I'm going to try to post what I learn in each room/route. I want to do it as I do each playthough so my experience of it won't be tainted by memory of other rooms. I'll probably do this in point form, and continue it in the Comments. One person on Twitter mentioned keeping track of everything in Excel XD My memory may be incorrect in some places--I've not been writing things down.

☆★☆★This will be full of spoilers★☆★☆


I've only 'finished' one playthrough, and I didn't even get to finish it because the last bit requires something from another route.

Jumpstart ⇒ Elevator ⇒ Elevator After Escape ⇒ Into the CDs ⇒ Yellow Door ⇒ Infirmary ⇒ Infirmary After Escape ⇒ AB Game Round 1 ⇒ AB Game Round 1 Ally ⇒ Into the CDs ⇒ Blue Door ⇒ Pressure Exchange Chamber ⇒ Pressure Exchange Chamber After Escape ⇒ AB Game Round 2 ⇒ AB Game Round 2 Ally ⇒ Crew Quarters ■LOCK No. 02■ Is there proof it wasn't murder?

→Sigma was kidnapped on December 25TH, 2028.

Elevator After Escape:
→Meet Tenmyouji, Dio, Quark, Luna, Alice, K, & Clover.
→Clover is still unconscious even after escaping the elevator.
→K has amnesia, and seems to be welded into a suit of armour. Sounds like a robot. His bracelet is hooked through the suit though, to attach unseen skin/wrist.
→Zero III gives them nicknames [Siggy, Phido, Alas, Cleaver (as if
referring to the 999 Axe Ending), B.O., Quirk, Tenmyoldie, Moony, and Potassium).
→'K' comes to his mind though he doesn't know his name. Zero III asks his name too.
→Clover is freaked-out over 'Zero' & 'Nonary Game'--Seems to know something about it. "It should be over".
→Alice met Clover a year ago.
→Phi works-out the anagram "WELCOME TO MY KINGDOM!" silly fast.
→Learn that Zero is one of the 9, and Zero III is merely an Artificial
Intelligence created to "facilitate the facility".

→Learn about Chromatic Doors.
→Learn about the Number 9 Door.
→Learn about key cards.
→Learn about pressing both buttons on the bracelet.
→"You can take your Lame-ary Game and shove it up your ass!" leads to learning not playing means death.
→Learn what is inside the bracelet. Needles that can inject Soporil β (an anesthetic from 999) & turbocurarine (a poison that shuts-down the respiratory system). ...Means of a painless death...
→Bracelet Colours:
Sigma & Phi = Red Pair
Clover & K = Green Pair
Dio & Quark = Blue Pair
Alice = Red Solo
Tenmyouji = Green Solo

→Find Soporil β & turbocurarine just sitting on a cabinet, for anyone to pocket, and/or use with the injection gun.
→Find newspaper article on Radical-6 (a virus that according to the article has reached a pandemic level).

Infirmary After Escape:
→Sigma is a college student who recently had his girlfriend dump him. His computer crapped-out while writing a paper due for a teacher that does not observe Christmas. He went to the school to type it there & drank 5 energy drinks. He got in his car and it wouldn't start, then a strange sound & his car flooded with knock-out gas. He saw Zero behind the car gawking at him through his rear view mirror.

→Phi suggests taking the corpse to the Infirmary to inspect the wound.
→Learn Luna has a medical license (but is neither a nurse or doctor, and not quite a coroner).
→Learn the ADAM can do diagnosis & autopsys.
→The woman was killed by exsanguination from a stab wound to the heart. Probably from a thin (3mm) knife.
→K is suspected as Clover was still unconscious, and they were the only previous ones in that room.
→K makes a point that since Zero III never reacted to the body, that it must be something planned by Zero (Zero Sr. as they say).

AB Game Round 1:
→Phi 'suggests' choosing Betray.
→Does Rock, Paper, Scissors to pick who chooses (I think you might automatically-win).

AB Game Round 1 Ally:
→Phi is annoyed that Ally was picked.
→Tenmyouji picks Betray.
→Dio (& Quark) pick Betray to Alice's Ally.
→Clover & K pick Betray to Luna's Ally.
→Zero III then finally explains that getting 0 Bracelet Points also
means the death penalty.
→Zero III suggests that Phi, Sigma, Alice, or...even Luna may die next Round. Maybe everyone actually.
→Clover & K act like Luna was stupid for choosing Ally.
→Alice is pissed at Dio.
→Bracelet Colours:
Sigma & Clover = Magenta Pair
Alice & Quark = Yellow Pair
Phi & Luna = Cyan Pair
→Bracelet Points:
Sigma, Phi, Luna, & Alice = 1BP
Dio, Quark, Tenmyouji, Clover, & K = 6BP
→Zero III says that this will probably be the last the group sees of him.
(Infirmary ⇒ Lounge ⇒ Crew Quarters)
→Quark is Tenmyouji's grandson, and they were kidnapped together.
→Tenmyouji won't say where or when they were taken.
→Quark acts confused & stares blankly.
→Tenmyouji is scared and suggests seeing Luna, but Quark seems to perk-up so Sigma & Grandpa try to believe him.
→A lunar eclipse is supposed to happen on December 31ST, 2028 by K showing an Astronomy magazine they found in the Lounge.
→...Dio is perhaps jokingly aroused by Saturn's rings...
→Dio won't say when he was taken.
→The date is guessed to still be Christmas Day.
→K mentions finding a book on Schrodinger's Cat.
→The Radical-6 newspaper article is shown around.
→Everyone seems to not know anything about it (and if it was a real pandemic, wouldn't they know?).
→There is a guess that everyone there is quarantined/infected.
→Dio suggests it's fake, and Phi, Sigma, K, & Luna agree. [The article should be front page news, but the back is plain black (Sigma says that full page advertisements aren't printed on the back of the front page)]
→Sigma confronts Clover & Alice about their conversation he overhead earlier.
→Clover & Alice are 'co-workers'.
→Clover decides she can trust Sigma.
→She admits she was in the last Nonary Game.
→And the first Nonary Game.
→She gives a vague description of what happened in the one from 999 [9 people kidnapped--well 7 since 2 were in on it...make that 9 if you count the other 2 that were kidnapped too (thus clearing the idea that Snake was 'in on' the plot. Of course the writer even said he wasn't, but if it makes things more believable then he guessed you could say he was. I PERSONALLY think he wasn't as why the Hell would he need to be drugged when put in the coffin? Spare clothes could be brought too, and just claim Zero had them made. I think he remembered Kanny!Akane dying because up until solving the sudoku that's what happened. Also just like he didn't recognise Santa's voice due to age, he didn't recognise Akane's--and why would he guess she wasn't really dead? He kept quiet on the past Nonary Game because he really did believe the threats to Clover. Also why would he make a guess at who Zero was, when he could just keep quiet & let the others do so?--He wrongly guessed Santa.).]
→BUT the last Nonary Game did what then Zero meant to, so why play another one?
→But the gasmask & cloak/coat worn was the same...
→Alice & Clover were kidnapped on December 22ND (were they asleep that long?!).
→Tenmyouji rushes in looking for Luna.
→Quark has collapsed.
→Luna scans him, and it's Radical-6.
→Tenmyouji is more sure it can't be than denial would explain.
→Alice mentions hearing about a 'bio-weapon'.
→Axelavir is the anti-viral serum for Radical-6.
→Quark wakes-up, grabs a scalpel, and tries to stab himself in the heart (SO DISTURBING. He yells about needing to escape. His soul needing to escape his body; that he needs to die. Quark is about 9 years-old D:).
→Sigma manages to grab him, and hold him down. Together the group gets the scalpel from him.
→The Soporil β is used to knock Quark out.
→Luna seems to know something about how Radical-6 operates.
→Phi was kidnapped on December 25TH, 2028.
→Luna was also kidnapped on December 25TH, 2028.

