A little shopping and a lot of aimless wandering

http://crowbarman.crowbarland.name/SerpentMap.jpg
[4:19:14:34] <@[twisti]> the map is stylized and hand drawn, so dont expect it to be fully accurate
[4:19:14:34] <@LumberJane> and where are we now?
[4:19:14:34] <@[twisti]> for example, the building placement is random
[4:19:14:34] <@[twisti]> in monitor
[4:19:14:34] <@[twisti]> in the general store
[4:19:14:35] <@[twisti]> where you just bought this fine map, for only 3 gold coins
[4:19:14:35] <@LumberJane> okay
[4:19:14:35] <@LumberJane> crow keeps track of the shinies
[4:19:14:35] <@LumberJane> I just have a bunch of scrolls
[4:19:14:35] <@LumberJane> and a brick tongue
[4:19:14:35] <@Crowbarman> we still have 28, if you need to buy anything
[4:19:14:35] <@LumberJane> I love my brick
[4:19:14:35] <@[twisti]> i have 28 gold counted for crow
[4:19:14:36] <@[twisti]> is that right ?
[4:19:14:36] <@LumberJane> do we have a list of what is available in the shop?
[4:19:14:36] <@[twisti]> no
[4:19:14:36] <@LumberJane> well we need one tongue
[4:19:14:36] <@[twisti]> its a general adventurer store
[4:19:14:36] <@[twisti]> no weapons, just supplies
[4:19:14:36] <@[twisti]> like torches, ropes, backpacks, etc
[4:19:14:36] <@LumberJane> no foods either?
[4:19:14:36] <@[twisti]> im not spending an hour typing up a list of shit you dont want
[4:19:14:36] <@Crowbarman> "swamp of gorlab" who's gorlab?
[4:19:14:37] <@LumberJane> lol it's ok
[4:19:14:37] <@[twisti]> no foods here
[4:19:14:37] <@LumberJane> I'll do a quick list of what I might want
[4:19:14:37] <@LumberJane> and you can tell me if any is available
[4:19:14:37] <@[twisti]> i dont remember, i think a mythical spider monster or so
[4:19:14:37] <@[twisti]> sure lj
[4:19:14:37] <@LumberJane> lamp oil, tiny bell, butter, small dart, down (feathers)
[4:19:14:38] <@[twisti]> aha
[4:19:14:38] <@LumberJane> tongue
[4:19:14:38] <@[twisti]> spell supplies wink
[4:19:14:38] <@[twisti]> no small darts here
[4:19:14:38] <@[twisti]> but he suggests that the smith could probably make you some
[4:19:14:38] <@[twisti]> the only thing of that list he has is lamp oil
[4:19:14:39] <@LumberJane> I only need a small container of lamp oil then
[4:19:14:39] <@[twisti]> 2 gold will give you enough for a night of burning
[4:19:14:39] <@[twisti]> the book doesnt say how much the spell uses up, right ?
[4:19:14:40] <@LumberJane> it says a drop
[4:19:14:40] <@[twisti]> then that much will get you at least 20 uses, more if you have time to handle it carefully
[4:19:14:40] <@LumberJane> okay
[4:19:14:40] <@[twisti]> how much do you want to buy ?
[4:19:14:40] <@Crowbarman> we're not going to spend all our shinies just to give you a slightly better chance at casting your spells
[4:19:14:40] <@LumberJane> only 2
[4:19:14:41] * Parts: Rockstar
[4:19:14:41] * Joins: Rockstar
[4:19:14:41] * ChanServ sets mode: +o Rockstar
[4:19:14:41] <@[twisti]> for 2 gold or 2 portions ?
[4:19:14:41] <@Rockstar> HI EVERYONE
[4:19:14:41] <@[twisti]> hi rocky
[4:19:14:41] <@Rockstar> It's me, Waleran or something
[4:19:14:41] <@LumberJane> hi rocky
[4:19:14:41] <@LumberJane> 2 gold
[4:19:14:41] <@[twisti]> you can tag along if the others dont mind, but youre a second rate citizen
[4:19:14:41] <@LumberJane> my "only 2" was for crow
[4:19:14:42] <@[twisti]> alright
[4:19:14:42] <@[twisti]> anything else ?
[4:19:14:42] <@Rockstar> I probably won't
[4:19:14:43] <@[twisti]> i think youre all armed now, so you dont really have to hold back for weapons
[4:19:14:43] <@[twisti]> and you have food for 7 more days i believe
[4:19:14:43] <@Crowbarman> oh, what are we getting for selling the speers
[4:19:14:44] <@[twisti]> hes not a weaponsmith and doesnt want to buy your spears
[4:19:14:44] <@Crowbarman> right, where's the weaponsmith?
[4:19:14:44] <@[twisti]> right next door
[4:19:14:44] <@Crowbarman> ok, I'm going over there to try to sell them
[4:19:14:44] <@LumberJane> As much as my spells have failed, I think even a slight improvement is a good thing
[4:19:14:44] <@LumberJane> I'll come with you
[4:19:14:45] <@[twisti]> alright
[4:19:14:45] <@Crowbarman> I think spyder went to get the swords back from the cave that he so carelessly left behind
[4:19:14:45] <@[twisti]> the weaponsmith is a giant muscular guy who is currently hammering away at an amboss
[4:19:14:45] <@[twisti]> i think you need them for him and dave
[4:19:14:46] <@Crowbarman> I look around for shinies
[4:19:14:46] <@Crowbarman> need what for who and dave?
