You command him to tell you about how to get into the trap doors, and if there's any passwords or anything involved.

"When you touch the floor, you can feel the handle. It takes a good deal of strength to open 'em up, though. Same way with the hidden doors, like the one behind the locker--you can pull out from the handle side, or push from the non-handle side, but they're made for people like me. Maybe two regular people working together could do it. No passwords or anything... the guards know all the regulars. If you don't look like you oughta be here, they know what to do."

You make him tell you about ongoing patrols.

He almost smiles.

"We got guards everywhere. They're in the tunnels, they're in the main lobby, the bar... I think we even got a couple in the VIP area tonight."

Fuse and Jane can pull trap doors open together then if it comes to it, I guess. It's too bad Michelle can't fit through the vents! :'D

So if we snuck out through the locker path to find the VIP room, chances we'd bump into a guard are very high, I take it? Hmm...

Still, I think if we work at taking them out one at a time as we go through, maybe we can do this without causing too much of a ruckus. And we still have our rat scouts!

The one issue I can see there is that each guard will require more and more attention to keep under control, until we can't focus enough on all of them at once, and one of them breaks our control.

Maybe we should ask if there's a way straight to the VIP rooms, or as close to them as possible so we run into as few guards as possible? We might need a map of the secret tunnels and passages or something, unless he can describe them to us verbally with enough accuracy.

This is an excellent point! Definitely the less, the better...

Ooohhhh, I get it. The guards are Tube Cops.
