From Mazeworld

[15:19] <&Hebizuka> *Welcome back to the Mazes, Thidran. You've visited 15 rooms, the next special room is at the 28th (in 13 rooms). You're perfectly healthy, no problems or conditions you can feel or notice. * [15:19] <&Hebizuka> *Type !mrooms3 to begin.* [15:19] <Thidran> !mrooms3 [15:19] <&Hebizuka> [ Thidran ] Left door: 4321 - Front door: 7287 - Right door: 2083 - Roomstyle: 556 - Enemy strength: 2 /6 [15:19] * Thidran takes the front door. [15:23] <&Hebizuka> *You barge into someone's bedroom. The usual furniture can be found there: Bed, TV, radio, table and chairs, desk, computer, drawers. The bedroom has an occupant, a citizen carrying a shoulder bag, and for some reason, a meat fork. They're currently watching the television. You also notice a bulk can of ammunition in the corner!...* [15:26] <Thidran> @whatsontv [15:26] <MazeBot> [News] Kitsune News - Pro-youkai news channel [15:27] * Thidran hums to himself as he takes a look at what the citizen is watching, and tilts his head. "What the hell's that...?" He murmurs to himself, before looking at the bulk can. [15:27] <~SU_Tempest> [Citizen] That? That's youkai news. Anyway who are you and why are you in my room? I didn't order a pizza, did I? [15:27] <&Hebizuka> [Ammunition] Bulk can of 9x19mm Parabellum, FMJ, 1000 rounds - [532/1000] - Weight: 5.32 [15:29] * Thidran leans against a wall, as he looks intently at the citizen. "Well, I'm not from around here. Kind of lost actually." [15:29] <~SU_Tempest> [Citizen] Right.... So what sector are you from? Cuz this is 72. Room 7287, to be accurate. I hope you're not from TOO far away, I hear it's a bitch to do long-distance traveling these days. [15:29] <Thidran> Ummm.... [15:30] * Thidran thinks upon how to explain it. "I'm not even from this...place at all." He eventually replies. [15:31] <~SU_Tempest> [Citizen] O...kay. Well, I'll understand what you're trying to say eventually. Anyhow... Just don't steal or break anything, okay? I have a meat fork. It's pointy and mean and I'd hate to use it. [15:31] * Thidran nods carefully at the citizen. "I think I was called a Contestant, if that gives you any help." [15:32] <~SU_Tempest> [Citizen] *Wide-eyed* No shit? For real? Like those shrine maiden stories talked about? Whoaaaa, damn. I'm ultra honored to be in your presence! So you're gonna save the world or some shit? [15:34] * Thidran shrugs his shoulders. "I'd have to figure out what this place even is for a start. I just got here, got given a bunch of random stuff, and got pushed out. If what you say is true, and these doors are numbered sectors, then I'm going through them at random, with no control over it. On the positive side, long distance movement! Negative side...well...yeah." [15:36] <~SU_Tempest> [Citizen] Oh yeah... The shrine maidens talked about that eventuality too. Well, you're in luck. If you's need any help of any kind, just ask. ...Anything except asking me to come with you. I'm a hopeless sedentary. [15:37] * Thidran ponders on things while he looks around the bedroom. "Well, do you have any use for that stash of ammunition by chance? Figured I'd ask." [15:38] <~SU_Tempest> [Citizen] Well, um, no. I don't. But it's still a lot of the stuff and I 'd hate to just give it away. How about you buy it from me? Oh I won't make you an overly expensive shop price... Fuck them. How about.. 200 P$ for the whole can? [15:39] * Thidran checks what funds he currently has. "Well...I do happen to have money from a protection gig that I recently did. Seems fair enough, although I have no idea of pricing anyways. It's a deal!" With that, he produces the money he had recently earned for the citizen, and picks up the bulk can for himself. [15:40] <~SU_Tempest> [Citizen] You know, they'd charge you one coin per round, in a shop! You're making a deal! [15:40] <&Hebizuka> *Purchase 532 rounds of 9x19mm FMJ for 200 P$?* [15:40] <Thidran> *Yes.* [15:41] <&Hebizuka> [Pack/Main] 26.83/40 [15:41] <&Hebizuka> *You're out of money.* [15:42] <~SU_Tempest> [Citizen] Why thank you, sir! Now, all you need is a 9mm weapon and you're set for three months! [15:42] <~SU_Tempest> [Citizen] Maybe less, if you plan to save the world and kick a lot of butt. [15:42] * Thidran gives the citizen a deep bow. "Appreciate the kind trade. As for me, I guess I've got more doors to go through. Have a nice day." [15:43] <Thidran> !mrooms3 [15:43] <&Hebizuka> [ Thidran ] Left door: 5442 - Front door: 7090 - Right door: 7060 - Roomstyle: 485 - Enemy strength: 2 /6 [15:43] <~SU_Tempest> [Citizen] Damn right! [15:43] * Thidran gives the citizen a wave before taking the door on the right. [15:46] <&Hebizuka> *A regular, featureless room. The room appears completely empty.* [15:49] * Thidran looks for traps. [15:49] <&Hebizuka> *You see none. It's a dead room.* [15:50] * Thidran nods to himself, before checking for doors. [15:50] <Thidran> !mrooms3 [15:50] <&Hebizuka> [ Thidran ] Left door: 2829 - Front door: 1521 - Right door: 5653 - Roomstyle: 378 - Enemy strength: 3 /6 [15:50] * Thidran takes the middle door. [15:53] <&Hebizuka> *Another regular, featureless room. You notice a package on the floor...* [15:54] * Thidran looks for traps first. [15:54] <&Hebizuka> *Still none.