From Mazeworld

Aug 11 17:51:26 <Hebizuka> [Session start!] Aug 11 17:53:10 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _Welcome back to the Mazes, Reina Miyako-Knight. You are currently in Joliet Sector, in the Mall - specifically in the workshop. You just finished a phone call with Maurice, and promised yourself you'd be doing a little shopping. Current date and time: Firesday, Quartema 7, Year 704. It is currently 8:25 AM. You are tired, and you currently have 2 active quests: M04 (The Power to Begin Again) and S1-2 (Come a Huntin' Man)._ Aug 11 17:53:45 <HashiBot> <Reina> I don't suppose there's a handy sign with all the shops listed on it? Aug 11 17:55:04 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _The shops in the Joliet Sector Mall are as follows: Weapon shop, Gun shop, Delicatessen, Clothing shop, Engineering workshop (**you are here!**), Restaurant [Trattoria]._ Aug 11 17:55:16 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _You can also always go back to the social square center to see the map again._ Aug 11 17:56:56 <HashiBot> <Reina> How hungry and thirsty am I, again? Aug 11 17:57:21 <HashiBot> <Tempest> [Nutrition: 1945 ntri - OK] [Hydration: 607 wtr - OK] Aug 11 17:57:54 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _With a reminder that your tiredness (Fatigue: 47.1% - Tired) is accelerating your thirst and hunger (sadly, not for sex). With that said, you should be good to go for a bit._ Aug 11 17:59:28 <HashiBot> <Reina> Pssssh, as if I'm ever `not` hungry for sex. Let's go to the bar - there as to be some sort of bar around here. Aug 11 17:59:58 <HashiBot> <Reina> I'll pick someone up, ask them a few things about those worthless amulets, and bring 'em back to the hotel. Aug 11 18:01:54 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _Back in the social square, you will find two bars - the Joliet Ales and Drinks, preferred by the locals and particularly the Guards, and the Flying Noodle Café, which has a more out-there atmosphere and is favored by traders, adventurers, people passing through, and the like. Where to?_ Aug 11 18:02:48 <HashiBot> <Reina> I'll hit up the Flying Noodle, first. More likely to - heh - catch a bite. Aug 11 18:05:46 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _15 rooms later, and you find yourself at the Flying Noodle Café, with logos of the titular flying noodle monster - the bar's mascot - all over the walls of the establishment. Some rather happy-sounding dance music can be heard playing in the speakers, albeit at a reduced volume. There is barely anyone at this time of the day. You find yourself in the hall. To the east is the bar room with the counter. To the west is back Aug 11 18:05:46 <HashiBot> outside._ Aug 11 18:08:16 <HashiBot> <Reina> Into the bar to get my drink on. Aug 11 18:09:03 <HashiBot> <Reina> Ah, but before I go - if it's barely anyone, that does mean there's a few souls here, right? What do they look like? Aug 11 18:09:12 <HashiBot> <Reina> (Or are they at te counter) Aug 11 18:09:49 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _At the bar counter there, the bartender can be found, faithfully waiting for patrons. The very few people that are in the room are all here - one at the counter and one huddled up, at one of the seats in the back. They both look like locals... and already drunk out of their asses._ Aug 11 18:14:33 <HashiBot> <Reina> Should have just gone to the hotel first. Man, am I bad at making choices. Aug 11 18:14:46 <HashiBot> <Reina> You know what? Screw it. That's /exactly/ what I'm going to do. Aug 11 18:14:54 <HashiBot> <Reina> To the hotel, I need a fucking bed. Aug 11 18:16:44 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _The barkeep eyeballs you, wondering why you didn't say a word or even order a drink. He shakes his head and shrugs._ Aug 11 18:17:51 <HashiBot> <Reina> "I'll be back in about 12 hours." I say as I wave him off. Aug 11 18:17:55 <HashiBot> <Reina> To the hotel. Aug 11 18:18:09 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Barkeep]** Whatever you say. Stay safe out there, huh? Aug 11 18:19:34 <HashiBot> <Reina> "With these puppies? Oh honey, I'll be juuuust fine." Aug 11 18:20:21 <HashiBot> <Reina> To the hotel, to deal with the accelerated hunger and thirst~ Aug 11 18:20:57 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _8 rooms later, after following the signs pointing to the location of the Blue Wing Inn, you find yourself at the entrance lobby of said hotel._ Aug 11 18:21:57 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _The receptionist acknowledges your presence from behind his desk._ Aug 11 18:22:24 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Receptionist]** Good morning, madam. Can I help you today? Aug 11 18:24:07 <HashiBot> <Reina> "Ah, yes - I'm new to the area, and I wanted to inquire about your rates and services? I'm hoping to rent a room for the day, or maybe two." Aug 11 18:25:32 <HashiBot> <Reina> Reina still seems a little hesitant at first, but as she starts talking it's easy to slip back into her normal routine - a sway of her wide, sturdy hips as she steps towards the counter, arcing her back to force her massive mounds to jut out just a bit more - it's comforting to act like this, to be forward and flamboyant. Aug 11 18:26:11 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Receptionist]** Our rates are simple - 100 P$ per 24 hours of room usage. Whether or not you actually use the room is not my problem. You can pay for as many days in advances as you wish, and you can return and use the room as much as you like, provided you still have enough time. Just don't try to cheese the last night and oversleep - if your time is running out, I will come knocking. Are we clear? Aug 11 18:27:14 <HashiBot> <Reina> "That won't be a problem. Can I bring a friend over? Or multiple? You know how it goes." Aug 11 18:28:00 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Receptionist]** Yes, that is fine. Just don't bring the whole town or the entire police station staff over. Or if you're gonna do that, not all at once. Believe me, I've had people try to do that before. Aug 11 18:29:46 <HashiBot> <Reina> "The /entire/ police station staff? Do they like to party, then?" Aug 11 18:30:26 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Receptionist]** Key word is "try". That didn't work out all that well. They did come out after the rape allegations started spreading in town... But ahem. Look at me talk. Anyway. Do you want a room? Aug 11 18:32:36 <HashiBot> <Reina> "Oooh, I like men who are forceful. If that's the case - here you are, 100 for 24 hours. And I can just pay another 100 when you come knocking, I hope?" Aug 11 18:32:56 <HashiBot> <Reina> Reina takes it out of her bag, casually revealing the sheer amount of cash she's sporting in the process. Aug 11 18:33:03 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Receptionist]** As long as you're paying. Aug 11 18:33:21 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _He remains indifferent to your flaunted wealth, takes 100 P$ from your hands, and hesitates over the available keys for a moment..._ Aug 11 18:35:15 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Receptionist]** ...Right, that bastard still has the 204... Well, here. Room 203. Door to the right, then follow the numbers until you reach 203. That's your room. We have a large, clean, queen-size bed, a wide-screen television, a radio, a small selection of books, a fully functional shower and toilets, and sound-proof walls. Enjoy your stay. Aug 11 18:36:37 <HashiBot> <Reina> "Uhm - the 204? Is there something about my neighbor I should be worried about?" Aug 11 18:37:05 <HashiBot> <Reina> Reina bats her eyelashes at the man for good measure, even if he is remaining /impossibly/ resistant to her charms. Aug 11 18:37:22 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Receptionist]** Oh, no, don't worry about it. He's a very good client... Too good of a client actually. He paid for a whole month in advance, and him not freeing up the room means I can't have it available for anyone else. But hell, I said so myself, "As long as you're paying". Aug 11 18:38:05 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Receptionist]** He shouldn't cause you any trouble, because I rarely ever _see_ him in the first place. He occasionally comes back in the middle of the night to crash, but he's right back out. Think he's some kinda super adventurer or something. Aug 11 18:38:51 <HashiBot> <Reina> "Oooh, he sounds dreamy. I don't suppose you can tell me what time he usually comes back, exactly? Or a name?" Aug 11 18:39:45 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Receptionist]** And deprive you of the pleasure of finding that out on your own? Come on, honeybuns. I'm not _that_ unprofessional. But if you really want to meet him, I hear he goes to the Flying Noodle for a drink before he goes out doing his thing again. Aug 11 18:40:01 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Receptionist]** You didn't hear that from me, okay? _<Smile.