From Mazeworld

[13:04] <&Hebizuka> *Welcome back to the Mazes, Jonah. You are currently attempting Mission 4, and you have Prisca de Stilcore as a temporary ally. You have visited a total of 130 rooms. You currently feel satiated, and you are otherwise healthy. !mrooms1 to continue* [13:04] <+Jonah> !mrooms1 [13:04] <&Hebizuka> [ Jonah ] Unique door: 5302 - Roomstyle: 270 - Enemy strength: 1 /6 [13:05] <+Jonah> Let's keep on going, I suppose. I gotta admit though, I've never actually seen a series of rooms that was just one straight line. [13:06] <&Hebizuka> *You follow Prisca inside a regular, featureless room. You immediately notice something is amiss here; there were traces of fighting here; a lot of spent casings on the floor. Then you see the two hellhounds blocking your path. Prisca seems excited more than scared, which is unsettling.* [13:07] <+Jonah> That's, uh. Uhhhhhh. You've faced these things before? [13:07] <+Jonah> Because - those are /freaky./ [13:07] <~SU_Tempest> [Prisca] One or twice before. Cmon! Let's rock! [13:07] <~SU_Tempest> *She gets ready to fight.* [13:08] <+Jonah> Why is everyone I team up with a bloodthirsty hound. [13:08] <+Jonah> @cover [13:08] <MazeBot> An empty plastic crate. (Health: 20, LDV modifier: -2. AC Eqv: Hardskin. Pass-through threshold: 6+ dmg. Pain modifier: x0.75) [13:08] <~SU_Tempest> [Prisca] Oooh, we'll take them by surprise? Sneaky beaky style huh? [13:10] <&Hebizuka> *You drag Prisca along with you behind cover, so fast you need not to roll - thanks to Ninja Speed.* [13:10] * +Jonah ignores Prisca's commentary for now, trusting her new legs to get her to sweet, sweet safety. [13:10] <&Hebizuka> *You have maintained stealth, and may get the drop on the hounds for this first turn.* [13:10] <&Hebizuka> *What will you do? [13:10] <+Jonah> Okay, so - I take one, you take the other, Prisca? [13:11] <+Jonah> No sense focusing fire, we can probably drop one each. [13:11] <+Jonah> I hope. [13:12] <~SU_Tempest> [Prisca] Naturally. ~ [13:13] <+Jonah> Alrighty... [13:14] <+Jonah> *4 shots Semi-Auto, Malika, Hellhound A* [13:21] <&Hebizuka> *Prisca will point her shotgun at the other 'hound, going for three shots.* [13:21] <+Jonah> Incidentally, are these things edible? [13:21] <&Hebizuka> *Since you both maintained stealth, none of the hellhounds will attack this turn.* [13:22] <&Hebizuka> *Kill it before you eat it, mkay?* [13:22] <&Hebizuka> *Order: Prisca, You.* [13:22] <&Hebizuka> *Prisca's turn...* [13:22] <&Hebizuka> @roll 3#2d6 [13:22] <MazeBot> Hebizuka: 7;7;10 [13:22] <+Jonah> *Bah. It's like people have never eaten the freshest meat delicately carved from still-living animals.* [13:22] <&Hebizuka> *Prisca seems to be shooting flechette.* [13:23] <+Jonah> *Well. Let's see what they can do. Probably worse than buckshot, but...* [13:23] <&Hebizuka> *An enormous amount of flechette strike the hellhound in the abdomen; you can't count just how many holes and wound channels have just been torn!* [13:24] <&Hebizuka> *Shots 1-3: Hit (13 flech.), Hit (14 flech.), Hit (17 flech.)* [13:24] <&Hebizuka> Prisca [M4S90] Hellhound [13:24] <&Hebizuka> *Kill not credited to you.* [13:24] <&Hebizuka> *Your turn. You may roll now.* [13:25] <+Jonah> @roll 4#2d6 [13:25] <MazeBot> Jonah: 5;6;4;7 [13:25] <&Hebizuka> *Shots 1-4: Miss, Miss, Miss, Hit.* [13:26] <&Hebizuka> *You have wounded your target, but it survived.* [13:27] <&Hebizuka> *Turn 2. Stealth has been pretty obviously broken by now, so the hellhound that survives is more than aware of you two now...* [13:27] <&Hebizuka> *What will you do?* [13:27] <+Jonah> Fucking - I /hate/ non-buckshot! [13:29] * +Jonah tosses Malika to the side, freeing up her hands for an old-fashioned quick-draw! [13:30] <&Hebizuka> *Good thing you have a sling... It's not actually tossed on your side.* [13:30] <+Jonah> *3 shots, 686 Revolver, Hellhound A.* [13:30] <&Hebizuka> *Just in case, Prisca trains her shotgun on the survivor and fires once more.* [13:30] <&Hebizuka> *The hellhound howls, and rushes towards you - going to attack in melee with a bite, and in turn bypassing cover.* [13:31] <&Hebizuka> *Order: Hellhound, You, Prisca* [13:31] <&Hebizuka> *Hound's turn...* [13:31] <&Hebizuka> @bodyaim [13:31] <MazeBot> [LIMB] Right arm [13:31] <&Hebizuka> @roll 2d6 [13:31] <MazeBot> Hebizuka: 7 [13:31] <&Hebizuka> *As if instinctively guessing what makes you dangerous, the hound goes for your right arm. You know, the part of your body that's UNARMORED.* [13:36] <&Hebizuka> *It hurts a fair bit, but less than you'd have thought. Unfortunately the attack is otherwise pretty merciless. Your top takes significant damage (it is now Worn). You took a fair bit of damage to the right arm, including an injury; a bleeding open wound; you lose a bit of blood on the spot due to the attack.* [13:37] <&Hebizuka> *It's now your turn, though...