Trade with the drug dealer at the office building.

The boss said this dealer had something special. I can't mess this one up.

Molotov cocktail

I'll take this just in case things get out of hand.

Do I have any trouble getting to the office building?

(50/50 | 6[d10]) Yes, but...

The start peppering the car with bullets. I try to duck to keep from getting hit.

(50/50 | 7[d10]) Yes

I throw my molotov cocktail at them.

(50/50 | 1[d10]) No, and...

It starts a fire on the front of my car.

(50/50 | 4[d10]) No

They still haven't hit me with a bullet yet. Can I run them over.

I plow on through severely injuring at least two of them.

Dang 76 streeters. This must be a special delivery.

Can my car go on?

The old man got a call from the boss.

Come in, soon time it will be.

Extravagant gang member

A man decked out to the nines comes from a back room with a briefcase. "You got my money?"

Did I remember to get the money from the car?

(50/50 | 8[d10]) Yes

Here you go 400,000 just like you asked.

"Is the special gift in there?"

"Everything's here, I wouldn't double cross the boss."

Can I tell if he's lying?

(50/50 | 8[d10]) Yes

"Open it."

"Excuse me?"

"I said open it..."

Does he open it?
