Log:V4 Session 115 (Meta, no ontology)

From Mazeworld

[09-Aug-18 08:08 PM] Tempest#5018 [Session #115 ; Session start] _Welcome back to the Mazes, Pinkie. On the last session, you were in the town of Elkins, and you had just finished solving the problem of invading critters. You're currently at the local hospital, inside of the medic's office. You're currently suffering from a number of minor health problems._

_Sidequest S1-2: Bruce asked you if you could ask the locals around about town defense, and why no-one is helping him out with it._ _Your current issues: Hungry, Tired, Moderate stress, and damage to the Hips (18 /33 hp - just enough above half to not be Damaged yet)_ _More details can be requested from the Medic if you want to get checked up._

[09-Aug-18 08:37 PM] That One Lass#8377 Nothing that can't be dealt with! I'm gonna go get checked up by mister medic man, because I don't want to hurt anymore. Ow! "So, doc! I'd like to get my injuries all taken care of, because ***ow.***" And then after that, I'm gonna omnom after my hips are all OK.

[09-Aug-18 08:41 PM] Tempest#5018 < Elkins hospital - Check-up > Nutrition: 961 ntri - Hungry Hydration: 468 wtr - OK Not poisoned (0% Venom, no Cyanide) Not wounded Blood: 20.0 /20 No broken limbs Damaged limbs: 1 > Hips: 18 /33 Not in pain (0%) Not inebriated (0%) No addictions --- Fatigue: 63.8% - Tired (seek rest soon) Stress: 17.9% - Moderate (distractions recommended) Cost to heal all: 1671 P$

Or, pick and choose: > Nutrition: 1139 P$ to refill to 2100 ntri > Hydration: 232 P$ to refill to 700 wtr > Limb damage: 300 P$ to heal all 15 missing hit points

Hospital bedroom usage also available for 400 P$ for the treatment of Fatigue and Stress. _You have 1590 P$ to spend - not enough for everything, though buying nutrition and hydration healants might be wasteful._

[09-Aug-18 08:46 PM] That One Lass#8377 Don't I get the hospital bedroom for free?

[09-Aug-18 08:47 PM] Tempest#5018 _Oh, that's correct. Bruce arranged for you to get one for free._ _The medic scribbles down the part about the bedroom costing 400._ _Somehow._

[09-Aug-18 08:48 PM] That One Lass#8377 Mm... I'll spend 300 to heal up all 15 missing hitpoints.

[09-Aug-18 08:49 PM] Tempest#5018 _The medic invites you to sit into the healing capsule, and from there, he'll pilot it to have you healed... 300 brass coins later, you're down 300 P$, and up 15 Hips HP._

Money pouch: 1290 P$ (1090 brass 40 copper), 11.7 /20 Hips HP: 33 /33

    • [Medic]** Here you go. Did you want to make use of that free bedroom use right now?

[09-Aug-18 08:50 PM] That One Lass#8377 "Yes, please! I'd love to make use of that bedroom. I'm ***exhausted***." "Well, not really." "...but I'm still tired." I girn. (Grin, rather.)

[09-Aug-18 08:53 PM] Tempest#5018 _The medic smiles right back, and hands you the key to Room 104._

    • [Medic]** Take the door north from here, go 2 west, one south, and you'll be facing the door to 104.

_In short, it's 5 rooms away._

[09-Aug-18 08:58 PM] That One Lass#8377 "Thank you!" I take the key to Room 104, and if there's nothing else I'm gonna head on over to room 104!

[09-Aug-18 09:00 PM] Tempest#5018 [Elkins - Hospital - Room 104] _Not very pretty, smells of cleaning products, but it has a warm bed, a radio, a television, two bookshelves with 8 books each, and rooms to the west include a shower and toilets._ _Perfect place to rest up and regain some energy._ _What happens next is up to you - can spend a turn to drop the bag, eat whatever you have, heal the fatigue right now with sleep, or use the various distractions (books, TV, radio...) for stress relief._

[09-Aug-18 09:15 PM] That One Lass#8377 I'm gonna nom on some beef meatballs and my two apples for a total of 525 nutrition, and 44 hydration.

[09-Aug-18 09:19 PM] Tempest#5018 _Spent 4 turns; 1 to drop the backpack, 3 to eat. Thank you for the stats, by the way!_

Nutrition: 1441 ntri - OK Hydration: 485 wtr - OK

_No lunger hungry by a long shot; that should solve that problem for a while._

[09-Aug-18 09:23 PM] That One Lass#8377 Next, I'm gonna drink a mineral water, 169 hydration.

