Illium: A Troublemaker Walkthrough
Once you speak with Conrad Verner, he believes the bar is a font for distributing red sand, a powerful drug, and that he was given this information by the Gateway Personal Defense dealer.
The bartender insists that the bar does not sell red sand. When confronted with this information, the dealer reveals that her motives were to get the deed of the bar in order to advance her business. You now have the option to use Charm or Intimidate, if you have the option available.
You can play along with the dealer and persuade her to demand the deed herself, leading to her arrest because the owner had surveillance and security following the previous events with Conrad Verner. He will be confused about what has just happened. You can:
- Lie to him, stating that the dealer was actually a deep cover operative belonging to a terrorist cell and his contribution helped a lot. (Charm)
- Tell him that he ruined everything (Intimidate)
- Tell him the truth about what actually happened.
You can threaten the dealer and make her lie to Conrad Verner, telling him that he helped take care of the red sand dealers, this nets you a discount at her store. You can:
- You can tell Conrad Verner that he did well, but he should stop
- You can lie to him telling him that the operation was dangerous and he could have been killed, this leads to Conrad apologizing to you.
