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?

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.

→Alice met Clover a year ago.
→Phi works-out the anagram "WELCOME TO MY KINGDOM!" silly fast.

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.

→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).

(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..."

→Alice decides that this is enough talking on it. And that the cold sleep might be interesting but probably not useful to them.
→She suggests going back to the Warehouse to check-on the other team so they do.
→They get to the Floor B Warehouse first. After Luna says it looks like the Floor A Warehouse they see the White Chromatic Doors. They investigate and wonder if they are the next set of Chromatic Doors? Luna asks why they are all white and Alice agress they've always been different colours. Tenmyouji says they need to tell the other group.
→They go back to Floor A & Warehouse A.
→K is relieved to see the others. He says he was worried.
→Sigma asks what is going on?
→K says something has happened to Quark and Tenmyouji demands to know what.
→K says Quark collapsed suddenly. When they were searching their escape room.
→K tells Tenmyouji to hurry to the Infirmary. That Clover is monitoring him but his condition isn't stable.
→Tenmyouji rushes to the Yellow Door/Infirmary and the others follow.
→Quark is laying on the Infirmary's examination table. Tenmyouji tries to wake him up.
→Clover stops him. That Tenmyouji might make whatever he's sick with worse by being rough with him.
→Tenmyouji asks what to do then, that he has to save Quark!
→Dio questions why he is so frantic, that Quark might just simply be anaemic or such.
→Tenmyouji says that he doesn't, and this has never happened before. Dio stupidly says to just call an ambulance then and calm down.
→Tenmyouji is pissed-off.
→Phi says that the Infirmary is well equipped, especially for diagnostics. Clover says but that they don't have a doctor so that's not much good.
→Sigma says that they have Luna though (what kind of doctor are you studying to be, Sigma?).
→Phi ask about Luna, and Tenmyouji says he remembers Dio saying something about her (Luna is in the room? Why not acknowledge her?).
→Tenmyouji asks Luna if she has a medical license. Phi is surprised. Luna says yes, BUT--Tenmyouji interupts and urges her to help Quark.
→Luna looks around and points-out the ADAM scanner (she explains how it works). Sigma asks if that can diagnosis Quark. Luna believes it can.
→Phi tells her to hurry. And tell the others if she needs help.
→Luna scans Quark. The results show on the screen. Sigma doesn't understand it but Luna goes grim.
→Luna takes a moment to tell her findings. She is upset over them.
→Quark has a vital infection.
→Phi & Sigma go "Oh no...". Luna says, yes, it's Radical-6. The shocking revelation animation plays.
→Sigma asks Clover, K, Dio, Alice, & Tenmyouji if they've heard of it?
→They say yes. Dio told Alice & Tenmyouji, and Clover heard from Phi & Luna.
→Sigma thinks that Dio & Luna having explored the Infirmary first they must have seen the newspaper clipping Quark found.
→That everyone must have heard about it.
→Tenmyouji is in denial that Quark is infected, that there was no way. Sigma picks-up Tenmyouji's tone. That it really seems like Tenmyouji doesn't think Quark cpuld have and Sigma wonders if Tenmyouji knew about Radical-6 before everyone.
→Tenmyouji shouts asking about a cure.
→Luna says the ADAM lists an anti-viral serum called Axelavir. That it's the only cure. If they can inject Quark with some he should recover.
→Tenmyouji asks where that is in the Infirmary then? Dio says they found nothing like it when his group searched that room. Tenmyouji doesn't believe him.
→Tenmyouji asks Luna, and she apologies but confirms Dio.
→Tenmyouji asks about the other rooms. If Sigma found anything?!
→Sigma says no, that their area was just full of plants & such, nothing like medication.
→Tenmyouji asks K. K says their room was a laboratory [I haven't encountered that room yet!]. There was medicines &;chemicals, but no Axelavir. He apologises.
→Tenmyouji is crestfallen.
→Sigma asks Phi about the Treatment Center. She says he saw too that it only had those treatment pods.
→Sigma thinks on the pods.
→Sigma exclaims they should put Quark in one of them!

→Everyone goes quiet.
→Quark suddenly stands up.
→Tenmyouji is relieved.
→But Quark yells at him to get away from him.
→Quark pulls-out a fucking scalpel.
→Quark is struggling & desperate sounding. He tells Tenmyouji he is sorry but he has to...

