1 - Before accepting her job
2 - Once you accept her job
3 - After saying you're from Yggdrasil

Intro (before accepting her job)

(Before telling about the Fangs)

Hello? How did you get this number?

Just overheard it
Destroying the Fangs
Wouldn't you like to know?
I'm from Yggdrasil (If you got her contact from the Fang PDA)
Nevermind (End of conversation)

(After telling about the Fangs)

Yes, what do you want?

Information about Eclipsea
A job
Nothing, I'm good (End of conversation)

Just overheard it/Wouldn't you like to know?

Hmmm, well, good bye then.

(End of conversation)

Destroying the Fangs

(If you haven't finished the Docks Quest:)

Hmmmmm… that doesn't seem to be the case. Good bye.

(End of conversation)

(If you finished the Docks Quest:)

(If you killed the gang boss:)
Hmmmm? True enough it seems.

Well, alright then, what do you want?

(If you let the gang boss go and didn't destroy the crates. Or if you chose to "Go for sabotage" in the Fang Boss encounter. Or if you failed to defeat the Gang Boss and got the Spooked noncombat.)
Not… entirely true. But thank you for not breaking my toys.

What can I help you with?

Information about Eclipsea
A job
Some cred
Nothing (End of conversation)

Information about Eclipsea

Not really at liberty to say much to those inside the organization, let alone outsiders.

Have a good day.

End of conversation

A job/Sure!

Excellent, happy to have you on our side. I'll work out the details for delivery and so forth from my side.

Call back when you have a few.

(End of conversation)

Some cred

Credits? How gauche.

Well, if you want a job, that I can do. Might throw in a cred bonus later.

Sure!
No thanks (End of conversation)


Intro (after accepting her job)

(Before questioning her involvement with Midgard:)

Hello, what do you need?

Information about Eclipseb
A shipment of Eclipse
The Third Eye wants Eclipse (After you've talked to Hawk about eclipse or releasing your friends)
The Third Eye backed out Only if you free/kill the hostages and then tell Hawk about it
Information on Yggdrasil (Only if you know about Yggdrasil)

(After questioning her involvement with Midgard:)

What do you need?
Information about Eclipseb
A shipment of Eclipse
Information on Yggdrasil (Only if you know about Yggdrasil)

Information about Eclipseb

(Before asking about Midgard:)

I can't tell you much about Eclipse. Suffice it to say, we want to get it out to as many people as possible.

Even if that means giving it out for free.

(Before talking about her with the slimy man:)
(End of conversation)

(After talking about her with the slimy man:)
Don't you work for Midgard?
Thanks (End of conversation)

(After asking about Midgard:)

There isn't much I'm allowed to tell you at this stage. The fact you know I work for Midgard is already a… dangerous wrinkle.

It's as much for your benefit as for mine that you don't bring that to anyone's attention.

How is Midgard involved?
Why is it so cheap?
Okay (End of conversation)

Don't you work for Midgard?

Ha, yes, I do work for Midgard. Not a bad gig, if I must say.

I'd appreciate if you didn't go spreading that around, though.

Of course not
Make it worth my while
Let me think about it

Of course not

Ah, good, I appreciate that. Keep up the good work.

(End of conversation)

Make it worth my while

Hah, I suppose I can expect that. Very well, I'll start slipping a few extra cred in with your daily shipment.

(End of conversation)

Let me think about it

Fair enough. Don't take too long, though, or I might get… nervous.

(End of conversation)

How is Midgard involved?

What does Midgard have to do with this? As little as possible.

It's important we leave them out of this.

(End of conversation)

Why is it so cheap?

Stay happy with your 100% profit margin and call it a day. We need to cover as much area as possible with this. The costs incurred, or not incurred in your case, are secondary.

(End of conversation)

A shipment of Eclipse

(First time per day:)

Yes, of course. It's in the mail.

(You receive a message:)

Here's your shipment for today. Make sure to spread it around.

You found: 2-3 crates of Eclipse

(Or, if you've distributed a lot of eclipse:)

Here's your shipment for today. Make sure to spread it around.

I included a little something extra for you. Keep up the good work.

You found 39-60 credits! (Only after blackmailing her)
You found: 3-4 crates of Eclipse
You found: 1 of: fresh cred chip, Nitro, targeting circuit, Midgard MK9

(Further times:)

You've already had your share today. I only have so much to go around. Either wait until tomorrow or bring me something big.

(End of conversation)

The Third Eye wants Eclipse

(First time:)

Hmmm… the Third Eye? Supplying them would be a major move, disrupting their existing suppliers. I need to know the transition will go seamlessly. No flaws, no muss, no fuss.

So, you need to prove that you've got what it takes to handle that kind of operation and take care of the tail that their old suppliers have following you.

(End of conversation)

(Further times:)

Take care of that tail and we can talk about the Third Eye.

Tell me about the tail
Were you going to tell me?
He's dead
Do you trust me?
I'll get started (End of conversation)

(Hammer dealt with:)

No, no, I don't think so. Taking over that contract would draw too much attention to ourselves.

We need to prove we're indispensable before that might work. Help expand the network, though, and that'd be a major coup.

(End of conversation)

(Hammer dealt with and enough eclipse distributed:)

Hmmmm… yes, I think we've reached a point where we can take over the Third Eye's contract without risking destruction. Go ahead. I'll funnel Eclipse to them directly.

(End of conversation)

(Telling her again after she's already agreed)

I've already agreed. I think it'll go through.

(End of conversation)

Tell me about the tail

A bit. He's a cyborg, more metal than person. Almost indestructible, not sure I'd bother trying.

