From Mazeworld

Jun 19 19:47:40 <Hebizuka> [Session start!] Jun 19 19:47:44 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _Welcome back to the Mazes, Shizo Chou. You are currently in the Uncivilized Area, on your way from I-09 to I-11. There are only **6** rooms left until your destination. Your current position is in an abandoned classroom, which was already empty when you came in. Only thing to do is to move to the next rooms._ Jun 19 19:47:50 <Hebizuka> [Next rooms] Left: **Outside area - Plains** // Front: Vault room, abandoned // Right: Vault room, abandoned Jun 19 19:48:04 <HashiBot> <Degenerate> ( I'll take the Front room first ) Jun 19 19:50:06 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _An abandoned vault room, once part of a bank, now just a gutted vault with a rusty, stuck open vault door. Disappointingly, it is empty of anything of use or note._ Jun 19 19:50:08 <Hebizuka> [Next rooms] Left: Library wing, **overgrown** // Front: Empty lobby room, abandoned // Right: Corridor Jun 19 19:50:39 <HashiBot> <Degenerate> ( I'll take the Library on the left next ) Jun 19 19:54:17 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _A very old library wing, which once was the computer wing of a library, but which is now so old, all furniture is covered in strange moss and plant matter of some kind. It smells distinctly humid, as well. All of the computers are -beyond- repair, let alone use. You can see three patches of **mushrooms** in the room, as well as what seems to be a more recently abandoned **box of ammunition** on the ground._ Jun 19 19:55:34 <HashiBot> <Degenerate> *Shizo figures she'd be better off looking over the room more carefully. It smells like a jungle in here, but the mushrooms look plentiful ad fresh. She plucks the trio of 'shrooms before inspecting the ammo box.* Jun 19 19:56:24 <Hebizuka> [Mushroom] (?) Orange, Unpleasant smell - Unidentified - Weight: 0.01 - (Quantity: 2) Jun 19 19:56:24 <Hebizuka> [Mushroom] (?) Brown, Pleasant smell - Unidentified - Weight: 0.01 - (Quantity: 10) Jun 19 19:56:24 <Hebizuka> [Mushroom] (?) Yellowish, Unpleasant smell - Unidentified - Weight: 0.01 - (Quantity: 9) Jun 19 19:57:01 <Hebizuka> [Ammunition] Box of .45-70 Government, Standard JSP, 20 rounds - [9/20] - Weight: 0.45 (0.05 per round) Jun 19 19:58:23 <HashiBot> <Degenerate> *Zo stashes all of the mushrooms but passes on the lonely 9 rounds of ammunition.* Jun 19 20:00:03 <HashiBot> <Tempest> [Backpack / Main] 10.22 /60 Jun 19 20:00:22 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _Leaving the abandoned ammunition, you've picked all the mushrooms clean._ Jun 19 20:01:17 <Hebizuka> [Next rooms] Left: Bedroom (bunks), **deserted** // Front: Vault room, **deserted** // Right: Deactivated room Jun 19 20:01:42 <HashiBot> <Degenerate> ( Let's take the Front room ) Jun 19 20:04:22 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _Similar to the last one, except it looks much newer, as though it had been only abandoned recently. There is a **shiny object** in an open deposit box on one of the walls. Possibly valuable loot? On the ground, you see a **medical item** and a piece of **clothing**._ Jun 19 20:05:17 <HashiBot> <Degenerate> *The lapine looks over the vault, still holding some treasures of its own. She inspects all the items in the vault, looking through to see just what other passers-by left behind.* Jun 19 20:05:49 <Hebizuka> [Valuable] Metal - Brass bar, 250g ingot - Value 100 P$ (fixed) - Weight: 0.5 Jun 19 20:05:49 <Hebizuka> [Clothing] Top - Military T-shirt, urban camo (Upper body, Shoulders) - AC: C2 - Blunt-resistant, Sharp-resistant - RagOK - Weight: 3 - (Condition: Ruined) Jun 19 20:05:49 <Hebizuka> [Meds] White powder - Unidentified - Weight: 0.1 Jun 19 20:06:15 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _A minted bar of brass, a REALLY torn t-shirt, and a packet containing white powder of some sort that TOTALLY doesn't look like some kind of drug._ Jun 19 20:07:43 <HashiBot> <Degenerate> *She take all of the items scattered about, figuring the torn-up shirt can serve as rags to tie her wounds down with until she gets some bandages* Jun 19 20:08:36 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _There isn't enough left on the shirt to make a solid rag._ Jun 19 20:08:43 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _It's REALLY badly torn._ Jun 19 20:08:49 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _Still wish to take it?