Log:Session 67 (Meta, no ontology)

From Mazeworld

[14:06] <&Hebizuka> *Welcome back to the Mazes, Jonah. You have visited 264 rooms. Next special room at the 270th. You are currently in minor pain but otherwise relatively healthy. You feel noticeably stronger than usual as well. Your allies seem all a-ok, Carolyn in particular looks like she's ready for anything.* [14:07] <&Hebizuka> *!mrooms3 to resume.* [14:08] <Jonah> !mrooms3 [14:08] <&Hebizuka> [ Jonah ] Left door: 5472 - Front door: 3408 - Right door: 154 - Roomstyle: 433 - Enemy strength: 6 /6 [14:08] * Jonah keeps the sinking feeling in her chest to herself as she heads through the front door. [14:12] <&Hebizuka> *You no longer feel nauseous.* [14:14] <&Hebizuka> *You make it inside a storage area, with its piles of boxes of all kinds, but mostly cardboard and mostly all empty... except for one supply crate which is curiously marked "ALGERIA".* [14:17] <Jonah> "Uh. Since when did Mazeworld do imports from alternate realities?" [14:17] <~SU_Tempest> [Raider] Considering you are present, since forever. [14:18] * Jonah approaches the crate very cautiously, gently prodding at the thing to make sure it's safe before opening it. [14:18] <Jonah> Mmm. I think I'm more of a knock-off brand. What's to say there isn't a real Jonah who's living it up in Heaven? [14:18] <&Hebizuka> *It is safe. It is a supply crate that is begging to be opened. Figuratively.* [14:18] <~SU_Tempest> [Carolyn] They wouldn't want you in heaven! [14:19] <~SU_Tempest> [Carolyn] I'd figure your fate is to be a lecherous demigod just so they don't have you bothering the pretty angels. *Giggling, obviously trying to make a joke.* [14:20] * Jonah goes right ahead and opens it. [14:20] <Jonah> Carolyn, don't get me started on the Thunderbolt Maidens. I've seen them in action, and a better group of sexy asskickers you'll never meet. [14:22] * Jonah starts on them anyway. "They're the angels responsible for making sure a Paladin doesn't stray. Whenever it's time for an audit, they jump down from the Heavens and crash down to the surface. It's awe-inspiring, truly~ [14:22] <Jonah> " [14:24] <Jonah> What are the angels like here? You said they were pretty, but what else? [14:24] <&Hebizuka> =ALGERIA crate= [14:24] <&Hebizuka> [Weapon] Class 2 - MAT-49 submachine gun | 9x19mm Parabellum - Full-auto | Foregrip(I) | MAT-49 32-round mag, no +1 | Weight: 5 - [32/32, 32x FMJ] - Cond: 100% (Brand new) / Clns: 99% (Perfect) [14:24] <&Hebizuka> [Weapon accessory] Magazine: MAT-49 32-round magazine. Size tier: Small ; Weight: 0.5 [14:24] <&Hebizuka> [Weapon accessory] Magazine: MAT-49 32-round magazine. Size tier: Small ; Weight: 0.5 [14:24] <&Hebizuka> [Weapon accessory] Magazine: MAT-49 32-round magazine. Size tier: Small ; Weight: 0.5 [14:24] <&Hebizuka> [Weapon accessory] Magazine: MAT-49 32-round magazine. Size tier: Small ; Weight: 0.5 [14:24] <&Hebizuka> [Weapon accessory] Magazine: MAT-49 32-round magazine. Size tier: Small ; Weight: 0.5 [14:24] <&Hebizuka> [Ammunition] 9x19mm Parabellum, FMJ, 160 rounds - Weight: 1.6 [14:24] <~SU_Tempest> [Raider] I don't know about angels but I know something pretty when I see it. *Looking inside the crate.* [14:25] <Jonah> I hope one of you can carry this because I sure as hell can't. [14:26] <Jonah> And we filled up on dragon meat too. Ugh - if one of you want to dump it for the gun and ammo, go right ahead. [14:28] <~SU_Tempest> [Raider] Sorry, i'm all full here. But I can make space for the ammo at least. [14:29] <Jonah> Sure. And hand over the meat you're tossing to make room, I'll eat it. [14:32] <~SU_Tempest> *He passes you two pieces of Aer Dragon meat.* [14:32] <~SU_Tempest> *...Then realizes he may need more space, so he passes you a third.* [14:32] <~SU_Tempest> *Then, the merc unloads the MAT, and grabs all 192 rounds of ammo.* [14:33] <~SU_Tempest> [Raider] There. [14:33] * Jonah throws them right into her mouth and starts chewing. [14:34] <&Hebizuka> *You stuff yourself with the offered raw food. It's nutritious, but not terribly great for your stomach.* [14:34] <Jonah> If I vomit I'm going to regret everything. [14:34] <Jonah> !mrooms3 [14:34] <&Hebizuka> [ Jonah ] Left door: 476 - Front door: 1343 - Right door: 5356 - Roomstyle: 159 - Enemy strength: 5 /6 [14:34] <Jonah> So, Carolyn - how are the angels here? [14:34] * Jonah heads through the front door in the meantime, leading them onward to adventure! [14:34] <&Hebizuka> *You thankfully do not feel nauseous again, though.* [14:35] <Jonah> *Hooray!* [14:36] <~SU_Tempest> [Carolyn] Angels? They're messengers of the Gods. It's said there are some roaming in the Mazes to combat demonic presence, but I've never seen one before. [14:37] <Jonah> Awww - that hurts, Carolyn. What about me~? [14:37] <~SU_Tempest> [Carolyn] You? *chuckle* You're pretty but you're no angel. [14:37] <~SU_Tempest> *She smiles as honestly as ever, though.* [14:37] <&Hebizuka> *A messy kitchen. There is no chef around, just a lot of dried blood pretty much everywhere, even on the fridge, the stoves, and inside the sink. You notice an accessory on the ground, as well as a lot of empty, red colored shotgun shells.* [14:38] * Jonah cuddles up closer to the miko, giving into the urge to nuzzle into the brown woman's shoulder. "But I'm a messenger of the gods, and I've combated demonic pres...ences." [14:38] <Jonah> Well. That's a bit of a downer. Do the kitchen stoves still work? [14:39] <~SU_Tempest> [Carolyn] Sure you do. [14:39] <~SU_Tempest> *The stoves appear to be out of order.* [14:40] <Jonah> There goes the cooking plan. [14:41] * Jonah sighs, lettng go of Carolyn to check out the accessory. [14:41] <&Hebizuka> [Weapon accessory] Magazine: Saiga-12 20-round drum. Size tier: V.Large ; Weight: 2+0.05 (2.05) - [1/20, 1x Buck] [14:41] <&Hebizuka> *Coincidentally, all the empty shells in the room are also - WERE also - buckshot.* [14:41] <&Hebizuka> *Someone must have been shooting and reloading in a hurry.* [14:42] * Jonah shrugs, and takes the 1x buckshot to add to her ammo pile. [14:42] <Jonah> !mrooms3 [14:42] <&Hebizuka> [ Jonah ] Left door: 7408 - Front door: 2547 - Right door: 1126 - Roomstyle: 123 - Enemy strength: 3 /6 [14:42] <&Hebizuka> *Place in vest or pack?* [14:42] <Jonah> *Pack* [14:42] <&Hebizuka> *Total 12 gauge buckshot carried: 84 in backpack* [14:42] <Jonah> But, Carolyn, it's totally true! The gods acted through me when I was punishing that naughty miko! [14:42] <&Hebizuka> [Pack/Main] 58.39/60 [14:43] * Jonah continues to taut the gods' faith in her as she goes through the front door. [14:43] <Jonah> tout* [14:43] <~SU_Tempest> [Carolyn] But you still can't be an angel! [14:43] <Jonah> But you've never seen one before! How could you know for sure? [14:44] <~SU_Tempest> [Carolyn] Religious stories and scriptures, silly. I know angels are born as such, and remain as such. You can't become one. [14:46] <Jonah> Ahaha. I guess your scriptures don't have the story of Enoch, then? Because that one was all about someone becoming an angel through his love and faith in the gods. [14:47] <&Hebizuka> *You get inside ANOTHER kitchen, this time everything looks much cleaner and in order. But still no chef. There appears to be nothing of use here.* [14:47] <Jonah> Come on, stoves! [14:47] <&Hebizuka> *Those stoves work, though.* [14:47] <&Hebizuka> *Turn them on?* [14:47] <Jonah> Work for momma Jonah, come on - YES. [14:47] <Jonah> Carolyn, Ayako, Raider? It's time to cook! [14:47] <Jonah> *Turn 'em on!* [14:48] <&Hebizuka> *The stoves emit a bright blue flame, ready to set things on fire... or heat up platters, pots, and pans.* [14:48] <~SU_Tempest> [Raider] I really wish I had a cigarette right now. [14:49] <Jonah> Those will kill you, you know. Cancer's hands down one of the shittiest ways to go. [14:49] <Jonah> *How long'll it take to cook all the meat?* [14:51] <&Hebizuka> *1 turn per piece of meat.* [14:52] <Jonah> This'll take a while. But hey, we can just eat the meat if we're hungry. [14:52] <Jonah> Guys, let's start cooking all of this up. [14:52] <~SU_Tempest> [Raider] I'm a merc, Jonah. I don't need a health lesson, I know that it's lead and copper strategically placed in either my head or my chest that will kill me, not something I should hardly care about in my sixties. [14:52] <~SU_Tempest> [Carolyn] Yeah yeah yeah yeah. Let's eat! [14:55] <&Hebizuka> *Carolyn carries 24 pieces of aer dragon raw meat, while Raider carries 17 aer dragon pieces and 4 cerberus pieces, all raw. Cooking the totality of these requires 45 turns and someone manning the stoves.* [14:55] <&Hebizuka> *Which of you desire to do the cooking?* [14:56] <Jonah> *Me, of course! I'm even going to dress up in my Maid uniform for this!* [14:57] <&Hebizuka> *Swap shirt with tie with maid suit?* [14:57] <Jonah> *Yup yup.* [15:00] <&Hebizuka> *Clothing swapped! You now look like a (heavily armored) maid.* [15:02] * Jonah prances about in her clean apron for a bit for Raider and Carolyn's entertainment, before getting down and dirty with the meat sizzling. [15:03] <&Hebizuka> *You may chatter with your allies while the meat cooks.* [15:04] <Jonah> So... uhm. [15:04] <~SU_Tempest> [Raider] I'll be honest, I've been wishing for a homemade meal since ages, though. [15:04] <Jonah> I'll be honest, I have no idea what I'm doing on this adventure. [15:04] <~SU_Tempest> [Raider] As much as it is weird for my employer to cook for me, sincere thanks for doing that. [15:05] <Jonah> Haha. When you're on the road in the wilderness, you learn really fast how to gather and cook. A stove's easier to use than a firepit to boot. [15:05] <Jonah> You want this well down or rare? [15:06] <~SU_Tempest> [Raider] I'll admit I know how to cook. I just suck at it and tend to prefer using my job cash for burgers or fast food. [15:07] <~SU_Tempest> [Raider] And look at me. Not an inchling of fat. I'm a spaghetti stick. I don't get it, sometimes. [15:07] <&Hebizuka> *Raider, despite being 66, actually looks pretty athletic.