Encounter Conditions

Cleared the Unruly Tiger encounter without harassing the bartender?

Initial Text

The bartender gives you a nod as you make your way back to the bar and points up at a chalk menu. It's mostly different kinds of house-brewed beers, but a few mixed drinks as well, all of them far more expensive than you'd expect outside of Downtown.

It goes back to cleaning some glasses, a synthesized track playing reminiscent of humming.

Talk patrons

The bartender nods and drops into what sounds like a rehearsed speech. "Well, we've got good eggs and bad eggs. Rebellious kids and rejuvenated retirees. Hackers and killers. We take all kinds as long as you don't tow the company line and aren't too attached to the human form."

"Oh, speaking of bad eggs, thanks for helping out with that situation early. The kids playing gangland make-believe are always more dangerous than the real thing… unless you piss the real thing off."

It leans forward theatrically and stage-whispers. "Don't piss them off. Or do, especially if they're the Third Eye. Pill pushers."

Talk cyberware

"Ah, God, cyberware. It's a thing of beauty, isn't it? Taking your body, making it something you want to live in rather than something you're stuck with?"

It cocks its head to the side. "Got a few full-conversions like me and Griffin… just enough human left to know 'human' is bullshit. He's the skeleton. Friendly enough and a good hookup if you want to follow in his footsteps."

"Oh, yeah, Griffin still does the 'he' thing. I stick with 'it' because I'll stick with whatever isn't human, thanks."

"If you don't want to go down all the way with Griffin, most folks here just drop by the cybernetics store across the way. You know, support your local businesses, fight the man and… there aren't many other places that sell the stuff we want anyway."

(Unlocks Griffin's Court encounter.)

Or, if Griffin is dead:

"Ah, God, cyberware. It's a thing of beauty, isn't it? Taking your body, making it something you want to live in rather than something you're stuck with?"

It sighs. "But since your whole fight with Griffin, the only supplier we've got are those butch… fine folks across the street. Good work."

It pauses, letting the emotion drain from its voice. "So you'd better head over there. I'm sure you'll get along just fine."

Talk Third Eye

"Hmmmm?" it nods. "The Third Eye should be welcome here and, well, they technically are, at least the ones that get the skull implants. It's a good look, I'll grant them that."

"But Midgard seems to like them dealing Eclipse and that's something we're not fans of here. I haven't tried it myself, not enough meat left for most drugs to work, but Midgard can go suck a gun barrel."

Talk Halloween

October 21, 2017 until ???:

There's a faint electronic crackle as it begins to speak. "Ahhhh, Halloween, the one night a year we can reveal our true forms."

"Well, I'd like to say that. But it's more like the one night a year all the poseurs come out. The rich, not you-and-I rich, but Silver Towers rich, they'll swap out their cyberlimbs for something a little more festive."

A sound plays, reminiscent of a heavy exhalation of breath. "It could be beautiful, but it's just always so commercialized."

Leave him be

It gives you a nod as you pass.

(Walk Away)
