01:57 <Cherry> Jill saunters into the briefing room and looks around.
01:58 <DSJ> There's a guy in there, wearing a sweater-vest with a labcoat over it. His face is pretty forgettable. On the room's table, there's some files
01:58 <Kade> Sue heads to the briefing room!
01:58 <Glorpman> Lou heads into the briefing room and looks visibly nervous.
01:59 <Glorpman> "Oh, you two are coming aswell?"
01:59 <Cherry> Jill sits down, her eyes gliding over the files. She looks behind her to see two familiar faces enter. "Oh… Lou, Sue. Hi."
02:00 <DSJ> Sue, this guy is….. kinda familiar
02:00 <DSJ> PERC
02:01 <Kade> "Mmmhmm! You happy to be on your first mission, Lou? Hey, Miss Jill." Sue turns to look at the gue doing the debrief s he grabs a file.
02:01 <Kade> 4df+4 he subtly wrack's his bring for where he knows the guy from.
02:01 <Glacon> Kade: he subtly wrack's his bring for where he knows the guy from.: 5 (4df+4=4-, 3+, 0, 3+)
02:01 <Cherry> Jill lets out a loud cough at Sue's greeting.
02:01 <DSJ> Hey, isn't that the time traveler guy?
02:02 <Glorpman> "Yeah Sue, hope I do well."
02:03 <Kade> "Oh, sorry, sorry!" He laughs at himself. "I meant Jill." Sue turns to look at Tyler in amusement. "Hello, TIME. Didn't you say you weren't coming here?" He looks over the file he pulled from the table.
02:03 -!- gumbal1 [retal.xobdnas.ym.raelc.lliw.1l|bmug#retal.xobdnas.ym.raelc.lliw.1l|bmug] has left blocked. blocked. blocked. [#homeimprovement]
02:04 <DSJ> "…you can call me Tyler, y'know. And no, I said I wouldn't be brought here and contained. I got a job here, it's entirely different."
02:04 <Cherry> Jill's dressed similarly to the forgettableish man. She's wearing a doctor's coat she """stole""" from medical, a dark purple, turtleneck sweater that is only a few shades lighter than the colour her hair is dyed. Her other body parts are obscured by the table, but black is a safe guess. "Hi, Lou." she answers, looking at the interaction between Sue and strange guy.
02:05 <DSJ> "Look, there's pictures of the thing you're looking for in your file, and the places you'll need to visit."
02:06 <Kade> He raises an eyebrow, amused. "Oh, I know, but your initials /are/ rather hilarious. You didn't tell us you had a job here, though."
02:06 <DSJ> In the file is a pair of dice, one looks fairly normal, the other is oddly decorated. On each side is an illustration of a body part, an eye, a foot, an arm, a brain, a body, and a person.
02:07 <Glorpman> "It's nice to meet you Tyler, the names Lou." Lou extends his hand to the man.
02:07 <Kade> Sue looks over the thing and the places. "What do these do, out of curiosity? Also, I will call you typle it you relly want me to."
02:08 <Cherry> Jill silently stares at the dice in the file. She lets Sue do all the talking- he seems to be really good at this.
02:08 <DSJ> Tyler reluctantly shakes his hand, "Well, I didn't want to blow my cover, you know."
02:08 <DSJ> "The dice multiply your physical characteristics on some kinda metric, we're not sure which."
02:09 <Glorpman> "What cover?" Lou asks.
02:09 <Kade> "Don't worry about it, Lou. He'sjust someone we met on a mission, is all."
02:10 <Glorpman> "Oh, alright."
02:10 <Kade> "I asked him if he wanted to join us on site, and he declined, so it's a surprise to see him again."
02:10 -!- SpookyBee is now known as SnoozleBee
02:10 <DSJ> "Anyways, there's a car waiting and all that shit, because this era still doesn't have teleporters. God, I miss teleporters."
02:11 <Glorpman> "Teleporters? I didn't know the foundation was that advanced."
02:11 <Cherry> Jill raises an eyebrow. Teleporters… sure. This guy from the future or something? Jill thinks about it, making all kinds of mental snide remarks until she remembers who she's working for.
02:12 <DSJ> "By the way, I probably should warn you all, but there's someone else after these dice, and they'll probably horribly mutilate you to get them, and then keep it up after. If you see some asshole with a duster, weird eyes, and a pool cue, I'd suggest trying to keep away from him."
02:13 <DSJ> "Anyways, that's all I can really tell you, location's in the files, you really should get going."
02:13 <DSJ> The location in question is a town in Louisiana
02:14 <Glorpman> "How are we travelling? Plane, boat or what?"
02:14 <Cherry> "…Uh… huh." Jill frowns at the odd description and stands up. "Right… should we go?" she turns to Sue and Lou.
02:15 <DSJ> "Plane, duh. It'd take… boats are still really slow, right? So it'd take a week or something to go via boat."
02:15 <Kade> Sue grinws and nods. "Your rather terrible with your own cover, I think." His eyes crinkle in laughter. "We'll try our best on the not-dying part, but no promises. Especially if this guy happens to be CHAOS." Sue gets up. "Alright, let's do this, then." Sue gets some of his enginerring project then gets going!
