From Mazeworld

[10:42] <&Hebizuka> *As usual the startgame story can be seen here: http://mazeworld.net/wiki/Startgame#The_story - we will move on with the startgame questions right away. Feel free to take your time ; and reply honestly!* [10:44] <&Hebizuka> Question 1: Which one of those styles do you like the most? [10:44] <&Hebizuka> A) The action hero [10:44] <&Hebizuka> B) The laidback sniper [10:44] <&Hebizuka> C) The rogue cop [10:44] <&Hebizuka> D) The mercenary [10:44] <&Hebizuka> E) The survivalist [10:44] <&Hebizuka> F) The magnificent bastard [10:44] <&Hebizuka> G) The iron fist authority figure [10:44] <&Hebizuka> H) The free-spirited avenger [10:44] <&Hebizuka> I) The psycho [10:44] <Tasia> There's a few of those that I like! But I'll roll with [h] Free-spirited avenger. [10:48] * &Hebizuka 's loudspeaker creaks a bit as she speaks. [10:48] <&Hebizuka> H it is, then. Why not. [10:49] <&Hebizuka> Question 2: If you could change your lifestyle and stick forever to it, what would you pick? [10:49] <&Hebizuka> A) Living in a ranch in Texas, with a wife/husband, a dog, a pick-up truck with the gun rack, and a barbecue every weekend [10:49] <&Hebizuka> B) Moving to the jungles in Africa and becoming the friend of gorillas and chimpanzees [10:49] <&Hebizuka> C) Getting a flamboyant house near a French beach and enjoy the beach view every day of the year [10:49] <&Hebizuka> D) Become a Greenpeace member and endlessly fight for nature's sake (even though she asked you for nothing) [10:49] <&Hebizuka> E) Become the owner of your very own brand of beer, and have it known as the "most hardcore beer" in the world [10:49] <&Hebizuka> F) Move to Japan and become the owner of a hot springs bath [10:50] <Tasia> I grew up on a poisonous ocean world where the only wildlife was an array of bacteria. Biospheres are the most valuable treasures there are. [d] for sure, even though the others seem nice, they're too much of a luxury. [10:51] <&Hebizuka> Question 3: The fate of a popular teen idol derided by critics for terrible singing, is in your hands. You... [10:51] <&Hebizuka> A) Think he should be respected as a role model for the future generations [10:51] <&Hebizuka> B) Hang him [10:51] <&Hebizuka> C) Hang and shoot him [10:51] <&Hebizuka> D) Subject him to waterboarding [10:51] <&Hebizuka> E) Force him to wear nothing but a collar, walk on all fours and bark like a dog while following you around [10:52] <Tasia> He's probably an arrogent cunt, but he hasn't done /me/ any harm. [e] might teach him some humility and that could do him some good. [10:52] <&Hebizuka> Ooh. I like your style. [10:53] <Tasia> I don't listen to pop music so probably would have no idea who he is! [10:53] <&Hebizuka> Question 4: You have received 500 dollars to spend in any store of your area. You spend it on… [10:53] <&Hebizuka> A) Groceries for the next two months [10:53] <&Hebizuka> B) Spend it on designer clothes and finally look wear as rich and secure as you always wished to be [10:53] <&Hebizuka> C) That latest-generation workout machine to spend two-thirds of your time training on [10:53] <&Hebizuka> D) Wal-Mart ammunition and an extra rifle for plinking in your backyard [10:53] <&Hebizuka> E) That small store with the hard rock music and the very cool selection of biker accessories [10:53] <&Hebizuka> F) The perfect cosplay outfit of your favorite anime character [10:53] <&Hebizuka> G) Food, supplies, shotgun ammunition, a guide on how to survive the zombie apocalypse, and anxiolytics to overcome paranoia [10:55] <Tasia> Practicality is the way to go - I'll pick [a] since it's the one thing I know I'd get 100% use out of, and it'll definitely keep me alive. [10:56] <Tasia> Guns may or may not be needed, but food is always going to be necessary [10:56] <&Hebizuka> Question 5: If you could choose only song genre to listen to for those long trips on the highway, it would be... [10:56] <&Hebizuka> A) Classic and/or driving rock, or something equivalent you'd listen on the go, so every highway is Route 66 and every meal is a T-Bone steak [10:56] <&Hebizuka> B) Upbeat, adrenaline-pumping electro house music, because every night is "Outrun cops" night [10:56] <&Hebizuka> C) Fast-paced 1980's hard rock, because every road is like your own personal race track [10:56] <&Hebizuka> D) Old-school 1990's hip-hop, because only true street rats - such as you - know how to keep it real [10:56] <&Hebizuka> E) Classical music, particularly dramatic