From Mazeworld

Dec 13 17:39:56 <Hebizuka> [Session start!] Dec 13 17:41:20 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _Welcome back to the Mazes, Reina Miyako-Knight. On the last session, you had just completed Objective 3 of Sidequest S1-2, and you were given the -optional- Objective 4 of going to town and asking a few of the locals about town defense. You are currently in the town's farm, in the south pig pen. You were planning to leave and head out to the clothing shop in town, to see someone you've met before, a certain Maurice Green, Dec 13 17:41:20 <HashiBot> owner of the shop._ Dec 13 17:41:25 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _Do you still want to head there now?_ Dec 13 17:41:49 <HashiBot> <Reina> After I've butchered all the corpses in here, farmer included, yes! Dec 13 17:42:04 <HashiBot> <Tempest> You're doing that for experience, yes? Not for the meat? Dec 13 17:42:10 <HashiBot> <Reina> Yup yup. Dec 13 17:42:21 <HashiBot> <Reina> I am all filled up on dead people's clothing, so no time to sell meat. Dec 13 17:45:09 <HashiBot> <Reina> Did what's his name, that Bruceless guy, already head out? Dec 13 17:48:17 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _You move back to the south rabbit pen, spend 1 turn to butcher the only creature that hasn't been mangled to pieces, then you move to the south chicken coop, and spend 1 turn to do the same. Then you travel back to the headmaster's office, and spend 1 turn butcher the naked, dead, throat-ripped farmer as well. The process will take a total of 10 turns and you will get 3 Skill Points in Hunting. Is that OK?_ Dec 13 17:49:28 <HashiBot> <Reina> That is correct! Dec 13 17:51:32 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _It doesn't help that you're tired and thirsty. Better fix both of those soon._ Dec 13 17:52:24 <HashiBot> <Reina> That'll be fine. There's going to be quuite a lot to drink after I'm done seeing Maurice again~ Dec 13 17:52:37 <HashiBot> <Tempest> Hunting: **48** Skill Points (+3) Dec 13 17:53:16 <HashiBot> <Reina> Actually, just how tired am I? Dec 13 17:53:46 <HashiBot> <Tempest> [Fatigue: 52.6% - Tired] Dec 13 17:54:25 <HashiBot> <Reina> Well, nothing a bit of sleep and some cola drinks won't take care of. Dec 13 17:54:45 <HashiBot> <Reina> So, first things first - any bars nearby? Or Deli stands. Dec 13 17:55:00 <HashiBot> <Reina> I'll admit, I didn't do a lot of sightseeing when I was around the first time. Dec 13 17:56:09 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _There is The Armadillo, the bar in town. No delicatessen, but you can always try the takeout stand._ Dec 13 17:56:53 <HashiBot> <Reina> I'll head to the Armadillo first. Who knows, I might find a pretty bartender to party with Maurice. Dec 13 17:59:01 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _This is a good decision, as the bartender there is one of the four people Halverson recommended you to talk to._ Dec 13 17:59:23 <HashiBot> <Reina> (He actually didn't in the previous session, so, uh.) Dec 13 18:00:31 <HashiBot> <Reina> To the Armadillo for a LOT of goddamn tea. Dec 13 18:00:38 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _You travel out of the farm and to the bar, which takes 15 turns..._ Dec 13 18:01:24 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _Ironwood effects have been exhausted._ Dec 13 18:01:37 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _Your Armor Class returns to its natural level, at C3._ Dec 13 18:03:38 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _Your throat feels very dry. You hope to get a drink soon. And what a better place to wet your whistle than the Armadillo, the local bar? Truth be told it looks like an unkempt dump. The furniture feels old, it even faintly smells old. There is generic rock music playing out of ceiling speakers, but the sound is old and crackly and muffled, as though even the speakers are hundreds of years old. You reach the bar hall, and Dec 13 18:03:38 <HashiBot> at this time of the day (9:45 AM) there aren't many patrons around._ Dec 13 18:03:51 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _The bar room - and the bartender - can be found one room to the east._ Dec 13 18:04:45 <HashiBot> <Reina> I'll step in, naturally, and take a nice long gander at the bartender. Old and busted, or young hotness? Dec 13 18:08:38 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _The barkeep is a human female. She isn't old by any means, but seems to have the baggage of experience; you don't give her much more than 35 years old. She has Asian traits, is of average height, with a slim, slender build, very short platinum blonde hair (it's probably dyed), a pair of gray eyes hidden behind sunglasses, a thin but long scar across the left eye, and a cigarette between the lips._ Dec 13 18:09:42 <HashiBot> <Reina> I don't mind a bit of dye. I mean, heaven knows I got a styling and a dye job back in Joliet. Dec 13 18:10:05 <HashiBot> <Reina> "Hey there, gorgeous! Got a drink and a rumor for a fellow gal? I could use some tea." Dec 13 18:10:40 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Barkeep]** Good morning, honey. ... _<She lifts her eyes up from her newspaper, and takes a good hard look at you. You can FEEL her stare.>_ Dec 13 18:10:57 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Barkeep]** ...Good gracious Gods, hon, what happened to you? You've got blood and guts all over you. Dec 13 18:11:53 <HashiBot> <Reina> "You know that idiot, Bruce? He hired me to do a bit of cleanup with him. Engineers and the farmer's dead, but at least there aren't any wild dogs around." Dec 13 18:12:18 <HashiBot> <Reina> "I was hoping you can point me to the public showers in a bit? I want to visit a friend of mine, but, ah, maaaybe not like this. You know?" Dec 13 18:12:35 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Barkeep]** Bruce? Bruce Halverson? That's mighty nice of you to have come all the way to our little township to do this. The tea's on me, hon. You look like you badly need it. Dec 13 18:12:46 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _She's offering you a cup of green tea for free? Want it?_ Dec 13 18:13:28 <HashiBot> <Reina> Fuck the hell yes. Dec 13 18:13:50 <Hebizuka> [Food] Beverage - Cup of green tea. 0 ntri, 50 wtr - Agility+1 for 5 turns, Fatigue -2.0%, Stress +0.2% - Weight: 1 Dec 13 18:15:32 <HashiBot> <Reina> "I love you - and where are my manners? My name's Reina. How about you, miss?" I'll place down 5 coins for another green tea, even as I chug the first cup down. Dec 13 18:15:42 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Barkeep]** The public showers are all the way near South Street 5, right before the door to the entrance area. To be honest with you, everyone in this town is tired like none other of these constant critter invasions. They happen almost every week. Dec 13 18:16:22 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Barkeep]** The name's Evelyn Smith! Formerly Evelyn Moore, but now it's Smith. That name's one of two things I have left from my ex-husband. Dec 13 18:17:31 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _You spent a turn to drink one green tea down. Ah, that hit the spot! You slap down 5 P$, and she serves you another. You have 1755 P$ remaining in the bag._ Dec 13 18:17:36 <Hebizuka> [Food] Beverage - Cup of green tea. 0 ntri, 50 wtr - Agility+1 for 5 turns, Fatigue -2.0%, Stress +0.2% - Weight: 1 Dec 13 18:17:48 <HashiBot> <Reina> Driiiiiink up. Dec 13 18:18:13 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _You spent another turn to drink that too. Just right! But you need more yet!_ Dec 13 18:18:25 <HashiBot> <Reina> "Oh, you're divorced? I gotta say, that ex of yours is a real dumbass for lettin' you get away." Dec 13 18:19:28 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Barkeep]** He was a dumbass in more ways than one. How do you think I got this? _<She points at the scar across her face.>_ Anyway, old bastard's best left where he is now, a pile of bones and gore somewhere in the UA. Dec 13 18:20:06 <HashiBot> <Reina> "I'll toast to that! Don't suppose I can buy you a drink, Eve?" Dec 13 18:20:34 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Barkeep]** -Heh!- You're something else, honey. Nobody buys me a drink, usually. I don't got nothin' against it! Dec 13 18:22:17 <HashiBot> <Reina> "What can I say, gorgeous? I'm fresh off a job and I like you. Bottle of whatever you want is on me - just toss me two more cups of green tea?" I'll place down 10 for the cups, plus whatever is necessary to pay for Eve's favorite drink. Dec 13 18:29:40 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Barkeep]** Hahah! I'll have a glass of brandy! Been a long time. Dec 13 18:29:55 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _A glass of brandy is 70 P$. Your bill comes up to 90 P$. Pay?_ Dec 13 18:30:32 <HashiBot> <Reina> Absolutely! Dec 13 18:30:57 <HashiBot> <Reina> I'll clink my first cup against Eve's glass, once she pours it out. "Cheers to women being better than men." Dec 13 18:31:26 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _1670 P$ remaining. She serves you two more cups of green tea (you know the drill, event lines are up already)._ Dec 13 18:31:44 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Barkeep]** _<Glass on cup clink>_ Ha! Cheers. Dec 13 18:33:07 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _She downs the entire glass almost in one go. You can see her feel a little buzzed._ Dec 13 18:33:50 <HashiBot> <Reina> "So, speaking of men - does Bruce do good work? Seems kinda rough, trying to protect a town all by his lonesome." Dec 13 18:34:41 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Barkeep]** Oh, man, that's all he ever does. He works for the defense of town almost every day, he only ever stops to get a day of rest once in a while. Not that it's very useful, if you ask me! Dec 13 18:35:44 <HashiBot> <Reina> "Guys get so fixated on stuff and they can never let go. Sounds like he's just trying to stroke his ego. What's he doing that's so useless, gorgeous?" Dec 13 18:36:01 <HashiBot> <Reina> During the talk, I'll drink my two green teas. I just need to take the edge off, for now. Dec 13 18:36:47 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Barkeep]** Well, you know. People talk! Lots of rumors, lots of hearsay, but from what I hear, the general consensus is that the locals, they don't like it here. Every day I hear about somebody complaining about their life here. This sucks, that's shit, no future here, no opportunities there, you get me? Dec 13 18:37:33 <HashiBot> <Reina> "It /is/ a bit of a hole. But you seem to be doin' okay, Eve." Dec 13 18:37:54 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Barkeep]** Most of them say they want to get out of this rathole. And every so often, that's exactly what happens. Some people just pack their bags, get up, and leave town never to be seen again! With the critter invasions, and those criminal chuckle-fucks that rolled into town recently, thinking they can get away with anything... Honestly I don't blame any of 'em. They don't believe in Elkins no more. Dec 13 18:38:19 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Barkeep]** Imma stay for now, but when there won't be anyone left to serve drinks to, I'll pack up and leave too. Maybe it'll be time I find a new job. Dec 13 18:39:02 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _You learned about something important... You can keep asking questions to other locals, or you may return to Bruce, who has returned to the Town Gate, to tell him about what you found._ Dec 13 18:40:36 <HashiBot> <Reina> In a bit, in a bit. I have time, after all. "What kinda criminals? Gracia Block's pretty far away, I wouldn't think anyone would try to make this a base." Dec 13 18:40:55 <HashiBot> <Reina> "Hope they're not givin' ya trouble - or at least they tip well, eh?" Dec 13 18:45:27 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Barkeep]** I dunno who they were, to be honest. Just a bunch of fuckers, I didn't try to pay attention. Just told them they'd taste this shotgun o' mine here... _<She points at the shotgun slung on her back.