and that's not even its final form
That there Honkit's lookin a bit, eh... Sickly there.
Maybe take it to the circus more, let it visit it's distant kin.
Or try giving it some circus snacks. Those usually help.

Quiet. Good for an unusual opinion. Doesn't talk much.

I purposefully removed this from the actual post I made in reference to meeting the "NEW FRIEND?????PROBABLY NOT"

But I thought it would amuse someone, and still happened, in my heart. Cause Internal Headcannon. I mean Canon. I'm certainly not containing any weapons within my noggin, no sirree. ' <'

Spoiler :
Furious Keyboard Sounds Wrote:BEGINNING DATA COLLECTION.

Humanoid. Possibly Flesh-Based. Fascinating Design.
Somewhat threatening appearance based solely on evolutionary color choices.
Equipped with (2) Legs(?) and (2) Pseudopods(?)/Tentacles(?)/Tendrils(?).

Combat Prowess: Undetermined, unable to properly assess with current materials, equipment and units at disposal.

Current Status: Requesting more resources allocated to the Council Ambassador department so we can properly perform our role within the company.

Notes: Visitor Aubrey has been incredibly helpful and remains pleasant, despite the varied and discordant voices that the Council brings. This unit will continue to hold it's post, and is still taking care to watch what it says in the future, lest we accidentally insult another member of the Council again.

(Still not-sorry about the skateboard comment.)

Tinny, Energetic Music Wrote:TechMind Interdimensional Manual (Chapter ???? - Emergency Codes)

All new Techmind Employees: Please make sure you have thoroughly read this section, failure to properly identify a code sequence could result in damage to yourself, or worse, your co-workers, or Techmind Corporate Properties.

Safety is everyone's job. If you do not do your job properly, you will be demoted. Remember, there are always openings for new [ZEROES], so be a [HERO], Remember your codes!.

[Section 1 - Signal Band Identification]
Red, Green, Blue, Cyan, Magenta, Yellow and Black.

These are the colors that make up everything within the In-Between's myriad dimensional splendors. However, at TMI, these colors are also used to identify emergency code vectors! Let's break them down into easy to remember little bits, so that your storage units can safely keep hold on them.

?Red?
Spoiler :
Red is the lowest tier emergency code. This is often invoked for only the lowest class emergencies like:

The printer is out of toner and needs it's toner-heart replaced.
Your screen has run out of magic smoke and needs it's cartridge to be recharged.
Someone has taken your stapler, and you would like it back before you burn the entire mother down.

Red messages are like dimensional industry standards: Suggestions! These will be passed to whoever is directly in charge of you to disregard at their leisure!

Now, you may think that the coffee maker needing a new soul-gem is a Red tier, but you'll be relieved to hear that it has recently been moved up to:
.Green.
Spoiler :
Green is invoked for emergencies that, left unchecked, will result in discomfort and loss of productivity for yourselves and others around you!

Coffee maker needs a new soul-gem!
The Cafeteria is serving tuna casserole!
Your coworker traded in company credit for a new stereo, but carelessly decided not to invest in a headset!

These will be passed to whoever is directly in charge of you, but at a higher priority than Red. Additionally, if there is a job specifically suited to fixing the problem that is being relayed within your message, it will be automatically relayed to them!

That's right! Your boss will be horrifyingly aware that it WAS the last mangled scream of the coffee maker they heard, but relieved to know that your floors Coffee Technician will be along as soon as possible to sort things out.

What's that?

What if someone or something is threatening harm to yourself, co-workers, or company property? Well it's time to upgrade to:
!Blue!
Spoiler :
Be advised, Blue is only to be invoked when you are sure there is a threat to yourself or other properties of TMI.

For good reason too! Let's say that you are on your way to your work-box when you are accosted by a [Tier 4] Threat, like a Howling Gut Snake!

After getting behind cover, and drawing your company allocated combat prod, make sure to pull out your message prism and jam on the Blue! A team of combat ready security units will be dispatched to your position immediately!

Now, in the case of a Howling Gut Snake, maybe you won't survive the encounter long enough for the team to get there, but know that every member of the TMI family carries at least 18 different sensor tags within them at all times! The security team will find that Howling Gut Snake, eviscerated it, and retrieve your memory drive to be remounted in the health center!

Additionally, if the original dispatch team is somehow destroyed, or find that they are unable to deal with the threat, they are capable of immediately escalating the problem to a proper level of firepower!

Do be warned however, after several incidents of people using their message prism to trigger Blue Emergencies on disliked co-workers, we have instated a one strike policy!

If your Blue Emergency turns out to be a Blue Dud, you will instantly strike out and be terminated on the spot! Not to worry though, your memory drive will be taken to a health center where you will be remounted, so that you may be properly punished for wasting company time and resources!
Now we move on to the truly important codes. TMI legal wants to be absolutely clear: Triggering one of these WILL get you the attention you were looking for, even if it is not the attention of the people who you wanted it FROM.

⏰CYAN⏰
Spoiler :
Cyan. The first of the four horsemen.

That's a joke of course, ha ha.

But do not take this joke lightly. If you send a Cyan Signal, It is because you have information that needs to be seen by someone important.

