Toe 04

[F2001] With the morning, coming the sound of rumbling from outside of the enclosed park area. It's a distant sort of rumbling though, like something heaving moving far off. Otherwise, it's been nice and peaceful.
Sohl has the coffee already brewing.
Sohl: "That's a bit of foresight for ya'. We'll need this kick to kick whatever made that noise. Or get around it, heh!"
Shuu sits on a bench, having spent a good deal of the night doing general maitenance work around the park. He stares in the distance
Shuu: "Yeah, i've a feeling it's going to be getting in our way"
Harino does some cooldown stretches after her morning practice. "…Yes, that's just a little ominous."
Yin sits up, stretching and sniffing for the coffee.
Wrench puts her gun back together with a ra-chunk-chunk. She leans against it, stroking her chin. "Well, when y'all ready."
Yin: "I'm hoping the nice park is sign of this floor being overall simpler to traverse. But it is just a hope"
Harino: "You wouldn't happen to have any cream or sugar for that coffee, would you?"
Sohl downs a cup- there's one cube of sugar available for every cup, but creamer is only in your dreams- and shakes off the sleep, with a 'BLUHBLUHBLUHBLUHBLUH' and shake of the head. He rights his hat and stands up.
Sohl: "Haven't run across good powdered creamer in a while, and the liquid stuff, ho ho, well, that went bad seeeeveral floors back."
Wrench: "I mean, hell, who knows?" Wrench peers off into the distance. "Maybe we'll wrestle a cow into camp sometime. Could luck out."
Harino makes a slightly displeased face at the lack of cream, but does take the sugar cube with her cup. "…Ah. That makes sense."
Shuu drinks his share of coffee, it's likely less than anyone else's "Wasn't one of the floors supposed to have dairy production?"
Wrench flashes a grin at Shuu. "Well, we'll eat like kings then."
Shuu: "Indeed"
Shuu stands up and stretches "Well, let's hope this floor is doing better than the previous ones. I'm set to go"
Wrench hunches her shoulders and slips out from the park, ready to blaze the trail. [Navigation]
Yin finishes her coffee with semireligious reverance. "I'm ready as well. Thanks for the supply sharing Sohl"
Wrench rolled 4d6 and got 5, 4, 2, 3 ( Total: 14 ) for 2 + 1 + 1
Sohl triple-extinguishes the campfire. "Don't mention it~!"
Harino nods her thanks after finishing her cup, then finishes getting her gear together. "All set."
Yin: "Did you find any good paths while you were out foraging last night Wrench? Or maybe a sign to the next stairwell?"
PseudoGM: After opening the gates and stepping out onto the floor proper: well, it's a lot less forested, that's for sure. It looks like a large chunk of the area has been turned into a dumping ground. Most of the stuff doesn't really look broken, just old or worn down, or not quite working right. There's signs that people ocassionally come down to sift through the junk and scavange and salvage various parts. There's a few different pathways leading between the large piles of chunk and the still forested areas near the edges of the tower, but neither really looks more appealing than any other.
Wrench turns back over her shoulder to look at Yin - "Eh, I got a hunch."
Sohl: "Ho hooooooooo… man. If only I had a cart!"
Yin looking around at the junk "Well… that's better than nothing. Sohl, you knew what the park was, but why is the park here among all this???"
Sohl tilts his head back, and takes a deeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeep breath.
Sohl: "No idea!"
Yin: "Very strange"
Sohl: "I'm pretty sure there's a mundane reason for all the trashpiles."
Harino: "Maybe we can ask at the next town."
Sohl: "Laziness, or some sort of interfloor skirmish, or maybe there's a secret trash chute!"
Wrench: "Answer's simple." Wrench says. "Designers thought the towers needed a lot of park. Turns out it needs a hell of a lot more trash disposal."
Shuu looks at the trash piles
Shuu: "It's laziness"
Shuu: "Nobody wants to operate the recycling centers anymore"
Shuu: "Quite a few are broken down and, well… If people don't move through floors constantly, how's things going to get to them, yes?"