* [15:08] <Jonah> That probably has something to do with lugging around huge bundles of weight for anyone willing to hire you. Also, adrenalin. [15:08] <~SU_Tempest> [Raider] Maybe, yeah. [15:08] * Jonah very wisely avoids mentioning Carolyn's lovehandles while she focuses on making the dragon meat sizzling~ [15:09] <~SU_Tempest> [Carolyn] I'm not surprised, yknow. I grew a bit of a package with my lazy lifestyle. [15:09] <~SU_Tempest> [Carolyn] Trust me, that's literally why I think being a shrine maiden is boring! You don't get to do shit. [15:11] <Jonah> Really? What about givng comfort to those lost in life? Meeting with youkai and battling demons? [15:11] <Jonah> I always figured the mikos had a rougher job than the Paladins. All we have to do is kill things. You take care of everything else. [15:12] <~SU_Tempest> [Carolyn] I'd have preferred being a mercenary, but I didn't know that back then. I thought that was all I can do because, well, I've always been kinda chubby and the military recruiters pretty much laughed at me when I turned 17. They were like, "Nah, you need to join the religious corps instead," and I took the advice literally. [15:13] <~SU_Tempest> [Raider] You'd have turned up a lot worse if you did join the military. Trust me. [15:14] <Jonah> The military life isn't for everyone. Just the basic training alone... yuck. I washed out of it so fast. [15:14] <Jonah> I'd probably have become a bandit or something if the gods didn't give me the holy warrior option. [15:15] <~SU_Tempest> [Raider] I'd kinda like the shrine maidens to have a military element. But then again you gals are issued with pistols anyway. [15:16] <~SU_Tempest> [Carolyn] It's for defense, nothing more! We don't attack or raid anything, it's for the occasional demon invasion, raiding thief or any such things, nothing more! [15:16] <Jonah> A lot of Basic is learning to be okay with pulling the trigger on someone else, subliming your personality and identity with the military and your squad, being willing to die for anyone in your squad - it's basically brainwashing. [15:17] <Jonah> Mmm - Carolyn, do you know of any Mikos who buy, well. Other guns? A pistol's not a lot in Mazeworld, it seems like. [15:18] <~SU_Tempest> [Carolyn] Some do, but even wild creatures seem to respect shrine maidens in general, so it's good enough in most cases. [15:20] <Jonah> ...That's surprisingly lax. The priestesses back home learn how to use a polearm, a pistol, and a rifle. And it tends to be five to a shrine. Strength in numbers, you know? [15:21] <~SU_Tempest> [Carolyn] One with a gun beats five with a spear. ~ [15:22] <Jonah> Are you sure about that~? Some girls are really good with long, thick shafts! [15:22] <~SU_Tempest> [Carolyn] But that's because in our order, our only superiors are the gods themselves, there used to be a concept of high priestess but they're thought to be long gone by now. A [15:23] <~SU_Tempest> *She pretends to ignore the lewdness.* [15:24] <~SU_Tempest> [Carolyn] There -is- a honorary high priestess though, the Legendary Shrine Maiden, and the legend says that she is reborn anew every time she dies. I've never met her and no-one knows where she is, if she even exists. [15:24] <Jonah> That's... surprisingly intimate. And hey - if she exists, the gods will lead us to her. [15:24] <Jonah> Then we can bug her crazy about theological issues. Like ~marriage~ [15:26] <~SU_Tempest> [Carolyn] I'll be honest, I believe she's the only one allowed to reproduce. How else would there be a Legendary Shrine Maiden that surprisingly looks physically the same as last generation's every time? [15:26] <~SU_Tempest> [Carolyn] Either that, or it's something even more different. But at that point I ran out of ideas. [15:28] <Jonah> Well, bringing someone back to life isn't that hard. I did it for you. Seems like it'd be a snap for the Gods to just do the same thing for her. [15:28] <Jonah> *How's the meat coming along?* [15:33] <&Hebizuka> *Everything has been cooked.* [15:33] <&Hebizuka> *You have acquired the following:* [15:34] <&Hebizuka> [Food] Meat - Cooked game meat, cerberus - 0,9*(126+1d126) - (Quantity: 4) [15:34] <&Hebizuka> [Food] Meat - Cooked game meat, Aer Dragon - 0,9*(126+1d126) - (Quantity: 17) [15:34] <&Hebizuka> [Food] Meat - Cooked game meat, Aer Dragon - 0,9*(126+1d126) - (Quantity: 24) [15:35] * Jonah places all the cooked meat in front of Raider and Carolyn. "Eat up, guys. Dragon meat's a delicacy!" [15:35] * Jonah helps herself to a good 8 pieces of dragon meat to start off with. [15:38] <&Hebizuka> *You're feeling satiated after the third piece. Do you want to eat the final five?* [15:38] <Jonah> *Maybe just one more.* [15:39] <&Hebizuka> *You have a hard time eating a fourth piece of meat, you simply feel so full your stomach feels like a solid block.* [15:39] <&Hebizuka> *Give up on eating the rest?* [15:40] <Jonah> *Yeah. I'm pooped.* [15:40] <&Hebizuka> *37 pieces of cooked aer dragon meat remaining.* [15:40] <Jonah> Delicious~ And we still have enough to last us forever. Eat up while it's hot, you two~ [15:40] <&Hebizuka> *Carolyn catches a few and helps herself to two.* [15:41] <~SU_Tempest> [Carolyn] Haven't eaten something as delicious in ages! [15:42] <Jonah> What did I tell you? I'm an amazing chef. Easily housewife material! [15:42] <~SU_Tempest> *Raider is curious and helps himself to a few as well.µ [15:43] <~SU_Tempest> *He takes three.* [15:43] <~SU_Tempest> [Raider] Oh yeah. Damn nice. [15:44] <~SU_Tempest> [Carolyn] I feel bad for Ayako. She must be jealous right now. [15:45] <Jonah> Well... she should turn back to normal if we destroy her. [15:46] <Jonah> Let's put it to a vote. Ayako, you're included too. Those for changing her back, raise their hand? [15:46] <~SU_Tempest> *Ayako shifts and lifts her hand like she was told 'hands up!'* [15:46] <~SU_Tempest> *As if to protest and say 'no'.* [15:47] <~SU_Tempest> [Raider] What, and lose a perfectly good iron golem? [15:47] <~SU_Tempest> [Carolyn] [15:47] <~SU_Tempest> [Carolyn] I'd feel bad destroying her, even if it's not her real form... [15:49] <Jonah> Just asking. Don't worry Ayako, we'll make sure to have a feast for you when you come back. [15:49] * Jonah reaches up to kiss the iron golem right on the cheeks. It was tricky, but worth it~ [15:50] <Jonah> Alright, if everyone's done, let's pack up and keep going. [15:50] <Jonah> !mrooms3 [15:50] <&Hebizuka> [ Jonah ] Left door: 3336 - Front door: 3676 - Right door: 2762 - Roomstyle: 545 - Enemy strength: 2 /6 [15:51] <&Hebizuka> *Carolyn and Raider pack up the meat once more.* [15:51] <Jonah> Front door, guy - ah damn it. [15:52] <Jonah> I just missed my chance to feed Carolyn with my mouth! [15:52] * Jonah grumbles as she heads through the front door. [15:59] <&Hebizuka> *A corridor, with five doors (!mrooms5). An activist tengu is present, carrying an old-looking rifle. You spot a shiny in the corner on your end, too.* [16:15] <Jonah> !mrooms5 [16:15] <&Hebizuka> [ Jonah ] Door A: 2398 - Door B: 3050 - Door C: 7161 - Door D: 3601 - Door E: 3267 - Roomstyle: 53 - Enemy strength: 3 /6 [16:15] * Jonah starts off by picking up the shin. [16:16] <&Hebizuka> *The tengu watches the cohort pass, mutters something you overhear as "hot stuff", but doesn't get in the way.* [16:17] * Jonah can't help but get interested just a bit, however, and as soon as she's done examining the loot she'll start examining the bird. [16:19] <&Hebizuka> *A young, tall, x-male tengu. He has short chestnut hair, a pair of blue-green eyes, and bears flamingo pink wings, folded in his back.* [16:19] <&Hebizuka> *He glances right back at you with a wry smile.* [16:20] * Jonah ponders, wondering if she should encourage his glances. After all, she's not usually a male sort of person... but he's awfully cute. [16:20] <&Hebizuka> *ICIS identified:* [Valuable] White gem - Worthless glass - Value 1-6 P$ (1d6) - Weight: 0.1 [16:21] * Jonah adjusts her maid suit as she leaves the gem behind, before walking up to the tengu activist. "Like what you see on this mean, dumb human~?" [16:25] <~SU_Tempest> [Tengu] Heh, you can't be so bad, if you come approach me and talk. [16:26] <Jonah> A smart girl always knows who's worth talking to. I'm Jonah, holy Paladin of the gods. And you, cutie? [16:28] <~SU_Tempest> [Tengu] Seiichi. People just tend to call me See or Sei. I get a lot of "see" and "sight" jokes, though, and am often told I should've been an owl tengu - I'm getting that out of the way before you or any of your friends get the clever idea of joking about it. [16:30] <Jonah> No jokes from me, Sei. A cute tengu like you should stay in the limelight instead of hiding in the dark. [16:30] <Jonah> I gotta ask - are those feathers naturally pink? They're so vibrant! [16:32] <~SU_Tempest> [Tengu] They are. And, naaa. Don't call me cute, you are. [16:32] <~SU_Tempest> [Raider] Are we going yet, or do you want to seduce someone else yet again, Jonah? [16:33] <Jonah> It's not seduction, it's making friends! [16:34] <Jonah> And you, Sei, are an amazing flatterer. I hope the activists got you in the diplomacy corps. [16:34] <~SU_Tempest> *Raider rolls his eyes.* [16:34] <~SU_Tempest> [Tengu] Oh, I dunno, my folks tend to think I'm too much of a sex maniac. So they gave me a crap gun and told me to stay in the sidelines, but it's not true! I just like to talk before shooting. [16:36] <Jonah> Ahaha. My superiors always gave me crap for that too. They gave me protection and told me to start converting as many people as possible. [16:36] <Jonah> No need to shoot a gun when a few words and a kind touch can stop a fight from ever starting, right? [16:37] <~SU_Tempest> [Tengu] I knooow, right? It's like, people are -so- violent just because they do a fighting job. Like, it's so sad it attracts all the brutes. I joined the cause because I wanted to make like a difference with that, yknow? It's not at all being a sex maniac! [16:39] <Jonah> I understand you /completely./ I try talking to people all the time, but they've gotten so spooked from all the violence they just fire first and ask questions never. And if you're on your own it's even harder to try and get into a talk. [16:39] * Jonah grins sheeplessly, hoping this next joke won't get her killed. "Guys like us - well, birds of a feather gotta stick together." [16:41] <~SU_Tempest> *Sei chuckles - in a surprisingly feminine way, enough to make Carolyn turn her head from her conversation with Raider.* [16:41] <~SU_Tempest> [Tengu] Oh you, you're a good one. Keep it up, whatever it is you're doing. [16:42] <Jonah> Well, what I'm doing is adventuring - wandering the Mazes, fighting evil and righting wrongs! [16:43] <~SU_Tempest> [Tengu] Yeaaa, I kinda guessed from your looks and your friends. The golem is kinda cool, is it a real one? [16:43] <Jonah> It's not as organized as the Maze Army or the activists, but since it's just us no one really bothers us. [16:43] <Jonah> Oh, Ayako? No, she's a transformed Tanuki. She was in a... well, she was in a bad spot when I found her. So I helped her. [16:44] <Jonah> I mean, she can't talk right now, but I hope she's having fun now. [16:44] <~SU_Tempest> [Tengu] Ohhh, cool! Is she activist? Tanuki are faaaaaaantastic. [16:44] <~SU_Tempest> *Ayako lifts a hand and awkwardly slowly waves.