Encounter Conditions

Gotten past Elevator Security Checkpoint. Access is removed after rollover and needs to be unlocked again.

Initial Text

Despite the hustle and bustle of the lobby, people seem allergic to sharing elevators. Even if more than one person goes in, it'll be two or three already in the middle of a conversation.

The main bank of elevators have absurd lines, but one of the elevators in a smaller bank dings cheerfully as you approach.

Or, with Lobby Alarm?

People seem to have cleared away from the elevators for the time being, so it only takes a moment for one to arrive.

Or, with a call center ID/downtown manager ID:

A mechanical voice explains "your location is currently registered to the lobby. If this is in error, contact your manager."
