Log:V4 Session 4 (Meta, no ontology)

From Mazeworld

May 08 18:04:39 <Hebizuka> [Session start!] May 08 18:04:46 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _After what seems like an eternity, you wake up. You have a bit of trouble understanding what happened... The last thing you remember, you're pretty sure you died, but here you are, slowly waking up from what seemed like a very long nap. The first thing you notice is that you're waking up in a hospital bedroom. It doesn't look like home or anywhere familiar._ May 08 18:04:51 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _The next thing you notice is that there appears to be someone waiting for you at your bedside ; a fifty-something man, dressed in a lab coat, with a look of concern - or is it relief? - on his face. He observes you waking up, but doesn't say a thing, figuring you want the first word._ May 08 18:09:15 <HashiBot> <Jayhawker> *Jude lets out an awkward grunt as she instinctively lurches forward, her brow furrowing in annoyance while her eyes adjust to the light. The halfling clutches at the back of her head for seemingly no reason, then shoots the stranger an awkward look, as if expecting something. "You're... a doctor, yeah? It's been a while since I've been like this. What the hell happened?"* May 08 18:09:40 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Medic]** Good morning, miss Mustaine. Yes, I am, in fact, a doctor. 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 08 18:14:22 <HashiBot> <Jayhawker> *"The last thing I remember?" The woman's hand falls from her head and into her lap, and she slides one knee up to rest her other elbow on, attempting to look casual... as much as that works. "I was in a fight, I think; I'd just gotten jumped by these guys on some nasty street, one knocked me to my knees and... are you gonna tell me I got drugged or something?"* May 08 18:15:23 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Medic]** ... Hmm. So you do remember; Excellent, the transiiton, so to speak, has thus gone well... 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. May 08 18:15:33 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Medic]** You are no longer at home, miss Mustaine, you are somewhere else entirely - this realm is called the Mazes. May 08 18:19:28 <HashiBot> <Jayhawker> *Those words either come across as uncomfortable or unbelievable, because Jude can't do much more than stare for a moment. "I died." she says, bluntly, as if trying to find the punch line. "Well, shi- err, I mean... that's news. So this is like the afterlife? Can't be Heaven."* May 08 18:21:17 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Medic]** Indeed not. Think of it as another realm instead. But... Oh. Forgive me. May 08 18:21:27 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Medic]** 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 08 18:21:38 <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 08 18:24:40 <HashiBot> <Jayhawker> *The way that the zebra girl's face twists almost seems to say that it might not be the weirdest thing she's ever seen, after all... but she just shakes her head a tad. "Okay, Dr. Gage. So these, ah, Mazes. I guess you're an employee here? Who is the Administrator? Am I meeting them next?"* May 08 18:26:10 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Dr. Gage]** Sadly, no, she couldn't be there to see you in person, but rest assured that she's watching. I did work on her orders to bring you back here. In exchange for your 'second chance', so to speak, she wishes you to complete an objective. May 08 18:26:21 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Dr.Gage]** The Admin is mostly responsible for bringing you here and that I'm just following her orders, she has told me to tell you what your role here is. You may be referred to hereon as the **Contestant**, a title that bears a certain amount of importance here. Your objective is to find four ancient artifacts, said to have been forged by deities - the Cardinal Amulets. May 08 18:26:33 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Dr. Gage]** These four objects will, if you find all four of them, allow you the possibility to return home, safe and sound. And I do not know much more, unfortunately, besides the fact that it's up to you to figure out where they are and how to acquire them. Why and how, I do not know either. She simply told me to say this is your primary objective. May 08 18:30:29 <HashiBot> <Jayhawker> *"Okay, okay, hold on. Contestant..." Jude raises her right hand in a somewhat reaching sort of fashion as she makes the move to sit up completely straight, letting her legs hang over the bed. "So I need to go and find these Amulets, and then I get to leave... and you can't help. Is this some kind of game? Did you kidnap me?"