:53] <&Hebizuka> *You may roll.* [14:53] <Jonah> @roll 5#2d6 [14:53] <MazeBot> Jonah: 4;9;8;6;5 [14:53] <&Hebizuka> *Shots 1-4 (FT 7): Miss, Hit, Hit, Miss* [14:53] <&Hebizuka> @bodyaim [14:53] <MazeBot> [LIMB] Right elbow [14:54] <&Hebizuka> *Shot 5 (FT 7): Miss* [14:54] <Jonah> So it's about four shots before the recoil's too much - for this gun, at least. [14:55] <&Hebizuka> *Score: 300 points (+100)* [14:55] <&Hebizuka> *The M2 Carbine is now empty.* [14:55] <&Hebizuka> *You're stripped of the old mag, and given 15 fresh rounds in a new mag to rock and roll once more.* [14:55] <Jonah> Wait - wow, I miscounted. [14:56] <Jonah> Also - theoretically, if I stopped at 14 shots, I could have reloaded then, yes? [14:56] <~SU_Tempest> [Citz2] It's all right, it's pretty much normal in the midst of combat to lose count. [14:56] <~SU_Tempest> [Citz2] Well, yes, why? [14:56] <Jonah> Giving me one in the chamber, and 15 in reserve? [14:56] <~SU_Tempest> [Citz2] Mhmm. [14:56] <Jonah> Okay - thank you, Sir. Just wanted to make sure I got it right. [14:57] <Jonah> *General Motors M2 Carbine AR, semi-auto fire, head region, 5 shots.* [14:57] <~SU_Tempest> [Citz2] Good catch. You should always make use of this technique whenever possible. And if you don't have any mags for some reason... most weapons can shoot that one round in the chamber. Just put it in manually. But that's really for last ditches. [14:57] <~SU_Tempest> [Citz3] Yeah... Keith got into problems because of mags, right? [14:57] <~SU_Tempest> [Citz2] Don't remind me. He got killed BECAUSE he forgot to bring extra. [14:57] <&Hebizuka> *You may roll.* [14:58] <Jonah> @roll 5#2d6 [14:58] <MazeBot> Jonah: 5;8;7;11;5 [14:58] <&Hebizuka> *Shots 1-5 (FT 7): Miss, Hit, Miss, Hit, Miss.* [14:58] <&Hebizuka> *You notice that in semi, you can keep control for longer; thus there is no "jump" after 4 rounds.* [14:58] <Jonah> After this, could one of you show me how to load the round manually? [14:59] <Jonah> *But a jump could still be there...* [14:59] <~SU_Tempest> [Citz2] Yesh, sure. [14:59] <&Hebizuka> *Score: 400 points (+100)* [14:59] <Jonah> *General Motors M2 Carbine AR, semi-auto fire, head region, 10 shots.* [14:59] <&Hebizuka> *Go ahead and roll.* [14:59] <Jonah> @roll 10#2d6 [14:59] <MazeBot> Jonah: 7;8;3;9;10;10;6;5;9;8 [14:59] <&Hebizuka> *Shots 1-6 (FT 7): Miss, Hit, Miss, Hit, Hit, Hit* [14:59] <&Hebizuka> @bodyaim [14:59] <MazeBot> [UPPER BODY] Torso (Chest, back) [15:00] <Jonah> *No jump no jump no jum - damn.* [15:00] <&Hebizuka> *Shots 7-10 (FT 7): Miss, Miss, Hit, Hit.* [15:00] <&Hebizuka> *Total hits: 4 head, 2 torso* [15:00] <&Hebizuka> *Score: 620 points (+220)* [15:01] <~SU_Tempest> [Citz2] Whoo. Didn't think you'd hit that much for such a long burst! You just wanted to have fun, didn't you? [15:01] * Jonah groans as she puts the gun down - even with the full plate covering her chest, the recoil was hard to deal with. Her hands haven't shook like this in years! [15:01] <&Hebizuka> *M2 Carbine stage: 620 points. Rating: Excellent - New high score!* [15:01] <Jonah> No, not at all - I wanted to see when the recoil would start ruining my aim. [15:02] <Jonah> With a full auto, it's about four shots before I can't help it. And with a semi it's 6. [15:02] <&Hebizuka> [Friendly Fire: Current high scores // Mk III Stage: Maria Sanders (430) - M2 Carbine stage: Jonah (620)] [15:02] <Jonah> I mean - but that's only for this gun, so I'd have to practice with the ones I - WAIT WHAT. [15:02] <&Hebizuka> [The high score bit is OOC.] [15:02] <~SU_Tempest> [Citz2] You scored amazingly well, ma'am. [15:02] <Jonah> (Oh okay.) [15:03] <~SU_Tempest> [Citz2] You seem surprised! [15:03] <Jonah> Of course I'd be! Today was the first time I ever fired a gun! [15:03] <~SU_Tempest> [Citz1] Hey, guys. I think we should reward her, she's no longer a newbie. Think she's gonna go far, wherever she goes. [15:03] <~SU_Tempest> [Citz3] Agreed. [15:04] <Jonah> I mean - well, a range isn't really a full combat situation, I'd be waay better off aiming at the torso. [15:04] <Jonah> But even so! [15:04] <Jonah> ...Wait, what? A reward? [15:04] <Jonah> Oh, no no no, I couldn't possibly accept that! [15:04] <~SU_Tempest> [Citz3] Come on, you gave us a good show, and you look like you could use it, too. [15:04] <&Hebizuka> *One of them searches for something in their shoulder bag, before pushing it towards you.