PostSubject: Linebeck Trading   Sun Jun 28, 2015 7:56 pm

First topic message reminder :

This seaside shop sees a fair amount of traffic from adventurers, sailors, and antique collectors alike. The ground floor boasts a variety of eye-catching treasures to draw in potential customers. Some scattered gold coins sit on his counter along with a bunch of treasure maps. Normally it wouldn't be such a great idea to leave such treasures out there on display, but everyone in town understands the price of theft and not many are willing to risk it. The owner is quite confident that the law will protect him, so he's pretty lax and presents a relaxed and casual environment for his customers.

The second floor is Linebeck's living space. Naturally, no customers are allowed here. It sports all the standard amenities including a kitchen, bathroom, etc. Recently a third floor was built, and Linebeck moved his sleeping area up there. The second floor bedroom has been converted into a room where Linebeck keeps his favorite treasures, the ones he has no plans to sell. Most of his merchandise is kept in the basement. Again, no customers allowed in the basement. Though he does keep some hired help that are permitted access.



Services: Find a great treasure while out adventuring but have no idea what to actually do with it? Linebeck Trading is here to help! Linebeck will gladly appraise your treasure and exchange it for the appropriate amount of money. Have nothing to sell? Not a problem! Linebeck will happily sell you a treasure map at a discount along with an agreement that anything you find, you bring to Linebeck for appraisal and exchange. He's also willing to part with any of the treasures he has on display, for the right price of course.

Business Hours: Linebeck Trading is open on Monday - Friday between the hours of 8AM - 5PM. On Saturday and Sunday, he travels to Friezant with his most valuable treasures to auction them off to the wealthy locals.

Leticia reaches into her bag and sets a golden pumpkin about half the size of a normal pumpkin on the counter. It's hollow, but the inside is coated with ceramic to hold the shape.

"Woah, dat looks expensive." The errand boy comments as he continues to sweep. "Well well, what do we have here... Linebeck closely examines it. "It appears hollow, but the shape holds well...pure gold even! Writer's above, I daresay this must be worth around 8000G!" The errand boy's jaw drops. "Holy crap, dat's a lot a money..."

Leticia's jaw drops too.

"I never expected it to be worth THAT much! I'm so lucky I didn't break it on my way into town!"

"It's probably worth even more if I inspect the various intricacies of the carving. And in certain collector's circles? Yep, this will fetch you a nice price! (And I can turn this around for a big profit later down the road! Perfect!) Well done finding this little beauty, kid. How does 8000G weighing down your pockets sound?"

A gleam enters her eyes. "I don't know, that sounds like a bit too heavy for a small person like me. I'd better buy something else before I leave to lighten the load. What do you have that's 2000 G or less?"

Linebeck smiles and gestures around his shop. "Take a look around, my little money maker. See anything you like, bring it the the counter and we'll work out a deal."

Leticia eventually finds a nice - and within-budget - pendant, which doubles as a compass.

It looks like this:

"No no, thank you for the business! If you're ever in town again, drop on in for a visit. You might find more treasures to catch your eye. Or if you're down on your luck again, I'm sure we can come to another deal on a treasure map. Speaking of maps, I hope you find the train station okay."

"Oh, that's right! I forgot about the train station! I have to hurry, or I'll miss my train. Thank you so much, and I'll make sure to pay you a visit next time I'm in Monteport!"

After finally arriving in Monteport two hours ago, Stella found herself wandering the market district, silently hoping she might find something that she can justify buying. She had 'indulged' herself with 30-some gold sometime past, and the combination of desire to spend it and desire to return to her monkish virtue fueled her search.
Eventually, she happened across a two-story shop along the shore, with a few travelers going in and out. From outside, she glimpsed a few trinkets through the open doors, and with a small spark of interest in her, she hesitantly entered, looking around.

"Aha, welcome traveler!" Linebeck shouts from the counter, hands at his hips and with a smile on his face. "Feel free to browse. Or if you're looking for something in particular, step up to the counter. I'm sure I can find something for ya."

Stella jumps in shock, tipping over a small vase nearby with her tail. Recovering quickly once she notices, she frantically moves to catch it, setting it back on its table after her hustle with a small huff. She looks at Linebeck with an embarrassed expression, slowly backing off from the treasure. "I wasn't really looking for anything particular," She tells him, "But, uh, maybe some plain old necklaces? Chokers, maybe?"
Remembering his words about particulars, she approaches the counter, taking care not to stray near any of the treasures on the floor.

"Hey, try to be careful! Most of this stuff isn't easily replaced!" Linebeck wipes some sweat from his brow after watching the incident and calms down when Stella catches the vase. "Right then, so it's necklaces you want? You'd be in luck then, I have plenty of those! I have simple silver necklaces, extravagant bejeweled necklaces, and many more! Feel free to browse that particular section of the store. If you find something you like, bring it back here and we'll talk price."

Stella looks over towards the aforementioned section, and the path to it. "Uh... Alright. I'll be right back in a moment, then."
She slowly makes her way over towards the display, poring over until she finds something she might reasonably be able to afford: A simple silver choker, mostly unadorned.
She brings it back over, showing it to Linebeck. "How much does it cost?"

"Ah, such a simple thing. A charming little choker. It's relatively inexpensive. A mere 250G.

It slips from her hand onto the counter as her face takes on a stunned look. "O-oh."

"Ah, that is a problem. Unfortunately I cannot simply part with these things for free, you understand. I am a businessman after all. But perhaps I can help you find something within your price range. How much were you looking to spend? I'm not after your entire life savings mind you, I have standards."

"Thirty? Hmm.....I believe my cheapest item here in the store is worth exactly that amount. A small silver ring. I have a few of them lying around actually. Not particularly glamorous, but they're cheap, and like all treasures, they have a certain charm to them."
