From Mazeworld

Nov 30 13:48:15 <Hebizuka> [Session start!] Nov 30 13:49:26 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _Welcome back to the Mazes, Reina Miyako-Knight. On the last session, you reached the center of Intersection 18, and you were about to check out the currently open shops and services. You currently have no active main quest, and one active sidequest (S1-2)._ Nov 30 13:49:50 <HashiBot> <Twib> I've also been travelling pretty far, so how tired am I feeling right now? Nov 30 13:51:30 <Hebizuka> < INTERSECTION 18 - MAP > Nov 30 13:51:30 <Hebizuka> Open 24/7: Rest stop - Takeout stand - Public toilets - Public showers Nov 30 13:51:30 <Hebizuka> Currently open: Restaurant [Diner], Library Nov 30 13:51:30 <Hebizuka> EXITS Nov 30 13:51:30 <Hebizuka> North: Semitas (ANG) Nov 30 13:51:30 <Hebizuka> West: Joliet Sector (LE) Nov 30 13:51:30 <Hebizuka> East: No exit Nov 30 13:51:30 <Hebizuka> South: Novysera (DMN) Nov 30 13:52:12 <HashiBot> <Tempest> [Fatigue: 36.5%] Nov 30 13:52:24 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _You can still push forwards for a bit._ Nov 30 13:52:56 <HashiBot> <Twib> You know what? I've never actually /been/ into the public showers. Nov 30 13:53:13 <HashiBot> <Twib> I'll stop in and take a quickie - and maybe a quickie, if there's any pretty lads to play with. Nov 30 13:55:41 <HashiBot> <Twib> I hear they increased the water pressure of the showers, so it's probably way more relaxing. Nov 30 13:55:51 <HashiBot> <Twib> Maybe even doubly relaxing than before! Nov 30 13:56:16 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _4 rooms later, and you reach the I-18 public showers. This is a very simple room, with temporary lockers for leaving your stuff in, and eight shower cabins. The room is damp, and reeks of residual body odors, but in a pinch, it works... At this time of the day (it's 9:50 AM), there isn't anybody else in the public showers._ Nov 30 14:00:20 <HashiBot> <Twib> Booooooooo, but fine. Everything I own goes into a locker, and I'm showering with the stall door open, just to make damn sure none of my goodies get stolen. Nov 30 14:00:38 <HashiBot> <Twib> And if my goodies get shown, well, that's just a plus. Come ooooon hot water! Nov 30 14:00:38 <HashiBot> <Tempest> Toss me a 1d8*2 Nov 30 14:00:49 <HashiBot> Command sent from Discord by Twib: Nov 30 14:00:49 <HashiBot> @roll 1d8*2 Nov 30 14:00:49 <MazeBot> HashiBot: 6:3*2 Nov 30 14:01:43 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _You spend 6 turns showering. The pressure does seem higher than you remember. A good deal more relaxing._ Nov 30 14:01:47 <HashiBot> <Tempest> [Stress: 0.2% (-1.2)] Nov 30 14:20:41 <HashiBot> <Twib> Alright. And I suppose I'll - wait, my next stop is fucking Semitas. Nov 30 14:20:48 <HashiBot> <Twib> Nope, nooooooooooooooope. Nov 30 14:20:57 <HashiBot> <Twib> I'm resting up here and making sure I'm battle ready. Nov 30 14:20:59 <HashiBot> <Twib> Because fuck that. Nov 30 14:21:10 <HashiBot> <Twib> To the pit stop for a rent-a-bed. Nov 30 14:25:18 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _8 rooms later, and you leave the public showers for the I-18 rest stop. You reach the entrance lobby - a bored-looking human male is at the desk, obviously playing Solitaire on the computer._ Nov 30 14:26:27 <HashiBot> <Twib> "Heeey there, handsome~" Reina begins, gently resting her elbows, and her breasts, atop the beaten up desk. "Don't suppose you have a little extra room for a lonely gal?" Nov 30 14:28:02 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Rest stop owner]** _<Very sassy.>_ I've got nothing but free rooms. Nobody ever stops here usually... not at almost 10 in the morning, that's for sure. How many nights... or rather... days did you want? Nov 30 14:29:12 <HashiBot> <Twib> "Just the one, and I was hoping for a complimentary bed warmer." Nov 30 14:30:57 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Rest stop owner]** _Ugh._ I can bring you an extra bedsheet if you REALLY need it. That'll be 100 P$. Nov 30 14:31:41 <HashiBot> <Twib> "Think you can knock it down to 90? Since nobody ever stops here, usually." Nov 30 14:32:16 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Rest stop owner]** Lady, no offense,but if I had to give discounts like that all the time, I'd be out of a job. Nov 30 14:33:05 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _You can insist if you want, and I'll make you do an Easy negotiation check._ Nov 30 14:33:42 <HashiBot> <Twib> Reina pouts, exposing her full, plush lips, and more of her cleavage for good measure. "Pretty please with a cherry on top~?" Nov 30 14:33:46 <HashiBot> <Twib> I'm insistin'. Nov 30 14:34:49 <HashiBot> <Tempest> Toss a 2d6. Success on 7 or more. Nov 30 14:36:04 <HashiBot> Command sent from Discord by Twib: Nov 30 14:36:04 <HashiBot> @roll 2d6 Nov 30 14:36:04 <MazeBot> HashiBot: 4 Nov 30 14:36:09 <HashiBot> <Twib> WOMP WOMP. Nov 30 14:36:35 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _[Negotiation check FAILED!] The rest stop owner stares and squints at you. He repeats the words: "One hundred."