* [13:38] <+Jonah> FUCKING DOGS. FUCKING NON-BUCKSHOT! [13:43] <&Hebizuka> *You may roll now. [13:43] <+Jonah> @roll 3#2d6 [13:43] <MazeBot> Jonah: 4;2;5 [13:43] <&Hebizuka> *The second round malfunctioned!* [13:44] <&Hebizuka> *Shots 1-3: Miss, Dud round, Miss.* [13:44] <&Hebizuka> *Actually counted as 2 shots fired only (and two misses)* [13:44] <&Hebizuka> *The hellhound is unfazed by your attempts at plugging him...* [13:44] <&Hebizuka> *Prisca's turn.* [13:44] <&Hebizuka> @roll 2d6 [13:44] <MazeBot> Hebizuka: 4 [13:45] <&Hebizuka> *Shot 1: Hit (9 flech.) [13:46] <&Hebizuka> *The hellhound yelps in pain; it survived, but it doesn't look good...* [13:46] <~SU_Tempest> [Prisca] Get the fuck off my business partner you goddamn mutt! [13:46] <&Hebizuka> *End of Turn 2.* [13:46] <&Hebizuka> *You're bleeding.* [13:47] <&Hebizuka> *Turn 3. What will you do?* [13:47] <+Jonah> NEXT TIME WE RUN FROM THESE THINGS! [13:47] <+Jonah> *3 shots, 686 Revolver, Hellhound A.* [13:48] <&Hebizuka> *Prisca repeats, going for one shot. The hellhound attempts biting you out again.* [13:48] <&Hebizuka> *This time you're faster than the devil dog.* [13:48] <&Hebizuka> *Order: You, Hound, Prisca.* [13:49] <&Hebizuka> *Your turn; you may roll now.* [13:50] <+Jonah> @roll 3#2d6 [13:50] <MazeBot> Jonah: 7;10;9 [13:50] <&Hebizuka> *Shots 1-3: Hit, Hit, Hit.* [13:54] <&Hebizuka> *Three rounds of .357 Magnum hollow-point. That is bound to be scary for anyone, right? Well, the hellhound seems to take none of your shit and resists well to the shots...* [13:54] <&Hebizuka> * [13:54] <+Jonah> WHAT THE FUCK [13:55] <&Hebizuka> *...or he would, if he wasn't already fairly hurt.* [13:55] <&Hebizuka> *The hellhound staggers, and seems to be about to bite you again, when it finally passes out in shock, and dies moments later.* [13:55] <&Hebizuka> Jonah [S&W 686] Hellhound [13:55] <&Hebizuka> *End of fight! (3 turns)* [13:56] <&Hebizuka> *You're bleeding.* [13:56] * +Jonah gives the doggy corpse a spiteful kick, before ripping out a bandage from her vest pouch and rolling up her arm. [13:57] <~SU_Tempest> [Prisca] Whew, damn. That could've gone better, but, whoo. I feel fired up! This is what I'm living for! That and priceless archeological treasures, of course... [13:57] <~SU_Tempest> [Prisca] You all right there? [13:57] <+Jonah> Yeah, just give me a sec, I need to - oh god, do these things have Hell-Rabies. [13:57] <&Hebizuka> [Heal] Right arm wound closed. [13:57] <+Jonah> Tell me Hell-Rabies isn't a /thing/ here. [13:57] <~SU_Tempest> [Prisca] Rab-what? [13:58] <+Jonah> ...Rabies? [13:58] <+Jonah> Viral disease, causes frothing at the mouth, frightening because it can transfer between /any/ land mammals? [13:58] <+Jonah> Like, say, dogs and humans? [13:58] <~SU_Tempest> [Prisca] Oh, hahaha. No. That's a thing of long gone past, thankfully! Even demons are relatively clean... [13:58] <+Jonah> Relatively. Oh god I hate this place. [13:58] <~SU_Tempest> [Prisca] You'll be fine! Just don't lose all your blood or let them eat you up. [13:59] <+Jonah> You are /far too gung ho/ for a librarian. [13:59] <~SU_Tempest> *She said that with a much more cheery voice tone than anyone sane would have used to say that.* [13:59] * +Jonah sits down for a moment to reload her Revolver as well as Malika. [13:59] <~SU_Tempest> [Prisca] Hey, being behind a desk gets boring sometimes, and I've grown bored of porn when I turned 20. [13:59] <~SU_Tempest> [Prisca] When you do the job I do, you get a LOT of free time. So I had to find another hobby... [13:59] <+Jonah> You, my good friend, need to broaden your fetishes. [14:00] <+Jonah> And your other hobby was... pest control? [14:00] <~SU_Tempest> [Prisca] Oh no, that's my -job-. [14:00] <~SU_Tempest> [Prisca] I don't LIKE anyone trying to vandalize my library. [14:00] <~SU_Tempest> [Prisca] Shooting for library defense is my duty. Shooting hellhounds while on my way out is -fun-! [14:01] <&Hebizuka> [Reload] Colt M16A1 "Malika": +4 rounds [20+1/20, 21x FMJ] [14:01] <&Hebizuka> *5.56x45mm NATO FMJ remaining: 109 in backpack* [14:01] <&Hebizuka> *What do you wish to reload the 686 with?* [14:02] <+Jonah> *Let's use the loose, uhm, XMJ rounds. Whatever those do.* [14:02] <&Hebizuka> [Reload] S&W 686: +6 rounds [6/6, 6x XPD] [14:03] <+Jonah> Seriously, matchlocks were so much /easier/ to deal with... [14:03] <&Hebizuka> *.357 Magnum XPD remaining: 44 in backpack* [14:03] <~SU_Tempest> [Prisca] Matchlocks also massively sucked at being accurate. I'd bet you would prefer a sword to one of these. [14:04] <+Jonah> YES. Yes I would. [14:04] <~SU_Tempest> [Prisca] Haha~. Let's move on, we will be late for meeting Marcus. [14:04] <+Jonah> Swords are /simple./ You don't get dud rounds or shaky aiming with a sword. [14:04] <+Jonah> Oh, alright - no time for dog meat, eh? [14:04] <+Jonah> !mrooms1 [14:04] <&Hebizuka> [ Jonah ] Unique door: 513 - Roomstyle: 293 - Enemy strength: 4 /6 [14:05] <+Jonah> Wait, actually - give me a second. [14:05] <~SU_Tempest> [Prisca] I had my breakfast already. [14:05] <+Jonah> Sorry, Malika, but clearly I don't know how to use you right. [14:05] * +Jonah carefully stows Malika away, and pulls out her dirty-looking AA-12. [14:05] <&Hebizuka> *Unfortunately you are not hallucinating enough to hear your gun reply to you.