>>>So uh. Mind givin the ol' 101 on whats up here? Can guess how a needspenser works, but whats this about teams?

You put on some SLEUTH GOGGLES and vow to get to the bottom of this conundrum.

Spoiler: Chatlog
Nicopter: So, uh. Mind givin’ the ol’ 101 on what’s up here? Can guess how a needspenser works, but what’s this about teams?
cripesalmighty: Right.
cripesalmighty: OK, so that’s kinda a question we ask sometimes too, because we obviously don’t have all the answers and are confused on plenty of stuff too.
cripesalmighty: I’m on the Yellow Team and the other 4 are on the Green Team. Nobody on our teams ever got any compulsion to do psycho stuff at all! We’re all pretty much our normal selves.
cripesalmighty: But the Blue Team and Red Team both, um…
EXA: they were all gucci… for a little bit
EXA: juuust a little bit.
cripesalmighty: Yeah.
cripesalmighty: Sunshine and lollipops, everyone was ecstatic that we’d made it in, and then like five minutes later they started murdering the cripes out of everyone.
Crast Pactian: which was quite ironic, considering.
cripesalmighty: 17 people on Green and Yellow died, and 25 on Red and Blue.
cripesalmighty: I think we only pulled through because we hid and waited for Red and Blue to finish each other off.
Hunk Chudfest: honeslty the darkes t days f my life
Hunk Chudfest: no djokes
Hunk Chudfest: geniteinely.. really crap.y

cripesalmighty: ...yeah.
Crast Pactian: nicopter did survive that period of time.
Crast Pactian: it was not any team’s fault in particular that he died, and was not entirely too long ago.
1234567890: R1P.
tiptopGipgop: Rip, indeed.
cripesalmighty: Then there’s the teams in the game, the game on the terminals. Um. Ahem!
cripesalmighty: We’ve all got numbers per-team, and every number has a corresponding 3 other numbers on the other teams.
cripesalmighty: For instance, I’m the YELLOW 4, and Nic was the GREEN 4.
cripesalmighty: So we both got to play the same session of the game, in which we got to control the yellow and green teams respectively.
cripesalmighty: Then usually TG and Hunk would hop over to the abandoned blue and red terminals and play the other two teams.
tiptopGipgop: Nowadays, however, Numbers usually plays green, or sometimes Levyyts.
EXA: a-a-a-nd.
EXA: i play when cripes is… dozing.
EXA: or leaves her door open.
EXA: offften.
cripesalmighty: Truly exa you are like a little child who wanders into my room and plays my video game sometimes.
EXA: zzz.
Crast Pactian: a game which has wasted many hours and caused many fights.
Crast Pactian: not one i have ever advocated or played myself, as many other forms of entertainment often surface.
cripesalmighty: Yeah, but I gotta keep my win streak against Hunk or else I’m just a big failure!!

INPUT AGGREGATOR: thanks fo lettin me aggregate all ur inputs tonite

Nicopter: If You Would Care To Say

1234567890: w311 7h47’5 4 816 5h1f7 1n 79p1n6 57913, huh?
cripesalmighty: OK. The goal of the game.
cripesalmighty: Like all games, the goal is simply… to win.
cripesalmighty: We each command an army of 13 PAWNS and duel them to the last team standing. Each pawn has special powers and disadvantages, and you can win with any team, but each one has a different playstyle!
cripesalmighty: I’m partial to yellow because it’s home base but blue is also really fun. There are four tank characters and that’s a great ratio to the other teams.
cripesalmighty: Also, every PAWN on every team can get items from conditional BARRACKS, which are almost always random on a per-round basis, but a skilled player like me can almost always get what you want if you try hard enough!
tiptopGipgop: As you can probably guess, it takes a lot of mental prowess to play and win.
tiptopGipgop: Especially since all commands are entered through a command line, rather than any kind of user interface.
tiptopGipgop: If, for example, you want your team leader to take down another pawn in a fight, you have to tell them that with words.
Hunk Chudfest: n ic atn’at salways spel so ogodd soa ic an’t get all the srtuff to line p right
Hunk Chudfest: whean i’m sobbnere i’ma t the tomppsa my game :(

cripesalmighty: Oh my god sober hunk is basically unbeatable.
tiptopGipgop: Which is why, perhaps, you occasionally feed his alcohol habit with your own needspenser?
cripesalmighty: NO!!
cripesalmighty: You know that is an almightily shitty rumor and rude to say when Zack is around.
1234567890: 53r10u519 wh9 15 n1c0p73r c4p1741121n6 3v3r9 w0rd n0w
tiptopGipgop: Okay, okay, Cripes, cool it for a second.
tiptopGipgop: I don’t like playing him sober any more than you, but I think we can both agree that we probably should do better at weaning him off.
Hunk Chudfest: myuh

cripesalmighty: Anyway.
cripesalmighty: If you win, you get a prize, and the game resets instantly. So we get kind of competitive. And by kind of I guess I mean really a lot!!
tiptopGipgop: It teaches tactics, hand-eye coordination, the intricacies of combat…
tiptopGipgop: It’s not nearly as dangerous for the player as the heroes’ Game, but at least as much fun to play.
tiptopGipgop: I even figured the exact set of inputs to get an item combinator every single game.