Shuu looks at the path ahead "Look at this tower, it's a sealed environment. It can't survive without recycling" he stops for a moment "Then again, who knows the plans of it's creators?"
Wrench picks up a busted lamp for a moment, squints at it, and tosses it back onto the pile.
Sohl: "Shuu…" He slowly walks to a stop, the brim of his hat lowered. "Are you suggesting we find the fabled blueprints of yore?"
PseudoGM: Probably just needed to seal that crack in the glass but… yeah, you don't wanna lug that around all day.
Shuu: "Ahaha, we may just have to depending on how difficult the problem wit hthe core is"
Shuu: "Or it might just be lying around in the same room, who knows"
Sohl: "Oh, so they actually exist?" He perks up.
Shuu: "I never said they did"
PseudoGM: As you wander between the piles of junk you do start to notice that there's logic to it all though - that one's mostly bulbs, that one's chunks of metal, over there are old house radios, piles of gears there… They've kept it organized, at least.
Shuu: "I sure as hell hope they do, I want to imagine the creators of the tower were at intelligent"
Yin: "There's no way they'd still be around. Wouldn't they have fallen apart by now?"
Shuu: "Depends on storage" he looks at the piles around as they move "Hrm… Someone's keeping this organized"
Harino: "I wonder if someone or something is organizing all of this?"
Shuu: "Automated, you think?"
Wrench raises a hand. Her ears are perked up. "Hold up."
Sohl stops!
Shuu halts, stares inquisitively
Yin takes a few extra steps before seeing the hand. She freezes and beings looking around, whispering "What is it?"
Wrench: "That thumping's between us and the stairs. It's a war machine - construction rig, automaton, loaded for bear for defense."
Wrench: "These alleys are pretty tight, so… don't want it roaring through a pile of junk and surprising us. Gonna get some height and take line of sight on it, maybe figure out how we're gonna engage."
Wrench clambers up some junk, sliding through a busted-open dryer to haul herself up to the top of a pile, looking to scout out, from height, where that thing is.
Yin: "You think these piles are sturdy enough…?
Wrench pauses to peer out from a rotting cabinet, poking her face out from it, claws grasping the edge tightly, tail flicking. "No."
PseudoGM: Hmm…. oh, there it is. Looks like it came to a stop in one of the more wide open areas a couple of miles out here. …. Looks like it's using a blow toarch to try and melt down one of the metal piles now?
Sohl reflexively does that readied-crouch-stance.
PseudoGM: With a bit of squinting you can barely make out a monkey sitting on top of it, and there's some kind of ordinal circling around it.
Wrench perches atop an antennae, almost-snapping it with her weight, levelling her massive gun, training it towards the distance. She takes the shot. "Incoming."
Wrench: BANG.
Sohl: "Oh boy!" He scrambles for some bit of cover!
PseudoGM: A few seconds later there's a loud crash as the scrap metal goes flying in all direction and the blow toarch shuts off. You see the monkey start bouncing around frantically, before the war machine stands fully upright, then turns and starts lumbing in your direction after letting off a klaxon.
Yin: "Did you get it?!"
Harino: "That racket sounds like she didn't get enough of it."
Wrench levels her gun for another shot, the antennae she's perched on - well, wrapped around, really - swaying with the massive kick.
Wrench: "Just wait till it gets in range."
PseudoGM: It looks like it tries to follow a path towards you for a little bit, then seems to decide against it and just starts cutting a path direction through a pile and starts closing in on your location in a hurry. You've got enough time to get into a decent formation to intercept it, and then it's ontop of you.

[OOC] PseudoGM: KO
[OOC] PseudoGM: +14 EXP]!
Wrench whistles sharply. "Takes care of that."
Shuu puts his axe on his back "That was genuinely difficult"
Sohl hunches forward, hands on knees, trying to catch a breath he's been holding in. "Haaaaaaah… they're just -unusually- supplied!"
Shuu walks over to the remains of the warmachine "I wonder if it was built just for this floor"
Shuu: "A strange place to put a park in, if that was the case"
Sohl casts a Breeze for Shuu and Harino!