_ Jun 19 20:09:00 <HashiBot> <Degenerate> (In that case, I'll leave it ) Jun 19 20:14:58 <HashiBot> <Tempest> [Backpack / Main] 10.82 /60 Jun 19 20:15:39 <Hebizuka> [Next rooms] Left: Locker room, abandoned // Front: Warehouse room, abandoned // Right: Roadway Jun 19 20:15:53 <HashiBot> <Degenerate> ( Let's hit the roadway on the right ) Jun 19 20:18:11 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _An empty room serving as a roadway. Nothing fancy. There has been a firefight here, judging by the bullet impacts on one of the walls. Strangely, there are no spent casings on the floor, but there is an abandoned **magazine** for a firearm._ Jun 19 20:18:54 <HashiBot> <Degenerate> *Zo thinks she'll pass on an extra magazine and decides to move on.* Jun 19 20:20:03 <Hebizuka> [Next rooms] Left: Storage room, abandoned // Front: Empty club room, abandoned // Right: Break room, abandoned Jun 19 20:20:32 <HashiBot> <Degenerate> ( Let's try the break room ) Jun 19 20:22:35 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _A room that was used for relaxation - with a couch, a widescreen television, a radio, two tables, chairs, a bookshelf, and a closet. It was probably part of some kind of facility in the past. The TV and radio still appear to be powered and can be used. Amazingly enough, the room was not looted; the closet has **stuff** inside, the bookshelves still has **one book** that wasn't stolen, and there's a piece of **clothing** on the Jun 19 20:22:36 <HashiBot> ground._ Jun 19 20:23:40 <HashiBot> <Degenerate> *Shizo figures it'll be a good time for a break. She scoops up the book, turns on the TV, and checks out what the entertainment's like.* Jun 19 20:24:41 <HashiBot> Command sent from Discord by Degenerate: Jun 19 20:24:41 <HashiBot> @whatsonTV Jun 19 20:24:42 <MazeBot> [Teen drama] Freaks and Youkai Jun 19 20:24:59 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _Do you want to watch the current show for a little while, for a chance to relieve a little Stress?_ Jun 19 20:25:46 <HashiBot> <Degenerate> *The bunny shrugs her shoulders, slumping in the couch and kicks her feet up. Looks like she caught this program as it was beginning. Might as well watch it for a while.* Jun 19 20:26:10 <HashiBot> <Tempest> Please roll a 1d20. Jun 19 20:26:24 <HashiBot> Command sent from Discord by Degenerate: Jun 19 20:26:25 <HashiBot> @roll 1d20 Jun 19 20:26:25 <MazeBot> HashiBot: 16 Jun 19 20:30:21 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _32 turns pass, for a total of 2 hours and 40 minutes, during which you caught the show in a three-episode-in-a-row special, plus commercials. The show centers around two competing bands of friends - one human, one youkai. It's entertaining, even if the humor seems dated and the jokes sometimes off-color._ Jun 19 20:30:42 <HashiBot> <Tempest> Stress has decreased by 1.4%, more than you had in the first place. [Stress: 0.0%] Jun 19 20:32:47 <HashiBot> <Degenerate> *Shizo yawns as she finishes the end of the special. Huh. Not bad for a sappy teen drama! It's rather impressive the Mazeworlders have competent writing staff. The rabbit looks around the room, stretching in place as she decides to inspect the book in her hand she totally forgot about. Old media, destined to be used as a coaster by someone else...* Jun 19 20:34:57 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _The items in the room are as follows:_ Jun 19 20:35:04 <Hebizuka> [Key item] A mobile phone. May be used to access the Mazes' telephone network. - Weight: 1 - [Battery: 1 /6] Jun 19 20:35:04 <Hebizuka> [Clothing] Top - Kimono (Upper body, Arms) - AC: C3 - Blunt-resistant - RagOK - Weight: 3 - (Condition: Damaged) Jun 19 20:35:04 <Hebizuka> [Book] A book. Title: [Magazine issue] Survival Illustrated - Takes 1d8*5 turns to read. Stress -0.1% * amount of turns spent reading. Jun 19 20:37:38 <HashiBot> <Degenerate> *Shizou is surprised that there's a phone here. Huh. It looks like it's about to die too. Shame, cause she could use this thing if she had someone's number. She takes the phone and tucks it into her pocket, deciding to leave the rest on the floor.* Jun 19 20:38:39 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _You may attach the phone to your belt as a key item, so that it takes no backpack space. Would you like to do that?_ Jun 19 20:38:49 <HashiBot> <Degenerate> ( Yup! ) Jun 19 20:39:20 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _Mobile phone equipped as key item!_ Jun 19 20:40:18 <HashiBot> <Degenerate> *The lagomorph yawns, stretching out and heading onwards.