02:16 <Glorpman> "Sure Jill, I'm ready when you are."
02:16 <DSJ> "Yeah, the guy in question is Chris. Which is why I warned you, because he's kinda ruined my life in a lot of ways and he's probably gonna do the same to you guys." With that, timeskip to arriving in town?
02:17 <Cherry> Timeskip. How topical. No objections.
02:17 <Glorpman> (What? We can't rp this real time?)
02:18 <DSJ> (I mean cutting out the trip there, which is pretty tedious to rp out and inconsequential)
02:18 <Cherry> (Jesus do you want to wait like, eight hours?)
02:18 <Glorpman> (Tons of xp :P )
02:19 <Glorpman> (But I'm joking, how long was the timeskip?)
02:20 <DSJ> (Couple of hours. Kade?)
02:20 <Kade> (I'm here!)
02:20 <Kade> (And timeskip works!)
02:21 <Cherry> (Kade is a dork. Just sayin')
02:21 <Glorpman> (It works for me aswell)
02:21 <DSJ> Alright! After a long flight and drive, you arrive in a pretty dismal town, foggy and dark given the time of day. The building loom in the distance, despite being two stories tall. You were given a few addresses, one for a bar and one for a pawnshop.
02:21 <Cherry> (As well are two words Glorp :P I keep thinking you have weird skin conditions when you say 'aswell')
02:23 <Kade> "Hmm. You wanna go to the bar or pawnshop first? Be warned- there will probably be a lot of weird things done with space.
02:23 <Kade> "
02:23 <Glorpman> "Wow, that took longer than I thought it would… So, this is America?"
02:23 <Glorpman> "I'd say the pawnshop Sue."
02:24 <Kade> He looks over to the pictures of the dice, then smiles and nods. "Alright, sounds good."
02:24 <Cherry> "…I doubt this town is representative of the entire continent, Lou." Jill answers, semi-snidely. Her sigh is followed by an expression of her lack of opinion: "Whatever is fine." she follows Sue and Lou around quietly.
02:26 <Kade> Sue goes to walk with Jill and smiles at her. "This your first mission, too?"
02:27 <Glorpman> Lou follows close behind them.
02:27 <DSJ> The pawnshop, as they approach it, has definitely seen better days. The paint is peeling, and there's a board patching up one of the windows. A sign hangs down. 'MORRISON PAWN.'
02:28 <Cherry> She nods, slowly. "Yeah. It is. I… hope this'll get my mind off of the entire… Sam ordeal." she sighs. "And well, I can't spend my entire term at site-77 crying in my room and handing aspirin to agents. So I better make myself useful." she sighs, looking at the shop in front of them.
02:28 <Glorpman> "Do we have any information on this place?"
02:28 <Kade> Do they, or is it just a pawn shop according to what they have?
02:29 <DSJ> Just a pawn shop that might have the item
02:30 <Cherry> Jill stands aside, letting Sue or Lou lead.
02:30 <Kade> "Nope. Just a pawn shop, far as we know." With that, Sue opens the door to the pawn shop and goes in!"
02:30 <Kade> -"
02:31 <Cherry> Jill follows Sue closely behind and looks around.
02:31 <DSJ> The man at the counter is balding, but not bald. He looks at you with a steely gaze, like he's trying to figure out what you want.
02:32 <Cherry> Jill looks around, quietly, avoiding eye contact with the man. Are there any objects of note displayed?
02:32 <Cherry> s/displayed/on display/
02:32 <DSJ> PERC
02:32 <Glorpman> Lou follows behind them casually.
02:32 <Glorpman> (All of us?)
02:32 <Kade> Sue looks around! Any signs of screwing with reality and/or the dice? Sue smiles and waves at him. "Hello, sir. We're just browsing for now."
02:32 <Cherry> 4df+4+2
02:32 <Glacon> Cherry: 6 (4df+4+2=0, 3+, 0, 4-)
02:33 <DSJ> "Browsing fer what, exactly?"
02:33 <DSJ> There's a pair of dice, but they're too covered up to tell if it's the pair. The color matches, though.
02:33 <Kade> 4df+4
02:33 <Glacon> Kade: 4 (4df+4=0, 0, 4-, 3+)
02:34 <Glorpman> Lou walks up to the balding man and extends his hand, "Hi, it's nice to meet you, my names Lou, what's your name?"
02:34 <Kade> Pawn shops are the places where everything is behind dice, right?
02:34 <Glorpman> (DSJ, is it all of us?)
02:34 <Cherry> "Looking for a pair of dice." she says, looking down at the pair in front of them. "Like, these ones for example." Jill points to the colour-matching pair, her head turned to the man.
02:34 <DSJ> "Buddy, I ain't shaking your hand." (no, unless you want to roll PERC)
02:34 <Cherry> (Everything's behind glass usually, Kade)
02:34 <Kade> (k thanks)
02:35 <DSJ> "Well, like these or these? Cus these are kinda the only ones we got that're like that."
02:35 <Glorpman> Lou takes a step back, "Oh, uhh, sorry."
02:36 <Glorpman> 4df+2 Lou put's on his glasses to try and get a look.
02:36 <Glacon> Glorpman: Lou put's on his glasses to try and get a look.: 4 (4df+2=3+, 0, 0, 3+)
02:36 <Kade> "Can we get a closer look at them, out of curiosity?"

