You inform everyone that you discovered an eyeball.

You follow the trail to the door on the far right. The label to the right of the door says CAFETERIA. You have to hop a little to peer through the window, but you can faintly make out a few doors inside the cafeteria--you suspect that one of them might lead to the rest of the school.

Meanwhile, Fuse peeks into the other doors. He returns to you, keeping his voice low. "The other two doors just look like classrooms."

Though the power is out in this building, you sometimes hear the lights in the ceiling hum.

Oh boy. So the classrooms yield nothing? Alright, let's caaaarefully stealth our way across the cafeteria? Maybe?

I'm very confused right now. What's going onnnn

Also, like... is that a blood smear above the red box? >_> Is that red box one of those 'in case of emergency, break glass' things? Is there a missing axe?

Remember, everyone: The warehouse was tricked out with all kinds of traps and hidden enemies. Stay frosty. We should treat this entire place like it's rigged by Kevin McAlister (Home Alone, anyone?)

I'd say we tap any doorknobs with a non-conductor before we use them, never leave our back to something that could open, slide away, or be lifted (if we can help it), and use breaching protocol when moving through doors. I'm sure Michelle can feed us pointers on close-quarters scenarios.

The RPG player in me says to check the deadend classrooms as they are hopefully low-risk and might yield bountiful loot or a rooster key or something.

The strategist in me says they're traps or pointless and that we should go into the cafeteria so we can rejoin with the rest of the group at the front ASAP.

Middle-ground: check the classrooms for vents. Worse comes to worse we can use them as either an escape route or to close them and bottleneck anything trying to get at us.

Is the damaged wall-mounted clock still working and what time does it tell ? Is it consistent with our (functioning) clocks ?

A Trail of human blood leading to the cafeteria... I think I'll skip lunch today.

*Second checking that box, loot axe or fire extinguisher if present.

Bloody eye suggests it was removed from something, as eyes themselves don't actually have blood in them, it's all weird eye fluid, also would a school have a bio-printer...? Probably not.