→But Sigma tackles Quark.
→Quark fights Sigma's grip and Sigma says he seems stronger than he should.
Sigma asks others to help.
→Dio, K, & Phi help restrain Quark.
→Sigma yells at Tenmyouji. Tenmyouji is in a daze and Sigma snaps him out of it.
→Quark is screaming at the others to let him go. That he has to get out of his body so his soul can escape. He begs for someone to kill him. Eventually just devolving into desperate screams.
→Sigma questions Quark's sanity.
→Sigma finally tells someone to take the scalpel from Quark. Sigma doesn't know who does but Quark doesn't even register it's gone.
→Sigma asks what to do?! How to calm him. Phi asks if the Infirmary has any tranquillisers. Luna says yes, but it's Soporil β...
→Clover points-out that's the one in their Bracelets.
→Phi says to administer that. Tenmyouji is worried. Phi says it will be alright.
→Luna finds some and has it ready, Phi tells her when. Quark tries to fight but Luna inject it into Quark's leg.
→Phi pants when Quark finally knocks-out.
→Luna checks the ADAM and says Quark shows to be in a deep sleep and his basic vitals are normal.
→Sigma asks how long the anesthetic will last. Luna says a few hours.
→Dio comments on how strong Quark was. Luna says that's probably due to Radical-6. That the virus probably attack the reasoning part of the brain so Quark was using all the strength he had without limiting it.
→Dio asks her how come she knows so much about Radical-6. Luna says she just saw the newspaper clipping and knows as much as the rest.
→Sigma asks if she is lying. She says no, why would she lie? That she's seen other viruses do similar so she was making an educated guess.
→Tenmyouji asks what to do?!
→Clover asks if the suicide attempt was due to Radical-6 too. Luna thinks it does.
→Sigma asks what kind of virus Radical-6 is?
→Everyone goes quiet.
→Sigma notices Tenmyouji looking at something. It's Alice.
→Sigma wonders if she had taken the scalpel from Quark to protect him or not. That her body manner looks as unstable as Quark just did.
→Alice says blankly that they are all dead. That they are all going to die. That terrorist will soon start biological warfare.
→Dio questions her. She more desperately goes that the virus is going to kill everyone. That she'd rather die here.
→Sigma calls to her but she bolts out the door. He runs after her. Thinking that everyone was too shocked to grab her.
→But Sigma loses Alice's trail. He stands there trying to decide what way to go.
→The others catch-up. They are mad Sigma lost Alice.
→Phi suggests splitting-up to look for her. K agrees..
→But Phi says not to yell at her or provoke Alice if they find her.
→Phi says that Tenmyouji should stay behind with Quark. He agrees.
→Sigma goes to the Lounge. She isn't there.
→Sigma goes to the Treatment Center for some reason. But she isn't there. He doesn't say "suicide" but panics that he needs to find her before she does something "bad" like Quark would have.
→Sigma runs to B. Garden.

→Phi is there crouching over Alice.
→Phi says she's glad Sigma showed-up. That she just got there and found Alice like this. That she was just going to attempt to carry Alice to the Infirmary.
→Sigma asks if she is still alive. Phi says she just seems unconscious.
→Sigma asks about the scalpel. Phi hasn't seen it. She figures Alice dropped it somewhere.
→Phi tells Sigma to help her carry Alice.
→Sigma thinks that Alice is lighter than expected and they can jog while carrying her. Sigma sends Phi to gather everyone else.
→Luna says to listen to her.
→The ADAM lists the results
→ Tenmyouji asks what they are.
→Luna says Alice has Radical-6. The shocking revelation animation plays.
→Clover asks what to do?!

