It is very dark here. Please suggest an action.

  • Pun-
    I mean HEADBUTT EVERYTHING
  • Turn on night vision goggles, admire self.
  • Turn on the lights, it's dark in here!
  • Reach for the gash above you.
  • Get up, open curtains
  • Are those pushable buttons over there?
2

Pun-

headbutt everything

Nan swings her head, but just hits the air.

Turn on night vision goggles, admire self.

Nan is not wearing night vision goggles!

  • Examine white light, a curtain is probably blocking it.
  • Are those buttons? Press them.
  • Open the window?
  • Hit your alarm clock. Time to get up.
3

Turn on the lights

Nan turns on the lights. The morning haze gets a little clearer.

Nan finds herself in her bedroom. This is not unexpected.

  • Don't bother covering your shame, nobody can see you.
  • what time is it?
  • call in sick at work, go spend the day at the arcade.
  • Change out of nighties in private.
    After all, you're no slut~
  • What time is it?
4

Nan doesn't want to get up. But there are things she has to do. She has a duty. An obligation to certain others. Her position is vital.

  • Turn off that godforsaken alarm.
    Better yet, hurl it at the wall. Fucking alarm waking us up from blissful slumber.
  • Engage in morning ritual. Press the snooze button and get analyze clothes for what to wear for today. Then realize your identity.
  • Use MOUNTAIN GOAT POWERS to hit the red things next to you.
  • What is your QUEST?
  • Well! You shouldn't keep them waiting, then.
5

What time is it?

It's 6:30 AM.

Engage in morning ritual

Nan guesses it's about time to get going.

  • Admire adorable horns.
  • ...What is our DUTY?
  • What is your FAVORITE COLOR?
  • Get dressed!
    Or shower first, if that's your thing
6

What is our DUTY?

Nan picks out some clothes for the day while reviewing her DUTY. She knows she is part of a vital link in a chain of many individuals, and in order to keep things running smoothly, and to prevent catastrophe, she and all the others must stay vigilant. Nan contemplates skipping her shower.

  • Nobody likes a smelly goat.
  • So you're a factory worker on an assembly line then.
  • What traits do you have? GIRLISH FIGURE? FIERCE ATTITUDE? SWIFT LEGS? SMART ALEC? MANLY PHYSIQUE?
  • What does this chain of individuals support? Are there lives on the line?
  • Hey, if no one will notice your stink, feel free <3
  • if your not going to take a shower at least wear a sweater or jacket to cover up the stink.
  • Don't do that unless you absolutely HAVE to.
    You'll feel gross all day.
7

Nan decides to take a quick shower after all.

What traits do you have? GIRLISH FIGURE? FIERCE ATTITUDE? SWIFT LEGS? SMART ALEC? MANLY PHYSIQUE?

Nan never really considered herself in terms of traits like that before. But if she had to choose one she'd probably be known for her ABILITY TO HUM SHOWTUNES. Actually come to think of it Nan isn't really sure what makes her special.

Maybe nothing.

  • You just haven't had a chance to discover what it is that makes you special yet. Don't worry, I'm sure you'll get that chance sooner than you think.
  • Are you depressed Nan? Hum a little to lift your spirits, that is what showers are for. For singing in.
  • You have cute little horns. That's something!
  • Well, you are sorta horny lookin'.
    That's enough for some people.
  • Why do I think of Arthur Dent...
  • Hum the Doctor Who theme.
8

Nan is dressed and ready to face the day.

  • Face the day like it was your last! Seize it in your hands and make it your own!
  • Overalls: Not sure if want.
    Also if this were Reaver, I'd expect fallingman.gif.
  • Carpe deim!
  • Well what are you waiting for?
    Face the FUCK out of that day!
  • I suggest daning a little jig. Good for the soul.
  • did you eat breakfast yet?
  • Very slowly, tell us where you work, and what you do.
    We need to know. Now.
9

Overalls: Not sure if want.

Overalls: Not sure if want.

