Devilman Exotic Arms (121)

Appropriately enough, this weapons shop is owned by a D'norr Devilman who goes by the name Zo'Wor Kulot'te. Zo'Wor stocks his shop with a variety of rare, unique and exotic armaments from all over the Earth and the Megaverse as well. His inventory includes weapons from across the tech board, including orthodox energy firearms, Technlo-Wizard firearms and the medieval. Odds are whatever you're looking for, it can be found here. Zo'Wor has had some stuff from the New West/Colorado Baronies, Stormspire, Triax, alien blasters, Kittani arms, Bio-Wizard devices, Xitibix resin blades, firearms from Japan's ArmaTech and H-Brand, Elemental Shuriken, and even a Spirit Daisho, as well as a few pieces from both Malkovitch and Bushido Industries. Then too, as a Techno-Wizard himself, Zo'Wor patches together a few weapons of his own design.

+5% to each roll to find exotic weapons of rare, ultra-rare, or legendary rarity

Perception: 1d20+4 = 23
JiC d20/d100: 1d20 = 10 / 1d100 = 15
Charm/Impress ☞ 60% / 1d100 = 53 (for clearly persuasive purposes)
Invoke Trust/Intimidate ☞ 40% / 1d100 = 10 (for clearly persuasive purposes)
Barter ☞ 38% / 1d100 = 35 (if required for negotiations)
Language: American ☞ 75% / 1d100 = 50 (in case language gets technical)

Jez enters the comparatively modest shop, and regards all the unusual weapons on display. Truly, this world is bizarre. Such a blend of the arcane and the hi-tech, the antique and the new. The markets of this world make even the offerings of the TGE Commerce Satellites pale in comparison. Once she is approached, she'll state her purpose plainly. "I'm here to potentially sell a weapon. It has sentimental value to me as it's from my native dimension, and I'm fairly certain that no similar such weapon exists on this world. Would you be able to assess its value and/or provide me an offer if you're interested?"

She will then detail a description of the Atorian Variable Sonic Rifle, and provide the locker number from which it can be examined if necessary.

"Interesting..." Zo'Wur says as Jez describes the Atorian sonic rifle.

"I am always interested in acquisitions of rare weapons. And since the rifle is not manufactured locally, it would fit into this category. But rarity alone does not value make. There must also be demand." Zo'Wur looks Jezebel over before continuing, "You say this rifle has sentimental value to you. Tell me about it and about the action this particular weapon has seen and perhaps I can better gauge a fair offer price."

It seems clear to Jezebel that if Zo'Wur is to spend credits on purchasing the weapon, he wants to pay for both the item and its lore.

Ahh, the unique history sales angle. Kind of makes this place like a boutique weapons shop. I wonder if I should bullshit him? Nah. Frak it. I suppose reality is exotic enough. "Well, to begin with, these are the weapons of choice among many shock troops of the Atorian Empire from my home dimension. The Atorians are a militaristic, acquisitive, and expansionist galactic power rules by six princesses. Their culture is entirely matriarchal, technologically focused, and incredibly ruthless and oppressive." Jez sidles up to the counter near Zo'Wur, gets out a cigar, lights the tip to a cherry red, and continues.

"I came upon this weapon in a skirmish when our group was in...what do you folks call it...K-beck? Anyway, geography isn't my strong suit, but so there we were--no shit--in the middle of some strange cave complex buried in a mountainside when we figure out that it's not a cave, and it's not a mountain. It's a frakking mountain-sized factory satellite from another dimension that's on this planet for some reason, and for some even more inscrutable reason, I find this Atorian weapon among the brick-brack of this complex. I use it to fight off these giant, mechanized crab-like machines, and we escape from the satellite by the skin of our teeth moments before it jumps...no, that's not the term Reaper used...before it folds space and disappears...presumably back to its native dimension, but who really knows, right? I was just glad to be off that rock." Jez considers this string of events a moment, puffing away happily on the cigar.

