From Mazeworld

May 05 15:29:37 <Hebizuka> [Session start] May 05 15:29:51 <Hebizuka> _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._ May 05 15:30:01 <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._ May 05 15:33:10 <HashiBot> <Arcy> "Lemme guess.." the female known as Jessica Definta groaned, closing her eyes slightly and laying her head back with a groan. "Either I fell into the ocean, and went splat on impact, or I tripped and hit my head," Definta huffed out in annoyance, slowly opening her eyes to look over the older man for a few moments. "And you, are the angel sent down from the heavens to judge whether I go upstairs or downstairs." May 05 15:34:03 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Medic]** Good morning, Miss Definta. It's a pleasure to see you are among the living again. Much as I appreciate the compliment, I am no angel, and I don't think Heaven Ltd. would appreciate if I pretended being one. 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? May 05 15:37:04 <HashiBot> <Arcy> "Former oil rig. Seychelles," she responded coolly, humming to herself as she thought. "So I most likely fell, if that's what you're asking about, cause of death and stuff. And if you're not from upstairs, that means I must be in purgatory, no?" May 05 15:39:41 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Medic]** Well, you are halfway correct. You have indeed died, my question was to make sure you understood what happened to you. I'm afraid I have no idea what happened to you in the world you came from. 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 Definta, you are somewhere else entirely - this realm is called the Mazes. May 05 15:41:28 <HashiBot> <Arcy> "..Go on." was all the gal said, slowly shifting to a more suitable position to have a conversation. Y'know, that position where one is sitting up, and facing the person they're conversing to and/or with? "You have my.. Attention. Whether that's good or bad is another question entirely, Sir." May 05 15:43:27 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Medic]** But... Oh. My bad. I forgot to introduce myself with all of this. 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. May 05 15:45:08 <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. May 05 15:46:15 <HashiBot> <Arcy> "So for all intents and purposes, this body isn't exactly mine, but the mind and consciousness up here.." she paused to tap herself on the temple, "Would be immensely familiar because it is. Akin to.. Copy pasting me into a machine, yet a biological one?" She nodded her head slowly. "Right. Well, clearly you brought me back for some reason. And, while I appreciate bringing me back from death, mind explaining?" May 05 15:47:45 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Dr. Gage]** If that helps you understand it better, I suppose it can be explained that way, yes. And yes; there is a reason. 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, May 05 15:47:46 <HashiBot> said to have been forged by deities - the Cardinal Amulets. May 05 15:48:06 <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. May 05 15:49:01 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Dr. Gage]** She did not give me much more to explain, 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. May 05 15:50:56 <HashiBot> <Arcy> "Find the MacGuffins, and I get a second shot at life. Oh man that's gonna freak everyone out back home.." she said quietly, gently biting on the tip of her left index finger. "I'm guessing that it's not going to be a cake walk. Death is no doubt a possibility, Doc?" May 05 15:51:18 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Dr. Gage]** Unfortunately. This is why the gear over there is for you. May 05 15:51:45 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _He points to a pile of equipment - clothing, armor, weapons and other things. You realize that under the bed sheets of that hospital bedroom, you are, in fact, naked._ May 05 15:55:09 <HashiBot> <Arcy> Not that Jess particularly cared. But, for the sake of "common" decency, she should probably get some clothes on. "Equipment. Perfect, exactly what I needed," the gal grinned a shit eating grin at the Doc. "I feel.. naked, without it~" May 05 15:56:29 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _The good doctor feigns decency and turns around to let you dress up and gear up. You have the feeling he doesn't really... care, though._ May 05 15:59:21 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Dr. Gage]** You are in the town of Arnett, a quiet little town of the Eastern Zone, but you may be forced to fight eventually, if only to defend yourself. Once you leave this