cripesalmighty: The bastard!!
cripesalmighty: ONE DAY I’LL FIGURE IT OUT.
tiptopGipgop: You definitely won’t.
tiptopGipgop: Not if Zack really means to get us out of here.

cripesalmighty: Oh, um
cripesalmighty: Yeah. True.
1234567890: WH9 15 N1C 74LK1N6 D1FF3R3N7 N0W?!?!
Crast Pactian: numbers… please, just take a breath
1234567890: HE TALKED WITH CAPITALED EVERY WORD WHY’S HE DOING THAT WHY ISNT ANYONE LISTENING TO ME
cripesalmighty: I’m sorry, aaaa!! Jeez, numbers, calm the hell down!
cripesalmighty: I don’t know why he did that, I guess it didn’t occur to me as a big deal!
1234567890: CHANGED HIS QUIRK
Crast Pactian: perhaps zack doesn’t feel any compulsion to follow any typing style.
1234567890: SHSHSHSHSHSHSH
1234567890: SHUT UUUUP
1234567890: INTENTIONAL CHANGE
1234567890: IT WAs intentional
1234567890: intentional
1234567890: …
Crast Pactian: it’s alright, numbers.
Crast Pactian: we’re sorry for not hearing you earlier.
Crast Pactian: you know it can be tough to see what you’re saying sometimes.
1234567890: 1 kn0w.
1234567890: 50rr9
cripesalmighty: Zack, was that change in how you were typing, um…
cripesalmighty: Did it have some kinda meaning or something?

You start gearing up your communication drive in order to talk multiple times in a single conversation. The INPUT AGGREGATOR even gets a whirl at interpreting a command to keep it up!

Nicopter: I promise it’s nothing bad.
Nicopter: Enough about me, though. How were these teams actually killing each other’s players if it was all a game played through pawns?

cripesalmighty: That’s the weird thing.
cripesalmighty: Like, I guess that me, the YELLOW 4, and Nic, the GREEN 4, were supposed to collaborate with the BLUE 4 and RED 4 to play the full “4th session” of the game.
cripesalmighty: Same with Y5, G5, B5, R5, to play the 5th session.
cripesalmighty: But instead of everyone getting along, smashing drinks and playing the hell out of our terminal games as a big old 52-strong family, the actual real life teams went out of their rooms, walked through the halls, and started rampaging!
cripesalmighty: There should have been 13 sessions of the game going on all the time with wins and losses and such.
cripesalmighty: But now we have 9 people alive out of 52, with one of them completely crazy, and it just boggles the cripes out of me, too.
cripesalmighty: That all, um… all that stuff, all the stuff of us in this goddamn facility where we have rooms and halls and terminals and needspensers, is totally separate from the game.
cripesalmighty: I guess that’s why it’s so intriguing sometimes.
Nicopter: “This goddamn facility”...
Nicopter: Where is ‘here’? What facility?
tiptopGipgop: It’s the plane in which Inhabitants live. Us.
tiptopGipgop: I mean, obviously we haven’t forever. We’ve been outside of it plenty.
tiptopGipgop: But it’s apparently where we were originally meant to live out the rest of our natural lives in a place a lot safer than where we came from.
tiptopGipgop: This is really hard to explain to an outsider, I’m sorry.
tiptopGipgop: (Under the assumption that you’re not Levyyts.)
Nicopter: I can handle it.
tiptopGipgop: The Heroes were playing a game.
tiptopGipgop: They lost.
Nicopter: How Do They Relate

1234567890: 446H
tiptopGipgop: Well, we were part of the game.
cripesalmighty: And the heroes liked us enough that they made this place so that, even though they failed completely, we could live a happy life!
Nicopter: I’d been wondering how you actually got ‘here’.
Nicopter: So what happened when they lost?
tiptopGipgop: They didn’t fail completely, Cripes.

cripesalmighty: Almost completely!
Crast Pactian: they had quite the task ahead of them. i’m not sure they were ever cut out for the task of building a universe.
Crast Pactian: but they took kindly to us. they taught us everything we know about the outside world, about the game, about our original purpose.
Crast Pactian: and by giving us escape, a realm to live in such as this, they have let us transcend that original purpose.
Crast Pactian: even if it has trapped us utterly.
tiptopGipgop: They made the best choice they could. I am no great fan of our circumstances, but they had much crappier circumstances, and without them, we would all be dead.
Nicopter: But how did they… put you here?

