Jan 25 18:11:39 <Hebizuka> [Session start!] Jan 25 18:14:46 <HashiBot> <Reina> Is it finally time to murder people? Jan 25 18:17:29 <HashiBot> <Tempest> Welcome back to the Mazes, Reina Miyako-Knight. On the last session, you had just entered Intersection 18 in order to tackle on Sidequest 2-2 (_Appetite for Destruction_), which is your first foray into **Mercenary Contracts**. You are in North Street 3, and the enemies you have been assigned to destroy are in the intersection center, scaring and terrorizing travelers into leaving the area. Jan 25 18:17:45 <HashiBot> <Tempest> The intersection center is 3 rooms to the south, so you have a bit of room to prepare before going in. Jan 25 18:18:15 <HashiBot> <Reina> To confirm, I have 10 TB to play with, yes? Jan 25 18:18:25 <HashiBot> <Tempest> Yes, you're at max TB right now.

They're yelling and spitting that the area "belongs to them" now, and that people should "pay or pray", and other such nonsense._ Jan 25 18:24:51 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _One pair is on Side 3. The other is on Side 4. You enter the room on Side 2.

Your Agi went up to +4 - and because your Agi is at +4, you also have IS tier -1. Jan 25 18:27:02 <HashiBot> <Tempest> You succeed at taking cover, very easily. Jan 25 18:27:05 <HashiBot> <Tempest> Turn 1 belongs to you. Jan 25 18:27:26 <HashiBot> <Tempest> What is your next move?

Jan 25 20:11:15 <HashiBot> <Reina> I'll butcher these four corpses for the experience, not the meat. Jan 25 20:11:24 <HashiBot> <Reina> And then take all of their weapons and LBE. Jan 25 20:11:51 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _Alright. You'll spend 4 turns cutting them to pieces, for fun. Then I'll tally up the equipment, fair?_ Jan 25 20:11:55 <HashiBot> <Reina> Sounds good.

Jan 25 20:20:47 <HashiBot> <Reina> If we can do the 'physically drag the weapons/accessories/ammo to the weapon shop' thing we did last time at Semitas, that should be fine. Jan 25 20:22:06 <HashiBot> <Tempest> Your current backpack space is sitting at 129.34 /150 Jan 25 20:22:15 <HashiBot> <Tempest> But we can do that for the guns and ammo. Jan 25 20:22:27 <HashiBot> <Tempest> I don't really care if you're just going next room in the same intersection. Jan 25 20:22:46 <HashiBot> <Tempest> it's not the UA, fine by me. Jan 25 20:24:19 <HashiBot> <Reina> Sweet. Let's take a look at the LBE, then. Jan 25 20:28:18 <Hebizuka> [LBE] (Backpack) Courier bag - Capacity 20 units - [Quantity: 4] Jan 25 20:28:18 <Hebizuka> [LBE] (Leg rig) Condor utility rig - Capacity 4 units - [Quantity: 4] Jan 25 20:30:16 <Hebizuka> [LBE] (Backpack) Courier bag - Capacity 20 units - [Quantity: 4] Jan 25 20:30:16 <Hebizuka> [LBE] (Leg rig) Condor utility rig - Capacity 4 units - [Quantity: 4] Jan 25 20:30:56 <HashiBot> <Reina> Can I fold up the Courier bags, by any chance?

Jan 25 20:31:35 <HashiBot> <Reina> And the Utility Rigs are how much weight, folded? Jan 25 20:31:39 <HashiBot> <Tempest> 2 each Jan 25 20:32:10 * HashiBot has quit (Ping timeout: 121 seconds) Jan 25 20:32:19 <HashiBot> <Reina> So I need 22 space- that's not too bad. Jan 25 20:32:21 <HashiBot> <Reina> OKAY, SO. Jan 25 20:32:28 <HashiBot> <Reina> First, set my bag down. Jan 25 20:32:36 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _You spent a turn to do so._ Jan 25 20:33:09 <HashiBot> <Reina> Second, load the last 1 Magnum buck into my Browning, followed by 8 more from the Bag. Jan 25 20:34:50 <HashiBot> <Reina> Third, place 10 Standard Buck, 10 Tactical Rubber Buck, and 20 Standard Buck into the Vest, for 2 weight. Jan 25 20:35:13 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _According to my end, you have 4 shells of Magnum P-Buck in the Vest, so you'd only need to take 5 out from the bag. Is that still OK?_ Jan 25 20:35:50 <HashiBot> <Reina> That is fine. Jan 25 20:36:42 <HashiBot> <Reina> Then I'll fold all the bags and 3 of the Rigs. Jan 25 20:37:09 <HashiBot> <Reina> Shove all the bags and 2 rigs into the Bag, 1 Rig into the Vest. Jan 25 20:38:15 <HashiBot> <Tempest> OK. Let's do that in order. First, loading the shotgun... First 4 shells will take 2 turns, last five will take 2 more turns... Jan 25 20:39:11 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _You ran out of 12 gauge, Magnum P-Buck from your Vest/Main, and you're down to 5 remaining in the backpack._ Jan 25 20:39:15 <HashiBot> <Tempest> Vest/Main: 3.5/8 Jan 25 20:39:21 <HashiBot> <Tempest> Backpack/Main: 129.09 /150 Jan 25 20:39:32 <HashiBot> <Tempest> Auto-5 RA [8+1 /8] - 9x 12 gauge, Magnum Plated Buckshot Jan 25 20:40:20 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _Next, you're going to fold 7 LBE items, which will take 7 turns..._ Jan 25 20:42:07 <Hebizuka> [LBE] (Backpack) Courier bag - Folded down - [Quantity: 4] Jan 25 20:42:07 <Hebizuka> [LBE] (Leg rig) Condor utility rig - Folded down - [Quantity: 3] Jan 25 20:43:26 <HashiBot> <Tempest> You said all 4 bags + 2 leg rigs in the backpack, and one of the leg rigs in the Vest? Jan 25 20:43:56 <HashiBot> <Tempest> You have enough space in Vest/Main to stick the last two leg rigs in there, if you want.