>_ Aug 11 18:40:53 <HashiBot> <Reina> "Oh, you /charmer./ If you want, I can give you some free service when you get off shift~" Aug 11 18:41:10 <HashiBot> <Reina> "But do you have a physical description to go with that? I don't want to hit on just anybody." Aug 11 18:41:33 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Receptionist]** Sorry, honeykins, but I don't swing that way. And trust me, when Mr. Adventurer is in town, you'll recognize him. Now, here's your key. Aug 11 18:41:58 <HashiBot> <Reina> "Well, I tried." Aug 11 18:41:59 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _He slaps down a keycard, with the number **203** printed on one side, and the name of the hotel, Blue Wing Inn, on the other._ Aug 11 18:42:21 <HashiBot> <Tempest> [Joliet Sector - Blue Wing Inn: You have 24 hours left of room usage. You currently rent Room 203.] Aug 11 18:42:27 <HashiBot> <Reina> Okay, to the room to fucking go to bed holy shit. Aug 11 18:42:36 <HashiBot> <Reina> I just got out of /fucking prison/ and I feel filthy. Aug 11 18:42:53 <HashiBot> <Tempest> [Key item] Blue Wing Inn - Room 203 keycard Aug 11 18:43:12 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _You have 2000 P$ remaining in your pouch, and an extra 2004 P$ remaining in your backpack._ Aug 11 18:43:18 <HashiBot> <Tempest> [Pack/Main] 38.07 /60 Aug 11 18:45:20 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _5 rooms later and you find yourself in the corridor facing your room, a beautifully painted door in matte white and navy blue. The number 203 is pinned on the wall in blue marble. There is a definite sense of taste and comfort, giving the impression of a high-end hotel, despite the (relatively) low prices._ Aug 11 18:45:32 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _The door lock eagerly awaits for a keycard to eat._ Aug 11 18:46:10 <HashiBot> <Reina> Swipe me in fam. Aug 11 18:46:31 <HashiBot> <Reina> After that, I'm taking a long ass sleep. The longest. Aug 11 18:46:41 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _Click! You enter Room 203, and find all of the amenities the receptionist mentioned. The bed DOES look nice and comfortable. How so very inviting, right?_ Aug 11 18:47:13 <HashiBot> <Reina> Oh, I bet I'll look inviting /on it/ that's for damn sure. Aug 11 18:47:27 <HashiBot> <Reina> But I definitely need to rest up firs.t No one enjoys a tired whore who's not getting off. Aug 11 18:48:42 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _I assume you want to attempt long rest, right?_ Aug 11 18:49:20 <HashiBot> <Reina> Yes yes. Everything's stripped, and the next time I go into a hotel I'm absolutely leaving everything I own in the bank first and then keeping the door open. Aug 11 18:49:26 <HashiBot> <Reina> That sounds like a perfect way to meet people. Aug 11 18:49:38 <HashiBot> <Reina> But for now, bag in the corner, my ass in bed. Aug 11 18:49:57 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _Off goes the bag and your gear - and in fact, your clothes, too, and into the bed you go. Zzzz._ Aug 11 18:50:00 <HashiBot> <Tempest> Toss me a 1d6 please. Aug 11 18:51:29 <HashiBot> Command sent from Discord by Reina: Aug 11 18:51:29 <HashiBot> @roll 1d6 Aug 11 18:51:29 <MazeBot> HashiBot: 3 Aug 11 18:51:46 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _You sleep for about 6 hours. Zzz..._ Aug 11 18:52:48 <HashiBot> <Tempest> 2:25 PM. Your Fatigue level is now 41.1%. Continue sleeping? Aug 11 18:53:11 <HashiBot> <Reina> Yes please. Maybe I'll get lucky and Octa will visit me in my dreams. Aug 11 18:53:25 <HashiBot> <Tempest> Another 1d6 then please Aug 11 18:53:35 <HashiBot> Command sent from Discord by Reina: Aug 11 18:53:36 <HashiBot> @roll 1d6 Aug 11 18:53:36 <MazeBot> HashiBot: 1 Aug 11 18:53:41 <HashiBot> <Reina> PFFFFFFFFFFFFFFT. Aug 11 18:53:49 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _Two extra hours of sleep._ Aug 11 18:54:48 <HashiBot> <Tempest> 4:25 PM. Fatigue: 37.1%. You are no longer tired - and thus the effects of tiredness are no longer felt. Far cry from being fully rested, though. What do you want to do? Aug 11 18:55:13 <HashiBot> <Reina> Sleep again - though this time, maybe a medium rest. Aug 11 18:58:05 <HashiBot> <Tempest> You have Short rest and Long Rest. Napping lets you rest for sometime between 30 minutes and 3 hours, while Long Rest is between 2 and 12 hours. Aug 11 18:58:10 <HashiBot> <Tempest> There is no "medium rest". Aug 11 18:58:26 <HashiBot> <Tempest> Short rest is also called "napping". Aug 11 18:59:15 <HashiBot> <Reina> Riiiiiip. Then I'll nap. Aug 11 18:59:27 <HashiBot> <Tempest> Toss me another 1d6. Aug 11 19:00:00 <HashiBot> Command sent from Discord by Reina: Aug 11 19:00:00 <HashiBot> @roll 1d6 Aug 11 19:00:01 <MazeBot> HashiBot: 2 Aug 11 19:00:08 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _You sleep for another hour._ Aug 11 19:00:44 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _5:25 PM. Your Fatigue is now 35.1%._ Aug 11 19:00:59 <HashiBot> <Reina> And another nap. Aug 11 19:01:11 <HashiBot> <Reina> I am a laaaazy booooones. Aug 11 19:01:15 <HashiBot> <Tempest> One more d6 Aug 11 19:01:59 <HashiBot> Command sent from Discord by Reina: Aug 11 19:01:59 <HashiBot> @roll 1d6 Aug 11 19:01:59 <MazeBot> HashiBot: 2 Aug 11 19:02:28 <HashiBot> <Reina> Man it's almost like forcing yourself to sleep in repeatedly is actually not that effective at going to sleep. Aug 11 19:02:34 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _And you sleep for exactly one more hour! Looks like your body just doesn't want the rest. Maybe you can compensate in some other way..._ Aug 11 19:03:16 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _It is now 6:25 PM. Your Fatigue is 33.1%._ Aug 11 19:03:17 <HashiBot> <Reina> Fuck that, I am the one who is compensated. More napping! Aug 11 19:03:28 <HashiBot> <Tempest> Yet more napping? 1d6 please. Aug 11 19:03:38 <HashiBot> Command sent from Discord by Reina: Aug 11 19:03:38 <HashiBot> @1d6 Aug 11 19:03:45 <HashiBot> Command sent from Discord by Reina: Aug 11 19:03:45 <HashiBot> @roll 1d6 Aug 11 19:03:45 <MazeBot> HashiBot: 6 Aug 11 19:03:49 <HashiBot> <Reina> FINALLY Aug 11 19:03:55 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _Finally, you catch some kind of break, and fall asleep..._ Aug 11 19:03:58 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _...for 3 hours._ Aug 11 19:04:22 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _9:25 PM. Your fatigue is now 27.1%._ Aug 11 19:04:55 <HashiBot> <Reina> ONE MORE NAP. Aug 11 19:06:45 <HashiBot> <Reina> It's almost like I'm incredibly depressed and literally slept the entire day away. Aug 11 19:10:38 <HashiBot> <Tempest> One more 1d6 then Aug 11 19:11:06 <HashiBot> Command sent from Discord by Reina: Aug 11 19:11:06 <HashiBot> @1d6 Aug 11 19:11:14 <HashiBot> Command sent from Discord by Reina: Aug 11 19:11:14 <HashiBot> @roll 1d6 Aug 11 19:11:14 <MazeBot> HashiBot: 5 Aug 11 19:12:51 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _You sleep for 2 hours 30 minutes._ Aug 11 19:13:26 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _It is now 11:55 PM. Fatigue is now 22.1%._ Aug 11 19:13:53 <HashiBot> <Reina> It'll do. Now, while I'm still naked, I'm going to flush the toilets and take a shower. Aug 11 19:14:00 <HashiBot> <Reina> Gotta get the prison stench off me. Aug 11 19:24:53 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _You move to the shower room and turn it on. Out flows the warm water. You peruse the selection of soaps and body washes as well. You realize that it's been a long time since your last shower. A hell of a long time._ Aug 11 19:25:01 <HashiBot> <Tempest> Toss me a 1d8. Aug 11 19:25:31 <HashiBot> Command sent from Discord by Reina: Aug 11 19:25:31 <HashiBot> @roll 1d8 Aug 11 19:25:31 <MazeBot> HashiBot: 3 Aug 11 19:25:57 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _Six turns, and 30 minutes, passed. You feel clean, like new!_ Aug 11 19:26:54 <HashiBot> <Reina> Great. Time to go back to the Flying Noodle Dish and hit on people. Aug 11 19:26:58 <HashiBot> <Reina> Like, /lots/ of people. Aug 11 19:27:06 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _It is now 12:25 AM. A new day has begun!_ Aug 11 19:27:17 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _Earthsday, Quartema 8, Year 704._ Aug 11 19:28:17 <HashiBot> <Reina> Now that I'm freshened up, I can go see about Mister Adventurer and Amulet bullshit. Aug 11 19:31:05 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _After a quick stop back in the bedroom proper for you to dress up and gear up again, you step outside of Room 203 of the Blue Wing Inn, and exit the hotel, to make your way back to the popular bar... It takes 14 rooms to travel all the way back to the bar hall. This time, the Flying Noodle has a LOT more patrons. The only thing that didn't change is the goofy flying noodle logo, and the obnoxiously happy dance music. Looks like Aug 11 19:31:05 <HashiBot> the bar is a fan of the unlimitedDance radio station._ Aug 11 19:31:22 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _The bar hall is packed full of patrons, and there seems to be only a scant few spots left at the bar counter, one room to the east._ Aug 11 19:34:43 <HashiBot> <Reina> Is it the same bartender, by chance? Aug 11 19:36:05 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _The barkeep appears to be a different person this time around. Daybreak shift after all._ Aug 11 19:36:44 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _Move to the bar room?