Speak with Pela in the museum

πŸ“ Jarilo-VI History and Culture Museum

You finished one phase of the museum's operations.
You seem to see Pela again in the exhibit hall. Perhaps there are some results from Norbert's interrogation? Go speak with her.
Pela
Pela
{NICKNAME}, nice to see you. You're looking in good spirits.
Pela
Pela
The museum is packed these days β€” I've never seen it so full of visitors. You run a tight ship here.
Pela
Pela
Still, it'd be nice if those kids would stop littering... It's barely lunchtime and I've already picked up three half-eaten packs of snow-white popping candy.
Options
Is there something you wanted to talk about, Pela?
Kids these days...
Pela
Pela
Ah, don't worry, nothing was stolen this time.
Pela
Pela
You remember that Norbert guy we captured? The Silvermane Guards have acquired new intel from him β€” I thought you might find it interesting.
Pela
Pela
I know, right? I'll teach them a lesson myself if I catch them in the act, that's for sure.
Pela
Pela
By the way, you remember that Norbert guy we captured? The Silvermane Guards have acquired new intel from him β€” I thought you might find it interesting.
Pela
Pela
I always wondered β€” how did he, a rich kid with virtually no real life experience, suddenly think of becoming a smuggler?
Pela
Pela
There's no way someone like him could've come up with the idea of disassembling a sculpture and hiding the pieces inside robots.
Pela
Pela
The result is just as I expected... After less than half a day of interrogation, he confessed everything.
Pela
Pela
He admitted that a mysterious figure named Mr. Cold Feet persuaded him to target the museum exhibits.
Pela
Pela
Mr. Cold Feet fooled Norbert into believing that many of the museum's artifacts were forcibly seized from private collectors by the Silvermane Guards. He told him that true justice would be returning the artifacts to the people...
Pela
Pela
Norbert probably didn't believe any of that nonsense β€” I think he just wanted to prove himself and add more to his fortune.
Pela
Pela
Mr. Cold Feet not only introduced him to buyers, but also gave him advice, and only charged him a 30% consultant's fee... In the opinion of our young Mr. Norbert, the deal was too good to refuse.
Options
Did you find this Mr. Cold Feet?
Sounds lucrative. Why didn't he recruit me...
Pela
Pela
...Ahem. That's what I wanted to discuss with you, {NICKNAME}.
Pela
Pela
...Ahem. I'll pretend I didn't hear that.
Pela
Pela
So, {NICKNAME}, I came to discuss with you about this Mr. Cold Feet.
Pela
Pela
Norbert said Mr. Cold feet operates with extreme discretion, and knows the Silvermane Guards' every move like the back of his hand. If he catches wind about the slightest rumor in the city, he'll disappear without a trace.
Pela
Pela
If what Mr. Norbert said is true, then our safest option is to send a civilian to try to reach out to Mr. Cold Feet and lure him out of his lair.
Options
You want me to go and meet him?
Pela
Pela
You guessed it! Everyone agrees that there is no better candidate than you.
Pela
Pela
Norbert said he usually communicates with Mr. Cold Feet through the door of a room in the Goethe Hotel. The usual agreed meeting time is... right now.
Pela
Pela
{NICKNAME}, take this as a final request from the Silvermane Guards β€” can you go to the Goethe Hotel to meet with this Mr. Cold Feet?

Head to the Hotel Corridor of the Goethe Hotel

πŸ“ Jarilo-VI Hotel Corridor

The truth is that Norbert was spurred on by a mysterious person with the code name "Mr. Cold Feet." The true mastermind behind the artifact thefts is still free.
Pela had already pried out of Norbert his rendezvous point with Mr. Cold Feet, which is none other than the Goethe Hotel.
Head to the Goethe Hotel and expose the hidden mastermind.

Confront Mr. Cold Feet through the door

The truth is Norbert was spurred on by a mysterious person with the code name "Mr. Cold Feet." The true mastermind behind the artifact thefts is still free.
You found the room where Mr. Cold Feet is hiding, and only a door stands between you and them.
Remember the secret signal Pela told you and get ready to knock on the door.
Knock the door

The door remains unperturbed, and you feel a chill breeze brush past your knees... If you stayed any longer in this freezing hallway, you would soon turn into a {F#Miss Cold Feet}{M#Mr. Cold Feet} yourself.

Tap four times and knock once.
Tap twice and knock three times.

Mr. Cold Feet
Hm? Norbert, is that you?
Options
(In a low voice) Yes, it's me.
No, it's a Silvermane Guard.
Mr. Cold Feet
Mr. Cold Feet
*sigh* What took you so long?
Mr. Cold Feet
Mr. Cold Feet
Haha... Someone write that for you?
Mr. Cold Feet
Mr. Cold Feet
*sigh* Anyway, what took you so long?
Mr. Cold Feet
Mr. Cold Feet
I was worried the Silvermane Guards might've got to you. But you're not the type to turn someone in at first capture, right?
Mr. Cold Feet
Mr. Cold Feet
Well, it's time for me to get on out of here. After all, we already made a nice little fortune on this trip.
Options
How could I ever betray such a dear friend?
Come hell or high water, we shall forge the bonds of brotherlyβ€”
Mr. Cold Feet
Mr. Cold Feet
Uh-oh, someone's getting a little emotionally overinvested...
Mr. Cold Feet
Mr. Cold Feet
You know what we are? Accomplices. You know what that means? Partners in crime! You know what else that means? We are not friends!
Mr. Cold Feet
Mr. Cold Feet
Whoa, whoa, whoa β€” Did you stop at a bar on the way over here? You know what we are? Accomplices. You know what that means? Partners in crime! You know what else that means? We're not friends!
Mr. Cold Feet
Mr. Cold Feet
Alright, enough chinwagging. So, how much did the microfilm sell for?
{NICKNAME}
{NICKNAME}
(Uh-oh. I'm just gonna have to make up an amount. Hope it's believable...)
Options
5000 credits...
50,000 credits.
500,000 credits!
Mr. Cold Feet
Mr. Cold Feet
Huh? 5000? You're kidding, right?
Mr. Cold Feet
Mr. Cold Feet
How could it... Ugh, what kind of hotel is this, anyway? No peepholes on the doors?
Mr. Cold Feet
Mr. Cold Feet
50,000? Well... it's a little less than I thought, but not too bad.
Mr. Cold Feet
Mr. Cold Feet
By the way, you catch a cold or something? Your voice... sounds a little different than before.
Mr. Cold Feet
Mr. Cold Feet
Or maybe you... Ugh, what kind of hotel is this, anyway? No peepholes on the doors?
Mr. Cold Feet
Mr. Cold Feet
What? 500,000!? No offense kid, but I can't see you haggling that kinda number...

Mr. Cold Feet
That Gears and Wisdom sculpture I told you to take apart and hide away... Can you remind me how many pieces it had?
Options
Uhh... a little less than 60.
Uhh... about 40?
Uhh... around 20.

Now that's more like it! You had me in a cold sweat with those jokes...