>_ ... if they didn't leave my establishment. Dec 13 18:45:51 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Barkeep]** I heard they tried to terrorize other shops in town, maybe you can ask around. Dec 13 18:47:48 <HashiBot> <Reina> "I /really/ should, but I just wanna ask about you." Reina puts on a long sigh, stretching out the kinks in her back and displaying her proud bosom in the process. "I'm all tuckered out, and I just wanna stay here a bit longer. Another round of drinks on me, Eve?" I'll put down another 90, for what it's worth! Dec 13 18:48:14 <HashiBot> <Reina> My two green teas and a glass of brandy. Dec 13 18:48:51 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Barkeep]** Honey, you're gonna get me drunk at this point. You sure you wanna get me drunk at almost ten in the morning? I'm not saying no, but it's risky waters. Heh. Dec 13 18:49:53 <HashiBot> <Reina> "I'm sure between the two of us, we can burn off all that alcohol outta your system. And I bet I'm giving you more business then you've seen in a bit anyways, right~?" Dec 13 18:50:35 <HashiBot> <Reina> "Don't think of it as getting drunk at ten in the morning. Think of it as taking a break!" Dec 13 18:51:42 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Barkeep]** Admittedly you're better than the light beer fools I usually get at this hour in the day... Alright, let's go for another! Dec 13 18:52:31 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _1580 P$ left in the bag. You get another two green teas, and you paid another glass of brandy for Evelyn._ Dec 13 18:52:34 <HashiBot> <Reina> Time to drink up! My two green teas to her rich brandy. Dec 13 18:53:58 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _You spent 2 turns to down two more piping hot teas..._ Dec 13 18:54:46 <HashiBot> <Reina> And my new friend~? Dec 13 18:56:16 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _Thanks to all of that tea, you no longer feel tired. Your Agility returns to +1. You do still feel thirsty though._ Dec 13 18:56:37 <HashiBot> <Tempest> [Fatigue: 48.6% - OK, on the edge of Tired] [Hydration: 416 wtr - Thirsty, on the edge of OK] Dec 13 18:57:28 <HashiBot> <Reina> Edge, off! But I do need a shower and a bed... Dec 13 18:57:41 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _Evelyn is starting to look visibly tipsy. Her cheeks are reddening._ Dec 13 18:58:01 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Barkeep]** Haha... That's the stuff right there... Never got boozed up like that so early in the morning! Dec 13 19:00:24 <HashiBot> <Reina> "Really? But you look pretty all flushed! Those /men/ never think to buy you a drink either, huh?" Dec 13 19:00:47 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Barkeep]** They're too busy being old drunkards spending their last hunting coins on beer! Dec 13 19:02:42 <HashiBot> <Reina> "And they drink the pisswater booze too, huh? That's fucking pathetic." Dec 13 19:02:52 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Barkeep]** Pansies, the lot of 'em! Dec 13 19:03:01 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _She's gotten giggly._ Dec 13 19:05:16 <HashiBot> <Reina> "Pssssssh, why waste your time serving these poor drunks? I say we blow this stand and hang out somewhere comfier." Dec 13 19:06:07 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Barkeep]** Ha, like where, hon? I'm still on duty, I gotta stay around yknow? Dec 13 19:09:20 <HashiBot> <Reina> "I was thinking we could have a little get together - you, me, some brandy, and your comfy bed, really get to know each other! Don't think you have much customers besides me, and they don't deserve ya!" Dec 13 19:11:57 <HashiBot> <Reina> "Let me show ya what women can do that men can't." Dec 13 19:13:53 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Barkeep]** Good graces, I'm not drunk enough for this... Dec 13 19:15:12 <HashiBot> <Reina> "Well, I didn't want to get you too drunk - you wouldn't remember afterwards if you were, Eve! But if a shot of liquid courage is what you need...?" Dec 13 19:15:36 <HashiBot> <Reina> Another 70, in case third time's the charm! Dec 13 19:18:31 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _She refuses, not wanting to be more than tipsy for the time being._ Dec 13 19:18:45 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Barkeep]** Hon, you should go now. It's gonna look weird if I look more drunk than the patron in front of me. Dec 13 19:22:05 <HashiBot> <Reina> "Ohhhh, alright. But offer's on the table if you ever need some release. I'll come back in a bit, let you think it over?" I don't take back the 70. It's her tip! Dec 13 19:26:34 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Barkeep]** Heh, alright. Tell you what, I might put in a good word for you. I dunno if it'll help much, since this town might fall apart any day but... hey, why not, right? Dec 13 19:26:40 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _1510 P$ remaining._ Dec 13 19:27:09 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _You tipped the barkeep 70 P$. She's going to remember that._ Dec 13 19:27:56 <HashiBot> <Reina> Alright, now to the public showers and to wash all the guts off. Dec 13 19:29:15 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _10 rooms later, you reach the public showers. You see 8 shower cabins, and they're all empty. The room is damp, as one would expect._ Dec 13 19:30:55 <HashiBot> <Reina> Into the stall, and turn the shower to full blast. Dec 13 19:31:23 <HashiBot> <Reina> Gotta get all the blood off and get ready to replace it with a whole different kind of bodily fluid. Dec 13 19:31:48 <HashiBot> <Tempest> Toss a 1d8*2 please. Dec 13 19:32:01 <HashiBot> Command sent from Discord by Reina: Dec 13 19:32:01 <HashiBot> @roll 1d8*2 Dec 13 19:32:01 <MazeBot> HashiBot: 2:1*2 Dec 13 19:32:13 <HashiBot> <Reina> Good, a quickie's all I want. Dec 13 19:32:23 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _A lightning shower which relieves 0.4% Stress._ Dec 13 19:32:39 <HashiBot> <Tempest> [Stress: 24.9% - Moderate] Dec 13 19:34:13 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _At least the blood, sweat, and fighting traces are mostly cleaned off of your body (and clothes, and gear, since you didn't strip.)_ Dec 13 19:34:27 <HashiBot> <Reina> How much TB do I have? Because I'll totally burn 2 for an Afterglow. Dec 13 19:34:29 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _Now you're just wet, clothes included, which doesn't help concealing your features very much._ Dec 13 19:34:43 <HashiBot> <Reina> That's sorta the plan there, buddy! Dec 13 19:34:45 <HashiBot> <Tempest> [Tanuki Balls: 4 /10] Dec 13 19:36:21 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _Burn 2 for Afterglow now?_ Dec 13 19:36:28 <HashiBot> <Reina> Yup yup Dec 13 19:36:52 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _Afterglow has been activated for 15 turns. At the risk of making a crass joke, now you're wet in every meaning of the term._ Dec 13 19:40:00 <HashiBot> <Reina> Good. Just the perfect wat to see Maurice. Dec 13 19:40:30 <HashiBot> <Reina> To the clothing store! Dec 13 19:46:16 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _13 rooms later, and you find yourself at the clothing shop in Elkins. A familiar face, that of Maurice Green, can be found behind the shop counter. There's nobody else in the shop at the moment. Cheesy pop music can be heard playing._ Dec 13 19:46:44 <HashiBot> <Tempest> [Fatigue: 50.9% - Tired] Dec 13 19:46:47 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _Be careful._ Dec 13 19:47:31 <HashiBot> <Reina> "Heeeeeeey there, handsome. Guess who's back~" Dec 13 19:48:11 <HashiBot> <Reina> Reina outs the charm on full blast, letting her soaked clothing emphasize every last bit of her curves as she saunters to the counter. Dec 13 19:48:16 <HashiBot> <Reina> puts* Dec 13 19:49:08 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Maurice]** _Eeep!..._ ...H-hey, Reina! What b-brings you, fancy seeing you here, ahah?... Dec 13 19:50:28 <HashiBot> <Reina> "I was in the town for some business with Bruce, and after that I thought I'd pay my man a visit!" Dec 13 19:51:22 <HashiBot> <Reina> "Ah ah ah, and not THAT kind of business, before you get any ideas. I cleared out some dogs for him, but he's not my type." Dec 13 19:55:47 <HashiBot> <Reina> "Did I shock you that much, Maurice? You were nuch more vocal that first time~" Dec 13 19:56:29 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Maurice]** Ah er- um- well -uh... _<He stammers.>_ Dec 13 19:56:43 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Maurice]** What, um, what are you looking for, then? Anything I can do to help you?... Dec 13 19:57:30 <HashiBot> <Reina> "Well, what would you like first? Business, or pleasure? 'Cause I got both in spades." Dec 13 19:57:45 <HashiBot> <Reina> "I believe in aftercare, you see." Dec 13 19:58:45 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Maurice]** B-b-business! I can't do anything else right now! ... Nothing of that sort! Dec 13 20:00:42 <HashiBot> <Reina> "Okay, okay, handsome. I wouldn't want to rush you into anything." Dec 13 20:01:07 <HashiBot> <Reina> All the clothes from 3 dead bodies come out of my pack. "Think you can buy these back? They don't fit me." Dec 13 20:09:47 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _You're about to sell the following:_ Dec 13 20:10:00 <Hebizuka> SELL Dec 13 20:10:00 <Hebizuka> Hard hat x2 - 200 P$ Dec 13 20:10:00 <Hebizuka> Technician jacket x2 - 100 P$ Dec 13 20:10:00 <Hebizuka> Technician trousers x3 - 113 P$ Dec 13 20:10:00 <Hebizuka> LBE - Dump belt x3 - 420 P$ Dec 13 20:10:00 <Hebizuka> LBE - P90 mag rig x2 - 120 P$ Dec 13 20:10:00 <Hebizuka> LBE - Hunting vest - 125 P$ Dec 13 20:10:00 <Hebizuka> Cowboy hat - 33 P$ Dec 13 20:10:00 <Hebizuka> Tank top - 5 P$ Dec 13 20:10:00 <Hebizuka> Hiking shoes - 65 P$ Dec 13 20:10:00 <Hebizuka> TOTAL: 1181 P$ Dec 13 20:10:52 <HashiBot> <Reina> "I'm not breaking the bank, am I handsome? This is even pricier than our first little date." Dec 13 20:11:27 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Maurice]** No, no no, it's fine! My coffers are full, actually... Dec 13 20:11:38 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Maurice]** Here you go. D-did you want to buy anything? Dec 13 20:11:42 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _You sold all of those clothes and LBE!_ Dec 13 20:12:01 <HashiBot> <Tempest> Backpack / Main: 72.41 /150 Dec 13 20:13:10 <HashiBot> <Reina> "You know what? I'd like to see if you have any LBE vests that'd make my breasts look better. And if your coffers are full... want to make a deposit to my 'spank bank'?" Dec 13 20:14:42 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Maurice]** _<gasp>_ L-like last time? Dec 13 20:17:10 <HashiBot> <Reina> "Absolutely like last time. It sounded like all the trouble in Elkins' gotten everyone stressed, so why not blow off some steam with me?" Dec 13 20:17:32 <HashiBot> <Reina> "But only after I take a look at the vests you have in stock. Business before pleasure, after all!" Dec 13 20:17:49 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Maurice]** Ahh... about that... you wanna know how I have so much cash in the shop reserves? That's because I've had t-tons of locals come to me and buy LBE and armor from me... Dec 13 20:18:09 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Maurice]** Arm and leg protections are selling like hot cakes, too... Probably to guard against bites and whatnot. Dec 13 20:18:53 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Maurice]** T-the strangest thing is... they rarely come back. It's like they bought all the armor and bags they could and then... went up and left town. D-do you think it has anything to do with the critter invasions?... Maybe people are fed up with it... Dec 13 20:20:59 <HashiBot> <Reina> "Between you and me, handsome? I don't think it's just critters. But let's talk about that after we're both all relaxed, okay? Stress relief helps you think better." Dec 13 20:21:52 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Maurice]** S-sure, I'll show you the LBE I have in stock...

