I can understand the first statement. The second one I’m not so sure. I think if you want to trap a spirit, the first step to their “conditioning” is to break their spirit.
No. 942194 ID: e51896

Perhaps, but if we don't want to break a spirit while trapping it, you'll have to make someone who already is happy in freedom believe they'll be even happier trapped. Perhaps it's possible by getting them trapped into a recreational addiction to something for example. the addicting activity could makes them happy, but it traps their soul into the activity, not wanting to escape into freedom.

Look around at surroundings and assess the situation.

things to consider: the injured arm could of been from a struggle that was forgotten about after getting knock out cold and kidnapped, if that jogs any memories

Also, if there is no memory of wearing a red jumpsuit before, then some sicko just changed the previous clothing that were worn while sleeping.

might of been a rookie mistake for Scarlett to announce her profession of detective to Pink. It loses the chance to play dumb acting as a regular citizen turned prisoner, and do some undercover work keeping Pink's defenses lowered as Scarlett investigate. Now that Pink knows Scarlett's profession, Pink will probably be onto any kind of investigative tricks and act accordingly.

Though it's probably understandable, being a detective at a young age of 24, perhaps Scarlett is indeed a rookie?

Something to consider and keep only in mind: Pink doesn't know Scarlett's name, yet Scarlett's wallet is missing which would probably have Scarlett's identity in some way as most wallets have identification. If Scarlett's wallet has some form of identification, perhaps either Scarlett lost her wallet before getting captured, Pink has Scarlett's wallet and is pretending to not know Scarlett's real name or someone else who is working behind the scenes has the wallet instead of Pink, but for some reason hasn't told Pink Scarlett's real name which would be odd if Pink is leading this place... unless Pink isn't the leader? Again, only assumption, so just keep this in mind.

Anyway, pink male or female? I suppose it depends, is it a question of Pink's sex, or Pink's gender? there is a difference between the two (Sex being biological, while gender being how a person, or society identifies one as male or female). I get the vibe that Pink's biological sexual orientation is male (deduction due to Pink not having breasts, don't tell him that though in case he is indeed female), but Pink identifies as female gender, (mainly a transgender, a educated guess thinking this due to wearing pink and purple, not normal for males to wear by choice for the most part)

First, It might be wise to use the second marker to draw a small point on the map indicating where the security camera in this room is, and in the future make more points on the map where other security cameras in other rooms and halls will appear to gain a decent idea of where the cameras are monitoring and deduce some possible blind spots might be if needed. There is a feeling that this camera in this room won't be the only camera.

Also, notice on the map that there seems to be a large area without any doors to the right of the gift room, the right and bottom of the elevator room, below the scale room, above the barred window room, and the left of the hall between the scale and barred window room. It is most likely a giant mass of bricks, dirt or concrete... but who knows, it could also be a secret room. Something to consider the possibility of.

Once the security camera in this room is marked on the map, it is time to explore. Talking to the others is a great idea, though Pink said they are just waking up, and (s)he will be talking to them one by one, so it'll take a little while to actually speak to them. Best to just talk to them once you come across them when exploring. For now, enter the hall, and investigate for other security cameras, or other people in the vicinity.

Well, if he is panicking, it is important to stay with him so he doesn't suffer alone with his own thoughts, tell him to take deep slow breaths, and attempt to make simple small talk and short sentences to find interests he might have to ease his mind, and ask if the person needs anything from you. but avoid keeping the conversation lengthy as it could be a bit too overwhelming for him.

Do not tell him to calm down or relax, it sounds too demanding and it actually makes the anxiety worse. Also avoid telling him there is nothing to worry about and don't tell him he is acting like a fool overeating.

Well, as much as there is great interests in seeing if there is a hidden room or not, Mr. Blue said he was the third person awake, and if the second person who awoke didn't come out of any of the rooms in this hall, the second person could of come out of one of the rooms around the corner where Mr Blue is heading.

And seeing as Mr. Blue is very emotional and unpredictable right now, he might cause some trouble to the second person if the second person is there, and might hurt himself or the other person.

It might be best to quietly peek around the corner so Mr. Blue doesn't see Millie, and make sure Mister Blue doesn't cause any damage to himself or the other prisoner(s) or cause a mass hysteria among the group, which will possibly be very counter productive if happens.

Oh, seems that inspecting to see if there is a secret room is off limits at the moment, unless the elevator doors has something. Disappointing but expected.

