This quest where you gotta help a Pizza deliver guy deliver a pizza in 30 updates, or less… Or sabotage his efforts!

________________________________________________

Message from PEA: This quest is mainly created to help kick me outta my long hiatus and gain the motivation to get back into making my main quest Enclosed Curtains again. With that in mind, this quest will very stupid, so plz don’t take this quest seriously. Just enjoy the journey and don’t worry about the destination. The art style might change as I want to also use the quest to practice my art skills and experiment with new art styles and find out what I’m most comfortable with. I will try to update once every few days but once a week the latest will try to be the requirement. I have a rough work schedule, so plz bear with me.

The quest will be cut into 3 sections, a prologue, the 30 update countdown, and then an epilogue. Right now, we’ll be going through the prologue before we start the countdown. Sometime before we begin the countdown, I will explain the rules. But as of now, the prologue will just introduce characters and this world, and getting yourselves prepared for the pizza guy’s next delivery.

ANTEATER: 30 Updates. 30 looooong fuckin’ updates. That’s all it takes, and yet you got here in 50 updates… you do realize I’m not paying for these now, right?
ANTEATER: Seriously, if I knew you were this INCOMPETANT, and IRRESPONSIBLE, I would have just walked… Not run, or drive mind you, but WALKED to pick up my pizza and back.
ANTEATER: And that goes without sayin’ how out of fuckin’ shape I am too!
ANTEATER: But noooooooo… I had to use common sense and call your sorry ass over here to deliver our pizza so I can tend to my daughter’s needs to keep her happy on her birthday.
ANTEATER: But just listen to that…


The Anteater points behind him towards the other room in his apartment with his thumb.

ANTEATER: Because of your lollygagging, I now have to deal with a crying starving daughter and her friends throwing things in a tantrum because our meal did not arrive when it was supposed to.

The sounds of screaming laughter, and bangs from what sounds like a videogame can be heard from the other room.

ANTEATER: This was supposed to be a simple and memorable birthday for my daughter, the daughter I can only see on weekends before she has to go back to my bitchy ex-wife.
ANTEATER: And now I have to deal with the consequences of your incompetence.
ANTEATER: And don’t think I won’t be calling your boss about this. Irresponsible DEADBEATS like you don’t deserve to keep their job.
ANTEATER: You’ve single handedly ruined an innocent girl’s birthday. Fuck you. Now get outta my sight!

Great job, a few of you guessed his name right. I’m impressed!

This dude’s name is Geraldo Le Booshki, but most people just call him Jerry. He is at the age of 26 and has been working at a draining dead end job as a pizza delivery man at his uncle Ricardo’s restaurant :pizzid: in the heart of Crust City for about a year now.

Jerry hates his job so much. He is overworked by his uncle rushing and pushing him while berating him for not being a “team player”. He also has to deal with an annoying smug coworker that makes him feel inferior, and Crust City is a pretty crazy and dangerous place to be delivering pizza in. The torment is enough for Jerry to despise pizza altogether… well, okay, that’s not entirely true, he actually loves the taste of pizza, and :pizzid: is actually the best tasting pizza he’s ever had as much as he hates to admit, but his experience working at :pizzid: had made him grow to despise pizza out of principal and swear off eating pizza altogether.

Why doesn’t he quit? Well, it’s because there are no other jobs out there willing to pay enough to move out of his uncle’s home and make a living, especially with his crippling student loans to worry about.

When he was a little younger, he took acting classes at Crust City’s art college in hopes to become a movie star and relive his acting career when he was a forgotten child actor (most known for his role as Smoky Goldtooth in a terrible movie… that is, if anyone remembers that movie… what was it called again? Even Jerry forgot.) He has wasted the last four years chasing that dead dream looking for jobs in acting since college and his father Heraldo finally got fed up. So in an attempt to get Jerry to find a “real job” and stop being “lazy”, Heraldo kicked Jerry out, and forced him to move to live with his uncle Ricardo in order to work for his famous :pizzid: restaurant.

As Jerry is about to head out, he hears the anteater through the door yelling “HEY, WHO WANTS FREE PIZZA?! followed by the sounds of cheers. Probably said that loud enough to make sure Jerry heard as insult to injury, especially since he put so much emphasis on the word free pizza. Jerry just sighs, shrugs, and leaves the apartment building.

As he drives back on his moped to the :pizzid: restaurant, he begins brainstorming an excuse for his uncle as to why he was so late with this pizza delivery. But what could he use as an excuse?

It was rush hour? No, that doesn’t begin until another few updates…

Construction or police road blocks? But what if his uncle decides to check after work or call someone to confirm his excuse?

Whatever excuse he needs to come up with, he knows it has to be really really good, because he’s been late with pizza deliveries more often than he should in the past, and usually it’s due to unbelievable reasons, so he has to think of more tame fictional excuses that sound more believable than what actually happened during his pizza routes.

1014783

And just his luck, he made it back to :pizzid: in just one update. Why couldn’t he get that luck when delivering that pizza earlier? Jerry curses his luck and plot convenience...

He parks the moped and after he removes his helmet and faces the :pizzid: building, and groans as he sees who’s at the entrance.

It’s his smug coworker GERBERA, dancing in the popular :pizzid: mascot “THE ZA” costume. Why are they here already? Wasn’t they supposed to have some kind of long important interview with uncle Ricardo about something? Jerry was hoping he would be able to get back before that interview ended.

Gerbera is :pizzid:’s newest hire who started 6 months ago after the previous worker and Jerry’s best friend ANTONIO DEVARARA got involved in a FATAL PROBLEM. Jerry really doesn’t like talking to Gerbera, as Gerbera is always talking about themself, how great their life is, their accomplishments, able to handle anything life throws at them, and often makes Jerry’s uncle Ricardo proud of them. Jerry sometimes feels that Gerbera is actively trying to make him feel inferior.

Jerry notices that Gerbera is dancing a little more enthusiastic than normal. He wonders what that is about, but then again, he also wonders how Gerbera is able to dance at all in such a ridiculous humiliating stuffy hot suit with hecklers throwing stuff at them from time to time. He also has a bad feeling if he asks Gerbera about why their so happy today

Regardless, that’s none of his business. He needs to figure out this SITUATION on how he can enter the :pizzid: building to see his uncle without Gerbera noticing and causing a PROBLEM and wasting an UPDATE.

TUTORIEL TIME!
-In this quest during the countdown section, in almost all updates Jerry will encounter a SITUATION.
-During that SITUATION, suggestors can either vote to HELP Jerry out of the SITUATION, and suggest how he can get out of the situation, or suggestors can vote to SABOTAGE the situation, and suggest how he’ll be SABOTAGED.
-Even if you cast your vote to HELP Jerry, you are allowed also suggest an idea to SABOTAGE, just in case your HELP vote did not win (though it will not be counted as a SABOTAGE vote).
- likewise, even if you cast your vote to SABOTAGE Jerry, you can also suggest an idea on how to HELP Jerry in case your SABOTAGE vote did not win (though it will not be counted as a HELP vote).
-You cannot suggest an idea on how to kill Jerry unless otherwise stated
-after enough time have passed, I will tally up the votes and add those numbers to two 3-sided dices, one dice for HELPING Jerry, and another for SABOTAGING Jerry. The dice with the highest number, wins.
- for example, if HELP gets 5 votes, and SABOTAGE gets 3, I will roll a D3 + 5votes for Help, and roll a D3 + 3votes for SABOTAGE, and the highest number will determine if Jerry gets out of a SITUATION, or if the SITUATION becomes a PROBLEM, and will pick suggestors’ ideas as to how Jerry will get out of the SITUATION, or how he ends up in a PROBLEM
- When SABOTAGE ins, the SITUATION becomes a PROBLEM. When this occurs, Jerry will have to waste one update trying to get out of the PROBLEM.
- Sometimes, another SITUATION can occur while Jerry is having a PROBLEM, in which another vote will occur where he can escape the PROBLEM and continue on his way to his destination, or have another UPDATE wasted.


With that out of the way, please vote whether or not you want to HELP Jerry find a way to enter the :pizzid: building without Gerbera noticing him, or SABOTAGE Jerry’s efforts and have Gerbera spot him. Also, suggest how Jerry gets past and/or gets spotted by Gerbera. Be as creative as you can!

ALSO, you should probably start thinking of a very good excuse to Jerry’s uncle. Just sayin’

Clearly Jerry must parkour from the scooter to the top of the adjacent building, then enter via rooftop.

Why try to avoid your coworker, say hell to him but also say that you are in a hurry but would gladly hang with him after your shift is over. If he is adamant about wasting your time and is really persistent on it then just do the three-step process, step one tell him I warned you, step two remove his glasses, and finally step three curb stomp his smug smile. The enjoyment of the three-step process is left up to your discretion.

No. 1014790 ID: 629f2e

We're not on an order yes, so let's SABOTAGE Jerry's efforts.

Gerbara notices him, but due to sunlight reflecting off his shades she doesn't realize it's Jerry. So, treating him like any other customer, she gives the customary greeting of a hug and telling him to taste their pizza while he's being pressed into the pizza costume (Naturally, the pizza costume is made of the same ingredients their normal meals are, why wouldn't it be?).

>Student loans.
Oof, that's rough buddy.

I'm tempted to both HELP and SABOTAGE in this situation.

I imagine Jerry has cultivated a bit of a grim, standoffish aura, working a deadend job that gets you constantly yelled at. So cranking that up to eleven would exude big "don't talk to me" energy.

>>1014790
Unfortunately Gerebara can't see that due to the aforementioned sun, and Jerry can't get away since the door to the :pizzid: building has one of those really annoying handles that makes it really hard to tell if it's a PUSH or a PULL door. (It's probably a fire/safety hazard.)

Sabotaging this shit.

Nothing happens with Gerbera, however; as Jerry is about to walk inside two black sedans whip around the corner, people in suits lean out the windows with submachine guns, with the one in front screaming
"Luigi Capatolli sends his regards! Rattle 'em boys!"
Following that, the men open up, absolutely devastating the frontage of the store. Both Jerry and Gerb hit the deck and get covered in glass and debris, but the men were trying to send a message, not (deliberately) kill people, so they weren't shot directly at.

rolled 2, 6 = 8

PATCH UPDATE!
Just a small one, I think instead of rolling a 3 sided dice, I'll roll six sided dice. Afterwards, I'll add in the number of votes from HELP and SABOTAGE. I figure it might make things more interesting. If it doesn't work well, and if there are complaints, I'll rework it.

____________________________________________

Message from PEA: OKAY, so I counted six votes for HELP and four votes for SABOTAGE.

Once the six sided dices are rolled, I will add the votes to the results. the first dice will be HELP, the second dice will be SABOTAGE

No. 1014897 ID: e51896

Message from PEA: And SABOTAGE WINS this time with 8 HELP POINTS < 10 SABOTAGE POINTS. The votes are locked in and you can no longer vote, BUT you can still suggest ideas on what will happen. If you previously suggested an idea for how Jerry gets HELP, you can still suggest an idea for how Jerry gets SABOTAGED with how Gerbera spots Jerry, and I'll pick one with the most votes, and/or whichever is most interesting and zany

I'll try to get the update done this weekend

SABOTAGE!
>wait for the sun to go down, when Gerbera’s shift ends

Jerry would love to just use an UPDATE to wait it out, but that would mean that his shift would end too, and then he’ll probably get into bigger trouble with his uncle for missing future pizza delivery calls, and then it would risk the quest ending too early, and we wouldn’t want that to happen… do we?

>Completely ignore Gerbera

Jerry keeps his head towards the goal, trying not to make eye contact with Gerbera and choosing to not respond to anything that they say.

Jerry puts his hand on the door handle, and attempts to push it open… but it won’t budge as he forgot it was a door he had to pull instead of push. The stress must have caused him to forget, as he was hoping that pushing would get him in the building faster.

Meanwhile, Gerbera hears the sound of Jerry’s poor attempt at opening doors and turns to see who it is. Jerry’s sunglasses is casting a large glare from the bright sun covering his face, and causing Gerbera to not notice who it is, but they assume it’s a customer.

GERBERA: Hey there!

Ah nuts, Gerbera spotted Jerry. He attempts to push the door open again in a panic, but his nerves is making him forget again that it’s a door he has to pull. He fumbles to open the door until finally pulling it open slightly, when suddenly, his body suddenly feels a lot more tighter and constricted.

Oh no! Gerbera has gone for the offensive and has put Jerry into a submissive holding bear hug! Jerry can’t breathe and thinks he felt something crack... and feels a little bit slimy from the cheese of the costume.

GERBERA: Welcome to :pizzid: ! thank you so much for coming!

Jerry attempts to explain to Gerbera he isn’t a customer, but all that can come out of his lungs are coughs and barely a wheeze of a whisper

GERBERA: I’m THE ZA! World famous :pizzid: mascot, and we love it when you come to eat my species!


Gerbera finally let’s go of Jerry


GERBERA: Please try our new BBQ Blob pizza! Made with, cheese, bacon, sausage, onions and a lot of spicy BBQ sauce!


Jerry not taking in Gerbera’s words adjusts his sunglasses, crooked from the hug, and catches his breath.

with the glare vanishing from Jerry fixing his sunglasses, Gerbera lets out a playful gasp


[b]GERBERA: Wait, you’re not a customer, your Jerry! Hah hah hah!

As he mumbles and grumbles, Jerry is about to grab the door again, but Gerbera grabs Jerry’s arm with his leafy arms

GERBERA: Hey, guess what, some amazing news just happened to me!

Jerry sighs and shrugs as he reluctantly asks what happened.

GERBERA: Go on... guess!

Jerry, defeated decides to play along, and asks if their so-called admirer SNOWPEA the bumblebee is finally dating them.

GERBERA: Nooooooo, but it might happen soon after she hears the good news!

Jerry asks if Gerbera found a new job somewhere far, far away from CRUST CITY, with a bit of hope in his voice.

GERBERA: Nuh uh, but you’re cloooooooose!

Jerry, figuring he’s satisfied Gerbera’s guessing game long enough, and proving Gerbera’s superiority over him, finally admits he gives up, and asks what the news is, hoping Gerbera can finally get to the point and he can go into the building

Gerbera steps closer to Jerry, and whispers.

GERBERA: Now keep this on the down low, but I was just recently promoted to deliver pizza starting tomorrow! Isn’t that great!

Jerry responds with a slow clap, as he rolls his eyes behind the shades.

GERBERA: Thanks Jerry! Man, oh man, I’m so excited about this. I worked so very hard to attempt to climb my way up the corporate ladder, and the boss has finally acknowledged my efforts!
GERBERA: Though… I wonder… if I’m going to be delivering pizzas now, then… who is going to wear THE ZA costume and attract customers… hmmmmmmm…


Jerry has a sinking feeling as to what that statement could pertain. But snaps out of it as he has a more important thing to deal with, thinking of an excuse to tell his uncle. Sadly, he wasn’t able to talk to his uncle this update, but he believes that the PROBLEM with Gerbera wasting his time can be easily dealt with by the next update, and can enter the building by then.

How does Jerry leave Gerbera? (please note this is not a sabotage, or help, just explain how he tactically ends the conversation and gets out of this PROBLEM, be creative)

ALSO, what excuse does he have for his uncle for being so late with his latest delivery? Please think of an excuse for Jerry to tell his uncle, and explain what actually happened during his delivery if his excuse is a lie

No. 1015203 ID: afe7de

He points behind Gerbera and says that there's a real customer there (it turns out there totally is!) and you open the door, escaping inside.

As for excuses, well he can't explain that he was actually isekaid into another world of plush characters and got to participate in a sort of election that he won and used his powers of winning to get back only to deliver the pizza late. He bemoans how they only ate candy and paper meat but the paper meat was kind of like tofu and full of protein so he couldn't complain.

So instead he just says that a guy asked him out on a date and he lost track of time because you like wish fulfulment lies.

How to gracefully get away from Gerb: Point at random passers-by in the street and suggest Gerb rank all of them, from 1 to 5, for five minutes for suitable successors so Gerb can choose a WORTHY SUCCESSOR.

As for the excuse, tell a half-truth: the customers were difficult, and they wanted to take extra time to complain about how terrible their lives were.

No. 1015209 ID: 629f2e

Escape Gerbara by letting out a puff of cigarette smoke at their glasses. When they takes them off to wipe them down, silently slip into the restaurant. Perfect getaway.

You don't think your boss will buy that you got wrongly profiled as a murder suspect, and that you had to investigate and defend yourself in court because nobody else was foolish enough to stand trial against Prosecutor Purr Feckt and her perfect trial record. Thankfully you got off on mistrial, because apparently the best prosecutor in the country doesn't understand discovery law, and how the defense needs to be aware of what evidence and witnesses will be present at a hearing.

Shift the blame. You were given the wrong address, because the customer had apparently moved recently and gave you the home he used to live at. If anything, you should be lauded for wrangling the new address out of his previous neighbors and getting them their pizza.

Saying Jerry has had his fill of Gerbera is an understatement, just spending one update talking with them makes him feel bloated, and he thinks another update with the smug flower will make him burst. So, Jerry chooses to use the ol’ “Made Ya Look!” tactic.

He tells Gerbera that seeing as they will be working as a delivery flower tomorrow, a WORTHY SUCCESSOR must be found to take their place to act as “THE ZA” Immediately.

GERBERA: Ohhhhhhh, Great idea! But how do I decide?

As Jerry puts his hand on the door, pushing it but forgetting to pull it again, he suggests that Gerbera for the next five minutes rank all the random passer-bys they find from 1 to 5 as suitable successors, then from there decide who is most worthy enough to become “THE ZA”.

Jerry then suggests they should start with the customer that is walking towards them, pointing behind Gerbera without looking as he eyes the door.

Turns out, there really was a customer heading towards them! It seems to be a sentient blob made of custard of some sort slithering it’s way over.

GERBERA: OH! Welcome to :pizzid:! thank you so much for coming!
GERBERA: I’m THE ZA! World famous :pizzid: mascot, and we love it when you come to eat my species!
CUSTARD BLOB: *slurp*
GERBERA: Say, can I get your name, sir?
CUSTARD BLOB: …Mer…
GERBERA: Mer, got it. And what will your order be?
MER: Deep dish pizza… lots of sauce… to bathe in…
GERBERA: Oooooh! Custard pizza! we’ll get your order ready in 30 updates…
MER: *Happy slurpy sounds*
GERBERA: Hey, wait a minute, I just realized, haha! Get this!
GERBERA: You’re a custard, and your name is Mer, and you’re ordering from us. I guess you could say that you’re a… CUSTARDM-


Figuring out he needs to pull the door, Jerry quickly enters the building and slams the door shut to save himself from cringing over the stupidest pun ever.

The steamy aroma of tasty pizza wafts through Jerry’s nose upon entering, reminding him his hatred of pizza despite wanting to grab a slice. Jerry’s eyes then trail over to uncle Ricardo leaning his arm on the receptionist counter, quickly drumming his fingers rhythmically as he gives Jerry the familiar tired look of disappointment.

RICARDO: WellJerry,you’elate.That’stheseventhtimeinarow!Andfrankly,I’vehadenoughofit.

Ricardo tends to speak really fast, saying everything he needs to say after only one breath. It’s quite hard to keep up with what he says with how fast he speaks, but Jerry has gotten used to it. He thinks Ricardo said something about how the customer called to complain about Jerry being late, and it’s the seventh time in a row he’s late.


Wanting to get his uncle’s complaints over with, Jerry quickly thinks up an excuse. He can’t tell Ricardo what actually happened during his delivery as it was unbelievable.

I mean, seriously, who is going to believe that Jerry was arrested by the “great” P.I. ZZANDER for attempted murder by trying to “forcefully” deliver a pizza to someone who has severe food allergy to the toppings (all because the address Jerry was given was wrong), then had to sit in trial and defend himself against Prosecutor PURR FECKT the cat since no defense attorney in their right mind would fight against her perfect record, and then as punishment after being found guilty became imprisoned in another quest full of plushies called STUFFIES and had to win a weird popularity election which he needed to win if he wanted to gain a magic power to escape by teaching the STUFFIES how to make a COOKIE PIZZA?

Instead, he explains to his uncle that the customer was being rude, and he had to take one for the team by putting up with him talking about his terrible life.

Uncle Ricardo just slowly facepalms and rubs his fingers upon his temple, with a frustrated sigh.

RICARDO: Thatstilldoesn’texplainwhyyouwerelatedeliveringthecutomer’spizza!
RICARDO: Thecustomercalledtocomplainaboutit!


Oh right, that may explain why Jerry was late getting back to the restaurant, but he was still late with the customer’s order, and wasn’t paid for the delivery because of it. Jerry attempts to explain again by telling his uncle that the address was wrong as it was the customer’s old address, but should at least be given credit for finding out where the new address was at from the current residence there.

Ricardo looks at the address from the computer and groans.

RICARDO: Letmeguess…youreadtheaddressupside-down,
RICARDO: AndwenttotheOLIUOIUOLEE,1addressinsteadof1337Onion,170…didn’tyou?


Jerry is confused by what Ricardo just said... Did He really looked at the address he was given by his uncle upside-down before he started this delivery? He pulls out the notebook paper he was given earlier from his HAMMERSPACIAL DIMENSION and reads that indeed, the address he was given was 1337 Onion, 170… not OLI UOIUO LEE, 1… whoops. Why in the world is there even a street called OLI UOIUO LEE on the GPS in the first place?! what kind of word is UOIUO anyways?!?!?

Jerry tries to apologize for this honest mistake, but Ricardo disappointment lingers.

RICARDO: Youknow,partofhavingresponsibilitymeanshavingcommonsense.
RICARDO: Forinstance,whywouldIwritetheaddressonanotebookpaperthatisupside-down?
RICARDO: Yougottauseyourhead…Well,itdoesn’tmatteranyway.


As Ricardo complains about Jerry’s lack of common sense and responsibilities, one thing Jerry notices is that Ricardo isn’t as angry as he usually is when he screws up a delivery, and it gives him some bad vibes as to what this could mean. Something must be up, so he decides to ask why he isn’t as angry about this.

RICARDO: Well,it’sbecauseIthoughtofasimplesolutiontofinallygetyoutolearnresponsibility.
RICARDO: Listen,normallyIwouldhavefiredyourassbynow,
RICARDO: Butbecauseyou’remybrother’sson,yourfatherwouldbedeeplyupsetwithmeifIdidthat.
RICARDO: SoIthoughtofanalternative:IwillinsteadbeswitchingyourpositiontomascotdutystartingTOMORROW
RICARDO: Youwillbeinchargeofwearing“THEZA”Costumeandattractcustomersinfrontofthebuilding
RICARDO: Meanwhile,Gerberawillbeswitchingwithyoutoworkindelivery!
RICARDO: Thatlittleflowerhasproventhemselfwiththeirdedicationtoearnthatposition
RICARDO: andIfindnoreasonwhyIshouldletyoucontinueholdingdeliveryresponsibilityifyoucan’tmakedeliveriesontime.


OH FUCK! From what Jerry understood, he’s getting demoted to Gerbera’s job to wear a heavy hot costume all day and dance in the hot sun?! He cannot let that happen. Not only wearing “THE ZA” mascot costume will leave him tired and burnt out, but it’s also going to be humiliating. He remembers that Gerbera would often get taunted and litter thrown at them by delinquents. And since there is a giant hole in the costume where one would put their face through, everyone will know that he is wearing the humiliating costume without any way to hide his identity.

Jerry tries to beg and plea to not let this happen as he cannot let his reputation as "THE COOL GUY" diminish. He explains that he’s given it his all out there, but PROBLEMS keep messing him up

RICARDO: GettingdistractedbyyourstonerbuddiesisNOTaproblem.That’sjustalackoffocus…
RICARDO: You'realwaysmakingexcusesthattheybecomemeaningless...


Jerry is offended, he doesn’t get distracted by his stoner friends, he’s merely just spending a small amount of time with them to relive stress during the hectic work he does.

Ricardo thinks for a bit, and after seeing Jerry still genuinely begging him not to demote him, he gives a nod.

RICARDO: Hmm…maybethisiswhatyouneededtogetyourassingear…
RICARDO: Learningtheconsequencesfornotbeingateamplayer…
RICARDO: Alright,TellyouwhatJerry,beforeyourshiftends,ifyoucanshowmethatyoucandeliveryournextpizzasuccessfully
RICARDO: I’llallowyoutocontinuedeliveringpizzas.
RICARDO: ButthiswillbeyourLASTchance…


Jerry breathes a sigh of relief; it seems like Ricardo will give him one more chance to deliver a pizza successfully if he wants to avoid wearing “THE ZA” coustume. Ricardo is hoping that after Jerry learned the consequences of failure, he’ll be more dedicated to get the job done, and show actual responsibility to his job.

RICARDO: Thoughhonestly,Idon’tseewhyyou’recomplaining,didn’tyouwanttobeanactor?
RICARDO: Playingasamascotformewouldbegoodpracticeforthatcareerpathandgetyournameoutthere,
Ricardo: wouldn’tit?


Frustrated, Jerry argues that dancing around in a mascot costume is NOT acting, that’s just making a fool out of oneself and will no way help his dream in becoming an actor.

RICARDO: Idon’tseethedifference…

Before the argument can continue, the phone rings… most likely a customer wanting to have a pizza delivered to them.

This is it! Jerry’s chance to prove himself he is capable at his job.

[i][b]THE PHONE IS RINGING, someone should probably go answer that… but first, can you guys suggesting do me a favor and please explain who is calling on the other end with a little bit of CHARACTER CREATION?

Please give a description of who the customer is by filling out the following:

NAME:
SPECIES:
GENDER:
PERSONALITY:
DESCRIPTION OF APPEARANCE:
OCCUPATION:
(OPTIONALLY, you can also draw a picture of what the character looks like!)


Also, please explain the LOCATION of where they are calling from. It could be anywhere you want as long as it is within Crust City. Just do not suggest the location is close by or far away (like saying it is right next door to the :pizzid: restaurant, or in outer space or something. Can’t have the quest end too early, and keep this fair.

Meanwhile, about 5 minutes earlier, which for some reason is also one update later as well (wrap your head around that, eggheads), a GIRL’S NIGHT OUT WITH A PUMPKIN PARTY is in full swing (during the day). It’s a celebration of getting through another year of college and welcoming the beginning of summer break within a dorm room!

3 young women and a pumpkin are spinning one of the empty beer bottles on the floor as they are gathered in a circle around it, sitting in anticipation for where the beer bottle will stop and point at. Shortly after it revolves a few times, a geeky bnuuy nervously gasps as it stops to point at her.

???: AW SHIT, looks like the new girl Rachael is the victim this turn!
RACHAEL: Uh, umm… I… errr… I… I suppose I am…
???: Hey, Charisse! Don’t be so intense with how you talk to my friend. it’s her first time at one of these get togethers… Rachael, are you alright?


Rachael looks at her friend speaking out to her, a squirrel name Kaia, and she gains a bit of comfort from seeing the concern on her face.

RACHAEL: F… fine. I’ll be fine… I MEAN, I AM fine! IAMFINE!!!

Kaia puts her hand on Rachael’s shoulder, lowering her tenseness

KAIA: Heeeey, it’s alright Rachael, you don’t have to play this game. If you want, we can exit this party and go somewhere else to celebrate, like a movie, bowling, or just chill back at our dorm room and show off yo-

Kaia catches herself and stops before she reveals something she wasn’t supposed to, which Charisse the kangaroo tilts her head at.

CHARISSE: Reveal… what exactly?
KAIA: errrrrr… her collection of… comic books! She likes to read them with me.
CHARISSE: Pffft… Who still reads comic books these days?
RACHAEL: I-I-I’m cool, I don’t read comic books… NO WAIT, I DO! I DO! AND DEFINITELY NOT HIDING SOMETHING ELSE, HAHAHAHAH!


Charisse raises an eyebrow at this, and is thoughtful for a brief moment before Kaia speaks up.

KAIA: HEY! I happen to like reading comic books too!
PUMPKIN: Do mangas count as comics? Cause I’m guilty of that too.
CHARISSE: Awww, Jackie, you as well?
KAIA: The pumpkin has spoken!


Rachael takes a deep breath, and calms herself

RACHAEL: Sorry, I’m alright… it was my decision to join this game with you all, and I… I’ll stick to it to the bitter end!
CHARISSE: …Forget it, just… lets just spin the bottle again and see who’s turn it’s going to be to question the victim.

The bottle spins again. Rachael crosses her fingers hoping it will land on her best friend Kaia since she trusts her to not make her say or do anything too humiliating.

Unfortunately, it lands on Charisse the kangaroo.

CHARISSE: AWWW YEAH BITCHES! My turn!
JACKIE: *sigh* I wanted it to be my turn…
KAIA: Now Charisse, remember to go easy on Rachael, we’re trying to build her confidence up, remember?
CHARISSE:: Yeah, yeah… Okay, Rachael, TRUTH, OR DARE?


Rachael takes a moment to think of her options.

Rachael was a Junior in Crust City’s art college MARINATION UNIVERSITY, about to become a senior this upcoming semester. She is majoring in animation, as cartoons are her passion.
She is however a nervous introvert who often has trouble expressing herself, but has recently decided that she wants to come out of her shell before her college years are over and form connections with new friends, and not waste the last year of college hiding away in her dorm. Her best friend and dorm-mate, Kaia, agreed to help by bringing Rachael to meet her group of friends to help the bnuuy become more confident in herself, and make new friends at one of their end of the semester parties.

She figures that since these girls don’t know her well, they might not know well enough to ask her for specific secrets they picked up on that she’d be forced to reveal. So she makes her decision.

RACHAEL: Umm… okay, TRUTH!
CHARISSE: OKAY! I’m super curious to know… What is it you like to show off to your friend Kaia?


EXCEPT THAT! Rachael tenses up over the question, which immediately follows by a retort from Kaia.

KAIA: Hey… we just established it was her comic book collection, remember?
CHARISSE: Come on, cut the bullcrap. It’s super obvious by your hesitation earlier, and Rachael correcting herself that you’re both hiding something… so tell me what it is!?
JACKIE: Probably something lewd…
KAIA: Huh? What was that, Jackie?
JACKIE: … Probably some veggie food…
CHARISSE: Hey, what’s so embarrassing about veggies?
JACKIE: As a pumpkin from the plant species, I find certain vegetables to be very alluring if you know what I mean…
JACKIE: If you want to know more, try asking when the bottle chooses me!


Defeated, Kaia looks over at Rachael.

KAIA: Sorry Rachael…

Jackie raises her arm for attention

JACKIE: you know… She could still choose the dare option if she can’t handle the truth…
CHARISSE: WHAT?! Come oooooon, Jackie. Why you gotta bring that up! She has a dark secret just waiting to be unveiled! We gotta know what it is!
JACKIE: Truths are boring tho…
KAIA: *Ahem* Charisse, you’re overdoing it. Remember, we’re trying to go easy on Rachael and build her confidence.
CHARISSE: overdoing it? Fine, fine…

Rachael at all costs cannot let anybody know about her creepy obsession with CRUST CITY’S very own famous movie actor and successful farmer of all pizza toppings: STEPHAN STUFFLE. She has a hidden room in her dorm that displays a large shrine and statue of the hunk, as well as a huge collection of his movies, and a collection of one of each topping he grows from his farm all which she keeps in a freezer and locked in a safe to keep from expiring for as long as possible. If these potential new friends knew of her shrine, and her obsession, she thinks it is highly likely that they will see her as an insane creep. So, without another second wasted, she gives her new answer.

RACHAEL: D-DARE!
CHARISSE: Ugh… fiiiine. But there will be consequences. For your dare, you have to order a pizza, and then afterwards, receive the pizza from the deliver man… COMPLETELY NAKED!
Jackie: Oh… wow!


Rachael is shocked from the sound of that dare. Is Charisse crazy?! She can’t do something like that, it’s way too perverted and completely out of her character…
But then again… can she? Thinking further, she considers the alternative and how she must not let anyone know about her shrine at all costs. and just thinking of the thrill of the dare does make her heart beat faster, which feels kinda… amazing? WHAT? no! Rachael tries to discard such thoughts. She’s no exhibitionist!

Kaia glares at Charisse.

KAIA: WHAT!? Charisse, I’ve had enough. I’ve asked you twice to go easy on Rachael and you’re just making things worse for her!
CHARISSE: But I did make it easier, that truth option is now looking like an easier choice, doesn’t it? Now she’s sure to have more confidence in choosing that instead of my outrageous dare!
KAIA: YOU’RE MISSING THE POINT! Ugh… Rachael, I’m sorry so about this, let’s just go back home.
CHARISSE: Awwww, you told me how much you were looking forward to this party half the previous semester, Kaia. And now you’re leaving? Laaaaaaaaame.
KAIA: …Sorry, but my best friend Rachael comes first
CHARISSE: I mean, I don’t know what the big deal is, we’ve done a lot more embarrassing truths or dares in previous parties, like streaking through the dorm halls, eating weird stuff
CHARISSE: Or revealing search histories.
CHARISSE: Plus, whether it is a dare or a truth, it’s not like we’re going to take pictures or tell anyone, that’s like… breaking the code of conduct of GIRLS NIGHT OUT!
JACKIE:…
JACKIE:…*ahem*
CHARISSE:Oh yeah! WITH A PUMPKIN… sorry about that.
JACKIE: Hey, not taking sides here, But, what if the pizza deliverer takes pictures? What if they start spreading rumors about Rachael?
CHARISSE: Then we obviously threaten to get them fired by calling their boss! and if that don’t work, we beat the shit outta them and destroy their phone! Us kangaroos have a pretty nasty deadly kick after all!
CHARISSE: But still, the dare is pretty risky… which is why I’d recommend going with the truth option!


Kaia gets up from the floor and grabs Rachael’s arm

KAIA: No. We’re out. We’ll talk and plan another GIRLS NIGHT OUT WITH A PUMPKIN sometime tomorrow, but right now, I need to care for my friend’s feelings. Laters…

Rachael pulls her arm away from Kaia, surprising her.

RACHAEL: It’s… it’s fine Kaia.
KAIA: What? Rachael, are you sure? You don’t have to put up with Charisse’s bullshit.
RACHAEL: But… ummm… I know I’m scared b-but, I don’t want to ruin this party that you were looking forward to on my account by leaving with me.
RACHAEL: And… well, I also asked to come to this party to build confidence… so…
KAIA: …Are you absolutely sure about this?
RACHAEL: I mean, umm… uh… you’ve been through some more e-embarrassing truths or dares than me, right?
KAIA: I, uh… I guess that’s true, but…
RACHAEL: Then d-despite my fears… I’m staying


Rachael couldn’t believe what came out of her mouth. Was she really doing this to build confidence? Or was it because she didn’t want to disappoint her best friend by having her miss this party with her? Or maybe it’s… something else? Nononono, it’s definitely the first two.

CHARISSE: Alright then, so tell us… what are you and Kaia hiding?
RACHAEL: I… uhhh… ummm… I n-never said anything about choosing Truth.
Jackie: whoa!… lewd…
KAIA: Wha- what the!? Rachael… Y…you don’t have to do this…
RACHAEL: It’ll… It’ll be fine… I think. After all, you all did say you’d protect me if anything happens…
KAIA: I… I mean, that’s true… but…
CHARISSE: shoot, and I wanted to see what that secret was too Okaaaay, fine. Rachael has made her choice, so she’s doing the dare… I was craving a pizza anyway


Charisse pulls out her purse, and takes out a coupon for :pizzid: Pizzeria, then tosses it to Rachael.

CHARISSE: Go ahead and give them a ring, Rachael… you can pick the toppings, and I’ll pay after you tell me the price. It’s only fair…

Rachael catches the business card and pulls out her cell. She pauses a little bit as she takes another deep breath, She really is going to go through with this… a small part of her is loudly telling her she could just leave… but no, she made her decision to get out more and gain confidence, make connections and new bonds, and have fun before she wastes away the rest of her college years. And this is the most courageous thing she can think of to keep her secret while doing this. And exposing herself might be the best way to gain confidence… right? it does sound exciting… Wait, no. Stop thinking that.

KAIA: Remember, you can skip out any time while you wait for pizza. We won’t judge… right ladies?

Jackie gives a thumbs up with her leafy hand while Charisse just shrugs

Rachael nods. With that bit of assurance, she gains the willpower to dial the number.

...

Back at the present time in :pizzid: Pizzeria, Jerry grabs the ringing phone before Ricardo can answer.

RICARDO: ShowinginitiativeIsee…Ilikethat.gladyou'rebeingmoreseriousaboutthis.

That wasn’t it. Jerry wasn’t meaning to show initiative, he just would rather not have the customer try to understand what his uncle is saying on the phone with his fast talking and waste everyone’s time, get a better idea where the customer will be at so he can prepare himself for the upcoming journey, and not read the address wrong again.

Jerry thanks the customer for calling over the phone and asks for their name, location, and phone number. A soft spoken, and shaky female voice is on the other line

RACHAEL: H-Hi… I’m Rae…

Rachael suddenly catches herself. Best not give her real name, especially with what she is about to do

Rachael: I mean, I’m Ramona! I’m located… I’m located at the dorms of MARINATION UNIVERSITY… room number 721

Jerry writes down her info and pauses briefly as he recognizes that college name. That’s the same college he went to for acting classes. Would be nice to see how it changed over the years. He then asks Ramona for her order.

Suddenly, Rachael freezes up. She was so caught up with thinking about the dare that she forgot to think about what pizza she wants.

Jerry is slightly annoyed that the customer was not ready for the order, but silently awaits regardless.

KAIA: I knew it… Come on, let’s go home to calm your nerves.
RACHAEL: *gasps*


Rachael covers the phone with her paw to not let the pizza delivery man hear.

RACHAEL: nonononono, it’s just that, I just can’t decide what to order!
RACHAEL: This was just so sudden...
CHARISSE: Then just get a cheese pizza, you doof!
RACHAEL: But… but not many people order something as quick and simple and inexpensive as cheese... what if the delivery person gets suspicious of that order and figures out what is going to happen?
CHARISSE: Come on… you’re overthinking it…
JACKIE: order peppers! Hot peppers!
KAIA: Hey! This is RACHAEL’S order, she gets to choose the toppings
KAIA: It’s alright Rachael, just think about what toppings you like most. Remember, Charisse is paying.
CHARISSE: just… don’t go overboard, got it?
KAIA: Charisse, you promised me you were going to make Rachael feel comfortable, so suck it up!
CHARISSE: Fine, fine. I’m a kangaroo of my word. I'll shut up and go grab the bathrobe from my room...

PAPER DOLL TIME, PIZZA EDITION! Please draw and customize what kind of pizza Rachael will order on the pizza peel! Add whatever you want and write a description of the kind of toppings and stuff it has on and/or in the pizza! Do not worry if it makes no sense or if the toppings are absurd, Rachael is a pretty nervous bnuuy and could potentially just order the first ridiculous things that come to mind without thinking, or you can just add regular toppings.

Don’t feel like drawing the pizza? Don't have time to draw a pizza? you could also just write down what kind of pizza and toppings Rachael wants.

Kaia and her friends are right, she can take time to think about whatever toppings she wants, she shouldn’t overthink things, and she should totally order some hot pepp… nevermind.

However, whenever Rachael has to make an important phonecall, she has to write a script to read off what she wants to say so she doesn’t mess up her words, get stuck pausing thinking about what she wants to say carefully, or avoid accidentally offending anyone. Since this was a spur of the moment, she is left with her own mind to rely on.

‘It’s okay’ she thinks to herself, ‘just pick a topping you really like even if it is too suspicious that you’re ordering something quick and simple for a dare, but then just add in a topping that nobody would order to throw the employee off their suspicions. No one on the other line will suspect you’ll be taking the pizza naked with this order!’ With that, Rachael has made her decision: a pepperoni, chicken (without bones), and pineapple pizza, cheese stuffed crust, and with fruit punch as a drink! Perfect! She repeats the line she is going to say in her head a few times, and then begins speaking

RACHAEL: C-Can I get a bone-in pizza w-w-with- um- p-pepperoni, and pineapple, and stuffed bone, stuffed pepperonis, and a fruit punch center?

W… WAIT! That wasn’t what she meant to say! AHHHHH! Why does everything she wants to say out loud sounds so much worse than how it sounds in her head!?

However, the person on the other line without missing a beat confirms the order as a number 4 and asks if there’s anything else she wants.

