And then you're waking up. You're laying under a freeway overpass. There's a road next to you with cars going by. You are in a parking lot. There's an abandoned, junked out rusted car sitting nearby.

Over on a nearby wall, you see a caricature of a man being shot with the caption "Be a Good Citizen. Five Minutes Minimum."

Whisp's 357 is in your reattached right hand. It's fully loaded with six bullets.

All of your other gear is laying around you.

And you feel the scriff sense of another verser off in the distance.

"Man, waking up without arms and legs would suck.  New world, new options. I gather all my nearby gear, and tuck the pistol in behind my back, under the cloak.

Actually, this is modern, probably laws in place.... let's hide it all for now.

I unequip all my weapons and store them in my bag (that is nearby, right?)

I then hoist the bag onto my shoulder and start walking towards the road, to see what other buildings are in the area.


See, I have a triangular healing device in a belt pouch on my waist. It should heal me to full, and I was going to use that to reattach my arms and legs.

One thing you notice right away is that all of your magic weapons are completely deactivated. No magic will work in this world at all.

But yeah, your bag is nearby. Did you leave any gear at the Tower? Because if so, there's an equipment sense going to that as well.

It's your typical downtown city area. Office buildings, restaurants, McBurger, Burger Duke, Dairy King, etc.

You see a lot of propaganda posters. "Be a Good Citizen. Pick up litter." "Be a Good Citizen. No loud music after eight PM." The one you see most often though is the caricature of the man being shot, with the caption "Be a Good Citizen. Five Minutes Minimum."

Walking down the road, you find a sidewalk. Every person that passes you on the street nods and says "Greetings Good Citizen."

You see a beat cop walking down the street. He's got the standard uniform, toolbelt, handcuffs, flashlight, etc. But instead of a handgun, he's carrying a very high end paintball gun.

OOC) But how were you going to use it with no arms or legs? Fear not. You'll get a rematch with Whisp.

I also nod and say "Greetings Good Citizen," to anyone I pass by. I start wandering through alleys and out of the way places looking for resident thugs or scummy types.

Don't know a thing, don't know the currency.  Best to rob some punks and see what I can find out.  Should also be on the lookout for cameras. Also, is that a paintball gun? Is this a nonlethal world? Color wars? Bah, rob a thug, go from there.

As I walk, I look around for anything that might be a camera.

So you're walking through an alley looking for some trouble. A kid pulls a paintball gun on you and fires once hitting your chest.

You see security cameras here and there. Not like Big Brother style watching every move everyone makes. Or maybe you're just not seeing them all.

Oh. So that's what the 5 minutes minimum was for.  It just occurred to me. Never played paintball back on earth. Should I ignore it? I shouldn't. But I need information.
"Hey not quite good, but also not bad citizen. I have some questions for you, and I request your cooperation. Please advise."

Yea, that should do it.  I wonder if I'm on camera right now.

Other than speaking, I don't move or do anything.

The kid looks at you nervously. He shoots you again with the paintball gun. When you still just stand there, he starts quaking in his boots.

"Maan, you're supposed to die when you get shot!!!!"

He's just standing there looking like a rookie cop who just watched a T-800 take two 45 slugs.

I quickly close the gap between us ((Not sure how far away he is)), and disarm him; I then pin him to the ground. ((Putting those unarmed combat skills to use.))

"Yea, let's drop the act. So, kid. Let's talk. These paintball guns, are they actually supposed to kill people? Or are we to just lie on the ground for a while?  What constitutes the battle field? Just the alleys? Can you attack on the streets? What are the rules?"


So, my closing plan in verser world was to cauterize wounds to survive, then pull knife out of boot with teeth, and use the healing of the chaos knife to attach one arm (after moving over by rolling / squirming).  Once one arm is attached, I would then attach the other parts of my body together and use the healing triangle to get back to full. Also had a few options for reattaching arms - as well as the creation of arms using elemental magic - to facilitate while I survive. Water magic could probably increase blood count and blood flow.  Had a few plans, though I haven't ever versed when dismembered so was unaware of the risks.

The kid is maybe 10 feet away. When you attack him, his face takes on a look of extreme horror. This is new to him. It's like he's never even been in a fight before in his life. You take him down without breaking a sweat.

The kid is frightened. You can tell he's never been so scared in his life. He starts talking, babbling.

"Maan, don't you, don't you know anything? You're supposed to die for five minute when when you get shot. Everybody knows that. Cops, everybody. If you get shot in the street or someplace else that isn't safe, you're allowed to move to the sidewalk first, but that's it. You're supposed to lay down for five minutes when you get shot. The needles man. The needles."

OOC) I wanted to verse you out of that world. Fear not. You'll get a rematch with Whisp sometime in the future.

"What are the needles? Also, what needles?"

I pick up the weapon and shoot him once in the leg.

"Ok, so you're dead for 5 minutes, keep talking. Have any money on you? Also, what places are safe? Take your time, we're not going anywhere."
