TDD V2 Chapter 1, Part 5: The Cost of Living

*Beatrix’s Perspective*

Nothing’s ever free. There’s always a cost.

[Sustenance Dispenser Options: Alpha, Beta, Gamma, Delta, Omega.]

[Alpha: A grey vitamin blend, meant for general health and wellness for most humanoid races. Contains small quantities of every essential nutrient and mineral. 500 calories per serving. Meant to taste like mashed potatoes and gravy. Costs 1 Soul for 3 servings.]

[Beta: An orange vitamin blend, meant for general health and wellness for most humanoid races. Contains small quantities of every essential nutrient and mineral. 1500 IU of vitamin A, as beta carotene per serving. Meant to taste like mashed sweet potatoes and carrots. Costs 1 Soul for 3 servings.]

[Gamma: A yellow vitamin blend, meant to boost the immune system of most humanoid races. Contains small quantities of every essential nutrient and mineral. 500 milligrams of vitamin C per serving. Meant to taste like lemon iced cream. Costs 1 Soul for 3 servings.]

[Delta: A red vitamin blend, meant to supplement the consumption of beef and other land animal products. Contains large quantities of every essential nutrient and mineral. 1000 calories per serving. 20 grams of protein per serving. 2000 IU of vitamin A, as beta carotene per serving. 500 milligrams of vitamin C per serving. Meant to taste like ground beef barbeque. Costs 1 Soul for 1 serving.]

[Omega: A silver vitamin blend, meant to supplement the consumption of fish and other aquatic animal products. Contains large quantities of every essential nutrient and mineral. 500 calories per serving. 10 grams of protein per serving. 1000 IU of vitamin A, as beta carotene per serving. 500 milligrams of vitamin C per serving. Provides 1000 mg of fish oil, 300 mg of Omega-3 Fatty Acids and 200 mg of EPA+DHA. Meant to taste like a seafood medley of shrimp, crabs, lobster, various kinds of fish and mollusks. Costs 1 Soul for 1 serving.]

In order to feed myself and this gluttonous Gnome, it’s going to end up being rather expensive. The electricity isn’t too bad. For thirty miles per hour for six hours, it only cost a single Soul. The price of running the lights, heater and other appliances is negligible.

The biggest problem is food. I’m assembling and disassembling my rifle at the moment. Even if I’m too small to carry it around, I can still do a little hunting… It’s fortunate that it came with a bipod, compressor and night vision scope. I’m a little concerned that the sun still hasn’t come up yet though.

According to Linda, I’ve surmised that the days are supposed to be close to twenty-four hours. However, it’s been nearly two days since that momentary glimpse of sunlight. Venus has circled this planet several times now and it’s been ‘condensed’ down until it became a similar size to Luna.

Now, let’s see if I still remember how to hunt without relying on mana…
