Choice Text and Results

Buy him another

He takes his new over/under from the bartender and carefully tilts it, watching the colors slip over each other. "So, seen you throwing your weight around. What you here for?"

Lose 12 credits.

Or, if you don't have 12 credits:

"Awwww, awwww c'mon. Don't be saying you can buy a man a drink without being able to follow through. They got a special hell for people like that… right next to the fish people… right next to 'em."

On the bright side, he doesn't seem terribly interested in attacking you.

Nothing, what about you

(If on the University Quest)

The thug leans back, with his new over/under in hand. He waits for a moment… thinks about nursing it… then slams it back.

"Ahhhhhh, thanks friend, that hit the spot. Its been a long week."

"Guard duty's the pits," he slurs through his liquor. "Crazy witch… and I mean that, I mean witch… crazy witch, down in the lab's basement. It's like, it's like…"

He stares off into space for several seconds. "It's like she's gonna hack into your brain. Right into your brain. She's crazy."

(Unlocks Boiler Room)

(Otherwise)

He nods and slams his new over/under. "Finally off guard duty. Jus' waiting for a new assignment, ya know? Life's lookin' up with that crazy witch gone."

Looking to join up

"You wanna join the Eye?" he looks you up and down, sizing you up.

"Yeah, alright. I can put a word in with the boss here. But you've gotta do something for me first. That's how this works."

I'll do it

He nods. "Alright, deal. There's a pool shark that works the tables towards the back. He's got a watch of mine, I want it back."

"Doesn't matter any how he ends up, just get me that watch, clear?"

Could I have some details?

He shakes his head and turns back towards the bar. "That's cool. I knew you weren't cut out for the Eye."