* Jun 19 20:45:45 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _You pass the door, and find yourself outside of the UA and inside **Intersection 11** from the east, finding yourself in East Street 03. The center of the intersection is just three rooms ahead to the west, where the map - and the list of currently open businesses - can be found._ Jun 19 20:46:36 <HashiBot> <Degenerate> *Shizo does the usual ritual of checking the map to see who's open and what's going on* Jun 19 20:49:26 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _Once at the center of I-11, you can see the map/currently open businesses, as well as a clock which indicates it's already past noon - 12:35 PM, exactly. The intersection map is as follows:_ Jun 19 20:49:31 <Hebizuka> < Intersection 11 - Map > Jun 19 20:49:31 <Hebizuka> BUSINESSES Jun 19 20:49:31 <Hebizuka> Open 24/7: Rest stop - Takeout stand - Public toilets - Public showers Jun 19 20:49:31 <Hebizuka> Currently available services: Restaurant [Trattoria], Library, Engineering workshop Jun 19 20:49:31 <Hebizuka> EXITS Jun 19 20:49:31 <Hebizuka> North: To Garica Block (Outlaw) Jun 19 20:49:31 <Hebizuka> East: To Intersection 09 Jun 19 20:49:31 <Hebizuka> West: To Intersection 14 Jun 19 20:49:31 <Hebizuka> South: To Semitas (Angelic) Jun 19 20:50:08 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _The restaurant and library should be self-explanatory. The engineering workshop is the one-stop shop for anything crafting or gunsmithing related._ Jun 19 20:50:54 <HashiBot> <Degenerate> *Shizo goes over to the Engineering workshop first. Maybe they need brass in exchange for gun mods...?* Jun 19 20:53:10 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _The workshop is just 4 rooms away from here. You make your way there quickly. The workshop is half shop, half working area, full of machines, drawers, tools, and whatnot. The shop owner, an **engineer**, is finishing a sandwich and seems surprised to see a customer - you - coming in._ Jun 19 20:55:26 <HashiBot> <Degenerate> **"Sup."** *She greets rather plainly, looking over the shop as she leans over the counter.* **"I was wondering if you guys were looking to do some work for me. There's a cellphone I need charged and a Beretta 84FS I wanted to get customized. Think you can help me?"** Jun 19 20:56:27 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Engineer]** Oh, yes, of course, certainly. Phone batteries are disposable, I'm going to see if I have some spare ones. As for your Beretta, absolutely, it depends on what you'd like - but let's go over things in order. First, batteries... Lessee... Jun 19 20:58:27 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Engineer]** Ah, I'm terribly sorry, I'm completely out of phone batteries. Jun 19 20:59:42 <HashiBot> <Degenerate> *Figures, the nerds don't have a charger or batteries.* **"Mmm, that's whatever then."** Jun 19 21:00:09 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Engineer]** Now, about that pistol. Did you have anything specific in mind? Jun 19 21:01:08 <HashiBot> <Degenerate> **"A flashlight attachment would be the only thing I would really like. Anything else you guys can offer would be a bonus."** Jun 19 21:02:46 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Engineer]** Hmm, well... I don't think it would be possible to attach a flashlight on the 84. There's no rail on it, and I don't have what it takes to make a completely new frame with a rail. However... I can tweak your pistol to do something else... Jun 19 21:03:24 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Engineer]** For just 100 P$, I can convert it to full-auto. It would become a zippy machine pistol, if you're ever in need of something like that. Would become full-auto only, though, no switch to put it back on semi. Jun 19 21:04:46 <HashiBot> <Degenerate> **"I kinda like the option to toggle it on and off, so that's a no go. Uhhh... scopes?"** *"She asks with a shrug.* Jun 19 21:05:37 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Engineer]** Oh, for weapon accessories, you'd need to see in a gun shop or a weapon shop. I mostly do internal modifications, repairs, cleaning, that sort of thing. Jun 19 21:06:49 <HashiBot> <Degenerate> *Shizou is at her wit's end here.* **"You guys want to buy some brass? Machine yourself some fittings...?"** Jun 19 21:07:16 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Engineer]** Oh? Do you have a brass ingot with you? Yeah, I'll buy that from you, actually! More than happy to. Jun 19 21:07:56 <HashiBot> <Degenerate> *Shizou takes the ingot an lays it on the counter, passing it over to the engineer.