_ Nov 30 14:37:58 <HashiBot> <Twib> "Well, can't win them all." 100 outta the bag for this shithead. Nov 30 14:39:31 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _2920 P$ remaining in the inventory._ Nov 30 14:39:53 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Rest stop owner]** Here's your key. Your room is 104. It's straight ahead. Nov 30 14:40:06 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _You have 24 hours of room usage left._ Nov 30 14:40:20 <HashiBot> <Twib> Me, bed, sleep. Nov 30 14:40:30 <HashiBot> <Twib> I just spent like an ENTIRE DAY up and murdering dragons Nov 30 14:41:00 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _4 rooms later, you land in the bedroom - which smells old, but the bed is comfortable at least._ Nov 30 14:41:25 <HashiBot> <Tempest> Long rest? Nov 30 14:41:31 <HashiBot> <Twib> Long rest me baby Nov 30 14:41:37 <HashiBot> <Tempest> Toss a 1d6. Nov 30 14:42:52 <HashiBot> Command sent from Discord by Twib: Nov 30 14:42:52 <HashiBot> @roll 1d6 Nov 30 14:42:52 <MazeBot> HashiBot: 4 Nov 30 14:43:43 <HashiBot> <Tempest> You will sleep 8 hours and heal 32% Fatigue. Do you want more? Nov 30 14:45:41 <HashiBot> <Twib> Maaaybe just a little more. Nov 30 14:45:46 <HashiBot> Command sent from Discord by Twib: Nov 30 14:45:47 <HashiBot> @roll 1d6 Nov 30 14:45:47 <MazeBot> HashiBot: 1 Nov 30 14:45:53 <HashiBot> <Tempest> 10 hours and 40% Fatigue. Nov 30 14:46:11 <HashiBot> <Tempest> This would completely heal all of your Fatigue. Sleeping any more would not be efficient. Nov 30 14:46:15 <HashiBot> <Tempest> Is this OK? Nov 30 14:46:48 <HashiBot> <Twib> Peeerfect! Nov 30 14:46:57 <HashiBot> <Twib> And it leaves me for night-travelling, too. Nov 30 14:47:01 <HashiBot> <Tempest> Zzz... Like the night animal you've become, you fall asleep in the day. Nov 30 14:48:40 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _When you wake up, the clock shows 7:50 PM. You feel fully energized._ Nov 30 14:48:52 <HashiBot> <Tempest> [Pain Sensitivity: 70% (-10)] Nov 30 14:49:18 <HashiBot> <Twib> Alright. Nov 30 14:49:25 <HashiBot> <Twib> Time to make my return trip to Semitas. Nov 30 14:49:29 <HashiBot> <Twib> Ahahahahaha, oooooh boy. Nov 30 14:50:40 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _Do you wish to leave immediately for the North exit? Your room key will be returned automatically._ Nov 30 14:52:20 <HashiBot> <Twib> Yes. Nov 30 14:53:12 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _After a good night- er, day of rest, you leave, dropping your room key on the counter on your way out. You move 11 rooms to North Street 3, facing the exit North which leads to Semitas. Which traveling style do you want?_ Nov 30 14:53:38 <HashiBot> <Twib> Skip Travel. I'm loaded and have no need to scavenge through the UA. Nov 30 14:54:06 <HashiBot> <Tempest> Fair enough. Nov 30 14:54:08 <HashiBot> Command sent from Discord by Tempest: Nov 30 14:54:09 <HashiBot> @roll 1d21+9 Nov 30 14:54:09 <MazeBot> HashiBot: 30:21+9 Nov 30 14:54:21 <Hebizuka> You will trip skip through 30 rooms. Is this OK? Nov 30 14:54:44 <HashiBot> <Twib> Yup. Nov 30 14:56:20 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _You slink your way through the UA, uninterested in anything that comes on your long way to Semitas... 30 rooms have been skipped. 2 hours and a half later..._ Nov 30 14:56:42 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _You reach the town of Semitas once again. It's 10:20 PM. You're still feeling pretty good and energized, although that's soon coming to an end._ [Fatigue: 4.1%] Nov 30 14:57:18 <HashiBot> <Tempest> [ANG Reputation: +8] _There are no objections to you entering the room. Do you want to skip straight to the social square center?_ Nov 30 14:58:12 <HashiBot> <Twib> Yup. But I'm flauntng the Amulet the entiiiire way there. Nov 30 14:59:17 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _8 rooms later, you find yourself in the social square center. It's late evening, activity is dying down, but shops and services are still active and serving clients._ Nov 30 14:59:22 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _Do you want to take a look at the town map?_ Nov 30 15:00:32 <HashiBot> <Twib> Yes please. Nov 30 15:01:25 <Hebizuka> < SEMITAS - TOWN MAP > Nov 30 15:01:25 <Hebizuka> Food production: Heaven Farm Nov 30 15:01:25 <Hebizuka> Water production: Natural water processing unit Nov 30 15:01:25 <Hebizuka> Residential areas: 2 Nov 30 15:01:25 <Hebizuka> Social square facilities: Bank, Hiring bureau, Bar (E4), Restaurant (D7) [Trattoria], Takeout stand. Nov 30 15:01:25 <Hebizuka> The bar is called _The Demigods’ Ice Box_. Nov 30 15:01:25 <Hebizuka> The Trattoria is called _Angel Noodles_. Nov 30 15:01:25 <Hebizuka> Shops: 3 individual (Style shop, Delicatessen, Weapon shop) Nov 30 15:01:25 <Hebizuka> Special facility: Cardinal Shrine Nov 30 15:02:29 <HashiBot> <Twib> Well, first things first, let's head to the Weapon Shop. Nov 30 15:03:48 <HashiBot> <Twib> And then... And then I can decide whether or not to go to the Shrine. Nov 30 15:04:40 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _9 rooms later, and you're in the angelic town's shop hub, and then the weapon shop._ Nov 30 15:05:02 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _There are a couple of patrons discussing with the shop owner._ Nov 30 15:05:31 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _You no longer feel energized._ [Fatigue: 5.8%] [Pain Sensitivity: 80%] Nov 30 15:06:04 <HashiBot> <Twib> "Hey, shopkeep. Got any 12 gauge flechette or silencers?" Nov 30 15:07:04 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Patron #2]** ... but I still think that a nice flat blue color would look really nice. Nov 30 15:07:20 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Patron #1]** No, no, dude, this just wouldn't work, it'd make it look like a toy. You gotta go shiny stainless steel. Nov 30 15:07:56 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Shop owner]** Sorry boys, I'd love to continue this riveting discussion but I need to tend to this lady over there. Hi, good evening. 12 gauge silencers and flechette? I'll go check if I have that. Nov 30 15:09:48 <HashiBot> <Twib> "If you're talking about what sex toy colors you want to get for your significant other, handsomes, I do suggest the stainless steel. It really catches the light, especially when it's all wet." Nov 30 15:10:29 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Patron #1]** ... We were talking about the finish for this revolver. Nov 30 15:10:59 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _He shows you what appears to be a S&W Model 500. The other patron adds enthusiastically: "Eight and three-quarter inches!"