In no specific order, and goes through what she finds* [15:06] <&Hebizuka> *There are two important terms which describe taking objects: equipping and sparing. Equipping is valid for weapons, clothing, and load-bearing gear.

[16:04] <Kari> *tries to examine the room again, just in case she missed anything of note* [16:04] <&Hebizuka> *There isn't much of interest outside of advertisements promoting the health benefits of learning martial arts. Most notably the part about "not getting killed" being the #1 health benefit.* [16:05] <&Hebizuka> *If only the dojo master was there.* [16:05] <Kari> Well if not getting killed is their best benefit I guess I can say this is a successful self defense place... none the less, ain't nobody got time for that!

Many rows of many bookshelves, each holding a great quantity of books about many subjects. The librarian is present, and the first thing you notice is the shotgun they have, slung on their back, while putting back a cartload of more books on their destined shelf.* [16:08] <Kari> E... Ehm, hello. Am I interrupting you? *asks the librarian, trying to establish contact at a library-safe tone of voice* [16:09] <&Hebizuka> *The librarian turns her head towards you.* [16:09] <~SU_Tempest> [Librarian] No, go ahead. What do you need? [16:11] <Kari> I was just curious about this room, I've never been here before.. is there anything here that you could recommend me doing? Or by chance do you have any books you do not have time or room for? [16:12] <~SU_Tempest> [Librarian] Ah, you must be fresh out of the child zone I guess... Making your big entry in the adult mazes, huh? [16:12] <~SU_Tempest> [Librarian] Anyhow, sorry but I can't give away any books. [16:14] <Kari> That's okay. I was just curious. Always liked reading, you see. *awkward head scratch* And yes. I'm relatively new, you might say... any suggestions of what to expect? [16:15] <~SU_Tempest> [Librarian] Well, firstly, if you want to read here, there is a 1 P$ usage fee per book you wish to read. So when you make your choice, please bring them to my desk so that you are allowed to read them. Next... I don't really know what kind of suggestions to make if you don't give me an idea on what you're interested in. There's many things you might want. [16:15] <~SU_Tempest> [Librarian] Or, not want. [16:16] <Kari> Aha... I'll be sure to try to keep this in mind for when I actually have money... None the less, I'll keep it in mind. If I ever find my way back I will without a doubt try to do that! Thank you for your time. [16:17] <~SU_Tempest> [Librarian] No problem. Stay safe on your way out.

Just enjoys the grass soft, happy feel... then sets onwards for high adventure!* [16:22] <&Hebizuka> *What is most surprising is how the elk is absolutely not afraid of you or trying to run away.

On the right, it looks like a workplace office; a desk, a computer, posters and advertisements on the wall which are promoting various services, a large "Announcements" board which currently has two or three small notes pinned, and someone at the computer.* [16:34] <&Hebizuka> *But on the left, you see eight prison cells, as if suddenly, one half of the room was a prison.

