In a recent game a player put an holographic projector in the second floor entrance to the secret room while two players were inside the secret room. Now one of those players play "advance", returning to the second floor entrance. Does "continuing in the same direction" means he advances again, or is he "unable to do so" (as going from the secret room to the entrance is not really a "direction") and he stays in the entrance room? We played it the second way.

Unrelated question - is -1 the minimum alarm rate? 8 is explicitly said to be the maximum but I didn't see anything about -1. Can "secretaries" be used to lower the rate from 0 to -1?

I can only tell you how I would rule for the prototype; I can't give you an official answer (and I don't imagine someone else will).

When moving from the basement to a room with the oil slick, I would say, you do keep moving; if move in got you there from the basement, you move in again, if move out got you there, you move out again.

And the alarm rate can't go below 0.

In the published version, the alarm dial can go to -1, and yes that's the minimum. If you're asking if Secretaries can lower the alarm dial from 0 to -1 even though that's only one step instead of the two steps you're instructed to lower it, the answer is yes it can. Likewise, Secretaries can raise the alarm dial from 7 to 8.

We ruled it:

If advancing out of secret room into projector move to the next room UP.

If retreating out of secret room into projector move to the next room DOWN.

Hope that helps.

Thank you, I didn't expect to get an answer from Donald himself
For me that's about as official as it goes, although it seems like there might have been some changes between his final version and the official one. I thought before (and still think so) that the -1 alarm was added for the "sensitive or faulty alarm" variant. But I guess if it's there you should be able to go there even if you don't start with a "faulty alarm".
