From Mazeworld

[14:56] <&Hebizuka> *Welcome back to MazeWorld, Jonah - you have visited 282 rooms, the next special room is at the 288th. You are currently feeling satiated, and you still have the (heavily armored) maid disguise, but you're otherwise healthy. Your allies seem to be A-OK, with no problems to report. !mrooms3 to move on.* [14:59] <Jonah> !mrooms3 [14:59] <&Hebizuka> [ Jonah ] Left door: 2095 - Front door: 3029 - Right door: 2773 - Roomstyle: 154 - Enemy strength: 5 /6 [14:59] <Jonah> Front door, everyone. And weapons up! [15:00] <~SU_Tempest> [Raider] Got it. [15:02] <&Hebizuka> *A grassy, featureless room. It appears to be completely empty.* [15:03] * Jonah bends down to rub her hands against the grass. Synthetic or real? [15:03] <Jonah> !mrooms3 [15:03] <&Hebizuka> [ Jonah ] Left door: 499 - Front door: 6197 - Right door: 754 - Roomstyle: 544 - Enemy strength: 6 /6 [15:06] * Jonah sighs, vaguely tugging at the grass blades before moving onto the front door. [15:06] <Jonah> Carolyn, ever played a grass whistle before? [15:07] <&Hebizuka> *Amusingly it is real grass. Even the dirt underneath is real.* [15:07] <~SU_Tempest> [Raider] Jonah? [15:08] <~SU_Tempest> [Carolyn] What's a grass whistle? [15:09] <Jonah> It's when you whistle using a blade of grass. I'll have to show you next time - the grass here is just a bit too short. [15:09] <Jonah> Maybe in a forest or something - eheh. Sorry, I'm feeling a bit listless right now. [15:11] <~SU_Tempest> [Raider] Jonah... My contract is almost up. I was wondering if you'd like to renew. [15:12] <Jonah> Hmm? Yeah, sure. [15:13] <Jonah> 600 for 40 rooms, is it? Or will you be charging extra now that you're escorting two people? [15:13] <~SU_Tempest> [Raider] Well, you know my rates, 700 for 40 rooms. I'm not charging extra. [15:14] <Jonah> Alrighty, give me a sec to ring the bank up. [15:14] * Jonah pulls out the phone and plops her ass down while dialing. Might as well rest a bit. [15:15] <&Hebizuka> *Dialing...* [15:15] <Jonah> And it just occured to me that my account's probably empty. [15:15] <Jonah> Shit. We might be saying our goodbyes here. [15:16] <&Hebizuka> [Phone] *Dialing 5-PLR-BANK.* Welcome to the telephone bank service. Please state your name. [15:18] <Jonah> "Jonah. I'd like to transfer $700 of my Clothes Shop Credit to Jackie..." she trails off, wincing at blanking on Raider's last name. [15:19] <&Hebizuka> [Phone] Step 1... Transferred 700 P$ from Clothes Shop credit to Bank account - account balance is now 1232 P$. [15:19] <~SU_Tempest> [Raider] Jackie Mullen. *Rolls eyes...* [15:20] * Jonah apologetically shrugs to Raider, before continuing. "Jackie Mullen." [15:21] <&Hebizuka> [Phone] Step 2... Transferred 700 P$ from your account to Jackie Mullen's account. Do you wish to do anything else? [15:22] <Jonah> No, that'll be all. [15:23] * Jonah gets up and pats the grass stains off her before ending the call. "Right, so - glad to have you aboard for another 40 rooms. Let's get going." [15:24] <&Hebizuka> [Phone] Battery 1/6 [15:25] <~SU_Tempest> [Raider] Thanks a bunch. Looks like I'm still following you guys. [15:26] <Jonah> Hey, what are friends for? [15:26] * Jonah continues heading through the front door. [15:28] <&Hebizuka> *A bedroom. There is a bed, a television (@whatsonTV), a @radio, and minimal furniture (desk, table, chairs). You spot items on the desk.* [15:29] * Jonah does a quick sweep of the items on the desk, running her scanner over them as necessary, before turning the television and radio on. [15:29] <Jonah> @whatsontv [15:29] <MazeBot> [Talk show] The Most Interesting Youkai [15:29] <Jonah> @radio [15:29] <MazeBot> [House/Acid] Das Haus with DJ Hans Oberndorf - http://bit.ly/17avBWl [15:31] <&Hebizuka> [Weapon] Class 4 - M18 smoke grenades. FT+2, FT+1 on users for 3 turns. CRITFAIL reverses effects, FAIL nulls effect, CRITWIN stuns target 1 turn. Weight: 3/item - [Quantity: 3] [15:32] * Jonah gives the grenades a quick gesture. "Last call on smoke grenades, who wants them?" [15:32] <~SU_Tempest> [Raider] Toss me one, could be useful. [15:32] <~SU_Tempest> [Carolyn] I'll take the rest, better than nothing [15:33] * Jonah tosses two to Carolyn and one to Raider, before sitting on the mattress bed and testing its softness. [15:34] <Jonah> You guys are way more diligent than I'll ever be. What do you do for relaxation around here? The fatigue is just... wiping me out. [15:34] <Jonah> !mrooms3 [15:34] <&Hebizuka> [ Jonah ] Left door: 249 - Front door: 5058 - Right door: 5548 - Roomstyle: 133 - Enemy strength: 6 /6 [15:36] <~SU_Tempest> [Raider] I'm pretty tired too, to be honest. But the cash pushes me on. [15:36] <~SU_Tempest> [Carolyn] I can feel the calories burn! *Dumb smile* [15:37] <Jonah> Pffft. And here I was gonna suggest naptime. [15:38] * Jonah keeps her groaning to herself as she gets up, and gestures to the front door. "just promise me you won't burn the fat off your breasts, Carolyn~?" [15:39] <~SU_Tempest> [Carolyn] Oh, shut it, you perv. [15:41] <&Hebizuka> *Raider moves on to the front door.* [15:43] <Jonah> Would you rather you become flat as a board like me? That's what a life of constant exercise gets you, Carolyn. /No boobs./ [15:43] <~SU_Tempest> [Carolyn] Honestly wouldn't mind it... [15:43] <&Hebizuka> *A regular, featureless room. There are two weapons lying on the floor, and... not much else. * [15:45] <Jonah> Are they that much of a problem for you? [15:45] * Jonah checks over the weapons in the meantime. [15:46] <~SU_Tempest> [Carolyn] I've been doing so much running, carrying heavy crap and fighting since I'm with you that I sincerely wish I could lose a couple kilograms, yeah... [15:47] <Jonah> Well... we do have some extra spending money. Why not get a makeover in one of those DNA machine thingies? [15:47] <&Hebizuka> [Weapon] Class 5 Long: Cavalry sabre - Sharp/Piercing - Butchering. Weight: 22 [15:47] <&Hebizuka> [Weapon] Class 3 - Colt Diamondback revolver | .22 Long Rifle - Semi-auto | No accessory | Cylinder, 6 rounds | Weight: 5 - [5/6, 5x FMJ] - Cond: Excellent / Clns: Dirty [15:47] <Jonah> If they can remove a working penis they can probably get rid of some fat. [15:47] <~SU_Tempest> [Carolyn] Naaaah. [15:48] <Jonah> Pffft. Why not? [15:48] <~SU_Tempest> [Carolyn] I don't feel like it, is all.~ [15:48] * Jonah slides the Colt into her Class 3 Weapon Slot. [15:48] <Jonah> So you /do/ want to save those lovehandles for our wedding night~! [15:49] <Jonah> !mrooms3 [15:49] <&Hebizuka> [ Jonah ] Left door: 6398 - Front door: 4489 - Right door: 1040 - Roomstyle: 120 - Enemy strength: 2 /6 [15:49] * Jonah decides to get through that front door before Carolyn shoots at her. [15:50] <~SU_Tempest> [Carolyn] You -are- a pervert. [15:51] <&Hebizuka> *Diamondback equipped as C3 weapon.* [15:52] <Jonah> I resent that remark. I'm an aficionado of beauty! [15:52] <&Hebizuka> *A dojo, where a martial artist resides. There isn't much else here.* [15:53] <Jonah> ...Hmm. I /do/ have the money now. [15:53] <Jonah> Either of you want to learn some Kung Fu fighting? [15:53] <~SU_Tempest> [Raider] Eh, I'm good. [15:53] <~SU_Tempest> [Carolyn] Same! [15:54] <Jonah> Hmph. You two /suck./ [15:54] * Jonah pouts her way towards the martial artist, already getting her money ready. [15:54] <Jonah> Hello, Sifu. I was hoping you were offering lessons? [15:56] <&Hebizuka> *The dojo owner turns. A middle-aged, light brown-skinned male. He is very tall, of average constitution, with short, chestnut hair, violet eyes covered by sunglasses, and a small scar above the right eye.* [15:57] <~SU_Tempest> [Dojo] I don't know no Sifu, but I do offer lessons. What is your skill level? [15:58] <Jonah> I know how to handle a sword with the best of 'em, but I'm just a street brawler when it comes hand to hand. [15:59] <~SU_Tempest> [Dojo] So, total newbie. Alright. [16:00] <~SU_Tempest> [Dojo] Well... What would you like to learn? [16:00] <Jonah> 'Oh fuck you,' she thinks but does not say. [16:00] <&Hebizuka> * >Mental techniques >Striking >Grappling >Armed grappling* [16:01] <Jonah> Some mental work would be preferable. I tend to lose focus in the middle of a punch out, and then my swings start going wild. [16:02] <~SU_Tempest> [Dojo] At the very least you are not one of those fools who want to learn the vibrating palm just because they saw it in those movies. Good gods, movies. [16:03] <~SU_Tempest> [Dojo] Anyway, for just 200 P$ I can teach you how to focus your mind, which will help you be more accurate when fighting unarmed... [16:04] <Jonah> The vibrating palm's for suckers. Get a good foundation and nothing'll touch you. [16:04] * Jonah plops over 200P$ easy. [16:06] <&Hebizuka> *1800 P$ carried remaining.* [16:06] <&Hebizuka> *You spend some time with the dojo master, leaning mental focus techniques and what he dubs as "combat meditating".* [16:07] <&Hebizuka> *You've been taught mental training - you now have a FT-1 bonus when fighting unarmed.* [16:08] <~SU_Tempest> [Dojo master] And this concludes today's lesson. Come back again if you want to be taught some more. [16:08] * Jonah has to fight to keep her frown from returning. Sure, her mind's more fine-tuned now, but... she's still lethargic. Damn. [16:09] <Jonah> I'll keep it in mind, Master. Thank you for your generosity. [16:09] * Jonah glances over at Raider, Carolyn, and Ayako, before pointing towards the front door once more. [16:09] <Jonah> !mrooms3 [16:09] <&Hebizuka> [ Jonah ] Left door: 813 - Front door: 4994 - Right door: 3510 - Roomstyle: 293 - Enemy strength: 6 /6 [16:09] <Jonah> I'm ready if you three are. [16:11] <~SU_Tempest> [Raider] Little Scarab is on the path to mastering martial arts, huh? *Obviously sarcasticµ [16:12] <Jonah> If anything my martial arts name would be Holy Smoke Puncher. [16:12] <&Hebizuka> *A regular, featureless room, with only one door ahead (!mrooms1). Yet another weapon on the floor... and still no-one around.