It's specifically addressed to younger or inexperienced contractors (which you fit perfectly, so I figured you might be interested). The employer is a retired Maze Guard, from right here, in Joliet Sector. He says he is willing to offer accelerated lessons on, and I quote: "the art and craft of handloading ammunition". But there's one condition. Jan 25 21:43:48 <HashiBot> <Reina> "I gotta give him a happy ending before he'll blow his load on me? Sounds good." Jan 25 21:44:03 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Hirer]** Actually, no. The condition is that he wants you to bring you 300 P$ of your own money, and 50 rounds of 9x19mm. He wants Standard FMJ. I have no idea why he specifically wants that, but that's part of the conditions. Oh, and he added, "and a little time". There's no reward listed, but I figure he'll hash it out with you. Jan 25 21:44:41 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Hirer]** I'm sure that if you want the ammo, you can find that at the local weapon shops, or something. P sure they'll have some for sale.

Jan 25 22:39:51 <HashiBot> <Reina> "What can I say, I like lots of shots all over the face over one thick blast." Jan 25 22:40:05 <HashiBot> <Reina> "Yeah, that's all, 150 for the whole shebang." Jan 25 22:41:06 <HashiBot> <Reina> And then I'll go to the boring bar. Jan 25 22:41:14 <HashiBot> <Reina> The boring bar filled with Mazeworld Guards. Jan 25 22:41:17 <HashiBot> <Reina> Who are drunk. Jan 25 22:41:19 <HashiBot> <Reina> And off duty. Jan 25 22:41:23 <HashiBot> <Reina> And liable to shoot me in the face. Jan 25 22:41:27 <HashiBot> <Reina> As I talk to a retired guard. Jan 25 22:41:31 <HashiBot> <Reina> Man this is such a fucking bad idea. Jan 25 22:48:27 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Shop owner]** Alright then, let me go get you your ammo... Jan 25 22:48:51 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _You paid 150 P$ in cash for three boxes of ammo which will be listed in a second._ Jan 25 22:50:37 <Hebizuka> [Ammunition] Box of 9x19mm Parabellum, Standard FMJ, 50 rounds - [50/50] - Weight: 0.5 (0.01 per round) Jan 25 22:50:37 <Hebizuka> [Ammunition] Box of 12 gauge, Standard Plated Buckshot, 10 rounds - [10/10] - Weight: 0.5 (0.05 per round) Jan 25 22:50:37 <Hebizuka> [Ammunition] Box of 12 gauge, Standard Rubber Buckshot, 10 rounds - [10/10] - Weight: 0.5 (0.05 per round) Jan 25 22:53:04 <HashiBot> <Reina> Alright, those get shoved into the bag, and then we'll go to the Bar for Master Powder. Jan 25 22:53:16 <HashiBot> <Reina> Ales and Drinks, I think the guy said. Jan 25 22:54:34 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _You now carry a total of 20 Standard Plated Buckshot shells._ Jan 25 22:54:43 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _In the backpack, that is._ Jan 25 22:57:31 <HashiBot> <Tempest> Backpack / Main: 73.59 /150 Jan 25 22:59:56 <HashiBot> <Reina> "Muuuuuch lighter Now the biggest weight on my back are my titties." Jan 25 23:00:07 <HashiBot> <Reina> Okay, TO THE BAR. Jan 25 23:03:24 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _You leave the gun shop and travel back to the social square center, in order to find the Ales and Drinks, the -other- bar, the one that the locals tend to like more... And by locals, it means "Mostly the cops". It takes 13 rooms to get there._ Jan 25 23:03:57 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _Once inside, you notice that... it's pretty much a bar at 5 AM. There is barely anyone except some **fantastically** drunk people sitting quietly with their bottles in the corner. The counter can be found one room to the east._ Jan 25 23:04:33 <HashiBot> <Reina> Well, at least I haveenough money to buy some good will. I'll pop into the counter area to look for Master Powder. Jan 25 23:04:51 <HashiBot> <Reina> "Hey, Master Powder, you got a willing student with 300 bucks and a box of ammo~" Jan 25 23:06:21 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Barkeep]** Oh, so you're looking for that old coot, eh? I didn't think his ad at the hiring bureau would actually bring someone. Jan 25 23:07:24 <HashiBot> <Reina> "I'm bored, and what can I say? I fucking love thick, heavy, packed loads." Jan 25 23:07:37 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Barkeep]** Sorry to disappoint, but... I'm sure you're not going to be that surprised if I tell you that it's a bit too early, right? Though usually he's up by 6 sharp, so... If you come back at around 6:30, the Master should be coming here for a drink and a couple of stories. Jan 25 23:08:21 <HashiBot> <Reina> "That's fine. Don't suppose you and I can pass some time together, then?" Jan 25 23:09:02 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _If you wait 14 turns (84 minutes), it will be 6:34 AM._ Jan 25 23:09:40 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Barkeep]** Hey, honestly, any fresh face that's still capable of carrying a conversation is fine by me. Better than another drunk. So, let's talk! Jan 25 23:10:46 <HashiBot> <Reina> "Well, first, I'd like to buy 6 Energy Drinks, 5 Colas, 6 Coffees, and 6 Lemonades. Trust me, I'm good for it." Jan 25 23:11:13 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Barkeep]** Well, darn, lady. I have a bit of an idea why you look so energetic at five in the morning, now. Jan 25 23:11:47 <HashiBot> <Reina> "Oh trust me, I need a special kind of drink to get it up. This just tides me over." Jan 25 23:13:33 <HashiBot> <Reina> After that, well - how's my Nutrition? I can wait 80 turns and charge up my TB. Jan 25 23:15:35 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Barkeep]** Hah, whatever you say. That tallies up to... Jan 25 23:15:37 <Hebizuka> < Joliet Sector - Joliet Ales and Drinks > Jan 25 23:15:37 <Hebizuka> BUY Jan 25 23:15:37 <Hebizuka> 6x Energy drink - 300 P$ Jan 25 23:15:37 <Hebizuka> 5x Cola drink - 75 P$ Jan 25 23:15:37 <Hebizuka> 6x Black coffee - 30 P$ Jan 25 23:15:37 <Hebizuka> 6x Lemonade - 60 P$ Jan 25 23:15:37 <Hebizuka> TOTAL due to shop 465 P$ Jan 25 23:15:48 <HashiBot> <Tempest> [Nutrition: 2122 ntri - OK] Jan 25 23:16:51 <HashiBot> <Reina> Suh weet. 465 from my wallet, shove all the drinks into the bag. Jan 25 23:17:07 <HashiBot> <Reina> Drop the bag, eat 2 French Fries, and then regenerate 8 TB for 80 turns and 2000 Nutrition. Jan 25 23:19:09 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _These actions will not cause time to pass, just as a reminder. Is that okay?