pieces (Overture 1818, the Soviet national anthem), because these are the only true sounds for you [10:56] <&Hebizuka> F) Marijuana reggae and other kinds of feel-good music, because you don't have to put up with road rage [10:56] <&Hebizuka> G) Chicago house music or some other form of underground club music, because you cultivate an underground attitude [10:56] <&Hebizuka> H) Something nobody has heard of, because you are a hipster [10:57] <Tasia> [e], since I can play it myself! [h] is a good backup choice, though. [10:57] <&Hebizuka> E it is then? [10:58] * Tasia is an amateur violinist, so yes. [10:58] <&Hebizuka> Very well, then. [10:58] <&Hebizuka> Question 6: When you are faced with a problem or an issue in your day-to-day life, what words describe best the way you deal with it? [10:58] <&Hebizuka> A) Honorably, driven by a code of conduct [10:58] <&Hebizuka> B) Like a boss, awesomely, with style [10:58] <&Hebizuka> C) Righteously, with gallantry [10:58] <&Hebizuka> D) Soldierly, patriotically [10:58] <&Hebizuka> E) Dutifully, selflessly, as a second-nature [10:58] <&Hebizuka> F) Affectionately, compassionately [10:59] <Tasia> After spending much of my life on a ship's crew (and while not teaching myself violin), [e] was my daily life. [11:00] <Tasia> Moths out there in the black make it all blend together and become just like breathing. [11:00] <Tasia> Months* [11:00] <&Hebizuka> Moths? Moths are horrible. Oh. OH! Months! [11:00] <&Hebizuka> My bad! I misheard that. [11:01] <&Hebizuka> Question 7: You are stranded on an island, and you can have only one of the following. You pick… [11:01] <&Hebizuka> A) Your loved one [11:01] <&Hebizuka> B) A satellite phone [11:01] <&Hebizuka> C) A survival knife [11:01] <&Hebizuka> D) A guide about exotic plants [11:01] <&Hebizuka> E) A solar-powered radio with a selection of reggae music [11:01] <&Hebizuka> F) Enough fuel to transform the island into a gigantic bonfire [11:02] <Tasia> Why stay on the island and worry about survival when I can just call for a ride? [b] it is! [11:03] <&Hebizuka> Question 8: We are in the 17th century, and you're well-known among pirates and corsairs for… [11:03] <&Hebizuka> A) Your bone-chilling smile of gold and silver [11:03] <&Hebizuka> B) Your large hands covered in bracelets (which are very good at choking) [11:03] <&Hebizuka> C) Your two flintlock pistols, symbol of a very early lineage of cowboys and dual-wielding psychos [11:03] <&Hebizuka> D) Your galleon called "The Island Crusher" [11:03] <&Hebizuka> E) Your enormous cannon you nicknamed "Mama" [11:03] <&Hebizuka> F) Your immense wealth and fleet of successful merchant ships [11:03] <Tasia> Not much has changed between then and my old life... [d] is right up my alley! [11:04] <Tasia> The name's a bit silly, though. [11:04] <&Hebizuka> How would you name your galleon? [11:04] <Tasia> Something a bit more elegant and poetic. [11:05] <&Hebizuka> Oh, oh, I know. "The Royal Fleet Murderer." Elegant AND poetic. [11:05] * &Hebizuka is obviously sarcastic. [11:05] <&Hebizuka> Let's move on to the next question before I go full arrrr. [11:06] <&Hebizuka> Question 9: Which of those vehicles reflect best your tastes? [11:06] <&Hebizuka> A) The expensive, high-performance sports car [11:06] <&Hebizuka> B) The ultra comfortable luxury sedan [11:06] <&Hebizuka> C) The family-oriented minivan with 7 seats [11:06] <&Hebizuka> D) The ultra-powerful, ultra-maniable sports bike [11:06] <&Hebizuka> E) The riced-up import car with a paintjob customized according to your tastes [11:06] <&Hebizuka> F) The ambulance (or another form of rescue vehicle) [11:06] <&Hebizuka> G) The limousine with personal chauffeur [11:07] <Tasia> Well, [d] would be an accurate analogy to my old ship, if motorbikes were equipped with missiles... [11:07] <Tasia> Hey, can I get a motorbike with missiles attached? That'd be shiny. [11:08] <&Hebizuka> If we needed any vehicles in here I'd -probably- have done that. [11:08] <&Hebizuka> Buuuuut I think you'll still like what you're getting. [11:08] <&Hebizuka> Question 10: It's your birthday and you received a mystery gift. You open it and find... [11:08] <&Hebizuka> A) An unexpected but actually very useful and practical item which you end up using every day [11:08] <&Hebizuka> B) Something that happens to be an item you've always wanted - and you suspect the senders knew exactly what you wanted [11:08] <&Hebizuka> C) A basket full of food and comfortable clothes