* May 08 18:30:59 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _It dawns on you that you're not wearing anything under the bedsheets. Gage turns around automatically - out of courtesy more than anything._ May 08 18:31:30 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Dr. Gage]** I wouldn't use the word 'kidnapping'. I myself don't fully understand what kind of process the Administrator pulled to bring you here, but suffice to say, that I built the body... and she brought in the rest of... You. May 08 18:31:53 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Dr. Gage]** That is all I know. Now... If you don't mind, you have gear, including clothing, waiting for you over there, on the other side of the room... May 08 18:34:44 <HashiBot> <Jayhawker> *Despite being caught up in apparent cynicism, the woman has enough dignity to clutch onto her covers and pull them back over herself, avoiding a tiny bit of a blush. "Sorry. Well, I mean... I guess I want to see what you've got. Anything's better than running out empty-handed."* May 08 18:35:06 <HashiBot> <Tempest> (( This is, of course, all the stuff already added on your sheet. May 08 18:35:29 <HashiBot> <Jayhawker> (( Mhmm, well aware. )) May 08 18:35:33 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Dr. Gage]** All geared up? May 08 18:39:08 <HashiBot> <Jayhawker> *After rushing through the process of getting dressed, Jude can't help but smirk at the inclusion of guns... and storage. "Uh, yeah. Is this stuff necessary? Like, what, am I going to run into bandits on the way out?"* May 08 18:39:44 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Dr. Gage]** The Mazes are a harsh world. Outside of the towns and settlements such as this one, you will find this place to be dangerous - you may need to fight for your own defense on a regular basis. May 08 18:40:09 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Dr. Gage]** This town is called Arnett. It is a small city in the Eastern Zone. If you're ready to leave, I'll escort you to the town center. May 08 18:42:24 <HashiBot> <Jayhawker> *"Well, I would ask you something else, but I don't know what else there is to say. I think I'd like to go now, yeah. Thank you for, uh... saving me, I guess, Doctor."* May 08 18:42:51 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Dr. Gage]** You're welcome, although I did only half the work. Now, please follow me out... May 08 18:42:55 <HashiBot> <Tempest> >Ready to go? May 08 18:44:42 <HashiBot> <Jayhawker> *Jude nods, eagerly making her way out the door. Not much else to do.* May 08 18:44:56 <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 08 18:44:58 <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 08 18:45:14 <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. Three quick pieces of advice before I let you go: May 08 18:45:19 <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 08 18:45:24 <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 08 18:45:29 <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 08 18:51:46 <HashiBot> <Jayhawker> *It's a handful of information to take in, but Jude tilts her head confidently, clearly not minding. "I think I can get around a city by myself. I get the feeling this is supposed to be the last time we see each other, so - Cardinal Amulets." she repeats, not hesitating to turn and try to find the town map.* May 08 18:52:31 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Dr. Gage]** Good luck, and stay safe out there. May 08 18:52:48 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _The good doctor shakes your hand, and proceeds to turn around and disappear back towards the direction of his facility._ May 08 18:52:53 <HashiBot> <Tempest> <**M02: First Town** - Quest complete!> May 08 18:52:58 <HashiBot> <Tempest> <**M03: Take the Long Way Home** - Quest started.> May 08 18:53:11 <HashiBot> <Tempest> M03: Objectives May 08 18:53:12 <HashiBot> <Tempest> 1) Head to Arnett's Hiring Bureau to register yourself as a contractor: the Hiring Bureau is the place to go to find jobs and initiate sidequests, in order to earn money and acquire better gear. May 08 18:53:16 <HashiBot> <Tempest> 2) Ask around in Arnett and inquire about the closest Angelic town, to learn more about the Contestant Prophecy and the Cardinal Amulets' supposed whereabouts. May 08 18:53:46 <HashiBot> <Tempest> (( And from that point on you have full control and freedom to go where you please. Now for that town map... May 08 18:53:54 <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 08 18:54:03 <HashiBot> <Tempest> Facilities in the Arnett Social Square: SS Center (you are here!) - Bank - Hiring Bureau - Bar (The Bolt Face) - Restaurant (Diner - Bill's Burgers) - Takeout stand - Shooting range - Library May 08 18:54:04 <HashiBot> <Tempest> Other areas that can be accessed from here: Hospital - Residential area - Shop sector (linked to Special facility)- Town entrance (linked to Town Generator) May 08 18:54:07 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _Where to?_ May 08 18:57:26 <HashiBot> <Jayhawker> *Jude thinks about her options... and realises there is probably nothing she can do without a bit of cash in her pocket. She heads to the Hiring Bureau.* May 08 18:58:48 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _Three rooms later, and you find yourself passing the door announcing the Hiring Bureau. The place looks like a large office, where the walls are plastered with recruitment or advertisement posters. It is an otherwise very simple room - with only one large desk, a computer, a board of announcements and classifieds, and the only worker here, the Hirer, sitting at the desk.