Unable to get Niven
« on: April 17, 2010, 11:57:09 PM »

I have 12 personality and aptitude, and I've finished the first mission, but I still can't seem to get Niven. There's no option that hints at it. What's the dialogue sequence to ask him to join?

Never mind. It worked just now, for some reason.

It takes a while (several knife throw sessions) to get that option.

I think it might have been because I didn't have 200 gold. Maybe you need 200 gold to unlock that option, even if you have enough personality?

to get niven you only have to do his knife thing once, complete the first mission, and have personality higher than at least 8 to have him join you for free

I got 12 personality and aptitude at the start.
I did his knife thing a bunch of times.
Then I finished mission 1.
Then I did his knife thing a bunch more times.
When he lets you join, you are unable to do the knife thing - when you ask him what he wants, he tells you he wants a job, and the knife-throwing is inaccessible.
So, since I did the knife thing several times in several different instances, Niven must have not let me join, right?
So something was wrong...

Cheddarius- torugo has listed the correct requirements. Methinks you were mixing up the time when you allowed him to practice his knife throw on you before and after doing mission 1.
