Right after breakfast, the
adventures are taking a visit at the shops. There are two: one
is called Ochi's Roadwear, the other Mizumo's
Tomes. You are looking to see Deedlit, but apparently she
has gone out already.
Nicolai has produced a stash of
2500 gold, and you are looking at the available goods. At
least there is plenty of stock.
out the fancier stuff he keeps in the back, has:
crudes at 200 or Elfwood at 400 gold a piece;
gold and better ones at 250 gold;
Armor, leather at 200
gold, or studded at 400; chain costs 600
for 100 gold, silver at 300;
Helmets, leather for 50 gold,
Boots, leather for 50 gold, silver 250;
Gloves, leather for 50 gold, silver 150;
leather ones at 100 gold, or fine, green Elven ones at 500.
There are also axes and a lot of spears, but no throwing
weapon of any kind.
Mizumo's shows you several
Spellbooks that you do not recognize. They are called: Blind,
Tag, Fog and Dark Lantern! All rather expensive, and Mizumo
himself says that they would do you no good unless you first
aquire the Grey Magic skill, whatever that is.
But he is
willing to sell you some scrolls so you can try these spells
out, these go at 50, 75, 100 and 125 gold respectively.
Further, he sells all the basic potions for 10 gold and
has plenty of each. You ask for skillbooks, but he looks at
you funny like he's never heard of those.
When you go
back to take a drink at the tavern, still undecided what to
buy and where to go next, you are surprised to see another
human there. Clearly a seasoned veteran of sorts, a firm man
going by the name of Dragonheart. It is only polite that you
enter a conversation with him.
"My, my, what have we here. If I hadn't heard about your brave
fight with the Poohbears, I would of said that you seemed, er,
out of place in this wilderness."
Regran: "We have
gone through worse before."
Jermy: "And we are just
going to do some shopping for better stuff."
"What are you doing here, anyway?"
"Come, no need to be all defensive. Here, let me pay for your
drinks. I am a Dragon hunter, There are quite a few of those
in these parts, usually in caves on the coast, and they bring
in good money if you sell the claws and teeth in Volee. If you
ever want to go Dragon hunting, I could teach you the ropes.
That is, if you can pay my fee, haha."
"You ask a fee?"
Dragonheart: "That'd be 5000 gold
a week. Of course you could always start with something
The old man points out a poster on the wall,
"A promise is a promise. A 500 gold for
every Qallupilluit skull."
But Nicolai reminds them
that they have a quest to do. He is real eager to find Lord
Markham and maybe other people of importance, which this
village is lacking.
overhearing: "If you don't know what to do, you can always go
looking for the Seer, who lives up in the mountain east of the
village. Could be fun."
If you have no
feet, don't walk on fire.
