How convenient.

This way everyone wins!

Pretty sure Malhart is dead or has become the graffiti...

Subtle blackmailing here. Future antidote delivery are conditional on Malhart accepting.

And there's no doubt that it's gonna be a trap. Even if probably not a direct trap -- Malhart may very well be allowed to leave after the meeting, but Veda will have a way (read: probably Noah) of tracking him from then on.

I have had an idea about what the Empire's (or at least Veda's) end goal here might actually be. I've suspected it for a bit and this does seem to move it in that direction. We'll see how it plays out.

@Aston Some of the graffiti said "the artist isn't home right now." That implies that the artist is capable of being home, some of the time.

I do think she's up to something, but it may not be as simple as a trap...but I'll say no more on that. :)

Veda strikes me as the sort of person who needs people to believe her when she says something outlandish, and so will probably stick to her word whenever possible. Otherwise, no one would go along with her outlandish schemes.

You may end up paying later, but only because of something she forgot to mention...

This is definitely one of those not-technically-a-lie kind of deals. I agree with Tssha; Veda's schemes kind of depend on her word being reliable, since she's doing so much that's new and unusual.

Press X to doubt.

Hope there is not tracing magic on this potion... o.o

25305 - It only implies. The artist may be never home or almost always home, or ...

I doubt the antidote is dangerous itself. Veda seem more resource conscious than the more tyrannical Empire.

@Brilland: In theory, yes, but that talking door has it's limitations, (spotting astral projections for example) who's to say if that thing was even capable of understanding the concept of death?
