Using your toolbox, it's pretty easy to take the vent cover off. You cautiously... carefully... make your way down to the lower floor.

You pop out in a room

and of all the things

the first thing you notice

is that there is no door.

Someone built a room in this apartment without a door. Why would you do that.

Uhhhh... WHAT ARE ALL THE THINGS. I want to see. And are those candles below a thign that looks like the poster? Are those white rectangles notes? Do we see anything to control/power those screens? And what is that... that thing behind us that looks like a... chicken-thing?

.... yeah turn around, carefully. Gut instinct says that thing's alive... or it's likely to move at any given point. Also, is it just me or does this scream "Cultist Room"?
Check out that thing on the wall, it's the same design that as the ones on the posters on the vents, with some extra bits added to it... yeah that's an alter to something. Ooh look, computers that are way too advanced for this place. Guess we've found what Howler's computer's been Pillaring... or whatever.

... also in hind sight we never rummaged around Howler's room proper. we only looked at what his browsing history was and what was on his computer.

......... And no one reacted to howler's username being QueenSlave5? Given what we know of the drug, that's a flag for not good.

Given the long periods of blacking out and not knowing where you've been, Save the Queen might well be some sort of hivemind inducing drug. Added to what happened at that hospital earlier...

Was Deadspace made in this universe? All that's missing is blood scrawling on the walls saying "MAKE US WHOLE!" to fit the bad vibes.

If we can get back up without something trying to kill us once we get back to Howler's living area we might want to make a new account just to check the member names for whatever forums Howler's been using the alias of QueenSlave5 on. If they've got others in numerical sequence* going on shit's hitting the fan.

*something like: QueenSlave (with or without a 1 at the end), QueenSlave2, QueenSlave3, QueenSlave4, QueenSlave5 , etc.

Edit: ... I've got this strange feeling that Howler's going to mysteriously vanish or something before his slated execution time.
