From Mazeworld

May 07 18:37:03 <Hebizuka> [Session start!] May 07 18:37:06 <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 07 18:37:11 <Hebizuka> _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 07 18:38:19 <HashiBot> <Intrepid Kasha> "Nnngh.... I was sure I was a goner back there. It's nice to be back, Doc." May 07 18:38:31 <HashiBot> <Intrepid Kasha> "Where am I?" May 07 18:38:51 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Medic]** Good morning, miss Matsuyama. 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? May 07 18:42:39 <HashiBot> <Intrepid Kasha> "I'd fallen out of my boat - I think it tipped over for some reason, and went underwater. It was shockingly cold and I felt like I couldn't even move enough to swim back to the surface." May 07 18:44:40 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _You see the good doctor scribble something on a clipboard._ May 07 18:45:29 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Medic]** Interesting. You still have memories from before your... transition. I'd say that means you're okay. Let me explain myself ; you have, effectively, 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 Matsuyama, you are somewhere else entirely - this realm is called the Mazes. May 07 18:46:12 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Medic]** I'm just surprised about something. You are a kasha, a type of youkai. Is that correct? May 07 18:48:40 <HashiBot> <Intrepid Kasha> "Yes, I'm a kasha alright. Huh, so I did die... at least there's no fire and brimstone here that I can see, so I'll take that as a good ending I guess." May 07 18:49:21 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Medic]** Well, not quite so here, no. 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. May 07 18:49:23 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Medic]** 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 07 18:51:09 <HashiBot> <Intrepid Kasha> "Okay, I have no idea how you would have done that, but - thank you! So, if it doesn't sound rude to ask, I hope it doesn't - why did you bring me back?" May 07 18:52:14 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Medic]** Well, my boss told me that in exchange for your second chance, so to speak, she wants you to complete an objective. May 07 18:52:40 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Medic]** 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. May 07 18:52:58 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Medic]** 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. May 07 18:55:32 <HashiBot> <Intrepid Kasha> "Hm! Okay, count me in, I'm game. How do I get started?" May 07 18:57:33 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Medic]** Glad to hear you're enthusiastic about it. There is gear over there for you, and I've had some clothes fitting for a kasha sourced from the Youkai communities up in the northeast, I felt it would be appropriate if you wore what they wear. May 07 18:58:02 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Medic]** 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. May 07 18:58:16 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _It dawns on you that you're not wearing anything under the bed sheets._ May 07 18:58:33 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _As if instinctively, Gage turns around and lets you dress up and gear up if you so choose._ May 07 18:59:54 <HashiBot> <Intrepid Kasha> "OKay- If you'll be so good as to step out for a second - Oh, a cheongsam, and it's such a lovely blue color! I think I'll like the youkai fashion sense here, it's classy. And there's some guns too?" May 07 19:03:19 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _The good doctor nods and gives you a few moments to dress up. Figuring that you're sufficiently fast, he comes back exactly 60 seconds later._ May 07 19:04:14 <HashiBot> <Intrepid Kasha> _stretches, then reaches down for her belt and pack._ May 07 19:04:28 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Dr. Gage]** All geared up? May 07 19:05:18 <HashiBot> <Intrepid Kasha> "I'm getting there. Interesting guns here, and I'm assuming that this is money, right?" May 07 19:06:30 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Dr. Gage]** Ah, yes, that is correct. 300 Parallars. It's not a fortune but it should get you a few things. May 07 19:09:03 <HashiBot> <Intrepid Kasha> _adjusts her pack and rifle sling. "Ah, there we go. So, out into the town it is, then. There is a town, right?"