Into The CDs:
→They carry Quark to the Blue, Red, & Green Chromatic Doors.
→Alice won't go with Dio, so that leaves 2 Chromatic Door options (I can't remember if you have a jerk choice like with 999's Door 3).

Blue Door:
→Sigma & Clover partner with Tenmyouji.
→Alice & K partner with Quark.
→Phi & Luna partner with Dio.

Pressure Exchange Chamber:
Figures I'd find the save file corrupting PEC room on my first playthough D:
→Learn that the facility required all that entered to wear protective
suits & undergo decompression decontamination first. Due to viral spread concerns.
→The door to the outside is welded shut (and again Clover gets locked on the other side of glass).
→Learn that Tenmyouji knows quite a bit about LASERS.
→Find a memory card.

Pressure Exchange Chamber After Escape:
→More graffiti (I couldn't read it fast enough!)
→Find the White Chromatic Doors.
→Dio activates the Ambidex Doors as soon as he gets to the Warehouse A.
→Phi, Luna, & Dio found a vial of Axelavir in the Laboratory.
→Quark is injected, and his vitals go to seemingly normal--he is still asleep.
→Phi was kidnapped on December 25TH.
→The PEC memory card is played.
→The memory card contains an audio file of a man calling a group stationed on Mars.
→He mentions the (future) December 31ST lunar eclipse. And it being red. Asks how Mar's moons Deimos & Phobos are.
→After no response back for an uncomfortable time, it's learnt that the video feed he is seeing of the Mars group is a hacked loop.
→A woman finally replies saying that 6 of the group are dead.
→That she killed them, and is about to kill 6 billion more.
→There was a mock mission to Mars set-up (9 people in a facility set-up just as it would be if they were in space. Including radio silence.).
→Tenmyouji admits he was somewhat involved in the project.
→The mission had an infection of Radical-6, and it escaped.

AB Game Round 2:
→Sigma gets Tenmyouji to promise to choose Ally.
→Quark being asleep will automatically choose Ally.
→Once inside Clover acts really skankily OOC and tries to seduce Sigma (what would Snake say?!) into choosing Betray (she'd get 9BP).
→Luna trusts Phi to vote for her while she stays in the Infirmary with Quark.

AB Game Round 2 Ally:
→Clover is annoyed Sigma chose Ally.
→Tenmyouji kept his Ally promise.
→Sigma doesn't tell Tenmyouji that he was right with his suggestion that Clover might try to seduce him.
→Alice & K kept their promise to pick Ally to Quark's Ally.
→Phi (voting for Luna too) picked Betray to Dio's Betray.
→Bracelet Colours:
Sigma = Blue Solo
K = Red Solo
Dio = Green Solo
Phi = Magenta Pair
Clover = Cyan Pair
Tenmyouji = Yellow Pair
Alice's, Luna's, & Quark's are unknown.
→Bracelet Points:
Sigma, Luna, & Alice = 3BP
Clover, K, & Quark = 8BP
Phi = 1BP
Dio = 6BP
→Alice apparently takes off after voting--K says she said she felt tired, so probably went to go lay down.
→Tenmyouji has asked Luna to leave the Infirmary.
→Quark is still asleep.
→Tenmyouji keeps a photograh in his pocket.
→Zero did not take the photograph when they took everyone else's possessions.
→Tenmyouji won't tell Sigma anything on said photograph.
→Sigma tries to press Tenmyouji for more details on the Mars mission.
→Tenmyouji makes a statement asking if Sigma really wants to know? Or would he rather not taint his life memories, and view of the world.
→Phi then comes rushing in, looking upset, and tells them they need to come right away to the Crew Quarters & see Alice.

Crew Quarters ■Lock No. 02■ Is there proof it wasn't murder?:
→Alice has been stabbed in the chest with a scalpel.
→She's dead, and her Bracelet lays open beside her [I can't remember what it the display is, or if it is even shown up-close (999's 'bad shit is going down' ominous music plays)].
→Clover freaks-out and accuses everyone of murder.
→The group tries to work-out if it is (no-one suggests what happened to Quark).
→Clover threatens to kill everyone in 10 seconds unless they can prove that it isn't.
→Everyone sputters & tries to calm her down, but her countdown ends.
→Fade to "To Be Continued..."

After my SAVE FILE CORRUPTION the Crew Quarters was one of the first rooms I played as the save file glitch was reported most from the PEC and it. I figured I'd get it out of the way before replying all I had. That said, I never typed anything up on it when I played it. Though Bo did suggest numbers to try on the telephone for easter eggs.


