Log:V4 Session 111 (Meta, no ontology)

From Mazeworld

[29-Jul-18 09:03 PM] Tempest#5018 [Session #111 ; Session start] _Welcome back to the Mazes, Reina Miyako-Knight. You're in the distant military town of Station Delta, in the Northwestern Zone, and you're currently with Rie "Fireball" Kirari, your hired mercenary, inside of the town's hospital, specifically at the meds shop._

[29-Jul-18 09:04 PM] Twib#7809 "Rie, sobered up now?" Reina asks as she examines her new battery-less Lifesaving Vest.

[29-Jul-18 09:06 PM] Tempest#5018

    • [Fireball]** Yeah, I'm better. I figured that if we're going on a long trip full of fun, you want me at my best, right?
    • [Fireball]** Besides, I promised my handlers.

[29-Jul-18 09:07 PM] Twib#7809 "Yeah. I enjoy a drink here and there, but never drugs. Allllthoooough~" And here, Reina gestures to the sweet, sweet tactical cocaine she just bought. "I figure I can blow a few grams on you when everything's said and done. You're gonna have to get clean on your own though." To Rozoan!

[29-Jul-18 09:07 PM] Tempest#5018

    • [Fireball]** Oooo. Blow. My favorite!!
    • [Fireball]** Tell me we'll have some soon!

[29-Jul-18 09:10 PM] Twib#7809 "In a bit, in a bit, Rie~ But I'll tell you what. Every time we stop by a place that has meds, we'll do a little window shopping." "At the end of the week, I'll give it all to you as a bonus. Every single gram. But only if I'm satisfied with your performance." "Just, uh - don't be expecting much action today. I always hear Rozoan is a ghost town."

[29-Jul-18 09:15 PM] Tempest#5018

    • [Fireball]** Yeah, that's also what I heard. But you know what else I heard? Nobody who ventured too deep into the town ever came back alive.
    • [Fireball]** Isn't that exciting?! Maybe there's a giant people-eating monster, or maybe there's an army of big killer bugs! Or maybe I'm just trippin' again.

[29-Jul-18 09:17 PM] Twib#7809 "Well, I guess that's what I'm hiring you for. A kasha like you can handle anything near-dead or otherwise, right?" Let's get to Skip Travelling!

[29-Jul-18 09:22 PM] Tempest#5018 _You travel for 15 rooms, all the way back to the gap corridor. Then, you have two trips to look forward to: Station Delta to Intersection 01, then finally, Intersection 01 to Roazon._ _We'll have to make a stop at Intersection 01 - is that OK?_

[29-Jul-18 09:23 PM] Twib#7809 No problem.

[29-Jul-18 09:27 PM] Tempest#5018 _The trip to Intersection 01 is blistering quick - only 8 rooms and 40 minutes of traveling._ _At the end of which, you reach Intersection 01 from the South. You find yourself on South Street 3._ _The time is now 1:36 AM._

[29-Jul-18 09:28 PM] Twib#7809 "Might as well pop in and see what shops are open, eh? Come on, Rie." To the Social Square! Do Intersections even have Social Squares.

[29-Jul-18 09:29 PM] Tempest#5018 No, just a central room, but that's the same thing really. This is where the map can be found (though you can ask to see the map at any point of the intersection, for convenience!)

[29-Jul-18 09:30 PM] Twib#7809 Oh, okay. Map, please!

[29-Jul-18 09:32 PM] Tempest#5018 < I-01 - Map >

Exits: North (to Roazon) // East (to Fort Phantom) // South (to Station Delta) Open 24/7: Rest stop, Takeout stand, Public toilets, Public showers Currently open: Restaurant (Diner), Engineering workshop

[29-Jul-18 09:34 PM] Twib#7809 "Oooh, let's stop by te Engineering Workshop. I need to pick up a mtching battery for our matching vests."

[29-Jul-18 09:35 PM] Tempest#5018 _You travel 7 rooms, going to East Street 3, then making a turn to enter the local engie workshop. A middle-aged female engineer is behind the counter, looking bored out of her mind with a cigarette between her lips._

[29-Jul-18 09:35 PM] Twib#7809 "Got any HIBTs, my good woman?" "Or are they HITBs. The big industrial batteries, those." "...Aaaaand I sup.pose I'll take a look at the rest of your wares while I'm here."

[29-Jul-18 09:36 PM] Tempest#5018

    • [Engineer]** HITB, yeah. I'll go check if I've got some. Whatchu looking to use em for?

[29-Jul-18 09:37 PM] Twib#7809 "Sick defibrilator vests. But with a gorgeous gal like you around, I don't really need it to get my heart pumping."

[29-Jul-18 09:37 PM] Tempest#5018

    • [Engineer]** Don't even bother, girl. I'm married.

[29-Jul-18 09:38 PM] Twib#7809 "I don't mind groups~"

[29-Jul-18 09:38 PM] Tempest#5018 _She casts you a nasty glare, then disappears into the storage room to check her inventory._

[29-Jul-18 09:40 PM] Twib#7809 "Psssssh. Rie, ever had a threesome before?"

[29-Jul-18 09:44 PM] Tempest#5018

    • [Fireball]** Only once, and then I woke up in a youkai town with none of my clothes, 7 gold coins on my tits, and surrounded by 12 empty vodka bottles. There was a naked body in the corner of the room, too.
    • [Fireball]** To this day I still have no idea if that guy was dead or not. I just had to bolt outta here. Thankfully it was 4 AM and the clothing store didn't ask me too many questions when I showed them the coins! I said "Just give me fucking something to wear, right now". So they did!

[29-Jul-18 09:46 PM] Twib#7809 "You didn't remember it either, that's the worst feeling in the world. What's the point of fucking if you can't reminisce after?" "Maybe you and I should find a handsome guy after all of this."

[29-Jul-18 09:46 PM] Tempest#5018

    • [Fireball]** Don't do PCP before a threesome, that's all I can say.
    • [Fireball]** ... And vodka, and tequila, and ... shit, maybe I did have too much.

[29-Jul-18 10:02 PM] Twib#7809 No problem. First things first, let's make some chloride bombs!

[29-Jul-18 10:03 PM] Tempest#5018 Do you have the blueprint for this?

[29-Jul-18 10:03 PM] Twib#7809 Nope. I wish.

[29-Jul-18 10:04 PM] Tempest#5018 Alright

[29-Jul-18 10:04 PM] Twib#7809 But I do have vinegar, chloride tablets, and an M18 smoke grenade.

[29-Jul-18 10:04 PM] Tempest#5018 You have the requisite ingredients at least, so you just won't get the boost from the blueprint. This is a Level 1 recipe, you have no blueprint and your skill level in Crafting is Unskilled... Therefore you have a 75% chance per crafting toolkit use to successfully craft one.

[29-Jul-18 10:05 PM] Twib#7809 So it shouldn't be toooo hard.

[29-Jul-18 10:06 PM] Tempest#5018 _You spent a turn to drop the backpack, and you reach inside to pull together the ingredients and your crafting toolkit._ _You'll spend 1 turn per attempted crafting. Toss me a 1d100 to make one attempt._ _At 75% chances to succeed, you succeed by rolling a 75 or less._

[29-Jul-18 10:07 PM] Twib#7809 /r 1d100

[29-Jul-18 10:07 PM] Sidekick#6198 @Twib#7809: `1d100` = (22) = 22

[29-Jul-18 10:08 PM] Twib#7809 There we go.

[29-Jul-18 10:09 PM] Tempest#5018 Success! You spent 1 turn, burned 1 use from your crafting toolkit, and consumed 1 chlorine tablet, 1 bottle of vinegar, and 1 M18 smoke grenade.

You obtained **+1 Skill Point in Crafting**, and the following item:

[Weapon] Class 4 - R7/Unique - Chlorine bomb - Chlorine gas hand grenade, improvised. Weight: 3/item

[29-Jul-18 10:09 PM] Twib#7809 Okay, and now to make some one-time use handcuffs for Rie to hold onto.

[29-Jul-18 10:10 PM] Tempest#5018 You want to make cord restraints; all you need is 1 coil of 550 cord to make one pair of restraints. No blueprint for this one either?

[29-Jul-18 10:10 PM] Twib#7809 Nope.

[29-Jul-18 10:10 PM] Tempest#5018 OK. This is also a Level 1 recipe, so you also have 75% chances to succeed per attempt. Go ahead and toss me a 1d100 when ready

[29-Jul-18 10:11 PM] Twib#7809 /r 1d100

[29-Jul-18 10:11 PM] Sidekick#6198 @Twib#7809: `1d100` = (49) = 49

[29-Jul-18 10:12 PM] Tempest#5018 Success! You spent 1 turn, burned 1 use from your toolkit, and consumed 1 coil of 550 cord.

You obtained **+1 SP in Crafting** and the following item: [Key item] A 550 cord restraint. May be used to attempt restraining certain creatures. Disposable; destroyed when removed. - Weight: 1

[29-Jul-18 10:13 PM] Twib#7809 Reina smiles as she tosses the restraints over to Rie's bored hands. "Here you are, gorgeous. Just in case my handcuffs aren't enough." "Do be a dear and hold on to my goodies I bought, will ya? I promise we'll have fun with them soon."

[29-Jul-18 10:14 PM] Tempest#5018

    • [Fireball]** Shweet.

_Do you want Fireball to carry everything?_

[29-Jul-18 10:15 PM] Twib#7809 Except the Chloride bomb! I'll keep that on my best.. Vest, rather.

[29-Jul-18 10:16 PM] Tempest#5018 _The M18 smoke grenade that was Vest/Main is now a Chlorine Bomb_ _No change to weight levels there._ _All of the other items were passed over to Rie - she equips the 550 restraint to her key items and dumps everything else in her backpack._ _2 turns have passed._ _One moment please_

[29-Jul-18 10:18 PM] Twib#7809 "Alright, now back to our road trip! To Rozoan!" (Oh, okay.)

[29-Jul-18 10:20 PM] Tempest#5018 _Ally's backpack: 4.12 /20_

    • [Fireball]** Whoo, pack muling! Okay, let's go now!