Let me just take off the vest I have on and I'll buy the SOBR with that and the credit?" I don't wait for him to respond, of course. I just take out the things I have in my vest and set 'em aside - and undo a few of my regular clothing's buttons while I take off the vest. Dec 13 20:36:30 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Maurice]** Okay... I'll buy your vest for 250 P$, then. Is that OK?... Dec 13 20:37:02 <HashiBot> <Reina> "No problem. And then we can head to your place and I can really give you your money's worth." Dec 13 20:37:40 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _You sold your Crosman Elite competition vest for 250 P$. Your credit rises to 1435 P$. You spent 700 of that to buy a SOBR assault vest.

Dec 13 20:46:40 <HashiBot> <Reina> "I love the straps on these things, and it gives my puppies a lot more breahing room - but I bet you want me /out/ of my clothing now, huh?" Dec 13 20:46:53 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Maurice]** ... I- um... Dec 13 20:47:02 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _He blushes furiously, unable to bring himself to answer._ Dec 13 20:47:11 <HashiBot> <Reina> "Why don't we close up shop for the day and head back to your place? I can do a lot more with a shower and an actual bed." Dec 13 20:47:37 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Maurice]** I can't really close up shop, and it was r-r-really risky last time in the storage room... Dec 13 20:53:04 <HashiBot> <Reina> "Are you sure I can't convince you? I've been looking forward to this alllll day, and I was going to give you a discount for being a repeat customer." Reina bends over the shop counter to whisper into Maurice's ear, running her manicured nails down his slender face, while her other hand reaches down to play with his belt. "What do you say? You deserve a day off and to spoil yourself." Dec 13 20:56:54 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Maurice]** Ack... B-but what if I get customers? If I l-leave now, they're gonna think I left town too!... I need the cash, you know?... W-why do you want to do this so badly with me? Dec 13 20:57:52 <HashiBot> <Reina> "Because I like you, and I wanna see you become a real man. And I did say I'd give a discount, since I liked you so much." Dec 13 20:58:42 <HashiBot> <Reina> "A real man gets what he wants. And don't you want me? Haven't you dreamed about me, fantasized about me? Tell me what you want to do to me and it'll happen." Dec 13 20:59:20 <HashiBot> <Tempest> Toss me a 2d6. Success condition is hidden.