_ Jan 25 23:21:24 <HashiBot> <Reina> That's fine. Jan 25 23:27:45 <HashiBot> <Reina> Afterwards, I'll eat another 2 French Fries, and Wait for a few turns. Jan 25 23:32:11 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _Alright then._ Jan 25 23:32:35 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _You spend a turn to drop the bag, and two more to eat the first batch of fries. Although cold, they're still salty._ Jan 25 23:33:26 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _You spend 80 turns and burn 2000 ntri to start the process of generating 8 Tanuki Balls, during which you grow silent, to the surprise of the barkeep._ Jan 25 23:33:44 <HashiBot> <Tempest> [Tanuki Balls: 10 /10] Jan 25 23:36:03 <HashiBot> <Reina> "Sorry, it's a Tanuki thing." I say afterwards -and between shoving more fries down my gullet. "Gotta burn carbs to keep the customers ~coming~, eh? Ehhhhhhh?" Jan 25 23:36:26 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _You spend another 2 turns to stuff yourself full of more fries to avoid being hungry, then you take the drinks, all waiting for you on the counter._ Jan 25 23:36:39 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _3 boxes of fries remaining in the bag._ Jan 25 23:37:15 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _1453 P$ remaining in the money pouch._ Jan 25 23:37:50 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _You now have: 6 energy drinks, 7 cola drinks, 11 black coffees, and 11 lemonades._ Jan 25 23:38:01 <HashiBot> <Tempest> Backpack / Main: 92.59 /150 Jan 25 23:38:29 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Barkeep]** Right, I see. Well, I'm glad we don't really serve food here, I'd have been a little annoyed if you stuffed yourself full of fries I didn't sell you. Jan 25 23:38:41 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Barkeep]** Say... You said tanuki, right? Jan 25 23:39:16 <HashiBot> <Reina> "Well, do you want me to try your sausage? Because I'll have you know that I am an excellent taste tester." Jan 25 23:39:38 <HashiBot> <Reina> "Yup yup, best Youkai race. What's it to ya? Got a fantasy you want me to help come true?" Jan 25 23:41:31 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Barkeep]** No, I was just wondering if you're the tanuki that tried to pull this crazy shit in Semitas the other day. I heard he killed a shrine maiden. Jan 25 23:42:49 <HashiBot> <Reina> "Awww, that's a real shame. Those shrine maidens are really sexy; killing one's such a waste." Jan 25 23:43:23 <HashiBot> <Reina> Do I need to roll to Wait? Jan 25 23:44:48 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Barkeep]** _<Suspicious, but doesn't bring it up.>_ Yeah, real shame. Jan 25 23:45:12 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _No need to roll, simply to tell me how many turns you want to wait. 1 turn of Waiting is 6 minutes._ Jan 25 23:46:28 <HashiBot> <Reina> "Hey, a sister can like another sister." Jan 25 23:46:37 <HashiBot> <Reina> Wait 14 turns, please. Jan 25 23:48:20 <HashiBot> <Tempest> 14 turns pass ,during which you exchange inconsequential small talk about shrine maidens and pretty girls with the barkeep... Jan 25 23:50:16 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _6:34 AM. A couple of Maze Guards are dropping by to order coffee. Another customer enters, clad in a big cowboy hat with matching boots and a great big duster coat..._ Jan 25 23:50:53 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Barkeep]** Well, hey, here's the Master. Hey, old chap. Jan 25 23:51:00 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _The old cowboy looking fellow sits at the counter, next to you. He seems to be "Master Powder."_ Jan 25 23:52:01 <HashiBot> <Reina> "If you got loads, Master, I'm ready to take 'em." I slide the 300 bucks and the 50 rounds over to his side. "Usually people pay /me/ fora good time." Jan 25 23:52:01 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _It dawns on you that he's carrying a lever-action rifle, and a pair of handguns. Cowboy through and through._ Jan 25 23:53:25 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Master Powder]** _<He doesn't immediately answer to you, ordering a coffee first. When it's served to him, he takes a sip, and his face lights up as though the coffee literally gave him a good mood.>_ Well howdy, young youkai lady. I didn't think the person respondin' to my ad would look anything close to you, but hey, here y'are! Pleasure t'meet ya. I'm Charles Lyman, but most people call me Master Powder, 'round Jan 25 23:53:25 <HashiBot> here. Jan 25 23:54:06 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _You can almost hear "Big Iron" playing in the background._ Jan 25 23:55:35 <HashiBot> <Reina> "Hiya, handsome. It's not my first time answering an interesting ad, between you and me. Are you ready to show me how to handload a proper round?" Jan 25 23:56:57 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Lyman]** I see y'brought the stuff I asked you t'bring. Happy t'see yer eager to get a lesson of the Mazes' most beautiful art and craft. Lemme finish this here coffee, then you'll follow me outside, alright? Jan 25 23:57:54 <HashiBot> <Reina> "No problem, Master. Drink away." Jan 25 23:59:56 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _One turn passes. Cue him drinking a cup full of boiling hot coffee in a single stroke._ Jan 26 00:00:06 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _You wonder exactly how he does it._ Jan 26 00:00:42 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Lyman]** Yeehaw, old master's good for the day! Let's go, young youkai! Jan 26 00:01:26 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _The old Master Powder gets off of his seat with uncanny energy, and hops out and onto West Street 2, right outside of the bar._ Jan 26 00:04:28 <HashiBot> <Reina> "We're doing this back at your place, or at the gun range?" All the drinks are already in the bag, so I'll just grab that and follow on up with him. No sense giving the shittier bar more business than necessary. Jan 26 00:09:25 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _You follow him out on the street, where he seems to be waiting for you._ Jan 26 00:09:33 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Lyman]** Nope, we're doing that _right here_. Jan 26 00:10:11 <HashiBot> <Reina> "Alright, ready to learn, Lyman. Hit me up." Jan 26 00:10:25 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _S2-4 Objective 1 completed, and Objective 2 activated._ Jan 26 00:10:36 <HashiBot> <Tempest> 2) Complete your accelerated lesson on handloading. Jan 26 00:11:13 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _The old master drops his own backpack as well. One turn passes._ Jan 26 00:11:39 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _He retrieves a few supplies out of it; namely what appears to be an empty jar, and a big metallic box which reads "PISTOL HANDLOADING KIT"._ Jan 26 00:12:14 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Lyman]** Now, I want you t'pay attention and not to ask too many questions right away. Chances are everythin'll be answered in due time. Now, let's begin, shall we? Siddown in front of me. Jan 26 00:13:31 <HashiBot> <Reina> Ass, Meet Floor. Floor, ass. Jan 26 00:13:47 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _Basics of handloading!