From Mazeworld

Jun 05 18:48:11 <Hebizuka> [Session start!] Jun 05 18:48:22 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _After what seems like an eternity, you wake up. You have a bit of trouble understanding what happened... The last thing you remember, you're pretty sure you died, but here you are, slowly waking up from what seemed like a very long nap. The first thing you notice is that you're waking up in a hospital bedroom. It doesn't look like home or anywhere familiar._ Jun 05 18:48:24 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _The next thing you notice is that there appears to be someone waiting for you at your bedside ; a fifty-something man, dressed in a lab coat, with a look of concern - or is it relief? - on his face. He observes you waking up, but doesn't say a thing, figuring you want the first word._ Jun 05 18:50:24 <HashiBot> <Nagisa Ashigaru> *The Kappa feels groggy, to say the least. Rubbing her eyes, she reaches around for her glasses, though she fails in finding them. Seeing at least the blurry silhouette of someone, looks over to him with an inquisitive look* "I suppose you have my glasses" Jun 05 18:52:09 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _The blurry doctor hands you a pair of glasses._ Jun 05 18:52:38 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Medic]** Good morning, miss Ashigaru. I think you're going to need these. It's a pleasure to see you are among the living again. I've been monitoring your vital signs for a while now, and they've all been stable. You probably feel confused, right now, and I understand, but first, I must ask you something; what is the last thing you remember? Jun 05 18:55:11 <HashiBot> <Nagisa Ashigaru> *The Kappa adjusts the glasses and puts them on, blinking a few times before she regains clear sight. Looking up at the doctor, she raises an eyebrow.* "Among the living...Was I dead then? Last thing that I remember was yelling at Minari to get me the proper schematics to the bridge we were building. Stupid kappa, she's a clutz, Minari. You should get her in here so I can give her a good talking to, eh?" Jun 05 18:55:54 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Medic]** Excellent. You still have memories from before your... transition. I'd say that means you're okay. Let me explain myself ; you have, in fact, died. However, my superior, the Administrator, saw fit to select you for what I can best describe as bringing you back from the dead. You are no longer at home, miss Ashigaru, you are somewhere else entirely - this realm is called the Mazes. Jun 05 18:56:48 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Medic]** I'm just surprised about something. You are a kappa, yes? Jun 05 18:58:35 <HashiBot> <Nagisa Ashigaru> *Nagisa listens, nodding a bit.* "The Mazes huh. Is this some enginee- well, yeah I'm a kappa. Do I look like anything else to you?" Jun 05 18:59:11 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Medic]** Goody goody goody... This has gone perfectly well then... But - I'm sorry. I forgot to introduce myself. I am Dr. Philip Gage, head of the Medical Science Team, chief of the Proving Grounds medical staff, and... how to put this. I'm the primary caretaker and creator of your body, so to speak. Along with my superior, the Administrator, we have... the best word to use here is "recreated" the body you're currently in. Jun 05 18:59:27 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Dr. Gage]** The Administrator and I worked to ensure that your... transition, would be as soft as possible, and feel like waking up. A rough night, so to speak. Jun 05 19:00:51 <HashiBot> <Nagisa Ashigaru> **[Nagisa]** Now that you mention it, my body does feel a little bit sore.. Huh.. How did I "die", Doctor? Jun 05 19:01:18 <HashiBot> <Nagisa Ashigaru> ((now this feels like the MGSV opening :p)) Jun 05 19:02:22 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Dr. Gage]** Well, that would be up to you to tell me. I'm not certain myself. I do know however why you're here. My boss told me that in exchange for your second chance, so to speak, she wants you to complete an objective. Jun 05 19:02:27 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Dr. Gage]** The Admin is mostly responsible for bringing you here and that I'm just