_ Nov 30 15:11:15 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _It's PROBABLY not helping you think it's not a sex toy._ Nov 30 15:13:08 <HashiBot> <Twib> "I don't know, that still looks like a sex toy." Nov 30 15:13:26 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _#2 pffts and giggles. #1 rolls his eyes and sighs._ Nov 30 15:13:46 <HashiBot> <Twib> "How does it go again? 'Nothing like slamming a a bullet into a tight, lubed up chamber?'" Nov 30 15:14:06 <HashiBot> <Twib> "6 rounds, more than enough to satisfy any woman who moves?" Nov 30 15:16:15 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Shop owner]** Sorry, I'm sold out on 12 gauge flechette and I don't have any 12 gauge silencers. Do you still want to look at what I have? Nov 30 15:19:16 <HashiBot> <Twib> "Nah, it's fine. But before I go... " Reina takes another look at Patron #2, clearly checking them out. "You, what's your name?" Nov 30 15:19:33 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Patron #2]** What? Huh? Nov 30 15:20:32 <HashiBot> <Twib> "Come on, when a pretty girl asks for your name, you don't go 'huh'. You give 'em your name, and your number." Nov 30 15:20:47 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Patron #2]** Uh... Nov 30 15:21:06 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Patron #1]** Man, you always lose your shit when a pretty girl's talking to you. Cmon, let's go, you're useless. Nov 30 15:21:24 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _#1 is practically dragging the other guy out of the store. The shop owner smiles and shakes his head._ Nov 30 15:21:49 <HashiBot> <Twib> "Don't suppose they're regulars you know the names of? His buddy there seemed just a little upset getting ignored." Nov 30 15:22:32 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Shop owner]** The awkward one is called Grant. Other dude, I don't know, I think it's a friend of his from out of town. Don't worry about Grant, he's nice but very, very, er... Simple. _<He's trying to sound polite.>_ Nov 30 15:23:06 <HashiBot> <Twib> "Hey, I don't mind simple. Makes it easier to get to the fun stuff." Nov 30 15:23:28 <HashiBot> <Twib> "I'll buy something if you give me his number." Nov 30 15:23:28 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Shop owner]** No, I mean, I think he's totally unaware of any of those things. _<Wince>_ Nov 30 15:23:42 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Shop owner]** Oh, I don't have his number, I'm sorry. I don't really keep that sort of information. Nov 30 15:23:51 <HashiBot> <Twib> "Oh honey you juset keep revving my engine. I love - oh, pooey." Nov 30 15:23:56 <HashiBot> <Twib> "Well, maybe next time." Nov 30 15:24:14 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Shop owner]** Sorry that I couldn't help you. I know the pain of looking for something in particular and not finding it for sale... Nov 30 15:24:30 <HashiBot> <Twib> "Ah - actually, don't suppose I can leave my number here, so you can give it to him?" Nov 30 15:24:39 <HashiBot> <Twib> "I can't let a handsome guy like that stay a virgin." Nov 30 15:24:40 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Shop owner]** Oh nonono. I can't do that. Nov 30 15:24:55 <HashiBot> <Twib> "Man, everyone in Semitas is boring. Laters." Nov 30 15:24:58 <HashiBot> <Twib> To the shriiiine. Nov 30 15:28:13 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _The shrine is just two rooms away. You find yourself in the Semitas shrine once more. The altar room is very quiet, but despite that, three shrine maidens are present in the room. One of them appears to be asleep on a chair, another is cleaning the altar with a rag, and the third is counting money in the donation box._ Nov 30 15:28:23 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Shrine maiden #3]** 67, 68, 69, 70... Nov 30 15:29:34 <HashiBot> <Twib> "Hi there. I heard there was a magic shop here?" Nov 30 15:29:45 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Shrine maiden #3]** This way. Nov 30 15:29:58 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _Without even looking at you, she points you to the door that leads to the magic shop, just one room east._ Nov 30 15:30:02 <HashiBot> <Twib> The Amulet is nice and proudly displayed on my body, but I doubt they'll actually sense anything from it." Nov 30 15:30:09 <HashiBot> <Twib> To the magic shop. Nov 30 15:30:25 <HashiBot> <Twib> Let's just do this as professionally as possible.' Nov 30 15:31:02 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _The magic shop is staffed by one more shrine maiden, who also doesn't look like she has seen any clients in hours and hours._ Nov 30 15:31:41 <HashiBot> <Twib> "Hi there, gorgeous. Got anything useful for a tanuki like me?" Nov 30 15:32:26 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Shop maiden]** Oh, gosh, a customer! Hi! Goodness, what time is it? Nov 30 15:33:12 <HashiBot> <Twib> "Night time! I heard that there was a scary accident a while ago, so I wanted to come when there was less people. Sorry for making your job a little harder." Nov 30 15:33:34 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Shop maiden]** Oh, darn, it's only 10:20 PM?... Nov 30 15:34:41 <HashiBot> <Twib> "Yeah, night shifts suck. Maybe I can get a coffee for you, if it'll help?" Nov 30 15:34:50 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Shop maiden]** I really hate evening shift... It's so boring! Thank you for dropping by to make it a little more exciting. And, yeah, there was some kind of crazy incident awhile ago... Nov 30 15:35:11 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Shop maiden]** We're all very sad for our colleague that was killed during that incident. Nov 30 15:35:38 <HashiBot> <Twib> "Sorry if I'm