"Yes, this is a lovely find," the assayer says, looking through his loupe at the shell, illuminated by the light of the lantern the old satyr holds aloft. "How did ye ever get it aboard?""I just... pulled it out?" You shrug, tail swishing. "Djanna and my uncle helped.""Hmm." The sharp clopping of hooves on wood fills the small hold as the assayer circles the treasure shell. "I'd have no problem selling this to a collector, or I'm sure the governor might want it for himself, but to be honest, girls, it's a fair bit of coin. Maybe a bit more'n three younguns should be carryin' around.""We'll be just fine." Djanna assures him, smiling. "We're not so y-""Girl, I can smell the new on ye." The assayer sniffs, grumbling as he removes his loupe, stuffing it in the pocket of his waistcoat. "None the less, I ain't about to tell ye what to do, but it'll take time ta get that much coin together."Emma frowns, her tails swishing slowly. She beckons Djanna over, standing up on her tip-toes and whispering something in the dragon girls ear. Djanna nods slowly before turning to you. "Hey... Nadia. What if we traded it?""Like... for food?" Your stomach growls... no! No, now is not the time..."Well, that... some travelling supplies..." Djanna shrugs. "It would let us leave sooner. Get to the Orphans without waiting, carry less weight...""Well, I'll need ta know. I can give ya a writ of credit right now if ya like." The assayer offers, pulling a leather folio from an inner pocket, along with a charcoal pencil.>Credit and shopping!>Wait for coin, see the town>Keep the shell. We can carry it!>Other
>>44252909Might wana tweet this.>Keep the shell. We can carry it!

>>44253104>ropeOh god re:snek flashbacks
I've got some unfortunate news anons....Argentorum of Re: Human and I talked recently and Re: Human is officially declared dead.
>>44253082Food, clothes, rope, backpacks, sleeping bags, iron spikes, waterskins, spices, firestarter kit, weapons and armor for the party.
>>44253082Spiders dice luck?
>>44253168Crud, any word on Kay, Lamb or Burning Sigil?
>>44253233Bird says words but always empty promises, Lizard is working under The Man!, and I think and party are lost in a wheat field somewhere.
>>44253274Last exam was yesterday, so officially done with classes. Gonna re-read all of my quest and then we'll see. I can understand your skepticism though. I am terrible at following through.But enough out of me this is Lotus's time to shine.
>>44252909"Um... I think we'd like to take the credit," you nod, tail wagging. The assayer nods and sets the lantern down, leaning down and writing something quickly onto a sheet inside the folio before setting the pencil aside and drawing a yellow stick of sealing wax from his vest. He sets the tip into the lantern's flame before pressing it to the page. He quickly presses a ring to the page before tearing out the sheet and handing it to you."There you are, girl. 600 gilder worth of credit, to be used within the city. That would be the 800 for the shell, less the 200 you agreed to pay for Malir's sake." Djanna nods as you stare at the paper in confusion. Some of these loopy-loops and scribbly bits look familiar. Some of them."Thank you, sir. And how do we-""Clerks'll be able ta help with that. They'll mark off what ye spend, an' leave ya with what's left." The assayer snaps the folio closed. "And that, as they say, 's that. I'll be headin' off now. If ya need anythin', ask a guard. They'll be able ta show ya around.""All right. Thank you, sir." Djanna steps forward, shaking the man's hand. He nods with a grunt, shaking the girl's hand, before heading up to the deck. Emma moves to your side, looking up at the sheet."Huh... so that's what money looks like now...""No, no. This is like... a promise to pay. Basically, the governor is assuring shopkeepers we can use six-hundred gilder worth of his money.""Ah..." Emma nods, ears twitching."...okay, then." You nod as well, as if you fully grasp what's going on. "Then, let's see. We should pick some things up before we set off... right?""Right. I think we have no food, and I've lost my armor. We could also use some boots, clothes suited for the local area..." She begins listing off several items, and you can feel your mind wandering."-ia? Nadia!" Djanna snaps her fingers under your nose. "Ah! W-what?" Your ears snap up."Where are we starting?">Clothes>Gear>Equipment>Food>Skip>Other

>>44253385Food it is! Writing!
>>44253385"Food.""Well, Nadia, maybe we should leave that one for last? We don't want it-""Food..." You whine, tail thumping, ears folded forward."I know you're worried about having enough for the trip, but-""Food food food food food food food FOOD!" Your tail thrashes wildly, and Djanna just sighs."All right, fine, yes... we can get the food first, calm down..." Djanna puts her hand between your ears, scratching slooooooooh, yes, that's the stuff...The three of you set out into the city, making a quick stop by a small butcher's shop to place an order. The butcher, a gigantic human, is either very accustomed to monsters or doesn't mind their presence in his shop. His prices are firm, but fair, and after some haggling on Djanna's part, you have acquired enough meat to last you the week-long journey to the Orphan's stronghold... and a freshly grilled sausage for each of you.It is, quite possibly, one of the most delicious things you've ever tasted. The skin is crispy, running with hot juice seasoned with garlic and mustard seed, sprinkled with salt and pepper. The meat is a mixture of pork and beef, along with something you don't quite recognize.You inhale yours, and begin eyeing Emma's covetously. The small fox scowls and scurries to walk beside Djanna, putting the dragon girl between herself and you, protecting what is hers.>Clothing>Gear>Equipment>Skip>Other

>>44254045Wondering why I decided to come back when it's clear I have no idea what I'm doing any more. How's by you?
>>44254091Just relaxing after finals, waiting for all the RE QMs to start having threads again. Also Quest Drone
>>44254108How do you think you did?Clothing wins! Writing. Also, friends want to drag me to Star Wars. Worth going? It would mean killing it in a few updates.

>>44254156Better off going earlier then later due to spoilers. It's like the original trilogy, but a bit heavy handed with it's references.
>>44254200I think you'll do fine, anon.
>>44253986The trio enters the small clothier's shop, a bell above the door ringing. A haggard looking woman looks up at the girls, smiling and pulling a few pins from between her lips. "Ah, customers! Come in, girls, come in! Sorry, I'm a bit busy at the moment..." She comes out from behind the counter, skittering toward the girls on eight long legs. Djanna's eyes widen, and Emma hisses before leaping behind you, grabbing hold of your tail."Oh! I'm quite sorry... didn't mean to scare you!" she pulls back quickly, frowning. She reaches up, twining a lock of her disheveled blond hair around her finger nervously. "I had heard that some people have a fear of spiders, but... ah, let me just..." She moves back behind the counter before leaning on the worn wood, blinking slowly at you and Djanna. "Sorry... is that better?""I'm sorry. I had no idea she was so-" Djanna begins as you try wagging your tail, Emma's small hands keeping it stationary."S-so many legs..." The kitsune whispers, shivering."Nonono, it's okay!" The arachne waves her hands quickly, shaking her head. As she does, her hair bounces, revealing other, smaller eyes crossing her brow. "I don't mind! W-what can I do for you?">CLOTHES!>You're a spider!>You're a monster!>OtherLast update tonight. Friends are grabbing me for the early showing. Sorry for the slow/crap thread, folks!