"Oh wait, no. We ended up on Eyelor...I think that's what it was called. Anyway, it was basically a crazy person's version of hell. Made a deal for our hides with some sort of big-ass tentacle monster that scared the shit outta everyone. I think the others called it a Splugorth. Anyway, that excursion netted us a pretty penny in salvage, but our employer soon sent us to South America...Columbia, I believe was the name of the place."

Jez takes another long, satisfying pull from the cigar. "Anyway, it's a fetid jungle filled with monsters, half-savage humanoids, and some petty dictatorships. We end up fighting off some locals, some monsters, and some nasty diseases down there, and this rifle really saved my back-side a couple times as it has a non-lethal setting that's really effective at incapacitating the target, even if he's in armor. Anyway, that mission was a wash as our employer didn't think it would be a good venue for business. So our employer next sends us to this place called 'The Devil's Tower' out in what Greasy, my sidekick, calls the Wyoming Territories, where we end up clashing with some mages, and also an ancient political-military sect that call themselves 'The Republicans,' and I know all this because this rifle makes it so I don't have to kill everyone who fraks with me in the heat of battle. Saves me a few to interrogate, you see? Anyway, after that crap sandwich, I basically told our employer to get bent, and here I am. Shall I recount to you my experiences of torture as a prisoner of war among the Atorians in my native dimension too, or is that enough?"

"Mmm," Zo'Wur smiles, clearly satisfied with the legend. "That shall suffice. It sounds like you and that weapon indeed have quite a bit of history. You must have fallen on some hard times to be looking to off-load such sentimentality." The D'norr Devilman taps his chin thoughtfully as he considers his options.

"I'm feeling particularly generous after that story," he says, breaking the silence after a tense 30 seconds. "I am willing to offer you 50,000 universal credits for your rifle... However, there is one contingency I have for offering such a handsome sum: that you leave your contact information in case I have a mission that could use your unique expertise."

Jez considers his offer for a split second. That sum's a bit on the light side, fella. "One moment, please." She steps away from Zo'Wor to make a call on her phone. She dials the number for the NG store. Once she's on the phone with them, she asks for Francis. Once he's on the line, she'll tell him her decision thus far. "Francis, I'll take you up on the 60k in-store credit for the Gladius. I'll be over shortly to get the NGME card biometrically secured to my own ident. Have your techs examined the other item we spoke of yet? I remind you that your pre-inspection offer was 3.25 million universal." She throws Zo'Wor a wink as she says this. She's not been speaking quietly, but the MTE phone's audio is pre-set fairly low given her rather sensitive hearing.

Francis' voice comes in clear over her phone. "Confirmed. 60k credit for the Gladius. As for the other item, the tech has arrived and is in the process of running diagnostics on your system. Shouldn't be much longer. But so far, so good."

Jezebel's bargaining prowess is met with a smile and chuckle from Zo'Wur. "Alright, you've convinced me. I will give you 50k for the rifle and an extra 50k to retain you to hear me out for jobs I might have in the future."

Jez smiles and shakes the proprietor's hand quickly, firmly, and briskly. "Well bargained, and done." She hands over her Non-Secure Universal Card for him to add the credits to it. When that's done, she'll hand him the tag to retrieve the weapon from the Defenders' storage armories. Made a few extra credits and made a business contact. Good day so far. Once the exchange is completed, Jez will add, "Okay, now that that's done, what would you like me to hear?"

((NOTE: Jezebel's equipment thread was not altered. So you don't have the funds unless you updated it yourself.))

Zo'Wur smiles, "I appreciate your eagerness, but I do not have something quite as of yet. If you tell me your team's capacity and give me a frequency I can reach you at, I can contact you when a suitable project comes along." The Devilman seems genuine in his desire to test out Jez's crew, but currently without 'opportunities'.

OOC: 100k funds added to Jez's secure card.

