From Mazeworld

[10:34] <&Hebizuka> *Welcome back to the Mazes, Jonah. You have visited 104 rooms, the next special room is next door. You are healthy, as far as you know. !mrooms1 to continue.* [10:34] <Jonah> !mrooms1 [10:34] <&Hebizuka> [ Jonah ] Unique door: 5018 - Roomstyle: 12 - Enemy strength: 4 /6 [10:35] <Jonah> Well. A - a door's a door, I guess. [10:35] <Jonah> What's it going to be this time? Another law breaking ass? More damned snakes? [10:36] <&Hebizuka> *A circular room with no doors; you meet the teleporting keypad again.* [10:37] <&Hebizuka> *The keypad asks you for a room number.* [10:38] <Jonah> That's - Room - no, no, what was it, what was it. [10:38] <Jonah> 4545? 5454? [10:39] <Jonah> That's - calm down, Jonah, you wrote this down. [10:39] * Jonah takes the moment for a quick breather, and pulls out her crumpled sheets of paper. [10:40] <Jonah> Porn, more porn, dragon picture - right, I still need to find that Tammy maid one day. [10:40] <Jonah> Okay. 54, 54. [10:41] <Jonah> Let's - I need some guidance in my life. And maybe that prison guy is there. [10:41] <Jonah> Okay, Room 5454. [10:41] <Jonah> I have some donations to make. [10:41] <&Hebizuka> *The teleporter successfully teleports you to 5454...* [10:43] <&Hebizuka> *The room became a regular, featureless room. There isn't even any remaining traces of a shrine; it has been probably forcibly removed. All you see here is a shiny on the floor.* [10:44] <Jonah> That's. What - no no no no no [10:44] <Jonah> That doesn't even make any /sense/ it's only been a day at most. [10:45] <Jonah> This - it's a trick, there's a trap here, don't move Jonah, check your surroundings, there's gonna be another pressure plate or /something./ [10:46] <&Hebizuka> *There are no traps here.* [10:46] <Jonah> That's... this is - FUCKING MAZEWORLD! [10:47] * Jonah grips her shotgun like it's a comfort blanket, just barely resisting the urge to pump it out of frustration. She steps over to the shiny, keeping her trigger finger on the trigger guard to prevent any accidental firings. [10:48] <Jonah> Just like Carolyn - wait, no, she didn't teach me that bit of gun safety... [10:50] <&Hebizuka> [Valuable] Yellow-green gem - Unidentified - Weight: 0.1 [10:51] <Jonah> That's - this makes no sense, there should be a sign of /something.../ [10:51] * Jonah absentmindedly scoops up the gem, before looking at the doors in a daze. [10:51] <&Hebizuka> *There are three. Next special room at the 111th.* [10:52] <Jonah> If - maybe I got the room wrong. Yeah - that... that makes sense. [10:52] <Jonah> More sense than this. [10:52] <Jonah> !mrooms3 [10:52] <&Hebizuka> [ Jonah ] Left door: 4937 - Front door: 4142 - Right door: 290 - Roomstyle: 455 - Enemy strength: 4 /6 [10:52] <Jonah> Okay, so - I'll just try the other one again. 4545. When I find a teleporter pad. [10:52] * Jonah heads through the front door. [10:52] <&Hebizuka> [Weight] (Pack/main inv) 59.77/60 [10:54] <&Hebizuka> *A messy, featureless room with traces of fighting. Judging by the blood spatters that have long dried on the walls and the floor, that is. You spot an accessory on the floor.* [10:55] <Jonah> One of these days, I'll get used to checking traps SO MUCH it'll be like breathing. Instinctive. [10:55] <Jonah> Subconcious. [10:56] <&Hebizuka> *What will you do here?* [10:56] <Jonah> Okay, so - trap checking first. [10:58] <&Hebizuka> *None that you can see here. It seems safe.* [10:58] <&Hebizuka> *Which means it most likely is.* [10:59] <Jonah> Then - accessory, I guess. [11:00] <Jonah> God - this makes no sense, they leave blood to dry and flake for weeks because this is absolutely weeks old blood but the /shrine/ is - no, no. I got the room number wrong. [11:00] <Jonah> Don't second guess yourself. [11:00] <&Hebizuka> [Weapon accessory] Reflex sight: EKP-8-02 Kobra [11:01] <Jonah> That's - nothing I can use. [11:02] <Jonah> Oh. [11:02] <Jonah> But - I can use Malika. [11:02] <Jonah> That's... maybe just a little bit. [11:02] <Jonah> I have the ammo for it. [11:02] <Jonah> ...Okay, then. Come on out, Malika. I choose you. [11:03] <&Hebizuka> *But nothing happens, because guns are not pokemon, despite the obvious resemblance.* [11:03] * Jonah equips Malika, and puts away her old Shotty. [11:03] <Jonah> Did I load you up, Malika? How many shots do you have? [11:05] <&Hebizuka> *The M16A1, so called Malika's magazine is empty, and so is the chamber. There's no ammunition.* [11:05] <&Hebizuka> *You have swapped the 870 MM with "Malika" successfully.* [11:06] <Jonah> Okay, guess not. Let's load you up first. And an extra bullet in the chamber. [11:06] <&Hebizuka> *The 870MM is now in your backpack, and the M16A1 in your main equipment.* [11:07] <&Hebizuka> [Reload] M16A1 "Malika": +21 FMJ [20+1/20, 21x FMJ] [11:08] <&Hebizuka> *5.56x45mm NATO FMJ remaining: 135 in backpack* [11:08] <&Hebizuka> *"Malika" is now fully loaded.