* [14:06] <~SU_Tempest> [Prisca] Hot DAMN. [14:06] <+Jonah> I KNOW [14:06] <+Jonah> IT'S SO GOOD [14:06] <+Jonah> I want to make /love/ to this thing/ [14:07] <&Hebizuka> *Swapping guns...* [14:08] <+Jonah> So, Prisca? Why Flechette? [14:08] <+Jonah> Buckshot seems a lot simpler to use. And cheaper. [14:08] <~SU_Tempest> [Prisca] Dunno. Bought a few boxes on a hunch. [14:09] <&Hebizuka> *Prisca uses the occasion to reload as well.* [14:09] <+Jonah> That's. Hmmmm... [14:10] <~SU_Tempest> [Prisca] A friend wanted to sell them to me at a cut-down price cause he was getting rid of old gear, I got a few shells. Why refuse cheap ammo? [14:10] * +Jonah takes out the AA-12's magazine, changing the order of the ammunition. [14:10] <~SU_Tempest> [Prisca] All he asked in exchange was that I treat him to a drink. [14:10] <+Jonah> *Okay, so - let's do five buckshot, five Flachette, and 10 Buckshot in that order.* [14:11] <+Jonah> What kind of drink? [14:11] <&Hebizuka> [Reload] AA-12 20-round drum magazine composition: [<< 5 Buck 5 Flech 10 Buck]. Confirm? (this will add 5 buckshot shells, and remove 5 flechette shells from your inventory.) [14:12] <~SU_Tempest> [Prisca] He's fond of that one cocktail, I think it's called the Fifty BMG? [14:12] <+Jonah> *Confirmed* [14:12] <&Hebizuka> *Adjusting magazine composition, please wait* [14:12] <+Jonah> It's a good one, I hear. How about you? [14:13] <&Hebizuka> *Adjusted!* [14:13] <~SU_Tempest> [Prisca] Oh me, I don't drink a lot. [14:13] <~SU_Tempest> [Prisca] You finished with your pretty toy? Let's go now. [14:14] * +Jonah heads out the only door, trying not to put too much weight on her right arm. [14:15] <&Hebizuka> *A shower room. Someone abandoned money in one of the open lockers...* [14:16] <+Jonah> ...Ugh, I haven't had a shower in /ages./ [14:16] * +Jonah sighs at the lost opportunity as she loots the locker for cash. [14:18] <~SU_Tempest> [Prisca] Sorry, we don't really have the time! [14:18] <~SU_Tempest> [Prisca] Don't worry, I smell of old books, and I always imagine Marcus got out of a dragon's anus whenever he returns from exploring, so it's not like I'm not used to smelling bad~ [14:19] <&Hebizuka> [Money] 147 P$ [14:20] <+Jonah> But old books and dragon butts actually smell nice. [14:20] <+Jonah> It's blood and gore and sweat that's iffy. [14:20] <+Jonah> !mrooms1 [14:20] <&Hebizuka> [ Jonah ] Unique door: 120 - Roomstyle: 373 - Enemy strength: 3 /6 [14:21] <+Jonah> Let's keep going, then. [14:21] <~SU_Tempest> [Prisca] Haha, ew! [14:21] <+Jonah> What, it's true! Think about it, if dragon butts actually /stank/ all the dragons would kill themselves. [14:21] <+Jonah> Because they'd have to smell it /all the time./ [14:22] <&Hebizuka> *You finally reach a sort of storage room, where there appears to be mostly empty crates and trash. An archaeologist is standing around, waiting for someone - presumably Prisca.* [14:22] <~SU_Tempest> [Prisca] Hey! Marcus! [14:23] <~SU_Tempest> [Prisca] I brought a buddy! She's going to help us for our plan! [14:23] <+Jonah> Er - heya. Nice to meet you...? [14:23] * +Jonah 's a bit nervous when meeting friends of insane people, but who isn't? [14:24] <~SU_Tempest> [Marcus] *He extends a hand - you can't help but notice the revolver he carries, as well as the huge backpack.* McBride. Marcus McBride. Archaeologist. Pleased to meet ya. And you are? [14:25] * +Jonah shakes it right back, falling back on ettiquite training. It's comforting. [14:25] <~SU_Tempest> *The archeodude has a painfully strong handshake, though.* [14:26] <+Jonah> Jonah, Paladin, and Archaeologist's Assistant, apparently. [14:26] * +Jonah shakes EVEN HARDER. [14:26] <+Jonah> *Or I would if my arm didn't get a chunk bit out of it.* [14:26] <+Jonah> *Really I'm a bit limp.* [14:27] <~SU_Tempest> [Marcus] I'm an old man, as you can see. I've done a bunch of attempts at being famous, but I've never managed to strike it out yet. [14:28] * +Jonah takes a better look at the both of them, now that there's time for a breather. [14:28] <~SU_Tempest> [Marcus] That said, I do sit on a decent amount of cash... But, you know what it is. I want my one, last, huge find before I retire in a bedroom, two or three away from a beach area, where I can piss off from civilization and just laze about on my fat stacks of loot. [14:28] <+Jonah> ...Mazeworld has /retirements?