    ((@Sato give me an influence check))

    Sam takes a look around in matrix space and finds the rooms have numbers of occupants on them, but the actual members inside are masked for privacy. He can go from room to room to try and see who is in them, but that will involve some hacking. While he is out in the hallway, the maid sprite from before approaches and says to Sam, "Hello, honored guest. Is there something I might do to help you?"

    ((yep, though when you are in a particular room, the room changes in matrix space depending on whatever setting you have selected. The actual room does not change though. ))

    Sato mingles with one of the larger groups, participating in the PDA. He chooses to focus his attention on one of the ancillary women in the group - he is not seeking to climb the socia ladder ((yet)), but quickly gain influence with one as cover so he can use her as cover to get himself into the simsense rooms.

    His experience with disabling people's nerves ((nerve strike)) helps him touch just the right places to get attention, relaxing tense muscles and causing just the right kind of muscle spasms.

    From arms reach, he whispers into her ear: "would you like to join minds to really experience each other?"

    The girl that Sato ends up hitting on has less mods than most and her deck is clearly a lower end model than a lot of the fancy things you see people carrying around. She is fairly nervous around Sato but eventually agrees to follow him into the simsense area.

    "Nope. I'm just checking this place out. It's my first time. I figured there would be some really cool virtual stuff going on. But it's just the simsense rooms, huh?"

    The virtual maid gives a deep bow and says, "I am sorry if our services are not to your liking. If the simsense rooms are insufficiently 'cool virtual stuff', for a small fee, I can take you to our VIP lounge. The price there is 50 nuyen per 15 minutes. Simply name what it is you wish to experience and I will ensure that you are happy, honored master."

    "Not right now, thanks. But I'll keep that in mind."
    Sam notes the rooms which are occupied, and the numbers. Are there any other rooms with just one other person in them? If I was able to see the numbers of occupants before, which room has one more occupant than it had before Akane walked in?
    Here's some rolls that might be relevant:

    While Sam didn't really take the time to check each room for its number of occupants before, at least one of the front rooms does appear to have an extra occupant from when he entered.

    Sato leads her into the simsense area.  

    If there's a way to tell which rooms are occupied, he acts inebriated and stumbles into the one furthest from the door, looking for the one with Akane.  

    ((if they are locked, he requests Sam to help crack them - Sam hasn't told him anything yet))

    Sato staggers a bit and redirects himself towards the door indicated by Sam, his new friend in tow. He hopes it is not locked.

    ((Okay... So, I looked it up. Running silent is just a simple action to do. Logic+Sleaze is the rest to resist being found once running silent. And it should get a -2 pool modifier for running silent. I think that's what you guys were getting at. There's a Hide action that you use when you're running silent and you're spotted... Not sure if that's relevant yet, but I'll roll both with -2 modifiers for running silent))

    The maid stares at the spot where Sam's avatar was for a few moments, then disappears as she does not notice anyone else that currently needs help. ((alright go ahead and do your check to break in))

    Sam manages to toss a pair of game logos onto the node, allowing him access to the room's controls. He is able to open/close the door, see a user list of the room's occupants, and change the settings to the current simsense session. He could also send his avatar in there to join in on whatever is going on if he wants.

    A quick look at the rooms info shows that it has 4 occupants whose screen names are: SanrioBoi, TheRealGoku, Akachan and MasterOfTheNight. The current simsense setting is: Public Train.

    ((I'm sure those are all references to some things, but the only one I caught was Goku. Nice to see Goku fandom remains in 3010.))

    Sam unlocks the door and tells Sato "Looks like Akane is in there. And three other people. So, be careful."

    ((I'm not sure exactly how a simsense room would work... Is there a way I could make them think that Sato is part of the experience? Probably not, right? Because they're probably in VR? So I likely couldn't mix meat stuff in to their VR. But maybe Sam could go in to the VR train, disguised as Jeeves, and we could reverse this Cyrano de Bergerac plan!))

    Sam says that to Sato.

    ((The matrix basically is all a light version of Simsense. It replicates all the senses of the real world so people can interact more intuitively without the need for real computer knowledge. Simsense is also used in other ways such as video games, simulations of movie scenes (where you become part of the action) and feedback from various devices, such as the smartlink in a smartgun.

    Normally there are legally enforced limits to the sensory input so that you can tell what is real and what is not. These limits are both in the simulations themselves, as well as the hardware used to run them. Some people of course bypass these limits. On the hardware side, you are basically doing this when you run hot sim on your deck. On the software side they have what are called Better-Than-Life recordings (BTLs). When you are fully immersed in a BTL it is, as the name suggests, more real than real life. It is extremely addicting and while you can't "overdose" like with traditional drugs, burnout users end up refusing to leave their digital worlds and pass away because they forget to take care of their bodily needs.

    The scenes provides by these rooms are within legal levels, but you do need to be jacked into the matrix to take advantage of them))