town, which you will probably want to do to figure out how to complete your mission, you will be in what is known as the **Uncivilized Area**, or UA for short. It is pretty much wild and lawless outside of any sort of town or organized community. May 05 15:59:55 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Dr. Gage]** Once you're all geared up, please let me know when you're ready to leave, I'll take you outside and to the town center. From there, we'll part ways. May 05 16:00:24 <HashiBot> <Arcy> And so on went that equipment. Vest, backpack, clothes, belt, all of it. Fist wraps on, and rifle slung down by her hip. Just as she remember. Once she was ready, she'd nod her head, listening to the Doc explain the land. "Gotcha. Alright, well I don't see any point delaying." May 05 16:01:18 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Dr. Gage]** Very well, please follow me. May 05 16:02:47 <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. Gage doesn't relent when you're outside - you quickly notice you are in some sort of city, but a glance upwards is enough to notice there is no sky or natural lights of any sort - this seems to be an all-interior town, as if it was underground, but without May 05 16:02:48 <HashiBot> the sensation of it being underground._ May 05 16:03:37 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _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._ May 05 16:04:25 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Dr. Gage]** This is where I must leave you, but before you go, three pieces of advice for you. 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. May 05 16:04:57 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Dr. Gage]** Two, you will probably want to find clues about where to go next for your primary objective. I advise you to ask around. May 05 16:05:44 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Dr. Gage]** Three, 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. May 05 16:06:08 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Dr. Gage]** And with this, I must go. May 05 16:06:41 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _He extends a hand for you to shake. You can't help but think he's concerned, at the very least, about you, as if he was worried about sending you out._ May 05 16:07:50 <HashiBot> <Arcy> The kitted out chick firmly shook the Doc's hand. Staring him straight in the eyes as she smiled. "Don't worry Doc, you do.. Medical stuff, I'll be fine out in the.." she coughed. "Wide open world." May 05 16:08:05 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Dr. Gage]** Stay safe out there. May 05 16:08:29 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _The good doctor then turns heels and disappears into the East street, presumably returning to the facility you came from._ May 05 16:08:38 <HashiBot> <Tempest> <**M02: First Town** - Quest complete!> May 05 16:08:43 <HashiBot> <Tempest> <**M03: Take the Long Way Home** - Quest started.> May 05 16:09:52 <HashiBot> <Tempest> M03 - Objectives: 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. 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. May 05 16:10:23 <HashiBot> <Tempest> (( And from that point on, you have full control about where you want to go! Objectives will be reminded from time to time, or if you ask me about it, but you're pretty much free to do whatever you like, now. May 05 16:10:37 <HashiBot> <Tempest> (( Welcome back to the Mazes, Arcy. ♥ May 05 16:10:49 <HashiBot> <Arcy> (( Dankeschon~ May 05 16:11:21 <HashiBot> <Arcy> First things first. Map time. Find the hiring bureau, make herself known as a contracter (and thus get back into mercenary work.) NOW! Where's the map, where's the map, where's the maaaaap? May 05 16:11:56 <HashiBot> <Tempest> The map is right where you are. You can spot it with the big fat red letter that say "YOU ARE HERE." May 05 16:12:18 <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._ May 05 16:12:20 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _As described by Gage, every town is patterned the same - when looking at a town map, you will be given a list of accessible facilities in this town._ May 05 16:12:33 <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 May 05 16:12:34 <HashiBot> <Tempest> Other areas that can be accessed from here: Hospital - Residential area - Shop sector (linked to Special facility)- Town entrance (linked to Town Generator) May 05 16:13:11 <HashiBot> <Arcy> "Smart." she muttered, inspecting the map closer. And opting for the best choice. Hiring Bureau time! May 05 16:13:36 <HashiBot> <Tempest> > The Hiring Bureau is three rooms away. Fast traveling... May 05 16:16:16 