11. [He softens towards you.] Hmmm...I have never seen you before...what do want with me?
12. I want you to pay for your lack of respect, fool!

14. Nothing. Good bye.
15. Oh, it's you...again.
15. Oh, it's you...again.
16. Time to pay for your lack of respect, worm!
17. I have a thing or two to speak with you about.

32. Anything else?
32. Anything else?
35. It looks like you are down on your luck "Friend".
36. R:($0, 1070-1075)
38. You can call me "friend" for now. I don't like answering too many questions, it can be hazardous to one's health.

39. It looks as if you are down on your luck, "friend".
43. I have had it better, that is for certain. What is your name, sir?
43. I have had it better, that is for certain. What is your name, sir?
44. My name is @pcname@.
45. My name is @pcname@.
46. My name is not important.
47. [He looks you over.] Let me give you some advice, @pcname@. In our line of work, it isn't exactly wise to be telling strangers too much about yourself. [He notices your unease.] But rest easy laddie, you are in no danger with Phineas McGee! [He laughs.] Do you happen to know a friend of mine named Pollock in Tarant?

48. No, I don't believe I have had the pleasure.
49. Yes, I have heard of him.
50. Hah! That dog is six feet under!
51. You might say that he and I have had...dealings.
52. Yes, I know that scurvy, doublecrossing worm!
54. [He seems a bit nervous, suddenly.] Well, uh, I always say any friend of Pollock is a friend of mine. Errr... how can I help you?

55. R:($0, 1070-1075)
56. I said I know of Pollock... he is NOT my friend.
60. Hmm... I don't think we've met. Do you know a friend of mine named Pollock?

67. Well...how can I help you?
68. What happened to your luck, "friend"?
69. I have no fondness for him, either!
69. I have no fondness for him, either!
70. What do you have against Pollock?
71. What can you tell me about Ashbury?
72. Well that's a long story, but it was Pollock that ended my professional career. Curse him!, curse the day he was born!
72. Well that's a long story, but it was Pollock that ended my professional career. Curse him!, curse the day he was born!
73. I see, could you tell me a little more about it?
74. Tough luck, friend. I have a few questions, though...
76. It was partly my fault, I admit it. I was new to Tarant and I didn't know anything, especially about the gangs in the Boil. So there I was, in a tavern called Caleb Malloy's, practicing my profession on the locals and I see a big dumb looking Half-Ogre whose purse is bursting at its seams, just begging for me to take it.

77. It would have been hard to resist such an opportunity.
78. I would have advised caution under those circumstances.
80. Well the Half-Ogre wasn't as dumb as he looked. When I went to cut his purse, he got wise to it real quick and before I knew what hit me he was holding me upside down by my ankle and screaming about teaching me a lesson, about teaching everyone a lesson to never cross Pollock!

81. Oh my word. How terrible!
82. Let me guess...this story does not end well for you.
85. I didn't know what he was going to do, but I started begging for mercy! You know, begging for my life! And Pollock got this crazy Half-Ogre smile, and he says to me, "You ain't never going to steal nothing again!"

86. What did he mean by that?
87. [You see his deformed hands.] I understand.
90. [He holds up his hands.] This is what he meant! He grabbed my hands and started squeezing with all of his Half-Ogre strength. Laughing, he was! I can still see his ugly face smiling as he crushed my hands...damn that dog! Look...he, he broke every bone!

91. Is there anything I can do to help?
92. Tough lesson, my friend.
95. It ain't so bad...I still make out okay. I just have to be more careful about my projects, and I try to keep to myself, as well. I don't want anymore trouble with the Pollock gang. Heh Heh! Ashbury is sort of like retirement compared to the Boil.

96. What kind of projects are you speaking of?
97. What would it be worth to you to see Pollock dead?
98. I have news for you, Pollock is deceased.
99. Yes, this is a much nicer place.
102. Well, for instance, I only take low risk jobs. Like working the crowds in Tarant, or like these pitiful town meetings here in Ashbury. Folks are distracted and not watching their pockets. Heh! Even with these hands I can still filch a purse or two. Just don't get too greedy, and be sure to be out of there before the meeting ends!

103. Very interesting.
106. You see, when folks got their attention fixed somewhere else it is easy pickings, my friend! One simply needs to be quick about it, and not stay around to see what happens.

107. Thanks for the lesson, Phineas.
108. What can you tell me about the next meeting?
110. Hey, well I don't want any more trouble with Pollock, or his gang for that matter! But I could say that if you were to tell me he was dead, I would appreciate hearing the news.

111. I don't blame you. That gang is trouble.
112. Well I have good news, sir. Pollock is, in fact, dead.
114. Pollock, dead! That's the best news I have heard in a long time. Hee Hee Hee. I can only hope that it was slow an painful!

115. Sometimes people get what they deserve.
116. His death was unavoidable. It was a pity.
117. Well, what would you like to know?
117. Well, what would you like to know?
118. What about the project you were talking about?
119. What would it be worth to you to see Pollock dead?
120. I have news for you, Pollock is deceased.
121. R:($0, 1070-1075)
124. Next meeting? What do I look like? The Mayor's secretary? Heh Heh Heh. They have those silly meetings all the time. Just ask the Mayor, he will tell you.

128. What? I am confused. I thought he was your friend.
130. Pollock and I crossed paths a long time ago. Sometimes I think he is still after me, so I am careful about strangers. If folks say they know him I try to figure out whose side they are on before committing myself. Pollock and I have nothing but bad blood between us.

133. Anything else?

134. R:($0, 1070-1075)
136. [He is nervously shaking with fear.] Uh, hello, again....errr...what can I do for you?

139. [looking relieved] Good bye.

140. [His body is still shaking with fear] That is all I know...honest...please don't hurt me!