bringing up bad memories - but your wares, for now?" Nov 30 15:35:50 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Shop maiden]** Oh, yes yes. One moment! Nov 30 15:38:44 <Hebizuka> < Semitas Magic Shop - Products for sale > Nov 30 15:38:44 <Hebizuka> All items weigh 1 unit unless specified otherwise Nov 30 15:38:44 <Hebizuka> <Basic inventory> Nov 30 15:38:44 <Hebizuka> Small healing elixir - 300 P$ Nov 30 15:38:44 <Hebizuka> Small mending elixir - 300 P$ Nov 30 15:38:44 <Hebizuka> Small haste elixir - 300 P$ Nov 30 15:38:44 <Hebizuka> Mindfulness elixir - 900 P$ Nov 30 15:38:44 <Hebizuka> (Youkai only) protection elixir - 1000 P$ Nov 30 15:38:44 <Hebizuka> <Extended inventory> Nov 30 15:38:44 <Hebizuka> Locked: You need **4 Angelic Soul Influence** to access this inventory Nov 30 15:38:44 <Hebizuka> <Awesome inventory> Nov 30 15:38:44 <Hebizuka> Locked: You need **5 Angelic Soul Influence** to access this inventory Nov 30 15:39:29 <HashiBot> <Twib> "So, what's the Protection Elixir do? Gotta be some heavy stuff if you want a grand for a drink." Nov 30 15:39:45 <Hebizuka> [Magic item] (Angelic) Protection elixir - (Youkai only) Armor Class increased by 1 tier for 50 turns - Weight: 1 Nov 30 15:39:51 <Hebizuka> _Event line displayed for information purposes only._ Nov 30 15:41:33 <HashiBot> <Twib> "I WANT THAT." Nov 30 15:41:51 <HashiBot> <Twib> 1000 smackers for power armor? Hell yes. Nov 30 15:42:10 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Shop maiden]** Oh my, a sale! My first sale! Nov 30 15:42:28 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Shop maiden]** _<Realized what she just said. Sheepishly covers her mouth.> ...That... will be one thousand, please._ Nov 30 15:46:31 <HashiBot> <Twib> "Want a little tip to go with your first sale? Just to make it memorable?" Nov 30 15:46:54 <HashiBot> <Twib> I'll plop down the thousand, of course, but I go deliberately slowly, showing her I have more where that came from. Nov 30 15:47:18 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _Without a thought, the shrine maiden takes the cash, drops you the protection elixir on the counter, and listens in on._ Nov 30 15:47:23 <Hebizuka> [Magic item] (Angelic) Protection elixir - (Youkai only) Armor Class increased by 1 tier for 50 turns - Weight: 1 Nov 30 15:47:53 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _1920 P$ remaining in the inventory._ Nov 30 15:50:44 <HashiBot> <Twib> "Er - well, I meant like, money tip, not advice tip - but I can give you the latter if that's what you'd like instead." Nov 30 15:51:23 <HashiBot> <Twib> "Not sure if it's helpful, since, well - we're in the opposite sorts of employment, if you catch my drift." Nov 30 15:53:26 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Shop maiden]** ...So what's your advice? Nov 30 15:54:22 <HashiBot> <Twib> "You and your kimono are both too high strung." Nov 30 15:55:04 <HashiBot> <Twib> "Do you mind if I lay hands on you? Just to point out where you could wear your kimono better." Nov 30 15:56:08 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Shop maiden]** Eep. Yes. Yes. I mind. A lot. Nov 30 15:56:15 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Shop maiden]** Let's not, okay?... Nov 30 15:58:52 <HashiBot> <Twib> "Alright, then I'll do this with hover hands. Sorry if it's awkward." Reina begins to gesture to the other girl's entire body, first starting with the obi. "You look pretty young, and pretty pretty, so the whole prim and proper look isn't going to be helpful. Having your clothes just a taaad askew, when you're on Public Relations duties instead of actual ceremonies with Heaven LTD., make you more approachable." Nov 30 16:01:21 <HashiBot> <Twib> "Maybe it's because Divus Nitor is next to a youkai town, but the shrine maidens there are both professional when amongst Angelics, and casual when with us youkai." Nov 30 16:01:47 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Shop maiden]** Huh? Is that so? I didn't -- Ah? ... Nov 30 16:02:06 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Shop maiden]** W-wait, wait, I'm just on magic shop duty... Nov 30 16:02:47 <HashiBot> <Twib> "And magic shop duty is really important! With a good and popular shopkeep, it can really help supplement a shrine's income." Nov 30 16:03:32 <HashiBot> <Twib> "I saw your superior outside counting every coin from the donation box, and she seemed really stressed out, too. Shrines shouldn't have to squabble for every last coin like a struggling business." Nov 30 16:04:39 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Shop maiden]** W-well. We're all pretty stressed out because one of ours has been shot recently... The girl you saw counting coins is her replacement. It's very hard to come behind a colleague that just got murdered, you know?... Nov 30 16:05:49 <HashiBot> <Twib> "Yeah, I've been that person before. And the fact that there was a crime makes everyone shy away for a while." Nov 30 16:06:23 <HashiBot> <Twib> "Unfortunately, that's why it's even more important to keep up a smiling and energetic face. Things only are normal when you convince people they are." Nov 30 16:06:41 <HashiBot> <Twib> "You're doing a good job there - pretty excited to sell something for the first time, huh?" Nov 30 16:06:58 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Shop maiden]** Ah... Y-you're right! Never know when a customer might show up! Even in hardships! Gosh, I'm so sorry, I have been straying from what was the right thing to do. Nov 30 16:07:11 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Shop maiden]** Thank you, miss! I'll do my best now! Nov 30 16:09:12 <HashiBot> <Twib> "Of course. And, I'm sorry, but I never even got your name or your number! I'm Ray - but that's just my working name. And you?" Nov 30 16:09:21 <HashiBot> <Twib> What does this little cinnamon roll look like~?

