What is Decay Terminal Duty?
The Decay Terminal has an addictive nature and any human who begins interacting with it, will find it difficult to do anything but explore and talk about it. As they do this,
files appear in recorded portable media storage devices (currently a floppy disk)
and usually take the form of images, audio, or (rarely) video files that are anomalous in nature though have little to no memetic quality themselves.
Their sole notable characteristic is that they can be used to track the percent of decay as it has been found that the
images from the Decay Terminal are more sensitive to Decay activity than those from most data storage devices.
Agents who are on Decay Monitor duty are not to interact with other Tesseract Staff, except through written communication.
Agents who are on Decay Monitor duty may be prone to delusions, paranoia, and/or violent tendencies.
Tesseract Agents on Decay Monitor duty tend to forget that they are monitoring an anomalous item if they have been on duty for over a year.
They will still report the Decay activity to the Decay Log compulsively.
They will usually have delusions that the Decay Terminal is some other device (past iterations: a portable television, a radio, a telegraph, a walkie-talkie).
A shift on the Decay Terminal is permanent.
What is A Decay Terminal?
A Decay Terminal is a contained anomalous Tesseract Asset able to track the Decay of [data expunged] including the Decay taking place in the Breach.
Through the monitoring and a log of Decay activity it is believed that
The Tesseract Society may be able to calculate the precise date of “Decay Day”
or the final date at which [data expunged].
It is unknown how exactly the Decay Terminal functions as it does.
It is believed that other Decay Terminals exist though it is unclear what they may look like.