_After finishing your purchases at the local workshop, you move 7 rooms to North Street 3. There, you notice something unique happening..._

[29-Jul-18 10:23 PM] Twib#7809 Oh god. That's never good.

[29-Jul-18 10:24 PM] Tempest#5018 _A pair of engineers are undoing some construction blocking the door to the UA path._

    • [Engineer #1]** Where are we supposed to carry all of this shit?
    • [Engineer #2]** I dunno, administration said to reopen the road and to not ask questions. Maybe we can just dunk all of that stuff at the workshop.
    • [Engineer #1]** Good, cuz I didn't wanna hoof it all the way to Fort Phantom with this shit in my hands!

[29-Jul-18 10:26 PM] Twib#7809 "Heeeey there, boys!"

[29-Jul-18 10:26 PM] MEE6#4876 Level up! @Twib#7809 is now **level 45**.

[29-Jul-18 10:26 PM] Tempest#5018 _The engineers turn._

    • [Engie #2]** Hey, what's up.

[29-Jul-18 10:26 PM] Twib#7809 "If you have things you need to dump, I'll take a few things off your hands~" Reina only barely resists striking a pose, but only just. And she can't resist sashaying, the hem of her evening dress swaying with her hips, as she walks towards the overloaded group. "I'm all about relieving men of heavy loads."

[29-Jul-18 10:29 PM] Tempest#5018

    • [Engie #2]** Nah, we're good, thanks. You're traveling through there, aren't you?

[29-Jul-18 10:30 PM] Twib#7809 "Mhmm. Heard there were a few fun things happening in the area, so I thought I'd take a bat at things. Got any advice for two sex beasts like us?"

[29-Jul-18 10:30 PM] Tempest#5018

    • [Engie #2]** Uhh... Just don't expect anything fun on that route.
    • [Engie #1]** Shit man, did I miss a rumor?
    • [Engie #2]** I dunno. People said all kinds of shit about this route and Roazon.

[29-Jul-18 10:32 PM] Twib#7809 "Well - alright then. See you three in a bit." Let's just get going if they're not gonna play along.

[29-Jul-18 10:32 PM] Tempest#5018

    • [Fireball]** What, you're leaving me behind?

_There are only two engineers, so Rie might have taken "you three" the wrong way._

[29-Jul-18 10:36 PM] Twib#7809 "Oh, nope. I'm just drunk off my ass, I thought there were three of those strapping engineer men." "That coffee's hitting me really hard."

[29-Jul-18 10:36 PM] Tempest#5018

    • [Fireball]** You're drunk? Oh, caffeine crash huh? Yeah, I know what that's like.

_She drops the half-shocked expression and resumes her perpetual smile._

[29-Jul-18 10:38 PM] Twib#7809 Riiiight. Okay, NOW to Rozoan.

[29-Jul-18 10:38 PM] Tempest#5018 Skip travel? Or wanna go through the classic route?

[29-Jul-18 10:38 PM] Twib#7809 Skip please!

[29-Jul-18 10:38 PM] Tempest#5018 Okay then. _After having had one of the shortest routes possible, you're now having one of the longest. A 30 room trip, which is mostly uneventful as you and Rie focused on getting there without dillydallying. 2 hours and a half of traveling..._

[29-Jul-18 10:41 PM] Twib#7809 "Why the hell *is* this town abandoned, if this was also the first Intersection area built?"

[29-Jul-18 10:41 PM] Tempest#5018

    • [Fireball]** Oh, 01 doesn't mean it's the first one, it was just named that way because it's the northernmost. 02 is all the way in the northwest, because it's a little further south than this one, on the map.
    • [Fireball]** I don't have any idea where the first intersection even is. Probably somewhere near Khazrun.

[29-Jul-18 10:43 PM] Twib#7809 "So if they ever expanded further north, they'd need to rename all of the Intersections?"

[29-Jul-18 10:43 PM] Tempest#5018

    • [Fireball]** Maybe! I dunno. It's engineer stuff, they're the ones who know how this works.

_The two of you finally arrive in Roazon. The first thing you notice in this gap corridor is how still and silent it is. There isn't even a "welcome to Roazon" town sign above the door to the town gate. There WAS one, but it's been destroyed._ _The only ways are north - into the town, or south - back to the UA. You have an eerie feeling._ _You notice several graffiti painted in red paint, which has darkened to an almost blood like color with age and time._ _They are all over the walls, and were painted hastily._

[29-Jul-18 10:47 PM] Twib#7809 "Well." Reina steps closer to the graffiti. Any warning signs of doom, or is it generic rumors and grafitti?


    • [Fireball]** Well, shit, that's charming.

[29-Jul-18 10:49 PM] Twib#7809 "Allllrighty then. Are all your guns loaded? Are all *my* guns loaded?" Quick capacity check! I do believe all my shotguns should be loaded, but, well - never hurts to double check.

[29-Jul-18 10:52 PM] Tempest#5018 Auto-5 RA: [8+1 /8 | 9x 12 gauge, Standard Plated Buckshot] Kel-Tec KSG-25 [(12, **6**, +1) /24 | 19x 12 gauge, Standard Slug - Tube R active] Kel-Tec KSG-12 [(7, **7**, +1) /14 | 15x 12 gauge, Standard Rubber Buckshot - Tube R active] Joshua pistol [0 +0 | No ammo, no magazine]

[29-Jul-18 10:52 PM] Twib#7809 "Alright then, let's head in. Maybe we can find a radio and get some spooky music ambiance."

[29-Jul-18 10:54 PM] Tempest#5018 _You move one room north, into the town gate. It's heavily dilapidated. Many of the same kinds of graffiti you saw earlier have been painted on the north and east walls._ _**kkkrrrk... kkrrrrr...**_ _As soon as you enter the town gate room, you hear a deep, heavy creaking sound._

[29-Jul-18 10:55 PM] Twib#7809 "So, here's the thing, right?"

[29-Jul-18 10:55 PM] Tempest#5018

    • [Fireball]** Looks about as dusty as those attics in a horror movie.

[29-Jul-18 10:55 PM] Twib#7809 "Who in the fuck would have the time to actually write all of this grafitti if things were going straight to hell?" Where's the sound coming from? We're gonna be good horror movie leads and explore it immediately.

[29-Jul-18 10:56 PM] Tempest#5018 _You're not sure where the sound comes from. It seems to be coming from all around you._ _The exits are as follows: North to the Access corridor, West to the Toilets, South to the Gap corridor (previous location)_

[29-Jul-18 10:58 PM] Twib#7809 Well, let's head to the toilets, I guess. "What's the over/under on us finding any good loot here?"

[29-Jul-18 10:59 PM] Tempest#5018

    • [Fireball]** Who knows? Maybe we'll find good stuff!

[29-Jul-18 11:00 PM] Tempest#5018 _The toilets are unremarkable. Dilapidated - there seems to be decades, maybe hundreds of years of decay and lack of maintenance. All of the urinals are cracked or destroyed. The mirror is shattered. The cabin doors are all broken open._ _Even some of the walls look cracked and flimsy._

[29-Jul-18 11:00 PM] Twib#7809 "Well, let's keep going then. Back to the Access Corridor."

[29-Jul-18 11:01 PM] Tempest#5018 Back to the Town Gate, you mean?

[29-Jul-18 11:02 PM] Twib#7809 "Town Gate then Access Corridor."

[29-Jul-18 11:02 PM] Tempest#5018 Are you certain you wish to proceed into the access corridor?

[29-Jul-18 11:03 PM] Twib#7809 Yuuuuuup. Worse comes to worst I'll kill Rie and eat her.

[29-Jul-18 11:03 PM] Tempest#5018 Wow.

[29-Jul-18 11:03 PM] Twib#7809 But I have a few hunger-prevention drugs so it should be alright for a little while.

[29-Jul-18 11:05 PM] Tempest#5018 _You move one room east, back to the Town Gate, and then one north, to the Access corridor...

As soon as you step out of the Town Gate and enter this corridor room, a muffled crashing sound is heard from behind you, followed by crackling... then..._

    • krrkrrKRRRAAAKKKKK**

_A terrifying crash seemingly causing an earthquake - the loud, thunderous noise of tons and tons of rubbles crashing down on the floor._ _The entire ceiling in the town gate just caved in. **You are trapped inside of Roazon.**_

    • Sidequest S3-2: Questionable Ethics**

Objective 1: Find a way out of Roazon

[29-Jul-18 11:06 PM] Twib#7809 "Yeah this was to be expected."

[29-Jul-18 11:06 PM] Tempest#5018 _For the first time, you see Fireball display an exaggerated emotion._ _She looks **terrified.**_

    • [Fireball]** What the FUCK was that?

[29-Jul-18 11:07 PM] Twib#7809 "That was a trap. Someone doesn't want us leaving.."

[29-Jul-18 11:07 PM] Tempest#5018 _Suddenly... Something else also catches you by surprise!_

[29-Jul-18 11:07 PM] Twib#7809 "Jokes on them though, we'll just repopulate the town together.">

[29-Jul-18 11:07 PM] Tempest#5018 _All of the lights go out!_ _It looks like all remaining power - what few there was - just ran out completely._

[29-Jul-18 11:08 PM] Twib#7809 "...Soooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo, does the energy blast you kasha girls do glow?" "Because it's either that or my lighter."

[29-Jul-18 11:09 PM] Tempest#5018 _Before the power ran out, you were able to determine that the exits around you are as follows:_ North: To Social Square - South Street 5 West: To UA water recycling unit East: To Generator facility South: To Town Gate (Caved-in, no access)

    • [Fireball]** N-no sorry, it doesn't produce THAT much light...

[29-Jul-18 11:10 PM] Twib#7809 "Let's see what we can do about getting the lights back on. Worse comes to worse, I have, like, 8 butane gas canisters. We might be able to jury rig something.". "And - Rie, if you're scared of the dark, you can wait here with my lighter, and I'll just go on ahead."

