[12:35] <&Hebizuka> *As usual the startgame storyline can be found on the wiki. Now to the questions.* [12:35] <&Hebizuka> Question 1: Which one of those styles do you like the most? [12:35] <&Hebizuka> A) The action hero [12:35] <&Hebizuka> B) The laidback sniper [12:35] <&Hebizuka> C) The rogue cop [12:35] <&Hebizuka> D) The mercenary [12:35] <&Hebizuka> E) The survivalist [12:35] <&Hebizuka> F) The magnificent bastard [12:35] <&Hebizuka> G) The iron fist authority figure [12:35] <&Hebizuka> H) The free-spirited avenger [12:35] <&Hebizuka> I) The psycho [12:36] * Thidran listens to the first question with a disgusted expression. "So my trip to hell is going to start with a gameshow...and a personality test to boot. Okay then. I choose the avenger." He manages by way of reply. [12:37] <&Hebizuka> Whaddya know? It's not fire and brimstone everywhere. H it is then? [12:37] <Thidran> H it is. [12:40] <&Hebizuka> Question 2: If you could change your lifestyle and stick forever to it, what would you pick? [12:40] <&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 [12:40] <&Hebizuka> B) Moving to the jungles in Africa and becoming the friend of gorillas and chimpanzees [12:40] <&Hebizuka> C) Getting a flamboyant house near a French beach and enjoy the beach view every day of the year [12:40] <&Hebizuka> D) Become a Greenpeace member and endlessly fight for nature's sake (even though she asked you for nothing) [12:40] <&Hebizuka> E) Become the owner of your very own brand of beer, and have it known as the "most hardcore beer" in the world [12:40] <&Hebizuka> F) Move to Japan and become the owner of a hot springs bath [12:41] * Thidran scrunches up his face even tighter. "The hell kind of question is this? I guess I'll go with the least offensive choice. E. Ideally, I'd pick none of them." [12:41] <&Hebizuka> Sensible enough. [12:42] <&Hebizuka> Question 3: The fate of a popular teen idol derided by critics for terrible singing, is in your hands. You... [12:42] <&Hebizuka> A) Think he should be respected as a role model for the future generations [12:42] <&Hebizuka> B) Hang him [12:42] <&Hebizuka> C) Hang and shoot him [12:42] <&Hebizuka> D) Subject him to waterboarding [12:42] <&Hebizuka> E) Force him to wear nothing but a collar, walk on all fours and bark like a dog while following you around [12:43] * Thidran smirks at the options. "Someone doesn't like pop singers. Neither do I though, so I can't blame you. E again. Might as well get some use out of the little shit." [12:44] <&Hebizuka> Question 4: You have received 500 dollars to spend in any store of your area. You spend it on… [12:44] <&Hebizuka> A) Groceries for the next two months [12:44] <&Hebizuka> B) Spend it on designer clothes and finally look wear as rich and secure as you always wished to be [12:44] <&Hebizuka> C) That latest-generation workout machine to spend two-thirds of your time training on [12:44] <&Hebizuka> D) Wal-Mart ammunition and an extra rifle for plinking in your backyard [12:44] <&Hebizuka> E) That small store with the hard rock music and the very cool selection of biker accessories [12:44] <&Hebizuka> F) The perfect cosplay outfit of your favorite anime character [12:44] <&Hebizuka> G) Food, supplies, shotgun ammunition, a guide on how to survive the zombie apocalypse, and anxiolytics to overcome paranoia [12:46] * Thidran chuckles at that. "This one's easy. A. A proper food supply can last you quite a long time." He crosses his arms. "I guess hell takes all forms, from minor irritation to ultimate suffering...guess you wanna acclimate me first." [12:48] <&Hebizuka> Question 5: If you could choose only song genre to listen to for those long trips on the highway, it would be... [12:48] <&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 [12:48] <&Hebizuka> B) Upbeat, adrenaline-pumping electro house music, because every night is "Outrun cops" night [12:48] <&Hebizuka> C) Fast-paced 1980's hard rock, because every road is like your own personal race track [12:48] <&Hebizuka> D) Old-school 1990's hip-hop, because only true street rats - such as you - know how to keep it real [12:48] <&Hebizuka> E) Classical music, particularly dramatic pieces (Overture 1818, the Soviet national anthem), because these are the only true sounds for you [12:48] <&Hebizuka> F) Marijuana reggae and other kinds of feel-good music, because you don't have to put up with road rage [12:48] <&Hebizuka> G) Chicago house music or some other form of underground club music, because you cultivate an underground attitude [12:48] <&Hebizuka> H) Something nobody has heard of, because you are a hipster [12:49] * Thidran lets out a soft growl. "Guess it'll be H, since there's no option for listening to your own breathing and heartrate churn while you work hard. Better to me than any music." [12:50] <&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? [12:50] <&Hebizuka> A) Honorably, driven by a code of conduct [12:50] <&Hebizuka> B) Like a boss, awesomely, with style [12:50] <&Hebizuka> C) Righteously, with gallantry [12:50] <&Hebizuka> D) Soldierly, patriotically [12:50] <&Hebizuka> E) Dutifully, selflessly, as a second-nature [12:50] <&Hebizuka> F) Affectionately, compassionately [12:52] * Thidran takes a full minute before even starts to speak, his brows furrowing as he attempts to understand the question. "Well, it's definitely not A or B....sure not a soldier...definitely not righteous...fuckit, I'll go for E." He mutters, before calling out, "Alright, E it is!" [12:54] <&Hebizuka> Question 7: You are stranded on an island, and you can have only one of the following. You pick… [12:54] <&Hebizuka> A) Your loved one [12:54] <&Hebizuka> B) A satellite phone [12:54] <&Hebizuka> C) A survival knife [12:54] <&Hebizuka> D) A guide about exotic plants [12:54] <&Hebizuka> E) A solar-powered radio with a selection of reggae music [12:54] <&Hebizuka> F) Enough fuel to transform the island into a gigantic bonfire [12:55] * Thidran shrugs his shoulders. "At least this one actually has some options. I'd pick D, although C's definitely close. I'd prefer to know what's local." [12:57] <&Hebizuka> Question 8: We are in the 17th century, and you're well-known among pirates and corsairs for… [12:57] <&Hebizuka> A) Your bone-chilling smile of gold and silver [12:57] <&Hebizuka> B) Your large hands covered in bracelets (which are very good at choking) [12:57] <&Hebizuka> C) Your two flintlock pistols, symbol of a very early lineage of cowboys and dual-wielding psychos [12:57] <&Hebizuka> D) Your galleon called "The Island Crusher" [12:57] <&Hebizuka> E) Your enormous cannon you nicknamed "Mama" [12:57] <&Hebizuka> F) Your immense wealth and fleet of successful merchant ships [12:59] * Thidran smiles faintly at that question. "Wish I had a coin about now. I'd flip it." He thinks on it for a moment, before continuing. "I'd pick A, although I'd probably pick B if there was a second option. Surprisingly close for a change." [12:59] <&Hebizuka> B it is? [13:00] * Thidran shakes his head. "Hrm. Got a coin over there? If so, flip it for me. If it lands on heads, it's A. If not, it's B. How about that one?" [13:00] <&Hebizuka> Tails [13:00] <Thidran> B it is. [13:01] <&Hebizuka> Question 9: Which of those vehicles reflect best your tastes? [13:01] <&Hebizuka> A) The expensive, high-performance sports car [13:01] <&Hebizuka> B) The ultra comfortable luxury sedan [13:01] <&Hebizuka> C) The family-oriented minivan with 7 seats [13:01] <&Hebizuka> D) The ultra-powerful, ultra-manuverable sports bike [13:01] <&Hebizuka> E) The riced-up import car with a paintjob customized according to your tastes [13:01] <&Hebizuka> F) The ambulance (or another form of rescue vehicle) [13:01] <&Hebizuka> G) The limousine with personal chauffeur [13:02] * Thidran frowns at the options. "Shame there isn't an option for a hearse...those are fucking awesome. Closest choice would have to be the ambulance. Those are handy." [13:02] * Thidran then thumps himself. "I mean, I choose F!" [13:03] <&Hebizuka> It's alright. [13:05] <&Hebizuka> Erm. Hmmm... [13:05] <&Hebizuka> What