Toe 09

[F2005] Morning comes at the same time as it always does, but this time accomponied by the distinct scent of the apples trees which you had made your camp next too.
Yin gets up earlier than normal, as the lights switch to morning, and is familiarizing herself with the rifle that Wrench had passed to her the previous night.
Yin: "Morning"
Wrench makes nondescript grumbling noises. She ain't getting up just yet.
Shuu is just sitting, staring at the nearby apple tree
Sohl wakes up last, and pats a tiny corner of iron ration into some leftover applesauce. When it goes in his mouth, he perks up in an instant.
Harino finishes up her morning exercises, hopping up and grabbing an apple to snack on as she gets ready to leave.
Shuu stands up slowly, as always "Good morning"
Shuu: "Sounds like we're all as good as always, short of Wrench"
Yin nods and repacks everything away before standing "Ready and waiting for the marching orders of the day!"
Wrench snorts and shakes her tail and lifts herself up. "Yeah, yeah, ain't we all chipper." She rolls her shoulder.
Sohl: "Been a fightin' heavy trip- it'll wear on anyone."
Shuu chuckles "Everyone gets tired at some point"
Sohl rolls to his feet and works to triple-extinguish the fire.
Shuu: "I just didn't expect Wrench to"
Shuu: "Either way, I think we're about ready to move on. Hopefully the stairs here aren't too far"
Sohl: "The entire goblin compound was a bit of an ordeal, even with the sanctuary in the middle."
Shuu: "That's an understatement"
Sohl: "But! It'll be clear lights from here on out! I have a good feeling!"
Sohl hefts his pack onto his shoulders.
Yin: "See anything ahead whilst you were downing the deer Wrench?"
PseudoGM: The way forward is pretty clear, at least. It's hard to get *too* lost if you can get above the trees for a better vantage point of the floor and find the next stairwell. Shouldn't be more than a few hours to reach it from here.
PseudoGM: As you make your way through the forest there's signs of other hunters patrolling this area pretty frequently, and every once in a while you can hear gunshots in the distance ringing out.
Sohl: "I'm takin' that as a good sign that a settlement can't be too far away."
Shuu: "They're keeping the area safe, as well"
Yin: "Hope so! I wish we had some brighter colors on through these trees though"
Sohl: "Mm-hmm. Until then, just try not to… I don't know, walk on all hands and feet?"
Wrench sniffs the air. "No promises."
Shuu chuckles at Wrench
Shuu: "You'd do that on purpose i'm sure"
PseudoGM: And an hour or two later there's a rustling noise from some nearby bushes, and three vaguely dog-shapes lightning bolts jump out and land in front of the party. They pause for a moment to size the group up, the let out a howl. A momentum later two robots covered in camoflauge paint emerge, hunting rifles in hand, which are trained on the group in short order,
Sohl sighs. "Okay, so now I'm hoping they have a place they go for maintenance…?"
PseudoGM: One of the robots lets out a whistle, and the thundogs begin to close in!
Shuu: "… Hello?"
[OOC] PseudoGM: Round One] Shuu's up first unless Harino is up first.

Sohl: "Whe-w! Yeah, yer' right, this journey's gettin' long in the tooth." He slumps a bit, barely holding onto his axe.
Shuu kneels down and looks at the robots, are they the sort of robot that's kind of turned feral here in the tower or did they just have REALLY BAD hunting orders?
Yin: "Same," Yin says with a wheeze and she leans over to put her hands on her knees and just breathe
[OOC] Shuu: I mean I don't expect to be abl to just read that bu 'are those like old robots that you meet in the tower or something a settlement might be using for automated hunting'
Harino lets out a long breath as she sheathes her katana, nodding. "I hope so, too."
PseudoGM: After performing some diagnostics it looks like their IFF got flipped at some point, Shuu, causing them to hunt people instead of monsters.
[OOC] Yin: So many credits!
Shuu: "Hrm… Either those things ran into some really nasty problems, or into some really nasty people"
Sohl: "The latter tend to make the former, or is it the other way around?" He shrugs. "They smashed enough?"
Yin comments with a bit of a laugh, "Why not both?"
Shuu: "Either way they seem like patrol bots from the original construction, so don't think anyone figured out how to make more of them for hunting"
Shuu: "Which is a shame" he stands up slowly "They're pretty smashed"
Sohl: "Heh. I'm just glad they're not gonna pop back up or whatever."
Wrench rips them to pieces, taking a few choice pieces of scrap for her gun.
Sohl sheathes his axe and takes a few deep breaths, working himself up to a full stad.
[OOC] Sohl: *stand

