From Mazeworld

<Hebizuka> *Welcome back to the Mazes, Reina. You are currently in the UA, in an independent weapon shop. The weapons dealer - a woman named Virginia - is still there at the counter, waiting to see if you want to order something else, or if you'll leave.* <Reina> Time to be off. <Hebizuka> [Next rooms] Left: Machinery room, abandoned // Front: Youkai bedroom (danchi), abandoned // Right: Empty shrine, abandoned <Reina> Empty shrine it is. <Hebizuka> *An abandoned, empty shrine. There is no telling what side it used to belong to - everything is old and faded now. Searchables: Donation box. There is an item on the floor.* <Reina> I'll take that and then search the box. <Hebizuka> [Meds] White powder - Unidentified - Weight: 0.1 <Hebizuka> *Place where?* <Reina> Shove it in the backpack, I'll deal wth it later. Now - looting! <Hebizuka> [Money] 100 P$ <Hebizuka> *Looks like the donation box was not totally looted.* <Reina> Suckers.

Doesn't really matter. <Hebizuka> *You are starting to feel hungry.* <Hebizuka> *An abandoned locker room. You spot ammunition on the floor. Out of the 9 lockers that are here, one still has a lock, but you doubt you will find anything - the lockers have all been forced open and looted.* <Reina> *Even the one that has a lock on it?* <Hebizuka> *Yes, even the one that has a lock on it - the lower part of the door was torn open.* <Reina> Alrighty. Ammo pickups it is. <Hebizuka> [Ammunition] .338 Lapua Magnum, Standard FMJ, 10 rounds - Weight: 0.5 <Reina> Into the backpack with you. <Reina> I'll eat a bit later - for now, more travel. <Hebizuka> [Pack/Main] 86.33 /150 <Hebizuka> [Next rooms] Left: Youkai bedroom (danchi), disaffected // Front: Corridor // Right: Classroom, disaffected <Reina> Bedroom it is. <Hebizuka> *A disaffected danchi. It had enough room and futons for 8 residents. There is a television, a radio and a heated table, but they seem to be non-functional. You spot a frost ant in the room, as well as a box of ammunition that is not on your side. <Reina> @cover <MazeBot> A block of concrete. (Health: 60, LDV modifier: -4. AC Eqv: A3. Pass-through threshold: 10+ dmg.

Your turn ends.* <Hebizuka> *Turn 1.* <Hebizuka> [Order this turn] Frost ant. <Hebizuka> *The frost ant will move in on your side to attempt striking your right hand with one of its legs.* <Hebizuka> @roll 2d6 <MazeBot> Hebizuka: 8 <Hebizuka> *Miss - but just barely.* <Hebizuka> *End of Turn 1.* <Hebizuka> *Turn 2. The frost ant is now on your side of the room. What will you do?* <Reina> I'm gonna blow its head off is what I'm gonna do. <Reina> *Savage, 5 shots, frost ant's torso.* <Hebizuka> *The giant icy ant will attempt striking you again with one of its legs.* <Hebizuka> *Surprisingly it goes again for your right hand very specifically.* <Hebizuka> [Order this turn] Frost ant, you. <Hebizuka> *Frost ant's turn...* <Hebizuka> @roll 2d6 <MazeBot> Hebizuka: 11 <Hebizuka> *Definitely a hit.

The frost ant is bleeding and so are you.* <Hebizuka> *Turn 3. What is your next move?* <Reina> Stop attacking my hand, I NEED THAT TO MASTURBATE. <Reina> *Ithica, 5 shots, frost ant torso.* <Hebizuka> *The giant ant will try attacking your hips with its mandibles.* <Hebizuka> [Order this turn] Frost ant, you.