* [15:54] * Thidran then approaches the package. [15:54] <&Hebizuka> [Food] Rations - Military Rations - Accuracy. Contents: 1x Mac and cheese, canned, 400g + 1 energy bar + 10 crackers + 1 can of lemonade + 2 Diazepam. Weight: 2 [15:55] * Thidran hums. "Well! Things are looking up!" With that, he greedily picks up the rations, and puts them in his pack. [15:56] <&Hebizuka> [Pack/Main] 28.83/40 [15:57] <Thidran> !mrooms34 [15:57] <Thidran> !mrooms3 [15:57] <&Hebizuka> [ Thidran ] Left door: 4173 - Front door: 5680 - Right door: 6035 - Roomstyle: 69 - Enemy strength: 5 /6 [15:57] * Thidran takes the door on the left. [15:59] <&Hebizuka> *A shooting range. It is currently unoccupied. You spot clothing on the floor...* [15:59] * Thidran looks around for traps, before approaching the clothing... [16:00] <&Hebizuka> *No trap.* [16:00] <&Hebizuka> [Clothing] Legs addon - Kevlar leg pads - AC Kevlar-3 - Blunt-PROOF, Sharp-resistant, Piercing-resistant - Weight: 5 - [Cond: Good] [16:03] * Thidran goes to pick up the leg pads for now... [16:03] <Thidran> !mrooms3 [16:03] <&Hebizuka> [ Thidran ] Left door: 2239 - Front door: 1817 - Right door: 3716 - Roomstyle: 562 - Enemy strength: 3 /6 [16:03] <&Hebizuka> *Spare them in the backpack?* [16:04] <Thidran> *Spared.* [16:04] * Thidran takes the door to the left. [16:04] <&Hebizuka> [Pack/Main] 33.83/40 [16:05] <&Hebizuka> *A mess hall. You spot a butler sweeping the floor with his eternally faithful broom. Someone forgot food behind, on one of the tables.* [16:06] * Thidran goes to take a look at the food. [16:06] <&Hebizuka> [Food] Snacks - Bag of peanut chocolates, small size (27) - 278kcal [16:06] * Thidran hums at that, before asking the butler. "Hey there, this your snack?" [16:06] <~SU_Tempest> [Butler] No sir. I would assume this belonged to someone else who was there before. [16:08] * Thidran thinks on it. "Well, I guess he doesn't really need it if they're just going to leave it." He muses on that, before picking up the chocolates, and putting it in his bag. "Hum. Before I go, how's the pay with your job?" [16:08] <&Hebizuka> [Pack/Main] 34.93/40 [16:09] <~SU_Tempest> [Butler] *sigh* Eighty-five a day. I'm on minimum wage since I have no private employer. [16:10] * Thidran rubs his chin. "Could be worse fates I guess. Managed to get a decent stock of ammunition earlier for a whole two hundred. Over five hundreds rounds worth. Maybe you can save up and do some wheeling and dealing for extra cash? Just a suggestion." With that, he bows to the butler. "As for me, I have places to go." [16:10] <Thidran> !mrooms3 [16:10] <&Hebizuka> [ Thidran ] Left door: 2351 - Front door: 400 - Right door: 6834 - Roomstyle: 334 - Enemy strength: 1 /6 [16:11] <~SU_Tempest> [Butler] I um, appreciate the suggestion. I suppose. Stay safe, sir. [16:12] * Thidran furrows his brows, and pauses. "Um...you too! Stay safe!" He murmurs under his breath. "Stay safe eh? Mm...keep that one in mind..." He then goes through the middle door. [16:14] <&Hebizuka> *A locker room, with many lockers for clothing storage. You see one of them is open and contains clothing. In another one, you see a belt, but not quite the clothing kind.* [16:15] * Thidran looks around for traps, before approaching the clothing first. [16:15] <&Hebizuka> *No traps here.* [16:16] <&Hebizuka> [Clothing] Legs addon - Armored knee pads (Knees only) - AC Kevlar-2 - Blunt-PROOF, Sharp-PROOF, Piercing-PROOF - Weight: 5 - [Cond: Damaged] [16:18] * Thidran considers, before swapping out the spare helmet he has with the knee pads, then heads for the belt. [16:19] <&Hebizuka> [Ammunition] Ammo belt, 7.62x51mm NATO, 50 rounds. For use with the Heckler & Koch HK21. - [5/50, 5x Seg] - Weight: 1+0.1 (1.1) [16:20] <Thidran> What the hell is that...? [16:21] * Thidran pokes at the belt, before picking it up to place it into his pack. [16:22] <&Hebizuka> [Pack/Main] 35.93/40 [16:23] <Thidran> !mrooms3 [16:23] <&Hebizuka> [ Thidran ] Left door: 3431 - Front door: 4792 - Right door: 1811 - Roomstyle: 28 - Enemy strength: 3 /6 [16:23] * Thidran considers, before taking the door on the right. [16:24] <&Hebizuka> *You go down a flight of stairs, and reach a regular, featureless room. You spot a really interesting weapon...* [16:25] * Thidran looks around for traps, before approaching the weapon... [16:25] <&Hebizuka> *No traps found.* [16:25] <&Hebizuka> [Weapon] Class 1 - Hawk MM-1 grenade launcher | 40mm NATO grenade - Semi-auto | Scope(I) | Cylinder, 12 rounds | Weight: 14 - [0/12, Empty] - Cond: Good / Clns: Grimy [16:25] <&Hebizuka> *Bummer! It's empty.* [16:26] * Thidran looks at the weapon blankly. [16:27] * Thidran then checks his backpack. "Hrm, that looks like it might be worth some money..." He mutters. "Hrm. I could use some food, now that I think on it." With that, he has himself a snack of the food he recently found. "Good ol' goobers...." he mutters to himself. [16:29] <&Hebizuka> *You tear the bag open, and happily eat up the little chocolate-coated peanuts. They were delicious and really filling.* [16:29] <&Hebizuka> [Pack/main] 34.93/40 [16:29] * Thidran rummages through his pack, and has a turnip as well, scrunching up his face as he does so. "Not really my thing, but I gotta see if I can make enough room..." [16:30] <&Hebizuka> *You consume the vegetable. After the peanuts, that leaves an odd combination of tastes...