Choice Text and Results

Search the desks

Sometimes, if Etheric:

You search through the desk, sending useless confidential papers swirling around you. The discarded secrets swirl into a coherent shape, reaching forward towards your offending eyes.

(Fight Pile of Secrets)

Otherwise, one of:


Hmmm, the owner of this desk left their ID here. That might come in handy.

You found: Midgard records ID


Hmmm. Wherever they went, one of them left a briefcase behind. It doesn't seem to have anything important in it, but it's a nice enough briefcase.

You found: light briefcase


You search through the desk, finding a strong-smelling flask hidden in the bottom desk drawer.

You found: office flask


Someone left a latte on their desk. It's not much, but it's something.

You found: lukewarm latte


You search through the desk, finding a stack of printed out memos. Really, who still prints these things?

Even the people in Southside have comms, surely the workers here can afford them too.

You found: 3-4 of retention memos, interoffice memo


You search through the desk, finding a stash of old sandwich wrappers. Ew.

You found: 2-4 sandwich wrappers

You've earned 1 XP in Strength

You've earned 1 XP in Will

Stop to meditate

You settle into an abandoned cube, making a nest for yourself among the paperwork. You're not sure how long you spent meditating, but you feel both refreshed and more in tune with the strange energy in your veins.

You regain ?-28-? hit points!

You learned a new Technique: Etch Secrets

Look for life

You leave the abandoned stretch of cubes for somewhere that hopefully has a little more life.
