Mu signs something on the paper. It's some kind of squigly ideogram thing which presumably represents his name, but what script its in or how anyone's meant to interpret it isn't clear.

He grins smugly behind Rena's back as the "racist" depiction turns out to be about accurate. "Hello! Yes, we're the new recruits. I'm Mu. It means nothing. What are we getting started with?" His tone doesn't really indicate whether he's trying to say that his name means "nothing" or just that it doesn't mean anything.

Ringo stares in disbelief as the crazy robot from the elevator begins drawing on the receptionist's face. He seems to relax a bit, however, as a replacement is quickly brought in to fill the position of the now-damaged robot. Hope that doesn't come out of my pay.

At the prompting of the new robot, Ringo bends over to carefully scrawl his name on the sheet. It takes a full ten seconds (during which Mu asks the robot about their assignment); he's really paying close attention to detail.

If Rena noticed the resemblance of the actual robot secretary to the cardboard cut out, she didnt speak of it.

"Okay then, lets get this over with..." she mutters, following into the hallway. Catching up to robot, she nudges him with her elbow and says, "Hows about you and me kill off these meatbags and split the money? Hehehe!" Her laughter was hard to decipher mix between girlish flirting and diabolical intent.

"Sorry, can't do that, they pay on a per-person basis. So, we wouldn't get any extra money, and it'd be a pain to clean up. Have you ever dealt with the cops on a murder investigation? NOT that I have, I just... you know... hear it's not pleasant."

"Ok, definitely means to wipe us out, not subjugate us. Or indeed answer our questions." Mu seems to be amused, rather than bothered. He turns to Serena "I think we're going to have to watch out for that one. You ever fought off a berserk robot?"

OOCCopatt's gone awol, but she's quite good at catching back up, so we won't run around panicking(much).

The robot leaves the door to the back open, and beckons you all inward. This other room looks spiffy, about 20x20, complete with couches. Plush ones! There's a dramatic map of the Disc on the back wall, though it doesn't look very detailed. You imagine you'll be tasked with Fixing that soon enough.
"Come on, come on! I don't bite! Just nibble a bit here and there."

Upon entering the room, you are made aware of a strange grey-fuzzed Goat Person leaning on the entrance wall, to the left of the door. A deviant, you assume(you hope...), from someone who clearly decided that goats were awesome. Not even the proper satyr type, looks to just be a goat, standing on two legs. At least whomever crafted this thing had the decency to give it properly shaped pupils. He's wearing tan shorts, and two dark blue sleeves attached by what appears to be elastic and prayer. His horns do not seem sharp, but appear heavy enough to make dents even in your belligerent robot 'friend'.

Rena slaps the robot on the back hard enough to jolt him a bit, and laughs, "Oh I'm just messin. Come on now. Humans are more useful alive. They can do all the work for us robots while we relax!"

Once in the room, she notices the goat-person, and greets him, "Beh-eh-eh-eh!" She wasn't sure if that was how you said 'hello' in goat-language, but she thought it would have been polite to address him thus.

Ringo looks up at Mu's question: "You ever fought off a berserk robot?" He responds with a careless wave of his hand. "Yeah, here's a tip: apologizing is NOT a good way to deal with that situation. At least, not while they're still operational. After that, you can do whatever." He stands up, scratching his back as he walks through the narrow hallway.

He eyes Rena as she chats with the receptionist, and whispers to Mu: "She sounds like one of them 'robot's rights' chicks. Better keep some magnets on hand." Ringo gives the other man a pointed look, as if to say 'you've got my back on this, right?' Without waiting for a response he strides into the new room and heads for the map, looking for a "you are here" mark. He loves those - you can fool them by running somewhere else.

Serena's eyes widen at Mu's question, and she shakes her head, indicating that she has not, indeed, had to defend herself from a berserk robot. Plodding along with the others, Serena silently contemplates how magnets might be used to restrain a malfunctioning robot, Rena's aptitude-- or lack thereof-- for linguistics, the map and the goat boy.

Summoning her courage, Serena makes her way over to the anthropomorphic goat and dips her head. How I miss actually being able to sahke hands. Are you, ah, here for the exploration work as well?

OOCSorry about the sudden disappearance. I took off for Origins. Between the gaming, the needs of my S.O., and the crazy work schedule leading up to teh trip, I've been tapped out. I'm trying to catch up now.

Mu smiles at Ringo's apparent seriousness before returning his attention to Serena. "Just kidding, guessing you're not the violent type, right?"

He winces as Rena greets to goat guy. Hah! Oh wow. I would not have done that. Is she not used to dealing with organics? He opts to greet him with a simple "Hi."

Violent? No, I'm a student Serena says, slowly shaking her head, or at least I was.

Robutt: The goat glares at you, and his right hand crackles with electricity. The effect is slightly ruined, however, by sparks zapping between his horns, like a Jacob's Ladder.

Serena: "No. I play bossman, and that means you're working for me and Happy over there." He gives a wiggle towards the robot receptionist. "Think you can handle that?"

Happy Robot closes the door behind you, and starts shuffling around a stack of papers that seems to have come from nowhere. Probably stuffed in some hidden robot compartment.

Aww, it worked! He's trying to greet me in the only way he can think would be native robot language, expelling pure electricity. Bless him for trying.

"Well, Mr. Bossman. How may I serve you organics? Will it involve lasers? I really like lasers..."

Serena nods the affirmative at the anthropomorphic goat and rolls her eyes at the overzealous robot. Regardless, she is interested in bossman's answer, so she steps up beside Rena to see what he has to say about the job offer.

Ringo turns around at the mention of lasers, ready to draw his blaster again if people need to be informed of his skill. However, no one's paying much attention to him, so he sidles over to the goat guy and the strange ladies. "Can we move it along here? All of this standing can't be good for my health. What's the job?" He cracks his knuckles in an attempt to imitate someone with a work ethic.
