This quest looks very promising.

If you have not already partaken of the snacks, do so. Adventures, safe or not, simply cannot be undertaken on an empty stomach. Once you have gotten yon snack on, search around for a station attendant and find out what's afoot. Why is your train so late?

I think we just arrived in Cerebrum City and are waiting for a 'Scout Master?' to come pick us up?

Okay, so, SCIENCE was mentioned. I'm assuming that has to do with the adventure?

Either way, don't WAIT for the adventure to come to you. You should GO FIND the adventure! It's not just going to walk up to you any moment now! Go find it. SAFELY. Wherever it may be.

Also, any reason why it's called Cerebrum City? Maybe that will give us a clue to where the real adventure is?

First thing to learn about safety:
Safety is inversely proportional to the velocity of an object. Which relates to everything ever.
Nothing is absolutely safe. Get used to it.

Second thing to learn about safety:
The more blind faith you have in anything, the more it's gonna hurt when lack of maintenance causes an intricate and devastating malfunction.
KISS - Keep It Simple And Safe, (brought to you by NASA, the people who turned the Cold War into an expensive existential crisis)

Third thing to learn about safety:
Be efficient, be polite, have a plan to kill everybody you meet.

SAFETY FIRST; YOUR BUDDY BUNNY CHERUB SCOUT GUIDE SAYS:

IMPORTANT: Make sure you never step too close to the edge of the platform.

STEP 1: If you have a phone, call your parent or legal guardian and update them on your current status.

STEP 2: If there's a snack machine, and you have the means to use it, do that; don't let yourself go hungry!

STEP 3: If there's a station attendant, talk to them and ascertain if there's a waiting room you can sleep in.

STEP 4: If there isn't an official safe place to stay nearby, but you know an address in the city you can get in contact with, see about securing public transportation there.

IMPORTANT: Even if these last two steps don't pan out, remember this helpful Don't Panic™ tip: The process of ascertaining your surroundings can potentially reveal new solutions you otherwise wouldn't have noticed!

No. 933971 ID: e95cec

In descending order of importance, according to viability:
1. Phone somebody.
2. Find attendant.
3. Do you know an address or phone number?
4. Cops will (theoretically) take care of you until your guardian can be found (and reprimanded).

>>
No. 934130 ID: c0641d

BUDDY BUNNY SAYS:
If you find yourself lost in the city under hostile conditions, remember your BDSM:

Bearings: Are you truly lost? Hopefully not. Any good scout should at least be able to examine their surroundings and observe identifying landmarks such as street signs and government buildings. Train and bus stations might even provide a map of the immediate area.

Direction: Do you have a particular destination in mind? If you can ascertain how to move yourself to your ultimate goal, and it seems feasible to do either on foot or preferably with public transportation - Remember your travel money! - then you should see about reaching there under your own power. Don’t forget to use your umbrella.

Shelter: If you can’t reach your intended destination, your next priority should be protection from the elements and personal security. If you’re expecting somebody, you shouldn’t move too far - if you’re at a train station, for instance, see if there’s a sitting room connected off the platform; these are designed for hapless passengers caught out in the rain like yourself.

Mr. Neighborhood Officer: If even basic shelter that makes you feel safe can’t be found, try determining the location of a police kiosk or station. Even if it turns out you aren’t allowed to stay the night there, your friendly neighborhood officers should be able to help out with your predicament. (You can even stop your search if you find a patrol car. If an officer isn’t already present within, they’re likely in a nearby eatery.)

Rats make great insanity buffers when you need someone to talk to. Try talking to one! Ask for local landmarks and discuss your plans. They also provide emergency supplies! Just remember that your Strange Meat Pyramid needs a solid foundation. Ensure at least two of: Freshly harvested, cooked black, eject stomach contents.

Follow the instructions and say your name, your phone's number and that you're still waiting at [name of this station] at [this time,] Rosey never showed up to pick you up, you need a pickup soon and you love her (your mom.)

Alright, first, find shelter out of the rain, preferably still up on station platform. If this is a mass transit station then you'll want to stay up here to possibly take a train to nearer your mom's place. If you go to street level then you'd have to pay to get back up to the platform and you don't have any money, right?

