Does bribe actually work? Does it only work on some monsters and not others, or does the monster being permed have anything to do with it?

Bottom of Wide Stairs

Your boots crunch on crushed bitumen and concrete rubble that makes up the
recently raked surface of a wide path running west-east from here. This path
is a main walkway across the plot and provides a border between gardens and
the main hub building. Lush pumpkins and other marrows grow on lazy vines
all over the ground to the north. A wide set of metal stairs lead up to the
middle floor of the building at this point but the stairs look like they
might be dangerous and should not be used by inexperienced players.
Obvious exits: east, west, climb stairs.

After reading the help file it says bribing makes monsters leave the room, and i previously thought bribing only stopped them from attacking you. But does this mean that the thing goes away entirely or just into another room? Anyone tried to do something similar?

So some expensive cats do leave and aren't anywhere near, but it seems it only works for wandering mobs ( ? ) any confirmations?

you cannot bribe a perm, no - bribe works (on a set of dice, ie sometimes works, sometimes not) only on traffic monsters

else players could bribe a guardian monster to sod off so they could pick up quest objects etc, which would not appear fair

will a higher amount of money affect you chances of getting rid of the monster?

... a very good question and one I _could_ spoil by telling you the answer, or suggest you can work it out yourself with a little spare cash...