* [16:31] * Thidran works his mouth, and frowns. "Ugh...let's see, what else do I have...?" He continues rummaging, and pulls out a sandwich to chow down on. "Oh, I'll be making room for you, that's for sure..." [16:33] <&Hebizuka> *Eat only one, or both?* [16:33] <Thidran> *Both.* [16:34] <&Hebizuka> *You free the sandwiches from their packaging, and chomp them all down.* [16:34] <&Hebizuka> *Quite tasty and delicious.* [16:34] <&Hebizuka> [Pack/Main] 31.93/40 [16:35] * Thidran ponders his next move, then abruptly decides to put down the damaged knee pads. "Okay, that's a bit more space...now what?" [16:36] * Thidran eventually opts to have himself some of that caramel popcorn that he was going to have earlier. [16:37] <&Hebizuka> *Dropped the damaged knee pads.* [16:37] <&Hebizuka> *You now tear open the packaging for the bag of caramel popcorn, and proceed to feast on it. Quite the interesting meal today...* [16:37] <&Hebizuka> *You're feeling stuffed. You are satiated for the time being.* [16:38] <&Hebizuka> [Pack/Main] 25.93/40 [16:38] * Thidran checks his bag, and sees if he can fit the grenade launcher into there. "Worth a shot." [16:41] <&Hebizuka> [Pack/Main] 39.93/40 [16:42] * Thidran nods satisfactorily for now, before heading for the doors. [16:42] <Thidran> !mrooms3 [16:42] <&Hebizuka> [ Thidran ] Left door: 2268 - Front door: 1836 - Right door: 3390 - Roomstyle: 268 - Enemy strength: 4 /6 [16:42] * Thidran takes the door to the right. [16:45] <&Hebizuka> *You make it inside an office. As always, the workspace has four desks, four computers, a printer, file cases, and the usual office clutter. You notice a post-it note on PC #1, and a lot of drawers which might contain things inside.* [16:46] * Thidran hums thoughtfully, and reads the note first. [16:47] <&Hebizuka> [Note] "Login: smorris - Password: o576neeshalove" [16:50] * Thidran hums thoughtfully at that, before he logs into the computer. He has an eerie sense of deja vu as he looks through the operating system. "Hum. One thing that never changes, it takes time to boot up." While he waits, he starts looking through some drawers. [16:51] <&Hebizuka> [PC] "Welcome, Sarah Morris." [16:52] <&Hebizuka> *You find something interesting inside one of the drawers.* [16:52] <&Hebizuka> [Ammunition] Roll of nailgun nails, 50 nails - [24/50] - Weight: 0.24 [16:53] * Thidran looks at it sidelong. "Interesting..." He sets the nails off to the right of his keyboard, and considers them as he looks through the icons. "Place is more advanced than I thought...has television...computers...bet with my luck there's even the internet in some form." [16:56] <&Hebizuka> *You see a folder named "source", another called "other stuff", and an icon named "MazeNet". The desktop background displays the logo of "No.9 Entertainment", with the "9" being a stylized basketball with whoosh lines.* [16:56] <&Hebizuka> *It looks like you're in the offices of a programming team.* [16:57] * Thidran tilts his head as he looks at his options, before looking up the first folder. "Might as well see what this is." [16:57] <Thidran> "Source eh?" [16:58] <&Hebizuka> *Inside is a single folder, called "minigolf3.4".* [16:59] * Thidran looks into the minigolf folder. "Heh, if this is what passes for entertainment..." [17:00] <&Hebizuka> *The new folder contains dozens of files with weird extensions, and nothing that looks executable, other than a "notes.txt".* [17:00] * Thidran frowns at that, before reluctantly clicking on the notes text. "Figures it's not made yet." [17:03] <&Hebizuka> [notes.txt] MINI-GOLF MAGISTER - VERSION 3.4 ; Still under development. This file contains the source code. CHANGES PLANNED FROM LAST VERSION: Minor bugfixes. 12 new golf ball textures. Addition of a texture editor to create custom golf balls. STILL UNDER DEVELOPMENT - Copyright 704 No.9 Entertainment. -- P.S.: Sarah, please get this done really fast. Angry customer complaints have piled up by the hundreds. [17:04] * Thidran smirks at reading that. "Somehow, I'm not surprised." With that, he heads out of that particular folder, then heads for "otherstuff". [17:04] <&Hebizuka> *Empty folder! Surprisingly enough.* [17:06] * Thidran nods at that, before clicking off, and heading towards MazeNet. "Well, first step for me is figuring out what being a Contestant means. With the way that guy was looking at me a bit ago..." [17:07] <&Hebizuka> *Opening MazeNet lands you on Search, the default page which is, amazingly enough, a search engine.* [17:08] * Thidran types out "Contestant" and hits enter. [17:08] <&Hebizuka> *Search suggests reading a relevant article on InfoBase.* [17:09] * Thidran clicks on the article in InfoBase. [17:11] <&Hebizuka> [InfoBase] A "Contestant" (possibly "The Contestant" or "The Chosen One") is the title of an elusive otherworldly being mentioned in a religious prophecy created at the start of this era. The name is, for some reason, more popular in common parlance than the other term used to refer to it, "Chosen One", despite "Contestant" being written only once, while "Chosen One" is mentioned four times. *Read more?