[4:19:14:46] <@LumberJane> swords
[4:19:14:46] <@[twisti]> the swords
[4:19:14:46] <@[twisti]> one for dave, one for spyder
[4:19:14:46] <@Crowbarman> yea, ok, we have 3
[4:19:14:46] <@Crowbarman> or should if spyder didn't leave them
[4:19:14:47] <@[twisti]> there are a lot of shiney weapons, but they are mostly sort of the size of, well, you
[4:19:14:47] <@[twisti]> i have two swords for you, one from the invisible guard and one from shmed
[4:19:14:47] <@Crowbarman> excuse me, mister tall person
[4:19:14:47] <@Crowbarman> and one from the cave
[4:19:14:47] <@[twisti]> oh right
[4:19:14:47] <@[twisti]> the rapier
[4:19:14:48] <@[twisti]> ok
[4:19:14:48] <@Crowbarman> it was a rapier?
[4:19:14:48] <@[twisti]> the smith turns to you and asks what you want
[4:19:14:48] <@Crowbarman> I'd like to sell these spears
[4:19:14:48] <@[twisti]> hrm
[4:19:14:48] <@[twisti]> those arent very good spears
[4:19:14:48] <@[twisti]> poor craftsmanship
[4:19:14:49] <@[twisti]> they look like
[4:19:14:49] <@[twisti]> hrm
[4:19:14:49] <@[twisti]> where did you get those ?
[4:19:14:49] <@Crowbarman> off some poor goblin
[4:19:14:49] <@Crowbarman> s
[4:19:14:49] <@[twisti]> you slew our enemies and took those from their bodies ?
[4:19:14:49] <@Crowbarman> yes
[4:19:14:50] <@Crowbarman> they weren't using them
[4:19:14:50] <@[twisti]> then i shall give you 15 golds per spear, even if i can not use them well, but a fellow goblin slayer will always have my support
[4:19:14:50] <@[twisti]> he pats your shoulder and you almost drop to your knees
[4:19:14:50] <@Crowbarman> smile
[4:19:14:50] <@Crowbarman> shinies
[4:19:14:50] <@Crowbarman> I hand over the 5 spears
[4:19:14:51] <@[twisti]> he gives you the gold, i have a total of 101 for you now
[4:19:14:51] <@Crowbarman> yup
[4:19:14:51] <@[twisti]> anything else i can do for you fine goblin slayers ?
[4:19:14:51] <@LumberJane> Do you have any darts?
[4:19:14:52] <@[twisti]> darts, you mean throwing darts ?
[4:19:14:52] <@LumberJane> small darts,  yes
[4:19:14:52] <@[twisti]> i have none here, and they are hard to make, because they have to fly right and i have to get tail feathers from the furrier
[4:19:14:52] <@Crowbarman> I don't think they'll need to fly at all
[4:19:14:53] <@[twisti]> nm that pm lj
[4:19:14:53] <@[twisti]> well, if you just want pointy pieces of metal, i can make you some of those from nails
[4:19:14:53] <@LumberJane> I think that may work
[4:19:14:53] <@[twisti]> i wouldnt take long, so maybe 8 per gold for you
[4:19:14:54] <@LumberJane> Cassa, I only need 2 more golds, I won't ask for any more
[4:19:14:54] <@Crowbarman> ok
[4:19:14:54] * @Crowbarman hands over two more shinies
[4:19:14:54] <@LumberJane> thank you
[4:19:14:54] <@LumberJane> two sets please, sir
[4:19:14:54] <@[twisti]> if you come back in, hrm, i have to finish this sword first, maybe in 3 hours, i can have them done for you
[4:19:14:55] <@LumberJane> Okay
[4:19:14:56] <@[twisti]> dave suggests that you also might want to shop for some bandages
[4:19:14:56] <@Crowbarman> that's probably back next door
[4:19:14:56] <@LumberJane> Probably a good idea, as beat up as we get
[4:19:14:57] <@Crowbarman> I say we just need some dynomite to blow up that block stopping us from getting back to the fountains of health
[4:19:14:57] <@[twisti]> yeah, you can get some of that
[4:19:14:57] <@LumberJane> If we're hurt far from the fountain, that wouldn't help us much
[4:19:14:58] <@Crowbarman> that's where wineskins come in
[4:19:14:58] <@[twisti]> excuse me for a moment, i need to look up how much damage it does when an entire cave crashes onto a group
[4:19:14:58] <@LumberJane> lmao
[4:19:14:58] <@Crowbarman> lol
[4:19:14:58] <@Crowbarman> long fuse
[4:19:14:58] <@[twisti]> seriously though, nobody there has explosives
[4:19:14:58] <@LumberJane> I'm smart enough to not go in there
[4:19:14:59] <@[twisti]> in fact, they dont even know what that is
[4:19:14:59] <@LumberJane> Well, what now?