Sohl rolled 1d10+12 and got 9 ( Total: 21 )
Sohl rolled 1d10+12 and got 8 ( Total: 20.0 ) for another one
Yin pats Sohl on the back. "Unusually is a way to describe it. I'd say insanely so"
Harino winces before sheathing her katana. "It's definitely a good thing we all teamed up, I'll say."
Wrench ruffles Harino's ears as she waltzes past her, tail flicking happily. She's whistling.
Shuu shakes his head "Well, nothing to do but continue, then"
Sohl digs around in the wreckage of the warmachine a bit, to see if there's anything good to salvage!
Wrench puts her hand on the back of Sohl's coat, drags him away, and - "Leave it to me."
Wrench rolls up her sleeves, pops a hatch on it, squirms inside, and soon enough there's nuts and bolts and junk flying out of it as she roots through it.
Harino huffs at the ruffling, giving an annoyed glare at Wrench's back, though her tail's wagging some in the aftermath of a good fight.
Sohl: "Whoop!" He's dragged back with little resistance.
PseudoGM: Looks like most of its insides are still perfectly fine - the armor coating saw to that. So you've got a lot of spare parts for your gun. There's still a bit of fuel from the flame thrower you could siphon out too if you got something to put it in, which you could definitely sell off in town…
PseudoGM: And an old cred stick? Looks like it's got… 245 on it, after from fiddling to get it to display properly. Which works out to [+49C] for everyone.
Wrench finally bursts out of the top in a shower of junk, packs full, grinning like a fool. She'll divvy up the credit later - probably should get it in bills - but hey, might as well mark +49C now.
Wrench rolled 2d6+10 and got 4, 5 ( Total: 19.0 )
Wrench fills an empty six-pack full of fuel. Huh, you thought she was just toting that around for nostalgia?
PseudoGM: Whatever works!
Wrench cracks her knuckles and arches her back, stretching all the way out as she continues onwards. Yup, good mood.
Yin turns towards the others while Wrench fiddles with the mech "Hopefully there's a town nearby although I can't imagine there would be on this floor with that thing stomping around"
PseudoGM: On this floor…? Doesn't look like it. With the mess Wrench and the Warmachine made though, you can see you've more or less got a straight shot at the stairs from here, and the rest of the floor sounds clear.
Sohl: "Yeah, there's one pretty close. Not -here-, but close" !
Shuu: "Good, I think we're due for some better rest and a ressuply"
Harino: "I hope so, that was really rough."
PseudoGM: The walk to the staircase probably takes a little longer than normal, given mild exhaustion from the fight, but you still make it there before too long. And this door actually opens up pretty easily - and it's the first time you've ever seen the lights in the stairwell not flicker!
Sohl: "Hey, it's workin' alright!"
Harino: "Maybe it's actually maintained if people are coming down here to sort through the junk?"
Wrench: "Sweet civilization!"
Shuu tilts his head, nods "Though maitenance has been better the higher we go"
Yin: "Maybe the machines were keeping people from coming down. Might be why the park hadn't been properly tended to."
PseudoGM: And popping open the door at the top…! Yup, that's definitely a town. The stairwell going down actually seems to be right in the middle of it - there's a phone booth pretty nearby, and you can see buildings stretching out for a few miles all around you.
Sohl: "Ha-hah! What a sensible place to build a town!"
Shuu blinks "That probably explains it, smack middle of the town"
Shuu: "Awlways unexpected, indeed, Sohl"
Harino: "I guess that's their dumping ground down there, then. Not sure about that machine, though…"
Sohl: "Disposal, burning, compacting…"
Sohl: "We may have made life worse for everyone here!"
Yin: "But maybe better for the lower floors if people can mmove more freely?"
PseudoGM: Even with just a curory glance around Sohl can spot all the important thing though - There's obviously an [Inn] here, and you can see the [Shrine] nearby the phone booth, actually. [General Store]'s over there… looks like there's even a [Magic Store] and an [Enchanters], as well!
Sohl: "Hmm… want to give Floor 1998 a call and let them know what's up?"
Shuu stares at the phone boot "Do you know someone there? Just to avoid a blind call"
Shuu: "I mean I can always call the support line but just to be polite"
Sohl: "A blind call is a conversation with a friend you don't know yet, Shuu."