EXA: best shot buddy boy:
EXA: give… me… best… shot
EXA: spoilers.
EXA: we all died

cripesalmighty: We all died, and they shrunk down and transferred our bodies into a tiny vessel they could get out of the radius of the MOCHA ENDING.
cripesalmighty: Which is not a human thing at all and I am guessing more of a you thing!
cripesalmighty: Though I guess you were asking stuff about humans earlier like you knew??
tiptopGipgop: The MOCHA ENDING escaped into their play session. This is their biggest mistake, letting it get out of the bounds of the planet it was from, back in their actual home universe.
EXA: zilch, though: us fast ones: went fast.
EXA: fast enough to get outta d.d.dodge.
cripeslamighty: Their play session got totally destroyed.
tiptopGipgop: So did they.
EXA: bye bye.
YUPPERS: what is MISSING from this FAIRY TALE
YUPPERS: is how DEAD US
YUPPERS: became ALIVE US

cripesalmighty: Hey yuppers!!!
YUPPERS: IT’S A REAL MYSTERY IS IT NOT??
tiptopGipgop: I’d really rather not do mouth and eye stuff involving a gifted horse, if you catch my drift.

Crast Pactian: like numbers said, most of the heroes did have particular mannerisms in their speech.
Crast Pactian: and text.
Crast Pactian: but i don’t believe that that was an influence on what we’ve chosen to do with our styles since getting here.
tiptopGipgop: I was a complete and total hero fanatic back way before they actually got into their session.
tiptopGipgop: So when they saved us, I freaked out some, I guess. My terminal had a name prompt, and I’d never gotten to have a username, so I chose to use the same format as all of their usernames.
tiptopGipgop: All in this chatroom have vowed to forget about the days when I, myself, imitated a typing quirk to try and seem hip.

cripesalmighty: Yeah, but what video device?!?!!
YUPPERS: i have ATTEMPTED a NEEDSPENSE of the necessary DISK.
YUPPERS: according to the HERO DEFINITION.
YUPPERS: SEEMS WE DO NOT NEED IT ENOUGH.
tiptopGipgop: I always thought it would be very cool to be a hero.
tiptopGipgop: But we are… I don’t know.
tiptopGipgop: It seems to me we’re better suited outside of a fight, in some ways. Since dying and seeing half my friends reach an unfortunate end by their own hands, I haven’t really felt the compulsion to fight back.
tiptopGipgop: Well, I have, but it’s quickly doused with thoughts like ‘why would violence solve this problem?’ and ‘is there another way?’

Crast Pactian: i’ve done well, i see.
cripesalmighty: Okay, so.
cripesalmighty: I mean
cripesalmighty: TG can I say this?
tiptopGipgop: Is it the… light… that entire thing?
cripesalmighty: Yes, yes yes
tiptopGipgop: Dance around my part to play in this mess.
cripesalmighty: OK, so, pre-hero arrival, me and TG totally mapped up what we would be if we were heroes. I even drew myself a big gleaming sword made of light! (My fighting method would be with light of any kind because that’s how goddamn rad I would be.)
cripesalmighty: So I would be the FIGHTER of LIGHT!
cripesalmighty: I don’t think that’s even a thing but I definitely wanted to be it.
EXA: what did you obtain
EXA: original art of your herosona
cripesalmighty: Yep!

tiptopGipgop: Well, excited about heroshit as I might be, once I realized how much I was obsessing over it, I finally had the compulsion to stop.
tiptopGipgop: There’s a lot more value in just trying to become my own person.

Crast Pactian: to get back to your original question, zack,
Crast Pactian: since we have rambled for at least 40 posts now,
Crast Pactian: while we are a bunch of rambunctious folks with many big ideas and things to talk about
Crast Pactian: i question whether we are hero ‘material’, so to speak

cripesalmighty: Yeah, the chirality button!
cripesalmighty: That’s how it is on green terminals anyway. My keyboard has two chirality toggles instead of a single button so I have to press them at the same time to go back to the viewfinder.
Nicopter: Keyboard?
Crast Pactian: whatever you are typing with.
Crast Pactian: if you do manage to make it into the viewfinder, you should report back by hitting chatlog immediately.