[4:19:15:00] <@[twisti]> dont look at me
[4:19:15:00] <@LumberJane> <<I'm asking crow. he's kinda playing leader today>>
[4:19:15:00] <@Crowbarman> well, everything is happenning later
[4:19:15:00] <@Crowbarman> we need to come back for your darts, we need to come back for the cloaks, we need the cloaks for the banquet
[4:19:15:01] <@[twisti]> which is tomorrow
[4:19:15:01] <@LumberJane> yeah
[4:19:15:01] <@LumberJane> maybe we just need to hang out for a while
[4:19:15:01] <@Crowbarman> and they have no appothecary
[4:19:15:01] <@Crowbarman> lets go see about bandages
[4:19:15:02] <@Crowbarman> maybe find someone who can train us in healing
[4:19:15:03] <@[twisti]> << ill actually allow you to pick up first aid if you can find someone to train you and have 100xp to spend >>
[4:19:15:03] <@LumberJane> I do have 100 xp
[4:19:15:04] <@LumberJane> <<>>
[4:19:15:04] <@Crowbarman> << I have 95xp, perhaps I can be at -5 for now? we're not doing anything else right now>>
[4:19:15:05] <@[twisti]> actually, i looked at the healing rules for warhammer and they kind of suck for this game, so if you find a teacher, you can learn how to use bandages, not as a technical skill, more as common knowledge
[4:19:15:06] <@Crowbarman> Common Knowledge (U7b system)
[4:19:15:06] <@[twisti]> without needing xp
[4:19:15:06] <@[twisti]> exactly
[4:19:15:06] <@Crowbarman> <<my way would need xp but would extend far beyond bandages>>
[4:19:15:07] <@[twisti]> yeah, but none of you have that skill available to you
[4:19:15:07] <@Crowbarman> ok, lets see about getting bandages first, then see if they have a healer to teach us the best way to use them
[4:19:15:10] <@[twisti]> how are you going about that ?
[4:19:15:10] <@Crowbarman> we're going next door
[4:19:15:10] <@Crowbarman> back to the general store
[4:19:15:11] <@[twisti]> the scribe is still there
[4:19:15:11] <@Crowbarman> hello again, do you happen to have any bandages
[4:19:15:11] <@LumberJane> didn't we need the scribe for something?
[4:19:15:12] <@Crowbarman> yea, a map
[4:19:15:12] <@[twisti]> of course i do, but im afraid they are merely cut up cloth, not exactly medical grade, if you know what i mean
[4:19:15:12] <@[twisti]> each pack consisting of 10 bandages will be 5 gold
[4:19:15:13] <@Crowbarman> well, it's better than nothing, do you know where we could find some of medical grade? and perhaps someone who can show us how to use them?
[4:19:15:13] <@LumberJane> Do you reuse parchment here?
[4:19:15:14] <@[twisti]> hmmm, our town does not really have a healer, but harnna is handy with healing herbs, maybe you could talk to her
[4:19:15:14] <@[twisti]> LumberJane: i dont know what that means
[4:19:15:14] <@Crowbarman> and where can we find this harnna?
[4:19:15:15] <@LumberJane> <<in the old days, they would bleach out a piece of parchment and use it again.. I was just thinking of dumping off all these scrolls we don't need anymore>>
[4:19:15:15] <@[twisti]> she owns the farm in the southern part of monitor, if you cant find her, look around for that giddy little girl cantra, shes her daughter
[4:19:15:15] <@Crowbarman> ok, thank you
[4:19:15:16] <@[twisti]> dave doesnt think you should sell scrolls with important things on them
[4:19:15:16] <@LumberJane> half of them are from the cave
[4:19:15:17] <@Crowbarman> lets keep the scrolls, we don't know when we might need them to start a fire
[4:19:15:17] <@LumberJane> they're only important to someone IN the caves
[4:19:15:17] <@LumberJane> well yeah, that's a good idea
[4:19:15:17] <@LumberJane> okay
[4:19:15:17] <@Crowbarman> ok, lets go find this harnna woman
[4:19:15:17] <@LumberJane> after you
[4:19:15:18] <@Crowbarman> onward, to the farm
[4:19:15:18] <@[twisti]> you find the plain looking woman tending the corn crops next to her house
[4:19:15:18] <@Crowbarman> greetings, we were wondering if you had some medical grade bandages
[4:19:15:19] <@Crowbarman> or, more importantly, the knowledge of how best to use them so you could teach us
[4:19:15:19] <@[twisti]> im afraid not. while i am the local healer, i am more adapt at the knowledge of beneficial herbs and plants
[4:19:15:19] <@[twisti]> of course i know the basics of triage
[4:19:15:20] <@Crowbarman> triage?
[4:19:15:20] <@[twisti]> isnt that what first aid to open wounds is called in english ?
[4:19:15:21] <@LumberJane> yes
[4:19:15:22] <@Crowbarman> well, I guess, if you could train us in that, we'd be most gratefull
[4:19:15:23] <@[twisti]> of course, if you bring me some bandages and pay for my time, i will happily attend your wounds and show you the basics
[4:19:15:23] <@Crowbarman> um, ok, I guess we should have bought those crap bandages then, I'll go buy them
[4:19:15:24] <@[twisti]> how many ?
[4:19:15:24] <@Crowbarman> I go back to the general store real quickly and buy the 10 for 5
[4:19:15:25] <@[twisti]> i charge 20 gold if you want me to spend my afternoon teaching you how to do this yourself and fix you up in the process
[4:19:15:25] <@Crowbarman> ok, sounds resonable
[4:19:15:27] <@[twisti]> you spend the afternoon learning how to bandage cuts, set bones and the likes, using up 5 of your bandages while she demonstrates it on you
[4:19:15:27] <@LumberJane> I want to go get my darts now
[4:19:15:27] <@Crowbarman> alright, how much of our wounds get healed in the process
[4:19:15:27] <@[twisti]> you all feel comfortable that you can address any non-life-threatening wound you might suffer
[4:19:15:27] <@[twisti]> 3 each
[4:19:15:28] <@[twisti]> and well tended to wounds will recover 2 per night
[4:19:15:28] <@LumberJane> <<I'm going to get some tea. brb>>
[4:19:15:29] <@Crowbarman> <<alright, I'm gonna go baffoom then>>
[4:19:15:29] <@[twisti]> baffoom ?