following her orders, she has told me to tell you what your role here is. You may be referred to hereon as the **Contestant**, a title that bears a certain amount of importance here. Your objective is to find four ancient artifacts, said to have been forged by deities - the Cardinal Amulets. Jun 05 19:02:50 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Dr. Gage]** These four objects will, if you find all four of them, allow you the possibility to return home, safe and sound. And I do not know much more, unfortunately, besides the fact that it's up to you to figure out where they are and how to acquire them. Why and how, I do not know either. She simply told me to say this is your primary objective. Jun 05 19:06:28 <HashiBot> <Nagisa Ashigaru> **[Nagisa]** ...Well, that doesn't make any sense. Why get someone who just woke up in a hospital to go on some treasure hunt in a place they don't know? Surely it would make more technical sense to pick someone who has been around here their whole life, and has the necessary skills to find these things. Jun 05 19:08:23 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Dr. Gage]** Oh don't ask me. I'm just the messenger and the medic, here. You'll have to take that up with her once you find these Amulets. And on that note... Jun 05 19:09:10 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Dr. Gage]** The Mazes are a harsh world, and outside of any organized community, you will find this place to be dangerous - you may need to fight for your own defense on a regular basis. On the other side of the room, you will find gear and equipment, as well as clothes fitting for a kappa sourced from the Youkai communities up in the northeast, I felt it would be appropriate. Jun 05 19:11:24 <HashiBot> <Nagisa Ashigaru> **[Nagisa]** Geh... Feels like one of those stupid shows Minari puts on. Well, I suppose I don't have a choice in this matter, being confined to a mat doesn't sound very fun. I'll get going then. Jun 05 19:11:51 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Dr. Gage]** When you're geared up and ready to go, please let me know, I will show you outside. Jun 05 19:14:04 <HashiBot> <Nagisa Ashigaru> *The Kappa nods and rolls her eyes before she tries sitting up. Her body feels a bit stiff and hard, but with some stretching and turning, she finds it to be in perfect working order. Hopping off, she falls forward and bangs her head on the wall, her still needing some stretching. After a minute she climbs up to her feet.* **[Nagisa]** Alright, where's this gear you're giving me? Jun 05 19:14:39 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _It is forming a pile of items in a corner of the room._ Jun 05 19:15:29 <HashiBot> <Nagisa Ashigaru> *She heads over and examines her gear before putting on the equipable items.* Jun 05 19:19:26 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Dr. Gage]** All set? Jun 05 19:19:45 <HashiBot> <Nagisa Ashigaru> **[Nagisa]** Lets get goin' Jun 05 19:21:01 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _The good doctor's pace is brisk and fast, and you don't have the time to see much of the facility you woke up in, besides the room you were in, a few corridors, and a lobby._ Jun 05 19:21:07 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _Once you're outside, Gage's pace doesn't relent any. Soon, you find yourself at the center of the town, a large sort of town plaza called the Social Square Center, with four streets branching out in a plus shaped pattern. There, the inhabitants and visitors come and go, going about on their businesses._ Jun 05 19:22:05 <HashiBot> <Nagisa Ashigaru> **[Nagisa]** So, what's the general gist of this place before I head off? Jun 05 19:22:42 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Dr. Gage]** Well, welcome to Arnett, and more generally welcome to the Mazes. I hope you will be able to succeed in your mission and that you will stay alive. If I may, can I give you a few pieces of advice before I let you go? Jun 05 19:23:36 <HashiBot> <Nagisa Ashigaru> *The Kappa had already started to take a few steps past the good doctor.