So it seems the only rooms open is the room the the trees(?) and the fish(?) room. Guess heading towards the general direction of the fish room is recommended while continuing to mark cameras. (This whole operation must have cost a lot of money. Perhaps some very powerful people might be in charge of whatever this kidnapping is)

time to head into the hall then.

No. 943673 ID: e51896

Support. Keep it short and sweet. You only just met, so bombarding white with a lot of questions would be strange. Besides, there is still some scouting to do.

keep this in mind: perhaps this person was seen on the cruise ship, so that is where that feeling of deja vu is coming from? Logically speaking, magic isn't real, right? so seeing or glancing at him on the ship could have caused dreaming of him. Also, I suppose he decided to just wait by the assembly door for the meeting to start instead of looking around the facility. Lastly, is there no camera in this part of the hall? maybe a blind spot was found?

tell him your name is Millie, but also tell him to just call you Scarlet. shake his hand, let him know that you came across a man in a blue suit in a panic and it might be best to steer clear of him to give him space until he calms down.

Cameras are probably in the bushes or trees. see if one can be found in a bush or a tree

Speaking of trees, are there any decently sized sticks somewhere that can be taken and put into the inventory?

as far as talking to yellow goes, probably the best way to approach him is to sit somewhat relaxed on the bench that is next to him. Assuming he was on the cruise ship too, perhaps make a joking remark like saying 'some vacation, right?' to get a conversation started.

I think it is about time to get up off the bench and start heading towards Pink's assembly. We are not going with Rivrik

I think to conclude, we should let Rivrik know his plan is a good idea, but warn that according to one of the other prisoners, they used the elevator to try to escape, but found we are stuck in more ways than one, and there's some thoughts that with a situation this complex, this isn't just a one person operation and Pink probably isn't the only one running this show.

Whisper to Garvin and ask if he wants to talk. if he agrees, whisper to him about the park how initial investigation first time around no cameras were spotted, and a prisoner in yellow was spotted and might be a friend.

Show him your map if you want to show him the layout of the park, but make sure the map isn't facing the camera in this hall.

so there are half of the prisoners here. That means there are 8 prisoners, not 12 like the map made it out to be. So that means there are either 4 vacant rooms for possible future prisoners, or the 4 extra rooms are occupied by people who are not prisoners and working with Pink. Since one of those mysterious rooms is next to your red room, it might be best not to say anything suspicious in your room in case someone who might be working for Pink might hear in the cyan room

hmm, don't say anything. it might be good to keep silent as much as possible to see if someone else in the audience says anything. That way, if we plan on escaping in the future, we will know who might try to snitch on us to Pink. If Pink urges you for answers, suggest to Pink to check the surveillance footage. If Pink presses for more answers after, say that you last saw yellow in the park, but you're not sure where he is now, he could be anywhere. This statement is technically true. we don't need to tell Pink Yellow is trying to find a way to escape.

Consider that the cameras all over the place will make it difficult to lie to Pink.

With that in mind, mention that yellow was last seen chilling at the park area. Trying to convince him to come to the meeting without souring your first impressions with him had proved unsuccessful, so in the end you had to head to the assembly stage without him as time was running out. Other than that, nobody else was found.

hmm, lets be the second or third person to ask a question. Being the first to ask a question might make Pink think we are someone who takes initiative and leadership, which could be troublesome if we want to be discreet in any plans on escaping in the future. Asking first and showing initiative early on might make us someone Pink would keep a close eye on because of that.

I'm interested in knowing how Pink invaded the cruise ship and got everyone here, but like Pink said, you can learn a lot about a person by the questions and answers they give. Might be best to not ask direct questions like those as to not have Pink know too much about ourself. best to keep our cards hidden early on. It is most likely a question I feel that someone else in this assembly might bring up anyway.

Instead, With all the high-tech robots, knockout gas, weird rooms and cameras, perhaps ask how much money Pink put into this whole project.

Keep this only in mind, When pink talked about being a nobody but also being part of the elite rich and powerful, yet being dissapointed with the system, did Pink's facial expression seemed to break from that cheerful poker face Pink was giving just a little? Something in Pink's past must be effecting him/her in some way when Pink was talking about it. Maybe Pink used to be a servant, fighter, and/or slave to the rich and powerful if he/she said they were a nobody despite being in that group? Whatever it may be, perhaps Pink's past being part of that elite rich and powerful is something worth investigating if it is effecting Pink in some way. That knowledge may help us through what Pink's facility may throw at us or if we plan on escaping in the future.  

