Tier 1

Eavesdropping on Saïd and Tanis behind Cafe Giza

Said: Did you suppose "he's eternal, what's another ten minutes," hmm?
Said: This is why I swore off Aegean girls.
Said: Out with it, then.
Tanis: We want you to fulfil the terms of your agreement.
Tanis: You do not get to skip out on a contract signed in blood.
Said: For a moment there, I thought a Phoenician arms dealer was trying to lecture me on principles.
Said: We had a deal on the table, then you cut another deal with a death cult. We want no part in that.
Said: Besides, Venice has called in the bees.
Tanis: The mighty and ancient Kingdom, afraid of a little sting?
Said: I'm not taking on any new enemies at the moment.
Tanis: You're making one right now.
Said: You have made a simple arrangement infinitely more complicated. My advice?
Said: Get that ass of yours insured. It would be your gift to the world.
Said: (As Tanis pulls a gun on Said) Oh please, we're above this. Well, one of us is.
Said: Mmmm... Gun oil, desperation and cheap perfume.
Said: Tanis, Tanis, Tanis.
Tanis: (Putting the gun away) So what do you want... Money? Blood sacrifices? The Spear of Destiny?
Tanis: We have the wealth of Carthage, there must be something you want.
Said: Goodness, let's not debase ourselves any more than we absolutely must.
Said: Not wealth. Honour. Carthage has long sold out of that stock.
Said: You've made your sarcophagus, now go lie in it.
Said: I shouldn't think we'll meet again.
Tanis: Fucking mummies.
Berihun: (Approaching after Said leaves) I told you they would all desert you.
Berihun: They lack the conviction, and they will burn for it.
Berihun: Come. Let us discuss our...
Berihun: bright and shining future.

Ah, there you are! Hope you don't mind my tracking down your personals.

Listen, i believe in practicing sustainable business with competent partners. After all, we tend to take a very long view of things in the Kingdom. indeed, we have made some conspicuous slips of late. Terribly conspicuous. Death cult conspicuous.

I suppose we really should try to make up for it, but let's not forget that we all make mistakes. Believe me, your kind have made mistakes.

So, let's not get hung up on who shipped what for whom. Life goes on, I should think...

My people will call your people. We'll do lunch!

    • For the first camera - wait until it swings away from you then run and hide in the corner under it.
    • The next time it swings away - jump over the laser and then run up the middle aisle and pause partway down the isle before getting to the far wall
    • When the second camera swings away, finish running up the middle aisle and then to the right and hide in the corner under this camera
    • When the second camera swings away from the doorway, exit the room.
    • In the next room - wind your way through the lasers. You may have to jump on/over some pallets to get past the first part.
