From Mazeworld

[10:31] <&Hebizuka> *Welcome back to the Mazes, Tasia. You have visited 143 rooms, next special room is at the 150th. You're currently under the effects of a cigarette, you feel mildly turned on - though that's being suppressed by the nicotine and other thoughts on your mind. Otherwise, you're healthy, and so are your allies Regina and Akemi. !mrooms3 to resume.* [10:31] * Tasia takes a deep breath and brushes the dust off of herself and her allies, since we've been in storage for a while. [10:32] <Tasia> !mrooms3 [10:32] <&Hebizuka> [ Tasia ] Left door: 4318 - Front door: 3617 - Right door: 2190 - Roomstyle: 516 - Enemy strength: 6 /6 [10:32] <Tasia> "Shall we continue?" [10:32] * Tasia goes Left. [10:32] <~SU_Tempest> [Akemi] Yeah, let's rock. [10:32] <~SU_Tempest> [Regina] Huh... Oh, yeah! [10:33] <&Hebizuka> *You and your party go down a flight of stairs, reaching a regular, featureless room. You spot an unique object on the ground.* [10:34] <Tasia> "Hmmm, what's this?" [10:34] * Tasia walks toward the object to check it out. [10:34] <&Hebizuka> [Key item] Handcuffs. 2d6 to use. Successful roll: Target rolls 2d6 to escape, highest score of the two succeeds. If 12, auto-cuff. If failed: turn end. [10:35] <Tasia> "Hey, neat. Looks like a reason to use that taser..." [10:35] * Tasia clips them onto her belt. [10:35] <~SU_Tempest> [Regina] I feel bad for the police officer who dropped these... [10:35] <Tasia> Do they come with a key? [10:35] <&Hebizuka> *Indeed they do.* [10:35] <Tasia> That's good, then [10:35] <&Hebizuka> *Key item acquired!* [10:36] <Tasia> !mrooms3 [10:36] <&Hebizuka> [ Tasia ] Left door: 1491 - Front door: 7292 - Right door: 3798 - Roomstyle: 42 - Enemy strength: 4 /6 [10:36] <Tasia> Front door. [10:38] <&Hebizuka> *A library. The librarian is present, shotgun toting as always. Someone abandoned a roll of blue paper in a corner, which doesn't seem like it belongs in any of the bookshelves here.* [10:38] <Tasia> "Hello!" [10:39] <&Hebizuka> *The librarian turns out to be male. He turns to you, eyes you and your partners longly, before finally replying.* [10:39] <~SU_Tempest> [Librarian] Hi there.. Can I, uh, help you? [10:40] <Tasia> "We were just passing through, actually, but I do like libraries. Paper books have such a nice smell to them." [10:41] <~SU_Tempest> [Librarian] Er, right, yeah. I guess so... *It looks like he's staring cross-eyed at you, like you've got something weird or wrong on yourself.* [10:41] <Tasia> "Is everything okay?" [10:42] <~SU_Tempest> [Librarian] Yeah, yeah, don't worry... [10:43] * Tasia checks herself to make sure there's nothing wrong with her clothes or appearance. [10:43] <&Hebizuka> *You find nothing out of the ordinary. You're well-dressed and well-geared.* [10:44] <~SU_Tempest> *The librarian feigns returning to work, fiddling with something at his desk.* [10:44] * Tasia shrugs and walks over to get the blueprint. [10:44] <~SU_Tempest> [Akemi] *whisper* Librarians are weirdoes, sometimes... [10:44] <&Hebizuka> [Crafting] (Blueprint) "Level 1, ChlB, 1x M18 smoke grenade + 1x Bottle of vinegar + 1x Chlorine tablet" [10:45] <Tasia> "Hmmm, I've got one of those smoke grenades." [10:45] * Tasia sticks the bluueprint into her pack. [10:46] <&Hebizuka> *It looks like you're running out of space. [49.89/50]* [10:48] <Tasia> "Anyone else have space for this?" [10:48] <~SU_Tempest> [Regina] Hey, need help? Maybe I can take it for you... [10:48] <Tasia> "I'd hate to just leave it." [10:48] <Tasia> "Ah, thanks!" [10:48] <&Hebizuka> *Regi takes the blueprint, saving you the hassle of leaving a potentially useful item behind!* [10:50] <~SU_Tempest> *Akemi keeps an eye around. But mostly on the librarian, who is still quietly typing away on his desk PC.* [10:50] * Tasia figures there's not too much else important here, for the time being. [10:50] <Tasia> !mrooms3 [10:50] <&Hebizuka> [ Tasia ] Left door: 4967 - Front door: 5310 - Right door: 247 - Roomstyle: 93 - Enemy strength: 1 /6 [10:50] <Tasia> "Might as well give that guy some space." [10:50] <Tasia> Right door. [10:52] <&Hebizuka> *A messy washitsu, which looks like it has been intentionally vandalized - most of the furniture is broken or out of order. No-one appears to be occupying this room, though you do spot a shiny object!* [10:52] <Tasia> "What a mess - but it looks like one thing survuved the disaster." [10:52] * Tasia examines the shiny! [10:52] <~SU_Tempest> [Akemi] Urgh. Place got sacked by Soldiers. [10:53] <~SU_Tempest> *Regina looks nervous. She nods, as if to confirm.* [10:53] <&Hebizuka> [Valuable] Metal - Gold cuff link - Value 50-165 P$ (1d116 +49) - Weight: 0.1 [10:54] <Tasia> "Ooh, not a bad find! Looks like these were some pretty lousy pillagers." [10:54] <~SU_Tempest> [Regina] Y-you know that I don't approve of this, right? The whole hitting on youkai, and all... [10:54] * Tasia picks it up and stuffs it into her pack, filling it up. [10:54] <&Hebizuka> [Pack/Main] 49.99/50 [10:55] <&Hebizuka> *Your backpack is now almost completely stuffed to the brim...* [10:55] <Tasia> "I know. Perpetuating the war isn't helping anyone." [10:56] <Tasia> !mrooms3 [10:56] <&Hebizuka> [ Tasia ] Left door: 911 - Front door: 6060 - Right door: 6630 - Roomstyle: 314 - Enemy strength: 3 /6 [10:56] <Tasia> Left door. [10:57] <~SU_Tempest> [Akemi] There are times I wish I could stop this shit, or at least do something about it, but that'd require me being an activist. And that's not really somethin' I'm attached to either. [10:58] <&Hebizuka> *The party reaches a meeting office. A long oval table surrounded with about a dozen of office wheeled chairs. It looks like there is no creature in here, all you spot in this room is a magazine abandoned on the floor. No trace of fighting either.* [10:58] <Tasia> "There has to be some way to resolve it that doesn't demand some kind of genocide. As far as I can tell, people have been trying to solve the problem through war for generations, and it's never accomplished a damn thing except getting people killed." [10:58] <&Hebizuka> *Both Regina and Akemi nod at that.