**I haven't found any information on CT scans being able to confirm someone's mental health, so if this is untrue or simply newly discovered information,they certainly wouldn't be doing such in the game. Also, little kids are allowed to wander with pretty much no supervision where bears and cougars with psychic abilities roam, safety is just an afterthought in the camp.



* How do the other campers put together their PSI Challenge Markers? I was under the impression that Raz is the only camper who knows about Ford's sanctuary, but maybe not?

**Maybe they just go through Sasha or Milla?


** The thing is, the Milkman seems like he wasn't supposed to spring awake BEFORE Oleander told him so. Oleander must have put him here so that he gets into Molotov-throwing when he hears some kind of password (that Fred must have said accidentally), so that when it's pronounced before regular Boyd, the Milkman wakes up just long enough to set fire to everything and then disappears. When Raz makes the Milkman take control of Boyd, he still needs the password before he can accomplish his mission.

Added DiffLines:

** The coach probably hands out tons of pamphlets on the off season of the camp, tracking down potential recruits or jsut spreading them around hoping for a lucky hit, the memory hints at the first, but considering how many pamphlets he must have handed out, and the fact that the only sign of Raz's talent before he started learning at camp was resistance to mind reading, how would any recruiter know without a bunch of effort, heck the coach only calls raz one in a million after all three of the staff fail to mind read him while working together, which wouldn't be an option they would take while just handing out pamphlets, to the coach Raz was just another kid

Added DiffLines:

** Because some of them have four fingers and others have five fingers.


* Why do some of the characters like Lili have four fingers while others such as Raz have fire fingers?

Added DiffLines:

*** That would make sense if it were a joke -- like saying "See you next century!" the day before the first one of the new century -- rather than an indication that it hasn't been used in a long time. I'd chalk it up to Maloof either lying or believing someone else's lie or assumption.

* If Boyd was supposed to burn down the asylum after Oleander released the Milkman, and then Raz accidentally set that in motion, then why did he stand there for so long holding the flaming milk bottle before Fred came along and encouraged him to proceed? Was something holding him back?
