CONSULT THE OOC FOR MORE INFORMATION 1789 Days Without Work Injury [Everyone] It was another night at Beta-Lab. The environmental lighting dimmed at it's usual time which signified the changing time. At first it was a very cool feature, but over time became redundant and even a little bit despairing. It made most workers feel homesick, and eager to complete their time at Beta-Lab. There were ways to treat the homesick feeling. It was called Hyperbindron, and it came in a very neat little pill pen for easy use. Even though it was technically night in Beta-Lab, that didn't stop most people from working. Everyone was assigned a certain schedule for hours they could sleep. If you got more sleep, chances were you were less important to the the higher ups, but who could say no to 13 hours of uninterrupted sleep? You and 300 other workers were assigned to ST1. Sleep time one. During those times you were asked politely to head down to the Civilian sector to get some rest and relaxation. Which is where you all began. More specifically, you were all in the Quarters department in your rooms, or in your office. The Quarters was a very open space. The ceiling was high, and the pathways to different blocks of rooms were very wide. Holotech water fountains, plants, and billboards lit up most of the walkways with their digital glow. The newly installed Sensetech made it possible to smell the plants, and hear the trickle of the virtual water. Some benches sat on the side of the walkway for people to sit by and admire the spectacles. But like most 'incredible' Beta-Lab breakthroughs, it seemed to get boring after a while. Assuredly the newest, greatest gadget would burst through the doors in not time. "SLEEP TIME ONE IS NOW IN SESSION, PLEASE MAKE YOUR WAY TO YOUR ROOM AND GET A GOOD BETA-LAB SLEEP!" The PA system announced with the same automated female voice. Even it sounded like it was tired. About an hour into the ST1, the chatter of people in their rooms and the walking of people outside soon silenced, and it was relatively silent in the Quarters. A couple hours passed, and then the clock hit 2:17 AM. You were disrupted from your sound sleep by the sound of the emergency alarm. Not too long after that, the power in your room failed along with the lights outside in the walkways. Even the alarm system silenced, and you were left alone in the eerie dark. The red emergency lights slowly turned on in your room, barely illuminating anything. You could hear people in the rooms close by talking, and you could also hear metallic doors sliding open. At first, it was just quiet talking. People grumbling about the power being out, and how it'd never happen before. A second passes, and a loud scream shattered the mumbling. More screams and shouts followed, and before you knew it, chaos seemed to be right outside your door. "Oh shit! Betas!" A man yelled. It sounded stressed, almost like something grappling him. "Get out of here! Beth-" Another man screamed. Though something silenced it prematurely. In the midst of the struggle outside, the PA system seemed to turn on for a second, but you only heard a static crackle emit from the speakers in your room. The noise outside got louder, and eventually you couldn't hear the PA at all. This is where you began.