_ Jan 26 00:14:15 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Lyman]** First, I'm going to teach you the basics on gun ammunition. They're all composed of the same four parts: a **primer**, a **case (or shell)**, some **powder**, and a **projectile (or projectiles)**. Shotgun shells also have **wads**, but we won't be lookin' at shotgun shells today. Jan 26 00:14:43 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _The old master takes and opens the box of 9x19mm ammunition you bought._ Jan 26 00:15:27 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Lyman]** I want you to take the tools from my kit, and to start taking these rounds apart. You're gonna pull the bullets, dunk the powder in this here jar, then de-prime them. Y'should end up with 50 primers, 50 cases, a buncha powder, and 50 bullets. Jan 26 00:16:16 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _When using a handloading kit, you may manipulate a certain amount of rounds per turn. Manipulation includes **disassembling ammo**, **priming cases**, and **loading cases** (with powder and a projectile). Replace "cases" with "hulls" where applicable if you're working with shotgun shells._ Jan 26 00:16:59 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _As a beginner (Handloading skill Level 1), you may manipulate **5** rounds per turn, so it will take 10 turns to disassemble everything. Tell me when ready to spend the 10 turns to take the ammo apart._ Jan 26 00:18:24 <HashiBot> <Reina> Ten turns to disassemble the 9x19mm. Jan 26 00:22:46 <HashiBot> <Reina> Ready. Jan 26 00:25:00 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _10 turns pass, and you obtain the following items:_ Jan 26 00:26:13 <Hebizuka> [Handloading] Primer, small pistol (SP) - [Quantity: 50] - weight: 0.5 (0.01 per primer) Jan 26 00:26:13 <Hebizuka> [Handloading] Spent case, 9x19mm Parabellum - [Quantity: 50] - weight: 0.5 (0.01 per case) Jan 26 00:26:13 <Hebizuka> [Handloading] Projectile - .355, 115 grain - FMJ - [Quantity: 50] - weight: 0.5 (0.01 per bullet) Jan 26 00:26:25 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _You also used the empty jar to keep the powder, and you acquired:_ Jan 26 00:26:30 <Hebizuka> [Handloading] Jar of pistol powder, regular - weight: 0.5 - [Powder: 3350 /35000] Jan 26 00:27:01 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Lyman]** Now that y'have a visual on all th'basic components of each of these rounds, Imma start explaining a quick bit about everything, if y'dont mind. Jan 26 00:29:37 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **Cases and hulls:** Every time you fire a gun, your firing pin strikes a primer, which ignites the powder, causing a controlled explosion which is contained by your gun barrel, which in turn drives the bullet out and towards whatever it is yer aimin' at (and hopefully, yer hittin' it, too.) Jan 26 00:29:41 <HashiBot> <Tempest> If you're paying attention, you'll notice that you consume a primer, some powder, and a projectile, but I haven't talked about cases. Well, dependin' on th'guns, yer cases are automatically ejected (like in a semi-automatic pistol or rifle), or you have t'remove them yourself (like in a single-action revolver, or a lever-action rifle). Jan 26 00:29:51 <HashiBot> <Tempest> Whenever you're done shooting, look on the ground for cases! Sometimes they're too mangled or beat to be used again, but sometimes you'll find cases in good condition, which you can re-use later. Always look for extra cases if you got backpack space to spare! Oh, and, for shotguns, we say hulls instead of cases. I know, it's weird, but that's how it is. Jan 26 00:31:31 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _Handloading skill allows you to **check for spent cases** on the floor after combat. Although in theory, if you fired 30 rounds, you'd find 30 cases, not all of these cases can be reused because they're not always in a good enough shape. The higher the handloading skill, the more chances that each case you find may be used again - think of it as having a better and better eye for good cases._ Jan 26 00:31:55 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _At Level 1, there is a 10% chance per shot fired, unless the caliber you're shooting cannot be handloaded._ Jan 26 00:32:28 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _Got all of that?_ Jan 26 00:32:34 <HashiBot> <Reina> Yup. Jan 26 00:33:09 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **Primers:** Th'good thing 'bout ammo is that everything follows easy-to-understand standards once ya get the gist of it all. There are six types of primer: **SP, LP, SR, LR, LRM and MG.** Now what does all that mean? That means **Small Pistol, Large Pistol, Small Rifle, Large Rifle, Large Rifle Magnum, and Machine Gun.** Jan 26 00:33:22 <HashiBot> <Tempest> If you find some spiffy new case, you can usually tell what kind of primer it needs. As you can see, your 9x19mm cases take **SP** primers. Jan 26 00:33:55 <HashiBot> <Tempest> That all good fer ya so far? Jan 26 00:34:04 <HashiBot> <Reina> "Yup. What's next?" Jan 26 00:34:59 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **Powder types:** It's ev'n simpler, there are only two types of powder: **Pistol powder and Rifle powder**. Every different firearm caliber usually belongs to one of three categories, **(P)istol caliber, {S}hotgun caliber and [R]ifle caliber**; the first two take Pistol powder, the latter takes only Rifle powder, obviously. You can't use rifle powder in a case for a pistol caliber or the other way around. Jan 26 00:35:15 <HashiBot> <Tempest> O'course, 9x19mm is a (P)istol caliber so it needs Pistol powder. Jan 26 00:35:34 <HashiBot> <Tempest> But where things get interesting, is that for each type of powder, there are **three quality levels** of powder: **Regular (Reg), Surplus (Surp) and Premium (Prem).** Powder quality affects the performance of your ammunition. Jan 26 00:36:06 <HashiBot> <Tempest> If you use good old **Regular powder**, like the stuff that was in the ammo you just disassembled, yer gonna get good old, perfectly normal function. No advantages but no disadvantages eith'r. Jan 26 00:36:38 <HashiBot> <Tempest> If you use **Surplus powder**, you get very cheap powder than you can buy in bulk, but it is very dirty powder that will produce more grime and smoke; in more technical words, Surplus powder **triples your weapon's Cleanliness Wear Rate**, meaning they get dirty thrice as fast. Hope ya don't mind them cleaning kits. Jan 26 00:36:58 <HashiBot> <Tempest> If you use **Premium powder**, oh boy is that stuff valuable and expensive, and you might not find a lot of it, but you get very clean and consistent powder which barely leaves any residue. In other words, Premium powder **halves your weapon's Cleanliness Wear Rate**, meaning they get dirty only half as fast. It's pricey but it's worth it! Jan 26 00:37:11 <HashiBot> <Tempest> All good? Jan 26 00:38:10 <HashiBot> <Reina> "Yuuuuuup." Jan 26 00:39:33 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **Pressure level / Power:** What your jar of powder doesn't tell is that each of those rounds had a set amount of powder in it. Powder is measured in **Powder units (pwdr).** Jan 26 00:40:05 <HashiBot> <Tempest> Now, I'll tell you directly: that 9x19mm Standard FMJ stuff? Each round holds **67 pwdr** of Regular pistol powder. Multiply that by 50 and you have 3350 pwdr of that stuff in your powder jar right now. Now, the secret to that is, **some calibers can be loaded with a different amount of powder**, which in turn affects the performance of your ammo as well. Jan 26 00:40:29 <HashiBot> <Reina> "That's how you get the tactical and magnum rounds in shops right?" Jan 26 00:40:40 <HashiBot> <Tempest> To make it simple for you, you can use your handloading kit to adjust **which pressure level** you want your ammunition to reach. 