You let Fuse and Michelle know about the brown rat.

You make the guard in the security office tell you if there's any bouncers in front of the building. "Of course there are. Should be two of them."

You make the guard tell you if there's any reason he would relieve Macland's bodyguard. "Nah, not that I know of. He's scheduled to that post until Macland leaves. He don't even get to take a piss tonight unless Mack goes with him."

You make the guard tell you if a fire would force an evacuation. "It'd have to be a helluva fire. We got fire suppression systems in this building--they won't all bail over something small."

You attempt to sense through the dead rat. You can, but it's faint--like trying to feel through your bandages, or needles, without being in contact with them.

well, i guess we better find a place to start a helluva fire, then? i don't think it's worth the risk to try and navigate the place with just jane and fuse. we'd never get anywhere near mack before we got caught or killed. or both. there aren't any places to hide, really, if we wanted to do a slow takeover, and the two of us probably couldn't handle rushing the tubeguard.

i suppose there is a chance that our real name could get us close enough to mack, but if they're on the look out for us and they know our real name, that might be the opposite of a good idea.

Can we give the guard syringes and make him inject Macland, the scarred guard, and the woman with them?

We don't even need to blow anything up.

I thought about that, too. I just wonder about that scar-face. I feel like he's the stronger of the two, and if he can't inject him things could get really messy. I suppose we could standby near the VIP room from the other side of the tunnels and if things don't quite go to plan, we could jump in and do what we can.

I think viable courses of action at this point include setting somewhere on fire - MASSIVE fire, so Fuse can go nuts. If we go by places we can actually get to without a hitch, though, so that gives us options of the restroom and the torture room, if I'n not mistaken. I don't know if it would be so bad to set the torture room ablaze, though we would need to open the secret doorways so the oxygen doesn't primarily suck out through the vent we're in.

I've also thought, we could potentially inject the bartender in the bar room (should be quite easy to do without anyone noticing) and have him either sneak us alcohol through the vent so we can drench the torture room so it's easier to set ablaze, or send drinks on behalf of 'someone' over to the VIP room so that Mac eventually will want to go to the restroom, which we have easier access to. It would be a lot easier to inject Mac in a stall from the vent without actually having to come into contact with scar-face, assuming entirely that Mac doesn't have to actually get into the stall with scar-face :'D

Aaand those are my thoughts. This one's tough and while I'm not much for reckless action, I understand if that's where this ends up going. XD;

Hmmm, boozing him up might actually help with whatever we end up doing, make him less likely to be able to resist us perhaps.

The one thing I'm concerned about is blooding too many people, and then being unable to keep all of them locked down at once and having one of them slip out of our control for a moment.

As morally problematic as it is... I wonder if we can have our blood essentially cause our unwilling thralls to self-destruct when we don't need them any more? Like, have it just stop the heart or something, or pulp the brain.

THE BATHROOM! Now, if only there were a way to inject the bartender without him realizing it had happened...
But yeah, get Macland in the bathroom from drinking. He may go there anyway. But he might not, even with added booze.