Dec 13 21:01:16 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _Failed!_ Dec 13 21:01:21 <HashiBot> <Reina> Womp womp. Dec 13 21:01:52 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Maurice]** N-no, no, I really can't, Reina, I really like you, and you're s-s-super... s-sexy, and all.. B-but I gotta think about putting food on the t-table, too! ...at least as long as I can... Dec 13 21:03:35 <HashiBot> <Reina> "Oh, very well. A man's gotta eat, right? I wouldn't want you to starve just to see me, now would I?" Dec 13 21:04:01 <HashiBot> <Reina> Was Maurice's info enough to qualify as having successfully talked to him, or do I need more? Dec 13 21:04:50 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _You have enough information to return to Halverson if you want to._ Dec 13 21:05:49 <HashiBot> <Reina> Right, but from Maurice specifically? Dec 13 21:06:02 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _Yep, you did extract info from him._ Dec 13 21:06:14 <HashiBot> <Reina> Since I got a notice when I did it with Eve. Dec 13 21:06:20 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _You're free to try other people if you want more background information, but what you know is enough._ Dec 13 21:07:08 <HashiBot> <Reina> "Alright, before I go, Maurice. What do /you/ think of Bruce? I'm hearing a lot of things, but I want the opinion of someone I trust." Dec 13 21:08:25 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Maurice]** Bruce...? The town defense guy? He's nice enough, I guess... He bought his utility rig at my shop. Dec 13 21:08:55 <HashiBot> <Reina> "Alright? Kiss before I go? Just so you get a reminder of what my lips felt like." Dec 13 21:09:23 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _He timidly replies 'okay'_, then just as timidly approaches and presents his lips._ Dec 13 21:10:37 <HashiBot> <Reina> I do a lot of kissing, imprinting my softness against his mouth, letting him taste as much as he wants. When I pull away, there's even a string of saliva keeping us connected. Dec 13 21:11:02 <HashiBot> <Reina> "I'll make sure to stop by before I leave. Maybe when it's night you'll be more up to things." Dec 13 21:11:24 <HashiBot> <Reina> Okay, let's head to the library. Dec 13 21:16:30 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _12 rooms later, and you are in the Elkins library. You are in the library entrance, inside the west wing. There is nobody here, just lots of bookshelves and many books on each. The librarian is in the East wing, 2 rooms east from your position._ Dec 13 21:17:06 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _Afterglow has ended._ Dec 13 21:17:40 <HashiBot> <Reina> I'll head to the librarian, and check 'em out. And, of course, pay for computer use. Dec 13 21:17:50 <HashiBot> <Reina> TIME TO UPLOAD MY CAMERA PHOTOS MOTHERFUCKERS. Dec 13 21:20:38 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _Elkins Library, East Wing. Yet more bookshelves, as well as the librarian's desk. The librarian is an old human male - exactly the sort of person you'd imagine being a crusty old librarian._ Dec 13 21:21:26 <HashiBot> <Reina> Not my time, but the elderly should be respected. "Morning, sir. Looks like the critters and wild mutts mostly avoided the library? I'm glad." Dec 13 21:22:22 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Librarian]** _<He lifts up his shotgun.>_ They fookin' better stay out me library. Cuz I'll fook em up if they try. Dec 13 21:22:37 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _He speaks with a bit of a weird accent._ Dec 13 21:23:37 <HashiBot> <Reina> "A man after my own heart. Have you had any problems with not-critters? I heard Elkins had a bit of a criminal problem these days, I wouldn't want you to be harmed by it." Dec 13 21:25:46 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Librarian]** I donnoe about criminy times, but I knoe that there be lots of locals buying books aboot survival 'n things like dat! Dec 13 21:26:17 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Librarian]** Some of 'em never returned! Infact some of 'em just paid the borrow fee without ever returning! Damn motherfookers stealin' me books like that! If I catch whoever did that I'll fookin kill 'em! Dec 13 21:26:50 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Librarian]** _ahem_. Didya want anything else, ma'am? Dec 13 21:27:34 <HashiBot> <Reina> "I just wanted to ask you about that Bruce character that's trying to be a one man TownSec - and buy some computer time. What do you think of him?" Dec 13 21:28:35 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Librarian]** Oh, him? I don't talk to him not much, but he a nice enough fella. A bit delusional if he t'inkin' he can handle this town all by heemself. Dec 13 21:29:35 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Librarian]** Trooth be told, if he knew who stole me books, I'd go with 'im in an instant, and blow the motherfookers away. Dec 13 21:29:57 <HashiBot> <Reina> "Sounds like a plan, sir. And the computer time?" Dec 13 21:31:45 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Librarian]** O. Me bad. 5 P$ compooter usage fee, please. They be found in the South wing. Dec 13 21:32:40 <HashiBot> <Reina> Five bucks for the fee, and then time to upload some pics. Dec 13 21:33:01 <HashiBot> <Reina> I'm not going to spend time on the internet, I just wanna get my face and body out there. Dec 13 21:33:08 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _2240 P$ remaining in the backpack._ Dec 13 21:33:15 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _You get computer usage fee, valid until you leave the library._ Dec 13 21:33:19 <HashiBot> <Reina> And you know, upload all those pictures of me getting eaten out by an angel. Dec 13 21:33:31 <HashiBot> <Reina> Because OH MAN that is gonna grind some gears. Dec 13 21:33:39 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _For the purpose of fairness, uploading pictures does still count as browsing MazeNet, and you will still spend time and lose Stress doing so. Is this OK?_ Dec 13 21:33:48 <HashiBot> <Reina> That's faie. Dec 13 21:33:54 <HashiBot> <Reina> Upload away! Dec 13 21:34:47 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _First, you move 2 rooms to the south wing, and pick a computer to use..._ Dec 13 21:35:27 <HashiBot> <Reina> I will not upload pictures with Diana, of course. That's invasion of privacy. Dec 13 21:39:55 <HashiBot> <Tempest> Okay. Roll a 1d16*4 for me. Dec 13 21:40:26 <HashiBot> <Tempest> Time will tick down during this activity.

Dec 13 21:52:26 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _Just 5 rooms later, and you're at the Elkins Hospital, inside of the lobby. The lobby duty nurse is at their desk._ Dec 13 21:54:59 <HashiBot> <Reina> "400 for a room, right?" Dec 13 21:56:06 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _The lobby duty nurse is one of the people you were recommended._ Dec 13 21:56:20 <HashiBot> <Reina> I will talk to her after I get some fuckin' sleep. Dec 13 21:56:26 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Lobby nurse]** Yeah, it's 400 P$, but go talk to the medic if you need a room. I just handle information. Dec 13 21:56:41 <HashiBot> <Reina> To the medic, then. Dec 13 21:57:37 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _2 rooms later..._ Dec 13 21:57:48 <HashiBot> <Reina> 400 plopped down on the nearest table as soon as I enter the room. "Key please. Bruce is a cheapskate." Dec 13 21:58:13 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Medic]** Bruce? Halverson? What? What do you mean? Did he hurt you? Dec 13 22:00:10 <HashiBot> <Reina> "He certainly got me /hurt./ The idiot's doing nothing but ego stroking and he's going to get people hurt." Dec 13 22:00:14 <HashiBot> <Reina> "What, you know him?" Dec 13 22:00:34 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Medic]** Oh, wait. I bet you're the person he hired to do cleanup, didn't he. I heard about this. Dec 13 22:01:31 <HashiBot> <Reina> "He isn't much of a Townsec if he can't even take care of a few dogs by himself. And I heard that people were buying meds and leaving?" Dec 13 22:02:48 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Medic]** Of course I know him. I treat his injuries every so often. He gets hurt so often - always the same thing, scratches and bites - that we have an agreement... he brings me food and I give him a discount on the treatment. Dec 13 22:03:00 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Medic]** He's probably my #1 patient. Dec 13 22:03:36 <HashiBot> <Reina> "Food? What, is he a chef?" Dec 13 22:06:41 <HashiBot> <Reina> "He's not nearly as trained as he should be - can he even protect this town? Everyone's telling me they're all getting geared up for something - do you know anything about that?" Dec 13 22:07:50 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Medic]** He's trying very hard, at least. And no, he's not a chef, but he brings me some of his game meat from his cleanups. I'm expecting him to bring me some since it looks like you just finished cleaning today's critters; it helps spice the evening dinner a little bit. Dec 13 22:08:00 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Medic]** I'm not a chef but I like cooking, it's a sort of deal we have. Dec 13 22:08:25 <HashiBot> <Reina> "Actually, uh. I butchered all the corpses." Dec 13 22:08:35 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _He blinks._ Dec 13 22:08:38 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Medic]** Oh. Dec 13 22:09:00 <HashiBot> <Reina> "I left some behind, so he might have gotten some for you, but, uh - don't suppose I can get a bit on that deal?" Dec 13 22:09:02 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Medic]** I guess I'll have that awful crap the takeout stand serves, then. Dec 13 22:09:15 <HashiBot> <Reina> 'I have 5 pieces of meat, so knock off 50 from the room price?" Dec 13 22:09:24 <HashiBot> <Reina> "It'd be like I'm selling the meat to you. Sorta.." Dec 13 22:09:42 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Medic]** No, you look hungry as hell. You need it more than I do. Dec 13 22:09:57 <HashiBot> <Reina> "I don't exactly have a /stove/ on me." Dec 13 22:10:08 <HashiBot> <Reina> Not that he knows it, it's all in my bag. Dec 13 22:10:29 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Medic]** _Sigh._ I don't know why Bruce doesn't have anyone helping him. At the rate things are going, it's all going to be over soon. He isn't the only customer I've had recently. Dec 13 22:11:47 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Medic]** Yesterday, I had to fix up three locals who got bruises and cuts, one of them had his legs broken. They were attacked by the same gang of unsavory types that showed up yesterday... Doesn't help that it's on top of whoever the monsters du jour scratch up. This week was jackals, last week we had baby dragons, the week before that, it was big felines... It doesn't stop. Everybody's leaving, this town is bad luck. Dec 13 22:12:37 <HashiBot> <Reina> "It sounds like Bruce wants more help - but he can't possibly have enough money to finance a whole Townsec." Dec 13 22:13:16 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Medic]** If this was just about money! We don't need mercenaries, we need the last few inhabitants of town to start giving a shit and stop being cowards! But what do I know, I'm just a medic. I'm not paid to talk. Dec 13 22:13:37 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Medic]** You wanted a room to rest? Dec 13 22:14:25 <HashiBot> <Reina> "Yeah. The 400's already on the table. Can I just get to my bed now?" Dec 13 22:14:46 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Medic]** Room 204. i assume you know your way around hospitals. Dec 13 22:15:20 <HashiBot> <Reina> Into the bed for a long rest. Dec 13 22:17:58 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _You've paid for hospital bedroom usage - valid until you leave.

