The Grand Minotour was a virtual representation of one of Kassandra's genetic memories, relived by Layla Hassan through the Portable Animus HR-8.5.

Description

Kassandra accepted a tour offered by a boy on the Minotaur.

Dialogue

In Lato Harbor, Kassandra met a young boy.

  • Arsenios: Minotaur tours! Get your Minotaur tours here! Learn how to defeat the mighty Minotaur! Slay the beast with this one weird trick all minotaurs hate! Book your tour now to avoid the disappointment up at your own headless body while the Minotaur laughts at you—even he thinks the tour's great value for drachmae! Take the Minotaur tour to avoid bringing shame and dishonor to your parents. "Wife, I heard our child went off to slay the Minotaur Have they returned victoriously yet? No Husband, they didn't take a handsome young man's very reasonably priced tour and were tragically killed. We're laughing stocks at the agora. We never should've had kids." Is this what you want your parents to say, hero? Is it? No?! Then sign up now for my Minotaur Tour now!

Kassandra approached the boy.

  • Arsenios: Warrior! Welcome to Pephka. Home of the Minotaur, and our world-famous Minotaur tunics! Tunics! Minotaur tunics! One size fits all!
  • Kassandra: I don't see how one size can fit everyone.
  • Arsenios: My name's Arsenios. If you want to know how to defeat the Minotaur, and become the Greek world's famous warrior, then this is the tour for you!

(If players had already defeat the Minotaur in He Waits)

  • Kassandra: Don't need the tour. Already killed the beast.
  • Arsenios: You think—

Arsenios laughed.

  • Arsenios: You killed—

The boy continued laughing for a moment.

  • Arsenios: The Minotaur?!
  • Kassandra: It was an epic battle. Lots of blood.
  • Arsenios: An epic battle with a man in a mask! You were scammed, warrior. But have no fear, you're in Pephka now—a land famous for its honesty and total lack of scams.

(Accept – I'll take your tour.)

  • Kassandra: You sell it well, kid. Let's go on your tour. You're not worried someone's going to steal your "world famous Minotaur tunics"?
  • Arsenios: Who would? They're tunics for Minotaurs.

Kassandra followed Arsenios as he brought her around Pephka. She followed him to a statue depicting the minotaur.

  • Arsenios: As you can see from the statues, the Minotaur is a fearsome foe—so don't forget this exlusive tour tip: He hates being stabbed! Particularly with sharp objects. They say it's his only weakness...!

They arrived at a giant fallen statue of Minotaur which was missing the lower half of the body.

  • Arsenios: Behold, an exact replica of the Minotaur!
    Actual Minotaur size may vary.
  • Kassandra: Where's the rest of him?
  • Arsenios: Up the hill. Some of the workers lost control moving it into place. It killed two of them. Horns torn them clean apart. Well, not "clean" apart.
  • Kassandra: Sounds like even Minotaur statues are deadly.
  • Arsenios: Oh, they're the deadliest! They say Theseus himself was killed by a Minotaur statue.

  • Kassandra: I've heard many tales of the Minotaur. They usually make Theseus sound more... heroic.
  • Arsenios: Well, Sparta's not known for its quality education, is it? Next thing, you'll tell me Medusa's real!

  • Kassandra: Whether Theseus was crushed by the Minotaur, or... by a large statue shaped like the Minotaur, he was nothing compared to me. I will succeed where he failed.
  • Arsenios: Oh, a confident warrior! Perhaps you'll be the first to return...

  • Kassandra: Let's just continue the tour.
  • Arsenios: Hey, in Pephka, the hero's always right! This way!

Kassandra followed Arsenios as they made their way to another landmark.

  • Arsenios: Look out, that rock's actually a Minotaur dropping. He must have been through here! I can't believe we missed him!
    Here's another helpful tip you won't get on any other tour—the Minotaur... isn't a morning person! Trust me, I know my Minotaurs—I've been in this business 27 years. Just between you and me, I'm kinda hoping my boy, Arsenios Jr., takes over some day. Good kid, goooood kid.

They arrived at a marketplace.

  • Arsenios: Warriors from all over the Aegean come to Pephka to face the Mighty Minotaur, hoping to claim his head as the ultimate prize. So far, well, he's killed all of them. But! Drinking freshly squeezed Minotaur Hoof Elixir will no doubt give you the oomph you'll need to triump!

(If players choose "Where does the Elixir come from?")

  • Kassandra: Where does this "Minotaur Hoof Elixir" come from?
  • Arsenios: The Hoof of the Minotaur, obviously! It's right there in the name.
  • Kassandra: ...Uh huh.

