The Long Tomorrow Quest Guide
Speak with Martin Abernathy in Edgewater to receive this Quest. As soon as you exit his residence, you will be confronted by Esther Blaine who will ask you to sell her the medicine instead, citing that Abernathy is a known hypochondriac. If you pass a persuade (10) check, Esther will say that she wants the medicine to treat the sick people in town, who cannot be treated due to lack of medicine and red tape.
You can find the Experimental Anhtrocillin in the Emerald Vale Community Center inside the medical area. You’ll need the Medical Bay key to get in there, which can be found on one of the Marauders. Once you obtain it you can give it to Esther or Martin.
Give Medicine to Martin
If you give it to Martin you and pass a Medicine (5) check, he will tell you he doesn’t know what a hypochondriac is. Give him the Anhtrocillin and you’ll gain 3500 XP, Spacer’s Choice Reputation and 500 Bit Cartridges. You can then Persuade (5) or Intimidate (5) him to give you an additional 300 Bit Cartridges.
Give Medicine to Esther
If you give it to Esther, you will receive 7000XP, Spacer’s Choice Reputation up, 700 Bit Cartridge. You can intimidate to get some more bits or charm to get another 300 Bit Cartridge. Esther will also tell you who she’s giving the medicine to: Silas, Amelia Kim from the canteen, and “anybody in the Sickroom”. You can go talk to Rosemary Kwan there, and persuade her to take the medicine from Esther.
Give Medicine to Constable Reyes
Alternatively, if you give it to Constable Reyes, you will receive 2250xp, The Board Reputation increase, and 500 Bit Cartridge. However, she will not distribute the medicine amongst Edgewater citizens for she will confiscate it and claim that it is illegal contraband.
