Didn't you know, Rodric says haughtily. Every steel weapon from Karaz-a karak comes with a free keyring and a bottle of dwarfen ale. My idea, by the way, as Mercs cashier and shieldbearer he proudly adds. Its a completely new sales technique I want to try out.

So beer we have, but no money, he says looking greedely up on wolfs stack of goldcoins.

How about a bet, Wolfie? I figure I can handle more drinks than you.

But what if I could give you a head start? Let's say four bottles? Last man standing wins. OK?

Rodric awakes from under the table. Where did everyone go, he thinks. Then he hears some music from the street and stumbles out to listen.

Minka finally gets bored and starts singing to herself while swaying from side to side

'I've got a lovely bunch of coconuts ...'

Realising that the music does not come from outside, but inside his head, he picks up his guitar and tries to follow Minkas experimental new ages singing.

Minka produces a set of bongo drums and wraps an Indian War bandana thing around her head - complete with feathers.  Smudging war paint on har face, she leads the others in a crazed war dance.

Decides to sit down, while he takes a bottle of ale out of his backpack, and watch the show.

Rodric, encouraged by the audience, starts undressing his tunic and throws it sensually against the spot where Tant sits.

Thant decides this is a good time as any to try out his new bow, and takes aim at Rodric

Seeing Thants new bow and thants dark eyes, Rodric hastily covers his pale body and runs crying into Mercs sleeping chamber. Seconds later he comes out dressed and seems to have gotten back some of his wits. In his hand he has a green bottle with some slow-moving liquid in it. Try a sip of this my friend, he says and offers the bottle to Thant.

*There is a large crashing sound outside the shoppe, as if someone was just pushed through a large stack of pots and pans and then fallen down three flights of stairs.  Horses neigh, as if startled by something. The door bursts open suddenly and noisily.  Ryath stands in the doorway, looking frazzled, and out of breath.  She steps in deliberately, not noticing the other patrons.  She walks slowly to the counter.*

"Shopkeep...I need a sword....not just any sword, either.  I need a SWORD.   Something insanely powerful, naturally, but light enough for a woman.  There's an issue of weapon inequality in the House of Wit n' Wisdom, you see.  Custom make it, if you must, or if you have anything ancient, lengendary or anything...I don't know... particularly smite-y...MONEY IS NO OBJECT! NO. OBJECT."

*Ryath stares a moment, to make sure the point is taken.  Then she sits down on a nearby chair, clasps her hands tightly in her lap and looks agitated.  She stares straight ahead, grimacing,  as if in some sort of stress induced psychosis.  Every now and then she mumbles incoherently to herself*

Ultimate Ed wanders in, notices the long line of patrons at the counter, waiting for service.

Looks around for signs of the proprietor, finds none.  

Heads into the armor section of the shop in search of a new set of asbestos lined mail for the side quest he's been suckered into to retrieve an egg from the nearby dragon's lair.

Merc shakes his head vigourously and looks at his many customers:"Where do you all come from?.
Then he remembers his vision and the one who came right after it.
"Well never mind and i'm sorry tobe the party pooper but we'll have to prepare for war,muster everyone in the Hall who can hold a sword, cause by the Gods i have a story to tell.


O.O.C: Sorry for my long absence,The redecoration of my house took al of my spare time,it's good to be back

“War?” Minka asks, her eyes lighting up as she sits up straighter.  “Did you say war??  As in... WAR!?”  Without waiting another moment, she stops her strange antics and turns serious.  With practiced skill, she affixes her array of weapons, starting with her twin silver crossbows, snake sword, throwing knives, twin daggers and then slips her poisoned claw gauntlet onto her left hand.

“Got room for a sadistic, homicidal female assassin?” she asked with a deadly smile, “Just think, if I kill enough people and loot enough, I should be able to raise enough funds to reopen my lair.  Wow, look at that, earning money the honest way... well, remotely honest way... well, not at all really... you know what I mean!”

"Ah, everyone who can hold  sword, you say?  Well, I can do better than that"

Ed pulls a mighty two-handed sword from the scabbard at his waist and holds it aloft.  The heavy blade shines brightly, even in the candle light of the shop.  It's mass sufficient to cleave a head from the thickest neck, and it edge sharp enough to make the cut sweetly clean.  The handle could almost be called three handed.  It is a custom design to provide perfect balance.  The pommel and end hold some of the largest sapphires known, taken from a mine in Ed's ancestral homelands.

"But wait, there's more!"

Ed dashes out the door and returns a moment later, this time with his original two-hander in one hand, and it's magnificent twin in the other.

"Not many who can wield the two-handed broadsword with a single hand.  I command the strength and dexterity two bring two into battle, when you have a massive hord or orcs or goblins or trolls that need to be haqued through."

"So, Merc, for now, my egg quest shall thankfully be put on hold.  Who are we off to conquer?"

Darkon steps out of the fibers of existence and becomes visible. "Question is not who are we going to conquer, question is who and what is coming? and will they be a danger for the Gardens? And please put that toothpick away before you poke out an eye or hurt yourself." Darkon crosses his arms and awaits Merc answer.