[29-Jul-18 11:11 PM] Tempest#5018

    • [Fireball]** No, nonono, it's not the dark I'm afraid of... It's.. Just, tell me, there's another way out, right? Please tell me. I hate hate hate hate being stuck in one place too long.

_She looks expectantly at you - well, as much as you can see, given the very low light levels._ _Rie seems to wait for an answer._

[29-Jul-18 11:13 PM] Twib#7809 "There is. Remember the Engineer Tunnels we took?" "There's going to be another one around here somewhere, don't worry."

[29-Jul-18 11:14 PM] Tempest#5018

    • [Fireball]** Okay... I hope. I hope so. Thank you, Reina.

[29-Jul-18 11:14 PM] Twib#7809 "We just have to find it. The Gods won't lead us wrong."

[29-Jul-18 11:14 PM] Tempest#5018 _She'll remember that. She seems reassured and pacified for now._ Objective 2: Reactivate power in the town

[29-Jul-18 11:14 PM] Twib#7809 Reina'll give the poor girl a hug, to boot. Nothing sexual, just comforting.

[29-Jul-18 11:15 PM] Tempest#5018 _Fireball hugs you back, and places her trust in you._

[29-Jul-18 11:15 PM] Twib#7809 "I'll get you outta here." Now, to the East.

[29-Jul-18 11:17 PM] Tempest#5018 [Generator facility - Control room] _The power monitoring computer is still on, and it is the only source of light in the room, aside from some low-power, emergency red lights on the walls. Some sort of error message seems to be flashing._

_From now on, we will be exploring the town room by room, so make sure to ask for the exits unless you know where you want to go exactly._

[29-Jul-18 11:18 PM] Twib#7809 Okay. Would turning on my lighter be any help for the lighting at all?

[29-Jul-18 11:19 PM] Tempest#5018 _It would alleviate environmental blindness a little bit, but as far as I'm concerned, it doesn't change a thing for exploration. Since you're not under the duress of combat, your eyes will eventually adjust to the darkness and you can navigate, if a little slower than usual._ _In other words, don't worry too much about it, but feel free to keep the roleplaying up._

[29-Jul-18 11:20 PM] Twib#7809 Well, I hope there's a flashlight somewhere.

[29-Jul-18 11:20 PM] Tempest#5018

    • [Fireball]** I wish I had bought a gun with a rail on it, I could've bought a light for that...

[29-Jul-18 11:21 PM] Twib#7809 Reina will keep the lighter on, more for Rie's comfort than anything else. In the meantime, she'll lead the way, always making sure to hold the poor Kasha's hand, as she investigates the computer. What's the error say?

[29-Jul-18 11:21 PM] Tempest#5018 "FATAL ERROR - EMERGENCY MODE ACTIVATED" "Please reboot system" _Reboot the power control computer?_

[29-Jul-18 11:22 PM] Twib#7809 Let me take a look at the Exits first. "Juuust in case, I want to actually check out the generator before we fiddle with the computer."

[29-Jul-18 11:23 PM] Tempest#5018 North: Corridor (accessible - the door is not locked) (prev)South: Town Gate / Access corridor

    • [Fireball]** I can keep an eye on the computer while you look around, if you want!

[29-Jul-18 11:23 PM] Twib#7809 "Alright, North it is - and, smart move, Rie. Call me if you have any problems, okay? Our phones should still work." I'll move on ahead, then.

[29-Jul-18 11:24 PM] Tempest#5018

    • [Fireball]** If there's anything, I'll just call you out, you should be able to hear me! It's not like there's any noise around here anyway...

[29-Jul-18 11:26 PM] Twib#7809 "You're... hopefully right. Rie, scream, uh - "I hate cocaine", if you're okay and need me, and "Reina, are you sure there's an exit" if you're being held up at gunpoint and told to call me."

[29-Jul-18 11:26 PM] Tempest#5018

    • [Fireball]** ... That sounds smart. I will!

_Rie proceeds to reboot the power control computer. There's only one turn needed to wait until it's done. You can stay with her or you can move ahead into the rest of the facility._

[29-Jul-18 11:27 PM] Twib#7809 Oh - I, uh, I didn't want her to reboot it just yet. Too late?

[29-Jul-18 11:28 PM] Tempest#5018 _You stop her before she clicks on "OK"._

    • [Fireball]** Oh, oh you wanted me to wait for you? Okay.

[29-Jul-18 11:28 PM] Twib#7809 "Yeah - yeah." "Because, like - it went into an emergency mode for a reason, right?" "I wanna make sure that we don't just immediately turn it on without actually fixing the problem first."

[29-Jul-18 11:28 PM] Tempest#5018

    • [Fireball]** Right, right, make sure it's safe and all.

[29-Jul-18 11:28 PM] Twib#7809 "Last thing we need is to accidentally blow up the generator." Okay, situation clear - let's go to the North.

[29-Jul-18 11:31 PM] Tempest#5018 [Generator facility - Corridor] _A dark corridor._

North: Hebizuka Generator room East: Storage room (prev) South: Control room

[29-Jul-18 11:31 PM] Twib#7809 Okay, first things first, Storage Room. Come ooooon, nothing that'll instantly kill me.

[29-Jul-18 11:34 PM] Tempest#5018 [Generator facility - Storage Room] _A long-abandoned, dilapidated storage room. You can discern a table, two broken chairs, and a number of containers that used to contain loot, but are now empty... except for one, which is closed and which seems to have been pushed to a corner, like some sort of stash. **There are items** inside of this stash._

[29-Jul-18 11:35 PM] Twib#7809 Oh for the love of god be flashlights/ Or food... Or a convient journal entry of some poor fuck's final days.

[29-Jul-18 11:37 PM] Tempest#5018 _None of those things... For now._ < Stash >

_A pistol, three extra magazines. All loaded. And there's an old crowbar too. Hmm._

[29-Jul-18 11:38 PM] Twib#7809 ...Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm....... Well, I don't have nearly enough space in my bag, so I'll just leave it all here for now. If I need a pistol or a crowbar, I'll come back.... - It does have a rail, so there's my potential flashlight. I will go West into the corridor and then North into the Generator room.

[29-Jul-18 11:43 PM] Tempest#5018 [Generator facility - Hebizuka Generator room] _The great big power generator, with the lightning-snake logo (a snake with a lightning bolt for a tail). It looks old and in need of some repairs, but it doesn't look broken. The generator control computer is functional, but currently turned off. You can turn it on, if you want. Connected to the generator through huge cables running north, east, and west, are the "Giant Batteries", the Power Storage Units, which serve as capacitors storing excess energy for the town's use._

East: Power Storage Unit 1 North: Power Storage Unit 2 West: Power Storage Unit 3 (prev) South: Corridor

[29-Jul-18 11:44 PM] Twib#7809 Let's check Power Storage Unit 1.

[29-Jul-18 11:46 PM] Tempest#5018 [Generator facility - PSU 1] _The first of the three "giant batteries". The PSU1 control computer is functional, but off. Nothing appears to be out of the ordinary here, besides the lack of power._

[29-Jul-18 11:46 PM] Twib#7809 Alright. West to the Generator Room, then North to Storage 2.

[29-Jul-18 11:46 PM] Tempest#5018 [Generator facility - PSU 2] _Much of the same as in the first one. The PSU2 control computer is functional, but off._

[29-Jul-18 11:47 PM] Twib#7809 And Storage Unit 3, South and West.

[29-Jul-18 11:48 PM] Tempest#5018 [Generator facility - PSU 3] _The room here is in a heavy state of disrepair. The ceiling is partially caved in, with gigantic chunks of concrete having fallen onto the "Giant Battery" and causing damage to the large cylindrical structure. However, it appears that the PSU3 control computer hasn't been damaged; it is functional, but also turned off._

[29-Jul-18 11:48 PM] Twib#7809 Well, there's our problem. Can I turn on the control computer here?

[29-Jul-18 11:49 PM] Tempest#5018 _Unit Control Computer 3 - Booting sequence in progress. Welcome to Station 4.0!_ _Please activate main system in generator room._

[29-Jul-18 11:50 PM] Twib#7809 Yeah, okay, figures. I'll turn it off and then go East, to the Generator Room, and turn on that one there. I am making very sure to turn OFF Unit Control Computer 3 before I leave.

[29-Jul-18 11:51 PM] Tempest#5018 _UCC3 has been turned off successfully._

[29-Jul-18 11:51 PM] Twib#7809 Last thing I want is to explode the crushed battery. Perfect.

[29-Jul-18 11:51 PM] Tempest#5018 [Generator facility - Hebizuka Generator room] _Generator Control Computer (GCC) - Booting sequence in progress..._ _Welcome to Station 4.0!_ _Fatal error detected on control room system - please reboot control rool system._

[29-Jul-18 11:53 PM] Twib#7809 Okay, as expected. Let's turn this one off and go back to Rie. So that's South to the corridor and South to the Control Room.

[29-Jul-18 11:54 PM] Tempest#5018 _GCC turned off successfully._

[29-Jul-18 11:55 PM] Twib#7809 "Rie, can you hear me from here!?" Reina shouts as she walks through the rooms.

[29-Jul-18 11:55 PM] Tempest#5018 [Generator facility - Control room]

    • [Fireball]** YEAH? WHAT'S UP?

[29-Jul-18 11:55 PM] Twib#7809 "Nothing, I just wanted to check the acoustics of this place."

[29-Jul-18 11:55 PM] Tempest#5018 _Your voice resonates against the walls._ _Rie's voice appears distant and muffled, until you rejoin her in the control room._

[29-Jul-18 11:56 PM] Twib#7809 "Okay, Rie - got some good news and better news. I found a gun with a Rail on it, so we just need to scrounge up a weapon light and we're in business." "All of the generator computers are working, and so are two of the three batteries for it."

[29-Jul-18 11:57 PM] Tempest#5018

    • [Fireball]** Really? Wow, do you think maybe we can turn this stuff all back on? Having some light would make this less stressful.

[29-Jul-18 11:57 PM] Twib#7809 "I want to check as much as possible before we turn on the generator, though - all of this feels too planned for there to *not* be someone pulling the strings. Do you mind staying here while I go check out the watering plant?" "I have a few cigs that can help settle your nerves if you want them, but I do want to check the other plant first."

