Filbert emerges from the large tube, wielding a BONESAW. He demands that Ruby and Tom, being so clearly infected, must be operated on immediately. He says he will cut them until they are clean.It would appear Filbert is rather adamant about this.It would also appear he's gone completely off his head.[As always, try to keep most running discussion to the IRC room at irc.rizon.net , /join #rubyquest , so as to avoid cluttering the threads too much. Just practice a little self-moderation and try not to flood things.]
Run upstairs. Close the hatch before he gets through.
Continuing the fine tradition...
I would advise fleeing
Oh COCKFUCK this shit.
Have Tom tackle Fil while Ruby attempts to use the tranq syringe while he is pinned.
Tell him OH GOD LOOK BEHIND YOUThen run away
DON'T DO ANYTHING. JUST LET THEM DIE SO THIS SHIT WILL BE OVER.
Tell Filbert that he's right - He's the only clean one here, and that the hatch is open for him. He should escape and leave you here.If he listens, follow him up then push him through into the plane of teeth when Mouthdoor opens.If he doesn't, back into the 'fan' room and lay a quick trap to push him over the railings into gorey splattitude.
HEY GUYS WHEN IS THE NEXT RUBY QUEST THREAD NOT GOING TO BE ON HERE
TOM: use MANLY PHYSIQUE to takle filbert.RUBY: use TRANQ SYRINGE to put him out
>>3598726>Run upstairs. Close the hatch before he gets through.Filbert is obviously fully-mobile and you have absolutely no head start. Climbing a ladder right next to him probably wouldn't result in a getaway.If Ruby and Tom are determined to flee, they should find a better method.
Someone is going to die if they fight, and it won't be Filbert.
>>3598778Then attack him. Have Tom utilize all his arms and weapons to pin him down, while Ruby uses the tranquilizer.
>>3598778MANLY PHYSIQUE to disable Filbert, followed by a healthy injection of tranquilizer. Let's end this nonlethally, if we can.
TOM: COMMIT SUICIDE!RUBY: FUCK CORPSE!
>>3598778Distract him with a question
>>3598778Have tom attack with shovelcane, crowbar, scalpel, and syringe all at once.
run into the number 6 room!
Can we have an overview of our inventories?
>>3598778they should have tried it anyway, and be killed horribly...what? back in my day you could actualy lose games! you kids are spoiled with your jrpgs and your xboxes and whatnot.
combo move filert like we did stiches
>>3598778Flee east to the Fan room.
MAN I CAN'T WAIT FOR THE NEXT NOT RUBY THREADBETTER POST AS MUCH AS I CAN IN HERE BECAUSE THAT WILL CERTAINLY MAKE IT GO AWAY FASTERKINDA HOW POSTING ANGRILY AND DEMANDING TO KNOW WHERE THE FUCKING RUBY QUEST IS MAKES IT APPEAR FASTER
EAT YOUR OWN SHIT
>>3598778Recite the Hippocratic oath out loud.
>>3598836I doubt he'll listen. He's beyond listening perfect sense now.
Run to the fans :D ;D
Flee to the right.Open the door to Lab B.
Have Ruby KICK the panel she is standing on into Filbert's faceThen Tom charges in with CANESHOVAL and beats Filbert in the head until he stops thinking conscious thoughts
>>3598850The locker room is only accessable through the floor, and if we try that Filbert takes us to peices. Ditto the upstairs and mouthdoor.If we can talk to him, then we could convince him to escape (through mouthdoor.. yum!). Otherwise, all we have left is the fan room.
Tell Filbert "OK, but this is not a good place for an operation."
Filbert rushes at the two of them with his bonesaw. It's clear he isn't in any mood for discussion!>>3598789>>3598792>>3598796>>3598802Tom springs into action with his weapons at the ready. He will end this non-lethally, if he can.Filbert may be mutating rapidly, but Tom's MANLY PHYSIQUE is still more impressive than that of the good doctor.
RUBY: PERFORM SEX ACTS ON FILBERT!TOM: PERFORM SEX ACTS ON FILBERT!
Oh god-damn it NOW? You're doing this NOW? Just as I have to go to work.*sigh*I guess I'll catch up on sup/tg/ later then...
>>3598879ROW ROWFIGHT DA POWAH
Do no harm, physician!Pull a Captain Kirk by pointing out that Fil's rather freaky-looking arm is obviously unclean, and that therefore, he must remove it.
>>3598879Ruby: Try to distract Filbert so that Tom can get in a good hit
Can we get a quick inventory check?
>>3598839But he is still thinking of his profession in some twisted, incredible sense. Even now, in his state, he means to try to help them (in his own definition of 'help') with their "infection."It's that he seems to be thinking within the limits of his own definitions that make me skeptical as to whether or not he'd listen.
>>3598904I feel like Ruby would distract Tom more and only get in his way now.
get rid of his weapon
>>3598879Ruby, lend a hand!Try to pull that Bonesaw from Filbert's SPINDLY FINGERS with your glove whilst he's concentrating on Tom.
>>3598879quad weilding, nice
Yiff yiff yiff
ruby sneakly sneaks behinde filbert and trips him from behinde while tom hits him with traqlizer
Guys, let's keep Ruby out of this for now. If Tom has to worry about protecting Ruby that's just more to distract him from the fight.
>>3598917Thats a good way to not get the hand you lent back.
>>3598928As much as I used to love Ruby threads, I have to agree, this is all making the actual furfags feel way too welcome here.
Rediscover your forgotten fighting skills, learned from spending several years among both Navy SEALs and the monks in Tibet.
>>3598910>>3598896Filbert is too focused on his murderous rage to listen to reason. It's also apparent that unlike Tom, he has no intention of ending this non-lethally.His mouth suddenly snaps open into a ferocious, gaping maw as he bellows out a shuddering roar.
>>3598966Uh-oh.On second thought, better scram. Run to the fan room, and try to either push him down to the fans or get him to fight subject 6.
>>3598966CROWBAR TO THE JAW, FOR THE LOVE OF GOD.
Jam the caneshovel down his gullet!
>>3598966do that classic "Wedge mouth open move" with the crowbarwhile distracted, hit him up side the head with caneshovel
ATTACK THE MOUTH ITS THE WEAK POINT
>>3598966I'm afraid Tom must hit him in the guts with the business end of the shovel.
>>3598960That sergal shit is a particularly noxious smell that won't go away.
use all four arms in a manly suplex to not him out
Tom: Throw the tranquilizer bottle into Filbert's mouth!
>>3598966Stick that caneshovel into his face-hole. Assuming it won't cause Tom to put his arm too close to the teeth.
>>3598966Strike his weak point for massive damage!
>>3598966Saw arm extended? SMASH THE SAW FROM HIS GRIP!
>>3598960Actual furfags...like Weaver.
Yeah maybe ending this not lethally is a bad idea, kick it up a notch and BAM him upside the skull, then stab away with the pointy end of the crowbar if he falls.
TOM: USE VOODOO POWERS!RUBY: PERFORM SEX ACTS ON FILBERT!
>>3598996RUBY could do that, whilst TOM gets on with it.
>>3598991>not him out>not him>knot him
HIT DILBERT WITH THE SHOVEL
>>3598997Who has brought something indescribably annoying here.Though it's too late now. He's brought his fanbase to fill /tg/, so he'll stick around forever being fed attention by them.
>>3598975>>3598978>>3598979Tom attacks Filbert's GAPING MOUTH with the CROWBAR!
Break his damn elbow
>>3598966Tom: Hook neak with caneshovel, wack knee with other hands holding crowbar and pin Dr.F to the ground mouth firstRuby: Inject the Dr with the tranc/syringe
Geez, guys! The last session went so well without a single troll or fag. Why couldn't we pull off the same thing this time? Why?
Goddamnit, this fucking stupid /v/ drawchat is still around?Get your own website already for fucks sake
>>3599013TOM: Attack Filbert's anus for massive damage!
>>3599013Stop thinking, go to berserker rage, attack anything and everything, don't give him time to act.
>>3599013Follow through with some WAILING PUNCHES and HARDCORE HEADBUTTS.
>>3599013Pull your hands back before he bites down, Tom!
>>3599013Kick Filbert in the nuts.
Filbert bites the CROWBAR in half.
Punch him with your mini arms!
>>3599013Grab the saw with Tom's extra set of arms!
>>3599030Not a bad idea...
>>3599032Okay, NOW we run. I don't think we can take him after all.
>>3599032Suggest chewing metal is probably bad for his teeth, then RUN THE FUCK AWAY
>>3599032FUCKER THAT WAS TOM'S FAVORITE INSTRUMENT OF DESTRUCTIONFLY INTO BERSERKER RAGE, USE CANESHOVEL
>>3599032Throw the whole syringe of tranquilizer in his mouth.
>>3599032Have Ruby throw the oxygen tank into Fil's mouth.
>>3599032Time to run, our weapons won't do shit
use all four arms two to attack with the cane shovel and the other two to grab the saw
>>3599032Oh fu...Retreat through door to fan room. Double team him like we did Stitches, only... this time, we don't have a non-lethal option to hand.So he has to go into the Fans.
>>3599063Oops, forgot to mention: Weaver, ALL WHO SUGGEST THIRD EYE ARE EITHER JOKING OR TROLLS DON'T LISTEN TO THEMI assume you're the former.
Give him the O2 tank to chew on.
have ruby get into the fray to help tom, she can stab him in the back with her scaple
>>3599086Worked in JAWS, amirite?
>>3599032quickly check both Ruby and Tom's inventory? We need to see if there's anything in particular we can use.Also, damn it man, I have school tomorrow and it is already 2 am. you start these at the worst times.But I wuv you~
Have Ruby kill Filbert with her latent sexy psychic powers.
looks like this is it for Ruby Questimage spammers and post spammers....this is itRIP ruby questi blame the discussers and whiners who spammed useless threads.
