Room Service


Anomaly #: 017
Code Name: Room Service
Level: High
Anomaly Type(s): Chemical
Hazards: MEM-02
Departments involved: Chemical Research Dept.
Discovery: █████████, California

Description: AEP-017 is a hotel located in Southern California, in the small town of █████████. The exterior is composed of a brick and the building appears to be run-down. AEP-017 appears to be empty and abandoned. From the interior, there are exactly ███ rooms in operable condition, with each one nearly identical. Although the hotel was originally constructed in 18██, it has been revised, as there are ██████ flat-screen televisions in each room.

Upon entering AEP-017, subjects report feeling somewhat uneasy, although they are unable to explain why. The air is noticeably thicker and appears to be contaminated with a previously unknown form of airborne fungi. This fungus appears to be a close relative of ascomycete ██████. AEP-017 contains approximately 25 separate entities, designated AEP-017-1, who act as Hotel Staff. Upon entering the hotel, AEP-017-1 will intercept the subject and lead them to the front desk. If they comply with AEP-017-1, they will be taken to a room inside of AEP-017 and given a magnetic key-card to enter their room.

Upon prolonged exposure to the subject's room inside AEP-017-1, the subject will begin to "feel as if [they] had always lived there, and [they] really wanted to be there". They will resist any external attempts to take them away from the hotel, and will slowly lose all memories of their lives before entering the hotel. There appears to be no cost to those staying at the hotel, even for extremely long intervals of time.

Addendum [███]-(004):

There appears to be some sort of communications barrier between the interior of AEP-017 and the outside. We aren't able to reach any of the Personnel currently inside of the damn hotel! I want an ART to check this out as soon as possible. This is almost impossible to document this damn AEP if we can't get any info from our guys inside. Again, I'm requesting an ART to go inside to test for some kind of radio malfunction or barrier. Make sure he checks up on those guys we have in there, too.

Maintenance Protocols: AEP-017 is located approximately 100 kilometers away from the I-15 highway, in the state of California. AEP-017 is to be fully enclosed by a six-meter concrete wall, topped with barbed wire. All roads leading towards AEP-017, and the small town of █████████, have been rerouted. Due to the anomalous nature of AEP-017, all Personnel are revoked from entry without permission from the U.S. Southwest Regional Manager.

All personnel attempting to enter AEP-017 are to be detained for questioning, before being amnesticized and driven back to ███ ██████ and released. If at any time an instance of AEP-017-1 attempts to leave the enclosure area, they are to be restrained. If they resist, lethal force is authorized.