Everyone just calls me F. I'm not allowed to give out my phone number, though. Sorry... Nov 30 16:13:43 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _Fern is a young adult human female. She has pale white skin, is short, of fairly athletic constitution, with short blonde hair, a pair of amber eyes hidden behind a pair of blue-framed glasses, and a few pock marks on the left cheek - they suggest burns, or some other old injury of that sort._ Nov 30 16:14:04 <HashiBot> <Twib> ((I need to dig my hooks in and convert her SOMEHOW.)) Nov 30 16:14:52 <HashiBot> <Twib> "Well, I hope that's not including the other shrine maidens you work with. Fern's a pretty name! Makes me think of nature, of the Outside breeze. It's exotic." Nov 30 16:16:15 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Shop maiden]**_<Embarrassed.>_ If... If you say so. Did you want anything else? Nov 30 16:17:39 <HashiBot> <Twib> "Just for you to have my number instead? I want to stay in contact! And, if anything WERE to happen again at the Shrine..." Nov 30 16:18:15 <HashiBot> <Twib> I gesture to myself - all buff, busty, and fucking loaded with shotguns. "I'm not much of a believer, but I'd hate to see you meet the Gods early. So you can call me if anything happens." Nov 30 16:19:42 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Shop maiden]** No, no thanks. Can't give my number away, sorry. Nov 30 16:20:09 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Shop maiden]** I appreciate the concern ,though, and you're free to drop by anytime you like, but... No numbers, okay? Against policy... Nov 30 16:20:44 <HashiBot> <Twib> "Well - why don't we ask the Gods, then? I'll donate, do a prayer, and we'll see if they approve." Nov 30 16:20:58 <HashiBot> <Twib> "And if they don't, then I'll get wrecked by angels and you won't have to see me again.

Nov 30 16:41:33 <HashiBot> <Twib> But let's head to the Weapon Shop first. Nov 30 16:45:50 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _7 rooms later, and you make your way there. It's late at night, and you can tell some people don't enjoy the night shift. The weapon shop owner in Arnett, however, is not one of those people. There's music - hard rock, of all things - playing inside that shop._ Nov 30 16:47:16 <HashiBot> <Twib> "Hey there, stranger. I hope you've got a collection of good things on sale!" Nov 30 16:47:28 <HashiBot> <Twib> "Things like 12 gauge flechette and silencer accessories." Nov 30 16:47:35 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Shop owner]** Hey! I might. Let me look into what I've got! Nov 30 16:49:57 <HashiBot> <Twib> "Take your time, I'm in no rush - but if you've heard anything about Elkins, I'd be interested." Nov 30 17:02:39 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Shop owner]** Sorry, no flechette and no shotgun silencers. Elkins? What, that shithole? Nov 30 17:03:13 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Shop owner]** Shit's all fucked up in Elkins. I hear they don't even have town security anymore. Won't be surprised if I hear it turned into a ghost town, or some kind of outlaw den. Nov 30 17:03:38 <HashiBot> <Twib> "Had a couple of friends there, and there's a guy who's hired me for a job." Nov 30 17:03:50 <HashiBot> <Twib> "Actually - any grenades?" Nov 30 17:04:05 <HashiBot> <Twib> "I need to practice throwing things." Nov 30 17:04:18 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Shop owner]** Lemme check. Nov 30 17:10:23 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Shop owner]** Eesh. The grenade department is pretty dry tonight. All I have is an RGD-5 grenade in the used section. So there's just one, and it's an adventurer resale. It's functional, but it's probably not going to look 100% pristine. 300 P$ if you want it. Interested? Nov 30 17:10:53 <HashiBot> <Twib> "Ehhh, too much money for my blood. Sorry, handsome." Nov 30 17:11:06 <HashiBot> <Twib> To the shooting range. Worse comes to worst, I can rent a gun and blow some steam. Nov 30 17:11:06 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Shop owner]** Alright. Did you want anything else? Nov 30 17:11:12 <HashiBot> <Twib> "Nooope." Nov 30 17:13:49 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _4 rooms later, and you reach the shooting range lobby, which works more like a waiting room than anything else. There is no-one else here - perhaps it's a bit late to go out shooting. The rental shop is open, and one room to the north._ Nov 30 17:14:38 <HashiBot> <Twib> "Mister Reeedmond, are you in here~?" I ask, stepping into the rental shop. Nov 30 17:18:29 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Rental shop owner]** Yeah, I'm in. Come in. Nov 30 17:18:51 <HashiBot> <Twib> Into the shop I go. I SHOULD probably get used to handling rifles. Nov 30 17:19:00 <HashiBot> <Twib> "Hey, hope you haven't forgotten me." Nov 30 17:19:40 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Rental shop owner]** Hey, I know you. You're the gal that showed tits on the day of that shooting competition. Hard to forget that. _<Snicker.>_ So, what can I do for you so late in the night? It's a bit late, isn't it? Nov 30 17:20:29 <HashiBot> <Twib> "I was in the area, and I figured that since nobody was around, you and I could get out some guns and shoot the breeze. Maybe shoot some other things." Nov 30 17:20:39 <HashiBot> <Twib> <Wiiiiiiink.