>>3599088DO THIS! YOU KNOW ABOUT CABLES! REMEMBER THE CONSOLE?
Ruby: Shout RED?! and point behind phil whilst looking surprised
>>3599083Fuck yeah, Lee Enfield + sword bayonet.
>>3599113He IS the troll.
and then Ruby WAS the trolls.
>>3599119actually no, i'm just being realistic
Ruby: Just use the tranquilizer already while Toms keeping Dr.F busy
[You guys are REALLY going to have to cut down on your posts, you're going to flood the thread out and the faster you do that, the more threads this is going to take up. Try to avoid making multiple duplicate suggestions or "this!" / "seconding this" posts and the like.Remember that the more bloated the thread gets, the longer it takes me to catch up.]>>3599025>Stop thinking, go to berserker rage, attack anything and everything, don't give him time to act.Filbert and Tom really get into it now. There will be no quarter given by either party.Someone's going to die!
>>3599126Ruby doesn't HAVE the tranquilizer. But I'm beginning to think that may be what it takes to bring Filbert down.
sod it, try and lead filbert into patient six's room
>>3599131Ruby: Help Tom! Try to keep out of his way, but you'll have to find some way to help too.Tom: Rely on MANLY PHYSIQUE YOU'RE NOT THINKING ANYMORE RAWR
use all four arms to hit him while grappling
>>3599131Ruby: Bash Filbert over the head with the O2 tank!
>>3599131Just chill while tom wins thanks to PLOT ARMOR.
>>3599131Ruby sneak attack Dr.F ankle and inject it with tranquilizer :D ;D
Whack his head with the oxygen tank if it's still available. Failing that, retreat and try to push him into the fans.
>>3599131Shit, no, Tom CAN'T die! Ruby needs to kick out his legs or something, or PRICKLY FIST him in the face again.
didn't we lose the PRICKLY FIST some time ago?
Manly Physique is failing..
>>3599169His teeth are getting too close! Retreat!Push him in the fans!
What's Ruby doing, just standing there and watching whilst Tom dies?Go for Filbert. His legs, or with the Tranquilisers, or take his saw using your glove, whatever. But DO SOMETHING, RUBY!
Ruby: stop screaming in the corner, like a james bond girl, and actually PICK UP THE FUCKING GUN HE DROPPED AND SHOT ODD JOB!
RUBY: DO SOMETHING. ANYTHING.
>>3599169Ruby use the tranquilizer already even if you have to fish it out of Tom's pockets
>>3599174MANLY PHYSIQUE never fails.
>>3599182Tom needs to have a rageier face
RUBY: attack with the oxygen tank
>>3599169Use O2 TANK on MUTATED FILBERT
>>3599182Then Dr.F looks down to see Ruby sucking him off?
Tom uses his MANLY PHYSIQUE to stave off Filbert's attacks and his TINY ARMS to slice him open with the SCALPEL.
GO TOM! :D
I suggest Ruby performs SNEAK ATTACK, quickly!
>>3599220who said this??
>>3599220yare yare daze
>>3599220Looks like someone...Put on SunglassesNeeds a doctorYYYYYEAAAAAAAHHH(wonder where sunglasses went)
>>3599182does he remember removing the eye now?Ruby: Jab him with the tranqs remaining. Or smash him over the head with the debris from the door.
>>3599220y r they in whole
put filbert into a locker and seal it tight
>>3599220Leap back, Tom! We don't know what might come out of his stomach!
RUBY: Sneak under from between bearfag's legs and start ripping his fucking guts out. TIA
>>3599220can it be tranquilizer time now?
/_¬ <bitches don't know about my scalpel
>>3599254sorry railroad doesn't stop there
>>3599220FUCK YEAH - Now reach in, eat his heart and gain his courage.
>>3599249Yes! Take his heart! Fill your Life guage, increase it by one, and obtain the Tambourine of Breezes!
Uh... His heart is contaminated. I don't think we should touch it.
Ruby: Pull Tom away if it looks like Fil is about to do a FINAL ATTACK and kill Tom on his way out.
Fuck, yeah, finally here for a ruby thread
>>3599261The posters in general made the decision to fight, and they have only limited control over Tom and Ruby's actions, since the characters do have their own motivations and instincts. Weaver is resolving the fight the way he thinks the characters would resolve the fight, taking various decent suggestions and attempting to satisfy as many of them as possible. You can stop being upset that you weren't listened to now.Try to push Filbert back into the tube if he isn't already done for and slam the door back down on him.
IRC GOERSGET A MOD TO SHOW UP.THEY'LL BE ON THE RIZON SERVER CHANNEL #4chan
Filbert is down.>>3599254Tom injects Filbert with a hefty does of the TRANQUILIZER in case he decides to get back up.
>>3599298I don't like the look of Tom's scar.
>>3599294When did /tg/ get so whiny? Running to mods and e-mailing moot over every little thing.
>>3599298chugga chugga chugga chuggaCHOO CHOO
>>3599298Have Ruby use the eye on filbert.If nothing relevant is revealed, they should either try and restrain him, or kill him gooder.
Stop and talk for a while, now that you're not in an immediate danger.It's been like ten threads since you last talked about this stuff. Since then, the unbreakable trust between you has been shattered regardless, it turned out Ruby killed two people for some reason, her eye is trying to kill/corrupt her, Filbert confirmed you're both dead, Subject 6 is fucking freaky, Ace and Stitches are after you, Filbert just tried to kill you, and everything in general is getting from bad to worse.It's all taking a toll on your psyche and sanity. You can't let it chew on you, if you want to get out alive and sane. Let all that weighs on your heart get out. Leave nothing unresolved. Try to regain the trust you used to have. Take comfort in each other's presence, assure each other that you will both get through this. Trust me, you will feel much, much better afterwards.
Whew...we made it. With the tranq he should be out for a while...Take the saw. Loot Filbert for items. Then the security room.
>>3599307No. We fucking don't use the eye. WE DON'T USE THE FUCKING EYE. We stash him back into his tube and leave him there. AND WE GO AWAY.
>>3599298Drag him off to the Tube chambers. Better to keep these guys all contained where we know they are. Be mindful NOT to touch his mutations, some look bitey still.
Pat filbert down for useful Items, cautiously.Then lets head on up to the security room.
>>3599298Restrain the body as securely as possible. Even if he is dead for now, he may be back soon. Perhaps tie him to the vacant post in the Dummy Room?
search him first ya gitz
Drop him in the fan.We can't take that risk.
Give 6 the saw..and filbert.
Take Filbert's bonesaw and search his body.
>>3599323>Restrain the body as securely as possibleNeither Tom nor Ruby has any rope, and the only locker that would open is already jammed shut with Stitches inside.>>3599312>>3599322Ruby and Tom loot the BONESAW, but that's all Filbert seems to be carrying. Tom tells Ruby she should carry it, since she's lacking in weapons.They both check their inventories, then head back upstairs to the security room.
>>3599353Talk before opening the door:>>3599308Then open. Be careful.
>>3599353into the security room!
>>3599357Nobody's really rolling any san checks. We've topped out a while ago.go East
refill traqulizer in case of another fight
>>3599364You should talk anyway. It's not just SAN checks.
>>3599353quick question, what ever happened to that green staff with the odd device that plugged into the top of it? is that what the shovel is using as a pole now?
>>3599365>Hey, Tom fixed his crowbar!WHOOPSYOU JUST HAD TO RUIN IT FOR HIM DIDN'T YOU
>>3599367yes refill and give it to ruby this time
Throw Filbert into evil teeth door room.
>>3599367>>3599383Ruby and Tom run back downstairs first, to grab another syringeful of tranquilizer.This is the last of it!
>>3599401And now you're going to spam us with three horrible abominations at the same time or something? Sadist.
>>3599401Pump into dilbert just to make sure.
>>3599412Let's not and go into the security station.THE SUSPENSE IT BURNS US
>>3599412Hmm lets just cheak the security station first
Tom and Ruby return to the upstairs hall and use the SECURITY KEYCARD to open the SECURITY ROOM DOOR.
>>3599391This is possibly a good idea... Assuming it consumes him, and he doesn't fuse with it and become a tooth covered horror.
Tom peers into the room ahead cautiously.There is a HUGE CONSOLE on the north wall. There's also a door beside it, a maintenance hatch on the east wall beside which are scattered MANY NOTES. There is also a piece of strange GREEN WOOD lying against the HUGE CONSOLE. Finally, there appears to be an INTERCOM inset in the array of security monitoring equipment.
>>3599444Pick up wood, read notes, operate console.
inside the security room: rape
read the notes
Ruby: take green woodTom: Exam notes
>>3599444This is the room we first saw Ace come from.Standard explore everything action plan is go.
>>3599444Pick up wood. Read the notes. Mess around with the console. In that order.
>>3599444You know the drill.
>>3599444examine papers by hatch, being careful nothing grabs them from indide the hatch :D ;D
Take GREEN WOODRead MANY NOTES
Ruby adds the piece of GREEN WOOD to the shard she is already carrying. Like the other staff, it resembles a pattern she's seen somewhere else, but it's still missing a piece.Tom picks up the MANY NOTES and flips through a couple of them.
Before the obvious take/read notes, take staff, etc., cautiously open electrical maintenance hatch with BLUDGEONY SHOVELCANE -- The wooden end, just in case there's a current.
>>3599465>>3599465HAHA FUCK YES
>>3599444examine those little teeth-like things on the floor just in front of the console
I knew it! Evil gods!Also was I the only one who thought there'd be eight subjects? Eight lockers and all.
Also the Hound might be Daisy instead of Maddie. Oh the suspense!