(rolls carried over)

Jez provides Zo'Wur with her MTE cellular number for in-town contact. "If we're in the field, we're effectively unreachable given this planet's curious rejection or ignorance of orbital comm-sats. When we're in town--like at present--this is currently the best way to reach us." Regarding the question of the team's capacity, Jez breaks down the former Explorers Inc. in the simplest terms of manpower, hardware, experience, and specialization of personnel. She then sums it up. "I think we're just about best-suited to reconnaissance or espionage, but really we're competent and flexible enough to handle any task of a manageable scale." She bids Zo'Wur adieu, and heads back out to the NG store trying not to look back at the Atorian weapon she'd just traded away for a song.

Well, the sign made it easy to pick him out!

"Hey hey, I'm John and based on my last conversation, I doubt you'll have it, but I'm looking for a weapon that can kill ghosts, spirits, entities, that kind of thing. Intangible critters. If it's a sword, that's preferable. If it's a really huge sword, that's even better. If there's a separate show room for gear for giants and giant robots, I wouldn't mind taking a look at that, too."

Zo'Wur smiles. "A separate showroom?" He laughs warmly, "No, friend, I'm afraid not. I don't run an expansive, meet-every-need operation like NG. My shop is but a humble operation catering to the 'exotic' niche market." He considers John's request, "I've heard of incredibly powerful and rare weapons such as you describe, I've even seen one upon one occasion as a young mind melter in the local merc squad, Heroes for Hire, once had a sword of such ancient design and came to me to identify it." He throws his hands in the air, "but alas, I have nothing in stock of that kind. If you're interested, I could perhaps design such a TW weapon, though I guarantee you it would be quite expensive as there's little chance that I could manage such a feat myself, but I find the indea intriguing!"

ROLLS HELD

John laughs, "I clearly don't know much about magic because I assumed this was problem people had already worked out. Well, if you want to put some kind of general idea for that kind of weapon together, I'm happy to listen. If it's a techno-wizard item, though it'll have to run off of drained 'life energy' like this light-blade. I'm not a mage."

He smiles. "I'll give you some time to think the problem over. If you come up with a solution, let me know along with how much you think it'll cost. Otherwise, I'll be in the market for a weapon with those capabilities if you run across one. Or things for giants. I know a guy."

"Either way, it was good meeting you!"

John waits for his reply, then heads out to the Roughnecks compound.

As James makes his way through the bustling Arms Bazaar his senses are on overload. Crowded places have always made him uncomfortable, "God damn shit, why the fuck am I here and why can't there be less people. I just want to get my shit and leave." Seeing the sign for "exotic arms", James ducks into the store as much to escape the street as to find what he was looking for. When he finds an employee his internal surliness becomes non existent as he speaks, "Hello there friend, this is a real gem of a shop. I'm glad I happened by it." James will decide on how to proceed with his small talk based on the employee reacts to him, talking more or less depending. Once the topic of what he's looking for comes up he will ask, "I had a friend I used to work with that used to use a real handy piece, got us out of a couple real touchy situations. It was a little pistol looking thing but had been all magic'ed up to make mechanical components not function. I think he called it a TW Jammer, you carry any of those here?"

As James makes his way through the bustling Arms Bazaar his senses are on overload. Crowded places have always made him uncomfortable, "God damn shit, why the fuck am I here and why can't there be less people. I just want to get my shit and leave." Seeing the sign for "exotic arms", James ducks into the store as much to escape the street as to find what he was looking for. When he finds an employee his internal surliness becomes non existent as he speaks, "Hello there friend, this is a real gem of a shop. I'm glad I happened by it." James will decide on how to proceed with his small talk based on the employee reacts to him, talking more or less depending. Once the topic of what he's looking for comes up he will ask, "I had a friend I used to work with that used to use a real handy piece, got us out of a couple real touchy situations. It was a little pistol looking thing but had been all magic'ed up to make mechanical components not function. I think he called it a TW Jammer, you carry any of those here?"