* [11:10] <Jonah> Cha-chik. [11:10] <Jonah> I think is how that sound goes. [11:10] <Jonah> Carolyn - please guide me. [11:10] <Jonah> !mrooms3 [11:10] <&Hebizuka> [ Jonah ] Left door: 6941 - Front door: 2349 - Right door: 4779 - Roomstyle: 132 - Enemy strength: 4 /6 [11:10] <Jonah> Front door it is. [11:16] <&Hebizuka> *A messy washitsu; one of those traditional Japanese-styled rooms youkai like to live into, but all the furniture here has been thoroughly vandalized. There is a hakutaku here, watching the television set - one of the only things that was not damaged, so it seems. They appear unarmed.* [11:16] <Jonah> *Let's not make an ass of ourselves - male or female?* [11:17] <Jonah> *I mean, assuming I can't check the genetalia.* [11:17] <&Hebizuka> *You can only guess roughly what the gender is. The hakutaku appear masculine; could be male or x-male.* [11:18] <Jonah> Uhm - hello, sir. You should be more aware of your surroundings, you know. [11:18] <~SU_Tempest> [Hakutaku] Why? [11:18] <Jonah> Are you - okay? It looks like a tornado went through here. [11:19] <Jonah> Well - because you didn't react to me at all. I thought you were too engrossed in the TV to notice. [11:19] <~SU_Tempest> [Hakutaku] Shit, like I don't know. Bunch of Soldiers who tormented me yesterday. I don't even have the heart to repair everything. [11:19] <Jonah> That's... would you like my help, then? [11:19] <Jonah> Extra pair of hands makes things a bit easier. [11:20] <~SU_Tempest> [Hakutaku] Nah. Sorry. You sound more decent than the lot, but that doesn't mean I trust humans. [11:20] <~SU_Tempest> [Hakutaku] You might wanna be careful with your clothes. For a sec I thought you were a soldier until I saw your shirt and tie. [11:21] <Jonah> Oh - well, alright. And I guess you don't want a weapon to defend yourself or anything? [11:21] <~SU_Tempest> [Hakutaku] Psh. I'm not an activist. [11:21] <Jonah> I'm - my teachers weren't the best at history, so I still get the nuances of the conflict muddled up. [11:21] <~SU_Tempest> [Hakutaku] Not -ALL- of us like to blast each other up, yknow? [11:22] * Jonah hugs her Malika a bit closer to her chest, and smiles with quiet relief. [11:23] <Jonah> I know that now. And - I know you don't trust me, but I hear that you guys are pretty good at figuring out what's what about mushrooms. [11:23] <Jonah> I dont suppose I could pay you for your services? [11:23] <~SU_Tempest> [Hakutaku] *sigh* Just show them to me. If that can make you disappear i'll do it for free. [11:25] <Jonah> Oh - thank you, so much! I'm sorry to be a bother... [11:25] * Jonah keeps Malika on her as she shows off all the mushrooms she's collected over her travels: [11:25] <&Hebizuka> *Seeing 2 unidentified mushrooms in your inventory. Confirm you have this much?* [11:26] <Jonah> *Uh what. I grabbed all the mushrooms from the mushroom patch last session* [11:33] <&Hebizuka> *Seeing 7 unidentified mushrooms.* [11:33] <~SU_Tempest> [Hakutaku] I'll be taking one or two of them, in exchange of your money. And I choose which ones. [11:33] <~SU_Tempest> [Hakutaku] Anyhow, let's see... [11:34] <&Hebizuka> *The hakutaku is identifying and tagging your mushrooms...* [11:35] <&Hebizuka> =Identified items= [11:35] <&Hebizuka> [Mushroom] (Normal) Yellow, Odorless - Paxillus involutus, Poison pax - 1d2, Poisonous. Nausea, Laxative (1d6+2 turns for both) [11:35] <&Hebizuka> [Mushroom] (Normal) Red, Fruity smell - Russula fragilis, Fragile Brittlegill - 1d3, 25% poisoning. [11:35] <&Hebizuka> [Mushroom] (Normal) Yellow, Odorless - Hygrophoropsis aurantiaca, False chanterelle - 1d2 [11:35] <&Hebizuka> [Mushroom] (Normal) Brown, Odorless - Lentinula edodes, Shiitake - 2d4+3 [11:35] <&Hebizuka> [Mushroom] (Magic) Purple, Odorless - Halucinatio, Mushroom of hallucination - 1d7+2, Hallucinations (10 turns) [11:35] <&Hebizuka> [Mushroom] (Normal) Brown, Pleasant smell - Macrolepiota procera, Tall lepiota - 1d5+3 [11:35] <&Hebizuka> [Mushroom] (Normal) Black, Odorless - Coprinopsis atramentaria, Oni's Bane - 1d5, Anti-oni syndrome (2d5 turns) [11:35] <~SU_Tempest> [Hakutaku] Here. And I'll be taking the shiitake and the tall lepiota. They'll do -just- nicely with my next meal. [11:36] <&Hebizuka> *If you agree, say so and take the remaining mushrooms, otherwise you could extend an offer.* [11:37] <Jonah> Uhm - what's Anti-Oni Syndrome? [11:38] <Jonah> You can have those, by the by, I'm not a fan of mushrooms. [11:38] <Jonah> I mean - I agree, that is. [11:38] <~SU_Tempest> [Hakutaku] Heh. [11:39] <~SU_Tempest> [Hakutaku] The anti-oni syndrome? It's pretty nasty for heavy drinkers... and oni, by proxy. [11:39] <Jonah> So, is it like - I eat it and heavy drinkers stay away from my scent of anti-booze? [11:40] <Jonah> Or do I give it to a heavy drinker and they suddenly get super sober. [11:40] <~SU_Tempest> [Hakutaku] Anyone affected by the syndrome should avoid drinking alcohol, becausei if they try to, they'll get severe nausea and troubled vision.... and they won't even get to feel drunk. [11:40] <~SU_Tempest> [Hakutaku] Like