No. 933904 ID: 4fd492

This quest looks very promising.

If you have not already partaken of the snacks, do so. Adventures, safe or not, simply cannot be undertaken on an empty stomach. Once you have gotten yon snack on, search around for a station attendant and find out what's afoot. Why is your train so late?
No. 933905 ID: 609feb

I think we just arrived in Cerebrum City and are waiting for a 'Scout Master?' to come pick us up?

Eat a Snack, so you have Energy enough to Find and definitely not harass a Security Guard.

Also, we are not lost, we know we are exactly where we are.
No. 933909 ID: c914a9

Oh boy, this is gonna be good. I love this art style so much!

Okay, so, SCIENCE was mentioned. I'm assuming that has to do with the adventure?

Either way, don't WAIT for the adventure to come to you. You should GO FIND the adventure! It's not just going to walk up to you any moment now! Go find it. SAFELY. Wherever it may be.

Also, any reason why it's called Cerebrum City? Maybe that will give us a clue to where the real adventure is?

First thing to learn about safety:
Safety is inversely proportional to the velocity of an object. Which relates to everything ever.
Nothing is absolutely safe. Get used to it.

Second thing to learn about safety:
The more blind faith you have in anything, the more it's gonna hurt when lack of maintenance causes an intricate and devastating malfunction.
KISS - Keep It Simple And Safe, (brought to you by NASA, the people who turned the Cold War into an expensive existential crisis)

Third thing to learn about safety:
Be efficient, be polite, have a plan to kill everybody you meet.

Ugh, cant be safe here. Gotta cell phone?
No. 933965 ID: c0641d


IMPORTANT: Make sure you never step too close to the edge of the platform.

STEP 1: If you have a phone, call your parent or legal guardian and update them on your current status.

STEP 2: If there's a snack machine, and you have the means to use it, do that; don't let yourself go hungry!

STEP 3: If there's a station attendant, talk to them and ascertain if there's a waiting room you can sleep in.

STEP 4: If there isn't an official safe place to stay nearby, but you know an address in the city you can get in contact with, see about securing public transportation there.

IMPORTANT: Even if these last two steps don't pan out, remember this helpful Don't Panic™ tip: The process of ascertaining your surroundings can potentially reveal new solutions you otherwise wouldn't have noticed!
No. 933971 ID: e95cec

In descending order of importance, according to viability:
1. Phone somebody.
2. Find attendant.
3. Do you know an address or phone number?
4. Cops will (theoretically) take care of you until your guardian can be found (and reprimanded).

guess we'll call the police or something. Is this considered an emergency enough to call 911?
No. 934130 ID: c0641d

If you find yourself lost in the city under hostile conditions, remember your BDSM:

Bearings: Are you truly lost? Hopefully not. Any good scout should at least be able to examine their surroundings and observe identifying landmarks such as street signs and government buildings. Train and bus stations might even provide a map of the immediate area.

Direction: Do you have a particular destination in mind? If you can ascertain how to move yourself to your ultimate goal, and it seems feasible to do either on foot or preferably with public transportation - Remember your travel money! - then you should see about reaching there under your own power. Don’t forget to use your umbrella.

Shelter: If you can’t reach your intended destination, your next priority should be protection from the elements and personal security. If you’re expecting somebody, you shouldn’t move too far - if you’re at a train station, for instance, see if there’s a sitting room connected off the platform; these are designed for hapless passengers caught out in the rain like yourself.

Mr. Neighborhood Officer: If even basic shelter that makes you feel safe can’t be found, try determining the location of a police kiosk or station. Even if it turns out you aren’t allowed to stay the night there, your friendly neighborhood officers should be able to help out with your predicament. (You can even stop your search if you find a patrol car. If an officer isn’t already present within, they’re likely in a nearby eatery.)

I hate that you managed to make that acronym make sense in that way.
No. 934137 ID: 977456

Rats make great insanity buffers when you need someone to talk to. Try talking to one! Ask for local landmarks and discuss your plans. They also provide emergency supplies! Just remember that your Strange Meat Pyramid needs a solid foundation. Ensure at least two of: Freshly harvested, cooked black, eject stomach contents.
No. 934142 ID: 94e3ab

Follow the instructions and say your name, your phone's number and that you're still waiting at [name of this station] at [this time,] Rosey never showed up to pick you up, you need a pickup soon and you love her (your mom.)