* [16:45] <Jonah> No - if I remember correctly, some of the activists... didn't treat her too kindly. [16:45] <Jonah> She wouldn't name names or anything, but she'd rather just focus on the present. [16:46] <Jonah> Hey, Sei... do you want to join us? I mean, the activists don't seem to care much about you, since they sidelined you with a crap gun. [16:48] <~SU_Tempest> [Tengu] Well, I'm so, so sorry but I gotta say no. It's a full time job, and if I leave I'm like, basically deserting. And that's bad! [16:52] <Jonah> Awww. Are you positive? Isn't there a way you could, like. Tell them you quit? So that it's not deserting? We could use the extra company, and you seem awfully unappreciated with the activists. [16:52] <~SU_Tempest> [Tengu] They REALLY don't like deserters. I'm kinda stuck with them, ya know? [16:53] <~SU_Tempest> [Tengu] Well. I'd say yes if you're actively fighting Soldiers, but you're adventurers, I bet that's not what you're out for. [16:54] <Jonah> Well, some soldiers are like you, Sei. They don't want to fight, they just want to help make a difference. So we can't just pull the trigger as soon as we see them. [16:54] <Jonah> If they're hurting people, though, of course we'll step up. Carolyn, do you remember the restraunt? Where we got in a firefight with those Soldiers harrassing that Tengu? [16:55] <~SU_Tempest> [Carolyn] [16:55] <~SU_Tempest> [Carolyn] Oh yeah, I do. That is hard to forget. [16:55] <~SU_Tempest> [Carolyn] You proceeded to lash the hell out at him for not defending himself. [16:57] <Jonah> I... I was dumb. And I was still too used to the way my world worked. Getting pulled from the Afterlife and being told you're the Contestant of some new world is... it's crazy. [16:58] <Jonah> At this point, I just want to help as many people as I can before I leave. Oh, I hope I can leave. [16:59] <Jonah> So, right, uhm - Sei, from a woman who'd rather talk than fight to a man who'd rather talk than fight. You'd be doing a lot of good if you came with us. You'd definitely be helping other youkai, and I promise your folks wouldn't be able to argue with the results. [16:59] <~SU_Tempest> [Tengu] Well, like I said, cutie. Keep it up! And if you meet any mean Soldiers, blast the hell outta 'em for me. I'm doing it because I want to help in my own way, too. [17:00] <Jonah> And, hey, if you don't like our methods, then you can always leave and come back. Why not give us a trial run? [17:00] <Jonah> Dang. So you won't blast the hell outta 'em with me? [17:00] <~SU_Tempest> [Tengu] I can't, I really can't. This sector is what I've been assigned to this week. [17:02] <~SU_Tempest> [Tengu] If I leave, I'm done for. They'll find me and I'm a cooked goose instantly. I'm trying to regain their favors by doing a good job... [17:03] <Jonah> Well... that door over there says 3601, so you'd still technically be in the Sector. [17:03] * Jonah laughs with a bit of embarrassment at her latest attempt to convince him. "It's a real shame. I really liked you, you know? At first sight." [17:03] <~SU_Tempest> [Tengu] You - what? No, it doesn't say 3601! [17:03] <~SU_Tempest> [Tengu] That's at the other end of the sector --... Wait. Wait. I get it. I get it now. [17:04] <Jonah> Wait, what? What do you mean, it doesn't say - [17:04] <~SU_Tempest> [Tengu] You're a Contestant, aren't you? [17:04] <Jonah> I, uh - yes? [17:05] * Jonah flashes him the amulets she has on her. "Blessed by three Gods, looking for the fourth." [17:05] <~SU_Tempest> [Tengu] Ohh. That explains. Another good reason I can't come with you. You guys really DO hop around the whole Mazes instead of seeing the world like it is really. [17:06] <Jonah> Well, you /could/ look at it like that. But you could also say that by coming with me, you could influence ~The~ Contestant to be pro-youkai. All without threatening her or firing a shot. [17:08] <~SU_Tempest> [Tengu] I'm not really sure if it's my place to influence you, sweetie. I'm just someone trying to do a job, not a propaganda person. But again, I'm so sorry but I have to say no. I should stay here. You've convinced me to try and do an even better job from now on. [17:08] <Jonah> Nuts and double nuts. [17:08] * Jonah sighs, appraising Sei one last time. [17:09] <&Hebizuka> *What are you looking for?* [17:09] <Jonah> *Nothing in particular. Just taking in his cute, boyish looks.* [17:10] <Jonah> Well. If you won't come with me - will you cum with me? Let our souls connect and enjoy ourselves? [17:10] <~SU_Tempest> [Carolyn] I don't wanna pull an impatient girl impression, but we should get going. Amulets won't find themselves. [17:10] <~SU_Tempest> [Raider] *Sigh* I can't believe she just SAID that. [17:10] <~SU_Tempest> *More girlish laughter from the pink-winged creature.* [17:11] <~SU_Tempest> [Tengu] Don't be silly. I can't see how I'd accept that! But duly noted, you're a pervert! At least you're a cute pervert. [17:11] <Jonah> And shot down /again!/ You're terrible, Sei. [17:11] <~SU_Tempest> [Tengu] Yeeees. I get that often. [17:12] * Jonah kisses him deep on the lips regardless, enjoying his softness and warmth for just a moment. [17:12] <~SU_Tempest> *Roll 2d6.* [17:12] <Jonah> @roll 2d6 [17:12] <MazeBot> Jonah: 6 [17:12] <&Hebizuka> @roll 2d6 Sei [17:12] <MazeBot> Hebizuka, Sei: 5 [17:13] <&Hebizuka> *Sei tries to resist you, but wryly enough you succeed at planting your kiss.* [17:13] <~SU_Tempest> *Raider facepalms. Carolyn just tuts and smirks.* [17:14] * Jonah pulls back only when she's breathless and flushed from the makeout session. "The difference between you and me, Sei, is that I totally am a sex maniac." [17:14] <Jonah> That's what you get for turning me down~ Think on it; maybe we'll see each other again, and you'll join me then. [17:15] <~SU_Tempest> [Tengu] *Hushed* Oh, gods protect me, I am incredibly horny right now. [17:15] <~SU_Tempest> *Carolyn tries to tug you away.* [17:15] <~SU_Tempest> [Carolyn] Off we go, lecherous bastard. Before I cleanse you. *Sarcastic* [17:16] * Jonah yelps as she gets pulled away towards Door 3601. "Sei! Seiiii! Last chance! LET ME FILL YOU WITH LOVE!" [17:16] <~SU_Tempest> *The tengu just shakes his head.* [17:17] <Jonah> I'm horny too! WE COULD BE HORNY TOGETHER! AND THEN BE NOT HORNY TOGETHER! [17:17] <Jonah> AT LEAST TELL ME YOUR PHONE NUMBER! [17:18] <&Hebizuka> *A dojo, currently occupied by a martial artist - meaning that lessons are open! No students are currently training. You notice an accessory on the floor as well.* [17:19] <Jonah> Nuts and double nuts. [17:19] <~SU_Tempest> [MArtist] Less noise, for goldern sake. [17:19] <Jonah> Sorry, sir. [17:19] <~SU_Tempest> *Doesn't even lift their eyes or head up, busy writing something at the desk.* [17:20] <~SU_Tempest> *There is only one door here.* [17:20] * Jonah sighs, and goes to pick up the accessory. [17:20] <Jonah> Carolyn, were you really that jealous? [17:20] <&Hebizuka> [Weapon accessory] Laser sight: CORSAK. Full battery life: 100 turns. - [Battery: 20 %] [17:20] <Jonah> You're not usually so... forceful. [17:20] * Jonah pockets the accessory into her backpack. [17:20] <~SU_Tempest> [Carolyn] It's not jealousy, it's you have to learn self-control. You can't fuck everyone you like just because you see their pretty face. [17:22] <Jonah> If they're interested and I'm interested, what's the big deal? [17:22] <~SU_Tempest> [Raider] We're not all interested to watch. [17:22] <&Hebizuka> [Pack/Main] 53.39/60 [17:23] <Jonah> You will be once we get going! I'm told I make for very fetching entertainment. [17:23] <Jonah> !mdoors1 [17:24] <Jonah> !mrooms1 [17:24] <&Hebizuka> [ Jonah ] Unique door: 6066 - Roomstyle: 311 - Enemy strength: 5 /6 [17:24] <~SU_Tempest> [Raider] You are my employer, but you are not my master. [17:24] <Jonah> I never said I was. If you're not interested, you don't have to actually, you know, watch. [21:51] <&Hebizuka> *On to the next room...* [21:52] <&Hebizuka> *You make it inside a grassy, featureless room, where a delicatessen has been set up.* [21:53] <Jonah> Cha-ching! [21:53] <~SU_Tempest> [Carolyn] We should sell some of our meat here. [21:53] <Jonah> Times, it's time to become filthy rich again. How much meat should we save? [21:54] <Jonah> I'm thinking maybe 15 pieces of dragon meat, dump everything else. [21:54] <~SU_Tempest> [Carolyn] Honestly? I'm so full sticking with 3 per person wouldn't be unreasonable! [21:54] <~SU_Tempest> [Raider] I agree with her... We should save 9-10, not more. [21:55] <Jonah> Hmmm - ten pieces it is. Worse comes to worst we can just kill and cook something else. [21:55] <~SU_Tempest> *They both nod.* [21:55] <Jonah> Alrighty, let's get started. Sir Deli, we have freshly cooked dragon meat for sale~! [21:56] <~SU_Tempest> [Deli owner] Oh, game meat! Most awesome. I'll buy this 80 P$ apiece, is that all right? [21:57] <Jonah> Absolutely, we're rolling in the stuff! [21:58] <&Hebizuka> *Raider offers to sell all of his meat (8x cooked aer dragon, 4x cooked cerberus), and Carolyn offers to sell 14x cooked aer dragon, leaving 10 in her backpack. A total of 26 pieces of meat will be sold, representing 2060 P$ worth of game, will be sold. Confirm?* [21:59] <Jonah> *Super confirmed.* [21:59] <~SU_Tempest> [Carolyn] Hey, as an added bonus we both get pack space again! [22:00] <Jonah> With any luck we'll find something better to sell~ [22:01] <~SU_Tempest> [Deli owner] I know clients who will -love- this stuff. Thanks so much! [22:01] <&Hebizuka> [Money] 2060 P$ [22:01] <Jonah> You're pretty welcome! Dragon meat is delicious and nutritious too - who knew~? [22:01] <Jonah> !mrooms3 [22:01] <&Hebizuka> [ Jonah ] Left door: 6112 - Front door: 3139 - Right door: 4476 - Roomstyle: 548 - Enemy strength: 1 /6 [22:02] <~SU_Tempest> [Deli owner] I do! That's why I'm selling them 150 P$ apiece to specialized restaurants and buyers! [22:02] <~SU_Tempest> [Deli owner] Unofficially, of course. You never heard that from me. *wink* [22:02] * Jonah pockets the cash until it's filled to the limit, then hands the rest to Carolyn to keep. [22:02] <Jonah> My lips are sealed! *wink* [22:03] <Jonah> Alright - front door, everyone! We have places to go and people to kiss! [22:03] <~SU_Tempest> [Raider] Please don't. [22:04] <&Hebizuka> *1966 P$ added to your pouch.