* [16:12] <Jonah> Punching demons so hard they're exorcised. [16:12] <Jonah> Not going to complain about the lack of hostiles. [16:13] * Jonah takes a glance at the weapon on the floor. What is it this time? [16:13] <&Hebizuka> [Weapon] Class 5 Short: Kama - Sharp - Butchering. Weight: 5 [16:14] <Jonah> It's a nice blade, but... a bit too heavy. [16:14] <Jonah> Might make for a good price, though... [16:14] * Jonah slides it into her TW Weapon Slot, right on her thigh. [16:14] <Jonah> !mrooms1 [16:14] <&Hebizuka> [ Jonah ] Unique door: 5355 - Roomstyle: 388 - Enemy strength: 3 /6 [16:15] <Jonah> So, my gut says we're in for some more bullshit. Bullshit /always/ happens when there's only one door. [16:15] <Jonah> You guys ready? [16:15] <~SU_Tempest> [Raider] As ever. [16:15] <~SU_Tempest> *Ayako shifts.* [16:15] <~SU_Tempest> *And Carolyn nods.* [16:15] * Jonah opens the door, and strides on through like it ain't no thing. [16:20] <&Hebizuka> *You return inside Prisca's library. You find both Prisca and Marcus affaired at the librarian's computer... It seems they've made an interesting discovery.* [16:22] * Jonah hums in thought, wondering if Prisca remembers that kiss she stole before announcing her presence. "I'm back! And not footing the bill for more goods if that's what this next bit involves. [16:22] <Jonah> " [16:23] <~SU_Tempest> [Prisca] Hey, Jonah! And folks! Come over here, we've made the biggest discovery so far! [16:23] <Jonah> The Crown Jewels, right Prisca? You found them? [16:26] <~SU_Tempest> [Prisca] The jewels, not yet, but Marcus found a map, which I've just finished translating along with old documents - they point to the location of the King's burial vault! This is where the treasure should be! [16:27] <~SU_Tempest> [Marcus] We should probably investigate the area and see what we can find... [16:27] <Jonah> Watch as we discover a group of rival evil archelogists. [16:27] * Jonah sighs. "Alright, I'm in. When do we start?" [16:30] <~SU_Tempest> [Prisca] Right now! Come on! [16:30] <&Hebizuka> *The energetic librarian already hops off the desk and gets ready to leave, before being caught by the shoulder by Marcus...* [16:31] <~SU_Tempest> [Marcus] Where are you going, Prisca? Why do you think I set up a teleporter? [16:31] <~SU_Tempest> *You notice - only now - that there is a teleporting pad in the corner of the room, next to the PCs.* [16:32] <Jonah> Wait - you're /both/ going? [16:33] <~SU_Tempest> [Marcus] Not me. I'm staying back for now, I gotta investigate more on the gems... Prisca is going with you guys. It's her turn. [16:33] <~SU_Tempest> [Prisca] YES. It is. [16:34] <~SU_Tempest> *She grabs her shotgun and her stuff, then waits for you to lead the way on the telepad.* [16:34] <Jonah> Welp - get ready, Prisca, it's shotgun time! [16:34] * Jonah hops over to the teleporting pad! [16:36] <Jonah> W'hat Room are we heading to? [16:42] <~SU_Tempest> [Marcus] You'll be going a few rooms away from the burial vault. [16:42] <~SU_Tempest> [Marcus] I didn't plant one inside the vault directly because I wanted to preserve the integrity of the site... Whenever you guys are ready? [16:43] <Jonah> I'm ready when Prisca is! [16:43] <~SU_Tempest> [Prisca] Sure am. [16:44] <&Hebizuka> *Teleport now?* [16:45] <Jonah> *Yes!* [16:45] <&Hebizuka> *Your group, along with Prisca, is telepadded.* [16:46] <&Hebizuka> *You reappear inside a scratched room - no graffiti here, but a lot of cracks, and signs of damage. You have the distinct sensation that this area is very old and abandoned.* [16:46] <&Hebizuka> *Only one door ahead.* [16:47] <~SU_Tempest> [Prisca] You guys lead the way. I'm not afraid but you have better armor, eheh... [16:54] <Jonah> Not a problem. Just make sure to dive for cover lickity split! [16:54] <Jonah> And, uhm... sorry for kissing you without your permission, last time. [16:54] <Jonah> !mrooms1 [16:54] <&Hebizuka> [ Jonah ] Unique door: 1161 - Roomstyle: 146 - Enemy strength: 2 /6 [16:54] <Jonah> Right! Let's go go go. [16:54] <~SU_Tempest> [Prisca] *No response, just a blush.* [16:55] <&Hebizuka> *Another scratched room, with more traces of age and damage. There is graffiti on one of the walls, but they are written in another language. You notice a skeleton with a weapon and a backpack in the corner...* [16:56] <Jonah> ... /Huh./ [16:56] <Jonah> That /is/ old. [16:56] * Jonah walks over to check out the weapon and backpack both. [16:59] <&Hebizuka> *The weapon first...* [16:59] <&Hebizuka> [Weapon] Class 3 - SIG Sauer Pro SP2022 pistol | 9x19mm Parabellum - Semi-auto | Rail | SP2022 15-round mag | Weight: 3 - [11+1/15, 12x FMJ] - Cond: Excellent / Clns: Grimy [17:01] <&Hebizuka> *The backpack seems to contain items!* [17:01] <&Hebizuka> [LBE] (Backpack) Standard backpack: Capacity 50 units [17:01] <&Hebizuka> =Backpack contents= [17:01] <&Hebizuka> [Food] Vegetable - Potato. 147kcal [17:01] <&Hebizuka> [Food] Vegetable - Potato. 147kcal [17:01] <&Hebizuka> [Food] Vegetable - Potato. 147kcal [17:01] <&Hebizuka> [Meds] First aid kit (FAK) - May heal 1 damaged limb. Starts a healing effect, at a rate of 1 HP per turn, for up to 7 turns. Cannot heal disabled limbs. - Weight: 1 [17:01] <&Hebizuka> [Meds] First aid kit (FAK) - May heal 1 damaged limb. Starts a healing effect, at a rate of 1 HP per turn, for up to 7 turns. Cannot heal disabled limbs. - Weight: 1 [17:01] <&Hebizuka> [Meds] First aid kit (FAK) - May heal 1 damaged limb. Starts a healing effect, at a rate of 1 HP per turn, for up to 7 turns. Cannot heal disabled limbs. - Weight: 1 [17:01] <&Hebizuka> [Weapon accessory] Magazine: SIG Pro SP2022 15-round magazine. Size tier: Small ; Weight: 0.5+0.15 (0.65) - [15/15, 15x FMJ] [17:01] <&Hebizuka> [Weapon accessory] Magazine: SIG Pro SP2022 15-round magazine. Size tier: Small ; Weight: 0.5+0.15 (0.65) - [15/15, 15x FMJ] [17:04] <Jonah> Anybody have space to carry the SIG? [17:04] * Jonah scoops up the three first aid kits lickity split, and takes a potato for good measure. [17:05] <~SU_Tempest> *Both Carolyn and Raider raise their hands to signal they can carry it.* [17:06] <&Hebizuka> *Total FAKs carried: 5.* [17:06] <&Hebizuka> [Pack/Main] 54.59/60 [17:06] <Jonah> Awesome. Raider, you handle it. And since it's just loot I'll keep the magazines on my belt to save space. [17:06] * Jonah blinks, doublechecks her space, and just shoves the other two potatoes in there as well. [17:07] <~SU_Tempest> [Raider] Do pass me the mags, it's best to keep them in the same place. [17:07] <&Hebizuka> *Total potatoes carried: 3.* [17:07] <&Hebizuka> [Pack/Main] 56.59/60 [17:07] <Jonah> Yeah but I'm the one with the belt, which renders these magazines effectively weightless. [17:08] <Jonah> Unless it's really that much of a headache for you... [17:08] <~SU_Tempest> [Raider] It's not that, I could actually use the gun. [17:09] <Jonah> Why would you want to? It's been sitting here long enough for the body's rot to /set into the pistol./ It'd probably blow up as soon as you tried pulling the trigger. [17:09] * Jonah tosses him the pistol magazines regardless. His funeral. [17:10] <~SU_Tempest> *Raider observes the SIG, removes the mag, unloads it, and starts field stripping it.* [17:10] <~SU_Tempest> [Raider] For an old gun, it's in great condition... just caked in crap. Nothing a bit of cleaning can't solve.* [17:11] <Jonah> You're not using my gun cleaning kit on something we're gonna sell. [17:11] <~SU_Tempest> [Raider] I have my own. [17:12] <~SU_Tempest> *He puts the weapon together again, and spares the mags along with it.* [17:18] <~SU_Tempest> [Raider] I was sitting on a pile of 9mm, having a 9mm weapon might help. [17:20] <Jonah> We can get a 9mm weapon later. A fresh one, at the least. [17:20] <~SU_Tempest> [Prisca] You guys... That graffiti here. [17:20] <Jonah> Since it clearly wsn't enough to save this poor fuck's li - hmm? [17:20] <Jonah> You can read this, Prisca? [17:21] <~SU_Tempest> [Prisca] I can yes... [17:22] <Jonah> Alright. What does it say? Some type of warning I presume. [17:22] <~SU_Tempest> [Prisca] *clears throat.* "Overcoming danger is what the brave do. Running into danger is what the fools do." [17:22] <~SU_Tempest> *She glances at skeleton dude.* [17:23] <~SU_Tempest> [Prisca] Well, we're a big team AND we have a pet golem in the team... What could possibly go wrong? [17:23] <~SU_Tempest> [Raider] Don't tempt fate... [17:23] <Jonah> So, warning, nothing particularly ominous, left behind a body to prove a point - pfffft, this is amateur hour. [17:23] <Jonah> Oh, if it all goes wrong we all die. [17:23] <Jonah> But it probably won't go too badly. [17:24] <Jonah> You get used to these kinds of things eventually. Old tombs and such all have a rhythm and flow. [17:24] <Jonah> !mrooms1 [17:24] <&Hebizuka> [ Jonah ] Unique door: 5580 - Roomstyle: 58 - Enemy strength: 6 /6 [17:24] <~SU_Tempest> [Raider] I have the sensation my nickname is the wrong one. [17:24] <Jonah> My money's on the next room being trap-based. Or undead, undead are pretty common. [17:25] <Jonah> You raid your employers of their hard earned money, it's a perfect fit. [17:25] <Jonah> Prisca, if you're getting cold feet - well, just stay behind Ayako. She'll protect you. [17:30] <&Hebizuka> *Another damaged room. Your senses warn you of a trap in the room.