Into the CDs ⇒ Cyan Door ⇒ Crew Quarters ⇒ Crew Quarters After Escape ⇒
AB Game Round 1 ⇒ AB Game Round 1 Ally ⇒ Into the CDs ⇒ Blue Door ⇒ B.
Garden ⇒ B. Garden After Escape ⇒ Infirmary ■LOCK No. 04■ There isn't enough anti-viral medication! ⇒ AB Game Round 2 ⇒ AB Game Round 2 Ally ⇒ Alice Game Over

Cyan Door:
→Sigma chooses the Cyan Door for Phi & him, meaning they go with Alice.
→They are okay with that. Dio & Quark are okay with Luna. But Clover wanted to go with Alice. Tenmyouji asks if he isn't good enough. She says he's oooolllld. Tenmyouji takes offence. He says he is still in the same shape as he was at 20 years-old.
→The announcement for 10 seconds until the doors close plays.
→Sigma says they don't have the time to fight, thst they need to go.
→ Tenmyouji concedes and tells Clover he'll tell her off later.
→ Clover brushes Tenmyouji's threat off.
→Everyone splits-up and the Chromatic Doors close.
→Phi, Sigma, & Alice enter through a door marked "Crew Quarters" and come to a hallway lined with doors.
→Phi says people probably stayed there.
→Alice points-out the numbers on the doors.
→Sigma suggests opening one and opens the 01 Door.
→Inside the small, sparse room is a bunk, a locker, desk, et cetera.
→Phi says her hypothesis was right.
→Alice asks who would stay in such a place though?
→Phi figures it's for workers and not guests.
→Sigma asks what they'd be working on.
→Phi says she doesn't know. Why would she know? That she knows as much about this facility as Sigma does.
→Alice asks if it's a coal mine, or drilling for oil.
→Phi again says she doesn't know.
→Sigma tries the exit door, and it's locked.
→They decide they can't exit until they unlock it then so best get to work.
→Sigma reminds them of the keycards so maybe one is there.
→They split-up for the rooms; Phi to 04 & Alice to 02.

Crew Quarters:
→03 has a pair of handcuffs blocking the latch.
→Sigma starts making cat puns uncontrollably after picking-up the Schrödinger's Cat book. [One of the Gold Files jokes it's a magic reason]
→Sigma doesn't think that the book is part of a puzzle so leaves it on 01's Safe.
→There is a telephone that can be used to make calls [A Gold File explains it can't call outside the facility!], but only to 4 digit numbers. Usually to easter eggs which do not affect the puzzles/plot.
6969: "Woman's Voice" = A sex hotline. $24.95 a minute.
3141: "Euler" = A history lesson on pie (not π) [Leonhard Euler was a mathematician who popularised using Pi to represent the number of the circumference of a circle.]
5309: "Jenny" = A woman named Jenny. Sigma says he got her number on a wall...
8008: "46137.0" = An upside down message made with numbers [!378163771 51 34 4506]. Flipping & translating gets 'GOSH HE IS ILLEGIBLE!'.
→The telephone (01's has a display panel about it) has a cassette place/bay for an answering machine tape (01's has a metal piece like a luncheon meat can key). Asking Alice about the telephone in 02 has her say it must be "decades" old.
→ There are also buttons 1-4 for dialing to the telephones in the other rooms--except 03. It gives a no line associated with this number recording.
→Calling 02 & 04 has halves of another number [2592]. But 04 has Phi confuse an asterisk for "Agricola" which Sigma says is a "German-style boardgame farming simulator".
→Dialing the combined puzzle number gets "This is room 3. No tape has been inserted. The answering machine will not function.".

→Sigma is very excited about the tropical poster of a woman with scratch ticket stuff in the shape of a bathing suit on it.
→The pieces of key you find in 02 & 04 make a key to unlock the handcuffs on 03.
→03 has a large box cutter on the desk. It's sharp but not very long.
→The locker is unlocked and contains a huge industrial roll of aluminum/tin foil. It has symbols printed on it. Sigma cuts them off into 3 sheets with the box cutter.
→03 has LOCKER. 01 has ●★♦▲ . 02 has 4985 (the code for 02's locker which has a cassette tape in it). 04 has 3472 (the code for 04's locker which has a wallet in it. The wallet contains a toy coin).
→★ with a 6 ● with a 1 ♦ with an 8 ▼ with a 9 are on the poster by scratching-off accessories located where the holes in the cots are (each room cot has a body silhouette on it with holes ripped into the cot on various limbs).
→Sigma keeps scratching the poster to try to scratch-off the bikini under the scratch-off bathing suit on the woman.
→Calling the numbers in the symbols' order gives nothing.
→Calling the 03 number after getting the cassette in 03's answering machine plays a message from Zero III. He tells Sigma to look at the display above the telephone. 2652 is shown. Calling that number opens the answering machine door to get that key/pin.
→The code from the poster & the symbols match except the triangle is flipped. So if you switch the 9 for a 6 & the 6 for a 9 you get the right locker code (1986). [Looking at the numbers upside-down will give 9861 for the Gold File.]
→Sigma is sad no-one appreciates or sees his victory dance at opening the safe.
→Sigma decides to get Phi & Alice there before looking at the safe contents so they won't get pissed and/or accuse him of stealing anything from it.
→The Crew Quarters Safe contains a Floor A map, 2 Sun Keycards, a note with more Rules (noting even Zero III can't prevent someone/anyone from entering a room/door after it's been opened/escaped ftom) , and the exit key.
→Alice asks about the "Schrödinger's Cat" book.
→Sigma says it's just a book about cats but they don't have time for it right then--falling into his cat pun talking.
→Phi questions the cat pun talking.
→Sigma says it's a "tic". That he has been doing it since he was little and it's involuntary. It's safe though...
→Which Alice is doubtful on.
→Sigma mispronounces "Schrödinger's" as "Shrodinger's". Phi corrects him.
→Sigma asks if she's heard of it.
→Phi says it's rarer to find someone who hasn't!
→He asks Alice if she has.
→Alice says yes. She just wondered why that book was there.
→Sigma asks what it is, then.
→Phi tells him it's a quantum physics thought experiment. That the book probably goes into the principles of it more.
→ Phi knows Schrödinger's full name & home country. And birthday, et cetera.
→Sigma interrupts. Asking if it's going to take long.
→Phi says yes. Sigma suggests leaving the story until later and using the escape key right now (meow? :-P ).
→Phi & Alice agree he is right.

