Pleasant enough

[…] A harsh glance here and a swift grab-and-hurl there and the evening passes smoothly. Your charge seems a decent sort, and even buys you a beer when you have to wait. A fair handful of jade for a not unpleasant evening.

Player summary:
You're able to defend your charge. She pays you.