* [22:04] <&Hebizuka> *Total money carried: 2000 P$* [22:04] <&Hebizuka> *34 P$ passed to Carolyn.* [22:05] <&Hebizuka> *Next special room at the 280th.* [22:07] <Jonah> Nothing wrong with a little lip on lip action, Auntie Helel always said. [22:07] <~SU_Tempest> [Raider] Why does it sound like your aunt explained everything in a lewd way? [22:08] <Jonah> The dragon-human barrier took a bit for her to get used to. [22:08] <Jonah> ...Also, she wanted herself a hoard of humans to make her hoard of gold bigger, so she always pushed us for grand nephews and nieces. [22:08] <~SU_Tempest> [Raider] *Rolls eyes* Figures. [22:09] <&Hebizuka> *Another grassy, featureless room. It is occupied by two grazing creatures; two yaks, to be accurate. * [22:09] <Jonah> Yak. [22:09] <Jonah> Yaaaaak. [22:09] <Jonah> Yakity yak. [22:09] <Jonah> Yakity sax! [22:09] <&Hebizuka> * [22:09] * Jonah starts humming that terrible chase music as she goes on her way. [22:09] <&Hebizuka> *These creatures are -large-. And -fat-.* [22:10] <Jonah> !mrooms3 [22:10] <&Hebizuka> [ Jonah ] Left door: 4192 - Front door: 5989 - Right door: 5525 - Roomstyle: 491 - Enemy strength: 2 /6 [22:10] <&Hebizuka> *And peaceful as well. If you wish to leave, they won't disturb you.* [22:10] <Jonah> Let's not bother them. Front door, everyone. [22:11] <&Hebizuka> *You and your friends make their way down a few stairs... Ayako struggling not to slip and crash given her enlarged golem feet.* [22:12] <&Hebizuka> *A TV room. A big widescreen television (@whatsonTV) on a wall, in front of which you see the usual comfy couch and table. A shiny can also be seen abandoned on the couch.* [22:13] <Jonah> @whatsonTV [22:13] <MazeBot> [Music Video] Karaoke Session on vocal Alstroemeria Records songs [22:13] <Jonah> What. /What./ [22:13] <Jonah> How do you guys have Alstroemeria here. They're a music circle from my world! [22:13] <~SU_Tempest> [Carolyn] Alstro? They're a youkai band here. [22:14] <~SU_Tempest> [Carolyn] They're pretty good. [22:14] <Jonah> Really good. But they're composed of elves in my world. Even the actual /songs/ are the same, I lost my virginity to this one! [22:15] * Jonah stares, slack jawed at the television, before waking up and grabbing at the shiny. [22:16] <&Hebizuka> *The current song appears to be named "Dolls".* [22:16] <&Hebizuka> *Though it is an instrumental version.* [22:17] <Jonah> Yup, that's the one. I can still remember that moonlit stroll~ [22:17] <~SU_Tempest> [Raider] The universe is small... [22:19] <~SU_Tempest> [Carolyn] Hmm. You had sex on a pretty mild beat. Must've been real nice and slow. [22:19] <~SU_Tempest> [Carolyn] I hear younguns usually lose their virginity and finish in five minutes. [22:19] <~SU_Tempest> *She actually pronounces it "Youn-guns".* [22:20] <Jonah> Mhmm! Definitely nice, amazingly slow. She made me a woman in the best possible way~ [22:20] <~SU_Tempest> [Raider] I don't remember my first time. [22:21] <Jonah> We didn't stop 'till dawn. Just - cuddled and kissed in between rounds. [22:21] * Jonah tries to avoid /leering/ at Carolyn, but she hopes the premise of 'just like what I'll do to you' doesn't need to be said. [22:21] <~SU_Tempest> [Raider] *Surprisingly placid* I have no idea where she is now. All I'm sure of is it was a girl and she must've been as young as I am. [22:21] <~SU_Tempest> [Raider] Well. Was. [22:22] <Jonah> Ahhh. That - that sucks. I'm sorry, Raider. [22:23] <~SU_Tempest> [Raider] I don't remember having many real romantic pursuits. I turned into a mercenary shortly after I turned 22, after being unable to hold a job and getting fired for the third time. I didn't want to join the military, didn't care for blasting youkai, liked it better when all they did was pest control. [22:24] <~SU_Tempest> [Raider] Then it's the fast life I've been having since 44 years. Killing people, bodyguarding, framing, blackmailing, hell, even selling people was sometimes part of my contracts. Made fat cash, fucked hookers... drank a lot before. I was an alcoholic, until one day I got into a bar fight... [22:24] <~SU_Tempest> [Raider] Ugh. [22:24] <~SU_Tempest> [Raider] The bar fight. [22:24] <Jonah> Not a war story you're proud of, I take it. [22:25] <~SU_Tempest> [Raider] That's the thing. It's not a war story. It happened while I was off. It wasn't anyone who was cross with me or one of my employers, it wasn't a glorious bullet wound suffered on the battlefield. It was just a stupid drunkard fighting another stupid-ass drunkard. [22:26] <~SU_Tempest> [Raider] Well, that's how I got that scar across my face. A fucknut jabbing his bottle in my face, swinging it at me, and me too fucking drunk and stupid to stop insulting his mother. I'm glad my eye didn't get damaged, but the medics who found me said it was half an inch away from permanently losing it. [22:27] <~SU_Tempest> [Raider] Urgh. I was 30 something when that happened. Since then I decided I'd drop everything. Stopped drinking, stopped smoking, stopped jabbing myself with E to stay up longer. [22:27] <~SU_Tempest> [Raider] But I didn't stop the job. Needed the cash, after all. [22:28] <Jonah> Mmm. Sounds like a life filled with regrets. [22:28] <Jonah> Ever wanted to start over? [22:29] <~SU_Tempest> [Raider] Eh. I realized a bit late that being young and stupid gets dangerous when you push it past 30. Wish more mercs realized it because we need people with some discipline in the job. Problem is, most lessons that teach discipline when you deal with killing for cash, are often life-terminating lessons. [22:30] <~SU_Tempest> [Raider] Too many peeps decide "I wanna be a merc cuz they're badass and win millions!". Then they buy a gun, a mag carrier, tacticool clothing and run around claiming they're the best fucking shots in the world, and they get killed by the first serious fucker on the way. [22:31] <~SU_Tempest> [Raider] -I- didn't stay alive all that time by being a jackass. [22:31] <Jonah> Yeah, I can see that. I was one of those young and stupid ones. [22:32] <Jonah> Shot in the head, starved to death, poisoned - I can't keep track of how many times someone's pulled me back from the dead. I was all sorts of lucky. [22:32] * Jonah goes and checks the shiny while she and Raider have a serious talk for once. [22:32] <~SU_Tempest> [Raider] Look... I don't know why I decided to tell you all this. Like I said, I'm doing this since 44 years, and you are the first employer who has consistently made me question myself. I legitimately thought that I saw everything, and you come in, with your cohort of fruitcake friends and your antics, and you change -everything- I thought I knew about the job. [22:33] <~SU_Tempest> [Raider] I don't even think I'm looking at you like an employer. Are you really looking at me as just a hired gun? [22:34] <Jonah> ...Just a hired gun? Well... no, not really. But just because I pay you to stick around doesn't mean we don't have a friendship. [22:34] <Jonah> Kinda enhances it, really. [22:35] <Jonah> When I head outta this shithole, you're welcome to come aboard. My world could use more smart mercs, and the people are nicer. [22:36] <~SU_Tempest> [Raider] Well. Friends. I never thought I'd have any on the job. Let's just say I respect you on a personal level, outside of the professional aspect. You're freaking crazy, but, I dunno. The good kind of crazy. [22:37] <~SU_Tempest> [Carolyn] Damn right she's good crazy. [22:38] <Jonah> Mmm. The feeling's mutual, at least. It's always refreshing to work with a professional - especially ones with ethics. Here's hoping our business arrangement lasts for a good, long while. [22:38] * Jonah , for all her posturing, can't help but blush a bit when Carolyn praises her. [22:38] <Jonah> Uhm, right. Shinies. Let's pick it up and get going. [22:39] <~SU_Tempest> [Raider] No reason it can't. I... I think I like working for you. [22:39] <&Hebizuka> *ICIS identified:* [22:39] <&Hebizuka> [Valuable] Yellow gem - Citrine - Value 30-80 P$ (1d51 +29) - Weight: 0.1 [22:40] <Jonah> Ahaha. Now /that/ is some damned good praise. I'll make sure to keep it interesting. [22:40] * Jonah happily pockets the pretty yellow gem before heading on her way.

[22:41] <&Hebizuka> [Pack/Main] 53.49/60 [22:41] <&Hebizuka> *You notice that for what is perhaps the first time since you hired him, Raider is cracking a smile. A small one, but a smile all the same.* [22:44] * Jonah has a shiteating grin of her own, and is happily sharing her good mood with Carolyn. [22:45] <&Hebizuka> *She is grinning wide too.* [22:45] <&Hebizuka> *A regular, featureless room. A bulk can of ammo has been abandoned in the corner...* [22:45] <&Hebizuka> *You also notice an item in another corner.* [22:46] * Jonah checks out both! [22:46] <&Hebizuka> [Item] A chlorine tablet. A common disinfectant, which dissolves in water and eliminates bacteria. Do not eat! [22:47] <&Hebizuka> [Ammunition] Bulk can of .357 Magnum, TPD, 500 rounds - [339/500] - Weight: 6.78 [22:48] <Jonah> That's a lot of magnum ammo! [22:48] <~SU_Tempest> [Raider] More importantly, these are good ammunition. [22:48] <Jonah> \And we just made a huge amount of room. Carolyn, do you mind carrying these for us? [22:49] <Jonah> That's what selling things is for, mysterious disemboweled voice! [22:50] <Jonah> So, uhm - yeah, water purifcation tablet, and lots of valuable ammo. Need help putting them in you, Carolyn? [22:51] <~SU_Tempest> [Carolyn] Lewd. [22:52] <~SU_Tempest> [Raider] Yknow... I told myself, "the day I'll ever have to use a revolver, I'll have changed a lot". [22:52] <~SU_Tempest> *He pulls out the S&W 686 from his backpack - one of your starting weapons, which he kept ever since.* [22:52] <~SU_Tempest> *Then straps it to his left leg, sitting as his TW weapon, keeping the trusty M9 on the right one.* [22:53] <~SU_Tempest> [Raider] Care to pass me all the .357 ammo and the speedloaders either of you might have? I wanna start changing my methods a bit. [22:54] <Jonah> Ahahaa. Sure, go right on ahead. [22:54] * Jonah hands him the 44 .357 XPD rounds she has, as well as the speedloaders in her belt. [22:58] <&Hebizuka> *He grabs everything and starts arranging his inventory. Please wait a bit...* [23:02] <&Hebizuka> *3 .357/.38 6-round speedloaders removed from Belt/Pouch 2* [23:02] <&Hebizuka> *44x .357 Magnum XPD removed from backpack.* [23:02] <&Hebizuka> *Raider has equipped the 686 and acquired the ammo and s-loaders successfully.* [23:03] * Jonah takes the chlorine tablet for herself, sticking it into her tactical vest pouches.

