Arcanum: Of Steamworks and Magick Obscura Wiki

"Word has reached me that the Bowen gang is coming in to rob the bank. Too bad for them that my money happens to be in there too. I could use someone to watch my back, and there ain't no one worth their salt in this town. I happen to have come into the possession of a magickal sword a while back. Some fool tried to threaten me with it and I was forced to show him the error of his ways, if you know what I mean. If you were to back me up when the trouble starts, I'd give it to you afterwards.”