67 pwdr in a 9x19mm case means **Standard Pressure**. Standard Pressure (SP) is the default, the industry standard amount of powder for that specific case for normal performance. There are four pressure levels in all. Jan 26 00:40:48 <HashiBot> <Tempest> Now, I'll get to tactical an' magnum in a second. Jan 26 00:41:16 <HashiBot> <Tempest> Most ammunition is loaded to **Standard Pressure (SP)**, as I explained before. It has no effects, it's the "default" level, for which it is, well, the standard. Jan 26 00:41:53 <HashiBot> <Tempest> You can sometimes find ammunition loaded one level under Standard, which is called **Reduced Pressure (-P)**. Some enthusiasts like me call those "cold loads" because they're not as strong as standard. In shotgun shells, they'll be called **Tactical loads (TAC)**, but it's the same thing. Reduced pressure loads send the projectiles at a lower velocity, meaning they're less powerful, but also recoil less and wear Jan 26 00:41:53 <HashiBot> weapons less. Jan 26 00:42:11 <HashiBot> <Tempest> Sometimes, you'll find ammunition loaded one level above Standard; those are called **High Pressure (+P)**, or what we call "hot loads". With shotgun shells, we call those **Magnum loads (MAG)**. Logically, high pressure loads have higher velocity than normal, thus making such ammunition more powerful, more recoiling, and increases wear rate. Jan 26 00:42:27 <HashiBot> <Tempest> And in rare cases, you'll find ammunition loaded two levels above standard; those are called **Very High Pressure (+P+)**, or sometimes, "**Super loads**"; because it's "super-hot", get me? They're even higher velocity than +P, making then even more powerful, but also recoiling even more and wearing out weapons even faster. Jan 26 00:43:47 <HashiBot> <Tempest> Now, not all calibers can be loaded ta' any level. Rifle calibers only go up to **-P (TAC) and SP**, but shotgun calibers can go up to **+P (MAG)** and pistol calibers can be turned into hot li'l fireballs all the way up to **+P+**. Jan 26 00:45:11 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _Standard (SP): 1.0x powder, 1x damage, Wear Rate x1, Recoil +0 Reduced (-P): 0.9x powder, 0.8x damage, Wear Rate x0.5, Recoil -1 High (+P): 1.1x powder, 1.2x damage, Wear Rate x2, Recoil +1 Super (+P+): 1.2x powder, 1.4x damage, Wear Rate x4, Recoil +2_ Jan 26 00:45:22 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _That all clear?_ Jan 26 00:45:29 <HashiBot> <Reina> Yup. Jan 26 00:46:15 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **Projectiles:** The last part and perhaps the most interesting part in each round of ammo is the projectile. When I hear the word "bullet", that's what ya should be thinkin' of. Th'whole cartridge ain't a bullet, okay? Projectiles have two important factors: their size, and their type. Jan 26 00:46:37 <HashiBot> <Tempest> Projectile size: The size of a projectile must be compatible with the case in order to be loaded. With the exception of shotgun calibers, each caliber is only compatible with one projectile size, but projectiles of a given size may fit one or more different cases. Jan 26 00:46:56 <HashiBot> <Tempest> Projectile type, or the so-called "bullet type": The type of a projectile affects the performance of your ammunition too. (Have you noticed how many things can affect performance?) Projectile type is written using the same notation as on retail ammo boxes: FMJ, JHP, AP, and so on. Jan 26 00:47:20 <HashiBot> <Tempest> The bullets you extracted from these 9x19mm rounds are **.355, 115 grain - FMJ.** Jan 26 00:48:06 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **".355, 115 grain"** represents their **size**, and **"FMJ"** is their type. Only .355, 115 grain projectiles can be loaded into a 9x19mm case, but projectile type doesn't matter. As long as case and projectile are compatible, you can load any projectile type you wish. (I hear you askin', "Are there any other calibers that can take bullets of this size?" Well, I'll leave ya with a riddle. **Yes, there are**, but Jan 26 00:48:06 <HashiBot> **up to you to find out!**) Jan 26 00:48:45 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Lyman]** And that concludes th' theory. Ya got all of that? Ya got any questions? I'm ready to hear 'em. Jan 26 00:49:06 <HashiBot> <Reina> "No, I'm pretty good.' Jan 26 00:49:13 <HashiBot> <Reina> "Seems easy enough." Jan 26 00:49:20 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Lyman]** Good. I'm hopin' yer a quick li'l learner there. Jan 26 00:49:23 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _Practical lessons!_ Jan 26 00:50:13 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Lyman]** Now, let's have you actually makin' some ammo. So ya got cases, primers, powder, and one kind of bullet. If ya wanted to, y'could re-assemble these 50 rounds exactly as they were and not look twice. But there ain't no fun in doin' that! Jan 26 00:51:01 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Lyman]** Earlier y'were askin' me if that's how you got "tactical" and "magnum" printed on ammo boxes. Well. Ya probably also noticed brand names, like "Standard", or "Personal Defense", or "Milsurp" 'n whatnot, right? Jan 26 00:54:48 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Lyman]** Well, there ain't no real secret about it. All of these brand names correspond to different loads, followed by the projectile type. Factory loaded ammo that y'can buy in a store is no different from th' ammo y'make yourself, if you load it exactly th'same. But you, as a handloader, can make combinations **that don't exist on th'market, and make YER own ammo really YOUR own.** Jan 26 00:55:25 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Lyman]** "9x19mm Parabellum, Standard FMJ" means 9x19mm Parabellum loaded with Regular powder, Standard pressure, FMJ projectiles. There is a notation system for that, we'd say **(Reg/SP/FMJ)** to quickly breakdown exactly what's in those rounds. That notation will be important later. For now, let's get down to the practical lessons. Jan 26 00:55:53 <HashiBot> <Reina> "Sounds good - so, what, you want me to make a few non-market standard loads?" Jan 26 00:56:11 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Lyman]** Here, y'can use th'kit. Use the tools t'put together 10 rounds exactly as they were before. We'll make sum' non-standard ones next. Jan 26 00:56:22 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _Ready to use the handloading kit again?_ Jan 26 00:58:24 <HashiBot> <Reina> Yup. So, that's 10 rounds of Reg/SP/FMJ, two turns to make? Jan 26 00:58:56 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _You'll be loading 10 rounds of Reg/SP/FMJ ("Standard FMJ"). In actuality, it will take 4 turns._ Jan 26 00:59:17 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _2 turns to **prime 10 cases**, and then 2 more to **load 10 primed cases**. At the end of which you will get 10 rounds._ Jan 26 00:59:33 <HashiBot> <Reina> Faster to disassemble than put them back together, I see. Jan 26 00:59:34 <HashiBot> <Reina> Alright. Jan 26 01:00:34 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _Resources required:_ Jan 26 01:00:36 <Hebizuka> PRIMING: Jan 26 01:00:36 <Hebizuka> 10x Primer, SP Jan 26 01:00:36 <Hebizuka> 10x Spent case, 9x19mm Parabellum Jan 26 01:00:36 <Hebizuka> 2 turns Jan 26 01:00:36 <Hebizuka> => 10x Primed case, 9x19mm Parabellum Jan 26 01:00:36 <Hebizuka> LOADING: Jan 26 01:00:36 <Hebizuka> 10x Primed case, 9x19mm Parabellum Jan 26 01:00:36 <Hebizuka> 670x Pistol powder Jan 26 01:00:36 <Hebizuka> 10x Projectile, .355, 115 grain - FMJ Jan 26 01:00:36 <Hebizuka> 2 turns Jan 26 01:00:36 <Hebizuka> => 10x 9x19mm Parabellum, Standard FMJ Jan 26 01:01:37 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _Is this okay?_ Jan 26 01:04:07 <HashiBot> <Reina> Yup.

