A small, hooded figure in a red cloak darts into the shop and nearly runs straight to the counter.

"A potion to Cure Light Wounds." she orders. The man behind the counter peers questionably over his large mustache at the halfling. After a brief and uncomfortable few seconds, she thrusts her hand out and drops a fistful of coin onto the counter. The man produces the potion and the halfling grabs it without further conversation, darting out of the shop to deliver the item to her mistress.

OOC: 1 Potion, Cure Light Wounds (in stock); 50gp

As evening approaches, Sylla taps at the entrance of the shaman's yurt and is told to enter. The elf archer enters with her eidolon trailing behind her. The tribe's shaman sits cross-legged on the floor.

“You asked to see me?”
she says in her accented Goti.

Tuumor nods. “I merely relay the words that the spirits whisper on the wind, Heart-of-Maga. They tell me that you are to be tested.”

Sylla's eyes narrow. “How, exactly?”

Tuumor nods. “Tonight is the night of the new moon. Your vanities, leave them here on this altar until the moon is full.”

“My 'vanities'?” she asks suspiciously.

“Those things you use to hide from the world. The crafted dragonskin … the jewelry … these things are your crutches. Make do without them for a half moon. The spirits ask this of you.”


Sylla snorts and turns to leave. “Like hell.”

Tuumor shrugs. “So be it.”

“Boss,”
Boots says. “Boss.”

The elf pauses. “What?” she growls.

“You need to do this,” the eidolon says. For a long moment, elf and darkwolf stare at one another, neither inclined to move, but it is the elf who finally drops her eyes. Her fists clench and unclench, but after a moment she strides forward, stripping off her leather accessories and her jeweled headband, before turning to leave again.

“All
of your vanities,”
Tuumor says.

The elf pauses again, and after a brief internal struggle, places her set of face paints on the altar as well.

The shaman nods. “It is well.”

Sylla snarls a wordless retort and walks barefoot into the night, Boots following after her.

The door swings open and a dark skinned, tattooed savage pushes his way in side. He grins as he reaches the counter and plonks down a heavy sack of coins. "Maui wants magic to hear te spirits of home closer. And te arms stronger!" He laughs as though this time he has found a challenge this seller of magics will not be able to meet. His face drops when the owner drops both requested items down on the counter a few moments later. "And magic to protect Maui when he is te big cat?" Maui grins as a wand and a ring are also plonked on the counter. Maui shoves over his coin with a chuckle and walks out the door musing, "I love this place ..."

A well dressed human of features common of the local Venzins walks in. He is well dressed and carries an ivory handled rapier at his side.

"Maui, great jungle warrior and holy man of the spirit plains! What a trip we had, yes?

He leans over the counter and points to his armor, "have you any better then this?"

"Deal"

"Any thing else?"

"Why yes, I believe its called a haversack."
handy haversack: 1D100 = [72] = 72

As the armor is removed from the stack, the proprieter is saying they do not have one, when right under neath the armor is a haversack. "er, I guess we DO have one!"

Right then a wealthy man walks in with a pair of boots, explaining he won them in a bet. the boots allow you to land softly from a fall and always on your feet"

Iago strides into the Mystic Pearl. His mood is dour, despite the coin in his pocket. After such a promising beginning, his venture to find the lost Dwarven treasure collapsed ignominiously. Was fate toying with him? Perhaps he simply was not cut out to lead such ventures.

All the same, he chose to prepare himself for whatever fate dealt him in future. A belt by the door caught his eye.

OOC: Attempting to Purchase a Belt of Incredible Dexterity - success!
1d100=13


The belt is a welcome addition to his armory. Next he looks at some potions
OOC:
Purchasing Potion: Longstrider (from inventory)
Rolling for Elixir of Hiding - Fail!
1d100=83
Rolling for Elixir of Swimming - Success!
1d100=56
Rolling for Potion of Sanctuary - Fail!
1d100=88


The selection of potions is more limited than he had hoped, but Iago made at least some worthwhile purchases. He makes his way through the shop to consider scrolls.

OOC: Attempting to purchase Scroll of Invisibility - Fail!
1d100=97
Attempting to purchase Scroll of Lesser Restoration - Fail!
1d100=80
Attempting to purchase Scroll of Darkvision - Success!
1d100=67
Attempting to purchase Scroll of Fox's Cunning - Success!
1d100=70


Iago grunts as he concludes his transactions. He did not find everything he had hoped for, but he still left better armed than he had hoped.

Before leaving, he commissions two scrolls, hoping to learn more secrets through patience rather than fortune.

OOC: Commissioning Scroll of Lesser Restoration & Scroll of Invisibility

A young human, well tanned by travel, walks in. the merchant smiles and hands a wrapped parcel to him. Unwrapping it, the young human smiles and places a very well made rapier on his hip and leaves with an air of confidence.

Two weeks later, Sylla walks through the door of the hut, her face unpainted but her expression as dour as ever. Boots, as ever follows behind her. Tuumor nods his approval.
“You have returned. And you have survived. Do you feel stronger, Heart-of-Maga?”

The elf glares at the shaman. “I feel angrier. Where are my things? I want them back. Now.”

Tuumor gestures at the altar. “There. The spirits have blessed them. Abyrtan gave your bracers the touch of air. Brandis Grassfoot gave his grace to your boots. Perria of the Waters put her blessing of your belt, so that you flow like a river over stones. Glonnadin of the War Host gave power to the glove you wear to strike your enemies. And the jewelry … Maga took them, for they glitter so. And you must have her respect, hunter, because more than that, she brought them back to you. A great sacrifice for a crow, you must agree.”

Sylla pauses in the act of putting on her belt. “I do not venerate your spirits, shaman.”

Tuumor shakes his head. “You do not think so, perhaps, but you do. When you returned our child to her tribe. When you spilled Juhelos’ heart’s blood in Maga’s name. When you trusted the spirits enough to walk without your armor for a half moon.”

Sylla doesn’t reply as she stiffly puts the last of the items back on and collects her face paint. As she walks through the door, Boots whispers, “Told you so.”

“Shut up.”

Larissa enters the Mystic Pearl. She takes the two swords she intends to sell to the bladesmith and, after briefly haggling, sells both at a fair price. Then she presents her own blade.

"I wish to strengthen the enchantments on this," she explains. "It is a sacred weapon, in service to the Host. Can you do it justice?"

The old Dwarf nods brusquely and takes the blade, promising it in some days.

Larissa turns, coins still jingling in her pocket, but notices an armored belt on her way out. Examining the enchantment, she smiles. She quickly negotiates a price, and hands over the gold She leaves the Mystic Pearl better equipped than when she entered.

She also picks up a scroll designed to delay the action of poisons, just in case.

OOC:
Selling:
+1 Mimetic Shortsword (8310 gp)
+1 Greatsword (2350)

Buying:

Menik walks into the Pearl with a distracted expression on his face, as if the elven wizard is lost in thought.

"I almost have it figured out! If only ... Do you have anything that could make me, well ... smarter?"

ooc: Buying a Headband of Vast Intelligence +2 (4000 gp) (search: 1d100 = 33)

[sblock=ooc]You choose the knowledge skill it is applied to. A suggestion is to put it in a skill that you don't have ranks in yet, as you don't get them back to put elsewhere. In your case, Kn Planes or Kn Religion are probably best. Knowing what that demon's weaknesses are important when you fight one. So, effectively having that skill always maxed is good. [/sblock]

OOC: huh, I thought that if you don't make it, it was random.
also, just corrected Know: dungeoneering with the ranks as he had a total of 2 higher then it should be. I had counted the bonus as Misc, not ranks.