Next, do you know where your mom's place is? What about her work place? Do you know the general layout of this city? If no to all those, then you'll need a phone book and a city map. Hopefully your mom is listed in there, either her home or her workplace. A phone book should be any phone booths or you could borrow one from a store owner. It may even have a city map printed in it as well. The station may have a city map too, or at least a transit map.

A phone book will also list the police station addresses and phone numbers as well as the city emergency and non-emergency numbers. This isn't a 911 level situation, so don't call that (yet.) One option would be calling the nearest police station or the police non-emergency number and explaining your situation and asking for help.

A second option, if you can't walk to your mom's place or use mass transit to get close enough to walk, is to call a taxi. It's not a good option 'cause I presume you don't have money and the cabbie will be expecting to be paid once you reach your destination and be angry if you don't. If you're lucky your mom will be there to pay. If not then the cabbie will either lock the car doors on you and trap you, chase you down, or sic the cops on you. For now record the number of a couple taxi companies for possible use later.
>>
No. 934145 ID: 6a6c99

Honestly I think you'd want to call the police next, as long as they aren't corrupt you can count on them to at least get you out of the rain, and help you contact whomever. You might even get a meal outta it. Child Abandonment is a crime and it ain't safe for you to be out here alone.

No. 934462 ID: c0641d

It doesn't sound like this is the sort of station to have an attendant. Be wary of strangers and continue calling the police: "Hello? I'm at {STATION NAME}. My name is {NAME} and I came on the {ETA} train. Someone was supposed to pick me up but it's really late now and it's really scary around where I am."

Other than this, as long as the un-ratlike being is posing a clear and present danger, you should be safe on the stairs; it works for the rats. Remember not to let any of them get too close in the meantime (and don't touch any surfaces here except for your soles, just to be safe). If they are a clear and present danger, you have a head start on them; remember not to just blindly run, though! Splatty Patty doesn't look where she's going and takes a dive off a raised walkway.

Unfortunately a glove makes for a bad ranged weapon, so direct fighting it is. Though there's a lot of potential to shocking puddles and staying back, it's the boss we need to confront and take down. So identifying the boss is the first step. After that we need to get the boss down to us, preferably with a few good shocks in to weaken them. Rose should be the final blow with the tranq.

Do you know how electricity works?

Current (measured in amps) is voltage divided by resistance. Human body is estimated to have about about 100000 ohms of resistance if you haven't broken the skin, and 100 mA of current is enough to be fatal to people. That 550 mA would be pretty much guaranteed fatal.

That is a perfectly standard taser voltage. Tasers use 50,000 volts to arc and make initial contact, then drop to a less fatal level once the circuit is closed. Whether the glove does that by default remains to be seen.

In regards to matters of safety...well, it would be both safe to exterminate this thing, AND capture it to investigate the source of the malady that caused it in the first place.

...damnit, we're a Safety Scout! We must be safe! And just leaving a potential issue to fester is Not Safe.

...But violence is fun!

Gah, capture it for now. Like the above poster said, we'll be the very violent Pinky to his Brain. Sort of.

Lets call our mom first, she’s probably worried to death about us.

“alright” Rose agrees
“we can use the phone right here, I’m sure sleeping beauty wouldn’t mind.” She says gesturing to the front desk’s phone.

While waiting for the phone to ring we ask Rose about our rat friend Rat-thoney.
“You named it?! (I was kind of hoping you’d forget about it and throw it away or something…)” Rose responds

“You just can’t walk around with that thing on a leash like a dog! Animals aren’t really allowed here, I can get you a cage, and you can keep it in your room or something but you can’t tell ANYONE about this, or we’ll both get into trouble.”

After a handful of slow rings from the phone we’re greeted with a familiar yet stern “HELLO?” immediately after we echo the greeting, the voice on the other end of the phone immediately erupts into a flurry.

“BABY!?! IS THAT YOU?! OH LORD. THANK GOD YOU’RE OKAY! WHAT HAPPENED?! WHERES ROSIE?! WHERE ARE YOU?! I THOUGHT I TOLD HER TO PICK YOU UP!!! THAT STRINGBEANED PEA BRAINED BIMBO!

Both options seem enticing we haven't had any sleep all night or a real meal other than our snacks at the station.

Things are starting to look up from the chaos last night. We even got to learn a new word. "whore" we're not entirely sure what it means but mom said it so it's probably a good one!