next... [13:05] <&Hebizuka> Oh. [13:05] <&Hebizuka> Question 10: It's your birthday and you received a mystery gift. You open it and find... [13:05] <&Hebizuka> A) An unexpected but actually very useful and practical item which you end up using every day [13:05] <&Hebizuka> B) Something that happens to be an item you've always wanted - and you suspect the senders knew exactly what you wanted [13:05] <&Hebizuka> C) A basket full of food and comfortable clothes of your size [13:05] <&Hebizuka> D) Appropriate clothes for a cosplay or a disguise of your favorite fictional character [13:05] <&Hebizuka> E) A wad of cash (or equivalent currency) [13:05] <&Hebizuka> F) The war relics of that ancestor in your family who fought during a war generations ago [13:06] * Thidran stands and starts pacing as the questions continue. "Ugh, haven't been given one of those in a long time. This one, almost all of it is handy, but I'd pick B. Surprises are fun sometimes." [13:07] <&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… [13:07] <&Hebizuka> A) Go to this party; might be some hot chicks/boys to check out [13:07] <&Hebizuka> B) Go to this party and buy everyone drinks; to be the king/queen of the night! [13:07] <&Hebizuka> C) Tell them to get lost; you never go to parties anyway [13:07] <&Hebizuka> D) Don't answer and lock yourself up at home; the computer is your friend [13:07] <&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 [13:07] <&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! [13:08] * Thidran scoffs at that. "They should know better. C. Always C. They need my help, it's cool, but I'm happy staying at home and working out in one form or another." [13:10] <&Hebizuka> *The final question is meta.* [13:11] <&Hebizuka> Question 12: Which mission set do you want to attempt? [13:11] <&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. [13:11] <&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. [13:11] <&Hebizuka> C) Proxy missions - Recommended for veteran players. Join a military squad and climb the ranks. Objective: Defeat a powerful youkai activist group at all costs... and against all odds. [13:11] <&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. [13:12] * Thidran shrugs his shoulders. "Well, I'm new in this hellhole, so I might as well stick with either A or D. Hrm....might as well flip a coin again. If heads, we go to A. If tails, D." [13:14] <&Hebizuka> And tails again. [13:14] <&Hebizuka> I guess you're going Contracts. [13:14] <Thidran> D it is! [13:15] <&Hebizuka> All right. [13:15] <&Hebizuka> I'm sending an engineer with your equipment and your test results... [13:16] * Thidran slows down and faces towards the source of the sound. "Works for me!" [13:17] <~SU_Tempest> *Not 10 seconds later, an engineer barges in the room through one of the doors, pushing a cart full of boxes.* [13:18] <~SU_Tempest> [Engie] Are you the one named Thidran Brisbane? [13:18] * Thidran nods at the engineer, and gives him an awkward bow. "The one and only! What's the results?" [13:19] <~SU_Tempest> *He hands you a letter, ignoring the fact you're bowing to him while naked. The letter can be read here: http://pastebin.com/6D0Eg4Je * [13:19] <~SU_Tempest> [Engie] And as for your stuff, well... Seven boxes, their contents all yours. [13:21] * Thidran accepts the letter, and starts reading it, another frown forming on his face. "So I'm actually getting stuff for taking this quiz? Better than I expected!" He grins widely at that. "I was expecting to have to walk out of here without anything. This place is alot more civilized than I expected." He chuckles at that. "Got one question though...since you've apparently been around longer, what ... [13:21] <Thidran> ... do you think of this place?" [13:22] <~SU_Tempest> [Engie] Er, well. My particular job isn't the most entertaining. I lift heavy weights, I oversee production of stuff, and I usually work in a factory, so... [13:22] <~SU_Tempest> [Engie] This place ain't so bad when you work out something to do, I guess. [13:23] * Thidran rubs his chin, completely ignoring that he's still naked. "Fair enough I guess...probably a better job than I've had. Welp! Guess we'll need to go over what's in these boxes eh?" With that, he goes over to one of the boxes, opens it up, and starts carefully pulling out its' contents... [13:25] <~SU_Tempest> *The engineer pays it no mind, he seems used to it. He bids goodbye, then leaves you with your crates.* [13:25] <&Hebizuka> *When you're ready to start, we'll go through the crates in sequence. The first contains load-bearing gear which I assume is taken automatically; as it is your way to carry inventory. The rest, however, is up to you; tell me what you'll want to take.* [13:25] <&Hebizuka> =Load-bearing gear= [13:25] <&Hebizuka> [LBE] (Backpack) Field pack: Capacity 40 units [13:25] <&Hebizuka> [LBE] (Utility belt) Default belt: Capacity 0 units + Key items (Can carry key items) [13:26] * Thidran looks at the gear, then puts on the backpack and utility belt. "Okay...that's a good start." With that, he opens up the next box, and pores over what's within. [13:26] <Thidran> (Or "equips" them as it were.) [13:27] <&Hebizuka> =Clothing/Armor= [13:27] <&Hebizuka> [Clothing] Top - T-Shirt (Upper body, Shoulders) - AC Light - Blunt-resistant - Weight: 3 - [Condition: Worn] [13:27] <&Hebizuka> [Clothing] Bottom - Jeans (Lower body, Legs, Crotch) - AC Light - Blunt-resistant - Weight: 3 - [Condition: Worn] [13:27] <&Hebizuka> [Clothing] Footwear - Regular shoes - AC Light - Blunt-resistant, Sharp-resistant - Weight: 5 - [Condition: Good] [13:27] <&Hebizuka> [Clothing] Headgear - Twaron helmet - AC Kevlar-2 - Blunt-PROOF, Sharp-PROOF, Piercing-resistant - Ballistic protective, fire-retardant - Weight: 9 - [Condition: Good] [13:27] <&Hebizuka> [Clothing] Body addon - Twaron vest (Upper body) - AC Kevlar-2 - Blunt-PROOF, Sharp-resistant, Piercing-resistant - Fire-retardant - Weight: 9 - [Condition: Brand new] [13:30] * Thidran hums to himself as pats each of the pieces, before removing the backpack and utility belt long enough to properly put on the t-shirt, jeans, shoes, and vest. He puts the backpack and utility belt back on over that, dons the helmet, and looks into the next crate. [13:33] <&Hebizuka> =Weapons= [13:33] <&Hebizuka> [Weapon] Class 3 - Smith & Wesson 4006 pistol | .40 S&W - Semi-auto | No accessory | 4006 11-round mag | Weight: 3 - [10+1/11, 11x HP] - Cond: Good / Clns: Clean [13:33] <&Hebizuka> [Weapon] Handgear: Sap gloves.

Weight: 1/item [13:35] * Thidran hums as he looks over the unfamiliar weapons, before he starts to put them on his person, ready to use for later. "These gloves'll be quite useful..." [13:37] <&Hebizuka> *Equip everything?* [13:37] * Thidran equips everything. [13:38] <&Hebizuka> *All done.* [13:42] <&Hebizuka> =Ammunition= [13:42] <&Hebizuka> [Weapon accessory] Magazine: S&W 4006 11-round magazine.

Size tier: Tiny ; Weight: 0.25+0.22 (0.47) - [11/11, 11x HP] [13:46] * Thidran takes a few minutes to puzzle over the ammunition, carefully removing one of the bullets, and comparing it to the pistol. "So...this is...a gun. Never used one before." He frowns at that, before carefully adding the bullet back to the magazine, and making sure the pistol's loaded with one before putting the other up. "I know enough that the pointy end should be away from me when firing, so I ... [13:46] <Thidran> ... guess it'll be good enough." [13:47] <&Hebizuka> *Your handgun was indeed loaded.* [13:48] <&Hebizuka> *Spare the magazines in your bag?* [13:48] * Thidran puts both magazines in his backpack for later. [13:49] <&Hebizuka> [Weight] (Pack/Main inventory) 0.94/40 [13:51] <&Hebizuka> =Food= [13:51] <&Hebizuka> [Food] Beverage - Bottle of brandy. 4d7 - Inebriation +9d6 per portion [13:51] <&Hebizuka> [Food] Beverage - Bottle of brandy. 4d7 - Inebriation +9d6 per portion [13:51] <&Hebizuka> [Food] Fast-food - Box of nuggets (6). 6d4 [13:51] <&Hebizuka> [Food] Fast-food - Box of nuggets (6). 6d4 [13:52] * Thidran views the contents, before adding it to the pack.