(3 turns). You're bleeding.* <Reina> Right. One bandage will clear that up, first of all. <Reina> And then I need to pull 10 shells from my vest to reload both shotguns. <Hebizuka> *Set down backpack to apply your last IB?* <Reina> *Yes.* <Hebizuka> *Patch up what? (Right hand, Hips)* <Reina> *Right hand.* <Reina> And then I'll... well, I guess I'll cut up my pimp coat for rags. <Hebizuka> *The pimp vest cannot be torn into rags.* <Reina> *Fine fine, I'll rip up my tank top and put the pimp coat on.* <Hebizuka> *You removed, and tore apart your tank top. You have obtained the following:* <Hebizuka> [Item] Rag. Can be used as a makeshift bandage (50% chance to succeed) or as a molotov cocktail component. - [Quantity: 3] <Reina> The coat makes them look bigger anyways. <Reina> Alright, so - rag 1. <Hebizuka> *Roll a 1d2 to apply the rag like a bandage.* <Reina> @roll 1d2 <MazeBot> Reina: 1 <Hebizuka> *The rag is consumed but has failed to close your wound.* <Hebizuka> *You still have 2 more.* <Reina> Let's try the time warp again. <Reina> @roll 1d2 <MazeBot> Reina: 1 <Reina> Jesus christ. <Hebizuka> *Failure again. One last.* <Reina> @roll 1d2 <MazeBot> Reina: 1 <Hebizuka> *None of your rags managed to close your wound. You've wasted all three.* <Reina> Well that was a huge waste of time. <Reina> Can I cut up the beret, the lab coat, or the pimp pants? <Hebizuka> *There's ammunition on the floor, as well as new items at your feet - mostly spent hulls.* <Hebizuka> *The lab coat can be cut up into rags.* <Reina> Lab coat rags it is. <Hebizuka> *You tore apart the lab coat - what few was left of it, but unfortunately it yields no rags.* <Hebizuka> *The lab coat was too ruined.* <Hebizuka> [Pack/main] 81.23 /150 <Hebizuka> *I did seem to understand you wanted to wear the pimp vest to replace the tank top?* <Reina> *Fuck it, I'm going topless.* <Hebizuka> *Do you still want to reload your weapons?* <Reina> *Yes.* <Hebizuka> *Standard Buck for both your Model 67 and your Ithaca?* <Reina> *Yes. From my backpack, since it's already set down.* <Hebizuka> *You chamberloaded the S/S Model 67. (1 turn). You spent 2 turns to load 4 shells into the S/S Model 67, then another 2 turns to load 5 shells into the Ithaca 37. Total turns spent - 5 ; during which you bleed some more.* <Hebizuka> *Savage/Stevens Model 67: [4+1/4, Buck]* <Hebizuka> *Ithaca 37 Stakeout: [5+1/5,Buck]* <Hebizuka> *12 gauge, standard buck: 18 left in backpack.* <Hebizuka> *What next?* <Reina> Grab the ammo and the hulls, and then let's just - fucking /go./ <Hebizuka> [Ammunition] Box of 9x25mm Dillon, Custom handload (Reg/FMJ/SP), 50 rounds - [27/50] - Weight: 0.54 <Hebizuka> [Handloading] Spent hull, 12 gauge - weight: 0.05 - [Quantity: 3] <Hebizuka> [Pack/Main] 81.42 /150 <Hebizuka> [Next rooms] Left: Pathway // Front: Trash room, abandoned // Right: Empty lobby room, abandoned <Reina> Trash? No thanks. Lobby room it is. <Hebizuka> *You're still losing blood.* <Reina> *I'm a woman, I'm always losing blood.* <Hebizuka> *You enter an abandoned lobby room. There's a desk with a computer here. Searchables: Desk. You also spot an item on the floor.* <Reina> All that effort, and /this/ is what's in the next room. > Reina yoinks it, examines it, all that jazz. <Hebizuka> [Meds] Gauze roll - Can cure up to 10 wounds, 1 per use. - Weight: 1 - [10/10] <Reina> And use. <Hebizuka> *You have patched up your wound to the hips.* <Hebizuka> *You're no longer bleeding.* <Hebizuka> *Gauze roll: 9 uses left* <Reina> And now the desks. <Hebizuka> *Keep the gauze roll in the inventory? If so, where?* <Hebizuka> *The desk is empty. Nothing but dust.* <Reina> *Shove it in the backpack.* <Reina> Let's move on. <Hebizuka> [Pack/Main] 82.42 /150 <Hebizuka> [Next rooms] Front: UA Exit <Reina> Fucking /finally,/ succubus town here I come. <Hebizuka> *Your stomach growls.* <Hebizuka> *You have left the Uncivilized Area and have arrived inside the access corridor of an unfamiliar new town. The signs above the door say "MINETOWN".* <Reina> Oh /fuck off/ Minetown. <Hebizuka> [Doors] North: Town gate. // South: Town exit > Reina sits down and eats her crepe and the canned cod. <Hebizuka> *Setting down backpack...* <Hebizuka> *You ate the crepe and canned cod. The combination is strange, but you are sufficiently hungry anything sounds tasty right now. (+269kcal)* <Hebizuka> *You're no longer feeling hungry, but it was a light meal.* <Reina> Let's just - get inside. <Hebizuka> *Minetown's town gate is guarded by two Maze Citizens - one with a sort of dagger, the other with a short sword. They seem to be blade enthusiasts.