Note the alarm-clock symbols. A Cyan-Frequency Message will force an alert onto the highest level of authority your job allows you.

Before you go asking what the harm in this could be: Note that if you are reading this, and thus, are above [Tier 0], firing a Cyan-Frequency Message will ring the console of the Building Manager.
That's right. The Big Screen.

Now, for being such an important and drastic measure, it is important to understand what separates this from the previous and future frequencies.

Note that the top of the lesser frequencies is used to summon security to your location. Cyan is NOT a way to expedite a stronger security response. You will learn about where that is. Cyan is for the transmission of sensitive information.

Is one of your coworkers possibly a danger? Have you just received highly sensitive data while doing your very important job? Anything that you think should be seen by Important Eyes is for Cyan.

Now, despite all the scary pretext, it is to be noted that the punishment for misusing Cyan is entirely on said entity. This could be a revoking of priority communications, this could be demotion, this could be immediate and painless execution at the hands of your nearest security officer. It could also be just a slap on the wrist. Just make sure that if you are sending a Cyan, that you would want nobody but only the most important people you can think of seeing this information first.

Moving on.
⏹MAGENTA⏹
Spoiler :
Magenta.

If you have been reading your TMI History Handbook, you will know that Magenta is, for everyone who can remember such a time, a very dangerous color.

Magenta was the color of the blood of the Mimics, who sowed mistrust and hate throughout the entirety of the time Before the First Visitor.
It was never discovered what their goal in goading us into war against other dimensions was, but we all sustained terrible casualties.

To this end, note the Stop Symbol on each side of Magenta. A Magenta-Frequency is used for only one thing:

A Magenta-Frequency Approval will immediately sever power to your data-complex, eject all connected data and energy transmission cables to any connecting buildings, from both sides, and a few moments later, activate the Magnetic Coils, irreversibly and permanently flash frying every data storage unit in the building.

This does, unfortunately, include your own memory drive. Of course, we keep backups of everybody offsite at all times, so you will be restored at your most recent time-of-save.

If you need to ask why one would need to employ such drastic measures, a Magenta-Frequency code is something you probably don't even have access to. That being said, there is two very important safeguards in place, to prevent misuse of this system.

The First is that Magenta-Frequency requires Two Validations.
The Second is not something you need to worry about, unless you are the one sending the Magenta-Frequency, at which point you will be made aware of it when you receive your Mag-Code.

You may notice this document is getting increasingly dark. If you feel the need to avert your eyes, you may have someone else read the rest of this document out to you, but you must understand the last two codes. They are the most dire, and you must know what to do in a situation, should one ever arise.
⚠Yellow⚠
Spoiler :
What could be more dangerous than Magenta, you ask? An entire building, wiped to the ground, will all hands on deck, all that information, research and precious resources lost?

You will have found this handbook inside your desk, in an unnecessarily large drawer. Underneath, you will have found a magnetic lock that has no obvious way of opening it.

In the event of a Yellow-Frequency, that drawer will unlock.

Inside you will find four things.

A Black Box upgrade
A Backpack containing all the essentials you will need to survive for a week without assistance from others
A TMI Military-Grade Combat Shell upgrade
and A loaded TMI Military-Grade Morphgun that you can configure to match your preferred form of firearm as discovered during your employee orientation.

Install the upgrades. Configure your Morphgun. Put on the Backpack.

Run.

Instructions and information will be updated to you as possible, via further Yellow-Frequency communications, beamed directly to your combat shell.
☠BLACK☠
Spoiler :
TechMind Interdimensional values it's employees above all else. You are the circuits that keep our machines running. That is why the Yellow-Frequency exists, to make sure that you are prepared, at all times, to flee TMI company grounds, and survive, at all costs.

If you receive a BLACK-FREQUENCY, it is probably already too late.

For further information, please register your ID-CODE here.
Spoiler :
However, if you are still functional at this point, the Yellow-Frequency drawer will unlock. Take the things inside.

At the bottom of each building is a room. Receiving a BLACK-FREQUENCY immediately imprints you with a code that will allow you in.

Inside you will find an armory with as much equipment as you could possibly carry, along with Combat Frames, Exosuits, and a station where you can back yourself up one last time.

In the event of a BLACK-FREQUENCY, TMI would not sully it's good name by asking you to stay and defend it's grounds. Take whatever you can carry, anything you need, and survive.

If survival is impossible, there is one last thing located at the center of the Armory.

A Pre-Visitor warhead, used for Dimension-To-Dimension combat. It will reduce the building, the surrounding buildings, and Visitor Forgive, hopefully any and all attackers to their component atoms.

TechMind Interdimensional, should it survive a BLACK-FREQUENCY emergency, will honor each and every lost employee.
That has been a primer on TechMind Interdimensional Emergency Frequency Codes! Please tune in next time for a primer on the Font-Rating system!

(Dangit! I found these cute little Unicode Skulls to put on each side of BLACK but I guess they muck up the formatting, I had even cut the post in half because I thought I somehow hit a character limit and it was cutting the post off!)

(Edited again! I found a different skull and crossbones! ' <')