"Holy smokes, I could set up a field hospital with this stuff!" He grins widely, as he carefully packs the contents up. "Definitely going to use all of this." [13:57] <&Hebizuka> Hopefully you won't need ALL of it too soon. [13:57] <Thidran> That, I can agree with. [13:59] <&Hebizuka> [Weight] (Pack/Main inventory) 8.54/40 [13:59] <&Hebizuka> *And for the last crate...* [13:59] <&Hebizuka> =Other= [13:59] <&Hebizuka> [Valuable] Metal - Gold ring - Value 40-140 P$ (1d101 +39) - Weight: 0.1 [13:59] <&Hebizuka> [Valuable] Metal - Gold ring - Value 40-140 P$ (1d101 +39) - Weight: 0.1 [13:59] <&Hebizuka> [Valuable] Metal - Gold ring - Value 40-140 P$ (1d101 +39) - Weight: 0.1 [14:01] * Thidran looks at the rings, before having a laugh. "Oh, this'll be good." he puts the rings up for the moment, shaking his head in amusement." If these gloves fall apart, can probably use them as a set of brass knuckles. Shame they don't have a sharp bit in them though for that extra sting..." [14:01] <&Hebizuka> *They would make for poor brass knuckles... better save them for their worth.* [14:03] <&Hebizuka> *Place in pack?* [14:03] * Thidran puts the rings up. "So let's see, I'm outfited, and have some stuff in the pack." [14:05] <&Hebizuka> *Welcome to the Mazes, Thidran. When you're ready to begin your journey, type !mrooms3 then pick a door.* [14:06] <Thidran> !mrooms3 [14:06] <&Hebizuka> [ Thidran ] Left door: 5785 - Front door: 1002 - Right door: 1442 - Roomstyle: 437 - Enemy strength: 5 /6 [14:06] * Thidran looks at the availible doors, then plays a game of eenie meenie money mo to determine the start. He goes for the right door, then tentatively opens it up. [14:07] <&Hebizuka> *From where you are you can't see what's in the next room. Only way is to positively pass through and get in the next room. Go right?* [14:07] * Thidran frowns as he thinks on it. "Fuckit." He then walks through the door. (Yes.) [14:08] <&Hebizuka> *A warehouse room, with containers, large crates, and so on; most of which empty. There is a weapon in one of them, though...* [14:09] * Thidran hums. "Surprising...expected to have to fight right at the start with what I've been given." With that, he searches through the crates, and examines the resulting weapon. [14:12] <&Hebizuka> [Weapon] Class 2 - Taurus MT-40 submachine gun | .40 S&W - Semi/Full | No accessory | MT-40 30-round mag, +1 | Weight: 5 - [22+1/23, 23x FMJ] - Cond: Worn / Clns: Seized up [14:13] * Thidran looks at the weapon, and tilts his head in confusion. "Well, might as well gather what I can for now. Whenever I'm low on room, I can always scrap it down the line. Looks kind of grimy though..." He frowns at that, before stowing it away in his backpack. [14:15] <&Hebizuka> *MT-40 spared.* [14:15] <&Hebizuka> [Weight] (Pack/Main inventory) 13.84/40 [14:17] * Thidran takes another look around the warehouse, before searching for another exit. [14:17] <Thidran> !mrooms3 [14:17] <&Hebizuka> [ Thidran ] Left door: 6372 - Front door: 233 - Right door: 6950 - Roomstyle: 544 - Enemy strength: 5 /6 [14:18] * Thidran hums as he comes across more doors, learning from the first time that there's no point in looking at it, he picks the door in front, grips his bat tightly in his right hand, and walks through... [14:20] <&Hebizuka> *You barge inside an office. Four desk, each one with a computer, plus office clutter. There's a note next to one of them, as well as some sort of accessory.* [14:20] * Thidran looks around, then cautiously goes to read the note first. [14:23] <&Hebizuka> [Note] Here, we've reset your password after last week's incident. Your new information is: Login: RamosPC4 - Password: Wah2Gawo [14:24] * Thidran hums at that, before he has a seat at the nearest computer. "Let's see what this poor bastard has had to do..." With that, he slowly follows the prompts on the computer, and employs hunt and peck to type out the login information. [14:25] <&Hebizuka> *You wake the PC from idle, and successfully login onto the fourth computer in the office. You now have access to the desktop; you see two icons - "Files" folder, and "MazeNet".* [14:26] * Thidran hums. "MazeNet? The fuck is that?" He thinks on that for a bit, before going to the files folder first. [14:28] <&Hebizuka> *You find nothing in the folder, except for a single text file named "Admin note.txt"* [14:28] * Thidran chuckles at that, before going straight to opening the text file. [14:29] <&Hebizuka> [Text file] "Look, I know last week's incident has been embarrassing for everyone, but I went the safe side and had to delete everything. Our boss still wants to figure out who had the brilliant idea of dumping youkai porn on everybody's workspaces. I'm sorry if that deleted any ongoing work, but it's that or I'm out of a job. -Sysadmin" [14:32] * Thidran laughs as he hears this poor bastard's misfortune, but then frowns at an unfamiliar word. "What are youkai?" He mutters to himself. He looks around, and upon spying plenty of office supplies, collects some pencils and paper to write down some important notes. "Find out about Youkai." With that, he then backs out of the text file, and tries out MazeNet, hoping that it's what he thinks it is. [14:33] <&Hebizuka> *You find pencils, but no pen.* [14:34] <&Hebizuka> *You open what seems to be an internet navigator, or what they looked like back when the latest OS was Windows 95.* [14:34] <&Hebizuka> *The homepage appears to be called MazeNet Search, and is the local search engine.* [14:35] * Thidran looks at the search engine, then types in "What are Youkai?" before hitting enter. [14:35] <&Hebizuka> *Search suggests a website called InfoBase, which has an article on youkai.* [14:36] * Thidran clicks on the site then. [14:38] <&Hebizuka> [InfoBase] Youkai is a broad term which refers to a specific kind of creatures. Several subspecies, such as kappa, tengu, kitsune, etc. exist and all have distinctive features, but all are youkai. As the second most common species in the Mazes, next to humans, they are an important aspect of today's world. *Read more?* [14:39] * Thidran thinks on it, his tongue sticking out as he writes these tidbits down. "kappa...tengu...kitsune...might meet up with them." He copies the information down, before continuing to read. [14:42] <&Hebizuka> [InfoBase] Youkai are estimated to have started existing in the Mazes well over two thousand years ago, during Beta Era 5, when the first generations of youkai species settled in the Mazes; it is unclear why the human-youkai conflict, but most people believe it stemming from the humans being factually in the Mazes since longer, though the actual reasons may simply be racial in nature. [14:44] <&Hebizuka> [InfoBase] It has been estimated that over 40 species of youkai exist, some with their own subspecies or variations. Two distinct groups exist: "Wicked youkai", and "Non-wicked youkai", the common features of the former group is their more violent and feral tendencies, being closer to animals, while the non-wicked ones are capable of more rational thought and are more human-like in behavior. [14:44] <&Hebizuka> *The article ends there, but you can request Search for more information.* [14:46] * Thidran frowns at that. "Racism on both ends, potential war between both groups. Got it. Two groups of Youkai, wicked and non wicked. Wicked are like feral dogs. Non wicked are more like us. Fair enough." He jots those bits down, then nods. "Hum. Don't seem to be on a timer..." He thinks on it, before opening up the adminnote.txt once more, and adding to it. "P.S: Request that your sysadmin change ... [14:46] <Thidran> ... your password again. Thanks for letting me look for information though. ~Contestant." Afterwards, he does a search for "wicked youkai". "At least I should know an example of one before I go..." [14:48] <&Hebizuka> [InfoBase] A "Wicked youkai" is a term which refers to the more feral, animalistic and violent species of youkai which exist in the Mazes. Wicked youkai compose roughly half of the youkai species in the Mazes. Most are non-sapient beings, and rare are those capable of speech. *Read more?* [14:50] * Thidran jots those tidbits down, feeling his hand sting from the unfamiliar feeling. "Been a long time since I've had to do this bit...last time was when I was a kid writing on the damn chalkboard...I was always such a bastard..." He chuckles ruefully to himself as he continues reading. [14:50] <&Hebizuka> [InfoBase] Species listed as wicked: Amanojaku, Amanozako, Bakeneko (both feral and humanoid forms), Basan, Binbougami, Datsue-ba, Enenra, Fuujin, Goryou, Hainu, Hone-onna, Inugami, Itsumaden, Kamaitachi, Kanedama, Komainu, Komatora, Kubikajiri, Kyonshi, Mizuchi, Raiju, Taimatsumaru, Tsuchinoko, Ushi-oni. [14:52] * Thidran adds a second page, and lists the entirety of those species in under the heading "Wicked Youkai". He nods to himself, then pats the computer. "Alright, seems fair enough. I don't wanna take too long because I don't know what I'll end up doing in the process. If I end up in this situation again, I think I'll do more searching." With that, he carefully closes down the browser, puts away the ... [14:52] <Thidran> ... pencil and paper, and looks around the rest of the office. Eventually he spies the accessory, and goes to pick it up... [14:53] <&Hebizuka> [Weapon accessory] Weapon light: Inforce APL. Full battery life: 250 turns. Soft light. - [Battery: 17%] [14:54] * Thidran scratches his head as he looks at what appears to be a mini flashlight. "Maybe if it's dark I'll get some use out of it?" With that, he puts it in his backpack to resume his search. [14:55] <&Hebizuka> [Weight] (Pack/main inv) 14.84/40 [14:56] * Thidran eventually nods to himself as he looks throughout the room. "Well, while I'd love to hang around here longer, I don't really have alot of food for that. And so..." He goes towards the exits once more. [14:56] <Thidran> !mrooms3 [14:56] <&Hebizuka> [ Thidran ] Left door: 6519 - Front door: 6279 - Right door: 5215 - Roomstyle: 357 - Enemy strength: 2 /6 [14:56] * Thidran looks at the options, then randomly picks the door on the left this time, walking through while gripping the baseball bat with confidence. [14:58] <&Hebizuka> *You barge inside a classroom. Coincidentally someone wrote, in huge letters, "WARNING: EVIL TEACHER" on the chalkboard. There's no-one around, though. All you see around that might be of use is food left on the teacher's desk.