From: Ambition: Bag a Legend! – Sending the Vake a gift via Wines

Maybe you will have to do this eventually. Maybe you can find another way to reach Veils. But you cannot make this promise now.

Game Instructions: If you choose this route, your Vial of Tears of the Bazaar will be returned to you, and you will be able to return to Mr Wines at a later time. It will cost you another point of Connected: the Masters of the Bazaar to do so. If you had another method of reaching the Vake available, you may also be able to choose that solution.


You hesitate

Mr Wines says: "Think. Then return to us and ask again, when you discover there is not another way."

It does have the courtesy to return your vial.