* <Reina> So do you guys need to stripsearch me or am I good? <Hebizuka> [Doors] North: Gap corridor // South: Access corridor <Tempest> [Citizen1] Wha? Huh? Uh, no, no, go right in, stranger! Feel free to pass through. <Reina> Dang. I could have used a little loving. <Reina> *North.* <Hebizuka> *The gap corridor.* <Hebizuka> [Doors] North: Access to Social Square - East: Access to Generator // South: Town gate <Reina> Social Square. They really should put in a map or something. <Hebizuka> *Six turns pass, during which you travel to Minetown's Social Square Center, where there is exactly what you're looking for: a town map. Your stomach growls again - a crepe and a small tin of canned fish were not going to last long anyway. There isn't anyone in the social square center - the town seems very quiet.* <Reina> Restraunt first. <Hebizuka> *The town map shows a few places where you can eat: a diner, and a takeout stand.* <Hebizuka> [Note] It is advised you eat well and get a solid amount of nutrition in you - mining will burn through energy a -lot-. <Reina> Diner. <Hebizuka> *You travel 3 turns to the diner...* <Reina> I'll get more bang for my buck. <Hebizuka> *You have entered Minetown's Diner. You're in a dining room. You see a maid sweeping the floor, and a complete absence of clients in the room you're in.* <Reina> Oh, hey. Did it hurt when you fell from Heaven, Ma'am? <Hebizuka> [Doors] North: Kitchen, East: Toilets // South: Back to the Social Square <Tempest> [Maid] Excuse me? <Reina> Because you must be an angel. <Hebizuka> *She was about to welcome you like a client, but she gives you one of those ugly stares, especially pointed at your chest, only barely covered by the kevlar vest.* <Tempest> [Maid] We're not this sort of establishment. If you're not here to order, get outta here. > Reina smiles back with the biggest shit eating grin on her face. "Oh, don't worry, I'm here to order. Was just trying to get dessert ahead of time, too. Anyways - can I have a menu?" <Tempest> [Maid] Yeah, feel free to take any seat you want. <Hebizuka> =Diner - Menu= <Hebizuka> Main courses <Hebizuka> > Small plate of mac and cheese - 15 P$ for 1 plate / ntri: 185kcal <Hebizuka> > Basket of onion rings - 20 P$ for 8 rings / ntri: 27kcal per item (total 216) <Hebizuka> > Grilled chicken salad - 25 P$ for 1 plate / ntri: 264kcal <Hebizuka> > Signature Cheeseburger (single patty) - 30 P$ for 1 burger / ntri: 313kcal <Hebizuka> > Plate of french fries - 35 P$ for 1 plate / ntri: 378kcal <Hebizuka> > Signature Dual Cheeseburger (double patty) - 40 P$ for 1 burger / ntri: 417kcal <Hebizuka> > Large buffalo steak - 55 P$ for 1 plate / ntri: 584kcal <Hebizuka> > Chicken filet sandwich with cheese - 65 P$ for 1 sandwich / ntri: 632kcal <Hebizuka> > Entire roasted beef sirloin - 110 P$ for 1 roast / ntri: 1141kcal <Hebizuka> Desserts <Hebizuka> > Caramel sundae - 30 P$ for 1 cup / ntri: 304kcal <Hebizuka> > Apple pie - 40 P$ for 1 slice (1/6 pie) / ntri: 260kcal (full pie: ~1560kcal if ordered 6 times) <Hebizuka> > Strawberry milkshake - 55 P$ for 1 glass / ntri: 570kcal <Tempest> [Maid] Did you make your choice? Or should I let you choose for a moment? <Reina> Hmmm. Well, angel, you got any recommendations? <Reina> I'm pretty spoiled for choice here, and famished to boot. <Tempest> [Maid] My broom to the derriere if you keep the "angel" crap up. <Reina> Is that a promise~? <Tempest> [Maid] Don't tempt me. <Hebizuka> *What will you order?* <Reina> Mmmm, I'll think about it. But you didn't answer my question s- what should I call you, and what would you recommend? > Reina takes a glance over at the pretty maid. Any nametag? <Tempest> [Maid] The name's Evie. And I don't have any special recommendations. Everything's tasty. <Reina> Oh, alright. One beef sirloin, Evie? > Reina is gonna take a long, lewd gander as Elvie walks away. What's she look like? Besides 'beautiful.' <Hebizuka> *Evie turns heels and disappears north, to inform the chef about the order that just came in.* <Hebizuka> *Evie is an adult, pearl-type female. She is very tall, thin, with shoulder-length silver hair, violet eyes concealed behind a pair of sunglasses, and a noticeable but old and faded bullet wound on the back.* <Hebizuka> *She returns.* <Tempest> [Maid] Chef said to make that a freebie. I have no idea why, but here's your order, free of charge. <Reina> That's - did he like my tits or something? <Reina> And also holy fuck that was fast. <Tempest> [Maid] Nope, she said something I didn't quite understand. Something involving the Admin. So I figure you must be at least half important. <Hebizuka> *She deposits a platter, which she uncovers - the roast is there, ready to be devoured.