Rahim App/RO Guide S2

"You don’t know what you are, and you have a malevolent spirit inside of you. In simple terms, I don’t trust you. Prove me wrong." - Rahim to Roe
  Approval starts with a value of 30.   Rahim is Sydero’s professional and more level-headed twin brother. Some might say he’s got a stick up his ass, others will melt away under his blue eyes and heavenly hugs, as well as appreciating his professionalism. Or start to detest said professionalism when he decides to distance himself again.  

Episode Two: What Goes Bump in the Night

When you first meet him, you can ask him a couple of questions. Most of these options don’t change a thing, but one is a flirt option.
<3 [["Are you single?"]] +1 RR

After some more talking:
[["Does family mean nothing to you?"]] -5
[["Have you heard anything about a prophecy?"]] +2
[["You don’t know her like we do."]] -3

Rahim asks about Zillah.
[["I didn’t even know it was possible."]] +-0
[["I don’t care, do you know how to separate us, though?"]] +3 R, -3 Z
[["No, but I’d rather you not."]] -3 R, +3 Z

Rahim gives you a hunt.
[["You don’t care about us succeeding?"]] +-0
[["Is this a team grade?"]] +-0
[["Whatever will make this go by faster."]] -3

Follow up.
[[Roll my eyes.]] -3
[["Can you let us breathe?"]] -5
[["Rahim’s right."]] +3

Rahim wants to judge you. Depending on whether you manage to impress him or not, you will yield +2 or -2 at the end of the hunt. You will need to do at least four of the following:
  1. Your first action in town should be to [[Do some research.]]
  2. When you meet up with the locals, choose either of the options that indicate you have a [[brother]] in town.
  3. When meeting up with the sheriff: [[I’ll take the lead.]]
  4. When you have to tell the sheriff from which newspaper you are: [[Virginia Daily]]. You lose one “Rahim impressed” point if you enter the wrong answer.
  5. Question Rahim whether he would [[send us on a non-supernatural hunt]]
  6. When your group doesn’t know how to continue, [[You can do it.]]
  7. If you go with Rahim to the bar [[You’re right, let’s focus.]] (<3 insisting on the drinking game however lets you get up to +2 RR points)

You will accompany Rahim to a bar for reconnaissance later. If you have Chris in your group, you can instead choose to gather information on a college party with Chris. For more romance points with Rahim, choose to go with him to the bar.
In the bar, convince Rahim to play a drinking game with you. You can get +1 or +2 RR out of this. To do this, ask him the following questions:
  1. First Round: [[“…been in a threesome.”]]
  2. Second Round: [[“Never have I ever faked an orgasm.”]]
  3. <3 Third Round: [[“…fallen in love at first sight.”]]
DO NOT choose the “I love you” option, that ends this without getting a single RR point.
You will get +2 RR if you choose both the threesome and orgasm question. You get +1 RR if you choose only one. If you chose neither, then you get no points when choosing the “fallen in love” option.

There’s a wonderful plan how to summon your hunt’s target.
(if Chris):
[["This plan is sound."]] -2 C, +2 R
[["I agree with Chris."]] +3 C, -3 B
[["If only you could be bait, Chris."]] -3 C

(if Chris) [[To feel Chris’s hand on my forehead.]] +5 C
[[To see Rahim glancing down at me.]] +5 R
[[To hear Zillah shout from his seat.]] +5 Z

You are sitting together to discuss the next step of action when Amarante bursts in and asks for help in some Fae business. Do you want to help?
[["No, Sydero is our focus."]] +1 proSyd, -5 R
[["How about we put that on the backburner."]] +1 proSyd, -3 R, +3 C
[["Yea, of course."]] -1 proSyd, +3 R, +3 C, +2 A
[["How important is this guy?"]] -1 proSyd, +5 R, -3 C, +5 A

[["Why bring Zillah?"]] +3 R, +3 C, -3 A
[["What do you want us to look for?"]] +3 R, +3 B
(if Chris) [["Oh, but Chris can go?"]] -5 C

If the group does not know you are unstable, you will accompany Rahim, Amarante, Amari (and Chris) to help out with the missing Fae druid. You meet up with Amarante's contract, a half-fae named Tristen, and discuss how you are tackling the issue.
[["Agreed, you guys know them better than us."]] +5 R, -3 C, +3 A
[["Fine, fine."]] +3 R, +3 A
[["That’s it, we just don’t investigate the faeries?"]] -3 R, +3 C, -3 A
[["Well, that’s a stupid decision."]] -5 R, -5 A

Now there is another slight diverging path. You will either stay watch outside with Amarante, or accompany the others inside. If you have at least 15 points in perception, or your college major was either Communications, Criminal Justice, or Psychology, you will go inside. Otherwise, you stay with Amarante.

If you go inside with the others, you can choose this:
[["Everyone calm down and take a seat."]] +3 R, -3 C
[["I put my money on the druid."]] -3 R, +3 C
[[Let someone else handle it.]] +-0

Rahim will be unamused after you have an hallucination and act out.
[[Berate him.]] -3
[[Apologize to him.]] +2
[[Make a joke.]] -5
[[Say nothing.]] +- 0

If you stayed outside with Amarante, Rahim will be pissed when you injure Amarante in your hallucination. He asks what you did.
[["How did you get out here so fast?"]] -10
[["It means I don’t know."]] -5
[["Give me a minute!"]] -5

Upon arriving back at Faye's house, Zillah and Bradley tell you how their trip went: Bradley killed either Langston or Petri.
[["If not him, then me."]] +3 B, +3 C, +3 Z, -3 R, -3 A
[["Whoa, no way, high five!"]] +3 B, +3 Z, -3 R
[["He did what!?"]] +3 A, +3 R, -3 B, -3 C, -3 Z
[["How are you feeling?"]] +3 B, +3 A

Episode Eight: Journey To Hell Part One

Raum is his charming self and starts to threaten Bradley.

[[Shift to stand in front of Bradley.]] +2 R, +2 C, +2 A
[[Verbally assault him.]] +3 C, +2 B, -3 R, -2 Z

For most people, Rahim will serve as the main distraction to get away from Raum. A variation of this scene is when Petri is still alive (cause Langston was sacrificed by Raum and you did not kill him in the forest). Then Petri will come by and attack Raum.
(at least Rahim 50) [[Hug him. "Be careful."]] +3 R
(interested in men/both) [["I don’t like this idea."]] +5 R, (-5 C, - 3 Z if you flirted with them enough to get them jealous)

[[Help him.]] +5 A, -5 B, -3 Z, -3 R, -2 C
[[Go, now.]] -5 A, +3 B, +3 Z, +2 C

Before you enter the Gate to Hell, Bradley asks you again to bring Sydero back.
