You have your rat inspect the flora more closely.

The flowers look like, and smell like, yellow daisies. You don't notice anything odd about them, aside from the fact that they're here in the first place.

You describe the room to the others, and ask if there's a way to test the air.

"I do, in fact, have a device for testing air quality," Dr. Finch states. "Though, it may not account for contaminants extraterrestrial or scientifically engineered. It also requires hands to work it, which... could prove problematic if there is something in there."

For now you retrieve your rat, and bring it back into Bunker A. You think it might be a good idea to meet up with Grizwald, though you'll need to decide who all is going with you, and who is staying in the bunker.

I'm thinkin' of bringing Finch and Caius along for this one. Partly because I think it'd be best to take our resident genius along for the ride since we'll probably compare notes at some point, which may invariably lead to potential theorycrafting. Caius is there for added muscle in case more shit goes down and we have to deal with cultists or somethin'.

...Add to it, if worse comes to worse, I /really/ want to see him throw an arcade cabinet at a dude. That'd make my day.

Well were out, we should see about getting some protection from air contaminants.
Even if that area in Bunker D is safe, might find some use for the protection later.

I say take Finch and Caius to meet Griswald. Send Michelle and Fuse after a drone (Fuse is the resident tech after all).
Ask Baby Red about how much space it will need... and can it "Float/hover" or if it needs to sit on something.

It might also be able to stick itself to a wall, even if it can't float.

"No more on floor. On wall. Tall now."

I just wanna say, all these Baby Red lines from you guys are making me imagine the cutest, proudest child voice telling Mama Jane "Mom, look, I did it!"

I agree with this :)

....I wonder if Bunker D might be the best place to stay in, for all of them (except possibly Jury). After all, I haven't seen any method of air scrubbers/recyclers other than connecting to the outside world (like that tiny crack), which probably won't be able to replenish the amount of oxygen the party is using up quickly enough.

Erm, adding on to my previous post, try to have Jane go through each doorway, JUST to get a sense of where each Bunker is generally located - are they all connected (in which case Bunker D might be supplying the rest with oxygen) or separated?

Daisies in the bunker, huh... well, we could go ahead and explore it together with Dr. Finch later, but since we said we'd go catch up with Grizwald in the arcade, we might as well go do that now before he dashes off to do more awesome Grizwald things. -v- Gotta find out what he knows and see what we can do on our end, after all!

I actually want to vote that Michelle goes instead of Caius, mostly because Michelle has actually met Grizwald before. (Jane has dyed hair and her eyeball back now, but that hopefully won't throw Grizwald off too much -v-;;) Not that it's a problem if Caius goes particularly, though.

Btw MM, I have a question - is the lighter bit on Jane's shirt a pattern, or is she wearing a particularly shiny shirt? X3

To add to this: Grizwald is tinfoil-hat levels of paranoia. It's better to have MORE familiar faces meet him, not less.

Also as a side note loving the skirt. :3

re: Rufi: It's a pattern. Like a shoddily drawn star, but on the side of the shirt instead of the front.

Because she's a superstar! :D

i say just michelle mostly because all the boys have been either attacked with a bioweapon, set on fire or hit in the back of the head in the last 48 hours and could probably use some chill time, that and we get to spend some alone time with our favorite lady :P

I can see it now... We get back and they are all sitting around drinking beers which came from "Somewhere" and playing cards...

I think we're tied at three votes each between Michelle and Caius at the moment.

(Likely feat. Dr. Finch)

i’ll break the tie and say michelle just because ol’ grizwald would recognize her. he might also recognize caius, but likely as an elegance guard which could be not so great.
