The Baker's Dilemma
"Pardon me!" shouts a man that approaches you as you near the Pantry. "Could I trouble you for a spot of assistance?"
"Well, you see, I've baked this birthday cake for my friend Claude, but I thought I'd play a bit of a trick on the old chap, so I used these hilarious novelty candles that are very difficult to blow out.
It says on the package that they can't be lit by normal matches. Apparently some sort of magical fire is required. Do you suppose you could be so kind as to find some for me, and get these candles burning?"
He looks at you expectantly.
|"I'll see what I can do."|
"I'll see what I can do," you say, and the baker hands you the cake.
"Bring it back to me here when you've figured out how to light it," he says.
|You acquire an item: unlit birthday cake|
|"Sorry, I'm busy right now."|
"Sorry, I'm busy right now," you say, and wander off before he can reply. Way to shirk!
|"Hey, what's that over there?"|
"Hey, what's that over there?" you say, pointing over the baker's shoulder. He turns to look.
"I don't see anyth..." he begins as he turns around, but by that time you're gone, and so are the contents of his wallet.
|You gain 4-5 Cheek.|
|You gain 15-20 Meat.|