In here, a weapon is lying on the floor.* [23:07] * Jonah feels so, so glad that she has that Improved Awareness implant stuck in her head, and goes to pick the weapon up with no fear of traps or ambush! [23:08] <&Hebizuka> [Weapon] Class 5 Short: Kunai - Sharp/Piercing - Butchering. Weight: 3 [23:09] <Jonah> Fancy. Any of you want a knife? [23:10] <~SU_Tempest> [Raider] Got a good one already. [23:10] <Jonah> A knife strapped to your thigh can be surprsingly fetching! [23:10] <~SU_Tempest> [Carolyn] Sure, yeah! [23:11] * Jonah doesn't just hand it over, she also lovingly sets up the sheathe and... holster? Holster, on Carolyn's body. [23:11] <&Hebizuka> *The miko appropriates herself a knife as a TW weapon, strapped to her left thigh, while the gohei rests on her right one.* [23:12] <~SU_Tempest> [Carolyn] Looks nice. I feel like a youkai though. It's a really typical weapon. [23:14] <Jonah> I'm surprised there aren't any youkai shrine maidens. You'd think that'd be a thing.

[23:16] <~SU_Tempest> [Carolyn] No need to. The gods appeal to all, youkai and humans can all come pray. Shrine maidens were chosen to be human females in the ancient scriptures because it is what is said. We can't change that, but it really is for everyone. [23:18] <Jonah> Mmm. I suppose the gods just like being serviced by pretty, pure women. Can't say I blame 'em! [23:18] <~SU_Tempest> [Carolyn] That's not it at all. I forget what the legends' explanation is though. [23:18] <&Hebizuka> *A meeting office. The room is currently occupied by a weapon shop!* [23:19] <Jonah> The next time we see a shrine, we should take a break and find out. [23:19] <Jonah> Ooooh. Hello there! Do you buy gun accessories? [23:19] <Jonah> Because if so I have a ton of things to sell ya. [23:19] <~SU_Tempest> [Merch] Sure I do. Hit me. [23:19] <~SU_Tempest> [Merch] Figuratively. [23:20] <Jonah> Fire away~! [23:20] <~SU_Tempest> *The merchant jokingly starts drawing his weapon, which is a battle rifle.* [23:20] <~SU_Tempest> *Raider draws his M9 instinctively.* [23:20] * Jonah starts unloading!

[23:53] <Jonah> Oh, and - isn't that M4A1 gun the same make as Malika? [23:54] <~SU_Tempest> [Raider] What was Malika? [23:54] <Jonah> An assault rifle. She named it, and I kept it after she died. [23:54] <Jonah> Got it engraved with a little rose on it too. Wish I had a camera. [23:54] <~SU_Tempest> [Raider] What was it, an M16? [23:55] <Jonah> I... I don't know? All of these guns look the same to me, eheh. [23:55] <Jonah> I offered it to the Gods, so I've forgotten.

[01:10] <~SU_Tempest> [Seiichi] The contestant gal and her amazing friends! Heeeeey! How'd you find me again so fast? [01:10] <Jonah> You'll think I'm crazy, but the Gods /demanded/ that I went back for your cute ass one last time. They even forced us into a teleporter room to do it! [01:11] <Jonah> They heard your pleas for protection against your lust and base desires, and have sent me to ~release~ you of your bonds! [01:11] <~SU_Tempest> [Seiichi] Awww! Can't do without good ole' Sei, huh? Love at first sight and all? Heehee. I'm glad I make that impression on people! [01:12] <Jonah> Hey, what can I say? When I click with people, I click hard. The Gods themselves even tried to give us a second chance! [01:12] <Jonah> We're /meant to be,/ Sei. It's been foretold in the stars~! [01:13] <~SU_Tempest> [Seiichi] No, seriously, lass. What're you here for, outside of ogling at me? [01:13] <Jonah> Seriously, I just wanted to ogle and kiss you again. [01:13] <Jonah> And maybe get your phone number~? [01:14] <Jonah> We could still keep in touch, even if you're not willing to 'keep in touch'. [01:16] <~SU_Tempest> [Seiichi] Sure! I actually live nearby, even though I don't always guard this room. [01:16] <~SU_Tempest> [Seiichi] Activism ain't 24/7 in my life, I can probs spare some time for a friend. We're friends, right? *Coy smirk* [01:16] <~SU_Tempest> [Seiichi] Soooo. My phone number. [01:17] * Jonah smiles back, just as coy and pleased. "Well, friends for now. I'm hoping for more later, cutie-pie. You're positively gorgeous." [01:18] <~SU_Tempest> [Seiichi] If I get it right, it should be 1-123-3684. If I'm home, I'll answer right away. [01:18] <~SU_Tempest> [Seiichi] And my full name is Seiichi Murai. [01:18] * Jonah writes it down on a sheet of paper along with Seiichi's name - she even goes so far as to dot the i's with small, cutsey hearts. [01:20] <&Hebizuka> *Contact acquired.* [01:20] <Jonah> Alright. I promise I won't forget. And I'd give you my phone number, but I move around too much. I think. [01:20] <&Hebizuka> *You may use your phone to perform a contact call whenever possible.* [01:20] <Jonah> Unless there's a way to figure it out? [01:21] <~SU_Tempest> [Seiichi] It's okay, sweetie. Just call me, I'm the one who's staying in one place more often than you. [01:22] <Jonah> Ahaha. Well, if things get boring on my end, I hope you don't mind if I decide to try for a booty call. [01:23] * Jonah tries to go in for another kiss, and squeeze the tengu all over before she has to leave! [01:24] <&Hebizuka> *Roll a 2d6. Opposed rolls check again. [01:24] <Jonah> @2d6 [01:24] <Jonah> @roll 2d6 [01:24] <MazeBot> Jonah: 6 [01:24] <&Hebizuka> @roll 2d6 [01:24] <MazeBot> Hebizuka: 4 [01:24] <&Hebizuka> *Seiichi fails completely at stopping you once more, and you cover him in kisses and squeezes again, leaving him completely red-face flustered once more.* [01:25] <~SU_Tempest> [Raider] Grade-A pervert. [01:25] <~SU_Tempest> [Carolyn] That's par for the course, Raider. [01:25] <~SU_Tempest> [Seiichi] S-sure, I guess! I mean, if I have the time an' all... [01:25] * Jonah breaks the kiss flushed, tingly all over, and gently smacking her lips. [01:26] <Jonah> We'll make a date of it one of these days. I promise. [01:26] <~SU_Tempest> [Carolyn] Let's go, lovergirl. [01:26] <~SU_Tempest> *She tugs you again.* [01:26] * Jonah pulls her into a warm, chaste hug one last time. "Stay safe~!" [01:26] <Jonah> !mrooms5 [01:26] <&Hebizuka> [ Jonah ] Door A: 6650 - Door B: 332 - Door C: 2376 - Door D: 5526 - Door E: 3840 - Roomstyle: 134 - Enemy strength: 6 /6 [01:26] <~SU_Tempest> [Seiichi] Y-you too, sweetie, you too. [01:26] <&Hebizuka> *Next special room at the 288th.* [01:27] <Jonah> I'm coming, I'm coming, I promise I'll SHOWER YOU WITH LOVE TOOOOOOOOOooooo... [01:27] * Jonah gets unceremoniously dragged off through the front door. [01:31] <&Hebizuka> *A warehouse room, where a shop has been set up. Some load-bearing gear has been abandoned in the corner as well.* [01:32] <Jonah> Oooh, what kinda shop do we have here? [01:32] * Jonah goes to examine the LBG in the meantime! [01:32] <&Hebizuka> *A black marketeer. The one who sold you the wish to bring Carolyn back.* [01:33] <~SU_Tempest> *What will you do now?* [01:33] <Jonah> *Uh. Well. LBG first.* [01:34] <~SU_Tempest> [BMarketeer] Oh god. Oh fuck. It's not who I think. It IS. [01:34] <~SU_Tempest> [BMarketeer] YOU! [01:35] <Jonah> Uh. Hiiiii? [01:35] <~SU_Tempest> [BMarketeer] How the FUCK did you find me AGAIN. [01:35] <Jonah> Oh god we didn't get you in trouble did we? [01:35] <Jonah> Oh, that's easy. [01:35] <Jonah> The gods decided it. [01:35] <~SU_Tempest> [BMarketeer] Oh FUCK you still have that golem?! [01:35] <Jonah> I still have Ayako, yeah! [01:35] <Jonah> She just smashed some rapist trying to get uppity. It took foever to clean the meat off her hands. [01:36] <~SU_Tempest> [BMarketeer] F-fuck. Fuck you! I knew you'd come back! I should have known! [01:36] <Jonah> Hey, hey! I don't have any issues with you! [01:36] <Jonah> You helped me bring Carolyn back. [01:37] <Jonah> Just don't get any ideas and I won't get any ideas. Does that sound fair? [01:37] <~SU_Tempest> [BMarketeer] Well I fucking do! You tried to send that golem back to ME. I thought throwing your due cash would appease you BUT NO. YOU COME BACK WITH YOUR HUNK OF IRON. [01:37] <Jonah> I didn't do anything! /Ayako/ didn't do anything! [01:38] <Jonah> The only thing /anyone did/ was Raider and you shot back counter-threats at him! [01:39] <~SU_Tempest> [BMarketeer] I swore to hell and back I'd protect my business, and I fucking will. [01:40] <Jonah> And /go ahead./ I just wanted to go through your wares, and maybe offload enough stuff for another Wish or something! [01:40] <Jonah> It is in /the opposite of my best interests/ to get the criminal element mad at me. [01:41] <~SU_Tempest> [BMarketeer] Well that's too late to weep now! [01:41] <~SU_Tempest> *The black marketeer draws her rifle!* [01:41] <~SU_Tempest> *It's a fight!* [01:41] <~SU_Tempest> *Turn 1. What will you do?* [01:41] <Jonah> @cover [01:41] <MazeBot> A static tactical shield, "Defender" model. (Health: 60, LDV modifier: -3. AC Eqv: Kevlar-4. Pass-through threshold: 12+ dmg.

