PostSubject: When Life Gives You Loot...   Mon Jul 18, 2011 1:25 am

Merchants, as far as Alicia could tell, spent a rather large amount of their time traveling the land to peddle their wares. Sure- some villages and the larger cities certainly had local vendors that owned physical shops in said towns- but almost every merchant Alicia had met had been on the road and simply selling straight from their carts.

When the familiar sound of creaking wheels met Alicia's ears while she was working on her new dwelling, a slight grin came to her features and she dropped the tool she had been using to strip the trees she had felled of their excess branches and she approached the sound. It appeared to be a standard caravan sort of deal- with a retinue of five guards (that she could see) alongside the somewhat pudgy merchant who rode upon his cart. With a wave and a shout, she garnered the attention of the lot and walked up to the caravan.

After exchanging names and going through all of the formalities (what brings you to this part of the woods- do you live here alone- latest gossip- etc), Alicia was allowed to look through his various wares. It seemed the man was some sort of amateur arms-dealer alongside of the standard goods merchants usually carried (clothes, food, various useful items- you get the idea), as he had a pretty hefty amount of weapons and armor to go alongside his normal wears. After purchasing what she needed supplies-wise (a saw, some food and a new waterskin), Alicia's eyes lit upon a strange-looking, well-crafted bow and a light chain shirt that seemed to be just her size. Pointing at them- Alicia nodded to the merchant and asked, "How much for the bow and the mail?"

+328 EXP

>> Rolling Barter: Composite Bow (Uncommon) + Increased Damage (Uncommon) = Base Cost 50
>> Rolling Barter: Light Armor: Chainmail (Rare) = Base Cost 50
>> Rolling Barter: 2 Quivers of Arrows (Common x2) = Base Cost 20

Bow cost = 55
Mail cost = 55
Arrows cost = 22

55 + 55 + 22 = 132

Spending 61 Very Common items (122)

Can't afford the second set of arrows- thus Alicia puts it back

Wincing slightly as she handed over what was, essentially, all of her bartering items, Alicia couldn't help but think that she had been slightly ripped-off by the merchant. That being said, she had never been very good at bartering- and rarely had any chance to hone her craft in such dealings as she rarely had need for anything beyond what she had on her person.

Nevertheless, Alicia accepted the bow, the chainmail and a quiver of arrows from the merchant- knowing that it would be useful to have such items with her. She could hunt and replenish her items with the bow- and the mail would be useful once she finished her new house and started to adventure again; plus, it was rather difficult to claim to be a knight when you walked around wearing a tank-top and didn't have a sword. She was a bit dismayed that the man only had terrible-looking blades- but Alicia knew that she would find another in time.

Taking her purchases, she bid farewell to the merchant and his men and returned to her new found dwelling, confident that her decision to spend the majority of what she had had not been a bad decision. After all, she had no real formal training with a bow- and only a slight understanding of the mechanics involved therein; but she was relatively sure she would be able to teach herself such things in the coming days.

Relatively sure.

+271 EXP

Bow:
