A well armored man wonders into the Mystic Pearl, intent of finding some new things after bashing some Ogre's to death.

"Ohy! Do you have a magical version of one of these?"

Handing over his wicked looking blade, the manager smiles and says "Why, in fact we do! We just had a rare version of this sword brought in. Forged from a special iron, I think the equipment would be quite worth it for you."

Tyrion takes the cold iron sword in his hand, and smiles a little as he swings it around. "How much?"

"4450 gold pieces sir."

With a shake of his head Tyrion says "Damn, too high. What about one forged from good ol' steel."

The shop keeper thinks for a minute before smiling "I do have one actually. Also, take a look at this cape while I look in the back."

Noting the fine detail on a simple black cape, Tyrion is all smiles when the shop keeper returns. "I'll take em both. Keep that sword; some rookie might want to use it."

Wrapping the cloak around his neck, and sheathing the new sword over his back, Tyrion sets off back to the Inn.

Ring of Sustenance: fail 1d100=82

Rolling to determine if a Headband of Vast Intelligence is in the Market within Blasingdell as per The Forge of Fury rules...

Roll of 1 to 75 on a d100 will get me the Headband of Vast Intelligence +2 (Result: 56) (EDIT: Please note, I accidentally mispelled Blasingdell when making that roll).

Headband of Vast Intelligence +2 is present in Blasingdell.

We will each be getting at least 767 gp of loot off of the Orc's treasure. As of the time that I last counted my Time Based XP I had 3,836.47 gp to my name not counting expenditures already made. So when combined with what I get from the Orc Treasure, that is a total of 4,603.47 gp. Deducting 4,000 gp for the headband of vast intelligence +2 would leave me with 603.47 gp.

EDIT: I just rolled randomly to determine the skill that my headband of vast intelligence grants skill points in and I determined it the following way: I roll a 1d10 and on each of the numbers it gains one of the knowledge skills at random as follows:

1 = Arcana
2 = Dungeoneering
3 = Engineering
4 = Geography
5 = History
6 = Local
7 = Nature
8 = Nobility
9 = Planes
10 = Religion

Since I rolled an 8, the random number generator determined that the headband would grant skill ranks in Knowledge (Nobility) equal to Fae'shiel's hit points after she has worn the headband for 24 hours. Assuming that is acceptable with the DM's?

EDIT2: Also attempting to find a Cloak of Resistance in Blasingdell Result 65 = success

OOC: Final Purchases
Headband of Vast Intellect +2, w/ Knowledge (Nobility) = 4,000 gp
Cloak of Resistance +1 = 1,000 gp

Final GP Total = 737.97

Iago strolls through the streets of Blasingdell. The group's meeting with the priestess, Ariel, relieves his most urgent concerns, but he still feels some apprehension about the upcoming exploration of the mountain.

As he passes a vendor, he notices a rune-covered backpack. Taking it up, he realizes it is larger inside than out.

The vendor spies his interest, and they begin to bargain.

OOC: Iago is purchasing a Handy Haversack. His roll is a success. Looking for Handy Haversack in Blasingell (1d100=60)

Thuvian walks into the shop and heads straight to the scroll section, where he spends some time looking over the various scrolls, but ultimately he only picks one up before moving to other areas of the store, where he spends significantly less time. He grabs a few defensive items before heading over to the weapons section, where he frowns a bit before picking up a couple of things there and heading to the register, where he sells a few old items as he is buying what he picked up. Once everything is paid for at the register, he inquires about their enchanting services and proceeds to commission that the MW crossbow he was forced to settle on be enchanted to +1.

Scroll of Haunted Fey Aspect, +1 Bracers of Armor (1d100, 1d100=[47], [56])

Damaris enters the establishment with a big smile on her face and almost tip toes to the counter. "Good day sir! I was wondering if would you have a nice magical cloak...oh, and also a good longbow, wait, you know what? Give me a Composite one... yes, that one!" she says thrilled. "Oh, and by any chance would you have half a wand of Cure Light Wounds?"

Afterwards she goes down the street from the Mystic Pearl to talk to Rhibarn about getting some living quarters. "I'm looking for something cozy, well lit and with big windows" She ends up with with a small apartment near the market with a partial view to a nice park.

Arianna returns to the Mystic Pearl, the emporium where anything can be bought, if you know how to ask for it. She finds a clerk and gets help finding most of what she is looking for. A backpack that carries the weight so she doesn't have to. And it has to be able to deal with her extended trips in the sea. Something that blocks magic missiles and lets her fling them back at people. Something that will let her tip the scales of luck when she needs it most. These major items the clerk is able to find for her. When looking for a potion to endure cold or hot weather, the shop is out of stock. They do have potions that will make her bigger and stronger though. Finally, she comes to the realization that her money purse is not infinitely full and settles up on what they have found together so far.

"Wait a minute, I can't use that thing. It is for sirens, not me." She puts back the scrawled trinket.

A pale eyed dwarf bursts into the Mystic Pearl, literally skidding to a stop.

"Can I help y--" the clerk begins.

"No time! No time! Cavernous Hode is horribly underdressed! And late! How can he be an adventurer if he is underdressed and late? He will be roundly mocked and never invited to adventure again!" He begins tearing through the bins.

"Sir! Sir! I must ask y--"

"This! This is perfect for Cavernous Hode!" he says, holding up a breastplate carved from a turtle shell. "And Cavernous Hode will take some potions and things," he says, sweeping the contents of a shelf into his pack.

"But it costs--"

The dwarf throws a large pouch of gold on the counter and pulls off his hide armor. "This is adequate compensation, yes?" he says, pulling on the breastplate.

"Sir! Sir! You--"

"No time! No time! Cavernous Hode is already late!" He runs out of the store in no less of a hurry than he ran in.

As the door closes, the clerk sighs and says, "I was trying to tell you that you had the breastplate on backwards."

Haunted Fey Aspect = 71; Mount = 46

Thuvian quickly stops by Arcane Row, though his stops include more than just the Mystic Pearl. At the Pearl, he quickly grabs a few more scrolls he thinks might be useful, alhtough. The rest of the shopping trip involves securing and provisioning for a mount and himself for a long trip. He then retires to his home to quickly get a few of the more useful spells put in his spellbook.

Having received a retainer for more work, Tasanto stops by the Pearl to pick up a couple scrolls. Shopping around, he finds what he needs. To cover the costs, he still has to sell back a potion, but the new scrolls provide more versatility. Considering the long journey, he stocks up on food as well for the trip. The final item he grabs is a small tent.

Anaerion comes in, looking for a special spellbook that will allow him a much easier time adding spells. However, not finding one, he discusses with the clerk about having one crafted for him.

In the mean time, Anaerion looks for a ring that will allow him more time in the day to be awake, and a spell that will simplify his camping when he returns to the field.

But for now, Anaerion was looking for a place to live while living in Venza. He asks around for a place with ample storage space for books, to both further his study and to allow Malkovian more books to read.

Blessed Book: Not found :( 1d100=100. Commission Started 3/25/2013. Paid 12,500 in advance for completion. Will be completed in 39 days, on May 3rd 2013.
Ring of Sustenance: 1d100=58
Average Life Style: 100 gp
Rope Trick 1d100=3 190 gold. Anaerion auto makes the Spellcraft check (DC 17 vs Spellcraft + 19)
Books: 400 gp in reading materials.

17,400 gold in total.

Anaerion returns later in the afternoon, inquring about a stylish cloak to wear while he goes adventuring. Finding one that meets his need, he quickly buys it and leaves.

Cloak of Resistance +1: 1d100=28 Found. 1000 gp
