Choice Text and Results

Here you go

He takes the shipment from you, his smile faltering a bit. "You do a good job with this. My smugglers… not so much."

"But enough of that sad story, let's talk about the one you wanted to hear. The analyzer you want was smuggled into the city in two pieces. One was legal, the other… not so much."

He chuckles to himself and sips at his vodka tonic. "The legal part is called… reaction chamber. Needed to keep the whole thing from exploding."

"The other half is the emitter. It's not legal… the stuff it's made from isn't legal… even in Eurasia. Anyway, it's shipped in little lead box, yes? Smuggler saw too much Midgard, got spooked and got herself caught. Meanwhile, other smuggler with other half gets spooked from her getting caught, tries to dump the cargo and gets caught."

"He got released, I think, but she's dead. As far as I know, Midgard took both pieces to their warehouse by the Docks."

I opened it

He blinks a couple times, then folds his hands in front of his mouth. "You… opened it? Why? Why I am surrounded by people constantly doing such stupid things? Could you explain this to me?"

He leans back and sighs. "Fine, just give me the gun."

Nevermind, I'll pay the 500

He nods eagerly as you transfer the credits over. "Good, good. Yes, good."

"Alright, here is story. Two smugglers carry cargo for me. Each carries one half, so Midgard doesn't know. One piece, though, it is still illegal." The arms dealer shakes his head.

"She gets caught, smuggling radioactive materials. He panics, tries to dump his half. Midgard gets him too. Which teaches you… don't be a coward, you know? Anyway, she disappears and Midgard slaps his wrist."

He leans in a bit closer and lowers his voice, almost fading entirely below the soft chatter of the VIP Room. "So both halves are in Midgard warehouse, near the docks. First half, illegal half, called 'emitter.' Probably stored in vault or hazmat room. Other half is called 'reaction chamber.' It could be anywhere, probably waiting to be auctioned or sent to one of their labs."

He slides back to his old position and finishes off his drink. "Well, that's good. I can make amends, you can get your gadget… everything is square."

(Lose 500 credits)

I'll go get it

Working on it!

He shakes his head. "Of course, of course. No need to think of my schedule."