* [15:04] <Jonah> You already let me eat up two clips and two magazines worth of ammo, /I/ should be the one repaying you all! [15:05] * Jonah just as firmly pushes it back. [15:05] <~SU_Tempest> [Citz3] Mags on both weapons, ma'am. Haha~ [15:05] <Jonah> Oh, uhm. Whoops... [15:05] <~SU_Tempest> [Citz1] Oh don't worry about ammunition, okay? It's cheap. [15:05] <~SU_Tempest> [Citz1] And there's plenty more at home. [15:05] <Jonah> Are... are you sure?

Weight: 0.25+0.1 (0.35) [10/10 FMJ] [15:06] <&Hebizuka> [Money] 700 P$ [15:06] <Jonah> That's... [15:06] <~SU_Tempest> [Citz1] Take the Mark III. You more than deserve it, and if anything it'll make for a good training pistol until you find something better. [15:06] <Jonah> Uhm. [15:06] <Jonah> Well. [15:06] <~SU_Tempest> [Citz2] Fun for huntin', too! [15:07] <Jonah> I already have a Smith & Wesson Revolver - maybe we could trade? [15:07] <~SU_Tempest> [Citz3] Your hunting methods are "Headshot all the things". [15:07] <Jonah> I feel a bit guilty just /taking/ this. [15:07] <~SU_Tempest> [Citz2] What?! It's valid. [15:07] * Jonah seems to perk at the word 'Hunting'. [15:07] <~SU_Tempest> [Citz1] Oh no. Please no trading. Just strap it on your other leg! [15:07] <Jonah> You sirs hunt? [15:07] <~SU_Tempest> [Citz1] It will do just fine, trust me. [15:07] <Jonah> Harvesting meat and all? [15:08] <~SU_Tempest> [Citz2] I do yeah. I was taught how to butcher meat by a really spiffy chef, and since then I regularly go hunting, skin the game, and bring him the meat for money. [15:08] <~SU_Tempest> [Citz2] That's partly how we can afford all that money. Game meat is valuable. [15:08] <Jonah> Hmmm... [15:08] <~SU_Tempest> [Citz2] And delicious in a pinch. Mmm, dragon meat. [15:08] <~SU_Tempest> *The other two grimace at the mention of dragon meat.* [15:08] * Jonah offers up a cautious smile, and gently hands the seven hundred dollars back to them. [15:09] <~SU_Tempest> [Citz1] I think it's "earn" all that money. "Afford" is stuff you buy. [15:09] <Jonah> Well, three kind sirs just gave me seven hundred dollars. [15:09] <Jonah> So could I perhaps hire one of you three to teach me how to skin and harvest game meat? [15:09] <Jonah> ...Or, um, are those lessons more expensive than seven hundred. [15:09] <~SU_Tempest> [Citz2] Whatever, man. And no, ma'am, I insist. Take the cash, AND the gun. As for how to do that? ...I'm a terrible teacher. You should ask a chef for lessons instead. That money will do plenty for lessons, and I bet a lunch as well. [15:11] <Jonah> That's... well, okay, then. [15:11] * Jonah tosses the seven hundred into her money pouch, and makes sure the Ruger is loaded before strapping it to her other leg. [15:11] <&Hebizuka> *It is indeed, with 10 rounds.* [15:12] <Jonah> *Bending down is kinda hard with this THING in my way.* [15:12] <&Hebizuka> *Ammunition stored in the Backpack, main inventory.* [15:13] * Jonah does a quick patdown, making sure everything is secure, before turning to the men one last time. [15:13] <&Hebizuka> [Weight] (Backpack, main inv) 16.46/60 [15:14] <Jonah> Thank you for everything, kind sirs - I am in your debt. [15:14] <&Hebizuka> [Money] Total carried 700 P$ [15:14] <~SU_Tempest> [Citz2] Nah, you're not. It's nothing, really! [15:14] <Jonah> Uhm - could I perhaps have your names, and cell phone numbers? If the situation permits, I would love to do this again. [15:14] <&Hebizuka> *Mission complete. When you are ready to go, type !mrooms3.* [15:14] <Jonah> Just for fun! No need for another cash reward! [15:15] <~SU_Tempest> [Citz2] Uh, well, we don't have a phone, sadly. [15:15] <Jonah> Oh. Damn. [15:15] <~SU_Tempest> [Citz3] I think the important bit here is "we all live in the same bedroom and a phone would be a bother". [15:15] <~SU_Tempest> [Citz2] I'm working on that, okay? [15:15] <~SU_Tempest> [Citz2] A new place to live in is a LOT of pieces of meat. [15:16] <Jonah> Mmmm - well, I hope your living situation gets better soon. [15:16] <Jonah> Thank you for everything again!

