From Mazeworld

May 29 20:42:00 <Hebizuka> [Session start!] May 29 20:43:15 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _Welcome back to the Mazes, Shizo Chou. You are currently in the Arnett Hiring Bureau, after having received information on Semitas, the closest Angelic-controlled town. Your current and only objective is to head to Semitas and speak to the shrine maidens there._ May 29 20:44:58 <HashiBot> <Degenerate> *Onwards, the punky-bunny saunters towards where ever the hell "out" is here, making sure to look for someone with big feet like hers to lift some shoes off of.* May 29 20:46:39 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _The way out is towards the Town Gate, which is six rooms away and which you travel quickly. The Town Gate is the entrance point of the town, and it is guarded by two bored humans with weapons and badges, which read "TOWN SECURITY", local law enforcement. Nothing indicates they're going to stop you. The way out of town is south._ May 29 20:47:30 <HashiBot> <Degenerate> *I go SOUTH, emphasizing this like every other text-based RPG on DOS-like command prompts* May 29 20:48:08 <HashiBot> <Tempest> `You are likely to be eaten by a grue.` May 29 20:48:16 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _...No, not really._ May 29 20:49:41 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _You find yourself at the edge of town, in the Gap corridor, the last bit of safety before the Uncivilized Area. Before you, several doors, and many directional signs, which show the closest towns that can be reached from Arnett; **Elkins** to the north, **I-09** to the west, and **Semitas** to the south._ May 29 20:51:05 <HashiBot> <Degenerate> *Zo doesn't know what any of this if, scratching the back of her long, pointed ear as she looks to the list of towns. Mmm... Semitas, right? Well, perhaps a little detour could be made. I-09 sounded like a highway... that's how she'd get home, right? Let's go there.* May 29 20:51:31 <HashiBot> <Tempest> (( I-09 stands for Intersection 09. May 29 20:51:38 <HashiBot> <Tempest> (( Still OK? May 29 20:51:52 <HashiBot> <Degenerate> ( Yarp, let's do it ) May 29 20:52:49 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _You have selected I-09 as your destination. Please select a traveling style: **Fast** (Fastest option, moderate danger level and loot) // **Safe** (Slower, less dangerous but less loot) // **Deep** (Slowest option, highest danger level and loot_ May 29 20:53:19 <HashiBot> <Degenerate> ( Let's try Fast ) May 29 20:54:03 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _You will reach your destination in **13** rooms. Now generating the next rooms!..._ May 29 20:54:55 <Hebizuka> [Next rooms] Left: Vault room, abandoned // Front: Empty club room, disaffected // Right: Corridor May 29 20:55:14 <HashiBot> <Degenerate> ( Let's go right ) May 29 20:58:13 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _And so you venture for the first time into the UA, about to get your first taste of the Mazes... The first area you enter is a featureless corridor, simply used as a roadway. There is something abandoned in the corner of the room, it seems to be a **can of ammunition**..._ May 29 20:58:50 <HashiBot> <Degenerate> *Shizou peeks into the can of ammo, deciding it's probably best to stock up while she can* May 29 20:59:51 <HashiBot> <Tempest> [Ammunition] Bulk can of .45 Colt, Pocket Dragon (+P+) LSWC, 500 rounds - [213/500] - Weight: 4.26 May 29 21:00:23 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _Powerful, defensive ammunition for .45 Colt revolvers and rifles. Less than half of the huge bulk can is full, but that's still a whole 213 rounds._ May 29 21:00:33 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _This is probably worth a lot of money._ May 29 21:01:05 <HashiBot> <Degenerate> *Shizou can probably find use for this - and with 213 rounds, at the very least, someone will be buying. She stashes it and sallies forth* May 29 21:01:27 <HashiBot> <Tempest> [Backpack / Main] 4.26 /60 May 29 21:02:01 <Hebizuka> [Next rooms] Left: Roadway // Front: Scullery, abandoned // Right: Roadway May 29 21:02:29 <HashiBot> <Degenerate> ( Let's take the Scullery ( May 29 21:05:47 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _An abandoned scullery, with its many sinks and a pair of dishwashers. The sinks seem functional, and the dishwashers appear to be powered. You are not alone in this room; a pair of desert-camouflage-clad, heavily armed and armored people are also present; they are **Phantom Forces**. One of them is a lieutenant, the other is a private._ May 29 21:06:09 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _You are on Side 1. They are on Side 4. You haven't been noticed yet, but it doesn't look like they're hostile. They seem to be searching for something._ May 29 21:07:34 <HashiBot> <Degenerate> *Zo keeps her hands on her hips, calling out rather unabashedly to the pair:* **"Something I can help you with, fellas?"