_ Aug 11 19:37:30 <HashiBot> <Reina> Hell yeah. Aug 11 19:37:57 <HashiBot> <Reina> Reina's bobbing her body to the fast beat of the song, which does quite a few interesting things to her anatomy in the process. Aug 11 19:38:44 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _You do get a few heads turning to look at you - or rather, your assets. At least until you approach the bar counter and take up one of the last few free seats._ Aug 11 19:39:00 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _The barkeep is a young human female._ Aug 11 19:39:11 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Barkeep]** Hey, what can I get you? Aug 11 19:39:31 <HashiBot> <Reina> "Hey there, gorgeous. What's on the menu? I always like to start things slow and then warm it up." Aug 11 19:39:50 <HashiBot> <Reina> What does she look like? And are any of the other patrons oggling her, too? Aug 11 19:41:42 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _A young adult human female - 25 years old, no more, probably. She's short, slender, has absolutely no chest to speak of, has shoulder-length auburn hair, a pair of blue eyes, an earring on the right, and a small but visible scar on the left cheek._ Aug 11 19:43:16 <HashiBot> <Reina> Well, just because she has no chest doesn't mean she ain't packing underneath. Aug 11 19:43:22 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Barkeep]** Whatcha in the market for? Soft drink? Hard drink? Hot drink? Maybe a cocktail? Aug 11 19:44:48 <HashiBot> <Reina> "Soft drinks sound good. But afterwards..." She gestures to the men sitting next to her, it doesn't really matter who. "I don't suppose one of you could give me a suggestion for my next drink, handsomes?" Aug 11 19:45:22 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Barkeep]** We got water, lemonade, cola, OJ, AJ, grape juice, milk, energy drinks. What's it gonna be? Aug 11 19:45:56 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _The patron directly to your left turns his head, seems hesitant for a moment, before finally replying._ Aug 11 19:46:34 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Patron]** Uh, well, how about some of that energy drink? I dunno, man. Aug 11 19:50:10 <HashiBot> <Reina> Reina just laughs, even as she orders the energy drink. "I meant for when I start hitting the booze, but good try, handsome. Like what you see?" Aug 11 19:50:22 <HashiBot> <Reina> What's this new man in my life look like? Aug 11 19:51:01 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _A generic human male in his 40s, who seems too busy chatting with his own partner, to his left._ Aug 11 19:52:01 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Barkeep]** If I were you, I wouldn't listen too much to these guys, they're heavy on the liquor tonight, and some of them look about ready to crash on the floor. Hope you won't do me the same treatment, I like sane clients. One energy drink comin' right up. That'll be 50 P$. Aug 11 19:54:00 <HashiBot> <Reina> Reina slaps down the fifty, sighing at her string of terrible luck. "Alright, but do you like girls, cutie?" She doesn't bother nursing the energy drink of all things, merely downing the can in one go. Aug 11 19:54:24 <HashiBot> <Reina> "Maybe I should try my luck at the other bar, instead." Aug 11 19:54:51 <Hebizuka> [Food] Beverage - Can of energy drink. 235 ntri, 110 wtr - Agility+1, Strength+10%, Alertness increase for 15 turns, Fatigue -2.0%, Stress +0.2% - Weight: 1 Aug 11 19:55:10 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _Assuming you're drinking it all now_ Aug 11 19:56:14 <HashiBot> <Reina> (I thought bars didn't allow takeout.) Aug 11 19:56:26 <HashiBot> <Tempest> (Depends on the drink) Aug 11 19:57:23 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _The energy drink works its magic - you feel supercharged._ Aug 11 19:57:36 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _You feel as though fatigue is being kicked down by whatever was in that can._ Aug 11 19:58:08 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Barkeep]** Aw, you're already hitting on me? Before the first real drink? Well, I can't fault you for being straightforward at least. _<Clearly sarcastic>_ Aug 11 19:58:43 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Barkeep]** Come on, stick with me, between sober gals. Music's good, ambiance is alright, at least until the really annoying patrons show up. Aug 11 19:59:05 <HashiBot> <Reina> "What can I say, waking up next to someone warm is the nicest feeling in the world." Aug 11 19:59:32 <HashiBot> <Reina> "Mmm, I will, but only if you make it worth my while? I'm sure I can help with the atmosphere somehow." Aug 11 19:59:41 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Barkeep]** As long as it's ALIVE and warm, know what I'm sayin? _<Still sounds sarcastic, but now you're not sure if she's joking or not.>_ Aug 11 20:00:21 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Barkeep]** I'll make it worth your while if you make it worth mine, and mine's measured in drinks. Don't care what you order, but I hope you don't plan on getting trashed and silly. So what's on your mind then? Aug 11 20:01:58 <HashiBot> <Reina> "Well, my boyfriend and I broke up, so I was hoping to find a boytoy and make some money on the side, know what I'm saying? The hotel room's really convienet for that." Aug 11 20:02:42 <HashiBot> <Reina> "But since everyone here's either too gay or too drunk to play the game with me, I guess I'll take a load off and gossip. What's your name, gorgeous? I'm Reina." Aug 11 20:04:06 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Barkeep]** Natasha, but just call me Nat, aight? It's faster that way. Sorry to hear about your boyfriend, by the way. Hope he wasn't too much of a cunt about it. Aug 11 20:04:28 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _Another voice rings from the other end of the bar. "NAT! 'NOTHER ONE PLEASE!", to which she replies with "CALM YOUR DRUNKEN ASS DOWN!"_ Aug 11 20:05:56 <HashiBot> <Reina> "Thanks, Natz. It was as good as it could have been, with things like this." Reina starts smiling when she hears the drinkard, however. "Want me to play waitress for you? From one gal to another, I'll do a lot of things for free." Aug 11 20:07:50 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Barkeep]** Pft, nah, leave him where he is, he's already had seven shots of whiskey. He's about done, trust me. So what brings ya to Joliet Sector? You don't look like the type to frequent the lawful and orderly towns, pardon my honesty. Aug 11 20:09:33 <HashiBot> <Reina> "Mmmm, well... tell ya what. Tell me aomething and I'll tell you something. First - I hear there's a pretty handsome Mister Adventurer guy hanging round these parts. He's paid for a month at the hotel and chills out here whenever he's not working. Ever seen him?" Aug 11 20:12:32 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Barkeep]** Oh, Gods, I know who you're talking about. Floyd Eckhart, that pompous fucker. Don't tell me you actually believe the rumors about how he's a big adventurer and explorer, do ya? Aug 11 20:14:37 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Barkeep]** The dude shows up here almost every night, always talking about his latest adventures, always bragging about some big monster he killed with a toothbrush, see what I mean? And he's always talking about his obsession, about how he's gonna find some kinda artifact, an Amulet or whatever the heck he said. Advice for you, big girl, if you wanna talk to him, don't believe everything he says, aight? No real adventurer Aug 11 20:14:37 <HashiBot> spends six hours a day in a bar talking about how big of a deal they are. Aug 11 20:15:48 <HashiBot> <Reina> "Oh trust me, I'm not interested in him for his braggery. I'm interested in him for the huge fucktons of cash he has if he's bought a hotel room for a month and wastes time here. If you don't mind my gold diggery." Aug 11 20:17:07 <HashiBot> <Reina> "And hey, a heartbroken girl like me's gotta believe in something, right? Amulets are as good as anything else." Aug 11 20:18:39 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Barkeep]** Hah! I have to say your methods are questionable, but if you're here to rinse a fucker as big as Floyd? I'll pretend I didn't see or hear anything. Go for it, girl. ... Hey speaking of which. Aug 11 20:19:40 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Barkeep]** By any chance, you're not interested in these Amulet stories either, are you? Aug 11 20:21:19 <HashiBot> <Reina> "I mean, who isn't? If nothing else, I think jewelry as fancy as that would look great on me." Aug 11 20:21:57 <HashiBot> <Reina> "But my turn, right? I'm in Juliet Sector because of my boyfriend. We had a bad fight, I got arrested, and they took me all the way from Semitas to here." Aug 11 20:22:16 <HashiBot> <Reina> "So yeah, I have me a criminal record now. Cheers to that, I guess?" Aug 11 20:23:25 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Barkeep]** So you're also an adventurer then, huh? AND you got yourself in trouble? Figures I shouldn't judge a book by its cover... Had no idea you were actually hardcore. My old man used to say that you meet all kinds... Well he wasn't wrong, goddamn. Tell you what, I got two things for you, since I like you enough. Aug 11 20:25:12 <HashiBot> <Reina> "Hey, just because I like spreading my legs doesn't mean my guns aren't just for show, eh?" Reina reaches over the counter to flex her toned, muscular arms. "Tell me what you