* [17:30] <Jonah> TRAP! [17:30] <Jonah> Nobody move an inch! [17:31] * Jonah steps forward cautiously, trying to figure out the trap's trigger without actually, you know, triggering it. [17:31] <&Hebizuka> *Everyone stops.* [17:31] <&Hebizuka> *You can search the room to determine what trap it is.* [17:32] <Jonah> *I'mma searching.* [17:32] <&Hebizuka> *You uncovered the trap; a bear trap.* [17:33] <Jonah> *...Like a bear trap that clamps on your leg or a bear trap that summons a pissed off bear to attack you.* [17:33] <Jonah> *Or can I not figure out the difference.* [17:34] <&Hebizuka> *A bear trap of the sharp kind.* [17:35] <Jonah> Right... Okay, guy and gals, there's a bear trap here. Just step around it - follow my steps, okay? [17:36] * Jonah makes very slow, obvious movements around the trap, outlining a path for the others to take. [17:36] <~SU_Tempest> [Raider] Or we could drop something heavy on it to trigger it. [17:37] <Jonah> If you suggest Ayako I'm firing you. [17:38] <~SU_Tempest> [Raider] You know, it's not like a bear trap can hurt an animated lump of metal. [17:38] <~SU_Tempest> *Ayako shifts again.* [17:38] <Jonah> Yeah but it'll chip at her legs, and that's an increased chance of falling and not getting up. [17:40] <~SU_Tempest> *Ayako just walks on the trap. It fails to clamp completely on her foot. In fact, she breaks it simply by stepping on it.* [17:40] <&Hebizuka> *The trap is disabled.* [17:40] <Jonah> ...Welp I look like a dumbass. [17:41] * Jonah gingerly hugs Ayako's HUMONGOUS LEGS. [17:41] <~SU_Tempest> *Prisca giggles, and motions to everyone to move on.* [17:41] <Jonah> !mrooms1 [17:41] <&Hebizuka> [ Jonah ] Unique door: 6450 - Roomstyle: 368 - Enemy strength: 3 /6 [17:41] <Jonah> Let's just. Just /go./ [17:42] <Jonah> Okay, anyways. That was a trap, so next'll be enemies. [17:43] <Jonah> Or maybe there'll be a break, and then things to shoot. [17:45] <&Hebizuka> *Another damaged room. Your senses alert you to the presence of another trap.* [17:46] <Jonah> Nope, another trap. [17:46] <Jonah> This is already getting old. [17:47] <&Hebizuka> *This time it's not immediately obvious what it is. Search the room?* [17:47] * Jonah takes a few calm breaths before searching out for the trap in question. [17:48] <&Hebizuka> *You find a trip button. You're not sure what it triggers.* [17:52] <Jonah> No using Ayako this time. Everyone, step around this little raised panel. And hold your breath in case you trip! [17:53] <&Hebizuka> *Everyone will need to roll for it... except you.* [17:54] <&Hebizuka> *Carolyn passes successfully.* [17:54] <&Hebizuka> *Raider as well.* [17:55] <&Hebizuka> *Ayako too, but she's real close.* [17:55] <&Hebizuka> *Prisca just misses it barely, but passes without a hitch. [17:58] <&Hebizuka> *Everyone is safe and may move on to the next room. [17:59] <Jonah> !mrooms1 [17:59] <&Hebizuka> [ Jonah ] Unique door: 442 - Roomstyle: 125 - Enemy strength: 2 /6 [17:59] <Jonah> Traps are /dumb./ [17:59] <Jonah> Let's get going. [17:59] <~SU_Tempest> [Prisca] Sadly, they were commonplace in the past! [18:00] <Jonah> No, not what I meant. [18:01] <Jonah> Traps are dumb because even if you know exactly what triggers it people are total klutzes. [18:01] <Jonah> So many times have I seen a trap backfire. [18:05] <&Hebizuka> *You make it inside an old, but richly decorated room. There is a rock pedestal in the back of the room, with two, beautiful shiny items resting on it, surrounded with more of the impossible-to-read scriptures.* [18:05] <~SU_Tempest> [Prisca] Wait, this is not the burial vault...! [18:06] <Jonah> Well, yeah. [18:06] <Jonah> You two /did/ say you needed the crown and the jewels to get to the treasure in the first place. [18:06] <~SU_Tempest> [Prisca] But the map was wrong... We should've been ending up in the King's resting place. Instead... [18:07] <Jonah> I'm not seeing any traps, but let's not take the obvious shinies until after you read the scripture grafitti. [18:07] <Jonah> Instead? [18:07] <~SU_Tempest> *She reads already.* [18:09] <~SU_Tempest> [Prisca] "To restore the glory of our King, may our people reclaim these gems and rebuild the Crown." [18:10] <~SU_Tempest> *Examine the gems?* [18:10] <Jonah> Oh god the King is going to come back as a ghost and possess someone. [18:10] <Jonah> I've seen this before. [18:10] <~SU_Tempest> [Carolyn] That sounds silly! [18:11] <Jonah> Ghosts are /dicks/ I'll have you know! [18:11] <~SU_Tempest> *Prisca seems entranced by the jewels. They -are- beautiful.* [18:12] <~SU_Tempest> [Prisca] That's them. That's definitely them. [18:12] <Jonah> And the message isn't like 'return' glory or honoring the King, it's very specifically restoring the glory to our ing. And a guy /this/ egocentric wouldn't settle for leading a legacy. [18:12] <Jonah> LEaving a legacy, /ugh./ This is leaving me tongue-tied. [18:12] <Jonah> Right, so - like I said, these were for the gems to the crown. We take 'em and run, Prisca? [18:12] <~SU_Tempest> [Prisca] That was not written by the King. A few of his loyal servants believed that he would reincarnate, or something along those lines. This chamber was carved by royal servants. [18:13] <~SU_Tempest> [Prisca] But yea, let's take 'em and run. [18:13] <Jonah> 'Or something along those lines'. Like possessing a young nubile body to rule again after death. [18:14] <Jonah> And if they're loyal they totally could have done it on his orders. 'After I die build this simultaneously elaborate and dumb deathtrap.' [18:14] <Jonah> Becuase /come on,/ two traps to protect something so valuable? Something's up. [18:14] <Jonah> So: Let's take 'em and run. [18:39] <~SU_Tempest> *Take the gems?** [18:40] <Jonah> Uh, wait. [18:40] <Jonah> Give me a sec, my bullshit sensors are tingling. [18:41] * Jonah approaches the rock pedestal right in the back, and proceeds to search it for any traps. [18:41] <&Hebizuka> *You find none.* [18:41] <Jonah> Okay. Let's take 'em and book it. [18:41] <Jonah> @cover [18:41] <MazeBot> A metallic file case. (Health: 30, LDV modifier: -2. AC Eqv: Kevlar-2. Pass-through threshold: 8+ dmg. Pain modifier: x0.75) [18:41] <~SU_Tempest> [Prisca] You take'em. [18:42] <~SU_Tempest> [Prisca] I... forgot to bring a backpack. All I have are my shell bandoliers on my thighs, eheh.. Besides, I was counting on you to keep em. [18:42] <Jonah> You mean, like. Keep them /while I'm out and about adventuring? [18:43] <~SU_Tempest> [Prisca] No, hold on to them, we'll leave them in Marcus's care when we get back to the library. [18:43] <Jonah> Okay, good. Because I was about to say. [18:43] * Jonah yanks 'em off the pedestal. [18:44] <&Hebizuka> [Pack/Main] 56.79/60 [18:44] <~SU_Tempest> [???] Thanks a lot for your wonderful contribution and your excellent help, folks! You've done a great job finding those gems. Now, hand em over and there won't be no trouble! [18:44] <Jonah> FUCKING CALLED IT. [18:45] <&Hebizuka> *Three men come out of the shadows, guns in hands, from the other side of the room.* [18:45] <~SU_Tempest> [Prisca] You! [18:45] <~SU_Tempest> [Prisca] Why are YOU here? [18:46] <Jonah> Because it was a setup. Raider, I want it on record that I was /totally goddamn right./ [18:46] <~SU_Tempest> [???] Oh, Prisca, Prisca, Prisca. Dearie old miss librarian. You should know why we're here. You and your cronies kinda sorta stole something that belongs to US. But I'm willing to wipe it off the slate if you would please ask your dumb-arse maid to please hand the crown gems over to me. [18:46] <~SU_Tempest> *The "dumb-arse maid" being you.* [18:46] <Jonah> *Yeah I kinda figured.* [18:47] <~SU_Tempest> [Raider] ...Lucio Aksen of the Loggia family? [18:47] <~SU_Tempest> [Lucio] Correct, merc guy. I see I'm famous already. [18:47] <Jonah> I /told you guys/ that we should have killed the people who were supposed to buy the crown ahead of time, but nooooooooo we're too scared. [18:48] <~SU_Tempest> [Lucio] Clever plan, maid girl. But as you can see, we're alive. And you are about to not be alive for very long if you don't hand over those gems. Be reasonable, stop your little treasure hunt. It's over now. [18:48] <Jonah> Raider, C4 them now. [18:49] <~SU_Tempest> [Raider] This a fight you want, Lucio? I knew you and your cronies would pull a big one but I'd never expect you'd do it during my lifetime... [18:51] <~SU_Tempest> [Lucio] I don't know who you are, merc guy, and I don't give a crap because if you mattered, I'd have recognized you already. BOYS, LIGHT EM UP. I WANT MY GEMS BACK. [18:51] <~SU_Tempest> *A fight is about to start!* [18:51] <Jonah> Holy /fuck/ Raider why did you wait and let them finish speaking. [18:53] <&Hebizuka> *Turn 1.* [18:53] <&Hebizuka> *Raider will throw his block of C4 at Lucio.* [18:53] <&Hebizuka> *What is your next move?* [18:57] <Jonah> *What's everyone else going to do, first?* [18:57] <&Hebizuka> *Carolyn will attempt to take cover, and if successful, will draw her P90 to open fire on one of the gangsters.* [18:57] <&Hebizuka> *Ayako will CHAAAAAARGE and golem punch another gangster.* [18:57] <&Hebizuka> *Prisca will attempt to take cover, and if she still can, open fire on Lucio.* [18:58] <&Hebizuka> *What will you do?* [18:58] <Jonah> *Wait, so Raider's going to stand there out in the open and just chuck the C4?* [18:58] <&Hebizuka> *Yup.* [18:58] <Jonah> *If he dies it's literally not my fault.* [18:59] * Jonah is going to dive for cover, then chuck a frag grenade at the bad guys. [18:59] <&Hebizuka> *Noted. Hold on...* [18:59] <&Hebizuka> *Lucio looks for cover...* [18:59] <&Hebizuka> @cover [18:59] <MazeBot> A dishwasher. (Health: 30, LDV modifier: -3. AC Eqv: Kevlar-2.