>>3599465We're gettin' Call of Cthulu up in this.
Sure is mythos in here
>>3599465try the intercom by the door
>>3599465Try operating the CONSOLE.
>>3599469>>3599482>examine those little teeth-like things on the floor just in front of the consoleThey appear to be marks on where the operator should stand. They're right in front of an alphanumeric keypad, the only set of controls on the entire console Ruby would know how to use.>>3599471>cautiously open electrical maintenance hatch with BLUDGEONY SHOVELCANE -- The wooden end, just in case there's a current.Tom tries the hatch, but it's stuck tight. A small LED readout below it reads "OVERRIDE ACTIVE, ACCESS DENIED"
>>3599524Read through the rest of the notes together, then the console.
>>3599524try using the intercom
>>3599509>try the intercom by the doorThe intercom is marked as an EMERGENCY SURFACE LINE. It should connect directly to the outside world.Tom presses the button to make contact, but he's not holding his breath for a response.
>>3599524Tom: try the door to the lobbyRuby: Try the intercom looking thing
RUBY: type: "DISABLE OVERRIDE"
have ruby use third eye to serch the room for hidden clues
Suddenly the intercom radio crackles to life. Tom can hear someone on the other side.
>>3599548NONONONONONONONO THIRD EYE
>>3599524Look up "Daisy", "Lucy", "Ruby" and "Tom" on the console.
>>3599549Don't tell them where you are right away. Ask about who they are and the other standard stuff first.
RUBY: Turn the power on by the wall switch where the fleshy thing is, type winamp, play don't stop me now.mp3TOM: Trash the console to the music.
>>3599549Have Tom ask for permission to leave facility with Ruby (but do not use names, just ask for permission for 2 to leave to the surface)
>>3599541Order a Big mac and fries, no wait you don't eat anymore, try saying "hello is anyone there?"
>>3599549Tom: "Hello, ground control? This is Major Tom."
tell them everything except about us being dead and our mutations ask for help
>>3599549Just say "Hello"
Mind what you say, lest they order exterminatus.
Tom attempts to make contact with whoever's on the other end.A strangely familiar voice fires off a string of incredibly foul (and very unprovoked) profanities directed at Tom.Tom pauses momentarily, stunned by the response. Just as he attempts to explain his situation, a strange crunching sound -- like something being eaten -- comes from the other end, followed by static.It would appear the line is now dead.
>>3599574JOHN QUEST LOLOkay, never mind. Read the rest of the notes. Then try inputting your names to the console.
Stitches so just ate filbert.
>>3599574YELL NOT TO MISS THAT LAST POINT THIS TIME
>>3598716oops blew someones cover/hidey hole with static noise. Oh well, how is Ruby doing with the control counsel?
>>3599583No, John just ate Opal
>>3599574Tom: Try to think who's voice it wasRuby try the lobby door
>>3599551Yes, The third eye hurts to use...B.. but also sooo good. Deep inside.. like we want to fall in to the darkness.. and feel that feeling.. forever.. and never wake up.. ever.>>3599553Good idea.>>3599574Does.. the door to the lobby.. open? Oh God.
Tell John to calm the fuck down.
See what you can do with the console.
have tom use counsol while ruby uses her third eye (we have it for a reason)
>>3599599From now on, everyone who uses Third Eye is a troll in my book.So STFU troll.
Ruby and Tom attempt to operate the console, but nothing seems to work. Someone's locked them out.
NO matter what NO THIRD EYE.Check that console, see what response you can get it to display.
>>3599606Read the rest of the notes, then.Then try the door. Maybe the security override or whatever is found there.
Is there a slot for the high access card we have?
>>3599606Hatch is stuck, computer's broke, intercom is, uh, occupied. Go through the door.
>>3599606Hack the IP mainframe through the subnet-multirouters!
time to combine the rest of the wood, head back downstairs and put it into locker?
>>3599635We're still missing a piece.
Proceed to the lobby
>>3599599NOTHIRDEYETHAT THING IS EVIL
>>3599618NO! CHECK THE FLESH GROWTH FIRSTand the door is a trap, everyone knows it. That's why no one suggests it.
>>3599606Try lobby door with caneshovel
>>3599595>>3599613>>3599618The door to the lobby is already open.
>>3599647Well, have a look inside.
>>3599643If by flesh growth, you mean wood piece, then we already took it.
>>3599647inb4 "oh hai ♠"
>>3599647hmm don't trust that door it's open,Poke caneshovel into door way for traps,then try and peek into the lobby
>>3599647Crack it open slowly, and very carefully peer through.
Thread is autosaging after only an hour.Trolls and spammers make me ill. Time for a new thread. Also, my vote is for 'poke caneshovel into lobby, hope it doesn't get eaten.'
>>3599710The autosaging is *good*. It lets us be troll-free for hours.
>>3599710no, no new threads, keep this one alive as long as possible, last time we managed 500 posts
>>3599710as i've said before.KEEP POSTING! RIDE THIS BITCH TILL IT DIES!
http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive/3354728/#3355401Just gonna leave that here. >>3599715..500? No kidding..?

>>3599727GREET MONITORFACE WARMLY
>>3599727SHIT THAT FREAKED ME OUTBack off, call Ruby, try to talk with him/her. (S)He's proven to be rather benevolent in the past. Be careful anyway.
calmly talk to him while drawing weapons and slowly moving towards the escape to surface ladder
>>3599727Wave and meekly say "hi".
>>3599727 Well that was ea- OH GOD
>>3599727Ruby and Tom: Oh, Hello Weaver!
Tom has entered the LOBBY a bit excitedly. Freedom seems so close.
>>3599764>Freedom Freedom? But you're still sick! You're going to be eternal deathless unholy abominations forever if you leave before getting rid of the disease!Talk to Monitorface. Try to get some answers.
>>3599764Politely ask just WHAT THE HELL THAT THING IS.
say hi and thank him for helping us.
>>3599764Communicate with the odd looking individual there
did we remember to close the door into the security room? have ruby do that now plox
>>3599764Calm down, ask it's name and what it remebers
ask if he will let us just leave peacefully and promise we will send help if not draw weapons and make a cool catch phrase
>>3599764ask him if the hatch is locked and/or booby trapped.
Clearly he is a techpreist, requisition a bolter.
>>3599773>>3599766>>3599775>>3599777The unhealthy-looking figure hooked up to the wall introduces herself as "Bella".She says she is very sorry, but she can't let you leave.She goes on to say she has top priority control of every security system in the facility and she has instituted a lockdown.
>>3599803Ask her how the situation can be resolved. Explain that we've kind of had it with this place and want to leave.
>>3599803"Why is there a lockdown? Can't you take it off?"Also call Ruby. This shit is important and she needs to see it too.
ask why we cant leave while drawing weapons and getting ready for a fight to the death
>>3599803Ah, that's why. Well, we still have tranquilizer... But we shouldn't waste the last dose. Ask Bella if there's any way to cancel the override. Do we need a permission or something?
>>3599803Ask to for her to take off the security override for the console and the hatch.
No honestly, WE DON'T WANT TO LEAVE. Not yet anyway.First we need to regain our memories and get rid of our disease of undeath. Ask Bella about these things.
i'll say this. don't kill her.
>>3599803Well... that sucks. Not really surprising though.Take the opportunity to ask her to explain a few things. Or even better, FUCKING EVERYTHING!
>>3599803Ask why can't we leave and what can we do so we can leave
ask bella if she has any knowledge of what is going on topside? is a quarantine in effect?
>>3599803Question the current situation of the facility: why can't they leave? What caused all this? Is there a cure to these mutations?
Try not to threat her. She has control of all the security systems, she sure has some around here.
>>3599807Ruby joins Tom and attempts to convince Bella to let them out.Bella explains that she is not in charge here. She is merely acting on orders her superiors issued before they abandoned the facility.She simply cannot open the surface hatch for them. Those are her orders.Tom menaces for a moment, and Bella responds that she will not fight him.
IMPORTANT. ask if she saw what happened to ace.
ask something that someone has already suggested
>>3599861Ask what happened to lead to the lockdown
>>3599861Ask about diseases and curing it, memories and how they're returned. If she can't answer, kindly ask her to direct you to her superior(s).
have ruby use third eye? if not we still need a piece of the staff and also we should go check go stiches
ask her what the fuck ace actually IS?
>>3599861Explain to her that if things continue as they are there isn't going to be a facility left to salvage even IF her superiors return.Perhaps it'd be best if she explained the situation from the beginning so they can get a better understanding of what's going on.
>>3599861It wouldn't matter if we beat her up, I don't think we could get the hatch open without her
>>3599877>have ruby use third eye?NEVER
Ask Bella what she's doing plugged up to the wall.
>>3599862>IMPORTANT. ask if she saw what happened to ace.Bella says she's been focused on watching you two, but if he isn't walking the halls looking for patients, he might be in COLD STORAGE. It's where he keeps the things he's been collecting.>>3599869>Ask what happened to lead to the lockdownHer superiors ordered it after this facility was abandoned following an outbreak of violence by both patients and staff in the wake of the events on November 1st, namely the suicide of Chief Diagnostician Red.>>3599884>ask her what the fuck ace actually IS?Ace is a very loyal orderly. But lately he seems to be ignoring her.>>3599885>Explain to her that if things continue as they are there isn't going to be a facility left to salvage even IF her superiors return.She knows.But these are her orders.
Ask Bella for information on Lucy, Ruby, Tom and Daisy.
Tom: Tell Bella Ruby never tells the truth.Ruby: Tell Bella you always lie.
>>3599901Ask directions for cold storage. Ace or not, I have the gut feeling we have head there soon.
Ask Bella why she has apparently been helping us if she's not allowed to let us out of the facility.