Well, well. A morale choice, guess being neutral is out of the question if Pink only accepts yes or no. But nothing a detective cant handle, undercover officers sometimes need to make difficult morale choices from time to time  

say "no" to getting an advantage and let the late people off with a warning, if only to help yellow out of trouble and maintain some trust with him.  
This time, do not be the last person to give an answer, as being last might not give us the chance to inspire others to take your choice.  
Also try not to be first. Answering "no" immediately might raise any suspicion Pink may have on us planning an escape with yellow, especially after Pink knows we met up with Yellow in the park.  

That said, try aiming to be the second person to answer "no" and let them off with a warning, since it is only the first day here.

Wake a sleepyhead up, and get to learn about someone.

so as far as I can tell, the prisoners who are asleep is orange, brown, yellow (Rivrik) and whatever color the 4th one is(either black, cyan, purple, dark green, or tan, most likely black based off of how the occupied rooms are arranged on the map is)

we got a basic to tiny idea of who the late prisoners are except for that 8th prisoner, orange is the scared one who didn't leave her room, Brown was the sleepy one, Rivrik is the one looking for an escape, and Black(?) is unkown

If it was our choice, we'd probably have the prisoners who are awake try to awaken the sleeping prisoners based off of personality or feelings. Like having Green wake up Orange (since Green said she was worried of Orange's well-being so maybe she can calm her) Blue wake up Brown (Brown's laziness seems to be an opposite to Blue's anxiety, so perhaps they can fix each other's faults if they get to know each other), White (Garvin) can wake up Yellow (Rivrik) (Both seem to be not interested in playing this game so it might be best for those two to get to know each other) leaving us we Black (so we can learn more about them).

We can try suggesting who to wake up who to the other inmates (don't say why though), but lets not get our hopes up if it doesn't work out that way. We're all strangers after all.

Whatever the case, whether we suggest the idea or not, lets call dibs on waking up Black(?) (so we can see what kind of person they are)

It feels somewhat like some kind of strange social science experiment studying a person's behavior when they are imprisoned in an unspecified location cut out from the outside world with complete strangers, but given the necessities and entertainment in attempt to make people feel they're living a normal life despite being trapped, maybe to see whether a person would desire to be free or desire to stay, with a point system to keep us motivated to participate or something.

either that, or some kind of apocalypse happened and we ended up in a strange fallout shelter.

So this will probably be a challenge to get through 60 days without gaining Stockholm Syndrome and fall in love with the place enough to not want to leave afterwards. What will also be a challenge is how the strangers will act in this facility over the course of the time here. This was a failed experiment previously after all according to Pink.

Wonder if at some point it is possible to go out and inspect that old burned out house, and then come back to the facility without getting too cold in the future.

I think to break the silence, it might be best to change the subject. Ask about how with the amount of rooms for the people here on the map, it was expected that there would be 12 people here (13 counting Pink) not 8 (9) as seen in this assembly. What is up with that? Will more people arrive?

The place where Scarlett suspects a secret room might be at, is around the area with the elevator, gift shop, law scale and barred windows icons is at, which is suspected to be a law or court room and a prison for misbehaved prisoners... (who are already prisoners in this weird experiment?) >>943149

If people's jobs are related to the places on the map such as someone good at cooking being assigned to the kitchen or someone skilled at health being sent to the first aid room, and if Scarlett wants to inspect for a secret room near the law and prison rooms, then the answer in some way should reflect that Scarlett's occupation is related to law, which is technically true given the occupation of detective before getting stuck here. Besides, Scarlett already told Pink that she was a detective when they first met.

Scarlett's answer should be that before being caught and sent here to this facility, she worked to help enforce the law as an officer, and as such, she has extensive knowledge of the laws that governs civilization, due process, and the judicial system.

don't get hopes up though. the jobs that are assigned might not even be any of the jobs on the map, but could be assigned to somewhere where those doors that seemingly lead to nowhere is at (the door leading north of the bedrooms, and the door across the gift shop)

(>>948533 note to self: try not to use your points at the rewards corner. The rewards corner could be a system in place to condition people to want to stay here after the two months have passed. Sure they might have things that seem fun, or helpful, but lets try to stay above that, and focus on trying to get back to the outside world)


what about the white marked location, more specifically, the room with what looks like a microphone south of the map?

and what about the two doors that doesn't seem to lead to any rooms on the map across the gift location and in the hall north of where our rooms are at?

(I'm also wondering if we should ask Garvin if he had hobbies, or attended any sort of clubs or activities when he was in school to help him get a job and not get stuck with something terrible, but it would be weird to just bring that up in the middle of the robots' presentation. Maybe later?)