of your size [11:08] <&Hebizuka> D) Appropriate clothes for a cosplay or a disguise of your favorite fictional character [11:08] <&Hebizuka> E) A wad of cash (or equivalent currency) [11:08] <&Hebizuka> F) The war relics of that ancestor in your family who fought during a war generations ago [11:09] <Tasia> I think [a] sounds like the ideal gift to me. Again, practicality. [11:11] <&Hebizuka> Question 11: Friends come ringing at your door at 10 PM, they want you to join them at a party, but you had other plans. You finally decide to… [11:11] <&Hebizuka> A) Go to this party; might be some hot chicks/boys to check out [11:11] <&Hebizuka> B) Go to this party and buy everyone drinks; to be the king/queen of the night! [11:11] <&Hebizuka> C) Tell them to get lost; you never go to parties anyway [11:11] <&Hebizuka> D) Don't answer and lock yourself up at home; the computer is your friend [11:11] <&Hebizuka> E) Tell them you'll join them later yourself, then go to the party with a shotgun; That'll teach them to respect YOUR plans [11:11] <&Hebizuka> F) Greet your friends with your shotgun and threaten to shoot them if they don't leave; It could be a trap from the CIA! [11:12] <Tasia> I'd like to answer [a], but in reality my answer would usually be [d]. [11:12] <Tasia> Though [f] is an option as well! [11:12] <&Hebizuka> ...So, which will it be? [11:13] <Tasia> I'll go with [d], since even though I have reasons to be paranoid, there /are/ my friends after all. [11:13] <Tasia> And yet I don't really "party" much. [11:13] <&Hebizuka> *The next and final question is meta.* [11:13] <Tasia> Socialiing is for other people. [11:14] <&Hebizuka> Question 12: Which mission set do you want to attempt? [11:14] <&Hebizuka> A) Normal missions - Recommended for new players. Be part of an intricate archaeological plot full of uncanny surprises, in order to uncover a huge treasure. [11:14] <&Hebizuka> B) Alternate missions - Recommended for seasoned players. Participate in the human-youkai conflict as an ally of youkai activists and defeat their life-long enemies: the military. [11:14] <&Hebizuka> C) Proxy missions - Recommended fo veteran players. Join a military squad and climb the ranks. Objective: Defeat a powerful youkai activist group at all costs... and against all odds. [11:14] <&Hebizuka> D) Contracts - Recommended for players seeking a freer, less-linear progression. Become a contractor and complete various unrelated jobs as they're offered to you, for fame and money. [11:14] <Tasia> [a] sounds like what I'm here for! I think. If I even know what I'm here for, [11:15] <&Hebizuka> Very well. [11:15] <Tasia> It sounds fun, anyway, and I /am/ a new player. [11:15] <&Hebizuka> I am sending an engineer pushing a cart full of crates, inside those crates is your equipment. You will not stay naked and unarmed for long anymore. [11:15] <Tasia> Hooray! Uh- I won't have to wear the crates, will I? [11:15] <&Hebizuka> No, dont worry.~ [11:16] <Tasia> Good, because it's a little chilly in here. [11:16] <&Hebizuka> *Literally seconds afterwards, someone barges in the room through the only door there is here; someone who is, as expected, wearing the clothes of an engineer, pushing a cart with half a dozen boxes inside.* [11:17] <~SU_Tempest> [Engie] I've got a shipment and a letter for... er... Whoa, I can't read that name. Anas... Nast... Fuck it. Are your initials "A.K.V."? That's faster that way. [11:17] * Tasia dashes up and starts rooting through the crates, using the lid of one to cover herself until she finds the clothing. [11:17] <Tasia> Yes, yes, that's me! [11:18] <Tasia> I'm the only person here, anyway, but yeah. Call me Tasia. [11:18] <~SU_Tempest> [Engie] Oh okay okay. Er... yeah. Don't mind me. I'm used to this, I barely stare anymore. And okay, I'll call you that. So uh, here's your letter ( http://pastebin.com/Nyf6qeez )... And sift through your stuff, all of those crates are yours. [11:20] <&Hebizuka> *There are 8 boxes of various sizes and kinds, numbered accordingly. We'll go through each in order - the contents of the first one are considered to be automatically equipped, but everything else is your choice; state clearly what you're taking.* [11:21] <&Hebizuka> *First crate:* [11:21] <&Hebizuka> =Load-bearing equipment= [11:21] <&Hebizuka> [LBE] (Utility belt) Default belt: Capacity 0 units + Key items (Can carry key items) [11:21] <&Hebizuka> [LBE] (Backpack) Field pack: Capacity 40 units [11:22] <Tasia> Mmmkay.