/ [14:28] <~SU_Tempest> [Marcus] Well, if you have enough cash, you can get away with not having a job. [14:29] <+Jonah> So you're not one of those archeologists that believe in donating their finds to museums? [14:30] <&Hebizuka> *Prisca is an adult, pacific islander X-female. She is tall, thin, with shoulder-length black hair, a pair of gray eyes, and she wears brass earrings. She has barely anything in the way of breasts, wears the standard garb of librarians, and carries the standard Benelli M4 Super 90 as well as two shotgun bandoliers; one on each thigh.* [14:32] <&Hebizuka> *Marcus is an aged, white male. He is very tall, slightly overweight, has shaved gray hair, a pair of black eyes, wears a metallic collar with dogtags to his name, and you can guess the end of a large tattoo on his back, just by looking at his neck. He wears the standard archeologist garb, carries a Colt Python, as well as a less-standard PLCE backpack, which looks pretty large on his back.* [14:34] <~SU_Tempest> [Marcus] Fuck that! I'm all for private collections. What good would it do to expose our finds? The best I'll do is take a lot of pictures, a lot of interviews and a lot of royalties from selling books about the shit I find, but I'm sure as hell not going to leave it out in the open for all to see - and plot theft on. [14:34] <~SU_Tempest> [Marcus] I mean I'm all for people being aware of our rich history, but the actual loot is mine to keep. Well. OURS to keep, now that we've got ourselves a triumvirate... [14:35] <~SU_Tempest> *Prisca is all smiles, she seems very excited.* [14:35] <+Jonah> Ahahah. That's a relief - so, now that Prisca and I are here, where do we start? [14:36] <~SU_Tempest> [Marcus] I thought you'd never ask. Well, like with any good plan, we need two things. Information, first and foremost. But also, gear. [14:36] <~SU_Tempest> [Prisca] Yeah, all we have right now is the legend, and my translated notes. I do know our starting point though. The legends speak of a crown, but I was waiting for Marcus to give me -- oh. [14:37] <~SU_Tempest> [Marcus] I have what you asked for. The last few ancient texts that speak about it. [14:37] <~SU_Tempest> *The librarian hurriedly takes them, and starts deciphering the undescribable and unreadable symbols you can glance on the aged papers..* [14:38] <+Jonah> ...Wow. How did those /survive/ the years? [14:38] <~SU_Tempest> *Prisca smiles wide. Apparently what it says is important, but she forgets to explain.* [14:38] <~SU_Tempest> [Marcus] We have been exceptionally lucky. We found the tomb of one of the King's subjects, and... Well. Prisca explains it better than I do. [14:40] <~SU_Tempest> [Prisca] This text is the last words of one of the closest subjects of King Maratuxa! Holy gods, this is our ticket! The text talks about him being one of the only people who witnessed the King in person thrown the crown away, but admits that he returned to take it, and hide it somewhere else. [14:40] <+Jonah> Did they have Room numbers back then? It might be tricky to find where he hid it... [14:41] <~SU_Tempest> [Prisca] It says here that the subject firmly believed in the King's visions of impending doom, and thought that if there were any survivors among his people, they'd be able to find his belongings, find the crown, and bring another King to power to lead his people back to glory. As we all know, this never happened. But you know what this means, right? [14:41] <~SU_Tempest> [Marcus] They did, but they used a rather archaic counting system... I forget what it is but I think we can still find it. [14:41] <~SU_Tempest> [Prisca] OH SHIT YES, THERE'S A MAP [14:42] <~SU_Tempest> [Prisca] Oh, wait, no. It's just a doodle of the King's symbols. Dang it, I get so excited sometimes! [14:43] <+Jonah> That's... hmmm. Mind if I take a looksee? [14:44] <~SU_Tempest> [Prisca] The text ends by explaining the crown alone is not complete. It needs specially cut, uniquely shaped gems, designed to be attached to the crown... But they were removed and separated. [14:45] <~SU_Tempest> [Prisca] It also says that if we have the full crown and we bring it to the King's tomb, we may find his remains - and his belongings! In other words: THE JACKPOT. [14:45] <~SU_Tempest> *She lets you observe the ancient texts if you wish to.* [14:47] <~SU_Tempest> *You unfortunately can't read the ancient languages.* [14:49] <~SU_Tempest> [Marcus] Anyhow. Prisca, Jonah? [14:51] <~SU_Tempest> [Marcus] We have a responsibility here. Don't talk about the operation. We cannot let our plans be compromised by curious bystanders, or worse. Prisca, you keep the texts, and you keep them safe. I'll go scout around for more information, I think I know where to search to find the crown. And as for you, Jonah ... [14:51] <~SU_Tempest> *He waits for you to spring up to attention.* [15:01] <+Jonah> Er - yes! [15:01] <+Jonah> What's my job, sir? [15:03] <~SU_Tempest> [Marcus] Your role is simple. Lay low, get some gear. Next time we're meeting, we are chasing this treasure. [15:03] <~SU_Tempest> [Marcus] In fact, I have something for you here in my bag... [15:04] <+Jonah> A down payment already? You don't have to - [15:04] <+Jonah> *What /is/ he giving me?