>>3599901Ask Bella if there are circumstances under which the lockdown can be lifted and the door to the surface opened.
Ask what day it is today, and how long it has been since Ruby came out of her cell.
ask bella why she was foused on us and where cold storage is head to cold storage with weapons at ready
>>3599901Ask about the nature of the treatment.
ask her if she knows why ace was after them and if he meant harm or notprobably want to find out about cold storage from her and head down there to see if ace "collected" the last wood piece
>>3599901Ask if Bella knows what he has been collecting. I mean, there is no reason to disturb Ace unless we have to.
Go find Ace, apologise for being a dick to him, die horribly.(Okay, not really, but I'm imagining the last piece of the green wood that we need is in Cold Storage, and we'll need to get through Ace to get there.)
>>3599901would bella like a hug? *group hug*
>>3599901Ask where in the facility Cold Storage actually is.(Als, I'm guessing Cold storage is now home to the Dummy and the Dial?)
>>3599894>Ask Bella what she's doing plugged up to the wall.Bella is kept on life support. Those things don't attack her. Her mind must be intact for her to continue operating. She suspects they don't want to taint it with her running the facility's systems.A very angry-sounding thumping noise shakes the ground in frustrated peals and an echoing, eerie voice comes from the lower levels.ＬＵＣＹ! ＬＵＣＹ?!ＬＵＣＩＬＬＥ!
the date! what is today's date?
>>3599944That's Subject 6 screaming. Ask her about Six and Lucy.Then ask about yourself - Ruby and Tom. Ask about their past, how they ended up here, what exactly happened to them.
>>3599944Ask about #6. What happened to him? Is he dangerous?
>>3599901As Bella why she was watching Tom and Ruby.
Ask Bella how many times this situation has played out before.Could be nothing, but...
>>3599978Ask her if she would've kept watching if for some reason they had started to make out. Is she a STALKER!
>>3599944(for those that can't those characters)LUCY! LUCY?!LUCILLE!
>>3599986Nah, it's coming from lower LEVELS. As in, he's not that far yet.Probably broke out of his own room, but I doubt he can get past the security door.
[okay, that's about 20 suggestions to ask for cold storage... how about a little self-moderation, folks? come on.]Bella says Cold Storage is on Level 2.>>3599919>Ask Bella why she has apparently been helping us if she's not allowed to let us out of the facility.She was ordered to stop you from leaving. She was never ordered to avoid keeping you alive.>>3599920>Ask Bella if there are circumstances under which the lockdown can be lifted and the door to the surface opened.As long as she is holding manual lockdown in place, surface access cannot be obtained.>>3599950>the date! what is today's date?Today is October 31st.
>>3599991 LEts do the time warp agaaaaaiiiin
>>3599991>Today is October 31st.What? WHAT?!TIME RIFTS! PANIC!I suspect the cold storage is beyond Red's Room of Crazy. You should investigate.
>>3599991How long have you been maintaining lockdown?
>>3599991Ask her the year lock down started, and the current year it is now.
>>3599991Either we're in a time loop or we've been stuck in here for a FUCKING YEAR.Holy crap.
lets head to cold storageask bella if she knows were some siccors are
thank bella.ask more questions or continue to cold storage.it would be easier to just lay out everything bella knows than have to ask for each bit of information.
>>3599982With this new information... this could be an idea.
Ask her about the facility in general.
>>3600014>it would be easier to just lay out everything bella knows than have to ask for each bit of information.This. Why doesn't Weaver ever do this? It'd save plenty of time for all of us.
>>3599982>Ask Bella how many times this situation has played out before.Dozens of times.But she says you've only made it so far as to see her three times before.She says that this is as far as you've ever gotten.As long as she's alive, she will maintain the lockdown.
Could you ask her to give the names of each patient, and the numbers assigned to each one?
>>3600023Amnesia and shit. Cool.Ask her how they should continue. Surely she knows some way to help them?
>>3600023And will her death end it?
Ask what would happen if we killed her.Before we do anything stupid,that is.
>>3600019>Ask for scissors or at least where they could find a pair.Bella says that all scissors have been confiscated and hidden after the last time the patient in Lab B got hold of a pair.
>>3600045No scissors, then. Never scissors.I really think we should investigate the cold storage now. I doubt Bella can tell us anything new.
what did the patience do with the siccors
>>3600045Good reason not to give him scissors then.
Ask how many times did we kill stitches.
>>3600055I bet Ace has some scissors. If we want them is another question.
>>3600020because then it's railroading, if he can't hold our hands to play the game for us why would he give important information nobody thought to ask for?
>>3600023this explains alot, like how one rencarnation of ruby can be a tom murdering psycho and moregood to know that even if we die we can try again
Ask if Red killed himself permanently.
>>3600037>>3600040>>3600039>Is she trying to say that if she was killed, the lockdown would lift and they would be able to escape?Bella wants to show you something.A panel on the wall opens, revealing a glass window. Beyond the glass, there is water.Orange light filters through the shimmering waters. It would appear this room is very near to the surface.
Ask what usually happens next, so that old mistakes may be avoided.
Ask Bella if she wants to be killed. She's on life-support and trapped in an abandoned facility full of horrible mutants, right? That can't be fun at all.
>>3600045Ask about the third eye.
>>3600085>good to know that even if we die we can try againI doubt that. The game would go into stagnation, when neither Ruby nor Tom would remember anything, and had to do the whole shit all over again.
can we contact her superiors? under what conditions would we be able to leave? is there any way to cure the desease?
Well, that doesnt explain much what would happen if she dies...?
>>3600087Orange? That means it's twilight. Or nuclear dawn.
>>3600090This is good. Ask it.Maybe this is some kind of a test? Something's putting Ruby and Tom through all this many times until they get through, for some reason?
>>3600087Ask to elaborate, for we are unsure what this means.
>>3600087What's with the orange light? It's sunset? OR FIRE?
You know guys, at this point we have an option of trying to break the glass and swim to the surface from there.
>>3600100true, but stillbe cool if for a round we play as the duo of stitches and hound while tring and escape the Horribly mutated ruby and tom
>>3600117But we'd still be sick and amnesiac.STOP TRYING TO GET OUT WHEN WE STILL HAVE BIGGER PROBLEMS THAT WILL ONLY GET WORSE IF WE GET OUT BEFORE DOING THEM
Every day for over a year now, Bella has had to watch the sun rise and set, from just barely below the surface. Strapped to this wall, right next to the exit, able to watch the outside world, but never touch it.Yes, she answers.If you kill her, the lockdown will end.
>>3600131we got here 3 times before and never killed her...why?ask her why
>>3600131But we can't just kill her. She hasn't done anything wrong.
>>3600131>If you kill her, the lockdown will end.Ask her if she wishes to die.If she does: Tell her you're sorry. Then kill her, as quickly and painfully as possible.
don't kill her.........yet.
>>3600135because ruby and tom are nice people perhaps? she probably also told them this last time and they both declined to kill her and tried to find another way, only to die.
Getting out fixes nothing. We need to solve our problems here, especially considering Ruby's got a third eye that sees horrible things and Tom is Goro. Things need some answering here. Ask Bella why things repeat themselves like this and how we can stop it.
>>3600131i still would like to give bella a hug. *group hug*
We're heading for teh AMBIGUOUS END! :D ;D
>>3600131...I think we should go to cold storage.
>>3600139>Ask her if she wishes to die."Yes."
>>3600151we don't know that, could be they attacked her and were riped appart by automated systemsLets not tempt anything and ask her why
Dont kill her.We (or I) dont know if something else would happen if she dies.
>>3600166Did this happen any of the other times we were here?
We'd let loose all the horrors of the facility if we killed her now..
"But if we kill you... Wouldn't you get back to life again?"
>>3600166Ask if she has anything crucial to tell them. When she is done, end her life. Be quick and merciful. Cry if you feel like it."We're sorry. We're so, so sorry."
ask bella if she can physically leave this station? or will disconnecting her from the station kill her?
>>3600168My theory: Lockdown ended. We get out.But everything else down here is free to get out as well.
she could be unable to commit suicide and knows that if she says killing her would not end the lockdown that we would never kill her. she could be lying so that we do kill her.
>>3600179If we just open the doors and leave, everything else gets out too. We need to fix the problem.
C-can we...?Should we...?I.. I can't bring myself to even think it. We just.. can't kill her can we? Even if it would be a mercy to her.. How about we try to find that last bit of GREEN WOOD. Check out what is in the locker.. then come back? We might find.. something.
>>3600178Maybe that's the point.Maybe these weird mutations/regenerations only occur after the subject has expired.
>>3600166They still have things to do... ask if she has any advice on how to make this right? Keep the others from being a danger?
SAVE BELLASAVE BELLASAVE BELLASAVE BELLASAVE BELLASAVE BELLASAVE BELLASAVE BELLA
>>3600178> "But if we kill you... Wouldn't you get back to life again?"Bella is the only one who the infection has passed over, because to taint her mind would be to compromise the integrity of the facility, and thus everyone and everything inside it.>>3600180>will disconnecting her from the station kill her?Yes.>>3600189>If we just open the doors and leave, everything else gets out too.Bella offers that you could close it behind you.
We should try to find another way first.Maybe Ace has collected the last wooden puzzle piece for us. To cold storage!
Don't end her poor life yet, lets go down and check out cold storage if we can.
show her the green wood stuff, ask her what it is? and where the last bit of it could possibly be? im voting NO for killing her, it will only lead to a bad ending
Guys stop! dont kill her!Think about it, we've gotten to this point before? It seems like we SHOULD kill her.So why did we fail the last 3 times? WE PROBABLY DID KILL HER!
How did Ruby and Tom survive for a year with so little mutation? Both were clean before this thing started and all.
>>3600217If we can open the door, I'm pretty sure everyone else can too. I don't think "closing it behind us" will work.