[4:19:15:30] <@LumberJane> <<lol back>>
[4:19:15:31] <@Rockstar> Bathroom
[4:19:15:31] <@Rockstar> :p
[4:19:15:33] <@Crowbarman> <<it's from anne, which I haven't seen in like 15 years but I still remember that scene>>
[4:19:15:34] <@[twisti]> ok
[4:19:15:34] <@Crowbarman> alright, so we go collect the "darts", and we have to wait till tomorrow for the cloaks?
[4:19:15:34] <@[twisti]> you go pick up your darts
[4:19:15:34] <@[twisti]> write them down LJ or theyll be gone tomorrow
[4:19:15:34] <@LumberJane> okay
[4:19:15:34] <@[twisti]> and yes, youll have to wait until tomorrow to get the cloak
[4:19:15:34] <@LumberJane> I have 16
[4:19:15:35] <@Crowbarman> ok, we won't be able to make the tower and back before dark right?
[4:19:15:35] <@[twisti]> which tower
[4:19:15:36] <@Crowbarman> the one infested with goblins
[4:19:15:36] <@[twisti]> you might just make it
[4:19:15:36] <@[twisti]> actually no
[4:19:15:36] <@[twisti]> its afternoon, you cant make it
[4:19:15:36] <@[twisti]> also, you are all still rather beaten up
[4:19:15:36] <@Crowbarman> ok, lets go check out that inn
[4:19:15:36] <@Crowbarman> I only have 2 wounds
[4:19:15:37] <@Crowbarman> 8 wounds left, 2 down
[4:19:15:37] <@[twisti]> well, spyderman looks pretty broken up
[4:19:15:37] <@[twisti]> hes at 6 out of 12
[4:19:15:37] <@LumberJane> are we? how'd that happen?
[4:19:15:37] <@LumberJane> I have myself marked down at 9
[4:19:15:38] <@[twisti]> well, you took some test in a cave, then you got attacked by an invisible knight
[4:19:15:38] <@[twisti]> yeah yeah ok only spyder is still hurt
[4:19:15:38] <@Crowbarman> and then another one after that
[4:19:15:38] <@[twisti]> but youre all bandage covered
[4:19:15:38] <@LumberJane> he never actually hit me
[4:19:15:38] <@[twisti]> ill make sure that next time he does
[4:19:15:38] <@Crowbarman> anyway, lets go check out the sleeping bull
[4:19:15:39] <@[twisti]> alright
[4:19:15:39] <@Crowbarman> oh wait
[4:19:15:39] <@[twisti]> ?
[4:19:15:39] <@Crowbarman> is there any chance of getting a tent at the general store?
[4:19:15:40] <@[twisti]> no
[4:19:15:40] <@Crowbarman> k, lets go
[4:19:15:40] <@[twisti]> you walk a bit up the serpent highway, until you come at a path leading to the right
[4:19:15:40] <@[twisti]> the path leads to both the monitorian guard tower as well as to a rather sizable inn
[4:19:15:41] <@LumberJane> <<I saved the map, then opened it in windows picture viewer for convenience.>>
[4:19:15:41] <@Crowbarman> ok, lets go in the inn
[4:19:15:41] * Joins: Davlestor
[4:19:15:41] * ChanServ sets mode: +o Davlestor
[4:19:15:41] <@[twisti]> hey dave
[4:19:15:41] <@[twisti]> that were a nice 15 minutes
[4:19:15:41] <@Davlestor> Yea,
[4:19:15:41] <@LumberJane> hi dav smile
[4:19:15:41] <@Davlestor> When I got home, I had to help my grandmother move
[4:19:15:42] <@[twisti]> alright
[4:19:15:43] <@[twisti]> you come to the inn and enter
[4:19:15:43] <@Davlestor> So, what did I miss?
[4:19:15:43] <@Crowbarman> anyway, you didn't miss much, we got trained in using bandages, got 3 wounds healed, and now we're in the inn outside the city
[4:19:15:43] <@LumberJane> and went shopping
[4:19:15:43] <@[twisti]> inside you see a fighter type looking guy, a mage looking guy, as well as an older woman and a young man serving the guests
[4:19:15:43] <@Crowbarman> dang, not a looker in the bunch
[4:19:15:43] <@Davlestor> Did I get 3 wounds healed, and stuff?
[4:19:15:43] <@Rockstar> Kill the young man
[4:19:15:44] * @Crowbarman slaps rockstar upside the head
[4:19:15:44] <@[twisti]> Rockstar: play, piss off or shut up
[4:19:15:44] <@Rockstar> fine
[4:19:15:44] <@Crowbarman> lets talk to the mage guy and see if we can find a way to moonshade
[4:19:15:44] <@[twisti]> dave: you are all healed up
[4:19:15:44] <@Crowbarman> or at least here what they know about the storms that have all but stopped effecting the story
[4:19:15:44] <@Crowbarman> hear*
[4:19:15:45] <@Davlestor> Where are we? In Monitor?
[4:19:15:45] <@LumberJane> outside it
[4:19:15:45] <@LumberJane> you need the map
[4:19:15:45] <@Crowbarman> http://crowbarman.crowbarland.name/SerpentMap.jpg
[4:19:15:46] <@Crowbarman> we're in the inn of the sleeping bull
[4:19:15:46] <@[twisti]> the mage looks at you very unhappily
[4:19:15:46] <@[twisti]> Begone from my sigh, Pikemen!