* [14:59] * Thidran smiles at the chalkboard. "Ahh, youth. Done that before." With that, he goes to look at the teacher's desk to see if there's anything of use. [15:02] <&Hebizuka> [Food] Dessert - Brownie. 1d24 [15:02] * Thidran pockets the Dessert for later, takes another fond look around the classroom, then heads for the exits. "Happier times then..." [15:03] <Thidran> !mrooms3 [15:03] <&Hebizuka> [ Thidran ] Left door: 7381 - Front door: 498 - Right door: 1011 - Roomstyle: 113 - Enemy strength: 2 /6 [15:03] <&Hebizuka> [Weight] (Pack/main inv) 15.84/40 [15:04] * Thidran hums upon being greeted with the latest set of doors, then readies his bat once more, and starts walking through. "Makes me a bit antsy how quiet this place is..." [15:06] <Thidran> (Apologies, I choose the front door.) [15:06] <&Hebizuka> (It's okay, just don't forget. :P) [15:07] <&Hebizuka> *A laundry room, of all things. There are a few washing machines, all empty. You spot clothing abandoned in the corner, as well as a few items, which seem out of place in a laundry room.* [15:08] * Thidran hums at that, and warily looks around. "Still noone? I'm surprised. Hell's alot emptier than I expected it to be..." He mutters to himself, before going towards the clothing to see what's availible. [15:09] <&Hebizuka> *Sadly not much of use.* [15:09] <&Hebizuka> [Clothing] Headgear - Bandana - AC Light - Blunt-resistant - Weight: 1 - [Cond: Damaged] [15:10] * Thidran thinks on it, before leaving the Bandana. "Even I know that it won't fetch for much anywhere." With that, he looks towards the rest of the room, and methodically searches through things before coming onto the weirder items. [15:11] <&Hebizuka> *A wooden box which says "M7A3" on it, and which contains this:* [15:11] <&Hebizuka> [Weapon] Class 4 - M7A3 tear gas grenade. FT+2 and +7% Pain/turn for 3 turns. CRITFAIL affects user, FAIL nulls effect, CRITWIN stuns target 1 turn. Weight: 3/item [15:13] * Thidran carefully withdraws the grenade from the box, and straps that onto his clothing. "Okay I guess. Dunno what M7A3 means, but I'm sure it can't hurt to have." With that, he makes certain that it isn't going anywhere, before searching for the exits once more. [15:13] <Thidran> !mrooms3 [15:13] <&Hebizuka> [ Thidran ] Left door: 7059 - Front door: 6205 - Right door: 4957 - Roomstyle: 25 - Enemy strength: 3 /6 [15:15] <&Hebizuka> *Which way?* [15:15] * Thidran thinks on it, before taking the door to the right, trusting in himself to hopefully not run into anything hostile. [15:16] <&Hebizuka> *A regular, featureless room. This room has nothing; no furniture, no distinctive feature. Perhaps most out of place is the creature lurking in this room. A caribou of all things. It is male; it has antlers. And it doesn't look very peaceful.* [15:18] * Thidran looks at it. "The fuck is that?" He thinks for a moment, muttering to himself, before slowly sauntering towards the right, warily circling the beast with his baseball bat fielded. "I dunno how to use a gun, but I do know bats. If the fucker comes close, He's going to regret it." [15:20] <&Hebizuka> *The cervid seems distressed, almost scared to be where it is, as if it appeared out of nowhere. It's wary of you as well.* [15:21] * Thidran keeps circling around the creature, not making any further aggressive moves as his eyes wander towards where the exits might be. [15:22] <&Hebizuka> *The cervid is torn by the good old fight-or-flight response, but decides that it wants to fight.* [15:23] <&Hebizuka> *Turn 1. What will you do?* [15:24] * Thidran looks at the creature, and readies his bat with both hands, waiting patiently for it to get close before he tries a rough swing to its' side, and using the momentum to dodge to the right. [15:25] <&Hebizuka> *The cervid will try to defend itself with its antlers, going to try and strike you with them.* [15:25] <&Hebizuka> *Order: You, Caribou.* [15:26] <&Hebizuka> *Your turn. You're much faster to act, so you may roll now.* [15:27] <Thidran> @roll 1#2d6 [15:27] <MazeBot> Thidran: 11 [15:28] <&Hebizuka> *You deliver a solid hit to the caribou's side, slugging its abdomen with all your might. The caribou yelps in pain; looks like that did some damage indeed.* [15:29] <&Hebizuka> *Caribou's turn...* [15:29] <&Hebizuka> @bodyaim [15:29] <MazeBot> [UPPER BODY] Upper body (Stomach, guts, lower back) [15:29] <&Hebizuka> @roll 2d6 [15:29] <MazeBot> Hebizuka: 7 [15:30] <&Hebizuka> *You're struck in the stomach by a raging antler. That did not feel pleasant either. You're in pain, and you have the feeling you just narrowly avoided getting your ribs broken.* [15:31] <&Hebizuka> *End of Turn 1. You're hurt, beware.* [15:31] <&Hebizuka> *Turn 2. What is your next move?* [15:32] * Thidran grunts in pain from the rough attack, realizing this creature's alot faster than he expected. He lets out a growl of rage after previously being cautious, He performs a quick thrust with the end of the bat towards the body, before rapidly swinging his bat towards the creature's head, hoping to ward him off. [15:33] <&Hebizuka> *Just one hit?* [15:33] <Thidran> (Two. One towards the body, then a followup towards the head.) [15:34] <&Hebizuka> *You'll try to hit it twice with your bat, towards the head, while your cervid opponent attempts to ram you again with its antlers...* [15:34] <&Hebizuka> *Order: You, Caribou.* [15:34] <&Hebizuka> *Again you're the fastest; your turn, you may roll now.* [15:35] <Thidran> @roll 2#2d6 [15:35] <MazeBot> Thidran: 9;11 [15:35] <&Hebizuka> *Despite the head being harder to hit, you strike it twice, successfully!* [15:36] <&Hebizuka> *That's not nearly enough for a kill just yet, but you must've given the persistent animal a solid concussion...* [15:36] <&Hebizuka> *Caribou's turn...* [15:36] <&Hebizuka> @bodyaim [15:36] <MazeBot> [LOWER BODY] Lower body (Hips, pelvis, buttocks) [15:36] <&Hebizuka> @roll 2d6 [15:36] <MazeBot> Hebizuka: 6 [15:37] <&Hebizuka> *The cervid narrowly misses stabbing your hips with its antlers. Thankfully.* [15:37] <&Hebizuka> *Turn 2. The animal doesn't look in very good shape. Looks like it's about to give out.* [15:38] <&Hebizuka> *Turn 3. What will you do?* [15:38] * Thidran lets out a battlecry after the desperate dodge, and continues his wild swings, savagely continuing to aim for the creature's head. "You started this you little bastard..." He snarls out. [15:40] <Thidran> (Two more hits to the head.) [15:40] <&Hebizuka> *The panicked quadruped doesn't feel as ballsy as before; the sight of your bat is enough to make it want to flee.* [15:40] <&Hebizuka> *Which it tries instead of fighting more.* [15:40] <&Hebizuka> *Order: Caribou, You.* [15:41] <&Hebizuka> *The caribou is not fast enough to flee, and you are given a free shot!* [15:41] <&Hebizuka> *Your turn. You may roll now.* [15:41] <Thidran> @roll 2#2d6 [15:41] <MazeBot> Thidran: 10;4 [15:42] <&Hebizuka> *Your first hit connects, but you miss on the second, swishing the air instead.* [15:42] <&Hebizuka> *But it doesn't matter, that first hit was enough; the caribou freezes in place under the hit, before the legs give out and lose their strength. The animal crumbles on the floor; you literally beat it to death.* [15:43] <&Hebizuka> Thidran [Baseball bat] Caribou /H\ [15:43] <&Hebizuka> *End of fight! (3 turns)* [15:43] <&Hebizuka> *The pain is slowly starting to subside.* [15:44] * Thidran pants from the sudden effort, and has a seat next to the recently departed Caribou. "Sorry it came to this, but you shouldn'tve tried attacking me." He then gingerly rubs his belly, opting to rest for a bit until he doesn't feel like he's going to hurl. [15:45] <&Hebizuka> *Your vest saved you from broken ribs, though you were lucky.* [15:49] <&Hebizuka> *Using the Rest ability requires you rolling a 1d2. 1: Failure, 2: Success.* [15:49] <Thidran> @roll 1#1d2 [15:49] <MazeBot> Thidran: 2 [15:50] <&Hebizuka> *You have no problem lying down and spending some time resting. You fall asleep for ten turns...* [15:50] <&Hebizuka> *You wake up, feeling better - the area where you were struck is still sensible to the touch, but pain has at least subsided somewhat.* [15:52] * Thidran wakes up with a start, then looks around. "Mmm...must've dozed. Bad idea to get in the habit of that. Fighting always did take it out of me though." He mutters to himself, then looks at the beast. "A bit of a waste, but alas, I can't exactly carry you anywhere." He slowly gets up, and bows to the fallen caribou, before heading for the exits. [15:52] <Thidran> !mrooms3 [15:52] <&Hebizuka> [ Thidran ] Left door: 5976 - Front door: 3749 - Right door: 5506 - Roomstyle: 201 - Enemy strength: 2 /6 [15:53] * Thidran makes sure he has a good grip on the bat, before going through the left door, hoping that he's not up against something like that again. [15:53] <&Hebizuka> *A regular, featureless room again. Not much if at all here; just a mushroom in the corner, growing out of a small crevice.