[29-Jul-18 11:58 PM] Tempest#5018

    • [Fireball]** Don't be gone too long, okay? And sure, gimmie a cig and light it up for me, I'll have a smoke while you're rooting around.

[29-Jul-18 11:59 PM] Twib#7809 "Don't suddenly get addicted like with the booze." One turn to put the bag down, one turn to offer her a fresh cig.....

[30-Jul-18 12:00 AM] Tempest#5018 _And one turn to light it up for her._

[30-Jul-18 12:00 AM] Twib#7809 And then one turn to light the thing and put in Rie's pretty, kissable mouth.

[30-Jul-18 12:00 AM] Tempest#5018 _Fireball takes a whiff. The little red dot adds to the reddish ambiance in the room._

[30-Jul-18 12:00 AM] Twib#7809 South to Town Gate, and then West to UA water recycling unit, once Rie's nice and settled..

[30-Jul-18 12:00 AM] Tempest#5018 /r 1d6+2

[30-Jul-18 12:00 AM] Sidekick#6198 @Tempest#5018: `1d6+2` = (6)+2 = 8

[30-Jul-18 12:01 AM] Tempest#5018

    • [Fireball]** Oh man, thank you.

[30-Jul-18 12:01 AM] Twib#7809 "Kiss for good luck~?"

[30-Jul-18 12:02 AM] Tempest#5018 _Please wait one moment._

[30-Jul-18 12:02 AM] Twib#7809 Oh god did I set off the smoke alarms

[30-Jul-18 12:05 AM] Tempest#5018 _There are no smoke alarms. (I was just setting up effects.)_ _Fireball pecks you on the cheek - after briefly taking the cig off of her lips, of course. Soon it's returned there, and the mercenary enjoys the sweet embrace of nicotine - at least for a short while._

[30-Jul-18 12:06 AM] Twib#7809 "Alright, to the watering plant."

[30-Jul-18 12:09 AM] Tempest#5018 _You move one south to the access corridor, and one west from there to the water recycling area._ [UA water recycling unit - East corridor] _Nothing much here._

West: Control room 3 East: Town entrance / Access corridor

[30-Jul-18 12:10 AM] Twib#7809 West to Control Room 3. Maybe I can drug the water with Lorazepam and sell it. Well, at least that's an idea for Cloud Ten. Just buy as much Lorazepam as possible and dump all of it into the water.

[30-Jul-18 12:17 AM] Tempest#5018 [Water recycling - Control room 3] _This room monitors the city water reserves, the so called Big Tank, as well as the outbound pump, which directs water to the town. The CR3 control computer is off and appears non-functional._ _Perhaps restoring power in the generator facility may be necessary._

[30-Jul-18 12:18 AM] Twib#7809 It probably is. But here's another possible exit out of Rozoan. We can just go through the water tank and pop out in the UA somewhere. ...Hopefully.

[30-Jul-18 12:19 AM] Tempest#5018 _This outbound pump and the pipe that connected to it goes _ into _the city._ _However, there **is** an inbound pump and pipe, which takes water from UA reserves._ _The control room for that is Control Room 1, two rooms west._

[30-Jul-18 12:20 AM] Twib#7809 Alright, let's go West to Control Room 2, then.

[30-Jul-18 12:21 AM] Tempest#5018 [Water recycling - Control room 2] _This room monitors the filtration and sanitization of inbound water, and it is where water from possibly unclean or contaminated sources (such as water from the UA, in this case) is cleaned for consumption and use in towns. All water that goes in a town is therefore safe to drink._ _The CR2 control computer is off and appears non-functional - there is no power._

[30-Jul-18 12:23 AM] Twib#7809 Alright, and West to Control Room 1.

[30-Jul-18 12:28 AM] Tempest#5018 [Water recycling - Control room 1] _This room monitors the inbound pump, which directs water from outside sources. Because this is a UA water recycling plant, this is where a multitude of tubes and pipes come to connect to one big pipe - all of the inbound water, to be moved to the filtration and sanitization area._ _The CR1 control computer is off, and is non-functional; there is no power._

[30-Jul-18 12:29 AM] Twib#7809 Alright, so here's my question - are the pipes big enough for me and Rie to crawl through?

[30-Jul-18 12:30 AM] Tempest#5018 _You cannot access them. You only know they're there from markings and information in the room telling you about its purpose._ _Well, you can't get to them normally._ _Were there a freak accident allowing you to get into them, yes, they're certainly big enough to support an adult person standing up._ _Maybe, just maybe, this is your ticket out, but how are you going to get there? You should be on the lookout for other ways out as well. If the town is in this bad of a state of disrepair, maybe there's other accesses._

[30-Jul-18 12:32 AM] Twib#7809 Okay, so hopefully I can fiddle with the water pressure in Control Rooms 2 and 3 to burst the walls and pipes open. So, that's plan 1. Let's go East 3 times into the Access Corridor, and then North to Social Street 5. "Rie, almost done searching around!" Reina shout, while she's in the corridor.

[30-Jul-18 12:34 AM] Tempest#5018 _You should probably focus on getting power back on before you venture in the Social Square._ _It's dark out there._

    • [Fireball]** HURRY UP, MAN! I'M TIRED OF WAITING!

[30-Jul-18 12:35 AM] Twib#7809 "HOLD YOUR WHORES, I'LL BE DONE IN JUST A SECOND!" Reina's willing to loiter for just a few minutes - enough to give Rie the impression she's actually searching around - before finally going back to the generator. East 4 times into the Generator Control Room. "Alright, Rie. Can you boot up the computer, and then loot the storage room that's North and East of the room we're in? Once the computer's booted up, I'll be able to turn on the generator, I think."

[30-Jul-18 12:39 AM] Tempest#5018 _After an unsuccessful trip in the recycling facility, you're back in the generator facility..._ [Generator facility - Control room]

    • [Fireball]** Damn, finally, here you are. Did you find anything at all this time?

_She has finished smoking that cigarette._

[30-Jul-18 12:40 AM] Twib#7809 "I found a way to make an exit, if we can't find the Engineering Tunnels deeper inside. See? I promise everything'll be okay." "You boot up the computer, then meet me up in the corridor after you loot the Storage room, okay? You should find a gun, ammo, and a crowbar."

[30-Jul-18 12:41 AM] Tempest#5018

    • [Fireball]** What kinda gun?

[30-Jul-18 12:41 AM] Twib#7809 "Pistol with a Rail. So there might be a weapon light we can find too."

[30-Jul-18 12:42 AM] Tempest#5018

    • [Fireball]** Oh, okay, I'll check it out. But uhh... Can I stick with you? Like, for real? I don't like it here. This town smells of death.
    • [Fireball]** Trust me when I say that, I'd rather have someone alive next to me right now.

[30-Jul-18 12:43 AM] Twib#7809 "Oh, alright. I was gonna have us split up, but if you want to feel my body, how can I say no~?" "Let's just boot the computer up, then."

[30-Jul-18 12:44 AM] Tempest#5018 _Reboot sequence will take one turn and about 6 minutes of waiting. Confirm?_

[30-Jul-18 12:44 AM] Twib#7809 Confirm.

[30-Jul-18 12:44 AM] Tempest#5018 (( I'll take a supershort break while I take care of things. (( Be back soon! (( And we're live again.

[30-Jul-18 12:57 AM] Twib#7809 "If this place hasn't been active for hundreds of years, why is all the tech level the same? "

[30-Jul-18 12:58 AM] Tempest#5018

    • [Fireball]** Beats me.
    • [Fireball]** Maybe we can't do better?

_4:12 AM. The power control computer has finally rebooted._ _Welcome to Station 4.0! Welcome to the Roazon power control computer, USER._

[30-Jul-18 01:04 AM] Twib#7809 "So I was right, we are running out of fuel." "Alright, Rie, let's get this started." North to the Corridor, and then Rie will grab the goodies from the storage room, while I deal with the generator.

[30-Jul-18 01:04 AM] Tempest#5018

_She probably didn't hear you._ _With the hum of the generator now back online, it's a lot harder to talk over!_

[30-Jul-18 01:42 AM] Tempest#5018

    • [Fireball]** _<Muffled>_ Oooooo! I am a ghooooost!

_You can join her in the storage room, or wait for her to come out._


[30-Jul-18 01:45 AM] Tempest#5018 [Storage room] _Fireball has just finished equipping the crowbar, and is making faces and grimaces to evoke a ghost._

    • [Fireball]** OOooo- oohh nooo you figured me out, I'm not actually dead. _<Cue laughing.>_

[30-Jul-18 01:46 AM] Twib#7809 "Ooooh nooooo, I guess I'll have to settle with regular lesbian sex~" "I'm glad you're feeling better, Rie. Let's keep going."

[30-Jul-18 01:46 AM] Tempest#5018 _Fireball is holding the crowbar, swishing it around as if to get the weight of it, then slings it on her back. She's now following you again._

    • [Fireball]** Where are we going next, boss?

[30-Jul-18 01:47 AM] Twib#7809 /r 1d2 1 for Water 2 for Research

[30-Jul-18 01:47 AM] Sidekick#6198 @Twib#7809: Densaugeo!

[30-Jul-18 01:47 AM] Twib#7809 /r 1d2

[30-Jul-18 01:47 AM] Sidekick#6198 @Twib#7809: `1d2` = (1) = 1

[30-Jul-18 01:48 AM] Twib#7809 "We're gonna go to the Research Station. The generator said there was something funkey with the energy being used there."

[30-Jul-18 01:48 AM] Tempest#5018

    • [Fireball]** Okay, lead the way! I'm right behind you.

[30-Jul-18 01:48 AM] Twib#7809 "I wanna save the water plant for last, just in case turning it on uses up all the rest of the power." To the Social Square! So South, West, North.