* <Reina> Well, since I'm a VIP - wanna sit and have a bite? I can order something else, and just pay outta pocket. <Tempest> [Maid] No thanks. <Hebizuka> *The maid-waitress returns to sweeping the floor. There's something weird about a broom with a rifle sling...* > Reina devours her thick, hot, juicy beefcake. <Hebizuka> *A hearty meal indeed! (+1141kcal)* <Hebizuka> *You're no longer hungry - in fact you're more or less back to a semblance of normalcy when it comes to nutrition.* > Reina wipes her lips like a proper lady of the night, and gets up from the table. <Reina> Thanks for everything, Evie; my compliments to the chef! <Reina> And, ah - please, angel, a love tap before I go? <Tempest> *Evie practically pushes you out of the diner with her broom.* <Reina> I'll be back after work! <Tempest> [Evie] Sure, sure, get outta here, sugarlumps. I'm sure you got "work". <Reina> *Alright - to the mines!* <Hebizuka> *Traveling to the Facility Hub... This took 12 turns.* <Hebizuka> *A simple hub room.* <Hebizuka> [Doors] North: Mines, South: Factory // West: Shop hub (or fast travel back to the Social Square) <Reina> Mines it is. <Hebizuka> *You are now in the Mining Facility. The room you just entered is the mining lobby, which also serves as an information office. A miner is behind the lobby desk. There's a lot of flyers, posters, and other documents about jewels and precious treasures.* <Reina> Hey handsome. How do I get my hands on some sweet, sweet family jewels? <Tempest> [Miner] Good morning. You're looking to try your hand at mining, too? <Reina> I like to uncover precious treasures, yes. Just get me a pickaxe and a light and I'm good to go. <Tempest> [Miner] Ah. So you don't have your own supplies. Well then, please direct yourself to the mining supplies store. 3 rooms north, then one west. <Reina> Sure - toodles. <Reina> *To the mining supplies store!* <Tempest> *4 turns pass...* <Hebizuka> *You're now in the mining supplies store. It's a peculiar little store that looks like any other individual shop, except it's manned by another miner.* <Reina> Hey there, handsome. I need a couple tools to help me unearth large, hefty family jewels. <Reina> You got anything for me? <Tempest> [Miner] Sure thing, here's what we have. Are you new to mining? <Reina> How hard can it be - just need a pickaxe and a mining helmet for light, right? <Tempest> [Miner] Yeah, you're definitely new. Lighting isn't the issue - the mineshafts are lit already. You want to make sure you have four very important things: mining tools, food, weapons, and free space. <Reina> Well, I got the latter two in spades, so hook me up with the first two? <Tempest> [Miner] Mining tools include the pick-axe, yes, and this is the one you should use the most. But there's also explosives mining. C4 charges on a patch of ore can be used to blow it off of the bedrock with less effort and time (and energy). Grenades - and really any explosive - also work, but C4 is safer to handle and much more efficient. <Tempest> [Miner] However, explosives are expensive, so unless you're loaded, grab that pick. You need food because mining is tiring. Inventory space because ore is heavy. And good weapons, too. There's critters of all kinds down there. <Reina> Do you sell just the C4, or the detonator too? <Tempest> [Miner] See for yourself. <Hebizuka> =Mining supplies store= <Hebizuka> <Quantity: 105> [Weapon] Class 5 Long - R3/Premium - Pick-axe - Strike (Piercing) - Steel - Weight: 14 <Hebizuka> <Quantity: 8> [Weapon] Class 4 - R2/Regular - Mini C4 charge.

You know how many of these we go through in a week? <Reina> I'd like to buy one, two military rations, and - a mini c4 charge, please. <Reina> One hundred and five? <Tempest> [Miner] No, silly. But it's really a lot. <Reina> Ahhhhh. One hundred and four. <Reina> But yeah, how much is that gonna cost me? <Hebizuka> =BUY= <Hebizuka> Pick-axe, x1 - 400 P$ <Hebizuka> Mini C4 charge, x1 - 750 P$ <Hebizuka> Detonator, x1 - FREE <Hebizuka> Military rations, Regular, x2 - 300 P$ <Hebizuka> TOTAL: 1450 P$ <Reina> Eeeexpensive. But alright. > Reina throws all that cash down on the table. <Tempest> [Miner] I did warn you. But if you're lucky down there, it pays off for itself. <Reina> I get the distinct feeling I won't be lucky. Nevertheless. <Hebizuka> *408 P$ remaining.* <Tempest> [Miner] And here are your purchases. <Hebizuka> [Weapon] Class 5 Long - R3/Premium - Pick-axe - Strike (Piercing) - Steel - Weight: 14 <Hebizuka> [Weapon] Class 4 - R2/Regular - Mini C4 charge.