Its many bookshelves, tons of subjects about anything. Though most of the books look old and caked in dust. There is nobody present in this room presently... All you see that looks out of the ordinary is a roll of blue paper on the librarian's desk.* [15:19] <Jonah> If anyone trapped a /library/ they are soulless monsters beyond the nether. [15:19] <Jonah> ...Speaking of nethers... HEBIZUKA WHY DID YOU GIVE ME A DICk. [15:20] <Jonah> THIS IS REALLY DUMB! [15:20] <&Hebizuka> *No response.* [15:20] <Jonah> ...Oh wait /fuck/ I just shouted in a library. [15:20] <Jonah> Right - uhm, blue paper! [15:20] <&Hebizuka> *You yell inside an empty room. Your voice resonates for a moment. Thankfully nobody else is here.* [15:20] <Jonah> ...Oh. [15:20] <Jonah> Okay.

[15:20] <&Hebizuka> (Should be "syringe of cyanide" [15:21] <Jonah> ...I have /syringes/ of cyanide, does that co - oh. [15:21] <Jonah> Yes it does. [15:21] <Jonah> ...Well, the Order of the Purple Moth uses poison, like, all the time. [15:21] <Jonah> I'd need bolts though. [15:21] <Jonah> ...And, you know, a crossbow to shoot them from. [15:21] <Jonah> ...Unless I just poisoned them all and /stabbed/ people with them. [15:21] <Jonah> Uhm. [15:21] <Jonah> Right. [15:21] <Jonah> Take the blueprint. [15:22] <Jonah> And skim through the books for anything on... butchering or lockpicking. [15:22] <Jonah> Oh - and Warg/Kitsune/Dragon anatomy! [15:22] <Jonah> I need to make sure my previous note taking was not in vain! [15:22] <&Hebizuka> [Weight] (Backpack, main inv) 17.46/60 [15:23] <&Hebizuka> *You skim through the book titles, but the majority of which don't seem to be any helpful for the topics you had in mind.* [15:23] <Jonah> Nothing at all? [15:23] <&Hebizuka> *You do find a few old anatomy books, of the "Science of creatures" series; it looks like some sort of biology encyclopedia, but it is visibly dated in look and shape.* [15:24] <Jonah> Mmm... what /am/ I - oh, goody. [15:24] <&Hebizuka> *The "D", "K" and "W" books do have articles on your chosen creatures.* [15:24] <Jonah> Right. [15:24] <Jonah> Let's go in alphabetical order. [15:24] <&Hebizuka> *They don't reveal much extra information; just basics about living habits, life expectancy, other irrelevant stats, and the standard fare of blurb.* [15:24] <Jonah> Dragons - Auntie Helel /did/ teach me my Double Ds. [15:25] <Jonah> Different Dimensions, Different Dragons. Anything on, like. Common elemental atrributes? [15:25] <&Hebizuka> *You find the "Dragon" entry to be fairly large as it has subsections, and talks about all the different species of dragons.* [15:25] <Jonah> Do they breathe fire, ice, and sheer hate here? [15:26] <&Hebizuka> *There are "lesser dragons", which seems to be a common primordial, infantile form for all dragons. They have wings, but can't fly and can't make use of any abilities other than clawing and biting.* [15:27] <&Hebizuka> *Lesser dragons can grow up to become normal dragons, which are the same thing; just bigger and stronger, or can become aer dragons (air elementals which can spit airblasts), imugi (they grow horns but lose wings), knuckers (fire elementals which can spit fireblasts), wyverns (water elementals which can spit waterblasts)... * [15:27] <&Hebizuka> *...or a species described as corrupted, the Vere Celen (known for having a bizarre physique and trying to mate with anything alive - including non-dragons.)* [15:28] <&Hebizuka> *There's also a short mention about Seiryuu, the Cardinal God, and legends talking about messenger "enlightened" dragons, but are dismissed as just that, legends.