* [17:12] * Thidran furrows his brows, before reading further into it. "So basically...i'm a mythical entity to th-alright, why'd I get chosen out of all the other options out there?" [17:13] <&Hebizuka> [InfoBase] No public information is known about the Contestant, and no indication is made as to whom it might be. The only source of information available appears to be the prophecy and various oral stories told within the religious community. There is no way to know who or what it might be, only that it is supposedly the only one able to see and find the Cardinal Amulets, powerful artifacts supposedly made by the Gods. [17:14] <&Hebizuka> [InfoBase] Still according to the prophecy, the Contestant's purpose is to "triumph against all forces that oppose it(...)", collect and reunite the Amulets in order to "(...)summon the divine power within", and "restore order and peace, and establish a new era(...)". As of today, none of the stories or the prophecy are confirmed as true, and the Contestant remains an unseen legend. [17:14] <&Hebizuka> *InfoBase links to an excerpt to the full prophecy.* [17:15] * Thidran clicks on the link, frowning. [17:15] <&Hebizuka> *A text file is displayed within the browser. ( http://pastebin.com/HFQ3TZJ6 ) * [17:19] * Thidran takes his time to read up the entirety of the prophecy, before printing it up, along with the article on the Contestant. He then pauses, grins, and heads back to search. "Wait, just realized something. If we have computers, television, and the internet....won't we have a phone too?" With that, he types in "Phone" before hitting enter. [17:22] <&Hebizuka> *Search again suggests an InfoBase article.* [17:22] * Thidran clicks the InfoBase article. [17:25] <&Hebizuka> *The article essentially informs you of the existence of a telephone network, which is exclusively mobile phone based, though the phone number system is a little weird - the number changes according to the phoneowner's current location.* [17:27] * Thidran ponders on that. "Interesting..." He then pauses. "Well, if I ever get a phone, might as well know the important parts..." With that, he looks up "Common phone numbers". [17:28] <&Hebizuka> *InfoBase lists only two, which are the emergency numbers: 9-1 for police, and 9-2 for medical assistance.* [17:29] <&Hebizuka> *Search does however suggest a page which lists "all service numbers!".* [17:29] * Thidran clicks on the link for the listing of service numbers. "Handy!" [17:33] <&Hebizuka> Gun shops: 5-GUN-SHOP [17:33] <&Hebizuka> Weapon shops: 5-WPN-SHOP [17:33] <&Hebizuka> Blacksmiths: 5-BLK-SMTH [17:33] <&Hebizuka> Clothes shops: 5-CLO-THES [17:33] <&Hebizuka> Food service (Delis and restaurants): 5-GET-FOOD [17:33] <&Hebizuka> Hiring bureaus: 5-NOT-NEET [17:33] <&Hebizuka> Dojos: 5-ASS-KICK [17:33] <&Hebizuka> Workshops: 5-WRK-SHOP [17:33] <&Hebizuka> Banks: 5-PLR-BANK [17:33] <&Hebizuka> Access to children zone: 5-KID-MAZE [17:34] * Thidran prints the whole works out, and adds to the growing stack of papers he's acquiring... [17:35] <&Hebizuka> *I won't consider that meaningless items, but rather notes you can keep.* [17:36] * Thidran thinks a bit longer, puts together the stack of papers, and digs up some writing implements in case he needs to add more notes. He puts the works in his backpack, before rummaging through it. He eventually leaves a can of baked beans, and exchanges it for the roll of nails. [17:39] <&Hebizuka> [Pack/Main] 38.17/40 [17:39] * Thidran thinks a minute or two longer after packing everything up. "Alright then. Quite informative. Hopefully I'll last long enough to put it to use." With that, he heads for the doors... [17:39] <Thidran> !mrooms3 [17:39] <&Hebizuka> [ Thidran ] Left door: 4186 - Front door: 2761 - Right door: 6916 - Roomstyle: 41 - Enemy strength: 2 /6 [17:39] * Thidran takes the door on the right. [17:51] <&Hebizuka> *A hospital bedroom, with a bed, a non-functional EKG, and minimal furniture. You notice a dossier left under the bed...* [17:51] * Thidran looks for traps, before reading up on the dossier... [17:51] <&Hebizuka> *No traps found.* [17:51] <&Hebizuka> [Document] Engineering specifications document #BC337 - Cutting and shaping boron carbide into plate-shaped objects [17:52] * Thidran tilts his head, before picking up the document. "The hell...?" [17:53] * Thidran hums, then shrugs, and checks the furniture around for loose change. "Finding random nails just a bit ago makes me feel lucky." [17:54] <&Hebizuka> *Everything here is empty. It even smells of disinfectant.* [17:55] * Thidran chuckles at that. "Well, at least the place is clean." [17:55] <Thidran> !mrooms3 [17:55] <&Hebizuka> [ Thidran ] Left door: 6295 - Front door: 6045 - Right door: 7193 - Roomstyle: 532 - Enemy strength: 3 /6 [17:55] * Thidran takes the door on the left. [17:57] <&Hebizuka> [Pack/Main] 39.17/40 [17:58] <&Hebizuka> *Another locker room! More clothing awaits in one of the lockers. You also notice there is something in another locker, but can't quite see what yet.* [17:59] * Thidran looks for traps first. [17:59] <&Hebizuka> * [17:59] <&Hebizuka> *No traps found* [17:59] * Thidran then takes a look at the new set of clothing. [18:00] <&Hebizuka> [Clothing] Top - T-Shirt (Upper body, Shoulders) - AC Light - Blunt-resistant - Weight: 3 - [Cond: Worn] [18:00] * Thidran scoffs, before heading towards the other locker. [18:00] <&Hebizuka> *It's open, and you find ...