First event LESSGO! Each of you will have different choices for different points in the night, this gives everyone an opportunity to have their own specific decision, AND gives you freedom to have other things occur during the party (with PCs). Some choices may have additional information, but I will try my best to specify when this is the case so I can share it w/ you if you choose that choice. Many of your characters will likely be interacting with Laramie throughout the night. He’ll be high off his ass, and probably playing into the end of the world hypothesis w/ the occasional tasteless joke about AI.

Todays the day. Y2K is coming in hot, so Harold Laramie is hosting only the most extravagant party at Faltechs headquarters. Anyone in tech will be making an appearance, but since the end of the world is coming he’s invited some of the best & brightest Faltech employees…even the ones with minimal clearance. There’ll be schmoozing, drinking & Laramie might even share some of his coke with you. NYE 1999 will be a night to remember, but for every drunk temp, there’s an equally drunk conspiracy theorists and clashing values are going to be the least of Laramie’s concerns come the new year.

Midway through the night the Head of Marketing is giving one of his company famous speeches and name drops you, mentioning a groundbreaking new game that you’ve been working on but haven’t discussed with anyone at Faltech. You: Ⓐ Approach him after the speech and tell him off, or Ⓑ Keep your cool, making a mental note to keep your work hard drive clean.

Harold Laramie took a “big risk” hiring such a young woman as his head copywriter but a pretty face has its rewards. A few minutes before midnight, Laramie approaches you with a champagne flute. You: Ⓐ Engage with the flirting, or Ⓑ Excuse yourself before the clock strikes midnight.

Several of the Russian branch managers are attending the party. While going to refill your drink you overhear two men talking about Laramie in Russian. You Ⓐ Throw in your own jab (in Russian of course), engaging the two men or Ⓑ Listen in but keep to yourself, you never know who might be listening.

New Years, Schew Mears. It seems there’s always work to be done in the world of a Data Analyst. Tasked by Laramie directly, you’re not quite sure whether you’re allowed to make an appearance at the party or if you’re stuck in the office watching the logs going into Y2K. You: Ⓐ Let the computer record the access data & escape downstairs to celebrate Y2K with the rest of Faltech or Ⓑ Stay in the office & keep track of the data.

It seems alcohol isn’t cutting it for the partygoers and you overhear someone mention they’d “Kill for some blow”. Ask and you shall deliver? You: Ⓐ Intercept the Faltech employee & offer them a fix, or Ⓑ keep your stash to yourself.