Maybe the shower water is drinkable..._ Dec 13 22:36:45 <HashiBot> <Reina> I'll drink from the sink, yeah. Ten times should be good, and I'll fill up my canteen as well. Dec 13 22:37:33 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _Each sip will take a turn and refill 80 wtr. You will also need 1 turn to refill your canteen. Do you want to spend 11 turns to drink tap water and fill your canteen?_ Dec 13 22:38:51 <HashiBot> <Reina> Yes.

Not quite max, but still good enough._ Dec 13 22:42:52 <HashiBot> <Reina> I'll drink 5 more times, just to make sure.

Your belly feels full of water._ Dec 13 22:45:10 <HashiBot> <Reina> If only it was full of other things. Buuut, we'll fix that. Dec 13 22:45:15 <HashiBot> <Reina> Alright, time to go to the takeout stand. Dec 13 22:45:44 <HashiBot> <Reina> I seriously need to stock up on foods again. Dec 13 22:45:57 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _You travel 6 rooms to the medic office - where the medic stops you, because he wants to speak with you first._ Dec 13 22:46:27 <HashiBot> <Reina> "I left the key on the bed if that's what you're concerned about." Dec 13 22:47:08 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Medic]** Thank you, but that's not it. Bruce showed up a few hours earlier. Woke me up from my nap, but essentially he wanted to check up on you. I told him you were catching a little bit of much needed rest. Dec 13 22:47:49 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Medic]** He delivered me the remains of the creatures you butchered at home - he said you just cut them up and left them as they were. Thanks to you, my fridge is chock full of future dinners. Dec 13 22:48:51 <HashiBot> <Reina> Did he give the medic the human meat too? I think but do not ask. Dec 13 22:48:54 <HashiBot> <Reina> Holy FUCK I do not ask. Dec 13 22:49:24 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Medic]** He tossed the human meat out. I'm not gonna question _why_ you cut the poor guys up, but... since you fought long and hard and you're doing your part to help around and make yourself useful, I thought it'd be appropriate to give you a reward. _<He turns, shouting at the door.>_ SANDRA! GIVE HER THE THING! Dec 13 22:49:32 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _From the meds shop, the nurse replies back._ Dec 13 22:49:37 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Meds shop nurse]** Coming! Dec 13 22:50:14 <HashiBot> <Reina> FUCK. Dec 13 22:50:34 <HashiBot> <Reina> "I needed the practice, and no one was gonna mourn 'em." Dec 13 22:50:44 <HashiBot> <Reina> Just play it cool Reina, just play it ice cold. Dec 13 22:50:48 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _The shop nurse shows up._ Dec 13 22:51:14 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Meds shop nurse]** Here. We had that in the back of our shop, and it wasn't selling, so... Dec 13 22:51:18 <Hebizuka> [Meds] Blood Transfusion Kit (BTK) - Youkai blood - Refills 5.0 Blood if injected to a youkai being - Weight: 1 Dec 13 22:51:43 <HashiBot> <Reina> "Oh." Dec 13 22:51:47 <HashiBot> <Reina> " /OH."/ Dec 13 22:51:55 <HashiBot> <Reina> "That's, uh - that's appreciate." Dec 13 22:52:00 <HashiBot> <Reina> "Wait, is that /Tanuki/ blood?" Dec 13 22:52:16 <HashiBot> <Reina> "Because if it's, like, kitsune or kappa or something, pretty sure I still react negatively." Dec 13 22:52:58 <HashiBot> <Reina> (*Peeks into the Mazeworld page for BTKs*) Dec 13 22:52:59 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Meds shop nurse]** It's _youkai blood_. The blood of youkai is (rather curiously, medically speaking) the exact same type across all subspecies. It should be safe for you. We can't use it, we don't have youkai inhabitants. Dec 13 22:54:00 <HashiBot> <Reina> "Well, far be it from me to say no. I appreciate it, handsome." Dec 13 22:54:09 <HashiBot> <Reina> "Don't suppose you wanna go get takeout with me? My treat." Dec 13 22:54:35 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Meds shop nurse]** Sorry, gotta do the night shift. Dec 13 22:54:45 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Medic]** No thanks. I'm good anyway. Dec 13 22:54:58 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _The shop nurse returns to her post._ Dec 13 22:55:18 <HashiBot> <Reina> "Alrighty." Did I successfully extract information from the hospital, or was it specifically from the med shop nurse I needed to talk to? Dec 13 22:55:28 <HashiBot> <Tempest> Backpack / Main: 73.41 /150 Dec 13 22:55:47 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _Both the medic and the lobby nurse had things to say. The shop nurse seems not to, and seems to be wholly unconcerned with anything not related to her job._ Dec 13 22:56:02 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _You do have more than enough info to return to Bruce if you wanted to, though._ Dec 13 22:56:20 <HashiBot> <Reina> Might as well do a perfect job. I'll head to the lobby nurse, then. Dec 13 22:57:39 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _Two rooms south, and you're back at the lobby._ Dec 13 22:58:04 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Lobby nurse]** Hey! Rested well? Dec 13 22:58:21 <HashiBot> <Reina> "Hi hi, and pretty well. Bruce wanted me to talk to you about how things were going? I imagine that you guys are getting a lot of business at least, with how little security is going on." Dec 13 22:59:01 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Lobby nurse]** _<She makes a cringing grimace. As though the topic is touchy.>_ Dec 13 22:59:23 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Lobby nurse]** Um, well... Dec 13 22:59:44 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Lobby nurse]** You haven't heard about the gang of criminal types that showed up yesterday, I take it?... Dec 13 23:00:08 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Lobby nurse]** Well... technically it's 2 days ago now... eheh, silly me. Dec 13 23:00:28 <HashiBot> <Reina> "When you say yesterday, do you mean while I was sleep - oh, guess not." Dec 13 23:00:41 <HashiBot> <Reina> "I heard /rumors,/ but no one said anything specifically." Dec 13 23:01:57 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Lobby nurse]** Well... the reason I'm not really happy to talk about it is because... Bruce _doesn't_ know about them... He took a day off, and that's when the gang showed up, started throwing threats around, trashing stuff, terrorizing every shop in town, saying that next time they show up, they'd show up with friends, tear this town apart and loot it for everything it's got... Dec 13 23:02:22 <HashiBot> <Reina> "Yeah, it /is/ kinda shitty here." Dec 13 23:02:30 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Lobby nurse]** Look, they're super duper scary! I've been saving up all of my salaries so that I can buy that big Blackhawk backpack I saw and just... take all of my stuff and _leave_! Dec 13 23:02:41 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Lobby nurse]** If nobody does anything to stop these punks, I might die, you know?! Dec 13 23:04:20 <HashiBot> <Reina> "That's probably for the best. But, just hypothetically - if they /did/ all die, would you still be willing to stay?" Dec 13 23:04:57 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Lobby nurse]** I mean... Yeah, if they can be stopped, and if somebody could put a fricking end to these critter invasions, I'd sleep better at night, for sure!... Dec 13 23:05:22 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Lobby nurse]** Believe it or not but it SUCKS when all of your patients are locals that show up every week for lacerations, cuts, bruises, and bites! It does NOT make them feel safe! Dec 13 23:06:59 <HashiBot> <Reina> "I can believe it. Look, between you and me, gorgeous? I'll whip Bruce into shape and see what I can do." Dec 13 23:07:14 <HashiBot> <Reina> "Heavens know I'll do a better job than he does, at any rate." Dec 13 23:07:26 <HashiBot> <Reina> Okay, NOW to the takeout stand. Dec 13 23:09:21 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Lobby nurse]** May the Gods hear you... Dec 13 23:09:58 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _10 rooms later, and you find yourself at the takeout stand emplacement, which is really just an empty street with a mobile food cart and a dude behind it._ Dec 13 23:10:56 <HashiBot> <Reina> "So how fucked are you when the bandits all come again? Also, what's on the menu today?" Dec 13 23:11:48 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Stand owner]** Yoooo! Need some grub? Dec 13 23:12:12 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Stand owner]** I don't know nothing about no bandits, ma'am. When the defecation's about to hit the ventilation, I just close up and clam up in my room, dude. Dec 13 23:13:21 <HashiBot> <Reina> "Smart man. Hook me up with what you've got, I've got cash to spare."

