    Ruby appears to be in a bed.
    She feels mostly unhurt, but disoriented. She appears to be in one piece.

    [I'd just like to make one request: these are much easier to manage when threads are kept to only what's needed, so to avoid having to make 8+ threads per adventure, try to keep comments relevant. If you have something to speculate, post it along with your suggestion of action, or otherwise try to keep from overposting. 30 posts per action is a bit much, especially when not many options are available.
    Basically, all I'm asking is that everyone tries to avoid flooding these threads unnecessarily.]

    There's a strange circular thing on the wall opposite the broken window/mirror, which looks almost like a clock. There are no hands, but there is a circular peg in the center.
    There are no numbers, only four odd symbols.

    >>Check wastebin thingy next to the dummy.
    It looks almost like a filing cabinet. There's only one drawer, but it won't open. It seems jammed, rather than locked, since there's no keyhole.

    >Check sink.
    There's a small depression on the surface, just beside the sink's basin. Otherwise the sink is unremarkable, if a bit bare.

    >Try using Ruby's hand on the palm scanner.
    Ruby's palm doesn't work. The machine beeps once with a very incorrect-sounding beep, and a tiny red light blinks a few times.

    >Carefully take a piece of glass from the window (or broken lying around) and slice open and cut the dummy apart.
    The glass is too dangerously sharp to use as a tool, and the dummy's exterior is thick and padded. Ruby's skin gives way before the dummy's and she accidentally cuts her palm with the glass.

    Is it within Ruby's current means to take down the tarp? It seems we've tried several ideas, but for the sake of preventing "stand on your head, hold a coin between ruby's toes and scrape off the nails" posts, let us know if we can do it or not.

    Similarly, is it within Ruby's current capacity to open the box?

    If no to these questions, have Ruby exit the room. We can always come back with the assistance of tools at a later time. Finding Tom should also be a matter of principle, and most likely we'd have to leave the room for that.

    >attempt to remove the nails holding the tarp by standing on the "Do Not Open" box and remove the nails with the coins
    The nails aren't in all the way, so they can't be pried with the coins, but despite her strongest efforts, they still refuse to be pulled out of the wall with Ruby's bare hands.

    First, use the barrel to blockade the left secret door (that we used to enter here) in case it wants to close upon us.

    Go through the Z hatch and see whats new on the other side then. Nothing could be done now.

    Wrap string around coin, throw coin-string through level, pull

    Worth a shot, I guess.

    Can we check the blood for anything before we go through the Z hatch, possibly something's covered in the blood.
