Need to have saved the art student in Problems on the Docks, and then wait for at least one rollover.

A young man, dressed like so many others here, runs out of a crowd of students only to drop to his knees in front of you. "You've got to help me out! Somebody kidnapped my friend and the cops won't help at all."

Choice Text and Results

I'll look around

He exhales a long-held breath. "Thank you so much! I knew you'd come through!"

Start The Missing Artist quest.

Why me?

(If you never talked to Maxwell about the Problems on the Docks quest)

He chuckles a bit, his expression lightening. "I totally should have started with that, shouldn't I? When he got back from last time, the first thing he drew was this."

He holds up a sketch of you. It's so perfect it's kind of eerie, particularly with the staring whirlpool of flames in the background.

"So I'm not sure if you helped him last time or if it's a sign or what, but when I saw you, I knew you could help out."

(Otherwise)

He sighs heavily. "Well, you totally saved him last time. I mean… then we couldn't go to the cops because it was a drug thing, right? But now they're just being useless."

Okay, fine/Can't say no to that*

He exhales a long-held breath. "Thank you so much! I knew you'd come through!"

Start The Missing Artist quest.

I'll think about it

He nods sadly. "Yeah, it's not as though I can make you, right? I'll check back with the police… maybe see you tomorrow, whatever."

(Makes the encounter go away, presumably for the day)

What's in it for me?

(If you never talked to Maxwell about the Problems on the Docks quest)

He shrugs. "I've got a PDA and some cred. You're welcome to both if you want them. Totally fine by me."

(Otherwise)

He looks around, as though expecting someone else on the Quad to give him a better answer. "Yeah, I've got nothing, really. I gave my PDA and all my spare chips to you after you picked him up last time."

He sighs and gives you a worldly smile you wouldn't expect from a student. "Yeah. I suppose having friends is pretty expensive."

I'll help anyway/Alright, deal

He exhales a long-held breath. "Thank you so much! I knew you'd come through!"

Start The Missing Artist quest.

Um, who are you?

"I'm his friend Max. We have a ton of classes together and he lives on my floor."

He pauses for a second, staring off towards the art museum. "Well, friends might be a bit strong. I don't really know what he thinks of me, but he's a great artist and needs somebody to look after him."

"That's normally me, but I definitely need a hand this time."

Sure, I'll help

He exhales a long-held breath. "Thank you so much! I knew you'd come through!"

The coin in your hand grows hot. (With an unearthly coin equipped)

Start The Missing Artist quest.

Not right now

He nods sadly. "Yeah, it's not as though I can make you, right? I'll check back with the police… maybe see you tomorrow, whatever."

(Makes the encounter go away, presumably for the day)

Yeah, not happening