I agree, ask her HOW MANY TIMES SHE'S TOLD US THIS AND WHY WE HAVEN'T KILLED HER.
>>3600221Yes, ask her about the green wood thing.
>>3600222This. I can only imagine they tried that before.
>>3600217Apologise. Then cut her off.We need to get the lockdown off, or we can never get past this point. But we can't leave yet, either: After she's gone, try the console. Try to find a way to rid yourself of this accursed disease and amnesia.
I love how this whole story has turned /tg/'s nominally ruthless crowd into one that gives intense consideration to the consequences of their actions.
Inb4 Ace catches us.INDECISION '09!
>>3600222Haven't you heard, she's not infected, if she dies, she dies for real.
I don't think we should leave just yet.We need time to think about this, and we need to find that one last piece of green wood. We might find something important in the last locker. If it comes to it.. we'll have no choice.
>>3600217Tell her we need to finish some business in the facility first, then once that's done, promise we'll take her out with us so she can at least be buried under the open sky.
we're not killing bella, she can come with us when we get out. ask if she knows what's in the wood key symbol locker so we know if it's even worth going after
Ask Bella if this facility can self-destruct and if that would eliminate the infection.
>>3600217Ask, If we escape will we still be contaminated. Could we even have a life if we just escaped without finding a cure first?
>>3600247We won't have to leave yet. Bella's death will also release the console, and electrical maintenance. I'm sure we can do some stuff with them.
>>3600217>compromise the integrityWe have to destroy this place.
Ask Bella about our infection, wouldn't it spread to the rest of the world?
This is the only person we can really talk to, let's learn everything she knows before deciding what to do next.
After she's dead, we can't leave. But what we CAN do is to go out for a moment and watch the beautiful sunset together.
>>>3600222So why did we fail the last 3 times? WE PROBABLY DID KILL HER!And waht if the last 3 times we fail because we didn't have the guts to kill her?
She's lying. Whether she's been infected or not, this whole thing is a game to her. Check the notes. Killing her might work and it might not - maybe she never got any orders; maybe she simply likes to keep this place locked up tight to watch everyone squirm.However, I DO believe that she retains control of the security system. I also believe that killing her will keep everyone trapped forever.
Ask her if she wants to be infected, since it might mean being free of the machines.
>>3600251> Ask Bella if this facility can self-destruct and if that would eliminate the infection.Bella says there is no infection. The only disease here is the one the doctors made.Bella sees Ruby's hesitation and tells her that she left herself something. It's in the water cooler.
Ask Bella what we did wrongly before to cause the cycle to start over again.
>>3600217Ask if she knows anything about Ruby's third eye.
Ask her what she knows about the anomaly in the room where we originally met Tom.
to Mr.watercooler and then cold storage
>>3600286Head for the water cooler. Pick up whatever's there, bring it to Bella.
>>3600286TO THE WATER COOLER, THEN.
No. She's lying. In one way or the other, she is. Don't trust. DON'T TRUST. NO TRUST.
>>3600297This. Also, what the hell is up with the staff wings?
Ask what's the deal with #6.
>>3600298Seconded. Enough questions, let's go get that mystery item.
Ask bella what it is that brings us back, and can we give soem to her?
WATER COOLER. NOW. KNEW THAT BASTARD WAS HIDING SOMETHING.
>'Bella is the only one who the infection has passed over, because to taint her mind would be to compromise the integrity of the facility, and thus everyone and everything inside it.'...Chasm room. I think the integrity might already be Tainted. Just like Filbert, she thinks she's clean. Just like Filbert... she probably isn't.
ask bella if she will end the security override for the console and hatch in the next room? tell her we will try to help her leave if we can. if we can't help her, find a way to get out but maintain the lockdown. we have to get rid of the desease before we leave.maybe (discussion first) give bella the scaple and say that we may be able to help you leave here so don't kill yourself yet.first priority is to find a way to maintain the lockdown if she dies.second priority is to help her leave.third is cure the desiese.fourth is get out.if we: can't maintain the lockdown, can't cure the deseise, leave without curing ourselves EVERYONE IS FUCKED
>>3600298>>3600303>>3600305NO.This isn't fair, Bella says. She helped you, now you have to help her. This time you have to kill her, she says. You have to let her wake up from this bad dream.This time you have to make the right choice.
>>3600335Do it, then. Kill her. End her pain.
>>3600335Tranq time for now, we'll come back soon.
>>3600335Do not worry Bella.We will be back to end your suffering.We will succeed this time.We will escape.
>>3600335...Ask her why she told us about the water cooler item if she wants us to kill her before even going to fetch it.
>>3600335Ruby, try channelling a little of that cold-blooded killer and give the poor secretary what she wants. Borrow Tom's shovel.
>>3600335No. No. No. Go. Leave her, go to the watercooler. She's lying.
TOM: tranq her.
I say punch her, not kill her.
>>3600335i still say tranq her, watter cooler then killtell her it's poisonWe get the gift, she feels no pain we escape GOOD END
KILL BELLA. RUN LIKE HELL.Pray this shit don't end up hurting us.
>>3600335...Disconnect her from life support.Take her to the surface with us. She'll see one last sunset..
>>3600335Promise to kill her after we check the water cooler.
>>3600335>make the right choiceask what happened? why did we fail?
Check the stuff in the water cooler first, don't kill Bella.
>>3600335ask her if there is any other way out of this, can we share with her what has happened to us?
If you wanted to seal off a facility, it does seem odd to allow the lockdown to be lifted by killing the person charged with keeping it in place, who is immobile and directly next to the hatch.She wants to die, and offers information to give us justification for doing so. Kill her, the lockdown is removed, only then you open hatch to find they've filled the thing with concrete. Or there are others above charged with keeping the thing shut. With guns. But even so, she still gets her wish.If she's integral to the facility, then really it only makes things worse for us.
IF WE KILL HER THE ENTIRE PLANET IS FUCKED
Tell bella to take a chill pill. We havent killed anyone yet...well except for all those other times.
If we left ourselves something, it's probably important. If we knock Bella out, she at least won't hinder us while we see what it is.
>>3600335Tell, "Ok, we know what we must do and we are sorry"Then take out the tranquileser and the scalpueAsk "Is there anyone on the outside you'd like to leave a message for?"After her answer say "this is so you won't fell any pain" and go to inject her with the knifre ready to kill her once she is underOnce she is asleep leave the room leaving her alive
>>3600335Don't kill her, whatever happens. That'll just repeat the cycle, EVERYONE is infected no matter if they think themselves clean or not. Not until the door is open and either Tom or Ruby has already climbed out into the sunshine.Anethatise her if you must do something.
DO NOT TRANQ HER UNECESSARILY, SHE CAN EASILY KILL US IN ANY ROOM WHEN SHE WAKES UP AND TRY FOR DEATH AGAIN.
>>3600392And even if she didn't actively try to kill us, the sudden turn of lockdown back on could be pretty bad thing.KILL HER
This is Earth after we escape.
>>3600381No, the infection isn't an infection the pills they all took turned them, only by taking a pill are you infectedalso we can barracade the hell out of the door after leaving
>>3600346>>3600349>>3600358>>3600359>>3600364Tom injects the LIQUID TRANQUILIZER but Bella only becomes angry. She explains that the systems she's hooked up to have replaced most of her body functions and will easily keep her conscious against the tranquilizer.She goes on to say that Tom and Ruby do not want the person in charge of security to be against them.She has asked nicely, she has helped them come this far, but now she is putting her foot down. She will lock doors, activate traps, and seal rooms if they persist. This time, she says, she's not going to give them a choice. They have to end her life now.There is no other option.
tranq bella, leave for water cooler and try to find the last bit of wood for the locker to open it
>>3600407>red stuff growing all over the place>medical purposes>pillswat
The ENTIRE staff was put on the rations that contained Red's 'cure', which means Bella included. She's the same as Tom and Ruby, which means when she is killed, she'll come back healed, with mutations. Killing her would be a mistake.
>>3600407>also we can barracade the hell out of the door after leavingWE HAVE THE INFECTION TOO AND CAN NEVER DIE CAN'T YOU FUCKING READ YOU FUCKER *Rage*
Killing Bella will probably kill everyone.Ruby, Tom, Ace, Stitches, Patient 6, Filbert... the whole kaboodle.Ruby, say we will kill her if she wants... but only if she opens the hatch and lets out Tom first.
>>3600413Kill her.>>3600417She doesn't need pills or rations. She's on a life support.
DISCONNECT BELLA.TAKE OUT TO HAVE ONE MORE SUNSET.
>>3600413Reluctantly agree, pull life support and take her outside for one last sunset.
When you've cut her off, carry her outside to watch the sunset. You three can have a final gentle moment before one of dies and the other two descend back to hell.
Talk it out, talk it out! offer some sort of insurance.
Break the glass she so conveniently revealed for you? I'll bet you could swim to the surface. The life support would probably keep her alive.
>>3600413Well, we don't really have much of a choice now, do we?For someone whose experienced these memories for more than a year I don't think our negotiation will work.
>>3600413No, don't kill her. Fucking moody bitch. Just leave, go search the watercooler.
>>3600427>>3600428>>3600429>>3600432...Tom and Ruby seem to have no choice.Tom pulls the plunger back on the syringe and with great hesitation, injects the air into Bella's bloodstream.Tom apologizes quietly for not being able to save her.
>>3600415Cave Story reference lulz
>>3600413take this empty syringe. we may be able to save you. see a sunrise from outside here. don't kill yourself until we are sure you can't be saved. if we die you can still kill yourself.
>>3600437>>3600440Fuck you two.
>>3600442Go watch the sunset together. Take Bella with you if you can.