Wrench flags down a Familiar to cash out the credit stick into bills. "Hey! Hey!"
Wrench fills up everybody's credit from the looted stick, making sure everyone gets [+49C.]
[OOC] Wrench: But you marked it already.
Wrench tosses it over to a Familiar once it's empty, though.
Yin: "Wait Wrench, I still owe you, you and Sohl both, for all the food!"
Harino makes sure to transfer 5C back to Wrench before unhooking, to cover the tuna rations from the first town.
PseudoGM: "Huhwha - ?!" It bounces it a few times before finally catching it and giving Wrench a Look.
Shuu crosses his arms looking around "How about we check on the prices of that Inn and proceed to groceries? I think we all would like to have better supplies for the next stretch"
Sohl: "Hey, if you find somethin' that'll give you an extra punch, spend it on that and we'll call it even!"
Sohl: "And don't forget to buy some rations!"
Wrench cleans out her ear, bashfully looking away as Harino transfers it back. "Sheesh, you're really gonna settle up for that? Sure."
Sohl: "…however I -could- use that 4 credits so, sure!"
Yin makes sure to also give 5 to Wrench and 10 to Sohl for all the food, leaving herself enough to stock up with now.
PseudoGM: Looks like the Inn's going for the standard rate - [20C for a Full Rest].
Wrench heads off to the general store and unloads her salvage. "Torchfuel. And one let me tell you fine battery, right here…" [+19C] [+19C]
PseudoGM: "Oh nice, we were just starting to run low on that. You got yourself a deal!"
Wrench: "Sounds good. We're heading up, so we'll be pickin' up rations. You stock any local maps?"
PseudoGM: "Hrrm. Up, you said? Yeah, we got maps. The one right above us is actually kind of a huge maze with a lot of little critter's runnin' around it. Some over ambitious Maxwellian a couple years back spent a few weeks meticulously maping the place out though. Still got a few copies of it left, if you're interested in buying on."
Shuu looks over Wrench's shoulder "That would be good, how much for it?"
Wrench snorts. "Got me by the balls on that one, wouldn't wanna be wandering around blind."
PseudoGM: "Used to sell 'em at a premium, but the chief got kinda cheesed at that so they're goin' for the standard rate for detailed floor plans - 40C."
Shuu looks at Wrench "Split?"
Wrench: "Deal." She puts in 20C for it.
Yin makes a point to buy some of her own rations: -5 credits/ +5 rations
Shuu covers the other 20C
Sohl heads around to purchase some rations, make various small, easy-to-carry ingredients for future camping… also books a room at the Inn.
Harino will definitely be asking around the town about any troublesome monsters that should be hunted down in the floors above, while doing her own shopping.
Harino and checking out the contracts on the board by the phone booth.
PseudoGM: The Driftin manner the phone booth waves excitedly at Harino when he noticed her looking over the contract board. "Hey, hey! I don't recognize you! That means you're a traveller, right? And a trained one, judging from the swords?"
Wrench buys a fancy looking Toolkit [50C] and a whole pile of rations. [10 for 10C.]
Harino: "Yes, that's right. Just came from the floors below, heading upwards tomorrow most likely."
PseudoGM: "Oh man, perfect! And you're looking for a contract, right?"
Shuu also acquires a set of Rations x5 [5C], he is ALSO going to acquire a Slayer's Charm [10C]… After the Full Rest, please
Harino nods her head, both ears standing at full attention. "Again, correct."
Yin goes to the shrine to make an offering and buys some incense while there, but not before following Sohl's lead and booking a room at the Inn. -25 credits, but Rat's charm is reactivated
PseudoGM: "Thank god! Okay so there's this trader from 2038 here, right? I guess he was bringing a caravan down this way, and they *almost* made it through the maze upstairs just fine, but near the stairwell they got ambushed by the Hobgoblin. And I guess it stole this like, super fancy pants heriloom watch from him? And he's been being a HUGE pain in the ass trying to get us to send anyone available up there to get it back for him. But uh… not really anyone around at the moment suited for that kinda work."