[16:35] <Kari> *examines the room in greater detail, sticks mostly to the workplace area, though* [16:37] <&Hebizuka> *Looking closer, the announcements appear to be job offers, buying/selling offers, and personals of various kinds. The person at the office notices you, though.* [16:37] <~SU_Tempest> [???] Miss? Can I help you? [16:38] <Kari> Ah, I'm just passing through and I decided to have a look at the announcement board... I don't think I can help with any of the offers, though... May I ask who you are? *checks out the person.. and the job offers* [16:40] <~SU_Tempest> [Hirer] Greetings, young miss. I am James Lomax, Hirer. This place is a hiring bureau; I suspect school teachers have talked to you about what this place is? No? I bet they want to keep you enrolled on their long-ass courses, but that doesn't bring any cash on the table, now, does it? [16:42] <Kari> Well... No, and.. no. I don't know anything about this place, and neither do I know a lot about teachers... they told me to keep away from suspicious strangers, but that's it. And I do not have any cash on the table.. or at all, for that matter. [16:44] <~SU_Tempest> [Hirer] So this is your first time here. Good! Let me explain my role. I am a hirer; and my job is to be the intermediate between people who need to get things done, and people who want to do things. In other words, between employers, and employees, though ere we don't use the term "employees", we use the term "contractor". [16:45] <~SU_Tempest> [Hirer] It can be anything. Someone who wants a bodyguard, someone who needs a specialist to fix a problem, someone who wants loving company for the night; anything. The principle remains the same - employers come here, explain what they want done, deposit a sum of money, and I make an announcement. Then a contractor who's interested in the job can come, take the job, do the job, and earn the cash deposited as a reward. Simple, right? [16:45] <Kari> Ah, right... and I suppose that'd make me one of those, if I should find a job that I think I could do, correct? [16:46] <~SU_Tempest> [Hirer] Currently we are -looking- for contractors, and a young student such as yourself seeking cash, and possibly a bit of reputation... Yes, you should definitely sign up as a contractor, but that's my opinion only. Would you like to become a contractor? [16:48] <Kari> I would like so indeed! [16:49] <~SU_Tempest> [Hirer] Very well! All I will need is your full name, your age, and if you have a place of residence, your room number... if you don't have one, that's also fine, but we'll be counting on you to come back yourself regularly. [16:51] <Kari> Well... My name is Kari Sitari Karski... Kari, for short... I am... was.. something among those lines, nineteen years old. And I don't have any place to stay. But if I find one I'll inform you somehow. And I'll try my best to come back here as often as I can... somehow. [16:55] <~SU_Tempest> [Hirer] 19? Ah, such a young one. If only there were more like you, we'd have so many more contractors. [16:56] <~SU_Tempest> [Hirer] You know, I'm 63, and I've been doing this job since -forever-, and trust me I've seen all kinds of people in my office. In the last few years, young humans have been less and less common... [16:56] <Kari> Well I suppose most nineteen year olds don't have to worry about finding a home..! *nervous laugh at her poor joke* [16:56] <Kari> Anyway... Is there anything you think I could handle, or at the least keep an eye out for? [16:57] <~SU_Tempest> [Hirer] Not when they're all fucking joining the military, that's for sure. Sigh, if only they'd quit wasting their time in that branch and come helping those who can bring them the REAL money. [16:57] <~SU_Tempest> [Hirer] Ah, yes, sorry! Let's see... [16:57] <Kari> Don't apologize, I appreciate your words. I learn a lot from you. [16:58] <~SU_Tempest> [Hirer] Know that people here, employers especially, work on the principle of reputation. I can't send you doing the very difficult and high-paying stuff right away. [16:59] <Kari> I didn't think you would. I'm fine with doing odd things, I need to learn how things work around here anyway. [16:59] <~SU_Tempest> [Hirer] So you may have to do jobs that sound dumb or stupid at first, and you won't get a lot of cash at first, but one satisfied person leads to good rep, which leads to your good name being talked about in the right circles, and this leads to that. Do good work, don't refuse or botch jobs, and sooner than later you'll be asked to do really awesome things for awesome pay. [17:00] <Kari> I'll do my best! [17:00] <~SU_Tempest> [Hirer] But let's talk business. I can send you on a job right away if you wish. Want to hear details? [17:01] <Kari> Yes please. I'll be sure to do my best with it. [17:03] <~SU_Tempest> [Hirer] Alright, it's pretty simple. A citizen called me a short while ago and asked me to call him back and send him someone whenever possible. He's lost his stuff - no weapons, no bag, that kind of big stupid trouble, and he needs someone to defend him and escort him back home. It's as dumb as that, he doesn't want to go the way and risk anything, and he's ready to pay 200 P$ for it. Whaddya say? [17:07] <Kari> If someone needs help I'd do it for free... but since money is offered I'll humbly accept. [17:09] <~SU_Tempest> [Hirer] Please take this, before you go. [17:09] <&Hebizuka> [Key item] Telepad beacon [17:10] <&Hebizuka> *A tiny, capsule-shaped object.