__ May 08 19:03:21 <HashiBot> <Jayhawker> *It doesn't exactly feel natural walking into such a quaint looking space with a gun in plain view, but people haven't seemed to mind yet, so... Jude approaches the desk, holding a hand to her mouth while she clears her throat. "Hello. My name is Jude Mustaine. Dr. Gage at the hospital told me to look here for some work available?"* May 08 19:05:18 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Hirer]** Jude Mustaine, let me look... Hmm... May 08 19:05:33 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Hirer]** Nope, you don't seem to be in our database, but I could sign you up, if you'd like? May 08 19:09:06 <HashiBot> <Jayhawker> *"Yes, that would be great. Whatever you need to do."* May 08 19:09:58 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Hirer]** So you're new, then? Great! I will enter your name since you already gave it to me... I'll need your phone number and current residence if you have any. May 08 19:12:31 <HashiBot> <Jayhawker> *"I, uh..." Jude pauses there, blinking a few times back-to-back. She is definitely not from around... and she doubts her old cell carrier has service in another dimension. "I can't give you that info. I just arrived here... in the Mazes, I mean."* May 08 19:13:12 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Hirer]** Oh, that's unfortunate. Then you'll have to come check back for available contracts once in a while. Nearly every town has a Bureau, though, so it should still be fine! And your background check is complete... ...That's curious. May 08 19:13:28 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Hirer]** The option to add you as Employer is greyed out... Well, I suppose you'll be a Contractor then. May 08 19:16:10 <HashiBot> <Jayhawker> *"Contractor. That sounds as good as anything, I think." It's not as if she really knows the difference, anyway. "What sorts of contracts does this company offer? I feel like I'm a bit... strongly equipped for community service."* May 08 19:16:29 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Hirer]** OK, so, 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 08 19:16:36 <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 08 19:18:15 <HashiBot> <Jayhawker> *"That all seems pretty reasonable. I guess I'm sort of an errand boy at the moment, then, unless someone has more serious things in mind that they need done."* May 08 19:18:45 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Hirer]** Well, unfortunately, there isn't anything I can give you at the moment, but you should come and check back later! May 08 19:18:56 <HashiBot> <Tempest> <M03: Objective 1 is complete.> May 08 19:19:05 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Hirer]** In the meantime, can I help you with anything else? May 08 19:21:13 <HashiBot> <Jayhawker> *"Ah, well... that's a downer." Jude purses her lips, bringing one hand up onto her hip. "Hey, actually, do you have any ideas on where the best place in town might be to get my hands on some... local information? You know, gossip."* May 08 19:21:56 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Hirer]** Oh! Well... You can try going to the Bolt Face, the local bar. The barkeep always has a good story to tell. May 08 19:23:09 <HashiBot> <Jayhawker> *"Alright, I'll check that out, then. Thanks for your time." May 08 19:23:26 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Hirer]** You are more than welcome! Stay safe out there, ma'am! May 08 19:23:33 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _>To the Bolt Face?_ May 08 19:24:25 <HashiBot> <Jayhawker> *Jude steps out, hoping she can remember where the bar is without peeking at the map again.* May 08 19:25:54 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _Thankfully it's not too difficult, since that the way there includes returning to the town center - a quick glance at the town map shows it's not too far, one of the businesses of the West street. In total, you navigate six more rooms, before finding yourself at the aforementioned drinking hole._ May 08 19:27:07 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _You find yourself in the hall of the Bolt Face, with several tables and chairs lined up along the walls. The decoration is a little spartan, but there's ambiance music - some generic classic rock from a band you're not sure you've ever heard before. There isn't any patron in the bar at the moment, although this might be because it's early in the morning. A clock shows it's about 8 AM._ May 08 19:27:19 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _To the west is the bar counter. To the east, back into the street._ May 08 19:32:08 <HashiBot> <Jayhawker> *Hoping that whatever businessman might be here won't be offended by her lack of... business... the halfling immediately approaches the counter and leans over it. "Hello, anybody home?"