Otherwise, one of:


Hmmm, the owner of this desk left their ID here. That might come in handy.

You found: Midgard records ID


Hmmm. Wherever they went, one of them left a briefcase behind. It doesn't seem to have anything important in it, but it's a nice enough briefcase.

You found: light briefcase


You search through the desk, finding a strong-smelling flask hidden in the bottom desk drawer.

You found: office flask


Someone left a latte on their desk. It's not much, but it's something.

You found: lukewarm latte


You search through the desk, finding a stack of printed out memos. Really, who still prints these things?

Even the people in Southside have comms, surely the workers here can afford them too.

Look for life

You leave the abandoned stretch of cubes for somewhere that hopefully has a little more life.