[30-Jul-18 01:49 AM] Tempest#5018 _You go one west first - to leave the storage room and go to the corridor. Then, south (control room), south (exiting the generator facility and going back to the Access corridor), and finally, north (entering the social square.)_ _4 rooms later..._ [Social Square - South Street 5] _The Social Square is badly damaged. Large cracks and lacerations, alongside bullet holes and chips are displayed on every single wall. It looks like that some areas of the social square have caved in, as well. Perhaps taking a look at the map in the social square center would help you get a better idea of what happened here._ _The SS Center is 5 rooms north of here._

North: South Street 4 West: Public showers (prev) South: Access Corridor (Town Entrance)

[30-Jul-18 01:54 AM] Twib#7809 Reina takes a glance at the map, for what little it's worth. "It doesn't *feel* like this was a regular faction war or whatever. But at the same time, *someone* has to have cleaned up the bodies..."

[30-Jul-18 01:55 AM] Tempest#5018 _The map is in the SS Center._ _No conveniences this time. This is Roazon!_ _It dawns on you that among the rubble and the dust on the floor, there are cracked, pulverized bones here and there, and more or less complete remains of skeletons._ _Many of these skeletons specifically have broken skulls._

    • [Fireball]** Uh... I don't think any cleaning up happened here in a long time.

[30-Jul-18 01:57 AM] Twib#7809 "Oh, so *there* are the bodies." "It's amazing what you miss when all the lights are off." West, then. Let's check out the showers!

[30-Jul-18 01:59 AM] Tempest#5018 [Social Square - Public showers] _There hasn't been a drop of water in this room in ages, so it smells dry, rocky, and oppressive. There is absolutely nothing of use here. Just more rubble, damage, and a pile of skeletons in the corner. It reminds you of Fort Silver, but with a lot less loot and a lot more exploded heads._ _You hear Fireball repress a yawn._

[30-Jul-18 02:00 AM] Twib#7809 "Well, if we do get stuck here for a while, we can turn on the water and shower together." Alright, to SS 4 please. East and North.

[30-Jul-18 02:01 AM] Tempest#5018

    • [Fireball]** _<yaaawn...>_ ...That'd be nice, yeah.

[Social Square - South Street 4] _Nothing much here, except more damage._

East: Public toilets. North: S St 3 (prev) South: S St 5

[30-Jul-18 02:03 AM] Twib#7809 East to the Public Toilets. "Are you feeling sleepy? I can take watch for you if you need some shut-eye." "And if we can't find a bed to cuddle up in, I have some sleeping drugs for us."

[30-Jul-18 02:09 AM] Tempest#5018

    • [Fireball]** Oh, naw, L-pam is terrible, you can't get high on that... I'd rather have a drink or something right now... Like a coffee or an energy drink, that'd be great.
    • [Fireball]** ...But we won't find much of that in town, are we?

[Social Square - South public toilets] _Dry as hell. Everything in this room is broken and unusable. Water hasn't been restored, so the sinks and the urinals do not function either._

[30-Jul-18 02:11 AM] Twib#7809 "Probably not..." West and North to S St 3. "I have a few drinks in my bag, but we might have to ration it."

[30-Jul-18 02:17 AM] Tempest#5018

    • [Fireball]** Man I hope they left supplies behind...
    • [Fireball]** ... I wonder if 300 year old food is good.

[South Street 3] _Nothing here. Only way is north or south._

[30-Jul-18 02:19 AM] Twib#7809 North to South Street 2. "I have a portable cooker, so if there is anything, we can at least heat it up." "So when we leave, we lie and say we fought off a horde of mishappen beasts from another plane, right?"

[30-Jul-18 02:20 AM] Tempest#5018 [South St 2] _To the east of here is the door to what used to be the hiring bureau... But it has caved in. Opening the door just leads to a big fat wall of rubble._ [South St 2] _To the east of here is the door to what used to be the hiring bureau... But it has caved in. Opening the door just leads to a big fat wall of rubble._

[30-Jul-18 02:23 AM] Twib#7809 South Street 1. "Once we find this research facility, we can take a break. I have some food and drinks for ya." "I can go without the Tanuki gimmick if you need the food, okay?"

[30-Jul-18 02:27 AM] Tempest#5018

    • [Fireball]** Naw, I'm good... Hey, you have another cig for me? I could use another.

[South St 1] _Much of the same. To the west is a door to what was the bank, but, again, caved in. There's even a half skull - the FRONT half of a skull, that is wedged under a heavy chunk of concrete._

[30-Jul-18 02:29 AM] Twib#7809 "Only a couple, but yeah. Kiss me on the lips for it~?" Reina will pull it out once they're in SS1. North from here is the Social Square, right?

[30-Jul-18 02:33 AM] Tempest#5018 _Rie smooches you on the lips quickly, then begs for her cigarette exaggeratedly._ _And yes, one room north of here, is the social square center._

[30-Jul-18 02:35 AM] Twib#7809 Reina takes the turn to drop her bag and another to light the cig, delicately tracing Rie's lips with the filter end of the 'smoke before letting her take a puff. To the Social Square!

[30-Jul-18 02:38 AM] Tempest#5018 _1 turn to drop the bag. Rie takes the cigarette. You spent another turn to light it for her so she can get another smoke._ _She seems to calm down from that. You realize now that she seems tired and... tense?_ /r 1d6+2

[30-Jul-18 02:39 AM] Sidekick#6198 @Tempest#5018: `1d6+2` = (2)+2 = 4

[30-Jul-18 02:40 AM] Tempest#5018

    • [Fireball]** Man, I'm gonna need my own cigs at this rate...
    • [Fireball]** Sorry for taxing you this much. It's probably just this town.

_6 cigarettes remaining in the backpack._

[30-Jul-18 02:41 AM] Twib#7809 "So do you prefer guys or girls?" Reina asks as she pulls out one of her precious, precious cups of coffee. She tosses it to Rie, just to take the edge off. "Because if you need to blpw off some stress, I am always glad to help."

[30-Jul-18 02:45 AM] Tempest#5018 _You spent 1 turn to pass a cup of coffee to Rie, who receives it happily. She spends a turn subsequently to drink it._

    • [Fireball]** Hey, thanks. So if I like guys or girls? _<Youkai language>_ (Why not both?)

_She snickers at you._

[30-Jul-18 02:49 AM] Twib#7809 "Hentaaaai~ Let's celebrate with a hotel room when we get out of here, okay? There's a nice hotel in Raven City that has a bed missing your perky ass." We'll keep going once she's finished off her coffee. Rie can smoke on the go.

[30-Jul-18 02:50 AM] Tempest#5018 _She finished the coffee._ _She gulped that shit down in one turn._

[30-Jul-18 02:51 AM] Twib#7809 There's a bunch of stuff she's gonna gulp down in one turn once I'm done with her. "Alright, let's keep this pace up."

[30-Jul-18 02:57 AM] Tempest#5018 _To the SS Center?_

[30-Jul-18 02:57 AM] Twib#7809 To the SS Center!

[30-Jul-18 02:59 AM] Tempest#5018 _Fireball extinguishes her now smoked cigarette into the empty coffee cup, and throws both of them out while moving forwards._

[30-Jul-18 03:01 AM] Tempest#5018 [Social Square Center] _There are black painted scribblings all over the town map itself and the walls of this room. There are also circles and arrows on the map itself ,pointing specific locations for "stashes", to be used "just in case"._ _It appears that the doors leading up to the Residential Areas and to the Hospital lead to more cave-ins. So no looting in those areas. The only functional exits of the Social Square are south and east (to the shop hub, and the special facility)._

[30-Jul-18 03:04 AM] Twib#7809 Any stashes on our way to the facility? And was the Pistol/Crowbar stash listed on there?

[30-Jul-18 03:05 AM] Tempest#5018 _The generator room stash wasn't listed, actually._ _The stashes that are on the map, are pointing to the locations of the local bar, and the local restaurant. Both of which have a "2" next to the circle; what does the "2" mean?_ _They're not on the way to the facility; the bar is off of East Street 1 (which means 2 rooms away from you), and the restaurant is facing North Street 1 (also 2 rooms away)._

[30-Jul-18 03:07 AM] Twib#7809 "Two guns, two keys, two people..."

[30-Jul-18 03:07 AM] Tempest#5018

    • [Fireball]** Nah, I know what that means.
    • [Fireball]** There's two stashes in each. That's what it means.

[30-Jul-18 03:07 AM] Twib#7809 "Let's stop there, I suppose. Let's go to the bar first. That'll probably have some drinks for us, righ - oh, you do?" "Well, alright. So four bags of goodies for us, then."

[30-Jul-18 03:08 AM] Tempest#5018

    • [Fireball]** I've seen this sort of language in the UA before. Makes sense, don't it?

[30-Jul-18 03:08 AM] Twib#7809 "To the bar, first. maybe they'll have a hammock in the back. And - it does. Just surprised they'd be willing to mark it so obviously, you know?"

[30-Jul-18 03:08 AM] Tempest#5018

    • [Fireball]** Situation must've been really dire...
    • [Fireball]** Normally you don't mark the number on a map. You just spray paint it somewhere out of the way, so that people who know what to look for will know, but leave the rest none the wiser.

_To the bar?_

[30-Jul-18 03:10 AM] Twib#7809 To the bar.

[30-Jul-18 03:13 AM] Tempest#5018 _You travel two rooms..._ [Roazon unnamed bar - Hall] _Eight tables, 24 chairs - nearly all of them trampled or destroyed. There's a pile of bones in the corner that goes all the way to waist height. It's almost comical._ _You see a pile of tables which forms a sort of little wooden fort. One of them is spray-painted with a symbol that looks like the letter Σ (Sigma). Presumably to signal the location of a stash._

(prev) West: North St 1 East: Bar counter room

[30-Jul-18 03:14 AM] Twib#7809 "Alright, let's hope this stash isn't bombed. Rie, help me pull apart these tables?"

[30-Jul-18 03:15 AM] Tempest#5018 _You and your hired mercenary are pulling apart the table fort, breaking what can't be budged. It doesn't take very long to uncover the stash underneath._

[30-Jul-18 03:17 AM] Twib#7809 "Oh thank god, food. Rie, can you put it in your bag?" Afterwards, we'll check out the Bar counter room, too.

