Success

The Passion of a Clay Man

Was that the glint of a tear? Or just a bit of quartz? In either case it is clear that the manservant cares deeply for the missing Comtessa. You manage to coax three words from him:

"She. Is. Beneath."


Failure

Silence

The clay manservant simply stares at you. Eventually you are forced to leave out of sheer embarrassment. So that’s where "stonewalling" comes from.