Nan considers her attire. She was never fond of overalls, but she doesn't particularly care too much about how she works. As an electronics technician and repairman (repairwoman?) this is what's expected of her.

  • It's just work.
    Go in reasonable clothes.
    In this case, those are your overalls.
  • Well, let's get to work then.
10

Nan heads out. It's another fine day here in the Glen.

  • ? You just don't have the right accessories, Darlin'.
  • Are any of your co-workers up?
  • ...oh fuck.
  • Should probably go find your co-workers and scan your memory for any outstanding maintenance work that needs to be done.
    If you can't think of anything urgent, then go find your boss and get orders.
  • No, this place isn't underwater.
    This is somewhere different.
11

Nan heads outside and checks her mailbox. She keeps her work orders here and just lets them pile up until she gets around to them. It's sort of lazy, but then, so is Nan.

  • Metal Glen wasn't completely submerged, you know.
    Nan, I suggest you go over any strange events that you can think of. Making odd repairs, patching strange holes, anything. Seek your co-workers where you can, but for now, you should probably only find one confidant. And stay away from Red.
    Red is not nice.
  • Realize you have valuable skill as a repair woman. You're quite needed. Become a bit more fulfilled in your life.
  • did u get ur pay check?
  • BLASPHEMY.
    Red is the sexiest man alive.
    We should spy on him.
12

Metal Glen wasn't completely submerged, you know.

Nan, I suggest you go over any strange events that you can think of. Making odd repairs, patching strange holes, anything. Seek your co-workers where you can, but for now, you should probably only find one confidant. And stay away from Red.

Red is not nice.

Nan doesn't know anyone named Red.

did u get ur pay check?

Nan gets paid per job, she's not on a salary.

Nan goes through the jobs she still has piling up. She momentarily considers whether she should start catching up on backlogged orders, since that's the responsible thing to do, or if she should look for something more interesting in the newer jobs.

  • YOU
    YOU ARE THE KIND OF PERSON THAT HAS CAUSED ME TO BE SITTING IN A WOBBLY CHAIR SINCE THE START OF THE SEMESTER
    AND THE CHIPS IN THE MIRROR
    AND THE CLUNKING NOISE IN THE AIR CONDITIONER
    AND THE SQUEAKING HINGES
    A WORLD WHERE NO ONE REPAIRS ANYTHING HAS LEFT ME IN DESPAIR
  • Responsible is BORING.
    Let's find something fun.
  • May as well be responsible - but sort your jobs in order of importance. Stuff that's possibly life-threatening before anything else, obviously.
    Minor things like fixing some guy's chair () can be ignored until the big things are out of the way!
  • ...I need information. Please tell me more about... well, anything. The jobs, your surroundings, any CO-WORKERS that happen to not be around you.
  • Look for something more interesting.
  • chose one of the newer ones. the old customers are just going to bitch and whine about how late you are.

  • voting for responsibility
13

Nan shrugs and decides to just do some work in the order she got it. Responsibility has its advantages too. She heads off to grab her transportation to her first job.

14

Nan heads off to her first job, some sort of complication arising from a fusebox blowing. The owner of the business seems upset, his letter sounded urgent.

  • Start humming old 70s songs that only got popular during the 80s and 90s.
  • how long ago was the letter sent? he might have gotten another technitian to do it.
15

Start humming old 70s songs that only got popular during the 80s and 90s.

Nan can't think of any songs like that off the top of her head.

Nan arrives at the address on the work order.

  • Well... Go on in, I guess?
  • Get to work, make sure you still have the job to do if it's rather old, and apologize for the delay in getting to work on it.
  • looks like you forgot your toolbox.
  • Seriously. I expect great things of you Weaver.
  • Now you've done it.
    Incoming blood-spatter-brush in 5...
  • Get an ominous feeling about your immediate future that'll make you shrudder. Something bad is coming up...
  • Oops. Um right I was going to repost that:
    I dunno. I think Weaver's going to keep stringing us along and nothing strange will happen at all.
    I happen to find this hilarious.
16

Well... Go on in, I guess?