[30-Jul-18 03:18 AM] Tempest#5018 _Rie spent a turn to bag the items._

    • [Fireball]** Bad news, boss, my bag's almost full already.

_Ally's BP/Main: 19.12/20_

[30-Jul-18 03:19 AM] Twib#7809 "No worries, we can just eat it if it comes to that." "And I can dump a few things if I have to." To the Bar Counter Room?

[30-Jul-18 03:23 AM] Tempest#5018 [Unnamed bar - Counter] _You notice several clusters of bullet holes and impacts on the wall, which are very distinctive. You recognize them easily - they're what a shotgun loaded with buckshot would do to a wall. There was a firefight here. You step - and crack - on the ribcage of some poor, ancient skeleton - and notice that its skull is missing._ _The effects of black coffee have ended._ _You see another **Σ** painted, this time on the counter itself, which seems to indicate there is a stash behind._ (prev) West: Hall. _All of the other exits are blocked off. No way to access the scullery, the storage room, or the toilets._

[30-Jul-18 03:24 AM] Twib#7809 "Come oooon, secret CAWS." What's in the stash?

[30-Jul-18 03:27 AM] Tempest#5018 _Rie also grabs the vodka, and stashes those in her vest._ Ally's Vest/Main: 2 /2 _Total time spent: 2 turns_

    • [Fireball]** Awright, NOW I'm feeling better.

[30-Jul-18 03:28 AM] Twib#7809 "looking forward to cracking those open once we escape." "Come on Rie, let's see what the other stash has."

[30-Jul-18 03:29 AM] Tempest#5018

    • [Fireball]** Huh? Oh, yeah, yeah.

_Straight to the restaurant?_

[30-Jul-18 03:30 AM] Twib#7809 Yup yup. "You know, chefs are the most likely people to do tons of cocaine." "Maybe it'll be a drug stash this time."

[30-Jul-18 03:33 AM] Tempest#5018 _5 rooms later..._ [Roazon unnamed restaurant - Dining room] _No sight of any pretty maid or handsome waiter. Just more broken tables and chairs and more skeletons and bones. You notice another painted **Σ** - this time, under a table, and protected by a pile of chairs._

    • [Fireball]** That is decidedly NOT what I expected.

[30-Jul-18 03:35 AM] Twib#7809 "Well, more food is more food. Let's check out the stash in the kitchen."

[30-Jul-18 03:36 AM] Tempest#5018

    • [Fireball]** I can't carry anymore, by the way. We'll have to come back to this stuff later.

[30-Jul-18 03:36 AM] Twib#7809 "Oh, I'm aware. I'm just scoping out what's available." "Tanuki are big eaters, so worse comes to worst, I will literally just eat all of this before we leave." To the kitchen stash!

[30-Jul-18 03:38 AM] Tempest#5018 _You move one room north, into the kitchen. There you see four skeletons, all lined up against the wall,all with their skulls exploded. Some still have the lower parts attached, some with the lower jaw missing._ _You also see a stash. Unimaginatively, the sigma's painted on the fridge door._ _The fridge is busted and doesn't produce cold anymore, but the stash is inside._

[30-Jul-18 03:39 AM] Twib#7809 "Sooooo, question is - did they kill themselves, or did someone line them up?" What's in the fridge?

[30-Jul-18 03:39 AM] Tempest#5018

    • [Fireball]** They look like they were executed... But why are their heads MISSING? Were they executed with a fucking shotgun or something?

[30-Jul-18 03:40 AM] Twib#7809 "Maybe they were turning into zombies."

[30-Jul-18 03:40 AM] Tempest#5018

    • [Fireball]** Nah I'm good for now.

[30-Jul-18 03:41 AM] Twib#7809 Okay, back to the Social Square, and then finally to the Research Station!

[30-Jul-18 03:41 AM] Tempest#5018

    • [Fireball]** I just hope we get this over with soon.

_You'll first have to check the shop hub out._

[30-Jul-18 03:41 AM] Twib#7809 "Mmmm. Probably just an hour or three." Alright, then. To the shop hub!

[30-Jul-18 03:45 AM] Tempest#5018 [Shop hub - Shop St 1] _You leave the unnamed restaurant and travel 9 rooms to the shop hub. You see it's one of the small ones, with three shop emplacements. A small map indicates that there used to be two shops of some kind. There is a sigma on the map for both of these shops._ _You also see more graffiti._

"THE FACILITY IS CURSED", _painted with an arrow pointing at the exit east of Shop St 3, where the local special facility, the Menezdu Research Facility, was._ "FUCK THOSE SCIENTISTS" "LEAVE THIS CURSED TOWN" "**THEY** STILL LURK INSIDE"

[30-Jul-18 03:46 AM] Twib#7809 "So it definitely sounds like zombies." "Let's check the stashes in the shops, I suppose. And let me know if you need a smoke break."

[30-Jul-18 03:46 AM] Tempest#5018

    • [Fireball]** Can zombies survive for hundreds of years?...

[30-Jul-18 03:47 AM] Twib#7809 "Depends on what kind. If they're magic or preserved with formaldehyde, yeah probably."

[30-Jul-18 03:47 AM] Tempest#5018

    • [Fireball]** Forma- oh the yucky sticky embalming stuff?

[30-Jul-18 03:47 AM] Twib#7809 "If they're not *actually* undead, and instead some type of virus animating a still-living organism, then they're totally dead too." "Yeah. It's really good for keeping a corpse presentable. I used to douse bodies in the stuff before funerals, back when I was a priestess." "But first things first - the shop stashes."

[30-Jul-18 03:48 AM] Tempest#5018

    • [Fireball]** Man, you must've had an interesting life! I hope not as screwed up as mine.

[30-Jul-18 03:49 AM] Twib#7809 "The Demon Lord Asmodeus may or may not be my mom."

[30-Jul-18 03:49 AM] Tempest#5018

    • [Fireball]** HAH! That wouldn't surprise me one bit!

[30-Jul-18 03:49 AM] Twib#7809 "I have like, four moms, if you squint. It's complicated." "The way *you* act, I wouldn't be surprised if Asmodeus sired you either."

[30-Jul-18 03:49 AM] Tempest#5018 _Which shop first? 1 or 2?_

[30-Jul-18 03:49 AM] Twib#7809 1 Please .

[30-Jul-18 03:50 AM] Tempest#5018 [Shop 1 - Shop floor] _Judging by the ruins and what remains of the decoration, this used to be a weapon shop. A sigma is painted in the corner, where you can find an old, rusty metal box. Whatever is stashed is inside._

[30-Jul-18 03:51 AM] Twib#7809 Oh god please tell me it'll open on its own. "Rie, heads up, we might need the crowbar if this doesn't open."

[30-Jul-18 03:54 AM] Tempest#5018 _Yeah, it's not a container, it's just an old rusty box and you have no trouble opening it._ _Rie still whacks it open with entirely too much force than is necessary. The lid **breaks**._ _Well at least it's open. Permanently._

[30-Jul-18 03:56 AM] Tempest#5018

    • [Fireball]** Or this is the trash can.
    • [Fireball]** Seriously, maybe it's sucker bait.

_Rie equips the insulated gloves anyway._

[30-Jul-18 03:57 AM] Twib#7809 "It's marked as a stash. Come on, let's do some positive thinking." To Shop 2!

[30-Jul-18 03:58 AM] Tempest#5018 _But wait... There is another sigma in the storage room of this shop! Which is accessible!_

    • [Fireball]** Hey, wait, let's check the storage room out! Maybe there's better stuff inside!

[30-Jul-18 03:59 AM] Twib#7809 "Wait, shit, there's another one?" Reina follows Rie into the storage room. "Thought the map was only marked with 1 stash per shop."

    • [Fireball]** Holy mother of fuck.

[30-Jul-18 04:00 AM] Twib#7809 "Yes, you called for Me, my child?"

[30-Jul-18 04:00 AM] Tempest#5018 _Fireball is staring at what's inside of the storage room with the eyes of amazement. What did she find?_

[30-Jul-18 04:00 AM] Twib#7809 "Is it a flamethrower?" "Or a rocket launcher?" "The four gods themselves incarnated into futanari women ready for divine coming?"

[30-Jul-18 04:10 AM] Tempest#5018 [Shop 1 - Storage room] _You spot a single skeleton in the corner, clutching what appears to be a **really cool submachine gun** in one hand, and a **diary** in the other hand. There's no apparent damage to this skeleton - at least not of the same kind as the skeletons outside. It looks like the man died lying there, alone._

_What has caught Fireball's attention is the **large amount of weapons, mostly explosives**, in this room. There's also, regrettably enough, an empty bulk can of ammunition._

[30-Jul-18 04:11 AM] Twib#7809 "Welllll, I guess we can just fucking *blow* our way out if we have to." Jesus Mercy..

[30-Jul-18 04:12 AM] Tempest#5018 _Ready to check the stash out?_

[30-Jul-18 04:12 AM] Twib#7809 Reina'll take a look at the weapons, but MORE IMPORTANTLY is the diary.

[30-Jul-18 04:12 AM] Tempest#5018 _Diary first?_

[30-Jul-18 04:12 AM] Twib#7809 Yes. And then the diary.

[30-Jul-18 04:14 AM] Twib#7809 What the FUCK.

[30-Jul-18 04:14 AM] Tempest#5018

    • [Fireball]** RIGHT?!

[30-Jul-18 04:15 AM] Twib#7809 "Okay, so, we are absolutely goddamn leaving with this and I will dump the entire pharmacy that is my backpack if I have to." But let's read the diary first.

[30-Jul-18 04:15 AM] Tempest#5018

    • [Fireball]** I REALLY regret not having a bigger bag.

[30-Jul-18 04:16 AM] Twib#7809 "Maybe you should put it as part of your gear when you get hired."

[30-Jul-18 04:16 AM] Tempest#5018 _You read the diary... It's stuck open - in fact, caked open on the last page._

[30-Jul-18 04:16 AM] Twib#7809 "But I guess you don't usually get contracts like mine, huh."