** *The rabbit's ears flick to attention, acting a bit more polite than usual on account of the rather terrifying weapons on these two.* May 29 21:08:07 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _The lieutenant carries some kind of combat rifle. The private has a smaller carbine of some sort._ May 29 21:08:30 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[PF Lieutenant]** Come on... It can't be far. ... Oh, uh. Good morning, citizen. May 29 21:08:44 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[PF Private]** Why am I always on these boring ass missions... May 29 21:09:32 <HashiBot> <Degenerate> *Shizou's ears listen into their words carefully, shifting her weight from one hip to the other.* **"What're you looking for now...?"** May 29 21:10:19 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[PF Lieutenant]** Well, actually, you might be able to help us. _<He approaches you, and pulls out a photo from his tactical vest.>_ Have you seen this man? May 29 21:11:34 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _The photo is a slightly blurry, color mugshot of a satori- a three-eyed youkai. The satori looks aged, weary, and has the looks of a fighter, someone who has seen more than enough shit in his life. The third eye is black._ May 29 21:12:51 <HashiBot> <Degenerate> **"Can't say I have... but I'll tell ya what. If you got a spare photograph to lend me and a line I can talk to you with, I'd be happy to do a little headhunting. This guy worth any money?"** *Shizou asks, happy to start up a manhunt for some kicks* May 29 21:14:37 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[PF Lieutenant]** Well, this is Satoshi Sangi, sometimes called "Black Eye". He is the leader of the Youkai Activist group... Probably one of the most dangerous people in the Mazes. We got reports that he was sighted here in the Eastern Zone, but so far we haven't even been able to find a clue or a trace of his passage at all yet... May 29 21:14:57 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[PF Lieutenant]** We'd like the assistance of the population on his whereabouts, the Colonel would be ready to greatly reward any information leading to his capture. Or death. May 29 21:16:16 <HashiBot> <Degenerate> **"I'll keep my eyes peeled."** *Shizo nods, gesturing to the room.* **"Mind if I look around here for some supplies?"** May 29 21:17:10 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[PF Lieutenant]** Feel free. _<He turns to the female Private.>_ Tanner! Stop looking in the dishwashers! I said no scavenging! May 29 21:17:33 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[PF Private]** _<Moaning and huffing.>_ We're wasting our time, Lieutenant, he ain't here... Can't I look for stuff too? May 29 21:18:09 <HashiBot> <Degenerate> *Shizou scoffs, hiding her chiding laughter beneath her hand.* **"If I find some extra shiny spoons, you can have them."** May 29 21:18:27 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _The private huffs and pouts at you, figuring you're teasing her._ May 29 21:18:45 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _Sadly, it does appear that besides the sinks and two empty dishwashers, there isn't anything to loot here._ May 29 21:19:27 <HashiBot> <Degenerate> *Shizo, shrugging, decides to move on. Sangi, huh? Ought to ask about it at the next town.* May 29 21:20:17 <Hebizuka> [Next rooms] Left: Empty shooting lanes, forsaken // Front: Corridor // Right: Laboratory room, **dark** May 29 21:20:34 <HashiBot> <Degenerate> ( Let's take the corridor ) May 29 21:21:48 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _Another corridor, another step forwards. There are abandoned objects on the floor here - some **food**, and what appears to be a strange piece of **armor**._ May 29 21:23:06 <HashiBot> <Degenerate> *Shizou decides to inspect both items* May 29 21:23:17 <Hebizuka> [Food] Beverage - Bottle of cider. 