* [15:28] <Jonah> ...Right. [15:28] <Jonah> Uhm, any specifics on the Vere Calen? [15:28] <Jonah> They just seem the most dangerous, is all! [15:28] <Jonah> Those RAPISTS. [15:29] <Jonah> Just - well, what kind of bizarre physique? [15:29] <Jonah> Could I, like, throw a woman at them and run away? [15:30] <Jonah> ...Or be that woman my - ahh wait no I have a dick. [15:30] <&Hebizuka> *Vere Celen are large, black and grey dragons, about as large as a regular dragon. They do not have wings, are unable to use any elemental attacks, and as they grow from their primordial lesser form, all seem to develop the same mental and physical defects, such as a constant state of sexual arousal, a constant desire to mate - without regard for species, regardless of the dragon's gender... [15:30] <Jonah> I'd be sticking it in /them/ wouldn't I. [15:30] <&Hebizuka> *...as well as several physical difformities which make them appear large and bloated. Nevertheless, they are tough creatures, as any dragon would be.* [15:30] <Jonah> ...Wait a second, Seiryuu? [15:31] <&Hebizuka> *Of note are the males' genitals, famous for their red color, size and girth. Vere Celen are nicknamed "rapist dragons", due to their infamous reputation.* [15:31] * Jonah is able to successfully ignore that bit about the males' large, handsome cocks and flip back to Seiryuu. [15:31] <&Hebizuka> *The book doesn't mention much detail about Seiryuu, just that he is depicted as a dragon according to mythology, and advises to refer to a religious reference book instead.* [15:32] <Jonah> Oh /motherfucker/ they're referring to Qing Long. [15:32] <Jonah> What are /they/ doing herE? [15:32] <Jonah> Is that religious reference book in this library? [15:32] <&Hebizuka> *There is a section about religion, but all of the books mysteriously disappeared.* [15:33] <Jonah> That'd be too easy. [15:33] <Jonah> Le sigh. Right, uhm. [15:33] <Jonah> Kitsune. [15:33] <&Hebizuka> *You notice a LOT of sections are empty.* [15:33] <Jonah> ...Is the porn section empty? [15:34] <&Hebizuka> [Biology encyclopedia] Kitsune are a subspecies of the youkai race, known for their fox anthropomorphic features. Kitsune are not known to be elemental creatures, but seem to all have an advanced grasp of magical and supernatural energies. At adult age, all kitsune have some degree of skill in elemental magic, and are capable of using such techniques offensively. [15:35] <Jonah> Sounds normal enough... Tails and pulling thereof? [15:36] <&Hebizuka> [Biology encyclopedia] Physiologically, kitsune DNA is advanced-class, and these creatures are as such, subject to the 4-gender system rather than the standard 2-gender one, as seen in their animal counterparts, the foxes. They have the remarkable and unexplained ability to grow extra fox tails every 100 years of age, each tail symbolizing an increase in intelligence and mental ability, to a maximum of 9. [15:36] <&Hebizuka> [Biology encyclopedia] As such, a kitsune reaches full maturity at age 800. [15:38] <Jonah> ...So would having sex with a kitsune that has less than nine tails be pedophila? [15:38] <&Hebizuka> [Biology encyclopedia] Also of note are their hands, which do not bear nails, but full-fledged claws. Much like other youkai species, kitsune are known combatants, and many have engaged in human-youkai racial conflict as armed activists due to their unique offensive abilities. Cunning strategists, kitsune tend to be leaders or potent masterminds. [15:38] <Jonah> I seriously need to grill someone about this race war. [15:38] <&Hebizuka> *That is all there is about kitsune.* [15:39] <Jonah> ...Balls. [15:39] <Jonah> Alrighty, Wargs? [15:40] <&Hebizuka> *You flip through the W book in the series...