* **[Nagisa]** Uh, sure, lets hear it. Jun 05 19:24:30 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Dr. Gage]** One, every town is more or less patterned the same way - they all have a social square, a center plaza like this one, and common features such as a hospital, a bank, some form of special facility, and whatnot. If you're ever lost, find the plaza of this town and look for the map - it will tell you where you are and where to go. Jun 05 19:24:41 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Dr. Gage]** Two, you will probably want to find clues about where to go next for your primary objective. The Amulets are, apparently, Angelic in nature, so I would advise you to ask around in town about finding someone who might be knowledgeable enough to help you. Jun 05 19:24:53 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Dr. Gage]** Three and last, the best place for information and the place you want to go to if you need money, is the Hiring Bureau. Think of it as a sort of combination of post office and job finding agency. If you're ever in need of something to do for cash, my advice is to ask there first. Jun 05 19:27:25 <HashiBot> <Nagisa Ashigaru> **[Nagisa]** Alright, I have that. Thanks, Doctor. I'll see you around. Jun 05 19:29:56 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Dr. Gage]** Stay safe out there.. And try not to get into too many fights. Jun 05 19:30:08 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _The good doctor proceeds to turn around and disappear back towards the direction of his facility._ Jun 05 19:30:11 <HashiBot> <Tempest> <**M02: First Town** - Quest complete!> Jun 05 19:30:14 <HashiBot> <Tempest> <**M03: Take the Long Way Home** - Quest started.> Jun 05 19:30:16 <HashiBot> <Tempest> M03: Objectives Jun 05 19:30:20 <HashiBot> <Tempest> 1) Head to Arnett's Hiring Bureau to register yourself as a contractor: the Hiring Bureau is the place to go to find jobs and initiate sidequests, in order to earn money and acquire better gear. Jun 05 19:30:24 <HashiBot> <Tempest> 2) Ask around in Arnett and inquire about the closest Angelic town, to learn more about the Contestant Prophecy and the Cardinal Amulets' supposed whereabouts. Jun 05 19:30:28 <HashiBot> <Tempest> (( And from that point on you have full control and freedom to go where you please. Jun 05 19:31:59 <HashiBot> <Nagisa Ashigaru> *The Kappa decides that it's a nice time for a drink, and looks around the main plaza for a pub* Jun 05 19:34:49 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _The map in the Social Square Center of Arnett says, in big red letters, that "YOU ARE HERE" - pointing at the center of a plus-shaped area. Branching out from the Center are the four streets, North - West - East and South, and the various shops and outlets that can be found there. At the end of these streets are accesses to the various other sections of town._ Jun 05 19:34:54 <HashiBot> <Tempest> Facilities in the Arnett Social Square: SS Center (you are here!) - Bank - Hiring Bureau - Bar (The Bolt Face) - Restaurant (Diner - Bill's Burgers) - Takeout stand - Shooting range - Library Jun 05 19:36:34 <HashiBot> <Nagisa Ashigaru> **[Nagisa]** The Bolt Face huh. *Kappa heads for the bar* Jun 05 19:39:55 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _The Bolt Face is located only three rooms away from the center. It doesn't take long for you to get there. Once on site, you find yourself in the bar hall, where you can see several tables and chairs lined up. You can hear some generic rock as background ambiant music. A clock shows that it's still relatively early in the morning - there isn't a single patron around._ Jun 05 19:40:17 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _To the west is the exit, back to the street. To the east is where the bar counter is located, and presumably the bartender._ Jun 05 19:42:44 <HashiBot> <Nagisa Ashigaru> *Nagisa makes her way for the counter, glancing towards the bartender as she hops up to her seat.