got while you feel 'em? They're hard as steel, and stronger than an Oni." Aug 11 20:25:47 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Barkeep]** Not now, hot shot. We'll see after I'm done with my shift, maybe. Now put these babies down and listen to me, cuz what I gotta say is relevant to you, aight? Aug 11 20:26:11 <HashiBot> <Reina> "Hahahaha~ You're on, Natz. I'm all ears." Aug 11 20:26:42 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Barkeep]** First thing... If I was so interested in these Amulet rumors, I'd ask some of my colleagues in town about it... I'd especially go ask at the weapon shop in the mall, cuz they see a lot of people gearing up for this kinda "adventure". Second thing... Floyd should be coming here soon, so when you're done--... actually, yknow what? Aug 11 20:26:54 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _She rips a sheet from a notepad, grabs a pencil, and scribbles quickly._ Aug 11 20:28:33 <HashiBot> <Tempest> [Note] Natasha "Nat" Morris - 00-303-FF8F Aug 11 20:28:43 <HashiBot> <Tempest> P.S.: I'll call YOU first Aug 11 20:28:56 <HashiBot> <Reina> "Usually I have to /ask/ for girl's number." Aug 11 20:29:09 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Barkeep]** I'mma need your number, by the way. So I can warn you when Floyd-balls is there. Aug 11 20:30:20 <HashiBot> <Reina> "Uh, actually, I just got a new phone, and I'm still trying to figure it out." Reina pulls it out of her pocket. "Think you can help me with that, Natz?" Aug 11 20:30:38 <HashiBot> <Reina> Reina flashes the barkeep her most winning smile she can. Aug 11 20:31:53 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _Nat takes your phone from you, and after a quick manipulation, she etches your own phone number onto a piece of paper that she keeps for herself._ Aug 11 20:33:03 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Barkeep]** Thanks, big girl. Now go, go pay a visit to the weapon shop, aight? Tell 'em Nat sent you if they're not willing to talk. Aug 11 20:35:49 <HashiBot> <Reina> "One last thing before I go - when do you get off?" Aug 11 20:36:05 <HashiBot> <Reina> "Because my hotel bed is Queen sized and I need some to get on my knees for~" Aug 11 20:41:21 <HashiBot> <Reina> someone* Aug 11 21:04:06 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Barkeep]** I'm on shift all night, and after that I'm going home to crash. But maybe someday, aight? Aug 11 21:04:19 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Barkeep]** Like I said, I'll call you. Aug 11 21:05:52 <HashiBot> <Reina> "Oh, fine. But what's your favorite drink here and what's it cost?" Aug 11 21:06:00 <HashiBot> <Reina> "I'll buy one for you, Natz. Aug 11 21:06:02 <HashiBot> <Reina> " Aug 11 21:07:10 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Barkeep]** When I really feel like drinking? ... Shit, I don't know. A Bloody Shotgun followed by a straight shot of vodka, but it's REALLY rare. Aug 11 21:08:57 <HashiBot> <Reina> "And how much is that? From one girl to another." Aug 11 21:09:36 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Barkeep]** Sixty for the cocktail, fifty for the vodka shot alone. Aug 11 21:10:23 <HashiBot> <Reina> And that's another 110 P$ on the counter. Aug 11 21:10:37 <HashiBot> <Reina> "When you get flushed and warm, think of me, will ya?" Aug 11 21:12:04 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Barkeep]** Wow, damn. Biggest tip I've had all night. Thanks, big girl. I'll remember that. _<A wink and a smile>_ Aug 11 21:12:24 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _1894 P$ remaining in backpack._ Aug 11 21:12:41 <HashiBot> <Tempest> [Backpack/Main] 36.97 /60 Aug 11 21:13:16 <HashiBot> <Reina> "You deserve a lot more, Queenie. Don't keep me waiting /too/ long." Reina blows her a kiss, and starts heading off to the weapon shop. Aug 11 21:13:32 <HashiBot> <Reina> She /does/ stop right before leaving the entrance, though, and turns around first. Aug 11 21:14:10 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _What's on your mind?_ Aug 11 21:14:19 <HashiBot> <Reina> "Hey, EVERYONE!" Aug 11 21:15:06 <HashiBot> <Reina> "Give a big round of applause to Nat, and make sure to keep the drinks flowing!" Aug 11 21:15:18 <HashiBot> <Reina> And once every drunkard is looking her way, Reina flashes her tits. Aug 11 21:15:18 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Barkeep]** Aw god dammit. Aug 11 21:15:55 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _That did catch the attention of everyone in the bar - and everyone is hollering, howling, and hook hook haw yeah-ing at the display, the tits, and the mention of Nat doing a good job tonight._ Aug 11 21:16:10 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _You feel like this little outburst is going to get people talking._ Aug 11 21:17:16 <HashiBot> <Reina> Reina just soaks in the spotlight like the diva she is, before finally, /finally/ walking out the door and towards the weapon shop. Aug 11 21:17:42 <HashiBot> <Reina> Tits still out, of course. I'ts past midnight, what are the odds she'll run into someone who'll complain? Aug 11 21:18:01 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _Renown has increased by 15. Everyone tonight is going to remember the unknown lady who flashed more than generously-sized tits that night. Some are going to ask for names, but they'll never get one._ Aug 11 21:18:10 <HashiBot> <Tempest> [Renown: 43.2 - Completely anonymous] Aug 11 21:20:47 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _14 rooms later, you cross through the social square and head back to the mall. It's rather quiet at this time of the day, but a few late-comers are still walking to and fro. The weapon shop is open, but the night shift is pretty dead. The weapon shop dealer seems even surprised that someone would show up past midnight at all._ Aug 11 21:21:54 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Dealer]** Damn. You're here for a watersday night special? I hope not... 'cause today is earthsday. Aug 11 21:22:56 <HashiBot> <Reina> The temple prostitute's enjoying the feel of her naked breasts in the open air, so much that she's all smiles again as she walks towards the man. "Well, that's what I heard, but I was gonna ask if you'd like /my/ earthsday special." Aug 11 21:26:43 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _He finally raises his eyes up._ Aug 11 21:26:52 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Dealer]** GOD DAMM- Aug 11 21:26:59 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _Only to hide them immediately._ Aug 11 21:27:06 <HashiBot> <Reina> " /There/ we go, handsome." Aug 11 21:27:27 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Dealer]** What's wrong with you, lady? Cover up, 'fore some zealous Guard nabs you for indecent exposure! Aug 11 21:28:07 <HashiBot> <Reina> "Oh, I know how to deal with Guards. But if you're worried, maybe we can have some fun somewhere more private?" Aug 11 21:28:30 <HashiBot> <Reina> "I walked all the way from the Flying Noodle Dish to here, after all. No one patrolling tonight~" Aug 11 21:29:24 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Dealer]** No shirt, no service! Cover these goddamn monsters up 'fore I call someone that'll put orange on YO ass! Aug 11 21:30:19 <HashiBot> <Reina> "Ohhhh, fine fine." Reina does eventually cover up. "When Natz sent me here, I was really looking forward to a good time." Aug 11 21:30:40 <HashiBot> <Reina> "But I guess her dad's right; it takes all kinds, doesn't it?" Aug 11 21:32:42 <HashiBot> <Reina> "...You can look now, I've covered my sweater puppies up." Aug 11 21:33:44 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Dealer]** Damn, you know Natasha? Well that changes everything! ... Or actually, no, that explains everything. She always hangin' out with that weirdo crowd. So what can I do for you tonight, huh? Aug 11 21:35:08 <HashiBot> <Reina> "She told me to talk to you about Amulets? She said you got a lot of treasure hunters arming up here." Aug 11 21:38:41 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Dealer]** Oh, yeah yeah yeah, das right. We got ALL sorts of people coming here... though usually not in the night, and not with these two, um... _<He chins at your chest.