My luck with food is usually in the bar, personally.
Quit warning them, I want to see their relationships as red as their blood. :)
Obviously I need to spend less time hosting this game and more on actually playing it. (It's weird though, I think I found a couple small meals in the diner once. Hmm. Maybe they changed that for the latest patches. No idea why though. Seriously, why did the devs think it was a good idea to put absolutely no food in the diner? WTF.)
(Maybe it's random, and the game simply decided to screw us?)
There's usually around ten small meals in the diner, actually, at least by my experience. This group just has no luck.
Maybe it's something silly like it being such a obvious place to keep food in that other survivors,like the mob, has already taken all the food?
...yeah I don't know either.
(I chalk it up to them just looooving to mess with us. I waited with breaching until I was starving the first time, too, and I was NOT amused.)
The only food left here is rotten... I've looked everywhere, but there's nothing. Just weapons discarded by whoever else has been here...
You shouldn't be mad at the scavengers, Jiraiya. They must be just like us, trying to survive and escape... It'd be hypocritical to be mad at them when we were going to do the same thing.
Hopefully there's still food in the store... If nothing else, there should be snacks there. Yeah, let's go breach the store.
... Minato, you doing okay? Can you hold on until then?
And Amano... are you feeling any better? Now that we've been away from that factory for a bit? He's still pale... looks tired, too... I hope he isn't sick...
(... Is it possible that the diner had small meals only, and because we've taken so long that food has spoiled? Crap.)
AFAIK meals don't spoil if you're not in the same building as them. Yeah, doesn't make sense, but I think that's it. Somebody back me up here.
Nope, they won't spoil unless you're in there with them.
((Makes sense. I breached the hotel once which immediately spoiled a large meal there because there were thirty zombies dead by the end of the breach.
In related news the cast of Ultraviolet can kick ass with the best of them.))
If there's anything I know about the RNG (well before this game), it's that it's ALWAYS doing something to mess you up. It doesn't matter if you know it is or not, it's doing something evil to you.
RNG is friend to no one.
(Why do you do this to me, Cat? I just want to hug him, but... I kind of want to run away.)
*stiffens at the familiar voice, but does not turn around*
This isn't real. This isn't real.
This is not real.
*breathes a sigh of relief when they leave the factory, but feels guilt fill him*
I'll help breach the store too, then I will watch if no one wants to, but if someone does, I'll help search.
((I'm back, much earlier than expected!))
I'm... positive that I picked up the gun when I started doing my modifications...
(> You stare at the hardened baseball bat while tilting your head in confusion.)
This is not an Evoker.
... I think I need to eat something. I'll help breach the store, then keep watch so that searching can go faster.
((I am completely okay with this. At this point Minato's inability to modify the firearm is something I find hilarious to watch read. The whole group's sniping stat is shit anyway, so I'm sticking to modifying weapons for close combat or assaulting.))
I still have to catch up, I'll just let you know that I love you all and that I'm playing right now.
And failing. Goddamit Fenris, stop turning into a zombie.
Can I be add to the waitlist? Maybe I'll learn how to play in the meantime.
So we breach the NW store and HOLY SHIT BLOODSTAINS WHO GOT KILLED THIS TI-
Oh. Okay. Kikky just got bruised, no biggie.
HNGGGH MY HEART
Anyway, I finished searching the store, but a couple people are still hungry. Let me know what you want to do next.
Teddybear of Death
Sure! Sharp Whiskey hasn't replied to the summons, so I'll scratch their name off the list and put you in their place, if that's all right with you.
I'm okay with that, if Sharp Whiskey doesn't mind.
Edit: Thank you, Fointaine! The link is broken, btw XD You already fixed it XD
((No one's seen Sharp since early January, so it probably won't matter.
Also, I love you for putting the DA2 gang in this.))
Ah... Not quite sure how that happened but - I'm fine, really. Everyone's safe, right? Nobody got hurt?
At least we have food, now... I wouldn't know what we'd have done if people started starving.
... But we've gotten way off track from our earlier plan. We could breach-search the house next to us, then... I'm curious about the factory up in the corner of the city, actually, it seems like the place most likely to have car parts. So maybe if we move onto that factory and search it fully once we've looked around the house a bit...? How does that sound?
Well, he just has to say the word anyway.
I had to. Not all of them, but still. It's good having Anders and Fenris throwing mirrors at each other and then becoming BFFs.
((Minato, that is not a gun you are modifying what are you doing stahp))
If we're done searching here, it's best to keep moving. Since most of us are hungry, the the nearby store looks like a promising place to breach-search. When we're done with that place, we can breach-search the house next door in the hope of a map.