[11:35] <Tasia> Guess I'll equip the tazer too, if I can to that. [11:35] <&Hebizuka> Sure you can. [11:35] <&Hebizuka> *You equip the previously spared Taser X26c.* [11:36] <&Hebizuka> *Your backpack is now empty again!* [11:36] <&Hebizuka> *Crate #5* [11:36] <&Hebizuka> =Ammunition= [11:36] <&Hebizuka> [Weapon accessory] Magazine: Para P-14.45 14-round magazine.

[11:38] <&Hebizuka> *Yes.* [11:38] <&Hebizuka> (On the weapons' event lines, between []'s is usually how much ammo is inside.) [11:39] <&Hebizuka> [Weight] (Pack/main inv) 0.78/40 [11:39] * Tasia stuffs the pistol magazine into the belt (or back left pocket if it doesn't fit in the belt) and the tazer cartridges into a pocket on the pack [11:39] <Tasia> (mmkay.)

There isn't much you can do with them, unless you were a cat in which case you could make it your home. But it's not and you're not a cat.* [11:47] <&Hebizuka> [Weight] (Pack/main inv) 7.98/40 [11:47] <&Hebizuka> Well, if you're ready, then I bid you good luck in finding the Amulets! Try not to die too soon. [11:48] <&Hebizuka> *Welcome to the Mazes, Tasia. Type !mrooms3 then pick a door to begin.* [11:49] <Tasia> !mrooms3 [11:49] <&Hebizuka> [ Tasia ] Left door: 3377 - Front door: 2000 - Right door: 4347 - Roomstyle: 540 - Enemy strength: 4 /6 [11:51] * Tasia draws the .45 and holds it at her side, as she opens the front door warily. [11:51] <Tasia> The game is afoot. [11:52] <&Hebizuka> *Your first room is... toilets. WC cabins, urinals, a sink, a mirror, and that annoying smell of disinfectant. At least it's not dirty. Someone left clothing on the floor...* [11:53] * Tasia will inspect the clothing, prodding it with her foot [11:53] <&Hebizuka> [Clothing] Top - Military T-shirt, urban camo (Upper body, Shoulders) - AC Light - Blunt-resistant, Sharp-resistant - Weight: 3 - [Condition: Ruined] [11:54] <Tasia> Does it look clean? Could I rip it up to possibly use for extra bandages? [11:56] <Tasia> Eh, nevermind, probably not worth the trouble, [11:56] <Tasia> !mrooms3 [11:56] <&Hebizuka> [ Tasia ] Left door: 4716 - Front door: 7317 - Right door: 1873 - Roomstyle: 481 - Enemy strength: 4 /6 [11:56] <&Hebizuka> *The t-shirt looks pitiful; torn and full of holes. It's not particularly clean. You could tear them into rags but they won't make suitable bandages.* [11:57] * Tasia will go..... right, this time. Still with pistol at the ready. [11:58] <&Hebizuka> *You make it inside a library. There's a bunch of shelves, full of books each, with signage pointing out book categories. There is nobody here... though you do spot a shiny item left on the unoccupied librarian's desk.* [11:58] * Tasia does a double-check to make sure it's unoccupied. [11:58] <&Hebizuka> *You find absolutely no-one in any of the alleys or at the librarian's desk. The computer at said desk isn't even on.* [11:58] <Tasia> Once satisfied, I'll inspect the "shiny" item [11:59] <&Hebizuka> [Valuable] Red gem - Unidentified - Weight: 0.1 [11:59] * Tasia pops it into her backpack! [11:59] <&Hebizuka> [Weight] (Pack/main inv) 8.08/40 [12:00] * Tasia tries turning the computer on - probably won't be familiar with the software, since it looks archaic, but it's worth a try. [12:01] <Tasia> Pistol resting on the desk near the KB, in easy reach. [12:01] <Tasia> Let's see if this machine works and what it can tell me! [12:01] <&Hebizuka> *You hear the computer whine as it is turned on, but as soon as it passes power-on self test, a message appears: "Disk read error - press enter to reboot". It appears the hard drive is not working.* [12:01] <Tasia> Damn! [12:02] * Tasia flips it back off. I don't have the time and security to pull it apart and fix it, nevermind the tools... [12:02] * Tasia does a cursory scan of the bookshelves for any books that look relevant to the Maze [12:04] <&Hebizuka> *The library looks surprisingly poor in books pertaining to MzW history; you find one which catches your eye.* [12:05] * Tasia will take it back to the desk and flip through it [12:06] <Tasia> Knowing is half the battle, after all. [12:06] <&Hebizuka> *It's titled "Semper Pugnare - A brief look at the Maze Military's history". The book gives introductory information about the military.* [12:07] <Tasia> Since nobody's around, I'll slip this book into my pack and move on. [12:07] <&Hebizuka> *You learn that members of the military wear urban camouflage, except for members of the elite "Death Faction" unit, which are clad in desert camo.