Y/N* [19:19] <Jonah> *DETONATING THOSE FUCKS.* [19:20] <&Hebizuka> *WHAM. A thunderous explosion resonates in the entire room!* [19:23] <&Hebizuka> *Close-hit.* [19:24] <&Hebizuka> *The blast tore nearly vaporized a third of the dishwasher, and the wave struck Lucio and his cronies via splash damage!

(1 turn)* [19:25] <&Hebizuka> *The dishwasher topples on its side, and falls apart even more.* [19:25] <Jonah> That was /super dumb./ [19:25] <Jonah> And Prisca, you'll want to find a safehouse with Marcus, like, ASAP. [19:26] <~SU_Tempest> [Raider] Hoooooly fuck. [19:26] <~SU_Tempest> [Raider] I know why bomber mercs have so much fun now. [19:27] <Jonah> If you get addicted to using those I'm firing you. [19:27] <Jonah> Because you'll cost too much. [19:27] <~SU_Tempest> [Raider] Heh. No risk there. [19:27] * Jonah walks on over and see what, if anything, is scavengable. [19:30] <&Hebizuka> *You see weapons, and load-bearing equipment.* [19:32] <Jonah> LBEs first. How the fuck they survived the blast I'll never know. [19:34] <&Hebizuka> *All three gangsters wore the same tactical vest.* [19:34] <&Hebizuka> [LBE] (Tactical vest) MK64 Trooper: Capacity 8 units + Ammo (6 mags only, max tier: Large) - (Quantity: 3) [19:35] <Jonah> Prisca, I have a fancy new tactical vest for you. [19:35] <~SU_Tempest> [Prisca] No thanks! But your team can have these. [19:35] <&Hebizuka> *Carolyn and Raider already wear the exact same model.* [19:36] <Jonah> But then you could actually carry the gems and not pray I won't stab you in the back. [19:36] * Jonah checks out the guns next. [19:36] <~SU_Tempest> [Prisca] *Smile* But you won't stab me in the back, will you? It would be your loss, cause you wouldn't know how to find the burial vault. [19:36] <&Hebizuka> *You group up the guns and the items inside the vest. You find the following:* [19:37] <Jonah> On the other /other/ hand, I could totally cut my losses here and just sell the gems. [19:37] <Jonah> Because you realize the mafia is only going to get more pissed. [19:38] <~SU_Tempest> [Prisca] Hey, Jonah. You promised you'd help us find the treasure. Don't get any silly ideas now. [19:38] <~SU_Tempest> [Prisca] I'm not even scared of those guys! [19:38] <&Hebizuka> *You grouped the weapons and LBE contents. Here are the items:* [19:38] <&Hebizuka> [Weapon] Class 1 - FN Herstal SCAR-L assault rifle | 5.56x45mm NATO - Semi/Full | Scope[ACOG,4x], Foregrip, Rail, Rail | STANAG 30-round mag, +1 | Weight: 14 - [29+1/30, 30x FMJ] - Cond: Good / Clns: Clean [19:38] <&Hebizuka> [Weapon] Class 1 - Howa Type 89 assault rifle | 5.56x45mm NATO - Semi/Burst3/Full | Bipod(I) | STANAG 30-round mag | Weight: 14 - [29+1/30, 30x FMJ] - Cond: Good / Clns: Clean [19:38] <&Hebizuka> [Weapon] Class 1 - FN Herstal FNC assault rifle | 5.56x45mm NATO - Semi/Burst3/Full | No accessory | STANAG 30-round mag, +1 | Weight: 14 - [29+1/30, 30x FMJ] - Cond: Good / Clns: Clean [19:38] <&Hebizuka> [Weapon accessory] Magazine: STANAG 30-round magazine.

Size tier: Medium ; Weight: 1+0.3 (1.3) - [30/30, 30x FMJ] [19:39] <Jonah> You're a way braver woman than I am. Because I am absolutely terrified of a giant criminal organization /that also has enough pull with the Game Masters to sell Wishes./ [19:39] <~SU_Tempest> [Prisca] Now that's bullshit. [19:39] * Jonah points to Carolyn and Raider. [19:39] <~SU_Tempest> [Prisca] How would a bunch of criminals even be in contact with the GMs? Hell, nobody's ever SEEN them. [19:40] <Jonah> They will /vouch./ I brought Carolyn back to /life/ buy bying an illegal Wish. [19:40] <Jonah> Hebizuka herself /walked into the Room/ just like that. [19:40] <~SU_Tempest> [Prisca] Well, damn. I'm still not scared, though. I'm not letting go of this plan. It will be all worth it in the end. [19:41] <Jonah> I thought they were torturing Wishes off of Archangels or something because everyone knows they're defenseless, but nope Game Masters. [19:41] <Jonah> That. [19:41] <Jonah> That is not the rational reaction. That's not even /a/ reaction. [19:41] <~SU_Tempest> [Raider] Can you guys yak a little less? Tons of ammo here. [19:41] <~SU_Tempest> *Carolyn is already taking her share of extra mags.* [19:41] <Jonah> If you want to fill up go right on ahead. I don't use those anyways. [19:41] <&Hebizuka> *Carolyn took three mags.* [19:42] <Jonah> Do either of you have enough room to carry the guns? [19:44] <~SU_Tempest> *You notice Prisca has been smiling through the entire fight, and is still grinning as though it's the best freaking thing ever.* [19:44] <~SU_Tempest> [Raider] Don't think we'll be able to salvage the guns. I'll see what I can cannibalize though. [19:44] <~SU_Tempest> [Raider] Ooh. Hey, an ACOG sight. [19:45] <~SU_Tempest> *He tosses that to Carolyn, who immediately puts it on her own rifle!* [19:45] <Jonah> Prisca, when we get back, could we have just a little chat? [19:45] <~SU_Tempest> [Prisca] Let's talk now! What's the matter? [19:46] <&Hebizuka> *Raider takes no extra mags, but he empties all the ammunition from every remaining magazine, which totals 150 rounds. He splits with Carolyn - 90 for her, 60 for him.* [19:46] <~SU_Tempest> [Carolyn] We're all done. [19:47] <Jonah> Well, despite how goddamn crazy you are, and I say this /as me,/ you're pretty when you smile. [19:47] <~SU_Tempest> [Prisca] Uh, hehe. Thanks, I guess? [19:47] <~SU_Tempest> [Prisca] Is that all you wanted to tell me? [19:48] <Jonah> So in purposes of fair play I'm totally gonna kiss you again right before I leave. Prepare yourself! [19:48] <~SU_Tempest> *She takes a few steps back.* [19:48] <Jonah> gonna try to* [19:48] <~SU_Tempest> [Prisca] I'll, uh, pass. Can we go now? [19:48] <Jonah> Absolutely. Ready when you are. [19:49] <&Hebizuka> *The traps in the previous rooms have been disabled. The trip to return to the teleporting pad is 3 rooms away. Fast travel there?* [19:49] <Jonah> *Yup yup.* [19:50] <&Hebizuka> *3 rooms later...* [19:51] <&Hebizuka> *You reach the teleporting pad again. It is ready to take you back to the library.* [19:52] <&Hebizuka> *You can travel now, or do something else before returning.* [19:53] <Jonah> Oh, hey. [19:53] <Jonah> Should we bring the skeleton with us? [19:53] <Jonah> You know, let the coronors know? Maybe they could find a match. [19:53] <~SU_Tempest> [Carolyn] Stop disrespecting the dead. *Frown* [19:54] <Jonah> It's not disrespecting the dead when they could have family that's wondering if they're dead or not. [19:54] <Jonah> It's literally giving them the opportunity for closure. [19:54] <~SU_Tempest> [Carolyn] Just, no. Leave the skeleton here. [19:56] <Jonah> Fine. That skeleton's poor children who are dead inside as adults because they think their parent abandoned them is absolutely on your head. [19:56] <Jonah> *Let's get out of here, this entire thing is leaving a bad taste in my mouth.* [19:56] <~SU_Tempest> [Carolyn] I'm not the one who had the idea of carrying a freaking skeleton on my back! [19:57] <~SU_Tempest> [Raider] Guuuuys. [19:57] <&Hebizuka> *Return to the library now?* [19:58] <Jonah> It's /just/ a skeleton! Either its spirit has moved on and thus it won't matter if we disturbed the remains, or it's still stuck on this mortal coil because it wasn't properly buried. [19:58] <Jonah> *Yes. Please. Before I strangle someone.* [19:59] <Jonah> *Or Carolyn strangles me. She's getting that look in her eye.* [19:59] <&Hebizuka> *You're telepadded to the library... and you find the library has been vandalized to hell and back! PC monitors shot out, entire bookshelves trampled, broken or somehow damaged, books all over the place, ripped pages, and eons more traces of damage. It looks like Prisca's library has been, quite literally, torn in pieces.* [20:00] <&Hebizuka> *You also hear faint moaning in the corner of the room...* [20:00] <Jonah> /Why/ did you two put your base of operations in a public library again. [20:00] <&Hebizuka> *Prisca's smile turns from bright and smiling to a face of -utter devastation-.