>_ Anyway, yeah. Lots of prospectors, adventurers, the odd local who heard a rumor and who wants to make a name for himself, plenty of mercenaries... Mad money's going into those Amulet rumors. But few are repeat customers, if you know what I mean. Aug 11 21:41:55 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Dealer]** Those that do, they describe going into a death trap. Apparently there's some place out there that's just death and misery, where nobody who insists ever comes back alive. Ain't stoppin' the rumors, cause people die all the time in the UA, but I notice, I see how few of them actually return. Wish I could tell you where exactly it is but, honestly, I don't pay attention to return stories, they all describe more death Aug 11 21:41:55 <HashiBot> than information, and it's all sickening. Maybe Sodie could tell you more though. He hears more rumors and stories than anyone else this side of the bartenders, and he's such a chatterbox. Aug 11 21:42:27 <HashiBot> <Reina> "Sodie, huh? Is he the bartender at the other bar?" Aug 11 21:44:58 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Dealer]** Actually no. Fancy-ass Sodie's the stylist. He owns and runs the style shop in town. He talks funny, he even smells funny, and he talks ALL the time, but he's nice enough, I guess. Aug 11 21:47:24 <HashiBot> <Reina> "Huh, alright. Well, I'll pay him a visit, buuuuut - I don't want to leave you hanging." Aug 11 21:48:05 <HashiBot> <Reina> "I might come back for some ammo later, but for now, handsome, is there any OTHER way I can pay you back? Pretty please~?" Aug 11 21:48:49 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Dealer]** Oh, hell. Someone with your assets shouldn't be jumpin' into trouble. Hell naw. Don't you go tryin' to seduce me, lass, I've seen plenty already. Aug 11 21:50:05 <HashiBot> <Reina> "My assets get me in trouble, but they get me out just as much. But if you're sure, your loss. Ta ta~" Aug 11 21:51:00 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Dealer]** Just don't get hurt, lass. Aug 11 21:51:03 <HashiBot> <Reina> Once Reina steps out of the weapon shop, she'll bare her breasts once more. Her own little private rebellion against THE MAN. To Sodie! Aug 11 21:52:07 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _There's barely anyone at this time of the day anyway._ Aug 11 21:52:30 <HashiBot> <Reina> That's why I'm doing it NOW and not in the middle of the day. Aug 11 21:55:48 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _17 rooms later, and you find the style shop, surprisingly still open. The stylist - an effeminate, adult male mouse halfling with one heck of a stylish haircut (all white hair!), is still up, scribbling on a large notepad at his counter._ Aug 11 21:56:46 <HashiBot> <Reina> "Heeeey, handsome. A little bird told me I could find a Big Cheese here~?" Aug 11 21:57:26 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Stylist]** Oh, puh-lease. I get cheese jokes allllll the time. Can't you fools be any original for once? Aug 11 22:00:01 <HashiBot> <Reina> "Well, look up and you can tell me if my clothing's original enough for ya? It's hard to get clothes that fit me." Aug 11 22:02:00 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Stylist]** _<Eyes up.>_ Huh. Has someone finally invented teleportation and I've been phased to Garica Block? Or has the stripper invasion finally begun? Gotta say, props for your courage. Coming in there, tits out, in a police town? You sure ain't afraid of anything. So, I figure you aren't here for me to do your hair or give you eye contacts, so tell me, what can I do for ya? Aug 11 22:03:24 <HashiBot> <Reina> "Well, you could do me? I'm not the kind of gal to make assumptions, after all, so I figured I should put /everything/ on the table." Aug 11 22:03:59 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Stylist]** Pfft. You aren't my type, sorry, honey. Appreciate the thought, though. Aug 11 22:05:19 <HashiBot> <Reina> "Always gotta try." She doesn't bother covering up, however. "So, I was wondering if you had any backpacks or the like I could get, and also your boyfriend back at the weapon shop told me to talk to you about the local gossip?" Aug 11 22:05:56 <HashiBot> <Reina> "I'm hearing crazy things about Amulet hunting and a Mister Floyd Eckhart." Aug 11 22:08:32 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Stylist]** I'm a stylist, honey, not a clothing store owner. And that old coot is _not_ my boyfriend. I'm just much too refined for his grumpy derriere. But I do hear a lot of stories, yes... What's in it for me, though? You don't look like a customer, and it's gonna look weird if I just have a chat with you and your tits at midnight. Aug 11 22:09:46 <HashiBot> <Reina> "Weeeeeeeell. If you style hair up here, do you style hair down there? I've been meaning to get myself all nice and trim there, and you seem like a good hand with scissors." Aug 11 22:10:01 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _"Sodie" stares at you blankly._ Aug 11 22:10:10 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Stylist]** ...You're joking, right? Aug 11 22:10:42 <HashiBot> <Reina> "I walked through this entire Guard controlled town with my tits out. I don't joke about my body, handsome." Aug 11 22:10:56 <HashiBot> <Reina> "So, up for a new challenge? It'd make a good story, at least." Aug 11 22:12:02 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Stylist]** _<Audible sighing>_ That's gonna cost extra, I hope you realize. Aug 11 22:12:29 <HashiBot> <Reina> "Just be extra gentle with me." Aug 11 22:12:45 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Stylist]** And -please- don't tell me you want it dyed either, it's just a horrible lack of taste. Aug 11 22:13:18 <HashiBot> <Reina> "I mean, I like it when it's dyed white with cum like my bangs, buuuut I don't think you're into that sort of thing." Aug 11 22:13:35 <HashiBot> <Reina> "So, how much will it cost, handsome? Let's get to know each other." Aug 11 22:14:20 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Stylist]** Oh honey, I'm into a lot of things, but you just make it so boring, to bare yourself like that so easily. And if you want me to trim your, _ahem_, carpets, that's going to be 150 P$. Charging extra because it's both cruel _and_ unusual on poor little old me. Aug 11 22:16:28 <HashiBot> <Reina> "I gotta amuse myself somehow, don't I? It's fun to be the one paying to spread her legs, instead of being paid." Aug 11 22:16:54 <HashiBot> <Reina> That's another 150 out of my packpack to grease some palms /and/ grease my hair. Aug 11 22:17:05 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Stylist]** _<Audible sighing>_ Good graces, the things I do for business sometimes. Alright... Have a seat, and... Spread, I guess. _Ugh._ Aug 11 22:18:46 <HashiBot> <Reina> Reina laughs as she reclines on one of the empty seats, effortlessly revealing her wild fur beneath her and spreading her long and sculpted legs. Her hands, naturally, gravitate towards her naked breasts, and the shit eating grin on her face just won't go away. Aug 11 22:19:05 <HashiBot> <Reina> "So, lots of Amulet fanatics going through town?" Aug 11 22:19:15 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _1744 P$ remaining in the backpack_ Aug 11 22:21:20 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Stylist]** Oh, like you can't imagine. All those people going on that wild goose chase of treasures and fame, following these rumors and getting themselves in danger. The last few I've seen were saying they were gonna travel somewhere north of here. Something about a big abandoned place that's too full of dangers. Aug 11 22:22:46 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Stylist]** There was this one in particular... Some really eccentric dude - and believe me, if _I'M_ calling people eccentric, it's really bad. He was all boasting and proud of himself, saying he finally found the place, that he was gonna take a crack at it, that he's the best and all that jazz. VERY uninteresting, I could tell miles away he was making half of it up, but he kept mentioning "north of Joliet Sector". So who Aug 11 22:22:47 <HashiBot> knows, maybe he's onto something. Aug 11 22:23:41 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Stylist]** I rarely want the UA to eat someone alive, but this guy? Ugh. All the subtlety of a steel golem in a library. Aug 11 22:24:30 <HashiBot> <Reina> Reina closes her eyes and lets herself relax, softly humming as Sodie's impeccably dexterous fingers run through her untamed jungle and brush against her entrances. "Hmmm~ Ah, you /are/ good at this. So, that'd be towards Intersection 14, or Fort Silver?" Aug 11 22:25:36 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Stylist]** Honestly, I don't know, he just said something "north of here". It could be the old fort, for all I know, but you should take it up with him. Isn't he supposed to be showing off at the Flying Noodle? He spends all his nights there. Aug 11 22:26:40 <HashiBot> <Reina> "I stopped by tonight, but no dice. Natz said that she'd call me if he did. Hey, can you go a bit closer to the skin? Some guys don't like to use tongue since they get hair in their mouths." Aug 11 22:27:53 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Stylist]** Honey, don't tell me too much, unless you want me to start telling everyone about the Legend of the Horny Tanuki that Couldn't Shut Up About Pubic Hair. ... _<Moment of realization.