But we found huge lacerations on his legs and his arms. It looked like some sort of monster attacked him. I'm glad he is still alive... [12:35] <Tasia> "I'll be on the lookout for such a monster, then. Say, do you have medical supplies available here for sale or trade?" [12:35] <~SU_Tempest> [Nurse] As a matter of fact, I do.

[12:55] * Tasia walks up to the group. "Hello. Are you looking for someone?" [12:56] <~SU_Tempest> [Citz1] Hi ma'am. Yeah, we were supposed to have a fourth guy to teach a bit of shooting lessons with us. Scrawny dude, early 20s... but something probably happened to him. We've been waiting for a hour. [12:56] <~SU_Tempest> [Citz2] I say screw him and give our lessons to the lady! [12:56] <Tasia> "Hmm... I haven't seen anyone like that.... but alright, I suppose I could use some brush-up lessons." [12:57] <~SU_Tempest> [Citz2] Awesome, I will finally put to use the gear I brought. No need to spend your own ammo, aight? [12:57] <Tasia> "Sounds like a good deal to me!" [12:58] <Tasia> Do I get any intuitive impression that this might be a trap? [12:58] <&Hebizuka> *The group invites you to take a spot at the shooting booths.

[12:59] <~SU_Tempest> [Citz1] So, ever shot before? Or is it your first time? [13:00] <Tasia> "I have, but it's been quite a while." (not actually that long, but still.)

[13:02] <Tasia> "Okay, I'm ready." [13:02] <~SU_Tempest> [Citz1] Aight. We'll play a shooting game. See that target? You score points depending on where you hit it. Chest/body is 10 points, arms and legs are 4, hands and feet are 5, and the hardest targets to hit are the crotch (30 points), and the head, of course, which is worth 50. [13:03] <Tasia> "Got it." [13:03] <~SU_Tempest> [Citz1] You have two mags, which is 20 rounds. See how many points you get.

And you are out of ammo.* [13:13] <Tasia> "Hey, I think I'm getting this down. Thanks!" [13:13] <~SU_Tempest> [Citz1] Glad to see that. Would you like to try a bigger toy? [13:13] <Tasia> "Sure."

[13:40] <&Hebizuka> *The maid sees you but doesn't say a thing, nor seem to care much.* [13:40] <&Hebizuka> [Weapon] Class 2 - Serbu Super-Shorty shotgun | 12 gauge - Pump-action | M.Brake | Internal tube, 2 rounds, +1 | Weight: 5 - [1+1/2, 2x Flechette] - Cond: Bad / Clns: Dirty [13:41] <~SU_Tempest> [Maid] *Mutters something barely audible.* [13:41] <Tasia> Guess I'll take it - doesn't look all that reliable, but it could be useful anyway. [13:42] <&Hebizuka> *Class 2 weapon equipped.* [13:43] <Tasia> Especially with just two shots... eh, if they're two shots that I wouldn't have without it, then sure. [13:43] <&Hebizuka> *It even has an obnoxious muzzle brake.* [13:43] <&Hebizuka> *The maid feigns not to be interested in what you're doing, but you can see a look full of suspicion on her face.* [13:44] * Tasia waves at the maid. "Good work, miss."

