Fear and loathing wasn’t the only thing in the air in Millbrook 3 months ago. And, unfortunately, Callum had gotten himself caught up in the mix. Now he’s being interviewed by someone from the EPA, of all people.

:reporter: One of the questions on the list here asks if any of the other people in your apartment building had a tendency to leave their windows open. Do you think they did?
:callumnarrate: Well it was in the summer, but y’know, Maine. I don’t see any reason they’d open their windows to control the temperature. The heater and AC in the building always worked well.
:reporter: Alright.

Task as reporter: Continue interview.
Suggest more questions for Callum.

:callumnarrate: I looked out of the patio door again and saw someone next to the car, lying still with their arm up against the driver’s side door.

Looks like running out to the patio is no longer an option. What should Callum do?
No. 1030059 ID: 7a2420

Start pounding on doors and shouting about an emergency; see if anybody else is around. Also check the janitor's closet for...I dunno, anything that strikes you as useful. Inspect plants through windows, see if they look off.
No. 1030064 ID: 96c896

Trying to contact anyone left in the building is a good start. Then gathering supplies (gas mask? something to keep the particulates out, like a dustmask or a medical grade mask could work) to protect yourself, and finally... well, fire escape?

:callumnarratelook: I went down the halls on both floors just bashing on doors really. Yelling about calling the cops or something.
:reporter: Did anybody answer?
:callumnarrate: Nah. Not a single door opened.

:callumnarrate: It was bare. Bare as possible.
:callumnarratelook: Through the window the tree had spindly branches that were just sticks. No leaves. It was summer, there was no reason it should’ve been that way that early.
:callumnarrate: And the branches themselves… their position looked inorganic in a way. Like a 3rd grader was given modeling clay and told to make a tree. Not normal at all.
:reporter: And do you think it was caused by the material?
:callumnarrate: Probably. I think the tree was fine and green just a day before. I see no other reason for its sudden loss of leaves.
:callumnarrate: I think I cleared the entire 2nd floor, knocking on every door and yelling, before just sitting in the middle of the hallway with no clue of what to do.

:callumnarrate: There wasn’t much there. Just some gardening and carpentry tools.
:reporter: What all was there?
:callumnarratejoy: Do you expect me to remember all that was in a janitor’s closet after three months?
:reporter: Uhhh, no, not r-
:callumnarratejoy: Well I do, but yeah.
:reporter: Oh, alright.
:callumnarrate: There was a hammer, a pair of gardening gloves, a set of screwdrivers on the floor, a roll of wallpaper, some twine, and a broom propped up against the wall. At the time I wasn’t really considering stealing any of them, but I eventually came to the conclusion that it was probably life or death for me there.
:callumthinklook: Okay, one pocket, two hands.
:callumthinksquint: Fuck these sport pants and their lack of legitimate pockets.
:callumthink: Knew I should’ve borrowed those darn cargo shorts from Raymond.

Which three of the items in the room should Callum take? Not using all of the given space is an option, and might free up some space for quickly storing items later on.
No. 1030370 ID: 96c896

Twine, screwdriver, gloves.
...considering the material seems to dissolve organic material I suspect he's going to wind up wrapping his entire body in clothing.
No. 1030467 ID: 344f1d

gloves, twine, and the broom (just the handle if possible)
with that we can tie some food or a houseplant or something to the end of the broom and poke it outside
No. 1030469 ID: d1a880

Hammer, gloves, twine.
And let's wear the gloves so they don't take up space.
No. 1030528 ID: 27dcf8

Well, you could use the hammer and screwdrivers to bust open some doors, get some better equipment, clothes, etc. It's not polite, but like. Life or death. Also, you could check if somebody is dying in there. Though...I guess there's not a lot you can do. And might die, yourself. ...You don't have another set of pants, yourself? Or clothes in general?

Wallpaper might be useful for wrapping yourself in, to defend from...something. Dunno, though, seems like that might be clunkier and gap-filled than useful. Too bad you didn't find plastic wrap.