* [20:00] <Jonah> After you found multiple sources of evidence that the mafia was after the treasure. [20:01] * Jonah continues rambling as she goes dig Marcus out of what she presumes will be a pool of his own blood. [20:01] <&Hebizuka> *Actually, Marcus is fine, he has just been handcuffed, gagged, and thrown in the corner of the room. Disarmed, too - his weapon is nowhere to be seen.* [20:01] <Jonah> Like, thrill of the adventure, okay that's reasonable enough, but at least be more careful. Life isn't a fairy tale. [20:01] <Jonah> Okay. [20:01] <Jonah> Why did they /not/ kill you. [20:01] <~SU_Tempest> [Prisca] ..... [20:02] * Jonah sighs, ripping off Marcus's gag and vainly wishing she had her magical lie-detection powers again. [20:02] <Jonah> I repeat myself. Why did they /not/ kill you? They were absolutely willing to kill /us./ [20:02] <~SU_Tempest> [Marcus] Gah! Thank the Gods you're here... [20:03] <Jonah> Marcus, shut up lest I smack a bitch. You /have/ to realize how suspicious this looks, yes? [20:03] <~SU_Tempest> [Marcus] Look... the Loggias came here after they found out who had the crown, and one of their capos, Lucio something, said he'd be coming for you guys next. I couldn't do anything! They started trashing the place and said they'd be coming back with your bodies - except Prisca. Said they had the intention to take their revenge for stealing "their" crown. [20:04] <~SU_Tempest> [Marcus] By the looks of it, I suppose you guys kicked his ass?... [20:04] <Jonah> Okay. That doesn't explain why they left you alive. [20:04] <~SU_Tempest> *Prisca finally snaps and breaks in tears, crying all the tears she can get out. Carolyn is unable to comfort her.* [20:05] <Jonah> Come on, I'm /looking/ for a reason here Marcus. At least humor me. [20:05] <~SU_Tempest> [Marcus] Why, they wanted to exploit what we knew to find the rest of the gems, and open the treasure for them! That's the only reason I'm still alive... The problem is that this Lucio guy is a cocky cunt, and his plans had a few holes... [20:06] <~SU_Tempest> [Marcus] First, he came alone with his personal cronies instead of rallying the entire family. Said he wanted to impress his boss or something. Next, he didn't find the crown and has no idea where it is... but he counted on your deaths to convince Prisca and myself. And lastly... He probably had no idea you guys were a whole team! [20:07] <Jonah> Uh /huh./ And the reason you didn't, I dunno, /fight back/ was...? [20:07] <~SU_Tempest> [Marcus] I did want to fight back. But what the fuck do you expect me to do? One revolver against three assault rifles? Yeah, I kill one at best... The other two would have ventilated me! [20:08] <~SU_Tempest> [Marcus] I didn't want to die! [20:08] <Jonah> But you just said /they/ said that they were going to keep you alive because they needed you. [20:08] <~SU_Tempest> *Prisca is still impossible to console and she cries at the damage, moaning out "MY LIBRARY, WHY DID THEY DESTROY MY LIBRARY".* [20:08] <~SU_Tempest> [Marcus] You don't get it, do you. Yes they need me alive, but you don't think they'd let me shoot them without risking catching a bullet or two? [20:09] <~SU_Tempest> [Marcus] It escalates real fast with those guys! But... it's moot now. I suppose he is dead? [20:09] <Jonah> Well, yes, but we've all been shot before. And you /did/ just imply you were perfectly fine with the chance that those three goons would have raped Prisca. [20:09] <~SU_Tempest> [Prisca] WHAT? [20:10] <~SU_Tempest> [Marcus] THAT'S NOT TRUE! I never implied that at all!! [20:10] <Jonah> And I quote: "They started trashing the place and said they'd be coming back with your bodies - except Prisca. Said they had the intention of *taking their revenge* for stealing 'their' crown." [20:11] <Jonah> That kinda implies a certain number of things, not all of them good, MARCUS. [20:11] <~SU_Tempest> [Marcus] No, I meant to say they needed her too... Look, guys... I'm sorry, I'm so sorry I was completely useless at defending this place, but we have an edge against them now. [20:11] <~SU_Tempest> [Prisca] WE ARE GOING TO KICK THEIR ASSES. I WANT ALL OF THEM DEAD. [20:11] <~SU_Tempest> [Prisca] DO YOU HEAR ME, MARCUS? DEAD! [20:11] <Jonah> Hear hear. [20:11] <~SU_Tempest> [Marcus] Oh gods. Jonah. Hear me out. Please. [20:12] <Jonah> I dunno, I kinda agree with killing them all to a man. [20:12] <~SU_Tempest> [Marcus] I'm TRULY sorry. If that helps, I think we have an edge now. Please, just listen to me. I'm guessing you guys killed Lucio, right? He caused you trouble and you made him eat death? [20:12] <Jonah> But sure, you humored me, I'll humor you. What do you gotta say? [20:12] <~SU_Tempest> [Marcus] Look. Just. Confirm this to me. Is Lucio dead, yes or no? [20:13] <Jonah> Why? Why does that matter to you? [20:13] <~SU_Tempest> [Marcus] Nothing tricky like leaving them alive, or tying them to a pole, or some honorific shit? [20:13] <~SU_Tempest> [Marcus] BECAUSE THAT'S ONE LESS CAPO AFTER OUR ASS. THAT is why. [20:13] <Jonah> Elaborate on your goddamn edge first. [20:14] <~SU_Tempest> [Marcus] He BETTER be dead. Anyway. He didn't find out where I hid the crown. I didn't hide it here in the library. It's, er. It's in a secret place which I'll call "my home", and they don't know where I live either. [20:14] <Jonah> Are you sure? [20:14] <Jonah> Are you /goddamn sure?/ [20:15] <~SU_Tempest> [Marcus] Absolutely certain! Those fucks were so focused on disarming me they didn't take my keyring... [20:15] * Jonah bends down to whisper into his ear. "You better be. Because I don't feel comfortable leaving Prisca in the hands who either accidentally or willfully /allowed the chance of her to be raped./ That's kinda a huge goddamn fuckup right there." [20:16] <~SU_Tempest> [Prisca] This... This shit... What happened today, I vow never to let it happen again.. They destroyed my library, they destroyed my workplace, my life's work. Jonah, give me the gems, and Marcus, you fucking take me back to your place. µ [20:16] <~SU_Tempest> [Marcus] U-um, Prisca, I-...*He's cut off.* [20:17] <Jonah> Yeah, you're kinda fucking /obligated/ to bring her back to your safehouse. [20:17] <Jonah> Hell, bring me too. I want to know where it is in case of emergency. [20:17] <~SU_Tempest> [Prisca] SHUT IT, MARCUS! WE'RE SAFEGUARDING THE GEMS AT YOUR PLACE! And you'll do me a favor too. Call your freaking contacts. You know? The friends you told me would be able to bring us hardware? YOU BUY ME SOME FREAKING HARDWARE. All the fucking guns you can buy. ALL OF IT. [20:17] <Jonah> Prisca, word of advice. [20:17] <~SU_Tempest> [Prisca] They messed with MY place, they messed with MY library? We're going to find where THEY live, and we're FUCKING THEM UP [20:18] <Jonah> Invest in a Protecta, buckshot, and armor. Lots of armor. [20:18] <~SU_Tempest> [Prisca] JONAH. Gimme the gems. So that I can put them in Marcus' safe. [20:19] * Jonah sighs, and brings the gems out - as well as palming a dose of Lorazepam to Raider, juuust in case. [20:19] <~SU_Tempest> [Prisca] You guys are free to leave, but when we meet again? We're fucking killing shit. I want their asses handed to me. GOT IT, MARCUS? THE GUNS, AND THE LOCATION OF THE LOGGIA HQ. [20:19] <Jonah> You /sure/ you trust Marcus after this? [20:19] <~SU_Tempest> [Marcus] F-fine. T-thank you. [20:19] <~SU_Tempest> [Prisca] Thank you for WHAT? [20:20] <~SU_Tempest> [Marcus] F-for not killing me. [20:20] <~SU_Tempest> [Prisca] Oh I swear. I swear to all the gods there will be HELL to pay. You're going to make yourself useful, and we're fucking DOING THIS. To make up for your GOD DAMN USELESSNESS AT DEFENDING MY LIFE'S WORK. [20:21] <~SU_Tempest> [Prisca] As for you Jonah? You have my thanks and my respect for staying with us here. It's not that I trust or not trust Marcus, it's he's going to do what I tell him, or I'm going to shake the heavens and the hells to make sure he does what I tell him. NO-ONE FUCKS WITH ME. [20:21] <~SU_Tempest> *Raider gulps.