Crew Quarters After Escape:
→Sigma, Alice, Phi go open the door, escape, and go down the following hallway.
→At the end they come to an elevator & K, Clover, Tenmyouji, Luna, Dio, & Quark.
→Phi looks at the Floor A map and reveals all 3 rooms lead to the same place.
→ K & Quark say they found maps too. In the Lounge & Infirmary respectively. Sigma says they had the Crew Quarters.
→Tenmyouji suggests sitting down and exchanging information.
→ Phi says no. They should check the elevator first.
→ Down the elevator the group finds more Chromatic Doors [Blue, Green, Red]. The doors are locked.
→Clover notices Alice looking at her Bracelet and asks what's wrong.
→Alice says nothing, just that the time remaining numbers have changed.
→ Sigma checks his too. 2 hours 6 minutes.
→ Dio is pissed they have to wait for the Chromatic Doors to open them.
→Tenmyouji says they'll have to head back then. He asks Clover to show the note they found.
→ Clover starts to and Quark asks if it's the 'Supplementary Rules' one. Sigma confirms his group found one too.
→Sigma reads them. And points-out about going back through doors/rooms.
→Phi says she thinks Zero III isn't suggesting but telling them they have to go back the way they came. She points-out the Ambidex Room keycards.
→All 3 groups got 2, so 6 Sun Keys. One for each Ambidex Room.
→Luna says they head back then.
→Dio questions obeying the orders/rules.
→Tenmyouji says he can stay and guard the Chromatic Doors then, like a "stupid, angry mutt".
→Dio is annoyed. He insults Tenmyouji & says he'd better hope Dio doesn't have rabies.
→Alice asks Dio what he plans to do.
→ Dio concedes he's going with everyone else.
→The group goes back through the Crew Quarters.
→Clover wonders about it.
→K states it's just like the note said--even though they weren't in that team, non-team members can still enter that escaped puzzle room.
→Luna says they could go to the other puzzle rooms too! Dio agrees.
→The group starts looking around the Crew Quarters.
→Quark excitedly shows Tenmyouji the lady poster. Like the ones Tenmyouji owns too.
→Tenmyouji says she's hot. Saying she's "14 or 15 EU" ['Erotic Units' explained in a Gold File]. Quark agrees. Tenmyouji laments he can't take it with him. He says they should keep going.
→Sigma wonders why Quark is calling Tenmyouji "Grandpa". When they became close? Were they from the start? Did they know each other before the Nonary Game? Are they actually related?
→And he realises Alice & Clover are close too.
→Did any others know each other before the Nonary Game?
→Tenmyouji says he can't wait to get back to his "Grandpa Videos". Quark teases him. Tenmyouji tells him not to be so loud about it.

→They get back to the Warehouse A.
→Zero III is on the screen yawning that they took so long so he had a nap.
→Dio yells at him as he's a computer program and doesn't get tired.
→Zero III threatens Dio.
→Dio gives-up. Zero III tells him he's a "good boy" (meaning he might have heard Tenmyouji earlier).
→Zero continues on about the rules. How to get more BP.
→Sigma says they must go into the AB Rooms. That they just got keycards for them.
→Luna asks who goes into what room though?
→Zero III says anyone can go into any Ambidex Room.
→Alice points-out there are only 6 rooms for 9 people.
→ Zero III reminds them about the pairs.
→K asks if that means a pair goes in together and Zero III says yes (though we learn on other routes that they don't have too.).
→Quark asks what they do in a room when they enter.
→Zero III excitedly says that they play the Ambidex Game!
→Tenmyouji asks what "ambidex" means. K-the smart cute-explains that it is probably short for "ambidextrous". "Most use the word to refer to the ability to use both of one's hands, instead of favoring the left or right, but it can also be taken to mean someone who is duplicitous or two-faced.".
→Sigma states it must be a game of betrayal then. Zero III says yeah.
→Quark asks what the Nonary Game is then?!
→Zero III says that means all of it! The point of opening the Number 9 Door and escaping. That the Ambidex Game is just a game within the Nonary Game. He asks if it makes sense to everyone.
→Dio says "Like hell. This shit is confusing.". Zero III asks if it is confusing or if Dio is just stupid. Dio gets pissed. Zero III laughs.
→Zero III tells them to go into the Ambidex Rooms and he'll explain more then (that it might be easier to understand that way).
→They divide up the Sun Keys and head into the AB Rooms. They didn't even discuss who would go into what one.
→ As soon as one opens an Ambidex Gate the announcement plays. 45 minutes left to vote.
→Sigma is annoyed that this has a time limit too.
→Sigma looks inside their Ambidex Room and is confused as to why no-one but Phi & him are in it (As I played this after routes where the old woman's corpse is found, I don't know if he wonders this if this is the first route).
→Phi wonders why the Hell he would think someone would be in it.
→Sigma says he knows but yet...
→Phi dismisses him.
→Sigma is shaken but continues.
→They say it looks just like the room they started in. Sigma notices that the screen is on now though.
→The screen has the Ambidex Game voting thing on it. That the door will lock and stay locked until polling closes.
→Sigma/you press "START", the door closes/locks, and Phi gets pissed he/you dod that :[
→ Sigma is all D:
→ Phi asks if he even read what it said first?! That thanks to him they're stuck in there for the remaining 40-ish minutes. She is so pissed-off.
→Zero III shows on the screen announcing everyone closed their AB Gates.
→Sigma wonders why it's called a 'gate' (me too, Sigma, me too). Zero III just exclaims that it's an Ambidex Room (fuck you, Zero III, fuck you.). [I'm noting this because of this being s time where they don't encounter the corpse]
→Zero III moves to the other tiny screen.
→Zero III explains that they don't just compete against anyone but who they went with through the Chromatic Doors.
→Zero III nicknames the outcomes:
"Best Pals" = Ally + Ally (+2 BP = 2 BP)
"Stupid Jerkface" = Ally + Betray (-2 BP = +3 BP)
"Serves Them Right" = Betray + Ally (+2 BP = -3 BP)
"Why Even Bother" = Betray + Betray (0 BP = 0 BP)
→He says as the one in charge of MCing the game he wants to avoid no change.
→He explains how the Pairs only get one vote and how the outcome effects both the same if they were Solos.
→He finishes by saying that that's most of the rules, but a few more will have to wait.
→Sigma is all whaaa?! Wait?!
→Zero III tells him it will be alright like he is talking to a little kid. Sigma is annoyed.

→The 30 minutes remain for polling announcement plays.
→Zero III leaves with the contradicting advice not to leave voting until the last moment and to take their time to think their decision over.
→Sigma asks Phi what they are going to do for voting.
→Phi says it's a tough decision.
→ Again (from another route) she brings-up the prisoner's dilemma thought experiment.
→After explaining through Apple & Banana [Apple & Banana are arrested for a crime. They are put in separate jails so they can't contact each other and neither are espers. A detective offers them each the same deal. That if they stay quiet they get 2 years. If only one confesses that person will get 1 year and the other will get 15. If both confess they both get 10 years.] she asks Sigma what would he do if he was Apple.
→Sigma says the best option is to confess. He'll either get 1 year or 10.
→Phi asks what about what Banana is thinking?
→She points-out that the best option for both is to stay silent. And get 2 years.
→She states that the Ambidex Game is the prisoner's dilemma.
→She asks Sigma to think of all 9 people as a team. Who would their opponent be?
→Sigma right away says Zero.
→Phi asks him what they have to do to defeat Zero?
→She gets Sigma to think about how voting as a team of 9 would work.
→Sigma figures-out that if everyone voted Ally the round would get 18 BP total. But only 16 if only one team votes Betray. The more Betrays the worse the whole group does on total Bracelet Points.
→ Phi says exactly.
→That if everyone works together everyone benefits. But if someone works for themselves then everyone, even that person is impacted negatively.