* [10:59] <Tasia> "What we need as a neutral party to enforce a cease-fire and make 'em negotiate a settlement." [10:59] <~SU_Tempest> [Regina] Ah, if only. [11:00] * Tasia examines the magazine. [11:00] <~SU_Tempest> [Regina] I-I'd be all for that if we somehow could do that. But the Colonel is completely crazy, and, well... no offense Akemi, but the activists are pretty er... Y-yknow. F-fanatics? [11:00] <~SU_Tempest> [Akemi] *shrug* None taken. Agreed anyway. [11:00] <&Hebizuka> [Weapon accessory] Magazine: MP-443 Grach 17-round magazine. Size tier: Small ; Weight: 0.5+0.06 (0.56) - [6/17- 6x FMJ] [11:00] * Tasia takes a look at the ammunition inside [11:00] <&Hebizuka> *Caliber is 9x19mm Parabellum.* [11:01] <Tasia> "Hmm, we don't have any 9mm Para weapons.... it'd be nice if all these Makarov guns were Para instead, but what can we do?" [11:02] <Tasia> "Gotta roll with what we've got." [11:02] <~SU_Tempest> [Regina] I can take it if you want! My bag's still got space. [11:02] <Tasia> "Hey, if you wanna sell it, go for it!" [11:02] * Tasia hands the mag to Regina. [11:02] <&Hebizuka> *Which she catches and promptly drops in her field pack.* [11:02] <Tasia> On to the next! [11:02] <Tasia> !mrooms3 [11:02] <&Hebizuka> [ Tasia ] Left door: 2450 - Front door: 2790 - Right door: 6189 - Roomstyle: 342 - Enemy strength: 1 /6 [11:04] <Tasia> "You know, if only we could get all the militant leaders in one room with a bundle of explosives... the problem with war is that the people at the top aren't the ones who make sacrifices." [11:04] <~SU_Tempest> [Akemi] We all gotta dream, eh? [11:04] <Tasia> "Either that, or just force them to put up with each other for a year or three and maybe they'd learn to get along." [11:05] <Tasia> Right door, by the way. [11:05] <&Hebizuka> *A regular, featureless room. As usual in such rooms, it's pretty much a big cube of gray. You see loose ammo on the floor.* [11:06] * Tasia checks it out, hoping it's some .50 finally [11:06] <&Hebizuka> [Ammunition] 12 gauge, FRAG-12, 1 round - Weight: 0.05 [11:06] <&Hebizuka> *Not .50 AE, but a single shell of exploding 12 gauge.* [11:06] <Tasia> "Ah here we - oh, you sold your shotgun." [11:06] <Tasia> "Worth taking anyway, I bet these are pricy." [11:07] <~SU_Tempest> [Akemi] Damn. Haven't seen one of those in a while. [11:07] * Tasia hands it to Regi, if she's the one with room. [11:07] <&Hebizuka> *She takes it, handling it ridiculously carefully, before tucking it in a corner of her bag like it's a phial of nitroglycerin. Even though it's nowhere near unstable.* [11:08] <Tasia> !mrooms3 [11:08] <&Hebizuka> [ Tasia ] Left door: 947 - Front door: 6896 - Right door: 7137 - Roomstyle: 346 - Enemy strength: 4 /6 [11:08] <Tasia> Right door [11:09] <&Hebizuka> *A laundry room, with its row of washing machines. Only one door ahead (!mrooms1) here. You notice more loose ammo on the floor.* [11:09] <Tasia> "More? Okay, hope it's useful this time." [11:09] * Tasia checks the ammo [11:09] <&Hebizuka> [Ammunition] .44 Magnum, FMJ, 13 rounds - Weight: 0.26 [11:11] * Tasia picks them up and offers them to any ally that wants them. [11:11] <&Hebizuka> *Again, Regi takes 'em.* [11:12] <Tasia> "Valuable trade goods!" [11:12] <Tasia> !mrooms1 [11:12] <&Hebizuka> [ Tasia ] Unique door: 4705 - Roomstyle: 222 - Enemy strength: 2 /6 [11:12] <~SU_Tempest> [Regina] Yup, yup. [11:12] * Tasia heads through the unique door. [11:13] <&Hebizuka> *The cigarette's effects end. Your vision returns to normal.* [11:13] <&Hebizuka> *A hub. Left: Bank. Right: Special Stage lobby.* [11:14] * Tasia doesn't have much use for banking at the moment... [11:14] <Tasia> Right! [11:14] <Tasia> Let's see what's in the Special Stage! [11:15] <&Hebizuka> *You reach a large, circular room, which is unique in that it has a large, transparent and circular elevator shaft dead in its center. Beside the entrance of that elevator is a computer, currently turned on, and providing the only source of light in the room; making it quite the dimly lit area...* [11:15] <Tasia> "This is a little creepy, if you ask me." [11:16] * Tasia cautiously approaches the computer, listening for any movement in the dark. [11:16] <&Hebizuka> *The computer displays a welcome message.* [11:17] <&Hebizuka> [PC] "Welcome to the Special Stage lobby area. To access challenges, please click here." [11:17] * Tasia clicks, curious. [11:18] <&Hebizuka> [PC] "This elevator shaft may allow you to reach a fighting arena where you may engage in combat under special conditions, for rewards and SS Cards. Complete all four challenges and obtain all four SS Cards, then come back here to enable the secret floor. Scroll down for the list of challenges and rewards." [11:18] <Tasia> "Does this sound interesting to you girls?" [11:19] <~SU_Tempest> [Regina] Is this a good idea?.. [11:19] <~SU_Tempest> [Akemi] Always down for action and shinies. Especially shinies. [11:19] * Tasia scolls down. "Let's see what the rewards are and if they're worth it." [11:22] <&Hebizuka> *The PC details the list:* [11:22] <&Hebizuka> NOTE: This is a BARE arena, there is NO cover available on either side. [11:22] <&Hebizuka> NOTE2: Only one challenge allowed per visit in the SS lobby. [11:22] <&Hebizuka> >Arena fighting - Face six creatures, one at a time, each one back to back without interruption, until they've all been defeated. Rewards: 500 P$, a random valuable, SS Card Bronze [11:22] <&Hebizuka> >MazePot - A slot machine randomly determines a handicap which will hinder all fighters, who are then sent fighting four creatures back to back, one at a time. Rewards: 1000 P$, 1 random supply crate, SS Card Silver [11:22] <&Hebizuka> >Big One - Fighters are pitted against two large and/or powerful creatures at once, which must be defeated to move on. Rewards: 1500 P$, crafting toolkit, three load-bearing items, SS Card Gold [11:22] <&Hebizuka> >Big One MazePot - A combination of the above two challenges; 2 large creatures to fight, with a handicap. Rewards: 1500 P$, unrestricted wish, SS Card Diamond [11:23] <Tasia> "Hoooo." [11:24] <Tasia> "I think we can take the Bronze one, with what we have now." [11:24] <Tasia> "Thoughts?" [11:25] <~SU_Tempest> [Akemi] Sure. It sounds the safest. Wouldn't want Regina to catch a scratch. *Sarcastic tone.* [11:25] <~SU_Tempest> [Regina] *Dry chuckle* Oh, ha, ha. [11:26] <Tasia> "As long as they're not goddamn crocodiles, I think we'll be okay." [11:26] <&Hebizuka> [PC] "Click on the button of the relevant color (Bronze, Silver, Gold, Diamond) to enable the challenge and unlock the elevator." [11:27] * Tasia cracks her knuckles and takes a deep breath. "Ready?" [11:27] <~SU_Tempest> [Akemi] As ever. [11:27] <~SU_Tempest> [Regina] Yup! [11:27] * Tasia clicks the Bronze button. [11:28] <&Hebizuka> *Immediately, the transparent elevator gate emits compressed air, then moves and opens, allowing you and your team to get inside and be taken to the arena.