Dec 13 23:15:29 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _Now that you think about it, it DOES smell of fries..._ Dec 13 23:17:08 <HashiBot> <Reina> "Give me, oh, 8 boxes of fries and 5 green teas for now." Dec 13 23:18:05 <HashiBot> <Reina> "So that's 120 for the fries, and let's see for the tea..." Dec 13 23:19:11 <HashiBot> <Reina> "And 50 for the tea. Congrats, you just made 170 bucks." Dec 13 23:21:08 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Stand owner]** So wait, you want 8 fries and uhh... 5 green teas? Dec 13 23:21:20 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Stand owner]** Shit dude, you've got a party? Hurhur. Dec 13 23:21:27 <HashiBot> <Reina> "I need a LOT of food. Don't go anywhere, I'll probably buy more in a bit." Dec 13 23:21:39 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Stand owner]** Cool beans, dude! I ain't movin! Dec 13 23:22:05 <HashiBot> <Reina> So 170 out of my pocket, and lots of hot, delicious, salty lengths into my mouth.

It might be a little bad for your stomach if you eat all of this at once._ Dec 13 23:22:58 <HashiBot> <Reina> Well, not all at /once./ Dec 13 23:23:05 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _1670 P$ left in the backpack._ Dec 13 23:23:33 <HashiBot> <Reina> But I'll eat three for now. Dec 13 23:23:43 <HashiBot> <Reina> And then probably spend 100 turns generating TB. Dec 13 23:26:00 <HashiBot> <Reina> Ah, make that 4. Dec 13 23:26:42 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _4 fries? OK._ Dec 13 23:30:08 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _You spend 4 turns gorging on fries like a fat kid at a diner..._ Dec 13 23:30:34 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _You gained 1988 ntri and lost 40 wtr, not taking in account time spent eating._ Dec 13 23:31:04 <HashiBot> <Tempest> [Nutrition: 2930 ntri - OK] [Hydration: 1338 wtr - Hydrated] Dec 13 23:31:11 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _You feel a lot better! No longer hungry at least._ Dec 13 23:31:47 <HashiBot> <Reina> Alright, let's just eat one more to top myself off, and then burn 2500 nutrition for 10 TB. Dec 13 23:31:54 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _You've got 4 fries and 5 green teas left._ Dec 13 23:31:58 <HashiBot> <Reina> "Hey, dude, here's another 120, I want the rest of your fries." Dec 13 23:32:09 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Stand owner]** Wicked, dude! Dec 13 23:32:33 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _You now have 12 boxes of fries at your dispotion._ Dec 13 23:32:46 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _1550 P$ left._ Dec 13 23:33:01 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Stand owner]** Dude, I'm sold out on fries! And all on one customer? Freakin' wicked, dude. Dec 13 23:33:33 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _You spend a turn to eat one more box of fries._ Dec 13 23:34:12 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _You feel satiated. Perfect time to start regenerating TB. Generate for all ten?_ Dec 13 23:34:30 <HashiBot> <Reina> Yup yup.