→Luna is explains that some people are able to fight-off Radical-6 That that is the basis for Axelavir.
→Sigma asks about the pods.
→Luna says she wondered about if they could treat Radical-6 too so took a look at them. The pods can't cure it. But that they could suppress the symptoms.
→Tenmyouji asks if that would help any though. She says it would.
→Tenmyouji asks someone to carry Alice and go to the Treatment Center then. He picks up Quark.
→Quark stirs a bit and then a bottle falls out of his pocket. It's a bottle of Axelavir.
→Everyone-especially Luna-is excited that they can cure the Radical -6.
→Dio asks why Quark had the bottle on him.
→K wonders if Quark found it earlier when their group explored the Laboratory. He noticed Quark pocket something. But Quark collapsed immediately after and K didn't check his pockets. K forgot about it because of the panic.
→Tenmyouji says not to bother with the why. He tells Luna to hurry up and inject Quark with it then. Clover butts in about Alice. Tenmyouji says that it doesn't matter who goes first.
→Luna says she can't administer it. That the bottle is only one dose. She explains that how the injection gun works is that it needs to have a full bottle in it to function.
→Dio says they can't split the dose then. Luna confirms.
→Phi checks Quark for more on him. He doesn't have anything else.

Infirmary ■LOCK No. 04■ There isn't enough anti-viral medication!:
→Sigma remembers the immunoglobulin note from the B. Garden. He flashbacks to Luna explaining immunoglobulin and how some people are able to fight-off Radical-6.
→And then flashes to the Laboratory on the Red Door route. He remembers the IG Replicator there. He remembers how they had no idea what it was.
→Sigma exclaims about the IG Replicator in the Laboratory. That it's an immunoglobulin replicator machine. That since Axelavir is made of antibiotics they can duplicate it there.
→K asks Sigma how he knows about the machine. Clover confirms there is an "IG Replicator" there.
→Sigma says that he saw it when he was there.
→K asks when that was.
→Sigma is lost for words.
→Dio suggests that it was probably when Sigma was looking for Alice.
→Sigma thinks to himself that he doesn't think he was ever actually in the Laboratory. He wonders how he knew about the machine then.
→Luna says if there really is an IG replicator in the Laboratory then they can duplicate the Axelavir.
→Phi says that they should check it then. They agree. But Sigma tells Luna to stay behind and watch over Quark & Alice. She accepts that.
→K, Clover, Tenmyouji, Phi, Sigma, & Dio go through the Red Door to the Laboratory.
→Tenmyouji asks if this is the lab. K confirms. Tenmyouji asks where that machine is then.
→Sigma goes right to it and shows them.
→Phi asks if is will work. Sigma thinks it will.
→Clover tells him to hurry. And he tells everyone to cool it and let him concentrate.
→Sigma puts the Axelavir vial in the machine. He goes to explain what he expects to happen. Tenmyouji says for him to just do it.
→The machine makes noises.
→Sigma asks if it worked hesitantly.
→Dio says for him to look at the now full vial on the other side of the replicator. K says the original Axelavir doesn't look like any is emptied out of it either. Clover asks if that means it worked. Tenmyouji says it would have been bad if it hadn't.
→Sigma goes to take both out of the machine to hurry to the Infirmary.
→He end-up dropping them though. One shatters and the other rolls under a table.
→Tenmyouji & Clover get angry at him. But Sigma says that they'll just duplicate another bottle with the unbroken vial.
→Phi crawls under the table to pick-up the vial but stops and is all "Um, guys...".
→Tenmyouji takes that to mean that the bottle did break. Phi confirms that the vial is intact. She shows them.
→Dio asks her what is wrong then.
→Phi tells them to look under the table.
→She crawls out and they look. A bomb with 02 [NUMBER 02 BOMB] on it is stuck on the underside of the table.
→Everyone is shocked. Dio says there are 2 bombs now then. Tenmyouji says K was right. Clover confirms that and K sadly agrees.
→Phi asks if the bomb was there when Clover, K, & Quark were there escaping.
→K says it wasn't. Clover says they searched all over the room.
→Phi suggests it was placed when everyone was searching for Alice then.
→Dio asks who would. Sigma says it could have been any of them. Tenmyouji says he was still at the Infirmary with Quark. Dio asks if that's his alibi then. Tenmyouji says yes, and Quark couldn't have placed the bomb either.
→K says Tenmyouji can't prove he didn't place the bomb. Tenmyouji yells at him that he wouldn't leave Quark.

