I do the same, assuming our leader fits and gets through.

If any of Bone-R-MAN-2's gear is -contaminated- with gore or whatever, I'll try to use the cleaning phaser on them. Followed by liberal use of disinfectant spray.

Default Too many cooks

You squeeze through the window and land on the cold basement floor in a heap. You look around to find yourself in a large kitchen. A number of Infrareds are bustling around preparing meals, and they are all very pointedly not looking in your direction.

I mean, he's not explicitly out, but he has been using quite a lot, so I'll agree that supplies are probably running low.

I confront one of the infrareds. "Hello, citizen, we are on a mission for noble friend computer! Is there a stairwell to the roof somewhere around here? Preferably a little-used one?"

I silently judge the Infrareds. Also if there are any that look like they do cleaning-type jobs, I ask for a disinfectant refill.

You find a door to the stairwell just past the elevator.

They are all still doing their very best job to pretend you're not there, which is becoming increasingly difficult as you all keep accosting them.

Also, since I can't recall if it's come up, I feel compelled to note that this building is very tall. Like, none of you counted, but it's at least 50 floors for sure.

Please let me know if anyone else has any plans for the basement before we move to the stairwell.

Call me "the stairmaster" because I'm ready to do this.

Default Stair into the Abyss

You open a grey door with a stair symbol on it to find yourself at the bottom of a very, very long set of stairs, and decide to begin trudging up them.

As you reach the first floor landing, you hear a commotion outside the door, which, you note, is painted bright red, and outlined in red lights besides. Continue Y/N?

(turtle, you've just started, but your arms are already signaling that they don't like where this is going.)

I guess ya'll could probably do with a refresher on what you're ostensibly doing here:

Additionally, A24 overlooks a crowded public square, so redistribution of this citizen's limbs is an outcome to be avoided, as it would be potentially demotivating to the citizenry. Your task is to please explain to the jumper that he should not jump, take him into safe custody and recover the equipment intact, then return here with both. You are also charged with having this citizen properly identify himself for registration, as there appears to be no trace of his identity in The Computer's records. Time is of the essence, so please proceed to R&D without delay to obtain your experimental equipment for this mission."