* [11:28] * Tasia steps in. [11:29] <&Hebizuka> *Your allies follow quickly. The gate then closes, sealing the elevator nicely, before it starts taking you downwards at a slow pace. The elevator now travels underneath the lobby floor and sends you through a tube. You have time to make any last preparations you wish before reaching the arena.* [11:30] * Tasia checks all her guns one last time, making sure they've got one in the chamber. [11:31] <&Hebizuka> [Brass checks] QBZ-97A: 24+1/30 - PP-19 Bizon named "Whisper": 64+1/64 - Custom 1911SS named "Infinity": 10+1/10 - Desert Eagle: 7+1/7 [11:31] * Tasia swaps a full 30-rd fmj magazine into her QBZ, with one from her vest. [11:32] <Tasia> Actually scratch that, if there's time I'll just load loose rounds to top it off. [11:33] <&Hebizuka> *Reload using what ammo type? (FMJ, AP)* [11:33] * Tasia takes 6 5.56 FMJ rounds from her boxed ammo and pops them into the magazine. [11:34] <&Hebizuka> [Reload] Norinco QBZ-97A: +7 FMJ. [30+1/30 - << 1 HP + 7 FMJ, 5 HP, 18 FMJ] [11:34] <&Hebizuka> *5.56x45mm NATO FMJ remaining: 145 in backpack* [11:36] * Tasia will rearrange them so the other HP rounds are on top. [11:36] <Tasia> Might as well be consistent! [11:36] <&Hebizuka> *You spend some time ejecting and re-arranging ammo from your magazine.* [11:36] <&Hebizuka> [Reload] Norinco QBZ-97A: Changed ammo order. Now at: [<< 1 HP + 5 HP, 25 FMJ] [11:36] <Tasia> "Bah.... if I run out of time I'll just drop this and go to the subgun." [11:37] <Tasia> Ah, cool. [11:37] <&Hebizuka> *Meanwhile, your partners have been busy reloading their own stuff.* [11:38] <~SU_Tempest> [Regina] I'm all set. [11:39] <~SU_Tempest> [Akemi] Yeah, me too. [11:39] <Tasia> "Ready here!" [11:40] <&Hebizuka> *The elevator soon comes to a stop, the gate finally opens. You reach a room where you cannot distinguish any feature other than the elevator tube, sand floor, and far-away but powerful light sources, which bathe the arena in light.* [11:41] * Tasia shoulders her QBZ and peers into the distance. [11:42] <&Hebizuka> *First creature appears!* [11:42] <Tasia> what is it? [11:43] <&Hebizuka> *You hear the raucuous battle cry of a snarling, low-pitched voice. Out of the shadows come a digger dwarf, swinging angrily a pick-axe.* [11:43] <Tasia> At least he's not *shooting* [11:43] <&Hebizuka> *No need to say he will not be reasoned down. A fight starts!* [11:43] <&Hebizuka> *Turn 1. What will you do?* [11:43] * Tasia isn't too afraid of melee-only enemies. [11:44] <Tasia> Three bursts at the head, with the QBZ. I'm not going to drop prone since I want to be able to maintain distance. [11:45] <&Hebizuka> *Regina drops on the floor with her Scout, aims down the scope with deployed bipod, and goes for a chest shot.* [11:46] <&Hebizuka> *Akemi raises her USP-45, ready to fire three rounds wherever she'll be able to.* [11:46] <&Hebizuka> *The dwarf rushes towards you, with the intent to skewer you on its pick-axe.* [11:46] <&Hebizuka> *Order: Akemi, Regina, You, Dwarf* [11:46] <&Hebizuka> *Akemi's turn...* [11:46] <&Hebizuka> @bodyaim [11:46] <MazeBot> [LIMB] Right arm [11:46] <&Hebizuka> @roll 3#2d6 [11:46] <MazeBot> Hebizuka: 7;8;8 [11:47] <&Hebizuka> *Shots 1-3: Hit, Hit, Hit.* [11:48] <&Hebizuka> *Great accuracy from the kitsune, but it did little to actually stop the dwarf. He doesn't look that badly hurt.* [11:48] <&Hebizuka> *Regina's turn...* [11:48] <&Hebizuka> @roll 2d6 [11:48] <MazeBot> Hebizuka: 8 [11:48] <&Hebizuka> *Hit!* [11:49] <&Hebizuka> *The dwarf staggers a lot more this time, visibly slowed down by the much better round and placement. He is still not dead, though; and that is where you come in!* [11:50] <&Hebizuka> *Your turn. You may roll now.* [11:50] * Tasia fires! [11:50] <Tasia> @roll 3#2d6 [11:50] <MazeBot> Tasia: 7;10;8 [11:51] <&Hebizuka> *Bursts 1-3: Miss, Hit, Hit* [11:51] <&Hebizuka> *Total 6/9 hits - 3 HP + 3 FMJ.* [11:53] <&Hebizuka> *The initial three rounds which hit were hollow-points, which expanded as soon as they struck the dwarf's cranium, then mushroomed and punched his brains out - alongside shattering the skull and expelling obscene amounts of flesh and blood. The following FMJ rounds did little more than the HPs could already: a huge mess.* [11:53] <Tasia> "Yuck. Not much left there." [11:53] <&Hebizuka> *In fact, the hits are so violent and so well placed, the majority of the dwarf's upper cranium has been completely shattered in pieces, leaving a cadaver with a hanging jaw, and a lot of tiny flying gibs.* [11:54] <&Hebizuka> Tasia [QBZ-97A] Digger dwarf /H\ [B] [11:54] <&Hebizuka> *Very, very, very much deserved [B]rutal tag.* [11:54] <Tasia> I love those. [11:54] <&Hebizuka> *1/6 creatures defeated.* [11:54] <&Hebizuka> *End of Turn 1.* [11:56] <&Hebizuka> *Second creature comes in! It appears to be a cyclops, carrying a bundle of spears in one hand, and another spear in the other hand!* [11:56] <&Hebizuka> *Turn 2. What will you do?* [11:57] <Tasia> Same thing! Three bursts at the head with the QBZ. [11:58] <&Hebizuka> *Regina doesn't move, cycles the bolt, and gets ready for a torso hit again.* [11:58] <&Hebizuka> *Akemi continues in the same vein as well, going for 4 shots.* [11:58] <&Hebizuka> *The cyclops is about to throw a spear at Akemi.* [11:59] <&Hebizuka> *Order: Akemi, Cyclops, Regina, You.* [11:59] <&Hebizuka> *Akemi's turn...* [11:59] <&Hebizuka> @bodyaim [11:59] <MazeBot> [LIMB] Right arm [11:59] <&Hebizuka> @roll 4#2d6 [11:59] <MazeBot> Hebizuka: 8;5;10;6 [11:59] <&Hebizuka> *Shots 1-4: Hit, Miss, Hit, Miss* [12:00] <&Hebizuka> *Two hits, again hitting the arm of the group's target. Like before, they seem to have little ability to stop the creature.* [12:00] <&Hebizuka> *Cyclops' turn...* [12:00] <&Hebizuka> @bodyaim [12:00] <MazeBot> [UPPER BODY] Torso (Chest, back) [12:00] <&Hebizuka> @roll 2d6 [12:00] <MazeBot> Hebizuka: 11 [12:00] <Tasia> "Akemi!" [12:01] <Tasia> ffff I hope she has some protection. [12:01] <&Hebizuka> *Akemi receives a flying pilum right in the chest. She's thrown on the back, and heavily crashes on the sand floor.