[09-Aug-18 09:24 PM] Tempest#5018 That leaves you with one, and brings you up to 651 wtr. You also get this: [Item] Empty plastic bottle. It might have contained a drink at some point, but now it's empty. Can be refilled. - Weight: 1 Let me know if you want to take it.

[09-Aug-18 09:25 PM] That One Lass#8377 I'll take it. Weight check? I think I'm at 36.6 now.

[09-Aug-18 09:26 PM] Tempest#5018 Yep that's right. 36.6 /40

[09-Aug-18 09:29 PM] That One Lass#8377 Alrighty. Well, let's get some sleep then, shall I? I'm tired.

[09-Aug-18 09:30 PM] Tempest#5018 Alright. You have the option to short rest (essentially napping), or long rest. Short gets you between 30 mins and 3 hours of sleep, long gets you 2 to 12 hours. 6 minutes of sleep = 0.4% Fatigue healed, and while asleep, you don't burn nutrition or hydration, or, in fact, natural fatigue, at all. (1 hour of sleep = 4% Fatigue healed)

[09-Aug-18 09:31 PM] That One Lass#8377 Eesh. Well, I'm gonna go ahead and long rest. Or try to, at least.

[09-Aug-18 09:32 PM] Tempest#5018 In that case, roll me a 1d6.

[09-Aug-18 09:32 PM] That One Lass#8377 /r 1d6

[09-Aug-18 09:32 PM] Sidekick#6198 @That One Lass#8377: `1d6` = (2) = 2

[09-Aug-18 09:32 PM] That One Lass#8377 Damn it.

[09-Aug-18 09:32 PM] Tempest#5018 4 hours, 16% Fatigue. You can keep sleeping and toss once more, or wake up in 4 hours.

[09-Aug-18 09:34 PM] That One Lass#8377 Sleep some more! /r 1d6

[09-Aug-18 09:34 PM] Sidekick#6198 @That One Lass#8377: `1d6` = (2) = 2

[09-Aug-18 09:35 PM] Tempest#5018 That brings it up to 8 hours, 32% Fatigue. You'd fall to 34.3% - not ideal but wouldn't be tired anymore. Can still zzz some more.

[09-Aug-18 09:36 PM] That One Lass#8377 Hmm... Let's try one more time! /r 1d6

[09-Aug-18 09:36 PM] Sidekick#6198 @That One Lass#8377: `1d6` = (1) = 1

[09-Aug-18 09:37 PM] Tempest#5018 10 hours, 40% Fatigue flat. Down to 26.3%.

[09-Aug-18 09:37 PM] That One Lass#8377 Well, looks like I won't be getting anymore sleep. Let's get rid of my stress now, shall we? What's on the radio?

[09-Aug-18 09:39 PM] Tempest#5018 _You spent 10 hours sleeping, during which you recovered 40% Fatigue. You wake up not totally refreshed but feeling much better, at 26.3% Fatigue.

The time is now 10:40 PM._ Hit @radio to see what's currently on, then toss me a 1d10 if you want to listen - the result of your roll is doubled, this is the amount of turns you'll spend listening to the radio. Each turn spent will burn 6 minutes, and you will heal 0.1% Stress, as well as benefit from Negated Natural Fatigue.

[09-Aug-18 09:40 PM] That One Lass#8377 @radio

[09-Aug-18 09:40 PM] Tsuchinoko#3861 [FunkeMeUp 98.6 / Funk, Disco] Lonnie Liston Smith & The Cosmic Echoes - Expansions

[09-Aug-18 09:41 PM] Tempest#5018 _Some really classic funk music._

[09-Aug-18 10:05 PM] That One Lass#8377 Hrm. None of these seem really my style but I'll go ahead and read the one comic book, Super Gaggio the Pizza Delivery Guy.

[09-Aug-18 10:05 PM] Tempest#5018 Toss me a 1d8

[09-Aug-18 10:05 PM] That One Lass#8377 /r 1d8

[09-Aug-18 10:05 PM] Sidekick#6198 @That One Lass#8377: `1d8` = (6) = 6

[09-Aug-18 10:06 PM] Tempest#5018 _You sat down and spent 30 turns reading about the pizza delivery super hero, his rocket powered motor scooter, and the many villains that somehow despise pizza. Duirng this time, you healed 3.0% Stress, and that fell down to 14.9%._ _Good for now or do you want to keep reading?_

[09-Aug-18 10:24 PM] That One Lass#8377 I'll put it down.