Hurhur. Dec 13 23:40:08 <HashiBot> <Reina> "Laters." Let's go to the bank and finish this up. Dec 13 23:47:23 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _6 rooms later, and you reach the bank..._ Dec 13 23:50:05 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _The bank office is not heavily guarded. In fact it's not guarded at all, except for the banker himself..._ Dec 13 23:50:26 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _The banker looks like a nervous, cowardly wreck._ Dec 13 23:52:44 <HashiBot> <Reina> "So how fucked are you when all those bandits and criminals come in, sir? Asking for Bruce." Dec 13 23:53:09 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Banker]** I-I-I-... Dec 13 23:53:32 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Banker]** I'LL SHOW EM! L-L-LIKE IN THE MILITARY! D-DUMP YOUR MAGAZINE IN CASE OF D-D-DOUBT! AND I AM FULL OF DOUBTS RIGHT NOW! Dec 13 23:53:49 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Banker]** ... a-ahh? whah? Sorry, uh... You ... What can I do for you?... Dec 13 23:54:00 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _You doubt this guy has -ever- served._ Dec 13 23:55:49 <HashiBot> <Reina> "Well, you didn't tell me you /served,/ handsome! Will a big, handsome soldier like you /capture and ravish/ a slutty naughty youkai like me~?" Dec 13 23:56:07 <HashiBot> <Reina> "You soldiers are always so rough with us, but I love that sorta thing." Dec 13 23:57:04 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Banker]** ... I uh... _<His voice cracked.>_ Dec 13 23:57:17 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Banker]** ... I was never a soldier. I'm just saying that to... pump myself up... Dec 13 23:58:03 <HashiBot> <Reina> "Oh, really? Well, you really had me going there." Dec 13 23:58:18 <HashiBot> <Reina> "I'm glad that you're trying to fight. That means a lot, especially for a place like this." Dec 13 23:59:05 <HashiBot> <Reina> Reina steps face to face with the banker now, only the counter separating the two of them. "Would you like a reward for your courage, my brave big soldier?" Dec 13 23:59:17 <HashiBot> <Reina> "Because Elkins is going to need every pair of hands it can get." Dec 13 23:59:31 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Banker]** Nonono. No. No thanks. D-don't touch me. I do not want anything to do with the mess inside or outside of this town! Dec 14 00:01:03 <HashiBot> <Reina> "What's happening outside the town?" Dec 14 00:01:08 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Banker]** I thought I was going to be cozy and nice in a quiet little town all the way in the asshole of the world, but SOMEHOW... TROUBLE finds its way, and it's REALLY done it this time! This town's falling apart, everyone's withdrawing all of their money as though doomsday was coming soon... I just do NOT want ANY of this, okay? I'M DONE. As soon as I can pack up, I'm LEAVING. Dec 14 00:02:39 <HashiBot> <Reina> "And where are you gonna run off to? The bandits are probably ambushing and killing anyone who leaves." Dec 14 00:02:58 <HashiBot> <Reina> "It's easier to pick a town off by rattling its people and then getting them as they run." Dec 14 00:02:58 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Banker]** Ohmygod. You're right. I'm done for. I'm doomed. DOOMED. OH GODS. Dec 14 00:03:07 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _He whimpers._ Dec 14 00:03:18 <HashiBot> <Reina> "Your best bet is to stay here with a gun and fight them off when they come, handsome." Dec 14 00:03:51 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Banker]** Noooooooooo!.... I'm a terrible fighter! I've been given this gun since I became a banker here but I'm awful at using iiiit! They'll just plug me in the head and I'll be deaaaaaaaad. Dec 14 00:05:28 <HashiBot> <Reina> "Then you better start going to the gun range. And you better start helping Bruce out if he asks for it." Dec 14 00:05:33 <HashiBot> <Reina> "Ta ta, handsome." Dec 14 00:05:39 <HashiBot> <Reina> Alright, FINALLY it's time. Dec 14 00:05:41 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _He whimpers pathetically._ Dec 14 00:05:47 <HashiBot> <Reina> Let's go back to Brucie. Dec 14 00:05:52 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _You've learned everything you could from the townsfolks._ Dec 14 00:06:42 <HashiBot> <Reina> That was a good way to burn a day after fighting for so long. All work and no play makes Reina a cold fish. Dec 14 00:07:00 <HashiBot> <Reina> So, ah - I seem to recall him waiting at the Access Corridor, so let's start there. Dec 14 00:08:41 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _He's at the Town Gate actually, but same diff, one room difference._ Dec 14 00:11:47 <HashiBot> <Reina> Town Gate it is. Dec 14 00:11:55 <HashiBot> <Reina> poor fucker pulling an all night shift. Dec 14 00:14:35 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _7 rooms later..._ Dec 14 00:14:56 <HashiBot> <Tempest> [Fatigue: 40.3% - OK] Dec 14 00:14:59 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _Be careful._ Dec 14 00:15:31 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _You return to the Town Gate, where Bruce is playing pretend at being Town Security, standing around shotgun in hands, being effectively the only defense the town has._ Dec 14 00:16:19 <HashiBot> <Reina> "You are /so/ fucked Bruce." Dec 14 00:17:10 <HashiBot> <Reina> "Because everyone who's had the funds to leave /already has/ and everyone else is praying to uncaring Gods for help, or are just flat out fucking senile like your librarian friend." Dec 14 00:19:48 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Bruce]** So everyone is already planning to leave, if not done already? That's why nobody is helping out? Did you find out anything else, or was that it?... Dec 14 00:21:15 <HashiBot> <Reina> "Dude, I told you this yesterday morning. There's a bunch of bandits that threatened to murder everyone here." Dec 14 00:21:56 <HashiBot> <Reina> "If you can't handle a pack of wild dogs on your own, there is absolutely no hope that you can take out an entire heavily armed gang of Outlaws by yourself." Dec 14 00:22:26 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Bruce]** Wait, wait, what? What the _fuck_? Bandits? Dec 14 00:22:27 <HashiBot> <Reina> "You are SO SHITTY of a leader that no one /dared/ to tell you that a huge group of them came in two days ago, because you are useless and powerless." Dec 14 00:22:31 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Bruce]** When the hell did that - FUCK. Dec 14 00:22:39 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Bruce]** They showed up during my off day, didn't they?! Dec 14 00:22:52 <HashiBot> <Reina> "And EVERYTHING YOU DO AS YOUR ONE MAN TOWN SECURITY IS JUST MEANT TO STROKE YOUR EGO." Dec 14 00:23:09 <HashiBot> <Reina> "You didn't even have the fucking foresight to HAVE SOMEONE FILL IN FOR YOU YOU RETARD." Dec 14 00:23:30 <HashiBot> <Reina> "You fucking deserve to die when they come to murder you and burn this place to the ground." Dec 14 00:24:58 <HashiBot> <Reina> "If you had any sense you'd get everyone into a caravan and fucking /leave./ Go to Arnett, go to the youkai towns, go to somewhere that's not fucking here if you care about the people." Dec 14 00:28:43 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Bruce]** ... You're right on one point. I failed at my job. I failed to take the town in consideration, I failed to think about anything other than myself in this situation. Dec 14 00:31:01 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Bruce]** And because of that, I've failed to stop this gang. I didn't even KNOW they were there, until you told me. I'm going to do one last thing before I go... Actually, two last things. Dec 14 00:31:14 <HashiBot> <Reina> "I am right on /every/ point but sure, I'll take what I can get." Dec 14 00:31:24 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Bruce]** First, I'm going to call the bank. I'm not going to pay you 450 P$ as initially promised. Dec 14 00:31:33 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Bruce]** You're getting 800 P$ instead. Dec 14 00:32:50 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Bruce]** I'm going to put together an emergency roll call. It's time I took things into my own hands - but not the way I've done it all on my lonesome. I'm going to gather everyone that's left in town, and I'll do my best to convince them that it's now or never - they help defend this town, or there won't be any town left. What this place needs is organization. Thanks to you, I understand that now. Dec 14 00:33:13 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _One phone call later, and your bank account is credited with 800 P$. You now have 1200 in the bank account._ Dec 14 00:34:08 <HashiBot> <Reina> "Yeah, good luck with that. But before I go." Dec 14 00:34:30 <HashiBot> <Reina> "Make sure you keep an eye out for Maurice, Evelyn, and Diana, okay? I'll murder you myself if they get hurt." Dec 14 00:35:23 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Bruce]** Don't worry. If we succeed, I will make sure that they know it's because of you. Dec 14 00:35:43 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Bruce]** Now, you should go. I'm going to organize a lockdown of the town. It's not like we receive many visitors or much trade anyway. Dec 14 00:36:42 <HashiBot> <Reina> "I will, but in a bit. Need to do a few more things 'fore I go." Dec 14 00:37:13 <HashiBot> <Reina> To the hiring agency! Time to get some more actual jobs because fucking hell all this talking is getting me antsy. Dec 14 00:42:49 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Bruce]** Okay, but don't take too long. Dec 14 00:43:25 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _S1-4: Objective 4 completed. Waiting for you to leave town to complete the sidequest officially. For the sake of brevity, Tier 2 Sidequests have been unlocked._ Dec 14 00:44:32 <HashiBot> <Reina> Okay, hiring agency first. Dec 14 00:44:48 <HashiBot> <Reina> I just want /some/ kind of direction before I go. Dec 14 00:45:08 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _6 rooms later, and you're in the town's hiring bureau. Surprisingly it's still running despite everything being seemingly in dire straits._ Dec 14 00:45:19 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _You get the distinct impression that it's been ages since anybody entered the bureau._ Dec 14 00:47:35 <HashiBot> <Reina> "Hi, Reina Miyako Knight. Just helped Bruce with some stuff, he's about to put everyone on lockdown. Got any jobs for me before I go?" Dec 14 00:48:00 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Hirer]** Oh wow... someone coming in for jobs? You must be pretty desperate if you're here. Let me look... Dec 14 00:51:58 <HashiBot> <Reina> "Come on, there's gotta be /something."/ Dec 14 00:52:18 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Hirer]** Oh, wow. You've been cleared for Tier 2. Congratulations. Dec 14 00:53:08 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Hirer]** You're making a name for yourself out there, that's pretty cool. Anyway, yeah, I do have more jobs. Five of them. Dec 14 00:58:18 <HashiBot> <Reina> "Sounds good - what are they?" Dec 14 00:58:26 <HashiBot> <Reina> "I'm itching to get out there some more." Dec 14 00:58:37 <Hebizuka> S2-1: Special Delivery (Dest: Semitas) Dec 14 00:58:37 <Hebizuka> S2-2: Appetite for Destruction (Dest: Intersection 18) Dec 14 00:58:37 <Hebizuka> S2-3: Hidden Treasures (Dest: Garica Block) Dec 14 00:58:37 <Hebizuka> S2-4: Old Load (Dest: Joliet Sector) Dec 14 00:58:37 <Hebizuka> S2-5: What mine is mine? (Dest: Heshbar) Dec 14 01:01:39 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _Ask about a destination to know more about the job._ Dec 14 01:02:03 <HashiBot> <Reina> "Okay... looks like I can go to Semitas, then Intersection 18, and then... make the long trip to Heshbar. Ughhhhh." Dec 14 01:02:20 <HashiBot> <Reina> "Alright, sign me up for Special Delivery, i wanna bully some more angels." Dec 14 01:03:09 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Hirer]** So, since you've started making a good name for yourself, I think it's time that you knew about Trading Missions. Dec 14 01:05:06 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Hirer]** There is always a need for people to haul merchandise from one point in the Mazes to another, folks like to have stuff, and they love when it's delivered fast and in good quantity. Trading Missions are just a fancy name for courier jobs. It's not easy; you've surely seen what the UA is like already, and there are seedy towns (_<cough>_ like this one _<cough>_) as well. However, there is added danger to this Dec 14 01:05:06 <HashiBot> job. Dec 14 01:05:28 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Hirer]** Put it this way; raiders and marauders LOVE couriers, they're walking piggy banks to them! Dec 14 01:06:37 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Hirer]** With that said and done, it's only really as dangerous as the loot you carry is valuable. Courier jobs are good money, and an excellent excuse to travel and see places. I strongly recommend you do this job before the others - it will look great on your record; after all, nobody likes cowards, and couriers simply cannot be cowards. So, are you interested? Do you want to deliver stuff for cash? Dec 14 01:06:56 <HashiBot> <Reina> "What happens if the items are lost?" Dec 14 01:07:05 <HashiBot> <Reina> "Like, do I, personally, get fined?" Dec 14 01:08:19 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Hirer]** If you drop, lose, or steal from a shipment, you will fail your delivery job, and you will be placed on probation. Not to mention that it's illegal - you will be slapped with a crime. And trust me, we will know if you do that. Dec 14 01:09:21 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Hirer]** We leave the matter of crime and law to the Police and the groups interested in upholding Standard Law. Besides that, as I said, you will be placed on probation. The total value of the lost cargo will be multiplied by 2.5 - that amount of money represents your Ban Bail. You will need to pay this much money if you want to lift the probation and continue doing courier jobs. Trust me, it's not worth the trouble. Dec 14 01:09:22 <HashiBot> <Reina> "So, if I get held up at gunpoint and it gets stolen, /I/ am slapped with the crime of, what, failing to deliver?" Dec 14 01:10:07 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Hirer]** Yes. Your cargo is your responsibility - if we determined that you didn't purposefully stole from it, you will only be affected with a probation. If you stole from it, you will be charged with a crime as well. Dec 14 01:10:41 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Hirer]** However, it is good money. The value of this job depends on your competence and your trustworthiness. Deliver it, kick the ass of the people who want to lift it from you, and you'll be fine - and rich in no time. Dec 14 01:10:44 <HashiBot> <Reina> "That's fucking retarded and no wonder only the desperate and skilled want to do courier jobs." Dec 14 01:10:54 <HashiBot> <Reina> "So sign me the fuck up I guess." Dec 14 01:11:39 <HashiBot> <Reina> "Do I pick up the package here, or - what?" Dec 14 01:11:43 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Hirer]** Awesome! Oh, one more thing before I send you off. Dec 14 01:12:14 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Hirer]** At first, you will be tasked to carry items of low value. We can't have you transport the expensive, valuable, and raider-magnet cargo first! But keep doing a good job, and eventually you will get to transport the good stuff! Dec 14 01:12:25 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Hirer]** Now, please head to the town bank to receive further instructions! Dec 14 01:12:57 <HashiBot> <Reina> "Cool, I got some stuff to deposit." Dec 14 01:13:09 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Hirer]** Excellent! Thank you! Dec 14 01:13:14 <HashiBot> <Reina> Okay, before I go to the bank, gun shop to sell those shitty guns and look for a silencer. Dec 14 01:13:21 <HashiBot> <Reina> ...Annnd 12 gauge ammo, I GUESS. Dec 14 01:13:37 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _<Sidequest S2-1: Special Delivery - Activated!>_ Dec 14 01:13:55 <HashiBot> <Tempest> S2-1 Objective 1: Deliver the package to its intended destination. You will find the package at the bank. Dec 14 01:15:05 <HashiBot> <Tempest> One more thing: When you have a Trading Mission activated, Trip Skip is disabled! Dec 14 01:15:10 <HashiBot> <Reina> Naaaaaaaturally. Dec 14 01:15:23 <HashiBot> <Reina> If I was SMART I'd have waited to go to Arnett then activate the mission. Dec 14 01:15:26 <HashiBot> <Reina> But, whatever. Dec 14 01:15:36 <HashiBot> <Reina> I have junk to sell. Dec 14 01:29:54 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _You head out of the hiring bureau, and move to the town's gun shop... 11 rooms have passed._ Dec 14 01:31:03 <HashiBot> <Reina> "I have three shitty guns and the assorted mags. Do you have 12 guage silencers or chokes?" Dec 14 01:33:11 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Dealer]** Let's look at your stuff first.