[4:19:15:46] <@Crowbarman> PIKEMEN
[4:19:15:47] <@[twisti]> I will not suffer any more wrongs at your hands, even if you throw me in your jails like poor Hawk
[4:19:15:47] <@Crowbarman> who's Hawk?
[4:19:15:48] <@[twisti]> Hawk is the captain of the Arabella. I'm afraid Flinndo was a bit distressed that he had no intentions of taking his ship out to sea during these horrible storms just to get him back to moonshade
[4:19:15:48] <@[twisti]> So he brought the "muscle" of you pikemen to "convince" the captain
[4:19:15:49] <@LumberJane> We are not pikemen
[4:19:15:49] <@[twisti]> you think i cant see the tattoo of opression you wear ?
[4:19:15:49] <@Crowbarman> that's only so we wouldn't be opressed anymore
[4:19:15:50] <@LumberJane> we didn't have much choice but to take these knights' test
[4:19:15:50] <@[twisti]> if you can't fight them, join em, eh?
[4:19:15:50] <@Crowbarman> if you can't beat them, join them
[4:19:15:50] <@[twisti]> he laughs as he says it the same time you do
[4:19:15:50] <@[twisti]> a but too loud
[4:19:15:50] <@[twisti]> you think hes probably a bit drunk
[4:19:15:50] <@LumberJane> We would like to go to Moonshade as well
[4:19:15:51] <@Crowbarman> maybe we could facilitate this Hawk's release
[4:19:15:51] <@Davlestor> (Why should we go to moonshade?)
[4:19:15:51] <@Crowbarman> <<to explore>>
[4:19:15:51] <@Crowbarman> << not much to do in monitor >>
[4:19:15:51] <@[twisti]> ah, moonshade, shining jewel of the serpent isle. that is, until you try to cross Filbercio and his council of mages
[4:19:15:51] <@LumberJane> <<because we haven't been there, and they can't possibly be worse than the knights, can they?>>
[4:19:15:52] <@Davlestor> <<okay>>
[4:19:15:53] <@LumberJane> <<it's not sleeping bull btw>>
[4:19:15:53] <@LumberJane> <<I'm in the process of translating the runes...>>
[4:19:15:53] <@LumberJane> <<I'll let ya know when I finish it
[4:19:15:53] <@LumberJane> >>
[4:19:15:54] <@[twisti]> theres some special runes that mean like "th" or "ee"
[4:19:15:54] <@Crowbarman> << "s""l""ee""p""i""ng">>
[4:19:15:55] <@[twisti]> the mage looks at you and you can hear crickets
[4:19:15:55] <@Davlestor> Anything special you can tell us about Filbercio?
[4:19:15:55] <@[twisti]> Filbercio is a presumtious maggot that calls himself the MageLord of Moonshade
[4:19:15:56] <@[twisti]> I doubt that he could light a candle magically
[4:19:15:56] <@LumberJane> <<well, I figured out monitor, fawn, and moonshade as well as test (was it called knight test or something else?)>>
[4:19:15:56] <@[twisti]> But he does have the backing of the council and the mountains of freedom to support his claim
[4:19:15:56] <@Crowbarman> << knights test>>
[4:19:15:56] <@[twisti]> The one saving grace of Moonshade is that Filbercio spends all his time chasing skirts
[4:19:15:56] <@LumberJane> <<anyway, according to the 15 letters I have so far, I have _ESL__I_ for that "sleeping" word>>
[4:19:15:57] <@Davlestor> skirts eh?
[4:19:15:57] <@[twisti]> how about we translates runes another time
[4:19:15:57] <@Davlestor> That's why we have Cassa
[4:19:15:57] <@[twisti]> looks like a hairy little boy to me
[4:19:15:57] <@Crowbarman> << SL__I_ >>
[4:19:15:58] <@[twisti]> <@[twisti]> how about we translates runes another time
[4:19:15:58] <@Crowbarman> << I put that in before reading that>>
[4:19:15:58] <@Davlestor> Do you know where Hawk is?
[4:19:15:58] <@[twisti]> yes, he is locked up in your pikemens tower, you tyrants
[4:19:15:59] <@Crowbarman> which tower, and again, we're not pikemen
[4:19:15:59] <@[twisti]> the one right outside
[4:19:15:59] <@Crowbarman> I like to think of us as "knights in name only"
[4:19:15:59] <@[twisti]> << to LJ >> is your boy a little slow ?
[4:19:15:59] <@LumberJane> She's a girl actually, she really likes shinies
[4:19:16:00] <@Crowbarman> smile
[4:19:16:00] <@[twisti]> doesnt look like one, tyrant
[4:19:16:00] <@LumberJane> tyrant?
[4:19:16:00] <@Davlestor> Alright
[4:19:16:00] <@[twisti]> thats what you pikemen are!
[4:19:16:00] <@Davlestor> Do you know anything specific about this tower?
[4:19:16:00] <@[twisti]> its your bloody tower!
[4:19:16:00] <@Davlestor> Amount of men, secret passageways
[4:19:16:00] <@LumberJane> We are NOT pikemen!
[4:19:16:01] <@Crowbarman> alright, lets leave the mean "genius" to his booze
[4:19:16:01] <@[twisti]> you have the tattoos, you carry swords and armor, looks like pikemen to me
[4:19:16:01] * @Crowbarman shows him her sling
[4:19:16:01] <@LumberJane> genius, hah, my magic is probably better
[4:19:16:01] <@Davlestor> <I think we're done here we this guy?>
[4:19:16:01] <@[twisti]> thats a nice little sling you have there, little boy << he pats your head >>
[4:19:16:01] <@Crowbarman> yes, lets go see if that burly guy has a side quest for us
[4:19:16:02] <@Davlestor> Thank you for your time, mage.
