week 4

Week 4

[Four weeks in and almost half the Champions' original numbers are gone. Eight people in the span of a month and, even with the Overseers seeming increase in empathy for the remaining Champions, there is no end in sight for the Champion Excellence Program.

And again at 7 am on Sunday the mechanical woman's voice chimes to awaken the remaining champions on Sunday morning. After the initial wake-up call the message tacked on:]

Congratulations, Champions! By surviving your third trial, you have unlocked the fourth floor of the ship. A new mini map has been added to your P.I.P.! To access the fourth floor please stand on the teleporter and select the floor you wish to be teleported to.

[And again the Champions are awakened they have regained one new memory from the ones they've lost. Starting again on Sunday, as well, Jamie and Bolton will be back to their usual office hours in their usual locations.]

Sunday Monday Tuesday Wednesday Thursday

[ooc: welcome to week 4, everyone! Check-in has begun and don't forget to submit your memory regains!]

[Just like commenting on the Obvious Place For A Body that was the trash compactor with Kurumi, Shadow gotta eyeball the incinerator with Ricky. Doesn't say anything at first, brow furrowed. (Earth to Shadow, come in...)]

That's just deliberate.

[At least they're in agreement.]

Why would we even need this?

[personal profile] damnfourthemerald 2017-03-06 07:28 pm (UTC)(link)
I suspected that the trash in the compactor would either have to be ejected or incinerated. This doesn't make sense in location or size for that function.

Seems it exists to be a reminder.
voltrounds: (B20F. Gold wings for the pilgrims)

[personal profile] voltrounds 2017-03-06 07:36 pm (UTC)(link)
Or to be another deathtrap.
damnfourthemerald: (Default)

[personal profile] damnfourthemerald 2017-03-06 08:04 pm (UTC)(link)
A reminder that there are plenty of creative ways to go, in that case. No one has been found dead in the trash yet, though there's been evidence now. I wonder if someone would find this too obvious.

Then again, if you stuff a body in there, you won't have much to work with.
voltrounds: (B16F. The pathless drifting sand)

[personal profile] voltrounds 2017-03-06 08:06 pm (UTC)(link)
Or rather, we won't. We'd have to hope for some other evidence to find out who did it.
damnfourthemerald: (Default)

[personal profile] damnfourthemerald 2017-03-06 08:13 pm (UTC)(link)
I'd considered messing with the door of the trash compactor, but I wasn't sure if that would violate a rule. Perhaps it's worth a try, with this.

Maybe we could trap the mechanism with... something to mark whoever used it.

[She's not saying glitter, but... she's thinking glitter.]
damnfourthemerald: (Default)

[personal profile] damnfourthemerald 2017-03-06 09:02 pm (UTC)(link)
[Is this because there's still a lil bit of glitter on his head-region, because that's not funny. (It's totally hilarious.)]

It would be difficult to set something like that up here without it being apparent. [Someone check Margulis' shit again and see how he did it.] And hopefully nobody thinks to use it for its supposedly intended purpose.
voltrounds: (B11F. A mysterious cerulean wood)

[personal profile] voltrounds 2017-03-06 09:18 pm (UTC)(link)
[No! ...well yes, but just being in Shadow's presence is enough of a reminder that she would have thought of it anyway.]

If they see it and that stops them from using it, that's even better. Anything that can act as a deterrent.
damnfourthemerald: (Default)

[personal profile] damnfourthemerald 2017-03-06 11:21 pm (UTC)(link)
Maybe put up traps around anything obvious... People seem to actually use the compactor, though. [Like, say, to deposit a 90lb bottle of lube. Understandable.] I don't know why anyone would reasonably use this, at least.
voltrounds: (B19F. An excursion into despair)

[personal profile] voltrounds 2017-03-07 01:51 am (UTC)(link)
Maybe if they just really like fire?

[...oh. That thing that happened on Friday.]
damnfourthemerald: (Default)

[personal profile] damnfourthemerald 2017-03-07 01:58 am (UTC)(link)
As far as we know, there's one fire-user left. I suppose unless something or someone ends up here, if there's fire used, we might know who was involved. [Hey, several people were on board the Lightning train last time.] Are there other rooms that could otherwise use trapping? Perhaps if we store the kitchen knives somewhere safer...
voltrounds: (B23F. Ghost town of granted dreams)

[personal profile] voltrounds 2017-03-07 02:07 am (UTC)(link)
I think we can probably assume we won't be seeing fire anywhere else, then.