Keyboard? What is this KEYBOARD they speak of? You're certain you've HEARD the word before, but having such a physical item in your vicinity is a befuddling concept. You can't imagine how such a thing would even function.

Still, you decide to go with your gut. You will up the energy to press (?) the CHIRAL button (???) on your keyboard (?????).

Something whirrs.

After a minute, you figure out that you have to TYPE the name of the thing you want to go to. This is tough since you don't have a keyboard, but your INPUTS eventually go through.

Since we're not in pain, it must still be linked to Nicopter.

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

You bring up CHAT, simple as can be.

Immediately, you begin typing up a storm, but immediately notice that something is wrong, and take a moment to read it over.

Spoiler: Chatlog
Nicopter: Morning.
cripesalmighty: Morning, Nic!
cripesalmighty: Cripes I’m nervous. Holy hell it feels like a million stomachs are attacking my butterflies inside of my heart cavity.
Nicopter: Yeah, me too.
Nicopter: Honestly, it’s also kinda relieving to finally be leaving.
Nicopter: Or close enough to it, right? Close enough.

cripesalmighty: Close enough.
Nicopter: You checked our folks at all yet?
cripesalmighty: Oh CRIPES no I haven’t. I couldn’t stand to, I guess, knowing we’d just be gone anyway.
cripesalmighty: It just feels like more stuff to be depressed about.
Nicopter: Well, Cripes beware, I gave it a quick look-see.
Nicopter: Yuppers was wakin’ everyone up. Cripes got pretty upset, it looked like.

cripesalmighty: Oh, she would!!
Nicopter: Levyyts stayed up all night practicing on an empty game and it seems like Exa was still writing her guide.
Nicopter: Crast was walking to his room with groceries and getting sidetracked with the chat, I think, um…
Nicopter: Y’know, eheh-- generally just business’s usual.

cripesalmighty: Augh.
cripesalmighty: They are such an adorable bunch of people.
cripesalmighty: I guess it makes it easier knowing at least today is gonna keep being normal for them.
Nicopter: Hey, Cripes?
cripesalmighty: Yeppers?
Nicopter: Right before I was gonna message you earlier, a needspenser spat out something by me.
cripesalmighty: All on its own? What, like, a weapon?
Nicopter: I don’t know exactly, but-- I think it’s called an INPUT AGGREGATOR.
Nicopter: I plugged it into my terminal.

cripesalmighty: Holy shit don’t tell me you tampered with anything they might be in danger
Nicopter: No!
Nicopter: No, I swear I din’ do a thing to our folks!
Nicopter: I just knew that I NEEDED the aggregator thing, and that whatever it is, it appeared out of need.

cripesalmighty: You know how much it freaks me out to be within a foot of my terminal, Nic. Where did you even plug stuff in?
Nicopter: There’s some outlets in the back.
cripesalmighty: ...man.
cripesalmighty: I guess maybe it’s for the better.
cripesalmighty: Maybe it will do terrible shit to our folks, but maybe it’ll just do a better job than us?
cripesalmighty: I mean, despite this being the worst world imaginable
cripesalmighty: If you NEED something, you NEED it.
cripesalmighty: Can’t lie about that, heroes.
Nicopter: That’s my reasoning, s’pose.
Nicopter: I made the assumption it’d be gettin’ input from somewhere, maybe some automated function, but either way I figured it’d be good to put some info in.
Nicopter: Just a little note in the file the aggregator came with.

cripesalmighty: Are we gonna leave, still? We could stay a little longer and wait to see what it does.
Nicopter: Cripes, ah… naw.
Nicopter: I think it’s now or never.

cripesalmighty: Alright.
Nicopter: I’ll meet you at the hole-in-the-wall, OK?
cripesalmighty: Love ya, Nic.
Nicopter: Aw, hush, we’re going to be together in literally two minutes. Maybe more if I hobble real, real slow...
cripesalmighty: Right, right! Okay! Just a sec

After reading the extremely odd CHATLOG, you proceed to check out a few other things from the main screen.

INPUT AGGREGATOR: im supposed to blush at this point im pretty sure
INPUT AGGREGATOR: cant really reason why
INPUT AGGREGATOR: but since im, as i was sayin earlier, not sentient, id say reasoning is tough enough as is
INPUT AGGREGATOR: this ain't nothing special, meheh

You open the image file with feverish urgency.

The NARRATOR politely asks you to pretend, for a moment, that the drawing in reality looks quite a lot less crummy.