* **"Here you go. I'll take cash."** Jun 19 21:08:18 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _The engineer will buy that quarter-kilogram ingot from you for 100 P$. OK?_ Jun 19 21:08:30 <HashiBot> <Degenerate> 👌 Jun 19 21:09:28 <HashiBot> <Tempest> [Money] 100 P$ Jun 19 21:09:35 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _Money pouch: 674 P$ / 2000_ Jun 19 21:10:54 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Engineer]** Awesome! I know a couple of buddies in Ellen Sector who can make amazing things out of brass... We often trade like that and they're happy to have brass to work on. Jun 19 21:11:26 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Engineer]** Just the other day, they were making brand new casings for some kind of ultra-rare, unfindable caliber that has to be specially made. Jun 19 21:12:42 <HashiBot> <Degenerate> *Zo pretends to listen, nodding her head as she counts her cash.* **"Oh man, totally. Like, let me tell ya, custom shells are becoming a thing. Like, a thing-thing, bro..."** Jun 19 21:17:29 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _Suspicious stare from the engineer._ Jun 19 21:17:36 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Engineer]** Um. In any case. Did you need something else? Jun 19 21:19:03 <HashiBot> <Degenerate> **"Nah, I'm good. Peace, nerd."** *Shizo wanders off, going to eat at the next proper town. This place is pretty dead. Onwards to Garcia Block.* Jun 19 21:19:53 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Engineer]** Hey! I'm not a nerd! Jun 19 21:20:46 <HashiBot> <Degenerate> *...He says, hiding his true love for graph porn and math. Neeeeerd.* Jun 19 21:22:10 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _It takes 7 rooms to move to North Street 03. Once there, you make the decision to step out and towards the UA again, this time traveling towards Garica Block, the only possible destination from this point. Which traveling style do you want to adopt? **Fast** / **Safe** / **Deep**_ Jun 19 21:22:40 <HashiBot> <Degenerate> ( Let's keep with Fast ) Jun 19 21:23:02 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _Your next destination is **13 rooms away**. Now generating the next rooms..._ Jun 19 21:23:46 <Hebizuka> [Next rooms] Left: Bedroom (single bed), **dark** // Front: Pantry, abandoned // Right: Warehouse room, **overgrown** Jun 19 21:24:00 <HashiBot> <Degenerate> ( Let's go into the Warehouse on the right ) Jun 19 21:27:47 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _A very, very old warehouse room, where the metal shelves are more moss than metal. Again, that humid scent. No mushroom patches this time, though. There are **clothes** on the ground, though._ Jun 19 21:28:05 <HashiBot> <Degenerate> *Shizo inspects said discarded clothing* Jun 19 21:28:22 <Hebizuka> [Clothing] Bottom - Boxer briefs (Lower body) - AC: C2 - No resistance - RagOK-0.5x - Weight: 1 - (Condition: Good) Jun 19 21:29:39 <HashiBot> <Degenerate> **"Oh fuck, I'm heading towards some** ***nudists*** **and shit... eugh..."** *She passes it up, moving forward and not concerning herself with mossy boxers.* Jun 19 21:31:14 <Hebizuka> [Next rooms] Left: **/!\ Explorable - Villa ruins** // Front: Empty club room, forsaken // Right: Armory room, **deserted** Jun 19 21:32:07 <HashiBot> <Degenerate> ( You bet your sweet ass I'm entering those ruins, son. Let's do it. ) Jun 19 21:32:39 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **This area is very dangerous. Are you sure?** Jun 19 21:33:59 <HashiBot> <Degenerate> ( As a Game Master myself on the weekends, a call-out like that is seldom a provocation. I think I'll take the Armory room. ) Jun 19 21:34:40 <HashiBot> <Tempest> (( I'm being fair and giving you a warning because you're not -yet- what I'd call geared up for those areas. Jun 19 21:36:55 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _You walk into a pristine-looking armory room - which is eerie, considering they are usually prime looting targets. And this room has NOT been looted yet. There are two **firearms** on the racks, a **piece of armor** in one of the lockers, and a piece of **load-bearing equipment** on the floor._ Jun 19 21:37:26 <HashiBot> <Degenerate> *I hone my greed onto the weapons, armor, and equipment whilst my eyes sparkle* Jun 19 21:45:27 <Hebizuka> [Clothing] Body armor - Heavy K armor vest (Upper body) - AC: A3 - Blunt-PROOF, Sharp-resistant, Piercing-resistant - Plate carrier - Weight: 9 - (Condition: Damaged) Jun 19 21:45:27 <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.