Alright, first, find shelter out of the rain, preferably still up on station platform. If this is a mass transit station then you'll want to stay up here to possibly take a train to nearer your mom's place. If you go to street level then you'd have to pay to get back up to the platform and you don't have any money, right?

Next, do you know where your mom's place is? What about her work place? Do you know the general layout of this city? If no to all those, then you'll need a phone book and a city map. Hopefully your mom is listed in there, either her home or her workplace. A phone book should be any phone booths or you could borrow one from a store owner. It may even have a city map printed in it as well. The station may have a city map too, or at least a transit map.

A phone book will also list the police station addresses and phone numbers as well as the city emergency and non-emergency numbers. This isn't a 911 level situation, so don't call that (yet.) One option would be calling the nearest police station or the police non-emergency number and explaining your situation and asking for help.

A second option, if you can't walk to your mom's place or use mass transit to get close enough to walk, is to call a taxi. It's not a good option 'cause I presume you don't have money and the cabbie will be expecting to be paid once you reach your destination and be angry if you don't. If you're lucky your mom will be there to pay. If not then the cabbie will either lock the car doors on you and trap you, chase you down, or sic the cops on you. For now record the number of a couple taxi companies for possible use later.
No. 934145 ID: 6a6c99

Honestly I think you'd want to call the police next, as long as they aren't corrupt you can count on them to at least get you out of the rain, and help you contact whomever. You might even get a meal outta it. Child Abandonment is a crime and it ain't safe for you to be out here alone.

How'd you get Sting's home number, anyway?
No. 934462 ID: c0641d

It doesn't sound like this is the sort of station to have an attendant. Be wary of strangers and continue calling the police: "Hello? I'm at {STATION NAME}. My name is {NAME} and I came on the {ETA} train. Someone was supposed to pick me up but it's really late now and it's really scary around where I am."

Other than this, as long as the un-ratlike being is posing a clear and present danger, you should be safe on the stairs; it works for the rats. Remember not to let any of them get too close in the meantime (and don't touch any surfaces here except for your soles, just to be safe). If they are a clear and present danger, you have a head start on them; remember not to just blindly run, though! Splatty Patty doesn't look where she's going and takes a dive off a raised walkway.
No. 934469 ID: 977456

Remember, Shelter! The rain will make you cold and then you will get sick and die. Go into the station. Summon your rodent minions to run with you and distract/confuse the thing on the stairs until you have passed it.

Unfortunately a glove makes for a bad ranged weapon, so direct fighting it is. Though there's a lot of potential to shocking puddles and staying back, it's the boss we need to confront and take down. So identifying the boss is the first step. After that we need to get the boss down to us, preferably with a few good shocks in to weaken them. Rose should be the final blow with the tranq.

Voltage isn't what's lethal in electricity. Someone with a pacemaker or heart condition would be in danger but otherwise it's amps that do damage.
No. 936737 ID: 0a7f21

Do you know how electricity works?

Current (measured in amps) is voltage divided by resistance. Human body is estimated to have about about 100000 ohms of resistance if you haven't broken the skin, and 100 mA of current is enough to be fatal to people. That 550 mA would be pretty much guaranteed fatal.

Your first deadly weapon! Do NOT shock yourself with it.
No. 936754 ID: 055cbc

That is a perfectly standard taser voltage. Tasers use 50,000 volts to arc and make initial contact, then drop to a less fatal level once the circuit is closed. Whether the glove does that by default remains to be seen.

Honestly it's not even a choice, despite a rocky start it's clear this woman is going to let you play with dangerous toys and do things other adults would balk at. You aren't dumb, you'll come out ok. Downplay it, say you found your ride they were just really, really, really, really really late.

We explain everything to the woman especially the rat problem we faced during our ti-

“Rats?” she interrupts us mid-sentence

“Never mind that’s not important right now, I’m with the CCPD and you girls look like you’ve had a rough night, There’s bandages and disinfectant in my car.” She says gesturing us to come with her.

“Lets go.” Rose softly urges us following the woman’s invitation.

"Well cadet, uhmm."

"Well Cadet Rose we all make mistakes, but be sure nothing like this ever happens again." The woman poorly disguising the malice in her voice.

In almost in instant the stern angry woman before us converts into a cheery almost mother-like figure in her demeanor as she switches her attention to us.

Both options seem enticing we haven't had any sleep all night or a real meal other than our snacks at the station.

