Choice Text and Results

Say you're broke

He winds up into rant about people lying to him just to get out of paying the fee. You're eventually able to get away, but that ringing in your ears isn't going anywhere.

You congratulate yourself for not strangling him, though.

You've earned 2 XP in Will

Or, if you have <10 credits:

He starts winding up into rant about people lying to him just to get out of paying the fee. But you show him your account balance on your comm, which shuts him down quickly.

(Unknown if this takes an Energy)

Have ten (Good: 1)

"Thanks!" It takes a minute to complete the transaction, but he thanks you profusely for supporting the arts.

You've earned 3 XP in Will

Take fifty! (Good: 1)

"Oh! Tell you what, you can have one of these guidebooks too!" He hands you the book and completes the transaction, humming a strange melody you feel like you should recognize.

You found: painting guidebook

(You lose 50 credits)

I already paid!

If you haven't paid today:

He winds up into rant about people lying to him just to get out of paying the fee. You're eventually able to get away, but that ringing in your ears isn't going anywhere.

You congratulate yourself for not strangling him, though.

You've earned 2 XP in Will

If you have paid today:

He checks over his comm real quick. "Of course, of course you did, sorry."

See Walk Away

Lunge for him

You lunge for him. He drops something on the ground, but brings his fists up in a pathetic attempt to defend himself.

(Fight Hipster; can also get museum-guidebook in addition to normal drops)

Garotte him

You slip behind him and haul back on his neck until the garotte snaps in your hands, then drag the body into a storage room. You're confident no one heard his gasping cries.

You learned a new Technique: Lace Garotte

Lose your equipped yellowed lace garotte.

Ask about Halloween

In the lead-up to Halloween 2016 (October 21st, 2016)

You manage to distract him from his talk of "ten credits" and change the topic to Halloween. He seems… conflicted.

"I'm always excited about Halloween, but they keep moving the site. Can't it just come back here to the museum?"

Ignore him

He goes on and on and on about the donation. Do they have a class teaching people to be this annoying?

You should get some kind of prize for not strangling him, but instead you just get some quality time staring at the paintings and pretending he's not talking.