The door seems unlocked. Nan heads into the Arcade.

It is dark here. Hardly anything can be seen.

  • Examine the gaming systems.
  • Nan, are you telling us that you went into a building with a broken fusebox without a flashlight?
    Because that would be silly. :V
  • Looks like the repair job was for the lighting for this place. Are there any windows other than on the door? Darkness is rarely a good thing to have in abundance.
  • Plug in pacman and go for a highscore
  • Find the fusebox. How old is this work order anyway?
    ...I just realized we haven't seen a living person yet.
17

Examine the gaming systems.

There are a variety of arcade games here, none of them are turned on. Nan used to play these a lot when she was just a kid.

  • AAAHAHAHAHAHAHEHEHEHOHOHO!
    I get it.
  • Yell, just to see if there's anyone out there at all.
    "Hello?"
    No need for anyone to be scared if it can be avoided.
  • Pick up guns from the one on the end.
    Pose awesomely.
  • Yes, this!
  • Why would anybody be hanging out in an arcade with a power outage?
    Looks like this is gonna be just another job. Get ye flashlight, and then fix those fuses.
  • Call out and see if anyone is around.
  • ? very funny, weaver
18

Nan, are you telling us that you went into a building with a broken fusebox without a flashlight?

Nan, are you telling us that you went into a building with a broken fusebox without a flashlight?

Of course Nan has a flashlight.

Yell, just to see if there's anyone out there at all.

"Hello?"

Yell, just to see if there's anyone out there at all.

Nan calls out through the echoing arcade.

  • holy fuck, what's that
  • Direct your flashlight into the hallway and proceed to the source of the problem. Let's get this over with.
  • What's what?
19

Someone approaches from behind a row of arcade games, giving Nan a little start. The man introduces himself as the owner of the arcade. The place has power, he explains, but there's something seriously wrong with the fusebox and he can't get the place running, so he's losing profit.

He says the fusebox is in the basement and he'll gladly show Nan the way.

  • Put your full faith and trust in this man who was hiding until now. Do not expect him to do anything bad.
  • just kidding :V
    follow the stranger, nothing bad could possibly happen
  • This is suspicious, but the man deserves the benefit of doubt. Follow him, but be extremely wary for reasons you don't quite understand.
    I mean, you've done this kind of stuff countless times before, right? Why should this case be in any way different?
  • He's not a stranger. They've met countless times back when Nan was still a kid and a frequent customer of the arcade. Right?
  • Must be a new owner.
    The old owner probably isn't in the bloodsmeared basement, crawling around without his skin.
  • Well, lets get to fixin'!
    Also pretend to fix it by hitting it with a wrench and shouting 'SENTRY GOIN UP.' If the arcade owner doesn't get it, he is lame.
20

Put your full faith and trust in this man who was hiding until now. Do not expect him to do anything bad.

Nan follows the man to the back, where a dark stairway down leads to the basement. The owner tells her the fusebox is down there, damaged for whatever reason.

He's not a stranger. They've met countless times back when Nan was still a kid and a frequent customer of the arcade. Right?

Nan has never been to this particular arcade.

  • welp let's go! chop chop, hurry it up, we've got lots of customers waitin'
  • Shine your torch down the stairway.
    Offer for the man to lead and if he refuses, go down first instead.
    Also, ask his name?
  • Down into the depths of---
    Er.
    Down into the basement, anyway.
  • Alright, let's fix this place up.
    Make some small talk with the owner about old arcade machines on your way down.
  • inb4 METAL GLEN
    Even though it was at the ocean. MINDFUCK.
    Yeah anyway, head down there, flashlight flashing.
  • gonna guess the box is old, the arcade games probably are sucking more juice than it will allow..
21

Nan descends into the basement. The owner waits upstairs.

Alright, let's fix this place up.

Make some small talk with the owner about old arcade machines on your way down.