* Is this one of those places where they have pretty much anything or is it just specialty stuff? Jun 05 19:43:45 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Barkeep]** It's... just a regular bar, as far as I'm aware. Did you want to order? Jun 05 19:45:06 <HashiBot> <Nagisa Ashigaru> **[Nagisa]** Ah good. I want some rice wine then. Jun 05 19:45:50 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Barkeep]** Rice wine? I have -red- wine, but I'm afraid I don't have red wine. I can pass you the menu, if you'd prefer. Jun 05 19:46:33 <HashiBot> <Nagisa Ashigaru> **[Nagisa]** Wow, and you call this a normal bar? Well, guess I'll just settle for some sort of beer then. Jun 05 19:46:46 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Barkeep]** Blonde, brown, stout? Jun 05 19:47:07 <HashiBot> <Nagisa Ashigaru> **[Nagisa]** Blonde. Jun 05 19:47:25 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Barkeep]** That'll be 15 P$. Jun 05 19:48:38 <HashiBot> <Nagisa Ashigaru> *She has some trouble refinding the money pouch, no doubt looking embarassing to the barkeep, but she finds it. She gives up the 15. She now has 585 parallars* Jun 05 19:50:36 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _Not long after taking the few coins you handed over, the barkeep plops a bottle of blonde ale and opens it for you._ Jun 05 19:50:37 <HashiBot> <Nagisa Ashigaru> **[Nagisa]** So, I'm apparently a Contestant. You have any info on that or what? *She takes a sip from the mug of beer* Jun 05 19:50:39 <HashiBot> <Tempest> [Food] Beverage - Bottle of beer, blonde ale. 40 ntri, 31 wtr per part [5/5 parts] - Alcoholic (Inebriation +0.3 per part) - Addictive (Alcohol) - Weight: 1 Jun 05 19:50:47 <HashiBot> <Nagisa Ashigaru> (oops) Jun 05 19:51:27 <HashiBot> <Tempest> This food item has multiple parts - you can sip one part or as many parts as you have left until empty. Jun 05 19:53:57 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Barkeep]** Hmm, the Contestant? Come to think of it... Yeah, that does ring a bell, just let me try to think about it... Jun 05 19:55:13 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Barkeep]** I think I remember some old religious prophecy thing that the Angelics like to talk about and preach, something about the coming of a Contestant or a Chosen One. I didn't think much of it; just the usual faith stuff they do to get people to donate... You're saying your it? That why you asking? Jun 05 19:58:02 <HashiBot> <Nagisa Ashigaru> **[Nagisa]** I mean, it's not like I didn't just say I'm apparently it. Dunno why they'd need an engineer like me, but whatever. Thanks for the info on that. Apparently I gotta get some amulets or something for somebody named the Administrator. *She takes another swig of the second part* Jun 05 20:00:29 <HashiBot> <Nagisa Ashigaru> **[Nagisa]** Well anyway, how dangerous would you say it is out there? Jun 05 20:02:06 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _You're starting to feel a pleasant buzz._ Jun 05 20:02:55 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _The barkeep looks at you with an amused, almost mocking look. He clearly doesn't seem to believe you at face value, he has that 'She's a bullshitter' look._ Jun 05 20:03:38 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Barkeep]** Right, whatever you say. Maybe you should go ask the shrine maidens in Semitas and see if they recognize you as their Chosen One, but I have like a feeling that won't go down like that. Jun 05 20:04:20 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Barkeep]** How dangerous? I mean, not more dangerous than it usually is. It's the Eastern Zone, nothing much happens, especially not around Arnett. I'm not complaining though, means it's safe for us. Jun 05 20:05:37 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _<M03: Objective 2 is complete.>_ Jun 05 20:07:53 <HashiBot> <Nagisa Ashigaru> *Nagisa chuckles softly as she takes another swig of beer. She likes the light tingly feeling. Seeing this guy look down on here, she rolls her eyes and glares up at him.* | **[Nagisa]** Well I didn't ask for none of this. I'm just the best engineer in the billage and they getting me to go out on this stupid shit. Honestly, why are you looking at me like Minari does. But hey, maybe I jus gotta go out and do some shit, then Jun 05 20:07:53 <HashiBot> you'll believe me. I, Nagisa, the best Kappa Engineer of [REDACTED] declare by it! *She downs the last two parts of the drink and starts to walk out, sticking out her tongue in defiance at the bartender.* Jun 05 20:08:19 <HashiBot> <Nagisa Ashigaru> **[Nagisa]** Gee, just be honest and people act like fuckin' pricks. *she grumbles under her breath* Jun 05 20:09:46 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Barkeep]** _<Amused chuckling, followed by a shake of the head.