[Start of level]

[Approach Thief]

Panicking Tradesman: Help! I'm being robbed!

Raine: Did I imagine that? Was there a gust just now? That little green runt took everything...

Panicking Tradesman: Gold necklaces, chunky gold watches, gold rings, and gold coins! The lot!

Fawkes: (Squatting down to investigate) Clean execution, not a single coin left.

Panicking Tradesman: In broad daylight! On a commercial road with people coming and going! The absolute audacity of this thief! Miss Raine, Mr. Fawkes, everyone said that you two find solutions to impossible problems, so surely you can help.

Fawkes: (Raises eyebrows) Oh?

Panicking Tradesman: Please, you're my last hope, you have to help me!

Raine: As long as we're paid, whatever.

Panicking Tradesman: Every trader on this route has been shafted! Especially me! I slaved away and saved every single coin of gold myself, and he stole them all! I have a seriously ill brother, he's been bedridden for years, the fees to treat him are huge and I was saving to pay for it, but that little green bandit swiped it all! Please, Sir and Ma'am, the livelihood of a large family depends on me, you'll be remunerated...

Fawkes: ......

Raine: No discounts.

[Lay fake treasure chest trap]

Fawkes: I've laid a few traps along this trade route. They'll create an illusion of gold to lure the thief in.

Raine: When he's drawn in, land a good blow to his head. Such a petty thief won't long forget such a beating, it's the simplest resolution.

Small-time Merchant: Yeah, beat him black and blue! Twice, if you have to!

Game Log: The sneaky thief is extremely crafty and will choose the optimal path (based on the lease number of tiles) to reach the gold.

[Fire cannon into Thief]

Raine: Lovely! Everything should be this easy! Slippery fella, runs faster than a feral hare.

Small-time Merchant: Ah! Gold! He panicked and dropped quite a lot!

[Lure Thief into bottom right corner of map]

Raine: Alright you little green punk, (loads gun) why don't you run? Keep on running.

Rowan: Now be a good little sport and return what you took from me. If even on penny is missing, Miss Raine here will put so many bullets in you, you'll make a fine sieve!

Raine: Wait, what is this little green thief gibbering about? Got something to say?

Fawkes: He said, his brother is seriously ill and bedridden, awaiting for money to cover treatment fees. He's hoping we'll spare him.

Raine: ...Is it just me, or... does this all sound a bit familiar?

Rowan: Ahem.

Fawkes: Move it, Raine. Don't forget, we have to meet our next client at The Noble Tavern later. It's the elder brother of the renowned Young Master Rowan.

Raine: Huh? Brother? But isn't his brother bedridden?

Fawkes: Haha, I'll go ahead!

Small-time Merchant: Good grief, this is way more profitable than business! If my family permits it, I want to become a bounty hunter, too!

Raine: Talking nonsense, kid. Fawkes, call it a day. Kid, stay here and clean up.

Small-time Merchant: Got it!