Detonator placed on the belt as a Key item.* <Hebizuka> *Rations placed into the backpack.* <Hebizuka> *Medieval warhammer unequipped from Primary 2 and placed into the backpack.* <Hebizuka> *Pick-Axe equipped as Primary 2.* <Hebizuka> [Vest/Main] 1/3 <Hebizuka> [Pack/Main] 109.94 /150 <Tempest> [Miner] Anything else? <Reina> Nope. Wish me luck, I'll be back with diamonds and everything. <Reina> *To the actual mines.* <Hebizuka> *Travel 3 rooms to the elevator?* <Reina> *Yes.* <Hebizuka> *Generating mines...* <Hebizuka> *The Minetown mines span across 8 underground levels, with the lobby floor being level 0.* <Hebizuka> *When exploring mines, you may encounter ore patches, monsters, or abandoned supplies from previous miners and adventurers before you.* <Hebizuka> *Using the elevator to navigate between levels takes a turn. Navigating between each mineshaft on a single level also takes a turn.* <Hebizuka> *Mining itself consumes both time and nutrition - so make sure you have food or that you can pace yourself.* <Hebizuka> *Once you have ore in your possession, you may return to Level 0 in order to turn your ore into either money, or metal ingots. You might also encounter gemstone ore, which can be traded for cut gemstones.* <Hebizuka> [Select a mine level] -1 to -8 <Reina> -2. <Hebizuka> *The elevator transports you...* <Hebizuka> *Level -2 has 3 mineshafts you can explore.* <Hebizuka> [Select a mineshaft] A to C <Reina> B. <Hebizuka> *Whenever you select a new, unexplored mineshaft, please roll a 1d100.* <Reina> @roll 1d100 <MazeBot> Reina: 62 <Hebizuka> *You spotted an ore patch. Know that the deeper the mine level, the larger the ore patches can be.* <Reina> *And also more dangerous I imagine.* <Hebizuka> *Bingo.* <Hebizuka> [Ore patch] Native zinc, medium size. <Reina> Alright. pick, meet patch. <Hebizuka> *The size of an ore patch determines how many ore bundles you can extract.* <Hebizuka> *Each ore bundle needs to be mined out. When using a pick-axe, every pick-axe strike will deplete some of your nutrition and 1 point of weapon condition, in exchange for a 20% chance to extract a bundle out of the ore patch, until they've all been mined out.* <Hebizuka> *For this reason, you can specify in advance an amount of pick strikes (which really is an amount of turns you want to spend mining).* <Hebizuka> [How many turns of mining do you want to attempt?] <Reina> 10. <Hebizuka> @roll 10#1d5 <MazeBot> Hebizuka: 4;4;5;4;4;3;4;5;1;4 <Hebizuka> *You strike the patch of native zinc several times, and you manage to dislodge two bundles of native zinc ore, at the cost of time, energy, and a little bit of pick-axe condition.* <Hebizuka> *Once you managed to dislodge at least one bundle of ore, make sure to examine them to check how big they are - and in turn, how valuable you can expect them to be.* <Reina> *I'll go another ten rounds with the ore patch first.* <Hebizuka> @roll 10#1d5 <MazeBot> Hebizuka: 1;4;2;3;4;1;1;5;3;3 <Hebizuka> *This is taking a lot of effort out of you, but you only managed to dislodge one more bundle.* <Hebizuka> *The patch still has a little more to offer.* <Reina> I think I'm done here. <Reina> Alright, what are my spoils? <Hebizuka> [Ore] Native zinc ore bundle, 266 grams - Weight: 0.53 <Hebizuka> [Ore] Native zinc ore bundle, 117 grams - Weight: 0.23 <Hebizuka> [Ore] Native zinc ore bundle, 265 grams - Weight: 0.53 <Reina> Meh. Into the backpack with you. <Reina> Now - Mineshaft C. <Hebizuka> [Pack/Main] 111.23 /150 <Hebizuka> *Traveling to shaft -2/C...* <Hebizuka> *Roll a d100. <Reina> @roll 1d100 <MazeBot> Reina: 33 <Hebizuka> *That's an empty shaft.* <Hebizuka> *You get the impression that you got lucky, for some reason...* > Lunar_Rabbit (Rally@StormBit-0jpoq2.sntcca.sbcglobal.net) has joined <Reina> Mineshaft A, then? <Hebizuka> *d100.* <Reina> @roll 1d100 <MazeBot> Reina: 7 <Hebizuka> *Another empty shaft.* <Hebizuka> *Looks like that's all there is on this level.* <Reina> Welp that was a waste of time. 4th floor it is. <Hebizuka> *Returning to the elevator. Going to Level -4 ?* <Reina> *Yes.* <Hebizuka> [Level -4 has 9 shafts. Go where?] A to I <Reina> A. <Hebizuka> [Ore patch] A large patch of galena. <Reina> 10 strikes it is. <Hebizuka> @roll 10#1d5 <MazeBot> Hebizuka: 1;1;1;3;3;1;5;4;5;1 <Hebizuka> *It's hard, and you're sweating and burning that energy, but you extracted two bundles of galena ore.* <Hebizuka> *The patch has more.* <Reina> *How hungry am I?* <Hebizuka> *You're not feeling hungry yet, but you do have the impression you're going through your reserves much quicker than usual.* <Reina> *Another 10 strikes.* <Hebizuka> @roll 10#1d5 <MazeBot> Hebizuka: 4;1;2;4;2;2;1;5;5;1 <Hebizuka> *Two more big ore bundles have been extracted.