The D'Norr Devilman thoughtfully looks at you as he cradles his right elbow in his hand and taps on one of his horns with his right index finger. "Sounds mighty familiar, but who knows with them TW types naming the same damn thing a hundred different ways, or give the same damn name to a hundred different things! Sorry friend that I couldn't have been of more help. However, I would recommend going over to the Mystic Quarter and asking about. I'm sure someone there should be able to set you straight."

Yojimbo enters the Devilman's store after checking to see if it will support his weight. Satisfied that it will, he examines the wares, looking for any of Japanese make.

He is particularly interested in the Techno-Wizard weapons, and how they function, as Techno-Wizardry is all but unknown on Wormwood and in Japan.

Contingency
If Devilman or an associate asks how Yojimbo can be helped, he will reply by asking how "one of these devices" works, while pointing at a TW item (probably melee), because they look different and interesting to him. He will also comment on any legitimate Japanese melee weapons (not long arms)

As he enters the shop, Yojimbo notices all sorts of weapons. As he looks around, he does notice the spirit Daisho as well as a few random Japanese style vibro blades as a beautiful Zhanmadao blade.


Battle Fury Blade

The storekeeper watches as Yojimbo wanders the store. Seeing him stop in front of the blade, ”You have a fine eye.” he listens as Yojimbo asks his question about TW items. With a flourish and a bow, ”My name is Zo'Wor Kulot'te. I am a collector and retailer of exotic weapons, and I dabble in making them.” He turns and picks up the weapon. ”Please try it. I have space just here. I will try to explain as you regard the weapon.” He moves to the back of the shop.

As Yojimbo carefully follows, Zo’Wor continues. ”Techno-Wizardry, or TW as it is known. This is a fairly new type of magic. Hasn't been around long, maybe a couple of hundred years at the most. It is a mix of tech and magic, triggered by the user’s will.” He watches the giant with an approving eye. ”Try this one.” He holds a 2H katana out by the hilt. When Yojimbo touches it, he feels the magic in it. When he concentrates, the blade ignites in flame.

Yojimbo looks over the different weapons with admiration, and stops when he sees the Spirit Diasho. If one could read his emotions, one would feel turmoil inside of the armored giant, as the memories flood back, just as fresh as if they happened yesterday... memories of the ronin and the two beautiful children - three people that were very close, and very dear to Yojimbo - gone, in a flash. The giant looks down for a moment as he remembers what happened.

It happened so quickly... and they were gone so fast...

He snaps back to reality, forcing away the all-too-fresh pain and sense of loss our of his head, and moving on to the next piece, a real show stopper Zhanmadao blade.

"Hajimemashite, Zo'Wor Kulot'te" he says, while bowing politely. As before, if the Devilman looks confused or does not appear to know what Yojimbo said, he provides a helpful translation: "It is a pleasure to meet you." He then takes out an empty book (for writing or drawing), and begins scribbling in it, taking notes about everything the shopkeeper has said, and will say, for the foreseeable future.

He takes the sword from the shopkeeper and follows him to the back where there is room to "feel" the blade through handling.

Yojimbo tests the blade, going through a few moves, admiring the craftsmanship. "This is a very nice blade indeed. Well balanced and of fine craftsmanship. Thank you for allowing me to test it." he says to Zo'Wor, bowing, and then adds the notes about Techno-Wizardry to his book.

Ahh, now this - this may be just the item I need. Yojimbo marvels at the blade, being careful to avoid the flame, but fascinated nonetheless.

"A mix of technology and magic, you say? I see - even feel the magic, though I cannot say that I see the technology in this one. Is it miniaturized or hidden somehow?" he asks the proprietor.

Yojimo will also ask the D'norr what the prices of the Zhanmadao and Katana are, and write those down in his book as well. He will also ask the Devilman the costs of getting the weapons silver-plated, or if he knows of a place that will do the requested work.