Ok, so, we need a plan to handle mom. The first thing she should see upon arriving is her daughter, so sleep is going to have to wait a bit longer.

Sleep....Sleep sounds like the safe choice now. We tell Ms. Scarlet that we’d rather sleep then take our chances on some pill.
“If that’s what you want” (Makes my life a lot easier) She agrees, as she takes back the pill and stuffs it into one of her pockets.

Slowly she rises from our bedside letting out a slight grunt “I’ll go get Ms. Atkins, I doubt she got much sleep either. After that we can go grab some breakfast and head down to the Sick bay together.” She explains before exiting the room.

Now’s the time to act! Ignoring the obvious scolding going on outside of our room, we hide Rat-Thoney the best way any kid our age would. Just in time too soon after the door opens to reveal not only Ms. Scarlet but Rose as well. “Are you ready to g-” Ms. Scarlet says before pausing to give us a suspicious glare. (Is that? I...I Really don’t give a shit.) “Let's go” she stalely continues.

Before heading to the sick bay Ms. Scarlet takes us by the Galley to pick up some breakfast. It may have something to do with the fact that we haven’t eaten since yesterday, but the food tastes great despite the fact that it looks like its older than anyone at our table. Without drawing too much notice to ourselves we make sure to sneak a few morsels to our rodent companion.

Finally filled, Ms. Scarlet guides us over to the sick bay’s overly luxurious lobby. The abundance of prissy aromas and lounge like music make it seem more like a spa than a hospital’s waiting room. “I’m going to check you two in.” Ms. Scarlet says before making her way to the front counter.

Not too long after Rose awkwardly begins to ask. “Hey kid...since like last night… do you feel like...funny? Like kinda dif...oh never mind it’s silly.” (I’m just sleepy is all...keep dozing off....just sleepy.) “I’m gonna go sit down.” (I’m going to sit, I will Sit! Will I Sit? sit…) she moans before slowly shuffling over to the closest chair.

Oh well it probably wasn’t too important. Hopefully we can find something orrrrr someone to entertain ourselves for the time being. We probably Ms. Scarlet seems to have her hands tied dealing with the friendly yet seemingly incompetent receptionist.

We could go talk to Rose some more, or see what those two sciency looking ladies are talking about. Maybe see what’s up with that weird girl, or that big lady by the window. We'll probably have time to talk to at least 2 of them.

We approach her but she seems to not even notice us at first, in order to get her attention we greet her with a simple “Hi.”
“..oh..OH?! Uhm h-hi.” (I almost thought she was Molly, how long is she going to be in there for anyways?) the girl stammers.

"Wait, you saw a rat with a weird head you say?" The woman interrupts.

You went to check it out when you got knocked out. The girl showed up, woke you up, then all the shit with the rats happened. The girl beat the rats, then took the big-brained with her as a pet.

If you only take one piece of non-clothing equipment, take the fire extinguisher. You (sort of?) know what you'll need it for.

It is larger than the others, and your sneak skill automatically failed against it, therefore it must be a boss monster, thus it must have a weak point which may be hit for massive damage. Look for any distinctive markings that might indicate such.

>>957976 Support
based off of our limited knowledge of these monster's language, whenever one monster finishes talking to the second monster, the second monster tends to respond with the word "OK" most of the time.

So whenever a monster talks to our monster, have our monster always respond with "OK". It is absolutely foolproof, and it should lower suspicion. pure genius

We tell the doctor how frustrated we are with camp so far and demand that we see our mom.

“I'm sorry you feel that way sweetie but don’t worry, we’ll go and see her right after our chat” She coos as she pulls a piece of paper out of her coat.

The rats are Hazards? Nobody ever told you that - and she COULD HAVE, after the underground, 'member?

But why? You mean, they're pretty cuddly and weak. Sure, they bit and scratched you a bit in the underground, but once you showed them who's boss they calmed down and these have been cuddly angels since. You donno. They seem pretty nice when you treat them nice?

... did they try treating them nice?

And you... kind of didn't mean to break stuff! You just accidentally'd. Stuff breaks real easy around here for some reason. Ugh, and since when did you need glasses? You need glasses.

Annnyway... okay! You kind of don't want the rats 'xtermied, cuz' that sounds bad even if they did give you 'fluenza - xplains why you felt so crummy earlier - and you CAME here for summer camp anyway. So it's not like you got other plans?

... say, since she dudn't tell you in the first place. What causes Hazards 'n how d'you know what a Hazard is?