→Sigma says he thinks he understands, then. →That Phi wants him to vote Ally.
→She says no. That even if that choice is "rational" it's not "logical".
→That the thought experiment is called "dilemma" not "solution".
→That even if they want to go for best result they can't.
→Unless they can be certain Alice will chose Ally they have to choose Betray.
→That they'll end-up with only 1 BP if she votes Betray otherwise.
→ That they'll be "screwed" if that happens.
→The dialogue cuts funny here. Like not smoothly. I wonder if it's because I've played other routes?
→Sigma asks what she means? What happens if they get to 0 BP. Phi is quiet so he asks if she knows something?!
→That she is hiding something. He brings-up how she's been acting weird, and how she knew his name.
→Phi tells him to stop that she's getting tired of it.
→Sigma doesn't care if she is tired of it.
→He doesn't know her but she seems to know him.
→He asks the only theory that makes sense is she's working with Zero.
→Phi asks if he is.
→ He asks what?!
→She tells him he wasn't bothered by waking-up in the elevator. Being forced to play the Nonary Game. That he is acting too calm.
→Sigma says she is too.
→She angrily tells him not to defer.
→She asks if he knows her.
→Sigma goes to say no, but pauses.
→He starts having flashes of things. Like Phi jumping, Phi in a patch of grass, Alice, someone holding a knife. He then sees a bomb.
→He hears Phi talking to him. She says for him to just let something go. That their time is up. Before it ends she wants to tell him "thanks". That even though they are about to die, he still stayed with her. "Goodbye...". He remembers her hugging him, and then sees a base explode.
→Sigma comes back to the current moment asking what that was.
→Phi asks what he means. What's wrong?
→He says he saw "the explosion".
→She asks what he means. He says he thinks there is a bomb somewhere in the facility. That it sounds like it's on a timer.
→That him & her were trying to stop it but couldn't and--he starts panicking.
→Phi tells him to settle. Actually sounding concerned.
→She goes to ask him but Sigma starts exclaiming his head hurts.
→Phi remembers he said his head hurt at the beginning too...
→He says it felt so bad.
→She suggests he rest.
→He agrees but then is a sleaze by suggesting he do so with his head in her lap.
→A pause from both and she says she shouldn't have worried.
→They spend the rest of the voting time quiet.
→Sigma loses track of what is happening as he mulls-over what is going-on with him.
→He wonders if the flashback was real or caused by stress or if he was drugged.
→He decides it felt real. He wonders it is was a premonition.
→He laughs and dismisses it as something that only happens in stories.
→He figures he is just tired or stressed. That he is being effected despite what Phi says. Hallucinating when so emotional and exhausted might be normal.
→But he still can't shake the feeling of it being real.
→He sits there mulling over it until the 5 minutes left in polling announcement plays.
→It says that anyone not voting defaults to Ally.
→Sigma asks what it was about, and Phi is pissed-off. She again calls him stupid and explains.
→Sigma says that you wouldn't even need to be in the Ambidex Room if you planned to vote Ally then.
→She agrees.
→--But since they are there and all...They should decide what they plan to do.
→She asks Sigma what they should do (In character I'd expect her to vote anyway. But maybe she has hope Sigma will vote Ally?).
→Sigma asks why she is asking? She said already they were going to vote "Betray".
→She said she didn't, just that they should.
→Sigma says it's the same thing :[
→"It's completely different. The former is an active opinion. The latter is just passive information." [Phi is tedious.]
→Sigma asks if that means Phi still wants to vote Betray. She says yes.
→He again asks why she asked then. She doesn't answer.
→Sigma goes back to the "screwed" at 1 BP conversation.
→After a long pause she answers that they die if the BP reaches 0. That the Bracelet injects them.
→Sigma asks how she knows!? Zero III never said anything about that!

→She says she doesn't know how she knows, but she knows somehow. That she has a strong feeling that's what happens.
→Sigma is annoyed. He brings-up again how she knew his. There is no way she could know.
→But then he remembers his 'memories' of a bomb.
→He asks her if she had a premonition too.
→She acts weirded-out by the suggestion and how weird Sigma sounded earlier too.
→She again asks if he is alright. That she thinks something is wrong.
→He thinks that Phi is the one who should be acting odd, not him.
→Sigma questions his sanity.
→Sigma's head hurts again.
→The 1 minute left announcement plays. Phi asks Sigma what he is going to do.
→She says she'll do it if he won't.
→But Sigma cuts her off and says he will.
→Phi asks if he's going to vote Betray.
→Sigma says he will [but I make him a dirty liar.].
→With 30 seconds left, Sigma stands over the screen going over the choices.
→He takes a deep breath and decides there is only 1 option to take.

AB Game Round 1 Ally:
→Sigma presses "Ally".
→The announcement that voting is completed plays & the Ambidex Gates open.
→As Sigma & Phi leave the Ambidex Room, he notices everyone else hurrying to the results screen.
→Phi confronts Sigma and starts yelling at him for picking Ally Instead of Betray. She asked if he even listened to her or if he even thought at all.
→Sigma says he did listen & think. But that he wants to believe in Alice.
→Phi dejectedly says it wasn't a logical decision.
→Zero III shows on the screen.
→He calls Phi & Sigma over for the results.
→Phi says they'll see if Sigma made the right choice.
→K & Clover voted Betray to Tenmyouji's Ally. Dio & Quark [surprisingly!] vote Ally & Luna votes Ally. Phi & Sigma vote Ally to Alice's Betray.
→Bracelet Points:
Clover, K, & Alice = 6 BP
Luna, Dio, & Quark = 5 BP
Tenmyouji, Phi, & Sigma = 1 BP
→Sigma confronts Alice.
→She acts like he has no reason to be upset. She made the logical choice.
→That in this situation it was the option to minimise risk & maximise reward.
→She adds that anyone thinking/doing otherwise is stupid.
→Sigma asks again why.
→Alice says she could ask why too.
→Sigma brings-up the prisoner's dilemma. That the best solution is for everyone to vote Ally.