Jan 26 01:16:06 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Lyman]** Now, I know th'popular thing is t'load th'hottest and most powerful ammo imaginable, but it ain't safe 'til you're good at it. Before you can make **+P/MAG** or **+P+** ammo, yer gonna need experience first. Jan 26 01:16:25 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _+P/MAG loads can be made at Lv3 - Skilled, and +P+/Super loads can be made at Lv4 - Expert._ Jan 26 01:17:00 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Lyman]** In th'meantime, why not practice by making cold loads? Go ahead 'n make me 10 rounds of (Reg/-P/JHP). Jan 26 01:18:43 <HashiBot> <Reina> 4 turns for 10 rounds Reg/-P/JHP, then.

Jan 26 01:24:34 <HashiBot> <Reina> If I end up using it regularly, I'll think about a name. Jan 26 01:24:42 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _OK. You always have the option to give it a name later, and you may be prompted every time you create a new recipe._ Jan 26 01:26:48 <HashiBot> <Reina> "So, I imagine that the workshops sell the handloading stuff?" Jan 26 01:27:48 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Lyman]** And this concludes th'lesson! Now, I'm gonna take back my handloading kit, and I don't want no disappointment, okay? Them kits are expensive. If y'want yer own, yer gonna need to find one, or buy one. But t'give you a little motivation, I'mma pay your yer money back plus give ya a li'l extra. Jan 26 01:28:11 <Hebizuka> [Money] 800 P$ Jan 26 01:29:09 <HashiBot> <Reina> "Cha ching. Looks I /did/ get paid for a good time."