02:36 <Glacon> Glorpman: perc: 3 (4df+2=3+, 0, 0, 0)

02:37 <DSJ> "…sure. What're y'all doin' in town, anyways? Two've you sound Irish."
02:38 <Cherry> 4df+5 BLUFF On vacation!
02:38 <Glacon> Cherry: BLUFF On vacation!: 2 (4df+5=4-, 4-, 0, 4-)
02:38 <Cherry> Fucking hell Jill
02:38 <DSJ> He brings out the dice, and well… they match! "These'll be… hm, lemme think. A hundred fifty sounds fair, don't it?"
02:39 <DSJ> "Vacation? Sure, sure. Could y'all have the decency to just tell me you ain't gonna tell me instead of lyin'?"
02:39 <Cherry> Jill cocks her head. "One hundred and fifty?" she feigns surprise. "Are these… special or something?" she asks, frowning.
02:39 <Kade> 4df+4+5 (BLUFF plus DIR. MISINFo.) Sue also keeps an eye out for the man. "Oh, they're friends of mine- I came down to visit relatives and asked them if they wanted to come with."
02:39 <Glacon> Kade: (BLUFF plus DIR. MISINFo.) Sue also keeps an eye out for the man. "Oh, they're friends of mine- I came down to visit relatives and asked them if they wanted to come with.": 9 (4df+4+5=0, 3+, 0, 4-)
02:39 <Glorpman> Can I roll persuasion?
02:39 <Kade> "Sorry, my friend just gets shy.
02:40 <DSJ> "Fella that gave 'em over said they was, and that was probably about….eh, fiv're so years ago. So they'd still be special."
02:40 <DSJ> "Vistin'? Well, pal, I'd suggest tellin' yer friends how things work down here."
02:41 <Glorpman> (Can I roll persuasion?)
02:41 <DSJ> (sure.)
02:42 <Glorpman> 4df+4 "150 for a pair of dice is ridiculous! How 'bout a more reasonable 20?"
02:42 <Glacon> Glorpman: "150 for a pair of dice is ridiculous! How 'bout a more reasonable 20?": 3 (4df+4=0, 0, 0, 4-)
02:42 <DSJ> "Twenty? Now that's just…insultin'. 170."
02:43 <Kade> Sue puts a hand on Lou's shoulder. "Hey, it's aright, I can pay." He smiles apologetically at the man. "Heh, sorry about that. They get a bit awkward around strangers, it all. And sounds fair. Give me a second to find where I tucked my wallet…" He starts opening his jacket, as if looking for something…
02:43 <Glorpman> (Now can I roll intimidation?)
02:43 <DSJ> (I mean sure but cops were still a thing in the 50s
02:43 <DSJ> *)
02:43 <Kade> 4df+9 (ACAD+vis misdirec)
02:43 <Glacon> Kade: (ACAD+vis misdirec): 8 (4df+9=3+, 0, 4-, 4-)
02:44 <DSJ> What's Sue trying to do?
02:44 <Kade> He's really using slight of hand and some quick paints to make some believable billz yo
02:44 <Kade> :V
02:45 <Kade> BLUFF for sleight of hand?
02:45 <DSJ> Yeah uh, I don't disagree that you can roll to do something, but not that
02:45 <DSJ> That's cartoon levels of silly.
02:45 <Kade> Aww, okay!
02:45 <Cherry> Forging bills is difficult ;;
02:46 <Glorpman> Can Lou just intimidate the man into giving them a fair price?
02:46 <Glorpman> Or try too?
02:46 <DSJ> He can try, sure
02:46 <Glorpman> How tall is the man?
02:47 <DSJ> Regular height, 5'6" ish
02:48 <Cherry> Jill watches the spectacle. She frowns at the piece of paper in Sue's hand. Jill is about ninety percent sure Ben Franklin didn't have two mouths.
02:49 <Glorpman> Lou looks at Sue, then Jill. He's obviously planning something.
02:50 <Cherry> DSJ- did the man put the dice on the counter or somewhere viewable?
02:50 <DSJ> They're on the counter, albeit close to him
02:50 <Cherry> You said the colour matches- now that Jill can clearly see them, do they match the photo accurately?
02:51 <DSJ> As said earlier, yes.
02:52 <Glorpman> 4df+6 Intimidation "Buddy, can you give us a fair price?"
02:52 <Glacon> Glorpman: Intimidation "Buddy, can you give us a fair price?": 3 (4df+6=4-, 4-, 0, 4-)
02:52 <Glorpman> (Oh no)
02:52 <Cherry> "Can you… roll them for me?" Jill asks, giving the man a fake smile. "I've heard some dice are rigged, I just… want to see if they roll alright."
02:53 <DSJ> "….are you tryin' to threatin' a man inside his own store? Alright, that's it. 200, or y'all best be leavin' my store."
02:53 <Kade> 4df+9 (BLUFF) "Shit, did I leave my wallet at home?" He places an hand ont he counter, pulling this out of his jacket to look for it. If he hapens to pugrab thre dice whle doing so, it's not very noticeable.
02:53 <Glacon> Kade: (BLUFF) "Shit, did I leave my wallet at home?" He places an hand ont he counter, pulling this out of his jacket to look for it. If he hapens to pugrab thre dice whle doing so, it's not very noticeable.: 8 (4df+9=0, 0, 0, 4-)
02:53 <Kade> *to grab the dice
02:53 <DSJ> SNEAK for that
02:54 <Kade> redact then
02:54 <Cherry> "Good fucking Job, Lou…" she mutters silently.
02:55 <DSJ> (Alright, give me a second to switch to my phone- alternatively, if I'm not back soon, we'll continue tomorrow. Apologies if so.)
02:56 <Glorpman> (Well, Lou will pay you guys back at home.)

02:58 <Kade> Sue sighs in 'relief'. "/Finally/." He pulls out his wallet and actually pulls out the money left over from what Kit gave him. "There we go!"
02:59 <DSJ> "..this'll do." This is actually enough money, right?
02:59 <Glorpman> "Sorry sir." Lou heads to the back of the room.
02:59 <Kade> Yep!
03:00 <Glorpman> Lou spent all his extra spending money on a wedding gift for Kit and Arty.
03:00 <Cherry> Jill is broke as hell
03:00 <Kade> Sue smiles at the man "Thank you, sir. Sorry about them." He takes the dice and nods at the man!
03:01 <DSJ> "Whatever, just get yerselves outta the store."
03:02 <Kade> laughs and grins at the man. "Will do!" With that, he goes to leave.
03:02 <Cherry> Jill follows Sue out. Any alleyways or side passages they can go to?
03:02 <Glorpman> Lou grabs an extra 5 bucks and gives it to the pawn store guy. (Wait, is that Rick from pawn stars?)
03:03 <DSJ> There's a few, but… perc, everyone
03:03 <DSJ> (nope)
03:03 <Glorpman> Lou heads outside with them.

03:05 <Cherry> Jill's face slowly turns white. "Fuck fuck fuck." she starts shivering visibly at the sigh of the man.
03:05 <Glorpman> Lou nudges Sue and Jill and starts walking casually away.
03:06 <Glorpman> "Cmon guys, look natural." Lou whispers to them.
03:07 <DSJ> "Well now, look at y'all. I'd expected them to send some tougher folks, but maybe they're tryin' out a natural selection thing." The man's voice is smooth and sharp, his accent fitting for the state.

