...yeah, that was always my issue with magic in the game.
No real balance between tech and magic save for something like a Fuel Air Explosive, The “Chunky Salsa Effect” (frag grenade in a small enclosed area), a Tungsten rod from orbit., or a couple Cyberzombies (which generate their own negative background count) armed with miniguns.
While on the subject of poor days at work…
I think my favorite line is ” I’ve never gotten any salary… and what’s vacation time?” XD
*edit* When she says “I’m a dead human too” it’s because she’s half-human half-ghost. Her ghost half is that “flying marshmallow” that follows her around everywhere. Ghosts look like marshmallows for some reason.
Aya: By the way, you’re also a living human, aren’t you? Why do you work in the Netherworld? Youmu: Me? I’ve never thought of that. But I’m a dead human, too, so… hmm. Aya: Don’t think on it too hard, or I’ll get worried. I just asked so that I might get an answer like “I get a high salary” or “I have a lot of vacation time”. Youmu: I’ve never gotten any salary… and what’s vacation time? Aya: Ah, what a pity. Youmu: Oh , I don’t need any sympathy… I get a snack at 3 o’clock, and I’ve gotten sick leave before, I guess… Aya: Truly a pity… Youmu: Anyways, I’ve served the Saigyouji clan since I was born, so it’s natural for me. Aya: I’m starting to wonder if the natural thing to do is always right. Youmu: The natural order of things is ideal. They say it differs from person to person, but I’m not talking about that kind of surface-level common sense. The dead belong to the Netherworld and the living belong to this world; the youkai eat humans and the humans defeat youkai. I’ve been taught that the natural order of the world is everyone’s ultimate truth. Aya: And one of your ‘natural’ things is to have no salary and no vacation time? Youmu: (Weeping)
Am in hospital with an infected foot from stepping on glass. They’re gonna have to operate to dig the last bits out, blech. It came right through my shoe! Had to throw them away.
At least the staff is nice! And my boss is cool, he dropped by this morning to ask if I wanted my work computer (he’s funny guy, ‘m sure e wasn’t serious).
Hope everyone has a better day than I am!
Doesn’t sound like any fun D:
I’d actually like to have a computer to work on if I were n the hospital. Laying in bed all the time w/o somthing to do would drive me MAD XD
My lovely friend Cynthia brought my Dell writing machine, and this hospital (Austin Heart Hospital) has WiFi. I’m just too gunked up on antibiotics etc. to do anything but watc cooking shows, chat, and post in here with the occasional email.
I have a ton of stuff to read, a glucose tester to learn, and a huge booklet on what to eat, and wen and how to eat it. Sigh.