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _After a quick walk into the South street and a turn left, you find yourself in the Hiring Bureau, which 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._ May 05 16:17:16 <HashiBot> <Arcy> "Time to get hired.." Deffy muttered, approaching the desk quietly, and greeting the so called "Hirer" friendly..ly. "Sup." May 05 16:17:32 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Hirer]** Hi, welcome to the Arnett Hiring Bureau! What can I do for you? May 05 16:18:07 <HashiBot> <Arcy> "Well, I'm a.." she paused, thinking. "A Contestant, I believe. And apparently I have to register as a contracter, or something of the sort?" Straight to the point, of course. May 05 16:19:28 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _The hirer - who seems to be a female in her 40s, looks at you silently with an odd look, before responding._ May 05 16:20:38 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Hirer]** So you're new? Well, that's quite alright. It's pretty easy to sign up, just give me your full name, and if you have any, your phone number and your current residence. I'll be checking you in the database, and if it works out, you'll be added to the pool of recruitable contractors. May 05 16:21:16 <HashiBot> <Arcy> "Right. Well, my name is Jessica Definta, don't have a phone, and I don't have a place to stay, so strike those off," she chuckled, slowly shaking her head. May 05 16:21:41 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Hirer]** Okay. Lemme enter you in... Alright, it's running a quick background check on your name. In the meantime, do you know how this works? May 05 16:22:48 <HashiBot> <Arcy> "No clue. I technically just woke up from death, in a way. Doctor Gage at the hospital-esque building gave me some advice, so I came here, following it." May 05 16:23:04 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _Another odd glare._ May 05 16:23:11 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _She looks at you as if you're insane._ May 05 16:24:46 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Hirer]** Right, well... The way this works, is that we register people in two broad categories, Employers and Contractors. The former sign up to offer jobs and things to do for any Contractor available, and Contractors sign up to be offered jobs made available by the first category. We also rank people by veterancy, so that Employers who wish to get more or less experienced people, may only offer that job to the type of May 05 16:24:46 <HashiBot> Contractor they want. May 05 16:26:02 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Hirer]** Since you're new, you're at the bottom rung. And... Oh, hey, the check is finished. You are cleared and you're now in the Contractor pool as a newbie. Unfortunately, I don't have any jobs to assign you yet, you'll have to come back later. Did you need anything else? May 05 16:26:50 <HashiBot> <Tempest> <M03: Objective 1 is complete.> May 05 16:27:12 <HashiBot> <Arcy> Was Jessica insane? Well, if this was some dream of hers, she most definitely would have to be. But regardless of her sanity state, she simply nodded along to the Hirer's explanations. Before shaking her head and shrugging her shoulders. "Nada. Just came in to tick that off my bucket list. Thanks anyway." May 05 16:27:39 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Hirer]** Hey, hang on a moment. Can I ask you something? May 05 16:27:56 <HashiBot> <Arcy> "You just did." she quickly retorted, a shit eating grin once more on her face. May 05 16:28:34 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Hirer]** You said you're new in town, and you have no phone and no residence... When I ran your check, you were okayed to become a Contractor, but the option to add you as an Employer was greyed out. There was an error message. May I ask you how you heard about that Contestant thing? May 05 16:29:28 <HashiBot> <Arcy> "Because I woke up in the hospital, was told that I had died, that my body was recreated, and was told by the presiding Doctor that I was what was known as a Contestant. Four amulets, blah blah blah." May 05 16:30:03 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _She frowns, but she continues. It's like she's trying to figure something out._ May 05 16:30:05 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Hirer]** Huh. Do you know exactly who or what a Contestant is besides what you were told? May 05 16:31:20 <HashiBot> <Arcy> "Exactly? Fuck if I know. Give me a crayon, and a sheet of paper, and I might be able to work something out," she snarkily replied. May 05 16:33:03 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Hirer]** Right, so