* May 08 19:33:47 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _The bartender hurries from the room to the north._ May 08 19:34:04 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Barkeep]** Oh, damn, sorry. I didn't hear you came in. Hi there, what can I get you? May 08 19:37:03 <HashiBot> <Jayhawker> *"Hey, man. Sadly, I can't really say that I have a lot of money to spend... or any... but that's why I'm here. I just arrived and I was kinda wondering if you'd like to talk. Little birdie says you're a guy who's good at sharing."* May 08 19:37:46 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _The bartender looks a little surprised, almost taken aback... But he regains his composure, with a bit of a mischievous smile to match._ May 08 19:38:36 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Barkeep]** Oh, so my reputation travels far, from what I hear... I've never seen you around here, stranger, but tell you what, I like you. You can have one drink on me if you wish. Now, tell me what brought you here? I'm curious to see what you wanna talk about. May 08 19:39:00 <HashiBot> <Tempest> >Do you wish to place an order? May 08 19:42:44 <HashiBot> <Jayhawker> *"Alright, so I know you probably hear this every day, but I'm not from the Mazes. I just woke up at the hospital this morning and apparently I'm supposed to be on some mission to find these magic artifacts so I can go home. Sound familiar?" Her tone is joking, mostly because she's still not sure she believes it herself. "Before we go into details, though, what've you got to order?"* May 08 19:43:12 <HashiBot> <Tempest> >Select a drink category: **Alcoholic drink** ; **Soft drink** ; **Hot drink** ; **Cocktails** May 08 19:44:21 <HashiBot> <Jayhawker> A little early in the morning for booze, so, probably a hot drink. May 08 19:45:14 <Hebizuka> < Bar - Hot drinks > May 08 19:45:14 <Hebizuka> > Cup of coffee, black - 5 P$ for 1 cup / ntri: 14 ntri, 48 wtr + effect (Agility+1, Alertness increase for 10 turns, Fatigue -4.0%) May 08 19:45:14 <Hebizuka> > *Cup of coffee, cappucino - 15 P$ for 1 cup / ntri: 50 ntri, 44 wtr + effect (Agility+1, Alertness+ for 10 turns, Fatigue -4.0%) May 08 19:45:14 <Hebizuka> > Cup of green tea - 10 P$ for 1 cup / ntri: 0 ntri, 49 wtr + effect (Agility+1 for 5 turns, Fatigue -1.0%) May 08 19:45:14 <Hebizuka> > Cup of black tea - 10 P$ for 1 cup / ntri: 0 ntri, 350 wtr + effect (Agility+1 for 8 turns, Fatigue -0.5%) May 08 19:45:14 <Hebizuka> > *Cup of hot cocoa - 10 P$ for 1 cup / ntri: 145 ntri, 34 wtr May 08 19:45:49 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _Since the barkeep offers you a drink, the first you order will cost 0._ May 08 19:47:08 <HashiBot> <Jayhawker> (( What does the * signify? )) May 08 19:48:03 <HashiBot> <Tempest> (( The stars are drinks which are uniquely available in bars. May 08 19:48:11 <HashiBot> <Tempest> (( Everything else can be found in the wild. May 08 19:50:45 <HashiBot> <Jayhawker> *"It's probably out of season, but a hot chocolate doesn't sound bad right now."* May 08 19:51:20 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Barkeep]** One hot cocoa comin' right up. You know what, that's a hell of a strange story. I had the feeling they did weird things in that laboratory they got in town, but I had no idea they brought the dead back to life. May 08 19:52:51 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Barkeep]** I did hear of something along the lines of what you describe. There's this old religious story that talks about a special chosen one guy and four artifacts. I don't remember it in full, it's been a while since I last visited a shrine maiden. They often remind people of the story. Said it's been hundreds and hundreds of years since they're waiting for Mr Chosen One to show up. May 08 19:53:07 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _He puts two and two together... But the thought amuses him._ May 08 19:53:21 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Barkeep]** Would be funny if it was you! Here, there's your cocoa. May 08 19:57:28 <HashiBot> <Jayhawker> *The notion that it's apparently a pretty popular myth at least confirms her suspicions that she actually kicked the bucket... or this is a very elaborate hoax. She takes her drink, deciding not to tend to it just yet. "See, that's the thing. Dr. Gage over there told me that there's this Administrator person... and that this Administrator person calls me a 'Contestant'. It's kinda wicked if you ask me."* May 08 20:03:38 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Barkeep]** I'll be damned. You actually spoke to the Doc? We see him once a year at best... This is all very interesting, come to think of it. Tell you what. You probably wonder yourself if this is all true, right? You should try meeting the shrine maidens in Semitas. I'm sure they'll be able to tell you more. They'll speak about the prophecy - they'll talk your ear out about anything Angelic in nature, really... May 08 20:04:47 <HashiBot> <Tempest> <M03: Objective 2 is complete.> May 08 20:04:59 <HashiBot> <Tempest> <M03: Received a new objective.> May 08 20:05:04 <HashiBot> <Tempest> 3) Ask the shrine maiden at Semitas about information regarding the Cardinal Amulets. May 08 20:06:25 * Lunar_Rabbit (gunsmithkit@StormBit-1a5gdt.a25v.5dsb.030a.2602.IP) has joined May 08 20:10:31 <HashiBot> <Jayhawker> *"Well, that all sounds good... and a little deep. Hey, I appreciate you standing around to talk to me. I mean, not like there's a whole lot else going on, but ya'know." Snrk. "Okay, so I guess I should try and find my way there soon. Do you mind if I take the cocoa with me? Apparently people are waiting for me."