Not taking any chances, Wenton bolts towards the door.

You pile through the door just as the timer hits zero and it slams resoundingly shut behind you. The room is extremely dark, with only a single bright light on you, and another on four chairs in the centre of the room. Another light comes up up a few seconds later in front of the chairs, and is inhabited by a tall, Dark-haired, female clone. She is Violet clearance. She gestures for you to sit.

After regaining his composure Wenton sits down and speaks in a smooth controlled manner, "Thank you very much. I am Wenton-R-HSG-1, a pleasure to meet you."
He offers the woman his hand.

The woman smiles warmly, and twelve or so monitors light up behind her, revealing that there is a nervous Orange clearance clone in the room as well, he looks like he'd really rather not be present.

The Monitors switch over to the green eye that represents Friend Computer and you hear his voice,
Greetings Troubleshooters, I notice that some of your uniforms are slightly DIRTY! Well, no matter, before you are assigned your mission, you must each be assigned position on the team, you will require: 1 Team leader, 1 Hygeine Officer, 1 Morale Officer and 1 Technician. DISCUSS THIS WITH YOUR TEAM-MATES, COMMUNICATION IS THE KEY TO COOPERATION AND THENCE, SUCCESS!

"I know a bit about robot repair, habitat maintenance, vehicle repair, I'm pretty good at just fixing things that have broken, so.. unless someone objects, I'll take the Technician spot." Estee says quietly.

"I'm handy with a wrench myself as well. But I'll take the Morale Officer position. I'm a pretty good motivator too."
Loco smiles broadly and looks to the others awaiting response.

Tim thinks for a little while and then speaks up:

"Personally, I don't particularly care what position I get. If loco is going to be Morale Officer and Estee is the technician I suppose I could be the Team leader, considering that my interactions with hygiene and cleanliness has been somewhat less than optimal so far."

THEN IT IS SETTLED.
LOCO, YOU SHALL BE IN CHARGE OF MORALE, this involves handing out hapy pills when your team-mates look down, and giving them a good clip round the ear when they seem too happy!
ESTEE, YOU SHALL BE THE TEAM TECHNICIAN, you are in charge of who uses what equpment, and where and when, should anyone on the team use the equipment as opposed to regulation, I shall expect a full report from you at the debriefing.
WENTON, YOU SHALL BE HYGEINE OFFICER, Take this;

A Super Soaper, similar to the one used earlier drops out of a hatch on the ceiling and lands on Wenton's lap.
Use it when you feel it is just, should this team return filthy, dirty, or otherwise looking anything less than completly sharp, you will be responsible, and must explain yourself at the debriefing.
WOLFE, YOU SHALL BE THE TEAM LEADER, this is arguably the least important position. You will be the first questioned during the debriefing.


YOU ARE DISMISSED!

The female clone looks a little perturbed at this statement, and gestures for you to stay in your seats while she moves over to one of friend computer's terminals and engages in a hushed conversation
"GRRRRRRRRRROOOOOOOOWR!!!!"

Wenton looks slightly disappoint at the Super Soaper and whispers to the others in a sarcastic manner, "Yay, I get to wash you guys." He looks at the woman, "I wonder what they are talking about."

He strains to hear whatever he can from the woman's and Friend Computer's conversation.

The woman whips around and advances on Loco, livid,
"You have an unauthorised Soaper?! We've been short on them for months!" She quivers with anger for a few moments, before quietly returning to the terminal and whispering to Friend Computer again, shortly afterwards Friend computer speaks again,
You are being sent to sub-level 6. There have been reports of an unidentifiable presence and a large influx of a new, robed secret society. Get down there, and put a stop to them, if you come across this... thing, whatever it is, put a stop to that as well. DISMISSED.