_ May 07 19:10:18 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Dr. Gage]** Yes indeed. You are in the town of Arnett, a small city in the Eastern Zone. If you're ready to leave, I'll escort you to the town center. May 07 19:10:21 <HashiBot> <Tempest> >Ready to go? May 07 19:10:58 <HashiBot> <Intrepid Kasha> "Yeah, I'm ready." May 07 19:14:20 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Dr. Gage]** Very well, please follow me... May 07 19:14:41 <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._ May 07 19:15:03 <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._ May 07 19:15:35 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Dr. Gage]** 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? May 07 19:16:04 <HashiBot> <Intrepid Kasha> "Sure thing! I probably need all the advice I can get." May 07 19:17:20 <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. May 07 19:17:31 <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 in town. May 07 19:17:42 <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 07 19:19:42 <HashiBot> <Intrepid Kasha> "Thanks, I'll remember that. I guess I'll explore the town a little, before it's time to head out for parts unknown." May 07 19:19:57 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Dr. Gage]** Very well. Good luck and stay safe out there, Tabitha. May 07 19:20:00 <HashiBot> <Intrepid Kasha> _walks over and takes a look at the town's map._ May 07 19:20:10 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _The good doctor then turns heels and disappears into the East street, presumably returning to the facility you came from._ May 07 19:20:14 <HashiBot> <Intrepid Kasha> "I'll do my best!" May 07 19:20:18 <HashiBot> <Tempest> <**M02: First Town** - Quest complete!> <**M03: Take the Long Way Home** - Quest started.> May 07 19:21:09 <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 07 19:21:10 <HashiBot> <Intrepid Kasha> _mumbles to herself... "Hiring bureau - and some place to get something to eat would be great too..."_ May 07 19:21:45 <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 07 19:21:53 <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 Other areas that can be accessed from here: Hospital - Residential area - Shop sector (linked to Special facility)- Town entrance (linked to Town Generator) May 07 19:24:33 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _Where to?_ May 07 19:25:06 <HashiBot> <Intrepid Kasha> I'll get a hamburger first, then the hiring center after that. May 07 19:25:20 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _Heading to Bill's Burgers?_ May 07 19:25:37 <HashiBot> <Intrepid Kasha> Yep May 07 19:26:18 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _Bill's Burgers is right around the corner on the North street - it's only 2 rooms away. You travel there..._ May 07 19:28:16 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _You enter inside the diner's main dining room, with several tables and chairs lined up. You spot a maid, waiting at the entrance, presumably working as a waitress. To the east, toilets. To the north, the chef's kitchen. To the south, back into the street._ May 07 19:28:51 <HashiBot> <Intrepid Kasha> "Hey there. Are you open?" May 07 19:29:48 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Maid]** Hi! Yes, we're open 24/7, this is the start of the morning shift. Did you want to order? May 07 19:30:58 <HashiBot> <Intrepid Kasha> "I do. What's on the menu?" May 07 19:31:40 <HashiBot> <Tempest> < Bill's Burgers - Menu > MAIN COURSES > Homemade mac and cheese - 15 P$ for 1 plate / ntri: 185 ntri, 25 wtr > Basket of onion rings - 20 P$ for 8 rings / ntri: 27 ntri, 25 wtr per item (total 216 ntri, 200 wtr) > Grilled chicken salad - 25 P$ for 1 plate / ntri: 264 ntri, 25 wtr > Restaurant-style Cheeseburger (single patty) - 30 P$ for 1 burger / ntri: 313 ntri, 25 wtr > Plate of french fries - 35 P$ for 1 plate / ntri: 378 ntri, 25 wtr > Restaurant-style Cheeseburger (double patty) - 40 P$ for 1 burger / ntri: 417 ntri, 25 wtr > Large buffalo steak - 55 P$ for 1 plate / ntri: 584 ntri, 25 wtr > Chicken filet sandwich with cheese - 65 P$ for 1 sandwich / ntri: 632 ntri, 25 wtr > Entire roasted beef sirloin - 110 P$ for 1 roast / ntri: 1141 ntri, 25 wtr SWEET THINGS > Caramel sundae - 30 P$ for 1 cup / ntri: 304 ntri, 17 wtr > Apple pie - 40 P$ for 1 slice (1/6 pie) / ntri: 260 ntri, 17 wtr (full pie: 1560 ntri, 102 wtr) > Strawberry milkshake - 55 P$ for 1 glass / ntri: 570 ntri, 17 wtr DRINKS > Bottle of mineral water - 2 P$ for 1 bottle > Glass of beer, blonde ale - 4 P$ for 1 bottle > Cup of coffee, black - 5 P$ for 1 cup > Cup of green tea - 5 P$ for 1 cup > Can of lemonade - 10 P$ for 1 can May 07 19:33:14 <HashiBot> <Intrepid Kasha> "I'd like a double cheeseburger and starberry shake, please! Oh, and a bottle of water to take with me for later." May 07 19:33:58 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Maid]** Alright! That will be 97 P$. May 07 19:35:13 <HashiBot> <Intrepid Kasha> _counts out the coins and pays. "Looks like I'll have to start making some more money if I'm going to keep eating like this, but it's a good start to things anyhow."_ May 07 19:35:33 <HashiBot> <Tempest> [Money pouch] 203 P$ remaining May 07 19:36:45 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _The maid disappears to the kitchens, announcing the order to the chef - which you presume is called Bill. A short moment later, your orders are ready and brought to you, as well as your requested drink, which you can take as an inventory item._ May 07 19:36:48 <HashiBot> <Tempest> [Food] Beverage - Bottle of mineral water. 