>_ Man, getting drunk this early in the morning?... Whatever you say, lady, whatever you say. Jun 05 20:09:59 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _The bottle of beer is empty._ Jun 05 20:10:08 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _Where to?_ Jun 05 20:12:03 <HashiBot> <Nagisa Ashigaru> *Thinking back on the Bartender's words, she looks down at herself. Crap. He's right, he can't go to just get confirmation or whatever, they'd never believe her! Eugh.. She decides to get registered at the Hiring Bureau. Then she'll go out. It's cause she's a Kappa she bets.* Jun 05 20:25:58 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _You travel 7 rooms to the Hiring Bureau. The place looks like a large office, where the walls are plastered with recruitment or advertisement posters. It is an otherwise very simple room - with only one large desk, a computer, a board of announcements and classifieds, and the only worker here, the Hirer, sitting at the desk._ Jun 05 20:27:44 <HashiBot> <Nagisa Ashigaru> *Walking up to the desk, she looks over to "The Hirer" and knocks a couple times on the desk* **[Nagisa]** Heeym...so uh..I guess I'm applying to be a contractor or something? Jun 05 20:29:06 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Hirer]** Hello! Oh, so you're a new sign-up? That's great! I'm gonna need your full name, and optionally your phone number and your address. Jun 05 20:31:26 <HashiBot> <Nagisa Ashigaru> **[Nagisa]** Name's Nagisa Ashigaru. That's N-A-G-I-S-A A-S-H-I-G-A-R-U. And uh. I don't really have a phone. But I'm from Genbu. Jun 05 20:33:28 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _Blank stare._ Jun 05 20:33:33 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Hirer]** You're from where? Jun 05 20:34:08 <HashiBot> <Nagisa Ashigaru> **[Nagisa]** Ah uh...I don't really have an address at the moment. Jun 05 20:35:26 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Hirer]** Oh. That's okay! You'll just have to check back in a Hiring Bureau yourself once in a while, then. I'm gonna run a background check, it's not gonna take long. In the meantime, well. I don't think I need to explain since you already seem to know about employers and contractors, but if you do want a little help, I can explain how this all works. Jun 05 20:37:31 <HashiBot> <Nagisa Ashigaru> **[Nagisa]** It sounds fairly self explanatory. I'm an engineer, so getting contracted out is nothing new for me Jun 05 20:38:50 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Hirer]** Good to hear! And -- oh, looks like your background check came back, and... _<Pause.>_ Jun 05 20:39:57 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Hirer]** _<Furrowing her brow, seemingly concerned with something at first, but she dismisses the thought.>_ Well, you're clear and all signed up! Welcome aboard! Unfortunately, since you've practically just been added to the system, there is nothing I can give you for now. You will want to check back later. In the meantime, can I help you with anything else? Jun 05 20:40:09 <HashiBot> <Tempest> <M03: Objective 1 is complete.> Jun 05 20:40:16 <HashiBot> <Tempest> <M03: You gained a new objective.> Jun 05 20:40:17 <HashiBot> <Tempest> 3) Ask the shrine maiden at Semitas about information regarding the Cardinal Amulets. Jun 05 20:42:55 <HashiBot> <Nagisa Ashigaru> **[Nagisa]** Yeah, actually. Do you have a map of the towns, perhaps? I'd like to know where I'm heading before I go. And uh..you ever heard about Cardinal Amulets? If you don't mind me asking Jun 05 20:46:49 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Hirer]** I do, hang on a second. And, yeah, that rings a bell. I think I've heard the shrine maidens in Semitas talk about them once. Something about a prophecy, or something. You should ask them! Jun 05 20:48:25 <HashiBot> <Nagisa Ashigaru> *The Kappa grumbles under her breath, her mind drifting back to that asshole bartender. Shrugging it off, she fakes a smile* **[Nagisa]** I'll have to do that sometime. Thanks for helping me out with all this. I spose you could say I'm new around here ^^; Jun 05 20:49:42 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Hirer]** Don't worry about it. You'll get the hang of things just fine, I'm sure of it. Stay safe out there! Jun 05 20:51:40 <HashiBot> <Nagisa Ashigaru> *The Kappa will now go towards the westernmost gate. She knows that she has some packs of C4 and a handgun. Pulling the handgun out of her backpack, she puts it in her holster, loaded, and heads off into the Mazes Jun 05 20:55:02 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _In order to do so, you must first leave town. It takes 6 rooms to travel to the Town Gate, in the town entrance sector. Go there now?