[4:19:16:02] <@[twisti]> yes yes
[4:19:16:02] <@[twisti]> MORE ALE
[4:19:16:03] <@Crowbarman> anyway, lets go to the other patron type guy
[4:19:16:03] <@Davlestor> For what?
[4:19:16:03] <@Davlestor> a side quest?
[4:19:16:04] <@Crowbarman> for a side quest, we're just killing time until our banquet
[4:19:16:04] <@Davlestor> ah
[4:19:16:04] <@Davlestor> That's right
[4:19:16:04] <@Davlestor> twisti, do is there a purse of some sort on the drunken mage?
[4:19:16:04] <@Crowbarman> so, does the fighter type guy have a face tatoo?
[4:19:16:04] <@Crowbarman> lol
[4:19:16:05] <@[twisti]> Davlestor: none that you can see
[4:19:16:05] <@Crowbarman> it's invisible
[4:19:16:05] <@Davlestor> Hmm...so i guess I should grope him until I find one...
[4:19:16:05] <@Davlestor> How else would he pay for his drink...
[4:19:16:05] <@[twisti]> the fighter guy does have a face tattoo
[4:19:16:05] <@[twisti]> same one as you, actually
[4:19:16:05] <@Crowbarman> hi there, do you happen to work in the tower?
[4:19:16:05] <@[twisti]> diamond on the cheek
[4:19:16:06] <@[twisti]> welcome to the sleeping bull, brother!
[4:19:16:06] <@[twisti]> i am argus, and i am the inn keeper of this fine inn
[4:19:16:06] <@Crowbarman> << told ya >>
[4:19:16:06] <@Crowbarman> oh
[4:19:16:06] <@[twisti]> if i can be of service to you, just let me know what you need
[4:19:16:06] <@Crowbarman> what can you tell us about that hawk fellow
[4:19:16:06] <@[twisti]> ah, i believe he was arrested for drunken brawling
[4:19:16:07] <@[twisti]> i was not here at the time so i cant be certain
[4:19:16:07] <@[twisti]> you should talk to flindo, who is the one who called the guards
[4:19:16:07] <@Crowbarman> << there are 3 people working for 1 patron? >>
[4:19:16:07] <@Crowbarman> where's this flindo?
[4:19:16:07] <@[twisti]> << he motions to a darker corner in which you now notice another man sitting >>
[4:19:16:07] <@Crowbarman> ah, thank you
[4:19:16:07] <@Crowbarman> I go talk to flindo
[4:19:16:08] <@[twisti]> << no, the woman is in the kitchen, the buy is serving, and argus is sitting at a table like a guest >>
[4:19:16:08] <@[twisti]> Flindo is a rather heavy (but not obese) man with long hair and rather fancy clothing
[4:19:16:08] <@[twisti]> So, are you another victim of that coward Hawks fear of storms ?
[4:19:16:09] <@Crowbarman> pardon?
[4:19:16:09] <@[twisti]> Or are you here to investigate the curious disappearance of Devra's good husband ?
[4:19:16:09] <@Crowbarman> actually, we're here to kill time before our banquet, I figured we could try to do a few side quests in the mean time
[4:19:16:10] <@Crowbarman> perhaps we could start with hawk, I heard you were the one to call the guards on him?
[4:19:16:11] <@[twisti]> can please stop with the sidequest shit ?
[4:19:16:11] <@[twisti]> or ill start calling npcs "npc 001"
[4:19:16:11] <@Crowbarman> would you prefer side jobs?
[4:19:16:11] * Joins: spyderman
[4:19:16:11] * ChanServ sets mode: +o spyderman
[4:19:16:11] <@LumberJane> hi ty
[4:19:16:11] <@spyderman> Hey
[4:19:16:11] <@Crowbarman> you're late
[4:19:16:12] <@spyderman> Sorry im late
[4:19:16:12] <@LumberJane> very late
[4:19:16:12] <@spyderman> Errands for parents
[4:19:16:12] <@Davlestor> <<SEE!!!>>
[4:19:16:12] <@Crowbarman> in fact we're probably going to stop in 48 minutes
[4:19:16:12] <@[twisti]> Now, I'm asking you, what kind of captain would strand me and poor, dumb Kane, PAYING CUSTOMERS, mind you, here in this backwater inn because of some storm?
[4:19:16:12] <@[twisti]> So I went to the Pikemen ...
[4:19:16:13] <@Crowbarman> so, you're a "mage" too?
[4:19:16:13] <@[twisti]> Hahaha, no, I am but a merchant. I have a lot of influence though, here and in the mage city of Moonshade. I could probably even introduce you to some of the mages and maybe even get you an audience with the MageLord
[4:19:16:14] <@[twisti]> if only we werent stranded here, of course
[4:19:16:14] <@Crowbarman> hmm, so the only thing this hawk guy was arrested for was refusal of service?
[4:19:16:16] <@[twisti]> I thought perhaps they could persuade Hawk to abandon his ploy to pressure more money out of us and take us to Moonshade
[4:19:16:16] <@[twisti]> I did not expect them to waylay Hawk and let him rot in some jail cell
[4:19:16:17] <@Crowbarman> well, we'll look into it, perhaps we can negotiate his release
[4:19:16:17] <@Davlestor> So you want Hawk out?