* [17:12] <Kari> *nods and takes it slowly* I'll do so... and may I ask something before I leave? [17:12] <~SU_Tempest> [Hirer] This is a beacon. I give this to all my contractors, that allows them to use my teleporting pad so that they can immediately go meet the employer. It's also what allows you to return in this office once you're done. It's fast, it's convenient, and it's not a hassle like that. [17:12] <~SU_Tempest> [Hirer] Oh and it works in every office, not just mine. [17:12] <~SU_Tempest> [Hirer] Anyways, yes, what else do you wish to know? [17:13] <Kari> Ehm.. that. *points at the cells* what are those for? [17:14] <~SU_Tempest> [Hirer] Ah, the cells! Don't worry. This is where creatures for sale are placed. Sometimes you'll find people as well, but generally speaking, it'll be pariahs, the occasional mercenary, or some other fuck who has lost his rights. [17:15] <~SU_Tempest> [Hirer] It takes a lot of problems to find yourself there, though. [17:15] <Kari> I see.. I pity anyone with a mind who ends up there.. [17:16] <Kari> Anyway, I'll be off and look for this person! [17:16] <~SU_Tempest> [Hirer] If you're that desperate for cash, you could sell yourself there, too, but I strongly suggest you remain a free contractor. People who want to buy creatures from the cage are looking for pets, servants, or some sort of thing that will be submissive and loyal to them; you will NOT be well treated, even worse than a maid on minimum wage. [17:17] <Kari> That hardly sounds like a smart choice if I wanted cash. [17:17] <~SU_Tempest> [Hirer] Correct. Anyhow, when you're ready to meet your employer, step on the telepad below me. [17:18] <~SU_Tempest> *The hirer then slides to the left - he is sitting on a chair with wheels, revealing the teleporting pad underneath.* [17:18] <Kari> I shall do so! *stepsteps~* [17:19] <&Hebizuka> *You're teleported inside a warehouse room, where a Citizen is waiting. This citizen appears to be male, and carries nothing but his clothes. Indeed he is unarmed and without any bag or LBE on him.* [17:19] <Kari> Hello, I heard you wanted help... And so I'm going to help you, mister..? [17:20] <~SU_Tempest> [Citizen] Whoa, dude, hey. Call me Brian. What's your name? [17:20] <&Hebizuka> *He seems like a stoner, and talks slowly - but at least he is not too hard to understand.* [17:21] <Kari> My name is Kari, mister Brian. [17:22] <~SU_Tempest> [Brian] Whoa, no "mister", just call me Brian. I'm just a dude, I'm like, not a stingy dude. You don't have to be all, yknow, honorific and stuff. Anyway uh... The way home is pretty, uh, straight. There's like, only one door but I know there's stuff, like, creatures with bad mojo in the area. [17:23] <&Hebizuka> *!mrooms1 until the end of the mission.* [17:23] <~SU_Tempest> [Brian] So you're like, going to have to defend me if we meet any, okay? [17:25] <Kari> Yes, That I will! [17:26] <Kari> Now, if you'd just follow me, Brian. And we'll have you back home in no time... [17:27] <Kari> !mrooms1 [17:27] <&Hebizuka> [ Kari ] Unique door: 3060 - Roomstyle: 525 - Enemy strength: 4 /6 [17:27] <Kari> *leads him through door 3060* [17:27] <&Hebizuka> *Mission start.* [17:27] <~SU_Tempest> [Brian] That's cool. [17:28] <&Hebizuka> *A regular, featureless room. You spot an abandoned box of ammo on the floor...* [17:30] <Kari> *checks out the box, pockets* [17:31] <&Hebizuka> [Ammunition] Box of 7.92x57mm Mauser, FMJ, 20 rounds - [14/20] - Weight: 0.7 [17:31] <&Hebizuka> [Pack/Main] Wgt 11.89/40 [17:32] <~SU_Tempest> [Brian] So you're, like, a student, and all? [17:33] <Kari> I guess I am. Or I was... how about you? [17:33] <Kari> !mrooms1 [17:33] <&Hebizuka> [ Kari ] Unique door: 379 - Roomstyle: 255 - Enemy strength: 4 /6 [17:33] <~SU_Tempest> [Brian] I like, dropped out. Stuff's too hard for me, I like simpler stuff. [17:34] <&Hebizuka> *An abandoned workshop. It used to be the workplace of an engineer, though most of the tools are gone, and there is nary any usable machine here. You do spot something in the back, which looks like a roll of blue paper, as well as a weapon.* [17:36] <~SU_Tempest> [Brian] So if you're a student and all, you must be young or somethin'. You're like what? 17? 18? [17:37] <Kari> Nineteen. May I ask you to stay back, I'm going to inspect something, and if it's dangerous I'd rather not you get hurt... *checks the something* [17:37] <~SU_Tempest> *Brian freezes on the spot.* [17:38] <&Hebizuka> [Crafting] (Blueprint) "Level 1, ONCnade, 1x ONC charge + 1x MkIIIA2 grenade" [17:38] <Kari> No need to be THAT stiff. *checks the weapon as well... after pocketing the blueprint* I like your company, you're pretty nice to have around. [17:39] <~SU_Tempest> [Brian] It's, like, nice of you. Usually, people are like, a lot less polite with me. They're all, "good for nothing", "slacker", and all. It ain't my fault if there's like, no job for me! [17:40] <&Hebizuka> [Weapon] Class 3 - Para Ordnance P-16.40 pistol | .40 S&W - Semi-auto | No accessory | P-16 16-round mag, +1 | Weight: 3 - [3+1/16, 4x HP] - Cond: Worn / Clns: Dirty [17:41] <Kari> It's hard for people to know how to treat people like you... you may need to look a bit more for a job. Nothing comes flying into waiting arms unless you stand up and spread them first. *thinks back at her brother in law... Brian reminds her of him* [17:41] <Kari> *pockets the pistol for now* [17:41] <~SU_Tempest> [Brian] I know, I know...