I said, it's pretty horrible. [11:42] <Jonah> That's... interesting. [11:43] <Jonah> So, if I chopped it up into pieces and then added it to an alcoholic drink, that'd be pretty bad. [11:43] <~SU_Tempest> [Hakutaku] He'll feel ultra sick. [11:43] <Jonah> Alright. I think I can find a use for that. [11:43] <~SU_Tempest> [Hakutaku] As you wish, just don't do it to an oni... [11:44] <Jonah> Thank you very much, sir! Enjoy those mushrooms - er, why not? [11:44] <Jonah> They'd get pissed and kill me? [11:44] <~SU_Tempest> [Hakutaku] You don't want to piss off something that has muscles as thick as your head. *Chuckle* [11:45] <Jonah> Alright, then - thank you very much, sir. [11:46] <Jonah> I hope those soldiers will leave you alone for a while. [11:46] <Jonah> !mrooms3 [11:46] <&Hebizuka> [ Jonah ] Left door: 4688 - Front door: 5648 - Right door: 1477 - Roomstyle: 514 - Enemy strength: 5 /6 [11:47] <&Hebizuka> [Weight] (Pack/main inv) 59.86/60 [11:47] <Jonah> Through the front door, then. [11:48] <&Hebizuka> *A regular, featureless room. There is load-bearing gear on the other side of the room, but first you'll have to deal with the giant spider that lurks here.* [11:49] <Jonah> Ahahahahahahhahaaha no. [11:49] <Jonah> I am /fleeing./ [11:50] <&Hebizuka> *Attempt fleeing? Roll a 2d6 if yes.* [11:50] <Jonah> @roll 1#2d6 [11:50] <MazeBot> Jonah: 10 [11:50] <&Hebizuka> *You slip past the giant spider without being noticed, you can now pick one door to flee through.* [11:51] <Jonah> !mrooms3 [11:51] <&Hebizuka> [ Jonah ] Left door: 4356 - Front door: 6868 - Right door: 432 - Roomstyle: 460 - Enemy strength: 4 /6 [11:51] <Jonah> Front door. [11:55] <&Hebizuka> *A mess hall. There is a tengu carrying a sniper rifle and load-bearing gear - presumably an activist - and eating some sort of quick lunch, at one of the tables. You notice a bottle on another table closer from you.* [11:58] <Jonah> *Oh god I hope he doesn't confuse me for a Soldier.* [11:58] <Jonah> Uhm - hi there. Is this bottle here yours? [11:59] <~SU_Tempest> *The tengu turns her head and observes you silently for several heavy seconds before determining you are not a threat.* [11:59] <~SU_Tempest> [Tengu] Nah, it's not mine. [11:59] <Jonah> Then do you mind if I take it? [11:59] * Jonah takes a quick glance at the bottle. What /is/ it anyways? [12:00] <&Hebizuka> [Food] Beverage - Bottle of mineral water. 1d3 [12:00] <Jonah> *If anyone poisons WATER they're a sick fuck. I should be safe.* [12:01] <Jonah> *Wait wait wait is it unopened.* [12:01] <&Hebizuka> *Yes, it's unopened and full.* [12:01] <Jonah> *Okay, just gotta confirm that the Tengu doesn't want it, and then I'll be able to get a nice sip of water.* [12:02] <Jonah> Er - miss? /Do/ you mind? I mean, if you want something to wash down your lunch I totally get it. [12:05] <~SU_Tempest> [Tengu] Like I said, ain't mine. Take it if you want. [12:05] * Jonah thanks her and gulps it all down. [12:06] <Jonah> Hmm... I could use an empty bottle. Maybe I can make room for it... [12:06] <&Hebizuka> *You didn't need it but it strangely tasted good. Perhaps you were a bit thirsty.* [12:08] <Jonah> Gotta stay hydrated. So - how much space does this bottle take... [12:09] <&Hebizuka> *Meaningless items: 8/10* [12:09] <Jonah> Not much space at all, I see. [12:10] <Jonah> Thanks again, Miss. Hope your activism goes well. [12:10] <Jonah> !mrooms3 [12:10] <&Hebizuka> [ Jonah ] Left door: 5061 - Front door: 5599 - Right door: 4428 - Roomstyle: 398 - Enemy strength: 4 /6 [12:10] <Jonah> Front door it is. [12:10] <~SU_Tempest> *She shrugs at that last remark.* [12:11] <&Hebizuka> *A grassy, but otherwise featureless room. You see the holy grail of hunting creatures in front of you... a white-tailed deer! There's also only one room ahead (!mrooms1), and you spot a package in the corner; but you will have to deal with the cervid first.* [12:12] <Jonah> ...Well, I'm a bit full /already./ [12:12] <Jonah> You get to... hmm. [12:13] <Jonah> Well, do you have antlers? My eyes aren't what they're used to be. [12:13] <&Hebizuka> *It does not have antlers, meaning this deer is female.* [12:14] <Jonah> You get to live, little miss. Hope you find an outdoor area soon. [12:15] <Jonah> *Can I just approach the package, since I'm leaving the deer alone?* [12:15] <&Hebizuka> *The deer remains neutral to you, so you can do so, yes.* [12:15] <&Hebizuka> [Bionics] Body implant - "Hydra Skin" body resiliency enhancer [12:16] <Jonah> Ugh. But Hydras are all... slimy. [12:16] <Jonah> Oh well. [12:17] <Jonah> !mrooms1 [12:17] <&Hebizuka> [ Jonah ] Unique door: 2681 - Roomstyle: 367 - Enemy strength: 6 /6 [12:17] <Jonah> Hang in there. [12:17] * Jonah heads through the door. [12:17] <Jonah> ...Carolyn would have wanted to eat the poor thing, wouldn't she. [12:17] <&Hebizuka> *You make it inside an engineering workshop, where an engineer is, expectedly, seen at work.