((I can hear "Do You Hear the People Sing" in Korean coming from my parents' room. The cult is spreading <3))
Can I combine these two suggestions into: breach-search the store and house, and then breach the NW corner factory and search it fully? Your characters are still hungry though, so I'll probably search the store until you're no longer hungry, so I don't need to bring along as much food. Will that work for you?
((When my friend gets here as a minimum I am going to tell her thanks to her telling me about Les Mis I have gotten easily ten people to watch/sing songs from it.
Minato and the gun fail is one of my favourite running ZD gags.))
CUTECAT'S AVATAR KEEPS CHANGING EVERYTIME I BLINK ASFJF;JOSDFLH;SDFKDFJHDSFOHS
((Could we maybe assault the factory at least once before breaching? Can't hurt to be too cautious, after all. Otherwise, I'm good with this plan.))
>> Kikari, are you sure you're okay?
>... Would another hug help?
(Sounds fine with me!)
I SORT OF HAVE A STOCK OF THEM NOW)
I'm alright, really... Don't worry about me, okay? I wouldn't uh... really mind another hug... but I'm fine!
There's that voice again... That does sound like a good course of action.
... You've been talking a lot about hearing or seeing things, Amanohashi... Are you really feeling alright? You can tell us if something's wrong, okay?
If there's anything I can do to help...
Welcome to the thread, Antiqua! :)
(> ... What will you do?)
> Hug Kikari
>> Hug Kikari
(> Your relationship is stronger now!)
(> The Friendly Reploid Social Link has reached level 2!
> Your power to create Personas of the Temperance Arcana has grown!)
... You'll get used to the voices. Trust me.
I don't suppose you've seen the coffins around midnight as well, have you?
I'm sure it's nothing. Probably just stress or exhaustion.
Not that I can recall... Why?
I guess the theory on the Potential being the cause of the voices is out, then.
I breach the store SW of the diner.
Thanks to Minato's failures efforts, we have an increasingly badass stash of modified weapons.
I finish searching the store and immediately move on to the house above us.
Then we assault the factory, taking down a huge bunch of zombies outside it.
All right! We breach the factory and Kikky and Minato just levelled up to Temperance Level 3, I think. Also Minato is being a klutz again. :/
We find a totally useless clue because the battery isn't one of the parts we need. Also we're AT 2 Bison Court right now, so it's like doubly useless.
Then we find the battery and brake fluid, none of which are essential to our getaway.
Princess finally gets her shit together and starts acting like one.
The factory's 100% searched. Jiraiya's hungry, but he should be fine since we have 3 snacks left. What's next?
Teddybear of Death
((Next, you find some way to nuke the library so it can never hurt anyone ever again
(21 zombies!? Thank God you suggested we assault, Squish.)
Well... These are car parts, alright, but... I don't think we actually need any of this. No map yet, either.
And it's gotten dark... Aah, we have too many places to search! And people are getting tired and we need food again unless someone decides to cook...
We have a lot of ingredients, but we can't carry them all around like this - especially not if we go breach-search - and if we leave them behind, people will end up starving again... We should take most of our ingredients back to the factory where the car is.
After that... Maybe we should breach-search the houses on the east side of the city? If anyone gets too exhausted, let's go back to the (car) factory where we'll be safer.
... Though, come to think of it, it's not much safer than any other place right now... Maybe we should fortify it first? I can help barricade.
(Is it just me or is Amano being... a bad ass? Also, don't we leave the vehicle whenever we go somewhere? If so... is that building fortified? Or is it going to be a bitch getting back in?)
Maybe we should make a safe house soon. We'll need a place to store things and such, won't we?
EDIT2: I agree with Kikari's plan.
((Do parts like the brake fluid do anything other than act like red herrings in our quest to repair the truck?))
I agree with Kikari's plan to take the ingredients back with us. And I'm sure Princess said that she'd be happy to take care of the cooking, so I'll either keep watch if Amanohashi is busy or get started on making that Evoker when we're back at the factory.
(> You take another glance at the two weapons you've created.)
... These were the kind of weapons Junpei and Akihiko would have used. I wonder how the rest of the SEES members are doing right now...
((HOLY SHIT HE FINALLY DID IT I am going to enjoy typing up his mild reaction when he finds out what results out of modifying that handgun...))
EDITTY EDITTY EDIT: I also agree that we should start breach-searching the houses to the east after the factory (where the vehicle is) is fortified.
(>Minato created a spiked handgun)
(And I imagine Amano's got to be used to this by now. Far more used to it than anyone else.
And considering the fate of his last group, he probably wants to ensure everyone's getting out alive this time. You sure wouldn't want to go through that twice.)