→She sarcastically points-out his 'everyone'.
→She reminds him K & Clover voted Betray too.
→Sigma is quiet.
→She says that she knows about the prisoner's dilemma, but everyone voting Ally wasn't a likely outcome. She points-out the results again to show that (despite Dio, Quark, & Luna doing it right).
→She again calls him stupid :/
→She then half apologises but that she's trying to warn him.
→Phi agrees with Alice. Sigma is an idiot.
→That it's his fault they have 1 BP.
→Sigma storms away upset.
→He questions to himself why she voted Betray.
→He sees Luna, Dio, & Quark being happy/relieved about their results.
→Luna thanks Dio & Quark. That she is so happy.
→Dio is all 'er...'.
→Quark says Dio wanted to pick Betray actually. That if they got 3 BP from Luna they could work on escaping together. That they'd Betray next round too.
→Luna asks Dio if that's true...
→Dio is shaken and denies it.
→Quark exclaims he was just joking.
→That he doesn't think Dio would ever do something like that!
→Luna is still uneasy.
→Dio says he really had him.
→Quark laughs. [He is an ass. How can someone joke about that to poor Luna?!]
→Luna asks if they planned to vote Ally from the start then? [The hope in her voice is heartbreaking]
→She doesn't wait for an answer, thanking them again.
→Quark states they only did what anyone would!
→Dio plays along.
→Cut to Tenmyouji crestfallen saying he understands.
→...That he hasn't had time to earn Clover's trust yet.
→She is all...I guess? I didn't expect you to take the betrayal calmly...
→Sigma figures that that group had been arguing beforehand.
→Alice asks Zero III when the next Round starts.
→Zero III asks why she thinks there will be another one?~
→Alice says he called that voting run Round 1, and K backs her up with needing another round for anyone to possibly get 9 BP.
→Zero III says that they are correct. That yep, there is another Round.
→Clover asks when.
→Zero III says he doesn't know!
→Clover asks why?
→Zero III says voting starts when an Ambidex Gate opens.
→The camera looks over to show the AB Gates open already. Luna points this out.
→Zero III agrees and then closes them.
→As soon as they close the announcement for Round 2 plays, stating it's the Moon Round. So Moon Keys will be needed to open the Ambidex Gates.
→Sigma asks if the Sun Cards are useless now?
→Zero III confirms.
→Dio asks how many times they have to play the Ambidex Game?
→Zero III says he doesn't know. As many times as needed. That he wants someone to open the Number 9 Door.
→Tenmyouji asks if that means someone gets 9 BP then?
→Zero III says no, as long as they don't open the Number 9 Door!
→He says that someone could also not get 9 BP, depending on the voting.
→That the Number 9 Door needs 9 BP to open, so they could have to play many more Rounds [he even suggests up to Round "24,009,004,897"].
→But he hopes it doesn't.

→Sigma asks Zero III how many people can go through the Number 9 Door? If it has rules like the Chromatic Doors.
→Zero III says any amount can go though.
→But he says you don't necessarily need 3 people to go through Chromatic Doors either.
→Sigma asks what?
→Zero III says that 2 or 1 could open a Door too.
→Alice questions him.
→Zero III says he didn't want to complicated things.
→K asks him to explain.
→Zero III says that they can just use the Bracelets.
→Clover asks how. [Being a previous Nonary Game player, why does she have to ask?]
→Zero III says that there is a scanner between the doors. But what is scans isn't the people.
→Luna asks if it checks the Bracelets.
→Zero III confirms. That as long as the right Bracelets enter, then the amount of people doesn't matter.
→Sigma asks if the Bracelets can even be removed.
→Zero III says yes.
→Quark asks how?!
→Zero III says there are 2 ways. 1ST Escape...or...
→Dio ask the 2ND.
→Zero III says he figures Dio already knows.
→Dio is shocked [Having played Dio End I know he knows].
→Zero III asks if he wants to remove it?
→Dio says yes.
→Zero III says that it's easy. It comes off when you die.
→Everyone is aghast.
→Zero III explains that the Bracelets monitor the energy their hearts make by pumping blood [like an electrocardiogram]. So if it doesn't detect a signal--
→--Phi interrupts that the Bracelet releases.
→Zero III confirms. That escape or a heart stopping are the only ways to remove a Bracelet. Anything else they could try would break the game rules. Leading to a penalisation.
→He ominously says some might release during Round 2. He laughs.
→Tenmyouji & Alice ask what he means?
→Zero III says someone might die next round. He guesses Tenmyouji, Sigma, or Phi. Or maybe everyone?
→Sigma & Tenmyouji ask what? Phi's chathead is shown but she is quiet.
→Zero III says he guesses he can tell them. Getting 0 BP means death.
→Sigma asks if he means the needles?
→Zero III says yes, it's the same as a penalty.
→Sigma thinks back to Phi being right but knowing before being told by Zero III.
→Tenmyouji says he gets it. If they lose 2 BP they'll have -1 BP.
→Sigma thinks a bit. He goes over what they just learned. Especially that everyone could escape, and the lack of people attached to Bracelets, and Bracelet removal conditions.
→Zero III lastly adds that the next Chromatic Doors are downstairs--Red, Blue, Green. But they'd need Cyan, Yellow, and Magenta Bracelets to combine for that. He tells them to look at their Bracelets.
→The colours have changed.
→Bracelet Colours:
Sigma & Luna = Yellow Pair
Alice = Yellow Solo
Tenmyouji & Dio = Magenta Pair
Phi = Magenta Solo
K & Quark = Cyan Pair
Clover = Cyan Solo
→Quark asks when they changed?
→Zero III says that they changed/shuffle when the Ambidex Gates close. That it's random.
→Zero III then fakes being sad. He says they may not see each other again.
→Clover questions.
→Zero III says now that they have the rules and know how things work that he isn't needed to facilitate things. He pretends to cry then taunts them.
→Sigma calls Zero III a dick.
→Zero III laughs, says a farewell, then blips off the screen.
→Dio is pissed. He says he'd kill Zero III if he could.
→Sigma is :S
→Quark asks what they are going to do before the next Chromatic Doors open?
→Sigma checks the remainder; 42 minutes.
→Alice suggests looking for other exits.
→K agrees. Even if they don't they still can go through the Chromatic Doors.
→Phi says they should meet outside the Chromatic Doors 5 minutes before they open. She asks for objections?
→No-one has any. They split-up & leave.
→Sigma stays though.
→Sigma goes over wondering why he is there. He can't think of what he'd done for Zero to pick him. [SEE Magenta Door ⇒ Lounge route]