→Clover finds something else under the table. A magenta memory card.
→ K asks if whoever planted the bomb left it. That it wasn't there beforehand.
→Sigma wonders if the person dropped it by mistake? K figures it probably was dropped.
→Tenmyouji asks what it has on it, Sigma asks Clover for it and he looks about the room for something that could read it.
→The announcement for 10 minutes left in Ambidex Game voting plays.
→Dio & Tenmyouji say they have all they needed here and that everyone should go.
→K asks what to do about the bomb.
→Dio says to just leave it. K remembers how Alice said not to touch them. Phi says to worry about the bombs later.
→Phi suggests going to give the Axelavir to Alice & Quark at the Infirmary first then going to vote. Clover agrees.
→They head back to the Infirmary.
→Luna injects Quark & Alice with the Axelavir [I'm annoyed they only copied 2 vials given how shit has gone down before on other routes!]. She says it might take time to work but they'll recover.
→Luna had moved them both to the Infirmary cots while everyone was getting the Axelavir. Sigma ponders how peaceful they look now.
→Tenmyouji asks Luna to confirm they'll recover.
→Luna says she analysed the vials and both were real Axelavir.
→K says it's just a matter of time then.
→Clover is relieved. Sigma pats her on the back.
→ The 5 minutes left in polling announcement plays.
→Phi tells them they need to get there fast. Dio complains about how much they're hurrying. Sigma leads everyone back.
→When they get to the Warehouse A they notice Tenmyouji didn't follow.
→Sigma asks where he is and Dio says he asked him before they left. Tenmyouji decided to stay with Quark & Alice.
→K says that Phi will be against just Dio then.
→Phi is disgusted. Dio says she doesn't need to worry as he will vote Ally. He asks her why that is. She says because she only has 1BP. Dio says he wants to win but not enough to kill for it.
→Luna says Phi can't really vote Betray either because Tenmyouji only has 1BP too. If she did she'd kill him too.
→Clover says K & her are against each other too because Quark is unconscious. Sigma asks how many BP they both have. 6BP each. Sigma & Luna explain how if one votes Betray & the other Ally then one will have 9BP so that's a hard vote.
→Clover asks K to trust her. K agrees. That both voting Betray to be safe would gain them no points anyway. Both voting Ally gives 2BP to both. Clover asks him to promise and K does.
→1 minute left plays.
→Dio, K, Clover, & Phi hurry to the Ambidex Rooms. Luna & Sigma follow after watching everyone else enter.

AB Game Round 2:
→30 seconds announcement plays.
→Luna says Alice is still in the Infirmary so they should pick Ally.
→Sigma agrees that since Alice will default to Ally anyway it isn't fair to Betray someone sick.
→Luna smiles and Sigma loves it. He grins back and knows what he's going to do.

AB Game Round 2 Ally:
→Sigma pushes Ally.
→The voting ending announcement plays and the doors open.
→Sigma and Luna agree to go look at the results.
→K (& Quark) picked Betray to Clover's Betray. Dio (& Tenmyouji) picked Betray to Phi's Betray. Sigma & Luna picked Ally and Alice has Betray.
→The Bracelet Points are:
Alice = 9BP
K & Clover = 6BP
Quark & Dio = 5BP
Luna = 3BP
Phi & Tenmyouji = 1BP
Sigma = -1BP
→Sigma is confused. He questions how Alice could have voted?
→But he never finds-out. The needles in his Bracelet inject.
→He feels the Soporil β take effect. His legs give-out.
→Phi starts shouting his name. Clover urges him to get up. K & Dio shout his name too. Luna asks why this happened.
→Sigma forces his eyes open and sees that the door to an AB Room he saw no-one enter was open. Alice was standing in the doorway.
→Sigma starts to lose consciousness while wondering how she could be there. Did she run there and get in last? Even so why vote Betray?
→But he loses consciousness. "Then the darkness closed over my mind as well, and my questions were gone forever."

I actually figured picking Ally was going to Bad End given the FLOW length but Luna's smile made me go down that road. Just her optimism.

