Choice Text and Results

Grigori sent me

"Ah," she nods, "you're the one my husband asked to look into our daughter. Don't worry, I won't keep you."

(Walk Away)

Or, after helping Sofia:

"Thank you so much for helping Sofia. She's, well, she's back to her old self. Don't believe anyone who says its all roses being a parent."

"Anyway, we're both very thankful and I think it's only fair we help out, well, those bastards have it coming either way, so it's a good excuse." She smiles, almost as though you're the one doing her a favor.

"There are some old tunnels from back when the whole area was Family-run. They've been broken down for years, but they should be able to help move around without Midgard noticing. We'll meet you there when you're ready."

Ask about Sofia

"Well…" she frowns, her practiced demeanor cracking a bit. "She's been really upset about something in school. My husband thinks she's been doing drugs, but I think it's just bullying or she had a fight with her friends or something."

"I haven't seen her friend Mia around for ages. Not that I miss her or her ghastly hair. She was never a good influence but… well… we need all the friends we can get in this life, you know?"

Or, after helping Sofia:

"She's doing much better, thank you for asking. It's like a weight has been lifted off her shoulders. You did a great job."

Just chat

You have a pleasant enough conversation about religion. She actually loses you pretty quickly, getting into some deep theological rabbitholes, but loops back around to talk about more general moral questions as soon as she notices.

You've earned 2 XP in Perception


You have a pleasant enough conversation about the finer things in life: wine, clothes, plays, and the like. Her knowledge on the subjects is surprisingly vast, striking you as something she's actively studied rather than just picking up in high society.

You've earned 2 XP in Perception


You have a pleasant enough conversation about the weather. It's been bad, but not as bad as those rare days the wind comes in over the Slags.

You've earned 2 XP in Perception

Or, with some condition?:

You have a surprisingly illuminating conversation about how the city's policies are making it hard to find work outside of Midgard, skimping on everything from roadwork to schools, while restricting independent businesses. She doesn't explicitly say that Midgard is pressuring the city to enact these policies, but it certainly does sound like it serves their interests.

Attack her

She calmly draws a pistol, not with the uncaring calm you've seen in Southside but with the calm of long practice.

(Fight Family Woman; no effect if you lose/run away; permanently kills her if you win?)

Leave her be

She nods politely as you pass by.

(Walk Away)