[09-Aug-18 10:24 PM] Tempest#5018 Okay. Where to next?

[09-Aug-18 10:28 PM] That One Lass#8377 Well, what's on the list of things to do? Dude who I helped clear the town with, where he at?

[09-Aug-18 10:29 PM] Tempest#5018 _He's currently at the town gate, he tasked you with asking around in town about town defense, to find out why no-one is helping him with it._ _Though this is an optional objective. You can return to him instead, cash out the rest of your reward (the money) and leave._

[09-Aug-18 11:30 PM] Tempest#5018 [Session #115 ; Session interrupted]

[18-Aug-18 08:12 PM] Tempest#5018 [Session #115 ; Session resumed] _Welcome back to the Mazes, Pinkie. On the last not-a-session, you rested and read comic books._ [09-Aug-18 10:28 PM] @That One Lass#8377 Well, what's on the list of things to do? Dude who I helped clear the town with, where he at?

[09-Aug-18 10:29 PM] @Tempest#5018 _He's currently at the town gate, he tasked you with asking around in town about town defense, to find out why no-one is helping him with it._ _Though this is an optional objective. You can return to him instead, cash out the rest of your reward (the money) and leave._ _Here is a reminder of the last things I said._

[18-Aug-18 08:15 PM] That One Lass#8377 Alrighty! What's in town? Where's the town map board thing?

[18-Aug-18 08:15 PM] Tempest#5018 < Elkins - Town Map > Food production: Traditional land farm Water production: UA water recycling unit Residential areas: 1 (HR1 Bunkdorms) Social square facilities: Bank, Hiring Bureau, 1 bar (E4), Takeout stand, Library

   The bar is called The Armadillo.

Shops: 3 individual (Clothing shop, Gun shop, Engineering workshop) Special facility: Office complex Other facilities: Generator, Hospital, Town Hall _Here, for your convenience._ _You're currently at the local hospital, in Room 104._

[18-Aug-18 08:20 PM] That One Lass#8377 Quick stat check just to make sure everything on my end is the same as your end, and let's head on out to the bar. That's a good place to start asking people stuff, right?

[18-Aug-18 08:20 PM] Tempest#5018 Bars are always a good first stop for information.

Nutrition: 1406 ntri - OK Hydration: 621 wtr - OK Pain: 0% Fatigue: 26.3% - OK Stress: 14.9% - Moderate _All good on stats?_

[18-Aug-18 08:23 PM] That One Lass#8377 All good, yep! I'm gonna head out of the hospital and go over to the bar.

[18-Aug-18 08:25 PM] Tempest#5018 _You travel 16 rooms to do so, exhausting your use of the hospital room in the process..._

[Elkins - Social square - Bar, _The Armadillo_] _You find yourself in the hall of a spartan little bar. Not many patrons around, it's late in the evening after all._

East: Bar counter room West: Exit to West Street 2

[18-Aug-18 08:26 PM] That One Lass#8377 I'd imagine that bars would be a bit more active later in the day! I'll bounce on over to the bar counter and greet whoever's behind it, if anyone!

[18-Aug-18 08:27 PM] Tempest#5018 [Bar, _The Armadillo_, Counter room]

_About 3 drunkards in the corners of the room, seated at the tables. No-one at the stools. But the barkeep is there; a jovial-looking human male, happily cleaning glasses and mugs._

[18-Aug-18 08:32 PM] That One Lass#8377 "Hiya! Mind if I ask ya a couple questions, mister barkeep?" I ask, leaning against the counter and grinning at him.

[18-Aug-18 08:33 PM] Tempest#5018

    • [Barkeep]** Hey there. Depends what you're askin'... and depends what you're orderin'.

[18-Aug-18 08:41 PM] That One Lass#8377 "Well, I'm not ordering anything, actually! Unless I have to in order to ask you the questions. I'd like to ask you a couple questions about other things! You're probably a knowledgeable guy about the going-ons in town, considering you're a barkeep! Any idea why aren't helpin' Bruce out with keeping the town safe?"