* [12:18] <Jonah> Oh - hello, sir! [12:18] <Jonah> Or - ma'am. [12:19] <Jonah> Do you offer any... services, I guess? I've never been in one of these before. [12:19] <~SU_Tempest> [Engie] Yeah, I'll take "ma'am", I know the clothes make me look more like a man but I'm still female, haha. Welcome to my Workshop. [12:20] <~SU_Tempest> [Engie] Well, yes, of course I do, the 'shop' in 'Workshop' is still valid. I offer crafting and gunsmithing services. The former are everything toolkits, blueprints, ingredients, and the latter is gun repairs and customization. And I sell gun cleaning kits, too. [12:20] <Jonah> ...You have to clean guns? [12:20] <~SU_Tempest> [Engie] Well yea, once in a while. The better made ones need less cleaning than others, but you still do unless you like to do malfunction drills. Haha~ [12:21] <Jonah> Uhm - how much for a, a... gun checkup, then? [12:21] <Jonah> Oh. OH! [12:21] <Jonah> Uhm, if you do guncrafting stuff, can you do engravings? [12:21] <~SU_Tempest> [Engie] Sure, I can do that! [12:21] <~SU_Tempest> [Engie] Easy stuff. [12:23] * Jonah quickly hands her Malika, all but shoving it into her hands. [12:23] <Jonah> Please name this 'Malika' for me. [12:24] <~SU_Tempest> [Engie] Hoh, that's a classic one. "Malika?" This the name you gave 'er? That's actually a pretty little name, I like that. I'll etch this nicely on the receiver, you'll love this. [12:24] <Jonah> Oh, uhm. It's - it's not my name. [12:24] <Jonah> My girlfriend named her, before she... well. [12:25] <Jonah> ...Sorry for being a downer. [12:25] <~SU_Tempest> [Engie] Aw man, sorry for your loss. I'll make it a beautiful one then. [12:26] <Jonah> That's... thank you. [12:26] <~SU_Tempest> [Engie] So, direct engraving, right? Etched right on the gun? [12:27] <Jonah> Yes. That's what Carolyn wanted. [12:28] <~SU_Tempest> [Engie] All right. While I'm at it, do you want me to do more work on the rifle? Or did you need something else? [12:29] <Jonah> Uhm - well, could you tell me how banged up she is? I'm not really sure what else you could do for her. [12:30] <~SU_Tempest> [Engie] Lessee.. .Nah, she's in good condition. A bit roughed up sure but in good condition. I'd say about 74%. As for cleanliness... [12:31] <~SU_Tempest> *The engineer unloads Malika, removes pins on the rifle, separating it in two parts, then looks up the insides...* [12:31] <~SU_Tempest> [Engie] Ehh, I've seen worse. It's about 76% clean. Could still run a fair while. I could give it a quick cleanup and maybe repair the worn out parts but it shouldn't be necessary, unless you absolutely want it to be brand spankin' new. [12:32] <Jonah> Well - let's take a look at my Remington, first. [12:33] <Jonah> I'm not sure I have enough money for both, so I'd like to know which one needs it more. [12:33] <~SU_Tempest> [Engie] Show me that, yeah? [12:33] * Jonah pulls it out of her backpack, sretching her shoulders now that the huge weight is lifted from them. [12:33] <Jonah> Here you go. And, uhm. If you have any good names in mind for him, do let me know. [12:34] <~SU_Tempest> [Engie] Man, what are you talking about? That 870 looks like it just came out of factory! [12:34] <~SU_Tempest> [Engie] Condition is near-100% to me. [12:34] <~SU_Tempest> [Engie] Same goes to cleanliness - what, just how many times did you shoot that thing? I'm willing to bet it's anywhere between zero and twenty-five times. [12:35] <~SU_Tempest> [Engie] I dig the choke, by the way. Really nice for buckshot. [12:35] <Jonah> It's - maybe 15? [12:35] <Jonah> I don't have to shoot a lot. Just once or twice and it's usually enough. [12:35] <Jonah> Alright - let's clean up Malika, then. How much will it be? [12:36] <~SU_Tempest> [Engie] Just a cleanup, or repairs too? [12:37] <Jonah> ...Let's make her brand spanking. Repairs and cleanup will be...? [12:37] <~SU_Tempest> [Engie] Let me make a quick tally... [12:39] <~SU_Tempest> [Engie] Let's make this 256 P$ for the repairs, and 237 P$ for a full cleaning. Add 25 for the engraving job, and the total comes down to 518 P$. That's fine? [12:43] <Jonah> Pricy, but... it's important to maintain your weapons. [12:43] * Jonah pulls out 518, on the spot. [12:54] <~SU_Tempest> [Engie] Yesh, it is. Thank you, I'll get to work on your rifle now. [12:55] <&Hebizuka> *Money carried remaining: 244 P$* [12:56] <&Hebizuka> *The engineer takes Malika away (without magazine and with empty chamber; always unload weapons before working on them!), and begins parts replacement, as well as cleaning, which you cannot watch very clearly but you can guess from the noise she is making.* [12:57] <&Hebizuka> *You then see the engie take engraving tools and start etching the requested name on the receiver...* [12:59] <&Hebizuka> *After a short while, you're returned your rifle, now in perfect condition and with a classy "Malika," written in cursive and literally underlined with a rose, drawn right underneath the hand-drawn letters.