I am in a room. It is painted a navy blue. I have nothing on but pyjamas. I have no objects. There is nothing in the room but a chair, a table, a bed and a small paper bin, which is completely empty. On one wall there is a door, a key pad which is covered over with a metal grate, surrounded by three smaller keypads. The keypads have all the letters of the alphabet on them.

OOh second lateral adventure in this week!

Check the door. Is it locked? Can you remove the metal grate? Check the room for the missing papers, every inch!

OOh second lateral adventure in this week! *Inspired by the first*

Check the door. Is it locked? *Yes, obviously by the key pads* Can you remove the metal grate? *No, it seems to need passwords from all three of the other keypads* Check the room for the missing papers, every inch! *None*

Inspect the table, chair and bin. Are there anything under them? *There seems to be strange writing enscripted into the chair...it says "Kill moo cot covats". In the bin there is a piece of paper saying "Ace lock turn her". There is nothing under the bin, table or chair, but on the table there is a small safe. It is padlocked, and needs a key.*

I guess anagrams are the key here again! I'm stuck

Ace lock turn her - rocket launcher? try typing rocket launcher into all the keypads I heard a click from the first one...

Repeat typing procedure for Molotov cocktails...and another click from the third. The second keypad hasn't clicked yet, and I still can't remove that metal grate, or unlock the padlocked box.

Can you move the safe?
Or is it attached to the table?
If attached, how?
Is anything written on the underside of the table?
Does the bed have a pillow?
Can you see anything on the ceiling?
Is there a doorknob on the door?
If so is there a keyhole (I know, there's a touchpad, but just in case)?
Is there a crack under the door, under which one could slide a piece of paper (but don't do it yet please)?

Check under the chair cushion, check IN the chair cusion...
check inside the mattress
check inside the pillow case
check behind the bed as well as under it...
Check the ceiling, just for kicks....

This is kinda like those Room games online... the Crimson and Veridian rooms, and the White and Blue chambers! If anyone wants to try them, type the name of the room onto yahoo or google and try them out!

If attached, how?
Is anything written on the underside of the table? no
Does the bed have a pillow? yes
Can you see anything on the ceiling? no
Is there a doorknob on the door? no

check inside the pillow case a key!!!
check behind the bed as well as under it... behind the head of the bed there's a small red button
Check the ceiling, just for kicks.... weird...there's a message saying "you will never escape!", with a small hole on the dot of the "!". It looks a bit like the end of a hose.

Rule #1... never press the red button when the door is sealed tightly (oh well).

On a hunch try typing improvised explosive device into the second keypad.

Type "explosive" into the keypad. Try "explosion", "bomb", "weapon""EXPLOSIVE" works, the door clicks, and swings open....

You look down into an infinite void of swirls and sparkles. You are almost hypnotised by the patterns, and fall. You fall and fall until you hit something soft. A bed. You sit up and...OH NO!

End of part one, PART II Coming soon.
