Section 4 - Testing Room

The Sensitive Equipment Testing Room is west of Bureau Basement Secret Section. It is indoors and forbidden. "A room with no windows, no cameras, no recording equipment, and barely any furniture." The Sensitive Equipment Testing Room contains a rock.

The initial appearance of the rock is "A [rock] sits in one corner of the room."

Before going from the Sensitive Equipment Testing Room:

if the player does not know brock-found:

say "[You] shouldn't leave here until [you] have some clue about what happened to Brock when he came in." instead;

if the rock is enclosed by the location and the rock is not enclosed by the player:

if Brock does not recollect getting-out-now:

say "[You] can't leave rock-Brock. That was the whole point of coming down here, right? The whole point of risking our freedom and all that extra time. So let's gel him." instead;

otherwise:

say "We can hardly leave Brock here." instead;

if Brock is in the location:

say "Brock is determined that we get the T-inserter tested before we leave, and it's probably faster to cooperate with him than to fight it out." instead.

Carry out putting gel on the rock when the player does not know brock-found:

now the player knows brock-found;

complete "Find Brock";

[Instead of putting gel on the rock when the player is in Sensitive Equipment Testing Room:

if the player knows brock-found:

say "No, don't gel him! Think. How would [you] smuggle him out? Only one of us came in. He's much more portable in rock form.";

otherwise:

complete "Find Brock";

assign "Return to yacht" at Sunning Deck;

say "[brock-found]You're right, that must be Brock. (B-removed himself when he heard someone coming down the corridor, maybe?) But bringing him back now is a terrible idea. How would [you] smuggle him out? Only one of us came in. He's much more portable in rock form." ]

Instead of putting gel on the rock when cold dilemma has ended and Sunning Deck is not visited:

say "Having two people to smuggle back to the yacht will just make this trip twice as hard to accomplish."

After printing the name of Brock while looking at the rock through the monocle:

complete "Find Brock";

say "[brock-found]";

[Sanity-check going from the Sensitive Equipment Testing Room:

if Restroom Trouble has happened:

continue the action;

if the player encloses a visible bureau-disallowed thing:

say "[You] came in with just a handful of things (apparently, anyhow), and [you] shouldn't be caught with lots of extras now. It would lead to explanations[if the player carries something bureau-allowed]. It's fine to have [the list of bureau-allowed things enclosed by the player], and our[otherwise]Our[end if] hair and clothing probably won't be closely searched, but [the list of visible bureau-disallowed things enclosed by the player] should probably be concealed." instead;

continue the action. ]

[Sanity-check wearing the pants when the location is Bureau Basement Secret Section:

say "This doesn't seem like a sufficiently private place to change our underclothing." instead.

Sanity-check taking off the pants when the location is Bureau Basement Secret Section:

say "This doesn't seem like a sufficiently private place to change our underclothing." instead.

Report wearing the pants:

say "[You] slip on the pants as underclothing. Without a strip search, no one will find them." instead.

Report taking off the pants:

say "[You] retrieve the pants." instead.

After printing the name of the pants while taking inventory:

if the pants are worn:

say " (worn as underwear)";

omit contents in listing;

otherwise:

make no decision. ]
