Choice Text and Results

Badge yourself in

You swipe your id and a small lens clicks open. Apparently this facility is old enough they still use retinal scans.

You lean forward and feel a strange tingle in your eye, but apparently you're not on the list.

Or, with Midgard Records cybereye:

You swipe your id and press your cybereye to the aperture. The scan seems to take forever, but the vault door slowly swings open.

(Go to the Records Vault)

Or, with your retinal pattern entered into Employee IDs:

You swipe your id and lean forward to scan your eyes. The invisible light makes your eye ache slightly, but the vault door slowly swings open.

(Go to the Records Vault)

Knock politely

You knock on the massive door. Unlike the booming you may have expected, there's only a faint rap.

You doubt anyone on the opposite side could have heard that, even if they had their ear pressed against the far side.

Or, after infecting 5 office workers with Implant Seed unopposed (?):

You knock on the massive door. Unlike the booming you may have expected, there's only a faint rap.

There's a faint scrabbling in the walls that seems to be stretching towards the door… whatever it is, it doesn't seem to quite get there.

Or, if Implant Seed has been used more(?):

You knock politely on the door. The walls around you hiss and whisper with movement, until there's a soft crackle and the door swings open.

You make your way through into the vault beyond.

(Go to the Records Vault)

Wait for it

You wait for a while, then wait longer. Whatever all is in that vault, it doesn't seem to be a high traffic area.

You've earned 3 XP in Will

Or, at high Records Office Alert (after evacuation order):

MidgardHeavy.jpg

The vault door slowly swings open, revealing a pair of guards. Both are wearing ostentatiously heavy armor concealing their bodies.

The one on the left looks unarmed, save perhaps for his massive gauntlets. But his compatriot is carrying a weapon that looks better suited for an armored vehicle out in the wilds beyond Metroplex… or a true war zone.

They haven't seen you yet, but it doesn't seem at all wise to attract their attention.

Rush forward

The unarmed guard crouches, getting ready to meet your body with his own. His compatriot stands slightly behind him, starting his weapon spinning with an audible whirr.

(Fight Midgard Heavy Guard (Unarmed) and Midgard Heavy Guard (Gatling))

And, if you win:

You burst through their line and find yourself within the vault itself.

(Go to the Records Vault)

Sneak past them

You slip forward, keeping to the shadows, but are caught against the wall. You have a moment to contemplate the sound of one guard's weapon spinning up as the other moves forward to tackle you.

(Fight Midgard Heavy Guard (Unarmed) and Midgard Heavy Guard (Gatling))

And, if you win:

You conceal the bodies behind the vault door and slip inside.

(Go to the Records Vault)

Or, with at least 13? stealth power (Have succeeded with 13, but failed with 14. Some additional condition?):

You slip behind the guards, staying to the shadows of the vault door. You're shocked that it worked, but keep your cheers down until you're in the vault proper.

(Go to the Records Vault)

Just walk through

You approach the door, but one guard immediately begins spinning up his gun while the other charges to close the distance with you.

(Fight Midgard Heavy Guard (Unarmed) and Midgard Heavy Guard (Gatling))

And, if you win:

anything???

(Go to the Records Vault)

In Containment Suit:

One of the guards spins up his gun. "I didn't hear a biohazard alarm, did you?"

The other shakes his head, then charges you.

(Fight Midgard Heavy Guard (Unarmed) and Midgard Heavy Guard (Gatling))

In Heavy Midgard Security disguise (regular security did not seem to work):

One of the guards grumbles "Break already? Lucky." You make your way through the door into the vault beyond.

(Go to the Records Vault)

Slip away

Despite that time you spent waiting, sometimes discretion is the better part of valor.

You've earned 2 XP in Will

Leave it alone

History

Before November 24th 2015 (while Oldtown was a work-in-progress), this was a noncombat encounter with the following text:

You find your way to the vault door, but it seems to be powered down for some reason. It'll probably be a while before you can get through it.