>_ Unless that happens to be what you're into. Aug 11 22:28:22 <HashiBot> <Reina> "It's almost like I'm a huge degenerate who's into exhibitionism~" Aug 11 22:28:35 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _Right afterwards, a tinny electronic ringtone can be heard from your gear - your phone is ringing._ Aug 11 22:28:50 <HashiBot> <Reina> "Still too boring for you - oh hoh, there she is." Aug 11 22:29:04 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Stylist]** By all means. Take that call, while I'm busy staring at your ... hair. Aug 11 22:30:17 <HashiBot> <Reina> Reina stops groping herself to grab the phone with one hand, while reaching down between her legs with the other to keep the skin taut for easier shaving. Yup. Totally what she's doing. "Hello hello. Reina Miyako-Knight, how can I please you today?" Aug 11 22:31:49 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Nat]** Hey, big girl. Mr. Big Shot is here. Best come here quick if you want a glimpse of him. Aug 11 22:32:36 <HashiBot> <Reina> "Hey, Queenie. I'll be right there, but can you keep him busy for just a little longer? Sodie's servicing me and I'm gonna need to look my *best* if I wanna reel him in." Aug 11 22:32:55 <HashiBot> <Reina> "He's almost done, I promise." Aug 11 22:33:32 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Nat]** Sodie? ... Soren De Soto, the stylist? What are you-- ... You know what, I don't wanna know. Just show yourself quick, he's started listening to the other patrons about your little show from earlier, and he's really curious to know who did that. Aug 11 22:34:36 <HashiBot> <Reina> "I knew it'd pay off. Hope that drummed up business for you - I'll be right there, I promise." Aug 11 22:34:54 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _She hangs up._ Aug 11 22:35:12 <HashiBot> <Reina> "Mister Soren, are we almost done? You don't have to get everything, just a tuft of hair will do. Everyone goes nuts for landscaping." Aug 11 22:35:42 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Stylist]** Making friends in town already, huh? Figures. Someone like you would be hard to... ignore, that's for sure. Yeah, I think I did the best job I could,considering the rather exotic nature of your request. Aug 11 22:36:06 <HashiBot> <Reina> "Love ya lots. Maybe I'll come back again, and we can do this on the regular, Sodie~?" Aug 11 22:36:32 <HashiBot> <Reina> Alas, Reina will actually have to stay dressed for once - it would be /incredibly bad/ if she just fucking got arressted for indecent exposure right when it really matters. Aug 11 22:36:59 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Stylist]** I'm gonna be clear - I think I've seen enough female genitalia for five years. Thank you very much but no. You're invited to come back for _normal_ patronage, though. Aug 11 22:38:53 <HashiBot> <Reina> "I'm holding you to that, by the way. After five years are up, I want you grooming me again. Toodles~" Aug 11 22:39:37 <HashiBot> <Reina> Reina'll set off back to the bar at a steady clip, working up juuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuust enough sweat to get her gorgeous skin faintly gleaming, and her feminine, primal phermones working up a storm. Aug 11 22:41:06 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _Soren shakes his head, and gives off a tiny "goodbye"._ Aug 11 22:41:50 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _It'll take 8 rooms to return to the Flying Noodle, and one more if you want to head straight to the bar counter, unless you want to drag your feet in the hall first. What will you do?_ Aug 11 22:42:14 <HashiBot> <Reina> Straight to the bar. Aug 11 22:42:48 <HashiBot> <Tempest> <M04 - Objective 1 complete> Aug 11 22:42:58 <HashiBot> <Tempest> <M04 - Objective 2 activated> Aug 11 22:43:08 <HashiBot> <Tempest> 2) Find Floyd Eckhart and talk to him. Aug 11 22:45:32 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _Moments later, and you find yourself back at the bar, which is still in full night shift swing. Many patrons recognize you, catcalling you, yelling "TITTIES!" and making other similar demands to see the tits again. Sitting at your previous spot is a human male in an obnoxious cowboy hat. The first thing that strikes you is that he's -short-, but he's a loudmouth and he's very talkative... and he carries a Single Action Army on Aug 11 22:45:32 <HashiBot> his right thigh as though he's some kind of badass cowboy._ Aug 11 22:45:42 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _No doubt about it, half-pint cowboy is Floyd Eckhart._ Aug 11 22:45:56 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Nat]** Hey, there's the big girl. Floyd, you wanted to meet her, I think? Aug 11 22:47:51 <HashiBot> <Reina> "Are /you/ Floyd?" Reina giggles as she snuggles up to him, eagerly wrapping one hand around his waist. "I didn't expect you to be so handsome." Aug 11 22:48:54 <HashiBot> <Reina> "I'm glad you heard about me, I was hoping it'd catch your attention." Aug 11 22:50:19 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Floyd]** The one and only Floyd Eckhart, it's me, baby! I've heard you're the pretty miss who showed off to everyone just moments before I showed up. I couldn't, maybe, convince you to do a repeat performance? _<Creepy little grin.>_ Aug 11 22:50:23 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Nat]** Floyd. Aug 11 22:50:31 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Floyd]** Ah, fine, fine... Aug 11 22:51:17 <HashiBot> <Reina> "Oh, I don't mind at all - but do you want a public show, a private show, or /both?/" Aug 11 22:51:43 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Floyd]** Ooh, well, if you're offering... Aug 11 22:51:46 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Nat]** Floyd! Aug 11 22:52:10 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Floyd]** Okay, fine I'll stop! Geez... It's getting REAL hard to find some fun when you're around. Aug 11 22:52:30 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _Natasha reaches under the bar counter, and plops a tiny little plastic sign on the counter, which reads: "NO FUN ALLOWED"._ Aug 11 22:52:40 <HashiBot> <Reina> Reina trails her fingers down Floyd's chest, playing the role of the harlot with true gutso. "Natz, don't be a killjoy. I did you a favor, didn't I? I just want all my friends - and my future friends - to get along." Aug 11 22:53:08 <HashiBot> <Reina> I toss Natz a wink, and gently begin edging the plastic sign off of the bar counter. "Pretty please, just this one night~?" Aug 11 22:53:16 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Nat]** Aight, but if he does something funny like sexual harassment, I ain't reporting it, got it? All your problem. Aug 11 22:53:34 <HashiBot> <Reina> "You're the best, Queenie~" Aug 11 22:54:53 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Floyd]** Finally! So, big girl, I suppose you've heard all about me already, yet you're a new face to me. What's bringing you to me, huh? Is it my greatness? Is it the call for adventure? Aug 11 22:55:18 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _Nat rolls her eyes so hard, you swear you -heard- it._ Aug 11 22:57:17 <HashiBot> <Reina> "Well, first, let me get comfortable, handsome - unless you'd like to do the honors?" Reina grabs Floyd's hands gently, curling his fingers around her tight shirt. "A brave adventurer like you deserves to open the treasure chest." Aug 11 22:57:57 <HashiBot> <Reina> She very carefully avoids being too rough, lest he suddenly pussies out for being too assertive. Aug 11 22:58:25 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _Other patrons cheer on, chanting "THE TITTIES, THE TITTIES", and Nat continues rolling her eyes so hard you swear someone is going to say 'Rolling staaaaart!' really soon._ Aug 11 22:59:21 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Floyd]** Oh uh, well, damn, you don't mess around! But, uh, how about I buy you a drink and we go and have a chat about it in my hotel room? I have a suite at the Blue Wing Inn, you're gonna love it. Aug 11 23:01:21 <HashiBot> <Reina> "Oh, come on, Floyd. Look at everyone urging you on! You can /really/ be their hero tonight." Aug 11 23:02:33 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Nat]** Yeah, Floyd, be a hero, for once in your life. Aug 11 23:02:39 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _The sarcasm is almost palpable._ Aug 11 23:03:19 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Floyd]** Ah, yeah, sure, what the heck. I'll have a lemonade, and whatever the big girl wants - one drink on me, if you show 'em off! Aug 11 23:04:41 <HashiBot> <Reina> "You know what? A sour taste in the mouth is *just* what I need. A lemonade for me too, Queenie - and Floyd, free my puppies!" Aug 11 23:05:38 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Nat]** Of all the crazies I have to serve, those who order soft drinks are the worst? Man, it's the freakin Twilight Zone in here. Aug 11 23:06:00 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _Two cans of lemonade are quickly produced from behind the counter._ Aug 11 23:06:03 <Hebizuka> [Food] Beverage - Can of lemonade. 152 ntri, 96 wtr - Agility+1, Alertness increase for 6 turns - Weight: 1 Aug 11 23:07:42 <HashiBot> <Reina> Reina gets a terrible idea, and takes Floyd's can right before he can grab it. Aug 11 23:08:18 <HashiBot> <Reina> And then, with a shake and a flourish, she opens the can and dumps all the sweet, sticky drink all over her shirt and tits. Aug 11 23:11:06 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _Cue hollering and cheering from the entire bar. Joliet Sector is going to be very animated tonight._ Aug 11 23:11:38 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _Floyd is trying as best as he can to maintain a good facade, but his face is red as ketchup. He's embarrassed, horny, and the situation is completely out of his control, and he HATES to admit it._ Aug 11 23:12:31 <HashiBot> <Reina> "Open your treasure chest and drink your **fill**, handsome! I'll be alllll yours afterward." Aug 11 23:17:36 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _He hesitates harder than a virgin, but - to the cheering crowd's increased howling, he eventually pulls your shirt away and starts licking the spilled soda off of your body. Floyd has trouble hiding how he's -fuming- at your complete domination of the situation. You stole the show from him!