Sohl: "Yep. Let's mosey."
PseudoGM: It doesn't take too much time from here to get to the stairwell, which opens up with surprising ease (well, compared to most others anyway).

Harino: "Oh, good…"
Yin: "Thank all the gods that are listening!"
Sohl: "Aw yeah- a sight for sore feet!"
Shuu: "Oh yeah, exactly what I needed. Could really use some engine maint right now"
Shuu starts heading towards the buildings "C'mon"
Yin: "Don't have to tell me twice" Yin says as she hurries to keep the pace.
[Inn] [Shrine] [General Store] [Enchanters] available, from the looks of things. It's not a large town, but it's still stocked well enough for you to get most any supplies you need. And most importantly a good place to spend the night.
PseudoGM: Shuu gets a lot of strange looks as whispers as the party wanders on in, but otherwise nothing seems to out of the ordinary.

Yin sells her Barrier ring and Rat's charm back to the store (+20g) which will pay for her night at the inn (-20g)
PseudoGM: Scanning through the other available postings there's not much that's of any interest. Lots of smaller things in down, but nothing particulrly suited to your skillset. There's a small one for 5G to check up on the power relay station on the floor above this one and make sure a Ryo hasn't messed with it…. and then another bigger one to track down a War Tortiose somewhere between here and the next settlement up for 80G.
Wrench discards the map of the goblin lair. Probably handing it off at the general store - "Hey, hand this off to anybody that's going back down there…"
Harino smiles, her tail wagging as she receives the reward and looking through the postings, noting that Shuu and Wrench would be good at checking over the power relay, and double-checking if they have an approximate look or floor for the War Tortoise.
PseudoGM: "Hmm… yeah that's still worth buyin' since it's on the way to the next settlement." The clerk nods to Wrench
PseudoGM: Ryu rather, not Ryo. Not that the name means anything to you anyway.
Sohl sides up to Yin as she sells and haggles with the merchant, pushing up the price of her used goods. [You get 90% of its value back instead of 50%] [
Yin hugs Sohl!
PseudoGM: The War Tortiose was last seen on F2007, but looking over a few notes under the posting it seems like it's been movig between floors? Which is weird because it's definitely too big for the stairwell, but that's part of why it's got a bounty on it now.
Yin: (so that +20g was actually +36g!)
[OOC] Sohl: yup!
Harino frowns, that one's definitely worth persuing. She pulls out a notebook and jots both of them down, nodding to herself before going about shopping in town.
[OOC] Yin: cool, so even after paying for the inn it will still be 104 for me to spend now :)
Wrench squints at Sohl and drags him over to talk about Suitable Remuneration For the Map. Getting 54G back for it. Nice.
Wrench: Oh Wait, 36, I Misread.
Sohl does make a few purchases at the store, almost purposefully loitering so that his friends can find him in his natural habitat. Like Wrench just did! (And like how Harino might…?)
Wrench pays for inn and offerings to the Slayer, natch. [-21C]
[OOC] PseudoGM: -23] actually but close!
Yin picks up a set of Mystic's beads (-30g) and a shiny, new Majesty's charm (-20g) to replace the ones she sold
Yin also grabs a Drought from the vendor before heading to the inn to rejoin the party and meditate on some things for the night
Harino considers how often she's getting hit here, and ends up trading in the protective padding she had with Sohl's help, for some proper, full armour and a decent shield, before heading to the inn. [-61 altogether]
PseudoGM: …In any cases, it's a nice little town. Feel free to stock up on anything you might need before setting out tomorrow!
