There's construction at the apartment exits and they can't let anyone through, but at least it'll be finished by tomorrow.

"So you've never tried to escape or anything?" Mike asks.

"Oh, no I haven't. Not really interested." 17 says. "If you have more questions about the tower, you should ask my pal 19! He's very knowledgeable about this stuff."

Mike thanks him and checks on 9, who's pulling another zombie out of the stoma.

"Whatcha doing there slugger?"

"Building my undead army." 9 puffs. With great effort he lugs the new zombie, a man with no skin, out of the flesh wall.

"O-kay." Slightly very worrying. "Who are you planning to fight?"

"I dunno, the clown we saw that tried to stop us or whoever controls this place."

Mike sighs and turns to knock on door 19. A strange being dressed in a dapper suit with a giant white orb for a head answers. Mike can ask this stranger any questions about the tower and expect a verbal response.

Why is this tower here? And why do the rules seem so arbitrary?
No. 1025777 ID: 96c896

How many floors are there in the tower?
What is at the top of the tower?

>Why is this tower here?
19 shakes his head back and forth for a moment and a blue triangle floats to the surface of its spherical head.

“Hello there travelers. This tower is interdimensional demon storage, for the people and objects they pick up on their conquests.” says the triangle, a bit muffled behind the plastic.

>How many floors are there?
The little blue triangle spins for a moment. “More than one trillion, and new floors are added all the time. There is not an end to the tower since it is a powerful magical space. At some point subspaces loop back on themselves.”

>Arbitrary math rules? Why???
“I do not think that was always the case. Perhaps someone has changed the tower and is giving you a chance to escape.” the triangle suggests. “Demons are fickle creature.”
No. 1025812 ID: 629f2e

If we can leave, let's gather up as many people as we can (or at least all the peeps from the second and third floor, they were all pretty chill), get them to drink from the fountain, break a window and then break free!

Where is the cure to the Red Plague?

While Mike may be able to fix his memory by drinking from the fountain, he’s concerned whether he’ll still have the Red Plague and be contagious.

“Is there a way to get rid of the Red Plague?”

“There are two angels, one on this floor and one on the second. Either may be able to remove the demon curse, though they’re usually violent and must be defeated with force.” triangle says.
No. 1025816 ID: eedbeb
File 164688767107.png - (32.68KB , 500x500 , u175.png )

What should Mike do? He can drink from the fountain and restore his memory in addition to any of these choices.
A. Escape over the wall with Red Plague super strength
B. Stay in the tower and progress forward with his crew, an eternal journey
C. Get cured, then try to find a way over the wall
No. 1025820 ID: e51896

C. We're strong enough to take em.
No. 1025821 ID: 96c896

C. Sounds like 9 will want to keep going to try to confront whoever owns the tower, let him struggle against infinity. Also, we really should get this done for infected humans. Those who caught the plague, not those the demon(s) collected.

...the angel on the second floor was the triangle, huh? We've already subdued her so why don't we go ask her?
No. 1025822 ID: 96c896

Also yeah get some forgotten memories back.
No. 1025824 ID: 629f2e

C. Yeah, it's only right to cure your sickness before you leave, spare the rest of the world.
No. 1025828 ID: a2493c

hm, losing our superstrength for the ability to make plans for longer than a day. I wonder which will be chosen?

for my part I'm voting b, we find the angels first and beat their asses THEN we commit to C after some setup to escape. We have our workarounds, and it's not like the fountain is going anywhere.

Mike thanks ball-head and confers with his friends. Jennifer is eager to escape as well, but everyone else wants to stay. 6 and 7 don’t even want to drink from the fountain in case they’re killed and trapped in their rooms again.

“We’ll follow 9 up the tower, I think he has a plan.” 7 says.

Mike promises to give Oscar his and Jennifer’s keys before they escape. For now, they need to clear floor 4 before they can return to the fountain on floor 3 and the angel on floor 2.

Which door does he open next? The angel in 16 is dangerous, but doesn’t need to be fought to clear the floor. Mike can just sneak a quick peek and then shut the door.
No. 1025865 ID: 629f2e

Sneaky a peeky!
No. 1025868 ID: 96c896

Have a peek.