* [12:02] <&Hebizuka> *To your bewilderment, she sits up, removes the spear, and gets right back up! Though it shows she suffered a bad hit.* [12:02] <&Hebizuka> *Regina's turn...* [12:02] <&Hebizuka> @roll 2d6 [12:02] <MazeBot> Hebizuka: 11 [12:03] <&Hebizuka> *Critical hit (scope-aided). The cyclops is hit by a perfectly well-placed shot in the chest, blowing right through the creature's heart.* [12:03] <Tasia> "Fuck! Akemi! are you okay?" [12:03] <&Hebizuka> *The cyclops struggles, then falls dead.* [12:04] <&Hebizuka> *Your turn is aborted, your target is dead.* [12:04] <&Hebizuka> Sgt Regina da Silva [Steyr Scout] Cyclops [12:04] <&Hebizuka> *End of Turn 2!* [12:04] <~SU_Tempest> [Akemi] Yow... Fucker got what he deserved. I'll be fine, that hurt but I'll walk away from that one... [12:05] <Tasia> "Try swapping over to the M-16." [12:05] <Tasia> "we've gotta put them down hard, can't afford to take any more hits like that." [12:05] <&Hebizuka> *Third creature comes in! It appears to be a headcrab!* [12:05] <&Hebizuka> *Turn 3. What is your next move?* [12:06] * Tasia will swap to whisper and fire 8 rounds full-auto at whatever passes for a torso. [12:07] <&Hebizuka> *You'll shoot at its center part, which is the closest thing.* [12:07] <Tasia> whatever gives the best hit chances. [12:07] <&Hebizuka> *Akemi does not follow your order and instead opens fire on the headcrab with the USP still, firing three rounds.* [12:08] <&Hebizuka> *Regina keeps her cool, cycles the bolt, and gets ready to snipe that headcrab.* [12:08] <&Hebizuka> *The headhumper shrieks and hops towards Regina's head, going to try and bite her!* [12:09] <&Hebizuka> *Order: Akemi, You, Regina, Headcrab.* [12:10] <&Hebizuka> *Akemi's turn...* [12:10] <&Hebizuka> @roll 3#2d6 [12:10] <MazeBot> Hebizuka: 6;5;7 [12:10] <&Hebizuka> *Shots 1-3: Miss, Miss, Hit.* [12:11] <&Hebizuka> *ONE round of .45 hit the headhumper, and although it mangled the creature badly, it survived - on the brink of dying but it survived.* [12:12] <&Hebizuka> *Your turn. You may roll now.* [12:12] <Tasia> @roll 8#2d6 [12:12] <MazeBot> Tasia: 9;3;11;8;8;4;8;11 [12:12] <Tasia> Overkill but what the heck. [12:12] <&Hebizuka> *Shots 1-6: Hit, Miss, Hit, Hit, Hit, Miss* [12:12] <&Hebizuka> *Shots 7-8: Hit, Hit.* [12:12] <&Hebizuka> *Total: 6/8 hits* [12:13] <Tasia> It's not like I'd know how tough they are beforehand. [12:14] <&Hebizuka> *Your bullets completely tear apart the hopping alien creature. So badly that it is literally torn apart in bloody gibs. You notice with disgust the headcrab's blood is sick yellow, and that it's now splattered over a large portion of the sand ground like a badly spilled can of paint.* [12:14] <&Hebizuka> Tasia ["Whisper"] Headcrab [B] [12:15] <Tasia> "Halfway done, team!" [12:16] <&Hebizuka> *Regina's turn is cancelled since the target is dead, and consequently the headcrab's turn is cancelled, since, well, it's no longer even EXISTING.* [12:17] <&Hebizuka> *End of Turn 3.* [12:17] <&Hebizuka> *Fourth creature comes in!* [12:18] <&Hebizuka> *A large amount of stand bubbles up. As it dissipates, a slime monster is revealed - it comes from underground, and is now ready to fight.* [12:19] <&Hebizuka> *Turn 4. What will you do?* [12:19] <Tasia> "What the shit is THAT." [12:19] <Tasia> 8-round full-auto burst from the PP-19 at its center mass. [13:19] <&Hebizuka> *Regina just... seems puzzled at how the thing can even be harmful at all.* [13:20] <~SU_Tempest> [Akemi] Don't let the appearance fool you, Regi, it's dangerous! GET A GRENADE, FAST. [13:20] <&Hebizuka> *Akemi readies her MkIIIA2, and Regi does the same with one of her own.* [13:22] <&Hebizuka> *The slime monster squirms, and seems to get ready to expel some sort of strange gas at you.* [13:22] <&Hebizuka> *Order: Regina, Akemi, You, Slime.* [13:22] <&Hebizuka> *Regina's turn...* [13:22] <&Hebizuka> @roll 2d6 [13:22] <MazeBot> Hebizuka: 8 [13:23] <&Hebizuka> *Far-hit. The grenade has managed to vaporize the slime to nearly one fifth of its original size, but it has not been fully defeated yet.* [13:24] <&Hebizuka> *Akemi's turn...* [13:24] <&Hebizuka> @roll 2d6 [13:24] <MazeBot> Hebizuka: 5 [13:24] <&Hebizuka> *Distant-hit. Despite landing poorly and far away, what little damage it did cause is seemingly enough to completely destroy the slime monster before it has a chance to spit its pheromones.* [13:25] <&Hebizuka> Akemi Hirayama [MkIIIA2] Slime monster [13:25] <&Hebizuka> *Your turn is aborted since your target is dead.* [13:25] <Tasia> "Whoah, good shooting. Glad we had those grenades, hmm?" [13:25] <&Hebizuka> *End of Turn 4.* [13:25] <~SU_Tempest> [Regina] For sure, yeah... [13:27] <&Hebizuka> *Fifth creature comes in!* [13:28] <&Hebizuka> *A hitman comes out of the shadows, wielding a silenced handgun.* [13:28] <&Hebizuka> *Turn 5. What is your next move?* [13:28] <Tasia> PP-19 whisper, 6 shots FA at his head. [13:29] <&Hebizuka> *Regina immediately transitions to her MP7A1, firing at the hitman ; four shots in semi.* [13:30] <Tasia> Not the ideal circumstances for a hitman, is it? [13:31] * Tasia lines him up in the Kobra sight [13:33] <&Hebizuka> *Meanwhile, Akemi chooses the USP again and empties the rest of her magazine on the hitman's chest.* [13:33] <&Hebizuka> *If the hitman somehow survives that, he'll aim at Regina and fire three times.* [13:34] <&Hebizuka> *Order: Hitman, Akemi, Regina, You. Amazingly enough, the hitman draws the fastest!* [13:35] <Tasia> Crap. [13:35] <Tasia> At least Regi has body armor. [13:35] <&Hebizuka> *Hitman's turn...* [13:36] <&Hebizuka> @bodyaim [13:36] <MazeBot> [UPPER BODY] Torso (Chest, back) [13:36] <&Hebizuka> @roll 3#2d6 [13:36] <MazeBot> Hebizuka: 7;12;7 [13:37] <&Hebizuka> *The muzzle report is very, very loud, the suppressor seems completely ineffective at suppressing anything; this suggests the hitman is firing insanely hot loads!* [13:37] <Tasia> Ohhhh shiiiiit [13:37] <&Hebizuka> *Shots 1-3: Hit, Critical hit, Hit* [13:40] <&Hebizuka> *Regina is struck by rounds that seem a lot more effective than they should be... She trembles before getting a chance at shooting back, and you can see three very noticeable holes in her vest, oozing blood. She is shaking in pain and appears to have been wounded.* [13:42] <&Hebizuka> *It appears that she's still very much alive though!* [13:42] <&Hebizuka> *Akemi's turn...