* [13:00] <Jonah> That's... this is beautiful. [13:00] <~SU_Tempest> [Engie] Here you go. I thought you'd like the extra touch since she's, well. It's in her memory, it doesn't beat a real rose but it's one in solid steel. Not gonna wither away, this one. [13:00] <Jonah> Thank you. /Thank you,/ Miss... I'm sorry, I never got your name. [13:01] <~SU_Tempest> [Engie] My name? Heh. Engie Lauren Elliot, at your service. Did you need anything else? [13:02] * Jonah hands her another 20 P$ as a tip. [13:02] <~SU_Tempest> [Engie] Oh, nonono. Keep that. [13:02] <Jonah> Nothing - nothing at all. Please, take this. It's - I know who I'm going to go to if I need more gunwork. [13:02] <Jonah> Are you sure? You deserve it. [13:04] <~SU_Tempest> [Engie] I can't accept tips, haha. [13:05] <Jonah> You can't? Heh, that's a shame. [13:06] <Jonah> Well, like I said - I'll try to go to your workshops first if I need anything else done. Thank you, so so much - you've no idea how much this means to me. [13:07] <Jonah> That's - ah, do you have a phone? Maybe we can exchange numbers - if you ever need help, you could ring me up? [13:07] <~SU_Tempest> [Engie] Haha, I do what I can the best I can. And,thanks but no thanks. I sadly don't have a phone on me [13:08] <Jonah> Dang and double dang - well. In that case: May the god bless you and your line. You'll be in my prayers. [13:08] <Jonah> !mrooms3 [13:08] <&Hebizuka> [ Jonah ] Left door: 140 - Front door: 2778 - Right door: 5056 - Roomstyle: 465 - Enemy strength: 5 /6 [13:09] * Jonah make sure the Remington is back in her backpack, and Malika is in her arms, before she heads out through the front door. [13:09] <~SU_Tempest> [Engie] Sure thing, lady. Stay safe. [13:10] <&Hebizuka> *Next special room at the 120th.* [13:10] <&Hebizuka> *As you walk through the doorway, you suddenly fall through a trapdoor.* [13:10] <&Hebizuka> *You land - without damage - inside a pitch black room, where you can't see a thing...* [13:12] * Jonah stays very, /very/ still, listening for any sign of other organisms - shuffling of feet, breathing, claws on tile... [13:12] <&Hebizuka> *There isn't a noise. The silence is only broken by your own breathing.* [13:12] <Jonah> God if they're undead I'm gonna be so pissed. [13:13] * Jonah immediately drops to the floor as silently as she can. [13:13] <&Hebizuka> *Not a noise or any signs of shuffling.* [13:14] * Jonah grumbles some more, standing back up and pulling out her P90 to turn on the light. [13:14] <&Hebizuka> *You see... nothing but a box of ammo on the floor.* [13:15] <Jonah> Let's look for traps first - slow sweeps with the torth, make sure you don't miss a thing in the dark... [13:17] <&Hebizuka> *No traps.* [13:17] <Jonah> Okay, then - the ammo? [13:17] <&Hebizuka> [Ammunition] Crossbow bolts, 4 rounds - weight 0.4 [13:17] <&Hebizuka> *It's a box that says it contains 100 bolts... But there's only 4 in there. Bummer.* [13:18] <Jonah> !mrooms3 [13:18] <&Hebizuka> [ Jonah ] Left door: 5401 - Front door: 7394 - Right door: 5472 - Roomstyle: 445 - Enemy strength: 1 /6 [13:18] <Jonah> Let's head out the front door, then. [13:20] <Jonah> And I gotta remember to turn off my light! [13:20] <&Hebizuka> (I'll let you turn it off before passing the room. :P) [13:21] <&Hebizuka> *A meeting office, with a long table surrounded with office chairs. There is a container on the floor...* [13:22] <Jonah> Meeting offices are always full of traps. Which one am I dealing today? [13:23] <&Hebizuka> *There is no trap in the room proper.* [13:24] <Jonah> The trap of no trap, I see. [13:24] <Jonah> I bet there's a trap in the container, though. [13:24] * Jonah prods at it with her tantou, shielding her face with her other arm. [13:25] <&Hebizuka> *Container type: Wood. Lock: Mechanical: Trapped: No.* [13:25] * Jonah fiddles with it some more. Absolutely locked? [13:26] <Jonah> I mean, it's wood, so worse comes to worst I could just break it open... [13:26] <&Hebizuka> *Locked it is. The lock has a serial number: 4582. And you don't appear to see or have a matching key.* [13:28] <Jonah> How heavy is this container? [13:28] * Jonah tries to carry it, shake it around, all sorts of stuff to see what could be inside. [13:28] <&Hebizuka> *It rattles, but it's actually pretty heavy, you have trouble lifting it off the floor for more than a few seconds.* [13:30] <&Hebizuka> *In short you can't carry it around.* [13:30] <Jonah> Alright - let's just... stomp the lock off, I guess. [13:31] <Jonah> If the thing inside is explosive, I don't want to try stomping the actual wood. Shooting is right out, and the tantou and Kabar... well, they /could/ be sharp enough to wedge through the wood, if it's thin enough. [13:31] <Jonah> *How thick is the wood? Can I get a guesstimate?* [13:32] <&Hebizuka> *It's heavy, so it must be pretty thick. It looks like it could take quite the beating.* [13:33] <Jonah> Lock it is. [13:34] <Jonah> *Stomp, Lock, 1 stomp* [13:34] <Jonah> *If I can.* [13:34] <&Hebizuka> *You're now engaging the container in a fight!* [13:34] <&Hebizuka> *You may roll now.