03:09 <DSJ> (oh good)
03:09 <Cherry> Jill sighs, obviously walking away and looking casual isn't going to do jack. She turns over to the man, her face pale. "…H-Hello." she stammers, weakly.
03:09 <DSJ> "I'm talkin' to y'all, after all you just bought them dice, didn't ya?"
03:09 <Kade> 4df+9 (Bluff) Sue looks confused and a little scared. "Excuse me sir, what're you talkin' 'bout? I'm just visitin' my relatives here, is all. A-are they involved with gangsters, or something?"

03:25 <Kade> Sue smiles, shakes his head a little… and takes the pice out of his pocket to roll them into his other hand. If he dies from it, hey, at least it's a distraction!
03:26 <DSJ> Assuming no one takes any sort of action, Christopher (the guy in the duster), exits the store, dragging the owner by the arm across the ground. He walks over to the group again, a slight grin on his face. Two d6, Sue.

03:27 <Glorpman> (Could he keep re-rolling it?)
03:28 <Kade> No time to roll again, I'm guessing?
03:28 <DSJ> He would have had to drop them to actually roll them, so yes
03:29 <DSJ> "Well, well, well. That's where they are, and to think I was gonna torture this man until y'all told me where they really was. Instead, I guess he can die quick."
03:29 <Cherry> (Can Jill roll AGI to veeeery quickly pick them up and drop 'em again?)
03:29 <DSJ> (She'd get shot at, but sure)
03:30 <Cherry> (Nevermind :L)
03:30 <DSJ> Christopher levels the pool cue at the man's head, and with one hit, as if it were a cue ball, the cue goes through the man's head, killing him.
03:32 <Glorpman> Does it make a sound?
03:32 <Cherry> Jill eyes open wide, she swallows, standing silently. For one moment she thought she'd drop down and re-roll the dice. But… she'd probably not survive. Let alone the fact she's not sure if these're the real deal.

03:33 <Glacon> Kade: "Really? They didn't do anything. Seems like they were fakes all along, huh?": 8 (4df+9=0, 0, 0, 4-)
03:33 <DSJ> "So," he says, pushing the man off of the cue, "I'm willin to forgive y'all, if y'all are willin' to apologize to me."
03:33 <DSJ> "Fake? Well, if they're fake, you wouldn't mind handin' em over, right?"
03:34 <Cherry> "Apologise…?" Jill asks, nervously.
03:35 <Glorpman> Lou's obviously shaken up, he stares at Sue on what to do.
03:35 <DSJ> "A
03:36 <Cherry> (B)
03:37 <DSJ> *"Anyways, I'll explain what I mean. See, these days, in most dimensions, they're ain't a whole lot of sincerity goin' around. So, naturally I ain't gonna let you off for sayin' sorry, cause you're sure as hell not gonna feel it. Instead, y'all are gonna have to do something you'll feel sorry as hell for, and we'll call it even."
03:38 <Kade> "What is it?
03:38 <Kade> "
03:38 <Cherry> Jill shivers and frowns. She's about to open her mouth when Sue asks her question for them.
03:39 <DSJ> "It depends, considerin' y'all are all different kinds of people. But first, hand me them dice so I can make sure they ain't fake."
03:39 <Glorpman> Lou gulps, he's scarred of what he might have to do.
03:40 <Cherry> (Oh man Lou. Suffering emotional trauma before the trauma begins)
03:40 <Kade> Sue smiles and bends down to get him the dice, holding them out like he's offering them up.
03:40 <DSJ> "I said hand 'em to me, not stand around like a retard."
03:42 <Cherry> Jill motions at Sue with her head to hand them over.
03:42 <Kade> Sue laughs and hands them over. "You got me."
03:42 <Glorpman> Lou just frozen in fear.
03:43 <DSJ> He rolls them.
03:43 <DSJ> d6
03:43 <Glacon> DSJ: 5 (d6=5)