* [15:41] <&Hebizuka> [Biology encyclopedia] Wargs are a member of the canine family. They are often considered in popular culture to be corrupted or demonic versions of the more mundane wolf. Though DNA similarities show that wargs are related to wolves, they do not bear any demonic or supernatural features and are simply larger creatures. [15:42] <Jonah> So like lions to cats. [15:42] <&Hebizuka> [Biology encyclopedia] Physiologically, wargs are known for being much taller and larger than the typical wolf. These creatures also suffer from a reputation and a history of violence, with hundreds of confirmed attacks from wargs. They typically live in groups, though solitary wargs attacking other species is not unheard of. [15:42] <Jonah> Or... lynxes, since they're demonically perceived. [15:42] <Jonah> Hmmm... taming one sounds like a good time. [15:42] <Jonah> ...Damn it, /taming./ Fucking poor choice of words. [15:42] <&Hebizuka> [Biology encyclopedia] It is notable to note that wargs suffer from a demonic reputation in popular culture despite DNA evidence showing they have no demonic corruption, while there exists a demonic canine, the hellhound. [15:42] <Jonah> Ngggh. [15:43] <&Hebizuka> *That is all it says on wargs.* [15:43] <Jonah> Right, uhm. [15:43] <Jonah> This is enough. [15:43] <Jonah> I'm going to shove the book into my backpack. [15:43] <&Hebizuka> *This is three different books we are talking about.* [15:43] <Jonah> Because it is thick and heavy, and I can look up extra races on my downtime. [15:43] <Jonah> Oh wait really? [15:43] <&Hebizuka> *Biology Encyclopedia - tomes D, K and W.* [15:44] <Jonah> Balls. [15:45] <Jonah> Ugh, I'm not thinking straight anymore. [15:45] <Jonah> Is there a porn section somewhere? [15:46] <&Hebizuka> *Like any good library, it has a small adult section, yes.* [15:46] <Jonah> I'm just gonna... I dunno, mess around or something. [15:46] <&Hebizuka> *Though the porn is probably as vintage as the rest of the books here, it's still there.* [15:47] <Jonah> Right, let's just pick up a... a bestiality book or something. [15:47] <&Hebizuka> *As funny as it sounds, you don't find any porn mags on your chosen topic.* [15:47] <Jonah> Then - kitsune? [15:47] <Jonah> Dragons? [15:48] <&Hebizuka> *Nothing on dragons, but you see a youkai-oriented porn magazine. There's a bit of everything, but kitsune are present.* [15:48] <Jonah> Foxes it is. [15:48] <Jonah> Oh, god. This feels so /wrong.../ [15:49] * Jonah futilely tries to bar the doors to the library before taking off leggings and her jeans. [15:49] <Jonah> Guh. Stupid /dick./ Why do you have to make me all tingly? [15:54] * Jonah flips open to a random page all in a huff, and begins reading. [15:54] * Jonah 's slow, frustrated grumbles turn into a surprised gasp when she gives herself the first stroke... [15:54] <Jonah> (*fade to black*) [15:55] <&Hebizuka> *Five minutes and a few white stains on the porn mag later...* [15:55] <Jonah> Ugh, even the /release/ tastes yucky. [15:56] <&Hebizuka> [Potency] 85% (-15) [15:56] <Jonah> I tasted /perfectly fine/ before this damn thing, but now it's 'oh no you can only cum once' and 'oh hey now you smell salty and gross.' [15:56] <Jonah> Boys /suck./ [15:56] <&Hebizuka> *Though nothing quite beats the way you -feel- afterwards. Warmth leaves your body, but you feel strangely... Stronger? You can't describe it really.* [15:57] * Jonah gently wipes the stains off the porn mag with her jeans before putting everything back on, tossing the porn mag as another memento. [15:57] <&Hebizuka> *Carrying it as a meaningless item?* [15:57] * Jonah VERY DELIBERATELY is ignoring the endorphins rushing through her stupid Mazeworld-brand brain.

There is nobody here though, and you see nothing much else of use.* [16:01] <Jonah> Quick check - does anything else open? [16:01] <Jonah> ...FUCK. [16:01] <Jonah> I SHOULD HAVE LOOKED UP FUTAS WHEN I HAD THE CHANCE [16:02] <&Hebizuka> *The other safes are open, but they're also empty.* [16:02] <Jonah> HOW DID THAT ACTUALLY ESCAPE ME!?

Which does nothing to clear the crap INSIDE of the gun.* [16:05] <Jonah> And is it loaded? [16:05] <&Hebizuka> *A quick check of the magazine and a very slight slide pull reveals it's loaded, yes.

I have two Ruger mags, thanks to those hunky men back at the range. [16:52] <Jonah> So let's just slip those in the vest and put it on. [16:52] <Jonah> In the meantime - are the crates here wooden or metal?

