If Morte is in the party, he immediately thinks that it's his skull and demands to have it back.
- Telling him that the skull isn't his results in a fight.
- Telling him that he won't get the skull increases Morte's morale.
- Telling him to take the skull results in Morte attacking Yellow-Fingers (and possibly decreases Morte's morale, verify)
- Offering to buy the skull off him exasperates Morte, but 5 coppers will suffice.
If the matter is settled without bloodshed, and if TNO didn't ask questions, Yellow-Fingers attempts to pickpocket TNO. (Requires 12+ Intelligence to notice.) Observing his technique grants 200 XP and +1 Pick Pockets skill. Grabbing his hand as he goes for a second attempt requires 12+ dexterity but ends in violence. Asking what he's doing allows TNO to threaten him, and ask for the money back.