AB Game Round 2 Betray ⇒ B. Garden ■ LOCK No. 05■ What is the long string of numbers? ⇒ B. Garden Decode the code! ⇒ Warehouse B bomb number 3 deactivation code ⇒ Alice End

AB Game Round 2 Betray:
→Sigma pushes Betray.
→The voting ending announcement plays and the doors open.
→Luna is so upset. She asks him what happened to not Betraying someone who isn't voting [as we learned before Alice did vote].
→Sigma can't think of anything to say to her. Even he doesn't understand why he picked Betray.
→Sigma thinks the vote felt like his subconscious was controlling him even. Or an evil spirit.
→Sigma says they should go see the results.
→Luna says they already know what they'll be. "The look in her eyes was more painful than any punch I'd ever taken.".
→Sigma races to the screen to avoid Luna & the guilt.
→K (& Quark) picked Betray to Clover's Betray. Dio (& Tenmyouji) picked Betray to Phi's Betray. Sigma & Luna picked Betray and Alice has Betray.
→The Bracelet Points are:
K, Clover, & Alice = 6BP
Quark, Dio, & Luna = 5BP
Phi, Tenmyouji, & Sigma = 1BP
→Sigma is confused. He looks around in disbelief.
→He wonders how Alice, who is supposed to be unconscious in the Infirmary, could vote Betray.
→Sigma exclaims it's not possible but looks over to the Ambidex Rooms and sees Alice in the doorway of one. Him & Luna had watched everyone enter and no-one had entered that one.
→As he tried to make sense she started walking towards the group.
→Everyone gasps.
→Alice stops in front of Sigma seemingly back to normal. She asks if he thought he'd get some easy BP points. Not easy when he has to look at the victim though. She calls him a coward.
→Sigma says she is too for voting Betray (after all he'd be dead if he picked Ally).
→Sigma asks why she is there. And she thanks him, honestly, for giving her Axelavir.
→Luna says she should still be out from the Soporil β. Alice says she still is groggy. She feels horrible but her training makes her more resistant to anesthetics. She figures who kidnapped them knew that because her dose was so high (is that why Clover took much longer to wake-up? Because they were taken together).
→She woke-up, Tenmyouji told her what happened, and she raced to vote.
→Luna says just to Betray?
→Alice says yes. And it was the right choice. She would have lost 2 BP if she didn't.
→Luna asks her if it was self-defence then. Alice tries to say yes, but Sigma interrupts.
→Sigma yells at her for trying to kill him (1BP) so she could get 9BP and escape.
→Alice says she knew Sigma would vote Betray. He calls bullshit.
→Alice says 2 other people tried to murder too. Look at the Betray results.
→Dio & Phi, that Dio tried to kill Phi and if Dio had voted Ally Tenmyouji would have died.
→Luna wonders if she's being rude but K & Clover tried to trick each other. It failed though.
→Sigma realises his results weren't the only one, it was Betray for everyone.
→No-one trusted anyone.
→He wonders if it's because of the bombs. Or something else?
→Sigma decides if they continue they'll never gain any BP and escape. They'll stay trapped.
→Sigma tries to voice that but gets ignored.
→K apologises for it but says he needs time alone to think.
→Dio & Phi excuse themselves too.
→Alice says everyone is only out for themselves. She tells Clover to come with her through the Yellow Door.
→Clover follows and seems super excited Alice is okay.