* [20:21] <~SU_Tempest> *That's the first time you see him legitimately scared of anything.* [20:21] <~SU_Tempest> [Carolyn] Lady's got an attitude... [20:21] <Jonah> *Pfffft. Pussy.* [20:22] <&Hebizuka> *She takes the crown jewels, and shotgun pokes Marcus' rear into leading the way to his place.* [20:22] <&Hebizuka> *Mission complete!* [20:22] <Jonah> Ah /goddamnit./ [20:22] <Jonah> I missed my chance to kiss her. [20:22] <Jonah> It was my kind of attitude too! [20:22] <~SU_Tempest> [Raider] Jonah... [20:23] <~SU_Tempest> [Raider] Can I talk with you for a sec here?... [20:23] <Jonah> Sure. You don't want to be a part of this anymore? [20:23] <Jonah> I understand. I don't want to be a part of this anymore either. [20:24] <~SU_Tempest> [Raider] On the contrary. I think Marcus is a swineball and a pussy here but... Prisca? She's a fucking tempest, a living tornado. If anything... and that is NOT often I uniformly trust anyone... we can trust her. She's got too much passion in it for it to be a lie. [20:25] <Jonah> So we're in total agreement that Marcus is /probably/ going to set us up, yes? [20:25] <Jonah> Tell me I'm not the only one who sees that coming. [20:25] <~SU_Tempest> [Raider] You're the boss, Jonah, and you decide where we're going. But I legitimately think Marcus is too much of a pussy to be setting us up. [20:26] <Jonah> Desperation is the mother of stupidity. God, I wish we had our own Safehouse. [20:26] <~SU_Tempest> [Raider] Look at what he said. He gave himself up and got tied up instead of shooting. Do you think someone as cowardly as he is would dare cross Prisca? Look at her temper. She's a living tempest. I'm sure Marcus saw her like that before. Do you think he'd cross someone like her? [20:26] <~SU_Tempest> [Raider] Honestly I think Marcus should be more scared of Prisca than of any criminal family. [20:26] <Jonah> I think if he has an entire mafia family on his side and he still gets a cut of these supposed incredible riches, then yeah he'd totally double cross her. [20:27] <~SU_Tempest> [Raider] Like I said, I'm not sure. But if he's totally loyal, he'll be coming with us and busting Loggia caps. [20:27] <Jonah> He's totally not loyal. And what's this about busting Loggia caps? [20:28] <Jonah> We have three phones. Just call in as many cops as possible and let them sort it out. [20:28] <Jonah> They're incorruptable according to you. It'll be fine. [21:47] <~SU_Tempest> [Raider] Well, we'll see what happens next. For now, let's scatter. [21:48] <Jonah> !mrooms3 [21:48] <&Hebizuka> [ Jonah ] Left door: 5533 - Front door: 1161 - Right door: 6378 - Roomstyle: 360 - Enemy strength: 6 /6 [21:48] <&Hebizuka> *Next special room at the 297th.* [21:48] <Jonah> I suppose. I don't suppose I can kiss you, Carolyn, since I couldn't kiss Prisca? [21:48] <~SU_Tempest> [Carolyn] [21:48] <~SU_Tempest> [Carolyn] Please don't try. [21:48] * Jonah heads through the front door, abandoning the library FOREVER. [21:48] <Jonah> Nuts and double nuts. [21:49] <&Hebizuka> *A shower room, with only one door ahead (!mrooms1). There is some load-bearing gear in one of the clothing lockers.* [21:52] <Jonah> Anybody want to shower, get the blood and gore off? [21:52] * Jonah heads over to the LBE in the meantime. [21:52] <~SU_Tempest> *Carolyn shakes her head no.* [21:52] <~SU_Tempest> [Raider] Eh, I didn't get any on me this time. [21:52] <Jonah> You two are /so weird./ [21:53] <&Hebizuka> [LBE] (Utility belt) Default belt: Capacity 0 units + Key items (Can carry key items) [21:54] <Jonah> And this is useless. [21:54] <Jonah> !mrooms1 [21:54] <&Hebizuka> [ Jonah ] Unique door: 3855 - Roomstyle: 226 - Enemy strength: 4 /6 [21:54] <Jonah> Let's just - go. God, if I was any grimier I'd make you wait so I could take a dip in the water. [21:56] <&Hebizuka> *You have reached a hospital room! The medic, their assistant nurse, and the usual equipment is there.* [21:58] <Jonah> Last chance to get rid of those lovehandles, Carolyn~ [21:58] <Jonah> Visualize the NEW YOU. [21:58] <~SU_Tempest> [Carolyn] Hey, I'm not asking you to get rid of your penis. [21:58] <~SU_Tempest> *Raider's impassibility intensifies.* [21:59] <Jonah> I'm getting rid of that useless piece of meat as soon as I find a way out of here.\ [21:59] <Jonah> Until then - it costs a bit too much money for my tastes. [22:00] <~SU_Tempest> [Carolyn] Money won't be a problem once we get a share of that treasure. [22:00] <Jonah> Assuming Prisca doesn't die by then. And I'm not gone by then. [22:01] <Jonah> Do me a favor and get inside for a checkup, at least? I worry. [22:01] <~SU_Tempest> [Carolyn] But I'm fiiiine. I don't need a checkup. I've like no problem at all. [22:02] <Jonah> You /came back from the dead./ The first time I did that I was vomitting into a bucket for days. [22:02] <Jonah> Ripping souls back into this mortal coil tends to have side effects! Pleeaaase? [22:04] <~SU_Tempest> [Carolyn] Nooooo. I'm telling you I'm okay. Stop being silly now. Let's buy meds or get out of here, or anything, but I'm not getting checked up. I'm A-OK. [22:05] <Jonah> Is /everyone/ here afraid of needles or something? My gods. [22:05] * Jonah grumbles as she heads over to the medic. "Checkup, please." [22:08] <~SU_Tempest> [Medic] Step in the capsule, and I shall examine you. [22:09] * Jonah does so, ineffectually glaring at Carolyn in the meantime. [22:10] <&Hebizuka> *The medic raises an eyebrow.* [22:11] <~SU_Tempest> [Medic] Ma'am, you're in perfect health. There is literally nothing wrong. You're even perfectly satiated. Limbs are all 100% OK, blood is as good as it gets, not an inch of pain... and I see you have obtained augmentations? [22:12] <Jonah> It's always good to get a second opinion from a trained professional, is all. [22:12] * Jonah hops out of the capsule and heads over to the nurse. [22:13] <~SU_Tempest> [Nurse] What's up! How can I help? [22:13] <Jonah> I just want to see what meds you had in stock, Ma'am! [22:15] <~SU_Tempest> [Nurse] No problems. Just pulling my list. [22:16] <&Hebizuka> =Meds for sale= [22:16] <&Hebizuka> [Meds] First aid kit (FAK) - May heal 1 damaged limb. Starts a healing effect, at a rate of 1 HP per turn, for up to 7 turns.

Nothing can wake up the victim until the end of those 10 turns. - Weight: 0.1 [22:17] <Jonah> ...Okay I'm obligated to ask. [22:17] <Jonah> Do people /ever/ buy the placebos? [22:18] <~SU_Tempest> [Nurse] Amusingly enough, yes. I know, it's silly... But -some- people are addicted to meds, and the simple fact they're swallowing something helps them, somehow. [22:18] <Jonah> How much are they? [22:18] <~SU_Tempest> [Nurse] 50 a pop. [22:18] <~SU_Tempest> [Nurse] Real cheap, all things considered. [22:19] <Jonah> 50P$ for /one/ placebo pill? I could buy, like, two meals for that! [22:19] <Jonah> This is an amazing racket you have there. I'm /honored/ to be in front of a master. [22:19] <~SU_Tempest> *The nurse shrugs.* [22:19] <~SU_Tempest> [Nurse] It's the legal price. But just between us, if you wanna haggle it down, I don't mind going lower... [22:20] <Jonah> Nah, I'm good. I'll just pick up the Yohimbine, I think. [22:20] <~SU_Tempest> [Nurse] That's 250 P$. [22:20] * Jonah hands it right over. [22:20] <&Hebizuka> *1550 P$ carried remaining. [22:20] <Jonah> Can't wait until I get back and get to deal with reasonable prices. [22:20] <&Hebizuka> *You have acquired...* [22:20] <&Hebizuka> [Meds] Vial - Yohimbine - Alertness increase, Pain sensitivity+10% for 3d4 turns, Libido +3d20. - Weight: 0.1 [22:20] <Jonah> Never going to complain again. [22:21] * Jonah stashes the vial in her backpack - and takes the time to reload her Protecta, while she's at it. [22:21] <&Hebizuka> [Pack/Main] 56.89/60 [22:21] <&Hebizuka> *Reload with what shells?* [22:21] <Jonah> *Buckshot, all day everyday.* [22:21] <&Hebizuka> [Reload] Protecta: +4x Buck.

[22:24] <Jonah> Front door. [22:31] <&Hebizuka> *Next special room at the 300th.* [22:34] <&Hebizuka> *A regular, featureless room.

