You can persuade (55) or intimidate (55) to expedite things and get him to go back, or you can ask him what he wants to do about it. The last option will have him tell you to report that he is dead. You can express your concern about what that will do to Agnes, and then either ask for something that would prove a body, or reject the proposition.

If you persuade him to go back, you’ll get 7500xp and can return to Stellar Bay to see things play out. You’ll find his mother is still condescending to him, and you can help him by saying he’s a grown man. You’ll get 7500xp. If you stick around and talk to them some more you’ll see Tucker is standing up for himself. You’ll receive 625 Bit Cartridge, Monarch Stellar Industries Reputation and 15000xp.

Her office also has a lockbox that contains Signed Tossball Poster, that you need for The Grimm Tomorrow – but you can get this item without stealing it by doing Braxon’s quest for Velma. If you need the key for it you can Pickpocket Velma.

You can lie (1) and she will mention someone else used to bring the candies. Apparently Martha and Edgar got into an argument with Braxton over the deliveries.

Ask her about it and she will reveal the victim is named Isaac, and that Elijah and other grunts were pushing him around. They can be found loitering in the alley behind The Yacht Club. You’ll get 5625xp and your quest will update.

Make your way around and take a narrow alley to find Elijah and his group of thugs. You can accuse him of the murder outright, and he’ll say Isaac had it coming, and you have no proof (You can find proof in a bin at the docks. In the bin is a Broken Tossball Stick with a purple tooth stuck in and Elijah’s name on it). You can Intimidate (55), try to leave, or if you have the Broken Tossball Stick then you can use that top bypass the first Intimidate (55) check. They will attack you if you leave.

Head out into Monarch Wilderness and make your way to the objective building by a large bridge. There’s a Raptidon Behemoth here, and you can loot an Iconoclast corpse for ARMS Building Key and Leaded Armor.

Go inside the ARMS building and you can loot several items including Purpleberry Liqueur, Stogie Slims, Adreno, Spectrum Vodka and Light Ammo by a terminal. Read the report within to learn that Sanjar is bad with jingles and slogans, and instead includes numbers and statistics in his report. In addition, he completes work instead of delegating it – not a desired trait for promotion. You can use Hack (20) to read the files of Graham Bryant, who is apparently “subversive”. Lastly there’s Dora Erickson, who is recommended for the promotion thanks to her delegation skills. It is now obvious why Sanjar wants you to delete the terminal contents – do it or not it’s your call! (5625xp for deleting)
