:tronklis: She came to me in my dreams, the most beautiful kobold I've ever seen. If I try hard before I go to sleep, sometimes I get to see her again. I've been getting better at it lately, and tonight I might be able to talk to her. I haven't been able to ask her anything before, but I've been able to see her for longer and longer the more I try. Tonight I'm going to try to talk to her for more than a few minutes, what sort of things should I ask? I have to find her!

Don't break this machine. Look in the green window and look at the scroll. Maybe if Oubliss wished for everyone to be able to read you could tell what it says...

what if.. what if you wished for your team to have the knowledge to understand the objects you find in this place?

That machine looks important. shame you can't read anything on it or what's printed on the paper. Cautiously approach it anyway to get a better look at it and peek behind it, but don't touch it or the paper. Oh, but Oubliss should creep up next to the side hallway first and check it. Take something reflective out of the gear of the least value and use it peek around the corner, checking the hallway ceiling too. A spoon from the mess kit might work for this take. If the hall is clear, then proceed across, leaving someone to watch the entrance and another to watch the side hall for potential incoming trouble.

Before performing any more wishes, Oubliss should confer with the group about wording and what wishes they think would be good. She should also confer with the Crown, running any wishes by it in a "if I wished for this what would the effect be" way first. Hopefully that'll catch any compound wishes or wishes that don't do what you'd like them to.

Next time Oubliss dons the Crown, she should ask the Crown if it could grant seven wishes in total, per person or per group. 'Cause if it can grant seven wishes per person, then jackpot! She should also ask if a single wish could effect or alter everyone in this group of four to the same degree as if it was targeted on one person. Like, if she had wished for everyone in the group to become the strongest kobolds instead of just herself would they have all turned into swolebolds like her? If so, then she'll be kicking herself for not thinking of that first.

A tentative idea for a wish would be for the whole group to be granted universal linguistic understanding; The ability to fluently and accurately read, write, speak and understand any language written, spoken, or conveyed by other means. Another tentative wish idea would be for the group to be granted the ability to know what any object they can detect by any of their senses (sight, touch, etc.) is, what it is commonly used for and its basic operation and any magic effects it may hold, if they focus on it for a moment. Basically a universal identification ability. But don't use a wish for either of these ideas yet and confer with the group on them first.

How many weight points are each of the kobolds just by themselves with their base clothing or naked? That'd be good to know if one of them has to be carried later on.

Also, cutting a short length of the thinner green rope, looping it through the Crown and tying the ends together so it can be secured down would be prudent. That will prevent it from being lost if a the pack it's in pops opens while upside down or thrashed about. Just make sure to check if the Crown will still work if worn while the rope is looped through it.

:tronklis:"Somebody check out that hallway, I'm going to have a look at this crown thing."

:7kings:

--in the interest of brevity, here's how the crown works.--
Each king can only be summoned once per 100 years, there are seven wishes total, no matter who uses them. Anyone can use the item.
They can retrieve magical items that they can physically go get
They cannot impart universal knowledge, and to read/write a single language uses a wish every time.
Changing stats or appearance can only be done to one subject at a time
Nothing can go outside of what the maximum possible for the race would normally be.
There's no intentional malice in regards to wish-granting, so things will be taken as the best outcome possible instead of taking everything literally.
Oubliss is already the best at nose-rubbing


:oubliss:"The hallway looks like it goes in a circle or something, it takes a sharp turn, should I go down it more?"
:tronklis:"Let's have a look at this machine first. It kind of sounds like we can wish for one person to have the ability to kind of 'read' objects by holding them, but it will use another wish"

So there's some problematic item. The weird fleshy arm-gun seems like a likely suspect since it's so out of place. Let's fully explore the area first though.

Also Tronklis you should analyze the purpose of basically anything we're carrying that you don't know what it is. Like the stuff you got from the latest dead guy.

You would even abandon your beloved dream-babe?

Stop. Assess the situation. Create and prioritize objectives based on the situation. Make a plan that achieves the highest objective, and start fitting the rest in. Put that plan into action.

Based on what the situation is, I’d say some pretty good objectives include:
Escape the Labyrinth.
Ensure the other cobalds escape safely.

There’s no reason to assume that achieving objective 1 would necessitate excluding objective 2 as of yet, so we don’t need to take that into consideration yet. We can’t just go back the way we came, so trudging on seems reasonable. This can’t be all there is to this place, after all. Wouldn’t be much of a Labyrinth if it was.

No. 863462 ID: fe7355

Head back to the room with the big beeping machine and rest for a few minutes so Tronklis can wring out his clothes, pop a BEPIS to share and recover a bit. While resting he can ID the items in your group's inventory that y'all don't know the function of or may have additional functionality you don't know. Oubliss and Slorsnis can also run back to the impaled corpse's room to bring the square thing with the buttons back for ID too.

>DON'T READ THE EQUATION!
So, this may mean that your group's illiteracy is actually a plus if you ever run across this "equation" in full or part. Well, unless it does that funky thing the big entrance sign did where y'all could read it without actually knowing how to read.

Well we know there's a way out, we have to throw something into the anomaly. Does Tronklis know what the "anomaly" is at this point?

Is it the circular hallway that isn't supposed to be there in the first place? Hmm... try throwing the gun-arm into the hallway. If that doesn't work, retrieve it, and throw Outissa's gear necklace in.

:tronklis: I'm not using that on anything that's part of this place. That was a terrible idea! We settle down for a bit and I use it on some of the stuff.
Tossing a few things into the hallway doesn't do anything.
The thing with the buttons is some sort of game it turns out, though I'm not sure how it works exactly. Two of the things we have are weapons, looks like you just have to point them at something

"Ok, ok, let's finish checking out that passage to the left of the m-machine room.

We stay together, and make about five or six right turns before coming to a door. I have a very bad feeling about it.


:tronklis:"Th- That's it! That's the Anomaly! We need to leave it alone! Let's get out of here." I have a terrible feeling looking at it, and briefly catch a glimpse of someone sitting in the chair, reading each paper, and placing it on the stack to the side.

The stack of papers must be the equation. Don't go into that room, ever.
Is this the last room in the place?

Before you do anything like throwing a slingstone at it (the voice just said "item" which means it may not matter what we throw into it), check out any unexplored rooms.

:tronklis: The Anomaly room is the only one we hadn't been in, and I'm not inclined to go in it again. I think we should leave it alone.

Oh hey, there's a box we overlooked earlier in the fish room. It's got some more of those cylinder things that I found in the other building! And there's a little paper inside that says how to use it! It looks like you pull the ends off, and then stab a needle into your thigh or shoulder!? I don't think anybody is going to want to try that! There's a lot of tiny words all over it too that even if I could read would probably take hours!

:kloldril:"The top picture looks like a fying pan and a brain, kind of. Do these have something to do with food?"
:slorsnis:"I do like fried brains in milk gravy! Maybe they make things taste like it if you have some nasty food you don't like?"
:tronklis:"I'll take your word for it, I did not like eating that when I was little. I've only seen brains in a gross blob that somebody tricked me into thinking was scrambled eggs!"

:tronklis: We take a bit of a rest, I close my eyes to concentrate because Oubliss won't quit posing. Using the power on the necklace isn't as helpful as using it on the black and orange shooters. The only thing I can get from it is the guy falling off the pier and breaking his neck, though. He got dizzy when he tried looking under it and lost his grip, turns out.
Now, the question is, do we fool with the anomaly or do we try to leave?