Every little bit helps, I suppose. [22:38] * Jonah scoops up the ammo into her backpack. [22:38] <Jonah> !mrooms3 [22:38] <&Hebizuka> [ Jonah ] Left door: 6186 - Front door: 369 - Right door: 1277 - Roomstyle: 93 - Enemy strength: 3 /6 [22:39] <Jonah> Second verse same as the first. Front door. [22:40] <&Hebizuka> [Pack/Main] 56.89/60 [22:42] <&Hebizuka> *You barge inside someone's bedroom. Only one door ahead (!mrooms1). There is a @radio, a TV (@whatsonTV), a desk, drawers, a table, chairs, and a PC. You also notice someone is watching said TV, sitting on the bed... and to your surprise it isn't a human. It is a yousei, a fairy youkai.* [22:44] <Jonah> Dawwwwwwww. [22:44] <Jonah> @whatsontv [22:44] <MazeBot> [Music Video] Hisao the Tengu Virtuoso fights in rhythm with ALiCE'S EMOTiON songs [22:44] <~SU_Tempest> *The yousei seems captivated.* [22:44] * Jonah takes a closer look at the yousei while they're mind controlled by the tv. [22:47] <&Hebizuka> *An adult, tall, x-male yousei. He has short, dark brown hair, navy eyes, and a pair of blue wings.* [22:47] * Jonah can't resist the urge to sneak over to his PC and try to log on. Let's see what he's got on his search history! [22:48] <~SU_Tempest> [Yousei] You know, you guys are hard to miss... [22:48] <~SU_Tempest> [Yousei] Just what are you doing snooping to my PC? *Hasn't even turned his head.* [22:48] <~SU_Tempest> [Yousei] Bah, in fact I don't care. Please just don't steal anything. [22:48] <Jonah> It looked awesome and I wanted to see the specs. [22:49] <Jonah> Okay, I won't! Enjoy your show, mister. [22:49] <Jonah> *Back to snooping!* [22:49] <&Hebizuka> *Turn the PC on?* [22:49] <Jonah> *Yesm!* [22:49] <&Hebizuka> *The machine whirs, bleeps, and boots successfully. A few seconds later, you land on a login/password page.* [22:50] <&Hebizuka> *The dancing show ended, and it's now the commercials.* [22:51] <~SU_Tempest> [Yousei] I suppose you want my login information. [22:52] <Jonah> If you want to give it, I wouldn't mind. [22:52] <Jonah> If you want me to leave, I can do that too. [22:53] <~SU_Tempest> [Yousei] You promised not to steal anything. As long as you don't do that, I don't care. Login is "moyanagi", and password is "paiva2q" [22:54] <&Hebizuka> *Carolyn sits on one of the chairs. Raider just leans in the back, crosses his arms and waits.* [22:54] * Jonah decides to log right in. [22:54] <Jonah> Is Moyanagi your last name, then? [22:54] <~SU_Tempest> [Yousei] Oyanagi. M stands for Mikihisa. But I don't like that name. Just call me Miki. [22:55] <Jonah> Okay, Miki. My name's Jonah - pleasure to meet you. [22:56] <Jonah> Are you always this relaxed? [22:57] <&Hebizuka> *You see a very bare desktop. Just a MazeNet access, and what you presume is a video game, called "Mini-Golf Magister".* [22:57] <~SU_Tempest> [Yousei] I guess? I don't really notice. [22:57] * Jonah logs onto Mazenet first, to see if any search history was saved. [22:58] <~SU_Tempest> [Yousei] All I'm attached to is making sure what's mine is mine. If you wanna use my PC, I won't mind, if people wanted to watch my TV I'd let them. The rest doesn't matter. [22:58] <~SU_Tempest> [Yousei] You see, I really hate thieves. [22:58] <Jonah> Did a thief steal something important, once? [22:59] <~SU_Tempest> [Yousei] Oh, no. I just really don't like them at all. They're the worst. What they do is wrong. If something is yours... why should someone take it? Can't they get their own. [22:59] <&Hebizuka> *Several hundreds of search requests are in the history.* [22:59] <Jonah> *Anything erotic?* [23:00] <&Hebizuka> *The last five are "How to clean a room", "yousei servant how to become", "military history", "howa type 89 sell value", and "antlion anatomy pictures". Nothing remotely erotic that you can immediately see.* [23:00] <Jonah> Hmmm... I see. What else do you hate, Miki? [23:00] <Jonah> ...Huh. Antlion anatomy pictures? Kinky. [23:01] <~SU_Tempest> [Yousei] Raisins instead of chocolate in cookies. And fruitcake. [23:01] <~SU_Tempest> *Raider raises an eyebrow.* [23:01] * Jonah just shrugs and gets up from the desk. [23:02] <Jonah> Nothing stolen, as promised. Maybe we can watch TV together another day. [23:02] <~SU_Tempest> [Yousei] Sure, I guess. [23:02] <~SU_Tempest> [Yousei] Maybe I should be a servant. So that I can do anything for others, and I get paid to do it. [23:02] <Jonah> Hmmmm. [23:02] <Jonah> Well, I'm always looking for able hands. [23:02] <Jonah> Want to be my servant? I pay pretty well, just ask Raider. [23:03] <~SU_Tempest> [Yousei] I wouldn't really care what they ask of me. I just wanna get some more money. I'm starting to run out. Bank teller told me that I'm down to my last thousand. Sure dwindles quickly when you have no job... [23:03] <~SU_Tempest> [Yousei] Ehh... You look like a maid. And besides, you already have plenty of friends. I don't really wanna be your servant. [23:04] <Jonah> Oh, this? I just like dressing up. And why would extra friends be a bad thing? Coworkers are nice. [23:04] <~SU_Tempest> [Yousei] Eh. I just don't feel like it. [23:04] <~SU_Tempest> [Yousei] Maybe I should be an artist instead. Artists get paid a lot for dancing around. [23:04] <Jonah> Hmmmm. [23:04] <Jonah> Well, do you have a phone? [23:04] <~SU_Tempest> [Yousei] Or maybe a video game developer? Or perhaps an actor in one of those adult videos. [23:05] <~SU_Tempest> [Yousei] I don't know. I don't really care. [23:05] <Jonah> Ahh well, that sucks. [23:05] <~SU_Tempest> [Yousei] No, I don't have a phone. [23:05] <~SU_Tempest> *Raider mutters something in Carolyn's ear. She seems to agree with whatever he said, and nods.* [23:05] <~SU_Tempest> [Yousei] Hey. Do you have some Desoxyn? [23:06] <Jonah> I heard that a few websites were going to pay for homemade porn soon. Maybe if you buy a camera, you'll have some luck. [23:06] <~SU_Tempest> [Yousei] Eh. I dunno. I need to leave this room to get a camera. [23:06] <~SU_Tempest> [Yousei] I don't really want to leave this sector. [23:07] <~SU_Tempest> *Carolyn approaches and asks to take you in the corner to get a few words with you.* [23:07] <Jonah> Mmmm. What are you going to do with Desoxyn? [23:07] <~SU_Tempest> *The yousei asks again - to Raider this time, if he has some Desoxyn. Which he replies by the negative.* [23:08] <Jonah> Mmm? Carolyn, what's up? [23:08] <~SU_Tempest> [Carolyn] Jonah, I think we should leave... There is something really wrong with that person... [23:09] <Jonah> You noticed it too? He's almost lifeless. [23:09] <Jonah> We should try to help him. [23:09] <~SU_Tempest> [Carolyn] He's a drug addict. [23:09] <Jonah> Yeah. [23:09] <~SU_Tempest> [Carolyn] Come on, let's just go. [23:09] <Jonah> Aren't there rehabilitation clinics or anything here? [23:10] <Jonah> Leaving him to rot just seems too... sad. [23:10] <~SU_Tempest> [Carolyn] What, like a place to help addicts? Not really. Hospitals just default responsibility. [23:10] <~SU_Tempest> [Carolyn] Their excuse is that they bit it, thus they bought it, and consequently it's their own problem. [23:11] <Jonah> That is a really goddamn shitty thing to say. [23:11] <Jonah> Ugh - what room are you in? Maybe Seiichi will have some pity on him. [23:11] <~SU_Tempest> [Yousei] Why does it matter what room number this is? I don't really care. I don't leave anyway. [23:12] <Jonah> Room - 369. And Seiichi was quadruple digits. Nuts. [23:13] <Jonah> It's... Carolyn. We have to help him /somehow./ [23:13] <~SU_Tempest> *The yousei gets on his PC again, and begins searching on MazeNet. Or rather, he pulls the Search page and remains there, staring at the input bar. As if trying to think of something to search for.* [23:13] <~SU_Tempest> *Carolyn looks defeated.* [23:14] <~SU_Tempest> [Carolyn] It's a whole lot more trouble than it seems, Jonah. We should just leave. [23:14] * Jonah leans in closer to try and prevent Miki from hearing. "Do you spot anything that we could steal? Maybe that'll help a bit." [23:14] <Jonah> I know it's a lot of trouble, but... [23:14] <Jonah> What kind of person would I be if I leave someone who needs help? [23:14] <~SU_Tempest> [Carolyn] *Mutter* Are you crazy? He has -nothing of value-! He doesn't have weapons, I don't even see any food around... [23:15] <&Hebizuka> *Raider glances at the television...* [23:15] <&Hebizuka> @whatsonTV [23:15] <MazeBot> [Sitcom] Giant Teacher Oni [GTO] [23:15] <&Hebizuka> *A crappy sitcom started. Ayako shifts, and wants to push Raider out of the way.* [23:15] <Jonah> *Mutter* We could always steal the sheets off his bed. Or the PC. /Something./ [23:16] <&Hebizuka> *CRASH* [23:16] <Jonah> HO FUCK. [23:16] <&Hebizuka> *Suddenly the yousei animates itself, and from lifeless, blasé-bored-of-life, his eyes instantly turn to utter and complete surprise. Ayako accidentally knocked over the television, which is now in pieces on the floor.* [23:16] <~SU_Tempest> [Raider] Oh crap. [23:16] <Jonah> ...Ayako I love you. [23:17] <~SU_Tempest> [Yousei] ......... [23:17] <&Hebizuka> *The yousei stands up, and looks at the mess.* [23:17] <Jonah> Miki, do you still want to stay in this room? [23:17] <~SU_Tempest> [Raider] Um... She's sorry. [23:18] <~SU_Tempest> *The yousei grabs a glass shard from the smashed television.* [23:18] <Jonah> HOLY FUCK STOP HIM! [23:18] <~SU_Tempest> [Yousei] There's one thing I hate more than thieves... It's people who BREAK MY THINGS. [23:18] <~SU_Tempest> *The yousei wants to start a fight!* [23:19] <Jonah> Oh good, he's not going to kill himself. [23:19] <Jonah> Don't kill him, just knock him out! [23:20] <&Hebizuka> *Raider instinctively draws his M9, but has the presence of mind of NOT aiming at the chest. He's going for three shots in the legs.* [23:20] <&Hebizuka> *Carolyn won't attempt a thing.* [23:20] <&Hebizuka> *Will you attempt something?* [23:20] <Jonah> *Whip, Disarming the Yousei.* [23:21] <&Hebizuka> *The yousei tries swinging his glass shard at Raider.* [23:21] <&Hebizuka> *Order this turn: Yousei, Raider, You.* [23:21] <&Hebizuka> *Yousei's turn...