[19:10] <&Hebizuka> *Placed in: Vest/Main inv.* [19:10] <&Hebizuka> [Mushroom] (Unidentified) Red, Odorless - Weight 0.1 [19:11] <Jonah> !mrooms3 [19:11] <&Hebizuka> [ Jonah ] Left door: 96 - Front door: 1614 - Right door: 6934 - Roomstyle: 322 - Enemy strength: 5 /6 [19:11] <Jonah> @roll 1#1d3 [19:11] <MazeBot> Jonah: 2 [19:11] <Jonah> Heh. [19:11] <Jonah> Charge through the front door. [19:11] <&Hebizuka> [Weight] (Vest/Main inv): 0.1/5 [19:12] <&Hebizuka> *A factory line. This is an industrial room with lots of machinery. It used to produce ammunition, but all activity seems to have stopped. There is no usable ammunition, just unfinished casings with no powder, primer, or bullets. In short, unusable brass. You do see a small object though, sitting on a table.* [19:13] <Jonah> What am I looking at? [19:13] <&Hebizuka> [Meds] Syringe - Unidentified - Weight: 0.1 [19:14] <Jonah> ... [19:14] <Jonah> It could be hers. [19:14] <Jonah> Someone could have taken it from her. [19:14] <Jonah> ...Or I'm reaching at straws. [19:14] <Jonah> Shove it on my vest, let's get going.

[19:16] <&Hebizuka> [Weight] (Vest/Main inv): 0.2/5 [19:16] <&Hebizuka> *A regular, featureless room. Again, you see nobody around, but this time there is a box of ammunition like that, on the floor.* [19:17] <Jonah> Gahhhhhhhhh. [19:17] <Jonah> What's the ammo? [19:17] <&Hebizuka> [Ammunition] 40mm NATO grenade - M651 tear gas (CS), 6 rounds - weight: 6 [19:17] <Jonah> ...Grenades are /ammunit - oh. [19:17] <Jonah> For a grenade launcher. [19:17] <Jonah> Not, like. Something I could throw. [19:18] <&Hebizuka> *The box even says: "For use in grenade launchers."* [19:18] <Jonah> ...Worse comes to worst, I'm pretty sure I could throw them and shoot at it to blow. [19:18] <Jonah> Into the vest's ammo pouch it goes [19:19] <&Hebizuka> *Your mag pouches can't carry those grenades.* [19:19] <&Hebizuka> *Your backpack may be able to contain those items though.* [19:19] <&Hebizuka> *Mind the weight!* [19:20] <Jonah> ...Gah. This nurse is messing with me. [19:20] <Jonah> Whatever. Into the backpack, let's go through the doors. [19:20] <Jonah> !mrooms3 [19:20] <&Hebizuka> [ Jonah ] Left door: 6226 - Front door: 5454 - Right door: 1734 - Roomstyle: 420 - Enemy strength: 2 /6 [19:21] <Jonah> ...Fuck it, charge.

The shrine maiden is present!* [19:24] * Jonah charges right up to the donation box, and donates all of her money. [19:24] <Jonah> 640P$ [19:24] <~SU_Tempest> [Miko] Welcome to m- [19:24] <~SU_Tempest> [Miko] ...whoa. THAT is a lot of money. [19:25] <Jonah> I'm sorry, I'm in a hurry - did you see a nurse around here? [19:25] <Jonah> Black hair, pale skin, probably bleeding out? [19:25] <Jonah> I tried asking the gods for advice, but there wasn't an altar, so I was sent in circles. [19:25] <~SU_Tempest> [Miko] A nurse? Hurt? [19:26] <Jonah> Deathly injured. She was in one of the worse sectors, and then she got shot and robbed for her meds. [19:26] <~SU_Tempest> [Miko] Wow... That is really sad, to hurt people who heal others. Anyhow, no, I didn't see any nurse. [19:26] <Jonah> That's... [19:26] <~SU_Tempest> [Miko] Which sector was that? [19:26] * Jonah takes a deep breath, trying to settle herself. [19:26] <Jonah> The witnesses didn't say. They didn't want any 'trouble'. [19:26] <Jonah> Uhm - thanks for talking to me. I'm gonna... pray for guidance, now. [19:27] <Jonah> Alright, take 2. I hope this works. [19:27] <~SU_Tempest> [Miko] Which room? Cause there are a few crime-laden areas... [19:29] <Jonah> Room, uh... Room 4180. [19:29] <~SU_Tempest> [Miko] Ooh. Sector 41. [19:30] <~SU_Tempest> [Miko] Yeah... Sadly, I am not surprised. The newspapers keep talking about sad stories happening there. [19:31] * Jonah is a bit too shaken to really do more than nod back, before turning to the altar and praying. [19:31] <Jonah> *Qinglong, Guardian of the East, Defender of Spring. This nurse acted in your name, through action if not intent, by having the strength and courage to help the helpless.