Nan is a little too shy for small-talk.

It's very dark down here in the basement.

  • Fix the fusebox and get some more light.
  • Oh dear.
    Angle flashlight down somewhat so as to see what is at your feet, there. Something's made quite a mess in here and it probably won't do you any good to step in it.
  • I would just like to restate my previous suggestion ()
    Except... look down for us first...
  • Hum a few lines from the Major-General's song.
    Use light to look at the room.
22

Fix the fusebox and get some more light.

This appears to be the fusebox. Also, Nan has only one flashlight.

  • You didn't angle the flashlight down?
    Well, I guess, since you're over at the fusebox, that means you didn't step in anything horrible, probably.
    Open 'er up, we got work to do!
  • It's just mold, guys, don't worry.
23

You didn't angle the flashlight down?

Well, I guess, since you're over at the fusebox, that means you didn't step in anything horrible, probably.

Open 'er up, we got work to do!

This looks pretty fairly straightforward. It looks like someone tried to fix it, but only made it worse. Still it shouldn't take long to fix.

  • Look around the basement with your flashlight before you fix the fuses.
  • Well, then, get fuse... box... ing.
    Man, Nan, I dunno how to actually do your job. That part's on you.
  • Try and think of any song that might have been made in the 70s but only got popular in the 80s and 90s, make it your duty once you leave this place to figure out what kind of songs these could be.
  • Nan.. How do you feel about romance?
24

It doesn't take long, but Nan puts the finishing touches on her repairs. She flips the switch, and the lights come on.

[animated]

  • That's mold, alright. What a mess. Get out of here, it's probably not healthy.
  • Man, this place could use some cleaning up.
    But that's not your job! :V
    So, uh, head on up, tell what's-his-name that the problem's solved, and then move on to job #2.
  • With a smile, tell the guy that the job is done.
    Ask if there is anything else he needs done.
  • Um, investigate the mold a bit, even though it's probably not healthy. Because you're a curious person.
  • Head back upstairs. Stoutly ignore the desire to check the mold, just let the store owner know that stuff is up and running now.
    And if you're feeling brave enough, maybe venture the suggestion that he should get that mold looked at.
25

That's mold, alright. What a mess. Get out of here, it's probably not healthy.

It looks more like just stains and dirt, but Nan doesn't know too much about mold anyway.

Nan heads upstairs and tells the owner the problem is fixed. It appears he already knows. He's wasted no time attracting a crowd. Something about a live arcade just brings in kids on a saturday morning. They'd never get up this early for school.

The owner seems very pleased, and does not hesitate in presenting Nan with her check for services rendered.

  • Now spend some money on the arcade machines!
  • This!
    You haven't played one since you were a kid yourself. Be nostalgic and spontaneous! See if you can break an old high score!
  • Good work.
    Feel proud and happy with yourself.
  • Smile warmly. Reminisce about childhood and the hours you spent on arcade machines, tell him that he should send you a message if he has any more problems, then get your stuff together and head off to your next job.
  • Next job. Gotta pay those bills.
26

This!

Now spend some money on the arcade machines!

Nan didn't bring any cash. She's just got the check!

The owner offers Nan some free pizza for a job well done.

  • Grab a bite. You've earned it.
  • eat it
    one bite.
  • Go for it.
    Pizza is awesome.
  • inb4 sleeping pills or some shit
  • Is it cheese or pepperoni?
    If it's pepperoni, then you might not like it, Nan - unless you're not opposed to meat or something.
27

Nan is off to her next job.

  • Ride dat bike, Nan! You should totally get one of those little bells for it if you don't already have one.
28

The next work order is a simple request to replace wiring for a few outlets. Luckily, Nan always carries plenty.

  • And now shit is going to finally get real. You'll see.
  • Biking while eating. THIS CAN ONLY END WELL.
    What is the next job like? Remember anything from the letter?
29

It's a bit of a ride, but it's still early morning when Nan arrives at the hotel requesting the work order.

