Success

He is impressed

His viridian eyes dance with amusement as you haggle over your commission. He does not let you win; but the compromise is fair. Before you leave, he presses a velvet pouch into your hand. ‘A token of my esteem.’


Failure

His kindness turns cold

You press a little too hard for a larger cut of the profits, and the face beneath the bandages tightens. He escorts you from his home without saying anything further.