Rachael is in shock! IT’S REAL?! Not only did they accept the order, but it was apparently an order on the menu?! As number 4 no less!? Rachael in utter confusion and without wanting to admit her mistake quickly thanks the employee, to which he responds saying something along the lines of please allowing two updates to prepare the pizza before timing the updates, we still gotta prologue to finish after all.

Rachael quickly thanks the employee profusely, hangs up, and turns to face her friends with a nervous smile on her face. Charisse raises an eyebrow, but shrugs.

CHARISSE: I guess Rachael has an acquired taste. Well, whateves. I’m not going to eat it. You girls can share it without me... with the pumpkin.
KAIA: Um… that’s okay, Rachael, I’ll eat it with you… I’m sure it’ll taste… delicious.
KAIA: Don’t knock it till you try it as they say.
JACKIE: Awwwww, no hot peppers…
KAIA: Hey, it’s Rachael’s orders!
JACKIE: Ah well, a naked Rachael will be hot enough to quench my thirst.
KAIA: Wait… you meant hot peppers as in…
KAIA: Forget it, I don’t wanna know!
KAIA: Well, in any case, just remember you don’t have to do this, Rachael, we can go home whenever you want...
CHARISSE: Orrrrrrr you can switch to telling us the truth!


Rachael shakes her head

RACHAEL: I’m f…fine.
CHARISSE: well… okay then.


Charisse throws Rachael a bathrobe

CHARISSE: Go and get undressed whenever you’re ready. You can use my bathroom.
JACKIE: Or undress here!


Kaia glares daggers at Jackie

JACKIE: Hey, just suggesting it as an option

RACHAEL: Bathroom is fine, thanks!


Rachael runs over to the bathroom, robe dragging along the floor by her hand, and slams the door shut, locking it.

MESSAGE FROM PEA: Congrats, your customer, and pizza order choices has been locked in. We’ll check in on these dorks every now on then as the B plot. But the main focus will be on Jerry’s journey to deliver that pizza(?) Also, I guess this quest is now potentially NSFW? If that’s the case, there’s your warning right there, this quest is now potentially NSFW.

Jerry hangs up the phone after receiving the order, and goes over the notes he’s written. Of course, Jerry finds the pizza that was ordered really disgusting and cursed, but he also knows by now that there are many species out there with vastly different kinds of tastes. That is why :pizzid: has a huge diverse range of pizzas that humans may find unappetizing, but other species find delicious, like a doggie treat pizza for example.

In fact, sometimes whenever there is a weird pizza that gets ordered, Jerry likes to play a guessing game where he tries to figure out what kind of species ordered what kind of weird pizza.

And judging by the order he received, he can without a doubt with confidence believe that the person who ordered this pizza was……… a human! Has to be, his species eats weird shit all the time, like haggis!
Jerry wonders if it is speciesist to play such games.

Satisfied with this answer, Jerry informs his uncle about the new order. After explaining what kind of pizza it is, Ricardo starts laughing

RICARDO: Ahahahahahahahaha!*sigh*tobeyoungagain...

Ricardo cheerful expression then quickly becomes more serious
RICARDO: Justremember,Geraldo,toALWAYStreatthecustomerwiththeutmostRESPECT,NOMATTERWHAT.Yougotthat?

That’s odd. What was with that laugh? And isn’t the rule about treating the customers with respect something that goes without saying? It’s common knowledge after all. Why would Jerry need to be reminded of this? He tries to ask his uncle about what he’s getting at.

RICARDO: Don’tworryaboutit…you’llsee…

Ricardo just smirks and laughs again leaving Jerry in the dark.

RICARDO: Well,don’tjuststandthere,gogetprepared!I’llcookthepizza.

Right, Jerry can’t just stand there, he’s gotta get ready for this pizza order and protect his job position. This is his last chance to prove himself after all. He pulls out his smart phone and puts in the coordinates of the location for the MARINATION UNIVERSITY DORMITORIES so he can get a better idea of what the journey will entail and decide how he would like to prepare…



…Aww shit,

Well the good news is: the ETA to the dormitories will be around 15-20 updates assuming there won’t be any PROBLEMS… but the bad news is that all the possible routes to get there during the middle of his journey are each dangerous in their own rite and there will most likely be SITUATIONS and PROBLEMS.

To make things easier on himself, Jerry divides his journey to three SECTIONS. He feels the par time for each SECTION will be 10 UPDATES each, which means if he doesn’t make it to a CHECKPOINT before the par time, he’ll have to RUSH in the next SECTION!
The first SECTION involves him going through the street :pizzid: is located at: SAUCE STREET. It unfortunately will be rush hour during that time, so no doubt he will be facing some traffic, and some other SITUATIONS

Once he passes the first section, he’ll need to park his moped at the first CHECKPOINT located at the PARKING LOT, as that is the closest parking spot to the dormitories he can legally park. There, he’ll have to decide on which road to take to make it to his destination for the second SECTION.

Reaching the end of whatever road he takes will lead him to the FINAL CHECKPOINT, where he can evaluate things and prepare to look for ROOM 721 at the dormitories and make it to his destination during the FINAL SECTION.

1017373

With that in mind, Jerry starts thinking about the streets he can choose to take for the SECOND SECTION, each with their own set of SITUATIONS and PROBLEMS, and ASSHOLES

The first possible street he can take is BROCCOLI STREET. The ASSHOLE who resides there is none other than CRUST CITY’S very own ELF SUPERHERO, THE BOID! And while he does fight crime to keep the city safe, he has also proclaimed himself to be PIZZA'S #1 ADVERSARY. If there is anyone who hates pizza more than Jerry, it’s this ASSHOLE. And while Jerry can respect his hatred, THE BOID tends to give Jerry PROBLEMS and has managed to destroy his pizza in the past.

THE BOID used to be a customer over at :pizzid:, but one day, after taking a bite from one of :pizzid:’s pizza, some very hot cheese accidentally slid off the pizza and fell on his chin, burning him. From then on, he believed that all pizzas are trying to retaliate against citizens, and decided to don some footy pajamas, wear a towel as a cape, and put on a beak from a cheap Halloween store, and announced that he will not rest until :pizzid:’s so-called controversy for world domination is exposed and taken down, saving the world from random pizza attacks once and for all. Jerry wonders why THE MAYOR would allow vigilantes like him on the street, especially crazy ones that try to destroy his pizza. But he guesses since THE BOID also fights crimes better than the police, the mayor simply ignores him.

Going down this street, Jerry will have to deal with THE BOID annoying him, and try to protect the customer’s pizza from being destroyed by him.

The next possible street Jerry can take is THREE HAMS ROAD

THREE HAMS ROAD is home to CRUST CITY’S Burger joint: BURGERVANIA, rival to :pizzid:. The ASSHOLE and extremely popular rollerblading waitress mascot known as W2K works there. Jerry is unsure if she is a robot animatronic, or someone in a mascot suit, and is scared to ask or find out.

W2K actually used to be Jerry’s girlfriend ever since he was in college. He would skip classes just to hang out with her at BURGERVANIA. She would always be into thrilling and scary experiences with Jerry such as chasing each other around, watching scary movies, going into haunted houses, roller coasters. As long as it got the blood pumping, she was all for it. If there was one thing she loved more, it would be her job at BURGERVANIA. She is mad about burgers and loves serving them.

When their relationship ended a year ago, that was when Jerry saw W2K’s psychotic side. Ricardo specifically told him not to ever see W2K again as she is a part of :pizzid:’s rival restaurant, BURGERVANIA when Jerry was starting out. So when Jerry broke up with her, she really did not take that lightly, especially after finding out it was because Jerry was working for :pizzid:, her greatest competitor. From that point on, whenever Jerry passed by with a pizza to deliver, she would threaten and try to kill Jerry with her chainsaw, turn him into a square burger, and feed him to her cat. Jerry finds it stupid how he can’t just report her due to her popularity, and because her father is the chief of police and good friends with THE MAYOR.

If Jerry takes this street, he’ll have to deal with a crazy ex-girlfriend chasing and hunting him down like in some kind of slasher film.

Next possible street is EXTRA CHEEZE STREET, where the BACON APARTMENTS are located at, and home to the ASSHOLES known as the :pizzid: FANATICS!

One day, before Jerry worked for :pizzid:, THE MAYOR held the annual PALATE OF CRUST CITY event, where people can buy and trade tickets to eat and try out different food from different restaurants. Ricardo entered this event to serve his :pizzid:, and it was a massive hit… so much so that it caused mobs to form around his booth and the event had to be cancelled since nobody was able to get through. To this day, whenever Jerry would pass by this street, just about everyone will try to chase him down to steal his pizza!

EUGENE, the green pizza rat also lives in the BACON APARTMENTS, and no one loves :pizzid: pizza more than him. But everybody calls him Gene. Jerry will most likely see him even if he doesn’t go down EXTRA CHEEZE STREET as a minor ASSHOLE. But if Jerry takes this street, Eugene will definitely be leading the mob to try to steal Jerry’s pizza as a major ASSHOLE.

If Jerry goes down this path, He’ll risk the customer’s pizza getting stolen, and will have to waste updates trying to get it back before most of it gets eaten.

Next possible street is MUSHROOM AVENUE, where the church of the MELTING IRIS is at, lead by the priest CASEY THE PILLOW.

Let’s be honest, it’s a cult full of creepy ASSHOLES. Jerry is not exactly sure what they worship or their motives, and was confused about it even when he did some research. One thing is for sure is that he wants nothing to do with them. The MELTING IRIS had recently been recognized as a religion by THE MAYOR and has started getting some funding from the city somehow.

Jerry had been in some weird SITUATIONS on this road. Early around the time when he started his job at :pizzid: and went down this road, a creepy looking kobold would always persist him to take a survey each and every day. It wasn’t until one particular bad day when he was almost late on a delivery that he decided to cave in and answer the questions at random without really paying attention so that maybe he wouldn’t be stopped to take a survey ever again.
After the survey was done, the kobold looked at the results, and gave Jerry a look of unease shock and wouldn’t say another word.

But despite that confusion, Jerry wasn’t bothered anymore for about a week until he noticed people in the street were staring at him whenever he passed by and whisper to each other. The last straw was when one day there was nobody on the streets for some reason, yet Jerry felt like he was being watched intensely. When he looked over at a manhole across the street, he was pretty sure he saw one of the cultist, the microphone person, glaring at him, and holding a net. This was followed by what he thinks was the sounds of footsteps which always felt like was getting closer and faster to him, causing him to run out of MUSHROOM AVENUE. Jerry was pretty sure that if he stayed longer, someone would have kidnapped him, He doesn’t want to go back down this road… but who knows, it’s been some months since he last visited, maybe they forgot all about him?

If he decides to go down Mushroom Avenue, he’ll have to try not to be potentially kidnapped by a weird cult.

The last possible road Jerry can choose to take is SUPREME ROAD. Nothing really special about it, except that the MAYOR lives here. Though it is doubtful Jerry will see him since he works at CITY HALL, and CITY HALL is nowhere near SUPREME ROAD.

There isn’t any ASSHOLES here as far as Jerry knows, but it is still full of SITUATIONS and PROBLEMS to get out of. Really, if he takes this road, it’ll be like going through the first section, and won’t have to worry about the risks an ASSHOLE from the other roads would cause… but he has a feeling it might take a little longer to make it to his destination if he chooses that road, and there will be more PROBLEMS than usual to get out of.

Luckily, Jerry has PALS that can help him out. Specifically, two that stand out is HARMON the cat, and VINCENT the human. Both usually are hiding out at the FIRST CHECKPOINT at the parking spot.

Harmon is pretty chill, and has a rad bike. He keeps a baggie full of weed and will definitely help Jerry as long as he promises him “a slice of that sweet ‘za”

Vincent, Harmon’s best friend, is a quiet dude who also keeps weed as well, but unlike Harmon who uses it for recreational purposes, he uses it for medicinal purposes, as it helps him eat the pizza. Unfortunately, the weed leaves him a more neurotic instead of less.

If Jerry wants their help, he’ll have to spend at least one update to convince them, with a chance of failing to recruit them but having the chance to try again for another update. Fortunately, Jerry is guaranteed to have them helping him if he can pay them with a slice of pizza!

Now that Jerry knows what he’ll be up against, it is time to look into the :pizzid:'s POCKET INTERDIMENSIONAL CLOSET and pick out some items that will help him on his journey! He thinks he has room for 5 items to take with him in his HAMMERSPACIAL DIMENSION.

Plz post item ideas you want Jerry to bring with him on his quest along with a description on what they do. Be as creative as you want, but try not to go too OP with whatever crazy items we have here. For example, no “teleporter that can take you wherever you want”, because people can use that with the intent of getting to the destination in one update ending the quest early.

If an item is overpowered, but cool enough, I will nerf it to try to make things fair.

You’re not limited to just one item either, if you have multiple item ideas, post them.

You can also come up with items that could potentially SABOTAGE Jerry instead of HELPING him.

Some item examples could be a pizza decoy, a slice of pizza to give to someone to help you, skateboard, whatever you want!

After a while, I will put together a poll of the items you all suggested, and have you all select five items you want Jerry to bring

I'll come up with more later, but here's one:

The necklace of chaotic probability
The die will occasionally roll inside of it's case, the lower the roll, the more likely BAD things will happen, the higher the roll, the more likely GOOD things will happen, unfortunately the dice hates whoever has it and will try to roll WORSE more often then not.

My idea is that he carries it with him in case someone he really hates comes along so he can give them a "present" and get them off his back with both good AND bad luck. It's a double edged sword you see.

All of these streets seem interesting in different ways, so if you don't mind I'm just going to rank my interest in them instead of listing my fave of the bunch.

1: THREE HAMS ROAD (I want Jerry to have to deal with his ex)
2: EXTRA CHEEZE STREET (An entire town of crazies after his pizza also sounds pretty neat though, lots of possibility there)
3: SUPREME ROAD (This seems like it has the potential to intersect with any and all of the previous choices, and could basically be like playing on hard mode)
4: BROCCOLI STREET (I hate The Boid, but if we engage with him then maybe just maybe he will die a horrible death)
5: MUSHROOM AVENUE (Nothing wrong with this option, just seems like it has the most predictable obstacles, which dampens the chaos some)

Now let's talk tools of the trade. If Henry Stickmin has taught us anything, it's that it isn't the tools themselves but how you use them. As such, I'm going to try for an even split of cool useful stuff to mundane seemingly useless stuff.

I'm also going to suggest way too much. Deal with it.

Green Spotted Mushroom - Grants whoever eats it an extra life. Takes a frame rule (one update) to respawn.

Screwdriver - With a changeable tip. Phillips head AND Flat head all in one.

Stale pepperoni - About two handfuls of pepperoni that have fallen off of pizzas mid-delivery.

Airbag - Car not attached.

Poodle Doll - A living stuffed toy he picked up in an alternate world of living plushes. Indeterminate size, nobody is really sure if it'll be the size of a normal toy, your size, giant, etc. His name is Mary.

Air Tank - A tank filled with about 30 minutes worth of air.

Scuba Gear - Doesn't include an air tank, so this is all unfortunately useless.

Leaning Tower of Pizza Boxes - About 9 Feet tall. Only stays up via suspension of disbelief.

The "I Don't Care"-inator! - A ray gun that inflicts a temporary lack of interest in whoever it hits. You have not been hit by this, you were hit by life. Only has three charges.

Lawyer Badge - Proves that you are legally fit to stand as an attorney. Purchased from the dollar store.

Trousers - Always keep a spare pair! You may never need them, but consider yourself lucky if you don't. Comes with a belt.

Painting Supplies -A canvas, easel, paints, brushes, the whole she-bang. Except for green, you've been out of green for a while. You have yellow and blue, but it's not the same...

Repulsion Gel -Two buckets full of one of Aperture Labs' signature goos. A blue gel that will make any surface it hits gain bouncy properties. Aperture Science is not responsible for any limbs broken while using this.

Baseball Bat - Hey batter batter! Great for reflecting projectiles, baseballs especially.

The Hottest Hot Sauce in the WORLD!!! - Guaranteed to melt your tongue or your money back! (May actually just be a jar filled with acid.)

Halloween Pail Filled with Candy - You got it all. Chocolate, peanut butter, gummy candies, sour stuff, raisins, etc.

The Arsene Amulet - A mystical artifact that allows the wielder to steal someone else's Epithet, a mystical word attached to their soul which grants special powers. Epithet users aren't exactly common around here, but you can always take a chance that anybody seeming to have super powers may just have an epithet specifically.

A Lot of Sheep - You can't seem to count how many are in here without falling asleep...

Polaroid Camera - Somebody put a way-too-bright bulb in the flash, and now it's effectively a tool for blinding people alongside it's more common use of taking photos.

Purr Feckt's Purse - You didn't steal this, you just haven't had the chance to return it to her yet after she left it at the courthouse. Contains her wallet, important evidence for another trial (hopefully one in the far future, you'd hate to have to deal with her today if she comes to get this), feminine products, keys (how did she get home without her car or house keys?), and a pair of handcuffs. You'd guess she has them because she's a prosecutor, but the fuzzy pink design screams "Personal Use".

Opacitator - "You'll walk through walls! - Gadget Gabe (2009)"

Cupcake - Sweet!

Dances of Unfortunate Travel - A book of ritualistic dances that provide completely unreliable transportation to you and others. The five factors it considers are Direction, Distance, Transportation Method (teleportation, flight, sudden compulsion to walk, conga line, plot hole, etc.) the number of targets affected, and which specific targets to cast it on. Theoretically different moves can control all of the methods, but you're only good enough to choose two at a time to control. All other factors are effectively random, your dance methods setting their values. Takes about 1/4th an update of uninterrupted dancing to activate.

Gerbera's Phone Number - Desperate times may call for the most desperate of measures.

Hot Air Balloon - Hot air not included.

Egg - Hatches after around 9000 steps. Not very helpful when you're driving. Whatever hatches is guaranteed to see you as its father and love you, as long as you treat it well.

Electronic Mail - An envelope containing nothing but pure electricity. You have no idea how it works either.

Rice - Good for drying out your phone.

A Stop Sign - It's time to stop!

Chewing Gum - Pizza flavored. This is considered a number 14 on your menu.

Special Monocle - Has a number of properties such as X-Ray vision and true sight. Only has a limited number of charges however, and may cause meta slowdown by forcing the artist to animate the x-ray effect.

Duct Tape - Arguably the most overpowered item on this list.

A Secret Santa Gift - You can't seem to remember what it is yet for some weird meta reason, but you're pretty sure you'll remember soon enough.

Pizzachu - A rare pizza-eating rodent made of sapient stained glass. You can feed it stale crumbs, causing it to perform all kinds of tricks. Its main purpose is to act as a blinder against muggers.

[Censored] Ferret - In exchange for sugar-glazed pizza bites, this fuzzy contortionist will turn itself into a grappling hook with an increased chance to succeed and dodge.

The County's Smallest Cowty - A cow the size of your hand, capable of re-absorbing mass from an alternate dimension when it is fed soda. Can be used as a roadblock or a stampede.

Stale Leftovers - Your supply of expired foodstuffs from the Pizzaria. You can feed these to your animal companions in exchange for their help. Be warned - feeding a companion too many times during the quest will cause them to become ravenous, demanding more food until they become a hazard to the delivery itself.

I have more pizza related ideas

Tasty Cardboard Pizza - It's a pizza made of 100% organic cardboard, not that it matters. Strangely enough the first bite ALWAYS tastes and FEELS like pizza, but contains no nutritional value. Every bite after that tastes like cardboard, but this would prove useful if you're fighting off a swarm of pizza lovers

Illegal Powdered Donut- a mini powdered donut you've been saving. The sugar content is actually illegal in 17 different countries and consuming it will, for the briefest of moments, give you prescience, but after about [1 Update] you will suffer from an extreme crash of euphoria and a sugar coma, you've been holding into this for a special day, or for when you have a buddy to watch over you.

Pizza Ball - It's a ball textured like a Pizza, it bounces like a normal dodgeball, smells like a pizza, but has no nutritional value and deflates when bitten. You've used this as a weapon as it's technically not one and every time you say it's catchphrase "ITS TIME TO DELIVER A PIZZA-BALL" it returns to your hand by the next update.

You can vote for more than 5 since the list is overwhelmingly big, but try to keep it close to 5 if you can. Think of your favorite items, and then choose your most favorites out of what you like.


Thoughts of which route to take during the second section bounce around in Jerry’s head. He’s leaning towards THREE HAMS ROAD or EXTRA CHEEZE STREET currently, but he realizes he is getting ahead of himself and decides not to dwell too much on thinking about this right now. He’ll make his decision once he reaches the first CHECKPOINT.

Instead, Jerry wants to focus mainly on what items to take with him. So, he opens the :pizzid: POCKET INTERDIMENSIONAL CLOSET, and is instantly greeted by an emptiness of dark space with items floating around inside… a large number of items! Too many items!! Jerry is immediately overwhelmed by how many items are inside, almost making it difficult for him to choose.

The :pizzid: POCKET INTERDIMENSIONAL CLOSET is a closet that contains a pocket dimension :pizzid: uses to store items of various sizes in to help with cooking a pizza such as ingredients sent to them by STEPHAN STUFFLE or cooking tools, and items to prepare for pizza deliveries.

Jerry can fit 5 more items from the closet into his HAMMERSPACIAL DIMENSION, a pocket dimension where he keeps his items (basically his INVENTORY).

Overall, he can fit 10 items, but has already used up 5 of those spaces for:

- Wallet (contains his bank card, drivers license, insurance card, 30 ₵A$H)
- Smart Phone
- Notebook Paper with Ramona's (Rachael's) name, location, phone number, order, and price.
- Keys to the :pizzid: moped
- Lighter

Jerry also has CIGARETTES, but he keeps those in his pants pocket.

You're probably wondering why Jerry doesn't just put Rachael's pizza in his hammer space... Well to that I say, it will all be explained in the next update. Don't worry. It's fiiiiine
Here is the items Jerry can take:

The Necklace of Chaotic Probability
The die will occasionally roll inside of its case, the lower the roll, the more likely BAD things will happen, the higher the roll, the more likely GOOD things will happen, unfortunately the dice hates whoever has it and will try to roll WORSE more often than not. (During SITUATIONS, if Jerry carries this, it will subtract 3 HELP points from the votes, but if he manages to give it to an ASSHOLE, or someone bothering him, it will subtract 3 SABOTAGE points from the vote as long as the ASSHOLE currently bothering him is holding it. if HELP wins in a SITUATION, it'll be guaranteed that if Jerry faces a PROBLEM in the next SITUATION, it won't result in another SITUATION happening when Jerry tries to get out of the PROBLEM.)

Teal Spotted Mushroom
Grants whoever eats it an extra life. Takes a frame rule (one update) to respawn... but will cause HALLUCINATIONS to occur.

Screwdriver
With a changeable tip. Phillips head AND Flat head all in one.

Stale pepperoni
About two handfuls of pepperoni that have fallen off of pizzas mid-delivery.

Airbag
Car not attached.

Poodle Doll
A living stuffed toy he picked up in an alternate world of living plushes. Indeterminate size, nobody is really sure if it'll be the size of a normal toy, your size, giant, etc. His name is Mary. He was Jerry’s campaign manager during his political campaign.

Air Tank
A tank filled with about 30 minutes worth of air.

Scuba Gear
Doesn't include an air tank, so this is all unfortunately useless.

Leaning Tower of Pizza Boxes
About 9 Feet tall. Only stays up via suspension of disbelief.

The "I Don't Care"-inator!
A ray gun that inflicts a temporary lack of interest in whoever it hits. You have not been hit by this, you were hit by life. Only has one charge left.

Lawyer Badge
Proves whoever has it is legally fit to stand as an attorney. Purchased from the dollar store. Made of cardboard

Trousers
Always keep a spare pair! Jerry may never need them, but consider himself lucky if he doesn't. Comes with a belt.

Painting Supplies
A canvas, easel, paints, brushes, the whole she-bang. Except for green, Jerry has been out of green for a while. He have yellow and blue, but it's not the same...

Repulsion Pizza Sauce
Two buckets full of Ricardo's experimental repulsion pizza sauces that he tried to invent to keep stray particles like dust off the Pizza, but that experiment didn't work out well as it prevented toppings or cheese from staying on the pizza. Also inedible because it's REPULSIVE. It will make any surface it hits gain bouncy properties. :pizzid: is not responsible for any limbs broken while using this.

Baseball Bat
Hey batter batter! Great for reflecting projectiles, baseballs especially.

The Hottest Hot Sauce in the WORLD!!!
Guaranteed to melt your tongue or your money back! (May actually just be a jar filled with acid.)

Halloween Pail Filled with Candy
You got it all. Chocolate, peanut butter, gummy candies, sour stuff, raisins, etc. (May or may not be EXPIRED)

A Lot of Sheep
You can't seem to count how many are in here without falling asleep...

Polaroid Camera
Somebody put a way-too-bright bulb in the flash, and now it's effectively a tool for blinding people alongside it's more common use of taking photos. All the photos are to bright to see tho.

Purr Feckt's Purse
Jerry didn't steal this, he just haven't had the chance to return it to her yet after she left it at the courthouse. He’s serious! Contains her wallet, important evidence for another trial (hopefully one in the far future, you'd hate to have to deal with her today if she comes to get this), feminine products, keys (how did she get home without her car or house keys?), and a pair of handcuffs. You'd guess she has them because she's a prosecutor, but the fuzzy pink design screams "Personal Use".

Cupcake
Sweet! (But it’s pizza flavored)

Dances of Unfortunate Travel
A book of ritualistic dances that provide completely unreliable transportation to you and others. The five factors it considers are Direction, Distance, Transportation Method (teleportation, flight, sudden compulsion to walk, conga line, plot hole, etc.) the number of targets affected, and which specific targets to cast it on. Theoretically different moves can control all of the methods, but you're only good enough to choose two at a time to control. All other factors are effectively random, your dance methods setting their values. Takes about 1/4th an update of uninterrupted dancing to activate.

Gerbera's Phone Number
Desperate times may call for the most desperate of measures. Jerry really doesn't want to take this with him, and hopes his subconscious doesn't accidentally have him grab it (in other words, you suggesters).

Hot Air Balloon
Hot air not included.

Egg
Hatches after around 9000 steps. Not very helpful when you're driving. Whatever hatches is guaranteed to see you as its father and love you, as long as you treat it well.

Electronic Mail
An envelope containing nothing but pure electricity. You have no idea how it works either.

Rice
Good for drying out your phone.

A Stop Sign
It's time to stop!

Chewing Gum
Pizza flavored. This is considered a number 14 on the :pizzid: menu.

Special Monocle
Has a number of properties such as X-Ray vision and true sight. Only has a limited number of charges however, and may cause meta slowdown by forcing the artist to animate the x-ray effect. Jerry thinks this might be more fitting for a tailor than a pizza delivery guy for some reason.

Duct Tape
Arguably the most overpowered item on this list. Can fix EVERYTHING!

A Secret Santa Gift
You can't seem to remember what it is yet for some weird meta reason, but you're pretty sure you'll remember soon enough. (WARNING, may or may not be useful or might not be available at all depending on what happens in the SECRET SANTA 2021 thread: https://questden.org/kusaba/questdis/res/136526.html )

Pizza bomb
A high explosive that looks, smells and weighs identical to your normal delivery box. You throw (probably) this and not the actual pizza at someone to distract them with an explosive cheesy saucy surprise.

Pizza Cutter Ver 3.6.0
A very sharp electric pizza cutter that cuts through tough surfaces. Turn it on, and it spins like a buzzsaw. Not recommended to be used for cutting pizza, as it will cut through the pizza stone. Can be used as a weapon.

A slice of pizza from a week or so ago in a DINNERWARE TIME CAPSULE
Can be used to bribe your way out of a SITUATION or PROBLEM. Can also be used to give to HARMON or VINCENT to guarantee their help, especially if it is WEED PIZZA (That said, when you use this item, please specify what topping you want to have on it such as PEPPERONI, BACON, WEED, etc.) the DINNERWARE TIME CAPSULE kept it WARM (but not HOT)

Tasty Decoy Cardboard Pizza
It is a cardboard pizza that you put over your ordinary pizza. It's made of 100% organic cardboard, not that it matters. Strangely enough the first bite ALWAYS tastes and FEELS like pizza, but contains no nutritional value. Every bite after that tastes like cardboard, but this would prove useful if you're fighting off a swarm of pizza lovers

Sunstone
Jerry stole this from the plush world. Can be used to heat up the pizza if it gets too cold (in the event someone opens the pizza box and lets out some of the heat), or heat up other things.

Pizzachu
A rare pizza-eating rodent made of sapient stained glass. You can feed it stale crumbs, causing it to perform all kinds of tricks. Its main purpose is to act as a blinder against muggers.

[Censored] Ferret
In exchange for sugar-glazed pizza bites, this fuzzy contortionist will turn itself into a grappling hook with an increased chance to succeed and dodge.

The County's Smallest Cowty
A cow the size of your hand, capable of re-absorbing mass from an alternate dimension when it is fed soda. Can be used as a roadblock or a stampede.

Stale Leftovers
Your supply of expired foodstuffs from the Pizzaria. You can feed these to your animal companions in exchange for their help. Be warned - feeding a companion too many times during the quest will cause them to become ravenous, demanding more food until they become a hazard to the delivery itself. Can also be used to distract people bothering Jerry.

Ultramarine Shell
Throw it and it hits the person at the front of the line! Any line!

WebMovie Account Password
The corporate account used for streaming movies! For use only when bored.

Ice Dream
An ice sculpture in the shape of an ice cream cone. Throw it on any street to turn that road into the BOULEVARD OF BROKEN DREAMS.

Illegal Powdered Donut
a mini powdered donut you've been saving. The sugar content is actually illegal in 17 different countries and consuming it will, for the briefest of moments, give you prescience, but after about [1 Update] you will suffer from an extreme crash of euphoria and a sugar coma, you've been holding into this for a special day, or for when you have a buddy to watch over you.

Pizza Ball
It's a ball textured like a Pizza, it bounces like a normal dodgeball, smells like a pizza, but has no nutritional value and deflates when bitten. Jerry used this as a weapon as it's technically not one and every time he’d say it's catchphrase "ITS TIME TO DELIVER A PIZZA-BALL" it returns to his hand by the next update.

A Lyluk brand SLUSHEE
A slushee of dubious origin that when drunk improves some of your stats for a few updates. Pizza flavored. (Gives Jerry +2 points for HELP in a SITUATION.) WARNING: HAS A 20% CHANCE TO EITHER MAKE JERRY SHITTY, OR TURN HIM INTO A LYLUK. (not recommended for Hippos.) [/b]

I would like to make a suggestion to all suggestors to avoid repetition. Pick the pizza in tupperware if you were going to pick the cardboard pizza.

They're pretty similar, and I can see people voting for both. That wouldn't really be a problem at all, but for the sake of variety I'm gonna push for everyone to pick one and abandon the other.

No specific reason for the leftover pizza over cardboard, other than it feels more helpful to me. Please feel free to disagree and tell me why I'm wrong and fat in your own suggestions.

Other than that pick whatever y'all like best, too many good options I won't even start to try and influence you otherwise.

Indecision plagues Jerry’s mind as his eyes explores through the items in front of him, he really doesn’t want his pizza delivery position to be taken from him and get stuck in a mascot costume all day every day, so he’s taking longer than usual and being extra considerate of each and every item in front of him.

He looks over at the stuffie plush doll of MI MARY the Fur-kin poodle that he put away along with the SUNSTONE and PURR FECKT’S PURSE from his previous delivery after opening this closet earlier and reminisces about what happened during the previous delivery.

Mary was his campaign manager after Purr Feckt and P.I. Zzander sent him to some kind of plush world. The two met during the second day of Jerry’s struggling political campaign and the poodle was insistent in wanting to help Jerry since he disagreed with one party, and got fired from another for not going with their corrupt cheating. Jerry was the only one he had because otherwise, he would have had to return alone to his old dying town jobless. He may have been a pushover that has no chance to survive in politics, but with his analytical knowledge of probability of certain items’ effectiveness, and Jerry’s knowledge of making the very pizzas he hated, they were able to determine where and when to strike certain hotspots to win audience over with their addicting cookie pizzas in the shadows while the other political parties were busy SABOTAGING each other with slander, cheating, spying, and even murdering at one point. though none of that compares to the first day he was there when he could have sworn he saw an audience member caught on fire… but then maybe he was seeing things as when he looked again, they were gone

By the time the other political parties realized how much of a threat Jerry’s addicting cookie pizza was, it was already too late and Jerry won with a huge upset win with the audience. Apparently, everyone was sick of all the lies, corruption, and unrealistic promises the other political parties were doing that they decided to stick to Jerry’s simple promise of bringing dessert pizzas to the town of FLUFFSENUFFS if he won.

When it came time for Jerry to use his newly gained power to leave after winning, Mary rushed in crying after him through the portal back to his world at the last moment as he had nowhere else to go, and became a lifeless doll upon stepping into Crust City…

Jerry assumes that maybe since he was turned into doll to fit into the plush world, Mary in turn became lifeless to fit with his world. It really is a shame. If he was still alive, he would probably be able to analyze the effectiveness of each item in the closet for his journey. Instead, all Mary can do is drift around quietly in the empty space of the closet, alone with all the other items as his eyes slowly opens and his arms flail around trying to swim towards Jerry… wait, what?

Mary: Bosssssss!

To Jerry’s surprise, Mary swims out of the closet, and tumbles onto the floor. He’s alive???

Mary: BORK! Owww… Boss… I’m so glad to see you… Wha- what happened, boss?
Mary: Umm… let’s see… The last thing I remembered, you won the election, got that magic power, people were expecting you to use it to make more cookie pizzas…
Mary: but instead you threw some kind of secret :pizzid: cook book on the floor, opened a portal, gave a rude hand gestor and yelled something along the lines of ‘later suckers’ and took the portal out
Mary: and then I ran in after you crying as the portal was shrinking, blinded by all the tears in my eyes, calling out to you not to leave me…
Mary: and then… and then… bosssss


Mary can’t finish his sentence as he has tears dripping from his eyes, almost about to break down crying in relief to see Jerry again. Jerry sighs in annoyance and tells him he must have fainted after going through the portal in fear and from so much emotion, and tells him to snap outta it and stop acting like a lost puppy, because he’s been found or something like that.

Mary: haaaaah… same ol’ Jerry. I’m so relieved I didn’t lose you forever…
Mary:… You… look different… like, you’re not made of the same kind of things that Cloth-kins are made of… In fact, everything looks different here, so much materials I’ve never seen before!
Mary: What is this place? It’s… colorful!


Jerry explains that this is the world he came from, and they’re in Crust City.

Mary: Wow… This is going to take getting used to, boss.
Mary: But… I don’t think I want to return to my world
Mary: I was kind of a lonely nobody back there, hoping to make a living after leaving my dying town, but I just couldn’t handle it.
Mary: nowhere to go, nobody to return to…
Mary: Well, there is my sister, buuuuuuut…
Mary: She’s an alcoholic bitch who emotionally abused me.
Mary: Less said about her, the better.
Mary: Fluff her!


Jerry explains that’s probably for the best as he doesn’t seem to have that magic power that got him back home upon returning anymore, and that he’d probably have to ask Purr Feckt to get the coordinates back to his universe if he wanted to return which will be more of a headache than it’s worth.

Mary: That’s okay, boss! I found my purpose here, being your assistant!

Jerry tells him to stop being cheesy and he didn’t agree to this arrangement, but he can tag along and help analyze situations and items he guesses… as long as he puts on the trousers in the closet. He explains to Mary that he has fluffy hair in a weird spot, and although his plush species has nothing there that it’s covering, it’s still fuckin’ weird as shit and wants him to put some damn pants on so he can stop looking at them.

Mary: You’re looking at my crotch?

Jerry angrily tells him to stop twisting his words, his society has a mandatory clothing rule for most species, and he should put some damn pants on, and wait outside the front door for him

Mary: Yes boss! Right away! Though, I don’t see what’s so weird about having hair there. Nobody had a problem with that before…

Mary takes the pants and skips off. Jerry frustratingly calls out to him to put them on before heading out.

SECRET CHARACTER UNLOCKED! MI MARY HAS JOINED THEPIZZA PARTY!
-He has a knack for figuring out the probability of certain outcomes for each item. At the end of each update during a SITUATION, he will analyze all of Jerry’s items and inform Jerry how many POINTS will be added to the HELP or SABOTAGE dice rolls.

-He has a powerful BITE that is worse than his bark… though it’ll take a lot for him to join in a fight or get aggressive because he’s a good boi.

-Has really good hearing and smelling

-Even though Jerry’s HAMMERSPACIAL DIMENSION and the INTERDIMENSIONAL CLOSET does not accept living things, Mary being a STUFFIE (a living plush doll) tricks them into thinking he’s an item for some reason, and can be put inside if Jerry has a free space.

-Mary doesn’t have much of anything to store items with, but he carries his clipboard wherever he goes, and can use his trousers to fit some small things in his pockets.

-Jerry will need to convince Purr Feckt to give him the coordinates to Mary’s world if he wants to send him back home… though he doesn’t seem to want to go back currently.

With Mary out of the way, and feeling a bit more confident Jerry decides to pick up the following items:

PIZZA BOMB
STALE LEFTOVERS
PURR FECKT’S PURSE
ILLEGAL POWDERED DONUT
TASTY DECOY CARDBOARD PIZZA


Jerry is quite satisfied with his decision and shuts the closet.

Message from PEA: there was 3 votes for two items (the purse and the decoy pizza) and a 8-way tie for the rest of the items with two votes, so I decided to throw you all a bone and make one of the items (the poodle plus) an unlocked secret character instead of an item (and gave him pants, you’re welcome), and chose one item from each suggester who got an item with 2 votes.

Next, Jerry heads over to the kitchen to do a quality check on the pizza that his uncle just cooked… or so he tells his uncle. In reality, he’s taking the time to summon a spirit of an old friend from the pizza for help. As soon as Jerry grabs the pizza out of the oven and places it in the box, steam floats upwards towards the ceiling and takes the form of a creature’s spirit.

This is ANTONIO DEVARARA, the weird-pink-cyclopes-elephant-ghost-whatever-thing. He was the delivery guy that Gerbera replaced and was worked to the bone by uncle Ricardo. One day after he finished a very difficult delivery, he got a heart attack after not receiving a tip to pay off the 10 ₵A$H he owed his friend Jerry, and was punished by some otherworldly beings for not paying off his debts before dying. He was ordered to make up for the ₵A$H he owes Jerry by becoming his GAURDIAN SPIRIT as the SPIRIT OF LEFTOVER PIZZA before he can leave for the afterlife. Since then, Antonio unenthusiastically helps Jerry out of any SITUATION he finds himself in with the hope that one day, he’ll fulfill enough good deeds to make up for the debt he owes Jerry and be allowed into the afterlife. he regrets not buying life insurance.

Antonio upon being summoned tiredly stares at Jerry

Antonio: Let me guess… another pizza delivery? Right after that previous BS delivery

Jerry nods

Antonio: Fine, whatever… lets me fulfill more good deeds I owe you anyways… But just once, couldn’t you, like, summon me for normal tasks?
Antonio: like cooking you a meal?
Antonio: finding the tv remote?
Antonio: hell, even clean the :pizzid: public restroom?
Antonio: instead of dealing with this stupid city’s shit?
Antonio: or how about just summon me for a movie night or something worth my while for once?


Jerry reminds Antonio that he can only summon Antonio from the steam of a pizza, and he’d rather not waste several updates cooking a pizza just to fulfill something that can finish himself in a few updates.

Antonio: Right, right… *sigh* I just wish I knew how many good deeds are worth 10 ₵A$H so I can get the fuck out of this miserable world.

Jerry explains he doesn’t know, but theorizes that maybe because it took so long to pay off the 10 ₵A$H, it has been accruing interest?

Antonio: *sigh* Fucking hell, that better not be the case.
Antonio: That previous delivery was bullshit and should have been worth 100 ₵A$H at the very least.
Antonio: You know what, forget it.
Antonio: Complaining about it isn’t going to solve it.
Antonio: I guess I’ll help.
Antonio: What choice do I have?
Antonio: Just make sure the problem you have me solve is worth a lot of good deeds.