* [18:00] <&Hebizuka> [Weapon] Class 3 - H&K USP-40 pistol | .40 S&W - Semi-auto | No accessory | USP40 13-round mag, +1 | Weight: 3 - [10+1/13, 11x XAP] - Cond: Poor / Clns: Grimy [18:01] * Thidran opts to equip the grimy looking weapon. [18:01] <&Hebizuka> *You can equip it in Class TW slot, or replace your current C3 with it (Springfield XDM).* [18:06] * Thidran equips the pistol in the TW slot for now. [18:07] * Thidran then heads back to the t-shirt, and thinks on it. After a moment's pause, he exchanges it for his ragged looking one. "Might as well, looks a bit cleaner too." [18:10] <&Hebizuka> *Swapped T-Shirt (Damaged) for T-Shirt (Worn).* [18:10] <Thidran> !mrooms3 [18:10] <&Hebizuka> [ Thidran ] Left door: 50 - Front door: 5114 - Right door: 555 - Roomstyle: 327 - Enemy strength: 1 /6 [18:10] * Thidran takes the door on the right. [18:11] <&Hebizuka> *You make it inside a bar. The bartender is there, shotgun slung on the back. There is also a strange creature there - a jorougumo, which is a spider youkai, apparently enjoying a stout alcoholic drink. [18:13] * Thidran has himself a seat, then greets the bartender. and the other patron briefly. "Hey there!" [18:14] <~SU_Tempest> [Barkeep] Hi. [18:14] <~SU_Tempest> [Jorougumo] Hey. [18:16] * Thidran thinks a moment, and takes in the bar. "Would either of you happen to be in the market for more alcoholic drinks by chance?" [18:17] <~SU_Tempest> [Jorougumo] *Smirk* Always. [18:17] <~SU_Tempest> [Barkeep] And here I thought this was a bar, and not a marketplace. *Obvious sarcastic tone* [18:18] * Thidran slowly pulls out the three bottles he currently has on him. He grins sheepishly at the Barkeep. "Well, I have difficulties making it there." He shrugs, then points out each. "I happen to have a bottle of absinthe, red wine, and whiskey. Maybe either of you might have more use for it than me." [18:19] <~SU_Tempest> [Barkeep] Wow, he's actually serious about it,too. You really want to sell this stuff? I hope it's full and factory-sealed, at least. [18:19] <~SU_Tempest> [Jorougumo] Hey, give it to me if you really don't want any of this... Specially the absinthe. [18:19] * Thidran nods. "As far as I know it is. I don't touch the stuff myself." [18:19] <~SU_Tempest> [Barkeep] Can you keep it shut, spidergirl? He's offering to sell it. To me. [18:20] <~SU_Tempest> [Jorougumo] Oh, fine, fine. You know I'll order some later. [18:20] <~SU_Tempest> [Barkeep] Lessee... Yup. Looks unopened. And full. Guess I could buy it from you, but it's an exception, alright? [18:21] * Thidran nods. "Appreciate the gesture." He says gently. [18:21] <~SU_Tempest> [Barkeep] Hrm. Let's say I buy all three bottles for... 300 P$. [18:22] * Thidran looks towards the other patron briefly, then back to the Barkeep. "Well, it's just going to sit in my backpack otherwise. Might as well make room for it and rake in some cash." [18:23] <~SU_Tempest> [Barkeep] So. 300. Take it or leave it? [18:23] <Thidran> "Sure, I'll take it." [18:27] <~SU_Tempest> *You've sold the three bottles of alcohol for 300 P$, which he leaves for you on the counter.* [18:27] <&Hebizuka> [Money] 300 P$ [18:27] * Thidran picks up the money, and places it in his backpack. [18:28] <&Hebizuka> *Total money carried: 300 in pouch.* [18:28] <&Hebizuka> [Pack/main] 36.17/40 [18:28] <~SU_Tempest> [Barkeep] Surely this good sir would like to celebrate the successful sale with a drink? [18:28] * Thidran thinks about it for a long moment. "Alright, happen to have non-alcoholic drinks?" [18:29] <~SU_Tempest> [Barkeep] Why yes, I do. Name it. [18:29] <Thidran> I'd just like some green tea if you have it. [18:30] <~SU_Tempest> [Barkeep] Egh. Yes. I suppose I can make you a cup. It'll be 5 P$. [18:30] * Thidran pulls out the necessary money, and pays the man. "Appreciate it. I know, I'm boring...just habits from another life is all." [18:34] <~SU_Tempest> [Jorougumo] That's why I'm trying to tell him he shouldn't comment on what clients buy! [18:34] <~SU_Tempest> [Barkeep] You come here to get drunk and not pay a single thing because you KNOW you have a 2000 P$ credit. And you constantly order beer. [18:35] <~SU_Tempest> [Barkeep] How am I not mad at this? I'm not making any profit here. [18:35] * Thidran nods at the spidergirl. "Hey, as long as she's not running a tab, it should be alright." [18:35] <~SU_Tempest> [Jorougumo] Yup. That's right. [18:35] <~SU_Tempest> [Jorougumo] Oh I have a tab. It's just HE owes ME, not the other way around. *Smile* [18:36] <Thidran> "Exactly~!" [18:36] <Thidran> "So there's profit right there." [18:37] <Thidran> "I assume that you built up that credit in advance, and I know that those bottles that I sold him are worth far more than the amount he paid me...so over time, he'll make it back and then some..." [18:39] <~SU_Tempest> [Jorougumo] If only I wasn't his only regular client. [18:39] <~SU_Tempest> [Barkeep] Shut it, it's not true! [18:40] * Thidran grins at the barkeep. "Well, you have some work to do if you want to get better...part of the reason people go to a bar is to get drunk, but they also like good service as well. Arguing with your customers is a good way of chasing most away." He states with a twinkle in his eyes. [18:42] <~SU_Tempest> [Jorougumo] See? That guy, he's GOT this. [18:43] <~SU_Tempest> [Barkeep] Fine, fine. I guess people don't enjoy my sarcastic ramblings. [18:44] * Thidran chuckles softly. "Another thing to note is service should also be prompt. Is my tea being made?" [18:48] <~SU_Tempest> *He finally hands you your cup. It smells really good, and is piping hot.