03:43 <DSJ> That's the result they show, but then.
03:44 <DSJ> Somehow, they both come up as a 6, or to better put it, a 6 multiplier to all attributes.
03:44 <DSJ> Christopher laughs, "Right, y'all were full of shit."
03:45 <DSJ> "Then again, given who yer workin' for, that's par for fuckin' course, ain't it?"
03:45 <Cherry> Jill remains silent, staring at the dice on the floor. Her breathing is heavy.
03:46 <Glorpman> Lou holds up his hands, he obviously does not want to incur the wrath of the men.
03:46 <Kade> Sue smiles at the man.
03:48 <DSJ> "Anyways, given you were the man who lied to me, you get to go first. Before that, we'll be headin' in to that bar, though." He gestures to it with his bloody cue, "Can't really do what I'm plannin' outside."
03:49 <Cherry> Jill nods, slowly movines one of her feet forward. Reluctantly, she looks over her shoulder at Sue and Lou.
03:50 <Kade> Sue follows, acting like he isn't even bothered.
03:51 <DSJ> The guns remained trained on you all, as the group follows you inside. The bar is relatively, aside from the bartender. Christopher waves his pool cue at him, and the man is flung against the wall and left unconscious.
03:51 <Cherry> (Relatively what?)
03:51 <Cherry> (Relatively empty?)
03:51 <Glorpman> Lou follows reluctantly.
03:51 <Kade> "What'll we be playing, then?"
03:52 <DSJ> (empty, yeah.)
03:53 <Cherry> Jill stands, still quiet as ever. She anxiously awaits the for the announcement of the man's plans.
03:53 <DSJ> "Playin'? We ain't playin' shit. You got your art stuff with ya, Sue?"
03:54 <Kade> "I was just figuring, since it was a bar and all." Sue takes out his art stuff. "Right here."
03:54 <Cherry> Jill frowns. "How… do you know?" she asks, quietly.
03:54 <DSJ> "We're only gonna need the brushes, and this tablecloth oughta do."
03:55 <Cherry> "How do you know?" Jill asks, a little louder this time around.
03:55 <DSJ> "Well gee, it's almost like I had a spy watch y'all for a bit, ain't it, Jill?" He grins, and gestures to a closet in the bar.
03:56 <DSJ> "She's in there, if you're curious. We ain't takin' her out yet though, right now Sue's gonna apologize."
03:56 <Cherry> She frowns and looks over towards the closet. She… doesn't like where this is going.
03:56 <DSJ> "Sue, you're somethin' of an- Jill, I'd hate to shoot you too early, so back away from the closet."
03:56 <Glorpman> Lou tries to just keeps his head down,
03:57 <DSJ> "Anyways, Sue, you ever paint with blood?"
03:58 <Cherry> Jill stands still. She… stares at the closet, her eyes empty and unemotional. Colour has returned to her face, mostly because Chris doesn't seem to be on her mind right now. She murmurs something, it starts with an 'n', but that's about all anyone can make out.
03:59 <Cherry> She stares, lost in thought. Bad time to… doze off, but well, that's just Jil.
03:59 <Cherry> *Jill
04:00 <Kade> Sue laughs brightly. "Not really, no. Clots up too fast for it to work well, and it'd change to a different color too fastf. Lemme guess- painting with my own blood?" He eyes crinkle in amusement.
04:01 <DSJ> "Sorta. Jill, how much blood can you take outta a man before he dies?"
04:02 <Cherry> Jill turns around at his query. "About… forty percent or so from maximum. So… two litres I guess." She finds herself spurting out the same information she's rehearsed countless times so far without thinking.
04:02 <Cherry> She does her best to get her mind off the closet for a second.
04:04 <DSJ> "Right. Larry, you got that med kit?" He asks one of the armed men, who nods and throws it to him. He catches it, and opens it up. There's a few things in there, including an IV.
04:06 <DSJ> "So Sue, what we'll be doin, is stickin this in your arm, and you're gonna paint with it. You'll have to keep goin' until you pass out, and then assumin' you don't die, you'll be free to go."
04:09 <Cherry> Jill frowns. She's thinking about quickly pumping some of her own blood into Sue. Sadly, they're incompatible. Jill stares silently. He'll…. make it. Probably. As soon as the drip goes out the moment he passes out and doesn't draw much more blood, he… should be fine. "Can I give him medical attention when he passes out?" Jill asks, silently.
04:10 <DSJ> "Nah."
04:10 <Cherry> Jill winces visibly.
04:10 <DSJ> "Your friend, Lou, can though."
04:11 <DSJ> (Kade?)
04:11 <Cherry> Jill turns to Lou and mouths something- a just audible four syllables: "AB Minus"
04:12 <Glorpman> Lou looks up, "Alright."
04:12 <Glorpman> Lou nods at Jill.
04:12 <Kade> "Heh, alright then. You st least gonna clean the blood outta my brushes once I'm done?"
04:13 <DSJ> "Hell, sure." The IV is set up, and Sue's given his brushes.

04:19 <Glorpman> "Can I help him now?"
04:20 <DSJ> "Feel free to. After that, you'll be stabbin' the bar owner to death, so it might help to know ya did something nice first."
04:20 <Kade> The puicture is if Sue slitting his own arm into a paint bucket
04:21 <Cherry> Jill's breathing is heavy and uneven. She feels… dizzy.

04:22 <DSJ> And it shows, but you eventually manage to stop Sue's bleeding, after which the bartender is carried onto the table and dropped into it.
04:23 <Fiesta> (I'll be here under my alt nick)
04:23 <Fiesta> (The uh… my ZNC is not happy)
04:23 <DSJ> "So, Lou, I'd recommend goin' for the throat. Should keep things short and quick."
04:24 <Glorpman> "What do you mean?"
04:24 <DSJ> "I mean," he says, handing Lou a butter knife, "You're going to be stabbin' this man to death."
04:25 <Fiesta> Jill winces- she feels like she's about to throw up. She turns around towards the closet, then back towards the man. No matter where she looks- there're just bad feelings everywhere. She's shaking, pale, and breathing heavily. She looks for something to hold on to.
04:25 <DSJ> There's a couple chairs she could hold on to
04:26 <Glorpman> Lou doesn't even grab the knife, instead he just lets it fall to the floor. "No, I won't be hurting anyone."
04:26 <DSJ> "Buddy, you're gonna do it, or you're gonna die."
04:27 <DSJ> "There's no ifs and buts about it."

04:30 <DSJ> "Right. Where do you wanna be buried?"
04:30 <Fiesta> "Fuckin. Do it. Lou." Jill sounds frustrated and annoyed. "You'll die otherwise- are you out of your mind?" she lets go of the chair only to almost stumble and fall.
04:31 <DSJ> Meanwhile, you start to wake up, Sue
04:31 <DSJ> Everything aches, but you didn't die
04:32 <Glorpman> "Back in Ireland if you could, also, why do you want me to kill that man if he hasn't done anything wrong?"
04:33 <DSJ> "Because you'll feel sorry about it, which is the whole damn reason I'm bothering to do this."
04:33 <Glorpman> Lou glances at Jill and shakes just shakes his head.
04:33 <DSJ> "Besides, given my current behavior do you really think I give a shit about right and wrong?"
04:34 <DSJ> "Anyways, Harry, shoot the man in the knee, and give him time to reconsider."
04:34 <DSJ> The person apparently named Harry nods and fires.

She shoves the knife into Lou's hands- "What the fuck is wrong- fucking do it." she seems aggravated, almost to the point of crying. She seems to care more about Lou surviving the ordeal than this… random bartender's life or Lou's morals.