>Have a peek at 16
Mike pulls his key out with a swagger and unlocks room 16. He gently cracks open the door and peers inside.

There’s a stereotypical winged and many eyed angel who cracks a 180 degree angle with their wheel head when Mike opens the door and screams at him.

Mike closes the door. “Well! That’s that.”

Mike decides to move things along and opens 18 with Jennifer’s help.

“Uwahhhhh…I’m soooo horny.” says the rabbit girl inside.
No. 1025878 ID: 96c896

Hmm okay but before the sex let's see who's in room 20.
No. 1025888 ID: 460e5a

Tell the rabbit about the monster on room 4 you read about in your notes. Hes horny too, got two horns on his head.

“Hmm…Okay.” Mike says. The moment’s hesitation is all the excuse the universe needs before 9 sticks his head into frame.

“You want to have sex?” 9 asks the rabbit.

“God, yes please.”

9 swoops in to claim his prize and Mike slams the door shut and goes to room 20.

The combined Mike and Oscar dream team key effort reveals another normal apartment, where a nerdy looking man with glasses is typing at a computer.

“You good bro?”

The man yelps and slaps his arms over his three monitors.
No. 1025898 ID: 8a51ec

Probably wasn't looking at porn if he was typing on his keyboard, maybe some sort of instant messenger? Repeat the question.

“You playing a video game? Are ya winnin’?”

“Um, yes, I-I was doing fine.” the man stammers.

“You need anything? Want to leave your room or need a favor or something?”

The man gulps. “I’m doing fine, thanks for asking.”

That was easy! Mike has cleared floor 4, the people here seem mostly at peace with their lot in life.

“Who wants to fix their memory?” he asks the assembled group, including the rabbit who’s clinging to 9’s arm and giggling.

To his surprise, only Oscar and 9 volunteer.

Mike returns to floor 3, where the yelling of the trapped residents is still loud and painful. He hurries past them to room 13, which is fortunately unlocked.

How much does Mike drink from the fountain?
No. 1025916 ID: b00429

Only a spoonful.
No. 1025929 ID: 629f2e

Take enough that you remember everything that has happened in the past few days. You probably don't want to remember countless days of repetitive life, but at least remember the chain of events that's lead you to this fountain.
No. 1025932 ID: e51896

maybe try to drink enough to remember how you got sent here in the storage in the first place
No. 1025937 ID: eedbeb
File 164702369743.png - (26.89KB , 500x500 , u185.png )

Mike takes a delicate sip, maybe a spoonful worth of water. Memories bloom into his mind about the past few days.

“We had sex?” he asks Jennifer, greatly surprised.

“We did. I left myself a code note about it.”

Wow. Mike pats himself on the back for that one.
No. 1025938 ID: eedbeb
File 164702370543.png - (31.62KB , 500x500 , u186.png )

He drinks a little more water, but only starts to remember endless days of monotonous boredom, so he stops.

9 chugs the water like a man trapped in a desert and shudders. “Damn. This sucks.”

“Yeah, why did you do that?”

“I’m trying to figure out how I ended up here in the first place.” 9 keeps drinking.

Mike waits patiently for 9 to finish, which takes an uncomfortable amount of fountain water and the inevitable backwash.

“Whoa. Ok.” 9 furrows his brow. “I think I’m half demon.”

“Good for you.”

“I’m going to find my father and kill him.” 9 declares.

“Have fun with that.”

Nothin’ to do except head to the triangle angle’s room on floor 2. Mike spots the 11 and 13 once he arrives and prepares himself for a fight.

“I need these guys’ keys.” 9 mutters in his ear.
No. 1025952 ID: 629f2e

You should be fine if you just let their friends out, that's all they want, right? So, promise them that you'll do so after you get yourselves cured by the angel on floor 2. Leave any keys you don't need and puppy friend here with them as proof, that you'll return.

When you return leave the rest of your keys and number 9 here with them. That way if unlocking the doors removes your clear condition, you'll be back on the 4th floor and can't be locked out.

