  • Almuj Bank Guard: You look like a hardy one, Ragni army is it? Would you be willing to help Almuj a bit?
  • Almuj Bank Guard: Us guards have been trying to root out desert bandits trying to rob the bank.
  • Almuj Bank Guard: We're using reports from witnesses to try to gain information.
  • Almuj Bank Guard: If I give you some of the witness reports, will you help get clues from them?
  • Almuj Bank Guard: Great! The store from the first witness report is straight down the stairs, just past this here building, just behind me.
  • Almuj Bank Guard: The store that you should read the report in is named “Gibbs' Mining Supply Store,” and it's the store that was robbed.

  • You read the report and visualize its words.
  • Business was slow that day, until two rugged, oddly-dressed men stormed into my shop, with a lot of nerve.
  • Shopkeeper Gibbs: Hello gentlemen! What can I interest you in today? Some industrial torches? Pickaxes?
  • Before I could close any deal with them, the man with a dagger started threatening me!
  • Bandit: Shut yer’ trap, old man. We came for a different kind of business.
  • I tried to make peace with the crooks.
  • Shopkeeper Gibbs: Wha-? Look, fellows. Just step out of my store, and nobody gets hurt. I don't want any trouble.
  • The bandit put the knife closer to me and started demanding the code to the TNT vault downstairs!
  • Bandit: Listen up old man, tell us the code to the TNT vault in the basement, or I decorate my necklace with your fingers!
  • Shopkeeper Gibbs: Certainly not! That TNT is for licensed mining companies only, not your average amateur miner.
  • The bandits grew agitated and resorted to violence to obtain the combination.
  • Bandit: Well then! I guess you'll still be able to grasp a pick with four fingers, eh?
  • They swiped their knife at me, leaving a sizeable wound on my arm.
  • Shopkeeper Gibbs: Gaaah! Alright, alright! No more violence, please!
  • I had no choice but to give up the combination, which was 7812.
  • Shopkeeper Gibbs: The code is 7-8-1-2... please don't hurt me!
  • After I gave up the combination, they knocked me out!
  • Bandit: 7-8-1-2... thanks! We won't be needing you anymore... now go to sleep!
  • I had no idea what the criminals did after that, I never went back into my shop after the incident.

  • You read the report and visualize its words.
  • I was having a fine time tending to my rooftop garden after a lengthy day of selling scrolls.
  • While looking down on the street, I saw two unsavory men, one with TNT in hand, marching down the path.
  • I was suspicious, so I tried to get their attention, but they ignored me.
  • Scroll Merchant: Ey', what do you two blighters think you're doing with those dangerous explosives in the city?
  • I then realized that had no innocent itinerary, they were heading straight for my wealthy neighbor's house!
  • I tried to yell for the attention of a guard or official, but nobody could hear me.
  • Scroll Merchant: Guards! Guards! Robber! Come quick! Urgently!
  • Before anybody could hear me, a large explosion occurred inside of the house the bandits intruded.
  • Scroll Merchant: Gaaah!
  • The bandits came sprinting out of my wealthy neighbor's house with two of his most prized possessions: two of his weapons.
  • I wasen't sure what to do at this point... I didn't try to confront them, that'd have been way too risky!
  • I have no idea where they went off to afterwards.
