The Unwilling Merchant's Foster
All Alignment Quest
Whichever option you select, the following Bonus Quest will activate:
[Your Sworn Sword] is able to convince Obara that Denyo is a beautiful young daughter of another house. She willingly takes "her" as her apprentice.
Obara is grateful for the protection of her goods, and grudgingly agrees to take Denyo on. "Though nothing good ever came of House Vance.
Enough coins and Obara forgets her objections to Denyo's apprenticing. "Maybe something good can come of [Your Friend's House] after all," she shrugs.
The incentive of several casks of oil sweetens Obara's favor towards Denyo. "I'll remember this favor," [Your Friend] smiles.
[Your Sworn Sword] uses rumor of Obara's shady dealings to pressure her into taking Denyo. "Well played indeed," [Your Friend] smiles.
[Your Sworn Sword] keeps Obara's caravans from traveling until she agrees to apprentice Denyo. "We're in your debt," [Your Friend] smiles.
[Your Sworn Sword] convinces Obara that Denyo is a bright, eager son of another house entirely. Denyo agrees to favor [Your House] in future trade.
Protection of her wares makes Obara agree to take Denyo on, and Denyo promises [Your Sworn Sword] that future trades with [Your Friend's House] will be favorable.
Some coin is enough to convince Obara to take Denyo on. Denyo agrees in turn future favorable trade between [Your Friend's House] and [Your House].
The oil secures Denyo a position with Obara. "Trade between [Your Friend's House] and [Your House] will always be favorable," he promises.
Threatened with exposure of shady dealings, Obara takes Denyo on. "Trade between [Your Friend's House] and [Your House] will be fruitful," Denyo smiles.
Obara yields to end the blockade, and Denyo is pleased. "I'll see to it that trade between [Your Friend's House] and [Your House] goes well."