→Sigma remembers what he can of the night/early morning he was taken. December 25TH, 2028. [This is the same as on other routes. Sigma had pulled an all-nighter on a paper for a Buddhist professor trying to prove a point. His computer crashed so he went to use a school one. His girlfriend had broken-up with him by e-mail so he decided to not go to a Christmas party he was going to (deciding drinking alone there was not good). He felt light-headed going back to his car, which he blamed on relief at finishing & energy drinks. He got into his car, managed to get the key in but it wouldn't start. He tries 5 times and the engine makes a weird noise. He pounds on the steering wheel in frustration. Then a clicking noise and gas/smoke start flooding the car. Sigma tries to get out, as first registering his inability to on his lack of sleep. He remembers being so confused. He starts to pass-out from whatever the gas/smoke is. The last thing he remembers seeing is a cloaked figure in a gasmask standing behind his car (Having played 999 I recognise the figure as "Zero". The disguise both Akane & Santa wore).]
→Sigma decides he'd better just go look too.
(Crew Quarters ⇒ Infirmary ⇒ Lounge)
→Sigma finds K & Quark in the Crew Quarters.
→They are glad to see one of the group that solved this room.
→Quark and K ask Sigma if he found a secret door or anything suspicious in that room.
→Sigma says if he had he would have told everyone.
→K asks if he found anything odd then.
→Sigma thinks about the "Schrödinger's Cat" book.
→Just then Quark finds it and asks about it.
→Sigma says in the word pun tic that it is about cats.
→Quark questions the cat talk.
→Sigma explains it's involuntary and it's happened since he was a kid. That when he talks about cats he talks like a cat...
→K & Quark both think it's weird.
→Quark asks Sigma what the book is about.
→Sigma pretty much just quotes Phi.
→K explains what the actual thought experiment is about.
→Sigma admits he just verbatimed Phi and knows nothing about it.
→Quark suspects it has no clues then but starts cat pun talking too.
→K points-out it out sadly. And Quark laughs.
→Sigma asks what they found.
→K says that the whole facility is suspicious...but admits that's not what Sigma is asking.
→He says the puzzles in the Lounge were lunar eclipse themed. He says that supposedly there is going to be a lunar eclipse on December 31ST, 2028.
→Sigma asks isn't that the coming New Year's Eve?
→K guesses it it. He says he isn't really sure on the current year/date. But Clover said similar too.
→Sigma thinks over that the eclipse would be in 6 days after when he was kidnapped. He wonders what the lunar eclipse has to do with any of this.
→K asks Quark about the Infirmary.
→Quark says they did find something odd.
→Sigma asks what. Quark is surprised Luna or Dio didn't tell him.
→Quark pulls-out the Radical-6 newspaper article [SEE Infirmary/Tenmyouji End route].
→Sigma asks if it's real...K says it's hard to believe.
→The both agree it sounds important though.
→Sigma says he hasn't even heard the term "Radical-6" before, and he's seen nothing on the news.
→Sigma wonders if it is true though.
→He has a strong feeling that he's heard the term before actually. He wonders where & why...
→K says that he is worried about the outside world if it is real. Is there a pandemic?
→Sigma, K, & Sigma freak-out in silence a moment.
→Quark eventually stumbles out that they shouldn't be worrying too much on it. That they should work on leaving the facility first.
→K agrees. That the fastest way to learn what is going-on outside is to get outside.
→Quark & K decide to keep searching the "cabins" [Crew Quarters].
→After asking Sigma his plan of action, Sigma decides to look elsewhere.
→In the Infirmary Sigma runs into Alice.

AB Game Round 1 Betray ⇒ Red Door ⇒ Control Room ⇒ Control Room After Escape ⇒ AB Game Round 2 ⇒ AB Game Round 2 Ally ⇒ Warehouse A ■Lock No. 08■ How do we stop Phi?

AB Game Round 1 Betray:
→The voting ending announcement plays.
→Everyone but Phi & Sigma rush to the results screen.
→Phi says that he picked what she wanted him to pick so thanks him.
→Sigma says she doesn't have to that he just made the obvious choice.
→She asks what he means.
→Sigma says that he is certain Alice picked Betray. That they had to vote Betray too.
→Phi asks how he knows what she picked?
→Sigma is quiet a moment and says he just knows. Phi asks if he's mocking her. Sigma says "maybe".
→Zero III calls them over. Phi says they'd better go see if Sigma made the right choice.
→K & Clover voted Betray and Tenmyouji voted Ally, Dio & Quark voted Ally and Luna vited Ally, Sigma & Phi voted Betray and Alice voted Ally [Much to my irritation! Just like that ass Tenmyouji]
→Bracelet Points:
Sigma, Phi, Clover, & K = 6BP
Dio, Quark, & Luna = 5BP
Tenmyouji & Alice = 1BP
→Sigma runs to Alice asking what the fuck?!
→Alice is confused. Sigma says she picked Betray last time!
→He starts to falter, that he picked Betray this time because of last time...
→She asks what the Hell he is talking about "last time"?
→Sigma asks when she pushed the button to vote. She says right after the 5 minutes left announcement.
→Sigma says that can't be right.
→Sigma flashes back to the results board from where Alice voted Betray here [See AB Game Round 1 Ally on this route]. He questions what is going on. That last time when Phi & him voted Ally that Alice voted Betray. Remembering her "minimising risk" explanation. How she called him an idiot for being optimistic.
→He wonders what was different this time to have her vote Ally when him & Phi voted Betray?
→If his choice had somehow changed history?
→Sigma decides that's not right. That at least if she had chosen Ally because she knew he had chosen Betray then that was one thing, "the principle of cause and effect". But this wasn't that. Alice couldn't have known. And if she had she definitely would have voted Betray.
→Sigma thinks of it like a game of Rock, Paper, Scissors. That if he put out rock first, then Alice put out paper after she'd win. So he goes back in time to choose scissors. He goes first again and Alice chooses rock. Like that still makes sense. His actions before cause her actions after. But that's not how it happened in this Ambidex Game. Using again Rock, Paper, Scissors, he says this is like if Alice went first this time but he doesn't know what she played. So he goes with rock. It's revealed Alice went with paper. Sigma loses and is pissed-off. So goes back in time to retry. He decides to play scissors this time because it's obvious to win against Alice's paper. But importantly Alice has already made her choice before he plays anything. But Alice has put out rock instead. That he would be so angry! How could she play rock when before she played paper?! That there Isn't any cause and effect here. That Alice's choice was in the past and his was in the future. How could the future influence the past?