* [13:42] <&Hebizuka> @bodyaim [13:42] <MazeBot> [LOWER BODY] Lower body (Hips, pelvis, buttocks) [13:42] <&Hebizuka> @roll 2#2d6 [13:42] <MazeBot> Hebizuka: 6;7 [13:42] <&Hebizuka> *Shots 1-2: Miss, Hit.* [13:44] <&Hebizuka> *A single round hits from the two Akemi was able to fire - her slide locks back on the second shot; signaling the USP is now empty! As for the round that did hit, it did not appear to cause significant damage to the hitman, but what it did seemingly blew open a wound which is also going to start bleeding...* [13:44] <&Hebizuka> *Regina's turn...* [13:45] <&Hebizuka> @bodyaim [13:45] <MazeBot> [LIMB] Right arm [13:45] <&Hebizuka> @roll 4#2d6 [13:45] <MazeBot> Hebizuka: 11;9;7;9 [13:45] <&Hebizuka> *Shots 1-4: Hit, Hit, Hit, Hit.* [13:48] <&Hebizuka> *Despite her injuries, Regina trucks on and scores 4 hits on the hitman's arm, riddling it with holes, each of which causing trauma and expulsing blood out of wounds. In fact, the damage done seems to be greater on the physical point of view than it is on pure trauma; the hitman's arm seems to have been damaged to the point of being disabled!* [13:50] <&Hebizuka> *And DESPITE all of that, the hitman is still alive, just in a horrible state.* [13:51] <&Hebizuka> *Your turn. You may roll now.* [13:52] <Tasia> @roll 6#2d6 [13:52] <MazeBot> Tasia: 8;8;7;5;6;7 [13:53] <&Hebizuka> *Shots 1-6, vs head, r.sight: Hit, Hit, Hit, Miss, Miss, Hit.* [13:54] <&Hebizuka> *Total 4/6* [13:55] <&Hebizuka> *Your hits bring the final amount of damage - and the most lethal amount so far - which can finally bring your opponent down, for good. The hitman's skull, struck with four rounds of 9mm Makarov, is purely and simply pierced and cracked open, with predictable results.* [13:55] <&Hebizuka> Tasia ["Whisper"] Hitman A /H\ [13:56] <Tasia> "Regina, are you okay? You got hit pretty bad there!" [13:56] <&Hebizuka> *End of Turn 5...* [13:57] <~SU_Tempest> [Regina] Oh gods, oh gods, oh gods. I'm gonna die. I'm gonna die. *Panicking.* [13:58] <Tasia> "Hang in there! Lie down and let us finish the last one, and we'll take care of you!" [13:58] <&Hebizuka> *The last creature makes an entrance!* [13:59] <Tasia> "Put some pressure on the wounds." [13:59] <&Hebizuka> *A Black Worm, a species of giant worm, comes out of burrowing, and into view!* [13:59] <Tasia> How big is this thing? [13:59] <~SU_Tempest> [Regina] OH GOD [13:59] <&Hebizuka> *Huge. It's for all intents and purposes a giant worm. Its diameter is as large as an average human is tall.* [13:59] <Tasia> Ummm. [13:59] <&Hebizuka> *It is not very long, though.* [14:00] <&Hebizuka> *Turn 6. What is your next move?* [14:01] * Tasia will take aim with her QBZ and magdump on this huge monster! [14:01] <Tasia> Full auto, 21 rounds. [14:01] <Tasia> Might take all of them to kill it. [14:01] <&Hebizuka> *I see 21+1 rounds left; will you fire 21 or 22?* [14:01] <Tasia> 22 then. [14:02] <Tasia> "Ready a grenade, Akemi!" [14:02] <&Hebizuka> *Regina hurriedly flips the full-auto switch on her MP7 and magdumps as well.* [14:06] <&Hebizuka> *Akemi does as requested and prepares her last grenade, an RGD-5, to throw it at the huge worm.* [14:06] <&Hebizuka> *The Black Worm will dive towards you, - it reveals that it indeed has a mouth, that its maw is enormous and disgusting, and that it wants to gnaw something off of you!* [14:09] <&Hebizuka> *Order: Akemi, Regina, You, BlackWorm* [14:09] <&Hebizuka> *Akemi's turn...* [14:09] <&Hebizuka> @roll 2d6 [14:09] <MazeBot> Hebizuka: 6 [14:12] <&Hebizuka> *Distant-hit. The grenade has not landed close enough to cause significant damage on the blast alone. However, it has produced fragmentation - 12 pieces of shrapnel strike the monstrous annelid creature.* [14:13] <&Hebizuka> *Unfortunately, while it did cause some semblance of visible damage, the creature is far from stopped.* [14:13] <&Hebizuka> *Regina's turn.* [14:13] <&Hebizuka> @roll 16#2d6 [14:13] <MazeBot> Hebizuka: 9;4;5;4;6;9;9;10;7;6;4;9;9;11;4;8 [14:14] <&Hebizuka> *Shots 1-6: Hit, Miss, Miss, Miss, Miss, Hit* [14:14] <&Hebizuka> *Shots 7-12: Hit, Hit, Miss, Miss, Miss, Hit* [14:14] <&Hebizuka> *Shots 13-16: Hit, Hit, Miss, Miss* [14:15] <&Hebizuka> *Total: 7/16 hits* [14:16] <&Hebizuka> *The creature finds itself pierced with seven tiny holes. Tiny, but full of energy and deep penetrating!* [14:17] <&Hebizuka> *Is it a miracle, a big bad streak of dumb luck, or was it your destiny? No-one for sure can tell, but it seems the black worm's onslaught has been slowed, and even stopped by Regina's desperation magdump. The creature crashes on the floor, its wounds oozing what you think is green blood, as it stops dead, no longer moving.* [14:17] <&Hebizuka> Sgt Regina da Silva [MP7A1] Black Worm [14:18] * Tasia crouches down next to Regina and starts taking off her vest to look at her wounds. [14:19] <Tasia> "Arright, I've got you. Easy now." [14:19] <&Hebizuka> *End of fight! (6 turns)* [14:20] <Tasia> "We've got medical supplies, so you're gonna be okay." [14:21] <&Hebizuka> *Regina is a shaking mess. She immediately lets herself crash on the floor, lying on her back, letting you examine her wounds.* [14:21] <&Hebizuka> *She appears to have lost a significant but non-threatening amount of blood. She has an open wound to the chest, and is in serious pain.* [14:21] <&Hebizuka> *At least, those are the obvious telltales.* [14:23] * Tasia gets out a FAK and tries using it to dig the bullets out and stich her up. "Akemi, can you give me a hand here?" [14:23] <&Hebizuka> *Akemi drops to her knees and tries to ignore her own, but lesser amount of pain, to try and provide help.* [14:24] <&Hebizuka> *Regina is wheezing extremely rapidly, her facial expression being a transfixed mix of pain and fear.* [14:24] <&Hebizuka> *Apply FAK to Regina's torso?* [14:24] <Tasia> "Akemi.... are you okay yourself? I saw you take a hit back there, it looked brutal." [14:24] <Tasia> Yes. [14:25] <~SU_Tempest> [Akemi] I'm a youkai, I'll be fine. [14:25] <&Hebizuka> *You are able to treat regina's damage; she will now heal her torso damage over time. 1 FAK remaining in backpack.* [14:25] * Tasia gets out her oxycodone pill and gives it to Regina too. [14:26] <Tasia> "This'll cut down the pain, though it'll make you woozy too." [14:26] <~SU_Tempest> [Akemi] Now we need a bandage to close that nasty wound, or else she's gonna piss red. [14:26] <Tasia> "Got one!" [14:26] * Tasia takes out her bandage and applies that too. [14:26] <&Hebizuka> *Regina happily takes the oxycodone pill, before being bandaged.