[18-Aug-18 08:43 PM] Tempest#5018

    • [Barkeep]** Oh, that, you know... The few people that still live here, they're tired of the constant critter invasions, yknow? So y'see, not many people really want to help out. But... if y'n order something, or leave a little bit of cash my way, I might be able to tell you more. How's fifty sound to you? S'the cost of a shot of whiskey, so may as well...

[18-Aug-18 08:55 PM] That One Lass#8377 Mmm... I'll put fifty brass coins onto the counter and grin at him. "Here ya go! Fifty." I'd rather not get drunk, 'cuz after being drunk there's not very much fun. So, no drink!

[18-Aug-18 08:56 PM] Tempest#5018 Money pouch: 1240 P$ (1040 brass, 40 copper), 11.2 /20

    • [Barkeep]** _<Grin.>_ Suit yourself. So... People talk, you know. Lots of rumors, lots of hearsay, but from what I hear, the general consensus is that the locals, they don’t like it here. Every day I hear about somebody complaining about their life here. Most of the locals say they’re trying to move away from town. And every so often that’s just what happens, some people simply just leave.
    • [Barkeep]** But recently, with the critter invasions happening almost weekly, and some criminal chuckle-fuck types recently rolling in town thinking that they can get away with anything, I wouldn’t blame any of the locals. They don’t believe in Elkins anymore. As for me, I’m staying until there’s nobody left to serve a drink to...

[18-Aug-18 09:02 PM] That One Lass#8377

      • Gasp.*** "Criminals? How dare they!... also, weekly critter invasions? Eesh!" I say, shocked. Well, not that shocked. "So, people don't wanna tango with the criminals, and there're animals coming around every week. Wow, Elkins sure is in a bad state! That's gotta change. You got anything else?"

[18-Aug-18 09:06 PM] Tempest#5018

    • [Barkeep]** S'all I got, ma'am. That was your money's worth, eh? _<He grins, again.>_

[18-Aug-18 09:16 PM] That One Lass#8377 "Well, in that case..." I take out fifty ***more*** coins, and place them on the counter. "Hit me with a bit more info."

[18-Aug-18 09:17 PM] Tempest#5018 _But this time he pushes them back._

    • [Barkeep]** Oh, no, I was serious this time. I really don't have much more to tell you about it!

[18-Aug-18 09:18 PM] That One Lass#8377 "Aoh. That's all you had. Alrighty! I misunderstood. Thankya!" I grin at the barkeep, and take the coins back. Let's see if we can't get a bit more information. Drunks are talkative too! I stop leaning against the counter and saunter on over to one of the corner tables where there's someone sittin'. "Hiya! Mind if I ask ya something, or would you like a drink on me first?"

[18-Aug-18 09:21 PM] Tempest#5018

    • [Drunk customer]** Hunh? Well, ah shure dun mind a free drank... _<Very slurred>_

[18-Aug-18 09:21 PM] That One Lass#8377 ...I don't think he's sober enough for questions.

[18-Aug-18 09:21 PM] Tempest#5018 _The other two are asleep and seem to use the bar as a rest stop more than anything._

[18-Aug-18 09:26 PM] That One Lass#8377 Oh well. Let's bounce! I really don't think he's sober enough for questions. Let's head over to the takeout stand!

[18-Aug-18 09:27 PM] Tempest#5018 _You move 4 rooms and make it to the local takeout stand..._ _The shop owner appears to be a very young human male - he looks barely 20 if that at all._

[18-Aug-18 09:28 PM] That One Lass#8377 "Hiya! Mind if I ask ya a couple of questions?"

[18-Aug-18 09:29 PM] Tempest#5018

    • [Shop owner]** Hi! I hope it's not to order ice cream, I'm fresh out!

[18-Aug-18 09:32 PM] That One Lass#8377 Somehow, I have a gasp that's even more shocked than the gasp I gave the barkeep. "YOU'RE OUT OF ICECREAM!? Oh no! That's terrible! But no, I'm not ordering food. I'm just wantin' to know a bit more about why people aren't really helping Bruce out with keepin' the town all safe from critters and mobsters!" I grin at the takeout stand owner.

[18-Aug-18 09:40 PM] Tempest#5018

    • [Shop owner]** Bruce? Oh, the guy who's pretending to be security? I don't know, I'm just tryin' to keep my head down.

[18-Aug-18 09:43 PM] That One Lass#8377 "Pretending? Well, what happened to the actual security if he's being security?"

[18-Aug-18 09:48 PM] Tempest#5018

    • [Shop owner]** Uhh... I think they either left, or got eaten.
    • [Shop owner]** That's about it, I think.