The room lights up proper and you can see that behind the now blank monitors are several tables covered in equipment, the woman smiles horribly at you, malice in her eyes and points to the nervous Green clearance clone,
"He is your assigned Quartermaster, his name is Bill-G-BOW-5. The clone flinches a little at the uncomfortably high number as the violet clearance clone sweeps out of the room majestically. He hurries to the tables and pulls out a small clipboard with an attached pen,
"Er... well, come on then, let's get you equipped..."
"GRRRRRRRRRROOOOOOOOWR!!!!"
(Translation: "Objection!")

Still a bit pale and shaken up after the woman's outburst, Loco walks over to the table.
"Hi. I'm Morale Officer Loco, I'll need the relevant equipment for a Morale Officer."

(I'll post an explanation of proper combat resolution in the OOC thread, which will help put these pieces of equipment in context))
The Clone taps his hands on a medikit, apparently designed for use with the belt that accompanies your fetching red Overalls. He opens it and reveals that it is overwhelmingly full of various psychiatric medications, the largest being friendlily labeled "HAPPY PILLS". There is also some other medical equipment, including a couple of rolls of Gauze, but these supplies are dwarfed by the sheer number of pills filling up each compartment of the small box.
Also on the table is:
4 laser Pistols,
1 Laser Rifle (Similar to the pistols, but it uses more energy with each shot, and is easier to aim)
10 laser barrels (This is the ammunition, it runs from batteries, so you can get a few uses out of it when it's flat, it simply clips onto the front of the pistol itself, Red Clearance),
2 suits of Reflec armor (Red clearance, L4)
1 suit of Kevlar armor (B3)
3 Com 1's (Esentially Walkie Talkies)
1 weekcycle's worth of Rations.


There is also a Toolkit, similarly designed to the medikit for attachment onto standard uniform. Integrated into this is a Com 2, slightly more powerful than the Com 1's and capable of sustaining a transmission to Friend Computer, relaying transmissions from Com 1's over greater distance, etc. Bill hands these to Estee, along with a Multicorder (Essentially a video/audio recorder, it is always running and collects all sorts of information constantly, Friend Computer uses this to cross-examine clones during debriefing)
Bill nods at Wolfe,
"Everyone gets a pistol, since you're the leader, you decide who gets the rifle and the armor. Afraif we're running a little short..."
His eyes dart nervously around the room.
"GRRRRRRRRRROOOOOOOOWR!!!!"
(Translation: "Objection!")

"Understood, Cap'n." Wenton smiles and dons the armor. He picks up the rifle and aims around the room a bit, trying to get familiar with the weapon, eventually stopping playfully with the sight on Bill.

Loco puts on the armor and walks to the table. He looks over the table and grabs the Medikit and puts it on his belt.

Then he hesitantly picks up one of the Laser Pistols and two barrels and one of the Com 1's.
Loco asks: "Hey guys, 2 barrels each and 4 for whoever is carrying the Rifle makes sense to me. Do you agree?" while trying to fit all the equipment on his uniform.

"Your math doesn't seem to be all that good. There are five of us if I'm counting right, and only 10 laser barrels. 2 each sounds like the way to go, for now anyway. I'm not particularly good with laser weapons so I'll try not to shoot anything unless it's an emergency. To conserve ammunition you know."

Tim picks up a gun and 2 laser barrels. then he looks at the com 1's, picks one up and turns to the others.

"Anyone mind if I carry one of these?"

"We're short one. Perhaps that is why your math was in error. I know that's why mine was." Estee looks a little concerned.

"I suppose this means two of us will have to stick together at all times, even if we have to split up.

Bill picks himself up off the floor and rushes over to a door in the back of the room. He opens it frantically, disappears for a few seconds, then comes back in with another Com 1. He thrusts it at Wenton, almost shrieking,
"There! It's all I took I swear! Please don't shoot me!"

Wenton takes the Com and stares at Bill in disbelief, "Yo... I didn't... What did..." He then lets out a hearty laugh, "Calm down, it was just a joke." He waits for a second to see if Friend Computer or the woman noticed.

((Nice save, Maseiken.))
