As I recall, Darcy will need to visit the blacksmith also, assuming he gets his horse back and that the village blacksmith also serves as a farrier.

the blacksmith is going to be happy.

throwing daggers are a bit more balanced than your common dagger. so 2gold each at least mabye 3gold for those.

doing the staff up in iron is a 1gold job.

and a couple gold for the horse equipment

 Can we roll to see if we can successfully haggle? ;)

Sure you can. Standard Test too. so 2d6 5 or 6 and you drop it by 1 Gold unless it costs 1 Gold, cant haggle that. If you fail it costs the highest price plus 1 Gold.

I've been meaning to do a test roll in the chatroom anyway, so I rolled to see if the price of the daggers would be 2 gold each or 3:

Jerusha   !roll 2d6
13:11   derynibot   6, 6 == 12

NOW I get a double six.  But that's OK, I'll take them at 2 gold each.

I don't suppose the second six would knock the horseshoeing down to one gold?

LOL!  So it has to either go down or up? There's no chance of the price remaining the same?  Say, for instance, it costs 1 Gold less if you roll 5 or 6, the price remains the same if you have a normal failure roll, and the merchant gets ticked off at you and raises the price if you roll snake eyes?  (She suggests, haggling with the GM....  ;)  ;D)

Blacksmith's wife gets a new fur-lined cloak and soft, warm, good-quality wool to make the children some warmer clothes for winter and possibly even money to pay someone to sew the kids' clothes for her.

Unless the original blacksmith met a tragic end and his widow and children are the ones running the smithy nowadays, in which case the sudden income might go back into the smithy itself.  :D

I'm sure the Nunnery where the Lords and Lady are staying will be expecting a donation as well. Life of poverty and all. Money to pay the upkeep has to come from donations.

Darcy may have to settle for one throwing dagger.  I hope he doesn't end up regretting that decision.

Iirc, there was one convent in Meara where Brion stayed with Kenneth Morgan (don't recall which book), where the guest room roof leaked on them in the night and the convent got a healthy donation.   Clever women.  One of the nuns was shrewd in which room she chose to give the king.

lol  I think it is fortunate that it is not raining this night. ;)

Hay, with double 6s, Darcy should be able to to use his charisma to haggle the price down further. LOL. All that pale hair and pale eyes needs to account for something.   And yes Wash was envious until he realized how much faster his hair dried now that it is short.

P.S. Aynbeth Araxie von Horthy  born October 1121, 3rd daughter of Letald Hort of Orsal.  Her betrothal to the Duke of Corwyn was made by Dowager Duchess Richenda and Aynbeth's cousin Queen Araxie. She is a few years Kelric's senior. She is usually the sunshine of Coroth Court, Gold hair, green eyes and lavish in her display of rich colors. Her only misgivings is the time her husband spends worrying over his brother, when he should be spending that time with their many children.

Actually, Darcy is pretty good at bargaining with merchants (although he doesn't have that trait in this game).  The Quartermaster taught him a thing or two, and Darcy got lots of practice in those far northern ports.

The pale hair and eyes are a little more effective with the tavern wenches than the merchants.   ;)

Hm.  Effective with the tavern wenches.  You don't say.  Although Aliset does wonder what in the world she was thinking, trying to sneak away discreetly and unobserved in the protection of a man who could pass for a lighthouse if he needs a second job....  ;D

Or for more silvery-white hair....



Yeah.  Imma call him Lightbulb.   ;)