However, she tucks her old Flak Jacket into her backpack for safe keeping along with the AK-101 until she get some boolets for it* Jun 19 21:51:57 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _You can equip the AK-101 in Primary 1 instead and just carry it on your back with no impact on backpack weight, if you'd prefer. Would you rather do that?_ Jun 19 21:52:19 <HashiBot> <Degenerate> ( If i doesn't impede access to my pistol? Sure. If not, in the pack it goes ) Jun 19 21:52:39 <HashiBot> <Tempest> (( Not at all. You can have all equipped weapon slots filled out if you want to and have access to all of them during combat. Jun 19 21:53:08 <HashiBot> <Degenerate> ( Sweet. Then I'll put it there and only spare the flak jacket in the pack. ) Jun 19 21:55:24 <HashiBot> <Tempest> (( Okay, just one sec Jun 19 21:58:13 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _AK-101 equipped in Primary 1! You remove your Flak Jacket, wearing the Heavy K armor vest instead and placing your old body armor in your backpack. Although it's a little old and beaten up, the new armor should be much more resistant, particularly to bullets._ Jun 19 21:58:25 <HashiBot> <Tempest> [Backpack / Main] 24.32 /60 Jun 19 21:58:55 <HashiBot> <Degenerate> *Onwards and forwards, she guesses.* Jun 19 21:59:53 <Hebizuka> [Next rooms] Left: Youkai bedroom (danchi), abandoned // Front: Break room, **overgrown** // Right: **UA Bar** Jun 19 22:00:19 <HashiBot> <Degenerate> ( Let's take the break room ) Jun 19 22:02:24 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _All of the powered furniture here is completely out of order. The television and radio are busted, all the furniture here is covered in that same, strange green moss, and there's, once again, two **mushroom patches**. In addition, you spot an **object** that seems out of place in a room as old as this one, left on the floor..._ Jun 19 22:03:20 <HashiBot> <Degenerate> *Shizo initially picks the mushrooms and then takes a peek at the other object in the rom* Jun 19 22:04:07 <Hebizuka> [Key item] A keycard, for unlocking a certain type of electronic lock. A serial number can be read on it: E591 - Weight: 0.01 Jun 19 22:04:07 <Hebizuka> [Mushroom] (?)

Brown, Flour smell - Unidentified - Weight: 0.01 - (Quantity: 6) Jun 19 22:05:33 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _You can add the keycard to a chain on your belt, in order for it to take no weight - as one key item. You can carry virtually as many keycards as you want that way._ Jun 19 22:08:48 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _Would you rather carry the keycard on your belt?_ Jun 19 22:09:05 <HashiBot> <Degenerate> ( Sure! ) Jun 19 22:09:54 <HashiBot> <Tempest> [Backpack / Main] 24.47 /60 Jun 19 22:11:54 <Hebizuka> [Next rooms] Left: Youkai bedroom (washitsu), **dark** // Front: Youkai bedroom (washitsu), **dark** // Right: Empty dojo, abandoned Jun 19 22:12:22 <HashiBot> <Degenerate> ( Let's take the dojo ) Jun 19 22:14:45 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _An empty dojo, which looks only a little less old as the martial arts that were once taught there. Give or take a few hundred years. There is an abandoned **magazine** for a firearm laying on the ground._ Jun 19 22:14:54 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _You have the distinct impression that you just missed a fight._ Jun 19 22:15:13 <HashiBot> <Degenerate> *Eh, nothing interesting. Onwards ho!* Jun 19 22:16:08 <Hebizuka> [Next rooms] Left: Deactivated room // Front: Toilets, abandoned // Right: Roadway Jun 19 22:16:31 <HashiBot> <Degenerate> ( Mmm... Deactivated room ) Jun 19 22:20:41 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _A room that once had furniture, but now, no longer, and simply serves as a road. One has to wonder what kind of goddess of luck has blessed you to find yet another empty room. No enemies in sight._ Jun 19 22:21:16 <Hebizuka> [Next rooms] Left: Roadway // Front: Machine room, forsaken // Right: Locker room, disaffected Jun 19 22:21:36 <HashiBot> <Degenerate> ( Let's take the roadway ) Jun 19 22:22:22 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _It is now 1:10 PM in the Mazes, and you are about to enter your 30th UA room. Congrats on your swift progress!_ Jun 19 22:23:47 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _A roadway. Nothing much to see here. It does seem as though your luck has finally run out, however. There is a large **creature** roaming in this room - it appears to be a **giant beetle**, half as tall as you are, with everything else in according proportion. The creature is on Side 3, and you enter the room on Side 1.