04:50 <DSJ> Harry nods and approaches Lou, sinking to the ground as he rests the gun against Lou's chest

04:56 <DSJ> "… whatever. Shoot him if he gets up. Jill, you can open the closet now." He says, a grin returning to his face.
04:56 <Glorpman> "C-could you please hurry up?"
04:57 <Glorpman> Can Lou reach the medkit?
04:58 <DSJ> He can't.
04:58 <Fiesta> Jill looks up. She's still shivering, and breathing heavy. "W-What?" she asks, quietly. She's… obviously heard Chris, but… after a long sigh, she stands up and stumbles, nearly falling down. She limps over to the closet, slowly. After what seems like an eternity, she stands in front of it. She looks down at the handles, quietly.
04:58 <DSJ> "Go on, do it!"
04:59 <Glorpman> "M-may I use the medkit?"
04:59 <Fiesta> Moments pass, Jill is… almost crying. She knows what's in there… she knows- her hands are on the handles. She slowly, but surely opens the closet. She looks inside-
05:00 <DSJ> "Buddy, kill the guy and you can."
05:00 <Glorpman> Lou stays quiet.
05:01 <DSJ> Natalie's in there, hanging from the coat rack inside by her arms. Bruises and scabbed over cuts cover her skin, and her eyes look at you with wild panic. She screams some, her voice tired and hoarse, and eventually falls silent.
05:01 <Fiesta> (One second :D)
05:04 <Fiesta> Jill covers her mouth- her eyes wide open. She stumbles backwards, her hands looking for something to hold on to. But… to no avail. Jill falls down on her rear, her face is blank, her breathing speeds up, for a moment, she… her stomach turns, she feels… ill, dizzy, and all other kinds of bad things. "S-Sam…" she says, quietly. Her voice is shaky, her mouth is dry, her muscles won't
05:04 <Fiesta> cooperate even in the slightest.
05:05 <DSJ> "Now, you're probably wondering why I saved this for last, and it's pretty simple. You'll be taking out her eyes, tounge, and at least five fingers. If ya go for ten, hell, you get to take the dice with you."
05:05 <Glorpman> Can Lou see?
05:06 <DSJ> Probably a little bit, but his view is pretty obstructed
05:07 <Glorpman> Can he tell that the stone lady is there?
05:07 <DSJ> Sure
05:08 <Fiesta> Jill… understands the man's words, but… her brain refuses to process them. Instead, she tries to stand up, desperately looking for something to lean on. Her hands find support at a nearby pool table. She looks down at the green fabric. Well… it doesn't look that green now that Jill's breakfast is sprayed all over it.
05:08 <Glorpman> "W-watch out Jill!"
05:08 <Fiesta> Lou's words land on deaf ears.
05:10 <DSJ> "You're gonna have to, or I'm going to kill you, and actually kill him, and probably Sue too."
05:11 <Fiesta> "…" Jill looks down at the table. For a moment she thinks- there has to be a way out of this. There has to be a way to… somehow… "M-Me." she stammers, followed and preceded by something… incomprehensible.
05:11 <DSJ> "Course, that reneges on my agreement to let him go, but I don't give a damn, I'm not wasting my evening to watch some bench warming, spineless assholes fail to do the simplest goddamn things."
05:12 <Fiesta> "Let… it be m-me." Jill stammers, her breathing is heavy, she retches- but her stomach is empty.
05:14 <Fiesta> Jill looks around. Exits, cover, furniture? Anything- what's the bar look like? Anything at all of note?
05:14 <Fiesta> 4df+4 You want a PERC roll? Have it- sure

05:17 <DSJ> "So are you gonna do it?"
05:17 <Fiesta> Jill stumbles along the pool table, "What… do you mean?" she asks, quietly. She feels… sick, offended, ill… She looks over at Sam and feels her dizzyness giving way to a headache. She falls down on the floor, her muscles refusing to do… just about anything.
05:18 <DSJ> "Fingers, eyes, and tounge. Take 'em out and off, and I'll let y'all go with the dice."
05:20 <Fiesta> "Why…" Jill retches once again, staring up at the lights on the ceiling. "Why… do you want this?"
05:20 <DSJ> "Well, you lied to me, and I felt insulted."
05:21 <Fiesta> "Why… her." she asks
05:21 <DSJ> "Plus, once you can do the shit I can do, everything else is kinda boring."

05:23 <Fiesta> "Ten. And an ear." she says, silently. "Take off… all my fingers, a-and an ear, on top of the other things… please…" she looks up at the ceiling, tears streaming down her face.
05:23 <Glorpman> Lou watches in horror as this is going on, he is absolutely overwhelmed at this point.
05:24 <DSJ> "We ain't maimin' you girl, christ."
05:26 <Fiesta> For one moment she… considers grabbing her gun and shooting. Though it's… complete suicide, there's not much else she can do at this point. Instead she lays on the floor, staring at the ceiling. She thinks… there has to be a way out of this… somehow. Any… concrete? Anywhere? Granted Sam is capable of even doing anything.
05:26 <DSJ> Nope, all wood.
05:26 <Fiesta> anything… even remotely of interest or usefullness?
05:27 <DSJ> Christopher tosses her a medical kit. "We've got some painkillers, too, the good stuff. Oughta numb the whole thing for her.
05:27 <DSJ> *"
05:28 <Fiesta> Jill catches it and looks inside. Tools? What's in it? Exact things, please ;~;
05:28 <Fiesta> Well, "catch"
05:28 <Fiesta> It kind of falls on her chest
05:28 <DSJ> The kind of stuff you'd need for the surgery she's being asked to do.
05:29 <DSJ> I'm not a real doctor, I wouldn't know what'd that entail
05:29 <Fiesta> ..Alcohol.
05:29 <Fiesta> Jill looks- is there a bottle of alcohol and a rag?
05:30 <DSJ> Nope, just scalpels and all that stuff. Some morphine, too.
05:30 <Fiesta> How do you expect surgery without disinfecting agents oh god ;~;
05:30 <DSJ> Oh yeah there's that stuff too
05:31 <DSJ> I thought you meant like, something for her to drink jfc me
05:31 <Fiesta> …No like
05:31 <Fiesta> Pure cleaning alcohol
05:31 <Fiesta> Jesus ;~;
05:31 <DSJ> There's definitely that
05:33 <Fiesta> Jill grabs the medical kit and stands up, her legs are… shaky. "Can I… at least clean her wounds beforehand?" Jill asks, quietly, leaning against the closet. She's facing Nat.
05:33 <DSJ> "Sure, sure." Four med rolls, sil vous plait
05:33 <Fiesta> (Four med rolls- what am I exactly doing here?)
05:35 <DSJ> Y'know, surgery, so one roll for the eyes, then the tounge, then two rolls for the fingers. You can do a fifth for cleanup
05:35 <Fiesta> I uh… was planning on something else if you wouldn't mind.
05:36 <Fiesta> Alcohol is incredibly flammable as you might know- I knew giving Jill a lighter would be useful ^w^ Can I try~?
05:36 <DSJ> I mean you're probably going to end up almost dying, but sure go ahead
05:37 <Fiesta> Almost dying is better than… y'know, dead. Setting the place on fire might help our situation just a tiny bit. Kade, Glorpman, you guys here?
05:37 <Fiesta> Where are the men located, in what pattern do they stand?
05:38 <DSJ> Pretty spread out, you wouldn't be able to get them all- this would be an ENGI roll btw
05:38 <Glorpman> Lou is on the ground, he's seen better days and worse days too.
05:38 <Fiesta> Would rolling MED not work considering it's… well, some sort of Chemistry?
05:39 <DSJ> Nope
05:39 <Glorpman> I would've though it would be 2 different rolls, one ranged for throwing it and own for making it
05:39 <DSJ> That'd be SCI anyways, given its chemistry
05:40 <Fiesta> Gotcha, gotcha. Jill's back is turned to them all, can they… see what she's doing?
05:40 <DSJ> Some of them can, and Christopher's moved to watch her carve Natalie up
05:41 <Fiesta> Sorry for asking so many questions <3 I'd like to brew up a plan heh. Only her hands are tied with rope right?
05:41 <Glorpman> Can Lou?
05:42 <DSJ> Lou can, sort of. Her hands are chained to the coat rack in the closet
05:42 <Fiesta> Right…
05:44 <Fiesta> 4df eh… inconspicuously try and create a molotov
05:44 <Glacon> Fiesta: eh… inconspicuously try and create a molotov: 1 (4df=0, 0, 0, 3+)