ANTONIO DEVARARA, THE SPIRIT OF LEFTOVER PIZZA HAS JOINED THE PIZZA PARTY!

- He has spiritual powers that is powered by pizza, and can perform pizza related magic

- his help will add 7 points to the HELP dice rolls, no matter the circumstances.

- Won’t guarantee that it’ll get rid of major ASSHOLES Jerry will find in the second section of the pizza delivery, but will still add 7 points the HELP dice rolls

-BE WARNED! Opening the pizza box to summon him will cause the pizza’s temperature to lower. The Pizza’s temperature will go from hot, to warm, to cold, to freezing. Jerry can maintain temperature for one turn by giving Antonio STALE LEFTOVERS to power him up.

- There are ways to heat up the pizza if its temperature drops

- the lower the temperature is, the lower the customer’s satisfaction will be and will affect how well Jerry’s performance will be in Jerry’s uncle’s eyes.

Jerry and Antonio’s discussion is cut short as Jerry’s sleeve is being tugged by some leaves. Jerry slams the pizza box shut, which causes Antonio to sink rapidly into the pizza box, with the lid of the box slamming against his head on his way in.

Antonio: ow…

Jerry glares over to where the leaves are coming from, and finds that they are predictably attached to Gerbera.

Gerbera: Hi Jerry, Hi!
Gerbera: Talking to your imaginary friend again?


Jerry forgot that he’s the only one who can see and hear Antonio unless he uses his pizza power to let him be temporarily seen in a physical form. He can’t believe that smug flower caught him talking to himself in their eyes again.
Gerbera: Pretty cool Jerry, I got an imaginary friend too, one that is physical and that you can see! a little toy of myself! Hahahaha!

Great, now not only Gerbera is patronizing Jerry by showing off an imaginary friend that not only actually has a physical form, is not only better than Jerry’s supposed imaginary friend, but it LOOKS LIKE THEM TOO! Of course, their imaginary friend would be one that looks like themself! Seriously, who would make a toy based off of Gerbera? Jerry wonders why can’t Gerbera go one day not trying to prove they’re better than Jerry in every way?

Antonio: I’m not imaginary, you idiot…

Jerry tells Gerbera to get to the point and asks why they’re here, shouldn’t they be dancing, or dealing with that custardme… Custard named Mer, or be finding a successor to be their replacement to advertise :pizzid: as “The ZA”?

Gerbera: OH! Don’t worry about all that!
Gerbera: Mer got their deep-dish pizza and is bathing in it!
Gerbera: also unrelated, Ricardo said they’re adding a new custard deep-dish pizza on the menu
Gerbera: Also Ricardo told me he already found a replacement for me for when I become the delivery person!
Gerbera: So I had to cancel that dancing competition I set up for the 5 interested customers


Wait, Gerbera actually found some people willing to humiliate themselves in a pizza costume?!

Gerbera: And guess what!
Gerbera: Ricardo said you’re my replacement!
Gerbera: That’s wonderful!
Gerbera: You took acting classes in college, so you should be a pro at this, my bud!
Gerbera: I’m so happy for you, you’re going to have a lot of fun, I’m sure.


Okay, now Gerbera is just making fun of him at this point, Jerry thinks to himself. How dare they compare his sophisticated acting skills he learned from college to dancing like a buffoon in a pizza costume. Jerry says if that’s all Gerbera wanted to say, that they should get back to work.

Gerbera: But I’m on lunch break, my bud!
Gerbera: Well, okay, technically I am at lunch break
Gerbera: But I’m a flower. I just photosynthesize, so it’s more of a break really!
Gerbera: So I figured because I don’t need to eat…
Gerbera: and since I’m going to be a pizza delivery flower…
Gerbera: I figured I should get some hands-on experience by going with you on your delivery route!
Gerbera: what do you say, bud? May I come with you, please? I could really use the training!


Aw, hell no! Jerry really doesn’t like the idea of training someone who is about to replace him, especially not GERBERA OF ALL PEOPLE! What if their smugness makes them try to take all the glory for Jerry’s hard work for themselves when the delivery is over?

But then again, what if Gerbera goes on this pizza delivery journey with Jerry and after seeing the PROBLEMS Jerry encounters first hand, they decide to quit and go back to dancing in the costume?

Jerry decides to list the pros and cons of Gerbera joining the PIZZA PARTY:

Pros:
- they will be able to HELP Jerry out of SITUATION
- they might find out their not cut out for this if they go through enough PROBLEMS, possibly giving Jerry a higher chance to keep his job in delivering pizza.

Cons:
- It’ll be harder to recruit Harmon the cat, and Vincent in the second section if Gerbera is in the PIZZA PARTY as Jerry has told them how terrible Gerbera is
- Gerbera will probably take all the credit for delivering the pizza, making them look better than Jerry in Ricardo’s eyes

Jerry is currently split on the decision to let Gerbera join or not. What do you all think, should Gerbera join, or not?
IMPORTANT PLZ READ: If you want to vote to have them join, please come up with a PRO for having them in the PIZZA PARTY likewise, if you don’t want Gerbera to join, please come up with a CON. YOUR VOTE WILL NOT BE COUNTED IF YOU DON’T LIST A PRO OR A CON. ALSO, IT CANNOT BE THE SAME LISTED HERE, OR WHAT SOMEBODY ELSE CAME UP WITH IN THE SUGGESTIONS.

No. 1020163 ID: 629f2e

Holy shit yes. Absolutely bring Gerbera, they don't know what they're fucking getting into. They don't know what hell awaits them in every delivery.

PRO: Gerbera can vouch for Jerry on whatever bullshit encumbers them when they get back to Ricardo, making it look even more amazing if Jerry succeeds the delivery
>>
No. 1020172 ID: 0838d6

YES, Pro: Gerb can finally understand that JERRY is actually CURSED when making deliveries, it's not really his fault that the universe conspires against him.

or alt Pro: Jerry will probably hate Gerbera no matter what, but maybe they can learn to empathize with each other and he can get Gerb to understand that Jerry just isn't into his enthusiasm and finds it pedantic or insulting

So Mary doesn't want to go back to his own world, well ask if he would like to go to the blender instead? That isn't right, Jerry is stuck with him so a more fitting place would be the microwave. As for Gerbera, I would advise against him coming along. He still has optimism and a smile on his face it would be monstrous to steal that from him, also he might get a cut of your pay for doing this, or worse you might owe him a favor for doing this.

No. 1020182 ID: 076735

PRO: Gerb has potential for many plant-based puns, my bud. That and their massive ego is so dense it can curve bullets, or any other projectile for that matter.

UPDATE 1

Jerry tries desperately to think of a lot of cons not to bring Gerbera. But for some reason, even though he can think of a couple more reasons why he shouldn’t bring the flower, his thoughts are betraying him, urging him to take Gerbera along with multiple pros loudly proclaiming good reasons for Gerbera help. Jerry relents, but takes solace in knowing that one of the pros being that he can use Gerbera as a shield if it comes to it.

He sighs and tells Gerbera to install the sidecar on the scooter outside, and wait for him.

Gerbera: REALLY! AW YEAH!
Gerbera: This is gonna be fun! We can tell stories, take in the sights of CRUST CITY!
Gerbera: And bring joy to our customer’s face!
Gerbera: Thanks sooooooo much Jerry. I’ll be waiting outside!
Gerbera: Don’t take too long talking to your imaginary friend, bud!


As Gerbera runs out, Jerry calls out to Gerbera to take some items from the closet, but it’s too late, Gerbera is already rushing out of the kitchen and out the building. Jerry sighs again and already regrets his decision.

Jerry has reluctantly let Gerbera has joined the PIZZA PARTY

- They are annoying and smug

- Will come up with some ideas now and then (though take their advice with a grain of salt)(advice will not add extra points to HELP or SABOTAGE Jerry)

- may or may not help Jerry depending on the circumstances

- They’ll be a witness to whatever happens to Jerry during the pizza delivery

- It will be harder to recruit Harmon and Vincent with Gerbera in the PIZZA PARTY

Has the following items

HAMMERSPACIAL DIMENSION:

- GERBERA DOLL: Just a toy of themself that they got from the secret santa event. Has a pullstring that talks about how great they are, and even sings!

- RADIO: Gerbera uses this mainly to dance in they’re costume.

- THE ZA COSTUME: Dress up as :pizzid:’s mascot!

- MACE: Got it from working a second job as a royal guard in another quest. Good for bonking, hitting home runs, and may cause clothing damage for some reason. Gerbera would rather only use it if their life is in danger and will otherwise take a really good reason to attack someone with it to protect the pizza.

- A picture of SNOWPEA: It depicts a female bee. Gerbera takes this wherever they go, feeling that a little bit of her is with them cheering them on.

POCKET:

-Wallet (contains their bank card, drivers license, insurance card, 50 ₵A$H, their business card)

- keys to their home

- smart phone


Jerry hears Antonio's voice from inside the pizza box

Antonio: are they gone yet?
Antonio: Just so you know, my powers will only work as long as only you hold the pizza box, or the pizza. It will not work if anybody else holds it, even if you’re nearby.


Jerry says Antonio doesn’t have to come up with an excuse to not to let Gerbera hold the pizza box. He completely understands.



Jerry leaves the building with the pizza, and finds Gerbera has already set up the sidecar on the scooter, and seems to be playing with some kind of plush toy… wait a minute… IT’S MI MARY!

Gerbera: Wow! This toy is probably the most interactive I’ve ever seen!
Mary: Uhhh, please put me down… I’m supposed to be waiting for Jerry.
Mary: errr… that is, if you want? Sorry for being bossy.
Gerbera: Whoa! She’s programed to know certain people?! what a technologically advanced toy this is!
Gerbera: This one must belong to Jerry. I didn’t even know he was into toys.
Mary: Umm… oh my…
Mary: N… not to rudely call you out for your mistakes, I understand you didn’t mean to…
Mary: but I actually identify as male… but I understand if you want to call me female Mr. giant flower
Gerbera: and I’m not male… nor female!
Mary: s… sorry. I should also point out I’m not a toy,
Mary: I’m actually a stuffed animal, a fur-kin…
Gerbera: Stuffed animal, toy… same thing!
Mary: And umm… wait, did you say that I belong to Jerry?
Mary: Wow…
Mary: Imagine that…
Mary: NO WAIT! He is my boss! And I need to wait for him!
Gerbera: Ah, don’t worry about that, he is my bud! and he should be on his way. I’ll return you to him when he gets here.
Gerbera: A friend of Jerry is a friend of mine!
Mary: Oh, you’re friends… umm… okay… I guess I can wait here with you then…
Gerbera: Ha ha ha! This toy is so fluffy and adorable, I just want to hug and cuddle it!
Mary: H-h-h-hugs! Cuddles?! Uhhh, wait, hold on! W… we just met!
Mary: Shouldn’t we, like, umm… get to know each other or something?!
Mary: At least go on a date before we do something so lewd?
Gerbera: Uh… wait, what?


Jerry doesn’t know why he let this go on for this long, so he walks up to Gerbera and Mary, and gives a cough to get their attention

Gerbera: Hi, Jerry! Hi! You dropped your doll!
Mary: Boss! Thank goodness.
Mary: Is everyone in your world giants… now that I realize it, you’re giant too…
Mary: I had to wait for somebody to open the door to leave since I had trouble pulling the door, I was too small


Jerry gives Gerbera a quick rundown about who and what Mary is, and where he came from.

Gerbera: OH! So sorry, Mary. I thought you were a toy…
Gerbera: All object people who are plushies in our world are about our size, and I confused you for a toy considering how small you were.
Mary: s… so mean…
Mary: but it makes me wonder why I didn’t retain my size after coming here…
Mary: or did I shrink upon coming here?
Mary: or did Jerry grow?


Jerry theorizes that maybe traveling between his world and Mary’s world, the universes makes them take a form that is most suitable for the environment they’re in. He also is relieved that the trousers from the closet Mary is wearing is a one size fits all, able to adjust to Mary's small size

Mary: oh… so confusing.
Mary: So what are we doing, boss? You told me to wait outside, but didn’t tell me what we’re doing.
Gerbera: We’re delivering a pizza from our :pizzid: restaurant to a customer!
Mary: OH! One of those giant cookie pizzas? I’ll help with the best of my abilities!


Jerry says it’s not exactly the kind of pizza he’s thinking of, but to not worry too much about it. He puts on his helmet, starts up the moped and drives off.

The drive so far is pretty normal. There is some traffic, but that’s to be expected for the start of RUSH HOUR. Jerry is sure the traffic will pick up even more later.

Mary is amazed by Jerry’s moped as he has never seen, let alone ridden on one before. Jerry can tell that Mary is at a loss for words on the new sights he is seeing that isn’t in his world. His world isn’t as technologically advanced as Jerry’s, and doesn’t even have the same high quality materials that Jerry’s world has. he can see Mary’s spark of wonder in his eyes. Before too long, curiosity overtakes Mary and he begins asking a lot of questions about Jerry’s world. Thankfully Gerbera was there to explain things to Mary and how things work so Jerry can focus on driving the moped.

The drive brings them to EXTRA CHEDDAR PARK… or it would have… if it weren’t for an annoying WILD MOTHER GOOSE with her offspring crossing the road! Some jerk in a car is also pretty close behind Jerry, so he can’t move the moped out and make a detour.

Mary: Whoa! PAPERLINGS
Gerbera: PAPERLINGS? Those are cute little geese! What’s a paperling?
Mary: Oh, sorry… they’re so wildlike, they reminded me of paperlings…
Mary: they’re from my world and are made of paper, shaped kind of like us fur-kin, but much wilder…
Gerbera: OH! You mean like Origami? I can make something like that, one that flies!


Jerry explains to Gerbera that paper airplanes are not animals.

Gerbera: they’re still considered origami!

The mother goose hisses as it walks by.

Gerbera: awwe, look at the cute little baby geese!
Gerbera: Lets wait for them to cross!
Mary: huh? I thought we were going to hunt them!
Gerbera: Noooooo! Don’t hurt the little guys!


Jerry rolls his eyes at this and decides to just wait for them to pass.

WTF!?! Well It’s been 30 minutes (but thankfully not 30 updates), and they’re still passing by… just how many eggs did this mother goose lay?



Gerbera is still watching the geese with fondness while Mary had fallen asleep. Jerry had enough and decides to get everyone’s attention. He explains that it seems like they are in a SITUATION, and they’ll need to find a way out of this situation before it becomes a PROBLEM

Gerbera: I propose we wait. They’re only baby geese, let’s be polite and wait for all of them to pass!
Gerbera: So cute!
Mary: I don’t know, we’ve been waiting for a long time already, it feels like there is no end in sight.
Mary: And they do look delicious…
Gerbera: What?! Come on…


Jerry looks towards where the baby geese is coming from, and confirms that the line is just not ending. It’s decided that they’ll need to find a way to get past the geese, while considering the car behind them is too close to turn around and make a detour.

Mary asks to be let off the moped and Gerbera drops him gently onto the street. He then takes out his clipboard, looks through Jerry’s items, and does some calculations and measurements with his arms and hands. He was going to look through Gerbera’s items, but they refused stating he didn’t want to take part in disturbing the geese.

Mary: hmm…
Mary: Okay!
Mary: looking through our items, I think I got a calculation on how effective each item will be if you decide to use one to help us through.
Mary: otherwise, you can save them for something else. I’m sure the items we have could be used against something much worse than the geese here honestly


Gerbera: Nope. Not gonna have a part in this! I’d rather you leave them alone and be patient[/b]

YOU ARE NOW IN YOUR FIRST OFFICIAL SITUATION. Lets go over how this works one more time as a refresher:

- During that SITUATION, suggesters can either vote to HELP Jerry out of the SITUATION, and suggest how he can get out of the situation, or suggesters can vote to SABOTAGE the situation, and suggest how he’ll be SABOTAGED.

- Even if you cast your vote to HELP Jerry, you are allowed to also suggest an idea to SABOTAGE, just in case your HELP vote did not win (though it will not be counted as a SABOTAGE vote).

- likewise, even if you cast your vote to SABOTAGE Jerry, you can also suggest an idea on how to HELP Jerry in case your SABOTAGE vote did not win (though it will not be counted as a HELP vote).

- You cannot suggest an idea on how to kill Jerry unless otherwise stated

-after enough time have passed, I will tally up the votes and add those numbers to two 6-sided dices, one dice for HELPING Jerry, and another for SABOTAGING Jerry. The dice with the highest number + votes, wins.

- for example, if HELP gets 5 votes, and SABOTAGE gets 3, I will roll a D6 + 5votes for Help, and roll a D6 + 3votes for SABOTAGE, and the highest number will determine if Jerry gets out of a SITUATION, or if the SITUATION becomes a PROBLEM, and will pick suggesters’ ideas as to how Jerry will get out of the SITUATION, or how he ends up in a PROBLEM

- When SABOTAGE wins, the SITUATION becomes a PROBLEM. When this occurs, Jerry will have to waste one update trying to get out of the PROBLEM.

- Sometimes, another SITUATION can occur while Jerry is having a PROBLEM, in which another vote will occur where he can escape the PROBLEM and continue on his way to his destination, or have another UPDATE wasted.

-NEW RULE: Using and item will add more than one point to a help or sabotage. Someone like Mary will let you know the number of points each item will give for HELP and SABOTAGE by using it a certain way

-NEW RULE: If you have an idea of how to use an item different from what Mary thought up, you will still get extra points for using an item, though you won’t know how many points. Be creative.

- NEW RULE: Antonio the spirit of leftover pizza can help by opening the :pizzid: pizza box to summon him for a guarantee of 7 points to the HELP score, but it will lower the temperature of the pizza going from HOT to WARM to COLD to FREEZING. It is possible to maintain heat by giving Antonio leftovers


Options

- HELP JERRY (come up with an idea how if you vote this. You can also write up a SABOTAGE idea in case HELP loses)

- SABOTAGE JERRY (Come up with an idea how if you vote this. You can also write up a HELP idea in case SABOTAGE loses)

-Use an Item:

Gerbera: sorry, I support the geese. I’m not letting you use my items
(it might take convincing to get Gerbera to cooperate.)

1. PIZZA BOMB
Mary: hmmm… well it might clear a path, maybe scare the geese away, or blow them out of the way… but we’d be pretty close to the explosion and it’ll likely ruin the Moped, and ruin the vehicle of the person behind us, making them pretty mad.
HELP: 2 SABOTAGE: 5

2. STALE LEFTOVERS
Mary: We can probably distract the oncoming baby geese by dropping a bunch of leftovers on the floor… Theres not a lot to distract them for long though
Mary: you might also want to save the leftovers for negotiations.
Antonio: you could probably save the leftovers for me and for later if you want my help and maintain the heat of the pizza

HELP: 3

3. PURR FECKT’S PURSE
Mary: I think maybe there is some perfume that the geese won’t like the smell of and will repel them… but… what if there is something the geese actually get attracted to? I don’t know your species real well, or your perfumes, so I’m just guessing off of my own knowledge about PAPERLING…
Mary: I also have a bad feeling about using her purse… Something tells me something real good might happen if we return it to her without using it beforehand.

HELP: 5 SABOTAGE: 2

4. ILLEGAL POWDERED DONUT
Mary:If you eat this, You might be able to use its prescience to know exactly when to drive forward quickly through a gap in the line without harming anyone…
Mary: Just remember you’ll crash into a sugar coma in the next UPDATE

HELP: 5

5. Tasty Decoy Cardboard Pizza
Mary: This should be able to distract the geese long enough for you to pass. Though maybe it will be better to use it to trick someone who is more of a threat to your life or pizza?
HELP: 5

Mary: I don’t really know how the items in your pocket will help currently. (wallet, smart phone, notebook paper, moped keys, lighter) Sorry.

-Get Antonio’s help (7 HELP POINTS) (Lower Pizza Temperature if you don’t give him STALE LEFTOVERS)

Antonio: Really? You’re considering to use my help… on some geese? I guess I could do that, but don’t you think I’m more suited for more harder serious SITUATIONS?


Message from PEA: Finally, the countdown begins. I hope you'll all have fun with this. Be creative!

I just want to say, do NOT worry about failing to deliver the pizza. No matter what happens, I aim to make the ending and epilogue as satisfying as it can be so you won't have to worry about failure. This quest is more about the journey than the destination.

Have Gerbera and Mary block the ducklings to clear a path. Drive through the area. Slowly.

I'm going to suggest an early SABOTAGE with an idea on how to HELP going wrong.

Draw a stop sign on Mary's clipboard and have him stand in front of the geese like a crossing guard, breaking up their march. He succeeds!... but there are still a lot of little geese coming up to the sidewalk, and with the unexpected break making them crash and fall over each other... Well, let's just say that a line quickly becomes a pile, which becomes a TIDAL WAVE of little geese that sweeps up Jerry and the others.

No. 1020595 ID: 8b82ee

Use the decoy pizza as a makeshift ramp to jump over the obstacle. Or we can go with plan B which involves eating the pizza.

I think it’d be cute for Mary to make a stop sign, for you to cross, and then the next update be you are being chased by a tidal wave of ducks

So help, but the next updates challenge is harder

Now, look. I could suggest something smart, or clever, or something likely to work.

But Mary acting as a crossing guard with goslings is just too cute to pass up. So let's use the clipboard (not an item) and a PIZZID had to imitate a crossing guard and clear the way for Jerry. (HELP)

rolled 6, 3, 5 = 14

Message from PEA: OKAY, so I counted FOUR votes for HELP and TWO votes for SABOTAGE.

Once the six sided dices are rolled, I will add the votes to the results. the first dice will be HELP, the second dice will be SABOTAGE, the third dice will help me decide what I want to eat for dinner tonight and has nothing to do with this quest. please ignore that one.

No. 1020786 ID: e51896

Message from PEA: And HELP WINS this time with 10 HELP POINTS > 5 SABOTAGE POINTS. The votes are locked in and you can no longer vote, BUT you can still suggest ideas on what will happen. If you previously suggested an idea for how Jerry gets SABOTAGED, you can still suggest an idea for how Jerry gets HELPED getting passed the army of goslings

I'll try to get the update done this weekend

Jerry regrets not taking the stop sign from the closet earlier, but he shrugs that thought off and comes up with a compromise by ordering Gerbera to draw a quick doodle of a stop sign, and having both of his PIZZA PARTY members block the Gosling traffic with the picture.

Gerbera: Awwwwww, but then the little geese won’t be able to catch up with their mother!

Jerry is frustrated, but comes up with a rebuttal that with that many goslings, and because of mandates the mayor has placed on the city to not harm the geese, CRUST CITY will be overrun with goose overpopulation due to them not having predators keeping their numbers in check and ruining natural selection or something like that. Besides, the mother goose isn’t going to miss like, what? A thousand goslings out of ten thousand?

Mary: Yeah, and we got a job to do too.
Mary: One with a strict deadline!
Mary: It’s a shame we can’t grab one to eat though…
Mary: Thinking logically, how is a goose able to have that many offspring? That does not make sense… this world is weird… like… super weird!
Gerbera: Huh?
Mary: AHG! Ah! Nothing… sorry, sorry… just culture shock, eh heh heh…


Jerry explains to Gerbera that being a pizza delivery flower will mean coming up with tough decisions like this from time to time, and requires sacrifice.

Gerbera: I don’t know… I really have a feeling we should wait…
Gerbera: But… *sigh* fiiiiiine, we’ll block the way.
Gerbera: Please forgive me little goslings


Gerbera is handed Mary’s clipboard and Gerbera uses it to draw a quick doodle of a stop sign. The two then exit the moped, and walks towards where the sidewalk and street meets as the goslings cross. Gerbera unenthusiastically picks up Mary high enough for the goslings to see with an eye roll while Mary holds up the doodle of the stop sign. The incoming Goslings stop in their tracks.

Gosling #5275: Chirp? (Uhhh… what are these weirdos doing?)
Gosling #3053: Chirp? (And what are they holding?)
Gosling #6031: Chirp, (No idea, it looks like some kind of large shape with symbols inside of it)
Gosling #1034: CHIRP!? (WHAT DOES IT MEAN!?!)
Gosling #5275: Chirp. (Don’t these dumbasses know that wild animals like us have no concept of reading?)
Gosling #6031: Hiss! (Oh Honking hell, they didn’t figure out our war plans to take over the pond against the ducks, have they?!)
Gosling #6031: Chirp… (I knew having all us gosling follow general Honky Tongue all at once was a bad idea…)
Gosling #6031: Chirp… (we should have waited until we had more generals to follow…)
Gosling #5275: Chirp. (Relax, the citizens of this city are all idiots. Besides, our ally the mayor has issued the citizens not to hunt geese. We should be fine.)
Gosling #3053: Chirp? (I don’t know, that drawing they’re holding is giving me bad vibes… is it a warning? A threat? Directions on how to win the war against the ducks?)
Gosling #3053: Chirp. (I really think we should try to figure this out before we continue…. Just in case.)
Gosling # 1034: CHIRP! (I AGREE, I’M FREAKING OUT HERE! SO SCARY! AAAAAAHHHHHH!


And so, goslings have stopped in their tracks not because the picture told them to, but because it caused a debate among the gosling. It doesn’t matter either way as Jerry is able to slowly move his moped past the Goslings. Once Jerry makes it across, Gerbera, and Mary hop back into the side car, dropping the picture on the way. Jerry’s PIZZA PARTY and the vehicle behind him continue on their way, getting themselves out of that SITUATION.

Meanwhile, the goslings are still debating over the dropped picture, causing the incoming goslings to climb onto each other forming a pile. If they do not figure out this puzzle soon and are not careful, the GOSLING PILE could become a GOSLING TIDAL WAVE in a few updates! Or maybe not… guess we’ll find out later.

As Jerry drives through EXTRA CHEDDAR PARK, he can here Mary cheering up the frustrated Gerbera.

Mary: Don’t worry about it, Gerbera,
Mary: if those goslings were smart enough to understand that sign meant stop,
Mary: they should be smart enough to understand where they are supposed to go to catch up with their mother.
Gerbera: I suppose. Sorry, it’s just that, they were so cute!


Mary looks over at the park they are driving past.

Mary: Yeah. And besides, I don’t see any dangerous predators in this pa-

Mary stops in the middle of his conversation as his mouth goes agape and eyes widen.

Gerbera: Uh…. Hey Mary, hey! are You okay?

Mary in response pounces upon Jerry’s head, causing him to swerve a little, but managing to keep control. Jerry demands to know what is Mary’s deal as Mary takes a better look at the park, tail wagging furiously.

Mary: B-b-b-b-boss…
Mary: …
Mary: Please tell me I’m not seeing things…
Mary: But…
Mary: Are those trees over there…
Mary: MADE OF FLUFFING WOOD?!?!
Mary: excuse the language…


Jerry can hear Mary panting intensely, and thinks he can feel him… trembling? He confirms that all trees if not most are indeed made of wood and asks Mary to calm the fuck down. He hopes Mary isn’t planning on marking his territory on one of those trees. That’d be disgusting.

Mary: Y-y-you don’t understand, boss!
Mary: I know you haven’t been in my world long…
Mary: But in my world, wood is a rare valuable resource that can only be found through mining!
Mary: I came from a mining town that used to be rich with wood before most of it was depleted, causing our town to pretty much struggle to survive.
Mary: And you’re telling me wood… LITERALLY GROWS ON TREES HERE!?!
Gerbera: YEP! And not only that, but we have different kinds of wood here too!
Gerbera: Cedar, Birch, Hickory, Larch, Maple, Spruce, Willow, Pine, Rubber,


Jerry stops Gerbera, explaining he thinks Mary got the point already.

Mary: WHOA! Y-you’re that abundant with wood here that you have different types of wood?!
Gerbera: *shrugs* Pretty much, I mean, hardware stores sell them each and every day by the hundreds and at various sizes. Contractors use them to build stuff like homes.
Gerbera: No biggie really.
Mary: I… I think I’m going to faint…


Jerry hands Mary over to Gerbera as they calm Mary down. Jerry He thinks he can practically see the beads in his eyes (Mary’s plush world’s form of currency)

Gerbera: soooo… if trees aren’t made of wood from your world, what are they made of?
Mary: Plastic! That includes other plants like bushes.
Gerbera: awwwww, and I thought it would be gold…
Gerbera: but wait, isn’t everything being plastic like, bad for the environment?
Mary: How so?
Gerbera: well, it’s just that…


Jerry coughs, and tells Gerbera not to cause existential dread to the poor poodle regarding plastic’s effects on the environment.

Mary: You have no idea how big of a deal this is…
Mary: Imagine if I can just take a bunch of wood from your hardware store, and take a bunch of seeds from different kinds of trees…
Mary: I can sell the wood, make enough to buy farmland, maybe hire some guards and other farmers to help if I have any leftover, and own a wooden tree farm to sell more wood to the world!
Mary: This explains so much actually.
Mary: Because of your world’s abundance of wood,
Mary: You all have endless supply of magic to develop such an advanced civilization
Mary: I’m So jealous!
Gerbera: Eh? Magic?
Mary: uh… yeah? I mean… everyone knows magic comes from wood? We use them for shaman spells, and healing and stuff.
Gerbera: What?
Gerbera: There’s no magic in trees…
Gerbera: Magic is fake here!
Gerbera: All the things we built, it’s all thanks to technology!
Mary:…
Mary:…oh…


Mary’s tail stops wagging and the passion in his eyes is lost. But only after that brief moment, he picks himself back up again, tail wagging again, and eye full of spark, albeit not as intense

Mary: Well… that’s okay.
Mary: Even if this world’s wood doesn’t have magic
Mary: They should still be pretty valuable to make materials out of without its magic at least.
Mary: Might even help with the magical wood supplies by getting people to only use mined wood only for magic, and tree wood only for building stuff to better supply shamans.
Mary: But… maybe because it has no magic, maybe we shouldn’t call it wood…
Gerbera: In our world, we have a material that looks like our valuable gold that tricks many miners.
Gerbera: They nickname it “fool’s gold”.
Gerbera: Hope that inspires you!
Mary: Okay, it’s decided! I’ll call it “fool’s wood” then!
Gerbera: *snicker*


Jerry informs Mary maybe that name isn’t such a good idea

Mary: Huh? Why?

Jerry remembers the biology of Plush don’t apply here, and decides to drop the topic.

Mary: Boss, at some point, I would like to bring a bunch of wood back to my world.

Mary grasps his hands together like he’s praying, begging for Jerry’s help

Mary: Can you please help a stuffie like me with this favor?
Mary: I feel like I may have finally found a purpose back at home if I do this.
Mary: I mean, working with you have given me purpose on its own right...
Mary: But to be able to potentially make a difference and bring our world into the ‘wooden age’ and
Mary: To finally feel important…
Mary: be important…
Mary: Oooooohhh… Sorry… I’m getting sentimental again… *sniffle*
Mary: Just... May you help me with this… Please boss? Jerry?
Mary:…
Mary: sorry for begging.


Jerry explains that in order to do that, he’ll have to talk to Purr Feckt as she was part of the trial that sent him to Mary’s world in the first place, and convincing her might not be easy considering he has a criminal record on him now.

Mary: Hmm… I’m sure we can convince her in some way. Maybe if we return her purse?

Jerry thinks that might work, but will have to think hard about how to approach convincing her… if he crosses her path that is

MARY HAS GIVEN YOU A SIDEQUEST: Convince Purr Feckt to kick Mary out of this quest and bring him back into his own quest where he belongs! (with wood! And tree seeds!)

The conversation ends as Jerry comes to a stoplight. Annoying, but not enough to cause a SITUATION. They spend the time explaining to Mary why they stopped, informing him about traffic safety. Eventually, the topic changes to discussion on the customer

Gerbera: Hey! I forgot to ask, who are we delivering this pizza to?

Jerry explains the customer, and what the order was, and where it is.

Gerbera: Ohhhh, so it’s that kind of order
Gerbera: Lucky for you.
Gerbera: but I’m a flower, so it might not interest me as much


Jerry is confused by that just as he was when his uncle was vague about what this order is all about. He was about to ask when suddenly he hears a familiar dreadful voice yelling out to him,

???: I SEE, SO THAT IS WHERE YOU’RE HEADING…
???: HOW ABOUT MAKING A PIT STOP OVER HERE FIRST, GUY?

Jerry turns his head and see’s… Eugene the green pizza rat, leaning against the streetlight pole, yelling in the distance. This jerk has constantly bullied Jerry for his pizza whenever he is out delivering, and has even stolen his pizza in the past from time to time. As quickly as Jerry’s brain registered Eugene was there, he immediately turns his head back towards the streetlight pretending he isn’t there

Eugene: HEY GUY!
Eugene: I’M TALKING TO YOU!
Eugene: WANNA SELL ME SOME ZA?
Gerbera: Certainly, my good sir!
Gerbera: We can help you over at the :pizzid: Pizzeria over down the street.
Gerbera: What would you like.


Jerry whispers to Gerbera to shut up and stop giving Eugene attention, to pretend he isn’t there. Gerbera looks at Jerry with confusion.

Eugene grins a toothy smile.

Eugene: THANK YOU GUY!
Eugene: YOU’RE SUCH A GOOD EMPLOYEE, LITTLE FLOWER…
Eugene: UNLIKE THAT POSER OVER THERE! *points at Jerry*

Eugene: I GOTTA COUPON FOR A FIVE FINGER DISCOUNT…
Eugene: IF YA KNOW WHAT I MEAN!

[b]Gerbera: We don’t have chicken fingers as a side dish, sorry sir.


Jerry tells Gerbera to stop being stupid and tells them about Eugene being a thief
Gerbera: Ohhhh…
Gerbera: …
Gerbera: AAAAAHHH!!! WE’RE BEING MUGGED!
Mary: D… don’t worry Gerbera, I-I managed to assess the situation, and might have some solutions if we decide to use an item to escape. I’ll try to keep calm while I give my analysis
Mary: s-so scary…



Jerry curses at the stoplight not changing, and decides to get a rundown on what Mary has to get them out of this situation. Gerbera has agreed to also allow Jerry to use their items.

Gerbera: I can take care of the thief with my items if you want!


1. PIZZA BOMB
Mary: We can probably light the bomb, and give it to him like it’s a regular pizza… we just have to hope he doesn’t see the lit fuse, or he might throw it back at us… maybe his hair will obstruct his view? This might make him angrier at us if we come across him again though…
HELP: 5 SABOTAGE: 3

2. STALE LEFTOVERS
Mary: We might be able to get away with him taking our stale pizza
Mary: But he might come after us if he realizes it’s stale.
Mary: But I have a feeling he doesn’t care
Antonio: You’ll won’t have the ability to keep the pizza temperature stable if you summon me without this.

HELP: 5 SABOTAGE: 1

3. PURR FECKT’S PURSE
Mary: I theorize that because he is wearing a coat in this weather, he cares more about his fashion than his comfort
Mary: Maybe there is some makeup he’d be interested in here to trade our freedom with?
Mary: Although… I really really hope we DON’T rummage through Purr Feckt’s purse
Mary: considering we could use this to potentially help get the coordinates back to my world

HELP: 3

4. ILLEGAL POWDERED DONUT
Mary: If you eat this, You could probably predict his moves before he lands them if he attacks you or tries to grab the pizza
Mary: If you are alright with having a sugar coma next UPDATE that is.

HELP: 5

5. TASTY DECOY CARDBOARD PIZZA
Mary: We should be able to get away pretty easily by tricking him the cardboard pizza is the pizza we’re delivering.
Mary: He might be angrier and more determined if we come across him again and he realizes it wasn’t pizza

HELP: 6 SABOTAGE: 1

6. JERRY’S/GERBERA’S WALLET (30 ₵A$H from Jerry, 50 ₵A$H from Gerbera)
Mary: Do you think he’ll take a bribe to let us go by giving him some ₵A$H?
HELP: 2

7. GERBERA DOLL
Mary: I don’t think this will help
Gerbera: Sure it will! it has a pull-string that will let him listen to me sing!
Mary: I think it’ll annoy him…

Sabotage: 6

8. RADIO
Mary: Maybe we’ll be lucky and find a song he’ll really like, and get distracted dancing to it? But what if it’s a song he hates?
Help: 3 Sabotage: 3 (depends on what genre of music you guess Eugene likes)

9. THE ZA COSTUME
Mary: Maybe we can pretend it’s a giant pizza and give it to him? He might find out though.
Gerbera: But then Jerry won’t have a job dressing up as THE ZA! We gotta think about Jerry’s career after all!

Jerry glares at Gerbera
HELP 4 SABOTAGE: 4

10. MACE
Mary: We can probably threaten him to leave us alone with this
Gerbera: I don’t want to hurt anyone unless he tries to kill us… I might need a strong poker face to make sure he doesn’t catch on I’m not actually going to hurt him.
Gerbera: But if I have to attack, I’m only going for minor damages… probably can’t say the same for his clothes unfortunately. He might get angrier instead of shamed though

No. 1021259 ID: 629f2e

Swing that Mace as he nears for critical clothing damage and then drive away in a hurry. Go for the pants and or shoes, the jacket would probably just piss him off, but those might slow him down. If this HELPS, we drive through with him shouting up a storm behind us.

If it fails, and this winds up a SABOTAGE (My preference, don't wanna make things too easy for us :p), I think our plan's greatest flaw was the failure to consider our escape route. We still have a red light, and cars start driving through forcing us to wait. Right here. With the guy we just pissed off.

Whoops. Guess we either need to make a detour now, make some risky driving maneuvers, or fight with Eugene to either the death or, if we're going by Chinz rules, to the nudity.

Jerry backs up the moped to get some space, being the only one in his lane, only for Eugene to step out in front of us! ... Then the light turns green.

Let's see how Eugene likes the "no f*cks given, no sh*t taken" version of Jerry. If he likes pizza so much, maybe he should spend a hot minute as street-pizza!

You politely ask Eugene to move two steps to the left, and then turn your moped to run him over comically, it works every time!

> sabotage
You go to do that but he holds out his hand and, oh no! The bikes out of power, Eugene then reveals he timed it all perfectly! Knowing you would run out of power today and couldn’t give him another “tattoo” which he then lifts his shirt to reveal tire marks from the like 3 other times you’ve tricked him this way.

You then have to explain about your nemesis

No. 1021273 ID: 094652

Help Vote: Eugene immediately scarfs down the pizza bomb, fuse and all, preventing it from exploding. However, the toxic chemicals of the bomb seep through, causing him to vomit for hours and (temporarily) swear off pizza.

Sabotage Idea: Eugene immediately gives the pizza bomb to his starving little sister, who loses three teeth and an eighth of her jaw from the explosion. Eugene swears vengeance and Jerry's party suffers lowered overall affinity for accidentally mutilating a little girl.

Meanwhile, the goslings’ examination and debate over the drawing the PIZZA PARTY dropped is still in full swing while the incoming goslings continue to grow GOSLING PILE! Hopefully they can get this resolved before two or three of updates pass, or some kind of SITUATION may occur… Or maybe it’ll be fine, who knows?

Also, a mysterious convertible passes by at a fast speed towards Jerry’s direction, distracting the goslings a little bit, only acknowledging the vehicle with a simple glance before continuing their heated debate over the mysterious drawing.

Jerry weighs his options, but not for too long. He has dealt with Eugene enough times to know how he thinks. Though he is a very determined rat, he has a one-track mind when it comes to getting what he wants. So as Eugene gets closer to the moped, Jerry grabs pizza box laying behind him which was buckled securely in place, holds it out over the moped’s handles, and asks Eugene to move, like, a little to the left, in front of the moped as he can’t hand his pizza over with the side car being in the way. Eugene complies and moves to the spot where Jerry suggested him to be.

Eugene: hee hee hee hee… Thanks guy!
Eugene: After all our scuffles and monotonous chases in the past
Eugene: You finally learned your place as an employee…
Eugene: That is, being the customer’s bitch!
Mary: You’re no customer! You’re just a dirty scoundrel!
Gerbera: Hey Jerry, hey! What are you doing?! That isn’t his!
Eugene: I’ll admit I’m a bit disappointed you gave up that easily.
Eugene: Would have been nice to have some fun to make this more rewarding…
Eugene: But only a bit, I’m just glad to finally get my hands on some sweet sweet za without any headaches!
Eugene: I’ll be taking that, thanks!


Eugene eagerly reaches for the pizza Jerry is handing over, practically drooling over the smell of the pizza. But just as he grabs it…

The weight of the Moped has now rendered Eugene as flat as a pancake as Jerry drives off in the distance.