* [15:55] * Thidran heads for the mushroom in the corner. "You're one thing I'm not surprised at." He murmurs, collecting it for later and putting it in his pack. He then heads straight for the exits once more. [15:55] <&Hebizuka> [Mushroom] (Unidentified) Yellowish, Fruity smell - weight 0.1 [15:56] <Thidran> !mrooms3 [15:56] <&Hebizuka> [ Thidran ] Left door: 6170 - Front door: 2345 - Right door: 5211 - Roomstyle: 405 - Enemy strength: 5 /6 [15:56] <&Hebizuka> [Weight] (Pack/Main inv) 15.94/40 [15:57] * Thidran takes a moment to decide, before heading straight through the front door, bat at the ready in what's becoming a familiar routine for him now... [15:59] <&Hebizuka> *A library. Several shelves full of books about various things. There is nobody in sight, the librarian is not present, and you see only one door ahead (!mrooms1) here. Outside of books, you notice a shiny object on the librarian's desk...* [16:00] * Thidran takes a bit to look at the shiny object..."Hrm. I think I've been to one once as a kid. Not really my bag." [16:00] <&Hebizuka> [Valuable] Metal - Worthless iron ring - Value 1-3 P$ (1d3) - Weight: 0.1 [16:00] <&Hebizuka> *Not too satisfying.* [16:01] * Thidran picks it up anyways. "Might not be worth much, but someone might have use for it down the line." He collects it, then decides on an impulse to open a random book, to see what passes for entertainment in this weird world. [16:02] <&Hebizuka> [Weight] (Pack/Main inv) 16.04/40 [16:04] <&Hebizuka> *You pick a book at random. It's a random fantasy book about a warrior fighting demon dogs, the title is "Fangs and blades".* [16:05] * Thidran reads a little bit of it, looks at the cover, then returns it properly. "Well, time to move on." With that, he heads for the only remaining exit. [16:05] <Thidran> !mrooms1 [16:05] <&Hebizuka> [ Thidran ] Unique door: 6452 - Roomstyle: 229 - Enemy strength: 4 /6 [16:05] * Thidran promptly walks through the door, bat casually gripped. [16:09] <&Hebizuka> *You make your way inside an unique room. On the left, eight cells, not unlike prison cells, though they're all empty. On the right, a surprising contrast with the other side: a well kept, corporate office with a desk, a computer, a lot of job advertisement posters on the wall, and a well-dressed person working at the desk.* [16:09] <&Hebizuka> *You have entered what seems to be a hiring bureau.* [16:10] * Thidran is brought up short from that, and stands stiffly by the entrance. "Okay..." He looks around the room in complete confusion, before slowly walking towards another living person. "Umm...hello there!" [16:10] <~SU_Tempest> *The person, presumably the hiring employee, turns, and beams.* [16:10] <~SU_Tempest> [Hirer] Oh, hi! Welcome to the hiring bureau, how can I help you? [16:11] * Thidran awkwardly bows to the hirer. "Could you explain what you do here? I'm not exactly uhh...local." [16:11] <~SU_Tempest> [Hirer] Oh, so you're new huh. Well, aside from selling creatures that have either been put for sale, or decided to sell themselves, we handle job attribution in the Mazes. [16:12] * Thidran hums thoughtfully at that. "Alright, so basically, I come to here if I want to get a job right? I guess I could use one actually. I'm kind of lost." [16:12] <~SU_Tempest> [Hirer] Specifically, we are the middlemen between employers seeking people for a job, and contractors who need something to do. Right now though, we don't have any employer spots left, but we do need to have more contractors. Would you like to sign up as one? [16:13] * Thidran nods. "Yes, yes I do!" He snaps to attention, almost dropping his bat in the process. [16:13] <~SU_Tempest> [Hirer] Alright. Well, come closer. First I'm going to need your full name... [16:13] * Thidran steps closer, and leans forward. "My name is Thidran. Thidran Brisbane." [16:14] <~SU_Tempest> [Hirer] mmmhm... let me search your name in the database... ...Hm. Well. You're not in, so you may sign up. Just a moment... [16:16] * Thidran sweats a bit as he waits on the hirer. [16:17] <~SU_Tempest> [Hirer] Alright, you're in. You've got to know a few things about how it works here. Most contracts work on the principle of reputation. If you're unknown, you'll have shit jobs at first, but if word gets around you do a good job, you might interest better-paying employers, and so on. [16:17] <~SU_Tempest> [Hirer] It's a meritocracy, really. [16:18] <~SU_Tempest> [Hirer] Any questions? [16:18] * Thidran nods carefully at that. "That's fine by me. I'd prefer not to get in over my head at the start anyways. What's currently availible to me?" He responds, relaxing a bit now that he feels it isn't a trap. [16:23] <~SU_Tempest> [Hirer] Well, there's that one guy, an employer named Brian. He needs an armed escort to help him go home, and is waiting in some sort of storage area in the meantime; the path there is apparently dangerous and he's unarmed. You want? [16:24] * Thidran thinks on it. "Sure, I could help with that. He know how to use a gun?" [16:25] <~SU_Tempest> [Hirer] He does, but he apparently wants to let the contractor handle security. If that's not an issue... [16:25] * Thidran shrugs his shoulders. "Figured he'd like a way to defend himself if I failed. Yeah, I can handle it." [16:26] <~SU_Tempest> *The hirer points you to a circular machine beside the desk.* [16:27] * Thidran heads for the circular machine, and looks at it intently. "What's that?" [16:27] <~SU_Tempest> [Hirer] Okay then, step on this teleporter, you'll be transported immediately to where Brian is waiting for you. [16:28] * Thidran reluctantly stands onto the circular device. "Teleporter...got it." [16:28] <&Hebizuka> *Mission start.* [16:28] <&Hebizuka> *You're transported, as announced, in an old storage room. A scrawny-looking dude is standing there, with no equipment other than clothes on his back, waiting for you.* [16:29] * Thidran scrunches up his face at the sensation of teleporting. "Not...as bad as expected. Feels weird though." He shakes it off, before approaching the man. "You needed an escort?" [16:33] <~SU_Tempest> [Employer] Yeah, man. You the guy I asked for? Hehe. You're just like I imagined, a strong muscledude with a gun. My name's Brian. What's yours? [16:35] * Thidran bows to the man. "Thidran. Thidran Brisbane. What's in the way?" [16:35] <~SU_Tempest> [Brian] You'll never believe this. I left all my stuff at home, and I just didn't want to risk it, so I called for a guy. It happens all the time too. As for what's on the way, could be anything. A monster, nothing, toilet ninjas, who knows? You're here for that. [16:37] * Thidran shrugs his shoulders. "Alright." He reluctantly holsters his bat, and pulls out the smith and wesson. "I'll make sure they don't bring you to harm, in one form or another." [16:38] <~SU_Tempest> [Brian] Awesome. [16:38] <&Hebizuka> *For the duration of the mission, there is only one door ahead - so it'll be !mrooms1 until the end.* [16:38] * Thidran leads the way, heading straight for the nearest door. [16:38] <Thidran> !mrooms1 [16:38] <&Hebizuka> [ Thidran ] Unique door: 4244 - Roomstyle: 159 - Enemy strength: 1 /6 [16:39] * Thidran opens it, then turns his head to face the guy behind him. "Alright Brian, here's the plan, try to stay close to me when we're at the entrance, but stay out of the way if anything's around. Go straight for cover. Alright?" [16:39] <~SU_Tempest> [Brian] Sure, dude, you're the expert. [16:39] <~SU_Tempest> *You can't shake off the feeling he looks like a stoner.* [16:40] * Thidran lets out a sigh at that. "Alright, let's go then." With that, he heads forward, gun drawn and pointing straight ahead. [16:53] <&Hebizuka> *An empty workshop - formerly used as an engineer's workplace, but most of the machines and tools have been removed. There's a roll of blue paper on the floor, but no threat, so far.* [16:53] * Thidran looks around, then gingerly walks over towards the blue paper. [16:56] <&Hebizuka> [Crafting] (Blueprint) "Level 1, DynLeg, Dyneema leg pads + Ceramic plated jockstrap" [16:56] <&Hebizuka> *Looking closer, you also spot a weapon!* [16:58] * Thidran puts up the blueprint, a bit confused, then looks at the weapon. [17:01] <&Hebizuka> [Weapon] Class 5 Short: Pocket knife - Sharp/Piercing. Weight: 3 [17:03] * Thidran hums at that. "Has potential..." He murmurs, before quickly picking that up, and stuffing it into another holster, ready to draw if needed. [17:05] * Thidran chuckles. "Well, luckily it isn't fight right at the start Brian." He eventually says, before heading towards the next exit. [17:05] <Thidran> !mrooms1 [17:05] <&Hebizuka> [ Thidran ] Unique door: 2955 - Roomstyle: 551 - Enemy strength: 2 /6 [17:05] * Thidran waves Brian over, before heading through, keeping the pistol at the ready in case there's something hostile up ahead. [17:11] <&Hebizuka> *A regular, featureless room. A creature is lurking about in the room, and it's not a friendly one; it's a harpie!* [17:13] * Thidran readies his pistol, and aims it directly towards the harpie. "Alright you, going to let us past, or is it going to be a fight? Your choice." He states in a cold tone. [17:14] <&Hebizuka> *All you get is a hostile shriek. The harpie is now aware of your presence and is looking for a fight.