Wrench gets her booking. And out back in the alley, she does the traditional offering to her Slayer's charm: A little bottle of cheap whiskey, a little bottle of cheap medicine, poured together, mingled in the dirt. [-20G and -3G.]
PseudoGM: "So at this point he's up to offering a whole flippin' 60C for the safe return of the watch. You've save my ears a LOT of pain if you'd pick up that contract…!"
Shuu safely stores the charm somewhere safe as he goes over to book a room, he watches Wrench go off for the offering "(Always a hassle)"
Harino nods. "Sounds good to me; knowing our luck we'd run into in anyway."
PseudoGM: "Wooo! You're a life saver."
PseudoGM: He quickly goes through the motions of filling out the contract, then hands it over to Harino. "You can hand it over to whoever once you find it too, in case you don't wind up coming back this way. Guy already said he'd pay for any shipping costs."
Shuu will actually take the chance to find somewhere selling some gas, he goes to whoever supplies kitchens with some and wrangles getting a little bit to recharge the flamer on his axe [2C]. On the process he walks by the phone booth, watching Harino discussing something with another driftin
Harino: "All right, that takes care of my only worry."
Shuu waits until Harino seems done, goes over to her "That looked serious"
Harino blinks, looking over at Shuu. "Oh, I forgot to mention I regularly take some monster-hunting contracts for extra money; looks like someone lost an important watch to this Hobgoblin on the next floor, and since we're going there anyway…"
Shuu: "Aha, I see"
Shuu: "It's a good job, people need that"
Shuu: "I'll keep an eye should we run into it"
Harino: "Yeah, and the client'll even pay for shipping it down, so no need to go return it before actually heading upwards."
Shuu: "Nice"
Harino will also pick up some rations [-5C], grab an inn room [-20C], and make some prayers to the shrine in the morning. [-3C]
PseudoGM: On the whole, it's a pretty nice little town, and people are friendly. Most of the vendors will talk at you for a while if you let them - they're always excited to see new faces - and you can get anything else you might need without too much hassle. The meal serverd at the Inn is pretty nice too, when was the last time your beef stew had real beef in it? And the beds are fluffy and comfortable. It's nice to get a proper nights rest, after all that exploring!
Shuu likes a fluffy bed! Even if his body is pretty hard. "This is quite a nice town"
Sohl eats his fill of beef stew, and plays a bit of info-exchanging with the innkeepers and other guests. Such as, 'what was with the floor below,' or 'anyone else been through lately,' or 'what's the local headache like?'
Harino is very pleased with some real meat, yes!
PseudoGM: People go down there all the time, it sounds like. Most of the stuff down there is still in various states of usable, so it's not like they can just throw stuff out, right? But when things get replaced by newer stuff, it's not like there's much room for the old junk, so the floor below's been used as a big storage shed, more or less. People'll go down there to find spare parts if there's any need for them.
Sohl: "Hm hm, hm hm!"
Sohl: "Well… some of those spares are well beyond melted and gone, now!" He then tells the story of the machine and the monkeys.
Yin: Before settling in for the night Yin wanders around the town on her own for a for a while, chatting with everyone who's willing and making notes in her book. Eventually she makes her way back towards the phones booths, stepping up to the Driftin operator and asking to make a call.
PseudoGM: Sohl's story get a LOT of wide eyes and shocked looks, before a few rounds of applause.
PseudoGM: From the sound of things, people knew there HAD been a warmachine down there, but were all pretty sure it was missing more than a few parts to be functional. People start throwing around a few theories, before settling on one stating that the sentry probably went haywire and started devoting itself to patching up the warmachine because… well… uh. Who knows why ordinal ever do anything they do.
PseudoGM: The monkies are a common pain in the ass though, and you gets some laughs and back pats for beating them up and scaring them off.
Sohl: "Well, they -did- fix it…"
PseudoGM: The Driftin's a lot less excitable with Yin, now that his biggest problem is delt with… probably. Still friendly enough though and makes some light conversation while getting the line set up, then shows you to the room with your call on it.
Yin: After her call she heads to the inn to join everyone else for the night
