How is the option to kill the unscrupulous merchant reached in dialogue? Grail Quest 15:30, December 7, 2011 (UTC)

I don't know, I have tried all of the options. I think I may have installed a mod that perhaps eliminated one of the options, or made one of the options that would have let me kill him function differently.--LightAcolyte (talk) 21:35, January 12, 2012 (UTC)

So I believe the key is that you must first fail to Intimidate the Unscrupulous Merchant. Then, when he becomes obstinate, you have the option to kill him. However, killing him does not permit you to steal from him in combat as it is executed (no pun intended) as a cut scene.-- (talk) 00:25, January 20, 2012 (UTC)

First I asked the sister if she could pay me, then I sided with the merchant. When the others leave and the merchant offers you your reward, there's an option were you can kill him. -- (talk) 23:21, January 20, 2012 (UTC)

Editing Questions Edit

  • "This quest is not documented in your journal." Can it be documented as an Encounter rather than a Quest? This does seem of at least vague significance; it's an interesting limbo between "required quest line" and "side quest", since it is "forced" merely by proximity to the NPCs and has the hallmarks of an actual quest (particularly XP gain) without actually being one...--Yeti magi (talk) 01:48, January 17, 2012 (UTC)
  • "If you do not want to offend companions..." Does this really belong anywhere other than the general article(s) for Approval and/or Companions? It seems like the exceptions, wherein approval will change even for companions who aren't present, are the only instances that need particular emphasis - a cluttery standard it would be indeed to have this "tip" on every page that mentioned approval-changing action or dialogue.--Yeti magi (talk) 01:48, January 17, 2012 (UTC)
I'd say it's still an unmarked quest. If we use "encounter" instead, it would be wrongly categorized with other random/scripted encounters when you travel.
I also think the other note can be removed due to what you said. --D. (talk · contr) 21:20, January 21, 2012 (UTC)