* [17:14] <&Hebizuka> *Brian looks for cover.* [17:14] <&Hebizuka> @cover [17:14] <MazeBot> A sandbag nest. (Health: 64, LDV modifier: -3. AC Eqv: Kevlar-4. Pass-through threshold: 12+ dmg. Pain modifier: x0.50) [17:14] <&Hebizuka> *Do you want to take cover as well?* [17:18] * Thidran follows brian in with the cover, and then aims for the harpie. "Well, whatever you are, I don't speak shriek." With that, he promptly mashes the trigger repeatedly, sending a spray of five shots in quick succession towards the weird creature. [17:18] <&Hebizuka> *Roll a 2d6 to take cover first.* [17:18] <Thidran> @roll 2d6 [17:18] <MazeBot> Thidran: 3 [17:19] <&Hebizuka> *Both of you hide behind the sandbag, but your turn ends - you were too slow.* [17:20] <&Hebizuka> *The harpie speeds towards you, going to try and lash you with her talons! She's about to bypass your cover as well.* [17:20] <&Hebizuka> @bodyaim [17:20] <MazeBot> [EXTREMITY] Left hand [17:20] <&Hebizuka> @roll 2d6 [17:20] <MazeBot> Hebizuka: 9 [17:22] <&Hebizuka> *You feel something sharp rip your left hand; hopefully that wasn't your gun hand! Your sap gloves protected you somewhat; it doesn't hurt as much as you thought it would, and it doesn't seem you're bleeding. Lucky.* [17:22] <&Hebizuka> *End of Turn 1. The harpie is now on your side. Brian looks terrified.* [17:22] <&Hebizuka> *Turn 2. What is your next move?* [17:23] * Thidran snarls in rage as his heartrate skyrockets, at such close range, and being unfamiliar with the weapon at hand, he goes for broke, and promptly fires five shots at the harpy's head, hoping that at least one of them connects. [17:24] <&Hebizuka> *Brian won't act this turn, and the harpie will attempt striking you, with blunt force.* [17:24] <&Hebizuka> *Order: You, Harpie.* [17:24] <&Hebizuka> *You're faster than the avian creature; you may roll now.* [17:24] <Thidran> @roll 5#2d6 [17:24] <MazeBot> Thidran: 4;11;8;5;9 [17:24] <&Hebizuka> *Shots 1-5 (vs head): Miss, Hit, Hit, Miss, Hit.* [17:24] <&Hebizuka> *Total 3/5 hits.* [17:25] <&Hebizuka> *Three .40 caliber hollow-points in the skull! That has got to hurt, right?* [17:26] <&Hebizuka> *It hurts so bad, the exit wound is pretty much the back of the harpie's head being blown open like an over-ripe fruit.* [17:27] <&Hebizuka> Thidran [S&W 4006] Harpie /H\ [B] [17:27] <&Hebizuka> *You showed the meaning of "Don't fuck with me" to a creature that would've done best ignoring you.* [17:27] <&Hebizuka> *End of fight! (2 turns)* [17:28] * Thidran gets up, and dusts himself off. "That could've gone better, but oh well." He then checks for where the tear hit. [17:29] <&Hebizuka> *Your left hand has no open wound, thankfully.* [17:29] <&Hebizuka> *It doesn't even seem damaged.* [17:29] <~SU_Tempest> [Brian] Duuuude... You, like, blew that bird's face off! [17:29] <~SU_Tempest> [Brian] That was so cool, man. [17:30] * Thidran shakes his head in amazement. "We got a bit lucky that we didn't get hurt. You alright?" He asks Brian, before giving him a lopsided grin. "....It was pretty cool though." [17:30] <~SU_Tempest> [Brian] Haha, I knew it was a good idea to ask for a bodyguard, huh? [17:31] * Thidran nods. "It sure is. Beats the alternative." He looks towards the harpie, and shakes his head. He then heads over to it, and takes a closer look at the remains. "Well, while we're here, let me study this...thing for a minute before we continue." [17:32] <&Hebizuka> *A dead harpie. Died of excessively brutal gunshot wounds to the head. There is a lot of blood, as well as bits of flesh, skull, and brains scattered behind the fallen harpie's head.* [17:33] * Thidran reaches down to run his gloved hands over the harpie's clawed feet, and hums. "Got really lucky..." He murmurs. He then stands up, and unloads the magazine from his pistol, putting the partially depleted one into the backpack, and replacing it with a fresh one. [17:35] <&Hebizuka> *Unloaded the S&W 4006. You received ...* [17:35] <&Hebizuka> [Weapon accessory] Magazine: S&W 4006 11-round magazine. Size tier: Tiny ; Weight: 0.25+0.10 (0.35) - [5/11, 5x HP] [17:35] <&Hebizuka> *Reloading the S&W 4006...* [17:36] <&Hebizuka> [Reload] S&W 4006: Swapped magazines. Now: [11+1/11, 12x HP] [17:37] * Thidran lets out a sigh to calm his nerves, then heads for the other door. [17:37] <Thidran> !mrooms1 [17:37] <&Hebizuka> [ Thidran ] Unique door: 492 - Roomstyle: 181 - Enemy strength: 6 /6 [17:38] * Thidran heads through, keeping his gun pointed ahead. "Hopefully the rest is easy eh?" [17:38] <&Hebizuka> *A toilet room. There's @graffiti etched on one of the walls, as well as ammunition on the floor...* [17:39] * Thidran takes a look at the graffiti for a bit. "Man this place is chaotic as hell. How do you manage it Brian?" [17:40] <~SU_Tempest> [Brian] Beats me, dude. That's why everyone needs a gun, man! [17:40] <Thidran> @graffiti [17:40] <MazeBot> *Someone wrote a @rumor on the wall.* [17:40] <Thidran> @rumor [17:40] <MazeBot> Fully-automatic fire may not be accurate, but it is definitely scary. [17:41] * Thidran hums thoughtfully at that, before turning towards the ammo. [17:41] <&Hebizuka> [Ammunition] .38 Special, FMJ, 19 rounds - weight 0.19 [17:41] * Thidran then points at the ammunition just laying there. "Any more idea than me why this stuff seems strewn about like so?" He asks, picking up the rounds anyways, and putting them in his backpack. [17:42] <~SU_Tempest> [Brian] There's like, a problem with people throwing away stuff they don't want. There's all sorts of stuff lying around. [17:42] * Thidran shakes his head sadly. "Weird. Well, at least that reminds me of home." With that, he heads for the door. [17:42] <Thidran> !mrooms1 [17:42] <&Hebizuka> [ Thidran ] Unique door: 2230 - Roomstyle: 128 - Enemy strength: 5 /6 [17:43] <&Hebizuka> [Weight] (Pack/Main inv) 17.11/40 [17:43] <~SU_Tempest> [Brian] Your sector is like, full of stuff people leave behind huh? Must be fun if you pick everything up. Gun shops must love you, dude! [17:43] <~SU_Tempest> *He assumes you're from here.* [17:44] * Thidran chuckles. "Not so much guns, but food. Lots of food. At least I won't starve." [17:44] <~SU_Tempest> [Brian] Damn man, be careful with floor food. Can be nasty sometimes. [17:44] * Thidran shrugs. "It does the job, and it's free." With that, he heads towards the next door, gun at the ready. [17:45] <&Hebizuka> *A regular, featureless room. You spot a discarded magazine on the floor...* [17:46] * Thidran looks around, before slowly making his way towards the magazine. [17:46] <&Hebizuka> *There isn't anything around except for you, Brian, and the mag.* [17:46] <&Hebizuka> [Weapon accessory] Magazine: SIG P226 9mm 15-round magazine. Size tier: Small ; Weight: 0.5+0.01 (0.51) - [1/15, 1x AP] [17:47] * Thidran picks up the almost-empty magazine, and stows it away. "Guess the next gun shop will love me at this rate. So many guns..." [17:48] * Thidran then makes his way for the next door. [17:48] <Thidran> !mrooms1 [17:48] <&Hebizuka> [ Thidran ] Unique door: 3625 - Roomstyle: 183 - Enemy strength: 2 /6 [17:49] <&Hebizuka> *You make it inside a bedroom, which seems messy and disorganized. Brian immediately flops on his bed.* [17:49] <~SU_Tempest> [Brian] Oh man, I'm glad to be finally back home. [17:49] <~SU_Tempest> [Brian] Oh yeah, damn, I forgot to say. The hiring bureau, I gotta call them, they'll give you the pay. [17:51] <&Hebizuka> *He reaches for a handbag besides the bed, pulls out a phone and starts dialing a number, before confirming to the person on the line that yes, dude, the job is done, the dude was like, awesome, and that he was ready to be, like, teleported back.* [17:51] <&Hebizuka> *When you're ready to go, simply say so and you'll be brought back to the bureau.* [17:52] * Thidran has a seat as he waits on the teleportation to occur. "So, before I go, how's life here?" [17:52] <~SU_Tempest> [Brian] Depends on the sector... There's always activity, tho. It's like, dude, there's always somethin' to do or somethin happening. [17:52] <~SU_Tempest> [Brian] It's actually a pretty quiet day here. Only one monster attack in my area. [17:53] <Thidran> Besides the one we just got through? [17:53] <~SU_Tempest> [Brian] Yea, that was nothing. Well, it's scary when you're like, with nothing to defend yourself. I'm pretty distracted, I forgot my guns here, haha. [17:54] <~SU_Tempest> [Brian] So yea I'll recommend you around cuz you're a good dude. [17:54] * Thidran thinks on it. "Appreciate it. Well, they should be picking me up shortly." He stands up, and reaches out to give Brian a handshake. "Hopefully we meet again under better circumstances." [17:55] <~SU_Tempest> [Brian] Sure thing, dude. Take care, right? [17:55] <&Hebizuka> *Ready to leave?* [17:55] <Thidran> (Yes. I'm not overly greedy.) [17:56] <&Hebizuka> *You're teleported back to the bureau.* [17:56] <&Hebizuka> *The hirer looks at you, grin on the face, expectantly.* [17:56] <~SU_Tempest> [Hirer] Went well, Mr Brisbane? [17:56] * Thidran shudders at the sensation. "Ugh, I don't think I'll ever get used to that, but the job's done. Met a harpie along the way. It won't trouble anyone anymore." [17:57] <~SU_Tempest> [Hirer] Job risks, sir! Anyway, your payment is 200 P$, you can choose to get the money in cash, or I can put it on a credit account at your name. What will it be? [17:58] * Thidran tilts his head. "Credit? How does that work?" [17:59] <~SU_Tempest> [Hirer] We basically keep the money on a tab at your name. It's yours, just not on your person. Money can get a bit heavy once you fill your money pouch, after all. [18:00] * Thidran thinks about that. "Fair enough. I guess I can have it on credit." [18:00] <~SU_Tempest> [Hirer] Oh? I suppose you already have a bit of spending cash then. [18:02] * Thidran shakes his head. "Nope, but with the way things are going, I'll probably end up finding some more." [18:03] <~SU_Tempest> [Hirer] Your call, man. Come back later, we might have more for you in the future. [18:03] <&Hebizuka> *200 P$ placed in hiring bureau credit.