* [18:50] * Thidran gives the cup an appreciative sip. "Ahh...wonderful! You make good quality tea though, even if you do not like it." He takes his time sipping it, before regarding the spidergirl once more. "Y'know, for hell, this is downright peaceful." [18:52] <~SU_Tempest> [Jorougumo] What do you mean, Hell? [18:52] <~SU_Tempest> [Jorougumo] Heehee. This can't be Hell! Not as long as we have bartenders. [18:52] * Thidran rubs his chin. "A place for bad people to go when they die. I don't think you'd view this place in the same way as me though." [18:56] * Thidran eventually shrugs, and takes his time finishing his drink. "Anyways, might as well make the most of this second chance. Don't know why I'm still kicking even in this form, but I guess we'll see how long I last eh?" He gives the spidergirl a wide smile, before finishing off his drink. He carefully throws away the cup, before standing up once more. "Anyways, I've got a world to save I guess. ... [18:56] <Thidran> ... Stay safe you two!" [18:56] <~SU_Tempest> [Jorougumo] I dunno if it's where bad people go to. I mostly know it's where demons come from! [18:56] <~SU_Tempest> [Barkeep] Stay safe, weirdo. And come back again. [18:57] * Thidran thinks on it. "Well, considering I've already killed one demon that was around here...yeah." [18:57] <Thidran> Heh, I'll try. I don't hold any promises. [18:57] <Thidran> !mrooms3 [18:57] <&Hebizuka> [ Thidran ] Left door: 3312 - Front door: 1503 - Right door: 1258 - Roomstyle: 342 - Enemy strength: 1 /6 [18:57] <&Hebizuka> *The green tea had no effect on your hunger but it did serve to help you feel stronger.* [18:57] * Thidran takes the door on the left. [18:58] <&Hebizuka> *An electrical room. You see a power control computer, and you hear the hum of a generator working from behind the walls. You spot an object on the floor...* [18:59] * Thidran looks for traps first, then approaches the object. [19:02] <&Hebizuka> *No traps found.* [19:02] <&Hebizuka> [Meds] Blood Transfusion Kit (BTK) - Empty - Can contain up to 5.0 units of blood. - Weight: 1 [19:02] <&Hebizuka> *This blood transfusion kit is empty, but is equipped with an IV start kit which may allow you to extract blood from any creature - including yourself - in order to obtain its blood.* [19:04] * Thidran hums thoughtfully, before looking through the tools carefully. "Hrm....could be useful." He picks it up for now. [19:04] * Thidran then checks the computer on the off chance that there's a login not required. [19:10] <&Hebizuka> *Nope. It requires a login.* [19:11] <&Hebizuka> [Pack/Main] 37.17/40 [19:11] * Thidran then heads for the doors.

On the right, the hirer, his desk, and a myriad of ads and posters on the wall.* [21:26] * Thidran starts looking at the ads as he approaches the desk. "Hey there! I'm Thidran Brisbane, just checking to see if you have any more jobs available." [21:27] <~SU_Tempest> [Hirer] Hi, sir. Let me just check... Ah, yes. You're signed up. Looking for jobs? I might have something for you, yes. [21:28] <~SU_Tempest> [Hirer] Two jobs available. A bartender who needs temporary muscle for rough clients, and a dude who wants stolen merchandise back in his hands at all costs. [21:28] * Thidran raises a brow. "Rough clients eh? Guess I can handle that." [21:29] * Thidran thinks. "I'll be glad to help out the bartender." [21:32] <~SU_Tempest> [Hirer] He promises 450 P$ for the job. Still interested? [21:32] * Thidran nods. "Works for me. Could use the money." [21:33] * Thidran checks his guns in the meantime. [21:34] <&Hebizuka> *What do you wish to check?* [21:34] <&Hebizuka> *Also, when you're ready, step on the telepad.* [21:34] <Thidran> *The ammunition in each gun, even though I'm pretty sure of where I'm at with them.* [21:35] * Thidran steps onto the teleporter once he's sure that his guns are as fully loaded as he can get them. [21:39] <&Hebizuka> *You reappear in a bar. You hear some ambient music (@radio), and you see the bartender - alone, for the time being.* [21:39] <Thidran> @radio [21:39] <MazeBot> [Classic rock/Driving rock] .357 FM with DJ Bullseye - http://bit.ly/1cJLUMc [21:39] * Thidran approaches the bartender, and bows. "Hey there!" [21:39] <~SU_Tempest> [Barkeep] Heyo. Are you the help I asked for? [21:40] * Thidran nods. "Ayuh! What seems to be the problem?" [21:40] <&Hebizuka> *Current song on the radio: Losing my Religion* [21:41] <~SU_Tempest> [Barkeep] Well.. I kind of called ahead of schedule. It's about a group of rowdy clients. I -know- them. They always cause some shit, and they always end up breaking something. But this time I decided to take matters in my hands... [21:41] * Thidran nods. "Any idea what they'll be armed with?" [21:41] <~SU_Tempest> [Barkeep] Your task is simple, if they get violent, you have carte blanche to fuck them up any way you want. I'm tired of their antics, and considering they'll likely be already drunk OR violent when coming in... [21:42] <~SU_Tempest> [Barkeep] No idea. Saw em with blades, with pistols before, but I don't think it's really heavy gear. With that said, be vigilant. [21:42] * Thidran frowns at that. "Alright, I'll try not to bring out the grenade launcher then." [21:42] <~SU_Tempest> [Barkeep] Heh. I'd love it, though. [21:42] <Thidran> "Yeah, but your bar won't." [21:42] <~SU_Tempest> [Barkeep] True. [21:43] <&Hebizuka> *Three citizens, looking sleazy and already quite drunk, enter the bar. The bartender nudges at you, telling you that it's them.