The Helpful Urchin buttonholes you on the street. 'Told yer I'd find yer. Orlright, this way.' He sets off in the direction of the Shuttered Palace. 'Ave yer got the fancy mushroom? I tole yer, they won't take nuffink else.'

'Gimme, then.'

Do you want to see the Exceptional Rose? Even if it means losing your Gift of Adoration? Consider the giver. Consider the Rose.
A matter of luck: pretty good odds.

Change your mind

Actually, this whole thing is a bit unpleasant. Tell the urchin to go away and find another dupe.
