A couple of hours passed as the campers waited in the conference room. The most exciting thing that happened was that the two guards were swapped out with two new guards. Graveyard shift had taken over. It looked like the group was going to be sleeping in the conference room.
Ceiling material? Polycarbonate. Anything in the fridge? Coffee creamer and 3 Diet Cokes. What do the walls feels like? Plastic. Table and chairs wood or metal or what? Wood table, plastic/metal/material chairs. Flooring? Polycarbonate. Do the doors go into the walls like pocket doors or swing in/out like regular doors? What are they made of? Metal doors that swing like normal doors. Does that button just stick out from the wall or is there a switch-box plate or something that it comes out of? There is a metal plate, screwed in place with 4 screws.
Rick presses the button. The door opens like magic. The two guards look inside. They don’t ask if there is anything that you need. They just wait to see what you are going to do or say.
Bex shows him the injured arm, which does look pretty nasty, and asks for a first aid kit. The guards look at each other and one of them goes down the hall. The door is open for about 30 seconds, then closes.
Rick pushes the button again (I just know he would) and the door opens. The guard that left is back before the door closes again with a first aid kit and hands it to Rick. The door closes again. Rick pushes the button again (he’s like that) and then takes the first aid kit to the table.
Lynette checks behind the fridge and finds that they don’t dust well here. The floor under the table looks to be made of a single piece of clear plastic. There are keyboard sliding trays mounted under the table, one for each tray.
There is a vent with metal ducting bringing air into the room.
;;; There’s a basic catch-up.

ooc: sorry for no response yesterday…pulling 12+ hour days here at work right now….didn’t even have time to think yesterday.
I’ll inspect what I can trying to figure out what the stuff (walls/ceiling etc.) is made of…anything and everything to me will be a question. I’m pretty good with materials as is Rick so maybe we can figure out some idea of what the heck this stuff is. Otherwise I’m going to avoid as much as I can any coffee or liquid JIC there isa “taint” to it.

So nothing happened when loose cannon, um… I mean, Rick pushed the button?
Are there any ducts or air handling system openings in the room?
OOC: Ok, maybe you’re waiting for this: I will use Search and make the roll with a +3 modifier. Doesn’t look like there’s anything to keep me from doing a _very thorough job. Rolled a 22.

OOC: Alternatively, if folks would rather, I can use my Treat Injury skill to try and heal some hit points in the group. Preferences? We’re talking on the order of d4 hp back if it works and nada if it doesn’t. But I can keep trying if it fails. One successful healing per person per day.

OOC: the two guards were swapped out? Meaning that there were guards in the room with us, or we heard the changing of the guard through the door? What happened when Rick pushed that button?
John: I’d like some Treat Injury, myself…
I’m going to try to get comfortable on the floor, and fall asleep.

Nothing when the button is pushed. Well, I’ll start tapping around on the ceiling and walls and looking with the rest of the guys.

ok. Here’s what I learned when I actually searched:
“The walls become very obvious when you aren’t rushed past them at gunpoint. It’s nothing more than a clear polycarbonate wall. The mottled colors come from the earth on the other side of the plastic. “The table actually has computer monitors built into it at every seat with a keyboard and mouse mounted under the table for each monitor. A couple of the mice are way up against the back of the keyboard shelf as if they are never used or someone slammed the shelf back into place rather roughly. There is a computer under the table at the head. It’s off. The coffee maker is off but in a small cupboard under it is coffee, sugar, artificial sweeteners and there is a small fridge with cream and 3 Diet Cokes. Other than as a meeting place, it looks like very little business takes place in this room.”
So. After performing my search: 1) I Tend Injury on Brian (OOC DC=15 rolled a 6 on the first try, 15 on the 2nd try – Healed Brian 4 HP) 2) I point out the fact that there is a computer under the table, reach down and turn it on. (OOC: I have 2 ranks in Computer Use and a total of +4 on rolls. I think we should find the person with the best shot at cracking this puppy open and have everyone else with computer use chipping in by aiding the lead. Everyone helping makes a skill check with a DC of 10 and if they succeed, they add +2 to the lead person’s skill check but the DM can set a limit to the number of folks who can contribute to the effort.
Who’s with me?

;;; Sorry, for some reason Typepad did not notify me of the plethora of responses. I’ll catch up.

ooc: John I’m with ya! can I get soem first aid as well, prolly everyone that got hurt?
Posted by: mark | 03/11/2009 at 06:29 AM
ooc: I’m at work and not near by character sheets so not sure what my skills are. Why didn’t I find the computers when I was crawling around on the floor under the table Mr. DM? So when I get home, I’ll check my stats or Alan can do it but I only rolled a 4 on a D10 if that’s what I was supposed to roll.
I fiddle with the computers to see if I can access solitaire. If not, I put my feet up on the table, lean back in the chair and attempt to get a little shut eye.

;;; Yes, technically you would have found or also found the computer Lynette. I responded to John via email before I found the treasure trove of comments that had been hidden from me (in plain sight, had I looked but nevermind that).
All skill checks are done with d20 so you need to reroll.