* [13:34] <Jonah> *Again.* [13:34] <Jonah> @roll 1#2d6 [13:34] <MazeBot> Jonah: 9 [13:35] <&Hebizuka> *You land a solid kick on the container's lid, but it seems to have barely done any damage.* [13:35] <&Hebizuka> *Turn 2.* [13:41] <Jonah> Ugh... god, I don't want to do this. [13:41] * Jonah pulls out Malika, setting up the bipod and aiming down the sights. [13:41] <Jonah> This is such a bad idea, it's gonna pierce through the wood and hit a grenade or something. [13:42] <Jonah> *Malika, Lock, semi-auto 1 shot* [13:43] <&Hebizuka> *Roll now.* [13:43] <Jonah> @roll 1#2d6 [13:43] <MazeBot> Jonah: 7 [13:44] <&Hebizuka> *Effects: FT-1, Recoil -2* [13:44] <&Hebizuka> *That's a solid hit on the lock.* [13:45] <&Hebizuka> *You pierced a tiny hole in the lock, so it had to have caused SOME damage at least...* [13:45] <&Hebizuka> *Turn 3. What is your next move?* [13:45] <Jonah> ...Another, I guess. [13:45] <Jonah> I really hope nobody walks in on me. [13:46] <Jonah> *Stomp, Lock, Semi-auto 3 shots.* [13:46] <Jonah> Here's hoping, Malika. Make your mother proud. [13:57] <&Hebizuka> *You may roll now.* [13:58] <Jonah> @roll 3#2d6 [13:58] <MazeBot> Jonah: 10;6;3 [13:59] <&Hebizuka> *All three hits, but only the first round seemed to cause any damage. It did seem to cause a lot more than the previous shot, though.* [13:59] <&Hebizuka> *Turn 4. What is your next move?* [14:01] <Jonah> *Malika, Lock, Semi-auto 3 shots.* [14:01] <Jonah> And again. [14:01] <&Hebizuka> *Roll now.* [14:04] <Jonah> @roll 3#2d6 [14:04] <MazeBot> Jonah: 8;6;5 [14:04] <&Hebizuka> *Again, one hit out of the three seemed to cause damage, and again the one shot that hits, causes significant damage. You've almost unhinged the lock by now.* [14:05] <&Hebizuka> *Turn 5. What next?* [14:06] <Jonah> Let's save some ammo... [14:06] <Jonah> *Malika, Lock, Semi-auto 2 shots.* [14:07] <&Hebizuka> *Roll now.* [14:07] <Jonah> @roll 2#2d6 [14:07] <MazeBot> Jonah: 6;11 [14:08] <&Hebizuka> *One hit out of two causes damage, again. It's nearly undone by now, just one more nudge should do it...* [14:09] <&Hebizuka> *Turn 6. What next?* [14:12] <Jonah> *Malika, Lock, Semi-auto 1 shot.* [14:12] <Jonah> This really better be worth it, 'cause god damn. [14:14] <&Hebizuka> *Roll now!* [14:15] <Jonah> @roll 1#2d6 [14:15] <MazeBot> Jonah: 6 [14:15] <&Hebizuka> *Hit, but no damage.* [14:16] <Jonah> Well... I needed to get rid of ammo anyways. [14:16] <Jonah> Free up some space. [14:17] <&Hebizuka> *Turn 7. What next?* [14:17] <Jonah> *Malika, Lock, Semi-auto 1 shot.* [14:18] <&Hebizuka> *Roll now.* [14:21] <Jonah> @roll 1#2d6 [14:21] <MazeBot> Jonah: 3 [14:22] <&Hebizuka> *Another hit that leads to nothing.* [14:23] <&Hebizuka> *Turn 8. What next?* [14:25] <Jonah> *Malika, Lock, Semi-auto 1 shot.* [14:26] <&Hebizuka> *Roll now.* [14:27] <Jonah> @roll 1#2d6 [14:27] <MazeBot> Jonah: 5 [14:28] <&Hebizuka> *Another failure to damage the lock. You're re-painting the lock with lead and copper residue at this rate.* [14:29] <&Hebizuka> *And we are already at Turn 9. What's your next move?* [14:30] <Jonah> *Malika, Lock, Semi-auto 1 shot.* [14:31] <&Hebizuka> *Roll now.* [14:31] <Jonah> @roll 1#2d6 [14:31] <MazeBot> Jonah: 8 [14:32] <&Hebizuka> *The lock finally breaks in pieces.* [14:33] <&Hebizuka> *After NINE TURNS of EPIC FIGHTING against a BOX, its contents are yours to check. Fortunately you did not damage anything inside the container.* [14:34] <Jonah> /There/ we go! [14:34] <Jonah> Okay, let's fill up Malika again, I don't have too many bullets left. [14:35] <&Hebizuka> [Reload] M16A1 "Malika": +13 FMJ [20+1/20, 21x FMJ] [14:35] <&Hebizuka> *5.56x45mm NATO FMJ remaining: 122* [14:35] <Jonah> And one in the chamber - good. Let's see my spoils~ [14:36] <&Hebizuka> =Contents= [14:36] <&Hebizuka> [Weapon] Class 1 - Colt M16A4 assault rifle | 5.56x45mm NATO - Semi/Burst3 | No accessory | STANAG 30-round mag, +1 | Weight: 22 - [29+1/30, 30x FMJ] - Cond: Perfect / Clns: Perfect [14:36] <&Hebizuka> [Weapon accessory] Magazine: STANAG 30-round magazine.

[14:41] <&Hebizuka> *What will you do with your newfound loot?* [14:41] <Jonah> ...Screw it. [14:41] * Jonah places a bullet inside the new Colt's chamber from her own stash. [14:42] <Jonah> There. Done. Whoever gets you is gonna be one happy dude. [14:42] <Jonah> !mrooms3 [14:42] <&Hebizuka> [ Jonah ] Left door: 5834 - Front door: 5214 - Right door: 5276 - Roomstyle: 307 - Enemy strength: 2 /6 [14:42] <Jonah> Fucking waste of time I swear. [14:44] <&Hebizuka> *Now you have 121 rounds left, instead of 122.* [15:21] * Jonah sighs, turning back around to scoop up the ammunition magazines.\ [15:22] <Jonah> There's really no point in keeping these pockets empty for a just in case. Worse comes to worst I can throw them out again. [15:22] <Jonah> Okay - NOW front door. [15:22] <&Hebizuka> *You grabbed all three STANAG magazines - including the one in the M16A4, and placed them in your tacvest.