you were told you are the Contestant but you have no _real_ idea of what the term means. Interesting. Tell you what, I can't really explain it very well, but I think I know someone who might. May 05 16:34:10 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Hirer]** If that is ever the actual truth and you're not another one of those loons I get once a month, pretending they are the chosen one and demanding free benefits... You should go to the town of Semitas. It's a town controlled by the Angelic faction, Heaven Ltd. They have a shrine and shrine maidens there, they should be able to tell you what you need to know. Do you know how to -- ... Right, you probably don't. May 05 16:34:25 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Hirer]** Lemme rephrase. Do you want directions on how to go to Semitas? May 05 16:35:17 <HashiBot> <Arcy> "Well, yeah. I don't have a portable map, now do I?" she snorted, rolling her eyes. May 05 16:37:51 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Hirer]** I really need to sell maps. _<sigh!>_ Anyway. To go to Semitas, head to the Town Entrance sector, go past the TownSec officers at the gate, and head over to the exit. In the last room until the UA, you should find directional signs. Semitas is to the southwest of here. The other directions you can go from Arnett are towards the town of Elkins, and towards Intersection 09, or I-09 for short. May 05 16:38:52 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Hirer]** Elkins is run-down, dilapidated, and really not a good place to be these days. It's frequently overrun by marauders and wild animals, I don't think there's anyone left defending the town, so go there at your own risk. I-09 is an intersection ; it's not really a town, think of it as more of a semi-organized rest stop with shops for travelers. It's relatively safe. May 05 16:40:28 <HashiBot> <Tempest> (( You're forbidden from making an Origin Point joke. May 05 16:40:33 <HashiBot> <Tempest> (( I just realized what I typed. May 05 16:40:37 <HashiBot> <Arcy> (( H-Huh? May 05 16:40:44 <HashiBot> <Tempest> (( "I really need to sell maps" May 05 16:40:48 <HashiBot> <Arcy> (( HAH May 05 16:41:24 <HashiBot> <Arcy> "Hire some cartographer pigeons or something," she snorted. "But anyway, head out the town, head south west, watch out for bandits, same old same old?" May 05 16:41:49 <HashiBot> <Tempest> (( GOD DAMMIT May 05 16:42:06 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Hirer]** I suppose so. Did you need anything else? May 05 16:42:28 <HashiBot> <Arcy> "Nope. I should be able to figure the rest out. Thanks, though." May 05 16:43:05 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Hirer]** Stay safe out there. May 05 16:43:11 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _Where do you want to go next?_ May 05 16:43:57 <HashiBot> <Arcy> Back to the map. Time to shop, hopefully. May 05 16:44:27 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _> You travel the three rooms back to the SS Center._ May 05 16:45:17 <HashiBot> <Arcy> Time to inspect the map. Specifically, for places that would hopefully sell some form of medical supplies. That'd be important. Jess was smart! May 05 16:46:15 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _The map indicates the location of the town hospital, all the way past the end of the North street. This is 6 rooms away. Do you wish to go there? _ May 05 16:46:28 <HashiBot> <Arcy> Yessiree. May 05 16:49:03 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _After a little more walking northwards, you find yourself inside of Arnett Hospital. You are now in the hospital lobby. You can spot a desk, a computer, a nurse doing lobby duty, and a line of chairs. Behind you, to the south, is the exit which leads back to the Social Square. To the north is the Meds shop._ May 05 16:49:25 <HashiBot> <Arcy> Over to the Meds Shop she went, 300.. weird money things ready to spend. May 05 16:49:42 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _300 Parallars._ :paracoin: May 05 16:49:57 <HashiBot> <Arcy> ***Weird money things.