* [18:03] <&Hebizuka> *Mission complete! !mrooms3 to resume progress.* [18:04] <Thidran> I shall. [18:04] <Thidran> Oh yes... [18:04] * Thidran gives the hirer a bow. "What's your name?" [18:05] <~SU_Tempest> [Hirer] Terry Boyce, at your service. But you might not see me next time, it could be a colleague. Make sure to mention your full name when you come in. [18:06] * Thidran thinks on that, before nodding. "Alright Terry. Nice to meet you. Hope things work out well for you here." With that, he heads for the doors, strangely calm. "Y'know...first I thought I was in hell, but I was wrong. Maybe this is a dying dream?" He muses on that, before heading for the doors. [18:06] <Thidran> !mrooms3 [18:06] <&Hebizuka> [ Thidran ] Left door: 719 - Front door: 2425 - Right door: 1693 - Roomstyle: 200 - Enemy strength: 1 /6 [18:06] <~SU_Tempest> *He shrugs and lets you go on your way.* [18:06] * Thidran takes a moment to think on it, before heading for the left door. He holsters the gun, and readies his baseball bat, now that he doesn't have to escort a guy. [18:07] <&Hebizuka> *Next special room at the 35th.* [18:08] * Thidran takes a breath, then walks through, wondering what's next up for him. [18:10] <&Hebizuka> *A scullery. Dishwashers, and crates full of clean, spotless dishes. You spot a Guard Sergeant. Given the outfit, you're pretty sure it's the local law enforcement. They're carrying a sort of assault rifle.* [18:11] * Thidran hums at that, before relaxing his grip on the bat, and slowly walking towards the officer. "Greetings there!" He calls out. [18:12] <~SU_Tempest> [GdSgt] Hello. Can I help you? [18:13] * Thidran bows to the sergeant. "A little bit. Would you happen to know where the nearest gun store is? I've been collecting some of the resulting refuse along the way that they'd appreciate." [18:15] <~SU_Tempest> [GdSgt] Hmm, sorry man. I don't know of any gun shop in the sector right now. [18:16] <~SU_Tempest> [GdSgt] In fact I don't think there's ANY weapons outlet in the sector at all. They must be elsewhere. Guess you'll have to travel a bit. [18:16] * Thidran smiles a bit. "Appreciate it. How're you doing today anyways?" He responds, while taking a closer look at the Sergeant. [18:18] <&Hebizuka> *The Guard Sergeant appears to be a late teen, pacific islander X-female. She is very tall, muscular, has very short orange hair, a pair of red eyes, wears a metallic collar with dogtags, and has a notable wound on the left arm; it appears to be a gunshot wound.* [18:20] * Thidran hums as he looks, a frown forming on his face. "You holding up alright?" He eventually asks. [18:20] <~SU_Tempest> [GdSgt] Uh, sure, why wouldn't I be? [18:21] * Thidran points towards her arm. "Well, besides being shot that is." [18:22] <~SU_Tempest> [GdSgt] Oh that? It's old now, don't worry. People always think I'm some sort of badass who likes to flash her wounds, but the reality is that on my very first day on duty, I meet a lunatic who thought it'd be funny to shoot me. I shot back, he died, and since then all my colleagues call me "Hit-woman". [18:23] <~SU_Tempest> [GdSgt] I really don't see what's so bad about it. Maybe I'm too cold? [18:25] * Thidran hums at that. "Yeah, lots of crazies around here. Me for one. Found some weird beast that had antlers on its' head. I was stuck beating it to death with a baseball bat, and got lucky that it only hit me once along the way." [18:26] <Thidran> Couldn't really avoid it though, since it was blocking the way, then charged. [18:26] <~SU_Tempest> [GdSgt] Haha, did you meet a deer or something? Fuckers can be REAL nasty up close. You should get a rifle and blast their heads next time. Save you the trouble. [18:28] * Thidran furrows his brows. "A rifle? Well, I did find a couple weapons, maybe you'd know about them better than me..." With that, he gingerly unholsters his pistol, and points it off to the side, displaying it for the woman. "I'm more familiar with more...personal weapons. Not used to guns. I got this and one that seems to be little more than scrap." [18:29] <~SU_Tempest> [GdSgt] Can I ask a possibly personal question? [18:29] * Thidran frowns, before nodding. "Feel free. Worst I'll say is no." [18:30] <~SU_Tempest> [GdSgt] Are you an otherworlder? [18:30] * Thidran slowly holsters his pistol, then scratches his head. "What's an otherworlder?" [18:31] <~SU_Tempest> [GdSgt] Are you someone who came from another world and arrived here some way or another? We get people like you sometimes. Don't worry, you'll adapt real fast. [18:31] * Thidran thinks about it, then slowly nods. "Ayuh. Kind of lost here, even if I did a job just a bit ago. Where I came from, there's no teleporters, that's for sure." [18:35] * Thidran thinks on things for a bit, then eventually asks. "Got a question for you. Do the otherworlders ever get a chance to settle in?" [18:35] <~SU_Tempest> [GdSgt] Most do, yes, if they're fast learners. [18:35] <~SU_Tempest> [GdSgt] We're taught quickly that survivability is important. [18:36] * Thidran nods carefully at that. "Well, thank you for your time. I really appreciate it. I don't wish to trouble you further though miss." With that, he gives her a faint smile, and starts heading for the doors. [18:37] <Thidran> !mrooms3 [18:37] <&Hebizuka> [ Thidran ] Left door: 990 - Front door: 3795 - Right door: 1238 - Roomstyle: 281 - Enemy strength: 5 /6 [18:37] <~SU_Tempest> [GdSgt] *She smiles back and nods.* Stay safe, sir. [18:37] * Thidran looks over his shoulder at her, before he heads towards the left door. "I'll try." He readies his bat, opens up, and walks through. [18:38] <&Hebizuka> *A regular, featureless room. There is nothing here, aside from a box of ammunition.* [18:39] * Thidran then starts to get into the rhythm of things once more, and takes a long look around before heading towards the box. [18:40] <&Hebizuka> *There isn't much else you can see.* [18:40] * Thidran rummages through the box of ammunition to see what's availible. [18:41] <&Hebizuka> *The box advertises 100 rounds of 7.92mm Mauser. Here's what you find:* [18:41] <&Hebizuka> [Ammunition] 7.92x57mm Mauser, FMJ, 94 rounds - weight 4.7 [18:42] * Thidran scratches his head at that, before carefully picking up the box and putting it in his backpack. [18:43] <&Hebizuka> [Weight] (Pack/main inv) 21.81/40 [18:43] * Thidran frowns. "Who leaves this random stuff around here anyways?" With that, he goes for the next set of doors. [18:43] <Thidran> !mrooms3 [18:43] <&Hebizuka> [ Thidran ] Left door: 2019 - Front door: 6388 - Right door: 5138 - Roomstyle: 40 - Enemy strength: 5 /6 [18:44] * Thidran readies his bat, and enters straight through the front door. [18:44] <~SU_Tempest> *All pain has fully subsided by now. You no longer feel anything where you got hurt.* [18:46] <&Hebizuka> *A storage area. You spot a group of creatures lurking here; two wargs, which are demon wolves!* [18:47] <Thidran> @cover [18:47] <MazeBot> A flipped wooden table. (Health: 24, LDV modifier: -1. AC Eqv: Hardskin. Pass-through threshold: 6+ dmg. Pain modifier: x1) [18:47] * Thidran tries to slink behind a closeby table, and see what he can do about the wolf problem...

The wargs get to attack, and your turn ends.* [18:49] <&Hebizuka> *The wargs both charge, teeth out; they both want to bite!* [18:49] <&Hebizuka> *Warg 1...* [18:49] <&Hebizuka> @bodyaim [18:49] <MazeBot> [LIMB] Right leg [18:49] <&Hebizuka> @roll 2d6 [18:49] <MazeBot> Hebizuka: 11 [18:51] <&Hebizuka> *Ow! A warg jaw closes on your right leg as it roars and snarls. It hurts a fair bit, but most importantly, it damages your bottom (your Jeans are now damaged), causes damage to your leg, which now sports an open wound. You are starting to bleed.* [18:52] <&Hebizuka> *And the second warg's turn now comes...* [18:52] <&Hebizuka> @bodyaim [18:52] <MazeBot> [HEAD] Head [18:52] <&Hebizuka> *Uh oh. It's going straight for your head.* [18:52] <&Hebizuka> @roll 2d6 [18:52] <MazeBot> Hebizuka: 6 [18:52] <&Hebizuka> *It thankfully narrowly misses; you have the unpleasant sensation of a jaw closing mere inches away from your face.* [18:52] <&Hebizuka> *End of Turn 1. You're bleeding.* [18:52] <&Hebizuka> *Ability cooldown ended.* [18:53] <&Hebizuka> *Turn 2. What's your next move?* [18:54] * Thidran snarls in pain as he's stuck in an awkward situation. "Fuck this." He snarls out at them, before bringing up his bat to swing down on the successful warg's head, then rapidly follows with a sideways swing while in this awkward position. [18:54] <&Hebizuka> *The wargs are now trying to claw you...* [18:55] <&Hebizuka> *Unfortunately, they're faster.* [18:55] <&Hebizuka> *Order: Wargs, You.* [18:55] <&Hebizuka> *Warg 1...* [18:55] <&Hebizuka> @bodyaim [18:55] <MazeBot> [UPPER BODY] Torso (Chest, back) [18:55] <&Hebizuka> @roll 2d6 [18:55] <MazeBot> Hebizuka: 4 [18:55] <&Hebizuka> *The warg that managed to take a bite out of your leg, fails to hit you.* [18:55] <&Hebizuka> *Warg 2...