  • Almuj Bank Guard: Us guards have been trying to root out desert bandits trying to rob the bank.
  • Almuj Bank Guard: We're using reports from witnesses to try to gain information.
  • Almuj Bank Guard: If I give you some of the witness reports, will you help get clues from them?
  • Almuj Bank Guard: Great! The store from the first witness report is straight down the stairs, just past this here building, just behind me.

You read the report and visualize its words
  • Business was slow that day, until two rugged, oddly-dressed men stormed into my shop, with a lot of nerve.
  • Shopkeeper Gibbs: Hello gentlemen! What can I interest you in today? Some industrial torches? Pickaxes?
  • Before I could close any deal with them, the man with a dagger started threatening me!
  • Bandit: Shut yer’ trap, old man. We came for a different kind of business.
  • I tried to make peace with the crooks.
  • Shopkeeper Gibbs: Wha-? Look, fellows. Just step out of my store, and nobody gets hurt. I don’t want any trouble.
  • The bandit put the knife closer to me and started demanding the code to the TNT vault downstairs!
  • Bandit: Listen up old man, tell us the code to the TNT vault in the basement, or I decorate my necklace with your fingers!
  • Shopkeeper Gibbs: Certainly not! That TNT is for licensed mining companies only, not your average amateur miner.
  • The bandits grew agitated and resorted to violence to obtain the combination.
  • Bandit: Well then! I guess you’ll still be able to grasp a pick with four fingers, eh?
  • They swiped their knife at me, leaving a sizeable wound on my arm.
  • Shopkeeper Gibbs: Gaaah! Alright, alright! No more violence, please!
  • I had no choice but to give up the combination, which was 7812.
  • Shopkeeper Gibbs: The code is 7-8-1-2... please don’t hurt me!
  • After I gave up the combination, they knocked me out!
  • Bandit: 7-8-1-2... thanks! We won’t be needing you anymore... now go to sleep!