> Nov 30 17:21:33 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Rental shop owner]** I'm not supposed to mess around with an escort while I'm on the job, you know! In any case, you're lookin' to use the range today? Did you want a rental weapon too? Nov 30 17:22:17 <HashiBot> <Twib> "Well, when are you off the job? I was thinking of renting a semi-auto rifle, just to get used to it, but it's no fun unless I got company." Nov 30 17:22:48 <HashiBot> <Twib> "Come on, I want to be a paying customer - can't ya throw me your bone here?" Nov 30 17:23:38 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Rental shop owner]** Evening shift's just started, and I'm here until tomorrow morning at 8 AM. But to tell you the truth, there is absolutely nobody else right now. Be a good customer and I'll see what I can do, okay? Nov 30 17:23:47 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Rental shop owner]** Now, let me take a look at what I've got. Nov 30 17:29:23 <Hebizuka> < Arnett shooting range - Rental shop guns > Nov 30 17:29:23 <Hebizuka> Shotgun - Izhmash Saiga-12K (12 gauge, Semi-auto) Nov 30 17:29:23 <Hebizuka> Shotgun - Benelli Nova (12 gauge, Pump-action) Nov 30 17:29:23 <Hebizuka> Auto pistol - IMI Micro Uzi (9x19mm, Semi/Full) Nov 30 17:29:23 <Hebizuka> Combat rifle - Norinco QBZ-03 (5.8x42mm, Semi/Full) Nov 30 17:29:23 <Hebizuka> Pistol - IMI Desert Eagle .44 (.44 Magnum, Semi-auto) Nov 30 17:29:23 <Hebizuka> Combat rifle - Armalite AR-10 (7.62x51mm NATO, Semi/Full) Nov 30 17:29:23 <Hebizuka> Auto pistol - MAC-11 (.380 ACP, Semi/Full) Nov 30 17:29:23 <Hebizuka> Pistol - Zastava CZ99 (9x19mm, Semi-auto) Nov 30 17:29:23 <Hebizuka> Submachine gun - Izhmash PP-19 Bizon (9x18mm Makarov, Semi/Full) Nov 30 17:29:23 <Hebizuka> Conventional rifle - Al-Gi-Mec AGM-1 (9x19mm, Semi-auto) Nov 30 17:29:23 <Hebizuka> Precision rifle - SAKO TRG-42 (.300 Win Mag, Bolt-action) Nov 30 17:29:23 <Hebizuka> Precision rifle - Noreen Bad News ULR (.338 Lapua Mag, Semi-auto) Nov 30 17:31:07 <HashiBot> <Twib> "I'll rent the conventional rifle, this - AGM? And a couple mags' worth of ammo. Say, 10 or so?" Nov 30 17:33:23 <HashiBot> <Twib> "How much will that set me back?" Nov 30 17:37:27 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Rental shop owner]** Oh, that thing? Okay so. 10 P$ for accessing the range. The gun will cost 50 P$ to rent, and I can provide 3 spare magazines, 20 rounds each, free of charge. As for ammo, if you just want enough to fill the magazines, that'll be 80 rounds, so... 8 P$. All in all, if you don't want more ammo to play with, that's 68 P$. Nov 30 17:38:06 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Rental shop owner]** If you're gonna be here a while, and if I were you, I'd just take a case of 500 rounds and blast it all until I'm done. Nov 30 17:38:25 <HashiBot> <Twib> "Oh, wow, that's incredibly cheap, actually." Nov 30 17:38:42 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Rental shop owner]** Training should be cheap. Everyone should spend the money to be better. Nov 30 17:38:46 <HashiBot> <Twib> "Buuuut - is 500 rounds what I'll need to get you to join the stall with me, handsome?" Nov 30 17:39:17 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Rental shop owner]** I don't think anyone else will show up, and I'll be happy to help you out with the guns if that's what you'd like. 500 is just a suggestion to make it last a little longer. Nov 30 17:39:43 <HashiBot> <Twib> "Five hundred it is. You know, usually I'm the one who's getting paid. Ring me up, Redmond." Nov 30 17:42:23 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Rental shop owner]** 10 for the range, 50 for the gun, and 50 for the ammo. That'll be 110 P$. Nov 30 17:42:52 <HashiBot> <Twib> "Here you are." Another 110 down the drain, but I'm pretty sure I'll make it back eventually. Nov 30 17:43:20 <HashiBot> <Twib> And, you know, it WOULD be nice to be able to just grab a gun on the ground and know how to use it. Nov 30 17:44:26 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Rental shop owner]** I understand. That's what we're here for. Nov 30 17:45:12 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _1810 P$ remaining in the inventory. The rental shop owner takes the gun, mags, and a metal case full of ammo, containing your 500 rounds, and invites you to follow him one room to the north, to one of the shooting lane rooms._ Nov 30 17:46:25 <HashiBot> <Twib> Time to shoot more guns! Nov 30 17:49:44 <HashiBot> <Twib> "So, walk me through this - how bad's the recoil on this thing compared to a shotty? All I know is 12 gauge." Nov 30 17:51:56 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Rental shop owner]** Oh, this is just a pistol caliber. Recoil will be very gentle, it's very controllable. Not at all like the shoulder thump of a shotgun. Nov 30 17:52:13 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _Do you want to play a full shooting minigame, or do you want to do fast-mode training?_ Nov 30 17:54:24 <HashiBot> <Twib> I'll do the full training game for one magazine, and then move to Fast-Mode. Nov 30 17:54:30 <HashiBot> <Twib> Just to get a taste of it. Nov 30 17:54:43 <HashiBot> <Tempest> OK. One moment. Nov 30 17:57:50 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _The rental shop owner enters his role of rangemaster. He brings a steel target up downrange. It should be familiar to you - it's the same humanoid steel target, with the color-coded body parts._ Nov 30 17:59:02 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _Your objective is to take aim, and score as many points as possible. BODY (torso, hips) hits are 10 points. HEAD hits are 30 points. LIMB hits (arms, legs) are 4 points. EXTREMITY hits (hands, feet) are 5 points. Aiming for the very difficult WEAK POINTS (eyes, crotch) net 50 points. However, aiming at the HEAD has a FT+1 penalty, and WEAK POINT imparts an FT+2 penalty._ Nov 30 18:00:33 <HashiBot> <Twib> How do Points convert into TP again?