Eugene: Ow… I really should have saw that one coming…
Eugene: Where did they said they’re heading again?
Eugene: MARINATION UNIVERSITY?
Eugene: hee hee… No problem, I’ll just take a shortcut to EXTRA CHEEZE STREET, assess where that guy is heading…

With that SITUATION out of the way, the PIZZA PARTY continues their quest to deliver the pizza. The street enlarges as there are now two lanes for Jerry to drive on towards his destination, plenty of space. All they need to do is continue down this road, cross a bridge (which is known for being heavy with traffic due to it being rush hour right now) and then continue down the next road until they reach their FIRST CHECKPOINT at the CAR OVEN, a multistory car park building where Jerry needs to park his moped to recharge its power, and then walk/run the rest of the way to MARINATION UNIVERSITY since there is no parking at the university. It seems like smooth sailing from here!

Gerbera: Wow…
Gerbera: That SITUATION was intense!
Gerbera: So bud, you go through SITUATIONS like that EVERY pizza delivery?


At last! It looks like Gerbera is understanding the heavy weight a pizza delivery guy has to carry during each run. Jerry nods, telling Gerbera this isn’t even the worst they’d go through during a delivery.

Gerbera is lost in thought.

Gerbera: Wow… that is…
Gerbera: Intense…


Jerry smirks, it is starting to look like Gerbera is having second thoughts on his new job, and Jerry can potentially continue being a pizza deliverer for just a bit longer if Gerbera refuses the position!

Gerbera: Intensely thrilling!
Gerbera: Jerry! That was fun!
Gerbera: I loved the way you tricked that rat!
Gerbera: He was all like: ‘MAKE ME A PIZZA’
Gerbera: And you were like: ‘OKAY!’
Gerbera: And then you flattened him into a pizza!
Gerbera: And although I’m still a bit disappointed we had to keep the goslings away from their mother
Gerbera: I am still impressed by that solution you came up with, that was smart!
Gerbera: And you do stuff like that every day! That’s RAD!
Gerbera: I so cannot wait to go on these thrilling adventures like you did when I start delivering pizzas!


DAMN IT! It actually looks like Gerbera is enjoying this and is more interested in the job than before! What a weirdo!
It seems like if Jerry wants to get Gerbera disinterested in the job, he might have to face some PROBLEMS during a SITUATION to really scare Gerbera away… but does he really want to do that? He still needs to impress his uncle with this pizza delivery to save his position after all.

His thought process is cut short by the sound of a loud vehicle speeding towards behind them followed by a loud yell

???: ARRRR MATEYS!
???: SHIP, HO!
???: TREASURE BE AFOOT, CREW!
???: LET US INVADE AND PLUNDER THEIR BOOTY!


Jerry looks over and sees a convertible catching up to them in the other lane. Within the convertible is a male parrot in a pirate crew outfit driving the vehicle, a female opossum in a pirate captain uniform standing off her car seat as she points her sword at Jerry, and sees what he thinks is another opossum in the back seat looking very irritated. Jerry has never seen these people before in his life.

Opossum Captain: GIVE CHASE ME FIRST MATE!
Opossum Captain: TRY AND CATCH UP TO THEM SO I CAN SWING ONTO THEIR SHIP, SLASH THEIR TIRES…
Opossum Captain: Er… I mean sail…
Opossum Captain: That they have at the bottom of their ship for some reason… Uhh… how does that work?
Parrot Pirate: *SQUAWK!* MAGIC SHIP! MAGIC SHIP!
Opossum Captain: Ah, yeah, thanks!
Opossum Captain: I’LL SLASH THEIR SOURCE OF MAGIC, AND WE’LL ALL PILLAGE THEIR SHIP!
Parrot Pirate: PILLAGE THEIR SHIP! PILLAGE THEIR SHIP! *SQUAWK!*
Irritated Opossum: Ugh… Sis, this is so embarrassingly stupid!
Opossum Captain: SILENCE, YE PRISONER, OR YE WALK THE PLANK!
Irritated Opossum: I swear, Pam, ever since your boyfriend gotten you into playing pretend, your screws have been loosening more and more every single day.
Cassandra: ARR, DON’T YE BE TALKING TO ME FIRST MATEY BLAKE LIKE THAT! AND WE BE LARPING, NOT PRETENDING!
Blake: REAL PIRATES, REAL PIRATES *SQUWAK!*
Pam: Uhhh… oops. I mean, YEAH, WE BE REAL PIRATES, NOT PRETENDING
Pam: NOW SIT TIGHT, AND SHUT UP, WE’VE GOT TREASURE TO LOOT, DAN!


Dan sinks in his chair, trying to make himself invisible.

Dan: you know, It’s bad enough you took my ambient ocean sound CD to play ocean sounds on your radio…
Dan: but this is too far…
Dan: Why the fuck did I ask you to pick me up from college?!
Dan: And on the last day too?!

Jerry groans and tries to pick up speed to get away from the stupidness before it spreads further. However, the moped can only go so fast, and the convertible is able to easily catch up with them where it is now driving parallel to his moped. Pam yells out to them.

Pam: AVAST YE SHIP, YE LANDLUBBERS, OR WE SHALL GIVE NO QUARTER!
Blake: *SQAWK* GIVE NO QUARTER! GIVE NO QUARTER!

Dan: *sigh* Not interested in this. Going to scroll through my phone until you two idiots stop making a fool out of yourselves

So I'm voting sabotage, but not in a way that loses our pizza, in a funny way.

MARY will protect the ZA, he's the only one doing that

Jerry will be distracted and ask about his client

and Gerbera will pull out the doll, getting into the roleplaying.

Jerry just got so obsessed with making this perfect and isn't taking the pirate seriously so she probably gets upset and tries to take mary and the pizza hostage, thus making us see what a BAD SITUATION is.

No. 1021994 ID: 629f2e

Okay, so SABOTAGE first off. We deserve to have something go wrong.

Let's take that SIDEQUEST and ask about our customer. It'll make our interactions with her more interesting when he finally arrive. It's fun, do it plz.

As for HOW to sabotage, why not let Gerbera engage in a pirate duel with her mace. With her experience in Chinzebeth's army, Gerbera easily wins! Though she was only intending to do minor damage, a sudden change in speed causes a swing to go wide and clonk Pam out by mistake.

...And her car keeps going. In fact it rams straight into yours, and is only accelerating. Now you're being sped into a traffic jam, and need to find a way to break or get past it safely if you don't wanna crash.

Help Vote: Jerry just offers the pizza in complete submission. Having sucked the fun out of their merry pirating ways, the captain decides to head back home for a merry night of stale puffs and [insert lewd here].

Sabotage Idea: In their haste to seize the pizze, their car swerves to the side and hits the anthropomorphic personification of a water corporation, causing massive spills of sewage-infested water to spray everything around them. The only thing worse than getting the pizza hit with raw toilet water is getting sued for destroying valuable mineral water product.

This is no time to be waiting around to weigh his options, so with the first idea that comes to mind, Jerry orders Mary to protect the pizza while Gerbera guards the side of the bike so that no REAL PIRATES LARPERS pillage the moped

Mary: I’ll do my best, boss!
Gerbera: AWWW YEAH! This’ll be fun!


Gerbera pulls out their mace and gives Pam a playful glare, and adopts a medieval accent.

Gerbera: Stayeth backeth ye pirates!

Gerbera takes out the Gerbera plush doll and pulls the pull string before placing it on their shoulder like a parrot.

Gerbera plush: *hiccup*

Gerbera is on guard, ready to block any attacks from the side of the moped. Meanwhile, Mary hops over to the pizza box with the intention of protecting it with his entire body… unfortunately, the moped is going so fast, that Mary is trying to hold on to the pizza box which is buckled onto the moped for dear life, trying not to fall off the moped.

Mary: AHHHHHH!
Mary: BOSSSSS! SLOW DOOOOWN!

…Honestly Jerry doesn’t know why he did not expect this. Mary isn’t the same size he used to be in the plush world, so he is a lot weaker than he normally is… that isn’t to say he was already strong to begin with back in his world, the guy is a pushover. He sighs and slightly steps on the break in order to slow down for Mary’s sake. At the very least if he can’t go fast, he could try to get some information about the customer from Dan. He did say he was from college, and if Jerry is lucky, maybe he is from MARINATION UNIVERISTY and knows Ramona?

Jerry slows down to get to Dan’s level, distracting him from anything that is going on, and whistles to Dan to grab his attention.

Dan gets startled by the whistling and directs his attention towards Jerry.
Dan: Yeah? What?
Dan: This better be important
Dan: Because now is really not a very good time to talk… obviously.


Jerry just shrugs and explains that he’s been in so many SITUATIONS, that he’s learned to multitask.

Dan just leans his arm on the car door, resting his head on his hand without taking his eyes off Jerry, but he moves his phone in front of his face as well so he can sill mess with his phone while speaking with Jerry. It’s clear to see he isn’t all that invested.

Dan: My sympathies or whateves.
Dan: So get to the point, what do you want?


Jerry asks Dan if he is from MARINATION UNIVERSITY by chance and if he has heard of some bnuuy named ‘Ramona’.

Dan: Yes to the first question, no to the second.
Dan: The only bnuuy I know of is a nervous wallflower named Rachael.
Dan: I don’t know, maybe I misremembered her name or something and her name is really Ramona? Or maybe you heard her name wrong?
Dan: Eh… Doesn’t matter to me, I mean, she usually keeps to herself, never really talking or doing anything with the other students, so she never stood out to me to really remember her name.


Well, it’s not a really good lead, but it’s a lead nonetheless. Jerry asks if there is anything Dan remembers about the customer, such as likes or dislikes or hobbies she might have.

Dan: What? You’re trying to woo her or something?
Dan: Shouldn’t you be doing that like… during off hours?


Jerry quickly explains that he’s only asking because his job position is on the line, and he wants to make the delivery as perfect as he can for the customer so that he can impress his uncle enough to keep his delivery guy position.

Gerbera: Huh? What’s wrong with the mascot job?

Jerry tells Gerbera to forget about it and focus on his work.

Dan: Wow, pity about your job
Dan: Well, like I said, she doesn’t really stand out
Dan: In fact, I kind of already forgot she existed until you brought her up.
Dan: hmmm… But there is one thing I remember about her.
Dan: That Bnuuy LOVES bananas!
Dan: Seriously, I usually always see her bringing some to chow down on before class starts.
Dan: And she goes to town on them, slobbering them up.
Dan: There was even this one time she got like, a bundle of bananas
Dan: and instead of like, plucking one banana off the bundle and eating them one at a time
Dan: She instead peels each and every one of them, and puts them in her mouth all at once.


Jerry asks if she’s also interested in carrots

Dan: Wow, are you speciesist?
Dan: Just because that one legendary bnuuy comedian eats carrots all the time doesn’t mean all Bnuuys are obsessed with carrots
Dan: Bnuuys are actually obsessed with Bananas!


Jerry is about to point at the irony and hypocrisy of what Dan just said, but decides it’s not worth the effort.

Dan: Lemme guess, she ordered a pizza with banana toppings, didn’t she?

Jerry shakes his head in disagreement and explains what Ramona/Rachael actually ordered. Dan raises an eyebrow in response

Dan: Huh…
Dan: I didn’t think she was That kind of person.
Dan: No wait she’s a shy wallflower of a bnuuy, it’s not that unbelievable
Blake: *SQUAWK* SPECIESIST! SPECIESIST!
Dan: NONONO! I meant the shy wallflower part, not the bnuuy part!
Dan: Dammit!
Dan: What I’m saying is, it’s usually the quiet shy ones that are into doing risky stuff like that, isn’t it?


This again? Jerry still doesn’t know what people are talking about concerning the significance of this order. He’s about to ask what Dan means when Pam Interrupts

Pam: YAR! YE SCALLYWAGS DARE TO IGNORE US FOR SCUTTLEBUTT AND NOT TAKE US SERIOUSLY?!
Pam: I’LL MAKE YE WALK THE PLANK FOR THIS!
Pam: BLAKE, ME HEARTY, THE SEA BE SMOOTH ENOUGH NOW! GET CLOSER TO THEM SO I CAN JUMP ONTO THEIR SHIP
Pam: THEN, GET TO THE DUNGBIE OF THE SHIP AND AWAIT FOR ME TO AVAST THE SHIP!
Pam: I’LL SLASH THEIR TIRES… uhhh… wait not tires THEIR SOURCE OF ACCELERATION MAGIC!
Pam: Just gotta roll for dexterity first, hold on, just need to roll over a ten to see if I’ll make it

Pam rolls some dice and gets a 13 as Blake steers the car over to the moped’s side car. The crazy opossum then actually went and jumped from Blake’s convertible, and onto the moped’s sidecar. However, Gerbera was able to block Pam from going any further. Jerry is dumbfounded on how dedicated this larper is to her role as a pirate.

Gerbera: KEEPETH BACKETH THOU PIRATETH!
Gerbera: I am the knighteth gerbera,
Gerbera: Formereth championeth of the queeneth frometh anothereth universeth
Gerbera: and championeth of homeruneths
Gerbera: thou shalleth noteth taketh anothereth stepeth forwardeth!
Pam: AH! IT BE A LONG TIME SINCE I’VE TRADED BLOWS WITH A KNIGHT
Pam: EN GARDE, YE FLOWER
Gerbera: psst, hey, you can’t tell I’m a flower because I’m wearing a steel armored helmet
Pam: Ah, right, sorry. I forgot, thanks EN GARDE, YE SHARK BAIT!


Jerry tries to explain to Gerbera that just because Gerbera puts “eth” at the end of every word doesn’t mean it will make it medieval, it just makes him annoying, but he goes ignored as Gerbera and Pam proceeds to trade blows, parrying each other’s attacks.

The moped hits a bump on the road, causing Gerbera to accidentally swing their mace wide and critically hit Pam, making her lose her balance and fall

After Pam shoves right into Blake, he accidentally pushes the pedal to the metal, and loses grip on the steering wheel, losing control. The LARPERS I mean REAL PIRATES’ vehicle rams into the mope and pushes the PIZZA PARTY forward at high speed

Gerbera: YAHHHHHHHHHeth!
Mary: BOSS! WHAT DO WE DO!?
Mary: WE NEED TO FIND A WAY TO STOP OR GAIN CONTROL OF THE MOPED BEFORE WE CRASH INTO SOMETHING!
Mary: IF WE CRASH, I ESTIMATE A 25-50% CHANCE OUR VEHICLE WILL BE BROKEN
Mary: AND THEN WE’LL HAVE TO WALK THE REST OF THE WAY IF WE SURVIVE, WASTING MORE UPDATES!

This isn’t good. If Jerry’s moped is totaled, he will have to run the rest of the way to the FIRST CHECKPOINT, which will cause more chances to be in a SITUATION and waste more UPDATES.

Jerry is currently at UPDATE 4 and remembers that the PAR TIME to make it to the FIRST CHECKPOINT is 10. He estimates he might be in two more SITUATIONS on the way to the FIRST CHECKPOINT if he manages to gets out of this PROBLEM with the moped intact.
But if his moped breaks, he estimates he might run into 4 more SITUATIONS on his way to the FIRST CHECKPOINT if he can’t drive, which is REALLY cutting it close to his par time, especially if one of those SITUATIONS becomes a PROBLEM.

WHOOPS! Wrong quest!

Jerry has failed to get out of the SITUATION and it has turned into a PROBLEM, wasting an UPDATE.
Normally, he would be able to get out of the problem by the next update, but it looks like Jerry is now in another SITUATION which could delay the PROBLEM further if he’s SABOTAGED


ALSO READ THE SABOTAGE OPTION for something important!

IMPORTANT: If you choose to have Jerry crash into something, be advised that there is a chance that his moped will break, and the percentage for his moped being undrivable after being damaged will be decided depending on the durability of what he crashes into (example: hitting another car or building would be a 50% chance, hitting a sturdy box in the middle of the road someone dropped would be a 25% chance.
Also, you don't have to have the moped crash into anything and have a different thing happen if you want a sabotage but don't want to destroy the vehicle.

Gerbera: I’ll SAVETH US ALL! USE ANY OF MY WEAPONETH THOU WANTETH

Mary: The pirates seem to be too distracted…
Mary: Though we might hurt poor Dan…
Mary: And theres a chance the bomb’s explosion might be big enough to damage our moped too, though I think we’ll be safe if we throw it far enough away from us, right?

HELP: 5 SABOTAGE 2

2. STALE LEFTOVERS
Mary: Hmm… not sure, maybe throw the leftovers at their steering wheel so they can turn away from us?
Mary: But that seems unlikely and a waste of time…

HELP: 1, SABOTAGE: 5

3. PURR FECKT’S PURSE
Mary: I think I might be able to remove the handle off the purse and use it as a rope to lasso Pam's leg and pull her off of Blake so he can take control again.
Mary: too bad I’m not strong enough… ahhh well…
Gerbera: I CAN DO IT!
Mary: …darn… Just remember Purrfeckt will be angry with us and I might have a harder time getting home… And you might miss with how fast we’re going

HELP: 5 SABOTAGE: 2

4. ILLEGAL POWDERED DONUT
Mary: Might be helpful to get you over to the other vehicle
Mary: might be bad if you fail and pass out next update…
Mary: and it’s still dangerous to climb onto the other vehicle.

5. TASTY DECOY CARDBOARD PIZZA

6. GERBERA PLUSH
Gerbera: My parrot can flyeth over and steereth the wheel!

Jerry tells Gerbera this is not the time for games

Gerbera: What I meant was I can throw the doll at their steering wheel and hopefully it’ll steer away from us…
Mary: You’ll need good aim... and I don’t think something that light is going to be able to turn the wheel

HELP: 2 SABOTAGE 5

7. RADIO
Mary: Maybe if you play loud music, people will hear us, look behind, and get out of our way!
Mary: Stall until those pirate LARPERS get back in control of their vehicle.
Mary: though that is assuming there’s no traffic jam

HELP: 5 SABOTAGE: 3

8. THE ZA COSTUME
Mary: You say the costume is made with sticky cheese?
Mary: with that amount of cheese, We can probably put it in front of the vehicles to slow us down
Gerbera: NOOOO! I Don’t Wanteth to killeth THE ZA!

[i]Message from PEA: Sorry this update took so long. I had company visiting last weekend to focus on, and I had to work on Romance Fest. Not only that, but I kept getting ideas for visual gags that I wanted to make, so what initially was going to be 3-5 posts turned into 8 posts. Whoops.
I’m not sure if I’ll be able to update next weekend as I need to get something done on Sunday, but I will do what I can.

Because of that, I think I’ll roll the dice on TUESDAY instead of WEDNESDAY, but that depends on how things go. I’ll try not to go overboard next time.

I vote SABOTAGE: Jerry jumps off the moped and lands in the car. Unable to move the idiots out of the way to reach the break, he settles for turning their wheel. With a hard pivot, Jerry's able to free the moped for Gerbera to bring to a stop. Gerbera then reveals that they apparently don't have a fucking driver's license, and that they have no idea how to control this thing. They grab Mary and the pizza and bail just before it crashes.

...But if we end up HELPING: Same as above, except instead of bailing due to inability to operate a motorized vehicle, Mary thinks fast and tells Gerbera to use their mace as an emergency break, dragging it across the ground until they come to a stop.

If we end up sabotaging, the radio instead plays the theme of PIZZA OF THE CARIBBEAN and the pirates become inspired and board our vessel.

UNLOCKED SIDEQUEST: Find some bananas for Ramona/Rachael to give her for free to improve customer satisfaction!
-You might be able to buy them at a shop, but might take an update. Quality of bananas will be HIGH if you buy them from the shop.
-There might be a chance you'll come across some during your journey without having to use an update to buy some, but it might add some SABOTAGE points when the opportunity arrives, quality of bananas will vary if you take this route in finding bananas


Message from PEA: With that out of the way, FOUR votes for HELP and TWO votes for SABOTAGE.
But Since majority of the HELP votes was to use the radio, there will be 5 points added for HELP and 3 points added for SABOTAGE.

As the vehicles travel at full speed towards uncertainty, Jerry tries desperately to regain control of the moped, but to no avail. He looks up from the handlebar when he discovers in shock and horror that they are about to ram right into the rear of the red car in front of them. Jerry is certain that crashing is imminent and braces for impact with the only thoughts left being how he’s going to explain this one to Uncle Ricardo.

Gerbera: Don’t worry! I GOT this!

Gerbera pulls out his RADIO from their HAMMERSPACIAL DIMENSION, with the intention of playing loud music to alert the vehicle in front of them. You’re probably wondering, HEY! use the horn to alert the drivers you idiots! but in CRUST CITY, people honk their horns all the time for the stupidest reason, so it’s kind of meaningless and been tuned out by most city folk. For example, people honk one millisecond after the light turns green.

Message from PEA: Plz don’t do this example irl, people will hate you

However, instead of tuning the radio to a music station to play loud music, Gerbera decides to plug their GERBERA DOLL into the radio instead, pulls the pullstring, and it begins singing the most annoying song about their unrequited love Snowpea.

Unbelievably, it worked! Though not in the way that was expected. Instead of being alerted to get out of the way, The old man inside the vehicle in front of them just wanted to get away from the terrible music so that he doesn’t have to be tortured by the wrath of Gerbera Doll’s song, unaware that he was going to get rear-ended. Ah well, whatever works.


There’s still the issue of getting back control over the moped tho, all the radio did was delay the inevitable. Jerry believes that perhaps this plan might not have been thought up all the way through. However, as Jerry was thinking this, Dan looks up from his phone at the chaos unfolding, and his eyebrows start to furrow in anger.

Dan: Seriously?
Dan: We’re going to crash and the best you idiots could come up with to solve this SITUATION was to play music!?
Dan: Are you guys’ serious right now?
Dan: Are you FUCKING SERIOUS?!
Pam: YAAAAARRRRRRR! WHAT DID I SAY ABOUT CONVERSING WITH THE ENEMY, PRISONER?!


Dan takes one look at Pam, and sees that her shirt under her pirate coat had been torn to threads from Gerbera’s attack earlier revealing her exposed breasts which causes Dan to recoil in disgust and look away.

Dan: FOR FUCK’S SAKE, SIS, HIDE YOUR SHAME!
Pam: PIRATES HAVE NO SHAME!
Dan: AAAAAHHHHHH!!! THAT DOES IT! I HAVE HAD ENOUGH!

Dan unbuckles himself from the seatbelt, and begins climbing the pole that holds the sail which Blake and Pam had installed onto the back of Blake’s car. It’s impressive how much strength he has to not be flung off from how fast the car is going.

Pam: *GASP* THE PRISONER SOMEHOW ESCAPED THE ROPE BINDINGS!
Pam: Though that isn’t really fair, bro. Come on!
Dan: NO! STOP IT WITH YOUR MAKE-BELIEVE BULLSHIT! I’M DONE!
Dan: I’M TIRED OF YOU GUYS ALWAYS ROPING ME INTO YOUR EMBARRASSING PRETEND GAMES
Dan: AND IT’S ABOUT TIME I DID SOMETHING ABOUT THIS AND END YOUR SESSION ONCE AND FOR ALL
Dan: AND GET YOU GUYS TO GROW THE FUCK UP!


Dan takes out a kitchen knife from his HAMMERSPACIAL DIMENSION and begins cutting the tape that holds the sail onto the pole

Pam: YARR! THE PRISONER BE DESTROYING OUR SAIL!
Pam: WITHOUT IT, WE WON’T BE ABLE TO MOVE AND WE’LL BE STRANDED!
Pam: CAPTURE HIM AND BRING HIM BACK TO THE BRIG!
Blake: *SQUAWK* STUCK! STUCK!


Blake struggles but cannot move as Pam is sitting right on top of him after she fell back into the car from Gerbera’s attack. This gives Dan enough time to finish cutting the last of the duct tape holding the sail in place.

WOOSH! As soon as Dan finishes cutting the sail free from the pole, the car hits a bump causing an updraft somehow, and blows the sail away. However, Dan forgets to let go of the sail and is flown off with the sail as it flies off like a kite free of its strings with Dan holding onto it for dear life.

Dan:AAAAHHHHHHHHHHhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh…
Gerbera: OH NO! DAN!
Gerbera: …
Gerbera: Well, it serves him right!
Gerbera: he was pretty much and ASSHOLE, wasn’t he?
Gerbera: looking down at us LARPERS, with a holier than thou superiority complex.
Gerbera: Like, come on, let us have our fun!
Gerbera: It’s not like we’re hurting anyone.
Mary: I mean, if you put it that way, yeah.
Mary: Not to mention he was speciesist against Bnuuys too.
Mary: Still a shame that happened,
Gerbera: ehhh, He had it coming.


Jerry was at first wondering if he was at fault for Dan getting blown off the car like that, but after hearing Gerbera’s and Mary’s points of view on the matter, his conscious is cleared. He’ll give Pam some credit though, even though she is a bit too obsessed with roleplaying, she is an excellent actor.

Pam and Blake finally stops the car in the middle of the road as the moped drives further away into the distance towards a large city bridge.

Pam: WITHOUT OUR SAIL, OUR SHIP IS IN A BECALMED STATE, ADRIFT IN SEA AS FAR AS THE EYE CAN SEE.
Pam:…
Pam: well, I guess that’s the end of our game, huh Blake?
Blake: THE END! THE END! *SQUAWK!*
Pam: hee hee, yeah. That was fun. Too bad it ended that way, with us stranded.
Pam: Wanna start a new LARPING session again same time tomorrow? I’m open to anything you want to do.
Blake: FANTASY! FANTASY! *SQUAWK!*
Pam: Inspired by that cool flower, eh? I like that idea. Yeah! I’ll be the witch, and you’ll be the knight!


Pam gives Blake a kiss before continuing the conversation.

Pam: Well, I’m hungry. Let’s find someplace to eat, it is dinner time after all.
Pam: And chasing that :pizzid: moped really got me craving for something specific.
Pam: Can you guess?
Blake: BURGERS BURGERS! *SQUAWK!*
Pam: That’s right! Up for some BURGERVANIA? The waitress there is kinda cute.
Blake: YOUR CHOICE! YOUR CHOICE! *SQUAWK!*
Pam: Alright! Let’s head on over then!
Pam: but before that I think it’s more important to address the elephant in the room:
Pam: KYAAAAAA! MY SHIRT IS SHREDDED! DON’T LOOOOOOK!


Pam gives Blake a quick slap in the face out of embarrassment from her wardrobe malfunction, making him dizzy from the surprise slap.

OH NO! The GOSLING PILE was not dealt with, and the tower got so high, it has finally tipped over causing a GOSLING TIDAL WAVE!

The tidal wave is now heading towards Jerry’s direction and will reach him by UPDATE 8. If he can get passed the next upcoming SITUATION and get some distance, it will reach him by UPDATE 9 instead. The only way to truly get away from the GOSLING TIDAL WAVE would be to reach the safety of the FIRST CHECKPOINT, which Jerry thinks he can reach after about two more potential SITUATIONS.
However, if Jerry gets caught in the GOSLING TIDAL WAVE, that will be another SITUATION he’ll have to find a way out of before he reaches the FIRST CHECKPOINT

The drive takes the PIZZA PARTY to a large bridge known as the DOUGH BRIDGE. As expected, there is a lot of traffic here during rush hour, So the delivery has slowed down a little. Plenty of time to talk about shit.

Mary: So… umm… about that GERBERA DOLL…
Gerbera: Hm?
Mary: You’re absolutely sure it has never once been a living thing… right?
Mary: Seeing you pull that string and make it talk… I uh… have many mixed feelings about that.
Mary: It’s… uncanny.
Gerbera: What? OH! Nonono, I understand what you’re saying.
Gerbera: Oh I feel bad. To you, it must have been like you seeing a small figure made out of flesh… ugh, gross!
Gerbera: And watching me pull a string to make it talk… I can’t imagine what’s been going through your head…
Gerbera: I can assure you the cotton and fabric they’re made of comes from wild plants, and fur or wool from certain wild animals like those goslings you thought were origamis, or PAPERLING I guess you called them...
Gerbera: Mostly sheep wool I think? I know nothing on toy making plushies.
Mary: *Shudders* plants made of cotton?
Mary: I mean, this might be another thing that could change our world on how STUFFIES are made if I were to bring seeds of those plants into our world…
Mary: But… um, that feels like PLAYING GODDESS in some ways at that point. I’ll just sticking with introducing tree wood into our world… on the other hand…
Gerbera: S…sorry for disturbing you with the doll, Mary. It was very inconsiderate of me. I can keep it out of sight for you.
Mary: Nononono… no need to do that… I mean, yeah it is pretty disturbing to look at.
Mary: But I can’t help but feel a little intrigued and curious about it as well…
Mary: Like, study it and see how different it is from the materials it’s made from is in comparison to our own body…
Mary: I think at least one person I know from my small town might be really interested in that plushie…
Mary: One of them have been showing off an anatomy book and would probably like to research the doll.
Mary: I even had some interest in borrowing and reading that book, but due to… personal reasons… I had to leave town to offer my calculative probability skills for that election and better opportunities
Mary: To make something out of myself and prove to someone I’m not worthle- no, sorry, I’m not getting into that.
Gerbera: Hmm… on the topic of my items
Gerbera: That radio I used seemed to be getting pretty low on batteries.
Gerbera: Which is weird, I recently just changed those.
Gerbera: If I want to use my radio again, I’ll probably only be able to use it ONE MORE TIME before the batteries die.
Gerbera: Still weird the batteries was depleted that fast…


Jerry thinks the batteries may have depleted early because it didn’t want to listen to the GERBERA DOLL’S song and wanted to escape it by depleting its own power faster somehow.

Jerry was about to give his snarky opinion when the traffic comes to a complete stop to an unbelievable sight to behold.

There are a bunch of parked cars in front of Jerry blocking the way. And on top of all the parked cars are a bunch of people standing on top of their cars… dancing??? No wait, they’re doing AEROBIC EXERCISES?!? AT A TIME LIKE RUSH HOUR?! What the fuck is going on?!

From where Jerry sits, he can see a snail with a single giant sock for pants (SOCK SNAIL) to his left, a mongoose who looks like she is having a blast (JOYFUL MONGOOSE) and a kitchen grater person (GRATER HEAD) on his right, and in front of him there is a gray cat drenched in sweat (SWEATY KITTY). Jerry is sure there are several more cars with people atop of them in front of him than what he can currently see, but off in the distance, he can see a giant semi-truck about as wide as the bridge blocking everyone’s way with what appears to be a buff looking man leading the exercises with his large stereos blaring EDM music, and a giant monitor giving everyone a better look at him. Jerry thinks he also see’s something very shiny flying next to him which even with sunglasses is hurting his eyes a little, but he can’t really make it out.

Jerry considers turning the moped around and finding another way to his destination, but behind him are several more vehicles parked in place with people exiting their own vehicle and climbing atop them to join the exercise, trapping the PIZZA PARTY in a prison of cars. Looks like Jerry is gonna be here for a while.

Frustrated, Jerry tries to get the attention of THE SWEATY KITTY to try to understand what the fuck is going on here.

Sweaty Kitty looks back at the PIZZA PARTY and slows her rhythmic movements a little, while heavily breathing

Sweaty Kitty: *pant pant* Just… gimme a moment
Sweaty Kitty: *pant pant* to finish this… set of exercises *pant pant*

Sweaty Kitty finishes her sway-like movements before completely turning around to focus on Jerry

Sweaty Kitty: Okay… *pant pant* what’s up? I can’t talk long, gotta burn some calories

Jerry asks Sweaty Kitty why everyone is doing exercises during RUSH HOUR of all times. Shouldn’t people be heading home after a long day at work?!

Sweaty Kitty: Isn’t it wonderful? *pant pant*
Sweaty Kitty: MR. ARMSTRONG noticed a lot of people in the city *pant pant* hasn’t been able to find the time to get their daily exercises in *pant pant*
Sweaty Kitty: So he spoke with the mayor for permission to use the DOUGH BRIDGE to hold daily AEROBIC exercises*pant pant* during rush hour.

Sweaty Kitty: So that people can get their exercises in in order to unwind after *pant pant* a long stressful day of work![/b]

Jerry asks what that shining thing next to Mr. Armstrong is

Sweaty Kitty: *pant pant* Oh, that’s his girlfriend Rocio, a fairy that helps him with the technical stuff with her magic and acts as a *pant pant* cheerleader during our exercises…
Sweaty Kitty: Though she acts more like a drill sergeant than a cheerleader *pant pant* if you ask me…
Sweaty Kitty: Making sure we do our exercises right *pant pant* and calling us out in front of everyone if we make mistakes


Mary looks over at Gerbera in confusion

Mary: Hey wait, you told me magic was fake in this world and you guys rely more on technology!
Gerbera: Whoops. Well technically, yeah, magic doesn’t exist in our world.
Gerbera: But that doesn’t mean immigrants from other universes can bring magic here!
Gerbera: Ever since our world invented multiverse travel, people from other universes have been immigrating into our world to start a new life here.
Gerbera: Did you know that before this world invented multiverse travel, this world was only populated by humans and wild animals? Crazy right?
Gerbera: That means I’m an immigrant too by the way. It’s pretty much why you see cars with steering wheels on the left side in some vehicles and some on the right in others
Gerbera: Immigrants basically bring their vehicles from their world to ours
Gerbera: Anyway, same thing with magic. that fairy was probably an immigrant from another universe that may have brought “magic”, here.
Gerbera: Though there are plenty of people, like myself, who are skeptical about the whole magic thing.
Gerbera: And there are probably some logical explanations to prove what she does isn’t magic.
Gerbera: But… I’m too lazy to look into that…
Mary: I see.
Mary: Well, you are free to believe what you want.


Jerry asks sweaty kitty how long this is going to take

Sweaty Kitty: oh, well we just got started, so probably after a few UPDATES

Aww fuck. Jerry doesn’t want to wait that long, otherwise he might not be able to have enough UPDATE POINTS to chill with his friends VINCENT and HARMON at the FIRST CHECKPOINT for a while. And who knows what other Situations he might encounter before he makes it to the FIRST CHECKPOINT

Suddenly, a loud high pitched voice booms through the stereo

Rocio: HEY! YOU BACK THERE! YES YOU! THE CAT IN THE DRENCHED PINK SHIRT!
Rocio: DON’T JUST STAND THERE! KEEP MOVING!
Rocio: WORK WHEN YOUR TIRED! REST WHEN YOUR DEAD, LAZYBONES!
Sweaty Kitty: Whoops, haha! *Pant pant* She caught me. Sorry, but I gotta focus on this.


Sweaty Kitty goes back to her exercises while Rocio turns her attention on the PIZZA PARTY.

Rocio: And as for you guys back there! GET YOUR BODIES MOVING ALREADY!
Rocio: Especially you, stringbean! Yes, you! human driving the :pizzid: moped!
Rocio: If you’re going to fatten people up with that pizza grease, AT LEAST have the courtesy to get :pizzid: to show some support to a healthier lifestyle and exercise with everyone here to set an example!

Jerry tries to yell that Gerbera is far skinnier than him, but his voice just doesn’t carry far enough for her to hear

Mr: Armstrong: ALRIGHT EVERYONE! We’re going to do some air punches now! We’ll start slow, but we’ll pick up speed as we go on! Leg placement is important! Ready! One! Two! Three! Four!
Rocio: COME ON EVERYONE! I WANNA SEE PEOPLE SWEATING OUT THERE
Rocio: ESPECIALLY ALL YOU BEEFCAKES OUT THERE… Rarw!

Gerbera: You know what! I can’t help it! They just exude so much energy! And that music is so catchy!
Gerbera: I’m going to join the fun!

Jerry tries to tell Gerbera to stop this nonsense, but they just ignore him. Well great, looks like Gerbera won’t be of any help again.

>-USE AN ITEM:

Gerbera: HEY! Check out these squats!
Jerry does not in fact check out these squats! Gerbera will not be letting Jerry use their items as they are too busy exercising.

1. PIZZA BOMB
Mary: You could probably use this to blast your way through the traffic pretty easily…
Mary: But what if the bridge isn’t as sturdy as we thought and it collapses from the explosion?
Mary: And even if it isn’t, you’ll get a lot of people hurt and angry at you

HELP: 5 SABOTAGE 4

2. TASTY DECOY CARDBOARD PIZZA
Mary: :Pizzid:’s pizza is so good it causes people to get addicted to them, right?
Mary: And your CARDBOARD PIZZA has plenty of pieces, and should distract people long enough to help us get far enough away when they realize it tastes like cardboard after the second bite…
Mary: Maybe if you offer the slices for free, and throw them in the distance somewhere, everyone will drive after it and we can get through?
Mary: But… will Armstrong be into it too, or would he see it as too fattening?
Mary: And what if you can’t throw it far enough?
(please specify where you throw the cardboard pizza if you choose this)

HELP: 5 SABOTAGE: 3

3. STALE LEFTOVERS
Mary: I think this is pretty much the same thing as the CARDBOARD PIZZA?
Mary: Except… really not as great.
Mary: There’s only one slice of pizza in the bag, with a bunch of toppings
Mary: and people would recognize it as stale
Mary: Maybe you can offer it to Mr. Armstrong and Rocio as a bribe to get out of the way?
Mary: Some of the toppings in the bag do seem healthy a little… I think? I wouldn’t know, I’m just a STUFFIE…

HELP: 3 SABOTAGE: 5

Message from PEA: Yeah, not a lot of items this time, I know, but I just couldn’t think of anything creative for them. So tell you what, from this point on if I don’t list a certain item, you guys can come up with what Jerry can do with the unlisted item can do and how much SABOTAGE and HELP points it can give. Just as long as they are below 7 POINTS. Be advised I might change the points for balance sake, but I trust you guys.
Otherwise, I’d like to see what HELP or SABOTAGE ideas you guys come up with for this SITUATION, especially if you choose to do it without items, lol.
Keep in mind you can’t use Gerbera’s items.

>-GET ANTONIO’S HELP (7 HELP POINTS) (Lower Pizza Temperature if you don’t give him STALE LEFTOVERS) (Pizza Temperature is: HOT )

Antonio: Yeah, I guess I can scare everyone away by giving everyone a jumpscare if I appeared suddenly in front of the camera and went “boo!” or something.
Antonio: Just make sure you get out of everyone’s way when they start running and driving away.
Antonio: should be able to scare off the body builder and lightbulb too.



Sub Options

>-Talk to somebody!
-Jerry can talk to Sweaty Kitty, Sock Snail, Grater Head, and/or Joyful Mongoose for hints on how to deal with a certain future SITUATION for more HELP/SABOTAGE POINTS in those events
-Or you might get a SIDEQUEST
-Or you might get LORE!
-Or you might get an ITEM (you may need to discard an item to make room if this happens depending on who you give it to)
-Feel free to come up with any topic you want to talk about to somebody. Jerry might get a certain result depending on the character and what you think they’d be interested in talking about. I will choose the topic most interesting, or whichever gets the most votes!
-Be advised: Talking to one person will give you 1 SABOTAGE point. So if you decide to talk to two people for example, you’ll be getting 2 SABOTAGE POINTS.
-If you want to talk to someone, please state HOW MANY PEOPLE YOU WANT TO TALK TO, as well as WHO you want to talk to. That will make things easier for voting.

>-Find a drink for SWEATY KITTY
-Sweaty Kitty is looking pretty parched. You don’t have any drinks besides the fruit punch in your pizza.
-If you give Sweaty Kitty a drink of the fruit punch, you’ll lower the temperature of the pizza from HOT to WARM upon opening the pizza box (unless you give the STALE LEFTOVERS to Antonio to maintain pizza heat), and there will be a chance that Ramona/Rachael will find out the pizza has been tampered with once the pizza is delivered, lowering CUSTOMER SATISFACTION.
-If your creative, or lucky enough, maybe you’ll find a way to quench her thirst with something other than the fruit punch?
-Reminder, all sub options can be ignored including this one.
-this won’t give you HELP or SABOTAGE points either way.

No. 1024717 ID: 629f2e

Just for fun, let's think of uses for all the items not listed here. I'm also just gonna write my own fake Mary dialogue, because that's even more fun.

None of this is canon unless Polt specifically says it is, I'm just goofing around.