0 ntri, 169 wtr May 07 19:38:08 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Maid]** Here you go, enjoy your meal, and call me up if you need anything else! May 07 19:38:40 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _There is generic driving rock music being played as background ambiance, and so far you are the only patron in the diner. A clock indicates a reason why - it's 8 AM._ May 07 19:39:06 <HashiBot> <Intrepid Kasha> _puts the water bottle in her pack and then chows down on the meal. "Mmm, it's just like the ones at home! Well done!"_ May 07 19:39:56 <HashiBot> <Tempest> [Backpack / Main carrying] 1 /40 May 07 19:42:14 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _The cheeseburger is delicious and filling - just about what you expect._ May 07 19:42:53 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _You feel as though the milkshake that follows has plugged your belly full - you feel satiated and, perhaps amusingly enough, hydrated._ May 07 19:43:01 <HashiBot> <Tempest> [Nutrition] 2245 ntri May 07 19:43:05 <HashiBot> <Tempest> [Hydration] 460 wtr May 07 19:44:46 <HashiBot> <Tempest> (( Yes, I give out stats clearly and on request now - if only to make it less of a pain for upkeep. May 07 19:45:47 <HashiBot> <Tempest> (( Actually make that 2243 and 458 May 07 19:46:49 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _Now that your nutritional needs are sated, what will you do now?_ May 07 19:48:07 <HashiBot> <Intrepid Kasha> To the hiring center it is May 07 19:49:07 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _The maid waves goodbye on your way out. "Please come again!"_ May 07 19:49:34 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _You now travel to the hiring bureau, which is 5 rooms away from your position..._ May 07 19:49:35 <HashiBot> <Intrepid Kasha> "I think I will!" May 07 19:51:01 <HashiBot> <Intrepid Kasha> (brb in a couple minutes) May 07 19:51:07 <HashiBot> <Tempest> (( No problem. May 07 19:51:39 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _You made it to 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 07 19:55:39 <HashiBot> <Intrepid Kasha> "Hello. I'm interested in work, what's available?" May 07 19:56:21 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Hirer]** Oh, hello there! Are you already registered in the database? May 07 19:56:43 <HashiBot> <Intrepid Kasha> "Probably not, I suppose I should register then." May 07 19:57:27 <HashiBot> <Intrepid Kasha> "Huh, is that a typrewiter with a telvision on it? Interesting! How does it work?" (Tabitha hasn't seen a PC before.) May 07 19:57:47 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Hirer]** So you're new, then? Great! I will need your full name, as well as your phone number and current residence if you have any. I'll run that through the database. And no, this is not a television, this is a computer. May 07 20:00:41 <HashiBot> <Intrepid Kasha> "A computer? Hmm. Anyway, I'm Tabitha Matsuyama, and I don't have a phone or residence yet - I'm new here and I'll probably need an income to get those!" May 07 20:02:11 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Hirer]** Tabitha Matsuyama... Hmm. Okay. The computer's running a background search on your name. In the meantme, do you know how this all works or do you need a quick explanation? May 07 20:02:27 <HashiBot> <Intrepid Kasha> "I think a quick explanation would be helpful." May 07 20:04:23 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Hirer]** 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. May 07 20:04:52 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Hirer]** 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 Contractor they want. Since you're new, you're starting at the bottom rung, so you might only get small stuff to do at first. May 07 20:05:54 <HashiBot> <Intrepid Kasha> "Okay, so a Contractor I am then." May 07 20:09:14 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Hirer]** The background check just finished. You're clear for signing up, although it's odd. Option to add you in as an Employer is greyed out. So, yeah, I suppose you're all signed up as a Contractor, now. May 07 20:09:26 <HashiBot> <Tempest> <M03: Objective 1 is complete.> May 07 20:10:06 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Hirer]** Unfortunately, I don't have any jobs available for you at the moment... But perhaps I can help you with something else? If you need directions or help... May 07 20:10:54 <HashiBot> <Intrepid Kasha> "Hmmm.... I'm not sure what else I'd need, maybe I can just check back later? In the meantime, I can go exploring for a while." May 07 20:11:37 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Hirer]** All right, stay safe out there. May 07 20:19:07 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _Where will you go next?