* [19:31] <&Hebizuka> *Since you made a donation, you have a bonus to prayer.* [19:31] <&Hebizuka> @roll 2d6+2 Prayer [19:31] <MazeBot> Hebizuka, Prayer: 11:9+2 [19:31] <Jonah> *I ask that you now help me help her in return, and lead me to her.* [19:31] <&Hebizuka> *You receive divine advice.* [19:32] <&Hebizuka> *The gods send you a telepathic message!* [19:32] <&Hebizuka> [Seiryuu] Rest easy, you who cares for others. The person you are looking for is already gone to the Netherworld. Unfortunately, not all injustices can be prevented. [19:33] <Jonah> *...Fuck.* [19:33] <&Hebizuka> [Seiryuu] If you truly wish to do good, opportunities will come to you. Fear not and stand strong. [19:33] <&Hebizuka> *The message ends.* [19:33] <Jonah> That's, uhm... [19:34] * Jonah turns to the Miko, rubbing her eyes to prevent herself from crying. [19:34] <Jonah> Do you... do you mind if I stay here for a while? I need a break. [19:35] <~SU_Tempest> [Miko] Oh no, I don't mind. Was this person a friend of yours? [19:35] <Jonah> ...No, not... not really. [19:35] <Jonah> I just wanted to help her. [19:36] <Jonah> I uh... I don't have any friends, ehehe... [19:36] <~SU_Tempest> [Miko] Aw. You're sweet. The Gods seem very responsive to you as well. [19:36] <~SU_Tempest> [Miko] How come you don't have friends? You could easily befriend anyone. [19:37] <Jonah> I, uh... I'm a bit crazy. [19:37] <Jonah> A, uhm... what did they say. [19:37] <Jonah> 'A delusional, lonely girl who wants to believe in heroes.' [19:38] * Jonah very desperately tries not to curl up in a ball. [19:38] <~SU_Tempest> [Miko] Honey, if the folks in Sector 41 told you, that, then... may the Gods pardon me for what I'm about to say but... They can go fuck themselves. [19:38] <Jonah> You don't agree? [19:38] <~SU_Tempest> [Miko] *Coy grin* You know, I was raised in 27. Not a whole lot better. I wanted to be a miko because I was sick of seeing my former classmates turn to drugs and criminal lives. [19:39] <Jonah> ...Oh. [19:39] <Jonah> Good on you for getting out of that hellhole, then. [19:39] <~SU_Tempest> [Miko] I believe in heroes, too. I don't think it did me too bad. My classmates, however... Well, some joined crime families. Others died. [19:40] * Jonah lets out a long, shuddering breath. [19:40] <~SU_Tempest> [Miko] I don't think it's delusional to believe in heroes. You just have to be careful. Take care of yourself first. You can't help anyone if you're a wreck, you know that? I turned to this life, it helped me. And now I'm in this quiet area, in S54, with nothing but good people. [19:41] <Jonah> Eheh. I'm... a bit terrible at taking care of myself. Any advice? [19:41] <~SU_Tempest> *She sits down next to you and wraps an arm around your back.* [19:41] <~SU_Tempest> [Miko] Do it like you're helping someone else, with the same care and love. [19:41] <~SU_Tempest> [Miko] Think, "I gotta help this girl, with the knight armor and the pretty eyes." [19:41] * Jonah can't help but lean towards the only source of warmth she's had in... months? Years? Hard to tell. [19:42] <~SU_Tempest> *She pats.* [19:42] <Jonah> ...Ahahah. Pretty? [19:42] <Jonah> You're the one who's shining. You're the heroine here. [19:42] <Jonah> I'm all - gunk and sweat and... /stuff./ [19:43] <~SU_Tempest> [Miko] I try to help people the best way I can. Offer guidance, give them advice. It's a dirty job, it's not paid outside of donations, and I'm often offered food and ammunition instead of money because people know it's what I buy anyway. [19:43] <~SU_Tempest> [Miko] If I'm a hero in the eyes of someone I helped, well... So long I helped them. I'm more than happy if they feel that way. [19:44] <~SU_Tempest> [Miko] It's what I chose to do. I've divine protection with me. And since you donated, I'm required to help you as well. [19:45] <~SU_Tempest> *The shrine maiden stands back up, holds her gohei at your head, and starts reciting a short prayer; you can't quite make out the words of that prayer. But you are definitely convinced of the miko's ability to help you, because as soon as she finishes, you feel your vision is sharpening.