4. PURR FECKT’S PURSE
Mary: Honestly, I genuinely can't think of a good use for any of this this time.
Mary: We can just put this down and look at other items-
Gerbera: Hey, do you think she has a water bottle in there we could give to Sweaty Kitty?
Mary: ...
Mary: W-Well... Aw fluff there is one.
Mary: Um, even if it's something this small, I don't want to risk making Purr Feckt angry. I need her help getting home.
HELP: N/A SABOTAGE: N/A (Does not contribute towards resolving SITUATION, only helps with quenching Sweaty Kitty's thirst)

5. ILLEGAL POWDERED DONUT
Mary: A sugar rush may just help you keep up with their aerobics!
Gerbera: Yay! You should join us! Start punching the air. One! And two! And one!...
Mary: Instead of the air, maybe you could do something about Mr. Armstrong with the boost?
Mary: But um... He looks pretty strong though, and he has magic on his side...
Mary: Also, I don't think you should be violent with him just because we're in a hurry.
Mary: Even with a rush from this, I'm not totally sure you could overpower him. Outspeed maybe, but even then there's still his girlfriend.
Mary: Plus, since you'll crash after an UPDATE, if this becomes a PROBLEM then me and Gerbera will have to solve it ourselves.
Gerbera: And one! And two!
HELP: 3 SABOTAGE: 5

6. JERRY’S/GERBERA’S WALLET (30 ₵A$H from Jerry, 50 ₵A$H from Gerbera)
Mary: Hmm... If we bribed everyone to leave, then there wouldn't be any reason for the trainers to stay.
Mary: Still, we would have to split what we have across four different people.
Mary: Actually, maybe only three, if we could find something for Sweaty Kitty to drink.
Mary: Does... maybe... 20 ₵A$H each seem like enough for each person?
Gerbera: Hey, that's actually the base price of a large :pizzid: two-topping pizza.
Mary: ...I think that should do it then

HELP: 6 (Costs 20 ₵A$H per person, if you complete Sweaty Kitty's subtask you won't have to pay her)

7. RADIO
Gerbera: We need epic music!
Mary: Won’t that just make things more intense?

Jerry mentions that they already had this exchange last update.

Gerbera: The higher the intensity, the better the workout!
Mary: ...Actually, if we player a faster track than Mr. Armstrong's, we might be able to tire everyone out faster.
Mary: If nobody can keep going, then maybe they'll leave!
Gerbera: Just remember that if you use the radio again, the batteries will die.
Mary: There's also a chance that this could backfire, and everyone will just get more into the workout.
HELP: 5 SABOTAGE: 3

8. GERBERA DOLL
Mary: ...I think using this would have to result in a lot of athletic people being angry at us for interrupting their workout.
Mary: Which... isn't good at all really.
SABOTAGE: 7

9. THE ZA COSTUME
Gerbera: You want me to get into costume? That would be hard to work out in I think.
Mary: Wait a minute, what if Gerbera put on her own performance as "THE ZA"?
Mary: If we stole the crowd's attention, do you think Mr. Armstrong would pack it up and leave?
Gerbera: I could do "THE P-ZA SHUFFLE", that one always gets people sprinting into the building!
Jerry mentions that those "customers" often rush inside to make someone call for an ambulance, interpreting the "dance" as Gerbera writhing in pure agony.
Mary: ...We really don't need more cars here right now.
HELP: 2 SABOTAGE: 3

10. MACE
Jerry suggests that Gerbera go up on stage and knock out Mr. Armstrong.
Gerbera: Um... Okay, I actually have a few problems with that.
Gerbera: Most of them being that I don't want to hurt someone unless I really have to.
Gerbera: Or if it's fun pretend like with those pirates before!
Mary: Even if Gerbera could land a blow on either of them, the other would likely pay it back.
Mary: Um... I don't like the thought, but how do you think you could do against the audience?
Gerbera: Hmmmm... Four people in a row. That would also be pretty tough. But less so.
Gerbera: Do you think if I knocked their clothes off that they would get back in their cars and leave?
Mary: That seems likely, people in this dimension really seem to care about clothing for some reason.
Mary: Still, if they realized what you were doing, they might all gang up on you.
Jerry gives the plan two thumbs up.
HELP: 4, SABOTAGE: 3

11. JERRY'S SMARTPHONE
Mary: Do you have any contacts on your phone who could get us past this SITUATION?
Jerry tries and fails to think of somebody who doesn't annoy him. With a sigh, he mentions that P.I. ZZander definitely owes him after his last screw-up. He could use his police connections to get them an escort past the event.
Mary: That sounds great!
He quickly adds on that there is a high chance that if ZZander shows up himself, that they'd probably just be trading one SITUATION for another.
Mary: Oh... That's less good.
HELP: 5, SABOTAGE: 2

12. GERBERA'S SMARTPHONE
Mary: What about your contact list, Gerbera?
Gerbera: Ooh! What about Snowpea! She could fly us over, and then you would get to meet her!
Mary: That would be perfect! Does she live nearby?
Gerbera: No.
Mary: ...
Gerbera: Well she could be nearby anyways. It's not impossible.
If Snowpea happens to be near: HELP: 6
If Snowpea isn't anywhere close: SABOTAGE: 4


...

...

Oh yeah! I'm supposed to make an actual suggestion, aren't I?

Sorry Mary, but I'm going to say we steal that water bottle right out of Purr Feckt's purse to offer to Sweaty Kitty. Don't worry though, we can totally put it back afterwards! Just have Sweaty Kitty wring her hair off into it, and put it right back in. Perfect crime, we just need to wrap up any business we have with her before she has a drink.

Let's talk to three people, because I want to raise the odds of SABOTAGE victory: Sweaty Kitty for sure, then either Joyful Mongoose or Sock Snail. Sorry, I'm sure the other dude's a grate guy, but I like the others more. Better be sure to use an item to clear out a slot if they give us anything. (Pref if we talk to fewer than 3: SK > JM > SS)

I'm still on the SABOTAGE train, it retains my vote, so I say we blast that RADIO one last time to try and exhaust everyone... And have it backfire, only energizing them further. Everyone is so pumped, but also so... HUNGRY!

All eyes land on the pizza man, and the situation quickly escalates to a PROBLEM as a hungry mob blocks the path ahead.

If HELP wins out, then we put on some speedmetal that the others can't keep up with. Totally exhausted, the lesson ends early as Armstrong can't convince them to keep going

>None of this is canon unless Polt specifically says it is, I'm just goofing around.

Message from PEA: AWW YEAH! I love these so much! thanks a bunch! yeah they are definitely canon especially if any of those items are voted by multiple people to be used in those ways. I'll even make it canon there was a water bottle in Purr Feckt's Purse. I'll see it as that purse has whatever suggestors want in there (within reason of course) but the more you use the purse, the more likely Purr Feckt will find out you've been through her purse! That'll be a new rule for it that I'll address in the next update.

to other suggestors, don't let that discourage you from coming up with other ideas you can use the items for with your own thoughts of how many points the HELP and SABOTAGE votes will get. Your ideas will be canon too. In fact, if you can think of other uses for the items that I personally listed in my update with your own points, go ahead and list them.

and reminder, you don't HAVE to use those items, you can come up with your own HELP or SABOTAGE ideas without the use of items. Anything goes with how you deal with it, the limit is your imagination.

Well, I've been thinking and at this point, the only way how I see for us to proceed is to simply split up. Jerry should get off the vehicle and continue on the foot, while Gerbera should try to drive back and if possible catch up with Jerry in front. I don't know if this is a help or hindrance suggestion but is the best suggestion that I have.

I vote SABOTAGE. Can't help but follow orders from a tiny, loud glowy person.

I vote we give the water bottle to SWEATY KITTY because we are kind people who root through purses for good causes.

I also vote that we use GERBERA's SMARTPHONE to call Snowpea to fly us over. She's very strong and fit! The workout team would love her. Too bad she's too far away to help (and she has a habit of remaining invisible in quests until the last possible minute).

If HELP is selected, Snowpea's lifting of the ZA crew is so inspiring that Armstrong and Rocio cheer her on for her inspiring feat of fitness and clear a path for her.

Vote sabotage, I like the Snowpea bit

Yeah, root through that purse and get some water, You're gonna return it and you can just be honest that you took a water bottle because of the SITUATION.

Give that to sweaty titty I uh mean kitty. When sabotaging you should have jerry say that lmao.

The sabotage is probably that they just stay and Jerry tries to get off and walk but gets accosted and can't go forward.


IF help, then I guess he just gets off and walks on foot, having Gerbera catch up, which will have the added bonus of causing the duck pile to be a situation for gerb and not you!

rolled 1, 4 = 5

[i]Message from PEA: okay, so there is one vote to talk to three of these weirdos doing aerobics which will be THE SWEATY KITTY, SOCK SNAIL, and JOYFUL MONGOOSE. since nobody voted against that, or voted to talk to anyone else or a greater or lesser amount of people, we'll be talking to these three people next update.

that said, if you want: please come up with a topic to talk about for any or all of those characters otherwise I will come up with my own topic. I'll choose which conversation is the most interesting to me, or whichever gets the most votes. Keep in mind no matter what topic you want to talk about, you are going to get something good out of each of the conversations. I'll make sure it's worth your while and not a waste of time. The topic you choose will sway what you'll get out of them tho.

-------------------

That being said, TWO vote points for HELP and FOUR vote points for SABOTAGE.

You will be talking to THREE people, so you get THREE more points for SABOTAGE.

Most suggestors in SABOTAGE wanted to use GERBERA'S SMARTPHONE, so that will give you SIX points for help, and FOUR points for SABOTAGE (interestingly, this item is giving you more HELP points than SABOTAGE despite the people suggesting for it going for SABOTAGE. Daring aren't we?)

Overall so far, the HELP POINTS are 8, and SABOTAGE points are 11

Once the six sided dices are rolled, I will add the votes to the results. the first dice will be HELP, the second dice will be SABOTAGE.

[/i]Message from PEA: SABOTAGE WINS with 9 HELP POINTS < 15 SABOTAGE POINTS.

Votes are locked in and you can no longer vote, BUT you can still suggest ideas on what will happen (though GERBERA'S SMARTPHONE HAS to be used).

If you previously suggested an idea for how Jerry gets HELPED, you can still suggest an idea for how Jerry gets SABOTAGED trying to get passed MR. ARMSTRONG'S SEMI TRUCK.

Also, as I said before, you will be talking to SWEATY KITTY, JOYFUL MONGOOSE, and SOCK SNAIL, so please come up with fun conversations if you can think of some for them. Otherwise, I'll come up with my own. No matter what the topic will be, you'll get something good outta them. I will choose the topics most interesting, or whichever gets the most votes.[/i]

Gerbera calls up Snowpea to try and get help, but ends up losing her phone (it gets knocked out of her hand by one of the other people working out, shattering when it hits the ground) at just the wrong time to create a misunderstanding. Gerbera says something about getting hot and sweaty with Sweaty Kitty, not realizing it sounds dirty until it's too late. Upon Jerry pointing it out, they become desperate to escape the crowd (as they pump up the music too loud to hold up a phone conversation), and use Jerry's phone to clear things up with Snowpea
>>
No. 1025299 ID: 629f2e

Just realized I never posted any conversation suggestions, meant to come back and do that.

Sweaty Kitty already gave us the basic gist of Mr. Armstrong and his deal, so let's ask her a little about herself (after giving her some water) and request she do something small for us later, so that when this becomes a PROBLEM we have a favor stored up with her. (Rare situation of me suggesting something HELPful for us, don't get used to it)

The Joyful Mongoose seems really into the exercise, so I'm guessing she's either a fitness buff or just really into the trainer. Either way, I think it'd be funny if she got on Jerry's case for smoking, since it's terrible for his health. This could potentially contribute to the situation turning into a problem if she feels strongly enough about it (or just wants to look really good in front of her crush, which is obviously Rocio).

As for Sock Snail... I dunno, ask why he's here when he already carries around a huge shell every day. Shouldn't that count as exercise enough? Maybe he's secretly been a slug this whole time, and the shell is his version of weighted clothing. Once that comes off, he's super fucking fast.

The sock is not weighted clothing. He just gets embarrassed if you pull that off.

As Gerbera climbs up on the Sweaty Kitty’s car to join her in aerobics, Jerry removes his helmet as he figures he’ll be here awhile, and summons PURR FECKT’S purse from his HAMMERSPACE, and proceeds to open it with the intention of getting a water bottle for the Sweaty Kitty. Mary looks at Jerry with great concern in his eyes.

Mary: Huh? W-wait, boss? What if Purr Feckt finds out? She’s going to be angry at us...
Mary: And then what if she refuses to tell me the coordinates back to my universe out of spite?
Mary:My home?


Jerry explains that he has a plan for keeping her from finding out, and that Mary should just chill. Mary however isn’t convinced.

Mary: But isn’t it said she is a perfectionist? Please reconsider.
Mary: We’re going to get in a lot of trouble


Jerry says that he’ll be very careful to keep everything as he found it. Besides, she might be very persnickety, but that doesn’t mean she’s going to notice one object is going to move one inch from where it originally was placed in the purse. On top of that, it’s her own damn fault for not investing in her own HAMMER SPACIAL DIMENSION, especially since she’s a LAWYER. Besides, they’re giving away the water bottle for a good cause, to save a poor cat from dehydration. She should at least understand that if she has a heart.

Mary sighs in disappointment

Mary: I suppose that’s true… it’s just that, it’s the principle of the thing, boss…
Mary: It just feels wrong we’re doing this out of someone else’s expense… even if it is for a good cause.


Jerry lets Mary know if he knew the type of person Purr Feckt is, he’d completely understand his actions.

Mary: Well… okay… If you say so…
Mary: I just try to see the good in people whenever I can, I mean she can’t be worse than my sis…
Mary: But I’ll believe in your judgment… Just, please don’t use the purse too much, okay?


Jerry just shrugs and says something along the lines of: ‘we’ll see’ which causes a sad little doggy whine from Mary in response.

Jerry then calls the Sweaty Kitty down from her vehicle, letting her know he has a water bottle if she wants a drink. The Sweaty Kitty stops her rhythmic movements immediately.

Sweaty Kitty: Whoa, REALLY?!
Sweaty Kitty: Oh thank goodness, *pant pant* I had forgotten mine back in my office.


The Sweaty Kitty jumps down from her car leaving Gerbera to exercise on their own, and surprises Jerry with a big ol’ sweaty hug

Sweaty Kitty: You’re such an ANGEL…
Sweaty Kitty: Thank you SOOOOOOOO MUCH! *pant pant*
Sweaty Kitty: You are a lifesaver!


The tight sweaty hug lasts awkwardly longer than it should and Jerry does not quite know how to respond to this. On one hand, the hug from a cute kitty woman does feel really nice, especially from the vibrations her loud purrs are giving…
on the other hand… EWWWW, HE’S GOT SOMEONE ELSE’S SWEAT ALL OVER HIM! He’s going to need a shower after work. Jerry isn’t sure if he should say something to stop this or not. But he looks at the bright side of this: at least it wasn’t Gerbera hugging him again.

HUGS OBTAINED: 2

CONGRATULATIONS! Because of the grossness from getting a lot of another person’s sweat on him, you have now been given 10 FREE SABOTAGE POINTS that you can use to have Jerry remember the disgust from getting Sweaty Kitty’s sweat on him to make him feel grossed out at any SITUATION.

Because you used the purse, you have gained a 25% chance of getting found out that you have been rummaging through Purr Feckt’s purse if you decide to give it back to her, or if she sees you with it.


Message from PEA: I have decided to change how the purse is used, it will have anything you want in there (as long as it is light and small enough to fit in a purse) but every time Jerry uses it, I will raise the percentage of Purr Feckt finding out you’ve been using her purse if she spots Jerry having it or you decide to give it to her for whatever reason (like if you want to give it back to her to increase your chances greatly at helping Mi Mary get back home to his Plush universe). If you’re smart enough, you can find ways to decrease that percentage before you finally meet Purr Feckt.

After the Sweaty Kitty gulps down the water from Purr Feckt’s water bottle in one go, Jerry asks for the empty water bottle back after being thanked by her. He then mentions something along the lines of needing to refill the water bottle so that Purr Feckt doesn’t find out when he returns it to her, to which one of the Sweaty Kitty’s eyebrows raises.

Sweaty Kitty: Wait, did you say… Purr Feckt?
Sweaty Kitty: Ugh… I hate that strict bitch. *pant pant*
Sweaty Kitty: Excuse the language…


Jerry asks the Sweaty Kitty what kind of issues she has with Purr Feckt, as he can share her sentiments, considering how she kicked him out of this world after being found guilty under false accusations until he miraculously found his way back.

Sweaty Kitty: Alright, so she was the lawyer for a client that tried to sue my small business into bankruptcy back then, see.
Sweaty Kitty: *pant pant* Something about how someone came into my office for my services *pant pant* and slipped on the floor in my office with no wet floor sign in sight after one of my exercises.
Sweaty Kitty: Which is weird *pant pant* because it wasn’t raining or anything. I bet the jerk was faking it!
Sweaty Kitty: And then little miss perfect lawyer *pant pant* came into my office the next day with the client and started aggressively verbally abusing me.
Sweaty Kitty: A lot of the claims against me *pant pant* did not make any sense, and should not have held water.
Sweaty Kitty: *pant pant*and yet, she made it sound so convincing that even *pant pant* I couldn’t help but admit defeat with the accusations she had against me and how they have a case against me.
Sweaty Kitty: *pant pant* Thankfully, we were able to settle out of court, because otherwise *Pant pant* I would have lost badly against her. Even if the accusations weren’t true
Sweaty Kitty: I heard she has a *pant pant* perfect record or something.
Sweaty Kitty: But come on. *pant pant* Winning every case even if the person is innocent is NOT perfection, dumb bitch…
Sweaty Kitty: Why are you even helping her anyways?


Jerry explains that he is delivering a pizza which tends to end him up in different SITUATIONS, and figures he might sooner or later come across Purr Feckt in a SITUATION given his criminal record, and he needs Purr Feckt’s help to get Mary back to his home world by receiving the coordinates there. He figures returning the purse should be able to help with either or maybe even both of those issues… if she doesn’t find out he’s been rummaging through her purse that is.

Sweaty Kitty’s eyes light up over this

Sweaty Kitty: OH! Well, allow *pant pant* me to help then!
Sweaty Kitty: Put that water bottle under my hair please!


Confused, Jerry does what she says, and without skipping a beat, she grasps her hair with both hands and wrings her sweat, all pouring out like a faucet, and filling it to the top. Jerry notices a bit of the blueness of her hair is vanishing and becoming brown… wait, does that mean she sweated so much her brown hair became blue from her sweat?! Jerry feels sick about everything Sweaty Kitty is doing. But nonetheless, he figures it’ll all be worth it to get back at Purr Feckt.

Sweaty Kitty: And there we go! Thanks again for the drink! Ha ha *pant pant* !
Sweaty Kitty: If only I would be able to see the look on her face when she drinks it…


Suddenly, a loud high pitched voice booms through the stereo again

Rocio: SLACKING OFF AGAIN, CAT GIRL!?
Rocio: COME ON! GET BACK TO EXERCISING!
Rocio: I AIN’T YELLING FOR MY HEALTH YOU KNOW!
Rocio: I’M ACTUALLY YELLING FOR YOUR HEALTH!
Sweaty Kitty: Whoops! How embarrassing. She caught me twice. Sorry, I can’t get distracted much longer. Thank again for the drink!


Jerry puts the refilled water bottle back in the purse where he found it as Sweaty Kitty climbs back on her vehicle.

Because Jerry asked for help refilling the water bottle, the chances of Purr Feckt finding out her purse was used was decreased by 10, bringing the percentage down to 15%. You might be able to lower it more if you can refill it with cleaner water instead of SWEATY water.

Jerry puts his mind back to what is important: figuring out a way out of this SITUATION. Thinking about the different options he has before him, he starts to think, didn’t Gerbera say something about Snowpea being a strong guard or something before moving to New Crust City? Thinking it through, Jerry makes the decision to ask Gerbera to call Snowpea

Gerbera: Really! Oh my! I was just making that suggestion without being serious to make myself sound like I was helping.
Gerbera: To be honest… I’m kinda too shy to talk to her


Jerry says it’s not like they're asking her out on a date or anything, they’re just getting her help to fly everyone across the bridge, and have her drive the moped to the parking building out of here afterwards.

Gerbera: umm… uhh! But exercises! We have to stay fit!
Mary: Please Gerbera? We have to deliver the pizza after all…
Gerbera: Um… Okay! For the customer!


Gerbera stops exercising and picks up their cell phone to dial Snowpea’s number. Unfortunately, it just goes to a voice message

Snowpea: Hello, I’m unavailable right now, but please leave your name, phone number if you’re not on my contact list, and reason for calling and I’ll get back to you shortly
Gerbera: Well shoot, she isn’t there, ah well, let’s forget about it


Jerry tells Gerbera to stop being a wuss and leave a message

Gerbera: Uhhhh, HI SNOWPEA! Guess what! I am going to be promoted to pizza courier! As if there was any doubt!
Gerbera: Anyway, Jerry, my partner, is delivering a pizza with me to show me the ropes, and he thinks you should come over to help us out!
Gerbera: But ah, not like I needed help or anything, I’m great…
Gerbera: In fact, you can take your time because I’m right now getting hot and sweaty with a new cute friendly kitty I met and-


Jerry interrupts Gerbera with a burst of laughter and asks them if they realized what they just said just now

Gerbera: Huh? What… OH! AH WAIT!
Mr. Armstrong: Alright everyone, time to do some uppercuts! Ready? 1-2-3-4!

BAP

The Sweaty Kitty got way too into the exercises that she accidentally uppercuts Gerbera’s phone out of their leafy hand. It flys up in the air and drops hard on the concrete street, causing it to break. Gerbera just stares at the broken phone speechless.
Well great, there goes one of the few reasons why Jerry brought Gerbera in the first place, now they can’t take pics of anything bad happening to Jerry in case Jerry is late and something bad happens. Ah well, Jerry can theoretically use his own phone

WELL DONE! GERBERA’S SMARTPHONE HAS TRANSFORMED INTO GERBERA’S BROKEN SMARTPHONE… it’s just paperweight now!

Mary: Sorry Gerbera
Gerbera:…

Meanwhile, the Gosling tidal wave is still on it’s way to Jerry and has inadvertently caught Eugene along for the ride, who finally just got up from getting run over!

Eugene: WHAT THE FUCK?!
Gosling #2647: Chirp! (sorry!)
Eugene: You know what? WHATEVER!, I’ll just ride this out until it brings me back to EXTRA CHEEZE STREET.


The GOSLING TIDAL WAVE will be at the bridge by UPDATE 8. So get your assess moving!

Well, that didn’t work, but maybe Jerry can get some help from the Sweaty Kitty? He did help her out after all. Jerry asks a little bit about Sweaty Kitty and if she knows of any way she can help him with the pizza delivery.

Sweaty Kitty: Talkative, aren’t we? Well that’s alright *pant pant*, you did help me after all, but I can’t talk much, I really don’t want Rocio to call me out again, haha *pant pant*
Sweaty Kitty: So how about this instead, you seem like you could use a friend and need some attention, *pant pant* so let’s exchange phone numbers and we can talk later!
Sweaty Kitty: I’m actually a professional *pant pant* freelance negotiator and mediator
Sweaty Kitty: So if you find yourself in a SITUATION where you *pant pant* need to talk your way out of an argument
Sweaty Kitty: Or negotiate a deal with someone or *pant pant* convince someone to do something for you
Sweaty Kitty: *pant pant* I’m your kitty!
Sweaty Kitty: Oh, uh, I charge 10 ₵A$H *pant pant* outta pocket for each update my services is used by the way.
Sweaty Kitty: Unless I fail, in which case it’s free.
Sweaty Kitty: I’ll send someone *pant pant* to pick up your ₵A$H after I give my services.


Jerry and Sweaty Kitty exchange phone numbers and she goes right back to exercising. Jerry lets Mary know that he’s going to be traveling the rest of the way on foot while he’ll let Gerbera drive the moped to the parking building whenever he’s done with this. Who knows, maybe Jerry might even go so far ahead, Gerbera will lose him.

YOU NOW HAVE SWEATY KITTY’S PHONE NUMBER! SWEET! OR SHOULD I SAY… SWEAT!
-Call her if you’re in an argument or need to negotiate a deal, and she’ll help you out for 10 ₵A$H which you’ll pay to someone she sends over to your location conveniently.
-You can also text her random things for whatever reason. It’ll mostly do nothing to HELP or SABOTAGE Jerry’s situation except give you fun conversations. Just write down some fun topics to write about, and see her responses!


Mary looks with concern at Gerbera still in a state of shock.

Mary: You think they’ll be okay on their own?
Gerbera:…


Jerry stares at Gerbera and just nods at Mary in assurance. He lets Mary ride on his back, picks up the pizza, and the two head off on their way towards the front. But not before they decide to speak to a couple of people on the way, maybe they’ll get some advice or help. The closest person nearby is the joyful mongoose. She’s atop the next car over to Sweaty Kitty after all. Jerry makes his way over to the Joyful Mongoose, and remarks how into the exercise she is.

Joyful Mongoose: What? Exercising? No way!
Joyful Mongoose: I’m just here to dance to the music!
Joyful Mongoose: This is the only time I can release my impulse to dance without having to wait several hours for the dance club to open!


Jerry looks again, and it becomes apparent that the Joyful Mongoose isn’t in fact exercising at all with the rest of the crowd, but actually dancing! Jerry lets Joyful Mongoose know she's doing it wrong.

Joyful Mongoose: Hey! What difference does it make!?
Joyful Mongoose: I’m moving my body! I’m burning calories!
Joyful Mongoose: More than what you can say for yourself!
Joyful Mongoose: You’re not even exercising. Heck! You’re smoking!
Joyful Mongoose: If you’re not here for your own health, then don’t be the pot calling the kettle black next time!
Joyful Mongoose: then why are you even here?!


Jerry explains that he didn’t know that there was going to be some kind of dumb aerobics class happening at the middle of the bridge during freakin’ rush hour of all times, and he needs to deliver a pizza, but they’re stuck.

Joyful Mongoose: Well, I guess that makes sense.
Joyful Mongoose: If you really need to get past, You could probably go under the truck up ahead
Joyful Mongoose: It may be far too wide to slip past, but it is also so tall, you should be able to duck under the truck and cross the rest of the way over the bridge.
Joyful Mongoose: But be careful not to be too disruptive like you are with me.
Joyful Mongoose: P.I. Zzander is watching right now!


Jerry’s eyes widen at that statement. Zzander is here? The guy who arrested him during the previous pizza delivery? Where? He looks among the crowd and doesn’t see him anywhere, and asks where he is after giving up looking around.

Joyful Mongoose: Oh, he’s working undercover in that blue car next to your Moped!

Jerry looks over at the blue car. Isn’t that the same blue car that has been following him since the gosling incident? How long have he been following him? And how sure can he be that it is Zzander since he can’t see through the window for whatever reason? He asks the mongoose how she can be so sure he’s undercover.

Joyful Mongoose: Well, it’s because he’s not in a police car.
Joyful Mongoose: Ergo, he’s in that blue car!
Joyful Mongoose: It’s logic really!
Joyful Mongoose: Oh! The music is picking up!
Joyful Mongoose: Can’t talk now! I’m having a blast!


I mean, Jerry GUESSES that makes sense, even if she completely missed the point of his question. But whatever, Jerry will just assume that the guy in the blue car near him is really P.I. Zzander, and that he’ll have to assume that he will be the next SITUATION to deal with after this one. Jerry starts wondering some troubling thoughts if he might have done anything illegal under Zzander’s watchful eye over him during the drive.

You now know that P.I. Zzander is most likely going to be your next SITUATION
- he’s probably also been watching you, and most likely still is. If you’ve done anything illegal, or about to, you better think of an excuse!



Next, Jerry moves over to the Sock Snail as he doesn’t know what a cheese grater might think about the pizza full of grated cheese he is holding… unless that is speciesist in which case, err… the excuse is snails are interesting and Jerry wants to see the snail. He asks the snail why he’s exercising here when he has to carry his huge shell everywhere every day. Sock Snail seems confused

Sock Snail: Huh? What? Shell? I don’t have a shell. I’m a slug!
Sock Snail: what are you talking about?


Jerry points out the shell that is clearly on the snail’s back and asks how he doesn’t realize he’s had such a heavy shell there in the first place. The snail looks behind and his eyes widened

Sock Snail: What the hell!? What is that?! How did that get there?! Get it off!

Jerry is about to comply and moves to remove the shell when suddenly it starts moving and a giant hermit crab pops out of the shell, shocking him, Mary, and the Sock Snail!

Hermit crab: AH FUCK! The jig is up!!

The hermit crab quickly makes a move towards the Snail’s neck and puts the poor snail’s neck between his pincers.

Hermit crab: Listen, slimey!
Sock Slug: AHHHH!
Hermit Crab: SUSH! Don’t be squealin’ to no cops about this!
Hermit Crab: Now listen! Not another word! Here’s the deal
Hermit Crab: until the heat dies down…
Hermit Crab: I will be hitchin’ a ride here on your back, and you will be acting natural as a snail
Hermit Crab: Simply just pretend I’m not here for a while, and nobody has to die, That simple… Capiche?!


Sock slug nods very quickly, and looks over at Jerry with sad eyes asking for help. The hermit crab notices where he is staring and his eyebrows furrow at Jerry the best way a hermit crab could.

Hermit Crab: AH FUCK! A witness!
Hermit Crab: Listen, slim!


Jerry sneezes

Hermit Crab: SUSH! Don’t be squealin’ to no cops about this!
Hermit Crab: Now listen! Not another word! Here’s the deal
Hermit Crab: until the heat dies down…
Hermit Crab: I can’t be holding this diamond seashell in my HAMMER SPACE
Hermit Crab: Simply just take this seashell that I totally didn’t steal from the MUSHEUM and definitely found on the beach, and Slimey here doesn’t have to die, You didn’t get it from me if anyone asks. That simple… Capiche?!


Sock slug nods very aggressively at Jerry, hoping he’ll agree to the hermit crab’s terms. Jerry just shrugs and takes it. He’s about to ask them another question, but the Hermit crab hides back into his shell on the Sock Slug’s back, and the Sock Slug just waves Jerry away. Ah well,

Mary: Shouldn’t we help him, boss?

Jerry just shrugs. Sock Slug has his SITUATIONS to deal with, and Jerry has his own. He just leaves them without a second thought.

Jerry also realizes he doesn’t have room in his hammerspace for a giant diamond seashell, so he’ll have to decide whether to keep it and throw one of his or Gerbera’s items away, or throw the seashell over the bridge back into the sea where it belongs. He obviously cannot fit it in his pants pocket.

YOU GOT A VALUABLE AND DURABLE DIAMOND SEASHELL! (if you want it that is)
- Sell it at a black market to make a LOT of ₵A$H (Jerry thinks there is one at both CHECKPOINTS. Though the second CHECKPOINT will most likely give more money for it) using it will decrease its value though
- You can return it to the MUSHEUM for something good to happen as long as you don’t use it until then (near the second checkpoint)!
- You can use it to hide in for stealth, or to protect yourself from attacks very easily (but it’s value will go down)
- Jerry isn’t giving it to P.I. Zzander, he’s an asshole who will take all the credit.

Finally, Jerry and Mary reach the truck. And just like the Joyful Mongoose said, he should be able to duck right under. Jerry wonders how a giant truck that is able to cover three lanes could even get here. But whatever, this situation was actually pretty easy to take care of.

BAM!

Perhaps a little too easy.

Mr. Armstrong, after ordering his audience to do several squats and letting Rocio take over as he takes care of something, jumps down and pounds the ground with his fist upon landing in front of Jerry, causing a shockwave that makes Jerry and Mary trip and fall right on their asses.

Mary: Wahh! That landing was so strong, he caused cracks on the ground!
Mary: J… just how powerful is he!?
Mary: B-boss! He’s coming right towards us!

Before Jerry could get up, Mr. Armstrong picks Jerry up by his shirt to bring him to his eye level.

Mr. Armstrong: Hello! Seeing as you’re new here I’d like to welcome you to my aerobics exercise,
Mr. Armstrong: Listen, I can’t have you disrupting my students like you have been doing.
Mr. Armstrong: It isn’t fair to them, you know? They all have had a long hard day at work
Mr. Armstrong: And it gives these poor people no time to burn calories after the end of a long work day
Mr. Armstrong: As such, I need to make sure everyone is healthy before I can let them pass.


Jerry explains to Mr. Armstrong he actually has a pizza to deliver that a customer is waiting for. Mr. Armstrong gives Jerry a look of disappointment in response.

Mr. Armstrong: *Sigh* That is a very unhealthy meal, you know?
Mr. Armstrong: way too greasy
Mr. Armstrong: I’m sure your customer will understand if you wait a couple more updates to exercise.


Jerry disagrees as he has to make sure this particular delivery is perfect. And besides, he is healthy enough, he doesn’t need to exercise. He gets enough of it running all over the city to deliver pizzas.

Mr. Armstrong: Really now? But you’re all skin and bone. I don’t think I see a single hint of a muscle on you… No offense.
Mr. Armstrong: If you really think you’re strong and healthy enough to deliver pizzas in this town, then how about you challenge and beat me in a physical activity?
Mr. Armstrong: Could be anything you want, jumping-jacks’ endurance competition, sit-ups or push-ups competition, Any physical activity you want
Mr. Armstrong: Just as long as you can prove to me you are strong enough to face the world!
Mr. Armstrong: Otherwise, I can’t in good faith let you leave and face the dangers without being able to protect yourself physically.

Mr. Armstrong sets Jerry down, and awaits Jerry’s response.

Jerry has failed to get out of the SITUATION and it has turned into a PROBLEM, wasting an UPDATE.
Normally, he would be able to get out of the problem by the next update, but it looks like Jerry is now in another SITUATION which could delay the PROBLEM further if he’s SABOTAGED

Sabotage: Attempt to convince Armstrong of the error of his ways by showing him the joys of a delicious grease-free decoy pizza.

No. 1026192 ID: 8483cf

I vote HELP! We should eat the illegal donut now so P.I. Zzander doesn't see us eat it later. If sabotage wins instead, Armstrong is able to keep up with Jerry with a generous amount of Rocio's magic fairy dust via INCREDIBLE CHEERLEADING. It's not illegal, but it does fill him with DRILL SERGEANT CHEERLEADER HYPE.

Take it the diamond seashell, but do NOT use the diamond seashell. Let's try and get it back to the Musheum. I propose getting rid of the pizza bomb, because bombs are bad mmkay

The physical challenge is... TONGUE TWISTERS! Whoever can say the most complicated sentence in the shortest amount of time is the winner. Tongue flexibility is important!

(The donut is so illegal because it gives people super talking speed, meaning donut'd politicians have an performance-enhancing edge in filibustering their opponents' public pizza policies)

Do NOT use the free help points or sabotage points.

In a shock to nobody, I vote SABOTAGE!

I agree with Tongue Twisters, but I disagree with using an item. If we are to take the seashell, it's simple what we need do.

...Just hold it.

Don't put it in hammerspace, just put it on top of the pizza box. If it's too heavy, put the decoy pizza on top and store the shell in hammerspace. You've probably had to deliver multiple pizzas at once before, you can hold two for a while.

If Sabo wins, Jerry easily whips up the best tongue twisters, easily defeating Mr. Armstrong. But cockiness never ends well for him, and Jerry ends up spinning a rather insulting one about either Mr. Armstrong or his fairy GF. Whoever he chooses, Rocio gets PISSED, and decides that the next exercise for everyone will be 100 punches to the back of Jerry's head. Or she fights him herself, lifting him up into the air with fairy dust. Jerry will have to find an escape while gravity isn't on his side.

If HELP wins, Jerry can dominate at the tongue twister challenge and be granted escape. Buuuut since P.I. Zzander is right there watching us, we'll probably be stuck here in a new situation for a bit longer.

Help: Jerry threatens to throw a pizza bomb at the crowd, immediately fattening them up and undoing Armstrong's hours of involuntary sweaty gym class! Armstrong's lack of wisdom causes him to mindlessly believe Jerry and he backs the heck off!

If it fails, the Pizza Bomb causes everyone to enhance knockers gain weight due to placebo effects, causing Armstrong to freak out and unleash his "non-descript oppressive regime" ancestry and force everyone into a cult of military muscles for 5,000 years! (three updates)

HELP!

The physical challenge should be tongue twisters. You were in the underground tongue twister championships as the reigning champ. You don't like to talk about it because it's a dark, dark, part of your life. But you were the champ for a reason, no one could out tongue twist you, No One Alive Anyway. He's bound to mess up and it might take an update to do it, but you've got this. Swap the shell with the decoy pizza and stack it on your pizza. If he gets angry at you, use the decoy za to HELP, showing that it's not at all greasy, and thus is healthier!

If Sabotage wins though, maybe P.I. Zander is following you because of the illegal powdered donut and has been tracking it's owner in order to collect the fabled BAG OF ILLEGAL PASTIRES. He'll accidentally let it slip, but then cover it up with legalese. You'll certainly be in a pickle for sure! (and then the goslings will arrive in an update after, so things might get... feathery)

Help vote: use the donut for a tongue twister competition. Since Zzander is going to be our next situation, I think him coming across us under the influence of an illegal donut in a sugar crash would make for some fun times for his situation.

And yeah, switch an item for the seashell. Not sure which though.

FOUR vote points for HELP and THREE vote points for SABOTAGE.

there were two votes to use a POWDERED DONUT from the HELP TEAM, so you'll be using that for an extra SEVEN HELP points (I'm aware there was one vote against using that, but because it was from the SABOTAGE VOTING TEAM, I didn't count that. Sorry, but hey, you'll be having a SUGAR CRASH in the next UPDATE which will give you extra SABOTAGE points next time, so there's that.) Hoping everyone is alright with this, if there's any complaints after the calculations of the votes and diceroll, I will reevaluate things and consider a recount and re-roll, as I want people to have fun

overall so far, the HELP POINTS are 11, and SABOTAGE points are 3

...

Actually probably, no need to roll the dice, if SABOTAGE gets 6 points from the roll, they'd get 9 points, which wouldn't beat the 11 points HELP already has, so...

HELP wins for having too many points to be beaten by a dice roll

Votes are locked in and you can no longer vote, BUT you can still suggest ideas on what will happen (ILLEGAL POWDERED DONUT has to be used tho).

If you previously suggested an idea for how Jerry gets SABOTAGED, you can still suggest an idea for how Jerry gets HELP trying to get passed MR. ARMSTRONG'S SEMI TRUCK.

An like I said, if there are any complaints about how this was handled, I'll consider it greatly and consider doing a recount on the votes and a dice roll, specifically how I handled the votes using the powdered donut. I want people to have fun with this.

>I vote HELP! We should eat the illegal donut now so P.I. Zzander doesn't see us eat it later.

To everyone who wanted to eat the illegally sweet doughnut for this reason, I have some terrible news for you.

He's right there.

He's in the car, he's right there.

And you're right in front of everyone, with one of the trainers everybody is watching.

And it's a POWDERED Donut, which means no matter how hard you try, your face is going to be covered in evidence after you eat it.

All of this is to say: As the permanent saboteur of this quest I greatly appreciate your efforts to SABOTAGE our next situation before it can even start.

Well, okay. So as far as the giant VALUABLE AND DURABLE DIAMOND SEASHELL goes, Jerry decides to replace the TASTY CARDBOARD DECOY PIZZA for the seashell inside his hammerspace. But instead of throwing the cardboard pizza away, he instead puts it on top of the pizza box.
Is this cheating? Who knows, and who cares?! If anything, we’re advocating AGAINST LITTERING by doing this, so this gets a pass. How thoughtful!
However, now that it is resting atop the pizza box, there could be a 20% chance that Jerry could drop it each update unless he puts it back in his hammerspace, or puts it inside the pizza box (which would lower the temperature of the pizza if he opens the pizza box without using the leftovers to use Antonio’s power to keep the temperature stable), soooo, yeah, be careful not to drop it, because then this promotion for fighting against littering will be a big fat lie, and we don’t want that.

