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.

She goes to grab it.
"So, uh."
She awkwardly wiggles it a bit. "What's the, uh... Best way..?"

"Oh. I haven't either really, but you just hold it by the end and use the brush to move all the dirt into one pile. Then you sweep it all into that dustpan over there and dump it in the trash."

"Oh, uh, okay."
She sets to the task, wielding the broom a tad unprofessionally. She gets the job done fine, at least. No nudged tables either.

Linebeck goes back to work, handling the needs of a customer. He looks back occasionally to see how Stella's doing. "You're doing fine, keep up the good work."

She nods absentmindedly in acknowledgement of the praise, focusing on her tasks.

Eventually the end of the day rolls around. Throughout the day Linebeck had Stella perform various tasks around the store, including going to and from the basement for various items and sweeping the floors as the dirt and snow accumulated from the foot traffic. Now the store is quieter and mostly clean. Linebeck meanwhile stands at his counter happily counting his gold with a visible gleam in his eye.

Linebeck eventually notices Stella after being distracted by his money pile. "Oh, right. Here's your share." Linebeck sets aside a stack of coins equivalent to whatever minimum wage is.

"What's wrong? Don't tell me you you suddenly want more- you're killing me here!" Linebeck has a look of shock on his face.

"Wh-what, no!" She quickly shouts, holding her hands up with a wide-eyed expression. "No, no, this is more than enough!"

"Oh, good!" Linebeck breathes a sigh of relief and goes back to his usual calm demeanor. "Sometimes I get people trying to swindle me. Usually the mercenary types. I'm glad you're not like that. Now go on, take your hard earned money. Nothing quite like the sound of clinking coins, eh?"

"O...Okay." She does so, dropping them into a pouch at her waist. The first coin doesn't make a noise, but the following coins clink against each other. Stella grimaces faintly.

Surprisingly enough, Linebeck notices. "Whats the matter now? Headache?"

"I'm not sure what you mean, but you seem uneasy. Nervous about how you did on your first day?" Linebeck places a hand on his hip and has the same confident smile he always wears.

"Wary about money?" Linebeck laughs. "Can't trust yourself not to spend it on my antiques I bet! I can't blame you. It IS an impressive treasure trove. And don't you worry about your performance, you did fine. I don't pay for shoddy work."

"Hmm..." Linebeck places a hand on his chin in thought before suddenly coming up with an idea. One can almost see the lightbulb above his head. "Alright dear crew member, here's what I can do for you. If you'll be sticking around a while to help me, I can hold onto your money for you. Just let me know when you're ready to get paid and you can have your money. If you insist, you can only take what you need for food and lodgings. I'll just need to get that in writing so I don't get in trouble for underpaying you."

"You'd... You'd do that? That sounds great." She fishes the coins out of her pockwt, setting them back on the counter.

"Once again, the sound of clinking coins...even better, the sound of clinking coins back on my counter! I think we're going to get along just fine." Linebeck happily adds the coins back to his original coin stack.