[18-Aug-18 10:03 PM] That One Lass#8377 "Oh." Well, that's worrying. Just slightly. "Thanks for the info." Hmm... Let's head on over to the town hall, next. I've an idea!

[18-Aug-18 10:05 PM] Tempest#5018 _What do you plan on doing at the town hall?_

[18-Aug-18 10:06 PM] That One Lass#8377 Askin' around, of course! See why people don't like living here, why they're not helping Bruce out, and why there's no actual security!

[18-Aug-18 10:11 PM] Tempest#5018 _The Town Hall appears - for whatever reason - to be closed._ _Just to save you the trip._ _So far you have learned something interesting, probably enough to report back to Bruce, but if you really want to, you can keep asking around to see how other people in town feel about it._

[18-Aug-18 10:15 PM] That One Lass#8377 Pffffbt. Booo! Let's head over to the gun shop!

[18-Aug-18 10:21 PM] Tempest#5018 _11 rooms later..._ [Shop hub - Gun shop] _The gun shop owner is an old male rat halfling._ _He LOOKS shady, but isn't... as far as you know._

[18-Aug-18 10:29 PM] That One Lass#8377 "Hiya, mister! Mind if I ask you a few questions considering the town, it's defense, and why people don't like living here?" I ask, leaning against the counter and grinning at him.

[18-Aug-18 10:32 PM] Tempest#5018

    • [Shop owner]** Well whaddya know. I wuz chattin' bout this with my neighbor at the clothing shop earlier.
    • [Shop owner]** There's been lots of people buyin' gear... Armor, especially arm and leg armor... Lots of backpacks, you'd swear they'd be packin' their whole lives in them backpacks. And then some dropped by at my place to get ammo, or extra guns...
    • [Shop owner]** But the thing is, once they got done shoppin', they never came back. If y'want my opinion, I think they're quittin' the damn town! Somethin's spookin' them, s'why nobody seems to take care of the town anymore.

[18-Aug-18 10:36 PM] That One Lass#8377 "Somethin's spookin' them?! Huh! Might have something to do with those criminals coming around every so often, which the bartender told me about! You got any opinion on them?" A ask, leaning forward and tilting my head.

[18-Aug-18 10:38 PM] Tempest#5018

    • [Shop owner]** There's fooken CRIMINALS comin' to trash town?!

_He brandishes his personal weapon, a semi-automatic shotgun._

    • [Shop owner]** LET 'EM COME, IMMA PUMP EM FULLA LEAD, them motherfuckin sons-of-whores mumblegrumblenotverypolitemumble

[18-Aug-18 10:44 PM] That One Lass#8377 "Oof, you don't like criminals much, do ya? Don't answer that, I know you don't. Any idea why they might be coming here?"

[18-Aug-18 10:44 PM] Tempest#5018

    • [Shop owner]** Idun have a freakin clue! This is news to me!

[18-Aug-18 10:45 PM] That One Lass#8377 "Hm! Well, on another topic, any idea why the people don't like living here then?"

[18-Aug-18 10:46 PM] Tempest#5018

    • [Shop owner]** Ah dunno. Frkn younguns don't know what's good no more. I sure don't mind livin' here.

[18-Aug-18 10:56 PM] That One Lass#8377 "Well, that's good to hear! I'm Pinkie, by the way." May as well introduce myself and maybe get some ammo!

[18-Aug-18 10:56 PM] Tempest#5018

    • [Shop owner]** _<Slowly lowers, and re-slings his shotgun on his back.>_ Ah, uh, yeah, hello, Penkie. Welcome t'my shop. Forgive m'manners, I forgot to even ask you if y'need anything.

[18-Aug-18 10:58 PM] That One Lass#8377 "I didn't really come in lookin' for much, just to ask some questions. Buuuut I won't say no to buying a bit more ammunition! Got any 5.56?"

[18-Aug-18 11:04 PM] That One Lass#8377 How much space does a box take up?

[18-Aug-18 11:05 PM] Tempest#5018 None - depends on the weight of the ammo. 5.56 is 0.01 weight a round so one box is 0.2

[18-Aug-18 11:08 PM] That One Lass#8377 Ohkay! "I'll take the two boxes of match!" I grin at the shop owner, and get out 480 brass coins!