→Luna seems sad everyone is gone.
→Sigma asks if she is going to leave too. Luna says she'll stay. That despite Sigma picking Betray she still believes in him.
→She says his hand might have slipped. Sigma starts to cry looking at her.
→Luckily the Ambidex Doors & announcement distracts.
→It announces the Star round for Round 3. That the Star keycards have no limit and that players can keep opening the Ambidex Gates as many times as they wish.
→Luna says they can keep playing the Ambidex Game as many times as they wish too.
→Luna asks to see Sigma's Bracelet. To check the colour/pairing.
→Sigma is a Cyan Pair. Luna is a Magenta Pair.
→Sigma wonders what everyone else is. Luna says she can't guess.
→Sigma checks the time left before the Chromatic Doors open. 81 minutes.
→Sigma asks her what to do. She says everyone else is off on their own.
→Sigma says in more ways than one. That they need to start trusting each other. That the Ambidex Game is pointless like this.
→Luna suggests that they need something to unite them.
→Sigma says they already have escaping for that. But everyone still picks Betray (even him).
→Luna asks what about a common enemy then. Like the one placing bombs.
→Sigma thinks it might work if they can figure-out who that is. Luna agrees. She asks if he has any clues.
→Sigma remembers the memory card!
→He shows it to Luna and she asks what it is. He explains. But they need something to read it.
→She's disheartened for a moment but remembers something. That the Infirmary had another memory card and she thinks the computer can read this one too. They rush there.
→And find Tenmyouji, Alice, Clover, & and unconscious Quark.
→Alice is pissed-off they are there. Sigma goes to yell back but decides to be honest to help build trust for everyone.
→Sigma explains about the memory card & 02 bomb.
→Clover & Tenmyouji tell him to try it!
→Sigma puts it in the screen and a bunch of letters show. 6 rows of 22 each row, the first 2 rows repeating:
"C Q U J H N M T E O N E R A X D F M I O V P
→Sigma asks if It's a code. Tenmyouji doesn't think it's random but has no idea the use.
→Alice asks Clover if she saw this before, in her training? Clover has.
→Tenmyouji tells them to share it.
→Alice thinks it's a message from a terrorist organisation. Luna asks what. Alice says the Myrmidons. [The group Dio is in; SEE the Dio End route]
→Sigma thinks he's heard of them somewhere before.
→Luna asks who they are. Alice says they want to end and destroy human civilisation.
→Tenmyouji asks if she thinks the code is theirs.
→Alice thinks it is but they have lots of codes.
→Clover & Luna ask if the bomb was set by the Myrmidons then?
→Alice says it's likely.
→Sigma says he has lots of questions for Alice but first what does the code say. She doesn't know.
→She can't decode it without the key. It would have centuries to decode without a key.
→Tenmyouji asks Clover. She says she doesn't know either. He seems surprised.
→Sigma asks Alice what kind of job Clover & her have. She doesn't want to answer. He asks what she meant by fighting enemies and such.
→Alice says she won't answer because Sigma might be a terrorist.
→Sigma tries to plead that he isn't [and given that all Myrmidons are clones of Left, Sigma isn't].
→He asks her to at least tell them about the Myrmidons because they need more information to help everyone escape. To find-out the culprit.
→Alice apologises and runs out of the room.

→Sigma catches-up with her in B. Garden.
→Alice asks how much longer he is going to follow her. He says until she gives him information.
→She asks why he doesn't just ask Clover.
→Sigma saus it's because they've been on teams together both previous Rounds and he's curious about her.
→Alice hides a blush.
→They go for a walk in the B. Garden and sit on the by pond bench.
→That sit in silence and then she asks if Sigma hates her.
→He asks why and she admits to trying to kill him in the AB Game.
→Alice admits to being terrified. Kidnapped and forced to play the Nonary Game [this is poor Clover's THIRD Nonary Game where this has happened].
→And then the bombs. She wanted out of there so bad.
→And then when everyone rushed to the Infirmary for Quark she started having Radical-6 symptoms [See Security Office After Escape]. That she doesn't remember anything else until she woke-up.
→She was so scared and didn't even think that her Betray could kill Sigma. That she just wanted to escape. That if it had killed him she doesn't think she would have cared.
→She says she's horrible. She tells Sigma to hate her and kill her.
→Sigma says no-one is killing anyone and he doesn't hate her.
→Alice starts crying.
→Sigma wipes one of her tears away with his hand.
→She asks why he's doing this...and then says he reminds her of her father.
→Sigma asks if that's who she's after, the enemies who killed her father. Yes. He asks if they are involved with the Myrmidons.
→Alice asks Sigma not to tell Clover she cried.
→Sigma laughs it off but she says if he does she'll tell him her information.
→Sigma promises.
→She confirms and he denies there was any crying.