>>3600413Say "Sorry it was only so would not feel any pain"Then get the knife out and ask if she is ready.Then kill her
Should've sent ruby to the cooler and left tom with bella as insurance..
>>3600442Well, there was no way out from that. Now, can we open the hatch?
>>3600442>>3600444alas i was too late. farewell bella.
>>3600442In pace requisiat.
BAIBAI BELLA :'(
Shit, what have you guys done?There was a reason why we've refused the few times we've made it this far. Shit, we're fucked now.
>>3600442Ruby: Hug Tom for real now he needs it
Okay, stop spamming the thread with Bella eulogies.Obvious next step: either wait for the universe to collapse, or go to the water cooler.Stab Ace in the fucking eye if you see him.
>>3600461There was a reason: Cowardice.There was also an obvious consenquence: Not getting out.
She was such an hero, to give it all away...
the only person who's tried to help us.This will end well...
Well, open the hatch and flee... TO FREEDOM
>>3600437>Break the glass she so conveniently revealed for you? I'll bet you could swim to the surfaceNeither Tom nor Ruby knows how to swim.Tom does his best to disconnect Bella from her life support. She passes into unconsciousness.Moments later, Bella passes away.
>>3600475Just watch the sunset. Running away can wait.
Hug Tom. Wait for reality to break. Expect Ace to fuck some more shit up.
>>3600481Hug TomHead to water cooler
>>3600483>>3600481Actually, I think we need to move quickly.If her mind really was linked to the facility, then bad things could happen now that she's gone.
>>3600481She gets back up and resumes her operations in an eternal trap
>>3600481Try to operate the console and open the hatch. You can both cry when you're safe up there.
Escape The Metal Glen, and to freedom.Try to live happily with each other.You made it.
Don't escape yet. Go to the Water Cooler first and retrieve the item. Maybe it has some significance for Ruby.
-Get item from Water Cooler-Get the Hell Out-Block exit-From then on, wing it.
Return to security console; Try to bring up camera feeds; search for personnel files.
>>3600453>Now, can we open the hatch?Ruby and Tom return to the security room.It would seem Bella's death has also caused a minor systms/power shutdown. A blinking green light indicates the electrical maintenance hatch is open, however.
screw the gift, get the hell out before something comes and kills youbarracade the door, bella said there is no infection just what the docters made, i'll assume that only by taking the medication are you infected, thus we wont wreck the world by leavingwe can never die though, that's a cool plus
the truth? or freedom?will we save the others? or save ourselves?which will we choose?
>>3600481save Mr Water Cooler |= [
>>3600503Then head in boldly (but carefully). If you're quick, you may still catch that sunset.
>>3600508mr. watercooler will go out like the champion of neutrality he is.judging ever eternally from under the rubble.
>>3600503I meant the Hatch Of Getting The Fuck Out Of Here +15, but that's cool too. Lessee what we can do in the maintenance.
>>3600503Open the hatch, Remind yourself she said you've done the same thing several times, so the you that killed Tom had left something that makes you revert back to how you were.
>>3600503Let's got to the Water Cooler.
>>3600503Let's go see if we can find Stitches. And the water cooler.I think ending here would be lame anyway, even if it was a "good end."
>>3600503search maintenance hatch, find any obvious way of returning the power
Out of curiosity, is Tom still missing his eye?
>>3600511>I meant the Hatch Of Getting The Fuck Out Of Here +15It's still sealed. The lockdown was on the systems operated through the console, not the hatch itself. That still needs to be unlocked.>Lessee what we can do in the maintenanceRuby, with her GIRLISH FIGURE, is able to squeeze into the cramped maintenance tunnel.A handy BLINKING GREEN BUTTON illuminates itself from within.
>>3600528Well let's see where it leads.
>>3600528Better not fumble blindly. Push the button. Prepare for some horror that you will see when lights come back up.
>>3600528push da battan
>>3600531haha. Is that a pun of some kind?"Metal Glen: Medical Institute for the Blind"
its third eye time in the main room also push green button
>>3600528...I get the feeling that that isn't a light.
>>3600528don't push a big trap looking button with ruby still in there, use the caneshovel from the outside :D ;D
Can't we just.. leave this god forsaken place once and for all?
>>3600555Don't you even read? I'm starting to get seriously bored and annoyed telling you the same thing all over again.
>>3600531>>3600532Ruby crawls a short way into the dark tunnel and presses the glowing green button.
>>3600555Yes, let's just leave, despite the horrific, immortal monsters running around (including both of us), the fact that we don't remember shit and could potentially black out and become amnesiac again at any point, and the fact that there is still stuff to explore and mutilate.
>>3600558...This is the first time we have spoke, sir.
>>3600560It's someone's eye. It has to be.
Ruby presses the green button, and the power seems to come back on.[Animated!]
>>3600564But the millionth time someone has said the same thing and I've said it can't be done.You should read everything thoroughly, before asking stuff. Especially if that stuff is so goddamn obvious.
>>3600566Watch this one actually be a button. And this post changing it to actually being an eye. Or an eyebutton.

Back up quickly, have tom help pull ruby out.
>>3600605"Th- they... They're in guarantine." *Back away*
>>3600605"We're headed to cold storage to look for them."
>>3600605To people who don't see this: "SO, WHERE ARE THOSE SCISSORS?"Still working on it, and you're in the way. So if you could kindly move...
>>3600605Inform him that there were none in Filbert's room and we've been unable to locate any others.
>>3600605get out of there while telling the truth "They were locked away after the last time we gave them to you...we dont even know where they are"motion for tom to start bashing as soon as his head pokes out
>>3600605Ruby: "In the staff rooms."
>>3600605"Hey, what´s that behind you?" then run!
>>3600621I tried suggesting this for Filbert and it didn't take
>>3600605"I'll go get them for you, just wait a minute." THEN RUN LIKE HELL!
Be honest. Tell 6 what Bella told you and that you tried looking in Filbert's desk but didn't find any. Would definitely be a bad spot to lie to Mr. Four-Stumps if he can appear outta nowhere.
>>3600605give him the scalple
Tom helps pull Ruby back out by her feet as she tries in vain to stutter out a frantic explanation.Inside the hatch, they can hear something skittering closer.
Close the hatch?
>>3600635Run.Get towards the water cooler.There was a reason Nook got locked in the first place. Sticking around is definitely a BAD IDEA.
>>3600636can tom rack up TWO kills with an automated shutter!? LETS FIND OUT
Honesty is the best possibility here. Though mentioned as dangerous, 6 hasn't actually been agressive to us so far.Tell him we asked Bella but couldn't find any, and that we'll continue to look. Perhaps they're in cold Storage, if Ace has taken everything missing there?
>>3600635try and close the hatchcant? run like the god damned wind to storage, we'll get ace to fight him
>>3600635Tell 6 to relax, you're still looking for the scissors.
>>3600635I think, for now, after closing the hatch, we should probably vacate this area.Nook may have unnatural strength.Water cooler.
Close hatch, bar it shut with the caneshovel.
>>3600644>>3600647>>3600628Y'know, if we could safely remain around Nook, Weaver wouldn't've been so eager to invoke his oh-so-rarely-used railroading powers to get us out quickly.Water cooler.
>>3600662doh ho ho ho
.>>3600662i demand a first person view from toms POV
>>3600655>>3600651>>3600646>>3600636Tom jams the door closed with his BLUDGEONY CANESHOVEL. Something starts clawing against the other side, but surprisingly enough, the sturdy hatch seems to hold fast.
I think we need a new thread.
>>3600676Water cooler.>>3600677Ride it 'till the end!
Lets hope that that´s a "dead end hatch".
BEFORE we check the watercooler, use the console. Can we open the hatch now? Just so it's open in case we have to come running back.
>>3600677No, we don't need it. >>3600676Let's go to the cafeteria, to inspect the water cooler.
>>3600676If it seems to be holding, try to use the CONSOLE.More information is good.
>>3600682FUCK NO YOU RETARD! WE DO -NOT- WANT SIX ABLE TO GET OUTSIDE.
open surface hatch, go to watercooler, search a bit for final piece of wood
>>3600688He meant the other one. Duh.
>>3600682>BEFORE we check the watercooler, use the console. Can we open the hatch now?The console responds favorably. It looks like Bella was telling the truth.
>>3600696Try to get information about other people. First Tom, then Ruby.

The console is suddenly ruptured by a large fleshy growth bearing a gleaming yellow eye.It appears to be impeded by the bulky console, but the system has been damaged. An error message flashes onto the screen.
>>3600696So many things to do.View Map should be first, so we know where everything is.
>>3600720Get the fuck out of there, and go to the water cooler.
fuck, they're both dead..
>>3600720oh fucking piss, sod it, to the water cooler, nowish
>>3600720Well, you really don't want us to open the hatch yet do you?Let us flee then. To the water cooler.
>>3600720I hear running is good for you

Well that sucks.Also, no BSoD. :P
Great effing timing -_O*

I think we should find Ace. He'll be more interested in getting Nook back contained than chasing us.
>>3600720GODDAMMIT SIX WE'RE TRYING TO FIND YOUR SCISSORS...where's Ace when you need him?
>>3600740ffs we had to go past the WATER COOLER to even get here just cheak it already
>>3600740that place exploded
Tom and Ruby head down to the room with the water cooler.On the way down, they pass by Filbert, who is still unconscious where they left him. He appears to be breathing, however.
FFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFGODDAMN 6 YOU FUCKING BASTARD> RIGHT WHEN WE MIGHT HAVE LEARNED SOMETHING!6 MUST DIE.After we get some more weapons. We should kill him with scissors.
>>3600756TO THE FAN WITH HIM!