Time:2016-06-27 12:30 am (UTC)
→Sigma again remembers the results board where him & Phi voted Ally. He realises this isn't a theory now. That the Rock, Paper, Scissors scenario actually just happened.
→Sigma wonders what is happening?!
→Then Sigma questions why he is thinking so casually about time travel?! That this is real-life. That time travel is impossible.--Right?
→But why does he so vividly remember him & Phi voting Ally before? Why does he remember Alice's explanation.
→Alice startles him out of his thoughts. Asking if he had a stroke or such.
→Alice says Sigma should be answering her questions instead. Because she only has 1BP left because of him & Phi.
→Sigma agrees. Him agreeing pisses her off. Sigma sincerely apologises. He feels terrible for voting Betray.
→Alice says she'll never trust Sigma or Phi again. That they'll "pay" for it.
→Alice storms away and the look she gives Sigma stabs him.
→Sigma overhears K & Clover trying to explain themselves to Tenmyouji.
→Tenmyouji says he wouldn't ever vote Betray because of Clover being his opponent. Clover asks what he means. K asks if Tenmyouji has a crush on her. Tenmyouji stumbles and says no. K asks what then and Tenmyouji tries to answer. Clover interrupts and says Tenmyouji is stupid to vote Ally. That the only reason to would be if you impeccably trusted the other persons. Tenmyouji asks if she doesn't trust him then, and she says of course not! She asks if he's losing his mind expecting her to trust a stranger she just met. Tenmyouji says he understands now. He seems on the verge of tears and mumbles how he didn't think it would hurt so much. Clover questions him on that and says he's acting creepy now. He tells her he understands that he guesses he hasn't had time yet for her to trust him. Clover acts surprised by how calm he is over it. Tenmyouji points-out Luna, Quark, & Dio's group. That the fault with his group's results must be his.
→Luna is thanking Dio & Quark profusely.
→Quark says they only did what anyone else would. Dio hesitates but agrees.
→Sigma thinks everyone else probably wishes they had done like Luna, Quark, & Dio did. Both teams vote Ally for 5BP all around.
→Sigma wonders what had happened in their AB Room though to have Dio sound so awkward agreeing?
→Alice asks Zero III when the next round starts? He asks why she thinks there will be another round? She points-out he said "Round 1". K also says that if the goal is to get 9BP then there would have to be a 2ND round. Zero does the whole spiel on how the next round will be when an AB Gate opens. Luna says they're already open, Zero III closes them and the announcement about the Moon Round plays.
→Sigma asks if it's Moon Cards then does that mean the Sun Cards no longer work? Zero III confirms.
→Then the part where Dio asks how many rounds and Zero III says he doesn't know. And Tenmyouji's question and Zero III confirming that no, the game goes until the Number 9 Door opens and not just if someone gets 9BP. That the game could go on forever though.
→And Sigma asking about the Bracelet & Secondary Door rules. If there is similar for the Number 9 Door? Zero III says there isn't, all 9 of them even could.
→Zero III says that the people numbers for Secondary/Chromatic Doors isn't exactly correct though. That instead of 3 people, 1 or 2 could enter them. Alice questions his earlier rules and he says he didn't want to "make things complicated". Then the whole thing that the scanner between the Doors only scans the bracelets and not the people wearing them. That the bracelets only come off if you escape through the Number 9 Door or your heart stops though. And then the part about how reaching 0BP is the same as the penalty result.
→Sigma thinks on how Phi was right then. But how had she known?
→Alice berates Zero III for not explaining all the rules sooner. Zero III says it's fair because no-one else knew about the 0BP rule. He asks Phi if that's right, and she hesitates and agrees.
→Sigma contemplates all the new information.
→Zero III explains about the Bracelet Colours.
→Bracelet Colours:
Sigma & Luna = Yellow Pair
Alice = Yellow Solo
Tenmyouji = Magenta Pair
Phi & Dio = Magenta Pair
K & Quark = Cyan Pair
Clover = Cyan Solo
→Zero III says his farewell.

→Quark asks what they should do now then? In the time before the next Round?
→Alice suggests looking for other exits.
→K agrees they should look around at least.
→Phi suggests meeting in front of the 2ND set of Chromatic Doors then, 5 minutes before open.
→Everyone but Sigma leaves Warehouse A. He starts wondering with despair why he is even there.
→He remembers about how he was taken [See other routes].
→Sigma decides to go search things too.
(Infirmary ⇒ Lounge ⇒ Crew Quarters)
→Sigma meets Alice, Dio, & Tenmyouji in the Infirmary.
→Sigma asks if she's still angry. She says she is. Dio asks her to calm down and she says he should be quiet as he has 5BP. That her & Tenmyouji only have 1BP and could die.
→Tenmyouji says she shouldn't get angry at people though. That being a jerk to Sigma doesn't help her any.
→Alice says he doesn't understand. That he is old so closer to death, not like her. She has things ahe plans to do.
→Dio asks like what and she again says she plans to wear "gorgeous clothes", eat lots of "delicious food", & fall in love.
→Tenmyouji calls her dumb. That he was going to agree with her until she gave those reasons.
→Alice says she really does have something more important to do. Sigma asks what and she says to avenge her father's murder. Sigma asks for more details but she refuses.
→Sigma does ask to know if her father's murder has a connection to them being trapped in the facility. She doesn't know either way. But maybe her own kidnapping is connected because she was close to finding the killers.
→Sigma asks if she's a detective. She says that's close. Tenmyouji, Dio, & Sigma look at her because she doesn't look like one.
→Sigma asks if she's CIA then. She isn't. She says in her line of work not looking like what she is is best.
→Dio asks about her being close to Clover. She denies they work together and that they just met in a desert but that's a long story.
→Alice says the others should talk about themselves too.
→Tenmyouji says he's a garbage collector. He refuses to answer Alice about how he knows Quark.
→Dio says he's a circus ringleader. That he took over from his dead father. Alice points-out the similarity with her.
→Sigma reminds them he already said he was a student. He was working on his PhD.
→Sigma says he doesn't know anyone else there, except maybe K since he is wearing a mask and has amnesia.
→Sigma asks if anyone know anything about Clover, Quark, Luna, & Phi?
→Alice says Clover is a student and waitresses/bartends at night. Sigma says Quark must be an elementary school student. Tenmyouji laughs and Alice questions him. He says he guesses a boy Quark's age would be in elementary school. She says he must not know much about Quark then. Tenmyouji tells her that if it makes her feel any better than she can believe that then. Dio says he knows Luna has some sort of medical license. They guess nurse. They ask Sigma about Phi. Sigma realises he barely knows anything about Phi. He thinks to himself that she seems more suspicious.
→Sigma wonders what they all have in common for Zero to kidnap them?
→Alice says they should keep looking around the facility instead of gossiping. Tenmyouji agrees. Dio asks where Sigma plans to look next.
→Sigma decides to go to the Lounge.
→In the Lounge Sigma meets Phi, Luna, & Clover.
→Luna & Sigma joke that she's a waitress.
→Clover asks in annoyance why he's there. Sigma says he was just checking it out.
→Sigma jokes that he feels like he's in a VIP room with 3 ladies, the bar, & couch. Clover asks if she can get him a drink. Sigma questions her age. She says she just turned 21. He says he would drink with her then, if it wasn't a bad idea. That this isn't a good situation to get drunk with. Clover says it seems like a time when people would want to. He agrees.
→Luna questions him. He says he has no intentions to drink, especially with his headache.