→Alice begins. Her father is Egyptian & mother French. They met in Egypt, got married, had Alice, then moved to the United States of America when Alice was 3. Her father was a cloning scientist. He had gotten a job at an American laboratory. On Alice's 9TH birthday her mother showed-up at school and took her out of it. She didn't say anything to her on it but when they got home lots of police were there. Alice realised something bad had happened when her father never came home that night. She learned 3 years later that her father's laboratory had been attacked by terrorists and him kidnapped. Her mother stayed & raised her in America despite the family being across the world. She says her mother was where she wished her father hadn't been kidnapped the most. But Alice was good at academics and got a scholarship. She moved-up and got a job with the Department of Defence to try to find her father. She got a job with the SOIS (Special Office of Internal Security) that specialised n threats to the country. Her mother didn't support this but didn't interfere. Alice learned that the Myrmidons had kidnapped her father. That the Myrmidons did human cloning and wanted to create a new race superior humans. They only know that Left is the name of the commander but not his age or appearance (explaining why she doesn't know Dio is a Left!clone). They know the Myrmidons are funded by Free the Soul. But they can't connect that cult's leader-Brother-to terrorist activities. That Brother is a frail but clever elderly man. She didn't learn anything else until she heard Myrmidons/Free the Soul were doing something in the Nevada desert. But her car broke-down on the way there. But just then a big SUV driven by Clover drove by and picked her up. The vehicle had 4 other people in it. They shocked her by telling her that they had just escaped a kidnapping to that very building she was headed to and that they were chasing the kidnappers. She convinced them to take her along but they lost the trail (fucking Akane & Santa! Escaping mysteriously like that!). So Alice takes the vehicle group to the SOIS instead of the police. The Myrmidons weren't involved but Free the Soul was with missing children 9 years prior. The group also had a man tied-up in the trunk of the SUV (she calls him "H" I know he's Ace/Gentarou Hongou from 999). This man and his pharmaceutical company was responsible for kidnapping the children and it was controlled by Free the Soul. And Clover was one of the original kids too. The man was committed to the cult (I didn't think Ace was for more than his own goals). The 16 children had been kidnapped to experiment with the morphogenetic field and the kids access to it. She explains it's people with an ability to resonant their consciousness with other people. SOIS had used it before but it was news that Free the Soul was too. They didn't want Brother learning to control that power. SOIS also learned that the Myrmidons were planning a huge biological attack. Given Clover's morphogenetic field ability she was recruited to help. Clover was put in training and was assigned to Alice's command. He first mission was to infiltrate a Myrmidon cloning facility. Alice also thought she might get a lead on her father. But the mission was a trap and Clover was captured. Alice went to the facility but it was empty. She found Clover tied to a chair in the basement though and the fresh corpse of her father. The Myrmidons had beaten him to death as a threat to Clover to tell her organisation to stay out of their affairs unless she wanted the same fate. Alice wonders if they knew who Alice was and her father was a more direct message to discourage her. But it made her will stronger and she had at least rescued Clover. On her father's corpse was found 8's & 9's on his arm, carved by him into it. On his chest was "I love you, Alice.". She promised herself vengeance for her father. The numbers turned-out to be geographic coordinates. A chemical factory. It turned-out to be the Myrmidon headquarters. She thinks her father knew he was going to die and who would find him. December 25TH, 2028 was the operation date. They had planned and researched extensively to succeed. But on December 22ND her & Clover were kidnapped by someone in a gasmask.

→Sigma asks if after that they ended-up here. Alice confirms and says that's all her information on her & the Myrmidons. Except a few details.
→Alice suggests they go back now.
→Sigma says he has one more question. She seems shocked. He asked who here is a Myrmidon.
→That if one of their codes was found by a bomb they must be responsible and placing them.
→Sigma asks if she has any clues. She says if she could decode the message maybe, but no key. Sigma asks what she means and she explains that Myrmidons usually have a long string of numbers as a code key.
→Sigma thinks.

B. Garden ■ LOCK No. 05■ What is the long string of numbers?:
→Sigma flashes to the route where Dio, him, & Phi escape. And Dio sending that message.
→Sigma repeats "78153 61098 83809 42419 90551" from that outloud for Alice.
→Alice & Sigma are surprised. Sigma thinks that the numbers just seemed to appear in his head.
→Alice asks him to repeat that. She works-out that that is 198449351 to the third power with prime factor decomposition.
→Sigma asks if she's reducing an integer to a series of prime numbers and multiplying them together. Like with 30 being 2x3x5, Alice says he probably learned that in junior high school.
→He asks if she did tgat math in her head. She seems annoyed he would question that. He says that's impossible. But she reminds him that she's better than most at mathematics.
→She points-out that he just recited a long string of numbers. She asks where he heard it and he doesn't know what to say because it just came to him.
→Alice says nevermind butbthat she's sure that's the Myrmidon key. Because they often use prime factors and there aren't many 25 digit numbers that are third powers to prime numbers.
→She thinks that his number is a specific one. He asks her to explain. She says to look at it's prime factors. He still is confused.
→She asks him to remember the memory card code. Sigma repeats what he thinks he remembers of the first row, and then the second. And then that they repeat.
→She is amazed at his mad memory skillz. That they could use that back at...and she cuts herself off.
→Sigma tells her to continue about the code.
→She says to use 198449351 to find the correct letters.