[18-Aug-18 11:08 PM] Tempest#5018 Money pouch: 760 P$ (560 brass, 40 copper), 6.4 /20 [Ammunition] Box of 5.56x45mm NATO, Standard Match, 20 rounds - [20/20] - Weight: 0.2 (0.01 per round) [Ammunition] Box of 5.56x45mm NATO, Standard Match, 20 rounds - [20/20] - Weight: 0.2 (0.01 per round)

    • [Shop owner]** Here y'go, all yours.

_I'm assuming they're going in the backpack?_

[18-Aug-18 11:11 PM] That One Lass#8377 Correct! 37/40 now.

[18-Aug-18 11:11 PM] Tempest#5018 _One turn later, and 40 rounds of high-quality, Match-grade ammo are now yours._ Yep, 37 /40.

[18-Aug-18 11:13 PM] That One Lass#8377 Imma have to load up a magazine with this ammo, later. "Thank you! That's all I need for now, I'm gonna go talk to a few more people then talk with Bruce again. Seeya!" And with that, I head out and over to the engineering workshop !

[18-Aug-18 11:15 PM] Tempest#5018 _Just three rooms later..._ [Shop hub - Engineering workshop]

_The shop has, surprisingly enough, a couple of clients in the corner, discussing some sort of technical subject. The shop owner and resident engineer is a human female, reading a very thick book._

[18-Aug-18 11:18 PM] That One Lass#8377 I hop on over to the shop owner, and grin at her. "Hiya! I've got a couple questions, if you don't mind me asking you some stuff!"

[18-Aug-18 11:33 PM] Tempest#5018

    • [Engineer]** 'Sup?

[18-Aug-18 11:35 PM] That One Lass#8377 "Do, uh, you look at schematics and such?"

[18-Aug-18 11:35 PM] Tempest#5018

    • [Engineer]** LIke, blueprints? Yeah, I buy and sell 'em.

[18-Aug-18 11:40 PM] That One Lass#8377 "Well, uh, I've got a blueprint that doesn't really interest me." I say, and take out the single blueprint I've got, the T Armor leg pads and titanium plated jockstrap. ...and I place it on the counter. "Also, where do I go for getting a engineering document looked at?"

[18-Aug-18 11:42 PM] Tempest#5018

    • [Engineer]** Those weird Specs Docs thing? I think the workshop in Calfair Sector handles those.

[18-Aug-18 11:44 PM] That One Lass#8377 "Thank you! How much for this blueprint, by the way?"

[18-Aug-18 11:44 PM] Tempest#5018

    • [Engineer]** Anyway, sure, I'll buy your old blueprint if you want. T-FL blueprint, so... I'll buy it back from you for 5 bucks.

[18-Aug-18 11:45 PM] That One Lass#8377 "Alrighty!"

[18-Aug-18 11:48 PM] Tempest#5018 _You sold your T-FL blueprint for 5 P$._

[Money] 1 P$ coin - 1 P$ - Brass - Weight: (variable, 0.01 per coin) - [Quantity: 5]

Money pouch: 765 P$ (565 brass, 40 copper), 6.45 /20

    • [Engineer]** Here y'go. Need anythin' else?

[19-Aug-18 12:02 AM] That One Lass#8377 "I've been going around town and askin' a few select individuals why the rest of the town isn't helping Bruce out with keepin' the town safe now that there's no security force. Got any thoughts on this?"

[19-Aug-18 12:05 AM] Tempest#5018

    • [Engineer]** None really. I don't care much to be honest. I heard shit was going down, but we're deep enough in town that I'm not feeling bothered. If I'm ever bothered by this, I'll just move out.

[19-Aug-18 12:16 AM] That One Lass#8377 "Okay! That's... really all I needed. Thankya!" I grin at the engineer, and then head on over to the three tech-babbling clients! "Hiya! Mind if I ask the three of you something?"

[19-Aug-18 12:17 AM] Tempest#5018

    • [Citizen #2]** Hey, do you mind? We're busy here.

[19-Aug-18 12:24 AM] That One Lass#8377 "It's just a couple of questions! Please?"

[19-Aug-18 12:26 AM] Tempest#5018 _They stonewall you._ _Looks like there's not many people in Elkins willing to help.. is it the bad air?_

[19-Aug-18 12:33 AM] That One Lass#8377 Ugh. "Fine. Sorry for asking." I say, and turn and walk on out. Hmph. I'm gonna go talk with Bruce now.

