No, I couldn't find a truly satisfying end to that side-quest.  I can end it badly and get the orb though.

Maybe it just wasn't done all the way through yet, or it could be an example of real life, when sometimes there are no happy endings.

Yea, I agree with the real life part.  But what I end up doing is

blackmailing her into giving me the reward
.  Something like that deserves a loss of personality, I would think.  So I hope there will be alternative.

I did the same thing but I do remember there is a happy way to end and still get the orb or was that just my mind mixing up parts of the game.

Well, you could state the happy way to get the orb and we can decide if it's just your mind mixing things up, I mean, right now we have nothing to work with.

Oh yea...

you can just ask him to leave (you have to do it before reading the letters though)

But it's happy in a cultist sort of way.....

I say that that's a neutral ending, could be happier, methinks.

Yup thats the ending bittersweet sweet for you bitter for the dude who has to leave. But I'd rather take his gold.

Both Wadi and Mahboob deserve to be ripped off. I think that that Taking Wadi's gold, blackmailing Mahboob, then telling Wadi's wife anyway, is the good ending; they get the justice they deserve, you get gold, and everything comes out into the open.

That, ladies and gentlemen, is our typical "sadistic, yet very, very right" Steelfist. :D

Although, I think we can all agree that killing Wadi would be a little much, right?
