- Test out ring, ask for another shop locations nearby, check for other supplies
Well, if someone had the ring for so long and only had a bizarre personal life that doesn’t seem to bad. You’re pretty sure the best option would be to just try it on and see what happens.
But as you reach for the ring the merchant slaps your wrist and grabs the ring off the counter.
Merchant - Hold it Miss Leaks, you’re gonna have to pay for that.
You - I just wanted to try it out! What’s the big deal?
Merchant - No dice. What if it gets you weird mind control powers, or makes everyone around you explode. Again, I don’t know what it does and the only person who does is a complete drunkard.
You - Hmm… Ok, how much is it?
Merchant - Well, since it could kill you… I’ll sell it for… 300 gold.
You stroke your chin. You aren’t sure how much money you have because your inventory list is on your head, but you’re pretty sure you can cover that. Before you make any rash purchases, however, you figure you can ask about other shops and supplies in town.
You - Ok… before we talk payment, could you tell me where I could get supplies for a 6 day trip? Food and junk, and the like.
Merchant - Well, there’s a General store right behind you, a Smithy to my left, but you could always hire someone from the Steelfist guild who isn’t smashed to help your travels. Though, they kind of blow, except for this one red haired lass. Up to you.
Right… So many choices, what to do first?