  • Looks fancy. Let's go talk to the guy in charge and see where the problem is.
  • This may be slightly more interesting.
    I mean, look at that sun! So foreboding.
30

Looks fancy. Let's go talk to the guy in charge and see where the problem is.

Nan walks into the hotel. It seems very nice. There's soft but boring music playing in the lobby and a nice chandelier compliments the room.

  • Ring the bell.
31

Nan goes to ring the bell, but notices the little sign next to it.

  • Wait half an hour.
    Spend this time trying to remember the Major-General's song. Whatever you do, don't go exploring, because that would be rude.
  • See if you can find the source of the problem, while you're at it. Check the fuses.
32

Wait half an hour.

Whatever you do, don't go exploring

Nan sits down and starts to wait. This is very boring. Five minutes pass.

  • Don't wait under the chandelier! That's asking for it to fall.
  • Oh what are you doing!
    You can't just sit there for a half an hour!
    Nevermind manners, have a look around!
    Maybe you could find the problem and fix it before anyone even gets back!
    Haha they would be so impressed!
  • Leave a notice that you were there but there was no one to receive you and that they need to make a new appointment.
    Move on to next job.
  • Screw politeness! Let's have a look around!
  • Follow the wiring of the chandelier into the next room.
  • Shlick furiously.
33

Oh what are you doing!

You can't just sit there for a half an hour!

Nevermind manners, have a look around!

Maybe you could find the problem and fix it before anyone even gets back!

Maybe you could find the problem and fix it before anyone even gets back!

Nan reviews her work order. The east-facing outlet in room 117 needs to be replaced and rewired. It seems very straightforward.

  • Replace it. Then rewire the crap out of it.
  • If you fix it before they get back, they might not pay you. Because intruding, and what not.
    Just start singing at the top of your lungs. I suggest Happy Days.
  • Charge them for this waiting time.
  • Let's do it.
  • Go exploring for that room, but try not to wander off too much.
34

Replace it. Then rewire the crap out of it.

A simple outlet rewiring could be done before the concierge gets back. Nan heads off to find room 117, which is probably here on the first floor.

  • Leave a note, at least.
  • Does the chandelier have wiring strung through the air going to a closet? I can see why they need work done.
    Now, is this the first floor or the ground floor? Let's find a room and read the heck out if its number.
  • Huh, they attached the chandelier's power cord to an outlet in the janitor's closet? Weird.
35

Nan continues down the hall, past the elevator, and gets to the rooms. Luckily for her, they all seem to follow a predictable numeric system.

  • uhuhhhhhh
  • You should totally suggest they get that chandelier properly wired, if you've got the skills to do it and it'll fetch a good price.
  • We have a key to Room 117, right?
36

We have a key to Room 117, right?

Yeah, Nan grabbed one from the-

Whoop! Nan trips into one of the stands!

  • Grab the vase! It's totally going to be reduced from your payment if it breaks!
    And with your luck, it's probably chinese antique.
  • Use ninja reflexes to catch falling vase!
  • SHIIIIT!
    CATCH IT!
  • Let it fall. Fate has decreed it must die.
37

Nan isn't fast enough, and the vase is already out of reach. It shatters on the floor.

  • Pick up the pieces and continue on your way.
  • THIS REMINDS ME OF A PUZZLE
  • Curse loudly.
  • no one can ever know about this
    get the pieces
    dump them into a trashcan
    hope they don't have security cameras
  • Shiiiiiit.
    They are going to be so pissed.
    I don't suppose we could put it back together?
38

Shiiiiiit.

They are going to be so pissed.

I don't suppose we could put it back together?

Nan cleverly gathers the pieces and puts them back together as best as she can.

39

Nan finishes replacing the pieces. Hopefully no one will notice there is anything different.

  • It's just a vase, they are not going to be THAT pissed. Put the pieces in a bag and tell the manager what happened when he comes back.
  • That's uh...
    That's... great, Nan.
    Perfect. No one will ever know.
  • Go back to the janitor's closet and find something to put the pieces in. Maybe sweep up any small shards or dirt that got on the floor.
40

That's uh...

