I've made a retrospective clarification to the use of Drunken Faster, as well as buffed Baker, as I felt it wasn't really matching up to the other ones in usefulness.

Hmm, yeah baker sounds a lot more useful now. The two turn version of baker could've been replaced by an employee working the stove for a turn.

You have picked the skills Generator, Copier and Eraser. You may now use the Unshaken for any of these tasks at will. Better keep it safe!

After a few moments of consideration, you decide it'd be best to stick behind the bar for this talk. As much as you'd like to walk around, it's... well, it feels a bit odd. You turn up the music a whole bunch, take Stax to the far end of the bar, and confront him.

First, something positive-- couldn't hurt. You don't have much direction, here. You just try and say what's pressing.

That feels familiar. Sure, Greene-- you don't remember a thing like that. But do you remember a thing like that?

You hear Sublimate begin to speak above the loud music, her honking finally audible. Her and Bloomy seem to have their attention on your scuffle, though Laren is just staring at the floor.

Along with turning the music back down to a reasonable level, you begin to wash some dishes, starting with one of the plates-- seeing as you have none free to use. You're relatively happy to see Stax joining in with the other dirty plate-- the one which once held the Yeah, Screw You, Stax. Nice.

Stax turns back around for a moment, still washing absentmindedly.

Besides small talk at the bar, you've got a few options here-- evening will be properly starting in a couple of turns now, and you've got time to use The Unshaken for various tasks-- or continue to wash dishes. Bloomy is just about halfway finished with her meal, and looks like she's taking her time with it, even though Sublimate's about ready to leave.

You make a mental note that The Unshaken can seemingly produce any named liquid with the Generator ability-- the only limit is what sorts of funky names you can imagine up.

Cup status: 0 occupied, 3 dirty (Rooted Bean, Dynamic Dynamite, Ashen Corrugible), 3 free
Plate status: 2 occupied (Bloomy's TGCB, Stax's unfinished meal [1/3] ), 0 dirty, 2 free
Scavenger ability: Unavailable (0/1 uses)
Intrusive ability: Enabled

It would be good if we have someone help us wash the cups. Does Laren still have something she hasn't paid for??

Generate two servings of liquified gorilla.

It occurs to me, maybe stax sent NAME here to test if we're a player controlled character.

ooo I agree with this, but maybe something like
>Generate some Curaçao
if it has to be a named liquid we've seen...
>Generate Vodka

If we're gonna be slightly boring and pick a liquid we already know, let's go with chloral hydrate. We may need it to deal with unruly patrons. We'll likely only be able to pass off x-treme marine to harbringers.

It takes a bit of consideration to figure out what you'd like to generate first with the Unshaken. The first tempting option is something extremely difficult to get elsewhere-- how about a full cup of flesh-eating bacteria? No, that's too dangerous, and you've endangered Bloomy enough today. Chloral hydrate? While it's helpful, you feel like it's a bit boring, especially since you haven't needed it lately, and could probably test out existing liquids at another time.

No, no, there's one thought that really piques your interest: Liquefied Gorilla. You're not even sure you know what a gorilla is, but this is bound to produce SOMETHING interesting.

Meanwhile, the conversation centered around Laren's being here continues. You decide, in classic Drinkmaster Greene fashion, to be supportive!

The Unshaken is a bit difficult to fully get used to, but you uncover the keypad on the side, which lets you type in a phrase to Generate. While Stax occupies his time washing one of the 3 dirty cups, you start punching in 'Liquefied Gorilla'.

Oh, jeez. You mistype the name as you're distracted by what Sublimate's saying-- a possible risk to your cover here in Terrats! You don't think that glowing gold person would like it if you were suddenly documented on Starnet, even if some details were removed.

Retyping the name takes another few moments as you speak.

Finally, typed in correctly! You start to fiddle with the 'accept' button, and in a moment, the Unshaken begins to whirr. The sound is... not pleasant, and you start to wonder where exactly the liquid animal inside is coming from. Hyperspace? Either way, the whirring, grinding, and gentle squealing isn't pleasant.

There's a small readout on the side panel, which you begin to take into memory-- it seems to be a description along the lines of the ones you've seen in The Cabinet, and thus gives you an adequate description of the horrible slurry inside.

[Image: 52DhOi2.png]
[Image: GNpdhDC.png]

As you pour the contents of the Unshaken into a suitable container in your Cabinet, you also clean the golden shaker using its in-built Eraser function, making destroying the contaminants very simple.

You've got an opportunity here! Unless you've changed your mind on payment, Sublimate seems to be happy going out to grab you some ingredients-- but it'll depend heavily on what you want more of, right now. With no real metric as to what ingredients cost or what her and Bloomy's orders were worth, you'll be shooting in the dark a bit; regardless, this is a good opportunity to replenish some of your favorites.

Evening is about to begin. You've got this next turn to wash dishes, generate new liquids, or do any other rest activity, before the patrons begin streaming in once more.

Intrusive ability: Enabled


[Image: RWXWGt6.png]

Thanks to the Unshaken's computer readout, you've gained a new entry in the Cabinet on your newly-generated substance.

Sorry for the delayed update! Had a bit of a busy week, but I want desperately to keep up the pace.

Laren's boss is somebody a few of you might have already met, in a place not so far away.

Coffee beans aughta be cheap and useful. We could also use some more fruits. We're out of gonit milk but we probably have a different kind of milk. Choral hydrate is probably best not discussed in public and unicorn tears would likely be expensive. Oh and we need more cucumbers, we don't have enough of those.