I stink of dust dirt and musk. <Reina> I need a fucking shower, tell me there's a bathhouse somewhere. <Hebizuka> *The elevator took you back to level 0.* <Hebizuka> [Doors] East: R&R room, South: Corridor (links to supply shop) // North: Elevator <Hebizuka> [Fast travel options] R&R room, Mining supplies shop, Jewelry store, Ore bank, Mining lobby <Reina> *Where do I go to cash out these ores? <Hebizuka> *Direct yourself to the ore bank.* <Reina> *ore bank it is.* <Hebizuka> *3 turns pass...* <Hebizuka> *You are now in the Ore Bank, which really does look like an actual bank. There is a miner behind the desk there. Many signs and posters further indicate the purpose of this room. "TURN IN YOUR ORES FOR CASH, INGOTS AND GEMS".* <Hebizuka> [Doors] East: Ore bank vault (locked), South: Information lobby // North: Corridor > Reina slams her thick, heavy load onto the counter. <Reina> So how much for all of this? <Tempest> [Bank miner] Hey there. I heard about you from the colleagues. Nice first haul, huh? <Reina> You heard about me? I'm not /that/ distinctive, am I? <Tempest> [Bank miner] You're a lil' hard to miss, no offense. Anyway! Let me weigh your ores on the scale, so that I can tell you what I can trade it in for. <Reina> Come on, I'm just a regular gal like anyone else. And be careful with those, I definitely want my money's worth. <Tempest> [Bank miner] Relax, I've only been doing this job for... what, 7 years now? Your ore is fine, if it survived a pick-axe, it'll survive my huge, un-gentle burly banker hands. <Tempest> *You detect a tinge of sarcasm at the end of that sentence.* <Reina> Mmmm... your hands /are/ pretty burly. Want to head to the R&R room with me after you fondle my babies? <Tempest> *The bank miner's hands are small and lanky.* <Tempest> [Bank miner] Now you're messing with me. <Reina> A liiiitle~ <Hebizuka> =Ore bank vault - Trading= <Hebizuka> METAL ORE MINED <Hebizuka> Native zinc - 648 grams <Hebizuka> Galena - 4 615 grams <Hebizuka> Chalcopyrite - 6 124 grams <Hebizuka> GEMSTONE ORE MINED <Hebizuka> Malachite - 11 bundles <Hebizuka> (66g, 57g, 229g, 207g, 140g, 247g, 138g, 184g, 171g, 219g, 55g, 132g, 67g) <Hebizuka> VALUE <Hebizuka> Zinc - 648.00 grams <Hebizuka> Iron - 5 829.95 grams <Hebizuka> Sulfur - 2 835.65 grams <Hebizuka> Copper - 2 143.40 grams <Hebizuka> Malachite gemstones: 32 <Tempest> [Bank miner] Well, for a first time, that's not bad. > Reina grins and leans on the counter as he finishes working, letting the cold surface press up against her nearly-nude breasts. "Nearly a kilo and a half, huh? Not bad at all. How was /your/ first time, handsome?" <Tempest> [Bank miner] That's... actually a little above 11 kilograms of ore. <Tempest> [Bank miner] Anyway, serious talk for a moment, so please get off of my desk so you can hear me out. <Tempest> [Bank miner] There's multiple ways you can get paid for all of this, except for gemstone ore. The gemstones will be given to you in full - that's 32 malachites. <Reina> I'm a lot better with the Imperial system. You know, pounds, cups, /inches..../ > Reina gets off his desk, as asked. <Tempest> [Bank miner] Imperial?... Anyway. Metal ore can be traded for either money or ingots. You have a bunch of ores that can be traded for metal ingots, there. For example, Copper ore can be traded as-is ; though note that I will only trade in multiples of ingot weight, since these are fixed, round values. <Tempest> [Bank miner] I see you also brought zinc and iron. If you bring me copper and zinc, I can trade you brass ingots ; brass is more or less 2/3 copper, 1/3 zinc. So for one 250 gram brass ingot, I'll take 167g of copper and 83g of zinc. And so on. <Reina> If the weights don't match up perfectly, do I get the difference in cash? <Tempest> [Bank miner] As for iron, I can trade you straight for steel ingots - we have a deal with factory engineers who have access to a blast furnace - we bring them the stuff, they give us the ingots. And yes, actually. Any difference is paid in money, rounded up where possible. <Reina> Alrighty. If that's the case - make me as much brass as you can, and cash me out for the steel. <Tempest> [Bank miner] Alright, so. Brass ingots, the malachite gemstones, and everything else for cash? Is that right? <Tempest> [Bank miner] Don't want copper ingots? Just making sure. <Reina> Just brass. And maybe your phone number, if you're interested in having a good time? <Tempest> [Bank miner] I don't think so. <Reina> One of these days someone will say yes/ <Reina> . <Hebizuka> CONVERSIONS <Hebizuka> Used 581 grams of zinc and 1169 grams of copper to produce 1750 grams of brass <Hebizuka> 67 grams of zinc: 4 P$ <Hebizuka> 974.4 grams of copper: 365 P$ <Hebizuka> 5829.95 grams of iron: 4081 P$ <Hebizuka> 2835.65 grams of sulfur: 2836 P$ <Hebizuka> PAID TO CONTESTANT <Hebizuka> [Valuable] Green gem - Malachite - Value 35-105 P$ (1d71+34) - Weight: 0.1 - [Quantity: 32] <Hebizuka> [Valuable] Metal - Brass bar, 250g ingot - Value 100 P$ (fixed) - Weight: 0.5 <Hebizuka> [Valuable] Metal - Brass bar, 500g ingot - Value 200 P$ (fixed) - Weight: 1 <Hebizuka> [Valuable] Metal - Brass bar, 1000g ingot - Value 400 P$ (fixed) - Weight: 2 <Hebizuka> [Money] 7286 P$ <Tempest> [Bank miner] Naturally I can transfer the money to your bank account if you don't want to haul that much cash. <Reina> ...I think I just came. <Tempest> *The miner grimaces.