[4:19:16:17] <@Crowbarman> who's this Devra person you mentioned earlier?
[4:19:16:17] <@[twisti]> Of course I do, as I have to go to Moonshade, and he is the only captain
[4:19:16:18] <@[twisti]> Ah, poor Devra, she is the cook of this inn, and her husband is the brother of the host, Argus
[4:19:16:18] <@[twisti]> Some days ago, she was besides herself with worry, because Angus, her husband, had disappeared
[4:19:16:19] <@Crowbarman> let me guess, he was struck by lightning and replaced with a frog
[4:19:16:19] <@[twisti]> Poor woman, first Theran and now her husband
[4:19:16:19] <@Crowbarman> theran?
[4:19:16:20] <@[twisti]> Theron was a worker here. Devra took him in and gave him work, and a place to stay. Poor chap wasn't too bright. Anyways, he was caught in one of these storms and hasn't been seen since
[4:19:16:21] <@spyderman> Has anyone came back from those storms?
[4:19:16:21] <@Crowbarman> and her husband was lost in a similar way? or was his disappearance more of the natural type
[4:19:16:22] <@[twisti]> I don't think so. While the storms never seem to completely go away anymore, it was a clam day when he didn't return from his morning rounds
[4:19:16:22] <@Crowbarman> where do his rounds usually take him?
[4:19:16:23] <@[twisti]> just around the inn, the stables, the guest buildings, the fences surrounding the inn
[4:19:16:23] <@[twisti]> im afraid i dont know all the details
[4:19:16:23] <@Crowbarman> who would?
[4:19:16:24] <@[twisti]> maybe devra, or his brother argus
[4:19:16:24] <@LumberJane> <<wonder how many of the audience fell asleep at our riveting rp... they came on the wrong day. last week was exciting>>
[4:19:16:25] <@Crowbarman> << I think every week is pretty airy because of the delay involved in typing things out >>
[4:19:16:25] <@Crowbarman> << I was actually going to suggest we try to get something for audio chat for next week >>
[4:19:16:26] <@[twisti]> pointless, as i speak horrible english
[4:19:16:27] <@Crowbarman> alright, lets talk to argus, he's the one at the bar?
[4:19:16:27] <@[twisti]> yes
[4:19:16:28] <@[twisti]> welcome back!
[4:19:16:28] <@Crowbarman> ?
[4:19:16:28] <@[twisti]> ?
[4:19:16:29] <@Crowbarman> << didn't we talk to the other guy before? >>
[4:19:16:29] <@[twisti]> you did, thats why he said "welcome back"
[4:19:16:29] <@[twisti]> [2008/04/19 22:06:45] <@[twisti]> welcome to the sleeping bull, brother!
[4:19:16:29] <@[twisti]> [2008/04/19 22:06:56] <@[twisti]> i am argus, and i am the inn keeper of this fine inn
[4:19:16:29] <@[twisti]> [2008/04/19 22:28:04] <@Crowbarman> alright, lets talk to argus, he's the one at the bar?
[4:19:16:29] <@Crowbarman> << I mean I thought this guy was the one we HAVEN'T talk to yet >>
[4:19:16:30] <@[twisti]> youve talked to everyone but the mom and the boy serving drinks
[4:19:16:30] <@Crowbarman> << oh, ok >>
[4:19:16:30] <@LumberJane> let's have a word with that boy?
[4:19:16:30] <@[twisti]> clearly, neither of them is the moms husbands brother
[4:19:16:30] <@Davlestor> Do we have enough time to plan a daring escape for Hawk?
[4:19:16:30] <@Davlestor> before the banquet?
[4:19:16:31] <@LumberJane> why don't we just ask to have him released? We are knights now, aren't we?
[4:19:16:31] <@LumberJane> everyone seems happy that we "joined" them
[4:19:16:31] <@Crowbarman> yea, he was arrested because he refused to go out during the storm
[4:19:16:31] <@Crowbarman> except that mage guy
[4:19:16:31] <@Davlestor> oh...
[4:19:16:32] <@Davlestor> Thats what I meant by 'daring escape'
[4:19:16:32] <@Crowbarman> anyway, argus, is it? I was wondering if you could tell us the path your brother took on his "rounds", before he disappeared
[4:19:16:33] <@[twisti]> im afraid i dont know his exact path, but i know he inspected the whole fence every morning, as well as the stables and all the guest rooms
[4:19:16:34] <@Crowbarman> ok, well, why don't we quickly check those out, see if we can find anything suspisious then head over to the tower
[4:19:16:34] <@spyderman> sounds good to me
[4:19:16:34] <@Davlestor> alright
[4:19:16:35] <@Crowbarman> << alright, checking on this, while we were shopping, spyderman went back for the swords, right? who has what and what can we sell later? >>
[4:19:16:36] <@[twisti]> he went back for the swords
[4:19:16:37] <@Davlestor> <<and did I get anything>>?
[4:19:16:37] <@[twisti]> and you can not find anything out of the ordinary
[4:19:16:37] <@Crowbarman> << did you need anything >>
[4:19:16:37] <@[twisti]> it is getting dark though
[4:19:16:37] <@Crowbarman> hmm, lets head to the tower anyway, I think we can find our way to the cave in the dark by now
[4:19:16:38] <@LumberJane> I can probably make us a light if necessary
[4:19:16:38] <@[twisti]> theres lots of pikement there
[4:19:16:38] <@Crowbarman> *gulp* wouldn't it be easier to make a light for us?