B. Garden Decode the code!:
→Sigma asks hoooow.
→She says that the first digit in the number is "1" so to take the 1ST letter in the code so "C". "9" is next so 9 letters over from the 1ST, then 8.
→Sigma tries to work it out. CO... The it gives a puzzle. It says you'll get 6 chances to try but fail and the game ends. :-[
COMPLETED is what I got.
→Sigma tells her it. That it might be "completed completed completed" too since the code repeats.
→Alice asks if he's sure. And he is. She asks what it means and he thinks it means "mission completed".
→He starts babbling about and remembering the transmitter. She asks him about it but he isnlost in thought. Memories wash in like waves washing sand away to reveal gems.
→Sigma has flashes to a lot of stuff from the old woman's corpse to Luna using the ADAM. He remembers Dio in the protection suit reciting about Brother. That his mission was complete and he had saved mankind.
→Sigma gets pissed at himself for remembering numbers but not that Dio was a leader of the Myrmidons. That he must be planting the bombs.
→Alice starts yelling at him to snap out of it. To explain.
→Sigma worries she'd think he was crazy and not believe him if he tried to explain what he remembered.
→She accuses him of being a Myrmidon.
→Sigma says if he was why reveal himself like this, she accepts that.

→Everyone but Luna & Quark are by the White Chromatic Doors.
→Sigma asks why and checks his Bracelet to see 45 minutes left.
→He asks how she knows about the White Chromatic Doors. She says from Tenmyouji. That he said he'd show her them.
→Alice asks about Luna & Quark. Clover confirms she stayed in the Infirmary with him.
→Clover says Phi & K were already down there when they arrived.
→And Phi, Dio, & Tenmyouji got into a fight over the last AB Game Round. That Phi picked Betray despite Tenmyouji's 1BP. Dio picked Betray so he got drawn into the fight too. Alice says Phi only has 1BP too so it sounds like a valid choice.
→Clover says to come with her to help K break the fight up.
→They hurry there. When they arrive everyone is still hella tense, even K.
→Sigma gives Alice a knowing look and they go over to the arguing group.
→Sigma says Clover got him & Alice. That everyone needs to calm down.
→Tenmyouji calls him a dick and says it's about his life.
→Sigma says fighting isn't helping that they need to trust each other.
→Tenmyouji doesn't want to trust her. She says she had no choice with it being Dio voting. Tenmyouji says it was good Dio picked Betray or Tenmyouji would be dead. Phi says it would be her if she hadn't picked Betray too.
→K tells then to stop. My precious cinnamon bun. That Sigma is right.
→Dio tells K that he tried to Betray Clover too and escape. K says at least Clover wouldn't have died if so.
→Dio says he only voted Betray to protect Tenmyouji.
→Sigma has had enough of this shit. He roars for them to shut-up.
→Everyone goes quiet and glares at him.
→Sigma says he knows who planted the bombs.
→Shock! Alice asks if that is about his ramblings earlier. Sigma says yeah. Tenmyouji tells him to say. K pleads for Sigma to explain.
→Sigma says the culprit will admit it himself. He says Dio is the one.
→Dio laughs it off and asks for evidence.
→Sigma says he is just stating a fact. Dio asks what fact.
→Sigma knows taunting him isn't enough. Dio is good at lying.
→Sigma says that he, himself, is actually frm Free the Soul. Dio asks if that's a "hippie shoe company".
→Sigma starts calling Dio "Left" and says that Brother had sent Sigma here to monitor Dio.
→Dio cracks his façade a bit.
→Sigma takes that andand runs with it. Spouting-out every Myrmidon & Free the Soul fact he knew.
→Sigma then gives the code key.
→Sigma asks Dio hownhe could know all this if he wasn't from Free the Soul?
→Dio cracks.
→Sigma says Brother suspects Dio will betray them. Dio starts yelling that Brother trusts him! Sigma asks him to confirm that on the transmitter outside.
→Dio says Brother wouldn't have made him the Myrmidon leader if he didn't trust him.
→Sigma asks Dio to repeat that. Dio angrily does. And Sigma laughs. Dio realises he's been caught.
→Sigma says he has never met Brother. Dio asks him how he knew that then, and Sigma says he was "divinely inspired".