* [15:04] <~SU_Tempest> [Marcus] It's not much, and if you don't need it I won't hate you if you sell it, but. [15:04] <&Hebizuka> [Weapon] Class 3 - IMI Micro UZI machine pistol | 9x19mm Parabellum - Semi/Full | No accessory | UZI 32-round mag, +1 | Weight: 3 - [31+1/32, 32x FMJ] - Cond: Brand new / Clns: Perfect [15:05] <+Jonah> ...Whoa. This must have been a pretty penny. [15:05] <~SU_Tempest> [Marcus] To be fair I didn't buy it. *smirk* [15:06] <+Jonah> That's... yeah, I'll keep it on me. I certainly have enough - pffffffffffft. [15:06] <~SU_Tempest> [Marcus] It's your to keep if you want it. [15:06] <+Jonah> I'll take t, then. [15:06] <+Jonah> But, ah - do either of you have phones? [15:06] <+Jonah> I'm usually out and about, so a cell number or a designated meeting place would be good. [15:07] <~SU_Tempest> [Marcus] Don't worry, in due time and place you'll find us, I'm sure. [15:07] <+Jonah> That's - well, if you insist. [15:08] * +Jonah gratefully takes the offered Uzi, and tosses it into her backpack. [15:08] <+Jonah> Anything else, before this meeting breaks up? [15:15] <&Hebizuka> [Weight] (Pack/main inv) 58.63/60 [15:17] <~SU_Tempest> [Marcus] Well, not much for now. Other than I'm pleased to meet ya and that I hope our team will go far. [15:17] <~SU_Tempest> [Prisca] Same for me! Real pleasure to have you among us! [15:18] <+Jonah> It's been a blast, you two. Hope you two stay safe! [15:18] <&Hebizuka> *Mission complete.* [15:18] * +Jonah stretches for just a moment, before checking out the doors. [15:19] <&Hebizuka> *You may leave through any one of the three doors here. Next special room at the 140th.* [15:19] <+Jonah> !mrooms3 [15:19] <&Hebizuka> [ Jonah ] Left door: 1850 - Front door: 3165 - Right door: 3675 - Roomstyle: 546 - Enemy strength: 4 /6 [15:19] * +Jonah keeps the AA-12 close to her chest, and heads through the front door. [15:21] <&Hebizuka> *You feel a faint pleasant feeling of contentness in your stomach, which passes quickly, as if you feel suddenly a bit lighter.* [15:21] <&Hebizuka> *You climb a few stairs up, and reach a medieval style room. There is ammunition on the floor...* [15:21] <+Jonah> ...Damn. I really should have insisted on carving up those hounds. [15:22] <+Jonah> HOLY SHIT I'M HOME [15:23] * +Jonah giggles more than a bit deliriously as she examines the room. Gods, let there be suits of battle-ready plate being used as decoration. [15:23] <&Hebizuka> *The ammo on the floor breaks the feeling of being home.* [15:23] <+Jonah> Or a sword, or a /shield./ [15:23] <+Jonah> Ooh, man, I'd kill for a good heater shield right now. [15:23] <&Hebizuka> *There's an old style bokshelf with maybe one or two battered grimoires. You also see a large painting on one of the walls, which amusingly depict a knight in full medieval armor, posing with sword.* [15:24] * +Jonah is promptly ignoring the ammunition for now, because dear lord did she miss the trappings of home. [15:24] <+Jonah> Grim - hmm. [15:24] <&Hebizuka> *No shields, or armor, or anything tangible outside of the furniture though.* [15:24] * +Jonah heads over to the bookshelf, checking out the ear-marked books. What's in 'em? [15:26] <&Hebizuka> *Blank pages! Looking closer, you actually notice whatever was written on the pages actually faded away.* [15:26] <&Hebizuka> *You distinguish traces of writing, but it's unreadable.* [15:26] <+Jonah> ...Hmmmm. [15:30] <+Jonah> Okay, they taught us this trick for copying documents, this should work... [15:31] * +Jonah flips open to the first page where she can find traces of writing, and places a blank sheet of paper on top of it. [15:32] * +Jonah brings out her pencils, and begins rubbing the graphite all over the blank page, lengthwise of the pencil itself. [15:33] <+Jonah> Alright, if this was done with a physical utensil, this should catch the indents on the paper... [15:33] <&Hebizuka> *You can catch faint traces of writing using this old police detective technique, but nothing conclusive. You catch half of a word: "Derus", and traces of words, but it's otherwise inconlcusive." [15:34] <+Jonah> Damn. I need better pencils. [15:34] <+Jonah> Still... Prisca might appreciate these. [15:35] * +Jonah cries ugly, ugly bitch tears as she tosses out some stuff to make room for the books. Like the two dragon pictures, and the SFW selfie. [15:37] <&Hebizuka> *You're going to take two old grimoires. Confirm?* [15:37] <+Jonah> *Confirm* [15:38] <&Hebizuka> *Meaningless items: 9/10* [15:41] <+Jonah> Alright. Back to reality. [15:42] * +Jonah sighs as she turns, finally, to the ammunition. What's in front of her? [15:43] <&Hebizuka> [Ammunition] 40mm caseless grenade - VOG-25 HE/Frag, 3 rounds - weight 3 [15:44] <+Jonah> Nothing I can use. [15:44] <+Jonah> Again.

