Success

Death in the Flit

[…] the Captain unexpectedly disarms you […] you swing the hatchet desperately. It connects with a sickening thud and Vendrick's head spins away […] When Feducci hands you the purse of blood-gold, he sounds odd. Different. Hungry, perhaps?

Description summary:
You are on the losing side when you find a wood-axe and behead Vendrick with it. Whether or not that was an accident, he is permanently dead. Feducci is very interested in you now.

Failure

A long drop

You lose track of him for a moment […] and then he is upon you […] You slip on your own blood and plunge backwards. The empty air hums past. You slam into a stone lion, a gargoyle, a classical portico, and oh God, is that railings down there? […]

Description summary:
You lose sight of Vendrick, allowing him to wound you. You slip on your own blood and plunge to your (temporary) death from the top of the Flit.