* <Reina> Panties. /Soaked./ Juices on the floor. <Reina> Give me a moment to process this. <Tempest> [Bank miner] Well... damn. When people survive their first time in the mines, they certainly pull a range of expressions between "That's great" and "I just won the fucking lottery"... <Reina> I, uh - okay, let me fill up my money pouch first, and then you can transfer all the rest to my bank - wait do I even /have/ a bank account. <Tempest> [Bank miner] But that. That is a first. I've never seen anyone get horny over money. <Tempest> [Bank miner] Well, tell me your name. If you don't have one yet I'll create one. <Reina> Man, you're missing out if you don't get your rocks off on cash. I can take us out for a /real/ good time if you'd like. <Reina> Ah - Reina Miyako-Knight. <Reina> And yours? I never did get your name, I was too busy staring into your eyes. <Tempest> [Bank miner] Eh, you get used to it. I get paid a fat sum for doing this job, you know? I bought myself plenty of shiny new toys, got a ring made out of platinum I mined myself, offered it to my significant other, I even had a rifle inlaid with silver accent that I mined myself... <Tempest> [Bank miner] Yeah, I guess I'm living a pretty awesome life as far as the average Mazer goes! But like I said, you get used to it, and at the end of the day I'm still pulling 12 hour shifts on an office when I'm not out digging new mineshafts. <Tempest> [Bank miner] Oh, and the name is Cole. <Reina> Oh, you're married? <Reina> Dang, sorry about that. I didn't realize. <Tempest> [Bank miner] I know, it's not too obvious. <Reina> I'm not gonna stake a claim on another person's lover. Sorry for making you uncomfortable. <Reina> Though, uh - if you have a son or daughter you could introduce me to... <Tempest> [Bank miner] Ahem! Idle chat aside. Anyway, you said you wanted enough to fill up your money pouch then have me send the rest to your account? <Tempest> [Bank miner] And uh, I do have a son, but he's 7. Still in the kid pen. <Reina> Mmmm... that's a bit too young even for me. Shame - and yeah, fill up my money pouch bank the rest. <Tempest> [Bank miner] Thought as much. Anyway, one moment... <Hebizuka> [Money] 1592 P$ <Hebizuka> *Total carried: 2000 in pouch* <Hebizuka> *5694 P$ transferred to bank account.* <Hebizuka> [Bank account] 5694 P$ <Reina> Though being a halfling means I age pretty well, so if you ever want me to make him a man early~ <Tempest> [Bank miner] Now you're being plain weird. <Tempest> [Bank miner] And there, done. Your account is in order and supplied with your money. <Tempest> [Bank miner] Anything else I can do for you? <Reina> I like to think of it as forward thinking. And, not at the moment. I'll try to be back with more ores later. <Tempest> [Bank miner] Alrighty then. Have a nice day! > Reina sashays as she walks away, gratuitiously exposing her hips and ass as she heads for the R&R room. <Reina> First, a shower, /then/ the factory. <Tempest> [Bank miner] Oh! Wait! <Reina> Ah - ? <Reina> Oh man, did I leave the ingots behind /again?/ <Tempest> [Bank miner] Yes, you did! And I almost forgot! I got something for you. Gosh, I'm sorry. Your name clicked in my head, but I just remembered why now - the Admin in person has a gift for you. <Hebizuka> [Valuable] Metal - Lead bar, 1000g ingot - Value 150 P$ (fixed) - Weight: 2 <Reina> Oh boy, another gift. I'm starting to think she wants me. <Reina> Thaaaat's a lot of lead. > Reina shoves it into her backpack, along with all the other ingots. <Hebizuka> *32 malachite gemstones, 3 brass ingots and 1 lead ingot placed into Pack/Main.* <Hebizuka> [Pack/Main] 114.64/150 <Reina> *Ugh, fine, to the factory. I know your ammo making game, Hebi.* <Hebizuka> *Mo' ammo, mo' problems.* <Hebizuka> *Fast traveling to the exit. 2 turns pass.* <Hebizuka> *You're now in the facility hub. Door to the Mines to the north, door to the Factory to the south.* <Reina> *South it is.* <Hebizuka> *You are now in the lobby room of an ammunition factory. An engineer stands in front of the desk, as if waiting for someone - in fact, he seems to be waiting for you.* <Reina> Wait, let me guess. <Reina> A pretty snake lady with a great ass told you to look out for a big titted racoon halfling. <Hebizuka> *The engineer flat out does a military salute.