[30-Jul-18 04:16 AM] Tempest#5018 _So that's the only page you can read._ ```“E7-419, Pentema 21 Well, diary, finally managed to do it. With the help of some of the guys that stayed behind, we were able to move rubble, furniture, and all sorts of heavy crap in front of the entrance of that wretched lab. I stayed behind to make sure it would hold, reinforcing it with as much shit as I could, while everyone else made their way out of town and get to safety in the UA.

Heh, it’s the ultimate proof that this town failed: when the UA is safer than the town. ``` ```Truth be told, I’m staying behind because I’m hoping to ward people away from ever trying to get in. I know there are still some people trapped in the lab, but it’s mostly scientists, and honestly… after what they’ve unleashed… Fuck them. Fuck everything they’ve ever done. They deserve to die, they deserve to be buried. I hoarded all of the explosives I could so that no-one would be clever and try to blow the rubble out of the way. Maybe when I die, maybe they’ll be all dead and it’ll be safe.

But as long as I am alive, I won’t let the cursed people pop my brains. I know they can kill people just by staring at them. That makes their brains melt, or something. Whatever it is that they do, I’ve seen the dead bodies. I’m not letting that happen to anyone. Not even looters and marauders deserve to die that way.

This will be my last entry. I’m sorry, diary. ``` ```Post-scriptum: If anyone is reading this, I’m probably already dead, and hopefully the cursed people in the laboratory are also dead. If you’re looking to loot this town, beware; the pile of rubble and debris that we piled up in front of the entrance to the lab will block your way. You can use some of my explosives here to clear the way; you’ll need to set at least six charges to destroy everything. Just in case the cursed people are somehow still alive… please take my weapons as well, and whatever you do, be VERY careful. As I wrote before, they can kill you just by staring at you. But if they can’t see you, if you blow them to pieces before they do… maybe you’ll have a chance.

And do me a favor. If you see any dead scientists… spit on their bodies. They’re responsible for this. - B. Calhoun, former Roazon weapon shop owner and day shift manager.” ```

[30-Jul-18 04:18 AM] Twib#7809 "Okay, so." "They're psychic." "They're psychic and can murder you with line of sight." "God damn it I want the zombies theory back."

[30-Jul-18 04:19 AM] Tempest#5018

    • [Fireball]** ... Oh no. Oh no. I hope it's not what I'm thinking.

[30-Jul-18 04:19 AM] Twib#7809 Can I use my meat cleaver to try and un-cake some of the previous pages?

[30-Jul-18 04:19 AM] Tempest#5018

    • [Fireball]** I read so many conspiracy theories on MazeNet but I'm hoping to the Gods they're not true.

_No, trying to do so would destroy the diary._

[30-Jul-18 04:19 AM] Twib#7809 "Outsider from an alternate World, what's the conspiracy?"

[30-Jul-18 04:20 AM] Tempest#5018

    • [Fireball]** ... _<She looks really nervous.>_ That they were genetically engineered on purpose, by the science team that worked there, in an attempt to control the world, but the experiments failed and it led to... everything you see in this town.
    • [Fireball]** Okay, I might have been high when I read those conspiracy BBSes, but still!!

[30-Jul-18 04:21 AM] Twib#7809 "Okay, so, here's the thing." "I think we have enough firepower and food to take care of things." "But I also understand that you're scared." "We can blow open the way early out early with all this C4, and I can send you on your way, end the contract early." "I have this c4 and the rocket launcher, so after you leave I can clear out the lab on my own." "Orrr I might go through MAIM and hire a merc that can repair the generator."

[30-Jul-18 04:22 AM] Tempest#5018

    • [Fireball]** I'm not! I'm just tired, and, okay, maybe a little scared, maybe a little excited, maybe I really, REALLY need to fuck something and snort some blow to forget about this, I dunno, I'm all sorts of things right now. But I'm not fuckin' walking out on you, man! Do you know how COOL this would be if word got out that it's how I died? Killed in a blaze of glory by 300 year old ancient psychic beasts while fighting alongside the daughter of Asmodeus?!?!
    • [Fireball]** This is better than ANY cocaine trip!!

[30-Jul-18 04:24 AM] Twib#7809 "Well. Want a roll in the hay right now? Probably the comfiest we're gonna get for a while." "One last orgasm for the road if we die."

[30-Jul-18 04:24 AM] Tempest#5018

    • [Fireball]** Nah man, I don't wanna fuck in front of a skeleton. But if we get out of this one alive, take me to that hotel and get the biggest dildo you find. And a lot of drugs. Hoooooly shit I'm gonna need it.

_She's talking a mile a minute, like she's stressed out. Or is this just how she shows her excitement? You can't tell for sure._

[30-Jul-18 04:26 AM] Twib#7809 "Rie? Breathe. Breaaaathe."

[30-Jul-18 04:26 AM] Tempest#5018 _She gets the hint immediately, and starts inhaling and exhaling exaggeratedly._

    • [Fireball]** You're right... ... You're right. Okay... Stay cool, Rie. Stay cool.

[30-Jul-18 04:26 AM] Twib#7809 Reina'll grab the C4, and she'll toss the detonator to Rie. "We'll stop by a Dark Sanctum and buy a Penetrator and a few more toys from the pleasure chambers."

[30-Jul-18 04:27 AM] Tempest#5018 _Rie equips the detonator as part of her key items._ _You grabbed all of the C4 from the room._ Backpack / Main: 131.19 /150

[30-Jul-18 04:30 AM] Twib#7809 "Alright. So, I'm a Tanuki, which means I can run waaaaaay faster than you can when I'm filled up." "So let's go check out the second shop's stash, and let me take point, okay?"

[30-Jul-18 04:30 AM] Tempest#5018

    • [Fireball]** You got it, boss.

[30-Jul-18 04:30 AM] Twib#7809 "I'll enter a room first, and if it's hot I can run away, we get all the way back *here*, and blow them to high hell with all of our guns." "Alright then. Let's get started with the rest of the looting." "To the second shop."

[30-Jul-18 04:36 AM] Tempest#5018 _4 rooms later..._ [Shop 2 - Shop room] _Judging from what remains of the furniture here, this used to be a delicatessen. Like the weapon shop before, there is a stash on the shop room, and the storage room is open - hopefully with more stuff inside. Rie suppressed another yawn on the way._

[30-Jul-18 04:37 AM] Twib#7809 "Okay, so, you're stressed, but are you fatigued?"

[30-Jul-18 04:37 AM] Tempest#5018

    • [Fireball]** A bit? I mean, I'm okay, I swear.

[30-Jul-18 04:38 AM] Twib#7809 "Are you sure? Because, literally, at *any* time, we can either blow our way out of here and rest up at Intersection 1, or I can give us both some L-pam and get some Z's." In the mean time though, let's open up the stash in here.

[30-Jul-18 04:39 AM] Tempest#5018

    • [Fireball]** I just wish we could find a stash of cigarettes.

[30-Jul-18 04:39 AM] Twib#7809 "I have a few more, but we'll have to stretch 'em out."

[30-Jul-18 04:39 AM] Tempest#5018

    • [Fireball]** How many you got?

[30-Jul-18 04:39 AM] Twib#7809 "Let's get you a smoke once we're in front of the lab." "Like, 6."

[30-Jul-18 04:40 AM] Tempest#5018

    • [Fireball]** Fuck, it's a whole pack I feel like smoking...

[30-Jul-18 04:40 AM] Twib#7809 "You get addicted too easily, my dear Kasha." Alrigth, what's in the stash? Cigs? Please dear god let it be a whole pack.

[30-Jul-18 04:42 AM] Tempest#5018 < Stash - Shop 2 / Shop room >

[Food] Canned goods - Peaches, canned, with water, 400g. 96 ntri, 125 wtr - Weight: 1 - [Quantity: 2]

[30-Jul-18 04:42 AM] Twib#7809 "That is *not* the kind of peach I'm interested in right now."

[30-Jul-18 04:42 AM] Tempest#5018

    • [Fireball]** Lame.

[30-Jul-18 04:42 AM] Twib#7809 Also, what's my hunger/thirst right now, as we step into the storage room?

[30-Jul-18 04:44 AM] Tempest#5018 [Shop 2 - Storage room] _Decidedly a lot less interesting than the weapon shop's storage room, though you still do find a **stash** which includes a **weapon**!_ 1221 ntri - OK 1328 wtr - Hydrated _You're just fine._

[30-Jul-18 04:45 AM] Twib#7809 "Okay, so I'll definitely need to eat up a bit to regen TB." "...Lovely." So, what's the weapon?

[30-Jul-18 04:47 AM] Tempest#5018 < Stash - Shop 2 / Storage room >

[Food] Beverage - Bottle of mineral water. 0 ntri, 169 wtr - Weight: 1 [Food] Canned goods - Green peas, canned, 700g. 406 ntri, 72 wtr - Weight: 2

[Weapon] Class 1 - R3/Premium - Franchi SPAS-12 shotgun | 12 gauge - Pump/Semi - 21.5 in. - FS | No accessory | Internal tube, 8 rounds, +1 | Weight: 26

   Ammunition: 5+1 /8, 6x 12 gauge, Standard Plated Buckshot
   Maintenance stats: Condition Fair / Cleanliness Lubricated

[Ammunition] 12 gauge, Standard Plated Buckshot, 32 rounds - Weight: 1.6 (0.05 per round) _It's in the hands of another skeleton._ _It looks like it was used to repel something... or someone... before its owner died with it in their hands._

[30-Jul-18 04:52 AM] Twib#7809 "Alright, here." I'll set the bag down and give and light another cig for Rie, no sexual harrassment necessary. And in the meantime, I am going to stuff myself with these green peas. So that's one turn for the bag, one turn for Rie's cig, then two turns to eat.

[30-Jul-18 04:53 AM] Tempest#5018

    • [Fireball]** Hey, uh, can you do something for me?

[30-Jul-18 04:53 AM] Twib#7809 "Depends. What's up?"

[30-Jul-18 04:53 AM] Tempest#5018

    • [Fireball]** Can you just give me your lighter and cigarettes? I'll give it back to you when we run out of cigs. I'll... I'll try to spread em out, I promise.

