Part 11: Matchmaker

Episode 10: MatchmakerPreviously ~ above Jade Empire, we explored most of Tien"s Landing and helped out Baker Bei, who was gaining beaten up by the regional gang leader"s thugs. Transforms out said gang leader, Ai Ling, to be a childhood girlfriend of Bei"s and also kinda hung up on Bei telling her back then that he"d marry her eventually. We encouraged her the this was incredibly stupid and also she left Bei alone, but our job isn"t rather over yet.

As you can tell indigenous the quest marker, Ai Ling has an additional quest for us and also the name of this upgrade (as well as all the posts since the critical update) must make the pretty noticeable what we"re walking to it is in doing. Before we get to helping she out, let"s do a little bit of experimenting in she boathouse hideout.
*
I mean, we can just run over the without also trying. I intend that might make the thugs a little bit annoyed in ~ us, so possibly we"ll look because that a proper way in.
*
This proper method involves smashing up a vase and stealing the vital that was concealed inside.
*
Now we deserve to open the gate and also enter the main office without anyone bothering us. The security in this gang hideout is not really good.
*
*
There are a pair of clues of attention in the office. The an initial one is this scroll that defines the land of Howling Spirits and also has a couple of words about the heart Monks. Hey, that"s us! Apparently, this was written before the loss of Dirge and the Emperor thefts the strength of the Water Dragon.
*
The vase in the office includes the Gem that Evil thought (+2 to Mind and Intuition), a unique essence gem that is always found in a random location. We uncovered it pretty early here, although we can"t make use of it since the gem can only be fitted by a close up door Fist character. Its open up Palm counterpart with the same effects can be discovered in one more random location. We might also aid ourselves come the contents of the safe, a handsome 750 silver that nobody will certainly ever notification has gone missing. That course, we"re nice human being so obviously us don"t perform that. No, definitely not. Stealing is wrong, also when it"s a criminal gang"s ill-earned profits and also we"re an RPG protagonist. Ahem. Yes.
*
Now the we"re excellent ransacking exploring the place, we can go speak to Ai Ling. She realizes precisely how dumb that totality thing v Bei was.
*
*
I recognize I was wrong; I recognize it. However it doesn"t make it hurt any less. Ns guess ns just have to accept the truth that I"m never going to discover a husband. You could still uncover a husband. What respectable man would ever before want to marry a girl favor me? also the lummoxes in my gang would just do it because they"re afraid of me.People get married because that worse reasons than that, therefore I"m sure Ai Ling still has actually some hope.
*
I have actually a reputation approximately town, and also having my boys beat increase Bei didn"t assist any. Any half-decent guy would most likely run if they witnessed me coming.
*
Well, we"ve met a few eligible bachelors while exploring the town, so probably we have the right to do something about this. Not that many of the men we met are precisely prizes...
*
but don"t think I"m desperate sufficient to resolve for just anyone. I"ve obtained my standards. And I"d have actually to satisfy him first, the course. Phone call me about the town"s bachelors. Let"s see... There"s Ru the Boatswain, yet he"s nothing but a drunk. Mine boys have had more than a few run-ins v him end the years. He"s absolutely out. Hmmm... Chumin the Craftsman is single. Ns don"t understand him the well, however he seems choose a an excellent man. He has actually a home in the southwest corner of the town. And then there"s Yaoru. He offered to it is in a sailor traveling the Empire, yet now he"s feather to work out down. He might be a an excellent catch. Spends many of his time in the teahouse. Anyone else? not living in town, and Tien"s Landing doesn"t gain a lot of visitors. Yet if you uncover someone looking for a wife, carry him through so ns can examine him out.And that leaves united state with 3 candidates: Chumin, Yaoru, and big Tian. Together she brings up Ru the Boatswain together someone who is most certainly out, you could think you can do miscellaneous to make him a viable choice (this is a BioWare RPG after ~ all, and you have the right to convince human being to carry out all type of things in these games) yet that is no the case. Ru will certainly not come to be an alternative for this pursuit at any point.