* [14:28] <&Hebizuka> *Regina is no longer bleeding.* [14:28] <&Hebizuka> *She seems to have calmed down a bit already, but it's pretty clear she looks like shit.* [14:29] <~SU_Tempest> [Regina] Oh, fuck, oh, fuck. I didn't think it'd hurt so much. Oh fuck. [14:29] <~SU_Tempest> [Regina] D-did we win? Was that the last huge monster? [14:29] <Tasia> "You're going to be okay. That guy was a right *bastard* though." [14:29] <Tasia> "Yeah, we won. You tore the hell out of the last one." [14:30] <~SU_Tempest> [Akemi] Speaking of. Can we check that hitguy's handgun? [14:30] <Tasia> "Yeah, good idea. Let's pick up all we can." [14:30] <Tasia> "Regi, go ahead and lie there for a while and rest." [14:32] <Tasia> "Shit. I feel like it's my fault you got hit, I wasn't quick enough." [14:32] <~SU_Tempest> [Regina] NO! *Screams out.* [14:32] * Tasia whips around, PP-19 in hand! [14:33] <~SU_Tempest> [Regina] NO! No! I mean, no... It's not your fault! It's just... [14:33] <~SU_Tempest> [Regina] Agh. I-it's not your f-fault, okay?... [14:33] <Tasia> "...." "Okay." [14:34] <Tasia> "Hey, you did well. Both of you." [14:34] <~SU_Tempest> [Regina] I was in the way, i-it's me that fuck wanted to sh-shoot, and ... t-that's it! Thanks for k-keeping me alive and dragging l-little old me around, by the w-way... oh god, I need to s-slow down... [14:35] * Tasia grabs her hand. "Ssshh. Just rest and let the painkiller do its work." [14:35] <&Hebizuka> *Akemi digs out the hitman's weapon.* [14:35] <&Hebizuka> [Weapon] Class 3 - Beretta M9 pistol | 9x19mm Parabellum - Semi-auto | Silencer | Beretta 92 series 15-round mag, +1 | Weight: 3 - [11+1/15, 12x +P++] - Cond: Excellent / Clns: Clean [14:38] <~SU_Tempest> [Akemi] Is he retarded? Those things make silencers useless! [14:38] <Tasia> (to Akemi) "Anything else useful out there?" [14:38] <&Hebizuka> *The elevator gate opens again, ready to carry you back up.* [14:39] <~SU_Tempest> [Akemi] Aside from a pile of old spears and a pick-axe, nothing we can use... [14:39] <Tasia> "Okay. Let's get back up there and just rest a while." [14:40] <Tasia> "Are you feeling well enough to make it to the elevator, Regi?" [14:41] <~SU_Tempest> [Regina] I think... [14:42] * Tasia helps her up and half-carries her over to the elevator. [14:42] <&Hebizuka> *Akemi helps, the both of you carry your wounded Soldier friend to the elevator. As soon as you're all in, you begin your way back up.* [14:43] <~SU_Tempest> [Regina] Fuck, man.. [14:43] <~SU_Tempest> [Regina] I'm all out of ammo for the MP7 now... [14:44] <Tasia> "You've still got that RAK, right?" [14:44] <~SU_Tempest> [Regina] Yea, yea... I'll switch to it in a moment. Let's get out that tube first... [14:44] <Tasia> "No worries." [14:45] <&Hebizuka> *The elevator ride ends. Your rewards await on the lobby's floor.* [14:45] <Tasia> "This DAMN WELL better be good." [14:45] <&Hebizuka> *Akemi kept the hitman's Beretta in her hand. She decides to salvage the ammunition, but leave the gun and magazine behind.* [14:47] <&Hebizuka> *You find these on the floor:* [14:48] <&Hebizuka> [Money] 500 P$ [14:48] <&Hebizuka> [Money] 225 P$ [14:48] <&Hebizuka> [Key Item] SS Card Bronze [14:48] * Tasia takes the $225 and splits the rest with $250 to each ally. Also takes the card and clips it to her belt. [14:49] <Tasia> "Umm. At least we can buy fresh ammo?" [14:49] <Tasia> "Yay?" [14:49] <~SU_Tempest> [Regina] *unconvincing* yaaay. [14:49] <~SU_Tempest> [Akemi] Least we didn't do this for nothin' [14:49] <&Hebizuka> *Total money carried: 1259 P$* [14:50] <Tasia> "And a card too, so we're closer to more rewards if we ever want to risk that again." [14:50] <&Hebizuka> *Next special room at the 154th. !mrooms3 to resume.* [14:51] <Tasia> "But really, FUCK that hitman." [14:51] <~SU_Tempest> [Regina] He got his comeuppance. We destroyed his face. [14:52] <Tasia> "Remind me to thank whoever it was that made your vest." [14:52] <Tasia> "If it hadn't been for that...." [14:52] <~SU_Tempest> [Regina] I dunno who made it, but the military issued it to me... I really wish I had something tough inside of it though... bleeding and feeling like your chest is blown open is NOT funny... [14:53] <Tasia> "You do have something tough inside of it. You." [14:53] <~SU_Tempest> [Regina] Heehee. Thanks, Tasia. [14:53] <Tasia> "But I get your point, some extra plating would be good." [14:54] <Tasia> Hokay, reloading time. [14:55] * Tasia opens her pack and digs out.... one 40mm HE for Akemi's launcher to replace the one she used, for starts. [14:55] <Tasia> "How big is your USP magazine again?" [14:56] * Tasia will hand her enough .45 HP to fill it and +1 [14:57] <Tasia> Then, load her empty STANAG magazine with 30 loose AP rounds and pop it in the QBZ [14:58] <Tasia> Finally, top off Whisper with 14 Mak rounds [14:58] <~SU_Tempest> [Akemi] Uh, the USP's got a 12 round mag. [14:59] <~SU_Tempest> [Akemi] I don't need the 40mm, I didn't use the grenade launcher. I've been wasting my hand grenades instead, remember? [14:59] <Tasia> I'll... I'll just take it out, refill it, and swap with an AP one. [14:59] <Tasia> "Ah, right. Well anyway." [15:00] <&Hebizuka> *Passed 13x .45 ACP, HP to Akemi. Total remaining in backpack: 5.* [15:01] <&Hebizuka> [Reload] Norinco QBZ-97A: +9x FMJ. Now at [30+1/30, 31x FMJ] [15:02] <&Hebizuka> *5.56x45mm NATO FMJ remaining: 136 in backpack* [15:05] * Tasia stumbles on an Eotech reflex sight in her pack that she forgot she had, and checks to see if it'll fit Akemi's M-16. [15:05] <Tasia> Or anything else. [15:06] <&Hebizuka> [Reload] Norinco QBZ-97A: Mag swap. To tacvest: [30/30, 30x FMJ]. To weapon: [30/30, 30x AP] [15:06] <&Hebizuka> *QBZ-97A now at [<< 1 FMJ + 30 AP].* [15:07] <&Hebizuka> *The EOTech 553 appears compatible with Regina's MP7A1.* [15:07] <Tasia> Ah, there we go then. [15:07] <~SU_Tempest> [Regina] Thanks... I just hope we can find ammo for it. [15:08] <Tasia> "All the bells and whistles anyone can ask for, and no ammunition for it." [15:08] <Tasia> "Isn't it amazing?" [15:08] <~SU_Tempest> [Regina] I know, right?... *She installs the EOTech on her service weapon anyway.