[19-Aug-18 12:34 AM] Tempest#5018 _You cross through town, walking the sixteen rooms leading back to the Town Gate, where Bruce is waiting._ [Town Entrance - Town Gate]

[19-Aug-18 12:40 AM] That One Lass#8377 I bounce on over to Bruce and wave. "Hiya, Bruce! I talked around a little bit. I started at the bar, 'cus barkeepers know things, then went on over to the gunshop and talked with the owner there. Did you know there are criminals that come to town?" "Also, the takeout stand is out of ice-cream. That's the ***worst*** thing I discovered."

[19-Aug-18 12:42 AM] Tempest#5018

    • [Bruce]** _<Blank stare, before realizing you're only talking about ice cream.>_ Oh. Wait, what? Say that part again? The one about criminals.

[19-Aug-18 12:45 AM] That One Lass#8377 "Oh, yeah. Mister barkeep told me that there are some criminals coming around 'cuz they can do what they want, and people also don't like it here!"

[19-Aug-18 12:46 AM] Tempest#5018

    • [Bruce]** _<He looks genuinely shocked>_

[19-Aug-18 12:47 AM] That One Lass#8377 "I've also got a question for you! Know what happened to the security around here? I heard they left or got eaten."

[19-Aug-18 12:47 AM] Tempest#5018

    • [Bruce]** ... You know what, I think I got this all wrong from the beginning. You might've just saved me, and this whole town, if I can do what I need to do. I'm going to do whatever I can to rally everyone that's still left, make them understand the threat that's about to hit this town. And to answer your question, yes, that's more or less what happened. Not enough competence behind the guns the mayor was hiring to be Town Security.
    • [Bruce]** So they did, in fact, either end up quitting, or eaten.

[19-Aug-18 12:48 AM] That One Lass#8377 "Huh? Do what you need to do? Lemme guess, you're gonna start a militia."

[19-Aug-18 12:48 AM] Tempest#5018

    • [Bruce]** But soon, all that is going to change. Thank you. You've gone above and beyond. I'm going to double your reward money.
    • [Bruce]** How does 800 P$ sound?

[19-Aug-18 12:49 AM] That One Lass#8377 What was my original payment? 400?

[19-Aug-18 12:52 AM] Tempest#5018 He planned to give you about 450. So it's not exactly double, but he's spitballing.

[19-Aug-18 12:54 AM] That One Lass#8377 It's more than the original amount, that's what counts! "That's fine! What've you got planned, Bruce?"

[19-Aug-18 12:56 AM] Tempest#5018

    • [Bruce]** I'm gonna do my job for once. Now, I'm going to ask you to leave - we have to prepare this town for an incoming attack, after all.
    • [Bruce]** Again, thank you - and if this pans out, rest assured that you'll always be welcome here.

Sidequest completed: **S1-2** - What's Left of a Small Town _Bruce has wired 800 P$ to your account._ Bank balance is now at 840 P$

[19-Aug-18 12:59 AM] That One Lass#8377 I had money in it before??? Huh. "What, not gonna ask for some help with keeping the town safe? That's fine." And yet again, I beam at Bruce.

[19-Aug-18 12:59 AM] Tempest#5018 You had 40 P$ as leftover money after the shooting range quest.

[19-Aug-18 01:00 AM] Tempest#5018

    • [Bruce]** Oh, I would, but I think you've done more than enough, friend. Now, go. I've got a lot of convincing to do...

_You still have S1-3 active, and since you carry those 20 pieces of meat, all you'd have to do is travel back to Arnett, sell 'em to Bill Pickens, and complete that sidequest in turn._

[19-Aug-18 01:12 AM] That One Lass#8377 Yup! I'm gonna head on out of the town, then, and head back over to Arnett! Skip travel, please.

[19-Aug-18 01:18 AM] Tempest#5018 _You step one room south, then prepare to leave._ _You skip through 23 rooms, traveling for 1 hours and 55 minutes, eventually reaching the town of Arnett again._

[Arnett - Town Entrance - Gap corridor] _It is a new day! Woodsday, Quartema 6, Year 704, the time is now 12:35 AM._

[19-Aug-18 01:19 AM] That One Lass#8377 What all is there in Arnett, again? And, I'd like a list of what's in towns when I arrive from now-on please.

[19-Aug-18 01:21 AM] Tempest#5018 Sure, not a problem. S1-3: Come a Huntin' Man Objective 3: Return to Arnett's Diner and sell your meat to Chef Pickens < Arnett - Town Map > Food production: Hydroponics and cloning farm Water production: UA water recycling unit Residential areas: 3 (HR1 Bunkdorms, HR2 Dormitories, HR3 Double beds) + Hotel

   The hotel is called East Point Hotel.