56 ntri, 30 wtr per part [5/5 parts] - Alcoholic (Inebriation +0.8 per part) - Addictive (Alcohol) - Weight: 1 May 29 21:23:17 <Hebizuka> [Clothing] Footwear - Shinobi tabi - AC: A1 - Blunt-resistant - Weight: 3 - (Condition: Damaged) May 29 21:24:07 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _Kevlar-lined, rubber boots with separated toes, styled after the stereotypical ninja attire. More resistant to damage than the average shoes._ May 29 21:24:54 <HashiBot> <Degenerate> *The lapine isn't in the condition to be picky about her gear at the moment. She takes the shoes, placing them upon her feet, and stashes the bottle of cider dutifully away as well before proceeding onward.* May 29 21:25:58 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _You took a quick moment to equip the boots, which are now yours, most definitely!_ May 29 21:26:32 <HashiBot> <Tempest> [Backpack / Main] 5.26 /60 May 29 21:27:18 <Hebizuka> [Next rooms] Left: Shower room, forsaken // Front: Empty shooting lanes, abandoned // Right: Scullery, disaffected May 29 21:27:48 <HashiBot> <Degenerate> ( Let's shower up ) May 29 21:27:49 <HashiBot> <Gear> Level up! @Degenerate is now **level 8**. May 29 21:28:20 <HashiBot> <Tempest> (( Don't forget to add items to your sheet as you take 'em May 29 21:29:57 <HashiBot> <Degenerate> 💯 May 29 21:32:08 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _A forsaken shower room. The atmosphere here - and particularly the smell - is awful. The pipes are rusted, the walls and floor appear to be covered with patches of green-yellowish moss. It looks like this room hasn't seen maintenance in hundreds of years. None of the showerheads appear functional. Sadly, this means there isn't anything of use here._ May 29 21:32:13 <Hebizuka> [Next rooms] Left: Roadway // Front: Roadway // Right: Laundry room, abandoned May 29 21:32:50 <HashiBot> <Degenerate> ( I guess we enter the laundry next? ) May 29 21:35:18 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _An abandoned laundry room. Here, you see six washing machines, still powered. Although the room looks old, it hasn't decayed that badly yet. The machines have been looted already, however, and there is nothing else populating the room, besides yourself. Another empty room. At least it means less time to waste._ May 29 21:35:26 <Hebizuka> [Next rooms] Left: Empty shrine, **dark** // Front: Kitchen, abandoned // Right: Pathway May 29 21:36:26 <HashiBot> <Degenerate> ( Let's try the kitchen? ) May 29 21:39:42 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _An abandoned kitchen. Formerly an element of a restaurant, it is now abandoned to the UA. You can see a fridge, drawers, a sink and stoves. All of the powered furniture is still powered. Such rooms are, however, prime looting targets - all the furniture here is empty. There is, however, a **supply crate** lying there on the floor, presumably lost, or maybe, hilariously, delivered to the wrong spot._ May 29 21:41:31 <HashiBot> <Degenerate> *Shizou looks to the box with a curious look. She doesn't expect anyone to drop this thing off without knowing it doesn't belong in a kitchen. Cautiously, the lapine tries to pry open the lid and see what's inside of this thing.* **"Man, where is everyone here? I'm just a block away from a town loaded with chucklefucks and here it's all dead. Perfect spot to put a town... at least there's no noisy neighbors."** May 29 21:41:54 <Hebizuka> _The loot inside of the crate is yours to take:_ May 29 21:41:57 <Hebizuka> <Supply crate: LBE-PAK1> May 29 21:41:57 <Hebizuka> [LBE] (Tactical vest) TT-1A Assault vest - Capacity 5 units + Ammo (6 mags only, max tier: Large) May 29 21:41:57 <Hebizuka> [LBE] (Backpack) ALICE Mark 2 - Capacity 45 units + Class 4 pouch (max 4) + Spare wpn. (1x C1 or C2, max wgt 18) May 29 21:41:57 <Hebizuka> [LBE] (Utility belt) Eagle battle belt - Capacity 4 units + Ammo 1 (2 mags only, max tier: Medium) + Ammo 2 (2 pistol mags only, max tier: Small) + Spare wpn. (1x C3 wpn only, max wgt 3) May 29 21:41:57 <Hebizuka> [LBE] (Leg rig) Condor utility rig - Capacity 4 units May 29 21:41:57 <Hebizuka> [LBE] (Leg rig) Condor utility rig - Capacity 4 units May 29 21:42:19 <Hebizuka> _A full suite of load-bearing equipment. It even SMELLS new._ May 29 21:43:42 <HashiBot> <Degenerate> *Shizou's eyes jump open real wide, her cotton-puff tail wiggling in excitement. It's like a serial killer cracking open a loot crate, she begins to dig through it all and don whatever she can!