Novice Market (Archive Repost)

Post by Mia »

Mia led her companions deeper into the town. The elf tossed her hood over her ears, just enough to keep people from questioning her heritage. Unlike a full-blooded dark elf, she didn't need to hide her entire face. She just looked like a woman with a good tan; and her blonde hair and green eyes didn't raise any questions.

Novice was a major stop on the road for merchants heading to and from Adan, so there were plenty of stores, inns and stands.

As the entered the market place in the middle of the town, Mia paused. "So, what first, supplies or horses?"

"I vote supplies." replied Nessa, his logic being that the former was in his price range while the latter was not, and the more time he had to think of a solution the better.

Nessa wouldn't have been surprised if the others were willing to help him. Mia took physical risk looking out for a simple farm boy and Aiyanna gave him a sword worth more money than he had ever seen in his short lifetime. Perhaps it was no large sacrifice for well traveled adventurers, but to the boy it meant a world of difference. It gave him an oportunity he may have never otherwise seen, but it also meant he had yet to prove he could stand on his own.

If he could do only one thing on his first job by himself it was getting his own horse by whatever means necessary. If Nessa was to be any kind of man, let alone any kind of warrior, he would have to pass this simple yet (for him) daunting task with no help.

"Supplies are fine with me," Aiyanna agreed.

"Alright then, how about we split up and hit the shops to get what we need?" Mia suggested.

"I am willing to pay any expenses, so perhaps we should stay together," the sorceress said.

"Well, you can stick with Nessa, but I've got enough gold to buy my own supplies," Mia said. The elf began to walk away into the market.

"I can afford my own gear too," Dralock added. He turned to follow Mia.

Aiyanna watched them walk off, then turned to Nessa. "Well, then let's go. I will buy you anything you need, and consider it payment for your duties thus far," the sorceress explained.

Aiyanna walked around looking for odd things and gem stone sellers.Also fresh vegetable and etc.

"Nessa, lets hurry up and get your gears too, before we collapse from exhaustion."

Aiyanna said as she packed her supplies in to the bag.

"Fair enough." Nessa replied as he followed Aiyanna.

"I won't need much, I packed well before leaving home and I kept Jonas' supplies."

Nessa didn't feel bad about taking his friend's posessions, he kept nothing of sentiment and the dead have no nead for trivial things. Plus, commoners rarely have the luxury of burying anything that would be far more useful to the living. Were he to died instead, Nessa would have expected no less.

Aiyanna just nodded in reply and swooped through the market again.

Aiyanna picked up several supplied for maintaing his leather gears and more food supplies.

"I think that should do for now...but seriously would like to go back and rest. How about you Nessa?"

Nessa's attention was divided between Aiyanna and a gorgeous tapestry on display in one of the merchant's tents.

"You go ahead, I think I'll look around a bit more and catch up."

OOC: Send Aiyanna back to the shrine, not an inn.

IC: Mia and Dralock made their rounds through the market and picked up a few items. Neither of them needed much, but Mia picked up a few horse care supplies.

After finding what they needed, they circled back and found Nessa and Aiyanna. "Hey!" Mia called as they approached. "On to the horse market then?" she suggested.

Aiyanna sighed. She forgot their main purpose, but she was too exhausted to continue shopping, so the sorceress picked out a few coins from her purse amd gave them to Mia. "Please, pick out a horse for me. I will go rest at the shrine," the sorceress said.

"Alright," Mia said. Aiyanna turned away and walked back to the Marfa Shrine. Mia glanced back to Nessa. "Well, let's go get some horses," she told the young fighter, then spun on her heal to continue toward the horse market.

OOC: Ok, guess I'll just move on.

IC: Novice's horse market was on a street just off the market, but settled within the confines of the town. A maze of pens containing horses, donkeys, ponies, cows, and other livestock covered an entire block. Breeders, farmers, and merchants rented out a pen or two for their stock and waited for buyers.

The spread of horses wasn't too varied, it mostly contained either large work horses or smaller palfreys for riding. Mia paused at the entrance of the horse market and counted out the money Aiyanna gave her.

She gave Nessa five Raidens and a few extra gold peices. "You know what to look for in a horse, right?" Mia asked the young man.

Nessa thought back to a few years before when his father brought him along to pick out a new horse after Thule died. Since Nessa's father was in the Marmo cavalry he had no trouble spotting a good one and thankfully passed on some of that knowledge to his son.

"I know enough to get a fair deal." The boy said as he accepted to money.

"Alright, then go find yourself a good one," Mia replied, sending Nessa off with a playful pat on his butt.

She turned back to the dwarf. "Let's get going! We've got two horses to find," the elf said, then walked into the maze of pens to browse.

Nessa's face turned a slight shade of red as he felt a light pat on his back side and mumbled that he'd be back soon.

He then head down to the stable as he tried to recall what to look for and how much to haggle.

Mia and Dralock wandered the pens looking for a palfrey suited for Aiyanna and a stronger horse for them. The first one they came across was a strong warmblood, a combination of a lighter breed and heavy breed. A buckskin gelding with a solid build. Mia haggled the price and was able to get him for one Raiden, probably because the breeder had a number of other horses to sell.

With her new horse, Mia continued the search for a good horse for Aiyanna. Finally, she found a pretty little bay Krisoon mare. The horse was middle-aged, but had an even temper from years of experiance. She cost eight Raidens, but Aiyanna was loaded. They could afford it.

Mia purchased the neccesary tack, but gave Dralock the heavy saddles to carry. There was no need to saddle them tonight. The elf and dwarf with their two new horses headed out of the livestock market, then waited for Nessa to return.

Nessa didn't bother picking out a warhorse since he had no idea how to fight on horse back. He trusted his fighting ability more with his feet firmly planted on the ground, and figured he would dismount during any conflict.

It didn't take him long to pick one out, like his sword, the horse called to him as though he were the one being chosen.

It took some haggling and a feigned walk away but Nessa eventually got a good price on the mount as well as an ugly but functional saddle. With nothing more to do Nessa rejoined Mia and Drolack outside the market area.
