Inquire about drugs

Inquire about drugs
"Well--" you begin as you take the level out of Kate's backpack, "I need to find out how much Brainsate this can get me. It's... not good level, but it was grown in the Spooky House."

"...Brah, really?" He immediately goes from mildly disinterested to curiously taking the level from your hand. "THE Spooky House?"

You tentatively nod? "I... can't guarantee that it's HAUNTED or anything, but--"

"Brah." He digs an unmarked bottle of pills out of his pocket and tosses it to you. "I think that's like eight. You get me more haunted level, I'll hook you up."

You have acquired Brainsate x 8.

"Oh, shit?," Kate blurts out. "I didn't think you were superstitious, my dude."

"I'm not," he says, "but I sell to a lot of peeps that are hella into ghost stories. I don't lie, though, so I'm not about to just make shit up. You're not just makin' shit up, are you?"

You shake your head; Kate backs you up. "Nah, I saw it myself. It's legit."

"Damn," he replies. "Damn. Yeah, you bring me that weird, I'll hook you up with some Brainsate."


...There was something else you wanted to ask about--

"Somniplan," you mutter.

"Oh, yeah," says Kate with a point. "That was on the brochure or whatever, right?"

"How much do you know about Somniplan?," you ask Lagi.

He gives a subtle shrug. "Not much. Alpha-blocker, mostly used for like... PTSD and shit. It's s'posed to keep you from dreaming--best pill on the market for that, though it's still kinda hit-or-miss. Used to go by Apidone, and they marketed it for high blood pressure... but the world's fucked up and I guess anti-nightmare pills are the better sell. Named changed to Somniplan a couple years ago, I think? I don't carry it, but I could get some easy enough."

. . .

"I've gotta say," you begin, "I'm... kind of impressed with how many details about these drugs you can remember. Like, that's all off the top of your head? For a pill you don't even carry?"

He gives a slight shrug. "I got ways."

. . .

Huh.

Given how brief his answer is, you're not sure you should press much further on that particular subject.

"What other kinds of drugs do you carry?"

"Aww shit," Lagi chuckles, motioning to the open trunk of his car, "I got the works. Steroids, hormones, stimulants, painkillers, level-- ...Okay that's actually all I got, I just basically listed everything in my trunk, but that's a lot of drugs brah. If there's anything else you're lookin' for, I usually know somebody. I'm actually lookin' to get into cybernetic implants an' shit here pretty quick, I just got a few more calls I'm waitin' on."

Well, don't think we need anything more, so might as well leave.
Though I kinda wonder how implants would mess with the Alcazar.

I dunno, some painkillers may be useful at some point. We should inquire as to their price.

.... The fuck? is this due seriously looking into becoming a ripperdock or is he just into getting the implants and you still need someone else to install them?

... Yeah I've been playing Cyberpunk 2077 the last couple days. What of it?

I've been playing Shadowrun and Outer Worlds recently, so my first thought was Street Doc and Bonesaw.

Ask if he has any tips for growing level! Also maybe ask what kind of video games he likes, just so we can sort of get inspiration for another video?

+1 for gardening tips :)

Also +1 for gardening tips. If there's anything else we can grow in the backyard-- e.g. peyote (although this place might not have the right climate for peyote), poppies, khat-- we can possibly diversify a little and expand the Spooky House drug offerings lol.

Heck, you can grow hallucinogenic mushrooms in bags of Uncle Ben's rice, so we've definitely got some cultivation options. And gardening is good for anxiety XD

+1 for getting horticulture lessons. We learn how not to kill plants, he gets a steady supply of material from the Spooky House.

Are we going into gardening as Player's new hobby?

Anyway, "how to grow level" is too broad. Let's focus. The backyard has level in it, but it's pretty bad quality. Ask how to care for the level you have, to improve harvest quality.

Perhaps if you survive to the end of harvest season, you can ask about sowing.

Cybernetics has my interest piqued. We'll almost undoubtedly be unable to afford it (like EVER), but what kind of stuff does he have in mind for stocking up on?

Other than that, ask what the best time of the day is to call him, and to let us know how people like the haunted level.

+1 to asking to keep in touch, it's almost definitely helpful to have a friendly relationship with our drug dealer!

+1 to asking to keep in touch. Also, ask him to let us know when he has any Somniplan or cybernetics available.

Hum, the way he dodged the subject about his memory... Could it be cleantex?

Maybe we should remind him to breathe. Just out of general safety concern
11th Dec 2020, 9:50 PM
if we go full cyberpunk would that carry over to the Alcazar?
11th Dec 2020, 9:54 PM
We could see if cici wants an eye and test it that way.

We have recently acquired a vested interest in spooky things after moving here. We are knee-deep in spook. Know anyone who might know anything and doesn't run their mouth all over town?
