Choice Text and Results

Just chat

"Hey…" he looks at you for a moment. "I'm sorry, but I'm awful with names… and faces, hence the whole," he waves his hand in front of his visible skull. "Not really, but it's a good joke to break the ice when I have no idea who I'm talking to."

Or, after giving him a drink?

"Hey…" he looks around. "Nice to see you again and all, but I've got some drinks to drink and businesses to business."

Offer a drink

As you approach, Griffin turns his eternal grin towards you. "You have some of the hard stuff for me? Better make it something special, because I've got a lot of drinks and only so much tolerance left to spend."

"Sad but true." He shakes his head.

Offer up black liquor

""I…" he pauses with his hand on the bottle, "don't even know what this is, but I'll drink it in honor of my new best friend!"

He kicks back a taste and pauses for a moment as the darkness spreads through his organs. "Oooooo, chilly all the way down."
(Lose black liquor, remove this option.)

(Lose gin and tonic, remove this option.)

Lets you buy from him?

Hand some grain alcohol

"Grain? Alcohol?" he gingerly accepts the jar from your hands. "You, my newfound friend, are not messing around."
(Lose grain alcohol, remove this option.)

Look to buy

"Ah, yeah, I get a shipment a day and try to set some things aside for my friends."

He pauses, talking to other people until you think he's ignoring you, then turns back. "So I don't have anything for you."

A few people in the crowd laugh, but most roll their eyes like it's the fourth time today he's used the same line.

Or, after giving him a drink:

"Every day, I pick a couple of things up, but most of the stuff gets grabbed right away. I'll try to keep stuff that interests you, but…"

"Well, take a look." He sends over a list to your comm. "Everything's 300 credits because… well, because I'm lazy and it's easier this way."

"Oh, and everyone gets one a day so I don't get bought out by one rich asshole. Yeah, I know right? We even get them here. There goes the neighborhood."

Or, after already buying something that day:

"Hey, come back tomorrow. I'm sure I'll have more stuff. Gotta keep the economy flowing, right?"

"And by 'economy,' I mean 'whatever the hell we have down here.'"