Straight on through the front! [15:46] <&Hebizuka> *You no longer feel in pain.* [15:47] <&Hebizuka> *A washitsu. You spot some basic furniture here, and some clothing abandoned on the futon.* [15:48] <+Jonah> ...How much does the futon weigh? [15:48] <+Jonah> Because fuck yeah, easily movable bedding. [15:48] <&Hebizuka> *Too bulky to be carried.* [15:48] <+Jonah> ...Wait, even if I roll it up? [15:48] <+Jonah> That's. Huuuh. [15:49] <+Jonah> That's. Screw it, don't question it. How about that clothing? [15:50] <&Hebizuka> [Clothing] Arms addon - Twaron arm pads - AC Kevlar-2 - Blunt-PROOF, Sharp-resistant, Piercing-resistant - Fire-retardant - Weight: 5 - [Condition: Good] [15:52] <+Jonah> I COULD HAVE USED THESE EARLIER. [15:52] * +Jonah puts these right on ASAP. [15:52] <+Jonah> Yes, sweet sweet /armor./ [15:56] <&Hebizuka> *The thick pads cover your arms nicely, and the added fire-retardant layer is an added reassuring level of protection.* [15:56] <+Jonah> !mrooms3 [15:56] <&Hebizuka> [ Jonah ] Left door: 5642 - Front door: 3533 - Right door: 1840 - Roomstyle: 67 - Enemy strength: 2 /6 [15:56] <+Jonah> And straight again. [16:00] <&Hebizuka> *A corridor; long narrow area with five doors (!mrooms5). Someone abandoned a firearm on the floor here...* [16:01] <+Jonah> What kind? [16:02] <&Hebizuka> [Weapon] Class 1 - Tula Arms VSS Vintorez sniper rifle | 9x39mm - Semi/Full | Scope[PSO-3,8x], Silencer(I) | VSS 10-round mag, +1 | Weight: 14 - [9+1/10, 10x FMJ] - Cond: Excellent / Clns: Grimy [16:02] <+Jonah> Nope.

[16:05] <&Hebizuka> *A regular, featureless room. There is really not much here at all... except for a pill on the floor.* [16:06] * +Jonah heads over to the pill, waving the grotesque, ugly prosthetic sticking out of her arm over it. [16:06] <&Hebizuka> *ICIS identified:* [Meds] White tablet - Oxycodone - Pain-50%, FT+1, Nausea for 2d6 turns - Weight: 0.1 [16:06] <+Jonah> Lance really, /really/ needs to work on integration.

[16:07] <&Hebizuka> *The readings of your analyzed meds appear over your eyes.* [16:07] <&Hebizuka> *It appears even your eyes are augmented.* [16:07] <+Jonah> ...I could have done with audio, Lance. I /swear./ [16:07] * +Jonah grumbles and groans as she slips tohe Oxycodone into her backpack. [16:08] <&Hebizuka> [Weight] (Pack/main inv) 58.73/60 [16:08] <+Jonah> Alrighty...

[16:11] <&Hebizuka> *You barge inside an office. This time you see a citizen working at one of the computers. They don't appear to have a weapon, and carry a shoulder bag with stuff inside.* [16:11] <+Jonah> Whoops! [16:12] <+Jonah> Sorry, I'm just passing through!\ [16:12] <&Hebizuka> *Looking closer you notice that office worker is eating something. They carry a blunt knife, being used to cut up a pizza in parts.* [16:12] * +Jonah takes a quick glance at the citizen's computer - any chance they're looking at porn? [16:12] <~SU_Tempest> [Citizen] Oh, you're not bothering me. I've received two pizzas I never asked for, and here I am, with two pizzas. [16:13] <&Hebizuka> *The second pizza is already cut in slices, on the other side of the desk.* [16:13] <+Jonah> ...Can you /finish/ two pizzas? [16:13] <~SU_Tempest> [Citizen] I haven't even started eating. I figure I should just sell them. Or give em away. Want some? [16:13] <+Jonah> Yes please! [16:13] <&Hebizuka> *The computer is displaying various documents, none of which lewd.* [16:13] * +Jonah waves her ICIS over the food first, making sure it is, in fact, delicious pizza. [16:14] <&Hebizuka> [Food] Fast-food - Pizza (entire). 8d10 (A "stack" of 8 pizza slices, weighs only 1 unit.) [16:14] <~SU_Tempest> [Citizen] Here. [16:14] <+Jonah> Thanks. I, uh - I have some brandy here, if you'd like some to go with your meal. [16:14] <~SU_Tempest> [Citizen] Nah, thanks. I don't like alcohol. [16:15] <+Jonah> Fair 'nough. [16:15] * +Jonah sits down to enjoy a delicious pizza slice. [16:15] <~SU_Tempest> [Citizen] Actually, if you could help me in a way, that'd be nice. [16:15] <+Jonah> Oh - sure, I'm down for that. [16:15] <+Jonah> What do you need help with? [16:15] * +Jonah finally takes the time to examine the citizen. [16:15] <~SU_Tempest> [Citizen] But I'll let ya eat first if you're hungry... [16:16] <+Jonah> Oh, it's fine. I was just going to munch a bit and leave it the rest for later. I can help you now, if you'd like. [16:17] <&Hebizuka> [Weight] (Pack/main inv) 59.73/60 [16:17] <~SU_Tempest> [Citizen] You'll never believe it but. See this knife? I actually ordered a weapon from a blacksmith that was going out of business. I asked him for one of those fancy combat knives, you know? The DV-2? Awesome stuff. But instead he actually forged me a freaking blunt knife. [16:18] <~SU_Tempest> [Citizen] So here I am carrying it, because the story behind it is so hilarious I don't ever want to get rid of it. [16:18] <+Jonah> Pfffffffft. [16:18] <+Jonah> Need a new knife, then? [16:19] <~SU_Tempest> [Citizen] Actually, a gun would be nice. I don't want to be stuck using a butter knife for self defense, because even my fists would do a better job. [16:19] <~SU_Tempest> [Citizen] So uh... if you had by any chance a gun you want to get rid of, I'd be grateful. [16:19] <&Hebizuka> *You observe the Citizen...