 This scenario is condition-focused,​ trying to stall the PCs to keep them from raising the Counter before the end of the scenario. If you want a bit more of a standard style, you can swap in Opponents like the [[analects_book_4_part_3_chapter_1#​bully|Bully]] and the [[analects_book_4_part_3_chapter_1#​contrarian|Contrarian]]. This scenario is condition-focused,​ trying to stall the PCs to keep them from raising the Counter before the end of the scenario.

-If the PCs are already known here (and have a positive reputation),​ you could improve the starting Debate Counter position as a reward. However, that could make the scenario so easy it's almost impossible to fail, in which case a better option might be to simply give the PCs the information,​ rewarding them for prior successes. If the PCs have a bad reputation or the patrons are especially unfriendly, you might cut the Round Limit by 1 or 2, making it particularly difficult (but not impossible) for the players to get the information they want.+If the PCs are already known here (and have a positive reputation),​ you could improve the starting Debate Counter position ​and/or boost the Round Limit as a reward.

 The Opponents represent the patrons with the potential for useful information,​ or at least those who will engage with the PCs; it's assumed that other patrons exist in the background. If you prefer to have all patrons represented but not be stuck with a largely empty tavern, swap the Traveling Musician for four mooks of your choice. You could similarly swap the Raconteur for a pair of level 2 mooks to add to the crowd. The Opponents represent the patrons with the potential for useful information,​ or at least those who will engage with the PCs; it's assumed that other patrons exist in the background.
