Fortnight Discussion: Clerks
I recently realized that I didn’t have any character class that could function as a generic “work the desk/counter” NPC. Thus, the “Clerk” was born in Alpha 37. Right now, the Clerk can be found in the following buildings:
- Movie Theater
- Office Building
- Hotel
- Ice Rink
- Arcade
- Hospital
- Bank
- Science Lab
- TV Station (coming soon)

He doesn’t do anything right now, but I thought it might be cool to have him perform a different function or functions based on the building where he resides. So, I thought y’all might provide some input on this.

Here are some ideas:

Bank: lets you deposit money to him, so that the next time a Bank shows up ,you can withdraw any money you have previously given him,even if it was on a previous floor.

Hospital:Sells items such as First Aid Kits and other medical items.

Arcade: You can pay him to rig Slot Machines so that you have a higher chance of winning.

- Movie Theater; pay $50 for a ham sandwhich
- Office Building; invest in their company stock
- Hotel; Buy a key for the building
- Ice Rink; sells shoes to prevent/encourage sliding
- Arcade; buy/exchange tickets for vanity prizes (mood ring, voodo doll, etc)
- Hospital; donate blood (HP) for money
- Bank; Deposit and withdraw items (because inventory space is too small)
- Science Lab; ask them to bring up a scientist for identifying your syringes

Ask them to bring you the manager.

Gameplaywise it would be something that lets you be alone in a room for a while or maybe the manager is your assassination target and it would be a way to bring him near you.

Movie Theater should sell overpriced food.
Office buildings could sell one random good that they specialize in.
Hotels allow you to buy the key.
Bank lets you deposit money and then later retrieve it, giving you interest for the longer it stays in the bank.

Certain clerks could want a particular form in duplicate/triplicate and then you would need to find a way to take out several other clerks on that floor to loot those forms off the bodies. Or bribe/threaten the forms out of them.
Perhaps threatening the other clerks in front of the clerk that wants the forms would make that clerk start to refuse you, and so there could be a variety of options to try to lure those other clerks away so you can bribe/threaten/kill them out of view of the clerk who you want to give the paperwork to. Once you finally get the paperwork to him, then he gives something lovely (plus unlock the character to play).
I say you should make it so that you can bribe him for the key to the building as an option
If clerks are attacked, they can call over guards or even the police
Science Lab: Sells syringes and pills and shows you what they do
Hospital: Sell medkit or call over a doctor to heal you at a price

- Movie Theater: Sell tickets for movies (duh) Also makes sure you dont sneak in without paying
- Office Building: If you start attack, he will say "i dont get paid enough for this" and runs out, without doing the slightest thing to stop you.
- Hotel: Checks you in (you can spend money, then the screen will fade black, you will recover hp and less persistent attackers will return to their normal feelings toward you.
- Ice Rink
- Arcade: Mabey add some minigames, so you can play them on the arcade cabinets. Then the clerk will sell you tokens to use to play the machines, whick will spit out tickets if you win, you can then use these (like 5 tickets) to get a cool trinket, sort of like a goodie dispenser.
- Hospital: Calls over doctor, makes sure you dont disturb patients (like a bouncer, but for the hospital)
- Science Lab
- TV Station (coming soon)

i dont know if this really in the game and unobtainable but if so you can make it that the Clerk on the hotels could sell this for a bit more than 150$

I like your idea but it should be where you can do things like buy the general store stock which makes it where you can get free items from all general stores

The Hotel is the best idea ever , its like another way to stealthy get the key . It should be overprised though . The hospital one was really smart too . I hope the senpai notices you :)