[17:44] <&Hebizuka> *You go down a short volley of stairs, with your "employer" following closely, then find yourself in a grassy, featureless room. There's a shiny item in the grass here...* [17:45] <Kari> Maybe, if you can handle yourself and do good, I think I could dig you... but then again I bet a ton of more beautiful girls would dig you as well... Oh, that thing looks shiny... hm.. *examines the room as carefully as she can* [17:45] <&Hebizuka> [Valuable] Metal - Silver tooth - Value 20-40 P$ (1d21 +19) - Weight: 0.1 [17:45] <&Hebizuka> *There appears to be nothing else of use.* [17:46] <&Hebizuka> *That's not a mere real tooth coated in silver. It's a solid block of silver carved like a tooth.* [17:46] <Kari> Hm.. neat.. *pockets* [17:47] <~SU_Tempest> [Brian] Yeah but, you're like, the only girl who hasn't insulted me. [17:49] <Kari> There are plenty of girls out there, maybe you haven't looked in the right places? [17:49] <~SU_Tempest> [Brian] Hah. Maybe, yea. [17:51] <Kari> Shall we get moving again?

The furniture here is scarce and in poor shape - an old bed with tattered sheets, a TV that's seen better days, some garbage littered by the side of a desk and chair, and a few containers.* [18:41] <~SU_Tempest> [Brian] Oh yeah, here we are. Hey, uh, like, Kari right? That's your name right? Hey thanks Kari. You saved my, like, ass and all. [18:43] <Kari> No need to thank me, Brian. I'm just glad you're safe. [18:43] <&Hebizuka> *If you're finished, you can use the beacon to return to the hiring bureau and resume your progress.* [18:43] <&Hebizuka> *As well as collect your cash.* [18:45] <Kari> I'll be seeing you another time, Brian.

[18:47] <~SU_Tempest> [Hirer] Welcome back, missus. The job went well, I take it? [18:48] <Kari> Not a scratch on him. Safe and sound. He MAY actually consider getting a job here.. MAY. [18:48] <&Hebizuka> *Mission complete.* [18:49] <~SU_Tempest> [Hirer] Well, it's his choice. In the meantime, good news for -you-! A completed job, means cash and good reputation! When employers come with a job offer, they can be suggested people for it, and sometimes they don't want anyone but one specific person to do it. [18:50] <Kari> I see... That's really good! I'm glad none the less. [18:50] <~SU_Tempest> [Hirer] As for the reward, the payment is, as I said before, 200 P$. You can have them in cash right now, or I can keep them in credit, under your name. You won't be able to use it but you won't need to carry it... however, since you told me you're broke, I suggest you take it in cash. [18:51] <Kari> That was the plan, mister. [18:52] <&Hebizuka> [Money] 200 P$ [18:52] <Kari> *yoink!* [18:53] <&Hebizuka> *Total carried: 200 in pouch* [18:53] <~SU_Tempest> [Hirer] Well, missus, all I can tell you is to come back later!

I was only passing through. Apologies if I'm bothering you... I've just never seen anything like you before. [19:27] <~SU_Tempest> [Hakutaku] Really? Not even in pictures? Come on, I won't buy that. You are clearly a student, and from the looks of it, I'd say you just got out of Kidsworld, so I'd say you should at least know what I am. [19:27] <~SU_Tempest> [Hakutaku] Unless there is something you're not telling me. [19:28] <Kari> I don't know what there is to tell you that you should be told... I've honestly never seen... anything like you. [19:30] <~SU_Tempest> [Hakutaku] Well, I am a hakutaku. A kind of youkai. And you are a human. [19:30] <~SU_Tempest> [Hakutaku] Anyhow, pleasantries aside. Do you need anything? [19:31] <Kari> Not really, no. I was just passing through. [19:32] <~SU_Tempest> [Hakutaku] If so, get out?
