The man startles, sputtering briefly and nearly falling out of his chair. He recovers quickly enough, and asks, "Customers, or just woodknockers?"
"Customers, if you have any maps." Beatrice answers.
"What kinda maps? I got a lot of maps."

"Ah, locational maps? You're in luck, I've got some good ones." He says, pulling a few out of the jar. "Now, there's the shitty mass-produced maps that only give the locations like any half-baked map would do, oooorrrr, you can get the maps that I drew, the ones with a whole bunch of markers and waypoints and lots of little tips. Like this, this right here." He points at an area marked red on some island to the south. "See all that blotch, like a drunk baldie? That means K-E-E-P O-U-T." And so he continues, going on about his own maps compared to the regular editions.
Barely able to get a word in over the man's spiel, Beatrice just looks to Isaac with a sort of bewildered expression.

Isaac mumbles under his breath. "A drunk baldie...?" He examines the map along with the man's rambles though. It did look similar geographically to ones he had looked at before, but he had never payed attention to towns at the time so her couldn't be sure if they were accurate at all.

"I can see the trepidation on your face, young man." He says, then unrolls one of the regular maps. "Go ahead and take a look. As boring and useless as they are, my maps are no different landwise than the rest. I just give a little extra help to the poor lost souls who need it."
"It's definitely more than we had to go on before."

"But what's that gunna cost us? We're scraping by as it is right now, no income to our names." It wasn't entirely true, but they really didn't have income.

"No money? Damn, really? Nothing to pay with at all?"
'Afraid not."
"How the hell did you two eat... Forget it, whatever. I can just copy this shit over, won't even take that long..."

"It wouldn't be fair otherwise."
"Seriously? You're gonna tell me that right after being all 'but we're poor'? Come on, at least keep to one act."

"Well I really meant we can't like... Pay double a normal map's price for all the extra stuff. Bet just likes to follow along with things." He shrugs. "Though, if I could pay you with some work that'd be better."

Beatrice looks askance, seeming a little embarrassed.
"Well, I wasn't gonna make you pay all that much anyways. I don't make maps for a living, I make 'em for a hobby. What I sell for a living is marbles. But if you wanna work for them, I guess what you can do is help me pack up. I'm blowing this place soon as I can now, no fun here to be had."

The man practically slaps a clear-lidded box of marbles on the table. "Marbles."

Isaac pulls his marble sack off his hip and dumps it out on the table. "Marbles." They scatter all over the place but oddly don't fall off.

The man throws a shooting cloth onto the table. "Marble games."

"How about this: Marbles for maps. If you can beat me at Ringer, map for free, and ya don't even gotta help me pack up shop."

"Hey, I can take a loss. It's marbles and we're playing on the shakiest table known to man, stuff'll happen."

And so a heated set of Ringer matches begins, until finally the victor...

"Damn, and I was close, too. Real good games, though, real good games. And for such a good set," he picks up one of his shooters, a polished aggie, and offers it to Isaac.

He shakes his head. "Playing for the maps, not the marbles."

"Well, if ya say so." He tosses the map to him.
"Thank you very much, sir." Beatrice says politely. "Though... Isaac? How much in a hurry are we, would you say?"