* <Reina> ...Wasn't expecting /that/ holy fuck. <Tempest> [Engie] Engineer Dave Golding, at your service, ma'am! The Administrator in person told me that I, and this entire facility, should be at your service! <Tempest> [Engie] I was told that you are to be explained about the production of casings and projectiles for handloading. <Reina> You are way too hype to be at the beck and call of a giantess with her tits hanging out. <Reina> Unless you're into that sorta thing, Mister Golding. <Reina> But lead the way, I have ingots to smelt. <Tempest> [Engie] Excellent! Let's start with the production of casings. What caliber would you like casings for? <Reina> 12 Gauge regular, none of that CAWS bullshit. <Tempest> [Engie] Alright then. 12 gauge hulls aren't all-brass, you need brass for the base, but also plastic sheets to make the proper hull. Do you have a box of plastic sheets handy? <Reina> Nooooooope. I heard on the vine that you sold them, though? <Tempest> [Engie] They're sold in workshops, yes ; but fear not, your servitor has one! <Hebizuka> *He fishes out in his dump belt, and throws you an item.* <Hebizuka> [Item] Box of plastic sheets. Contains 50 flat plastic sheets designed to be rolled and crimped into a tube shape, for the production of shotshell hulls. <Reina> Great. So do I do all of this myself, or do I hand you the supplies and watch you guys work the metal? <Tempest> [Engie] You have nothing to do aside from handing me the primary materials. Me and my team in the rest of the factory will essentially work for you. <Tempest> [Engie] Anyway. In order to produce a batch of 12 gauge hulls, I will need that box of plastic sheets, and at least 250 grams of brass. If you have ingots of a bigger variety, I will give you back the difference in smaller ingots. > Reina hands him all three brass ingots. <Reina> Just make as many as you can. <Hebizuka> *The engineer hands them back to you, except the 250g ingot.* <Tempest> [Engie] Well, with just one box of sheets, I can only make one batch. But you will see that it's plenty. <Tempest> [Engie] While I'm at it, would you like to produce projectiles as well? <Tempest> [Engie] Projectiles for a rifle or pistol caliber, maybe? Or perhaps you'd like me to produce shot or slugs. <Reina> I got 1000 grams of lead, which I can use for buckshot, I believe? > Reina just stares at him and points to her two shotguns. <Reina> Does it /look/ like I'm investing in rifles here. <Tempest> [Engie] I can use lead ingots to make bare lead projectiles, yes. Buck, Slug, Lead, LSWC and LSWCHP. <Tempest> [Engie] Oh, ma'am, I don't know! I'm not here to assume, only to help you! <Reina> Well, it's a good thing you look pretty. Can you help me with something special when we're done here? > Reina hands him the lead ingot in the meantime. <Reina> Buckshot, please. <Tempest> [Engie] That depends, I'm not allowed to do anything unrelated to factory work. The Admin was very clear about that. <Reina> Well, we'll be making something, so I'm sure she won't mind. <Tempest> [Engie] A full kilogram of lead... Alright. I can make two batches of buckshot pellets. That represents about 200 pellets. Is this fine? <Reina> Sounds good to me. <Tempest> [Engie] Be warned that this is breaking the lead ingot apart. You will not be getting it back. 2 batches of buckshot pellets will consume 686 grams of lead - there's still 314 grams to work with, if you want me to make a batch of other projectiles... though with that little left it would only be small pistol or rifle bullets. <Reina> Ughhhhhhhhhhhhh, fine. Can you make .44 Magnum? <Tempest> [Engie] I'm afraid not. I need 778g of lead to make one batch of .429, 240 grain projectiles. <Reina> Just - fine, whatever, just make me the projectile that has the highest monetary cost. <Tempest> [Engie] Okay so... with 314 grams of lead, the most valuable projectiles I can have you made is a batch of .355, 95 grain projectiles. That's for .380 ACP. <Tempest> [Engie] It will consume 308 grams of lead, leaving us with 6 grams that I'm sure it'll be okay if I scrap. <Reina> Sounds good to me. <Tempest> [Engie] Very well. Let's review quickly... <Hebizuka> =Ammunition factory= <Hebizuka> CONSUMING <Hebizuka> 250g brass bar <Hebizuka> 1 box of plastic sheets <Hebizuka> 1000g lead bar <Hebizuka> OBTAINING <Hebizuka> 50x 12 gauge hulls (1 batch) <Hebizuka> 200x 00 buckshot pellet (2 batches) <Hebizuka> 50x .355, 95 grain, Lead projectiles (1 batch) <Reina> So does this usually cost money? <Reina> Because I don't see you guys getting reimbursed for your services. <Tempest> [Engie] No, ma'am. This is part of our daily work. We're paid already for this. <Hebizuka> *Confirm the order?* <Reina> *Yes.* <Hebizuka> *He salutes once more, then takes away your materials, before disappearing through a door to the north.* <Hebizuka> *A mere few moments later...* <Tempest> [Engie] I'm back, ma'am!