_ Aug 11 23:20:14 <HashiBot> <Reina> Reina's throwing her head back and moaning loudly, playing it up for the entire crowd as they get drunker and hornier and piss away all of their finances at Queenie's bar. Floyd, of course, is mediocre - but Reina's getting off on the attention, and everyone in the bar is worshiping her. Aug 11 23:21:56 <HashiBot> <Reina> "Ooooh, Floyd - your tongue's as quick as your trigger finger. But promise me you won't be a quickshot tonight?" Can Reina see an erection in his pants, or is he that put off by getting put in his place? Either way, it's time to reel this fucker in, and the hotel's just the place to do it. Aug 11 23:24:54 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _You cannot see anything obvious. Could be that his body is honest, could be that he isn't, but you have no way to tell right now._ Aug 11 23:25:46 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Floyd]** Yeah, I-, Yeah, let's go to the hotel already, ahah... It's - I'll see you all later, guys! I'll tell you more about the white dragon in the fridge next time, I promise! _<Vain attempt at trying to recapture the attention of his "audience">_ Aug 11 23:27:27 <HashiBot> <Reina> "Three cheers for Floyd, the man of the hour! Hip hip, hooray!" Aug 11 23:27:53 <HashiBot> <Reina> There's no way in hell anyone is cheering for him, exactly, but he certainly won't complain. Aug 11 23:28:10 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _HOORAY, goes the crowd! Natasha looks very amused. This turned out way more entertaining for the barkeep than she imagined._ Aug 11 23:28:51 <HashiBot> <Reina> "Whisk me away to a life of adventure, Floyd. I'm alllll yours tonight." Aug 11 23:29:41 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Floyd]** Put that on my tab, Nat. Aug 11 23:30:00 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Nat]** It's dwindling, you know. Hope the treasure hunting goes well, 'man of the hour'. Aug 11 23:30:25 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Floyd]** Yeah yeah I know my credit is running out, shush.... Um. Yeah... Reina, was it? Come on, follow me. Aug 11 23:31:01 <HashiBot> <Reina> "Of course, Hero~" Aug 11 23:31:22 <HashiBot> <Reina> "Thanks for everything, Queenie~ I'll tell you all about it later!" Aug 11 23:31:29 <HashiBot> <Tempest> <M04: Objective 2 complete> Aug 11 23:31:36 <HashiBot> <Tempest> <M04: Objective 3 activated> Aug 11 23:31:59 <HashiBot> <Tempest> 3) Deal with Eckhart and find a way to get information from him. Aug 11 23:32:30 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _Will you follow him to his room or do you want to stay behind?_ Aug 11 23:33:56 <HashiBot> <Reina> I'll go with him, but stop right before we enter his room. Aug 11 23:35:15 <HashiBot> <Reina> "Handsome, before we go any further, I wanted to ask you - did you enjoy yourself at the bar?" Aug 11 23:37:13 <HashiBot> <Reina> Reina's had her big, fluffy tanuki tail curled around Floyd's waist for a while, and her breasts, naturally, had been completely uncovered since Floyd finally freed them. Aug 11 23:37:54 <HashiBot> <Tempest> Toss me a 1d12 Aug 11 23:40:03 <HashiBot> Command sent from Discord by Reina: Aug 11 23:40:03 <HashiBot> @roll 1d2 Aug 11 23:40:03 <MazeBot> HashiBot: 2 Aug 11 23:41:29 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _12 rooms later, and you are in the corridor, in front of Room 204. He stops and turns to listen to you, just as he was about to unlock his door._ Aug 11 23:41:51 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Floyd]** Uh, well, um... Yeah, but I think I'll enjoy myself even more when we get inside, right? So come on in. Aug 11 23:41:59 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _The door unlocks, and he gets in._ Aug 11 23:43:45 <HashiBot> <Reina> There's a little bit of a debate in Reina's head - buuuut, worse comes to worst, she can always just kill him later. There's no way in hell he's going to outlast her, after all. Aug 11 23:44:05 <HashiBot> <Reina> Reina steps in, gently closing the door shut with her tail. Aug 11 23:44:47 <HashiBot> <Reina> "Now it's your turn to take the lead, handsome. How do you want me? On my back, on my knees? Rock my world and I'll rock yours." Aug 11 23:45:48 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _Room 204 is exactly like yours, except with the signs of weeks of use by a lone, single male. A few papers strewn about, empty packagings from takeout stands, empty burger boxes from the local burger joint (Officer Beef's), empty soda cans..._ Aug 11 23:46:12 <HashiBot> <Reina> On the one hand, gross as fuck. On the other, better than leaving his body in /my/ room. Aug 11 23:46:20 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Floyd]** Ho-however you like it best, I'm all about taking it slow, you know? Eheh... Aug 11 23:46:43 <HashiBot> <Reina> "You know, Floyd, if you're a virgin that's okay." Aug 11 23:47:33 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Floyd]** NO! I'm not! I'm ... Okay, I've only ever done it three times and each time it was a hooker in Garica Block, okay? I'm NOT a virgin, I'm just... Not _as_ experienced! Aug 11 23:48:31 <HashiBot> <Reina> Reina pats the bed down, testing its firmness before parking her pretty tush upon it. "Would it make you feel more at ease if I was your personal whore for the night, then? I want you to have fun, and sometimes a bit of familiarity is all we need." Aug 11 23:48:47 <HashiBot> <Reina> "Since you're so cute, I'll even throw in a discount." Aug 11 23:51:05 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Floyd]** Whoa, wait, wait, you want me to pay you? But, uh... I even got you a drink and stuff, and-... Aug 11 23:51:11 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Floyd]** Okay, fine, how much? Aug 11 23:53:50 <HashiBot> <Reina> "Hmmm... well, since you're handsome, and I'm exotic - let's say 500 for the next 24 hours." Aug 11 23:54:06 <HashiBot> <Reina> "I promise you won't want to leave the room ever again." Aug 11 23:54:52 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Floyd]** F-five hundred? Aug 11 23:55:38 <HashiBot> <Reina> "For the entire day and night. But if that's too much for you, well - I hear that you know a thing or two about Amulets." Aug 11 23:55:45 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Floyd]** Uh, look, you're charming, and, well, sexy, and all, but I can't afford to pay you that much... Besides, I don't think I could make use of these 24 hours and --... Aug 11 23:55:56 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Floyd]** ...Ah, I see, so this is what it's all about. Aug 11 23:56:19 <HashiBot> <Reina> "Yup. I don't see a reason why we can't mix business and pleasure." Aug 11 23:57:12 <HashiBot> <Reina> "Like you said - you had fun, didn't you? Well, we can have a lot more fun right now." Aug 11 23:58:49 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Floyd]** What if I say no? Will you just leave my room, go back to the Flying Noodle and keep partying with your new friends over there, huh? I'll be fine, thank you... Aug 11 23:59:31 <HashiBot> <Reina> "I don't think you want to say no, handsome." Aug 12 00:00:51 <HashiBot> <Reina> "I think you're lonely." Reina stretches on the bed, scooting up to rest her back against the headboard, and stripping off her pants to reveal her toned legs and her wet entrance. Aug 12 00:01:14 <HashiBot> <Reina> "I think that waking up next to someone warm and wanting to be there with you is the best feeling in the world." Aug 12 00:01:30 <HashiBot> <Reina> "And I think we can give that to each other." Aug 12 00:01:34 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Floyd]** I- I... Uh... Aug 12 00:02:25 <HashiBot> <Reina> "I wasn't joking when I called you the man of the hour. It's midnight, and I'm lonely too, and I want to have someone hold me in his arms and tell me about myths and legends." Aug 12 00:03:15 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Floyd]** How about 350... 350 P$, and we'll talk shop about the Amulet, but AFTER... After we finish our, uh, business. Aug 12 00:03:23 <HashiBot> <Reina> Her fingers graze her lower lips, and she flares them out to reveal how they gleam in the hotel light, trails of juice between her fingers. "I think that's a fair trade. It's more honest than anything you'll get from Garcia." Aug 12 00:03:38 <HashiBot> <Reina> "Hahaha. Yes, that's great. Now you're really taking charge, handsome." Aug 12 00:04:04 <HashiBot> <Reina> "Keep at it and Natz might fall for you too." Aug 12 00:04:11 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Floyd]** Okay... Okay then. Well, I guess it's no different than with Angie back at the Block. Aug 12 00:04:33 <HashiBot> <Reina> "Oh, trust me, Floyd. I am going to ruin you for other women." Aug 12 00:04:35 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _Fade to black?_ Aug 12 00:04:39 <HashiBot> <Reina> Fade to black~ Aug 12 00:05:06 <Hebizuka> _Floyd Eckhart tosses money in your direction, first things first._ Aug 12 00:05:09 <Hebizuka> [Money] 350 P$ Aug 12 00:05:14 <HashiBot> <Reina> How long does it take~, that's the real question. Aug 12 00:05:31 <HashiBot> <Tempest> Toss me a 2d15+5 please, so that we can figure out how long _you_ are taking him on a ride for. Aug 12 00:06:13 <HashiBot> <Reina> Hahahahaha.