That's... great, Nan.

Perfect. No one will ever know.

Nan, satisfied with her work, continues down the hall to room 117.

  • TURN AROUND
    MEET THE GAZE OF THE CUTE BOY OVER THERE
41

TURN AROUND

MEET THE GAZE OF THE CUTE BOY OVER THERE

Nan turns around, but only catches a quick glimpse of the young man before he retreats into his room, closing the door fast.

  • Go outside the door and say "Hello?"
  • Just keep going, before he witnesses how you break another valuable part of the hotel.
  • Knock the door.
    You still have plenty of time to make friends.
  • Move along to 117.
42

Move along to 117.

Nan briefly considers knocking on the door of the stranger, but she's awfully shy. She wouldn't know what to say. She doesn't even know what she'd want to say.

She reaches room 117, and pulls out the key she took from behind the main desk.

  • Knock on the door~
  • Awww, okay. You can think something up later ~
43

Nan knocks, but there's no answer from the room.

  • Open it and head inside.
  • in we go.
44

Nan steps into room 117.

  • Pick up the candy from the pillow that's always there waiting for new inhabitants.
    Don't touch anything else. Start fixing the problem.
  • Check in the cabinet under the sink.
  • Find outlet. Fix the FUCK out of it.
45

Pick up the candy from the pillow that's always there waiting for new inhabitants.

Pick up the candy from the pillow that's always there waiting for new inhabitants.

There's no little mint on the pillow! What kind of crass establishment is this? If Nan wasn't already pretty full from pizza she'd be even more upset. Still, it would have helped get rid of pizzabreath.

  • Pizzabreath is sexy. Now let's get to work on that outlet. Keep an eye on the door every now and then. Don't know who may try to sneak up on you.
46

Now let's get to work on that outlet

Good thinking. But this reminds Nan of a puzzle: which outlet is in need of repairs? If she replaces the wiring on the wrong one, it'll be wasted time. And if she tries one to test it, and it's the one that needs repairs, incomplete wiring could cause an electrical fire!

Using all the information you have already, you should be able to solve this!

  • It's the East-facing outlet, silly!
47

It's the East-facing outlet, silly!

But which way is east?

  • Don't you have a multimeter or something that can test without actually putting a load on the socket? Did the work order change, is it for one outlet or multiple? Whatever, start with the East-facing one in here and then check it again.
  • How many outlets are there? I only see two, and they're both facing the same way, so neither of them can be "the" east-facing outlet.
  • Toward the back of the building.
  • I see two outlets, both facing one direction. Are there other outlets? If there's only one other outlet, that must be the correct one. If there's two, well... Uh...
  • Oh, of course. The sun was rising behind the hotel. It is currently to the right. The outlet that needs fixing should be on the wall to the left, opposite the bed.
  • NNG, you beat me!
  • I think this quest is a lot like that Creepy Wall thread we had on /tg/ a couple years back: players had been told it'd be a horror campaign and waited a long while for something to happen, but nothing ever did.
    Weaver's reputation and Nan's small role in Ruby Quest has lead us all to expect a horrifying mindfuck, but so far there's been nothing of such.
48

The sun was rising behind the hotel. It is currently to the right.

Nan considers that if the sun was rising behind the hotel, and she's been going further and further back in it, then she's been heading East. Therefore East must be to the right of this room. She moves the small stand and sure enough, there's another outlet on that wall.

Now for one final question. Did the order mean "east-facing" as in "on the West wall" (facing east?) or "on the East wall" (when facing east)?

  • If the outlet isn't working, the hotel staff may have hidden it behind the dresser beside the bed. Check behind the dresser
49

Check behind the dresser

There is another outlet here as well.