Zo'Wor looks at Yojimbo with a slightly bewildered look. ”Well, my large friend. If you look at the hilt. * points* You will see some wires and precious stones. That is part of it. Anymore is a secret that is known to Techno-Wizards alone.” As they arrive at the practice area. Zo’Wor hands over the blade.

[qoute] Yojimbo will also ask the D'norr what the prices of the Zhanmadao and Katana are, and write those down in his book as well. He will also ask the Devilman the costs of getting the weapons silver-plated, or if he knows of a place that will do the requested work. [/quote]

Zo’Wor returns the blade to its stand. As Yojimbo asks about prices, Zo’Wor nods. ’Yes, the flaming blade is not always available, but that one is 90,000 credits.” He pauses as Yojimbo continues, then with a breathe. ”*Sigh* That particular sword is not for sale, well not to just anybody. The person wanting it must be of good heart, strong will, and above all, the sword must agree. The material cost is 13 million credit, non-negotiable.” He stands quietly as Yojimbo writes in his book. After a few moments, Zo'Wor snaps his fingers as his eyes go wide. "Try Arms of Yore!! I know that they may have what you are looking for, or at least, they can craft it. The dwarves do good work.".

The metallic monstrosity nods. "Ahh, I see. I had misunderstood you before. Your explanation is much appreciated."

I will remember this. Techno-Wizardry combines elements of technology and powers them with magic. He tries to wrap his head around the ideas, but is baffled as to how it all works. Perhaps what the horned gentleman said is correct - only the Techno-Wizards really understand how it all works.

Yojimbo writes down the information in his notebook carefully.

Spirit Zhanmandao diasho - 13 million credits, and wielder must be pure, strong of heart, and sword must bind willingly. Large flaming Katana - 90,000 credits. Hmm... he muses, remembering his current credit balance - zero.

It would seem I have some saving to do for these items. Perhaps I will visit these dwarves he mentioned and see this 'Arms of Yore' next.

"Dōmo arigatōgozaimashita*, Zo'Wor Kulot'te."

Anthropology (to determine the proper way to excuse himself without offending the store owner) -->1d100 = 88 / 42%
Calligraphy (to successfully draw the characters) --> 1d100 = 31 / 47%


Certain he will offend the store owner if he leaves at this point, he then takes out a small piece of paper and his brush, dips it in some ink, and draws the characters for "devil" and "man" on it.

After drawing them and, satisfied they are correct in meaning, beauty, and simplicity, he puts the brush and ink away, and hands the paper to Zo'Wor.

Hoping the offense will be forgiven, he opts to excuse himself properly in the most polite way he can think of to convey it: "Shitsurei shimasu!**" he says, again translating if there is confusion, before following up with "Your hospitality will not be forgotten. I hope our paths cross again... perhaps, when I am more able to entertain a purchase of your fine wares."

He then bows politely, several times, as if to beg forgiveness for being so rude to the proprietor of Devilman Exotic Arms, hands him the paper with the characters drawn on it as restitution for the offense of leaving so rudely, and walks out the door to seek Arms of Yore.

Translations
*=Thank you very much
**=A formal way of taking one's leave from a superior or stranger, this saying conveys the idea of "please excuse me for leaving you" or "please excuse me for being the first to leave"

Zo’Wor smiles. ”You are the kind of customer i enjoy. Polite, respectful of property and a willingness to learn is rare. For that I thank you.” He adds a bow of respect as he speaks. Zo stands there watching as the giant uses a gentle hand to scribble in his notebook. He continues standing there in silence and mild amazement As the giant pulls out ink and brush and starts to draw.

There is a silence that seems to hang for a moment. ”It was my honor to have you in my humble store. Please return at anytime.” He hands Yojimbo a small business card. He then watches as the giant bows several times in rapid succession. Finally, Zo’Wor places his hand gently on the big man's shoulder. As Yojimbo stands straight the “note” as it were was in his hand. Zo’Wor accepts it reverently with both hands. ”I will treasure this. Thank you.” He returns to his duties as Yojimbo leaves.
