You send in your phone bot.

The bandage setup makes this iteration of your drone lighter in general. It doesn't take you quite as long to climb the stairs this time, nor does it make as much noise.

You also have Fuse and Michelle head inside, and begin working on the locked door on the lower bridge. It doesn't take Fuse long to get the lock picked, and the door unlocked. Behind the door is a set of stairs leading... downward.

Your phone reaches the upper bridge. You don't hear anything from the man with the guns--you don't suspect he heard your robot approaching this time.

Let's be very careful here. Michelle and Fuse can make their way down I guess, very very carefully? >_> I suspect we may find a proper mushroom lab down there. Possibly.

I guess our little phone bot can, uh, make its way over stealthily to the control tower(?) with the broken window. Maybe. >_>a

And then scare the living daylights out of the guy by having our phone ring when within proximity, I dunno XD

Make some noise with bandage bot then separate the phone from the bandages. No need to show him everything we can do.

Make sure Fuse and Michelle are in the door and the door closed (locked, if it's a simple lock that can be unlocked easily from the inside) before beginning the call. I'm hoping this is an extremely low-tech operation but if the guy does have security/cameras, hopefully this'll distract him.

I was thinking we can approach the negotiation by claiming to be a nondescript group, investigating Save The Queen as more than just a recreational drug and possibly part of a greater scheme to give key figures in the upper-tiers an excuse to begin a campaign of extreme violence and destruction against the lower-tiers. Any information Tech Tramp (don't call him that) can provide in either the identification of those producing the drug or determining the whereabouts of said production place would be in the best interest of the lower-tiers and would, of course, be financially rewarded.

How agile is our phone bot? Could it climb under the catwalk to stay hidden?

He should be pretty dang agile. He IS made completely out of bandages, so as long as there's something for him to hold on to, he can probably climb or hang on to anything.

humming -Itsy Bitsy Spider- as my mental image of the cell phone bot moving reminds me of a spider.

It's adorable, yet horrifying! :D

Let's have it climb up to the window and peek inside perhaps?