[01:42] <&Hebizuka> *Since you have been noticed already, the whole party can move behind cover without rolling.* [01:42] <&Hebizuka> *The black marketeer seeks for cover!* [01:42] <&Hebizuka> @cover [01:42] <MazeBot> A metallic container (Health: 40, LDV modifier: -3. AC Eqv: Kevlar-3. Pass-through threshold: 10+ dmg.

[01:45] <&Hebizuka> *Carolyn raises her M4 and fires four rounds in full-auto at the shady shop owner.* [01:45] <&Hebizuka> *Raider does the same with his ARX-160.* [01:45] <&Hebizuka> *Ayako will CHAAAARGE and golem punch - or try to at least!* [01:46] <&Hebizuka> *The black marketeer aims her rifle at Ayako, and dumps six rounds in full.* [01:48] <&Hebizuka> *Order this turn: Jonah, BMarketeer, Carolyn, Raider, Ayako.* [01:49] <&Hebizuka> *You may roll first.* [01:49] <Jonah> @roll 4#2d6 [01:49] <MazeBot> Jonah: 7;2;6;6 [01:49] <&Hebizuka> *No malfunctions.* [01:50] <&Hebizuka> *[S.Choke] Shots 1-4: Hit (6 pel), Miss, Hit (4 pel), Hit (6 pel)* [01:51] <&Hebizuka> *Total: 3/4 shots, 16 pellets* [01:51] <&Hebizuka> *You riddle the marketeer's cover with holes, except on that second shot where you went a little off target.* [01:51] <Jonah> *Nuts.* [01:52] <&Hebizuka> *Most of the pellets cause some damage to the metallic container, while some harmlessly bounce back.* [01:52] <&Hebizuka> *The metallic container isn't destroyed, and is in fact still standing strong.* [01:52] <&Hebizuka> *Marketeer's turn...* [01:53] <&Hebizuka> @roll 6#2d6 [01:53] <MazeBot> Hebizuka: 5;9;2;10;7;7 [01:53] <&Hebizuka> *No malfunctions.* [01:53] <&Hebizuka> *Shots 1-2: Miss, Hit.* [01:53] <&Hebizuka> *Shots 3-4: Miss, Hit.* [01:53] <&Hebizuka> *Shots 5-6: Miss, Miss.* [01:53] <&Hebizuka> *Total: 2/6 hits.* [01:54] <&Hebizuka> *It's pretty clear she has trouble handling the recoil!* [01:55] <&Hebizuka> *Ayako suffers some damage, in the form of two holes, cracks, and a small chunk of iron being shot out of her frame, but nothing to stop her from proceeding.* [01:56] <&Hebizuka> *Carolyn's turn!* [01:56] <&Hebizuka> @roll 4#2d6 [01:56] <MazeBot> Hebizuka: 4;5;5;10 [01:56] <&Hebizuka> *Shots 1-4: Miss, Miss, Miss, Hit.* [01:57] <&Hebizuka> *Four attempts, but only one hole, and overall little damage for the metallic container to eat up.

[02:03] <&Hebizuka> *Your strength decreases back to normal. Presumably the dragon meat's effects are gone now.* [02:03] <&Hebizuka> *Turn 2. Next move?* [02:05] <Jonah> GO RIGHT AHEAD SHE'LL JUST COME BACK! [02:05] * Jonah switches to the Dragonbane, setting up all the scopes and tripods and oohickeys to take a single, precise shot. [02:05] <Jonah> *Dragonbane, one shot, Black Marketeer.* [02:05] <&Hebizuka> *Setting up bipod + scope for a scoped shot. Correct?* [02:06] <Jonah> *Yes, unless that takes more than one turn.* [02:06] <&Hebizuka> *No, that can be done right now.* [02:06] <&Hebizuka> *Carolyn continues engaging the target, 4 shots full-auto.* [02:06] <&Hebizuka> *Raider does just the same.* [02:06] <&Hebizuka> *Ayako will attempt another golem punch.* [02:07] <&Hebizuka> *Meanwhile, the BMarketeer has the presence of mind of switching to -semi-, and trying again six shots on Ayako.* [02:07] <&Hebizuka> *You are going to be about as fast as Carolyn and Raider. Do you want to go first, second, or last?* [02:08] <Jonah> *First.* [02:08] <&Hebizuka> *Order this turn: Jonah, Carolyn, Raider, BMarketeer, Ayako.* [02:08] <&Hebizuka> *Your turn. You may roll first!* [02:09] <Jonah> @roll 2d6 [02:09] <MazeBot> Jonah: 7 [02:09] <&Hebizuka> *Hit!* [02:10] <&Hebizuka> *Your shot has been so effective, it bypassed the cover, penetrating the container through and through!* [02:11] <&Hebizuka> @bodyaim [02:11] <MazeBot> [UPPER BODY] Torso (Chest, back) [02:11] <&Hebizuka> *And the bullet has maintained sufficient stability - despite tumbling - to hit the marketeer in the chest!* [02:13] <&Hebizuka> *You can't see clearly, but it was apparently just enough to cause some sort of significant injury, because you heard the marketeer scream in pain.* [02:14] <&Hebizuka> *Carolyn's turn...* [02:14] <&Hebizuka> @roll 4#2d6 [02:14] <MazeBot> Hebizuka: 5;7;5;10 [02:14] <&Hebizuka> *Shots 1-4: Miss, Hit, Miss, Hit.* [02:16] <&Hebizuka> *Two more hits strike the cover, blowing off ever bigger holes in the piece of cover. Soon it'll be reduced to useless scenery.* [02:16] <&Hebizuka> *Raider's turn...* [02:16] <&Hebizuka> @roll 4#2d6 [02:16] <MazeBot> Hebizuka: 8;8;8;8 [02:16] <&Hebizuka> *Absolutely perfect! All shots hit!* [02:17] <~SU_Tempest> [Raider] Fuckin' A. [02:20] <&Hebizuka> *The first round strikes and destroys the cover sufficiently to reduce it to uselessness, meaning the next three hits are to hit the black marketeer.* [02:20] <&Hebizuka> @bodyaim [02:20] <MazeBot> [UPPER BODY] Torso (Chest, back) [02:21] <&Hebizuka> *And they all hit in the torso area.* [02:21] <&Hebizuka> *So perfectly well, with such incredibly scary precision, that they cause maximum damage.* [02:26] <&Hebizuka> Raider [ARX-160] Black marketeer [02:26] <&Hebizuka> *End of fight! (2 turns)* [02:26] <&Hebizuka> *Raider is absolutely astonished.* [02:26] <&Hebizuka> *He blinks a few times, unable to believe that what he just did essentially amounted to a dead center bullseye followed by three roses in the hole.* [02:27] <Jonah> The gods guided those shots really, /really/ well. [02:27] * Jonah moves over to the Black Marketeer's corpse, touching the cooling body with her boots. [02:27] <Jonah> Sorry it came to this, Miss. I really did just want to buy a Wish. [02:28] <Jonah> Alright, time to loot. Let's see what you got - oh, and uh. [02:32] <Jonah_> LEt's put it in a vote. Do we bother with cannibalism, or no? [02:32] <~SU_Tempest> [Carolyn] It's against the law and against ethics. [02:32] <~SU_Tempest> [Raider] Do you HAVE to ask? No. [02:34] <Jonah> I know aome faiths that encourage it. Respecting your enemies in death and preventing them from going to waste. [02:35] <Jonah> Right - let's get to the loot, then. [02:35] <Jonah> What do we have here? [02:36] <&Hebizuka> *A dead black marketeer. What do you want to look at? Clothing/armor, weapons, LBE?* [02:37] <Jonah> *LBE, first.* [02:38] <&Hebizuka> =Black marketeer's inventory= [02:38] <&Hebizuka> [LBE] (Tactical vest) MK64 Trooper: Capacity 8 units + Ammo (6 mags only, max tier: Large) [02:38] <&Hebizuka> [LBE] (Utility belt) Default belt: Capacity 0 units + Key items (Can carry key items) [02:38] <&Hebizuka> [Weapon accessory] Magazine: H&K HK417 20-round magazine. Size tier: Large ; Weight: 1.2+0.4 (1.6) - [20/20, 20x FMJ] [02:38] <&Hebizuka> [Weapon accessory] Magazine: H&K HK417 20-round magazine. Size tier: Large ; Weight: 1.2+0.4 (1.6) - [20/20, 20x FMJ] [02:38] <&Hebizuka> [Key item] A mobile phone. [Battery: 6/6] [02:39] <Jonah> A second phone! Awesome. [02:39] <Jonah> Carolyn, you take this one. [02:40] <~SU_Tempest> [Carolyn] Well, I'm gonna steal that gal's belt too... Good thing she had one. [02:40] <~SU_Tempest> *Carolyn appropriates belt and phone.* [02:40] <Jonah> Alright. What about the vest? Anybody want to take it? [02:41] <~SU_Tempest> [Carolyn] Sure, I'll wear it. More gear is better! [02:41] <Jonah> EnjoyY And we might as well keep the magazines too. [02:41] <Jonah> Now, let's see about the armor. [02:44] <&Hebizuka> [Clothing] Headgear - STSh-81 Titanium helmet - AC Kevlar-4 - Blunt-PROOF, Sharp-PROOF, Piercing-PROOF - Ballistic protective - Weight: 5 - [Cond: Worn] [02:44] <&Hebizuka> [Clothing] Body addon - Type-4 Kevlar vest (Upper body) - AC Kevlar-4 - Blunt-PROOF, Sharp-resistant, Piercing-resistant - Weight: 9 - [Cond: Worn] [02:44] <~SU_Tempest> [Carolyn] Well! [02:44] <Jonah> Fancy stuff! And we got lucky. [02:44] <Jonah> I take it you'll be putting these on, Carolyn? [02:45] <~SU_Tempest> [Carolyn] Don't care if the vest failed to protect her, it's better than my stuff! [02:45] <&Hebizuka> *Carolyn swaps armor.* [02:46] <Jonah> How much does the helmet weigh again? [02:46] <Jonah> The samurai helmet, that is. [02:46] <~SU_Tempest> *22 units.* [02:46] * Jonah checks the rest of her clothing in the meantime. If I got the room, might as well strip her down. [02:47] <&Hebizuka> *Strip the rest of the marketeer's clothes?* [02:48] <Jonah> *Yup.* [02:49] <&Hebizuka> [Clothing] Top - T-Shirt (Upper body, Shoulders) - AC Light - Blunt-resistant - Weight: 3 - [Cond: Worn] [02:49] <&Hebizuka> [Clothing] Bottom - Mountain pants (Lower body, Legs, Crotch) - AC Hardskin - Blunt-resistant, Sharp-resistant - Weight: 3 - [Cond: Worn] [02:49] <&Hebizuka> [Clothing] Footwear - Regular shoes - AC Light - Blunt-resistant, Sharp-resistant - Weight: 5 - [Cond: Worn] [02:50] <&Hebizuka> *You strip down the marketeer's remaining clothes, and fold them next to her now naked body.* [02:50] <Jonah> Man, she /is/ pretty. What a waste. [02:50] <Jonah> Alright - let's check out the gun she was using. [02:52] <&Hebizuka> *The marketeer was an adult, malay-typed female. She was short, slender, with short dyed-white hair, a pair of brown eyes, wore sunglasses (which are now laying on the floor), had a small burn mark on her otherwise pretty face, and was equipped with a relatively small pair of breasts.* [02:53] <&Hebizuka> [Weapon] Class 1 - H&K HK417 battle rifle | 7.62x51mm NATO - Semi/Full | M.Brake, R.Sight[EO553], Rail, Rail | HK417 20-round mag, +1 | Weight: 14 - [13+1/20, 20x FMJ] - Cond: 99% (Excellent) / Clns: 99% (Clean) [02:53] <Jonah> Who wants it? Because /wow/ this is a tricked out gun/. [02:54] <~SU_Tempest> [Raider] Well, the criminal life sure pays well, doesn't it. It's really good. But I don't want to drop my gun either. [02:54] <~SU_Tempest> [Carolyn] My M4 is brand new! I don't wanna get rid of it now... [02:54] <Jonah> Then I'll just stash it in my pack. We can sell it later. [02:55] <Jonah> Which means I probably shouldn't waste space on her shirt and pants. Oh well. [02:55] <&Hebizuka> *Spare the HK417?