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.

Hathor curtsies again, and goes to sit down with her new vase, watching her daughter work for the first time in ten years.

A tall blonde man comes into the shop, accompanied by what appears to be a very pale, rather short, silver haired being at his heels. He appears to favor his right leg and have something tucked under his arm.

Linebeck squints at the being but otherwise gives his usual greeting to the customer. "Welcome, welcome!" Feel free to look around.

He hands over the item. It appears to be a skull, made of jade. Unlike a normal skull, the forehead seems to be rather elongated. "I sense no necro-energy from this, so it is of little use to me."

"Necro energy, eh? Well that's good, I don't usually deal in magical items. Especially dangerous magics. Now let's see here..." He takes a good look at it, and almost immediately his eyes shine. "Where did you get this little beauty? This is easily worth at least 80,000! You've got a great find here! If you're still interested in selling, I'll prepare your coin for you."

"Your attic?! Well come back in Spring! Maybe you'll find something else of value if you do spring cleaning." He prepares the money and hands it off to him. "There you are, this should make you smile. A small fortune would make me smile! (Or it will when I sell this thing!)"

"Canes? Yes, I occasionally get those brought in. Antique works from skilled woodworkers long gone, a few jewel encrusted ones, and even a few with hidden blades inside. Take your pick."

Heinrich peruses them quietly, searching for one that will accommodate his six-and-a-half feet frame.

Linebeck waits patiently, content to look at his new treasure.

Heinrich looks through the canes until he finds one that is tall enough, and tests his weight on it. He seems to like it well enough, though it is rather fancy with a golden dragon clutching an onyx in its claw serving as a handle and what appears to be a dark, heavy wood as the cane body. There is a soft metallic noise from within as he brings it to the counter .

"Ah, you have excellent taste! Are you aware that this cane hides a perfectly useable sword for self defense? I don't normally stock practical weaponry, but it came with the antique. Who was I to say no to such a beauty?"

"A sword-cane? I've seen rather few of those. It is difficult to find a cane which accommodates my height without having them custom-made. Walking is painful without one."

"Yes, I sometimes get customers such as yourself complaining about the same painful issue. Whether it be the elderly or adventurers who were injured while getting the treasure they want to sell me. It's tragic, but I'm happy to accommodate. I get plenty of canes in. As for this one, overall the cost is 55,000G. The sword itself is rather expensive, and the gold dragon drives the price up even higher you see."

"Ah, you're more knowledgeable about this sort of thing than I gave you credit for. Some of my more casual customers ask me to justify the price. It's understandable, really. Not everyone can tell at a glance what something's worth like I can. As for you, just hand me the money and give me a name for the old logbook, and you'll be free to go with your new cane."

Heinrich hands over the money and then takes a fountain pen from a pocket in his suit coat. He signs "Heinrich von Welf" in neat calligraphy in an empty space in the logbook. Tucking the pen away, he nods. "Satisfactory, Master Linebeck?"