>>3600753no time for water coolers there is a train to catch toot toot

>>3600755Oh. Forgot about that. WE'RE FUCKED
>>3600756Kill him. He's dangerous, insane and evil. He was evil even when he was normal, for fuck's sake. This whole shit is his fault.
>>3600756aid his waking slightly then GTFOhopefully he stalls 6
>>3600756Throw Filbert at 6. They deserve each other's company.Also, check 6's room.

>>3600756leave him or drag him to the fans if that's possible
Ruby and Tom descend to the cafeteria room, passing through the upstairs thoroughfare on the way.Tom moves to take the top off the water cooler so they can look inside.
>>3600787Fuck that, don't touch him, drag the fans to him.
>>3600787>>3600762Stop saying fans, that's right out of 6's room and the doors are now unlocked

>>3600799HOUND vs RED
Stashed inside the cooler itself is an oddly-shaped shard of GREEN WOOD.Ruby adds the last piece and assembles the second GREEN STAFF.Should they head upstairs to the locker now, or should they check the nearby backup console first?
>>3600617>>3600808We must know.
>>3600808Both.They have walkie talkies. They can split up.
>>3600808Don't forget to apologize to the water cooler. We can't turn EVERYTHING against us here.
>>3600808Console, check console for DETAILED FACILITY MAP, CAMERAS, and DOCUMENTATION
>>3600808wasen't that room filled with debris? and before that someone had smashed the screen? I migth be mixing things up thou...
>>3600815No.Get the staff pieces and open up that last locker!
RUBY IS CONFUSED
>>3600826i too thought it FUCKING EXPLODEDim verry confused
>>3600808Console. It's closer, we may be able to figure out how to lock #6 somewhere, maybe even check where Ace and others are and generally make our way easier. Or we'll fuck things up...
>>3600832RUBY hurt herself in her confusion!Enemy FILBERT is fast asleep!>FIGHT>ITEM >PKMN>RUNAlso, console
>>3600837This is metal glen fooleverything that dies comes back to life...even rooms
>>3600825This motherfucker has the right idea. Getting a detailed map would be a goddamn bonus, we could check ahead to see if anything is in our way and we could try to find out more about what was going on if we use THE CONSOLE.
>>3600810>>3600811>>3600812>>3600813>>3600815>>3600817>>3600818>>3600819>>3600822>>3600825>>3600826>>3600827>>3600831>>3600832Just because the thread isn't bumping anymore doesn't mean you should spam it to hell. Good god, go easy.Early consensus was on console.It's a moot point anyway, since the console doesn't seem to have power. There's still a familiar symbol hanging above it.
>>3600851Even though it'll be out of date (LOL PHYSICS ROOM), it'll still be damn helpful
>>3600854>Just because the thread isn't bumping anymore doesn't mean you should spam it to hell. Good god, go easy.That was voting. It doesn't count.Ah well, locker then.
>>3600854well locker then as we don't have the clock pointer
>>3600854Strange symbol? I thought you said it was a picture of a happy fish?Does that correspond to the eye dial thing in any way?
>>3600854oh weaverWe thought he ment the usefull console, but it turns out it really did explode. here's a useless old one that we all forgot aboutgo locker
Why waste time with a bogus option?
>>3600854Inspect symbol.And don't forget the delete button, guys!
>>3600854Go downstairs, spin dial, check downstairs ro see if anything has changed.
>>3600854Take the symbol, then go to the locker!
>>3600872Because that's what we chose. And there is likely some way to restore power. Which we should do. Downstairs, remain armed, watch out for Dummy.
>>3600854oooh... THAT one... could we go have a check throu: DOLL ROOM THAT ROOM CUT IN HALF ROOM BEHIND Z-HATCH ROOM WHERE WE FOUGTH PLANT ZOMBIE I think I saw something with this symbol on way back
Hmmm, we need to find that dial for the clock in the dummie room...Well, let's go to the Lockers.
>>3600876>Go downstairs, spin dial, check downstairs ro see if anything has changed.The dial downstairs is missing its spinner, remember? It was gone last time they checked!Tom and Ruby head back upstairs, making the trek to the room directly above them, since they have no means to climb the hole in the ceiling.Ruby places the GREEN STAFF in the carved recesses on the locker's face.
>>3600890>I think I saw something with this symbol on way backIt was the clock thing. If we still had the dial, we could-ACE HAS THE DIAL! WE MUST GO TO THE COLD STORAGE!
>>3600854Look at the symbol with your third eye.
>>3600895Check on Stitches first, tranq at the ready.
The locker's door swings open, revealing a switch to match the one in the other locker they'd opened with the first GREEN STAFF.Ruby figures she might as well pull this switch, too.
>>3600895step back a bit and make sure that the locker with stitches in it is at least still sealed(yay, posting in my first ruby thread :3)
check on stiches. bang his locker and ask if he is ok. ask if he saw the group photo.
Oh god are we going to turn the machine on with stitches inside? What if it gives him superpowers!?
>>3600904Say "Hello, Stitches. You OK in there? We're sorry we had to do that. We really are."
>>3600915but what if it heals him!? WE'LL BE GODS! GODS I TELL YOU
>>3600915ether that or auto destuct time
>>3600915No.It will fix him properly. He will see the picture. HIS MEMORIES WILL RETURN AND HE WILL HELP RUBY AND TOM TO GET AWAY.
What's that on the right wall, next to the button? Is that a mirror? Has that been there the whole time? If so...I'd almost want to break it and see if there's stuff beyond it (like a hole/passage).
With both switches pulled, lockers 3 and 4 suddenly shift apart and pull aside to reveal a hidden door on the wall behind the giant machine.
>>3600919AND THEN WE CAN RESURRECT RED, TOO! WE CAN ALL BE FRIENDS AGAIN!
>>3600927Ready weapons, and go in.
>>3600927Ace will be elsewhere fixing Nook back. The room will be empty.Get inside. Pick up all the relevant items.
Enter Cold Storage.WITH CAUSION!
>>3600927Huh.Well check on Stitches through the vents quick first, then I guess we go in.
well thats it for me guys, have fun with Ace
>>3600899ignore this one
IT'S COLD IN THE COLD STORAGEHUG AND CUDDLE TO KEEP WARM
>>3600927don wooly hats and enter
>>3600930Tom and Ruby pass through the door. Into the mouth of madness.
Darn, I was gonna suggest "Carve pumpkin into staff shape, put in recess".
>>3600959SAN check.Then open the locker.Don't touch the fetus, don't touch the dummy. Leave the console for later.
>>3600959succumb to the madness
Check lockers, statue and ceiling dummy!
>>3600959don't you fucking dare open that third eye. runes everywhere.
>>3600959don't fucking use the eye... it'd probably make everyones' heads explode into jello
>>3600959THAT DOESN'T LOOK COLD AT ALLOPEN LOCKER
Take ACE'S MASK to see if there is anything on the inside, or a rebreather. It might be useful later.
>>3600959>>Do Not TouchOpen water filtration unit
well, lets get on with it, open the lockers first
Maybe... Maybe Ruby is USING THE THIRD EYE ALL ALONG, UNCONSCIOUSLY!Ask Tom if he sees the same she does.
The locker on the left appears to be sealed. The one on the right is bent and partially melted in places, and appears to be simply jammed shut. Not even Tom can force it open, and its hinges appear to have been messed with as well.Ruby rationalizes they must be the two missing lockers -- the ones from the room where she woke up.
I think ace might be working for the dark powers..just a hunch.
>>3600996Check Ace's mask. Investigate water filtration, but obey the warning and Do Not Touch.
>>3600981Oh holy fuck, Ace is under control by the EVIL FROM THE DEPTH.
So... the Evil Powers were controlling Ace all the time...Fuck the "Ace is just trying to do his job, he doesn't want to harm Ruby and Tom" theory.
>>3600996Oh Ruby you and your logic, this is no place for logicOpen water filtration unit
What I'd like to know is, what water?
>>3600987>Open water filtration unitTom and Ruby look inside the water filtration unit.Something inside looks back at them.
>>3600996Tom: Try to pry open lock. Come on, use that MANLY PHYSIQUE. Ruby: Don't go insane.
After recovering from the shock, recover the panel. Use in the dummy room to get the console working again.
Wear Ace's mask
>>3601018mother of god. try and talk to the poor thing, tell it we're going to help it get out of this dark room
This is the Emobird. The one crying about dark is his soul, the manifestation of his will.If he's still alive, you should put him out of his misery. He's clearly in pain - been like that for a while, it'd seem.
Check if he's a live..maybe help him out.
>>3601018Try to talk to him.
Try Ace's mask, there's got to be something about it for him to leave it around.. is he in one of the cells?
Collect ELF TEARS from WATER FILTRATION UNIT.Seems like the only logical thing to do.
>>3600959hello doll, so that's where you have been hiding
>>3601033>Say hello."It'sss... so dark...khh...iiill mmeee.."
>>3601018try and take one of the hooks and the dial... and ask the bird if it is alive.
>>3601052Obey. Let Emobird go.
>>3601052RUBY: Ask if he wants us to put him in the regeneration cells instead!TOM: remove stuffRuby: wear mask.
>>3601052Decline to kill him. Try to free him from the hooks.Collect the eye dial first, though.
>>3601052go ahead and kill it. not much else to do.
>>3601052I see a trend forming here.
>>3601052Do it, kill him.
>>3601052I really wish it wasn't so... but I think that emo bird and ace is the same person... damn, ace was so cool and now he has to go and be all emo about it... get dial from his chest
>>3601018Release Emobird from his pain!Then open the lockers.
>>3601052Tom: Scalpel EMOBIRD.
>>3601065I think Weaver is very subtly trying to tell us he wants to quit.
>>3601058>>3601060Tom grabs the EYE DIAL from the filtration unit. Ruby, already emotionally distraught after the incident with Bella, is confused. She doesn't know what to do with this individual who lies half-submerged in water.
