Choice Text and Results

Ask about the vault

The workers seem a little skittish at your question, glancing back and forth as though they share some psychic connection. Eventually one volunteers "you should talk to your boss, they'll let you know where everything is."

The rest seem satisfied that the issue is solved, returning to their empty conversation.

Or, after choosing "Just chat"? Not just "Just chat"ing. May be random chance or require multiple chats.

One of the workers seems to recognize you, apologizing for their earlier answer. Apparently the vault's entrance is hidden somewhere unlabeled.

One of the workers flatly claims it's a conspiracy theory, leading to a heated argument about where it might be. Even with just that, you can rule out a few places.

Just chat

You give a vague cover story to introduce yourself, saying you're from "Downtown" and nobody seems to question it further. You dance through a few banal introductions without issue.

Watch and listen

You listen to them chatting about houses, children, pets, favorite Cyberbowl teams, and recent movies. On the surface, it's all friendly enough, but there's a subtle jockying for dominance that makes you glad you don't have to work with these people.

You listen to them chatting about the new flavors at the coffee place next door. The conversation isn't helped by whatever marketing genius named the company "Lattes!" but you eventually catch on.

You've earned 3 XP in Perception


You listen to them chatting about the lot across the street and whether the office building will ever go up there. The general consensus is that the owners should have pulled funding already.

But it's pretty obvious nobody here has any better understanding of the costs involved than you do. Just not spouting your own uninformed opinion makes you feel smarter than these people.

Box them in

Deciding killing people is way easier than talking, you corner the group and prepare to make short work of them.

(Fight Office Worker (male), Office Worker (male), Office Worker (female))

Keep on walking

You walk past them. They don't even spare you a glance.