He's also hard to miss if he's exposed. He'll usually hide in a crowd or wait out of sight, but get him somewhere quiet or enclosed and he should be easy to pick out.

Did you plan on telling me?
Alright, thanks (End of conversation)

Were you going to tell me?/Did you plan on telling me?

Hmm? No. They don't have anything against you. They're just using you to keep an eye on my plans.

My plans, my problem. You have your plans with the Third Eye, now it's your problem.

(End of conversation)

He's dead

Well, my sources disagree. Either you missed one or your killing… isn't quite so thorough as you imagined. If you believe in any gods, I'd advised praying it's the former.

Do you trust me?

(With no Dr. Thomas quest progress)

Heh, no. I don't know you from Adam. Prove yourself, take care of the tail, and come back. Then we'll have a serious chat about the Third Eye.

(End of conversation)

(With some crates handed out:)

You've made some progress, but I'm not sure you've really got what it takes yet.

(End of conversation)

(After having distributed enough Eclipse for her to trust you to supply the Third Eye)

Of course not, but you've proven yourself competent to handle this transaction, so that will do.

(End of conversation)

The Third Eye backed out

Hmm? The Third Eye backed out of the deal… well, probably the best for everyone involved.

That move was a bit risky. Keep your eye out for other big scores, though. We need to establish the distribution network, after all.

(End of conversation)

Information on Yggdrasil

Cube.jpg

Click.

(End of conversation)


Intro (after telling her that you're from Yggdrasil)

Yeah, what do you want?

How's it going?
Let me help
Who's Sigmund? (After "Let me help")
Where's the Profit?
Nevermind (End of conversation)

I'm from Yggdrasil

And you found this line? I guess that's moderately impressive.

Here's a free tip: if you're thinking of messing with me, don't. I've had a bad couple days and I know the guy who runs one of our drone plants in Siberia.

(End of conversation)

How's it going?

Before telling her that you shut down the Docks:

If you're stupid enough to expect a real answer, you're almost stupid enough to trust with the real answer. But I'm not really the trusting type.

Aren't we a team?
Screw off (End of conversation)

After:

I make a policy of not revealing my plans or positions to people that have stabbed me once already.

Aren't we a team?

I'm not sure what it said on the package of your My Little Idoru MBA, but in the real world "rated based on your performance" means "cut everyone else's throats."

Every shipment you distribute counts as two if it means someone above you didn't get to distribute one. You can pretend it isn't zero sum, but if you think you can afford a handicap starting this late… well, you're dumber than I thought already… which is pretty damned impressive.

(End of conversation)

Let me Help

Before telling her that you shut down the Docks:

Nobody likes a suck-up, but I'll give you some free advice: I've got Southside and the Docks, so stay away from them if you value your position.

I'd go after the Third Eye. Sigmund's had them spread too thin and you can probably grab the college market.

Who's Sigmund?
You had Southside and the Docks
Thanks (End of conversation)

After:

Yeah, I think you've helped enough already.

(End of conversation)

Who's Sigmund?

Before telling her that you shut down the Docks:

They just dumped you right into this, didn't they?

How long ago did you graduate? Nevermind, don't answer that, it'll just depress me.

Anyway, Sigmund's the biggest fish in the pond. If you cut him off, half the distribution in the city goes uncontrolled.

I can't get you in touch with him, but I hear he responds to smoke signals from Third Eye funeral pyres.

Which might even work literally.

(End of conversation)

After:

Sigmund's the one you should have stabbed in the back. He runs half of Yggdrasil already and I guarantee if they spin off another project he's heading it up.

I'm all but out thanks to your stunt. So, unless the burbs join up or someone cracks Downtown, he's got a lock.

(End of conversation)

You had Southside and the Docks

Heh. So it's your fault, then?

That makes me feel a bit better, I suppose. I thought it was some lone vigilante.

(End of conversation)

Where's the profit

Before telling her that you shut down the Docks:

The money? Are they having you work for free? That might explain the level of talent you've shown so far.

Oh, wait, you mean for management? Yeah, no idea. I've found it's best just to do what you're told.

(End of conversation)

After:

You mean for us or Midgard? For us, the money's in winning. I mean, we'll all get paychecks until we end up in the lake. But the big money's in running projects and let's just say they've implied this is a test.

Not sure what's in it for management, though. They get that a lot, though.

(End of conversation)

Info on that

  • Starts the Dr. Thomas Quest
  • Asking for a 'Shipment of Eclipse' gives you a mail message with 2-5 crates of Eclipse
  • After progressing a certain amount in the Dr. Thomas quest, asking for a 'Shipment of Eclipse' will give 3-6 crates of Eclipse and an item (fresh cred chip, Nitro, targeting circuit, Midgard MK9).
  • Asking for 'Information about eclipse' makes her end the conversation unless you've learned she works for Midgard, then you can either ask her to make it worth your while, or promise not to tell.
    • Promising not to tell lets you ask about Midgard's involvement and why it's so cheap, but she still doesn't give a good answer to either.
    • If you care to blackmail her, she agrees to slip a few extra creds (47-60?) in per shipment, but doesn't seem too bothered by it.
  • If you get her contact info from the Fang PDA and you tell her that you're from Yggdrasil, you can't start her quest. If you got her contact info from the FANG PDA and you tell her that you destroyed the Fangs first before mentioning Yggdrasil, you can still work for her.

If you want to fund the Third Eye, she tells you to get rid of the tail following you (The Hammer)
He's near-indestructible and it takes several fights to get rid of him (or some clever electronics). Dr. T. then tells me he's just using me to keep an eye on her plans. Once you lose the tail, she will supply the Third Eye.
