You take a casual scan of the room.

To the far left is a small table set up like a shrine. There are candles, a symbol drawn in... you're going to say paint or candle wax, and stuck to the wall are various printed pictures.

To the far right is a... a far more elaborate setup than Howler should have had access to. Like, this isn't even stealable, this is an array of high end equipment. You think you can get the system on without too much difficulty--though Howler probably protected it better than he did the computer upstairs.

In the center of the room is a mutated rat. You've seen a few like it before. It happens in the lower tiers. You're pretty sure it's dead.

Pretty sure.

... come to think of it, how the fuck did that rat even get in here. It's too big for the vents. Anyways, check the alter. Howler might have left the computer log in over there or something Oh and roast the rat just to be careful. Last thing we need is that thing to not be all that dead after all and coming to rip us apart in this small room.

Second the roasting, though might I suggest we do it at a safe distance, and uhm, wow, that thing is big enough to be a steed. Is that a thing people can do here? Do people ride around on massive mutated rats?

... wait a minute... is that a beak or is that rat missing it's head. Come to think of it that leg looks more like the flesh has been stripped off it.... has howley been eating that thing to combat his hunger after or during drug use?