* May 29 21:44:43 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _You can immediately wear the tactical vest, and both leg rigs. For the rest, you must choose whether to replace your current backpack (Jaeger rucksack) with the ALICE Mark 2, as well as your current belt (Basic utility belt) with the Eagle battle belt._ May 29 21:45:25 <HashiBot> <Degenerate> ( I'll swap the belts out but leave the old backpack on ) May 29 21:45:51 <HashiBot> <Tempest> (( Noted. I'll help you with the LBE on your sheet. May 29 21:46:31 <HashiBot> <Degenerate> ( I think I got the leg rigs set, I just need help with the belt swap ) May 29 21:48:40 <HashiBot> <Tempest> (( One sec May 29 21:53:35 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _When replacing the LE Duty Belt with the Eagle Battle Belt, one of the pistol magazines was moved to Ammunition 1, and the other two to Ammunition 2._ May 29 21:53:59 <HashiBot> <Degenerate> 👌 ( Thanks for the help there! ) May 29 21:54:39 <HashiBot> <Tempest> (( And done May 29 21:54:46 <HashiBot> <Tempest> (( No prob, I know it can be ab it confusing May 29 21:55:10 <HashiBot> <Degenerate> ( Figured if I'm swapping out my whole kit, might as well make sure it's done right. ) May 29 21:55:29 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _Both of your legs now have extra bags, you've thrown a nifty tactical vest over your chest, and on top of that, you have a brand new belt._ May 29 21:55:48 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _All that's left is the backpack, which will remain in the crate._ May 29 21:56:26 <HashiBot> <Degenerate> *Shizou decides to leave that for another lucky person. Not as lucky as she is, but still, she don't need it! Onwards...?* May 29 21:58:24 <Hebizuka> [Next rooms] Left: Prison room, forsaken // Front: Pathway // Right: Dining hall, abandoned May 29 21:58:58 <HashiBot> <Degenerate> ( Pathway sounds alright, I don't want to go back to prison ) May 29 22:01:31 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _A pathway. Nothing more than an empty room, serving as part of the road. There's another **Maze Soldier** here - a Sergeant, this time - but he wears a different uniform - he seems to be simply part of the Regular Forces. He seems to be alone, and carrying a combat rifle. You are on Side 1, and he is on Side 2. He's sitting against the wall, reading a book, and seems weary from traveling._ May 29 22:01:40 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _You haven't been noticed yet, but again, he hardly looks hostile._ May 29 22:02:48 <HashiBot> <Degenerate> *It doesn't look like he's looking for a fight. Giving the plainest of up-nods, Zo carries on like Kansas.* May 29 22:03:08 <Hebizuka> _Carry on then, my wayward Zo...n._ May 29 22:03:30 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _The soldier simply says "Hello", and lets you carry on forwards._ May 29 22:04:14 <Hebizuka> [Next rooms] Left: Bedroom (Bunks), **overgrown** // Front: Vault room, abandoned // Right: Locker room, **deserted** May 29 22:04:44 <HashiBot> <Degenerate> ( Let's try this vault thingy ) May 29 22:06:38 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _An abandoned vault room. Once upon a time, this was an essential part of a bank. But now, it has been left to the UA and thoroughly looted and gutted. Someone has lost a **medical item**, though, which is now resting on the floor.è May 29 22:07:06 <HashiBot> <Degenerate> *Shizou goes to see just what was left behind...* May 29 22:07:09 <HashiBot> <Tempest> (( typo May 29 22:07:20 <HashiBot> <Tempest> [Meds] Nitrous oxide inhaler - Pain sensitivity -50%, Nausea, Euphoria Rush for 1d6+2 turns - Weight: 0.1 May 29 22:08:42 <HashiBot> <Degenerate> *She has no idea what this is for, but it'll be useful for... something, she guesses. Into the rucksack and onwards she sallies forth* May 29 22:08:49 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _"WARNING: May cause uncontrolled laughing fits."_ May 29 22:09:00 <HashiBot> <Degenerate> ( Duly noted ) May 29 22:09:21 <HashiBot> <Tempest> [Backpack / Main] 5.36/60 May 29 22:10:13 <Hebizuka> [Next rooms] Left: Dining hall, abandoned // Front: Storage room, abandoned // Right: Deactivated room May 29 22:11:28 <HashiBot> <Degenerate> ( Deactivated... room? ) May 29 22:12:15 <HashiBot> <Tempest> (( A room that once had furniture, like most of the rooms you've visited, but which has been completely stripped out and emptied. May 29 22:12:18 <HashiBot> <Degenerate> ( Let's do that ) May 29 22:13:41 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _The deactivated room still has the lines and markings of its now missing furniture, on the walls and on the floor. There is no mistaking it though, this room has no purpose anymore besides as a road. You must be