* May 08 20:11:22 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Barkeep]** No problem at all, it's your drink. May 08 20:11:25 <HashiBot> <Tempest> [Food] Beverage - Cup of hot cocoa. 145 ntri, 34 wtr May 08 20:11:45 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _The barkeep hands you a seal for the cup, so that you may carry it in your inventory if you don't wish to drink it right now._ May 08 20:17:42 <HashiBot> <Jayhawker> *Jude smiles and takes the covered drink, placing it in her backpack.* May 08 20:17:47 <HashiBot> <Tempest> [Backpack / Main] 1.03 /30 May 08 20:17:59 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Barkeep]** So you're heading out to Semitas, then? May 08 20:19:43 <HashiBot> <Jayhawker> *"Yeah, I guess that's probably the next step. I tried getting a job at the Bureau but that didn't work out, so I figure I should keep moving."* May 08 20:20:04 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Barkeep]** Alright then. Stay safe out there, zebra girl. And come back soon when you get a few coins to spend! May 08 20:20:16 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _>Where to?_ May 08 20:22:01 <HashiBot> <Jayhawker> *"You can count on it, man. Have a good one." Leaving the bar, Jude will backtrack to the town center to check the map again and make sure she hasn't missed anything that might be worthwhile to visit.* May 08 20:23:36 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _You spend the four turns required to move back to the square center. Once there, you read the town map again._ May 08 20:23:38 <HashiBot> <Tempest> Facilities in the Arnett Social Square: SS Center (you are here!) - Bank - Hiring Bureau - Bar (The Bolt Face) - Restaurant (Diner - Bill's Burgers) - Takeout stand - Shooting range - Library May 08 20:23:44 <HashiBot> <Tempest> Other areas that can be accessed from here: Hospital - Residential area - Shop sector (linked to Special facility)- Town entrance (linked to Town Generator) May 08 20:28:52 <HashiBot> <Jayhawker> *Nothing really seems immediately useful, so Jude makes her way over towards the town entrance, figuring she might bump into someone who knows their way around outside there.* May 08 20:30:18 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _You travel all the way to the Town Entrance, not meeting anyone willing to talk on the way. The trip lasts 7 more rooms, at the end of which you reach the Town Gate, the part of the Town Entrance that is guarded. Here, you see two humans with weapons and badges.

BANG!_ May 09 00:27:07 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _The skull finally cracks open like an overly ripe fruit, and the lead you sent made its way directly into the brain case. If there ever was any doubt he's dead, it's now all gone._ May 09 00:27:16 <Hebizuka> You killed an amanozako with your S&W Model 10.

The Amanozako's body cannot be looted - as he carried nothing of use and you cannot, yet, do anything to the body to make it useful._ May 09 00:30:29 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _So, all that's left to do is to check the next rooms._ May 09 00:30:36 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _Don't forget to not leave your NVGs on._ May 09 00:32:21 <Hebizuka> [Next rooms] Left: Armory room, forsaken // Front: Library wing, disaffected // Right: Warehouse room, abandoned May 09 00:33:11 <HashiBot> <Jayhawker> *Jude removes her goggles as she makes her way to the right exit.* May 09 00:33:18 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _NVGs switched off!_ May 09 00:35:42 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _A warehouse room, with its characteristic industrial shelves and crates lined up. Once upon a time, this was a valuable storage space area. Nowadays, it's just another room in the UA, empty and devoid of much use besides as a road... Except for an object that hasn't been taken. There is some kind of **blueprint** rolled up in the corner of a storage box._ May 09 00:38:45 <HashiBot> <Jayhawker> *Jude walks over and grabs the blueprint to examine it.

She tops off the SKS with 5 cartridges from her vest, and takes 1 .38 Spl from there along with the extra 3 from her packpack to refill the M10.* May 09 00:47:40 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _You spent a turn to drop your bag on the floor._ May 09 00:48:27 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _Reloading the Model 10: 2 turns.

There, you find desks, chairs, computers, fixed cameras and microphones. A bunch of electronic equipment that hasn't been removed from the room because it's presumably too heavy to move - or not valuable enough, perhaps. Fortunately for you, there are items that haven't been picked up yet - some **ammunition**, and **ANOTHER interesting, but now familiar, object.**_ May 09 00:56:41 <HashiBot> <Jayhawker> *Pretty used to this process by now, Jude inspects the ammo.