* [21:44] * Thidran nods to the bartender, and leans against a wall close by. "Ho there! You look like you've had enough. Maybe you need to sleep it off?" He asks the approaching group. [21:45] <~SU_Tempest> [Patron2] Fuck you, Musclehead. *hic* We's gonna drink if we's want to. [21:46] <~SU_Tempest> [Patron1] Hey, duuude. You's gonna serve three brown ales or what? Yknow what we like. [21:46] * Thidran looks towards the Barkeep. "I assume you don't want 'em here, right?" He asks, as he draws his Springfield. [21:46] <&Hebizuka> *The radio switches, almost too appropriately, to "Another One Bites the Dust".* [21:47] <~SU_Tempest> [Patron3] Who's the fucker trying to look tough? We just wanna drink, so don't cum fug it up, or I'll fugg YOU up. [21:48] * Thidran sights on the threatening patron, and looks coldly. "Last warning. Leave. You are not welcome here." [21:48] <~SU_Tempest> [Patron3] BOYS, THEY DUN WANT TO GIVE US GOOD SERVICE. FUGG EM UP! [21:48] <~SU_Tempest> *He draws his pistol, and the other two, knives. The chef draws his 870.* [21:48] <~SU_Tempest> *This is a fight!* [21:49] <~SU_Tempest> *Turn 1. What will you do?* [21:49] * Thidran aims towards the third patron's hand, and fires off four shots, with the intention of disarming him. [21:49] <Thidran> *With the springfield.* [21:51] <&Hebizuka> *The first patron lunges towards you, with the intent to slash you twice with his knife.* [21:51] <&Hebizuka> *The other one tries to do the same against the bartender.* [21:51] <&Hebizuka> *The pistol-wielding patron aims at you, and fires at you without aiming, in your general direction, three times.* [21:51] <&Hebizuka> *Barkeep pulls his shotgun out in the meantime, aims at patron #1 and will try to fire twice.* [21:53] <&Hebizuka> *Order this turn: You, Patron 1, Patron 3, Patron 2, Barkeep.* [21:53] <&Hebizuka> *You may roll first.* [21:53] <Thidran> @roll 4#2d6 [21:53] <MazeBot> Thidran: 5;9;5;11 [21:54] <&Hebizuka> *Shots 1-4: Miss, Hit, Miss, Hit.* [21:57] <&Hebizuka> *You manage to land two hits on his right hand, making Patron #3 drop his handgun before he gets a chance to shoot it! The hollow-points cause pain so unbearable, and damage so devastating, that it disabled his hand!* [21:57] <&Hebizuka> *He drops the pistol, watches his limp hand in horror being adorned with two bleeding holes.. presumably thinking about how his only girlfriend has just been shot before his eyes. This is too much for Patron #3: he passes out.* [21:58] <&Hebizuka> *Patron #1's turn...* [21:58] <&Hebizuka> @bodyaim [21:58] <MazeBot> [LIMB] Right knee [21:58] <&Hebizuka> @roll 2#2d6 [21:58] <MazeBot> Hebizuka: 8;9 [21:58] <&Hebizuka> *He swings like a complete idiot, not hitting your chest but instead managing to slash your knee. Twice.* [22:00] <&Hebizuka> *Thankfully, you're wearing SRA leg pads, which help mitigate a LOT of the damage! They resist like a champ and prevent you from taking TOO much damage. It still hurts a little bit... but the leg pads ensure you (just barely) avoid receiving open wounds.* [22:01] <&Hebizuka> *Patron #3...* [22:01] <&Hebizuka> *His turn is cancelled, as he passed out.* [22:01] <&Hebizuka> *Patron #2...* [22:01] <&Hebizuka> *He lunges at the barkeep!* [22:01] <&Hebizuka> @bodyaim [22:01] <MazeBot> [EXTREMITY] Left foot [22:01] <&Hebizuka> *With walking I would best describe as "catastrophic", he's about to try and stab the foot of Mr. Barkeep. Twice.* [22:01] <&Hebizuka> @roll 2#2d6 [22:01] <MazeBot> Hebizuka: 9;7 [22:02] <&Hebizuka> *He manages to stab on his way down, but miserably fails the second hit attempt. Barkeep still screams in pain.* [22:03] <&Hebizuka> *The barkeep suffers from the stab, receiving pain, damage, and an open wound. But he's still quite alive.* [22:03] <&Hebizuka> *Barkeep's turn...* [22:04] <&Hebizuka> @bodyaim [22:04] <MazeBot> [UPPER BODY] Torso (Chest, back) [22:04] <&Hebizuka> @roll 2#2d6 [22:04] <MazeBot> Hebizuka: 6;6 [22:04] <&Hebizuka> *Just in time to open fire on the knee-slashing patron that has hurt you. He lands a total of 5 pellets on the target's back... the other ones missing due to poor aim, perhaps.* [22:05] <&Hebizuka> *Nevertheless, those five pellets are enough to cripple Patron #1 into submission. Or rather, into dying.* [22:06] <&Hebizuka> Barkeep [Remington 870 MM] Maze Citizen [22:08] <&Hebizuka> *End of Turn 1. Total tally: 1 dead, 1 wounded, and you and the barkeep took a hit but are both still alive.* [22:11] <&Hebizuka> *Several people in the room are bleeding - the bartender, Patron #3 (who isn't waking up anytime soon), and dead Patron #1. You're not bleeding, though, since you have no open wounds.* [22:11] <&Hebizuka> *Turn 2. What is your next move?