Agreed. I'd hate to have use my incredible self-defense skills to disarm and overpower any armed citizens due to a simple misunderstanding.

Unprecedentedc-R-ISIS hoped they could find an elevator somewhere. They painfully pick up the cooler (after again stashing the Injector inside), then follow the others through the door.

*Accepts thanks*

"I suggest we retreat a floor and head through the grey door instead. However we have a problem. We are on a mission from the computer itself to reach the roof of this building. The security team currently stopping us from doing so is also working at the computer's behalf. As citizen Sma notes, this is all a misunderstanding and can be easily resolved by some simple communications. Therefore, the team shall retreat through the grey door while one of us explains to the security force without putting our team at risk the situation and gains us access to the roof. As Hamme has volunteered for all communications tasks, obviously they are best suited for this job. Good luck, Citizen Ham!"

I whirl around on my heel and march back downstairs and through the gray door (assuming this is possible).

You are all summarily executed for--

Nevermind.

Since I know we've had a bit of a lull, another reminder in addition to the very relevant one that Loki posted, to describe what these doors look like:

I give my camcorder to Sou for safekeeping. "As ordered, friend! Please continue documenting the mission!"

I wait on floor 20 for the security team with my hands open and in plain sight, smiling as widely as I can.

I open the gray door to find the team.

"OK, I told them that Friend Computer said the commie mutant traitors were on floor 21 and they bought it! Now's our chance to get past them!"

FYI, Unprecedentedc is absolutely not sprinting up 3+ flights of stairs in his current state. Especially not while carrying that cooler. I'd allow Bone to do it, I guess, but he's also fading fast.

Unprecedentedc-R-ISIS slowly, agonizingly climbs each step, using the cooler to push themselves up, then picking up the cooler and raising it to the next step.

"Hurry, friends!"

I'm a bit surprised that the tired guys don't opt for the elevator, but I rush over to help Unprecedentedc by carrying his cooler for him. I also take my camcorder back from Sou-R-LAD.

I glance at Unprecedentedc-R-ISIS and sigh. I *suppose* I should help him.

"I can help you move this cooler up these stairs, so long as that doesn't break protocol."

EDIT: Ninja'd by Gerad. I can also help move the cooler up the stairs if need be, though.

Let's carry it together, if it's anything like most coolers that's significantly easier.

I do so. I expect Unprecedentedc is too tired to object.

I'll that say this will work short-term, but he's still not making it to the top of these stairs under his own power without taking a break.

Floors 20-28: yellow
Floor 29: unmarked/grey
Floors 30-35: green

That's about how far Unprecedentedc can make it without literally blacking out, I'll say.

Also, FYI, I have to dash, and I'm going to be AFK for 5 hours or so. Play nice!

When we reach the grey door:

"He looks really tired, guys. Maybe we should duck in here and give him a ride up to the top on the elevator?"

I think we should go into the nearest gray door, try to recover some strength, and then go up the elevator. Probably we all need some happiness shots in the meantime.

"As it appears we've successfully avoided the security team, I concur that a brief rest will best serve our mission. Let's enter through the floor 29 door until we're recovered."