* [02:55] * Jonah takes the battle rifle! And the two spare magazines. "Carolyn, mind holding onto these for me?" [02:56] <Jonah> *Spare it!* [02:56] <~SU_Tempest> [Carolyn] I got a better idea. You keep those mags, you put these in your vest - and to get the space you pass me your mags - they can fit in my rifle! [02:56] <~SU_Tempest> *She points at the STANAG mags in your tacvest/mags right now.* [02:57] <Jonah> Oh - Oh, /wow/ I'm still carrying these? [02:57] <Jonah> Sure, let's swap. [02:57] <&Hebizuka> *You passed your mags to Carolyn, and spared the 417 in your backpack, then the magazines in your vest.* [02:58] <Jonah> Alright, so before I call the cops, we need to get the story straight. [02:59] <Jonah> We walked in on her, and she started firing at us because she was - I dunno, suspicious that we'd call the cops on her? [02:59] <Jonah> Is murder in self-defense a crime here? [02:59] <~SU_Tempest> [Raider] They're gonna question why she's stripped naked and without a gun right now. [02:59] <~SU_Tempest> [Raider] I hardly think they'll believe self-defense when it looks like she was looted and molested. [02:59] <Jonah> Shit. You're right. [02:59] <~SU_Tempest> [Raider] I have a better idea. We FOUND her like that. And we think it's horrible and disgusting and we hope she wasn't raped. [03:00] <~SU_Tempest> *He grimaces and gestures to drive the point he is sarcastic about "we think".* [03:00] <Jonah> We could say we found her like - you've read my mind, Raider. [03:00] <Jonah> ...Well. [03:00] <Jonah> If we want to make it realistic, I /do/ have a penis. [03:00] <Jonah> Do the Guards have DNA scanners? [03:00] <~SU_Tempest> [Raider] What do you mean? [03:01] <Jonah> I was thinking I could orgasm over her body to make it look fresher. [03:02] <Jonah> Back in my world, being able to trace someone's ejaculate to that person specifically is a lot harder. No central databases, and magic's too costly to use it on every rape case. [03:02] <~SU_Tempest> [Raider] Please tell me you don't plan to fuck a dead body. [03:02] <Jonah> I'm not sure if that applies here, and I don't want to go that extra mile if it'll just backfire. [03:02] <Jonah> What? No, No! That's disgusting. [03:02] <Jonah> I was going to masturbate over it. [03:02] <~SU_Tempest> [Raider] ...You really are the worst, you know that? [03:03] <Jonah> Maybe tear the pants and shirt with a knife to make it look more like a struggle. [03:03] <Jonah> When you've been in the business as long as I have, you learn how to fake a crime scene or two. [03:04] <Jonah> So; is it possible for the Maze Guards to trace my ejaculate to me? [03:05] <Jonah> If it is we'll just go with the basic story. [03:05] <&Hebizuka> [Pack/Main] 57.03/60 [03:06] <~SU_Tempest> [Raider] I'd ask you to PLEASE not get your dick out and do that just because it's -sick as shit-, but if you really want to impress the Guards and be the poor samaritan weeping for the rape victim, sure. Go ahead. They don't have DNA scanners and they probably won't send the body for autopsy. [03:06] <~SU_Tempest> [Raider] She's gonna be filed as "criminal, rape victim, case closed, perps still running." [03:06] <Jonah> Alright, good. Just wanna make sure. [03:07] <Jonah> If we can get a name, maybe I can bring her back later. [03:07] <~SU_Tempest> [Raider] WHY. WHY do you want to bring her back. [03:07] <~SU_Tempest> [Raider] Why would you possibly want to bring her back? [03:08] <Jonah> Because then I could either get her in my debt or turn her into the cops alive. [03:08] <Jonah> Either or really. [03:08] <Jonah> Plus, she helped me bring Carolyn back. Repaying her by shooting her dead leaves a bad taste in my mouth. [03:09] * Jonah takes out her phone, clears her throat, and dials for the Maze Guards. [03:09] <~SU_Tempest> [Raider] You know what, I don't even. Go ahead. [03:09] <&Hebizuka> *Dialing which number?* [03:10] <Jonah> 9-1! [03:10] <&Hebizuka> [Phone] Dialing emergency number 9-1... [03:10] <&Hebizuka> [Phone] Hello, this is the police telephone service. In which room is your emergency? [03:11] * Jonah eyes bug out, and she hurridely mouths either of her companions for the room number they're in. [03:12] <Jonah> I- I - oh god, someone's been killed! She's been shot in the chest so many times, and and - I think they raped her! [03:12] <~SU_Tempest> [Carolyn] *mutters* 2376 [03:12] <Jonah> We're - we're in, uhm, 2376! Please, send someone, anyone! [03:12] <&Hebizuka> [Phone] All right, please call down, ma'am. Is the victim dead? Are the perpetrators still in the area? [03:13] <Jonah> She's - I couldn't feel a pulse at all, and there's blood and - no, they're not in the room, it was just her when we came in! [03:14] <&Hebizuka> [Phone] Okay, we have dispatched a team of Guards to your location. Please remain in the area, secure the room from any creatures or intruding elements until they have arrived, if possible. [03:14] <&Hebizuka> *ETA is 4 turns.* [03:15] <Jonah> We'll - we'll try! [03:15] <&Hebizuka> *Click* [03:15] <&Hebizuka> [Battery] 2/6 [03:15] <Jonah> Oh god I hope this works. Uh - everyone, start reloading stat. [03:15] <&Hebizuka> *All you have to do now is wait.* [03:16] <Jonah> I don't want them checking our weapons and finding them suspiciously empty. [03:16] <~SU_Tempest> [Raider] I'll clean up the room, remove all the shell casings.* [03:16] <~SU_Tempest> [Raider] They'll be looking for traces of fighting first. [03:19] <Jonah> Alright - none of us was hurt, right? Besides Ayako, and they won't care about her too much. [03:20] <Jonah> Should we, like. Cover her body with the clothing? [03:20] <Jonah> Just to make it look like we wanted to preserve her modesty? [03:20] <~SU_Tempest> [Raider] If someone didn't have the brilliant idea of stripping her at all... [03:21] <~SU_Tempest> *The merc is finished removing the shell casings.* [03:21] <Jonah> Clothing is useful! [03:21] <~SU_Tempest> [Carolyn] What else can we do? And are you REALLY going to masturbate over her body? [03:21] <Jonah> No, I'm not really going to masturbate over her body. [03:21] <Jonah> I'm not that depraved. [03:21] <~SU_Tempest> [Carolyn] Praise the Gods you're not THAT depraved! [03:22] * Jonah goes over to the corpsse to cover her with the clothing, before spending the rest of the time praying for her soul. [03:22] <~SU_Tempest> *Wait now?* [03:23] <Jonah> *Wait, yeah.* [03:23] <~SU_Tempest> *Please roll a 2d6.* [03:24] <Jonah> @roll 2d6 [03:24] <MazeBot> Jonah: 4 [03:28] <&Hebizuka> *Time passes, and nothing happens until, 4 turns later, the police arrives - two Guards. One carries a rifle, the other a large, anti-matériel sniper rifle.* [03:29] <~SU_Tempest> [Guard1] Police! Someone called to report a dead body, are we at the right place? [03:29] <Jonah> We [03:29] <Jonah> 're the ones who - who found her, yeah. [03:30] <~SU_Tempest> [Guard2] Please step aside, can we examine the deceased? [03:30] * Jonah raises up on shaky-looking legs, doing her best to look vaguely nauseous. "She - we found her naked and weaponless, and I moved over to cover her, and, and... [03:30] * Jonah shuts up, nods, and backs away. [03:31] <~SU_Tempest> *Raider and Carolyn are already in the sidelines, while Ayako knows better than to move and plays big statue.* [03:31] <~SU_Tempest> *The Guards push away the clothes covering her body, one examining her for wounds thoroughly while the other takes notes.* [03:31] <~SU_Tempest> [Guard1] Gunshot wounds, three in the chest... Four. Fourth one here. The fourth looks like it's a larger caliber. [03:32] <~SU_Tempest> [Guard1] Victim has bled before dying... cause of death is definitely gunshot wound trauma though. No traces of physical struggling, she was shot to death before being stripped. We need to call the medics for an autopsy. [03:33] <~SU_Tempest> [Guard2] Why, she's clearly been shot to death. [03:33] <~SU_Tempest> [Guard1] Well she's also naked. We need to find out if she was raped. I'll call the medics, can you call central and ask them if they have someone in the currently wanted list matching the description? [03:34] <~SU_Tempest> *Do you wish to attempt something, keep spectating, or get the hell out of Dodge?* [03:35] <Jonah> Uhm... do you... when will you know who she is? ...Was. [03:36] <~SU_Tempest> [Guard2] Please wait, miss. [03:36] * Jonah shushes and waits. [03:36] <Jonah> !mrooms3 [03:36] <&Hebizuka> [ Jonah ] Left door: 3660 - Front door: 1799 - Right door: 1879 - Roomstyle: 256 - Enemy strength: 5 /6 [03:36] <Jonah> *Near the closest door to Ayako, if that'll change anything.* [03:37] <~SU_Tempest> *She's in the back of the room, near where you came from.* [03:37] <~SU_Tempest> *Both guards take out their phones and make hushed phone calls - one to what you presume is 9-2 ; calling for a medic, while the other calls his superiors, and describes with uncanny accuracy the dead marketeer's physical appearance.* [03:38] <~SU_Tempest> [Guard2] Are you sure? ...It's the only possible match? But you're saying she's not...? ...Well, that's a surprise. Yes, yes. I'll transmit. Yes, the callers are there. No, they're, uh. I'd say random adventurers or some shit. No, not the troublesome kind. Not that I can see. [03:38] <~SU_Tempest> [Guard2] Right, right. We called a medic for autopsy already. [03:39] <~SU_Tempest> [Guard1] He's coming soon. [03:39] <&Hebizuka> *ETA on the medics is 7 turns.* [03:39] <Jonah> So, uh... do we need to stick around for... for statements, or anything? [03:39] <~SU_Tempest> [Guard2] *Puts away the phone.* Well, as surprising as it might sound, this person wasn't wanted. Her criminal record is blank, but she is someone we know. [03:40] <Jonah> Oh- oh? Wait, you assumed she was wanted? [03:40] <~SU_Tempest> [Guard2] Standard procedure, we always check if a dead person was wanted. Before I proceed, I will require you give me your names so that I can write it down on my report. This is strictly confidential. [03:41] <~SU_Tempest> *Raider seems nervous.