It is apparently one and a half hours into the Voan workday.

Permalink

How long is the Voan workday and how fast can they get there?

Permalink

Six hour shifts are typical and they can get on a bus that will get them there in one, with Gull's help!

Permalink

Cool then she will just show up (accompanied) in the designated location as soon as the bus arrives!

Permalink

The bus teleports through various bus stops, and finally announces Voa.

Permalink

Excellent. ...How...do they go about finding Allocator Bauo's office. 

Permalink

There is a directory app she can download by scanning a code on the wall or searching this keyphrase! The given example on the wall ad is about finding a place that sells picklepot but she can probably extrapolate.

Permalink

She can: extrapolate. She cannot: Give a damn what picklepot is right this minute! 

Still followed by entourage, she walks or takes convenient transit to the Allocator's office. 

Permalink

(If she believes the picture has anything to do with what picklepot is, it's a food.)

The navigation app can tell her what train to get on and what stop to get off at! It cannot tell her which office is Allocator Bauo's. Perhaps she will have to inquire at the front desk.

Permalink

"Hi, I was told to show up at Allocator Bauo's office during work hours?" She has the email out to show the front desk person if the front desk person doesn't just take her at her word. 

Permalink

The receptionist has honey-yellow hair and a lot of wrinkles and pictures of various yellow-haired children on his desk. "All right! You want the left elevator bank," he points, "floor twelve, office 12-45."

Permalink

"Thank you very much!" 

The motley crew tromp past to the left elevator bank and floor twelve. 

Permalink

The offices are numbered on the doors! Various people with blue and yellow hair are going to and fro.

Permalink

Bog-standard humanoids with colorful hair make no particular impression given the diversity of sapient species these people are used to!

Saerltes knocks on the door. 

Permalink

The door opens by itself with the cunning use of hidden machinery! A yellow inside typing something up says "Hello! Can I help y- wow, there are a lot of you."

Permalink

"These are my daughters and the people they've spent the last few years surviving a war zone with. We're sort of sticking together for moral support for the moment; they can wait for me outside if you'd rather but we'd rather not be planets apart at the moment."

Permalink

"They can wait in here while you talk to Allocator Bauo? If you're here to talk to him."

Permalink

"Yes, I am. That's fine."

Permalink

"May I have your name as it would appear on his agenda?"

Permalink

The yellow does a thing to her computer. "Allocator Bauo, a Saerltes."

"Ah, two minutes, thanks," says a voice from the computer (and, faintly, behind the door on the far end of the room).

Permalink

Saerltes nods and sits and waits. 

Permalink

In two minutes a blue with a neat little beard opens the door. "Hello! Come in."

Permalink

"Hi!" She comes in. 

Permalink

"Welcome to Voa! Your writeup was really intriguing. I think it could help a lot of people. Is there anything you cut for length in there?"