* [18:55] <&Hebizuka> @bodyaim [18:55] <MazeBot> [EXTREMITY] Right foot [18:55] <&Hebizuka> @roll 2d6 [18:55] <MazeBot> Hebizuka: 4 [18:55] <&Hebizuka> *They both spectacularly fail at hitting you, ending up bumping into each other instead.* [18:56] <&Hebizuka> *Your turn... You may roll now.* [18:56] <Thidran> @roll 2#2d6 [18:56] <MazeBot> Thidran: 9;4 [18:56] <&Hebizuka> *You strike the first warg's head, but miss on the second hit. The demon dog yelps in pain.* [18:56] <&Hebizuka> *It doesn't seem to be doing a lot of damage on them...* [18:57] <&Hebizuka> *End of Turn 2. You're feeling blood dripping out of your leg.* [18:58] <&Hebizuka> *Turn 3. What's your next move?* [18:58] * Thidran remembers he has a knife, and fields that. "Okay, you think you fuckers are scary? Let's see how you like this." With that, his knife becomes a blur, wildly stabbing straight towards one of the warg's faces, as his face contorts further in rage. (Attacking three times with a pocket knife towards the head.) [18:59] <&Hebizuka> *The warg you just hit tries to bite you, while the other one continues trying to claw you.* [18:59] <&Hebizuka> *But your knife is a lot faster...* [18:59] <&Hebizuka> *Order: You, Wargs.* [18:59] <&Hebizuka> *You may roll now.* [18:59] <Thidran> @roll 3#2d6 [18:59] <MazeBot> Thidran: 11;9;11 [19:00] <&Hebizuka> *With deadly precision, you manage to stab the biting demon dog's head, three times in a row, with such strength you feel you pierced the skull; every thrust out expelling more blood than the last.* [19:01] <&Hebizuka> *The warg has been instantly killed as a result.* [19:01] <&Hebizuka> Thidran [Pocket knife] Warg /H\ [19:02] <&Hebizuka> *The first warg can no longer try to bite you, since it just died to your knife.* [19:02] <&Hebizuka> *Second warg...* [19:02] <&Hebizuka> @bodyaim [19:02] <MazeBot> [UPPER BODY] Torso (Chest, back) [19:02] <&Hebizuka> @roll 2d6 [19:02] <MazeBot> Hebizuka: 8 [19:03] <&Hebizuka> *You receive a clawing to the chest, which your vest dampens somewhat while taking a bit of damage. Your vest's condition is now good, being no longer brand new. The vest prevented you from suffering another wound!* [19:03] <&Hebizuka> *It still hurts, though.* [19:03] <&Hebizuka> *End of Turn 3. You're still bleeding...* [19:03] <&Hebizuka> *Turn 4. Next move?* [19:04] * Thidran takes the wolf equivilent of a fist to the chest, and grunts in pain. "So you want some too you little shit?!?" He says in malevolent glee, his right hand already coated with some of the other warg's blood. "Let's see how you like this then!" Again his hand becomes a blur, rapidly thrusting towards its' snapping jaws. [19:04] <Thidran> (Three more strikes towards the warg's head.) [19:05] <&Hebizuka> *The warg roars and snarls, not about to give out, and goes for a bite!* [19:05] <&Hebizuka> *Again, you are faster.* [19:05] <&Hebizuka> *Order: You, Warg. You may roll first.* [19:05] <Thidran> @roll 3#2d6 [19:05] <MazeBot> Thidran: 5;9;7 [19:06] <&Hebizuka> *Your first swing misses, which in turn, botches the entire attack; the warg has avoided your hits.* [19:06] <&Hebizuka> *Warg's turn...* [19:06] <&Hebizuka> @bodyaim [19:06] <MazeBot> [LOWER BODY] Lower body (Hips, pelvis, buttocks) [19:06] <&Hebizuka> @roll 2d6 [19:06] <MazeBot> Hebizuka: 6 [19:06] <&Hebizuka> *The warg misses narrowly again.* [19:07] <&Hebizuka> *End of Turn 4. You're still bleeding.* [19:07] <&Hebizuka> *Turn 5. What will you do next?* [19:08] * Thidran feels the blood running down his leg, as desperation sets in. "You aren't going to end me yet..." He says softly, feeling himself slow down slightly as his frazzled body barely dodges that bite. He continues to stab, aiming to end the battle as soon as possible. [19:08] <Thidran> (Aiming for the wolf's head, three times.) [19:10] <&Hebizuka> *The warg is relentless, and tries to bite you again.* [19:11] <&Hebizuka> *You may roll first ,as the order has not changed.* [19:11] <Thidran> @roll 3#2d6 [19:11] <MazeBot> Thidran: 9;6;3 [19:11] <&Hebizuka> *Your first stab connects, but not the following, which in turn leads to the third not happening.* [19:12] <&Hebizuka> * [19:12] <&Hebizuka> *Amazingly enough, the warg survives to a knife to the head...* [19:13] <&Hebizuka> *Warg's turn...* [19:14] <&Hebizuka> @bodyaim [19:14] <MazeBot> [LIMB] Right leg [19:14] <&Hebizuka> @roll 2d6 [19:14] <MazeBot> Hebizuka: 6 [19:14] <&Hebizuka> *It amazingly fails to hurt you any further.* [19:15] <&Hebizuka> *End of Turn 5.* [19:15] <&Hebizuka> *Your wound is still putting out blood...* [19:15] <&Hebizuka> *Turn 6. What is your next move?* [19:16] * Thidran stares bugeyed as the wolf still keeps charging, even after taking a knife to the head. "Stubborn sonofabitch..." He manages tiredly, again lucking out by swaying out of the way of the warg's teeth. He bounces on his left leg, then lets out a flurry of stabs towards the wolf's side. "Alright, head's out, let's see if you like bleeding to death?" [19:17] <&Hebizuka> *The warg seems in a shitty shape now that it has realized it just got stabbed in the head. That demon dog doesn't want to stop, though! It goes again, teeth out!* [19:17] <&Hebizuka> *You may roll first.* [19:17] <Thidran> @roll 3#2d6 [19:17] <MazeBot> Thidran: 4;8;11 [19:20] <&Hebizuka> *Sadly, your first hit misses, and the following swings do not happen.* [19:20] <&Hebizuka> *Warg's turn...* [19:20] <&Hebizuka> @bodyaim [19:20] <MazeBot> [LIMB] Left arm [19:20] <&Hebizuka> @roll 2d6 [19:20] <MazeBot> Hebizuka: 9 [19:21] <&Hebizuka> *You find warg teeth closing on your left arm, now... That hurts a fair bit, but most importantly it damages your left arm and causes an open wound there as well, which in turn means more bleeding.* [19:22] <&Hebizuka> *End of Turn 6. Today is not a good day for your bloodstream.* [19:22] <&Hebizuka> *Turn 7. What's next?* [19:23] * Thidran feels a bit woozy at this point. "Dunno how much longer I'm going to last...die already you fucker..." He lets out a tired sigh, his eyes going bloodshot from the pain. He waits for the warg to close in further, then opts for the strategy that worked on the first at least. More stabs straight for the head. "Either you or I are going. Maybe both at this rate..." [19:25] <&Hebizuka> *The warg is not feeling any better, and only gathers enough strength to try and claw you.* [19:25] <&Hebizuka> *You may roll first.* [19:25] <Thidran> @roll 3#2d6 [19:25] <MazeBot> Thidran: 4;9;5 [19:26] <&Hebizuka> *Luck isn't on your side either...* [19:27] <&Hebizuka> *Warg's turn...* [19:27] <&Hebizuka> @bodyaim [19:27] <MazeBot> [UPPER BODY] Torso (Chest, back) [19:27] <&Hebizuka> @roll 2d6 [19:27] <MazeBot> Hebizuka: 10 [19:28] <&Hebizuka> *You feel claws come towards your chest again. Pain rises again, you are hurt, and your vest takes a bit of damage. You can thank your vest for your life again though, it has once again prevented a wound.* [19:28] <&Hebizuka> *End of Turn 6. You're feeling blood trickle out of your leg and arm.* [19:28] <&Hebizuka> *Turn 7. What's your next move?* [19:30] * Thidran grunts in pain as again he takes a hit, glad of the armor that was given to him initially. He pauses briefly upon remembering something important, before sinking down clumsily to draw his pistol. He shakily aims it towards the warg closing in, and starts firing shots at its' head, finally remembering he even has a ranged weapon. (Five shots, warg's head.) [19:33] <&Hebizuka> *The warg shakes its head, and tries to go for another clawing.* [19:34] <&Hebizuka> *You may roll first.* [19:34] <Thidran> @roll 5#2d6 [19:34] <MazeBot> Thidran: 5;7;7;8;9 [19:35] <&Hebizuka> *Shots 1-5: Miss, Miss, Miss, Hit, Hit.* [19:35] <&Hebizuka> *Two hollow-points strike the already wounded warg in the head. The results are predictably messy.* [19:36] <&Hebizuka> Thidran [S&W 4006] Warg /H\ [19:36] <&Hebizuka> *End of fight! (7 turns)* [19:37] * Thidran pants as the other warg goes still. He takes stock briefly, then starts pulling out bandages to try staunching the wounds he's received. [19:38] <Thidran> Gotta stop the bleeding first... [19:38] <&Hebizuka> *You can use 2 bandages to cure both your open wounds. Do so?* [19:38] <Thidran> (Yes.) [19:39] <&Hebizuka> *You've consumed both your bandages to treat your wounds.* [19:39] <&Hebizuka> *You are no longer bleeding.* [19:40] * Thidran pants tiredly. "Damn...fighting takes alot out of you." He crawls out of the way, lays down, and tries to relax enough to rest a bit more. [19:41] <Thidran> @roll 1#1d2 [19:41] <MazeBot> Thidran: 2 [19:42] <&Hebizuka> *You succeed at taking a regenerative nap yet again.* [19:42] <&Hebizuka> *10 turns pass...* [19:42] <&Hebizuka> *Pain subsides to lower, still discernible, but more tolerable levels. You're now feeling hungry though.* [19:43] * Thidran looks through his pack, and decides to eat a box of nuggets. "Might as well enjoy it." He mutters. [19:43] <&Hebizuka> *Eat how many portions (up to 6, 6 being one whole box)?* [19:44] <Thidran> (6. One whole box.) [19:46] <&Hebizuka> *That wasn't very nutritious.* [19:46] <&Hebizuka> *You still feel hungry.* [19:47] * Thidran thinks about it, then eats the other box. "Ehh, might as well." He downs the second box of nuggets too. [19:47] <&Hebizuka> *The second one was a BIT better.* [19:48] <&Hebizuka> *You don't feel it has sated your hunger completely, but it's gonna last. For a bit.* [19:48] <&Hebizuka> *You're out of boxes of nuggets.* [19:48] * Thidran frowns. "Well, it's better than nothing at least." [19:49] * Thidran wipes his bloody knife and hand onto the warg's coat to clean it off, then holsters it, and pulls out a pencil and piece of paper.
