Minnesota Incorporeals

You enter the Billiards Room, cue in hand, and see something strange. Standing next to the pool table is a ghostly figure, but unlike the ghostly figures you're accustomed to seeing in here, it doesn't seem to be trying to kill you.

It gestures at the table with a ghostly hand. It seems to want to play a game of pool with you. As you watch, a set of balls flies onto the table from a nearby shelf and neatly racks itself.

Shall we play a game?


Break

You break like you've never broken before (but not like a little girl.) The balls crack apart with an earth-shattering sound, and spread around the table like a swarm of angry bees.

In a stroke of incredible luck, the 8-ball sinks into a corner pocket. You won the game in one shot, and it gives you a much-needed opportunity to strut your stuff.

You gain <mainstat>±4 in Cheek, capped at 50 Chutzpah.

Run Away

You slowly back away from the table, out into the hallway, out the front door, and back out the Right Side of the Tracks. Then you turn around and start walking normally again.