_ May 07 20:21:07 <HashiBot> <Intrepid Kasha> Did the map in the center of town mention anything about nearby towns? May 07 20:22:31 <HashiBot> <Tempest> (( No, the map only talks about local facilities. But you can ask the Hirer or other businesses in town for info about neighboring towns. May 07 20:23:24 <HashiBot> <Intrepid Kasha> Well, if I'm still here at the hiring office... "Oh, do you have any information about which other towns are near here?" May 07 20:26:06 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Hirer]** Ah, well, yes of course. You can reach three locations from Arnett. You have **Elkins** to the north of here, but it's pretty dilapidated, not a good place to be these days. Often raided or invaded by creatures. There's **Intersection 09** to the west, or just **I-09**. That is not a town, more like a semi-organized rest stop and hub of shops for travelers to stop at. And there's **Semitas** to the southwest. This is a small Angelic-controlled settlement, with a shrine, religious personnel, and Angelic forces that sometimes patrol there. It's a small town, but it's not too bad, quiet and welcoming of visitors. May 07 20:27:48 <HashiBot> <Intrepid Kasha> Semitas sounds like a good idea. May 07 20:28:30 <HashiBot> <Intrepid Kasha> _recalls that looking for an angel-town was somehting that the good doctor advised._ May 07 20:33:49 <HashiBot> <Tempest> <You've found an Angelic town and a way to get there! M03: Objective 2 complete.> May 07 20:33:55 <HashiBot> <Tempest> <M03: You gained a new objective.> May 07 20:33:59 <HashiBot> <Tempest> 3) Ask the shrine maiden at Semitas about information regarding the Cardinal Amulets. May 07 20:34:24 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Hirer]** Alright then. You look well equipped to take on the UA, from the looks of it. Stay safe out there, alright? May 07 20:38:29 <HashiBot> <Intrepid Kasha> "I'll try!" May 07 20:39:22 <HashiBot> <Intrepid Kasha> _will head toward the.... Not quite to the twon exit, I'll go check the hospital to see if they have a first aid kit or something before I leave for good._ May 07 20:44:00 <HashiBot> <Tempest> (( Just so you don't waste time and nutrition, they do - but it'll cost 400 P$ a piece. May 07 20:44:08 <HashiBot> <Tempest> (( I may as well tell you now. May 07 20:53:16 <HashiBot> <Intrepid Kasha> Mmmkay. May 07 20:53:27 <HashiBot> <Intrepid Kasha> In that case - I guess I'll head out into the world! May 07 20:55:13 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _You travel to the Town Entrance, and to the Gate, six rooms away. Once there, you find two Town Security officers, carrying weapons and badges indicating their occupation. They seem bored, and nothing points out they intend to stop you._ May 07 20:57:27 <HashiBot> <Intrepid Kasha> "Good afternoon to ya. Has there been much trouble out there?" May 07 21:02:31 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[TownSec #1]** Nah, not for a long time. Occasionally there's a ballsy raider or two, but these days it's pretty quiet. May 07 21:04:06 <HashiBot> <Intrepid Kasha> "Noted. I'll be careful out there anyhow." May 07 21:04:36 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[TownSec #1]** Heading out? Stay safe out there. May 07 21:05:28 <HashiBot> <Intrepid Kasha> _waves, and as she walks out through the entrance she does a quick function check on her weapons._ May 07 21:18:09 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _You are now in the Gap corridor, the last room until the UA. Before you are many doors, as well as signs with directions to the towns you can reach from Arnett._ May 07 21:18:33 <HashiBot> <Intrepid Kasha> I suppose I'd better check those signs! May 07 21:18:42 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _All of your weapons are loaded with a full magazine. AR-18 is at 19+1, UMP-9 is at 29+1, and M9 at 14+1._ May 07 21:19:00 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _The signs describe the directions the Hirer told you about: **Elkins**, **I-09** and **Semitas**._ May 07 21:19:41 <HashiBot> <Intrepid Kasha> _heads toward Semitas!_ May 07 21:20:18 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _Now heading into the UA! Please wait..._ May 07 21:20:44 <HashiBot> <Tempest> You've selected Semitas as your destination. May 07 21:20:55 <HashiBot> <Tempest> Please select a traveling style: **Fast** / **Safe** / **Deep** May 07 21:21:04 <HashiBot> <Intrepid Kasha> Fast. May 07 21:25:02 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _You will reach Semitas in **29 rooms**._ May 07 21:26:25 <Hebizuka> [Next rooms] Left: Office room, **dark** // Front: Empty dojo, overgrown // Right: Former room May 07 21:30:47 <HashiBot> <Intrepid Kasha> Front door. May 07 21:33:06 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _And so, you venture forwards into the UA for the first time..._ May 07 21:35:42 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _An empty dojo - at least, that's what it barely looks like anymore.
