    I have been blind since birth. However, that all changed yesterday! I was visited by a man who cured me!
    Now I am going to see the world! Travel to capital! Become famous! Rich! Or a wizard!
    I have saved up 200 piens, which should be enough for a while.
    All I need is a plan...

    We don't know how we became blind in the first place. It was probably genetic.

    Also what's the relative value of a pien? How does it correspond to IRL money? Like, how many whores can it buy?

    I was born blind. I don't know why. But it's good I was cured! Too bad I didn't get a chance to thank him.

    Well, pien is uh. I guess day's meal is about 8 pien. Whores- I don't know.

    Lets take the piens, spend it on the best courtesan we can find for as long as the money lasts, and THEN we set out for adventure!

    It's not like adventuring takes some sort of start-up cost, we can put the money to good use, and then set out! Allot of people start out adventuring penniless, without the benefit that they got some well-spent and sweet lovin' beforehand.

    Plus we've been blind for our life, why not take in some lovely sights for starters?

    We should just find a courtesan who looks like she might be a useful adventurer and hire her, then go adventuring with her. Two birds with one stone.

    Alternatively, just spend 50-100, provided the company is still nice, and then the rest on supplies.

    I am an orphan. 15 years old. I sucks. I live with other kids with similar troubles. We spend large amount of day begging for pien. I have saved money for 8 years already. They won't miss me.

    But yes, let's get me some goggles, maybe a pointy hat! I hear that there are no brothels in the town. Supposedly some very strict religious group burned them away anyway.

    He just told me to get inside. Blah.
    There are two other passengers. One is like the merchants, other one is human.

    It is really silent.
    I guess the robed guy with pointy hat is asleep. I can hear him snoring.

    Anyway rock and roll, we got ourselves some good starting gear, a steady trip to the capitol, 100 pien for a lovely courtesan, and to top it all off we have 15 years worth of living blind and developing senses, only now we can see!

    let's try to talk to our fellow travelers and learn who they are. Perhaps they might be adventurers, and the snoring one might be a wizard.

    On second thought, leave the dozing one alone. Never pays to make a wizard angry AND sleep-deprived.

    The day was boring. Nothing special happened at all.
    I did talk with the other passengers tho. The sleepy one was a mage, journeying to Capital to make a report. The other human passenger is a blacksmith visiting cousins. I thought about asking about sharpening the blade, but decided not to. Caravan is mostly those long-eared folk.

    And I learned something about races. There are six major races: Human, Caowe ( merchants I have been seing ), Satyr ( horned goat-things ), Elfs, Dwarves, and um, Ongigil ( bird people ). That's about it.

    I am now on night watch with one of the long-eared folk ( I think it is the same one who was not impressed by my amazing muscles ). It has been peaceful, but there's been quite bit of annoying rustling going on for a while now.

    Try to see if you can pick-up rocks first and chuck it in the direction of the rustlings.

    When morning comes, try looking for a knife. It'll let you make pointy sticks to start skewing food with over an open flame. You can carve stuff with it that you can sell. You'll also have a back-up weapon if ever you can't reach your sword. And once you get someone into your party, you have a handy weapon to equip them with.

    If not a knife, you could instead get a wood-cutter's axe and start working as a lumberjack. Sell the firewood to the merchants you're travelling with, or to the market once you reach the city.

    Also, don't dual-wield. Your penalties will make you feel silly.

    After yesterday's screwup, I asked him about magic. He did not tell much. He just told me that there are many basic schools of magic, about wizard academy and about dangers yadda yadda.
    The basic school are uh, general magic, elemental magic ( which is divided to more schools ), ,conjuring, summoning, warping and enchanting and uh. That's about it. He might have left out a few.

    Then he just told me to bug off. The horse-incident had costed him 120 pien.

    We look like a wonderfully psychotic Snufkin.

    We should wander about town and find a basic school of magic. Or well... we're obviously meant for greatness since we just came out of our 15 years of blindness, so why not go straight to the academy and badger them for an opening? If nothing else, at least a janitor's or a kitchen helper's job would be nice to keep us clothed, fed and housed, and we could use our access to the place to sneak a few peeks in some magic booksies.

    Anyway, let's find the wizard's academy.