Instead you see yet another piece of clothing left on the floor.* [13:47] <Tasia> What's the clothing like? If it's ruined, I'll rip it up and use the rags to attempt to clean this shotgun as best as possible, [13:47] <&Hebizuka> [Clothing] Footwear - Steel-toe safety boots - AC Hardskin - Blunt-PROOF, Sharp-PROOF, Piercing-resistant - Weight: 14 - [Condition: Good] [13:47] <Tasia> Ooh. [13:47] <Tasia> I'm wearing those if they fit. [13:48] <Tasia> Good find. [13:48] <&Hebizuka> *They do, and you can swap out your regular shoes for these boots. Do so?* [13:48] <Tasia> But I'll check to make sure there's nothing weird inside like rat-traps or needles [13:48] <&Hebizuka> *They appear clean and free of nasty surprises.* [13:48] <Tasia> or scorpions [13:48] <&Hebizuka> *They don't even smell bad.* [13:48] <Tasia> or... [13:48] <Tasia> Okay, yes, swap my sneakers for these.

An outside area, daytime forest. You spot a creature here... it appears to be a fox. You also spot a metallic box near a tree...* [13:54] * Tasia keeps her eyes on the fox, and approaches the metallic box. [13:54] <Tasia> Examining it for traps. [13:55] <&Hebizuka> *No traps of any sort that you can detect. The fox sits down near a tree stump and observes you with curious eyes.* [13:55] * Tasia opens the bok and looks inside. [13:55] <Tasia> box* [13:56] <&Hebizuka> [Ammunition] Belted ammunition box, 7.62x51mm NATO, 100 rounds.

Not useful to me now, but might be sellable. [13:57] * Tasia takes. [13:58] <&Hebizuka> [Weight] (Pack/main inv) 13.26/40 [13:59] <&Hebizuka> *The fox hasn't moved one bit. It seems used to seeing human presence.* [13:59] * Tasia glances up at the sky, and enjoys the open air for a bit before looking for another door. [14:00] <Tasia> Actually, how's my hunger level? [14:00] <&Hebizuka> *You feel okay, not particularly hungry for now.* [14:00] <Tasia> Ok.

[14:02] <&Hebizuka> *You barge in a bedroom. Which appears to be currently unoccupied. There's of course a bed, but also a desk, a small TV set (@whatsonTV) and a radio (@radio). You also spot some sort of bag on the bedside...* [14:03] * Tasia looks in the bag. [14:03] <&Hebizuka> *Empty! Sadly.* [14:04] <Tasia> Pff. /me turns on the radio [14:04] <Tasia> @radio [14:04] <MazeBot> [Alternative/Punk rock] Generation Kill FM with DJ Dexter - http://bit.ly/1cQC9b7 [14:04] * Tasia turns that back off and checks the [14:05] <Tasia> @whatsonTV [14:05] <MazeBot> [News] Youkai World News - Pro-youkai news channel [14:05] <Tasia> Let's see what these youkai are all about!

Two kitsune have been found raped and shot in their own bedrooms by neighbors. The police has once again refused to get involved - the local community suspects it is a racial hit perpetrated by an anti-youkai group. More as it develops..." [14:09] <~SU_Tempest> [TV] "Reminder to all youkai living in Sector 17 to visit gun shops and help each other if you suspect a friend, a family member, or anyone you know to be the victim of human violence. Our thoughts and prayers to the families and friends of today's victims." [14:09] <~SU_Tempest> *A jingle is heard, before commercials about random products start appearing.* [14:10] * Tasia makes a note to be cautious around things that don't look human, they might be jumpy [14:10] * Tasia turns the TV off [14:10] <Tasia> !mrooms3 [14:10] <&Hebizuka> [ Tasia ] Left door: 5587 - Front door: 3109 - Right door: 5942 - Roomstyle: 555 - Enemy strength: 6 /6 [14:10] <Tasia> Right door.