* [16:20] <&Hebizuka> *The Citizen is a young, brown-skinned X-male. He is dwarvish in height, of average constitution, has short, dyed-orange hair, a pair of brown eyes, wears no particular trinket, and has a scar across the left bicep.* [16:22] <+Jonah> That's, hmmmm... [16:22] <+Jonah> Well, I do have a couple guns, but I'm not sure if they're worth a pizza, you know? [16:22] <+Jonah> But, you're a cutie. How about you give me a phone number too, and I'll give you a gun. And maybe a 'gun'. [16:22] <~SU_Tempest> [Citizen] Psh. Anything is worth good food if you ask me. And I'm pretty desperate. I don't have the time to reach a gun shop, and I'm on my last coins... It's a favor I ask of you, you don't have to if you can't. [16:23] <~SU_Tempest> [Citizen] Well I don't actually have a phone yet... [16:23] * +Jonah tosses him what Jonah imagines to be a seductive wi - awwwww. [16:24] <+Jonah> Well, okay. How about - well, why don't you tell me about yourself? [16:24] <+Jonah> What's your job here? What do you do for a living? [16:26] <~SU_Tempest> [Citizen] What is there to know about? I'm a 27-year-old office worker who regularly has epic battles against his computer. [16:27] <~SU_Tempest> *His voice tone is rather sarcastic.* [16:27] <+Jonah> Well, sure, but what does your office /do?/ [16:27] <+Jonah> Do you take care of energy wiring in a Sector? Administering licenses for businesses? [16:28] <+Jonah> Secretly run a prostitution ring? Come on, give me something. I keep on running into these office rooms, and I can never figure out what they're for. [16:28] <~SU_Tempest> [Citizen] My job, my job... It's rather boring in fact. We receive sales results in paper form from all over the Mazes - mostly shops, and we turn them into computer files for proper archival so that the businesses sending them to us can dispose of them. [16:29] <~SU_Tempest> [Citizen] Archives suck, but that's all I'm good at. [16:30] <+Jonah> ...Hmmm. Ever wanted to be good at something more? [16:30] <+Jonah> Because, gotta say - that sounds like a /terrible/ job. [16:31] <~SU_Tempest> [Citizen] Most of the offices you'll find do archive work. [16:31] <+Jonah> I meant something more like - hunting. [16:31] <+Jonah> Game meat makes for a pretty penny, if you know how to do it right. [16:31] <~SU_Tempest> [Citizen] It's going to sound so pathetic but... I'm afraid of monsters. [16:31] <~SU_Tempest> [Citizen] I'm afraid of beasts in general. Hunting scares the shit out of me. [16:32] <+Jonah> ...Because you're afraid of getting hurt, or because you're afraid of hurting them. [16:32] <~SU_Tempest> [Citizen] Look at me. I'm a frail nerd. You'd break my arm just by slapping me. [16:33] <~SU_Tempest> [Citizen] Why do you think I ended up here? Heh. I'm pathetic. [16:33] <+Jonah> ...Ehehe. Keep a secret between you and I? [16:34] <~SU_Tempest> [Citizen] Yeah? [16:35] <+Jonah> You might be scared of monsters, but I'm scared of /life./ Every day, when I wake up, I think of just pulling the trigger on myself. [16:35] <+Jonah> I have... dreams, let's call 'em. Of places bigger, brighter than Mazeworld. More peaceful. [16:35] <~SU_Tempest> [Citizen] Whoa. Cool. A real suicidal. [16:36] <~SU_Tempest> *The nerdy office drone seems amazed more than scared or sad.* [16:36] <+Jonah> Yup. It's... I'm only living right now, because someone give their life for me. [16:36] <+Jonah> So I'm kinda obligated to live, since they can't. And - well, it's a bt of a pain in the ass, to be honest! [16:37] <~SU_Tempest> [Citizen] Sheesh. I would be too scared to off myself. I bet the Gods would laugh me out of the netherworld. [16:37] <~SU_Tempest> [Citizen] You're covered in combat gear and guns though... What are you, some kinda adventurer? [16:38] <+Jonah> Hahaha. Well, sorta. [16:38] <+Jonah> I'm a... well, the Gods came to me in a dream, and told me to go forth and kick ass. [16:38] <+Jonah> So I guess that makes me a Paladin. [16:39] <~SU_Tempest> [Citizen] You're even crazier than I thought. ... *beat* ... That's cool. [16:40] <+Jonah> Pffft. Well, let me finish my rambling before you decide how crazy I am. [16:41] <+Jonah> Kid - do you believe in angels? [16:41] <~SU_Tempest> [Citizen] It's not that I believe in them, it's "they exist". [16:41] <+Jonah> Oh good, you're faithful. That'll make things easier. [16:42] <~SU_Tempest> [Citizen] Not really. I just know they exist. Like demons. It's out there. [16:42] <~SU_Tempest> [Citizen] I don't particularly care for the gods. Shrine maidens are nice and all but it gets pretty boring to be fair. [16:43] <+Jonah> Hahahah. Well, alrighty. [16:43] <+Jonah> Now - ah, I'm sorry. I've forgotten my manners. My name's Jonah. What's yours? [16:44] <~SU_Tempest> [Citizen] Malcolm Sifford. My colleagues call me "Sif", though. I guess it's faster. Even my boss calls me Sif. [16:45] <+Jonah> Okay then - Sif, I'd like to talk to you about angels. [16:45] <+Jonah> You interested? [16:45] <~SU_Tempest> [Sif] *Shrug* I suppose? I have time to kill... [16:46] <+Jonah> Grand. Now, there are two interesting facts about angels; you won't hear about theese tidbits from shrine maidens, or any scripture, 'cause it's all on a need-to-know basis. [16:48] <+Jonah> When a person's up shit creek and without a paddle, when their life seems so terribly boring and meaningless, when everything just seems to have gone wrong... [16:49] <+Jonah> Sometimes, an angel will appear, and let that man start over. [16:49] <+Jonah> With me so far? [16:52] <~SU_Tempest> [Sif] Go on... [16:52] <~SU_Tempest> *He seems passive, but he is actually listening.