_ Jun 05 20:55:23 <HashiBot> <Nagisa Ashigaru> *Kappa does so* Jun 05 20:59:07 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _You are now in the Town Gate, which is guarded by two male humans carrying weapons and badges - the badges read "TOWN SECURITY", indicating they're local law enforcement. They look bored, you'd even say they look like they got kicked out of bed. They do not seem hostile._ Jun 05 20:59:40 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _To the south is the Gap Corridor, which is the last room until the UA and where you want to go if you want to leave. To the west, toilets. To the north, the Access Corridor, which leads back into town and to the town generator._ Jun 05 21:03:21 <HashiBot> <Nagisa Ashigaru> *Nagisa decides to just go on through to the Gap Corridor. She chimes a quick remark to the huards as she passes by* **[Nagisa]** Groggy morning, hmm? Jun 05 21:03:40 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[TownSec #1]** Yeahhh... G'morning to you too... Jun 05 21:04:46 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _You are now in the Gap Corridor of Arnett. For those coming in, this is the first safe room, the first signs of civilization. For those leaving, like you, it's the last bit of safety before the UA. You see directional signs, which show the towns that are linked to Arnett: **Elkins** to the north, **I-09** to the west, and **Semitas** to the south._ Jun 05 21:07:15 <HashiBot> <Nagisa Ashigaru> **[Nagisa]** West sounds like a good option *She starts to delve into the UA* Jun 05 21:08:35 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _Going towards Intersection 09?_ Jun 05 21:08:38 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _Just making sure._ Jun 05 21:09:09 <HashiBot> <Nagisa Ashigaru> *yes* Jun 05 21:10:57 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _Very well. You will then be traveling into the UA from Arnett to I-09. Which route? // **Fast** (Shorter distance to destination, average amount of encounters and loot) ; **Safe** (Average distance to destination, less encounters, less loot) ; **Deep** (Longer distance to destination, more encounters, more loot)_ Jun 05 21:11:38 <HashiBot> <Nagisa Ashigaru> *Fast to start out* Jun 05 21:16:18 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _Your next destination is **13** rooms away. Now generating the next rooms!..._ Jun 05 21:16:52 <Hebizuka> [Next rooms] Left: Laundry room, abandoned // Front: Kitchen, abandoned // Right: Storage room, abandoned Jun 05 21:24:39 <HashiBot> <Nagisa Ashigaru> *Nagisa caustiously enters the first room?* Jun 05 21:27:42 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _Maybe if you told me which one you want to enter?_ Jun 05 21:28:11 <HashiBot> <Nagisa Ashigaru> (Oh. Sorry, I thought it was all like, in a row ;w;) Jun 05 21:28:33 <HashiBot> <Nagisa Ashigaru> Nagisa cautiously enters the storage room then Jun 05 21:31:21 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _As if on cue, you realize you feel completely sober again._ (Inebriation has fallen to 0.) Jun 05 21:31:48 <HashiBot> <Nagisa Ashigaru> (How convenient) Jun 05 21:33:18 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _The first UA room you enter is an abandoned storage room, which was probably once used, as the name indicates, to store items and supplies. But since it became part of the UA, it became nothing more than a looting target. As luck would have it for you, however, this particular room **was not looted of all of its supplies yet.** One of the old storage crates appear to contain **something of use**._ Jun 05 21:35:09 <HashiBot> <Nagisa Ashigaru> *The Kappa takes note of this. Weird that a room so close to the entrance of town wasn't looted.
