What is an insolence challenge?
The insolence challenges are special dialogues, sometimes obligatory, sometimes not. Success or failure may change the course of the story and affect other characters and your adventure. They are therefore not to be taken lightly.
How to trigger them
To trigger an insolence challenge, the option must be present in the choice of answers during a dialogue.
How does an insolence challenge work?
The insolence challenge will ask you to use the correct answers in order to make your opponent fold. You will have to pass a certain number of answers and, if you fail, your opponent will win the "round". Depending on the conversation, you will have more or less "rounds" to win in order to succeed in the challenge, and the same goes for your opponent. Sometimes during certain challenges, the slightest mistake will make you lose the challenge, so be careful!
To choose the right answer, you have to be very attentive to what the other person is saying. For example, if the person you're talking to tells you:
Again, with that? Shouldn't you be in bed already?
You will have three choices of answers, namely:
- Time to go to bed?
- No time to go to bed.
- Be nice.
Here, to succeed in the dialogue, it will therefore be necessary to respond to what your interlocutor said, namely, to talk about going to bed. This is what is called in-game a "keyword". At the start of the adventure, these are shown but, very quickly, it will be up to you to guess them! Roughly speaking, it will be necessary to use the arguments of your interlocutor to turn them against him, quite simply!
Here in this case, he is telling you that it is supposed to be time for you to go to bed, so you will have to choose the appropriate answer that talks about the fact that you should be in bed. In other words, the correct answer is: "no time to go to bed" or "time to go to bed".
Even if the first insolence challenges are easy, you should know that you will have a limited time to answer, so do not hesitate too long! Fortunately, it is possible to take a break to come and read this little guide which gives you all the right answers, ehéhéh!