:callumnarrate: I took the twine and pocketed it, and held the screwdriver pack with the hammer in my hands.
:callumnarrate: Wore the gloves, too. They were quite bulky though, and made it hard to grasp things properly.

:callumnarrate: At this point I had a couple options: beating the shit out of some door locks to get into the rooms, testing what the outside’s effects were on things, trying to find a way out that didn’t involve the outside… Really anything.
:reporter: Uhhhh…
:reporter: Can you just tell me what you did?
:callumnarratelook: Oh. Right.

As Callum: Make a plan on what to do.
>Simple tasks are completely fine. You don’t have to play the long game if you don’t want to.
No. 1030828 ID: 4fe119

Hmm. If you think there's a possibility that there's access to e.g. a sewer or tunnel or something, open all the doors on the lower floor that you can, being careful of possibly toxic rooms.

If you can figure out a fairly quick method of getting them open, I guess you might as well check upstairs rooms, too, until you feel you have enough equipment.

Look for a landline, and a radio, and really any general tools.

Look also for potted plants to sacrifice to Science and Survival, by e.g. setting one near the door, opening it for a split second and running away, and observing what happens, how quickly/if it dies. If you can find another, and some garbage/plastic bags, try putting a plant in a bag and see if that protects it. Probably don't want to try this too many times, though, lest we foul our safe air. Depending on results and resources, when you eventually decide to try to go outside, wrap yourself in garbage bags, wear a towel to HOPEFULLY filter the air, and try not to stay outdoors too long.
No. 1030829 ID: 96c896

(I wonder if it's possible to die? Maybe we'll get a Sands of Time kind of thing where he goes "wait, that's not what happened" and we'll skip back to a safe spot in the story)
First thing's first, bash the door open of the guy you're friends with. Though you may also want to get a bandanna or something to breathe through from your clothes dresser.
No. 1030831 ID: 850144

Open doors with your tools, and find a bag or something to keep your stuff in.
Start with Eddie's room.

:callumnarratelook: I had gathered everything I found that was of remote use within a few minutes, including Eddie’s handgun, his baseball bat, a pack of batteries, a digital watch, a couple TV guides and gossip magazines, as well as his trusty, iconic jacket that he never wore.
:callumnarratelook: As well as the screwdriver, hammer, and gloves from before.
:callumnarrate: I also had one of his potted vegetable plants against the sliding door to the balcony, but it must’ve weighed a metric fuck-ton because I, for the life of me, literally, could not move it without using both of my hands.
:callumnarratelook: I put on the jacket and the watch, which noted that the time was 11:25 AM.

No. 1031366 ID: e3eaff

for jackets pocket take the gun and the hammer, pockets the screwdriver because tools are for getting into things, and take the baseball pat in your hands.

Search for where Eddie could've gone, and then start looking at the other rooms for anything. I think our primary goal is extra storage, utility tools, and then food.

The ground is being stripped of material and we so one corpse out there dead of an unknown death, it is a good idea to *not* let any fog get into the building in case there's a central HVAC unit.

If we do plan to escape however, we should see about taking the potted plant out of the planter and thrower but after we're finished in this building, so that we can have a better idea of how much time we might have exposed to the fog (I'm assuming the fog itself is dangerous and caustic, and not anything else).
No. 1031369 ID: 96c896

I don't see any reason to take a gun. It's more likely someone innocent will get shot with it than an attacker.

Jacket, hammer, screwdriver, batteries, watch if you don't have one already.

Try opening other rooms to find Eddie.
No. 1031435 ID: 4fe119

It's reasonable to leave science until we're about ready to leave (barring plan-changes due to said science) - look for a backpack or something
No. 1031511 ID: 7c0da2

c) Time to loot other rooms.

Let's keep the screwdriver and the hammer in the jacket pockets, and the batteries in the pant pockets.
I don't really see a use for the magazines, maybe check what's on TV today? Don't keep them, they're a waste of inventory space.
Leave the bat and the gun, there is no point to carrying weapons for now, we checked the building, we are alone. We can always come back for them before leaving. And firing a gun is gonna end with a destroyed window.
