At the end of my last post I planned to try gathering enough money for the more expensive items. After that I noticed that the price of dagget (a mechanical dog) had come down in a couple of days – indeed, it appeared to have lost 100 creds of its price during each day.

The dagget proved to be a versatile thing. It usually followed me everywhere I went. If I wanted to leave it somewhere, I could remove its batpak (fancy name for a battery) and it would wind down in a couple of turns, when its reserve power was all used up. When turned off, dagget could also be used as a container. This gave me an obvious idea – I could use the dagget to hide a helmet from the museum (I had earlier stole a leotard that was another part of the same outfit).
I also found out that the dagget was of use, when I visited the home of the convicted socialist, since it found an invitation behind a wallpaper. It was an invitation to a meeting of secret society at 6. To join the society, I had to bring the marks of Bison, valve and medallion, both of which I had managed to procure earlier.
The invitation didn’t say where the meeting was held, but it wasn’t difficult to figure out that it was the temple where I should be heading. Indeed, the robot that had earlier denied my entrance now let me in. Inside, I firstly found a bar where I could buy a bottle of wine, with a cork. Removing the cork splattered the wine all over, which is probably important for some cunning puzzle.
Being a part of this freemasonry resembling secret society had its perks. Few of the droids had ended conversation by shaking my hands. With my new “hoofshake”, I could convince the travel agency to sell me a ticket to the Fabulous Riverboat. Even more importantly, the jobcentre now had new opportunities for me.
|I love trivial jobs|
I now had to go to workplace to work as a manager for a day. The only thing stopping me was head-high carpet in the office trying to make my moving difficult. Fortunately, my trusty dagget kept the carpet at bay, letting me enjoy my job and a hefty paycheck.
This was all for the current session. I assume my next task is to explore the area where the Fabulous Riverboat goes. See you in the next post!