You should probably let Oscar hold the keys though (he did say he wanted to stay). 9's a pretty big dick, and'll probably lock them all back in without a second thought. Have someone around to keep him in check.

>Make peace
Mike explains the cure situation and how 9 is going to continue up the tower.

“We can release your friends since we have a way to beat up the clown now. Once that’s done, you can go with 9 or give Oscar your keys.” Mike continues. Come to think of it, clown violence is a good way to avoid having to clear floors as well.

After some back and forth where Mike fetches everyone from the fourth floor to the second floor to support his claim, the duck and handsome man seem somewhat mollified.

Mike opens the room of blinding light once more, which makes 9 hiss and turn away. The triangle seems perfectly happy to blast him and Jennifer with a strong beam of angel power to get them to go away.

Mike and Jennifer are cured!

File 164703556615.png - (29.00KB , 500x500 , u190.png )

Mike entrusts his key to Oscar and joins Jennifer back on the fourth floor in the rabbit’s room, where he uses his trusty hammer to break the window. It’s a long drop to the ground and the wall is a couple meters away.

>The final problem!
How does Mike get to the wall and down safely when he no longer has powers?
No. 1025956 ID: fe19db

Use an aparment door or two as a bridge to cross, and get a bunch of bed mattresses from different rooms and drop them down from the wall so we can jump down and land on them softly to eacape
No. 1025957 ID: 629f2e

Make a daisy chain of blankets and bedsheets to safely lower you down using materials from various rooms. If you don't have enough, you could put some of the strongest people at the other end of the chain, just to give you a bit of extra length. First you, then Jennifer so that you'll be at the end to catch her if anything happens.

Once you're at the wall, this is where things get trickier. Not many notches you can hook something onto to rappel down. If it's high enough, you could try fashioning your blankets and sheets into a parachute. If there are trees on the other side, you could aim for the branches, using the blankets to cushion your soft fleshy bodies, and climb down from there. And if both of those seem impossible... Well, you could always ask they biblical angel for help. He can't leave the walls of course, that would spread the plague, but he COULD fly right up to them and hold your makeshift rope to help you get down. All in all, you got options.
No. 1025958 ID: 96c896

Make a big ass rope, swing over to the wall from a window, nail it to the wall to keep it in place, use the rope to put mattresses down--
Actually can't you just ask Archie to let you out since you're cured?
No. 1025975 ID: eedbeb
File 164704853632.png - (33.76KB , 500x500 , u192.png )

Oh, Mike knows exactly how this gets done. He’s going to make an elaborate chain of blankets and sheets to make a big rope, with counterweight so they can climb down the wall. There must be a big enough tree or branch to drag from 7’s ‘room’ to make a bridge so they can get to the wall in the first place.

Everyone is eager to help, even the zombies, and the tree cutting and rope building operation begins.
No. 1025976 ID: eedbeb
File 164704854507.png - (35.24KB , 500x500 , u193.png )

Mike returns to floor 1 to grab sheets, and in doing so runs into his old pal Archie sitting in the lobby.

“Hi Mike.” Archie says carefully.

“We found a cure.” Mike says proudly. “Me and Jennifer are leaving.”

“Really? How do you, er, know you’re really cured?”
No. 1025977 ID: eedbeb
File 164704855226.png - (32.14KB , 500x500 , u194.png )

This is a valid question.

“It’s magic stuff. I remember pinning you down with my powerful thighs, so my memory is working and I don’t have super strength or anything anymore.” It occurs to Mike that he’s vulnerable to death in this state, but he hopes Archie is a decent person and doesn’t try to kill him.

Archie taps his desk. “I’ll tell the people on the outside you’re coming out. You might be quarantined for a while but they won’t hurt you. Everyone wants a happy ending.”
No. 1025978 ID: eedbeb
File 164704855811.png - (37.05KB , 500x500 , u195.png )

Mike smiles. “Thanks Archie.”

The plan goes off without a hitch, though it’s frightening to walk along a tree trunk across a large gap. There’s a crew in suits like Archie’s waiting for them, and they slide down the rope into the next part of their journey.