(If players choose "What does the Elixir do?")

  • Kassandra: What does this elixir do, besides... give me "oomph"?
  • Arsenios: Depends. What ails you, friend? Sore throat? Slow-healing wounds? Itchy bits on parts unmentionable?
  • Kassandra: Will it cure the regret of taking unnecessary tours?
  • Arsenios: ...Yes!

(You have this Elixir, I'm sure.)

  • Kassandra: And let me guess, you've got a vial, ready for purchase?
  • Arsenios: It's just like pater always said, "Never leave home without the ground up hooves of a mythical creature."

  • Kassandra: You never know when you'll need some... Minotaur Hoof... Elixir...
  • Arsenios: You've made a wise purchase, my fiscally responsible friend! Now come! There's so much more to see!

  • Kassandra: I'll pass.
  • Arsenios: Of course, of course! You're under no obligation to help a poor kid form the streets of Pephka make an honest income in order to save his frail and sickly grandmother.
  • Kassandra: If she's sick, why did you cough?
  • Arsenios: I'm very empathetic?

  • Kassandra: That's the most pathetic lie I've ever heard. And I lived on Kephallonia.
  • Arsenios: Yeah, well, it was worth a shot. Now come! There's so much more to see!

  • Kassandra: You're doing all this for your grandmother?
  • Arsenios: She puts on a brave face for me, but I hear her crying at night when she thinks I'm asleep. She's always moaning, or vomiting, or moaning and vomiting.
    If only I could sell more Minotaur Hoof Elixir, we might be able to afford a physician...!

  • Kassandra: You never know when you'll need some... Minotaur Hoof... Elixir...
  • Arsenios: You've made a wise purchase, my fiscally responsible friend! Now come! There's so much more to see!

  • Kassandra: If your elixir's so potent, maybe you could give your grandmother a bottle or two?
  • Arsenios: Great idea! ...If you could just pay for them –
  • Kassandra: No.
  • Arsenios: No?
  • Kassandra: No.
  • Arsenios: Now come! There's so much more to see!

Kassandra followed Arsenios once again.

  • Arsenios: I'm not saying I'm responsible for breaking the Minotaur statue, but I'm also not saying I'm not responsible.

She followed the boy into a cave behind the market, reaching a chamber.

  • Arsenios: And so concludes our tour!
  • Kassandra: ... That's the tour?! I didn't learn anything about the Minotaur!
  • Arsenios: My customers are always satisfied!

A number of men began surrounding Kassandra.

  • Arsenios: You can pay my associates on your way out. Please enjoy the rest of your stay here in Pephka!

  • Kassandra: Good scam, kid. If I was ambitious as you when I was your age, my life would've turned out much better.
    Possibly making bad wine on an island somewhere...

Kassandra paid Arsenios the full amount.

  • Arsenios: Thank you.
    Until next time, warrior!
  • Kassandra: Oh no, no, no, no, absolutely not.

Arsenios' thugs left.

  • Arsenios: Can I interest you in purchasing some fermented Minotaur droppings or–
  • Kassandra: Are you really going to try that on me again?!
  • Arsenios: Can't hit the target if you don't shoot the arrow!

  • Kassandra: You're not getting one drachma out of me.
  • Arsenios: No, not one—I'm getting all of it. Get her!

The men drew their swords and attacked Kassandra.

  • Arsenios: Don't damage her gear! We can get a good price for it. She's basically walking drachmae!

Kassandra eliminated the boy's thugs. She talked to the young boy.

  • Arsenios: ... Uh, well done, warrior! You've passed the... "Survive the Thugs" test! Not, uh, not everyone passes that! You've earned an extra 10% off our world famous Minotaur tunics! Or, haha, you know what? You've given me a great tour! A tour of friendship! Which I will totally pay for! here, a large drachma fee for your fantastic friendship tour!
  • Kassandra: A pleasure doing business with you.

(If players have not eliminated Melite.)

  • Kassandra: One more thing: I'm looking for someone named "Melite". A man with influence and an obssession with masks.
  • Arsenios: Never heard the name. But there's a man in town. Leiandros, he knows everyone. I bet he can help you.
(If players already met Leiandros)
  • Kassandra: Leiandros? He's of no use to me.
  • Arsenios: Hey!
  • Arsenios: What's it like being a misthios?
  • Kassandra: Could be worse.

Outcome

Kassandra participated in a "tour" on the Minotaur by Arsenios.