[30-Jul-18 04:54 AM] Twib#7809 "Alright.. But if you don't, and I see you crashing, I'm just going to give you the L-Pam and we're blowing this joint, okay?"

[30-Jul-18 04:55 AM] Tempest#5018

    • [Fireball]** Okay, okay.

[30-Jul-18 04:55 AM] Twib#7809 "I need you alive if we're going to have mind-blowing life-reaffirming sex, you know?"

[30-Jul-18 04:55 AM] Tempest#5018

    • [Fireball]** I ain't dead yet, boss!

[30-Jul-18 04:55 AM] Twib#7809 The rest of my cigs and the lighter all go to her, then, as I eat up to get my Nutrition up.

[30-Jul-18 04:57 AM] Tempest#5018 _You spent a turn to drop the backpack, and another turn to pass the lighter over to Rie (who promptly equips it as a key item). She spends 1 turn to grab the cigarettes herself, keeping them in her Belt/main, so they're within easy access. You then open the canned green peas and spend one turn gorging on peas. Pea Eater. A total of 4 turns were spent._

[30-Jul-18 04:59 AM] Twib#7809 I ate both cans, correct?

[30-Jul-18 04:59 AM] Tempest#5018 There was only one.

[30-Jul-18 05:00 AM] Twib#7809 Oh, okay. Great. TO THE LAB. "You know, I hear a great way for girls to quit smokes is to suck dick."

[30-Jul-18 05:00 AM] Tempest#5018 _Rie first spends an extra turn moving an Uzi magazine to Vest/Mags, to make some space._

[30-Jul-18 05:01 AM] Twib#7809 "Oh, that reminds - do you have enough space on you to equip the shotgun, too?" "Might as well, if we can fit the holster on you."

[30-Jul-18 05:01 AM] Tempest#5018

    • [Fireball]** Not really, unless you want me to get rid of my katana or my crowbar.

[30-Jul-18 05:03 AM] Twib#7809 "We'll come back for it, then." "We might just drop the crowbar once we've looted everything."

[30-Jul-18 05:12 AM] Tempest#5018 _Where to next?_

[30-Jul-18 05:12 AM] Twib#7809 Okay, let's go to the lab. We have 6+4 = 10 blocks of c4. This'll be fun.

[30-Jul-18 05:15 AM] Tempest#5018 [Shop Street 3] _You move three rooms to Shop Street 3. You can't access the lab, the door is right behind a huge pile of rubble. After having read the diary and seen the pile of rubble, you now understand that whatever was inside of this lab was worth blocking off. The thought of scientists and experiments being trapped inside fills your thoughts. What happened in there?_ The pile of rubble has 6 "hit points", which can only be taken down using specific explosives; C4 charges and SLAM mines are suitable because they're the most useful as demolition explosives. Any other explosive weapon will be useless.

[30-Jul-18 05:16 AM] Twib#7809 Oh, so not the rocket launcher. Lovely.

[30-Jul-18 05:16 AM] Tempest#5018 To clear the rubble and access the Menezdu Research Facility, you must destroy the pile of rubble - bring its HP down to 0.

[30-Jul-18 05:18 AM] Twib#7809 "Also, Rie - I *can* be faster, but that requires me to gorge myself on food and then meditate for a while. I get the feeling you don't want to wait that long, huh?"

[30-Jul-18 05:18 AM] Tempest#5018

    • [Fireball]** I have a question; _why_ do you want to be faster, exactly?

[30-Jul-18 05:19 AM] Twib#7809 Reina asks this as she begins setting up 3 C4 charges. With any luck, she'll be able to skimp on C4 and save it for blowing their way out. "Because I want to be able to run in and out without getting my mind exploded." "Alongside the rest of my head, you know?"

[30-Jul-18 05:20 AM] Tempest#5018

    • [Fireball]** That suggests they're even still alive.
    • [Fireball]** Which, okay, that might be SUPER COOL and all, but, have you noticed how all we've met so far are bone-dry skeletons?... ...that was a stupid pun, sorry.

[30-Jul-18 05:22 AM] Twib#7809 "If they can kill things with their MINDS, I'm worried there'll be a way for them to survive over 285 years. "But, you're probably right, I guess. Now help me blow this shit up."

[30-Jul-18 05:23 AM] Tempest#5018 _You spent a turn dropping the backpack. How many do you want to plant?_

[30-Jul-18 05:27 AM] Twib#7809 Let's do 6, I suppose." "Might as well follow the diary man."

[30-Jul-18 05:29 AM] Tempest#5018 _In that case, Rie will take three, and you will take three, so that both of you plant a total of 2 per turn, saving time in the process._ _3 turns passed, and you planted six small C4 charges onto the pile of rubble, the same six you took from the shop._

[30-Jul-18 05:30 AM] Twib#7809 "Alright, let's get behind cover and blow this joint."

[30-Jul-18 05:31 AM] Tempest#5018 _The C4 charges are attuned to your detonator, since they were yours. You're free to use it whenever you are ready._

    • [Fireball]** At least I get to see a great big fucking explosion.

[30-Jul-18 05:33 AM] Twib#7809 "I'll explode your world once we get that hotel." BOOOOOOOOOOM

[30-Jul-18 05:33 AM] Tempest#5018 _Click._


_You pulverized all of the rubble blocking the way to the lab, leaving only a small pile of smaller chunks and fine dust, which should be much easier to cross!_

Shop St 3 rubble pile destroyed. _The explosion caused the entire town to tremble and rattle for a while. You were afraid, for a brief moment, that your explosive folly would cause a cave-in, but the trembling eventually settles, and the worries dissipate._ Objective 4 completed.


_Rie **really** liked that, and the sight and sound seem to have given her a good boost to her morale._

[30-Jul-18 05:37 AM] Twib#7809 "Remind me to get you a bigger bag and take you mining." Okay, then. Let's go inside the labs!

[30-Jul-18 05:38 AM] Tempest#5018 _You move one room east into the Menezdu Research Facility. A door helpfully informs you that it is the "Home of the Theoretical Physics Science Team"..._ [Menezdu Research Facility (MRF) - Entrance Lobby - I2]

_"I2" refers to map coordinates. In this facility, each room will have coordinates; letters representing the north-south axis (A is northernmost, I is southernmost), and numbers representing the west-east axis (1 is westernmost, 12 is easternmost)._ _The MRF is a large facility - like all laboratories. Your objective is to explore and find your way through it, in order to find another exit out of the town, or at least some sort of way of getting yourself out of here._ _You see a computer in this room, which was turned on when the power came back on._

[30-Jul-18 05:42 AM] Twib#7809 Okay, let's check out the computer firstm Any helpful details would be heavenly.

[30-Jul-18 05:43 AM] Tempest#5018 _You were able to access this computer without having to enter a name or a password; however it's clear you're inside the session of whoever used to work there. You can find three saved emails, part of a conversation. Do you want to read them?_

    • [Fireball]** Yeah. Pentema is Month 5. Wow, you think he quit right before whatever shit happened? Lucky guy.

[30-Jul-18 05:55 AM] Twib#7809 "Having good morals *does* get you ahead."

    • [Fireball]** Right man _out_ of the wrong place, I guess!

```#3 Email / D12/M05/Y419 / from: MRF facility chief <lobbycomp@mrf.com> / to: G. Freeman <lab3comp2-2@mrf.com> ``` ```Gordon, come on! You can’t leave now! You’ve been with us since, what, 20, 25 years now? Project Psyker will be the crowning achievement of our ST! We’ll repeat what we’ve done with Project Mana, but even bigger, even better! We’re changing the world, my friend, and you want to leave now? You can’t be serious. You ARE needed! Your knowledge and expertise is very precious to us, especially now that we’re dabbling in another field of magic resonance research. How are we going to make it to the deadline in Pentema without you?

Please don’t do this to us. Your ID card will be in the central storage room.

I’m expecting you to report for work tomorrow morning.```

[30-Jul-18 05:58 AM] Twib#7809 "Well, that's three emails for the central storage room." "Let's check out the toilets really quickly, in I1 to the West, and then head to the Eastern corridor in I3 after."

[30-Jul-18 06:01 AM] Tempest#5018 _As long as water isn't restored, the sinks, toilets and showers will be non-functional._ [MRF - Toilets - I1] _There is nothing of use in this room. The sinks and the toilets do not work, because water was not restored._ _You move 2 east..._

[MRF - Corridor - I3]

(prev) West: Entrance lobby East: Break room

[30-Jul-18 06:05 AM] Twib#7809 Alright, to the East from here, for the Break Room.

[30-Jul-18 06:07 AM] Tempest#5018 [MRF - Break room - I4] _You see a widescreen TV, a radio, two tables, several chairs, a bookshelf, a closet, as well as a couch and a television table. The powered furniture is functional, although the room is dusty and in disrepair. It doesn't look like it has been the theater of much violence - whatever happened, people just didn't loiter around much here._ _There's **only one book** that wasn't taken off the bookshelf. And there's **something** in the closet._

[30-Jul-18 06:07 AM] Twib#7809 What's the book, and what's in the closet? "Well, worse comes to worst, we can watch some TV and catch our breath. Remind ourselves that the rest of the Mazes still exist."

[30-Jul-18 06:08 AM] Tempest#5018 < Break room loot > [Book] A book. Title: [Mystery] The Zombie Bride - Takes 1d8*5 turns to read. Stress -0.1% * amount of turns spent reading. - Weight: 1 _<Papers, files, clipboards, but nothing useful.>_

    • [Fireball]** ... This is some sick sense of humor.
    • [Fireball]** Man, I hope there's a bed somewhere. Or drinks. Or ... I dunno, I'd stab myself with a syringe of fucking epi if I saw one.
    • [Fireball]** I feel really tired, damn.

[30-Jul-18 06:10 AM] Twib#7809 "There's a couch. Go take a nap and I'll keep looking around." "Otherwise... there's probably a bed *somewhere* in the labs. A hammock or a cot for all-nighters." "Stay here and some rest - I'll come back as soon as I see something cool." 2 West and 1 North to Corridor H2.