* [15:08] * Tasia chuckles. [15:09] <~SU_Tempest> [Akemi] You guys ready to go? [15:09] <Tasia> "We should probably take a while to rest before continuing." [15:10] <Tasia> "I mean, you've both taken a beating." [15:10] <~SU_Tempest> [Akemi] Agh, fine, fine. But I don't wanna stay here longer. [15:10] <Tasia> "Well, shall we keep going until we find a better place?" [15:10] <~SU_Tempest> [Regina] G-good idea, yeah... [15:11] <Tasia> "Okay." [15:12] * Tasia helps Regina up again, making sure that she's not TOO wobbly on her feet. [15:12] <~SU_Tempest> *The Sergeant has now regained enough composure to be able to stand without shaking too much.* [15:13] <Tasia> !mrooms3 [15:13] <&Hebizuka> [ Tasia ] Left door: 3508 - Front door: 344 - Right door: 4201 - Roomstyle: 305 - Enemy strength: 2 /6 [15:13] <Tasia> Front door, I guess! [15:15] <&Hebizuka> *A regular, featureless room. This room is apparently completely empty, which is quite anticlimactic. [15:15] <Tasia> !mrooms3 [15:15] <&Hebizuka> [ Tasia ] Left door: 6904 - Front door: 7187 - Right door: 7397 - Roomstyle: 437 - Enemy strength: 4 /6 [15:16] * Tasia crosses and keeps going... Front door again. [15:17] <&Hebizuka> *Regina is forced to stop. Her face suddenly turned pale.* [15:18] <Tasia> "Hey. Are you okay?" [15:18] <~SU_Tempest> [Regina] Ugh... I think... I think I'm gonna... [15:18] <~SU_Tempest> *She turns around, rushes to a corner... and suddenly throws up. Akemi turns her head in disgust.* [15:19] <Tasia> "Yeah, that's the painkiller. Better than the alternative." [15:19] <~SU_Tempest> *Your military friend feels even more miserable.* [15:19] <~SU_Tempest> [Regina] Oh gods, I am so, so sorry... [15:19] <Tasia> "Take it slow, now." [15:20] <&Hebizuka> *She stumbles forwards, following you towards the next room.* [15:21] <&Hebizuka> *A shooting range, with its shooting lanes. Nobody is presently using them though... You notice a wooden box containing a few items, one of which appears shiny.* [15:21] * Tasia approaches the box and peers inside. [15:22] <&Hebizuka> [Weapon] Class 4 - MkII fragmentation grenade. May send between 0 and 16 shrapnel on targets upon exploding. Weight: 1/item - (Quantity: 3) [15:22] <&Hebizuka> [Valuable] Metal - Platinum wire - Value 100-750 P$ (1d651 +99) - Weight: 0.1 [15:23] * Tasia hands the grenade to Akemi and checks to see if she has room for the wire. [15:23] <&Hebizuka> *There are three grenades!* [15:23] <Tasia> Ah! [15:23] <&Hebizuka> *Current backpack/main space is 47.38/50; you can carry the wire.* [15:24] <Tasia> Does Regina have room for grenades? [15:24] <&Hebizuka> *Regina has 3 grenades equipped, thus can only carry one, while Akemi no longer has any equipped and can carry up to four. Both of them have enough backpack space to spare all three, though.* [15:25] * Tasia hands one to Regina and two to Akemi, then, [15:25] <&Hebizuka> *They all equip the distributed boomies happily.* [15:25] <Tasia> And stuffs the wire into her pack. [15:26] <~SU_Tempest> [Akemi] This must be pretty valuable stuff. [15:26] <&Hebizuka> [Pack/Main] 48.38/50 [15:27] <Tasia> "I suppose so - I know that mining it from asteroids was a pretty big business back in my previous life." [15:27] <Tasia> "That and other heavy metals that are rare planetside." [15:29] <Tasia> !mrooms3 [15:29] <&Hebizuka> [ Tasia ] Left door: 3561 - Front door: 5868 - Right door: 392 - Roomstyle: 179 - Enemy strength: 5 /6 [15:29] <~SU_Tempest> [Regina] I'd love to see what your world was like! [15:30] <Tasia> "A lot of empty, lonely nothing up there. But the colonies were nice, some of them." [15:31] <Tasia> "And when you're in orbit, you get a pretty nice view." [15:31] <~SU_Tempest> [Akemi] Oh um, Tasia, excuse me but, which door do we take? [15:31] <~SU_Tempest> [Regina] In orbit?! Woaaah, like the space shows on TV! [15:31] <Tasia> "Ah.... let's keep going straight, I suppose." [15:31] <Tasia> Front door. [15:32] <&Hebizuka> *A radio room, with a @radio, predictably enough. There is only one door ahead (!mrooms1). An object can be seen on the floor, which should be familiar enough for you.* [15:33] <Tasia> "Yeah - they probably got a lot wrong though. A lot of the old films did, before interplanetary travel got common enough. It wasn't quite like how the folks at home wanted it to be." [15:33] * Tasia looks at the object. [15:33] <&Hebizuka> [Meds] Cigarette (required lighter or fire source to use) - Suppressed hunger, FT+1 for 2d6 turns, Libido -1d10 - Weight: 0.1 [15:33] * Tasia takes it! [15:34] <~SU_Tempest> [Akemi] You sure love your cigs, huh? [15:34] <Tasia> "It's more of a complicated relationship." [15:35] <Tasia> "They taste a little nasty compared to an inhaler." [15:35] <~SU_Tempest> *Regina turns the radio on. [15:35] <~SU_Tempest> @radio [15:35] <MazeBot> [Talk radio] Ballistic - All things weapons, ammo and gear, as well as good purchasing deals, maintenance tips, and gear selection hints [15:35] * Tasia decides to listen in for a bit. [15:36] <Tasia> Relevant info. [15:42] <&Hebizuka> [Radio] ...as with all things in life, you can't do with just one flavor. So, today, we will talk about the Mazes' favorite rifle platform, the AR-15. Many, many listeners own a variant, and more than a few have gotten theirs customized. Today, we will talk about one of my personal favorite configurations, one you can ask to your local workshop and come out happy! [15:42] <&Hebizuka> *Listen more?* [15:42] <Tasia> eh, why not. [15:44] <&Hebizuka> [Radio] Here is my favorite recipe for a light, powerful carbine you can carry around anywhere, and still have all the firepower you've ever asked for! AR-15 with 5.56 barrel, threaded, with 4150CS+TiN barrel, flat top receiver, semi/full selector, subcarbine configuration, with RIS quad rails. [15:45] <&Hebizuka> [Radio] As for accessories, stick on a muzzle brake, EOTech reflex sight, foregrip, laser sight, a good old 30 round magazine, and ideally, AP ammunition, and you have a pocket dragon destroyer! Don't thank me, and make the best investment in your life! [15:46] <Tasia> "I'm not sure I see the point of a subcarbine for AP work, but okay." [15:46] <Tasia> !mrooms1 [15:46] <&Hebizuka> [ Tasia ] Unique door: 1200 - Roomstyle: 234 - Enemy strength: 1 /6 [15:47] <Tasia> Might as well go forward. [15:51] <Tasia> Unique door. [15:58] <&Hebizuka> *You make it inside a regular, featureless room, where a gun shop has been set up.* [15:58] <Tasia> "Hey, here we go. Let's see what they have!" [15:59] <Tasia> "Hello, may we examine your fine wares?" [15:59] <~SU_Tempest> [Shopkeep] Certainly, here is my list.