Anyways, Jerry considers Mr. Armstrong’s proposal for a physical competition for a moment. Winning a physical competition would let Jerry pass without causing any issues with the strong guy or the participants…

but… comparing his physic with Mr. Armstrong… how would Jerry even stand a chance? What kind of competition involving physical movements could Jerry excel at against a buff manly man like Mr. Armstrong? what path should he take? It seems like all the possibilities are closed off to him…
Unless…
Jerry remembers the Illegal powdered donut, and sighs. This donut would be a perfect solution for a SITUATION like this. However, he is hesitant in using it as he saved a LOT of ₵A$H at the black market that his friend Harmon works at to buy this thing. Not only that, these donuts are especially hard to come by. He’s still kicking himself over losing his previous ILLEGAL POWDRED DONUT somewhere after hiding it from a Zzander in a pizza box and losing it during a strange party 1-6 months ago.
He was actually really hoping to eat his current donut for recreational purposes with a buddy, but he just never found the opportunity to do so. He thinks he was once told that there are actually 7 different kinds of ILLEGAL POWDERED DONUTS, each giving a person a different kind of SUGAR RUSH, and each giving an intense feeling of EUPHORIA during a SUGAR COMA after the SUGAR RUSH, perfect for someone like him who works the demanding job of a pizza courier to relieve stress. He forgot what number this particular donut was… 6? 3? Not that Jerry cares enough to collect these things and keep track.

Eating this particular ILLEGAL POWDERED DONUT would give him a SUGAR RUSH so intense, that his perception of time in his subconscious would travel faster than his actual conscious, being able to travel through multiple timelines at once and giving Jerry insight of which choices he should make at the present time. Does that make sense? Nope! But that’s what it does to a person regardless!

Jerry takes the Illegal donut out of his hammerspace, but then considers one thing: there are actually a lot of witnesses right now about to see him eat an ILLEGAL donut, isn’t there? If people were to see him eat it, and realize the donut is Illegal, that could spell a PROBLEM for him, especially after knowing that Zzander has been watching him since the start of this pizza delivery…

But maybe perhaps it’d be okay if he was smart about it? His back is turned away from everyone after all, and most the participants is more focused on Rocio the bossy fairy who is giving orders atop the truck right now over focusing on Jerry and Mr. Armstrong. And perhaps Zzander is too far away to even notice the donut… And even if he did notice, how can he tell a regular ol’ powdered donut from an Illegal powdered donut from this distance anyways? In fact, it might be a good way to get rid of it by eating it now in case Zzander stops Jerry in the next situation.

With these facts in mind, Jerry is now convinced to eat the ILLEGAL POWDERED DONUT, even if he’ll feel remorse for not being able to eat it for fun at his own time later. He immediately slouches forward to hide himself eating it from everyone. As he quickly munches away, the donut unfortunately explodes into a mini sugary mess covering part of Jerry’s face and shirt with powder. Yeah, Jerry forgot these things are messy to eat, which could be a PROBLEM later if Zzander stops and asks him questions about it, but meh, he’ll cross that bridge after he crosses this bridge… literally!

Mr. Armstrong: Hey, something with that much sugar can’t be healthy for you!
Mr. Armstrong: Just what are you trying to prove here? This is all the more reason for you to take some UPDATES to burn those excess calories, you know?


Suddenly, Jerry's eyes widen, his blood and heart start pumping at a higher rate, and already he is starting to tremble everywhere in his entire body from the surplus of energy he received. And not only that, he can also feel his subconscious thoughts traveling faster than he can keep up, uncontrollably traveling to-and-fro in many different directions, with visions of many different vivid outcomes racing through his thoughts all at once… It doesn’t take long for him to realize that these are actually different TIMELINES that his subconscious is traveling through in intense speeds, and relaying back to him. It takes a little bit to keep up with what his subconscious is relaying to him, but Jerry thinks he’s able to grasp at the different outcomes.
The majority of these visions seem to be leading to bad timelines that would turn this SITUATION into another PROBLEM. But he does see some favorable outcomes, and most of those favorable outcomes are repeating a certain action for him to take.

With confidence, Jerry challenges Mr. Armstrong to a TOUNGE TWISTER COMPETITION! I mean, yeah, that makes sense to Jerry now that he thinks about it! One would be moving their tongue constantly and intensely when tongue twisting, so that counts as physical movement, right? And the tongue is the strongest muscle in the body, right? Or is that a myth? Eh, whateves.
Plus, after spending so much time with his fast-talking uncle throughout the years, Jerry has learned the art of fast talking, and even entered some underground tongue twister competitions, even winning some of them as a champion. In fact, he has a tattoo to prove it… on his tongue somewhere!

Mr. Armstrong laughs at the suggestion Jerry made

Mr. Armstrong: You think just because you’re picking a competition that only relies on intense tongue movement that you found a loophole?
Mr. Armstrong: You’re wrong. In fact, I think you should know that when I say I train every muscle in my body, I really mean EVERY muscle, including tongue muscles!
Mr. Armstrong: For me, every Thursday is tongue day!
Rocio: *swoon*
Mr. Armstrong: I do tongue curls, tongue pull ups, tongue push-ups, tongue sit-ups,
Rocio: and he does a lot more exercises with that tongue of his than that with me, if you catch my drift… hee hee hee
Mr. Armstrong: *AHEM* So if you think I won’t be able to keep up, you’re in for a nasty surprise
Mr. Armstrong: I’ll accept your challenge… if you dare not to get cold feet, dude.


Jerry thinks Mr. Armsrong already revealed a nasty surprise. Did he just admitted he licks the floor? and how does one even do a “tongue sit up”? You know what, forget it! Jerry confirms he is sure about the competition quickly so he doesn’t have to think further on how Mr. Armstrong uses his tongue

Mr. Armstrong: Great! Haven’t had a competition in a while to flex in
Mr. Armstrong: Rocio, our microphones, please!
Rocio: Ooooh! YEAH! coming right up, beefkins! Just a simple matter of summoning them with my fairy magic!


Rocio uses her fairy magic to put on a light show, and after a puff of blinding smoke-like fairy dust blinding everyone… and then she just pulls out the two microphones from her HAMMERSPACIAL DIMENSION, one for Jerry, and one for Mr. Armstrong.

Rocio: LISTEN UP! Here are the rules: both of you come up with a tongue twister for their opponent to repeat, and then you must repeat the phrase given to you multiple times until you slow down a considerable amount, or slip over your words!
Rocio: Now get your phrases ready, boys!


Mr. Armstrong immediately comes up with his tongue twister for Jerry to repeat: “Carol carries barrels of apparels for Darryl”. Wow, that’s a toughie! Hopefully under the effects of the sugar rush to talk fast, and with his prescience guiding him when to slow down a little in some parts of the phrase, he should be able to pass.

Meanwhile, Jerry following his prescience, comes up with his own tongue twister: “Risa Meets with Lisa Eating greasy cheesy pizza… Jerry is highly disappointed with his prescience that the best it could come up with was something pizza related, and it doesn’t seem like it would be a challenge for Mr. Armstrong in comparison to the tongue twister Jerry got from him… but whatever works he guesses, this is what constitutes as a good timeline he guesses, so why question it?

Rocio: Alright, so now that you both got your words! it’s now time to get those tongues moving! Show him what your made of, Armstrong! READY GO!

And right off the bat, Mr. Armstrong starts repeating his phrase effortlessly while Jerry, following his prescience as his guide, repeats his own phrase as he pays close attention to his subconscious on where he should slightly slow down and what moments to breathe. His SUGAR RUSH is also allowing him to repeat his tongue twister with effortless speed. It’s no problem, but how long can he last? Can he last the entire update especially after giving Mr. Armstrong a seemingly easier phrase?

But wait, was it really that easy for Mr. Armstrong? Jerry notices that whenever Mr. Armstrong says the phrase “Greasy Cheesy Pizza” he has a face of disgust. Jerry smiles as he now understands why his prescience had him choose this phrase: Mr. Armstrong can’t STAND anything unhealthy. All Jerry has to do is keep up the pace, and wait until his opponent cracks under the pressure over the idea of an unhealthy greasy pizza!

Mr. Armstrong: RisameetswithLisaeating greasy cheesy pizza
Mr. Armstrong: RisameetswithLisaeating greasy… cheesy… pizza
Mr. Armstrong: RisameetswithLisaeating GREASY… NO! I CAN’T ALLOW THIS!
Mr. Armstrong: My tongue feels tainted over promoting the idea of eating such unhealthy filth with a phrase like that!
Mr. Armstrong: Hell, I can even see some of my students in the front row smacking their lips for a pizza!
Mr. Armstrong: This is NOT what I wanted to instill in people’s mind in this aerobics exercise
Mr. Armstrong: I yield… you win… you monster!


Mr. Armstrong adopts the OTL pose in shame as Jerry, still trembling from the energy boost, raises his arms in victory

Mary: Boss! You did it!
Mary: That was a smart move! I didn’t account for thinking outside the box like that!
Rocio: Awwww, come ON!


The crowd boos Jerry after he kind of ruined their exercises by interrupting the session with a tongue twister competition, and defeating Mr. Armstrong like that… but hey, at least he can pass now, good for him!

Mr. Armstrong: You showed me that raw strength isn’t everything,
Mr. Armstrong: and sometimes, it really is mind over matter in some cases
Mr. Armstrong: But only SOME!


Message from PEA: Actually, it was because of illicit donuts, but don’t let Mr. Armstrong know that… shhhhh...

Mr. Armstrong: In any case, I deem myself unworthy to teach this class any further after this humiliating defeat.
Mr. Armstrong: So I’ll end the exercise for now to rethink things, and let you pass.
Rocio: Awwww, but I want order these people some moooooore! Come on!


Mr. Armstrong ducks under the truck, and lifts the entire ginormous truck with just his right arm.

Mary: WHOA, just how POWERFUL is he anyway?! Is he even mortal?!
Mr. Armstrong: I’ll be letting people pass after you cross the bridge. Farewell!
Mr. Armstrong: And keep training that brain of yours!
Mr. Armstrong: Though, I still highly recommend you work out now and then… I’d be happy to train you if you want to come to one of my aerobics classes and put some muscle under that skin!


Jerry says he’ll sleep on it

Mr. Armstrong: Hey, I don’t allow sleeping in my classes, ahahahahah!

Jerry didn’t laugh, and he runs through the bridge after Mary climbs on his shoulders, wondering if Mr. Armstrong lifting the damn truck was really necessary when he could just duck under… eh, maybe Armstrong is just flexing his dominant strength on Jerry to compensate for his loss.

Mary looks behind as the crowd of cars gets further away
Mary: Hey wait, shouldn’t we get back to Gerbera and drive the rest of the way?

Jerry says that his prescience told him that ditching the moped was the best choice out of all the timelines. Though that wasn’t the truth, there were some perfectly good timelines that told him to get back on the moped with Gerbera, but he wanted to take a timeline that didn’t require him to ride the moped to get away from the flower for a while. He needs a break from them.

Mary raises and eyebrow, but nods.
Mary: well, okay…
Mary: but can you please slow down a little at least?!
Mary: I can barely hold on to you!


Jerry, still under the effects of a SUGAR RUSH still has enough energy to run swiftly through the streets of NEW CRUST CITY, and with his Prescience, he can now predict which turns to take, and where certain shortcuts he’s never knew existed before to take. He can feel it, he is so very close to the first checkpoint!

But then from behind him, sirens start blaring. Looking behind is the same blue car that’s been following him for a while. Oh no, is that P.I. Zzander?! How the fuck did he catch up with Jerry?!
But now that Jerry thinks about it, he noticed that he is slowing down and getting a little bit tired, and his pulse is slowing down, but he’s also starting to feel… elated? Oh no, is the donut beginning to lose it’s effects at a time like this?!

P.i. Zzander rolls down his window, and pokes his head out with his megaphone in hand, and starts yelling into it.

P.I. Zzander: STOP, IN THE NAME OF THE LAW!
P.I. Zzander: YOU, POODLE GIRL WITH THE GLASSES!
P.I. Zzander: YOU ARE DRIVING OVER THE SPEED LIMIT!
P.I. Zzander: PULL YOUR PIZZA DELIVERY MAN OVER NOW!
P.I. Zander: AND FACE THE JUSTICE OF THE GREAT P.I. ZZANDER!
Mary: What? Uhh *blush* I’m not a lady… but… do I make for a cute woman?
Mary: sh… should we stop? It is the honest thing to do
Mary: …
Mary: Oh no… but you still got that illegal sugar substance all over you!
Mary: What do we do?!

Crap! it really is P.I. Zzander. A detective who is always finding ways to accuse Jerry of crime through misunderstandings or otherwise. And whenever he suspects Jerry of wrongdoing, he always does a search of his belongings, confiscating anything he finds suspicious, and even searches through the pizza box for anything illegal, causing the pizza’s temperature to lower. Jerry is going to need to figure out how to deal with P.I. Zzander, especially under the SUGAR COMA debuff. He hopes he can hold out until he reaches the checkpoint.
JERRY IS NOW IN A SITUATION!

IMPORTANT NOTES PLZ READ:
- After thinking over it for a few updates, I decided I’m changing the rules on how items will work. Previously, I had items list the amount of SABOTAGE and HELP points, and would give you all points for both SABOTAGE and HELP whenever it’s chosen. But I realize for example that having an item with 5 HELP points and 2 SABOTAGE points would be the same as just listing it as 3 HELP POINTS. That said, I’ve decided to list each item as giving you one or the other.
HOWEVER, there will still be items that will give you HELP POINTS, and SABOTAGE points. For those examples, you will only be getting one or the other depending on what team wants that item. So, for example, if team HELP wants an item that has 6 HELP POINTS, and 5 SABOTAGE POINTS, I will only be giving you 6 HELP POINTS without giving you the 5 SABOTAGE POINTS… unless SABOTAGE also votes to use that item, in which case you’re getting both

- JERRY IS GOING TO BE CRASHING INTO A SUGAR COMA next update, as such his actions will be hindered, and therefore, you have been given 5 SABOTAGE POINTS this round! He will be in a state of being half-asleep, and may have part of his dreams intercept his perception of reality… whatever that means

- Because you managed to move Jerry forward, he has put some distance away from the GOSLING TIDAL WAVE and therefore, the Gosling Tidal wave will arrive and put Jerry in a SITUATION by UPDATE 9. Jerry will be safe from it once he reaches the FIRST CHECKPOINT

- Gerbera is currently on their way. If you do not get out of this SITUATION, they will catch up to help Jerry in UPDATE 8. However, if you manage to get Jerry out of this SITUATION, they’ll catch up with Jerry by UPDATE 9 unless you move further away.

- Just so you know: when Jerry reaches the CHECKPOINT, he will be allowed to take a break to spend some updates buying or selling items at a store and/or a black market, stopping at the bank, talk to his friends Harmon and Vincent and perhaps try to recruit them, and do other stuff that isn’t listed here. You’ll be allowed to do 3 actions per update during that time (like doing shopping, visit a bank, and talk to Harmon and Vincent in the same update)

-The TASTY DECOY CARDBOARD PIZZA is still on top of the Pizza Box, and as long as it remains there, it’ll have a 20% chance of falling off, thus making Jerry lose the item unless you decide to put in back into his HAMMERSPACIAL DIMENSION.

- You should have room to put one item in your HAMMERSPACIAL DIMENSION now that you used the ILLEGAL POWDERED DONUT… You can put your cardboard pizza in there… unless you want to stuff Mary in there for some reason, it registers him as an item!

Options

>- HELP JERRY
(optional: come up with an idea how if you vote this. You can also write up a SABOTAGE idea in case HELP loses. One vote for HELP adds one point to HELP)

>- SABOTAGE JERRY

>-USE AN ITEM:

NOTE: Gerbera is too far away, so you can’t use his items!

PIZZA BOMB
Mary: We can probably use this to destroy his car…
Mary: But I think in the long run, it’s a very bad idea it’ll cause more harm than good, they might start treating you as a criminal for assault from here on out
Mary: And dealing with Purr Feckt isn’t going to be easy if this succeeds…
Mary: Just… if you use this, don’t drag me into this, I don’t want to be an accomplice, this will all be on you.
Mary: Maybe hide me in your HAMMERSPACE if you do this? As long as you let me out later.
HELP: 5

STALE LEFTOVERS
Mary: Would feeding Zzander free leftovers help?
Mary: Umm… probably not. It’s stale and he most likely won’t like it
HELP: 1 SABOTAGE: 3

PURR FECKT’S PURSE (Chances Purr Feckt will find out Jerry used her purse currently: 15%)
Mary: Umm… It’s probably a really really bad idea to be showing this off to P.I. Zzander, whether we find something that’ll help us or not.
Mary: You said Zzander and Purr Feckt work together often, correct? Probably won’t be good to use it then.
Mary: And to add to my argument, do you really want Purr Feckt to see P.I. Zzander in a positive light once he finds out you’ve been using It and tattles on you to Purr Feckt?
Mary: If you do use this, please hide me in your HAMMERSPACE at least, I don’t want to be blamed and lose my chances at going home.
- Write down what you want inside and list their SABOTAGE or HELP points, and how it will help or sabotage you. Preferably keep this one with more help points than sabotage plz.
-Keep in mind your percentage of Purr Feckt finding out you rummaged through her purse will increase
-P.I. Zzander will most likely tell Purr Feckt Jerry is using her purse, skyrocketing that percentage.


TASTY DECOY CARDBOARD PIZZA
Mary: What if we toss the cardboard pizza at his window, obscuring his view?
Mary: He might slow down, and give us a chance to get away and lose him
Mary: But it all depends if the cardboard manages to stay on or not
HELP: 4 SABOTAGE 4

VALUABLE AND DURABLE DIAMOND SEASHELL
Mary: You said he has an inflated ego?
Mary: In that case, what if we give him the diamond and just let him take the credit for returning it?
Mary: Just as long as we do a good job at explaining how we got it so he doesn’t accuse us of stealing
Mary: Otherwise, he might think we have stolen it… unless they know that hermit crab had stolen it earlier beforehand…
Jerry really doesn’t want to do this as he wants to sell it at a black market, or return it to the Musheum himself, but understands it could be one way to escape the SITUATION, especially under the condition he’s going in.
HELP: 5 SABOTAGE: 5

Jerry’s wallet (30 ₵A$H from Jerry)
Mary: Maybe we can pay a bribe to let us go?
Mary: But I think it depends on how much ₵A$H we decide to give him
Mary: and we might have to use one of our 3 actions in one of our UPDATES at the CHECKPOINT to stop at the bank to withdraw some ₵A$H
HELP: 1-6, depending on how much you give him.

JERRY'S SMARTPHONE
Mary: OH! We can call that Sweaty Kitty to help mediate our argument with P.I. Zzander, and come to an agreement to get us off the hook
Mary: just remember we have to pay the person she sends to us 10 ₵A$H for her services…
Mary: unless she fails to help, in which case it’s free!
Mary:…
Mary: you did get that cat’s name, right?
Whoops, Jerry forgot.

But as for the actual choice:

HELP

Get that pizza spirit to help, give him the leftovers and maybe, just maybe, you'll reach your friends since Antonio will make it easier on you.

If Sabotage wins, then I think what happens is that Jerry misunderstands his precognition from the donut and turns into an alley, it sees the timeline where there wasn't a fence but now there is and PI Zzander can corner him, making the situation into a PROBLEM

- Send Sweaty Kitty a text saying “Just gave Armstrong a tongue lashing :pppppppppppp”
- Have Mary lick the sugar, lick iiiiiiiit
- We gotta reach the first checkpoint before we’re drowning in Ryan Goslings! I vote HELP, and to enlist the aid of ANTONIO and use the leftovers! Antonio really wants to pay this guy back, let’s indulge him.
- If SABOTAGE wins, Jerry is so grossed out by Mary licking him that he gets the HEEBIE JEEBIES, summoning ASK JEEBIES instead of ANTONIO. JEEBIES has been out of work for so long that he only gives bad mid-2000’s era advice.

My vote of SABOTAGE need not even be said at this point.

I'm going to strategically suggest that we use our bonus SABOTAGE points to even the score. Currently the buffs and debuffs look like this:

Sugar Coma: -5
Antonio (most voted option so far): +7 (Not listed, but assumed based on previous posts)
Mary licks: +1 (but also three bonus SABO points for later)
TOTAL: +3


I'm going to suggest that we use the 3 SABO Points we get from Mary to level the playing field and leave VOTES as the only influence this round, and still leaving us with the 10 SABO bonus votes that Sweaty Kitty gave us earlier.

GENERAL STUFF:

-Put the Decoy Pizza back in HAMMERSPACE. We really didn't need to remove it since we made room for the shell by eating the doughnut, there's space for it. And we're definitely getting Mary licks, so he's not going in there.

-I also support texting Sweaty Kitty about how much of an eggsucker P.I. Zzander is, selfie included. Maybe ask her what her name is to, pointing out that she never gave it during your whole interaction earlier. (My only suggestion for her name is that it has to keep the initials S.K.)

Even if we use Antonio, we should stop for Zzander and ask her about Purr Feckt. We need to give Gerbera a chance to catch up anyways. Granted, we can only do this if HELP wins, but if it does then take full advantage.

-Don't use the leftovers to summon Antonio, just open the box a bit. Pizza can be re-heated, but the leftovers are just gone if you use them. There's a lot you could probably do with them if you hold onto them for a bit longer. (Besides, even if Jerry doesn't know this, the quality of the pizza isn't what his clients are really focused on rn, moreso the handoff itself)

Alright, both ideas are gonna start the same but veer off into different directions, so here's the beginning:

You pull over and stop to talk to P.I. Zzander, summoning Antonio for assistance shaking off his charges. Zzander starts laying it all out: Running over a pedestrian, unsafe driving, assault on a group of innocent LARPers, Failing to share insurance info after a traffic accident, disrupting a public event, and suspicion of having consumed an illegal quantity of sugar.

You start fighting all the charges, while waiting for Antonio to do his thing. You didn't run over a pedestrian, you were about to be assaulted and fled the scene, only running him over because you could not reverse to safety fast enough. The unsafe driving was not your fault but the fault of the driver behind you literally driving into you. You participated in no assault nor did you witness any, as you kept your eyes on the road like a responsible driver. You know the LARPers and will totally be talking to them later about the incident when you aren't on the clock (this is a lie, but he can't prove it). You simply participated in the event in your own way, and it isn't your fault that you weren't permitted to simply leave like you'd planned to. And finally, you certainly haven't consumed anything illegal, and you find the very allegation offensive.

This will all be very difficult to get across in your current state, so have Mary back you up where you're too tired to respond appropriately. He's cute and lovable, even if he can't think up the same points as you he'll probably still be able to convince Zzander you're not up to any nefarious deeds.

That's when he drops the bomb on you: He has a drug test that he can use to check Jerry's blood sugar. Any illegal substances will be exposed.


IF SABOTAGE WINS:

Antonio decides to spook Zzander away using creepy ghost tricks. It works! Zzander runs to the car... and rushes back with a POLTERGEIST EXPULSION ARMAMENT, the latest in spirit removal technology, and takes a shot at Antonio. Not wanting to be blasted, your friend peaces out, vanishing back into the box. This unfortunately means that the blast goes past where Antonio was and hits Jerry,

The result? Jerry's spirit literally gets expelled from his body, leaving it as fair game for any other spirits interested in inhabiting it. Antonio thankfully isn't among those interested, he's already lived as a PIZZID delivery man once, and it sucked. Other wandering spirits are a lot more optimistic about life however.

Thus, the new PROBLEM presents itself: Jerry has to get back into his body before any spirits can possess it first. With some help from Antonio to make up for messing up the last SITUATION (free this time since Jerry won't have to summon him to this realm).

IF HELP WINS:

When Zzander goes to take blood from Jerry, Antonio jumpscares him, making Zzander accidentally stab himself with the needle by mistake. When the spirit leaves and Zzander tries to rectify the situation, Jerry points out that the kit clearly only has one needle, and that Zzander will need a new clean one before he can test Jerry. Sharing needles is super dangerous after all, something only done by junkies, AKA CRIMINALS!

This is frustrating to the P.I., but he tells Jerry that the prosecutor's office isn't far, and he'll be able to get a new test in just a few minutes. This gives an opening to ask about Purr Feckt, before Zzander finally hops back in his car and tells Jerry to wait where he is while he gets the new test.

...Jerry doesn't do that, instead hopping on the moped Gerbera rides in on moments after Zzander leaves and driving out of sight into whatever SITUATION awaits them next. Likely with Gerbera blubbering about Snowpea and needing to find their number and make a call to her to clear things up as soon as possible.

Sabotage Vote: Jerry throws the tasty decoy cardboard pizza, but it misses P.I. Zzander's windshield entirely and hits the tires, causing the car to skid out of control just as Jerry lapses into a sugar coma! P.I. Zzander searches all the belongings, going as far as to poke the pizza with a rusty used scalpel! Finally, he takes the seashell as 'evidence', which will now sit idly by in his cabinet until it is used as a bludgeon ten years later during a case that is worth a tenth of the soon-to-be-cracked pearl inside. Dumbass...

Help: The tasty decoy cardboard pizza hits the windshield, causing P.I. Zzander to punch the brakes. In his usual stupidity, P.I. Zzander spends the next two updates reading every line and scratch on the cardboard instead of doing his job.

No question about it, Jerry is definitely slowing down now, all the energy he used all at once is finally taking its toll on him, and he feels the weight of fatigue pushing down on him. However, at the same time, he feels a wave of euphoria, as if nothing in the world could dampen his mood anymore. Because of this, he is able to ignore the stress of the situation at hand despite being at a disadvantage, and take a silly selfie of himself being chased by P.I. Zzander with his smartphone. Afterwards, he sends the silly picture to Sweaty Kitty to make light of the SITUATION… with some funny filters of course!

He sends only a couple texts asking Sweaty Kitty something like: ‘whyyyyyyyyy does this guy suck so many eggs?’ and ‘also, just gave Armstrong a tongue lashing 👅’

Finally reaching his limit, he trips over himself from the fatigue as Mary falls off of him, and then he lays on the sidewalk, cursing that he couldn’t enjoy this in a more opportune time, but basking in the sun and in a daze of ecstasy nonetheless.

P.I. Zzander: Oh fuck!! Oh shit!! A CRASH!
P.I. Zzander: Damn it! She wasn’t wearing a seatbelt either!
P.I. Zzander: Shit, now I gotta report this and
P.I. Zzander: …
P.I. Zzander: Waaaaait… What am I even talking about? Pizza delivery guys aren’t vehicles!
P.I. Zzander: *Whew* Thank whatever god or goddess is up there. no need to report it then…
P.I. Zzander: But I still got to address this crash, and the speeding…
P.I. Zzander: In the name of JUSTICE!


Mary pulls himself off the floor, and squirms a bit.

Mary: Oh no… does he mean a sugar crash, or a vehicle crash?
Mary: I… I have to do something about this and save boss!!

Mary understands that if P.I. Zzander notices the illegal sugar powder littered all over his boss, Jerry could get ARRESTED, and then the quest would probably end up turning into one of those ‘escape the prison/facility/building’ quests that have been popular and done multiple times in the past instead of a ‘race against time’ type of quest… (not that there’s anything wrong with that, but we’ve seen plenty of those, and we probably don’t have 23 updates to tell it, y’know?)


So Mary, with the first thought that comes to mind, immediately rushes to Jerry, and Licks the sugar off of his face, and shirt… but gets carried away and licks him everywhere else… not because he liked to, but as a safety precaution… yep, tooooootally a safety precaution, isn’t it Mary?

Mary: *Slurp slurp Whoa… This is… SCRUMPTIOUS! This is like, too good!
Mary: How come the meals in my world don't taste this good… WHHHHYYYY?! *slurp slurp*



Nevermind. In tears of joy and remorse, Mary continues licking Jerry’s succulent body. Normally Jerry would be disturbed by this, but in his state of euphoria, he just lets it happen, but he’ll come to be disgusted by this in the future after his SUGAR COMA, making his interactions with Mary very awkward from here on out. Luckily, because sugar is a normal part of Mary’s species diet, it prevents him from getting a SUGAR RUSH… to an extent, he will still feel something out of it, and could kind of get a glimpse of the timelines like Jerry was seeing, but it isn’t as clear.


Currently, in his state of euphoria, Jerry feels relaxed from the sensation of Mary’s tongue massage, but he’ll come to become disturbed by this moment when he remembers it after his SUGAR COMA. As such, you have now been given 3 FREE SABOTAGE POINTS

As that happens, Jerry gets a text back from the Sweaty Kitty

Sweaty Kitty: Whoa! Is that P.I. Zzander?! LOL!
Sweaty Kitty: Hope he isn’t giving u too much trouble, he and Purr Feckt tend to be a bit too stern about things
Sweaty Kitty: Stay safe!
Sweaty Kitty: And yeah, and I saw what u and Mr. Armstrong was doing.
Sweaty Kitty: I wasn’t too happy that you were interrupting things, but your tongue twister was fun to watch.
Sweaty Kitty: Ur friend drove off looking for you, screaming ur name.
Sweaty Kitty: btw did they ketchup with you?
Sweaty Kitty: *catch up
Sweaty Kitty: anyway, cant talk now, Armstrong is letting us pass and I’m going to be driving soon
Sweaty Kitty: OH SHIT! GEESE CHIKS!!
Sweaty Kitty: *Chicks


Jerry has no idea what The Sweaty Kitty meant by that last statement. Did she find some sexy geese women? This he’s gotta see! He asks for pics.

Mary: Boss! Th…there isn’t time for that!
Mary: P.I. Zzander is heading this way!

Jerry can see the detective jumping out of the car and heading his way over with a smirk. Jerry explains to Mary that this guy always tries to look for the smallest of reasons to do a search on him for illegal items and confiscate stuff, often opening the pizza box as part of the search and cooling it down, that’s just the best case scenario. Otherwise, he gets arrested by the triangular detective.

Mary: Ummm… okay, I can barely see it…
Mary: But I’m seeing multiple timelines at the moment from the powder I licked off, and I can almost visualize a good timeline where…
Mary: Some kind of pink ghost thing is helping you? What is that?!
Mary: Are… are we being… HAUNTED?!


Jerry is well aware that this thing Mary is referring to is his late best friend, Antonio Devarara, the weird-pink-cyclopes-elephant-ghost-whatever-thing. Yeah, Jerry can just sacrifice his leftovers to keep the level of pizza temperature stable and summon the ghost to scare off P.I. Zzander. Unfortunately this will mean that he won’t have the leftovers to give to his friend Harmon and Vincent to make deals easier, but it is what it is.

P.I. Zzander arrives and glares at Mary

P.I. Zzander: Do you know why I pulled you over?
Mary: *gulp* uhhh, Y… You were announcing earlier that I was driving… Too fast?
P.I. Zzander: …
P.I. Zzander: Awwww shoot, that’s right. Darn it, that trick only works if I didn’t announce your crime ahead of time…
P.I. Zzander: uhhh, I mean
P.I. Zzander: OHHHH, A SMART-ALECK, EH?!
P.I. Zzander: Uhhh… in that case… there were plenty of other misdemeanors you and your friends cause, and your silence on those spells guilt
Mary: Eeek! Uh, nonononono! I was just… put on the spot you see.
Mary: N… NOT THAT IT’S A BAD THING OF COURSE! Oh loom…


Zzander exhales a sigh as he stares at Mary’s hesitations

P.I. Zzander: Calm down, lady…
Mary: ummm… I’m male… but I don’t mind the label…


Zzander blushes and coughs upon that realization

P.I. Zzander: *ahem* Excuse me sir.
P.I. Zzander: Anyway, can you tell me the other reasons why I pulled you over?
P.I. Zzander: not that I’m fishing for reasons to save face… *ahem*


Mary thinks it over… oh goddess, the PIZZA PARTY has done some bad things during the delivery, haven’t they? He thinks over their crimes, and thinks about how he can talk his way out of the majority of them, but the Illegal Donut… would Zzander know about it?

Mary: Ummm…. We ran over that one rat… But to be honest, it was self-defense!

Jerry mentions how Gerbera standing in the vehicle was self-defense too against Pam, and destroying her clothes was an accident

Mary: Uhh, yeah… And as far as disturbing the peace goes with that aerobics exercise… ummm…
Mary: Mr. Armstrong was disturbing our customer’s and our peace by preventing us from delivering the pizza?


P.I. Zzander nods as he stares deeply at Jerry, studying him. Afterwards, he gives Mary a glare

P.I. Zzander: I knew it, you’re hiding one very serious crime, missssss… ter


Mary is trembling in fear. Did he notice the Illegal Powdered Donut after all? Or did he notice they took the seashell? Regardless, he tries to defend himself

Mary: N…n…no! That was all we did, and we had perfectly good reasons to do those things!
Mary: You don’t have proof we did anything else!
P.I. Zzander: QUIT LYING, CRIMINAL
P.I. Zzander: How could you fail to admit the most OBVIOUS crime laying right there in front of my face!?


Oh Loom, this is it… Mary braces for the impact Zzander’s accusation

P.I. Zzander: You helped a criminal escape their prison!
Mary: huh?! Wha?
P.I. Zzander: After getting a close look at this individual, it’s no doubt that this is Geraldo Le Booshki, criminal of attempted murderer through pizza allergic related crimes
P.I. Zzander: which means you helped him escape from his prison dimension!
Mary: Uhhh, HEY, our world isn’t a prison! I mean, sure we’ve got dangerous PAPERLINGS, and beings know as FELT
Mary: But most people are peaceful there!
P.I. Zzander: heh, Don’t get me wrong, lil la… guy.
P.I. Zzander: Your world may be peaceful
P.I. Zzander: But our studies show you guys are primitive, with no magic or technology that allows you to travel across dimensions
P.I. Zzander: We just send prisoners we don’t want to universes that had not yet had means of dimensional travel so they can’t come back.
Mary: That's morally questionable…
P.I. Zzander: Hey, better than risking them doing serious crimes here again, overpopulation of prisons, or the death penalty.
P.I. Zzander: How did you help him escape anyway?!
Mary: umm rare powerful magic that only a select few are allowed to have, but that’s besides the point!
Mary: You sent terrible people to peaceful worlds to deal with?!


Jerry glares at Mary

Mary:… OH! And people who are falsely accused like Jerry?!
P.I. Zzander: Hey, look, I don’t make the laws, I just enforce them!
P.I. Zzander: Now you and Geraldo hold still while I confiscate and inspect your items!
P.I. Zzander: starting with the pizza box! I suspect you’re hiding something illicit again, aren’t you?


Mary is sweating now (not sweaty kitty’s level of sweat, but sweat nonetheless) but Jerry smirks at what Is about to unfold. As P.I. Zzander picks up the pizza box, Jerry pulls out his STALE LEFTOVERS, and a golden light shines from his irises behind his shades as the leftovers dissolve in his hands to nothingness. Excellent, now all Jerry has to do is wait for P.I. Zzander to open the box aaaaand

Antonio: Hey, bud…
P.I. Zzander: AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHH!!!


Antonio pops out of the pizza box as the steam of the pizza makes him visible to everyone in their line of sight
Antonio rubs the side of his face with his weird elephant hand in disappointment

Antonio: *siiiiigh* Figures I wouldn’t get to slowly progress the fear from 1-10 as he takes it up to 11 in an instant.
Antonio: Thought I would have fun with this for once.
Antonio: So boring. *sigh* Come on Zzander, we’ve done this many times before, how can you not expect me after all this time?
P.I. Zzander: W-W-W-WHAT DO YOU WANT FROM ME EVIL SPIRIT?!
Antonio: *sigh* ah well, seeing him like this is still funny, if disappointing
Antonio: Listen, just leave Jerry alone
Antonio: or you’ll anger me, the spirit of pizza or whatever
Antonio: and suffer my curse or something…
Antonio: Yadda yadda, all that jazz.
P.I. Zzander: Y-Y-Y-Yes! I’ll let him off with a warning!
P.I. Zzander: Nothing in the law says we can’t arrest people who escape their prison dimension after all…


Antonio turns over to Jerry with an eye roll

Antonio: Yeah, sure. Anything else you want to add before I hide out within you or something, Jerry?

Jerry couldn’t quite catch any of what Antonio said as he is stuck in his sugar coma, but Mary speaks out

Mary: Please ask about Purr Feckt!
Mary: I need her help to get home.
Mary: And I want to know where she is and how to give a good first impression…
Mary: And get your advice to stay on her good side.
P.I. Zzander: Yes! Yes! I’ll do anything! Just please don’t hurt me!
P.I. Zzander: As a detective who works closely with Purr Feckts cases, I know plenty about her,
P.I. Zzander: She’s planning on visiting the MARINATION UNIVERSITY to see her sister Dea
P.I. Zzander: To congratulate her ending the school year
P.I. Zzander: should be there all day if I remember…
Mary: Which address?
P.I. Zzander: No idea!
P.I. Zzander: Also be on your best behavior when talking to her, use please and thank yous


Ugh, Jerry doesn’t like that idea, after what she did to him, he feels she doesn’t deserve his kindness.

P.I. Zzander: Also, she likes flowers, so you might want to give her one

Jerry imagines giving Gerbera away to Purr Feckt, but that thought process is cut off by Mary

Mary: HEY! Don’t even think about it, boss!
Antonio: Are we done yet?


Jerry gives Antonio a thumbs up.

Antonio: Right, then bug off, detective, and try to at least act more courageous next time.
Antonio: I was really disappointed by not seeing you squirm more.
P.I. Zzander: Ye… Yes sir!


Zzander closes the box before handing it back to Jerry, which causes Antonio to sink rapidly into the pizza box, with the lid of the box slamming against his head on his way in.

Antonio: Ow…

P.I. Zzander walks back to his car

P.I. Zzander: R… right. *ahem* Time for I, the GREAT P.I. ZZANDER to continue the investigation on the CASE OF THE MISSING VALUABLE AND DURABLE DIAMOND SEASHELL
Mary: umm… actual- UGH!


Jerry quickly grabs Mary and stores him into the HAMMER SPACE to shut him up. P.I. Zzander raises an eyebrow before shrugging and entering his car, driving away. Jerry then drops Mary back into his dimension as soon as the detective’s car is out of sight.

Mary:...
Mary:..
Mary: DON’T EVER DO THAT AGAAAAAAAAIN!!!

Jerry is glad Mary and Antonio were able to take care of all that as he got to rest off his SUGAR COMA. He’s still feeling a bit woozy, but he’ll feel better by the next UPDATE

Speaking of which, it looks like the PIZZA PARTY has reached the FIRST CHECKPOINT, which is a parking building! Jerry doesn’t have his moped to park and recharge it, but Gerbera should be here by the end of UPDATE 9 to catch up with Jerry, unless Jerry decides to leave early.

At checkpoints, there are NO SITUATIONS, the only thing that will make the UPDATE counter go up by 1 is by doing three ACTIONS at the checkpoint. BE ADVISED: Jerry needs to charge up his moped at the parking garage while he is out doing the Pizza delivery, so he’ll have to put away 10 ₵A$H recharge it (unless Jerry decides to leave early in UPDATE 9, then it’s Gerbera’s problem and he’ll keep his 30 ₵A$H) Some ACTIONS let you do multiple things within that ACTION. Here are some things you can do:

>BANK (can do multiple things)
- Lets Jerry withdraw or deposit ₵A$H
-Gerbera can do this too, but the amount they’ll pull out can’t be controlled. They refuse to tell you how much they have.
-Jerry has 5000 ₵A$H in the bank (he’d have more, but he keeps having to spend them on new items for his deliveries.
-attempt to rob it (Jerry is not DESPERATE enough to do this)
-store an item (you'll be able to pick up any items stored here in another bank at the SECOND CHECKPOINT later)

>Go to the store!
- It’s recommended you stop at the BANK first to make a withdrawal.
- Jerry has 30 ₵A$H in pocket (which will be 20 ₵A$H once the MOPED gets here by the end of the UPDATE if Jerry doesn’t buy anything that decreases it to below 10. Otherwise Gerbera will pay for moped charging, and they won’t like that one bit. Gerbera has 50 ₵A$H, but they’re not here yet)
- They don’t allow you to buy stuff with your bank card for some reason. System must be broken probably. So go to the bank first.
-You can buy and sell LEGAL items here
- I have a couple of items listed, but I’m going to leave the rest to you guys to come up with items! Please state what item you want there to be, and I’ll in a future post list them before the next update for you all to vote on with a price for each depending on the item’s effectiveness.
- If Gerbera is here, they’ll buy and sell items here too, but you don’t have control over what they buy or sell. You can try to convince them to buy or sell certain things, or save ₵A$H tho.
- Jerry’s HAMMERSPACIAL DIMENSION has room for 2 MORE ITEMS (unless you put the CARDBOARD PIZZA back in the HAMMERSPACE, then it’s 1. Consider throwing or selling items
-Don’t worry, there will be another shop at the SECOND CHECKPOINT with similar items

BUY
- LUMBER AND TREE SEEDS = NAME YOUR PRICE! THE HIGHER, THE BETTER! (this will make Mary’s mood and friendship with Jerry SKYROCKET depending on how much Jerry buys, and will affect the ending depending on if you manage to find a way to get Mary back home. This won’t be in your inventory, Jerry will just have it shipped to the :pizzid: Pizzeria.)