  • Flip coin.
  • Didnt you bring something you could use to test them?
  • the one beside the bed is probably the one to fix
  • That one looks funny. LOGICALLY it is the broken one.
  • It is obviously the one on the west wall (left). The order says the "east-facing socket" not the "socket seen when east-facing".
  • Test the outlet on the west wall. (To the left)
  • Become cynical, assume everyone other than you is incompetent, and work on the outlet on the eastern wall because they obviously meant that and gave you some half-assed incorrect description of the outlet's whereabouts.
  • Look at the outlet. Are there scorch marks?
50

That one looks funny. LOGICALLY it is the broken one.

Nan sees what appears to be scorch marks around the outlet and decides this must be the one. She gets to work replacing the wiring (wearing safety gloves of course!) and the job appears pretty straightforward after all.

  • Brace for impact.
  • Oh dear. This is awkward.
  • Although it's funny cause I was thinking about it andmakes a lot more senOH GOD THERE IS A GUdid he just come out of the shower/bath? Oh Nan, how did you not hear him bathing?
  • There is someone behind you. Don't freak out or look or anything, just apologize for the intrusion and proclaim you'll be done shortly after fixing the outlet.
  • Turn around and politely excuse yourself out of the room.
  • That explains the missing mint.
  • Introduce yourself, say you're here to, "Fix their outlets."
51

Nan turns around, but there's clearly nobody there.

  • Continue as if you don't notice.
  • Keep doing your work, then leave.
    This hotel is full of handsome shy men.
  • Oh. Well, carry on then.
52

Nan shrugs and continues her work. She wonders why she assumed anyone was there. Clearly the room is empty.

The socket is pretty much repaired. Nan puts the finishing touches on it and replaces the outlet cover.

  • She's fantasizing about the boy she saw earlier. He sure was good looking.
  • Lay on the bed and close your eyes.
  • Shove the cabinet back in place. Lock the door after you leave.
53

That didn't take long.

Shove the cabinet back in place.

Nan replaces the dresser.

Lay on the bed and close your eyes.

Nan relaxes after a job well done.

  • You can't do that! Wake up you silly Nan!
  • Practice your ABILITY TO HUM SHOWTUNES.
  • ...er... is he doing what I think he's doing?
  • Holding the towel with one hand?
  • Stretch yourself in a sexy manner.
54

Practice your ABILITY TO HUM SHOWTUNES.

Seeing as how it hasn't been 30 minutes yet, Nan decides to practice her showtune-humming. After all, she's gotta stand out somehow.

  • Open your eyes and act surprised.
  • Keep humming showtunes!
  • Maybe sing a little bit.
    Something kind of slow and melodic.
    Not too loud.
  • Ya know those back in 30 mins signs are not 100% accurate, what if he had already been gone for 20 mins? Go back to the desk.
  • OHGOSH
    SOMEONE'S IN HERE
    AND... naked~
55

Open your eyes and act surprised.

Nan acts surprised. For some reason.

  • Wh- where did he go?
    Investigate the bathroom.
  • Go into the bathroom. THIS SUGGESTION IN THE BACK OF YOUR MIND SUGGESTS SO.
  • What?
    But... naked guy...
    Huh.
    INVESTIGATE BATHROOM!
    NOTHING EMBARRASSING COULD POSSIBLY RESULT FROM THIS COURSE OF ACTION!
  • Make more faces as you do so, maybe an anger followed by joy.
56

Nan feels an odd urge to explore the bathroom. But at the same time, it's probably been about 30 minutes.

  • Get out of that room before someone catchs you sleeping there.
  • Was it Eastern outlet or outlets? The job order wasn't too clear. It's worth checking if the bathroom has one, wouldn't want to do an incomplete job.
  • Head back to get your payment. That's the priority: any carnal adventures with handsome men have to come later.
  • Investigate that water on the floor. There could be leaky pipes or something and you should let the management know. Start by following the water into the bathroom.
  • Look at water. Ask if anyone's there.
57

Was it Eastern outlet or outlets? The job order wasn't too clear. It's worth checking if the bathroom has one, wouldn't want to do an incomplete job.