05:45 <DSJ> You succeed in burning your hands a little, and dropping the alcohol bottle on the ground where it splashes to no avail
05:46 <DSJ> Christopher laughs a little at it
05:46 <Fiesta> "Fucking-" she jumps backwards, looking at the floor dejectedly.
05:47 <Fiesta> Well shite
05:47 <DSJ> "Are you gonna do this or should I get to beheadin' Lou?"
05:47 <Fiesta> The uh… alcohol on the floor isn't enough to start a fire? :L
05:48 <DSJ> Nope.
05:49 <Fiesta> Jill stares at Nat. She looks her in the eyes, her hands are still shaking, tears rolling down her face. "Anything… else. Please…" she pleads.
05:49 <DSJ> "Nope. See, if you weren't so opposed to this, I'd find something worse
05:49 <DSJ> *. "
05:49 <DSJ> "But things bein' the way they are, this is what you gotta do."
05:52 <DSJ> "I mean, in any event I can do far worse things to her than this, ya know."
05:53 <Fiesta> "I'll… remove her toes and one ear if you let her keep an eye and her tongue." she frowns, looking at Natalie. Tears are streaming down her face.
05:54 <DSJ> "That's still not enough. One eye, an ear, and her hands."
05:58 <Fiesta> Jill figures that since Sam can manipulate concrete, she can utilise them as appropriate usable appendages. She digs into the medical kit. Looks like Chris was prepared- a bone saw. She looks up at Sam, grabbing the small syringe. Jill starts by injecting the morphine, waiting for it to take effect. Then… she starts with Natalie's ear. Through her tears and sobs, she whimpers. "I'm… s-sorry."
05:59 <Fiesta> Want me to skip over the descriptions of cutting Sam's stuff out?
05:59 <DSJ> Four med rolls, and yeah that's probably for the best
05:59 <Fiesta> 4df+5
05:59 <Fiesta> 4df+5
05:59 <Fiesta> 4df+5
05:59 <Fiesta> 4df+5
06:00 <Fiesta> (Glaaaaaacoooooon)
06:00 <Fiesta> (GLAAAAACOOOOON)
06:00 <DSJ> did you put a space in?
06:00 <Fiesta> 4df+5
06:00 <Glacon> Fiesta: 6 (4df+5=3+, 4-, 0, 3+)
06:00 <Fiesta> (Huh. Guess Glacon is broken)
06:00 <Fiesta> 4df+5
06:00 <Glacon> Fiesta: 4 (4df+5=3+, 0, 4-, 4-)
06:00 <Fiesta> 4df+5
06:00 <Glacon> Fiesta: 6 (4df+5=4-, 3+, 0, 3+)
06:00 <Fiesta> 4df+5
06:00 <Glacon> Fiesta: 5 (4df+5=4-, 3+, 0, 0)
06:01 <Fiesta> (Jill rolled a 6- she gets +4 bonus on the next MDEF roll btw)
06:01 <DSJ> It goes as smoothly as surgery in a closet can. The tounge removal is a little messy, but in the end it's a success.
06:02 <Fiesta> Jill falls down on her behind and covers her face with her hands. She… cries, softly.
06:03 <DSJ> "Well fuckin' done. Let's head out, here's the dice." They're thrown at Lou as Christopher and his ilk depart
06:03 <Fiesta> Jill immediately jumps up and tries to undo the chains if at all possible-
06:03 <Fiesta> We have a fucking bonesaw can she use that to undo them? ;~;
06:03 <DSJ> Yeah
06:04 <Fiesta> (Wait)
06:04 <Fiesta> (Oh nvm)
06:04 <Glorpman> Who got the dice?
06:04 <Fiesta> They were thrown at Lou.
06:05 <Fiesta> Is Natalie conscious?
06:05 <DSJ> Natalie, still groggy, tries opening her eyes, and tries to scream in distress once she realizes it's gone. And then, she realizes she can't scream and she just fails
06:05 <DSJ> *flails
06:06 <Fiesta> Jill uses the bonesaw to undo Natalie's chains.
06:06 <DSJ> It works, eventually.
06:06 <Glorpman> Can Lou roll the dice?
06:06 <Fiesta> Also uh- just one eye right?
06:07 <DSJ> A person enters the building after a car pulls up, the interviewer from before, a look of shock on his face
06:07 <DSJ> And yes
06:07 <Fiesta> Good good
06:07 <DSJ> Lou can, I guess
06:07 <Fiesta> Jill looks at Nat, tears streaming down her face. "I-I'm… s-sorry…."
06:07 <Glorpman> Lou rolls the dice in order to see if it can help.
06:07 <DSJ> two d6
06:07 <Glorpman> (Just a d6 right?)
06:08 <Glorpman> d6
06:08 <Glacon> Glorpman: 6 (d6=6)
06:08 <Glorpman> d6
06:08 <Glacon> Glorpman: 4 (d6=4)
06:08 <DSJ> "…….. I can see why you needed a ride, now. God, he really has lost it……I'm…. sorry that I let this happen.
06:08 <DSJ> *"
06:08 <DSJ> Tyler says this, to clarify
06:08 <Glorpman> (Is that everything times 4?)
06:09 <DSJ> (yep)
06:09 <Fiesta> Jill stares at Nat, waiting for a reply.
06:09 <Fiesta> Well… a "reply"
06:09 <DSJ> (well, all attributes times four)
06:09 <DSJ> (not skills)
06:09 <DSJ> Nat slumps to the floor, weeping silently
06:10 <DSJ> She doesn't even look at Jill
06:10 -!- Prior [ciaf.mud.ru|gnihgual#ciaf.mud.ru|gnihgual] has quit [Quit: Connection closed for inactivity]
06:10 <Fiesta> Jill is leaning against the pool table, weeping not-so-silently. She's… practically bawling.
06:10 <Glorpman> Lou heads over to Jill, he looks much better, much much better. "Jill, are you alright?"
06:11 <Fiesta> Jill nearly pushes Lou away, refusing to talk or make eye contact.
06:12 <Glorpman> Lou decides it's best to leave Jill alone walks over to Tyler and hands him the dice carefully, "Here."
06:12 <DSJ> "… did he roll these?"
06:12 <Glorpman> "No."
06:12 <Glorpman> Lou sounds pissed.
06:14 <DSJ> "..please, please tell me if he did, because if he did… fuck. I don't want to say that this was all… wasted effort because I've been through this shit myself, but he's not going to lose its… effects… if he rolled."
06:17 <Glorpman> "No he didn't. What he did do was shoot me, make Sue paint with his blood, and make Jill mutilate some anomalous lady."
06:17 <DSJ> (did Lou not see Christopher roll?)
06:18 <Fiesta> "Concrete." Jill turns to Tyler, tears rolling down her face. She's white, pale. "Concrete. Now. Please!" she yells. Jill… knows you don't just find blocks of concrete laying around on the floor, but she's pretty desperate.
06:19 <Glorpman> (No, I don't even see it anywhere in the logs)
06:19 <DSJ> "…. I see. Uhm, Jill… I..I'm sorry. I'm sorry this happened to all of you but… I don't have any concrete. I can, uh… well, I should be able to get rid of the memories. And the associated feelings. If you want."
06:20 <Fiesta> (? You didn't?)
06:20 <Glorpman> (No, can Jill say that she did?)
06:20 <Fiesta> (:L Jill's a bit uh… preoccupied)
06:21 <Fiesta> "No!" Jill lashes out at Tyler. Forgetting is the last thing she wants at this moment. "Sam- Natalie." she tries to support Natalie, getting her to stand up.
06:21 <DSJ> Natalie moves away from Jill, and gets up on her own.
06:21 <Glorpman> Redact the rolling bit
06:22 <Fiesta> Jill stares at Natalie. "N-Nat… I'm…" she… doesn't know what to say.
06:22 <DSJ> "…. are you sure? Because you're going to keep remembering this all, you know. I remember it, and it never gets easier to deal with."
06:23 <Glorpman> "Wait, yes he did, I think he got a 6 and a 6, I rolled and got a 6 and a 4"
06:23 <Glorpman> "Sue rolled too and got a
06:24 <Glorpman> Redact that last bit.
06:24 <DSJ> "…. fuck. Well, I guess I'll need the multiversal revolver after all… that plan can still work."