And any 12 gauge ammo or accessories?" Dec 14 01:40:20 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _You sold all of these weapons and ammo for 699!_ Dec 14 01:40:46 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Dealer]** Let me check. Dec 14 01:43:43 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Dealer]** Sorry, I'm sold out on 12 gauge ammunition. I'll go check if I have accessories though. Dec 14 01:44:04 <HashiBot> <Reina> "A shame, but fine." Dec 14 01:44:16 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Dealer]** You're in luck; I have a 12 gauge silencer in the inventory. Would that be something you'd like? Dec 14 01:45:22 <HashiBot> <Reina> "I FUCKING LOVE YOU." Dec 14 01:45:29 <HashiBot> <Reina> "HOOK ME UP BABY." Dec 14 01:47:56 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Dealer]** That'll be 350 P$. I'll take it out of your credit, which leaves 349 P$. Do you want it in cash, credit, or bank transfer Dec 14 01:49:05 <HashiBot> <Reina> "Cash me up!"

You holding up okay?" Dec 14 01:58:54 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Diana]** Oh, SHIT! Reina! You're still around, you raccoon rascal! Dec 14 01:59:11 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _She hops above the counter immediately, jumping at you and mmmmwah! on the cheek._ Dec 14 01:59:25 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Diana]** Holy crap, it's so good to see a familiar face! It's been unending bullshit since your last visit! Dec 14 02:00:04 <HashiBot> <Reina> "I heard! Bruce hired me to take care of your pack of dogs problem, and now he wants to kick me out so he can put the entire town on lockdown!" Dec 14 02:00:34 <HashiBot> <Reina> "I wanted to check in on you before I left, and give you a little bit of business. Think you can thread my barrel, gorgeous?" Dec 14 02:00:40 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Diana]** Oh, shit, is that true? He finally got around to do something about all of that critter crap? Fuck, finally... Dec 14 02:00:57 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Diana]** _<She suddenly becomes glum.>_ Those guys in the generator facility, you saw them, then?... Dec 14 02:01:30 <HashiBot> <Reina> "Yeah, I did. Friends of yours?" Dec 14 02:01:49 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Diana]** Colleagues... They were engies like me... The only guys I hung around with, honestly. I'm going to miss them... Dec 14 02:02:43 <HashiBot> <Reina> "It might be good to leave while you still can, Diana. You're gonna be stuck here as soon as I go - why don't you come with me? I can take you to Arnett, or Semitas. Anywhere's better than here." Dec 14 02:03:02 <HashiBot> <Reina> "I told Bruce to gather everyone and travel as a caravan, but he's still too up his own ass about protecting the place." Dec 14 02:03:34 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Diana]** Fuck, I don't know, to be honest. I really don't want to give up my engineer gig yet... I like this town, you know? I don't want it to go to shit. I'd like to do my part to defend it while there's still something to defend. Dec 14 02:04:23 <HashiBot> <Reina> "Pfffffffffffft. That's not what I heard first time we met. Did Elkins grow on you?" Dec 14 02:04:34 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Diana]** Honestly? Yeah... Maurice is kinda cute, you know. Dec 14 02:04:47 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Diana]** _(Big ol' wink.)_ He needs a big sister to protect his cute ass. Dec 14 02:05:07 <HashiBot> <Reina> "YOU SNEAKY PUSSY!" Dec 14 02:05:13 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Diana]** _Ahahaha~_ Dec 14 02:05:17 <HashiBot> <Reina> "I was wondering why he was turning me down for round two!"

Dec 14 02:06:10 <HashiBot> <Reina> "Let me know when his birthday is so we can blow his mind together, for one!" Dec 14 02:07:03 <HashiBot> <Reina> "All my advice to him to man up, and he goes and gets a pretty thing like you! I wanted to play with you both, you know. My heart's /shattered./ You've wounded me." Dec 14 02:07:44 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Diana]** Oh, come on, don't you have twelve million johns across the Mazes or something? It's not like a successful gal like you is in need of lovers! Dec 14 02:08:26 <HashiBot> <Reina> "Yeah, but I like you two the /most."/ Reina pouts petulantly, crossing her arms underneath her bosom and letting her big eyes water. Dec 14 02:08:58 <HashiBot> <Reina> "But fine, being in a lockdown will let you two get to know each other more. So that's something, I guess - in the mean time, think you can thread the Browning for me?" Dec 14 02:09:18 <HashiBot> <Reina> "Now I'll have a stealthy shotgun, a sniper shotgun, and a workhorse shotgun." Dec 14 02:17:02 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Diana]** Haha, sure, that's an easy job. You sure you don't want me to improve your Auto-5 a little more on top of muzzle threading? I could give her an eight-shot tube, and a nice, extra-long wooden handguard to go with it! Dec 14 02:18:05 <HashiBot> <Reina> "You know what? Diana, get Maurice to eight-shot capacity and share him, and I will absolutely splurge on getting an eight shot tube." Dec 14 02:18:16 <HashiBot> <Reina> "Ball's in your court, girlfriend!" Dec 14 02:19:31 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Diana]** Do I look like I could stop you?

Nah, I mean, if he wants the tanuki flavor once in a while, I'm not gonna be jealous or anything. But he's mine, okay? Dec 14 02:22:33 <HashiBot> <Reina> "Hahahaha. Just make sure that /he/ knows that, and that /you/ know you can try my ice cream aaaany time, alright?" Dec 14 02:23:00 <HashiBot> <Reina> "I don't mind free flings for friends.