* [22:15] * Thidran roars out, "Stop trying to fight or you're going to die!" to the only remaining citizen, giving him a chance to surrender. If he doesn't, he'll put four bullets into the bastard's head. [22:15] <~SU_Tempest> *The remaining alive patron feels severely outgunned, throws his knife on the floor and lifts his hands way up. He begs for mercy. Do you accept?* [22:16] <Thidran> *I accept.* [22:16] <~SU_Tempest> [Barkeep] Get the fuck out, and never return! [22:17] <Thidran> "Wait." [22:17] <&Hebizuka> *End of fight! (2 turns)* [22:17] * Thidran holds up a hand to the Barkeep. [22:17] <~SU_Tempest> [Barkeep] [22:17] <~SU_Tempest> [Barkeep] What? [22:18] * Thidran levels his springfield towards the surrendered citizen. "You, wake your friend up first, then...let's see what you've got. Considering the trouble that you've given the barkeep, it's only fair you try to pay some of what you owe." [22:19] <~SU_Tempest> [Patron2] D-dude *hic* I'll just throw you all my money! And my friend's! A-a-and *hic*'ll drag him out of here! And yall's never see us faces ag-*hic*-ain! [22:20] * Thidran nods. "Works for me." [22:20] <~SU_Tempest> *He drops his purse at your feet, rummages in passed-out pistol patron's vest, then throws you his purse, then he slowly drags his dead friend out, leaving a trail of his blood.* [22:21] <~SU_Tempest> *Patrons #2 and #3 left the room. All of their weapons are on the floor, and #1's dead body is still there.* [22:22] <~SU_Tempest> [Barkeep] Thanks a lot, sir. You're a fantastic bodyguard. I'm just gonna have to find a bandage for my foot but... It's okay, you couldn't prevent that. [22:24] * Thidran pulls out a bandage from his backpack. "I happen to have one, if it would help." [22:25] <~SU_Tempest> [Barkeep] Oh please, I would appreciate it! Let me have it so I can do something for my foot, please? [22:26] * Thidran gives the Barkeep one of his two bandages. "Gladly." [22:26] <&Hebizuka> *He quickly fixes up his foot.* [22:26] <~SU_Tempest> [Barkeep] Much appreciated! Your job here is done. If you wanna loot from those fucks, I won't mind. [22:26] * Thidran takes a look at the resulting loot while the Barkeep fixes himself up. [22:26] <Thidran> "Sure thing." [22:26] <&Hebizuka> *You see two knives, a handgun, and Patron #1's vest may have things inside.* [22:27] * Thidran checks out the knives to start. [22:27] <&Hebizuka> [Weapon] Class 5 Short: KA-BAR knife - Sharp/Piercing - Butchering. Weight: 3 [22:27] <&Hebizuka> [Weapon] Class 5 Short: Kizlyar DV-2 knife - Sharp/Piercing - Butchering. Weight: 3 [22:28] * Thidran compares the two, wondering which one has the best heft for himself. He eventually opts to equip the KA-BAR, and leave the other. [22:28] * Thidran then checks out the handgun. [22:29] <&Hebizuka> [Weapon] Class 3 - Colt M1911A1 pistol | .45 ACP - Semi-auto | No accessory | M1911A1 7-round mag, +1 | Weight: 3 - [6+1/7, 7x FMJ] - Cond: Good / Clns: Grimy [22:30] * Thidran leaves the pistol for the moment, before checking the vest itself out... [22:32] <&Hebizuka> [LBE] (Tactical vest) MK64 Trooper: Capacity 8 units + Ammo (6 mags only, max tier: Large) [22:33] * Thidran perks up, before carefully pulling the vest off of the passed out patron. "Yeeeeeah, I'm going to get a whole lot more use out of this than you." He puts it on, and makes sure it fits right. [22:34] <&Hebizuka> *With the many adjustable straps, you make sure it fits you just snugly.* [22:34] <&Hebizuka> *You find the following inside it:* [22:34] <&Hebizuka> [Money] 154 P$ [22:34] <&Hebizuka> *Do you wish to take this?* [22:34] * Thidran takes the money, and adds it to his pot. [22:34] <&Hebizuka> *Do you wish to take the purses on the floor and the money inside?* [22:35] * Thidran takes the purses on the floor with money inside. [22:35] <&Hebizuka> [Money] 206 P$ [22:35] <&Hebizuka> [Money] 29 P$ [22:35] <&Hebizuka> *You've acquired a total of 389 P$.* [22:35] <&Hebizuka> *Total money carried: 684 P$* [22:35] <~SU_Tempest> [Barkeep] Thanks a lot again, bud. [22:37] * Thidran bows to the barkeep. "No problem, just give me a moment to put the rest in this new vest. Might wanna call medical on the other fool." He spares the remaining pistol and knife into the vest, before teleporting out. [22:37] <&Hebizuka> *Not enough space to carry them both in your bag.* [22:38] <&Hebizuka> *Spared in vest.* [22:38] <&Hebizuka> [Vest/Main] 6/8 [22:41] <&Hebizuka> *You've been telepadded back to the hiring bureau.* [22:41] <~SU_Tempest> [Hirer] Welcome back! Did it go well? [22:41] * Thidran nods. "About as well as it could be. Didn't even have to kill them all." [22:42] <~SU_Tempest> [Hirer] Well, so long as your employer is satisfied. As promised, the 450 P$. Cash or credit?. [22:42] <Thidran> " [22:42] <Thidran> "Cash please."

He then takes his spare magazines, and puts them in with the vest's mag pouch. [22:44] <&Hebizuka> *Move 2x SKS clips, 1x XDM mag and 1x P2000 mag to Vest/Mags?* [22:45] <Thidran> *Yes.* [22:46] <&Hebizuka> [Vest/Mags] 4/6 mags [22:46] <&Hebizuka> [Pack/Main] 35.87/40 [22:46] <&Hebizuka> Checkout [22:47] <&Hebizuka> 28 rooms (+13), 1 kill, 0 SEs, 2 missions (+1), 0 Amulets, 1134 P$ (+934), 0 Runs [22:47] <&Hebizuka> Score: 61pts (+32) [22:48] <&Hebizuka> Position: 10th ex-aequo [22:48] <&Hebizuka> Thidran rises to 10th position ex-aequo with Reisen Udongein Inaba, both at 61 points.