* [23:21] <&Hebizuka> @bodyaim [23:21] <MazeBot> [LIMB] Right arm [23:21] <&Hebizuka> @roll 2d6 [23:21] <MazeBot> Hebizuka: 10 [23:22] <&Hebizuka> *The crazed yousei manages to swing the glass shard at Raider's arm, but it's not like it has much of an effect - he is protected by his Twaron arm pads, which easily bounce any damage off.* [23:22] <&Hebizuka> *Raider's turn...* [23:23] <&Hebizuka> @roll 3#2d6 [23:23] <MazeBot> Hebizuka: 4;10;5 [23:23] <&Hebizuka> *Shots 1-3: Miss, Hit, Miss.* [23:24] <&Hebizuka> *One round to the leg doesn't do much, though it does cause some pain to the yousei.* [23:24] <&Hebizuka> *Your turn. You may roll now.* [23:25] <Jonah> @roll 2d6 [23:25] <MazeBot> Jonah: 8 [23:25] <&Hebizuka> *Disarm successful! You caught the glass shard with the bullwhip, and threw it off of the yousei's hands!* [23:26] <&Hebizuka> *End of Turn 1. The glass shard lands somewhere on your side.* [23:26] <&Hebizuka> *Turn 2...* [23:26] <~SU_Tempest> *The yousei shrieks and screams at you, howling something about giving him back his stuff.* [23:27] <~SU_Tempest> *It doesn't look like he'll make any further attempts to attack anyone, though. [23:27] <&Hebizuka> *What will you do?* [23:28] * Jonah groans as the most stupid idea pops into her head. [23:28] <Jonah> *1 hug, yousei.* [23:29] <&Hebizuka> *Attempt to ... hug the yousei?* [23:30] <Jonah> *Yeah, poor dude looks like he needs someone to cry on. And any emotional outburst is better than what we saw earlier.* [23:31] <&Hebizuka> *Opposed rolls. Roll 2d6.* [23:31] <Jonah> @roll 2d6 [23:31] <MazeBot> Jonah: 7 [23:31] <&Hebizuka> @roll 2d6 Yousei [23:31] <MazeBot> Hebizuka, Yousei: 8 [23:31] <&Hebizuka> *The yousei pushes you away, but makes no further attempts of violence.* [23:31] <&Hebizuka> *End of fight! (2 turns)* [23:32] <Jonah> I'm sorry, that bullet must have hurt. Want me to take care of it? [23:32] <~SU_Tempest> [Raider] What a little shit. He tried to shank me. [23:32] <~SU_Tempest> [Yousei] You broke my stuff and you stole my glass! [23:33] <Jonah> You were covered head to toe in armor, Raider. [23:33] <~SU_Tempest> [Raider] Doesn't matter. Intent is bad enough. [23:34] <Jonah> Not if the person is mentally addled. [23:34] <~SU_Tempest> [Raider] I say we leave and let him bathe in his anger. If I stay here too long I think I'm going to kill him. [23:34] <Jonah> We can't /leave/ him like this, Raider. [23:34] <~SU_Tempest> [Raider] Yes, yes we can. And we better. Because I'm really going to shoot him. [23:35] <Jonah> I'll shoot /you/ if you shoot him. [23:35] <~SU_Tempest> *The yousei has all but abandoned the idea of fighting back, but he shoots angry glares at Raider while sitting near the broken television.* [23:35] <~SU_Tempest> [Raider] Then let's LEAVE. [23:35] <~SU_Tempest> [Raider] There is nothing we can do for him! [23:35] <Jonah> We could bring him with us. I have two doses of Lorazepam. [23:36] <~SU_Tempest> [Raider] Oh hell no. [23:36] <~SU_Tempest> [Carolyn] I know you hate to hear this word, but no, please no... This is too big of a burden. [23:37] <&Hebizuka> *Ayako shifts again. Even though she can't talk, it seems, by the way she is shaking her fists in the air, that she is angry on her own. Which is much bigger of a concern.* [23:37] <Jonah> Carolyn, what's the goddamn /point/ if we can't help people who need it? [23:37] <&Hebizuka> *CRASH.* [23:37] <Jonah> That's - oh god Ayako don't punch Miki in the [23:37] <&Hebizuka> *This time she destroyed the table.* [23:37] <Jonah> fuuuuck. [23:37] <Jonah> Oh, thank god. [23:37] <&Hebizuka> *Prompting Miki to shriek again.* [23:38] <&Hebizuka> *CRACK.* [23:38] <&Hebizuka> *In pieces goes the first chair.* [23:38] <&Hebizuka> *CRACK. In pieces goes the second chair!* [23:38] <Jonah> Oh Jesus Ayako what are you doing. [23:39] <~SU_Tempest> *The yousei is devastated, and has all but lost the strength to scream back.* [23:39] <~SU_Tempest> *Ayako is relentless, and continues breaking the rest of his furniture - destroying the radio which flies in pieces of plastic, metal, and circuit, before moving on to the PC. At this point, the yousei screams a big "NO, NOT THE PC". When the yousei finally moves from his spot and hugs the PC protectively... Ayako stops.* [23:41] <~SU_Tempest> [Yousei] Not the computer... PLEASE not the computer... I'll stop being bad, I'll stop being bad! Please don't break more of my stuff... And leave! LEAVE! I PROMISE I'LL STOP. *He breaks into tears, continues to plea at Ayako for her to stop, and the party to leave.* [23:41] <Jonah> Miki. Why do you like your PC that much? [23:41] * Jonah bends down to look at Miki eye to eye. "You promise? Swear to all the gods?" [23:42] <~SU_Tempest> *He nods, furiously.* [23:42] <~SU_Tempest> [Yousei] I PROMISE. I PROMISE TO THE GODS. NOW PLEASE LEAVE. [23:42] <Jonah> Alright, just give me a second. [23:43] * Jonah pulls out a First Aid Kit and gets to bandaging Miki's shot up leg. [23:43] <~SU_Tempest> *The yousei backs the fuck up, crashing on the floor in the process, to get away from you and the FAK.* [23:43] <~SU_Tempest> [Yousei] NO. NOT THE MEDS. DON'T GIVE ME THE MEDS. GET OUT. GET OUT! [23:43] <~SU_Tempest> *Raider tugs your shoulder by now.* [23:44] <~SU_Tempest> [Raider] Can we do what he asks now? Please? [23:44] <~SU_Tempest> [Raider] There is so much crazy I can withstand. [23:44] <Jonah> ...Alright. [23:44] <Jonah> Miki, make sure not to use that leg too much for a bit, okay? [23:44] <&Hebizuka> *As a reminder, it's one door ahead.* [23:45] * Jonah bites her lip, before pulling out 200 P$, and leaving them on the floor. [23:45] <Jonah> Use this to buy what you need to become a servant. Or a porn star. [23:45] <&Hebizuka> *The yousei ignores the money, and huddles himself in the corner.* [23:45] <Jonah> Or an artist. Any of them will be okay. [23:45] <Jonah> !mrooms1 [23:45] <&Hebizuka> [ Jonah ] Unique door: 577 - Roomstyle: 77 - Enemy strength: 3 /6 [23:45] * Jonah picks up her unused medkit and GTFOs. [23:46] <&Hebizuka> *Total money carried remaining: 1350 P$* [23:47] <&Hebizuka> *A hub room. Three different choices open up to you: Slots, Bank, or Special Stage. Which way?* [23:48] <Jonah> Oh fucking god I feel sick. [23:48] <Jonah> I - I don't want to decide. I'm exhausted. You three choose. [23:48] <Jonah> Flip a coin if you have to. [23:48] <~SU_Tempest> [Carolyn] Slots. [23:48] <~SU_Tempest> [Raider] Yeah, slots. [23:48] <Jonah> Slots it is. [23:49] <&Hebizuka> *You meet again with the MazeSlot Machine. 3 credits are pre-loaded this time.* [23:51] <&Hebizuka> *Congratulations for passing 300 rooms!* [23:52] * Jonah has to take a moment to compose herself and choke down the bile that's threatening to rise up. [23:52] <Jonah> Any of you want to pull the lever? I... I don't feel like it at the moment. [23:52] <~SU_Tempest> [Carolyn] I'll do it. You sit down and rest, okay? [23:54] <&Hebizuka> *She pulls the lever, thus making the reels spin...* [23:55] * Jonah can't get the words out, so instead she just shakily nods her head before curling into a ball. [23:56] <&Hebizuka> Row 1: Pill - Pill - Pill [23:56] <&Hebizuka> Row 2: Amulet - Bandage - Bandage [23:56] <&Hebizuka> Row 3: Lucky 7 - Knife - Wrench [23:56] <&Hebizuka> *Win! The machine spits out an item.* [23:56] <Jonah> Watch it be Deoxysin. [23:56] <&Hebizuka> [Meds] Vial - Universal antidote - Cures poisoning - Weight: 0.1 [23:57] <Jonah> Oh. Something useful for once. [23:58] <Jonah> We - still have two more, right? [23:58] <Jonah> Raider, Ayako, either of you fancy a shot? [23:58] <~SU_Tempest> *Take the antidote?* [23:58] <Jonah> And - someone pick up the antidote, please. Never enough of those around. [23:59] <&Hebizuka> *Raider takes it.* [00:01] <&Hebizuka> *Carolyn spins it once more.* [00:01] <Jonah> Okay, so... who wants round 2? [00:02] <&Hebizuka> Row 1: Bullet - Amulet - Pistol [00:02] <&Hebizuka> Row 2: Wrench - Skull - Lucky 7 [00:02] <&Hebizuka> Row 3: Cross - Tentacle - Cherry [00:02] <&Hebizuka> *Nothing! 1 cr left.* [00:03] <~SU_Tempest> [Carolyn] I'll be spinning the last one. [00:03] * Jonah gets up, slowly walking over to spin - [00:03] <Jonah> Oh, okay. [00:03] <Jonah> Best of luck to you. [00:05] <&Hebizuka> Row 1: Bandage - Pill - Skull [00:05] <&Hebizuka> Row 2: Explosion - Pill - Amulet [00:05] <&Hebizuka> Row 3: Tentacle - Tentacle - Tentacle [00:07] <&Hebizuka> *Uh-oh. The machine extends a robotic arm, at the end of which is a syringe, which promptly aims itself towards Carolyn, injecting its contents. The results are rather quick to notice... Her face is flushed red pretty much instantly, and she... looks odd.* [00:07] <&Hebizuka> *It seems Carolyn looks disoriented.* [00:07] <Jonah> ...Carolyn, that was an aphrodisiac, wasn't it. [00:08] <~SU_Tempest> [Carolyn] May the gods forgive me for my acts and my horrible thoughts and words past, present and future... because... i'm so sorry again but... YES. it was an aphrodisiac. And I feel disgusting right now. [00:09] <~SU_Tempest> [Carolyn] I-I- I'll tough it out... I swear... [00:09] <Jonah> Carolyn... we can give you some privacy. The gods wouldn't mind, I promise. [00:10] <~SU_Tempest> [Carolyn] T-that'd be indecent! What do you want to give me p-privacy for?! [00:11] <Jonah> We look away, and you go behind the Mazeslot machine to... relax. [00:11] <Jonah> This isn't something you can tough out. Heavens know I've tried too many times. [00:11] <~SU_Tempest> [Carolyn] LEWD! Let's just m-move on or something! [00:11] <Jonah> Carolyn. Tell me with a straight face you can concentrate like this. You're /already/ wobbly. [00:12] <Jonah> No one will see or hear, honest to gods. We'll turn our heads and plug our ears. [00:15] <~SU_Tempest> [Carolyn] I CAN'T DO THAT. [00:15] <Jonah> Alright. [00:16] * Jonah stands up - and rushes over to kiss her. [00:16] <&Hebizuka> *Opposed rolls! Roll 2d6.* [00:16] <Jonah> @roll 2d6 [00:16] <MazeBot> Jonah: 4 [00:16] <&Hebizuka> @roll 2d6 Carolyn [00:16] <MazeBot> Hebizuka, Carolyn: 9 [00:16] <&Hebizuka> *She still successfully keeps you at bay.* [00:17] <&Hebizuka> *No matter what, you can't force a miko!* [00:17] <Jonah> Okay, fine.