You spot a box of ammo on the desk; which seems familiar.* [14:12] * Tasia checks out the box of ammo [14:12] <&Hebizuka> [Ammunition] Taser cartridges, 25 rounds - weight 2.5 [14:12] * Tasia takes. [14:12] <&Hebizuka> *Total taser cartridges carried: 30* [14:13] <&Hebizuka> [Weight] (Pack/main inv) 15.76/40 [14:13] <Tasia> !mrooms3 [14:13] <&Hebizuka> [ Tasia ] Left door: 1467 - Front door: 813 - Right door: 3207 - Roomstyle: 54 - Enemy strength: 4 /6 [14:13] * Tasia goes left. [14:15] <&Hebizuka> *A regular, featureless room. MORE clothing awaits on the floor. But there's also a person here, dressed in combat gear and carrying what appears to be a sniper rifle as main weapon. [14:15] <Tasia> Uh oh. [14:15] <Tasia> Does he see me? [14:16] <&Hebizuka> *Not yet. That person seems to be leaning against the wall, relaxing with a cigarette between the lips. As though he is waiting for someone.* [14:16] <Tasia> How far away? [14:17] <&Hebizuka> *A certain distance away, near one of the corners of the room. He looks... laid-back.* [14:18] * Tasia decides that he's probably not /too/ hostile then.... but will back out of the door. [14:18] <Tasia> With any luck, he won't know I was here if I close the door slowly and quietly and go a different direction. [14:19] <&Hebizuka> *The door somehow refuses to be opened again.* [14:19] * Tasia looks around for more doors [14:19] <Tasia> !mrooms3 [14:19] <&Hebizuka> [ Tasia ] Left door: 6273 - Front door: 7047 - Right door: 3858 - Roomstyle: 28 - Enemy strength: 2 /6 [14:19] <Tasia> Which way is he facing - could I reach another door without going in front of him? [14:20] <&Hebizuka> *If you wish to pick another door without being noticed, you will need to roll a 2d6 to attempt a stealthy escape. If it's failed, the man will see you - with no guarantee as to how he will react.* [14:20] <Tasia> Uff. [14:20] <Tasia> There's no guarantee how he'll react anyway... [14:21] * Tasia decides to calmly walk across to the Right door, keeping her eye on the soldier at all times and her hand on her pistol. [14:22] <~SU_Tempest> [Merc] Hey ma'am. Can I help you? [14:22] <Tasia> "I'm not sure, actually, I seem to be lost." (taking hands off of the gun and holding them out to her sides) [14:23] <Tasia> "This place is pretty confusing. Almost like a maze." [14:24] <~SU_Tempest> [Merc] It is, and from what I hear, especially so for some people... You're in Sector 14, in one of the unused areas. Pray tell, what's this on your neck?... *He is pointing at your Amulet.* [14:24] <Tasia> "Oh, this? I found it floating in the air - looks pretty neat, doesn't it? Not really sure what it's for, though." [14:25] <~SU_Tempest> [Merc] *Approaches carefully to give it a better look.* Hmmm. Would you happen to come from another world? [14:25] <Tasia> "I suppose so - I'm not sure what world /this/ is, so I can't be sure on that." [14:26] <~SU_Tempest> [Merc] So those old legends the shrine maidens yak about are true, huh. That's pretty interesting. But... Oh. I'm sorry, I haven't introduced myself, have I? [14:29] <Tasia> "Nnnno. But I'm Tasia, nice to meet you." (holds out hand for a shake) [14:29] <~SU_Tempest> [Merc] The name's Larry Kessler, mercenary for hire. Pleased to meet you. *Strong handshake.* [14:30] <Tasia> "Hey, you seem decent enough." [14:30] <Tasia> "Say, do you know where I could get some of those smokes from?" [14:30] <~SU_Tempest> [Merc] Some bastard fellows once nicknamed me "Flak", because they couldn't find anything else to call me when I told them my name. But I guess I grew attached to the name, so if you'd like you can call me Flak. And you, if you have this Amulet and you are what I think, you must be the "Contestant", right? [14:31] <Tasia> "Yeah, I guess there's no sense in playing dumb now, is there. Heheh." [14:31] <~SU_Tempest> [Merc] Amusingly enough I think nurses sell cigarettes. I could give you one or two of mine if you'd like. [14:31] <Tasia> "Well, if you'd trade for the lot, I've got a box of ammo that I can't use and you could have." [14:31] <~SU_Tempest> [Merc] Depends what it is. I could throw in my lighter if it's good enough. [14:32] <Tasia> "M-60 belts. I'm not sure what an M-60 is, but it seems like a machine gun of some type." [14:32] <~SU_Tempest> [Merc] Hmm. Can you show me? I might know someone who'll buy me that for a fair price... [14:33] * Tasia opens the backpack and pulls out the box [14:33] <Tasia> "I'm sure it'd be a fine weapon, but, I imagine, too heavy to lug around everywhere." [14:33] <~SU_Tempest> [Merc] Ooh. Hollow-points. Sure, I'll rid you of that. You can have all my cigs and the lighter. I've got... about five left. As for the M60, I have a buddy who uses one on the job. Guy's a hunk of muscles though. [14:34] <Tasia> "Sure thing." [14:34] <&Hebizuka> *Trade M60 belt for 5 cigarettes + Bracelet-lighter?* [14:34] <Tasia> Y. [14:35] <&Hebizuka> [Key item] Bracelet lighter, allowing you to light cigarettes, or have a small and reliable source of fire. [14:35] <&Hebizuka> [Meds] Cigarette (required lighter or fire source to use) - Hunger -2d6, FT+1 for 2d6 turns - Weight: 0.1/item (Quantity: 5, total weight 0.5) [14:35] <&Hebizuka> *The lighter isn't actually worn on the wrist, but is ring shaped so that it hangs on the belt.* [14:36] <Tasia> "Thanks!"