Social square facilities: Bank, Hiring bureau, Bar, Restaurant [Diner], Takeout stand, Shooting range, Library

   The bar in E4 is called The Bolt Face.
   The diner in E7 is called Bill’s Burgers.

Shops: 3 individual (Gun shop, Clothing shop, Forge) Special facility: Laboratory (GT - Biotech/Genetics) Other facilities: Hospital, Generator, Town Hall

[19-Aug-18 01:23 AM] That One Lass#8377 I'll head over to Bill's Burgers, then.

[19-Aug-18 01:30 AM] Tempest#5018 _Ten rooms later..._ [Arnett - Social Square - Diner, _Bill's Burgers_]

_You make it into the dining hall of Bill's Burgers. Since it's now 12:35 AM, there isn't many people around - barely any customers, yet the waitress still stands ready to seat and serve the next ones._ _The kitchen is just one room to the north._

[19-Aug-18 01:36 AM] That One Lass#8377 I give the waitress a wave. "Mornin'! Bill around? I've got the meat for him."

[19-Aug-18 01:36 AM] Tempest#5018

    • [Waitress]** Oh, hi! Yes, he's working overtime in the kitchen. Feel free to go see him!

[19-Aug-18 01:38 AM] That One Lass#8377 "Thankya!" I'm gonna head on into the kitchen now, and greet Bill when I'm in there. "Hiya Bill! I've got the meat for you."

[19-Aug-18 01:40 AM] Tempest#5018

    • [Bill]** Oh, you're back! My savior! How much do you have for me?

[19-Aug-18 01:47 AM] That One Lass#8377 "Saaaadly only the amount you asked for, I don't have enough space for more than that right now. But, if I find another bison that's preeetty angry I'll be sure to come back and give you it's meat, too!" And I slide my backback off and get the bison meat to him.

[19-Aug-18 01:47 AM] Tempest#5018 _The chef happily takes the twenty slabs of meat from you._ BP/Main: 16.99 /40

    • [Bill]** And just as promised, 20 P$ per slab of meat, which is double the usual rate... So 400 P$! Which I'll have wired to your account right now.

Bank balance: 1240 P$

[19-Aug-18 01:49 AM] That One Lass#8377 I'm rich! Rich! Well, not that rich.

[19-Aug-18 01:49 AM] Tempest#5018 Sidequest complete: **S1-3** - Come a Huntin' Man _All Tier 1 sidequests are done! You now have access to Tier 2._

[19-Aug-18 01:50 AM] That One Lass#8377 Suh-weet.

[19-Aug-18 01:54 AM] Tempest#5018

    • [Bill]** Well, thanks a bunch again! I'll make sure to recommend you, you seem like a reliable contractor!

[19-Aug-18 01:54 AM] That One Lass#8377 So, how's my account balance sorted? Where do I find out what it is? Do I just ask you?

[19-Aug-18 01:55 AM] Tempest#5018 You can check at the bank. Every town has one. There, you can withdraw or deposit, and you can make use of the item vault, which is essentially an infinite amount of storage space.

[19-Aug-18 01:55 AM] That One Lass#8377 Sweet.

[19-Aug-18 01:55 AM] Tempest#5018 The item vault has a caveat however - items deposited in it takes ingame time to withdraw because they're sent to an unspecified vault somewhere and a withdraw request is really a request to pull it out and have a courier deliver it to the bank where you are. So you can think of it as a post office, too.

[19-Aug-18 01:59 AM] That One Lass#8377 "Have a good day, Bill!" And I head out of the restaurant. Time to hit up the hiring bureau! Time to get a job of being a free-lance mercenary! Huzzah! I always wanted to be one. Oh wait, no, I wanted to be a baker.

[19-Aug-18 02:01 AM] Tempest#5018 _He waves at you as you leave. Another good job well done._ _6 rooms later..._ [Social Square - Hiring Bureau]

_...you reach the ol' Hiring Bureau again._

[19-Aug-18 02:02 AM] That One Lass#8377 Huzzah! I'd like to end the session here.

[19-Aug-18 02:02 AM] Tempest#5018 Fair enough! Well, that was a good one, finished two quests and got some money! [Session #115 ; Session end]
