Success

That had to hurt

You 'chance upon' the new couple […]. They are too polite not to talk a while. Before long, you are regaling the poor man with all manner of shocking tales about his beloved. Many of them are even true. She will never talk her way out of this one.

Rare Success

Better Than Planned

You engineer a 'casual' encounter with the pair, halfway through their romantic, twilit promenade through Tyrant's Gardens. You drop hints, insinuate, flatter and lie.


Failure

A united front

You buttonhole the lucky gentleman, and artlessly let slip a few unsavoury secrets about his beloved. But it's not working. The more you try, the less likely it seems that you'll be able to crowbar a space between these two.