following the trail of some kind of medic or courier transporting meds with a hole in his bag - because there is another **medical item** on the floor..._ May 29 22:14:09 <HashiBot> <Degenerate> *Shizou likes drugs, and henceforth, obtains this item as well* May 29 22:14:28 <HashiBot> <Tempest> [Meds] White tablet - Unidentified - Weight: 0.1 May 29 22:14:49 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _You will need to find someone who can tell you what that is._ May 29 22:15:01 <HashiBot> <Degenerate> *It'll be fun to slip in someone's drink. Stashed, noted, and cataloged, the bunny babe moves onwards* May 29 22:15:06 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _Or chance it and swallow it to figure it out by the effects, but that would be a desperate move._ May 29 22:15:46 <HashiBot> <Tempest> [Backpack / Main] 5.46/60 May 29 22:16:23 <Hebizuka> [Next rooms] Left: Pathway // Front: Empty workshop, disaffected // Right: Shower room, abandoned May 29 22:16:40 <HashiBot> <Degenerate> ( Let's take the showers this time ) May 29 22:18:10 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _This shower room is in better shape. It's still old and it hasn't seen maintenance in untold amounts of time, but the pipes and showerheads appear to be, this time, functional. Still no bad guys in sight - you can mess with the showers, or check out the **object** that someone left in one of the temporary lockers._ May 29 22:18:33 <HashiBot> <Degenerate> *Zo observes said object* May 29 22:18:39 <HashiBot> <Tempest> [Item] Box of super-aramid fiber sheets. Experimental fibers with greater tensile strength than standard body armor fibers. - Weight: 1 May 29 22:19:45 <HashiBot> <Degenerate> *Shizo thinks she'll pass. However, she does wish to check on the showers here. Bathe up and what not - she hasn't washed up in a bit. It might be a good idea to refresh herself here while she can.* May 29 22:20:36 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _If you wish to take a shower, please roll a 1d8*2._ May 29 22:21:06 <HashiBot> Command sent from Discord by Degenerate: May 29 22:21:06 <HashiBot> @roll 1d8*2 May 29 22:21:06 <MazeBot> HashiBot: 16:8*2 May 29 22:23:00 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _The showerhead turns on, and you spend a full 16 turns under the showers. The water is cold... But it feels refreshing, reinvigorating, even. You feel as though you've regained a bit of energy._ May 29 22:23:10 <HashiBot> <Tempest> [Fatigue has decreased. It is now at 3.7%] May 29 22:23:25 <HashiBot> <Tempest> [You feel **energized** due to very low fatigue levels. You sustain secondary effects:] May 29 22:23:56 <HashiBot> <Tempest> [Secondary effect] Energized: May 29 22:24:09 <HashiBot> <Tempest> Pain sensitivity -10%. (Currently at 90%.) May 29 22:25:28 <HashiBot> <Degenerate> *Shizou stretches out, feeling rather energetic after spending a bit of time in the UA's amazingly crisp and totally not shady public shower system. The bunny is happy to have gotten her wash on, looking nice and squeaky clean! After putting her clothes back on once more, the lapine is ready to move on.* May 29 22:26:43 <Hebizuka> [Next rooms] Left: Empty workshop, disaffected // Front: Youkai bedroom (danchi), abandoned // Right: Hospital bedroom, disaffected May 29 22:27:11 <HashiBot> <Degenerate> ( Let's raid someone's bedroom after using their shower - a youkai's bedroom at that. Oooooh baby. ) May 29 22:29:42 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _A danchi - a communal bedroom in the youkai style. There are eight futons in this room - this is probably the youkai equivalent of bunk bedrooms. You see eight nightstands, a television, a radio, a heated table, and several sitting pillows. The powered furniture is still functional, you can turn them on if you wish. However, that may have to wait..._ May 29 22:30:28 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _...Because you see yet another military woman, a **Phantom Forces Sergeant**, busy searching through the nightstands. She has another kind of combat rifle. She is on Side 2. Same deal as before, you haven't been spotted yet._ May 29 22:30:40 <HashiBot> <Degenerate> ( May have to pause here, Temp. Mind bookending this? ) May 29 22:30:47 <HashiBot> <Tempest> (( Don't mind at all. May 29 22:30:55 <HashiBot> <Degenerate> ( Alright, gotta book it. Sorry for the hasty exit. ) May 29 22:31:02 <HashiBot> <Tempest> (( We'll just have to see who Mystery Sergeant is next time. See you later! May 29 22:31:39 <Hebizuka> [Session end!]
