The Smiling Guildmistress' eyes shine when she hears the sum involved. But the job is not small, and the customer wants the glass immediately. More importantly, this commission could generate more. Fads drive the high families of Val Royeaux like a sheepdog drives a flock.
When the glassworkers learn about the work, they grumble. "Can't be done," some insist. "Not without working us to the bone. Not that that'll stop you."
Limit the glassworkers' freedoms It's the only way to complete the job on time.
Success: -10 Freedom, +1 Bag of Royals
Failure: -10 Freedom, +1 Bag of Royals, +10 Rumors of Revolution
Turn down the commission The glassworkers are already worked to the bone.
+10 Freedom, -10 Prosperity, +1 Authority
Deliver a lesser work There will be other commissions. Perhaps you can keep the client on the hook; reel her in another time.