>>3601077Free the Emobird, take him to the lockers.
Don't kill him, is useless, he's "infected" like the rest of us, remember?.Just take the disk ang get out.
I think we've killed enough people who reason with us..
take the hooks out of him and take him out of that room, maybe he'll have a change of heart if he's no longer in the room? if stitches has healed up fine we can put him in stitches old casket, if not we can .. mercy kill him ;_;
>>3601077Anything other than killing him - even getting him to regenerate - would be pure torture.
>>3601077Ask what happened to him.
irc voted nay on killing emobird
take a look at what doll is up to up there, tentacles comming out of his gut and all
>>3601093Then I suppose we should unhook him and put him into another locker.
>>3601087 well we could have SEDATED him, but NOOOooo.
Where the hell is Ace when you need him?
>>3601082>>3601084>>3601085>>3601086Ruby pleads with Tom. This one can still be saved, she says.Tom and Ruby carefully remove him from the three large hooks keeping him in the chamber. It's a rather painful process and his groans of pain only subside when Tom finally hauls him out of the cramped, flooded chamber.
It's official- this is now the longest thread in /tg/ history that has not been stickied.I also vote to heal the poor sucker.
>>3601077Use TRANQ on Emobird, UNHOOK him, get him into a LOCKER.
>>3601018Hi, Ace. Sorry about the whole crowbar/impalement thing.
>>3601106Check on Stitches after putting Emobird into a free closet. If he's fine and well (kinda doubt this), you can take the group photo and put it in Emobird's closet instead.
Take Ace's mask on the way out
>>3601106Ask what happened to him.
Take Ace's maskGet the fuck out.
A loud creaking sound catches the attention of Tom and Ruby.The locker in the back of the room has begun to open.
>>3601139Grab ACE'S MASKLook at his face.Lose 3d7 SAN
>>3601139Maybe he has an amnesia now too? He might be friendly.We should check. But be ready to run at any time.
>>3601139GET THAT MASK
Okay, let's skip the "take mask" part
>>3601139well, at least now we know that Emobird and Ace aren't the same person... and that we are almost certainly fucked. closing the entrance to the cold storage would be awesome right about now (with ruby and tom on the other side, of course)
Run. Open Stitches' locker on the way through. Hope Ace gets distracted.
>>3601139Quickly grab the mask before Ace can, then get out of the room!
>>3601139HOLY CRAP GET OUT NOW, DRAG EMOBIRD ALONG WITH YOU, MAYBE HE CAN DO HIS "IT'S SO DARK" THING TO THROW ACE OFFFUCK
>>3601139It's been said lots, but grab the damn mask quickly; because we've said it all along =/
You really should start a new thread. This one's getting near the end of the board.
>>3601142>>3601147>>3601128>>3601133Unfortunately, ACE has already taken his mask.
>>3601139YES WEAVER I LOVE YOU! I'm sorry for ever doubting Ace's awesomeness! also, run like FUCK!
> GET YE MASK!You can't get ye mask.
GRAB THAT FUCKING MASK
I would bet that his weak point is behind his mask.
>>3601163HOLY FUCKSHITS, GET THE FUCK OUTTA THERE!
>>3601163OH GODIA IA ACEFACE FTAGHN
>>3601163So he IS an evil chaos creature.No talking after all. Just run. Dump Emobird into one of the lockers, close the secret door, head to the dummy room with your panel.
We have gazed upon the visage of the Ender of Worlds.I do not think we shall punch out Cthulhu any time soon.Let us abscond quickly.
run outside, knock open stitches closet, close the two doors behind us, drag stitches useless ass out, dump emo bird in flee for downstairs and the opening of the surface hatch
rolled 6, 4, 5 = 15>>3601163ROLLING FOR SAN LOSS
>>3601190INSTANT FAILURE.THERE IS NO SAVING ROLL.
Ruby and Tom get the hell out of dodge, carrying the other prisoner with them.
>>3601204Well that settles itAce must die.
>>3601204Nice new evil symbol. Looking spazzy there, Ace.
>>3601163Run, and take Emobird with you. Then CLOSE the moving-locker-systementrance to Cold Storage behind you!
>>3601204Wait, why's his mask still on the table?
Just had a thought- it's not important at this point, but this explains why the sink was running blood.It's because this poor guy was hooked into and bleeding into the water filter.
>>3601217Won't help, it can obviously be opened from the inside.I move we free Stitches and take a stand. Kill that abomination.
Ask Emobird if he can use his powers of confusion on Ace.
>>3601221Yes, and it's also the reason because Tom and Ruby heard running water in the dark Emobird "summoned"
>>3601219>Wait, why's his mask still on the table?Artistic oversight.Tom and Ruby escape from Ace's lair in cold storage. They seal the area behind them, but knowing Ace, it won't hold him for long. Whatever they're going to do, they had better do it FAST. Ace is clearly on a mission and this facility will not be safe for them for very much longer. Tom's MANLY PHYSIQUE allows him to carry the prisoner with relative ease, but his move speed is still reduced. Perhaps things would move faster if he and Ruby split up.Remember, TIME IS OF THE ESSENCE! Go!
>>3601244Free Stitches and run to the Console!
>>3601244Get Stitches from his locker. We might need him later.
>>3601244Ruby: Move to the dummy room. Use the eye dial to activate the console, then use it to gain information.Tom: Uhh... Put Emobird into one of those lockers?
RESCUE THE SHIT OUT OF STITCHES.
Ruby, take the dial to the dummy room, turn it to the symbol that matches the backup security console.Tom, take the bird to the security console and wait for it to activate, then unlock the exit hatch.
>>3601253>Tom, take the bird to the security console and wait for it to activate, then unlock the exit hatch.Nook is still there, remember? It's not safe.I second (third, fourth, whatever) freeing Stitches. He may be better now.
>>3601252>>3601253BY YOUR POWERS COMBINED, I AM A CORRECT ANSWER!
>>3601244ruby goes downstairs to open surface hatch, tom deals with checking on stitches and putting emobird into a cabinet, as well as protecting him against attacks, hope to god ruby can get back in time before ace busts in
>>3601204Bugger, no scissors.Regardless; now we know Ace IS an ungodly eldritch abomination then if we do find a pair we take them right to 6.
>>3601249>>3601250It would appear that locker #5 is ALREADY OPEN.>>3601251>Put Emobird into one of those lockers?It could take days for the locker to have any kind of effect on the prisoner! Is that really what you'd want anyway?
>>3601266>It could take days for the locker to have any kind of effect on the prisoner! Is that really what you'd want anyway?I can't see what else we could do with him.Give us a hint, Weaver! You're the DM!
>>3601266stitches has already GTFO'd so lets do the same:RUBY: Go to Dummy roomTOM: Go to working console.
>>3601261No, the smaller backup console downstairs, not the one that got chestburstered by Nook.Shit. You're right. The main security room's the only way to get to the lobby and the escape hatch. FFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFF
>>3601266>It could take days for the locker to have any kind of effect on the prisoner!Clearly didn't take that long for Stitches. Or Ace.
fuck i dont know what to suggest then, tom would slow ruby down, i guess go up to the surface hatch and wait, Nook will probably be after ruby anyway
>>3601266Take the shortcut through the hole in the floor. If it's not too much of a jump.Ruby's the fastest, she needs to dash down to power the console.
>>3601266Tom: GTFO to WORKING CONSOLE, take EMOBIRD with you. We're gonna rescue the fuck outta that guy.
>>3601261Ace was holding 6 against his will, and still is.Right now, we could use all the allies against Ace we can get. Stitches is out and we've rescued Emobird; Maddie's probably a bit too gaseous and vaporised right now to help (or else she's regened as well and will play her part). So we need to set 6 free, and any other prisoners if we find them.THE FLOCK MUST WORK TOGTHER!
>>3601266Continue to carry Emobird with you, you can't leave someone who can be saved behind in this living hell.So do this >>3601253
SAVE EVERYONE YOU CAN! FORM THE X-MEN!
>>3601274>Give us a hint, Weaver!In the time it would take Tom to drag the weakened prisoner up to the exit, Ruby could probably reach both the dummy room and then the downstairs console. At least, she could if she took a shortcut...
>>3601291>At least, she could if she took a shortcut...That's it then. Ruby: JUMP! Tom: Take Emobird to the exit.(Also please don't refer to him as "Prisoner", Weaver. He's free now.)
>>3601291Then let us execute Operation GTFO!
>>3601291guess we follow advice... Tom start takin emobird up to exit, Ruby get down to Dummy Room and TURN THAT DIAL!
Ruby: jump down the hole.Tom: Do as the next spam wave instructs
and if by any chance filbert is up and running, tell him we're unlocking the exit and he can join us, that should give him cause to stfu and actually help us, LETS GO FOR THE BEST ENDING GUYS
>>3601291Ruby! Down the hole in the floor, make for the dummy room!
>>3601291> SCI InterfaceShit... we're fucked.
>>3601303Hell NOOOOOOOO!Filbert would escape AND SEAL THE HATCH AFTERWARDS! THEN IT WOULD BE IMPOSSIBLE TO ESCAPE.
>>3601303Or we tell him the evil's in Ace, and to cut it out of him.Probably won't do Filbert much good, but it'll buy time for the prisoner escape.
JUMP DOWN THE TUBE! THE ONE THAT LEADS STRAIGHT TO THE COUCH
RAILROA- wait, no, we asked for it.So, Ruby: jump down the hole, aim for the non-Euclidean gap. Tom: shuffle as quickly as possible to the exit hatch, and stab Ace in the eye - well, the tentacle that looks most like an eye - if he gets too close.
>>3601291Take the pipe down.
>>3601318there's a hole in the room we're standing in.