[Because Lightning would never! ...and because now everyone would know it was her.]

I'm only just getting started on this floor.
damnfourthemerald: (Default)

[personal profile] damnfourthemerald 2017-03-07 02:16 am (UTC)(link)
Mm. Some might want to close the gym down for how often things seem to happen there. [It's...kind of a joke??] But apart from that, I suppose any other dangerous rooms might be on this floor.

[He turns and starts heading in the direction of the soon to be discovered bar and/or dance studio, gets a few paces, then awkwardly stops. Hmmmmm is he being overly rude or just overly distant?] Would you like company?
voltrounds: (B24F. Road of inner sorrow)

[personal profile] voltrounds 2017-03-07 02:18 am (UTC)(link)
[...oh. That other thing that happened in the gym the previous Friday.]

...I wouldn't mind.

[Hopefully she hasn't retreated too far into downer territory!]
damnfourthemerald: (Default)

[personal profile] damnfourthemerald 2017-03-07 03:29 am (UTC)(link)
[They can go down downer lane together! Those that get depression together...something something together? Give him a second to really take this in.]

...I apologize. If I've upset you.

[Bc she looks pretty bummed and she wasn't before ssssso he can put two and two together.] I shouldn't speculate on potential death traps. [Really not helping.]
voltrounds: (B05F. Staring down the roar)

[personal profile] voltrounds 2017-03-07 03:39 am (UTC)(link)
[Down downer... downest? She shakes her head.]

No, I'm fine. Let's find those deathtraps. It's better if we know about them early.
damnfourthemerald: (Default)

[personal profile] damnfourthemerald 2017-03-07 06:56 pm (UTC)(link)
[He inclines his head and continues down the hall. He sure is super chatty this morning. What other death traps await?

There doesn't seem to be anything death-trap-y about this here strange barren mirrored room. Except for that giant chandelier, though.]
We might mark the floor where that might fall.

...Is this some kind of fancy dining room without any tables? [??? what is it why is it]
voltrounds: (B15F. Lord of the celestial ocean)

[personal profile] voltrounds 2017-03-07 07:04 pm (UTC)(link)
[Ricky's making a note in her map/sketchbook already. But yeah, marking the floor might be good too.]


Hm. A place for holding formal events, maybe? Like a ballroom.
damnfourthemerald: (one step to calm the storm inside you)

[personal profile] damnfourthemerald 2017-03-07 07:21 pm (UTC)(link)
[You do your map-making layouting thing, Ricky, you do you!]

A ballroom... Like for dancing? [He peers at himself in one of the mirrors, frowning, and tries to rub a little more glitter lodged in his fur. It's gonna be stuck in there for a long time, buddy...] It's out of place on a station.
voltrounds: (B01F. The first hope-filled step)

[personal profile] voltrounds 2017-03-07 07:25 pm (UTC)(link)
Well, sometimes that's just what places call big open spaces for events... but actually, yes, this looks like it would be good for dancing.

[The unexpected fanciness makes sense now!]
damnfourthemerald: (Default)

[personal profile] damnfourthemerald 2017-03-07 08:52 pm (UTC)(link)
Even with the mirrors? The chandelier? I guess...over there could be like a little stage. The Benefactors definitely spared no expense in tacking pointless rooms on. Wonder how high it goes, what other nonsense we might find...
voltrounds: (B15F. Lord of the celestial ocean)

[personal profile] voltrounds 2017-03-07 09:05 pm (UTC)(link)
Maybe there's a theme. Like, there was some other space station where there were murders, and it had these types of rooms.

[Not that that explains why anyone would ever need a dedicated dodgeball room, but they haven't been there yet.]
damnfourthemerald: (Default)

[personal profile] damnfourthemerald 2017-03-07 09:23 pm (UTC)(link)
...I shudder to think that there's more than one of these, with the same setup and a group of twenty other Champions going through what we are.