* [19:45] <Jonah> That's - huh? My eyes... [19:45] <~SU_Tempest> *The shrine maiden smiles once again.* [19:45] <Jonah> I haven't seen this well since I was a tot... [19:46] <~SU_Tempest> [Miko] I told you. You have pretty eyes.~ [19:46] * Jonah can't help but smile in response, despite the tears. Who wouldn't? [19:47] <Jonah> Uhm... I have some food I bought, before I went looking for the nurse. Would you like to share it with me? [19:47] <Jonah> I have some rice, and coffee, and - shrimp. [19:47] <~SU_Tempest> *She laughs.* [19:47] <~SU_Tempest> [Miko] With what you gave me, I can eat for a week. Don't give me more than what you already did! [19:48] * Jonah blushes terribly, pulling down the visor on her helm to hide the embarrassment. [19:48] <~SU_Tempest> [Miko] Like I said. Take care of yourself like you would to someone else. [19:48] <Jonah> Then, uhm... I have a... a request. [19:48] <Jonah> Miss, what's your name? [19:50] * Jonah pulls the visor up once she's composed herself, and finally takes a look at her hero. [19:58] <&Hebizuka> *The shrine maiden looks like an adult, filipina woman. She is of average height, is a little overweight, has shaved auburn hair, a pair of black eyes, wears a metallic collar with dogtags (!), and has a visible bullet wound on the left calf.* [20:01] <~SU_Tempest> [Miko] My name? [20:01] <~SU_Tempest> [Miko] Heh. You'll find it funny. [20:02] <~SU_Tempest> [Miko] My name is Carolyn Knight. [20:03] <Jonah> Eheh. That /is/ funny. [20:03] <Jonah> And, uhm - Miss Carolyn, my name is Jonah. [20:03] <~SU_Tempest> [Miko] Jonah. That's a cute name. [20:03] <~SU_Tempest> [Miko] Pleased to meet you, missus. [20:04] * Jonah takes her helmet off like a proper Paladin, doing her best to curtsey properly. [20:04] <Jonah> And I'm pleased to meet you. [20:04] <Jonah> Now, for my, uhm, request. [20:05] <Jonah> Even though I'm a Paladin, I'm... sorta really bad at taking care of myself. [20:05] <Jonah> And I know you have your duties to your shrine, and to your faith. [20:05] <~SU_Tempest> [Miko] A paladin? Do such things still exist?... Heh. [20:06] <Jonah> Well, I gotta believe in /some/ kind of hero. What better than a holy messenger of justice? [20:06] <Jonah> Now, ah - like I said. [20:06] <Jonah> I know you have your duties to your shrine, and your faith. [20:06] <Jonah> And what I'm about to ask you is really a lot. [20:06] <~SU_Tempest> [Miko] You want me to join you? [20:07] <Jonah> But...could you come with me, when I leave this room? [20:07] * Jonah flinches when Caroyln lays it all out so bluntly. [20:07] <Jonah> Uhm... yeah. [20:07] <Jonah> I understand if you don't want to! [20:07] <Jonah> A quiet life is a good life. [20:07] <~SU_Tempest> [Miko] *Smile.* [20:07] <Jonah> And what I'll be doing is dangerous. [20:07] <~SU_Tempest> [Miko] Everyone needs a hero. [20:07] <Jonah> So if...huh? [20:07] <Jonah> ...Wait, are you saying... [20:08] <~SU_Tempest> *The coy shrine maiden unholsters her handgun - you only notice now that she had a holster on her thigh. She removes her mag, casually checking the ammunition inside.* [20:09] <~SU_Tempest> [Miko] Oh, silly me. There's still 17 rounds inside... [20:10] <~SU_Tempest> *She replaces it inside her weapon, pulls on her slide, and loudly cocks her handgun.* [20:11] <~SU_Tempest> [Miko] Like they say, going hot. And I sure am. How about yes? I have a good feeling about you. I'm pretty sure the locals will undersand it if I'm on a divine mission. [20:11] <&Hebizuka> *Carolyn Knight joined you as an ally.* [20:12] <&Hebizuka> Checkout [20:13] <&Hebizuka> 20 rooms (+13), 0 kills, 0 SEs, 1 Mission (+1), 0 Amulets, 0 P$, 0 Runs [20:13] <&Hebizuka> Score: 30 pts (+23) [20:13] <&Hebizuka> Position: 7th (+1) [20:13] <&Hebizuka> *No combat stats today.* [20:14] <&Hebizuka> *No achievements progress.*