*** May 05 16:51:11 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _You're now in Arnett's meds shop. There, you see a shop counter, a computer, a nurse doing shop duty, and various flyers and posters speaking about medical emergencies, various drugs and substances, and their merits - and dangers. To the north is the medic room. To the east, the meds shop's storage room, which is locked. To the south, the entrance lobby._ May 05 16:51:39 <HashiBot> <Arcy> Well, presumably the best way to buy meds was to go to the counter, so up she bounded! May 05 16:51:52 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Shop nurse]** Can I help you? May 05 16:52:47 <HashiBot> <Arcy> "Well, I'm about to head out to Semitas, and I have a feeling in my bones that _something_ is gonna happen when I go. So, I was wondering, bandages, first aid kits, stuff like that, would it be possible to purchase?" May 05 16:53:20 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Shop nurse]** Sure, let me see what I have in stock. Are you looking for something in particular or did you want to browse my inventory? May 05 16:54:23 <HashiBot> <Arcy> "Might actually be best to uhh.. Browse the inventory?" Jess answered uncertainly, right. May 05 16:54:29 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Shop nurse]** Hang on a moment then. May 05 16:57:23 <HashiBot> <Tempest> < **Hospital shop - Inventory for sale** > First Aid Kit - 1 Steroids (anabolic) - 6 Paracetamol - 3 Heroin - 4 Emergency tourniquet - 6 Ecstasy - 6 Hydroxocobalamin - 5 Blood Transfusion Kit (empty) - 6 LifeVest wearable defibrillator (battery not included) - 4 May 05 16:59:41 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _You can ask the shop nurse for details on a particular item._ May 05 17:00:33 <HashiBot> <Arcy> "How much for the FAK?" she asked, tapping her chin. That'd be most useful, right..? May 05 17:01:49 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _The First Aid Kit contains various kinds of medical equipment - the FAK itself can be used to induce Light Limb Healing on a damaged limb. It also contains (at no cost to inventory) two Individual Bandages (for patching up wounds) and two tablets of Paracetamol (painkillers). One FAK costs **400 P$**._ May 05 17:03:00 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _FAKs can be kept even if the limb healing tools are depleted, if they still contain the extra meds. FAKs may be refilled with extra meds if they have been removed from the FAK as well. But if all contents of the FAK - healing tools and extra meds - are depleted, it is tossed away and removed from the inventory._ May 05 17:04:41 <HashiBot> <Arcy> Welp, that was out of her budget, tourniquet, maybe? May 05 17:05:35 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _The Emergency Tourniquet has one purpose only: stopping you from bleeding if you are in the very unfortunate situation of missing a limb entirely. Of course, it supposes you have at least one hand to apply it to yourself. One Emergency Tourniquest is **300 P$**._ May 05 17:06:00 <HashiBot> <Arcy> Better than nothing, time to buy one! May 05 17:06:15 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _Are you certain? You will spend all of your money._ May 05 17:06:58 <HashiBot> <Arcy> Yes. May 05 17:07:28 <HashiBot> <Tempest> < Money in Backpack/Money pouch: 0 P$ > May 05 17:07:33 <HashiBot> <Tempest> < You've purchased the following items: > May 05 17:07:39 <HashiBot> <Tempest> [Meds] Emergency tourniquet - Stops permanent bleeding on a severed arm, hand, leg, or foot. - Weight: 1 May 05 17:09:14 <HashiBot> <Arcy> And into the backpack that went, just in case. May 05 17:09:34 <HashiBot> <Tempest> [Backpack / Main capacity] 1 /20 May 05 17:09:55 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Shop nurse]** Thank you for shopping! Hope you never need it, though... Did you need anything else? May 05 17:10:38 <HashiBot> <Arcy> "That'd be all, dear, thanks." May 05 17:10:52 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Shop nurse]** Stay safe out there! May 05 17:10:58 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _Where to next?_ May 05 17:11:29 <HashiBot> <Arcy> Welp. Only one palce to really go. And that's to start progress to Semitas! May 05 17:11:48 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _Fast travel to the Town Gate?_ May 05 17:11:55 <HashiBot> <Arcy> Yes' May 05 17:12:47 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _You travel 14 rooms, entirely southwards... until you reach the Town Gate._ May 05 17:14:13 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _There, you see two citizens with weapons and badges - the badges indicate they're part of Town Security, or TownSec, Arnett's local law enforcement. They seem bored and nothing indicates they intend to stop you. To the west, toilets. To the south, the Gap room and the final room belonging to Arnett before the UA.

May 05 18:08:22 <HashiBot> <Tempest> All steps of a martial art technique must get succesful rolls in order to be successfully completed - if there is a miss at any point, the technique isn't completed, and unless a given step serves to give damage on its own (like a singular punch in a series of multiple strikes, for example), it will not cause damage if failed.