* [15:23] <&Hebizuka> [Weight] (Tacvest/Mag pouches): 5/6 pouches filled [15:24] <&Hebizuka> *A radio room. You can use the @radio if you wish to listen to something. You also spot a blueprint!* [16:06] <Jonah> @radio [16:06] <MazeBot> [Pirate radio] A strange pirate radio which seems to play the same song over and over. The Odd Wave with DJ Odd One - http://bit.ly/1idDjBb [16:06] <Jonah> As for the blueprint... what am I looking at here? [16:07] <&Hebizuka> [Crafting] (Blueprint) "Level 3, HMXB, 2x HMX charge + 1x E. circuit + 1x German keyboard + 1x LED display + 2x copper wire" [16:08] <Jonah> I long for the day I have more room. I truly do. [16:09] <Jonah> But for now... [16:09] <Jonah> ...Nope, I got nothing. [16:09] <Jonah> !mrooms3 [16:09] <&Hebizuka> [ Jonah ] Left door: 3565 - Front door: 3780 - Right door: 7230 - Roomstyle: 251 - Enemy strength: 1 /6 [16:11] <Jonah> Through the front, I guess. [16:12] <&Hebizuka> *A classroom. No students or teacher around though! You see something else hover around in the room... You thought it was a wandering shadow at first, but as it turns out, you have met a ghost.* [16:13] <~SU_Tempest> [???] Ah, for fuck's sake, is that you? Is that really you Jonah? [16:13] <Jonah> ...What. [16:14] <Jonah> That's - no., no way. [16:14] <~SU_Tempest> [???] It's me! Carolyn! Well, what's left of me, that is... I'm a ghost, ain't I? I'm stuck here. The Gods don't want to let me go through in heaven! [16:15] <Jonah> It's - where 'are you'? Am - Am I /facing/ towards you, or, or - oh gods, Carolyn. /Carolyn./ [16:16] <&Hebizuka> *The ghost materializes SOMEWHAT into Carolyn's rough shape, with the only definite traits being that of her face. Which is still fairly blurry.* [16:16] <&Hebizuka> *She still looks ethereal and ectoplasmic.* [16:16] * Jonah sets Malika onto one of the many desks, waving her arms into - oh. [16:16] <~SU_Tempest> [Ghost] I can't believe they decided to throw me into your way. Or did you wander here at random? [16:16] <Jonah> You're... looking pretty good for a ghost. [16:16] <Jonah> Random. Absolutely random. [16:17] <Jonah> The gods aren't so cruel as to make us fight. [16:17] <~SU_Tempest> [Ghost] Welcome to MazeWorld, missus. You haven't changed a lot, yknow? [16:17] <~SU_Tempest> [Ghost] I sure did. Oh, you kept my rifle? How adorable. [16:17] <Jonah> Just... it's. [16:17] <~SU_Tempest> [Ghost] We aren't gonna fight, silly. [16:18] <&Hebizuka> *Carolyn's ghost passes through you, leaving you with a chilling effect, then returns in front of your eyes.* [16:18] * Jonah grips her own arms, taking huge, deep breaths to stop from hyperventilating. [16:18] <~SU_Tempest> [Ghost] Shit, calm down. [16:18] <~SU_Tempest> [Ghost] I know I'm just a disembodied soul now but, aren't you happy to see me? [16:18] <Jonah> Hssssssssguh. That's...calm down? /Calm down?/ [16:19] <Jonah> You're - Carolyn, if you /are/ Carolyn, and not some figment of my imagination! [16:19] <~SU_Tempest> [Ghost] Look, ghosts are real. I'm ONE, now! [16:20] <~SU_Tempest> [Ghost] You aren't hallucinating. I'm really here... Well. Here-ish. [16:20] <Jonah> That's - okay, sure, but even if I'm not - so what? [16:21] <Jonah> You're still trapped on this goddamn mortal coil. Why... why didn't They let you in? [16:21] <Jonah> It's not fair - you /deserved/ a rest, no matter how much I begged you to stay. [16:21] <~SU_Tempest> [Ghost] Well that's the problem. I was denied entry to Heaven, and i'm sure as hell not going to knock at Hell's door. Besides the Demon Princes would never accept me. [16:21] <Jonah> Oh - oh god, did I do this? Did... did my fucking Contestant powers or - /who the fuck would DENY entry to you!?/ [16:22] <Jonah> That's bullshit!*I* got into Heaven and I'm the Shittiest Paladin in the World! [16:22] <~SU_Tempest> [Ghost] The Gods did. They said I'm still needed here, and they didn't care if I was dead. And I'm too scared to possess something or someone to get back into a body. [16:22] <Jonah> That's... you're still needed... oh no. [16:23] <Jonah> Then that means - I'm keeping you here, then. The gods saw just how much I lost it when you're gone, and, and... [16:23] <~SU_Tempest> [Ghost] Look, Jonah, do me a favor before I start feeling strange ghost urges. [16:23] <Jonah> That's - what do you need? [16:23] <Jonah> I'll do anything, /everything./ [16:23] <~SU_Tempest> [Ghost] I don't care how, but find a shrine, or some other way to get divine attention. Get a wish. Get divine favors. I don't want to possess an object to exist again in physical form. I want to be back in my own body. [16:24] <~SU_Tempest> [Ghost] ANYTHING. But PLEASE bring me back to life if you can. It sucks being stuck with an objective I cannot complete. [16:25] <~SU_Tempest> [Ghost] I'd ask you if I can possess one of your guns but I'd HATE being a disembodied shrine maiden stuck inside a gun. Besides people would look at you funny if you had a gun that could talk. [16:25] <Jonah> That's... that was the plan. First shrine I found, I was going