[4:19:16:38] <@Davlestor> <<I would like a bow
[4:19:16:38] <@Davlestor> >>
[4:19:16:39] <@LumberJane> That is what I said
[4:19:16:39] <@[twisti]> i get it, its funny
[4:19:16:39] <@Crowbarman> << if you wait a little more, you might get one that auto reloads >>
[4:19:16:40] <@Davlestor> ...a gun?
[4:19:16:40] <@Crowbarman> << lets worry about that tomorrow, you weren't here while we were shopping and you'll probably need a bow, a quiver, and arrows anyway >>
[4:19:16:40] <@Davlestor> <<okay>>
[4:19:16:40] <@Crowbarman> alright, does there seem to be any person in charge?
[4:19:16:40] <@Davlestor> But I think we should wait to 'rescue' Hawk until after the banquet
[4:19:16:41] <@LumberJane> why?
[4:19:16:41] <@spyderman> Couldn't we have a way to break him out during the banquet?
[4:19:16:41] <@Crowbarman> we're not here to rescue him, merely here to see if tendering his release would be quick
[4:19:16:41] <@[twisti]> you better not be trying to break him out, or youll land in the cell right next to him
[4:19:16:41] <@Crowbarman> yea
[4:19:16:42] <@[twisti]> the pikemen all have their weapons ready now
[4:19:16:42] <@[twisti]> and look at you suspiciously
[4:19:16:42] <@Crowbarman> there's no need to break him out
[4:19:16:42] <@[twisti]> no, a pikeman said that to you
[4:19:16:42] <@Crowbarman> um, hi there
[4:19:16:42] <@Crowbarman> we're not trying to break anyone out, don't mind him
[4:19:16:42] <@[twisti]> you better not be
[4:19:16:42] <@Crowbarman> he's always insisting on doing things the hardest way possible
[4:19:16:43] <@Crowbarman> he was the one against taking the test, and it was such a piece of cake
[4:19:16:43] <@Crowbarman> are you all coming to our banquet?
[4:19:16:43] <@[twisti]> the ones of us not on duty will be there, of course
[4:19:16:44] <@Crowbarman> ah, good, good
[4:19:16:44] <@Crowbarman> no, we're here to see about the legal release of this hawk fellow
[4:19:16:44] <@Crowbarman> we were under the impression he was arrested for refusing to take a few people back to moonshadow
[4:19:16:44] <@[twisti]> you want to pay his fine ?
[4:19:16:45] <@Crowbarman> um, how much would that be?
[4:19:16:45] <@[twisti]> 100 monetari (about 300 gold coins)
[4:19:16:45] <@LumberJane> Couldn't we just convince the fellow to change his mind?
[4:19:16:45] <@Crowbarman> um, ok then, no way we could persuade you to lower that any?
[4:19:16:45] <@Davlestor> Under whose consent was he sent here?
[4:19:16:46] <@[twisti]> absolutely not
[4:19:16:46] <@Crowbarman> perhaps for a tip on that mysterious cave, that's supposed to be filled with gold
[4:19:16:46] <@[twisti]> we are the guards, and it is our duty to deal with criminals
[4:19:16:46] <@[twisti]> we are no fools, young girl
[4:19:16:46] <@Crowbarman> ok, fair enough, we'll think on it and return when we can afford it
[4:19:16:46] <@[twisti]> we take cold, hard money
[4:19:16:47] <@Crowbarman> alright, lets head back to town, if the weapon store is still open we'll go in for a bow, otherwise we'll head for the cave
[4:19:16:47] <@Crowbarman> << are we stopping at 5 again? >>
[4:19:16:47] <@LumberJane> which cave?
[4:19:16:47] <@[twisti]> i dont know when that is
[4:19:16:47] <@Crowbarman> the one we usually sleep in
[4:19:16:47] <@Davlestor> 11 for you
[4:19:16:48] <@[twisti]> id suggest so
[4:19:16:48] <@LumberJane> oh right
[4:19:16:48] <@Crowbarman> << in 13 minutes >>
[4:19:16:48] <@Crowbarman> 12*
[4:19:16:48] <@[twisti]> since we are sort of at an end anyways
[16:48] <@Crowbarman> didn't get much done today, but wasn't much we could do
[16:49] <@LumberJane> I suddenly don't feel well
[16:49] <@[twisti]> yeah, i suppose
[16:49] <@Davlestor> To the weapon store!
[16:49] <@[twisti]> thats the problem with exploring, theres always a lot of stumbling around
[16:50] <@[twisti]> in the weapons store, they have a bow for 35 gold (quivver included) and arrows for 10 per 3 gold
[16:50] <@Davlestor> um...how much do we have?
[16:51] <@[twisti]> 76
[16:51] <@Crowbarman> further proof that not a lot happened, it all fits on one post
[16:54] <@[twisti]> sad
[16:54] <@Crowbarman> alright, seeing as how everyone else seems to have "stumbled upon" their chosen weapons (or are a mage and use none), I don't see why we can't spend 41 gold for yours
[16:54] <@[twisti]> well we did spend a lot of time on dumb and dumber here, and then a lot of time looking around for clues
[16:54] <@Crowbarman> so bow, quiver, 20 arrows, don't let em go to waste
[16:55] <@Davlestor> smile
[16:55] <@Davlestor> I can reuse the arrows though right?
[16:55] <@Rockstar> ..
[16:55] <@[twisti]> i suppose we can roll for that, depending on what kind of armor they wore
[16:55] <@Crowbarman> I don't know where our shinies go, a dime here, 15 gold there