[14:37] <&Hebizuka> [Weight] (Pack/Main inv) 13.98/40 [14:37] <Tasia> "Not that I could afford it right now - but if and when I get some iches saved up, I'll definitely consider it! Oh, I've heard that the youkai are pretty paranoid right now too, apparnetly some of them got murdered and they're up in arms. So keep an eye out." [14:38] <Tasia> riches* [14:38] <~SU_Tempest> [Merc] Ah, the whole human-youkai clusterfuck, huh. I don't meddle in it personally, I'll accept jobs from anyone who pays me, but I ain't got no opinion on it. [14:38] * Tasia waves and heads through the Right door. [14:39] <~SU_Tempest> [Merc] And that's a shame. Oh well, stay safe, miss Tasia. [14:39] <Tasia> "I don't know what's going on either, but I'll keep my eyes open too." [14:39] <Tasia> "Stay safe yourself, Flak." [14:40] * Tasia opens the door... [14:40] <&Hebizuka> *An electrical room. You hear the hum of power machinery working behind the walls. There's a power control computer here, which is on but idle. There's an out-of-place object on the desk next to the keyboard as well...* [14:40] * Tasia examines the Object... [14:41] <&Hebizuka> [Weapon] Class 5 Short: Meat fork - Piercing. Weight: 5 [14:41] * Tasia shrugs aqnd leaves it be. [14:41] <Tasia> Let's examine the computer, now. [14:42] <&Hebizuka> *The computer is in screensaver mode. One of those basic space star displays.* [14:42] <Tasia> [Space bar] [14:43] <&Hebizuka> *The computer springs back to life immediately. It doesn't even ask you for a password; you're immediately given access to power control software which seem to regulate how much electricity is supplied in the whole sector.* [14:43] <&Hebizuka> [Computer] POWER CONTROL UNIT - SECTOR 38 [14:43] <Tasia> What sort of information about the sector can I gather from this? [14:44] * Tasia is going to try snooping aorund in the software as best she can [14:45] <&Hebizuka> *That a sector is 100 rooms wide and covers all rooms between 3800 and 3899; including this one, Room 3858. You don't have access to a map or anything of the sort, but you do have indicators about power usage; but most importantly...* [14:45] <&Hebizuka> *...you have the option to choose how much power to supply to individual rooms, or the whole sector if you so desired. Ah, the pitfalls of lax security.* [14:45] <Tasia> Hm! [14:46] <Tasia> I don't know what is in these rooms - might as well set them all to 100% power so I won't have to deal with darkness. [14:47] <&Hebizuka> *The dials allow you to set it to 0, 50, 100, 150, 200 and 300% power.* [14:48] <Tasia> 100% is fine, I don't want to explode anything without having a reason to. [14:48] <&Hebizuka> [Computer] POWER DISTRIBUTION: Whole sector. Set to 100%. [14:48] <Tasia> As amusing as it may be, it could bite me in the ass. [14:48] <&Hebizuka> *Some rooms spring back to 100% in green text, where they were previously set to 0%.* [14:49] <&Hebizuka> *What else do you wish to do?* [14:49] * Tasia looks around for anything else of interest here, either in the computer ort the room in general. [14:49] <&Hebizuka> *There isn't much else.* [14:50] <Tasia> Are the doors lockable from inside? [14:50] <&Hebizuka> *The doors don't appear to have anything that allows you to lock them.* [14:51] <&Hebizuka> *The computer is no help in that regard either, there is no lock function.* [14:51] * Tasia shrugs, then sits down leaning against the wall humming wich machinery. She lights a cigarette, coughing slightly as she's used to electric ones and hasn't actually had a real one before. [14:52] <Tasia> This could be a good save point to pick up later, I guess. [14:53] <&Hebizuka> *Despite your coughing, it seems to help you endure the passing time better. The nicotine isn't helping you feeling sharper, but you relax more easily.* [14:54] <&Hebizuka> Checkout [14:54] <&Hebizuka> 15 rooms, 0 kills, 0 SEs, 1 Mission, 1 Amulet, 906 P$, 0 Runs [14:55] <&Hebizuka> Score: 59 points [14:55] <&Hebizuka> Position: 9th [14:55] <&Hebizuka> *No combat occurred today.* [14:55] <&Hebizuka> *No progress on the achievement stats outside of missions and amulets.*