* [03:43] <Jonah> I, uh - are, are you sure? We don't want to get bothered or anything. [03:43] <Jonah> Could we use pseudonyms, or something? Miss X, Deepthroat, stuff like that? [03:44] <~SU_Tempest> [Guard2] Well, if you have anything to hide, now isn't really the best time. If you're not wanted criminals, what have you to fear? Cmon, don't be unreasonable. Just tell me and let's get it over with. [03:45] <Jonah> Well, it's just that I... I do have a criminal record, so. I mean, it was a misdemeanor I swear no violence or nothing, but... but I'm scared it'll look bad. [03:45] <Jonah> Are you /sure/ it'll stay confidential? [03:45] <~SU_Tempest> [Guard2] Don't make me arrest you and ask again. I can assure you it is strictly confidential, this is part of our role. [03:46] <Jonah> No journalists looking for a scoop? [03:46] <Jonah> Ugh. [03:46] <~SU_Tempest> [Guard2] Well, we're lucky enough not to SEE any here. So no. It won't leave our reports. [03:46] <~SU_Tempest> [Guard2] Goldern annoyances, I swear. Specially the tengu reporters? But anyway. Names. [03:47] <Jonah> Alright. I'm Jonah, and that's Carolyn Knight. I don't know about the big guy, though, he's a quiet one. [03:47] <~SU_Tempest> [Raider] Jackie Mullen... [03:47] <Jonah> *His choice to lie or not. God I hope he has an alias planned - ah fuck why would he not lie.* [03:47] <~SU_Tempest> *He pulls his phone right back up, and announces the names to central, before taking up a notepad and a pencil again, taking more notes.* [03:48] <~SU_Tempest> [Guard2] ...Mhm. Yeah. One of them was worried about confidentiality. Yeah. Also told me. ... ...mhm, alright. No, they're not being very troublesome. Rather compliant. No, no, I can handle this. [03:49] <~SU_Tempest> [Guard2] Right. Yeah. Pretty colorful bunch. No, I insist, they're not doing anything suspicious. [03:49] <~SU_Tempest> *Phone goes back down - he doesn't actually cut the call...* [03:50] <~SU_Tempest> [Guard2] So. Jonah, family name unknown, and Knight, Carolyn, arrested for theft and resisting arrest. And you, Mullen, Jackie, better known as Raider... officially unemployed, with multiple evidences that you work as a mercenary for hire, and a list of offenses so long central refused to give me the full list. [03:50] <~SU_Tempest> [Raider] Yeah, so what. You guys know me well. And I still don't like you. [03:52] <Jonah> I, uh. I want to point out that the arresting officer for Carolyn and I got fired like immediately after bringing us in for escalating to a Code Red without due cause. [03:52] <Jonah> And we were let out early on good behavior. [03:52] <~SU_Tempest> [Guard2] What's done is done, and I'm glad to hear you're able of good behavior. Anyway I'm happy to announce that neither of you is in trouble... If anything you've just helped us uncover something interesting. [03:53] <Jonah> Uhm. Interesting what? [03:53] <Jonah> Oh god did we just get involved in a conspiracy. [03:54] <~SU_Tempest> [Guard2] Autopsy will need to confirm it's her, but we are practically certain this person is a certain Christin Clabaugh, daughter of a known associate of the Yatela crime family. Clean record, excellent student, little miss perfect in appearance. And here we find her shot to death and stripped naked. [03:54] <~SU_Tempest> [Guard1] Johnny, the crate is FL/HS. It screams black market to me. Can you help me guide her hand on the lock? [03:56] <~SU_Tempest> *The two do so, and the lock beeps with an orange LED instead of a red one.* [03:57] <~SU_Tempest> [Guard1] Dead pulse. [03:57] <~SU_Tempest> [Guard1] That crate was attuned to her. I bet this thing is full of stolen shit. [03:57] <~SU_Tempest> [Guard2] *Phone again* Central, our little miss quiet was apparently a black market operator of some sort. We found a FL/HS crate and tried to open it with her hand - orange LED confirms it was hers and that she's indeed, well, dead. [03:58] <~SU_Tempest> [Guard2] Yes, yes I realize. The Yatela are not going to like it. [04:00] <Jonah> Uhm, uh. What... what happens now? [04:00] <Jonah> Are you going to... search her bedroom or something? [04:00] <~SU_Tempest> [Guard2] You're free to go, but I'll make a note to my superiors you guys found her. We're probably going to search a bit more in her life and move on with the investigation. In the off chance you knew her or her family, I suggest you don't approach them, for your own safety. [04:01] <&Hebizuka> *7 turns have passed during which this conversation went on.* [04:01] <Jonah> That's... alright, then. Gods I hope no one breaks into the police station. [04:02] <&Hebizuka> *A medic enters the room with an assistant medic, carrying a stretcher.* [04:02] <~SU_Tempest> *Do you want to watch the autopsy?* [04:03] <Jonah> *Yeah, why not. Maybe it;ll turn out she's been augmented.* [04:04] <~SU_Tempest> [Medic] The patient has only been wounded by the large-caliber round... the three smaller rounds have struck the killing blow, they perforated her heart pretty much dead on... Whoever shot her was a marksman, a professional, for sure... [04:05] * Jonah takes a step back to converse with Raider and Carolyn. "Should we stay or should we head out not?" [04:05] <Jonah> Er, now. [04:06] <~SU_Tempest> [Medic] I will now proceed to verify if the victim has been raped or sexually assaulted in any way, but I distinguish no traces of self-defense or any of the usual external signs. *Turns to you.* No, you're free to stay if you're willing to withstand the sight. [04:07] <~SU_Tempest> *Stay?* [04:08] <Jonah> *Let's get going. Front door.* [04:08] <Jonah> Ayako, come along now. [04:08] <~SU_Tempest> [Medic] [04:09] <~SU_Tempest> [Medic] *Rambles on, examinating her orifices for damage* The victim bears no trace of damage in the vaginal, anal, or anal tracts, and appears to have simply been murdered. Causes and reasons of stripping are not known. [04:09] <~SU_Tempest> *Ayako lifts herself up, and moves along slowly, not startling the Guards, the Medic or the Nurse because they're all around the dead body, not paying attention to you.* [04:10] <&Hebizuka> *Now leaving the room.* [04:12] <&Hebizuka> *A regular, featureless room. There appears to be nothing at all here.* [04:12] <Jonah> Holy fucking /fuck/ that was scary/ [04:13] <~SU_Tempest> [Raider] You and your brilliant ideas. [04:13] <Jonah> That was - jesus christ, blegh. [04:13] <Jonah> It /was/ brilliant. Now we know the whats-their-name crime family will be going after us. [04:13] <Jonah> More bad guys to take care of. [04:14] <~SU_Tempest> [Raider] They won't. You specifically asked if it would remain confidential. We had no journalists. Thus it will be. The names don't leave the reports, you heard them. [04:14] <~SU_Tempest> [Raider] I just. Urgh. He didn't have to mention I have a history. [04:14] <Jonah> Pffffft. For someone who doesn't like the police, you have a /lot/ of faith they they're not corrupt. [04:14] <~SU_Tempest> [Raider] That's the thing. They're not. They are incredibly, deadly efficient. To a fault, I'd say. [04:15] <~SU_Tempest> [Raider] Corrupt cops are dealt with by fellow cops in what I hear are -horrible- ways. I don't know how reliable the law is where you come from, but here, you better be glad they know what their job is because the Guards are -scary motherfuckers- when they're after someone. [04:16] <~SU_Tempest> [Raider] It shows you've never had an SRT team chase you down, flashbang you and shoot you in EXPRESSLY NON-LETHAL WAYS just to stop you. [04:16] <Jonah> From what Carolyn and I had seen, they're kinda... incompetent. And we just murdered someone's little mafia princess. There's going to be blood. [04:16] <~SU_Tempest> [Raider] Maybe they've softened over time. But I'll never forget my own encounters with them. You learn to respect a force that never stops. [04:17] <~SU_Tempest> [Carolyn] I wonder if what we're doing is really something the Gods would approve. I mean... Shooting her was obvious self-defense... but Jonah stripped her and we lied to the police to avoid admitting that. [04:17] <~SU_Tempest> [Carolyn] Why did you do that? [04:17] <~SU_Tempest> [Carolyn] Are you that much of a pervert you need to see someone naked so bad? [04:18] <Jonah> Carolyn, remember the time we got trapped? [04:18] <Jonah> And we had to give up all of our clothing? [04:18] <~SU_Tempest> [Carolyn] Don't remind me. [04:18] <Jonah> Alright. [04:18] <Jonah> I wanted to avoid that again. But the gun was a better find then the clothing I was absolutely going to take. [04:19] <~SU_Tempest> [Carolyn] So you're obsessed over spare clothes since that day huh... [04:19] <~SU_Tempest> [Carolyn] Did you not get yourself augmented to avoid traps, though? [04:19] <Jonah> You. You were /upset./ [04:20] <Jonah> And even if I'm fine with running around naked, you weren't. So I wanted some spares. [04:20] <Jonah> And just because I got augmented doesn't mean you, Raider, or Ayako is. [04:20] <Jonah> Always best to be prepared. [04:21] <Jonah> I wanted to call the cops so someone would know. Make sure everyone knew that she hadn't just vanished into the Mazes and never returned. [04:21] <Jonah> It's... it's always better to know, one way or the other, than to keep on wondering. [04:22] <Jonah> So - no. I'm not that much of a pervert, Carolyn. As for the Gods... well, when we find a shrine, we'll ask. [04:23] <Jonah> Is that okay? [04:26] <~SU_Tempest> [Carolyn] *Sigh, smile.* You're not such a bad person. Pity even for the scum of this world. Maybe you're not such the worst paladin in the world. [04:28] * Jonah lets out a breath she didn't know she was holding, her heart finally stopping the pounding in her chest now that Carolyn understood. [04:29] * Jonah smiles back, crossing the distance to hold the shrine maiden close. "You know me, I got a heart of gold." [04:29] <~SU_Tempest> [Raider] We'll talk about my employment later then... [04:30] <Jonah> Yeah, in a bit. I just... want to rest for ab it.