[16:02] <~SU_Tempest> [Shopkeep] Oh man, you guys are looking for 4.6mm? I haven't stocked that in a while. It's hard to get, I'll give you that. [16:03] <Tasia> "Well, we have a nice MP7 with all sorts of accessories, and just used up our last ammunition for it." [16:04] <Tasia> "On the plus side, we can stock up on ammo for some of our other guns." [16:06] <Tasia> "Unless.... Regina, you could always trade off your RAK for the UMP-40, and swap the accessories over to that." [16:08] <Tasia> "No rifles that have attachment points and use STANAG magazines either, so I'm not going to trade off my QBZ." [16:08] <Tasia> "Well, I have a little bit of stuff that I can sell..." [16:10] * Tasia sets down: [16:10] <Tasia> [Valuable] Metal - Gold cuff link - Value 50-165 P$ (1d116 +49) - Weight: 0.1 [16:10] <Tasia> [Valuable] Metal - Platinum wire - Value 100-750 P$ (1d651 +99) - Weight: 0.1 [16:10] <Tasia> "Would you be interested in buying these?" [16:10] <~SU_Tempest> [Regina] Actually... An UMP-40 does sound nice. We'll have less problems for ammo... Oh how I wish I hadn't listened to that armorer... "The MP7 is this, the MP7 is that, it's a wunderwaffe..." Dang. [16:11] <Tasia> "Hey, it did perform really well." [16:11] <Tasia> "It's a shame there's no hand-loading equipment around here, eh?" [16:12] <~SU_Tempest> [Shopkeep] You thought about it too? I'd love to make my own ammo. But if it was possible, I'd be out of a job since we sell the ammo in the first place! [16:13] <Tasia> "Nah, just sell the bullets and powder and jack up the profit margin." [16:13] <Tasia> "But anyway..." [16:14] <Tasia> "If you're interested in buying gold and platinum, there's that. I think we might have some spare guns too." [16:15] <~SU_Tempest> [Shopkeep] I'll certainly buy your valuables. Lemme scan them and see their value... We'll take care of the sales first, yeah? Then the purchases. [16:15] <Tasia> "Regi, if you want to strip down your M7 and RAK and sell those for the UMP-40, now's the time." [16:15] <Tasia> MP7* [16:16] <Tasia> "You have a magazine to sell too, right?" [16:18] <~SU_Tempest> [Regina] Oh, yeah, I have an extra mag. [16:19] <~SU_Tempest> [Shopkeep] OK so, gold cuff link, platinum wire, an MP7 plus accessories and a magazine... that's all for sales? [16:21] <Tasia> "How about the RAK? Unless you want to hang onto it." [16:21] <Tasia> "I don't think it'd be any better than the alternatives." [16:24] <~SU_Tempest> [Regina] Sure, I'll sell it too. Might as well, .40 is better than nine mak... [16:26] <Tasia> "I'll take the ammo though." [16:26] <Tasia> "I only like Makarov because I can spam a lot of it at once and it's cheap." [16:26] <~SU_Tempest> [Regina] Oh, sure thing. [16:26] * Tasia pats Whisper. [16:26] <&Hebizuka> *She unloads the RAK, and passes you this:* [16:26] <&Hebizuka> [Ammunition] 9x18mm Makarov, FMJ, 15 rounds - Weight: 0.15 [16:27] * Tasia adds it to her collection. [16:29] <&Hebizuka> *Total carried: 253 in backpack* [16:29] <~SU_Tempest> [Shopkeep] Will that be all you're selling? [16:31] * Tasia doesn't see any other odds and ends to sell here on her list. [16:33] <~SU_Tempest> *Regina has none, and Akemi doesn't need to do any shopping.* [16:33] <~SU_Tempest> [Shopkeep] Okay, and as for purchases. The lady wants the UMP-40, but what else will you have? [16:37] <Tasia> "A little more 5.56 can't hurt, same with more .40 for her." [16:39] <~SU_Tempest> [Shopkeep] 5.56, I got five boxes of 20, and as for .40 S&W, I got 5 too, 50 rounds each. How much will it be? [16:39] <Tasia> "Depends on how much we can afford, I suppose." [16:40] <Tasia> "Probably gonna want all of the .40 though." [16:40] <~SU_Tempest> [Shopkeep] 1 box of 5.56 is 60 P$, and 1 box of .40 S&W is 75 P$. [16:41] <Tasia> "Let's call it two boxes of 5.56 for the moment." [16:43] <~SU_Tempest> [Shopkeep] No probs. Nothing else? [16:43] <~SU_Tempest> [Shopkeep] It might be a fair amount of cash on the sales so don't hesitate - unless you actually want the money, haha! [16:44] <Tasia> "errr, what accessories did we take off of the MP7 that'll fit on the UMP-40?" [16:44] <Tasia> "we should get a muzzlebrake or silencer for it, at least." [16:45] <~SU_Tempest> [Shopkeep] Well... None fit. The UMP-40 has no rails at all. I THINK the Customs can get you some fitted, though. If you'd like I won't buy back the reflex sight, laser sight and weaponlight if you'd prefer keeping em. [16:45] <Tasia> "Hmmm!" [16:46] <Tasia> "Well, will those fit on any other weapons we have?" [16:46] * Tasia eyes the M-16 [16:46] <&Hebizuka> *The M16A1 is not compatible with any of these accessories.* [16:47] <Tasia> "I vote we keep the accessories." [16:47] <~SU_Tempest> [Regina] Y-yeah. Me too. I want em back too. [16:47] <~SU_Tempest> *The shopkeep then hands them back to Regi, who proceeds to add them to her inventory.* [16:48] <Tasia> "I could swap the laser sight on my 1911 for the weapon light, though, since it might be more useful, in the meantime." [16:48] <Tasia> "But, ummm..... Toss in a muzzle brake for the UMP too." [16:49] <~SU_Tempest> [Regina] Oh please, please can I keep my laser sight? I can't wait to be able to use it again... [16:50] <Tasia> "Of course." [16:50] <Tasia> "Actually, do you have another weapon light for sale? Having two might be good." [16:50] <~SU_Tempest> [Regina] So, a brake, and I also want two spare mags for the UMP. And uhh.. I'll pay for two boxes of ammo. [16:51] <~SU_Tempest> [Shopkeeper] I might. Looking for a model fitting on a handgun? [16:51] <Tasia> "As long as you have one that'll fit a railed 1911..." [16:52] * Tasia takes out her Infinity and detaches the laser sight. [16:52] <Tasia> "Yeah, if you ahve a light that'll fit here." [16:52] <~SU_Tempest> [Shopkeeper] Lemme check. [16:54] <~SU_Tempest> [Shopkeeper] I in fact do. Inforce APL or Surefire X300U. The former is a bit cheaper but the latter has a more powerful light. [16:55] <Tasia> "How's the battery usage?" [16:55] <~SU_Tempest> [Shopkeeper] Battery lasts longer on the APL, as a counterbalance for having weaker light than the X300. [16:55] <Tasia> "I'll take the APL then." [16:55] <~SU_Tempest> [Shopkeeper] Comes with a free full battery! [16:55] <~SU_Tempest> [Shopkeeper] Will that be all? [16:56] <Tasia> "I believe so, for now." [16:57] <Tasia> "So the gun and mags, the light, muzzle brake, all the .40 ammo, and two boxes of 5.56, I think."