* [16:53] * +Jonah nods, and unholsters the .357 Revolver, placing it on the desk. [16:53] <+Jonah> Second interesting fact? They only appear once. [16:54] <+Jonah> Malcolm Sifford. Today, I am your angel. [16:54] <+Jonah> You can either take that gun, and the ammo, and leave? [16:54] <+Jonah> Or you can take that gun, the ammo, and try to find out what you /really/ want to do with the rest of your life. [16:55] <~SU_Tempest> [Sif] You've gotta be joking. [16:57] <+Jonah> I told you to wait before you decided how crazy I was. [16:57] <~SU_Tempest> [Sif] Wish it was just easy to grab a gun and go out adventurin'. What I wanna do with my life? I want a fat stack of cash, a sandwich, a quiet bedroom and someone to lick my crotch all day long. But we don't always have what we want, so I work here, I'm single, and I'm poor. And I'm not even properly armed. [16:58] <~SU_Tempest> [Sif] I guess it's true the crazy people are the happiest, though. *He grins honestly* [16:59] * +Jonah grins back, nudging the revolver closer to him. [16:59] <+Jonah> Is that a yes then, Mister Sifford? [17:00] <~SU_Tempest> [Sif] Nah, I'm still a cowardly nerd. *Pushes the revolver back to you.* [17:00] <~SU_Tempest> [Sif] But you keep spreading that message and you'll find the right person, one who'll join you and stick by your side. Even if they get killed, I bet they'd still follow you as ghosts. [17:01] <~SU_Tempest> [Sif] You're inspiring, miss paladin. I just don't wanna die just yet. [17:01] <+Jonah> ...ahahahahaha. [17:02] * +Jonah laughs, taking back the Revolver - but taking out the beat up Kedr machine gun, as well as unholstering her old, never-used Ruger. [17:03] <+Jonah> I still owe you guns for the pizza, though. [17:03] <+Jonah> The machine gun here has ten shots, and - here are the magazines for the Ruger. [17:03] * +Jonah tosses those onto the desk as well. [17:04] <+Jonah> Take at /least/ one, Sif. It'd be a shame if you died. [17:04] <~SU_Tempest> [Sif] Heh. That's the most expensive pizza you've ever paid for. [17:04] <&Hebizuka> *He happily takes both guns, holstering the Mark III and bagging the rest in his shoulder bag.* [17:05] <+Jonah> The company was worth it. [17:05] <&Hebizuka> [Weight] (Tacvest/Mag pouches) 3/6 mags [17:05] <+Jonah> And... well. I can't quite lick your crotch /all/ day, but how about until you orgasm? [17:05] <+Jonah> Let you see what the wild side is like, hmm~? [17:05] <&Hebizuka> [Weight] (Pack/main inv) 54.73/60 [17:06] <~SU_Tempest> [Sif] Whoa now. We just met and you wanna get in my pants already? Sheesh, calm down, miss paladin. I dig the crazy but not that badly. [17:07] <+Jonah> Ahahahahahaha. Can't blame a girl for trying. [17:07] <~SU_Tempest> [Sif] How can someone as well-equipped as yourself, pun not intended, be single? [17:08] * +Jonah gives another self-deprecating grin. [17:08] <+Jonah> Mikos have vows of chastity. [17:08] <~SU_Tempest> [Sif] *Beat* ...whoa, you got a fetish for shrine maidens too? [17:08] <~SU_Tempest> [Sif] Damn. Just damn. *Can't stop smirking* [17:09] <+Jonah> You /too?/ [17:09] <+Jonah> High five Sif. [17:09] <~SU_Tempest> [Sif] Well there's some sexy ones and all but. Fucking religious personnel? [17:09] <~SU_Tempest> [Sif] That's askin' for trouble. [17:10] <~SU_Tempest> [Sif] Like. There's all that miko porn on the 'net, but I know it's just people cosplaying. [17:10] <~SU_Tempest> [Sif] It's literally illegal for real ones to do that. [17:11] <+Jonah> Weeeellllll. I'm a Paladin. If two pure people have a pure love than it's totally fine. [17:11] <+Jonah> Also I plan to win the Gods' blessing to woo the girl. [17:11] <+Jonah> And, secondly... [17:11] <~SU_Tempest> [Sif] It's not how it works, you know that? [17:12] <+Jonah> Well, like you said. I am cuh-ray-zee. [17:12] <+Jonah> And am totally happy with my delusions of grandeur. [17:12] <~SU_Tempest> [Sif] Crazy okay, but pervert is probably a bit much. [17:12] <~SU_Tempest> [Sif] That'll get you killed. [17:12] <+Jonah> Ehh, wouldn't be the second time. [17:13] <+Jonah> And, besides - it's only illegal if you get caught. And stick it in. [17:13] <~SU_Tempest> [Sif] Good grief. *Shakes his head, still smirking.* [17:14] <+Jonah> What can I say? I'm the asskicker your ass could kick like. [17:14] <+Jonah> But, alas, angels only come once.