06:25 <DSJ> "I'm trying to be nice, right now. But if you're going to try to tell me I don't know what this fucking feels like, you're wrong."
06:26 <Fiesta> "Then leave me alone!" she yells, backing away from Tyler.

06:31 <DSJ> Unconscious guy managed to bleed out
06:31 <Cherry> Memories scr-what?
06:31 <DSJ> scrubbed
06:31 <Glorpman> (Do I even need to roll?)
06:31 <Cherry> …Nat or Jill?
06:31 <DSJ> Nat
06:32 <Cherry> "N-Nat-" Jill tries to stand up and just barely manages. "Why… you don't have to…" she looks down at the floor.
06:33 <DSJ> "… I mean it kinda looks like she was maybe tortured."

06:34 <Cherry> "What… memories are being scrubbed?" Jill asks, "Specifically… Which ones?"
06:34 <DSJ> Nat tries to kick Jill, her face angry as hell
06:34 <DSJ> "Whichever she wants, I guess"
06:34 <DSJ> "Concrete, right? I'll see to it she gets some."
06:34 <Cherry> Jill… doesn't avoid Natalie's kick. Instead she… takes it. She groans and falls to her knees.
06:35 <DSJ> It's a really weak kick
06:35 <Cherry> Then let it be an emotional groan!
06:35 <Cherry> Jill murmurs, "I'll… do anything to make it up to you. I… promise."
06:36 <Glorpman> I'm guessing 25 strength is more than enough to carry them both?
06:36 <DSJ> Tyler heads to the van outside, and will drive everyone to the airfield when they're in the car
06:36 <Cherry> Yeah no Jill's going to resist being carried :L
06:36 <DSJ> of course, even despite Jill resisting
06:37 <Cherry> 4df+3 can she limply strafe away from Lou with an AGI roll and just- walk herself?