- BANANAS = 1 ₵A$H (can use the banana peel to make someone trip!) (give this to the customer to finish the sidequest: find some bananas for Ramona/Rachael)

- IMPORTED SPRING WATER BOTTLE = 500 ₵A$H (Expensive because it’s imported from a rare hot summers, which is better than a hot springs! can be used to hydrate) (can replace the SWEATY WATER BOTTLE from the purse to decrease the percentage of Purr Feckt’s detection that Jerry used it by 5% bringing it down to 10%) (Expensive because it’s imported)

- Vinegar's hairpin = 10 ₵A$H (from the popular graphic novel, NOISE! It gives whoever wears it a weirdly comprehensive knowledge of chemistry)

- Conway's thong = 15 ₵A$H (Merch from the popular graphic novel, NOISE! It makes you feel way happier with yourself but also makes you wanna wear minimal clothing

- Polaroid Camera = 19 ₵A$H (Somebody put a way-too-bright bulb in the flash, and now it's effectively a tool for blinding people alongside it's more common use of taking photos. )

- Goofy String = 20 ₵A$H (It can be a belt, a rope, a bracelet, a bundle of rubber bands and more! Comes in COLORFUL and EVEN MORE COLORFUL styles. You can also eat it! It tastes like liquor flavored licorice! It comes in a can with 3 uses)

- Airbag = 60 ₵A$H (Car not attached.)

- A Lot of Sheep = 100 ₵A$H (You can't seem to count how many are in here without falling asleep…)

- Screwdriver = 8 ₵A$H (has a changeable tip. Phillips head AND Flat head all in one.)

Rice = 5 ₵A$H (Good for drying out your phone. (Sweaty Kitty would probably like this)
- Your item here (price depends on what your item might be)

Duct Tape = 100 ₵A$H(Arguably the most overpowered item on this list. Can fix EVERYTHING!)

DUCT TAPE GNNUY = 300 ₵A$H It's a gun with little bnnuy ears at the end. it shoots a retractable roll of duct tape that you can use to pull yourself, but requires duct tape to reload after a few uses or the adhesive will wear off. Acts like a grappling hook, or a tape gun with a child friendly shape so it's not censored in over 17 countries! Kids love it, parents hate it!



SELL
- PIZZA BOMB = (Seen as a weapon, can’t be sold here)

- PURR FECKT’S PURSE = select a value between 1-500 ₵A$H for the items Jerry will sell from inside the purse. (The more ₵A$H you want, the emptier the PURSE will be and the higher the percentage Purr Feckt will find out you used the purse increases, and the more you’ll stress Mary out)
Entire Purse is 1000 ₵A$H, (Mary will cry if you sell the entire purse, and you won’t use the purse to effect the percentage on how Purr Feckt will help Mary one way or another)

-TASTY DECOY CARDBOARD PIZZA = 50 ₵A$H

- VALUABLE AND DURABLE DIAMOND SEASHELL = (can’t be sold here)

>Got to the BLACK MARKET
- It’s recommended you stop at the BANK first to make a withdrawal.
- Jerry has 30 ₵A$H in pocket (which will be 20 once the MOPED gets here by the end of the UPDATE if Jerry doesn’t buy anything that decreases it to below 10. Otherwise Gerbera will pay for moped charging, and they won’t like that one bit. Gerbera has 50 ₵A$H, but they’re not here)
- They don’t allow you to buy stuff with your bank card for some reason. They probably don’t want any investigators to track this place through someone’s bank history.
-you can buy and sell ILLEGAL items here
- I have some items listed, but I’m going to leave the rest to you for guys to come up with items! Please state what item you want there to be, and I’ll in a future post list them before the next update for you all to vote on with a price for each depending on the item’s effectiveness.

- ILLEGAL POWDERED DONUT #5 = 1000 ₵A$H (The sugar content is actually illegal in 17 different countries and consuming it will, for the briefest of moments, give you lightning reflexes! but after about [1 Update] you will suffer from an extreme crash of euphoria and a sugar coma.
- ANGERY RUBBER DUCKY = 1200 ₵A$H (Its squeaks taunt your target, making them angry enough to focus on attacking the person who is squeaking at them. Jerry thinks he can trick Gerbera into using it in a situation to make a getaway)

- WEED = 500 ₵A$H (technically not illegal anymore, but they still sell it to make it feel like the good ol’ days when it was illegal)

- MIND CONTROL DEVICE = 750,000 ₵A$H (this will let you mind control your target. And makes the rest of the quest too easy.)

- CLOTHING DESTRUCTION RAY GUN = 1500 ₵A$H (Destroys the clothing of an individual)

Special Monocle = 2,300 ₵A$H (Has a number of properties such as X-Ray vision and true sight. Only has a limited number of charges however, and may cause meta slowdown by forcing the artist to animate the x-ray effect. Jerry thinks this might be more fitting for a tailor than a pizza delivery guy for some reason.)

A Lyluk brand SLUSHEE = 2 ₵A$H (A slushee of dubious origin that when drunk improves some of your stats for a few updates. Pizza flavored. (Gives Jerry +2 points for HELP in a SITUATION.)

>Inventory

Jerry’s Hammerspace (he can only fit 5 items)

PIZZA BOMB - A high explosive that looks, smells and weighs identical to your normal delivery box. You throw (probably) this and not the actual pizza at someone to distract them with an explosive cheesy saucy surprise.

PURR FECKT’S PURSE (15% chance Purr will notice Jerry used it) - Jerry didn't steal this, he just hasn’t had the chance to return it to her yet after she left it at the courthouse. He’s serious! Contains her wallet, important evidence for another trial (hopefully one in the far future, Jerry would hate to have to deal with her today if she comes to get this), feminine products, keys (how did she get home without her car or house keys?), a pair of handcuffs. Water bottle full of sweat, And pretty much anything else you want. Jerry would’ve guessed she has them because she's a prosecutor, but the fuzzy pink design screams "Personal Use". The more Jerry uses this, the higher the chance Purr Feckt will find out it’s been used. Currently at 15% chance she’ll find out.

VALUABLE AND DURABLE DIAMOND SEASHELL - Sell it at a black market to make a LOT of ₵A$H (Jerry thinks there is one at both CHECKPOINTS. Though the second CHECKPOINT will most likely give more money for it) using it will decrease its value though. Jerry can return it to the MUSHEUM for something good to happen as long as you don’t use it until then (near the second checkpoint)! Jerry can use it to hide in for stealth, or to protect himselfself from attacks very easily (but it’s value will go down) Jerry isn’t giving it to P.I. Zzander, he’s an asshole who will take all the credit. But he can probably give it to Purr feckt to help negotiate in helping Mary.

Jerry’s inventory out of the hammerspace

TASTY DECOY CARDBOARD PIZZA - It is a cardboard pizza that you put over your ordinary pizza. It's made of 100% organic cardboard, not that it matters. Strangely enough the first bite ALWAYS tastes and FEELS like pizza, but contains no nutritional value. Every bite after that tastes like cardboard, but this would prove useful if you're fighting off a swarm of pizza lovers. WARNING: 20% Jerry will drop it as it is on top of the customer’s pizza box.

WALLET - (contains his bank card, drivers license, insurance card, 30 ₵A$H) in pocket

JERRY’S SMART PHONE – Contains phone number to the :pizzid: pizzeria, his uncle’s, and the Sweaty Kitty’s. W2K and Gerbera are blocked. In pocket.

NOTEBOOK PAPER - has Ramona's (Rachael's) name, location, phone number, order, and price. In pocket

LIGHTER – lights things up. In pocket

CIGARETTES - take a smoke. In pocket

Gerbera’s Hammerspace (they can only fit 5 items)

GERBERA DOLL - Just a toy of themself that they got from the secret santa event. Has a pullstring that talks about how great they are, and even sings!

RADIO - Gerbera uses this mainly to dance in they’re costume. One more use before it is out of batteries

THE ZA COSTUME - Dress up as :pizzid:’s mascot!

MACE - Got it from working a second job as a royal guard in another quest. Good for bonking, hitting home runs, and may cause clothing damage for some reason. Gerbera would rather only use it if their life is in danger and will otherwise take a really good reason to attack someone with it to protect the pizza.

A picture of SNOWPEA - It depicts a female bee. Gerbera takes this wherever they go, feeling that a little bit of her is with them cheering them on.

Gerbera’s inventory out of the hammerspace

WALLET - (contains their bank card, drivers license, insurance card, 50 ₵A$H, their business card) in pocket

KEYS - to their home, in pocket

SMART PHONE (BROKEN) - contains Snow pea’s home number, Jerry’s Smartphone number, Snowpea’s Smartphone number, :pizzid: pizzeria, Snowpea’s work phone, Snowpea’s parents phone number. In pocket.

MEANWHILE during the GIRLS NIGHT OUT WITH A PUMPKIN event,

Rachael stands staring in front of the mirror with nothing but her robe, the only article of clothing protecting her dignity. She has a lot of thoughts running through her head, thinking about how she cannot believe she is actually going to go through with this dare and has been trying to process it for the past 8 updates now. Is she really doing this to protect her secret shrine to an obsession in Stephan Stuffle for a humiliating dare? Is that really a secret more important to keep than her modesty? What if the others think she’s an idiot for doing this? What if her body doesn’t look good enough? What if people think she’s a pervert, especially the pizza courier? and why is she trembling… with excitement of the thought of performing this dare?

Rachael gets startled from her thought process as there is a knock on the door.

Kaia: Rachael? Is everything okay?
Rachael: WHAT?! UHH, YEAH, EVERYTHING’S FINE, JUST TOTALLY EMBARRASSED ABOUT THE WHOLE THING AND TOTALLY NOT EXCITED OR ANYTHING.
Jackie: hmmmmmm…heehee
Kaia: Are you sure everything is alright Rachael? You can still back out if you want and nobody will judge you.
Rachael: F… Fine, I’m okay! I want to prove that I’m brave enough for this party
Charisse: Then come out already!


Rachael’s heart beats a little harder. Sure, it was normal to walk around with nothing but a bathrobe on, but with the idea that she’s wearing it only to discard it some updates after just makes her feel vulnerable… and yet it is giving her a kind of thrill she hadn’t felt before.

Rachael: N… Not yet!
Kaia: You don’t have to prove yourself, Rachael, you’re still good enough for this party if you don’t want to do something uncomfortable
Kaia: Look, I know we made the dare already, but I was talking with Charisse earlier for her approval, and we wanted to know if you wanted to alter the deal a little?
Charisse: Yeah, what if you wanted to instead of answering the door for pizza naked, giving you a break and letting you wear some articles of clothings?
Charisse: make things easier on you.
Jackie: what?! Come onnnnnnnn! She’s gotta at least tell her a little bit of her secret then
Kaia: Jackie, you know how shy Rachael is, don’t push things
Kaia: also, while you were in here for awhile, we continued the game and it resulted in you getting to pull a truth or dare on Charisse
Kaia: so, if you wanted, you can take revenge and give her a truth or dare right now.
Charisse: Bring it on! Do your worst, Rachael! I’ll show you how this game is played and do your dare or spill my secrets after your turn is done!
Kaia: Charisse, please don’t push her.


Rachael is lost in her thoughts again. Now she has options on how undressed she wants to be! That should calm her down a bit for the dare… but… this thrill she’s feeling… does she want to experience more of it by going completely nude?
And what kind of truth or dare should Charrise get from her? She did put her in a potentially humiliating position… but… is that really all bad?

Rachael looks at the pile of clothes and starts to think

>HOW NAKED SHOULD RACHAEL GET FOR THE PIZZA DELIVERY?
Please decide what she will and will not wear from the following clothes listed. You can also just say “strip everything but” or just say “strip everything off”

Glasses
Pink Shirt
Yellow bracelet
Blue Sweatpants
Pink striped bra
Pink striped Panties
Pink Shoes
Pink socks

>Also, please write what should Rachael dare Charisse to do, or what truth does Rachael want to learn about Charisse?

>we’ll be going back to Jerry immediately in the next update, so also please list some actions, and items you want the shop and black market to have at the FIRST CHECKPOINT.

MESSAGE FROM PEA: Whew, that is a LOT OF FREAKING STUFF TO DO! But don’t worry, to make things simpler, I made a checklist for you guys to suggest in:

-choose three actions Jerry can do
- (optional) come up with an item for the BLACK MARKET
- How undressed should Rachael be?
- What dare should Charrise do?
- Should you return the cardboard pizza in its hammerspace, or leave it out?
- (optional) item management, throw items away for more space!

Also a sidenote, I try not to be biased, but being the PLUSH QUEST fan that I am, I’m going to shamelessly ask to please consider buying lumber for Mary, thanky!

Okay fuck that's a lot.

Let's start that checklist with the simpler options, and move onto the more involved ones later.

> Should you return the cardboard pizza in its hammerspace, or leave it out?

Put it away for now, and then take it back out if you need to make room. You probably will, don't be surprised when it's right back there sitting on the pizza box at the end of this break.

> How undressed should Rachael be?

Alright, this one is simple. Glasses only. Rachael is starting to feel excited, don't take this away from her. This could be a fundamental taste of exhibitionism that teaches her about herself and helps her grow more confident down the line. But leave her glasses on so that she can actually see. It'd be extra embarrassing if she couldn't even see the person seeing all of her. The Yellow bracelet and Pink socks would also be acceptable, since they don't really cover anything but she may feel better wearing them than not.

> What dare should Charisse do?

There are basically two main categories we can take here: Lewd for lewd, or Unpleasant. Lewd for lewd is "You dared me to do something inappropriate, so I'll dare you to do something similar", while unpleasant is basically a normal dare of something you generally wouldn't do without being forced.

If we want to go lewd, return the favor. Since Rachael has to strip for the pizza guy, dare Charisse to stay nude until the pizza arrives. She won't have to be seen nude by a stranger, but she gets an extended period of exposure among her friends. I'd say that such a dare is at the perfect level of explicitness for this quest, since like Pam before everything could just be censored with convenient camera angles.

On the unpleasant side, I'm just gonna defer to something I asked Tippler to draw in the past. Dare Charisse to take a great big bite of the pizza when it arrives, thus causing the fruit punch core to explode all over her. The biggest point against this specific dare is that there is a non-zero chance that this happens regardless of making it a dare. People get hungry, pizza arrives, dig right in, KA-BLAM!

If I have to vote for one over the other, I'll go for the nudity dare on the grounds that it evens the score between Charisse and Rachael. Plus it'll be funny to see how many ways Polt can conveniently censor Charisse in future interludes with the college party.

You could also pick truth, but damn. You'd better have a damn fine question if you want to ask it over any dare.

> Choose three actions Jerry can do

-Black Market
-Chill with Vincent and Harmon
-Store


Alright, let's go through these one at a time, shall we?

> Black Market

Sell the shell. It's literally worth a million ₵A$H, and it saves us from having to stop at the bank and deposit Jerry's life savings into junk we're going to use up on this one delivery. Plus, if we go to the bank, that's either an extra update at the checkpoint or cutting out one of these stops. Just sell the shell, it's not like YOU stole it. The museum will be fine without it. And if you REALLY need it back, you can either make the big bucks and buy it back next checkpoint, or plan a heist to get it back. These will take time, but I'd say you come out ahead will all the time your new items will get you.

Here's my pitch on how we spend our loads of money:

-SPECIAL MONOCLE: Have Jerry put it on under his shades. No need to waste an inventory slot when you can just equip it. Will give Jerry plenty more information to use against whatever SITUATIONS come up in the future.

-FORTUNE TELLER HOTLINE: Another contender in the "No space taken" club, since you'd presumably either write the number on your notepad or put it straight into your cellphone. Probably both, given the example you just witnesses with Gerbera losing Snowpea's number earlier.

-CLOTHING DESTRUCTION RAY GUN: Yes, this is a lewd option, but it's Polt's fault for adding it. I am but an innocent yet horny man. Plus, it can just be a good quick conversation ender. "Yes, very interesting, except L + ratio + you're naked". Gerbera will probably appreciate defeat via clothing damage, given their time with Chinzebeth.

-ILLEGAL POWDERED DONUT #2: NO WE ARE NOT ADDICTED, WE ARE OFFENDED THAT YOU WOULD ASSUME WE ARE, BUT ALSO STOP TRYING TO MAKE US NOT BUY THE TANTALIZING SUGARY DONUT.

-WEED: This is just to convince Vincent, speaking of which...

> Vincent and Harmon

Give Vincent Weed, instant on our side.

As for Harmon, offer the Cardboard pizza as tribute to try and win him over. Your odds will still be 2/5 due to Gerbera, but it's better than 1/5.

> Store

Well, let's start with the obvious.

-LUMBER AND TREE SEEDS: Since, in my hypothetical scenario, we're still waving around shell money, let's go high. 2000 ₵A$H worth of the stuff, all super HQ shit.

-VINEGAR'S HAIRPIN: Would look adorable on Mary!

-CONWAY'S THONG: Would look disturbing on Mary, but make him wear them anyways! They'll make him happier, and this poor poodle needs all the joy he can get.

-BANANAS: Customer satisfaction is important!

In summary:

Jerry's Hammerspace:
-Purr Feckt's Purse
-Bananas
-Pizza Bomb
-Clothing Destruction Gun
-Illegal Powdered Donut #2

Jerry's Person:
-Special Monocle (Equipped)
-Fortune Teller Hotline (Written on Notepad)

>Bank
First off, bank the seashell in a safe deposit box. Pay a fee to have it appraised and insured; even if it gets stolen, you'll be swimming in cash. Also, give the bank permission to automatically sell it if someone offers four times its market value. If anyone asks, just say your uncle is going through his third divorce and you're more capable of handling this shard of wealth than his raging ass right now.
Also, stuff Purr Feckt's purse in your safe deposit box. She'll think you were being responsible if you leave it somewhere private and protected.
Withdraw $510.

>Black Market
Hire Dyon (3 Months) - $20,000/month
Dyon is a slime girl with the unique ability to copy and paste superpowers. Sometimes. Dyon can copy a power if she maintains contact for approximately thirty seconds; most powers will be removed from her menu after three months. Her paste therapy takes one month on average (give or take two weeks) and has a success rate of 100% for D-class powers, 50% for C-class powers, 30% for B-class powers, 10% for A-Class powers, and 5% for S-class powers.
Dyon has permanently copied the [Electrokinesis], [Lesser Transmutation], and [Dreamstuff Pymary] abilities for herself and can use them at will.
Dyon is a horrible employee. She demands payment up front, is brash and abrasive, almost never follows orders, and will bail the moment she can interpret a technicality in her contract. But if you can take the time to earn her loyalty, she'll renew her contract for peanuts and may even increase her copying success rate.
Voretex - $250,000
Every vore fetishist wants one of these. This cyber-psionic augmentation creates a user-friendly portal to a pocket dimension in their orifice, which connects to a giant bio-module attuned to the user's DNA. Long story short, anything that gets eaten will fit. Banned in all civilized eating contests. Rumors of the ability to vacuum objects are considered silly.
A Kodama Doll Dressed Like a Shoujo Magical Girl - $5
You're not sure why this is at the black market - is that the shriek of an angry harpy in the distance? The vendor insists you buy now or never speak of this again.
Buy Electronic Mail, and ask if anyone on the next checkpoint would be willing to buy a rare seashell.

She'll owe you later.

Out of all the questions that you asked I will only answer one of them. HOW NAKED SHOULD RACHAEL GET FOR THE PIZZA DELIVERY? I think that she should wear one piece of clouting when the pizza arrives and that one of the clouting should be a hot dog costume!

Message from PEA: I probably made a mistake by making that seashell way too valuable at that price making things too easy.
I'm not going to change it, it is a valuable item from a museum after all. But instead, keep in mind that if you're patient and return it in the museum, something good will happen. And there might be consequences for selling it at the black market. Gotta balance things out and give you all a fair warning

Also, there were a few things I'd like to fix in my posts (looking to edit these in later):

-you can store an item in the bank and pick it up at the second checkpoint in the next bank

-hottest hot sauce is worth 600 ₵A$H

-selling the waterbottle full of sweat will raise the percentage Purr Feckt will notice Jerry used the purse by 10%, making it 25%

Message from PEA: Hmm... For all intents and purposes, I'll say his job is worth enough to make decent living, (plus he's living with his uncle currently) though he is looking for an acting job.

Tbh, I dont want Jerry's income from his job to be all that important for this silly quest thats not meant to be taken too seriously

So theres no need to worry about that in this quest. Go nuts.

> RACHAEL'S DRESS
She should wear GLASSES, SOCKS/SHOES, BRACELET, and the ROBE.

Why? Glasses to see, Socks and shoes because she'll be walking on the ground, and knowing this quest get into a SITUATION. Bracelet because its an accessory, and the robe so she can do an EPIC REVEAL.

I'm also down for the above but no Robe, having her try to show CONFIDENCE whilst being a very bright red enf bnnuy.

> CHARRISE DARE
For a SABOTAGE dare, we dare Charisse to go find the pizza guy and take a bite out of the pizza for an epic prank! He won't know what hit em! You'll be sure to bring him an extra tip for the trouble.

For a HELP dare I suggest we dare Charisse to not only strip naked for when the pizza guy comes, but to act as Rachael's bra (holding her boobs like she's royalty). It'll be 3x as embarrassing and we can have Charisse say it as a joke but Rachael be like, you know what, YES, DO THAT, and Charisse act real embarrassed in shock.

> WHAT DO WITH CARDBOARD PIZZA
Feed Mary! Mary's a plush and eats paper and cardboard is just tough paper, the pizza was made for mary. Also give some to your friends to increase their odds that they help you! Just one slice though, claiming Mary needs the rest because he's been a good boi.

I'd rather use it now then drop it later and just lose it.

> JERRY ACTIONS

[CURRENT BALANCE = 30 CA$H]

> SELL THINGS AT THE BLACK MARKET
- SELL SWEATY KITTY'S WATER BOTTLE OF SWEAT (+1000 CA$H)
On the one hand, I'm sad to see this go, on the other hand, Jerry himself found it gross and doesn't like it. Sweaty Kitty's a businesswoman, she'd probably be honored to know it costs so much, right?
- In fact, text her, ask how she feels about knowing that? She gave it to you for a prank and to help you out, but if she found out that she could sell her sweat it might be a lucrative business venture for her to pursue, she does sweat a lot after all. Imagine, sweaty kitty sweat stocking the shelves of stores and gamers lining up to buy it at top prices. A glorious day, at least thats what she thinks, Jerry is grossed out by the idea but loves money.
- Don't increase the sussy meter yet, I have a plan for that later!
- SELL THE PIZZA BOMB (+5000 CA$H)
It's tough to let this one go, you made it with your bare hands, but you need the CA$H and inventory space. Plus, if PIZZANDER investigates your inventory and found a bomb, what would he think?!?!? He'd call you a terrorist. AGAIN.
- DO NOT SELL THE SHELL
I don't want bad things to happen and I imagine there will be a reward for returning something worth MILLIONS to the museum. Also, how will you explain this on your taxes? You won't. Don't fall for this easy trap.

> BUY THINGS AT THE BLACK MARKET
Honestly there's a lot of good stuff but instead of picking things because I've already put a lot on your plate.

I'll just say I support getting anything within a budget of [4000 CA$H] along with this one specific Item I want to get, but not for us.

- PREPAID INTERDIMENSIONAL WRISTPHONE [1000 CA$H]
Cell service that can cross dimensions, time is a bit wonky though, so some service exceptions may occur. But if you upgrade the service plan for an extra 2000 CA$H it CAN be reliable! Too bad you don't want to spend the extra cash. At least while you're here it works perfectly.
We're getting a little wristwatch phone for Mary so he can communicate with you if he goes back! Also so he can do stuff while he's still here in case it all goes tits up.

For the rest of my plans you need the [1030 CA$H] and I want a small buffer of a few cash, but likely that won't happen.

Frequently has pallets of wood, piles of sawdust, and firewood that will get disposed of due to imperfections in the city state guidelines. Perfect for Mary's purposes, allowing him to have agency in the type and amount of wood he gets as well as putting his campaigning skills to use as he plans his grand design and it isn't left up to you (requires a little bit of Jerry's help, but is well worth it as they could get in larger amounts!) (Mary will use their new wrist phone! And text Sweaty Kitty too, or anyone else, Mary has his own life!)
- 100 Evergreen Spruce tree seeds (approx 20 CA$H)
Grows around 2-3 feet a year, thicker and tougher, but has a lot of NEEDLES, which are incredibly important in plush society. Can grow 5 feet a year in good weather. This is a slower option than the Poplar saplings and allows for some variety.
- A few mixed bags of seeds (Approx 5 CA$H)
You got a discount on them, which contain sunflower seeds, vines, tomatoes, potatoes, and other various random seeds, you won't know what comes out of it. Good for testing soil density in the area and checking for nutrients.
= TOTAL COST FOR MARY GOODS = [55 CA$H]
[CURRENT BALANCE - 975 CA$H]

> BUY OTHER STUFF
You've got 2 empty spaces if you let Mary and your pals have the Pizza, (which you should, just have Mary go hang out with them while you do shopping, he deserves a food break!)
- Duct Tape Gnnuy (300 CA$H)
Did you read the description for duct tape?!?!? This is Duct tape but on steroids! And you can pop the tape out and use it normally! And it's Bnnuy shaped!!!
- Duct Tape (100 CA$H)
So you can load the gnnuy, ignore if it comes with ammo
- Rice (5 CA$H)
Get a big ol bag of rice and pour a bit out to fit in the next item
- BANANAS (10 CA$H)
If it's 1 CA$H per banana, get 10 of em just so you can have a snack now with your buds (eating like 5 of them since Mary can eat it since it's SWEET, one for your two buds, one for you, and one for gerb). Store the remaining 5 in the rice bag and in your hammerspace. If you see sweaty kitty you can give her the rice and keep the bananas, so it's two quest items in one! (yeah there's a little less rice in the bag but times are hard, she'll understand)
- IMPORTED SPRING WATER (500 CA$H)
You might think this is a waste, but it will reduce the sussy meter!
(Thank you for waiting to change the sussy value)

Now you've (likely) got a full inventory
= TOTAL COST FOR OTHER STUFF = [915 CA$H]
[CURRENT BALANCE = 60 CA$H]
[CURRENT FREE INVENTORY SLOTS = 0]

> UPKEEP WHEN GERBERA ARRIVES
Give Gerb 50 CA$H to help fix their phone, it's really not your fault that it happened, it's Sweaty Kitty's! And they likely have funds to pay the rest, honestly they should be happy you're going even this far and will likely think of you better than if you just paid for the whole thing since they know you're not altruistic but can tell that you feel a little bad about it.

Don't pay for the dented moped, a dent is a dent, Gerb can go to the repair store themselves so you dont have to waste an action.

Also, pay for Moped Charging
= TOTAL COST FOR REPAIRS/UPKEEP [60 CA$H]
[CURRENT BALANCE = 0 CA$H]

I'd really like for us to have some leftover CA$H, but I imagine whatever we buy at the black market will tap us out

> 3. Other Action
- Go hang with your friends or something, I'd suggest do the most suggested other action. Text Sweaty kitty, find out what's happening, give mary the wristwatch phone!

HOWEVER

If we do not get 3 actions next update at the rest stop since we have to deal with gerb things, I want my action to be go to the bank to store the Rice/Bananas so you can withdraw them at rest stop 3. So that people from team black market can have cool shit in their inventories, this means not hanging with the friends and instead hoping Mary can be cool and help them out. But you also spent like [1060 CA$H] on Mary this update, so he can be cool for you.

Phew okay that was a lot.

No. 1028106 ID: 8483cf

Jumping Jimminies I gotta pull out the word processor for this one

For ACTIONS:

1. FIX: Gerbera’s Smartphone. We gotta call Snowpea to explain that HORRIBLE mis-phrasing ASAP! (Also ask to borrow a plunger to fix the DENT on the moped for free yourself. It’ll buff out.)
2. Go to the BLACK MARKET
3. Go to the STORE
4. Text Rocio

ROCIO
Somehow, Rocio has bossed your phone into receiving texts from her, despite not knowing her number. Maybe it’s magic? Regardless, she’s telling you that she expects to see you working hard at your next workout, and if you don’t try hard enough, she’ll know.

BLACK MARKET
1. Sell the PIZZA BOMB to get cash. Bombs are bad mmkay
2. DO NOT SELL THE SHELL. It belongs in a museum!
3. I am ambivalent on the special monocle. I’m leaning toward not needing the x-ray effect; it’s a tailor’s tool!
4. BUY ANOTHER DONUT YESSSS
5. Buy the ray gun, it’s our nuclear option if used correctly. All fear the lewds! Give it to Gerb, they’re trained to use it. Somehow.


STORE
1. Buy the Polaroid Camera. It’s a flashbang, and it’s useful for proving our innocence if P.I. Zzander wants to lock us up. Also it’ll definitely be fun at the very end of the delivery!
2. Buy Lumber and tree seeds for Mary. He deserves it.

Cardboard Pizza
Leave it on top of the box. Jerry’s a pizza guy, he’s got practice balancing.

NUDITY
Keep the glasses, yellow bracelet, and Pink Striped Panties. Wear a robe for now. If Rachael feels bold, she can lose the panties later in case she gets into a SITUATION. A pair of panties in hand is worth two in the bush!

DARE
Charisse has to go topless for the whole evening. It’s only fair!

Message From PEA: Since I gave you all so many different options for actions Jerry can do, and so many items to pick from, I figure different people would want to do different things and go a certain direction based off their three actions, items, and budgets planned. So I decided to instead of going for the most popular actions, items, and amount of CASH to budget, I'm going to have you guys pick which suggesters' plan of actions you all want to go with.

IMPORTANT PLZ READ: When voting your favorite plan of actions, Please ONLY PICK TWO off the list. No more, no less. I will assume most would want to pick their own plan of actions from what they suggested, so by having you all pick two, we can get a better idea on which would be the most popular vote

I did my best to make things as accurate as possible with what the suggestors wanted in their ideas, and the calculations. If I made a mistake, plz let me know and I'll fix them up. Thank you!

During the time Charisse, Kaia, and Jackie were all talking to her, Rachael has been staring at the pile of her clothing laid out on the bathroom floor, pondering the offer to be able to keep some articles of clothing on. She had already made up her mind to go forward with the dare to prove how courageous she was to the other girls and a pumpkin to fit in, but she honestly appreciates everyone being supportive of her by cutting her some slack with this offer.

But after thinking it over, she decides this dare is something she has to do to actually enjoy her college years while she still can. In the end, she decides to keep the glasses on as she wouldn’t be able to see without them.
Then she puts her lucky bracelet back on, which was something she got from her father many years ago, and had always thought to have given her good luck throughout the years. With the bracelet, she thinks she needs all the luck she can get.
Finally, she puts her socks back on. There was some hesitation at that as she was wondering if wearing footwear would make her nudity stand out more, and if it would make people think she is actually showing off her body on purpose instead of rushing out of the shower thus allowing her to make an excuse for her nudity for the pizza deliverer stating she was rushing out of the shower. But in the end, she figures that she didn’t want her feet to get too cold and catch a cold herself. Yep, definitely that and not because she wanted to make her intentions of doing the dare obvious. NOPE, NOT AT ALL, HAHAHAHAHA! *gulp*

Kaia: Hey Rachael, are you okay? You’ve been silent for a while now… Do you need help?
Charisse: eh, give her some time, she’s like, probably thinking up a sinister truth or dare for me to perform.
Charisse: To which I say, hah! I’m not gonna back outta anything!
Jackie: Exciting!


Oh right! The dare. Rachael wasn’t really paying attention when they told her it was her turn to make a dare as she was thinking about her state of dress. But apparently, now she gets to have revenge on Charisse for having her do this EXHILARATING HUMILIATING DARE. Maybe if she gives Charisse a challenging dare that is humiliating enough, she might be able to get her to reveal a dark secret of her own, like some of her WEIRD DREAMS she was rumored to have in her past that she’s been secretive about...

Thinking over some possible dares, one idea could be having Charisse eat the pizza she ordered since Charisse expressed disgust over it… maybe even have her find the delivery person to take the pizza from and eat it? But then again, that seems like an easy enough dare in comparison to what she is about to do in her own dare, and she doesn’t want to SABOTAGE the pizza delivery person like that.

No, if she was going to have Charisse do a dare, it would have to be something that is at least just as challenging as her’s.
After figuring out a dare, Rachael finally walks out of the bathroom and has a little girl talk with a pumpkin with her friends. Kaia blushed a little after seeing Rachael in Charisse’s bathrobe, but shook her head a little to snap back into her serious demeanor. Jackie meanwhile doesn’t hide her feelings and just stares at Rachael while Charisse just gives Rachael a thumbs up.

Jackie: Wow! so cuuuuuute…
Charisse: Lookin’ good!
Kaia: Uh, I’m proud of your courage, Rachael.


Rachael smiles a bit from the compliments, and feels a bit more confident. But her focus shifts back to what dare she should order Charisse to do, one that could get her to reveal her rumored secret dreams. She takes a deep breath to calm her nerves, and begins her dare pitch.

Rachael: Th… Thanks!
Rachael: I’ve been thinking it over and well…
Rachael: I think if I want to make things even…
Rachael: Maybe I should… umm…
Rachael: Request a dare that is just as bad as mine?
Rachael: So I’ve been thinking I should… ummm… hhmmmm
Kaia: Take it slow, remember, it’s any dare you want
Charisse: Go all out! I can handle it!
Rachael: Well, I was thinking along the ideas that maybe she could…
Jackie: Use her hands as your bra when the pizza arrives!
Rachael: Maybe streak around the dorms or campus until the pizza gets here? Err… staying naked until the pizza arrives?
Charisse: Heard ya loud and clear! Streak naked until the pizza arrives and then afterwards hold your breasts like a bra for the pizza deliverer. Got it!
Charisse: (Whispering) Thankfully it wasn’t to eat that pizza
Rachael: Wait! I meant… uhh...

Whoops! Rachael only meant for Charisse to stay naked until the pizza arrives, but she had accidentally let her mouth move faster than her brain, asking for her to go streaking before saying her real dare, while Jackie had interrupted Rachael asking for Charisse to use her hands as Rachael’s bra in front of the pizza courier. Rachael was about to correct her, but was too shocked to say anything as she witnessed Charisse already stripping. First the shoes and socks, then off with the skirt, and the watermelon top. Rachael is speechless over what she was witnessing. She’s never really seen another woman strip like this in the same room as her.
Rachael is standing there dumbfounded while Jackie is gasping over what is unfolding. Kaia on the other hand is not amused.

Kaia: Aw, Come on Charisse! couldn’t you just back down on that dare?!
Charisse: Hey, I’m only doing what Rachael dared me to! All part of the game!
Kaia: Yeah, but to take it this far?! Besides, Rachael didn’t seem all that serious on that dare! Right Rachael?
Rachael: Ummm, well… That was my dare… but… I was hoping, err… she would back down and pick the truth?
Charisse: HA! Shoulda tried harder than that! See Kaia? Trust your friend more!


Charisse then proceeds to remove the earrings off her ears, along with the hair tie, letting her hair flop down from its ponytail state. Already Charisse was looking like a different person with how little she was wearing. She finally removes her necklace, dropping it to the ground.

Charisse: Yeah, I know the earrings, necklace, and hair tie was unnecessary to remove.
Charisse: But if I’m doing this dare, I’m going ALL OUT! The nakeder, the better!
Charisse: Just don’t touch my shit during my dare, alright?
Charisse: And now, for the moment you ladies, and pumpkin have been waiting for!


Charisse then slowly removes the panties, almost teasingly and lets it slide off her legs. Meanwhile Jackie’s eyes widen with mouth agape at the strip show while Kaia is facepalming in frustration. Rachael is getting too nervous and couldn’t bear to look at this go further, but couldn’t resist peeking a little through her fingers.
Rachael: Wa… WAIT! If you’re going to streak around campus, what if you get caught?!
Rachael: You’ll get suspended from college!
Charisse: Aww, don’t worry! I’ve been to plenty of parties with truth or dare games that had me go streaking around the dorms!
Charisse: I know all the paths and hiding places to take to not get spotted
Charisse: and if someone spots me, who’s gonna believe them? And I’ll just kick em’ if they dare to take pictures!
Charisse: and if any of the campus staff catches me, meh, who cares?
Charisse: I come from a very wealthy family, so they can just bribe the school to prevent my suspension and sweep this under the rug!
Jackie: Woooow, you’re so cool, Charisse
Jackie: You’re making my heart race!
Kaia: Look, just don’t say we were involved with this if you’re caught, alright, Charisse?
Charisse: Hey, that wasn’t part of the dare.
Kaia: CHARISSE!


Charisse just winks and laughs as she undoes her bra, the last article of clothing, and lets it slip off her breasts, finally leaving her completely naked

Charisse: Relaaaax, I was kidding!
Charisse: So, how do I look? Wouldn’t you want a body like mine?
Jackie: AWESOME DARE! Thank you, Rachael!
Rachael: AH! Uh, you’re wel…welcome?
Rachael: You agreeing to the dare, Charisse… wasn’t really what I expected though…
Rachael: But… um, you do look… cute…
Kaia: *sigh* well if Rachael is alright with it…
Charisse: There ya go! Y’know, Kaia, I’m starting to think Rachael is more courageous than you, you’re too uptight, relax already, it’s not like you! hahaha!
Kaia: HEY! I’m just making sure Rachael is comfortable on her first girls’ night out!
Jackie: … with me,
Charisse: Yeah, suuuuure.

Charisse then summons her smart phone from her HAMMERSPACIAL DIMENSION onto her hand, and gives the girls and a pumpkin a playful salute

Charisse: Well, I’m outtie on an adventure
Charisse: I’ll be livestreaming this on my ONLYFAUNUS account as proof so be sure to look me up on my computer over on the desk over there in a few minutes.
Kaia: You’re actually a member there?
Jackie: of course she is! I follow her on there, we can view her livestream on my account!
Charisse: awwww, thanks Jack!
Charisse: Laaaaaaters!


Charisse then starts recording on her phone, and proceeds to hop out of the apartment as kangaroos do. The remaining girls, and pumpkin run out to see Charisse off. Rachael, still in her robe, hides close behind Kaia hoping not to be seen in just the robe as Jackie loudly cheers Charisse on as she hops through the dorm halls. Kaia just sighs.

Kaia: Jackie, shhh! You don’t want to bring attention to us here, do you?!
Jackie: aww, I’m just adding some excitement and being supportive


Rachael stays silent as she sees Charisse disappear into the halls, lost in thought. She can’t believe how bold the kangaroo is to do something so risky like this without a hint of fear. In a way, Rachael is kind of jealous of how chill, yet spunky Charisse is, kind of wishing she can have a fuck-all attitude like her. She wants to have her courage, her confidence, her desire for fun. She realizes that maybe, she is even starting to RESPECT Charisse.

She snaps back out of her thoughts when Kaia grabs her arm

Kaia: Alright, let’s get back in the dorm room already before someone comes out.
Jackie: Right, right! We need to see her livestream and make sure she is flowing the dare.
Jackie: This is so fun!
Kaia: Yeah, good idea. Rachael, you don’t have to watch if you don’t want to.
Rachael:…
Rachael: I…
Rachael: I think I’ll watch too
Kaia: Really? You’re sure, Rachael?
Rachael: I… kind of… I just… I think I want to see Charisse’s bravery in action. It’s umm… inspiring.
Jackie: Yay! Thatta girl!

Kaia is about to say something, but she just nods before they all gather behind the glow of the computer screen, and watch the Kangaroo already making some close calls during her streak as the chat room is cheering her on. Rachael is surprised by how supportive everyone in chat is, none of them demeaning the kangaroo’s actions.