Can you help me aim, guide my hips?" Reina asks, obviously wagging her large, fluffy tail in the process.

We've got a large amount of wild animals that invaded the town. They mostly kept out of the social square, but they've infested the generator area, and the farm. I'm fairly sure the engineers and the farmers got killed, and since you seem to have visited this town before, you are surely aware that we have a bit of a town security problem. Nov 30 20:24:00 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Citizen]** By the way, my name is Bruce Halverson. But let's save pleasantries for later, shall we?

Nov 30 20:33:29 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _He's ready to move when you are._ Nov 30 20:34:14 <HashiBot> <Twib> "Just don't slow me down, plese."

Nov 30 20:38:50 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _One room later, and you find yourself in the Generator Facility of Elkins. You enter the control room area, and it becomes immediately obvious why this situation is very messy. The engineer that was manning the control room is dead - throat ripped out, it clearly shows that a jackal helped himself there. Besides the engineer is his weapon.

Nov 30 20:40:52 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Bruce]** I'm paying you anyway if you do this job for me. Help yourself if you think their dinky guns are of any use to you. Just remember it didn't save them. Nov 30 20:41:20 <HashiBot> <Twib> "Do you NOT see the three shotguns strapped to my body? I don't want to use them, I want to sell them."

Nov 30 20:42:36 <HashiBot> <Tempest> One moment then. Nov 30 20:43:28 <HashiBot> <Twib> "I'm just saying that trying to singlehandedly protect a dying town while also being callous enough to let some stranger completely strip the corpses for loot is not the sort of thing smart or charismatic people do." Nov 30 20:44:17 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Bruce]** They're dead, consider it part of the payment. I'm surprised no-one has looted them _yet_, so may as well make sure it goes to someone I can trust to a degree. Nov 30 20:45:01 <HashiBot> <Twib> "Yeah, well, frankly, if you weren't here I'd be butchering the corpses too for practice." Nov 30 20:45:14 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _That makes him wince._ Nov 30 20:45:39 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Bruce]** _Oh._ Well. Let's wait until we're done, okay? Go ahead and take whatever you want. The jackals are inside. I'll keep until you're ready. Nov 30 20:47:03 <HashiBot> <Twib> "Now THERE's an honest reaction. If it helps, even I'm not callous enough to eat the meat.

I don't want to be the last person who cares about this town, but that's what it comes to. Anyway, let's finish cleaning the town up. We can talk about that when we're done, since you brought it up.

Nov 30 22:56:06 <HashiBot> <Twib> It looks like I'll have to start buying regular buckshot again, though. A shame, I really liked the flechette. Nov 30 22:56:20 <HashiBot> <Tempest> Where do you want the ejected flechette to go? Nov 30 22:56:37 <HashiBot> <Twib> Back into the Backpack, so 83 Flechette total. Nov 30 22:56:47 <HashiBot> <Twib> (Ignoring the 20 in my leg LEB) Nov 30 22:56:57 <HashiBot> <Tempest> OK. Nov 30 22:57:51 <HashiBot> <Tempest> Since you're loading mixed ammo in the left tube, do you want the normal buckshot first or the Plated buckshot first? Nov 30 22:58:08 <HashiBot> <Twib> Normal first. Nov 30 22:58:13 <HashiBot> <Tempest> OK. One moment then. Nov 30 22:58:31 <HashiBot> <Twib> It doesn't matter to me, I'm just using them because it's A: not Flechette, and B: To clean out my inventory a bit. Nov 30 22:58:50 <HashiBot> <Tempest> Just gimme a sec. Nov 30 23:00:07 <HashiBot> <Twib> No worries~ Nov 30 23:02:51 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _You spent: 1 turn to set the backpack down, 1 turn to unload the KSG-12 and replace the 3 flechette shells in the backpack.