Nan investigates the bathroom, but it only has outlets on the North wall.

  • Maybe there's one in the shower stall.
  • There could be a clue in the toilet
  • There might be one in the shower with a GFCI on it for things like shavers, and it would be a very bad idea to leave such an outlet in a broken unchecked state.
  • Maybe there's an outlet behind the shower curtain?
    That would be a serious danger, and all the more reason for you to check it out.
58

Maybe there's an outlet behind the shower curtain?

Maybe there's an outlet behind the shower curtain?

It's possible they have a specialty outlet installed in the shower itself. Nan checks.

But there's no outlet in the shower. That means no more work here.

  • Then just go back to the lobby to receive your well-earned paycheck.
  • All right then, time to get paid.
    And possibly mention a broken vase.
  • Go back to the reception desk and don't stop for any other inklings that there are mysterious men around when there obviously aren't, phantom water aside.
  • Pfft. She fell asleep, and the guy left. Hope he didn't complain about it.
59

All right then, time to get paid.

All right then, time to get paid.

Her job successfully complete, Nan heads back to the concierge's desk to pick up her fat check for easy work.

  • Note how someone fixed the vase. Wonder about it for a moment.
  • Didn't you break that vase?
60

Didn't you break that vase?

Nan makes a mental note to tell the staff about the vase.

61

The elevator chimes.

  • Wait for it. It's either your payer or some other handsom guy.
    You'll get either paid or laid. Win-win.
  • You might want to just hightail it back to the lobby. Chill out there for a bit.
  • That's the problem deary, you broke it. now it's fine.
62

Wait for it. It's either your payer or some other handsom guy.

Wait for it.

Nan waits for the elevator.

[animated]

  • Acquire waffle iron.
  • Examine the object in the elevator.
  • W ... what's that?
  • Investigate the object on the elevator floor. DON'T TARRY INSIDE IT. Just pick it up, and get back to reception.
    Muse about how this place must be haunted. Mystery men walking around and elevator moving by itself. Maybe those two guys you saw were actually one and the same...? Nah, that'd be stupid. You're far too mature to believe in ghost stories, are you?
63

Examine the object in the elevator.

It appears to be an alarm clock.

  • Neet, an alarm clock that doesn't need to be plugged in to work. Sure it's not set to the right time but let's take it.
  • Nan maybe you should consider getting the hell out of this place
  • That is... weird. And kinda creepy. Head back to the reception and start considering going back home without getting paid because this place is haunted.
  • Oh god oh god get out of there shit shit oh god oh fuck shit. You feel your flight instinct kicking in.
  • Most alarm clocks have a battery backup to keep them running if the power goes out. It's not that strange.
64

Neet, an alarm clock that doesn't need to be plugged in to work. Sure it's not set to the right time but let's take it.

Nan pockets the alarm clock and heads back to the concierge desk. There is still no sign of the concierge.

  • You should consider fixing the clock. Clocks typically only do that when they're broken, so you should fix it.
  • Ding the bell.
  • What is strange is for a clock to show 4:66. There's only 60 minutes in an hour.
    It must be a very BROKEN alarm clock with a battery. In an elevator. Yeah. Nothing weird about that.
  • Check the sign by the bell again. Is it any different?
65

Ding the bell.

Nan dings the bell and waits a moment. But there's no response.

  • Take the tranquilizers to go back to the normal hotel!
    it hurts it hurts it hurts it hurts
  • Time is money, write up a bill and leave it on the desk. Off to our next job.
66

The sign does not appear to be of any help.

  • You're not going to leave. Nope. Not until you get your rightful paycheck.
  • Put the key back?
    ...wait why was there a key available for room 117 when there was a guest already in it? Curiouser and curiouser.
  • Lift up bell and sign.
    Place clock on counter.
  • Why... why is there a hole in the sign? What did you do Nan?! Can't you learn to be more careful?
  • Pinch self.