Could this be where Charisse gets her bravery from? From all the support from others? From FRIENDS?

Finally, the CAR OVEN Parking building. A place where Jerry can take a quick break and reassess things before continuing the pizza delivery. Normally he’d have to find a parking space, but that isn’t his SITUATION right now, that is up to Gerbera to deal with when they get here later with the moped.

Jerry already has a plan of action set, and the first thing he does is head into the BLACK MARKET hidden secretly somewhere in the CAR OVEN parking building. It was a secret place Antonio told him about to buy some ILLEGAL items to help with pizza deliveries, and thankfully, Jerry doesn’t have to reveal it to Gerbera since they’re not here yet. It’s also where Jerry met his good friend Harmon.

Jerry heads over to the elevator on the first floor of the building, and presses the button to send it to the top floor. Before the elevator door closes, Jerry gets off of the elevator, letting the elevator go up without him. Once the elevator is gone, he slides open the doors that would usually lead inside the elevator, and rushes to the back of the wall to push a secret door open, leading him to the BLACK MARKET that is usually hidden behind the elevator.

Within is a friendly shopkeeper that Jerry introduces to Mary as “Good Ol’ Grumpy”. First name ‘Good’, middle name ‘Ol’, last name ‘Grumpy’. He is a hooded figure whose entire body is completely hidden in the shadows of his hooded tattered cloak, with two glowing wispy eyes being the only things revealed.

Grumpy: …
Grumpy: *hissss*
Mary: It’s a pleasure to meet you, Mr. Grumpy.
Grumpy: …
Grumpy: *Growls*
Mary: Ummm… My name is Mary, and w-
Grumpy: GWAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH!
Grumpy: *wheeze*
Mary: BORK!
Mary: B… Boss?


Aw, Good Ol Grumpy with his excellent customer service. He has such a way with words. Mary seems to be trembling for some reason, and is a bit confused as to how Jerry is keeping his cool.

After Jerry greets Mr. Grumpy, he had interpreted through his grunts and wheezes, and occasional screams, vague arm flailing, and screeches that he has some new items today, such as a POWER CAPSULE that he got from some woman named Dr. Tina. Said something about how she had to offload some of her supplies quickly, so she could start hiding out, but Grumpy could only afford the one POWER CAPSULE. He’s not sure why she couldn’t just hide out in the city, but he’s sure she has her reason to stay in her own world. The capsule supposably gives someone super powers for a little while, but he’s not exactly sure what.

He also says one of the fortune tellers Is going to be dropping out of the FORTUNATE HOTLINE any UPDATE now, and Jerry should probably pay to have their contact information on his phone before she quits and moves on to greener pastures. Though even if she quits, he’ll still have the other two fortune tellers to contact.

There was also a Lyluk Brand SLUSHEE that he bought for himself, but he hated the flavor and decided to sell it, and that Jerry should buy it soon before it melts.

Lastly, he reminds Jerry he has some JOTUND MIGHT that a mysterious fairy dropped off a long time ago, but it might be reaching its expiration date soonish and should consider buying it while he has the chance… or maybe it isn’t? He’s not sure how these mutagens work.

Mary: (whispering) *Psst, Boss, are you sure this is, okay?
Mary: A lot of these items seem dubious, and illegal.


Jerry assures Mary that it isn’t the item that is illegal or dangerous, it’s actually how you use it. Mary still has concern on his face, but just nods.

After some back and forth, and intimidating screaming from Grumpy, Jerry has decided to:

- Sell the PIZZA BOMB for 5000 ₵A$H.
(Judging from Grumpy’s rapid wheezing, it sounds like he was really happy to get this one.)

- Buy the CLOTHING DESTRUCTION RAY GUN (Jerry plans on giving it to Gerbera since they seem to know a thing or two about clothing destruction. Though upon closer inspection, it looks more like a squirt gun with liquid inside than it does a ray gun… probably was a scam, as it is with some products in the BLACK MARKET, but Grumpy assures Jerry it will still destroy clothing. Guess Jerry will have to wait and see.)

- Buy the Illegal powdered donut #2 (Jerry is so happy to find another one of these. Maybe this time he’ll be able to save it for recreational use during the weekend or holiday instead of using it for pizza deliveries or losing it. But having something that can feel like time is going slow means a longer weekend, yeah! Mary is concerned by Jerry's enthusiastic reaction, worrying he might be becoming ADDICTED, but Jerry assures Mary it’s fiiiiiiine.)

- Purchase contact information from the FORTUNATE HOTLINE (Jerry isn’t really into fortune telling stuff, it’s kind of creepy, not to mention the chance it could just be a scam, but Grumpy’s gargled wheezes were very convincing. The contact information seems to be ripped from an illegal magazine or something judging by the tear marks, and has information about the three fortune tellers listed on the back:

First one is Temmie Butler from Cattenom, which is from another world. A girl who will give you a small amount of HELP points to get you out of a situation, and even give you some REAL GOOD advice for something REAL GREAT to happen in a future update as a bonus. no consequences in calling her. Small amount of help points because all her advice is vague. She'll just want a very small amount of money, 25 cents, whatever that is. She’ll pick up her payment when she visits Jerry in what she perceives to be her dream in a future UPDATE, whether he is prepared to meet her or not.

Second is Leshanna Iraphena the elf from Lyst which is from another world. She will use her precognition powers to give Jerry some advice to take a certain timeline out of a situation, but will want a lot of money out of Jerry, probably 1000 BUX, whatever that is. She will get her payment immediately from Jerry’s bank account after calling her. She's also said to be pretty mean according to reviews. She will give you a medium amount of HELP points.

Third is a carpet beater name Felafaf, a demigod from another world who can change the destined tarot card Jerry is in currently with a different one to get out of a SITUATION, giving him a huge amount of HELP points to escape, but it's a monkey paws deal as the next situation is going to be far worse and Jerry will be stuck with a disadvantage of having extra SABOTAGE points against him for the next update. Her service is free, she just loves having fun changing people's destiny and sometimes fucking with them.)

Before they leave, Mary gathers the courage to inquire about the PREPAID INTERDIMENSIONAL WRISTPHONE, and learns it would be a good way to contact Jerry if he manages to return home. Unfortunately, it isn’t part of their planned purchases this time, but Grumpy says he’ll send it over to the other BLACK MARKET at the SECOND CHECKPOINT for another chance to purchase later.

After Jerry and Mary finish their business with Grumpy, Jerry calls his friend Harmon who also works for the BLACK MARKET to move the elevator out of the way so Jerry can escape.

Harmon: Ey’ you got it daddy-o!
Harmon: And yo, if you’re not busy, come chill with me and Vincent. Top floor!


Mary seems relieved after getting out of the BLACK MARKET, but their errands are not done . The moped isn’t back yet, so plenty of time for more ACTIONS as the UPDATE isn’t over yet.

Next stop is an all-purpose store called the MART ALECK. The place is pretty huge, and Mary is amazed by how much stuff the place has, running around the store looking at things like a curious little kid, analyzing and writing items down on his clipboard. Jerry had to keep a close eye on him so he wouldn’t get lost, but thankfully not for too long as he only had a few specific things to grab.

One of the stops lead them to the clothing section where Mary constantly eyes a couple of familiar brands of articles of clothing: VINEGAR’S HARPIN, and CONWAY’S THONG. Jerry recognizes them from a super popular graphic novel his old friend Antonio would read called NOISE. Jerry doesn’t keep up with it, but Antonio would often try to recommend he read it at one point, which Jerry highly considers since Antonio usually never really seemed passionate about anything. It MUST be good if Antonio of all people tried to convince Jerry to read it.

Mary: Boss, do you think I would look so cute in those?
Mary: Obviously I’m not going to buy them since I don’t have anything to pay with…
Mary: But I could only dream, can’t I?
Antonio: *Psst* Hey.
Antonio: Do me a favor, buy them for her.
Antonio: You’ll thank me later.


Yep, the usual stoic Antonio is still obsessed with the novels despite being dead. Jerry considers the prices and figures, ‘eh, why not?’

Mary: Huh? You’re… you’re letting me keep them?
Mary: I… Th.. THANK YOU BOSSSSSSSSSS!


Jerry demands Mary to stop his crying as people are giving weird looks and to just try the clothing on to see if it would fit. After a while, Mary comes out of the dressing room with his new clothes. The hairclip Jerry must admit looks cute on Mary, makes him look more feminine, but WHY COULDN’T THE THONG COVER HIS PUBES!?!?!?!

Mary: I kind of have an urge to study how matter works… and a desire to remove these clothing even though I just bought these? Weird, maybe if I lowered my pants a little I’ll feel better…

Jerry pleads with Mary not to do that.

After selecting their items, Jerry heads to the registers, and drops his items off to a salamander cashier to buy. Thankfully he kept the conversation to a minimum, with the conversation not going any farther as simple questions such as “how was your day” or “nice weather today, huh?” It’s nice to keep things straight forward sometimes.

During their shopping, Jerry has decided to:

- Buy some BANANAS
(he remembers the customer likes bananas, so he’ll save it for her for later)

- Buy VINEGAR’S HAIRPIN (Mary feels like mixing chemicals together wearing this)

- Buy CONWAY’S THONG (Mary feels like wearing less than he already is now as he wears this… seems like this article of clothing is actively trying to fail its purpose in life)

- Buy a SCREWDRIVER (Jerry doesn’t have room in his hammerspacial dimension right now, but he’ll hold it in the shopping bag for now.)

- Buy an AIRBAG (For safety. Maybe he can use this to survive a CRASH after an ILLEGAL POWDERED DONUT SUGAR RUSH? Regardless, it’s also in the shopping bag for now)

- Buy some LUMBER AND TREE SEEDS (specifically, he bought them for Mary. They will be sent to the :pizzid: Pizzeria. He got the following for Mary to use if he makes it back to his world:

3 poplar tree saplings (Grows around 5-8 feet a year, used frequently for firewood, long and dense which would be perfect for Mary's purposes)

Lumberyard contact (Frequently has pallets of wood, piles of sawdust, and firewood that will get disposed of due to imperfections in the city state guidelines. Perfect for Mary's purposes, allowing him to have agency in the type and amount of wood he gets as well as putting his campaigning skills to use as he plans his grand design and it isn't left up to you (requires a little bit of Jerry's help, but is well worth it as they could get in larger amounts!) (will be easier if he at some point gets a PREPAID INTERDIMENSIONAL WRISTPHONE, but for now, Jerry will have to help out with this)

100 Evergreen Spruce tree seeds (Grows around 2-3 feet a year, thicker and tougher, but has a lot of NEEDLES, which are incredibly important in plush society. Can grow 5 feet a year in good weather. This is a slower option than the Poplar saplings and allows for some variety.)

A few mixed bags of seeds (Jerry got a discount on them, which contain sunflower seeds, vines, tomatoes, potatoes, and other various random seeds, Mary won't know what comes out of it. Good for testing soil density in the area and checking for nutrients. Also might introduce new types of food to the Stuffies of Mary’s world.)


Upon buying the seeds and lumber Mary starts bursting with tears of joy again.

Mary: Th… Thank you so much boss!!!
Mary: I… I can finally prove to everyone that I can make a difference!
Mary: That I’m worth something to people!


Jerry sighs. Maybe Mary’s sister’s mental abuse really damaged his self-confidence. But at least he is growing out of it, his PASSION is probably strong enough to one day overcome that.

As Jerry exits the MART ALECK, Jerry sees Gerbera drive into the CAR OVEN Parking building. Shit, Jerry thought he’d be able to get his errands done before they showed up. Ah well. Might as well go pay to get the Moped charged. Luckily Gerbera was easy to find as they found a decent parking space in one of the lower floors, but he looks a bit upset after he spots Jerry.

Gerbera: Hey bud! Hey! There you are! That wasn’t really responsible of you!
Gerbera: Why couldn’t you wait for me? I could have used your help!
Gerbera: Your new kitty friend broke my phone and you ditched me immediately afterwards without helping me clear things up with Snowpea!
Gerbera: and not only that, I had to drive as fast as I could to get here before a swarm of those cute goslings tried to consume me!
Gerbera: I TOLD you we should have let those goslings pass by!


Jerry tells Gerbera that pizza delivery sometimes requires making sacrifices like that in order to make the delivery on time as he pays 10 ₵A$H in the recharging station in the parking spot to charge the moped, but Gerbera shakes his head in disagreement.

Mary: Sorry Gerbera, I tried to convince boss to take you along, but he was insistent on moving on as his prescience told him it was the safest path.
Gerbera: And yet, I got here no problem, with a quarter of an update to spare!


There goes Gerbera’s smugness again, talking about how great they are. Jerry decides to shut them up by giving them 100 ₵A$H so they can go to the ALL PURPOSE REPAIR STORE and leave Jerry alone for a while.

Gerbera: Hm… Thanks Jerry. I’m still a little upset, as I’m still worried about that mistake I made to Snowpea, and how you abandoned me like that…

To that, Jerry hands Gerbera over the CLOTHING DESTRUCTION RAY SQUIRT GUN, to which Gerbera’s face finally lights up

Gerbera: You’re saying this can destroy clothing?!
Gerbera: WOW! If that’s true, then this functions just like Snowpea’s other guns!
Gerbera: ALRIGHT! That settles it! Instead of using it, I’m going to save it in my HAMMERSPACIAL DIMENSION and give this to Snowpea as a gift as a confession of my love to her!


Jerry insists that it was actually meant for Gerbera to use to get out of a SITUATION later.

Gerbera: Hmmm… I really don’t want it to decrease in quality before I give it to Snowpea if I use it though…
Gerbera: but if you can think of a good enough reason to have me use it in a SITUATION, I’ll reconsider.
Gerbera: But I’m still giving it to Snowpea no matter what!


Jerry argues that it shouldn’t matter too much if Gerbera uses it. It’s not like they’re going to use it a whole lot of times during a Pizza delivery to make much of a difference.

Gerbera: You can never be too careful!

Gerbera takes the PICTURE OF SNOWPEA out of their HAMMERSPACE, and puts it in their wallet to replace it with the gun.

UNLOCKED SIDEQUEST: DON’T use the CLOTHING DESTRUCTION RAY GUN so Gerbera can give it to Snowpea in its highest quality
- Pretty easy sidequest, since Gerbera is reluctant to use it


Jerry thinks this sidequest doesn’t count as one.

But instead, here was a SIDEQUEST I forgot to put in after talking to P.I. Zzander. Sorry about that:

UNLOCKED SIDEQUEST: Give Purr Feckt some flowers to help with the NEGOTIATIONS for Mary.
- Judging by the flower design on the purse Jerry thinks she likes DAISIES or SUNFLOWERS
- Jerry hopes he can send Gerbera to her instead, but Gerbera is sure to refuse
- Probably best to get her flowers that are extra fresh in a later update instead of an earlier update, like at the store in the SECOND CHECKPOINT for example, though they might not have RARE FLOWERS that she’ll like.

Last stop, the STUFFED BANK! Jerry and Mary split up from Gerbera as they head to the bank while Gerbera heads to the ALL PURPOSE REPAIR STORE to fix their phone.

The STUFFED BANK is also a storage that not only holds on to ₵A$H, but also stores ITEMS in their POCKET INTERDIMENSIONAL SAFES which can be transferred to other banks.

A Penguin Bankteller name Johnathan helps Jerry out as Jerry decides to do the following:

- Deposited the Bananas
- Moved his bagged items to his Hammerspace
- Withdrew 1000 ₵A$H

And with that last action done, UPDATE 9 is finished. Gerbera catches back up with Mary and Jerry and has rejoined the PIZZA PARTY, now with their fixed phone. They are still at the FIRST CHECKPOINT and Jerry decides to take the time to consider that he has about 20 UPDATES LEFT to deliver the pizza after this one. He estimates that the SECOND SECTION will have about 5-7 SITUATIONS to deal with (depending on how the MAJOR ASSHOLE in the street will mess with them) and the THIRD SECTION will have 5 SITUATION which will only give him room to make about 8-10 mistakes that puts him in a PROBLEM.

Jerry’s Phone also vibrates, indicating that he got a NEW TEXT MESSAGE

WHAT ARE 3 ACTIONS JERRY WILL DO NOW?

>With Gerbera here, they will do some actions on their own unless you recommend they do something else. They will automatically leave with Jerry if he decides to continue the pizza delivery.


>BANK (can do multiple things)
- Lets Jerry withdraw or deposit ₵A$H
- Gerbera can do this too on their own, but the amount they’ll pull out can’t be controlled. They refuse to tell you how much they have.
- Jerry has 4000 ₵A$H in the bank
-attempt to rob it (Jerry is not DESPERATE enough to do this)
- store an item (you'll be able to pick up any items stored here in another bank at the SECOND CHECKPOINT later)

>Go to the store!
- It’s recommended you stop at the BANK first to make a withdrawal.
- Jerry has 1271 ₵A$H in pocket, Gerbera has 50 ₵A$H
- They don’t allow you to buy stuff with your bank card for some reason. System must be broken probably. So go to the bank first.
-You can buy and sell LEGAL items here
- I have items listed, but I’m going to leave the rest to you guys to come up with items! Please state what item you want there to be, and I’ll in a future post list them before the next update for you all to vote on with a price for each depending on the item’s effectiveness.
- If Gerbera is here, they’ll buy and sell items here too, but you don’t have control over what they buy or sell. You can try to convince them to buy or sell certain things, or save ₵A$H tho.
- Jerry’s HAMMERSPACIAL DIMENSION is FULL. Consider throwing or selling items
-Don’t worry, there will be another shop at the SECOND CHECKPOINT with similar items

BUY

- LUMBER AND TREE SEEDS = NAME YOUR PRICE! THE HIGHER, THE BETTER! (this will make Mary’s mood and friendship with Jerry SKYROCKET depending on how much Jerry buys, and will affect the ending depending on if you manage to find a way to get Mary back home. This won’t be in your inventory, Jerry will just have it shipped to the Pizzeria.)

- BANANAS = 1 ₵A$H (can use the banana peel to make someone trip!) (give this to the customer to finish the sidequest: find some bananas for Ramona/Rachael)

- IMPORTED SPRING WATER BOTTLE = 500 ₵A$H (Expensive because it’s imported from a rare hot summers, which is better than a hot springs! can be used to hydrate) (can replace the SWEATY WATER BOTTLE from the purse to decrease the percentage of Purr Feckt’s detection that Jerry used it by 5% bringing it down to 10%) (Expensive because it’s imported)

- Vinegar's hairpin = YOU ALREADY GOT ONE

- Conway's thong = YOU ALREADY GOT ONE

- Polaroid Camera = 19 ₵A$H (Somebody put a way-too-bright bulb in the flash, and now it's effectively a tool for blinding people alongside it's more common use of taking photos. )

- Goofy String = 20 ₵A$H (It can be a belt, a rope, a bracelet, a bundle of rubber bands and more! Comes in COLORFUL and EVEN MORE COLORFUL styles. You can also eat it! It tastes like liquor flavored licorice! It comes in a can with 3 uses)

- Airbag = YOU ALREADY GOT ONE

- A Lot of Sheep = 100 ₵A$H (You can't seem to count how many are in here without falling asleep…)

- Screwdriver = YOU ALREADY GOT ONE

Rice = 5 ₵A$H (Good for drying out your phone. (Sweaty Kitty would probably like this)

Duct Tape = 100 ₵A$H(Arguably the most overpowered item on this list. Can fix EVERYTHING!)

DUCT TAPE GNNUY = 300 ₵A$H It's a gun with little bnnuy ears at the end. it shoots a retractable roll of duct tape that you can use to pull yourself, but requires duct tape to reload after a few uses or the adhesive will wear off. Acts like a grappling hook, or a tape gun with a child friendly shape so it's not censored in over 17 countries! Kids love it, parents hate it!

- Your item here (price depends on what your item might be)

SELL

- PURR FECKT’S PURSE = select a value between 1-500 ₵A$H for the items Jerry will sell from inside the purse. (The more ₵A$H you want, the emptier the PURSE will be and the higher the percentage Purr Feckt will find out you used the purse increases, and the more you’ll stress Mary out)
Entire Purse is 1000 ₵A$H, (Mary will cry if you sell the entire purse, and you won’t use the purse to effect the percentage on how Purr Feckt will help Mary one way or another)

-TASTY DECOY CARDBOARD PIZZA = 50 ₵A$H

- VALUABLE AND DURABLE DIAMOND SEASHELL = (can’t be sold here)

- Illegal Powdered Donut #2 = (can’t be sold here.)

- Screwdriver = 4 ₵A$H

- Airbag = 30 ₵A$H

>Go to the BLACK MARKET
- It’s recommended you stop at the BANK first to make a withdrawal.
- Jerry has 1271 ₵A$H in pocket, Gerbera has 50 ₵A$H
- They don’t allow you to buy stuff with your bank card for some reason. They probably don’t want any investigators to track this place through someone’s bank history.
-you can buy and sell ILLEGAL items here
- I have items listed, but I’m going to leave the rest to you for guys to come up with items! Please state what item you want there to be, and I’ll in a future post list them before the next update for you all to vote on with a price for each depending on the item’s effectiveness.
- If Gerbera is here, they’ll buy and sell items here too, but you don’t have control what they buy or sell. You can try to convince them to buy or sell certain things, or save ₵A$H
- Jerry’s HAMMERSPACIAL DIMENSION is FULL
-Don’t worry, there will be another black market at the SECOND CHECKPOINT with similar items


BUY

- ILLEGAL POWDERED DONUT #2 = SOLD OUT

- ILLEGAL POWDERED DONUT #5 = 1000 ₵A$H (The sugar content is actually illegal in 17 different countries and consuming it will, for the briefest of moments, give you lightning reflexes! but after about [1 Update] you will suffer from an extreme crash of euphoria and a sugar coma.
- ANGERY RUBBER DUCKY = 1200 ₵A$H (Its squeaks taunt your target, making them angry enough to focus on attacking the person who is squeaking at them. Jerry thinks he can trick Gerbera into using it in a situation to make a getaway)

- WEED = 500 ₵A$H (technically not illegal anymore, but they still sell it to make it feel like the good ol’ days when it was illegal)

- MIND CONTROL DEVICE = 750,000 ₵A$H (this will let you mind control your target. And makes the rest of the quest too easy.)

- CLOTHING DESTRUCTION RAY GUN = 1500 ₵A$H SOLD OUT

- POWER CAPSULE = 500,000 ₵A$H (lets Jerry use a SUPER POWER for 1 UPDATE. The power is decided by what the voters want it to be.)

- JOTUND’S MIGHT = 400,000 ₵A$H (makes you bigger and stronger, about almost as strong as Mr. Armstrong! can’t be reversed if used)

- FORTUNE TELLER HOTLINE = YOU ALREADY GOT ONE

- PIZZID drone prototype = 2,000 ₵A$H (This was an invention from Jerry’s uncle… but it didn’t work out well. Somehow iti ended up in the BLACK MARKET)

TEAL SPOTTED MUSHROOM = 10,000 ₵A$H (Grants whoever eats it an extra life. Takes a frame rule (one update) to respawn... but will cause HALLUCINATIONS to occur.)

ELECTRONIC MAIL = 400 ₵A$H (An envelope containing nothing but pure electricity. You have no idea how it works either.)

SPECIAL MONOCLE = 2,300 ₵A$H (Has a number of properties such as X-Ray vision and true sight. Only has a limited number of charges however, and may cause meta slowdown by forcing the artist to animate the x-ray effect. Jerry thinks this might be more fitting for a tailor than a pizza delivery guy for some reason.)

A LYLUK BRAND SLUSHEE = 2 ₵A$H (A slushee of dubious origin that when drunk improves some of your stats for a few updates. Pizza flavored. (Gives Jerry +2 points for HELP in a SITUATION.) WARNING: HAS A 20% CHANCE TO EITHER MAKE JERRY SHITTY, OR TURN HIM INTO A LYLUK. (not recommended for Hippos.))

THE HOTTEST HOT SAUCE IN THE WORLD!!! = 600 ₵A$H (Guaranteed to melt your tongue or your money back! (May actually just be a jar filled with acid.))

- PREPAID INTERDIMENSIONAL WRISTPHONE = 1000 ₵A$H (Cell service that can cross dimensions, time is a bit wonky though, so some service exceptions may occur. But if you upgrade the service plan for an extra 2000 CA$H it CAN be reliable! Too bad you don't want to spend the extra cash. At least while you're here it works perfectly. Can be for Mary so he can communicate with Jerry if he goes back! Also so he can do stuff while he's still here in case it all goes tits up.) (NEW)

- HIRE DYON (3 Months) = $20,000/month (Dyon is a slime girl with the unique ability to copy and paste superpowers. Sometimes. Dyon can copy a power if she maintains contact for approximately thirty seconds; most powers will be removed from her menu after three months. Her paste therapy takes one month on average (give or take two weeks) and has a success rate of 100% for D-class powers, 50% for C-class powers, 30% for B-class powers, 10% for A-Class powers, and 5% for S-class powers. Dyon has permanently copied the [Electrokinesis], [Lesser Transmutation], and [Dreamstuff Pymary] abilities for herself and can use them at will. Dyon is a horrible employee. She demands payment up front, is brash and abrasive, almost never follows orders, and will bail the moment she can interpret a technicality in her contract. But if you can take the time to earn her loyalty, she'll renew her contract for peanuts and may even increase her copying success rate.) (NEW)

- VORETEX = $250,000 (Every vore fetishist wants one of these. This cyber-psionic augmentation creates a user-friendly portal to a pocket dimension in their orifice, which connects to a giant bio-module attuned to the user's DNA. Long story short, anything that gets eaten will fit. Banned in all civilized eating contests. Rumors of the ability to vacuum objects are considered silly.) (NEW)

- A KODAMA DOLL DRESSED LIKE A MAGICAL GIRLl = $5 You're not sure why this is at the black market - is that the shriek of an angry harpy in the distance? Grumpy insists you buy now or never speak of this again. (NEW)

- Your item here (price depends on what your item might be)

SELL

- WATER BOTTLE FULL OF THE SWEATY KITTY’S SWEAT = 1,000 ₵A$H (but the detection level will go up by 10% (total 25%)

-PURR FECKT’S PURSE = Besides the water bottle full of the Sweaty Kitty’s sweat, They find nothing of interest, but don’t tell Purr Feckt that… actually, do tell her, it’ll be funny.

-TASTY DECOY CARDBOARD PIZZA = They are not interested

- VALUABLE AND DURABLE DIAMOND SEASHELL = 1,000,000 ₵A$H

- ILLEGAL POWDERED DONUT #2 = 500 ₵A$H

- SCREWDRIVER = They are not interested

- AIRBAG = They are not interested.

>Read a newspaper
-Learn some lore, get hints, look at advertisements, get a sidequest, and other stuff.
- Something about a virus going, ads, and info on certain streets he’s heading to catches Jerry’s eyes.

>Chill with Vincent and/or Harmon
- They might give you some helpful advice, or maybe give you a side-quest.
- Harmon and/or Vincent can potentially become a PIZZA PARTY member. But it all depends on how your negotiations go with each of them, what you give them one of them, and who is with you. a dice roll will determine afterwards whether they will join you or not
- base percentage of one of them joining Jerry is 50% each
- depending on what Jerry tells them to recruit any of them could either increase, or decrease the percentage, choose your words wisely! Or don’t. Have fun with it!
- You’re chances to recruit them after spending another action to talk to them after each fail increases by 10%
- you can spend multiple actions to try to recruit them in each UPDATE
- your chances to recruit them also improves by giving them a certain pizza with various results (you can only give one pizza related item to one of them)
(Tasty decoy cardboard pizza increases by 20% (the first bite is heavenly, but only the first bite))
(A piece of the customer’s pizza increases by 50% (will decrease customer satisfaction though))
-Vincent will automatically join you if you got WEED (you don’t have any, Find some in the BLACK MARKET maybe)
-you can only give one person one item per action
-Your chances to recruit them might increase or decrease depending on who you’re with

- EXTRA CHEEZE STREET (The major asshole Jerry will deal with here is EUGENE pizzid fanatic and theif.
- MUSHROOM AVENUE (The major asshole Jerry will deal with here is CASEY THE PILLOW and cult leader

Jerry’s Hammerspace

PURR FECKT’S PURSE (15% chance Purr will notice Jerry used it) - Jerry didn't steal this, he just hasn’t had the chance to return it to her yet after she left it at the courthouse. He’s serious! Contains her wallet, important evidence for another trial (hopefully one in the far future, Jerry would hate to have to deal with her today if she comes to get this), feminine products, keys (how did she get home without her car or house keys?), a pair of handcuffs. Water bottle full of sweat, And pretty much anything else you want. Jerry would’ve guessed she has them because she's a prosecutor, but the fuzzy pink design screams "Personal Use". The more Jerry uses this, the higher the chance Purr Feckt will find out it’s been used. Currently at 15% chance she’ll find out.

VALUABLE AND DURABLE DIAMOND SEASHELL - Sell it at a black market to make a LOT of ₵A$H (Jerry thinks there is one at both CHECKPOINTS. Though the second CHECKPOINT will most likely give more money for it) using it will decrease its value though. Jerry can return it to the MUSHEUM for something good to happen as long as you don’t use it until then (near the second checkpoint)! Jerry can use it to hide in for stealth, or to protect himselfself from attacks very easily (but it’s value will go down) Jerry isn’t giving it to P.I. Zzander, he’s an asshole who will take all the credit. But he can probably give it to Purr feckt to help negotiate in helping Mary.

ILLEGAL POWDERED DONUT # 2 (NEW) - The sugar content is actually illegal in 17 different countries and consuming it will, for the briefest of moments, make your perception of time move SLOW, but after about [1 Update] you will suffer from an extreme crash of euphoria and a sugar coma.

SCREWDRIVER (NEW) - has a changeable tip. Phillips head AND Flat head all in one.

Airbag (NEW) – Car not attached.


Jerry’s Inventory Out of the Hammerspace

TASTY DECOY CARDBOARD PIZZA - It is a cardboard pizza that you put over your ordinary pizza. It's made of 100% organic cardboard, not that it matters. Strangely enough the first bite ALWAYS tastes and FEELS like pizza, but contains no nutritional value. Every bite after that tastes like cardboard, but this would prove useful if you're fighting off a swarm of pizza lovers. WARNING: 20% Jerry will drop it as it is on top of the customer’s pizza box.

WALLET - (contains his bank card, drivers license, insurance card, 1271 ₵A$H) in pocket

JERRY’S SMART PHONE – Contains phone number to the pizzeria, his uncle’s, and the Sweaty Kitty’s. W2K and Gerbera are blocked. In pocket.

RADIO - Gerbera uses this mainly to dance in they’re costume. One more use before it is out of batteries

THE ZA COSTUME - Dress up as :pizzid:’s mascot!

MACE - Got it from working a second job as a royal guard in another quest. Good for bonking, hitting home runs, and may cause clothing damage for some reason. Gerbera would rather only use it if their life is in danger and will otherwise take a really good reason to attack someone with it to protect the pizza.

CLOTHING DESTRUCTION RAY SQUIRT GUN - Destroys the clothing of an individual.

Gerbera’s Inventory Out of the Hammerspace

WALLET - (contains their bank card, drivers license, insurance card, 50 ₵A$H, their business card, A picture of SNOWPEA) in pocket

KEYS - to their home, in pocket

SMART PHONE - contains Snow pea’s home number, Jerry’s Smartphone number, Snowpea’s Smartphone number, :pizzid: pizzeria, Snowpea’s work phone, Snowpea’s parents phone number. In pocket.

Gerbera’s Equipment:

:pizzid: HAT

:pizzid: POLO

PANTS

UNDERWEAR

Mary's Inventory

CLIPBOARD AND PEN - self explanatory

Mary’s Equipment:

TROUSERS –Always keep a spare pair! You may never need them, but consider yourself lucky if you don't. Comes with a belt. One size fits all no matter what somehow!

VINEGAR’S HAIRCLIP - from the popular graphic novel, NOISE! It gives whoever wears it a weirdly comprehensive knowledge of chemistry. (Equipped)

CONWAY’S THONG - Merch from the popular graphic novel, NOISE! It makes you feel way happier with yourself but also makes you wanna wear minimal clothing (Equipped)

WHYYYYYYYYY

I'd ask why we don't just store the pizza in the bank and then withdraw it later, but those stiffs might simply throw perishables in the trash, or the bank may be closed for whatever reason.

Go, go, go! Don't waste a single update further!

Alright for the fortune teller hotline I think that we should call Temmie Butler, she seems like the most reliable one. While Leshanna Iraphena is too expensive and Felafaf is too inexpensive, never trust somebody who does anything for free. On the topic of buying or selling, I think that we should take what we have already bought and if we don't have enough room in our hammock space, then just give it to our trusty sidekick to hold on to it and not sell a single thing. We are going for efficiency and all the thing we have are probably the property of the pizza store. As for what I do suggest for the pizza dude to do is simply read a newspaper, other than that I think that we should hit the road as soon as possible.

Message from PEA: there were some concerns over how overwhelming the inventory management and actions were (20% of this update was from listing the inventory and actions to take). To fix that for future updates, I think what I want to try and do over the weekend is make a wiki page or pastebin page for items, side quests, extra points, and other stats to keep things less cluttered for everyone. I'll admit I went a bit overboard. What I want to do is prevent overwhelming people in the future updates. My apologies. That said, I'm thankful for the critique to make this quest better and hope you all continue to enjoy following the quest.

Alright! Let's do this:

> #1: Talk/Text

We just got a message. We should respond to whoever it is before anything else. Start with that. I'll describe four options for this since one of the ones I list may involve the person who is already texting us. Consider whoever is texting us as top priority in this list.

-Talk to Gerbera: Yeah yeah, they're annoying, but you really need to impose how much shit you get into on a daily basis, not to mention giving them the rundown on what you'll be dealing with on whatever street you're going to. They've been with you so far, really try to emphasize just how many updates each SITUATION you got into slowed you down. Your ultimate goal with this chat is to either get them to take things a little more seriously, or to at least respect that you have to make tough choices if you want to deliver the pizza on time. You're ahead of schedule for now, but the hard part has yet to come. There'll be many complications, and some of them you won't be able to escape. You WILL be slowed down by some bullshit. And all of this bullshit that Jerry has barely figured out how to navigate is going to become Gerbera's responsibility if they fail this one. And Gerbera won't have him to bail them out, whether they succeed or fail will come down to his decisions.

We've avoided all temptation to totally abandon Gerbera so far, and we aren't gonna go out of our way to leave them behind (tempting as it may be). But if they can't pull their weight and will slow down the delivery, then they'd better be carrying taxi fare because Jerry will not hesitate to dump them wherever if it means getting the job done.

(Secretly, Jerry is a nice enough guy that he probably would in spite of his distaste for the flower, but he at least needs Gerbera to try and stay focused on the mission.)

-Text Temmie Butler: You did just pay for the contact info of fortune tellers. Temmie seems like the best option to test with. Assuming all monetary values as ₵A$H for the moment, she's the cheapest of the bunch (not counting Felafaf, but you would argue that the SABOTAGE points are actually a higher fee than however much 25 cents comes out to). The others would be better to test when you have a specific SITUATION to request their help with, but for now you'll settle with a minor HELP bump to your next SITUATION, and some advice on how to get something REAL GREAT in the future. Leaving it all up to Polt what the fortune will be about, they're fun to come up with.

-Call Purr Feckt: More specifically, Purr Feckt calls YOU. Apparently Zzander mentioned that you were asking about her, and she decided to check in. Naturally, she has your phone number because your cell phone was evidence in the trial you were in, and she took full advantage to invade all your privacy. Like a bitch.

She isn't interested at all when you mention wanting to send Mary home, but suddenly becomes VERY engaged when you mention her purse. She demands that you drop by her office to return it, and is chuffed when you tell her to visit you instead since you're on the clock. Her retort that she can't drive over due to YOU having her car keys is shot down by the fact that she can take a cab, which is shot down because YOU have her wallet, to which Jerry deals the finishing blow that she can call the Crust City equivalent to an Uber as long as she remembers her credit card details. And of course she does! After all...

She has a perfect memory, doesn't she?

...For the sake of her pride she ends the conversation with some bullshit to make it feel like she won, despite ultimately agreeing to your terms of meeting you on your route.

Bonus:
-Text Rocio: She added her number to your phone during your battle with Mr. Armstrong. You ask if she was that naked fairy he had to deliver to their home apartment some weeks back (Moving Day reference). She firmly denies the accusation, pointing out that her spots are blue, not red. You point out that you never mentioned the spot color of the fairy you mentioned, and that she looks exactly like her regardless of that (Her glow was a bit dimmed after subtly trying to boost up her man, so Jerry could see her with his shades again).

When you're not talking to Gerbera, they're probably either texting Snowpea, or chatting with Mary and complimenting the pup on her new accessories.

> #2: Chill with Harmon and Vincent

You WERE invited to join them on the rooftop after all.

Hang out with your buds for a short bit and make sure you bring Mary, NOT Gerbera. Mary is adorable and endearing, Gerbera is annoying and endearing, but not endearing enough. Ask Gerbera to either get the dent in the moped fixed so it won't have to be drawn every update, or to go buy batteries for their radio at the store (or just sell the radio, however they want to balance their inventory).

Give Harmon the stupid Tasty Cardboard Pizza, if you don't then you're just going to drop it next update anyways. Try to recruit them both. You can raise the chances of success if you can convince them that Mary is COOL. Maybe one of them is a NOISE fan and will conclude that Mary is based due to the accessories? You might just get unlucky, but it's worth an attempt.

> #3: Leave

Get out of here and drive off into the next SITUATION awaiting you. Of the streets you can take, my vote is for THREE HAMS ROAD!

Jerry's asshole ex-girlfriend has a neat design, and seems like a fun threat to deal with. Who knows what SITUATIONS she may cause? My personal suggestion is to have her mistake Mary for Jerry's new girlfriend and get furious that she's been replaced.

ALSO! Her father is the chief of police. That could mesh pretty nicely with our current Purr Feckt sidequests. All the more reason to go with her.

This but also Text Sweaty kitty, we already did our shopping so I dont have much to add.

The wristphone is happening next shopping tho, lets be nice to mary! Plus I'm sure mary can pay you back with... other services... Like magical objects and CANDY from the other dimension. You like powdered donuts right, well what about plush candy that's guaranteed to rot your teeth ! (with several years of sole use) (probably) (or maybe its healthy who knows)

rolled 59, 74 = 133

Votes are in: you are going to be

- Texting/talking to people

- Hangout and negotiate with Harmon and Vincent

- GTFO


I'm going to be rolling the dice to see how you succeed in recruiting Harmon and/or Vincent into the PIZZA PARTY. Here are calculations

base percentage
Harmon = 50%
Vincent = 50%

-30% each for having Gerbera on your team (sorry, they already know somehow that Gerbera is on your team even if you sent Gerbera to do stuff while you're talking to them. I'm not letting you off that easy)

Harmon = 20%
Vincent = 20%

+20% to Harmon for giving him the TASTY DECOY CARDBOARD PIZZA

Harmon = 40%
Vincent = 20%

+ 10% Harmon has not read NOISE, but he still thinks Mary is pretty groovy based off of how determined he is towards his goals.
+ 15$ for Vincent. He is disturbed by Mary exposing his pubes like that, but is a big fan of NOISE and Mary's NOISE clothing has gotten his respect.

Harmon = 50%
Vincent = 35%

First dice roll is Harmon, second dice roll is Vincent.
Harmon needs to roll a 50 or lower out of 100 while Vincent needs to roll a 35 or lower out of 100. Good luck!

RESULTS ARE IN

unfortunately, you have failed to recruit either of them. Sorry about that. But don't worry, I still will have plans to have them show up now and then (through pictures from text messages and other moments) They will however be rooting for Jerry's success!

currently, you're heading to THREE HAMS ROAD where Jerry's ex GF W2K is at. There were two votes to go there, but nobody else voted to go anywhere else. If you have not voted yet, you can still vote for your destination!

here are your options starting from this post: https://questden.org/kusaba/quest/res/1014571.html#1017373

Alright for the street I will choose MUSHROOM AVENUE. I don't know why but they seem the most unpredictable and the strangest. We don't know what we will be dealing with on that street.
