Choose the Madam M Route in Chapter 9

Madam M.jpg

You will unlock this quest depending on the choices you make during the conversation with Johnny, Sam's coin toss, and Madam M's massage courses, as well as a few other interactions. Each choice you make from the table below adds onto a score. Depending on which of the two scores is higher, the route will change accordingly.

When presented with the dialogue options from the table above, select the options highlighted in red to go on Madam M's route, guaranteed.

Note that you only need to have a higher score for Madam M than for Sam to take her side quests, so it is still possible to take her route without doing everything shown above, as along as you score more points toward Madam M than for Sam.

The Price of Thievery Tips & Tricks

How to Beat the Grungy Bandit

The Grungy Bandit you encounter here is not too different from the other bandits for the most part. You should be able to make quick work of all of them by using a Fire Materia slotted together with Magnify.

Steal a Champion Belt

The rare and powerful Accessory Champion Belt can be stolen from the Grungy Bandit. Stealing from the Grungy Bandit is the only way to obtain this item other than winning the Pro difficulty on the Pull-Up Challenge, which is quite a feat, so be sure not to miss it here.