You're spent, but him more than you._ Aug 12 00:08:55 <HashiBot> <Tempest> [Stress: 13.9%] (-3.9) Aug 12 00:09:12 <HashiBot> <Reina> Pffffffffffft. Maurice was waaaay better. Aug 12 00:09:21 <HashiBot> <Reina> But, well, I knew what I was getting into. Aug 12 00:09:32 <HashiBot> <Reina> Can't always have a perfect day at work. Aug 12 00:10:12 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _Interestingly, you are back at 2094 P$ in the backpack._ Aug 12 00:10:22 <HashiBot> <Tempest> [Backpack/Main] 38.97 /60 Aug 12 00:10:59 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Floyd]** _<Exhausted>_ Well... T-that's that then... You are WAY better than Angie... Angie just lays there, you just... wheeeew! Wrung me out and dry! Aug 12 00:12:48 <HashiBot> <Reina> Reina takes a moment to take out Floyd's deflating cock from her mouth, quickly swallowing the last drops of his essence before finally relaxing. "Not even the girls at the Dark Sanctums can compare to me. Can I spoon you while we pillow talk?" Aug 12 00:12:48 <HashiBot> <Gear> Level up! @Reina is now **level 26**. Aug 12 00:13:09 <HashiBot> <Reina> "Trust me, you want my breasts massaging your back after a workout like that." Aug 12 00:13:15 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Floyd]** Sure, sure, whatever you want... ahhh...yesss. Aug 12 00:13:38 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Floyd]** So, go ahead, ask me anything and I'll answer. Aug 12 00:15:31 <HashiBot> <Reina> Reina gives his boyhood one last kiss before curling up around him, easily being the bigger spoon thanks to the size difference. One hand is resting on his crotch, idly fondling his balls... while the other reaches behind her to grab her Browning Auto-5. Just in case. Aug 12 00:15:52 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _He is none the wiser ... for now._ Aug 12 00:16:44 <HashiBot> <Reina> "So, what /do/ you know about the Amulet up north, handsome?" Reina makes sure to distract him by peppering his neck with kisses, and blowing softly into his ear. As long as he doesn't turn around, she'll be good - and even then, he'd just bury his face in her tits and motorboat them again. Aug 12 00:17:06 <HashiBot> <Reina> Ahhh, the joys of being taller than your man. Aug 12 00:17:56 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Floyd]** Well, that it's the last one that wasn't found yet, and that I'll find it, yeah... It's been my life dream, to find it... Makin' a name for myself. I guess you're looking for it too, huh? Aug 12 00:18:55 <HashiBot> <Reina> "I wouldn't mind stumbling across it, but it's my inner history nerd that's more interested than anything else." Aug 12 00:19:16 <HashiBot> <Reina> "I wanted to be a historian when I was in the kids' pen, but, well - I was blessed with a body like this." Aug 12 00:19:37 <HashiBot> <Reina> "How about you? Just in it for the glory, or is there anything deeper, thicker, underneath?" Aug 12 00:20:49 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Floyd]** The glory, the fame, the money... You know, all those things good explorers should have! So you're in it for the nerdy interests and I'm in it for the material interests... Tell you what, maybe we could, you know, go look for it together? You could be my tag partner, my assistant... Aug 12 00:21:45 <HashiBot> <Reina> "You're that attached to me? My my, Floyd - do you talk like this to Angie, too? An exciting life as your assistant?" Aug 12 00:22:56 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Floyd]** Nah, Angie's just a working girl... I can tell, I know you're special, you know? The way you talk to me, the way you do everything. Aug 12 00:23:12 <HashiBot> <Reina> Reina reaches her tail around to fluff up Floyd's meager length, burying it in soft, warm fur as she gets doubly ready to blow this idiot away. Aug 12 00:23:40 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Floyd]** So what do you say? Should we travel together? Don't worry, I'll protect you... After all, I managed to stay alive, right? Haha... Aug 12 00:23:52 <HashiBot> <Reina> Actually how big is Floyd down there? That'll be one of the deciding factors. Aug 12 00:24:00 <HashiBot> <Tempest> Exactly what you expect. Aug 12 00:24:08 <HashiBot> <Tempest> As scrawny as he is. Aug 12 00:24:17 <HashiBot> <Reina> Pffffffffffffffffffffffft. Aug 12 00:24:38 <HashiBot> <Reina> "And would I be expected to be your stress relief too, handsome? I can't afford to go out on wild goose chases, you know." Aug 12 00:25:03 <HashiBot> <Reina> "That's why I am who I am, and not an archeologist." Aug 12 00:27:21 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Floyd]** Well, when we'll be done, we'll... I'll be rich, and I'll be able to pay you as much as you want, so, yeah, why not, right? Aug 12 00:27:56 <HashiBot> <Reina> "Well... I can't say I'm unwilling, but I'm a girl who likes a sure thing." Aug 12 00:28:15 <HashiBot> <Reina> "Tell me more about the Amulet, first. Where is it, exactly? What's guarding it?" Aug 12 00:28:34 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Floyd]** Ah, ah, ah... Can't have an experienced man tell you all of his secrets right away, now, can he? Aug 12 00:28:50 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Floyd]** Why not just come with me? We'll get this done together, baby, I promise... Aug 12 00:29:50 <HashiBot> <Reina> "You're good, Floyd, but I just don't think you're /that/ good. After all, you've been staying in this hotel room for weeks, instead of actually going out there and getting the treasure." Aug 12 00:30:12 <HashiBot> <Reina> "It took you forever to open my treasure chest back in the bar, remember? I don't work for free, I need to eat too." Aug 12 00:30:27 <HashiBot> <Reina> "And while your cum is amazing, I can't survive off only your thick seed." Aug 12 00:30:42 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Floyd]** I ... well, uh... Y'know, I'm not like those other fools who go in guns blazing and get killed, yknow? I'll find that Amulet because I'm not too busy dying, yknow?

I think 500 P$ is fair, right? Aug 12 00:33:52 <HashiBot> <Reina> "Wow. You don't want to marry me. That's not the kind of thing you say to a girl you're trying to make your assistant, your tag partner, and your personal cocksucker, you know?" Aug 12 00:34:20 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Floyd]** Yeah, sorry, I'm not really into that marrying thing. I'm not made for the husband life.

First I go to Intersection 14, and then I follow an unmarked UA path, north of the intersection. When you follow that route, you eventually end up in an abandoned place called Fort Silver. It's some kind of ghost town... Or it would be, if it wasn't full of freakin dragons. More dragons than you can shake a rifle at...

Aug 12 00:49:35 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Floyd]** I mean, I need to do this gig really quickly, because I'm running out of cash.

Aug 12 00:51:54 <HashiBot> <Reina> And then Reina presses the barrel of the Browning to Floyd's back. Aug 12 00:51:54 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Floyd]** What? But I told you all I know! You've gotta do this with me, man! You can't just hang me out! Aug 12 00:52:25 <HashiBot> <Reina> "I'm not going to hang you out. I'm going to put you down."