*
If you"re play a male character, girlfriend can shot to obtain your
*
on and offer to marry Ai Ling yourself, but she declines since you"re clearly not spring to resolve down anytime soon. I could swear i picked the "you sure acquired over Bei pretty quick" choice at one point, however it wasn"t in the video so i must"ve forgotten to carry out it. Ai Ling basically states that she wasn"t yes, really all that interested in Bei and snapped because she assumed she was shedding her only chance to gain married. She kinda just reiterates what she said once we speak to her at the begin of this update.
*
Well then, time to obtain to work. I will be mirroring off all possible options in a bonus upgrade at some point, but for this "canon" operation we"ll be picking the finest option. The best choice, of course, is the one that your follower has actually a comment on.
*
*
Before we leave, let"s check out one much more bookstand close to the exit. It"s just a bit of lore about horselords, nothing too exciting.
*
Let"s focus-sprint our means to the southwest corner of town and also have a chat with our old buddy Chumin.
*
It"s a dead my company is struggling so much. I really to be a fine craftsman but I could use someone to aid organize points and aid me the end with some of my jobs.Well then, I"m sure he"ll favor this.
*
You room well informed around our small town, stranger. It"s true I"ve thought around marriage. Sometimes I"ve even thought a good woman could assist me operation my service better. Why perform you carry this up? execute you recognize of a suitable young woman that would be willing to marry a simple craftsman favor myself? do you understand Ai Ling? Ai Ling? The corridor leader? She"s beautiful, to it is in sure... However I"ve heard her beauty is only surpassed by she savage brutality! Why would I want to get married her?
*
The Intuition examine here renders the most sense, obviously.
*
ns guess it couldn"t hurt to go talk to her. Come on, let"s go view Ai Ling.The various other persuasion options work just as well, as far as ns know. Chumin doesn"t take much convincing. Let"s see how this point turns out...
*
*
Uh. Off to a good start. Ns think Chumin requirements a little bit of assist here.
*
I mean, Ai Ling is the leader of the huge criminal gang and also kind the a rough-hewn kind in general, so we probably shouldn"t reprimand Chumin for gaining a situation of the nerves in a instance like this.
*
*
*
Again, the only option that makes sense. The first one is clear a lie, and the last one is kinda harsh also though it"s not wrong.
*
*
At this point, that doesn"t issue which that these choices you pick. Together the Intuition dialog spells out, this two just needed who to present them to each other, and also now that we"ve done that the rest takes treatment of itself.
*
*
I"ll leave you 2 alone. Friend lived approximately your part of the bargain and brought me a kind prospect. Therefore I"ll live as much as mine: Here"s the silver i promised you. I"ve never seen so much silver before! I"ve been owed it, however I never controlled to collect.It"s 500 silver. We, the course, newly saw a larger sum than that once we... Put it earlier in the safe and also most definitely didn"t run off with it.
*
*
And through that, the matchmaking search is completed. The boathouse is inaccessible to us from currently on, and I"m suspect the corridor is walking to be disbanded due to the fact that Ai Ling was saying something to that impact earlier.
*
Only one area of Tien"s Landing left to explore, then. That need to be Minister Sheng"s office, Hui did mention it to be "still smoldering".
*
*
Looks come be among the seafarers skulking around, taking an interest to this merchant"s wares.
*
*
Yeah, we recognize where this is going, don"t we?
*
All right, let"s clobber this idiot and get the sword ago and...
*
*
Hold on, here"s Minister Sheng himself. As you have the right to see, the male absolutely exudes organic authority.
*
The thief in reality puts the sword back down. I can"t speak I witnessed that coming.

*
Fantastic. Can"t wait to attend to this guy.
*
That is what we"ll it is in doing following time. Who knows, possibly we"ll get to walk close the dam together well! This to be a pretty brief update, however I simply wanted to obtain that matchmaking search out of the way before we start the important stuff.-----
