> Alright, sniping positions, good idea.

I start to head over with my half of the team.

Tunnels, below Building 2, Point One, [REDACTED], right now

[L4-O-QKW-2   ] Eh... maybe let's just go up to the top floor and try to 
                sleep there. Might be safer up there at any rate.
[Speed-G-DOF-6] Alright, sniping positions, good idea.
So, Level 4, right? Isn't that the common room?

Though I'm sure there are sofas and things you could sleep on... unless you still wanted to drag up some mattresses

Corridor, Building 1, Point One, [REDACTED], right now

Regardless of that, though, Team One heads to the exit. I'm sure L4-O will have the situation sorted by the time they get there.

I start leading the way back up to Level 4.

It looks like L4-O is indeed heading for the common room. I guess the lure of an elevated position is greater than the lure of an actual bed

Though he has to admit that those sofas do look comfy, even after however long they've been left here.

"Well, I guess we can just get settled then..."

I look to see if there's enough resting places here for everyone.

"Wow, a break room! It's practically like I'm on a break, except I'm actually hard at work, looking for clones to survey!"

I find a good place to sit down in view of the vidscreen, and begin looking for any clones to survey in the break room while waiting for the show to start. I also have a better look at the usual break room trappings, noting anything that might be unusual about them.

Common room, Level 4, Building 2, Point One, [REDACTED], right now

While they wait for Speed-G and the rest of Team One -- oh, there they are now. Well, he can still have another look around and check that there are enough sofas for everyone. And indeed there are; no-one has to sleep on the floor!

The windows look to be in good shape, too.

Break room, Sublevel 5, Simulation Building 1, Happy Fun Vacation Zone, LOL Sector, 0h06m00s ago

Cyrus-R, who once again allows his voice to betray his thoughts, has a look around. Yeah, everything looks pretty normal in here... the chairs, the tsbles, the vidscreen that is helpfully set to Channel 3, the vendobot... you get the idea. It seems to match up with just about every other break room Cyrus-R has seen.

But back to that vidscreen, where he can see an HPD&MC studio not unlike the one his previous clone visited back in MVO Sector. There are even three presenters, though this time, they are all YELLOW, bearing the logos of LOL Sector Cloning Services (and Tech Services, of course). An unseen audience (or perhaps Friend Computer's Approved Applause Track) is giving as round of applause.

One, who wears a nametag identifying her as Vanessa-Y-LOL-4, holds up her hand for silence. "Thank you all for tuning in," she says. "And especially thank you to those who watched the entire ad roll... Friend Computer will be especially pleased with you.

"And as always, welcome to the ClonServ Lottery! I bet you can't wait to find out who won!"

"All in good time, citizens," another, who has a nametag that reads Will-Y-PDL, says. "First, we'd like to remind everyone that, while having extra clones is super convenient and super fun, thewy are not to be thrown away carelessly. As Friend Computer likes to remind us, our clones are precious. It is a citizen's duty to ensure that the clones of loyal citizens are preserved by every available means up to the security clearance of the citizen. Suggestions, praise, or other comments concerning this policy can be left at the HPD&MC Citizen Engagement Centre in the Productivity Zone."

"Okay, not that that's out of the way, why don't we get down to business?"

"Yes, let's!" the third -- a Sarah-Y-ZOZ -- replies enthusiastically. "Let's get the choosebot in here. Friend Computer, which choosebot will be using todaycycle?"

"I am pleased to announce," The Computer replies over the vidscreen, "that I have chosen Choosebot 4 todaycycle. For your convenience, it has been fitted with Vidscreen 7."

A catchy jingle plays, and a wheeled, jackobot-lyke bot (only a bit larger, and seemingly clutching a vidscreen in its four manipulators) appears on the screen, rolling in from one side. "Choosebot 4 reports," it says.

"Excellent!" Sarah-Y replies. "Please proceed with the draw."

"Very well," the bot answers. "Cross your digits, everyone!"

The vidscreen then comes on and, as the camera zooms in on it, starts streaming letters and numbers. "We begin, as always, with the Fourth Prize winners. If you see your name here when it clears, you will have won one additional clone!"

From somewhere, a drumroll plays.

And from the break room itself, a voice speaks. "I hate to interrupt, but are you Cyrus-R-NBV-6?"

Looking around, Speed-G gets confused, which in itself is nothing new, but the cause of his confusion is important right now. Where are they to sleep? There are no beds here...

(Perhaps L4-O has forgotten that they have a GREEN with them? I doubt that most GREENs would welcome sleeping on a mere sofa... )

"Well, here on the sofas, sir... unless you'd rather find somewhere else. There's beds on the other floors, and there's a few beds in the bunker, but not enough for everyone."

I nod at L4.

"Alright. We need to finish this mission."

Regardless of whether L4-O has forgotten or not, he tells Speed-G about his plan to sleep on the sofas. He does mention the beds on the other floors, but he also mnentions that there are really not enough to be worth it...

Speed-G accepts this, apparently deciding to rough it with everyone. Well, the alternatives would be sleeping in a different room, which wouldn't be as safe, or sleeping in a vehiclebot, which would just be lonely, so I guess it's to be understood.

Or maybe he's just putting the mission ahead of his own comfort.

"So what's the plan?" Lucas-O asks.

I claim an adequate looking sofa and test out its comfort by reclining onto it.

If L4-O's actions are to be believed, the plan is to get comfortable. Or at least, to try.

L4-O leads by example by trying out a sofa. (OOC: rolling: 2) And as it happens, they're as comfy as they look. L4-O thinks he could go to sleep on them.

I cross my digits and readily await the results.

"Hmm... Cyrus-R-NBV-6? Why yes, I think that might be be..."

I look around the break room, noting just where this voice happens to be coming from.