As for where you can find all them components, y'can buy primers, cases, powder, and even bullets at gun shops and weapon shops. But them kits, yer gonna need to find 'em at a workshop.

Jan 26 01:31:26 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Lyman]** If yer gonna be loadin' for shotguns, you'll need a Shotgun handloading kit, Pistol powder, and don't forget **wads**.

Jan 26 01:32:58 <HashiBot> <Reina> I have no time for pistol shenanegins. Jan 26 01:33:15 <HashiBot> <Reina> To the workshop to sell some phones, and see if they have shotgun goodies. Jan 26 01:33:30 <HashiBot> <Reina> Then I'll probably... head for Garica Block.

Jan 26 01:44:29 <HashiBot> <Tempest> And of course, you have unlocked the Handloading Skill and are now Lv1. Jan 26 01:46:08 <HashiBot> <Reina> Cool. Workshop tiiiiiiime.

Got any shotgun loading kits?" Jan 26 01:53:46 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Engineer]** Plastic bottles? Maaan... That's not even worth shit, but if you really don't want it anymore, I'll pay a Parallar for it. Jan 26 01:54:21 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Engineer]** As for the phones, I'll buy two for 300 P$. Deal? Jan 26 01:55:30 <HashiBot> <Reina> "Sounds good." Jan 26 01:56:41 <HashiBot> <Reina> Place the bag down, take out the phones, keep the batteries, sell the bottle, aaand - I'll take out two coffees to drink and take the edge off. Jan 26 01:58:29 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _You sold 1 empty plastic bottles and 2 mobile phones (sans batteries) for 301 P$._ Jan 26 01:58:47 <Hebizuka> [Item] Mobile phone battery.