(1 turn)_ Dec 01 01:16:30 <HashiBot> <Tempest> [Fatigue: 50.2% - Tired] Dec 01 01:17:08 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Bruce]** It's finally over. Every one of those invaders are dead, now. Dec 01 01:17:14 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Bruce]** _<Whew.>_ Dec 01 01:17:32 <HashiBot> <Twib> "You are being entirely too dramatic and too proud of yourself for pest control. You're not gonna be able to protect Elkins like that." Dec 01 01:18:35 <HashiBot> <Twib> Time to butcher the warg, and maaaybe the dingo if I'm lucky. I doubt I am lucky. Dec 01 01:20:27 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _The dingo is utterly destroyed._ Dec 01 01:20:31 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _You may butcher the warg, though._ Dec 01 01:20:42 <HashiBot> <Twib> Alright, and this time I DO care about the meat. Dec 01 01:20:51 <HashiBot> <Twib> Might as well get some steaks for my trouble. Dec 01 01:20:56 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _You spent a turn doing so, gaining 1 Skill Point in Hunting._ Hunting Skill: 45.0 SP Dec 01 01:20:58 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _One moment._ Dec 01 01:21:51 <HashiBot> <Tempest> Roll 1d61+14 Dec 01 01:22:55 <HashiBot> Command sent from Discord by Twib: Dec 01 01:22:55 <HashiBot> @roll 1d61+14 Dec 01 01:22:56 <MazeBot> HashiBot: 26:12+14 Dec 01 01:23:07 <HashiBot> <Twib> Mmmh, only about one fourth. Dec 01 01:23:09 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _You chop the warg's remains ..._ Dec 01 01:23:56 <HashiBot> <Twib> If I get 5, I can't complain. Dec 01 01:24:13 <Hebizuka> [Food] Meat - Raw game meat, warg - 126+1d126 ntri - 25% Nausea (3 turns) - Weight: 1 - [Quantity: 12] Dec 01 01:25:18 <HashiBot> <Twib> Hey, I got 5. Dec 01 01:25:42 <HashiBot> <Twib> 5 into the bag it is. "You can help yourself to the meat if you'd like." Dec 01 01:26:03 <HashiBot> <Twib> "So, you pay me and I'm on my way, yes?" Dec 01 01:27:14 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Bruce]** Well, you can do that, since you've done what I've hired you for. I'd like to figure out something, though... I'd like to know why no-one is even trying to rebuild town security. There ARE people left in this town, and I want to know why I'm the only one who cares. Dec 01 01:27:35 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Bruce]** Truth be told, much as I thank you for the job, I fear that it's going to happen again next week, if we don't get run over by marauders. Dec 01 01:28:57 <HashiBot> <Twib> "Dude." Dec 01 01:29:04 <HashiBot> <Twib> "Dude you cannot be /this fucking dumb."/ Dec 01 01:29:15 <HashiBot> <Twib> "I've been here ONCE and I know why no one cares but you." Dec 01 01:29:55 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Bruce]** Oh? Why's that? Dec 01 01:31:58 <HashiBot> <Twib> "Pay me what I'm owed first, and THEN give me either a bonus on top of that or pay for the hospital bed I'm about to collapse into, since this isn't part of the job and I don't care nearly enough to offer it freely." Dec 01 01:32:14 <HashiBot> <Twib> "Even one Paraller more will be enough." Dec 01 01:34:35 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Bruce]** _<sigh>_ You want a bonus on top of that? Dec 01 01:35:08 <HashiBot> <Twib> "You certainly SAY you're the only one who cares about this town. I wanna see you put your money where my mouth is." Dec 01 01:36:07 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Bruce]** So you want me to pay you to get you to care, on top of the money you're owed for the job you just did. Dec 01 01:37:13 <HashiBot> <Twib> "Like I said. Just even one Paraller more, and not only will I tell you, I'll go around asking /just to make sure/ like you probably wanted me to do." Dec 01 01:38:06 <HashiBot> <Twib> "Prove to me YOU care by swallowing your pride with a symbolic gesture that's meaningless in the grand scheme of things. That's not too much to ask." Dec 01 01:41:04 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Bruce]** Haaa, all right. I wanted to pay you 450 P$ for this. Will you listen if I throw in 50 P$ more? Dec 01 01:41:41 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Bruce]** I simply don't have that much to spare, I'm sorry if that isn't enough. We all do what we can. Dec 01 01:41:41 <HashiBot> <Twib> "That's 49 more than what I asked for, so I certainly have no complaints." Dec 01 01:41:59 <HashiBot> <Twib> "I said /one./ You gave me /Fifty./ That is entirely on you." Dec 01 01:42:29 <HashiBot> <Twib> "But by all means, you offered so I'll take it." Dec 01 01:43:16 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Bruce]** All I want you to do -IF- you really feel like it, is to go in town, and ask around about what people think about doing town defense. The bartender, the banker, the librarian, some of the personnel at the hospital, even the clothing shop owner - they're all people I talked to about this before, but they are all reluctant. Maybe they're not talking to me because I'm local and because I'm doing it. But maybe Dec 01 01:43:16 <HashiBot> they'll talk to you. Dec 01 01:43:24 <HashiBot> <Tempest> S1-2: Objective 3 is complete. Dec 01 01:44:00 <HashiBot> <Tempest> S1-2: OPTIONAL Objective 4: Go in town, and ask the locals about town defense. Dec 01 01:44:12 <HashiBot> <Tempest> If you don't want to do objective 4, just ask Halverson to get paid. Dec 01 01:45:44 <HashiBot> <Twib> "No one wants to do town defense because Elkins is a /shithole with nothing worth defending/ and you, my friend, need to get some damn social skills shoved in your head before anyone's willing to follow your lead." Dec 01 01:46:01 <HashiBot> <Twib> "But yeah, sure, a walk around town is fine with me." Dec 01 01:46:14 <HashiBot> <Twib> "Meet you - what, at the access corridor? Your room?" Dec 01 01:48:22 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Bruce]** The access corridor should be fine. And no. I don't believe that. I believe my hometown is worth defending, if only more people cared about it. I just wish I knew why nobody is talking to me. Dec 01 01:48:34 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Bruce]** Or why nobody is talking -period- Dec 01 01:48:54 <HashiBot> <Twib> "Because /no one can have faith in you./" Dec 01 01:50:08 <HashiBot> <Twib> "Because you are ONE person appealing to a bygone era, waving a tattered flag that no one cares about BUT YOU, and you can't even FOLLOW THROUGH on your goals without just straight up buying help." Dec 01 01:51:25 <HashiBot> <Twib> "Because when the next set of bandits inevitably come either you are going to not be here and everyone will get kidnapped into slavery or just straight up murdered, OR you are going to be here, die pathetically because you are ONE MAN with no support and no skill to support yourself, and everyone will get kidnapped into slavery or just straight up get murdered." Dec 01 01:51:43 <HashiBot> <Twib> "But by all means, I can get it in writing. See you in a bit." Dec 01 01:52:18 <HashiBot> <Twib> First things first, let's go to Maurice. Dec 01 01:59:29 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _Maurice, the owner of the clothing shop in Elkins. Who probably very well remembers you._ Dec 01 01:59:35 <HashiBot> <Tempest> (( However, that will be for next episode! Dec 01 02:02:34 <Hebizuka> [Session end!]
