Silent Argument



Encounter Conditions


Initial Text

As you wander amid the office's cubicles, you occasionally see a pale hand peek over the cube walls. It's a simple matter to get closer without the hands' owners noticing you.

Two workers stand in the middle of a cubicle aisle, gesturing wildly at each other. It's a common enough scene from offices… at least the offices that show up on TV.

But, unlike those offices, both workers are completely silent. The silence is almost more unsettling than their blank faces and the vine-like shapes twitching beneath their suits.

Choice Text and Results

Break it up

As you reprimand the workers, they silently turn to face you. The two of them glance at each other after you've said your piece, then lunge to attack.

Or, if wearing the Office Worker outfit with Parasitic Vine:

You reprimand the workers. They hang their heads and head back into the cubicles along different paths.

Charge in

You hurl yourself into the fray, taking on all comers.

(Fight 2 Faceless Workers)

Share blotted documents

They take the blotted documents, which rapidly become a centerpiece of their strange argument. Hmmm… you're not actually sure if that helped or not, but at least they aren't paying you much attention.

(Lose 1 blotted document)

Leave them be


Thankfully, they're so tied up in their own business that they don't notice you slink away.