Oh there they are. Yeah. I have one of each, actually. Did you want just the one, or all three? Jan 26 02:11:34 <HashiBot> <Reina> "Fuck it, I have money to splurge. Give 'em to me baby." Jan 26 02:12:06 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Engineer]** Okay so... The pistol kit is 2000 P$, the rifle kit is 3000 P$, and the shotgun kit is 2500 P$. So that comes up to 7500 P$ if you want all three. Jan 26 02:12:33 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _Counting the shop credit, the money in the pouch, and your entire bank account, you only have 7442 P$._ Jan 26 02:12:37 <HashiBot> <Reina> "Actually, wait, not the rifle kit what am I smoking." Jan 26 02:12:49 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Engineer]** 4500 without the rifle kit then. Jan 26 02:13:11 <HashiBot> <Reina> I'll dial up the bank to transfer 4500 plus whatever fee they need.

None of them are in Garica Block, but there's plenty on the _way_ there, or nearby. Care to take a look? Jan 26 03:06:47 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Hirer]** Be a waste not to take a job if you're going that way. Jan 26 03:06:53 <HashiBot> <Reina> "Sure, beggers can't be choosers. What do we have?" Jan 26 03:07:05 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Hirer]** Here's the courier jobs first.

Okay, can I take a look at the merc jobs first?" Jan 26 03:10:14 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Hirer]** Sure. Jan 26 03:10:20 <Hebizuka> Mercenary Contracts - Contracts available: 7 (7 Minor, 0 Major) Jan 26 03:10:20 <Hebizuka> Same-zone contracts Jan 26 03:10:20 <Hebizuka> (EZ) Rog: Marauders (100 P$ per head, 5 targets, Shop hub street 2) Jan 26 03:10:20 <Hebizuka> (EZ) Intersection 11: Marauders (100 P$ per head, 3 targets, South Street 2) Jan 26 03:10:20 <Hebizuka> (EZ) Intersection 09: Desperados (150 P$ per head, 3 targets, North Street 2) Jan 26 03:10:20 <Hebizuka> Adjacent-zone contracts Jan 26 03:10:20 <Hebizuka> (NEZ) Intersection 01: Desperados (150 P$ per head, 5 targets, East Street 2) Jan 26 03:10:20 <Hebizuka> (NEZ) Station Delta: Marauders (100 P$ per head, 4 targets, Shop hub street 2) Jan 26 03:10:20 <Hebizuka> (SEZ) Sirvarris: Marauders (100 P$ per head, 5 targets, Town gate) Jan 26 03:10:20 <Hebizuka> Far-away contracts Jan 26 03:10:20 <Hebizuka> (SZ) Station Sigma: Marauders (100 P$ per head, 2 targets, Generator control room) Jan 26 03:11:40 <HashiBot> <Reina> "And can I take multiple jobs at once? I'm thinking the Intersection 11, and 9 jobs while taking stuff to Arnett might be worth my time." Jan 26 03:13:55 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Hirer]** You can take multiple jobs at once right now, but you have to finish them before taking new ones. Jan 26 03:14:20 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Hirer]** We gotta avoid couriers and would-be mercs going all around to plug all the contracts and never finish them, you know. Jan 26 03:15:01 <HashiBot> <Reina> "That's fine. Then I'll take both the Arnett courier jobs, and the Intersection 11 and 9 jobs." Jan 26 03:15:27 <HashiBot> <Reina> "Oh, and sign me up for that Garica job too." Jan 26 03:16:54 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Hirer]** I've got 3 trading missions to Arnett, but do you have 90 units of space available in your bag? Jan 26 03:17:14 <HashiBot> <Reina> "Not the cigs. Those death sticks will kill ya." Jan 26 03:17:32 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Hirer]** Oh, they will, but they're good money, so better sell 'em than smoke 'em! _<Smile.>_ Jan 26 03:18:03 <Hebizuka> _Trading Missions accepted:_ Jan 26 03:18:03 <Hebizuka> (EZ) Dest: Arnett, LBE (M1956 Webbing x2 - 10 units) Jan 26 03:18:03 <Hebizuka> (EZ) Dest: Arnett, LBE (M1956 Webbing x6 - 30 units) Jan 26 03:18:03 <Hebizuka> _Mercenary Contracts accepted:_ Jan 26 03:18:03 <Hebizuka> (EZ) Intersection 11: Marauders (100 P$ per head, 3 targets, South Street 2) Jan 26 03:18:03 <Hebizuka> (EZ) Intersection 09: Desperados (150 P$ per head, 3 targets, North Street 2) Jan 26 03:20:04 <HashiBot> <Reina> "Pick everything up at the bank, right?" Jan 26 03:21:09 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Hirer]** Pick up the packages at the bank, yeah. They'll tell you the delivery destination. I think they have a clothing shop in Arnett? That's probably where you're going to deliver 'em. Jan 26 03:22:25 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Hirer]** Now, about that job in Garica Block. Jan 26 03:23:09 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Hirer]** This job comes from a man who describes himself as a "reformed gangster, turned scavenger". He says he's found a cache of loot somewhere in the UA, but because he cannot carry everything home, he'd willing to take someone else to tag along with him and split the loot, which serves as the payment. Jan 26 03:23:25 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Hirer]** He adds that he'll add lockpicking lessons as a reward and that he'll take in priority people who are unskilled at it. He also says that he'd rather teach newbies than make another old dog like him richer. So, yeah, a little lockpicking lesson and some free stuff. Sound good to you? Jan 26 03:24:17 <HashiBot> <Reina> "Pfffffffffffffffffffffft. Yeah, sure, why not?" Jan 26 03:24:27 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Hirer]** Alright, I'll lock that job in for you too. Jan 26 03:24:41 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _<Sidequest S2-3 activated: **Hidden Treasures**>_ Jan 26 03:25:44 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _You now have 1 sidequest active, 2 trading missions active, and 2 mercenary contracts active._ Jan 26 03:25:52 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _Go to the bank and pick up your trading mission packages now._ Jan 26 03:26:12 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Hirer]** Will that be all, Super Woman? Jan 26 03:27:05 <HashiBot> <Reina> "Yup yup. Wish me luck out there." Jan 26 03:35:04 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Hirer]** Okay, great. Hurry on at the bank, they're waiting for you. Jan 26 03:35:13 <HashiBot> <Reina> "Right, right. Bank it is." Jan 26 03:36:18 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _3 rooms later, and you are at your destination. Because all Town Security in a police town is made out of Maze Guards, you see three Maze Guards doing security duty at the bank. They stare at you with the stink-eye, but don't pipe up._ Jan 26 03:37:36 <HashiBot> <Reina> "Touching's only for paying customers, handsomes." I blatantly saunter towards the bank dealer, letting my most obvious features sway and jiggle with just the shake of my hips. Jan 26 03:37:43 <HashiBot> <Reina> "Two packages to Arnett." Jan 26 03:38:17 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Hirer]** Ah, yes yes yes, I just got the notification on my computer. So you're taking two packages, yes? The two small ones, right? Not the big one. Jan 26 03:38:30 <HashiBot> <Reina> "I only take the big ones in private." Jan 26 03:38:46 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Hirer]** _<Oblivious like only a nerd would be.>_ Yes yes yes, good good good. Okay. Lemme go get 'em for you. Jan 26 03:41:01 <HashiBot> <Reina> "Is he always this oblivious?" Might as well make small talk with the Guards while I'm here. Jan 26 03:41:51 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Guard #3]** Yeah, he's kind of a huge nerd, don't mind him. Jan 26 03:42:01 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Guard #2]** Legend has it he's never seen a pussy in his life! Jan 26 03:42:08 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _#1 pffts and snrrks._ Jan 26 03:43:02 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _The banker comes back, and the Guards resume pretending they're silent._ Jan 26 03:43:14 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Banker]** There, I got your packages. Gosh they're heavy, too. Jan 26 03:43:35 <HashiBot> <Reina> "I bet you're used to handling heavy things all the time, huh?" Jan 26 03:43:37 <Hebizuka> [Trading Mission package] (Level: * Cold) - Merchandise: M1956 Webbing x2 - 10 units - Destination: Arnett, Clothing shop - Cargo value: 600 P$ - Delivery commission: 10% Jan 26 03:43:37 <Hebizuka> [Trading Mission package] (Level: * Cold) - Merchandise: M1956 Webbing x6 - 30 units - Destination: Arnett, Clothing shop - Cargo value: 1800 P$ - Delivery commission: 10% Jan 26 03:44:35 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Banker]** N-no, not really actually. It's a chore to carry heavy stuff around. I signed up to become a banker thinking I was gonna mostly be sitting there, typing numbers on my computer, and be safe and secure, but it turns out I have to move a lot of heavy crap. _<Annoying sigh>_ Anyway, here's your packages. Same destination for both of them. At least I don't have -your- job... Jan 26 03:45:29 <HashiBot> <Reina> "Oh trust me honey, my job has quite a few perks. How about I come back and show you a good time, once I'm back from Arnett?" Jan 26 03:46:02 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Banker]** Oh, uh, sorry. My shift ends at 8 AM. I can't wait to go home and sleep. I don't have time to be shown around. Jan 26 03:46:13 <HashiBot> <Tempest> _You heard one of the Guards sigh. You swear one of them muttered the word "Virgin."_ Jan 26 03:47:36 <HashiBot> <Reina> "Oh, fine. Don't suppose you guys are interested in a little fun time with a naughty girl like me? I've been terribly curious 'bout those handcuffs they all give you." Jan 26 03:47:50 <HashiBot> <Reina> "I'll give you a special discount - call it community service?" Jan 26 03:48:53 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Guard #3]** Oh I'd be _all_ for naughty time with a bad girl like you. You even have the bad reputation that goes with it! Jan 26 03:49:03 <HashiBot> <Reina> YEAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH. Jan 26 03:49:12 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Guard #1]** Wow, didn't think you'd want to have your dick sucked by a youkai, Ben. Jan 26 03:49:27 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Guard #2]** Yeah? The surprising thing is he wants it from a convicted felon! Jan 26 03:49:48 <HashiBot> <Reina> "Haven't you heard all that military propaganda? Youkai are meant to be on their knees and begging for mercy." Jan 26 03:49:54 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Banker]** _<Visibly distressed.>_ Okay, that's ENOUGH talking about... d-dirty things in MY bank. Get out! And you three big dumb-heads, shut up already! Jan 26 03:50:37 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Guard #3]** Careful, Sheldon. I heard she killed a shrine maiden. Whatchu think she might do to your scrawny ass? Jan 26 03:50:40 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Banker]** ENOUGH! Jan 26 03:50:49 <HashiBot> <Reina> "kay, okay - but Ben, got a number? Let's arrange something between you and I." I'll take a nice, looong appreciative look at my new best friend. And let him take a look at me. Jan 26 03:52:10 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Guard #3]** Hm, well, I can't really do this on duty but... Tell you what, how much do you charge for a, y'know, a quickie? _<He makes the gesture of a blowjob, so as to avoid annoying poor Sheldon any further.>_ Jan 26 03:54:12 <HashiBot> <Reina> "Well, like I said - Guards get the Community Service discount. let's call it a nice and even 200, and we can talk about extra services after you get a taste?" Jan 26 03:56:24 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Guard #3]** 200? Damn, but, I guess that's the exotic markup... Tell you what, if you're in town this evening, let's say at around 7 PM or so before I start my next shift, we can talk shop. I suppose you know the Joliet Ales and Drinks, the bar? Jan 26 03:59:06 <HashiBot> <Reina> "Trust me, handsome, you get what you pay for. And I was just there talking to Master Powder, I know the joint." Jan 26 04:00:09 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Guard #3]** Oh, that old dude? I heard of him. He's a bit nutty but he's fine, I guess. Heard he was a damn fine cop. Alright, then, it's settled. Meet me at 7 PM, but no later than 8 PM here at the A-and-D. Jan 26 04:01:51 <HashiBot> <Reina> "Sounds like a plan. Make sure to brag to your buddies here once I'm done milking you dry, handsome~" Jan 26 04:02:26 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Guard #3]** Oh I'd rather not brag too much, yknow. Be bad for _my_ career. _<Wink.>_ Jan 26 04:05:26 <HashiBot> <Reina> "Well, I'd let you inspect the goods, but maybe that'll have to wait. Don't want to add public indecency onto my rap sheet." Jan 26 04:05:48 <HashiBot> <Reina> "Ta ta, Ben. I'll see you around." Jan 26 04:07:55 <HashiBot> <Tempest> **[Guard #3]** Hell yeah, that's gonna be a great early gift right out of bed for me. Jan 26 04:08:37 <HashiBot> <Reina> "I'm all about treating morning woods!" Jan 26 04:09:05 <Hebizuka> [Session end!]