to give everything I had to bring you back. I even went to your old shrine, in Room 5454, but - they removed it. [16:25] <Jonah> ... [16:25] * Jonah gives a few, comforting pats to Malika. [16:25] <~SU_Tempest> [Ghost] I'm not surprised. My death was reported officially. [16:25] <~SU_Tempest> [Ghost] Shit, I saw it happen. [16:26] <Jonah> I mean, are you sure? Malika got a new engraving and tune up. [16:26] <~SU_Tempest> [Ghost] With me dead, my shrine was dismantled. It's an empty room now, isn't it? [16:26] <Jonah> She'd be pretty roomy... yeah. It's... it's gone. [16:26] <~SU_Tempest> [Ghost] Whoa, you got Malika repaired? What's that... Is that her name on the side? [16:26] <Jonah> They left a jewel there - a yellow-green one. I figured... maybe it was yours? From an old donation or something. [16:27] * Jonah keeps up a brave face as she scoots over the gun to her. [16:27] <Jonah> Yup. I told the Engineer that I was doing it in your memory. [16:27] <~SU_Tempest> [Ghost] Wow. It looks very pretty. You couldn't leave my rifle behind, huh? Sheesh... You're adorable, but I hope you've not let that get to your head too hard. I... uh. It's strange to say, but I know how much you, er... were attached to me. [16:27] <Jonah> Not as good as... as flowers on a grave, but steel roses never wither. [16:27] <~SU_Tempest> [Ghost] Hahaha. Always the poetic fiber, huh? [16:27] <Jonah> You know it, Carolyn. [16:28] <Jonah> And... and I need to be honest with you. [16:28] <~SU_Tempest> [Ghost] At this point, tell me anything. [16:28] <Jonah> I... I was in a really, really bad place when you... left. [16:28] <Jonah> I lashed out at the nurse who came to late, I... [16:28] <~SU_Tempest> [Ghost] Dang it, Jonah, I told you to keep it together... [16:29] <Jonah> I wanted to give your body a proper burial. So I kept it nice and neat as I... [16:29] <~SU_Tempest> [Ghost] Argh. Did you do anything stupid? [16:29] <Jonah> As I dragged it around, looking for an Outside Area to bury you in. [16:29] <Jonah> I... spooked a lot of folks. [16:29] <~SU_Tempest> [Ghost] WHAT. [16:30] <Jonah> The Guards had to drag me away from your body. [16:30] <Jonah> When I accidentally brought you into a Bank. [16:30] <~SU_Tempest> [Ghost] Oh, maaaan... Is that why it took longer than usual for my death to be registered? I STAYED A GHOST BEFORE MEETING THE GODS. But then they told me I'd stay a ghost anyway, so... Moot point. [16:30] <Jonah> It's - I'm sorry. I'm really, really sorry. [16:31] <Jonah> My place doesn't really have anything about disturbing corpses, so - I wasn't thinking, I just... wanted yto find a lace where you could rest. [16:31] <~SU_Tempest> [Ghost] Jonah, I told you not to do anything stupid! Get it together and do what I told you this time... I will let you be as clingy and lovey and stupid as you want AFTERWARDS... But PLEASE get me back to life FIRST. [16:31] <Jonah> Oh god, I'm babbling. I - I couldn't save everything, Carolyn. [16:31] <Jonah> I - that's the plan. That's the plan. [16:32] <Jonah> I just - wanted to let you know I managed to keep your gohei. [16:32] <~SU_Tempest> [Ghost] I don't care, it's OKAY. Just get on with it, okay? I can't stay with you. I don't think people want to see you talk to the air. It's REALLY hard for me to stay visible. [16:32] <Jonah> It's - are you sure? You won't... lose yourself, or anything? [16:33] <Jonah> I don't know how the ghost mechanics in Mazeworld work. Should - should I leave Malika here for you? [16:34] <~SU_Tempest> [Ghost] Silly you. Keep my rifle handy. I'll want THAT back when I get my body. And clothes. And gear. [16:35] <Jonah> ...The gods probably wouldn't bring you back to life with clothes. Okay, I'll get a miko uniform for you, all nice and fresh. [16:35] <~SU_Tempest> [Ghost] And don't you worry bout me, okay? The Gods can pick me up if I'm needed. Okay, I'm feeling really strange now. I should let you go on your way now. Don't forget; stop being stupid. Do that for me, okay? And get a wish! And mind where your rifle is pointing. And- ...oooh, my integrity. See you later I hope. [16:35] <Jonah> Definitely. Absolutely. Be safe! [16:36] <Jonah> Fuck up anybody trying to eat your soul! [16:36] <&Hebizuka> *Carolyn's ghost seems to disappear out of your sight. The room is empty again, aside from you.* [16:36] <Jonah> Stay near incense! [16:36] <&Hebizuka> *Unfortunately your last sentences don't receive any reply. It seems she went on to another area.* [16:36] * Jonah slumps down, cradling Malika to her chest again. [16:37] <Jonah> She's never going to... of course not, she's a damned shrine maiden. And an honest one. [16:37] <Jonah> I... I gotta be more professional when she gets back. She'd prefer that. [16:38] <Jonah> And I... gotta get some rest. Just... just a sit down. [16:38] * Jonah closes her eyes and leans down on her knees, trying to focus on the chill of the ghost's touch. [16:39] <Jonah> Carolyn... Carolyn, Carolyn... please don't feel indebted to me.
